  • Another Obama White House Lie About Islam.Remember that iftar dinner the president sponsored? The dinner that got him in trouble because he came out in strong support of the mega-mosque at Ground Zero, support from which he backed away the very next day? Well, it turns out he delivered another blatant lie at that dinner, one that slipped under the radar because his support of the Ground Zero Mosque was so controversial.In his remarks at the iftar observance, Obama claimed that the "first" iftar dinner in the White House was hosted by Thomas Jefferson.But for Obama and the New York Times to mislead the American people into imagining that the White House has celebrated iftar all the way back to 1805 is simply a straight out lie.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • The Root of the Arab-Israeli Conflict: The Classic Islamic View of Jews.From the day Israel was established, the Muslim world has been hostile towards the State of Israel. This has been increasing over the years, despite the efforts of so many to settle the conflict. Although Israel signed Peace Agreements with Egypt and Jordan, nevertheless, many leaders in the Arab world, including Egyptian and Jordanian officials, make anti-Zionist and even anti-Semitic statements, and oppose normalization with Israel. When asked why, they answer that this peace is between governments, and not between the people of their countries.Trying to find solutions to the Arab-Israeli conflict, politicians and statesmen have spent endless hours with experts on Islam to understand the roots of the conflict. They have usually heard two answers: "The root of the problem is territorial," and "The root of the problem is religious; it stems from the classic Islamic view of Jews as evil."Read the full story here.

Some of the individuals tested have not been on the beaches, were not involved in any cleanup operations or in the Gulf water -- they simply live along the Gulf Coast. Several of them are now leaving the area due to a combination of illness and economic hardship.As it evaporates and becomes airborne, the toxic compounds have moved on shore, creating health impacts that, although apparently large from the numbers of people affected, the full extent is unknown. BP and the US government have effectively been performing the largest chemical experiment in history on a civilian population without their knowledge or consent.Read the full story here

  • RESTORING CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT....... HT:The Tundra Tabloids would also add that there needs to be an insistence on term limits as well as ending voting precincts that favor each parties candidates, such rigging of the voting sytem has in part, led to the current troubles and reduced the citizen's voting power, because it has allowed for party hacks to enjoy public office over more other deserving candidates.This end, I contended, can be achieved only if the Republicans appropriate for their own use a claim falsely but effectively advanced by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1936 which – thanks to our current President, his Chief of Staff, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the Majority Leader in the United States Senate — now rings all too true: that today the American republic is threatened by a conspiracy, that “a small group” of individuals, lead by Obama, Emanuel, Pelosi, and Reid, is intent on concentrating “into their own hands an almost complete control over other people’s property, other people’s money, other people’s labor — other people’s lives.” If they wish to effect a realignment, I argued, all that the Republicans have to do is to complete the task of unmasking begun by Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and Emanuel and make it clear that they really do intend to repeal Obamacare, to balance the federal budget without enacting permanent tax increases, to roll back the scope and size of the administrative state, and to restore within these United States limited, constitutional government.Read the full story here.

I think it’s fair almost to call him a Marxist. John, he has a visceral contempt, an abiding contempt for capitalism, and while he holds himself out as a fierce advocate of the market, he’s constantly badgering and bullying capitalism. He calls bankers “fat cat bankers.” He resents legitimate profits made in the private sector. He talks about insurance companies’ “obscene profits” when they, of course, were making modest profits at the same time he was characterizing them. He wants to radically redistribute wealth.Read the full story here.

Walk into any college or cocktail party and say “from each according to his abilities and to each according to his needs“. See how many objections you get. We had better wise up.The ideological battle against Islamo-fascism is a critical front in the fight for freedom in our time.

  • Iran Risks Crash With Record Stock Market Boom, Say Economists.A record boom in Tehran's stock market will end in a spectacular crash that could trigger a prolonged depression producing multiple bankruptcies, mass unemployment, and acute economic hardship, analysts say.The warning follows months of soaring share prices that have prompted officials in Iran's Islamic regime to proclaim that the country's economy is flourishing despite fresh international sanctions aimed at combating its nuclear program.The Tehran bourse index passed 17,900 on August 30, compared to 12,537 points on the final day of the last Iranian year in March, following a sustained wave of stock sales and purchases. The upward trend has pushed the exchange's total value to more than $80 billion, up from $70 billion in mid-July.However, the bull market has been dismissed as a "state-created bubble" by seasoned analysts who attribute it to the deliberate buying and selling of assets by supposedly private companies that are in reality owned by organizations like the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), which has been playing an increasingly dominant role in Iran's economy.One economist says a stock-market crash is "inevitable" and could result in a disastrous financial collapse comparable to those that afflicted Russia in 1998 and Argentina in 2001, with grave consequences for Iran's political and social stability.Read the full story here.

  • Presidential Proclamation–National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month.One of the greatest responsibilities we have as a Nation is to safeguard the health and well-being of our children. We now face a national childhood obesity crisis, with nearly one in every three of America’s children being overweight or obese. There are concrete steps we can take right away as concerned parents, caregivers, educators, loved ones, and a Nation to ensure that our children are able to live full and active lives. During National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, I urge all Americans to take action to meet our national goal of solving the problem of childhood obesity within a generation.The new landmark health care law, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), includes a number of important tools for fighting and reversing the rise of childhood obesity. All new health insurance plans will be required to cover both screenings for childhood obesity and counseling on nutrition and sustained weight loss, without charging any out of pocket costs. The ACA also requires large restaurant and vending machine operators to provide visible nutritional information about the products they sell, enabling all Americans to make more informed choices about the foods they eat. As part of my Administration’s comprehensive approach to combating this epidemic, the ACA includes millions in new funds to implement prevention activities nationwide that support recommendations of the Task Force on Childhood Obesity.Hmmmmm.Read the full story here.

  • ...Islam Is Not A Religion, It Is Foreign Law.The time has come to question if Islam is protected under our First Amendment rights to freedom of religion. Yes, everyone in America has the right to freedom of religion, but Islam is not a religion. Religious faith is only a part of Islam. The rest is a socially engineered society with its own laws and customs that seriously conflict with American law.If Muslims want to live and work in America and worship their prophet and God, that is not a problem. But when they try to go beyond their own personal worship and demand that we change our society to accommodate them, then that is where we need to draw the line. It is not we who should change, it is they. Just like people migrating from Mexico, they need to discard their old country ways, adapt to America, assimilate into our society, and become Americans.Muslim worship is protected under the First Amendment, Islamic law is not. Until Muslims - and our own government - can accept that, then Islam cannot be considered a religion and Islamic culture does not belong here in America.Read the full story here.
