When Muslims want to engage in an activity which is insulting to non-Muslims, the left calls opposition to such activity as racist or bigoted or Islamophobic.
After all, Muslims have a Constitutional right to build where they want regardless of whom it may offend.But when that wacko from Florida wanted to burn a Quran, did the left support him? Did they call the President a racist for criticizing what the preacher wanted to do? Did they call General Petraeus a bigot for asking the preacher not to do what he wanted because it might offend some group?Doesn’t an American citizen have the right to do any lawful act even if the act is insulting, disrespectful, offensive? Liberals say,
“No.” Only a Muslim has the right to be insulting, disrespectful, offensive.Why the double-standard?Don’t bother answering, I know why: because any enemy of America is a friend to the left. If the dominant religion of our country were Muslim and our society Capitalist I ask for your willing suspension of disbelief at the oxymoron and Christians wanted to build a church near a site that showed disrespect for the memory of those who died there, the left would be supporting Christians and they would be calling Muslims bigots and racists.If the presence of Christians would help bring the downfall of our Capitalist society, then the left would be supporting them with all their heart and all their might.
What we have witnessed is not a fight for religious freedom, that’s nonsense. What the left is fighting for is the overthrow of our system of government, our Capitalist way of life, of our property rights and our individual freedom.That is why Obama took the side of the Muslims and against the side of the Christian pastor. Not because he favors Muslims, although he does, but because he desires the destruction of Capitalism.
So far he’s doing a good job.

Elvia Martinez-Montez always sensed there was something fishy about her father’s death. Sixty years and an exhumation later, she and her son are sure of it. And while they can’t name a suspect, they think it has something to do with a hidden cache of Nazi gold.
It helps that both of them happen to be paranormal investigators. They live in San Antonio but on a visit to the Rio Grande Valley, the two unveiled their theory Tuesday and shared a forensic examiner’s report on the dug-up remains of Adam G. Martinez.
He had returned from World War II with a spring in his step; he’d been part of Patton’s Third Army and found himself something of a war hero. He ran a bar-café and started up a taxi company, one of the first in the Valley. At 35, some six years after his return, he was prosperous enough to sport a new car — a 1950 Dodge sedan in a handsome shade of blue.
It was beside that car (or under it, depending on the news account) that his body was found on the morning of Dec. 18, 1950. That the car was unscathed seemed a little odd to Benito Garza, who was 17 when it happened and still lives in the home with the circular driveway where the car and body were found.
He offered a written statement to that effect a few weeks ago when the ghost hunters approached him. But it wasn’t just Garza.
“I was constantly being told that my father died under mysterious circumstances and that when I grew up I should look into it,” Martinez-Montez said.Now 64, she poked around in the 1980s but gave up after too many doors slammed in her face and she began to feel threatened.
A plastic bag of her father’s belongings discovered during a 2007 family reunion gave her a jump start. It contained war maps, marked up in her father’s distinctive handwriting.
The maps took on significance following a 2008 visit to her father’s grave. On a whim, her son Rocky Montez had set down a small audio recorder.
When he listened to it weeks later, he heard what ghost hunters call “electronic voice phenomenon.”
“Go back to the grave,” the voice said. “It’s in France, Mitz-Metz. Gold in it.”
Montez replayed the recording Tuesday, mouthing the words as he picked them out through the scratchy garble of wind and road sounds.
Thirteen words, the two said, is a heck of a feat for a spirit, especially in the crowded soul-sphere of a cemetery.
States across the country want Washington to stop meddling in their affairs when it comes to the environment, health care and guns, and it’s not just right-wingers leading the charge.
Last week, Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal fired a shot at the Environmental Protection Agency for its attempt to coerce the state into regulating carbon dioxide as if this naturally occurring gas were a pollutant.In a letter to the EPA, Mr. Freudenthal cited a 1999 act of the legislature that prohibited him from taking any action to implement the Kyoto Protocol regarding reductions in so-called greenhouse gases.
Without U.S. Senate ratification, Kyoto never became the law of the land, and congressional Democrats have failed to enact the restrictions through a cap-and-trade law. That has left the Obama administration with no choice but to turn to the unelected bureaucracy to implement its agenda.That doesn’t sit well with Mr. Freudenthal, a Democrat and a 2008 convention superdelegate for Mr. Obama.
Mr. Freudenthal hasn’t been in any rush to call a special session to ask the legislature to modify state law. “He’s very troubled by the administration’s policies toward coal and other natural resources,” governor’s office spokesman Leigh Anne G. Manlove told The Washington Times. “He has some serious concerns about how they impact Wyoming.”~snip~This is the silver lining to Mr. Obama’s legislative excess.
Even members of his own party can see that it’s time to restore respect for the Ninth and 10th amendments to the Constitution by limiting federal power.
In 1935 Sinclair Lewis wrote It Can’t Happen Here, a novel about the rise of tyranny in America, whose message was that it indeed can happen here.
Just to remind us that in fact it “can happen here”, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer used the occasion of his appearance on noted legal forum, Good Morning America, to suggest that there may not be any First Amendment protection for burning the Koran.
“Holmes said it doesn’t mean you can shout ‘fire’ in a crowded theater,” Breyer told me. “Well, what is it? Why? Because people will be trampled to death. And what is the crowded theater today? What is the being trampled to death?”Breyer’s statement was every bit as flippant and ignorant of the Constitution and even previous Supreme Court decisions as you would expect from a Clinton appointee.
To begin with, Breyer misstated what Holmes had said and what he had meant. In Schenk vs United States, Holmes wrote, “The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing a panic.” The key word here is “falsely”. Shouting “fire” in a crowded theater when there really is a fire, is a warning. Shouting it when there is no fire, is a malicious attempt to start a panic.
Holmes used the metaphor to argue that freedom of speech was contextual, so that some speech which presented a clear and present danger in a time of war could be banned. An Anti-War argument during peacetime might be legal, but illegal in wartime.Breyer is relying on a widely discredited decision from almost a century ago, and taking it completely out of context.
t’s as if Breyer had decided to pluck Dred Scott vs Sanford,
According to recently leaked documents, the Pennsylvania Office of Homeland Security has been tracking anti-gas drilling groups and their meetings — including a public screening of the film “Gasland,” a documentary about the environmental hazards of natural gas drilling.
The office has included the information in its weekly intelligence bulletins sent to law enforcement agencies.The bulletins are also sent to gas companies drilling in the Marcellus Shale.Activists and environmental groups have responded with outrage and some alarm.
“There’s something dead-fishy here. … Something is rotten,” activist Gene Stilp said. He has called for a formal House and Senate inquiry into the activities of the Homeland Security Office.State Homeland Security Director James Powers explained that he has been including anti-gas drilling activist information in his triweekly intelligence briefings for about a month because there have been “five to 10” incidents of vandalism around the state related to the natural gas industry, which is one of the sectors he is charged with monitoring.
One of those incidents, he said, involved someone shooting a natural gas container tank with a shotgun in Venango County.Powers said the briefings are sent to local law enforcement and the owners and operators of “critical infrastructure.”Comparing himself to Tommy Lee Jones’ character in the film “The Fugitive,” Powers said, “I don’t care” which side of the issue someone is on — or if he or she is innocent. “My concern is public safety.”
However, the “intelligence” in the briefings includes lists of public meetings the state has determined anti-drilling activists plan to attend.
Recently, I picked up a copy of She’s The Boss – The Disturbing Truth About Nancy Pelosi by Rochelle Schweizer.
This is a riveting expose on one the most power hungry, brutal female politicians of all time and as you will see after reading the book, it runs in her family.
The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is no retiring, kind and meek grandmother. She is made of Baltimore steel and she has been forged in the boiling corrupt vat of politics in a never-ending quest for power and status that she feels is her birthright.Pelosi came from a family that bears a striking resemblance to organized crime. She will ruthlessly use and discard any one in her way or who will forward her agenda. She rules the House with an iron grip and she is simultaneously feared and hated by most politicians. Those who claim to support and adore her are sycophants that are in the DC game for money, power and prestige.
Her minions are made all the more dangerous due to Pelosi’s powerful reach and thuggish policies. No radical agenda is too outrageous if she deems it worthy. Pelosi’s hypocrisy knows no bounds and she feels no shame.An elitist’s elitist, Pelosi is cunning in the extreme. Her entire political career has been virtually choreographed and painstakingly planned. You won’t hear apologies from her and most likely, you’ll never see the attack coming if you are in her sites.
Pelosi’s vision for this country is horrific. Instilling Marxism and power for the elite, she envisions an America under her gavel and powerful oversight. Americans will be condemned to poverty and slavery to the state if she has her way. She will not be stopped unless Americans stop her tyrannical rule and the hideous progressive policies she pushes forward.
She has risen to the most powerful position held by a woman ever, simply by scaling the political ladder and she is far from finished.I am currently doing thorough research on Pelosi and this book is a wonder – it will be added as a listed documented tool that has added incredibly to our piles of information on Nancy Pelosi. I would recommend every American read She’s The Boss. Then go over to KeyWiki and read our research on Nancy Pelosi. It is my opinion, that next to Cass Sunstein, she is one of the most dangerous idealogues in our government and evil as a descriptive term, just doesn’t do justice to Pelosi’s agenda.
From Andrew Breitbart:Rochelle Schweizer presents compelling evidence that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a political boss operating on overdrive and has turned her House into a corrupt institution by pulling the levers of political power for her benefit as well as that of her allies.
