Here then, for one night only, each home throughout the English-speaking world should be a brightly lighted island of happiness and peace. Let the children have their night of fun and laughter. Let the gifts of Father Christmas delight their play. Let us grown-ups share to the full in their unstinted pleasures before we turn again to the stern tasks and formidable year that lie before us. Resolved that by our sacrifice and daring these same children shall not be robbed of their inheritance or denied their right to live in a free and decent world. Read Christmas During War
Wishing You and Your Family a Very Merry Christmas!

Three Navy Seals face court martial for capturing a top most wanted terrorist and he received a bloody lip. Read that full story here. ***PLEASE SIGN PETITION to dismiss charges against the Navy Seals
U.S. troops battle both Taliban and their own rules
The Times compiled an informal list of the new rules from interviews with U.S. forces. Among them:
• No night or surprise searches.
• Villagers have to be warned prior to searches.
• *ANA or **ANP must accompany U.S. units on searches.
• U.S. soldiers may not fire at the enemy unless the enemy is preparing to fire first.
• U.S. forces cannot engage the enemy if civilians are present.
• Only women can search women.
• Troops can fire at an insurgent if they catch him placing an IED but not if insurgents are walking away from an area where explosives have been laid.
And Most absurd of all, Obama and the leftists want terrorists, or enemy combatants, to receive Miranda rights. I cannot say THEIR Miranda Rights, because as American citizens they are OUR Miranda rights. How ludicrous is it for a foreigner, sworn to their government and in battle with our soldiers, to receive the rights in which our soldiers are dying to protect???
There is one little ray of sunshine in the domestic jihad issue.
James S Robbins of the Washington Times writes: Jihadists take note: The insanity defense may not work for you. On Tuesday, Naveed Haq, a self-styled soldier of Islam, was found guilty of aggravated first-degree murder and seven other counts related to a 2006 shooting rampage in Seattle. The prosecution successfully argued that Haq was a jihadi terrorist on a mission for martyrdom; the defense said that just proved he was crazy. Read More

Gay activist groups all over the country were involved in getting Parker elected in Houston. "This election has changed the world for the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgendered community," Parker said in her speech following the concession of her opponent. Basically, the whole reason she was elected, was for her sexual preference, or as most people see it, a perversion.
The gay community prefers to accuse religious groups, most notably Christians, for opposition to their agenda to spread their propaganda and indoctrination of our children. More correctly, this is NOT a religious issue. Many of whom oppose the gay agenda are not affiliated with any religious groups. It is easier to take on the victim role, as it were, if, however, you have a specific group in which to target, such as Christians, which openly stands against them.
The Gay Political Caucus has strived for decades to make America a Caligula kingdom. They work fervently to inject their perverted lifestyles into schools and communities, aided by supposed neutral groups, like ACLU, opposing any form of religious expression, but, standing on a "freedom" platform. It seems only their views should be "free"and promoted by politicians.
If one was to merely suggest a "Bible" day, or a "Christian" day in Public Schools, their career would be over. A "gay" day was invoked, against federal law, in schools without affording parents the opportunity to opt-out. In fact, legal action was threatened against those parents which chose to keep their children home.
A California Judge's response to the parents that objected to homosexual "lessons" for their children was, "They are bigots."
The parents were represented in California's Alameda Superior Court by Pacific Justice Institute. On Dec. 1, Judge Frank Roesch denied a motion to allow them to have their children excused from the lessons.
According to the group, Roesch blasted the parents for seeking enforcement of a provision of the California Education Code that gives parents a right to opt their kids out of health education.
Education Code Section 51240 allows a parent to have a student excused from instruction, "If any part of a school's instruction in health conflicts with the religious training and beliefs of a parent or guardian of a pupil."
Just as Islamic groups are continuously breaking laws and aided by politicians in their agenda, opposition to the (gay) agenda are viewed and treated as criminals. As in so many cases, political correctness has taken the place of laws on the books, without any congressional hearings.
In the '70's, talk show hosts and journalists exploited gay individuals and proclaimed how "proud" they were for their "coming out of the closet." It is a sexual preference (perversion); What was wrong with it staying in the closet? Or, in their bedrooms? Why is society graced with their perversion?
They counted on our apathy and political correctness to force the will and whims of a few on an entire nation...
Can you imagine demanding special rights based on your heterosexuality (and you are the majority) ?
Can you imagine heterosexual Joe Studdley running for office based on what a fantastic lover he is, as his only qualification???

Global-Warming Theology: The end is nigh, their god is dead! Belief in global warming had long had a tinge of theology about it, a form of cultism that adherents and defenders elevated to a holy crusade. Read more on (Theology)
The Nobel Prize should be turned over to the hackers... by Al, in a public ceremony.
When the “Cap and Trade” bill was introduced earlier this year, a swarm of scientists from around the world presented factual evidence to the contrary of Al Gore’s claim the world would end and Polar bears will die. Real, reputable, credible scientists pleaded the con of “global warming” with solid, proven facts. I presented videos, interviews, and articles disproving the theory the glaciers were dwindling. Unfortunately, however, most, even many Republicans, chose to believe money and power hungry politicians over science.
But, thanks to hackers, emails were intercepted which definitely and directly exposed the intent to deceive the American public. Whatever it took as long as it finally became accepted, the scam was revealed. A handful of Republicans called for an investigation as to the validity of the “end of the world” farce, which has netted Mr. Gore over $1 billion and a Nobel Peace Prize.
The “Cap and Trade” bill passed Congress with the help of several R.I.N.O.’s. The whole intent of the bill, as is with “Health Care Reform” and Union Labor legislation, is to grease the gears of the “Engine To Socialism”. A consorted effort between elitists, the politicians in their pockets, and corrupt labor bosses, was to gain complete control over large corporations and the American public.
It has been common knowledge for two decades our entitlement programs were robbed by corruption and being depleted at an accelerated rate, totally bankrupting Social Security in a few years. The Unions have been stealing from pension funds to promote their political agendas for years, also common knowledge. They have been “Robbing Peter to pay Paul” for sometime now, anticipating the day when they would have complete control over the nations workforce, without freedom of choice by Americans.
With both the government and the unions in bed together for the purpose of avoiding prosecution for theft of American’s money, they were confident their communist agenda would be reality very soon. With the help of Globalists with deep pockets and strings on virtually every politician in Washington, The New World Order appeared to be immanent. A financial crisis was in order. The decline of the American dollar on a daily basis, almost certainly showed promise toward a complete collapse. With most of the country wondering how they will eat tonight, the global dollar would be introduced with little to no objection.
A crisis was the only answer to cover up the vast corruption. Make people wonder where their next meal is coming from and ANYTHING will be acceptable. Knowing their would be some friction, the leftists began smear campaigns against every conservative and public airwaves which had an opposing view. Deny, deny, deny. Call names and throw dirt through every medium possible while RUSHING as many bills and issues possible so as to keep everyone so busy they cannot catch up. Right in the middle of one campaign, another issue pops up, and another, and another, until it was virtually impossible to focus on both hands. “Watch this hand” while I rob you with the other.
The scoundrels are being exposed. Charges will be brought against some to “get release” but the real perpetrators, like Al Gore, will slither off and fade away, as they will become a total embarrassment to those of whom were taken in and will save their pride any further assault.
I am confident people will continue to awaken and discern from those who truly care and those looking to line their pockets with our lives, and our children's future. In addition to returning all awards and at least (performing) an official public apology, I am calling for restitution to be made concerning all moneys gained through this hoax, especially tax gains and support.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu weakened Israel this week. And he did so for no good reason.
Thursday’s headlines told the tale. The day after Netanyahu bowed to US pressure and announced a total freeze on Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria for ten months, Yediot Aharonot reported that the Obama administration now wants Israel to release a thousand Fatah terrorists from prison.
The Americans also want Israel to allow US-trained, terror-supporting Fatah paramilitary forces to deploy in areas that are currently under Israeli military control. Moreover, the Americans are demanding that Israel surrender land in the strategically crucial Jordan Valley to Fatah.
And these are just American preconditions for starting negotiations with the Palestinians. According to Yediot, if those talks ever begin, the White House will demand that Israel accept a Palestinian state in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza and agree to ethnically cleanse all the areas of Jews.
So far from winning American support or at least causing the White House to ease its bullying, US President Barack Obama sees Netanyahu’s decision to implement a militarily irrational, bigoted policy of prohibiting Jews from building in Israel’s heartland as a drop in the bucket.

Abbas says Israeli settlement freeze not enough... CARACAS, Venezuela — Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas dismissed an Israeli plan to halt new construction of West Bank settlements as insufficient on Friday, saying it won't be enough to restart peace talks.
The Palestinian president said during his first visit to Venezuela that "we can't accept the current Israeli government's concept for the negotiations."
The Palestinian leader was to meet on Friday with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who has stepped squarely into Middle East politics this week by hosting both Abbas and the president of Iran.
Chavez denounced Israel as "a murderous arm of the Yankee empire" during a visit Wednesday by Iran's Mahmoud Ahmanuhtjob.
Chavez has been strengthening ties with Israel's adversaries while trading verbal barbs with Israeli President Shimon Peres, who predicted last week in Argentina that the people of Venezuela and Iran will soon get rid of their leaders.
All the terrorists around the world are boldly meeting and strengthening ties with dictators in our own part of the world, supported by their biggest ally, Barack Hussein Obama.
Chavez and Ahmanuhtjob have business relations in over 120 projects. Why would Iran worry about U.S. sanctions?

The True Reason for Thanksgiving
Over time, myths and distortions have arisen, twisting the reason for Thanksgiving Day. For starters, the Pilgrims did not hold their harvest festival to thank the local Indians. Unfortunately, this myth is often perpetuated in schools and textbooks. Many children and adults now believe we celebrate the help given to the Pilgrims by Native Americans. If the Pilgrims were to visit this Thanksgiving, they would be shocked.
The Pilgrims focused on thanking and praising God for His love, for all that He had done for them, and for the freedom they enjoyed in the New World.
A glimpse into the history of Thanksgiving Day gives a greater appreciation of this great American holiday. Even earlier than the Pilgrims, people of faith set aside days for prayer and thanksgiving to God. Many times rather than a feast, they were a time dedicated to prayer.
It may come as a surprise to some that the word holiday is actually from old English compound word combining holy and day. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines holiday as “a day set aside for special religious observance.”
The ancient Hebrews had many days set apart to worship, praise and thank God. Passover and Succoth are holy days of gratitude to God for His loving-kindness and deliverance from Egypt.
Early Americans often held days of thanksgiving in the various states and commonwealths. Washington and Madison each proclaimed a day of thanksgiving while president.
In October 1789, President George Washington signed a proclamation requested by Congress “to recommend to the people of the United States a Day of Public thanksgiving and Prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to form a government for their safety and happiness.”
Washington then assigned the twenty-sixth day of November “to be devoted by the people… to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be;” and to “all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country…”
It was to remember, Washington said, God’s “manifold mercies” and providence, “for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed,” and, “in general, for all the great and various favors” He gave them.
In the dark days of the Civil War in 1863, Lincoln proclaimed, by Act of Congress, an annual National Day of Thanksgiving following a letter campaign promoting the idea by Sarah Hale. As a mother, widowed at the age of 34, Hale was the editor of the first woman’s magazine in America and campaigned for over 40 years to make Thanksgiving a national holiday.
Lincoln’s words are especially timely now with our soldiers fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, “I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign land, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November…as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.”
He recommends that we “commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers” from the war and to look at the many blessings we have been given by God including “which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come… Almighty God...”
“…But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagine, by the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessing were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own...”
In conclusion, Lincoln says, “It has seemed to me fit and proper that God should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people…”
Even amongst the pain, upheaval and difficulties of the Civil War, the nation came together for a day of thanksgiving and praise.
Sadly, someone erroneously wrote in Wikipedia, “Thanksgiving Day is … a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general…While perhaps religious in origin, Thanksgiving is now primarily identified as a secular holiday.” Maybe this is true for some Americans, but certainly not for all. And definitely not the way the “Mother of the American Thanksgiving,” Sarah Hale visualized it.
Hale wrote, “Let this day…be the grand Thanksgiving Holiday of our nation, when the noise and tumult of worldliness may be exchanged for the laugh of happy children, the glad greeting of family reunion, and the humble gratitude of the Christian heart.”
And Edward Martin wisely reminds us, "Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow."
The idea of an eco-friendly and sustainable Thanksgiving is another liberal plot to suck the joy out of life. Read more...

Tom Burnett Sr:
A military trial will do the same thing--give them justice, give them a chance to talk--but not out, you know, in the public.Nicely framed and edited by KSTP Minneapolis:
Second Burnett interview here. If only our government, with all its resources, could make 1/100th the sense of this honest patriot, but honesty and patriotism seem to be completely absent from the Obama/Holder makeup. Mr. Burnett says he will fight.
Mr. Burnett is also trying to stop the Park Service from planting a giant Mecca-oriented crescent atop his son's grave
Video expose of what was originally called the Crescent of Embrace design, contains footage of Mr. Burnett and Alec Rawls (author of this blogburst post) at last year's Memorial Project meeting:
Please sign our petition and let your Representative know of your disdain for placing an homage to Islam over the memorial of the heroes that gave their life to protect us from the result of Islam. This is SICK!!!

A 15-year-old Egyptian girl, Dina el-Gohary, has written an emotional appeal to President Obama asking him to use his influence to save her father, Maher el-Gohary, who is being persecuted for his beliefs. ... Dina and her father are Christian converts in a part of the world where conversion can mean death. Read more...
In order to claim misguided Christian votes, Obama claimed to be a Christian during his Presidential campaign. Immediately afterward, he began making disparaging remarks regarding Christians and let it be known he stood for Socialism and genocide of infants. All this is most ungodly, but, it did not keep him from collecting vast support from those of whom profess Christianity, but, have not a clue as to what that means.
Obama's clear stand against Israel and actions taken which can only be regarded as anti Christ, would strongly indicate to a true Christian he is anything but a Christian. He claims he has never been a muslim but supports jihad propaganda all the way, and fluently quotes the Koran. In his book, "Audacity of Hope", Obama makes it very clear, "If things begin to get ugly, I will defend Islam."
So, let us see if Obama takes the politically strategic "photo-op" mentality on this plea from Dina, in regards to saving her Christian father in a muslim state. The "Peace and love" religion (claim of the apostates) is all about killing the infidel and the Jew, the two least supported people of Barack Hussein Obama.

Stand Up America USA
As a conservative, believer in the Constitution, outspoken Christian, and in general concern for your future, my future, and the future of our families, I write the following:
It is time to come together, united in our marching, standing, sign making, and speaking out efforts. It is time to tell our State officials that we will not accept excuses and silence from them on this issue any longer. I am SICK of watching Obama parade around the world like he is some great American leader. Barack Hussein Obama is a traitor to America. He is THE brown nosing, gutless, coward of the world.
Obama is not eligible to be in our White House. The White House belongs to the free people of the United States of America. Liberals throw the race card and personally attack those of us who stand firmly and speak out. They can not attack us any other way. They have no facts to back them up or support their claims. We are the majority. It is high time we act as the majority and in one voice, first to our State leaders, tell government that we will not be silenced for any reason on this issue.
Per the Constitution of the United States of America, Obama is not a natural born citizen. Obama’s father was never a United States citizen and Obama does or has in the past held a dual citizenship, which also makes him, by law of the Constitution of the United States of America, ineligible to be seated in the White House as the President of the United States of America. It is this that we must protest. We make enough noise with enough numbers that we will not be able to be ignored any longer. We get Obama removed from office and all law passed since he has been illegally in the White House will go out with him. Nazicare will be no more. Cap and Trade will not be an issue.
With Obama gone, we can then move on with restoring our freedoms and liberties. We must act as a united people for the cause. We must act now. We must act on faith. We must be relentless in our quest. Our freedoms, liberties, and our very lives depend on the removal of this traitor. He has to be stopped. With one voice, we can accomplish this objective either here within our own State Capitols or in combination of rallying our States to the cause then moving in on a major march in D.C. together and with the support of the numbers to get the job done.
It is my belief that there are reasons why the Bible states the time shall not be known for the rapture and other things which are coming. My belief is that when God gave us, the people he created, life, and free will, those of us who have chosen to walk with Him can make a huge difference in God’s time table as to when things come to pass. We have the freedom to choose to march, organize, and protest the tyrant in the White House. We have the freedom to change things for the better once again. Now we just have to get together on the reason, make a stand, and refuse to back down.
Points to march on:
1. Obama’s father was never a citizen of the U.S.A. and Obama is ineligible to be in the White House.
2. Obama has or does hold a dual citizenship and is ineligible to be in the White House.
OBAMA RELEASE YOUR RECORDS!
OBAMA IS INELIGIBLE!
WE, THE PEOPLE, WANT OBAMA’S RECORDS!
You get the idea. We want to keep this simple, effective, and very loud. We want and need to be one voice. Be silent no more. In marching on all 50 State Capitols, we will not be able to be ignored. Something will have to be done, finally. If government continues to ignore the facts and the truth, I am ready and willing to withdraw myself from the union. I can not longer take the TYRANT IN CHIEF selling me out and waiting on a genocide to happen right here in America. We are at the door. Do we cross the threshold or do we stand?
I INTEND TO STAND!
God bless all those who have worked against healthcare, cap & trade, etc. I commend you all on your efforts and feel your frustration. If we get Obama out, his crapcare and taxes go with him.
I would like to hear from people in all 50 states who are willing to start promoting this locally and within their own state. You can message me on Facebook in my inbox, message me in chat, or even just send me a regular email to firstname.lastname@example.org, my regular personal email address is email@example.com but I have a spam filter on this email and it would be better to send messages to the FAM email address.
May God bless you all and have a GREAT week. We need a date and we need to plan on marching on our State Capitols soon, but it should be done in all 50 states on the same date.
Thank you and God Bless America,

Two Army Majors could not be anymore different from each other, but, both connected by the same Executive directive - hide the truth. One a patriot, the other as anti - American as one could be. One disgraced, the other shown every consideration and rationalization possible, but, not in the same perspective you would imagine.
Major Stefan Frederick Cook, Army Ranger, completed two tours in Iraq, and saw battle in Desert Storm. Career man, Cook was scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan as a contractor. Cook stated he looked forward to serving there. After much consideration, Major Cook was led by his conscience and sense of duty to the American Constitution in that there was great controversy whether the man he was serving under was actually eligible to be the Commander-in-Chief of the nation’s military.
All military personnel should indeed be concerned whether they are taking orders from a legitimate leader. In the event he was not found to be Constitutionally capable of holding the office, every order they carried out would be invalid and technically could make them war criminals. To date, Barack Hussein Obama has spent over $2 million for a team of lawyers to keep sealed any identifying records including birth certificate, school records, passports, College records, Bar exam, Senate files, and medical records.
Obama has made several statements in the past which collaborated with other witnesses statements indicating he was not born in this country. Regardless, both his parents were not natural born citizens of the United States. This alone would render Mr. Obama ineligible to hold the office of President under our Constitutional Law.
Major Cook did what most would not have the nerve to do - he filed a law suit asking Mr. Obama to present any physical proof that he is indeed the legitimate Commander-in-Chief. This is something which should have been taken care of before Obama even ran for the office, but, it was not. It is not just a desire of skeptical citizens, it is a legal requirement, of which many choose to ignore. Laws are in place for a reason. This law was implemented by our founding fathers who were fully aware of the consequences of a foreign interest being capable of infiltrating our Republic and forcing their agenda. The writers and signers of the Constitution were very intelligent. They were seeking protection of a free Republic for a people they would never know. A people two hundred years later that would scoff at the laws they put into place for their protection...
The response to Major Cook’s request for evidence of eligibility was the military released him almost immediately (72 hours) from his orders, rather than comply. Since he was no longer obligated, Major Cook’s case was dismissed. As I was doing related research, I came across many instances where the public feedback was insulting, at best, and in most cases down right vulgar. The common consensus was Major Cook was a coward, a sort of draft dodger, if you will, just “Trying anything to get out of combat.” Of course, the insults came from people who never served a day. The Defence Dept. also pressured Cook's boss to fire him from his civilian job, according to the CEO of the company.
It never ceases to amaze me how vulgar and immoral liberals are, for the most part. The rants all over the internet regarding Sarah Palin, Orly Taitz, and all conservatives in general, is disgusting and vile. They have no legitimate arguments for the facts, so they resort to pervasive language. There truly is a huge separation of integrity and decency between the two political halves of the United States.
Major Nidal Malik Hasan, also a career man, was a psychiatrist, recently assigned to Fort Hood, in Texas. Hasan was responsible for counseling the men and women returning from tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hasan was also a lifelong muslim (not converted as many reports have stipulated). It was also commonly known his hatred for Americans. For almost a year, that we know for sure, he was making many anti - American and violent jihadist comments to other personnel. His commanding officers were aware of his rants, and even the FBI “had an interest” in him.
Hasan had many terrorist contacts and communiqué since 9/11, including the mosque where several of the 9/11 attackers received their counseling. The mosque and its leader is still allowed to function in our country, even after we have obtained intelligence regarding their involvement in the Islamic jihad. Hasan was also allowed to continue his service in the Army, even after is anti - American propaganda seemed to have stepped up since Obama took office. At the same time, Obama appointed Hasan to assist the transition team in the Department of Homeland Security.
On Thursday, November 5, during a reception for a group of returning soldiers from Iraq, Hasan entered the facility armed with two semi-automatic handguns and dressed in Islamic garb, yelling, “Allah Akbar.” He proceeded to open fire, killing 14 and wounding 30 of the unarmed soldiers. As none of the personnel on the base was armed, the jihadist was eventually brought down by local police officers.
The response from Mr. Obama concerning the incident was almost non existent. In a brief public appearance he made a ’by the way’ mention of the incident after several unrelated and insignificant announcements. His main concern was that nobody rush to judgment in that Hasan’s actions had anything to do with Islam. I was immediately reminded of the rush to judgment on the part of Mr. Obama in the Crowley/Gates affair, where he slandered an innocent white police officer over his black racist friend, before he knew any facts in the case. Obama never acknowledged the true racism in that situation. And he refuses to acknowledge the truth behind Major Hasan’s actions, as well.
The Senate had initiated a probe into the events leading up to the Hasan terrorist attack on our military. There was some in Congress that wanted to know how he managed to carry out such a blatant agenda. Who dropped the ball? Why was all the anti - American rhetoric from Hasan ignored? Friday, Mr. Obama instructed Congress to drop their investigation, once again attempting to keep the truth from Americans.
One must be reminded of the statement Obama made in his book “Audacity of Hope” where he makes it very clear, “When things get ugly,” he will “Defend Islam.”
After much criticism of the Bush administration for how it handled protecting Americans after 9/11, even in light of no further attacks being perpetrated, Obama knows a conceived terrorist attack while he is in office would be devastating. How would he explain his incapability of keeping us safe after all the criticism of Bush, who did keep us terrorist free for eight years?
If he acknowledged Hasan’s attack was jihad, how would Obama explain his support for Islam? Instead, the left relentlessly projects Hasan’s actions as though he was a stressed soldier who snapped, just like Janet Napolitano warned in her report released to law enforcement several months ago. The ironic issue which overwhelmingly goes unnoticed, as did Major Cook’s spotless service to his country, is that Hasan has never seen any action. Rather, Hasan has only had an office job with all the perks. It was only recently he was scheduled to be deployed to Afghanistan, where he feared he would be forced to fight other jihadists. This is where is loyalty remained.
I had a friend applied for a low security level communications job in the Navy. They sent intelligence officers out to our neighborhood to interview residents near where he grew up, to find out what kind of kid he was, whether he ever did anything mischievous. He was investigated to the hilt. If your Islamic, and a known enemy of the state, we wouldn’t want to offend, even if it costs our national security. In fact, come to think of it, Obama wouldn’t even qualify for the Navy job.
The overwhelming response from the general public??? Every empathetic (and sickening) excuse under the sun. Hasan has been made out to be a victim in most liberal media and internet forums.
Mostly, people are defending Islam as just another religion which should be respected. They say, "You cannot judge the whole religion by the actions of a few bad ones." Those who say these things, have no idea what they are talking about. They are merely repeating the ignorant rhetoric they have heard. THEY HAVE NOT READ THE KORAN!!! Or, they have read the Koran and know what is says, but, they lie for jihad, inorder to spread the false rhetoric.
The latest ridiculous statement is, "All jihadists are muslim, but, not all muslims are jihadists." This comment could not be more irrelevant to the scheme of things. It is comparing apples with oranges. Those of whom claim to be muslim, but, not jihad, are not Koran believing muslims and it is a puzzle as to why they call themselves muslim. They make up a very small percentage of the muslim population. As apostates, they will eventually have to answer to their own, as it means death.
All Koran believing muslims are Islamic jihad and follow sharia law. This accounts for all the "honor killings" which have escalated here in the U.S. as of late. Barack Obama knows all this, yet he hides it and deceives the public. He is very well versed in the Koran, and well aware of its violent agenda against Israel and America. It is the agenda of this administration to promote sharia law in the U.S. so it would not go over too well if muslims are seen in a 'bad light'.
The Defense Department continues to duck the hard questions about the Fort Hood massacre. As many as eight Army officers might take the fall for not reporting Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan's abnormal behavior in the years leading up to his Nov. 5 terrorist rampage. But as Bill Gertz reported yesterday on the front page of The Washington Times, fear of being perceived as insensitive played a critical role in those officers keeping Maj. Hasan in the force. There's no sign the military's politically correct climate is about to change. (Read more)

Elected and Appointed U.S. Government Officials Who Violate Their Oath of Office and the Constitution Must Resign or Be Impeached
By Paul E. Vallely MG, US Army (Ret)
The Declaration of Independence states in part: “…That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness...”
The arrogance of power in the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government has reached epic and intolerable proportions across the nation. The U.S. President, Vice-President, cabinet members and senior appointed officials, members of Congress, and members of the Supreme Court take the following sacred oath of office:
“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
Sadly, we have seen most of them violate their oath. Fraud, lying and corruption are rampant in the institutions of government and some have engaged in treasonous activities. They know who they are, as do the people.
The Articles of Confederation were replaced with the Constitution which granted the federal government enough authority to cultivate, promote and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity but not enough authority to destroy it. The balance between governmental authority and individual liberty was understood and accepted. Federal power was confined to that which was specifically enumerated in the Constitution and no more.
That power was further limited as it was spread among three federal branches – the legislative, executive and judicial. Beyond that, the power remained with the States and, ultimately, the people. In 1789, Thomas Jefferson was overheard saying to James Madison, “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves therefore are its only safe depositories.”
In 1861, Abraham Lincoln’s issued this warning in his inaugural address, “Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one. This is a most valuable and sacred right – a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world.”
The U.S. Constitution, Article One, Section Five, Clause II and the 10th Amendment to the Constitution provide the constitutional authority for the President, Vice-President, cabinet appointees, members of Congress and members of the Supreme Court to be removed from office for failure to properly discharge their constitutional duties and responsibilities.
The U.S. Constitution allows the citizens of their country to freely elect their government leaders. Americans elect the president and vice-president every four years, members of the House of Representatives every two years, members of the Senate every six years. Members of the Supreme Court are nominated by the president and receive lifetime appointments if confirmed by the Senate. And political appointees in the executive branch serve at the pleasure of the President if confirmed by the Senate.
“We, the People” have had enough of this current government. They, not the American People, are on a socialist and treasonous death march and bankrupting the country. We have watched the President and members of his Cabinet, Vice-President, members of Congress, and members of the Supreme Court, defile our nation’s founding documents and sacred principles – and violate their sacred oath of office.
These are extraordinary times. “We, the People” cannot necessarily wait for the next round of elections because of the urgent and deteriorating national security and economic conditions. The time has come to call on these public servants to put the interests of “We, the People” above their own self-interests by resigning from their government positions immediately. In the event no resignations and impeachment proceedings are forthcoming, the American people can assist them by voting them out of office starting in 2010.

The naive nuclear hopes of Mr. Obama represent an elaborate fiction. What we require, instead, is a model of international relations that reflects, realistically, the passions and principles of our potential enemies. Such a model would be drawn not from Mr. Obama's idealized visions, but from the informed awareness that America's multiple enemies may still remain face down to peace with the United States.
When Pericles delivered his Funeral Oration, with its praise of Athenian civilization, his perspective was inner-directed. Pericles remarked: "What I fear more than the strategies of our enemies is our own mistakes." Later, in Rome, Cicero inquired: "What can be done against force without force?" Today, a president of the United States must still understand that in a world of international anarchy, foreign policy must aim at maintaining and improving his country's power position.
America needs nuclear weapons for deterrence. We need to continually upgrade and refine these weapons, as well as their associated strategic doctrine. We need to recapitalize our national nuclear deterrent and ensure that we can maintain all essential global power projection capabilities. This means, at a minimum, a re-examination of nuclear targeting doctrine, this time with regard to current threats from other countries and their proxies. It also means preparing for a world in which both our national and subnational enemies may sometimes be irrational. In all of these matters, the president's current glide path to a nuclear-free world is counterproductive.
A key concern of U.S. strategic doctrine must still be pre-emption. Like it or not, there are major threats on the horizon that may still call for anticipatory self-defense. In our uncertain strategic future, where enemy rationality cannot always be assumed, and where the essential effectiveness of national ballistic missile defense would be problematic, the only alternative to an American pre-emption could be surrender or defeat.
Sea power still has its place. Future enemy missile launches could come from container ships off our shores. Launches against Israel could likely also come directly from Iran, so a modernized U.S. anti-missile fleet capability should be positioned in the Mediterranean, Red and Arabian seas. For Israel, its current Dolphin class submarines may have to be upgraded, and so, too, may its Arrow-centered system of ballistic missile defense.
A nuclear threat to American cities need not come from enemy missiles. It could also come from cars and trucks, and from ships used only for "dirty-bomb" dispersals. Ballistic missile defense would be of no use against any such attacks.
Could we make enemy states and their surrogates believe that proxy acts of nuclear terrorism would elicit an unacceptable retaliation against them directly? Perhaps, but functional answers can never emerge from a plan for global nuclear disarmament.
America's strategic doctrine must rest on the idea that threats of war and terrorism may now derive from a genuine "clash of civilizations." This does not mean Mr. Obama is wrong in his expanding emphasis on negotiation and diplomacy, but only that he should also acknowledge that some of our principal enemies will be unresponsive to traditional deterrent policies. These enemies, sworn to expectations of jihad, will be animated not by the ordinary secular promises of hegemony, wealth and privilege, but by power over death.
Some of these enemies could come to resemble the suicide bomber writ large. Such enemies may not concede an inch to proposals for compromise, coexistence and peaceful settlement.
An act of nuclear terrorism against the United States could have overwhelming consequences. To prevent the "Ryder truck scenario," which could involve either a radiological or authentic chain-reaction nuclear weapon, Mr. Obama's strategic policy would have to hold the state sponsors accountable. This policy should initially offer these states a suitable diplomatic option.
If any such outreach should fail, the president must then make clear that any terrorist proxy nuclear explosion in this country would certainly elicit an unacceptably damaging retaliation. This means that we should (1) unambiguously target these sponsor states; and (2) plainly and regularly "war-game" retaliatory options with national command authorities.
Nuclear weapons are not going to go away. Understanding this, Mr. Obama must quickly begin to construct a broad and coherent strategic plan from which specific policy options can be drawn. This compelling plan should prepare to deal effectively with both our national and subnational adversaries, and should take into account that some of them might sometimes be willing to act irrationally.

Senator Joe Lieberman stated "if" this was a terrorist attack, it will have been the worst executed on our soil since 9/11. He went on to say it certainly appears that way. Hasan had been under investigation by the FBI for six months, due to anti American, pro terrorist comments he had made on a website and to others in the military. In fact, Hasan was recommended for counseling. I had a friend who applied for communications in the Navy. Before he could be approved, intellegence officers even visited neighbors to see what kind of kid he was. How could Hasan proceed as an officer (Major)?
By RALPH PETERS :
We just saw the worst terror attack on America since 9/11. And Obama couldn’t adjust his schedule to support our grieving troops.
Instead, we got his subtle defense of the perp: Unwilling to use the word “terror,” let alone the phrase “Islamist terror,” Obama warned us not to “rush to judgment.”
A Muslim fanatic, known to the FBI as a fan of suicide bombers and to colleagues as an opponent of our government, coolly buys weapons, heads to a military facilityhe knows will be packed with unsuspecting soldiers, waits for the crowd to thicken, then shouts, “Allah is great!” and guns down 51 patriots, calmly reloading among the dead and dying.
But don’t rush to judgment!!!
Imagine if, instead of Fort Hood, the massacre had gone down at a mosque in Detroit — carried out by a maddened Christian or Jew. Obama would’ve been aboard Air Force One before the pilots had time to file a flight plan and he would’ve been on site before the gun smoke cleared, hugging and boo-hooing and dispensing stirring rhetoric for the evening news.
But go out of his way to rally our butchered troops? Not a chance. It’s not like they’re real human beings with Ivy League degrees. When Obama got word of the attack, he didn’t even lose his fabled cool.
Obama may be shamed into visiting Ft. Hood at some point, but his priority since Thursday has remained socializing American medicine. What happens in Texas, stays in Texas.
Move on? Yes we can!
Of course, this act of Islamist terrorism has been an inconvenience to a president whose administration insists there’s no such thing. Those dead and wounded soldiers are such an embarrassment. If only a Baptist or Lutheran had been the shooter, things would’ve been so much tidier.
What’s next? The White House is going to bring heavy pressure on the FBI, through Attorney General Eric Holder, to play down investigative results confirming that Maj. Nidal Hasan was motivated by his Muslim beliefs.
Instead, we’ll hear even more about the “harassment” Hasan suffered as the media toe the line laid down by the vile lead editorial in Saturday’s New York Times and how this calculating terrorist contracted PTSD from his patients.
Let me kill the harassment myth right now: Political correctness rules in today’s Army. We even protect our enemies these days. Had any soldier harassed Hasan because of his Islamist nuttiness, that soldier would’ve disappeared faster than a Franklin on a Times Square sidewalk.
Any snarky remarks directed toward Hasan — if there were any — would’ve come in reaction to his railing against our government, our military’s mission and the monstrous injustice that, after grabbing an education in psychiatry worth hundreds of thousands of dollars from our military, he might have had to do his duty.
Far from being harassed himself, this creep was allowed to harass the soldiers he treated for stress disorders. According to colleagues, Hasan not only argued with his patients about our wars, but preached Islam to those under his care. (Just what troubled vets needed, no doubt.)
Prejudice? You bet. In this terrorist’s favor. Nobody in Hasan’s chain of command had the sense of duty to weed this pervert out. Why? Hasan would’ve accused them of discrimination. And the officer who brought charges against Hasan would’ve been the one whose career suffered.
Since writing on this travesty in the Post and speaking out on Fox News, I’ve been deluged with supportive messages — many from soldiers outraged at the politically correct treatment of this terrorist by the media, by senior military leaders — and by the president.
How many more Americans have to die, at home and in war, before our president admits that there is, indeed, such a thing as Islamist terror? Will he ever admit that it played a role in the tragedy at Fort Hood?
Not a chance. Islam’s a religion of peace. America’s the problem. And don’t you forget it.

Tens of thousands of people from across the country made a "House call" on the west side of the Capitol yesterday. These Americans traveled to Washington to register their objections to the mammoth government health care bill that Democrats are rushing through Congress. The size and spirit of the rally were a testament to the explosion in grass-roots activism opposed to the expansion of government under President Obama's and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's watch. The silent majority is silent no longer.

God Bless Our Veterans and their Families America
By Paul Vallely MG US Army (Ret)
The 11th of November is remembered as the day when the First World War officially ended, with the signing of the Armistice by the Germans – on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year 1918; certainly a whole lot of 11s to make this significant day difficult to forget. Initially, the day was commemorated as Armistice Day, as proclaimed by the President of the United States Woodrow Wilson in 1919, a year after the historic day.
As other wars since the First World War came and went, it became apparent that there are other veterans that need to be remembered other than those who served in World War I that ended on Armistice Day. It was a shoe store owner from Emporia, Kansas, Al King, who came up with the idea to expand the reach of Armistice Day to include all American veterans, regardless of which war they fought in. President Dwight Eisenhower signed this inclusion into a law on May 26, 1954, and on November 8 that same year, Armistice Day became known as Veterans Day.
On Veterans Day weekend, one might want to commemorate the sacrifices of our beloved American our beloved “Heroes” by taking time to enrich our knowledge on the lives that they lead and the challenges that they face. We love and cherish them so for their sacrifices and their service across the globe.
I will be joining Wayne Newton and John Dawson in Phoenix to celebrate and honor our Veterans this week. My wife, Muffin and daughter, Dana and I celebrate our SON, Scott, on this day whom we lost in Special Forces in April 2004.
God be with them ALL. Rest Easy!

The special election for the 23rd congressional district of New York ended with conservative candidate Doug Hoffman losing to Democrat Bill Owens. Dede Scozzafava, Republican, dropped out days before the election after much heat from conservatives surfaced regarding her being a R.I.N.O.(Republican in name only). Scozzy was for everything Obama, including, but, not limited to, Union 'Card Check', which made her a favorite of SEIU and A.C.O.R.N. .
Although Scozzafava was not actually in the race, her name remained on the ballot. She received almost 7,000 worthless, wasted votes. The margin of Owens win over Hoffman was just over 4,000 votes. It is at least fair to say the majority of the voters may not be represented as a result of the "Win", if just half of those votes to Scozzy were intended for a conservative agenda.
This is why it is so very important that voters actually know what they are doing when they arrive at the polls. It is called 'responsible voting'. In much the same way, Usurper Barry Soetoro, aka, Barack Husein Obama, won due to ignorance on the part of the majority which voted for him, many of the NY 23 voters probably did not have a clue as to what had taken place earlier in the week. Chances are, as many do, Republicans showed up to vote 'Republican' and that's what they thought they were doing.
Scozzy's name should have been removed from the ballot, if for no other reason. There have been no protests of the outcome, as of yet. Many will not voice an opinion as they are afraid of being screamed at, "SORE LOSER!!!" This is the most basic technique of the sore losing liberals, of whom are ready to destroy property and kill people when they lose, but, that's another subject.
Based on the ridiculousness of Scozzy being on the ballot and the very likely margin of error which would probably have gone to the Conservative, WHY WOULD THERE NOT BE A RUN OFF ELECTION??? Would it not be worth it to know that the majority of the people are being represented? I'm just saying...

What part of "...shall not be infinged" do you not understand?
The great pay-back has begun, and it's going to be ugly.
The gun grabbers in Congress are paying back the anti-gun extremists who put them and Barack Obama in office.
American citizens are facing an assault on our gun rights like we’ve never seen before. You see, H.R. 45 is Barack Obama’s gun control package, and it includes the most vile anti-gun measures he’s supported over the years.
H.R. 45 establishes a NATIONAL gun registry database of every gun and its owner -- for the whole county! Your private information and every gun you own would be in the system.
But that’s only if you succeed in buying a gun in the first place!
And since H.R. 45 dramatically increases requirements for firearms purchases far beyond those ever proposed, you just might find youself incapable of buying a firearm once this bill takes effect. But, it gets worse:
*The National Association for Gun Rights has a survey ready for you to complete, but I want you to understand just how dangerous this bill is before I give you the link. Please bear with me for a moment.
You see, H.R. 45 would establish a national gun registry database which would:
Increase requirements for firearms purchases, far beyond those ever proposed.
Create a national firearms registry overseen by the Federal Government.
Invoke Draconian penalties for bookkeeping errors related to the Federal Firearms Database. It gets worse though.
Sarah Brady and her allies in Congress want to force you to take a written exam to prove that you are "fit" to exercise your Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.
I'm sure I don't have to tell you that gun registration has historically laid the groundwork for total firearm confiscation. Citizen disarmament is the watchword of tyrants everywhere.
In fact, the most brutal dictators of the last century were famous for their gun registration and confiscation schemes.
But H.R. 45, Obama's National Gun Registry and Citizen Disarmament Act, is more than just a forced registration of all firearms in America.
The bill also makes it increasingly difficult to buy a gun in the first place.
Taken right out of Sarah Brady's Christmas wish list, H.R. 45 includes a laundry list of new restrictions on firearms purchases.
In addition to the outrageous national gun registration requirement, H.R. 45 also requires you to:
1. Pass a written examination to purchase a firearm.
2. Release your medical records -- including confidential mental health records -- to the government to get your "fitness" to own a firearm approved.
3. Observe a two-day waiting period before all firearms purchases.
4. Pay a gun tax of $25 or more on all firearm purchases.
Moreover, H.R. 45 bans all private firearms sales and maximizes penalties for minor clerical errors in dealing with the national gun registry.
The list goes on and on. It's enough to turn your stomach. We will even pay a fine for not immediately updating info, such as change of address. You can read the entire contents of the bill here.
I know I don't have to tell you, but these restrictions make a mockery of the Constitution. "The Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" might as well say: "You have no rights."
* Even the Supreme Court’s recent Heller decision guaranteeing an individual’s right to own a firearm doesn’t hamper Barack Obama’s agenda one bit.
In fact, it emboldens gun grabbers to pass legislation taxing ammunition, increasing registration requirements, and drastically limiting when, how and where you can use your firearm.
We must make this gun-grab expensive and politically painful for the enemies of freedom. If we do, they'll flinch ... and LOSE.
By mobilizing hundreds of thousands of grassroots gun owners across the country, the National Association for Gun Rights can put anti-gun politicians on the hot seat.

It's truly amazing how many can be fooled by the rhetoric of the Leftists. So many have died over the past 233 years so we can have the right to make the wrong decisions to undo the cause for which they died.
I have had many uninformed sheeple and zombies ask me, "What is wrong with New World Order?" After lengthy discussion, it was determined, without a doubt, they will have to experience it before they will ever understand just what they gave up.
Over the past generation, we have lost the concept of "freedom" through the dedicated propaganda of the elite to abolish it. Since this country was forged there has been a tyranny in the works, whose only obstacle is the Constitution of the United States of America. The objective is to make a relative few more powerful and wealthy than anyone can comprehend. The only way they can achieve this is to make the poor think they love them. In reality, they have always looked down on the misfortuned and ethnic groups. Diversity is what they preech, murder is what they practice. Human life will not stand in their way.
Many have known for years, the objective of the New World Order is to eliminate the middle class. There will be only the filthy rich or the dirt poor and all will rely on the government for their needs. This is totally acceptable to those persons without drive to be better. It is even more acceptable to those of whom have no concern for their children's future. Our decisions today will affect generations to come... It Cannot Be Undone!!!
As you fall in love with the phony elixir, the snake oil "Which will cure all", you must admit to yourself you only have concern for what you can get. You must be honest as you give away your rights (which you rationalize) and admit you have no respect for your armed forces and the casualties suffered. The millions of whom gave their lives over the years so you could extend your hand out screaming for freebies, is just a joke to you. Whatever you do, do not have the audacity to call yourself a patriot, as do many of you.
Barack Obama's camp was outraged when someone questioned his patriotism during the campaign, based on his communist connections. All the threatening information was available then, just as it is now. I see so many, everyday, posting things and commenting like it is news, when it was all readily available a year ago. But, praise the Lord, you got a black man elected, which was more important than any communist connections, or proof of his anti-American ideology. There are so many black men, and even a few black women, would be so much more beneficial, and a lot more experienced. But, Obama was (appointed) for his elite agenda.
If you voted for Obama, and you have finally come to your senses, or man enough to admit you made a tragic mistake, you can redeem yourself by 1) educating others, or 2) tearing up your voter registration card if you do not intend to take serious your responsibility as an American voter. Haphazardly voting for someone because of how they look or their ability to swoon you is nothing of which to be proud.
Bold speech?...You betcha!!!

The heroes aboard Flight 93 said "Let's roll", as they proceeded to sacrifice their lives to stop a group of jihadists from flying the jumbo-jet into the nation's Capitol. Now, progress is being made to turn their memorial, at the crash site, into an homage for Islam. An honor for the killers.
The original Crescent of Embrace memorial to Flight 93 faced less than 2° from Mecca. That made it a mihrab, the Mecca-direction indicator around which every mosque is built. (Some mihrabs are pointed-arch shaped, but the classic mihrab is crescent shaped.)
The Park Service dismissed concern about the Mecca-oriented crescent on grounds that the construction drawings had not yet been finalized. “Those trees could move fifty feet, or three hundred feet,” said Project Manager Jeff Reinbold in the Spring of 2006, as if this kind of "tweaking" would make any difference (Crescent of Betrayal Ch.8 p.145-6).
The construction drawings have now been released, and yes, they moved the lower tip of the half-mile wide crescent about 300 feet, enough to change the orientation of the crescent by about 4.5°. Instead of pointing less than 2° north of Mecca, the giant Islamic-shaped crescent now points less than 3° south of Mecca.
Here is the original Crescent of Embrace:
"Qibla" is the direction to Mecca, which you can verify using any online Mecca-direction calculator (just type in Somerset PA). A person standing between the tips of the giant crescent and facing into the center of the crescent (red arrow) would be facing 1.8° north of Mecca, ± 0.1°.
Here is one of the new construction drawings:
Instead of facing a titch north of Mecca, the giant crescent now faces a titch south of Mecca (2.7° south ± 0.1°).
As with the original Crescent design, the upper crescent tip is the end of the 50’ tall Entry Portal Wall and the lower crescent tip is the last of the 50’ tall Maple trees on the bottom. The landscape overlays make the details hard to see in the thumbnail image above, but at full resolution they are fully legible. (Copy of source PDF, without the superimposed orientations lines here. Large file warning. Graphic is on p. 30 of 233.)
The Park Service was SUPPOSED to remove the Islamic symbol shapes
When architect Paul Murdoch’s winning Crescent of Embrace design was announced in September 2005, it appeared to show a bare naked Islamic crescent and star-flag planted atop the crash site:
Burned by the resulting firestorm of protest, the Park Service to agreed to get rid of the Islamic symbol shapes, but they never did. They added an extra arc of trees, and they call it a broken circle now, but the unbroken part of the circle, what symbolically remains standing in the wake of 9/11, is still a giant Islamic shaped crescent.
This is explained on the Park Service's own website. The extra arc of trees is explicitly described as a broken off part of the circle:
In summary, the memorial is shaped in a circular fashion, and the circle is symbolically "broken" or missing trees in two places, depicting the flight path of the plane, and the crash site.Those two breaks are the two ends of the extra arc of trees:
The extra arc of trees extends from blue circle to blue circle, marking the two “breaks” in the circle referred to in the Park Service’s official explanation of the broken-circle design. One is where the flight path breaks the circle (left), the other is near the crash site (center).
What is symbolically left standing (the unbroken part of the circle) is just this:
Remove the symbolically broken off parts, and you get the original Crescent of Embrace design.
The only change is that the crescent has now been rotated clockwise a few degrees. In the construction plans it faces slightly south of Mecca instead of slightly north of Mecca. For a parallel, imagine airline security discovering a terror bomber, then playing with the fit his suicide vest before escorting him to his plane.
They said they were going to remove the giant crescent. They claim they HAVE removed it, but they haven't. Symbolically, the design remains completely unchanged. The terrorists are still depicted as smashing our peaceful circle and turning it into a giant Islamic-shaped crescent, still pointing to Mecca.
The giant crescent is actually a mihrab
Here is the mihrab at the Great Mosque in Cordoba Spain. Face into the crescent to face Mecca, just like the crescent memorial to Flight 93:
Confronted with evidence that the Crescent of Embrace is actually designed to be the world's largest mosque, the Park Service sought advice from a pair of Muslim scholars. Both acknowledged the almost exact Mecca-orientation of the giant crescent and both offered overtly dishonest excuses for it. One said not to worry about the likeness to an Islamic mihrab because no one has ever seen a mihrab this BIG before:
...most mihrabs are small, rarely larger than the figure of a man, although some of the more ornamental ones can be larger, but nothing as large at the crescent found in the site design. It is unlikely that most Muslims would walk into the area of the circle/crescent and see a mihrab because it is well beyond their limit of experience.Right. That's why everybody scratches their head at Mt. Rushmore. No one has ever seen Abraham Lincoln so BIG before. They just can't figure it out.
To be fooled by this excuse, you have to really really want to be fooled. The other Muslim scholar said not to worry, the crescent cannot be seen as mihrab unless it points exactly at the Kaaba:
Mihrab orientation is either correct or not. It cannot be off by some degrees.In fact, a mihrab does NOT have to point exactly at Mecca, for the simple reason that, throughout most of Islamic history, Muslims in far-flung parts of the world had no accurate way to determine the direction to Mecca. As a result, it was established as a matter of religious principle that what matters is intent to face Mecca. This was recently affirmed by Saudi religious authorities, after Meccans realized that even most of their local mosques do not face directly towards the Kaaba. “It does not affect the prayers” assured the Islamic Affairs Ministry.
Faced with evidence of an Islamic plot, why would the Park Service send this evidence exclusively to Muslims for appraisal? Have they forgotten who attacked us on 9/11?
The Service has long since been apprised of the patent dishonesties retailed by its two Muslim advisors but they don't care. They wanted to be lied to, they knew where to go to be lied to, and they got what they wanted.
Michelle Malkin and Ed Morrissey
So where are the patriotic stalwarts like Michelle Malkin whose objections were instrumental in getting the Park Service to agree to remove the Islamic symbol shapes in the first place? If they knew in 2005 that the symbolic outcome of 9/11 should not be a giant Islamic shaped crescent why are they silent about this exact same symbolism today, after THEY were promised that this perversion would be removed?
Ed Morrissey urged his readers "to tell the National Parks Service and the Secretary of the Interior to rethink their plans," promising for his own part that "as long as that crescent remains in the design, I’m not donating a red cent to the memorial." Well Ed, the crescent does remain in the design, so please rejoin the fight.
The desertion of Malkin et. al. makes a difficult gap to fill, but we had better fill it, or the Flight 93 crash-site will soon be home to the world’s largest mosque.
