Last 9-11 Cookout at Walter Reed

This past Friday I was in Washington DC for the Restore Honor Rally. It was amazing. 500,000 people showed up to hear Glenn, Sarah Palin, Dr Alveda King and various ministers, rabbis, and imams encourage America to turn back to God and get right.

The rally was on Saturday. On Friday, as I always do when I am in DC, I went to Walter Reed Army Medical Center to join my Freeper friends as they show appreciation for the sacrifices made by this generation of Warriors.

I had sent an email the week before to the CSM of WRAMC asking for permission to hold another cookout on 10 September. I say another, because we have been doing this every year since 2007. He called me on Friday afternoon to tell me it looked as if we would be able to do it. Friday night, after spending two hours downtown with Marcus Luttrell , I made my way to WRAMC.

After the usual greetings, hugs, high fives, and catcalls to the SEIU protesters down the block, (Medea Benjamin of Code Pink fame is no longer involved and is facing felony intimidation charges on a seperate incident involving the family of Blackwater CEO Erik Prince. More on that later) I made my way to the tent the Freepers have set up in the church parking lot across the street from the Main Gate at Elder Street and Georgia Ave. I noticed a soldier in ACU's kneeling in front of a young man in a wheelchair. When he stood up, I saw the black eagle of a full bird Colonel. It was the Garrison Commander. Colonel McHugh, who had come out to tell us how much he appreciated us being there.

I introduced myself and asked if the CSM had mentioned the cookout. He said "no, but thats nothing new. The CSM never tells me anything. Why involve the brass?" I explained who we are and what we do. He said he thought it sounded like a great idea and if the CSM knew and had approved, he wasn't about to intefere.

So here is the plan. Walter Reed is closing. On 15 September 2010, the countdown to closure begins. On 11 September 2011, WRAMC will be turned over to the State Department and all wounded and hospital staff will be split between the new Walter Reed being built at Bethesda Naval Hospital and the newly renovated hospital facility at Ft Belvoir in Virginia.

This will be the last 9/11 Memorial Cookout at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. We need your help. Cooking with the Troops is a not for profit corporation dedicated to providing hot nutritious meals to wounded Warriors, their families, staff and caregivers. It is the combination of the efforts of C. Blake Powers, our CEO (Laughing Wolf on Blackfive) and the informal impromptu cookouts I've held over the last 5 years. We'd like to make this last event one for the history books. In order to do that, we need help with funding. If you can spare even 5 bucks, I promise you it will be put to good use. We have donation links at www.cwtt.org.

Best Picture Ever

This picture was taken from the top of the Washington Monument.
Don't believe any crowd estimate less than 250,000. I believe there were 500,000 there.
There is an equal number of people on both sides of this picture and the lawn in front of the Washington Monument was full after 1200.

The Islamization of Europe

Wherever we stand, we stand with Israel.

Europe's Mosque Wars
Soeren Kern - Hudson New York, August 18th, 2010

Critics say the construction of mosques is part of a strategy for the Islamization of Europe. They point to comments by Muslim leaders like Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has bragged: "The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers." Erdogan has also told Turkish immigrants in Germany that "assimilation is a crime against humanity." See article 1 "Europe's Mosque Wars" for more information on this disturbing trend.

Sharia Law Is Illegal In This Country

Why are we obliged to accept the presence of Sharia and Islamic laws or values anywhere in our society if adherence to them demands the violation of our laws? Must we accept this simply because they arrive under the banner of religion? Is not freedom of speech a basic right for all Americans, even Muslim women? Sharia says no. Are those women chattel? Should all religions be subordinated to Islam (if tolerated at all) in civil society? Should we not prosecute honor killings? Do we want legal sanctions, as Sharia has, for violating dietary laws (Michael Bloomberg, the trans fat Mayor of NY not withstanding).

Islam – Phobia or Simple Misunderstanding?

The very politically incorrect joke goes, "The Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, George Bush, and a moderate Muslim are standing on four corners of a road with a ten dollar bill in the middle. Who got the ten dollar bill? George Bush of course. The other three are fairy tale characters."

The problem we face at the Mosque and elsewhere is not one of moderate Islam versus an extreme or perverted version. The problem is with the fundamental nature of Islam itself. Read the Koran, listen to the Imams. One need not be selective in the passages he chooses, just try to understand what the Koran is commanding the faithful to do. For anyone who still has doubts after that, play back the tape of millions of wildly cheering Muslims from Cairo to London after the 9/11 attacks.

The US is a Christian nation. No, you don't have to be Christian to be a citizen, but we are a nation of laws, and our laws are derived from natural law and are consistent with Christian teachings. Simply put, laws are born of values, and in the US that means Christian values. Most faiths share these values, and thus practicing them presents no problem. However, Islam and Sharia law are different. They are inconsistent with those values, inconsistent with our laws, and therefore Islam should be treated like any outlaw organization that sets itself above our law.

Why are we obliged to accept the presence of Sharia and Islamic laws or values anywhere in our society if adherence to them demands the violation of our laws? Must we accept this simply because they arrive under the banner of religion? Is not freedom of speech a basic right for all Americans, even Muslim women? Sharia says no. Are those women chattel? Should all religions be subordinated to Islam (if tolerated at all) in civil society? Should we not prosecute honor killings? Do we want legal sanctions, as Sharia has, for violating dietary laws (Michael Bloomberg, the trans fat Mayor of NY not withstanding). You get the point.

Foreign law has no standing in the US (liberal justices notwithstanding), and neither does religious law. We should use every means possible to eradicate illegal and often treasonous teachings from all sources which require the breach of our law. There is nothing inconsistent with following Christianity (or Judaism, or Buddhism, or Scientology), and following American law. But there is a huge conflict between following Islam and following US law. If we are to remain a nation where the law, our law, continues to reign supreme, it is not only our right but our obligation to fight against any person or organization that would undermine them.

The Mosque Must Go

The argument that the proposed mosque near Ground Zero is an issue of religious freedom misses the point. We all agree that worship is constitutionally protected. The real question is, does anyone have the right to build a monument where ever they want to what they believe was a great military victory over the United States? Would the United States have the right, under private property laws in Japan, to build a monument to the bombing of Hiroshima or Nagasaki on those sites? I think not.

The argument that this proposal will be a monument to a battle victory of radical Islam at Ground Zero has a lot of evidence supporting it. Certainly throughout history Islam has built monuments in the form of Mosques on the sites of many battle victories. Imam Rauf, the promoter, has said many things (you have heard them all) that supports that contention here. If this would simply be a place of worship with the added purpose to reach out to Islam's neighbors, why would the Imam fight for this particular sight? He would create a mountain of goodwill before even breaking ground if he went elsewhere. But if this is a victory monument, fighting for that location makes good sense. I think his refusal to change locations betrays his real motive.

To those who would argue we can not know what is in his mind, rather we can only guess at his innermost motives, I would agree. We can not know with absolute certainty, in fact we can not even know beyond a reasonable doubt. But knowing with that degree of certainty is not necessary for the state to exercise its authority. This is not a criminal case. Different standards of proof are intentionally set in different areas of the law. A civil case need not meet the standard of proof that a criminal case does. If the smell test were applied, this proposal would fail miserably. I believe that whatever standard is ultimately applied, the Imam’s own statements leave only one reasonable conclusion. The mosque should not be built.

Well done. VERY well done, indeed

Operation Iraqi Freedom

The 4th SBCT is the last combat brigade to leave theater. Photo by Sgt. Kimberly Johnson Photo from StrategyPage.com

Apparently, we've won. The last* combat brigade has entered Kuwait.

The 4th Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, which left Iraq this week, was the final U.S. combat brigade to be pulled out of the country, fulfilling the Obama administration's pledge to end the U.S. combat mission by the end of August. About 50,000 U.S. troops will remain in Iraq, mainly as a training force.

"Operation Iraqi Freedom ends on your watch!" exclaimed Col. John Norris, the head of the brigade.

"Hooah!" the soldiers roared, using an Army battle cry

"They're leaving as heroes," Norris said of his soldiers. "I want them to walk home with pride in their hearts."

Well done. Heroes all.

Welcome home.

*(Well, except for those 6 brigades and 4500 spec ops troops still there that are staying to support the Iraqis. Apparently those aren't considered to be combat troops. Ok, then.)

We Don't Need Continuity, We Need Reciprocity

If you listened to Doc today, he was asking for continuity in the manner in which the liberal left is dealing with the Ground Zero mosque.

That is a fair request, but I doubt the left will ever grant it.

I, on the other hand, want reciprocity. I want the practitioners of Islam to grant the same freedoms and rights we as Americans are obligated, according to the Most High Annointed One (may peace be upon him), to grant them under our Constitution.

Problem is: practitioners of Islam do not recognize any document other than the Koran. Islam is not just a religion, it is a form of government. Predominately muslim countries have no constitution. They have Islam and the Koran and culture police. They have no religous freedom. Christians and Jews are routinely persecuted and possession of a Bible in a muslim country could result in a death sentence.

Islam, as practiced today, cannot exist under our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, simply because the Koran is antithetical to our system of government, and while we are more than willing to allow anyone to worship anything, a religion which places women in a less than human standing cannot be allowed. Any system which discriminates against non-believers cannot function in our society, because we have the God given right to believe anything we want. We have the God-given right of free will and self-determination. Islam and the Koran do not recognize those rights.

As a Christian, I am directed by the Bible to tell others about Jesus and the way to salvation and Heaven. I am not obligated to do it. If I choose to do so, I am also directed to not cast my pearls before swine, or preach to dogs. Those are metaphors for non-believers. I am not directed to force those non-believers into salvation, nor am I directed to kill them for being non-believers. Thats the beauty of free will. The Koran directs followers of Islam to convert those they can and kill the ones they can't.

A religion which directs its followers to kill is not a religion, its a cult. Just like Charles Manson or Jim Jones.

Crazy wackjobs.

Dialog and the 9-11 Mosque

In regards to the Park 51/9-11 mosque builders, Greg Gutfield wants to build Dialog.

Some people, even in New York, just don't get it. Because there are other non-Islamic businesses in the area that the Park 51 mosque builders want to put their victory community center, Daryl Lang tries to say that the area is NOT "hallowed" and therefore, its ok to build a mosque.

Of course, he missed the whole point of what makes the area unsuitable for a mosque. He attributes any opposition to bigotry. He is taking the words of the Imam at face value and has not bothered to find out about that imam's support of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc.
However, some of his commenters do get it:

“Dear author, New york dolls, otb, mcdonalds, express bbq, vitamin shop,obriens, burger, Broadway cafe health bar, dunkin doughnuts, jewelry, t-shirt /hat tourist traps sellers, atheist, christian, Buddhist, Hindu, or Jewish radicals did not kill 3,000 people-Muslim radicals did. FYI-I’m Atheist- If you actually did your research you’ll find that new york has been on a slow downward spiral since Sept 11 2001. I AM A RESIDENT of LOWER MANHATTAN too, my neighborhood has been completely altered, people who lived here for generations moved, businesses perished replaced with generic tourist shops and crappy restaurants.Look into the first amendment and what kind of rights go along with freedom of religion (speech and PETITION)- and the Law Of Abrogation which annuls any peaceful transcript in the koran replacing it with violent texts to appease their god. On United flight 93 you hear their WAR CRY. You are seriously misinformed.”

“I agree that there shouldn’t be an arbitrary 2 or 3 block limit away from ground zero for any new mosques in NYC. There should simply be a 1-ocean away limit, to be strictly enforced until that distant day in the future when Islam around the world becomes merely a friendly and peaceful religion, instead of the current murdering, slavetrading, woman-hating, black-hating, gay-hating, West-hating, Christian-hating, Jew-hating, unassimilating reactionary political theocracy which sees itself as conquering and dominating and ruling over every country and culture it encounters. You appear to be extremely bigoted against the very culture you are lucky to be living in, and your position on this matter is cowardly and indefensible. And suicidal, by the way.”

“You ignore the idea that the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ risks becoming a shrine to extremists, Muslim and non-Muslim alike. In the former case it would inspire the next band of terrorists, and it would stir the latter into attempting its destruction as an act of ‘revenge’. The Gentlemen’s Club is only at risk in the same way if Manhattan comes under Sharia Law.”

What they said.

The Lie Made Flesh

The Muslim Hijacking of Ground Zero
Daniel Greenfield
The great cities of the world are littered with relics of the Muslim occupation of their sacred places. Jerusalem, Delhi, Constantinople and Alexandria

...the armies of Islam did not just kill or enslave, they robbed their victims of their culture and history—and replaced it with Islam. Ground Zero is their target once more. A hijacking not of planes, but of memory. And their targets are no longer just 3,000 people—but us all.
The Great Lie told and retold over and over again for the last 9 years, is that Islam was not responsible for 9/11. That lie has been repeated over and over again. It has permeated our culture. It has filled our media. The politicians have echoed it. Books and articles are written that treat it as something every reasonable person understands. Islam had nothing to do with 9/11. Not a damn thing.

The Ground Zero mosque is that lie made flesh

It is that revisionist history given physical form, turned into brick and mortar, steel and cement, raised up to the sky, to look down mockingly on the Ground Zero construction site itself, and the people who come there to reflect and remember. It mocks their memories. It mocks the dead.

Its arrogance is the same as that of the Muslim burners of the Great Library of Alexandria, of Hanan Ashrawi claiming there was no Jewish connection to Joseph’s Tomb, or Anwar Al-Awlaki, who had advised the 9/11 hijackers, telling reporters after the attacks that Islam opposes terrorism. It is an act of beheading, not of flesh, but of identity. It takes a blade and saws at the neck of a culture, cutting off its head through lies and deceit.

When Muslims conquer, they begin with massacres and end with colonization. The building they bought, had its value destroyed by their own attack on September 11. Now having bought the building at a loss, they intend to demolish it and turn it into a monument to the very ideology responsible for that massacre. As they have done before in Constantinople and Jerusalem. As they have done throughout the world. First they bomb. Now they occupy. First they kill, then they solicit converts. First they invade, then they rule. It is an ugly and bloody pattern that has held true for over a 1000 years of history. And here it is again.

When the Sudanese Muslim Janjaweed militias go out and rape non-Arab women, this was what they said to their victims. “The government gave me permission to rape you. This is not your land anymore.” That is the Ground Zero mosque, with Bloomberg giving his permission to allow Islam to declare that this too is not our land anymore. It is the rape of a place that has equal stature in American memory to Gettysburg or Arlington. It is a calculated act of cultural brutality, disguised with a fake smile. Its message is that this is not our land anymore. That these are not our memories anymore. That these too have been hijacked by the murderers.

Islam does not just destroy bodies, it destroys souls. It plots to rob entire peoples of their culture, their history and their identity. In order to make them into Muslims or Dhimmis, slaves of Muslims. Mohammed began the process by taking the existing belief systems in the region, combining them into a distorted ideology that he called Islam, which gave him the power to do anything he wanted, that exploded into massacres, ethnic cleansing and a wave of brutality and conquest that covered the globe. But the armies of Islam did not just kill or enslave, they robbed their victims of their culture and history—and replaced it with Islam. Ground Zero is their target once more. A hijacking not of planes, but of memory. And their targets are no longer just 3,000 people—but us all.

While Lesser Mortals Quibble Over Politics, Mooslims Plot To Conquer

I've been the recipient of several emails bitching and moaning about Governor McDonnell and the budget surplus. He was called a liar, dishonest and dishonorable, and that was from someone who claims to be a conservative. All the while, we face an enemy hell bent on destroying America and our way of life. Well children, if you continue to bitch and moan about the politicians, and ignore the real danger, you're going to wake up one morning and politics and budgets and taxes are going to be the least of your worries.

Here's some advice: Redirect that vitriol towards a group who deserves it. Expend some energy fighting the real enemy.

VIDEO: Symbolizing Victory, Islamic Conquerors Erect Mosques Over Sacred Sites

Throughout history, Muslim conquerors have demonstrated their hatred and disdain for all other religions by purposefully erecting mosques over some of the most sacred and hallowed places of Judaic and Christian worship.

The al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem is built on top of one of the holiest sites in Judaism, the Temple Mount. The former St. Sophia’s Basilica, once the world’s largest cathedral and orthodox patriarchal basilica, was torn down and replaced with the principal mosque of Istanbul. The Cordoba mosque in Spain was a former Christian cathedral. Muslims have engaged in this practice for centuries, symbolizing their victories over the infidels.

Today, in New York City, Muslim leaders are plotting to build a mega-mosque near the site of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, where over three thousand Americans were callously murdered by Islamic jihadists. The site of the Twin Towers has become the most hallowed ground in United States history since Pearl Harbor.

The Center for Security Policy has released a video with a chilling reminder that history repeats itself. Click HERE to see video.

By now, unless the local builders refuse to work on it, everyone realizes that there's no stopping the propaganda action that is the Cordoba Mosque at Ground Zero.

So Greg Gutfield of RedEye Tonight is fighting back.

He's looking for investors. This is NOT A JOKE.

Roots of music - Saturday night Blues

Leadbelly sang songs of sorrow about the hard life of a woman.

Ram Jam brought it up a notch and turned Black Betty into a Rock queen.

Blues are the roots of modern American music. Funny how the times makes us want to return to our roots.

Kind of like the Tea Party......

One of these days I'll get it posted on the right night......
