America’s Trojan Horse


Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Is asking the hard questions of the DHS secretary Janet Napolitano, and he might as well had asked Eric Holder for “Fast and Furious” documents. In our constitutional republic, the main purpose of government is to protect the God-given rights of the citizens it represents. The goal, it seems of Rep. Gohmert was a noble one, to get to the heart of an issue that should concern all Americans across all party lines, did Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano know she gave a visa and a classified security clearance to a known terrorist facilitator and sympathizer, Hani Nour Eldin. Eldin is a member of Egypt’s parliament and a member of Egypt’s Gamaa Islamiya group which is listed as a known terrorist organization. Eldin attended multiple meetings last month at the behest of the president and DHS, some of which were conducted at the White House. Issue number two, did Napolitano know that the DHS advisory council member (appointed by Obama), Mohamed Elibiary, used his security clearance (that Napolitano gave him) to access and download classified documents with his personal computer and shop the information to media outlets?

Napolitano couldn’t really answer any of Gohmert’s questions other than telling him that it was “objectionable” to attack or accuse someone because they are Muslim, (classic liberal response, Gohmert asks hard questions and he is deemed “bigoted” or “racist”) Rep. Gohmert also asked Napolitano if she was aware of the fact that Elibiary was affiliated with a charity here in the states named the Freedom and Justice Foundation. This is important because the name of the now defunct foundation here in America also shared its name with the Freedom and Justice Party in Egypt. The Freedom and Justice Party in Egypt is the legislative arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The administration has been very open to advice from the “Council on American Islāmic Relations” aka (CAIR) which have been named an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation court case that took place in northern Texas. You will remember, that this is the court case that named all the people responsible for using the giving nature of Americans to secretly fund terrorist activities all around the globe.

If the stonewall tactic looks familiar to you, it should, it worked for Eric Holder at the Fast and Furious hearings. If congress keeps pushing this issue (and it should) I foresee Obama pulling rank and invoking executive privilege once again. As a nation we are in a very precarious era. When agencies have absolutely no congressional oversight, we become a dictatorship or a monarchy by definition. The current administration that promised to be the most transparent, is anything but. It seems Obama “leads” better by fiat rather than inside of a constitutional construct.

As a nation we need to show courage and begin a debate about what role Islam is going to play in our government. Will we cower when liberals attack and call us “bigoted” for asking relevent and important questions? We can not. We must stand courageous in the face of name calling. When we have come to a place in our society where the secretary of DHS is not concerned about men using their personal computers to access classified government information, and known terrorist sympathizers holding meetings in the White House, we are in grave danger. If Janet Napolitano is not going to perform her job as secretary of DHS, why do we have a DHS? We should not cower from the debate simply because it’s politically incorrect to broach these subjects or because of a political agenda. We have already done that, in 1999 when Osama Bin Laden stated that blood would run in the streets of New York city, no one stood against his statement. We also done the same with the Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Hasan, over and over people in the know were reporting to the FBI that he was very anti-American and a possible threat, the FBI did not investigate because they were fearful the investigation would be seen as an “Islāmic witch hunt”. All because of political correctness, thirteen people were shot in cold blood. The man had S.O.A. on his government (Army) business card, S.O.A. meaning Soldier Of Allah. To add insult to injury the government will still not call the acts perpetrated by Hasan a terrorist act, they consider it an incident of “work place violence”. Also, I don’t remember anyone mentioning gun control after Hasan killed thirteen.

We recently seen how political agenda has driven the gun control debate after the tragic shooting spree in Aurora, Colorado. Before the victims were all properly identified news anchors were already blaming those they disagree with politically, pushing accusations on Tea Party members. Guns needed to be outlawed so people would be “safe”. Just a day later, an Afghan police officer opened fire on American contractors killing three. No where did you hear anyone calling for the outlaw of guns in Afghanistan. One shooting spree fits the liberal agenda narrative, and one did not. So one gets the nod for a refreshed attack on the second amendment rights of American people, and one is ignored, because only one story is politically expedient. I bring this up because I want the American people to drive the debate regarding Islam in the government, and not another terrorist attack, God forbid.

Repealing Obamacare Is Not Enough


A recent step in the right direction happened on July the 11th. The house of representatives voted for a full repeal of Obamacare, 244 yeas to 185 nays. Of course the liberal media cried foul, they thought even taking a vote on repealing Obamacare was a giant waste of taxpayer money. Bob Schieffer, of CBS’ Face the Nation, lamented how the house was wasting so much money on a repeal vote. This concern he showed is interesting, because the house has been sending legislation to the senate since the Tea Party takeover of the house in 2010. So far, there has not even been so much as a preliminary vote in committee on any of those bills, however I haven’t seen or heard any news coverage of the senate doing nothing, or wasting taxpayer money. There’s not been any lamenting or hand wringing of any sort over a do nothing senate.

While voting to repeal Obamacare is a commendable and noble thing to do, this is merely not enough. In our hyped up election season, conservatives have forgotten the additional fights that have been picked with the U.S. Constitution. We are predisposed to conversing about who’s going to be Romney’s Veep choice, or which poll has Obama and Romney in a dead heat, all the while, there are some bills that slid through Congress that should have never been voted out of committee. Some of them were slid through even with the conservative takeover of the house, which should be alarming to a great many Americans. One of the laws stretches all the way back to the months after 9/11, and was signed by a Republican President.

Chronologically, alongside Obamacare, the NDAA act, the Dodd-Frank act, and the USA Patriot act should be on the chopping block also. The NDAA act is so egregious in its powers, it is almost self-explanatory why it should be repealed. If you read conservative or libertarian news sites, you could probably name off four or five unconstitutional provisions from it, but for the sake of those who may be seeing this for the first time, I would like to point them out again. Not in the 236 year history of our country has the armed forces been allowed to apprehend, and arrest American citizens, under the NDAA act this is possible. You can also be held or interned, without charge, indefinitely, which subverts habeas corpus. You also do not have a right to a fair and speedy trial. All these constitutionally protected citizen rights are thrown out the window with this one piece of legislation. Congress, repeal it!

I want to share a quote with you concerning the Dodd-Frank Act. In a recent article written for Townhall.com in honor of the birth of our nation, Hillsdale College President, Dr. Larry Arnn said concerning freedom and how the government is now acting:

Moreover, it [Federal Government] governs increasingly without authority from the branches that are elected by the people. The new Dodd- Frank finance law creates something called a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This agency does not get its budget from Congress. Rather, its money comes from a guaranteed percentage of the budget of the Federal Reserve, which gets its money from its operations as a bank. Congress is even specifically forbidden in the law to hold hearings into the budget of the new CPFB. And it has wide examining power over every form of consumer finance in the nation. In unfettered scope of authority, and in near perfect separation from popular control, it is different from anything before it in America.

In other words, the congress passed, and the president signed another unconstitutional act. Here’s a little quick history on the Federal Reserve, it’s a corporation with no congressional oversight and it rules our entire economy. Not only that, it was conceived “supposedly” to stop financial bubbles that hurt our economy, at least that is one way it was “sold” to the American people. (Has that worked? No.) Now, the congress has passed what amounts to 311 million miniature Federal Reserves (or Fed Reserve II I call it.). Under this act, the Federal Government has the authority to monitor your personal credit card and bank statements, all under the false pretense of protecting you, the consumer from the big bad banks and business’. Here is some irony for you, this act was “written” by Chris Dodd, and Barney Frank, both of whom had a direct role in the housing bubble that caused the current economic malaise we still suffer from. You also might remember that Obama named former Ohio Attorney General, Richard Cordray to lead this new Consumer Protection Bureau. Obama appointed him by fiat while congress was still in session, without a confirmation by the senate, which is unconstitutional. This guts the constitution’s 4th amendment. Congress, repeal it!

Now the grandaddy of all unconstitutional acts The USA Patriot Act. This act you will remember, was an absolute “necessity” shortly after September 11th. We had to find a way to stop terrorists from gaining a foothold inside our borders again. You may agree, you may not, but 9/11 could have been stopped years before it happened. All we had to do was act on information we were told publicly by Osama Bin Laden in 1999. We were attacked at the World Trade center in 1993 under Clinton. We knew already that radical Islamists wanted to strike us. If our intelligence agencies and other “alphabet soup departments” (ie. NSA, CIA, FBI, ATF) had shared info with one another, we could have stopped the terrorists. Therefore, we could have continued without a Dept. of Homeland Security, A Dept. of Transportation Safety Administration, (who will soon be at all transportation depots, ie. bus stations, and train stations). These Government Departments need dismantled. Congress, repeal it!

There is only one way out of our current situations concerning the manifold attacks on our constitution, we must go to the polls November 6th and vote for more conservative, libertarian, and limited government men and women to represent us. Men and women like Rand Paul, Allen West, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Jason Chaffetz, Jim Demint, Nikki Haley, Jan Brewer, Michelle Bachman and many more.

Conservatives, Libertarians, Patriots All – Remember, Remember the 6th of November.

I am proud to be an American, a Patriotic American because of stories like this!

Fellowship of the Minds

The following is an abbreviated version of “What Honor Looks Like” — Chris Muller’s account about what happened one morning on May 23, 2012, at Gate 38 of Reagan National Airport, Washington, D.C.:

“Shortly before 9:30 am, over the loud speakers, a US Airways gate attendant announced that an Honor Flight of World War II veterans would be arriving momentarily and encouraged anyone passing by to help greet them.  Five or six people looked like they were officially part of the welcoming committee

But – then it happened and frankly, I wasn’t expecting it.  All throughout the terminal, people left their gates and gathered around gate 38.  A few active military personnel in plain clothes approached the gate attendant and politely asked if they could  join in the salute within the jet way as the heroes first stepped off the plane.  Every human being in the terminal stood…

RESTORE THE FOUNDATION FRIDAYS – Nathan Hale – (1755-1776)


Nathan Hale was born on the 6th day of June, 1755 in the town of Coventry, Connecticut. He was born to Richard Hale who had moved to Coventry from Newbury Mass. In 1748. His Mother’s name was Elizabeth Strong. Richard and Elizabeth had twelve children of which Nathan was sixth among them. Nathan’s father was a successful farmer and he was able to provide very good educations for all his children. He attended Yale University with his bother Enoch. He enrolled at the age of fourteen and graduated at the age of eighteen. There is record that upon commencement day Nathan took what was called a pert, and it is recorded that he graduated in the top thirteen of his class. It appears that Nathan was going to become a Christian minister upon leaving college like his brother Enoch did but, as it was with most young men he became a teacher. In 1774 he accepted an appointment at the Union Grammar School which was a public school in the town of New London, Connecticut. The school was paid for by the men of the town to prepare their children for higher learning. In a time when most women were taught at home, or not taught at all, Nathan devoted the hours from five to seven in the morning to teaching no less than twenty young women at a time. Then at seven a.m. he would begin teaching the young men for the rest of the day.

He was a devoted militia member. When word of Lexington and Concord made it to New London in 1775, there was a town meeting held. At this town meeting it is said that a Nathan said of the British attack, “Let us march immediately” and he then said, “and never lay down our arms until we obtain our independence”. It is said that this was one of the first times the word ‘Independence’ was used to describe the struggle between the Colonists and the British. He became a Captain in the Continental Army, and a spy for the cause of liberty.

In September, 1776, the British occupied New York city. Nathan was deep behind enemy lines when he was captured by the British. His personal effects were searched, they included a sketch book of drawings that Hale had made of enemy fortifications and other Continental documents, upon the discovery of these he gave his name and rank in the American Army.  He was arrested as a spy, sentenced with no trial by General Howe to be hung on the morning after his capture. When his execution neared, he asked for a clergyman to attend to him, this request was met with a most egregious no. After being turned down by Howe for the attention of a clergyman, Nathan asked that he might have a Holy Bible, this request was met with the same answer. So, as Hale sat alone waiting to die he only found mercy in an officer that asked that Nathan be left in his custody. The officer that had custody of Nathan provided him paper and pen so he might write a letter to his mother and a military officer brother. When the time came, 11:00 am on September 22nd, 1776, it is said of an eyewitness that Nathan Hale walked solemnly to the noose, turned to the men attending his execution and said his famous words, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country”! This from a young man of twenty-one years of age, what courage this man possessed, even in the face of death, he was defiant, he knew his cause was just. A true patriot! The execution of Nathan Hale

It is reported that Sir William Howe made the following entry in his Orderly Book on the day of the execution: “A spy from the enemy by his own full confession, apprehended last night, was executed this day at 11 o’clock in front of the Artillery Park.”

Remember Nathan Hale this friday, he died for the freedom that we enjoy today.

Obamacare’s First Kiss of Death


image

In my home state, the political jockeying has been intense already this election cycle. Ohio, is of course very important to the presidential elections because of our swing state status.

Recently both candidates have been criss-crossing Ohio to grab up the all so coveted independent vote. As important as this election is, I don’t know how anyone can be “independent”. This is the most polarized I have ever seen our political climate. I think most people have already made their mind up.

Obama stopped in to Ann’s Place a diner in west Akron yesterday around 8:30 a.m. to have a little breakfast. (His second of the day) I wonder if Michelle knows? Just a few hours after hugging Obama, Josephine “Ann” Harris the restaurant owner was in her home and began complaining of a tingling feeling and that she did not feel well. She was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. She had suffered a full cardiac arrest in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, and could not be revived.

I in know way mean to make light of the passing of Ann Harris. However, I would like to point out some simularities between this incident and other’s that the nation faces.

Since Obama has successfully sucked the life out of the nation and the economy, is it possible when he hugged this poor woman he sucked the life outta her also? Of course I’m being satirical, but I think this may be an omen. Obamacare is certainly the grim reaper to our nation. Yes, Obamacare = Kiss of Death. How bad does this look in this election season? The president shows up, hugs a business owner, and she dies? ! Holy Cow! Damn the luck!

Remember America, Obamacare = Kiss of Death!

Convicted Terrorist to protest Mitt Romney

Convicted Terrorist to Protest Mitt Romney

06 Jul 2012 3:00 PM

A convicted terrorist is leading liberal groups to protest Mitt Romney and the Kochs. That’s right, there’s a fundraiser for Mitt Romney that the Kochs are in.

So the liberals are rallying. They’re rallying with a convicted terrorist, Andy Stepanian,

His claim to fame is being characterized as succeeding “where Karl Marx, the Baader-Meinhof gang and the Red Brigades failed.” He’s quite proud of it. And the left will mark with him to protest Mitt Romney.

Remember friends, this isn’t the first terrorist to support Barack Obama. It won’t be the last.
