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 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 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?


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 "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.
