Let's All Play Blind Man's Bluff, Shall We?

OR PERHAPS, AN INTIMATE GAME OF PIN THE BIRTHER'S TALE ON THE DONKEY. So little miss Whoopi Goldberg is playing the race card (again, again)? Is that supposed to be teeth-rattling news? Shall we all play Blind Man's Bluff, instead? Is this the new nursery rhyme American life streaming gently across the rocks of realpolitik where only the government really knows your name?

Tentative GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump referring to Obama's penchant for playing basketball instead of working at his job is simply an empirical observation, a cold, inalienable fact, a personal distinction of the president's well-publicized behavior!

How many US Presidents have played basketball as much as Obama the Windjammer, hogged the spotlight, and then bragged about their prowess of the game. Which President in history has had to get medical attention while in office from basketball. Which President has spent more time studying his Final Four Brackets at the cost of his war plans against a nation, let's say, Libya.

Sorry but that's not racial stereotyping to point this stuff out. These are specific facts particular to Obama. Should the Donald have referred to golf instead, because the little white ball in the hole is a safe reference? Doesn't all this chatter subtly pointing to the size and color of one choice of ball references run much too close to the preposterous racist theories of Dr. Florence Cress-Welsing? The fact that Obama is black or half white is immaterial. These phony racist charges dribble in from a phony leftist ideology eaten up by the stereotypes they employ against others...

There's probably no hope for Whoopi's latest excellent adventure into political speech, but recently ascendant Juan Williams, with his uncharacteristic pile-on at Fox News, should be roundly ashamed of himself, given his recent firing at NPR. As another American Thinker wit put it ever so delightfully, "Juan Williams needs to spend some serious time in the presence of Congressman Allen West. He would be a better American for it."

Creating An (Un)American President From Scratch

The following matches my own speculative explanation for why this president cannot produce a valid birth certificate, even on his second attempt. For more interesting commentary on this topic please, not only click the link below, but read the comments section with a critical mind. We were particularly intrigued by the one about the Soviet Festival babies submitted by Erica Brigid and the piece about the Manufactured Man...

Young Obama
Young Obama

IHE PRESUMED STORY OF OBAMA'S birth sounds like a "Seduced and Abandoned" epic. In fact, his birth and early upbringing are not that different from thousands of such incidents that transpire on a daily basis. So it's all a myth that is being pulled down, stone by stone! Obama's father was not a class act but Obama mythologizes him in his book.

The Manchurian Candidate jumps right out of the Silver Screen into the White House.

But the fault does not lie with the mythologizers but with a vapid, Hollywood worship of false idols by a frighteningly ignorant American public. I think our age will be known as the Age of Gigantic Scams. First, Bernie Madoff bilking thousands, then Al Gore fattening his bank account with a faux myth about Global Warming, and then Obama with the biggest scam of them all, winning the presidency by exploiting the race guilt feelings of millions of Americans!

Just Saying, Neither Islam Nor Its PR Committee Is My Friend

Ayatollah Khomeini memorably articulated:

ISLAM MAKES IT UNCUMBENT on all adult males, provided they are not disabled or incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world. . . . But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world. . . . Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]…. Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Qur'anic] psalms and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.

Just seems to me, I've got other alliances and obligations that to choose to war against my neighbors in favor of those who wish me dead, dead, and more dead, as evidenced just one of many tens of thousands of time, by this recent leader of the masses who proclaim to follow the message of Mohammed, who was the"perfect model of human behavior" they say...

The Show Me State Under Religious Assault

Missouri
Missouri

MISSOURI doesn't spring to mind when one thoughtfully ponders the American Islamic question, but the state is at the forefront of legislative action in making sure American law is the ONLY LAW that will rule its citizens. In Jefferson City, the Missouri House passed a bill that they hope will work in prohibiting state courts from using or recognizing Sharia law. The bill passed the Missouri House Wednesday on a 102-51 vote.

The legislation, which was sponsored by state Rep. Paul Curtman, R-Pacific, bans Missouri courts from utilizing foreign law or legal code in any ruling. Although it never specifically mentions the words “Sharia” or “Islam," Wednesday’s debate focused almost exclusively on Sharia law, which is the religious law of Islam.

“This bill is not all about Sharia Law,” Curtman said. "It’s Sharia Law, French law, Dutch law or anything else.”

Missouri's statehouse went red in the 2010 elections, with the exception of Governor Jay Nixon (D) whose term had not expired. Nixon said he won't sign this bill, but Republicans have a super-majority now so we don't care.

There was recently a row here over a woman wearing the burqa, hijab, and niqab in a store. The manager got fired over it, and a local radio host castigated the manager over disrepecting "religious garb." He used only the term 'burqa' to describe her dress.

The woman's husband agreed with the radio fool that nuns would also be targeted. But nuns don't cover their faces. Right now Republicans are trying to pass a picture ID for voting. This is part of it.

This incident occured in Manchester, MO, a suburb where the Dar al-Islam mosque is located. Every Friday is Halloween there now and stores are tired of these masked, fully covered creatures billowing in. The store manager said he could not verify her identity for a purchase, and HE WAS FIRED.

Medina

And to echo what has been said rather eloquently by us and many others: We believe that our Constitution and laws exist to protect this nation—they do not grant rights and privileges to enemies in wartime. In dealing with terrorists, our tax dollars should pay for weapons to stop them, not lawyers to defend them.

Good Bye America

Once something has been labeled a religion, no American will question, challenge or think objectively about it. Call yourself a religion and Americans turn into zombies letting you do anything you want, even “kill them”. The greatest military power in world history lays supine, lily livered, gutless and enfeebled, and it’s all because we have wrongly given Islam the protected status of a RELIGION. “Good Bye America it’s been nice knowin ya” Surely, this is the bleakest hour in American history when our nation cannot tell friend from foe, nor religion from invader.

There is no doubt that we Americans suffer from a collective mental illness, mental block, emotional imbalance, and psychological disorder, precipitated every time we hear the word religion. Let’s call it schizo-religionitis. Mention the word “religion” and we immediately become deaf, dumb and blind, suspending all rational thought and common sense. Here is the childishly insane logic Americans apply to their criteria for a religion:

Apple juice is a liquid and drinking a cup is good for you; therefore drinking a cup of hemlock must be good for you because it is also a liquid.

Read it all here, please. Strengthen yourself and shepherd your family. Instill in the them the original spirit of America, and know that we can work this mess out if we each give everything we got to save our nation from its enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Remember that individual Muslims are human beings trapped under a pernicious spell of evil and death, even as the beautiful ones smile, and the dogged ones snear. But also know that plotting beneath both facades is the raging lion of Islam, not radical Islam, but simply Islam.

Islam is the enemy, just as Monarchism, Communism, Fascism, and Naziism were our enemies. Accordingly, just as not all Japanese or Germans or Italians, or Russians or American Southerners were drunk on power and aggression, continental Americans took precautions, and defeated them each in their turn. Now comes Islam and do not be fooled for Islam is no pushover.

The political nature of Mohammedism has been practicing its dark arts of total aggression over the human spirit for 1400 years, having destroyed and consumed numerous cultures large and small along the way, and for the past sixty years has had its eyes set on the West with no intention of playing nice, but gripped with a lust for world domination in mind all along since its inception. This is not conjecture, but our own immediate future.

Therefore we must insist that it is now Islam's turn to be defeated, if possible destroyed, stripped of its power, redeemed for its humanity, and its survivors allowed to nurse and heal in proper countenance so that they may return to the promises we all seek, but can rarely find in our struggle against each other after being poisoned with words.

Dreaming Of Honor, Honoring the Dream

WE THINK THIS IS AN ACT that is long overdue…If you agree, please share it with as many people as you can. Let’s start a movement!
1. Term Limits. 12 years only, one of the possible options below.
A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms
2. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.
4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.

The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

WikiLeak Revelations You Might Not Have Heard

THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A FREE PRESS to finally realize that you get what you pay for. That is to say, a propped up state-run press, an "abominable thing" feeding our mainstream media no longer the people's voice but who seem entirely content to merely corrupt the people. Gone are the days of discover, parse, print, and serve. Now they spin, spaz, and punt, and then complain about an unlevel playing field of their own creation. We don't even need to read or hear the news anymore, because the bias is so ingrained, so ubiquitous, we can already furnish the story ourselves. Yes, the story has already been told. There is nothing new here to consume in the name of all the news that's fit to print. Here's a clue for those who have been paying attention. Just connect the GODDAMNED DOTS! For those who haven't been paying attention, and yes, these minions are restless, it appears your time is about up. You will be strategized, and you won't even recognize the sound of your own voice.

WikiLeaks' latest publication of Iraq war documents contains a lot of information that most reasonable people would prefer remained unknown, such as the names of Iraqi informants who will now be hunted for helping the U.S.

And although the anti-war left welcomed the release of the documents, they would probably cringe at one of the most significant finds of this latest crop of reports: Iraq had weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

"By late 2003, even the Bush White House's staunchest defenders were starting to give up on the idea that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq," Wired magazine's Danger Room reports. "But WikiLeaks' newly-released Iraq war documents reveal that for years afterward, U.S. troops continued to find chemical weapons labs, encounter insurgent specialists in toxins and uncover weapons of mass destruction."

That is, there definitively were weapons of mass destruction and elements of a WMD program in Saddam Hussein's Iraq when U.S.-led coalition troops entered the country to depose Hussein.

Predictably, the liberal media did their best to either ignore the story—like the New York Times and Washington Post did—or spin it. It's not an easy choice to make, since ignoring the story makes you look out of the loop and hurts your reputation as an informative publication, yet spinning the story means actively attempting to confuse and mislead your readers. CBS News chose the latter.

Read it all.

Shrink That Thing

There are more than 1300 federal agencies in our guvmint. I've got an idea. Close 10 per week; select them with a lottery; it will take more than 2 years to close them all. Give the federal employees 30 days to tell the American people what they do for us and how much it costs; propose private sector entrepreneurial endeavors that are of value to us. Then Congress, after consulting the people, can pass bills to consolidate, streamline, and make competitive with industry, every guvmint agency; ten at a time. That’ll keep 'em busy doing the people’s work. And, it will fund guvmint at levels justified by our current economic malaise. Meanwhile all those highly paid guvmint workers can find out just how difficult it is to find a job or to make a business run with all the "help" we get from our guvmint!

While we're at it, let's repeal the 17th Amendment, strengthen the states, counties and towns. Put faces on our neighbors. Offer joy, hard work, testimony into our world.

Danger is often a stranger. And sometimes Satan comes as a Man of Peace.

But this Great American Experiment must be reconstituted from the ground up. We struggled for a more perfect union but we settled for a more corrupt union. We lost our way, but we can save the republic if we honor our forefathers who believed that America, by definition, can be summed up in a word, and that word is potential.

But we must not give up the fight.
