    I hate to say this out loud. Upon hearing Rush Limbaugh was in the hospital and his condition serious, I felt a nervous twinge in my stomach. Dare I say it, I thought, “Oh my gosh, what if Rush was gone”. I could not help but think of the shocking passing of Michael Jackson. The next morning, I timidly turned on my TV. “Praise God!”, Rush is resting comfortably. I had the same fearful feeling in my stomach once before years ago. My wife passed out after dinner as we were leaving a restaurant. She awoke and was fine. During…

On numerous Internet forums, and some email lists, gun owners periodically report being hassled by police when pulled over for routine traffic infractions. . . . But often there is a common thread to these stories – the dorky gun owner brought up the gun thing all on her own! . . .

1953: “Infantry Training Regiments” are established at Camp Geiger, North Carolina and Camp Pendleton, California. Marines begin the “Combat Apprenticeship Program” receiving individual combat training under the instruction of World War II and Korean War veterans.

December 31, 2009 1 comment

“On 7 August, 1941, North Carolina tobacco fields were purchased from local farmers for the purpose of training the 1st MarDiv, based in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to execute strategic war plans associated with the “Island Hopping Campaign” in the Pacific theater. Departing from “tent camp,” a year later, the 1st MarDiv assaulted the island of Guadalcanal. By order of the Commandant of the Marine Corps on January 8, 1952, the name “Tent Camp” was changed to “Camp Geiger” in honor of Lieutenant General Roy Stanley Geiger. Lieutenant General Geiger was a pioneering Marine aviator who commanded the I and III Amphibious Corps, and the 10th Army, during World War II.

How to Survive “The Reign of the Anti-Reagan”

How to Survive “The Reign of the Anti-Reagan”
Laura Ingraham

Dear Fellow Conservative,

President Obama didn’t attend the 20th Anniversary celebration of the fall of the Berlin Wall last November (he had another “date night” with Michelle, I believe). But if he had attended, I think I know what he would have said.

Turning to former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev (who actually did attend), Obama would have declared, “Mr. Gorbachev, rebuild this wall!”

Indeed, I sometimes suspect that Obama’s sole approach to any policy problem is to ask himself “What Would Reagan Do?” and then do the opposite — while expecting the same results. So, for instance, Obama thinks that by raising taxes, increasing spending, and weakening the dollar he can restore prosperity just as effectively as Reagan did by cutting taxes, slashing spending, and strengthening the dollar.

    It’s open season on gun carriers. A case out of the First Circuit has some painful lessons for gun carriers in Georgia. A United States Circuit Court of Appeals last week upheld the constitutionality of pointing a gun at any citizen daring to carry, lawfully, a concealed weapon in public. The First Circuit Court of Appeals is the Court just below the United States Supreme Court in the New England states. The case stems from a lawyer who sued a police officer after he was detained for lawfully carrying a concealed weapon while in possession of a license to carry…

Six Georgia Congressmen Challenge Greenhouse Regulations

Posted By admin On December 31, 2009 @ 4:49 am In Featured Stories | 6 Comments

Atlanta Chronicle [1]
Thursday, Dec 31st, 2009

Six Republican congressmen from Georgia have signed onto an Atlanta-based organization’s legal challenge of a federal announcement that could lead to government regulation of greenhouse gas emissions.

The Southeastern Legal Foundation filed a petition last week calling on the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider its Dec. 7 “endangerment finding” declaring carbon dioxide and other gases linked to global warming a threat to public health and the environment.

The petition argues that news of a conspiracy within the scientific community to hide evidence that calls into question manmade impacts on global warming has emerged since the closing of public comment on the EPA filing.

    Because Obama is a surrendered Muslim, he knows the cult’s teaching that lying is a must to further Islam World Rule. Therefore, lying occasionally is not his option. It is a spiritual ritual honored by the Koran’s Allah. Obama lies with a straight face. He lies promptly. He lies on delay. He lies from the Christian pulpit. He lies whenever convenient. This is the first time that America has had an Islamic disciple sitting in the Oval Office. That man is not aligned with the US Constitution. He is a man of the Koran, regarding it as holy writ.

How the Media Spiked Suttongate

How the Media Spiked Suttongate

This past Saturday witnessed the passing of 89 year-old Percy Sutton, a former Manhattan Borough President and, in his day, the most powerful black politician in New York. Although all the major media have reported his death, usually in some detail, none has made any mention of Sutton’s most recent and inconvenient brush with the news, what might profitably be called “Suttongate.”

How Suttongate came to be spiked, when it had the potential to undo the Obama candidacy in September 2008, is a story worth relating. . . [more]

    Perhaps the greatest influence of communism in the United States is upon the political thinking of the American people. Many ideas that have achieved widespread acceptance in the United States on the part of people who have no sympathy with communism are derived directly from Marxist doctrine, but most people who hold those ideas are ignorant of their source. Marxian communism, unlike traditional liberalism, is based on a materialistic concept of life. Liberalism looks upon life primarily in moral terms. The Marxian doctrine that “economics determines all human life” assumes that men act, not on a basis of principles or…

    Nice catch by Andrea Nill — Queen’s Medical Center, where Rush Limbaugh is being treated after experiencing chest pains yesterday, happens to be a crucial location in the birther mythos. A UPI article mistakenly identified that hospital, not the Kapi’olani Medical Center, as the birthplace of Barack Obama. And even though the article was corrected, the “no one can say where Obama was born” myth has persisted.

Shortly after the news broke that the conservative political radio talk show host was hospitalized, Wikipedia updated his page – and pronounced him dead.

III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offense is punished with death.

Not long ago, tired of eight years of Republican rule, terrified by the September 2008 financial panic, unimpressed by the campaign of John McCain, and mesmerized by the hope-and-change elixirs and landmark candidacy of Barack Obama, the American people voted for change. But change of what sort? I think voters wanted an end to the Bush deficits. Big government and Wall Street insiders sickened them. They were tired of the expense of two wars.

“A charismatic leader can seize the opportunity and project himself as an agent of change and a revolutionary leader. Often, people, tired of the status quo, do not have the patience to examine the nature of the proposed change. All they want is change.

“During 1979, when the Iranians were tired of the dictatorial regime of the late Shah, they embraced Khomeini, not because they wanted Islam, but because he promised them change. The word in the street was, ‘anything is better than the Shah.’ They found their error when it was too late.”

I first chanced upon this horror (in abbreviated form) while in the bath reading The Week (which used to be my favourite mag but has gone seriously off now that it has abandoned all pretence of neutrality on the AGW issue). And though I admit it wasn’t quite as bad as having Freddy Krueger’s clawed hand come from beneath the bubbles to disembowel me then drag me down the plughole, it still gave me a seriously nasty turn – as I’m sure it will you too once I’ve parsed its insidious monstrousness.

It’s an article Charles Clover wrote in The Sunday Times a few weeks ago titled “If climate change doesn’t grab you, meet its evil twin.” [2] On first glance, it might look like just more of the same old glib drivel we’ve come to expect from the MSM’s environment specialists…

There’s the statutory de haut en bas dismissal of  your typical sceptic: “always a man, almost invariably wearing a tweed jacket”, apparently, claims the tweed-jacket-wearing, pheasant-shooting Clover.

Florida Attorney General McCollum wants states to resist health care bill

TALLAHASSEE — Attorney General Bill McCollum called on other states’ legal officers Tuesday to review a “tax on living” in the pending federal health-care proposals.

In a conference call with reporters, McCollum also said he might mount a court challenge if the final health package includes a Senate provision requiring the federal government to cover future Medicaid costs in Nebraska. That was added last week for Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., who provided the 60th vote needed by President Obama and Senate Democrats to get the plan to a vote.

State Sen. Dan Gelber of Miami Beach, a Democratic candidate for attorney general, accused McCollum, a Republican, of pouncing on the controversy to advance his own campaign for governor. Gelber said McCollum didn’t use his discretion as the state’s chief legal officer to enforce a state constitutional requirement for adequate funding of education, but chose to make a “legal review” of health care because that issue stirs the conservative base among Republicans and independent voters.

McCollum said “there are a lot of other problems” with the health package, but his main legal objection focused on a requirement all citizens get insurance or pay into a fund that would help cover their medical costs if they get sick or injured. Proponents of the plan have said the mandate is no different than requiring drivers to have auto insurance, but McCollum said people are not required to have a car or to drive.

One of the most bizarre things that’s happened to us in the last two years were the occasions when Rush Limbaugh read things we wrote on the air and called us “those HillBuzz babes in Chicago”.

One of our friends was driving in her car, listening to him live on the radio, and had to pull over, because she couldn’t believe her ears. Being lifelong moderate Democrats, people who DESPISED Limbaugh in high school, college, and most our adulthood, our friend realized at that moment how surreal things had become, with worlds colliding left and right. “Dear God in Heaven, Rush Limbaugh’s reading you. You’re saying things Rush Limbaugh likes. You and Rush Limbaugh are on the same page. Rush Limbaugh thinks you are women. Somewhere, cats are chasing dog, rain’s falling up, and Loni Anderson’s going to win an Oscar”.

Others, especially conservatives, would often say that they support many of Paul’s positions, but… Either his voice was too “high and whiny”, or they viewed his position on America’s foreign policy to be “wacko” and “crazy”.

    That was quite a revealing — and understandable — public tantrum President Obama threw Tuesday. Understandable, because the president has every right to be livid over the “potentially catastrophic breach of security” that nearly saw a terrorist bring down an airliner with 289 people aboard. And revealing, because perhaps Obama has come to understand that he does not enjoy as much control over intelligence matters as he might have imagined. Also, that the Islamist threat to America won’t be countered with mere words.

    Two weeks ago, Time magazine once again proved to have little appreciation for the US Constitution when it announced that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke was its “person of the year 2009.” He deserved this honor, the magazine’s editors said, because he “has dramatically expanded” the Fed “and reinvented it.” In other words, because he used the economic crisis as an excuse to radically increase the size of government. Today, the British editors of the Times of London proved to have a much better understanding of what truly matters: Neda Soltan was not political. She did not vote in the…

    Nation ^ | December 31, 2009 | John Nichols
    The original sin of the good-riddance decade came in December of 2000, when the United States Supreme Court intervened to stop a complete recount of the votes in Florida and then declared George Bush to be the president. This extreme judicial activism was not merely a devastating assault on American democracy. It set in motion the Bush presidency, and with it the pathologies that the Bush-Cheney administration imposed on the country in the form of unnecessary wars, failed economic policies, assaults on civil liberties and crudely divisive and hyper-partisan governance. Bush, Dick Cheney and aides are surely to blame for…

Shocking development: Mrs Obama decides enough is enough: “My husband was born in Hawaii and adopted by his step father, does that make him unpatriotic; she asks”, on a direct telephone to API.

Posted by africanpress on December 31, 2009

Accusing API of colluding with American internet bloggers in an effort to bring down her husband, Mrs Obama said she decided to call API because of what she termed, API’s help to spread rumours created by American bloggers and other racist media outlets�in their efforts to damage a black man’s name, saying she hopes African Media was mature enough to be in the front to give unwavering support to her husband, a man Africans should identify themselves with.�

When API told her that our online news media was only relaying what the American Bloggers and other media outlets had discovered through their investigations, Mrs Obama was angered and she came out loud with the following: “African press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view,” and she went to state that, “it is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband. There is no shame in being adopted by a step father. All dirt has been thrown onto my husband’s face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband’s adoption by His step father. The important thing here is where my husband’s heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that My husband loves this country and�his adoption never changed his love for this country.

America’s Secret ICE Castles

 AVENGING ANGELS AVENGING ANGELS

“If you don’t have enough evidence to charge someone criminally but you think he’s illegal, we can make him disappear.” Those chilling words were spoken by James Pendergraph, then executive director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Office of State and Local Coordination, at a conference of police and sheriffs in August 2008. Also present was Amnesty International’s Sarnata Reynolds, who wrote about the incident in the 2009 report “Jailed Without Justice” and said in an interview, “It was almost surreal being there, particularly being someone from an organization that has worked on disappearances for decades in other countries. I couldn’t believe he would say it so boldly, as though it weren’t anything wrong.”

ICE agents regularly impersonate civilians–OSHA inspectors, insurance agents, religious workers–in order to arrest longtime US residents who have no criminal history. Jacqueline Stevens has reported a web-exclusive companion piece on ICE agents’ ruse operations.

Pendergraph knew that ICE could disappear people, because he knew that in addition to the publicly listed field offices and detention sites, ICE is also confining people in 186 unlisted and unmarked subfield offices, many in suburban office parks or commercial spaces revealing no information about their ICE tenants–nary a sign, a marked car or even a US flag. (Presumably there is a flag at the Veterans Affairs Complex in Castle Point, New York, but no one would associate it with the Criminal Alien Program ICE is running out of Building 7.) Designed for confining individuals in transit, with no beds or showers, subfield offices are not subject to ICE Detention Standards. The subfield office network was mentioned in an October report by Dora Schriro, then special adviser to Janet Napolitano, secretary of Homeland Security, but no locations were provided.

Dear Mr. Santomauro,
I just read your intriguing review of Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides in one of the many Yahoo! groups I scan for new material. Do you, by chance, have a link to a published version of the review? If we wanted to rerun it, would that be okay?
I have been reading your own revisionist writing for several years now, and must say that I found it outlandish at first. Since exploring revisionists ideas myself — with the help of my friend, Dr. Fredrick Toben — I have become open-minded to your contention that the Holocaust has either been exaggerated or simply contrived (as Allied political and military leaders believed at the end of World War II) from Soviet propaganda.
One thing argues overwhelmingly in support of the revisionist perspective, and that is the ceaseless efforts of self-interested parties to illegalize investigation or debate about the Holocaust story. They label a judicious Jew like David Cole “self-hating” and send him death threats until he recants. They label a gentile gentleman like Dr. Toben “anti-Semitic” and send him to prison! Any group so intent on suppressing free speech must be promoting lies.

In the 6000+ years of man’s history, the “pinnacle moment” is the Abomination of Desolation, the key event that will occur in the midst of the Tribulation (a terrible seven-year period that will mark the end of this age). It will be the time when the Man of Lawlessness (i.e., The Anti-Christ) will break his covenant with Israel (Daniel 9:27) and establish himself as Almighty God (Daniel 11:36-37, 2 Thess. 2:2-4, Rev. 13:14-15). He will demand total, absolute allegiance and worship (Rev. 13:16-18).

This master politician of Europe’s Socialistic European Community (Daniel 9:26) will rise to power, but it isn’t until the key event of the Confirming of the Covenant with Israel that He will be revealed as the Man of Sin, Lucifer’s Anti-Christ (2 Thess. 2:7-8). At this time the Anti-Christ will establish himself as a capable leader and will emerge as the key player on the world stage. Due to the myriad of conflicts, crises and confusion, He will quickly militarize and rebuild Europe’s military strength (Daniel 11:38). It is during the first half of this seven-year period that he will win over the world’s affections. He will be the darling of the global media; he will be praised as the peace-maker/ fighter and protector of “human” rights (Rev. 6:2).

    Hitler wanted to create a thousand year Third Reich of Nazi world domination. Fortunately, Hitler’s evil dream was crushed by the United States and our alies. Imagine what a large part of the world would be like if Hitler had succeeded. Hitler had his version of the madrassas when he took the German school system and turned them into radical, hate-filled places of totalitarian indoctrination. There would have been centuries of generations of people indoctrinated in the hate cult of Nazism had Hitler won the war. The Nazi empire would always be a threat to the world as it would…

    Four days after Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab allegedly failed to blow up a Northwest Airlines jet from Amsterdam to Detroit, government officials, security experts and members of the public are still trying to figure out what went wrong and how air travel security can be improved. After the botched attack, at least one member of Congress, Peter King, R-N.Y., has suggested that profiling by religion or race could improve security. In an interview on Fox News, King said, “The fact is, while the overwhelming majority of Muslims are outstanding people, on the other hand, 100 percent of the Islamic terrorists are…

    Two Guantanamo terrorists released in November were behind the Christmas Day attack in Detroit. Our security agencies ignored their own security measures and their own intelligence — including warnings from the terrorist’s father that his son was involved with terrorists. The chief of our Department of Homeland Security is preoccupied with covering her ass, and conferring citizenship rights on enemy combatants. Instead of throwing the enemy in the darkest possible dungeon and extracting information on the next terrorist attack, both she and her president are referring to him as an “alleged” bomber and helping him to lawyer up because after…

On Terrorism it’s Time to Know, to Profile, and to Discriminate

Posted 12/30/2009 ET

After the Christmas Day near disaster in Detroit, it is time for Americans to demand effective anti-terrorist actions.

Over eight years after 9/11 and 30 years after the Iranian illegal seizure of the United States embassy and the 444 day Iranian hostage crisis, Washington is still avoiding being intellectually honest about the war we are in.

Our Politically Correct Government is Making Life More Miserable For the Innocent

America is long overdue for a serious global strategy that includes targeting threats such as the terrorist killer at Fort Hood, the individuals recently arrested in Detroit, Denver and New York, and the five Americans detained in Pakistan.

The scale, persistence and sophistication of the enemy requires an honesty, a clarity, and a scale appropriate to the response.

Once again, instead of targeting the source of the threats, our politically correct government decides to make life more miserable for the travelling public by imposing hopelessly meaningless rules such as not allowing passengers to leave their seats in the last hour of the flight.  Bound by cultural sensitivities, the default reaction of the bureaucracy is to review the procedures and wring its hands ineffectively.

Today, because our elites fear politically incorrect honesty, they believe that it is better to harass the innocent, delay the harmless, and risk the lives of every American than to do the obvious, the effective, and the necessary.

Obama Curbs Secrecy of Classified Documents

Obama Curbs Secrecy of Classified Documents
NY Times ^ | December 29, 2009 | CHARLIE SAVAGE

Posted on Wednesday, December 30, 2009 2:49:34 PM by lowbridge

President Obama declared on Tuesday that “no information may remain classified indefinitely” as part of a sweeping overhaul of the executive branch’s system for protecting classified national security information.

In an executive order and an accompanying presidential memorandum to agency heads, Mr. Obama signaled that the government should try harder to make information public if possible, including by requiring agencies to regularly review what kinds of information they classify and to eliminate any obsolete secrecy requirements.

“Agency heads shall complete on a periodic basis a comprehensive review of the agency’s classification guidance, particularly classification guides, to ensure the guidance reflects current circumstances and to identify classified information that no longer requires protection and can be declassified,” Mr. Obama wrote in the order, released while he was vacationing in Hawaii.

He also established a new National Declassification Center at the National Archives to speed the process of declassifying historical documents by centralizing their review, rather than sending them in sequence to different agencies. He set a four-year deadline for processing a 400-million-page backlog of such records that includes archives related to military operations during World War II and the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

Moreover, Mr. Obama eliminated a rule put in place by former President George W. Bush in 2003 that allowed the leader of the intelligence community to veto decisions by an interagency panel to declassify information. Instead, spy agencies who object to such a decision will have to appeal to the president.

Could Obama Use INTERPOL to Evade Constitutional Law?
NewsReal ^ | December 30, 2009 | Liz Blaine

Posted on Wednesday, December 30, 2009 2:51:35 PM by callisto

Much has been written recently since ThreatsWatch first broke the story of President Obama’s stealth Executive Order (EO) rendering an international police force immune from the restrictions of the Constitution and American law. Reports are focusing on the ramifications of the EO to U.S. sovereignty and the potential surrender of Americans to war crime tribunals in the International Criminal Court (ICC). But is the President using the 2(c) provision to sidestep Constitutional law and place the U.S. under the jurisdiction of the ICC without ratification of the UN Treaty by 2/3 of the Senate? Or is he granting unrecognized authority to INTERPOL, the International Criminal Police Organization, providing them unrestrained power over the American people? And could he use these privileges to step above and beyond the Constitution, or as a means for political cronies to profit?

TEXAS, 12/30/2009 — It’s becoming more and more difficult to keep a straight face at any mention of the U.S. free press. The mainstream media, often called the corporate media by semi-truthful left wing publications, is nothing more or less than propaganda. It is overwhelmingly owned and run by Jews to turn the American dream of uninterrupted security into the Arab nightmare of endless war.
There was a time, when I was writing NBC-TV editorials, when I might have viewed it differently, but since 9/11 the ugly truth has been apparent to anyone with a brains enough to think and guts enough to write it down. Anyone unwilling to receive this crucial insight from this Christian critic can read it in plain English from an LA Times Jewish journalist, Joel Stein, who last year published the formidably frank column, How Jewish Is Hollywood? In its conclusion, he states:
“I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.” — How Jewish Is Hollywood?, LA Times, 12/19/2008, http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-stein19-2008dec19,0,4676183.column
The ongoing MSM blackout of the UK’s Chilcott Inquiry about the Bush/Blair war crimes leading us to Iraq is a month long travesty that teaches us the same lesson. The fact that Jewish neocons played just as large a role in creating the chaos is absolutely forbidden knowledge here in the Land of the Free, but it was openly discussed in Israel:
“The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, pushing President Bush to change the course of history.” — White man’s burden, Ha’aretz, 4/5/2003, http://www.grailwerk.com/docs/haaretzdaily01.htm
It should come as no surprise, then, that we are once again kept in the dark by the MSM, and the wool has been pulled down over our eyes for good measure:
