A Hopeful Future?

Here is a scene I hope to see sometime after Jan. 6 2013...Actually I would prefer that they would be dressed in orange jumpsuits and that there would be bars in the windows behind them; but I suppose that is too much to ask for....

Fast & Furious

The inimitable Bill Whittle gives his take on Fast and Furious, as he says, just follow the ideology and it all becomes clear just how far this Administration will go to foist it's Socialist spin on the American public.

Just ask yourself this question:

President Obama and AG Holder have both stated that they knew nothing about the gunrunning scheme.

Some few of the documents released to Mr. Issa's Committee have shown, that at least in AG Holder's case, that this is a blatant falsehood.

President Obama has invoked a blanket of Presidential Privilege on any further documents being released to the Committee.

IF neither man knew anything about the program; just WHAT are they invoking Privilege ON ?

How can there be any Privilege for any conversations/contacts that supposedly never occurred ?

UPDATE: Seems REP. Issa has the same concerns about Executive Privilege that I do. This letter is the closest thing to a bitch-slap as you'll ever find in public in major league politics. All I can say is "ATTA-BOY"!

MUST Read !

My sister sent me this, and I believe it is of the utmost importance that every American reads and takes this message to heart...if not, we are doomed to lose this battle.

In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: “Who lost Europe ?”

Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the ‘Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem’.

Dear friends;

Thank you very much for inviting me. I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world.

There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic.

We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States is the last bastion of Western civilization facing an Islamic Europe.

First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe . Then, I will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem .

The Europe you know is changing.You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.

All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figure less tents,with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead with mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read them. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity

These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe . These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe , street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by

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

Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam , Marseille, and Malmo in Sweden . In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohamed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.

In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.

Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear 'whore, whore'. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.

In France, school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.

In England, sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the Ramadan.

Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run from the worst wave of antisemitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya , Israel . I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.

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

Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France . One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks

The British Center for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this is how we give them respect. We have Muslim official state holidays.

The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey .

Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. I call the perpetrators 'settlers'. Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers.

Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries. Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.

The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohamed the prophet. His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohamed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem

But Mohamed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages - at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohamed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.

Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person

Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam 'the most retrograde force in the world', and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor

I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.

This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines , Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan , Lebanon , and Aceh in Indonesia . Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel . It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel , Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest.

Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

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

If they can get Israel , they can get everything. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'.

In my country, the Netherlands , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat to national security.

Yet there is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine.

An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome , Athens and Jerusalem .

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe, American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish.

My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe ’s children in the same state in which it was offered to us.We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so.

We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.

Please take the time to read and understand what is written here, please send it to every free person that you know - it is so very important.

Hyprocrisy at it's Finest

For the last 8 months or so we have been inundated by the Administrations claims that voter ID laws are discriminatory at best and racist at worst...

Yet,on Friday, June 8th, those wishing to attend a book signing event by the First Lady must purchase a copy of the First Lady's book at the location and leave it at the store, according to the employee. At the same time, customers must also submit their social security number and show an official photo ID (driver's license, passport) to a Secret Service agent, and they will be issued a wristband to the First Lady's event on June 12.( Emphasis added)

So, it's possibly racist to have to show a photo ID to cast a ballot, but not only must you show a photo ID, but you must also give out your Social Security number in order to have the First Lady sign her book for you ?!?

I do understand that there security concerns whenever a political figure makes a public appearance, but these measures seem to be far more than required; and if a figurehead of a stance that considers it "racist" to show ID to vote, yet requires even more stringent requirements just to be able to bask in her presence...well doesn't anyone else see the disconnect here?

Quote of the Day

“Today, we need a nation of Minutemen. Citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.” John F. Kennedy

Can you imagine the outcry if ANY Democratic office holder said anything like this today, much less the President ?

Instead, the Democratic Party seems hell bent on taking all our 2nd Amendment rights away; even going so far as to use the United Nations as cover for their actions. The Republicans aren't that far away from this mindset either, but at least they aren't actively pursuing that goal at present.

How far we have fallen.....

At Last

I hope SOMEONE noticed I haven't been around for a considerable space of time (though I sincerely doubt it).

Seems a particularly vicious virus took hold of my computer, and seeing as our coffers are particularly empty right now; repair work was low on the "to get things done" list.

But now it's back up and somewhat running, so I can again grace you with my thoughts on events of the day (worth about as much as a cashmere sweater is to a dog, I know :) )

My tv still isn't working at full speed either, so I'm somewhat limited as to current events, but the one thing I was pleased to learn about was that Scott Walker not only survived his recall election, but that he won it with over a 7 point margin...I thought that it would be a lot closer than that, given Wisconsin is such a Blue state and that the Unions have such a strong hold there.

It was like a super cold glass of water after having spent three days in the desert to hear that Mr. Walker won so handily.

Before the election, the Progressives made out that this was going to be a turning point against the 'vast right wing conspiracy' and that all would be sunshine and Skittles for the Working Man; once that evil Rethuglican, Walker, was booted out, and that the Unions would once again regain their power to provide for the "little guy'; so convinced that this was self evident, and was almost a fait acccompli; the National Progressive machine contributed very little in the way of support and/or money, in the surety that their Union arm could handle this simple little task...and they have had a rude awakening.

The People have started to awaken and look around and see just what has been going on, and they don't much like what they see.

Of course, now that they've lost this round, they don't consider this little dust-up important at all (probably because to acknowledge what really happened is to rock the foundations of their whole world view).

They lost in one of their own secure bastions, and in one of the most Pro-Union states in America...against a moderate Union reformer.

Scott Walker has shown the Progressive litany for the sham that it is; in only 16 months he has turned the economy of Wisconsin around: taking as multi- BILLION dollar state debt town to just over a three MILLION dollar debt (are you watching, Mr President?; this is what a LEADER does), he has put the State Pension Fund back on a sustainable (albeit a lower level of compensation) base.

The Unions were infuriated by this, after all, what right did a State Governor have in cutting their cash cow ?!? Didn't he realize that he was supposed just raise the taxes of every resident in the State to support their ever increasing hunger ? How DARE he oppose Public Union compensation at 2 or 3 times (and ever growing) the level of private sector compensation, after all isn't everyone's goal to feed in ever growing amounts from the Public teat? Just tax more of those rich fat cats !

The gravy train ride is over, at least for the moment, in Wisconsin; now we can only hope and pray that this will translate onto the National scene as well.
