Immigration: The Folly Of Our Motivation - An Illustration

This video demonstrates to all of us - conservatives and liberals alike - just how inept and arrogant our motivations for allowing immigration in America. We all think we're helping out the poor? We've been guilted into believing we're so much better off than all these people in third world countries. And that we need to make a difference. before you watch this, ask yourself what you believe. Are we making a difference? You might say that we are making a difference to that one individual who comes here and leave his poverty stricken life behind. And perhaps we are, but what if it turned out that person was the one person who could have made a difference to millions of people in his or her country - maybe the next Bill Gates in some field of endeavor. This will open your eyes a bit I think, and if nothing else, make you think.

The Muslim Brotherhood Alive And Well In The White House, And Other Institutions As Well

On the heels of my post of a couple days ago - The Nightmare That Now Confronts Us - comes this story. The implications of this story are scary. This is the stuff usually reserved for works of fiction, but it's real! How can one man be so wrong on so many fronts? He could not have picked a worse set of advisors if that was the goal he was given upon entering office. He could not be causing more future security problems for America if he were trying. And yet, obama plods along like the chosen one, the king. He's like a kid acting a role in drama class, but who never studied the complexities of the part. He has no clue what he is doing. Or worse, he does...

White House Holds Workshop To Help Agents Of Jihad
Posted Tuesday, 21 September 2010
Marshall Frank

This article is about specific infiltration of our government by agents of the Muslim Brotherhood, who are dedicated toward the destruction of America from within. I hope every liberal and progressive minded, well-intentioned person who has any doubts, will take the time to digest the information herein. It leaves little doubt that our president is helping them along, either inadvertently or deliberately.

On August 31st of this year, the Obama administration invited several representatives from over twenty powerful Islamic organizations to attend a workshop hosted by the White House and other government agencies, including Homeland Security, Education and Health and Human Services. The purpose was to provide information and methods for red-tape cutting access to government funding. Many of these organizations have been linked directly, and indirectly, to the Muslim Brotherhood whose own uncovered documents have revealed their purpose for existence, i.e. the Islamization of America by destroying western institutions from within.


No one is making this up. This is not the product of some right-wing radical conspiracy. It’s real. And it’s deadly for America. If nothing else, it provides evidence that the Obama administration owes its allegiance more to the Islamic agenda than to the agenda of taxpaying Americans. Here are links to related articles. Read and weep:

Click here: ‘Direct Access’ Stimulus Grants for the Muslim Brotherhood

Click here: White House Providing “funding,

The Muslim Brotherhood is the global cloak organization under which hundreds of Islamic organizations are formed and operate, all with the same strategic long-range goal: The overthrow of our government. Think of them like we once thought of the Mafia. Local crime bosses and thugs all over America were the most visible. But the purse strings and rules were controlled by the hierarchy families, like Lucky Luciano and John Gotti. Only their God was money and we knew the players; they were not clandestine, they didn’t pretend to be law-abiding or “moderate.”

The Muslim Brotherhood is the stealth power group of marionette puppeteers that control all the strings of jihad around the world, including many of the so-called Islamic faith-based organizations in America.

In 1991 and again in 2007, key leaders of the Holy Land Foundation were put on trial for providing relief and funding to foreign terrorist organizations. During the course of those trials, many incriminating items of evidence were introduced and admitted. One of those was a document, authored and sanctioned by the Brotherhood hierarchy, which spells out their strategic goals. If successful, our grandchildren will be living under Sharia Law.

Do we care? Isn’t it at least worth a look? My question is directed toward naysayers, liberals, progressives and doubters. Check it out. This is no “Cry Wolf” story. We will all be sorry later if we don’t pay attention now.

The following link shows the document, written in Arabic and then translation into English. Make particular note of page 7 of 18 in the English translation section which states:

4- Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan (brothers) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes.

Here is the entire document:

The following report chronicles the discovery and source of the document. It also provides a partial list of the organizations associated with the MB, some of which are in the fold of the current White House:

In summary, the bottom line is this: Our president is aiding and abetting our enemies to assimilate/infiltrate into American society and our government. Our president is providing assistance for gaining access to our tax dollars so that our enemies can better carry out their agenda. Couple this, with all the other links and questions about the loyalty of Barack Obama to the future of a free America — many of which have been enumerated by myself in past articles, and by countless other writers and analysts who see with their eyes wide open, trying desperately offer a wake-up call to everyone who cares about our children’s future. It’s a matter of connecting dots and it becomes ever more suspicious that the president has violated his oath of office.

It is my fervent hope that the upcoming elections will upturn both houses of congress so that a new minority will be left to support the Democratic Obama agenda, and a new majority can initiate impeachment proceedings — before it is too late.

As an Independent, I usually stay away from Republican versus Democrat politics, because there is plenty wrong with both parties. This year, it is vital that as many Democrats are ousted from office as possible, for one reason: to help usurp the agenda of Barack Obama.

What Is WRONG With Senate Republicans?

In a phrase? There are just too many RINO's. The GOP hierarchy, and the entrenched Washington and throughout the party, including their ineffective chairman, has to go - period. There are no if's, and's, or but's about it. Vote them out in November as well! They are not interested in listening to us. And they can be, and probably will be, as destructive to the country as any Democrat that is elected in their place. It is interesting to finally see the true colors of the current Republican contingent in the Senate becoming visible- and it isn't Red, White and Blue! They are a sham. At least the Dems are clear on where they stand - no hiding there!Here's some info you might not have known from Jim DeMint.

Dear Friend:

You're not going to believe what happened this week. Just when I thought Republicans in Washington were beginning to get the message, they went back to business as usual.

As you know, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski lost the Republican primary to her conservative challenger, Joe Miller, in a fair fight. But instead of graciously conceding and endorsing the Republican nominee, Murkowski announced that she will continue her campaign as an independent write-in candidate.

Senate Republicans held a closed-door meeting Wednesday afternoon to elect someone to replace Senator Murkowski as the top Republican on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. Or so we thought.

Rather than taking away Murkowski's leadership position on the committee, Senate Republicans decided to let her keep it. One senator after another stood up to argue in favor of protecting her place on the committee — a position she will no doubt use in her campaign against Joe Miller, the conservative Republican nominee.

It was bad enough to watch my colleagues work to support her in the primary after she had built a record of betraying conservatives principles. But watching them back her after she left the party and launched a campaign against the Republican nominee was more than I could bear.

I spoke out against the motion and I voted against it. But the good ol' boys' club, which always protects its own, prevailed. The motion was adopted by secret ballot and the final tally was not disclosed.

Keep in mind that I was attacked just last week by the Washington establishment for supporting Christine O'Donnell — a conservative — because they believe her nomination will hand the seat to a Democrat in Delaware. This week, however, that same establishment voted to help Lisa Murkowski — a moderate — defeat the Republican nominee, which could hand the seat to a Democrat in Alaska.

Marc Thiessen addressed this double standard in a column he wrote for the Washington Post on Tuesday, which you can read here. Here's an excerpt:

In that sense of entitlement, Murkowski is not alone. All last week, we heard the GOP establishment complain how the Tea Party is threatening Republican unity by pursuing "ideological purity" at the expense of a "big tent" party. But Tea Party-endorsed candidates are the ones who have stayed within the GOP tent. Rather than launching destructive third-party bids, fiscally conservative insurgents have contested GOP primaries — and when they have lost, they have endorsed their establishment opponents virtually without fail.

Contrast that with the record of the establishment candidates. When it became clear Charlie Crist would lose to Marco Rubio in Florida's Senate race, Crist bolted the GOP and decided to run as an independent. When Arlen Specter saw he would lose to Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania's Senate race, he became a Democrat. And, after losing the GOP nomination in Alaska, Murkowski is running as an independent write-in candidate. And yet, we are told that it is the Tea Party that is dividing the GOP and threatening party unity. For establishment candidates, unity seems to be a one-way street. The message to Tea Party activists across the country is: We want your votes but not your candidates.

The idea that DeMint and the Tea Party are threatening the GOP's chances for reclaiming the majority is absurd. Republicans wouldn't have a shot at taking back either the House or Senate were it not for the Tea Party movement, which has both energized the conservative base and attracted independents to the GOP by promising to reform the party and restore fiscal sanity in Washington. The best way to dispirit the conservative base and lose those independents would be to take back the majority and go back to business as usual.

(click here to read Thiessen's column)

The decision by Senate Republicans to hurt the conservative nominee in Alaska is certainly dispiriting, but it's also a healthy reminder that we must keep fighting to elect new Republicans who won't continue business as usual. If we're going to change Washington, we have to change the people we send to Washington. It's that simple.

Join me today in supporting Joe Miller for U.S. Senate in Alaska. The Washington establishment is doing everything it can to help Lisa Murkowski hold on to power. The grassroots defeated her once in the primary election and we can do it again in November.

Please contribute to the Senate Conservatives Fund. Senator Murkowski said the "gloves are now off" when she announced her write-in campaign against Joe Miller. By giving to SCF, we can run ads in Alaska that stop her campaign dead in its tracks.

Help SCF Stop the Alaska RINO

Thank you for standing up for freedom. Washington may not be listening now but it will be in November.

"Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain!"

No one has been paying attention to them for decades, perhaps centuries. We better start paying attention, and finding out who they are, and what their ultimate purpose is, before those options are no longer available. Chances are the layers between them and us are so numerous that we may never know the truth. But I do know this for fact; if we don't start looking we definitely will never know. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Doing some research today I came across mention of this alleged forgery The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which caught my interest. It alleges a "plot" for world dominance by Zionists. There are claims that this book, published early last century in Russia, influenced the thinking of Adolph Hitler - thus his strong desire, and success, to eliminate the Jews.

I wanted to see where the 'teachings" in this book were connected to modern Islamic Extremists. In my search I came across this site, Radio Islam. This Website is huge! And though it claims to be anti-racist, the little I read before I got to my posting below clearly indicated that it tries to discredit Israel as a nation, and the aspiration of Jewish "elders" as well.

What I found fascinating was this passage about the founder of Radio Islam. As you will see, what struck me was the fact that what he is saying, albeit with a vent towards "blaming" the Jewish State, dovetails into my post yesterday regarding the international bank cartels, the Bilderberg group, the Tri-lateral commission, and the Council on Foreign Relations.

I don't necessarily agree with everything written in the article posted below. And don't for a minute get me wrong; I don't condone radical Islam, and in fact believe Islam is not a friend to America. (Naively or not, I do believe Israel is a friend to America.) But I equally fear the unseen forces that run our government and choreograph world events. Those unnamed architects living behind the organizations (and perhaps others) that I list above. We are in a world of hurt, my friends. More and more I'm feeling like David in his epic battle against Goliath. I liked how that one came out, and maybe that's why the story is in the Bible. It provides us hope in this particular time in history. Here's the article...

Ahmed Rami's idealism


"It doesn't matter at all, what government the country has. In reality the power is held by those, who own and control the financial assets of the country and the mass media. All Medias are completely judaized." - Ahmed Rami

After succeding in fleeing miraculously to Sweden, King Hassan II ordered that lieutenant Ahmed Rami was to be traced and brought back to Marocco. Rami had participated in at least two military coups aiming at abolishing the monarchy and founding an Islamic republic. The Moroccan secret service has not been able to execute the royal order.

Today this sympathetic, youthful and incredibly energetic man is one of the most popular persons in Sweden, but at the same time one of the most hated ones. His political views are discussed the Swedish parliament, and also - they tell us - in government circles.

Rami has written and published four thick books. In these he gives convincing reasons for his opinion that in Sweden - as well as everywhere else in the West - the bases of national life are undermined. The Western countries are in reality ruled by conspiring mafiosos, who have nothing in common with true democracy but are trying to carry into effect their malevolent aims, the introduction of a totalitarian "New World Order". Rami, who today is a Swedish citizen, never tires of repeating this in the transmissions of Radio Islam.

Naturally views of this kind are causing a noticeable irritation in the Establishment. A few years ago Rami, an (Arab and consequently himself a Semite) was prosecuted for antisemitism (!) and sentenced to prison, where he had to stay for six months. Curiously enough he has turned out to be the only political prisoner in Sweden.

In spite of all this Ahmed Rami is not a broken man and has in no way lost his spirit. The prison sentence has probably only strengthened his conviction of being right. The transmissions of Radio Islam continue, and the courageous Moroccan has no intention of giving up his struggle. To him it is important that "people in all countries should have the right of being independent and not having to submit to the oligarchy which has usurped the power for themselves".

What then is the basis of his conviction? What gives him the strength to say aloud what most people not even dare to think? Has he understood against whom he has lifted his hand, whom he has challenged? When I met Ahmed Rami, I could of course not refrain from asking these questions.

"Since my early youth I have stuck to my Islamic conviction. I have always been striving for equality and justice. For this reason I joined the Moroccan "People's Union", founded by Ben-Barka, who was later murdered by the secret police. King Hassan II is totally responsible for his death. He rules the country with medieval cruelty since several decades and is mainly a puppet of foreign powers, in the first place Israel and the USA, which is dominated by it.

You hear sometimes that Morocco is a "democratic monarchy". By that is meant - as usual today - in reality a judaeocracy. You can criticize whomever you want, only not those holding the real power. They always keep themselves hidden, and they must not be named at all.

The king cannot take a step without the Jew André Azoulay, a Zionist "adviser" from Canada. Azoulay - and people like him - now make the decisions in matters of state. Education, mass media and the whole of social life are regulated by these gentlemen, not by the Moroccans themselves. They decide upon the direction and upon what ideals the citizens should allow themselves to be guided by in their daily life. In this Arab country prevails the real Zionist censorship, which is called "democracy". The free will of the people and the free word simply does not exist. As a matter of fact, my life-experience has convinced me that the situation in other countries today is not much better.

In Sweden the brainwashing goes full speed ahead, and anti-Swedish valuations are forced upon people. Only the totally blind cannot notice this. The effect of Zionist intellectual terrorism and disinformation is that people deny the existence of a Jewish power at the same time as it scares them out of their wits! The Swedes can be proud of their high standard of living and rightly so, but they stubbornly refuse to realize what has been taken away from them.

The power over banks, mass media and commercial and industrial life is in the hands of a small group of "the chosen people". All education in schools and universities is carried on in a way, which is favourable to the "master race". In addition to this, the history of events not too far behind us is interpreted in the interest of "the peculiar people of the Lord". But the real truth is quite different from the one shown on TV or taught at school. And what kind of freedom, independence and democracy is this, when the power is in the hands of a few? Such is the situation in Sweden, too.

In the former government, the very important post of coordination minister was held by Jan Nygren, a representative of the Zionist mafia. In no way did he conceal that he felt like being the master of Sweden. In the "Jewish Chronicle" he published an article, in which he quite openly used the expression "my Jewish Sweden". This person had a lot of influence about who was to be in the government!

Now Nygren is out of the government, but in return they got another member of "the chosen people" as holder of the important post of assistant finance minister, Leif Pagrotsky. Today he is also minister of foreign commerce and as such an important representative of "the golden international"."

The Truth Of Politics? It's Just Show Business, And Peer Pressure

This impacts YOU! Don't ignore the facts outlined here. Nearly seven and a half MILLION people have watched this video to date. It is not about Obama exclusively, but about politics in America, and the world, over decades. It will be worth your time to watch it. You may want to research the Bilderberg Group. You may also want to research the Council on Foreign Relations and the Tri-lateral Commission. Take a look at the people who we know are part of those groups, then decide if what is portrayed here is possible. Even Newt Gingrich is part of the Council on Foreign Relations. I had posted on this topic several months ago. I wrote to Newt asking about his involvement; he never replied. Interestingly enough Cheney is also part of that group. As is Clinton. Hmmm, can you see conspiracy? And did you know that there is a move afoot to legislate against conspiracy theories? Hmm, why do you think that would be? Yes, friends, it's time we had a concerted effort to end the Fed! And to ensure that all items the government spends money on is kept in one set of books! Follow the money, and what it is doing to the country...

There is so much information contained within this video that it is hard to catalogue it all in your mind. This video, more than anything, should tell us exactly why there are career politicians - the power "behind the throne" needs stability and consistency. What we need at this time in our history is someone as President, and people in Congress. who have no ties to these groups, and who have ONLY the best interests of these United States of America as their agenda!.The Tea Party movement may be the only chance we have to remove ourselves from the grip of this global elite system. Me? I just can't imagine that we get out of this at all. But if, by the grace of God we do, it will only be through revolution - at the ballot box for sure, but possibly in the streets, and in Washington, as well. I guess it's up to each of us to decide just how important to us our sovereignty, and our liberty, really is. Don't stand down! And to our military - past and present - stay prepared to uphold your oath if it should ever come to that. Don't believe for an instant that genocide can not come to America. We have no immunity to that disease. This video would imply that it may very well get to that point. In one word, we must endure! Turn to your faith and embrace it, and with God, endure.

If you find this as disturbing as I do, please take the time to share it with your friends and family.

Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered. No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. - Thomas Jefferson...

Another Very Good Reason For Conservative America To Get Out And VOTE!!!

The Communist Party Is Alive And Well In America! I got this link from a post by The Wild West Coconut Show blog. There were some insightful comments there. The article below can be viewed here along with more info and articles on/from Communist Party USA.  

Together we can ensure this young generation takes its rightful place in history and helps advance the working class and people's movement on the road to socialism. - Communist Party USA Youth Conference

The “we generation” rejects right-wing ideology

by: John Bachtell
September 21 2010

Remarks to the CPUSA Youth Conference
Chicago, IL
July 17-18, 2010

We're gathered here because the young generation, including among them our sons and daughters and grandchildren, is experiencing a profound multi-sided crisis that demands urgent action.

We're here because the Communist Party recognizes how essential youth are to the outcome of present and future struggles; for mobilizing to defeat the extreme right in the 2010 elections and confronting the economic crisis, deepening the reform process, for winning a socialist future.

We're here because the Party has an essential role in helping the Young Communist League (YCL) to regain its footing and play an active and even leading role again among youth and students, in a period in which youth attitudes are changing markedly and open to progressive and radical alternatives.

We're here because the YCL could not absolutely exist without the Party. And the future of the Party is in doubt without a growing YCL.

The YCL is going through a basic transition, with a new membership, including those joining on-line daily, and emerging new leaders. Without proper attention by the Party, nationally, in districts and clubs, it is no exaggeration to say the future of the YCL is at stake.

Our experience historically has been that with the proper attention and attitude, the YCL can rebound relatively quickly.

So, this conference comes at a great time. It's a moment to renew our understanding and approach to the young generation and the YCL, and recommit to helping the YCL in every way possible to tackle this difficult, challenging, exciting period and thrive.

It's a great time because there are so many signs today's youth are developing profound new progressive attitudes that will impact politics for decades to come. These attitudes are developing in response to and as a part of the great labor led people's upsurge against the ultra right, but also the new economic, social and political circumstances they are growing up in.

The changes are so progressive some have dubbed today's youth, the "we generation," embracing the "common good" and rejecting the tenants of right-wing ideology.

Let's paint a broad canvass of this generation.

The "we generation" is made up of youth born between 1978 and 2000, make up 95 million of the US population of 300 million, bigger than the 78 million baby boomers.

In 2008, they comprised 50 million eligible voters. By 2020, they will comprise 90 million voters representing almost 40% of the electorate.

Since 2006, the "we generation" or Millennial' as they are also called, have been increasing their voter turnout markedly. In 2008 they were 20% of the vote, and increased turnout more than any other sector.

And vote they did. In 2006, 18-29 year olds voted 60-38% Democratic. In 2008, they voted 68 to 30 for Barack Obama. The youth were a key part of the coalition that elected Obama and gave the Democrats majorities in Congress. Youth were inspired by the Obama campaign, coming out in droves to volunteer and staff the operation across the country and cast their ballots.

Their orientation is also why Organizing For America is making the mobilization of the youth vote a top priority of its work this year.

Surveys show youth have widespread support for government action on jobs, more education funding, urgent action on the environment, changing US foreign policy, universal health care and regulation of the banks. They embrace social transformation on a grand scale.

Over 76% of youth think there should be a viable 3rd political party and an alternative to the two major parties. Thirty nine percent think of themselves as Independents, 36% Democrats and only 24% Republican.

The deep going economic crisis has shaken their confidence in capitalism. We are familiar by now with the Rasmussen and Gallup polls, which show that 45% and 50% respectively of today's youth think socialism, however they conceive of it, is a better system than capitalism.

Youth are not just progressive oriented, but are more civic minded and politically engaged than previous generations. We saw all this on display in the US Social Forum in Detroit.

Each generation comes of age under a unique set of global, economic and political circumstances that shapes its outlook, mood and attitude. Distinct experiences are impacting them - they are growing up in a time of unparalleled economic hardship and environmental catastrophe.

This bleak outlook certainly gives rise to pessimism and cynicism among a section of youth. And yet Obama's election has given many youth a sense of optimism despite the dismal economic and social prospects.

In painting the picture of this generation we see the gray hues of suffering and pain.

This is the first generation fully experiencing the decline of the US as a world power, and has grown up in an era of general economic decline in the living standards of their families and communities. They see the need for a new role for the US in the world.

This generation is experiencing the greatest gap in wealth of any generation in history.

The economic situation facing youth is dire, especially among African American and Latino and other oppressed youth. Forty-one% of children now live in low-income families. The special impact of racism has pushed 61% of African Americans, 62% of Latinos, 31% of Asians Americans and 57% of American Indian into low-income families.

The US poverty rate is the highest among developed nations. That includes 19% of children, including 35% of African American children.

Not only are substantial numbers of youth growing up in poverty, they are arriving at working age in an economic depression. Many face the prospect of a lifetime of joblessness, poverty and misery.

According to EPI, "Since the start of the recession in December 2007, young adults have attained the highest unemployment rate on record (since 1948). The unemployment rate for 16-24-year-old workers peaked in September 2009 at 19.2%- passing the peak rate of 19.0% from November 1982-and started 2010 at 18.9%."

Twenty million 16-24 year olds are unemployed. African American unemployment is at 32.5%, followed by Latinos (24.2%), and then whites (15.2%).

In 2009 72% of all teens were unemployed in Illinois and only 83% in Chicago. A staggering 88% of African American teens were unemployed statewide and 85% in Chicago

Through the juvenile courts and criminal justice system, the US incarcerates more of its youth than any other country in the world.

There are some 5 million young people aged 16-24 who are out of work and out of school. They find themselves alienated from society that is undergoing a scientific and technological revolution that constantly requires higher levels of education and training.

There are 18.2 million students attending universities. Large numbers graduate from college into unemployment. They can't find jobs in their chosen professions, must work part time and live at home.

In addition, students are accumulating sizeable debt loads from their education, which makes many "indentured servants" for life to the banks. In 2008 67% of students graduating from four-year colleges had student loan debts. The average debt is approximately $23,000.

This generation has had to endure the horror of widespread gun violence. Homicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among youth 10-24 years old. In Chicago over 30 public school students have died from gun violence each of the past 3 years. 15 youth are killed each day in US, 80% with firearms.

Youth, especially youth of color, are victims of police abuse. The killing of Oscar Grant and the stop, question, frisk tactics of the NYPD of 52,000 African American and Latino youth in 4 years, "criminalizing the entire generation".

This generation has grown up in an era of a new qualitative degradation in our environment, the alarm over global climate change, the outright criminality of corporations like BP. They feel the urgency to act now.

The picture of this generation also has a full rainbow tapestry. This generation is the most racially and nationally diverse young generation in US history. In 2006, youth of color comprised almost 40% of the young generation. This year for the first time, the number of births of babies of color was a majority. By 2050, 50% of Americans will be of people of color. This is already giving youth a sense of diversity, lending to widespread anti-racist attitudes, multiracial unity and broader acceptance and appreciation of diversity and having an impact on the struggle against racism.

Gay and lesbian sexual orientation are accepted without prejudice widely.

Because of the Internet and immigration, this generation has a more "global perspective."

The revolution in mass communications is having a profound impact on youth, shaping their social practice and interaction. Facebook and Myspace have become major outlets for political engagement. Two-thirds said they had a Facebook account, and 36% used Facebook to promote political candidates, ideas or events. Forty-five percent said they had read a political blog; 30 percent had forwarded a political video, etc.

Youth are cynical about government and corporate leaders, think they are often self-serving, and think government should do more.

This painting has some bold new strokes too.

This generation is growing up under a progressive labor movement that is actively reaching out to the youth. There are some 4.8 million workers in the leisure, hospitality and food service industries. And 3.9 million in retail trades. This motivated the AFL-CIO to organize the Young Workers Summit to organize young workers and change the image of trade unions among the youth.

The young generation is also experiencing a progressive labor movement and its leadership in many struggles. The labor movement is embracing the youth and seeks to specially organize them, including someone in their top leadership reaching out to them. They have set up a special program just for this purpose.

USWA President Leo Girard recently called upon youth to lead a new civil rights revolution on the jobs struggle. Girard said, "Sisters and brothers of the next generation, it's time for a revolution. It's time to stand up and be heard. It's time to mobilize online and in the streets. Together, let's tweet, Facebook and text. Let's rally, vote and, where necessary, sit in. Let's lead the civil rights movement 2.0."

So what can the Party do and what can the Party and YCL do together?

Our starting point is the role of the CPUSA, and by inference the YCL. Our role is to help build the broad democratic movement for change and within that the organized might, influence and leadership of the working class, specifically organized labor. Our role is to identify the chief stages of struggle, the main obstacles to progress at each stage, today of course the struggle against the ultra right, and help to assembly the broad coalition of forces necessary to advance.

This is also done in unity with what we have identified as the other essential class and social or core forces - the racially and nationally oppressed communities and women.

Also among these essential core forces is the young generation. All of these core forces overlap and interpenetrate and influence each other.

A great challenge before the Party is to deepen its relationship to the youth on many fronts and levels. This includes on the most immediate political tasks, and to help deepen youth's relationship to the working class and other core forces

The role of the Party is also to simultaneously build popular support for the ideas of socialism, the socialist current, and among the young generation in the "battle of ideas." To chart the path forward that will result in "wresting by degrees" control by capital.

The Party does all this by working shoulder to shoulder with the YCL on all the main struggles of the day. The Party also takes its own independent initiatives to influence the youth.

For example, shouldn't we seek to involve youth in the 2010 election coalition? Help them set up OFA chapters on campuses, and be involved in targeted campaigns through their unions and other organizations?

Shouldn't we work to bring youth into the developing jobs coalitions that are springing up around the country?

Shouldn't we help organize broad support for youth oriented legislation, including for jobs, education funding, etc. ?

Shouldn't we work jointly together to increase the mass circulation of the People's World/Mundo Popular? Isn't our news source also great for the young generation? What can we do to make it even more attractive to youth?

The YCL should be the place leading young communists learn their trade and develop their world outlook: the organization and vehicle from which they can most effectively engage and influence their peers.

The YCL is especially needed because youth have a need for their own forms and "path" to a socialist outlook, forms and a language they and their peers understand.

The YCL, like the Party, is an indispensable and unique organization to the working class and people's movement. YCLers describe it as a "schoolhouse of struggle."

The way we conceive it, the YCL should and can play a vital role in uniting the youth and uniting the young generation with labor and the other core forces through its initiatives and action.

The YCL also plays an indispensable role in building the left and communist current among the youth, in developing the forms and activities where youth can be learn Marxism.

It's an organization where youth can fully embrace their incredible diversity, learn working class and revolutionary morals, treat each other as equals, strengthen their defenses against racism, male supremacy and anti-gay bias.

Another great challenge for the Party then is to help build the YCL into an organization and movement with a mass following among youth.

What kind of organization and movement is up to the YCL and will result from its day-to-day activities. It is determined by the material conditions and the needs of young people. It will not be and cannot be the same kind of organization that the older generations were schooled in, fell in love in, and got married in, including my generation. It must be specifically for, by and about this "we" generation, with its own stamp.

For example, how is the YCL being shaped by the Internet and mass communication revolution? How can the YCL and we utilize the Internet to reach and engage a far greater audience of youth, the 50% who believe socialism is the future?

The Party not only gives a political lead, but also provides a wealth of experience and Marxist education for developing the YCL membership and those around it. Districts and clubs give practical assistance and mentoring to establish and build YCL grassroots organizations and become engaged in coalition struggles.

The young generation has only known the Internet and the revolution in mass communications. It is as natural to them. The potential for reaching youth with our ideas is greater than ever before, and we can do it easily and inexpensively if we (and the YCL) master the use of the Internet.

The communist youth movement will the forms of communication it has grown up with and adopted naturally: social networking and particularly video, audio and digital forms; a streaming radio or video production must replace concept Dynamic; in fact with radio or video production all aspects of the YCL movement can proceed within a single enterprise: educational, organizational, political.

The Party would be remiss if we didn't do everything we could in this moment to reach out and engage the youth with our ideas. We would be equally remiss if we didn't take steps to build the YCL.

Can we assist the YCL in developing its mass communications platform?

Can we organize schools for youth in cities across the country, jointly organized by the National Party, Districts and the YCL?

Can we continue to organize a Party speaking tour on campuses across the country?

Together we can ensure this young generation takes its rightful place in history and helps advance the working class and people's movement on the road to socialism.

How Does A Government Lose Control Of It's Country?

One way is by not listening to, or heeding the voice of, it's citizenry. Control by the obama administration is increasingly slipping away. Every time a president makes a statement like "we can absorb another terrorist attack", or the DOJ sues a state for wanting to protect itself, and every time a president stands up and apologizes for his country, a little more respect, a little more support and a little more control is lost. As more and more people become aware of the fact that the media propaganda machine is not interested in presenting the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth to it's audience, whether in print, on the radio, or on TV,  the government loses a little more trust, and with it, control. Eventually what is articulated in the story below is what you get, and it is being exported to the United States. Yes, my friends, our government is losing control...

 Juarez editorial ignites a beleaguered Mexico

By Katherine Corcoran, Associated Press Writer

MEXICO CITY – A newspaper's stunning, front-page editorial of seeming surrender to drug capos has set off a national debate from the presidential palace to Mexico's equivalent of the water cooler — its ubiquitous town squares.

"What do you want from us?" El Diario de Juarez asked the cartels whose war for control of the border city across from El Paso, Texas, has killed nearly 5,000 people — including two El Diario journalists — in less than two years. "You are currently the de facto authorities in this city ... Tell us what you expect from us as a newspaper?"

For many Mexicans, it was a voice that finally exposed in a very public and unusual way the intimidation felt across the country.

"We weren't speaking directly to (drug gangs). It was an open message," El Diario director Pedro Torres said in one of dozens of interviews since the editorial appeared Sunday. "We wanted to provoke a reaction that would call attention to what's happening in Juarez, and in the end, I think we met our objective."

The editorial dominated headlines and talk shows for two days, and Torres said he received calls from as far as Russia and Japan.

It also brought a volley of accusations of collusion and incompetence between government and media, whose adversarial relationship is still evolving a decade after the end of tight controls under Mexico's single-party rule.

And it exposed the dissonance between Mexicans who must deal with violence daily and those who live in quieter parts of the country for whom little has changed since President Felipe Calderon launched an offensive against the cartels in late 2006.

"There are many parts of the republic that don't want to understand that things have changed a lot for some people ... into a state where they've lost control," said Jose Carreno Carlon, a journalist and professor who headed media relations for former President Carlos Salinas de Gortari. "There are cases of journalists who are pressured by criminals — who have to consider that in their work, who have to address the de facto authorities every day."

The editorial could be a turning point for Mexicans, pushing them to recognize the corrupting forces on freedom of expression in a country considered the most dangerous in the Americas for journalists, according to the U.N. and the Organization of American states.

El Diario captured a feeling of helplessness that resonates nationwide, said newspaper editor Jose Martin Mayoral Lozano, who has limited coverage of organized crime since his car was torched in 2005 as a threat.

"This is something unusual," he said. "I see it as a call to the people, a call to awaken society to what's happening in our country."

With last week's killing of El Diario photographer Luis Carlos Santiago, 21, a total of 65 news workers have been slain since 2000, Mexico's National Commission on Human Rights has said.

They include Armando Rodriguez, El Diario crime reporter who was gunned down in 2008 as he was taking his daughters to school. The federal investigator in the case also was assassinated and there are no leads.

Calderon met with international press groups Wednesday, saying he would push legal reforms to protect journalists and create a security plan in the wake of a report from the Committee to Protect Journalists, which outlines widespread impunity for attacks on reporters in Mexico.

Under the plan, patterned after one in Colombia, the government would provide protections for journalists facing threats, including security or relocation to a safe haven, said Joel Simon, CPJ executive director. The plan could be rolled out as early as next month.

Calderon's government rankled press groups with its reaction to Santiago's killing. It condemned the attack, but accepted the Chihuahua state prosecutor's theory that the photographer was killed for personal reasons — not for his work.

"The authorities have to be very careful not to disqualify or say immediately that a killing didn't have to do with the journalist's work," said Gonzalo Marroquin, vice president of the Inter American Press Association, who met with Calderon. "It could be an easy exit to avoid the problem."

Mexican journalists blame the government as much as the cartels for the intimidation they face.

Jorge Luis Aguirre, 52, a journalist in Ciudad Juarez who was granted U.S. asylum days before Santiago was killed, testified before U.S. Congress that he was threatened by a Chihuahua state official.

Television cameraman Alejandro Hernandez also is seeking U.S. asylum after being kidnapped in July, presumably by the Sinaloa drug cartel. His lawyer says he fears both the cartels and the government.

But Mexican journalists also shoulder some blame.

Though press independence has increased in Mexico, corruption reigns, particularly in smaller media markets. Salaries are low, leaving reporters vulnerable to bribes. Government advertising remains a major source of funding — influence — for many publications.

"Criminals routinely bribe them to act as cartel publicists or to buy their silence," according to the CPJ report.

But that, too, could be changing, said Carlo Lugos Galera, a political science professor at Mexico's Iberoamerican University.

"The editorial is a wake-up call to society to be more demanding of the media ... more demanding for reliable information," he said.

Associated Press writers Olivia Torres in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and Olga R. Rodriguez and E. Eduardo Castillo in Mexico City contributed to this report. (End of Report)
Our own media has set off down this same path. More and more frequently we see journalistic integrity compromised for some reason - bribe money? Ideological view? Fear? Intimidation? I don't know, but when the media is unable, or unwilling, to share the truth, or worse, complicit in hiding the truth, the people feel more and more disenfranchised and less and less trustful of the government. As that trust grows, the government loses more and more control of the country and has to set more and more stringent regulations and pass increasingly intrusive and controlling laws. The more that happens the more disillusioned the citizenry becomes, and distrust of the government increases. It's a vicious circle that will eventually lead to an overthrow of the government. How long before that happens in Mexico? And if it can happen there, how long before it happens here? Well that depends largely pepends upon the results of the November elections...

See you at the polls!

WTC Update - This Is Rather Interesting...

The implications of the discovery of unspent aluminothermic explosives and matching residues in World Trade Center dust are staggering. There is no conceivable reason for there to have been tons of high explosives in the Towers except to demolish them, and demolition is blatantly incompatible with the official 9/11 narrative that the skyscrapers collapsed as a result of the jetliner impacts and fires.

The discovery of active thermitic materials adds to a vast body of evidence that the total destruction of the Towers were controlled demolitions, and to the subset of that evidence indicating the use of aluminothermic materials to implement those demolitions.

The article, which you can access here, is pretty well articulated. Even before reading this, in fact when it happened, I remember wondering how a building that big could just crumble. Subconsciously I recognized the implosion as very much like a demolition. Now I know why. Could it be that the destruction of the buildings - including WTC 7 - were ensured through redundant "systems" of destruction? I don't profess to know what it all means at this point, but it is interesting...

It Looks Like Our Liar-In-Chief Has Had Years Of Practice

"When you are a phony it's hard to keep facts straight. The only ones that haven't seen through this clown and the band of idiots that surrounds him are those that are fleecing this Country for all it's worth. I hope and pray that common sense will prevail in the next election or this great Nation is finished!"

This came to me second hand Doesn't character matter to anyone any more? It sure is interesting to know that the little "o" has been lying a lot longer than the past two years. Not comforting, just interesting. I've said before that he is a pathological liar. He may also be a sociopath - here's the profile of a sociopath...what do you think?


[Ed. note on the Ed. note: this is from a former Chicago lawyer now practicing law in Tyler , TX ]

[Ed. note: This is legit. I checked it out myself at https://www.iardc.org/, see this. IARDC stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It's the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois; and they are very strict and mean as hell. (Talk about irony!) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn.]

Big surprise !!!

Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and US President Makes Up Constitutional Quotes During 'State Of The Union ' Address.

Consider this:

1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a "lawyer". He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

A "Voluntary Surrender" is not something where you decide "Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?" and forget to renew your license. No, a "Voluntary Surrender" is something you do when you've been accused of something, and you 'voluntarily surrender" your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

2. Michelle Obama "voluntarily surrendered" her law license in 1993.

3. So, we have the first black President and First Lady - who don't actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

Source: http://jdlong.wordpress.com/2009/05/15/pres-barack-obama-editor-of-the-Harvard-law-review-has-no-law-license/

4. A senior lecturer is one thing. A fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago .

5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) "served as a professor" in the law school - but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

6. "He did not hold the title of professor of law," said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law.

Source: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2008/03/sweet_obama_did_hold_the_title.html;

7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the US Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.

8. The B-Cast posted the video: http://www.breitbart.tv/did-obama-confuse-the-constitution-with-the-declaration-of-independence/

9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: "We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal..

10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:  We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech???

When you are a phony it's hard to keep facts straight. The only ones that haven't seen through this clown and the band of idiots that surrounds him are those that are fleecing this Country for all it's worth. I hope and pray that common sense will prevail in the next election or this great Nation is finished!

The Nightmare That Now Confronts Us

On How Many Fronts Do We Need To Fight?

I was responding to a post on a blog that I was reading earlier. The topic was about our current fight with radical Islamists, which actually began in 1979. You can read that post here if you'd like. But I got to thinking about the plan radical Islamists might be cooking up, and this is what I came up with - a plan that would dwarf the 9/11 attack. Now before you go scoffing at it, think back 10 years. Who would have thought anyone would fly planes into the twin towers...

So here's the sad story of what might happen next time around. For the past 10 years we have closed our eyes to the fact that tens, perhaps hundreds, of thousands of Islamists have come into our country - legally and otherwise. Hundreds of thousands more will come in over the next decade. We have allowed thousands of mosques to be built, and thousands more will be built in the years ahead. We have allowed Islamist "compounds" to be built - gated and off limits even to American law enforcement personnel. We are tolerating Muslim culture, and with it the slow encroachment of Sharia Law, which in the not too distant future, will be "acceptable" in the Muslim communities in America. We are allowing "Muslim" influence to be taught to our school kids (see my earlier post). Once the Islamists have all their ducks in a row, they will strike again, another attack, this time much grater in scope than the 9/11 attacks. Because simultaneously the Muslim population that over two decades will have quietly infiltrated our country (and who we are willingly allowing (and will continue to allow) to cultivate and spread their culture, a population which will have increased dramatically along with Muslim influence, and their knowledge of any law enforcement and emergency responses we might have) will fall back upon their religion, cry "ALLAH", and join their brethren who initiated the attack on us. We, being the fat, dumb and happy morons that we are as a country, will have no clue as to how to organize a counter attack of the magnitude required to quell the uprising, nor, in many cases, even know how to defend ourselves. The chaos will be enormous as scenes of terror never before seen in America confront us. And when the dust finally settles - however many days, weeks or months that battle will take - that will be the real end of America. Far-fetched? We would have said the same thing 10 years ago if someone suggested that planes would have been flown into the twin towers!

So while we contemplate the destruction wrought by obama and his administration, another plan to destroy America, one even more devastating than obama's treachery, is happening right in front of us. And most of us don't even see it gathering. Perhaps obama, even with his Muslim ties and his Muslim experiences and his fondness for all things Muslim, isn't a part of this grand plan. But is it possible that everything that obama is doing is just a ruse to allow time for Muslims, the people he really identifies with, to get their ducks in a row? Let's see, he was a Constitutional Professor - he knows his agenda will not fly for long. Much of what he is doing will be rejected by the populace; what's not rejected outright will be repealed. But while all of America is energized and focused on that battle - regardless of which side you're on - could it be that he has willingly and knowingly opened the door for the real destruction of America?

I'm just thinking...

Stand With God, Stand For Liberty!

Lest We Forget

A picture paints a thousand words they say. If that is true, what does this picture say about obama's true feelings for America? Certainly does make me wonder - it did then, and with all he's done to set the course of destruction we're on, it makes me wonder still...

One Nation, Under God - The Tale Of A Christian Nation

Here's something that may be of interest to you...

The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States
"I was debating an ACLU attorney at Christmas on an NPR station. I pulled out a Xerox copy of The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States and said to her: "Until you answer this book, the ACLU can't make a case against America's Christian founding." She was shocked when she saw it. She asked where I had gotten it. The only thing that gave her relief was the fact that the book was not in print. But now it is.

"Be afraid ACLU. Be very afraid. Morris packs The Christian Life and Character with page after page of original source material making the case that America was founded as a Christian nation. The evidence is unanswerable and irrefutable. This 1000-page book will astound you and send enemies of Christianity into shock. Keep in mind that it was published in 1864 and has been out of print for more than a century."—Gary DeMar.

Imagine That, Obama And His Administration Lied! Who'd Have Believed It Possible?

Well now, are you happy that obamacare was rammed down your throat? Anyone?

ObamaCare Promise of No Rationing Broken by FDA

Posted by Brian Darling on RedState.com
Sunday, September 19th

Until recently, the implications of ObamaCare were debated in a vacuum. There were allegations and responses, but no results to support either side. Now that we have entered the implementation phase of ObamaCare, things are becoming more clear. Many of the bold promises that were offered to sell ObamaCare to the American public were not based in reality.

Tax increases hit Americans next year and, in many states, they are already seeing health insurance rates increase as a result of ObamaCare. In addition to the Obama Administration promising that insurance rates would not go up, they have also promised that rationing of care would not happen. But bad things seems to be happening sooner than expected and contrary to explicit promises of this Administration.

This past August, an advisory panel for the Food and Drug Administration recommended that the late stage cancer drug Avastin be “de-labeled” because of cost considerations. It is critical to note, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) did not propose denying cancer victims the right to the drug because of the safety of the drug, but because of a formula containing cost as factor.

Senator David Vitter (R-LA) has taken a leadership position on the issue and has written letters to the FDA and expressing concern about “cost rationing.” Senator Vitter is worried that the Avastin case will be the beginning of ObamaCare rationing for drugs that may extend life. Rationing for seriously ill patients based on cost.

Should the FDA agree with the advisory panel’s recommendation, private insurers and Medicare will drop coverage for the drug for breast cancer patients, despite the fact that the drug extends life for an average of six months. This is a classic example of why many conservatives are concerned about government run health care.

By using cost as a factor in their decision-making, the FDA has begun the implementation of ObamaCare and breast cancer patients may be its first victim. Politically, this is another disaster for those who voted for health care reform. If this drug, or any other, is denied because of cost, they will be forced to defend the decision.

The FDA has put off a final decision for another 90 days on the future of the drug according to the AP.

Drugmaker Roche said Friday that U.S. health regulators will take more time to review its drug Avastin for breast cancer, a use that has generated vigorous debate among cancer specialists and patients. The company said in a statement that the Food and Drug Administration extended its review of the drug by 90 days, or until Dec. 17.

This kicks the decision until after the fall Congressional elections. It will be much easier for the FDA to make a difficult decision after the election removing pressure from Americans who oppose government rationed care. The American people do not want rationed care and drugs for the seriously ill.

The senior advocacy group 60 Plus released the findings of a new poll that asks people about the FDA basing cancer decisions on cost. Let’s just say, the argument about ObamaCare is no longer theoretical — denial of care will impact lives and the American people know it.

Key findings of the poll include:

•56% of registered American voters believe the new healthcare reform law will lead to so-called “rationing” of care;

•82% believe that cost-effectiveness is not a justification for rationing;

•78% “worry” that the FDA’s revocation represents the “start of healthcare rationing;” and

•71% of registered American voters report they would be less likely to vote for any member of Congress who supported the FDA decision on drugs like Avastin. 49% would be “much less likely.”

Will someone have the guts to ask an ObamaCare supporter if breast cancer patients should be denied insurance coverage for Avastinor other life extending drugs? Will others join Senator Vitter in his fight to protect cancer patients? With Members of Congress running away from ObamaCare, even members of the President’s party, they are sure to run away from the FDA’s potential decision to deny patients access to a drug that extends the life of seriously ill cancer patients. This situation is yet another example of why ObamaCare needs to be repealed.

So, It's GW's Fault?

According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the agency for analyzing and calling the start and end of recessions, the recession ended just 5 months after obama took office. Isn't that funny? All along he's been blaming Bush for our troubles! And now his own agency tells us that it's him! So now we have to ask ourselves that since the recession ended in June of 2009, where would we be today if it weren't for obama's economic policies? Now remember, very little of the stimulus money was spent in those first 5 months, so it looks as though the stimulus GW pushed actually did what it was intended to do. So what did a failed Stimulus, a failed TARP, takeovers of several facets of the industrial market - cars, banks, insurance industries, along with meddling with the oil industry with an aim towards passing Cap & Trade legislation get us other than a stagnant unemployment rate which is much higher than obama swore his policies would ever allow. How incredibly ironic is this report?! Way to go little"o"!

Recession ended in June 2009: NBER
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The recession ended in June 2009, making it the longest downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, the National Bureau of Economic Research said on Monday.

The NBER, considered the arbiter of U.S. recessions, said its declaration did not mean the economy had "returned to operating at normal capacity" and cautioned that economic activity sometimes remains below normal well into expansion.

President Barack Obama, under pressure to speed up the pace of recovery and drive down unemployment as November congressional elections near, said the official end of the recession did not change the grim reality for many people.

"Economists may say that the recession officially ended last year," Obama said. "Obviously for the millions of people who are still out of work, people who have seen their home values decline, people who are struggling to pay their bills day to day, it's still very real for them."

The NBER's business cycle dating committee, a private sector group composed of academic economists, is notorious for taking its time in declaring the start and end of recessions.

The committee said it waited to make its decision this time because it wanted to review revised data on national income, released August 27, to get a clearer reading on the path of economic output in 2009.

After a meeting in April, some of the panel's members said they were concerned the economy could dip back into negative territory. In Monday's announcement, the NBER said any fresh downturn would mark a new recession, not a continuation of the one that began in December 2007.

"The basis for this decision was the length and strength of the recovery to date," the NBER said.

U.S. officials have been struggling to find a way to speed up a sluggish recovery that has left unemployment at a painfully high 9.6 percent. The U.S. Federal Reserve's policy-setting committee meets on Tuesday, and is widely expect to discuss whether additional measures are warranted to bolster the economy.

"Due to the lack of improvement in the labor market, particularly the stubbornly high unemployment rate, the recovery still feels like a recession to many households," said Harm Bandholz, chief U.S. economist at UniCredit Research in New York. "The NBER does not seem to be too enthusiastic about the economic outlook either."

Immigration T-Shirt Spat at Maryland Mall

Mall management calls pro-Arizona shirts offensive

Maryland is in the midst of a debate over whether to follow Arizona in adopting a strict new law on illegal immigration. One thing that shouldn’t be up for debate is whether it is OK to express an opinion about whether such a law would be a good idea.

But the management of Francis Scott Key Mall in Frederick isn’t so sure. According to the Frederick News-Post, mall owner Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust has asked the owner of the Antietam Gallery custom framing gallery to stop selling “Maryland Stands With Arizona” T-shirts out of his shop.

In a letter to gallery owner James Kehoe, the management cites a rule against “goods with derogatory or offensive political messages,” the paper reported. Kehoe, who considers the shirts to be “patriotic,” responded not by removing the shirts, but by notifying the media and several local officials.

Kehoe cited a dozen items sold at Spencer Gifts, the place where good taste goes to die, that “contained profane language and sexually oriented messages,” the News-Post reported. Kehoe also said Spencer Gifts is selling a shirt “with a derogatory message aimed specifically at illegal immigrants.”

Immigration is a complex issue. Many come to the United States illegally out of desperation, risking a journey that is fatal for some, and taking the least desirable jobs at the lowest pay if they make it.

But nations have the right and the obligation to set limits on immigration -- those of Mexico are much harsher than those of the U.S. -- and those who have come to the U.S. through legal means are right to be angry by the millions who broke the law to get here.

What is not a complex issue is whether we have a right to talk about it. The mall managers and others who would take offense at Kehoe’s shirts may not like restricting entry into the U.S., but they have a very odd idea about what that same country is all about.

“It’s not about the T-shirt,” Kehoe told the News-Post. “It’s about people being victimized by political correctness and people feeling they are not able to speak the truth about things.”

People who run a mall named after the man who wrote the national anthem should understand that.

Is This Enough To Get You To The Voting Booth?

While I believe most Americans embrace the action(s) of being charitable, it is not the role of government to take from one person and give it to another - unless you are from the old Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela or some other socialist/communist run country. It is NOT American! Watch this, because this is exactly what these people - obama, members of his administration, advisors and allies want to do to you and to America! Is this enough to get you out to vote? I'm praying that it is...

My Take On Conservative America

There is no better illustration of the political ideologies struggling for prominence around the country as we battle for the very soul of America than the race in Delaware. Not only does conservative America have to beat back the challenge of a liberal Democrat, but they also had to beat back the challenge of a liberal Republican. When a Republican powerhouse like Karl Rove comes out and says that the people's choice to run on the Republican ticket is unelectable, you have to ask yourself what the Republican machine is really all about? Is that machine designed to provide clear alternatives to the Democrat agenda, or is it designed to help move the country further and further to the left - albeit, under the guise of not doing so?

The Republican establishment says that Mike Castle would have had an excellent chance to take the Senate seat in Delaware, but what if he had succeeded in winning the primary? Would the conservatives in America be better represented, or would the liberals just have one more Rino to help steer America to slaughter?  I suggest the latter would have been the case. So why then was the Republican establishment so adamant in their character slaying of Christine O'Donnell? And how does that impact her chances to win in November?

In my estimation, the final result is still entirely in the people of Delaware's hands. A state that has had to deal with the clownish persona of Joe Biden sure had better look hard at their choices this time around. They need to make sure they also look at the direction of the country - not just their own state. If we continue to elect liberal Democrats, or liberal Republicans, to national office conservative America doesn't stand a chance. We've been under assault for so many years, that to withstand even two more years of liberal policies and ideology may very well lead to losing the war. I predict it would do so.

As far as I'm concerned, there really is no choice for conservative America to make. If the Karl Rove's of the party are right when they claim that Republicans need to elect more moderate (liberal) candidates for office in order to entice more liberal minded people into the "tent", then conservative America has already lost. So their is no downside for us to elect the most conservative people we can find out there to run. I think we're seeing that manifest itself in several elections around the country where incumbents from both sides of the aisle are seeing stiff competition first from within their own party, and then, if they survive the primary, from conservatives from within rival parties. Stay the course America, vote conservative!

The Invisible In America Are About To Rise Up And Stand For Their Country One More Time

The Grey-Haired Brigade
Posted by Wayne Leeper on September 5, 2010

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “baby boomer” getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshipped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill and that is probably true.

But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration. In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, ten cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II and fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote the pledge of allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America, we fought for the “land of the free and home of the brave.” We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangle Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read about in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent. It was the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic congress. You fell for the “Hope and change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and lies.” You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don’t like it after all.

You make a lot of noise but most are all too interested in their careers and “Climbing the social ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. It appears that we care more about our grandchildren than some care about their children. Many of those who fell for the “great lie” in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the kool-aid. Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey Haired Brigade is here, and in two months we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we’re going, and in November we’re going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the Muslim in the White House or to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to We the People, and We the People plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren.

So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the Grey-Haired Brigade.

“The silver haired head is a crown of glory, if it is found in the way of righteousness. Proverbs 16:31

If Tony Montana Were Iranian...

He's got an ego as big as Montana's, he's got the cocky attitude, he's got the power... maybe someone should give him the ending. Just thinking out loud...

AP Interview: Ahmadinejad says future is Iran's
By John Daniszewski And Edith M. Lederer, Associated Press Writers

NEW YORK – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday that "the future belongs to Iran," and challenged the United States to accept that his country has a major role in the world.

The comments came in an hour long interview with The Associated Press on the first day of his visit to the United States to attend the annual general assembly of the United Nations this week.

He insisted that his government does not want an atomic bomb — something he has said in the past — and that Iran is only seeking peace and a nuclear-free world. He gave no indication of when Iran would resume talks on its nuclear program and said any anti-nuclear sanctions against his government would have no effect on his government's policies.

Appearing calm and self-assured, the Iranian president said he was pleased about the release of American hiker Sarah Shourd from a prison in Tehran, but said her two companions still in prison would have to prove their innocence on charges that they illegally crossed into the country.

"The United States' administrations ... must recognize that Iran is a big power," he said. "Having said that, we consider ourselves to be a human force and a cultural power and hence a friend of other nations. We have never sought to dominate others or to violate the rights of any other country.

"Those who insist on having hostilities with us, kill and destroy the option of friendship of us in the future, which is unfortunate because it is clear the future belongs to Iran and that emnities will be fruitless — and hence sanctions, too, will be ineffective."

He added: "If they were to be effective, I should not be sitting here right now."

Ahmadinejad asserted that international nuclear regulators had never found proof that Iran is pursuing an atomic bomb.

We've Taken On The Government; Now It's Time To Take On The Media! Tell The Truth!

And if radio talk show hosts are sooooo radical, so hateful, how then are they so popular? And why does the left feel so threatened by them? Today 89% of Americans believe that the media is biased. Don't you deserve the truth? Some want to destroy this country; some of us say "No"! Where do you stand?

A Choice Of Two Futures

Rarely before have the alternatives facing America been so starkly defined.

For the past year, Washington’s leaders have taken an already unsustainable budget outlook and made it far worse. They have exploited Americans’ genuine economic anxieties to justify an unrelenting and wide-ranging expansion of government. Their agenda has included, among other things, a failed, debt-financed economic “stimulus”; an attempt to control the Nation’s energy sector; increasing domination of housing and financial markets; the use of taxpayer dollars to seize part ownership of two nearly bankrupt auto makers; and, of course, the planned takeover of Americans’ health care, already heavily burdened, manipulated, and distorted by government spending and regulation. This domineering government brings taxes, rules, and mandates; generates excessive levels of spending, deficits, and debt; leads to economic stagnation and declining standards of living; and fosters a culture in which self-reliance is a vice and dependency a virtue – and as a result, the entire country weakens from within.

It Really IS Simple; It's ALL About God!

This is a copy of an email that was sent to me today. I've seen it before, perhaps you have as well. But I thought it worth posting because I believe the truth of why we are where we are culturally, politically, morally and spiritually, or at least a large part of it, lies in these words. And because I believe that the truth lies here, I have decided to post it, place it on Face Book and forward it to those on my email contacts list. What do you think? Worth sharing?


My confession:

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees... I don't feel threatened.. I don't feel discriminated against.. That's what they are, Christmas trees.

It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu .. If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.
Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.
In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.
Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Hurricane Katrina).. Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response.. She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?'
In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.
Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about.. And we said okay..
Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.
Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing yet?
Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.
Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
Pass it on if you think it has merit.
If not, then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.
My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully, Ben Stein
