Do you still think border security should be on the Governmental back-burner?

Restoration, Not Transformation

You Worry Me Too! And There's Nothing Wrong With Saying It, Or Feeling It! Don't Stop Noticing... And Don't Forget!

This was obviously written years ago, but given recnet events, wouldn't you say it still rings true?

'YOU WORRY ME!' By American Airlines Pilot - Captain John Maniscalco

 I've been trying to say this since 911, but you worry me. I wish you didn't. I wish when I walked down the streets of this country that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country. But you don't blend in anymore. I notice you, and it worries me. I notice you because I can't help it anymore. People from your homelands, professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now. I don't fully understand their grievances and hate, but I know that nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.

On September 11, ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my country. They cut the throats of women in front of children and brutally stabbed to death others. They took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings killing thousands of proud fathers, loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public servants, and children's mothers. The Palestinians celebrated, the Iraqis were overjoyed as was  most of the Arab world. So, I notice you now. I don't want to be worried. I don't want to be consumed by the same rage and hate and prejudice that has destroyed the soul of these terrorists But I need your help. As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terroris.t How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim Americans and the Arab/Muslim terrorists in our communities who are attending our schools, enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under the
 protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack that  will slaughter these same good neighbors and children.

The events of September 11th changed the answer. It is not my responsibility to determine which of you embraces our great country,  with ALL of its religions, with ALL of its different citizens, with all of  its faults. It is time for every Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me. I want to know, I demand to know, and I have a right to know, whether or not you love America. Do you pledge allegiance to its flag? Do you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car? Do you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this nation, that He will protect and prosper it? Or do you pray that Allah with destroy it in one of your Jihad's? Are you thankful for the freedom that only this nation affords? A freedom that was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots who gave their lives for this country?

Are you willing to preserve this freedom by also paying the ultimate sacrifice? Do you love America ? If this is your commitment, then I  need YOU to start letting ME know about it. Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions you are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the United States of America. Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of  the innocent because I worry about who you regard as innocent. No more benign overtures of condemnation for the unprovoked attacks because I worry about what is unprovoked to you. I am not interested in any more sympathy. I am only interested in action. What will you do for America - our great country - at this time of crisis, at this time of war?

I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN flag in the streets. I want to hear you chanting 'Allah Bless America ' I want to see young Arab/Muslim men enlisting in the military. I want to see a commitment of money, time, and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to this nation as a whole.

The FBI has a list of over 400 people they want to talk to regarding the WTC attack. Many of these people live and socialize right now in Muslim communities. You know them. You know where they are. Hand them over to us, now! But I have seen little even approaching this sort of action. Instead I have seen  an already closed and secretive community close even tighter. You have disappeared from the streets. You have posted armed security guards at your facilities. You have threatened lawsuits. You have screamed for protection from reprisals.

The very few Arab/Muslim representatives that HAVE appeared in the media were defensive and equivocating. They seemed more concerned with making sure that the United States proves who was responsible before taking action. They seemed more concerned with protecting their fellow Muslims from violence directed towards them in the United States and abroad than they did with supporting our country and denouncing 'leaders' like Khadafi, Hussein, Farrakhan, and Arafat.

If the true teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and love for all people, then I want chapter and verse from the Koran and statements from popular Muslim leaders to back it up. What good is it  if the teachings in the Koran are good, and pure, and true, when your 'leaders' are teaching fanatical interpretations, terrorism, and intolerance? It matters little how good Islam SHOULD BE if huge numbers of the world's Muslims interpret the teachings of Mohammed incorrectly and adhere to a degenerative form of the religion. A form that has been demonstrated to us over and over again. A form whose structure is built upon a foundation of violence, death, and suicide. A form whose members are recruited from the prisons around the world. A form whose members (some as young as five years old) are seen day after day, week in and week out, year after year, marching in the streets around the world, burning effigies of our presidents, burning the American flag, shooting weapons into the air. A form whose members convert from a peaceful religion, only to take up arms against the great United States of America, the country of their birth. A form whose rules are so twisted, that their traveling members refuse to show their faces at airport security checkpoints, in the name of Islam.

We will NEVER allow the attacks of September 11, or any others for that matter, to take away that which is so precious to us: Our rights under the greatest constitution in the world. I want to know where every Arab Muslim in this country stands and I think it is my right and the right of every true citizen of this country to demand it. A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers and sisters who died protecting the very constitution that is protecting you and your family. I am pleading with you to let me know. I want you here as my brother, my neighbor, my friend, as a fellow American. But there can be no gray areas or ambivalence regarding your allegiance, and it is up to YOU, to show ME, where YOU stand. Until then.


The Solution? Restoration!

Come On, This Doesn't Infuriate You?

Warning! You are about to read the U.S. Constitution
By Bobby Eberle June 10, 2010 7:13 AM - Found on The Loft

Everyone knows that political correctness has gone too far. Prepare a lesson for a class of 20, and if one student is offended, the lesson is canceled for the other 19. Construct a manger scene in public, and face "outrage" from the governing elite. The list goes on and on. But now, a publishing company has taken the absurd a step further by putting a warning label on their publications of historical documents such as the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. Is reading the Constitution now hazardous to our health?

As noted in a story on FoxNews.com, "Wilder Publications warns readers of its reprints of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, Common Sense, the Articles of Confederation, and the Federalist Papers, among others, that 'This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today.'" Check out the disclaimer below:

This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today.

That disclaimer was taken from Wilder's copy of "The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, and The Articles of Confederation." The question to ask is why is this disclaimer even needed? Is the company so afraid of offending someone with the Constitution that it has to put up a warning?

One Amazon.com reviewer hit the nail on the head by writing:

Really we need to have a disclaimer on our historic documents? The constitution is more important now than any other time in our nations history. I will check every book I purchase and ensure it is not published by Wilder Publications until they stop printing the constitution with a disclaimer.

I agree. These documents form the basis of our country. The Constitution, AS WRITTEN, is the law of the land. (Or at least it should be.)

Political correctness is out of control, and this example should really drive that point home. How about getting back to actually teaching American history and getting kids to thoroughly understand the Constitution? We'd all be in a much better place if we did.

What Will You Do When (Not If) Jihad Comes To America?

Not only is our government working hard to thwart the wishes of the American people, but world events are rapidly spiralling out of control. Are you concerned about your future, or your families future, at all? Do you feel any responsibility to future generations?

Here's an article from 2005. Islam continues to spread throughout the globe, and with it anti-Israel and Anti- American sentiment. Europe is lost. Greece, Italy, England, France, Spain, Portugal; the list goes on and on. In the Middle-East Islamists in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and other countries are actively combative. In Africa, you have a multitude of countries where Islamic influence and indoctrination prevail. And in America you have Islamic "compounds" secured against government and/or non-islamic citizens being constructed throughout the country. One such compound is in upstate NY. Jihadists have infiltrated our military. Don't you think they've probably infiltrated our police forces and local/state (and perhaps Federal) government structures as well? If not, don't you see that happening in the next couple of decades?


So what will you do when Islamic Jihad comes to America? Will the government have so stealthily succeeded in diminishing our ability to defend against that threat? Here's a link to a message from Senator Cornyn from this week...

The Sad State Of Affairs

I have concluded, based on my interaction with people whom I consider well educated, that there are not enough Americans concerned enough with the political events ruining this country, or the history of the progressive evolution (revolution?) of the past 100 years and their utter destruction of historical fact to serve their ends, to save America. I truly fear that when those on our side realize with certainty that the Constitution, as it was intended and created by our Founders, is dead there will be no recourse but to either accept that fact and live as "slaves" to the government, or fight (literally) passionately to resurrect it. I can't see us in the acceptance mode...

So the question then becomes, what will be the catalyst that sparks this nation to action? It hasn't been the fact that a sitting President identifies more with terrorist states and their leadership, than he does with long-standing allies. It hasn't been the fact that a sitting president openly disrespects a huge segment of the population when he admonishes them with the "mess" he "inherited" and demands that we shut up, sit down and get out of his way so he can clean it up! It hasn't been the fact that despite the disapproval of the majority of the country, this administration and this Congress forced healthcare down the throat of America, It hasn't been the fact that the government has abandoned it's role and responsibility to secure our borders, and when the state of Arizona took matters into it's own hands they were ridiculed and dismissed as racists. It hasn't been the fact that Obama will not release any personal information - college transcripts, birth certificate, etc . Whatever happened to his pledge of transparency? Oh yeah, that's just one of his talking points that the ill-informed lemmings on the left absorb as fact, though there is no proof that can be cited to back it up. Will it be the attempted destruction of Israel? An attack on South Korea? The destruction of the Euro? A global economic meltdown? Or something else entirely?

The day of reckoning is coming. I don't know if it will occur in the next 5 years, 10, 20 or 50, but it is coming. The course we are on is not a sustainable course, nor is it a course the majority of caring Americans will be comfortable with. And I would bet that those who don't have the time to care now, will certainly care when liberty is no longer the priority of the day. Read your history folks - if you can still find it. The whirlwind is coming...

Inspiration Of Our Founders; Read Thoroughly...

Alexander's Essay – June 3, 2010

'There is a Time to Fight'

"I am not influenced by the expectation of promotion or pecuniary reward. I wish to be useful, and every kind of service necessary for the public good, become honorable by being necessary." --Nathan Hale

"...that time has now come."Over the just passed Memorial Day, Patriots across the Fruited Plain paused to reflect upon the ultimate sacrifice made by so many of our uniformed Patriots in honor of their sacred oaths.

This Saturday, we pause again, to remember the sixth anniversary of Ronald Reagan's death, and to take account of his legacy.

Four weeks hence, Patriots will reflect upon the immense sacrifices, in both blood and treasure, that were spilt in creation of the United States of America, the greatest experiment in human history.

By uniting these days of reflection with Essential Education, a most vital part of The Patriot's mission, Patriots have the foundation required to understand truly the terrific cost of our Essential Liberty.

While reflection and education are vital to understanding the history of liberty and how to sustain it, united, continual and forceful action must be undertaken to restore constitutional Rule of Law.

In the words of Samuel Adams, "Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it."

With one third of all state primaries completed, let's take account of our actions to date, and the results.

Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania frightened then-Republican Senator Arlen Specter into switching party affiliations to Democrat, his original party affiliation before 1965. The Ghost was then handily busted in the recent Pennsylvania Democrat primary. Toomey now faces a tough battle in the general election.

Doug Hoffman in New York almost won a special House election by running under a well-organized third-party banner (most third parties are not well organized and, therefore, lose decisively) but lost after the leftist Republican establishment candidate suspended her campaign and endorsed the Democrat.

Chris Christie in New Jersey defeated the well-financed Democrat incumbent to become the 55th governor of the usually solidly Democrat Garden State.

Bob McDonnell became the 71st governor of Virginia in a landslide 18-point victory -- in a state Barack Obama had carried by seven points just a year earlier.
Scott Brown became the first Republican since 1972 to be elected to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts. (Unfortunately, Brown ran to the right to win election, but has not consistently followed through now that he's in office.)

Marco Rubio in Florida so alarmed sitting governor Charlie Crist in the Republican senate primary that Crist became an independent candidate. Rubio now faces a difficult three-way race in the general election.

Spendthrift Senator Bob Bennett (R-UT), in office since 1992 and member of the all-powerful Senate Committee on Appropriations, was soundly defeated in the recent Utah Republican caucus.

Rand Paul in Kentucky steamrolled his Republican establishment primary foe by championing constitutionally conservative ideals.

But as Thomas Jefferson wrote, "The boisterous sea of liberty is never without a wave."
Indiana conservative Marlin Stutzman lost to the "moderate" Republican establishment candidate in the Hoosier primary.

Likewise, Arkansan advocate of constitutional ideals Jim Holt could not force a runoff election against the "moderate" Republican establishment candidate.

So while the list of outright and near-victories to date would be impressive for a typical election cycle, this is not a typical election cycle. These victories are neither deep enough nor complete enough to ensure restoration of constitutional Rule of Law.

Thus, we can neither rest upon our laurels nor trust to hope that the remainder of this election cycle will go well. Because the consequences are critical, we must not allow defeat of a single Rule of Law candidate.

George Washington wrote, "It should be the highest ambition of every American to extend his views beyond himself, and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself, his country, and his immediate posterity; but that its influence may be co-extensive with the world, and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn."
In the House of Representatives, Republicans, who currently control only 178 seats, will need to win a net 40 additional House races to obtain control and 112 races for a veto-proof majority.

In the Senate, Republicans currently control only 41 seats and will need to net 10 additional races to obtain control and 26 races for a veto-proof majority.

Of course, while it is safe to say that the overwhelming majority, if not all, of Democrat incumbents and candidates are anti-constitutional (a.k.a. "living constitutionalists"), it is also safe to say that not all Republicans are constitutional conservatives. Thus, the numbers for majorities listed above necessarily need be even larger to overcome the plague of "moderates," whose primary goals are to curry favor with the opposition to ensure perpetual re-election, rather than to fight forcefully for constitutional Rule of Law.

Veto-proof majorities must be the forthright objective of every Patriot who desires restoration of Rule of Law. Anything short of that will necessarily result, at best, in treading unconstitutional water for at least two more years or, at worst, further passage of the unconstitutional Obama agenda, in whole or in part, by a Congress under Republican control (see above lament on "moderates").

However, political victories require copious amounts of both money and manpower, a notion not lost on our Founding Fathers, who in the Declaration of Independence pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.
Resolve then today, this moment, to emulate the Founders: to act in unison, both continually and forcefully. For now is the time for all Patriot Americans to come to the aid of their country.

Incorporate this strategy from Thomas Jefferson: "If we move in mass, be it ever so circuitously, we shall attain our object; but if we break into squads, everyone pursuing the path he thinks most direct, we become an easy conquest to those who can now barely hold us in check."

Utilize the knowledge and wisdom of free organizations such as Club for Growth and Senate Conservatives Fund to support vetted constitutionally conservative candidates. Remember that even if those candidates don't live in your district, they will still represent your views in Congress.

Dedicate a significant portion of your income and wealth, above and beyond what you might already, to donate to Rule of Law candidates. Give until it hurts -- because the alternative will assuredly be far more painful.

Contact campaign managers to volunteer. If you cannot travel to where needed, then technology affords an opportunity to assist well-organized campaigns anywhere in the country.

Plan vacations around working for a candidate in another state or another part of your state. See the less-traveled America.

Make these opportunities "teachable moments" to expose your children to their awesome American heritage. Show them how the sacrifices of others afford them the opportunities to enjoy their lives and to show that their sacrifices will allow others the same. Remind them of John Adams writing to his wife, Abigail, "I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain."

Contribute in as many of the remaining state primaries (6/8: CA, IA, ME, MT, NV, NJ, ND, SC, SD, VA, AR runoff; 6/22: UT, MS runoff, NC runoff, SC runoff; 6/29: SD runoff; 7/13: AL runoff; 7/20: GA; 7/27: OK; 8/3: KS, MI, MO; 8/5: TN; 8/10: CO, CT, GA runoff; 8/17: WA, WY; 8/24: AK, AZ, FL, OK runoff; 8/28: LA; 9/14: DE, MD, MA, MN, NH, NY, RI, VT, WI; 9/18: HI; 10/2: LA runoff) as your convictions and resources permit.

Then, after the last primary that you work, pause to re-gather your strength and re-evaluate your position -- and get back in the saddle to rejoin the battle for candidates in the general election on 2 November.

It is time for tenacious resistance and rebellion against the current thrones of government. This is not a call for revolution but for restoration -- to undertake whatever measures are dictated by prudence and necessity to restore constitutional Rule of Law.

Patriots, this struggle is difficult. The odds of utter success are long. Then again, so it was also at the very founding of our nation. It will most certainly take more than one election cycle seat a Congress willing to restore Rule of Law, but reaffirm our commitment to that end we must.

Redouble your commitment to the principles of Essential Liberty and the restoration of constitutional Rule of Law outlined in The Patriot Declaration.

Educate others by distributing copies of the Essential Liberty pocket guide at political rallies and civic events such as club or association meetings, military or public service events and recognition ceremonies, etc.

Take heart, though, and implore God's blessing that we are on the side of Truth and Light. And know that it is our civic duty, the remembrance of our heritage, and the education of our posterity that calls us to act now; to act in unison, to act continually and forcefully.

Rest assured by these words from George Washington, "The consciousness of having discharged that duty which we owe to our country is superior to all other considerations."

Gird yourselves for the next five months; honor the sacrifices of our forebears with your own; and plow the fields for our posterity.

As Founder Joseph Warren said, "On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves."

And these enduring words from Peter Muhlenberg in 1776: "There is a time for all things, a time to preach and a time to pray, but those times have passed away. There is a time to fight, and that time has now come."

(Jim Cuffia, executive director of the Essential Liberty Project, contributed to this essay.)

The Restoration Of America; Get Involved!

Handling Of Gaza Flotilla Crisis Called A ‘Disgrace’ - Newsmax

For anyone who might read this from Israel, or of Israeli descent, or for anyone sympathetic to the injustice Israel is currently enduring through abusive world opinion, I want to led my voice in support of Benjamin Natanyahu and the Isreali people in general. Know that 'our' president does not speak for the majority of Americans, as his opinion polls consistently demonstrate. And remember that his tenure in office is fast approaching an end. Persevere in your integrity and honor; and know that for now perhaps, at least until a new president is elected in America, Israel may be the next best hope of real liberty. We, America, will be back; do not discard your old ally just yet. In the meantime, God be with you...

Here's the article from Newsmax:

 The Obama administration reached “a new low” in dealing with Israel’s interception of a flotilla of ships seeking to deliver aid to Hamas-run Gaza, according to an op-ed piece in National Review.

Israel, which is blockading Gaza to prevent weapons smuggling, boarded six ships in international waters on May 31 to determine if the pro-Palestinian activists aboard were carrying weapons to Gaza. Gunfire erupted reportedly as Israeli commandos came under attack on a Turkish vessel.

But President Obama “has blessed the [activists’] project with success,” writes syndicated columnist Mona Charen in an article appearing on National Review’s website.

He signaled his support, according to Charen, “by declaring through Secretary of State Clinton that the blockade of Gaza is ‘unsustainable and unacceptable’; joining the United Nations Security Council in condemning “those acts which resulted in the loss of at least 10 civilians and many wounded’; and having a White House official tell the Washington Post that there is now a ‘general sense in the administration that it’s time to change our Gaza policy.’”

The convoy of ships set sail for Gaza from waters off the coast of Cyprus on May 30.

The administration let it be known that it had warned Israel to use restraint against the flotilla, “while issuing no warning to Turkey about supplying the convoy,” writes Charen.

She points to Obama’s failure to speak out in support of Iranian protesters who demonstrated against rigged elections, and his backing of a Hugo Chavez ally ousted from the presidency in Honduras, but adds:

“This week is a new low. Under Obama’s leadership, the United States has capitulated to terror tactics and the despicable temptation to blame Israel.

“America has always been the one country in the world that reliably countered the bullying and grotesque double standard much of the world applies to Israel. Obama has now joined the jackals. What a disgrace.”
