The communist Left’s campaign to drive every hint of God from our nation’s classrooms continues.  In case you missed the story from a couple of weeks ago, the latest twist in the case of the assault on one teacher’s freedom of speech has been a blow dealt by the notoriously leftist 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled that school district authorities did not violate the teacher’s right to freedom of speech when they ordered him to remove patriotic banners from his classroom that included the name of God. 

This ordeal began back in 2007 when Brad Johnson, a math teacher in San Diego’s Westview High School of the Poway Unified School District, was ordered by the schools principal to remove the banners.

 WorldNetDaily reported that Johnson did not take the attack lying down and filed suit against the school district.

 “A math teacher sued his school district after the principal told him the words ‘In God We Trust’ and ‘All Men Are Created Equal, They Are Endowed By Their Creator’ must be removed from his homeroom wall because they convey a Judeo-Christian viewpoint.

 In January, Principal Dawn Kastner told Westview High School math teacher Bradley Johnson that a banner he had posted in his classroom for 25 years, and another that was posted for 17 years, needed to come down.

 The older banner, measuring 7 feet by 2 feet, contained the words ‘In God We Trust,’ ‘One Nation Under God,’ ‘God Bless America’ and ‘God Shed His Grace On Thee.’ The second banner quoted the Declaration of Independence by including the phrase, ‘All Men Are Created Equal, They Are Endowed By Their Creator.’

 Even though 4,000 students have passed through Johnson’s classroom without a single complaint in 25 years, the principal told Johnson the banners were now impermissible because of their religious content.”

 From the beginning of this case, Brad Johnson has had the representation of the Thomas More Law Center whose members are champions for the rights of people of faith.  They achieved an initial victory last year when a clear-minded federal judge in California ruled against the school district.

 As WorldNetDaily reported,

 “A federal judge in California has handed down a scathing ruling against a school that required one of its teachers to remove signs celebrating the role of God in American history from his classroom walls.

 … ‘May a school district censor a high school teacher’s expression because it refers to Judeo-Christian views, while allowing other teachers to express views on a number of controversial subjects, including religion and anti-religion?’ posited U.S. District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez in his judgment. ‘On undisputed evidence, this court holds that it may not.’

 He continued, ‘That God places prominently in our nation’s history does not create an Establishment Clause violation requiring curettage and disinfectant for Johnson’s public high school classroom walls. It is a matter of historical fact that our institutions and government actors have in past and present times given place to a supreme God.’

 The judge further reprimanded the school, stating that while teachers at the district ‘encourage students to celebrate diversity and value thinking for one’s self, [they] apparently fear their students are incapable of dealing with diverse viewpoints that include God’s place in American history and culture.’”

 What made this case even worse was the fact that the oh-so-tolerant diversity pushers of the school district allowed just about every other religious and leftwing persuasion to be displayed in classrooms but not messages containing any mention of the God of creation.

 Last year’s ruling was certainly a great moment for freedom in America, but the anti-Christian members of the school board were outraged and voted to appeal it, and on September 13th, a 3-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned Judge Benitez’s ruling.  Who could have seen that coming from that hard-left leaning court?

 The first line of the decision drips with hypocrisy, as I will explain,

 “We consider whether a public school district infringes the First Amendment liberties of one of its teachers when it orders him not to use his public position as a pulpit from which to preach his own views on the role of God in our Nation’s history to the captive students in his mathematics classroom. The answer is clear: it does not.”

 These godless justices apparently do not see the double standard they display in this ruling.  This ruling leaves teachers in the district free to “preach their own views” about every other anti-Christian philosophy in the world.  These justices certainly do not mind that the radical homosexual agenda is being forced on captive students by legislative mandate in California.  Oh, certainly not!  It is only the one, true God that so deeply offends them.

 In an announcement after the ruling, Richard Thompson of the Thomas More Law Center wrote,

 “Last week a 3-judge panel of the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals held it was okay for teachers to acclaim Buda and pro-gay rights, but not God.

 The Court’s decision ridiculed the historical fact of ‘the role of God in our Nation’s history.’

 … Get this. The School District admitted that Brad never attempted to proselytize his students; that he was one of the best math teachers in the District.”

 This hypocritical court’s ruling left in place the school district’s permitting of every other classroom display besides Johnson’s, including, as stated in the latest WorldNetDaily report,

 “… a 35-to-40 foot string of Tibetan prayer flags with images of Buddha, a poster with the lyrics from John Lennon’s anti-religion song ‘Imagine’ (which begins, ‘Imagine there’s no Heaven’), a poster with Hindu leader Mahatma Gandhi’s ‘7 Social Sins,’ a poster of Muslim leader Malcolm X and another of Buddhist leader Dalai Lama..”

 This world is currently ruled by the forces of Satan.  Satan and his minions despise the one, true God, and they work ceaselessly to destroy and suppress His Word, but God’s Word will not be bound by the pathetic forces of darkness.  It should be no surprise that we see ever-increasing court rulings such as this, because the people who align themselves against God are necessarily on the side of Satan, and they have in them a satanically inspired hatred for even the name of the Lord.

 The vigilant members of the Thomas More Law Center are going to appeal this faulty ruling to the entire 9th Circuit Court for a rehearing, and if that is unsuccessful they are prepared to appeal to the United States Supreme Court to hear the case.

 This is an extremely expensive legal battle, and they are representing Brad Johnson without charge.  The Law Center is appealing for financial support to continue the invaluable work they do on behalf of Brad Johnson and many other people who are fighting for their constitutionally guaranteed right to live their Christian faith.

 Most of us, as individuals, do not have the financial means to undertake such legal battles in the federal courts, and without the help of selfless groups like the Thomas More Law Center, we would be without recourse.  Please consider becoming a contributor to the Thomas More Law Center.

 As valuable as money contributions are, prayers are also priceless and powerful.  Please pray for the Law Center warriors and for Brad Johnson who is standing in for so many of us.

The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they’re here, they probably do.

A couple of stories from last week serve to further illustrate who some of the real bullies in America are.  The first incident was the outrageous behavior of a German class teacher in Fort Worth, Texas, who lost his mind when a student dared to tell his buddy that homosexuality is wrong, and the second case was of the lunatic homosexual who launched a vicious verbal attack against Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, in a West Hollywood nightclub. 

You have likely already heard or read of these two stories, but just in case you missed them, I will recap them today. 

As reported by the Fort Worth Star Telegram,

 “Freshman Dakota Ary was in German class on Tuesday when the discussion turned to religion and a student in the back of the class asked what that country’s views of homosexuality are, the teen said.  

‘I told my friend that I’m a Christian and I believe being gay is wrong,’ Ary said. ‘But the teacher told me I shouldn’t say things like that, and he wrote me an infraction. I was surprised. I wasn’t discriminating or being a bully. I was just expressing my beliefs.’  

Ary had a First Amendment right to express those views, his attorney Matt Krause said. But after talking with an assistant principal, he was initially placed on a three-day, in-school suspension.  

‘He was just expressing his viewpoint and he did it in a very non-hostile, benign way to a friend,’ Krause said. 

Holly Pope, the boy’s mother, said she was shocked that he was suspended. 

‘He is not a troublemaker or a bully of any kind,’ she said. ‘This was not out of context. This was in a discussion about religion. … I knew this subject had come up in class before because he told me last week that the teacher had a picture of two men kissing on a wall that had pictures from across the world.’  

Pope said she met with Principal James Wellman on Wednesday morning and he reversed the suspension. She said the suspension will not be on Ary’s record and he will be allowed to make up the classwork he missed.” 

At least the boy’s undue punishment was reversed, but that teacher needs to go, as does the principal if he allows the teacher to get away with that awful behavior.  How dare he put an obscene photograph of two men kissing on the wall of his classroom?!  How dare he try to muzzle the free expression of deeply held beliefs of his student?  Besides being yet another of the myriad examples of glaring reasons to get your kids out of the government-run public schools, this demonstrates the heavy-handed influence of the radical homosexual movement in our kids’ education system.  

This powerful bully lobby has made deep inroads in our children’s school life.  This is one result of the ruse of “anti-bullying” campaigns that have been ramped up since Barack Obama ordained the radical homosexual activist, Kevin Jennings, to the horribly-named position of Safe Schools Czar in Obama’s administration. 

The irony of having had the perverse Kevin Jennings in a position overseeing school policy and curriculum is really over the top.  Kevin Jennings is a far-Left homosexual activist radical who has spent much of his adult life pursuing the infiltration of the militant homosexual agenda in our nation’s public schools.  Under Kevin Jennings’ watch, we have seen big advances in the homosexualization of the schools, including an unprecedented law in California that mandates homosexuals be portrayed in a positive light in history and social studies classes. 

Discover the Networks has a cringe-inducing run-down on this diabolical fellow, part of which reports on his having counseled an underage boy who confided in Jennings that he was having a sexual relationship with an adult man.  Instead of reporting the statutory rape to authorities, Jennings encouraged the boy to be sure to wear a condom.

Jennings is the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), the acronym of which is euphemistically pronounced “glisten.”  This organization, whose purpose is to promote homosexuality to school children from kindergarten on up, has grown like an aggressive cancer to more than 3000 chapters as of 2009. 

Jennings wrote the forward for a book whose title says it all:  Queering Elementary Education: Advancing the Dialogue about Sexualities and Schooling. 

In 2000, his GLSEN organization co-hosted a “Teach Out” at, 

“…Tufts University, where organizers instructed public-school teachers on how to incorporate positive messages about homosexuality into their curricula. At the same conference, GLSEN organizers led a youth workshop (for students aged 14 to 21) titled ‘What They Didn’t Tell You about Queer Sex & Sexuality in Health Class.’ One of the topics discussed was ‘fisting’…” 

I will stop short of the description of that abominable homosexual act. 

Kevin Jennings stepped down from his position in the Obama administration back in June, which is good, but that does not mean he will not continue to be influential in the public school arena. 

The good news is that there are some strong Christian warriors here in American who are not afraid to stand up to these deviants.  Mass Resistance reports that they have teamed up with the Family Research Council to confront the detestable GLSEN and their targeting of school kids.  They have produced a short, eye-opening video which is linked on the Mass Resistance website, among other places. 

In another story last week, a poster child for bully homosexuals simply could not contain his hellish hatred for Sarah Palin, so he let loose with a nasty verbal assault against Mrs. Palin’s daughter, Bristol. 

Reportedly for an upcoming reality show, Bristol Palin was being filmed riding a mechanical bull in a nightclub in West Hollywood.  When she fell off the bull, the 47-year-old man yelled across the bar to her, “Did you ride Levi like that?  Your mother’s a whore!” 

Bristol got up off the padded bull pen floor and made a beeline to the man as cameras rolled and caught the whole incident on tape.  She confronted him and asked what he had against her mom.  All he could do was throw senseless, profanity-laced venom in Bristol’s face.  Bristol handled the situation remarkably well, even calling this degenerate vegetable “sir” when addressing him. 

The man was an obvious homosexual, and Bristol pointed that fact out when she asked if his hatred for her mother was because he’s a homosexual.  He said it probably is the reason, and then he asked her why she thought he was a homosexual, and she said she could tell.  Bristol and the film crew finally walked away from him as he shouted his final profanities at her, the only part I which I can report here is his calling her “white trash from Wasilla.”  For the full, disgusting exchange, see the video embedded in a column at the New York Daily News. 

Here is what we are dealing with in our nation today.  People like this homosexual are the real bullies, not the Christians who speak out against the push to homosexualize our nation.  There is a common, evil spirit that infects the members of the militant homosexual community.  It is a spirit of profound darkness and hatred for the light of God’s Word.  Their hatred for those of us who stand up for Christian values is the very same hatred that Satan himself has for us.  It is a satanically inspired hate. 

The radical homosexual agenda is on the march in our nation like never before.  Everywhere we turn, we see the effects and influence of this fetid campaign.  The aggressive push by homosexuals has cowed professional sports teams and corporate America.  We have seen countless companies capitulate to the demands of radical homosexual groups and even sign on to sponsor those groups!  A corporate sponsor list on GLSEN’s website shows companies who have donated anywhere from $1,000 to more than a million dollars to it, and includes entities such as American Express, Visa, Wells Fargo, Showtime, Turner Broadcasting System, the National Education Association, PepsiCo, Inc., IBM Corporation, AT&T, Eastman Kodak Company, Fox Broadcasting Company and the California Teachers Association—just to name a few! 

Barack Obama has furthered the power of the radical homosexuals by appointing them to his administration and to courts all across our country. 

This battle we are in for the soul of our nation is not going to go away.  It is only going to intensify.  The freedom of speech and religion of conservatives and Christians in America is in the crosshairs of these militant homosexuals.  The deconstruction of the family and the redefinition of marriage are on their agenda.  Your kids are in their sights—don’t doubt it for a minute. 

It is imperative that we Christians stand firmly against the evil campaign to homosexualize our nation and our nation’s children.  Regardless of how much power they gain, we must resist them all we can.  In the Bible, Daniel was given the future vision that in the last days (which we are either in or rapidly approaching) the forces of Satan will temporarily prevail over God’s people.  We are moving toward Satan’s global, unified regime which will see a time of horror on Earth unseen from the dawn of time and never to be seen again.  I do not say this to discourage you from the fight, but it is important to understand that these evil days must come, and we must not lose heart or lose sight of the eternal goal set before us. 

The members of the radical homosexual movement are simply more of the foot soldiers who will help speed those diabolical days toward us.  They are fighting to rob us of our freedoms we have long enjoyed, our freedom to speak out against what we know to be wrong and our freedom of religion.  We have not yet fully lost those freedoms, and we still have resources to help us remain effective soldiers in the culture war that rages.  Mass Resistance is one source.  

There are also still valuable resources for homosexuals who want to escape that dead-end lifestyle.  Many homosexuals have been freed and continue to be freed from the chains of homosexuality.  Groups like Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays and Exodus International are two organizations that help many homosexuals every year. 

As we continue to fight the forces of darkness that never rest, let us continue to pray for our nation and never give up our efforts to be salt and light in this lost and dying world.

The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they’re here, they probably do.

It was an almost five-month wait after I gladly pre-ordered Dr. Michael Savage’s latest book, a novel, Abuse of Power.  I was among the early fans who pre-ordered it when he first mentioned it on his nationally syndicated radio show, The Savage Nation.  It finally arrived a couple of days after its release last week.  I was excited to get a suspense thriller written by my favorite talk radio host. 

Having read all of Dr. Savage’s political books and written a thorough review of his last one, Trickle Up Poverty, I already know that he is an excellent writer.  His books are well-researched and quite informative, but they are all non-fiction.  Abuse of Power is his first fiction book.  It is a fast-paced, international thriller whose story spans the globe. 

If you are a regular listener to his show, then you have likely heard Dr. Savage reading selected passages from the book.  I tried to not listen too carefully when he did that, because I really did not want to know any of the story before I read it.  It turned out fine, although as I was still reading the book, Dr. Savage did tell a small part of the story about the Brothers Islands in the San Francisco Bay—a part that I was just about to get to—that tipped me off to the fact that one of the “good guys” in the story is not a good guy. 

Nevertheless, I can say that I was nicely impressed with Dr. Savage’s first novel.  Writing fiction is a difficult art that not many people can do well.  Dr. Savage not only does it well, but his book reads as if it were written by someone who has done fiction for years. 

I like to read novels on a fairly regular basis when I can squeeze them in, and since I do not choose to own a television, and I rarely go to the movie theater or watch a movie on the computer, novels are usually where I get my fiction entertainment.  Abuse of Power succeeds as a top-rate story that creates a moving picture in your mind—a quickly moving picture!  It starts out with a bang and does not let up until the end. 

Dr. Savage has laced some real-life fact in with his fiction.  He worked into the story a fictional version of the shameful ban that Britain has placed on his travel there, an outrageous banning of the innocent Dr. Savage that I have previously covered on this broadcast and one time before we started my commentary here on News Radio. 

In the story, the protagonist, Jack Hatfield, is a former war correspondent and television talk show host who has been falsely smeared, his words purposefully taken out of context and made to sound as if he wants Muslims to be killed.  It is a successful slander campaign that gets him thrown off the air.  He is subsequently banned from entry into Britain by the Home Secretary.  His inclusion on the British banned list is to add “balance” to the Islamic terrorists who are also on it.  The British ban story parallels Dr. Savage’s own. 

A faithful listener to Dr. Savage’s radio show will recognize bits and pieces of his life throughout the pages, not that it is autobiographical, but there are details, things you have heard him mention on the radio throughout the years, which are woven into the fabric and characters of the story.  Jack Hatfield is not Dr. Savage, but he is born of Dr. Savage’s richly creative mind and abundant life experiences, and he shares Dr. Savage’s love of our country. 

We also see a furry little character that is quite a bit like Dr. Savage’s own toy poodle, Teddy.  The dog in the story is Eddie, and Eddie plays his parts well.  Another real-life parallel character is not-so-loosely based on the diabolical billionaire, George Soros.  The character, Lawrence Soren, makes a “cameo” appearance, but his dirty paws leave their scummy prints throughout the book.

 One thing that can be cumbersome with novels is when you’re reading a story by an author given to excessively wordy descriptions.  That is not the case with Dr. Savage.  He strikes the perfect balance between story “meat” and atmosphere when describing the settings and dipping into the thoughts, life details and memories of the characters.  The reader is propelled along at a nice, steady clip throughout the entire book. 

As you may know from listening to Dr. Savage describe the book, one of the main characters, who is one of the good guys, is a Muslim woman.  Dr. Savage goes to great lengths in the story to demonstrate that he holds no animosity toward Islam, but only those who do violence because of it.  He treats the ideology much more kindly than I would have.  I consider Islam to be a poisonous cancer on the face of the earth, but he gives it respect and makes a distinction between those who kill in the name of Allah and those who do not. 

It is easily understandable that he would want to clearly demonstrate to the world that he was placed on the banned in Britain list by liars who deliberately took his words out of context to make it sound like he would like Muslims to be killed.  Nothing could be further from the truth, and Dr. Savage works hard in this novel to set the record straight on his true beliefs toward Islam and those who follow it.  

No one can read this novel without seeing an author who is quite sympathetic to the Islamic ideology and believes that terrorists are taking its teachings out of contexts when they kill.  He has long said that he respects the world’s major religions, and Abuse of Power certainly demonstrates his respect.  As I said, he is much kinder toward Islam than I would ever be. 

Just as in the pictures out of Hollywood, a trend in novels nowadays is to include gratuitous sex scenes.  I personally do not like graphic sex scenes, because they rarely add to the story; and when I encounter them in novels, I quickly skim over them to where the story resumes.  There are several sex scenes with unmarried adults in the book, and Dr. Savage tried to treat them with more discretion than I have seen from many other authors, but I believe the story would have been just fine without them, or instead, with a creative, old-fashioned “leave most of it to the imagination” treatment.  Because of the sex, some brutal violence and a smattering of profanity (no F-words, though), I would not recommend this book for children.  It is a book for adults and perhaps very mature teenagers. 

I know that there are those who dislike Dr. Savage because of his politics and opinions.  I have read and heard some of their vicious, often mindless, comments about him, and there is no doubt that some of them will come out with spiteful “reviews” of Abuse of Power simply because of who wrote the book.  However, if these anti-Savagers gave the book an honest read, I am certain they would find it to be an exciting, race-against-the-clock story. 

As his first work of fiction, Dr. Savage has hit a home run with Abuse of Power.  The story grips the reader and delivers the goods.  He has indicated that he may continue along the fiction road with another Jack Hatfield novel in the future, and that would be superb.  Dr. Savage could further develop the main characters and take us on another thrilling ride with the all-American patriot and Truth Teller, Jack Hatfield. 

Needless to say, I recommend Abuse of Power for fiction lovers everywhere.  It is an all-around good story that I have no doubt will make a great film. 

Bravo!  And, congratulations, Dr. Michael Savage!

The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they’re here, they probably do.

Over the weekend I stumbled on a story from last month that I thought had to be a joke.  It was no joke.  California lawmakers (who really need to stop making laws) have a pending piece of legislation that would make it a crime—a crime—for hotels to use flat sheets instead of fitted sheets as the bottom sheet on beds.  I could not make something like this up, even if I tried. 

The bill, which was introduced by a Democrat, of course, would also require that hotels provide long-handled equipment for maids, so that they would not have to stoop or kneel to clean bathroom floors and showers. 

From the text of the bill

“THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: 

SECTION 1.  Section 6714 is added to the Labor Code, to read:  

6714.  (a) The standards board shall, no later than September 1, 2012, adopt an occupational safety and health standard for lodging establishment housekeeping. The standard shall apply to all hotels, motels, and other lodging establishments in California. The standard shall require all of the following:  

(1) The use of a fitted sheet, instead of a flat sheet, as the bottom sheet on all beds within the lodging establishment. For the purpose of this section, a ‘fitted sheet’ means a bed sheet containing elastic or similar material sewn into each of the four corners that allows the sheet to stay in place over the mattress. 

(2) The use of long-handled tools such as mops or similar devices in order to eliminate the practice by housekeepers of working in a stooped, kneeling, or squatting position in order to clean bathroom floors, walls, tubs, toilets, and other bathroom surfaces.” 

Not only is this proposed legislation nonsense, it is also extremely expensive nonsense.  California, like most states in our nation, is suffering under the weight of this wretched economy, and businesses are already hurting.  This legislation would cost hotels millions of dollars to implement. 

As reported at the Blaze,

 “California, the state trying to deal with a massive $26 BILLION dollar debt, is considering a law that some hospitality industry experts claim would add an estimated $15 to $30 million dollars in costs to an already hurting hotel industry. The low-end estimate of fifteen million is the projected cost to purchase new fitted sheets for the 550,000 hotel beds in the state. Of course the hospitality industry is claiming that these added costs will hurt their business and put jobs at risk.” 

The Democrat who introduced this over-the-top, nanny state legislation was Kevin De Leon of Los Angeles, who claims this law is needed to protect maids from back injuries. 

So, here we go again with the state trying to save us from ourselves!  How did we ever get along without government laws heaped upon laws to dictate to us how we should live our lives in order that we don’t put an eye out?  We are seeing more of this invasive legal garbage coming out of our local, state and federal governments every year, and I see no end in sight.  We simply must get these legislators-gone-wild under control or out of office. 

In covering this story, Patrick McGreevy writing for the Los Angeles Times reported, 

“Business owners and others who have long complained that companies are overburdened by state regulations say a proposal now moving through the Legislature shows that lawmakers have lost all touch with reality: It would require that hotels use fitted sheets. 

‘We are now going to make it a crime in California not to use a fitted sheet? Really?’ state Sen. Sam Blakeslee (R-San Luis Obispo) asked during a debate before the Senate passed the measure in June. 

The bill, one of nearly 900 awaiting final action in the Legislature when it returns Monday from a monthlong recess, is intended to address back injuries sustained by hotel housekeepers. But it has revived a long-simmering debate over whether California has become a hyper-regulated ‘nanny state.’ 

In 2007, the Legislature was subject to national ridicule when it considered a bill to outlaw spanking of young children. Embarrassed lawmakers eventually shelved that proposal, but businesses have decried the Legislature’s subsequent ban on trans fats in restaurant cooking, requirement that calorie counts appear on menus, and prohibition on dairies docking cows’ tails. 

This year, businesses are crying foul over proposals to ban restaurants from cooking shark fin soup and using Styrofoam food containers — and the sheets bill.” 

The people of the United States must have been sleeping quite soundly to have allowed legislators to continue expanding their power to the point where they now dictate what a restaurant can serve.  

It is not just businesses that are hurt by all this ridiculous over-regulation, but private citizens, as well.  Another story reported on Friday by World Net Daily should give you angry chills.  Again, this is out of California. 

Bob Unruh writes,

 “Chuck and Stephanie Fromm already have been fined $300 for holding Bible studies for their friends at their home, and they face the potential for additional fines of $500 for each study held, according to a legal team taking their case to court.  

The newest conflict over Bible studies in homes in America arose in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., where city officials say city code section 9-3.301 prohibits religious organizations in residential neighborhoods without a conditional-use permit, a sometimes very expensive procedure.  

The code cites ‘churches, temples, synagogues, monasteries, religious retreats, and other places of religious worship and other fraternal and community service organizations.’  

But a Bible study in a home?  

‘Imposing a heavy-handed permit requirement on a home Bible study is outrageous,’ said Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute, which is working on the case on behalf of the Fromms 

‘In a city so rich with religious history and tradition, this is particularly egregious. An informal gathering in a home cannot be treated with suspicion by the government, or worse than any other gathering of friends, just because it is religious. We cannot allow this to happen in America, and we will fight as long and as hard as it takes to restore this group’s religious freedom.’” 

This outrage comes after similar “crackdowns” on home Bible studies occurred last year in Gilbert, Arizona and the year before in San Diego County.  Thankfully, in both of those cases, the cities backed down from their Soviet-style regulations. 

These two stories—the criminal bed sheets and “illegal” home Bible studies—although different, are completely related.  They illustrate how far our nation has fallen into a communist-style police state, where the government is all-powerful.  We are losing our freedoms daily, and too many Americans do not even realize it. 

There is no way to stop the out-of-control politicians unless many more Americans wake up to the danger our freedoms are in.  Lots of people around me, including friends and family, are oblivious to the creeping fascism in our local, state and federal governments.  If people are unwilling to open their eyes and see the chains being placed on them by government, then we will not be able to stop the power mongers from continuing their onerous law fest.  

It is not just business owners’ freedom to operate without overbearing government intrusion and freedom of religion rights of American citizens that are being stomped on, as in the home Bible study cases, but private property rights in general are also being abolished by America’s stupid cooperation with the United Nations Agenda 21 program with its “sustainable development” and “smart growth” rackets.  You have likely seen your own community impose so-called “smart codes” on building and new construction regulations.  Smart codes are just another part of the Agenda 21 scheme, which goes hand-in-hand with environmental wacko-ism. 

Under the Obama administration, we have seen a trampling of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights that has never been as extreme in the history of our nation.  And, it seems that along with the Obama administration’s hyper-speed shredding of our precious founding documents, an increase in the boldness of communist Democrat and RINO Republican legislation has occurred at the state level, as well. 

The California legislature has broken out of the sane barrier and rushed into the lunatic wilderness, and unless the citizens of the state can overcome the dead, illegal and plainly ignorant voters and get these maniacs out of office, California is toast. 

We will have to wait and see the outcome of these two stories.  A trial is set for October 7th in the case of the home Bible study group, and with almost 900 (!) pieces of pending legislation in the California Congress, it may be a while before they get to the criminal sheets caper.  In the meantime, we can pray for victory for the home Bible study Christians, and California residents can pound their state legislators with a heavy dose of sanity, not only about the criminal sheets bill, but any number of other communist bills that are on the agenda.

As we dive into the campaign season leading up to the long, long awaited 2012 election, we are seeing an increasingly desperate communist Left looking to keep Barack Obama in the White House.  As we have already seen, there is no lie brazen enough that Obama and other members of the communist Democrat party are unwilling to tell it with a straight face.  

So, it is no surprise that we now have a website that looks like some kind of lying propaganda machine resurrected from the old Soviet Union and updated with modern technology.  The website, which was created by Obama for America is called Attack Watch, and it claims to be about fighting “attacks” and “smears” against Barack Obama.  Readers are encouraged to sign up for the feeds and to report any “attack” or “smear” on Obama that they come across anywhere in the media, on the Internet, and even in emails—yes, in personal emails. 

From the Obama for America site is this teaser for Attack Watch, 

“We’ve launched a new campaign resource today: AttackWatch.com.

If you’re worried about the increasing negativity of the attacks on President Obama and his record, now’s your chance to fight back with the facts. Visit AttackWatch.com to learn the truth about frequent smears, track new attacks as they happen, and report false allegations you’ve seen or heard.

We’ve heard it all since 2008, from lies about the Affordable Care Act to false rumors that the Obama administration hasn’t been an ally to Israel. These aren’t just unfounded allegations about the President—they’re attempts to derail the momentum of this movement and undermine everything we’ve accomplished together in the last three years.

Check out AttackWatch.com to help stop these attacks before they start.” 

Oh, they had better believe we are most certainly hoping with all our might to derail the hell-born momentum and turn back all the “accomplishments” of the Obama administration! 

When visiting the Attack Watch website, the reader, like Alice, is yanked down the rabbit hole and thrust into twisted adventures in Wonderland, where up is down, black is white and the truth is a lie.  The discerning reader easily determines that what these people mean by “attacks” and “smears” is simply anyone telling the truth about the disaster for America that is called Barack Obama. 

Since the site is just now getting started, there are only a handful of “attacks” listed with so-called “facts” that purport to debunk them.  At the top, Glenn Beck is called out for his opinion that the Obama administration has betrayed Israel, one of our greatest allies.  Now, let’s see about that. 

When you go to Attack Watch’s “fact” page on Obama and Israel, the claim in large type at the top says, 

“President Obama is a friend to Israel, despite unfounded claims to the contrary.” 

Unfounded claims to the contrary?  Is that so?  

For “proof,” Attack Watch provides a few quotes, including one from Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak saying that he “can hardly remember a better period of support” for Israel than under the Obama administration.  Yet, in an Associated Press news story from April 2010, the very same Ehud Barak is quoted as saying,

“But we also shouldn’t delude ourselves.  The growing alienation between us and the United States is not good for the state of Israel.”

Boy, that’s a head-scratcher, isn’t it?  U.S. support for Israel has never been better, and there’s a growing alienation between us?

So, what’s the reality here?  Let us not forget the truth of Obama’s actions, which speak much louder than a strange sound bite from someone hoping to curry favor with the thuggish Obama administration.

Obama has treated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu despicably on Mr. Netanyahu’s visits to America.  Obama has expressed his support for the Palestinians over Israel in his outrageous and insane demand that Israel give up its own land and return to its pre-1967 borders, which would leave Israel completely vulnerable to attack by its enemies.  Obama has inserted his nose into Israel’s business by stupidly demanding that Israel not build new homes on its own land.  How dare he make such a wicked demand?

As we can already see, Attack Watch is not for the strong of mind, but it is perfectly suited for the dwindling population of Obots—Obama robots. 

What else does this website have in defense of the indefensible record of Barack Obama?

Here’s one.  Attack Watch states,

“Public figures have made outlandish claims that President Obama is planning to use a United Nations treaty to take away legal firearms from gun owners in the US.” 

Outlandish claims?  Really?  

Pardon me, but the Obama administration announced its support for the United Nations Small Arms Treaty, which would end up, as the Washington Times reported

“…making it more difficult – if not outright illegal – for law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.

… This U.N. treaty will lead to more gun control in America.

… The U.N. Small Arms Treaty opens a back door for the Obama administration to force through gun control regulations. Threats to the Second Amendment are as real today as ever.”

But, any Small Arms Treaty that comes out of the United Nations Office of Disarmament poses absolutely no threat to our Second Amendment rights according to Obama’s Attack Watch!

Perhaps the Obama administration is also hoping we will all get a collective case of amnesia and forget to remember the ongoing horrific scandal of the Fast and Furious gunrunner project which has seen U.S. government-provided weapons used by Mexican drug gangs to kill our own border agents and many Mexican citizens.  This is an abominable program that no doubt has its origins at the highest level in our government

Here is yet another criminal scandal for which the Teflon Obama administration will probably not be held accountable, and which is a transparent scheme to tear down our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

 As I wrote back in July,

“The point [of Fast and Furious] is to create a false idea—with false statistics to back it up—that American guns are the ‘problem’ and a large contributing factor to the animalistic violence near the Mexican border.  The further purpose is to cause such violent chaos, which will spill over into the U.S.—as it has already—that American citizens and lawmakers will be duped and scared into believing that even more gun control legislation is necessary to curb the gun violence in Mexico and bleeding into America.

This is nothing more than yet another attempt by the communist Left to grab our guns.  It is also one of the more despicable things I have ever seen from our government, and that’s saying a lot in light of the truly terrible things we have seen from Washington in recent years.  The investigation into this matter could reveal that our own government and agencies conspired to use millions of taxpayer dollars to put guns in the hands of maniac drug gang members in Mexico, knowing full well that those guns would be used to kill Mexican and American citizens.”

And, let’s not forget Obama and his administration’s claims that they are working on gun control “under the radar,” by possibly using executive order actions.

Attack Watch naturally attempts to lie about the so-called “Affordable Care Act” or Obamacare, as it’s commonly known.  The website makes this outrageous claim,

“The Affordable Care Act promotes quality, affordable health coverage for all Americans, regardless of the industry they work in or their union status.”

It is amazing that anyone would still believe socialized medicine—which is what Obamacare is—is better than our current medical system, even with all the fraud that occurs in the government-run Medicare and Medicaid programs.  Where in the world does socialized medicine result in “quality, affordable” health care for all people?  In truth, there is nothing good that can come from the monstrous Obamacare legislation. 

 Red State lays it out nicely in a column titled, “Ten Ways ObamaCare will Kill You.”  The points are that Obamacare will kill jobs, kill choice, kill innovation, inevitably result in rationing, cause taxes to skyrocket, kill fiscal responsibility, kill state government budgets by forcing higher Medicaid costs on states, kill the private sector health insurance industry, kill quality care from doctors by bureaucratizing the entire system and cutting quality to cut costs, and finally it will kill our freedom. 

We can plainly see that Attack Watch is simply a new version of the Fight the Smears website, which has this Obama quote at the top of its page,

 “What you won’t hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge, and patriotism as a bludgeon—that sees our opponents not as competitors to challenge, but enemies to demonize.” 

As I said, Obama and the Democrats have never met a lie they were afraid to tell. 

Another item to note is that Attack Watch is using material from George Soros’ “nonprofit” Media Matters for America organization.  It is certainly not news that Media Matters is a highly political tool of the communist Left which clearly violates the federal requirements for a 501(c)(3) entity, which is what Media Matters is. 

According to the Internal Revenue Service’s regulations,

“To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization … may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.”

Oh, but, when has this administration and its minions in Media Matters ever let the law get in their way?

Now that I have given you an overview of this new communesque Obama website and refuted a few of its lies, any Obot out there can use the handy link to Attack Watch—which is included in the transcript of this broadcast at Dakota Voice—to report this radio commentary to the White House Gestapo Attack Watch. 

Thank you, and good morning, comrades!

Originally from Texas, Gina is a graduate of William Carey College in Gulfport, MS, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Gina currently presents an audio blog on News Radio 104.9 FM in Biloxi, MS. Her blogs can be heard twice weekly on the Kipp Gregory morning show.

The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they’re here, they probably do.

As if we needed any more reasons to oppose the proposed Ground Zero victory mosque—and mosque building in America, in general—well we have one anyway.  I was contacted by a member of the Traditional Values Coalition after my “Hijacking the Memory of 9-11” radio blog aired and was published last Thursday.  She sent me a column by Andrea Lafferty who reported on a speech given by Feisal Rauf, who is heading up the proposed Ground Zero victory mosque.  Rauf has again given us more proof that he is not here in America to play well with others.

In her column, Ms. Lafferty also addressed the continuing threat from Islam within our nation, which is still very much alive even ten years after 9-11.  As she wrote,

“There is nothing that strikes deeper at the heart of the American experiment than a test of our liberties—the right to free speech, and the right of religious freedom.  It was because of these liberties that Islamist terror struck on September 11th, 2001, costing thousands of lives and bringing the realities of the world a bit closer to home.

10 years later, the Islamist threat remains. 

Yet the tactics have changed.  Rather than planes, Islamists use mosques as nerve centers for resistance.  Rather than terrorists, Islamists use imams and lawyers to drive the point home.  Rather than bombs, Islamists use deceit and deception to say one thing while the realities on the ground are far different.” 

Deception is the name of the game for an enemy who is not powerful enough to take us by force.  The Islamist enemies within America are indeed waging a campaign of deception at many levels in our country, from our public schools to our government and the media.  Muslim Brotherhood front groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations play the media like a fiddle and are quick to use our courts to bring lawsuits in the hope of advancing their campaign to destroy western civilization from within and raise the hellish standard of Shariah law in America.

In addition to deceit, another tactic of the Islamists is the attempted subversion of the United States Constitution.  As Ms. Lafferty reports, in a speech this past March, the proposed Ground Zero mosque leader Feisal Rauf openly called for the abolition of our First Amendment Constitutional right to freedom of speech.  From Ms. Lafferty’s column,

“Take for instance Imam Feisal Rauf, the presumed leader of the Islamist faction in the United States.  At a March 2011 panel at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. it was Rauf who opened up a direct attack on America’s foundational constitutional protections and rights.  Rather than allowing Islam to be engaged in the public square critically, Rauf considers any criticism of Islam as ‘libel –a hate crime.

When I watched this in the audience, I sat there outraged.  I could see the writing on the wall. 

Now we know the brazen truth.  Rauf opened the Islamist playbook and removed any doubts about the true nature of the Islamist agenda.  In short, while keeping up an ecumenical front, Rauf and other Islamists intend to openly use American laws to crush dissent, demanding our laws silence any criticism, concerns, or questions about the Islamist threat.”

From a video clip the Traditional Values Coalition posted on You Tube are Rauf’s exact words,

 “I believe that the insulting or mocking of others’ religious symbols, icons, symbols, prophets, etc., should not fall within the realm of free speech.  Mocking people, insulting people, I think, falls almost into the arena of libel.” 

There you go.  You may already know that the Islamists consider any criticism of Islam to be a crime punishable by death, which seems to be one of the more common punishments for various real or perceived offenses in Islam and Shariah law.  It really is no surprise that Feisal Rauf is spouting this subversive trash here within our country. 

The self-stated goal of the Muslim Brotherhood, to which Rauf has direct ties, is to destroy the United States and all of western civilization from within.  They despise our freedom, and they mean to kill it.

During the terror financing trial of members of the Holy Land Foundation (in which the defendants were found guilty on all counts), a Muslim Brotherhood document was entered into evidence which clearly stated the goal of taking down the West from within by stealth, subversive means.

As reported by the website Discover the Networks,

“During the course of the HLF trial, many incriminating documents were entered into evidence. Perhaps the most significant of these was ‘An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,’ by the Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram.

Written sometime in 1987 but not formally published until May 22, 1991, this 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded ‘organizations of our friends’ that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These ‘friends’ were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims ‘that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ’sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.’

Akram was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the ‘grand jihad’ that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or ‘soft’) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Sharia) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to ‘expand the observant Muslim base’; to ‘unif[y] and direc[t] Muslims’ efforts’; and to ‘present Islam as a civilization alternative.’ At its heart, Akram’s document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating ‘the global Islamic state.’” 

At this point in time, if anyone doubts the evil intentions of the leadership in the Muslim world, then he is either living under a rock or is in the same anti-American camp as the Islamists.  The evidence is clear for anyone with the smallest amount of common sense to be able to comprehend.

There is no question that the Islamists must be defeated, that their stealth jihad must be firmly squashed.  The laws of the United States are being used against us by these Muslim enemies within our nation, and that makes stopping them harder, but it is not impossible.

The Center for Security Policy provided the videos and transcript of a speech that Dutch parliament member Geert Wilders gave in Berlin on September 3rd.  In his speech, he listed some amazing accomplishments in the Netherlands in just the past year alone.  As Mr. Wilders put it, they have begun to “roll back” Islamization in the Netherlands.  How are they doing it?

As Mr. Wilders stated,

The truth is that Islam can be successfully fought with democratic means. We do so in the Netherlands. You can do so, too, in Germany! Let me tell you what we have achieved in the Netherlands since my last visit to Berlin, less than one year ago. It will encourage you. What can be done in the Netherlands can also be done in Germany.

My party, the Party for Freedom, which has 24 seats of the 150 seats in parliament, supports a minority government of Liberals and Christian-Democrats. We do this in return for measures to restrict immigration, roll back crime, counter cultural relativism, and restore our traditional Western freedoms, such as freedom of speech.

The Party for Freedom has been in this position for less than a year, but we are achieving great things. We have achieved that the Netherlands will soon ban the face-covering Islamic burkas and the niqabs!

We will restrict immigration from non-Western countries by up to 50% in the next four years! We are going to strip criminals who have a double nationality and who repeatedly commit serious crimes, of their Dutch nationality!

The Party for Freedom is bringing a message of hope to the Netherlands. The new policies will place more demands on immigrants. Integration will not be tailored to different groups anymore. There will be a tougher approach to immigrants who disobey the law. Those who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress, will see their access to welfare payments diminished.

We have also achieved that anti-Israeli activities will no longer be funded with Dutch taxes. So-called humanitarian aid organizations that directly or indirectly support anti-Israel boycotts, divestments and sanctions and that deny Israel’s right to exist will no longer get government funding.

The Dutch government will boycott the United Nation’s Durban III meeting against racial discrimination because it has been transformed into a tribunal for accusations against Israel. The government will strengthen our political and economic relations with Israel. Investment rather than divestment will be our policies towards Israel.

We stand with Israel. We love Israel. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. Israel is part of our civilization.”

Excellent, Mr. Wilders!

In Europe, where the Islamists have made much more headway than here in America, the Europeans are coming to realize the disaster that unchecked Muslim immigration is.  The riots and mayhem and infusion of Islamic Shariah law caused by the Muslims has taken its toll on European societies to the point where the leaders are finally standing up to put a stop to it.

How far will we in America allow the Islamists to go in furthering their anti-American, anti-Constitutional agenda here in our country?  We would be wise to learn a lesson that our cousins in Europe are learning almost too late.  We must put a stop to the Islamist agenda here in America before the spreading Islamist cancer of places like Dearborn, Michigan infects our entire nation.

Mr. Wilders offers practical legislation aimed at curbing the Islamist threat in the Netherlands, and his ideas should be applied and expanded in America as well.  Greatly reducing the number of immigrants from non-western and Middle Eastern countries is a grand idea.  Of course, we would also need to secure our border with Mexico to prevent Islamists from sneaking into our nation that way, too. 

If the United States Congress refuses to pass anti-Shariah legislation, then the states must do it.  It is an outrage that in some courts in America, Islamic Shariah law has been elevated over the supreme law of our land, the United States Constitution.  We must make Islamic Shariah law illegal in our nation, period!

Of course, none of this can happen unless our leaders grow a backbone and refuse to be intimidated by the loudmouthed, money-rich Muslim lobby.  That is where We the People come in.  We must demand that our local, state and federal members of government be willing to grow that spine, and if they refuse, we must elect people who will.

The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they’re here, they probably do.

It is hard to believe it has already been ten years.  It seems like just a moment ago that I was driving to work at the radio station to do my midday show on our light rock sister station.  It was on my car radio that morning, a Tuesday I will never forget, that I heard my boss, who co-hosts the morning show, announce that two jetliners had been flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center.

The information did not fully process when I first heard it.  How could it?  Nothing in my memory could relate to such a thing.  After I arrived at work, and the rest of the day’s awful events unfolded, the magnitude of the horror very slowly sunk in.  We went wall-to-wall with live coverage on the air.  I covered the events during my time slot, while scarcely believing it could really be happening.  The tears came in between my cracking of the mic to give live updates, and the bewilderment persisted in my mind.

As it became painfully clear that we had been attacked by our Islamist mortal enemies, the American people came together in a rare unity unseen in many, many decades.  In the brief and precious days after that horrific Islamic act of war against America, we stood together, prayed together, and held each other up.

Do you remember the signs and the bumper stickers that appeared all over the country?  The signs and stickers said, “We will never forget.”  Do you remember Old Glory flying in profusion everywhere you looked?  Do you remember how we loved each other and how we all felt the hellish blow across the nation, and how we each grieved the loss of our dear fellow Americans?

What has happened in ten, short years?  We have seen our nation plunged into seemingly endless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—wars it seems our leaders do not actually want to win, judging from the strange, politically correct way in which the wars are being waged, with our troops’ hands tied with outrageous rules of engagement that no sane leader would impose on his men.  With elusive victory nowhere in sight, the continuing loss of so many lives of America’s best and brightest and the wounding of so many more in these wars multiplies the pain for the wounded and the families of the dead left behind.

In ten years, we have also seen a whitewash of the enemy.  We have seen a downplaying of who it was that attacked us on that day.  We have seen endless claims from the media, politicians and other leaders that Islam is a “religion of peace;” this, despite massive amounts of evidence to the contrary.  The mountains of senselessly murdered bodies and destruction of property at the hands of Islamic maniacs clearly declare that Islam is anything but peaceful.

The common “mainstream” refrain is that Muslims who commit atrocities against their fellow man are a tiny minority and that most Muslims are so-called moderate Muslims who would never support violence in the name of Allah.  Yet, polls taken throughout the Muslim world and in the West indicate strong Muslim support for the backward, barbaric Islamic Shariah law and even modest support for terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah.

We have seen a surge in creeping Shariah law right here in America.  There have been instances of court challenges that pit Shariah against the laws of America, and we have seen American judges elevate Shariah over the United States Constitution.  I reported on one instance this past January,

“Did you know that the United States government is using your tax dollars to support Islamic Shariah law in America?  Yep.  And, a federal judge—playing for the enemy, in my opinion—has just sided against the Constitution and the American people and with the Islamists in upholding the policy.

As reported… by the Thomas More Law Center,

‘Last week, Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff, a federal district court judge in Michigan, dismissed a constitutional challenge to the U.S. Government‘s bailout of AIG [American International Group], which used over a hundred million dollars in federal tax money to support Islamic religious indoctrination through the funding and promotion of Sharia-compliant financing (SCF). SCF is financing that follows the dictates of Islamic law.

… Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of TMLC, commented: ‘Judge Zatkoff’s ruling allows for oil-rich Muslim countries to plant the flag of Islam on American soil. His ruling ignored the uncontested opinions of several Sharia experts and AIG’s own website, which trumpeted Sharia-compliant financing as promoting the law of the Prophet Mohammed and as an ethical product, ‘and a new way of life.’ His ruling ignored AIG’s use of a foreign Islamic advisory board to control investing in accordance with Islamic law.’

Continued Thompson: ‘This astonishing decision allows the federal government as well as AIG and other Wall Street bankers to explicitly promote Sharia law—the 1200-year-old body of Islamic canon law based on the Koran, which demands the destruction of Western Civilization and the United States. This is the same law championed by Osama bin Laden and the Taliban; it is the same law that prompted the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks; and it is the same law that is responsible for the murder of thousands of Christians throughout the world. The Law Center will do everything it can to stop Sharia law from rearing its ugly head in America.’”

One of the most breathtakingly audacious things we have seen since 9-11 is the brazen attempt by Islamists to erect a monster victory mosque just two short blocks from Ground Zero.  This is one of the more disgusting affronts to America in the wake of those Muslim terror attacks.  The astonishing thing about this proposed mega-mosque is that it has the support of the leaders of New York!  What kind of insane thinking inhabits the minds of Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the other city officials who gave a thumbs-up to this diabolical project?

In May of last year, I expressed my outrage in one of several columns I have written on this subject,

“The more I think about this, the angrier I become.  By now you’ve heard of the plans by a group of Muslims to build a 13 to 15-story mosque and Muslim “cultural” center just two blocks north of Ground Zero in Manhattan.

Last year, a Muslim real estate company, Soho Properties, bought the building at Park Place for 4.85 million in cash (where that money came from remains to be seen).  This site was a Burlington Coat Factory until September 11, 2001 when part of one of the hijacked plane’s landing gear fell through the roof of the building.  The Factory has been closed since 9-11. The leader of the project to build the mammoth mosque is Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, who blamed the United States for 9-11 because of our treatment of Muslims.  He said that Osama Bin Laden was ‘made in the USA.’

… Amazingly enough, this project has received the support of some city leaders, including the Manhattan Community Board which voted unanimously to allow the project to proceed.

… To deny that Islam is at war with the West is foolish.  The Islamists have a powerful advantage in America because of our constitutional laws of religious freedom.  Although Islam and Shariah law are more akin to a political ideology, they are regarded as a legitimate religion, therefore they are protected under our laws.  This protection has allowed the creeping, stealth invasion of Islam in America.

Don’t doubt for a minute that this is about Muslim conquest and making a bold statement to the Muslim world, a mere stone’s throw from the site of Ground Zero.  They are not able to openly overrun our country, so they are trying to take us down from within, incrementally, by taking advantage of our laws and freedoms.  If this abomination to the families of 9-11 victims and all of America is allowed to be built, it sends a powerful sign of victory to Muslims around the world.

… America has to quit regarding Islam as just another ordinary religion.  It is no such thing, and if we don’t wake up to the fact that Islam is at war with us, we may one day wake up with our head in their hands.”

One small blessing in this ordeal is that the Ground Zero mosque is still not yet built, and their wicked goal of having the grand opening on the 10th anniversary of 9-11 will not happen.

Dick Morris reported on Tuesday that his group delivered the signatures of over 70,000 people to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation protesting the $5 million in federal grant money for which the Ground Zero mosque developers had the gall to apply.  It is unimaginable that America would allow a monster mega-mosque at Ground Zero, much less that federal taxpayer money would be donated to the building of it.  But I guess we should not be surprised at this, since we currently have a Muslim-sympathetic communist in the White House.

Speaking of Barry Soetoro, or whatever his name is, a very tricky and subtle hijacking of the memory of 9-11 has taken place under his stay in the United States presidency.  Shortly after Obama took office, September 11th was declared to be a “national day of service” by the Democrat-controlled Congress.  Some families of 9-11 victims had reportedly started a day of remembrance tradition on the anniversary of 9-11, and now the Obama administration has latched on to it and patched it on to a Democrat program. 

Now, this may not seem like a big deal to some, but this is nothing more than another attempt to redefine and distract from the events of September 11, 2001.  Instead of being a day of remembrance of our lost loved ones and the enemies who took them from us, this national service campaign co-opts 9-11 to make it a part of Obama’s “United We Serve” program.  The congressional legislation that made this “official” sounds like something targeting kids during 1930s Germany.

For Barack Obama to push his volunteer service agenda, he did not need to hijack September 11th.  September 11th should not be a day to push the communist Left’s agenda, but if you look at the legislation in which 9-11 was declared a national day of service, you will see the Left’s paw prints all over it.  With 37 cosponsors, all Democrats, the “The Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act” of 2009 sounds like a program for creating the Hitler Youth brigade right here in America.  Please pay close attention to what the public schools are teaching your kids.

So, here we are, just a few days away from ten years after.  I find it astonishing that we have allowed the Islamists to continue their creeping invasion of our nation.  They have invaded our government, our military and other major institutions.  No one is stopping them right now, but the good news is that more and more Americans are waking up to the diabolical intentions of the Islamists and are working to put a stop to them.  Their own stated goals for the destruction of western civilization by stealth invasion should tell us all we need to know and should steel our resolve to firmly resist their subversive efforts.

On this tenth anniversary of 9-11, I will remember.  I will not forget the earthly Islamic enemies of America, and I will continue to do what little I can to sound the alarm on the increasing danger they represent to our freedoms, our American way of life and our very life itself.

The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they’re here, they probably do.

Excluding Florida Republican Rep. Col. Allen West, who is an honorable American war hero and conservative patriot, today I have a few words for California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters and the various other deceitful people in the Congressional Black Caucus and their fellow-traveling leftists who are falsely accusing and attacking the taxpaying American citizens who foot the bill for this monster federal government and bloated welfare state that you all so dearly covet, because of the votes and power it brings you.  Are you listening?  Good.  Your evil, stupid shtick is not working.  America sees through your lying, degenerate words.

You can be certain that your unthinking minions will continue to cheer you and squeal in delight when you tell the Tea Party to go to hell.  Oh, sure!  But if you believe we are going to stand down and be quiet in the face of your idiot, slanderous rantings, you have another guess coming.  We are sick of your shameless lies to your poor constituents who you keep shackled to the dead-end Democrat plantation.  Yes!  You’re keeping those people down by your unscrupulous policies of creating generational addiction to taxpayer money handouts!  What you are doing is truly disgusting.

Now you see a powerful movement of American patriots who have had quite enough of your wicked policies which have brought our country to the point of bankruptcy.  Now you see these patriots, these Tea Party people, finally standing up and saying, “Enough!”  The Tea Party people care deeply about this country and the citizens here.  We want a future for our kids and grandkids—a future that does not include slavery to the government and bondage to government debt that we can never be taxed enough to repay.

We want the government to step off our backs and get its fiscal house in order.  We want the government to return to the principles outlined in the United States Constitution.  In other words, we want the leaders in Washington to respect and obey the law of our land and the oaths they swore when taking office.

This is supremely threatening to you.  Your unchecked power is in our crosshairs.  You are seeing the American people coming fully awake to your treacherous behavior, and you see that we aim to stop you.  You see that we are on to your shameless game.  You see that the Tea Party possesses great influence, because the We the People are now unified against you as never before, and we will not be turned aside or distracted from your lawlessness.

You have no legitimate argument against our points and demands.  You have no defense for this anti-American Obama administration and the myriad outrages against the Constitution that have been enacted since January 2009.  You cannot debate us on the issues, because you are dead wrong.  Since you have no defense for your hellish policies, you cling to the one weapon that you imagine will be effective against us:  the false accusation of racism.  You have worn the racist sword to a dull nub, yet you still brandish it as though it flashes brightly and cuts true.  You apparently do not see how pathetic you look waving an empty hilt at a phantom enemy.

The fact is that you will continue to look ever more foolish as this wretched administration nears the end of its term.  The more the Obama team continues on its lawless trek, the more stupid your slanderous, racist campaign will be.

The almost humorous irony here is the fact that you accuse us of racism as though you are unaware that your entire existence is based on racism.  The Congressional Black Caucus?  If your desire is for all Americans to be united and free from racism, then why are you deliberately creating a separate, exclusive group based on skin color?  How would you like to see a Congressional White Caucus?  Silly, huh?

You people are the real racists, and we all know it.  You are the ones who want nothing to do with unity.  You want division.  You want strife.  You want to set this nation on fire.  That is your goal with this diabolical campaign in which you whip your constituents up into a misguided lather with phenomenal lies about the people of the Tea Party.

In the past few weeks, we have been seeing your battle plan unfolding.  We have heard the most vicious, lying words from despicable people like Maxine Waters, who told the Tea Party that we can go straight to hell, and she intends to help us get there.  Is that a threat, Ms. Waters?  And, do you imagine that is the kind of thing an elected representative of the American people should be saying?  You are detestable, Ms. Waters, as are some of the other members of your racist Black Caucus who continue to slander the people who love this country and do not want to see it destroyed by your own ignorant policies.

By now, we have all heard the reprehensible, lying words of another member, Rep. Andre Carson (IN), a black Muslim, who stupidly declared that Tea Party members of Congress would love to see blacks become second-class citizens, and worse, to see blacks hanging on a tree.  Mr. Carson, you claimed that Tea Party efforts to restore fiscal sanity demonstrate a desire to return to the Jim Crow era.  What an utterly loathsome thing to say, not to mention completely senseless!  How dare you speak such trash?!  How dare you flat-out lie about the Tea Party platform?  And, you are a member of Congress?  Really?!  You know full well that the Tea Party platform has absolutely nothing to do with anyone’s race, you vicious, liar!

The same is true of the previously obscure Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson (FL), who declared that the Tea Party is the enemy.  Now, I suppose in a sense, she is right, but her implication to her audience could not be further from the truth.  She was speaking at a meeting held prior to a job fair in Florida that was put on by the Congressional Black Caucus, so she was speaking to constituents, and she was telling them that their fellow Americans in the Tea Party are the enemy.  That’s a damned lie, Ms. Wilson.

The Tea Party is the enemy of big government, of massive, out-of-control government spending, of excessive taxation and expensive, burdensome regulation.  In other words, we are the enemy of your agenda, Ms. Wilson, Ms. Waters, Mr. Carson and the rest of you race-mongering lunatics. 

We are not the enemy of your black constituents.  In fact, we care deeply about our fellow American citizens, and we want them to be the best they can possibly be.  We want them to be free from the shackles of your wicked agenda.  Conservative policies are the ones that give the greatest opportunity for everyone, but it is your leftist, socialist policies that keep people down and in perpetual poverty when they choose to sign on to the addictive fix of your terrible taxpayer money handout racket that robs people of their dignity and their will to better themselves.

If only the black voters, who, against all reason and sanity, vote overwhelmingly Democrat, would wake up and see that their Democrat leaders do not have the interests of the people at heart.  You Democrat leaders only care for wealth and power over the people.

Last November, Star Parker summed it up nicely in her column, “Why Do Blacks Still Buy the Government Plantation Lie?”

“Why are blacks, who know life on the government plantation better than whites, and who are proportionately being hit much harder in this difficult economy, still buying what working class whites have rejected hands down? That, as Karl Rove put it, ‘…we can spend our way to prosperity?’

The problem is broader and deeper. Blacks still by and large see government dependence as the remedy rather than the disease, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. They still choose to listen to left wing black political leadership and media who have careers in keeping it all going.

Consider that it was welfare state government policies that caused this economic collapse to begin with. And that it was community activist groups claiming to represent the interests of minorities who lobbied for these policies.

… Now we are left cleaning up the mess and picking up the pieces. But a tragic and ironic footnote is that black Americans, whose interests community activist groups who lobbied for all this were supposedly representing, have taken the brunt.

Black’s, [sic] whose home ownership rates skyrocketed during the government stoked boom, now have foreclosure rates twice that of whites. And, of course, black unemployment in this economic slowdown following the collapse is double that of whites.

If there was a moment of doubt that most Americans were going to buy into the government plantation lie, this last election should clear things up.

But this election also tells us we still have a divided country and many who bought the big government lie in the past still aren’t getting it.

We’ve got a lot of work to do.” 

Ms. Parker nailed it, and yes, we have a ton of work to do.

Most certainly excepting Rep. Col. Allen West, who I admire, you, the racist members of the Congressional Black Caucus and the other deranged members of the radical left in the media and elsewhere—you are the true enemies of America.  You are the true enemies of freedom and prosperity.  You with your abominable lying words and your violent rhetoric are the true enemies of peace.  Your idiot rantings will backfire on you.  You will only hurt your hellish cause, which is a good thing.  The more you screech your lunacy, the more clearly we see your dark hearts that hold no love for America and the American people.

Meanwhile, those of us on the Right, those of us who agree with the Tea Party platform, those of us who love this country, will continue to fight this lawless administration and the power mongering members of Congress.  We will continue to work toward giving the boot to Barack Obama in the next election and replacing as many of you socialist leftists in Congress that we possibly can.

And, while I have not doubt that you will keep on stupidly spouting your nonsensical, evil, lies against Tea Party patriots, we will all wait and see how that moronic strategy works out for you in November 2012.

The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they’re here, they probably do.

It has been a very eventful summer for the radical homosexual activist camp.  There seems no end to the stories of homosexual pressure groups pushing their wicked agenda.  Brian Camenker and the other members of Mass Resistance continue to stand on the front lines in the battle against the homosexual crusade in our nation.  It is not wise to underestimate the danger to our country from this evil movement.  

For decades we have seen the insidious infiltration of our educational system, the media and entertainment industries, and our government by the forces of radical homosexuality.  Just since Barack Obama has invaded the United States presidency, he has appointed more than 200 homosexuals to positions in his administration. 

Parents appear to have been largely unaware of the programming that has been occurring in the public schools that has led to the younger generations now largely seeing nothing wrong with homosexuality.  It is now likely that many more kids have chosen to embrace that lifestyle than would otherwise have done so without such influence.  

If you think I am exaggerating about the targeting of our kids, just do an Internet search of “homosexual indoctrination public schools,” and you will see countless stories that will turn your stomach, but you will also see that this movement of perversity is being met with firm resistance by those of us who know the truth about that dead-end way of life. 

America is in danger of surpassing the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah, if it has not already done so.  If we continue to allow our nation to slide ever deeper into the abyss of sexual perversion, how can we expect it to go any better for us than it did for those evil cities of old?  We can’t.  That is what makes the work of groups like Mass Resistance so vital to our nation’s welfare.  These people are fervently fighting to keep America on this side of the burn pile. 

Here is a roundup report of some of the latest devilry of the radical homosexual movement as documented by Mr. Camenker of Mass Resistance. 

In July, the United States Senate confirmed the first openly homosexual man to the federal judiciary.  This man, J. Paul Oetken, is not only openly homosexual, but he is a radical homosexual activist with an alarming history of extremism, especially for someone who is now, against all sanity, a lifetime appointee of the federal court. 

As reported by Mass Resistance,

“You can’t make this stuff up.

Massachusetts US Sen. Scott Brown and over two dozen other Senate Republicans voted on July 18 to confirm J. Paul Oetken, an ‘out’ homosexual activist, as US District Judge for the Southern District of New York.

Oetken… has a history of radical activism.

Joining Brown in voting ‘yes’ were John McCain and 26 other Republicans, along with all of the Democrats. See the 80-13 roll call vote HERE

In Brown’s case, it indicates his continuing leftward slide, following his vote last December to repeal ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (and thus homosexualize the US military). And it is clearly another victory for the Obama administration, which has placed over 200 active homosexuals in various federal positions.” 

I am sitting here wondering what on earth the Senate Republicans were thinking in voting “yes” on this guy.  The Democrats are in the majority, so you would think the Republicans would stand on their supposed conservative values and at least register a protest vote of “no,” even though they could not stop this confirmation.  Tragically, that is not the case, and we even saw Republican senators like Jeff Sessions of Alabama voting “yes” to confirm this radical deviant to the federal bench.  I’m glad to say our two senators here in Mississippi, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, voted “no” on the guy; however, they both turned around a few days later and voted to raise the debt ceiling.  We will not forget that wrongheaded vote by Mr. Cochran and Mr. Wicker.

Any Senator with even half a rational brain could take a quick glance at Oetken’s background and be able to determine that he is a supremely bad choice for the federal bench.  In reporting on Oetken’s background, Mass Resistance notes,

“From a traditional values perspective, it would be hard to imagine a more unsavory candidate for a federal judgeship.

As Attorney Frank J. Bleckwenn recently reported in WorldNetDaily regarding Oetken:

Oetken’s background telegraphs sympathy and support for liberal judicial activism and a strong, almost obsessive, devotion to homosexual causes.

[Regarding Oetken’s background]… For nine years Oetken has been a member of the liberal American Constitution Society, which supports ‘the struggle for LGBT equality’ including the ‘Employment Non-Discrimination Act’ (ENDA) and the judicial overturning of the Proposition 8 vote in California.

… He authored an article in defense of a lower court’s striking down a federal ban on the use of controlled substances to assist suicide.

… He co-authored an amicus brief on behalf of the National Gay and Lesbian Law Association challenging the constitutionality of the Texas law banning homosexual sodomy.

… In his Senate questionnaire he reports his memberships (past or present) in Lambda Legal, the ACLU LGBT Project, the Human Rights Campaign, DOJ Pride, GAYLAW (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Attorneys of Washington), and the National LGBT Bar Association. (Lambda Legal supports same-sex marriage and ‘transgender rights,’ as do the ACLU’s LGBT Project, and HRC.)

… Among his 10 ‘most significant litigated matters,’ Oetken lists two cases challenging bans on homosexual sex acts.

… Of the four speeches he lists in his questionnaire, at least three had to do with sodomy laws and/or LGBT issues.” 

This is simply unbelievable, and this lifetime appointment to such an important position in our country is an abomination to our judicial system, period.  Any Senate Republican who voted to confirm this man should be ashamed, at the very least, and should most certainly lose the votes of true conservatives in America.

And, the homo-news roundup continues.  Back in the mid-1980s, as the AIDS epidemic was raising its cursed head, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wisely declared that homosexual men could not be blood donors.  The reason is pure common sense: the safety of the general public depends on a clean blood supply, and after thousands of people received the AIDS virus through blood transfusions, it became clear that homosexual men, who represent the overwhelming majority of AIDS cases, should not be allowed to give blood.

Well, guess what!  Now there is a hard push underway by radical homosexual activists and homo-sympathetic politicians to return to insanity and allow homosexual men to donate blood, thereby putting the nation’s blood supply in danger of being potentially lethal to those who receive transfusions. 

Mass Resistance reports that the FDA has firmly resisted lobbying to remove the ban on homosexual men donating blood, but this latest effort is being led in the United States Congress by Democrat Senator John Kerry (MA) and Democrat Representative Mike Quigley (IL).  Disgustingly enough, Barack Obama’s Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is also helping with the diabolical effort.

Another very disturbing aspect of this ramped-up push is that the Red Cross is in support of the insane campaign to remove the ban.  Mass Resistance noted that the Red Cross appears to have,

“… become hugely pro-gay in recent years. In many people’s opinions, the organization cannot be trusted on these issues.”

The column goes on to list two articles about the Red Cross’ support of homosexual causes:

“American Red Cross Fires Employee for Refusal to Celebrate ‘Gay and Lesbian Pride Month’ “

“Red Cross, blood centers lobby to end ban on gay men donating blood”

The Mass Resistance report summarizes,

“This is very serious. If this rule is lifted, if you or a member of your family ever need a blood transfusion, you could be a potential AIDS victim, as happened to so many innocent people before the ban was put in place. Like most of what the Left and the homosexual movement does, this pressure and lobbying effort is not about improving public health. It’s about pushing a political agenda. They literally don’t care about the average American.”

And, the final roundup item is the participation of Boston Red Sox baseball team members in the making of a video supporting two radical homosexual programs that target kids.

Mass Resistance reports,

“Red Sox manager Terry Francona and star players Jason Varitek and Kevin Youkilis are featured in a well-polished video put out by the Boston Red Sox last month to support the homosexual websites It Gets Better and The Trevor Project which target troubled kids with a pro-homosexual (and transgender) message. ‘It Gets Better’ was founded by Dan Savage, an anti-Christian homosexual activist pornographer with a history of angry, extremely obscene attacks on various conservative public figures.

… The video, posted on the Red Sox website and also on You Tube, uses emotional language by the baseball celebrities to reinforce the subliminal message that kids should be who they are — i.e., born gay (or transgender) — and feel free to continue to act out their homosexuality, because eventually as a gay or trans adult they will have a wonderful life. As Varitek tells kids ‘It’s OK to be your own unique being . . . It gets better.’”

So, there you go.  Add the Boston Red Sox to the growing list of sports franchises jumping on board the Gay Train bound for Dead End Junction.

This homosexual news roundup is just a small sampling of the many, many stories out there right now.  The radical homosexual movement has its very best friend currently squatting in the White House.  Barack Obama is the best thing that has ever happened to this devilish movement here in America, and it is unlikely that we will see much improvement in the battle against the homosexual onslaught in our nation until that man is deposed from office, and a purge of homosexuals and other leftist radicals in his administration takes place.

Until then, we will continue to fight the radical homosexual movement and pray that God will have mercy on this wayward nation and not visit upon us the due judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they’re here, they probably do.

The communist Left in the media and government has been trying desperately, and against all truth and reason, to label as terrorists those of us who identify, or are involved with, the Tea Party movement.  When it comes to those on the radical Left, truth is the very first casualty in the content their thoughts, speech and actions.  Let’s take a look at where the real terrorism is occurring, and this time, we’ll take a break from the most obvious answer of the Islamists. 

We have watched recently as brutish union behavior has been on ugly display.  Earlier this year in Wisconsin, union members threw the most ridiculous of fits when it became apparent that they would be required to contribute just a little bit toward their healthcare and pensions.  The same happened in Ohio.  Oh, the horror!  Welcome to our world—the real world—kiddos! 

Now we have news out of Lambertville, Michigan, which is near Toledo, Ohio, that attempted murder may be another union standard.  As reported by numerous sources in the past few days, a non-union small business owner has been the repeated target of union harassment and vandalism, and last Wednesday he was shot and wounded by someone who is quite likely a union member. 

From a story at The Blaze,

“We’ve all heard the stories of shakedowns and bullying that occurs to many non-unionized workers and private business owners. However, the thuggery might have gone beyond the pale recently when one Ohio business owner was repeatedly harassed, then shot and almost killed, for allegedly being non-union.

John King owns one of Toledo’s largest non-union electrical contracting businesses. With 25 employees and an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, King’s business reportedly often thrives while other unionized electrical contracting businesses fail due to their higher rates.

… But King’s success, especially during the recession, may have come with a price, including lawsuits, harassment, slashed tires and multiple incidents of vandalism, just to name a few.

… But last Wednesday the attacks grew more heinous when King discovered an individual on his property attempting to vandalize his SUV.  When King yelled at the man to stop, the vandal shot King, hitting him in the arm.

According to [the Labor Union Report] LUR, police recovered a shell casing from the scene the night of the shooting in addition to a Swiss Army knife. The knife was presumably going to be used to slash King’s tires yet again.

LUR reports that neither the police nor King are certain which union was behind the attack, but given that the word ‘SCAB’ was scrawled on King’s vehicle, there is a good indication the incident was union-related.” 

The word scab is a derogatory slang term used to describe someone who is hired to do the union job of a striking worker or someone who refuses to join a union.  If the assailant had not written that graffiti on Mr. King’s truck, this may have been written off by police as just another Joe Blow bad guy possibly out to vandalize or steal a vehicle.  As it is, there is little doubt the unions are behind this vicious crime.

It is going to become more and more apparent as our economy continues to get worse, that the unions are the ones who will not hesitate to use terrorist tactics to get their wrong-headed way.  The fact that the states and federal government can not afford the exorbitant salaries and pensions of these union workers does not matter a bit to the unions.  In the selfish world of the entitlement mentality, it’s “I, me, mine” all the time, and the financial facts be damned.

In light of the attack on John King, who are the real terrorists, members of the Tea Party?  Of course, not.  The attempted murder of Mr. King is one example.  Another comes from a story reported Tuesday night by WorldNetDaily’s Aaron Klein.  Inspired by Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground’s “Days of Rage,” unions are looking to take their moronic grievances in a most rowdy manner to the “evil, rich” men of Wall Street and across the United States.  As Aaron Klein reports,

“In the wake of Britain’s riots, a group of American radicals are planning a ‘Day of Rage’ targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism.

The upcoming protests, replete with a planned tent city in downtown Manhattan, is closely tied to the founders of ACORN and leaders of major U.S. unions, including the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU.

There are indications the protesters are training to incite violence, resist arrest and disrupt the legal system.

The protest aims to take root nationwide.

Activists are advertising on social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter for a ‘Day of Rage’ on Sept. 17 to begin with the ‘occupation’ of Wall Street and continue with protests across the nation.

Planners have their own website – USDayofRage.org – which tells protesters to ‘bring your own tent.’

The website is not specific about the purpose of the ‘Day of Rage’ other than calling for ‘integrity’ to be ‘restored to our elections.’

The site accuses corporations of using ‘money to act as the voices of millions, while individual citizens, the legitimate voters, are silenced and demoralized by the farce.’”

That’s just great.  Here is what we have to look forward to in September—the New London riots here at home. 

Once more we see the ignorant, childish thinking of Marxist class envy and warfare, as if it is not those among us with money who provide jobs for the rest of us!  I’m sick of these delusional Marxist brats who will not stop until our nation’s financial system is destroyed and we are all in chains!  They apparently do not know where their ideas lead, or they refuse to learn from history.  Take a look at communist/socialist countries around the world and throughout history!  Communism and socialism never end well for the people!  These union and ACORN protesters are stupidly blind!

I love the way my Editor at Dakota Voice, Bob Ellis, recently put it when writing about the dead-wrong thinking of those who spit on capitalism.  In part, he wrote,

“Leftists, in their blind hatred against anything capitalist or free market, see ‘corporation’ and are like a bull who sees red: the logic centers of the brain immediately shut down, coherent thought grinds to a halt and they can only make a rage-filled charge at the object of their angst.

They manage to forget that people own corporations, and those people retain their rights–both their property rights and their right to free speech.  They manage to forget, too, that people work at these corporations, and when you punish a corporation for being successful, you are punishing people for being corporately successful–most of whom are the so-called middle and lower class that Marxists ostensibly are in love with.   These Marxists also manage to forget that, inasmuch as market forces and competition will bear, when their zeal to raise costs (including taxes) on businesses raises the cost of doing business, those corporations pass along that additional cost to whom?  To the people who buy their products–again, usually the middle and lower classes Marxists claim to love so much.

So when you get all ginned up and eager to ‘stick it to the corporations,’ who are you really sticking it to?  People, my friend.  You Marxist idiots are sticking it to the very people of whom you claim to be the self-appointed protectors.  Smart, huh?  Well, Marxists have never been known for being smart.”

There is yet another excellent analysis from Bob Ellis of Dakota Voice!

But, the union and ACORN hoods planning to bring the London riots to our nation next month will not likely listen to such words of truth.  They are wedded to their faulty thinking which has been bred into generations of minds and hearts by leftist radicals who live to create more of their own wicked kind.  Never mind that America has given these ingrates the highest standard of living in the history of the world, and never mind that it is the capitalist system that has given anyone who would reach out and grab it the opportunity to gain the American Dream of their choosing.  No, they have their hell-born ideology, and they’re sticking to it.

Meanwhile, Tea Party members continue to be reviled as terrorists by those on the communist Left who support the bad behavior of the unions.  If they see the outrageous irony in calling peaceful patriots terrorists while ignoring the actual terroristic tactics of the union mob Left, they give no indication that they do.  We can clearly see who the real terrorists are, and it’s not Tea Party members.

It is a blessing that Mr. King was not killed in that evil attack.  He is reported to be offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator.

I’m afraid that this is only the beginning of such atrocious behavior on the part of unions and their fellow travelers desperate to keep hold of their wealth and Democrat political power.  As it becomes more and more evident that we cannot afford union largesse, and as small-government conservatives fight ever more to curtail union power and costs, the unions will become more terroristic in their activity.  I do not see how it is avoidable.  We are a desperately divided nation, and there can be no compromise between the two polar opposites.

Those of us on the conservative Right must continue to stand firm with all our might and to pray for our nation.  The future looks bleak, but we will not stop speaking out and doing what we can to keep our beloved United States from falling into the Marxist abyss where dismal darkness abounds.
