"Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian?"- Walid Shoebat, former Jiahdist and admitted terrorist.

There never was a Palestinian State, a Palestinian culture, a Palestinian history, Palestinian currency, Palestinian architecture, or Palestinian archeology. There WAS a Jewish commonweal on the land known as the West Bank and part of Syria and Iraq 1500 years before the birth of Jesus. Jesus never heard of Palestinian Arabs. Nowhere are Palestinian Arabs mentioned in the Bible. Nor did his disciples ever hear of a Palestinian culture.

The reason is that the Palestinian "identity" and recent history is all fabrication. It is a political creation not to accept the League of Nations' international division of the Ottoman Empire which gave 80% of the former Palestine Territories to create the State Jordan to Palestinian Arabs...and incorporated the rest, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, etc.

The Palestinian issue is a political device not to accept any other but a Muslim State in the mid east, and to take -- steal -- the remaining 20% of the land that was throughout history, Jewish. Jewish before the birth of Islam itself. I speak of Israel. Put another way, the Arabs want not one, but two Palestinian States, since they already had one, 80% of the former Palestinian Territories, since before World War II !

In other words, today Arabs can live wherever they choose to in the mid east; but Jews and Christians cannot. 300,000 Arabs left Israel during the Arab-Israeli wars. 800,000 Jews were kicked out of Arab lands during the same period and all their property taken. No one talks about the second.

The Jews were resettled by Israel within Israel. These Jews have been completely integrated into Israeli society. The so-called Palestinian Arabs were forced into refugee camps by the Arab rulers of the surrounding nations so they can continue to be political pawns for over 60 years and be used specifically for political purposes to destroy the only historical, democratic, free and legitimate state in the region: Israel.

What you've read so far in the media are lies. What you read above is the accurate historical truth.

Obama's Church Sale

By Tony Vega

What’s for sale? Let’s start with dignity wrapped in false pride, followed by grace, honor, loyalty, and patriotism. Stick around folks, the give-a-ways may include salvation, souls, and perhaps one presidential candidacy of a 20-year congregant of Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC).

Many of us have seen, ad nauseam, videos of the Reverend Dr. Wright’s ranting. I will spare you a re-play and embed videos that you can activate at your convenience. To view the hateful, unholy, and anti-American drivel activate the videos:
Part 1

Part 2

ABC News reported that Obama’s church was selling DVDs of Pastor Wright’s sermons. The folks can buy these DVDs featuring the now retired pastor and keep them for posterity and/or inspiration. I shudder at the thought of inspiring young minds with such hateful rhetoric. Under ordinary circumstances, this news story wouldn’t be a news story but this is not ordinary circumstances. What makes this extraordinary is not hateful oratory from a black preacher man, however shameful. No, this is extraordinary and important because it gives us additional clues into who Barack Obama is. It serves as an indicator of Obama’s judgment and character, attributes that should be very important to the American voter.

Barack Obama gave a very eloquent speech. I stop short at courageous as many pundits have described it. There was nothing courageous about it. It was merely political expedience delivered by a gifted and talented lecturer.

Barack Obama took nearly a week to respond to his advisors hate speech, there is nothing courageous about that. Especially from a man that quickly demanded the firing of Don Imus for spewing racist shocking words to a predominately adult audience and while in the capacity of a Shock Jock. Obama was concerned about the impact a shock jock may have on his two daughters, and further claimed "I understand MSNBC has suspended Mr. Imus," Obama told ABC News, "but I would also say that there's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude."[1]

Let’s directly address Obama for a minute: After Jeremiah Wright’s hate speech you hired him to work as a member of your staff. How can you worry about Don Imus’ impact on your daughters’ self-esteem, and yet allow them to be indoctrinated by hate and bigotry? Let’s not forget the preacher man gyrating moves simulating a sex act while in the pulpit, no less. Let’s not forget the blasphemy by the preacher man by crying for God to damn America. What kind of impact do those events have on the children of TUCC? How can you, during an eloquent speech that took a week to prepare, throw your daughters great-grandmother under the bus and imply to the world that their great-grandmother was a racist? That my naïve friend is more damaging to your girls’ esteem than Don Imus’ shocking performance while employed as a shock jock.

Please folks don’t equate eloquent speech with meritorious intent. Barack Obama failed to deliver hope, promise, or change. Instead, he is selling the same old con that we are accustomed to witnessing by the likes of race arsonists. The difference is we aren’t used to seeing it delivered from such a gifted and talented orator. If you buy into the notion that Obama wasn’t aware of his advisors beliefs, what does that say about the judgment of this presidential candidate? After 20-years, he wasn’t aware of the landscape of TUCC. If you wish to buy that, then you must at least admit Obama is extremely naïve. The alternative is Obama was indeed fine with Wright’s positions and theology. Either scenario isn’t representative of an individual ready for the presidency.

While Obama was equating his grandmother to his hateful reverend, he failed to mention to you that Jesse Jackson mirrored his grandmother’s fears [2]. What Obama failed to focus on during his race speech was a realistic path to adequate change and an honest examination of the problems plaguing the black community. While Obama denounced Wright’s incendiary remarks, he attempted to justify them by acknowledging the race issues past and present of this currently great nation. The context of explaining the hate speech of his advisor in a conciliatory tone suggests white racism and/or America is the prevalent problem. This is what race arsonists, such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, make a living on. This advancement will continue to perpetuate the racial divide, not unite all of America.

Note the wisdom of the prominent Dr. Walter Williams, a black American writing from that viewpoint; “At one time black Americans did not have the constitutional guarantees enjoyed by white Americans; now we do. The fact that the civil rights struggle is over and won does not mean that there are not major problems confronting many members of the black community but they are not civil rights problems and have little or nothing to do with racial discrimination.

While not every single vestige of racial discrimination has disappeared, Obama and the Rev. Wright are absolutely wrong in suggesting that racial discrimination is anywhere near the major problem confronting a large segment of the black community. The major problems are family breakdown, illegitimacy, fraudulent education and a high rate of criminality, NOT white racism. To confront these problems, that are not the fault of the larger society, requires political courage and that's an attribute that Obama and most other politicians lack."[3]

Barack Obama is selling the same old crippling notions as Jeremiah Wright, just not in the same firebrand manner. Louis Farrakhan, a friend of Wright and recipient of a life time achievement award from Obama‘s church, noted that Obama has been “groomed wisely”

The story of Obama’s church honoring the Nation of Islam Leader first broke January 08 and published on AC, that story can be found here: Obama’s Church Honors Farrakhan.

During the same 2007 award ceremony honoring Farrakhan, Obama’s Church also honored America’s first “Hip-Hop Mayor” Kwame Kilpatrick recognizing him as a social giant. The moniker “Hip-Hop Mayor” was first dubbed by Russell Simmons and was used to describe Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. [4]

You can still be objective enough to reject the “guilt by association” designation and still detect a foul odor. Just because you hang out with trash doesn’t make you garbage, but after awhile you will start to stink. Obama are you listening?

It is also notable that Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan were companions during a 1984 trip to visit Muammar Qaddafi in Libya. It was shortly after this trip that Barack Obama embraced the Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright and his teachings of Black Liberation Theology.

While we are deciding to buy the notion that Obama was conveniently absent during the Rev’s hate preach, let’s learn about the teachings that the illustrious presidential candidate has in fact embraced and found worthy to baptize his family in.

The Reverend Jeremiah Wright in attempts to educate those not familiar with his teachings or theology has scolded and invited us to read and learn about James Cone [5], the architect of Obama‘s religion and the Black Value System.

James Hal Cone, the father of Black Liberation Theology has been criticized for his many controversial beliefs. This pearl of wisdom by Mr. Cone was discovered:

“Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community. Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.”[6]

Commenting on Obama's presidential candidacy, Cone traced a direct line from Martin Luther King Jr. (through Wright) to Barack Obama: in 1964, King significantly referenced audacity and hope. Cone told Newsweek that in Obama's rhetoric "the fierce urgency of now comes from his church."[6]

Is there anything authentic about Barack Obama? How many instances of plagiarism are we to accept before we admit that Obama may not be the man of integrity that his supporters seem to so desperately desire? How many instances of hateful and subversive ties do we have to discover before we admit the he is not the one?

To accept Obama’s assertion that he wasn’t aware of Wright’s hateful positions will require a “willing suspension of disbelief.” That’s an old line made famous by Hillary Clinton. If you are still willing to buy at Obama’s Church Sale, I have another old and memorable proposition for you; there is a wonderful bridge in Brooklyn for sale.

Pentagon Hit By Missile....

The 9-11 conspiracy theorists remind us that there was nothing left of the plane that hit the granite walls of the Pentagon. Of course, this assertion is not true. Engines were recovered from the lawn that were sheared off by lamp posts and some fuselage parts and wheels were found -- and photographed. But most of the plane disintegrated.

Note that granite is FAR harder than concrete. In other words, FAR stronger.

But the jetliner was also far larger than the fighter jet used in this experiment, much heavier, and carried a lot of jet fuel.

In any event, if one denies what happens when a 500 MPH jet hits an immovable barrier, here he can see for himself.

Conspiracy theorists: You've got it wrong, once again. The 9-11 Pentagon attack culminated more or less exactly how you see it here and how the 9-11 Commission described it. -- AGB

It's an Air Force engineering test of a concrete barrier that was to surround a nuclear reactor dome, to see if it would indeed survive an aerial attack. With the high speed cameras rolling, they attached an F-4 Phantom to the sled and then pumped up the speed to 500 MPH. And... "What happens when an 'Unstoppable Force' meets an 'Immovable Object'?" Watch in slow motion as the F-4 turns to vapor. You'll play it more than once just to believe it.

Easter Symbols

March 23, 2008

Western Christianity observes Easter on the first Sunday following the Paschal Full Moon, this is the first full moon of spring. Today, March 23, 2008 Easter Sunday arrived. The last time Easter was this early it was 1913. Easter won’t arrive this early again for another 152 years, in the year 2160. May we spend it together.

There are a number of symbols related to Easter or the Resurrection, such as the Butterfly, the Lily, the Peacock, the Phoenix, and the Pomegranate.

The butterfly represents the Resurrection and eternal life. It emerges from its cocoon or chrysalis and gloriously rises into the sky in its splendid new body. Similarly, Jesus and his followers are born into a new life on Easter.

The lily is commonly displayed during Easter worship services and blooms during this time of year. The lily’s bulb decays in the earth, yet new life sprouts from it in the form of the flower, reminiscent of the new life that emerged from the tomb so many years ago.

The peacock sheds his feathers annually. Each year the feathers grow back more beautiful and more brilliant in color. This renewal symbolizes eternal life or resurrection. There also exists a myth that the peacock’s flesh doesn’t decay after death, representing immortality.

The phoenix was a mythical bird that lived in the Arabian Desert for five hundred years. It set its nest on fire and perished in the flames. On the third day, it rose from its own ashes and ascended into the sky as a new and beautiful creature. It is easy to see the symbolism of Resurrection and immortality.

The pomegranate symbolizes the power of Christ and His Resurrection because of the many seeds that comes forth from the fruit. The seeds represent the many believers who follow Christ and the fertility of the Word.

In closing, I wish to share with you a popular reminder found across the internet: Only two defining forces have died for you.

1. Jesus Christ.

2. The American Soldier.

One died for your soul, the other died for your freedom.

On behalf of my family to yours, we wish you a Happy, Healthy, and Blessed Easter.

From Lew Rockwell's UFO

It can be observed that Lew Rockwell's website appeals to both the extreme right and reactionary left of the political divide. However, it also appears that Lew Rockwell may be a Quaker or a Mennonite. Does that fact mean anything?

It means that the kind of cynical people to whom you have been listening, Pat Buchanan, Jeff Rense, Justin Raimondo's, and presidential candidate Ron Paul, for example, use Rockwell's factoids and fabrications for their own political and religious agenda.

NOTHING Rockwell has ever PUBLISHED on the subject of the War in Iraq and Bush and the neo-cons and 9-11 and the Middle East and terrorism and Economics has any credibility given his agenda and the context of measurable truth.

Rockwell's aggressive blathering is underscored by a particularly offensive agenda and devolves to meaningless assertions colored by his religious commandments. Moreover, Rockwell and his cohorts and associates, some named above, include David Duke & Company, many are border racists and anti-Semites. No one's perfect I guess. A such, their opinions are colored by their deep-seated racial ideology.

Pacifism -- which they couch in semantics such as, "The Doctrine of Restraint" to make it sound political, rather than religious is, among Quakers and Mennonites, NON-NEGOTIABLE. In other words, these partisans will employ linguistic mechanism, smoke and mirrors, to disguise their true agenda. Within libertarianism you will find pacifists who will make bedfellows with people whom they would otherwise not associate with. Reactionary progressives for example. They erroneously believe they are morally superior because all conflicts can be pragmatically resolved with non-violence. Of course history teaches us otherwise: Hitler, Tojo, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, the latter ones deposed within their cultures or simply passed away. Most historical pacifism is utter fiction; their believers usually wiped out by invaders who had other ideas.

Rockwell's views are ENTIRELY skewed by RELIGIOUS dogma that would have you believe that Christianity too, is pacifist to the core, to the point where even self defense is discouraged. This belief is entirely unexamined withing a historical context, and lacks religious scholarship covering post 4th Century Christians who had no problem dying for G-d and were enthusiastically ready to fight those who threatened their existence and culture.

Luke 22:36: "He said to them, 'But now, the one who has a purse must take it, and likewise a bag. And the one who has no sword must sell his cloak and buy one.'"

Quaker and Mennonite religious teaching and belief systems, among others, are useful -- to their faithful. Accordingly, everything Rockwell has weaved into his publication is DOGMA disguised as something else. As something purportedly "objective" that can be tested by inquiry. He know that most people are intellectually lazy and won't bother.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke. "Jan Naverson argued that pacifism is a self-contradictory doctrine; in that everyone has rights and corresponding responsibilities not to violate others' rights. Since pacifists give up their ability to protect themselves from violation of their right not to be harmed, then other people thus have no corresponding responsibility, creating a paradox of rights. As Narveson puts it, "the prevention of infractions of that right is precisely what one has a right to when one has a right at all." - Wickipedia

If you don't belong to religious-inspired pacifist thought, or secular ones actually inspired by religious thinking (liberalism, Ethical Culture -- both religions), the next time someone sends you a Rockwell column suggesting it an authoritative source, raise questions and take it down with a large grain of salt.

Here Lew is pushing the intellectual drivel from that fruitcake space alien Ron Paul:

Ramos and Compean: 100th Day Since Appeal

March 13, 2008 is the 100th day since the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans heard the Ramos and Compean case.

Many hoped that former agents Ramos and Compean would have been returned home for Christmas. Sadly, this is not the situation.

At the beginning of the appeal, encouraging news came in the form of Judge E. Grady Jolly’s comments stating that federal prosecutors "may have overreacted in their case against" Ramos and Compean. Jolly questioned Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Steimach saying, "It does seem to me that the government overreacted here."

Steve Elliott, President of Alliance reports that Nacho Ramos and Jose Compean remain in solitary confinement while their families continue wrestling with mounting emotional and financial burdens.

This adds to the travesty of justice perpetrated by Western Texas U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton and his questionable prosecution.

It was always clear that the agents were in need of a presidential pardon by George W. Bush. It is obvious a pardon is not forthcoming, as the president remains loyal to his friend Johnny Sutton. Supporters of the agents remain hopeful of a positive ruling from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

I have chronicled the events leading up to this 100th day, including the end of year presidential pardons that did not include Ramos and Compean. Links to those articles are included for your perusal.

1. U.S. Border Agents Ramos and Compean

2. Agents Appeal is Heard

3. President Bush Pardons

4. One Year in Purgatory

It is notable that during such dark times for the Ramos and Compean families, there remains strong grass roots and bipartisan support for the agents. The consistent champions of this cause are Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Steve Elliott.

Steve Elliott the president of Grassfire Alliance has established a means to aid both families. I have included that link here:

As the wheels of justice continue to grind at a snails pace it is difficult to predict if the original miscarriage will be righted. Until then I will continue to support and pray for their relief and that many will join in the efforts to ease the pain of the Ramos and Compean families.

I will furnish the means to forward any personal messages of encouragement to the agents upon request.

Enough Already

Please folks take a look at these images, read the story...and then get your sons haircuts.

Two Suspects Charged in UNC Killing - AOL News

While our enemies across the globe are teaching their sons how to kill us...

We are teaching our sons what ear to put his earring in & if we are not sure..what the hell wear 'em in both ears.

While our enemies are teaching their sons respect and proficiency in be used against us..

We are allowing our boys to carry "gats" out of holsters and use them to steal from & kill fellow Americans.

While our enemies are teaching their sons self discipline.

We are teaching our boys how to braid their hair!

I'm not suggesting we raise our sons in an al-Qaeda like training camp.

I'm suggesting we raise our sons to grow up to be MEN. Men willing to have self discipline, men willing to have the courage and fortitude to refrain from selling narcotics on street corners or killing fellow Americans for their selfish pursuits. And to raise our sons to be man enough to reject vile acts that destroys families and communities.

When we have American men with such attributes, our enemies won’t have a chance to deny us our basic Human rights of Life and Freedom.

The USS New York

On Saturday, March 01, 2008 the USS New York was christened at Avondale Shipyards in New Orleans, La. The United States Ship New York (LPD-21) is the Navy’s newest amphibious transport dock ship. It is named in commemoration of those tragically affected by 9/11. Her Commanding Officer will be a native of New York City, Commander F. Curtis Jones.
Twenty-four tons of steel used in its construction came from the small amount of rubble from the World Trade Center (WTC) actually preserved for posterity. The bow stem was formed using 7.5 tons of steel from the WTC. The shipyard workers reportedly treated it with "reverence usually accorded to religious relics,” gently touching it as they walked by.

Shortly after September 11, 2001, Then Governor of New York George E. Pataki wrote a letter to the Secretary of the Navy Gordon England requesting that the Navy bestow the name USS New York on a surface warship involved in the War on Terror in honor of September 11's victims. In his letter, the Governor said he understood state names are currently reserved for submarines, but asked for special consideration so the name could be given to a surface ship. The request was approved August 28, 2002.

The bow stem is the foremost portion of the ship where it cuts through the water and offers hull integrity. "The significance of where the WTC steel is located on the 684-ft-long ship symbolizes the strength and resiliency of the citizens of New York as it sails forward around the world," said Cmdr. Quentin King, Navy program manager representative on site. "It sends a message of America becoming stronger as a result, coming together as a country and ready to move forward as we make our way through the world."

This fitting tribute by the US Navy continues to show true American grit. The ship’s motto: “Never Forget, Strength Through Sacrifice" should serve as a reminder to all Americans of the sacrifice so many has made and continues to make for our Freedom. Thank you to the US Navy and to all our brave men and women in uniform. We are truly the land of the free because we are home of the brave.
Never Forget!
