Barack Obama-Science-and Global Warming

"We are restoring science to its rightful place. On March 9th, I signed an executive memorandum with a clear message: Under my administration, the days of science taking a back seat to ideology are over. (Applause.) Our progress as a nation –- and our values as a nation –- are rooted in free and open inquiry. To undermine scientific integrity is to undermine our democracy. It is contrary to our way of life."

On June 26 cbsnews.com reported that the author of a 98 page EPA report critical of global warming apparently had his report squashed by the Obama administration. According to CBS news...

"Less than two weeks before the agency formally submitted its pro-regulation recommendation to the White House, an EPA center director quashed a 98-page report that warned against making hasty "decisions based on a scientific hypothesis that does not appear to explain most of the available data."

The author of the report one Alan Carlin- a long time EPA researcher -said in the CBS interview that he felt as though his boss ,Al McGartland, was in danger of losing his job if he didn't get Carlin working on "something else." Carlin also stated that he felt as though the source of this attempt to deep six his report was "obviously coming from higher levels." In other words the White House.

This is truly intriguing, especially in the light of the Presidents statement to the National Academy of Science on April 27 of this year that science taking a backseat to ideology are over. It brings to mind remembrances of the accusations against the Bush administration of suppressing studies that were favorable to the theory of global warming.

In the preface to his report to the EPA Carlin writes... " We have become increasingly more concerned that EPA and many other agencies and countries have paid to little attention to the science of global warming. EPA and others have tended to accept the findings of outside groups, particularly the IPCC and the CCSP, as being correct without a careful critical examination of their conclusions and documentation. If they should be found to be inncorrect at a later date... it appears likely ... that EPA may be blamed for this error."

This is truly interesting that these remarks-as well as- the rest of this report may have been censored especially considering that in the afore mentioned address to the The National Academy of Sciences Mr. Obama went on to state... "I want to be sure that facts are driving scientific decisions -- and not the other way around."

Which way is it going to be Science driving policy or policy driving science? It looks as though science may be losing out-and considering that a growing number of scientists are increasingly critical of global warming- one has to ask is the present agenda of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barack Obama, to enact sweeping global warming legislation, legislation that could severely impact all areas of the United States economy, based on science or ideology? This writer is forced to conclude it is based on ideology.

House Democrats declare war on America!

"Washington, Jun 27 - The American people deserve to know what’s in the legislation their representatives in Congress are voting on. That was the fundamental principle behind House Republican Leader John Boehner’s (R-OH) hour-long speech on the floor of the House last night, in which he read portions of a 300-plus page amendment Democrats added in the dark of night to Speaker Pelosi’s already 1,200-page national energy tax legislation. The legislation is going to raise electricity prices, increase gasoline prices, and ship American jobs overseas to countries like China and India. It also will be a bureaucratic nightmare overseen by a confusing web of government agencies that will take and redistribute trillions of dollars from family budgets and workers’ payrolls. Following is just a sampling of the national media’s coverage of Boehner’s unprecedented speech – and the House GOP’s stand against the Democrats’ costly, jobs-killing national energy tax..."
Hurrah for John Boehner! I saw his mini filibuster on C-Span. I couldn't believe the garbage that Rep. Boehner was reading from the "stealth" 300 page amendment that the Democrats pushed into the cap an tax bill that they passed last night. If it had been me I would have thrown the thing to the floor, stomped on it, and called It what it is garbage!
This monstrosity seeks to regulate virtually every single aspect of American life. No one or no institution is safe. It has provisions for ascertaining the energy efficiency of every home in America, and then making people reveal what their official government energy rating is before they can sell their house.
As written and passed this bill -if it becomes law- will extend the already too numerous tentacles of the federal government even further into the manufacturing, mining, energy production,and finance sectors of the economy. And that's no where near a complete list of all the areas this thing interferes in.
Whats even worse this abomination, is chock full of new agencies, programs, and expenditures, in order to carry out the provisions of this bill and to achieve the stated goals that Democrats want to achieve. And what are said stated goals? well according to the 300 page Waxman amendment they are as follows. House bill 2454 states the goals are too "To create clean energy jobs, achieve energy Independence, reduce global warming pollution and transition to a clean energy economy."
The truth however is something quite different, as Rep. Boehner pointed out, this bill will "Raise electricity prices, increase gasoline prices, and ship American jobs overseas..." At a time when we are losing our manufacturing base, plants are being closed down, and workers are losing their jobs in droves, this bill adds insult to injury.
At a time when gasoline prices are unaffordably high this is no time to cause them to go even higher just to satisfy the desires of Nancy Pelosi and the democrats.
The American clean energy and security act of 2009, as this bill is so euphemistically named, is in fact a declaration of war on every aspect of our economy and an assault on free market capitalism.
America can ill afford the nonsense and absolute stupidity that this bill will foist upon all of us. I urge anyone who reads this blog to call their senators and tell them you want this "Thing" killed when it gets to the senate.
May God save The United States of America.

The brave people of Iran yearn to be free!

Freedom! is it possible to say the word enough. Freedom! that is what the people of Iran are saying to the world. Freedom! The courageous people of Iran have taken to the street to exercise their natural right to object and protest the way their government is treating them.

The people of Iran are sick and tired of government bureaucrats, dictating every aspect of their lives. The mullahs, and the thugs, have made life in Iran a living hell, and the people are sick and tired of it. I speak only for myself but I strongly believe the majority of Americans feel solidarity with the people of Iran.

A former president said something to the effect that human beings, no matter where they live, regardless of nationality or religion, have a God given desire, to live free.

If you read this today, cry Freedom! It is the natural desire of all people.

A tribute to Neda Agha Soltan

The whole world now knows the story of Neda Aghan Solta, the 16 year old Iranian girl, shot down by the Revolutionary Thugs of Iran. Words cannot express how much this sad story makes my blood boil! Finally, today, Our President finally expressed "outrage, as well as ,"the outrage of the world, over how the Iranian thugs have been treating their people.

The death of this young woman is a reminder of the terrible price of freedom.

Thomas Jefferson said"The tree of liberty is watered with the blood of Patriots".

I fear many Americans have forgotten these timeless truths, and are all to willing, to trade freedom, for false prosperity, and the notion that government can give them lots, and lots, of something for nothing. I single out Democrats in particular, and liberals in general. They have taken our freedoms for granted, and even actively work, to undermine those freedoms.

In tribute to this young woman I reprint a posting from

by Tina Ehrami21-Jun-2009 Her name was Neda, she was only 16She was a young girl who got caught in between a bullet and her flesh and some place serene And now Iran will never be as it’s been
Her name was Neda and she wanted to show That fear of death wouldn’t keep her below And now all of you will come to know How far Iran’s people are willing to go
She’d been shouting and running, days on end She didn’t go to school or work, days on end She called out for justice, days on end But in the end for her it was just the end
She did what she could to get back what she lost She wanted her vote back that someone’d tossed But it’s a damn shame that this is what it cost!It’s a damn shame, but if we must, we must
Her name was Neda, she was only 16There was still so much that she should’ve seen But she’d seen enough, even as a teen She was so tired of things as they had been
Her name was Neda and she was taken too soon She was a beautiful child, her parent’s full moon But from now that moon will glow red and maroon So that people will start singing in a different tune
She took that bullet in her heart, for you and for me She wanted a better tomorrow, for you and for me Her name means ‘sign’ and this’s one for you to see That freedom’s worth dying for, so fight to be free!

Obama's tepid response to Iranian opression.

The audacity of hope. That was the mantra of the Obama campaign. But where has the audacity gone? The Iranian people, long oppressed , by the mullahs, and ,the ayatollahs, have finally had enough, and rebelled against the repressive oligarchy, that they have suffered under for so long. A movement for freedom, has started in Iran, and what does our glorious leader have to say?

Well, not much. It seems our President doesn't want to endanger his chances of negotiating with one of the worst dictators since Adolph Hitler.

What follows is the Presidential response to what is happening in Iran:

Office of the Press Secretary_______________________________________________________________For Immediate Release June 20, 2009
Statement from the President on Iran
The Iranian government must understand that the world is watching. We mourn each and every innocent life that is lost. We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people. The universal rights to assembly and free speech must be respected, and the United States stands with all who seek to exercise those rights. As I said in Cairo, suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away. The Iranian people will ultimately judge the actions of their own government. If the Iranian government seeks the respect of the international community, it must respect the dignity of its own people and govern through consent, not coercion. Martin Luther King once said - "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." I believe that. The international community believes that. And right now, we are bearing witness to the Iranian peoples’ belief in that truth, and we will continue to bear witness.

I applaud the President for saying ,"the United States stands with all who seek to exercise their rights to assembly as well as free speech. However I think our President could have been more "audacious" in his denunciation of the mullahs oppression of the Iranian people.
He could have been as bold and audacious as Ronald Reagan was in his denunciation of Soviet oppression In Poland, Afghanistan, and Nicaragua. Reagan probably would have responded in the following way...
Reagan didn't apologise, he didn't equivocate, he saw America's place in the world, as a champion of liberty, freedom, and democracy. What would Reagan do if he were here today? I believe he would strongly condemn the actions of the Iranian government, and call upon them to tear down the wall of oppression, and unleash the genius, creativity, and untapped resources of the Iranian people, as a free people.
In a word, Reagan would cry "Freedom". Today the people of Iran are crying "Freedom" The question is, does our government, as well as our glorious leader, have the "audacity of hope, to join in their audacious hope for freedom?

Irony, OBama, and North Korea

"The next president won't have time to get used to the office. We face many challenges here at home and many enemies abroad in this dangerous world," McCain said. "We don't want a president who invites 'testing' from the world at a time when our economy is in crisis and Americans are already fighting two wars

"The U.S. military is preparing for a possible intercept of a North Korean flagged ship suspected of proliferating weapons material in violation of a U.N. Security Council resolution passed last Friday" Fox News. Friday June, 19, 2009.

Is America on the brink of war with North Korea? No one can say for sure, but, things don't look good. Over the past weeks, our young President, has indeed been getting quite a test from the Dictator of North Korea.

Now in the latest chapter in this ongoing saga, a North Korean freighter, "The Kang Nam", is suspected of transporting material that has been banned by U.N. resolution. That's rich, that the U.N. could be resolute, about anything, seems almost a contradiction in terms.

Apparently, according to Fox News, the ship appears to be heading to Singapore, and may well be carrying "weaponry, missile parts or nuclear materials, a violation of U.N. Resolution 1874".

It seems, Kim Ill is spoiling for a fight. First was the announcement that he would restart his nuclear reactor. Then we learned he had detonated a nuclear device, and if that wasn't bad enough, he starts shooting off missiles, like a kid , with bottle rockets on the Fourth of July. Come to think of it that's when, it is speculated, he may shoot a missile toward Hawaii.

During the election, Joe Biden's statement, about the "Young President" being tested, stirred quite a controversy. I find it Ironic, that now that our President, is indeed being tested by North Korea, the Navy decides to send the U.S.S John S. McCain, in to do the job. Perhaps if, former Vietnam war veteran, and prisoner of war, John McCain, had been elected, we might not have found ourselves in this situation.

" Extremism In The Defense Of Liberty Is No Vice"

Acceptance speech, R.N.C, San Francisco, July 1964

Since the election of 2008 When our President, Barack OBama, was elected. It seems as though he, along with his accomplices in congress have been on a crusade to gather all- and I do mean -all power into Washington D.C. And unto them selves.
They seem to be following the same path as the Russian Communists of the Twentieth Century. Who sought to have everything centrally controlled.
The genius that has made this Nation great-is the notion- that individuals, local governments, and state governments, could come up with better solutions to the problems they face than a centralized government
Things have been happening lately that boggle the imagination, C.E.O.'s being fired by the government, companies being taken over by the government, and health care, being threatened by the government.
Our President and his minions in congress have been accumulating more and more power unto themselves. There's not a day goes by, that a new Department, Czar, or regulatory body, is not created by this president. At the same time the government seems to be less, and ,less responsive to the People. From the President on down this administration, and the Democrats in Congress, seek to bring "equality, and social justice, to the people. Salaries must be regulated, because it just isn't fair, for C.E.O.'s and top executive to be paid so much.
Companies must be regulated, because it's not fair for workers to take cuts, or even, be layed off, in order to save the company. It's not fair for big corporations , such as the oil companies, to make huge profits. Never mind that they also have huge expenses, and on average, only make about four cents, on every dollar they invest. While the Government makes more on a gallon if gas than they do. The financial sector must be regulated to bring "economic justice" to us all.
We've been down this road before. all the way back in the 1700"s, when King George the 3'rd took it upon himself, to usurp the power of local legislatures, replace Colonial Governor, and annul charters that gave certain rights to the Colonies.
Consider these words from our Declaration of Independance... "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed- That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
This greatest of political documents- in the history of man- goes on to list the grievances which our forefathers had against the King... "He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them." Given Barack isn't guilty of this specific trespass. But at his direction the Congress did dictate to the states how spending bills relate to the stimulus should be crafted, specifically, demanding that any stimulus spending states make be permanent.
"He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance." Does this sound familiar! especially the eating out their substance part. The harassment has already started, and if not vigorously opposed, will spread its evil tentacles into the lives ,as well as , livelihood of every man,women, and child .in this country
I don't want to be extreme. I have no desire for any kind of violence. Abraham Lincoln said" The Ballot is more powerful than the bullet". I still hold out faith, that the genius, of our Constitution will prevail, and we get rid of the current gang , through the wonder of a bloodless revolution through the ballot box.That said. Our founding Fathers didn't seek violence, they did not want to be extreme, but alas circumstances, history, and the stubbornness, of a King, to listen to His people, forced their hand.
At this point, if it is extreme, to want a return to our original values, and , ideals of Liberty,Freedom ,and Justice, Then count me extreme.
This current crowd would do well, to bone up on their history, and turn away from this headlong rush to socio-facism. And God forbid- they attempt- to make permanent- their grip on power by subverting the political process. then I to will be forced to say...
"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!

Health Care Reform: Change We Can Believe In?

Well here we go again. Once more -Our Glorious Leader- Barack Hussein OBama has said a current issue must be taken care of now, with seemingly no time for debate. Just as with the so called Stimulus, The Budget, and the Detroit bailout. This time it's Health Care.

He's calling on Congress to do something now, like in right now. I remember an old adage that said "Act in haste, repent at leisure. If only our Politicians in Washington would heed this common sense advice.

Over the past several years we have been told time and time again that "Our health care system is broken'. I'll admit there is considerable room for improvement, but , at the present time an individual will not, and cannot be refused, the urgent health care they need. Basically, if you need urgent care, it is illegal, for hospitals to refuse anyone treatment. Seems to me that's a pretty sweet deal. This is one reason medical care is so expensive. Those of us with insurance, or the money to pay, are subsidising, already, those without the means to pay their bills. Actually American health care appears to be very good.

Case in point. The National Center For Policy Analysis Say's..." Americans have better survival rates than Europeans for common cancers". What's more they say "Americans have better access to treatment for chronic diseases than patients in other developed countries." In fact they report that " "Americans are more satisfied with the health care they receive than Canadians. So much for a broken system.

Consider these facts: Out of the top ten most recent medical developments ,that have revolutionized medicine, seven were developed in the United States and one category ,hip and, knee replacements, were developed jointly-no pun intended- between the United States, United Kingdom, and Japan.

The President, as well as, his fellow Democrats in Congress, wants to foist upon the American People the same kind of medical system that is seen in Canada, Britain, as well as Europe. Why would we want to emulate these countries where patients often wait, as long as a year, to have surgeries, we take for common, such as knee or hip replacement surgery. I have even heard stories of people needing emergency treatment for things such as, blood clots and appendicitis , being misdiagnosed, given pain pills, and sent home where they later died. We don't need health care reform of this sort. We were promised-during the election- "Change we can believe in" In my opinion- this is change we can live without.

The Midwest Fair Tax Rally Columbia Missouri

"The Moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God and that there is not a force of law...to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. Property must be secure or liberty can not exist."

John Adams.

Today, this writer, went to the Midwest Tax Rally in Columbia Missouri. It was a great time. I met people from all over. People from Oklahoma, Arizona, Georgia. There were plenty of Missourians there to. Some highlights from the rally were listening to Joe the Plumber and Neil Boortz. But I have to give a special shout out to Kevin Jackson author of the blog theblacksphere.blogspot.com

This was, as this writer has said, a "Fair Tax Rally." What is the "Fair Tax"? "The Fair tax is a nonpartisan proposal that replaces all federal income taxes with a progressive tax on the consumption of new goods and services." As described in the pamphlet "The Missouri Fair Tax Welcomes You."

There motto being Show Me: Simplicity, Transparency,and Fairness."

I cannot put into words how excited I am at this growing "Revolution." Americans who still believe in freedom, democracy, and the Constitution, must get acquainted with this movement.

Their aims are to stop taxation of saving and investment.

To give every worker a "full paycheck." In other words you would no longer have gross and net pay, but rather, just income. All workers could take home EVERYTHING THEY MAKE, excuse me for shouting ,but this is something, to shout about.

It aims to give retirees, and those with fixed incomes, more disposable income.

It stops the export of American jobs overseas. Because under the Fair Tax corporations won't be taxed into oblivion, and won't need, to go overseas just to make a profit!

Bottom line here is the Fair Tax: eliminates "All Federal Income Taxes, All Payroll Taxes, All Death and Gift Taxes, as well as the I.R.S.!!! It makes our tax system voluntary, and eliminates a score of hidden taxes, and compliance costs, that are currently contained in our tax code.

I urge anyone and everyone who reads this blog to go to mofairtax.org, or, fairtax.org and get informed about the Fair Tax. You'll be glad you did.

The First Fair Tax Rally West of The Mississipi, to Hit Columbia Missouri, June 13, 2009

"COLUMBIA — The idea of adopting a statewide consumption tax in lieu of traditional corporate and individual income taxes is not novel. Fifteen years ago, three Houston businessmen invested $20 million to study alternatives to income tax nationwide. The idea has since gained a cult following...."
Columbia Missourian 5-19-09
Tired of having the government raid your paycheck, each and every week, and taking nearly half of what you earn? then the Fair Tax is for you! The Fair Tax is, simply put, a consumption tax. It wipes out all income taxes, corporate taxes,taxes on savings, as well as ,taxes on capitol gains, and replaces it with one simple form of taxation,one that is fair, across the board, and progressive as well. The more you spend, the more you pay. But perhaps the greatest benefit of all ,is that, it gets the heavy hand of government out of your life, and returns control of your money back to you. In other words the greatest benefit, is ,increased freedom for every one.

Lets face it, any fool could see, that the current system is broken. No one ,probably not even the I.R.S., knows what the untold volumes of the tax code contains. It is a -more than sixty year old- hodgepodge of rules and regulations. It is an intrusion by the government in to the lives, and business, of Americans, that would shock The Founding Fathers. Their philosophy was that less government was better government, and when they wrote the Constitution, they didn't put an income tax in it. If they had thought that a direct tax on personal, and business income, was a good idea they would have done so.

It is past time to get the Taxman off the backs of working men and women. Why should they have to choose between buying groceries and paying the utilities, or buying insurance. With the fair tax in place there would be plenty of money to do more and then some. I myself am fortunate to have good insurance where I work, plus I have an F.S.A. The Fair Tax would go a long way in helping to solve the Health Care Crisis.

It's past time to get the tax man off corporations. The Fair Tax would make American Companies extremely competitive in the world market, and I believe, lead companies from all over the world to come here and build factories, etc. With the extra money corporations would have, they would be better able to, raise wages and increase capacity, which means more jobs, and, provide insurance to their employees.

People would be able to save money without the government taxing their savings. Investors would be able to keep ALL their capital gains, which means, more investment in America. It doesn't take a Fulbright scholar- and lord knows I'm not one- to see that this is a win win for every citizen, as well as ,our Nation.

But the thing I like the best is it gets the government gun out of our faces by eliminating the I.R.S. For much to long our government has used the power of the state, and the threat of criminal punishment, to extort money from it's own Citizens.

Take a moment today and visit

today. God Bless America And may god Bless this movement with success

North Korea would use nuclear weapons in a 'merciless offensive'

Yes once again the dictator that everyone loves to hate has threatened the entire world.
According to the official Korean Central News Agency,

"Our nuclear deterrent will be a strong defensive means...as well as a merciless offensive means to deal a just retaliatory strike to those who touch the country's dignity and sovereignty even a bit,".
This is quite a bold ,as well as, provocative statement. In the past the North Koreans have insisted that any nuclear weapons they might possess are for strictly defensive purposes. Now however they are also bragging that they will be used as offensive weapons ,if any nation, dare "Touch" their dignity as a nation."
What does that mean? If anyone dare criticize Korea, or it's hopelessly insane leader, Kim Ill Jung, are they going to be subject to Nuclear attack?
What is the purpose of the recent bellicosity of North Korea? Do they want a war with the United States, Japan, South Korea, as well as any other country that would see fit to join us?
At first I thought, maybe, they do. But I believe their may be more to it. I'm not discounting ,that for some reason, they might want to fight us, but there may well be other factors that motivate them.
One such factor may be that they are actually advertising the fact that they now have some form of nuclear weapon and the means to deliver it over a distance desirable to groups such as Al-Kaeda or whatever, Hamas, or any other lunatic group that wishes the rest of the world harm. This writer suspects this may be a very important objective of their current campaign of idiocy.
There is however another possibility. It may just be that they have serious, and I mean serious, designs on South Korea. Consider this quote from The Korean Central News Agency.

Dateline June 8 2009 : "Pyongyang, June 8 (KCNA) -- The elimination of anti-reunification traitors is an urgent task before the Korean nation desirous of its reunification, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed article."

And what or whom are these so called anti- reunification traitors? No less a light than the President of South Korea, as well as , his entire administration. Why does this writer think this to be the Case? I'll let the North Korean lunatics speak for themselves.
"It is the Lee "government" veiled with the signboard of "pragmatism" that brought to naught overnight the successes made in the development of the inter-Korean relations which the Korean nation has achieved through concerted efforts in the June 15 era of reunification and revived the past fascist dictatorial policy in the south Korean political circle. It is due to the Lee regime that the confrontation between the north and the south has reached such an extreme phase that a war may break out any moment in Korea."

North Korea is in dire straits. Our country may be bankrupt, but his country really takes the cake. They have people flooding across the border with China the way we have people coming over from Mexico. The people aren't just poor, they're starving, freezing, and God knows what else. Meanwhile these nuts in Pyong Yang live like gods. Any way I digress.

North Korea has in essence, as well as in fact, made a death threat against the entire government of South Korea.
Bottom line. They want to make an incursion into South Korea, seize as much South Korean wealth and land as possible. They have looked at our current President, and judged him, to be weak. They have looked at our majority party and figure they will have no gut for war, and have come to the conclusion that, if they provoke a war with us,and South Korea,that they can quickly make significant inroads into the South, then , at the right moment, or perhaps when we are about to turn them back, make an appeal for negotiations, and bank on the fact, that no matter how outrageous their actions, we would stop operation, enter into negotiations, and quite likely allow this bunch of mutts to keep what they gained i.e. Israel and the Arab states during the Six day war.

Well I've gone a little long, but there is no doubt about it, Kim Ill and his band of sickos aren't going away, unless the world gets some guts and take this bunch of clowns down.

Barack Hussein Obama:Our Glorious Leader

Our Glorious Leader

"Be Mindful of God"
Well once again our glorious leader,Barack Obama, has globe trotted around the world, apologizing for our past actions, apologising for this Nations support for Democracy, as well as trying to woo moderate-if there really are any- Muslims ,as well as, trying to appease the Muslims, who are truly terrorists. Especially of note was his widely reported quote "As the Holy Quran tells us, 'Be conscious of God and speak always the truth."

Turns out this verse has actually been quoted by extreme Muslim clerics to justify Jihad against-"The Infidels"-in other words-us. According to
http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=100504 Obama was reading from chapter 9 verse 119 of the Quran, which deals with the theme of not abandoning Muhammad. His is not a verse that calls upon Muslims to be tolerant of others, but rather, actually encourages violence, because all Muslims are instructed by the Koran to heed the words of the so called prophet.This means that if they are to support, and follow Mohammad, they must wage Jihad against the infidel-i.e. anyone who disagrees with their ideas about God, or as they call him ,Allah,. The next Quranic passage continues: "Neither the dwellers of the city, nor the Arabs around them, shall seek to stay behind the messenger of Allah (when he mobilizes for war). Nor shall they give priority to their own affairs over supporting him. This is because they do not suffer any thirst, or any effort, or hunger in the cause of Allah, or take a single step that enrages the disbelievers, or inflict any hardship upon the enemy, without having it written down for them as a credit. Allah never fails to recompense those who work righteousness."

Enraging disbelievers, as well as ,inflicting hardship upon them, is actively encouraged.
Well Obama either stepped in it big time on this one, or -could it be- he was showing solidarity with them. I choose to think that some of his handlers were familiar with the "Be Mindful of God" part, but either were ignorant, or chose to ignore, the rest of this passage in it's context. Or it could be that he was actually trying-in some way- to appease our enemies.

At the very least the President would do better to instruct those in the "
Muslim" world to "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"
Jesus Christ,First Century A.D.
P.S That was well before Muhammad was born.

Finally Health Care Reform We Can Believe In


Finally Health care reform we can believe in!
Michell Bachmann Congresswoman from Minnesota introduced legislation back in January that would make obtaining health insurance for individuals not covered by employers much easier.

For several years now a debate over health care has raged in Washington, as well as ,around the nation. We all can remember "Hillary care" and the controversy surrounding it. Basically it was Clinton's proposal to socialize medicine. Thank God, once this boondoggle was exposed, and the public became outraged,this attempt at socializing medicine went down in flames.

Fast forward to today, under the guise of universal health care, Barack Obama, and his minions in congress, are attempting to resurrect this stinking carcass. Make no mistake, what the President and the Democrats in Congress, are proposing , is nothing less than the same kind of socialistic medicine we see in countries such as France, England,and Canada, to name But a few. Our President would have us join the ranks of the people of these nations waiting in line for care and treatment that most Americans take for granted.

Enter H.R. Bill # 502, introduced in January of this year, would make it possible for uninsured workers to obtain health insurance on their own, provide freedom of choice in health care, and stimulate competition in the health care industry thereby reducing cost for all consumers. It would make it possible for all workers to take control of their own health care destinies, and in time may be able to allow workers to find the insurance that is right ,as well as best, for them, and not whats best for their employers.
I have linked this page to the bill, take time to view it, and I think you will agree , this truly is health care reform we can all believe in!

New Statue of Ronald Reagan Unveiled in U.S. Capitol

Yesterday A new statue to one of this nations greatest Presidents was unveiled in Washington D.C. What a tribute to an absolutely great man. The news reports said that the creator of the statue even put debris from the Berlin Wall at the base of the statue. How fitting,as Reagan once called for "Mikail Gorbachev to "Tear Down This Wall".

Ronald Wilson Reagan was a man who absolutely loved this nation. He was a Patriot, Statesman, and Leader. At a time when others thought America's best day's were behind her-he echoed the sentiments of Ben Franklin - when he said "The Sun is coming up on America."

The heart of Reagan's politics was a firm belief that individuals could best shape their own destiny - and they could do it best- with as little interference from Government as possible. He was a strong believer in the power of the human spirit to innovate, create, and produce.

Above all else Ronald Reagan was a Patriot. He had an unwavering faith in the beliefs, ideals, and principles, on which this Nation was founded. That all men were of equal value in the eyes of our creator. That every man had a God given right to freedom. And that given free reign there was nothing that free men could not accomplish.

He never apologized for America's actions. Instead -as Cheerleader in Chief- he extolled the virtues of America, and pointed out how , over the course of our history, we had consistently spent large amounts of treasure, as well as blood, to bring freedom to all the peoples of the Earth. What a contrast to our current President , who constantly seems to apologise for you and for me, and, even apologises to the world for our support of democracy.

Yes Ronald Wilson Reagan was a man who believed in the power of the individual, the rightness of Democracy, and the purely American Ideal of a limited government democratically elected by the people.

Ronald Reagan we need you now!

Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor: A question of integrity?

"Because judicial power is limited by Article III of the Constitution, judges should seek only to resolve the specific grievance, ripe for resolution, of the parties before the court and within the law as written and interpreted in precedents," she said. "Intrusion by a judge upon the functions of the other branches of government should only be done as a last resort and limitedly."

During her first confirmation hearing before Congress in 1991 Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, gave this interesting answer to Republican concerns that she would be an "activist" judge. At that time it appears that Ms. Sotomayor said, what she knew, her questioners on the right, wanted to hear, that if nominated, she would follow the Constitution.

Later During a during a visit to the Duke university School of Law, Ms. Sotomayor made the following comment.

"The U.S. Court of Appeals “makes policy” http://www.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2009/06/01/sonia-sotomayor-and-making-policy/

Is it just me, or is there a glaring discrepancy, between these two statements? On the one hand, when before Congress, she attempted to reassure conservatives, that she was not an "activist" judge. On the other hand, when she thought, no one would find out, she revealed her true feelings about 'Judicial" activism.

Apparently ,she is comfortable, not only usurping the power of the legislative branch, which makes law, but also the executive branch, which formulates policy. It seems to me she has a problem of integrity.

The definition of integrity is," consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations and outcome. According to this definition, she definitely, misses the mark.

Do we really want a Supreme Court Justice -that say's what is politically expedient - not to mention - may be led more by emotion than by law - or one that say's what she really believes. If there is one place integrity is of paramount importance, I would think, it would be in any judicial nominee, not to mention a Supreme Court Nominee.

My hope is that the Republicans will have the guts to challenge her on this point and, perhaps just perhaps , derail this nominee before she makes it to the highest court in the land.
