One Jerusalem


Dear Friend of Jerusalem,

As a young man, I often wondered what people in America did as the Nazi storm clouds gathered over Europe. Later in college, I learned how the world closed its ears to the cries of Jews and others, as the barbarians marched through Europe and destroyed the lives of millions. I told myself that I would not stand by if I was in position to right an injustice.

In 2001, we founded One Jerusalem when it looked like Jerusalem was going to be taken from the Jewish people. We won that battle and continue to fight the war to protect the Holy City.

Today, the threats against Jerusalem continue to multiply. The Obama Administration and the European Union are openly advocating that Jerusalem become the capital of a Muslim state. The pressure on Israel to divide the Holy City continues to grow.

We continue to adamantly oppose any division of Jerusalem. We believe that Jerusalem is the capital of only one people - the Jewish people. And we are committed to keeping Jerusalem the undivided capital of the State of Israel.

Since our founding, we have built an active community of nearly 200,000 people. We need to continue to grow and we can do so with your continued help. You can assist us today by making either an end of the year or beginning of the year donation of $10 or more.

2010 promises to be a momentous year in life of Jerusalem and the State of Israel. One Jerusalem will continue to be in the thick of the battle. Please help us win this next battle. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.

Sincerely,
Allen Roth & David Goder

The new year that dawns in just two days is without question the most crucial year in Israel's modern history. The meetings I had in Jerusalem last week have made me more convinced than ever that we have reached the crisis point. The briefings I received and the information I was given has made it crystal clear that the threat of Iran has moved from theoretical to very, very real.

Throughout history the enemy has tried to destroy the Jewish people. From Pharaoh to Hitler, from Herod to Stalin, and today with Ahmadinejad, again and again the threat of death has loomed...and again and again there have been men and women of faith, courage and sacrifice who have made a difference--and today we are facing such a moment.

I flew to Israel last week just before Christmas to deliver a prophetic word from God regarding the new year--time is running out!

There is no doubt in my mind that unless something major changes, Israel will be at war within twelve months. She will be forced to attack Iran to stop its nuclear weapons program in self-defense, and the world will condemn Israel. The response will threaten Israel's very survival.

Thousands of missiles provided by Iran will rain down on innocent Jewish men, women and children. Thousands of suicide bombers will come--not with backpacks filled with nails and screws, but with dirty bombs that will kill hundreds of thousands.

God has spoken to me to urgently produce a major prime-time prayer special to mobilize millions of intercessors NOW. War does not have to happen. God can intervene and change the future...but we must do our part.

Click Here to Watch This Powerful Special Program: http://vimeo.com/8449568

I gave a warning throughout the 1980s and 1990s. I raised my voice to cry out that the terrorists would come to America. On 9/11 we all watched in horror as those unheeded warnings came true. I'm telling you today that unless we act it will happen again...and when it does, the unspeakable horror will make 9/11 look like the good old days.

Thank you to the 500 who have already responded to this urgent request. According to the eternal promise of God in Genesis 12:3, I pronounce His blessing upon them and pray, "Blessed be those who care for the deliverance of Israel and bless the Chosen People."

Sponsor This TV Special Today: https://www.donation-net.net/CTBF/AIBookandDVD.cfm?dn=1032&commID=134221315&ID=456632

I cannot air this special without your help. The liberal media does NOT want this message to get out. They will not extend credit to us. We must pay for the airtime on local stations in advance in order to communicate directly to the American people. I cannot do that unless you help right now. Only the truth can set us free and leave a legacy of hope and peace instead of a legacy of despair, death and destruction. But we must act!

And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: "Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king's palace any more than all the other Jews."

For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Esther 4:13&14

This is our moment. This is our "such a time as this." And we must respond if we expect to receive deliverance.

When you become a prophetic prayer sponsor, I will send you the DVD of this powerful television special as well as a copy of my newest book, Atomic Iran. If you already have a copy it makes a wonderful gift for a friend, family member or pastor.

When you send your gift of $100 or more, in addition to the DVD and the book, I will send you a copy of my prophetic message to the nation of Israel and my address to the Knesset (their Congress).

SEND YOUR GIFT AND BECOME A PROPHETIC PRAYER SPONSOR TODAY: https://www.donation-net.net/CTBF/AIBookandDVD.cfm?dn=1032&commID=134221315&ID=456632

There is still time to avert this disaster, but only if we act immediately. I urge you to send your best gift today to help us air this powerful prayer special so that we can leave a legacy of hope and freedom instead of one of disaster and despair.

I want to wish you a Happy New Year and ask for your support to help us protect Israel and our global Jewish family.

While there is time for you to get a 2009 tax deduction, please include JPT in your charitable giving! After all, I know you, like me, care deeply about Israel.

The threats from Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and from anti-Semitism globally are real--and must be stopped. Your significant tax-deductible help is needed!

Who is at War with America?



John R. Houk
© December 31, 2009


Newt Gingrich takes a surprising stand about al-Qaeda Islamic terrorist Abdulmutallab and Homeland Security. I found it surprising because the title of his article is supremely politically incorrect: On Terrorism it's Time to Know, to Profile, and to Discriminate.

It’s Time to know. What are we supposed to know?

We need to awaken to the fact that the purist proponents of Islam advocate the violent example of their prophet Mohammed to force non-Muslims to submit to Islam (which should have the politically incorrect name which is closer to its founder’s name – thus Mohammedanism).

It’s time to profile. Who should we profile?

The essence of America represents everything antithetical to Islam. Islam calls for intolerance of everything not Islamic. Hence women are inferior and absolutely subordinate to male family members. There is no free speech in which the content may be offensive to Mohammed, Islam or Allah. Hence advocating another ideology or religion in an Islamic nation could be either a capital crime or a community enforcement of death. No dissent to the rules of Shariah will be tolerated even though some Muslim nations do not institute some of the vilest rules of Shariah. I suspect the cutting off of a hand for theft is not observed in Egypt or Jordan. Yet it does happen in Saudi Arabia. A victim that is raped is subject to a whipping in Saudi Arabia. Whoever is found guilty of a capital crime in Saudi Arabia is subject to execution by beheading (which could be public). Adultery is punishable by stoning in Iran. The one stoned is more often the female than the male. This is on and on with the heinous practices of purist Islam in Shariah.

American authorities need to understand purist Islam and profile those that practice it as probable terrorists or homegrown subversives who seek the end of America the home of free and the land of the brave.

I am all about Freedom of Religion BUT purist Islam has NO place in America. Discriminate against advocates of purist Islam.

It is one thing to know about purist Islam. It is shaky ground to profile and discriminate a religion in America. It has become part of the American DNA to honor everyone’s choice of a religion or lack thereof. Many of the first people to colonize America were Christians fleeing religious restrictions imposed on non-State Church practitioners.

It took awhile for America to warm up to the idea of religions outside the traditional principles of Christianity. Although Jews had a better time of it in America than Europe, there was still early discrimination. Christian offshoot religions like Mormonism as an example, found intolerant discrimination for years. Yet here America is in the 21st century and discrimination of Judaism and Mormonism is rare occurrence. {I am not Mormon friendly however I believe one is a Latter Day Saint has the right to do be so. Mormon’s are not a threat to the American way of life. Promote America and are patriots.)

Sadly there are those who would still execute violence acts toward non-Christians however it is a practice that is considered heinous today.

Shucks my fellow Americans crazy cults that program the minds of their membership which may lead to dangerous practices of denial of medical aid or the demand for large chunks of one’s personal possessions or expects behavior of members that would be abhorrent to mainstream American society often is grudgingly protected by religious freedom inherent in the First Amendment.

Most of the Christian off-shoot cults and/or legitimate religions are usually very supportive of American Constitutional law for therein is protection from discrimination. Contrast this with purist Islam as espoused by Saudi style Wahhabi or Muslim Brotherhood or Salafist Islam which has the goal of overthrowing the U.S. Constitution to replace it with the rule of law inherent with Islamic Shariah. (Just a side note: CAIR subscribes to Wahhabi and Muslim Brotherhood ideology.)

Any ideology that calls for the end of American Constitutional protections has no place in America whether it is atheistic Communism or purist Islam.

I am guessing a person of Newt Gingrich’s stature would not be as specific as I have been. He still has too much to lose in an America still dominated by political correctness. Although I am certain Gingrich would deny this but I certain he would echo with better specificity if he felt free enough to do so.

Understand this: Purist Islam is at war with America. It is a war to terminate the American Way of life. When does America eschew political correctness and develop a coherent strategy that knows who our enemy is?

On Terrorism it's Time to Know, to Profile, and to Discriminate

By Newt Gingrich
12/30/2009
Human Events


After the Christmas Day near disaster in Detroit, it is time for Americans to demand effective anti-terrorist actions.

Over eight years after 9/11 and 30 years after the Iranian illegal seizure of the United States embassy and the 444 day Iranian hostage crisis, Washington is still avoiding being intellectually honest about the war we are in.

Our Politically Correct Government is Making Life More Miserable For the Innocent

America is long overdue for a serious global strategy that includes targeting threats such as the terrorist killer at Fort Hood, the individuals recently arrested in Detroit, Denver and New York, and the five Americans detained in Pakistan.

The scale, persistence and sophistication of the enemy requires an honesty, a clarity, and a scale appropriate to the response.

Once again, instead of targeting the source of the threats, our politically correct government decides to make life more miserable for the travelling public by imposing hopelessly meaningless rules such as not allowing passengers to leave their seats in the last hour of the flight. Bound by cultural sensitivities, the default reaction of the bureaucracy is to review the procedures and wring its hands ineffectively.

Today, because our elites fear politically incorrect honesty, they believe that it is better to harass the innocent, delay the harmless, and risk the lives of every American than to do the obvious, the effective, and the necessary.

It’s Time to Be Honest About What We Know

Before a lot more Americans are killed we must acquire the courage to tell the truth and to act on that truth.

It is time to be honest about what we know.

We know our opponents are radical extremists of the irreconcilable wing of Islam (Islamists, some would call them).

We know they have an ideology which is anti-female, desires to impose fundamentalist Sharia as a form of law, is hostile to other religions and is prepared to kill the innocent to achieve their goals.

We know how to identify these enemies but our elites have refused to do so.

Protecting the Rights of Terrorists Has Been More Important than Protecting the Lives of Americans

In the Obama Administration, protecting the rights of terrorists has been more important than protecting the lives of Americans.

That must now change decisively.

It is time to know more about would-be terrorists, to profile for terrorists and to actively discriminate based on suspicious terrorist information.

The United States should track down the owners of every website that promotes terrorism and systematically root them out. It should be as dangerous to a person promoting terrorism as it is to execute an act of terrorism.

The same should apply to the electronic communications of every known radical (and using these communications to track down every unknown radical).

The United States Must Actively Root Out Every Terrorist Website

The people behind these websites should be barred from getting a U.S. visa if not in the United States (concurrently, we should make it easier -- not harder -- for non-terrorists to get visas because we want to encourage the law abiding while discriminating against the potential terrorist).

An integrated data base for threats should have been expected, we now learn that it does not exist. This must be fixed.

It should be reasonable for the flying public to have expected that when the Nigerian terrorist's father reported he was going to a terrorist training camp he should automatically have been barred from getting a visa and from flying into the United States.

We Need a “Grand National Strategy” That is Bigger Than the Debate Over Afghanistan

The emergence of Yemen as the new planning, equipping, and training center for terrorism should remind us we need a worldwide "grand national strategy" (to use the World War II term) that is far bigger than our current debate over Afghanistan.

Americans should also note that ABC News is reporting that two of the plotters to blow the Amsterdam to Detroit flight out of the air were released from Guantanamo in 2007, attended an “art rehabilitation program” in Saudi Arabia, were released and took up senior leadership positions in al Qaeda in Yemen. Americans should also know that nearly half of the remaining detainees in Guantanamo are from Yemen.

The recent arrest of five Americans in Pakistan and the report there are 25 British citizens training to be bombers in Yemen should remind us this is a global war.

Moreover, the report that 74 Guantanamo detainees who have been released are back in the war trying to kill Americans should stop any further effort to close Guantanamo or to release terrorists.

The New Honesty Should End Any Thought of a Civilian Trial in New York for KSM

This new honesty about the threat should end any thought of a civilian trial in New York for 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammad with its dangers for exposing American intelligence information. All terrorists including would-be bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab should be tried in military tribunals as part of a serious war strategy.

The Attorney General and every Justice Department appointee whose law firms provided pro bono counsel for terrorists should be fired and replaced with lawyers who believe the lives of Americans are more important than the rights of terrorists.

The United States must have a policy of effective interrogation to understand our enemies and disrupt their planned attacks (read Marc Thiessen’s column from yesterday).

We Need a New Homeland Security Secretary Who Knows We Need a New Strategy

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano's claim that the Detroit bomber was allowed to board a plan with explosives hidden in his underwear proved the system worked is proof we need a new Homeland Security Secretary who knows we need a new strategy and a new focus.

These are the first steps toward defeating the extremists.

We should take them before there is a tragic attack that kills a lot of people.

We have been warned. Again.

Will we now act?

Your friend,

Newt Gingrich

A Mass Grave NO MORE



Ari Bussel writes with a frankness and harshness that righteous anger often produces when evil has perpetrated a deed. The evil deed was a typical day in Islamic terrorism: the murder of the innocent to strike fear to get a prize that is undeserved.

Be sure to read “A Mass Grave NO MORE”.

The Ugly American



Norma Zager has teamed up with Ari Bussel in a series called Postcards From Israel. Bussel and Zager write pro-Israel articles with a folksy personal perspective. You can find a decent concise bio of Zager HERE. Zager has a particular journalistic claim to fame for publishing evidence that an exposé about health risks delivered by Erin Brockovich and Ed Masry was based on junk science.

In this article Zager has praise for Joe Americans in tackling al-Qaeda terrorist on Northwestern Flight 253 to subdue him after he screwed up his attempt at homicidal suicide in the name of Allah. Zager contrasts American heroism with American government idiocy and EU multi-government idiocy in dealing with the Islamic agenda as espoused by purist Muslims. Then she praises Israel as a place where displaced Jews from growing European anti-Semitism will always have a home as Westernized Europe evolves into Eurarabia.

It is a good read!

Thoughts on BHO Immunity Extended to Interpol



John R. Houk
© December 29, 2009


I have to admit I neglect participation in the many Yahoo Groups that I am a member of. The lame reason for this is the management of several blogs including my flagship blog SlantRight.com. Nonetheless fate had its way and I ran into a post at the American Freedoms Yahoo Group pertaining to President Barack Hussein Obama delivering freedom of movement (including immunity) for the European police agency known as Interpol.

I have another admission. I really don’t know much about Interpol except from what I hear from entertainment venues such as motion pictures and television. In entertainment Interpol is often portrayed in a positive light.

Here is an excerpt from Interpol’s about page:

INTERPOL is the world’s largest international police organization, with 188 member countries. Created in 1923, it facilitates cross-border police co-operation, and supports and assists all organizations, authorities and services whose mission is to prevent or combat international crime.

INTERPOL aims to facilitate international police co-operation even where diplomatic relations do not exist between particular countries. Action is taken within the limits of existing laws in different countries and in the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. INTERPOL’s constitution prohibits ‘any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character.’


The about page goes on to inform of Interpol’s structural make with a brief explanation of the rules it can operate under. It is at the about page that I discovered Interpol’s official name is The International Criminal Police Organization. Here is a link different from Interpol with a brief history.

All the Interpol information appears to indicate a benign organization dedicated to the common good of the international community.

The problem Conservative members have with Interpol is its legal mindset congruent to European, United Nations and repressive Interpol member nations. At best European rule of law is egalitarian with a large dose of everything multiculturally diverse being imposed upon society. At worst Interpol is forced to respect the law systems of repressive regimes like Muslim dominated nations, Marxist regimes and whatever third world despotic nation that joined Interpol’s umbrella of international law. In neither scenario is there a compatibility with United States Constitutional Law.

Centrist egalitarian apologists, U.N. apologists and Leftist apologists only defense seems to be that the Conservative Right is Chicken Little saying the sky is falling. The apologist argument flows something like this: Interpol’s own constitution prohibits the organization from overriding the law enforcement agencies of sovereign nations. Another argument is Interpol is not an international police force with the power to enforce.

Check out this recent reality that international apologists conveniently do not include in their arguments:

During a conference in Singapore this week, delegates to the Interpol-United Nations meeting agreed: the budding global police force needs more power.

According to reports, the international group is aiming to step up its efforts to battle crime worldwide, claiming the need for its own special passports, shared global DNA and biometric information databases, cooperation with the UN’s military arm and much more. “It is the first step toward creating what Interpol calls a ‘global policing doctrine,’” reported the New York Times in an article entitled "Interpol and U.N. Back ‘Global Policing Doctrine.'’’

“As the world’s largest police organization, Interpol needs to remain at the forefront of all activity which enhances member country security and safety,” explained Interpol President Khoo Boon Hui. The organization — officially known as 'THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL POLICE ORGANIZATION - INTERPOL' — is comprised of more than 180 member nations, including a wide array of repressive regimes like China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Sri Lanka (which is currently operating concentration camps), and even Zimbabwe. It was originally founded in 1923 and is based in Lyon, France.

The government ministers and high-level police representatives in attendance endorsed a special declaration that would create a “roadmap” for international police to fulfill their “full role” in so-called “peacekeeping challenges,” an Interpol press release explained. The UN already has over 12,000 civilian law-enforcement officers deployed around the globe.

“The police will be trained and equipped differently with resources,” said Interpol Secretary-General Ronald Noble, known as the “Enforcer” for his role in the infamous Waco siege, murders, and subsequent coverup in his position as Undersecretary of Enforcement at the U.S. Treasury. “When they stop someone, they will be consulting global databases to determine who they are stopping.”

The group also began issuing its own passports on Tuesday, aimed at eliminating visa requirements so global cops can get anywhere quickly. “That a person is traveling with an Interpol passport for official business should be all the information a country needs in order to grant them access,” explained Noble, the first American to head the organization. “By agreeing to waive visas, member countries will ultimately be assisting themselves.”
(New American 10/14/09)


Yes, once again the apologists are either ignorant or are outright deceiving their readers. In the previous excerpt note the concept of increased international police powers and the words “world’s largest police organization.”

Now I have to say kudos to Interpol in its actual crime fighting mandate which has been successful to a certain degree in drug trafficking and human trafficking. But here is something to think about. You have to be aware that many European Leftists (God help us because many American Leftists) are hot to snag Americans in government and/or in the military for war crimes as defined by the International Criminal Court. Meaning those that bury their heads in the sand of Islamic and Palestinian propaganda is bent on prosecuting Americans and not Muslims and not Palestinians for committing global atrocities.

A post attributed to the obvious pseudonym of Mataharley at Flopping Aces draws what I believe to be very significant conclusions to President Barack Hussein Obama signing an Executive Order granting Interpol full immunity in America:

The second is this just may be a great dumping ground for future enemy combatants… alleviating this POTUS of the repercussions of an unsuccessful and controversial prosecution in the US federal justice system.

Both potential “int’l law” scenarios are a win win for the Obama extreme left base – a group feeling they’ve been abandoned by a “central” Obama. To this day, they thirst for Bush’s blood, and those in his administration. Obama can use the int’l court system and regulations to virtually hand them Bush’s head. Voila… a surprise campaign promise fulfilled.

As for Gitmo, for a POTUS who’s greatest skill is voting “present” and passing the buck of responsibility to others, Obama would be grateful not to fill up the cell blocks of a new “Gitmo” located on US soil if he could simply pass them off to the ICC. He again washes his hands of any ill-treatment in the hands of international authorities. If this is the case, there will be some new ROE following soon.

Time will perhaps reveal more what the Obama admin has planned with this subterfuge. Until then, were I the former admin members, I’d be keeping a watchful eye over my shoulder. But what I am most sure about is this Executive Order is not to benefit INTERPOL – who has functioned for decades without these immunities. Executive Order #13524 is all about the power of “appearing powerless” in the court of public opinion.


So check this posited theory. Flopping Aces is saying BHO will satisfy the fringe Left of the Democrats and open the international community to have the ability to come after President Bush and key members of his Administration to satisfy the blood lust of deceived and deceiving Leftists. President BHO will merely can skate in plausible deniability and abrogate American Constitutional Law to the treaty law of the ICC. Yes that is a surrender of sovereignty to global regulation.

Here is the American Freedom’s post that initiated my looking into the amendment to Executive Order 12425.

The boy who grew up to be a bomber



Scotland Yard and MI5 suspect that Abdulmutallab did not act alone in his plot to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253.

It is interesting that Abdulmutallab is not a person that would be considered an exploited third world individual disgruntled with what many Muslims call the great Satan; i.e. America. Rather Islamic terrorist Abdulmutallab is part of one of the wealthiest families in Nigeria.

To give credit that there are Muslims out there that do not subscribe to all the tenets of Islam as set down by its founding prophet Mohammed, Abdulmutallab’s father attempted to warn authorities in Nigeria concerning his Islamic terrorist son.

Here is the story from Britain’s Daily Mail.

Shameless Islamist Doublespeak Rages On



In comparison to Western ideals of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness which includes free speech and religious freedom, Islam is an evil antithetical to the American paradigm.

One example of this evil is how proponents of Islam will say one thing in the language considered holy to Islam as compared to the English translation of the same Arabic text. The obvious intent is to deceive with a sanitized version that is palatable to duped Westerners dedicated to the fallacy of multicultural diversity. Raymond Ibrahim discusses this deception in the essay “Shameless Islamist Doublespeak Rages On.”

The Year of Living Fecklessly



Examine the word “feckless”. It means:

    1. Lacking purpose or vitality; feeble or ineffective.

    2. Careless and irresponsible.

CAIR is the Enemy of Everything American



John R. Houk
© December 24, 2009


All Mainstream Media (MSM) outlets (including FOX News) have been failing to report on one of the most obvious National Security and cultural threats to America since the defunct Marxist/Leninist Soviet Union attempted a Fifth Column infiltration. That failure has to do with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its connections to West hating Muslim Brotherhood and violent Jew-hating terrorist organization known as Hamas.

CAIR was infiltrated on a non-law enforcement sting by the Gaubatz family who were able to collect damning evidence covertly of CAIR’s subversive activities against America in favor of a radical Islamic agenda. Gaubatz son and daughter were able to pull off a fake conversion to Islam and amazingly became privy to files of CAIR’s inner workings of which many are illegal.

The Father - Dave Gaubatz - teamed up with author Paul Sperry to disseminate the covertly acquired data into the book “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that's Conspiring to Islamize America.”

The media failure is in ignoring the verifiable data in “Muslim Mafia.” The enormity of this failure increased when CAIR attempted to use the wealthy Muslim tactic of Jihad Lawfare (aka Legal Jihad).

Because of this media failure whenever I come across a good essay or update concerning the “Muslim Mafia” I will post it. Here is one such essay entitled, “Much Ado About CAIR.”

JRH 12/24/09
*******************************
Much Ado About CAIR

By Deborah Weiss
Dec 24th, 2009
FrontPageMag.com


Is it a mainstream Muslim civil rights organization, an illegal lobbying firm, a terrorist front group or all of the above?

In the eye-opening new book titled Muslim Mafia, former federal investigator Dave Gaubatz and Paul Sperry (author of Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington) provide an inside look into the controversial tax-exempt organization known as Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

In a brazen display of courage, Dave’s son, Chris, feigned conversion to Islam and loyalty to its radical tenets. After winning over the trust of CAIR’s top leaders and inner circles, Chris Gaubatz aka David Marshall became privy to the private meetings and secret documents of this notorious organization. Muslim Mafia tells the story of what Chris and his cohorts discover when they infiltrate the infiltrators.

During a six month sting operation, during which time he earned an award from CAIR, Chris was tasked with shredding confidential documents. But instead, he brought them home for examination. He taped conversations, researched court documents, and investigated the organization’s finances, goals, strategies and key players. What he found is both fascinating and frightening.

Muslim Mafia portrays CAIR as nothing less than America’s fifth column. It is part of a network of organizations including ISNA, NAIT, MSA, and others which front for the Muslim Brotherhood and conspire to incrementally Islamize the west. The Muslim Brotherhood’s goal is to sabotage the United States from within, and its main weapon is deceit.

The book demonstrates that CAIR is anything but a true civil rights organization. Rather, it constitutes a turnstile for terrorist-supporters and victimizes mainstream Muslims who seek its aid. It has penetrated major US institutions, derailed counterterrorism training programs, placed moles in law enforcement agencies, and advised mosque-goers to remain silent in the face of FBI investigations.

Sadly, political correctness in collusion with Islamic radicalism has weakened America’s national security. Indeed, some in the FBI notified CAIR in advance of its raids, rendering the raids useless. And until recently, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies employed CAIR to provide “sensitivity training” to their agents, teaching them how to refrain from offending terrorist suspects held in custody. Field agents complained that higher ups seemed more concerned about appeasing organizations with terrorist ties than actually investigating them.

Recently, in the largest terrorism trial in the US, where several defendants were convicted and sent to jail, CAIR and ISNA were named unindicted co-conspirators. Despite this, aspects of law enforcement persist in “Muslim outreach” to these same organizations.

Political correctness is also causing America to lose control of framing the issues for the war on terror. And generally, those who frame the debate win it. Yet, succumbing to Islamist propaganda, the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center have distributed memos to their employees dissuading them from using a host of words and phrases ranging from “jihad” to “Islamic terrorism”. If America can’t name her enemies and discuss them, neither can she produce a strategy to defeat them.

It is progress that the FBI finally cut ties with CAIR subsequent to the Holy Land Foundation trial. It is also encouraging that some Congressmen are calling for an investigation of CAIR. However, much work remains. Muslim Brotherhood fronts are still infiltrating other areas of society including corporations, banks, courts, academia and media. Their persuasion tactics range from political donations and carefully crafted public relations messages to lies, propaganda, economic boycotts, name-calling, bogus lawsuits and veiled threats.

For example, CAIR affiliates have managed to obtain congressional staff positions. CAIR still works closely with some congressional offices, drafting legislation and otherwise targeting key committees to influence policy. Among its goals are to strip America of her counterterrorism tools, eliminate immigration restrictions from high risk Muslim countries, outlaw profiling, criminalize criticism of Islam, abolish aid to Israel, and withdraw US troops from both Iraq and Afghanistan. Some politicians share CAIR’s anti-freedom and anti-national security sentiments. Others have been the recipients of purposeful disinformation campaigns by various Muslim Brotherhood front groups that pose as mainstream.

The Pentagon’s Muslim Chaplain program exemplifies another Muslim Brotherhood success story. It was started by Alamoudi, then-head of the Muslim American Society, while he simultaneously raised money for Al-Qaeda. The program provided the Pentagon’s stamp of approval to radical imams. Though Alamoudi now sits in jail, the program he started remains in place.

The Treasury Department and Wall Street are the next targets for Islamists. They are pushing for sharia-compliant financing, the instruments of which are precluded from dealing with alcohol, pork, and any business with Israel. Dispute resolution must be handled by sheiks who are expert in sharia law, rather than by the SEC. The goal is to create a parallel financial system at odds with American values and lacking government accountability. Worse, a portion of the earnings from sharia-compliant financing goes to “Islamic charities” many of which are questionable at best. Never-the-less, the Treasury Department offered its first course titled “Islamic Banking 101” earlier this year.

Allowing Muslims and others of all faiths to immigrate to America and enjoy her way of life is the American way. But America cannot not allow her freedom of religion to be turned on its head and used against her. She ought not accommodate radicals who demand respect for the intolerant, attempt to reduce national security, restrict freedom of speech or ultimately seek the merging of mosque and state.

America must do more than merely defend herself from her enemies. She must be pro-active. America cannot not wait for another 9/11 or until CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups achieve their objectives. She must act now before it is too late.

Muslim Mafia is a fascinating read which, at a minimum, raises critical issues that demand to be asked and answered. To support its claims, it details copious citations from court records, declassified FBI documents, interviews with government officials, counterterrorism expertise, and internal CAIR memos. Get the book and become informed. America’s freedom and national security depend on it.

The Brazen Double Standard



ACT! For America continues its efforts to expose the dangers and hypocrisy Islam to Western Society. Below you will find a plea to join ACT’s petition drive calling for an investigation of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). ACT also draws attention to two articles relating to the trouble being caused Muslims and Muslim Apologists in the name of Islam (Mohammedanism is a better term). The first by expert on Islam Jeffrey Imm and the other is by expert on Islam Robert Spencer.

The Brazen Double Standard

ACT! for America
Email sent: December 21, 2009 12:33:36 PM


Today we have juxtaposed two short articles to clearly illustrate the brazen double standard that exists with respect to free speech and Islam.

The first is about Hizb ut-Tahrir, an Islamist supremacist organization that is allowed to hold conferences in America—the latest in a government building—because our government has not deemed fit to classify the organization as a terrorist organization. (Other nations have done so).

The second is about the upcoming trial of Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders, who is being prosecuted for speech that “offends” Muslims. The backdrop for this trial is the UN’s approval, just last Friday, of a resolution urging governments to criminalize speech that defames religion.

Given that the 57 member Organization of the Islamic Conference has been working feverishly to get such a resolution passed by the General Assembly, it’s not hard to guess what kind of speech they want banned.

Isn’t it amazing? An imam in America can call for “uzi jihad” against this country; Hizb ut-Tahrir can call for the victory of Islam over all other religions; the Qur’an can defame Jews by calling them apes and pigs…

…but don’t dare point out these facts, or else you might be guilty of “defaming” Islam!

In the forefront of this free speech double-standard in America is the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). For years CAIR has tarred critics of radical Islam as “Islamophobes,” “bigots,” and the like—simply for pointing out the truth about radical Islam.

Now CAIR is in hot water, thanks to information entered into the record at the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial and new revelations contained in the book Muslim Mafia.

There are now over 37,000 signatures on our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR. If you haven’t yet signed on, please click here to do so today! Thank you.

Chicago: Supremacist Group Conspires Against Rights

By Jeffrey Imm
December 16, 2009
[Email shown date: December 15, 2009]
Responsible for Equality and Liberty (R.E.A.L.)


In the Chicago suburbs on December 20, 2009, a group that has conspired to deny Americans their Constitutional and civil rights will be using a government-managed facility to recruit new members to their supremacist cause. In this case it will be the Islamic supremacist Hizb ut-Tahrir America organization, which will be using the Lombard Park District community building in the Village of Lombard.

On July 19, 2009, the Hizb ut-Tahrir America organization held a recruitment meeting in another Chicago suburb of Oak Lawn, Illinois, in the Hilton Hotel. The self-defined supremacist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir America at the July 19 event distributed brochures to the public calling for the “death penalty” for those who committed the “treason” of leaving Islam; this is found on page 62 of Hizb ut-Tahrir’s brochure titled “Islamic reformation.” An electronic form of such public death threats by Hizb ut-Tahrir against “apostates” is on the “official Hizb ut-Tahrir” web site Khilafah.com, linked to the Hizb ut-Tahrir America web page promoting the Lombard, Illinois event. Hizb ut-Tahrir rejects democracy and rejects secular nations, seeking only to promote an international “Khilafah” of Muslims, with its own set of laws.

Hizb ut-Tahrir America has sought to intimidate those who would exercise their Constitutionally-protected religious freedom by stating that in the global “Khilafah” of Muslims those who “publicly abandon Islam” should know “that they will be killed for it.” According to Hizb ut-Tahrir America’s handouts in the Chicago suburbs, those who choose such religious freedom are committing “an open attack on the basis of the state which is Islam, essentially it is viewed as treason and a political attack on the Khilafah in order to undermine it”… which according to Hizb ut-Tahrir America deserves “the death penalty.” On July 19, 2009, in full view of local law enforcement (and reportedly federal law enforcement) in Oak Lawn, Illinois, Hizb ut-Tahrir handed out this brochure calling for “the death penalty” against “apostates” from Islam to a reported 700 attendees at this conference.

Emboldened, Hizb ut-Tahrir America’s latest recruitment activity on December 20 will now be using a government-managed community building in the village of Lombard. There is no public denunciation by government officials. There is no public condemnation of this anti-democracy, supremacist international Hizb ut-Tahrir organization, with a long history of making death threats both in the U.S. and around the world. There is no public call for Hizb ut-Tahrir to retract its continuing promotion in the United States of a document calling for “the death penalty” against “apostates.”

Wouldn’t we be outraged if white supremacists were using a government-managed community building to hold meetings? Wouldn’t we be more than outraged if such a white supremacist group had been calling for the “death penalty” for white Americans who disagreed with their supremacist views? Wouldn’t we be demanding legal and law enforcement action to end such a conspiracy to violate others’ civil rights through intimidation?

At what point are open and public death threats (in writing no less) by supremacist groups to specific identity groups recognized by our government and law enforcement as nothing less than conspiracies to violate protected American civil rights? At what point is the use of public facilities to call for the “death” of identity groups recognized as a hate crime?

In America and around the world, we have seen the consequences of failing to take action against supremacist groups inciting hatred against others with death threats. Hizb ut-Tahrir and similar supremacist groups’ calls for “death” against others is considered a call to action for those who share this philosophy of hate. Just last month, on November 2, in Arizona, a 20 year old girl Noor Almaleki died from an attack by her father for not adhering to what his family told the Arizona Republic were “Muslim values.” We are certain that the majority of Muslim Americans would reject such supremacist views, but we have also seen similar killings in Ohio, Indianapolis, Texas, and Georgia. Who is next to die as a result because of such supremacist hate?

Death threats by supremacist organizations have very real, very deadly consequences. It is past time for Illinois and the federal government to act on the conspiracy by Hizb ut-Tahrir America to deny Americans’ freedom of religion, by its publicly calling for the death of those who seek such freedoms. It is not only an outrage; it is also a growing conspiracy to use intimidation tactics of death threats to violate our rights as American citizens.

Free Speech on Trial

By Robert Spencer
Dec 16th, 2009
FrontPageMag.com


Free speech goes on trial in the Netherlands on January 20, when Dutch politician Geert Wilders appears before the Amsterdam District Court on charges of having “intentionally offended a group of people, i.e. Muslims, based on their religion,” as well as having incited to hatred and discrimination.

What did Wilders do to warrant such charges? He told the truth about the global jihad and Islamic supremacism, and their roots in Islamic texts and teachings, in his film Fitna and elsewhere. But nowadays truth-telling is at such a premium that those who still dare to engage in it are threatened, harassed and prosecuted.

But Wilders is defiant: “On the 20th of January 2010, a political trial will start. I am being prosecuted for my political convictions. The freedom of speech is on the verge of collapsing. If a politician is not allowed to criticise an ideology anymore, this means that we are lost, and it will lead to the end of our freedom. However I remain combative: I am convinced that I will be acquitted.”

The very idea of trying someone for offending someone else is absurd – especially when the offended group is known to traffic in the PC multiculturalist coin of wounded feelings, so as to gain the political power that comes from victim status. That the Amsterdam District Court would aid and abet this absurdity and obvious manipulation unmasks the Wilders trial – even before it starts – as what it really is: an attempt by the nation’s political elites to silence one of their most formidable critics. The one who has the power to decide what is an actionable offensive statement or prosecutable incitement has the power to control the discourse – and that’s what the prosecution of Wilders is all about. If offending someone is a crime, can those who find hate speech laws offensive bring suit against their framers?

The action against Wilders is taking place, moreover, against the backdrop of the 57-government Organization of the Islamic Conference’s ongoing efforts at the United Nations to silence speech that they deem critical of Islam — including “defamation of Islam” that goes under the “pretext” of “freedom of expression, counter terrorism or national security.”

If they succeed in doing this, Europeans and Americans will be rendered mute, and thus defenseless, in the face of the advancing jihad and attempt to impose Sharia on the West — in fact, one of the key elements of the laws for dhimmis, non-Muslims subjugated under Islamic rule, is that they are never critical of Islam, Muhammad, or the Qur’an. Thus this prosecution in Amsterdam not only aids the advance of Sharia in the West, but is itself an element of that advance.

The stakes are so high in the Wilders case also because the OIC has a new, powerful ally as it moves against the freedom of speech. In October the Obama Administration actually co-sponsored an anti-free speech resolution at the United Nations. Approved by the U.N. Human Rights Council, the resolution, cosponsored by the U.S. and Egypt, calls on states to condemn and criminalize “any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence.”

Echoing Obama’s stated determination to combat “negative stereotyping of Islam” in the United States, the resolution also condemns “negative stereotyping of religions and racial groups.” This is, of course, an oblique reference to accurate reporting about the jihad doctrine and Islamic supremacism — for such reporting, and not actual negative stereotyping or hateful language at all, is always the focus of OIC complaints.

Last year the Secretary General of the OIC, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, issued a warning: “We sent a clear message to the West regarding the red lines that should not be crossed” regarding free speech about Islam and terrorism. And he reported success: “The official West and its public opinion are all now well-aware of the sensitivities of these issues. They have also started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility, which should not be overlooked.”

For the first time, an American President has bowed to the OIC’s demands and taken cognizance of that “responsibility.”

But Geert Wilders, and all those who stand with him, have a responsibility, too. We have a responsibility to bear witness to the world that the freedom of speech is a cornerstone of any free society, and that once it is gone, there is no defense against tyranny, no safeguard against the encroaching power of a protected class against whom there is no appeal, and from whose rulings there is no dissent. If Geert Wilders is found guilty, tyranny and authoritarianism will have won a huge victory in Europe, and in the world in general.

The stakes are as high as they can possibly be. Geert Wilders must prevail. If he does not, Europe, and America, and the world, are in for a long, dark night.

CAIR doesn't legally exist



Here is an update mailed by WorldNetDaily about the on going legal battle between the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the author (and research team) of the Muslim Mafia.

'Muslim Mafia' attorneys show in court that CAIR doesn't legally exist

Legal check mate dealt to CAIR today in federal court


(WASHINGTON) Dec. 21, 2009—Of all the bombshells that the authors of "Muslim Mafia" have exposed about the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the most explosive revelation—which will air today in federal court—would shake CAIR to its very foundations.


If those foundations actually existed.

But CAIR the organization, attorneys for "Muslim Mafia" investigators reveal today in court, legally doesn’t even exist! Like its purported goals of protecting Muslims, helping law enforcement sniff out terror leads and upholding the best of American traditions— all "Muslim Mafia" proves to be deceptive shams.

In fitting irony, this comes to light in a court fight that the notoriously litigious CAIR picked to ultimately suppress the First Amendment and silence the damning discoveries that the book documents in intricate detail.

"CAIR is not a valid entity,” explains attorney Daniel Horowitz' motion to dismiss in the case filed in federal court in the nation's capital. From there—piece by piece—he dismantles CAIR’s case.

Support the fight against CAIR by contributing to the WND Legal Defense Fund.

Background

Part of the research for "Muslim Mafia" stems from a daring six-month investigation by Chris Gaubatz—son of co-author P. David Gaubatz—and two young ladies. All three pretended to convert to Islam—he grew a beard, they donned veils—and landed positions as CAIR interns. In the process, they retrieved 12,000 pages of internal CAIR documents.

Those documents illustrate what the FBI, which severed ties to the organization, and members of Congress, already acknowledge: CAIR is a Saudi-funded, terror-front group that supports Hamas, positions interns and staffers in key congressional offices, and strives to undermine post-9/11 security.

WND Books recently published "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America," by the elder Gaubatz, a former federal agent and veteran terrorism investigator, and "Infiltration" author Paul Sperry. It alerted many Americans that CAIR, which bills itself as the nation's largest "mainstream" Islamic "civil rights” group, fronts not just for Hamas but also Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of al-Qaida.

CAIR disputes the Justice Department designation and condemns members of Congress who, thanks to "Muslim Mafia," demanded federal probes of the organization. Nov. 2, CAIR filed in federal district court in Washington, D.C., a lawsuit against the Gaubatzes.

CAIR is seeking punitive damages for trespass, breach of contract, conversion—the unlawful use of someone else's property—and breach of fiduciary duty. But CAIR does not defend itself against the book's claims. And the FBI has served a warrant asking for the same CAIR documents.

Taking apart CAIR's case

In 2007, the Justice Department labeled CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist finance case in U.S. history. That’s when the organization changed its name to the Council on American-Islamic Relations Action Network. But as Horowitz’ motion reveals:

    • Searches on the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs website for the name "Council on American-Islamic Relations" produce no results.

    • "CAIR" isn’t just a convenient shortening of the name. In its suit against popular radio host Michael Savage, its attorneys appeared separately for CAIR and for CAIR Action Network, or (CAIR-AN).

    • Under D.C. code, when a nonprofit corporation's articles of incorporation are revoked for failure to comply with certain reporting rules, "then all powers conferred on it are inoperative and it must cease all business activities... except for those activities necessary for winding up its affairs."


This further unravels CAIR’s case against the Gaubatzes. Claims of breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract are based on its allegation that Chris Gaubatz signed a confidentiality agreement when he began the internship. As Horowitz writes:

    • CAIR can’t produce evidence of any signed agreement

    • Even if it could, "this document would have been signed between a non-existent corporate entity and Chris Gaubatz. There need to be two parties to a contract."



Horowitz poked more holes in CAIR’s case, including:

    • Claim of trespass—invalid. The group has not even insisted in its pleading that its premises were private or not open to the public.

    • Claims its e-mails are protected by the Electronic Communications Privacy Act—invalid. The law does not apply to office computers at CAIR, but "protects users whose electronic communications are in electronic storage with an [Internet service provider] or other electronic communications facility."



"CAIR is not a valid entity and even if it were, the exposure of its inner workings is part of the price it pays for being a controversial group in a hotly contested arena," Horowitz says in the brief's conclusion. "If the press or publishers had to prove the purity of their sources before publishing we would never hear about the various romances of Tiger Woods (which might be a relief) but we also never have heard of the Pentagon Papers."

In the well-known case brought by the New York Times against the federal government, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the right of the press to the Pentagon Papers—the top-secret Defense Department history of U.S. involvement in Vietnam—because they related to "matters of great public concern," Horowitz argues.

The lawyer who represented Daniel Ellsberg in the Pentagon Papers case, famed New York City lawyer Martin Garbus, also is defending the Gaubatzes. Another high-profile advocate, Bernard Grimm of Washington, D.C., is a third member of the legal team.

WorldNetDaily has come to the defense of the Gautatzes in aggressively fighting the lawsuit and set up a legal defense fund inviting the public to help support.

"This is a battle we absolutely can win," said Farah, "especially since we have retained the very best First Amendment attorneys in the world – including the lawyer who defended Ronald Reagan – to defend our author and our book. But lawsuits are very expensive and we urgently need our readers to help us fight this radical Islamic group's attack on us."

"Muslim Mafia" reveals how CAIR:

    • Debated launching a smear campaign against Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer of California after she cited concerns over its associations.

    • Angles to excuse, protect and prevent police from prosecuting Muslim men who beat their wives, decreeing such beatings are OK for American Muslims so long no mark remains.

    • Works to gut U.S. anti-terrorism laws

    • Loosens U.S. Muslim immigration policies

    • Infiltrates the government to institutionalize Shariah law

    • Hinders FBI investigations of terrorist suspects

    • Tips off terrorist suspects prior to raids

Nidal Hasan and the FN Herstal 7.5



John R. Houk
December 21, 2009


Thomas Wells asks some good questions about Nidal Hasan and the Ft. Hood Massacre. He probably is responding to the last time I posted on this subject: “Congressman: Why is Obama stifling Hasan investigation?

JRH 12/21/09
*****************************
Comment by: Thomas Wells

Did Maj. Hasan use the illegal armor piercing type of bullets, or the regular kind that can be bought at a store? The significance of this is that if he did have illegal armor piercing rounds, where did he get them from? Are people in the Army involved in supplying him with armor piercing rounds; either by negligent procedures or as accomplices, since military units have access to this type of ammo? If he had the regular type of ammo that can be purchased over the counter, then why not let our troops buy some ammo and guns to put it in and carry them on base, as they can carry them when they are not on the base?

_____________________________

It is difficult to retrieve the information from my Google efforts to answer Mr. Wells’ question. Evidently the specifics about Nidal Hasan’s ammunition haven’t been readily made public. Media research seems to come down on the side that the military grade of ammunition was unavailable to Hasan.

The gun control crowd insinuates it is possible because Mexican drug lords utilize the same FN Herstal 5.7 with armor piercing ammo against American law enforcement.

The gun rights crowd insists it would have been too difficult for Hasan to purchase the armor piercing ammunition and point to a report that Hasan indeed came back to the “Guns Galore” store later to buy the legal civilian version of the FN 5.7 ammunition.

Wells’ last question about allowing military personnel to carry armor piercing weapons like civilians with weapons permits is an interesting one. The answer is simple though. Gun control nuts represented most by the Democratic Party have made military bases gun free zones.

Imagine that: a fully operation military facility with weapons available yet since no one can carry weapons on base a lone Islamic terrorist can murder unarmed military personnel in large numbers. Thank you President Clinton.

We Must Leave the UN



John R. Houk
© December 21, 2009


The concept behind the victors of WWII in creating the United Nations was to perpetuate the principles of Western democracy and the promotion of world peace. This followed a war in which the losers had a global agenda of racial Supremacism, State management based on the rule of man rather than the rule of law and extreme repression to keep the fabric of society tightly under the grip of the ruling elite.

Just before the Cold War went full scale, the Western powers tossed then Communist USSR a bone by including that repressive regime in the power design of the United Nations Security Council. The UN Security Council is the only apparatus within the UN that has any real teeth of enforcement in the world body. That enforcement is based on the five permanent members having an absolute veto which terminates any resolution or action debated by the Security Council.

The thing is the United Nations of the beginning does not look like the United Nations of the 21st century. The members of the UN’s early days were predominantly influenced by Western democracies. The UN’s current members have swayed the world body to be under the greater influence of non-democratic or out right repressive regimes. Many of the despotic regimes of great influence are nations dominated by the intolerance of the theo-political religion known to its adherents as Islam.

It is ironic the UN is more influenced by these despotic nations than did the old Soviet bloc and Chinese satellite States did during the Cold War days. The one world domination principles espoused by the current UN seems to be greater than the old Communist bloc nations of old. The success of the new UN minimizes religious liberty, free expression and human rights more efficiently than did Marxist utopianism. I sense the concept of being politically correct in the West has brought on an unwarranted guilt complex which fears offending other cultural ways of thinking. The guilt complex has allowed Western cultural principles to be whittled away by warped egalitarian political correctness which demands multicultural integration at the expense of the West’s Judeo-Christian-Greco heritage.

Frankly the USA has not yet totally succumbed to this self-immoliating of culture. The growing influence of the Leftist Secular Humanism in America has been like a magnet slowly dragging our culture into the dangerous egalitarian political correctness currently dominating Europe.

For America to stand on the Constitutional Republic initiated by our Founding Fathers, America needs to eschew membership in the world body that is becoming more and more anti-American, anti-Liberty and anti-Freedom.

The UN agenda could actually lead to situation in which the U.S. Constitution is only valid as much as it does not contradict laws initiated by the world body. The power of taxation may not be in the hands of elected members of the House of Representatives if America agrees to pay global taxation. The essence of global taxation is a Leftist concept of spreading the wealth of affluent nations to benefit poorer regimes stuck in repression. It would be a myth to think the poor of despotic regimes would benefit as much as the ruling elites of the repressive regimes themselves.

In essence the political correct guilt complex will rob the USA of sovereignty and take away voter representation away from elected government.

This is not to say that an international organization is bad. In fact a better way to ensure Liberty, Freedom and the Pursuit of Happiness is to engage likeminded nations that look after each other’s national interest in economics and security. This would entail confronting nations or groups of nations that would threaten the economy or security of likeminded nations grouped in a confederated union respecting each other’s sovereignty.

This personal rant of dislike of the path of the United Nations was meant to be an introduction to an essay by Rick Moran entitled, “United States out of the UN – NOW”.

History’s Lessons

Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC)

The leading self-destructive reality in America today is not the sense of entitlement characteristic of recent generations. It is not the fear and dishonesty bred into our voices due to the rise of political correctness and its demand that we abandon the truth in favor of a more “acceptable” outlook.

It is our forgetfulness.

We have forgotten the dauntless spirit and tenacity it took to win the Revolutionary War, World War I, and World War II. Those men had a vision for the future, a pride in American ideals, and a courageous determination to succeed that the young simply don’t understand today. When my grandfather told me that “they just don’t make ‘em like they used to,” he was right. The reason is that we have forgotten the beauty and necessity of that valor and replaced it with a desire to appear noble in the eyes of our enemies, rather than intrepid and unapologetic in our approach to those who aim to destroy us. (P.S.—Terrorism is not a man-made disaster, Mr. President. It is a heinous and unrepentant commitment to murder. The culprits should be treated with as much respect as they showed to our citizens on September 11, 2001.)

We have forgotten the nobility of our Constitution, opting instead to transform it into a “living and breathing” document devoid of the sensibility that led some of the brightest men ever to form the greatest nation ever.

We have forgotten our history and allowed revisionist historians and Ivory Tower academics to distort truths that, if factually recalled, would lead us straight to prosperity. Students are taught to frown upon Reagan’s economic philosophy and to instead glorify FDR and Johnson’s big government programs. There’s only one problem with that. Reaganomics yielded a surge in jobs and national wealth. FDR’s Social Security Act and New Deal, much like Johnson’s Great Society, drained American resources and bred a weakness and dependency into our culture that stripped ambition and personal responsibility from the fabric of many American souls. As I have outlined before, big government programs have never fostered economic growth. There’s no reason to believe they will do so now.

I invite you to do what the current administration would prefer that you don’t. Put your party affiliations aside as you gaze back at our history. Remember what it means to be an American…what it meant to those men who put their lives on the line because they refused to accept “taxation without representation.” Open your eyes to America’s past and it will be your best guide to how to build us a bright future. And do it before it’s too late.
