2007: A Great Year in Iraq

Al-Qaeda out, troop deaths down as "Surge" works

The Iraqi interior ministry lauded its achievements over the past year on Saturday, saying that 75 percent of Al-Qaeda's networks in the country had been destroyed in 12 months.

Ministry spokesman Abdul Karim Khalaf also outlined sharp falls in the numbers of assassinations, kidnappings and death squad murders.

He told a news conference that increased patrols along the borders with Saudi Arabia and Syria had slowed infiltration by militants and played a key role in Iraq's improved security situation.

"We have destroyed 75 percent of Al-Qaeda hide-outs, and we broke up major criminal networks that supported Al-Qaeda in Baghdad," he said.

"After eliminating safe houses in Anbar province, which used to be Al-Qaeda's base, we moved into areas surrounding Baghdad and into Diyala province. Al-Qaeda headed north and we are pursuing them," he said.

Khalaf said kidnappings were down 70 percent and that an average of three to five people killed by death squads were being found each day in Baghdad compared with 15 to 20 a day in February.

Personnel with militant or criminal links had been weeded out from Iraqi security forces, he said, adding that Sunni-US alliances against Al-Qaeda had also significantly contributed to the drop in violence.

The dropping death toll of American soldiers also gives proof that the surge started in the summer of 2007 has worked spectacularly.

According to icasualty.org there were 14 American soldiers killed in hostile action in Iraq, down from 120 earlier in March of 2007.

“Every trend we watch is down roughly about 60 percent: civilian deaths, numbers of attacks, and thankfully our casualties are down as well,” Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander of Multinational Force Iraq, said on “Fox News Sunday.” “As we go into the new year, we clearly want to build on the momentum that has been achieved by our forces working closely together with Iraqi forces.”

Petraeus said Iraqi forces also had a surge this year, with 110,000 new Iraqi soldiers and police.

Petraeus appeared on the morning news program to discuss the release of this week’s quarterly report, “Measuring Stability and Security in Iraq.” With the success of the surges comes the question of reducing the number of U.S. forces in Iraq while maintaining the positive trends, he said.

“We want to reduce the strain on our ground forces as much as we can while recognizing that what has been achieved here remains tenuous and is still fragile in a number of areas,” the general said. “We have laid out a plan that will take us through the end of July, and it will result in the reduction without replacement of about one-quarter of our combat forces.”

Petraeus was cautious about committing to further troop reductions and reiterated that al Qaeda remains a significant threat. “Al Qaeda remains a very dangerous and very lethal organization, and it is one that will continually try to reconstitute and one that we must pursue tenaciously and relentlessly, and that is what we and our Iraqi partners are doing,” Petraeus said.

Huckabee Rally in Orlando

Republican presidential front-runner Mike Huckabee was in Orlando December 27 at a rally attended by about 200 supporters from central Florida.

One of the highlights of the rally happened before Huckabee's arrival, when Florida state senator Dick Langley, a campaign chairman for Mitt Romney in Lake County, tore off his Romney lapel sticker and replaced it with a Huckabee sticker.

"I wanted a candidate who stood where I stood on the issues," Langley said later. "And I couldn't figure out where Mitt stood."

There was also a pre-event skirmish when a hoard of Ron Paul supporters tried to crash the Huckabee rally. After a confrontation between Huckabee supporters and the Paul supporters, airport security ran off the party crashers and peace and harmony was restored.

Huckabee and his wife Janet arrived later to an energetic crowd and Van Halen's "Right Now" blaring from some speakers. He spoke for about 20 minutes, took some questions from the press, and then hung out for several minutes before leaving on his jet to Destin, FL.

Bhutto Dies, Pakistan in Uproar

Photos from AP

It may be shocking, but take a good look at the photo to the the left.

This is what Islam, the "Religion of Peace", looks like.

The suicide bomber who caused this damage killed Pakistan's opposition leader Benazir Bhutto (also pictured to the left) and around 20 others.

Now the already turbulent situation in Pakistan is quickly worsening and threatening the promised January elections.

Add to this situation that Pakistan has nuclear weapons that could fall into terrorist hands if a full-scale breakdown of law and order occurs and you have a recipe for a disaster of international scale.

What's happening in Pakistan should remind everyone of why Islamic countries should not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons.

Stopping Iran and Syria from developing nuclear weapons has to be a top priority of the United States and the rest of the free world, even if it means keeping the option of using military force on the table.

The free world depends on a large part on nuclear-free Islamic countries.

Christmas Eve... The Story of Christ's Birth

Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth.

This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria.

And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city.

Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David,in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child.

While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth.

And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night.

And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened.

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men
with whom He is pleased."

When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, "Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us."

So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger.

When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child.

And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds.

But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart.

The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.

from the Gospel of Luke 2:1-20 (NASB)

Global Warming "Consensus" Debunked by U.S. Senate Report

read the full U.S. Senate report here

The U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works has released a startling study debunking the "consensus" doctrine that has gripped the global warming religion.

Hundreds of accredited scientists, many of whom were part of the U.N.'s IPCC report on global warming last year, have now officially become deniers of man-made global warming and are urging the governments of the world to spend their time and money on other more important issues.

Here's a few excerpts:

Dr. Nathan Paldor, Professor of Dynamical Meteorology and Physical Oceanography at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem: "First, temperature changes, as well as rates of temperature changes (both increase and decrease) of magnitudes similar to that reported by IPCC to have occurred since the Industrial revolution (about 0.8C in 150 years or even 0.4C in the last 35 years) have occurred in Earth's climatic history. There's nothing special about the recent rise!" Paldor told EPW on December 4, 2007. "Second, our ability to make realizable (or even sensible) future forecasts are greatly exaggerated relied upon by the IPCC."

Physicist Dr. Gerhard Gerlich, of the Institute of Mathematical Physics at the Technical University Carolo-Wilhelmina in Braunschweig in Germany, and Dr. Ralf D. Tscheuschner: "The horror visions of a risen sea level, melting pole caps and developing deserts in North America and in Europe are fictitious consequences of fictitious physical mechanisms as they cannot be seen even in the climate model computations. The emergence of hurricanes and tornados cannot be predicted by climate models, because all of these deviations are ruled out. The main strategy of modern CO2-greenhouse gas defenders seems to hide themselves behind more and more pseudo explanations, which are not part of the academic education or even of the physics training."

Dr. Boris Winterhalter, retired Senior Marine Researcher of the Geological Survey of Finland and former professor of marine geology at University of Helsinki: "To state that sea level rises or falls due to global change is completely out of proportion. There are far too many factors affecting this planet from the inside and the outside to warrant the idea that man is capable of influencing these natural processes..."

The U.S. Senate report is very lengthy and has links to all the research papers done by the 400+ scientists who have declared the man-made global warming crisis a myth, pure fiction, and falsification.

The global warming bubble is going to pop soon; let's hope it does before the liberals do serious damage to our economy, our country, and our way of life.

City Hall Christmas Display

more pictures from Holly Hill

The city of Holly Hill, FL is bucking the politically correct trend and still puts up a great Christmas display every year.

There have been protests from liberals and others in Holly Hill who do not understand the concept of religious freedom in our country and who mistakenly believe that the First Amendment somehow prohibits the display of Christian symbols on public property.

The nearby cities of Daytona Beach and Ormond Beach have given in to the politically correct crowd and now have "Holiday Parades" and "holiday decorations" throughout their towns. They snubbed their noses at the traditions and culture of America that are grounded in Christianity.

Thank God that there are still towns and cities like Holly Hill around to keep Christmas safe for another year!

More Alarmism: UN Warns of Food Shortages

The United Nations is at it again, this time warning of dangerous food shortages because of global warming and rising oil prices.

There is "a very serious risk that fewer people will be able to get food," particularly in the developing world, said Jacques Diouf, head of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.

The source article for this story cites all kinds of statistics to prove that we are in danger of a global disaster that will of course hit the poor nations the hardest.

Besides global warming and high oil prices, they blame the tightening food supply on the increasing number of "upwardly mobile meat-eaters" and the diversion of grains from the food supply into bio-fuel production, such as ethanol.

Over the years the UN and other liberal and Marxist groups have warned of global starvation and wars over food supplies in an effort to get the prosperous countries of the world to give money to poor countries.

What those poor countries need isn't food, it's freedom. The people need to be free to work, farm, start businesses, and trade their goods and services without the tyranny of high taxes and government interference.

But the poor countries are run by dictators, military thugs, and Marxists who only use their power to make themselves wealthy and are not accountable to the people they rule with an iron fist.

Because of their love for big government, the UN and other liberals try to address the symptoms of liberalism (poverty, racism, poor health, etc.) instead of the cause: big government, high taxes, lack of economic opportunity, and lack of personal freedom and liberty.

Climate Change Conference Ends; End of World Near

The UN conference on climate change, hosted in Bali, is thankfully over and the only accomplishment to speak of was the emitting of hundreds of thousands of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.

According to the AP story, there were no major agreements or breakthroughs, and the 200+ participants were bitterly divided and acrimonious. At one point, Dutch representative Yvo de Boer (a real Alan Alda type), pictured on the left, actually broke down in tears because of the bitter wrangling over minor details in reaching a consensus deal.

According to the AP: "The new deal does not commit countries to specific actions against global warming. It simply sets an agenda and schedule for negotiators to find ways to reduce pollution and help poor countries adapt to environmental changes by speeding up the transfer of technology and financial assistance."

The AP story tried to put their best spin on the overly-hyped climate change conference in it's lead paragraph: "World leaders overcame bitter divisions Saturday and agreed to reach a new deal on fighting global warming by 2009, turning a corner in mankind's race to stave off environmental disaster caused by rising temperatures."

So the basic consensus deal reached by these liberals, Marxists, dictators, and fascists is to keep negotiating until industrialized countries like the US, Japan, China, and Australia submit themselves to the "global warming" religion and give up the economic freedom that drives their prosperous countries.

Just like the internet bubble of the 90's, the global warming bubble is ready to burst and these goof balls are trying to get as much out of it for themselves as possible at the expense of the USA and other industrialized countries.

Do You Remember 9/11?


The attacks on our country on 9/11 seem like a long time ago, but it is still the pivotal point in modern American history.

Most young people may not remember the events of 9/11 very well, and many kids may have never seen actual footage of the attack on the World Trade Center.

The public education system and the liberals in America would rather that 9/11 be forgotten and minimized. They would like the next generation to think of 9/11 as an isolated incident- just 19 guys who got through airport security and hijacked four planes.

But the reality is that 9/11 was part of a global war on America and western culture by Islam that had started in the 1970's and was ignored by the world, even ignored by great conservative leaders like Reagan and Thatcher.

This war on America by Islamic fundamentalists is going to last for at least the next two generations, so we will keep reminding our citizens of how horrible a price we have paid and will have to pay again if we give up this fight!

Mother of Heisman Trophy Winner Refused Abortion Recommendation

original story source

University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow became the first sophomore in the history of the NCAA to win the coveted Heisman Trophy as the best football player in the nation.

However, Tebow's accomplishments may never have been supported had his mother followed a doctor's recommendation to have an abortion. With 29 passing touchdowns and 22 rushing touchdowns, Tebow displayed the kind of versatility that has become more valued at the quarterback position.

Pam Tebow and her husband were Christian missionaries in the Philippines in 1985 and they prayed for "Timmy" before she became pregnant.

Unfortunately, as the Gainesville Sun reports, Pam entered into a coma after she contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in a contaminated food or drink.

The treatment for the medical condition would require strong medications that doctors told Pam had caused irreversible damage to Tim -- so they advised her to have an abortion.

As the Sun reported, Pam Tebow refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted.

Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and, eventually, gave birth to a health baby boy in August 1987.

As she told the newspaper, Pam was not surprised that her son would be up for the Heisman despite no underclassman receiving the award since its inception in 1933.

"The combination of Timmy's God-given talent, hard work, character and leadership have made a mark on and off the football field," she said.

As prominent researcher Joel Brind writes in a new LifeNews.com editorial, doctors are frequently telling women they should consider abortions when confronted with various medical situations affecting their health.

Yet, as he notes, physicians can successfully treat both mother and child without suggesting that the baby be killed to spare a mother's life.

Because Tim Tebow was spared, he's wowed a nation by his athletic skill and, at his younger age, has an opportunity to become the second person to win two Heisman awards.

Muslim Girl Killed by Father for Not Wearing Head Scarf

A 16 year old Canadian girl, Aqsa Parvez, was strangled to death by her father Monday for not wearing the hijab, the traditional Islamic head scarf. To the left are pictured two Muslim girls wearing hijabs.

According to her friends, Aqsa was having trouble at home because she did not conform to the family's religious beliefs, which included wearing hijabs, which the Muslims consider a sign of modesty for women.

"She wanted to go different ways than her family wanted to go, and she wanted to make her own path, but he (her father) wouldn't let her," one of her classmates told public broadcaster CBC.

"She loved clothes," another of her friends, Dominiquia Holmes-Thompson, told the daily Toronto Star. "She just wanted to show her beauty ... She just wanted to dress like us, just like a normal person."

According to her friends, Aqsa had worn the hijab at school last year, but rebelled in recent months.

They said she would leave home wearing a hijab and loose-fitting clothes, but would take off her head scarf and change into tighter garments at school, then change back before going home at the end of the day.

Aqsa's father has been arrested for murder and her brother charged with obstruction of justice.

This is another example of the hatred of the Islamic religion for women and children.

Islamic fundamentalists have no respect for the life, rights, or dignity of women and children.

To the left is a picture of women being beaten in Iran for wearing western clothing.

Interestingly, you can clearly see that most men in these situations wear modern western clothing, such as the man in the lower right of the same picture.

Tribute to a Soldier: Sgt. Donnie Dixon

Our military is making incredible progress bringing security and democracy to the people of Iraq, but there is still a lot of work to be done and the danger to our troops is not over.

This article is about Staff Sgt. Donnie Dixon, one of our soldiers who died recently.

(To the left are three photos: Top photo- Sgt. Donnie Dixon pulls security while on patrol in Aug 14, 2007; Middle photo- Sgt. Donnie Dixon; Bottom photo- Unveiling of dedication sign to Sgt. Dixon in Baqouba, Iraq)

Soldiers from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, gathered in what was known as the "Grey Wolf" Square at Forward Operating Base Warhorse, outside of Baqouba, Iraq, for a dedication ceremony and renaming of the square to honor a fallen friend and Soldier, Staff Sgt. Donnie Dixon.

Dixon died of wounds received in combat Sept. 29, 2007. Those who proudly served with him during the brigade's deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom 06-08 gathered to render one last salute and unveil the dedication sign which bears Dixon's gleaming smile at the newly-named square, Nov. 22.

"Today we dedicated the Grey Wolf Square and renamed it to the Dixon Square after Staff Sgt. Donnie Dixon, for his contributions to the Army and to his service in Iraq," said friend and fellow Soldier, Staff Sgt. Mario Whitaker, non-commissioned officer in charge of the commander's Personal Security Detachment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division.

The Dixon Square is used by the Soldiers stationed at Warhorse as a hang-out spot - a place where they can call their families, get online or grab some well-deserved coffee or pizza. With new Soldiers coming and going from Warhorse everyday, Whitaker said he hopes those coming in will take notice of the efforts and achievements Dixon made for his unit, his country and his family.

"I hope that when the new Soldiers coming to Warhorse look at the sign of Staff Sgt. Dixon, they see that joyful smile on his face," Whitaker said. "He was always happy, no matter what the situation or circumstances were. Even though we are in Iraq, ducking bullets and dodging [improvised explosive devices], he always had that smile on his face.

"This dedication was very important because Staff Sgt. Dixon was a great guy, father, leader and friend," said Whitaker. "He sacrificed everything he was known for to come over here and try and make Iraq a better place.

"He never griped or complained about anything; he always accomplished every mission that was placed before him," he continued.

Coast Guard Announces Record Drug Seizures

The Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard announced today a record year for cocaine seizures with 355,755 pounds seized, worth more than $4.7 billion.

"From piracy to rum runners to illegal migrant smugglers, the Coast Guard has been continuously guarding our coasts and securing our borders since 1790," said Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Thad Allen. "Today, drug smugglers are resorting to riskier, more desperate tactics in an attempt to evade detection and interdiction at sea. More and more, we are seeing that they can run but cannot hide"

* In September, the Coast Guard and its partners interdicted a vessel loaded with 3,600 gallons of cocaine dissolved in diesel fuel, a technique used by smugglers to avoid detection. The liquid cocaine could be converted into 15,800 pounds of pure cocaine.
* In August, Coast Guard, Navy and Customs and Border Protection crews interdicted and boarded a self-propelled, semi-submersible vessel loaded with an estimated $352 million of cocaine.
* The Coast Guard made its largest maritime cocaine seizure when it intercepted the Panamanian vessel Gatun carrying more than 33,500 pounds of the narcotic -- or approximately 20 tons -- in March 2007.

"With successful maritime interdiction efforts, drug smugglers are forced to resort to more dangerous and expensive tactics," said Cmdr. Robert Watts, chief, Coast Guard drug and migrant interdiction. "The more we push them to adopt extreme measures, the more difficult we make it for them to succeed."

Another major trend has drug smugglers increasingly turning to Pacific routes to traffic cocaine, as effective and aggressive enforcement efforts have all but shut down major routes in the Caribbean.

In the face of new routes and new tactics by smugglers, partnerships are a critical component of the Coast Guard's interdiction successes. New tools are extending the Coast Guard's law enforcement authority to targets that were previously out of reach. Bilateral agreements negotiated with 26 Caribbean and South American nations allow the service to conduct operations and stop illegal smuggling far outside U. S. territorial waters with suspected smugglers operating on foreign-flag vessels. Dramatic improvements in intelligence and information sharing among international and interagency partners have also strengthened anti-smuggling efforts.

"On behalf of the President and the American people, I commend the Coast Guard and its interagency partners for a record-breaking rate of seizures on the high seas," said John Walters, Director of National Drug Control Policy. "Every load of drugs seized represents that much less that can be used to poison our young people and harm our nation. Thanks to the brave efforts of these men and women, the cocaine market in the United States has been significantly disrupted and lives are being saved as a result."

While the Coast Guard is the nation's leading maritime law enforcement agency, drug interdiction is an interagency effort. Through federal partnerships the Coast Guard is able to make significant gains in keeping illegal drugs out of our country and the profits out of the drug dealers' hands.

Remember Pearl Harbor Day

Detailed time line leading to Pearl Harbor

Photos from Pearl Harbor

Video: Pearl Harbor Survivors

Sixty-six years ago the Japanese navy struck the American Navy at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in a sneak attack that severely damaged America's naval power in the Pacific.

The Japanese attack started just before 8 AM, catching the Naval base off guard and virtually defenseless.

Within a short time five of eight battleships at Pearl Harbor were sunk or sinking, with the rest damaged. Several other ships and most Hawaii-based combat planes were also knocked out and over 2400 Americans were dead.

Soon after, Japanese planes eliminated much of the American air force in the Philippines, and a Japanese Army was ashore in Malaya.

On December 8, the USA declared war on Japan. Within days, the USA was a full participant in World War II.

How did the United States and it's Navy become such an easy target for a long-range naval attack?

Isolationism

One of the main reasons is that the driving philosophy in foreign relations at that time was isolationism.

The USA, still reeling from the Depression of the Thirties, felt that what was happening in Europe with Germany and Italy, and in the Pacific with Japan, was not it's concern.

Just as darkness cannot tolerate light, evil governments like Germany, Italy, and Japan could not let the USA, still a world power and bastion of liberty and freedom, remain as it was.

From Pearl Harbor, and later the attack 60 years later on 9/11 by Islamic fascists, we learn that the world is too small for us to tolerate evil.

The New Direction

We do not live in a bubble. The loss of freedom and respect for life anywhere in the world affects everyone and diminishes our humanity.

Our foreign policy today has to come from our respect for life and the extension of liberty and freedom to all.

Despite what the liberals say, we have the moral high ground, and an obligation to do what is necessary to spread freedom and liberty and stand up to the dark evil forces that are trying to destroy our way of life.

This means that we must win the current war on Islamic fascism that was brought to our shores even before 9/11. Unlike WWII, this is a war that will take decades to win.

Not fighting this war will result the spread of the hateful Islamic ideology throughout the world and the loss of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness that God has endowed on all his creation.

Just as it was at Pearl Harbor, the USA today is the last and greatest firewall in stopping the flames of evil that seek to destroy all that is good.

Record Snow in US While Bali Hosts Global Warming Conference

Portland, Maine tied a 1890 record for snow Monday, receiving 8.5 inches while Marshfield in Washington County had 18 inches of snow, Lakeville in Penobscot County 17 inches, Island Falls in Aroostook County 16, Brassau Lake near Moosehead 15.7, Farmington 14.7 inches and Andover 13, the weather service said.

Meanwhile, The National Weather Service says the Grand Forks airport had 8.1 inches of snow yesterday, setting a record for the date. And Fargo set a record with 5.9 inches.

The previous mark in both cities was set back in 1926.

Grand Forks and Fargo also had record snowfall last Saturday.

All this record snow is falling while the UN hosts a global warming in Bali, Indonesia.

The conference will primarily focus on the USA and China as the biggest global warming contributors. The international community, led by the UN, is trying to strong-arm the USA into signing treaties that will force our country into meeting deadlines for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Ironically, in order to put on the conference, thousands of people have had to take jets to the remote Bali location, which has added hundreds of thousands of tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.

Such treaties will only hurt our economy, weaken our world-power status, and will do nothing to reduce "global warming", which is a natural process that is not influenced by human activity.

Global Warming Activists Want $80 Billion

In its recent Human Development Report, the United Nations has suggested that industrialized countries should give poor countries $80 billion to help the poorer nations cope with global warming.

Of this $80 billion, they want the USA to pay about $40 billion.

Columnist Cliff Kincaid explains it this way: "In order to provide the “new and additional” foreign aid, the report calls for exploring a range of “innovative financing options.” This is U.N.-speak for global taxes. Indeed, the report openly calls for carbon taxes and aviation taxes. It proposes a “Climate Change Mitigation Facility” to mobilize the $25 - $50 billion “needed annually” for developing countries."

The true goal of the global warming activists is to promote one world government through the United Nations.

As I stated months ago on conservativekids.net: "Since global warming is a "global issue", it will take a "global government" to fix the problem."

If the next president of the United States is a liberal, they will undermine the sovereignty of our country by handing over more power to UN and it's Marxist agencies.

As a result, our citizens, military, and economy will all be under the control of the UN to some degree.

Of course, it is starting out with small steps, like the pressure to sign the Kyoto Protocol, the Law of the Sea Treaty, or giving the UN $40 billion for the poor nations affected by global warming.

But these small steps are designed to weaken our country and make it easier to bring the USA under the control of the UN.

The next president of the USA has to have the resolve to strengthen our country, not weaken it. The sovereignty of the United States of America is at stake in the next election.

Conservatives have to win this battle for president, not only for the sake of the USA, but for the ability of any country to maintain its sovereignty and identity.

Marines Bring School Supplies to Iraqi Kids

This is the kind of news you won't see on your TV or in your newspaper.

As the surge continues to provide better security in Iraq and daily life gets better, the Marines are building relationships with future generations of Iraqi's by supplying school kids with notebooks, pens, and even soccer balls.

The school supplies were donated by friends and families of the Marines, as well as church groups back home.

Capt. T.J. Owens, the commanding officer of Company I said: “When the kids see Americans doing good deeds like this, they grow up with that impression of Americans in their minds. The actions Marines take now have endearing implications for the future.”

He continued: "Some people are still recovering from the early portions of the war and what the terrorists did,” said Owens. “This can’t just be putting a band-aid on. What we’re doing is part of a campaign that coalition forces all over Iraq are taking part in.”

Boy Survives Deer Antler in Brain

5 year old Connor Schick survived a freak accident, when he fell on an antler he was carrying and it penetrated his eye socket and went into his brain.

Connor had found the antler in the wood while he and his family were on a camping trip.

While carrying the antler back to show his family, he tripped and it went through his eye socket and into the frontal lobe of his brain.

He pulled the antler out himself but his family didn't realize how severe his injury was. A couple days later, he developed a bad infection and was taken to the hospital.

The doctors gave Connor an MRI and discovered that the antler had penetrated his brain and caused a severe infection to develop.
To the left is an graphic depicting how the antler entered his brain.

They treated his infection with high doses of antibiotics and he fully recovered.

Amazingly, he had no permanent brain damage and can see fine through the injured eye.

Connor's mom, Melissa, said this about the incident: “It makes you appreciate your children even more,” she said. “You want to hug and hold them every day and kiss them, because in a second, it can change.”

You can read the full story and watch a video of Connor on the Today show.

Update On Muhammad the Teddy Bear

Thankfully, the authorities in Sudan are reducing Gillian Gibbons (read previous post) punishment from the 40 lashes with a bamboo cane to 15 days in jail and deportation.

In response, thousands of Sudanese took to the streets in an armed mob and demanded Gibbons' death. The picture to the left and the following report are from the Associated Press:

Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and knives, rallied Friday in a central square and demanded the execution of a British teacher convicted of insulting Islam for allowing her students to name a teddy bear "Muhammad."

In response to the demonstration, teacher Gillian Gibbons was moved from the women's prison near Khartoum to a secret location for her safety, her lawyer said.

The protesters streamed out of mosques after Friday sermons, as pickup trucks with loudspeakers blared messages against Gibbons, who was sentenced Thursday to 15 days in prison and deportation. She avoided the more serious punishment of 40 lashes.

British Woman Faces Lashing for Teddy bear Named Muhammad

Gillian Gibbons, a British woman who teaches kids in Sudan, is facing severe punishment for allowing her class to name a teddy bear "Muhammad".

The controversy began when Gibbons asked the kids in her class to suggest names for the class teddy bear. The class chose "Muhammad" , naming the teddy bear after one of the students.

Islamic fundamentalists took the naming of the teddy bear as an insult to the prophet of Islam, Muhammad. As a punishment, they have determined that Gibbons should receive 40 lashes with a bamboo cane, a punishment common in their religion for "blasphemy" against the prophet.

Despite an international outcry, including moderate Muslims, the authorities are going ahead with this outrageous punishment.

Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said he was "appalled" at the decision. He said: "This is a disgraceful decision and defies common sense."

"There was clearly no intention on the part of the teacher to deliberately insult the Islamic faith."

You can see what a lashing looks like in the picture at the left. This is another example of the irrationality of the religion of Islam, which is more interested in beating and killing innocent women and children than in justice, peace, and love.

Don't believe all the people who say Islam is a religion of peace. Wherever you find Islam, you find terrorism, torture, hate, war, the denial of human dignity, and no value for human life.

Pakistan's Musharraf Leaves Military Post

Under extreme pressure from the USA and other allies, and with mounting political turmoil in his own country, General Musharraf turned over the military command of Pakistan and will now be sworn in as a civilian president.

Musharraf had suspended the Pakistan's constitution earlier this month, had imprisoned thousands of political protesters, and replaced the supreme court with his own judges in an attempt to hold onto power.

With the return of former heads-of-state Bhutto and Sharif, and with major pressure from the Bush administration, Musharraf had no choice but to hold to his original promise of relinquishing his military leadership and assuming the role of a civilian president.

How much control of the military Musharraf has really given up remains to be seen. He will most likely have a strong hand in military affairs until the next election, when a possible coalition government headed by either Bhutto or Sharif could see Musharraf out of power and possibly defending himself from prosecution on military or civil crimes.

Meanwhile, the Bush administration has to give whatever aid is necessary to make sure that Pakistan's nuclear weapons do not fall into the hands of terrorists.

The turmoil in Pakistan should be a lesson that no Islamic country should be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons. With terrorist organizations like al Qaeda having the ability to cause tremendous instability and the lack of respect the leaders in Islamic countries have for the rule of law, countries dominated by Muslims should be denied the development and possession of nuclear weapons.

The US should take the lead in blocking countries like Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. If preemptive military action is required to keep these Islamic countries from going nuclear, it is a small price to pay for a world free of nuclear terrorism.

Wednesday's Hero: Cpl. Jordan M. Moehnle

Cpl. Jordan M. Moehnle takes time out of leading his squad in a patrol through Fallujah's Nazaal district to spend some time interacting with local children. Moehnle, who is on his second tour in Iraq, said the changes he has witnessed since he was last here in 2006 have been dramatic. "The city was like the Wild West, we'd put our heads and and drive down (the middle of Fallujah) and hope not to get shot," he said. "Since we've been here (this year), we can stop and shoot the breeze."

You can read more here.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

Flawed Temperature Data Used to Support Global Warming

Did you ever wonder where they get the recorded data that scientists use to measure the earth's temperature?

This is an important question because they are using the "rise" in earth's temperature to prove that global warming is man-made and then use global warming as a political weapon against the USA and other industrialized countries.

If you live in the USA, your liberty and freedom is in danger from the global warming hysteria. Already, the Federal, State, and local governments are making small assaults on our freedom because they feel that our lifestyle in America is leading to global warming.

But the data that is being used to prove this global warming myth is flawed. Temperature recording stations such as the one pictured here are part of the formula that gives scientists the overall temperature of the earth.


Some of the temperature recording stations are near barbecue pits, trash burn barrels, airplane engines, tennis courts, parking lots, air conditioners, and other environments that distort the temperature being recorded in the station.

This results in inaccurate data, which leads to inaccurate conclusions about the real state of the earth's temperature.

Don't let liberals who want to use global warming as a way to take away our freedoms get away with this.

Share this information with your friends and family. Showing them the truth is the best weapon against the lie of man-made global warming.

Asian "Sun Bear" Facing Extinction

What's killing the sun bears?

The Asian sun bear, the smallest of the bear species, is facing extinction because of deforestation and poaching. Only about 10,000 of these little bears are left.

The habitat of the sun bear stretches from India to Indonesia; the only area that the sun bear population appears to be stable is in Thailand, where they have a logging ban.

Meanwhile, the bear populations in the Mexico, the USA, and Canada continue to grow.

Although deforestation and poaching are to blame in the declining numbers of sun bears, Asiatic black bears, and giant pandas, what creates the deforestation and poaching in the first place?

The simple answer is the lack of free-market capitalism in the countries of the southeast Asia.

In the USA, logging companies in the free market have to plant trees to replace the ones they cut down or they would eventually run out of trees and go out of business. This is the reason that there continue to be plenty of forests for our bears to live in and increase in numbers.

In southeast Asia, people legally (logging)and illegally (poaching) strip their country of it's natural resources, like bears and trees, without bothering to replace them. Without the responsibilities that pressure both producer and consumer in the free market, people living under socialist and communist governments get what profit they can for now and don't plan for the future, which is inherently bleak.

What's killing the sun bears' future is oppressed people without a future of their own.

Video Tribute to Our Veterans

Check out this video at military.com...

Veteran's Day: Correcting The Shame of the VA

Today is the day that we honor our veterans who have served our country defending America and protecting our rights and liberties.

Our rights and liberties are under attack in the USA from within and without. While our military fights the physical enemy that seeks to destroy America, the citizens of the USA who value their freedoms must fight a war of ideas and propaganda in their schools, town halls, State and Federal government, and the media.

The veterans of our armed services need to be treated better also. Ever since our Republic was established, the veterans who fought the good fight have been neglected and the promise and duty we have to them has been ignored.

It's time that we step up to the plate as our military has done and make new efforts to take care of their medical, psychological, and rehabilitative needs. The short-changing has to stop!

The solution is for the Federal government to set up a fund that provides these soldiers with the care they need from the private sector. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) must be abolished since it has proven woefully inadequate to care for the needs of the bravest and most deserving among us.

If there is any government agency that demonstrates the inadequacy of Federal bureaucracy in comparison to the proficiency of the private sector, the Department of Veterans Affairs is it. From bureaucratic waste to outright neglect of our veterans, the VA is an abomination and must be eradicated.

The scandal surrounding the conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center is just the tip of the iceberg; politics coupled with apathy has created a bloated vestigial structure that must be removed like an inflamed appendix (although you wouldn't want it removed by the VA!).

The measure of our gratitude for our veterans should not be parades, observances, or speeches. The greatest measure of our gratitude is seen in how we take care of those who have shown the courage and devotion to our country and are the "True Heroes" of our generation.

Write your senators and congressmen and demand that they rectify the deplorable way our government treats our veterans.

US National Debt Tops $9.1 Trillion

The United States national debt now tops $9.1 trillion dollars, which means each citizen, including the kids of America, owes $30,030.29 as their part of the debt.

Over 40% of the money is owed to the Federal Reserve Bank, over 30% to foreign and international investors, and other significant chunks are owed to government agencies that had cash built up, like the Social Security fund.

The liberal spending policies of the last 40 years have left our government in a debt that will not be paid back in the current system of tax collection and economic planning. Much of the problem is that the Federal government has abandoned the economic principles which were originally mandated in our Constitution.

Presidential candidate Ron Paul wants to return to a monetary policy very similar to the one described in the original Constitution, which would be great if that was possible. Another solution is the Fair Tax, which would remove all income taxes and impose something similar to a national sales tax.

The Fair Tax has a more realistic chance of being implemented and would not only help us wipe out the national debt, but would also address other concerns like the bankruptcy of the Social security system.

Weather Channel Founder: Global Warming ‘Greatest Scam in History’

John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, says that the global warming fears are a "manufactured crisis" and the "greatest scam in history" according to a article he wrote on ICECAP's website.

Describing the alarmism surrounding global warming as being politically motivated, he added: "Now their ridiculous manipulated science has been accepted as fact and become a cornerstone issue for CNN, CBS, NBC, the Democratic Political Party, the Governor of California, school teachers and, in many cases, well informed but very gullible environmentally conscientious citizens."

He also downplays the drastic effects that global warming critics warn will happen: " There is no run away climate change. The impact of humans on climate is not catastrophic. Our planet is not in peril.... As the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted."

Coleman is currently the weatherman at KUSI News 6 in San Diego, California.

Iran Advances Nuclear Program

Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced today that his country now has 3,000 fully functional centrifuges used to enrich uranium.

Enriching uranium is a key process to building nuclear bombs, which Ahmadinejad says is not the purpose of his country's nuclear program.

The world community is concerned about the growing threat of Iran building nuclear weapons, but so far only economic sanctions have been imposed.

The rulers of Iran, who are Islamic fundamentalists waiting for the end of the world, are very hostile to the United States and particularly Israel.

Ahmadinejad has repeatedly threatened to wipe out Israel in the past and already has missiles capable of reaching Israel. Iran is also getting more advanced military equipment from Russia and China.

Iran is also supplying the terrorists in Iraq with advanced explosives that are killing dozens of US soldiers every month. There is no doubt that Iran presents the biggest security challenge the world faces today.

Either the USA or Israel is going to have to step up to the plate and destroy Iran's nuclear development facilities or face the possibility of a nuclear attack on Israel or the USA; or that Iran will blackmail it's enemies and neighbors by holding the threat of nuclear war over their heads.

Pakistan In Trouble

Pakistan's President Musharraf, pictured on the left, declared martial law and suspended the country's constitution three days ago in an attempt to maintain his political power. Thousands of protesters have been arrested, many severely beaten.

Musharraf claims he is trying to control the Islamic militants that threaten his government, but his army is arresting lawyers, judges and political activists and seizing control of the media. Musharraf is establishing a military dictatorship, which will lead to a revolution in his country.

Pakistan under Musharraf's rule has supposedly been an ally in the "war on terror", but the lack of progress in fighting the Taliban and other Islamic militants in the country shows that Musharraf has been trying to appease the terrorists and keep friendly with the USA for the $10 billion in foreign aid we have given him.

The Bush administration should let Musharraf be overthrown and replaced by Benazir Bhutto, pictured on the right, who is more moderate and would work much better with the USA as an ally.

GI Joe: A Sign of Things to Come?


Paramount is looking to make a GI Joe movie, but instead of being a U.S. Marine, GI Joe will be part of an international military force.

This is just part of a liberal trend to undermine America's sovereignty and make the USA just another country.

"Sovereignty" is defined as "having political independence", and there are people and organizations here and worldwide that would like America to give up it's independence and submit to the will of international organizations, like the U.N.

This would weaken our country and help end the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today.

We need to elect conservative leaders who will stand up to this pressure and put America first. Mike Huckabee is just such a leader.

The DREAM Act and Immigration

Last week, the U.S. Senate tried to bring a bill called the DREAM Act to cloture.

Cloture is a procedure that takes a bill proposed by a senator and ends the discussion of the bill. The cloture vote must get 60 "yes" votes to end the discussion of the bill, and if it gets the 60 "yes" votes, the Senate is then allowed to vote later on whether to pass the bill or not.


The DREAM Act was a bill that would grant amnesty to illegal aliens and provide them with with benefits (like education) that only legal citizens of this country enjoy.

Conservatives bombarded their senators with faxes, emails, and phone calls asking them to vote "no" on cloture and it was a success.

The good news is that only 52 senators voted "yes" for cloture, ending the chances of it passing; the bad news is that several liberal Republicans voted "yes" also.

California Fires- History Repeats Itself

Harry Reid thinks that the California fires are caused by global warming.

Maybe he should re-think his position.

"It's a natural phenomenon, just part of Mother Nature's way of cleaning out the forest," California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman Daniel Berlant said. "Sometimes we hear, 'This is the worst fire season ever.' But its really an ongoing thing."

Hillary and Socks the Cat


Why did Hillary dump Socks the Cat?

When the Clinton family was in the White House, Bill had his dog Buddy and Hillary had her cat Socks. Hillary used Socks as a prop, just as she used her cookie baking secrets, to make herself look more feminine and domesticated as the First Lady.

Hillary even wrote a book about the First Pets, and claimed that it wasn't until Socks arrived that the White House became a home.

But poor old Socks got dumped by Hillary when she left the White House and Socks wasn't useful as a political tool anymore.

You sure can tell a lot about a person by the way they treat their pets!

Defending Rush Limbaugh and Free Speech



The First Amendment rights of every citizen are under attack from the U.S. Senate.

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has sent a letter signed by 40 other liberal senators demanding that Rush Limbaugh's boss "publicly repudiate" Rush's comments about "phony soldiers" and ask Rush to apologize for his comments.

Aside from the fact that the whole controversy has been cooked up by liberals such as Harry Reid, the greatest danger is the Federal government, led by such people as Harry Reid, clamping down on private citizens and telling them what they can and can't say, especially about politics.

We must act now to stop this trampling of our First Amendment rights. Print a copy of Harry Reid's letter by clicking here.

Next, write "Stop Censoring Free Speech" on the front of the letter and send it to:
Harry Reid
528 Hart Senate Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Let Harry Reid know that you will not give up your free speech rights and will fight for the free speech rights of everyone regardless of their political viewpoint.

A Letter to Al Gore

Dear Al Gore,

As a concerned inhabitant of the earth, I have a simple request for you.

Please have your Nobel Peace Prize medal sent to you via UPS, FedEx, or DHL. You could probably have it delivered in this method for around 20 bucks or so. Sure beats the thousands of dollars you would spend flying to Oslo, Norway in a jet.

I can't see why you would want to fly to Oslo, Norway for the ceremony and pump even more CO2 and pollutants into the atmosphere. After all, if you flew there, wouldn't you be defeating the purpose of what the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to you for?

So just ask the Noble Peace Prize Committee to cancel the ceremony, thus saving all the attendees a ton of money and preventing the release of tons of CO2 into the environment, which is what you claim is the cause of global warming.

Oh, and the money you save, could you donate that to the Mike Huckabee campaign. He could really use it, and you do seem to like former governors from Arkansas.

Sincerely,
Burt Noyes

Al Gore and the Inconvenient Truth

Al Gore, the loser of the 2000 presidential campaign, has received a share of the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in fighting global warming. His main contribution has been a movie named "An Inconvenient Truth" and organizing a concert dedicated to raising awareness of global warming.

The real "inconvenient truth" is that more evidence is pouring in proving that global warming is not caused by man generating greenhouse gases like CO2, but that global warming causes greenhouse gases to rise. The alarmists like Al Gore have it completely backwards. The earth has always had periods of cooling and warming and humans have no influence on this process.

In fact, Al Gore's movie has so many errors and is so politically biased that in Britain teachers must read a disclaimer to students before showing them the film in school.

Interestingly, Al Gore himself has not reduced his giant "carbon footprint". He still flies around the world in private jets, uses huge amounts of energy heating and cooling his homes, and his concerts generated tons of "greenhouse gases" and tons of garbage.

Like most liberals, Al Gore wants to control your life and impose rules on you while not living by the same standards himself. Liberalism results in less liberty and freedom for everyone, and fails every time it is tried.

Mike Huckabee for President in 2008

ConservativeKids.net endorses Mike Huckabee for the Republican presidential nominee in the upcoming election.
Mike Huckabee is strong on the four most important issues facing our country:

1. Huckabee will work to pass the "Fair Tax" which will close down the IRS, eliminate the income tax, reward people who work and save, and stimulate the economy.
2. Huckabee is a strong pro-life candidate who has been consistent and will fight against abortion.
3. Huckabee promises to seal the borders of our country and deport illegal aliens.
4. Huckabee realizes we are in a world war against terrorism, especially Islamic radicals. He will continue the fight against them wherever they are.

Mike Huckabee has other strengths, but we feel these are the most important issues facing our country and will also have the greatest impact on future generations of Americans. Read more about Mike Huckabee at his website by clicking here

The "Phony" Attack on Rush Limbaugh

Liberal senators continued their attack on free speech in America by trying to pass a resolution in the U.S. Senate condemning talk-show host Rush Limbaugh. They say that Rush slandered the military by calling anti-war soldiers "phony" soldiers.

Rush actually called one soldier a phony, a soldier named Jesse Macbeth. Macbeth had been kicked out of the army after 44 days of boot camp, and had never seen any military action.

But Macbeth became a anti-war hero when he falsely claimed to have served as a Army Ranger in the Middle-East. He told stories of witnessing massacres of innocent civilians in Iraq and the burning of the bodies, all supposedly done by our U.S. troops. The anti-war liberals bought the story hook, line and sinker because they hate the military.

Macbeth was finally exposed as the phony he is, and Rush talked about it on his show. There have been other fakers like Macbeth, and Rush rightly called them phonies. But now senators like Harry Reid and Tom Harkin are condemning Rush, even though they know the truth of the matter.

Harry Reid said "During his show last Wednesday, Limbaugh was engaged in one of his typical rants. This one was unremarkable, indistinguishable from his usual drivel, which has been steadily losing listeners for years, until he crossed that line by calling our men and women in uniform who oppose the war in Iraq, and I quote, "phony soldiers." This comment was so beyond the pale of decency, and we can't leave it alone."

Tom Harkin took the cheapest shot: "Maybe he was just high on his drugs again. I don’t know whether he was or not. If so, he ought to let us know."

Harry Reid and Tom Harkin don't really care about the troops serving in Iraq, they have worked to support the terrorists and defeat our military men and women. Their real motive in attacking Rush and other talk-radio hosts is to deny them their free speech. They also hope to drive a wedge between conservatives and Rush, since Rush is the most visible leader of the conservative movement.

Tell Reid and Harkin what you think of them.
Reid's email is: http://reid.senate.gov/contact/email_form.cfm
Harkin's email is: http://harkin.senate.gov/contact/contact.cfm

Conservatives need to let these senators know that we support the troops, that we don't like "phony" soldiers, and that we stand for free speech in America.

Man-made Global Warming a Myth

One of the hottest political issues being discussed is global warming, specifically, man-made global warming.

There's no doubt that we are seeing a very slight worldwide warming trend. Evidence shows that the earth's temperature has been trending upward since the early 1800's. But can we say that man through his industrialization has had a role?

Two recent studies conclude that increasing CO2 levels, which global warming advocates blame on humans, have less to do with causing global warming than previously thought.

One study, which is to appear in the next issue of Science magazine, concludes that warming trends occur before increases in atmospheric CO2. A recent study by Brookhaven scientist Stephen Schwartz also concluded that "it's hard for us to say CO2 drives temperature. It's easier to say temperature drives CO2."

So why do we hear so much about controlling our production of CO2? The answer is that this gives people who believe in big government a chance to make rules and pass laws that take away your personal freedom.

They will be able to tell you what kind of car you can drive, what kind of food you can eat, where you can travel, and what temperature to keep your house at. Their concern for the "environment" is a front for their real motive, to control you, your family, and eventually the entire world.


These communists posing a concerned environmentalists must be stopped from gaining power in our government. Allowing them to do so will result in weakening the USA, taking away your freedoms and rights, and slowing the technological progress that makes this world a better place.

Hillary and Health Care

Young people, you are facing a very bleak future if people like Hillary Clinton are not stopped.

Last week, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton unveiled her new effort to bring all health care in the USA under the control of the Federal government. Three of the mandatory requirements of this health care take-over is that all Americans must buy health insurance, that businesses must cover all employees, and that the insurance coverage will extend to all citizens no matter what their health conditions.

First things first: the Constitution of the United States does not give the Federal government authority to require that any American citizen buy anything. Hillary Clinton and those who promote such plans are undermining the foundation of the Constitution, which is the freedom of each person to make decisions regarding their own person and property.

The second point is that businesses will start to give their employees a choice: keep your job with the new health insurance but take a pay cut, or be laid off. Those who choose to take the pay cut will have less income to live on, and less money to spend and thereby less money to stimulate the economy. Those who are laid off will still get their health insurance, but it will now be paid by the US government, which will put an added burden on those who remain working.

Third, covering "all applicants" no matter what their current health status will shift the burden of paying for their treatment to healthy people who don't need health insurance in the first place. The healthy young people who normally don't buy health insurance will be not only supporting all the Social Security recipients, but now will be expected to pay for the health care of all the unemployed and very sickly people in the country.

Some people think this is socialized medicine, but instead it's pure fascism. Fascism is a system of government where private companies and people own the businesses, but the government makes all the decisions for them. The dictator of Italy, Mussolini, was the head of such a fascist government during WWII, and it caused death and misery for millions.

Young people, you are facing a very bleak future if people like Hillary Clinton are not stopped. Not only will your basic Constitutional rights be trampled, but you will face a bankrupted US government that spent your tax money on the retired, the unemployed, and the sick.

Already, Social Security is facing a $18 TRILLION dollar deficit. You will be expected to pay for this with your hard-earned money in the near future.

Don't let this happen to you. Get informed about your government, learn the Constitution, and be ready to make a difference when you get the chance to vote.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Lectures a Colubia University

Today Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a lecture at Columbia University in NYC. In case you missed it, Ahmadinejad is the leader of the biggest state sponsor of terror in the world, his military is actively engaged in killing our soldiers in Iraq, and he denies the Holocaust ever occurred.

What makes this absolute moron worthy of listening to in one of our American universities?

Columbia University is the leading school of journalism in the world. It is also one of the most liberal.

Liberals love terrorists like the presidents of Iran and Syria, dictators like Castor and Chavez, and cowardly traitors like Dick Durbin, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer. Why?

The simple answer is they all say the same thing. While Ahmadinejad was visiting NYC, he sounded off on a number of subject: Hurricane Katrina, Abu Graib, Guantanamo Bay, the sub-prime mortgage non-crisis, and even , get this, GLOBAL WARMING!

Liberal Democrat Senators sound just like Ahmadinejad and Osama Bin Laden, whose recent tapes touched on the same subjects. It's frightening that the elected leaders of a major political party in the USA sound exactly like the butchers who killed 3,000 innocent Americans on 9/11 and continue to kill and maim our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The liberals must be turned back and defeated in the next election, or we will give terrorists even more reasons to sound like democrats.

Actor Chuck Norris returns from Iraq

Actor Chuck Norris just returned from Iraq and wrote an excellent article about his tour there and what he observed.

He writes: "We were truly amazed at the advances (not absence) of stability and peace in the Al Anbar province....Despite liberal media portrayals, the surge is working .... Though these good reports are by no means the only reports, it sure would be nice to hear a few more of them run on our more liberal news networks."

Included in his report are some pictures of Chuck with both American and Iraqi soldiers and some interesting conversations he had with the brave men and women serving there.

The "Real" Rainbow Fish Story

In the liberal literary circles is a story called "The Rainbow Fish" by Marcus Pfister.
The story is basically this: There is a fish with beautifully colored scales who looks better than all the other shabby fish. To make all the fish "equal", the beautiful fish shares his scales with all the other fish and they all are now equally shabby.
Unfortunately, this story is used to teach young kids that everyone must be equal at the expense of individuality. The shabby fish are taught that it's better to take something nice from somebody instead of working hard to make themselves better looking.
Young people reading this story are being conditioned to believe that it's OK to take property from those who have and give it to those who don't have the work ethic to get their own property.
This is liberalism at it's most sinister, teaching children to look to a bigger and more powerful government to give them what they want, instead of working to improve their lives themselves.
In the real world, there is no true "equality", everyone has their own strengths, weaknesses, talents, backgrounds, environment, hereditary traits, and education. All these factors make everyone different from everyone else, not equal.
America is great because we have a diverse population that rewards people for working hard and taking care of themselves. Conservatives believe the government is a hindrance to progress and that the less government is involved in peoples' lives, the more prosperous they can become.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will not visit "Ground Zero"

Due to the protest of thousands of patriotic Americans, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will not visit "Ground Zero", the former site of the World Trade Center. He had planned a visit there to lay a wreath, with the full protection and escort of the NYPD and the U.S. Secret Service.
Thankfully, the public outrage was so great that Ahmadinejad cancelled his visit.
If he had gone there, it would have been a huge public-relations victory for him in the Islamic terrorist culture. Posters of him at Ground Zero would have appeared all across the world in the radicals' homes with titles like "Ahmadinejad conquers America a second time". Ahmadinejad is a recognized sponsor of terrorism and Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism and also intent on destroying Israel and the U.S.A.
Conservatives should take note that when they really push hard on an issue, they can win against liberals and terrorists. The only hope for keeping America "the land of the free" is for conservatives to come together and push the conservative agenda. Do your part by writing your Congressmen and Senators and let your voice be heard.
