Reverse Illegal Immigration

We can only pray this will come true. Received this through the eighteen zulu grapevine,.....

From The Manitoba Herald, Canada, as Reported by Clive Runnels, August 6, 2010,... who says those Canucks don't have a sense of humor?

The flood of American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week, sparking calls for increased patrols to stop the illegal immigration. The recent actions of the Tea Party are prompting an exodus among left-leaning citizens who fear they'll soon be required to hunt, pray, and to agree with Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck.

Canadian border farmers say it's not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, animal-rights activists and Unitarians crossing their fields at night. "I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn," said Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota. The producer was cold, exhausted and hungry. He asked me if I could spare a latte and some free-range chicken. When I said I didn't have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?"

In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher fences, but the liberals scaled them. He then installed loudspeakers that blared Rush Limbaugh across the fields. "Not real effective," he said. "The liberals still got through and Rush annoyed the cows so much that they wouldn't give any milk."

Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals near the Canadian border, pack them into Volvo station wagons and drive them across the border where they are simply left to fend for themselves." A lot of these people are not prepared for our rugged conditions," an Ontario border patrolman said. "I found one carload without a single bottle of imported drinking water. They did have a nice little Napa Valley Cabernet, though."

When liberals are caught, they're sent back across the border, often wailing loudly that they fear retribution from conservatives. Rumors have been circulating about plans being made to build re-education camps where liberals will be forced to drink domestic beer and watch NASCAR races.

In recent days, liberals have turned to ingenious ways of crossing the border. Some have been disguised as senior citizens taking a bus trip to buy cheap Canadian prescription drugs. After catching a half-dozen young vegans in powdered wig disguises, Canadian immigration authorities began stopping buses and quizzing the supposed senior - citizens about Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney to prove that they were alive in the '50s. "If they can't identify the accordion player on The Lawrence Welk Show, we become very suspicious about their age." an official said. Canadian citizens have complained that the illegal immigrants are creating an organic-broccoli shortage and are renting all the Michael Moore movies. "I really feel sorry for American liberals, but the Canadian economy just can't support them." an Ottawa resident said. "How many art-history majors does one country need?"

In an effort to ease tensions between the United States and Canada, Vice President Biden met with the Canadian ambassador and pledged that the administration would take steps to reassure liberals. A source close to President Obama said, "We're going to have some Paul McCartney and Peter, Paul & Mary concerts. And we might even put some endangered species on postage stamps. The President is determined to reach out." he said. The Herald will be interested to see if Obama can actually raise Mary from the dead in time for the concert.

Liberals Just Don't Get it - Van Jones' example

Most of you remember Van Jones, one of Obama's radical picks to be a Czar (Green Jobs Czar) in Obama's Deconstruction of the Constitution Administration. Van Jones was forced to resign due to many things he said and the heat the Administration was taking on Van Jones' radical views.....but he is one of many.

The Democrats are having a cow over the projected Republican gains this coming election so they have pulled out all plugs attempting to dilute the Conservative message since they don't have a message of their own except a "counter Republican, Counter Tea Party message".

Van Jones was back in the news a couple days ago admonishing people that "if they thought things were bad now, just wait until the Tea Party takes over." Van Jones went further saying the American people will regret their choices once the Tea Party gets control of our lives, our health care, our jobs, etc.

This demonstrates the Liberal - Socialist mindset where they believe Government must control all aspects our our lives. In my view the Tea Party, which I fully support, has the direct opposite view of Government ...... Limited Government,...out of our lives as much as possible,...and certainly no taxation with representation.

In case you can't remember Van Jones, the excellent Glenn Beck expose on him is embedded below. Glenn was at the forefront of the effort to expose Van Jones for what he was and is,...a radical socialist who believes in big government, long as it is a Socialist government.

You Cut Vote - 27 September 2010

It's You Cut time again where the American People vote on what they want cut from the bloated Federal Budget. This week's choice are below. Please Vote by going to:

I voted to eliminate the TARP Program.

Terminate the TARP Program Prohibiting Any Additional Bailouts

Save taxpayers potentially several billion dollars over the next ten years
While the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) is supposed to end on October 3rd, under a provision of the recently enacted financial regulation bill it is still possible for the government to make new bailouts through any program that was already in place on June 25, 2010. This could include additional commitments to AIG and / or additional commitments to the Administration’s mortgage modification programs. In August it was estimated that spending from TARP will range between $4 billion and $7 billion a year between 2011 and 2014, mainly for the Administration’s mortgage programs. Acting to terminate TARP now may reduce these expenditures.

Terminate the Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation
Save taxpayers $10 million over ten years.
The Columbus Foundation is an agency of the government established in 1992 with an endowment funded by the sale of coins to provide fellowships “to encourage and support research, study, and labor designed to produce new discoveries in all fields of endeavor for the benefit of mankind.” The program is duplicative of other government efforts, and according to the Obama Administration, “the Foundation has not demonstrated clear outcomes from its awards and has high overhead costs.” Finally, no Administration has ever requested funding for the Foundation.

Eliminate Government Funding for Auto Research that the Private Sector is Already Doing
Save taxpayers $2 billion over ten years
The Department of Energy’s “FreedomCAR” program provides funding for research on fuel cell technology through a partnership between the federal government and private industry. While the federally funded program’s mission of putting greener cars on American highways is worthwhile, the private sector is already conducting this type of research. Cutting this duplicative program would save American taxpayers $2 billion over 10 years. (NOTE: This proposed cut was the winner of a YouCut program sponsored by Rep. John Kline (MN) in which 1,400 participants cast votes.)

Terminate Department of Agriculture High Energy Cost Grants
Save taxpayers $180 million over ten years.
The High Energy Cost program provides grants (as opposed to loans) for the purpose of improving and providing energy generation, transmission and distribution facilities serving communities with above average home energy costs. The Administration has proposed terminating this program arguing that "it is duplicative of, and less effective than, the Rural Utilities Service's (RUS) Electric Loan Program."

Reduce Funding for the Wild Horse and Burro Program to Previously Projected Levels

Save taxpayers approximately $280 million over ten years
Since 1971 the Department of Interior has managed a program to maintain and support the wild horse and burro population that roams federal lands. This program received $64 million in funding this year, an increase of 77% compared to the 2008 level. Various administrations have struggled to achieve a sustainable population of wild horse and burros. While legislative and administrative changes are necessary, reducing spending to a minimum of 2008 levels would achieve savings of $28 million this year for taxpayers.

Old Farmer's Advice,...or Tractor Philosophy

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered…...not yelled.

Meanness don't just happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about, ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don 't judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good and honorable life, then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

Don 't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.

If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.

Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

FBI Stats on Arizona, California and New Mexico

Doesn't this make you wonder why our government is fighting Arizona SB1070 bill so hard and protecting the illegals in the US?

Alternative Title: Why we need the Arizona Immigration Law enacted Nationwide

With all the negative reports being printed in the news media here are the statistics they fail to report. The numbers don't lie, and these are the official numbers that are usually kept lower than what they really are.

Well folks, here are the numbers. The following information is compiled from Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security reports:

* 83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens.

* 86% of warrants for murder in Albuquerque are for illegal aliens.

* 75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.

* 24.9% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals.

* 40.1% of all inmates in Arizona detention centers are Mexican nationals.

* 48.2% of all inmates in New Mexico detention centers are Mexican nationals.

* 29% (630,000) convicted illegal alien felons fill our State and Federal prisons at a cost of $1.6 billion annually.

* 53% plus of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.

* 50% plus of all gang members in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

* 71% plus of all apprehended cars stolen in 2005 in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California were stolen by Illegal aliens or "transport coyotes".

* 47% of cited/stopped drivers in California have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle.. Of that 47%, 92% are illegal aliens.

* 63% of cited/stopped drivers in Arizona have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 63%, 97% are illegal aliens

* 66% of cited/stopped drivers in New Mexico have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 66% 98% are illegal aliens.

* 380,000 plus "anchor babies" were born in the US to illegal alien parents in just one year, making 380,000 babies automatically US citizens (from which the Constitutional amendment making this so, was never intended to be).

* 97.2% of all costs incurred from those illegal births were paid by the American taxpayers.

That is almost ALL of them!

And remember YOU are supporting ALL of these illegals no matter where they are now.
Every time another illegal runs the border breaking our laws, your pocket just gets lighter and robbed more!

1947 - Was this the Start of the End?

The year is 1947

Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little over 60 years ago, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico. This is a well known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and other federal agencies and organizations.

However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April 1948, nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:

Albert A. Gore, Jr..

Hillary Rodham

John F. Kerry

William J. Clinton

Howard Dean

Nancy Pelosi

Dianne Feinstein

Charles E. Schumer

Barbara Boxer

See what happens when aliens breed with sheep and jackasses?

I certainly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you. It did for me. No wonder they support the bill to help illegal aliens!

KANSAS: Support Gun Rights - Vote on November 2nd

From the National Rifle Association (NRA) Legislative e-mail alerts:

Vote YES on 1 November 2nd! A 1905 ruling from the Kansas Supreme Court interpreted Section 4 of the Kansas Constitution to mean that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms only exists as a collective right for those in the militia or military and no individual right exists.

For that reason, the NRA has worked with the Kansas State Rifle Association, Senator Mike Petersen and the legislature, to pass a Constitutional Amendment during the 2009 legislative session, which provides new language that clarifies Section 4 and guarantees an individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms. The language reads: "A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and state, for lawful hunting and recreational use, and for any other lawful purpose."

Our elected officials have done law-abiding Kansans a tremendous service by passing this landmark Constitutional Amendment. Now it is up to YOU to do your part on November 2, 2010 and vote this provision into the Kansas Constitution.

Paid for by the National Rifle Association. Join the NRA!

Sept 23, 1779 - this Day in History

The very best man I know told me “Hard Times Don’t Last, But Hard Men Do”.

One of the very first of many examples of the uniquely American concept of “Never Say Die”, or “Never Quit” attitude occurred 23 September 1779, exactly 231 years ago today, when John Paul Jones’ Squadron of the fledging American Navy met a merchant convoy off the coast of England protected by the 50 gun British warship HMS Serapis.

Early into the three hour battle, Jones’ ship, the Bonhomme Richard, was getting the short end of the stick being outgunned by the Brits. Jones’ locked the Richard together with the Serapis and things still appeared dire for the Americans. British cannons firing at close range setting the wooden timbered hull of the Richard on fire. The Brits asked Jones to surrender and his reply, from the deck of the Richard into the history books, was “I have not yet begun to fight”.

Jones’ crew repelled a Brit attempt to board, and was able to throw a grenade into the lower deck of the Serapis causing a giant explosion and turning the tide of the battle allowing Jones’ crew to board the Serapis and cause the British Commander (Captain Pearson) to surrender. Good thing he did as the Richard soon sank afterwards.

The example of John Paul Jones and many other Americans since, known and unknown, bring us to today where the need to re-kindle the American spirit of not giving up and not giving in and solve the seemingly over whelming problems we have today with Government run amok; giant national debt which our grandchildren will inherit; an economy rapidly doing down hill and a population comprised of generations who have no idea what it is pay their dues and little knowledge of what our forefathers, from General Washington to General Eisenhower, did to ensure this Country’s greatness.

Today, say to yourself, “I have not yet begun to fight”,… to your family and friends,…hell talk to strangers too!,… about the direction this country is going and the obvious results unless we, the People, take charge and vote these buffoons out of office.

White House Economic Team - Rats Leaving the Sinking Ship

White House Rats leaving the sinking ship,….first Peter Orszag – Chief Council for Economic Issues, then Christina Romer - Council of Economic Advisers Chair, and now Lawrence Summers – Director for the National Economic Council,…sounds like the rats leaving the sinking ship.

Yahoo! News reports:

The White House said Tuesday that Lawrence Summers, director of the National Economic Council, would leave at the end of the year to return to Harvard University . Though administration officials said Obama had known for some time that Summers would depart this year, news of his pending exit comes amid deep concern over the sluggish pace of the recovery, as well as criticism of the team that conceived the administration's economic policies.

Obama has already lost two other high-level economic advisers: budget director Peter Orszag and the chief of the Council of Economic Advisers, Christina Romer, both of whom resigned this summer. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner would be the only one of Obama's top-tier economic advisers to remain with the administration, should he stay through the end of the year.

Fox News reported that the White house was looking to fill Summers’ position with a women with a background in business. Really?? It's about time.

By the Numbers:

57% of President Eisenhower’s staff worked in the private business sector before being appointed to cabinet posts.

56% of President Reagan’s staff worked in the private business sector before being appointed to cabinet posts.

39% of President Clinton’s staff worked in the private business sector before being appointed to cabinet posts.

55% of President G.W. Bush’s staff worked in the private business sector before being appointed to cabinet posts.

8% of President Obama’s staff have worked in the private business sector before being appointed to cabinet posts.


92% of President Obama’s cabinets appointees who have NEVER worked in the private sector businesses, only in government, academia or non-profit jobs,….can anybody say “Community Organizing?”

"Bud" Day, Medal of Honor Recipient - Speaks on What Torture Really Is

George Everett "Bud" Day(born February 24, 1925) is a retired U.S. Air Force Colonel and Command Pilot who served during the Vietnam War. He is often cited as being the most decorated U.S. service member since General Douglas MacArthur, having received some seventy decorations, a majority for actions in combat. Day is a recipient of the Medal of Honor.

I got shot down over North Vietnam in 1967, a Squadron. Commander. After I returned in 1973..I published 2 books that dealt a lot with "real torture" in Hanoi . Our make- believe president is branding our country as a bunch of torturers when he has no idea what torture is.

As for me, I put thru a mock execution because I would not respond... pistol whipped on the head....same event.. Couple of days later... hung by my feet all day. I escaped and a couple of weeks later, I got shot and recaptured. Shot was OK...what happened afterwards was not.

They marched me to Vinh...put me in the rope trick,....almost pulled my arms out of the sockets. Beat me on the head with a little wooden rod until my eyes were swelled shut, and my unshot, unbroken hand a pulp.

Next day hung me by the arms...rebroke my right wrist...wiped out the nerves in my arms that control the hands....rolled my fingers up into a ball. Only left the slightest movement of my L forefinger. So I started answering with some incredible lies.

Sent me to Hanoi strapped to a barrel of gas in the back of a truck.

Hanoi….on my knees....rope trick again. Beaten by a big fool.

Into leg irons on a bed in Heartbreak Hotel.

Much kneeling--hands up at Zoo.

Really bad beating for refusing to condemn Lyndon Johnson.

Several more kneeling events. I could see my knee bone thru kneeling holes.

There was an escape from the annex to the Zoo. I was the Senior Officer of a large building because of escape...they started a mass torture of all commanders.

I think it was July 7, 1969...they started beating me with a car fan belt. In first 2 days I took over 300 strokes...then stopped counting because I never thought I would live thru it.

They continued day-night torture to get me to confess to a non-existent part in the escape. This went on for at least 3 days. On my knees... fan belting...cut open my scrotum with fan belt stroke,....opened up both knee holes again. My fanny looked like hamburger...I could not lie on my back.

They tortured me into admitting that I was in on the escape...and that my 2 cell mates knew about it.

The next day I denied the lie.

They commenced torturing me again with 3- 6- or 9 strokes of the fan belt every day from about July 11 or 12 to 14 October 1969. I continued to refuse to lie about my cell mates again.

Now, the point of this is that our make-believe president has declared to the world that we (U.S..) are a bunch of torturers...Thus it will be OK to torture us next time when they catch us...because that is what the U.S. does.

Our make-believe president is a know nothing fool who thinks that pouring a little water on some one's face, or hanging a pair of women's pants over an Arabs head is TORTURE. He is a meathead.

I just talked to MOH holder Leo Thorsness, who was also in my squadron, in jail.. was John McCain...and we agree that McCain does not speak for the POW group when he claims that Al Gharib was torture...or that "water boarding" is torture.

Our president and those fools around him who keep bad mouthing our great country are a disgrace to the United States . Please pass this info on to Sean Hannity. He is free to use it to point out the stupidity of the claims that water boarding...which has no after torture. If it got the Arab to cough up the story about how he planned the attack on the twin towers in NYC ....hurrah for the guy who poured the water.

Arguing with a Liberal on Blaming Bush

Remember this if/when you are arguing with a Liberal on whose fault it is,....

The day the Democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009 -- it was actually January 3rd 2007.

The day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives & Senate, the start of the 110th Congress.

The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

"For those of you who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault," think about this:

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress.

At the time:
The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was +3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%

George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!

Remember the day.

January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

THANK YOU DEMOCRATS for taking us from 12,621 DOW, +3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOS!

(BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy).

And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? Barack OBAMA did.

And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? Barack OBAMA, Barney "Mumbles" Frank and Chris Dodd & the rest of the Democratic Congress.

So when some idiot tries to blame Bush for all that's still wrong ...


Bush may have been in the car but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel of the car they were driving.

Set the record straight on Bush! Check out the Bruce Hough Blog

And remember what Ronald Reagan said,....."It's not that liberals aren't smart, it's just that so much of what they know isn't so."

You Cut Rollup - So Far

Previous Cuts Chosen By the Public under Eric Cantor's (D-VA) You Cut Program:

Each week, the public votes on which items should be brought to the House Floor. Here is a list of previous winning items.

Week One: Cut the New Non-Reformed Welfare Program ($25 Billion Savings)

Week Two: Eliminate Federal Employee Pay Raise ($30 Billion Savings)

Week Three: Reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ($30 Billion Savings)

Week Four: Sell Excess Federal Property ($15 Billion Savings)

Week Five: Prohibit Hiring New IRS Agents to Enforce Health Care Law ($15 Billion Savings)

Week Six: Taxpayer Subsidized Union Activities ($1.2 Billion Savings)

Week Seven: Prohibit Stimulus Funding for Promotional Signage (Tens of Millions)

Week Eight: Prohibit Sleeper Car Subsidies on Amtrak ($1.2 billion Savings)

Week Nine: Bipartisan Proposal to Terminate AEITC ($1.1 billion Savings)

If only we had a conservative Congress in majority who could pass these bills onto the Senate then to the President. I am under no illusion that he (Obama) will approve these cuts, but at least we can expose the tax and spend politicians for what they are.

STRATFOR - The Tea Party and Insurgency Politics

I listened to John McCain (R-AZ) last night on Fox News. McCain claimed that the Tea Party spawned from the declining economy. Well, John you are about clueless. The Tea Party was born from the Anti-Constitutional governance by the Democrat Party aided by some Republicans, which have modeled their view of government from Socialist-Marxist ideology. While economy and unemployment is a big concern from Tea Party activists and other conservatives, it is the arrogance, growth of big government and increasing governmental powers, massive spending, and taxation without representation by and of the Obama Administration and Pelosi-Reid Congress that has birthed the Tea Party Movement. If we downsize the Federal government, deregulate where smart, repeal Obamacare, tighten government waste and abuse, and do not further tax an already over taxed population, then the economy will take care of itself.

Good article from STRATFOR

The Tea Party and Insurgency Politics

September 17, 2010
By Robert W. Merry

Nearly every American with a political memory recalls that Texas billionaire Ross Perot captured 19 percent of the vote when he ran for president as an independent candidate in 1992. Less well known is what happened to that vote afterward. Therein lies an intriguing political lesson that bears on today’s Tea Party movement, which emerged on the political scene nearly 17 months ago and has maintained a sustained assault on the Republican establishment ever since.

Just this week, the Tea Party scored another upset triumph, this time in Delaware , where protest candidate Christine O’Donnell outpolled establishment scion Michael N. Castle in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate. It was merely the latest in a string of political rebellions that have shaped this campaign year much as the Perot phenomenon influenced American politics in the 1990s.

Two years after the Texan’s remarkable 19 percent showing, the Perot vote — a protest movement spawned primarily by political anxiety over what was considered fiscal recklessness at the federal level (sound familiar?) — washed away the Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress. In a stern rebuke to President Bill Clinton, the Perot constituency gave full congressional control to the Republican Party for the first time in four decades. And then, just two years later, it turned around and helped elect Clinton to a second term.

The political lesson, worth pondering in these times of Tea Party rumbling, is that serious protest movements such as the Perot phenomenon or today’s Tea Party revolt never just fade away. They linger in American politics, sometimes largely unseen but sometimes quite overt, and exert a continuing tug on the course of electoral decision-making. Eventually they get absorbed into one major party or the other. In the process, they often tilt the balance of political power in the country, occasionally for substantial periods of time.

Back in the 1990s, the Perot constituency declared in word and vote that the country was on the wrong track, that the federal government was dysfunctional, that bold reform initiatives were needed to restore American democracy. These voters’ numbers and intensity of feeling rendered them a potent political force. Yet Clinton never clearly addressed their concerns during his first two years in office. He sought to govern as a vigorous leader with a huge electoral mandate when, in fact, he was elected with a mere 43 percent plurality. He announced boldly that his aim was to “repeal Reaganism” — in other words, to throw his 43 percent mandate against the policies of the most popular president in a generation.

Further, he sought to govern from the left at a time when many Americans wanted the Democrats to reshape themselves into a more centrist institution. On issue after issue — gays in the military, his big (for the time) stimulus package, his huge and complex health care initiative — Clinton positioned himself initially on the left, then sought to gain votes by inching his way toward the center. Only on the North American Free Trade Agreement, his most notable accomplishment during those two years (and also an initiative that Perot vehemently opposed), did he begin the process by going for a bipartisan coalition.

Perot’s constituency, which held the political balance of power in the 1994 campaign year, reacted by turning against the president. Election Day exit polls told the story. In Tennessee , the Perot vote broke for the two Republican Senate candidates by a margin of about 75 percent to 20 percent. In Pennsylvania ’s Senate race, it was 59 percent to 33 percent. In California ’s Senate contest, it was 60 percent to 27 percent. In New York ’s gubernatorial race, it was 70 percent to 16 percent. It appeared that the Republicans would be invited to ride the Perot constituency right into the White House two years hence. But then, reacting to major missteps by the new Republican House Speaker, Newt Gingrich, and to Clinton ’s forceful change of direction (encapsulated in his declaration that the “era of big government is over”), the Perot constituency rewarded a chastened president with another term in office.

Again, exit polls told the story in comparative numbers between the 1992 election and the 1996 election, when Perot’s share of the vote declined to 8 percent. Among independent voters, Perot’s vote share declined from 30 percent in 1992 to 17 percent in 1996; among Democrats, from 13 percent to 5 percent; among self-identified liberals, from 18 percent to 7 percent; and among moderates, from 21 percent to 9 percent. Meanwhile, Clinton ’s share of the presidential tally among independents rose from 38 percent in 1992 to 43 percent in 1996; among Democrats, from 77 percent to 84 percent; among liberals, from 68 percent to 78 percent; among moderates, from 47 percent to 57 percent. It’s clear that Perot’s 1992 voters gave Clinton his margin of victory in 1996.

Clinton’s center-left governance and deft political “triangulation” — seeking to find just the right coalition for success on any issue — had proved highly effective not only politically but in terms of governmental success. Thus did Clinton soothe the electorate and help blunt the anti-government populism that had been percolating in American politics for a number of years, fueled by such things as an attempt by members of Congress to give themselves a pay raise through a back-door maneuver that precluded any need for a public vote and revelations of House members routinely kiting checks at the so-called House Bank. Clinton restored a sense that the government was working again, and given the agitations of the electorate when he took office that represented a significant achievement.

One must always be careful with historical analogies, and the Tea Party movement differs from the Perot phenomenon in many important respects. The Tea Party activists are more conservative, more ideologically energized, probably more intense in their anger, and much more inclined to conduct their insurgency within one party (the GOP). If, as expected, these agitated voters contribute to a big Republican victory in this year’s congressional elections, it is almost inconceivable that they will turn around two years from now and foster a Barack Obama re-election triumph.

And yet, the lessons of protest politics apply equally in both instances. The Tea Party movement will not fade away with this year’s election returns. It will disrupt the routine business of American politics for some time to come. Eventually, it will be absorbed into the two-party system and cease to be an independent force — but only after its angers have been assuaged, one way or another, by a change in governmental direction.

The Perot phenomenon is not the only historical antecedent to consider in trying to understand the Tea Party movement. Another is the 1968 independent candidacy of Alabama ’s George Wallace, who captured nearly 14 percent of the national vote and landed electoral-vote pluralities in five Southern states. Richard Nixon won that year, but the Wallace candidacy rendered him a minority president, with just 43 percent of the vote (the same percentage Clinton received during the first Perot year). But Nixon wooed the angry Wallace constituency throughout his first term, and by 1972 he had incorporated it into his coalition. He captured those five Southern states and also siphoned off a large proportion of the angry white ethnic voters in America ’s big cities of the Northeast and Midwest . Reagan built on that strategy in fashioning his more powerful coalition and transforming the political balance of power in America in the 1980s.

Inevitably, both Nixon and Reagan were attacked from the left for employing this “Southern strategy” and thus — according to the critics — encouraging racist and venomous sentiments in the body politic. It was no doubt true that part of the Wallace following stemmed from the civil rights legislation of the 1960s. But it was much more than that, as any survey of that era of political instability would attest. The critics seemed to be saying that if the political system would just ignore Wallace and his constituency, they would merely fade away. But of course they wouldn’t fade away; more likely they would become angrier and probably more widespread. In the end, the South became a more mainstream region than it had been in 1968, and American politics moved onward, as always.

All of this brings us back to the Tea Party movement. What it represents and portends can best be scrutinized by trying to answer three fundamental questions: First, is this movement for real and is it enduring? The answer is yes. It represents a political wave akin to the Perot or Wallace constituencies. Polls indicate some 18 percent of Americans identify themselves as Tea Party supporters — nearly equaling the vote percentage of Perot in 1992 and greater than the Wallace constituency in 1968. The largest Tea Party group, Tea Party Patriots, says it has a thousand local organizations with 15 million “associates.” Overall, the movement has the political whip hand in this campaign year, which is why it has been able to wreak so much havoc on the mainstream political system throughout this year’s primaries. The Tea Party has banished establishment GOP candidates and pulled forward previously obscure true believers such as Rand Paul in Kentucky, Sharron Angle in Nevada, Mike Lee in Utah, Ken Buck in Colorado, Joe Miller in Alaska, Marco Rubio in Florida and, of course, Christine O’Donnell in Delaware.

Some of these candidates, most notably Angle and O’Donnell, carry sufficiently heavy political baggage that Democrats have concluded their chances are enhanced with those GOP nominations. O’Donnell is given almost no chance of wresting the Delaware seat from the Democrats. But all of them are insurgency politicians whose rhetoric is tailor-made for an anti-establishment, anti-incumbent year. And every indication suggests that this is such a year. Even Nevada ’s Sharron Angle, running against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is maintaining poll numbers that suggest she actually could win. Two recent Nevada polls aggregated by the nonpartisan Clarus Research Group had Reid ahead by only two percentage points.

The second question is, where did this movement come from? What precisely were the impulses, angers and fears that spawned this seemingly spontaneous wave of civic energy? Of course, like all civic movements, the Tea Party represents a pastiche of various political sentiments and outlooks. Many of them smack of the standard right-wing fare that has been driving many elements of the Republican Party for years — anger over social issues such as abortion and gay marriage, an aversion to the popular culture, the general sense of a remote and self-absorbed Washington .

But most Tea Party leaders emphasize three general principles. The first is “fiscal responsibility,” which includes a strong aversion to huge federal deficits and the yawning national debt. This element also includes an attack on federal policies that constrict the economic freedom of citizens through excessive taxation. The second principle is “constitutionally limited government,” which implies states’ rights and the protection of individual liberties from federal intrusion. And the third is “free markets,” seen by Tea Party adherents as the protection of intertwined “individual and economic liberty.”

In short, the Tea Party outlook is part of a long tradition in American politics. It harkens back to the politics of Andrew Jackson during his battles with Henry Clay. Both the Jackson and Clay traditions have reverberated through American politics for nearly 200 years. Clay and his followers wanted to consolidate greater political and economic power in Washington so it could be wielded on behalf of federal public works such as roads, bridges and canals. Jackson ’s hallmark principles, on the other hand, were limited government and strict construction of the Constitution, both of which animate today’s Tea Party. The movement also harkens back to the more recent politics of Ronald Reagan, who echoed Jackson ’s call for smaller government and strict construction of constitutional powers.

The third question centers on how the Tea Party will influence American politics in the coming years. It would seem that the movement is in part a response to the policies of President Obama, who has sought to bring about the greatest consolidation of federal power since Lyndon B. Johnson in the 1960s. Hence, it can be predicted that the movement will throw whatever political weight it can muster against Obama when he faces re-election in 2012.

But the real battle now is against the Republican Party, which didn’t exactly embrace Tea Party principles when George W. Bush was president. Indeed, much of the flow of American politics that angers Tea Party adherents — increased federal spending, growing deficits, Washington’s earmark culture, the looming entitlement crises — were in full force during the Bush years. That’s why Tea Party adherents are so bent on busting up the Washington establishment by first busting up the GOP. In that sense, they resemble the Goldwater insurgency that took over the Republican Party in 1964 as a means of later taking over the country. That intraparty strategy differed from the later independent party rebellions of Wallace and Perot, but the political principles surrounding insurgency politics remain the same.

As for today’s Tea Party partisans, they don’t trust Washington, which they see as a place of mutual back-scratching, earmark collaborations, power grabs and what seems like unlimited amounts of money sloshing around for buying votes and for the personal aggrandizement of elected officeholders and their minions. The Tea Party aim is to attack that political establishment by capturing the forces of the Republican Party and then directing those forces against the perceived entrenched power of Washington .

Will it succeed? Not clear. But it is clear that this political phenomenon, which burst upon the scene so unexpectedly and has rumbled along with such force the past year and a half, isn’t going away anytime soon. It will continue to wreak havoc in the precincts of establishment politics until this establishment finds a way to siphon off a big portion of Tea Party anger with a brand of politics that absorbs at least some of its sentiment. History suggests there is no other way to tame this beast.

Flight 297 - Islamic Terror Rehearsal: What Really Happened

Received this from a friend. Thought everyone would like to read it.

I, Gene Hackemack, received this email from my good friend Tedd Petruna, a diver at the NBL facility [Neutral Buoyancy Lab], at NASA Houston, whom I used to work with. Tedd happened to be on this same Flt. 297, Atlanta to Houston (that these 11 adults Muslim males were on, which received National attention due to the commotion they caused and ultimately a cancelled flight).

In my opinion, the muslims are all getting very brave now, since they have one of their own in the white Tedd's story below.

Semper Fi

Gene Hackemack

PS...can you imagine, our own news media now are so politically correct that they are afraid to report that these were all muslims...unbelievable. Thank God for people like Tedd Petruna.

A. Gene Hackemack
Brenham TX 77833

E-Mail from Tedd Petruna:

One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday, November the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen a blurb where a AirTran flight was cancelled from Atlanta to Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before take off. It was on Fox.

This was NOT what happened.

I was in 1st class coming home. 11 Muslim men got on the plane in full attire. 2 sat in 1st class and the rest peppered themselves throughout the plane all the way to the back. As the plane taxied to the runway the stewardesses gave the safety spiel we are all so familiar with. At that time, one of the men got on his cell and called one of his companions in the back and proceeded to talk on the phone in Arabic very loudly and very aggressively. This took the 1st stewardess out of the picture for she repeatedly told the man that cell phones were not permitted at the time. He ignored her as if she was not there.

The 2nd man who answered the phone did the same and this took out the 2nd stewardess. In the back of the plane at this time, 2 younger Muslims, one in the back aisle, and one in front of him, window, began to show footage of a porno they had taped the night before, and were very loud about it. Now..they are only permitted to do this prior to Jihad. If a Muslim man goes into a strip club, he has to view the woman via mirror with his back to her. (don't ask me..I don't make the rules, but I've studied) The 3rd stewardess informed them that they were not to have electronic devices on at this time. To which one of the men said "shut up infidel dog!" She went to take the camcorder and he began to scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all 11 of them got up and started to walk the cabin. This is where I had had enough! I got up and started to the back where I heard a voice behind me from another Texan twice my size say "I got your back." I grabbed the man who had been on the phone by the arm and said "you WILL go sit down or you Will be thrown from this plane!" As I "led" him around me to take his seat, the fellow Texan grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed out with him. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, "You WILL do the same!" He protested but adrenaline was flowing now and he was going to go. As I escorted him forward the plane doors open and 3 TSA agents and 4 police officers entered. Me and my new Texan friend were told to cease and desist for they had this under control. I was happy to oblige actually. There was some commotion in the back, but within moments, all 11 were escorted off the plane. They then unloaded their luggage.

We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happened, when suddenly, the door opens again and on walked all 11!! Stone faced, eyes front and robotic (the only way I can describe it). The stewardess from the back had been in tears and when she saw this, she was having NONE of it! Being that I was up front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agent there was NO WAY she was staying on the plane with these men. The agent told her they had searched them and were going to go through their luggage with a fine tooth comb and that they were allowed to proceed to Houston . The captain and co-captain came out and told the agent "we and our crew will not fly this plane!" After a word or two, the entire crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. 5 minutes later, the cabin door opened again and a whole new crew walked on.

Again...this is where I had had enough!!! I got up and asked "What the hell is going on!?!?" I was told to take my seat. They were sorry for the delay and I would be home shortly. I said "I'm getting off this plane". The stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off. (now I'm mad!) I said "I am a grown man who bought this ticket, whose time is mine with a family at home and I am going through that door, or I'm going through that door with you under my arm!! But I am going through that door!!" And I heard a voice behind me say "so am I". Then everyone behind us started to get up and say the same. Within 2 minutes, I was walking off that plane where I was met with more agents who asked me to write a statement. I had 5 hours to kill at this point so why the hell not. Due to the amount of people who got off that flight, it was cancelled. I was supposed to be in Houston at 6pm. I got here at 12:30am.

Look up the date. Flight #297 Atlanta to Houston .

If this wasn't a dry run, I don't know what one is. The terrorists wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it.

I'm telling this to you because I want you to know..

The threat is real. I saw it with my own eyes..

Boy I Sure Miss former President and Laura Bush - What a Class Act They Are

This is making it's way around the internet,..everyone needs to see it.

USO has a wonderful program where troop planes are met by volunteers--has been going on for years. Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, made a surprise visit to U.S. troops this afternoon.

They showed up at the USO in the Dallas - Fort Worth airport. There they mingled with the returning soldiers, thanked them, chatted and posed for photos as proof of the unexpected encounter for folks back home.

The USO just posted an assortment of the photos on its Facebook page, which quickly drew a growing list of appreciative comments.

"What an AWESOME moment," Robert Rowe wrote. "If anyone can't see the President and First Lady's love for our nations troops, they must be dead or blind. May God Bless them ALL !" Richard Cruz wrote: "The look on that kid's face says it all...."

And Shirley Lovely Fry added: "A President and First Lady who love their country and their country's military."

Here are some photos from August 11, 2010 taken at the D-FW International Airport .

And then God Created Texas...

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.

He inquired, "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."

God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"That's Texas, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from Texas are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

God smiled, "I will create Washington, D.C. Wait till you see the idiots I put there."

What People Are Think About Illegal Immigration - Letters to the Editor

A buddy sent me these letters to the Editor of a Newspaper that were recently published, showing what people are thinking.

Nation of citizens

I'm tired of hearing that America is a nation of immigrants. According to Wikipedia, as of 2009, only 13 percent of our population was foreign-born.

That means that almost 90 percent are native-born.

Yes, America was founded by immigrants 200 years ago. As America grew, so did the need for immigration laws. Yes, many came here before immigration laws existed.

But the obvious need for the citizens to be protected from criminals and the diseased, and institutions from being overwhelmed, brought about these just laws.

America is a nation of citizens. We are a nation of citizens who expect our government to do its main function, protecting our rights as citizens.

Keep standards the same for all

I'm an American citizen and must show ID when:

1. Stopped by law enforcement officers.

2. Making purchases on any department store card.

3. Doctor's visit.

4. When filling out a credit card or loan request.

5. When renewing my driver's license.

6. When applying for any kind of insurance.

7. When filling out college applications.

8. When donating blood.

9. When buying an air fare.

I'm sure there are more instances. The point is that we, as U.S. citizens, are required by law to prove who we are nearly every day.

Why should undocumented immigrants, in this country illegally, be exempt? What makes them so special?

I served two tours of duty in Nam , was wounded and almost died for my country. Why shouldn't we guard our borders as closely as any other nation in the world does?

Go Arizona !

Illegal Immigration

Mexico’s President says the Arizona Immigration Law is a violation of human rights. Compared to Mexican immigration laws it is a walk in the park.

Mexico’s Law mandates that Federal, State and Local Policia cooperate with Federal Immigration Authorities for the arrest of illegal immigrants. In Mexico , it’s a felony to be an illegal immigrant, punishable up to 2 tears in prison. If you re-enter, then it’s a 10 year prison term.

Citizens who help illegal immigrants are considerable criminals.

So whose law is really a heavier toll on humans rights? Calderon is an idiot.

Tough Like Chuck - Trigger the Vote

Chuck Norris, an American Patriot, known for his action movies where the good guy always wins, is partnering with the National Rifle Association on a campaign to get conservatives out to vote. YOU DO NOT WANT TO LET CHUCK NORRIS DOWN. Get out the Vote!! 50 days until victory!

Balanced Budget Amendment Movement

I have not yet made a decision to join this cause or not. On the face of it, I support it, but I remember hearing Mark Levin, a radio talk show host and a Constitutional Scholar talking against a Balanced Budget Law as being unnecessarily restrictive and a detriment the Republic..... and I highly respect Mark Levin. I am however in favor of the Government stopping unnecessary and ridiculous spending. I'll post this article, on The National BBA Coalition Campaign, and let readers decide for themselves as I look into it further.

Please take a minute to learn why we are undertaking the BBA campaign.
America faces a threat from within that endangers our way of life - the government's excessive spending deficits and debt. The answer to this problem is a constitutional Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) that will require the government to balance its budget every year without raising taxes.

Currently we are building support for the concept of a Balanced Budget Amendment, and with enough support, we will take our demand for a BBA to the halls of Congress next year.

If you truly believe in the power of grassroots to restore America's greatness, please pass this email along to 10 friends or family members who believe the time has come to permanently stop those we send to represent us in Washington from spending away our childrens' future. Also, please join us on Facebook and Twitter. Together, we will make a difference. We look forward to building this BBA campaign with you.

Privacy is important to us. Therefore, we will not sell, rent, or give your name or address to anyone. At any point, you can follow the bottom of every email to unsubscribe, or to receive less or more information.
Thank you again for joining us. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us.

Why The Democrats Must Go: Part II, by Michael Berry

This is Part 2 of Michael Berry's review the first twenty months of the Obama Administration. Refresh your memory on these issues, then vote the Democrats out of office. We can stop Obama's agenda by voting out the Democrats in Congress - then no more Majority Leader positions were they control all aspects of government. Tell your friends, register your friends, have your friend vote - this year's election is too important.

Too Late to Right The Sinking Ship?

This cartoon presents a very real fear of mine, that Conservatives take over Congress and this Country is too far gone, not just from Obama's Administration's incredibly negligent spending and stewardship, but from all past Administrations as well. It's not just me,....I hear smarter people than me on the radio and TV talking about their fear that we may have just gone too far to correct the path.

I could draw analogies to the Titanic,...but I think I'll just let the cartoon above speak to the issue. The damn thing is, is that there will be no reckoning other than getting defeated in an election for all those mutts who let this Country get the way it is, with more debt raking up the past 20 months, than in the preceding 200 years!

Burning Korans is Just Plain Stupid

Don’t know about the readers of this site, but I think Pastor Terry Jones, know the guy who wants to burn Korans? Well, he’s an IDIOT.

How can you call yourself a Christian and a Christian Pastor at that, and what to burn another religion’s theological doctrine? Add the fact that Jones’ actions are stirring up a whole separate group of Idiots,…...namely uneducated Muslims in places as far away as Afghanistan and therefore placing service members at a greater risk, then you have to wonder his motivation.

I could care less about how Muslims feel about this country, but I don’t think unnecessarily insulting these mutts is a good tactical decision,…it just recruits more vest bombers for them.

The latest on Pastor Jone’s after claiming he had an agreement with Iman Rauf to not burn the Korans if the planned Ground Zero Mosque is moved someplace else.

Florida Pastor Terry Jones plans trip to NYC over Koran flap

"I am just a man who is trying to do what God has told us to do," he says

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — As thousands of Afghans protested a tiny Florida church's plan to burn the Muslim holy book, the church's pastor said on NBC's TODAY Show Friday that he won't follow through on the plan if he's able to meet Saturday with the organizers behind a mosque planned near ground zero in New York.

It wasn't clear if the Rev. Terry Jones meant the burning would be halted indefinitely or just for Saturday.

Imam Muhammad Musri, the president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida, told CBS TV's "The Early Show" he had a commitment for Jones and himself to meet in New York with the imam there. Later, NBC News reported that ABC's "Good Morning America" show would be flying Jones to New York for the meeting.

Jones said he has made contact with Musri. He has not made direct contact with Iman Faisal Abdul Rauf.

"No decision has been made to whether we will burn or not burn Qurans," he told NBC. "It is under serious conserideration, but at this this point no decision has been made."

On the TODAY show Friday morning, Jones blamed Musri for the confusion surrounding the Quran burning plan's status, and said he felt "lied to."

Earlier, Jones and Musri had disagreed sharply on the terms of the agreement.

Jones said Thursday he would call off the planned burning of Qurans based on a deal negotiated with the president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida that the location of a mosque planned near ground zero in New York would be changed.

But Musri said he was clear on Thursday when he told Jones that he could only set up a meeting with planners of the New York City mosque, whose leader said he had spoken to neither the pastor nor Musri. Jones responded by opening the door, if only a crack, that he would go forward with his plan on Saturday.

"We are just really shocked," Jones said of Musri. "He clearly, clearly lied to us."

Anti-Muslim rhetoric flares near 9/11 anniversary ..Jones' church, which has about 50 members, is independent of any denomination. It follows the pentecostal tradition, which teaches that the Holy Spirit can manifest itself in the modern day.

Meanwhile, one protester was shot dead and at least 11 wounded outside a German-run NATO base in northeast Afghanistan Friday. Demonstrations later spread to the capital, Kabul , and at least four other provinces.

Asked if he feels responsible for the shooting death of a protestor in Afghanistan Friday, Jones said his church did not pull the trigger, and that the incident "reveals the true nature of Islam."

Jones said he and his followers do not condone violence and that they were surprised by the level of anger. He said radical islam is more dangerous than even church members ever thought.

“I am just a man who is trying to do what god has told us to do,” he said.

Iman Rouf Predicts Backlash from Mosque Controversy

From Yahoo! News, reporting that Imam Rauf fears moving the NYC mosque could inflame tension among Muslim and create a violent backlash.

EXCUSE MEEEEEEEEE! How dare Iman Rauf cautioning America that moving the infamous New York Mosque would create a violence backlash among Muslims. His very statement can inflame tensions and serve as a suggestion for Muslims to protest and commit violence.

NEW YORK – The Imam behind a proposed Islamic community center and mosque near ground zero cautioned Wednesday that moving the facility could cause a violent backlash from Muslim extremists and endanger national security.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf told CNN that the discourse surrounding the center has become so politicized that moving it could strengthen the ability of extremists abroad to recruit and wage attacks against Americans, including troops fighting in the Middle East .

"The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack," he said, but he added that he was open to the idea of moving the planned location of the center, currently two blocks north of the World Trade Center site.

"But if you don't do this right, anger will explode in the Muslim world," he later said, predicting that the reaction could be more furious than the eruption of violence following the 2005 publication of Danish cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

Opponents say the center, which would include a Sept. 11 memorial and a Muslim prayer space, should be moved farther away from where Islamic extremists destroyed the World Trade Center and killed nearly 2,800 people. Supporters say religious freedom should be protected.

Rauf, 61, has largely been absent since the debate over the center erupted earlier this year. He has been traveling abroad, including taking a State Department-funded 15-day trip to the Middle East to promote religious tolerance.

In the interview with CNN's Soledad O'Brien, his first since returning to the U.S. on Sunday, Rauf responded to a number of questions that have been raised about the project.

He said money to develop the center would be raised domestically for the most part.

"And we'll be very transparent on how we raise money," he said, adding that no funds would be accepted from sources linked to extremists.

Rauf said that, in retrospect, he might have chosen a different location for what he described as a multifaith community center.

"If I knew this would happen, if it would cause this kind of pain, I wouldn't have done it," he said.

Islam is not a Religion, it is a Foreign Law

Interesting Read from JR Dieckman, Canada Free Press

The time has come to question if Islam is protected under our First Amendment rights to freedom of religion. Yes, everyone in America has the right to freedom of religion, but Islam is not a religion. Religious faith is only a part of Islam. The rest is a socially engineered society with its own laws and customs that seriously conflict with American law.

Is Great Britain a religion because they have the Church of England? Of course not! Britain has an established charter, civil and criminal laws, and a society that respects those laws. Islam has the Qur’an that provides the governing charter, complete with laws, punishment, and social behavior for its people in addition to its religious teachings. If Islam is a religion, then Britain is also.

We must recognize that religion is only one aspect of Islam‘s Qur’an. The rest of this charter advances ideas, social behavior, and laws that are in direct conflict with American and western laws and values. Teddy Roosevelt once said that to live in America, immigrants must have undivided loyalty to America and to no one else. How is that possible for Muslims who swear loyalty to Islam where their governing laws are found in the Qur‘an?

What legitimate religion would demand that its members either kill or convert people of other faiths? What legitimate religion is intent on imposing its own laws on the rest of the entire world? If Islam were just about praying to Allah and worshiping Mohammed and nothing more, we would not be having a problem with Islamism and Islamic terrorists. Islam has a global mission to take over and run the world according to Islamic Shariah law. How can we call that a religion?

What legitimate religion in this country comes with its own civil laws that take precedence over national, state, and local laws? No, Islam is not a religion. It is a governing doctrine that not only dictates religious beliefs, but also social behavior that includes laws, penalties and punishments, not by God, but by people if the laws are not obeyed. Islam is a form of government, not a religion. It does not belong here. We already have government under our Constitution (sort of).

As Muslims build their mega-Mosques in our nation - financed by Saudi Arabia - they laugh at the stupid Americans who are selling out their fellow citizens by allowing Islam to take over our country a little bit at a time. It is the same method used over decades by the Marxist Progressives who now have control of our government - take away our liberties one little piece at a time until full control and submission is achieved.

We are extending a welcoming hand to the enemy of our country and western culture under the pretense of religious freedom

Islamists know they cannot destroy us militarily, but they also know that they can do it with political correctness and insisting that we respect their freedom of religion, even though they have no respect for ours. We are extending a welcoming hand to the enemy of our country and western culture under the pretense of religious freedom.

What religion recruits killers and terrorists in their place of worship, then sends them off to foreign training grounds to become proficient at mass murder? I know of only one. They are taught to kill in the name of God, but this is not the law of God who commanded “thou shall not kill” - it is the law of Mohammed who commanded “kill them all who will not convert.”

The Qur’an blurs the lines between religion and government and teaches that Islamic government is God’s law

The Qur’an blurs the lines between religion and government and teaches that Islamic government is God’s law. It certainly is not. Why do we tolerate this abomination in America where our laws maintain a separation between church and state? To accept Islam in America is to accept Islamic law as well.

Are we out of our minds? Did anyone notice that we are at war with these people? Terrorists feed on the same rulebook as other Muslims who have so far remained peaceful. Will they be making the same decision that Barack Obama made when he wrote in “Dreams Of My Father” - “When the political winds shift in an ugly direction, I will side with the Muslims?” It is always nice to know that our president is on our side when America goes to war. Too bad this one is not.

L.A. now sides with Mexico and Mexican Nationals over the legal citizens of this country.

The same thing is happening in the southern Border States where Mexicans are taking over cities one by one. You need look no further than the Los Angeles boycott of Arizona to realize that the city government in L.A. now sides with Mexico and Mexican Nationals over the legal citizens of this country.

The strong Democratic population has even elected a Mexican mayor to run the city, and half of the city council members have Mexican surnames, as do many in the California state legislature. Although most of these legislators were born here in America , their loyalties seem to lie more with Mexico and Mexican citizens who are now invading our state along with other Border States.

These people of Mecha and La Raza believe this land is rightfully theirs and they intend to govern it for their people. Any objections are met with charges of racism aimed at Americans who simply want to preserve the American language, culture, values, and way of life. Los Angeles has changed a great deal since this invasion began and many American have moved out to find a new homeland.

What are we going to do when we see the same thing happening in the federal government? What are we going to do when Muslims demand that the United States respect and enforce Shariah law? They are already doing it in England and other European countries. It is only a short time before we see it here too. Shariah is already creeping into the courts and local laws in some states.

Is that the kind of country we want? Or do we want the country that our founders created? I have no problem with Muslims living in Islamic countries overseas where they can have the kind of society they desire, as long as they leave us alone and free to enjoy the kind of society that we desire. The two cannot be reconciled into one united society any more than capitalists can unite with communists. It must be one or the other.

Some people think we should be bending over backwards to make nice with Muslims and make sure they feel welcome in our country because that is what America is all about, they say. Immigrants built America , they say. To an extent, this is true if we are talking about the immigrants who migrated here to become Americans and help to build this great country over 200 years ago.

Today we have way too many foreigners coming to America not to become Americans, but instead to change America . They want to dominate instead of assimilate. They want us to accept their culture instead of them accepting our culture and becoming productive members of it.

Are you tired of being called “an immigrant” right here in your home country? I know I am. “ America is a nation of immigrants,” they say. Let me state this for the record. I am not an immigrant, I am a natural born American. My parents were born here. My grandparents and great grandparents were born here. How many others in this country have the same family history? How many people reading this have known no other flag than the American flag?

We are not immigrants, we are Americans - and America is a nation of Americans - not a nation of immigrants. How much longer will we be able to call ourselves “Americans” with foreign cultures and emphases on diversity encroaching on our country? People naturally gravitate toward their own kind, not because they are racists, but because they seek the company of others with whom they have things in common.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to relate to people here in Los Angeles who don’t even speak our language. This creates an atmosphere of mistrust, resentment and hostility when we see our city being taking over by foreign invaders. Now we have to lock our doors both at home and in our cars.

When America was being built, most everyone was an immigrant - from Europe. That was over 200 years ago. We still welcome immigrants who want to become a part of America and become American - but where do we draw the line between welcoming friends and embracing our enemies? Obviously, to those running our government, there is no line thanks largely to Ted Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and a Congress full of Democrats when they passed The Hart-Celler Act of 1965.

“The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs,” Kennedy said. Oh really?

If Muslims want to live and work in America and worship their prophet and God, that is not a problem. But when they try to go beyond their own personal worship and demand that we change our society to accommodate them, then that is where we need to draw the line. It is not we who should change, it is they. Just like people migrating from Mexico, they need to discard their old country ways, adapt to America, assimilate into our society, and become Americans.

Muslim worship is protected under the First Amendment, Islamic law is not

Muslim worship is protected under the First Amendment, Islamic law is not. Until Muslims - and our own government - can accept that, then Islam cannot be considered a religion and Islamic culture does not belong here in America.

Separation of Church and State??

All people who can read or can think straight know there is no phrase in the Constitution mandating a separation of Church and State,...nor was there any intent to do so. The only intent,...again, the only intent was freedom of religion and freedom of worship, and, to limit government so they could not declare a state or National religion.

Look at this video of David Barton conducting a tour of the Capitol and it's early links to Christianity. Kinda blows the lids of the liberal progressive propanganda about "Separation of Church and State".

Thanks SaddleBum44.

What the Brits Think About Obama

One of the Liberal mantra's has been that the previous Bush administration failed to build rapport and maintain good relations with the rest of the world. Alot of the World may not have liked George Bush, but they could predict his behavior based on his character. With Obama, not only apologizing all over the Middle East, the rest of World thinks he is weak, has no character that you can count on other than to Socialize the U.S. culture. This article depicts what the Brits think about Obama.

From the LONDON DAILY TELEGRAPH, by Daily Telegraph editor, Alex Singleton

This is a very sobering article. Our handling of relationships with the Britons over the oil spill won't help either.

From The London Daily Telegraph Editor On Foreign Relations.

Quote: "Let me be clear: I'm not normally in favor of boycotts, and I love the American people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States. But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to stop Obama's reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on his allies on every issue."

One of the most poorly kept secrets in Washington is President Obama's animosity toward Great Britain , presumably because of what he regards as its sins while ruling Kenya (1895-1963).

One of Barack Hussein Obama's first acts as president was to return to Britain a bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office since 9/11. He followed this up by denying Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on his first state visit, the usual joint press conference with flags.

The president was "too tired" to grant the leader of America's closest ally a proper welcome, his aides told British journalists.

Mr. Obama followed this up with cheesy gifts for Mr. Brown and the Queen. Columnist Ian Martin described his behavior as "rudeness personified. " There was more rudeness in store for Mr. Brown at the opening session of the United Nations in September. "The prime minister was forced to dash through the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure five minutes of face time with President Obama after five requests for a sit down meeting were rejected by the White House," said London Telegraph columnist David Hughes. Mr. Obama's "churlishness is unforgivable," Mr. Hughes said.

The administration went beyond snubs and slights last week when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton endorsed the demand of Argentine President Cristina Kirchner, a Hugo Chavez ally, for mediation of Argentina 's specious claim to the Falkland Islands , a British dependency since 1833. The people who live in the Falklands, who speak English, want nothing to do with Argentina . When, in 1982, an earlier Argentine dictatorship tried to seize the Falklands by force, the British -- with strong support from President Ronald Reagan -- expelled them.

"It is truly shocking that Barack Obama has decided to disregard our shared history," wrote Telegraph columnist Toby Young. "Does Britain 's friendship really mean so little to him?" One could ask, does the friendship of anyone in the entire world mean anything to him?

"I recently asked several senior administration officials, separately, to name a foreign leader with whom Barack Obama has forged a strong personal relationship during his first year in office," wrote Jackson Diehl, deputy editorial page editor of the Washington Post, on Monday. "A lot of hemming and hawing ensued." One official named French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but his contempt for Mr. Obama is an open secret. Another named German Chancellor Angela Merkel. But, said Mr. Diehl, "Merkel too has been conspicuously cool toward Obama."

Mr. Obama certainly doesn't care about the Poles and Czechs, whom he has betrayed on missile defense. Honduras and Israel also can attest that he's been an unreliable ally and an unfaithful friend. Ironically, our relations with both Israel and the Palestinian Authority have never been worse. Russia has offered nothing in exchange for Mr. Obama's abandonment of missile defense. Russia and China won't support serious sanctions on Iran. Syria 's support for terrorism has not diminished despite efforts to normalize diplomatic relations. The reclusive military dictatorship that runs Burma has responded to our efforts at "engagement" by deepening its ties to North Korea. And the Chinese make little effort to disguise their contempt for him.

For the first time in a long time, the President of the United States is actually distrusted by its allies and not in the least feared by its adversaries. Nor is Mr. Obama now respected by the majority of Americans. Understandably focused on the dismal economy and Mr. Obama's relentless efforts to nationalize and socialize health care, Americans apparently have yet to notice his dismal performance and lack of respect in the world community.

They soon will.
