Since last week when the Obama Administration and its media were forced to acknowledge the bombing in Boston was a terrorist act NOT carried out by the TEA party or the Klu Klux Klan, but rather by adherent Muslims, we have heard a stream of verbal gymnastics trying to absolve the murderers and somehow blame America for the carnage in Boston.
We’ve heard from the Muslim apologist crowd – bearded fake intellectuals with pipes, elbow patches and the like – speaking in a halting meter to make it seem like every word is worth carving on Mount Rushmore.
Their sophistry, saying “who radicalized them?” and “young men struggling to fit into a strange new culture” or “just young men trying to be heard” does us no good.
What we need now is truth not feel good, “all cultures have good and bad” relativism.
Only the truth can help us learn from what has happened – lies don’t cut it. The truth is these two punks fell for the lies in the Qur’an’s verses of the sword.
These verses told them to kill non Muslins (2:191-193) (2:244) (2:216) ( 3:56) and commit any number of criminal acts in the name of the so-called “religion of peace.”
The word “terror” is actually in the qur’an (surah 8-12) in the common meaning of the word: “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers…”
Surah 4:74 exalts Muslims to do battle with “non-believers” secure in the knowledge that if they are killed they will be rewarded in paradise, thus providing the grounds for educated Muslims to talk the uneducated Muslim into becoming suicide bombers.
In keeping with the general tone of subtle deception in the Qur’an “allah” orders faithful Muslims to kill and maim those who are enemies. Surah 5:33 says, “they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides…” This is why the ball bearing bombs were arranged so they would rip the legs off of the runners and spectators in Boston.
The Quar’an is filled with commands to lie, kill and steal to maim and enslave non-believers. The media won’t tell us this because it would raise the question of why we are making believe all of this is untrue.
In three minutes anyone can find this material on line. It is a certainty that those who tell us Islam is a “religion of peace” are lying and know they are lying. The question is always, what can we do about it?
There appears to be some fierce competition among school districts to offer the most morally offensive, age-inappropriate lessons imaginable.
A presentation, ostensibly focused on bullying, at Linden Avenue Middle School in New York included some unbelievable instruction that understandably outraged many parents.
With boys and girls in separate classes, the program revolved around gender and sexual identification. Some of the more egregious examples found in the curriculum included prompting girls to ask each other for same-sex kisses and instructing boys in the art of spotting sluts.
“I am her parent,” one concerned parent said. “Where does anyone get the right to tell her that it’s okay for her to have sex?”
Furthermore, she said college students who “were not licensed” taught the class and wondered why they were allowed to handle such delicate subjects with the impressionable middle schoolers.
District superintendent Paul Finch said the course and others like it are part of the school’s adherence to New York’s Dignity for All Students Act. Still, many individuals are shocked they were not made aware of the potentially disturbing subject matter being presented.
“The school is overstepping its bounds in not notifying parents first and giving us the choice,” another parent added. “I thought it was very inappropriate. That kind of instruction is best left up to the parents.”
Yet another parent said her 13-year-old son was advised by the class’ instructor to always keep a condom in his wallet and to identify women as sluts by, among other factors, their wardrobe.
“We don’t judge people like that in our family,” she said.
In their zeal to wage war on student bullying, instructors and administrators themselves become de facto bullies. Their targets are those young people being raised by traditional parents trying to instill in them a morality the left finds reprehensible and hopelessly outdated.
Aaron Klein once again helps us get to the heart of the tough issues. This time he questions Senator Rand Paul. It is a joy to listen to a real journalist with real questions.
One of the most specious and inane arguments in politics today is that the Constitution is an arcane, anachronistic document created by imperfect men, and that it is therefore illogical to interpret it literally. They assert that the founding fathers didn’t have a “crystal ball” and couldn’t have foreseen issues like privacy in the 21st century, and so those of us who believe the Constitution to be a social contract limiting the powers of government must be “out of our minds.”
The first of those arguments is a logical fallacy. The tu quoque fallacy asserts that since the founders were imperfect, whatever they may say or do is equally imperfect or questionable. That would be tantamount to saying that because a certain physics instructor is specious, illogical, and misinformed about history and our system of governance, that he’s equally inept and tenuous in physics. Such a conclusion is obviously faulty logic, and based on a false premise.
The second argument is equally misguided. The founders didn’t need a “crystal ball” to foresee 21st century challenges. A constitution is by definition, “a body of fundamental principles or established precedents according to which a state is to be governed.” Consequently, the founding fathers didn’t need to be aware of “privacy” issues, or the internet, or any historically contextual development that may prove intellectually taxing to those who presuppose in their unwarranted arrogance, that they should have.
The structure established by the Constitution created legislative bodies that could adapt to changing times, by passing laws to deal with such vicissitudes, while the foundation, or fundamental principles, could endure, protecting the individual over the presumed and evolutionary expansion of the “rights” of the state. Plus, provision for changing the text of that social contract was made through the amendment process, which has been done 27 times to date.
Our Constitution established a system of governance that could stand the test of time, as long as citizens valued freedom more than tyranny. A system that, if held fast to, would assure that no one person, or oligarchical self-anointed leaders, could become totalitarians in a republic so structured. And it included guaranteed rights and privileges, for the first time in history, not granted by a monarch, ruler, magistrate, or benevolent dictator, but acknowledged to have originated from deity for all men. This is perfectly illustrated by our current president’s admission that, “I am constrained by a system that our Founders put in place,” although there’s precious little evidence of such constraint.
Is it a perfect system? Obviously not, especially in light of our contemporary crony-capitalism, that corrupts government and capitalism. The founding fathers maintained that for the republic to endure, we must have a moral people, which is the only real anachronism from our founding era, casting the most ominous clouds of doubt over the perpetuity of the republic.
When it is argued that the Constitution is a “living” document, implication is made that the precepts and principles of the Constitution are not applicable to today and provides an excuse for all types of scurrilous and specious assertions for expanded government largesse at the expense of our freedom and our money. To say that the Constitution is a “living document,” hence, not to be taken literally, is akin to asserting that the Ten Commandments are really just “Ten Suggestions.” It also affords proponents of the “living document” theory latitude to pick and choose cafeteria-style, which rights established by the Constitution are legitimate or applicable today. Some like freedom of speech for themselves but not for those they disagree with, for example. And some absolutely detest the freedom to bear arms.
Judicial precedent and daily judicial decisions are judged against the basic principles and rights specified by the Constitution and statute to provide applicability to today’s milieu. In that way alone is it a “living document.” Statute is how the fundamental principles of the Constitution are codified in a changing social structure, but the Constitution provides the baseline.
James Madison, regarded as the Father to the Constitution, said, “There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” We have witnessed this over the generations since the founding of the country, and we see that process of “silent encroachment” of government on the freedom of the people accelerated over the past few years in a way never before witnessed. We see government dictating terms of property ownership, dictating terms of access to health care, and dictating terms of energy use and private consumption, for starters.
The Constitution is not a “living” document. The Founders were specific in their language and did not mince words. They meant what they said. It was written precisely to prevent the incursion of government into our lives to the extent that we see it occurring today proving it is not an anachronism. It is a social contract to assure and guarantee fundamental freedom and liberty for all generations of Americans, and its relevance is reasserted every time a new official is sworn into office, vowing to “uphold and defend the Constitution.”
The survivability of our republic is dependent upon a knowledgeable and informed electorate, committed to liberty. We need to be intimately familiar with our founding documents, especially the Constitution, and hold those accountable who seek to subvert the freedoms of those who are intended to have ultimate power in this republic: We the People!

Here is a big problem we have in America, the people flooding to our shores don’t like Americans and America. We welcomed these bombers into our country as refugees, and this is the thanks we get. America lets more people into our country than all other countries combined. How about we slow immigration down, not speed it up.
I find it pretty amazing that the Southern Poverty Law Center missed the entire communist plot to overthrow the United States. It didn’t take me that long to find the information about the communist revolution in Hawaii in 1949. Everything I ever wanted to know about a communist plot to overthrow the United States, was right there in the Saturday Evening Post, Feb. 2, 1952.
Everybody in America knew that the communists were trying to take over the Democratic Party.
The Communist Party of America began in the White community. These White “folks,” as Obama likes to say, wanted to bring civil rights to the ethnic minorities. However, their version of civil rights, is much different than the Constitution.
Their version of civil rights is totalitarianism. The benevolent State makes all the decisions for them. Frankly, minorities are better off in a monarchy.
One of the more clever tactics of communist organizers, is to accuse innocent White people of racism. You’re sitting there minding your own business, and some communist nut job comes up and starts accusing you of racism, because they don’t want to play into your agenda.
I was called a racist about a month ago, because I refused to sign a petition to recall Sheriff Joe Arpio. Communists have been showing up all over Phoenix with petitions, calling people racists if they refuse to sign. I had a shouting match with one of them, and attracted a lot of attention. The crowed started laughing, and he took his petition and left.
Now I have an entire communist cell following me around Phoenix. Several of the more brave communists came up and wanted me to explain why I am so vehemently against communists.
Why? I have friends who were Holocaust survivors, who described in detail what the communists did to them after they were freed from the camps. So anybody who wants to be a communist, better consider what just happened in Boston. Be prepared to watch the United States fall into factions and violence, because communists see the general population as “collateral damage.” Communists fuel hate.
I don’t see a single communist on the Hate Map. And frankly, I’ve heard some pretty hateful things about minorities coming from the mouths of White communists.
Either start putting the communists on the Hate Map, or stop asking for donations. And you can start with 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Bill Ayers.
Here are three questions we must ask in the wake of the bloody terror attack in Boston. No one in the media is asking these vital questions, so we had to do it.
I just went through this in re-instating my architectural license in AZ. They wanted me to provide college transcripts, proof of registration in previous states, proof of passing the national licensing exam, and 30 year professional experience (work) history, proof of citizenship, proof of Social Security registration, and government-provided photo ID (not necessary to vote in every state won by Barack Obama in the recent election) – all of which I had to provide 8 years ago upon being licensed initially in the state, and ALL of which is in my file IN THEIR OFFICE. The forms which they send to be re-completed are all available on-line, but cannot be filled out electronically. They have to be printed, filled in by hand (or typewriter!), scanned, printed, and mailed. (I was stunned yesterday that they let me email an additional form they requested from another state!) Meanwhile, the “supervisor” was attending a “conference” in San Francisco, or was it San Diego?
By the Way, just try telling them that your birth certificate is posted on your MySpace page, and let me know how that works out for you. Oh yeah, your’re not the guy with the Connecticut Social Security Number (who couldn’t pass the Federal Government’s own E-Verify system last year), and whose Selective Service Registration is a clear forgery (both departments refusing to provide proof of original documentation, while scurrying to destroy past records – all such actions a matter of public record). Anyway, you’re not the guy walking around with the Nuclear Launch Codes (the Nuclear Football) within 20 feet of you at all times (or was it meters?), so no big deal. Oops! I got that backwards. It isn’t a big deal for HIM, but it is for those of us who hire and pay him, and to whom HE is to answer. But saying all of this only makes me a “racist” and “birther” according to the media elites in BOTH parties.
No, you and I are just people who believe that under the Rule of Law, we are all EQUAL, even if we’re not an impoverished, government-assisted, transgender “male” (or lesbian), Muslim, or, at least non-Christian or non-Jewish (yes, lots of contradictions there) person of color. Too bad about that “document of negative liberties”…but that apparently only applies to angry white Christian males…like those who wrote that dusty old document (found recently in a trash bin behind the Capitol!).

It’s hard to think that there are those in our government who would have innocent lives sacrificed in order to further an agenda that only they know about. This type of thinking is called conspiracy thinking and is looked down upon by those on the left and the right side of our political landscape. However, some things just make you wonder.
Our FBI was warned by the Russian government in 2011 that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older brother of the two Boston Marathon bombers, was a potential threat and that our government should look into his activities. We hear from news sources that the FBI looked into this man and in the end found nothing that raised their eyebrows about his activities. This is almost unbelievable considering that less than two years later he his a terrorist killing innocent bystanders at a major sporting event.
As the media independent research on the affiliations of these two brothers reveal more and more ties to Al Qaeda, those who believe that our government has plans to keep us terrorized for their own ends continue to gain ammunition for their beliefs! Most people in this country fear the government intrusion that will ensue if they try to cheat on their taxes and with good reason.
The IRS has a history of foul dealings with our citizenry based on bad information or worse – no information. How much more would we fear the prying eyes of the FBI, the foremost investigative agency in the world if we had ties to radical Muslim operations because radical Islam is responsible for much of the terror in the world today.
Yet, our FBI is warned by a nation that is less than friendly with us, that one of their own has raised their suspicions about his political intentions in our country, has known Muslim connections and that we should be concerned about him, yet somehow, he escapes being put on a list that all police agencies have access to.
Imagine doing a web search today for how to make a pressure-cooker bomb, or how to make ricin. You would expect the FBI at your door within hours. So we should expect that when the FBI is given valid information about possible political activism from a person who is originally from Russia, has traveled back to Russia and now has Russia concerned, that they would take extra precautions in tracking this individual. But it didn’t happen. Before you pass judgement on those who believe in a government conspiracy against its own citizens, you should look at the evidence for it with an open mind.
The full implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) coming soon body slams the health care industry, the American economy and our liberties.
“We need to know what’s ahead and more importantly what we can do to survive ObamaCare,” according to Grassfire Nation with their very informative booklet “Hidden Dangers of ObamaCare.” What you know about ObamaCare is bad. What you don’t know is far worse. Families are already paying 14% more or $2,000 more a year. That is just for starters, and it does not begin until 2014.
The words of Frederick Douglass, (a slave, who was taught to read, that ran away up north and became an aide to Pres. Lincoln) spoken to inspire resistance to slavery in the mid-19th century, apply equally well to us today: “power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what many people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong, which will be imposed upon them and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
As we know from the Supreme Court ruling it means a massive tax increase with 21 new taxes. The “death panels” will be stripping you of control over your own health care decisions. Massive job losses estimated at 80,000 over 10 years, are predicted. Doctors will leave their practices and retire early. There will be a massive shortage of doctors, and of ones who will accept Medicare or Medicaid.
This is the largest tax increase ever imposed on a society. It will be a real disaster for America’s health care system for the nation’s fiscal future and for a limited government. Every American–young and old–will be severely impacted.
It means ObamaCare, the most destructive piece of legislation ever passed by the Democrat Congress–yet most of the dangers are unknown. In reality it could well shorten your very life. Believe it or not we have enjoyed the most envious health care system with the best doctors, hospitals, researchers and care ever seen in the world. Repealing and removing this behemoth will require one of the hugest political fights in the history of our country.
Soon people will wake up when they can’t get the care they need or are used to. And where does it all lead? Liberals plan on it leading to National Health Care, controlled completely by the government. Not only your health, but your very life will be at stake. It will become a quagmire and there may be no return.
We have to know what’s in store, not only on the 2,700 initial pages that nobody who voted for it had ever read, but now the hundreds of thousands of new pages of quasi-government regulations written by mainly the Secretary of Health and Welfare and her staff. It will create billions for Unions who voted for Obama and liberals. Many unions and others who voted for Obama have already received special exemptions. It will hike all premiums, politicize medicine so you and your Dr. will no longer make decisions. There will be real “death panels” for the elderly and affirmed, assaulting our life and liberty, –a financial boondoggle mess.
Obama promised this new health care plan would lower costs and improve access–but no fluke that it will fail to achieve that as this was Obama’s and the liberals plan all along. By making insurance unaffordable for everyone–it will become unavailable to most all. All that will be left is government centered–government run single payer Health Care, which is the plan all along. Then comes the control over everyone. All dictator controlled, socialist, fascist, communist countries have taken over the health care first. It must be repealed. What can do that? A Republican controlled House and Senate in 2014 is the only way, with millions of phone calls, letters, tweets, faxes, from their constituents, telling them to repeal it at once. Before it is too late!
