True mission of the Tea Party

True mission of the Tea Party:

"The Tea Party movement will either transform the Republican party back to the party of Reagan and Constitutionally conservative values, or the GOP will inevitably face a third party movement that will quickly consume the Republican party into a party of inconsequence. Either way, it will be a party with conservative principles and beliefs. Please come check out a clear alternative to politics as usual, the Lake Area Conservative Club. For more information, You can go to LakeAreaConservativeClub.org, or CamdentonTeaParty.org"

Iran Vows to Unplug Internet

Iran Vows to Unplug Internet:

"Iran is taking steps toward an aggressive new form of censorship: a so-called national Internet that could, in effect, disconnect Iranian cyberspace from the rest of the world.

The leadership in Iran sees the project as a way to end the fight for control of the Internet, according to observers of Iranian policy inside and outside the country.

Iran, already among the most sophisticated nations in online censoring, also promotes its national Internet as a cost-saving measure for consumers and as a way to uphold Islamic moral codes..."

Gunny G's Old Salt Marines Tavern Weblog: Secret Execution USMC?

Gunny G's Old Salt Marines Tavern Weblog: Secret Execution USMC?:

"The following information is provided in response to inquiries and requests for information received.
I first learned of the book, 'The Marines' Secret Execution,' from the author several months ago. At that time I sent out the author's provided pre-publication information (URL) to several individuals for purposes of information and discussion. Since then there has been both discussion and inquiries from Marines, and others, regarding the book. The book deals with the Marine Raiders, Guadalcanal, and the alleged execution of two Marines there in 1942.
In some cases, the responses were of a negative nature from those who disagree with the author's claim that an execution of two Marines had taken place by the Marine Corps, on Guadalcanal, in 1942. Others suggested that the author was not a Marine at all as he claimed, but then others stated that they had ascertained, through official records, that he indeed had served in the Corps.
Conversely, others inquired, expressing interest, as to how to contact Mr. Miller for more information, or how his book could be obtained.
My own interest was tweaked by these events, and I attempted to research this subject as best I could. I am presently in the process of reading the book at the present time.
I have also exchanged e-mail with the author"

Fat City: Thank you, Illinois taxpayers, for my cushy life.

Fat City: Thank you, Illinois taxpayers, for my cushy life.: "After 34 years of teaching sociology at the University of Illinois at Chicago, I recently retired at age 64 at 80 percent of my pay for life. This calculation was based on a salary spiked by summer teaching, and since I no longer pay into the retirement fund, I now receive significantly more than when I “worked.” But that’s not all: There’s a generous health insurance plan, a guaranteed 3 percent annual cost of living increase, and a few other perquisites. Having overinvested in my retirement annuity, I received a fat refund and—when it rains, it pours—another for unused sick leave. I was also offered the opportunity to teach as an emeritus for three years, receiving $8,000 per course, double the pay for adjuncts, which works out to over $200 an hour. Another going-away present was summer pay, one ninth of my salary, with no teaching obligation."

Andrew Sullivan: ‘I’m Too Terrified For The Country’ To Urge Palin To Run Because She Could Win

Andrew Sullivan: ‘I’m Too Terrified For The Country’ To Urge Palin To Run Because She Could Win: "Chris Matthews doubted Sarah Palin’s ability to be elected President, just days after doubting the chances of any other Republican from stopping her from claiming the Republican nomination. However, one of Palin’s harshest critics, Andrew Sullivan, warned Matthews that she could in fact go all the way. Sullivan listed some possible scenarios where Palin could realistically be elected and Matthews concluded only an “Armageddon moment” could make it possible.

Matthews thought she might have traction as the “angry candidate,” yet Sullivan was convinced Palin could be the “principled candidate,” in that she could argue she’s the only one effectively representing the grassroots conservative movement. Since Matthews occasionally admits that he wants more exciting candidates on the Republican side to enter the race, he jokingly asked Sullivan whether he was secretly trying to encourage Palin to pull the trigger and run. Yet Sullivan wasn’t laughing and responded:

“I’m too terrified for the country to do such a thing. But I don’t, I do think Washington has misread her, underestimated her, and doesn’t see the cunning there.”"

Search For Bigfoot In Spokane

Search For Bigfoot In Spokane: "SPOKANE, Wash. -- A Spokane woman out for a day hike along the Spokane river claims to have proof of the mysterious and elusive Bigfoot.

Samantha, who did not give her last name, and her friends were hiking at Downriver Park over the weekend when they captured Bigfoot by using their iPhone camera.

Samantha posted a YouTube video of the creature a few days later.

In her post, Samantha said she didn't notice Bigfoot until she looked at her video when she got home.

So, far more than 1,500 people have viewed the video online.

'Someone asked me in the comments section if I believed in Bigfoot before the video,' wrote Samantha in an e-mail to KXLY.

'I have never given it much thought, but now I'm not so sure. Seem real enough to me,' she said.

KXLY showed the video to several students and staff at Spokane Community College, where the school mascot is Bigfoot himself."

Israeli Economists Agree with Rand Paul: End Foreign Aid ("Paul: the Zionist Choice for President")

Israeli Economists Agree with Rand Paul: End Foreign Aid ("Paul: the Zionist Choice for President"):

"However, one critical aspect of the debate that has been neglected from public discourse on the topic — and that Sen. Paul may be unaware of — is the opposition of numerous Jewish and Israeli economists and religious Zionist groups to Israeli foreign aid.
Like Sen. Paul, these figures believe that foreign aid is an affront against Israeli liberty and sovereignty, as well as a drain on the development of numerous sectors of the Israeli economy, such as the weapons and biotechnology industries."

E-Verify, The Epitaph Of Illegal Immigration

E-Verify, The Epitaph Of Illegal Immigration:

"Chief Justice Roberts wrote the main opinion for the court, which will leave the door open for states to end the illegal alien invasion:

“We hold that Arizona’s licensing law falls well within the confines of the authority Congress chose to leave to the states and therefore is not expressly preempted.” “no basis in law, fact, or logic” for the argument that Arizona should be stopped from doing so in the name of federal “preemption” of state activity.

Other states are following Arizona's example and considering requiring all employers to enroll in the Homeland Security Department's voluntary E-Verify program, which compares employees' names and Social Security numbers with government data bases. Georgia has just recently enacted this type of law.

A federal version of E-Verify will soon be introduced by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-TX. Congressman Smith weighed in on E-Verify:

“I am pleased the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the Arizona E-Verify law and their right to revoke business licenses for employers that knowingly hire illegal immigrants. Not only is this law constitutional, it is commonsense.”"

The War Prayer by Mark Twain

The War Prayer by Mark Twain:

"It was a time of great and exalting excitement. The country was up in arms, the war was on, in every breast burned the holy fire of patriotism; the drums were beating, the bands playing, the toy pistols popping, the bunched firecrackers hissing and sputtering; on every hand and far down the receding and fading spreads of roofs and balconies a fluttering wilderness of flags flashed in the sun; daily the young volunteers marched down the wide avenue gay and fine in their new uniforms, the proud fathers and mothers and sisters and sweethearts cheering them with voices choked with happy emotion as they swung by;

nightly the packed mass meetings listened, panting, to patriot oratory which stirred the deepest deeps of their hearts and which they interrupted at briefest intervals with cyclones of applause, the tears running down their cheeks the while; in the churches the pastors preached devotion to flag and country and invoked the God of Battles, beseeching His aid in our good cause in outpouring of fervid eloquence which moved every listener.

It was indeed a glad and gracious time, and the half dozen rash spirits that ventured to disapprove of the war and cast a doubt upon its righteousness straightway got such a stern and angry warning that for their personal safety's sake they quickly shrank out of sight and offended no more in that way."

Take a look around sometime and maybe you'll notice that despite all the talk about Obamacare or socialized medicine, you never hear conservatives or libertarians go after Medicare. Is it really constitutional? Is this good socialized medicine? Why can't anyone articulate a plan to get out of Medicare?"

On May 28, 2011 Television host Adam Kokesh and several other activists participating in a flash-mob were arrested at the publicly-funded Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Their crime? Silently dancing, in celebration of the first amendment’s champion; a clear violation of their right to free-expression. In an excessive use of force, video was captured of Adam being body slammed and placed in a choke for his non-crime.

The Jose Guerena Raid: A Demonstration of Tactical Incompetence:

"UPDATE #3: I’ve had a chance to talk with my son about this some more, and a good summary of what this raid was like is to say that “It looks like the Iraqi Army raiding a house.” I had known that the ISF wasn’t present during much of his time in Fallujah (most of the security forces were Marines and IPs), so I asked him, “Why do you say that? Have you seen the Iraqi Army raiding a house?” He said yes, and I responded by asking him what it looked like? He said “It looks like that. Just like that. People falling all over each other, emptying their weapons, shooting at everything, and shooting at nothing.”"

"By Is the American Medical System’s passion for slash, burn, and poison treatment methods really a part of a global conspiracy to give a chosen few control over America’s economy?

A brilliant new book titled “The Trillion Dollar Conspiracy,How The New World Order, Man-Made Diseases and Zombie Banks Are Destroying America” by gifted author Jim Marrs posits just that theme.

On pg. 135, Dr. Michael WIlkes of U. of CA. says, “Most pharmaceutical companies devote huge amounts of money to prevent control and cure of diseases.”"

From Bush to Obama, the snooping goes on

From Bush to Obama, the snooping goes on:

"“It allows investigators to get an order from the FISA court permitting them to compel the production of any tangible thing that is relevant to an investigation. It’s pretty unlimited in scope. Any record or other thing that pertains to a suspected agent of a foreign power or someone in contact with them is under the law considered to be ‘presumptively relevant’. That means the judge has no discretion to deny such requests. The records don’t have to belong to anyone who is thought to be guilty of anything.”

Reporting from Warsaw, Poland — President Obama brought his genealogical odyssey full circle here on Saturday when, just days after paying homage to his ancestral roots in Ireland, he announced that he is also 'a little bit Polish.'

He says he's Polish by way of Chicago, that is, which according to local calculations is often said to be the largest city of Polonia outside Warsaw.

'If you live in Chicago and you haven't become a little bit Polish,' Obama joked, 'then something's wrong with you.'"

Marilyn M. Barnewall -- Dead Bodies, Deception and Honor

Marilyn M. Barnewall -- Dead Bodies, Deception and Honor:

"As I write this 2011 Memorial Day article, our President has just made an utter fool of himself (and embarrassed our country) while toasting – or, perhaps better said, attempting to toast – the Queen of England. Everyone stood and he began talking – and when “God Save the Queen,” the British National Anthem, began playing, he continued talking. “To the Queen…” he finally said, raising his glass. No one else moved – including the Queen. They were standing at attention for their country’s National Anthem.

In Ireland, Obama-ites didn’t even prepare well enough to know the Presidential Limo (fortunately it was the false flag limo) couldn’t “get over the hump.” He can’t travel without embarrassing his country. If this man doesn’t understand that he’s surrounded by idiots, he’s not smart enough to be President of the United States.

Those who have followed my articles over the years know that my Memorial Day articles always include photos of military cemeteries around the world, listing the number of our young men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while fighting on foreign soil. The photos below are offered with the greatest respect for the sacrifices made.

But I want to say something first."....................

Lynne Hybels

The 'greenest' church on the planet? Scripture as it relates to the Palestinians? Fighting American 'racial injustice'?

Meet the latest addition to President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, a White House group already replete with advocates for using religion to advance 'social justice.'

In January, Obama named to his faith council Lynne Hybels, a leader of Willow Creek Church, an inter-denominational, multi-generational megachurch located in a Chicago suburb.

The church is led by Hybels' husband, Bill, a social justice advocate who created the Global Leadership Summit, an international Christian group.

Lynne Hybels' official title at Willow Creek Church is Advocate for Global Engagement. She is also a regular contributor to the progressive Sojourners magazine, the publication of a ministry by the same name professing a devotion to the pursuit of 'social justice.'"
