Abortion On Demand For The Fourth Trimester

It is now official policy of MSNBC to promote the implementation of postpartum or 4th trimester abortion.  This call for Infanticide is being led by that paragon of motherhood, Melissa Harris-Perry.
Today Natural News denounces Melissa Harris-Perry, the latest talking head "death worshipper" to publicly imply that she supports the murder of living, breathing newborn children. According to Harris-Perry, life begins when the parents feel like life begins. And together with some twisted new "ethics" arguments from the radical left, this can include months or years after a child is born.

That's why I need to premise this article with a disclaimer: This article is not about abortion. It's about the murder of children after they are born. Because once a child is born alive, terminating that life is no longer a "choice" … it's murder by every legal and moral standard. Because while abortion friends and foes can argue about when life begins in the womb, no one disagrees that a child born alive is, well, ALIVE… do they?

Indeed, they do. MSNBC talking head Melissa Harris-Perry insists that life only begins when the parents have a "feeling" that it begins. "When does life begin? I submit the answer depends an awful lot on the feeling of the parents. A powerful feeling -- but not science," Harris-Perry said to nationwide astonishment on her July 21 MSNBC show.

And in one stroke, she simultaneously condones the murder of newborn infants (i.e. "post-birth abortion") while attacking the science of biology which unambiguously states that a living, breathing infant with a heartbeat and brain function is alive, not dead.

But don't tell that to the radical abortion whackos. Far beyond arguing for the "right" to abort a baby in the first or second trimester, many abortion advocates who run in the same circles as Melissa Harris-Perry are now publicly arguing that it is okay for parents to kill their children up to age three. This is now being promoted as a "post-birth abortion."

It was also called a "fourth trimester abortion" by a clever pollster who recently took to the streets of George Mason University to find out if summertime college students would sign a petition legalizing fourth-trimester abortions. Nearly all who were asked to sign the petition did so! One of the college students even asked whether the procedure would "cause harm to the child."

"Well the child wouldn't be there anymore," responded the pollster, after which the college student then proceeded to sign the petition.

And yes, this is how incredibly stupid many of today's college students really are. Then again, I remember a guy back in college who walked in on a group of us watching a football game and asked, "How many quarters are there in a football game?" His lack of mathematical prowess would have made him a ripe target for the "fourth trimester abortion" gimmick, I'll bet.

Murdering live babies under the label of "abortion"

Let's be clear about where all this is headed. This is not about arguing over a woman's right to have a first- or second-trimester abortion. This isn't even a debate about a third-trimester abortion, the kind of abortion that was recently outlawed in Texas, much to the despair of late-term abortion advocates across the country, some of whom actually chanted "Hail Satan" in unison at the Austin abortion rally.

This is really about the zealous desire of the radical left to legalize the "aborting" of babies after they are born alive so that parents can have the legal right to kill living babies they suddenly decide they don't want to raise.

Getting back to Harris-Perry, according to her radical brand of death culture ideology, a parent can "decide" that a baby born alive isn't really alive yet. That parent can wait to see whether the baby is well-behaved, or cute, or has the right skin color, or whatever, before deciding whether to keep it or kill it. If such an ideology were fronted by someone like George Bush, it would be wildly derided as barbaric and anti-human, but because the idea of murdering newborn babies is being pushed by liberals, it is met with silence instead of outrage.

"When a pregnancy is wanted . . . It is easy to think of the bump as a baby," says Melissa Harris-Perry, implying that when a pregnancy is not wanted, that bump isn't a baby at all. Somehow it's just a mass of dead tissue that you can dispose of at will. The fact that the "bump" results in a live childbirth is never admitted by people like Harris-Perry. The baby isn't "alive" until you decide it is!

Recently, two black parents were shocked to find that the woman gave birth to a white baby. According to Melissa Harris-Perry, these two black parents can now "decide" their white baby isn't alive at all and therefore commit infanticide that's rephrased as a "post-birth abortion."

This is the position embraced by the radical left: babies are not humans, and it is okay to murder them even up to age three.

Newborn babies have no "moral right to life"

A study published in the Journal of Medical Ethics argues that newborn babies have no Alberto Giubilini, from The University of Milan, and Francesca Minerva, a post-doctoral fellow at The University of Melbourne's Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics, are heroes of the radical left. They argue that infanticide should be legal but renamed "post-birth abortion."
"moral right to life," and are thus not actually "persons."

They insist that newborn babies have no right to life and that parents can simply "decide" to kill their children for all sorts of reasons, including feeling like the child will be too expensive to raise, or suddenly discovering the fact that newborn babies cry a lot.

"Rather than being actual persons, newborns were potential persons," write the study authors. They don't really count as human beings until the parents decide they do.

This appears to be the same argument being made by MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry, who expressed extreme outrage over the murder of Trayvon Martin but seems to openly embrace the murder of countless black infants who are born alive and healthy but are "unwanted" by their parents. Life begins based "on the feeling of the parents," she submits. So it's utterly unscientific and subject to (liberal) interpretation, which in this case seems to favor infanticide and even eugenics. (By far most aborted babies in America are Black and Hispanic. If post-birth abortion is openly embraced, most of the murdered infants will also be Black and Hispanic.)

And so the violent contradiction of radical leftist ideology is exposed in the raw: Liberals claim to support "equality" but then they consider living babies to be "non-persons." Liberals claim to support racial minorities, yet they endorse and even encourage the murder of the young babies of their own minority race. Liberals claim that all life is sacred, but their glaring exception is the life of a newborn child, which should be the most sacred of all but is instead considered worthless.

When it comes to taking a life, pro-abortion liberals are all for it. But when it comes to defending your life with a legal firearm, liberals are aggressively opposed to it.

So let me get this straight: Murder is okay but self defense is evil?

Or better yet, if Trayvon Martin had been an "unwanted" newborn just six months old, would his murder have been celebrated by the left instead of mourned? Help me figure this out, please, because I'm trying to understand at what age, exactly, the murder of a young black baby invokes racially-charged marches across the nation vs. receiving applause from people like Melissa Harris-Perry. Apparently if Trayvon Martin had been murdered by his own parents 16 years earlier, that would have been perfectly acceptable to these people.

Melissa Harris-Perry is a modern-day holocaust denier

At the risk of being accused of making sense, let me state the obvious here: People like Melissa Harris-Perry are the new holocaust deniers. They are anti-human agenda pushers who literally inspire others to murder their own children.

I don't know about you, but I cannot accept, as a spiritual human being and a responsible member of society, the legalization of the murder of babies who are born alive and breathing. Yet that is precisely what the radical left is pushing for: the "right" to murder their own children up to the age of three. (Oh yeah, they're also pushing for the "right" to kill elderly people, but that's another article altogether.)

Such an agenda is despicable, if not downright demonic. And the fact that people like Harris-Perry spew this death cult violence on MSNBC -- the propaganda branch of the White House -- only further proves that MSNBC has lost all credibility and is now being run as a Hitler-style holocaust support network that tolerates hosts who effectively endorse the mass murder of babies all across America.

There is evil in this nation, and wicked women like Harris-Perry are steeped in it. Mainstream media networks like MSNBC thrive on it, and the destructive forces that currently occupy the White House gain power from it. Everywhere you turn, there are efforts under way to sow racial hatred, murder innocent babies, poison the food supply, chemically lobotomize children with vaccines and enslave the masses medically and economically.

I hereby denounce this wickedness, on the record, as a statement of principle for the world to witness. I will forever oppose these merchants of death and their sick, demented eugenics schemes. I will fight to protect the lives of the innocent for as long as I am alive, even if those innocent lives include two-day-old black babies who have just been brought into this world through the miracle of gestation and childbirth. I call for all Natural News readers and supporters to take steps each and every day to resist evil and overcome the forces of death and destruction that now dominate our society through witch-hearted minions like Melissa Harris-Perry, a traitor to humanity and an endorser of the murder of children.

This woman should be immediately blackballed by the entire media and yanked off the air to return to her own little world of tampon earrings and dead newborns. Or maybe she will murder her own baby in the near future and feature it on the set of MSNBC in a special celebration broadcast complete with pentagrams etched on the desk and a chorus of hooded Satan worshippers drinking the blood of the dead fetus while Melissa Harris-Perry reads the names of sponsors. Sadly, it would probably get record ratings and be heralded by the death culture media as "pioneering television." And it would most certainly be cheered by the radical left as a "choice."

Melissa Harris-Perry is a the best example of liberal thinking in this nation.  I expect ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN to all jump onto this bandwagon and promote Postpartum Abortion on demand.

While MSNBC will never fire Melissa Harris-Perry, we can discover their advertisers, write to both the Network and the Advertisers calling for a nation-wide boycott until she is fired.

I wonder if we have enough power to do it?  Shall we try?

Muslim Persecution of Christians: May, 2013

A man accused of helping a Saudi woman convert to Christianity was sentenced to six years in prison and 300 lashes. The daughter was also sentenced to six years and 300 lashes, causing her to flee, reportedly to Sweden, where authorities are trying to find her and extradite her back to Saudi Arabia.
Nigeria continues to be the most dangerous nation for Christians—where more Christians have been killed last year than all around the Muslim world combined. In one instance, Boko Haram Muslim militants stormed the home of a Pentecostal pastor and secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, and opened fire on him, instantly murdering him.

Separately, other Boko Haram gunmen killed 14 Christians, including the cousin and two nephews of the Rev. Moses Thliza, head of a Christian organization dedicated to preventing AIDS and caring for AIDS patients and orphans: Said Thliza: "My cousin, Bulus [Paul] Buba, was dragged out at gunpoint from his house by the Boko Haram members. They collected his car keys, demanded money and asked him three times to renounce his Christian faith, and three times he declined to do so [prompting them to execute him]. The attackers met three guards on duty, killed two of them by cutting their necks with knives, and then proceeded to take the third guard, Amtagu Samiyu, at gunpoint to lead them to where the keys of the deputy governor's house is."

As for some Christians observing a wake two kilometers away, Boko Haram Muslims asked to know what was going on there, and when they learned that people were saying prayers for an elderly Christian woman who had died, they charged in and shot into the crowd. "The attackers went there and shot indiscriminately at the worshippers, killing eight Christians—two women and six elderly men," said Thliza. "In all, we buried 14 Christians. Some were injured and taken to the hospital." Despite all this, when the Nigerian government tried militarily to confront and neutralize Boko Haram, the Obama administration criticized it, warning it not to violate the "human rights" of the Islamic terrorists.

Categorized by theme, the rest of May's roundup of Muslim persecution of Christians around the world includes (but is not limited to) the following accounts, listed by theme and in country alphabetical order, not necessarily according to severity:

Church Attacks
Bosnia: The Serbian Orthodox church of Saint Sava in Sarajevo, where Muslims make up approximately half of the population, was "desecrated" and six of its windows panes broken. The unidentified vandals wrote "Allah" in dark paint twice on the church wall. A month earlier, unidentified persons tried to set the church on fire.

Central African Republic: According to the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace, since an Islamic rebel leader proclaimed himself president, the situation for Christians, has "deeply worsened." The organization warns against "the evil intentions for the programmed and planned desecration and destruction of religious Christian buildings, and in particular the Catholic and Protestant churches…. All over the country the Catholic Church has paid a high price." Several dioceses have been seriously damaged and plundered, and priests and nuns attacked (more information below, under "Dhimmitude.")

Egypt: Two Coptic Christian churches were attacked, one in Alexandria, the other in Upper Egypt. St. Mary in Alexandria was attacked by Molotov cocktails and bricks, causing the gate to burn and the stained glass windows to shatter. One thousand Christians tried to defend the church against 20,000 Muslims screaming "Allahu Akbar" ["Allah is Greater"]. One Copt was killed and several injured. In the village of Menbal in Upper Egypt, after "Muslim youths" harassed Christian girls—including hurling bags of urine at them—and Coptic men came to their rescue, another Muslim mob stormed the village church of Prince Tadros el-Mashreki. They hurled stones and broke everything inside the church, including doors and windows. The mob then went along the streets looting and destroying all Coptic-owned businesses and pharmacies and torching cars. Any Copt met by the mob in the street was beaten.

Iran: Because it refused to stop using the national Persian language during its services—which makes the Gospel intelligible to all Iranian Muslims, some of whom converted—the Central Assemblies of God Church in Tehran was raided by security services during a prayer meeting; its pastor taken to an unknown location, and the church was searched and its books, documents and equipment seized. Security agents posted a sign stating that the church was now closed. One local source said, "They constantly threaten the church leaders and their families with imprisonment, unexplained accidents, kidnapping and even with execution. We cannot go on like this." A number of its members have already been killed and its activities greatly restricted over the last few years.

Libya: The Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception in Benghazi was bombed. In the words of the Apostolic Vicar of Tripoli, "They put a bomb at the entrance of the corridor leading to the courtyard where there is the door of the church. The church, therefore, was not touched directly, but the attack is not a positive sign. The Church in Libya is suffering. In Benghazi the Coptic Church was hit, its chaplain was killed and now the Catholic Church. As I reported on other occasions, in Cyrenaica different religious women's institutes have been forced to close their doors, in Tobruk, Derna, Beida, Barce, as well as in Benghazi. The nuns who were forced to leave, served the population with generosity."

Syria: A violent explosion destroyed the church and convent of the Capuchin Franciscan Friars in Deir Ezzor. According to Fr. Haddad of the region, "It was the only church in Deir Ezzor [that] so far still remained almost untouched." It is not clear how it was destroyed, but some say a car bomb was placed next to the church. Fr. Haddad lamented that, as in other regions, "there are no more Christians" left in Ezzor, due to "all this hate and desecration."

Tanzania: During a service to mark its official opening, a new church in a predominantly Christian suburb was bombed, killing at least five people and wounding some 60. According to a local source, "This was… a well-planned attack. Even before it, the threat was given and we still have many threats. Pray for us, and that God will overcome all these in Jesus' name." He added that, "radical camps in the country were teaching young Muslims that Christians must be killed or live as second-class citizens," or dhimmis. Among those arrested, four were Saudi Arabian nationals. The bombing follows the slaying of two church leaders in February, and the shooting in the face of a third on Christmas Day. In October, several church buildings were torched and vandalized.

Apostasy, Blasphemy, Proselytism
Egypt: Twenty-four-year-old Demiana Ebeid Abdelnour, a social studies teacher, was fired and arrested for comparing the late Coptic Pope Shenouda to Islam's prophet Muhammad, "as well as putting her hand on her neck or her stomach every time she mentioned [Islam's prophet] Muhammad," which was interpreted by some students under 10-years-old as disgust. She would be the last Coptic Christian victim to be arrested or imprisoned in a "defamation of Islam" spree that began under now ousted President Morsi. One Coptic activist wondered, Why is defamation of religion a one-way street, only for the benefit of the Muslims, while Christianity is defamed every day?" He added that Sheikh Abu Islam, who tore and burned the Holy Bible, has not been detained.

Iran: Vahid Hakkani, a Christian prisoner in Shiraz, is suffering from internal digestive bleeding. Although doctors have diagnosed his condition as critical, and have recommended urgent surgery, prison officials have not allowed his transfer to any hospital. Earlier, Hakkani and other Christians were gathered for worship in a house-church when they were arrested "for participating in house-church services, evangelizing and promoting Christianity, having contact with foreign Christian ministries, propagating against the regime and disturbing national security."

Kashmir: Two Christians accused of carrying out "acts of proselytism," for distributing pamphlets and publications with biblical passages to some young Muslims, were savagely beaten by a mob, and later arrested by police, "who rescued them from a secure lynching." Separately, the "United Jihad Council" said that Christian missionaries in Kashmir are "highly reprehensible" and have a "hidden agenda [to] exploit the poor and the needy, offering them economic aid to convert them to Christianity." He noted that "Islam is the religion of peace and harmony, and that protects minorities. However, anti-Islam activities [evangelization] cannot be tolerated." The United Jihad Council accordingly calls on all Christian missionaries "immediately to leave the valley of Kashmir," warning, "If not, they will suffer the consequences."

Kazakhstan: Despite the nation's president recently boasting that, "Kazakhstan is an example to the world of equal rights and freedoms for all citizens" and that, "religious freedom is fully secured" in the country, the Barnabas Fund states that the government "has instructed people to report any individuals who speak about their faith with others in public to the police," as "talking about one's faith with others constitutes missionary activity, which requires personal registration… Compulsory prior censorship of all printed and imported religious literature is another way in which the state controls Christian activity. Confiscation of religious books appears to be increasing, with Christians amongst those most likely to be targeted."

Morocco: A fatwa by the government's top Islam authority, partially based on the teachings of Islam's prophet Muhammad, calls for the execution of those Muslims who leave Islam, causing many Christian converts to live in fear. Lamented one Christian: "The fatwa showed us that our country is still living in the old centuries—no freedom, no democracy. Unfortunately, we feel that we aren't protected. We can be arrested or now even killed any time and everywhere. The majority of the Christian Moroccan leaders have the same feeling. We are more followed now by the secret police than before. Only the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ gives us courage and peace."

Saudi Arabia: A Christian Lebanese man, accused of helping a Saudi women convert to Christianity, was sentenced to six years in prison and 300 lashes. Even so, the father of the woman claims the punishment is not sufficient. The daughter was also sentenced to six years and 300 lashes, causing her to flee, reportedly to Sweden, where authorities are trying to find her and extradite her back to the Saudi Arabia. Another man, a Saudi national who reportedly forged a travel document to help the woman flee, was sentenced to two years in jail and 200 lashes.

[General Abuse of Non-Muslims as Third-Class "Citizens," or Dhimmis]
Central African Republic: Christians are being terrorized, killed, and plundered by Islamic militants, who seized control of the country in March, even as international media and government ignore the crisis. In what one pastor is calling "a reign of terror," Muslims are tying up, beating and forcing Christians to pay money to save their lives. Many have been killed or wounded. The Barnabas Fund states that "rebels have a hit list of pastors and other Christian workers, and that places of worship are being attacked. Christian property is being looted. In one incident towards the end of last month, Seleka [Islamic] troops seized all the collection money given at a gathering of church leaders. Many Christians have fled their homes to the countryside and are too fearful to return. More than 200,000 people are internally displaced, while 49,000 refugees have been registered in neighbouring countries." On 10 May, Human Rights Watch released a report citing "grave violations" committed by the Seleka rebels against civilians, including pillage, summary executions, rape and torture. One pastor of a besieged church was shot dead when he went out holding a Bible aloft as a sign of peace.

Egypt: Mohamed Abu Samra, secretary-general of the Islamic Jihad Party, asserted that "it is permissible to kill some Christians today," justifying it by adding "Those who came out with weapons, their blood is allowed for us [to spill], as a fighter is not considered dhimmi." In Islamic law, a dhimmi is a non-Muslim who is permitted to exist provided he pays monetary tribute and lives as a submissive, lowly subject, according to Koran 9:29. Those Coptic Christian activists who vocally called for the removal of former Islamist president Morsi were not doing that, thereby becoming fair game for killing.

Indonesia: After an earlier Christmas Eve attack, during which members of Filadelfia Batak Christian Protestant Church were pelted with rotten eggs, dung and plastic bags full of urine, the pastor was attempting to leave the scene with his wife when Abdul Aziz, the leader of the mob who had earlier threatened to kill him, moved to attack him. Because the pastor stopped the Muslim agitator's blow with his hand to protect his wife and himself, he is now facing assault charges. Islamic law, based on the "Conditions of Omar," forbids Christians from raising their hands to Muslims, even in self-defense. The church has been meeting outside and in homes since its building was sealed off by authorities to appease Islamists in 2010—despite its having met all conditions for a building permit, as well as a Supreme Court ruling that a permit should be granted.

Pakistan: Over the course of five days, a Muslim mob tortured Javaid Anjum, a teenaged Christian student to death, because he dared drink water from the tap of an Islamic seminary while on a long journey to visit his grandfather. When Muslims discovered he was Christian, they forced him into the seminary, where they tried to force him to renounce Christianity and convert to Islam. When he refused, for five days, Muslim seminary students electrocuted him, broke his arm, and pulled out his fingernails. The electric shocks caused his kidneys to fail and he eventually died.

About this Series

Because the persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is on its way to reaching pandemic proportions, "Muslim Persecution of Christians" was developed to collate some—by no means all—of the instances of persecution that surface each month. It serves two purposes:
  1. To document that which the mainstream media does not: the habitual, if not chronic, Muslim persecution of Christians.
  2. To show that such persecution is not "random," but systematic and interrelated—that it is rooted in a worldview inspired by Sharia.
Accordingly, whatever the anecdote of persecution, it typically fits under a specific theme, including hatred for churches and other Christian symbols; sexual abuse of Christian women; forced conversions to Islam; apostasy and blasphemy laws that criminalize and punish with death those who "offend" Islam; theft and plunder in lieu of jizya (financial tribute expected from non-Muslims); overall expectations for Christians to behave like dhimmis, or second-class, "tolerated" citizens; and simple violence and murder. Sometimes it is a combination.

Because these accounts of persecution span different ethnicities, languages, and locales—from Morocco in the West, to India in the East, and throughout the West wherever there are Muslims—it should be clear that one thing alone binds them: Islam—whether the strict application of Islamic Sharia law, or the supremacist culture born of it.

Wednesday's Hero: Maj. William Edward Adams

U.S. Army

The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pride in presenting the Medal of Honor (Posthumously) to Major William Edward Adams, United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving with A/227 Assault Helicopter Company, 52d Aviation Battalion, 17th Aviation Group, 1st Aviation Brigade, in action against enemy aggressor forces at Kontum Province, Republic of Vietnam, on 25 May 1971. On that date, Major Adams volunteered to fly a lightly armed helicopter in an attempt to evacuate three seriously wounded soldiers from a small fire base which was under attack by a large enemy force. He made the decision with full knowledge that numerous anti-aircraft weapons were positioned around the base and that the clear weather would afford the enemy gunners unobstructed view of all routes into the base. As he approached the base, the enemy gunners opened fire with heavy machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and small arms. Undaunted by the fusillade, he continued his approach determined to accomplish the mission. Displaying tremendous courage under fire, he calmly directed the attacks of supporting gunships while maintaining absolute control of the helicopter he was flying. He landed the aircraft at the fire base despite the ever-increasing enemy fire and calmly waited until the wounded soldiers were placed on board. As his aircraft departed from the fire base, it was struck and seriously damaged by enemy anti-aircraft fire and began descending. Flying with exceptional skill, he immediately regained control of the crippled aircraft and attempted a controlled landing. Despite his valiant efforts, the helicopter exploded, overturned, and plummeted to earth amid the hail of enemy fire. Major Adams' conspicuous gallantry, intrepidity, and humanitarian regard for his fellow man were in keeping with the most cherished traditions of the military service and reflected utmost credit on him and the United States Army.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.

Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don't Know Where To Look.

Hundreds of Muslims Sitting in Jails on Arizona Border - From Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Egypt

Crossing our southern border, they come from Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan and Yemen. Hundreds are sitting in a jail in Douglas, Arizona...and many are now Spanish speakers, blending in with Mexicans. How many did we miss, and what happens to them now? Is their destiny to be a DREAMer? Don't laugh, It's possible.

911 Report Believes Jihadis Are Crossing U.S. Mexico Border 

Muslims Crossing U.S. Southern Border[/caption] Government reports you see in the video below say Hezbollah has crossed our border with Mexico. The 911 Commission report believes drug cartels will help these Muslim aliens smuggle weapons into the U.S. Among the paraphernalia confiscated, a jacket with a badge in Arabic reading "Martyr...Way to Eternal Life" (if that doesn't show the difference between the Judeo-Christian God and the god of Islam, what does?). A 20-year veteran of the Border Patrol says "the American public has been kept in the dark...." He also said for every one caught, ten are missed. In April 2013 Tucson Local 2544 Border Patrol website said they catch less than half of those pouring in.

More Textbook Controversy

We have reported before here on various school textbooks that our children are reading that give a misleading portrait of Islam. Now there is another textbook controversy brewing in Florida over Prentice's World History. Todd Starnes in Townhall has the report.

In this book, which I perused online, no mention is made of any Islamic war or fighting  until after the death of the Prophet Mohammad. That is misleading if not completely inaccurate.  Schoolchildren in the Islamic world are not misled about those things. Why should children here be misled? As I have said before, if schools cannot teach true history to pupils when these sensitive subjects come up, it is better to stay away from religion altogether. False history has no place in our schools.

Guess Who Will Be The Next Secretary Of Homeland Security?

There have been many names tossed about since Janet Napolitano has announced her resignation.  But today it is announced that a member of Congress will probably get the nod.  A minority member of the House Committee on Homeland Security.  A person who would chair the committee if the Democrats were in control of the House.  A person who's qualification are unique.  Yes the next Secretary of Homeland Security will be:  Sheila Jackson-Lee.
Just two weeks after Janet Napolitano announced her resignation as Secretary of Homeland Security, the Congressional Black Caucus has suggested Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston fill her spot.

A letter dated July 25 and signed by Rep. Marcia Fudge, Ohio Democrat and caucus chairwoman, urges President Obama to consider Miss Jackson Lee for the position, calling the Democrat a “voice of reason” that the agency could stand to gain, the Houston Chronicle reported.

“Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the letter reads.

Mrs. Jackson Lee currently serves as a ranking member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, a position that the caucus said she “stands as a strong and honest ‘voice of reason.’”

Ah yes. Our dear friend Sheila Jackson-Lee. The woman who doesn't have 2 working brain cells to rub together. Sheila Jackson-Lee who gave us these wonderful gems of her wisdom and knowledge:

Can you imagine the corruption, the incompetence that would arise in the Department of Homeland Security?  The number of terror attacks committed by Muslims would soar, while Veterans and Tea Party members would be arrested for their thoughts.  Oh yes!  Under a Secretary Jackson-Lee, President Obama's destruction of the United States would be complete.

Common Core Rotten to the Core: Scathing Analysis from American Principles Project

Little by little the stealth behind Common Core Initiative Standards (CCIS) is coming to light. Last month, in Naive, Deceived, Not Paying Attention? Controlling Your Child's Mind I said you, as a parent, cannot escape the Obama administration's Common Core through private schooling or homeschooling your children. Does creating an "Office of Non-Public Schools" that is publicly funded make sense to you? There's a big bite out of your child's learning coming your way. This program is not known as "Exceptional Core," or "High-Achieving Core." Think of "Common Core" as "Ordinary Core," or "Less Than Exceptional Core," or Pass Everyone Core."

 Eaten Apple.
Common Core eliminates local control over K-12 curriculum in math and English, instead imposing a one-size-fits-all, top-down curriculum that will also apply to private schools and homeschoolers. Source: Townhall
Missouri Education Watchdog has been vigilantly reporting on Common Core. She has received information from an Alabama parent and a video recorded live of the Alabama Department of Education Private School Licensure meeting with "private, church, and home school representatives."

One shocking lesson from this Alabama video is, if you or your school do not/does not register with Alabama's new Office of Non-Public Schools (funded publicly), your child will be "unable to attend a two or four year college/university."

● A School operated by a community educational organization, or group of parents that is organized as a non-profit educational corporation 
● A private school in operation and nationally accredited continuously since July 1, 1984
A question I have, and one that Missouri Education Watchdog is working on, is how many private or home-schoolers across the country do not meet the three above-mentioned schooling that will be exempt in Alabama. If you have any feed back on this, please leave it in comments or go to Missouri Education Watchdog and do the same.
● Differences in Non-Public Entities Private TutorCourses must be taught 
✓ By persons holding valid AL teaching certificate in branches of study taught 
✓ Three (3) hours/day for 140 days per calendar year 
✓ Use English language for instruction 
✓ Report to the local superintendent of education 
✓ May or may not be accepted by colleges, universities, public or non-public schools

The Townhall article linked above refers to a study by the Pioneer Institute - American Principles Project, titled Controlling Education From the Top - Why Common Core is Bad for America. The following are snippets (all emphasis is mine):
The national Common Core State Standards (the “Standards”) were not created by the states, but rather by private organizations in Washington, DC, with lavish funding from private entities such as the Gates Foundation. The federal Department of Education then used legally suspect means – the Race to the Top competition and the promise of waivers from No Child Left Behind – to impose the Standards on the states. This effort has been accompanied by a misleading campaign to present the Standards as “state-led” and “voluntary.”
You've heard of Obama's Race to the Top, right? There are Federal grants to hand out stimulus funds to schools who walk the line and adopt Common Core along with other prerequisites to receive a "higher score" on grant applications. States want the money. States are signing up, as did my state of Oklahoma which has now had an awakening and is attempting to pull out.
Mediocre quality - The Standards, which are intended to prepare students for non-selective community colleges rather than four-year universities, are inferior to those of some states and no better than those of many others. 
Common Core's English language arts standards consist of empty skill sets that, once implemented, might not require reading skills any higher than middle-school level. Furthermore, their de-emphasis of the study of classic literature in favor of "informational texts" would abandon the goal of truly educating students, focusing instead on training them for static jobs. 
Among the many deficiencies of the mathematics standards is their placement of algebra I in grade 9 rather than grade 9, thus ensuring that most students will not reach calculus in high school and their mandate to teach geometry according to an experimental method never used successfully anywhere in the world. 
Contrary to previous claims by their creators, the Standards are not "internationally benchmarked.
State's Rights - fa'get aboud it!
...By imposing the standards on the states, and by funding their aligned assessments and imposing those on the states as well, the U.S. Department of Education is violating three federal statutes prohibiting its direction, supervision, or control of curriculum. 
In addition, because states that adopt the Standards must accept them word for word and will have little opportunity to add content...all to the denigration of parents' rights.
The most transparent administration ever:
Vague and unaccountable governance - It is not clear what governance structure will be created in the future to address issues related to the Standards. What is clear is clear that the Standards are owned and copyrighted by nongovernmental entities unaccountable to parents and students in individual states.
Has your child acted-out in school, even if just once? Been in a fight, been bullied and fought back? Your child's history will be archived for the ages:
Threats to student and family privacy - The federal Department of using the Standards and the assessments as vehicles to mandate the construction of massive state student databases.
The Department has also gutted federal student-privacy law to allow greater sharing of student with other government agencies and private entities....Partnering with the Department of Labor...seeks to build a data system that allows tracking of individual students from preschool through the workforce. 
...encompasses a worldview of the proper role of government that is greatly at odds with American founding principles.
Your state stands to receive millions if it submits:
...a $4.35 billion earmark for states "that have made significant progress" in making four education-reform objectives...
Think of it this way, your state gets paid to dumb down your children.

The massive cost of the program are found in No. 5 in the report. Read the full report here - a wealth of information for caring parents.

From Missouri Education Watchdog:
Bureaucrats will try to tell you assessments are taken from "Missouri Learning Standards" or "Alabama Learning Standards" to hide the fact that they are aligned to Common Core State Standards. 
Is a government entity dictating how/what private schools/homeschooling parents teach coming soon to your state? Private school parents and homeschool parents better watch their state education departments closely and be prepared to stop this invasion of their freedom to educate their children in the manner in which they deem appropriate.
The video is an Alabama Department of Education video, and you may not live in Alabama, but the states that are embracing this will have to come up with standards as well, and it will be easy because the Feds are telling each state what they can and cannot do - and paying them to do it. About 45 states have bellied-up to the bar.

Then there's the issue of which children will be allowed to progress to a 2 or 4-year college. Or will Common Core Standards show that your child will be better off in a trade school? Trade schools are a valuable resource, but you and your child should do the choosing

David Coleman is considered the "architect" of Common Core and like everyone in this Marxist administration, he is on a mission to put education into place to be "the engine of social justice," the engine that will fix what he considers "a massive social injustice in this country."
He [David Coleman] is on the board of directors of The Equity Project Charter School, a middle school in New York City that paid $125,000 salaries to teachers yet had a 31.3% passing rate in English in 2010-11. His alliance with unions includes praise for “organizations like the UFT in New York City and the AFT statewide.” Source: American Thinker, Dean Kalahar

 From one of my previous posts:
David Coleman, the acknowledged “architect” of Common Core Standards is busy rewriting PSATs and SATs to fall into line with his Common Core Standards on English. ...But…if states never sign-up for Common Core, or if states pull-out, if PSATs and SATs are written to Common Core Standards…what then? 
David Coleman has connections to Weather Underground bomber, William (Bill Ayers), Barack Obama and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, headed by Obama and appointed by Ayers. No, Ayers wasn’t “just a guy in the neighborhood” as Obama claimed when he was running for President. 
He and Ayers shared an office for three years, and cheated the children of Chicago out of millions of dollars of educational funding – a significant amount going to Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop, most of it to ethnic projects – not priorities like math and reading.
Perhaps you are not involved in schooling - an empty nester like me, or not yet a parent. Pass this information on to neighbors, school boards, your children so they can protect your grandchildren. This is NOT going to be an easy battle. States have already spent millions but if it isn't stopped, we will mourn the day every child in America falls behind high-achieving Asians, becomes government-indoctrinated - Christopher Columbus may be only known as the man who brought syphilis to America. Your child may be told to spend his/her life as a welder or hairdresser (and no disrespect to either) without the ability to make her/his own choice under Common Core. You won't be able to move to another state if you don't like your state's education - there is no state autonomy, or parental autonomy under Common Core Initiative Standards.

Zimmerman Juror B29 "Maddy" Interview Heavily Edited

George Zimmerman juror B29 identified as "Maddy," was interviewed by ABC's Robin Roberts.  There is a lot to story and I'll let you read it at NewBusters. There's more to it than just "he got away with murder." Here's a snippet:

 Zimmerman Juror B29 - Maddy 
Zimmerman Juror B29 - Maddy
But, he added, "the video that’s available already shows, on closer inspection, that Maddy has been manipulated and misrepresented." 
For starters, he said the phrase "got away with murder" was put in her mouth. 
“Some people have said, ‘George Zimmerman got away with murder. How do you respond to those people who say that?’" Robin Roberts asked. 
"George Zimmerman got away with murder. But you can’t get away from God,” the juror responded. But Saletan said that’s not quite how the exchange took place. 
"In the unedited video, Roberts’ question is longer, with words that have been trimmed from the Nightline version, and Maddy pauses twice, for several seconds, as she struggles to answer it," he said. 
Saletan said one has to watch the juror, not just listen to her words. According to Saletan, Maddy is trying to reconcile the premise of the question with her own sentiment, and repeats the quote, adding her own words to indicate that while Zimmerman was found not guilty, he would eventually have to answer to a higher authority. Read it all at Newsbusters
Media will not let the truth out about George Zimmerman because they don't have to. You'll remember that NBC edited the audio of Zimmerman's 911 call to make him appear racist. I'm tempted to say, you'd think ABC would have learned the lesson of NBC, but there is no one to hold them accountable to the wider audience, so lying by omission is accepted as truth. Network media is full of particularly flawed souls, accepting CBS' Sharyl Attkisson who has been spied upon, hacked and maligned for telling the truth and probably will be ousted from the Dan Rather network soon. The Lonely Conservative has more on this story.

The 46 Traitors Who Want To Give Away Our Gun Rights To The United Nations

Stolen from Patriot's Corner

I have highlighted the traitor from my state in RED.
Please share this with as many as you can and I say these traitors are no better than the master they serve in the regime, Obama.PatriotUSA

Traitors (46 of them) Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms, and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo. Astonishingly, 46 of our United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power. Here are the 46 senators that voted to give your rights to the U.N.

Muslim Persecution of Christians: April, 2013

Christian Suffering Under Jihadi Extremism

Before Egypt's President Muhammad Morsi was ousted, April was one of the worst months for Christian Copts there. On April 5 near Cairo, when a longstanding feud between a Christian family and a Muslim family—based on male Muslims sexually harassing Christian girls—culminated in the violent deaths of six Christians, including two of the participants, a Christian and a Muslim, being set on fire, and local Muslims went on another "collective punishment" spree. It resulted in the injury of at least 20 other Copts, an Evangelical church being set on fire, and an attack on a Coptic church, Two days later, after Copts had mourned their dead in the St. Mark Cathedral—Coptic Christianity's holiest site and home to the Coptic pope—Muslim mobs, who had waited outside, launched yet another attack—aided by state security forces. Eyewitnesses said as many as 40-50 tear gas canisters targeted the mourners, many of whom were women and children hiding in the cathedral. Two more Copts were killed and many dozens wounded as other officers stood by while the Muslim mob tried to destroy the cathedral.

Muslim "youth" climb to the roof of a building adjacent to St. Mark Cathedral to attack it. To the left, a man winds to hurl a projectile at it. And in the white circle to the right, high-ranking Egyptian officials and security stand by watching (easily recognizable by their hats and helmets). Source:

On one Friday after prayers, the Bilal Ibn Rabah Mosque in Cairo was turned into a "torture chamber" for Egyptians, many of whom were Christians, protesting the Muslim Brotherhood. One of the victims, Amir Ayad, a Christian, said he was severely beaten before being left for dead at the side of the road. He suffered a fractured skull, a broken arm, bleeding in his right eye and pellet wounds. Coptic Christian children, mostly boys, were targeted for kidnapping and held for ransom; one 6-year-old, after his family had paid the Muslim kidnapper, was killed. And a video appeared on Arabic-language websites showing a crowd of Muslims in Egypt assaulting and raping two Christian women on a crowded street and in broad daylight. Throughout, the women scream in terror as the men shout Islamic slogans such as "Allahu Akbar!" "["Allah is Greater!"] None of the many passersby intervenes in any way.

Also in April, during Easter week in Nigeria, Muslim herdsmen launched a series of raids on Christian villages, killing at least 80 Christians. Most of those slain were either children or the elderly. Over 200 Christian homes were destroyed, eight churches burned, and 4,500 Christians displaced. According to a pastor present at the time, "It was a helpless situation, as no Christians had any weapon to fight back. Women, children, and the elderly who were not able to escape were shot and killed. Luckily, all my children are in school, so this made it easier for our escape from the Muslim attackers. We sneaked away in the midst of the confusion and trekked for more than 20 kilometers [12 miles] to find a place to stay."

Categorized by theme, the rest of April's Muslim persecution of Christians around the world includes (but is not limited to) the following accounts, listed by theme and in country alphabetical order, not necessarily according to severity:

Church Attacks

Central African Republic: A number of church buildings were attacked and the homes of Christians looted in the aftermath of a bloody coup by Sharia-adherent Muslim rebels. During the chaos, as in a standard jihad, Christian property was targeted for plundering, while Muslim property was spared. The leader of the Muslim rebels, Michel Djotodia, "assumed the presidency from the ousted François Bozizé, becoming the predominantly Christian nation's first Muslim president." According to one Christian, "We are no longer at home. They pillage our goods which are then sold by the Muslims, who export them."

Indonesia: Local officials, at the behest of Islamist forces, demolished the Batak Protestant Church building in West Java and threatened to close others, causing hundreds of Christians to protest in the streets. Once again, as happens with increasing regularity in Indonesia, congregation members then held services in the street, near the site of the destroyed church. As the Morning Star News added: Indonesian officials routinely delay or deny church building permits… thus providing Islamic extremists a pretext for protests and attacks." Newspapers covering the event posted photos of "church members in tears—singing hymns, crying and begging local officials not to demolish their facility. Hundreds of police and army officers guarded the area while Muslim militants, shouting Koranic verses, cheered the excavator."

Saudi Arabia: Apparently once again "The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia—the top Islamic official in the country of Saudi Arabia—has [again] declared that it is 'necessary to destroy all the churches of the region." (First reported here over a year ago.)

Sudan: In the latest of a series of moves that have put pressure on Christians, a Muslim government minister announced that no new licenses will be granted for church buildings; he claimed that the existing churches are sufficient for the number of worshippers. Building churches has, in fact, been disallowed since South Sudan seceded in July 2011; the Islamist government of Khartoum responded by making the lives of Christians in Sudan even more difficult than usual. Days before this latest measure, the government deported a senior church leader and two expatriate missionaries who had been working with children in Khartoum. No reason was given. The government has also demolished countless church buildings on the pretext of paperwork irregularities.

Turkey: A 13th century church building, the Hagia Sophia of Trabizon (not to be confused with Constantinople's famous Hagia Sophia) is set to become a mosque again.

After the Ottoman conquest it had been turned from a church into a mosque, but later, under Turkey's secularist President, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, and apparently due to its "great historical and cultural significance" for Christians, it had been turned into a museum. Local authorities decreed that its Christian frescoes must again be covered in preparation for its reopening as a mosque. [Update: As of July, the Hagia Sophia of Trabizon has become a functioning mosque.]

Apostasy, Blasphemy, Proselytism

Indian Kashmir: In Srinagar, a Muslim mob attacked two men, five women and two children, all of British origin, on the accusation that they were preaching Christianity. The mob also threw stones at their vehicles and tried to destroy their home. The police, however, when they arrived, arrested the two men on, according to Asia News, "false charges of forced conversions." The local imam told police that, "if they try to convert anyone, I will prevent it at all costs." According to a Christian close to the case, "The false and defamatory accusations of the imam and the complicity of the police in arresting these Christians are a serious threat to religious freedom, a right guaranteed by the Constitution of India." Also in Srinagar, another Muslim mob attacked a Christian-children's home, beat the staff and visitors, tried to kill the pastor and kidnap the children, destroyed property, and killed the home's pet dog—again on the accusation that the group running the home was converting Muslim children to Christianity.

Somalia: Muslims from the Islamic organization Al Shabaab ("The Youth") shot to death 42-year-old Fartun Omar, a widow and mother of five, for converting to Christianity. Months earlier, they had killed her husband for the same "crime," and had been hunting for the wife, who, after abandoning Islam, had gone in hiding. She leaves behind five orphaned children. Separately, Al Shabaab Muslims also seized Hassan Gulled, 25, for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity, and imprisoned him, and tortured him. According to local sources, "Al Shabaab have been torturing him to see whether he would deny his Christian faith. Since last week, no information has surfaced concerning Gulled. There is a possibility that he could have been killed."

Tanzania: After a visit by an evangelist, Lukia Khalid, a Muslim mother of three, and nearly seven months pregnant, converted to Christianity; she later said: "My husband asked me whether I had left Islam, to which I said 'Yes.' He threatened to kill me if I was to stay with him. I then decided to escape that night with my three children to a neighbor's house…. We left only with the clothes that we were wearing. The command was so urgent that we could not wait any longer. We had to leave immediately." Unable to pay school fees and supplies without her husband, the children have stopped attending school.

[General Abuse of Non-Muslims as Second-Class "Citizens," or Dhimmis]

Iran: A new report, based on interviews with 31 Christians and produced by the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, has found "that the authorities consistently treat standard Christian practices, such as being a member of a house church or attending a Christian conference, as criminal acts. Although the Iranian government claims to respect the rights of its recognised religious minorities, it does not do so in practice. The report found that Christian converts and members of unregistered churches are denied the right freely to practise their faith, and that they face violations of their right to life through extrajudicial killings and even execution for apostasy (though only one Christian convert is known to have been executed since the 1979 Islamic Revolution)."

Pakistan: According to the Morning Star News, "Incited by calls from mosque loudspeakers after a dispute between Muslim and Christian youths, which started when Muslims told Christians not to play music [forbidden in Islam] a Muslim mob attacked a Christian neighborhood in Gujranwala today, injuring at least five Christians and damaging a church and dozens of shops and vehicles…. A resident of Francis Colony, where 2,000 Christian families have settled in the overwhelmingly Muslim-majority country, said police bias was evident in today's attack. 'The police was doing what it does best – nothing!' said Asif Barkat, who received minor injuries as he and other Christians tried to defend themselves. 'Their bias towards Christians is quite evident, because when the Muslims were raiding our church and property, they just watched, but when we confronted them, they started hitting us with batons and used live ammunition to deter us.'" Separately, two unidentified men tried by force to stop the car of the president of All Pakistan Minorities, Saleem Khursheed Khobar, a Christian, and when that failed, opened fire on him. As with other Christian human rights activists who have been assassinated in Pakistan, Khobar is being hounded for vocally representing the nation's downtrodden religious minorities: "I am being threatened and have gone into hiding to protect myself," he said from an undisclosed location. "Law enforcement agencies know that I am being followed. My whole family is under threat but the government doesn't care."

Syria: Christians continued to be targeted by Islamic rebels, especially for kidnapping. Among those abducted were two bishops, Bishop Yohanna Ibrahim and Bishop Paul Yazigi. An armed group of Chechen jihadis stopped their car, killed the driver, and took the two bishops hostage. Meanwhile, thousands of Christians continued to flee Syria. In in one instance, 500 crossed the border into Turkey, where church officials are considering building a "tent city" to house the refugees. Adds AINA: "Assyrians and other Christians in Syria have been disproportionately affected by the war, and have been targeted by the Muslims rebels. The Muslim Jihadists have kidnapped Assyrians for ransom, attacked places of worship and created a climate of fear, forcing many Assyrians to abandon their homes and villages and seek safety in Turkey."

Turkey: Erdal Dogan, a human rights defender, who played an important role in the trial of the 2007 Malatya massacre, against those Muslims who tortured and slaughtered three Christian men working in a Bible publishing house, "remained in life danger Friday, April 12, after receiving death threats," including from the defendants, one of whom threatened him during a hearing.

About this Series

Because the persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is on its way to reaching pandemic proportions, "Muslim Persecution of Christians" was developed to collate some—by no means all—of the instances of persecution that surface each month. It serves two purposes:

  1. To document that which the mainstream media does not: the habitual, if not chronic, Muslim persecution of Christians.
  2. To show that such persecution is not "random," but systematic and interrelated—that it is rooted in a worldview inspired by Sharia.

Accordingly, whatever the anecdote of persecution, it typically fits under a specific theme, including hatred for churches and other Christian symbols; sexual abuse of Christian women; forced conversions to Islam; apostasy and blasphemy laws that criminalize and punish with death those who "offend" Islam; theft and plunder in lieu of jizya (financial tribute expected from non-Muslims); overall expectations for Christians to behave like dhimmis, or second-class, "tolerated" citizens; and simple violence and murder. Sometimes it is a combination.

Because these accounts of persecution span different ethnicities, languages, and locales—from Morocco in the West, to India in the East, and throughout the West wherever there are Muslims—it should be clear that one thing alone binds them: Islam—whether the strict application of Islamic Sharia law, or the supremacist culture born of it.

NBC Pimping for Hillary

Gary Fouse

What used to be a great news network is now little more than a PR arm of the Democratic Party. Now we learn that NBC is planning a mini-series on Hillary Clinton in time for the 2016 elections starring some actress named Diane Lane as The Great Woman Herself.

And who is Diane Lane and why was she chosen?

"What difference, at this point, does it make?"

Ah yes. The resemblance is remarkable. Those legs will look great in a pantsuit.

I can just envision how it will go. Imagine a scene in the White House with a bunch of nervous advisers-white men all- trying to tell Bill how to respond to the embassy bombings in Africa. Suddenly, Hillary walks into the room and calmly gives Bill the winning advice, and everything turns up roses (except for that aspirin factory in Sudan).

Imagine dramatic courtroom scenes, where Hillary, the greatest woman lawyer in the country, wins a case for the Rose Law Firm against corporate polluters who poisoned the air that was breathed by a five-year-old girl who died from cancer as a result.

Imagine Hillary dealing with the unspeakable pain of her husband's infidelities, but determined ultimately to keep the family together for the sake of the country.

Imagine endless scenes of Hillary jetting off to one world capital after another, speaking to world leaders, seeking peace here and there and everywhere. Why not use a little old Hollywood dramatic license and actually portray an actual peace deal brokered by Hillary, such as Israel and the Palestinians, perhaps?

Imagine Hillary as the secretary of state at three in the morning during the Benghazi attack communicating directly with Ambassador Stevens right up to the moment the line goes dead and she knows she has lost one of her best friends, giving orders and telling the army to send in the troops, only to be thwarted by nervous generals in the Pentagon. Imagine Hillary fearlessly spearheading the drive to catch and imprison the man responsible for the attack in Benghazi and other places-that film maker in LA.

How will Diane Lane ever do Hillary justice?

"Those messages from Libya never reached my desk."

And I can only wonder where the suits at NBC came up with the idea for this mini-series. Could it have been from your humble blogger-little ol' me? After all, I am the one who started the first Hillary mini-series, am I not? I have already produced one great story with three great sequels.

Note to NBC: Don't steal any of my scripts. You'll be hearing from my lawyer.

LaRaza Former Director Directed Gang of 8 Senate Immigration Bill From the White House

If it is too complicated for the full 100-member Senate body to get together to craft legislation, and we are plagued with the Gangs of 8 to do the business of the U.S. Senate, why would Obama's Director of White House Policy be involved in an immigration bill four Republicans think is swell? Celia Munoz, the referred to Director, formerly worked for the National Council of La Raza. Now we understand why an alien is allowed to have three fraudulent passports before such behavior results in a crime. Crime pays for illegals in America.

Crime Pays Under Gang of Eight Immigration Bill

Crime Pays Under Gang of Eight Immigration Bill[/caption] We still do not know why Senators Marco Rubio and John McCain said they didn't know the law had been changed so preposterously. Do they know about the power shift to the Department of Justice? Why would the Senate bill allow an alien to have two drunken driving offenses before it becomes an issue for citizenship on the third time caught. It takes only one drunken driving event to bring death or lifetime injuries to a legal American. But here's an easy one: Under the Senate bill, why would Border Control/Patrol/Agents/ICE be moved from Homeland Security to the Department of Justice's Human Rights Division - the same wing of the DOJ who told a judge to shove his guilty judgement against the New Black Panther Party's voter intimidation in Philadelphia?

 New Black Panthers with Billy Club at Philadelphia Polling Spot 
New Black Panthers with Billy Club at Philadelphia Polling Spot

 Who better to advance the unconstitutional invasion of illegals into the U.S. after the pathway to citizenship makes tens of millions legal, than the Department of Justice. Eric Holder said he wasn't leaving office because he still has goals to meet.

This is a big one. Investors Business Daily finds a slush fund of $300 million for La Raza and other community organizers in the bill. New provisional citizens will need someone to interpret laws for them and point them to where the money can be found.

Someone will need to defend them on the first two DUIs, unless the law also allows them not to be bothered with such a new provisional.

Will they see charges on the first three fraudulent passports (today, the first is a federal crime), even though not deported, not jailed, or denuded of future citizenship? I don't know. Maybe it's ignored until the fourth time. If not, they will need an attorney.

The slush fund is important. La Raza receives $10 million per year, now. Their bank account is about to swell along with numerous other's like them on a smaller scale. Senators Rubio (FL) and McCain (AZ) are only two of the four Republican members of the Gang of 8. Let Senators Jeff Flake (AZ) and Lindsey Graham (SC) know how unhappy you are with their participation in this treasonous legislation.

 It's a serious mistake to just pass over the fact that Border Control/Patrol will be placed under the purview of the Human Rights Division of the Department of Justice. Let this keep you awake for a few nights.

93 Year Old Louise Sollowin Raped Beaten by Illegal Alien Sergio Martinez-Perez

Louise Sollowin, 93 years old, died after illegal alien Sergio Martinez-Perez broke into her home where she had lived for 71 years, raped her and beat her to death. Little comfort to be found in Martinez-Perez being charged with first degree murder, first degree burglary and first degree assault. He doesn't speak English. He was worthless in this country. There was no grand design for him, but there was for Ms. Sollowin who made children's clothing, loved to tell stories, loved her family and was loved back.
The officer said Sergio Martinez-Perez, 19, was naked and passed out on top of the woman. Authorities believe Martinez-Perez entered the home through an unlocked door... But prosecutors have said Martinez-Perez acknowledged assaulting and raping Sollowin, saying he was “angry with women” after a night of drinking. Source: Angry White Dude

Sergio Martinez-Perez had been in the country for four months and was working for a roofer who should have his own court date and face the consequences of his actions, enabling this man to earn a pay check. Proof at Proof Positive has this story as well and compares it the story of another true immigrant. It is passionately written - comes from his heart, I can tell. I hope you will read it here.

1. Why did you start a political blog and when?

I started blogging on 21 April 2008 with this post.   I was considering putting my voice out into cyberspace for a while, but after a long talk with my dear friend Roger Gardner (May he rest in peace) of Radarsite convinced me into adding my voice.

2. Who is the one person still living that you would most like to meet and chat with?

I would love to have a sit down with Bibi Netanyahu.  Right now not a sit down, more of a ass kicking.   I would like to know how a man of such patriotism could sell his nation out.

3. Would you replace Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Roberts if given the opportunity, and if so why and replace with whom?

I  don't think I would replace John Robers.  I would get rid of Sonia Sotomayer and Elana Kagan and find 2 Conservative Constitutionalists to replace each one.

4. If you could visit one nation you have never visited before, what nation would that be?

This is a hard one since I am well traveled. I think I would like to experience North Korea.  One cannot visit that nation, but visit it to feel the true face of Communist Repression.

5. What is something you would collectively change about humanity?

I would get rid of our ability to hate one another for stupid reasons.  Reasons of faith, skin color,  sexual orientation, etc.  Could you imagine Islam without the anti-Semitism, or if Black people stopped hating White people?  Without the hatred, the bigotry we have for each other, this world would actually become a paradise.

6. What book has influenced your life (other than the Bible or Torah) and describe how?

The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsy.  This book was released when I was in High School and told of the horrors of the Soviet System.  It scared me beyond Atlas Shrugged or any other anti-Communist book.  It should be mandatory reading in High School.

7. If you were free to live in any city/town you choose in the U.S., which would you choose and why?

I think there are some beautiful places here in the US.   A small town in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, or Utah would be nice.  But it is a pipe dream for me now.
