Catholic Priest calling for "snuffing out" gun store owner?

Say it isn't so, Joe! From David at War on Guns: ~~~~ By now, you've probably heard of the recording of "moral authority" "Father" Michael Pfleger calling for John "R-i-g-g-i-o", the owner of a Chuck's Gun Shop (along with "legislators" who don't support citizen disarmament) to be "snuffed out." ~~~~ If the Archbishop in LA isn't giving sanctuary to illegal aliens from Mexico, a priest, Father Michael Pfleger, is busy using his 501(c)(3) to call for "snuffing out" a local gun dealer. Find the post with plenty of links at War on Guns, Snuff out Mike Pfleger. And if the post makes you angry enough, one of the commenters gave a good link to the esteemed Father's Archbishop: His Eminence, Cardinal Francis Eugene George, Archbishop of the Diocese of Chicago -- who's office can be contacted here: I feel more and more that we are really living in tenuous times.

Iraqi Refugees - more to enter US

Holy Gawd! If we aren't getting enough immigrants - illegals, soon to be legals - we'll just start a few wars and then import the refugees. Have we lost our freaking minds? There is only one viable answer - YES! Of course, this case is arguably different in that we put some of these people at further risk. The following is from the Washington Times as gathered from the Associated Press: U.S. opens door wider for Iraqi refugees, May 31, 2007.
The United States will soon begin admitting a bigger trickle of the more than 2 million refugees who have fled Iraq, acknowledging for the first time that Iraq may never be safe for some who have helped the U.S. there. After months of delays, the Bush administration has finalized new guidelines to screen Iraqi refugees, including those seeking asylum because helping Americans has put them at huge risk. More than 2 million people have left Iraq, but Washington has balked at allowing them into the United States for security reasons. Since the war began in 2003, fewer than 800 Iraqi refugees have been admitted into the United States. Now, under enhanced screening measures aimed at weeding out potential terrorists -- announced this week by the Department of Homeland Security -- the administration plans to allow nearly 7,000 Iraqis to resettle in the United States by the end of September. An initial group of 59, including former U.S. government employees and their families, should arrive in the coming weeks, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said.
A good question for Chertoff is how many feet of the border fence between the US and Mexico have been built? I mean if the concern is "national security." His answer is none, zero, zip, nada. And we expect folks like Chertoff and others to "protect" us and our sovereignty. I'm telling you, it makes a lady want to swear "like a sailor." The only way to keep our sanity is to have more children, home school these children, and muster up the courage to march in the streets against the "amnesty" bill. Can't, you say? No, we're too busy working to pay for all the benefits the refugees and illegals are getting. That Chertoff would even be able to speak the words, "we also must be mindful of the security risks," when our borders are OPEN is remarkable if not duplicitous.
As with incoming refugees from other countries, Iraqis accepted for resettlement in the U.S. will be given assistance from both government and private aid agencies, including language and job training in the communities that will be their new homes, officials said. "America's tradition of welcoming international refugees and responding to humanitarian emergencies is unrivaled," Mr. Chertoff said. "Yet we also must be mindful of the security risks associated with admitting refugees from war-torn countries -- especially countries infiltrated by large numbers of terrorists." Homeland Security officials would not discuss what the enhanced process entails, but several people familiar with the program said it includes additional interviews, biometric screening and cross-checks against employer databases, none of which is necessarily required for non-Iraqi refugees. The 59 Iraqis who will arrive soon are among a group of more than 700 considered to be the most vulnerable and for whom resettlement interviews already have been conducted, the department said. They include "persons whose lives may be in jeopardy because they worked for coalition forces," it said, without giving specific numbers of former U.S. employees. Refugee advocates yesterday praised the announcement but lamented that many desperate Iraqis have been languishing in camps in other Middle Eastern countries. "Obviously, DHS has a responsibility to make sure that everybody who comes into the country is going to be a good citizen ... but they also realize that the country has a responsibility to these Iraqis," said Kenneth Bacon of Refugees International. The Senate and House earlier this month passed legislation allowing a tenfold increase in special immigrant visas for Iraqis and Afghans who worked as translators and interpreters for U.S. forces.
And why is the UN involved in identifying exactly who will be admitted into the United States? Have we really lost our sovereignty entirely? Are we simply chattel for the UN? Are the nations of the UN our new masters? We fought a revolution; we developed a nation. It is so sad to see it being given away to the corruption and decay, the vile breath, of the UN. Not to mention to Mexico.
As of May 18, the United Nations had identified 4,692 Iraqi refugees at camps in Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Egypt for possible resettlement in the United States. Officials said they expect that number to rise to about 7,000 by Sept. 30 and the U.S. hopes to admit as many as possible. "We fully intend and expect to be able to handle 7,000 referrals," deputy State Department spokesman Tom Casey said. "This is very good news that this has now been arranged."
So, how well are things going in Iraq when we have to take in refugees whose lives are now at risk for helping the coalition forces? I'm not naive. I know there are risks to those who collaborate with coalition forces but why import refugees here? And are they any safer here with the influx of Middle Eastern and Indonesian illegals - certainly terrorists among them - coming across our borders with the Mexicans? Were not a family of Coptic Christians found and murdered in New Jersey several years ago? If our government is not serious about stopping the illegal immigration that is diluting our nation's resources, how serious is that government about protecting Iraqis who have worked as interpreters for our forces in Iraq? I know of a man who was captured as a youth in Japan during WWII. He was taken to North Africa for the Africa Campaign. He became fluent in English and as a grown man worked as an interpreter for American forces in Japan. He did not have to leave his native home to be protected from other Japanese. He went on to build a flourishing business in the martial arts and continued as an interpreter.

Black-on-Mexican Crime, can this be true?

The following is a true story as told to me by a Postal Mail Carrier who delivers mail in what is now known as "Little Mexico." In a city next to my home town, a section of low-to-moderate rent apartments/townhouses used to be a black neighborhood. The Mexicans moved in and the area was hit by "black flight" as the blacks moved out. Seems blacks don't much like Mexicans - a bit of racism perhaps. [This "black flight" seems to be happening wherever the Mexicans move in.] Now, the area is infested with black-on-Mexican crime. Yes, that's right, Virginia. Black Americans acting like racists? Who would have thought? But then, perhaps it is not racism at all but just good old opportunism, going after the underdog so to speak. Rumor has it that the Mexican men don't have bank accounts - could be that they are illegal or just don't like the paperwork or most probably haven't been to the Mexican Consulate on the nearest corner - much like your local 7-11 - to get a consulate card. Or just like having their money on them. At any rate, when they are paid for an week of labor working primarily in construction in the area, they get paid in cash or they cash their checks (I'm betting on the former) and have wads of money in their pockets. The enterprising black youth who once lived in the housing area now frequent the area on Friday nights to do what? Well, rob the Mexicans. Can you believe it? And my friends in the black community tell me that they are all in favor of the "browning" of America. Well, of course, if enterprising black youth of the "criminal element" variety, working or not, have found another "cash cow" from which to milk money earned by the labor of someone else, who can blame them as that seems to be the way of all who eat at the trough as long as it is at the expense of others. Well, the police are all in a dither trying to protect the illegals from being robbed. How about deporting the illegals and fining the folks who hire them? We pay money in property taxes to have the police "protecting" us. It would be interesting to know how much our resources are being drained while the police protect the illegals. Remember Senate Bill 1348 - the path to citizenship for 20,000,000 plus all their extended family which are not counted in the 20,000,000. Note to American blacks - when this bill passes, you will continue to see a loss of clout in ways too numerous to count. No one can help the black community unless the black community helps itself and calls their congressmen and senators, and demand that this bill be voted down. [Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 sponsored by Harry Reid of Nevada and co-sponsored by Teddy Kennedy, Patrick Leahy, Robert Menendez, and Ken Salazar.]

Borders of America - Going, going, gone!

Well, the Senate of the United States is on holiday for the rest of this week. When they return, the greatest deliberative body on earth - gag me with a spoon - will resume their "work" on the destruction of our American culture and of our national sovereignty with the aid of the Bush Administration. Instead of Mr. Reagan's 3,000,000 illegals who received amnesty, the estimated number of illegals here now is between 12 to 20,000,000. This of course does not count the extended family members who will be awared citizenship and social security medical as well as other benefits. The Senate Bill is number 1348 with a bunch of amendments. [Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 sponsored by Harry Reid of Nevada and co-sponsored by Teddy Kennedy, Patrick Leahy, Robert Menendez, and Ken Salazar.] I have not read it as it stands now but I can guess that the passage does not bode well for law-abiding American citizens nor for their children looking for entry-level jobs at WalMart, Burger King, or elsewhere. I wonder that we are not marching on Washington, D.C. to demonstrate our disapproval of the dilution of American citizenship for law-abiding current American citizens. I wonder as well when we will have had enough of "affirmative action". Next week we will see how the Senate goes and how little they regard the sanctity of our nation's sovereignty. Who will sell us and our American culture to the lowest bidder? We know the answer and it is most unpleasant to contemplate.

Apartheid in 21st Century America - The greatest betrayal of all

As I have written in many ways since beginning Conservative Beach Girl on July 4, 2006, 230 years since our Independence Day, our declaration of our independence from England on July 4, 1776, I sense that our nation is in the throes of monumental change. And this change is not necessarily for the better. What I see is growing apartheid in America - religious apartheid, reverse apartheid, political apartheid - things we have struggled with and were well on our way to over-coming. Many American whites along with well-meaning American blacks has been laboring for decades to bring about racial equality in America but forces are aligned within our nation today to institute "apartheid" and are being somewhat successful. The term "apartheid" is defined as "the state of being separate; the policy of strict racial segregation and political and economic discrimination against non-whites as practiced in South Africa." I am not sure the definition cannot be applied today in America as a growing trend against white Americans (including Hispanic white and non-Hispanic white) and against all Americans of Judeo-Christian heritage and beliefs. But in America, "apartheid" is far more subtle, at least for now. We are moving into what I have coined as Apartheid in 21st Century America, an apartheid every bit as virulent and despicable as the apartheid of South Africa of the 1960s. I must attribute some of my thinking to the Courtney Series by Wilbur Smith on South Africa. It is through reading his books in this series that I am seeing similarities - subtle for now but not any less visible - between the plight of South African blacks of that era eerily similar to the governmental encroachment of our individual freedoms and liberties. The ways are more subtle in some respects and couched in terms such as "affirmative action" which is institutionalized racism, "political correctness" which is censorship, "multiculturalism" which denigrates Western culture and deems it morally equivalent or inferior to the cultures of third world nations and tribalism, "national security" which couches everything in an aura of "selective secrecy", and now we are moving into "religious" apartheid in which Islam and Muslims are being given concessions based on so-called "religious" grounds in favor of Islam over Judeo-Christian religions that do not seek to overthrow our culture but are the very fabric of that culture. With the maneuvering of the Democrat-controlled Senate with the help of Arlen Spector of Magic Bullet fame; John - I never met an illegal lawbreaker I don't want to give citizen ship to - McCain; hajib-wearing Nancy Pelosi of the House; the Senators such as Lindsey - can't we all just get along - Graham of South Carolina; and the ultra-liberal (on the issue of illegal immigrants) administration, the combined coalition - working in concert and over many years of intentionally no border control - will at last reach their goal: the ending of our national sovereignty, the dilution of the value of American citizenship, and the depression of wages for all currently legal American citizens regardless of ethnicity. You see, the minimum wage you want so badly won't matter much when entry level jobs are cut or given to illegals - soon to be rewarded for their criminal behavior. Here are a few of the issues we citizens need to address and we need to get our representatives to listen to our voices, not the voices of the ACLU and others: - The marginalization or neutralization of American blacks in the political realm; - Amnesty and Guest Worker Programs; - The increase in a Muslim population with rising agreement of 26% of the young people that suicide bombings are justified; - Islamist groups such as Jamaat being allowed to establish radical Islamist communes throughout the United States - thirty I believe; - The use of tax dollars to establish segregationist schools for Mexican students; - Mosques, madrasses and other Islamic centers having free access to develop and to build Islamic communities in the United States usually by Saudi funds; - The establishment of nearly a Palestinian-like border between the US and Mexico where drug lords fight for control of our border and for the continued flow of enormous amounts of drugs coming from Columbia and other nations - regions along our border a "no man's lands"; and, - the seeming elevation of Islam over other religions in America. The coalition are grasping for the culmination of their plans. Oh, the America you see, the anti-American hate-filled news you see will not be altered dramatically but overtime the change will occur, subtly increasing with more boldness as forces aligned to over-throw the nation's sovereignty and cohesion as "One nation under God" gain success upon success from the cross at Mt. Soledad to Muslim prayer rooms at Dell for contract workers. Stopping the perversion of our government. The American people - legal, law-abiding citizens are the only ones who can stop the perversion of our government, the overwhelming demographic changes which will forever and always but the American black minority once again on the back of the bus. American citizens of Hispanic ancestry will see their hard-earned wages plummet as hoards of illegals - soon institutionalized as "guest workers" become the new "slave class" and take the jobs of Americans and depress wages for all of us. What can we do in a "democratic republic'? Vote - that is all we have and, of course, call our representatives many of whom just spit in our face and laugh. Even our President won't listen to 77% of all Americans. Political Isolation of American blacks. With the increase of Latinos and Latino extended families of the current illegal immigrants, the voting power or block of American blacks - except for scattered local elections - will be diminished on a national level and American black leaders complicit in neutralizing the black vote will soon see themselves removed from public office - the representation of American blacks dwindling proportionately (if you believe as I don't - that a person can only be represented by a person of his/her skin color). No more seeking of the black vote. Why ever should an American whites seek votes on the national level from a group of people who vote 98% for Democrats, the very ones selling American blacks out as they have been doing since the Immigration Act of 1965 (thank you, Teddy Kennedy). Thanks to the great black enslaver, LBJ with his Great Society to move American blacks into "townships" every bit as stifling as those in South Africa and his plan to destroy the black family which he succeeded in doing in large measure - hence the appalling increase in the abortions and the equally appalling removal of the black men who sired the children from the home. Slavery itself could not have created a greater dependency of a portion of our society upon the shackles associated with government handouts. For this sentiment, I am called a racist. So be it if that means a racist (unlike the members of La Raza) is one who sees the gleam of promise go from bright to dull over the course of a few years. Not all American blacks have fallen for the promise of government "subsistance" but all one has to see is the documentary of the life and death of black youth near the Governor's mansion in Little Rock, Arkansas to see the dashing of hope brought about through programs who even the solid Democrat Senator Daniel Moynihan ridiculed as being destructive to American blacks. The growing political isolation of American blacks, the increasing numbers of "guest workers" and the current illegals against whom these black youth will be forced to compete for jobs will not lessen the impact of Shelby Steele's book, A Dream Deferred. The title could well be changed to A Dream Denied. [I have not mentioned white youth here because they are being moved off the table; they have white skin and, in some cases, even their applications are futile attempts to seek employment.] While Martin Luther King, Jr. may have dreamed of a land where his children would be accepted by the "content of their character and not by the color of their skin," his dream has been buried with his body along with the earth displaced by the backhoe that dug his grave. Institutionalized Discrimination - Affirmative Action: The Truth laid bear. Affirmative action is institutionalized racism upheld and enforced by the federal government; it is anit-American and violates our "equal protection" guaranteed by the US Constitution.

Islam vs the Light of Truth by Najistani

Just this morning, Najistani left a comment at my post, From Britain with biting satire and humor - The Trouble with Islam. I have posted Najistani's comment in full with only a few corrections. The comments reflect several of the issues with Islam and its leaders who do believe the tea leaves that their time is now. Not only the tea leaves tell them this but also the willingness of most if not all leaders/administrations of Western nations that these national leaders are ready and willing to expose their soft under-bellies and are prepared to sacrifice their people and their way of life to the lethal strike of subjugations and servitude. Keep in mind that your outward daily life such as rearing your children, going to work, reading your papers, watching your television - your big-screen plasma TV - may not change, but your freedoms will as they have been changing subtly since September 11, 2001, 9/11. And they have been - now we are herded like cattle, poked and prodded, soon we'll have our "papers" to show for any reason when the Real ID comes into effect (for the law-abiding - it is never the criminal who must worry about compliance with any law), soon we'll have 12 - 20 million new "legal residents" thanks to the bastards in our government and we'll have extended Mexico's border to Kansas City when the NAFTA super highway is opened - check SPP. We are submitting to the dictates of Shari'a Law as quickly as we can - foot-washing stations to name only one. Dell has submitted to Muslims who work for a contracting company Dell uses. Search Dell and capitulation to Islam. CAIR is proud of this submission. I read once that when all of Europe is Islamic, the fall of America will be but a poof of air. Is that going to be the case? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ But now, najistani said... Continued criticism and ridicule of Islam and its perverted founder are essential if we are ever going to eradicate this loathsome meme, or at least reduce it to manageable proportions. Unlike real religions, Islam is an all-or-nothing cult, there is no room for individual conscience or interpretation, or for give and take with other religions (except when we give and they take). A Muslim MUST believe that the entire Koran is the literal word of God, commanding believers how to behave (including such obsessive-compulsive trivialities as how to wipe your butt, as well as the more disturbing instructions to subjugate and kill unbelievers ). Not only that, but a Muslim MUST believe that God entrusted His final message to mankind (Mohammed being the 'seal of the prophets') into the care of a violent, sadistic bandit with a depraved lust for little girls. But, if the Koran is not the word of the creator of the universe then what is it? The ravings of a madman? A scam? A cynical and destructive exercise in memetic engineering ? A rapist's, extortionist's and pedophile's charter? The whole festering, stinking structure of Islam is based firstly on the trustworthiness of a pedophile (and pedophiles are notoriously deceitful confidence tricksters both to children and often also to their gullible parents). Secondly it is based upon the supposed divine origin of a hate-manual consisting of Jewish and Christian scriptures which have been misunderstood, mangled and corrupted and then liberally mixed with Mohammed's venomous rantings. The koran is full of internal inconsistencies and irrationality, including some very bizarre cosmology. So if Islam is a barbarous, irrational load of vomit spewed up by an ignorant vicious pervert, why has it lasted to the present day? The answer is that Islam produces and justifies a self-perpetuating totalitarian power-structure - a power-structure that extends from the level of the oppressive and often murderous Muslim family all the way up to national politics, where power rests in the hands of whichever Mullahs can rouse the biggest mobs of psychopathic fanatics. In order to maintain this power structure, the the cult must be placed beyond criticism. In practice this requires that all rational examination of the Koran and the 'Prophet' be stifled. This has been done very effectively in Muslim countries where insulting the 'Prophet' or desecrating the Koran carries a death sentence. The Muslims are now trying to place their cult beyond criticism in the West by a variety of means such as: - Murder (eg Theo van Gogh) - Threats of murder (eg Salman Rushie) - Riots (Motoons) - Multiculturalism (all cultures are equally valid no matter how savage, belligerent, destructive or irrational) - Post-colonial guilt (Poor muslim victims! We mustn't upset them or hurt their feelings any further) - Infiltration and intimidation of universities. - Use of petrodollars to buy media and bribe academic institutions. - Weasel words such as 'Islamophobia' and 'Respect'. Anyone who does not respect Islam is an Islamophobe, which by clever manipulation has come to be synonymous with 'racist bigot'. So nowadays the PC dhimmis often speak of 'anti-Islamic racism' or 'anti-Muslim racism', ignoring the obvious fact that being a Muslim is not genetically determined, but results from being infected with a parasitic mind-virus (meme) and brainwashed by obsessive-compulsive rituals from an early age. We kaffirs must keep up the attacks on all Islam's weak points. Like a vampire, Islam feeds on blood and abhors the sign of the cross. Like a vampire it exults in death and flourishes in the darkness of ignorance. However it cannot withstand the light of truth. Shine enough daylight on Islam and and like a vampire it will collapse into a pile of 1400 year old dust. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I do not know who Najistani is but the words ring true, especially when one sees the laws that CAIR is supporting or opposing - laws written by some of our very own Congressional elected representatives who are sworn to uphold the US Constitution which stresses above all else - the equal protection clause, freedom of speech, and all the rest with which you are familiar. The Democrats in power now are fostering and nurturing the death of the John Doe Motion, the institution of the Fairness Doctrine which would effectively silence all talk radio and certainly cause grief to many editorial writers. We must be informed and we must be aware. America is under attack from several sources and although weakly, my recent post - War to overthrow America - raging now! is one more attempt to point out that the average American and his way of life are on the cusp of being altered irreversibly without great strife. Of course, the eventual subjugation will be outrageous as well. It seems as though our government, the Mexican government, groups such as La Raza, and certainly Saudi Arabia and CAIR are locked in a race for who will gain control first: Mexico or Saudi Arabia. The trick is that they both have tied our freedoms up in such knots that we don't even recognize what is happening, it is all so "reasonable" you know. But Najistani asks a good question, "Can Islam stand the light of day, the light of scrutiny and the light of truth?" Certainly Christians and Jews have seen their religions ridiculed and torn to shreds, yet they still stand without repressive laws. Curious, isn't it? Ever vigilant! Ever free!

War to overthrow America - raging now!

The war to overthrow America is raging now! Yes, Virginia, in your own backyard or frontyard. But is raging and well into its middle stages - and no one told us or invited us, American citizens - to the battle. Looking at my post, Waco Rules vs. Romanian Rules: a look at the abuse of government power, gives you the lead-in to what I see as the war to overthrow America, to overthrow the United States of America. But the abuse of government power goes farther than America as we know. Aside from the fact that our own government is working mightily to destroy the cohesion of our nation and to end our national sovereignty, both Mexico and Saudi Arabia are fighting for a much bigger prize - the take-over of the United States of America. Of course, Saudi Arabia has got a bigger fish to fry in "taking over the world" or most of it which I'll get to in a moment. Mexico and the overthrow of America, these writers and links may lead you to more links, especially Outraged On the issue of national sovereignty, we have Michelle Malkin's, The bigger "F**k you!" [H/T to Ronbosoldier at American Republic: "F**k you," says President Bush! in The Freedom Fighter's Journal.] For more on the destruction of America, see Outraged with their H/T to Tim Donnelly for his news story, Mobile consulate to offer ID cards to Mexican nationals living in Lowcountry with the help of a Mobile Mexican Consulate much like a Mobile Library but in this one you don't get to check out books, you get documentation papers, all sorts of ID so that you can go about establishing yourself in the US. And then there is Brian Darling's piece, Bordering on Insantiy regarding the sellout on immigration and the sellout of this nation by Putin - whoops, I mean - Bush, McCain, and Ted Kennedy aided by these equally fine supporters of American sovereignty, Senator Arlene "The Magic Bullet" Specter, R-PA and poor, misguided Senator Jon Kyl, R-Arizona. [And these Republicans don't deserve to be kicked out.] No wonder Bush supported Specter against the up and coming Republican rival to Specter's last campaign - it wasn't abortion, it was AMNESTY. Now we turn to Saudia Arabia. Saudi Arabia and the establishment of the Islamic Republic of North America - after the NAFTA highway is finished and Mexico, Canada, and America are no more. These links - although I am loath to give them out - do give you information about the extent of the spread of Islam throughout the United States and the World: Islam - Find a Mosque Directory of Arabic Christian Churches Islamic Finder Right now, at this moment, a war is being waged on our soil for the overthrow of the American government - waged by Islamist Saudi Arabia and Mexico, aided and supported by our current administration and our Congress - both, by God, houses. I could shake my tiny fist and in the last act of defiance shout, "God damn you all!" Well, I've done that in other posts. What I want you to do, for me and for us, is to look at the distractions that are taking our attention away from the absolute war for our nation: the culture war, the war in Iraq - worthy of our efforts, I'm sure but not at the expense of our own nation's capitulation right here at home. Also, please take the time to visit one of the Islamic Mosque Finders and search first in your locality for mosques, schools - they may or may not be identified as Wahhabi - then pick a nation and see how Saudi Arabia is influencing world politics, funding organizations such as CAIR in America, and establishing Muslim communities throughout all of South America, Central America, and Latin America. Western Civilization is in a battle for its life and we don't even seem to know it. Think about the "integrated plant operations" I mentioned in Waco Rules vs. Romanian Rules: a look at the abuse of government power and when you look at the news or read the news, take a second and really ponder the "integrated operations" that are being waged against us, me and you. When do we have to start taking David Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh seriously? It is never too late but the time is shortening. Guest Editorial: "Resistance is futile": Waco Rules vs. Romanian Rules Many bloggers and newspaper columnists/editorial writers have been shouting the same things on their various subjects. I only ask that you see it all in a much bigger light. It is said that the biggest feat Satan pulled off was to convince the world that he does not exist. Perhaps the biggest feat of the "modern-day" leaders of Islam have pulled off is to convince the world that Islam is a religion.

Waco Rules vs. Romanian Rules: a look at the abuse of government power

David Codrea of War on Guns has just published a masterful article by Mike Vanderboegh entitled Guest Editorial: "Resistance is Futile": Waco Rules vs. Romanian Rules. The post is a must read and it deals specifically with the ways "armed" resistance have been altered since the era of the Clintons. It is especially important with the potential advent of a Hill Clinton in the White House. Whereas Bill Clinton is savvy enough to back down or use dis-information to take a step back, Hill Clinton does not have that intuitive savvy. So, could there be a "bigger" Waco if any of us get out of line under her spiked heel? David focuses his blog on the important aspects of the War on Guns. I tend to jump around a bit and delve into the spread of Islam and the invasion from Mexico with a few jabs here and there at politicians which would hardly be worth the trouble except that they do control our lives more every day. I also tend to see things in an "integrated plant operations" sort of way. Within the nuclear electricity generating area, 80 or more systems make up the construction of a nuclear power plant. There are engineers and technicians and procedures for each and every system independently but - to me the most interesting part is the field of the nuclear operations department because they work with "integrated plant operations" - how these systems work to support each other and the operation of the nuclear power plant. While some folks may be specialists of a given system, nuclear operators are "masters of the entire system." Mike Vanderboegh's article was so impressive to me because it got me to thinking of the over-all "war to overthrow" the United States of America and is going on violently in some areas and more cunningly in others but make no mistake there is a war going on for America, especially, and for the world generally.

Saudi Arabia - spreading radical Islam throughout the world

Saudi Arabia The Central Bank to finance the spread of Islam. In their own way then, the Saudis are spreading the Islamic colonization of the West, the peppering of the landscape with mosques and schools throughout the world. Many of the most virulent voices are no doubt supported by Saudi princes with dollars from the sale of oil. To find the encroachment of Islam into your region see About Islam and as I did with just a click of the mouse, you can learn how many mosques are within driving distance from your home - wherever you are in the world. I was surprised to see the number in Mexico and in South America. The following article is copied here in its entirety. Perhaps it will give you an awareness of the influence Saudi money is having upon the political scheme of things in your region and you may become aware of how pervasive Islam is becoming.
'Billions Spent by Saudi Royal Family to Spread Islam to Every Corner of the Earth' The March 1, 2002 edition of the Saudi government English weekly Ain Al-Yaqeen extensively detailed the Saudi royal family's efforts to spread Islam throughout the world. The following are excerpts taken from the article: ".The determination of the Kingdom to support Islam and Islamic institutions to the best of its ability was evident from the formation of the Kingdom by King Abdul Aziz but it was only when oil revenues began to generate real wealth that the Kingdom could fulfil its ambitions of spreading the word of Islam to every corner of the world, of assisting Muslim countries less well endowed economically and of alleviating the suffering of Muslim minorities wherever they might live." "When King Fahd gave his support, either personally or through his government, to these institutions, it was also part of his purpose to challenge and expose the caricature of Islam, which is widely promoted by sections of the Western media. The voice of Islam and Arab culture is stronger now than it has been for many decades and certainly far stronger than it would have been without King Fahd's contribution, but the bias against Islam, the tendency, in some quarters, to identify Islam with fanaticism or even terrorism persists and has not been completely erased from the popular mind in the West." "The cost of King Fahd's efforts in this field has been astronomical, amounting to many billions of Saudi Riyals. In terms of Islamic institutions, the result is some 210 Islamic centres wholly or partly financed by Saudi Arabia, more than 1,500 mosques and 202 colleges and almost 2,000 schools for educating Muslim children in non-Islamic countries ! in Europe, North and South America, Australia and Asia. All over the world the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has supported and contributed in the establishment of mosques and Islamic centres." "The Kingdom has established more than 1,359 mosques abroad at a cost of SR 820 million. King Fahd also established a number of scholarships and academic chairs in foreign prominent universities and colleges." "In addition to establishing and contributing in the establishing of mosques and Islamic centres, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Fahd Ibn Abd Al-Aziz Al Saud, in the course of his reign, has overseen the establishment of a number of academic chairs in some of the most respected universities in the developed world. In setting up these prestigious chairs, the Kingdom has pursued a number of objectives. They are further evidence of King Fahd's determination to encourage and enhance communications between Islamic culture and other cultures; to encourage understand! ing of the true nature of Islam by explaining clearly Muslim beliefs and by correcting common misconceptions and misrepresentations; and to show that Islam embraces knowledge with enthusiasm." "With his lifelong commitment to education as the key to unlocking the potential of the individual, it is not surprising that King Fahd Ibn Abd Al-Aziz initiated a program to establish Islamic academies in some of the major capitals of the world. These academies were conceived in order to provide Muslim children abroad with the opportunity to attend an institution of academic excellence which could reinforce their commitment to their culture, religion and language while at the same time opening constructive dialogue with the societies in which they lived." "Outside the Arab Islamic world there is a number of Islamic research institutes supported by the Kingdom; amongst these are the American University of Colorado, the American University in Washington, the Arab World Institute, Paris, France which receives considerable Saudi contribution to its annual budget, the Duke University, North Carolina, the Howard University, Washington, the Institute of the History of Arab and Islamic Science, Frankfurt, Germany, the John Hopkins University, Maryland, the Middle East Institute, in Washington, the Shaw University, in North Carolina, and the Syracuse University, in New York." [my comment - and this buys influence into our culture and beyond.] "In addition to financing Islamic academic institutions and Islamic centres and mosques around the world, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has always been a leading member of international Islamic organisations. Throughout King Fahd's reign, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has played an active role in all these organisations, using its inf! luence to nurture and encourage unity in the Islamic world amongst which the Organisation of the Islamic Conference and the World Assembly of Muslim Youth. In addition the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has played a role in nurturing Islamic unity through the Muslim World League, based in the Holy City of Makkah Al Mukkaramah."
Searches can be done on "Saudi Arabia funding CAIR" and also see Policy Watch, Peace Watch. I am not familiar with the latter but it appears to be an informative site. And also, Saudi Arabia's export of Radical Islam. The export of Radical Islam around the world - for Americans at least generally - has been and is being implemented against the backdrop of the invasion from Mexico which consumes a great deal of our attention as it should. We just need to be aware that foot-washing stations and the capitulation of univeristy administrators to give Muslims preferencial treatment that other religions do not receive are all part of a concerted plan. The axiom in business is "plan your work and work your plan." The Saudis are implementing their plan. The Saudis cannot take on Western nations militarily so they "fight" us for control of our nations and the eradication of our way of life through surrogates armed with bombs or lawsuits. Please reflect that Saudi Arabia is spreading Wahhabism - reportedly the most virulent sect within Islam which means us no good will at all.

From Britain with biting wit and satire - The Trouble with Islam

Now, I didn't make that up - The Trouble with Islam is a "film" found at The Trouble with Islam. I had difficulty with the video but finding the site is worth its weight in gold. My computer or the programs I have made it difficult to watch with the stopping and starting for "buffering" et al but it is worth the time it takes to watch. And watch it quick you must. I must say the gentleman is a "cheeky" fellow from a brief review of the titles to his videos and must warn you that he tosses fun and ridicule at each and everyone of us, no one is safe from his barbs and jabs. But this humor, this seeing the funny side of ourselves and our idiosyncracies is one attribute that has made America for one a great nation. We unfailingly make fun of the Irish, the Brits, the blue-bloods among us, our Founding Fathers even do not escape our humor; and when we were allowed in the days of national unity before the "apartheid" of diversity and political correctness set in, we made jolly good of ourselves and each other - before we developed thin skins, skins so thin as to tear at even the hint of - gasp - insult. Before we were made of sterner stuff when we had humor as well as gentility, ie, manners. So, enjoy the satirist and know that no one escapes his sharp and biting tongue... No need to agree with him; just enjoy. A tad of humility never hurt any great nation or its people. I tried to write down some of the audio, transcribe it as it were because of all of the starts and stops. It begins like this, "...ironic to me that the very people who have made no attempt to think for themselves are demanding respect for their ideas...But because we live in a liberal country and have certain double standards to maintain any mention or criticism of Islam or Muslims is called islamophobia, a dishonest word...when the truth is that Islam has a chip on its shoulder the size of a mosque..." When speaking of the bombings and blowing people up, the great writer in the video says, "yet curiously you never hear about any of these enthusiastic clerics blowing themselves up for the glory of God - they are keen to delegate that particular honor despite the guarantee of all those lucious virgins waiting there in heaven..." "But," the writer ends, "I don't want be too harsh on Islam for two reasons:..." I'll leave it to you to visit the site and enjoy the presentation. Watch it quick. One can never tell how long it will be allowed; we Western cultures do have those "double standards" to uphold. Peace be upon you... Goodnight and have a great Sunday. Ever vigilant! Ever free!

From Mitts Verige/Sweden: Pax Europe to show solidarity on September 11, 2007

All across Europe, from Sweden, to Denmark, Italy, France, Germany, Brussels, Great Britian, and more - folks are planning demonstrations: Stor anti-islam demonstration den 11 September 2007. [forgive me as I surely messed up the title of the post.] September 11, 2007 marks six years since fanatical Islamic terrorists flew airplanes into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and into a field in PA - Flight 93. In America we seem to have fallen into a state of lethargy. As some say, there is no Islamist threat. Who knows how many mosques in America have imams spewing hatred for our nation. I have heard the imams at the Green Lane Mosque in England spewing such hatred - you wouldn't believe it. So, a H/T to the Swedish blogger at Stor anti-islam demonstration den 11 september 2007. And thank you for standing with us on 9/11 - let the cry go forth, the terrorists attacks MUST end for the future of all of our children; the terrorist attacks MUST end so that our freedoms will be protected and not perverted in response to the attacks designed to take our freedoms away. How's that working for us? Good going on your planned demonstrations. Keep us posted on your permits and keep yourselves safe!

Islamophobia - Now we're the terrorists! Incredible!

Well, if this doesn't beat all! Really beat all! The following is taken from a link provided by Gunnihund, Islamophobia - worst kind of terrorism. Now we're the terrorists! Incredible! Who buys this slander against Western folks? Now, folks, it takes some balls or duplicity - encouraged to advance the goals of the Islamic Caliphate - to say that Western folks are engaging in Islamophobia and discriminating against folks from the Middle East or just those who practice the "religion of peace" and that prudent behavior on our part equals TERRORISM and not only terrorism but the worst kind of terrorism. Out of curiosity, just how many folks have been burned to death or had to jump from 110 stories into the open air as on 9/11 because someone lambasted Saint Mohammed or created a few funny cartoons? Frankly, I don't think Allah cares and I'm sure Mohammed doesn't; no, the only folks who care are the little turban-topped mullahs who just can't get everyone to bow to them. Sorry, fellahs! Yet, in North America and in Europe, our lions of leadership who could stand to have a backbone implanted are kowtowing to the demands of less than 2% of our population in the United States and doing the bowing on "religious" terms - expressly forbidden in our US Constitution. Give me a freaking break! Note to the illustrious leaders of the OIC - tell your boys and girls to stop blowing us up, and maybe we wouldn't be so easily tempted to reveal the tyranny that is Islam, at least as depicted in the Qur'an and practiced today in some nations and which you want to inflict upon us. By the way, I read a bit of the Old Testament recently which had very explicit rules of how to treat wives but, fellas, we've moved beyond that. Good grief. Your followers engage in behavior that threatens not only our way of life but our very lives - as in kills folks - and we're the terrorists? Are you really able to say such things with a straight face? You must be laughing at how easy the take-over of Europe is proving to be. Or is it? Have the Europeans thrown in the towel yet? Don't they have a little fight left in them? Me thinks they do - Denmark comes to mind for one. By the way, none of my friends "fear" Islam; we don't "hate" Islam or Muslims for that matter. Why should we? We have many other things to dislike - the IRS and taxes for one, the use of airport fees to supply your boys with foot-washing stations for God's sake, and of course the invasion of our nation. And university officials at public institutions turning classrooms into mini-mosques. Phobia - fear and/or hatred - just isn't in the right ballpark. Disgust perhaps at the way some Muslim organizations are using our laws in attempts to restrict our freedoms is more like it. Disgust at some Muslim organizations staging "taxi driver sit-ins - not taking passengers for xyz reason", that sort of thing makes us angry and you don't want us cranky; you want us asleep. A good old back-sliding Muslim just like a good old back-sliding Baptist - doesn't hurt anyone, doesn't hack off heads with rusty swords, doesn't fly airliners into buildings, doesn't blow up subways, and doesn't try to push his/her religion on the rest of us - thank you very much. Here's what the ministers had to say as linked by Gunnihund:
The ministers described Islamophobia as a deliberate defamation of Islam and discrimination and intolerance against Muslims. “This campaign of calumny against Muslims resulted in the publication of the blasphemous cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in a Danish newspaper and the issuance of the inflammatory statement by Pope Benedict XVI,” they said. During a speech in Germany last year, the Pope quoted a 14th Century Christian emperor who said the Prophet had brought the world only “evil and inhuman” things. The Pope’s remarks aroused the anger of the whole Islamic world. “The increasingly negative political and media discourse targeting Muslims and Islam in the United States and Europe has made things all the more difficult,” the foreign ministers said. “Islamophobia became a source of concern, especially after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, but the phenomenon was already there in Western societies in one form or the other,” they pointed out. “It gained further momentum after the Madrid and London bombings. The killing of Dutch film director Theo van Gogh in 2004 was used in a wicked manner by certain quarters to stir up a frenzy against Muslims,” the ministers pointed out. Van Gogh had made a controversial film about Muslim culture. The OIC foreign ministers deplored the misrepresentation in the Western media of Islam and Muslims in the context of terrorism. “The linkage of terrorists and extremists with Islam in a generalized manner is unacceptable,” they said. “This is further inciting negative sentiments and hatred in the West against Muslims,” they said. The ministers also pointed out that whenever the issue of Islamophobia was discussed in international forums, the Western bloc, particularly some members of the European Union, tried to avoid discussing the core issue and instead diverted the attention from their region to the situation of non-Muslims and human rights in the OIC member states. The foreign ministers said prejudices against Islam were not helping the situation. “Because of Islamophobia, millions of Muslims in the Western countries, many of whom were already underprivileged in their societies for a variety of reasons, are further alienated and targeted by hatred and discrimination.”
The fact is that most Americans just simply don't care what Muslims do as long as they leave us alone, go to work, raise their families, and let us do the same. To say the North Americans engage in the "deliberate defamation of Islam and discrimination and intolerance against Muslims" is just crap, horse-pucky. The last statement in the previous paragraph is just simple garbage - the hatred of which you speak is simply not in our religion - the one with the Golden Rule. Look closer to home for the hatred of which you speak. Muslims in America have it better here than any place else on earth - so why destroy that with demands for superior treatment, for special status? Hmmm... We simply don't care until Muslims want and demand special treatment and demand that they be regarded as superior to the citizens of the "host" nation 'cause that tune just don't play in Peoria! Islamophobia is not terrorism! Terrorism, blowing up buildings, shooting Jewish women in a temple or Jewish center in Seattle, staging the flying imams stunt - now those are acts of terrorism. If you don't want Muslims to eventually become the victims you seem to long for them to be, then put the skids to the events that raise our curiosity and engage us in debate. If you'd curtail the acts of terrorism, we wouldn't even have heard of Islam much less begun to study it. And we wouldn't notice the mosques going up on every corner. And lay off the folks in Europe - their nations are being changed before their very noses and not for the better. How about you get your boys and girls to stop "terrorizing" folks; stop killing innocent civilians; stop bombing Bali, London, Madrid, New York, the Pentagon - to name a few places; and I'll bet we'll let you crawl back into the woodwork and not even know that you were chomping away at the very foundations of our great nations, of our liberties and freedoms. You have alerted us; your representatives shout it loud and clear; what do you expect us to do, not discuss Islam? We are trying to understand what is it about a "religion" that engages in honor killings when a young girl in the family is raped; we are trying to make sense of a 7th century warrior-cult that preaches that "reform" is not possible. Don't blame us because the acts of terrorism (over 8,000 since 9/11) conducted by your followers got our attention! But defaming Islam; not a chance. The words of the Qur'an speak for themselves. And Islamophobia - the worst sort of terrorism - shame on yourselves! And discriminating against Muslims - get real! We're too busy beating each other about the head and shoulders to waste our time with Muslims. And don't go pulling that "Rosa Parks" analogy on us either! I know of Rosa Parks, and believe me, Somali taxi drivers throwing a snit in Minneapolis ain't no Rosa Parks! Pope Benedict XVI - good for the Pope! And exactly what is “The increasingly negative political and media discourse targeting Muslims and Islam in the United States and Europe has made things all the more difficult," the thing that is being made more difficult - the Islamification of Europe and the West? We are not targeting Muslims and Islam. Islam and Muslims - those we call radical Islamists - are targeting us. I know the Qur'an expressly allows for lying to non-Muslims but for goodness sake - just some truth would be helpful to the discussion. Or is that it - we are to have no discussion? Look on the bright side - sales of the Qur'an in the US are up. Reading is a wonderful thing! The thing I really like about the Islamist leaders is that they create the incident and then blame us if we try to defend ourselves. It is amazing to behold! “The linkage of terrorists and extremists with Islam in a generalized manner is unacceptable,” they said. Well, duh! All of the terrorists from the beltway snipers to the Bali bombers were practicing the "religion of peace." What connection should a reasonable person make?

Border News, Airport Toilets' new use, and the Truth Laid Bear

What a delight! For your one-stop shopping on all the latest news, opinions, et al, on Border Control - not; illegal immigrants and the rape of America and more, check out Outraged Making me know I am arriving late to the party. What a source of information! And An American Expat in Southeast Asia has a great post, Airport Toilet Proselytization. Our American Expat also links to a Moslem program funded by American taxpayer dollars. If you go there, take a look a the "Top ten travelers' advisories for Arab/Moslem Americans. Less than 2% of the population in America, as unoppressed as they are ever likely to be any place else in the world under Islamic Law, and they have the nerve to identify themselves with Rosa Parks. And for fun and good posts as well as ratings of various blogs, see The Truth Laid Bear.

Western Multiculturalism - a one-way ticket to suicide?

For a few days now, battling another flu and unable to really post, I spent a bit of time clicking around in the World Factbook - CIA data on nations for 2004 and then 2007. Funny, but I could not find Britain, Great Britain, England - but I did find some interesting data about multiculturalism which everyone knows is oh-so good for Western nations. Guilt, you know, at being successful. Whoops, just found England under United Kingdom. Simply put - those in Western cultures are called "racists" and shouted down from the highest roof-tops if they want to defend and maintain their cultures. Foul, racists, you know the drill BUT it turns out that those screaming racists and taking advantage of our generousity - Saudi Arabia comes to mind - are closed societies. Build all the mosques you want in the US, fellas; but we won't be building any churches or cathedrals in Saudi Arabia. Hmmm.... But first and foremost, the demographics of a nation are what the nation says the demographics are. Most of the demographics here are from the The World Factbook - 2004. In the most recent The World Factbook (2007 data), in the United States, the ethnic groups are definded as follows and there are 3.05 legal migrants per 1,000 people. In the United States:
Ethnic groups: white 81.7%, black 12.9%, Asian 4.2%, Amerindian and Alaska native 1%, native Hawaiian and other Pacific islander 0.2% (2003 est.) note: a separate listing for Hispanic is not included because the US Census Bureau considers Hispanic to mean a person of Latin American descent (including persons of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin) living in the US who may be of any race or ethnic group (white, black, Asian, etc.) Religions: Protestant 52%, Roman Catholic 24%, Mormon 2%, Jewish 1%, Muslim 1%, other 10%, none 10% (2002 est.) [The religion data must be wrong on its face as there are about 6-7 million Muslims in the nation certainly practicing their religion and 1% is only have of the number of Muslim citizens or legal residents.]
If you look at the US data for 2004, you will find that the percentage of folks classified as "white" was 77%, why the up-tick of nearly 5% in five years? We know the white folks ain't birthing no babies, Miss Scarlet. That 5% represents what - 15 million people. And of course that percentage will increase dramatically when the 12-20 million illegals are added to the rolls as citizens. The following data for the United States is from the 2004 Factbook:
Ethnic groups: white 77.1%, black 12.9%, Asian 4.2%, Amerindian and Alaska native 1.5%, native Hawaiian and other Pacific islander 0.3%, other 4% (2000) note: a separate listing for Hispanic is not included because the US Census Bureau considers Hispanic to mean a person of Latin American descent (including persons of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin) living in the US who may be of any race or ethnic group (white, black, Asian, etc.) Religions: Protestant 56%, Roman Catholic 28%, Jewish 2%, other 4%, none 10% (1989)
Population data is what the reporting nation says it is. Period. So the United States is now experiencing the largest invasion of any nation during "peace" with the invading nation during the course of recorded history and all of the folks coming from Mexico are not "hispanic" but rather white, black, Asian, etc. Fine but when I fill out a questionnaire asking ethnicity, the only choice I now have is non-Hispanic white. If we're all white, what's with that? And what's the need for all this "affirmative action/second class citizen stuff" or civil rights laws at all, at all? Check the Arizona State Police Sexual Offender data base to confirm that we are almost all white, at least in Arizona. The United Kingdom, ie, England, has 2.19 immigrants per 1,000, far exceeding the nation's birthrate, a population of 60 million, and claiming 1.5 million Muslims. England, in some places, does not teach the Holocaust for fear of offending its Muslim immigrant population. So history is being re-written or ignored not by revisionists but by the cry of "offense." How the mighty fall! [I'm not throwing stones 'cause I don't want the stone to hit me like a boom-a-rang.] Australia reports 20 million people with 4 immigrants per 1,000. France reports a population of 62 million, no people of Middle Eastern ethnicity, only folks from North Africa and for religion, 5% to 10% of the population is Muslim which I believe is a low number. Germany reports a population of 82.5 million with 91.5% German, 2.4% Turkish, Muslims 3.7%, with 2.18 immigrants per 1,000 people. Italy reports a population of 58 million, no Middle Eastern ethnic groups identified yet there are 2.1 immigrants per 1,000. Denmark reports a population of 5.4 million with 2.5 immigrants per 1,000 people. The ethnic groups are: Scandinavian, Inuit, Faroese, German, Turkish, Iranian, Somali with 2% Muslims. Finland reports 5.2 million population with Finns 93%, Swedes 6%, , Sami 0.11 %, Roma 0.12%, Tatar 0.02% with 1% immigrants per 1,000 people. So, then what is all the fuss in Finland about Islamification? Mexico reports a population 105 milion (many living in the United States) with Amerindian-Spanish (mixed race) 60%, Amerindian 30%, white 9%, and other 1%. Canada reports a population of 32.5 million with Arabs being 6% of the population. Japan reports a population of 127.3 million with 0% immigrants. Recall that Japan is roughly the size of California. China reports a population of 1.3 billion people, from the Middle East? Now the data becomes interesting regarding the world of multiculturalism and the one-way street of that entire charade, 'cause folks, the Western nations are being colonized by - what some would call third-world nations - folks from not especially compatible cultures and clearly incompatible "religious cults" and gangs/thugs but it ain't happenin' the other way around - I'll leave the inferences to you. Saudi Arabia has 25.7 million population which is 90% Arab, 10% Afro-Asian and for religion 100% Muslim. Probably not many churches going up across Saudi Arabia. Iran has a population of 69 million folks, NO immigrants, and the religions are 98% Muslim divided between Sunnis and Shites. My point is simple: I wonder how Cleopatra felt as the asps writhed around her and she realized, even before the first strike, that it was too late. I marvel that in Mexico, Mexicans are Amerindian-Spanish and white folks are white, but just across our border, presto-change-oh, Mexicans become white. Intriguing, the tricks and data and numbers. And all of us under the illusion that we are being invaded when it's really millions of white Europeans escaping the corruption of Mexico. Did anyone tell La Raza? [I highly recommend Mark Steyn's great compilation of data, America Alone found at The Steyn On Line.]

Rev. Jerry Falwell - Rest in Peace

Love him or hate him, people didn't seem to have more than two ways to look at the late Rev. Jerry Falwell. He was a man of principle during an "unprincipled" time of leaders who twist as the wind blows; He was a man of dedication and loyalty to his beliefs who established a university that will live long after him and carry on the training of principled young men and women who will live by the "Golden Rule", doing good and not harm; and He died as we could only hope to pass on, at his desk, working and doing what he loved. So, love him or hate him, mock him or mourn his loss, you can't rob him of his integrity, you may envy his integrity and mock him for what you see lacking in yourself; and, Right or wrong, he was man enough to admit mistakes and to look for the good in us all. To the Reverend Jerry Falwell, rest in peace.

CAIR and the Flying Imams - Discrimination or Conspiracy? Part 1

To get right to the crux of this post: The behavior of the flying imams is akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater, setting a fire and then daring anyone to use a fire extinguisher. Their behavior and the resulting lawsuits are most probably planned and perhaps our law enforcement officials should charge the flying imams, CAIR and all others involved in the planning and implementation of this plan with insighting terror and then applying lawsuits as extortion 1) for money to fund God knows what, and 2) for passenger silence through the imams superiority of being above the law. These tactics may work for folks such as – you now who – but a religion being used as a shield for terrorist-like behavior and passenger-intimidation – surely we have the legal minds to nip this method of “terrorism” in the bud, to stop this “jihad by lawsuit.” Tell me the difference in theory between this methodology to weaken our nation and the plotting of 6 Muslims to “hit Fort Dix” and kill soldiers. (search 6 Muslims plot to hit Fort Dix or in the Washington Times, articles by Jerry Seper) CAIR’s plan seems to be two-fold: 1) to stifle you and to leave you helpless through harassment suits and intimidation; in addition, 2) to elevate Muslim Imams and Muslims in general to special “above the secular law” status making them accountable only to Shari’a Law or Islamic Law while at the same time making us “submit” to Islam. (The Submission Train and here for more references.) Attaining this goal takes perseverance and a plan. Have you ever asked yourself why CAIR has or needs over 30 branches throughout the United States much like Mexican Consulates? Think about that and also ask yourself exactly what CAIR stands for – the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Sounds like an ombudsman group to me; a group liaison between two governments – the United States of America and the Islamic Caliphate. Think Bureau of Indian Affairs. All American Indian tribes are legal entities or separate nations unto themselves. Did you know that? They have rules and regulations – by treaty – that define their relationship with the United States of America. Is that how CAIR is establishing itself? When I have seen CAIR representatives on TV, they seem unctuous but arrogant with a superiority that is condescending at best, contemptuous at worst. CAIR’s arrogance and seemingly general contempt for the average American and especially American blacks is apparent in their methods. And their attitude of “speakers for all Muslims in America” demonstrates their demagoguery. Through made-up discrimination against the flying imams – not to be confused with the Flying Nun of years gone by who was good and wholesome or the Flying Walendas – the manner CAIR uses to increase membership and to become the voice of all Muslims in America is to set about “stirring up Muslims in America by appeals to emotion, prejudice, in order to win Muslims in America over quickly and so gain power.” I must refer you to Stop the Project and the avowed Twenty-year plan developed by the Muslim Brotherhood – a group founded in Egypt some 80 years ago or so – to infiltrate and take-over the United States of America for Islam. [Burn this into your brain – Islam is not just the “little church around the corner.” Islam – by the words of its leaders has a political policy arm. It is as much like a political party or a nationalistic movement as any “ism” you will ever encounter. To speak of this is not “hate speech”. If that were so, then Islamist leaders would themselves be guilty of “hate speech.” (site reference) Let’s get to CAIR’s PR and legal strategy regarding the 6 imams and their “self-initiated” case of discrimination at the airport on November 20, 2006. The internet is replete with references to the so-called flying imams. Here are a few sites of the many: A Passenger’s Right to Survive CAIR’s Strategy to win the 6 imams case: audio and transcripts upon which my anaysis is based. Laws must exist to curtail frivolous lawsuits and curtail an organization creating self-induced incidents designed to bring about the illusion of “discrimination” through intentional behavior and then turning around and suing for monetary gain. Laws must exist to curtail an organization engaging in planned harassment then hiding behind our system of laws. What are RICO statutes and can they be used when an organization or group seeks to extort another group, an individual, or a commercial entity? We as Americans must become aware of CAIR’s tactics and we must pursue all non-violent avenues open to us to alert our schools, to educate the public, and to alert our legislators to these tactics. The recent HRES 288 (give reference) is a perfect example of “greasing the skids” to set the stage for future legislation. Get the House Resolution through – easy to vote on because it is not “official law” and then slip in the law, such as HR 1592 on “hate crimes” (site several references here) which set the stage for future “thought crimes” that legislators and then law enforcement think they can infer from someone’s speech or writing. Big Brother isn’t busy enough it seems. In this war against Islamic terrorists, each American citizen has as “citizen’s responsibility” to make any authority aware of suspicious behavior by anyone boarding an airplane, taking extensive pictures of reservoirs, taking special interest in highway overpasses, bridges, skylines, electrical power generating dams, military bases such as Fort Dix, and the like. Keep in mind this “war” has been brought to us over the past 25 years at least. It is nothing new; it just that now we have acknowledged the war and our enemies. The flying imams and CAIR intend to intimidate and silence citizens just as they are doing in their support of HR 1592 – a great victory, thank you Rep. John Conyers – and HRES 288, and the defeat of HR 1640 protecting passengers. All efforts are designed to leave us personally defenseless and our tolerant nation paralyzed and to harass citizens from speaking or writing the truth, from being vigilant, from perhaps saving their own lives and the lives of fellow citizens. Let me interject here that American Muslims died horrendous deaths when the Twin Towers came down; so these Islamist terrorists will kill anyone; CAIR will go to any lengths to stifle, perhaps extort, intimidate, and eventually nag or badger us into “submission” in their attempt to become the spokesmen for all Muslims in America. Do not think CAIR is alone either. The Muslim Brotherhood is active behind the scenes with front organizations in this nation. The Islamists are becoming very adept at using our generosity and our laws of “equal protection” for 501c3 organizations and for “churches” to set up a massive network from innocuous Islamic Centers on or near college campuses to tax-exempt organizations to raise money for any manner of activities. As an aside, Barack Hussein Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham met Barack’s father and later his step-father at an East meets West center at a University in Hawaii. [Search Ann Obama for clarification] From there Barack spent his early-childhood in Indonesia. He could not have avoided training as a Muslim. My question: is he allowed to lie about his religious affiliation to advance the cause of Islam? Just curious. Muslims cannot leave the religion of peace, thereby putting a President Obama in great danger from Muslims as the Qur'an dictates the death of apostates. If Americans of all political persuasions need anymore verifiable proof that the Democrat-controlled Congress stands on the side of terrorists and/or terrorists sympathizers and supporters and against the American populace regardless of ethnicity, gender, age, religion – then the 237-180 vote that passed HR 1592, Local Law Enforcement…… should demonstrate that the Democrat Liberal Left’s hatred of George W. Bush and their appeasement to those Islamists terrorists whomever they are and under whatever guise they masquerade not only within the United States but throughout the world should be proof enough. The John Doe Motion HR 1640 to protect passengers who pointed out suspicious behavior to airplane crew from civil suit has been dropped. You are vulnerable, you are defenseless now against lawsuits filed by reprehensible men meaning to do you harm – the flying imams – who initiated behavior designed to intimidate and frighten passengers. [One or more of whom are fluent in Arabic or the language the imams were speaking.] When passengers responded as planned and anticipated by the imams – their behavior designed to solicit fear – the imams are now suing the airline company, the crew, and with Democrat support will be able to sue passengers – sheep to slaughter. The CAIR Town Hall Meeting is billed as a meeting on “airport profiling.” However, no profiling was involved in the flying imams’ self-generated incident. Profiling in and of itself can and should be applied by authorized police or governmental agencies; however, when one calls attention to oneself through extremist behavior, one should not be allowed to call “foul” when people act to defend themselves against a perceived threat. Imam or shaman or priest or snake worshiper – no one should be able to harass and intimidate and frighten passengers without repercussions and even criminal penalties being filed upon the respective imam, shaman, priest, or snake worshiper. To repeat: The behavior of the flying imams is akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater, setting a fire and then daring anyone to use a fire extinguisher. Their behavior and the resulting lawsuits are most probably planned and perhaps our law enforcement officials should charge the flying imams, CAIR and all others involved in the planning and implementation of this plan with insighting terror and then applying lawsuits as extortion 1) for money to fund God knows what, and 2) for passenger silence through the imams superiority of being above the law. These tactics may work for folks such as – you now who – but a religion being used as a shield for terrorist-like behavior and passenger-intimidation – surely we have the legal minds to nip this method of “terrorism” in the bud, to stop this “jihad by lawsuit.” Tell me the difference in theory between this methodology to weaken our nation and the plotting of 6 Muslims to “hit Fort Dix” and kill US soldiers. Which is "terror" and which is not? Next: Nihad Awad's call - we need more victims! Part 2 (or something close)

Christophobia virus nearing pandemic levels

For several years we have been warned of the Bird Flu threatening to reach levels of the Swine Flu Pandemic of 1918 - wiping us all out. This blogger in no way intends to make light of the Pandemic of 1918. But the Christophobia Virus also mutating into the nearly indistinguishable Anglophobia Virus is reaching into once safe, stabilized regions of the planet and destabilizing is what I would call torching 9-10,000 cars in France a bit destabilizing. Now, no region is safe; no region can escape the insidious nature of the Christophobia Virus or its nearly identical cousin, the Anglophobia Virus. As a pathology, the viruses are deadly - those not killed outright in the 8,313 Islamist terrorist attacks to date since 9/11/01 are being overwhelmed or overthrown, forced into "submission" and inferiority-status through lawsuits or the threats of lawsuits and extortion threats or coups such as in Thailand. A "phobia" can be defined as a fear or a hatred. In the case of the Christophobia Virus, it is characterized by an inherent hatred, or a hatred instilled at birth. The virus appears to be centralized or localized within the community of the so-called "religion of peace." See my posts on CAIR or see anything at the Gates of Vienna or the other sites I have listed in the sidebar or in "Islamophobia - my ass!" for more references to this pathogen than you'll be able to read in a lifetime. You'll be wearing a burka before you get the reading done so best to download and print it out before the heavy hand of the virus makes "freedom of speech" a moot point. But - alas - reading about the Christophobia Virus or the Anglophobia Virus will not protect you from its paralyzing effects. The only known cure or "anti-virus" is common sense, a strong indomitable will to maintain the "host" culture, nation, community under attack or assault is to have people in positions of power with gonads, aka balls slam-packed with testosterone who are willing to shred the "tenets of political correctness" and spit in the face of Islamofacism, not bow to it. US Corporations, CAIR, and the Islamification of America for more discussion. I cannot say whether or not every Muslim is infected with Christophobia or Anglophobia but the carriers are typically Islamists. Because the Qur'an calls for lying to non-Muslims, you see the sticky situation in trying to give the benefit of the doubt to "moderate" Muslims. This is the way the viruses work in America: in America, approximately 2% or 7,000,000 folks in the population are Islamic. I don't know the % of Islamists but they are the ones driving the train, the bus, the taxi as it were - and the virus - hatred of Christians, Jews, all things secular - is spreading. Search The World Factbook to check on other nations. Let it be noted that the pandemic is not spread by the size or number of those infected. It is spread through capitulation to the few at the expense of the many. Authorities can talk about Bird Flu all they like but in that virus, we know what we're fighting and, though many of us would die, we'd know when the pandemic had burned itself out. Unless we stop the creeping encroachment of Islamofacism of which Mikko Ellila wrote along with hundreds of others trying to sound the alarm, the virus will never burn itself out until it sucks the life our of every nation on earth and you are forced beneath the shroud to bow and to submit, not to the Cult of Islam, but to your betters! That, my friends, is not Freedom! It is not equality! It is not "all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator..." It is tyranny under the skirts of, what?, a so-called religion. And that is why we infidels are pissed off at CAIR, at our castrated "leaders", and at everyone who acts like appeasement leads to a cure - in the echo of Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along?" Nope, Rodney - not when the goal is to put us under the yoke and whip of the Islamic Religious Police. [I did a bit of research on national demographics in The World Factbook. Nations classify their populations in very peculiar ways. Check Italy, Spain, France, Australia, the USA, Mexico, etc. I couldn't find Britain - don't know how I missed it.] Those with the Christophobia virus are lucky in the US because they have the atheists, the ACLU, and others to help them.

US Corporations, CAIR and the Islamification of America

Several days ago, I linked to The Submission Train written and posted by Dymnpha on the accommodation the Dell Corporation has made to CAIR and Dell's Islamic/Muslim employees. The more I thought about Dymnpha's post, the more disgusted I got. CAIR is aided by the Liberal Left and corporations are caving in - foot-washing stations for one example, and now Dell to bring "religion" into the workplace. But don't be fooled - these are not Civil Rights cases equal to American blacks seeking equal opportunity of employment for whom the laws were written and passed. Nor should corporations fall prey to the under-the-table, implied threat of extortion or the preemption of their corporations by a select few. I have written, not yet posted, a piece on the Christophobia Virus and its close cousin, the Anglophobia Virus which are nearing pandemic levels. I'll get to that later. The crux of the piece is this:
Dell Corporation needed to spit in the face of "political correctness" and say, "You demand changes in our corporate culture to accommodate your "religious" practices - work someplace else. We've got a company to run." You see here's the trick, the wolf in sheep's clothing, the twist or distortion of our laws: We have laws that dictate that we won't discriminated in our hiring practices against a person - as in NOT employ a person - based on "race, creed, gender, age." We do not have laws that say we have to turn every corporation into a mosque, a temple, "the little church around the corner", or a bath house. Corporations have no laws ordering them to accommodate so-called "religious" practices that at their heart are designed to disrupt business in the work place and to institute "unequal treatment" among/between employees, making a select group of employees - those practicing Islam - superior to another group based on the canard of "religious" practice because these employees have to toddle off to special accommodations throughout the day to meet the demands of their "religion". This abuse or distortion by CAIR on behalf of Muslim employees flies in the face of our Civil Rights Act of 1964. In fact, the latter - unequal treatment - is what our Civil Rights Laws are designed to avoid. The law is that we cannot discriminate in hiring based upon race, gender, creed, or age. Corporations must not accept or honor Shari'a Law. They must honor the Civil Rights Bill of 1964. Fulfilling obligations under the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 and instituting Shari'a Law within their corporations are not the same thing. It is employees who are expected to check their "religious" practice at the door and when they accept the job offered to them by the company, they have to accommodate the corporate practice or they can turn down the job. At that point, employment or no employment is up to the individual once they've received the job offer. The Dell Case and the foot-washing, and the taxi drivers refusing to accept passengers on "religious" grounds are canards. These cases are designed to push the envelope and to bring our nation into submission to Islam.
There is nothing mysterious about the Islamification of America. Corporations do not have to "submit"; they only have to have equal opportunity in hiring. I'm positive corporations do not offer kosher food or kosher dining facilities and I know the employees of Jewish faith do not expect such "special" treatment. Shame on Dell. Shame on the airports in Kansas and Phoenix. Where are your $600.00 an hour lawyers who couldn't figure this out? God Bless America - because no one else is looking out for her! With the ACLU and the Liberal Left on the side of the Islamists and perhaps Saudi money calling the shots, and the men in America castrated - maybe we should all become MINOs - Muslim in name only - at least that would save us the tax on practicing another "religion" and we'd then get equal treatment in the work place. Shame on Dell. Played like a fool! I'm dropping them like a "hot rock."

Appeal for Courage - A Site of Courage and Loyalty for our US Military

A few days ago, I posted Should we leave Iraq? Why?. I received an anonymous comment which had a link I want to share for all military personnel who may not be aware of the link: Appeal for Courage In an effort to shore up the limp and wobbly spines of our "leaders", I ask all military men and women to go to this site: Appeal for Courage. As the great Lady Margaret Thatcher said to President George Herbert Walker Bush, "Don't go wobbly on me now, George." Thank you!

"Islamophobia, my ass!" by najistani [A public service]

The following comment was let at Beach Burst - 5-12-2007 - Defending Western Civilization. Najistani left the comment and I thought - as another person's opinion, the comment should not fall into the dust-bins of comments. Several links for additional reading left for you by Najistani and a few found by myself as well are: From Global Politician: Islamist Dictionary for Infidels Defeating Islamism The Grand Delusion Islam From Final Crusade: Stop Islamofacism- excellent resource From the Infidel Bloggers Alliance: 20 Things you should know about Islam - great resource; first, skip to the end and read the comments. It is worth your time. Two posts I did much earlier may be fun: WASPophobia Islamophobia - NOT! The comment from Najistani follows in full: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "It seems to have become a knee-jerk reaction among Muslims, Marxists and their colleagues in academia and the MSM to dismiss any rational examination of Islam as 'Islamophobia'. ISLAMOPHOBIA is a very confusing term because a 'phobia' is an irrational fear, whereas the civilized person's increasing apprehension about Islam is very definitely founded upon real threats to freedom, the rule of law and the rights of women and children to be free from sexual molestation. ISLAMIC AWARENESS is a far more useful concept than Islamophobia. The eight components of Islamic awareness are: 1) Islam is monolithic, static and unresponsive to change. Islam is based on the Koran, a hate-filled rant written by a psychopathic pedophile which claims to be the 'Eternal Word of God'. If you are a Muslim you must accept the Koran without question, as the unchangeable and unchallengeable word of God. If you do not accept ALL of the koran (including the passages that incite murder, maiming and rape) then you are an apostate and other Muslims have a duty to kill you. Islam is monolithic, petrified and fossilized, and can never separate itself or progress from this barbaric 7th century text. Modernization (Bid'ah) is strictly forbidden "Every innovation is a misguidance and every misguidance goes to Hell fire." 2) Islam does not have values in common with other cultures, is not affected by them and does not influence them in any positive way. Islam is totally different from any other religion. There is no Golden Rule. There is no 'Thou Shalt not Kill', no requirement for truth. In fact killing (Jihad) and lying (Taqiyya) to further the expansion of Islam are regarded as virtues. Those aspects of the cult which appear to imitate Judeo-Christianity are in fact a thin veneer covering vicious and evil barbarism. The pivot of islamic existence is an implacable hatred of the non-believer, which is taught from infancy. All the rest of the 'religion' revolves around this divinely decreed requirement to kill, maim, rape, subjugate, plunder and humiliate the infidel. Jews and Christians are pigs and apes. Islam has produced nothing of use or interest to other cultures for the last 500 years. Islam is a theocratic, pre-rational phase of social development which Europe left behind in the sixteenth century. 3) Islamic culture continues to be in all respects inferior to the West. It produces no artistic or scientific output of any significance. Islamic society is barbaric, irrational, primitive, tribal and sexist. Stonings, honor killings, use of women as possessions, institutionalised pedophilia, polygamy and illiteracy abound. 4) Islam is violent, and aggressive to its very core. The Koran advocates terrorism and Allah rewards those who kill infidels. Islam is engaged in a 1400 year old 'clash of civilisations' where all other cultures are regarded as 'Jahiliya' to be destroyed, censored and suppressed. The world is divided into Dar al-Harb and Dar-al-Islam. Dar al-Islam has bloody borders and is permanently at war with Dar al-Harb. This war does not just apply to the West. Anarchic failed states such Pakistan and Afghistan were once peaceful and prosperous Buddhist countries, but all traces of their Buddhist history have been eliminated. Pacifism is no protection against Islamic predation. 5) Islam is a political ideology as well as being an irrationalist cult , and is used for political advantage, often by cynical rulers who live as playboys in the fleshpots of Dar al-Harb. Although utterly irrational and oscurantist, Islam survives because it provides the justification for a medieval power structure where the priests are at the top, the Muslim male in the middle, and women and kaffirs at the bottom. 6) Muslims are continually criticising the West - moaning, whingeing, whining and complaining, even when they have chosen to come and live here. The are perpetually pleading for special treatment with alternating temper tantrums and threats of riots and terrorism interspersed with sulky infantile displays of victim status. They especially resent westerners applying modern standards of analysis to their protected 'victim culture'. 7) Uniquely among immigrants, Muslims refuse to fit in with the host society. Instead they expect the hosts to fit in with them. This causes real problems in employability as the employer can expect far greater numbers of lawsuits alleging discrimination etc from Muslim employees than from less 'victimised' groups. Muslims also are a major security risk in sensitive occupations such as police, armed forces, airports etc. Their first loyalty is to the Ummah, not to their country (whose institutions and culture they hate). 8) Wariness about Muslims is natural and normal. These people really do want to kill us, plunder our property and rape and subjugate our children. The Koran tells them to do it and their role-model Mohammed set an example of divinely justified criminality which every Muslim endevors to follow. So phobia my ass! Be afraid! Be VERY afraid!! You have good reason to be. The Koran is a psychopath's charter. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I do not believe we need to be "afraid"; I believe we need to be aware and we need to take counter-measures to defend ourselves and our culture - such as no foot-washing basins on "religious" grounds; no compromises at Dell on Muslim prayer times in the workplace: here and here. These two links will get you to other links. As I said, one more person's point of view.

Virginia Tech - Leave the rest to God

Mother's Day, May 13, 2007, was a day filled with unexpected joy and equally unexpected sorrow - the sorrow that swells the eyes with tears that stream down the face and it matters not because many others are weeping, others are silent draw within themselves from the solemnity and pathos of the scene, of the reality that from a distance is somehow real and not real. Sunday was a beautiful day at Virginia Tech, a cool breeze, a near-cloudless sky, rich green grass filling the Drill Field and then, a long white and blue tent, one of those affairs used for outdoor wedding receptions but there would be no wedding receptions for those memorialized within. And Sunday was my day to grieve for the tragedy and loss of that day nearly a month earlier - April 16, 2007 - a day that should be remembered, not as another in a list of school shootings, but as a day to stand with September 11, 2001. It is true the loss of life was larger in 9/11; our nation was attacked by foreign nationals linked to al Qaeda; and we could retaliate. But in Virginia, just as with the terrorist killings along I-95, the beltway and interstate near Washington, DC, there are no countries to bomb, no Taliban to go after, no al-Qaeda to condemn, and the terrorist attacks are treated as "crimes", not as what they are. But in Virginia, April 16, 2007 is our 9/11. At the site at Virginia Tech, the anger begins to well-up within me again... But anger has no place - not at Virginia Tech - not on this Mother's Day. Not on this hallowed ground of tribute and love. Today there is only grief. Even anger at all in our system that contributed to the senseless murders cannot diminish the grief, the sorrow, the anguish at the memorial to those fallen loved ones at Virginia Tech. Burruss Hall is the place of the memorial, it is the place of the vigils that took place and are still taking place. Dried flowers and fresh mark each memorial. The American flag and a candle in a red holder sits atop a wrought iron spike driven into the ground in a semi-circle at the rise of the knoll fronting Burruss Hall. The Virginia flag, rippling in a good wind, rests at half-staff. And down below, in the bowl of the Drill Field, the sides of the tent that houses the memorials to each man and woman flutters like the sides of battle-field tents of Knights of old. Norris Hall is to the right of Burruss Hall, set back from the road that circles the Drill Field. The hall is approached by a series of steps as the incline of the slight hill is climbed. Today, Norris Hall is a silent stone sentinel of the horror that took place there, now surrounded by tall dark-green mesh panels - it is closed; it is lonely. If one is very quiet and still, it is as if - for fleeting seconds, not hardly there - one can sense or feel the confusion of that day in April, the echoes of startled faculty and students, the shrieks of a maniac - a cowardly terrorist. Make no mistake, the perpetrator was a "terrorist" in any sense of the word. Standing under the shade of large trees 50-60 feet or so from the doors of Norris Hall, I could not help but have compassion for the emergency men and women along with the police and crime scene investigators, the school administrators who entered there and the carnage they faced - the utter shock and trauma - the pain; and the images imprinted upon their minds and hearts forever. Nothing calls your attention to Norris Hall. Your attention is drawn and focused upon the memorial to the men and women whose lives stood before them. A mother and father whose daughter had perished that fateful day were standing at the memorial - the flags, the mementoes, the candles, flowers, cards, poems, graduation caps - the gifts left by fellow students and friends in farewell. As is my way, I went up to them; they welcomed me into their aura of grief and circled me with their arms in a figurative sense. We spoke and I said, "Please know that Americans stand with you; we pray for you every day." The mother - with tears - said, "Oh, pray for us, we need your prayers. You know, I thought it was getting better, the distance and all but," her faced changed as the tears took over, filled her eyes, her features screaming at the depth of the grief, "it is so hard. This is Mother's Day." We talked but a few seconds more; the father shook my hand and thanked me for our prayers - yours and mine. And then, the mother stepped back, said something I don't remember, shook one hand with a firm grip and gripped my upper-arm with her other hand. With power and purpose, she said, "Hug your children. Hug them today." And that is how people move into and out of our lives - to touch us and to be touched in return. Tears ran down my cheeks. Mother's Day was the day to let in the grief that I had withheld in the wake of the murders, to walk across the Drill Field of Virginia Tech. To enter the tent that housed the individual memorials, to walk in silence among the folding boards filled with statements of farewell, of mourning, of honor to fallen friends and loved ones, of humility and love, to run the fingers over the tributes, the Bibles, the picture frames, the tassel from a cap never to be worn. Mother's Day was my day to grieve - we are all Hokies and we are none immune - and my day to say to all young men and women embarking into life who may read these words - with tears streaming down my face: "Don't you see that your parents want only the best for you? Do you see why they worry for you? Can't you sense in Austin's mother's love for her daughter where our enthusiasm and joy comes from? We, parents, pray for your joy and happiness. This is what parents do; it is our job-description! We love you! Can you - as our children - just for a time show some patience and compassion, some maturity, and know that in the shadow of every parent's concern is the knowledge - kept deep, hidden and NEVER spoken - that life is not promised to any of us?" We talk of Hokie pride; we will prevail. And that is all true; laughter will ring out in the halls at Virginia Tech. But, my God, the pain! The power and strength in the pain, agony, and anguish that shone through the eyes of Austin's mother told me she had reared a very fine daughter. Now, I remember the next to last words Austin's mom said to me as we stood in the semi-circle of flowers, mementoes, beads, gifts, "I am glad that so many people are getting to know my girl..." Yes, we are "getting to know her girl." This post is dedicated to the 32 following brothers and sisters of the Virginia Tech family and to all who knew and loved them in life: Daniel Alejandro Perez Cueva; Ryan Christopher Clark; Henh Ly, aka Henry Lee; Emily Jane Hilscher; Matt La Porte; Kevin Granata; Brian Bluhm; Nicole White; Reema Samaha; G. V. Loganathan; Mary Karen Read; Daniel Patrick O'Neil; Parthai Lombantoruan; Juan Ramon Ortiz Ortiz; Ross Abdallah Alameddine; Jocelyne Couture-Nowak; Lauren Ashley McCain; Weleed Mohamad Shaalan; Matthew Gregory Gwaltney; Caitlin Miller Hammaren; Rachael Elizabeth Hill; Jeremy Herbstritt; Liviu Librescu; Jamie Bishop; Julia Pryde; Austin Cloyd; Erin Peterson; Jarrett Lee Lane; Michael S. Pohle, Jr.; Minal Hiralal Panchal; Maxine Shelly Turner; Leslie Geraldine Sherman The names of the students and faculty were gotten from a sticker done by FastSigns, On the sticker are these words: Live Simply, Love Graciously, Care Deeply, Speak Kindly, Pray Daily - 4-16-07, "Leave the rest to God." [Note: this post will be modified and up-dated when I have the pictures to add.]
