A majority of senators support border-security-first strategy, but not enough to pass bill

Senate says no to 6,000 border troops

Democrats managed Thursday to block deployment of National Guard troops to the Mexico border, but the proposal still garnered a majority of senators, showing widespread support for a border-security-first strategy and underscoring why Obama is having difficulty trying to win an immigration-legalization bill.

The tide has turned, even Mass., the home of Kerry and the Kennedy’s, passes a crackdown on illegals!

Obama’s Executive Order: Establishment of the Council of Governors…sound benign?

ALERT! Obama Signs Martial Law Executive Order

Prepare for Martial Law under NEO-COMMUNISM

One must read this one closely but when it dawns on you that the 10 Governors to be appointed by the President will perhaps soon correspond to the 10 FEMA REGIONS and effectively will be under the Secretary of Defense and hence the President in a system of Regional Military Governors over all States, not just the States they might be from, you might just experience a chill up your spine. Note that then all States in essence have been taken over at least on paper by the President and will be administered Militarily. Read carefully Section -2 Functions, of this Executive Order and you will clearly see how inclusive these functions can be……. especially Item e which has language sufficiently broad and loose that a Tank Battalion could be driven through it.

Americans had better understand that this Executive Order along with all of those previously signed ,and with Presidential Decision Directive 51 and others will be used to destroy the Constitution and Bill of Rights and to render each American effectively into nothing more than a member of a work gang subject to control of the Regional Military Governor who is under the Secdef who is under the President. Posse Comitatus then is dead, Habeas Corpus is dead, Bill of Rights is dead, and only the whims and subjective decisions of the Regional Military Governor, as directed by the President via the Secretary of Defense and executed by Northcom troopers who now include U.S. , Canadian, Mexican, and other Foreign troops as well as Mercenaries and the States’ National Guards, Militias, and Police agencies will be the Iron Fist Rule of the Land.

Is this what the Founding Fathers would be proud of or would they say we have come full circle and that now We the People should invoke the Declaration of Independence once again and be ready on Lexington Green and prepositioned at Concord Bridge ? I think I know what Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Sam Adams, and old “Swamp Fox” would say.

The European Union Times: Obama threatens governors with arrest for ‘treason’

Obama Threatens 14 US Governors With Immediate Arrest

A chilling report from the Foreign Military Intelligence Directorate (GRU) prepared for Prime Minister Putin warns today that United States President Barack Obama has had served on 14 US Governors National Security Letters (NSLs) warning that if their actions in attempting to form what are called State Defense Forces are not halted they will face “immediate” arrest for the crime of treason.

The use of NSLs in the United States was authorized by the Patriot Act law enacted after the September 11, 2001 attacks and forbids anyone receiving them from even acknowledging their existence, and was reauthorized by Obama’s “rubberstamp” Congress this past February over the objections of both civil and human rights groups who warned they mimic similar type “government security notices” enacted under both the former German Nazi and Soviet Communist regimes.




Is the Red Cross a Double Cross?

Do You Give to Red Cross? You’re Funding Taliban/Qaeda

By Debbie Schlussel

I’ve never been a fan of the Red Cross and have always advocated that people not give to that organization.  Whether it was providing cover for Nazi death camps during the Holocaust or providing aid and comfort to Hezbollah and HAMAS terrorists during their various wars against innocent Israelis and other victims (and saying it would aid Al-Qaeda, too), the organization is despicable.  That’s not to mention the non-stop Red Cross aid to Palestinian and other Islamic terrorists, the use of Red Cross ambulances to transport HAMAS terrorists and their homicide belts, and disgusting way the Red Cross treated Israel’s version of the Red Cross, the Mogen Dovid Adom (Red Star of David), pursuant to Muslims’ demands.

If that’s a sample of Jarvis’ legal thinking, he’s not much of an attorney.

He ought to read his own job description more carefully. State attorneys represent ‘the people of the state’, not ‘the state’. There is no conflict in advocating for the people of the state inside a court room and at a Tea Party.

Further, to state the blindingly obvious, Tea Parties are attended and addressed by lots of politicians, including those who hope to use Tea Party support to gain elective office. They are no more advocating against ‘the state’ than attendees at a civil rights rally.

How do nitwits like Jarvis ever pass a bar exam?

The most pro-abortion president in history spends taxpayer money promoting a pro-abortion constitution in Kenya!

Obama Admin May Have Illegally Spent $10 Million Promoting Abortion in Kenya

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- New information obtained by a member of Congress makes it appear the Obama administration has spent $10 million potentially illegally promoting a pro-abortion constitution in Kenya. Obama officials were thought to have spent $2 million but Rep. Chris Smith says that figure could exceed $10 million.

Lobbying for or against abortion is prohibited under a provision of federal law known as the Siljander Amendment annually included in the State, Foreign Operations Appropriations Act.

The amendment reads, “None of the funds made available under this Act may be used to lobby for or against abortion,” and violations are subject to civil and criminal penalties under the Antideficiency Act, 31 U.S.C. § 1341."

Smith, the leading Republican on the House Africa and Global Health Subcommittee, and two other members of Congress have called for a probe into the Obama administration's spending in support of a campaign to get the pro-abortion constitution approved in Kenya in August.




Dependence on foreign oil more worrisome than environmental concerns!

Americans Are Becoming Global Warming Skeptics

Most Americans would rather remove the national security threat that foreign oil poses than impose expensive government mandates to fight global warming

Last week, Sens. John Kerry of Massachusetts and Joe Lieberman of Connecticut unveiled “The American Power Act,” the Senate companion to a House bill called “The American Clean Energy and Security Act.” The bill proposes to cut our greenhouse gas emissions by a whopping 80 percent by 2050, in an effort to reduce “global warming.” That’s a tall order, and no one knows if it will actually work. As time goes on, there are more and more voters out there like me: folks who aren’t convinced that global warming is something about which our government can—or should—do anything.

  • Remember the half trillion dollars cut from Medicare in Obamacare, it’s coming out of your paycheck!

    Little-Known Health Care Law Provision Is a Budget Buster, Critics Say

    Patients are cared for at the emergency room at Jamaica Hospital in New York March 22. (AP Photo)

    While Congress spent the last year debating how to provide health insurance for the uninsured, a little-known provision slipped into the heath care law that could cost some Americans upwards of $2,000 a year.

    The Class Act, otherwise known as the

    Community Living Assistance Services and Support Act, is the federal government's first long-term care insurance program.

     

    Under-reported and the under the radar of most lawmakers, the program will allow workers to have an average of roughly $150 or $240 a month, based on age and salary, automatically deducted from their paycheck to save for long-term care.

    MEXICO IS ANGRY

    The real reason behinds Calderon’s speech …The shoe is on the other foot and the State of Sonora, Mexico don't like it.

    Mexico is angry about the Arizona law that took effect this past Jan. 1!

    The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico. Nine state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona's new employer crackdown on illegals from Mexico.

    It seems that many Mexican illegals are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are upset. A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora came to Tucson to state that Arizona's new Employer Sanctions Law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state. At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora, - Arizona's southern neighbor, - made up of mostly small towns, - cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or money. The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1, punishes Arizona employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States. Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license. The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on THEIR state government. 'How can Arizona pass a law like this?' asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales. 'There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona,' she said, speaking in Spanish. 'Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their home-towns in Sonora without jobs,' she said. 'We are one family, socially and economically,' she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona. Wrong! The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico, and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico's citizens. It's time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States and to start taking care of its/their own needs. Too bad other states within the USA don't pass a law just like that passed by Arizona.

    Maybe that's the answer, since our own Congress will do nothing! New Immigration Laws: (Read to the bottom or you will miss the message)

    1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.

    * * * * * * * *

    2. All ballots will be in this nation's language.

    * * * * * * * *

    3.. All government business will be conducted in our language.

    * * * * * * * *

    4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.

    * * * * * * * *

    5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office

    * * * * * * * *

    6 Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any burden will be deported.

    * * * * * * * *

    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

    * * * * * * * *

    8. If foreigners come here and buy land, options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.

    * * * * * * * *

    9. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation.

    * * * * * * * *

    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you.

    * * * * * * * * * Too strict ?

    The above laws are current immigration laws of MEXICO!

    Obama visit costs union workers a days pay at solar plant. I’ll bet the union bosses didn’t lose any pay

    Solar plant workers sent home without pay on day of presidential visit...

    FREMONT (KRON) -- Construction workers at the Solyndra Plant in Fremont will be spending the day at home Wednesday without pay as President Obama visits the company to praise its work on solar panels.
    Union workers have been told not to come back until Thursday because of security concerns associated with the President's visit.  Workers tell KRON 4's Kate Thompson this day off means they won't get paid.
    "It's with no pay and we have no choice," construction worker Adam Bracamontes told Kate.  "We have to take a day off and come back Thursday.  We don't get to meet the President.  We're the workers and we don't get to see him."
    "I'm a little bummed because I would love to meet the President," worker Rich Patten added. "We were told we had the day off so it is what it is."
    KRON 4's Gabe Slate reports the President chose Solyndra because it received stimulus funds to help create green jobs.
    Neither the company nor several unions returned Kate's calls for comment on why the workers were losing a day's pay for the President's visit.

    Effort to cleanup the classroom environment on ‘global warming’ in Colorado school. Let’s hope others follow suit!

    Push to teach "other side" of global warming heats up in Colorado's Mesa County

    GRAND JUNCTION — A national group that thinks global warming is "junk science" and that teaching it is unnecessarily scaring schoolchildren brought its first petition effort for "balanced education" to Mesa County Schools on Tuesday night.

    Rose Pugliese, an unsuccessful candidate for a District 51 school board seat in the last election, presented a petition with 700 signatures to the board asking that science teachers stop giving lessons on global warming.

    Pugliese, a 32-year-old Grand Junction attorney and activist in Tea Party and conservative Republican groups, also presented a petition with 600 signatures demanding Mesa County schools keep political views out of classrooms.

    Pugliese's efforts have made her the poster girl for the group Balanced Education for Everyone and have pinpointed Mesa County as a national test case for keeping the teaching of humans' influence on global warming out of science classes.

    "It (global warming) is not a proven scientific theory. There is not evidence to support it," Pugliese told the board, generating applause from about 40 Tea Party and other conservative group members who filled the room for the first school board petition battle over this issue in the country.

    NYT scooped: Washing Post credited with tipping off Jihadist al-Awlaki of airstrike

    Jihadist al-Awlaki: Washington Post Saved Me From Airstrike

    Anwar al-Awlaki, the U.S.-born imam linked to the Fort Hood shooting spree in Texas in November, the botched Christmas Day airliner bombing, and the failed Times Square bombing early this month, credited the Washington Post with tipping him off and allowing him to elude a U.S. airstrike in Yemen in December.
    Most of the attention given to al-Awlaki’s lengthy interview in an al-Qaida video released Sunday has focused on his call to kill civilian Americans. But far more provocative is his revelation of how the U.S. media can inadvertently assist and protect al-Qaida terrorists.
    “I had posted an article of mine in support of what Nidal Hasan did,” al-Awlaki said in Arabic, referring to the Army major now charged with 13 murder counts in the Fort Hood massacre. “And so, they shut down my website.”
    Al-Awlaki added, “Then I read in the Washington Post that they were monitoring my communications. So I was forced to stop these communications. I left that region, and then the American air strikes took place.”

    Let's put the seniors in jail, and the criminals in a nursing home.

    This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks, they'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment , wheel chairs etc. And they'd receive money instead of paying it out.

    They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly ,if they fell, or needed assistance.

    Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

    A guard would check on them every 20 minutes, and bring their meals and snacks to their cell. They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

    They would have access to a library, weight room,spiritual counseling, pool, and education.

    Simple clothing , shoes, slippers, P.J.'s and legal aid would be free, on request.

    Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard ,with gardens.

    Each senior could have a pc a TV,  radio, and daily phone calls.

    There would be a board of directors , to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct, that would be strictly adhered to.

    The "criminals" would get cold food,  be left all alone, and unsupervised.

    Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week.

    Live in a tiny room , and pay $5000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out. Justice for all.




    Census Bureau fires then and rehires employees multiple times to improve jobs created stats!

    Two more Census workers blow the whistle

     

    You know the old saying: "Everyone loves a charade." Well, it seems that the Census Bureau may be playing games.

    Last week, one of the millions of workers hired by Census 2010 to parade around the country counting Americans blew the whistle on some statistical tricks.

    The worker, Naomi Cohn, told The Post that she was hired and fired a number of times by Census. Each time she was hired back, it seems, Census was able to report the creation of a new job to the Labor Department.

    Below, I have a couple more readers who worked for Census 2010 and have tales to tell.

    But first, this much we know.

    Each month Census gives Labor a figure on the number of workers it has hired. That figure goes into the closely followed monthly employment report Labor provides. For the past two months the hiring by Census has made up a good portion of the new jobs.

    Labor doesn't check the Census hiring figure or whether the jobs are actually new or recycled. It considers a new job to have been created if someone is hired to work at least one hour a month.

    One hour! A month! So, if a worker is terminated after only one hour and another is hired in her place, then a second new job can apparently be reported to Labor . (I've been unable to get Census to explain this to me.)

    Here's a note from a Census worker -- this one from Manhattan:

    "John: I am on my fourth rehire with the 2010 Census.

    "I have been hired, trained for a week, given a few hours of work, then laid off. So my unemployed self now counts for four new jobs.

    Climate Fears Turn to Doubts Among Britons: Surprise, this story carried by NYT!

    NYT: Fears Turn to Doubts About Global Warming...

    LONDON — Last month hundreds of environmental activists crammed into an auditorium here to ponder an anguished question: If the scientific consensus on climate change has not changed, why have so many people turned away from the idea that human activity is warming the planet?

    Nowhere has this shift in public opinion been more striking than in Britain, where climate change was until this year such a popular priority that in 2008 Parliament enshrined targets for emissions cuts as national law. But since then, the country has evolved into a home base for a thriving group of climate skeptics who have dominated news reports in recent months, apparently convincing many that the threat of warming is vastly exaggerated.

    A survey in February by the BBC found that only 26 percent of Britons believed that “climate change is happening and is now established as largely manmade,” down from 41 percent in November 2009. A poll conducted for the German magazine Der Spiegel found that 42 percent of Germans feared global warming, down from 62 percent four years earlier.

    PM Netanyahu: Iran-Brazil-Turkey Uranium Deal is an Act of Deception

    The deal between Iran, Turkey and Brazil is “a bogus suggestion,”

    `Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu broke his silence Tuesday regarding Iran's enriched uranium deal with Turkey, calling it “an act of deception.” Until this statement, the Israeli government had offered no official comment on the deal, apparently preferring to let other countries react to it first.

    Iran announced last week it would ship its nuclear reactors’ low-grade uranium to Turkey, which in return will give Tehran fuel rods of medium-enriched uranium for a "medical research reactor." The deal was also signed by Brazil.

    Speaking before the Knesset plenum in a special session convened at the request of 40 Knesset members, Netanyahu said: “This is transparently an Iranian act of deception that is meant to divert international opinion from the sanctions against Iran in the [United Nations] Security Council.”

    The Banking Monopoly - Babylon Banksters by Joseph P. Farrell

    The Banking Monopoly

    Expert in alternative science and history, Joseph P. Farrell presented his premise that ancient and modern international bankers have practiced a kind of racketeering (hence his nickname for them 'Banksters') that relates to concepts in physics. Both physics and finance can be thought of in two different ways. One is a closed system, based on scarce resources, energy or money. The other is an open system, in which energy is in abundant supply, "and where money in turn reflects this by being a creation of the state, and therefore a debt-free instrument of exchange," he detailed.

    The former is the system we've been living under, "where you have a private banking monopoly issuing monetized debt...the money always carries an interest bearing load on it, so there's always going to be money that's in short supply of the demands of the economic system that it's in," he said. Any bank including the Federal Reserve can never issue interest, they can only lend money into circulation, so that there's never enough money to pay the interest on the principle, he continued. A state, however, can issue debt-free money yet past US Presidents such as Lincoln, Garfield, and Kennedy all ended up assassinated after they tried to change the banking system, Farrell pointed out.

    The Federal Reserve is not a government enterprise-- it's a privately held joint-stock company that's "no more federal than Federal Express," Farrell quipped. However, now, the corporate elite bankers are on the defensive-- "they've made too many enemies around the world," with countries like Russia and China, he noted. Politicians such as Ron Paul are on the right track, calling for an audit of the Federal Reserve, he commented. New energy technologies like zero point are being suppressed by both governments and the corporate elite, as "they are wanting to monopolize this technology for themselves," as well as keep it out of the hands of terrorists who might hold the world hostage, he added.

    Financial Reform Bill would create a Fannie and Freddie “on steroids

    Financial Reform Bill Is A ‘Disaster’: Sen. Gregg

    Published: Monday, 24 May 2010 | 11:22 AM ET

    The financial regulatory bill is a “disaster,” and its proposed consumer protection agency would create a Fannie and Freddie “on steroids,” Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H. told CNBC on Monday.

    “The bill is a disaster because it doesn’t address the fundamental underlining causes of the economic issue, which were real estate and underwriting,” he said. “This bill became, ‘I want to score the most points against Wall Street.’ Most of the initiative of this bill wasn’t directed at solving the problem, but it was directed at scoring political points.”




    Obamacare bad to the bone: stymies small business growth

    Report: Healthcare law tax credits encourage small businesses to stay small, not hire

    By Jay Heflin - 05/23/10 04:30 PM ET

    A study by the National Center for Policy Analysis shows that tax credits in the new healthcare law could negatively impact small-business hiring decisions.

    The new law provides a 50 percent tax credit to companies offering health coverage that have fewer than 10 workers who, on average, earn $25,000 a year. The tax credit is reduced as more employees are added to the payroll.

    The NCPA study finds the reduction in tax relief to be a cost concern for companies looking to hire additional workers, but operate on slim profit margin yet still provide employee health coverage.

    “You wouldn’t think this would have an impact, but at the margins, when they [business owners] decide to hire an extra worker, they’re not only going to be paying that worker’s salary, they’re going to have to absorb the cost of losing the tax credit,” Pamela Villarreal, NCPA Senior Policy Analyst and co-author of the report, told The Hill.




    Arizona Sheriff Wants Apology From Mexico for Its 'Threatening' Tourism Ad

    "To me, it's a threatening type of advertisement”

    By Joshua Rhett Miller

    An Arizona sheriff is calling on Mexican officials to apologize for a "threatening" advertisement that depicts a camouflage-clad man looking through binoculars with the words: "In Sonora we are looking for people from Arizona."

    This half-page advertisement appeared Friday in the Arizona Republic, prompting Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to call for a clarification. A second version that featured beachgoers and additional words -- "who want to have a great time" -- ran on Saturday.

    An Arizona sheriff is calling on Mexican officials to apologize for what he says is a "threatening" advertisement. The ad shows a man wearing camouflage looking through binoculars with the words: "In Sonora we are looking for people from Arizona."

    The advertisement, which ran Friday in the Arizona Republic, caught the eye of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who posted the VisitMexico.com/GoToSonora.com spot on his Twitter page and asked citizens to call Mexican Tourism Board offices for clarification.

    "Are they threatening us? Do they not want us to go to Mexico for tourism? It's mindboggling," Arpaio told FoxNews.com on Monday. "I don't think it was in good taste."

    Arpaio said he found the advertisement "inappropriate" and called on Mexican officials to apologize.

    "I want everybody to call the Tourism Board," Arpaio said. "To me, it's a threatening type of advertisement."




    OBAMA REDISTRIBUTION VICTORY: PRIVATE PAY PLUMMETS, GOVT HANDOUTS SOAR

    Private pay shrinks to historic lows

    Paychecks from private business shrank to their smallest share of personal income in U.S. history during the first quarter of this year, a USA TODAY analysis of government data finds.

    At the same time, government-provided benefits — from Social Security, unemployment insurance, food stamps and other programs — rose to a record high during the first three months of 2010.

    Those records reflect a long-term trend accelerated by the recession and the federal stimulus program to counteract the downturn. The result is a major shift in the source of personal income from private wages to government programs.

    Obama regime sides with muslims instead of Bill of Rights: Facebook caves to muslim rants; censors group!

    US State Dept backs sharia law on Muhammid images

    Posted on May 24, 2010 by creeping

    The State Dept certainly does not speak for the majority of Americans, and one has to wonder when will they start enforcing sharia law in America? Hat tip to Jihad Watch who adds:

    …the point of publishing the Motoons is not to cause offense, although they will certainly do that. The key fact is that the cartoons arouse in Muslims not only murderous rage but attempts to restrict the freedom of speech through legal avenues. As such, self-censorship amounts only to self-imposed dhimmitude, and to acquiescence to the supremacy and rule of Sharia.

    That’s why the Motoons are not a stunt, not a joke, not a raspberry to anyone, not an exercise in obnoxiousness or gratuitous offense. The Motoons are rather the foremost battleground in the defense of the freedom of speech today. Every newspaper in the country should be printing them today, to show they are not cowed and will defend free speech. The State Department should be explaining what I am explaining now. Instead, this.

    “US slams blasphemous Facebook images,” from the Daily Times,

    WASHINGTON: The US has deplored blasphemous images of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) on Facebook as “deeply offensive to both Muslims and non-Muslims alike”, saying America does not condone expressions that lead to violence or hatred. The US State Department also expressed respect for any actions that need to be taken under Pakistani law to protect their citizens from offensive speech, but expected a balance between restricting offensive material and ensuring flow of information for the Internet users. “Obviously, this is a difficult and challenging issue. Many of the images that appear today on Facebook were deeply offensive to Muslims and non-Muslims alike,” Philip J Crowley, assistant secretary of state, said.

    Meanwhile, the State Dept., Obama, Holder et al, are absolutely SILENT on the Muslims using Facebook to threaten killing Americans, via Jumping in Pools, Irate Muslims Threaten to Kill “Draw Mohammed Day” Group Creator on Facebook:

    Update: Facebook has removed the Everybody Draw Muhammad Day group. Apparently the threats worked and freedom of speech was a casualty. However, Facebook is leaving up the “Everybody Draw Holocaust” group and pictures of the Taliban’s flag. Disgusting.

    Iranian Army commanders warn against further dictatorship and tyranny in the country.

    Army commanders: 'We will take action if tyranny persists'

    GVF -- A group of commanders in the Iranian Army have issued a statement warning Iranian authorities that they will be confronted with by military personnel if they persist in establishing further dictatorship and tyranny in the country.

    The letter by a group of commanders and holders of military ranks in the Iranian Army was obtained by the Green Voice of Freedom. It has been published by the Persian service of the Green Voice of Freedom a day before the anniversary of the liberation of the Iranian city of Khorramshar in 1982 when Iranian armed forces succeeded in evicting Iraqi invaders from southern Iran.

    The letter points out the “undeniable” role of the Iranian Army in liberating Khorramshahr, in addition to the important role of the entire Iranian people for this memorable victory.
    Addressing the Iranian people, the letter adds: “The responsibility of your children in the Army of the Islamic Republic has always been to defend the country and nation against the different threats that exist and are summarised as foreign threats—colonialism—and internal threats—tyranny.”

    In the letter, the commanders state that they are “maintaining their vigilance” in identifying these threats and their causes. “Meanwhile Army personnel are faced with the same economic, social and cultural problems as the rest of the nation.”

    “These problems are the outcome of the mismanagement and incompetence of certain officials in the Islamic Republic and it is evident to everyone, that this incompetence and mismanagement, especially in recent years, is the result of the whimsical behaviour of certain officials and their reading of the constitution and the Islamic System. Hence, the serving personnel of the Army announce their deep concern with regards to the exploitation of the country’s laws by certain officials for advancing their own personal ends and the goals of groups they belong to.”

    The commanders also issue a “warning” to the current “lawbreaking” rulers, stating that they will not tolerate a “further exploitation of power, wealth and arms against the Iranian people in order to consolidate erratic rule and dictatorship.”

    “If they persist with their illegal, anti-religious and immoral behaviour against the Iranian people, they must know that they will be confronted with the revolutionary force of the nation’s sons in the Army of the Islamic Republic.”




    American universities are no place to endear Muslims to America, most are anti-American.

    Two More “Enlightened” Muslim Student Visa Holders; Plot to Poison U.S. Embassy Food

    By Debbie Schlussel

    We’re constantly fed the baloney that Muslims who are “exposed” to the United States by going to school here become “moderate” and increase their appreciation and “understanding” for America.  That was the line we were repeatedly given by the mainstream media, colleges and universities, and even the Bush Administration after 9/11.  It’s why President Bush not only doubled, but later quadrupled to over 30,000, the number of Saudi-sponsored Muslim student visas to the U.S.

    But as anyone who knows about Islamic terrorism knows, many of the Islamic terrorists who attack us or try to are U.S. college grads or attended some college here.  That includes Faisal Shahzad and it most significantly includes the late Sayyid Qutb, Osama Bin Laden’s guru, and the forefather of Al-Qaeda.  Qutb, to date, is one of the most important Islamic scholars, and his hatred of the West was further ignited by his utter contempt for America when he studied here at a Greeley, Colorado university.

    GVF -- A great number of students at Shahid Beheshti University have been summoned by the disciplinary committee of the University for protesting against an unannounced visit by Ahmadinejad to their university.

    On 10 May, students at the university who had learned about Ahmadinejad’s visit quickly mobilised a great number of students to protest the unannounced visit at the university’s main square.

    According to the Jaras opposition website, many students have been summoned to the Shahid Beheshti University’s disciplinary committee, some for charges unrelated to the protest. However, their fellow students are currently weighing up different available options on how best to respond to the latest summoning.

    It should be noted that immediately after the protests against the Ahmadinejad’s visit on 10 May, twenty students from the university were summoned to the Intelligence Ministry.

    The Firearms Freedom Act (FFA) is sweeping the Nation.

    April 14th, 2010

    Originally introduced and passed in Montana, the FFA declares that any firearms made and retained in-state are beyond the authority of Congress under its constitutional power to regulate commerce among the states.

    Following initial Montana enactment, clones of the Firearms Freedom Act have subsequently been enacted in Tennessee, Utah, Wyoming and South Dakota, and other clones have been introduced in the legislatures of twenty-some other states.

    The FFA is primarily a Tenth Amendment challenge to the powers of Congress under the “commerce clause,” with firearms as the object – it is a state’s rights exercise.

    Euro to give way to Neuro

    Sen. Gregg says tough to see how the euro survives as a currency after crisis

    A top Republican senator on financial issues said Monday that it may be difficult for the euro to survive as a currency.

    Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee who also serves as a senior member on the Finance and Banking committees, said that a debt crisis in the Eurozone could undermine the eight-year-old currency.

    "I don't see how their currency survives much longer as a unit," Gregg said, citing the sovereign debt crises in countries like Greece, Spain, Ireland and Portugal.




    Holder to appoint special prosecutor on Sestak job bribe? Not very likely!

    Democrat lawmaker urges White House to release details on Sestak job

    By Michael O'Brien - 05/24/10 07:56 AM ET

    Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.) called on the White House on Monday to detail conversations it allegedly had with Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) to try to convince him to drop his Senate bid.
    Weiner said that allegations that White House officials had offered Sestak an administration job in exchange for his dropping of his primary bid against Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) had become a growing political liability.
    "I think what the White House should do is, to some degree, say, 'Here are the facts,' " Weiner said Monday morning during an appearance on MSNBC. "If there's not a lot [to] what's going on here, then just say what happened."
    Republicans led by Rep. Darrell Issa (Calif.), the ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, have begun to ramp up pressure on the White House and Sestak, who originally made his allegation during his eventually successful primary challenge to Specter.
    Issa has called on Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor in the matter, and has threatened to file an ethics complaint against Sestak.
    White House press secretary Robert Gibbs maintained on Sunday that "nothing inappropriate happened."




    Arizona desert wash turned into filthy garbage dump by noble illegal immigrants

    Hey everyone out there!

    We, in Arizona, know you're boycotting us -- but you really should come out here and see our Beautiful Sonoran Desert.

    It's just gorgeous right now!  We know you'd love it and maybe you can share what you saw with the rest of the country so they can love it too!

    clip_image001

    This is on an 'illegal super - highway' from Mexico to the USA (Tucson) used by human smugglers.

    This area is located in a wash, approximately 1.5 miles long, just south of Tucson, Arizona. If a flood came, all this would be washed to the river and then onto the sea!

    clip_image002

    It is estimated over 5,000 discarded backpacks are in this wash.  Countless water containers, food wrappers, clothing, feces, including thousands of soiled baby diapers. And as you can see in this picture, fresh footprints leading right into it.

    clip_image003

    As we kept walking down the wash, we thought for sure it was going to end, but around every corner was more and more trash!

    clip_image004

    And of course the trail leading out of the wash in our city, heads directly NORTH to Tucson, then leads to your town tomorrow.

    clip_image005

    They've already come through here. Isn't Arizona just beautiful, America?

    Why would you boycott us???

    Our desert has basically been turned into a landfill.

    clip_image006

    The trash left behind by people illegally crossing our border is another Environmental Disaster to hit the USA.

    If these actions had been done in one of our Northwest Forests or Seashore National Parks areas, there would be an uprising of the American people.....but this is the Arizona-Mexican border.

    You won't see these pictures on CNN, ABC, NBC or the Arizona Republic Repugnant newspaper.  Nor will they mention the disease that comes from the uncovered human waste left in our desert.

    However, with respect to CNN, ABC & NBC, they do offer us "Special Reports" on cheating celebrity spouses....
    This information needs to be seen by the rest of the country.

    WEST POINT, N.Y. -- President Obama on Saturday offered a glimpse of a new national security doctrine that distances his administration from George W. Bush's policy of preemptive war, emphasizing global institutions and America's role in promoting democratic values.

Instead, Obama pledged to shape a new "international order" based on diplomacy and engagement.




    LT .Col. Allen West on Illegal Immigration

    The most dangerous man in the world! The Obama dossier.

    Obama, and Columbia University were found guilty on all 17 counts of Sedition, Conspiracy, Fraud, and Obstruction of Justice.

    My Fellow Americans,

    On Tuesday, 18 May 2010 in The ATLAH Court room under the sanction of the US Constitution "We The People spoke." Mr. Obama , Michael Sovern, and the Trustees of Columbia University were found guilty on all 17 counts of Sedition, Conspiracy, Fraud, and Obstruction of Justice.

    I am assembling a coalition to hand the verdicts to The Judiciary of The US Senate, The US Congress, The Joint Chiefs Of Staff, and The US Attorney General.

    Specifically for Michael Sovern and Columbia University, I will be submitting to The New York State Bar, The New York State Attorney General, New York State Regents, and The Mid-Atlantic Schools Accreditation demanding their license to operate an educational institution be revoked.

    Perhaps their first response will be to defend and reject. Thereupon, will begin the most exciting part of this guilty victory. Inasmuch, as we will proceed to court testing the constitutionality of the 10th Amendment established by our Founding Fathers.

    I expect the courts to be careful in their decision not to injure the rights of "We The People."

    Krauthammer: ICE Situation Shows "Near Lawlessness" Of Obama Admin.

    Charles Krauthammer: "I think it's a perfect example of the arrogance and the near lawlessness of this administration."

    "[The Arizona law] is as legal a law as any other law in the land. And for the executive to say we're going to ignore it, or we're going to unenforce immigration essentially in this state on account of this, is lawless."

    Governor of Arizona chides the Feds on their inaction in fixing the border problem, then Governor Napolitano, that is!!!

    This will knock your socks off! Look at the DATE and who signed it!

    Here is an excerpt from a 2008 letter then Gov of Arizona Janet Napolitano (now Secretary of Homeland Security) to then Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff:

    Date: March 11, 2008

    "[r]eal solutions to fix our broken borders cannot wait that long.  Human and drug smuggling rings continue to thrive in Arizona, crossing our border and using our cities as major hubs to transport crosser throughout the country.  While we wait for real progress on the "virtual fence," border communities in Arizona will continue to be strained by the millions of dollars in costs they must absorb due to the state of border security."

    ....

    Yours very truly,

    Janet Napolitano

    Governor

    In reading the above letter, would you not think DHS Napolitano would be Arizona's biggest champion in Washington?  Would you not think she, of all people, would understand the frustration in Arizona?  Don't you think she would be pushing her boss, President Obama, to help Arizona?  and get President Obama to push Congress to help this state?  Instead DHS Napolitano had to recently embarrassingly admit that she did not read the Arizona illegal immigration law.

    And before you get all whooped up about whether the Arizona statute is constitutional or not, that is not the issue. The statute is a cry for help and the current fight over it a distraction.  The issue is the FAILURE of the federal government to help the STATE of ARIZONA.  The statue, while probably unconstitutional for trying to set immigration policy in contravention of our Constitution, is a cry for help -- one that has been utterly ignore.

    [PS if you think that is the ONLY letter we have from then Gov Napolitano, you are dead wrong.  I just finished studying a bunch of her letters pleading the case for Arizona when she was Governor.  Tune in tonight to ON THE RECORD at 10pm.]
