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?

Amazingly enough, even the New York Times gets it right once in a while. Today, the fourth article in their business section is Frontline Blogger Covers War in Iraq With a Soldier’s Eyes. I’ve read it, and Mr. Richard PÉrez-PEÑA has done a very good job on capturing the man we know as Michael Yon. Please go read it. Have a great day.

Politics 101

If you have no plans, no policies, no ideas, make up a big lie and have everyone including the press repeat it. Sooner or later they will give in and believe you. Rosemary

If you intend to run for office, have strong convictions, a way to easily convey your message, always remain true to your convictions, and be satisfied with the outcome. Rosemary

One of these quotes was written about the Left, one of them was written about Conservatives. It is up to you to decide which is which. If it takes you more than an instant, maybe you should do some soul searching and a lot more reading about the founding of our great country!

I have a few articles I would like to share with you in this post. The first one has to with an angry Senate who does not have the time to fund our troops, yet it can vote to hold in contempt Karl Rove, retired political advisor to President Bush, and Josh Bolton, President Bush’s Chief of Staff. Hat tip to Fox News.

Lawmakers of both parties say Congress shouldn’t threaten to cite someone with contempt and not follow through.

“I vote for the contempt citations knowing that it’s highly likely to be a meaningless act,” Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., said. “In this context we have no alternative.”

Specter and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, joined 10 Democrats to report the citation to the full Senate. All seven no votes came from Republicans. [Continue reading.]

Apparently the Congress would like to peek at privileged discussions about the firing of 8 US Attorneys, rather than do the work they were hired to do. If you ask my opinion, the president did not fire enough of them! Hey, do you think I can have a peek of Hillary’s notes taken by one her aides? Hmm…lol.

Next I would like to discuss my friend who happens to be a talk show host, Gregg Jackson. He was interviewed by Jan Mickelson because Gregg used to live in Massachusetts under Gov. Romney’s Commonwealth Care. There are many things the public has yet to learn about this man, and all you have to do is listen to Jan’s taped interview. The link for this the one which includes Jan’s name.

It is amazing to me how Conservatives can allow themselves to be led around by their noses just to remain in power. If we have no Conservative, I’d rather not be in office. At least that way, we would stop being blamed for all of these RINO’s. (Republican in name only.) I’m certain the Left feels as strongly about their candidates as I do. After all, we just have a difference of policy opinions. We are not enemies. At least I hope not.

For a change of venue, let us look at the House of Representatives. I don’t know if they are representing you and me, but they certainly are representing al Qaida! I love the way Jay puts it: “222 morons would rather have blood on their hands for following a moronic moral code that is politically popular than to do what’s necessary to save lives when it comes down to it. No matter, this bill’s final fate ends with the President’s veto pen. I have a feeling we will all soon be missing President Bush on some issue. Hat tip: Stop the ACLU.

This next one is an e-mail, and they don’t have a link for it. Therefore I am going to present it in its entirety, because it is that important.

Black Activists Condemn Philadelphia City Council’s Boy Scout Eviction.

Washington, D.C. – Black activists from the Project 21 leadership network are condemning the Philadelphia City Council’s decision to evict the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) from its regional headquarters after the city failed to reach a compromise with the Boy Scouts on a gay rights policy.

“I live close to Philadelphia and am aware of the problems plaguing the city,” said Project 21 member Jimmie Hollis. “The fact that the City Council is taking exception to the Boy Scouts is an outrage. With so much to fix, why are they so willing to instead hobble an organization trying to help people?”

On June 1, the BSA’s Cradle of Liberty Council will be forced out of the Bruce Marks Council Service Center because it will not rescind its policy of prohibiting homosexual members. City Councilman Darrell L. Clarke told the New York Times, “you cannot be in a city-owned facility being subsidized by the taxpayers and not have language in your lease that talks about nondiscrimination.” This date became final last week when the City Council broke off negotiations with the BSA.

BSA spokesman Gregg Shields told the Times, “we believe that open homosexuality would be inconsistent with the values that we want to communicate with our leaders.” This policy was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000, when the Court ruled the BSA is a private organization that can set its own membership rules under the protection of the First Amendment.

The Marks Center was built by the BSA, but the half-acre parcel of land on which it is located is owned by the city. A city council vote last May struck down the ordinance that granted the BSA a special $1 a year lease. BSA leaders say they cannot pay the estimated market-value lease of $200,000 a year while continuing to serve their 69,000 local members, provide in-school training and after-school mentoring programs and send 800 needy children summer camp.

While the Cradle of Liberty Council was thought to be willing to enact a policy statement previously agreed to by the BSA’s New York chapters saying that “prejudice, intolerance and unlawful discrimination in any form are unacceptable” without dropping its homosexual prohibition, Philadelphia officials preemptively said that, if it did so, the BSA would still be violating the city law.

“If the Boy Scouts were anti-God, championed homosexuality and were anti-establishment, I would venture to say they would find themselves welcome in Philadelphia. It’s the fact that they stick to and seek to promote a responsible and reasonable code of ethics that makes them a target of the anti-family left that tends to dominate urban governments such as Philadelphia’s these days,” said Project 21 chairman Mychal Massie.

Project 21, a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, has been a leading voice of the African-American community since 1992. For more information, contact David Almasi at (202) 543-4110 x11 or David Almasi, or visit Project 21’s website at Project 21.

This just really makes me want to cry. Maybe if we chopped off a few heads they would stop bothering us? Cowards!!!

I have saved one of the best for last. Have you heard about what Pope Benedict XVI had to say about the hoax of climate change? It is wonderful to finally be on the side of science, where we started, and to have all the fearmongers on the on the humanist, irrational side. If you would care to read a well reasoned article, the link is right here. Hat tip: Sonnabend.

Well, that’s enough for now. I must be going. I still have several still to read. lol. Have a wonderful evening. 😉

    Republican Debate Oct. 9, 2007

    There is going to be another debate which will be held at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center at the University of Michigan (Dearborn). It will hosted by the Michigan Republican Party. Congressman Duncan Hunter will be participating in this debate. As stated, it will be held on October 9, 2007.

    The TV coverage will not be for those of us without cable, but if you do have cable you may watch it on CNBC who will be broadcasting the two-hour debate beginning at 4:00PM. MSNBC will re-broadcast the event at 9:00PM the same evening. I do believe that is Eastern Standard Time, but you may want to check with your TV guide.

    Have a great time, and write about it. I wantt to know how it goes. Would someone please keep count of the number of questions Duncan Hunter is allowed to answer without being cut off? He is my nominee, and I am getting tired of everyone else getting all the face time. If only they could hear him, then the party would not need to be so annoyed.

    Duncan Hunter is the true conservative on this stage, and he has served his country, our country, not only in the Congress, but also as a Marine and a Ranger. Check him out! His son is also running for Congress: Hunter for Congress. At this moment he is unable to campaign however, because he is in Afghanistan on his third tour of duty! (You may still help his campaign with a donation.) Vote Hunter! (Both ways, both times, and often. lol)

    Update: Duncan Hunter was interviewed by The Philadelphia Jewish Voice. It is a good interview. You should read it if you would like make an informed choice. Thank you.
