232 Sudanese slaves liberated from jihadi overlords

From Jihad Watch:

As the list below shows, the slaves were variously beat, terrorized, blinded, raped, and so forth. But there is one thing they all experienced: they were all forced to convert to Islam (i.e., "Islamized"), revealing their tormentors' priorities.

"232 Sudanese Slaves Liberated," from Christian Solidarity International, May 29:

CSI Urges President Obama to Help Stamp out Slavery in Sudan

WASHINGTON, May 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Christian Solidarity International (CSI) issued a report on the liberation of 232 Sudanese earlier this month. The slaves - Christian and traditionalist members of the Dinka tribe - were liberated, with CSI's support, from Arab masters in Darfur and neighboring Kordofan. The released captives were then repatriated to their homeland in Southern Sudan by Arab retrievers working in association with local Arab-Dinka Peace Committees. The enslavement of these Black non-Muslim Sudanese took place during jihad raids undertaken by Arab militias backed by Sudan's Islamist government during the late North-South civil war (1983-2005).

Interviews with all 232 slaves conducted by CSI representatives reveal a clear pattern of physical and psychological abuse. The liberated slaves reported having been subjected to beatings, death threats, rape, female genital mutilation,forced conversion to Islam, racial and religious insults and work without pay. Some slaves reported witnessing the execution of fellow captives.

Among the interviewed slaves were:

Achan Mawien Guat - pregnant 17 year-old: Enslaved, Raped, Circumcised, andIslamized.

Peter Akot Dut Hol - 19 year-old Christian: Enslaved, Islamized, Father Murdered, Mutilated and Terrorized.

Majok Kon Maliith - 17 year-old: Enslaved, Islamized, Terrorized, Beaten, and Blinded in one Eye.

Mary Atak Geng Baak - 18 year-old Christian: Enslaved, Islamized, Sexually Abused, Terrorized, and Economically Exploited.[...]

Slavery persists in Sudan, despite the signing in January 2005 of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between the Islamist Government of Sudan (GOS) and the secular, Southern-based Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLM). The Agreement failed to include a mechanism for overseeing the liberation of slaves and their safe repatriation...

Tea Party Protester Visited by FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force

If this man's account of his story is accurate, then this is an example of the creeping fascistic tendencies of those we have given the responsibility of running our affairs in the government. This Senator Whitehouse had better soon realize he works for us. We do not bow to him.

Oh, but that a citizen could report him to the FBI for voting to fleece our paychecks and spend money that is not his.

Well, we'll just have to make sure the man is removed from office instead.

From the American Daily Review:

By Colonel Harry Riley (U.S. Army Ret.)

Welcome to the rising number of us that are now domestic terrorist because of our love for America, support the Constitution, Republic principles, and honor our Founding Fathers collectivewisdom.

Socialism/fascism leading to communism is very much evident in political decisions in Washington, D.C.

We have a responsibility to voice our opposition to government action, no matter which way our philosophy lands, we must not allow the Senator Sheldon Whitehouse crowd or any other politican tell us what we can think, say, write as long as America is governed by the US Consitution.

The arrogance of a “representative” of the people reporting a citizen voicing an opinion is a further reflection of a politician with an authoritarian attitude White House needs to be retired, better yet tarred and feathered.

It also calls for a letter to the editor explaining the mindless actions of a politician that should be honoring his constituents rather than trying to use the heavy hand of government to stem debate, this action is just outrageous.God bless you for standing firm.

Should anyone need evidence of an over reaching government, they only have need to read this account of what has happened to one individual Tea Party Protestor “Steve from Atlanta.”

“Beginning in earnest in September of 2008 I began a campaign of letter writing to elected United States Representatives, Senators, and the White House under both President Bush and now President Obama.

The tone of my correspondence has been that of a citizen who is fed up with the government for spending money we do not have, at a time when we are experiencing economic deflation, and taking control of private business, where I believe it is in violation of the constitutional rights of business owners, shareholders, and frankly every citizen of this country.

Ask the Bank of America shareholders today if their rights were violated when the government forced BAC’s CEO to purchase Merrill Lynch for $15 billion more than its’ value. I wasn’t aware of the facts at that time, but I knew government had no right to enter into the making of business decisions for shareholders, with or without full disclosure.

I have further stated my intent to exercise any and all of my rights as a citizen to do everything in my power to see that any elected official who refuses to govern according to the constitution, and who refuses to act in an official capacity according to the wishes, beliefs, and demands of the public be removed from public office. I have also voiced my opinion that career politicians are the antithesis of the views of the framers, and called for single term limits of any elected office. In no way did I ever suggest anything other than our constitutional rights as citizens to control our government’s actions.

Yesterday, [May 25] as a result of one of my letters, I was paid a visit by the Joint Terrorism Task Force of the FBI. One Senator, Sheldon Whitehouse, reported to the FBI that he felt I was endangering the government and should be investigated as a suspected terrorist.

This after every single one my letters was sent through the official website of the government, and contained all of my personally identifying information and was specifically stated as advising each U.S. Senator that I was offering political opinion about pending legislation, or governmental policy.

Apparently, as this left leaning congress assaults our rights on a daily basis, they are now resorting to reporting dissenters to their policies to the FBI, under the guise of terrorist threats. Since when did expressing a p0litical opinion, or disagreeing with the passage of Socialist bills in the legislature become terrorist in nature? I have specifically objected vehemently to the TARP, TALC, Economic Recovery
Act, Omnibus Spending Bill, President Obama’s 3.6 trillion dollar budget, cap and trade, and every other anti capitalist bill put forth in the 111th Congress.

The FBI agent was very polite and respectful. He explained why I had been targeted and by whom, Senator Whitehouse, and assured me that this would be the end of it. I explained to him in answer to his questions what and why I had written.

He agreed that I have the constitutional right to express my dissatisfaction with government policy. The last thing he said to me was to advise that I keep expressing my opinions.

At first I wasn’t too bothered, but really amused that a Senator would do such a thing. I immediately starting penning a new letter to the Honorable Senator, then left it to cool before pressing the submit button. Over the course of the next few hours, the realization of the intent of the Senator’s action, and the resulting wariness on my part to write anymore letters came rising up as rage that an elected
representative in the United States of America would even dare do such a thing. Is this where we are headed?

Is this the Socialistic Fascism the current majority is pushing on the American people to be followed by not only political Fascism, but tyranny at the hands of our Federal law enforcement agencies at the direction of political hacks? Is this the last of it, or am I now identified somewhere as a
terrorist threat to be watched?

By the way, my definition of Fascism is when the government controls private business, in very general terms. The connotation by some is much more cynical and perhaps it really should be. I share this here because many of you are writing the same letters. If you have also been targeted, or if you are in the future, we all have the need to know. Your responses are welcome.”

I’m proud to stand with Steve!

Colonel Harry Riley (U.S. Army Ret.)

Extreme Muslims Clash With Moderate Muslims In Luton?

Apparently so:

The Muslim community turned on extremists in their midst yesterday, telling them they were 'sick and tired' of their behaviour.

The angry confrontation came in Luton, where anti-Islamist protesters brandished England flags last Sunday, before clashing with police.

The latest violence erupted as arguments raged between fellow Muslims shortly after Friday morning prayers in the Bury Park area of the town.

Muslim groups clash in Luton

Heated: The two groups clash after members of the Luton Muslim community decided to move a group of extremists on, with officers struggling to hold them back

Passing traffic ground to a halt as the large group of moderates confronted about a dozen extremists. 

As the radical Muslims began to set up their stall, they were surrounded by a crowd shouting 'we don't want you here' and 'move on, move on'.

Angry words were exchanged and scuffles broke out between members of both groups, with the extremists shouting 'Shame on you' and 'Get back to your synagogue'.

The moderates chanted 'Out, Out, Out', and after an uneasy stand-off, police officers were able to persuade the extremist group to leave the area.

Luton muslim groups clash

Anger: A member of one of the groups gestures to the camera during the confrontation

One police officer and two community support officers struggled to hold them apart until more officers arrived.

Buses and cars were unable to move as the crowd spilled into the road.

Farasat Latif, of the Islamic Centre in Luton, which was firebombed after the protest against the soldiers, said moderate members of his community took action because police had failed to move the group on.

During the protest against the homecoming parade of the Royal Anglian regiment in March, the extremists had shouted 'baby killers' and 'butchers of Basra' as well as brandishing placards against the Iraq war.

He said the extremists, who follow the militant group led by Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammed, had fuelled feelings against the Muslim community which led to a march last Sunday in Luton which was disrupted by white, right-wing extremists.

Luton muslim groups clash

Standstill: The clashes between the two groups caused traffic to stop through the Bury Park area of Luton

Mr Latif said: 'We have been fighting these Muslim extremists for you. They represent nobody but themselves.

'The community decided to move them on because the police won't. We have asked them, but they did nothing.

'I don't know if they will be back. We have been the victims twice over - from the stupidity of Muslim extremists who metaphorically pour petrol and fan the flames of the right-wing extremists.

'This was a peaceful demonstration and we hope they get the message that the law-abiding community is sick and tired of them.'

No one was arrested during the incident.

A spokeswoman for Bedfordshire Police said: 'We attended the incident, calmed people down and moved them on. No one was arrested and there were no injuries.'

Flashback: The extremist group is said to be behind a protest against the homecoming parade of the Royal Anglian regiment in the town in March

UPDATE: Up Pompeii calls this a "clash of Muslim strategies". They may be right.

The Obama Era And The Crushing Of Dissent

From Larwyn's Links:

Now Prohibited: calling your congressman to bitch about the spendulus

Well, this should tamp down anyone with a bad attitude that might have the nerve to call their congressman or senator about some aspect of the spendulus.

[previously]...barred registered lobbyists from having oral communications with government officials about specific Recovery Act projects or applications and instead required those communications to be in writing; and also required those written communications to be posted on the Internet. ...
...we will expand the restriction on oral communications to cover all persons, not just federally registered lobbyists. For the first time, we will reach contacts not only by registered lobbyists but also by unregistered ones, as well as anyone else exerting influence on the process. We concluded this was necessary under the unique circumstances of the stimulus program...

From WH WEBSITE.....

Update on Recovery Act Lobbying Rules: New Limits on Special Interest Influence

Another update from Norm Eisen, special counsel to the president for ethics and government reform, in the spirit of transparency as always:

I am writing with an update on the President’s March 20, 2009 Memorandum on Ensuring Responsible Spending of Recovery Act Funds. Section 3 of the Memorandum required all oral communications between federally registered lobbyists and government officials concerning Recovery Act policy to be disclosed on the Internet; barred registered lobbyists from having oral communications with government officials about specific Recovery Act projects or applications and instead required those communications to be in writing; and also required those written communications to be posted on the Internet.  That Memorandum instructed the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to review the initial 60 days of implementation of the stimulus lobbying restrictions, to evaluate the data, and to recommend modifications.  

Following OMB’s review, the Administration has decided to make a number of changes to the rules that we think make them even tougher on special interests and more focused on merits-based decision making. 

First, we will expand the restriction on oral communications to cover all persons, not just federally registered lobbyists.  For the first time, we will reach contacts not only by registered lobbyists but also by unregistered ones, as well as anyone else exerting influence on the process.  We concluded this was necessary under the unique circumstances of the stimulus program.

Second, we will focus the restriction on oral communications to target the scenario where concerns about merit-based decision-making are greatest –after competitive grant applications are submitted and before awards are made.  Once such applications are on file, the competition should be strictly on the merits.  To that end, comments (unless initiated by an agency official) must be in writing and will be posted on the Internet for every American to see.

Third, we will continue to require immediate internet disclosure of all other communications with registered lobbyists.  If registered lobbyists have conversations or meetings before an application is filed, a form must be completed and posted to each agency’s website documenting the contact. 

OMB will be consulting with agencies, outside experts and others about these principles and will publish detailed guidance, but we wanted to update interested parties on the outcome of the initial review.  We consulted very broadly both within and outside of government (including as reflected in previous posts on the White House blog) and we are grateful to all those who participated in the process. 

But please IGNORE THAT and don't say NASTY THINGS like those MEAN RUDE CONSERVATIVES.  Doug Ross puts up a sample of MEANNESS & NASTINESS .....

"As close to a dictatorship as this country has ever seen" 

Mark Levin made that statement on Thursday evening. Was he overstating things? Consider the following steps taken by the Obama administration and then judge for yourself:

Silencing Dissent: The SEIU, Organizing for America and ACORN have coordinated a campaign that pillories broadcast networks who are considering airing ads that oppose Obama's socialized medicine agenda. Consider this message, painting any dissent against single-payer, socialized medicine as "swiftboating".

As Sweetness & Light observes, "just in case there was ever any doubt as to who is calling the tune here, these groups are [all] using the exact language that was dictated to them by the Obama administration."

The group "Organizing for America" is Obama's personal political organization, completely outside the confines of the Democrat Party. And it uses that same creepy logo -- the Obama evil eye -- that reminds me of something out of the 1930s. Has any other President in history had his own cadre of brownshirts -- yes, I said brownshirts! -- that do his bidding outside the control of his political party? Or his own special symbol?

Encouraging Voter Intimidation: Remember the case where several "New Black Panthers" intimidated Caucasian, Hispanic and Asian voters at a polling place in Philadelphia? They flaunted billy clubs at at the polls until the police showed up. One of the defendants, Jerry Jackson, is an elected member of the local Democratic Committee and, at the time of the incident, was a "credentialed poll watcher for Barack Obama and the Democratic Party".

Guess what? Attorney General Eric Holder's Department of Justice (i.e., the Obama administration) is attempting to kill a civil complaint related to the incident. A prominent 1960s civil rights activitist called the case "the most blatant form of voter intimidation" he'd ever seen, including the Mississippi voting rights crisis. A former commissioner at the Federal Election Commission stated, "In my experience, I have never heard of the department refusing to take a default judgment." 

When it comes to voter intimidation, the Obama administration chooses to look away. This invites further incidents of voter intimidation by pro-Obama supporters in future elections. 

Encouraging and Supporting Voter Registration Fraud: do I really need to describe all of the skulduggery with which ACORN is associated? Despite its claims of non-partisanship, it is inarguably partisan. The organization is under investigation in 15 states with dozens of indictments and allegations of hundreds of thousands of fraudulent voter registrations.

Despite all of the legal issues swirling around the organization, ACORN affiliates in just 11 states are reported to have received more than $31 million in taxpayer funding. And ACORN has plenty of affiliates. Hundreds, in fact. ACORN founder Wade Rathke also founded the huge public sector union, the SEIU (Service Employees International Union), which also happens to funnel funds to ACORN. Other ACORN affiliates, like the American Institute for Social Justice, also send millions directly to its parent. Worse, ACORN is competing for $8 billion in Stimulus funding and is likely to get a good percentage of it, given the predilections of the Obama administration.

By supporting a legally troubled group with taxpayer dollars, the administration is tacitly encouraging vote fraud and undermining the rule of law.

Suppressing Criticism: the massive "Stimulus" package and deficit spending bills passed by Democrats and the Obama administration appears to be nothing more than a gargantuan boondoggle. Experts like theCongressional Budget Office and the Comptroller General have criticized the approach, calling it "unsustainable".

A new White House policy, which dictates permissible lobbying on the Stimulus package, directly attacks the First Amendment by shielding the spending plan from criticism. The Washington Examiner reports on language proferred by the White House itself

...we will expand the restriction on oral communications to cover all persons, not just federally registered lobbyists. For the first time, we will reach contacts not only by registered lobbyists but also by unregistered ones, as well as anyone else exerting influence on the process. We concluded this was necessary under the unique circumstances of the stimulus program.

In other words, the first rule of Stimulus Package is: you do not talk about Stimulus Package.

Abrogating the Rule of Law: Much has been written about the bizarre activities of the federal government related to Chrysler's bankruptcy. Giving junior creditors (i.e., the UAW) precedence over senior creditors and "[s]elling Chrysler to a shell corporation for the purpose of divesting lenders of their rights [are] a stunning abuse of U.S. bankruptcy laws."

Furthermore, it guarantees that Chrysler and GM, because they've been spared from a true bankruptcy reorganization, will remain ineffective and uncompetitive for they will not have instituted the deep reforms required in the current situation.

And it deeply wounds unions: what investor will deal with any unionized company, knowing that their rights as a secured creditor could be shredded at the whim of an administration with its own social and political agenda?

As Andrew M. Grossman testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee "The bankruptcies of Chrysler and soon General Motors are a microcosm of the lawlessness that threatens our freedom and our prosperity."

And coming soon: We will soon see talk radio silenced, which is truly nothing less than a direct assault on the First Amendment. It will be presented under the innocent-sounding principles of "localism" and "diversity". Note that newspapers, which have had little in the way of localism or diversity over the years (e.g., Associated Press wire stories that dominate content) are under no such scrutiny.

Is this, then, as Levin claims, "as close to a dictatorship as this country has ever seen"?

We're only four months in.

I will let the readers consider the facts and judge for themselves.

The Astute Bloggers, a site I contribute to, is one of the most important reads in the world of news and opinion, not because I write for it, but because Reliapundit is one of the most prescient writers in America.

I do not believe that is hyperbole. 

I don't keep track of these things, but I do see Reliapundit predicting future events with great accuracy, and noticing things no one else notices well before the mainstream media gets to it. He does this at least once a week, often more than that.

Here's yet another example. I encourage you to not only read the post itself, but the link within the post, which will show you his post on Obama's body language in the presence of Abbas vs. Obama's body language in the presence of Netanyahu.

From Reliapundit, the Astute Blogger:

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates warned North Korea on Saturday that the United States would not accept it as a nuclear weapons state and would consider any transfer of nuclear material to other countries or terrorist groups a “grave threat” to the United States and its allies.

“We will not stand idly by as North Korea builds the capability to wreak destruction on any target in the region — or on us,” ... North Korea, Mr. Gates said, had a choice: “To continue as a destitute, international pariah, or chart a new course.”

... “President Obama has offered an open hand to tyrannies that unclench their fists,” Mr. Gates said. “He is hopeful, but he is not naïve. Likewise, the United States and our allies are open to dialogue, but we will not bend to pressure or provocation.”

... Military officials traveling with Mr. Gates said the tough talk was aimed at increasing worldwide pressure on North Korea as well as reassuring allies in the region, particularly Japan and South Korea, that the United States was committed to their defense should North Korea make good on talk of war this week. On Wednesday, North Korea threatened military strikes against the South.

The Cuda Challenges Obama & Gates

Via ADN.com or Pravda North, as I like to call it:

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is calling for President Obama to take a firm stance against North Korea and defend the states and territories of the United States and allies on the Korean peninsula.

North Korea fired a short-range missile on Friday — the sixth this week. Military experts believe a long-range missile could reach Alaska, where part of the nation's missile defense system is located.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates will tour the missile defense site at Fort Greely, near Fairbanks, on Monday.

The Defense Department is not recommending moving forward with a planned expansion of the missile defense system at Fort Greely in its latest budget.

“The United Nations sanctions have failed to stop North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons, and the Obama Administration cannot afford to be playing catch-up to an irrational dictator like Kim Jong-Il,” Palin said in a written statement. “Missile Defense Agency funding must be fully restored in the federal budget to guarantee our protective measures remain the best in the world. Fort Greely plays a crucial role in the nation’s security.”

Governor Urges President to Stand Firm Against North Korea Rogue nation’s capability to attack Alaska and Hawaii cannot be ignored:

May 29, 2009, Anchorage, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin called on President Barack Obama to take a firm stand against North Korea and defend the states and territories of the United States of America and American allies on the Korean peninsula.

This morning, North Korea launched its sixth short-range missile since Monday’s nuclear test. North Korea has also stated that it is no longer bound by the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War. Further, President Obama has proposed a $1.4 billion reduction of the Missile Defense Agency’s budget.

“The United Nations sanctions have failed to stop North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons, and the Obama Administration cannot afford to be playing catch-up to an irrational dictator like Kim Jong-Il,” said Governor Palin. “Missile Defense Agency funding must be fully restored in the federal budget to guarantee our protective measures remain the best in the world. Fort Greely plays a crucial role in the nation’s security.”

Alaska is home to the largest ground-based mid-course defense missile shield in North America. Because of its geographical position and proximity to potential targets, Alaska plays a critical role in national security and in the defense of American allies.

Ground missile defense is the cornerstone of the Missile Defense Agency’s multi-layered architecture. It is designed to detect, track, discriminate, intercept and destroy long- and intermediate-range ballistic missiles during the mid-course phase of flight. The weapons system consists of land-, sea- and space-based sensors, command and control operations, and silo-based interceptors that are located at Vandenberg AFB, California and Fort Greely.

Dealergate Update

From Gateway Pundit:

Shock. Dem Dealers Support Chrysler Closing Plans

Click to Enlarge
Published on 5/28/2009 in the Riverside Press

The above ad appeared in several national newspapers this week including the The Wilmington News Journal on page A18, Thursday, May 28, 2009, andThe Riverside Press.
The ad is in support of the Chrysler National Dealer Council.
Exit82 reported:

The ad is a full page and reads like a BS account of why the elimination of dealers was necessary, good for Chrysler, so sorry it had to happen to some of our friends, blah, blah, blah.

I believe this ad was part of a nationwide ad buy in many papers because it is written to a antional audience.

My BS meter pinged immediately.

The following people/dealers were listed at the bottom of the ad, supposedly supporting it. We should study the list to see the if they were retained and what party they donated to:

Mickey Anderson
Baxter Chrysler Jeep Dodge
Omaha, NE

Jim Arrigo
Arrigo Dodge Chrysler Jeep
West Palm Beach, FL

Sid DeBoer
Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge, Inc.(Bingo—a Lithia member)
Medford, OR

Chuck Eddy
Bob & Chuck Eddy C-D-J
Austintown, OH

Hayden Elder
Elder Chrysler Dodge Jeep
Athens, TX

Charlie Foulke
Cherry Hill Dodge
Cherry Hill, NJ

Bill Golling
Golling Chrysler Jeep, Inc.
Bloomfield Hills, MI

Carlos Hidalgo
Folsom Lake Dodge
Folsom, CA

Mike Lowry
Allen Samuels Dodge
North Richland Hills, TX

Bill McSkimming
River Front Chrysler Jeep
North Aurora, IL

Jon Myers
Naples Dodge and Chrysler
Naples, FL

Eric Nielsen
Franklin Sussex Auto Mall
Sussex, NJ

Andy Palmen
Palmen Motors, Inc.
Kenosha, WI

Gary Panteck
Brunswick Auto Mart, Inc.
Brunswick, OH

John Schenden
Pro Chrysler Jeep
Thornton, CO

Bill Shepherd
Greenbrier Chrysler Jeep
Chesapeake, VA

Joel Sporn
Westbury C-J
Westbury, NY

The ad also announced a website called ChryslerDealerSupport.
Smith6450 discovered this:

Here’s what I found on the dealers on the list:

1. Mickey Anderson is a GOP donor.
2. Carlos Hidalgo and McSkimming gave no money to candidates, but their local Dodge competitors will be closed down. They will each be the only chrysler dealers in their areas.
3. John Myers gave no money to candidates, but their local Jeep competitor will close. Myers will be the only local Chrysler dealer in the area.

Since 2007, the following dealers gave money to candidates:

1. Jim Arrigo gave $3,300 to Ron Klein (D)
2. Chuck Eddy gave $500 to John Boccieri (D)
3. Charles Foulke gave $6,900 to Robert Andrews (D) and $6,300 to various Democrats from 1994-2000
4. Andrew Palmer gave $750 to Russ Feingold (D) and $500 to Paul Ryan (R)
5. John Schenden gave $900 to Joan Fitz-Gerald (D)
So the democratic dealers who were left untouched and those dealers who lost local competitors support the Chrysler closings.
What a shock!

We have been having an ongoing discussion here, over the past few days, of the amazement we feel over how fast America is sliding into "Marxism", as Pravda called it.

A few of us are not surprised at all. Epaminondas and I, while having been suspicious of Obama since the beginning, are indeed surprised? astonished? yes, amazed by what is happening. 

Obama takes over 72% of GM, 

Obama takes over Chryslers and conspires in the closure of five-star rated, profitable car dealerships which belong to people who donated money to his political opponents,

Obama's Attorney General drops charges of Voter Intimidation against Black Panthers who wielded "night-sticks" in front of polling stations, and were heard to say, "We're going to make sure a black man wins this election", (the Black Panthers are considered a hate group by the SPLC and the ADL, but the Obama Administration seems to be ok with them, indeed, Obama had a Black Panthers page on his campaign website),

Obama goes on an apology tour of the world, apologizing to countries such as Iran, who have sworn the destruction of our nation (which they refer to as "the Great Satan"),

Obama ignores the problem of North Korean nuclear weapons, having said that his administration is "relatively relaxed", and "there is not a sense of crisis",

etc. etc. etc.

It's as if Obama is consciously attempting to wreck America's hegemony, both foreign and domestic. But, that's hard to believe, isn't it?

But, one thing we all should remember is this Administration has shown clear tendencies towards behavior which is outside the American tradition from the very beginning.

Let us never forget this little bit of overt fascism from Rahm Emanuel.

UK school exercise: Schoolchildren Forced To Pray To Allah

In the interest of further explication of Jewel's excellent post here, I bring you this article from Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch:

A few years ago I was an expert witness in a case against the Byron Union School District in California, where public school students had been made to memorize and recite prayers and portions of the Qur'an, and to make affirmations of Islamic faith in the course of answering test questions -- questions would be worded "True or False: Muhammad is the messenger of Allah," instead of "True or false: Muslims believe that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah." But the parents who brought the suit lost the case; the court ruled that it was all just role play, a recognized pedagogical tool, and consequently was nothing to be concerned about.

The same controversy appears to be playing out in this case: was the teaching mandating prayer to Allah, or just leading students in a role-playing game? Officials here again say it was the latter, but some parents aren't so sure. And if it was just role play, why was the teacher fired?

"Teacher sacked after 'making pupils kneel and pray to Allah' during RE lesson," from the Daily Mail, May 29 (thanks to all who sent this in):

A teacher has been sacked after parents claimed that their children were forced to pray to Allah during a religious education lesson.

Alison Phillips was accused of giving two pupils detention after they refused to kneel down and 'pray to Allah' during the class.

However, an investigation by the school concluded that there was no truth in the allegation.

Parents were outraged after stories emerged that the two boys, aged 11, were allegedly punished for not wanting to take part in a practical demonstration of how Allah is worshipped.

They said children should not be forced to take part in the exercise, which included wearing Muslim headgear, was a breach of their human rights.

But governors at Alsager High School, near Stoke-on-Trent, denied Mrs Phillips made pupils pray or that two boys were put into detention for refusing to do so.

The school suspended the teacher last July after receiving complaints and a lengthy disciplinary process was carried out.

A statement released on behalf of the school by Cheshire East Council said: 'It can be confirmed that following a long and rigorous disciplinary process, a member of staff at Alsager School has been dismissed from her post.

'The member of staff was suspended in July 2008 following parental complaints and newspaper reports relating to an RE lesson.

'In reaching this decision, the governing body wish to make very clear that they were completely satisfied that at no point did that member of staff make children pray to Allah or put boys in detention for refusing to do so.

'The RE lesson in question contains an element of role play which complies with acceptable practice.'

At the time of the alleged incident, one parent - Sharon Luinen, said: 'This isn't right, it's taking things too far.

'Being asked to pray to Allah, who isn't who they worship, is wrong and what got me is that came away thinking they were being disrespectful.'

Another parent, Karen Williams, said: 'I am absolutely furious and I don't find it acceptable.

'I haven't got a problem with them teaching my child other religions and a small amount of information doesn't do any harm.

'But not only did they have to pray, the teacher had gone into the class and asked them watch a short film and then said "we are now going out to pray to Allah".'

The grandfather of one of the pupils in the class added: 'It's absolutely disgusting, there's no other way of putting it.'

Parents had claimed that their children were made to bend down on their knees on prayer mats which the teacher had got out of her cupboard.

EU Election: Appointed Pedophiles And The Case Of Child Rapists

The EUSSR is an Authoritarian Transnational Socialist undemocratic power-house, what 'National Socialism' and the 'Communist Internationale' was yesterday Transnational Socialism is today and the EUSSR is similar to the former USSR, the parliament, the Duma, the commission, the Politbureau, not surprisingly it is a nest of corruption and unelected rotten people wielding power and deciding over your life.
The president of the commission, Jose Manuel Barroso was one of the leaders of the underground Maoist MRPP (Reorganising Movement of the Proletariat Party, later PCTP/MRPP-Communist Party of the Portuguese Workers/Revolutionary Movement of the Portuguese Proletariat) - Barroso like many other powerseeking left fascist extremists reinvented themselves into the mainstream, make no mistake, these people are still what they are.
The following illustrates aspects of their morality.

H/T from Hodja

Here we are, a few words about Brussels and how it feels about child abuse. I’ll move onto the elections for the European parliament in a moment, but given the horrors of the Ryan report last week, I thought that you ought to know how seriously the euro-elite treat any suggestion of improper behaviour by adults towards children.

In other words I give you Daniel Cohn Bendit, an MEP for the German Green Party. He is a self-confessed kiddie-fiddler, but pulling down his trouser zip for tiny children hasn’t stopped him becoming one of the most influential members of parliament. Here is his story. Keep in mind this man has more power over the legislation of this country than does any member of the Dail.

Mr Cohn-Bendit is better known as Dany the red of the 1968 Paris Barricades. He is a kind of mid-century leftover leftie who was active in squatting, street fighting and agitation before he re-invented himself as a Green and was elected to the European parliament.


But let me give you another example of how ’seriously’ the euro-elite take the protection of children. You may remember the Marc Dutroux case in Belgium. It could be called the most horrific example of child rape and murder in Europe since the war.

Known as the beast of Belgium, Dutroux is now serving a life sentence for a series of child kidnappings, rapes and murders in 1995-96. He kept some of his victims locked in a dungeon he had built in his basement. Two eight-year-old girls starved to death there after Dutroux was arrested and served a short prison sentence for car theft: his wife didn’t bother to open the dungeon door to feed the girls.

Part of the great mystery and scandal that accompanied the case was the relentless incompetence of the authorities, at that time led by the Justice Minister, Melchior Wathelet. For years, as victims were kidnapped and murdered, police files were full of reports and tip-offs that Dutroux was selling young girls. Yet Dutroux stayed free. In the end Mr Wathelet was forced to resign in disgrace. And his reward for incompetence in the administration of Justice was – to be appointed a judge at the European Court of Justice.


But still back to the elections of the European parliament. And that also takes us back to the arrogance of the euro-elite. Just in case it had slipped past you, the voters of Europe are supposed to be voting to determine the membership of the next European parliament which, under existing European law, that is to say, the Nice Treaty, will have 736 seats. But the euro-elites are manoeuvring to make the voters elect 754 MEPs – that is, to elect an extra 18 politicians to the lushly-paid parliament, even though these politicians will have no seat to fill. The euro-elite want the 18 to have full salary, full tax-free allowance for every day they turn up at the European parliament building, full expenses, business-class travel allowances and all the rest. The 18 will be given everything except a job.

The excuse given? That the Lisbon Treaty allows for the creation of an extra 18 seats. So even though the treaty is not yet ratified, the 18 extra politicians ought to be elected and paid as MEPs until the Lisbon Treaty comes into force. Note that arrogance: the treaty has not yet been ratified, and indeed,
may yet come totally off the rails if Gordon Brown is forced to call a general election in the Britain. It may never become law. Yet the euro-elite intends to ignore that fact. They expect the European voters, sheep that we are all assumed to be (and given the docility of the Irish in accepting a second referendum yet again, we have certainly proved to be sheep) to ‘baaaa-baaaa’ their way into the polling booths and deliver 754 MEPs for 736 seats.


I will remind you of just a few examples of how the euro-elite have been for years seizing important new powers which were supposed to theirs only after the treaty was made law by the member states. There is the European Space Policy (which is now developing military use for the European Gallileo GPS system),the European Defence Agency, the borders agency called Frontex, and the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights. Each of these institutions was meant to be created only after the ratification of the European Constitution. When that collapsed, and even before it was re-packaged as the Lisbon Treaty, the euro-elite used legal trickery to start constructing these new institutions anyway.

To repeat: European law is whatever the euro-elite say it is.

They are who we thought they were? Obama, Holder and the New Black Panthers

During the voting in Nov 2008 in Phila, several thugs proudly saying they were from the New Black Panthers, intended to intimidate voters from voting, and did so, saying outside the voting venue, "NOW YOU WILL SEE WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE RULED BY BLACK MEN".

Now having worked in voter registration WAY BACK in KKK land, I can tell you, I never saw anything like that in reverse.

So when this showed up on TV, it had my attention.

This is pretty obvious stuff.
Now add in these two mind blowing factoids FROM THE OLD SCHOOL/NEW SCHOOL left..the ADL and the SPLC...BOTH call the New Black Panthers a hate group. Whoa, right? Ok so now...

WASH TIMES:Justice Department political appointees overruled career lawyers and ended a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense of wielding a nightstick and intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place last Election Day, according to documents and interviews.

The incident - which gained national attention when it was captured on videotape and distributed on YouTube - had prompted the government to sue the men, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring would-be voters with the weapon, racial slurs and military-style uniforms.

Career lawyers pursued the case for months, including obtaining an affidavit from a prominent 1960s civil rights activist who witnessed the confrontation and described it as "the most blatant form of voter intimidation" that he had seen, even during the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.

Here's the REAL RUB ... when charged at the outset, these thugs DID NOT SHOW UP to answer the charges, and had the govt just done NOTHING, they would have been found guilty. Instead Eric Holder went out of his way to DROP THE CHARGES against people who in 1965, and of another hue, would have been doing the frog march with raincoats over theitr heads as they wound their way to a multi year sentence someplace like MARION, IL.

The people running the admin are simply WAY WAY WAY out there.

Apparently they see this as their chance to,,...... what?


A Justice Department spokesman on Thursday confirmed that the agency had dropped the case, dismissing two of the men from the lawsuit with no penalty and winning an order against the third man that simply prohibits him from bringing a weapon to a polling place in future elections.

Can you imagine that outcome in 1966 against some cracker in Dothan Alabama who bought a weapon along with this buds to a voting place to keep black people away?

The people running this govt are NOT LIBERALS. They are against all that liberals worked for in the 60's.


Remember that
