As defined by Wikipedia: “In its most general form, humanitarianism is an ethic of kindness, benevolence and sympathy extended universally and impartially to all human beings. Humanitarianism has been an evolving concept historically but universality is a common element in its evolution. NO DISTINCTION is to be made in the face of human suffering or abuse on grounds of gender, tribal, caste, religious or national divisions.” (Note: words capitalized are for emphasis only and are not in the original quote.)
The majority of humanitarians preach a social gospel and teach the “golden rule,” but what a great many humanitarians neglect and reject are the key foundational moral and natural laws for a healthy and prosperous society. If they adhered to and preached such virtues, the world would be a totally different place. The majority of individuals who practice this type of humanitarianism are the very ones who praise and support oppressive dictators and socialistic dominance. They are the ones who hate moral laws and absolutes. As a matter of fact, they will fight tooth and nail to preserve their subjective agenda of “human rights.” These so-called “rights” are simply the promotion and practice of transgressing God-ordained moral laws. These individuals hold hands with their like-minded fellows to seek a world without the Rule and Law of Almighty God, their Creator and Sustainer.

When hypocritical, godless elites from Hollywood and the decadent music industry – who have been the catalysts for the destruction of American culture and society – get together for a relief project, expect to find the godless “Eros-love” and the god (Lucifer) of this world behind it (Rom. 1:28-32; 2 Cor. 4:3; Eph. 2:2; 1 John 4:3).

Underneath headlines about Libya, the Japanese disaster and the Republicans’ dainty attempts to nip around the edges of our massive federal debt, the culture war is raging.

But we have fallen, and have been ruined by sin, made unfit for heaven, yes we have even forfeited the right to remain in God’s Universe. Who can undo what we have done? Who is worthy to commence God’s plan for a new Creation of Heaven,Earth, and even man? It has to be a man, for by man came death, therefore by man must come the resurrection from the dead.
The new Song teaches us that a solution has been found, a man has come forth who is indeed worthy and able to undo what we have done, to save us from our sins, and to make us over again in God’s Image. Worthy is the Lamb that was slain… and has redeemed us by his blood!
The events of Revelation 4-5 stretch from the creation all the way down to the end of all time. At the last we come to the culmination of history, for John saw where we are headed, in this vision we behold it with rapt awe.

Remember when smokers begged for people to be a little understanding? Remember when smokers warned that there would be a tax that ALL people would have to pay on something they held dear? Well, I think the GPS tax for tracking and taxing every mile you drive just may fit that bill.
This tax, like the cigarette smokers tax, will have devastating consequences on the poor and middle income people. With a tax on every mile we drive, not to mention tracking information on every mile we drive, are we seeing the “hope” and “change” that Obama and the democrats were talking about?

President Obama arrived home to the White House on Wednesday from his five-day trip to Latin America and found himself locked out of the French doors to the Oval Office, as captured by several news organizations. My Media Research Center colleague Tim Graham reminded me that back on Nov. 21, 2005, the New York Times published on its front page a photo of President George W. Bush making a face after trying to leave a press conference in Beijing through a locked door, accompanied by an article that mentioned the gaffe.

The Manning Report Obama Civilian Army Creating A Police State? (via ~ The GUNNY “G” BLOG & E-MAIL ~)
Yesterday, I watched about 5000 screaming, chanting, resentful crazies, many of whom carried signs that said “undocumented and unafraid” and “WE WILL NOT LEAVE!” take over Washington St. outside the Georgia Capitol.
There were illegal aliens in charge of crowd control telling American citizens that they could not pass on certain sections of public – Capitol grounds – property and Capitol Police and State Patrol officers warning Americans to obey.
Most of the day-long rally was conducted in Spanish. The Capitol grounds looked and sounded like a chaotic third world barrio. In speeches, many Democrat politicians assured the raving crowd that they had a civil right to be here illegally and that help was on the way. I posted some links to local TV coverage HERE (scroll down). You can see what the crazies are saying HERE.

A little over a decade before anyone had heard of Barack Obama, cyberpunk author William Gibson already had his number, as it were. The novel was called Idoru (“idol” in Japanese) and told the story of a holographic emanation, an entirely virtual media star projected upon an adoring world. As Rolling Stone put it in a review, “Gibson envisions a future in which the lines between the virtual and the actual are terminally blurred. How ‘real’ are today’s celebrities?”
There’s no doubt that the world’s “greatest” celebrity creation is Barack Obama, an idol who mesmerized the American public and much of the West besides, drawing enormous crowds wherever he went, inspiring millions upon millions of mindless infatuates who regarded him as the answer to all the world’s problems. People gazed upon him and swooned over his pectorals or felt tingles crawling up their legs. Others thought a god had arisen in their midst. He was the savior, the messiah, “The One” who would resolve the world’s most intractable conflicts, who would roll back the seas, who would introduce transparency into American politics, and who would bring harmony and wisdom, hope and change, to a distracted electorate.
Two years have passed and the shine has faded. Every initiative that the American idoru has undertaken has generated only controversy and failure. Add to the record of his blunders and hesitations the fact of his shrouded identity, anemic CV and playboy-like behavior, and we have a veritable enigma on our hands. Does he fly under or over the radar? The then-senator who constantly voted “present” seems as president disturbingly absent, junketing about the planet, shooting endless rounds of golf, practicing his jump shot, warbling at parties, sipping slurpies.
Worse, when it comes to issues of major significance, Obama cannot seem to make up his mind about anything. Taking a reasoned, consistent and principled position seems beyond his means. Rather, he is prone, to quote T.S. Eliot from The Hollow Men, to “behaving as the wind behaves.” Is he in or out of Afghanistan? Is he for the Ground Zero mosque or against? Does he admire or disapprove of his former pastor, America-hating Reverend Wright? Is he prosecuting terrorists in civil court or relying on military tribunals? Are the Articles of the Constitution to be observed or ignored? Is Congress to be circumvented or consulted in carrying out domestic and foreign policies, a question recently highlighted by his mobilizing the EPA to skirt legislative resistance to Cap and Trade or participating in the action against Muammar Gaddafi? For that matter, is he committed to the Libyan adventure or not? Is he pro-Israel, as he has often affirmed, or anti-Israel, as his conduct plainly suggests? Why does he support the so-called “democracy movement” in Egypt but not in Syria or Iran? If health care reform is meant to be universal, why have public sector unions been given exemptions and congressmen spared? Why do statements emerging from the White House often seem downright contradictory? These paradoxes, evasions and ambiguities can be multiplied indefinitely.
via Is Obama Real?.
The War Powers Act circumvented the Constitution’s clear language and since its adoption, presidents have been emboldened to go to war without getting a specific declaration from Congress. Now Barack Obama has taken this trend to the next logical step: he didn’t even bother to consult Congress, apparently believing that when a bunch of foreign dignitaries say it’s OK, he can send Americans off to die and kill.
That’s the lowest support of any military action over three decades…

But few of know that even those European nations were under the threat of piracy and depredations by Muslim pirates from North Africa. These Barbary pirates used to intercept commercial vessels in the sea, loot the merchandise as booty and capture white Europeans sailors as slaves for selling in the slave-markets of the Middle East and other Muslim countries. In addition to mid-sea piracy, they used to launch raids in the coastal villages of Europe and capture both male and female Europeans and forced slavery on them.
“Pirate raids for the acquisition of slaves occurred in towns and villages on the African Atlantic seaboard, as well as in Europe. Reports of Barbary raids and kidnappings of those in Italy, Spain, Portugal, England, Ireland, Scotland as far north as Iceland exist from between the 16th to the 19th centuries. Between 1 million and 1.25 million Europeans were captured by pirates and sold as slaves during this time period. Famous accounts of Barbary slave raids include a mention in the Diary of Samuel Pepys and a raid on the coastal village of Baltimore, Ireland, during which pirates left with the entire populace of the settlement. Such raids in the Mediterranean were so frequent and devastating that the coastline between Venice to Malaga suffered widespread depopulation, and settlement there was discouraged,” says a study.
After the United States took decisive military actions in 1815, followed by an Anglo-Dutch joint raid in 1816 to destroy most of the pirate fleet, the rulers of Barbary States were forced to sign agreements, prohibiting the practice of piracy and enslaving Christians. However, piracy and enslavement in North Africa ended only after France started the occupation of North African states in 1830. Nonetheless, Muslim enslavement of Black Africans continued further on

Since Bush I, we have intervened in Panama, Kuwait, Iraq, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya. Had Sens. John McCain and Joe Lieberman gotten their way, we would have been fighting Russians in Georgia and bombing Iran.
Add up all those we have killed, wounded, widowed, orphaned or uprooted, and the number runs into the millions. All these wars have helped mightily to bankrupt us.
Have they made us more secure?
Looking at Obama as the simultaneous embodiment of Bush and Clinton might help to explain why everyone is so out of their minds right now. Politics is defined both by the rhetoric of the state and that of the opposition. The dizzying flip-flops on all sides are easier to understand in light of Obama’s peculiar style of governance.
Backing up almost twenty years to Slick Willy’s first term, the populist right was up in arms about Washington, about Waco, about nation-building and Hillarycare. Then the Republicans won Congress and by the end of the decade, the right calmed down a bit, probably predicting they would soon inherit the imperial executive they had pretended to oppose out of principle.
The anti-Bush movement was, at first, anti-state – in particular, opposed to war, imperialism, and unlimited executive power and corporatism. But after Katrina, the left once again reverted to its old ways, criticizing the administration for governing poorly, as opposed to flexing too much power. The problem was, once again, that Bush was not doing enough.
Today, the anti-Bush peace movement and Tea Party have both subsided, the first group placated by the 2008 election and the second pacified by the midterm Republican victory. They are both also probably simply fatigued from years of protest. I wish they’d both get out in the streets and join forces, realizing they are actually both opposed to power grabs by the same government. But that will, alas, probably never happen.
Yet the anti-Clinton right and the anti-Bush left should recognize that Obama sums up the horrors of both administrations. Instead, these groups are divided, convinced by the government they should fear each other more than the regime. We have the 1990s hysteria about populist rightwingers helping to bolster the police state. Alongside the fear of American patriots is the Bush-era hysteria toward Muslims and crackdowns on antiwar protesters. It is the perfect storm for both fascism and socialism of the American variety.

The first thing one learns in debating class is to never attack a person, just the person’s conclusions. For example, if you don’t like the message, kill the messenger. Alright, kill the messenger, why don’t you? So what? The message is still the same. Today’s prime example is that of the non-existent birth certificate. There is no birth certificate, so what’s with this “birther” name-calling? Calling someone a birther doesn’t address the birth certificate question. Actually, there is a birth certificate and it’s from Kenya. End of name-calling. But it’s not over, is it? Sleight of hand, take your mind away from the truth. Just hear lies. Day after day. After day.
And what about the saturation level of the lie ‘either?’ “Stimulus” is another name for “payoff.” “Transparency” is a catch-word for closed doors. The truth is a lie and a lie is still a lie. The mainstream media dishes out portions of lies and more lies. Every day. Americans have reached the limit of lies. The fight for the truth has been fought a thousand times yet must be fought for the thousand and first. There is no other way. The cowards, the bullies, cheats and lying politicians will not, cannot, survive in the light of truth.
Cao now has reported that she will be including the Kenyan birth certificate document, a copy of which was sent to all members of the 111th Congress last year, as an addendum to the Exhibits in her Motion to Dismiss relating to her case which arose from the January 6, 2011 reading of the U.S. Constitution by the House of Representatives.
When The Post & Email asked Cao why she shouted out “Except Obama! Except Obama!” during the reading that day, she said, “Everyone in Congress already knew and they said nothing,” referring to the letter mailed by Lucas Smith to each congressman along with a copy of the alleged Kenyan birth certificate.
At least Donald Trump has said more about the eligibility issue than any other person who is thinking about campaigning for the Presidency. He is being honest and he does deserve a HAND SHAKE. He has shown more patriotism than any other prominent figure. Hopefully, his statement will make some type of positive impact relating this critical issue. Consider, that if he did campaign for the Presidency and win, he would not be beholding to anyone….he would be his OWN MAN…..It would be a novelty for us all to experience, if this is the way it would develop. “In God We Trust.”

In 2009, James O’ Keefe and Hannah Giles released an undercover video investigation showing ACORN (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) employees giving the ‘couple’, dressed as a pimp and prostitute, guidance on tax evasion, child prostitution and human smuggling. The result: the Census Bureau immediately cut its ties– as they were scheduled to help conduct the 2010 Census– and Congress cut funding from the Housing and Urban Development Department. Ultimately, they were forced to shut down.
Many speculated ACORN would simply start up other organizations and conduct the same business under different names. Now, in Missouri, MORE ( Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment) is one such group.
Reboot Congress has the scoop:
MORE (Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment) and other leftists held meetings in 2010 to plan their strategy for squatting on properties in the St. Louis area. The video above introduces some of their leaders. A future video will outline MORE’s longterm strategy to acquire residential property through extralegal means like squatting.

Most people are analyzing U.S. action in Libya in a way that makes what President Obama is doing seem incomprehensible. If the President says Gadhafi must go and believes it is important enough to engage our military to achieve this objective, why would he wait two or three weeks before making a stand? If the President’s goal is to protect civilians in Libya, how can he be willing to let Gadhafi – the source of the humanitarian danger in Libya – remain in power after the operation ends?
“Pundits are puzzled because they assume President Obama is focused on Libya. But that assumption may be false.
“The only way to make the President’s behavior comprehensible is to recognize that he has a larger strategic goal than just the outcome of Libya. While the rest of the country is focused on Libya’s future, the President is focused on fundamentally changing America’s role and standing in the world. Libya, for him, is simply an occasion for undertaking a radical reformulation of 70 years of American foreign policy.

I fully endorse President Obama’s efforts to find a humorous angle to potentially the most serious Constitutional crisis facing the United States since the Civil War.
I intend to remain cheerful and ignore, downplay or ridicule any assertions that Barack Obama may not be eligible to be President. I will pretend that all “birthers” are crazy or racists and hope for a good outcome.
It is difficult for me to believe that there is a conspiracy so broad that it includes much of our senior political leadership and the main stream media. I find it incredulous that people who claim to love their country would perpetrate or acquiesce to such an outrageous fraud on the American people. No one could possibly crave power and privilege that much.
As of this writing, there appears to be no credible evidence that Barack Obama was actually born anywhere, but his existence makes me suspicious of that claim.
Homosexuals are a natural fit for the Godless, limited-population agenda of the NWO/Fascist/Marxist globalist elites—just run down a check list. Homosexuals are generally atheists—check. They are generally childless—check. Generally self-obsessed—check. Generally sexually promiscuous—check. Generally anti-family—check. Check, check, check, check, and check. “Ya’ll fit right in. Welcome aboard.” (Given the large number of gays in the government, and various leftist NGOs , I suppose the question of who’s recruiting who comes into play). (Link)
(And please, no emails about a homosexual cousin who works at a leper colony in Rwanda, and donated a kidney to feed the starving children in Bangladesh. I’m dealing with generalities here, not exceptions).
Edmund Bergler, M.D. and William Kroger, M.D. wrote in their book “Kinsey’s Myth of Female Sexuality: The Medical Facts” that “The homosexual is inwardly sick; in a convenient process of displacement he shifts the blame for his illness on the outer world. …He is the classical injustice collector; his constant complaint is that he has been ‘unjustly treated.’” Zygmund Dobbs notes that “These attitudes make the sexual deviate a natural candidate for collectivist tyrannies.” No lie.

When Glenn Beck tells you that an attack on our economic system has already begun, he’s not kidding. One of the major groups working towards “economic justice” is USUncut.org. Just launched in mid-February,USUncut is linked to the UKUncut group. Although billing itself as a spontaneous, grassroots “Tea Party for the Left”, USUncuts is also linked with SEIUand other98.com. You may recall that The Other 98 put together the “Celebrate the Dream” event in Washington last August in an effort to counteract Glenn Beck’s event.
The message they are promoting is meant to instigate protest from the public, using banks and big business as the target. Currently, their chosen targets are Bank of America, Verizon and FedEx. On the surface, who would disagree with their complaint that large corporations have all kinds of loopholes to avoid taxes? But be careful who you are backing and what their real intentions might be. Many of us have begged for a flat or fair tax for decades to no avail, but a fair and forthright approach doesn’t seem like what they have in mind at all.
Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich didn’t stop at blasting President Obama on his Libya war policy recently in a meeting of ultra-liberal Congressional Democrats. He practically invited Congress to consider an impeachment discussion of Obama.
Kucinich didn’t even stop there. He rammed the impeachment point home further in a follow-up interview in which he flatly said that the president went squarely against the Constitution in approving the Libya military action. So far, no other Democrat went quite that far. But several key Congressional Democrats including Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), John Conyers (D-Mich.), and Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), did openly grouse that Obama went too far in not getting approval of Congress for his action.
There is no dispute that presidents have a legal, constitutional and political responsibility to get approval from Congress when the issue is waging war. This obligation is clearly spelled out in the War Powers Act. And those who made that point were right to make it. But Kucinich and the handful of Democrats who ripped Obama about Libya certainly know that there is virtually no possibility that Obama will blatantly abuse that power as Bush did in Iraq and Afghanistan and commit American ground troops to combat in Libya. This would be a gross violation of the provisions of the Act.
Obama backed the Libyan no-fly zone because the United Nations Security Council by unanimous vote backed it. The House Foreign Affairs and Intelligence committees backed the action. More importantly, the Arab League requested that the United Nations impose a no-fly zone over Libya. And nearly every humanitarian group around has backed it.
But, most important he backed it because it’s the politically and morally right thing to do. Kucinich and others would have screamed the loudest if Obama had done nothing and Gaddafi slaughtered thousands in a blood-lust rampage against the rebel groups. In his case, and that of every other dictator that’s ever been under siege from their own people, it always leads to the slaughter of innocent women, children and elderly, under the guise of restoring order. If Obama hadn’t acted, he would have been even more loudly condemned as being weak, indecisive and a chronic ditherer when it comes to making tough decisions on foreign policy issues.
What are we to make of the fact that no one has taken credit for Wednesday’s bombing in Jerusalem?
Wednesday’s bombing was not a stand-alone event. It was part and parcel of the new Palestinian terror war that is just coming into view. As Israel considers how to contend with the emerging onslaught, it is important to notice how it differs from its predecessors.
On a military level, the tactics the Palestinians have so far adopted are an interesting blend of state-of-the-art missile attacks with old-fashioned knife and bomb-in-the-briefcase attacks. The diverse tactics demonstrate that this war is a combination of Iranian-proxy war and local terror pick-up cells. The attacks are also notable for their geographic dispersion and for the absence thus far of suicide attacks.
For the public, the new tactics are not interesting and the message they send is nothing new. With or without suicide bombers, Israelis understand that we are entering a new period of unremitting fear, where we understand that we are in danger no matter where we are. Whether we’re in bed asleep, or our way to work or school, or sitting down on a park bench or at a restaurant, whether we’re in Rishon Lezion, Sderot, Jerusalem, Itamar or Beersheba, we are in the Palestinians’ crosshairs. All of us are “settlers.” All of us are in danger.
The military innovations are important for IDF commanders who need to figure out how to answer the public’s demand for security. They will have to draw operational conclusions about the challenges this mix of tactics and strategic architecture poses.

A U.S. president has attacked another country, so it’s time for the scam artists to pull out their fake constitutional arguments in support of our dear leader. Not all of them are doing so, to be sure – in fact, it’s been rather a hoot to hear supporters of the Iraq war suddenly caterwauling about the Constitution’s restraints on the power of the president to initiate hostilities abroad. But I’m told that radio host Mark Levin criticized Ron Paul on his program the other day on the precise grounds that the congressman didn’t know what he was talking about when it came to war powers and the Constitution.
That means it’s time to lay out all the common claims, both constitutional and historical, advanced on behalf of presidential war powers, and refute them one by one.
“The president has the power to initiate hostilities without consulting Congress.”
Ever since the Korean War, Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution – which refers to the president as the “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States” – has been interpreted this way.
But what the framers actually meant…………………..
Republican pollster John McLaughlin agrees that Trump’s remarks may be part of a larger, and potentially effective, campaign strategy. “Just like Obama won the nomination as the most anti-Bush candidate, the Republican nomination is going to be won by the most anti-Obama candidate,” McLaughlin said. “He’s positioning himself to be the most aggressive candidate against Obama. If you want to win a primary that’s the way you win a primary.”

Irony is defined as “the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning.” The term doublespeak means “evasive, ambiguous language that is intended to deceive or confuse.”
Indeed, few leftist organizations in existence today can compete with the ACLU in terms of demonstrated hostility toward what the Declaration of Independence describes as “certain unalienable rights” with which Americans are “endowed by their Creator.”
Consider the doublespeak inherent throughout the “progressive” Goliath’s flowery self-representation:
“The ACLU is our nation’s guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.”
Now contrast that depiction with ACLU founder Roger Baldwin‘s candid vision:
Williams, a Republican from The Woodlands, held a news conference at the state Capitol on Thursday to announce the introduction of a Senate Resolution critical of the federal government’s record on securing the border.
“I’m tired of the rhetoric, inaction and escalating costs Texas is forced to bear because the federal government has failed to secure our border,” Williams said. “Our citizens have a right to be protected. Too many of our land and homeowners along the Texas-Mexico border live in fear of their lives and property.”
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano would likely dispute Williams’ analysis. She has said many times that the border is now much safer than in previous years, pointing out that the number of Border Patrol agents stationed on the southern border has gone up dramatically.
Williams, who participated in the Rio Grande Valley Partnership’s Valley Legislators Tour in January, said it is time for the federal government to fulfill its constitutional duty to secure the border. He also said Texas deserved to be reimbursed by Congress for the extra costs state and local governments incur “due to the federal government’s failure to secure the Texas-Mexico border.”
Williams said the “inability” of Washington, D.C., to secure the border and develop a comprehensive immigration reform policy has put “an unfair and unreasonable burden” on the state of Texas. He said Texas border communities in particular are struggling to keep their streets and neighborhoods safe from spillover gang violence.
In what seems to be a weekly, if not daily, number of protest marches around the globe recently, this weeks’ March 26th “March for the Alternative” is the latest effort to stir the pot from the global powers-that-be. As we have discovered in recent weeks and months, these movements and revolutions are given the appearance of the grassroot actions of frustrated citizens of the world, yet they always seem to come back to the same handful of people and groups.
The “March for the Alternative” is being well publicized by Movements.org (you know, the same people who work so well on revolution with Google and the State Dept.). This is how they introduce us to the latest:
On March 26th, more than 100,000 people will gather in London to ‘March for the Alternative.’ They’re protesting deep government cuts: slashed local budgets that mean cuts to libraries, child care, public transportation, public safety, and assistance for the elderly—combined with opening up the publicly-funded National Health Service to private companies at a loss of 50,000 jobs.
Shades of Wisconsin…it seems no one on the Left wants to cut a cent from anything. But that doesn’t make any sense in the current economy….does it? And it sounds way too close to the plans for created financial chaos announced this week by Glenn Beck and posted on The Blaze.
In the same way the radical progressives network with each other, their action sites always network extensively, too. We start with the “March for the Alternative” website, and although it is not easily found, there is a small logo from the sponsoring organization at the bottom of the page: TUC (Trades Union Congress)…

While Obama plays fast and lose trying to deal with his upset liberal base and congress about going to war with Libya, real abuses, violations and murders are happening all over Muslim countries. What will Obama do about those? I imagine, he will continue to ignore them like everyone else does. I am talking about abuses, human rights violations and murders that affect hundreds of millions of Muslim women through out the Middle East on a daily basis because of the use of the evil and racist Sharia law.
Just a few of the millions of rights violations regularly include: Get your puke bag ready. Remember Hena, the 14 year old girl who went out side her home at night to relieve herself in Bangladesh and was raped. She was sentenced to 100 lashes. She fell unconscious and died after 80. You guessed it…. Sharia law.
Then there was a 16 year old raped by a 20 year old at her village. She was ashamed and scared so she didn’t report it. Her plan didn’t work because she became pregnant and was exposed. She was sentenced to 101 lashes. This was carried out 8 months after her rape…..another gift of Sharia Law. This very same district reported 3 other cases who were lashed for illegal intercourse.
The blessings of Sharia continue…………A 45 year old woman was whipped 40 times for having intercourse with her stepson. The local imam decided this punishment which killed her. Then there was the 17 year old who was accused of having an affair. She was tortured by the village arbitration council until she confessed. Naturally after that she was whipped 101 times.

Pelosi, John Boehner, Modern Day Samson and Delilah? ~ “hey both knew how to disarm even the most powerful men and reduce them to a mere weak link in the chain of leadership”
Nancy Pelosi is no Delilah, but they had something in common, they both knew how to disarm even the most powerful men and reduce them to a mere weak link in the chain of leadership. This type of violation happens every day. Every time a man secretly glances over his shoulder to sneak a peek at a beautiful woman, or even when a man can relate to a woman like his long lost mom, that coddled him as a boy and created a need for acceptance through guilt, we become a nation of fools that falls to its knees from one simple kiss, or each affection.
Have you ever been hugged by a violator and, deep down in your gut, you knew that you were not supposed to submit to this crony but did not know what to do? So many people on this earth know the tragic, intimate truth about violators, but so many of us have been made to doubt the very core of who we are and what we have experienced. We have been lulled into a sleep that allows people like Nancy Pelosi and President Obama to rise to power. I have worked with troubled teenagers for thirty years, and the stories that I have heard about violators would make you want to jump off a cliff! These troubled teens have taught me so much about how we are formed as a people. Molesters, verbal and physical abusers, and the smiling, coddling, undermining, doubt-producing liars that roam our political system start out as so-called loving parents.
The politically correct system that has always been in place, has kept the truth about this type of abuse from rising out of the darkness of so many homes. It has produced the perfect violator; I like to call her, “The Nancy Pelosi Political Machine.” She is brilliant at hiding behind her nice face, the thoughtful political outfits that she wears and the almost meek and kindly qualities that she portrays. But I can’t be alone when I say that I see the mean, angry, controlling monster that lurks behind all those smiles. She has been well groomed and is the perfect pick for her job because she knows how to use this sociopolitical power.
Kucinich suggested during a Saturday conference call with anti-war Democrats that he thought impeachment could also be considered for Obama’s “unconstitutional” actions in Libya.
Paul’s spokeswoman Rachel Mills confirmed to The Daily Caller via email that Paul shares Kucinich’s point of view on the severity of the constitutional breach. “Yes, he thinks it is an impeachable offense,” Mills wrote.
“The President committed the U.S. to military invention without consulting Congress, in clear subversion of Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, which gives only Congress the power to declare war,” Kucinich wrote in a Tuesday letter to colleagues.
Paul released a video last week decrying the intervention in Libya as unconstitutional and saying that “the American people should be yelling and screaming about what the president is doing.”

Free-Market Analysis: Two recent news stories regarding government funding of the Internet have caught the attention of the blogosphere recently. The first has to do with a grant that the US is giving to the BBC (see above article excerpt) and the second involves a plea made by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (pictured above left) for more funds to combat the success of overseas news services.

While on the surface both stories have to do with strengthening the freedom of the Internet and supporting an expansive flow of unbiased information, the reality is likely, and unfortunately, diametrically opposed to what it is being said. These two stories, taken together, mark yet another milestone in the determination of the Anglo-American elites to REDUCE (not expand) the reach of the Internet and to push back against the influence of the blogosphere and the alternative news that it provides.
One sees these unmistakable trends in many ways. There is for instance the desperation with which the Anglosphere‘s mainstream media is attacking yet again the alternative news media via pay walls and proprietary news-distribution formats. USA Today just announced yet another reconfiguration of one of America’s largest newspapers. Once a success story, USA Today has lost considerable circulation and revenues…………………..
Obama doesn’t tell you what he’s thinking. He keeps his motives to himself. Cherished long-term ideological goals are advanced as pragmatic fixes to concrete problems in the present. Now we’re seeing the familiar domestic pattern in foreign policy as well.
Few Americans realize that Obama has had a longstanding interest in multilateral efforts to combat war crimes and genocide. Obama would like to see a more constraining international legal regime on war crimes, even at the cost of national sovereignty, not to mention the blood and treasure of the countries doing the enforcing. In general, Obama has said little about his larger foreign policy goals.
…In 2005, Obama contacted Power after reading her book on genocide. There followed a long conversation, after which Power left Harvard to work for Obama, quic‘kly emerging as his senior foreign policy advisor.
…Most of the commentary on Libya has focused on the tension between Obama’s apparent desire to displaceQaddafi and his reluctance to admit to it. But the chief reason for this intervention is the one that’s staring us in the face. Obama dithered when it was simply a matter of replacing Qaddafi, yet quickly acted when slaughter in Benghazi became the issue. What Samantha Power and her supporters want is to solidify the principle of “responsibility to protect” in international law. That requires a “pure” case of intervention on humanitarian grounds. Power’s agenda would explain why Obama acted when he acted, and why the public rationale for action has not included regime change.
Yet Obama has so far been reluctant to fully explain any of this to either Congress or the American public, perhaps because he realizes that the ideological basis of his actions would not be popular if openly admitted.
