  • Obama has himself to blame for Muslim problem.In 1985, Barack Obama had just arrived in Chicago for his new job as a community organizer when he headed to Smitty’s Barbershop, a tiny storefront on the South Side. As Smitty cut his hair, Obama listened to the men in the shop talk politics and racial grievance. When the barber finished, he handed Obama a mirror and said, “Haircut’s ten dollars. What’s your name, anyway?”“Barack.”“Barack, huh,” Smitty responded. “You a Muslim?”“Grandfather was,” Obama said.

  • HT:MichelleMalkin.And now: The stealth Obama ocean grab.It’s not enough that the White House is moving to lock up hundreds of millions of acres of land in the name of environmental protection. The Obama administration’s neon green radicals are also training their sights on the deep blue seas. The president’s grabby-handed bureaucrats have been empowered through executive order to seize unprecedented control from states and localities over “conservation, economic activity, user conflict and sustainable use of the ocean, our coasts and the Great Lakes.”

  • They won't build it! Hardhats vow not to work on controversial mosque near Ground Zero.A growing number of New York construction workers are vowing not to work on the mosque planned near Ground Zero."It's a very touchy thing because they want to do this on sacred ground," said Dave Kaiser, 38, a blaster who is working to rebuild the World Trade Center site."I wouldn't work there, especially after I found out about what the imam said about U.S. policy being responsible for 9/11," Kaiser said.The grass-roots movement is gaining momentum on the Internet. One construction worker created the "Hard Hat Pledge" on his blog and asked others to vow not to work on the project if it stays on Park Place.


  • Dearborn Hosts Rep. Conyers and Special Envoy to OIC Rashad Hussain.Dearborn–August 15–The presidential appointment of a hafiz-Qur`an was, by itself and independent of any other facts, completely unpalatable to many on the extreme right.Judge Keith said of Mr. Hussain in introducint him, that he is of course brilliant, but also that in the year he had worked with Mr. Hussain he had seen him to be “a great man and a great human being–he is like a son to me.”He introduced Hussain to the audience with an emotional invitation: please welcome Rashad Hussain, “he is my son.”Hussein said:“America and Islam share principles of common humanity–the relationship with Muslism is not defined by only one framework, by Al-Qaeda. No religion accepts killing of innocent men, women, and children,” he said. OMG!!!! Go tell that to the 9/11 victims!


  • Obama and the Socialist Bourgeoisie."I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer." --Benjamin Franklin. While I don't know what October Surprise the Demos have up their collective sleeve for this fall's election cycle, I am gravely concerned that, given Obama's arrogant vacation schedule, it will be more devastating than the mischief they arranged in 2008. However, I remain altogether confident that American Patriots, like our forebears, will defend our Essential Liberty and persevere through whatever trials and foibles arise.

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.Iran test fires a new surface-to-surface missile.Iran launched a new surface-to-surface missile called the Qiam 1 on Friday. According to Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi, the missile is better able to avoid anti-missile systems because it has no wings.

  • Will bacteria count beach Barack Obama?WEST TISBURY - Welcome to Martha’s Vineyard, Mr. President - but don’t go in the water!President Obama, who took a plunge in the Gulf last week to show Americans it was safe to swim the oil spill-plagued area, arrived on this supposedly pristine island yesterday in the midst of a rash of bacteria-induced beach closings.Portions of Tisbury Great Pond, the salt-water lagoon fronting the first family’s vacation estate Blue Heron Farm, were closed earlier this week due to high levels of enterococci, an indicator that the water is contaminated with fecal coliform bacteria.God works in Mysterious ways?

  • Is Jack DeCoster to Blame for Massive Egg Recall?So Far 380 Million Eggs Have Been Recalled; 2,000 Report Illness.Jack DeCoster, the owner of the company at the center of one of the largest egg recalls in history, is no stranger to controversy.He's been involved in legal cases that have forced him to settle with the federal government for hiring illegal immigrants, for tolerating sexual harassment at his company, and has faced a litany of animal cruelty charges. DeCoster has also paid millions of dollars in fines and settlements over the years stemming from complaints about the health violations at his farms.Critics may say he's a bad egg .



  • The Muslim Student Association’s Terror Problem.Why do top MSA leaders keep joining terror groups and involving themselves in terror plots?Since its inception, the MSA has chronically been a vehicle of extremism, hatred, and incitement to violence. Its chapters host a wide variety of extremist speakers and have repeatedly raised funds for Islamic groups that have later been closed by the U.S. government for funding terrorism. For this reason, the MSA was identified in 2004 as one of 27 Islamic charities and groups in the U.S. under investigation by the Senate Finance Committee for terrorist support.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Howard Dean Hits Fellow Dems For “Demonizing” Opponents of Ground Zero Mosque.He’s looking at you, Nancy Pelosi.

  • Russian actions are aimed at denying US airspace and overflight options.“In Eurasia, Moscow is using its entire geopolitical toolbox to shift the balance of power in the region.The administration’s make-believe Realpolitik approach of "see no evil" encourages Moscow to expand its hegemony in the former Soviet space. Such policy inevitably will produce a massive loss of American influence in Eurasia that will take years, if not decades, to recover.These are hardly great accomplishment for the Obama "reset" policy.

  • U.S. Iraq Troop Withdrawal 'In Name Only' As Country Faces Uncertain Future.Saddam may be long gone but -- contrary to the soldier's emotive claims -- who "won" is far from clear. And in contrast to the impression meant to be conveyed by the departure of U.S. fighting forces, Iraq today is far from secure. Militant insurgents remain ominously active.On 17 August, a suicide bomber killed 61 Iraqi Army recruits in central Baghdad, while five government employees were killed in roadside bombings and other attacks the following day. Iraqi officials say July saw the deaths of more than 500 people, including 396 civilians, making it the deadliest month for more than two years."I think for the next 18 months, the reality is that there is going to be a large formal American military presence," Rogers says. "You may call them advise-and-assist brigades, but they do have a combat function if need be.So much for Obama's "Succes" in Iraq!

  • Holland Muslim group fined for publishing Holocaust-denying cartoon.Court calls cartoon 'unnecessarily hurtful' in appeal of a 2006 cquittal of the Arab European League.A Dutch Muslim group was fined 2,500 euros(3,200 $) for publishing a cartoon which suggested the Holocaust was made up or exaggerated by Jews, a Dutch appeals court ruled on Thursday.

  • From Iran's Nuclear Ambitions to Online Hate.“Canada’s grassroots support is very loyal. I wanted to give them a perspective and update,” he said.One of Cooper’s biggest concerns at the moment is Iran’s nuclear program. He recently met with a senior official of the White House’s National Security Council to address a Congressional vote on the Nuclear non-Proliferation Treaty in which Israel was named for the first time, but Iran was not mentioned.

  • Solving the Problem Posed by President Obama’s High Personal Approval Rating.As Abraham Lincoln explained: “You may fool all the people some of the time, you can even fool some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all the time.”Polls show that “generic Republican” would easily beat President Obama in the 2012 presidential election, but Republicans have to run a particular person and therefore they need to tell America the real truth about President Obama instead of do what Senator John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential candidate, did at the Al Smith dinner in 2008–say that Obama is a  fine young I man.

  • Obama: People Have Noticed.“Apres moi le deluge”, “After me, the flood” and though attributed to the French King Louis XV, historians believe it was actually said by Jeanne Poisson, Madame de Pompadour. The last members of the monarchy spent France into the poorhouse until they had their heads separated from their bodies via the guillotine.People have noticed the same eerie disconnect from the suffering of the populace as Barack and Michelle Obama party on. There has been a succession of vacations topped off by Michelle in Spain on the U.S. dime. Keeping track of the vacations, about seventeen this year, has become a media pastime. Twenty months into his first and last term, President Obama, has wasted a trillion dollars we didn’t have on a stimulus package that was little more than a wish list of pet projects for Democrat congressmen and bailouts of the teacher’s unions whose members would otherwise have to join the long lines at the unemployment office.

  • Focus U.S.A. / The ongoing saga of the U.S. Navy swastika building. In the 1960's a building was built in U.S. Naval Amphibious Base in San Diego which looked from satellite images like a swastika; it still stands.A couple of years ago, the swastika-shaped building at the Naval Amphibious Base in San-Diego discovered by Google Earth became an Internet hit. The former U.S. resident and now Israeli citizen Avrahaum Segol got word from a friend in 2006 and made getting rid of the offensive symbol his own personal project.

  • BBC’s flotilla film slammed as ‘biased’.Anti-Israel groups outraged at 'racist' documentary; plan protests.A BBC documentary screened this week that investigated the Gaza flotilla incident on May 31 is causing a storm of protest – from critics of Israel, who are furious that the program was not as hostile to Israel as they thought it should be.The critics, including an activist from the Free Gaza movement who was aboard the Mavi Marmara, are organizing demonstrations on Sunday outside the BBC’s London headquarters and other BBC offices, and are calling for a mass campaign of complaints to the BBC in general and the program makers in particular.


  • Lockerbie bomber could live until 2017, say doctors.The Lockerbie bomber could live for another seven years, it has been claimed.A year ago, Ali Al Megrahi was released from prison by the Scottish government, after being given just three months to live.But as Libyans prepare to celebrate the first anniversary of the 58-year-old’s release today, medical sources in Tripoli say he could still be alive in 2017.

  • A Biased Ideology and Double Standard.Our president has attempted, in his pro-Ground Zero mosque statement, to maintain that his stance is such because it's a civil rights issue. Civil rights for Muslims, that is.I didn't believe it then, and I don't believe it now. He is absolutely biased towards Muslims, whom he says should be afforded all rights to build wherever they want--but what about the Jews, whom he prohibits from building in East Jerusalem, in "the heartland of Jewish history?" That, according to the president, is verboten. And the fact that Abbas does not want Jews living in a Palestinian state, if it is created? That's ok by Mr. Obama, the great proponentof civil rights for all, right? Just not for Jews.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Video:New GOP Ad: Who’s Really Extreme?…Great job!

  • EXCLUSIVE: Proposed Chicago Suburb Mosque Has Likely US Muslim Brotherhood Leader On Executive Committee.According to the MECCA website, one of the members of the MECCA Executive Committee is Basman Osman, likely the same individual identified by a Hudson Institute report as a US Muslim Brotherhood leader and a representative of the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) who is known to have a home located approximately 2 kilometers northwest of the proposed new MECCA mosque. NAIT is an affiliate of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and a document released in 2007 by the prosecution in the Holy Land Terrorism financing case names NAIT as one of the entities that is part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

  • AP advises staff on location of Islamic center and mosque.The Associated Press, one of world's most powerful news organizations, issued a memo today advising staff to avoid the phrase "Ground Zero mosque."The Upshot reported Tuesday that the AP started using the phrase "Ground Zero mosque" in some headlines in late May. The New York Times, for one, has consciously avoided that phrasing.The AP began using the phrase as the controversy over the proposed Islamic cultural center and mosque in Lower Manhattan started bubbling up to the national level. Many news organizations, across platforms, routinely dub the project the "Ground Zero Mosque."Yeah lets call it the Obama & Democrats playground?

  • Is Obama a Muslim?10 points that indicate he is a Muslim.

  • Asking The Right Questions About Islamic Law And Human Rights.The recent stoning of a young couple by the Taliban in Afghanistan has prompted another round of discussion around the world about whether Islamic Shari'a law and Western human rights are reconcilable. As a student of Islamic history and philosophy, and as a member of the Baha'i faith, I worry whether certain lines of argument have been thought through.Translated into non-philosophese, it's one thing to convert the jirga and ulema into resemblances of Western-style legislatures, but entirely another to argue that this therefore means Shari'a and Western human rights are reconcilable, even the same. It would be like trying to argue that because certain trees bloom in springtime they are therefore flowers.

  • BP oil spill: scientists find giant plume of droplets 'missed' by official account.A 22-mile plume of droplets from BP's Deepwater Horizon well in the Gulf of Mexico undermines claim that oil has degraded.Scientists have mapped a 22-mile plume of oil droplets from BP's rogue well in the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, providing the strongest evidence yet of the fate of the crude that spewed into the sea for months.The report offers the most authoritative challenge to date to White House assertions that most of the 5m barrels of oil that spewed into the Gulf is gone."These results indicate that efforts to book-keep where the oil went must now include this plume," said Christopher Reddy one of the members of the team from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.



  • HT:TerrorfreeSomalia.Somali shop owner charged with lying about son with possible terrorist link.SALT LAKE CITY — A Somali shop owner faces federal charges for allegedly lying to FBI agents regarding the whereabouts of her son, who authorities apparently suspect could be associated with a terrorist network.Wearing a Muslim hijab over her jail jumpsuit, Lul Noor Abdi, 42, of Salt Lake City, appeared at a detention hearing Tuesday in U.S. District Court. About 30 members of the Somali community, including Abdi's mother, crowded into the small courtroom and in a hallway.Abdi faces two counts of making false statements to the FBI. Magistrate Judge Samuel Alba ordered her to be released from jail, with restrictions, including the seizure of her passport.

  • Giuliani: If dialogue and sensitivity are the goals, don’t build the mosque on Ground Zero.Rudy Giuliani took on Matt Lauer, his successor as Mayor, and apparently Nancy Pelosi’s thought police to argue against the building of the Ground Zero mosque. Giuliani acknowledged, as most of the project’s opponents do, that the owners of the property have a right to build anything within the zoning regulations at the site. Giuliani doesn’t call for government intervention, either. But he calls for the same kind of sensitivity that the Pope showed in pushing to move a convent in the vicinity of Auschwitz to a less provocative location as a way to foster actual healing, dialogue, and understanding.The best interview yet!

  • John McCain, Twitter genius.In a joint study conducted by George Washington and New York universities, the 73-year old Republican was found to have the highest “Digital IQ” in the Senate, what the researchers are dubbing as the “definitive benchmark for online competence.” You rock senator!


  • Warlords and Taliban fighters earn money from U.S. in the form of protection.A new report titled “Warlord, Inc., Extortion and Corruption along the U.S. Supply Chain in Afghanistan” was published by Congressman John Tierney (D-MA) in June. The report details the millions of dollars spent to protect U.S. military supply convoys in Afghanistan- the majority of the money is paid out from the Department of Defense through the use of defense contractors and often finds its way into the hands of shady characters.

  • Obama is hell bent on destroying America's energy production.In a report released Monday, the administration announced that all offshore drilling permits will now be subject to an environmental review and puts and an end to the 30 day decision process set forth in the National Environmental Policy Act.When you couple these capricious decisions with the administration’s plans to seize millions of acres of energy rich, privately held land, America’s ability to produce energy will be even further restricted. In doing so, the administration will cause us to become even more dependent on foreign oil. And even more likely, this is a backdoor mechanism to drive up energy prices and push us further towards Obama’s dream of a green economy which will “necessarily result in skyrocketing energy prices” as the president likes to say. Regardless of how you look at it, the administration appears to be hell bent on destroying America’s energy production.See you in the trenches.

  • Major study charts long-lasting oil plume in Gulf.A 22-mile-long invisible mist of oil is meandering far below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, where it will probably loiter for months or more, scientists reported Thursday in the first conclusive evidence of an underwater plume from the BP spill.The most worrisome part is the slow pace at which the oil is breaking down in the cold, 40-degree water, making it a long-lasting but unseen threat to vulnerable marine life, experts said.

  • The Gulf Disaster Is Far From Over. A few weeks ago, I flew over the Deepwater Horizon site and saw what looked like the opposite of all the news reports: it looked more like somebody had spilled water into a Gulf filled with oil.

  • Low Friends in High Places: The Ground Zero Mosque’s Ties to The Obama Administration.With President Obama igniting political controversy by commenting on the right of American Muslims to build an Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero, it is worth noting the close ties of several Obama administration officials to the cleric behind the proposed project. The ties include a religion adviser to Obama, Eboo Patel, who discussed with Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf – the controversial Muslim leader behind the mosque initiative – America as “the ideal place for a renewal of Islam.” … In Patel’s 2007 book, “Saving Each Other, Saving Ourselves,” he recounts discussing with Rauf the future of Islam in the U.S.

  • Turkey prepares for UNSC presidency as Iran talks loom.Turkey will take over the rotating presidency of the 15-member UN Security Council on Sept. 1 for one month, as talks on a standoff over Iran’s nuclear program are expected to resume.

  • Bid for Sharia Court in St. Petersburg Fails.ST. PETERSBURG — A Muslim lawyer's attempt to create St. Petersburg's first sharia court flopped just weeks after the court opened amid a storm of criticism from local Muslim leaders and human rights activists that climaxed with an order from prosecutors for its closure.The court, which adhered to Islamic law, had no judicial power, and its activity was limited to civil disputes, such as reconciling members of estranged families, founder Dzhamaliddin Makhmutov said.But the court could have just the opposite effect, by further isolating members of the Muslim community who already had problems adapting to city life, said Valentina Uzunova, a senior researcher with the St. Petersburg Museum for Anthropology and Ethnography.“I would recommend an integration strategy, rather than locking themselves in seclusion,” said Uzunova, who often acts as a consultant on hate crimes in the city's courts.Many Muslim and non-Muslim leaders in St. Petersburg also understood it to be a sharia court and roundly condemned it.

  • In Defining Obama, Misperceptions Stick. Americans need only stand in line at the grocery checkout counter to glimpse the conspiracy theories percolating about President Obama. “Birthplace Cover-Up,” screams the current issue of the racy tabloid Globe. “Obama’s Secret Life Exposed!”Among Democrats, for example, just 46 percent said Mr. Obama was Christian, down from 55 percent in March 2009, two months after he took office.

I think that is a mistake because the guest list gives some insight into what Obama really believes.Amongst all of the ambassadors and other dignitaries, two “community” leaders with a radical Islamic agenda stand out.You can learn a lot about someone by the company he keeps – or, in President Obama’s case, the people he invites to dinner at the White House.

All four are framed in the Western media as issues of religious tolerance. But that is not their essence.

  • Chechnya: door-to-door sermons for restaurant owners who do not close for Ramadan.Muslim religious authorities set up a special commission to visit cafés and eateries to lecture on the importance of respecting Islamic principles, and close down during the day on Ramadan. Experts and observers discuss the initiative; some groups with special needs are not required to fast.According to the deputy chairman of Russia’s Mufti Council (Muftiyat), Imam Ildar Aljautdinov, what is happening in Chechnya cannot be applied to other Russian regions with a Muslim population.In his opinion, each region is unique, and local religious leaders must accordingly decide what is best in regards to their community. For example, in Tatarstan or in the northern Caucasus, it would be unfair to propose such an initiative since most people are not religiously observant, the imam said.“Even in countries like Saudi Arabia, some restaurants are open for non-Muslim,” Igor Bucharov, president of the Restaurant Owners Federation, told Echo of Moscow radio.“I think however every person should have the right to choose. Based on his actions, God will judge him. The authorities instead should not act as the defenders of religion,” he added.

Seems that Governor David Paterson is still thinking about a “compromise” that would allow the people behind the Ground Zero Mosque– and its Shariah Index Project– to relocate to state land nearby.Sources tell CBS 2’s Kramer that Gov.

It's time for some of those skeletons - some of them actually quite recent - to be reawakened.
