Additional Link to Chicago Tribune article: “NATO: No ‘business as usual’ with Moscow” The Russian planes have been challenged by Alaska-based F-22s and F-15s and escorted in the other direction without incident, officials said. …

BRUSSELS, Belgium – BRUSSELS, Belgium — NATO allies said Tuesday there would be no “business as usual” with Moscow until Russian troops withdraw from all parts of Georgia, but members of the Western alliance disagreed on the extent to which Moscow should be more permanently isolated.

An alliance declaration calling on Russia to “demonstrate — both in word and deed” its commitment to its cooperative relationship with NATO, one U.S. official said, was “better than we thought” could be achieved in the face of reluctance from some European partners.

Wright returns. Says Obama to be first U.S. president to “have a black woman sleeping” in White House “legally”

“Uncle” Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, the former pastor of Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.)’s former church, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago (both tossed under the Obama bus), made an appearance today at Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church in downtown Houston, Athena Jones at MSNBC’s First Read reported.

Mike Snyder of the Houston Chronicle wrote that Wright has been “a regular guest minister at Wheeler Avenue for more than 15 years” although a “scheduled appearance in March was canceled because of security concerns.”

Wright “spoke glowingly of Obama while preaching at Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church, as part of a message that God takes ‘the ordinary and turns it into the extraordinary’,” Jones wrote.

The Never-Ending War on American Freedom

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo


DIGG THIS

From the beginning of the American Republic there has been a group of influential people who have devoted their lives and careers to putting more Power In Government (PIGs). As soon as the American Revolution ended Alexander Hamilton schemed to overthrow the first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation, and replace it with a document that would legitimize a permanent president who would appoint all the governors and have veto power over all state legislation. He wanted a king, in other words, who could force British-style mercantilism and an imperialistic foreign policy on America without any significant resistance by the citizens of the states. He failed during his lifetime, but that is essentially the system Americans live under today. We now live in “Hamilton’s republic,” as his idolaters gleefully remind us.

As soon as Hamilton’s party, the Federalists, gained power, one of the first things they did was to rescind the First Amendment to the new Constitution with the Sedition Act during the presidency of John Adams. Hamilton authored several long-winded reports as Treasury Secretary in which he invented the insidious notions of “implied” powers in the Constitution along with such an expansive interpretation of the General Welfare and Commerce Clauses that the Constitution would become useless as a restraint on governmental tyranny.

Why Hillary Clinton cannot legally be President

Why Hillary Clinton cannot legally be President.
JonChristianRyter.com ^ | June 13, 2004 | Jon Christian Ryter

Author’s Note: I originally wrote and posted this article on my website on June 13, 2004. The URL was hit 11.4 million times in a two-day period and was the most read article on www.jonchrisitanryter.com in the history of my website. At least one well-recognized constitutional lawyer agreed with the view of the article that, without a Constitutional amendment degenderizing Article II of the Constitution, Hillary Rodham Clinton cannot constitutionally seek—or legally hold—the office of President of the United States. That, of course will not stop the former First Lady and current junior Senator from New York from running anyway and attempting to amend the US Constitution by precedent. If no one files a petititon before the US Supreme Court (which is the only court with jurisdiction over this question) and should Hillary win, the Constitution will have been amended by common practice—opening the door wide for the elimination of the 2nd Amendment using the same tactics.

By B. R. GOWANI

What if:

Abu Faisal was White House press secretary (instead of Ari Fleischer)

Altaf Adham was deputy national security advisor (instead of Elliott Abrams)

Sofian Bishr was Supreme Court Justice instead of Stephen Breyer

Tarf Kaukab was Nightline host (instead of Ted Koppel)

Brooks)

Rukan Badar Ghiyath was Supreme Court Justice (instead of Ruth Bader Ginsburg)

Thamer Furud was New York Times columnist (instead of Thomas Friedman)

Laith Keid was host of Larry King show (instead of Larry King)

Yousuf “Yo” Luqman was US Senator from Connecticut (instead of Joseph “Joe” Lieberman)

Zuhaa Midlaj was New York Times reporter (instead of Judith Miller)

Dawud Fouad was Bush’s speechwriter (instead of David Frum)

Lu’ay Labib was Cheney’s Chief of Staff (instead of Lewis Libby)

Polat Walif-Rizk was Rumsfeld’s Deputy Secretary of Defense (instead of Paul Wolfowitz)

Mahdi Parvez

Basil Kishwar was the editor of The Weekly Standard instead of (Bill Kristol)

Ali Wisam was the famous Nobel Peace laureate (instead of Elie Wiesel)

Imagine the above Muslims in key positions. There are 2 per cent  Jews in the US and the same percentage of Muslims. Now consider for a moment that both communities have exchanged places as it happens on that TV show “Wife Swap.” Here not only wives but the entire community exchanges places. Or a still better example would be the 1970 film “Watermelon Man” in which a white man wakes up in the morning and discovers he has turned into a black person. Blackness becomes his fate.

[Announcement: Did you know Alan Stang has a new radio show? Click here for details.]

As I write, Senator Hussein must confront the recent assertion in federal court by Philadelphia attorney Philip Berg, a Democrat official, that he is not a natural born citizen. Attorney Berg says he has the documents to prove that Hussein was born in Kenya, not Hawaii, and therefore is not eligible to be President. Berg’s web site is obamacrimes.com. Go there and decide for yourself. If Hussein survives, we shall have much more to say about Zbig Brother.
