A Letter to Discovery Channel; National Emergency Powers of Our President; FCC Powers; Federal Debt Powers; New Unconfirmed Appointee to Department of Justice; We Pay Lawyers for Illegal Criminals; Unwarranted Searches in Florida

One of my readers wrote a wonderful message to Discovery Channel, sent to words follow:
I am very troubled by the planned programming of "The 99" which, in my opinion, glorifies Islam and indoctrinates our children in stealth fashion to Islamic “values” with the use of comic strip characters.  I have reviewed your current Discovery for Kids programming and see no other shows approaching the topic of religion.  Any religion.  If this new program is meant to teach tolerance of Islam within America’s Judeo-Christian culture, then it is fair to expect that Discovery for Kids will create additional shows which glorify the Judeo-Christian (and perhaps other) religions to teach tolerance of these within the Islamic culture.  After all, aren’t radical Muslims the ones who believe that all infidels (i.e., those who do not believe in Islam) should be killed in the name of Allah?  But I imagine this will be left out of your show.

As if the proposed content of “The 99” were not controversial enough, the names you have chosen for your comic strip characters are absolutely denigrating to Americans…  While your Muslim characters' names (Jabbar the Powerful and Widad the Loving) are positive and alluring, your American character's name (Darr The Afflicter) is both negative and disagreeable.  What sort of message is this sending to our young, impressionable children about America and being American?   Or perhaps this is part of the plan towards indoctrination…  Make them feel so bad about their country and themselves that they convert to a more “peaceful” and “tolerant” society. Rubbish!
Newsbusters reveals: "Of course, a lot of noise was made about the Islamic Center, mosque, down near the World Trade Center, but I think there wasn't enough sort of careful analysis and evaluation of where this bigotry toward 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, and how this seething hatred many people feel for all Muslims, which I think is so misdirected, and so wrong -- and so disappointing."
She really winced on that last word. When comedian Mo Rocca said he went to "really fancy schools" and "I cannot tell you five things about Islam," Couric shot back "Maybe we need a Muslim version of The Cosby Show."  [Katie, there WAS a show on tv about an American Muslim family - one full season of 24 - a sleeper cell family who lied as their religion taught them to in order to fit in and be ready when "the call" came through to aid in the destruction of America.  While we can assume that this family was not the typical Muslim family in America, either Muslims here refuse to stand up and shout that radical Islam is an abomination - or radical Islam is such an abomination that the good Muslims fear for their lives for condemning those terrorists and for standing up for their religion of "peace".  While most families in America and Europe are reducing their rates of childbirth, Muslims families continue to have about 8 children each, just waiting for the day when their numbers are large enough to change the politics of America and Europe in ways we will regret.]

American Thinker writes about Barack Obama: By way of executive proclamation, President Obama has secured for himself the power to declare martial law in the event of a national "emergency," real or contrived, and without the accountability typically required by the Posse Comitatus Act and the Nation Emergencies Act of 1976. 

This is the legacy of the "conservative" Bush administration.  National emergencies have now been transformed into power-grabbing devices thanks to the virtually unnoticed National Security Presidential Directive (NSPD) 51. 

NSPD 51 empowers the president to co-opt all state and local government authority in the event that he declares a national emergency.  This is a self-declared power not subjugated to the National Emergencies Act of 1976 as in previous directives.

President Obama quickly went beyond NSPD 51, signing an order creating a "Council of Governors" who would be put in charge of declaring martial law.  The directive is in direct violation of Posse Comitatus and the Insurrection Act.  This "Council of Governors" answers only to President Obama.

In October of last year, President Obama declared a national emergency in the midst of the much-hyped swine flu crisis.  This declaration was largely overlooked.  By combining his October declaration with the provisions of NSPD 51, President Obama [and any future President] can now be considered virtually uninhibited by Congress and free to flip the switch at any moment.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 21% of Likely U.S. Voters want the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to regulate the Internet as it does radio and television. Fifty-four percent (54%) are opposed to such regulation, and 25% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
( - The federal government has accumulated more new debt--$3.22 trillion ($3,220,103,625,307.29)—during the tenure of the 111th Congress than it did during the first 100 Congresses combined, according to official debt figures published by the U.S. Treasury.
That equals $10,429.64 in new debt for each and every one of the 308,745,538 people counted in the United States by the 2010 Census. [Now can we finally stop hearing about the Bush debts?]   
Newsbusters writes: All right, this president sure knows how to pick them. The Anointed One's nominee to be the number two at the Department of Justice thinks that 9/11 is similar to any other domestic crime. In a 2002 article James Cole wrote, quote, "Our country has faced many forms of devastating crime including countless acts of rape, child abuse and murder. The acts of September 11th were horrible, but so are these other things."

Impeach Obama writes: Shy of her first anniversary on the federal bench, an Obama-appointed judge known for promoting “racial tolerance” has ordered U.S. taxpayers to provide criminally convicted immigrants with “diminished mental capacities” lawyers to fight deportation.
The ruling is believed to be the first ordering government-financed legal representation in an immigration case. Foreign nationals embroiled in deportation proceedings must pay for their own attorney, unlike criminal defendants who get court-appointed lawyers—financed by American taxpayers—as part of due process when they can’t afford it.
WTSP writes: Florida is among several states now holding what are called "no refusal" checkpoints.
It means if you refuse a breath test during a traffic stop, a judge is on site, and issues a warrant that allows police to perform a mandatory blood test.
It's already being done in several counties, and now Unfried is working to bring it to the Tampa Bay area.
Supporters, though, say you could see the "no refusal" checkpoints in the Bay area by October.
"We don't want to violate people's civil rights. That's the last thing we want to do, but we're here to save lives," Unfried said.
She adds that this type of checkpoint would be heavily advertised, with the goal of deterring any drunk driving.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has recently said he wants to see more states hold similar programs.

  1. Just right on re: Discovery program's propaganda re: Muslims...AND, let's be sure our Congressional delegation is made of aware of NSPD 51 and get it modified/repealed before Obama does something to further endanger our freedoms !! Thanks for sharing
