Freedom Flotilla: the audacity of the infidel

David Swindle at Pajamas Media reports a legal suit might prevent the next gaza flotilla from sailing: "The logic is simple. Hamas is recognized by the United States government as a terrorist organization, thus it is a crime to provide material support for them. The Free Gaza Movement (FGM) is preparing another international “freedom flotilla” which seeks to deliver supplies to Hamas-controlled Gaza, bypassing the established channels that Israel has set up to allow the flow of humanitarian goods into the region. Therefore, any company which collaborates with the flotilla in any way is aiding a terrorist group and is vulnerable to prosecution."

Meanwhile, a new press release from SOIA at Reuters announces "Democracy Collapses in Europe: EU Cancels SIOA/SIOE Free Speech Rally -- Freedom From Jihad Flotilla to Launch on 9/11" (Tue Jun 28, 2011 1:59pm EDT):

"The Audacity of the Infidel will launch on September 11, 2011 from the New York harbor closest to the World Trade Center site. On board will be freedom fighters from all over the world, united in defense of human rights and human dignity against Islamic supremacist oppression."

Why a freedom flotilla?  Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs explains "The SIOA/SIOE Freedom From Jihad aid flotilla, is intended to be a direct response to the capitulation of French, European, and American authorities to Leftist and Islamic supremacist forces of oppression and injustice. It is set to launch after our national Rally for Freedom at Ground Zero on the tenth anniversary of the Islamic jihad attacks that murdered three thousand Americans."

"The mission is the first attempt by free citizens anywhere in the world to come to the aid of non-Muslims persecuted for their faith in Muslim countries. It is a direct response to the heavily-armed Leftist/jihadist flotilla that attempted to violate Israel’s legal maritime blockade of Hamas-ruled Gaza on May 31, 2010. In that incident, Turkish jihadists onboard one ship attacked Israeli soldiers without provocation; nine jihadists were killed in the battle. The Freedom From Jihad Flotilla is also a response to the Audacity of Hope flotilla that is soon to set sail to continue the jihad against Israel, with plans to use chemical weapons against Israeli forces.

The Freedom From Jihad Flotilla will offer aid to persecuted Christians, Hindus, and other non-Muslims, and call upon the international community to recognize Muslim persecution of non-Muslims as a violation of international law, to be punished with strict economic sanctions and other appropriate action.

The first stop will be Greece, in recognition of the Greek victims of jihad in Anatolia for well over a thousand years. The Freedom From Jihad Flotilla will then sail along the Turkish coast, where speakers will pay homage to the millions of victims of the Armenian and Greek genocides in Turkey.

The next stop will be Egypt. All Coptic Christians seeking to escape Islamic oppression will be saved. Subsequent stops will include Nigeria, Pakistan, Indonesia, and other areas where Christians are facing persecution from Muslims. The freedom flotilla will also include stops in Bangladesh, for Hindus facing Muslim persecution, and Thailand, for Buddhists facing the same persecution."

UK's Delingpole and over 4 thousand comments

James Delinpole is an excellent writer over at the UK's Telegraph.  His recent article Frogs, scorpions, greens, lies is pretty good.  Snippet about the lies and spin by AGW warmists:

"Why? It’s a “why” that applies equally well to almost everything to do with the modern environmental movement. Why, if the science is so “settled” and the case for putting the global economy on a war footing to “combat climate change” so strong, do they keep needing to tweak and exaggerate their message?   Why, as Greenpeace’s former head Gerd Leipold once famously excused  his organisation when it was caught out telling porkie pies on the extent of the Greenland ice sheet melt, do they have to“emotionalise the issue”? After all, surely if the issue is really what they say it is it wouldn’t need “emotionalising” with spin and lies and exaggeration and disingenuous camera footage: it would be plain for all to see and we’d all do something about it."  Read the rest here.  

In his Frogs commentary, Delingpole notes "Phelim McAleer co-author – with Ann McElhinney – of the Not Evil Just Wrong documentary debunking CAGW." Phelim and Ann are activists you should know about and pay attention to.

But a recent post from Mr. Delingpole's really ruffled some feathers with over 4000 comments!  

From the title alone, you might guess whose hackles were raised "The science is settled: US liberals really are the dumbest creatures on the planet" ... think that conclusion might anger some? Well, sorry, the truth hurts sometimes doesn't it, lefties.  James asks "why it is that liberal-lefties manage to be so utterly wrong about everything.  “Because they’re stupid,” said a libertarian friend of mine.
“Oh come on, not all of them surely? A bit misguided, maybe but…” I protested.
“No really they’re stupid because they’re not interested in facts. They just want to construct their pretty little narrative about the world, regardless of whether or not it has any bearing on reality. And then they want to dump it on us. And ruin our lives. So not just stupid but evil too.” HA HA ha James... no wonder you have 4000 comments!  You've probably ruined a few rainbows and unicorn summits with this kind of truthful writing.  
Keep it up, mate.

In 2010, PETA killed 94% of animals in their care

PETA kills animals

I admit I used to be a PETA supporter.  In the last 10 years, they have marched steadily to the extreme far communist, green, animals-are-better-than-people left.  GatewayPundit posts PETAs latest stunt: they want to put up billboards equating microwaving a dead piece of pork - to a microwaved baby killed by her own mother.  Obviously the mother has a mental issue. Normal people don't microwave their 6 week old infants to death. Horrible. Sick.  But not the same as heating a piece of dead pig.  The pig is ALREADY DEAD you PETA nitwits. 

Pigs, cows, chickens currently exist on this planet as a source of food for humans.  If humans did not farm these animals, do you think they would still be on earth in such large numbers?  There are wild boar, bison.  That would be it.  Chickens can't fly so they would have died out of natural predation - say by wolves or their descendants: dogs.  Or other carnivores.  Flightless birds barely exist down here in NZ where there aren't any wolves or other large carnivores.  NZ has stoats, weasels and possums.  The NZ kiwi and kakapo are examples of endangered NZ birds because of predation.  If NZ farmed these birds, they'd be abundant - just like chickens!

I am a big animal lover.  We have 3 cats and our new Basenji dog. I was a vegetarian for awhile, but now my health is poorly as I have a problem with very low iron. I blame 8 years of vegetarianism for my ill health.

According to PETA Kills Animals, in 2010, PETA killed 94% of animals in their care. PETA is now just another corrupt leftist org full of hypocrits. Farm animals should be treated humanely with respect but they are destined to feed people. That is their purpose.

haha! "More B.O. than anyone can stand" from AT

5 ways to eliminate body odor: (AKA:  1 vote out Dems 2 go to TEA parties 3 vet a candidate 4 follow the constitution and 5 quit drinking leftist propoganda koolaid !!!)

Hilarious commentary over at American Thinker by Ralph Alter called "More B.O. than anyone can stand", snippets:

"America has gotten a steady whiff of B.O. emanating from the White House and its environs for two and a half years now, and even those notoriously asnomic leftists closest to our foundering President are holding their noses."

"The fact of the matter is that if the election were to be held today, Obama would lose by 5 points to your mother-in-law, by 7 points to Muammar Ghaddafy, and possibly by double digits to Gary Busey. David Axelrod might think it's still cool to like Obama, but who's taking advice on coolness from a guy with an Hitler comb-over and mustache? Check the photos -- they appear to have separated at birth. Maybe the people watching Jersey Shore still think it's cool to be stupid, but they aren't very likely to be able to carry the election for Obie Done."

Go read the whole thing... this writer is spot on, Washington stinks all right... I can smell it here in NZ

who are the "stupid" ones again?

Passing along the excellent video from iOwnTheWorld which has been picked up by several promininent conservative blogs & news sites... So who really are the "stupid" ones again?!  Watch and learn...

thoughts on a deep orange volcanic ash sunrise

I was recently in the Christchurch area for a weekend.  We flew down to pick up our new Basenji Kiki in Pleasant Point and we stayed overnight at our friend's house in Waimate.  It is the middle of winter down here in NZ and temperatures on the south island of New Zealand was noticeably cooler.  I wore a cotton sweatshirt, a rain coat and a scarf.  This garb was not sufficient and I was dang chilly.  
Sunrise on Sunday morning Jun 12th was clear and gorgeous.  Check out the colors!  The high atmosphere near NZ had some ash content all the way from across the globe from a Chilean volcano blast June 4, 2011.  I've read this week some scientists who track and observe sun spot activity are worried declining sun spot activity will mean cooling earth temperatures.  More evidence man has NO impact on global warming or global cooling?  What will the warmists do... their religion is based on falsified data and unproved theories. Will they ever grasp reality?  The beautiful blue planet we live on for a few years dishes out warmth, cold, snow, vocanoes, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes ... and man still survives.  Man adapts.  Man does not impact global temperatures.  Man has a general idea of what tomorrow's local weather will be but is never very accurate and in fact is wrong a lot.  The AGW believers are just that - holding on to a religious belief their actions impact global weather patterns.  Explain to me in a coherent factual argument exactly how paying higher taxes will prevent the next Chilean volcanic blast caused by lava pressure and shifts deep in the earth's mantle?
I'll sip on a cup of lovely NZ cafe mocha... or maybe just a hot chocolate.  I'll remain happy I'm not living directly in a natural disaster area - like the continual earthquake zone in Christchurch or directly in the path of volcanic ash.  I'll hope the 50 something dormant Auckland volcanoes remain dormant.  I'll live my small life the best I can and talk about truth.  Lies like AGW hold no interest to me unless it is to expose them as lies. Life has ups, downs but is very short... enjoy it while you're here.  Find the truth and live lie free.

busy week with new baby in the house: Kiki

Here are a few shots of our new dog - a 2 year old tri colored, full breed Basenji girl from a breeder in Pleasant Point, NZ. We flew down to Christchurch last week to pick her up.  We had a Basenji (Sheela) for 10 years so we know and love the breed.  See last photo: "Kiki" was a covergirl for Apr 2010 NZ Dog World magazine!  She is a wee cheeky thing...and we think she is darn cute.  Acclimating her to our house, 3 cats and our schedule has been a bit up and down this week. She was used to living with 10 other Basenjis so our house is very quiet.  We don't want to get separation anxiety so I worked from home last week to baby sit her.  We put in an outdoor dog run yesterday for 3 hours... whooo boy, you should have heard the periodic yowling and funky Basenji crying and howls. OK, she doesn't like to be by herself... but we have to work sometimes, girlfriend, you'll have to adjust to a new life - sometimes you'll be alone and outside for awhile.  Don't worry, we'll always be back to give you food and cuddles.  She is trained to sleep in her dog crate at night - so that is good. Couple nights of 3am have-to-go-wee times though.  Luckily I am a light sleeper... welcome to our family Kiki.

AT: economics for babies

Christopher Chantrill writes Economics for Babies at American Thinker. Tid bit:

"Cut, Baby, Cut. Our liberal friends are convinced that, given sufficiently rigorous policy analysis and sufficiently inspired political leadership, they can design and build the bridge to the future with government programs. But the truth is that government spending, all government spending, is a waste, starting with the Pentagon and defense spending. But, wasteful as they are, some government programs are necessary. Alexander Hamilton laid out the case for a national defense in the early Federalist Papers. Almost all other government programs are pure waste; their only purpose is to buy votes for politicians with your money. Alas, they do more than that: they fray the cords of community. When people have to work together in voluntary cooperation to secure retirement income, health care, and education, they build community. When the government does it, the people fall to squabbling and grabbing their piece of the pie. So the only thing to do with government is to cut.

Grow, Baby, Grow. Our liberal friends are convinced that government must invest in the infrastructure to build "public goods." That is the rationale behind President Obama's crazed push for fast trains, clean green energy, and the rest of the liberal crony capitalist agenda. But almost all "big ideas" for government investment have ended in tears, from government credit allocation to government energy policy. There's a very simple reason for this. Politicians are experts in winning elections, and businessmen are experts in growing the economy. Politicians should stick to politics, and let businessmen get on with business. Come on liberals: we all know how to grow the economy. You do it will low tax rates on people and low taxes on jobs."

Good stuff - read the rest here.

CFP: Perpetual Media War Against Palin Exposes Imbecility of Mindless Critics

the lovely Sarah... image from CFP

Good article at Canada Free Press called Perpetual Media War Against Palin Exposes Imbecility of Mindless Critics.

A snippet:

"I. Overview of the Anti-Palin Phenomenon

A. Why Palin?

What causes the emotionally overwrought and laughably illiterate anti-Palin movement? It is the result of an exclusive media-produced event, directed by the upper echelons of the democrat establishment. It was launched for the sake of survival. Because, if Conservatives were allowed to proffer a virtuous, smart and effective female candidate for office—one which combined the best ideals of feminism and family life—then who would then need liberals and democrats?

B. Liberal Banality

Liberals rent out whatever subgroup they can persuade to help them amalgamate power. They entice special interest groups to enter their camp, then dispose of them like used toilet paper. For example, only liberals care about African Americans, correct? It’s just a coincidence out-of-wedlock births now account for over 70% of Black newborns since welfare was established. Again, liberals “love and protect” women, right? This is symbolized by safeguarding abortion, as we all know. So, it must be a meaningless detail that abortion eliminates half a million female fetal humans a year.

C. Block Idiots From Office!

Liberals claim the right to attack Palin because such a stupid woman must be blockaded from public office. After all, only a moron like Palin could beat a sitting governor in her first statewide primary, and then a former governor in the general election. And the fact Sarah organized the largest private building project in North American history—the TransCanada Pipeline—is of course, blind luck.

But seriously—below the surface, in the seamy American leftist underbelly, the anti-Palin sentiments are driven by a hatred of real conservatism, wholesale opposition to Christianity, and a surprisingly virulent, anti-modern loathing of real women in public life.

D. Evidence of Imbecility?

For example, other than the emotional statement that “Palin is an idiot,” what proof is offered for her incompetence? The seething opposition to her is self-contained and utterly circular, a perfect tautology. In other words, we know Sarah is an imbecile because smart, well-informed people have already established her cretinism as one of the chief laws of the universe.

The massive campaign of Palin disrespect has achieved such cachet, even people nominally considered conservative, like the entire Bush family and Joey Scarborough, have backhanded Palin. As the saying goes—With friends like these, who needs enemas?!!"

Cato: downsizing the Federal Government

The Cato Institute has outlined MANY specific examples of what should be done to downsize the behemoth USA federal government here.

"The federal government is running massive budget deficits, spending too much, and heading toward a financial crisis. Without a change of direction in Washington, average working families will be faced with huge tax increases and a lower standard of living.

This website is designed to help policymakers and the public understand where federal funds are being spent and how to reform each government department. It describes the failings of federal agencies and identifies specific programs to cut. It also discusses the systematic reasons why government programs are often obsolete, mismanaged, or otherwise dysfunctional.

Some people have lofty visions about how government spending can help society. But the essays on this website put aside such “bedtime stories” about how government programs are supposed to work, and instead focuses on how they actually work in the real world.

Downsizing the Federal Government is a project of the Cato Institute. Scholars at Cato believe that cutting the federal budget would enhance personal freedom, increase growth and prosperity, and leave a positive fiscal legacy to the next generation.

For information on the data sources for the charts on this site, see here.

Please contact or with any questions or comments."

teaching Socialism, Marxism, Communism to kids in public schools

what California teaches their kids...

Pix from a rally in California: they want more money for public education - by taxing the rich!  Spread the wealth = MARXISM.

For at least the past 40-50 years, USA government has been putting more and more money into public education.  Look at the statistics: kids are NOT doing better in school.  Part of the reason why is because of all the indoctrination - teaching kids to be marxists, communists and socialists - doesn't promote healthy, independent, hard working kids.  Why would they want to grow up, get a job and contribute to society?  The "rich" don't deserve their own money - they should just GIVE it to the poor kids, poor people ... so they can sit home or go to socialist rallies like this one.  Pics from Ringo's pictures.  Zombie at Pajama's media says How a Teachers’ Rally Made Me Anti-Education.

The solution? "We have to destroy education in order to save it."

Recap of the Palin east coast bus tour

Recap video of the east coast One Nation Palin tour - from SarahPac:

Barbara Curtis Pajamas Media says "Palin leads - - and the media follows" - at: "PalinTracker: Get On The Bus"

And another great list of "10 top reasons" Sarah should run for President from Amy Siskind at the Daily Caller:

1.) Our country has yet to elect a woman president
2.) Left to their own devices, neither party will run a woman
3.) A generation of girls will see politics as a possibility
4.) Women’s representation in leadership is moving backwards
5.) Palin “walks the walk” on supporting and mentoring women
6.) Standing up to sexism
7.) Women’s voices (and faces) are evaporating
8.) Teaching girls to take risks (and pick themselves up and try again)
9.) Like so many of us, Palin is a working mom
10.) Palin made her own way

She certainly is the complete package!  Go Sarah!  :)

yes, Paul Revere warned both revolutionary and British soldiers

Sarah Palin's tour is doing its job - and raising awareness of American history.  She gave the press a brief answer this week about Paul Revere after a tour. She mentioned Revere also warning the British about revolutionaries waiting for them. She was factually correct.  Don't believe Sarah? Don't believe me? How about learning something and believing what Paul actually said in his personal deposition...from Revolutionary war and Beyond. His goal: to warn Adams and Hancock and the British were coming to try and confiscate arms:

"I, PAUL REVERE, of Boston, in the colony of the Massachusetts Bay in New England; of lawful age, do testify and say; that I was sent for by Dr. Joseph Warren, of said Boston, on the evening of the 18th of April, about 10 o'clock; when he desired me, "to go to Lexington, and inform Mr. Samuel Adams, and the Hon. John Hancock Esq. that there was a number of soldiers, composed of light troops, and grenadiers, marching to the bottom of the common, where there was a number of boats to receive them; it was supposed that they were going to Lexington, by the way of Cambridge River, to take them, or go to Concord, to destroy the colony stores."

As he had already warned revolutionaries up and down his route, when detained, he then warned the British:

"Sir, may I crave your name?" I answered "My name is Revere. "What" said he, "Paul Revere"? I answered "Yes." The others abused much; but he told me not to be afraid, no one should hurt me. I told him they would miss their aim. He said they should not, they were only waiting for some deserters they expected down the road. I told him I knew better, I knew what they were after; that I had alarmed the country all the way up, that their boats were caught aground, and I should have 500 men there soon. One of them said they had 1500 coming; he seemed surprised and rode off into the road, and informed them who took me, they came down immediately on a full gallop."

More from his personal account of his ride by Paul Revere here.

See? Sarah's tour is working - she IS sparking interest in the founding, roots and exceptionalism of America!  Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has been covering the story of the left's faked outrage at Sarah's mention of Revere's ride last week (historian's say she was correct!)...  The left is more and more desperate while she is winning hearts and minds across America on her tour... They are scared to death she'll make a potus run... all the way to the White House for 8 years...   Oh yeah, that would be great if she did! 

Restore America
Energize America's future

Barnhardt's theory on Trump's potus motivation

Trump International Tower - Chicago

From On Trump's Motives:

"Trump's plan is to dominate and control the Chicago gaming concession. He is in on the ground floor, knows that his position is very, very strong, and wants to keep it that way. What he also knows is that in order for him to be successful in Chicago, he MUST assert dominance over the massively powerful and utterly corrupt Chicago City Hall. Trump is no pushover and refuses to bow to the Chicago City Hall / Union Mob machine. And why should he? Trump has the Chicago Machine by the throat because the Chicago Machine made a terrible, terrible mistake several years ago. What was that mistake? They tied their entire fortunes to the single most blackmail-able human being in the history of the world: Barack Obama.

In their blind quest for power, the Chicago Marxist/Mob syndicate put all their chips on a smooth-talking light-skinned black guy who could talk the centrist talk, but was actually a hardcore Marxist plant. And it worked - for a time. They got the White House. But here's the problem. Their smooth-talking, light-skinned black guy wasn't born in the United States, was born the son of a British Subject, was adopted by an Indonesian and is thus also an Indonesian citizen, was raised by card-carrying Communists, attended college as a foreign student and traveled internationally under a non-U.S. passport as an adult, has used hard drugs including crack for all of his adult life, has been an active homosexual for his entire adult life, has more aliases and social security numbers than Jason Bourne (or is that Harrison J. Bounel?) and is actually dumber than a bag of hair."

Interesting theory...

I wouldn't mind it Donald Trump "took over" things in Chicago... it would be a hell of an improvement over the Daley-now-Rahm crew... Dats For Sure...  check out how beautiful the Chicago tower turned out here.  WOW!  I want to visit there next I'm in Chicago...

Shapiro exposes: Primetime Propaganda

Featured at Breitbart this week and available from Amazon, Ben Shapiro exposes: Primetime Propaganda

Product description: "The inside story of how the most powerful medium of mass communication in human history has become a propaganda tool for the Left

Primetime Propaganda is the story—told in their own words—of how television has been used over the past sixty years by Hollywood writers, producers, actors, and executives to promote their liberal ideals, to push the envelope on social and political issues, and to shape America in their own leftist image.

In this thoroughly researched and detailed history of the television industry, conservative columnist and author Ben Shapiro argues that left-leaning entertainment kingpins in Los Angeles and New York have leveraged—and continue to use—their positions and power to push liberal messages and promote the Democratic Party while actively discriminating against their opponents on the right. According to Shapiro, television isn't just about entertainment—it's an attempt to convince Americans that the social, economic, and foreign policy shaped by leftism is morally righteous.

But don't take his word for it. Shapiro interviewed more than one hundred of the industry's biggest players, including Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H), Fred Silverman (former president of ABC Entertainment, NBC, and vice president of programming at CBS), Marta Kauffman (Friends), David Shore (House), and Mark Burnett (Survivor). Many of these insiders boast that not only is Hollywood biased against conservatives, but that many of the shows being broadcast have secret political messages. With this groundbreaking exposÉ, readers will never watch television the same way again."
