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). 

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.

Obama and Friends Party like it’s 2003 !!

October 28, 2008

A day does not go by that more damning information comes out.  Today the buzz is about the LA Times, who has admitted to having a ‘video tape’ on the happenings at a party in 2003 in Chicago, where friends gathered to bid a fond adieu to Rashid Khalidi.  And who is Khalidi you ask?  Well, he is an infamous anti-American, anti-Zionist, former PLO, aide and spokesperson for terrorist Yasser Arafat.  Khalidi is ‘best friends’ with William Ayres and his wife, and close pals with the Obama family (even babysitting for the Obamas). 

The LA Times has refused to make public the tape – indicating it would be unfair to Obama, and should not be regarded as relevant at this time.  The soiree. thrown by the AAAN (Arab American Action Network, a group founded by Khalidi)  was grand, including entertainment, music, a host of stellar guests, such as the Obamas, Ayres, and other prominents from Chicago’s radical left community.

Even when Obama claims no personal awareness of Ayres, they both donated money ($75,000) to AAAN, and the 3 couples have socialized together in each other’s homes, as well as at social functions.  That night Obama gave a speech honoring his friend Khalidi, praising him and his accomplishments.  Khalidi was about to embark on a new job in NYC, at where else, Columbia U.  He has since turned his course (Middle East Affairs) into a program promoting anti-Semitism. 

AAAN is a non profit that  promotes hatred of Israel, Palestinian terrorism, and believes that Israel is an illigitimate nation. 

The LA Times wrote of the party in 2003, and I am duplicating it here, since the goings on at the party and the attitudes of those in attendence are reflected in the LA Times piece.

“It was a celebration of Palestinian culture — a night of music, dancing and a dash of politics. Local Arab Americans were bidding farewell to Rashid Khalidi, an internationally known scholar, critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights, who was leaving town for a job in New York.

A special tribute came from Khalidi’s friend and frequent dinner companion, the young state Sen. Barack Obama. Speaking to the crowd, Obama reminisced about meals prepared by Khalidi’s wife, Mona, and conversations that had challenged his thinking.

His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been “consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases. . . . It’s for that reason that I’m hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation — a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid’s dinner table,” but around “this entire world.”…

[T]he warm embrace Obama gave to Khalidi, and words like those at the professor’s going-away party, have left some Palestinian American leaders believing that Obama is more receptive to their viewpoint than he is willing to say.

Their belief is not drawn from Obama’s speeches or campaign literature, but from comments that some say Obama made in private and from his association with the Palestinian American community in his hometown of Chicago, including his presence at events where anger at Israeli and U.S. Middle East policy was freely expressed.

At Khalidi’s 2003 farewell party, for example, a young Palestinian American recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, “then you will never see a day of peace.”

One speaker likened “Zionist settlers on the West Bank” to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been “blinded by ideology.”

Obama adopted a different tone in his comments and called for finding common ground. But his presence at such events, as he worked to build a political base in Chicago, has led some Palestinian leaders to believe that he might deal differently with the Middle East than … his opponents for the White House….

At Khalidi’s going-away party in 2003, the scholar lavished praise on Obama, telling the mostly Palestinian American crowd that the state senator deserved their help in winning a U.S. Senate seat. “You will not have a better senator under any circumstances,” Khalidi said.”

Here again we have the Obamas socializing with people who share anti-American sentiments, anti-Israel hatred, and we are expected to believe that Obama shares no such attitudes or feelings?   Khalidi was quoted by the LA Times as expressing his understanding that Obama needed to verbalize his support of Israel and Jewish Americans in order to get elected as US President.

It is no wonder the LA Times has the video tape under wraps – it would be explosive information – the ultimate October Surprise.  As it is few will know about the party either, since it was not covered much at the time back in ’03, and people are not talking about Khalidi (though they should be). 

The sad thing is that Obama has managed to convince the majority of Jewish Americans that he supports Israel and its cause, when he is tied in so many ways and on so many levels with Palestine and its supporters (such as Hamas). 

Obama has crafted talking points and presentation suited to each of the target groups, carefully constructing a message that he knows will resonate with each special interest audience.  The words apparently are empty – designed for impact and to sway support but without meaning.  How will Jews around the world feel when Obama’s denies support for Israel, and in fact orchestrates support for Hamas and Palenstinian terrorism. 

Could this get any more sad and depressing?  Apparently so, since every day there is more to report.  I wish I had never started down this path.  It is demoralizing!

Words of a Wise Man to ALL Voters

October 27, 2008

Wise words for an election year ………..

* You cannot help the poor, by destroying the rich.

* You cannot strengthen the weak, by weakening the strong.

* You cannot bring about prosperity, by discouraging thrift.

* You cannot lift the wage earner up, by pulling the wage payer down.

* You cannot further the brotherhood of man, by inciting class hatred.

* You cannot build character and courage, by taking away men’s initiative and independence.

* You cannot help men permanently, by doing for them what they could, and should, do for themselves .

Do you recognize the author
It was Abraham Lincoln

Very, very wise words, written years ago and we still

don’t get it….. Why do MOST People think the

Government owes them a living? What happened to 

 ‘Government of the people, by the people, and for the

people’?

2009 – What will YOU get for 2/3 BILLION dollars?

October 26, 2008

It is pretty simple and straight forward :

 

1)   Tax increases on everything

2)   Confiscation of all guns

3)   National health care (it will be a mess and bury us financially)

4)   Increased lobbying of Congress reaching levels of excess

5)   More pork barrel spending – aka ear-marks well hidden in every bill.

6)   “Fairness Doctrine” – heard of it?  It’s a doozy – intended to shut down talk radio (there shall be NO criticism of THE ONE) – a venue in which Conservatives are able to have a voice to counter-balance MSM.  Free speech?  ONLY if you are nice to Obamasiah.

7)   Elimination of secret ballots in the workplace – intended to swell the ranks of labor unions, increase the base for more dues, and provide a much larger and more powerful lobbying force against Congress.

8)   More new laws put on the books to further hamper and curtail freedoms and make things even more combersome and toxic

9)   Radical changes to education that will do nothing to elevate our kids’ competiveness or competence.

10)              More regulations imposed on all businesses making it harder to expand, make a profit

11)              Disdain and contempt for ordinary ‘folks’ – it is all about Ivy League, the Arts, and mysterious organizations that support “progressive” causes and the ‘inner circle’ of intelligentsia.   

12)               Out of control spending by the Trifecta of Pork  (Reid, Pelosi, Obama)

13)  The economy falling far lower and remaining there for many years.

14)  Wall Street dropping to 1700

15)  Censoring widespread

16)  Trends and events that are going to look a lot like 21st Century Marxism

17)  Increased government (bodies, agencies)

18)  Questionable people in key positions with at the least, dubious connections and background

19)  Global crisis –

20)  SAME DAY voter registration and voting – NO verification of identity, status

21)  Massive voter fraud (see Acorn become an even bigger influence in all 50 states)

22)  Sometime in a 3-year timeframe, civil war in this country as people come to terms with what is really going on

23)  Proliferation of 501C4 organizations that operate outside the law, in secret, with hidden agendas and no accountability.

24)  Increased gas prices – they have wanted  to keep prices high so Americans would reduce consumption to avoid new production.

25)  Nationalization of your 401K – yup you heard it here – they will take your  money, give you govt. bonds, pay you 3% interest, and when you retire (if you ever can) you’ll get one check for the total including the 3% interest.  Big whoop!

 

 

            

 

There is a list – for starters.  This is a minor list but it will affect everyone and likely in ways we can’t yet imagine.

Obama citizenship –

October 24, 2008

In late August Phillip Berg, attorney in PA and former Attorney General of PA, filed a lawsuit against Obama, demanding certified documentation of birth.  The case is being heard by a PA court, and no ruling has yet been made.  Obama, the DNC, the FEC have all been served.  Berg was made aware of the issues with Obama’s birth by a lawyer from Texas who had done research on the matter.  Since that time several people have volunteered to work with Berg on moving this case forward.

Note the timing on this – Berg/staff are awaiting a decision, but within the last week Obama’s attorney filed papers with the court to demand all records about Obama be sealed.  As people await a legal decision (which may prompt the case going to the US Supreme Court), Obama makes a dash to Hawaii.  As noted before, his grandmother is elderly, and he claims she is in serious condition and he could not wait to get over there.  Why then did not he take his family with him?  He left Thursday morning and will arrive in Hawaii tonight late – leaving one business day in Hawaii, and then returns to the US on Saturday!  I find the timing highly suspect to say the least.  Why not go on Friday and come back Sunday night? 

IF Obama has nothing to hide, why petition the court, Harvard, Columbia, and the Secy of State of Hawaii to seal all documents relating to Obama?  That suggests (no, SCREAMS) foul play. 

Berg is going to need financial support if he has to file with and appear before the Supreme Court (such cases are enormously expensive):  Help him out by going to:  http://www.obamacrimes.com/

Racism or just Stupidity?

October 22, 2008

If you don’t think this race is about race, perhaps you should think again! 

Listen to this audio – it is quite stunning, and very telling about what is going on.

http://www.breitbart.tv/?p=194983

Does this mean that most blacks are voting for Obama because he is Obama claims to be black?  Certainly decisions don’t seem to have much of anything to do with the issues.  How would these same people vote if they knew Obama was in fact not African Black, but black Arab? 

I think this audio clip as well as many ‘average citizen’ interviews on the street are indicative of a severe lack of knowledge about and understand of the issues.  It also seems many people, otherwise unaware, are voting based on race.  At this point I don’t think anyone can forecast what will happen behind voting booth curtains. 

Right now it is PC to indicate support for Obama.  But all the swirling negative information flying around Obama will surely make people pause and contemplate the many lingering questions.  In addition, so many Obama supporters are so vehement and in some cases rabid in their support, they won’t listen, or they are so ‘in your face’ it becomes futile to say anything.  I think that is why there are so many blogs on the Internet that enable people to express their frustrations and feelings about Obama. 

One thing that people need to be concerned about is sensoring.  There are many members of the national media who, after writing or presenting a less than flattering opinion about Obama, they are harshly dealt with, and restricted from further contact with the candidate.  This is alarming – when a member of the media or a citizen can’t criticize or question a presidential candidate (much less a President) we are moving ever more quickly to Third World status where dictators determine the fate of dissenters.

Stupidity? I certainly hope not – there is simply too much at stake!

The Selling of the Big White House

October 21, 2008

Most reports about the JFK campaign indicate that his father Joe Kennedy ‘bought’ him the election.  It is certainly possible.  We came to know a great deal more about the Kennedy’s in more recent years, including Joe Kennedy’s determination to see his son in the White House. 

 

There are many questions about a number of former Presidents  and how they achieved their position, not the least of which is LBJ.  But there is no historical comparison to what is going on now. 

 

Today we have Barack Hussein Obama – a man who adamantly denies most of what has been written about him, despite the facts, and who for some reason, won’t touch, and is unwilling to acknowledge that he is not Black African but black Arab.  What has he to hide?

 

Today we have this man of many secrets, many contradictions, with negativity swirling around him who is the possible if not likely next President.  We have a man who has ‘raised’ over $600 million (over ½ billion dollars!) – and while the laws do not limit how much one can raise or spend, it is a mind-boggling amount for a campaign.  He and his campaign claim that “average Joe’s” have been contributing in amounts under $200.  But of course the numbers don’t gel!  He claims 2.5 million individual contributors, but over 600,000 entries (donation list) show donations in excess of $4250 (maximum allowed by individual), or in odd amounts rarely seen by any fund raiser – such as $ 983.52, or $1106.04.  Obama has refused to provide the Election Commission with the majority of details or names of contributors.   Most who have evaluated the minimal records provided indicate the numerous ‘odd’ entries suggest foreign donations being converted to dollars. 

 

US Election Law prohibits foreign donations.  US Election Law prohibits individual donations in excess of $4250.  US Election Law prohibits a non-natural-born citizen from running for US President. 

 

Mr. Obama, as has been reported by various media outlets and commentators, has direct ties to many people from the Middle East and Africa.  (note – many people do not realize that there are more Arab countries in Africa than there are Black African – check  your map). 

 

Obama’s long relationship with Kahalid Al Monsour is a pipeline to the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia, who has vast financial resources.  They are NOT friends of America.  They finance terrorist activities around the world, and support any action that will eliminate Israel. 

 

So, what if – what if  Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, Al Monsour’s business partner who Monsour counsels, and whom Obama knows – what if this prince has been funneling millions of dollars into the campaign???  It is now estimated that ‘foreign donations’ could be a low of $30 million to a high of $150 million.  That much money buys a lot of clout and influence!

 

Some media in the UK and even Africa, have indicated that Obama is nothing more than a puppet, whose strings are being pulled by one or more people/groups.  There is the feeling that his ‘credentials’ (of Black Arab father, Muslim, white mother), made him the perfect candidate to groom.  This all sounds like a conspiracy – but what if??

 

If Arab/Islamic nations wanted revenge, and/or control over the US, what better way to achieve it?  Foster crisis, up the oil prices to a gut-wrenching level, and put into place a man of mystery whose background is almost a blank slate.  A man who has been indoctrinated into communism, socialism, radicalism for his entire life – a perfect foil to offer up to the American people – young, nice looking, calm, serene, with a glibness that enables him to shoot from the hip.

 

But think about this –  if you KNEW you were going to win, would not that enable you to swagger with confidence, speak with calm confidence, and make outrageous promises?  In 2007, in front a group of ‘community organizer’ organizations such as Acorn, Obama told them (the video is on the Web and I paraphrase)   Before my inauguration I will travel the country to meet with you, get your input so you can help me craft a plan for my Administration”   The man was trailing the primary at that point. 

 

IF, as I suspect, we have sold out the White House – it is not a piece of real estate we have lost, but the Republic.  It is not just the house but our economy, way of life, and most of all FREEDOM.  The price of the White House is one we can’t afford to give up.

To save the Republic we must pull together and support McCain.  He is an open book, dedicated to preserving Democracy, and eliminating the waste and corruption – in Congress and on Wall Street.

 

America needs to truly VET Obama NOW – get all the rumors and questions clearly answered – not by way of Obama’s denials, but by reality of fact, figures, documents.  Meanwhile, John McCain and Sarah Palin can and will keep us safe and reform our government which desperately needs it.

 

As Joe Biden said this weekend at a fundraiser, (again paraphrased) – “Be assured that within 6 months, Obama, the next President will be tested with a major world crisis, one created, like the testing of John Kennedy.  Mark my words and remember this date when I tell you that a crisis of the next Administration is coming”

 

There is a red storm coming – can we afford to have an untried, untested man in office to manage it?  NO !

International experts are now talking about new military build-up in China, new moves by terrorists groups with indicators they are planning a much bigger attack than 9/11, and Russia is flexing Communist-like muscle.  We can’t afford a young inexperienced man to be ‘tested’ in such uncertain, dangerous times.
