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?

Aaargghhh!

What a day. I’m telling you! I wake up, go to my computer, and Norton tells me I have a problem. They say I am vulnerable, so I am not about to open anything. Nope, I shut it all down. Then I hit Norton, and go to FIX NOW. Yeah, right. It tells me I do not need any updates, but Norton insists I do. Okay, so I go to Help and Support. Yeah, that really helped. They told me the same thing, that there was nothing wrong. Um, then why do I still have an exclamation point telling me I am vulnerable?

Anyway, you can figure out I got it fixed because I am writing this. I wouldn’t open blogger until I was protected. Why am I telling you this? Because it is after 11 pm, and I have to get my Open Trackback Alliance Weekend submitted! (Actually, it is open trackback Friday, so I need to get it in today.) So everyone enjoy.

Share your best posts, your funniest posts, or some other adjective posts. Just be sure to link me to the post you trackback with first. Have a wonderful night. 😉

There is a new Canadian blogger which just happens to be a Muslim who understands how precious liberty and freedom of speech are to a free society. Bravo!

The name of the site is Muslims Against Sharia. I really like this one post: Canada: Freedom of Speech succumbing to Kangaroo Courts of the Human Rights Commission. (Actually, every post is quite informative, well written, and good.) This is a must listen to recording of the Human Rights Commission in Canada against Ezra Levant. It will blow your mind.

Bravo, Ezra! BTW, would you like to know his crime? He published cartoons of Mohammed in the magazine where he works. His accuser? A Saudi radical idiot.

I will be adding this blog to my sidebar, because I believe this group deserves all the support we can give them. We want them to speak up, so when they do, we must speak up with them. We want them to be successful in their plight to make their voices heard. Thank you, everyone. Have a nice day.

UPDATE: Here is a list of Canadians who have been or are in the process of being silenced: Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, Fouad al-Farhan, Joe Kaufman, Ezra Levant, Mark Steyn, and you. You do not know if you are next, now do you? Hmm…You will find this post here: Islamofascist-Dhimmi Axis Assault on Free Speech: Latest Casualties at Muslims Against Sharia.

BTW, there is a free petition to help Mark Steyn fight back against these jihadi nuts. Please sign it. It is on top of the page, right underneath the title to this site. Thank you.

UPDATE II: It is with a heavy heart that I must report to you that we may have been deceived. I can understand being upset with someone for what they wrote, but if you are truly in support of free speech, you should at least be polite about your disagreement. I’m afraid that is not the case with Muslims Against Sharia. I am very disappointed and saddened and angry. What we need is someone in the Muslim community to stand up so that others may follow suit, but no. How can they when others try to take advantage of the goodwill of people? They deceive people that do not know them so they can intimidate people who do know them. Well, I do not like this. Not one bit.

What happened to make me change my mind? You should read the vulgarity used while leaving comments on other peoples’ sites! It is terrible! My friend, StageLeft (Meet Ezra’s New Non-Muslim “Muslim” Friends! and Quotes from the Scholars at “Muslims Against Sharia”) has gathered quite a few of them for you to read. Please be forewarned, they are vulgar. I could not believe my eyes. I guess mohammed does not care what type of language is used while trying to get your message out. I know for a fact that JESUS DOES CARE.

Good evening. I will be hosting an open trackback weekend, so feel free to share with others your fabulous works. I have quite a bit to do, so I shall be using this trackback post to add news and other information as the weekend progresses. Check back later, because I am going to adding some really great news from our military.

Now hold it! I said I was busy. This shall happen later or tomorrow. lol. Have a great weekend everyone, and say a prayer and/or hold good thoughts for our courageous men and women who are working to keep us free. We owe them more than we could ever repay. God bless them.

Update: As I had promised, I have three articles for you so far. One is about an amazing task that our Airmen were faced with when they reached Afghanistan, another is about the handing over of control of one of the bases in Iraq, and the best – a book that is written by the guys who actually went there and did that.

The team’s original mission was to mentor their Afghan counterparts and teach them medical skills to treat Afghan military and police members, said Air Force Col. Mike Skidmore, the team’s senior mentor officer and administrator.

All that changed when the team arrived several months ago, he said. The hospital was 500 days behind schedule, and instead of finding equipment and eager ANA medical personnel, the team found an empty, incomplete facility. “We had to move from a mentoring mission to a new mindset of equipping the hospital, opening it and then mentoring,” said Air Force Col. (Dr.) Thomas Seay, the senior medical mentor and chief radiologist. [Continue reading.]

Our guys are AWESOME! You really should continue reading this one. You will be amazed at what our men can accomplish but the government cannot. (lol)

Control of Multinational Division Baghdad changed hands during a ceremony here yesterday [December 19, 2007]. The 1st Cavalry Division will redeploy to Fort Hood, Texas, while 4th Infantry Division takes over operations in the Iraqi capital. Army Lt. Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, commander of Multinational Corps Iraq, presided over the ceremony. He said the battle in Iraq has changed significantly during the last year, and that the success could be directly linked to the 1st Cavalry Division’s efforts in and around Baghdad.

“Significant events are often a result of the right people being in the right place at the right time,” Odierno said. “In the case of Baghdad in 2006 and 2007, the right people were the magnificent men and women of Multinational Division Baghdad and their dedicated Iraqi security force partners.” [Continue reading.]

Ah, the sweet sounds of progress…

Like many Soldiers deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, Soldiers from the Oregon National Guard’s 2nd Battalion, 162nd Infantry brought their personal cameras to Iraq during their deployment in 2004. They snapped photos of each other firing weapons, shot video of explosives they detonated and logged plenty of footage of their own commentaries intermixed with Soldier humor.

But they never expected that their day-to-day antics would one day represent deployed National Guard Soldiers everywhere, preserved in a feature-length documentary film called “This is War: Memories of Iraq.” [Continue reading, really.]

This is one heck of a documentary. Here is a list of sellers from Amazon.com that ranges in price for the DVD. (I think it’s a DVD.)

The next set of military news shall be on the next open trackback. I do have to catch up with my writing. Everyone have a nice weekend, and I’ll see ya on the other side…God willing. 😉

This is a beautifully created video using Toby Keith’s song, ‘Whiskey for My Men, Beer for My Horses.’ It is very moving and touching. If you are a whoos like me, I recommend a tissue or two. You will be filled with pride, and you will also find it within you to carry on. God bless you all, and come home soon and well.

This was submitted to YouTube by Phil. Thank you, Sir. God bless your family and you.

Update: I found something rather disturbing, and I would like to clarify this before I even post it. There is a subscriber to Phil who may or may not be a racist. I cannot tell, because I refuse to look at anything that has the Klan attached to it in any manner. You may look for yourself at huntermark94. Disgusting if true. Please let me know if you happen to watch it. I’d like to know what I am putting out there. I understand he is just a subscriber, but still. The stench…

It does not, however, take anything away from Toby Keith’s song or himself. He is a fine man and a great artist!

How would you react if one day you awoke to find there are now laws against what you cannot say, what you must say, extra taxes you must pay because of your religion or lack thereof, and your money has been confiscated because it was not kosher?

It is coming, unless we do something about it. I was posting an article that Debbie over Right Truth had posted, and I found that an Englishman will be taken into custody by the police for having written the truth about these animals–jihadists. It is true. His name and site are Lionheart and you can find this information also on his site.

This is England! I guess I could say this was England. How very sad. What do you say about bombarding 10 Downing St., London, England, with letters of disapproval and disbelief? Maybe if we raise such an uproar we can turn tide of jihadists in England. One thing is for sure. This is no way to fight a war…

Alas, if that were the only problem, but I am afraid the whoa is more and close.

Coughlin sacked.

By Bill Gertz
Washington Times

Stephen Coughlin, the Pentagon specialist on Islamic law and Islamist extremism, has been fired from his position on the military’s Joint Staff. The action followed a report in this space last week revealing opposition to his work for the military by pro-Muslim officials within the office of Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England. [Continue reading.]

As for the banking situation, these money-grubbing bankers who belong to no country (or so they think) have embraced the Islamic Sharia Laws so much as to include them on the Board of Directors! So the world banks are now being managed by the BOD rather than the managers. Have you ever tried to reason with a board member? It is not as easy as you may imagine.

Here is an article for you to see what is actually happening to our finances and why.

“GLOBAL BANKS ADOPTING ISLAM”.

By Patrick Wood
Editor of The August Review

News with Views.

…With Great Britain now pledging to become the Islamic banking center of the world, the stampede by all global banks to enter the world of Islamic banking is well underway.

[snip]

The implications for the west, and especially for the United States, are staggering. Because all Islamic banking products must be created and offered according to strict Shari’a law, global banks are doing for Islam what it could never do on its own: give legitimacy to Shari’a and infiltrate it into the fabric of western society. [Continue reading.]

To complete-for now-this article, here is an article I found quite interesting. These words are true. Most Americans seem to forget (if we ever knew) about the jihad against the Hindus and Buddhists in India. It is written by Jerry Gordon of American Congress for Truth.

Now to the Open Trackback Weekend or Friday, whichever you prefer. It makes no mind to me. 😉

Friday Night’s OTA & OTB

I hope everyone has a very nice weekend. Don’t drink and drive, please. I’m not there to kick your butt, but there are enough police officers out there to do it for me. Besides, it’s the right thing NOT to do. Let’s all start the next year with all of our pieces in the places they belong. 😉

Also, I must admit that I will not be able to manually transfer over 7000 posts in a matter of days. The thing that bothers me the most is that I actually I could! LOL. Oh well. There will be projects that I shall try to accomplish that will seem impossible to others. Probably because they are, but I love a challenge. 😉

Stay safe and God bless.

This is good news for Rep. Duncan Hunter. To have one of the most Conservative senators (in New Hamphsire, no less!) endorse you is a big deal. Vermont is the first state to actually vote as we know it. Many people believe that whoever wins or suprisingly comes close to winning will go on to become president of the United States. Below is a copy of that endorsement:

Dear New Hampshire Friends:

After spending several weeks listening to all of the candidates, I have decided to support Congressman Duncan Hunter for President. I do not take this decision lightly. There are a lot of fine men running for this office and I know that many of you may have already made your choice. Your vote in the “First in the Nation Primary” is a very precious and personal right. Your decision will likely determine who will be the next leader of the free world. What an awesome responsibility! I only ask that you give serious consideration to the points that I make in this letter of endorsement for Congressman Hunter before you vote.

The Republican Party, but more importantly our nation, needs strong conservative and inspirational leadership as we continue to face the threats to our liberty in the form of immorality, corruption, terrorism, a mountain of debt, border insecurity, loss of jobs and attempts to weaken our national defense. Here is why Duncan Hunter is that leader!

I am sure that you are aware that I fought the battle for the conservative cause in New Hampshire for over 20 years. It was not an easy battle. Conservatives pay a heavy price for standing up for their principles. I can speak from personal experience on that. The Republican Party has lost its majority in Congress because it slowly and steadily has walked away from the “core values” that have made it a great party for the past 150 years in America . Remember Ronald Reagan? Liberals and moderates worked hard to defeat him in the New Hampshire primary in 1980 but he prevailed in spite of them! He will be remembered as one of our greatest Presidents because he stood on principle, but also because we conservatives in New Hampshire gave him the victory that propelled him to the White House! When President Reagan came into the oval office in the morning, he knew exactly where he wanted to take the country. He did not need an inbox full of directions, consultants, polls or focus groups to tell him what his core values were. There will never be another Ronald Reagan but fellow Californian Duncan Hunter can pick up the Reagan torch and light the way for America to come back from the dangers we now face. Congressman Hunter is a moral man, an inspirational leader and a no nonsense conservative who will always put “principle above politics” in the image of the late great New Hampshire patriot Meldrim Thomson.

I had the enormous privilege to serve with Congressman Hunter for 18 years in Congress. He has been my personal friend for nearly 25 years. I can personally attest that he is a man of impeccable moral and family values, a great patriot and a leader. I have seen him fight even when others were prepared to give up. Congressman Hunter inspired me and many other young conservatives in the 1980s to continue the fight even when it was bleak. This has not been an easy campaign for Congressman Hunter. While he has been out on the campaign trail his son has been serving in Iraq and the Hunters lost their entire home in the recent fires in Southern California . He has been largely ignored by the pollsters and the media. I urge the people of New Hampshire to send a message to the pollsters and the Washington media elite. The people elect a President not the pollsters! You have the opportunity to do for the nation what you did when you elected President Reagan in 1980 by sending Duncan Hunter out of New Hampshire with a big win and on to the White House in January of 2009! Can you imagine listening to CNN and all of the talking heads trying to explain how they were wrong as Hunter claimed victory? Wouldn’t that be worth the price of admission? You can make it happen with your vote in January! Do not be intimidated by these spinmasters. You control the destiny of America and not them!

The American people need to take control of this country. We are a republic, not a democracy. We elect leaders to stand up for us as they make decisions. Duncan Hunter has proven that he can lead. He has been tested. If given the chance as President, he will inspire people, young and old, to rally to our nation in this time of need. Congressman Duncan Hunter for 25 years has stood up for the rights of the unborn, to balance the budget, to cut the pork out of the spending bills, to strengthen our national defense by supporting our troops and providing them the weapons they need, to seal off our borders by building a fence along the US/Mexican border and to keep American jobs in America. He is a known entity. You do not have to guess about what he might do on these critical threats to our security. Imagine President Duncan Hunter leading our nation and using the “bully pulpit” to lead on these issues! I am proud to support this great American patriot for President. If you really want to see change, then I urge you to vote for him. He is what American needs now more than ever! Thank you!

Senator Bob Smith
Tuftonboro, N.H. and Sarasota, Florida.

As I remember, for full disclosure’s sake, Sen. Smith did leave the Republican Party for about a month or two while he was running for president in 2000. Many people did not forgive him for that. I was one of them. At least for a while.

Why did I not forgive him? If you want change, if you want to help, then you should do it from within. That used to be my philosophy. I do not know what has happened to my party, but it certainly is not the fiscally responsible, pro-life, pro- all the Amendments – the Constitution – the Declaration of Independence, and just plain decency along with the will to fight for what is believed to be correct. I do not see this anymore, and maybe Sen. Smith saw this before I did. Either way, all is forgiven. How could it not when I am sitting here wondering where can I go?

Today is Samantha Burns’ OTA Weekend and Open Trackback Linkfest Haven Oasis. Please have a nice weekend, and please have a wonderful and safe Merry ChristMass. Please keep our men and women who cannot be at home during this season because they are protecting our liberties close to your heart. Also remember their families, the empty chair for Daddy or Mommy, keep them in your prayers. Maybe if you know someone like that, you may even bake them some cookies or see if there is a need. Come on. ‘Tis the season to give. Thank you.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO HALOSCAN USERS
If you are using haloscan, please understand that I will have to leave my trackback in your comments section. For some reason, haloscan has not been available to me for 3 days now. It does not appear as though the problem will be solved soon, either. I am so p***ed off! (lol) Please leave your comment section open. Thank you.

UPDATE: Haloscan is back online. Wheh!

Naughty, Naughty Flintstones!

I love this little video, and hope you will too. It is an evil, gross, global warming enemy, and children attacking video. If you do NOT want your children to see this, ask them to leave the room, please. While this may be a funny video for those of us who are tired of being told how to live our lives, I just wanted to give you fair warning. Have a great weekend.

    Today I am just going to post some of the articles I have already written, because I do not think I shall be posting anymore about the NIE. That is, of course, unless something is said about it that is wrong, Wrong, WRONG! Here we go:

  • Iran’s no problem, they’ve only be at war with us for 28 years (1st).
  • Is DNI trying to sabotage intelligence? (2nd)
  • More info on the NIE (3rd).
  • Tikrit Law School affiliates with Baltimore Law School.
  • Chaotic Confidence.
  • Flag-raising Marks Culmination of Airman’s Dream.
  • Obstacle clearing teams keep Anbar roadways safe.
  • Air Force firefighters teach Iraqis blaze fighting basics.
  • Army Mechanics Go Distance to Keep Wheels Rolling.
  • Paratroopers from Five Nations Jump in ‘Bright Star’.
  • From the list of my last 10 posts, I imagine you can understand why I hate to be distracted by beauratic idiots. IMHO.

    I STRONGLY RECOMMEND Debbie’s interview with a man who served at Pearl Harbor in the 1980’s. To all of our men, women and children who have endured this unbearable era of our history, thank you for not being so selfish so that we did not lose our nation. You did well, and I thank you all for each sacrifice. God bless you.

    Michelle Malkin also has a great passage for today’s 66th Year Remembrance of that day of Infamy. HAT/TIP: Steve who is a commenter at Right Truth.

    I hope you enjoy them. This is my regularly scheduled day for the Open Trackback Alliance. It is run by Samantha Burns, and I would like anyone who is interested in joining to just click on the symbol below for more information.

    CentCom Round-up and other news

    There are some articles which seem to miss the newspapers and dead news for which I deem important, therefore I will be sharing them with you. Our Military is doing one heck of a job, and they deserve any and all recognition we can offer them. Please write some at your own site. You don’t have to be in the Military to write about it. Just ask the NY Times! /sarcasm

    RCT-2 takes to the skies to cover AO.

    In a 30,000 square mile patch of desert, roughly the size of South Carolina, it isn’t easy to have eyes and ears everywhere. Regimental Combat Team 2, the unit in control of the northwestern piece of Iraq’s Al Anbar Province, has taken an elevated approach to the problem, and regularly fields an Aero Scout group to the far corners, cliffs and caves of the western Euphrates River valley. [Continue reading.]

    This next article from CentCom is pretty riveting. Four men against over thirty trucks with heavy weapons, they are successful. It is an amazing story. I can only imagine it is one of many just like his.

    Unfortunately, I’m afraid I am falling asleep. Therefore I shall add some news articles when I wake up. The link to this previous article is Pilots’ valor honored for thwarting ambush. It is fascinating, and I wish there were more like these out there.

    Update: The Army/Navy game is on, so the other news will posted on my next article. Now it’s back to the Army-3; Navy-38 game. GO NAVY!

    Update 2: The final score is in, 3-38, but it is not reflective of the great game the Army played. They had some very unfortunate things happen. Two fumbles, one at the ten yard line which we scored a touchdown, and the other was on the one yard line. You held our defense pretty well and our offense. I think you just gave up in the fourth quarter when the score was 3-24. (This was also the score at halftime.) It was a great game, and everyone should be proud the teams. Godspeed.

    Please pray for The Florida Masochist

    The Florida Masochist has fallen off the face of the blogosphere, and I am worried about him. He is a good friend and a great writer. I know he wasn’t feeling well, so I am asking you to pray for his health and healing. I want him back here. Thank you.

    I cannot write too much when I am worried, so I will just allow others to speak for me in this open trackback alliance and Linkfest. Thank you.

    Update: HE’S BACK! Thank you for all of your prayers. Have a wonderful day. 😉

    Blackfive has a great link to Greyhawk who hits the nail on its head about Iraq. He sets the record straight between the reality of on-the-ground circumstances in Iraq vs. dinosaur media defeatism. Hey, he’s been there and done that, have you? An absolutely must read.

    I just have to add this article that I just read to this post. For those of you who actually read what I write, lol, this has the potential to be outstanding:

    Colorado Supreme Court Approves Ballot Language for Abortion Amendment.

    by Steven Ertelt
    LifeNews.com Editor
    November 14, 2007
    .

    Denver, CO (LifeNews.com) — The Colorado Supreme Court has affirmed the ballot language a group wants to place on the 2008 ballot that would restore personhood to human beings from the moment of conception. The measure has already sparked a heated debate over abortion as abortion advocacy groups have filed suit to prevent a vote. [Continue reading.]

    Everyone should at least admit that the discussion should move forward. Why are people in groups like NARAL so afraid? All you have to do is understand that they came into existence to get rid of our black brothers and sisters. Yup.

    Here is an article to prove to you that the first article, written by Greyhawk, is true. This verifies what we’ve all known about those who begin a sentence with, “We support the troops, but…”

    Boy Scouts Accused of Being Too Pro-War.

    In a nutshell, a troop of Boy Scouts tried to raise money for the the U.S. troops. Some moonbat cried that the message was too pro-war and so the city removed the donation boxes. Talk about appeasing the appeasers. Outrageous! [Continue reading.]

    If you read this, you will understand why I have not a word to add. At least not one that would make it more clear as to my anger at these beaurocrats…

    Most Reverend Shlemon Warduni, Auxiliary Bishop of the St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Diocese for Chaldeans and Assyrians in Iraq officiated standing directly beneath the dome under the Chaldean cross. Speaking in both Arabic and English, Bishop Warduni thanked those American soldiers sitting in the pews for their sacrifices. Again and again, throughout the service, he thanked the Americans.

    Update: I just have to share this with you. Michael Yon is a citizen journalist in Iraq, and he recently wrote an article about Christians and Muslims placing the Cross on top of St. John’s Church. Today he writes about the phenominon of Muslims and Christians worshipping together so that these Muslims may make a plea to their Christians neighbors and friends: Please come home. This caption belongs with this picture.

    Today, Muslims mostly filled the front pews of St John’s. Muslims who want their Christian friends and neighbors to come home. The Christians who might see these photos likely will recognize their friends here. The Muslims in this neighborhood worry that other people will take the homes of their Christian neighbors, and that the Christians will never come back. And so they came to St John’s today in force, and they showed their faces, and they said, “Come back to Iraq. Come home.” They wanted the cameras to catch it. They wanted to spread the word: Come home. Muslims keep telling me to get it on the news. “Tell the Christians to come home to their country Iraq.”

    This is open trackback Friday for Linkfest and the Open Trackback Alliance by Samantha Burns. Please remember to link back to this post if you wish to participate in the open trackbacks. Also, I will use my right to pull your post if it is pornography. Fortunately, I have been introduced to a great group of people who also agree with me on this area, so I haven’t had any problems. Thank you, LORD. Yes, I can invoke the name of the one and only true God, so there!

    Thank you for this beautiful day.
    Thank you for the days that are far too glum.
    Thank you for the days I smiled.
    But most of all, thank you for my freedom.

    Thank you for the roof over my head.
    Thank you for my comfortable bed.
    Thank you for my running water.
    But most of all, let us never forget our dead.

    Thank you for the fresh air I breathe.
    The breath of freedom, I do concede.
    Thank you for all your sacrifices.
    Just so this stranger may live free.

    Thank you for your love of country.
    Thank you for the love you share amongst your brothers.
    Thank you, families left behind, for enduring the long, lonely nights.
    Thank you for fighting for the freedom of others.

    Thank you to those who are far from home this day.
    I cannot imagine your struggles.
    Have faith, my dear friends, hang on.
    The day shall come when you receive all your huggles.
    (New word.)

    You are so special to me, as you may tell.
    I cannot find the words of gratitude you are due.
    My hope on this day is that ya’ll will know,
    Yesterday, today and tomorrow I will owe a debt to you.

    Not a debt of money, for that would tarnish your honor,
    Not a debt of worldly words, for those you’ve heard before.
    Yet I do believe that if it were not for you,
    America would exist no more…

    Dear Morgan, thank you. It is not my best poem, but it is for you and all the others. Keep the faith, my dear friend. We do appreciate you so very deeply. Our prayers are with you, and ‘O’ and Maniac. Also your teams. Take care on this and every day. God bless you, and God bless America. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

    Outraged

    That is the only word I could think to use to describe my feelings about the news I read at Blackfive’s site this morning. On Veterans’ Day no less. We all must come together to help this man, Lt Col Chessani, fight the Left bastards who are trying to ruin him. He is the father of five children, with one on the way, and he may lose his pension for a crime that NEVER happened. Thanks a lot Murtha…you scumbag.

    Just a little background:

    • Two separate investigations by U.S. Army officers, a colonel and a general, found no evidence either of a “massacre” or a “cover-up.”
    • Chessani traveled to the site of the “massacre” to investigate and reported to every echelon of his chain of command what he did not find there.
    • An Article 32 Investigation also found no evidence of a “massacre” or a “cover-up.

    Please read this article. Donate if you can. You can skip a cup of coffee, can’t you? You say you support the troops, okay. Here’s your opportunity to prove it. Help this patriot.

    He is on trial because they found everyone else innocent. HUH?

    This is Veterans’ Day weekend, and I have an e-mail I would like share with you. They, better than I, can voice what and how I feel about this precious and solemn day.

    HONORING AMERICA’S VETERANS

    .
    This week, Americans across this great country will join together to honor our military veterans. From the blood-soaked beaches of France to the bombed-out back-alleys of Fallujah, the American G.I. has fought-and died-opposing that which is evil and oppressive, and defending all things good and free.

    Veterans Day is about one thing: honoring the service and sacrifice of America’s veterans, and passing their collective story to the next generation. These stories, and the men and women who bear them, are the backbone of this American experiment and must never be forgotten.

    As John Stuart Mill once said, “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing [is] worth a war, is worse.” The second we believe our freedoms inevitable, we cease to live in history and sour the soldier’s sacrifice. Our freedoms – purchased on the battlefield – are indeed “worthy of war.”

    And today, with America still at war, it is fitting that we remember the troops currently serving in harms way. Because, as any veteran can attest, just one moment, one explosion, or one bullet separates Memorial Day from Veterans Day. Soldiers currently in Iraq and Afghanistan are fighting for our freedoms today, knowing it’s possible they may never see tomorrow.

    Vets for Freedom beseeches our membership to honor America’s veterans this week. Whether at a ceremony, in a letter to the editor, or with a simple “thank you,” find a way to ensure that every veteran – young and old – feels appreciated.

    Please visit Vets for Freedom’s website to keep up with news on WWIV. This is a great group who keeps up with the news we never seem to have access to for some reason. Interesting…

    I would also like to throw into this special weekend a great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARINES! (11/09/07) Time got away from me, but that is no excuse to not say how much I appreciate you. Yes, the Navy sure did make you good. LOL. (No, I won’t take that back, so don’t bother asking.)

    Today is the first time I am going to be doing a double open trackback, Linkfest and Open Trackback Alliance. If you would like to participate, please leave a trackback and a link to this post on your site. Oh, and no porn! 😉
