Today we are going to start the news with two posts from Iraq the Model (I recently found out there were two posts), Gregg Jackson’s articles about things we should know about Romney and some news from Stop the ACLU.

Omar is studying for his American degree (he is already well educated in Iraq), and he finally had a moment to write to us to let us know that both Mohammed and he are well. Oh my! I just went to get the permalink, and there is another post! (For those who are new to the term, ITM=Iraq the Model.)

Here is an excerpt from the second post:

One more important finding makes my suspicion stronger. Could it be a coincidence that the percentage that Libyan nationals make up of total foreign terrorists has spiked during 2007? According to recently captured documents that US military captured in Sinjar, a town west of Mosul, one fifth of foreign fighters who came to Iraq between in the year leading to August 2007 were Libyan nationals. Or could it be another coincidence that Libya covertly sponsored a satellite TV channel in Iraq that was going to launch in late 2006, the same time the Libyan “surge” started? This is a new and surprising figure that suggests that there’s an organized effort to recruit and send fighters from Libya to Iraq; an effort not easy to undertake in a repressive police state unless someone above the law is involved. [Continue reading.]

Gregg sends me e-mails often, and I lost one of those letters which I needed to make an arguement. So I asked him for a copy, and this is what he sent me: Family leaders call Romney ‘disaster’, and A Stern Warning to the “Conservative Elites” about Mitt Romney. These are powerful writings, and I would take heed to the advice.

Aha, but there is more. This one is from a different source. Massachusetts Healthcare Plan Costs Skyrocket, by Monisha Bansal. Ask yourself, “Do I want to become a slave?” That is just what happens when we give away our freedoms. The Trouble With Mitt Romney’s Pro-Life Conversion, by Deal W. Hudson. It is amazing how someone can support BOTH the adoption of frozen embryonic eggs AND the destruction of them for research. This one is surprising, “American Right To Life Rebukes Ann Coulter. Wow. They must be very strict, but who can blame them? The Truth must be made known to those who are too blind to see. Finally, Why I Don’t Trust Mitt Romney.

This last link answers many of the questions people may have about Mitt Romney. Full disclosure: that is, if you don’t trust him like I don’t.

This next article is about an amazing young man who started sending care packages to our Troops since the beginning of this war. His heart must be filled with gold, because his offerings to the Troops has blossumed! Please read the following:

Troops in the Spotlight – May 25th and 26th 2008
K-Mart Plaza Hyannis, MA
.

It is hard to believe that Troops in the Spotlight is just 4 months away!!! Plans are now under way but we can use your help. We are hoping that you can help get the word out – we are looking for businesses, schools, churches, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, community organization, and families to plan to do donation drives and/or fundraisers during the months of April and May; and then present their donations during Troops in the Spotlight. If you can help with this please let us know.

We are also looking for Airman, Army, Marines, Navy and Coast Guard personnel who would be willing to participate during Troops in the Spotlight. Last year we raised almost $20,000. in cash donations and over 80,000. worth of supplies were donated. This year the goal is to double those amounts!!!

We will have flyers, posters available within the next week or so and would be happy to send you some. We are also updating our drop off sites, and of course we are always looking for new drop off locations.

We are looking for representatives for each town that would help to get their towns involved. We will also be offering a raffle during this years event and are in need of raffle items.

We would love to hear any suggestions that you may have. We want to make this year’s event a huge sucess!!! So far, we have sent out over 2500 care packages to our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and continue to support several orphanages, schools and medical clinics in both countries. I made several visits to Bethesda Naval Hospital, and Brooks Army Medical Center. This year I hope to become more involved with our injured troops here at home, supporting not only our injured troops but also their families. Of course, I would like to send out another 1000 care packages by the end of the year!!! The goal for next year’s Christmas Care Packages is 200!!! This year we sent out 120.

Please mark your calendars now and plan to join us during Troops in the Spotlight. We really need a show of support during the event.

More information will be available next week on the web site www.capecod4thetroops.com.

Thank you again for all your support, Cape Cod Cares for the Troops has been so sucessful because of the support I have received from everyone.

Sincerely,

Dylan DeSilva
Cape Cod Cares for the Troops

PS Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who may be interested in helping to support our troops

Now for some news from Stop the ACLU. This first article is about who would be the best candidate on judges and standing up to the ACLU? Please feel free to pass these articles on to your friends.

Which Candidate Can We Trust on Appointing Constitutionalist Judges?

…For most people that think fighting the ACLU and judicial tyranny are high priorities, an important question is: who can we trust to appoint constitutionalist judges that don’t write laws from the bench?

Lets not forget that McCain led the gang of 14. Mark Levin reminds everyone:

McCain also led the Gang of 14, which prevented the Republican leadership in the Senate from mounting a rule change that would have ended the systematic use (actual and threatened) of the filibuster to prevent majority approval of judicial nominees.

This next one needs no explaination: “Gitmo Terrorist Lawyers Endorse Obama.” Imagine that.

Well, it’s already tomorrow, so I’m going to stop right here. See the next post for ACT! for America, American Congress for Truth, and many more. I’m almost caught up. Gosh, ya take one day to go to the doctor, and the e-mail overfloweth! lol. Have a great day everyone.

Today (since it is morning already) is going to be an open trackback day so I can continue catching up with everything. Have fun!

These are the posts I’ve linked to because, well, they’re just that good! lol Oh, I will be using Linkfest to find these posts.

Pet’s Garden Blog: Wednesday Hero~SSgt. Justin R. Whiting, The Virtuous Republic: Undocumented Immigrants, Real Crimes Afternoon Edition, Wolf Pangloss: The Oil Parable Open Trackbacks, Right Voices Hardy Har Har: Planned Parenthood Complains That $25/Mo Is Too High For The Pill..Obama Agrees, Leaning Straight Up Bush Derangement in Brattleboro cause blowback as city officials face harassment and scorn.

These are some posts that I found otherwise:

http://www.darrellepp.com: AMERICA ALONE, by Mark Steyn Public Enemy #1, More on the Styen thing, and Canadian Government Says Goodbye To Free Speech, Forces Private Citizen To Obey Sharia.

We really need to be careful about how these politicians mess with our free speech. I agree with Darrell. I should kiss the ground I walk on each day as I arise from the slumber Thou hast provided. Now. These are from Iraq the Model:

Have you ever given any thought to a ‘three-dimensional’ website? Look at it this way, we no longer live in a world where the net is a ‘flat earth’ development. To give you a peek inside this fact, Douglas Farah has written a very informative and chilling article.

At the Counterterrorism Blog, you will find just about any type of news that we are NOT hearing about on the news. Especially the type of news which we should all be looking for to keep our country safe. I suppose that could be because of the elections, but you would think our survival would be an election year topic. Oh well.

Jihadists Move to Encryption on Internet Sights.

…Today’s Washington Post carries an extensive look at the radicalization of two Islamists from the state of Georgia who were filming potential targets in Washington, D.C.

Much of the process took place on line, as did the radicalization of an Egyptian businessman who sponsored the trip of combatants to Iraq based on the Internet statements and broadcasts by Yousef al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. [Continue reading.]

So, they think catching illegal aliens is too hard of a task? Check out this story from Jayson Javitz over at Wizbang!

Dragnet.

…’They think they’re pretty much home free once they get up here,’ said Bill Botts, of the Border Patrol’s Gulport, Mississippi, station. But Operation Uniforce, as the two-week crackdown started Jan. 13 is called, ‘is pretty much a shocker for the [alien] smuggling organizations.’

More than 300 illegal immigrants and alien smugglers had been arrested as of Tuesday, just over a week into the operation. [Continue reading.]

Now I will share with you some articles and their links and who they are written by in groupings. That is because there are too many of them! lol

First I would like to start with Michael Yon. This first post of his is Moment of Truth in Iraq, a book that Michael has written, and it is very good. I’ve read the first chapter of Danger Close (it is online), and you might like to read it also. He is one of the citizen journalists who tells it as it is, not the way we would like to hear it. I like that. It shows me respect, because he trusts that I can make up my own mind.

CORRECTION: It has been brought to my attention that Michael’s book is Titled “Danger Close.” Jon is correct. The link to the first chapter is right here and you may purchase it only at Michael’s site here. Thank you Jon for catching that for me. *blush*

His next post is News Flash: Dragon Skin. This one is about body armor. Next is “Commanders Update #9, Commander’s Update #9 JAN 08, By LTC. James Crider. Then there is “General Lee Comes Home, Part 2, Stryker Dubbed ‘General Lee’ Rejuvenated, By Ann Roosevelt, for Defense Daily. After that one is this one where he was profiled by the NY Times, “News Flash: Frontline Blogger With a Soldier’s Eyes. They actually did a good job. Then finally, there is a collection of Michael’s writings: Archives: Table of Contents.

This one is not technically a blogger (Former Ambassador to the USA, John Bolton), but he has written a very chilling warning to President Bush, Condi, and the new president of the USA in the Wall Street Journal’s opinion and commentary section. The title of this article is “North Korea’s True Colors.” Read it! Another article which they printed is “The Legacy, Bush of Arabia. This U.S. president is the most consequential the Middle East has ever seen. by FOUAD AJAMI.” It is a refreshing look at both President Bush (whom I have lost much hope of having anything positive get done) and the Iraqi people. It is a good read.

For the following articles from CentCom, I will put them in list form. There are many good articles!

Here are six links to YouTube videos from Blackfive: This video is 1:16 minutes long. The title is “Sgt. Giles.” This one is “Arab Jabour: An Introduction,” and it is 2:45 minutes. This next one is titled “Arab Jabour: Terrain Denial.” The next three are “Surge Plus One: Doura,” “Robin Williams in Kuwait” and “Crazy I-Ranians threaten US warships with Jihad.” Now I have links you may be interested in reading.

Next I have for you some articles from ACT! for America is a great site to go to find patriotic people keeping an eye on legislation and other news that we can appreciate. They now have chapters that are posted on their website. You can also receive e-mails from them, if you wish.

This next news article is an interview between National Review Online and M. Zuhdi Jasser. This is the third part of the article. The title of this portion of the interview is “We Need a Hero, Looking toward 2008 and beyond.” Mr. Jasser has also had a press release, “FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award given to Zuhdi Jasser.” One more article here. It is written by Electa Draper at the Denver Post. The name of the article is “Moderate Muslim view outshouted by Islamists.” Oh, those so understanding and tolerant libs. You may read about him and keep up with him at AIFD. This acronym stands for American Islamic Forum for Democracy.

American Congress for Truth is a very fine site. It is run by conversatives who just happen to be black. This is an amazing site, and you really should add it to your sidebar. For example, they are on top of this internet problem which I started this post off with.

Terrorism Probe Points to Reach Of Web Networks.

In April 2005, police swarmed the U.S. Capitol to confront an erratic Australian man, carrying two suitcases, who they feared was a suicide bomber. After blowing up one of the bags, officers realized he was harmless.

The police never noticed the two nervous young men on a nearby sidewalk filming the Capitol during the standoff. But they might have been the real threat, according to newly released documents.

The men, ultraconservative Muslims from Georgia, were making surveillance videos that could help extremists plan “some kind of terrorist attack,” as one man later acknowledged, according to court documents disclosed last week. One of their videos was sent to a notorious al-Qaeda publicist in London, authorities said. [Continue reading.]

Does that give anyone pause? It does me.

Okay, that should be enough information to hold you through the weekend. Don’t worry. If it doesn’t, I will still be posting at my site. I am having an Open Tracktrack Alliance and an Open Trackback at Linkfest. Share with others your work. Before you trackback, please add me to your post. After you this, I will add your name and title to the main page. This way, everyone will be able to see your work and may come over to view it. Have a good weekend everyone!

Update: I just have to add this one last(?) post. It is very funny and is also a member of Open Trackback Alliance. Since I do not like to post a trackback on someone’s post who has not listed that post for today’s OTA, I have written this little piece about it. Oh, what is it?

If my thoughts have off, if my points have seemed pointless, if I have seemed angry, there is a good reason for this behavior. MAJ Andrew Olmsted was killed in action January 3, 2008, and I just do not have any words to say how sorry I am to his family and friends. I did not know Andy all that well, and I did not read blog very often. I have been so busy focused on myself that I miss out the best we have here while they walk amongst us. I am angry at myself, the animals who killed him, and just the plain ignorance of us all.

He did leave us one last post which he gave to hilzoy to post in such a case as this. So at least he deafed the grips of death with a final farewell. An excerpt:

What I don’t want this to be is a chance for me, or anyone else, to be maudlin. I’m dead. That sucks, at least for me and my family and friends. But all the tears in the world aren’t going to bring me back, so I would prefer that people remember the good things about me rather than mourning my loss. (If it turns out a specific number of tears will, in fact, bring me back to life, then by all means, break out the onions.) I had a pretty good life, as I noted above. Sure, all things being equal I would have preferred to have more time, but I have no business complaining with all the good fortune I’ve enjoyed in my life. So if you’re up for that, put on a little 80s music (preferably vintage 1980-1984), grab a Coke and have a drink with me. If you have it, throw ‘Freedom Isn’t Free’ from the Team America soundtrack in; if you can’t laugh at that song, I think you need to lighten up a little. I’m dead, but if you’re reading this, you’re not, so take a moment to enjoy that happy fact.

Please read the whole post. You will also be able read it on his site: Andy Olmsted. You may learn about this man, even now, through his archives. Please also send up a prayer for his family and friends, that God would comfort and strengthen them, and for him…Godspeed.

Oh my, what an oxymoron! Christmas time is a time when everyone is supposed to celebrate the birth of our LORD and Saviour, yet behind the scenes there is much work to be done. Yes, the cooking, the shopping, the cleaning of the clothes to wear to Church, the tree and decorating, and the blogging. A new phenomenon!

I have tackled most of it. It’s the blogging time I have a hard time finding. The only thing I want to really say in this post is Merry Christmas to all of readers, friends, family, and people I’ve yet to meet. God bless your efforts and you.

For those of you who are not Christians yet for whatever reason, to you I pray for peace in your heart. Peace that will allow you to allow me my LORD and my love for Him. You do not have to agree with me, but do not deny me. I won’t stand for it. Just as I won’t stand for anyone trying to force religion on you. Fair is fair.

I pray for all our troops who have served, are serving, and will serve our blessed country. May God continue to protect, guide, strengthen, love and grant them success in each mission. May He also make it possible for them to enjoy this day as best they can.

Please remember their families and other loved ones who are still here while they are yet thousands of miles away. Pray for them so that the distance will not be so hard to bear. They deserve so much gratitude and appreciation, but they also deserve our true support.

Please try to get to a Veteran’s Hospital today. They sometimes have no visitors, and today would be a great day to show up. Imagine that. All that is necessary is showing up. Wow. That is also that is necessary to bring a smile to someone who gave of themselves so that we may remain free. Protectors of Liberty. As Jesus came to offer us life eternal, a way to wash away our sins, these men and women protect us in their own way.

Am I comparing them to the Christ? No. Jesus came to grant life eternal to all those who would accept Him into their hearts and repent of their sins. He promises to wash them white as snow as far as their sins go, but I am saying that these men and women are taking a chance of laying down their lives for us as well. The one life they have while here on earth. I just happen to believe that is pretty awesome. I love our LORD. I love our military, also. May God bless them and you this Christmay day.

Oh my! Where did the time go? I must conclude with this:

2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3And everyone went to his own town to register.

4So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14Glory to God in the highest,

and on earth peace to men on

whom his favor rests.”

15When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Luke 2:1-20

Merry Christmas, and God bless you each and every one. I treasure you dearly. Stay safe, Morgan, and a special Merry Christmas to you. 😉

    Clinton shows fear

    It isn’t bad enough that the dead news stations know we don’t trust them, but then they have to go out of their way to prove why. Tonight was the GOP Debate held by C(linton) N(ews) N(etwork) and YouTube. I am not saying that anyone shined, because I don’t think anyone did. Is Hillary so afraid of us that she had to plant a video and have the homosexual ex-general actually come to the debate to argue with the candidates? Hmm.

    If you would like the real scoop on this, please go to Stop the ACLU and Webloggin. They both have documents and proof of the fact that this homo is on one of Hillary’s steering committees.

    Funny thing happened to us on the way to the debate tonight dear…

    This is the day, Nov. 25, six years ago that CIA Special Operations Mike Spann was ambushed and murdered in Kala-Jangi (Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan) during the beginning of the war. He was interrogating Jihad Johnny at the time. We know of this jihadist because he was brought home to the states, given a trial, given a chance to live, and given another opportunity to live which he denied for Mike Spann. Am I bitter? What do you think?! (I think the little punk deserves the death penalty by a firing squad.)

    I wish I could separate the two from my mind, because Mike is so much different than that traitor. Be it as it is. That is all I will say about it.

    Mike was a very good man. He was a wonderful husband and son, His Mother and Father have a site in his honor named Honor Mike Spann. Please visit it. There is a place for you to comment. I would suggest words of encouragement. If not, do not bother. They have suffered enough. They don’t need to suffer creeps who have an axe to grind with George W. Bush. So please be respectful.

    Blackfive has written an article about Mike Spann as well, so it would be a good idea if you went over to read that one. I shall end with the words I borrowed from him that are from Mike’s wife:

    Mike’s wife, Shannon, gets the last word, “Mike is a hero not because of the way he died, but because of the way he lived.”

    Hat-tip: Blackfive.

    PS. I would like to say thank you for all of those who prayed with me for The Florida Masochist. He is doing well, and he has posted another article today. God bless you all.

    I am opening this post for open trackbacks at Linkfest. Please remember to add my link in your post, and please, for Heaven’s sake, no porn! Yes, you have all been very good at this. This is for those who are new. 😉

    This first story is from Michael Yon. He is correct that many people got upset with his on the ground reporting, because I was one of them. It wasn’t because I didn’t believe him, it was because I did. I was angry that no one else was paying attention.

    The Perfect Evil: Coming to Roost.

    Iraq is looking better month by month. But at the current rate, surely we shall fail in Afghanistan:

      Opium Funding Afghan Unrest

      KABUL The top U.S. general in Afghanistan said yesterday he estimated that Afghanistan’s rampant opium poppy cultivation was funding up to 40 percent of the Taliban-led insurgency.

      Gen. Dan McNeill, head of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, added he had been told by an international specialist that his figure was likely low and could reach up to 60 percent.

      The cultivation of opium 93 percent of whose world supply comes from Afghanistan, according to the United Nations is undermining everything the government and its international allies were trying to do, he said. Afghanistan’s opium production grew by 34 percent this year, according to a U.N. survey.

    We also have an article from Michael that was printed in the New York Post on Sunday.

    INSIDE THE SURGE.

    HOW ORDINARY IRAQIS ARE TURNING THE TIDE OF WAR

    By MICHAEL YON.

    Statistics in reports about faraway places can blunt the reality of what those numbers mean. But when it is a bomb in a road you are about to drive on, it takes on a whole new cast, as I found yet again when I spent most of May in Anbar Province.

    I visited a former labor camp nicknamed “Coolie Village,” or what remained of it, after a truck bomb locals attributed to al Qaeda had flattened it. Not surprisingly, the anger and frustration in response to this mass murder helped the villagers overcome their fear of the thugs who had taken hold of their community. [Continue reading.]

    This is a link to a video of Michael on CBN. It is encouraging!

    Next is an article from a talented young writer, okay, maybe not that young, but he certainly is talented. He has written many 10 questions…mostly to the candidates. This time he has written about Christianity. Preciously, to the Evangalical community.

    Is This the End of Evangelicalism in America?

    by Gregg Jackson.

    A disturbing sign of the state of American evangelicalism has appeared in the seventh year of the 21 st century in a Townhall.com article dated October 18,2007 entitled, “Why Evangelicals Should Support Mitt Romney” by Wayne Grudem. One of America’s most popular evangelical theologians, Grudem is trying to persuade evangelicals to vote a Mormon for president. Wayne Grudem’s “Systematic Theology” is the gold standard of evangelical doctrine and a sacred fixture in evangelical seminaries, pastor libraries and Bible studies.

    In it, he defines Mormonism as “clearly a false church.” He shows why Mormonism has never been included in the Christian Church: It contradicts major Christian doctrine regarding the person of God, Christ and His work and salvation plan. A cornerstone of the Mormon Church, Grudem writes, is the classic heresy of Saint Paul’s day – angel worship. In his book, Grudem insists that an orthodox Christian must practice the theology he reads. So why would he step forward to become part of the Mitt Romney propaganda blitz trying to mislead evangelicals into doing what would shock most evangelicals in American history: elect a Mormon for president? [Continue reading.]

    While some may find this contraversial, mainly those outside of the Church, there are many good questions in this article if you read it with an open mind.

    On the political side of the news, we have Congressman Duncan Hunter calling for the defeat of the Law of the Sea treaty (LOST).

    Hunter Calls on Congress: Kill the Law of the Sea Treaty.
    at RealTimeNews.

    Explaining the dangers of the treaty, Hunter detailed, “It is imperative that our nation does not surrender decision making power for military navigation or resource extraction, especially in this age of terrorism with technology and weapons proliferation. And adding a new set of UN bureaucrats with license to tax and adjudicate disputes is the last thing this country needs.” [Continue reading.]

    I also have a press release from the Nat’l Center for Public Policy Research, but I’d like to give you two other sources. One is from this organization, and she is a blogger (yeah!): Amy Ridenour’s National Center Blog: Law of the Sea: A Sinkable Treaty. Also, there is another article against this treaty which offers much information: The UN Law of the Sea Treaty.

    And last but not least, don’t forget to vote in the blogger awards this week.

    If you care to look around, I will have some more military articles for you in a while. Just not during Church time. 😉

    Update: I just received this news of legislation introduced to the House by Rep. Keith Ellison (D).

    Anti-Photo ID Legislation Would Promote Election Fraud, Says Group.

    “Representative Ellison’s proposal is fundamentally flawed and potentially harmful to the integrity of our democratic process,” said Project 21 chairman Mychal Massie. “Why invite that which can only lead to unimaginable fraud and corruption?” [Continue reading.]

    You will probably believe this, but I want the same treatment for airplane tickets, opening bank accounts, social security cards, work, etc. Then see what they have to say!

    Here is some news from Radio Free Asia (RFA).

    China Finds Tibetan Nomad Guilty Over Lithang Protest.

    A court in the southwestern Chinese province of Sichuan has convicted of subversion a Tibetan nomad who called for the return of the Dalai Lama at a horseracing festival in August.

    Ronggyal Adrak was tried at the Ganzi Autonomous Prefecture People’s Court in Dartsedo (in Chinese, Kangding) on Monday, Oct. 29, on charges of seeking to “split” the country and subvert state power during a public meeting Aug. 1 in Lithang county, sources in Lithang told RFA’s Tibetan service.

    Ronggyal Adrak told the judge from the dock: “When I shouted ‘Long live the Dalai Lama’ and called for the release of Tibetan political prisoners, I was detained and then formally arrested.” [Continue reading.]

    Another reason why we should cut all ties with the PRC Communist party, and invite Taiwan to join the UN in place of the unrecognized hoolagns!

    This is such a great program, please help us to show these wounded Sailors how grateful we are for their unselfish sacrifices. What this program entails is creating for them a life that is closer to the one they used to know before their injuries.

    I will be trying to raise more money than the Army, Marines and everyone else! for our Sailors to receive a laptop computer that is voice activated. This way, they can communicate with loved ones through e-mail, blog, keep a diary of their progress, etc.

    Soldiers’ Angels started this program a few years back. Won’t you consider saying, “Thank you” by donating today?

    The white rectangle says, “Make a Donation.” All monies go directly to the program. I receive nothing, and I would not accept anything. This is about them. So come on. Dig deep! We’ve got to beat the other branches, and we are behind. No matter. We always beat them in football, now we need some foot-soldiers to help put us over the top. 😉

    Thank you so much for any amount you spare. It all adds up, ya know. 🙂

    Hat tip: Laughing_Wolf over at Blackfive, and Blackfive.

    Update: Stix Blog has a very touching, angering, sweet, hard and emotional post that we all must read. For most of us, some of these are photos we’ve seen before. He has tastefully arranged them with commentary included. Please, if you read no other blog today, read this one. Write about it, pass it on, understand it to the best of your ability. This is what these brave men and women do to keep us safe. The least we can do is to honor them.

    Update 2: There are other sites for the other branches of our military, and I think it is only right that I provide them for you.

    I do have a request from any of you techie guys. I cannot seem to get the code to work here. Would you please help me? Thank you. 😉

    The Vets for Freedom are reaching out to many of us bloggers and members of their site so that we might spread the good news and good works which is happening in Iraq. I am now challenging you to join with us so that the Marxists do not have a chance to defeat America.

    To give you a teaser of their new item, Progress in Iraq. You will find it on the right sidebar in a rectangular button.

    • Despite an aggressive counter-insurgency posture, U.S. troop deaths have dropped, because they have slowly gained the trust of the population groups they are protecting (alongside Iraqi forces).
    • Fact: Since June, Coalition Forces casualties by IED have dropped by 78.3% (74 in June, 16 in October).

      Source: www.icasualties.org.

    This is a worthy cause and one we’ve been searching to join. Well, here’s your opportunity. Just think about it. All you have to do is write about the truth about what is happening in Iraq! You want to be a foot soldier? Join here. Thank you so much. 🙂

    I woke up today and ended up over at my computer. I cleaned out the whole system because sometimes you can really get a bunch of unwanted spiders and other crawly things in there. No kidding! They make the computer slower than molasses.

    After doing this, I went to my email to find this link to Right Truth. It is quite interesting, to say the least. She claims that we bloggers may be spending too much time on our computers and I must confess, she is correct.

    I am a home bound person, which means I was just sitting in my house doing nothing but waiting for my number to be up. That is, until I found the net! This brought life back into my little part of the world. Before I knew it, my little part had grown so large! Do I spend too much time here? Probably. What would you have me do? Watch that crap on the just-for-boobs-tube? NO! (Not unless there’s a football game on or an old show. lol)

    I am only 47, but my first stroke was when I was 22. Bummer? NO! How can I say this? I had a diabolical plan for when I graduation which was adverted. THANK GOD! Are you kidding? No, I’m not going to you ehat it was. lol. Too much info, don’t ya think? 😉

    Getting back to the point…go check out Right Truth’s post. If you’ve ever been over there before, you know she covers many issues in one post. This woman is better than I. My hats off to ya, Debbie. 😉

    Sorry I’m so late, but I’ve been setting up a site for someone who has about as much knowledge about blogger.com as I had about it when I first started. Wow. That brings back so many memories! I’ll never forget the time I forgot to save the template BEFORE I tried playing with it. Now I save them all just for the heck of it, even when I need to! lol.

    Anyway, I’m going to be busy for a minute. I’m going to add the trackbacks to my last post. I don’t really like to have my personal life out there, but I hope it helps someone who ends up with wrist drop. I may have a cast on, but I see no reason for that to stop me from blogging.

    I have filled out a petition to put an end to the theives over at the ACLU. Are you aware that our very own government PAYS them to do to us what we would not allow the government do? Nice, eh? NO! It isn’t. That is why we must put a stop to it right away.

    Would you please help me to do this by signing this petition today: Stop taxpayer funding of the ACLU. We always sit back and wonder what we can do. THIS is what we can do. Thank you so very much.

    I will be using this post as my Sunday open trackback post. I hope many of you would give this a mention on your own site. this really burns my hide. Thank you to all of you who help us.

    Many of my readers are familiar with the Daily News from Iran which is written by Dr. Zin. I have learned why we have not heard from him recently or seen any news on his site. It appears that they have frozen his site because he could not afford to keep running it without our contributions. Well, I’m not going to sit by and allow this to happen. Unfortunately, I am not rich. The total he needs is over $1000. I am going to be contributing $15. It may be small, but it will help. If we all give $15, it will only take 70 people to help get wonderful site back up and running. Remember how much information he brought to us? I believe he deserves this help.

    I have several articles and videos from John over at Stop the ACLU that you may have missed. Here they are ones I kept:

    Many of you know that I have been following a ‘moderate’ Muslim and what he has to say. I believe we should give him a chance, while others are not open to this idea. It is a decision that is totally up to you. I do, however, have a few articles from him if you are interested (and even if you’re not! lol). Here is an article written by Frank Gaffney: CAIR-TV on September 5, 2007 concerning CAIR.

    One of my favorite radio hosts and authors has written another marvelous article entitle, “10 “Inconvenient” Questions for Al Gore and His Fellow Man Made Global Warming Believers. Wow. This is a must read.

    Another good friend of mine lives in Japan. He was in television forum to discuss Japan’s pacifist constitution. Here are some of the things he wished he had time to discuss, seeing as it was hard enough to get a word in edgewise! lol Postscript of NHK Forum 1: Japan Has to Be a Pretty Boy in the Middle East? No way! and Postscript of NHK Forum 2: Inseparable Alliance between Japan and the United States. Here are some of the issues that he actually had the opportunity to mention in the forum: Media and Jurists’ Humiliation to the Iraq War and the War on Terror. These are a little long, but they are well worth your time. Besides being important issues, he is a fine writer.

    Last, but by no means least, I have two articles from Michael Yon. These are always must reads, so I’ll just say that before I post them. Here they are: A Marine. A Mentor. A Model Approach. and Ghosts of Anbar, Part IV of IV. Michael has also started a channel on YouTube. If you would like to subscribe to it, click here. Then click on the subscribe button right there by Michael’s name.

    Well, I guess that’s enough news for a little while. Boy, I can hardly wait for tomorrow…arghh! This is just the news I’ve saved. Oh brother!

    This is Saturday, and everyone is probably out having a great time. I hope they are. I received some sad news tonight as I was putting this together, but I am not at liberty to discuss it. All I can do is ask you to continue praying and supporting our men and women in the Armed Forces who are protecting our butts so we can write crap like this that means so little when you realize what we are really facing…this is my open trackback post.

    95%How Addicted to Blogging Are You?LOL. There is no way this test of 14 questions can be accurate. Just because I found something I like, and I can find more news online does not make me an addict! Just because I’ll blog about anything (such as this!) does not make me addict. Just because I have over 5 blogs, they did not allow me to explain that I’m trying to move each site over to this one so I could blog quicker and about everything right here. No, this is not nor is it an accurate test of my character. I refuse to be an addict, plain and simple! Come on, guys, I already gave up the booze. What more do you want?! 😉

  • Ohio Democrats PROTECT racial segregation. They are still racist bastards.
  • Airforce Ready To Deploy The Reaper.

  • Sign the 2007 Prime Cuts Citizen’s Demand!
  • August Porker of the Month: Rep. Jim Oberstar.
    And so much more

    This next article is from Michael Yon, and it is called, “Ghosts of Anbar, Part III of IV: A Model for Success.” (If anyone happens to have part 2 of this series, I would appreciate it if you could email it to me. I don’t remember seeing it.)

    Here we go again, and you’ll never guess who is alerting us to this prejudiced action. M. Zudhi Jasser, MD, of American Islamic Forum for Democracy. The name of the article is School to provide Muslim students with foot baths, and it is written by Andrea Billups over at Washington Times.

    There are also many bloggers I’ve read today and yesterday.

    I have written an article to introduce to the Committee to Protect Bloggers (CPB). Now I will introduce you to the very great work they do.

    This one is about Abdul Kareem Nabeel Suleiman. He is a young Egyptian blogger who has been sentenced (back in February of this year) to 4 years in prison for ‘contempt of religion’ and 1 year for ‘defaming the president of Egypt.’ There is, however, a group (Free Kareem) which has been trying to free this man. Their campaign would you sign a petition, and I am asking you to do so as well. You may reach them at their site. Thank you.

    If you think your freedom of speech has been infringed, listen to this:

    Mideast Youth reports that Kuwaiti blogger Bashar Al-Sayegh was arrested on August 19, according to the blog Forza Kuwait. According to the blog The Kuwaiti, “Bashar Al-Sayegh was arrested and beaten yesterday by the Kuwaiti Secret Police for an anonymous comment on Bashar’s forum regarding the Amir (which was deleted).”

    An update on The Kuwaiti’s post says Bashar has been released. The Kuwait confirms it and sends pictures.

    This, too, is care of CPB. Now on to one of those friendly allies: Turkey.

    WordPress Blocked in Turkey

    According to Matt Mullenweg, the founder of the WordPress blogging platform, the hosted version of the program, WordPress.com, has been blocked in Turkey.

    It looks as though a law suit brought against a Turkish internet company by an individual resulted in allegedly libelous material being brought down by a wholesale blocking of the popular platform.

    This is still very odd. Some say it was on purpose, others an accident. Some say the military was involved, some say an Islamic creationist.

    Nice guys, eh? All of you people using WordPress have cause to be as upset as I am. So you did not think they could come after you because you are in America?

    Tips to CPB

    If you become aware of a threat to a blogger, or of the action of a government that is likely to have an effect on blogging, please let us know. Also, if you have been called in for questioning, let us know and indicate whether you would like us to post on it, or to have a post ready in the eventuality that you do not return home by a certain time. We have done this for bloggers in the past.

    Please do not wait until there is no one left to help you before you respond…

    This group, the Committee to Protect Blogger (CPB), is one of the most useful sites I have come across in my three years of blogging. These people really go to bat for us to protect our free speech, and they warn us and inform us about the people who have been imprisoned in different countries so that we can come together, no matter our political stripes, to try to free these people.

    You have absolutely no idea how many people are taken away never to be heard from again until there is in outcry from the international communitees. While these countries, Iran-the ME-China-etc., do this on a continual basis; they do also do not like the negative attention given them. These are countries that actually care what their reputation outside of their respective countries are. It is up to all of us, Liberals and Conservates and everyone in-between, to shame these countries so that we may possibly save some lives. It has been done.

    Have you ever noticed that sunlight is the best disinfectant? Yes, it has been and will continue to be. I hope I count on you to spread the word that CPB is back in business, and I also expect you to put this organization on your sidebar. Why? There is no telling when it may be YOU they are after next…

    Whether Michael Yon uses pictures or words, he gets his message across with words that are not meant to confuse, boast, spin, or go above one’s pay grade. He has written a very good article about what was going on in Iraq before left for ‘somewhere in Indonesia’. The name of it is Three Marks on the Horizon.

    If you would like to read a blogger’s up-close eye view, this is the site I recommend for you. Michael Yon has been to Iraq and Afghanistan with the only assistance coming from you and me. He is not on anyone’s side except American’s. How precise and rare that is these days…

    Read Full Post »

    Michael Yon is one terrific guy, but gosh, can he move or what? I write one post and it seems as though there are three more of his! Oh, I’m not really complaining. NO! I love his writings most of the time. At least I know I will get a glimpse of what is really happening and truthfulness.

    Well, let’s get down to it. I have been backed up pretty much on everything, and Michael is no exception. Let me confess right now. I’ve taken on too much. I have too many sites, and that is why I started this one. Everything goes here, as you now know. One blog, well, two. I have kept my DoD Daily News-2 blog for military news. I just have to know what is happening, because I certainly am not getting any news from our media.

    And that brings us back to Michael. This is how I found Michael around three years ago. I am certainly grateful that I did. Here are his latest articles:

  • 7 Rules: 1 Oath.
  • American Legacy: Wayne Downing.
  • Bird’s Eye View, The Battle for Baqubah.
  • Video.
  • Bread and a Circus: Part One.
  • These are full of information you will never read in our newspapers. I highly recommend you spend some time really trying to educate yourself about what is happening over here. Do not let anyone bamboozle you. You are smarter than that. You are more deserving than the junk you’ve been receiving as ‘news.’ Have a wonderful day.

    Jack Lewis: I Told You So…

    My dear friend, Danny, had written about this five weeks. What is ‘this’?

    A little over a month ago I predicted that we would soon have a case of food borne illness, due to sloppiness in the food industry, specifically related to the use of illegal immigrants in food processing plants. In spite of there being no case of botulism poisoning in three decades, last week it came true, and four people are now in serious condition in a Texas hospital.

    I guess I’m just fortunate. I’ve been boycotting China as best I could ever since Tienanmen Square on June 4, 1989. If you have no idea what I’m referring to, maybe this shall help. If you still do not understand beyond that, there is no hope for you!

    I could not believe my eyes when they fell upon an article that was written by Atlas Shruggs. Indeed, there is a Madrassa in New York State, and no one is saying a word. The reason people should have been out of sorts is because this is a public school. Where is the Anti-Christian Legal Union (in referrance to the American Communist Legal Union)?

    It appears this is not the first case of religious discrimination either. They have been trying this all over the country! With Saudi money I would imagine.

    It is a good thing that Atlas Shruggs has operatives all over the country as well. Please visit the site (the article I’m referring to is in the link to Atlas Shruggs), and become educated with this. It is obvious that the dinosaur media will never grow the backbone it requires to admit they are Americans first, journalists second. We will never hear a peep about this.

    Thank you, Atlas Shruggs. Keep up the great work.

    This is horrendous. If there is hunger in the world? Blame America. If there is a flood in the world? Blame America. If there is torture, stoning, raping, murder, or any other criminal offence in Iran? Blame America?!

    Serendip has written a very worthy and timely article about the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). They are supposedly a human rights group, but Iran has used this trick before. They know what will move public opinion, unlike some people we know, and they use it against us.

    Who could say human rights is not a good cause? From these people? ME! How dare they come onto our soil, go into our Congress, and try to persuade them to relieve Iran from the sanctions. Do you know why? BECAUSE THE SANCTIONS ARE WORKING!

    Please stop over at Serendip’s blog, and read about this. They are as bad as CAIR, if not worse. We must be louder and more active than these make believe groups. They are not civil rights groups. They are beholden to the Ayatollah Khomeini. Don’t ever forget that.

    Since I do not have the expertise that these people whom I am going to direct you to have, I think it best to do this in that manner.

    Here are some of the sources:

    Laura Mansfield web site: Bin Laden stresses martyrdom in short segment of new As Sahab video.

    Video Web Link from Laura Mansfield web site.

    CNN: Newly released bin Laden video calls for martyrdom.

    ABC News: Possible New Message From Osama Bin Laden.

    FOX News: Osama Bin Laden Appears in New Video, Officials Probe Authenticity.

    Hadeeth Sunnah Sahih Bukhari, Book 52. Fighting for the Cause of Allah (Jihaad). Quote from Volume 4, Book 52, Number 54.

    I would personally go to Laura Mansfield’s and Counter Terrorism Blog for any serious discussion of what is happening in the world today. They are very prolific in history as well.

    This made me so angry as I watched it. I have been doing what I can to help our troops, even though it’s only a little bit. What NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN have done to the morale of not only our troops but to the people of America is a lie, it is outrageous, and it is close to treason. After all, what is the definition of treason?

    1. Now rare. The betrayal of any trust or confidence; breach of faith. 2. The offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance, or (in monarchies) to kill or personally injure the sovereign or his family. Treason against the United States is defined by the Constitution (Art. III, sec. 3) to consist “only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving aid and comfort to them.” Syn. See SEDITION.

    Another article from CentCom:

    20 June 2007
    Story and photo by Cpl. Rick Nelson
    2nd Marine Division
    .

    HADITHAH — The counter-insurgency coalition forces are conducting in Iraq calls for numerous military units to give up their traditional roles and pick up a different weapon. This is nothing new for artillery units, who, since the Battle of Fallujah in November of 2004, have often been called upon to put away their howitzers for rifles, police batons, and claims cards. All around Iraq, artillery batteries and battalions are serving as provisional rifle, military police, and civil military units. In Hadithah, it’s no different.

    At the Hadithah Civil Military Operation Center, Marines assigned to 5th Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, an artillery battalion based out of Camp Lejeune, N.C. assist the local populace with their civil matters. [Continue reading.]

    This is a good article. We need to know more about the counter-terrorism that is taking place. One place to learn a lot is a site by the name of CounterTerrorismBlog. Visit it often. Have a blessed day.

    Today I have read an article by Mohammed of Iraq the Model (ITM), and I must say I concur. The Middle East is a hot spot today, to those of you who have no idea about the Middle East. To those who live there, to those who have become educated, it is an ongoing cycle that must be broken in order for victory to be achieved.

    We have Israel in a war with Hamas and Hizbollah, and we have the Coalition Forces and Iraqis in a war with ex-Ba’athists, militias, Syrians, Saudis and Iranians. Iran is on the verge of gaining nuclear weapons capability, and all the people on the outside want to do is talk. They do not understand the mindset of the Middle East.

    The one with the most strength and endurance is the victor. It has been this way forever. The Revolutionary War took 8 years! The last Brit to leave was evacuated from Brooklyn, NY November 25, 1783. If our freedom was worth this much rancor, so is the Middle East’s. (Source: REVOLUTIONARY WAR TIMELINE.)

    We have talked for years as Iran used its knowledge to develop nuclear weapons. What did this achieve? The Iranian people suffered more at the hand of Ahmadinejad, human rights were grossly violated daily, people were murdered in prison by the guards. Some of them were raped. Where is the outrage? Where are the investigations?

    We have forced Israel to sit at the table with terrorists who are bent only on their destruction, and what did Israel get in return? War. Let me ask you this: If President Bush wanted to sit down with Osama bin Laden after September 11, 2001, would you have agreed with him or have him impeached? I know my answer, so why should Israel’s be any different?

    We have to put an end to these terrorists, and that means killing them dead. If it takes a few tapings of rubbing their faces in pigs blood and showing it to the Middle East to show we mean business, maybe then they would get the message. Their families would be disgraced, they would not be going to heaven, and the next time you kill another innocent? We take someone from Gitmo and slit his throat after dipping the knife in pigs blood.

    My heart aches everyday as I hear about the Iraqis, Lebanese, Israelis, and Iranians dying. Let us get serious, and understand once and for all: WE ARE AT WAR.

    This was first posted at My Newz ‘n Ideas.

    Since I reported yesterday, there has been more disturbing news about the police officer, Agent Maussili Kalaji. Fausta from The Bad Hair Blog has continued to translate El Mundo into English for those of us in America (or other English speaking countries.)

    According to today’s story in El Mundo [available by subscription only], the apartment belongs to Syrian brothers Mouhannad and Moutaz Almallah, jailed for the Madrid attacks. In Moutaz’s case, the police considers him a very important operative within Al Qaeda, and speculates that he might have worked as liaison between the terrorist organization and the actual terrorists in the attacks. The police agent who “liberated” the 3/11 cell phones [i.e., Kajali] has explained that the document [the sale of property from the Agent to the terrorist, my addition] originates from the 1998 sale of a different apartment to Moutaz.

    Frank Gaffney has a more cautious take on this. Is it possible that it wasn’t either one of those groups that set off the bomb? Why didn’t they hand over the x-ray of the “lost” backpack for 3 months after the Judge asked for it? Why was his (ex-)wife the first officer on the scene of an investigation he was going to investigate? Many questions, not enough answers yet to come to ANY conclusion.

    Even Arthur Chrenkoff has a few questions. He also has some links to very good articles covering this issue.

    There is a fabulous chart over at The Adventures of Chester which ties together all the links that we know of so far. Please remember, they may not mean a thing. Then again, they may.

    I would like to thank Fausta, who also wrote this and this. I would also like to thank Arthur Chrenkoff, Frank Gaffney, The Adventures of Chester, and BarcePundit, also who wrote this, this, and this. Have a great day, everyone!

    With all the fighting and bloodshed in Iraq, we never hear the good news. Well, here is some from .Evan Kohlmann over at Counter Terrorism.

    “Security Forces conducted a raid in Mosul May 13 resulting in the capture of Salim Yussef Ghafif Huseyn, aka Abu Daoud. Abu Daoud [who] is the chief facilitator of the majority of terrorist suicide car bombings in Mosul, for the terrorist group of Abu Talha associated with Zarqawi terrorist network. Intelligence sources have placed Abu Daoud as a very close confidant and terrorist cell leader of Abu Talha [Zarqawi’s lieutenant in charge of Mosul –see Al-Qaida leadership chart]; together they are directly responsible for numerous attacks against innocent Iraqi citizens.

    Abu Daoud was responsible for obtaining vehicles and converting them into car bombs by packing them full of explosives. In previous incident, Security Forces have captured in April Abu Fateh, a financier for Abu Talha. With the capture of Abu Daoud, Multi-National forces continue to make considerable progress against terrorists in the Mosul area.”

    I highly recommend this site if you are interested in unbiased news about the war against terrorism. They usually know about things before the White House or Capitol Hill does! How? They keep their eyes and ears open, and they do not let political correctness get in the way. They are not running for any office, so they are not confined to any constituency except one–the truth.

    Mr. President: I told you so

    I have been reading about Mr. Sean Treglia who used to work at Pew Charitable Trusts. You would think the press would be all over this. They are not. You would think the bloggers would be all over this. They are not. Oh, some have written a few sentences here and there, but nothing like Rathergate. Why or why not?

    This is the feedback I wrote to them:

    “Good afternoon. I have been reading articles that are stating that Mr. Sean Treglia “broke the spirit of the law” (his words) while giving a speech at USC. Is this true?

    This has to do with the Philadelphia-based branch and campaign finance reform. I would like to have your side of the issue before I go to print. If I do not hear from you, I will assume the NY Post and the Opinion Journal are correct in their statements. I would be very disappointed if this is the case.

    Do you understand how much damage you have done? (If this is true.)

    I understand he no longer works there. Was he fired because of this? I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. It goes to print Tuesday evening.

    Thank you for your time.

    I told them I am from the Americans for Truth and Justice, which is true. I am for truth, and I am for justice. I am also very American! So what is the big deal I am talking about?

    Mr. Sean Treglia gave a speech at USC, and he virtually confessed to fruad. It was all intended for the 535 people in power in Washington, DC. He also did much damage to you and me.

    How did he do that? Ryan Sager of the New York Post online has obtained a video tape of a conference held at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication in March of 2004 about how he got away with scamming the Congress and Senate into voting for Campaign Finance Reform, otherwise known as Incumbent Security Reform. See for yourself:

    Charged with promoting campaign-finance reform when he joined Pew in the mid-1990s, Treglia came up with a three-pronged strategy: 1) pursue an expansive agenda through incremental reforms, 2) pay for a handful of “experts” all over the country with foundation money and 3) create fake business, minority and religious groups to pound the table for reform.

    “The target audience for all this activity was 535 people in Washington,” Treglia says — 100 in the Senate, 435 in the House. “The idea was to create an impression that a mass movement was afoot — that everywhere they looked, in academic institutions, in the business community, in religious groups, in ethnic groups, everywhere, people were talking about reform.”

    Well, well. How about that? Do you realize the FEC is going after bloggers’ free speech? Go ahead and sit pretty in your cubicles, but when that day comes and you’ve said and did nothing, I don’t want to hear it.

    So what can we do? We can have Congress investigate this? Yeah right. They already look like fools to me. How about having the President tell the Justice Department to look at it? Yeah right. He’s the one who signed it into law in the first place. I called so many times trying to reason with him, and he signed it anyway. No. We can’t even go to the IRS, because Treglia was careful enough to disclose to them what he was doing.

    So what now? We go to the Federal Elections Board? They are the ones trying to shut you and me down. I’m thinking, alright?! The next election is coming. We can make this a big issue. A law has been given, and a law can been taken away!

    Campaign only for people who promise to fight illegal aliens and to repeal the campaign finance reform law. We have to come together. I don’t believe Republicans or Democrats like being duped. Let us show the press that if they do not do their jobs, we will.

    If the press had investigated this, PEW would have been laughed out of DC. The PEW has/had no credibility in Washington, according to Mr. Treglia. That is why the people who ran the ads did not include the fact that the PEW Trust fund had financed them.

    This is illegal. This violates the transparency issues. Of $140 million dollars, $123 million was received from only 8 fundraising organizations. Yes, Soros was one of them. They want to silence us, so we must not let that happen. Keep this story alive. I want him behind bars. I’m pretty sure there will be updates to this.

    My friend Jack of Clubs has been doing a very good job on keeping everyone informed about this. He has a list of everyone he knows who has written an article about this. Please visit his site to get more ideas. Thank you, and keep on blogging!

    I know a great blogger by the name of Jack of Clubs who has provided many blogs who have written articles on this topic. This topic is about the scam that many and I have been screaming about: Incumbent Protection Reform, otherwise know as Campaign Finance Reform.

    It is a scam, and it finally hit the New York Post, of all places. As I promised him, I will be writing my own article on this issue. I just had to put in down for a while due to high blood pressure, which I never had before! I don’t have it now, I was just exaggerating.

    Look forward to my taking this article to heart, and taking these people whom I will name to task. I will also give us a channel to place our rage. You will have some, if you care about reading any blogs. You will have some, if you care about your free speech.

    “Indo-Pak. Peace Treaty talks Move Forward”
    By Iftikhar Gilani.

    NEW DELHI: India and Pakistan have signed a nine-point agreement to improve cooperation between border forces but India refused Pakistan’s demand to stop fencing and constructions near the border.Indian and Pakistani border forces agreed to combine efforts against border crimes such as smuggling and human trafficking and strengthen border patrols after four days of talks in Chandigarh between India’s Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistan Rangers.” Full story. Unfortunately, I learned that I should have stored this article, because many people and newspaper move the articles. My apologies.

    American firms to establish training centre to help the Pakistan Economy.

    “Since there has been 5 years of cooperation with America on the war on terrorism, Pakistan has kick started their economy. Enpointe and Ovex technologies will work together with Pakistan firms to build the centre at a cost of $6 million. 1,000 accounts experts will be trained in the next 2 years. Gov. Maqbool is hopeful the centre will bring about a revolution in e-commerce and technology.” Wouldn’t it be nice if the only wars were trade wars?!

    “…PMKP had decided to hold a two-day ‘World anti-imperialist conference’ in Lahore from November 27, said the communist leader…Political parties from Afghanistan, Nepal, India, Britain and the Philippines had confirmed their participation in the conference… Azeem said it was the form of government system that had failed in the former Soviet Union and not communism or socialism. The communist system was for the welfare of mankind, he said.” Full story.

    “…Despite a fragile ceasefire signed between the government and the rebels in April, ethnic conflict, attacks on civilians and clashes between Sudanese armed forces and rebels have all increased, Mr Da Silva said. The UN panel appointed by Mr Annan has been given three months to report back on the situation .

    Kurdistan:

    This is a story I recommend you read. The Kurdish peoples helped us tremendously. Now it is time for us to help them. You should visit a great Kurdish site at Kurdistan Bloggers Union (KBU).

    Sorry about the missing links. This happened in my very beginning of getting my own site. I have learned so much since then. (Hardly enough!) Just for your convenience, I have started keeping a record of writings just in case this occurred again. I don’t remember how long ago I started this site, but it is mostly what others have written. Some of it includes other writers of Love America First. This makes sense, because the name of the site I am referring to is Love America First-2.) 🙂

    MSM v. Bloggers

    Now, now. Do not be dismayed. I can hear the gnashing of teeth all the way over here in CA! Do not be dismayed. What we are witnessing is the blowing up of the MSM (Main stream media.) Do you honestly believe that even middle of the road persons will believe the “news” they receive? I do not. The hard left I am not worried about, because they will not change anyway. Let us begin with some other aspects of CBS.

    On May 15, CBS led the charge that the CIA should have known about the planes flying into a building, ergo President Bush should have known. They spewed out a litany of events that have occured or been attempted since 1994. Now, let me ask you…who was in office for the 6 years since this intelligence was received? Hmmm. Second, how did CBS get their hands on the PDP? (Presidential Daily Briefing) The next day Tom Dascle, Hillary Clinton, and another person came to the well of the Senate demanding answers. My my. How could you organize such an attack unless you had prior knowledge? How can we find who gave highly classified information to CBS? Look to who protesteth the loudest!

    It was the blogosphere that first noticed that CBS may have been handed a forgery for it’s show Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2004. We contacted CBS, a few people that are expert in the field of handwriting-to determine authenticity, and questioned the daughter and son of the Kerry supporter who made the commercial and the claim that he helped get President Bush into the ANG (Air Nat’l Guard.) First, he claims he used his influence. Okay, but he had no influence because he didn’t become Governor until AFTER President Bush was already in the ANG. Second, he has always been a Democrat. Third, he is working for John Kerry and has been promised a position in his cabinet! Well, I won’t go into any more, because it isn’t necessary.

    Bloggers Rule! Writers without credit are being credited for opening many doors to the unholy rail of news. We are making a difference, so don’t be discouraged. Even if 1 person reads your blog, you may point that person in the correct direction. I suggest everyone research on their own. Go to Mudville Gazette (please give a couple of dollars for equipment needed so he can continue to blog as he goes to defend America), Drudge Report, Instapundit, The Kommentariat (Milblog), Washington Times, Opinion Journal, Sean Hannity, Hugh Hewitt and many others. They have more information than I, since I try to give a different take on a story. I want to encourage you.

    We do make a difference. We do prove that a crime has been committed, when no one else is paying attention, and we make the MSM stand up and pay attention! I’d say that’s enough for all of you to give yourselves a big pat on the back! Thank you, and God bless and keep your families, you, the USA’s Military, and the USA! And God, please let the gun ban fall through the cracks! Sorry, just had to throw that in there! It’s up Monday!!! YEAAHHH!

    Working on blogs, AARRRGGGG!

    As you may have noticed, I have been trying to make my site look more presentable. HA! It doesn’t help that I don’t know what I’m doing, but come on! I did it before, so what is different now? I was trying to put an Iraqi “Support the Pro-Demacracy Party!” button in my template, and that is what got the whole thing started! Oh well. I hope you can still read it. I will be writing an article on the holocaust-in Iraq, and the mass graves deserves an article, also. Well, everyone have a blessed day, and I’ll see ya in passing!

    This is a column I came across during my early morning surfing. I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did.

    Positive story from Iraq.

    The Ashbrook Center blog has an interesting story about an Iraqi officer’s encounters with the US forces and how they changed his life. (Hat tip to Iraq the Model again!)

    If you’re not reading Iraq the Model regularly, you should. I’m only telling you the highlights.

    Democracy in Iraq

    Democracy in Progress is a very good site to find information on news that IS fit to print! These 3 brothers have covered many of the stories we have been looking forward to reading. This recent article tells about the National Conference that has just concluded. Were you aware there was a three day, 1000-1300 persons gathering to promote the next 81 people that would represent the Iraqi people? Oh, I’m not surprised. It was barely a whisper in the USA. How sad. Maybe if someone had slugged the chairperson…but then again, they don’t want to look too much like American politicians! 🙂

    National Conference is Born is an article written by Zeyad. It is a very well documented account of the National Conference. Please, read it. His site is Healing Iraq. Zeyad is a very intelligent man who has a heart for Iraq that is very big, and he reports on subjects of many interests. He is working very hard to heal his country, and we should do what we can to help.

    Iraqi Pro-Democracy Party is the party that Ali and Mohammed have joined, and they are running for the Assembly (or whatever it ends up being named!) These are two of the three brothers that have been writing Iraq the Model all this time so we would know the truth. Let us continue to support them. Please continue to pray for them. I am calling to arms every man and woman. By arms I mean “put your money where your mouth is!” and “tell everyone you meet or see about the good news in Iraq, including Ali and Mohammed.” In America, we have learned to do our fighting at the ballot box, I hope! 🙂 Everyone have a great and blessed day.

    Sweet revenge turns sour

    Today, July 26, the Iraqi football team walked away proud, as they won 2-1. I would continue the story, but today is Sunday, Aug. 1, 2004! While Iraq did win against Saudi Arabia, it gives me pain to let you know we lost to China on Friday, July 30. The pain doesn’t come from to whom we lost, but that we lost at all. I wanted so much for the Iraqis to have a win under their belt.

    That brings me to the next subject: the Olympics! In just 11 days from now (on the 12th,) Iraq will be playing against Portugal at Pompeloponisiaka Stadium in Patra. Then Iraq will go to Athens to play at the Olympic Stadium on August 15 against Costa Rica at Karaiskaki Stadium. Finally, they will play Morocco on August 18 at Pampeloponisiaka Stadium in Patra. Let us keep praying for them to have a victory! Go Iraq, go! Olay!

    I would like to give credit to Souran, who gave this information to Nabil on his blogs comments. Thank you both. Many blessings for your families and yourselves.
