DICK MORRIS – which side is he really on?

November 10, 2008

Dick Morris is often on FOX, providing a ‘conservative’ view of this campaign.  But, did you know that less than 2 years ago Morris was in Kenya – at a press conference with Ralia Odinga, where he told Kenyans that he was going to manage Odinga’s campaign, pro bono?  Or that Obama donated a chunk of money to Odinga’s campaign, along with the pro bono value of Morris’ work?  (see link to campaign accounting below)

 

Odinga, the thug in Kenya who called for riots if he lost; and who has an agreement with Muslims to make Sharia law the law of Kenya?  This seems to make Dick Morris highly suspect in all he says and does.  And I might add (if you view the videos) you will see a remarkable similarity in the Odinga rhetoric and call for “change” to that of his cousin, Obama (who was over there about the same time as Morris).

(note the list of donors to Odinga – “Friends of Senator BO” – according to a person in Kenya, that donation equals $1 million US and was from both Dick Morris and Barack Obama !!!!  And Dick Morris donated his time to organize and run the Odinga campaign!!!!

America’s Future

November 4, 2008

 

GOD SAVE AMERICA

the

REPUBLIC

 

It is now election day – and many of us hold anxiety that is palpable!  We worry that too many people have not really looked at Obama; too many have never bothered to do any research on the guy.  Too many have closed their minds, believing that ‘change’ in and of itself is all that is required and that Obama will deliver a change that suits us. 

 

Too few people ‘get’ what is going on with Obama.  Far too few understand that the change we have coming is not the change we wanted or were told about.  And far too few realize that the real Obama is vastly different than the man behind the facade, and of those people, that have no clue what lurks behind. 

 

Sadly most people who have or will vote for Obama never bothered to do their homework, never took the time to investigate who the real Obama is and what his agenda is about.  They do not know they are being duped.

 

What we have in this global community now is like a tipsy domino chain.  So fragile, that if a domino is moved slightly others flutter, others topple, and a chain reaction begins. 

The chain is part economics, part ideology, part security, part internal stability, part diplomacy.  Mess with any of the parts, and all are affected.

 

Obama’s plan – and if any who may read this have not bothered to do any investigation, I urge you to Google and read two things – just two – one is about the “New Party” and the other is the Cloward-Piven Strategy.  Obama was a member of the New Party (some believe he still is, but most who have studied his background believe that the philosophy of the New Party remains at the core of Obama’s beliefs today).  And Cloward-Piven has served as the foundation of most ‘progressive’, radical, and/or socialist organizations, of which many are a part of Obama’s alliances (both individuals and organizations).  If you read a bit about those two topics you will have some insight into the real Obama.

 

Those 2 matters are the bottom line.  Much has been written about his alliances, much has been divulged about his actions over the years, much has been speculated about all the unanswered questions (some of which have been answered through research), and much has been said about the many audio and video clips of his own words. 

 

If you have not bothered to assess any of that it is too late to educate you now.  But it won’t take long to look up and read about the 2 factors above.  You owe that much to yourself, to your family, your city/state/country.  It is the very least you should do and in reality you should have done a good deal of inquiry about a man with virtually nothing known about him (still). 

 

Today, after 2 years of observation and investigation, dozens of experts in areas of economics, energy, finance, stock market, body language, security, military, personality characteristics, media, politics, international relations have analyzed Barack Obama.  These people have no vested interest in the individual, merely the reflection of policy and impact, personality and impact, strategy and impact.  He has garnered enormous concern from most all such experts.  He’s regarded as a man who poses great danger for this country on so many levels.

 

Again, you should have done your research and I’m not going to attempt to inform, as I have done that for many weeks.

 

History has a way of telling us what is to come based on what has been.  It applies to all nature of aspects of any civilization, country, leader, form of government.  There are huge lessons to be learned from other countries and other times, lessons that many have forgotten or never even heard about (such as Vietnam).  One lesson we need to keep at the forefront of our minds – terrorism.  Over the last several years, as each country in the West has elected a new leader, they have been struck with deadly force by terrorists — anywhere from the day before the election to 3-4 days after.

 

We know (because they have told us time and again, continually) that the terrorists (of every stripe) and their supporters (Saudis, Iranians, Hamas, Palestinians, Kenyans, etc) that their main target is the US, for which they have their biggest plans. 

 

Can we really afford on the job training during the ‘crisis’ that Biden promised, and various military and security types indicate is likely?  Good God NO. 

 

This country was created by wise men with vision.  They addressed a number of matters that they anticipated.  They were dealing with Islamic attack even back then!  They knew that a Democracy would not survive.  They created instead a Republic, and indicated that it was a gift that would last as long as we could keep it. 

 

Well, our time is nearing the end.  We are in the transition from Republic to Democracy (massive government intervention  over the people) and about to become an Oligarchy – and that is where all bets are off, all of what we know as America dissolves.  That is when total control over the people is mounted by a ‘few’ elites.  Those folks have been forming a line – behind Obama – and within 4 years their job will be done – the cake baked – and everything you knew, believed in, trusted — all gone.  I believe that to the core – without any shadow of a doubt.  So much do I believe it I’d bet my life on it.  

 

YOUR CHOICE IS CLEAR – NOT FOR OR AGAINST CHANGE (IT WILL HAPPEN NO MATTER WHO IS IN OFFICE) – BUT FOR PRESERVATION OF OUR REPUBLIC AND FREEDOMS, OR ABDICATING OUR FUTURE AND FREEDOMS TO THE SOON TO EMERGE OLIGARCHY.

 

The word oligarchy is from the Greek words for “few” (ὀλίγios olígios) and “rule” (ἄρχeiv arkhein). Such states are often controlled by politically powerful families whose children were heavily conditioned and mentored to be heirs of the power of the oligarchy. This type of power by its very nature may not be exercised openly; the oligarchs preferring to remain “the power behind the throne“, exerting control through economic means. Oligarchies have been tyrannical throughout history, being completely reliant on public servitude to exist.

 

 

The View from the UK on our Election

October 31, 2008

Sometimes a foreigner sees us more accurately than we see ourselves.

From the British author Melanie Phillips, writing in The Spectator (UK):

“You have to pinch yourself—a Marxist radical who all his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of, worshiped with, befriended, endorsed the philosophy of, funded and been in turn funded, politically promoted and supported a nexus comprising black power anti-white racists, Jew haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists, and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of becoming President of the United States. And apparently, it’s considered impolite to say so.”

Indeed.

Five days left.

Follow the Bouncing Tax Ball – Obama Style

October 30, 2008

During 2008 Obama has pressed lowering taxes and sharing the wealth.  What has happened however, is that the income to not get an increase has gone from $1 million (in the Spring) down to $500,000, then down to $250,000, then $200,000 and then $150,000.

I see a trend here.  And worse, what Obama is NOT saying is that there will be other taxes – oh so many.  Forget the death taxes, the capital gains taxes and let’s just look at the taxes piled atop an increased income tax.  The income tax will go to about 40% (for what income level we can’t be sure since it keeps dipping downward) – but on top of that will be increases in social security tax and medicare tax, taking those of you at some rate about $150,000 (or lower) up to nearly 50% !!  That is ONE HALF OF EVERY DOLLAR MADE GOES TO THE GOVERNMENT to be used to pay for welfare programs and entitlements for those who don’t work.  Now I realize some of those on welfare really need it due to disability, illness etc.  No one begrudges them assistance.  But what about the billions of people who have been on the dole for decades and see no need to work? 

The loss of half of one’s income will make a huge difference in one’s ability to support their family, possible only with a major change in lifestyle.  And keep in mind that this near 50% is FEDERAL taxation and does not include sales tax, state taxes, property taxes etc.  Some people could find themselves at well over 60% taken out of their paychecks. 

If one lives in most of the East, $250,000 is hardly wealthy due to the cost of living (i.e. $4000 a month rent for a tiny apartment in Manhattan or Boston, or in the West in San Francisco or Los Angeles).  It might be a comfortable income in Iowa or Nebraska, or Mississippi, but still, 60% taxation?  Outrageous!!

With all that however, economic experts have run the numbers and have determined that it is virtually impossible to give 40% of the population (those who pay no taxes) a $500-1000 a year check, pay for all the added welfare and social programs Obama indicates he will deliver) on the backs of those uber-rich and the upper middle class. 

What does that mean?  It means that most everyone is going to see tax increases – it is a Fact of Life in an Obama world.  How many entrepreneurs are going to expand business, hire new employees and increase sales under such enormous tax penalty??  NEXT TO NONE

The choise is clear on so many levels – security, cleaning up waste in government, taxation, our economy and its growth, honesty, and an open and transparent government dedicated to Free Speech and total accountability    VERSUS  an administration of secrecy, limited powers under control of a handful of people, restrictions on free speech, increased taxes, declining productivity, increased unemployment, and serious risk and exposure to foreign attack (economic, terrorism and ideological). 

AL MONSOUR – Who is This Mentor and Friend of Obama’s???

October 30, 2008

Dr. Khalid Al-Mansour, Senior Advisor, HRH Prince Al-Waleed Bin TalalDr. Al-Mansour is an international attorney and businessman and is renowned as an intellectual, activist, author, and teacher. He co-founded the law firm of Al-Waleed, Al-Talal, and Al-Mansour and has served as a director of the Saudi African Bank and the United Bank of Africa among others.  He travels the world giving speeches against America and in support of Islam.  He and Al-Waleed have their fingers in many US businesses and real estate, from which they have made a huge sum of money. 

Al Monsour detests Jews, Christians and Whites with a passion! 

Bin-Talal has donated millions of dollars to various American universities to sponsor and expand on Islamic studies.  It is Khalidi that is now at Columbia U in charge of Islamic and Middle East studies, where he has created a platform to promote anti-Semitism.  It is, according Percy Sutton (civil rights activist, millionaire) gave an interview in which he said that years ago Al Monsour asked him to help get Obama into Harvard, and that Obama was receiving financial backing from bin-Talal. 

So, the trail goes thus:  Obama met Al Monsour in Chicago before going to Harvard.  Al Monsour was friends with Khalidi, and Percy Sutton.  He was also friends with Ayres, whom Obama knew.  Al Monsour introduced Obama to Khalidi and the Prince Al-Talal and the group remains allied, and includes more people, like George Soros, who also hates Jews and Israel. 

The common thread between these men is pro Islamic philosophies, anti-Semitic attitudes, and support for Palestine.  There is great power and money within this group, ready and waiting.

ISLAMIZATION OF EUROPE HEADED TO THE US – Israel at Risk

October 30, 2008

 

America as the last man standing  

‘In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe?’

Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem (which I hope to be attending).

The speech was sponsored by the Hudson Institute on September 25.

Dear friends,

Thank you very much for inviting me. Great to be at the Four Seasons. I come from a country that has one season only: a rainy season that starts January 1st and ends December 31st. When we have three sunny days in a row, the government declares a national emergency. So Four Seasons, that’s new to me.

It’s great to be in New York. When I see the skyscrapers and office buildings, I think of what Ayn Rand said: ‘The sky over New York and the will of man made visible.’ Of course. Without the Dutch you would have been nowhere, still figuring out how to buy this island from the Indians. But we are glad we did it for you.. And, frankly, you did a far better job than we possibly could have done.

I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The danger I see looming is the scenario of America as the last man standing. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe. In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe? Patriots from around Europe risk their lives every day to prevent precisely this scenario form becoming a reality.

My short lecture consists of 4 parts.

First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe. Then, I will say a few things about Islam. Thirdly, if you are still here, I will talk a little bit about the movie you just saw. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem.

The Europe you know is changing. You have probably seen the landmarks. The Eiffel Tower and Trafalgar Square and Rome’s ancient buildings and maybe the canals of Amsterdam. They are still there. And they still look very much the same as they did a hundred years ago.

But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world, a world very few visitors see – and one that does not appear in your tourist guidebook. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration. All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighbourhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighbourhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighbourhood by neighbourhood, city by city.

There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe. With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.

Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseille and Malmo in Sweden. In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighbourhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities. In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims. Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore, whore’. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin. In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can in many cases no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity. In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighbourhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels, because he was drinking during the Ramadan. Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya, Israel. I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.

A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favour of a worldwide caliphate. A Dutch study reported that half of Dutch Muslims admit they ‘understand’ the 9/11 attacks.

Muslims demand what they call ‘respect’. And this is how we give them respect. Our elites are willing to give in. To give up. In my own country we have gone from calls by one cabinet member to turn Muslim holidays into official state holidays, to statements by another cabinet member, that Islam is part of Dutch culture, to an affirmation by the Christian-Democratic attorney general that he is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey.

Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behaviour, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. Some prefer to see these as isolated incidents, but I call it a Muslim intifada. I call the perpetrators ‘settlers’. Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies, they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers.

Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighbourhoods, their cities, their countries.

Politicians shy away from taking a stand against this creeping sharia. They believe in the equality of all cultures. Moreover, on a mundane level, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.

Our many problems with Islam cannot be explained by poverty, repression or the European colonial past, as the Left claims. Nor does it have anything to do with Palestinians or American troops in Iraq. The problem is Islam itself.

Allow me to give you a brief Islam 101. The first thing you need to know about Islam is the importance of the book of the Quran. The Quran is Allah’s personal word, revealed by an angel to Mohammed, the prophet. This is where the trouble starts.. Every word in the Quran is Allah’s word and therefore not open to discussion or interpretation. It is valid for every Muslim and for all times. Therefore, there is no such a thing as moderate Islam. Sure, there are a lot of moderate Muslims. But a moderate Islam is non-existent.

The Quran calls for hatred, violence, submission, murder, and terrorism. The Quran calls for Muslims to kill non-Muslims, to terrorize non-Muslims and to fulfil their duty to wage war: violent jihad. Jihad is a duty for every Muslim; Islam is to rule the world – by the sword. The Quran is clearly anti-Semitic, describing Jews as monkeys and pigs.

The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behaviour is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages – at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. He advised on matters of slavery, but never advised to liberate slaves. Islam has no other morality than the advancement of Islam. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad. There is no gray area or other side.

Quran as Allah’s own word and Mohammed as the perfect man are the two most important facets of Islam. Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means ‘submission’. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

This is what you need to know about Islam, in order to understand what is going on in Europe. For millions of Muslims the Quran and the life of Mohammed are not 14 centuries old, but are an everyday reality, an ideal, that guide every aspect of their lives. Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.

Which brings me to my movie, Fitna.

I am a lawmaker, and not a movie maker. But I felt I had the moral duty to educate about Islam. The duty to make clear that the Quran stands at the heart of what some people call terrorism but is in reality jihad. I wanted to show that the problems of Islam are at the core of Islam, and do not belong to its fringes.

Now, from the day the plan for my movie was made public, it caused quite a stir, in the Netherlands and throughout Europe. First, there was a political storm, with government leaders, across the continent in sheer panic. The Netherlands was put under a heightened terror alert, because of possible attacks or a revolt by our Muslim population. The Dutch branch of the Islamic organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir declared that the Netherlands was due for an attack. Internationally, there was a series of incidents. The Taliban threatened to organize additional attacks against Dutch troops in Afghanistan, and a website linked to Al Qaeda published the message that I ought to be killed, while various muftis in the Middle East stated that I would be responsible for all the bloodshed after the screening of the movie. In Afghanistan and Pakistan the Dutch flag was burned on several occasions. Dolls representing me were also burned. The Indonesian President announced that I will never be admitted into Indonesia again, while the UN Secretary General and the European Union issued cowardly statements in the same vein as those made by the Dutch Government. I could go on and on. It was an absolute disgrace, a sell-out.

A plethora of legal troubles also followed, and have not ended yet. Currently the state of Jordan is litigating against me. Only last week there were renewed security agency reports about a heightened terror alert for the Netherlands because of Fitna.

Now, I would like to say a few things about Israel. Because, very soon, we will get together in its capitol. The best way for a politician in Europe to loose votes is to say something positive about Israel. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I, however, will continue to speak up for Israel. I see defending Israel as a matter of principle. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.

Samuel Huntington writes it so aptly: ‘Islam has bloody borders’. Israel is located precisely on that border. This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam’s territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel, they can get everything. Therefore, it is not that the West has a stake in Israel. It is Israel.

It is very difficult to be an optimist in the face of the growing Islamization of Europe. All the tides are against us. On all fronts we are losing. Demographically the momentum is with Islam. Muslim immigration is even a source of pride within ruling liberal parties. Academia, the arts, the media, trade unions, the churches, the business world, the entire political establishment have all converted to the suicidal theory of multiculturalism. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a ‘right-wing extremists’ or ‘racists’. The entire establishment has sided with our enemy. Leftists, liberals and Christian-Democrats are now all in bed with Islam.

This is the most painful thing to see: the betrayal by our elites. At this moment in Europe’s history, our elites are supposed to lead us. To stand up for centuries of civilization. To defend our heritage. To honour our eternal Judeo-Christian values that made Europe what it is today. But there are very few signs of hope to be seen at the governmental level. Sarkozy, Merkel, Brown, Berlusconi; in private, they probably know how grave the situation is. But when the little red light goes on, they stare into the camera and tell us that Islam is a religion of peace, and we should all try to get along nicely and sing Kumbaya. They willingly participate in, what President Reagan so aptly called: ‘the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom.’

If there is hope in Europe, it comes from the people, not from the elites. Change can only come from a grass-roots level. It has to come from the citizens themselves. Yet these patriots will have to take on the entire political, legal and media establishment.

Over the past years there have been some small, but encouraging, signs of a rebirth of the original European spirit. Maybe the elites turn their backs on freedom, the public does not. In my country, the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat to our national identity. I don’t think the public opinion in Holland is very different from other European countries.

Patriotic parties that oppose jihad are growing, against all odds. My own party debuted two years ago, with five percent of the vote. Now it stands at ten percent in the polls. The same is true of all smililary-minded parties in Europe. They are fighting the liberal establishment, and are gaining footholds on the political arena, one voter at the time.

Now, for the first time, these patriotic parties will come together and exchange experiences. It may be the start of something big. Something that might change the map of Europe for decades to come. It might also be Europe’s last chance.

This December a conference will take place in Jerusalem. Thanks to Professor Aryeh Eldad, a member of Knesset, we will be able to watch Fitna in the Knesset building and discuss the jihad. We are organizing this event in Israel to emphasize the fact that we are all in the same boat together, and that Israel is part of our common heritage. Those attending will be a select audience. No racist organizations will be allowed. And we will only admit parties that are solidly democratic.

This conference will be the start of an Alliance of European patriots. This Alliance will serve as the backbone for all organizations and political parties that oppose jihad and Islamization. For this Alliance I seek your support.

This endeavor may be crucial to America and to the West. America may hold fast to the dream that, thanks to its location, it is safe from jihad and sharia. But seven years ago to the day, there was still smoke rising from ground zero, following the attacks that forever shattered that dream. Yet there is a danger even greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America – as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem.

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe’s children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so.

This is not the first time our civilization is under threat. We have seen dangers before. We have been betrayed by our elites before. They have sided with our enemies before.. And yet, then, freedom prevailed.

These are not times in which to take lessons from appeasement, capitulation, giving away, giving up or giving in. These are not times in which to draw lessons from Mr. Chamberlain. These are times calling us to draw lessons from Mr. Churchill and the words he spoke in 1942:

‘Never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy’.

  a quote from Senator Obama’s book:

 

“I will stand with the Muslims

should the political winds shift in an

 ugly direction

 

This is a pretty straightforward statement. It seems to me to leave little doubt as to his sympathies. In addition to this, there is an incredible body of evidence as to Senator Obama’s connection with,, involvement in, and personal relationships with the Muslim world.

 

With that in mind, please read the speech below.  It is my belief that Muslim extremism is a grave threat to the future of our nation. If after reading this you disagree, please tell me what I am missing, and why am Obama presidency is nothing to be worried about. By the way, there are about 200 other reasons why we should be worried about Barack Obama as President and Commander-in-Chief.

BROWN AND BLACK – IMAGES OF DAYS GONE BY OR UPCOMING?

October 30, 2008
 

A speech given months ago (link sent earlier) shows Obama saying that he will immediately create a national ‘security force’ with as much strength and power as the military.

Here is the link to the speech mentioned just over 1/2 way through – about a National Security Force
Here is the full speech on July 2, 2008 in Colorado Springs, Colorado

And that would be for what? WHY do you need a costly armed security force in this country when we have city police, county sheriffs, FBI, fire department and state police? WHY? I leave you to your own conclusions.

BUT may I bring up another instance when a similar force was called for, and what happened then? Harkin back to your personal knowledge of, or from the history books (or just Google) the time when the infamous Brown Shirts and Black Shirts were created. And what happened then?

The potential for comparison is frankly frightening!

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TODAY – ALL AMERICANS MUST MUST MUST KNOW WHO THIS MAN IS AND WHERE HE WILL TAKE US. SEND EMAILS NOW PLEASE !!!!!

Did Saddam bagman help Obama buy mansion?

Rezko financier linked with late Iraqi tyrant

Former Baathist official Nadhmi Auchi with cousin Saddam Hussein Just 23 days before a crooked fundraiser helped Sen. Barack Obama buy his Chicago mansion, a billionaire bagman for Saddam Hussein wired millions into the crook’s account.

“Barack Obama appears to have personally benefited from funds originating in Saddam Hussein’s regime,” said Mideast expert Daniel Pipes.

Former Iraqi official Nadhmi Auchi bankrolled his longtime friend and business partner, Syrian immigrant and Chicago slumlord Tony Rezko, who in turn bankrolled Obama’s political career before being convicted this year of fraud.

That much is known. What’s not known is whether any Auchi funds aided Obama’s 2005 purchase of a $1.65 million mock-Georgian mansion in the leafy Kenwood district of Chicago. On the same day, Rezko purchased an adjacent lot from the same seller.

In addition, Rezko personally toured the house with Obama before their same-day purchase of the adjoining parcels. He also advised Obama on negotiating his end of the deal.

Obama ended up buying his side of the property for $300,000 below the asking price, while Rezko, through his wife, paid full price, $625,000, for the adjacent vacant lot.

Just three weeks earlier, Rezko – who at the time was under indictment and virtually bankrupt – received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Auchi, his “close friend” and partner, who smuggled weapons to Saddam’s regime.

Illinois State Senate President Emil Jones Jr. and his protege Barack Obama
A year before their real estate deal, Obama, fresh off his U.S. Senate win, attended a dinner that Rezko hosted honoring Auchi at the Four Seasons hotel in downtown Chicago. There, he met with Rezko, as well as his career mentor, Emil Jones, president of the Illinois senate, where Obama had previously served. Jones also is close to Auchi.

While Obama acknowledges attending the 2004 event, he claims having no memory of meeting Auchi there.

“I just don’t recall,” he said, even though the dinner was held in Auchi’s honor and Rezko had invited Obama to meet him and other friends.

What’s more, Rezko that same year had held another reception for Auchi, this time at his mansion; and according to court testimony in Rezko’s trial, both Barack and Michelle Obama attended the reception and met Auchi.

Auchi at the time was under investigation by the U.S. government. The Pentagon had accused him of perpetrating fraud in Iraq, and he was subsequently barred from future entry into the U.S.

Auchi turned to Rezko to lobby several politicians in an unsuccessful bid to reinstate his visa.

It’s not clear if Obama, a vocal Iraq war critic, was one of those politicians. But the senator did intervene on behalf of another shady Iraqi official at Rezko’s request.

Emil Jones and Nadhmi Auchi
After Aiham Alsammarae was jailed in Iraq for fraud in 2006, Obama’s Senate office sought information from the State Department about his status and relayed it to his family living in Chicago.

Alsammarae, a dual Iraqi-U.S. citizen who donated the maximum $2,300 to Obama’s campaign, attended the same Four Seasons reception for Auchi attended by Obama.

A 2004 Pentagon report identified Auchi as an Iraqi billionaire and global arms dealer “who behind the facade of legitimate business, served as Saddam Hussein’s principle international financial manipulator and bag man.”

The report states that “significant and credible evidence has been developed that Nadhmi Auchi has engaged in unlawful activities,” such as bribing “foreign governments and individuals prior to Operation Iraqi Freedom to turn opinion against the American-led mission to remove Saddam Hussein.”

Obama and top fundraiser Tony Rezko, a business partner and close friend of Auchi
He also helped “arrange for significant theft from the U.N. Oil-for-Food Program to smuggle weapons and dual-use technology into Iraq.”

Since October 2002, Obama has publicly opposed Operation Iraqi Freedom, which ousted Saddam Hussein. Auchi was a cousin of the executed dictator.

As for Rezko, the Obama campaign says the presidential hopeful was unaware of his dirty dealings and has returned more than $200,000 in donations tied to him.

Obama has confessed misjudgment only in the subsequent purchase of a 10-foot strip of the adjacent S. Greenwood Avenue property from Rezko, not the original seemingly coordinated purchase of the parcels with Rezko on the same day, which political watchdog groups have called a “sweetheart deal.”

Obama described his subsequent $105,000 transaction a “boneheaded move,” only because Rezko was under indictment at the time for bribing elected officials and other influence-peddling charges. He denies they coordinated their bids on the adjoining parcels so the Obamas could buy their dream home at a discount.

And his campaign has reiterated that Obama has no recollection of meeting Iraqi bagman Auchi, while adding that Auchi does not recall meeting Obama.

“There are no skeletons with this guy,” Obama foreign policy adviser Samantha Power has insisted regarding her candidate. “He’s clean.”

Coincidentally, Obama’s national campaign co-chairman, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. of Chicago, also purchased a mansion under similarly mysterious circumstances.

Obama tied to Iraqi government fraud?

ELECTION 2008

Hundreds of millions in deals with candidate’s associates

Antoin “Tony” Rezko
JERUSALEM – Sen. Barack Obama’s office engaged in six months of negotiations with a company controlled by convicted criminal Tony Rezko to lobby the U.S. government to push through a nixed $50 million contact to train Iraqi security personnel at a site in Chicago.

The contract was awarded to Rezko’s company while Aiham Alsammarae, a long-time, close Rezko friend and a contributor to Obama’s campaign, served as Iraq’s U.S.-appointed electricity minister, the senator’s office confirms.

Rezko was a major Obama fundraiser and associate for two decades.

Alsammarae also awarded another Rezko-controlled operation as part of a $150 million contract to construct a 250-megawatt electricity plant in Iraq.

Alsammarae later was arrested by Iraqi authorities for bilking the coalition government out of some $650 million. He was sprung from prison under questionable circumstances in 2006 and escaped from Iraq, where he is still wanted for questioning with regard to major financial crimes.

The information raises questions into the nature of Obama’s relationship with multiple deals made by Iraq’s Electricity Ministry while Alsammarae was in charge. Obama has ties to Alsammarae and to the recipients of several of the massive contracts Alsammarae handed out.

(Story continues below)

While he was the electric czar of Iraq for the Coalition Provisional Authority from mid-2003 until mid-2005, Alsammarae granted the $50 million contract to train Iraqis to guard electrical plants to Companion Security, a start-up reportedly controlled by Rezko, his partner Daniel Mahru and a front man, Daniel Frawley, a former Chicago policeman. Frawley has multiple civil court judgments against him for his alleged failure to pay millions in outstanding bills.

The plan was to fly about 150 Iraqis to a site in Illinois for security training, which reportedly would include the use of AK-47 assault rifles.

Obama’s office did not reply to repeated WND requests for comment. A working number could not be found for Frawley.

Alsammarae did not return WND calls left on his cell phone and at his voicemail at his KCI Consultants firm in Chicago.

The contract with Rezko’s group was signed April 18, 2005, one month before Alsammarae left his governmental post.

But Iraq’s new electricity minister aborted the deal, complaining the Companion contract was too expensive, according to a U.S. embassy official in Baghdad who spoke earlier this year to the Chicago Sun-Times.

In the spring of 2006, Frawley and his company reportedly reached out to Chicago politicians, including Obama and Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, to bring pressure to revive the deal, arguing the business would be good for the state.

Blagojevich’s office and Illinois Homeland Security reportedly helped by offering an Army depot in Savanna in western Illinois as a site for Companion to conduct the Iraqi training.

Frawley then reportedly reached out to Obama, who in 2006 was a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, engaging in six months of dialogue petitioning the Illinois senator to write a letter introducing the Rezko-connected Companion company to senior Iraqi officials. Frawley met with Seamus Ahern, who runs Obama’s Moline, Ill., office.

But Obama, who has denied doing political favors for Rezko, later claimed he did not known Rezko was involved with Companion.

Obama’s office declined to help about the same time Rezko was indicted on charges of fraud.

Obama’s spokesman Ben LaBolt said, “The Senate staff had two meetings, one conference call and sporadically e-mailed with representatives of Companion Security about their request for Sen. Obama to write a letter introducing the company to senior officials in the Iraqi government.”

LaBolt said Obama declined to help in the Companion deal, because “that is not the kind of action Sen. Obama usually takes for individual companies, and our staff concluded on that basis to decline the requested assistance.”

LaBolt claimed Obama was not aware of Rezko’s connections to the security firm.

LaBolt did not explain how Frawley could have survived the routine vetting of a petitioner by the U.S. Senate office staff when it was a matter of public record that his company was controlled by Rezko.

The nixed Iraqi government deal opens questions into the nature of Obama’s relationship with agreements made by various associates with Iraq’s Electricity Ministry while Alsammarae was in charge. Obama has ties to both Alsammarae and to the recipients of several of the massive contracts he handed out.

Alsammarae, a dual Iraqi-U.S. citizen, arrived in U.S. in 1976 and currently lives in Chicago and travels frequently to Amman, Jordan, where he maintains a residence despite still being wanted in Iraq.

Alsammarae has described himself as a close friend to Rezko, a former top confidante and fundraiser for Obama. Alsammarae and Rezko had been friends for nearly 30 years, since the two were classmates at the Illinois Institute of Technology.

WND reported Alsammarae posted more than one-third of Rezko’s jail bond earlier this year, putting up as surety his $1.9 million Chicago home and two other properties.

Alsammarae contributed the maximum allowable donation of $2,300 to Obama’s campaign, sending money six times in January, February and March. Obama donated the funds to charity in April, only after Alsammarae posted bond for Rezko.

As electricity minister, Alsammarae not only granted a Rezko firm the $50 million security training contract but also approved a contract with another Rezko company, Rezmar, to construct a 250-megawatt plant in the Kurdistani city of Chamchamal. That contract was granted to both Rezmar and the London-based General Mediterranean Holdings, which is headed by British billionaire Nadhmi Auchi, who was also involved in a large real estate deal in Chicago with Rezko and others around Obama.

Auchi, a former Baathist who left Iraq in 1979, was convicted in 2003 in a French court of corruption in an oil deal that stretched back to the Saddam Hussein regime. Auchi denies the charges.

Auchi could not be reached for comment

In another connection to Obama, when Alsammarae was jailed in Iraq in 2006, his Chicago-based family reportedly contacted Obama’s U.S. Senate office for information. Obama’s office passed a written request to the State Department about Alsammarae Oct. 16, 2006, and received a reply from the U.S. consul in Iraq about a week later. The reply was forwarded by Obama’s staff to Alsammarae’s daughter.

It wasn’t immediately clear how Alsammarae landed his electricity ministry job. He was an outspoken critic of the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and publicly has supported Hussein.

In August 2000, Alsammarae, a board member of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, appeared in Washington alongside celebrities such as Martin Sheen and British politician George Galloway at a demonstration against U.N. sanctions on Saddam’s regime.

Even as late as last month, Alsammarae delivered a press conference stating he hoped the insurgency in Iraq “would continue [against U.S. occupation] and avenges the Iraqi people.”

American political insiders suggest Alsammarae received major insider help in securing his U.S.-brokered Iraqi government position. Unconfirmed reports point to Alsammarae’s previous Baathist background as being a factor in his elevated status in post-Saddam Iraq.

Alammarae was accused in a federal filing during the Rezko federal corruption trial of being the recipient of a $1 million bribe from Rezko to deliver the original Companion deal. No charges have yet been filed, though the accuser is Daniel Mahru, the former partner in the Companion deal.

Alsammarae was the only cabinet-level Iraqi official to be convicted and jailed for misusing money during his time in office. In April, Alsammarae made an appearance on CBS’s “60 Minutes” to defend his troubled conduct in Iraq and in the U.S.

An Interpol warrant for his arrest, issued in 2007 at the request of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki’s government, was taken down after Alsammarae was forgiven for some parts of his conduct by an Iraqi legislative initiative, according to Arabic-language Iraqi criminal court documents obtained by WND and translated into English. Alsammarae has been warned by the Maliki government not to return to Iraq. Other charges are still pending, and Alsammarae has been warned by the Maliki government not to return to Iraq.

Response to Edmund re AAAN

October 28, 2008

Edmond, I understand what AAAN is and what they say they are – two different things.

As for Khalidi, he may have been educated in the US – so was Osama Bin Laden, William Ayres, and other evil people.  He has however, been an operative in the PLO, is PRO-Palestine, has been the mouthpiece for Arafat, and speaks against the US and Israel, and in favor of Hamas and Palestine.

THAT indicates where his loyalties are, which are shared with a vast number of his friends.  Most psychologists and those who study the human condition, will tell you that people tend to associate with those like themselves.  We often have no choice in a job, but in our personal lives, we are drawn to those who reflect similar interests, ideologies, personality etc.  It is not an accident that Ayres, Khalidi and Obama are friends who wine and dine together.  And there are many others who share their attitudes, and share a disdain to outright hatred for Israel – such as George Soros. 

Khalidi’s course at Columbia focuses on anti-Semetic rhetoric and concepts, according to those who have reviewed his agenda. 

As fro ACCN – they proclaim an agenda that serves interests of Arab Americans, and they do that.  But they have an additional agenda, which is to support anti-Semetic sentiment and actions. 

This whole business is like a fragrant onion – with vast layers to be peeled away until you reach the core that is strong smelling and makes your eyes water.
