“Green Jobs” Defined

Of the many TV commercials aired during yesterday’s Super Bowl broadcast, the “Green Police” ad for Audi sparked some tongue-in-cheek controversy:

Can it happen here? In some ways, it is already happening, albeit not to the extreme where hardcore environmentalists are pushing for “eco-crimes” to be fall under criminal prosecution.

What do you think?

ACORN: PWNED!

Since the other networks were busy falling prostrate before Barack Almighty, I watched Fox News Sunday instead. As you can see below, ACORN’s Bertha Lewis really didn’t want to talk about it:

Why watch the same old sales pitch on five different channels when you can watch something new and informative?

ACORN Corruption In San Diego

James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles strike California gold again with their fifth video investigation of the ACORN offices in National City, CA.

If you’re looking for trendy boutique hotels, an exploding culinary scene, or visiting the local ACORN to get your underage prostitutes smuggled across the Mexican border, you’re in the right place.

And find it they did:

In response to the videos, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has called for an investigation of ACORN’s activities statewide. Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has also directed his state government to halt all funding to ACORN.

On the federal level, the U.S. Senate voted 83-7 to cut off funding of the ACORN housing program. Seven senators have a lot of explaining to do.

O’Keefe and Giles are to be commended for doing the hard work that the mainstream media refuses to do.

California ACORN Chapter Exposed, Part II

There’s more video of ACORN corruption caught on tape from San Bernardino:

And for “just playing along”, Tresa Kalke must be one hell of a method actress:

Meanwhile (with the exception of Fox News Channel), the mainstream media outlets are busy seeing, speaking, and hearing no evil from ACORN.

ACORN is making futile attempts to cover their tracks and threatening to shoot the messengers via lawsuit threats.

There’s now video of an undercover visit to an ACORN office in San Diego being aired on FNC. We ain’t seen nothing yet, folks!

We HAVE Forgotten

Today should have not been declared a “national day of service”, but of remembrance.

Ralph Peters’ op-ed in the New York Post hit the nail right on the head:

Eight years ago today, our homeland was attacked by fanatical Muslims inspired by Saudi Arabian bigotry. Three thousand American citizens and residents died.

We resolved that we, the People, would never forget. Then we forgot.

We’ve learned nothing.

Instead of cracking down on Islamist extremism, we’ve excused it.

Instead of killing terrorists, we free them.

Instead of relentlessly hunting Islamist madmen, we seek to appease them.

Instead of acknowledging that radical Islam is the problem, we elected a president who blames America, whose idea of freedom is the right for women to suffer in silence behind a veil — and who counts among his mentors and friends those who damn our country or believe that our own government staged the tragedy of September 11, 2001.

Instead of insisting that freedom will not be infringed by terrorist threats, we censor works that might offend mass murderers. Radical Muslims around the world can indulge in viral lies about us, but we dare not even publish cartoons mocking them.

Instead of protecting law-abiding Americans, we reject profiling to avoid offending terrorists. So we confiscate granny’s shampoo at the airport because the half-empty container could hold 3.5 ounces of liquid.

Instead of insisting that Islamist hatred and religious apartheid have no place in our country, we permit the Saudis to continue funding mosques and madrassahs where hating Jews and Christians is preached as essential to Islam.

Instead of confronting Saudi hate-mongers, our president bows down to the Saudi king.

Instead of recognizing the Saudi-sponsored Wahhabi cult as the core of the problem, our president blames Israel.

Instead of asking why Middle Eastern civilization has failed so abjectly, our president suggests that we’re the failures.

Instead of taking every effective measure to cull information from terrorists, the current administration threatens CIA agents with prosecution for keeping us safe.

Instead of proudly and promptly rebuilding on the site of the Twin Towers, we’ve committed ourselves to the hopeless, useless task of rebuilding Afghanistan. (Perhaps we should have built a mosque at Ground Zero — the Saudis would’ve funded it.)

Instead of taking a firm stand against Islamist fanaticism, we’ve made a cult of negotiations — as our enemies pursue nuclear weapons; sponsor terrorism; torture, imprison, rape and murder their own citizens — and laugh at us.

Instead of insisting that Islam must become a religion of responsibility, our leaders in both parties continue to bleat that “Islam’s a religion of peace,” ignoring the curious absence of Baptist suicide bombers.

Instead of requiring new immigrants to integrate into our society and conform to its public values, we encourage and subsidize anti-American, woman-hating, freedom-denying bigotry in the name of toleration.

Instead of pursuing our enemies to the ends of the earth, we help them sue us.

We’ve dishonored our dead and whitewashed our enemies. A distinctly unholy alliance between fanatical Islamists abroad and a politically correct “elite” in the US has reduced 9/11 to the status of a non-event, a day for politicians to preen about how little they’ve done.

We’ve forgotten the shock and the patriotic fury Americans felt on that bright September morning eight years ago. We’ve forgotten our identification with fellow citizens leaping from doomed skyscrapers. We’ve forgotten the courage of airline passengers who would not surrender to terror.

We’ve forgotten the men and women who burned to death or suffocated in the Pentagon. We’ve forgotten our promises, our vows, our commitments.

We’ve forgotten what we owe our dead and what we owe our children. We’ve even forgotten who attacked us.

We have betrayed the memory of our dead. In doing so, we betrayed ourselves and our country. Our troops continue to fight — when they’re allowed to do so — but our politicians have surrendered.

Are we willing to let the terrorists win?

God forbid, IF and WHEN we are attacked again, they will win.

The words of George Santayana ring true in these present times: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Let us resolve this moment forward to NEVER AGAIN betray those who were brutally killed eight years ago, REMEMBER the attacks of September 11, 2001, and REMAIN VIGILANT against those who threaten our country, our liberty, and our way of life.

If you still feel compelled to serve, then do so in reminding our elected public servants that they work for us — and hold them accountable for letting their guard down in this war.

Yes, we are still at war.

Speaking Truth to Power

Last night, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) shouted out loud our thoughts and feelings toward the vicious demagoguery that has come from the Obama Administration:

Regrettably, Rep. Wilson caved in to criticism from the left (with a little help from RINO Sen. John McCain and House Republican leaders) and apologized. Quite frankly, he told the truth, and he had absolutely nothing to apologize for.

Will the president apologize for his derision and insults toward the American people who rose up and spoke out against a forced government takeover disguised as “health insurance reform”? Don’t count on it. Being Barack Hussein Obama means never having to say you’re sorry.

In the meantime, I’m disgusted with the weakness displayed by the GOP, and I believe that a voter registration switch back to Non-Partisan is in order.

But the president’s health care “speech” is small potatoes compared to the rest of the vicious attacks on liberty that surround us. Remain vigilant. Watch, fight, and pray.

Van Jones Out

President Obama’s embattled “green jobs czar” packs it in:

Van Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly “green jobs” with the White House Council on Environmental Quality was linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.

The resignation comes as Obama is working to regain his footing in the contentious health care debate.

Jones issued an apology on Thursday for his past statements. When asked the next day whether Obama still had confidence in him, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said only that Jones “continues to work in the administration.”

The matter surfaced after news reports of a derogatory comment Jones made in the past about Republicans, and separately, of Jones’ name appearing on a petition connected to the events surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. That 2004 petition had asked for congressional hearings and other investigations into whether high-level government officers had allowed the attacks to occur.

“On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me,” Jones said in his resignation statement. “They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.”

Jones wasn’t thrown under the bus, but taken away in a waahmbulance! The truth about his radical, communist, conspiracy theory ties was an open book, pointed out in print and online; but to him, it was a “smear campaign”. He was busted fair and square, thanks to talk radio personality Glenn Beck, who had the courage to stand up and question Jones’ agenda (and ask why in the world would Obama gave him an advisory post in the first place) with boldness.

Jones’ resignation is a victory for liberty; however, there are still 31 “czars” remaining on the government payroll — all with radical backgrounds — who can do irreparable harm to our nation, our lives and our freedoms. It remains wise to heed Beck’s advice, continue to stand up against tyranny, and question those in leadership who ultimately work for us, regardless of race, ideology, or political affiliation.

In short, fellow citizens, continue to watch, fight, and pray.

That 9th Commandment Thing

In an attempt to compare his battle for socialized medicine with the historic civil rights movement, President Obama accused his critics of “bearing false witness” about his true intentions as he gave his sales pitch to religious leaders.

Given that Obama has repeatedly lied about his agenda to force socialized medicine down the throats of the American people time, time, and time again, he is not without sin in such regard, and should refrain from casting stones at his critics.

Secondly, Obama is actually preaching to the choir, given that the “coalition of religious groups” is actually a left-wing network of “faith-based” community organizers whose founders were trained in the teachings of Marxist pharisee Saul Alinsky as opposed to taking up the cause of the converted Christian apostle formerly known as Saul of Tarsus.

In promoting the big lie that is currently repackaged as “health insurance reform”, Obama is a false prophet. The “unwashed”, “uninformed” multitudes are rejecting the message and responding with a resounding “NO!” like fire shut up in Jeremiah’s bones (no relation to the latter-day Jeremiah Wright, whose hate-filled sermons left quite an impression on the president).

The fish and loaves that are being fed to those who hunger for total government control over their lives are quite fishy indeed.

Standing With Kenneth Gladney

As many of you know, St. Louis resident Kenneth Gladney was recently assaulted by union thugs (one of them an ordained minister, no less) outside a town hall forum on the proposed health care power-grab.

Today, members of MoveOnUp, an online forum of black conservatives, will be rallying holding a press conference outside the St. Louis NAACP headquarters, demanding that the organization take off their partisan blinders and speak out against acts of violence that are currently being condoned by labor unions and politicians in order to ramrod their socialist agendas. Although I’m unable to attend, I propose a challange to all who believe in individual liberty, regardless what one’s political leanings might be.

Kenneth Gladney was beaten by a goon masquerading as a preacher of the gospel for merely selling Gadsden flags (the historical battle standard from the Revolutionary War best know for the words “Don’t tread on me”). As a fitting tribute of support to a man who believes in liberty and was wrongly attacked for his free expression thereof, I call on others to purchase and display the Gadsden flag with pride and solidarity. Whether it be a full-sized banner, a bumper sticker, a lapel pin, or a yard sign, display it with resolute boldness. Send a message to the Service Employees International Union and other hostile statist factions that we, as Americans, will not be intimidated by thug activity, and that we will stand up and defend our Constitutional rights as citizens of a free republic.

If you’re in the St. Louis area, do whatever you can to buy your Gadsden flag gear from Kenneth Gladney himself — and support the spirit of free enterprise.

Tell the thugs not to tread on us.
