Merry Christmas, again

Blogger still hates me and it seems I'm only able to upload pictures one post at a time. I even made the "switch" to the new blogger this afternoon and I'm still unable to post multiple pictures. So, here's the photo of my living room Christmas tree. Hopefully I'll work the bugs out and post more Christmas Eve photos.

Merry Christmas

It's official, blogger hates me and my pictures. Since Christmas Eve, I've been trying to upload pictures to blogger. The only photo I was able to add was this picture of my family room tree. None of the "help" topics worked and I even tried to create a new post and upload pictures to no avail. The camera settings haven't changed since vacation this summer and I was able to add pictures on the same settings for the last 6 months. So I'll post this picture along with belated Christmas salutations just to let everyone know I'm still around.

CAIR vs. Left Behind

I am one of the millions who read the "Left Behind" series. Authors Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim La Haye have help hundreds of thousands of people realize they're sinners in need of a Savior, Jesus Christ. Left Behind has expanded into movies and host of other items based on the last book of the Bible. Keeping up with popular culture, they've jumped into the video game market with "Left Behind: Eternal Forces" just in time for the Christmas holiday. Based on the series, players control forces from a vantage point high above the action. They do not personally participate in the action, they command units to perform tasks. No blood and gore as in other popular games, players conduct physical and spiritual warfare. Sounds harmless enough and something I'd put under my tree for a youngster.

Well, the muslim community, led by CAIR, have their panties in bunch over what they're calling a "convert or die" game. Once again CAIR is letting muslims know they're offended. This week, all the whine-o-grams have been telling the RoP faithful how offend they are and how to articulate those feelings by crafting an email or fax to H. Lee Scott Jr Wal-Mart CEO.
Using the "pay to play" media outlet, CAIR claims "it has received complaints about the game. The game reportedly rewards players for either converting or killing people of other faiths.
Now why would muslims buy a video game aimed at Christian audiences? Has CAIR actually looked at the game to see if the rewards players receive are in fact for converting or killing people of other faiths?

The whole "convert or die" concept CAIR is whining about sounds just like islam. Ask Jill Carroll, Steve Centanni and his cameraman, Olaf Wiig. Weren't they given the option to "convert or die?" I would think muslims would embrace such a game forcing a religious conversion.

Nihad Awad, CAIR spokesman, said "We believe the message this game is promoting is one of religious intolerance. The game's enemy team includes people with Muslim sounding names." Awad also claims "We have no desire to stifle creativity or inhibit freedom of speech. However, it is our duty as America's leading Islamic civil rights group to promote mutual understanding and ensure the safety of Americans of all faiths." Really? Tell me Nihad, when was the last time CAIR came out in support of anything in the Jewish or Christian communities?

When asked about the arab and muslim sounding names, Left Behind Games' President Jeffrey Frichner said, "Muslims are not believers in Jesus Christ and therefore cannot be on the side of Jesus in the game." Yep, that's what I believe. What's the problem CAIR?

I haven't seen the game but I plan to download the free demo from the Left Behind: Eternal Forces website. The ummah cries foul at the drop of a hat, but I don't see Christian groups being offended by an islamic prayer video game. There's a host of islamic video games and not all of them are moral or even civil for that matter. The muslim brotherhood has decided to use a video game to indoctrinate young muslims in the ways of hate and destruction. No Jewish or Christian outcry to ban these games teaching the future generation in the ways of jihad, and not the inner struggle to be a good muslim. These games train youngsters to hate and dominate. CAIR and the entire muslim community need to clean their own house before they bring a Dustbuster to mine.

Christmas cookies

Those who know and love me, realize that I have issues keeping Christmas presents from the recipient until, at least, December 24. I've been like this all my life. I love Christmas. Everything about the time between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve I love. The food, shopping, decorations and gift giving all send me into this season trance that I come out of on the first day of the new year. I don't get the "holidays are over" blues, I would just look at the calendar and count the days until my next paid holiday or vacation time. Yesterday I packed up my parents Christmas gift. They're simple, down to earth folks and really don't want or expect us to go over board (or even near the board for that matter). My parents are practical to a fault and we'll get into that later. A fine meal and some homemade cookies will really make my parents holiday.

This year, being unemployed, my mother wouldn't have accepted a "pricey" gift from us and would have insisted I take it back for a refund. We were raised knowing financial priorities. Pay your bills, buy food and save for a rainy day. My parents never had a credit card and the only things they ever financed were their cars and their home. To this day if they don't have the money for it they didn't need it that bad, this attitude taught us how to save and the value of a dollar. By no means are they cheap or stingy, they'd give you shirt off their back and over the years many a relative came knocking on their door looking for a loan that many times fell into default. My brother and I wanted for nothing growing up. For my high school graduation, a brand new 1984 Monte Carlo sat in the drive upon my return from 8 days in Hawaii. Now, does that sound like neglect? When my dad had heart surgery 13 years ago the bill that insurance didn't cover was $85,000.00. My mother had the money, she got writers cramp from signing what seemed like endless stacks of 25 and 50 dollar savings bonds purchased every 2 weeks for the last 30 years. This would qualify as a rainy day. A ham, 10 pound sack of potatoes and a fruit basket my brother and I delivered to the neighbors whose down syndrome child always seemed to be in the hospital taught us charity.

They're in their early 60's with a home that's been paid off for 21 years, 12 years early on a 40 year mortgage. Dad is retired from a job he held for 38 years and receives a tidy pension and social security, they are blessed and are living in comfort well within the means.

Celebrating Christmas with tons of gifts was not a priority, knowing why we celebrate was. The meal my mother prepared was on par with any fine restaurant. Turkey and ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, potato salad, mini (my mother broke them in half) corn on the cob, turkey gravy and ham gravy. If you've never heard of ham gravy you're really missing a treat. My mom cooks a whole, semi-boneless ham with crushed pineapple, (lots of) brown sugar, ginger ale and 2 tablespoons of mustard. This little bath, when cooked for 6 hours and is thickened, will create a deliciously sweet gravy. Anyway, mother would create a beautiful relish tray including black olives, hot cauliflower, pepper rings, horseradish and pickles all adorned with radish roses. Now if you could actually get up from the table for a few hours and take a nap, the deserts that awaited you was again on par with a downtown bakery window display. Lemon meringue, chocolate and butterscotch pies (with real whipping cream). A chocolate cake with homemade white icing decorated with red and green. Carrot cake with cream cheese icing tinted a light orange. Chocolate chip, oatmeal and decorated (by my brother & me) sugar cookies. And my most favorite cookie, my mothers kolachkies. This recipe was from her mother-in-law and even my grandmother loves my mothers version of the cookie. I've heard a lot of different people call kolachkies angel wings, these are not the same cookie. It's a butter and cream cheese dough rolled and cut into squares then filled (only 2 opposite corners brought to the center and pinched together) with red raspberry (my favorite), pineapple, peach and apricot preserves and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Light layers of cream cheese dough combined with the sweetness of the preserves is the best cookie on the tray.

Well I packed up my parents Christmas "gift" for delivery. Snowballs, chocolate chip, oatmeal and ricotta cheese cookies along with a Harry and David "Fruitcake Confection" since I was not making one this year. I make an awesome fruitcake. This will more than satisfy them and I'll hear about "buying" the fruitcake. A nice Christmas card a few strings of curling ribbon and you've got a beautiful gift fit for any simple, down to earth folks. Made with love from a daughter who was taught the real meaning of Christmas.

I'm unemployed....

Today is the forth day of my unemployment and I'm going insane. I feel worthless, not monetarily worthless, I'm eligible for unemployment and I received a 4 week severance check next week. I feel like I no longer have a purpose. As "Lead Auditor" or quasi supervisor, I directed 4 associates. I had a reason to report to work, people depended on me for guidance and to be the buffer between management and the "boots on the ground." Our manager was in Buffalo, NY so there was very little micro-managing, we knew what had to be done.

This was the perfect job. Even though I live 1.1 miles away I was a few minutes late almost every day. In the summer I could have walked to work, but I never did. With my manager in Buffalo I toiled unmolested and instructed a very competent crew. I enjoyed the people I worked with, I liked what I did and I was good at it.

I'm still waking up at 5:00am. I make coffee and turn on the computer. I used to hurry up and post so I could be the first one in the shower. Now I can take my time and shower at ten o'clock, I'm not in a hurry. Perhaps I'll learn to sleep in, but there's something about the early morning quiet that calms the soul.

I'm not getting nostalgic, no one really likes to work. We work to better our lives and to provide for our family. I worked to better our lives and now find ourselves in a comfortable position where I don't have to work. We are blessed. This would've been a dream come true, 20 years ago. Christopher turned 21 in September, so I'm not being pressured to volunteer for playground duty or whip up 2 dozen cupcakes for a holiday classroom party. My son doesn't need me home, now.

I should look at the positive aspects of my situation. Frying chicken, making (spaghetti) sauce or pot roast. I can bake cookies while reading a book or scrubbing the kitchen floor. Going to the grocery store alone will definitely save money. The little side business I have provides extra cash and should keep me busy until I figure out which path to take.

For now, I'm unemployed. . . .

Bush OK, but terrorist effigy is offensive

If this effigy looked like President Bush, the people of Marin would cheer. So says the owner, Pat La Tray. Pat hung up the straw "terrorist" during Halloween and decided to keep him hangin'. "It is a patriotic symbol," La Tray said. "It has nothing to do with race or religion." Nearby resident Pilar Sinelnikoff said she doesn't care what La Tray says. The effigy offends her every time she walks by it. "I'm appalled he calls himself an American," she said. "He's pathetic." . . .
Nong La Tray who is a citizen of Thailand and moved here in 2002, said muslims were oppressive in her home country, "they're not good people."

CAIR's Ibrahim Hooper is calling for more of the same, "I don't think this would promote interfaith understanding."
Yes Ibrahim, we infidels need to understand your faith. You muslims don't need to understand our culture, right. It's called free speech, do you understand?

During the hajj, CAIR wants you to know your rights!

Raise the terror alert it's another muslim holy day. As muslims go off to their hajj this year, CAIR wants everyone to be aware of your rights while flying. The latest whine-o-gram is intended to remind pilgrims of their rights and this year CAIR offers a toll-free 'hotline' (1-800-784-7526) so offended muslims can report airport profiling incidents.

They've also compiled a handy dandy pocket guide for American muslims. This little booklet has helpful hints from everything on writting a letter to the editor and knowing your muslim employee rights to reacting to anti-muslim hate crimes.

There's one thing CAIR forgot to inform fellow RoP followers, flying is a privilege, not a right. In this post 9/11 world, we need to profile. Not racial or religious profile, but terrorist profile. There is a difference.

Shock of the day: Emerson lecture to be protested

It seems free speech does not apply to terrorism expert Steven Emerson. His lecture "The Grand Deception: Militant Islam, the Media and the West," is scheduled for 7:30 tonight (Monday). Emerson is the author of the 2002 bestseller "American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us" and founder and executive director of The Investigative Project, which keeps a database of intelligence on islamic and middle eastern terrorist groups. I also encourage you visit his blog, Counterterrorism, where an "A" list of expert contributors opine on the threat among us.
A lecture on radical islamic infiltration of America at the Tucson Jewish Community Center will be protested by the usual suspects, islamists and western useful idiots. According to literature promoting his talk, Emerson is expected to speak about how militant islamic individuals and groups have insinuated themselves into western society. He contends that islamist extremists living in the U.S. often pretend to be moderate while secretly carrying out a terrorist agenda in funding, organizing and coordinating the activities of radical islamic groups. No wonder CAIR is hoping to suppress this orator. We'll see if the Emerson lecture will be canceled amid pressure by fringe muslim groups like the Women in Black.

Silencing opposing views is a full-time job for many muslim activists including the MSA at Brown University.

Nonie Darwish, "Now They Call Me Infidel" author, was scheduled to speak about the twisted hatred and radicalism she grew to despise in her own culture. But the event was canceled. Brown University campus group, Hillel, had originally extended the offer then buckled under the pressure put on them by the muslim student association. It appears Darwish's comments are "too controversial" and muslim students insisted she be denied a platform at Brown. Hillel claims they didn't want to upset its "beautiful relationship" with the muslim community.

Interesting? Brown has no problem hosting anti-Israel events such as Palestinian Solidarity Week without anyone being offended. It seems the politically correct thing to do is bash America and educate infidels. The corruption of academic standards and lack of intellectual openness run rampant among our most elite colleges and universities. Dissenting views used to be encouraged on American campuses, now it appears exploiting the most radical positions and suppressing the voices of those who hold conservative opinions has become customary. Under the guise of multiculturalism we're ushered into a shade of grey where good and evil no longer exist.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....

This is the view from the office (also known as the computer room) of "Nuggets of News" in NEO. We've been under a "winter storm watch" since Wednesday evening. The "snow belt", which is east of Cleveland, is expecting 12-16 inches and the rest of us can expect to receive 6-10 inches.
As we look out though my dinning room siding door and check my "deck meter" it appears we're approaching the 6 to 8 inch mark. Since Hershey has been blessed with Beagle and not Lab legs, we'll have to take him out though the garage to do his business.

Its 21 degrees with slight flurries as the forecasters suspend the storm watch. (They say) We can expect to see clearing sky's with peaks of sun and diminishing snow. Well, not from my perspective. But that's OK, I am one of the few people who absolutely love the snow and the nastier the better. I love a blizzard!

Fitness USA vs. CAIR....again

This past April I had a post about Fitness USA and their run in with CAIR. That time it was over the right some (RoP) members thought they had to exercise in complete freedom from the opposite sex. Of course CAIR got involved and Fitness USA caved.

In November my post titled "Throw imama from the plane" illustrated the American vigilance on the war on terror by reporting suspicious behavior. The behavior by 6 imams traveling by plane and completing their obligatory evening prayer in the airport terminal was not what got them tossed off the flight. Their behavior on the aircraft caught the attention of passengers and led to their removal.

What do these two posts have in common? CAIR, praying, Fitness USA and intolerance. Now it seems muslims believe they have the right to pray anywhere unmolested, while flipping the finger to the rest of America. It seems Fitness USA is going up against CAIR once again because a woman was interrupted during one of her obligatory prayer times at the gym. The details are vague and only says the muslim woman was offended. CAIR was there, Johnning on the spot, to asist her in her time of need, assuring that her rights were violated. With total disregard for her fellow patrons, this woman (and other muslims) believes she has no responsibility for her actions. Acting with complete impunity, these people (of faith) act like the own the joint (America) and want us to conform to their culture.

My fellow blogger, Malott, had a great post on this same topic. To quote Chris, let me say; So bring out the cartoons, interrupt the prayers, and throw Imam(a) from the plane. We will not be intimidated. Our laws will not be infected with Sharia. We will not be colonized.

I, too, will not be colonized or marched into dhimmitude. These people aren't looking for the same rights as everyone else in this great nation, they're looking for special rights. Are they special or does the religion that encompasses their lives make them feel inferior? The victim mentality comes from a forced failure to assimilate to their host country and culture. If I had to be covered from head to toe, couldn't drive, work or talk to a man who I wasn't related to I, too, would want ALL women in this country to be just like me. If I can't be like them (American women) I'd be beating a path to every CAIR office in America.

Dennis Prager in CAIR cross-hairs

CAIR released a "FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE" whine-o-gram today urging the dismissal of Prager from his United States Holocaust Memorial Council position due to his "bigoted, intolerant and divisive views" referring to a November 28, 2006 column. In the article titled, "America, Not Keith Ellison, decides what book a congressman takes his oath on" Prager gave his opinion about Keith Ellison's decision to take his oath of office on a koran. The comments aren't hateful or bigoted. If you read it you'll see he makes a lot of sense. If you allow the koran, what happens if we elect a member of the church of scientology, does he bring "Dianetics" to the swearing in ceremony? How about the Nazi party member, would "Mein Kampf" be used? A point should be noted that in no way is he comparing the koran to either of these books or islam to those systems of belief. Prager tries to make the point that the Bible has been the foundation by which this nation was created and to deny this is to deny our history.

President Bush recently appointed Prager to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, the governing board of the museum, for the remainder of a five year term expiring January 15, 2011. In a letter sent to Council Chairman Fred S. Zeidman, CAIR wrote
'No one who holds such bigoted, intolerant and divisive views should be in a policymaking position at a taxpayer-funded institution that seeks to educate Americans about the destructive impact hatred has had, and continues to have, on every society. As a presidential appointee, Prager's continued presence on the council would send a negative message to Muslims worldwide about America's commitment to religious tolerance."
Again, the whine-o-gram gives the contact information to which angered muslims could send "polite" letters of concern. I don't see how the position Prager holds could be connected to his views on Keith Ellisons decision to use the koran. The election of a muslim, in and of itself, concerns me and I pray the voters in the Gopher state wake up in 6 years. The middle east is closely monitoring this controversy and I wonder where's Ellison's loyalty, to the United States of America or to islam.

Pig races used to show mosque is not welcome

How could someone be offended by these cuddly pink slabs of salty breakfast meats? These are stars in the making just like Seabiscuit and Secretariat. Well, the Katy islamic association doesn't and told the owner, Craig Baker, to pack up and move, saying "a mosque and a marble shop didn't go too good together." The islamic association denies the comment was made and claims they came into the community with open arms.
Besides fear of the unknown, residents have raised concerns over how this mosque will look and effect property values. Parking, traffic congestion and drainage issues are all going to be addressed with the county. Even though no permits have been applied for, construction on a parking lot has already started. Yep, we muslims don't want to cause any problems here. Craig Baker said the pig races will begin before the end of the year. I will bring the results to you as soon as I get the whine-o-gram.

Pig races to deter mosque

I love the American "can-do" attitude. When someone tries to muscle you out of your land they get the message loud and clear. The folks doing the muscling are, of course, the victim-hood minded members of the religion of peace. Baker Road in Katy Texas has 2 big signs, one announcing a mosque is coming. The other (I just love this) advertises Friday night pig races. Besides traffic and drainage issues, the residents believe a mosque will be disruptive to the 15 homes that surround the plot of land purchased by the Katy islamic association. Craig Baker, whose family named the road, owns pigs and plans to race them every Friday night if the mosque is built. Baker also claims KIA tried to pressure him into selling his home shortly after purchasing the land. KIA said they did no such thing and the pig races would be "a slap in the face." Baker said the pig races are intended to send a message that he's not budging from his home. As of this writing, there's been no date set for the mosque ground breaking or the first pig race.

Glenn Beck in the CAIR cross-hairs

I used to be a regular Glenn Beck listener during his 3 or 4 year run in the Cleveland area and found him to be brutally honest about himself and the issues of our time. A Florida radio host who brought Terri Schiavo into the national spotlight years before the famous cable television death watch. Beck organized rallies and helped raise money for the family's legal battle with her husband. When the war in Afghanistan started, Beck held rallies in many of his syndicate cities, including the Cleveland rally which I attended in sub-zero weather. Telling the millions of listeners about his mothers suicide, his drinking problem that brought about a divorce from his first wife, his special needs daughter and the faith that helped turn his life around. All of his listeners really got a look at the man behind the microphone.

The Glenn Beck special broadcast on CNN, Exposed: The Extremist Agenda, is now the target of CAIR and Media Matters. After his appearance on Good Morning America, Media Matters condemns Diane Sawyer for her introduction, calling Beck "television and talk-radio host ... who has said it's time for the world to stop buckling to the pressure of radical Islam." without mentioning he's a conservative. Now that's damning isn't it. I watched the special Beck hosted and found it to be very revealing and in line with everything I've heard and read about radical islam. Spinning apocalyptic impunity by interjecting Becks faith (he's a Mormon) is taking the focus off the real issue, radical islam and muslim hate around the world. Nationwide, islamic panties are in bunch because Diane Sawyer didn't identify Beck as a "self-identified conservative who has a history of making derogatory statements about Islam and Muslims" is more victim mentality. I'm sorry, but there's problem with islam that can only be corrected from within. When muslims finally remove the vial of denial and address the fanatical crisis, maybe then we'll see global tranquility. We are slowly moving toward an inability to critique islam by threat of violence.

Turkey welcomes the Pope

Yes, Turkey is a fine example of a "secular" islamic state. At the last minute, a visit to the Blue Mosque, was added to the itinerary. The first step toward papal dhimmitude, following the rest of Europe into the abyss.

Throw "imama" from the plane.....

As this story continues to develop, it seems it was intentionally executed to draw more attention to the "profiling problem" in this country. The fear and prejudice is real and by acting in a manner that would draw out this fear. Asking for seat belt extensions, standing up in unison, and praying shortly after boarding a plane is not a first amendment right, not after 9/11. This is a case of "yelling fire in a crowded theater" plain and simple. These "men of faith" concocted this plan in order to fabricate a "civil rights violation" lawsuit. If allowed to go to trial, it will surely be a circus. These innocent imams were only exercising their right to religious freedom.

Omar Shahin, spokesman for the humiliated imams, is affiliated with the "Kind Hearts" charity, a Hamas linked organization, shut down by the US Treasury Department. This Omar Shahin is also on record expressing doubt that Muslims were behind the 9/11 attacks. Over at Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer has more info about this fellow RoP follower. There's much more to this story, we just have to dig a little deeper. As the saga continues, I'll post new developments.

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

You just can't do that!

After the 9/11 attacks, by muslim men, things in this country have changed. Flying, as we used to know it, has changed. Removal of shoes, water is now banned and we must say good-bye at the curb instead of the jet way. We tolerate these intrusions because we've suffered the deadly consequence of putting convenience before security.

Since the attack, Americans have been vigilant, on alert. Our elected leaders asked postal workers, cable installers and meter readers to report anything they deemed suspicious to the FBI. We have taken that task seriously, so when 6 muslims stand up in unison and start praying, it's reported. I'm sorry, but you just can't do that in this country. 19 muslims took over 4 planes and murdered 3000 innocent people on a beautiful Tuesday morning.

The whine-o-gram sent out today insists we infidels are ignorant regarding islam. These honorable men were just reciting their required evening prayers like every other muslim around the world. CAIR will hold a news conference at its Washington, D.C., headquarters in reaction to what the civil rights group calls a "flying while Muslim" incident in Minnesota.

Six Imams, or Islamic religious leaders, were taken off a US Airways flight at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Monday night because of "suspicious activity." The Imams, who were handcuffed and questioned for several hours by authorities before being released, told CAIR they suspect the "suspicious activity" cited by authorities was the performance of normal evening prayers offered by members of the group in the airport before boarding the flight.

The detained Imams also denied reports that they refused to leave the plane or that they chanted "Allah" as they were escorted from the flight. US Airways refused to allow the Imams to take another flight or to assist them in obtaining tickets on another airline.

CAIR was quick to assist the imams in their time of humiliation, assuring them their civil rights were violated. This wrong will be righted! Since 9/11 muslim have been and should be singled out for extra screening. Why are we ignoring the elephant in the room? The "religion of peace" is responsible for the daily carnage in Iraq, the proclamation to eliminate the entire Jewish faith and wanton destruction of America. Yes, islam has a problem.

Like I said before, 19 muslims seized 4 planes and murdered 3000 people. If the 19 were Catholics, I would be suspect of anyone walking around, beads in hand, praying the Rosary in an airport. I'd report them to the authorities because I felt uncomfortable. Is his embarrassment more important than my security? Muslims, not the infidels, need to recognize the fact they need to play a roll in making this country and fellow Americans feel safe. And if it means missing evening prayers in public, then so be it!

Update 4:37pm

CAIR is calling on the DoJ and TSA to conduct thorough investigations into the incident in Minnesota and to ensure that security procedures of US Airways and other airlines conform to constitutional standards mandating the protection of religious freedom and other civil rights. CAIR is also seeking a meeting with U.S. Airways officials, (to muscle them into submission) to discuss the Minnesota incident and past complaints made by muslims.

The victim mentality used by CAIR has garnered NAACP support, calling the incident "deeply disturbing" and "This matter is unfortunately consistent with the experience of African-Americans who have been detained while simply traveling on our nation's highways, flyways and sidewalks. We encourage a thorough investigation into the matter and call for the passing of the End Racial Profiling Act, which is currently pending in Congress."

I had no idea we had an "End Racial Profiling Act" pending in congress. Who's sponsoring this bill? Why can't people realize this has nothing to do with race, islam is not a race. It has everything to do with young, suspicious looking, middle eastern males. The same kind that high-jacked 4 planes and murdered 3000 innocent people on September 11, 2001. That's the elephant in the "airport," why is America allowing CAIR, and now the NAACP, to weave a Persian rug to throw over it?

Beta Blogger

For weeks now, every time I logged in to "Blogger" I was asked to switch my blog to beta. Well, today I took 45 minutes and made the leap. I'm now blogging in beta, as beta, with beta. I not sure how I feel about it yet, I like the look of the dash board set-up and it seems easier to navigate. I was just looking for feedback from others who made the switch.

Linked again..Staff reprimanded

The watchdog staff over at "You Heard it Here" again noticed a huge spike in traffic today and as per our SOP (standard operating procedure) immediately alerted management. Once I was lucid, I grabbed my glasses, made some coffee and got to work. My investigation yielded a wealth of information. Not only was my post linked to another prominent website,, it seems a member of congress has visited "Nuggets of News." Needless to say, I was relieved to discover the increased volume was due to another link to my blog and not spam.

Once everything settled down, I pulled the team together so we could review the series of events that occurred earlier in the day. I commended him for following the SOP, but then chastised him for rousing me from my afternoon nap. I have placed Hershey Bar on paid administrative leave until further notice.

Campus police accused of "hate" crime...says CAIR

What do you do if a muslim disobeys the law? According to CAIR, nothing. When UCLA campus community service officers asked Mostafa Tabatabainejad, 23, to produce ID or leave the campus library, he refused. After repeated requests, the community service officers returned later with campus police who repeatedly asked that Tabatabainejad leave the library. As the officers attempted to escort him out, he went limp and continued to refuse to cooperate. It's at this point the details are biased. Some of the students told reporters the scofflaw was heading toward the door when officers arrived. Campus police conveyed contrary account of the events, which isn't surprising. While being escorting out of the building, Tabatabainejad can be heard shouting on the video, "Here's your Patriot Act, here's your ... abuse of power" and encouraged bystanders to join his resistance. It was at this point officers felt it necessary to use the Taser. LA police are reviewing the entire incident captured on video by another student.

Does that sound like a "hate" crime to you? CAIR believes otherwise. Because the "victim" is a muslim, CAIR is calling for an independent investigation of an incident. Today's "Immediate Release" whine-o-gram states their LA office was contacted by several students "who expressed their concern about possible civil rights violations by police officers" during the removal of the muslim student.

The community service officers who patrol the campus are performing a service that benefit the students by ensuring their safety. Rules are in place to protect students, by just providing an ID to these officers would have diffused the incident. The actions Tabatabainejad made as he was led away, proves his lack of respect for authority. Making a statement about the Patriot Act, while causing a scene, endorses the religious chip on his shoulder. Typical muslim victim mentality, an "I'm untouchable" declaration concocted for benevolent reaction.

I just don't buy it. The thug isn't above the law and got what he deserved for his combative behavior.

I've been linked...Again

It seems this humble blogger has become very popular with her "Florida congresswoman stands up to CAIR" post. "CAIR watch - Keeping an eye on hate" has linked my post on their web site, From what I can tell, this site is actively watching the islamic movement in this country. From CAIR to the pointing out the anti-America, anti-Israel bias in the media, the site is a wealth of information on the muslims in America. It's worth checking out.

I've also been linked to a Canadian bloggers site, The Black Kettle. He's an Evangelical Christian who supports the war on terror and his Canadian troops. I scanned it and seems like a good site. He mostly comments on islamic terror and the hold they're trying to take on our culture and values. Also worth checking out.

I must say up front. This in no way has inflated my ego. I will continue to report and opine on the enemy among us. As long as the "whine-o-grams" keep coming, I'll continue to do the dirty work so all of us can be informed.

I've been "linked"

The staff over at "You Heard it Here" alerted management to huge spike in traffic today. I know Skye Puppy linked to my post on Ginny Brown-Waite and just thought I was having spill over guest from her blog. Upon further investigation, this humble blogger discovered she had been linked to Robert Spencer's blog "Jihadi Watch." You can just imagine my complete elation when I discovered one of the foremost authorities on militant (jihadi hunter) islam had linked my post to his blog. Not that I wasn't pleased to see Skye link to me, but Robert Spencer's Dhimmi Watch, that's colossal.

We were also linked by another site, Al-Mahdi and the Anti-Christ. My "Florida Congresswoman Stands Up to CAIR" post is part of their "Links to recent news." I'm not exactly sure of the contents of the site, but It appears to have a lot of material on islamic and Christian escatology, harmless enough.

From all of us here at You Heard if Here... Nuggets of News the MSM won't report, I would like to thank everyone who was so kind as to link my post to their site. I'm extremely flattered by the gesture.

Thanks again!

Florida congresswoman stands up to CAIR

Ginny Brown-Waite is more courageous than most companies, school districts and city councils. Ms. Brown-Waite stood up to CAIR. The controversy came after she refused to condemn a prominent Hernando County Republican, Mary Ann Hogan, who called Islam a "hateful, frightening religion."

CAIR sent a fax to Ms. Brown-Waite asking her to join her fellow republican "dhimmis" and condemn the Hogans. Using congressional letterhead, she wrote a 3 page response that will most certainly touch off more whining by the terrorist front group. It is worth reading. Included in her letter, Ms. Brown-Waite reminds Ahmed Bedier of a meeting she was invited to at a prominent muslim doctors home. She was asked to "have some tea and see how his children were doing." When she arrived Ms. Brown-Waite was greeted by 8 or more men sitting in a semicircle waiting to have a discussion with her. From what I could gather from the letter, CAIR was looking for a member of congress who would be sympathetic to the CAIR-muslim view. When Ms. Brown-Waite told them, in no uncertain terms, she was not their guy, Ahmed Bedier told her they had done some research. Pointing out her Catholic background, Bedier told her something that was so outrageous she remembered it almost verbatim, "Catholic priests pose more of a terrorism threat by having sex with young altar boys than those who flew the planes into the World Trade Center." It was at this point Ms. Brown -Waite told the group that the Catholic priest did not kill 3000 innocent Americans and the authorities knew where they were, not hiding in some cave. From the tone of her response Ms. Brown-Waite sure put Ahmed Bedier and CAIR in their place. But you won't find that being reported by the MSM. I'm sure since that 2004 meeting, Ms. Brown-Waite has been in the CAIR crosshairs.

In this country you do not have the right to NOT be offended. If CAIR doesn't like a statement made by someone in a public forum, they have a right to plead their case accordingly. Seeking condemnation by our politicians is a stunt used by CAIR and any politician who folds to the pressure is missing their backbone. Ginny Brown-Waite should be held up as model to all those seeking to relocate their spine.

They're at the gate...CAIR candidate wins!

Did you ever think we'd hear shouts of "allahu akbar" during a political campaign speech in America? Well, we did. Only the news camera cut away to a confused anchorman before we could get the reaction from the liberal infidels there to support Keith Ellison.

As most of you probably know, Minnesota elected the first muslim to congress. Keith Ellison, CAIR's candidate, won the 5th district seat and made history on Tuesday. A celebratory whine-o-gram, congratulating Ellison, applauded voters for rejecting the "islam-bashing" and profiling that came from the Republican candidate. Make no mistake about it, Ellison has ties to radical islam. A former member of the Nation of islam, the congressman elect is very liberal and not your average muslim. A judicial "watch blog," Corruption Chronicles, has the low down on Ellison.

This is not good for our country. Not because Ellison is a muslim. Rather, it's his position as a former nation of islam spokesman and his shady past with the radical cult. Ellison's close ties to CAIR, a major contributor to his campaign, is also disturbing. These two organizations are hell bent on the destruction of America and Israel. I wonder if Ellison is an American or a muslim first? Where does he pledge his allegiance . I pray the voters in the gopher state wake up to the anti-America, anti-Israel agenda and remove Ellison in 6 years.

I won't be making a purchase...

Have you seen this postage on your mail lately?

Tuesday's whine-o-gram focused on the USPS issuing this stamp that commemorates the two most important islamic festivals, Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. On these days, muslims wish each other "Eid mubarak," the phrase featured in Islamic calligraphy on the stamp. "Eid mubarak" translates literally as "blessed festival."

The whining you hear comes from the internet campaign to boycott a holiday postage stamp in central Texas. Mustafaa Carroll representing the Texas chapter of CAIR (never let it be said that CAIR is one to miss an opportunity to play the victim). Carroll said, "I guess it's just become par for the course these days." Others from the islamic community claim a post 9/11 America hasn't been too friendly. (Ya think?) A retired postal worker had this to say, "From the little kids up, they're trained to be a terrorist and for us to honor. I'm sure there are good Muslims, but I just don't think it's appropriate for our country to honor their holidays. To honor a religion bent on our downfall, I don't think it's appropriate there are several websites calling for a boycott on the stamp."

Why all the whining now? The stamp was originally issued on 9/1/01, 10 days before America was attacked by 19 muslims. The internet campaign has been going on for years. When I first saw the stamp, I emailed the USPS and expressed my displeasure. To my utter shock I did get a reply, stating the need for diversity, that all Americans be represented and celebrated. Every year since the stamp was issued, CAIR creates a controversy, just before the "high holy days," forcing Americas attention is on the muslim religion. News sources will mention the holiday with a brief description on it's history. Bringing islam to the forefront of Americas psyche.

Carroll opined further, "I'm more concerned with the general community, and what it's going to look like in the years to come, because this war's going to pass and people aren't always going to be doing this and we have to get along after this is all said and done."

Sounds like CAIR has a long range plan for islam in America. That statement appears very confident in the outcome, pushing islam into the mainstream of American culture. This stamp is just another step towards dhimmitude.

Obsession, the movie

Last night FOX news channel aired "Obsession: The Threat of Radical islam" and included many excerpts from the new movie, Obsession, the movie. This low budget documentary is the brainchild of director Wayne Kopping. The FOX news special took an in-depth look at the movie and interviewed many of today's foremost experts on radical islam. Comments from Walid Shoebat and Steven Emerson to the daughter of a martyr, the hour long program stepped into a world many liberals want to ignore. It was eye-opening and chilling, even to me. Most of the video clips were of well known imams as they spew Friday venom, telling their congregations it's an islamic obligation to fight jihad against the kafirs who occupy muslim lands. Followers are told islam is in (the UK, America and down under) not to be equal to other religions, rather to be the only religion. World domination by an islamic caliphate. State run television programs in Iran, the PA and Saudi Kingdom re-enforce the myth that America wants to take over the world and is fighting a Christian war against islam. They also look into the school books used in Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the PA shows us exactly how these children are being taught to hate.

Walid Shoebat commented on the use of jihad and how many "moderates" try to explain away the term. In islam, they say, jihad means "struggle" or my personal struggle to be a good muslim. Shoebat made a powerful observation, pointing out that Adolph Hitler's Mein Kampf means my struggle as well and in 1945 the world found out Hitler wasn't kidding out his intentions. Just like Hitler, the islamic community is telling us what they're intentions are. When are we going to listen, after another 6 million are put to death?

If you have a chance this afternoon, FOX will be airing the program again, I strongly urge you watch it.

Picture of the week......

I'm a little late in posting this "Shot Seen 'Round the World."
Note to Kerry, don't mess with the U.S. military!

CAIR vs. Mark Steyn

Wednesday's whine-o-gram contained an action alert calling on Canadian muslims to react to an article by Mark Steyn titled, "The future belongs to Islam." The "fatwa" lists a few excerpts from the article in addition to telling muslims they're offended and islam has been insulted. CAIR uses this tactic knowing it'll incite the thin skinned ummah, calling down vengeance on Steyn. For their convenience CAIR includes email addresses, fax numbers and nice, clear talking points neatly outlined for the RoP faithful.

Just another example of muslims asking to be put above the fray, demanding special rights in a threatening (canceling of subscriptions) manner. Why is this behavior tolerated by the islamic community? Time and again we infidels are forced to respect islam, they 're not asking for equality, they're demanding islam be put above all other religions, never to be questioned or scrutinized.

Why the veil.......

As an imam "down under" tells us, "...The woman was behind Satan playing a role when she disobeyed God and went out all dolled up and unveiled and made of herself palatable food that rakes and perverts would race for. She was the reason behind this sin taking place."
During Friday sermons, Sheikh Taj Din Al Hilaly, has been preaching against Australian rape laws. Claiming a woman is responsible for being raped because she may wear a short skirt or put on make-up. Comparing a rape victim to a kilo of meat left unattended and eaten by cats.
The translation to a recent sermon also claims us infidels will end up in hell, "They are the worst in God's creation."
Now I see why the veil. Men who follow the religion of peace have no carnal self-control and can't be expected to act in a manner consistent with those of western men. Again we see an example of how special muslims are and an effort to explain away their unacceptable behavior. They're not responsible for the acts they commit, it's in the koran. If a woman is unveiled and I'm unable to control my hormones, I have to rape her. Makes perfect sense to me. That's why we need CAIR in America to point out how special muslims are and the need for "people of the book" to tolerate their unlawful behavior.

A koran in the toilet - Part IV

This prank and CAIRs reaction to it is starting to remind me of a child's temper tantrum. CAIR was joined by "other" muslim activist groups calling on Pace University to crack down on hate crimes after a second copy of the koran was found in a toilet at its campus. The whine-o-gram goes on to state,
"This incident meets the legal definition of a hate crime, "said Aliya Latif, a member of the Association of Muslim American Lawyers. "Indeed, this is no different from placing a burning cross in front of a house or painting a swastika on a locker."
The discovery of the islamic "holy book" in a toilet at Pace's lower Manhattan campus on October 13 was the latest in a series of acts of vandalism tinged with racial or religious overtones at the school. In addition to the korans found in a library toilet on September 21, and in October someone scrawled "racial slurs" (to which CAIR doesn't elaborate) on a student's car at the Westchester County satellite campus and on a bathroom wall. These are the incidents CAIR and AMAL refer to regarding the escalating incidents of "hate" at the university.
This laughable and much ado about nothing. CAIR never attended my high school let alone enter the restrooms. I think American muslims would be better served if CAIR would allow them to thinken their skin, insist on assimilation into American culture and once you leave your homes or mosque become immersed in Americanism.

A koran in the toilet - Part III

That's right, it seems Pace University, in lower Manhattan, is full of slippery handed muslims. They're probably to weak from the mandatory ramadan fast and dropped their holy book in the commode. I would post the link but it appears it has yet to be picked up by a news outlet. Maybe they found it to be unworthy. I love Skyepuppys comment on the first "desecration" incident,
So some Muslim treated his "holy" Koran so carelessly that it fell into the hands of some infidel, who tossed it in the can.
CAIR really should stop with the sensitivity training for the infidels and start training Muslims to take better care of their scriptures.

Yesterdays whine-o-gram again called for infidel education of the campus population. CAIR-NY civil rights director, Maryam Sayar Akbar said;
"We once again call on Pace University to take concrete measures to help educate the student population about Islamophobic bigotry and its negative impact on ordinary Muslims and on American society."

I find the timing all to convenient. The islamic holy month whine-o-grams are full of iftar community sharing and mosque open houses across the country. All this is done to show how giving and peaceful the ummah can be, never mind the homicide bombers and chants of death following Friday prayers. Death threats, and murderous riots when anyone claims islam has violent tendencies. This toilet-gate "hate crime" has no "there, there." When you understand CAIR's mission and see they've created a muslim "Voter Education Guide" with the by-line; CAIR does not endorse any one issue or candidate. Right... just more endorsement of the muslim victim mentality.

What should I feel?

All my loyal readers know my friend has been going through a tough time. I'm not going to rehash the details of her husbands affair or the pain she feels from the discovery. The Vegas trip was a great diversion from the pain at home, even the snags that hampered the beginning of the journey made looking back a little more interesting. Her pain has subsided enough for them to move forward in healing their broken marriage. Just when I believed the end of this painful tunnel was near, yet another blow was dealt to the already fissured union.

Last week the other woman received some bad news. Her son, a marine serving our country in Iraq, was injured while disarming an IED. He ultimately succumbed to his injuries. The woman is on FMLA for a month while arrangements for his burial at Arlington are being finalized. This news is painful for all of America. Another fallen hero.

As my friend struggles with yet another reminder of the event that brought her world to a crashing halt. She told me all the news reports lead with the story of his death. It seems he was a fine 23 year old young man serving his third tour in Iraq. My friend is conflicted. She feels connected to a fallen soldier she never met. Her heart breaks for the parents, even the woman who played a roll in ruining her marriage. When the news broke, her mind went into a fog. Normally her prayers are for the family of the fallen. Praying that the parents find peace and comfort from our Lord. For two days the story has loomed over her state and her home as she and her husband come to grips on how to react. She's said his death doesn't change who his mother is and what she did, however, the mother in her goes out to the adulteress. Mother to mother

CAIR aggressively search for "victims"

Today's whine-o-gram comes as an "Urgent Appeal" from CAIR. This ramadan appeal email greets the reader with a quote made by GOP congressional candidate Paul R. Nelson of Wisconsin. When asked about profiling Nelson said,
"Well, you know, if he comes in wearing a turban and his name is Muhammad, that's a good start"
That's enough to get your "jihadist" dander up, right? The message continues to ask "Have you or someone you know experienced bias similar to that expressed by the Wisconsin candidate?"
Sounds like they're searching for more victims of profiling and harassment. The whine-o-gram goes on to cite their own findings on anything CAIR deemed anti-muslim. Michael over at "A Second Hand Conjecture" did some digging into a few of the complaints and found a few unworthy statistics.
This innocent looking ramadan appeal email is a sheep in wolves clothing. Nothing like a CAIR anti-assimilation email to lift the spirits of your muslim neighbor. I can't understand how this organization is allowed to operate, unmolested, in this country. Their mission is clear, an islamic country formerly known as America.

What's the matter here?

Where have I been? When I was a kid, going to McDonald's was a treat. For 38 years, my dad worked the "swing" shift for LTV Steel. Swing shift meant you worked first shift one week, second shift the next and the next week you'd work third shift. (repeat until you retire) Once and a while when dad was working afternoons, my mom would treat us to McDonald's. Probably so she didn't have to cook. But it was a treat and not an every week event. Of course childhood restrictions were applied to the rare indulgence. Clean your room, do your homework and so on. When my son was old enough to enjoy the nations best fast food french fries, it was a treat as well. I can't speak for my mother, but it would explain all the Happy Meal toys at the bottom of his little suit case.

Yesterday I noticed that Arby's now accepts Visa and Mastercard. I almost rear ended the car in front of me. I was so astounded by this revelation, I embarked on a fact finding mission. Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's, Rally's, Mr. Hero and Subway also benefit from people who utilize these establishments to feed their families. It seems fast food restaurants have replaced the family dinner table. Gone are the days when mothers cooked meals, every day, and going out to eat was a family indulgence once the bills were paid. When mom deserved a break from the kitchen it wasn't for a hamburger she could have prepared at home for half the price. We were seated at a table, not standing at a counter, and gave our food order to someone who never handled money. Where have I been and when did this happen?

A koran in the toilet - Part II

CAIR supporters nationwide have to be celebrating. Last weeks desecration of a koran at Pace University has officially been recognized as a hate crime. It seems they (CAIR) pressured Pace university administrators into viewing the incident as bias-related, not a simple case of vandalism as initially stated. This "reclassification" is the result of collaborative efforts of CAIR-NY, the Association of Muslim American Lawyers (AMAL), the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force, the NYPD Community Affairs Bureau, and the Muslim Students Association at Pace. With that many "angry" muslims beating at your door insisting you see things their way, what choice did administrators have? Who wants a "fatwa" looming over your organization and run the risk of ending up like Theo or American icon, Ronald McDonald?
It this point I'm going to refer to a past post explaining why I believe islam is incompatible with western culture.

CAIR believes a koran found in a toilet is a "Hate Crime", give me a break!

Evil exists in the world. God fearing folks understand we're capable of horrific acts against our fellow man. The murdering of innocent Amish schoolgirls is one such incident. My fellow blogger, Malott, opines with passion. To add my own feelings would not do his post justice. I do beg the question, does anyone doubt this evil act was a "hate crime"?

Yesterday's whine-o-gram news brief details what CAIR believes to be a possible hate crime at Pace University in lower Manhattan. A paperback copy of a koran was found in the men's room toilet. CAIR-NY is calling on the university to treat the incident as a possible hate crime and sees this incident as evidence of the growing phenomenon of islamophobia in the United States. I'm sorry, I just can't equate the two acts and to do so would only belittle the true pain and suffering the entire Amish community will endure.

Unlike the perpetual victim that is the muslim mentality, the Amish understand evil exists. The dead will be buried, families will mourn. Absent is an outcry for the populace to undergo Amish "sensitivity" training. However, a town hall meeting was held yesterday for the Pace student population in order to create a better understanding of islam. I just don't get it!

Gitmo muslim detainees get special treatment during ramadan

Dates, nuts and honey are just a few of the "ramadan-specific" food items Gitmo terror suspects will received during the month long "holy" observance. Americas finest are working around the clock to provide the special meals that are doubled for their nighttime portions. In addition to providing medical monitoring to ensure detainees received adequate nutrients. Isn't that nice? Do you think our fighting men and women are allowed to have ham for Easter or champagne for New Years Eve celebrations while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan? I think not!

CAIR's daily "whine-o-gram" boasted of motions filed in federal court. CAIR's involvement is nothing more than a show of support and has no legal grounds. In the court challenge filed Friday, attorney Gaillard T. Hunt said muslim chaplains are needed help reduce suicide attempts among detainees. Since 2004 muslim chaplains have been banned following the arrest of former Army Capt. James Yee, the muslim chaplain accused of taking classified records. (Yee contends he was targeted because of his faith) Yee oversaw a staff of five chaplains, none of them muslim, a fact that sparked international criticism. A United Nations report earlier this year on conditions at the camp said the failure to provide muslim clergy for detainees violated minimum standards of treatment. The deference given to them under the guise of religion was unbelievable despite UN reports. Since the discredited "koran flushing" incident, guards were ordered to don medical gloves before touching a koran. Now, only civilian muslim interpreters are allowed to move and inspect the holy texts during cell searches. Military guards note that Korans have been used to pass messages and could hide weapons.

It's clear muslim prisoners in lockup often used religion as a wedge to get around the desires or authority of those above them and used religion to manipulate camp commanders. Due to their militant nature many procedures are stricter than those used by the federal Bureau of Prisons. These prisoners are not being held on traffic violations, they want to murder us. Let's stop treating them like normal criminals and handle them with the same regard the jihadist have for our military.

Holy month of terror

It's that time of year again, ramadan. At the first sighting of a full moon muslims worldwide begin the month long fast and us infidels will beef up security at airports and government buildings. Saturday marked the start of ramadan and true to fashion it was not without bloodshed. In the first reported attack of the holy month, at least 31 people were killed by a bomb in Iraq where calls for jihad echoed earlier threats of attacks in the Gulf and on Israel. A day of protests on the eve of ramadan saw no let-up in demands for the Pope to apologize for a quote intimating islam is violent, go figure. I could go and on pulling stories from across the globe where angry muslims celebrated their high holy day with death and violence. We have a long way to go and as the holiday wears on we'll hear more about maryrdom operations from the religion of peace. Legend has it, if you're a martyr (kill yourself) during ramadan, you'll receive an extra virgin or two.

All kidding aside, the terror alert level isn't elevated during Yom Kippur, Easter or Christmas. But don't make a point of bringing this up to the muslim community, they might get violent in an effort to dispel your comment. Happy ramadan!

Ahmadinejad defends suicide bombing

This statement should put to rest the any questions regarding their intentions if Iran is allowed to acquire nuclear weapons. The Iranian "nutter in chief" was asked by an NBC reporter how he would feel if his child became a suicide bomber. The "matter of fact" response is chilling. In classic Ahmadinejad fashion, the question was bounced back to the journalist,

"What would you like your son to do?" Ahmadinejad said. "Would you like him to defend America? I think you would like that. "t's the same with our people. If you don't have arms, what would you do? It's not a bad thing. The war was imposed on the Middle East, "Ahmadinejad said. Iran is sandwiched between Afghanistan and Iraq, where the United States has hundreds of thousands of troops. Hundreds of thousands of troops surround us under the pretext of democracy,"

We're waging war with a death cult civilization. Iran is hell bent on obtaining weapons of mass destruction. The clerics who speak though Ahmadinejad intend to usher in the mahdi (12th imam) and eliminate Israel. They've been telling us of their objectives for years, and this revelation by the "nutter in chief" supporting martyrdom endeavors must be taken seriously. Civilized nations need to collectively condemn their evil intentions and the west has a moral obligation to sustain military efforts in the middle east to crush this culture of death also know as islam!

Chavez calls President Bush the "Devil"

Once again the UN has proven their impotence. In a speech to the United Nations General Assembly, Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez called President Bush the devil. This "moral giant" also urged the member governments to fight U.S. domination. World leaders and diplomats applauded his remarks and often burst into laughter as the dictator suggested Americans read Noam Chomsky's "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance."

The united nations has become irrelevant. Their inability to enforce security resolutions aside, how do you allow one member nation to call for the elimination of another? Allowing Chavez to spew anti-American venom on U.S. soil just proves their insignificance. Turtle Bay has become a soap box for terrorists and dictators to legitimize conspiracy theories, lending moral equivalence to their evil deeds.

CAIR looks to muslim brotherhood & hamas as islamic leaders!

US Newswire is a "pay for play" media service. In other words, you pay them to submit your "news" item to various media outlets. There's no guarantee it'll get picked up. This service is utilized by CAIR when they issue "For Immediate Release" emails like the Pope denouncing "whine-o-gram" I received Friday.

I did some digging last night and read the entire CAIR release and compared the two. They are in fact identical. It was when I clicked to the Washington Post link, located on both the email and the US Newswire releases, that I realized CAIR tried to mislead me and the public. The prompt says: SEE: Muslim Leaders Blast Pope's Comments (Washington Post), now that would lead one to believe CAIR was among the muslim leaders mentioned and or quoted in the article. Right, well that's what I thought. I reread the WaPo news piece again and nowhere is CAIR or any American muslim quoted. The muslims "leaders" who did the blasting included members of the muslim brotherhood, a representative of hamas and the Iraqi radical "boy" cleric Moqtada al-Sadr. Are these muslim leaders directing CAIR? Does CAIR look to these terrorist for guidance? Is the claim made by Andrew Whitehead calling CAIR a terrorist front operation true? If they refer to these islamic terrorists as leaders then I think CAIR has some explaining to do!

When is islam going to live up to their "religion of peace" claim?

I fall asleep with the radio tuned to our local talk radio station, 1420 WHK. They feature 4 of SRN's best talk hosts all week and overnight replay The Savage Nation. Michael Savage is NOT one of my favorite hosts, he can be a little extreme and has a tendency to go over board.

After a day of talk hosts and Fox News airing the islamic backlash to comments made by the Pope, I posted some calming pictures of God's Promise, made reference to the all to common reaction by the "religion of peace" and went to bed. Enter the savage nation. Michael was commenting (ranting) on the "ummah" and what's become an all to common response to "insulting" islam. Time and again following Friday prayers, muslims take to the streets insisting islam is the religion of peace. All the while effigys burn and chants of "death to...." whomever offended the peaceful muslims.

I have to say, Michael was spot on with his commentary last night, reminding us what happens when you offend islam. Just ask Theo Van Gogh what happens when you offend islam.

As the day wore on, it seemed I was made to believe this was a justified reaction. Talking heads from Jessie Jackson to CAIR came out and defended the actions of these crazed death cult followers. Calling for dialog and a greater understanding of the muslim world. CAIR sent an immediate response to the comments made by the Pontiff, insisting islam is peaceful. The email was chock-full of examples from the koran. Verses condemning forced conversion and a few lines stating the "true" meaning of jihad. The examples were selected and intentional, one must read the entire verse to understand what the prophet really meant, the devil's in the details. More of the same dialog of the demented.

Fire bombing churches and embassies, death threats to cartoonist and torching a makeshift likeness of world leaders has become "accepted" behavior by angry muslims. When Rosie O'Donnell "offended" Christians we didn't see death threats tossed her way or burning effigys in St. Peters Square. It's not a matter of respect, it's about living in a civilized world. American's have the freedom to offend and to be offensive. We also understand our actions and offensive behavior carry consequences. Is the western world going to hold the muslim world to the same standard and demand the ummah move into the 21st century. The ummah must put an end to the victim mentality and hold clerics accountable for the actions of their flock. They can't be any more clear when the chants of death are directed toward the western infidels, when are civilized nations going to wake up. Do we need another 9/11, Madrid train and London tube bombing? Their intentions are clear, and they need to be killed before they murder us!

God's Promise

Just after a thunderstorm passed through NEO, I was able to snap some pictures of God's Promise. As muslims emerge from Friday "prayers", thousands go forward to affirm statements made by the Pontiff. His quoting of a 14th century Byzantine Christian Emperor, "Show me just what muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached," provoked the action angry muslims are famous for.....So instead of posting pictures of his burning effigy, I thought these rainbows make for a positive beginning into the weekend. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Christopher Lewis!

Happy 21st Birthday Christopher!21 years ago today, God blessed me with a beautiful, healthy 9 pound 2 ounce baby boy. My life was forever changed with this gift, this tiny life entrusted to me by our Lord. Today, when he wakes, I'll see a wonderful young man who loves everything Batman, James Bond, music, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and his 2005 Legend Lime Green Mustang (Christopher's LPN graduation gift). Needless to say, he makes me extremely proud. This afternoon, before he leaves for the hospital, his dad and I will sing Happy Birthday and the 3 of us will enjoy a piece "Joker" ice cream cake. For most folks, today is just another day, I however will give thanks for the gift I received 21 years ago.
Happy Birthday "Hoffie", I love you more than you'll ever know!

Post 9/11 muslim apology

I found this inspiring "nugget" printed in the NY Post. Here's the "apology" in full if you don't care to go to the Post.

September 12, 2006 — WELL, here it is, five years late, but here just the same: an apology from an Arab-American for 9/11. No, I didn’t help organize the killers or contribute in any way to their terrible cause. However, I was one of millions of Arab-Americans who did the unspeakable on 9/11: nothing.
The only time I raised my voice in protest against these men who killed thousands of innocents in the name of Allah was behind closed doors, among the safety of friends and family. I did at one point write a very vitriolic essay condemning their actions, but fear of becoming another Salman Rushdie kept me from ever trying to publish it.
Well, I’m sick of saying the truth only in private - that Arabs around the world, including Arab-Americans like myself, need to start holding our own culture accountable for the insane, violent actions that our extremists have perpetrated on the world at large.
Yes, our extremists and our culture.
Every single 9/11 hijacker was Arab and a Muslim. The apologists (including President Bush) tried to reassure us that 9/11 had nothing to do with Islam, but was a twisting of a great and noble religion. With all due respect, read the Koran, Mr. President. There’s enough there for someone of extreme tendencies to find their way to a global jihad.
