THANK YOU TO ALL PERSONNEL IN THE ARMED FORCES!





It's the Military, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press.

It's the Military, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.

It's the Military, not the politicians that ensures our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

It's the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.


If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for our military PLEASE pray and honor those who are presently serving, have served or died in the line of duty. 

To all of our men and women in service, THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!

Obama a no-show at Arlington Nat'l Cemetery

I thought you all would like to enjoy a very funny video of Obama. Listen to what he says about seeing dead people standing there today, or something to that effect I couldn't stop laughing, what a twit.  The teleprompter was apparently not available.  LOL!!!


Obama plans to be in Chicago on Memorial Day vacationing with family and and blowing off the traditional visit to Arlington National Cemetery. Instead, he decided to give a Memorial Day speech at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Illinois, about 50 miles south of Chicago.


Seriously, folks this should concern consverative and liberals alike at least on this one issue. This is a complete disregard and lack of respect for the courageous men and women who died for freedom as well as those who are presently serving or who have served.

What is most obvious how seems to care more for our enemies than he does for the people of the United States.

Red Cross Gives First Aid Training to Afghanistan's Taliban, Report Says

I am sure like most of you when you heard this became as livid as I.  This is absolutely unacceptable. 

Basically they are aiding our enemies, terrorists, fixing them up and then sending them out to kill or torture our American soldiers.  Please tell me what is wrong with that picture? 

FOX NEWS: The Red Cross in Afghanistan has been teaching the Taliban basic first aid and giving them medical equipment to help fighters wounded in battles with NATO and Afghani forces, The Guardian claimed Tuesday.

More than 70 members of the "armed opposition" received training in April, the Red Cross has said.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it had offered its medical expertise because it was difficult for the wounded to get to hospitals because of battles, land mines and roadblocks.

The organization aims to remain neutral in the conflict. It has also trained Afghan soldiers, policemen and taxi-drivers who act as a make-shift ambulance service in Helmand and Kandahar.

However, a leading figure in Kandahar's local government, who wanted to remain anonymous, expressed outrage over the development.

He told the Guardian: "They [the Taliban] are like animals, and they treat the people they capture worse than animals.

"They kidnapped and killed an American lady and then wouldn't even return her body. These people don't deserve this help."

The Afghan ministries of defense and interior both refused to comment on what they said was a highly controversial issue.

A NATO spokesman said: "NATO has tremendous respect for the humanitarian work carried out by the ICRC and we recognize the need for this work to be carried out impartially."

Injured insurgents are generally accepted at Afghan hospitals but there have been cases of security forces raiding hospitals and arresting staff for treating the Taliban.

Rules punish pro-life clinics

Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) has filed suit against Montgomery County, Maryland, charging discrimination against pro-life pregnancy centers.

The county has enacted new speech rules that specifically target pro-life clinics, requiring them to post signs explaining that women should go elsewhere for care or advice. Under the new policy, failure to do so could result in fines exceeding $20,000 a month. However, the policy does not require pro-abortion facilities to provide similar notification.

"They basically tell [pro-life clinics they] have to post a sign saying that 'we don't have any medical professionals here, and the county recommends you go find a medical professional,'" explains Casey Mattox, legal counsel for ADF. "They don't impose any rule like that, of course, on abortion clinics, and they intentionally crafted this rule to exclude them."

The idea, according to Mattox, violates the Constitution by motivating potential clients for pro-life pregnancy centers to go somewhere else.

"The government can't create special speech rules just because people want to talk about pregnancy, and it absolutely can't target pro-life speakers with these special requirements and fines," he contends. "We're talking thousands of dollars in fines that they would impose upon them. This violates every core principle of free-speech rules."

The ADF legal counsel is asking the court to issue an injunction and halt enforcement of the law, pending a ruling in the case.

This is so like the liberal agenda.  Take away a woman's right to choose.  Abortion clinics have probably lost a lot of money because of these wonderful pro-life clinics that have saved not only the life of the mother but also the precious life of her pre-born child.  Why do they hate these beautiful innocent little babies.  What could possibly drive a person to such insanity to want to brutally murder a child?  I will never seem to grasp why liberals are dead set upon killing children and quite frankly I hope I never do.

Their greed for money and control is positively astounding.

Nun excommunicated for supporting abortion

A Phoenix nun has been excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church over a decision related to abortion.


When St. Joseph's Hospital informed a woman who was 11 weeks pregnant that she had to decide between receiving an abortion and possibly losing her life, she chose the abortion.

Sister Margaret McBride, an administrator at the hospital who also sits on the facilities ethics committee, voted in favor of the abortion and was excommunicated from the church. Bishop Thomas Olmsted, who oversees the Phoenix Diocese, said in a statement, "An unborn child is not a disease. While medical professionals should certainly try to save a pregnant mother's life, the means by which they do it can never be by directly killing her unborn child."

In the excommunication announcement, he added that "if a Catholic formally cooperates in the procurement of an abortion, they are automatically excommunicated by that action."

After the incident, Phoenix television station KTVK spoke with Peggy Sherman, an employee at a Catholic bookstore. "[Abortion] is not what we believe, and I don't think it's ever okay. I think there's always an option," she argued. "As in any rule, the more exceptions that you make, the more problems you have. If it's made for one person, then you make it for six, and these are the rules of the church."

Meanwhile, Sister McBride is still working at St. Joseph's Hospital, but she has been transferred to another department.

I have nothing against nuns this is not what this post is about.  I am rather surprised to hear that a nun actually supported the murder of a pre-born baby.  You cannot compromise one life for another no matter what the circumstances. 

Come to think of it I saw movie today called My Sister's Keeper and basically this little girl was conceived by in vitro fertilization to become a live donor to help keep her oldest sister alive who was diagnosed with leukemia.  She was literally poked and prodded, tortured in my opinion.  She retains an attorney to file a medical emancipation from her mother.  VERY good movie.  However, if you intend to rent this movie, make sure you have plenty of Kleenix.  I highly recommend it.

Culture War Turns to Texas Textbooks

What do liberal lawmakers in California share with their conservative counterparts in Texas? Very little. But this week both are watching the 15 member Texas State Board of Education, which will choose the next generation of history textbooks for most American children.

The left-right culture war will play out over the choice of words, photos, who to honor and what events in American and world history should receive a few lines of text. It may sound innocent, when it is anything but.

Years of research, months of editing, hundreds of hours of debate will be boiled down into a single document – a statement of curricula – that will define the parameters followed by virtually every social studies textbook and test for students from kindergarten to through 8th grade for the next decade.

The battle lines are drawn. On one side are conservatives, who contend academia has been hijacked by liberals. A point supported by studies that show 90 percent of humanities teachers identify themselves as Democrats.

And nowhere is their bias more visible than the one-sided treatment of American history in U.S. textbooks, where words like ‘man’ and ‘mankind’ have been stricken, ‘Founding Fathers’ has been replaced by ‘Framers’ and ‘Founders’ and racial quota’s are applied to the number of photos used in any one book.

“ The liberal extreme groups aren’t interested in balance. They want the standards one-sided, that only fits them,” says Jonathan Saenz of the right leaning Liberty Institute. “The other side’s not interested in the truth. And the reality is, they have this mission of distortion and confusion because they have a political agenda. And they’re not really interested in the content. They’re interested in changing the political demographics.”

In the last two years the board, composed of 10 Republicans and 5 Democrats, has been led by 7 influential social conservatives. By the end of this week, the board will have finished rewriting curriculum standards for three key subject areas – English, science and now, social studies.

Liberals contend the board is out of touch and the block of social conservatives have manipulated the process to reflect teachings out of the mainstream.

“They have politicized the textbook process. And I think that our schoolchildren deserve better than politicizing it,” Terri Burke, Texas ACLU Executive Director . “We really believe this curriculum should be turned over to experts who know something about history, about education, about the learning levels of schoolchildren. We ought to have people who really know it being the ones who write it and vet it and tell us that this is what kiddos oughta learn.”

In California, a key state Senate Committee passed a bill Tuesday designed to prohibit any textbook approved in Texas to be used in the Golden State.“While some Texas politicians may want to set their educational standards back 50 years, California should not be subject to their backward curriculum changes,” said Leland Yee, D-San Francisco. “The alterations and fallacies made by these extremist conservatives are offensive to our communities and inaccurate of our nation’s diverse history. Our kids should be provided an education based on facts and that embraces our multicultural nation.”

The libs just won't quit until they destroy our history, our children and any good thing, including morality that defines this nation as a Christian nation.  They want the destruction of what our founding fathers worked so hard to carry and protect. 

Make no mistake we are in a war.

White House plans to file a law suit against Arizon..however

An immigration reform organization says the Obama administration clearly needs to have all its "ducks in a row" before talking about filing suit against Arizona's new immigration enforcement bill.


Ever since SB 1070 was signed into law by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, the Obama administration has threatened to challenge it with a federal lawsuit. But during a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Congressman Ted Poe (R-Texas) asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder if he had read the statute.


Poe: "Have you read the Arizona law?"

Holder: "I have not had a chance...I've glanced at it, I have not read it...."

Poe: "It's ten pages. It's a lot shorter than the healthcare bill, which was 2,000 pages long. I'll give you my copy of it if you would like to have a copy."

(later) Poe: "You have some concerns about the statute -- and it's hard for me to understand how you would have concerns about something being unconstitutional if you hadn't even read the law."

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, implies the administration had not done its homework before reacting to the Arizona law.

"There is an obligation on the part of the President of the United States and the Attorney General of the United States to actually have all their ducks in a row, to fully understand what is in a piece of legislation, before they even suggest that the people of the United States are going to take on the state of Arizona," says Mehlman.

He adds: "It is clear to anybody who has read SB 1070 that it simply implements federal law that the federal government itself is refusing to implement."

Mehlman believes if the Obama administration had found anything to attack in SB 1070, it would have already filed a suit.

Families of 9/11 victims question NYC mosque

From OneNewsNow:

A messianic Jewish leader doesn't think New York City officials should have granted a permit to two Muslim organizations that want to locate a mosque in a building damaged in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The former Burlington Coat Factory store was damaged by debris when Islamic terrorists flew two jetliners into the World Trade Center on 9/11, but the building could eventually become a 13-story mosque known as "Cordova House." Two Muslim organizations have partnered to open the mosque and cultural center in lower Manhattan, saying the $100-million project will create a venue for "mainstream" Islam and a counterbalance to radicalism.

But some 9/11 victims' families see the project as a painful reminder of the religious extremism that killed their loved ones, and they are angered that the mosque would be built so close to where their relatives died.

"I think that American leadership needs to bow to the wishes of the survivors and the families of 9/11 people who were killed and [to] some of those that survived," Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, suggests.

"I don't care who it is who comes along and wants to establish something if it's offensive to the people who were harmed the most," she contends.

The Olive Tree Ministries founder questions the notion that there is such a thing as "mainstream" or "moderate" Islam, and she believes that many Americans are also skeptical. But despite the concerns, officials say there is nothing they can do to prevent the owners of the building from doing what they want with it.

I am curious as to why the owners of the building would betray our fallen Americans, their families and survivors with such a blatant disrespect?  It has to be greed, plain and simple.

Supreme Court nominee has never been a judge

Barack Obama has nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, saying she will demonstrate independence, integrity, and passion for the law. If confirmed by the Senate, Kagan will become the third woman on the high court. Obama introduced her Monday in the White House's and her called her "my friend." He also stated that she is "one of the nation's foremost legal minds." How is that even plausible when she has absolutely no experience whatsoever as a judge and limited experience as a lawyer.

However, it didn't stop Barry from being elected as president. So I suppose this will bode well for liberals.

Matt Staver spoke openly of his opposition of Kagan for obvious reasons. Her judicial philosophy is one of an activist, that she wants to use foreign law to interpret our own domestic law AND she is in favor of the homosexual agenda, I have also heard that she is openly gay. She is very capable of bringing consensus among a diverse group of people, mostly the above mentioned.

The greatest issues that need to be addressed are her judicial philosphies, her limited or lack of experience practicing law, and of course, biased opinions on the homosexual agenda. These are serious issues that I hope will be taken into consideration that will prevent her confirmation as a Supreme Court judge. But I won't hold my breath on this.

Reportedly Kagan barred the ROTC from the the Harvard Law campus because of military policies on homosexuals. This is not the kind of person we want serving on the highest court of law.

Violent Movie Declares War on Arizona for Immigration Law



I am so ashamed to be of Hispanic descent after viewing this asinine movie trailer. Do Mexicans or Latinos in general really think they are going to get any sympathy or respect from something as ridiculous as this?  The actors are a joke.  And to think I used to like Jessica Alba, Cheech Marin and Michelle Rodriguez.  I believe they just committed career suicide.  And we wonder why Hollywood portrays Hispanics as prostitutes, maids, gardeners, drug dealers, etc.  Gee, I wonder?  After this laughable attempt at protesting ILLEGAL immigration, we are going to be stuck with those stereotypes forever. What a bunch of ignoramuses.

Article from FoxNews:


A violent new film from cult director Robert Rodriguez is declaring war on Arizona with a "special Cinco De Mayo message" in the wake of the state's controversial illegal immigration law.

That message is: "They just f---ed with the wrong Mexican."

"Machete," which features a knife-wielding Mexican assassin out for revenge against double-crossing gringos, won't be in theaters until September, but it is already sparking a political melee over Wednesday's stab at the Grand Canyon State.

In the trailer for the film, the title character is hired to assassinate an anti-immigration U.S. senator played by Robert De Niro. Protesters are seen waving nationalist signs as the senator speaks to a charged-up rally: "We are at war," he booms. "Every time an illegal dances across our border, it is an act of aggression against this sovereign state — an overt act of terrorism."

But before the trailer even begins, the battle-scarred title character stares out from the screen as he tells viewers that what's about to unfold — an immigration-laced slasher grindhouse flick — is about the current border battle in Arizona.

The trailer was released Wednesday, just 24 hours after an envelope filled with a still-undetermined white powder was sent to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, temporarily closing the State Capitol in Phoenix. The powder spilled out when a staffer opened it Tuesday morning, sending Hazmat teams scrambling through the governor's offices. No one was sickened, but state police and the FBI are investigating the incident.

It was just the latest development in a debate that is growing more rancorous by the minute.

Some outspoken critics of illegal immigration took umbrage at the movie trailer and its swipe at Arizona, which is the entry point for one-third of all illegal immigrants in the U.S.

"It's pretty ugly out there," said former Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo, a staunch advocate of tougher immigration laws. "Half the time that's the way all of us are depicted: corrupt, no good, racist."

Tancredo, who served in the House from 1999-2009, said he received "tons of death threats" while in office and frequently wore a bulletproof vest during public speeches. Though the language of the film is nothing new to him, he said he still finds it offensive.

"The racists who made that trailer, they are as racist as anything I have ever seen" from either side of the immigration debate, Tancredo said.

But, he added, "these guys are 'politically correct' racists, so you cannot heap indignities upon them."

In "Machete," the protagonist, played by Danny Trejo, is a former Mexican Federale now looking for work as a day laborer in Texas. He charges $70 a day for yard work, but an oily businessman makes him an offer he can't refuse: $150,000 to take out a senator bent on deporting illegal immigrants.

"As you know, illegal Americans are being forced out of our country at an alarming rate," says the contractor. "For the good of both our people, the senator must die."

The film, which is set to be released Sept. 3, is produced by 20th Century Fox, a production company owned by Fox News' parent company, News Corp.

20th Century Fox said that Rodriguez speaks for himself on political issues. The studio was comfortable with the release of the movie trailer on Cinco De Mayo, but says it has no political stake in the immigration debate.

Representatives for Rodriguez did not return requests for comment. But the head of the production studio handling the international release of the film said "Machete" is a classic grindhouse picture typical of the man who made "Desperado" and "Sin City."

"'Machete' is a Robert Rodriguez movie through and through, wild and wonderful, exactly the kind of exciting and irreverent genre movie that his fans dream about," Ashok Amritraj, CEO of Hyde Park Entertainment, said in an interview with Variety Magazine.

De Niro, playing the senator, fits many familiar tropes about the Southwest: he's a gun-toting, Stetson hat-wearing, flag pin-blazing cowboy from Texas.

He and Trejo are joined by a number of stars: Cheech Marin plays a shotgun-shooting warrior priest, Lindsay Lohan plays the senator's Patty Hearst-like daughter and Don Johnson, as a sheriff, growls that "there's nothing I'd like more than to see more than that Mexican dance the bolero at the end of a rope."

Jessica Alba, a border patrol agent, rallies a group of laborers while crying, "We didn't cross the border — the border crossed us!"

Tancredo, who argued that the film should not be distributed at all, said he wasn't worried the movie would incite any violence, but that its political message was clear.

"I think it is a true reflection of exactly who these people are and what they think about America," he said

Muslims becoming American citizens.

After the serious but thankfully botched Times Square terror attack, people were surprised to hear that Faisal Shahzad's was an American.  He was born in Pakistan married an American woman he gets an automatic US citizenship status.

Sadly, people like Jeffrey Gold berg from the Atlantic magazine gave a typical commentary in his surprise by Shahzad's citizenship and I quote, "I am struck by the fact that he is a naturalized American citizen, not a recent or temporary visitor."  Well, duh!  Wake up!  And smell the deception of the Muslim infiltration into our nation.

Want some examples READ ON BELOW:

Shahzad's path to American citizenship -- he reportedly married an American woman, Huma Mian, in 2008 after spending a decade in the country on foreign student and employment visas -- is a tried-and-true terror formula. Jihadists have been gaming the sham marriage racket with impunity for years. And immigration benefit fraud has provided invaluable cover and aid for U.S.-based Islamic plotters, including many other operatives planning attacks on New York City. As I've reported previously:

- El Sayyid A. Nosair wed Karen Ann Mills Sweeney to avoid deportation for overstaying his visa. He acquired U.S. citizenship, allowing him to remain in the country, and was later convicted for conspiracy in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that claimed six lives.

- Ali Mohamed became an American citizen after marrying a woman he met on a plane trip from Egypt to New York. Recently divorced, Linda Lee Sanchez wed Mohamed in Reno, Nev., after a six-week "courtship." Mohamed became a top aide to Osama bin Laden and was later convicted for his role in the 1998 United States embassy bombings in Africa that killed 12 Americans and more than 200 others.

- Embassy bombing plotter Khalid Abu al Dahab obtained citizenship after marrying three different American women.

- Embassy bombing plotter Wadih el Hage, Osama bin Laden's personal secretary, married April Ray in 1985 and became a naturalized citizen in 1989. Ray knew of her husband's employment with bin Laden, but like many of these women in bogus marriages, she pleaded ignorance about the nature of her husband's work. El Hage, she says, was a sweet man, and bin Laden "was a great boss."

- Lebanon-born Chawki Youssef Hammoud, convicted in a Hezbollah cigarette-smuggling operation based out of Charlotte, NC, married American citizen Jessica Fortune for a green card to remain in the country.

- Hammoud's brother, Mohammed Hammoud, married three different American women. After arriving in the United States on a counterfeit visa, being ordered deported and filing an appeal, he wed Sabina Edwards to gain a green card. Federal immigration officials refused to award him legal status after this first marriage was deemed bogus in 1994. Undaunted, he married Jessica Wedel in May 1997 and, while still wed to her, paid Angela Tsioumas (already married to someone else, too) to marry him in Detroit. The Tsioumas union netted Mohammed Hammoud temporary legal residence to operate the terror cash scam. He was later convicted on 16 counts that included providing material support to Hezbollah.

- A total of eight Middle Eastern men who plotted to bomb New York landmarks in 1993 -- Fadil Abdelgani, Amir Abdelgani, Siddig Ibrahim Siddig Ali, Tarig Elhassan, Abdo Mohammed Haggag, Fares Khallafalla, Mohammed Saleh, and Matarawy Mohammed Said Saleh -- all obtained legal permanent residence by marrying American citizens.

A year after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, homeland security officials cracked a massive illegal alien Middle Eastern marriage fraud ring in a sting dubbed "Operation Broken Vows." Authorities were stunned by the scope of the operations, which stretched from Boston to South Carolina to California. But marriage fraud remains a treacherous path of least resistance. The waiting period for U.S. citizenship is cut by more than half for marriage visa beneficiaries. Sham marriage monitoring by backlogged homeland security investigators is practically nonexistent.

Jihadists have knowingly and deliberately exploited our lax immigration AND almost non-existent entrance policies to becoming legitmimate American citizens while they privately plot mass murder against all Americans -- What does our government do? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.  Arizona, it seems is taking the first steps to secure our borders from illegals.  Now we need stronger state laws to control, monitor sham marriages for legal citizenship.

We need strong men and women who will support and protect our American borders and not some willy-nilly wuss of a president that bends over backwards to assist and welcome terrorists on our soil.  And to NEVER apologize for its constituents.

Why are members of the secular media soft on Muslims but merciless on Christians?

The answer is much simpler than you think. It is cowardice.


Fear of Islamic swift retribution and retaliation has kept the secular media in the West hiding in their proverbial foxholes. Ever since the Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard ignited a worldwide firestorm with his depiction of the Islamic prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban, members of the western media have been falling over themselves to praise Islamic ideologies.


Fear is a powerful fact of life. Whether it is the fear of acts of terrorism or fear of incurring the wrath of Islamic investors, both can be easily exercised with impunity.


Attacking Christians as a matter of course for causing every ill in society -- from the economic crash to every form of bigotry -- has become not only fashionable but desirable. You need only to read the BBC's website on any given day and you will find countless examples of condemnation of Christians around the globe. For instance, take the case of a government registrar who refused to deny her Christian conviction by performing a marriage ceremony for a same-sex couple. In contrast, you will find only praise for the courage of Muslims who fulfilled their religious duty by going to the Hajj while braving the threat of Swine Flu.


It is safer to pick on Christians. After all, the essence of their faith is love, forgiveness, and peacemaking. They would never respond in similar fashion to their Muslim counterparts.


Back in 1981 when I met someone conveniently labeled (in the West) as a "militant Muslim," his complaint to me was that "Christians are cowards." When I inquired as to his reasons he simply said, "the name of Jesus is used as a swear word in the movies and on TV." When I asked for his advice for Christians, he replied: "They should kill every actor and producer who would blaspheme their Jesus."


Members of the secular media have studied the psyche of both groups and concluded that Christians are easy targets to blame for every ill and bigotry that arises in our culture. When they begin searching for an object to bear the brunt of their anger toward religion, Christians represent a bulls-eye. The secular media has come to realize that their accusations will not be challenged since the tenants of the Christian faith are to love our enemies and bless our persecutors.


But what these members of the media have failed to realize is that the God of the Christians is the One who will avenge His own name sooner or later. And that is truly a fearful and terrifying prospect.

I wish these would have been my words because it is exactly how I feel as a Christian living under a microscope by the liberal MSM and the Left in general.  These words of wisdom were written by Pastor Youssef and I commend this godly man for speaking the truth against the Muslim faith.

Sadly, just yesterday I got into a small debate with my MIL and husband, they believe,  like so many, that Islam radicals are just in the minority and the rest of the Muslim believers are peaceful.  Not true.  However, I just tried right now by showing my husband a verse from the Quran about killing the infidels, he got angry and blah..blah..blah...

Can't win them all.
