Honestly I do not recall the particulars of how I got into a facebook conversation with David Dodt but I am sure pleased that I did. In belatedly checking my facebook email alerts I discovered three conversation messages from David that really are not related but nevertheless very informative.
On October 3rd David provides a brief but so true mini-history of Islam. These are some historical details that if repeated in front of the wrong Muslim you might wish to be certain to have an equalizer in your possession (GUN). Such a Muslim would whack your head off for blaspheming his religion even though the facts have been well studied.
The next conversion David points out the obvious the Mainstream Media (MSM) refuses to address. In speaking plainly that point is Obama and his Democratic Party utilizing illegal immigration to pad the vote to their favor. Regardless of the actions of some Dem dominated States it is quite illegal for a non-citizen to vote in an American election.
The last conversation refers to a novel penned by David Dodt that is a Conspiracy-War thriller on a global basis. When I scrape up the dough David’s book definitely sounds like some literature I would enjoy reading.
This will save you some homework. But if you disagree, be my guest and hit the books yourself. Islam is a phony religion. If you look up the names of ancient God’s of the Middle East, you will find RA, Karnack, Isis, Baal and yes Allah (the Moon God) among other god’s and deities.
All the rituals and symbols of Islam are copied from the Moon God religion. The Crescent Moon, The Crescent Moon with an offset star both come from the Moon God religion. The stars in the heavens are Allah’s daughters. You find this, when you see the ceiling of many mosques. The Crescent Moon symbols are on top of mosques and on the flag of Turkey and Pakistan. Now the offset star, most likely the planet Venus, with the Crescent Moon is the symbol of the son of the Moon God. Bowing to the East was the way a member of the Moon God religion, paid their respects to the wife of the moon God as she rises in the morning. (The Sun God)
The main worship site was Mecca and you were expected, as a Moon God Worshiper, to make one pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in your lifetime. The highest religious times were between the Crescent phases of the moon. In Islam that is called Ramadan.
Once in Mecca you were expected to walk several times around this plaza with a large square stone structure in the middle and with a sheet covering it. Then someone saw and found a meteor that fell to the ground and brought it to Mecca. It must be a gift from the Moon God. So you, as a worshiper, you were then and now expected to kiss this stone that came from the heavens. In the old days you ended by throwing a rock at the evil Jinn, the evil Jinn was a trickster demon. That is where we get the word Genie from. In Islam they changed that to the Devil. But the ritual stays the same.
Did Muhammad know all this? Yes, in fact his father and grandfather had the name Allah in their very long names. He was brought up in this area and Allah was worshiped in that area of the world for 700 years. So Muhammad co-opted an existing religion for his own purposes. Once he had some followers, if you disagreed with his religion, you got your head cut off. So the Saudi Arabian flag has soared on it, with the proclamation that there is no God but Allah.
So Muhammad became a self-serving, narcissist and pedophile. Why pedophile you may ask? His 4th wife, Aisha, was 6 years old when he married her. I must have been hard finding a virgin back in the day. But it is said that he did not have relations with her until she reached the age of 9 years old. During one of his military conquests he captured two towns and kept two Jewish women as sex slaves.
Today in Saudi Arabia they changed the marriageable age, for girls, from 9 to 10 years old. Iran is also allowing girls as young as 10 years old, to be married.
The 2016 Election
(1) Illegal Aliens are being distributed all over the country.
(2) The government isn’t telling exactly which state or city that they are going too.
(3) President Obama will give illegal aliens amnesty and a Green Card after the 2014 election.
(4) Illegal alien children that are 16 years old will be eligible and encouraged to vote in 2016, illegally.
(5) These aliens may not know or be told that they can vote. After the election they will find themselves arrested, because they were not an eligible voter.
(6) Did this illegal voting happen before? Yes back when President Jimmy Carter gave his amnesty program.
(7) This illegal alien distribution is geared for the 2016 election. Senator Reid and Obama will block any legislation passed by The Republican majority after the 2014 election.
(8) States run by a Democratic political machine will give out photo ID’s so the illegal aliens have one, so they can vote.
(9) Voting machines will be altered so even if you vote Republican on Election Day, it will be recorded as a vote for Democrats.
(10) If voter fraud is very low in 2014, this is a way to lull the public into thinking voter fraud is non-existent, before the 2016 election takes place. That makes it easier, to create massive voter fraud.
The Dragon Awakens
By David W. Dodt Sr.
I’ll keep it simple; China is going to attack the Middle East and capture their oil fields, but first it must conquer India. They cannot leave a potential enemy with the ability to block their forces. Now that I let the cat out of the bag, all I had to do is find out who and how someone is going to stop them. How I came to this decision was a well of hard research. All this research initiated the question about what is China going to do with all that military equipment they are purchasing. Of course they were going to attack someone.
The logistics for the Chinese was the hardest nut to crack. But once I figured these problems out, the story just flowed.
My manuscript is written with the reader being in several places at the same time in the same chapter. So you could be in China, in Tibet, or Korea, aboard a U.S. Navy ship, in Rome, or in the White House, observing events and listening to conversations as they take place.
You also see and note the characters decisions as events unfold. You will meet the head of the Chinese PLA, (Peoples Liberation Army) a sailor that reports to his ship after finishing A-School, the Captain of the U.S.S. Coronado as she steams across the Pacific, a successful Chinese industrialist, a Catholic Priest, the President of the United States and the commander of all American Naval Forces in the Pacific just to name a few. But each character adds an important piece to the puzzle, which makes up this story.
I’m a big Tom Clancy fan and my book came out just a couple of days after he died. I will always consider him my mentor.
The book is being well received and is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Kindle. If you’re in Australia it is available on Booktopia.
I have been encouraged by the interest nationwide as I have been interviewed on radio shows from all over the country. I have done one local TV interview so far. You can watch it on YouTube. You just type in the book title. This TV experience was very professionally done. The interview explains a lot.

In the story China sends a million man army to attack and conquer the Middle Eastern oil fields. But India stands in the way and must be dealt with first. Who and how this is stopped? Who is rescued and who falls in love? Well, you have to read the book to find out. Each character holds a part of the puzzle.

P/S There is also a love story about the daughter of a mayor who is captured and the rescued by A US Marine Recon Unit. Yes, it’s one of the Marines that rescued her.
P/S again: I’ve been out of town for a couple of days. I went to the Great Lakes Navy Base in Chicago for the mustering out of my nephew. He retired after 24 years of service. He was a Chief Petty Officer John Russell Dodt. As many of the whole family that could go, did so. There were also some shipmates that traveled cross country just to be there. There is quite a ceremony involved when a Chief retires. He also received, at the same time, the Navy, Marine Corp, Commendation Medal.

Dave comes to the show to talk about his book and the conversation gets amazing… I love doing my show..!!
On my NCCR blog a commenter sent a link totally unrelated to my blog post on Asia Bibi; nonetheless the commenter – futuret – has found such a relevant post originally found on The Counter Jihad Report that it is worth a cross post.
Counter Jihad’s post is actually from former Representative and retired Lt. Col. Allen West. West is exposing Michael Bloomberg, the former Mayor of NYC – a Leftist billionaire – for being very supportive with the Radical Muslim Emirate of Qatar on the Saudi Arabian Peninsula. This is something Americans should be aware of. It exposes the Left’s idiotic support for Radical Islam and Islam’s nefarious agenda to spread that religion of evil by hook or by crook across the globe.
Actually six other Counterjihad writers and proponents also signed this open letter including the staff of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. Allen West – in my opinion – is the biggest mover and shaker of the signatories. The Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition is derived from the Stop Qatar Now website in which there is a lot of info on the nefariousness of Qatar.
Qatar Awareness Campaign: Letter to Michael Bloomberg #StopQatarNow
Signed by: Allen B. West; Frank J. Gaffney, Jr.; Pamela Geller; Walid Shoebat; Charles Ortel; Paul E Vallely; Robert Spencer & the entire Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition
Posted: October 29, 2014
731 Lexington Ave.
New York, NY 10022
Dear Mr. Bloomberg:
This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of the State of Qatar, whose government you and your philanthropies are connected to and work with. Qatar is a state sponsor of terror, providing funds to Fatah and Hamas, and the host country of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The crisis with Israel is a direct result of Qatar’s/the Muslim Brotherhood’s relationship with the Obama administration, and, in general, Washington D.C. Just yesterday, it was reported that a senior Obama official called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “chickenshit.” In August, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry attempted to force Israel to accept Qatari-negotiated “peace” terms with Hamas. What loaded dice.
You and Bloomberg Philanthropies have donated millions to Qatar-connected education and financial endeavors. These include Common Core, Connect All Schools, banking interests in Qatar and other Islamic countries that actively finance global terror, think tanks and social referendums having to do with anti-smoking, as well as global warming initiatives that adhere to Qatar’s own stated development goals.
The 3rd annual Bloomberg Doha Conference, to be held this year, will expressly go into the ties between the Bloomberg empire of press and financial companies and Qatar. The conference will cover topics such as: setting the agenda; the global perspective; regional landscape; transition of power; the new Qatari leadership; a conversation with Sir Michael Hintze; Islamic finance; real estate; Saudi energy markets and geopolitics; Iran, Syria and regional political stability; asset allocation; where are the opportunities in the region; traditional versus alternative, wealth preservation for the new generation; World Cup spending and development; regulation and the role this plays for managers looking at the region; investment destinations outside the Middle East and following the money.
All of this indicates a strong, intrinsic financial and strategic relationship between Bloomberg LP and Qatar. All this can be used as leverage against Qatar, which is right now threatening Israel vis-à-vis Washington D.C., Hamas, and Fatah.
In light of these connections that entwine the Bloomberg enterprises with the terrorist state of Qatar, we urge you to read the information below. Qatar is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell and profits from operating a virtual slave state.
So the public has a fuller context of Qatar’s role in supporting and financing terrorist activities worldwide, and their connection to Bloomberg:
· Bloomberg has partnered with Qatar on Common Core and the Connect All Schools Project. This project is bringing Arabic as a primary language into New York’s schools. Teaching the Arabic language is based on the grammar in the Quran. Therefore, by default, Islamic education is being forced on grade school children in the United States. Over 100 schools across the country are now implementing this curriculum, which is financed and promoted by Qatar.
· The Ground Zero Mosque – now Park51 – was promoted by you (as mayor) and Qatar as well as individuals with radical Islamist ties and terrorism links. Out of a sense of political correctness and the desire to not offend Muslims, this mosque was proposed 600 feet from where the Twin Towers stood on 9/11/2001. As mayor, you banned clergy and first responders from 9/11 ceremonies. The names of those lost that fateful day were also requested by you not to be read, so it would not upset the Islamic community.
· During your tenure as Mayor of New York City, Sharia law has been implemented in various forms throughout the city: such as, allowing exceptions for prayer times regardless of job affiliation. The Call to Prayer rings out in Manhattan these days as well and the number of mosques in NYC has exploded over the last few years. Many of these mosques receive funds from Qatar.
· Bloomberg and the Qatar Central Bank launched an Interbank Rate in 2012. Qatar Central Bank (QCB) and Bloomberg LP partnered to launch the first ever Qatar Interbank Offer Rate (QIBOR) fixings in a move aimed at encouraging a more active interbank market in Qatar. Interbank rate fixings are used around the world to provide a daily reference point for banks borrowing unsecured funds from other banks in the local wholesale banking market and this announcement brought Qatar into that market for the first time.
· Bloomberg LP has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. In 2011, Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal announced plans to partner with the Bloomberg news service to establish a new Arabic language news channel. Prince Talal’s donations to the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), both part of the US Muslim Brotherhood, as well as his support of the Georgetown University Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (CCMU), run by long-time Muslim Brotherhood supporter Dr. John Esposito, are well documented. In 2008, an Arab business publication reported that Prince Talal had also made numerous financial contributions to a pan-Islamic interfaith dialog organization that is closely tied to the global Muslim Brotherhood and which has an anti-Semitic statement posted on its website. In March of 2008, the Kingdom Foundation established by Prince Talal was one of the sponsors of a conference held by the World Congress of Muslim Philanthropists (WCMP), a new international Islamic philanthropic organization with strong Muslim Brotherhood representation. To be clear, to partner with Talal is to partner with the Muslim Brotherhood.
· The banning of smoking indoors fits Islamic Sharia law, as the use of tobacco is haram (i.e., forbidden). For instance, the Nigerian Islamist group – Boko Haram, established by a Qatari proxy who now resides in Doha – recently executed two people for smoking. A Bloomberg anti-tobacco initiative partnered with the Turkish AKP, an Islamist party hostile to Israel and secular Turks, to seriously curtail smoking in that country, just as you did in New York City.
The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities. The links cited are vetted and credible sources. We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.
After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatar for the security of Israel in these extremely perilous times!

About The Counter Jihad Report
I am a retired nurse. I started reading about Islamic Jihad after 9/11. After going to conferences and speaking engagements on the subject I began to connect with others and started sharing what I had learned.
I started this blog in response to the frequently asked questions, “Where can I go to learn more?” and “What action can be taken?”
This blog is mainly a news aggregating site but will also include an extensive library of resources for studying Islam and networking with other Counter Jihad activists.
My Interest in Islamic Jihad stems from the 1983 Hezbollah truck … READ THE REST
The Qatar Awareness Campaign (QAC) seeks to raise awareness of Qatar and their activities around terror, genocide, and transnational organized crime – including slavery and narcotics.
Why Qatar? They are responsible for…
- The recent Israel/Hamas war (Qatar hosts and funds Hamas, whose tunnel system is used for smuggling and terrorism)
- Boko Haram (Qatar helped to found Boko Haram, who are involved in slave trade and narcotics)
- ISIS (Qatar helped to create and finance ISIS, who are involved directly with narcotics and slaves).
- The Taliban (they partner with and profit from Taliban heroin smugglers, the Pakistani National Logistics Cell).
- 9/11 (Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was on a Qatari Ministry’s payroll, and the Emir of Qatar amazingly delivered him into U.S. custody as soon as the pressure grew too hot for Qatar to handle)
Apart from terrorism, Qatar is effectively a slave state.
Qatar works captive migrant workers, more accurately termed slaves, in awful and treacherous conditions. These workers are paid less than $1 per hour, if they get paid at all. 4,000 workers are expected to die preparing for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Doha, more than double the number killed in the recent Israel-Hamas conflict.

Asia Bibi, Ashaq Masih – husband & Children
John R. Houk
© October 26, 2014
Asia Bibi is a Pakistani Christian. She has been in a Pakistan slammer since 2009. Why? A bunch of religious racist Muslim ladies were upset Asia drew water out of a well designated for Muslims. A common practice among the Muslim populace of Pakistan is to exact personal revenge and steal Christian property by leveling the accusation against a Christian for breaking Pakistan’s Blasphemy Law. The Muslim gals at the well were so enraged a Christian used a Muslim well and touched the utensils used to draw water that a couple of them (appropriately the name of one of the Muslim gals is Mafia) shouted Asia Bibi muttered blasphemous comments against the antichrist prophet known as Mohammed (or Muhammad or whatever). Pakistan’s Blasphemy Law (See Also HERE) says that is a good enough reason for a capital crime.
Asia denies the accusation, BUT if she did – SO WHAT! I bad mouth that antichrist prophet all the time. I am a Christian and quite frankly I find it quite annoying that Mo established a bloody religion in which Jew-hatred and Christian-hatred are actually encoded in Islamic holy writings – especially the Quran considered by Muslims to be the direct words from the demon Allah.
Christian’s in Muslim dominated nations have had to face the Islamic assault on Jesus Christ’s divinity and divine origins for over a thousand years. When the Muslims conquered the Christian majority Middle East and North Africa their lives as oppressed people became so horrendous that after a few hundred years of human demoralization the Christian majority slowly converted to Islam to leave denigration behind.
Pakistani Christians like Asia Bibi face this human denigration which often ends with the Muslim ultimatum: convert or die. Asia Bibi has been sentenced to death. To get out of the death sentence she simply has to deny her Savior Jesus Christ and embrace Islam.
Bravely, Asia Bibi has chosen Christ for life in eternity rather than a future lake of fire for denying her Savior. Asia’s only hope to escape a demonic death sentence in this life is if Western nations – ESPECIALLY THE USA – step in notifying Pakistan there will be consequences if it allows the execution of Asia Bibi.
A huge amount of Pakistan’s military budget is supplied by the United States of America. David French writing an article for the ACLJ about Asia Bibi’s plight indeed shows how the U.S. government under the Obama Administration can indeed exact consequences on Pakistan for allowing death sentences under Free Speech issues.
We Christians know President Barack Hussein Obama has gone out of his way to schmooze with Islamic nations and even Radical Muslim organizations that support this Islamic Supremacist ideology of executing people for using Mo and Islam’s name in vain. I mean dear God in Heaven he has had Jew-hating and Christian-hating Muslim Brotherhood and Salafists come to the White House to listen to their opinion.
We Christians know the Democratic Party that endorses the murder of unborn children as a form of birth control and has forced Americans via the Courts to submit to a homosexual agenda even though both the Old and New Testament make no bones that such a lifestyle is an abomination in the eyes of God. (** Just to note that neither I nor the Christian Scriptures endorse the execution of abortionists and homosexuals as say Sharia-minded Muslims would.)
So what can Christians do to bring pressure on the U.S. government to actually address an injustice being exacted on the Christian minority of Pakistan?
ONE: On November 4th flood to the polls to vote Republican or at least a Conservative candidate representing any other political party. BUT NOT VOTING for one single Democrat or Independent supporting ungodly issues the Democrats support.
TWO: Flood your Senator and Representative in Congress to place political pressure on Pakistan to save Asia Bibi and other Christians under the same idiocy of Islamic Supremacist death sentences for expressing Free Speech and Religious Freedom issues. AND I DO MEAN FLOOD!
A good way to begin that flood is to sign every petition you can find (even if it is a fund raising tool) in which the petition is actually delivered to persons or a person with political influence.

Top U.S. Aid Recipient Is Set to Hang a Christian Woman for Blasphemy
By David French
October 22, 2014
Pakistan is a perennial recipient of billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. It’s an occasional ally/frequent enemy, sometimes actively conspiring against U.S. interests, sometimes actually firing on U.S. troops (incidents so notorious they now have their own Wikipedia page), and — of course — it’s the home of increasingly virulent jihadist extremism. And, no, this extremism isn’t confined to the fringes of Pakistani society but is sometimes even manifested in its appellate courts.
Last week, a Pakistani court of appeals upheld Asia Bibi’s death sentence for blasphemy. She’s a Christian and a mother of five.
Death. For allegedly saying bad things about Mohammed.
Not that it matters (one should be able to freely insult the prophet of Islam without fear of death), but there’s evidence that even the inherently illegitimate blasphemy charge is trumped-up nonsense. Here’s Asia Bibi describing the incident in her own words. The story begins with Bibi taking a drink of water, then offering the cup to her Muslim neighbors:
Then I start to hear muttering. I pay no attention and fill the cup again, this time holding it out to a woman next to me who looks like she’s in pain. She smiles and reaches out . . . At exactly the moment Musarat pokes her ferrety nose out from the bush, her eyes full of hate: “Don’t drink that water, it’s haram!”
Musarat addresses all the pickers, who have suddenly stopped work at the sound of the word “haram,” the Islamic term for anything forbidden by God.
“Listen, all of you, this Christian has dirtied the water in the well by drinking from our cup and dipping it back several times. Now the water is unclean and we can’t drink it! Because of her!”
It’s so unfair that for once I decide to defend myself and stand up to the old witch.
“I think Jesus would see if differently from Mohammed.”
Musarat is furious. “How dare you think for the Prophet, you filthy animal!”
The story then moves into the familiar demand for conversion:
“That’s right, you’re just a filthy Christian! You’ve contaminated our water and now you dare speak for the Prophet! Stupid bitch, your Jesus didn’t even have a proper father, he was a bastard, don’t you know that.”
Musarat comes over as though she’s going to hit me and yells: “You should convert to Islam to redeem yourself for your filthy religion.”
I feel a pain deep inside. We Christians have always stayed silent: We’ve been taught since we were babies never to say anything, to keep quiet because we’re a minority. But I’m stubborn too and now I want to react, I want to defend my faith. I take a deep breath and fill my lungs with courage.
“I’m not going to convert. I believe in my religion and in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of mankind. What did your Prophet Mohammed ever do to save mankind? And why should it be me that converts instead of you?”
Bibi’s act of defiance is rewarded with physical assault, an assault that days later grows more sinister:
Five days later, I went to work fruit picking in another field. I’ve almost filled my bowl when I hear what sounds like a rioting crowd. I step back from my bush, wondering what’s going on, and in the distance I see dozens of men and women striding along towards our field, waving their arms in the air.
I catch the cruel eyes of Musarat. Her expression is self-righteous and full of scorn. I shiver as I suddenly realize that she hasn’t let it go. I can tell she’s out for revenge. The excited crowd are closer now; they are coming into the field and now they’re standing in front of me, threatening and shouting.
“Filthy bitch! We’re taking you back to the village! You insulted our Prophet! You’ll pay for that with your life!”
They all start yelling:
“Death! Death to the Christian!”
The angry crowd is pressing closer and closer around me. I’m half lying on the ground when two men grab me by the arms to drag me away. I call out in a desperate, feeble voice:
“I haven’t done anything! Let me go, please! I haven’t done anything wrong!”
When a young mullah intervenes, he is explicit: Convert or die.
“If you don’t want to die,” says the young mullah, “you must convert to Islam. Are you willing to redeem yourself by becoming a good Muslim?”
Sobbing, I reply:
“No, I don’t want to change my religion. But please believe me, I didn’t do what these women say, I didn’t insult your religion. Please have mercy on me.”
I put my hands together and plead with him. But he is unmoved.
“You’re lying! Everyone says you committed this blasphemy and that’s proof enough. Christians must comply with the law of Pakistan, which forbids any derogatory remarks about the holy Prophet. Since you won’t convert and the Prophet cannot defend himself, we shall avenge him.”
This is a nation with a nuclear arsenal, that flies dozens of F-16s supplied by the United States, and is an alleged partner in our war on terror. But it’s a nation that sentences mothers to death simply because they’re Christians who refuse to deny Christ — even in the face of an angry, violent mob.
Bibi is appealing to Pakistan’s highest court, a process that could take years. In the meantime, how many more billions of American dollars will subsidize this savagery? I fully recognize there are good and noble members of Pakistani society — our European Centre for Law and Justice has an affiliate in Pakistan that is staffed with courageous lawyers who’ve saved many Christian lives — but it’s past time for our government to insist that our alleged allies behave in a manner that not only advances U.S. interests but also protects the most basic of human rights of Pakistan’s persecuted Christian minority.
We simply cannot tolerate jihadist extremism. Yet we do, again and again — even subsidizing and arming it. And how are we rewarded for this appeasement and forbearance?
With more sharia; with more jihad.
And with more Christian mothers facing the hangman’s noose.

Democrats have had a longggg history of voter fraud during national elections. Whenever a ballot election is close it seems votes mysteriously appear favoring a Dem in which Mickey Mouse voted, a dead person voted, an illegal alien voted, a registered voter voted twice or enigmatically more votes are counted than exist on the registered rolls. The Left Wing organization known as ACORN has been caught numerous times with its tentacles in the ballot box.

NOW it appears the State of Colorado will become a case study on how Left Wing millionaires and billionaires have successfully conspired to steal local elections enabling a Leftist agenda to root out Conservative American values in School Districts and Counties to brainwash young minds to hate America the same way that Obama Democrats hate America. This allows a transformative ideology to transform a traditionally Conservative State into a Left Wing State that despises the gun rights of the Second Amendment, forces courts to accept homosexuality as normal rather than a pornographic aberration, forces Christians to comply to alternate lifestyles or face fines for breaking the law in terms of discrimination or hate-speech.
Here’s a Breitbart piece that explains the Leftist theft of an American culture in Colorado:
… Rocky Mountain Heist, a documentary that examines how Colorado turned blue announced Thursday by Citizens United Productions President David N. Bossie. Native Coloradan and conservative commentator Michelle Malkin hosts the film, which was written and directed by Jason Killian Meath.
The documentary unmasks the “Gang of Four,” a group of cryptic millionaire and billionaire leftists who effectively hijacked Colorado’s political landscape. The four, who were among Colorado’s wealthiest residents, were able to enact their liberal vision for the state in a very short amount of time.
… Rocky Mountain Heist is an important film to educate people about what the left is wiling (sic) to do.”
“I have been a proud resident of Colorado for six years now,” Malkin told Breitbart News. “When I first got here you could already see some of the signs of the purpling of Colorado. At the time I did not know the back story of the Gang of Four and the very meticulously laid out plans that these shady leftwing millionaires and billionaires had for this state.”
Malkin added that the very things which attracted me to Colorado — like the low taxes, entrepreneurial spirit — are the antithesis of the Gang of Four.
“What the Gang of Four did was marshal all of the resources of wealthy progressives, hid in back rooms, and were able to pick off republicans who had no idea what was coming,” …
… “The most disturbing aspect of this Colorado ‘heist’ is this model is being replicated across other reliably Red states such as Virginia and Texas – if successful, the results could be catastrophic for America as a nation.”

With just two weeks until the 2014 midterm elections, there are warnings that a new Colorado law has opened the door to possible voter fraud in a critical Senate race.
About 16 months ago, the Democratic governor signed an election law which allows residents to print ballots from their home computers, then turn them over to collectors. Critics say this could lead to voter fraud, and they allege it was pushed through the state Legislature to keep Democrats in power.
Over the course of a decade, a once-red state has become more Democratic – and a new film, hosted by Michelle Malkin, tells the story of how that happened. “Rocky Mountain Heist,” produced by Citizens United, is a documentary which reveals how a wealthy liberal quartet took over the state.
Malkin and Citizens United President David Bossie were on “The Kelly File” tonight to discuss the film.
Malkin said that Citizens United and Bossie “have been absolute warriors in this fight” to inform the public. She said it was even a battle to get the film out, calling it a victory for conservative political speech.
“What happened here in Colorado can happen in the rest of the country,” she warned, explaining that the “Gang of Four” coordinated and used “shady nonprofits” to plot to take over the state Legislature.
“The hypocrisy reeks, it smokes, it burns,” she said.
So what is the hypocrisy? As much as we Conservatives correctly wag our fingers at billionaire George Soros for his deceptive Left Wing transforming global agenda, the Leftist tear up and cry about the billionaire Koch Brothers.
Arnold Ahlert writing for FrontPage Mag exposes Leftists and Democrats for the liars they are.
A screed published Monday by the New York Times editorial board sets the tone. “Democrats have for too long been passive in the face of the vast amounts of corporate money, most of it secret, that are being spent to evict them from office and dismantle their policies,” the paper breathlessly states. “By far the largest voice in many of this year’s political races, for example, has been that of the Koch brothers, who have spent tens of millions of dollars peddling phony stories about the impact of health care reform, all in order to put Republicans in control of the Senate after the November elections.”
As the Times reveals, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is leading the charge, noting that in a recent speech, Reid “pointed out that the fundamental purpose of the Kochs’ spending is to rig the economic system for their benefit and for that of other oligarchs.” The insinuation is obvious: it is the “evil rich” Koch brothers and their small cabal of equally evil and powerful allies against the rest of us. The paper further notes that the Democrat National Committee (DNC) has set up a website, www.kochaddiction.com, dedicated solely to promoting that proposition, and “to remind voters of just what the Kochs stand for, and why they raised $407 million in the 2012 election.”
After reading all that, one might be tempted to conclude that the Koch brothers are among the heaviest hitters in American politics. This, of course, is false. As the website OpenSecrets.org reveals, among the top all-time donors from the years 1989-2014, the Koch brothers come in at — wait for it — number 59. The same website further reveals that 6 of the top 10 political donors are unions, who overwhelmingly favor Democrats with their campaign contributions by margins of 91 precent (sic) or greater, compared to what they give Republicans.
In case you missed it billionaires Charles and David Koch are ranked 59th in giving to political causes way behind the more deceptive Leftist millionaires, billionaires and well financed organizations such as Unions. The very lies that Senator Harry Reid brandished against the Koch brothers from the Senate floor is what Leftists actually DID DO in Colorado. That friends is real hypocrisy.
This Gang of Four cabal has been known for some time which you will notice if you do a Google search using such phrases as Colorado Gang of Four. I find it astounding the Mainstream Media has no problem reporting Senator Reid’s tirade against the Koch brothers telling American TV viewers by name of the Leftist perspective Conservatives are evil. So let’s name the real evil from Colorado – the Gang of Four: Pat Stryker, Jared Polis, Tim Gill, and Rutt Bridges.
Patricia “Pat” Stryker, a kingmaker in Colorado politics, helped steer thousands of dollars to a congressional candidate who later lobbied for a $400 million loan guarantee for Stryker’s now-bankrupt solar company.
Stryker is a founding member of the Colorado Democracy Alliance (CoDA), a collection of wealthy liberals who led a Democratic takeover of the state by working around Colorado’s strict campaign finance laws. The group pours millions into liberal nonprofit groups that attack and overwhelm Republican candidates with money and negative advertising.
“They have a web of operations that is highly efficient, aimed at getting free negative publicity launched against any Republican official or organization,” said former Rep. Scott McInnis (R., Colo.).
One of CoDA’s beneficiaries was Rep. Betsy Markey (D., Colo.), a successful software executive and political neophyte when she defeated three-term incumbent Republican Rep. Marilyn Musgrave in 2008. Upon taking office, Markey helped secure a $400 million loan guarantee for Abound Solar, a green energy firm in which Stryker was a principal investor.
Abound failed in 2012, costing taxpayers an estimated $70 million. It never created the 2,000 jobs it promised for workers in Colorado and … READ THE REST (Pat Stryker: Colorado Crony; By Bill McMorris; Washington Free Beacon; 10/16/12 5:00 am)
Now, of course, he is familiar to most Coloradans as the US Representative from Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District, first elected in 2008. Polis, a self-made multi-millionaire, became involved in politics at a young age, and his first electoral office was on the State Board of Education. He is also gay, and the only openly gay parent in Congress at the current time. (Book Review – The Blueprint: How the Democrats Won Colorado (and Why Republicans Everywhere Should Care); By Richard; To Advance Freedom; 1/10/14)
Here are some interesting tidbits on Polis from Left Wing blogger Gawker:
As an 18-year-old, he traveled to Russia and made money trading privatization vouchers — you know, the botched, scandal-ridden privatization which wrecked Russa’s (sic) economy and led to the domination of the economy by ex-KGB oligarchs. Next stop: Silicon Valley!
In October 1999, right before the first dotcom crash, Polis, then known as Jared Polis Schutz, sold Bluemountain.com, his family’s online greeting-cards website, to Excite@Home for $780 million, including $350 million in cash that Excite couldn’t really spare. Excite sold it for $35 million in September 2001, and filed for bankruptcy a month later. People still talk about it as one of the most spectacular cashouts (sic) of the dotcom boom.
He later sold ProFlowers, an online florist, to John Malone’s Liberty Media. (All told, he’s started a dozen companies.)
He used the cash to buy his way into politics, getting elected to the Colorado State Board of Education (and changing his name to Jared Schutz Polis, “to honor his mother’s maiden name”).
That shift has been going on at least since 2004 when four rich liberals, Tim Gill, Rutt Bridges, Jared Polis, and Pat Stryker, decided to fund the Colorado Model, a low-profile strategy deliberately designed to turn “red states blue” according to Erik Erikson, a blogger at Redstate.com. As explained by Erikson, the Colorado Model is “one of the left’s most effective stratagems … when combined with the tactics of Saul Alinsky and his disciples, the Colorado Model is akin to a Soviet platoon armed with AK-47s mowing down a militia armed with slingshots.” (Bold text by this Blog Editor – Reaping the Whirlwind: the Colorado Model and Gun Control; By Bob Adelmann; New American; 2/20/13)
Tim Gill is is (sic) a multi-millionaire hardcore homosexual activist in Colorado who funds pro-homosexual candidates in legislative races in order to push pro-gay and sexual-radical causes across America. These are direct donations from Gill; according to reports he also funnels money to candidates through others. If you don’t know about Tim Gill, you need to find out. Read articles: HERE and HERE and HERE. … READ THE REST (Tim Gill; from EarsToHear.net)
Tim Gill is the most influential gay donor most people have never heard of.
The software entrepreneur has spent the last two decades working to advance LGBT rights, often through alliances with both Republicans and Democrats. He founded “Outgiving,” a political donors conference that is the gay rights version of the progressive Democracy Alliance, only with a bipartisan twist.
Gill, a Democrat who is estimated to be worth more than $400 million, has worked closely with leaders such as Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-New York) as well as mega-donors such as Republican Paul Singer and Democrat Laura Ricketts. He was a major force behind the strategy that led New York state to legalize gay marriage in 2011. He was also a top player in the Iowa Supreme Court fight to overturn a ban on same-sex marriage, helping to protect the seats of Democratic state legislators so that the successful legal win would be preserved by lawmakers.
“The goal is always political. The question is what laws can we get passed and the difference is that we’re switching focus to a lot of conservative states,” Gill said of the conference, which began in its political form nearly a decade ago and which draws more than 200 people by invitation only.
The political gathering’s strength lies in its push to encourage individual donors to give en masse to specific candidates and causes, going beyond the partisan prism, Gill said. The effort connects different types of groups — including those that are not typically part of the progressive coalition, such as Chambers of Commerce in various states — with individual donors.
After 2004, Gill, founded the Gill Action Fund, and met with LGBT groups to lay out a 10-year plan — the type of thing Gill says he typically dislikes, preferring shorter-term campaigns — to legalize gay marriage, civil unions or domestic partnerships in 12 to 15 states before going to the federal level either through Congress or the courts. That came to fruition, with gay marriage legal in 17 states now and the U.S. Supreme Court making key related rulings last year.
Rutt Bridges, is a behind the scenes politico who is also a self-made millionaire. He created software that benefits energy companies by showing them where to drill. Using his financial resources, he created a think tank (Bighorn Center for Public Policy) with a political arm called Bighorn Action. While these two entities ceased operations in 2006, I have no doubt they served as a template for the political organizations later created by the Gang of Four. (Book Review – The Blueprint: How the Democrats Won Colorado (and Why Republicans Everywhere Should Care); By Richard; To Advance Freedom; 1/10/14)
Oil drilling technology pioneer Rutt Bridges used his nonpartisan think tank to establish himself as a centrist in Colorado politics, a reputation that led to his candidacy for the United States Senate and governor’s office.
However, according to a former staffer, the “nonpartisan” Bighorn Center for Public Policy was a smokescreen for Bridges’s membership in the Colorado Democracy Alliance (CoDA)—a “gang of four” hyper-liberal millionaires and billionaires that swept Democrats into office using shady campaign tactics.
“On paper, the Bighorn Center was supposedly nonpartisan—when it got started in 1999 it had people from both sides of the aisle,” said Isaac Smith, who interned for the Center in 2006. “I thought I was going to a nonpartisan think tank; they didn’t wear their extremism on their sleeve—only the lefty groups knew what the deal was.”
Bridges made tens of millions of dollars creating 3-D mapping software that revolutionized oil drilling.
That gave him the means to seek the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate in 2004 and enter the governor’s race in 2005. His short time on the stump earned him a reputation as an “extreme self-financer” for using his personal funds to drive his candidacy. He abandoned both efforts, remarking in August 2005 that he’d “rather work outside the elective political system to make a difference with my life.”
By the summer of 2005, however, Bridges had already used his fortune to change Colorado’s political landscape, pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars into liberal nonprofit organizations unencumbered by the disclosure laws and strict contribution limits politicians in the state are subject to. In 2004, his money helped Democrats win control of the state legislature for the first time in 30 years.
Bridges attended the national Democracy Alliance’s first meeting in April 2005, four months before pledging to “work outside the elective political system” to enact change.
Bridges has withdrawn from political life in recent years. He closed Bighorn in 2006 and later left both CoDA and the Democracy Alliance. He has not made a federal political contribution since 2010, after giving more than $34,000 to Democratic candidates between 2007 and 2010, including $4,600 to Barack Obama.
However, his son Jeff continues to be involved. He served as an aide for Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and his brother Rep. John Salazar. After earning a Masters in Divinity from Harvard University, he became PAC director for the liberal Vote Your Values PAC.

Danny Jeffrey wrote a convincing essay connecting cigarette smoking and constitutionally insured Liberty. Below is the comment I left to that essay (if indeed it posts) entitled “Seeking answers to today’s issues.” You may understand my thoughts better if you read his essay.
I didn’t read all the comments Danny, but Wow! You certainly got a big response.
Anyway, you are one of my favorite polemicists. That said, you might be disappointed to learn that I am a non-smoker. And in my later years I have been somewhat militant about non-smoking.
Before you stone me you should be aware that my Grandmother whom I lived with was a lung cancer survivor twice. The second time she quite – cold turkey. I have to admit Grandma’s cold turkey was not a pleasant experience for me. Grandma was more than a bit grouchy about very simple matters. Going cold turkey affected her health in other ways. Cold turkey meant overeating to take her mind off the nicotine cravings. By her mid-70s she became a diabetic and died of a heart attack.
My Uncle was also a butt-hacker. When he was in his early 60s he became the unlucky recipient of lung cancer – and died 3 months later.
As I said my Grandmother was a smoker. Consequently my Grandfather was also a smoker. He actually smoked Camels without filters. He also quit cold turkey. Mysteriously he did not turn into a nicotine deprived monster as my Grandma did. He died in his mid-80s natural causes. I should mention he smoked from his teenage days until his early-50s when he quit cold turkey. Just guessing – it seems then he smoked nearly 40 years and was nicotine free for about 30 years.
My Grandmother was about 12 years older than my Grandfather and it was her 2nd marriage (Yup, she robbed the cradle). Grandma smoked Raleighs. Since I was perched in the backseat when Mom drove and Grandma sat in the front passenger seat, the cigarette smoke flowed toward the back. Yup, car sickness was a frequent issue for me. A smoke filled living room was something I learned to tolerate but never enjoyed. In the present I often wonder how I trained myself to tolerate smoke filled rooms. Now-a-days being in a room that has been smoke filled nauseates me.
Nonetheless there was a silver lining to Grandma’s chain smoking days. Raleighs had reward coupons. We acquired many fun things over the years because Grandma was also a compulsive coupon saver. I still have fond memories of the excellently made croquette set those coupons delivered to us. I owned that croquette set through my own children’s childhood and teen years – long after Grams went to live with Jesus.
Here’s some irony for you Danny. You went to Washington State to visit a Conservative friend, right? I grew up in a small college town in Central Washington that had about 10,000 people living in it when I was a kid and about 14,000 by the time I graduated and moved to Oklahoma to attend a Bible School. For a little more background the small town was roughly divided between the College students (now University) and the local townspeople. I was one of the townspeople. As you can guess the townspeople tended to lean toward Conservatism even if it was unwittingly. And the College was quite liberal especially a significant number of the students were from the Seattle side of the Cascades that roughly divides Washington State.
Now I say unwitting “Conservatives” because most of the townspeople (including my family) acted like Conservatives in values but voted Democrat because of the false perception that Franklin Delano Roosevelt saved America from the Depression. Yup, I was one of those Baby Boomers that had the deprivations of the Depression history drilled into my childhood. Wasted food was a corporal punishment crime and my Mom walked uphill in the snow both ways to school.
Conservatism for me was thus a transition from the kind of Liberal Democrats that were around in my teen days to becoming a Born Again Christian at age 20. In the transition I played with Libertarianism for a while under the influence of Ayn Rand then embracing Conservatism. The Liberal Dems in Washington State in my teen days would be described as Neocons today. Socially Center-Liberal and with a big pro-military stand to fight Communism. My last Dem Senator Hero was Henry ‘Scoop’ Jackson.
So much for the small town background.
Sooo – cigarette smoke made me nauseated as a kid and really does now as a person a couple of years away from 60. I am one of those people Danny that you would be upset with. I am very gratified that non-smoking areas has increased exponentially since my childhood days.
On the other hand leave it to you to expose the hypocrisy of my gratitude. I would be one that rails against homosexual activists and atheist activists trampling on the First Amendment Rights of Christians. I would be the one exploding because a school banned a patriotic or Christian oriented shirt but saw no problem no problem in pressing anti-Christian homosexual acceptance and teaching the ways of Allah for multicultural understanding. AND yet your point that a smoker exercise in Liberty is hampered by regulating space where free will should occur when there is no harm to others.
Danny I would be one telling you that each cancer stick you smoke is another coffin nail in your life. But being your 70s that argument is pretty ridiculous to make. Danny I am assuming you are lung cancer free so telling you of the dangers of smoking to your lungs does seem a bit ludicrous. It has to sound a bit like telling a fish he might drown for spending so much time in the water.
In your sharing I was quite amused how you segued from smoke-Liberty to Americans losing their patriotic heritage to stand for Truth, Justice and the American Way or die trying. Frankly that is how you convinced me that smoke-Liberty is as important American Liberty. The old saying that goes: “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it,” (Voltaire) is becoming a lost train of thought of in America’s divisive political spectrum.
Danny you have convinced me of your butt-hacker Liberty to smoke and I will die to defend that right. Wait, I’m an overweight dude on a disability. Will you defend my right to be a fatso to the death?
Just kidding. I’ll defend your right to smoke. Probably I won’t try dying though. As you pointed out in your essay there is a good chance I will fall victim to being overweight long before the last coffin nail hits your casket.
Danny since I now defend your smoke-Liberty, if our paths should ever cross perhaps you might give me a heads up before you light up. I got to tell ya man, smoking really does produce a nauseating feeling for me.
Result of Jew-Hatred – My GOD Don’t Forget!
After Hitler’s Holocaust was discovered by the winning Allied
armies, the West experienced a collective guilt on how badly Jews were treated in a horrific Jew-hatred manner. In Ari Bussel’s essay he expresses the very legitimate concern that the pre-Holocaust days are here again – even in America.
When Jews Stand Silent
By Ari Bussel
Sent: 10/21/2014 6:23 PM
Allow me to start with a bit of family history.
During WWII, among the Allied forces, my grandfather was in General Anders’ (Polish) army fighting the Nazis. At the end of the War he was in Italy. After the war, my grandfather joined his brother in NY and remarried (my grandmother had been murdered by the Nazis).
To his last day, my grandfather lived on the Upper West Side, whereas his brother lived on the Upper East Side. NYC was his favorite city, a magical place with much to do. He regularly attended operas and concerts at the Lincoln Center. I remember when my father and I were packing his things, after my grandfather passed away, and found stacks of programs of performances he had attended. We may still have some of them.
My grandfather is buried in NY, where he is likely turning in his grave, at how—after seventy-five years—we have come full circle backward. Not just in Europe, but in the USA as well.
Today, everything is permissible, even in America. Acceptable now, first and foremost, is Jew-hatred.
Once we knew how to differentiate between right and wrong, good and evil. Today, the lines are blurred, terrorists become “freedom fighters,” and the blame always lies with someone else, most readily and easily with Israel and the Jews.
Metropolitan Opera of the pro-terrorist, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel opera “Death of Klinghoffer.”
Tonight at the Met is the opening night of Death of Klinghoffer. So what is all the fuss about? “Munich” humanized the terrorists who targeted and murdered Israeli athletes because they were Jewish. Its director was none other than Schindler’s List director, Steven Spielberg, himself a Jew.
Many movies in recent years that vilify Israel and glorify her enemies are made in Israel and are supported by funding from the Israeli government.
So why is everyone up in arms against yet another such occasion, one that happens to be at my grandfather’s favorite city and performing arts center?
Those who do not understand the premise we must fight all these instances may stop here. Others will dwell into the following questions:
* Who stands up and takes action?
* What type of action is sufficient to effect change?
* Can we even fight modern-day anti-Semitism?
I will attempt to answer these three questions.
Good people are expected to fight back but seldom do. A major shock to the system is necessary before they spring to action and for its effects to remain etched in memory. The Holocaust was a drastic shock and its effects lasted some seven decades but now have almost faded away.
Short of a major system-wide tsunami, as we learned time and again, “money talks.” To effect change, one must get to the major source of funding. Then those at the helm pay attention. For change to be meaningful and lasting, rather than passing, pressure must be sustained.
Thus the call for major funders of the NY Met to withhold their donations must be a consideration.
Experience, though, teaches us that such efforts rarely work. Ha’Aretz, Israeli leading intellectual paper, is still up and running, none of its advertisers has backed off, despite its working tirelessly to bring about the fall of the Jewish state.
Not only in Israel. The NY Times, LA Times and other major papers still exist and their main advertisers (many Jewish) have not backed off, despite a systematic anti-Israeli approach.
And this experience extends well beyond the printed media.
To effect change, there has to either be a major groundswell or the major benefactors behind an operation must take a stand (i.e. stop the flow of funds) and remain firm on their convictions. Either one will create the necessary shock effect. Yet, this is as rare as a major earthquake here in California.
There are instances when we must stand up and take action, not just hope that a storm will pass and everything be forgotten. These shocks have positive effects, for they force us to change the status quo. And what is happening today is not good, by any stretch of one’s imagination.
So allow me to highlight a friend, who is now on a plane to NYC, to participate tonight in the demonstration in front of the Lincoln Center. She will be sitting in a wheelchair this evening at the Klinghoffer Demonstration against the Met. It is inspiring, but not enough.
Several years ago, a professor from Ben Gurion University, the head of the Poli-Sci department, wrote an op-ed that was published by the Los Angeles Times. It was not personal musings, rather the professional presentation of a person very established in this field. He called to “Boycott Israel.”
Jews were outraged. The University President flew in to Los Angeles to meet with the major donors who were very upset. She refused to meet with anyone else; they were of no concern or value to her. The major donors were appeased, and nothing much has changed since. Post-Zionism is alive and well at BGU.
The Jews have persuaded themselves that everything is OK, someone else is to blame (clearly noise created by some troublemakers) and there is nothing the university president can actually do. Life continues.
The same happened when J Street, the self-proclaimed “pro-Israel, pro-peace” (anti-Israel, undermine-AIPAC) organization came into being. The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles was gravitating toward supporting it, until Newt Becker went from one friend to another (all major donors) and made it an issue.
Then, and only then, the Federation paid attention.
Promises were made. The Federation resorted to legalities and ultimately confused the issue. “It depends what ‘supporting’ really means,” they said, and the shenanigans continued. United we stand, divided we fall, and J Street continues to bring about the fall of the walls of Jerusalem. Alas, it happened before, we will survive it again.
Newt’s actions were a necessary, but not a sufficient condition.
In Orange County, activist Dee Sterling has been fighting the Olive Tree Initiative (and the world-wide travel intifada) for years. Philanthropist Dr. Shelley Ventura Cohen arranged several meetings at the Federation here in LA, alongside a major contributor. The president of the Federation had to make time for these meetings, but not much has resulted. Shelley passed away, the philanthropist spends her time abroad and the Olive Tree Initiative goes from strength to strength, having expanded now to numerous other universities.
Major Met Donors Deafening Silence Is An Operatic Kristallnacht- If Bloomberg, Annenberg, Neubauer, Toll Bros. Spoke Out, Anti-Semitic “Klinghoffer” May Have Been Cancelled
Mort Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, in a press release this morning, calls the Deafening Silence of major Met donors “an Operatic Kristallnacht.” He names names – Bloomberg, Annenberg, Neubauer, Toll Bros – and points out that had they spoken out, the anti-Semitic Klinghoffer may have been cancelled.
He recognizes a necessary, but not necessarily sufficient condition.
But I am a simple, practical person, and I know that ZOA’s calls will not bear fruit. Not yet at least. Tomorrow is another day, and life continues. Today’s “noise” becomes tomorrow’s history, thus must be relegated to oblivion. That is exactly what we learned with the President, the Democrats and Benghazi. The 2012 “Spontaneous” attacks did happen, whether because of a video or not. “Who really cares? Get on with your lives, Republicans, you are just starting trouble” has been the prevailing attitude.
ZOA’s call is a call to action. It follows James 2:14-26. It expects the obvious, which is simply too much.
The Annenbergs were Jewish, but their main focus was the arts. Alas, Jews in the USA were not very concerned about their brethren in Europe. Life here was somewhat isolated. Life was good.
That was then. It evolved into an anti-Israel sentiment coming first and foremost from American Jewry today. It is well concealed under layers of “just criticism of Israel,” “disagreeing with policies,” “love and strength to tell the truth,” “the overarching community tent,” and on and on as a never-ending list of excuses that permits Israel hatred to blossom.
A few years ago, Wallis Annenberg opened her “Space for Photography” in Century City with a National Geographic exhibit about water.
Covered with the most beautiful dress of “National Geographic” and a brand new “museum,” hatred became the new truth. Israel became the guilty party. 20% of the exhibit was focused on Israel. But rather than highlighting all the good Israel has bestowed on the region and the world in terms of water (including conservation, reclamation, desalination, development of drought resistant crops, drip irrigation, regional cooperation and assistance), Israel was highlighted and portrayed as the wasteful thief and the source of all evil.
Reality was obfuscated in favor of baseless attacks and a most amazing portrait of lies, most befitting the new Annenberg Space.
Apparently, this sells. More accurately, it is acceptable. It spreads like bacteria on a Petri dish.
Where were the Israelis and the Jews? Where were the State of Israel and her local representatives? How about other sane and rational people?
Were there any demonstrations? Was the exhibit scrapped or corrected? Annenberg definitely has the clout to achieve it, had she only wanted.
Some people remember work done “behind the scenes.” Alas, the exhibit continued as planned, and the many thousands of visitors were exposed to one of the worst viruses ever to dwell on earth – the purest form of anti-Semitism, blood libels distilled to such high proof, their potent strength alone is dangerous.
Wallis Annenberg was being courted at that time for money for the new Beverly Hills Cultural Center. Money, it seems, is the solution for all the world’s ills. One would ignore evil for a payment of $25 million. Oh, how satisfying.
Israelis in Israel were busy too, and the National Geographic special issue was allowed to stand, thus remaining a testament to a new reality. Students in the near future will study water shortage and its aftermaths, and they can always refer back to an amazing pictorial presentation, accompanied by some of the most horrific lies; “it is all Israel’s fault.”
Likewise, the President of Iran’s Conference on the Holocaust-that-never-was also remains a factual resource for future generations, of history that was re-written while the world, Jews and Gentiles alike, stood silent.
Mort, salvation will not come from Wallis Annenberg.
From her fellow mega-donors?
My experience has taught me that until something affects them directly, we can talk and shout until we fall exhausted out of breath, and nothing will happen.
A case in point: A member of the Board of Regents for the University of California system was kind enough to hear my ranting about what was happening at the UC Irvine campus with dangerous activities of the Muslim Student Union, the threat to Jewish students and the implications to all of us.
She was kind not to me, but to a close friend of hers, whose guest I was year after year after his wife died.
Except, nothing was internalized. I talked and was gently dismissed as the “Meshugane” (the crazy one, not really in possession of his faculties).
This continued until Israeli Ambassador to the US, Prof. Oren, came to give a talk at UCI. Until the pressure on Jewish students and others intensified so much that people started taking notice. Everything I had described time and again happened, and everyone was shocked at the “discovery.”
It happened right under their watch. They enabled it.
We can continue with other examples. I seem to carry a bag full of them. But allow me to return to my own family history.
I am the son and grandson of Holocaust survivors. Not much was left of our family, and all of us here and now have an obligation: Not to Forget.
When we remember, we know that our true mission is to protect Israel, thus protecting the Jewish people.
Remembering, the essence of “Never Again,” does not translate to the fanfare usually connected with “remembering” the Holocaust. Rather, it is off the well-traveled road that we venture.
In Israel, one started “remembering” the survivors when the deplorable living conditions of many were highlighted for all to see. It shamed Israel into action.
While survivors are struggling in their last years, there is a robust and thriving “Claims Conference.” Many years ago, they told my mother they did not reach her mother’s year of birth. They did not reach it until my grandmother passed away. But throughout the years, they enjoy their salaries, benefits and other perks, like clockwork. It became their “entitlement,” not the survivors’.
For those who wonder, not much has changed with the Claims Conference.
In Los Angeles, I regularly pass the statue of Raoul Wallenberg and stop to salute. The plaque reads “he restored our faith in humanity,” signed “the survivors.” (For those who may want to read more, here is the link to “The Angel of Faith” I wrote in 2010: http://newsblaze.com/story/20100404083512buss.nb/topstory.html)
Not long ago, LA Councilmember Paul Koretz held a major event at the intersection where the statue stands. There were numerous Holocaust survivors in attendance, yet not a single child from all the religious day schools or the high school (Fairfax High) just a few blocks walking distance from there.
No one bothered to clean the square where the statue stands, daily the sleeping place for homeless people.
The act of “remembering” has to translate to action, and that action must be meaningful. I found the ceremony lacking, since it did not translate into meaningful action. No one thought of bringing children, and I stood at shock and wept.
Somewhat like the neighborhood itself, once the heart of Jewish LA, turned into a heap of eateries and trendy t-shirt, shoes or skateboard stores, the generation of survivors is slowly disappearing into the memory bins of history. A sad story, for who may remember the past? Should we even bother with it? Will it ultimately be rewritten out of existence completely?
My grandfather, Newt, Shelley, Atara, Roz’s mother and so many others are up there, in council, looking down, advocating on behalf of the Jewish people. Hoping now is the time for all sane, rational beings to ponder.
They understand well when good people stand silent, evil is triumphant, and tonight will be no different.

American Laws for American Courts was crafted to protect American citizens’ constitutional rights against the infiltration and incursion of foreign laws and foreign legal doctrines, especially Islamic Shariah Law. READ ENTIRETY FOR DETAILS (American Laws for American Courts; Infidel Task Force)
Americans in individual American States have begun to recognize that there are elements in Islam – particularly Sharia Law – that are totally incompatible with the Freedom, Liberty and Rights assured to us by the U.S. Constitution.
Since the U.S. Constitution enshrines Religious Freedom in the First Amendment Muslim apologists started to rail against State laws that expressly use the phrase “Sharia Law” to keep American Courts from using Islamic concepts jurisprudence precedents. This happened in Oklahoma when over 70% of the voters passed a law preventing Sharia from being used as a legal precedent in State Courts in 2010. Due largely by a lawsuit filed by Hamas-Muslim Brotherhood connected Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Federal Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange ruled the Oklahoma SQ 755 unconstitutional in 2013 because the law singled out a specific religion. Under Governor Fallin’s direction, rather than pursuing further appeals Oklahoma chose another legal path using the wording of ALAC to specify that OK State Courts cannot use any foreign laws as a legal precedent in rendering decisions. This wisely expands the anti-Sharia focus to include Left Wing agendas that Obama might promote via the auspices of the United Nations and overseas Court proceedings. By August 2013 the OK Senate approved the ALAC wording 40-3 and the OK House approved it 85-7. Governor Mary Fallin then promptly made the ALAC official with her signature. Take that you weaselly Radical Muslims pretending to be Moderate!
The Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi inspired Wahhabi lobbyist are still trying to exploit the U.S. Constitution to make unconstitutional portions of Sharia acceptable in the USA. Those Muslim apologists have been joined by American Leftists either deluded that multiculturalism is good or use Islam to fight America’s Christian heritage via cultural dilution.
After looking at snail-like slow understanding in America that Islam is a threat, I have to share what I consider some astounding news from the West European nation of Austria. In case you have had your head in the sand – partly due to the failure of the American media – the growing Muslim minority in Western Europe are essentially becoming successful in forcing nations to accept Islamic cultural styles as a part of Europe’s fabric of society. One can hear that the UK, France, Germany, Sweden and Norway to name a few nations have gone out of their way politically to enforce multiculturalism in their society to the point that Muslim-Sharia enclave-zones and even Sharia Law accepted as the rule of law to be enforced in regard to Muslims and to favor Muslims in disputes with non-Muslims.
This European socio-political practice is multiculturalism taken to an insane level of destroying their Western heritage.
The German-speaking nation of Austria is about to embark on a new rule of law path to begin to emphasize the cultural heritage of Austria over the imported Islamic culture. In this case one can say ALAC can be an acronym for Austria Laws for Austrian Courts. This is huge because not too long ago Austria prosecuted and convicted an Austrian politician for hate-speech in speaking the truth about Islam. Of course the Muslim minority is outraged in Austria because of the potential of ending Islam’s favored status in a European nation that still emphasizes multiculturalism over real Liberty and heritage.
Soeren Kern writing for the Gatestone Institute shares the details of this potential Austrian new heritage protection via the rule of law designed to thwart Radical Islam.
Austria: Civil Law vs. Sharia Law
By Soeren Kern

Austria has emerged as a major base for radical Islam and as a central hub for European jihadists to fight in Syria.
The proposed revisions would, among other changes, regulate the training and hiring of Muslim clerics, prohibit the foreign funding of mosques, and establish an official German-language version of the Koran to prevent its “misinterpretation” by Islamic extremists.
Muslims would be prohibited from citing Islamic sharia law as legal justification for ignoring or disobeying Austrian civil laws.
Leaders of Austria’s Muslim community counter that the contemplated new law amounts to “institutionalized Islamophobia.”
Official statistics show that nearly 60% of the inhabitants of Vienna are immigrants or foreigners. The massive demographic and religious shift underway in Austria, traditionally a Roman Catholic country, appears irreversible.
The Austrian government has unveiled a sweeping overhaul of the country’s century-old “Islam Law” that governs the legal status of Austria’s Muslim community.
The proposed revisions—which are aimed at cracking down on Islamic extremism in Austria—would regulate the training and hiring of Muslim clerics, prohibit the foreign funding of mosques, and establish an official German-language version of the Koran, among other changes.
The government says the modifications would give Muslims legal parity with other religious groups in Austria. But the leaders of Austria’s Muslim community counter that the contemplated new law amounts to “institutionalized Islamophobia.”
The updated Islam Law (Islamgesetz) was presented as a draft bill to parliament on October 2 and overhauls the current law, which dates back to 1912.
The original law was brought into being to help integrate Muslim soldiers into the Habsburg Army after the Austro-Hungarian Empire annexed Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1908. The law recognized Islam as a religious community in Austria, and allowed Muslims to practice their religion in accordance with the laws of the state.
After the Austro-Hungarian Empire collapsed in the aftermath of World War I, the number of Muslims in Austria was reduced to just a few hundred people. After World War II, however, Austria’s Muslim population increased rapidly with the arrival of “guest workers” from Turkey and the Balkans in the 1960s, and refugees from Bosnia in the 1990s.
The Muslim population in Austria now exceeds 500,000 (or roughly 6% of the total population), up from an estimated 150,000 (or 2%) in 1990. The Muslim population is expected to reach 800,000 (or 9.5%) by 2030, according to recent estimates.
Official statistics show that nearly 60% of the inhabitants of Vienna, the capital and largest city of Austria, are immigrants or foreigners.
The massive demographic and religious shift underway in Austria, traditionally a Roman Catholic country, appears irreversible. In Vienna, for example, Muslim students now outnumber Catholic students at middle and secondary schools. Muslim students are also on the verge of overtaking Catholics in Viennese elementary schools.
At the same time, Austria has emerged as a major base for radical Islam. A June 2014 report by the Austrian intelligence agency [BVT] warned of the “exploding radicalization of the Salafist scene in Austria.” Salafism is an anti-Western ideology that seeks to impose Islamic sharia law.
Austria has also emerged as a central hub for European jihadists seeking to fight in Syria, because Austria’s geographic location provides easy access to land routes through the Balkans.
In an interview with Austrian Public Radio Ö1-Morgenjournal, the Austrian Minister for Integration and Foreign Affairs, Sebastian Kurz, said the rapid rise of Islam in Austria has rendered the old Islam Law obsolete. A new law is needed, he said, to stipulate more clearly the rights and responsibilities of Muslims living in the country.
From now on, according to Kurz, Muslims residing in Austria will be expected to adhere to Austrian values and to acknowledge the primacy of Austrian law over Islamic Sharia law. In practice, he said, this means that Muslims would be prohibited from citing Islamic law as legal justification for ignoring or disobeying Austrian civil laws. Sharia law has “no place” in Austria, he stressed.
The new law would regulate at least a dozen separate issues, including relatively non-controversial matters such as Muslim holidays, Muslim cemeteries, Muslim dietary practices and the activities of Muslim clergy in hospitals, prisons and the army.
More significantly, however, the bill seeks to limit the religious and political influence of foreign governments within the Austrian Muslim community by prohibiting foreign countries—presumably Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the Arab Gulf states—from financing Islamic centers and mosques in Austria.
The legislation also seeks to prevent the growth of a parallel Islamic society in Austria by regulating mosques and requiring clerics to be trained exclusively at Austrian universities. The new law would require Muslim groups to terminate the employment of clerics who have criminal records or who are deemed to pose a threat to public safety.
The new restrictions—including an employment ban for foreign clerics in Austria—would apply especially to Turkey: 65 of the 300 Muslim clerics working in Austria are Turkish civil servants whose salaries are being paid for by the Turkish government’s Religious Affairs Directorate, the Diyanet.
Muslims leaders in Austria say that in the absence of foreign funding, many mosques in Austria would have to be “closed immediately” because they are not financially viable apart from outside support. Moreover, they argue, the prohibition of foreign funding violates the constitution because the same restrictions are not being applied to Christians or Jews.
The foreign funding restrictions, however, do not appear to apply to the Vienna-based King Abdullah International Center for Inter-Religious and Inter-Cultural Dialogue. Critics say the multi-million-dollar institution, which was inaugurated in November 2012, is an effort by Saudi Arabia to establish a permanent “propaganda center” in central Europe from which to spread the anti-Western Wahhabi sect of Islam throughout the rest of Europe.
The new Islam Law also requires the Austrian Muslim community to agree on a standardized German-language translation of the Koran, the Hadiths and other Islamic religious texts. The government has argued that an official version of the texts would prevent their “misinterpretation” by Islamic extremists.
“There are countless translations, countless interpretations,” Kurz told public radio Ö1. “We will be pushing for this vigorously. It is also in the interest of the Muslim community that words are correctly interpreted and reproduced.”
However, Muslim leaders say it would be next to impossible for Sunnis, Shiites and Alawites to agree on a “correct” translation of the Koran. In any event, they say, the state cannot outlaw alternative translations.
A group called Muslim Youth of Austria [MJÖ] has described the new Islam Law as an “intolerable legal scandal” that seeks to “place the broad mainstream of Muslims either under state supervision, or to split them into weak and therefore meaningless groups.”
The president of the Austrian Islamic Community [IGGiÖ], Fuat Sanac, says the new law is “naïve” and treats Muslims as “second-class” citizens: “We do not agree with the draft Islam Law. It was presented to the public without our approval.”
Sanac has vowed to file an appeal with Austria’s constitutional court to stop the new law, which he says “risks humiliating” the country’s Muslim population.
Kurz maintains that the primary purpose of the new Islam Law is to establish the “primacy of national law over religious law.”
The government hopes the new law will be approved by Parliament in November and enter into force sometime in 2015. However, Muslim opposition to the initiative may mean that the 1912 version of the law will remain unchanged for the foreseeable future.

Dajjal has posted two comments on the post by Norma Zager entitled “Two Roads Converge for Mankind”. This particular post was located at my NCCR blog (I have two others). Norma’s essay very eloquently writes about the idiocy of tolerating the hate and violence that so often emerges from the theopolitical religion known as Islam.
Norma’s essay inspired some thoughts from Dajjal which is a pseudonym by a blogger that is quite the expert on the nuanced details inherent in Islam. Dajjal can be quite harsh in exposing Islam’s nature to an incredulous West. That is the obvious reason for a pseudonym. Sooo many Counterjihad writers exposing Islam are often the recipients of death threats and murders by adherents of –
cough – the religion of peace.
Often Dajjal writes about Islamic concepts as if the reader is on the same level of understanding that he possesses. And Dajjal in an oft times humorous fashion will use a play on words or the lack of capitalization to show disrespect for the religion that does not respect non-Muslim people and non-Muslim concepts that reject Islam. In the process of editing Dajjal’s comment I will endeavor to leave the wordplays intact and provide links to Islamic concepts that at least I have to look up to understand the context. Also the title of this post is derived by me based on my understanding of the Dajjal comment. Dajjal did not grace these important thoughts with his own title.
Expose Islam’s True Ideology
S**t impacts the blades as a consequence of one fatal error: tolerance of evil. We foolishly allowed Communists to hold high government office, even Vice President and to participate in nuclear research leading to the atomic bomb. Thus Russia was able to obtain deadly knowledge, construct their own destructive devices and share with China.
Because we let the enemy get the bomb, we dared not contest them directly when they attacked Korea by proxy. Neither could we confront China in Vietnam.
Vietnam held crucial classes in war and victory. We failed to learn the lessons of denial of sanctuary, seizing and holding territory and persistence.
We failed to apply those lessons in Afghanistan and Iraq, wasting precious blood and treasure for naught but show: the appearance of doing something.
Worse yet, we failed to learn the lesson of the Crusades, Poitiers, Lepanto [pp. 1 & 2] and Vienna. We vainly imagined that wars are won by killing men and destroying material, ignoring the ideas that drive those men to attack.
Only Allah has the right to be worshipped. Allah alone has the right to rule and govern, his legislative power is exclusive. Muslims must secure Allah’s rights by their swords, failing to make the endeavor condemns them to Hellfire. Jihad guarantees admission to Allah’s celestial bordello. While Muslims believe that s**t, heads will roll and blood will flow regardless of pinprick air attacks. Even if you decimate their ranks, the remnant will regroup, reproduce, rearm and resume their attacks in the fullness of time.
Victory will not be obtained without the complete destruction of Islamic Iman [Blog Editor: At first glance I thought “Iman” was a typo of Imam. Now I am not so sure. See HERE and HERE]. Open “The Quranic Concept of War” [PDF photocopy of original book] to page 58 and read through page 60 to obtain a clue.
We will pay the price of failure of Crusaders & colonizers to destroy Iman. We will pay the price for not nuking Islam off the face of the earth in the aftermath of the Accursed Abomination. It will be a high price in blood, treasure and grief.
If you believe that God commissioned you to conquer the world and establish his kingdom; if you believe that you will be blessed if you undertake the mission and damned if you don’t, what will you do. What are Muslims doing? Get a clue before it is too late, before Iran obtains nukes and delivery systems (See Also HERE).
Victory will be obtained only by some combination of apostasy and extinction. We can work on the apostasy part, making mujahideen extinct is the government’s duty.
Dajjal Thoughts Continue
The entire house of cards rests on the reputation of Kauthar, AKA Muhammad (See HERE and HERE – Blog Editor: These links are intended to show a positive theology of Islam; however if you view this with the idiocy of Muhammad being the perfect human there is little-to-zero positive), held up as the best and greatest of men. His sunnah reveals the truth which we need to popularize. Moe was demon possessed. He was suicidal. He was homicidal. He lusted after infants. He raped prisoners of war whom he made captive.
Dramatize the sunnah in a series of full length docu-dramas. Put them on large and small screens all over the world; show Muslims the truth about their role model.
The producer of “Innocence of Muslims” claims to have two hours in the can. Get it published and distributed. Ali Sina and Mossab Yusuf (SP?) have screenplays. At least one more is already on the shelf. Get them produced and distributed. Show Muslims exactly what they emulate and worship.

As a nation that is systematically being dismantled piece by piece by the Obama transformation agenda to turn the USA into a Socialist Western European style society favoring government-down defined forms of representative government, Free Speech and Religious Freedom. Under the Western European paradigm any speech that insults ungodly lifestyles or denigrates any religion that is specifically an antichrist political ideology is a hate-crime punishable by fines, incarceration and/or both.
This essay by Justin Smith addresses the Obama transformation. Justin correctly observes the American voters have placed America in this position believing the lofty lies of Leftist Democrats. It will only be the discernment of American voters that will end the Obama transformation that desires the termination of the Founding Fathers’ grand experiment that brought the greatest nation into existence the world has known to date.
Be Free Once More

Our Constitutional Republic, once a free republic, is failing through the ignorant, uneducated and ill-informed choices of its Congressmen, Senators and American voters, and it is also failing because many Americans are culpable and willful in their support of actions and policies that negatively impact America. Far too many Americans do not understand or do not care that Obama’s Siren’s call for the Progressive fundamental transformation of America is found nowhere in the principles that built America, and many do not care that this is being done by unconstitutional means.
There was a time when there existed fine, decent Democrats, liberal only in the classical sense, who loved America and worked for Her in a benevolent fashion. Senator Joe Lieberman (CT) was one such Democrat, who was a foreign policy hawk. Another such Democrat was Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson (WA _served from 1953-1983), who was a leading “anti-communist” hawk. But today, the Democratic Party and nearly all Democrats are ultra-socialist, right on the verge of being outright communists and fascists.
Democrats Kaye Hagan (NC), Mark Begich (Alaska), Mary Landrieu (LA), Mark Udall (CO), Jeanne Shaheen (NH) and many other Democrats are all currently distancing themselves from President Obama in preparation for the November 4th election. All of these Senators voted with Obama’s agenda 95% of the time, according to the Congressional Quarterly Roll Call calculators. Voting for any Democratic leader is voting for the Progressive Movement’s legislative agenda and Obama’s fundamental transformation of America.
For six years America has careened through a sluggish economy worsened by Democrat economic policies advocated by Obama that come straight from Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal. They didn’t work then and they haven’t worked today, as we find approximately 100 million Americans now receiving government assistance of some sort.
Democrat policies from Roosevelt’s era have been greatly expanded upon by the Progressives of Obama’s new marxofascist based Democratic Party, because dependent people equal an easily controlled population. Many Americans on welfare today could have been productive, if only they had been encouraged to be independent. But, their entire lives the Democrats so convinced them that they could not succeed under the free market system and Adam Smith’s Capitalism, which they never really tried. And this is immoral, but then immoral pretty well describes the entire Progressive platform of ideas.
Increasingly Americans are experiencing Progressive Democrats’ tyranny, just as in California where Democrat Governor Jerry Brown and a Democrat supermajority in the legislature seized control of all ground water supplies in the state this past September, under the guise of conservation and due to a drought of their own making. More of these Agenda 21 based regulations are due to go into effect nationally in November, despite efforts to block them (HR5078), and they are setting the stage for the biggest land grab in U.S. history, in terms of power over land use, at the hands of Progressive Democrat bureaucratic political hacks and unelected despots.
President Obama can only use an Executive Order to supplement previously existing law passed by Congress, not to make new law in his current manner. When Obama issues Executive Orders, such as the Dream Act, that go astray of Constitutional limits and when bureaucracies, such as the EPA, are able to bind Americans through regulations, not law, it is extra-legal. One also is denied their Constitutional rights if forced to arbitrate any disputed matter through a bureaucrat, as this places administrative power above the law, side-stepping the courts and judges.
Along with Obama’s boastful disregard for the Constitution, Obama and the Progressive Democrats have worked tirelessly to undermine Christianity and Our American Heritage, as witnessed by their support of homosexual “marriages” (nothing “gay” about it) and their assault on Hobby Lobby’s position regarding birth control. They don’t “mean well” and they don’t give a damn about America or anything outside their Progressive ideology.
Disagree with the Democrat divisive platform and the opposition is accused of hatred: If you oppose illegal immigration, you hate Hispanics. If you have concerns about Islam in America, you hate Muslims. If you oppose Affirmative Action, you must hate blacks. And if you oppose “gay” marriage, you must hate homosexuals – “well – hmmm?” One out of four ain’t bad. I’ll let Ya’ll figure it out. (Just joking folks – please, no hate mail).
Six years of Democratic failed policies have shown that voting for the Democratic Party is both foolish and dangerous for the nation. Our border patrol agents are used to nullify immigration law, allowing terrorists to cross our borders. The Justice Department now enforces U.S. law through race-based initiatives. Every vote for Obamacare and its death panels, the most destructive legislation in U.S. history, came from the Democratic Party. The Islamic State has set the Middle East ablaze due to Obama’s and Democratic support of the Muslim Brotherhood and Obama’s insistence on complete withdrawal from Iraq. And now, the incurable and deadly Ebola virus and previously eradicated diseases, like tuberculosis, are in America due Obama’s “open borders” policy and his ideological idiocy.
But isn’t this what Americans wanted after all – “Hope and Change”?
Americans themselves are largely responsible for their own misery. One hundred and eleven million eligible voters, 45%, stayed home in 2012, while 27.4% believed Obama’s lies and pie in the sky promises and voted for “free” handouts and government benefits. 25.3% voted to be left alone by the government.
Incompetence has become the rule at many of the highest levels of government and in private businesses. Corporations like GM now seek protections and monopolies. Obama’s and John Kerry’s bungling will soon ensure that Iran has nuclear ICBMs, while the U.S. space program is compromised by its reliance on Russian, an old enemy renewing its adversarial position. It takes 10-15 years now to build a bridge that used to take 3 years, because of environmental studies required by the EPA. It takes an average of seven years to get a mining permit. And $7.2 trillion of new Obama debt has the U.S. debt at $17.8 trillion, undermining our fiscal responsibility to future generations.
Friederich Hayek, renowned economist, once remarked that having “seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant (Hitler) has made our generation understand that to choose one’s government is not necessarily to secure one’s freedom.”
Thomas Jefferson, the third U.S. President, simply stated, “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people … They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”
Our Founding Fathers didn’t expect government to control every aspect of the American people’s lives, as Obama and the Progressives are now doing by using the IRS against political opponents and telling us what medical insurance we can purchase. The Founders had survived tyranny, and they wrote the Constitution as a promise to the American people that government would be kept out of our private lives. Nobody – not elected Progressive officials, not Obama – gets to dictate how we live our lives, and Americans can remain a free people, a republic, despite Obama’s numerous lawless edicts and threats of one man rule, by sending the message in November that WE are restoring Our U.S. Constitution.
