The Insurgency - Michael Lotus at RightNetwork

I haven't had much to say this week... Just busy reading blogs, conservative news sites and waiting for spring to bloom down here in the southern hemisphers. The south island here in NZ has had a really cold spring with winter storms killing thousands of baby lambs. NZ farmers should know by now as each year (like past 15) gets a bit colder than the next... there is no global warming, but NZ and world leftist media keeps pushing it... for the $$ only. $$ didn't help the thousands of baby lambs last week who froze to death, did it...

But I prefer optimistic news stories better than pessimistic ones. That damn glass is half full already... In the USA, the next 6 weeks until the Nov 2010 elections and the next 2 years until the 2010 elections will be interesting as "the insurgency" grows. Check out this article by Michael Lotus over at Right Network:

"Mass political movements often begin with a single, striking event. The Insurgency began in the fall of 2008, when President Bush, Senator Obama, and Senator McCain appeared together to endorse the TARP bailout. At that moment the lights came on for many Americans. It was glaringly obvious that both political parties jointly operated the system, and the system existed to protect the well connected at the expense of everyone else. The public opposed the TARP bailouts; the banks got their money anyway. The Insurgency, long brewing, began.

The Insurgency is a movement of citizens directed against unsustainable government taxation and regulation, and spending, both of which benefit insiders rather than ordinary people. The target of the Insurgency is a leviathan in Washington, D.C. that will ruin us all if it is not dismantled.

The Insurgency is part of a long tradition of mass political movements in our history. It has the potential to make a fundamental change in American life—for the better."

I hope so Michael... America has had completely the wrong kind of change the last 2 years and the last few decades. The ship, listing left, needs to be righted.

NOVEMBER IS COMING - from BreitbartTV:

Video titled "The Last Best Hope" was created by Ben Howe.

A Johnny Nash song to cheer you up

SING ALONG! here are the lyrics:

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright), sun shiny day
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright), sun shiny day

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is that rainbow I've been praying for
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright), sun shiny day

Look all around, there's nothing but blue skies
Look straight ahead, there's nothing but blue skies

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright), sun shiny day
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright), sun shiny day
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright), sun shiny day
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright), sun shiny day

After 6 months: top 10 failures of O-scare

Hat tip: NiceDeb's "No Ms. Sebelius, America is not "confused" about health care"

"Top 10 Failures of ObamaCare After Six Months" according to Emily Miller at Human Events:

1. Premiums Have Gone Up: Obama promised that families will pay less for their healthcare premiums under his plan. Quite the opposite has happened. Insurance companies are making double-digit rate increases to consumer premiums in anticipation of the cost of new mandates by ObamaCare. The estimated premiums rate increase for consumers is between 1% and 9%, a direct impact from the new regulations.
2. You Can’t Keep Your Current Plan And Doctor: Businesses will be forced to change their employees’ healthcare plans in order to meet the new regulations. An estimated 69% of businesses will be forced to change their plans, forcing countless millions of Americans to change plans and doctors.
(Click to get more details on the rest:)
3. National Budget Deficit Is Worse
4. More Children Are Uninsured
5. Small Business Taxes Increased
6. Small Businesses Health Care Burden Increased
7. More Government Spending
8. Senior Citizens Suffer from Medicare Cuts
9. Minorities Get Worse Health Care
10. Democrats Losing Elections

(ok the last one is a good thing and more of an opinion, eh!) I recommend a good commentary on this article especially back and forth between leftist "Jon" from Mill Vally, CA and rightist/centrist "Mike" from St. Louis. Example:

"Mike in St. Louis: Really? Wow! Could you give me an example of a community hospital that provides comprehensive services for free? I mean, the whole nine yards: extended in-patient care, surgery, drugs, you name it. Just one, please.
Sep 22, 2010 @ 04:19 PM
Jon, Mill Valley, California"

"Sure. Regional Hospital here in St. Louis. How 'bout that, Sucka?!?!? (Hint: I'm a pharmacist. I know what I'm talking about. Trust me. I've had indigent patients and they're not getting ti for free. Those of us who actually work and pay taxes are footing their bills. Feel better for voting for Obama now?)
Sep 22, 2010 @ 04:21 PM
Mike, St. Louis"

Jon rambles on like a good Obot in his commentary while various people give him logical arguments, facts and reason back - of course he is not persuaded. He is probably being paid by Organizing for America to be a leftist TROLL. Of all the commentary though on this article on a conservative news/commentary website, maybe 15-20% were ill-illusioned leftists and 80%+ were centrist/rightists.

That matches the demographics in America.

My favorite comment here was a list from TAS in Ohio trying to help Jon (who is un-help-able!):

Jon if you cannot explain why you voted for Democrats, I took the liberty of listing a few to help you out:

10. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

8. I voted Democrat because Freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

7. I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

6. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

5. I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies through abortion so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

4. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

3. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the democrats see fit.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

1. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted where the sun doesn't shine that it is unlikely that I'll ever have another point of view.

"But to expend millions … is unworthy the charge, and is using [our children] with the utmost cruelty; because it is leaving them the great work to do, and a debt upon their backs from which they derive no advantage. Such a thought is unworthy a man of honor, and is the true characteristic of a narrow heart and a peddling politician." (Thomas Paine)

Can witchcraft make lib-dem-commies disappear?

I loved the show "Bewitched" with Elizabeth Montgomery. She was funny, beautiful and could do magic-witchy tricks when she twitched her nose. I watched many an episode after grade school in the 70s every afternoon on public TV. I tried twitching my nose in the mirror like her but I never mastered it. My mom even had her same hair do.

Back in 1692, there were witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts. Perhaps you've heard about it? 19 people were hung, 1 pressed to death or 30 or so died in prison. Lovely, huh? More facts on what happened, what started it and ended these trials at Salem Witch Trials.

The common the term "witch hunt" arose from those trials: "An investigation carried out ostensibly to uncover subversive activities but actually used to harass and undermine those with differing views."

... & this is what "comedian" (does he still classify as one?) Bill Maher is doing: a "witch hunt" (literally!). He (along with dippy Karl Rove) is trying to make Delaware Republican candidate Christine O'Donnell look bad - because in 1999 she was on his show and said she 'dabbled' in witchcraft (she didn't like).

So what?

So if she did try it - or even loved it and is currently a practicing Wiccan? (umm she isn't but that is beside the point)

So what? Hasn't America evolved now to LOVE witches?! I sure do...
Hey, is the "Wizard of Oz" still a popular move Mr. Maher?

How about the long running broadway show "Wicked"? (I haven't seen it but want to)
How about Halloween? It is a national USA "HOLIDAY" on all calendars, isn't it?! Don't get me started on how popular Halloween witch costumes are in the USA! Very!

I know one friend who is a Wiccan, I've read about it and Paganism... & I personally have no problem with any of it. Neither does most of America - judging by the popularity of Halloween alone. Just grow up Maher... Your lame Alinsky attack is...well... lame. (In any case, O'Donnell has responded to this nonsense.)

Rush also reminds us what the 'Democrats' DABBLED in (which seem slightly more serious than any form of witchcraft IMO):

"What have the Democrats dabbled in? Let's see, Democrat Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale, even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show. Nancy Pelosi's dabbled in ripping off taxpayers by using military aircraft for personal needs. Obama has dabbled in infanticide. Joe Biden has dabbled in plagiarism. Obama's good friend, Bill Ayers, has dabbled in domestic terrorism. Valerie Jarrett, Obama's best female friend, has dabbled in communism. I mean Obama's dabbled in cocaine, for crying out loud. He even wrote about it in one of his books that he dabbled in cocaine out there."

I got your dabble here, Maher... Shall I explain my fondness for "I dream of Genie" next? I WISH all you Democrats away, vaporized, erased: * *twinkle* *nose twitch* *twinkle* * ...

... (did it work? ...aaw, damn...)

Mark Levin explains conservativism clearly

RIGHT ON Mr. Levin:

Kudlow is bullish on the TEA revolution

Bull market (up)? or Bear market (down)?

The American markets often reflect the mood or confidence of business investors.

Larry Kudlow thinks the TEA party revolution means a bullish market:

"In fact, until recently, I’ve been advising people to take profits in the stock market, rather than buy-and-hold. You should keep your money before the Obama IRS takes it from you.

But following the tea-party primary victories in Delaware, New York, and New Hampshire this week, I’m once again getting energized.

Free-market capitalism is on the comeback trail. That’s one of the key tea-party messages. And make no mistake about it: The free-market power of the tea-party political revolt is totally bullish for stocks and the economy.

In short, this is a revolution.

The political elites in both parties don’t get it. Nor do the mainstream media. But the tea-party movement is stopping Obamanomics dead in its tracks. And it will overturn the Keynesian big-government planning effort now in full force in our nation’s capital. The tea parties are Reaganism reincarnate, and then some.

It’s all there in the Contract from America: Limited government, individual liberty, economic freedom. Defund Obamacare. No tax-and-nationalize energy scheme. Stop the tax hikes and move to a flat-tax system. No special favors and subsidies. No crony capitalism.

Oh, and let me underscore the tea-party revolt against runaway government spending and debt-creation. No TARP. No stimulus. No Obamacare. No Bailout Nation for GM, Fannie, Freddie, and AIG. Instead of federal spending running up to 25, 26, or 27 percent of GDP, look for our new tea-party representatives to move it back to 20 percent of the economy, or even less.

There’s a great story in Friday’s Wall Street Journal called “Tea Party’s Rise Gives Business Pause.” The thrust is that big businesses and their K Street lobbyists are worried that special tax breaks and subsidies for Wall Street, timber, fast food, road building, energy, farming, autos (such as cash for clunkers for the car lobby), and housing (including homebuyer tax credits for the realtor and homebuilder lobbies) will be blown away by the new tea-party representatives. Well, they should be worried."

American Thinker: the constitution is a contract: learn it

Important from American Thinker:

"It is important for our citizens to know what the Constitution is in order to know what the federal government is. The federal government is not supreme, but rather a creation of the states.

The federal government should be limited in scope and effect by the Constitution, because that is the document by which it was created. It is a truly bizarre notion that the creature of a document has the ability to alter the instrument of its own creation. If such a thing were possible or true, the federal government would have been a Frankenstein's monster created by the Founding Fathers. It is clear from the earliest writings that no such thing was intended.

It is important that the legislators know that the federal government is not supreme, for it is the creation of the states for the benefit of the states.

It is important that the Supreme Court abandon its progressive notion that the Constitution is a "living" document. It is merely (one is hesitant to use that word describing such a noble document) a contract, an operating agreement.

It is important that when our elected representatives take an oath to uphold the Constitution, they understand and know to the very depths of their being what the meaning and place of the Constitution is.

It is important that our elected and appointed representatives know and believe in the sanctity of an oath. Too many now clearly have no notion of the meaning of the oath, giving it no more than passing consideration if, in fact, they consider it at all. This is why the Founding Fathers were men of faith. Although it is not impossible to find agnostics and atheists who take an oath seriously, I submit that it is far more likely to find God-fearing men who will be bound by an oath.

The Constitution is not terribly difficult to read. It is not written in arcane and ancient language. It was written for ordinary citizens to understand. Accordingly, the Constitution should be taught at the earliest possible point in school.

If you and a group of associates formed a business partnership and selected or hired a manager, whether from among your number or an outsider, you would demand and expect that the manager follow the partnership agreement to the letter, would you not? And if he failed to do so, would you not fire him?

Why not do the same with our elected representatives?

A link to the Cornell text of the U.S. Constitution is provided here."

movie "Fire From the Heartland" conservative women on the march

I am with these women 1000%

"The first-ever film to tell the entire story of the conservative woman in her own words, "Fire from the Heartland" is a powerful statement about America at a crossroads and the women who have awakened to the crisis. With role models such as Clare Boothe Luce, Margaret Thatcher, and Phyllis Schlafly as inspiration, these women are the unintended consequence of the liberal feminist movement.

Tracing the long history of the many conservative women who have been the backbone of this great nation, from the founding mothers of our Republic to today's "Mama Grizzlies," this powerful and compelling documentary honors the self-made American woman.

Activists, politicians and commentators such as Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, S.E. Cupp, Dana Loesch, Michelle Easton, Sonnie Johnson, Jenny Beth Martin, Michelle Moore, Jamie Radtke, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, and Congresswomen Cynthia Lummis, Jean Schmidt, and Michele Bachmann share their emotional stories of hardship and triumph in their fight for freedom. These women leaders are fanning the flames of liberty across the nation.

Written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by David N. Bossie, the team that made the critically acclaimed film "Generation Zero" that focused on the financial meltdown and the rise of the Tea Party, "Fire from the Heartland" is a must-see for every citizen concerned with the direction of our country and will stir a fire in the hearts of all Americans."

Crickey, now Australia even has a TEA party

Check out the Aus T.E.A. party
USA T.E.A. parties are going gang-busters: they are everywhere and nowhere. Awesome! There is no single leader. The American public is fully awake and engaged.
So what is the T.E.A. party IMPACT so far? This week's example #1: replacing 4-term RINO Republican candidate Castle with new comer Christine O'Donnell in this week's Republican Delaware senate primary. "The architect" (huh?) Karl Rove has bashed O'Donnell. (Sorry Karl, you're Washington insider elitist side is showing...) Americans don't believe the press & they are tired of elitist trying to pick the other elitists for canditates. We.The.People will be thinking and deciding for themselves thank you very much - state by state. Yeaaaaah.... More examples:
Example #2: a Republican (albeit a moderate/liberal-ish one) named Scott Brown swept in and "stole" the "people's seat" previously held by Teddy Kennedy. (WOW and "they" said that couldn't happen, but Massachusetts citizens felt differently...)
Example #3: Alaska Republican inside-establishment Murkowski? Beat by new-comer Joe Miller... HA! Sarah Palin supported Miller and people listened...
Yes, sports fans: old, establish, elitiest, go-along get-along, wishy-washy and way-too-liberal Republican-in-name-only candidates will no longer cut it in America.
Besides America inspired Israeli, Dutch, Italian and Moscow T.E.A. parties: now even an Australian T.E.A. (Taxed Enough Already) party has been formed! Why? The Australian reports:
"The Australian T.E.A. Party will be targeting pre-selections across the country and heavily promotes its links to "our friends" in the United States.Reluctant spokesman David Goodridge - "just call me the website editor" - says the grassroots movement has no plans to register as a political party, won’t stand candidates and won’t accept politicians as members."
“Basically it’s based around... three general propositions," Mr Goodridge said.

"What should be the role of the government in the economy, what should be the role of government in people’s lives and do you believe that you can spend your money better than government?" The T.E.A. Party in Australia announces on its website that it is a "worldwide movement united for free markets, fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited small governments and individual freedom".
Good on ya, mates...!

Lebanese Christian tells her riveting truth about Islam

Riveting... please WATCH... these are from iOwnTheWorld (and youtubes-ies of course) a 2006 account from Brigitte Gabriel.

"Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America"


Did you know Hamas has cells ALL across America in over 40 USA states?! (... just wonderful, eh)

Did you know radical Islam is taught through MOSQUES?!

Did you know Saudi Arabia supplies these mosques in America with books on how to "deal' with non-muslims in the country (USA) they are infiltrating and it is their duty to install Islam?!

Did you know 15-20% of the over 1 BILLION muslims are RADICAL Islamists?!

Americans won't be bullied

Americans won't be bullied.
That is the hard learned (and still learning!) silver lining in the PC-insane cloud hanging over the NYC ground zero victory mosque discussion.
The GZM imam is just an insane bully threatening America to get his way:
"Imam Rauf threatens islamic radical attack if we don't build ground zero mosque
Wow. Did he just lecture us on Larry King about separation of church and state? When he and his co-radical islamists want Sharia law? Where no churches or synagogues are allowed in Mecca? Did he really say that?And did he go on to say that he is "concerned" that radical islamists will perceive that islam is under attack if the mosque on ground zero is not built, and that would be a risk to our "national security"? Really??? How dare he!"
Mosque right there? Ain't gonna happen.
How about you muslims prove YOUR tolerance by building a 13-story multi-religious building with churches and synagogues in your Mecca? Oh, no non-muslims allowed? Where is YOUR tolerance? America is already tolerant enough, thanks... He or any other muslims who want Shariah instead of the constitution will just have to go back to the muslim countries they came from.
America is awake and learning all about Shariah.
America will re-learn its proud history.
American exceptionalism will prevail.
"As we have witnessed in Cartoon Rage, Pope Rage, Commode Quran Rage, “Fitna” Rage, More Cartoon Rage, etc., “respecting” Islam in fact means exempting this religious-political ideology from “slander,” “defamation,” any mockery, criticism, analysis, resistance, denunciation, or rejection — or else. And we all know what “or else” means — or else murder and mayhem will convulse some region where Muslims live, leaving behind a permanent threat of death to non-repentant “offenders.” "
"What Islam is demanding, then, is a separate speech code for itself. This demand is manifested at the highest diplomatic levels in a strategic campaign by the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the Islamic bloc of 57 nations that functions in the international arena as an Islamic supra-state. The OIC has long been maneuvering to bring international law into conformance with Islamic law by prohibiting “defamation of religions” — namely Islam — at the United Nations."
Ain't gonna happen. America won't be bullied.
Good comment from Moonbattery:
"The whole point is that Islam is a violent, murderous, territorial ideology bent on world domination, one which tortures and kills people who disagree with them, and I mean REAL torture, not that wimpy stuff that you try to use to demonize the US, one which has invariably set up a brutal theocratic dictatorship in every country it has taken, and you say WE are the ones that need to be more TOLERANT?! Freedom is not a suicide pact, dumbass, they don't have a "freedom" to demand that we pander to their every whim, anymore than a person has any "right" to demand a service without payment or take another person's property. Believe it or not, Christians have rights too, and Muslims have a sordid record of trampling on those rights, brutally."
From commentor Stan at Gateway Pundit:
"If we stop the Mosque from being built, Muslims will get angry and attack us.
If we allow the Mosque to be built, Muslims will get angry and attack us.
If we move the Mosque to another location, Muslims will get angry and attack us.
If we do anything to the Koran, Muslims will get angry and attack us.If we say anything about the abuses of Christians and Jews in the world, Muslims will get angry and attack us.
If we complain about the treatment of women and gays in the Middle East, Muslims will get angry and attack us.
If we insist on having religious freedom in this country and worship as we please, Muslims will get angry and attack us.
If we refuse to submit to Islam, Muslims will get angry and attack us.
Does anyone see a pattern here?"

Sure, current POTUS and congress might all be milque-toast appeasers, but not the majority of American people.
Nope... no victory mosque will be built.
Shariah law will not be allowed.
However: America has to get out of Shariah FINANCE as well. A.S.A.P.! From A.McCarthy at National Review:
"The financial jihad has now achieved its greatest coup so far: It has co-opted the U.S. government as a partner. In fact, if you would like to see a contributor to the jihad, have a look in the mirror. Thanks to the Obama administration, every one of us is complicit. The bailout bonanza made each of us an owner of American Insurance Group (AIG). Under the stewardship of its real CEO, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, AIG proudly runs the world’s most lavishly funded sharia-compliant insurance business — and it is desperately trying to convince a federal court in Michigan that no one should have a problem with that."
Still more work to do America! The fight against muslim jihad, started in 1805... continues

Achmed the dead terrorist

Geert Wilder speech at 911 remembrance rally

Part of Geert Wilders' speech at the freedom rally at ground zero in NYC on Sept 11, 2010:

"I have been told that this day nine years ago was just such a beautiful day -- and remember, or try to remember, or try to imagine the sounds which were heard here on this spot under this same blue sky exactly nine years ago.

The sound of shock, the sound of destruction, the sound of panic, the sound of pain, the sound of terror.

Did New York deserve this? Did America deserve this? Did the West deserve this?

What, my friends, would you say to people who argue that New York, that America, that the West had itself to blame for those horrible sounds? There are people in this city who argue this. And they are angry because we are gathered here today to commemorate, to make a stand, to draw the line.

Among those lost were people from 55 nations, people of every religion and every persuasion. No place on earth had a more multi-ethnic, multi-racial, and multi-lingual workforce than New York’s proud towers.

That is exactly why they were targeted. They constituted an insult to those who hold that there can be no peaceful cooperation among people and nations without submission to Sharia; to those who wish to impose the legal system of Islam on the rest of us."

Good speech. Read the rest at Atlas Shrugs.

More pix here from the rally.

To the shores of Tripoli, fighting jihad since 1805

Get the book
The oldest of the U.S Armed Forces songs, the USMC hymn says:

From the halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli,
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea.

First to fight for right and freedom,
And to keep our honor clean,
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marines.

So what does "to the shores ot Tripoli" mean anyway?

When America was a new nation, Britain didn't feel much like protecting her Atlantic shipping trade routes any more. (Britain's existing response was to pay off the pirates = appeasement!).

When muslim pirates then turned their eyes and barbaric savagery on American ships: America finally chose to fight. President Thomas Jefferson refused to pay the pirates... and sure seems America has been fighting against jihad in various form ever since - even today.

Civilized nations AND America has been fighting Muslim pirates for hundreds of years - with America's first "official" war against this terror started in Barbary war in 1805.

"The Barbary War -- the first American war against Libya -- was the first war waged by the United States outside national boundaries after gaining independence and unification of the country.

The four Barbary States of North Africa - Morocco, Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli - had plundered seaborne commerce for centuries. Surviving by blackmail, they received great sums of money, ships, and arms yearly from foreign powers in return for allowing the foreigners to trade in African ports and sail unmolested through the Barbary waters. They demanded tribute money, seized ships, and held crews for ransom or sold them into slavery.

During the Crusades (1095-1295), Muslim pirates operating from bases in North Africa had plundered ships carrying Crusaders and pilgrims and sold many Christians into slavery. By the sixteenth century, Hapsburg Spain and the Ottoman Turks were pitted in a struggle for supremacy in the Mediterranean. Piracy, which for both Christians and Muslims was a dimension of the conflict between the opposing powers, lured adventurers from around the Mediterranean to the Maghribi coastal towns and islands. Among them was Khair ad Din, called Barbarossa, who in 1510 seized Algiers on the pretext of defending it from the Spaniards. Barbarossa subsequently recognized the suzerainty of the Ottoman sultan over the territory that he controlled and was in turn appointed the sultan's regent in the Maghrib. The term "Barbary" derives from Barbarosa ["red beard"].

By the end of the 18th Century the effectiveness of Tripoli's corsairs had long since deteriorated, but their reputation alone was enough to prompt European maritime states to pay the tribute extorted by the pasha to ensure safe passage of their shipping through Tripolitanian waters.

American merchant ships, no longer covered by British protection, were seized by Barbary pirates in the years after United States independence, and American crews were enslaved. In 1799 the United States agreed to pay $18,000 a year in return for a promise that Tripoli-based corsairs would not molest American ships. Similar agreements were made at the time with the rulers of Morocco, Algiers, and Tunis.

In May, 1801, the United States refused to succumb to the increasing demands of the Pacha of Tripoli; in return, the Pacha declared war against the States. While Tripoli was not a strong power and little effort was necessary to watch and blockade it, the fear was that the other Barbary powers would join against the United States. The United States sent naval squadrons into the Mediterranean under the slogan of "Millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute!" Under the leadership of Commodores Richard Dale and Edward Preble, the Navy blockaded the enemy coast, bombarded his shore fortresses, and engaged in close, bitterly contested gunboat actions.

On 16 February 1804 LT Stephen Decatur led 74 volunteers into Tripoli harbor to burn the captured American frigate The Philadelphia. British Admiral Lord Nelson called the raid "the most daring act of the age". Boatswains Mate Ruben James volunteered to go on the raiding party. James was seriously wounded during hand-to-hand combat. Despite his wounds, or perhaps because of them, James put himself between an attacking pirate and the commander of that raid, Decatur, who remained uninjured thanks to James. Ruben James recovered from his wounds and continued to proudly serve his Navy for another 32 years. Lieutenant Stephen Decatur's exploit in destroying the captured frigate USS Philadelphia, and Captain Richard Somers attempt with the fire-ship USS Intrepid to blow up enemy vessels in Tripoli harbor, set valorous examples for the young naval service.

In 1805 Marines stormed the Barbary pirates' harbor fortress stronghold of Derna (Tripoli), commemorated in the Marine Corp Hymn invocation "To the Shores of Tripoli." First Lieutenant O'Bannon is remembered for heroism in the battle for Derna. O'Bannon's Marines were the first U.S. forces to hoist the flag over territory in the Old World. The "Mameluke" sword, carried by Marines officers today, was presented to O'Bannon in 1805."

So that is what "the shores of Tripoli" means... a reminder about the need for the American Navy and US Marine Corps and the battles in 1805 to protect American ships in foreign waters... and a reminder America fights for freedom and against jihad, pirates and all barbaric oppresssion and evil. The fight continues - Ooo rah!

Sept 11, 2001 Islamic jihad continues 9 years later

...In remembrance of
NY World Trade Center, the Pentagon
& Flight 93 : where America started to fight back
yet 9 years later...
stealth jihad against America continues...
About the buildings: "Ground was broken on August 5th, 1966. The project began with excavation six stories down to bedrock where the towers’ footings would stand. Crews dug around the PATH train tubes within the site, removing one million cubic yards of earth that would eventually form Battery Park City.
Site preparations were vast and included an elaborate method of foundation work for which a “bathtub” had to be built 65 feet below grade. The bathtub was made of a bentonite (absorbent clay) slurry wall meant to keep out groundwater and the Hudson River. Tie-backs were inserted through the wall and anchored at an angle in the earth behind them.
The foundation construction was just a fraction of many innovations masterminded by Yamasaki and team. Among them were the Twin Towers’ high-speed elevators, sky lobbies, and a “hollow tube” building model that distributed weight from the inner core across floor trusses to the exterior’s closely spaced steel columns. The load-bearing exterior also served as bracing against wind. Floor trusses and exterior-wall panels were prefabricated before being lifted and bolted into place, speeding construction.

The first tenants moved into 1 WTC, the north tower, in 1970, and two years later into 2 WTC. The Port Authority’s construction costs totaled more than $900 million."

the History channel has videos from lower Manhattan
... New York Times covered the attack

... 5 year WTC memorial "tribute in light"
very moving to a still grieving America
The WTC memorial planned for NYC:
... is still being built!

The WTC Falling Man was a stark image from the day...
... discussed in a documentary in 2006
... suicide planes also hit the pentagon Sept 11, 2001:

at the newly fortified Pentagon:
beams disovered on WTC site after the attack

GZM imam directly threatens violence against USA

Coming to an American protest near you?
This is "rage boy", a muslim activist, who's image you may have seen. "...Bhat, the man behind the angry face, said he could take any kind of criticism in his stride.

"Whatever I do, I do for Allah and the Prophet Mohammed," said Bhat, who admits to having been an armed militant between 1991 and 1994 with a pro-Pakistan rebel group.

"I can't resist injustice. I protest for all the oppressed Muslims in Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan,"
he told AFP.

Oppressed? Probably.... but guess what dude... Islam is the ideology which is suppressing you!
This is what muslims do to advance their global jihad: threaten violence. Islam is encroaching in Europe, around the world and they have their sights on America. THAT is why they want the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. From Gateway Pundit: The GZM imam has now directly THREATENED America.
What big BABIES these iddle widdle muslims are... they have temper tantrums to get their way. And their way is Shariah.

The muslims want Sharia law imposed around the ENTIRE world.
They want their honor killings of women and stoning, too!
Below are just a few gruesome exampls of what muslims do in the name of their ideology.
There might be muslim individuals who are moderate, but there is NO moderate Islam:

What a nice "peaceful" ideology, eh? Is this what you want America? Now is the time to FIGHT the encroachment of SHARIAH! No more appeasement.

America's Right Network has launched!

Right Network has finally launched in the U.S.A.

No 'summer of recovery' Joe as USA faces epic fall failure

From NiceDeb, American summer of recovery? ... ummm... not so much

MORE stimulus for 'infrastructure' planned... discussed at Breitbart. Umm... so more roads fixes the job shortage, huh?

From AT, EPIC FALL FAILURE begins (for ... Dems at the polls at least Nov 2nd!):

Sep 7th from Heritage:

"But spending is just one side of President Obama’s economic prescription for the country. Not only is he advocating another $50 billion in spending on top of the $814 billion in economic stimulus spending he has wasted so far, he is also advocating for a $921 billion tax hike set to take effect this January 1, 2011.

The administration wants us to believe that this massive tax hike will have no effect on our economic recovery. But that is just not so.

Raising taxes on work and investment would mean less work and less investment and can be regarded only as an overtly hostile anti-jobs policy.

That is just one of the myths exposed by Heritage analyst JD Fosters’ new paper: Obama Tax Hikes Defended by Myths and Straw Man Arguments.

Foster also details:

•Myth: Small businesses would be only marginally impacted by higher taxes rates.

Fact: Successful, growing, hiring small businesses are especially targeted by higher tax rates. Many Americans report business income from hobbies, sideline businesses, etc., thus inflating the number of so-called “small businesses.” True small businesses have employees and machinery, offer goods and services widely, and are far fewer in number. Yet they earn most of the small business income that would be subject to the higher rates.

•Myth: Tax rates matter little in the long run.

Fact: Tax rates have their most powerful effects on long-run growth and wages. The effects of tax changes take time to manifest fully because major business investments typically require extended evaluation, planning, and implementation. Similarly, while workers respond quickly to changes in tax rates, a full response takes time as they adjust their spending and budgets accordingly.

•Myth: The country cannot afford not to raise taxes.

Fact: The problem is spending, not revenues. The country cannot afford to let current spending levels continue. Taxes as a share of the economy will soon exceed the historical average. The current and projected unsustainable deficits are due to Obama’s spending surge, not a shortage of revenue."

Saying NO is important & an update from the Nug

HA HA HA... cartoon from Bubba at Facts Are Stubborn Things
John Fricke at AT has a great list of why the answer is NO. Children are running the show in Washington supported by 20% (waning?) of the public who calls themselves "liberal". Time for the other 80% and TRUE leaders to say NO. Why? What do I mean?:

"The "party of no" is meant, and should be clearly understood, as the party of "no, you will not." Yes, Republicans will come out boldly to answer to the charge that they should stand for, and not just against, something. But clarity again: conservatives are standing for something simply using the word "no."

"If a child lives in a home where the house rules are not enforced firmly, the child believes it has the authority to determine, to some level, his or her own boundaries. Frankly, that last sentence defines leftist parenting. Principled adults use "no" firmly to establish that there is a solid foundation and that nothing will be allowed to weaken it. This administration has sought to "transform" this nation by "change" through reworking our foundational support. It's the one true point of clarity from the left. And those hammer blows have been met by adults who are saying, firmly, "no."

"No" stands for something. It stands for the intentions of the founders and the rock of the republic. "No" stands for America -- for her ideals, her world leadership, her strength, and her light."

"The left simply cannot wrap its collective brain ("collective" is the proper word) around the concept of "the party of no." It's somewhat effective when conservatives fire back with "we are not the party of no; we are the party of hell no," and while it gets a point home strongly, it also reinforces the false belief of the left as to what the "party of no" truly is."


  • No, you will not nationalize health care or manufacturing.

  • No, you will not mortgage our children's and grandchildren's futures for any reason, let alone paying off your supporters.

  • No, you will not place limits on media that serve only to silence criticism against you.

  • No, you will not engage in a foreign policy that apologizes for our actions or undermines our allies.

  • No, you will not use the Department of Justice as a political weapon.

  • No, you will not view our Constitution as amendable at will by a handpicked judiciary without our consent.

  • No, you will not cripple our industries with federal regulations designed to promote the wishful desires of the left.

  • No, you will not play politics with our security to attempt to appeal to groups that will be beneficial to your electoral desires.

  • No, you will not transform our great nation into a lesser one.

Ted Nugent has an good update from his travels, says he appreciates Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin (and many others) and points out "...the heartbreak and frustration with Fedzilla refusing to respect "we the people," the anger at the runaway corruption and abuse of power from the top down, and the rude, soulless arrogance displayed by elected officials violating the fundamental pillars of the American Way are palpable and offensive on every level."

"November is right around the corner. Thank God, for the Obama tailspin cannot be sustained any longer. The vicious abuse of power and corruption must come to a screeching halt as soon as possible if we are to stop the well-orchestrated economic hemorrhaging and the further deterioration of our foreign policy nightmare."

Mr. Nugent urges "(everyone) to continue to turn up the heat, charge forth with increased vigor and confidence and spread the good word far and wide like never before. Engage, educate and recruit an increasing army of "we the people" Tea Party warriors, by convincing your families, co-workers, friends, neighbors, fellow churchgoers, your hunting buddies, your BBQ buddies, your bowling buddies, everybody, everywhere, every time, every day, we can and must take back America from the disconnected Fedzillacrats and bureaucrats, starting in November and continuing ever after.
