Some examples of the new jobs created by Barack Hussein Obama.

The 2012 presidential campaign has started off with bang and our Dear Leader is flooding the airwaves with boasts about all the new jobs he has created. Well, besides the campaign workers he's hired I can't deny that he hasn't created a few new jobs but I wouldn't go around bragging about some of them if I were in his shoes. You all heard about the controversial provision Obama wanted inserted in the National Defense Authorization Act FY2012, the part about suspending the Constitutional Rights of American Citizens and giving the U.S. Army the authority to snatch off the streets anyone they want and hold them indefinitely. Well, some people began to doubt that such a Police State atmosphere could ever exist in the United States of America. Sorry to have to bust your bubble but the U.S. Army has already listed on their web site www.goarmy.com some new job openings for what they call Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists. Read it below.
The following  Careers & Jobs is the complete text taken from the U.S. Army web site GoArmy.com. http://www.goarmy.com/careers-and-jobs/browse-career-and-job-categories/legal-and-law-enforcement/internment-resettlement-specialist.html
Read it carefully and then consider the controversial sections 1031 and 1032 of the National Defense Authorization Act FY2012 (Senate Bill 1867 http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-s1867/text) just passed in the Senate that grants authority to the government to detain indefinitely without trial any American it considers to be a threat.
Subtitle D--Detainee Matters
      Sec. 1031. Affirmation of authority of the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force.
      Sec. 1032. Requirement for military custody.
Also consider that Homeland Security has previously defined the sources of these threats to be American citizens who support 2nd Amendment Rights, Pro-Life and returning combat veterans. As I wrote in my blog on December 2, 2011:
Following the Islamic motivated attacks on America on 9-11-2001 Congress hastily passed The Patriot Act. Then they created the Department of Homeland Security. Then Homeland Security issued two revealing documents that identified the targets of their concerns about domestic terrorists. (U//FOUO) Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment and (U//FOUO) Domestic Extremism Lexicon. Then, in 2009, Democrat leftist Rep. Alcee L. Hastings from Florida introduced H.R. 645, which was described by the very knowledgeable columnist Jerome R. Corsi, in a WorldNet Daily News story:  Bill creates detention camps in U.S. for 'emergencies' Sweeping, undefined purpose raises worries about military police state posted on February 01, 2009, as "calling for the secretary of homeland security to establish no fewer than six national emergency centers for corralling civilians on military installations." "The proposed bill, which has received little mainstream media attention, appears designed to create the type of detention center that those concerned about use of the military in domestic affairs fear could be used as concentration camps for political dissidents, such as occurred in Nazi Germany."

Waiting a few years till the ripples of discontent had subsided and citizens memories faded we then have in the last few days another bill, S.1867 which has just passed in the Senate. The National Defense Authorization Act bill contains the following section. SEC. 1031. AFFIRMATION OF AUTHORITY OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES TO DETAIN COVERED PERSONS PURSUANT TO THE AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE. None other than the ACLU has described this as: "The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday. The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing."

Let me simplify these qualifications because they probably won't be read by anyone who is too highly educated. The job opening should say: "If you like the idea of walking around with a gun and you like to push people around, beat them up and act like a goon, then your government needs you. If taking an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States doesn't mean much to you then you are the kind of person we're looking for." Just remember one thing. Americans like being free and probably won't take to kindly to seeing you in their neighborhood. Oh, and one more thing, go back and read some stuff about the first American Revolution, its called American History. You might get an idea about how far we'll go for our freedom.

More on the involvement of Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation from Bare Naked Islam.

This informative post on Bare Naked Islam came just hours after I posted my commentary on Human Rights and Blasphemy in the Islamic world which immediately follows this. Reprinted with permission.

Obama Regime hands huge propaganda victory to radical Islamists seeking to criminalize speech deemed ‘offensive’ to Muslims

by barenakedislam

At a State Department three-day, closed-door meeting in December 2011 with representatives of the Saudi Arabia-based Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on measures to fight religious "intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton protrayed the conference as a sign that Washington and the OIC are working together to protect religious freedom around the world.

 IPT (H/T TJV)  "We have to get past the idea that we can suppress religious minorities, that we can restrict speech, that we are smart enough that we can substitute our judgment for God's and determine who is or is not blaspheming," Clinton said. "I think if we do our work right, in years to come, people will look back and say this was a great step forward on behalf of both (sic) freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and our common humanity."
But according to the Hudson institute's Nina Shea (who attended portions of the conference as an observer), the event was actually a step backward for religious liberty. The meeting seemed to be an exercise in "moral equivalency and pandering to Sunni tyrants in the Middle East," she said.
"The general theme seemed to be that the U.S. has problems just like Saudi Arabia with religious tolerance," she added. "There was a total absence of perspective on all counts."
Pointing to familiar events such the Muhammad cartoon violence, Quran burnings and Muslim objections to the film "Fitna," OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu argued that his organization regarded bigotry as a primarily Western phenomenon. He wrote that "no one has the right to insult another person for their beliefs or to incite hatred and prejudice," and that "freedom of expression has to be exercised with responsibility."
 
Zamir Akram, Pakistan's permanent representative of the OIC before the U.N. Human Rights Council was more emphatic. He claimed that Resolution 16/18, which expressed concern about "negative profiling" and religious "stereotyping," was driven by Western discrimination against Muslims. Akram also questioned whether Muslims engaged in discrimination, and said Muslims would not compromise on permitting "anything against the Quran, anything against the Prophet."
Given these comments – and Saudi educational materials that encourage the spread of Islam through jihad and demonize Jews, Christians and polytheists – Shea believes U.S. officials are "na├»ve" to think there will be reciprocity from the OIC when it comes to combating discrimination.
Despite Saudi Arabia's abysmal record of persecuting non-Muslims, the Kingdom received a note of dubious praise from the United Nations General Assembly, which on Monday passed a resolution condemning religious intolerance. According to Shea, the UNGA resolution – passed by consensus with U.S. support – singled out for praise a single program: A Saudi-built "religious dialogue" center in Vienna, Austria.
Given Saudi Arabia's relentless persecution of non-Muslims, the praise is "Orwellian," Shea told the IPT. "They don't dare establish such a program on their own territory."
OIC member states spearheading the anti-blasphemy campaign include Egypt, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia – all of which jail or execute "blasphemers." In nations like Egypt and Iraq, Christians are attacked and their churches torched while Muslim-dominated governments are unwilling or unable to protect them.
"In these countries, you have 'cleansing' tolerated by the authorities," Shea noted. "Religious cleansing [of Christians] is underway right now in Egypt and Iraq. It's been completed in Saudi Arabia. Jews have been cleansed from the Sunni Muslim world."
By any measure, Muslims and other religious minorities in the United States face no dangers comparable to religious minorities in the Muslim Arab world. Indeed, like the Bush administration preceding it, the Obama administration has gone to extraordinary lengths to court American Muslims and portray their situation in a very favorable light.
Shea emphasizes that the behavior of OIC participants like Saudi Arabia gives no indication that they are interested in dialogue with minorities in their countries. She said that at the conference, participants largely ignored the vast differences between the United States and OIC member nations in protecting religious minorities.
One legal official (State Department confidentiality rules barred observers from identifying him or his country) gave a "one-sided depiction of American bigotry against religious minorities, including Muslims" in his opening keynote address, Shea said, telling representatives of some of the world's most repressive regimes that America can learn from them about protecting religious tolerance.
Pointing to mounting reports of atrocities and intimidation against Middle East Christians and mass slaughter by the Islamist regime in Khartoum, Shea didn't mince words in characterizing the attitudes of the American conference participants toward their OIC counterparts.
"It's the equivalent of saying to Hitler: 'Well, you have a real problem with the way you treat minorities and we have a problem with limiting the rights of Aryans here.'"

Washington Retreats on Speech Codes

The OIC (previously called the Organization of the Islamic Conference) has pushed for a universal blasphemy law for more than a decade. Since the November 2004murder of filmmaker Theo Van Gogh in the Netherlands and the 2006 riots protesting cartoon depictions of the prophet Mohammad, the group has pressured Western European nations to implement speech codes punishing criticism of Islam.
In March, the Obama administration thwarted the OIC's attempt to win United Nations Human Rights Council passage of a resolution calling for criminal penalties for the "defamation of religions." The following month, Washington engineered Council passage of Resolution 16/18, a nonbinding measure which did not censor speech.
The victory didn't last long. In July, Secretary of State Clinton revived the issue when she co-chaired an OIC session in Istanbul dealing with "religious intolerance." Clinton called on countries to "counter offensive expression through education, interfaith dialogue and public debate," while emphasizing that speech restrictions were unacceptable. She invited conference attendees to a follow-up meeting to continue the dialogue.
OIC officials seized on Clinton's offer by stepping up their campaign for blasphemy laws and speech codes. Based on conversations with U.S. officials, Shea believes that many of them fail to grasp what the OIC represents. They lack essential information about apostasy and blasphemy laws and have "very little knowledge of the illiberal nature of the OIC," she said. "There's a sense of political correctness that prohibits probing of that organization and what it stands for."
Although the United States is unlikely to emulate Western European countries in enacting speech codes, "what we see is self-censorship" by agencies like the State and Homeland Security departments which are barred from discussing issues such as Salafism and jihad. Moreover, "in the media, academia and the entertainment world, we see self-censorship on behalf of Islam. Certain issues are off the table."
Shea believes that this "politically correct" approach to Islamism has disturbing implications for U.S. national security. In the case of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who massacred 13 of his fellow servicemen at Fort Hood in 2009, co-workers emphasized that they were deeply troubled by his jihadist ravings regarded him as a radical Muslim "but didn't report it for fear of being labeled "Islamophobes,'" she noted.

The difference between US and them. Freedom of Speech in America carries a death sentence in Islam.

Some thoughts on what makes America so special. While the Democrats in Washington are rapidly trying to dismantle our U.S. Constitution and our Bill of Rights, people in the Middle Eastern Islamic countries are dying in an effort to openly discuss the oppressive military/political/religious culture of Islam. And if there was ever any doubt that that oppressive culture was isolated to one particular geographic area, let me call your attention to an article published in the National Review Online, "Islam is Islam, And That's It" , subtitled, "The Arab Spring was not hijacked, written by Andrew C. McCarthy. To briefly quote from this lengthy, informative piece, here are the first four paragraphs. Please click the link and read the rest.
‘Islam Is Islam, And That’s It’
The Arab Spring was not hijacked

BY ANDREW C. McCARTHY
The tumult indelibly dubbed “the Arab Spring” in the West, by the credulous and the calculating alike, is easier to understand once you grasp two basics. First, the most important fact in the Arab world — as well as in Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and other neighboring non-Arab territories — is Islam. It is not poverty, illiteracy, or the lack of modern democratic institutions. These, like anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism, and an insular propensity to buy into conspiracy theories featuring infidel villains, are effects of Islam’s regional hegemony and supremacist tendency, not causes of it. One need not be led to that which pervades the air one breathes.

The second fact is that Islam constitutes a distinct civilization. It is not merely an exotic splash on the gorgeous global mosaic with a few embarrassing cultural eccentricities; it is an entirely different way of looking at the world. We struggle with this truth, which defies our end-of-history smugness. Enthralled by diversity for its own sake, we have lost the capacity to comprehend a civilization whose idea of diversity is coercing diverse peoples into obedience to its evolution-resistant norms.

So we set about remaking Islam in our own progressive image: the noble, fundamentally tolerant Religion of Peace. We miniaturize the elements of the ummah (the notional global Muslim community) that refuse to go along with the program: They are assigned labels that scream “fringe!” — Islamist, fundamentalist, Salafist, Wahhabist, radical, jihadist, extremist, militant, or, of course, “conservative” Muslims adhering to “political Islam.”

We consequently pretend that Muslims who accurately invoke Islamic scripture in the course of forcibly imposing the dictates of classical sharia — the Islamic legal and political system — are engaged in “anti-Islamic activity,” as Britain’s former home secretary Jacqui Smith memorably put it. When the ongoing Islamization campaign is advanced by violence, as inevitably happens, we absurdly insist that this aggression cannot have been ideologically driven, that surely some American policy or Israeli act of self-defense is to blame, as if these could possibly provide rationales for the murderous jihad waged by Boko Haram Muslims against Nigerian Christians and by Egyptian Muslims against the Copts, the persecution of the Ahmadi sect by Indonesian and Pakistani Muslims, or the internecine killing in Iraq of Sunnis by Shiites and vice versa — a tradition nearly as old as Islam itself — which has been predictably renewed upon the recent departure of American troops.
So how does this open discussion about Islam play out in the heart of darkness? First, a story from Iran c/o APA News. From the APA, Azerbaijan press agency. The Azerbaijan Press Agency (APA) is one of the chief news agencies in Azerbaijan. The agency is an independent private limited liability company founded in 2004.
8 people imprisoned in Iran for holding discussion on Islam in internet

Blasphemy & Yuman Rites Under Islam

by sheikyermami on January 29, 2012

Islam is not to be doubted:

Iran imprisons 8 for discussing Islam on the Internet
Iranian bloggers to be executed for ‘spreading corruption’ as Tehran cracks down in run up to elections
  • Four journalists also arrested in moves to curb freedom of expression
  • U.S. State Department urges Iran to ‘protect rights of all citizens’
  • Israel says ‘world must act quickly’ as UN urges West to resume talks
  • Iran’s parliament will decide on Sunday whether to stop oil exports to EU
 No need for more talks. The time for action is NOW!


Yuman Rites Champion Turkey  
Turkey topped the list of countries that violated the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) with 159 cases. Russia followed Turkey with 121 cases and Ukraine with 105.
Well, if that doesn’t get them a place of honor in the EUSSR I don’t know what will…..

Will Egypt’s Revolution Pass the Mickey Mouse Test? (Kansas.com)

Egypt’s new Islamist leaders are putting a businessman [is] on trial for “insulting religion”. Oddly enough, religion doesn’t seem to be suffering.
Blasphemy in Tunisia
Tunisian TV executive to stand trial for “blasphemy” over animated movie
Nabil Karoui, owner of the Tunisian Nassma TV station is set to stand trial for “violating sacred values” and “disturbing the public order.” Karoui has told reporters, “I will plead not guilty, of course. It is outrageous that it was I who appear, as people who burned my house were released. (via Vlad)
Just remember: this is exactly what awaits us if we let   The World’s First Muslim Human Rights Commission foist their counterfeit  Islamic yuman rites package on us.
“The OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu summarized the task of the Commission to removing the misperceptions regarding the interface between Islam and Human Rights.”
And don't forget, our very own staunch supporter of the Bill of Rights in America, our Democrat secretary of state Hillary Clinton, has openly expressed interest in the OIC, and in the United Nations efforts to make criticizing Islam a crime. There does seem to be contradiction in how the leftist Democrats in Washington define the term "blasphemy" because they never raise any objections when Christians and Jews are mocked, insulted, attacked or threatened. They only complain when someone says a nasty thing about Muslims. 
When an "artist" in this country creates an exhibit showing the crucified Jesus immersed in a jar of urine and titles it "Piss Christ" or makes a video with another crucifix crawling with ants they find no trouble getting sponsored by the taxpayer funded leftist leaning National Endowment for the Arts. Its all in the name of artistic expression and protected by the 1st Amendment. But publish a cartoon depicting Mohammad wearing a bomb in his turban and there is hell to pay for the hate speech and no one is protected by any rights according to Democrats. And lets not forget that in Islam, the mere act of converting to another religion is the ultimate blasphemy and according to the Koran is punishable by death.
What was that old expression we used to say?  "What's good for the goose is good for the gander." No, that's not it, I think the more appropriate response is "You got it coming because you asked for it."

Protecting Muslims from Americans - or - Protecting Americans from Muslims?

Two stories in the past two days that bear a significant reading on how truthful news is being distorted to protect those who hate America. First, on the web site Bare Naked Islam, comes a story fairly close to home. BNI reports that in my neighboring state of Ohio, on the campus of Ohio State University, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, placed a full page ad in the OSU campus newspaper, The Lantern, that identified the former leaders of the Muslim Student Association on various college campuses in America and asked Where Are They Now?. Was it because the names listed happened to be those MSA leaders who turned out to be convicted Islamic terrorists that Muslim students became so enraged at the truth being revealed? Read for yourself and decide.
OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY: MUSLIM outrage over advertisement linking Muslim Student Association members with terrorism

Outraged Muslim students at the Ohio State University have mobilized after The Lantern, the campus’s official student-run newspaper, published what they say is a discriminatory advertisement linking the Muslim Student Association to international terrorism. 

DH Freedom Center  Titled “Former leaders of the Muslim Student Association (MSA)”, the advertisement asks “Where are they now?” and lists nine MSA co-founders and former Presidents as having ties to alleged terrorist groups. One such listing describes Jamal Barzini as both a co-founder of the MSA and a close associate of Hamas.
The advertisement was paid for by FrontPage Magazine, an online publication funded by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a national institution recognized for its harsh and derogator bold and accurate stance against Islam.
The advertisement, printed on page 2 of the newspaper, drew immediate criticism for its direct assault on Muslim representation on American college campuses. According to Jana Al-Akhras, a 2nd year student and member of the university’s MSA, “it’s a blatant attempt at reinforcing stereotypes and causing widespread fear of Muslims on campus.” (They SHOULD be afraid of Muslims)
Students across campus have already begun to protest the advertisement. “We are writing a letter to the editor,” said Nadia Ismail, a 1st year undergraduate at OSU, and “will be in touch with groups on and off campus” to stand against what Al-Akhras calls a blanket statement labeling Muslim students as security threats. OSU’s MSA is currently planning a course of action. (Can’t take the truth, can you?)
Although The Lantern was not responsible for putting the advertisement together, Al-Akhras says she holds the newspaper accountable. “It wasn’t an op-ed. It was a paid advertisement and they [The Lantern] had all the right to refuse it.”
Asked whether this form of advertisement should be expected, Ismail said that “it has become acceptable to discriminate against Muslims. I don’t think any attack this forthcoming would have been published about any other religion.” (No other religion is synonymous with terrorism)

Click the image for a larger view:
There is much to discuss about freedom of speech on college campuses but “there’s a fine line between freedom of speech and hate speech,” Al-Akhras said in an interview. To imply that the MSA, assuming the advertisement’s allegations are true, is responsible for international terrorism only “breeds hatred.” (Yes, the truth about Islam creates hatred for Islam)
Both Al-Akhras and Ismail hope this experience will show that discrimination on and off campus will not be tolerated.
More on the MSA: Muslim Student Association

Then another story, this time from Jihad watch, that reports about a story in the New York Times (that bastion of leftist apologists) where more Muslims have become outraged that the New York City Police Dept. has been showing a movie called The Third Jihad as part of its counter-terrorism training program to police officers. In the film, there is a scene of a group of Muslims protesting in NYC and one of them is holding a sign showing the black flag of Islam flying over the White House. The NY Times suggests the photo was fake but, in fact, it was not as Jihad Watch posted the original article, Jihad at Ground Zero on February 7, 2006 that showed it.
This whole controversy is epitomized by the photo illustration and lead paragraph of the first New York Times story on this issue: "In Police Training, a Dark Film on U.S. Muslims," by Michael Powell, January 23. The photo shows the black flag of jihad flying above the White House, with the caption, "An Islamic flag atop the White House in 'The Third Jihad.'”
Then the lead paragraph says: "Ominous music plays as images appear on the screen: Muslim terrorists shoot Christians in the head, car bombs explode, executed children lie covered by sheets and a doctored photograph shows an Islamic flag flying over the White House."
Both the Times' use of the image and its reference to it at the beginning of the story suggest that the producers of The Third Jihad doctored the photo themselves in order to push their cockamamie idea that some Muslims want to "infiltrate and dominate America." But in reality, Muslims originated this image, as we have reported here several times. Here is a photo of Muslims holding up this photo at a rally in New York in February 2006:
Click here to read the rest of this article with the numerous quotes made by Islamic leaders in the past.
Islam is the same wherever you go and the proponents all seem to be acting from the same script. In Columbus, Ohio, in New York City or in Pakistan or Iran, or Egypt, or Lebanon, or Syria or any Muslim country: Make it a crime to tell the truth about the violence of this political system, don't remind anyone of the past criminal acts committed by the leaders or the hate speeches they have made. Don't quote the passages from the Koran, no matter how much they spew hatred against Christians and Jews (and 60% of the Koran is about that) because it causes Muslims to become embarrassed. Yes, they become embarrassed when they must try to explain how their Religion of Peace commands so much hatred towards non-Muslims. And how do we handle the truth about Islam when we discover that three independent investigations have found that 80% of the mosques in America have anti-American hate literature on display. How do we feel when the Pew Research Institute surveys Muslims and finds 26% in America approve of killing in the name of their religion. Do we just sweep it under the rug or make believe it doesn't exist or do we do what the Democrats do, like Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who joins the United Nations commission to discuss making it a crime to say bad things about Islam? I think its time we followed Gen. George Washington's orders and "Place none but Americans on guard tonight".  2012 is a good time to start.

Obama finds more ways to increase his popularity among poor people and buy their votes.

Everyone know that people on Welfare depend on government handouts and are most reluctant to get off the dole and work for a living like everyone else. After all, what is their incentive? What with free housing and free medical treatment, free food stamps and more money for more kids - Welfare families have become a huge voting block that perpetuate Democrats in government. There is only one other demographic group that Democrats depend on for a gratuitous vote and that is the tens of millions of illegal immigrants that Obama and the Democrats want to grant amnesty to. But the generosity of big government seemingly has no boundaries when it comes to buying votes. Take, for instance, the new program to provide free cell phones to poor people.
This came to my attention today in an email that was written to poke fun at a very unfunny story about the Obama phone. The reason it is not funny is because it is true. First the story then a screen shot of the web page to prove it.
The Obama Phone -
 
Just when you think you've heard it all, our illustrious Congress quietly comes up with a new zinger to put their hands in your pockets, and pick them while you aren't watching. Isn't this just wonderful ?

I was standing in line at the checkout counter at Wal Mart and as I looked at the line behind me, I saw a couple of people talking about what looked like identical new cell phones, bragging about the fact that their phones were free and so was the airtime.   The woman in line behind me had heard the same exchange and turned to the young man behind her and asked, 'Is that a new type of cell phone?' The young man replied, 'Yes, this is my new Obama phone. She asked him what an Obama phone was, and he went on to say that, 'Welfare recipients are now eligible to receive what he described as (1) a FREE new cell phone, and (2) approximately 250 FREE minutes of air time every month.' 
  Needless to say, I was a little skeptical about his answer, so when I got back home, I Googled it, and lo and behold, he was telling the truth. This was what I discovered: 
  SafeLink Wireless is a government supported program that provides a free cell phone and airtime each month for income-eligible customers. In other words, your tax dollars are being distributed to a wireless phone provider to provide welfare recipients with free cell phones and airtime. I don't know about you, but as for me, enough is enough. We are $14 Trillion in debt, Congress is balking at continuing unemployment payments to those who want to work, and Congress is increasing the dole-out to dead beats. 
  The ship of State is sinking, and it's sinking fast. The old concept of getting ahead through hard work has flown out the window. It has been replaced by Obama's and Congress' idea of Hope and Change. The country has changed all right, changed to "Why should I work for it, when I can get it for free?" 
  You can click on the link below to confirm for yourself that the Obama Phone is real. 
  Just have a barf bag ready. Click the link or click the image for a larger view.
 
Now don't you feel better knowing that the less fortunate can enjoy some of the indispensable pleasures you work so hard to pay for? And on the same subject of government handouts, keep in mind that almost all of them have a way of enriching the pocketbooks of the Democrat faithful who, in turn,  make those huge political contributions (make that kickbacks). BTW, have you heard about the other Obama scandal involving the solar power company, Solyndra, it also has the same plot. Risky and questionable huge government loans, company officials make contributions to Democrats, company files for bankruptcy. Taxpayers foot the bill.
In New York City they have a welfare industry called temporary housing that consists of several hotels that the city Welfare Agency contracts with for emergency housing. These figures may be undervalued because the story is a few years old. These hotel owners rake in an average of 10-million dollars a year per building and the temporary accommodations are usually more permanent than temporary. And the owners of the hotels are very big contributors to local Democrat politicians. To make matters worse, some years ago a big NYC newspaper revealed that the amount of money the city paid for to accommodate those welfare families could have purchased each of them a house equal to $250,000 in value.
And on the subject of poking fun at Democrat supported Welfare Programs, in the emails I receive, here is a little gem that was contained in a letter-to-the editor of a newspaper in Waco, Texas. These are my sentiments, completely, and I couldn't have said it any better.
This was in the Tribune Herald, Waco, TX,  Nov 18, 2011

PUT ME IN CHARGE . . .

Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal legations. Then, we'll test
recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing.  Ever live in a military barracks?

You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried.  If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job.  It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you.  We
will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the "common good.."

Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all  of the above is voluntary.  If you want our money, accept our rules.  Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices.  The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Gov't subsistence, you no longer can VOTE!  Yes, that is correct.  For you to vote would be a conflict of interest.  You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov't. welfare check.  If you want to vote, then get a job.

Vatican condemns Islamic persecution of Christians while Barack Hussein Obama says we must respect them, saying: "We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith".

Thanks to Jihad Watch for the lead. This story comes from Catholic World News on the web site CatholicCulture.org and we need to be reminded every day that our own Great Leader, the one-time Muslim turned community organizer, Barack Hussein Obama, has told us that we must respect Islam. Why, yes, respect Islam, because his Islamic faith has sent more martyrs to Heaven than anyone else in history.
Vatican spokesman laments religious persecution, cites ‘Islamic extremism’
January 16, 2012 
The director of the Holy See Press Office has used his weekly message to draw attention to the plight of persecuted Christians.
“The recent annual report of the international evangelical non-governmental organization Open Doors on the persecution of Christians in the world contains a world index of persecution according to which the first ten places are occupied by the following countries in descending order: North Korea, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Iran, Maldives, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Iraq and Pakistan,” notes Father Federico Lombardi.
“Among the most serious concerns, the increase in Islamic extremism merits special attention,” he continued. “Persons and organizations dedicated to extremist Islamic ideology perpetrate terrible acts of violence in many places throughout the world: the Boko Haram sect in Nigeria is but one example. Then there is the climate of insecurity that unfortunately in some countries accompanies the so-called “Arab spring”--a climate that drives many Christians to flee and even to emigrate.”
“Such sufferings are a part of the Christian journey,” Father Lombardi concluded. “Nor ought we be amazed. Jesus said so in the Sermon on the Mount: ‘Blessed are they that are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,’ is the last of the Beatitudes; its promise is reward in heaven.”
To briefly quote from a Wall Street Journal column on April 9, 2009, entitled Will Islam Return Obama's 'Respect'? written by Daniel Henninger, deputy editor of The Wall Street Journal's editorial page:
The subject of this column is the status of minority faith groups, mostly Christian, living inside Islamic countries. That status is poor. In some cases it verges on extinction, after centuries of coexistence with Islam. So it is useful to review what Mr. Obama said of his goals for living with Islam:

"I know that the trust that binds the United States and Turkey has been strained, and I know that strain is shared in many places where the Muslim faith is practiced. So let me say this as clearly as I can: The United States is not, and will never be, at war with Islam. . . .

"We seek broader engagement based on mutual interest and mutual respect. We will listen carefully, we will bridge misunderstandings, and we will seek common ground. We will be respectful, even when we do not agree. We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith. . . . Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country. I know, because I am one of them."

Afghan children told by Mullahs their suicide vests wont hurt them.

The British newspaper, The Telegraph, has a story today about children in Afghanistan that are being brainwashed by Islamic clerics into wearing suicide vest bombs. The Islamic Mullahs have convinced them through intense anti-American indoctrination that when they detonate their bombs that Allah will protect them from harm while they kill the Westerners. One thing about Islam is the consistency in its teachings. And, as the intrepid anti-jihad web site Jihad Watch comments, this situation is a win-win situation for the Muslim fanatics because, "What they really want is to place NATO forces in a situation where they have to decide between dying in a bombing and using force to stop the bomber. The propaganda mill would then say that NATO forces fired on a child." And, yes, I seem to recall reading about those incidents in the hysterical leftist American newspapers.

Here is a few details from the Telegraph story worth reading. Click the headline to read the full story.
Afghan boy suicide bombers tell how they are brainwashed into believing they will survive 
Child suicide bombers say they were told by their handlers that the "bombs would not kill us, only the Americans would die".
The mission was as simple as touching two wires together, the little boy was promised. The resulting blast would obliterate the American infidels – but God would spare him from the flame and shrapnel. Abdul Samat would be unharmed and free to run back to the men who had fitted his bomb vest.

    Blindfolded and rigged with his explosive payload, the boy, who was about 13, was driven to his target in the Afghan city of Kandahar, after being plucked from the streets of Quetta in neighbouring Pakistan. Minutes before he was due to execute the attack, however, Abdul realised the lies of his recruiters seeking to turn him into a human bomb.

The largely illiterate boys are fed a diet of anti-Western and anti-Afghan government propaganda until they are prepared to kill, he said. But the boys are also assured that they will miraculously survive the devastation they cause.

    "The worst part is that these children don't think that they are killing themselves," said the official. "They are often given an amulet containing Koranic verses. Mullahs tell them, 'When this explodes you will survive and God will help you survive the fire. Only the infidels will be killed, you will be saved and your parents will go to paradise'."
That intense anti-American indoctrination is not confined just to Afghanistan. It is the basis of the Wahhabi text material taught in Muslim schools in Saudi Arabia and in the mosques in America financed by the Saudi government. And the practice of using children to carry out suicide bomb missions is a common practice found in many Muslim countries, including Palestine where the terrorist group Hamas, supported by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), publicly displays them.
How many times must we read about how the followers of Islam love death as much as we love life. And how often must we be reminded that Barack Hussein Obama says we must respect Islam. How many times, before we realize the Religion of Peace is not what it says it is.

Allowing Islamic Sharia law in America by way of precedent.

I have written about certain Muslim groups in America who have petitioned courts to allow Sharia law to be applied to cases rather than U.S. Civil Law. In a few of these cases the courts have allowed it then reversed the rulings upon appeal in higher courts. But every religion has their own beliefs and laws and Islamic Sharia Law is only one of them. Here in Kentucky a particular group of Amish men who belong to a conservative breakaway group of Amish known as Swartzentruber have refused to carry the reflective orange triangle signs on the back of their buggies to warn motorists of their presence because the buggies do not carry lights. Ten men from this sect were arrested and a court in Mayfield, Kentucky sentenced one of them to 10 days in jail for refusing to pay the fine. The others have not yet been sentenced. According to the Kentucky Post web site: "The men have a religious objection to the bright orange signs, which they say are flashy and conflict with their pledge to live low-key and religious lives." The group has appealed to the Kentucky Supreme Court to grant them an exception to this law. If such an exception is allowed, then the precedent will open the door to allow any religious group to ask for other exceptions to their own laws. And that includes Islamic groups who want to replace our laws with Sharia Law.
The ugly fact about precedent is that once it starts there is no end to it. Thankfully, the courts have rejected appeals to have Sharia Law applied to terrorist cases when the defendants claim they did nothing wrong because their religion allowed their actions. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, better known as the Underwear Bomber who attempted to blow up a Detroit bound airliner on Christmas Day in 2009, was on trial in U.S. District Court. According to a story posted on The Blaze, on September 14, 2011, "Earlier on Wednesday, the debate over Islamic law found its way back into the headlines when a judge refused Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s request to be judged by Islamic, rather than American, law. He expressed disappointment with Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds’ decision. He reiterated his belief that the Quran, Islam’s holy book, should set the rules governing his case."

But minor cases involving non-criminal matters between members of the same religion have found courts allowing religious law to be applied. A Florida appeals court has just cleared the way for lawsuit over a monetary dispute at a mosque to be determined by Islamic Sharia law -- in a U.S. court.  Despite the fact that this went to a Federal Court and not a State court, it is still nothing new since Jewish Talmudic law has been equally applied to monetary disputes and Talmudic Courts even exist in the orthodox Jewish communities in New York City. 
But the distinction needs to be made between monetary disputes and criminal law. On the web site Townhall, there is an excellent article entitled "The Shariah Threat" by Kathy Jessup that brings to light the extreme cases of this problem. One case that almost slipped through the cracks was thankfully overturned.

In New Jersey a judge refused a protection order for a woman raped by her Muslim husband, ruling the man’s abuse is allowed under Shariah law.
In 2008, a New Jersey judge ruled Shariah permitted a Moroccan man to rape his Muslim wife, despite state law making it a crime. The New Jersey Appeals Court overturned that decision and remanded the case, finally allowing the woman to get a restraining order against her husband while she sought a divorce. The appeals court decision said neither Shariah law, giving a husband physical authority over his wife, nor Muslim beliefs on the role of women provided the man an exemption from criminal intent under U.S. statutes.
While no one can see any hostile threat to a group of Amish men objecting to carrying traffic signs on their horse-drawn buggies, the fact that it was a criminal matter that warranted jail time for refusal to pay the fines makes it a matter of grave precedent that cannot be ignored. I hope the Kentucky Supreme Court agrees with this.
