What American Muslim Children are Being Taught; Let's "Eliminate" 25 Million People;

The following are materials obtained at Islamic centers in the U.S., and this is what the Muslim children are being taught. The website tells which book or pamphlet and which page is being quoted herein.

1. "The objective of Islamic Jihad is to put an end to the dominance of the un-Islamic systems of government and replace them with Islamic rule, Islam intends to bring about this revolution not in one country or in a few countries but in the entire world. Although initially it is the duty of every member of the Muslim party to work for revolution wherever he lives the final purpose is nothing but a world revolution. Any revolutionary ideology which upholds the good of all mankind, and is not of a mere national unit, cannot limit its horizons to those of any single country or nation".
2. "If you accept the whole of Islam in your life...a time will come when Communism will fear for its survival in Moscow, Capitalistic democracy will tremble for its safety in Washington and New York".
3. "Islam requires the earth-not just a portion, but the whole planet"

4. "Every Muslim should have the desire for martyrdom in his heart. If he is unable to go into the battlefield, he should certainly have the desire for martyrdom in his heart"

5. "It is learnt from this Hadith that physical jihad will continue right till the day of resurrection and will be waged as such in some part or the other of the world". We do not deny the benefit of waging an academic and intellectual war. However, an intellectual war alone cannot be fought everywhere. There are special places and occasions for it. In short, despite waging a jihad with the tongue, pen, rationale and intellect, the Muslim community cannot be absolved of the duty of waging physical jihad".

6. "A martyr will go directly to heaven".

7. "The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land, will be that they will be killed".

8. "Whatever is against Sharia, is unlawful for Muslims, irrespective of any Government which has declared it lawful or has ordered it to be acted upon because the right of legislation for any Government is restricted to the condition that the law framed by it should be in accordance with the Sharia, its fundamentals and legal spirit. Now, if any Government considers it lawful to exceed these prescribed limits, then because of this attitude of the Government, unlawful shall not become of this attitude of the Government, unlawful shall not become lawful and it would not be lawful for any Muslim to act upon or enforce laws against the Sharia. Rather in such a situation it becomes obligatory for every Muslim to refuse to accept those laws and abstain from acting upon them, for it is unconditional for the Muslims to obey the orders of men in power".

9. "Justice demands that tyranny and oppression should not be allowed to work havoc in the world." The Holy Qur'an clearly beings out the fact that Qital (physical Jihad/Fighting) is not an end in itself in Islam, but a means to a higher and nobler end - the welfare of humanity". "The person who raises arms in order to curb tyranny and oppression and to eradicate evil are the blessed souls who fight in the way of Allah".

10. "The Islamic State is that it is an ideological state." The Qur'an and the Sunnah would be the chief sources of of the public law of the land".

11. "The Front is Everywhere. You have been well aware now of the categorical injunction of the Islamic Shari'ah that whenever an enemy attacks any part of Darul Islam, Jihad for its defense becomes obligatory (Fard) on every Muslim." "Jihad is obligatory on all the Muslims does not necessarily mean that all of us should take to arms and proceed to the battle-front. Jihad is a very wide term and its connotation is not confined to just the clash of arms only. In fact it denotes the entire war-effort which is made to uphold our cause and win victory over the enemy. Out of the many and varied fronts of war, battlefield is just one of them. Warfare requires total effort and all sections of people-nay, each and every citizen in the rear-must contribute his share, however humble, to strengthen the capability of those fighting on the front line. This duty of doing our best, dedicated to enhance the fighting ability of our soldiers, is too a Jihad. Indeed, every bit of work done, the minutest service rendered, is Jihad. The gallantry and dedication of the armed personnel no doubt is the key to success but next in importance for the successful prosecution of war is the procurement of money, means, and material. Besides, the qur'an warns us that if a person fails to contribute financially, he in face invites his own doom".
ules it. Islam requires the earth-not just a portion, but the whole planet. Towards this end, Islam wishes to press into service all forces which can bring about a revolution and a composite term for the use of all these forces is ‘Jihad'.

12. "Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it. Islam requires the earth-not just a portion, but the whole planet. Towards this end, Islam wishes to press into service all forces which can bring about a revolution and a composite term for the use of all these forces is ‘Jihad'.
13. "Slay the disbelievers whenever you find them. The disbelievers should be killed in whatever month or time they are found".

14. "Islam is a revolutionary ideology and program which seeks to alter the social order of the whole world and rebuild it in conformity with its own tenants and ideals"

15. "Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it."

16.  "Islam requires the earth---not just a portion, but the whole planet"

17.  "The objective of the Islamic ‘Jihad' is to eliminate the rule of an un-
Islamic system and establish in its stead an Islamic system of state rule.         
Islam does not intend to confine this revolution to a single State or a few
Countries; the aim of Islam is to bring about a universal revolution."

Confederate Yankee writes of the testimony from an FBI informant, and provides the video of Bill Ayers from back in the days of the Weather Underground: "Just a Little Genocide"

I asked, "well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?" and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.
And when I say "eliminate," I mean "kill."
Twenty-five million people.
I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.
And they were dead serious.
This was the testimony of FBI informant Larry Grathwohl in the 1982 documentary No Place to Hide.
The 25 people plotting the extermination of the 25 million Americans who would bitterly cling to the American way of life?
The Weather Underground, led by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.

Part 3 -Shari'a; 90% of US Mosques Follow Koran and Sunnah; Largest of 1209 US Mosques in Dearborn; Wahabi Influence in Mosques; Obamacare Null; Dems Spreading the Love; Obama in Contempt on Second Issue; Obama Insures 800 Job Losses in Alaska

Part 3 of Nonie Darwish's list of Sharia tenets: 
21-  Rebelliousness on the part of the wife nullifies the husband’s obligation to support her, gives him permission to beat her and keep her from leaving the home.
22-  Divorce is only in the hands of the husband and is as easy as saying: “I divorce you” and becomes effective even if the husband did not intend it.
23-  There is no community property between husband and wife and the husband’s property does not automatically go to the wife after his death.
24-  A woman inherits half what a man inherits.
25-  A man has the right to have up to 4 wives and she has no right to divorce him even if he is polygamous.
26-  The dowry is given in exchange for the woman’s sexual organs.
27-  A man is allowed to have sex with slave women and women captured in battle, and if the enslaved woman is married her marriage is annulled.
28-  The testimony of a woman in court is half the value of a man.
29-  A woman looses custody if she remarries.
30-  To prove rape, a woman must have 4 male witnesses.
31-  A rapist may only be required to pay the bride-money (dowry) without marrying the rape victim.
32-  A Muslim woman must cover every inch of her body which is considered “Awrah,” a sexual organ. Some schools of Sharia allow the face and some don’t.
33-  A Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife caught in the act of adultery. However, the opposite is not true for women since he “could be married to the woman he was caught with.”
The above are clear cut laws in Islam decided by great Imams after years of examination and interpretation of the Quran, Hadith and Mohammed’s life. Now let the learned Imam Rauf tell us what part of the above is compliant with the US constitution?

[So much for saying this is a peaceful religion, Islam....]
Allied Media writes: U.S. mosques that feel they strictly follow the Koran and Sunnah: more than 90 percent [ from Hartford Seminary's Hartford Institute for Religious Research in Connecticut. Muslim organizations cosponsoring the survey are the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Ministry of Imam W. Deen Muhammed, and the Islamic Circle of North America. 2002]
Wikipedia writes: Mosques are usually explicitly Sunni or Shia. There are 1,209 mosques in the United States and the nation's largest mosque, the Islamic Center of America, is in Dearborn, Michigan. It caters mainly to the Shi'a Muslim congregation; however, all Muslims may attend this mosque. It was rebuilt in 2005 to accommodate over 3,000 people for the increasing Muslim population in the region. In addition to immigration, the state, federal and local prisons of the United States may be a contributor to the growth of Islam in the country. J. Michael Waller claims that Muslim inmates comprise 17-20% of the prison population, or roughly 350,000 inmates in 2003. He also claims that 80% of the prisoners who "find faith" while in prison convert to Islam.[79]  On July 31, 2000, Talat Othman opened the Republican National Convention with a Muslim benediction, marking the first time a Muslim had addressed a major US political gathering.[85] [At that time nearly 80% of Muslims voted for Republicans. Now 50% of those vote for Democrats.]  Airports such as the Indianapolis International Airport, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport[89][not in citation given], Kansas City International Airport have installed foot-baths to allow Muslims, particularly taxicab drivers who service the airports, to perform their religious ablutions in a safe and sanitary manner.[90][dead link] and Denver International Airport included a masjid as part of its Interfaith Chapel when opened in 1996[91][dead link] although such developments have not been without criticism.[92]
As of May 30, 2005, over 15,000 Muslims were serving in the United States Armed Forces.[93]
  • Muslim convert journalist Stephen Schwartz, American Jewish Committee terrorism pundit Yehudit Barsky, and U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer have all separately testified to a growing radical Wahhabi influence in U.S. mosques, financed by extremist groups. Barsky claims that 80% of U.S. mosques are so radicalized.[134][135][136] In an effort to counter any extremist influence, ISNA has implemented assorted programs and guidelines in order to help mosques identify and counter any such individuals.[137]
  • The Texas Board of Education voted in favor of a resolution aimed at reducing the influence of Islam in school textbooks and putting a more favorable view of Christianity.[138]
Quoting directly from Judge Vincent's ruling on Obamacare: [the presumption] is even more so when the party to be enjoined is the federal government, for there is a long-standing presumption “that officials of the Executive Branch will adhere to the law as declared by the court. As a result, the declaratory judgment is the functional equivalent of an injunction.”  [And yet the Democrats chose to break the law by not repealing the already null and void law.  When will the Supreme Court write the injunction against Obamacare, or cite our President and Congress with contempt of court?  Why was there still a discussion, as well as a vote, on repealing a law which is already declared null and void (until such time that the Supreme Court hears the case?]
Wikipedia explains: Under Federal Court Rules, section 472, a person who is accused of Contempt needs to be first served with a contempt order and then appear in court to answer the charges. Convictions can only be made when proof beyond a reasonable doubt is achieved.[3]
Punishment can range from the person be imprisoned for a period of less than five years or until the person complies with the order or fine.

YouTube reveals: More quotes from the recent Code Pink anti-capitalist demonstration in Palm Springs, on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas: "send him back to the fields" (he is Afro-American); "after Thomas's impeachment, kill him"; "the Tea Party is racist" [but they aren't, I see]; "cut off Thomas' toes one by one and feed them to him one at a time"; "Thomas is a dumb-s--t scumbag". [Move on Barack Obama, there's no inflammatory language here to condemn..... This seems to be the type of action recently promoted by Ms. Piven, of Cloward and Piven notoriety, seeking revolution.  We add this to more of Obama's past comments: We'll have "hand-to-hand combat" on Capitol Hill; "I'm ready to duel John McCain on taxes" ... So I'll know whose a-- to kick (on oil spill); "I need you to go out there and argue with them and get in their face!]
Bloomberg writes: The Obama Administration acted in contempt by continuing its deepwater-drilling moratorium after the policy was struck down, a New Orleans judge ruled.
Interior Department regulators acted with “determined disregard” by lifting and reinstituting a series of policy changes that restricted offshore drilling, following the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, U.S. District Judge, Martin Feldman of New Orleans ruled yesterday.
“Each step the government took following the court’s imposition of a preliminary injunction showcases its defiance,” Feldman said in the ruling.
“Such dismissive conduct, viewed in tandem with the re-imposition of a second blanket and substantively identical moratorium, and in light of the national importance of this case, provide this court with clear and convincing evidence of the government’s contempt,” Feldman said. 
Feldman also ordered the government to pay the legal fees of Hornbeck Offshore Services LLC, which filed the initial lawsuit. The company had described the fees as “significant.”
Hornbeck “was put to considerable expense, after Judge Feldman issued the injunction, contending with the government’s litigation posturing and defiance of the court’s order,” Sam Giberga, the company’s general counsel, said today in an e-mail.
“The government was not at liberty to impose its own will after the court struck down the policy,” Giberga said. “The government, like any citizen, had to obey the ruling, even if it didn’t like it.” [How many times does our President and his Administration have to be in contempt of court rulings before he faces the penalty, or before Impeachment hearings begin?]
Yahoo Finance writes: Shell Alaska has dropped plans to drill in the Arctic waters of the Beaufort Sea this year and will concentrate on obtaining permits for the 2012 season, company Vice President Pete Slaiby said Thursday.
Alaska receives upward of 90 percent of its general fund revenue from the petroleum industry, and top state officials reacted strongly to the decision. U.S. Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, blamed the Obama administration and the EPA.
"Their foot dragging means the loss of another exploration season in Alaska, the loss of nearly 800 direct jobs and many more indirect jobs," Begich said. "That doesn't count the millions of dollars in contracting that won't happen either at a time when our economy needs the investment."

BECAUSE WE NEED TO KNOW: Who is the Muslim Brotherhood?; What are Their Plans for America?; Learning about Sharia Law; GE Gets Waiver from EPA

From Wikipedia: The [Muslim} Brotherhood's stated goal is to instill the Qur'an and Sunnah as the "sole reference point for ... ordering the life of the Muslim family, individual, community ... and state".[3]

The Muslim Brotherhood has been active in the US since the 1960s. Its stated goals have included propagating Islam and creating havens for Muslims in the US, and integrating Muslims. A main strategy has been dawah or Islamic renewal and outreach. In the 1960s, groups such as U.S. military personnel, prison inmates and African-Americans were specifically targeted for dawah. The goal of the Muslim Brotherhood in the USA is
The process of settlement [of Islam in the United States] is a "Civilization-Jihadist" process with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that all their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" their miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who choose to slack.[74]
American Thinker writes: Radical Islam. What does this mean? Does it mean that there are a few Muslims who take Islam to the extreme and cause violence throughout the world?   In order for innocent people and countries to combat the threat of violent Islamic Jihad, we have to redefine "Radical Islam."  If the majority of Muslims adhere to Sharia law (at least in their hearts), then we must confront the possibility that "Radical Islam" is actually mainstream Islam.

Sharia law is an all or nothing.  A true Muslim can't take certain parts of Sharia and not adhere to certain aspects and not others.  Physical Jihad is a part of Sharia law, and even when Muslims can't fight in the name of Islam, they must support the Mujahadeen (fighters) financially or at the very least in their heart.

Many readers will criticize me for saying that 80 plus percent of Muslims desire Sharia in all aspects.  I can only say this because I have been going to Saudi Arabia and the Middle East since 1979, and the majority of Muslims do desire Sharia law to be implemented in all parts of the world. Over and over we were told the next attacks were going to attack the "hearts" of Americans.  I was persistent and wanted to know exactly what this meant.  We were told the ‘hearts' of Americans were the children of America.
What is most frightening is that my researchers and I have conducted research at over 250 Islamic centers in America.  The vast majority desire to destroy America, yet our House, Senate, president, and senior law enforcement officials give them the opportunity to harm our country and children.

The most important question people have is how do we stop the pending attacks?  The answer is quite simple.  Islam is not a religion.  Islam (according to Islamic scholars) is a military, economic, and political ideology that uses ‘religion' to carry out their ultimate goal of world domination (again according to their own leading scholars both in the U.S. and Middle East).
The Washington Times writes: We also know how the Brotherhood plans to pull off our destruction. Another MB document, this one undated, is called “Phases of the World Underground Movement Plan.” It describes a five-installment program for achieving the triumph of Shariah - together with a status report on the realization of several of the phases’ goals:
Phase 1: “Discreet and secret establishment of leadership.”
Phase 2: “Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities. [The MB] greatly succeeded in implementing this stage. It also succeeded in achieving a great deal of its important goals, such as infiltrating various sectors of the Government.”
Phase 3: “Escalation phase, prior to conflict and confrontation with the rulers, through utilizing mass media. Currently in progress.”
Phase 4: “Open public confrontation with the Government through exercising the political pressure approach. It is aggressively implementing the above-mentioned approach. Training on the use of weapons domestically and overseas in anticipation of zero-hour. It has noticeable activities in this regard.”
Phase 5: “Seizing power to establish their Islamic Nation under which all parties and Islamic groups


In a three part posting, here is what Nonie Darwish, who was born and raised as a Muslim in Cairo Egypt and Gaza, holds a Bachelors degree in Sociology and Anthropology and was a journalist at the Middle East News Agency has warned:

In response to Imam Rauf's outlandish statement that our [American] Constitution is Sharia compliant, Nonie outlines the many ways in which Sharia is antithical to our laws of liberty and equality and since the media will not report or comment on Sharia law, it is important that we reach as many people as possible.  The contrast between Sharia and our Constitution is so stark that it is imperative for Americans to understand the difference.  [It is time for us to wake up.]

1-  Jihad defined as “to war against non-Muslims to establish the religion” is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state (Caliph). Muslim Caliphs who refuse jihad are in violation of Sharia and unfit to rule.
2-  A Caliph can hold office through seizure of power meaning through force.
3-  A Caliph is exempt from being charged with serious crimes such as murder, adultery, robbery, theft, drinking and in some cases of rape.
4-  A percentage of Zakat (alms) must go towards jihad.
5-  It is obligatory to obey the commands of the Caliph, even if he is unjust.
6-  A caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave and a male.
7-  The Muslim public must remove the Caliph in one case, if he rejects Islam.
8-  A Muslim who leaves Islam must be killed immediately.
9-  A Muslim will be forgiven for murder of : 1) an apostasy 2) an adulterer 3) a highway robber. Making vigilante street justice and honor killing acceptable.
10-  A Muslim will not get the death penalty if he kills a non-Muslim.


The LA Times, Reporting from Washington : The Obama administration said for the first time that it supports a role for groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned Islamist organization, in a reformed Egyptian government. [Some are asking for investigations to see if this Administration has been working for this Mubarak overthrow and the Muslim Brotherhood since 2008.  It sounds crazy at this time, but we shall see.  Obama at least thinks they should be part of the new government!]
The organization must reject violence and recognize democratic goals if the U.S. is to be comfortable with it taking part in the government, the White House said. But by even setting conditions for the involvement of such nonsecular groups, the administration took a surprise step in the midst of the crisis that has enveloped Egypt for the last week.
The Jerusalem Post writes: After Camp David, all the Arab world sees that we are no longer a leader. Camp David made us a slave”
Like many at Tahir square on Tuesday night, 26-year-old Mohammed Salama of Cairo spoke of an eagerness for Egypt to shelve its nearly three decade old peace agreement with Israel, but insisted he does not want the country to go to war with Israel. In his hands he held a sign reading in Arabic “Netanyahu is worried about Mubarak”, which he said he wrote because “this is my country and my leader, I don’t want him to care about Israel, only about my country.”

An angry mob surrounded us and chased us into the car shouting that they hate America. They kicked in the car doors and broke our windshield as we drove away.
And keeping you abreast of other news, here is what  The Washington Examiner wrote: Last month, the Obama EPA began enforcing new rules regulating the greenhouse gas emissions from any new or expanded power plants.
This week, the EPA issued its first exemption, Environment & Energy News reports: [Here we go again!]
The Obama administration will spare a stalled power plant project in California from the newest federal limits on greenhouse gases and conventional air pollution, U.S. EPA says in a new court filing that marks a policy shift in the face of industry groups and Republicans accusing the agency of holding up construction of large industrial facilities.
According to a declaration by air chief Gina McCarthy, officials reviewed EPA policies and decided it was appropriate to "grandfather" projects such as the Avenal Power Center, a proposed 600-megawatt power plant in the San Joaquin Valley, so they are exempted from rules such as new air quality standards for smog-forming nitrogen dioxide (NO2).
There's something interesting about the Avenal Power Center:
The proposed Avenal Energy project will be a combined-cycle generating plant consisting of two natural gas-fired General Electric 7FA Gas Turbines with Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG) and one General Electric Steam Turbine.
[There have been suggestions that the House hold hearings on the GE/White House connections, even before this development.]

Coming to America - I BEG YOU TO JUST WATCH THIS VIDEO TODAY - ALL OF IT!; Severability; EPA Matters
Watching what has happened in Paris is very educational.  After watching, you will understand why our government is now cautioning Americans about travel to Europe, among other things.
Future postings will develop your understanding of the Muslim Brotherhood, Sharia Law and the dangers America faces.
Just how topical is the above subject? The Vancouver Sun reveals: Al-Qaida is on the verge of producing radioactive weapons after sourcing nuclear material and recruiting rogue scientists to build "dirty" bombs, according to leaked diplomatic documents.
A leading atomic regulator has privately warned that the world stands on the brink of a "nuclear 9/11".
Security briefings suggest that jihadi groups are also close to producing "workable and efficient" biological and chemical weapons that could kill thousands if unleashed in attacks on the West.
Security officials are warning the leaders of major Wall Street banks that al Qaeda terrorists in Yemen may be trying to plan attacks against those financial institutions or their leading executives. The latest "Inspire" issue also made reference to trying to use Anthrax in an attack, officials said.
The Wall St. Journal reveals: In his 78-page ruling, Judge Vinson wrote that the entire [health care] law must be voided because the individual insurance mandate is "not severable" from the rest of the law. Some laws contain what's known as a severability clause that says the rest of the law stands should a judge strike down a piece of it. But Democrats left it out. [They left it out so that the CBO numbers could show a cost savings, it has been explained.]
The judge said he didn't believe an injunction to stop the health overhaul was appropriate, because it is generally understood that the executive branch will obey a federal court. The government, however, doesn't believe the ruling requires it to stop implementing the overhaul.
Judge Vinson rejected that view. Under the Obama administration's logic, he wrote, "Congress could require that everyone above a certain income threshold buy a General Motors automobile—now partially government-owned—because those who do not buy GM cars (or those who buy foreign cars) are adversely impacting commerce and a taxpayer-subsidized business."
Judge Vinson ruled in favor of the Obama administration on a secondary part of the suit, saying that the law's expansion of the Medicaid federal-state insurance program for the poor doesn't violate the Constitution.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will force an up-or-down vote on the repeal of healthcare reform on Wednesday, testing the unity of Democrats who had promised the rollback would never see the light of day in their chamber.
McConnell (R-Ky.) told colleagues during a lunch meeting on Tuesday that he would offer healthcare reform repeal as an amendment to legislation on the Senate floor.
In a statement, McConnell said the repeal vote gives Democrats a chance to “reevaluate” their support for the controversial healthcare law, which a federal judge in Florida struck down as unconstitutional on Monday.

Just this week Michigan Country Lines  wrote: even if Congress grants a reprieve on greenhouse gas regulations, red tape from the other EPA rulemaking  efforts will trigger higher electric bills.  Co-ops expect EPA's rulemaking will eventually have the practical effect of eliminating coal as a power plant option. [As Barack Obama actually said, " So if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can.  It's just that it will bankrupt them because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that is being emitted."] Country Lines finished with: We are expecting a number of power plants to simply be retired.  The cost to comply....will simply be too much.
In a sharp challenge to the Obama administration, House Republicans intend to unveil legislation Wednesday to ban the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act and expect to advance the bill quickly, officials disclosed Tuesday night.
The officials said the bill would nullify all of the steps the EPA has taken to date on the issue, including a threshold finding that greenhouse gases constitute a danger to the public health and welfare.

It was erroneously reported that the Federal Court ruling for 26 states voiding Obamacare allowed the plan to go forward while the decision was on repeal.  Not so!  Therefore - if Obama and Democrats continue following any of the plan, it is THEY who will be acting against the law of the land!

Mistatement - It is Kagan, not Sotomayor.....

I misstated that Sotomayor might recuse herself, causing Obamacare to be supported by our Supreme Court.  It is Elena Kagen instead.
What are the odds that while serving as President Barack Obama's solicitor general, Elena Kagan never expressed her opinion about lawsuits that were filed challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare?

If Kagan did express her opinion, federal law requires the she be disqualified from those cases if she is confirmed as a justice and they come before the Supreme Court.
When she testified before the committee, Chairman Patrick Leahy, the Vermont Democrat, asked her when she would recuse herself. In response, Kagan did not cite 28 U.S.C. 455, and her answer to Leahy was somewhat narrower than her answer in the questionnaire. She would recuse herself, she indicated, from cases on which she had been the "counsel of record" and when she had "officially, formally approved something" in a case.
"If I gave advice about the government's litigating position or the content of a filing, then I would recuse myself from the case," Kagan said in her written responses to Sessions. "In my view, this level of participation in a case would warrant recusal."

Obamacare Null and Void?; "Revolution Now!" - in the USA; Authorities say 25 people were arrested for trespassing as hundreds protested outside a strategy session of conservative political donors at a resort near Palm Springs; ACLU in Bed with Department of Justice; Let's Stop Anchor Babies, Says AZ; The Ignorance of Senator Chuch Schumer; Egypt Blames Obama

On the left is Brian Calley, the new Lieutenant Governor of Michigan, as he addresses the State Convention.


In ruling against President Obama‘s health care law, federal Judge Roger Vinson used Mr. Obama‘s own position from the 2008 campaign against him, arguing that there are other ways to tackle health care short of requiring every American to purchase insurance.
“I note that in 2008, then-Senator Obama supported a health care reform proposal that did not include an individual mandate because he was at that time strongly opposed to the idea, stating that ‘if a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to buy a house,’” Judge Vinson wrote in a footnote toward the end of the 78-page ruling Monday.
Judge Vinson, a federal judge in the northern district of Florida, struck down the entire health care law as unconstitutional on Monday, though he is allowing the Obama administration to continue to implement and enforce it while the government appeals his ruling.
Do you recall Nancy Pelosi, when asked if the Constitution allows the federal government to force people to have health insurance. Her response?  "Are you serious?"
The photo on the left was taken when I spent nine hours on Capitol Hill the week of the health care vote - trying to visit 16 Democrat Representatives.  They were seeing no one that day. 
Ben Johnson quotes Vinson: "I must reluctantly conclude that Congress exceeded the bounds of its authority in passing the Act with the individual mandate…Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire act must be declared void."
Johnson continues: Vinson, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, made clear his opposition to the bill came from its gross violation of the Constitution. Vinson wrote, “If Congress can penalize a passive individual for failing to engage in commerce, the enumeration of powers in the Constitution would have been in vain.” He concluded, “Congress must operate within the bounds established by the Constitution.”
[As I see it, Justice Sonia Sotomayor may recuse herself  when the Supreme Court decides this issue, saying that she had influenced the law prior to being on the court.  If that happens, it's entirely possible for the Supremes to vote 4-4.  In that case, the law stands......]
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) [said on Jan. 7] that the “misguided" House Republicans “have to understand that the health care bill is not going to be repealed” and that they “should get a new lease on life and talk about something else.” (via CNS News)
Google, which purchased SayNow just last week, has hacked together a "speak-to-tweet service" for Egyptians who still have working telephones but who can't connect with Twitter because ISPs in the country were ordered to disconnect from the Internet.
The last remaining major ISP (Internet service provider), Noor Group, abruptly disconnected its service on Monday.
"[A]nyone can tweet by simply leaving a voicemail on one of these international phone numbers ... and the service will instantly tweet the message using the hashtag #egypt," Google said in a blog posting. "No Internet connection is required."
Stop The ACLU writes: Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today announced that it has received documents from the Department of Justice (DOJ) that show DOJ worked hand-in-hand with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in mounting their respective legal challenges to SB 1070, Arizona’s get-tough illegal immigration law. The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed on June 17, 2010, include email exchanges between DOJ officials and ACLU staff.
Newsbusters reports of Chuck Schumer's comments: They [Republicans] are getting wary because of the large debt we have, which we have to get down, but if they feel that people are willing to shut down the government, you could risk the credit markets really losing some confidence in the United States Treasury, and that could create a deeper recession than we had over the last several years -- God forbid, even a depression.
So I would urge my Republican colleagues, no matter how strongly they feel -- you know, we have three branches of government. We have a House. We have a Senate. We have a president. And all three of us are going to have to come together and give some, but it is playing with fire to risk the shutting down of the government, just as it is playing with fire to risk not paying the debt ceiling. [I ask you - should ANY Representative, Senator or President be so ignorant to say these words?  Or is it Schumer's way of dismissing the Judiciary?  He puts Palin's misfires to shame.]
Who is the Muslim Brotherhood, vying for control in Egypt?  Listing some of its leaders
ELBARADEI:You know, the Muslim Brotherhood has nothing to do with the Iranian model, has nothing to do with extremism, as we have seen it in Afghanistan and other places.  The Muslim Brotherhood is a religiously conservative group.  They are a minority in Egypt.  They are not a majority of the Egyptian people, but they have a lot of credibility because all the other liberal parties have been smothered for 30 years.


If Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak is toppled, Israel will lose one of its very few friends in a hostile neighborhood and President Barack Obama will bear a large share of the blame, Israeli pundits said on Monday.


Breitbart writes: Th e State Department Monday issued an updated warning on the "continuing threat of terrorist actions" for US citizens worldwide, and a second advisory cautioning travel to Britain. "Current information suggests that Al-Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks against US interests in multiple regions, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East," said the advisory, which updates the last Worldwide Caution post from August 2010.
The State Department warned that militant groups could target areas where US citizens may gather in large numbers, such as sporting events, hotels, or places of worship.
Reuters reports: Iran said on Monday it hopes mass anti-government protests in Egypt will lead to the emergence of a more Islamic Middle East that will stand up to its enemies, Israel and the United States.
"A shift of power in Egypt from a U.S.-linked government to an Islamist regime will strengthen Iran," said political analyst Ahmad Ziaie. "The balance will switch in favour of Iran."
Mehmanparast taunted Washington for its mixed signals about support for Mubarak, seen as a vital U.S. ally in the region.

Google reports: Iran said on Tuesday the uprising in Egypt will help create an Islamic Middle East but accused US officials of interfering in the "freedom seeking" movement which has rocked the Arab nation. "With the knowledge that I have of the great revolutionary and history making people of Egypt, I am sure they will play their role in creating an Islamic Middle East for all freedom, justice and independence seekers," Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi (snip) "Unfortunately we are witnessing the direct interference .... of some American officials in the developments in Egypt,"

The Michigan Republican State Convention; Our "Citizen of the World" President; World Papers Blame Obama for Unrest in Middle East

At the Michigan Republican State Convention,  Bobby Schostak was elected State Chairman of  the Republican Party. Victor Diaz, pictured on the upper left, is the new Coalitions Vice-chairman who claims an 80% success rate in convincing homeowners to display yard signs; Eileen McNeil is outreach vice-chair; Steven Kuivenhoven is grassroots vice-chairman; Linda Lee Tarver is ethnic vice-chair; Jon Nunn is administrative vice-chair; and Sarah Ledford is the youth vice-chair whose enthusiasm and energy is amazing. Their dedication and knowledge will light the way to victory in 2012!  Being a voting Delegate was for me educational and important.  I was proud to be part of those who are proactive in selecting candidates and assuring their victory.  Precinct Delegates are the unspoken ones who make enormously important decisions for the party - grassroots, indeed.  One year ago, I was totally unaware that precinct delegates existed, much less that they are so influential.  Each day this week I will bring you some photos from the convention, a gathering of  thousands.     

We appreciated the words of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson and Attorney General Bill Schuette, all newly elected.  Bill Schuette has already supported the Asian Carp lawsuit, the Repeal Obamacare lawsuit, and is defending Arizona's right to enforce their state's Immigration law. Snyder is moving to replace the unpopular Michigan Business Tax and cut business taxes overall. What an impressive start!        ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 On another subject, that of our "Citizen of the World" President:                   
[Marc Faber, from Zurich, Switzerland, an investment guru and author of Gloom, Boom and Doom Report was recently interviewed on his opinion of Barack Obama.  I bring you his thoughts, as Obama deems himself to be a citizen of the world, and all were to love him and America if he were only President.  Mr. Faber, on the UTube video says]:
"I think he’s done a horrible job and I think that will continue, I think he is basically a dishonest person, intellectually dishonest, and change, nothing has changed."
But, but, but begs the host, to be fair, how is he compared relative to other politicians?
"Some politicians are more honest than others. I don’t think that I have a very high regard for politicians, I have a high regard for businessmen and for people who work, and not for people who abuse the system continuously. And in comparison to other politicians, I think he came in on a platform as a president that would want to change the government in Washington, and actually he’s made it worse."
The anchorette breaks in, but to be fair, he came in at a tough time, maybe he will change the system…
"You are an optimist. Keep on dreaming. We foreigners, we just laugh. we just laugh at someone like Mr. Obama."
What should he be doing? Bush wasn’t so great either…
"I was very critical of Mr. Bush, but at least he had one line and he stuck to that line, and at least he set out to do a thing and he was relatively straight on that thing that he did. He may have been wrong, and I criticized him very frequently, but at least he didn’t change his mind continuously, and didn’t prostitute himself."
APNews writes, out of Aman, Jordan: The leader of Jordan's powerful Muslim Brotherhood warned Saturday that unrest in Egypt will spread across the Mideast and Arabs will topple leaders allied with the United States.
Saeed said Arabs have grown disgruntled with U.S. domination of their oil wealth, military occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and its support for "totalitarian" leaders in the region.
"The Americans and (President Barack) Obama must be losing sleep over the popular revolt in Egypt," he said. "Now, Obama must understand that the people have woken up and are ready to unseat the tyrant leaders who remained in power because of U.S. backing."
Saeed did not specifically name King Abdullah. But he said Jordan's prime minister "must draw lessons from Tunisia and Egypt and must swiftly implement political reforms."
"We tell the Americans 'enough is enough'," he said.
From the NY Post: But Hope and Change becomes a noxious gas when you are talking about a popular uprising by freedom fighters shaking loose the iron grip of a 30-year dictatorship.
At least that is how President Obama sees it.
From the moment he took office, Obama has misread the situation in Egypt and sided with the convenience
of tyranny over the untidiness of freedom.
Obama says he has repeatedly urged Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to reform, but those words are no match for the cover the Obama administration has offered the Mubarak regime.
Just three months into the new administration, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton visited Egypt and was asked whether Mubarak's well-documented and violent disregard for human rights made him unwelcome at the White House.
"It is not in any way connected," she replied. "I really consider President and Mrs. Mubarak to be friends of my family. So I hope to see him often here in Egypt and in the United States."

The UK Telegraph writes that America has backed the rebel leaders: 
The American Embassy in Cairo helped a young dissident attend a US-sponsored summit for activists in New York, while working to keep his identity secret from Egyptian state police.
On his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist told US diplomats that an alliance of opposition groups had drawn up a plan to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic government in 2011.
Big Government writes: In stark, bitter contrast to his indifference to the popular Iranian uprising in the summer of 2009, Barack Obama has almost immediately engaged in events on the ground in Egypt, and it’s not good. Obama took no such action with Iran — a jihadist terrorist state agitating in countries all over the world. That was an historic missed opportunity.
In 2009, his silence about the brutal, murderous putdown of its people by the Iranian mullahcracy amount to his tacit support of that putdown, and spoke volumes. Obama became part of the problem, not part of the solution. He gave religious barbarism the free hand. In response, Iranian protestors had a direct message for America’s president: “You’re Either With Us or With Them.”
And since then also, Obama’s most consistent response to Iran (as well as to North Korea’s hostile moves) has been to ignore them and hope that proven evildoers will behave themselves. Wrong. The good cop is off the beat.
Obama failed, and the consequences of his failure have begun to be made manifest now in Egypt. I cannot understate the importance of Egypt to American interests and Israeli security. Egypt is arguably the second-most important country to the US in the region. Mubarak has been a U.S. ally for decades. We send three billion dollars a year to Egypt. And Egypt made a peace deal with Israel.
But knowing Obama, he will throw another ally under the bus.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ writes: Jimmy Carter will go down in American history as "the president who lost Iran," which during his term went from being a major strategic ally of the United States to being the revolutionary Islamic Republic. Barack Obama will be remembered as the president who "lost" Turkey, Lebanon and Egypt, and during whose tenure America's alliances in the Middle East crumbled.
The superficial circumstances are similar. In both cases, a United States in financial crisis and after failed wars loses global influence under a leftist president whose good intentions are interpreted abroad as expressions of weakness. The results are reflected in the fall of regimes that were dependent on their relationship with Washington for survival, or in a change in their orientation, as with Ankara.
America's general weakness clearly affects its friends. But unlike Carter, who preached human rights even when it hurt allies, Obama sat on the fence and exercised caution. He neither embraced despised leaders nor evangelized for political freedom, for fear of undermining stability.
Dailymail in the UK writes: A man has been charged with making a terrorist threat and carrying explosives after targeting one of the biggest mosques in the U.S.
Roger Stockham, 63, was arrested last week outside the Islamic Centre of America in Dearborn, Michigan as mourners gathered inside for a funeral.
