‘Change’ in Indo-US relations
OPED Thursday, January 29, 2009
Unlike in the past, Washington and Beijing may be on the same page on Pakistan and could join hands in restoring some kind of order in that country. For New Delhi, this will be a bitter pill to swallow, considering how prickly we have been in the past about the China-Pakistan axis against India. We must, therefore, prepare for ‘change’"

Predicting Obama’s Presidency
My Predictions for the New Obama “Presidency”.
by Kit Lange
Kit Lange is an Air Force veteran and military writer. Her blog, EuphoricReality.com, was named as one of the top 10 milblogs of the year.
Now that America has shown us all that affirmative action even works in politics, I’ve compiled a list of things that you can probably expect to happen. These predictions are 80% gleaned from information all of us have access to, and 15% gut instinct based on many years of research, historical study, and being glued to current affairs. The other 5% is just anger at my countrymen’s stupidity–I admit it.
- Israel will understand this election was the end of any type of assistance, military or otherwise, from the U.S., and will stop holding back their defense at the request of the American administration. Look for a first strike on Iran soon, as well as increased activity by the Israeli military in general. Israel is on her own now, and God help us all because of it.
- Websites and mass emails offering “free grants,” courtesy of the government and “Obama’s wealth redistribution.” Actually, this one’s a freebie, because I have an email with a date and timestamp of literally minutes after Obama was declared the winner, offering exactly that.
- Look for Iranian retaliation–against American targets. That goes doubly for other terrorist organizations. We just elected a man with the full endorsement of every major terrorist group in the world as leader of the free world. It’s the political equivalent of hiring a child molester to babysit your kids while you leave for the weekend. Not only is HE going to have fun with your child, but he’ll probably sit and watch while his friends come over and do it too.
- Look for far-left justices appointed to the Supreme Court, effectively tying up the entire government in a trifecta of liberal humanism, the buzzwords of which remain empty platitudes like “hope and change,” and the ultimate goal of which is socialism–and soon, sharia law.
- Military cases of troops being tried and convicted for killing the enemy in combat will continue to rise–and the conviction/plea-bargain rate will stay at nearly 100%, as the government seeks to use the best men and women this country has to offer as sacrificial lambs on the altar of global appeasement. Those brave and honorable men who currently reside in prison cells across the country, stripped of their rank, their careers, families, and their good name, will not taste free air again for many years. Their sacrifices and their stories will be forgotten by the general public, remembered only by those of us who continue to fight for them.
- Look for the slow but steady erosion of rights you have enjoyed for your entire lives–all the while being told it’s “for your own good.” Restrictions on gun ownership, home schooling, encouraged dependence on the ever-growing federal government. More nanny-state provisions will be put into place to protect the “disadvantaged” and the “poor,” (read: lazy, uneducated, unwilling to better themselves) even while groups like the unborn, the mentally handicapped, elderly, and terminally ill are slowly pushed toward euthanasia. Of course, this will be done with feel-good phrases like “death with dignity,” “not wanting to be a burden,” and “merciful release from suffering,” all of which ignore the basic fact that we are killing people without their consent for the “good of the people.” Before you tell me I’m crazy, let’s just remember that Barack Obama was the ONLY senator in the Illinois state senate to vote against providing medical care for babies who were inconsiderate enough to survive an abortion.. Also, look for taxes to go up. Yes, they’ll go up.
- You think the economy is bad now? Just wait. You’ll have the most expensive “free” health care ever. Bread lines aren’t just for Russians anymore. We have traded experience for color, freedom for slavery–and the irony is that the average American sheeple thinks their vote somehow righted an ancient wrong, somehow ENDED the spectre of slavery and ushered in some beautiful era of liberty. In reality, we are about to be less free than you ever thought possible.
I watched the faces of those crowded into the mob (excuse the pun) in Chicago. They stared at Obama like he was a god, an idol, a panacea to their every want and need. We have truly failed as a nation if we are at the point where we feel we must look to one man to take care of us all, to be our father figure and our sugar daddy. We have lost not only the “can-do” attitude of past generations, but the “MUST-do” attitude of our forefathers. We have allowed ourselves to become reduced from Patrick Henry’s proud cry of “liberty or death” to the sniveling, whining idea that we are owed something. We have gone from being the honorable defenders of freedom to being told we are the problem.
The eyes of Obama and McCain were also telling. McCain acted with class and grace in his concession speech, offering the most honorable response I’ve seen yet. I don’t agree with all of McCain’s positions, but it cannot be denied that the man has served his nation–at permanent and severe detriment to himself–for half a century. His eyes were clear and sincere, honest. His speech underlined the very reasons why, of the two men offered, he was hands down the better choice.
On the other hand, Obama’s eyes were cold, calculating. His manner was smug and still carried the arrogance he has always had. His facial expression was one of barely disguised disdain for everything people like me believe in. His body language was smooth, polished–too much so. He talked of patriotism as though it is a value he is familiar with–and yet, his horrifying attitude toward the country he now leads is as well-documented as his friendships with those who seek its demise. He is charismatic to those who don’t know what to look for, and he is inspiring to those who cannot or will not think for themselves. However, too many who voted for him are guilty of the most dangerous kind of hypocrisy. You see, we are told daily that we must not see color, just mankind. (We are all family, you know–or so we’re told.) And yet Barack Obama was handed the White House on a silver platter by a fawning media, a bevy of foreign donors (who, to this day and in violation of U.S. election laws, remain nameless and unaccounted for), and a populace who voted based on color instead of right and wrong–even in the face of the most damning evidence against a Presidential candidate in many years, perhaps ever.
It is said that the people receive the government they deserve. Sadly, I fear that’s correct. We have become complacent, unwilling to see the writing on the wall, content to frolic in the warm water without bearing to notice that it’s been getting hotter by the minute. We are two seconds from a rolling boil–and perhaps it is already too late.
So, liberals, enjoy your victory. Jump around. Have a party, file for your free grants. Scream “Gimme my handout!” and make fun of those of us who fought to make sure your “messiah” didn’t get access to the most powerful position in the world. Just remember when it all comes crashing down: You own the White House, the Congress, and soon the Supreme Court. You have no one to blame but yourselves for the mess you just created.
That is, those who voted for him. Interesting commentary. Time will tell.
Obama To Muslim World - “U.S. not your enemy”
Obama: U.S. not your enemy
first published at http://news.yahoo.com/s/politico/20090127/pl_politico/18016
The interview with the Dubai-based Al-Arabiya Network was a dramatic piece of public diplomacy aimed at capitalizing on the new American president's international popularity, though it balanced America's traditional commitment to Israel, whose security Obama called "paramount.'
"I have Muslim members of my family. I have lived in Muslim countries," Obama said, according to a White House transcript. "My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy."
The Al Arabiya interview, directed squarely at Muslims around the world, revived a vision of personal, symbolic international change that was in the air when Obama - with his far-flung family members, and complicated story - launched his campaign. It was a vision, and an aspect of his story, that the candidate buried when, in 2007, was forced to combat whispering campaigns about his own faith.
But by giving his first interview to the Arabic network, Obama signaled his continuing belief in his personal power as a symbol of America against the temptations of Islamic militancy. He even dismissed "bankrupt" ideas and policies that don't improve children's health care, jabbing at "nervous" Al Qaeda leaders in language that echoed his campaign against George W. Bush.
The occasion for this interview was the departure of Obama's special envoy, George Mitchell, to the Middle East, and a more aggressive and optimistic approach to that conflict than some argued that the circumstances dictated. The president offered no timeline for peace, but a firm view that a Palestinian state remains within reach.
"What I told him is start by listening, because all too often the United States starts by dictating — in the past on some of these issues — and we don't always know all the factors that are involved," Obama said. "What we want to do is to listen, set aside some of the preconceptions that have existed and have built up over the last several years. And I think if we do that, then there's a possibility at least of achieving some breakthroughs."
Obama's interview was marked by attempts to sympathize with the concerns of ordinary Muslims, particularly on the question of living conditions in the West Bank. But he sought a conciliatory tone throughout the interview, at one point avoiding even restating American policy, and his own platform, than an Iranian nuclear weapon is plainly unacceptable.
"Will the United States ever live with a nuclear Iran? And if not, how far are you going in the direction of preventing it?" asked the interviewer, Al Arabiya Washington Bureau Chief Hisham Melhem.
Obama responded only generally, expressing disapproval of an Iranian bomb but not the flat condemnation that is standard from American officials.
"You know, I said during the campaign that it is very important for us to make sure that we are using all the tools of U.S. power, including diplomacy, in our relationship with Iran," he said. "Now, the Iranian people are a great people, and Persian civilization is a great civilization. Iran has acted in ways that's not conducive to peace and prosperity in the region: their threats against Israel; their pursuit of a nuclear weapon which could potentially set off an arms race in the region that would make everybody less safe; their support of terrorist organizations in the past -- none of these things have been helpful."
During the campaign and transition periods, Obama's condemnations of an Iranian nuclear weapon were more direct: "[T]heir development of nuclear weapons would be unacceptable," Obama said on Meet the Press on December 7.
A senior Obama aide said Monday night that Obama had not changed his views on Iran.
Obama also signaled a move away from President Bush's confrontational, generalizing language. Melhem noted to Obama that "President Bush framed the war on terror conceptually in a way that was very broad, 'war on terror,' and used sometimes certain terminology that the many people -- Islamic fascism. You've always framed it in a different way, specifically against one group called al Qaeda and their collaborators."
"I think that you're making a very important point. And that is that the language we use matters," Obama replied. "[W]hat we need to understand is, is that there are extremist organizations -- whether Muslim or any other faith in the past -- that will use faith as a justification for violence. We cannot paint with a broad brush a faith as a consequence of the violence that is done in that faith's name.
"And so you will I think see our administration be very clear in distinguishing between organizations like al Qaeda -- that espouse violence, espouse terror and act on it -- and people who may disagree with my administration and certain actions, or may have a particular viewpoint in terms of how their countries should develop," he said. "We can have legitimate disagreements but still be respectful. I cannot respect terrorist organizations that would kill innocent civilians and we will hunt them down."
Obama's shift Monday was one of tone, not of policy, and he also affirmed America's support for Israel.
"Israel is a strong ally of the United States. They will not stop being a strong ally of the United States. And I will continue to believe that Israel's security is paramount," he said. "But I also believe that there are Israelis who recognize that it is important to achieve peace. They will be willing to make sacrifices if the time is appropriate and if there is serious partnership on the other side."
Obama's interview plan was made public only Monday afternoon, and the interview, which concluded just after 6:00 p.m., was distributed to reporters in the evening and embargoed for release at 11:00 p.m.
Asked why Al Arabiya had been granted the president's first interview, and aide said: "We want to communicate directly to the entire world America's new foreign policy."

Comments on Obama To Muslim World - “U.S. not your enemy”
Jerry Gordon, The Iconoclast, comment
It is significant that the first formal interview that Pres. Barack Hussein Obama gave was to Dubai-based Al-Arabiya. Notice that the interview done in the early evening, yesterday, was embargoed for release until 11 PM, EST? While touching on threads of his own Muslim origins and Muslim extended family while appealing to ordinary Muslims, Obama conveyed a sense that he was one of them and part of the ‘ummah’ - the community of believers. While stating that he will hunt down extremists that seek to destroy us of whatever religious stripe, Obama projects himself and his ’smartpower” diplomacy as being a furtherance of official dhimmitude, something that manifested itself in the second term of the Bush Administration that I wrote about in the New English Review-see “Bush and Islamofacists Detente in DC“.
By emphasizing that his special envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, will ‘listen’ is a message of appeal to Arab street and the Saudis about “peace’ flowing through Jerusalem with the establishment, if such can be had, of a Palestinian state, and an Israel walled up behind the ‘Auschwitz’ borders of the pre-1967 War Armistice line. By being ‘humble’ Obama has capitulated to the caterwauling of the Arab street and the Mullahs in Tehran pursuing their annihilationist nuclear project aimed at eradicating Israel, the Jewish state. Within less than one week following his inauguration, Obama has revealed his Middle East agenda. Israel is on the cusp of electing a new government on February 10th. We’ll see if the new government formed in the Knesset general election vote will send a telling message to Obama and the Muslim world that Israel will not be the ‘agnus dei’ (sacrificial lamb) to Militant Islam.

Comment by Gary:
“Americans are not your enemy.” Obama thinks that the Muslims hate the US because of American “colonialism” as he puts it. Has he ever studied the spread of Islam? It represents the greatest conquest of land and “souls” in human history.
“We want to listen” says Obama - sure, and once you have heard what they have to say, I wonder if Obama wants us to adopt their views to appease them to win their “friendship.”
Does Obama not realize that Islam has a perpetual and everlasting goal to destroy and replace the non-Muslim nations with their own Islamic dictatorships and their religion?
I have “listened” and the more I hear from them, the more obvious it becomes that there is no common ground and no way that they are prepared to compromise - though they are eager and longing for us to conform entirely to their views and way of life.

Comment by NormanF:
The man is a complete idiot. America’s enemies will have him for breakfast, lunch and dinner before long. They sense, not America’s goodwill and extended hand of friendship, but rather her weakness and her exhaustion in carrying on the war against them. And they will strike blows at her. All the sweet talk in the world have never altered one whit the nature of Islam.

Comment by gungfusifu:
oh dhimmitude here we come!! and how nieve it is to think that a two state solution will bring peace to Israel from her sworn enemies. people think that we can build bridges of understanding with our sworn enemies, but my father, a combat engineer in world war two built pontoon bridges that weren’t built for better understanding, they were built to carry tanks and infantry which were used to destroy the enemy, and after they were destroyed and finally surrendered, THEN we built bridges of understanding and made peace.

This is the Message to Moslems that Obama SHOULD have delivered:
Those of you who asked for it, now got, are getting, and will get just what you wanted.
Those of you who voted for him, deserve what is coming down on you.

President Obama made a surprise visit to the White House press corps Thursday night, but got agitated when he was faced with a substantive question.
Asked how he could reconcile a strict ban on lobbyists in his administration with a Deputy Defense Secretary nominee who lobbied for Raytheon, Obama interrupted with a knowing smile on his face.

President Barack Obama
by Paul Eidelberg
In his Inaugural Address, President Barack Obama declared that America is “a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus—and non-believers.” According to Islam, however, all non-Muslims are “non-believers” or “infidels.” Among such non-believers are all the signers of the American Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution!
Obama’s faux pas, if it may called that, is of world-historical significance. It is a portent of America’s decline. The day before his inauguration, Obama said he would bring the American people a new Declaration of Independence, one that will be free of petty thinking, prejudice, and bigotry. In view of such monumental arrogance, I dare say America will not survive Obama’s presidency. I therefore urge Jews in the United States to leave as soon as possible for Israel and hasten the ultimate ascendancy of the only God-bearing nation.
It is no accident that Obama’s father was a Muslim. Since Islam prescribes patrilineal descent, hundreds of millions of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims regard the President of the United States as one of their own, even though, by professing Christianity he is an apostate.
Influenced by the doctrine of progress or of historical evolution, Obama represents the antithesis of the American Declaration of Independence, which postulates immutable principles rooted in the ethical monotheism of the Bible and the natural rights doctrine of Greek political philosophy.
That tradition was undermined when Woodrow Wilson, influenced by Darwinism, substituted historical evolution for the immutable truths of the Declaration. Thereafter the Constitution became a “living (or evolving) constitution,” which subordinates the intentions of the Framers to the egalitarian or populist predilections of the Supreme Court. The will of men, of judicial activists, replaced the rule of law.
Enter Barack Obama and the slogan of CHANGE and “YES WE CAN.” “Change”? Yes, from a nation based in individual entrepreneurship to one based on government “entitlements,” a government that empowers the “WE,” not the “I.”
Descending from these abstract ideas to earthly facts: according to some estimates, about 20% of the world’s Muslim population supports jihad—a number equal to the population of the United States. Bernard Lewis, the doyen of Islamic scholars, states: “The overwhelming majority of classical theologians, jurists, and traditionalists … understood the obligation of jihad in a military sense, and have examined and expounded it accordingly.” A word about Islam’s sacred book.
The Quran represents, for Muslims, the “final revelation” of God, conveyed to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel. Every word of the Quran, every syllable, every letter manifests absolute truth. Those who reject Islam reject the truth. Hence there is no reason for Muslims, who possess the truth, to tolerate error or to respect its purveyors—the kafirs, the community of “non-believers.” This is why Islam, from its inception in the seventh century to the present day, has pillaged and destroyed countless Jewish, Christian, and Hindu communities.
The myth of a “Golden Age,” when Muslims, Jews, and Christians lived in harmony, has been refuted by Bat Ye’or’s Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide. Elsewhere, she refers to Islam as “The Culture of Hate.” Islam “has multiple heads from Algeria to Afghanistan, to Indonesia, via Gaza and the West Bank, Damascus, Cairo, Khartoum, Teheran, and Karachi. It scatters the seeds of terrorism from one end of the earth to the other.”
The principle of human equality, which Obama emphasized in his Inaugural Address, is foreign to Islam. So too are the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The Quran therefore rejects the “self-evident” truths of the American Declaration of Independence. Properly understood, Islam rejects the Biblical conception of man’s creation in the image of God.
Conversely, the Declaration rejects the Islamic belief that the Quran is the repository of truth. Hardly any democratic intellectual dares question the basic beliefs, including the monotheism, of 1.5 billion people. To question the truth of Islam smacks of racism or “Islamophobia,” something abhorrent to democrats. Dominated by moral relativism, the West is in no position to refute Islam. One does not refute Islam by saying Muslims have slaughtered 270 million people since the time of Muhammad.
Nor does one refute Islam by recalling how the horrible death of 3,000 human beings on 9/11 was gleefully celebrated throughout the Islamic world. But what about “Muslim moderates”? The issue of Muslim moderates is strategically irrelevant, since they do not control any Islamic state. More significant, as Geert Wilders, a member of the Dutch parliament, has pointed out, “There is no moderate Islam, there will never be a moderate Islam.” This is the only honest conclusion one can draw from the Quran, which Churchill called the Mein Kampf of war.
So what is to be done vis-à-vis a creed whose adherents slaughter men, women, and children in the name of Allah and his prophet, and are applauded by countless believers? Dr. Wafa Sultan, a Syrian-born psychiatrist, said Islam cannot be reformed; it must be transformed. Long before that happens, Muslim despots will possess weapons of mass destruction; and since they do not regard human life as sacred, they will not hesitate to use those weapons.
President Obama, however, is so intoxicated with his oratorical skill that he thinks he can pacify the murderous hatred that animates Muslims like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who calls for a world without America.
A world without America means a world devoid of what made America the greatest nation on earth: the immutable truths of the Declaration of Independence. But what can be immutable when a desire for CHANGE, disconnected from PERMANENCE, made a person of Obama’s radically socialist and chameleon character President of the United States? Can one inspire reverence, can one inspire national solidarity, without emphasizing what is permanent and therefore transcends what is here today and gone tomorrow?

A Blunder of Colossal Proportions in Afghanistan!
BY Herschel Smith
The Captain's Journal
One error made in the phase of Operation Iraqi Freedom following the invasion was the foisting of a democratic form of government on the country, and even more specifically, a parliamentary form of government. It led to the ineptitude and intransigence of the government for a protracted period of time. The position of Prime Minister, held now by Maliki, was used as much to prevent U.S. operations against rogue Shi’a elements as it was to serve the country. Indeed, while performing a defensive political operation for Moqtada al Sadr, Abdul Aziz al-Hakim and the SIIC and others, he had no problem allowing the U.S. to go after Sunni insurgents in Anbar and in and around Baghdad. Even recently Marine Maj. Gen John Kelly has complained about the lack of funding flowing from Baghdad to Anbar. Having a political authority and structure to which the U.S. was reportable hindered the progress of counterinsurgency, even if in the end a political authority was necessary for turnover of control.
Hamid Karzai wants the U.S. to make the same mistake in Afghanistan. Even worse, he wants operational and strategic control over U.S. forces."

I'm still trying to formulate a response to it that looks like something other than treason.
If I had the ability to put my current disgust into words, not only would I have to ban myself, but I'd have the secret service busting through my front door.
My problems not so much with Obama himself, as it is the regions of the nation that put him into office. I no longer feel I share enough common interests with them to justify sharing a government with them. I feel like this election was an attack, by them, on my way of life.
I cant imagine the regional / ideological rift being any deeper after the election of 1860 than it is today.... but only the lack of regional / ideological passion that keeps us from doing anything about living under a government we despise..... and there's really nothing I can do about it but watch the decline of our greatness from the comfort of my recliner...... its either there or prison.
Gabe's basically saying that just because the left engaged in rabid obstructionist opposition, and despite the fact that it worked, we should not sink to their level..... but he doesn't really say how long we should submit to the will of the ignorant majority.
How many more election cycles should we hold our fire?
What if at some point, even after the left's policies have left our great nation in shambles, the ignorant majority still blindly support the Utopian leftist vision..... and their numbers continue to multiply..... do we just all keep standing aside and let them reduce our nation to a 3rd world basket case? ........... probably.
You know the founders, in their remarkable foresight, never really intended for the ignorant people to even vote for the executive. They left it to the states to decide how to use their electoral college allotment. Most states didn't even allow a popular vote in our early contests. In fact they didn't even intend for every ignorant person to be allowed to vote for their Congressmen. The brilliant racist bastards were trying to keep power in the hands of White Men.
Whats odd is, over the course of time, no one took power away from the racist white men...... we gave it away. A fact that I dont think is fully appreciated by all those now accustomed to wielding the power we gave them.
I dont think there's ever been a Revolution or Civil War where the majority of the citizens actually engaged in the day to day trigger work.... so I dont guess a population majority is a necessity to win one. I think it usually boils down to who wants to win the most. And they usually start as a single small skirmish and spread from there....... and I dont really see a catalyst for that happening here, yet.
...... of course that could change the first time Obama visits Dallas.

In addition to the lack of proper vetting for the election process, namely his refusal to produce a valid Birth certificate, I feel that President-elect Barack Hussein Obama's political platform, his long standing associations with national enemies and our next first lady who openly expresses her hatred for the USA will work together to place our country in serious distress.
Therefore, as my statement against Obama and what he will bring to the presidency, the American flag graphic above will remain in the distress position (upside-down) until he leaves office.

. . . an Inauguration of Ignorance, a Festival of Fraud and a Reception of Racism. The only history being made here is the Fall of a Republic, into a phony populist monarchy. When the 21st Hijacker in Chief takes his oath of office, America will be facing the greatest challenge to its own survival since the Civil War, a ruthlessly corrupt Bread and Circuses Presidency.

Obama will seek to reassure Muslims alienated by Bush
But who will seek to reassure non-Muslims alienated by jihad aggression and Islamic supremacism? Why, no one, of course. That would be "Islamophobic."
"Obama reaches out to Muslims," by Sarah Baxter for the Sunday Times, check JW for more…
Obama's lavish display of wealth is all the more obscene, coming at a time when hundreds of thousands of workers are losing their jobs and many families, including those who were foolish enough to vote for him, are struggling to make ends meet.
It is particularly obscene at a time when Obama himself is talking about everyone having to make sacrifices. Clearly that doesn't extend to him. Neither does paying taxes, as his choice of treasury secretary, a man who committed tax fraud, demonstrates.
The same lapdog media which frenziedly jumped on even the faintest hint of scandal surrounding Palin, can barely be bothered to report that the man whose responsibilities will include the IRS committed tax fraud.
Of course this is the same media that thinks the big story on Eric Holder is that he opposes waterboarding, not that he worked to help terrorists.

We know who the enemies are
[The] virulent socialists have reemerged from the collapse of the old left and old communism to form what Mr. [David] Horowitz properly calls the “neocommunists,” or “neocomms.” The neocomms, however, have devolved from their pining for the new world order of old communism to raw nihilism—destruction of everything. Their goal is to destroy America and everything it stands for, and now they have new partners.
The new partners are the Islamic jihadists, who want exactly the same thing: The destruction of America and all it stands for. This is the hardcore FIFTH COLUMN, with many strap-hangers along for the ride. This is the UNHOLY ALLIANCE David Horowitz presents. And, hold your hats, the Unholy Alliance is WINNING. If we don’t get off our derrieres, we are going to be herded into a totalitarian state worse than any of those in the 20th century, and we will be bowing to Mecca five times a day.
The Unholy Alliance members are organized, and they are speaking with one voice, from one sheet of paper, as the expression goes. We Americans are not organized, nor are we speaking from the same sheet of paper. We are divided, in part by the effect of our own ignorance, direct effects philosopher John Dewey unleashed on American education (from K-12 and through all of the teachers colleges, and into the university system), and the total takeover of academia and all media by neocomms. In short, we are facing a principled and consistent leftist alliance combating US, an under-principled and very inconsistent America and West. If we do not become fully principled, and very consistent in their application, we will lose to this new Fifth Column.
Since 11 September 2001, the neocomms and the jihadists in America fused to achieve the same symbiotic end. The two are almost indistinguishable in content, rhetoric, and behavior. As a result, we have a ferociously dangerous FIFTH COLUMN in America and throughout the West. We have organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union, National Lawyers Guild, and Center for Constitutional Rights, ANSWER, Not In My Name, Code Pink, AFCSME and other unions, and many others, linking with the United Nations, Council for American-Islamic Relations, Muslim Brotherhood, Muslim Students Association, Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and many others. Some of these names are from the book, and others I have added because of their obvious neocomm-jihadist orientation. Joining them are strap-hanger Fifth Columnist comsymps in the Democrat Party such as Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and the Democrat Party dumpling, Michael Moore, as well as almost half the U. S. Senate. The bulk of American journalism—print and broadcast--vibrates in sympathy and support, and almost all of American education at all levels dances to the neocomms-jihadist tunes. This is not “conspiracy theorizing.” It is fact, and Horowitz proves the case.
Their plan is first to paralyze America with legal and moral-appearing means. Then they will move in to kill the paralyzed beast of America.
Mr. Horowitz makes the case and names the names. He threatens this fifth column so much that they have launched a campaign to discredit him and this book. Just that behavior alone should make you run out and buy the book.
The final chapter concerns secessionism. To the neocomms-jihadists, the goal is to destroy patriotism so that the citizens can secede from the ideas of and the physical existence of America. Read it for yourself. Mr. Horowitz quotes these people liberally here, and throughout the book, because they mince no words about their ideas and intents.
We who love individual freedom, capitalism, and the Constitution of the United States have a clear obligation to defend our values. We start by erasing ignorance and sharpening our awareness. While doing this, we become activists. We start pushing back--in the press, on the air, and in every way we can.
We fight back with the correct intellectual ammunition. Our ideas are better, and we must make them highly visible and dominant. This book is a valuable piece of that intellectual ammunition. Never forget that they are winning, NOT BECAUSE THEIR IDEAS ARE BETTER, but because they are being consistent. Our ideas are better, and with consistent application of reason, we will win.
David Horowitz is the President of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture and editor of Frontpagemag.com, an on-line magazine, which receives over 4.5 million page views a month. He has spoken at more than 200 colleges and universities, and has appeared on Nightline, Crossfire, Today, Good Morning America, C-SPAN, CNBC, Fox News Channel and CBS’s This Morning, and gives hundreds of interviews yearly on radio and television. He has authored numerous books and has started organizations to restore free speech to academia and to correct the drift of the Democrat Party to the aggressive socialist left.
and now . . .
WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT?
If--or when--a civil uprising will . . . come to these United States again, from whence will it originate? Civil unrest--revolution--usually originates in the minds of intellectuals. Civil unrest must have an ideology behind it--ideas--and these spawn in the fertile minds of the intellectuals.
People who are --who must be--concerned with staying alive, concentrate on their work, leaving little space for idle cogitating. The mind of the intellectual, is constantly beset by feverish activity to solve the problems of existence he/she sees around him/herself.
Intellectuals are commonly thought to belong to the progressive part of the public--the Left. But would it be Leftist intellectuals that strike the spark that lights the flame of liberty?
REVOLUTION FROM THE LEFT
Sara Robinson in her article When Change Is Not Enough: Seven Steps to Revolution appears to believe so. Revolution, if it were to come, would come from the Liberals--led by such as Obama. Obama? Liberals? But aren't they for gun control? For "multiculturalism," the opening that our enemies, determined on taking over the United States for Islam, are using to subvert our laws and establish Islamic law--sharia--to replace the Constitution and make it irrelevant?
Any Revolution emanating from the Left--with a leadership such as Obama--Afrocentrically oriented, would be determined to turn the the society upside down--that is to let the bottom classes rise to the top and make what are now the upper classes subservient to them.
Yes, we have these types of Revolutions today, Hugo Chavez's in Venezuela was such a one. Not entirely bloodless, but nothing like a civil war and he has the country in the grip of a Socialist regime--just as Castro has done with Cuba.
The "disposessed" rise to the top--are in control--via a benevolent (to them) dictator.
A Revolution that emanates from the Left, would most likely end in a Socialist dictatorship that could easily slip into the grasp of the Islamics and end with these latter triumphant.
REVOLUTION FROM THE RIGHT
We have an ever-increasing polarization in the United States. There are those that are open to the Islamics taking over (the Left) and those who are determined that they will not (the Right). Who will win?
To whom is it left up to to make that decision?
Make it--fast--and act upon it NOW.
Stay in touch with each other.
It is not numbers but the quality of those determined to save the country.
Never give in.
Draw one of you will

Any mention of Eugene O'Neill's The Emperor Jones from the past 50 years will start off with the squeamish factor, the discomfort of a modern audience watching a black man . . . exhibiting a host of sins. We're not supposed to objectify black men in this way anymore.
his regal swagger [gradually falls to pieces]
"Jones may be an archetype, but he's not a stereotype,"
--Paterson Joseph, black English actor
O'Neill's daring. Not only did he put an African-American centre stage, but he made that character an Everyman
--[Thea] Sharrock and [Paterson] Joseph
COMMENT by Leslie White:
Another play by Eugene O'Neill--that touches Americans:
Long Days Journey into Night
Talk polite, white man, talk polite. I'm boss here. — Jones
He is laughing at, and exploiting the islanders by levying huge taxes so that he can live in luxury. "From stowaway to emperor in two years -- that's going some!" he brags. His behaviour emulates white rulers. When he rings the bell to summon servants all that can be heard is the buzz of a fly.
. . . somewhere, in the background, an African witch doctor dances-- frenetically.
Then Jones enters the throne room. He is a powerfully built black man dressed in a uniform of blue jacket and gold chevrons and braids. His pants are red with light blue stripes down the sides. Around his waist is a belt with a long-barreled, pearl-handled revolver in a holster.
Apparently, Jones has established himself as Emperor on the island and he knows secrets about Smithers [a white British colonial] that keep them both in their respective roles.
Emperor reminds Smithers how he has looked the other way on some of his deals while he was trying to pass laws against his very offenses.
The Emperor knows the ways of the white world from the time that he spent working on a Pullman car. He knows how to talk quality and he has positioned himself as someone of authority over the blacks here.
Smithers reminds him that it was a silver bullet, not his skills, that got him his position. Lem, a native chief, had tried to kill him from 10 feet away and his gun misfired; Emperor killed him instead. He told the natives that only a silver bullet could kill him and that is how he arose to power, knowing that none of them would ever have one. He has bamboozled them into thinking he has mysterious powers.
[The] Emperor has had a silver bullet made just for the drama of it and tells people that he is the only one who can kill himself.
Jones boasts: "Dawn tomorrow I be on de coast. Dat French gunboat takes me to Martinique, and dere I is safe wid a mighty big bank roll in my jeans."

Blackface and a revelatory 'Emperor Jones'

It’s not just the "black" dialect of the text or the shiftiness of the central character. It’s the implicit assumption that African-Americans are somehow more in danger of shifting back to some sort of primitivist root than the rest of us. O’Neill, clearly, didn’t spend much time around Illinois politicians. Otherwise he’d have seen that such recidivism has nothing whatsoever to do with race. It’s merely human behavior that those in power have always displayed, while preferring to assign to others.

17,500 armed soldiers in addition to Secret Service and other Federal personnel will provide security for the inauguration.
Would I attend the inauguration? I would not walk across the street to see the inauguration. Why? Because I honor not celebrity nor pomposity*--only aptitude and merit. Neither will be present at this year's inaugeration nor have they been at the past couple of these quadri-annual events.

On Obama’s inauguration, Muslims say, ‘It’s our time’
by Bob Unruh, WorldNet Daily, Jan. 9, 2009
A magazine that proudly promotes itself as Muslim has announced a special edition for Barack Obama’s inauguration as president, with Editor Nida Kahn claiming, “It’s our time.”
The publication, Elan magazine, also includes endorsements of Obama’s familiarity with Islam from the daughter of Malcolm X and Benjamin F. Chavis Muhammad, the chief of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network, as well as others.
The magazine, which calls itself the “guide to global Muslim culture,” is distributed in the U.S., Pakistan, Indonesia, Canada, Qatar, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates, as well as online.
‘I believe he will help bring about a better understanding Islam is religion of peace’
Its cover story for the edition, “Muslim World Embraces Obama,” “explores the hopes and aspirations of Muslims regarding America’s new president.” (Continue Reading this Article)
OBAMA INAUGURATION PRAYER WILL BE GIVEN BY TERROR LINKED GROUP PRES
Of all the clergy in America ..... why her?Obama invites Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood linked ISNA to offer prayer at inauguration ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in the same Hamas funding case that named CAIR as a Muslim Brotherhood group in the same Brotherhood document that speaks of its goal of destroying Western civilization from within.(more)Creeping Sharia has more:
A prayer will be offered at the National Cathedral by Ingrid Mattson, the first woman president of the Islamic Society of North America, according to an official who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information. The Islamic Society, based in Indiana, is the nation’s largest Muslim group. Source: AP
In ISNA Admits Hamas Ties, previously classified details on ISNA’s Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood connections are revealed:
In its latest filing before the federal district court in Dallas on behalf of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and its affiliate organization, the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) in the Hamas-terrorism financing case, the ACLU has made a noteworthy admission.
Rather than deny that there is copious evidence tying ISNA and NAIT to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the brief argues that such evidence is merely dated. In a curious footnote on page 7, the reply states:
Assuming the authenticity of documents’ dates, the most recent documents to mention either ISNA or NAIT are dated 1991, Gov. Exhs. 3-3 and 3-85, but the majority of the documents are older. Almost all of the numerous exhibits that purport to show financial transactions and that contain any mention of ISNA or NAIT are dated 1988 and 1989 (there are two dated 1990), almost a decade before the majority of the overt acts the government alleges in support of its conspiracy charges against the HLF defendants.
So ISNA and NAIT are not saying that the documents tying their organizations to Hamas are “inauthentic,” but that the problem with the evidence is just that it is old.
Obama is quite fond of ISNA, an unindicted co-conspirator to a convicted terrorist funding organization, HLF, and previously invited Mattson to preside over an interfaith event at the Democratic National Convention. More on Ingrid Mattson in Her Own Words.

Watch Out for the Model Islamic "Immigrant" entrant or descendant - He or She May be Caught UP in "Instant Jihad!"
Moral: Beware of Moslems ingratiating themselves into your country. They might be in the guise of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) or the "student" at your local college or university. INSTANT JIHAD is a deadly disease!
Read about the Danish case at:
Gates of Vienna: The Odense Shooter: A Model Citizen
Even the formerly anti-Jewish BNP (British National Party) is thawing in its antisemitism here and there as they see that the real danger to turning the UK into part of the ummah (Islamic world community) is more of a threat than the native Jews.
When U.S. Jew haters back Hamas and the other Islamic terror factions (Abbas' Fatah) in Israel's territories because they hate Jews, they are backing the same people that want to overthrow the government of the United States and turn it into an Islamic country.
Were this to happen, our home-grown Nazis and Jew haters would find themselves as second-class humans, dhimmis--that is, despised unbelievers that must suck up to Moslems to be allowed to exist.
Although the Nazis and other Jew-haters could be happy in the knowledge that Jews would be cleansed from the population mix that once made up the United States.
*[excerpt] Hamas is simply acting on the direct instructions of the Iranian Mullahcracy that reigns supreme. Iran is the biggest threat to our way of life, the democracy that we hold dear, the freedom that we cherish and take for granted. In Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatens that the battle over Palestine is "the prelude of the battle of Islam with the world of arrogance", the world of the West.
The Jews are Fighting Our War

Thursday, January 1, 2009
Brave young men, the best of their generation, die or are maimed for life because our politicians do not even have the small courage to admit that they were wrong.
The Government never knew why it was sending them there in the first place. Opium poppies? We grow them legally in Oxfordshire. Freeing women from the burka? It’s still worn. Fighting the Taliban? We could do that for 50 years and still lose, as anyone who knows anything about Afghanistan could have warned from the start.
It’s weeks since Brigadier Mark Carleton-Smith said that the idea of defeating the Taliban was ‘neither feasible nor supportable’, America’s spooks recently conceded that our operations there were in a downward spiral, and our Ambassador to Kabul, Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, has been revealed in a leaked document to believe that our mission is doomed.
Yet we just carry on, like Earl Haig on the Somme, spending other people’s lives like so much paper.
Afghanistan’s government is a corrupt, powerless joke, not least because it is founded on the barrels of foreign guns.
It does not even control its own capital. The Taliban are quietly re-establishing themselves in a cleverly modified form, avoiding some of their old unpopular policies.
There is no point in waiting for a new American President to save us from our own folly.
Barack Obama – like all Left-wing US Presidents – will need to prove how ‘tough’ he is quite early on, and also hopes to win over many of the neo-Cons who backed the ‘war on terror’.
And Mr Obama’s most likely way of showing off will be to step up the futile Afghan conflict, since it is still – absurdly – popular and widely believed to have a defined purpose. Probably he will make more and more raids into Pakistan, a country already stumbling around in wounded circles.
