1. cruel use of power: cruelty and injustice in the exercise of power or authority over others
2. oppressive government: oppressive government by one or more people who exercise absolute power cruelly and unjustly
3. state ruled by tyrant: a country or state under the power of an oppressive ruler
Tyranny is kind of an old fashioned word that we don't use as much these days. So I put up the definition as a clear reminder of it's meaning. Who knows, it probably isn't "politically correct" as far as the libs are concerned. Tyranny is mentioned in a letter I saw on Facebook from a friend, and I really wanted to share it. The letter is from someone in the military...
I wanted to write you all and let you know that everyone of you that stands up against tyranny by speaking out, voting, or whatever it is that you do you have given me hope for this world once more. You honor those of us that have served th...is nation by what you are doing, and it is all of you that are the true hero's in all of this. We men and women of arms are only doing what we have sworn to do, and that is upholding the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. You are all doing what you can out of love for your families, for your nation, and for your freedoms without an oath. Each and every one of you that speak out, tells a neighbor, tells a friend, or a family member about the truth of what is going on stand to be scorned, ridiculed, and excluded but you do it anyway. That is HONOR, COURAGE, AND COMMITMENT and I am proud to stand beside you in all of this! All of you have restored faith to many of us who have served in the military and are still serving, and you have shown us that you are not afraid to stand against tyranny any longer. Thank you all so much for doing what you are doing, and know that there are those of us out there that have and will always have your backs! God bless you all, your families, your neighbors, and God bless all of us in this peaceful fight! WE SHALL NO LONGER STAND DIVIDED, BUT UNITED!
Every country from the beginning of time has needed to control and enforce immigration or else lose their country to someone else. This isn't just an Arizona issue or an American issue. This video is an example of one of the building blocks that leads to destruction and the possible loss of a country.
Why do so many people want to come here for what America has to offer, just to turn around and change it when they get here? Then America ceases to be the America everyone was scrambling to get a piece of. The answer is, as it usually is, knowledge and understanding. People aren't coming in these droves with the knowledge and understanding of what made America great. That is one of the reasons legal immigration involves studying and taking test to become a citizen!
The frightening thing, is liberals have successfully been dumbing down American education for decades now. So when politicians like President Obama keep encouraging "the young people need to get out and vote! The future lies in their hands", they have a better chance of success at accomplishing their socialist goals of power and control.
But conservatives had a lot of success in this election!! Yeah!!! Fortunately, I think a lot of "young people" were lazy yesterday and didn't vote. I know most of my young classmates at school were! They just don't bother to really learn what is going on. If there isn't immediate gratification, so many people just aren't interested.
Check out this moron from right here in my hometown Tucson, AZ. It is still election day as I am posting this. I am hoping and praying there are enough people with common sense to vote conservative. Good luck in your hometown tonight!
Just a reminder that we all need to do our part to make a difference. We need to do all we can and vote to protect the constitution and our freedoms. This video is something an amazing 79 year old patriotic American woman has done to try and make a difference in todays crumbling society. I take care of elderly people for a living and I always love to hear their stories about "back in the day". Now is the time to make our days a little bit more like "back in the day".
This video has had well over 2 million hits, but it is the first time I've seen it. I love the amazing ability the artist has for making our forefathers look so real. More real to me than any other painting I've ever seen.
It is sad and quite unbelievable to me that more Americans don't see what is happening to our country. The devastating effects of what will happen if our leaders keep trampling on the greatest constitution ever written. The greatest in all of history. None has ever compared to it. It is also the longest lasting written constitution in history...and it is so close to hanging on by a thread.
This video is title "The Forgotten Man". The question is..."Is it the forgotten because of the blind?" I hope, pray, and speak out that the bling might see and start taking corrective action this November. And diligently thereafter.
This woman is seriously messed up about "God" and "miracles". Charity should come from individuals NOT the government! Plus God wants us to obey the commandments AND the law. She is here illegally and just thinks that is ok. With so many people like her (and Obama) we should just hang a sign from the Statue of Liberty that says... "Welcome to the Land of Fruits and Nuts".
Do you ever feel like you are getting "held up" before you even get to the bank? We need to STOP the government from getting bigger and bigger & taking more and more of our money. Which translates to taking away more of our freedom! Vote for a FREE America!
Here is a sampling of the doctrines of Islam which motivate the hearts and minds of all religious Moslems:
FROM THE KORAN:
-- The unbelievers among the people of the book and the pagans shall burn forever in the fire of Hell. They are the vilest of all creatures. (98.6).
-- Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve. (8.55)
--The unbelievers are your inveterate enemy. (4:101)
-- Mohammed is God's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another. (48:29).
-- It is unlawful for a believer to kill another believer, accidents excepted. (4:92)
-- Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends. (5:51)
-- Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God's religion shall reign supreme. (8:40)
-- Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme. (2:193)
-- The true believers fight for the cause of God, but the infidels fight for the devil. (4:76)
-- We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. (3:151)
-- I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers. (8:12)
FROM THE SAYINGS OF MUHAMMAD:
-- Muhammad said to the Jews: "If you embrace Islam, you will be safe. You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. “
-- Allah's Apostle said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' "
-- Mohammed said, "I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and whoever says, " None has the right to be worshipped but Allah , his life and property will be saved by me." (otherwise it will not).
-- Mohammed said, "Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him."
-- Mohammed said, " No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir" (infidel).
-- Muhammad said: "Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war, …"
In addition, the most popular manual of Islamic sacred law, approved by the highest Islamic religious authorities of Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, says: "Jihad means to make war on non-Muslims." What could be clearer than that?
And, how about this:
Ayatollah Khomeini, the most important Moslem leader of the 20th Century, said: "Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those who say this are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured? Islam says: Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter their armies.... Islam says: whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! the sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other Koranic psalms and Hadiths urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim."
PARIS - Friday in Paris. A hidden camera shows streets blocked by huge crowds of Muslim worshippers and enforced by a private security force.
This is all illegal in France: the public worship, the blocked streets, and the private security. But the police have been ordered not to intervene.
(Photo: Woman in a niqab walks near Eiffel Tower in Paris, 24 June 2009/Gonzalo Fuentes)
It shows that even though some in the French government want to get tough with Muslims and ban the burqa, other parts of the French government continue to give Islam a privileged status.
An ordinary French citizen who has been watching the Islamization of Paris decided that the world needed to see what was happening to his city. He used a hidden camera to start posting videos on YouTube. His life has been threatened and so he uses the alias of "Maxime Lepante. "
Good things come to those who wait and those who work hard. We here at home only had to wait, our military men and women had to work hard.
So many people in this modern day of convenience and brilliant technology are spoiled by instant gratification. That includes many politicians. I am grateful for those soldiers who fought for our liberty and the liberty of Iraqui people, and the conservative leaders who supported them all the way.
Here are some interesting excerpts from an article written by Robert on Jihad Watch-
"Anti-Muslim" is a term that Islamic supremacists and their Leftist enablers like to use of people who are fighting for human rights against Sharia -- and it's easy to see why: it frames their opponents as "bigots" and "haters," takes the focus away from their anti-woman, anti-free speech, anti-free thought, anti-equality of rights agenda, and has the added bonus of stirring up their more bloody-minded coreligionists to violence.
I am not "anti-Muslim." I am anti-Sharia, anti-jihad, anti-oppression, anti-terror, and so should be every free person.
I especially love these last two sentences about not being "anti-Muslim". Remember it to share with others when you are accused of being "anti-Muslim" or not supporting the Constitution with freedom of religion. I recently was accused of even DESTROYING the Constitution because I am actively trying to do my part to stop radical Islam and Shariah Law from infecting our country, spreading it's poison, and stealing our freedoms. THAT is what will actually destroy our Constitution.
I am a firm believer in freedom of religion. The sad thing is that many Muslims are hiding behind our freedom of religion when their religion can't be separated from their perverse laws, culture, and sick need to control the world.
Remember... A person's freedom is forfeited when it takes away the freedom of others.
Little-known fact: Obama's failed stimulus program cost more than the Iraq war By: Mark Tapscott
Editorial Page Editor
08/23/10 11:32 AM EDT
Expect to hear a lot about how much the Iraq war cost in the days ahead from Democrats worried about voter wrath against their unprecedented spending excesses.
The meme is simple: The economy is in a shambles because of Bush's economic policies and his war in Iraq. As American Thinker's Randall Hoven points out, that's the message being peddled by lefties as diverse as former Clinton political strategist James Carville, economist Joseph Stiglitz, and The Nation's Washington editor, Christopher Hayes.
The key point in the mantra is an alleged 3 trillion cost for the war. Well, it was expensive to be sure, in both blood and treasure, but, as Hoven notes, the CBO puts the total cost at $709 billion. To put that figure in the proper context of overall spending since the war began in 2003, Hoven provides this handy CBO chart showing the portion of the annual deficit attributable to the conflict:
But there is much more to be said of this data and Hoven does an admirable job of summarizing the highlights of such an analysis:
* Obama's stimulus, passed in his first month in office, will cost more than the entire Iraq War -- more than $100 billion (15%) more.
* Just the first two years of Obama's stimulus cost more than the entire cost of the Iraq War under President Bush, or six years of that war.
* Iraq War spending accounted for just 3.2% of all federal spending while it lasted.
* Iraq War spending was not even one quarter of what we spent on Medicare in the same time frame.
* Iraq War spending was not even 15% of the total deficit spending in that time frame. The cumulative deficit, 2003-2010, would have been four-point-something trillion dollars with or without the Iraq War.
* The Iraq War accounts for less than 8% of the federal debt held by the public at the end of 2010 ($9.031 trillion).
* During Bush's Iraq years, 2003-2008, the federal government spent more on education that it did on the Iraq War. (State and local governments spent about ten times more.)
Just some handy facts to recall during coming weeks as Obama and his congressional Democratic buddies get more desperate to put the blame for their spending policies on Bush and the war in Iraq. For more from Hoven, go here.
This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is said to be Dr. Emanuel Tanay, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.
A German's View on Islam~
A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything.. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'
We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.
The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.
Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts--the fanatics who threaten our way of life.
Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it before it's too late. ~Dr. Emanuel Tanay
It is in the best interest of the millions of peace-loving Muslims, Americans and people from all over the world if we do all we can to protect and preserve a peaceful way of life for as many as we can. There are millions and millions already who have lost their freedoms. We can't let the cancer continue to consume everyone in it's path.
A wolf in sheep's clothing is still a wolf! Don't be confused by the fluff and get the wool pulled over your eyes.
“It is better for you either to accept Islam or agree to pay Jizya and consent to remain obedient to Allah . . . If you do not accept these terms . . . I shall have to wage war (to bring peace and security).” —Muhammad
These same patterns and political mandates have been used over and over by Muslims since 610 A.D. to invade and conquer many civilizations and nations throughout the world, and to eradicate human rights and freedoms in those lands. Iran once was called Persia and was Zorastrian. Egypt was Christian. What was once a Hindu civilization was conquered and made into Pakistan, which is now part of the Axis of Jihad, along with Iran and Saudi Arabia. Afghanistan was Buddhist for thousands of years. Now its chief exports are heroin and Islamic terrorism.
“When we decide to destroy a population, We (first) send a definite order to those among them who are given the good things of this life and yet transgress; so that the word is proved true against them: then (it is) We destroy them utterly.” —Quran 17:16
In every instance where Islam has conquered and “destroyed utterly” a nation or civilization, the key to the conquest was the establishment of mosques, which are political and military command and control centers for Islam, and which all point toward the seat of Islamic power: the Kaaba.
Mosques and the Fallacy of the “Moderate Muslim”
The majority of Germans during World War II were not active members of the Nazi party, were not waging war, and were not involved in the holocaust. The leaders, though, were active members of the Nazi party, were waging war, and were involved in the holocaust.
The majority of Russians and eastern Europeans under the rule of the U.S.S.R. were not trying to spread Communism throughout the world, and were not threatening and waging war and revolution, but were going about their daily lives trying to survive. The leaders, though, were doing everything they could to spread Communism throughout the world, and were threatening and waging war and revolution.
Throughout history, since 610 A.D., the leaders of Islam have been waging Universal Jihad around the world for the purpose of Islamic totalitarian domination of the world. It has never mattered what percentage of the Muslim population was “peaceful” or “moderate.” Peace and moderation are not relevant to the totalitarian mandates of Islam’s political documents, and Islam’s leaders always follow the totalitarian mandates of Universal Jihad contained in them.
There are post-Nazi democracies. There are post-Communist democracies. There are no post-Islamic democracies. Literal Islam, as contained in its political documents, is the consummate totalitarianism. Neither Nazism nor Communism had a metaphysical factor, as does Islam. Islam uses its metaphysics as a wedge to drive in its totalitarian political doctrines.
Once Islam has established itself sufficiently in any nation, it seeks to overthrow any existing regime or constitution or law, and replace it with Islamic theocracy. Even the most “moderate” Muslim is bound to obey Islamic law, and so is bound to fight if ordered to fight:
“When you are called (by the Muslim ruler) for fighting, go forth immediately.” —Hadith Sahih Bukhari 4:52:79:Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas
All Islamic mosques have Islamic leaders (rulers) who can call Muslims for fighting, and as such are satellite headquarters for spreading Literal Islam’s political doctrine of world domination and totalitarianism—no matter how many “moderate Muslims” they serve.
Mosques and the Worldwide Islamic State
Islam is a de facto political state wherever it exists anywhere in the world. The Quran is its constitution. The Kaaba is its seat of power, still in the control of the regime that occupied it in 630 A.D. All Muslims in the world, regardless of nationality, are required to travel to the Kaaba at least once in their lifetime and pay homage to it.
The fact that nations and international political institutions in the world do not recognize Islam as a de jure state is irrelevant. Muhammad himself declared it as a state, and Islam’s own political documents declare it to be a state, and, ipso facto, it always is a state-within-a-state, governed by the Quran and Sharia law internally, anywhere that it has not yet gained full power and control.
“The Believers are but a single brotherhood.” —Quran 49:10
“A Muslim has no nationality except his belief.” —Syed Qutb
“Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a State on the basis of its own ideology and program.” — Syed Abul A’ala Maududi Just as our Constitution of the United States binds and identifies us as a single political and legal union of non-contiguous states, territories, political groups, and people, so the Quran binds and identifies all Islamic nations and all Muslims as a single political and legal union of non-contiguous nations, territories, political groups and people, regardless of geographic boundaries, whose seat of power is the occupied Kaaba. All Islamic Imams, in every mosque everywhere in the world, are bound to the Quran as supreme law.
As we have seen, Islamic law gives Islamic Imams the power to order Muslims to fighting. The German Max Weber, who had considerable influence on international law and politics, defined “state” as that entity that has a “monopoly on the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory.”
Islam declares that the Quran and Sharia law are divine, and, as such, are the only “legitimate” law in the world. In that way, Islam “self-legitimizes” its right to use physical force anywhere in the world, and the right of every Imam in every mosque in the world to call for physical force and violence at any time. This makes every Imam in every mosque a military leader.
By Vijay Kumar: The Muslim mosque: A state within a state
Ask the Imams of Mosques, the Muslim leaders, and the Islamic organizations in the US and worldwide to sign this declaration (See below)
by Tawfik Hamid
After the problem of Ground Zero Mosque has escalated it becomes an urgent necessity to distinguish 'Moderate' from 'Radical' Islam. Without making such a distinction the US and the rest of the world will remain divided regarding this issue. Debates about the issue can be endless unless we define the words 'radical' and 'moderate'.
Mosque leaders, Islamic scholars, and organizations who want to be considered Moderates MUST clearly and unambiguously declare the following declaration in their media outlets and on their websites.
I suggest that you send this declaration to Mosque leaders and the Islamic organizations inside the US and worldwide to see if they are ready to accept such a declaration or not. Please feel free to circulate this newsletter so that we can start a process that allows us to distinguish radical from moderate Islam.
Declaration of Beliefs of Muslim Moderates -
I (We) are Muslims who want contemporary understandings of Islam to replace currently predominant harsh and radical (Salafi/Wahabbi) interpretations of our religion. We therefore declare that:
1- Redda Law, the Sharia Law that allows the killing of Muslims who convert to other faiths, must be banned in Islamic teachings and in Sharia legal doctrine. Islamic countries that practice Sharia must stop the practice of this law and must admit that Freedom of belief and the right to convert to other faith or believe is a basic right that must be given to all Muslims.
2- Current mainstream Sharia doctrines justify the use of violence against women. They encourage men to beat their wives to discipline them. They allow women accused of adultery to be stoned to death. These doctrines are barbarically inhumane, non-egalitarian, and teach Muslim children to be violent. These teachings must be ended by reinterpreting the Islamic text that justifies such violence.
3- Traditional Sharia doctrines teach Muslims that they must engage in war so that Islam will dominate the world. When Islam becomes dominant, Non-Muslims are offered three options: to convert to Islam, to pay Jizzia (a humiliating tax), or to be killed. These doctrines run contrary to modern respect for diversity and for personal freedom of speech and belief. This understanding of Jihad that seeks domination of Islam over other peoples must no longer be regarded as an Islamic value and its teaching as a duty for Muslims must end.
The early Islamic wars known as "Futohaat Islameia" were fought to implement this doctrine of Jihad. These wars therefore should now be regarded as un-Islamic and un-justifiable.
4- Jews are individuals who deserve the same respect accorded to all individuals. They should not be called "pigs and monkeys." The Islamic teaching that Muslims must fight and kill all Jews before the end of days is totally incorrect and unacceptable as it does not exist in the Quran. All teachings that encourage anti-Semitic attitudes, violence or disrespect toward Jews must be declared un-Islamic.
5- Slavery is a crime against humanity. All Sharia laws that justify slavery in our modern times must not be taught any more. Muslim scholars must have a clear and loud voice against slavery.
6- Islamic Sharia laws currently permit the killing homosexuals. These laws also are advocating a crime against our fellow human beings. They must be declared un-Islamic and their implementation must be considered criminal.
Dr. Tawfik Hamid
Comment: The above violent teachings, which currently are taught in mainstream Islamic books in America, are implemented in countries that allow governance according to Sharia Law. Future Muslim generations must be protected from these destructive doctrines, interpretations and customs.
These violent Sharia doctrines must be replaced with clear and unconditional explanations of why they no longer are valid.
Anything short of a fully clear and unequivocal stand against these doctrines indicates passive approval. Therefore, all Islamic leaders who genuinely consider themselves to be Muslim moderates must post these principles in English and in Arabic in full public view on their websites and declare them in their media outlets.
Failure to publically post and support these principles should be interpreted as clear evidence that a leader's mosque or Islamic organization must be considered radical.
Democrat, Independent, or Republican....the second half of this email should make all of us very sick, send this on .....especially the second half......
READ TO THE VERY END!
AND VERY DISTURBING!!!
By Dewie Whetsell,
As posted in comments on Greta's article referencing the MOVEON ad about Sarah Palin.
The last 45 of my 66 years I've spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska. I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here's the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it. It's not about persona, style, rhetoric, it's about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I'm about to mention here.
1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor's office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican's "Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.
2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES." Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, "don't let the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.
3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as "pork." She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the "when-hell-freezes-over" stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor's jet because it was extravagant.
Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor's cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning - I imagine - that she's packing heat herself). I'm still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.
4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed "gosh and golly" mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn't impress you, then you're trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.
5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn't start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.
6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that's just a cover-up. I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won't be holding my breath.
By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn't let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.
You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents' wives.
So "You go, Girl." I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals.
I rest my case. Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.
If you've read this far...............................................now ,open your eyes..........

There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady's social life. One wonders why she needs so much help, at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary, only had three; Jackie Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help came from the President's own pocket.

Pledge of Allegiance (TOTALLY AWESOME!)
Since the Pledge of Allegiance & The Lords Prayer
Are not allowed in Schools anymore
Because the word 'God' is mentioned...
A Kid in Ohio wrote the attached...
NEW School prayer :
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom thing..
The law is specific, the law is precise..
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
We can carry smut, but not the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
If you aren't ashamed to do this,
Please pass this on.
'If you are ashamed of me,
I will be ashamed of you before my Father..'
I love this man! I just found him from a friend who posted this on Facebook. The history and education mixed with energy and humor is great. A reminder that true freedom comes from a LIMITED government as outlined in our Constitution. More black Americans need to embrace this freedom that their ancestors fought for. We are all indoctrinated by a liberal education system that would keep us more and more dependant on a government that seeks to have more and more power and control over the people.
Sorry I was down and out the last couple of weeks. Happy belated Independence Day! A holiday that truly means a lot to me. I am grateful for the many sacrifices of our Founding Fathers. This is the time of year that is an especially strong reminder of the great blessing America is to us even in these weakening times. It is a time of year that we remember how great America was in the beginning and how great it should be still. May we all stay strong in defending our freedom, our liberty, and do all we can to prevent our elected officials from "hacking" away at our Constitution.
Here is a motivational video I received on Facebook. I welcome any contributions if anyone would like to send their videos or opinions in support of Remember America Gr8...
The imam behind plans to build a controversial Ground Zero mosque yesterday refused to describe Hamas as a terrorist organization. According to the State Department's assessment, "Hamas terrorists, especially those in the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, have conducted many attacks, including large-scale suicide bombings, against Israeli civilian and military targets."
Asked if he agreed with the State Department's assessment, Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf told WABC radio, "Look, I'm not a politician. "The issue of terrorism is a very complex question," he told interviewer Aaron Klein. "There was an attempt in the '90s to have the UN define what terrorism is and say who was a terrorist. There was no ability to get agreement on that."
Asked again for his opinion on Hamas, an exasperated Rauf wouldn't budge. "I am a peace builder. I will not allow anybody to put me in a position where I am seen by any party in the world as an adversary or as an enemy," Rauf said, insisting that he wants to see peace in Israel between Jews and Arabs. http://nypost.com/
What a load of crap! Usually I would say you need to read between the lines a bit to get the true meaning of what most political and Muslim leaders are really saying. But this is obvious avoidance of the truth. "the 'issue' of terrorism is a very complex question"? No it's not! And you can't downplay terrorism as an "issue". "I will not allow anybody to put me in a position where I am seen by any party in the world as an adversary or as an enemy"!!! We are so sorry you are having a difficult time with someone exposing your shroud of deception. Of course you don't want to be seen as the adversary or enemy that you truly are because your great plan of Inception is just getting started. After all you still have a lot of deceiving to do. Reminds me of the old saying, "beware of a wolf in sheeps clothing".
Their plan is simple...say what they want to hear and do what you gotta do. In the end the Americans won't know what hit them.
Only if we don't listen. Only if we are not aware. Only if we don't take action to stop them. Learn about Islam and Sharia Law. Protect America. Defend the constitution. Don't cripple yourself with political correctness. Vote out ignorant and liberal politicians in our upcoming elections. Help keep America Great!
The Washington Times While world media and political attention is focused on the Israel-"Freedom Flotilla" incident, Iranian mullahs in Tehran are celebrating their brilliant war strategy in advancing their nuclear program. As world-renowned masters of the game of chess, Iranian mullahs can add "strategic marketing, public relations and media planning" to their resume.
Iran, anticipating a damning report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) revealing Iran has more than 2 tons of enriched uranium (two warheads' worth), had been actively working with Israel's enemies to divert world attention away from the alarming findings. The IAEA report, released on May 31, the day of the raid, was virtually unreported by the media, as all eyes had turned to Israel and Gaza.
Iran is manipulating operations in the Middle East and building alliances with like-minded jihadists driven by the same goal. Iran's strategic operations surrounding Israel include setting up bases of operation and creating controlled and planned conflicts as part of a bigger strategy not only to suffocate Israel but also to distract the world community from its own nuclear development plans...
...Iran has been working with North Korea, Syria, China and Russia and is actively courting Turkey to create a counterbalance to American power in the Middle East. A Russian submarine flying an Iranian flag docked in Beirut last month, where what is believed to be chemical weapons were unloaded by people wearing "hazmat" or chemical warfare suits. Syria, working with Iran, has supplied Hezbollah with Scud missiles able to reach all of Israel. Iran's plans for Israel are as clear as the writing on the wall. Read More...
The flotilla incident is nothing more than a spark in a larger web of explosives set and organized by Iran and is the first step toward accomplishing Iran's ultimate goals. First, create whatever distraction is necessary, preferably one that inflames world hatred of Israel, to buy time to finish the bomb. Second, attain the bomb and become the Islamic superpower of the world, with the ability to wipe Israel off the map. This will usher in a new era of hegemony in the Middle East.
The stakes are high, and time is running out. Western governments must stand together against Iran and the new axis of tyrannical power that is developing. While it is Israel that will soon face a nuclear-armed Iran, in the long term, it will be Europe and America facing an Iran capable of projecting its totalitarian ideology across the globe.
TEHRAN (Reuters) - A senior Iranian cleric has decreed dogs are "unclean" and should not be kept as pets -- a move aimed at discouraging Western-style dog ownership in the Islamic state, a newspaper reported on Saturday. Dogs are considered "unclean" under Islamic tradition but, while relatively rare in Iran, some people do keep them as pets.
By issuing a fatwa -- a religious ruling -- Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi has sent a clear message that this trend must stop. "Friendship with dogs is a blind imitation of the West," he was quoted as saying in Javan daily. "There are lots of people in the West who love their dogs more than their wives and children." Guard dogs and sheep dogs are considered acceptable under Islamic law but Iranians who carry dogs in their cars or take them to public parks can be stopped by police and fined.
The Koran does not explicitly prohibit contact with dogs, Shirazi said, but Islamic tradition showed it to be so. "We have lots of narrations in Islam that say dogs are unclean." The interpretation of religious rules on personal conduct is a constant source of debate and potential conflict in Iran which has been an Islamic republic since a revolution ousted the Western-backed Shah in 1979. ~by Robin Pomeroy
Remember their goal is to make their law OUR law. There are too many crazy laws under Islamic law that rob people of their freedom and human rights. We need to stand up for liberty and do what's right. Do what you can to support our Constitution that upholds the freedoms we so enjoy. Education and knowledge are our greatest weapons. Help others to be aware. Share this blog and other great websites like ActForAmerica.org and StandUpAmericaUs.com.
Trailer for Khilafah Conference 2010 to be held in Sydney, Australia on July 4th 2010.
Venue: Grand Westella
Pay special attention at the end when they use a conglomeration of words to spell out "ISLAM" and "WEST". Hit the pause button so that you can take the time to read the words that are used. "The Struggle for Shariah!" Yes, there is the other big bad word to look out for. Shariah is their Islamic Law and form of government. The words that appalled me the most in the make-up of "WEST" was "Forced Freedom"! Excuse me!!! Sorry for us FORCING you to have YOUR OWN FREEDOM! It was a few hours ago that I first read that and I am still in absolute shock. Idiots!
The definition of Khilafah- means leader of the worldwide Islamic community. Religiously AND politically. Shariah Law goes hand in hand with Khilafah. The ultimate goal is to rule over all. It is accept Islam or it's death or enslavement. If any Muslim tries to tell you otherwise, they are just trying to deceive. It is appeasement. Historically from the 14th until 1924 there are centuries of proof based on actual history. It is the history of the Ottomans that tells the truth. The worst I found in my reading has been from the 1915 Genocides....
....In April 24 1915 the Ottoman authorities ordered the deportation of practically the entire Armenian and Assyrian Christian populations of eastern Asia Minor to Syria and Iraq, then part of the Ottoman Empire, and to massacre many of them. The genocide continued throughout the year. By the end of 1915, 1,500,000 Armenians and 250,000 Assyrians had been murdered. Many women were raped and children were kidnapped and enslaved to be brought up as Muslims. Many Christians – especially women - were crucified (the photographs are still extant).

Here is an image of the flags (there are two) of the Islamic Khilafah (state). One is the flag of jihad, and the other is the flag of the state. ~Glenn Stevens, 15 November 2000
The writings contains the Creed of Islam. These are not flags that I want to see waved in my country. They want to forcibly impose their religion on everyone in the West. They don't feel they are being allowed to fully worship and govern as Allah want them to here in the West. The answer is simple. GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WEST!
Quote from: "blueiedgod — March 24, 2007 — Sheikh Al Qaradawi who is regarded at a moderate in the UK in video is supporting and openly preaching Jihad. He Openly supports Abdullah Azzam the founder of Al Qaeda. This proves that there is no such thing as "moderate Islam" as one of the most "highly respected" imams in the West says he is against terrorism but in Arabic as a visitor to a Terror conference preaches Jihad. Time to stop fooling ourselves."
This is a MUST WATCH video when you can take the time. It is approximately 30 minutes long, but LOADED with astonishing information and truth. A must have for home schoolers and all teenagers to see, as they are not going to be taught ANY of this in school.
Radical Islam is not a small percentage when a majority of "moderates" either support or silently do nothing to stop radical Islam. Even still...what is a "small" percentage of 1.3 BILLION? This is like Hitler and his followers on steroids with the same devistating effects of a "radical" cancer. Knowledge is power. Learn and be strong.
The Fourth of July was traditionally celebrated as America's birthday, but the idea of an annual day specifically celebrating the Flag is believed to have first originated in 1885. BJ Cigrand, a schoolteacher, arranged for the pupils in the Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School, District 6, to observe June 14 (the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes) as 'Flag Birthday'. In numerous magazines and newspaper articles and public addresses over the following years, Cigrand continued to enthusiastically advocate the observance of June 14 as 'Flag Birthday', or 'Flag Day'.....
....Adults, too, participated in patriotic programs. Franklin K. Lane, Secretary of the Interior, delivered a 1914 Flag Day address in which he repeated words he said the flag had spoken to him that morning: "I am what you make me; nothing more. I swing before your eyes as a bright gleam of color, a symbol of yourself."
Inspired by these three decades of state and local celebrations, Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 - was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916. While Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after Wilson's proclamation, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.

The Only Flag That Doesn't Fly
The flowers are grown by seed companies. It's a beautiful place, close to Vandenberg AFB. Check out the dimensions of the flag. The Floral Flag is 740 feet long and 390 feet wide and maintains the proper Flag dimensions, as described in Executive Order #10834. This Flag is 6.65 acres and is the first Floral Flag to be planted with 5 pointed Stars, comprised of White Larkspur. Each Star is 24 feet in diameter; each Stripe is 30 feet wide. This Flag is estimated to contain more than 400,000 Larkspur plants, with 4-5 flower stems each, for a total of more than 2 million flowers.
I opened a new store on Zazzle.com. Just click on any of the products above to go check it out. Great stuff for Independence Day, voting season, or any day! Designing these products has been a good outlet for my disgust with Obama.
Here is a speach given by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd - Australia
I love this speach! Every country has the right to do this very same thing, and I wish the US would!
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday, March 17th to get out of Australia!, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..
Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. '
'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and! victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom; We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'
'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture. We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'
'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'. If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'
If only that were true for them! Yes, they are doing some to clean up the "spill", or should I say gusher, but it is hard to be clear with so many lies coming straight from the horse's mouth.
There are reports of booms floating ashore, BP workers walking beaches "texting" not cleaning. Some check in on beaches with tar, then leave 20-30 minutes later. States and business offering to do viable ideas but not able to get access to equipment, funding, support, etc. to help contain the spill. Other organizations and scientist giving proven suggestions for cleanup...but is anyone listening?
This is just so sad and devastating. Perhaps BP is waiting for Obama to flip the bill and bail them out?
President Obama’s pronouncements and actions have been undermining Israel, Marco Rubio, the Republican candidate for Senate in Florida, says in a Newsmax interview. In responding to the Israeli raid on a Turkish flotilla, Obama has ignored the fact that the flot...illa’s organizers and participants were looking for a confrontation and have “strong direct ties to Islamic fundamentalists, jihadists, and terrorists and to many who do not believe in Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state,” Rubio, a former speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, says.“I believe that there is an organized, systematic attempt to de-legitimize Israel’s right to exist and to undermine Israel’s right to defend itself,” Rubio says. “And so Israel has never needed strong American support more than it needs it now.”
Yet, Rubio says, “Some of the pronouncements and actions of this administration over the last year have emboldened those who are trying to de-legitimize Israel.”
As outlined in the Newsmax story Jews Turn Against Obama, in part because of Obama’s tilt against Israel, Jewish support for him has plummeted...
...Rubio says he is for the new Arizona immigration law as passed and against granting amnesty to illegal immigrants: “I think everyone’s first choice is for the federal government to deal with this issue squarely. So I hope that instead of being a model for 49 other states, Arizona’s law becomes a wake-up call for the federal government to once and for all deal with the issue of border security.” Asked how the Republican Party can woo Hispanics, Rubio says, “The No. 1 issue in the Hispanic community in America is not immigration. It’s economic empowerment. It’s the desire to do better and to leave our children better off, and there’s only one economic system in the world where that has been possible time and again, and that’s the American free enterprise system.” [I love this, coming from a legal immigrant to America. As I have said before, it's not about race, it's about being legal.]

My support goes out to Israel, true Hispanic Americans (legal), and maintaining our free enterprise system so that all American citizens can have their piece of the American Dream. My support does NOT go to Obama. Let's all do what we can towards the good! As a reminder, a great place to start is at Act For America. http://actforamerica.org/
