The Mark of PBS?

The upcoming date of 6/6/06 certainly hasn't gone unnoticed, Ann Coulter's new book "Godless" is being released on that day ,as well as the latest Omen movie. There have been reports that some parents may induce labor so thier child won't bare the "mark of the beast" on thier birth certificate. PBS's Frontline doesn't want to miss out on the action, so on this Devilish day they're running
The Last Abortion Clinic
. That's right, with the end times breathing down thier necks, PBS is really going to stick it the "Religious Right" by running a episode about Abortion clinics.

Recent news coverage has focused on the new Roberts Supreme Court and how its decisions might affect abortion -- an issue that has divided the country for decades. Later this month, the Court will take up its first major abortion case in five years: Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.

But while the spotlight has been on Washington, there is an equally significant story playing out in local communities. Pro-life advocates have been successfully spearheading campaigns in states throughout the country to pass laws that regulate and limit access to abortion.

According to one abortion provider in the South, who prefers to remain anonymous: "The assault on abortion rights is very clever. It's very smart. And we are losing."

Perhaps the timing is a coincidence, but somehow I doubt it.

What Hamas Thinks

In this week’s cartoon, the Statue of Liberty is holding a book entitled “Democracy”, but according to the Palestinian Media Watch, PA media has consistently targeted the Statue of Liberty in the past.

The Statue of Liberty, also known as Lady Liberty, is an internationally-recognized American symbol of freedom and democracy. Such ideas are an anathema to the PA; at a rally in March 2006, the newspaper Al-Hayat Al Jadida accused the West of “trying to penetrate Islamic youth with dubious things such as the ideas of democracy”.

Iraq War Vet Suing Michael Moore

A double-amputee Iraq-war vet is suing Michael Moore for $85 million, claiming the portly peacenik recycled an old interview and used it out of context to make him appear anti-war in “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

Sgt. Peter Damon, 33, who strongly supports America’s invasion of Iraq, said he never agreed to be in the 2004 movie, which trashes President Bush.

In the 2003 interview, which he did at Walter Reed Army Hospital for NBC News, he discussed only a new painkiller the military was using on wounded vets. “They took the clip because it was a gut-wrenching scene,” Damon said yesterday. “They sandwiched it in. [Moore] was using me as ammunition.” Read it all at Stop The ACLU Here's hoping the suit is successful, taking advantage of a double amputee
to make millions. It seems like a "culture of corruption" is catching up to the "Slacker Nation" leader. Perhaps he has the extra money stored in his freezer?

White House Screens United 93

From Drudge,

US President George W. Bush late Tuesday hosted an "emotional" White House screening of the film "United 93," with relatives of some of the passengers who died aboard the September 11, 2001 flight attending, his spokesman said.

"It was a very emotional night, because you had family members and a handful of the families had not seen the movie before," White House spokesman Tony Snow told reporters Wednesday.

"At the conclusion ... it has a very powerful ending, and it's dead silent as the credits roll" except for "the sounds of quiet sobbing in the room," he said.

"It was an extraordinarily moving event," said Snow.

After the screening of the film -- the first major movie to address the 2001 events -- Bush met and spoke with some of the families, the spokesman said.

"United 93" chronicles how the passengers of one of the four flights taken over by Al-Qaeda operatives to attack the United States on that day desperately fought against the hijackers in an effort to take control of the plane.

The flight, which it is believed the hijackers had hoped to plow into the White House or US Capitol building, ultimately crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.

GTB Blogburst

by Heidi at Euphoric Reality


The new immigration bill (the most "sweeping reform in 50 years") S. 2611 is an amalgam of petty causes, illogical provisions, unstructured "solutions" with zero allowances for implementation, and self-contradictory language. Despite the mess, it was passed by self-righteous politicians who repeated the mantra "it's better than doing nothing." This from the same gaggle of do-nothings who outright rejected the House's law enforcement bill.

The Senate bill has our President's full support - this same bill is a derivative of one structured by Ted Kennedy and John McCain, and supported in full by the majority of Democrats. That alone ought to give one pause - President Bush, a Democrat?

Peggy Noonan says, "The disinterest in the White House and among congressional Republicans in establishing authority on America's borders is so amazing--the people want it, the age of terror demands it--that great histories will be written about it."

She opines that it is possible that..."the administration's slow and ambivalent action is the result of being lost in some geopolitical-globalist abstract-athon that has left them puffed with the rightness of their superior knowledge, sure in their membership in a higher brotherhood, and looking down on the low concerns of normal Americans living in America.

I continue to believe the administration's problem is not that the base lately doesn't like it, but that the White House has decided it actually doesn't like the base."

S. 2611 is less about law, and more about a weird, mutant agenda that melds licentiousness with an utter disregard for the end result. There are quite a few details in S. 2611 that the media has ignored and that the legislators would rather you know nothing about. Some were provisions germane to the original Kennedy-McCain bill or the pseudo revision of Hagel-Martinez, the rest are amendments that required separate votes to accept or reject. Here's what you need to know about the Senate's fiasco.


The Senate failed to pass an amendment that would've made amnesty contingent on effectively securing the border. Their priorities are completely opposite those of the American people, who have repeatedly made it clear that our borders must be secured before anything else. Furthermore, buried in Arlen Specter's manager's package, an amendment proposed by Dodd makes it mandatory for our government to consult with Mexico before taking any security action along the border, to include building any barrier or any enforcement along the border. This includes everything from federal troops, and state-mobilized National Guard, down to local law enforcement. In other words, even if a county sheriff mobilizes a posse to guard the border, he must clear it first through Mexico. This effectively gives the Mexican government veto power over our national security concerns!

We've heard a lot about the 6,000 National Guard troops, assigned to help with back-up duties in order to free up Border Patrol agents. Unfortunately, that will make only 500 additional agents available to apprehend and detain lawbreakers at the border.

The White House adamantly insists that Guard troops take no role in law enforcement, even though, so long as they are under the command of their governors—as they will be under the president’s proposal—they are allowed to do so. Republicans worry that when the Guard shows up for duty, Lou Dobbs’ cameras won’t be far behind, recording their impotence as they merely alert border agents to the whereabouts of entering illegal immigrants whom they must passively watch.

"Merely alert border agents to the whereabouts of entering illegal immigrants?" Sound familiar? The National Guard will, at most, be performing Minutemen duties. But wait! I thought the Minutemen were "vigilantes", Mr. President.

A tiny concession to border security was passed (Sessions, R-AL, amendment #3979) which allows for the increase of fencing and vehicle barriers along 370 miles of the southwest border of the United States. Unfortunately, existing hardware - including rancher's broken cattle fences - would be counted towards this paltry total.

What's most appalling is that a Democrat tried to push through an amendment (Leahy, D-VT, amendment #4117) that would revise the existing ban on granting refugee status to aliens who have provided "material support" to a terrorist organization! Fortunately, the motion was killed, but the fact that it was even considered and proposed is deeply troubling! Who can take these guys seriously?


Ted Kennedy passed an amendment (#4066) that makes it unnecessary for any illegal alien to have an employer attest that they are employed when petitioning for permanent legal residence, and "self-employment" is sufficient. Plenty of room for fraud and corruption there!

Now here's where the whole argument for "cheap labor/doing jobs Americans won't do" flies out the window. Barak Obama (D-IL, amendment no. 3971) passed an amendment that extends the Davis-Bacon Act's "prevailing wage" levels to all temporary guest workers. That puts them ahead of American workers, who have this protection only on federal job sites:

So guest-workers (but not citizen workers) must be paid Davis-Bacon wage rates for jobs in the private sector if their occupation is covered by Davis-Bacon. Presumably because Senate Democrats' union bosses thought this provision too modest, an amendment by Senator Barack Obama, approved by voice vote, extended Davis-Bacon wages rates to all private work performed by guest workers, even if their occupations are not covered by Davis-Bacon.

There goes their precious "cheap labor" - this provision will effectively price many guest workers out of the market. "Guest workers" will have legal status and visas that entitle them to real wages, overtime, deductions like unemployment and social security, and workers’ rights that legal workers now enjoy. Illegals will still be cheaper. Thus, twenty million illegals will be amnestied right out of the job market. Then what do we do with them when millions of new illegals flood into the country to take their place?

Now enter the litigation factor: foreign guest farm workers, admitted under the bill, cannot be "terminated from employment by any employer . . . except for just cause." In contrast, American ag workers can be fired for any reason.


We've been assured time and again that newly amnestied "guest workers" will have to pay back taxes for the years that they lived here illegally - except that they really won't. A loophole in the new bill provides that only two years of back taxes will need to be filed. I don't know any American citizen that can just choose not to pay taxes for years! Additionally, the Senate has now provided for illegal aliens to apply for the Earned Income Tax Credit. Our government will end up paying them!


Senator Ensign (R-NV) tried to remove the provision allowing illegal immigrants who receive legal status under the legislation to receive retro-active credit for Social Security benefits for time that they worked before receiving legal status. Arlen Specter killed it. The bill allows illegal aliens to receive Social Security benefits for the years that they worked illegally, even if they paid into Social Security under a false number or using a stolen identity! As an American citizen, if I were caught stealing someone's identity or forging documentation to avoid paying taxes, I'd go to jail. Not so illegal aliens! There are NO penalties for breaking those laws - only retro-active rewards. The longer they broke the law, the bigger the pay-off.


Senator McConnell (R-KY) sought to add to the bill a requirement that all voters in federal elections be required to present a valid photo identification.

"It is nonsense to suggest that somehow a photo ID for one of our most sacred rights should not be protected by a requirement that is increasingly routine in almost all daily activities in America today," said the Kentucky lawmaker, second-ranking Republican.

But Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., likened the proposal to a poll tax or a requirement for voters to pass a literacy test. "Now is not the time and this is not the place to consider an amendment that may disenfranchise a million or more poor, minority, disabled, and elderly voters -- all of them American citizens," he said.

The proposal barely passed on a vote of 49-48, but unfortunately, it remains in limbo, evidently doomed by arcane rules now that the Senate has voted for cloture.

What the bill DOES provide for is a Bureau of the Census report to Congress on the impact of illegal immigration on the apportionment of Representatives in Congress. Of course, they need to count them - they are, after all, their newly bought electorate!


Here is a perfect of example of self-contradictory language within the bill itself. The bill supposedly protects American workers by ensuring that new immigrants will not take away jobs. However, the bill's own definition of "United States Worker" includes temporary foreign guest workers, so the protection is meaningless.

Senator Kyl (R-AZ, amendment #3969) attempted to ensure that temporary workers stayed temporary by removing the bill's provision allowing guest workers to apply for permanent residency. The Senator from his own state, McCain, killed the amendment.

Also, thanks to Senator Santorum (R-PA) the bill expands the visa waiver program (Immigration and Nationality Act, Sect 217) to numerous additional countries. At this point, why even bother with a visa? Waive it all!!


Senator Allard (R-CO), concerned by the incalculable administrative costs of implementing S. 2611, raised a point of order about the budget. Such a move is allowed under the Budget Act when the projected cost of legislation under consideration exceeds a certain level. If the point of order is upheld, the legislation cannot proceed. The Senate irresponsibly waived the protective rules under the Budget Act, rejecting the point of order 67-31. Apparently, no cost is too great.


Bush's former chief economic adviser Lawrence Lindsey blows the whistle on the "end of the line" fiction being used to sell the Bush/Senate immigration reform:

At present, there are hundreds of thousands of people around the world who are waiting to immigrate legally to America. They have already waited in line to get their first appointment, then to submit the paperwork, then been called back to answer more questions. And still, they wait. In places like Hong Kong, the waiting time may be as long as 15 years. Most of these people have relatives--cousins or grandchildren, for example--who live and work and pay taxes in America and even have become American citizens.

While the process isn't pretty, there is no good alternative. Permission to reside in America is very valuable....

Comprehensive immigration reform promises that people already in the United States illegally can apply for citizenship, but requires them to "go to the back of the line." But a key question is, the back of which line? The reform bill before the Senate doesn't require illegal immigrants to go back home--to, say, Hong Kong, to the end of the 10-to-15-year line there--to get a green card. Instead, it allows the current illegals to receive their green card immediately--having, in effect, jumped the line at the U.S. consulate abroad. Then, like other green card holders, they will be able to work here, collect government benefits like food stamps and Medicaid, and travel as freely as if they had a U.S. passport.

The line the current illegals will go to the back of is the citizenship line. Under the proposed law, current illegals, newly minted green card in hand, will have to wait six years, then get in line to apply for citizenship. But even after six years, they will be years ahead of many people who have gone through the legal process and are waiting overseas for a consular official to let them come here. Once those who have been playing by the rules all along get here, they too have to wait six years before getting in line for citizenship.

If we really mean "the back of the line," that should be behind everyone who is already in the pipeline to come here legally.

Let's be real: this bill allows those who come here illegally to gain a huge advantage over those who follow the rules. This, in effect, creates an irresistible incentive for others to ignore the rules and come here illegally. Fast track it by going illegal - there's no reason not to!


Lindsey has further concerns about the utter non-viability of the Senate's bill:

In 2004, the INS issued 946,000 green cards and naturalized 537,000 people. The proposed immigration reform anticipates giving green cards to up to 11 million people [likely closer to 20 million] in one fell swoop and making them eligible for citizenship six years later. It is inconceivable that the INS could handle an eleven-fold increase in its workload. Do we really intend to pass a bill that purports to document these 11 million people without setting up a system capable of providing them the promised documentation? If we don't, everyone else who is already here legally but needs a visa update, or has adopted a foreign-born child, or wants his aging mother to join him in America, will get swamped by the tsunami of newly legalized people seeking documentation.

VDare concurs and says that the guest worker program is an administrative catastrophe in the making: "Already, there are backlogs of millions of applications with CIS [Citizenship and Immigration Services] for the various immigration benefits. If any guest worker program or amnesty is enacted, the sheer amount of work in processing, receiving and vetting applications and the assorted work that goes with them (interviewing, fraud investigations, verifying documentation) will without a doubt delay any application already pending—even if additional staff are added. This includes, of course, those innocents who bothered to apply to enter the U.S. the right way." No wonder, legal immigrants are so upset with this whole thing!

I do not understand how the Senate has been so willfully blind to the will of the people and so determined to ignore the future costs of their folly:

The approved bill would send the U.S. population skyrocketing towards a billion people by the close of the century -- with no analysis done of the impacts of this mass population explosion on housing, congestion, overcrowding, education, the environment and the overall quality of life. Local communities have not been consulted, and virtually no preparation has been undertaken to provide for the enormous burdens this legislation would entail. It reflects the degree to which the Senate is completely out of touch with the average American.

Nor does the bill take any serious steps that would improve immigration enforcement -- especially in the interior. It merely continues a cycle of rewarding lawbreakers and clothing a loss of border control with the patina of legality. Rather than face the reality of today's immigration crisis, the Senate has enacted a terrible bill that once again puts the interests of the American people last. The bill's cost is staggering, the administrative burdens crushing and the consequences for the cohesion of the future American nation -- no longer bound by a common destiny of the rule of law -- are severe.

Someone Please Pay Attention To Meee!!!

Al Gore, still trying to shake off the loo-czar image of droppong the 2000 election, keeps his name in the papers by playing the extreme lefty.

""Al Gore has made his sharpest attack yet on the George Bush presidency, describing the current US administration as "a renegade band of rightwing extremists""

Oh please! Conservative are outraged with Bush over so many issues that the Congressional Republicans are trying to distance themselves from him.

""Denying that his politics have shifted to the left since he lost the court battle for the 2000 election, Mr Gore says: "If you have a renegade band of rightwing extremists who get hold of power, the whole thing goes to the right.""

So he always was a extremist, this is good to know. As far as things moving to the right if Republicans win, Al is right on top of things! Nothing gets past him. Gore went on to say he's not running running in 2008.

Personally I don't it matters who the Dems trot out there, they're all going to capitulate to terrorists, cut the military, appoint liberal (read soft on crime)judges, raise taxes, and try to ram a huge government program down our throats. For all my complaints about Bush, if Gore/Kerry had been elected, there's no doubt in my mind the world would be a safer place for al-Quada, Saddam and the Taliban. The Supreme Court would be much more liberal, running to protect the rights of terrorist's.

Clinton's inaction after the first WTC bombing, the USS Cole etc.. could become future policy if the Republican's don't wake up and smell the approval ratings.

Yet another grassroots anti-illegal immigration site has popped up, this is based in Yuma AZ. Yuma is just 10 miles or from from the border. Here's what they have to say,

Eighteen Ways to Help Solve Illegal Immigration

(It’s a Good START!)

In days and times when most Governments (and individuals) are liken to Buddhist Monks, in that they are afraid to scratch their heads least they should incommode their vermin, it is up to a few concerned citizens to take a stand in order to put things in their proper perspectives.

Below are 18 items I believe would curb a great deal of illegal immigration while simultaneously ending the “financial feast” of those who profit from it!

* 1: Eliminate all mention of Section 245(i), even if expired,
from the US Immigration and Naturalization Code. No more
Amnesty, ever.

* 2: Get legislation through Congress that would enable States
to deny goodies to Illegals, a la Prop #187.

* 3: Outlaw Mexican matricula consular IDs, and kick banks
accepting them out of the FDIC. Legal depositors will withdraw
from recalcitrant banks.

* 4: Beef up Border Security with manpower, resources, and a
Volunteer Reserve, if necessary. No troops, and no messing
with posse comitatus, this should be a civilian effort.

* 5: Beef up the immigration courts and set deportation
hearings for two weeks after apprehension, with no bail.

* 6: Run sting operations at day laborer sites.

* 7: Establish two-way communication between the IRS and
Border Security, and start apprehending and deporting Illegals
using false SS numbers (no, the current over-hyped voluntary
program doesn't count).

* 8: Seize the assets of businesses knowingly hiring Illegals
under the RICO Act, as they are ongoing criminal enterprises.
Prosecute executives who knowingly hire Illegals.

* 9: Compile biometric information on Illegals, and declare
that they will be permanently ineligible for immigration and

* 10: If the United States declares that the above proposals
against Illegals will be diligently enforced after a certain
date, many Illegals will leave beforehand, and a relatively
small number of well-publicized cases of enforcement
throughout the Lower 48 will result in millions of Illegals
deporting themselves.

* 11: End the busting of immigration caps by limiting family
reunification to spouses and dependent children, and counting
them against the caps when they are brought in. Require all
future immigrants to declare their future intent to bring in
family upon arrival. This way, families can immigrate in a
controlled, orderly fashion without the current deceptions
being used against the American public. We must have truth in

* 12: Outlaw anchor babies, and give the option to the Illegal
parent of taking the child with them upon deportation, or
putting them up for adoption.

* 13: Outlaw bilingual ballots, and resume the
English-speaking requirements for citizenship.

* 14: Establish English skills as a prerequisite for future
immigrants. Let's start admitting folks who will hit the
ground running toward assimilation.

* 15: Shut off new immigration to nations that offer dual
citizenship. Disqualify current immigrants from those nations
from future American citizenship.

* 16: Make Mexico and Central America our cheap import sources
of choice with tariffs on manufacturing from other sources,
especially China.

* 17: In return, Mexico must open up to American investment by
allowing the sale of real estate to us and guaranteeing
property our rights. Getting Mexico to fix its economy is

* 18: Establish a guest worker program where an initial bond
is posted by the Illegal and his employer, say $500 each, with
more withheld from the Illegal's earnings, as security for his
departure from the US by the specified date. Guest worker
visas must be applied for in the workers' countries of origin,
and participants are only eligible to be employed by their
sponsoring employer. Violation of these terms will render the
worker ineligible for any future visas or residence in the US.
Any guest worker program can only come after anti-Illegal
measures are in place. Handshake promises of future diligence
will not be trusted from any politician of either party,
including President Bush.

While this list is not exhaustive, I believe it is a good start!!!!

Censoring America

Woman Honor Thyself tells us of the felony stupid going on in Michigan,

“Censoring the word “America” from our own schools is something Josef Stalin, Adolf Hitler and Osama bin Laden would never have thought possible. Michigan has done it without a whimper.
Keep America’ in Michigan schools State bureaucrats want to do what Stalin, Osama could only dream about continues..

In perhaps a well-intentioned, but pernicious example of political correctness, the Michigan Department of Education is attempting to ban the “America” and “American” from our public schools. Even though the word “America” appears in the department’s own civics and government benchmarks, the department’s style protocol for the Michigan Education Assessment Program requires that “America” and “Americans” be expunged from our testing and grade level expectations. Last week, the department ordered that our hard-working teachers not utter the words. Read more.

This school district needs to have it's federal funding pulled now. Let them collect thier money from "North America".

Scenes We'd Like To See


My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of Iraq regime has been completed.

Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.

This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action w ill be complete within 30 days. It is now to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell-holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth.

Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China.

I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic rel ations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sit es where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York

A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2 Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change.

Mexico is also on List 2. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put em? Yep, border security. So start doing something with your oil.

Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty - starting now.

We are tired of the one-way highway. Immediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska - which will take care of thi s country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there. They care.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying, "darn tootin."

Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eli minate hunger in America. It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. It is time to eliminate World Cup Soccer from America. To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thanks guys. We owe you and we won't forget. To the nations on List 2, a final thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic. God bless America. Thank you and good night. If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier.

God's Promise

Sometimes, I wonder about coincidences like this.

A rainbow is seen in the sky as the Pope Benedict XVI pays his respect to the victims of the former Birkenau Nazi death camp in Oswiecim, southern Poland May 28, 2006. Calling himself 'a son of Germany,' Pope

Genisis 9:12-16
And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. 16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."

MSM Dhimmitude

I rarely read the papers any more, I haven't suscribed to a paper in years, but today I purchased the local paper to check the classifieds and stumbled upon this bit of agitprop.

Islam: Suspended in centuries past?

""In the more than four years since the Sept 11, 2001, attacks -- a period that has seen many more such horrendous acts conducted "in the name of Islam"-- many Americans wonder whether Islam itself is at the root of the problem.""

Some of us don't wonder at all, we did a little research.
9:111 Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain. 9:111 = 9/11/01, get it?

""There is no doubt that, as the first Muslim, the prophet lived an exemplary life. ""

The beheading of 900 people in Medina and enslaving thier women and children for profit, seems less an exemplary. Mohammed, the only prophet in Islam is the only prophet to behave in such a manner.

""Islam today is the only major world religion in which fundamentalism has become identified as mainstream. However, this fundamentalism is not representative of mainstream Islam -- a tolerant, peaceful religion that thrives from Southeast Asia to South America.""

Egads, where do I even start with this mess? The violence in Iraq is between Sunni's, Kurds and Shia's. The article takes the predictable steps to explain to gullible infidels that Islam is being "highjacked (sic)" by the Wahhabi sect. Even the casual observer should be able to see through this, with over 5,000 people mudered in the name of Islam since 9/11, it takes a true believer in Islam to ignore them all. Even here in America, the DC snipers and NCU Chappel Hill incident were done with numerous mentions of Quranic text. There were no mentions of Wahhabism though.

Whether little girls are beheaded in Indonesia or a genocide in Darfur, it's an isolated incident. Every time, an isolated incident to the 5,000th power. To say that violent Jihad is carried out by only a tiny minority of Muslims is like saying that very few Germans were Nazi's in WWII. It entirely misses the point, it's the ideaology that is the problem. After 1400 years, Islam has spead it's jihad worldwide, it can't be stopped by the lies propogated by it's apologists in the media.

9:5 Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

The truth is right there before us, convert, submit to dhimmitude or die.

A Man's Home Is His Castle

So, what kind of goverment holds it's own borders in contempt?
hat tip, Always On Watch

Sixth Column
One caller to the Rollye James show stated that his attempt to put up a fence failed, as it was torn down by the government. The property owner erected a fence on his own property, at his own expense, and government workers came and tore it down, stating that they did so because it interfered with migratory pathways.

Fortunately, the matter was taken to court, and the government's action was overruled.

No doubt the ACLU came too the rescue

Minutemen Do The Government's Job

Michelle Malkin
tells us that today the Minutemen begin building the border fence.

It's sad that it's come to this, but the federal Government just refuses to to lift a finger.

Chris Simcox, President of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (“MCDC”), today announced plans by the MCDC to work with local Arizona land owners to build border security fencing on private land along the border with Mexico.
At present, six private land owners have partnered with the Minutemen for the commencement of construction of border fencing on their land. Surveillance cameras on the fencing will be monitored via computer by registered Minutemen across the country. We have chosen a fence design that is based on the Israeli fences in Gaza and on the West Bank that have cut terrorist attacks there by 95% or more. In order to be effective, a fence should not be easy to compromise by climbing over it with a ladder, cutting through it with wire cutters, ramming it with a vehicle, or tunneling under it undetected. No fence can be a 100% impenetrable barrier—but a good design will be time-consuming enough to get through that Border Patrol agents can be alerted to get to a point of attempted intrusion before the intrusion can be completed. We thank Colin Hanna and We Need A for the design concept.

Simcox says those involved in the planning hope to keep costs near $150 per foot.

Two construction companies to date have offered to inaugurate groundbreaking, coordinate volunteer construction crews and donate the use of the necessary heavy construction equipment.

The groundbreaking will begin in Arizona on Memorial Day weekend, unless in the interim President Bush deploys National Guard and reserve troops to immediately secure the out-of-control southern border.

The fencing will be built with privately donated funds, engineering and labor and will be used as an example to educate the public about the feasibility and efficacy of fencing to secure America’s borders from illegal incursion by aliens and international criminal cartels. A non-profit organization dedicated specifically to this purpose will facilitate and administer donations for construction of the fence. Monetary and in-kind contributions for this effort will go directly into building materials for this private, volunteer fencing project.

I'm tired of hearing it can't be done, Simcox has proven it's just a matter of will.

Valley Of The Trolls

last Friday I posted the National Review article Top 50 Conservative Songs called Rockin' The Right, and for the first time since my Neil Young post, I'm getting trolled. But this time it was much worse, in quantity and tone. Because you see, conservatives aren't supposed to listen to rock, and to comment on it is just blasphemy. I tracked the source of the trolls and found a multitude of profane bigotry that would make even the most devoted haters blush. I apologize for the language.


you cannot simultaineously denounce the evils of popular culture and try to coopt it as supporting your cause. either Jazz is bad because it makes white women dance and smoke Mary Jane, or it’s good because it supports rugged individualist ideals.

fucking pick one, or I swear to almighty god, I will bash your fucking skull in with a fire extinguisher, stab your, let a pack of wild dogs have sexual intercourse with your stab wounds, then bash your skull with the fire extinguisher again

Jazz is great because it emotes the complexity of the musicans playing it. Just because I love Charlie Parker doesn't mean I have to approve of his drug abuse, which eventually killed him and all too many great artists. Besides, no one's stealing your music, I'll still let you listen. Just put down the fire extinguisher because we're well armed.

decided to attack me personally.

Here yah go everybody, rightwing blog boy gots your free NRO content online right here: But just in case he wises up and douses the post, here’s the complete list complete with the idiotic commentary. I love how so many of the “conservative” songs are by people who the NRO crowd would truly despise, if they had half a clue. Fucktards.

Lefty's love that last word, to use it is to truly depise.
Karpad strikes again, this time he really loses it.

murder, Filthy Assistants. I’m going to shoot them with my bowel disruptor, set on “anal volcano.” I’m going to leave that shit in buckets made of the corpses of their family until it dries and hardens into bricks. I’m then going to shove said bricks back where they came from until the stomach acid covered dry turds push out their noses. I’m going to then set the entire mess on fire and put the fire out with with a combination of my urine and battery acid. I’m then going to shoot that burn wet mess with a vulcan cannon until I’ve dropped enough lead to cause birth defects in children in the surrounding 50 miles for the next 70 years. I will then drop a bus full of child rapists on the tattered, bloody remains/crater and then pour enough concrete over the entire setting to keep Chernobyl contained. I’m then going to write their names on their cement mausoleum with hot pink spraypaint. I will then drink cheap vodka and proceed to vomit and piss on said names, in that order. and no, I don’t think that’s even remotely over the top for punishment for their sins of profound stupidity.

Uday, is that you? I thought you were dead! Good luck with the vomit, piss and anal volcano, LOL!

isn't embarressed by karpad's scatological rantings.

Y’know I think Karpad is right. I myself have been quite disgusted with Conservative Punk and their disgusting connections to hate groups like Protest Warrior. Next thing you know we’ll see “conservative industrial” — well that’s already happened with the extreme Zionist noise project Barzel, which seems to have “neo-conservative” stamped all over it…

Can you say anti-Semetic? Sure you can...

In the comments section of my post, 2wolves said,

Conservatives don't create new art. The "new" and the "art" parts scare them.

I majored in art. I fronted a punk band in the early 80's. Open your mind, just a little, it won't hurt. Amanda's commentary to various songs on the list,

The only real question is does this mean that when capitalists kill children, they do it with Jesus’ blessing? ....They should have just picked “Smack My Bitch Up”, because it conveys the same sort of message but in a much more digestible form.....Picking relentlessly at the Communist Bloc is not the way to endear yourself to the neocon establishment that adores their methods. I’m just saying....

Always sensitive and open minded....
Amanda's post is entitled, " 50 top conservative rock songs, subtitle “Quit calling us squares, you beatniks!”
Actually, go ahead and call me a square, I'd prefer it to any of the myriad of foul words that frequent your site. Some of the comments were quite civil and I have to agree that some of the songs were a bit of a stretch. But why so angry? I'm sure Miller would admit that most rock lyrics are liberal, but to think that there are no conservative ideas in all of rock is even a further stretch.
In closing I leave you with the lyrics to the Blaster's American Music,

"We got the Louisiana boogie and the Delta blues/We got country swing and rockabilly, too/We got jazz, country-western, and Chicago blues/It's the greatest music that you ever knew/It's American music/It's the greatest sound, right from the U.S.A."

Galloway : Assassination Of Blair Would Be Justified

Via Drudge Report

George Galloway continues to out-stupid himself;

In an interview with GQ magazine, the reporter asked him: "Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber - if there were no other casualties - be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?"

Mr Galloway replied: "Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."

This, after he just gushed over

Here's George chatting with
Uday Hussien.

According to the Sun, Galloway:
Greets Uday like an old friend, shaking his hand and twice calling him “Excellency”. Jokes with his pal about losing weight, going bald and failing to give up smoking cigars. Orders watching journalists not to publish parts of their conversation. Taunts America — and vows to stick with sadistic Uday “until the end”.

Here's George
drinking milk like a cat.

Galloway is a loathsome traitor, here's a lovely quote,

Just hours after four bomb attacks killed 52 people on London's transport system last July, Mr Galloway said the city had "paid the price" for Mr Blair's decision to go to war in Iraq and Afghanistan. "

Galloway is one who needs to "pay the price".

Save The Mt Soledad Cross!

Stop the ACLU
has the latest on the Mt Soledad Cross in San Diego.

In an effort supported by Christian advocacy groups nationwide, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders met with White House lawyers in Washington, D.C., to ask President Bush to issue an executive order that would save the Mount Soledad cross after a judge ruling in a case brought by the ACLU ordered it removed.

The cross is a war memorial for the veterans of the Korean war.

INFORMATION WARFARE: Massive Misreporting in the Media Ignored

Here's another gem from Strategy Page,

May 25, 2006: A number of stories have been unreported on - or
misreported - in the war of terror. The mainstream media is willing to discuss
the car bombs. But which of these stories have been the most damaging
in terms of not getting out?

@ The memos from Saddam's regime. These memos, often ignored by major
mass media outlets (unless targeted for derision), have generally shown
the terrorist connections that Saddam's regime had, and showed that the
regime was also interested in acquiring weapons of mass destruction.
Far from lying, the Bush Administration had largely been spot on.

This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, Saddam did in fact use WMD's against the Kurds and Iran. Many of Saddam's scientists and military men have testified the WMD's were hidden before the Invasion. Which only makes sense, why would he leave them lying around for the coalition forces to find?

@ Guantanamo Bay and the detainees. Instead of focusing on how the
United States was trying to handle prisoners in a new type of war, the
media focused on scandals, most of which (the Koran flushing and torture at
Guantanamo Bay claims) had little, if no, basis in reality. The one
that did, was used to flog the military constantly.

Newsweek lied, people died.

@ The American efforts in the Horn of Africa. This is a theater of the
war on terror where few shots are fired by American forces, but where a
small number of American troops have carried out a major strategic
offensive that has been largely successful.

I must admit this is the first I've heard about it.

@ The intelligence efforts that have meant no large-scale attacks have
hit the United States since September 11, 2001. Efforts like NSA
surveillance have often been attacked, often for political gain, without
regard for the damage done. These efforts also have made it possible to
fight the war without taking extreme measures that could have infringed
upon civil liberties.

If we are to win this war or any war, we need a reasonable news media that isn't out to hang the President.

@ Contributions of various allies to the war on terror. The notion of
unilateralism is not only untrue, but by not highlighting these
contributions, it set the stage for the United Arab Emirates to be given very
short shrift during a fear-mongering campaign in recent months.

I disagree here, the UAE doesn't need to run our ports to be an ally. Homeland security should be solely the resposibility of the US. If the UAE is really as close an ally as Bush says,they should understand that.

@ Al Qaeda's media-based strategy has also been ignored. A better
understanding among the American people of what al Qaeda is trying to do
would help them understand the events. Instead, the mainstream media is
playing along with al Qaeda's strategy.

Amen! Weakening our resolve shouldn't be the role of the media.

@ The true level of progress in Iraq has also been ignored. Rather than
the entirely gloomy picture the mainstream media has portrayed, what
has happened is that al Qaeda has largely been defeated in Iraq. Three
elections have been held, and have resulted in the second real democracy
in the Middle East.

See above.

@ Afghanistan is also a subject of misreporting. In one recent case of
misreporting, the media recently focused on headlines indicating a
hundred dead. The details were hidden - 87 of the 100 killed were Taliban
fighters who were killed in a series of attacks, the other 13 were
Afghan police.

Other than that, Afghanistan is largely ignored.

This misreporting has become a constant pattern, and it is costing the
United States. In a real sense, the mainstream media's failures will
not end the war, but will instead prolong it and make it more costly. -
Harold C. Hutchison

Michael Reagan said on his show that the media is too heavily invested in it's position to ever back off, too far out on the limb of "no WMD's" to ever acknowledge any good of ridding the world of Saddam and dismantling of the Taliban in Afghanistan. This is why the new media is so huge and the newspapers and nertworks are taking a beating.

Fox Reconquista Tour of Aztlan

Salt Lake City Tribune

Mexican President Vicente Fox 's plane touched down in Salt Lake City today in an attempt to save the current open border policy. Fox is in favor of a comprehensive approach to the border problem, but is vehemently opposed to fences.

Speaking to a gathering of the Latino community, Fox called for "comprehensive" immigration reform that would allow for "legal, safe, orderly migration, respecting fully human rights and dignity."
But, he added, "We don't put up walls. That's not the way you're going to fix the problem."

I assume Fox means the problem of millions of unskilled, poverty-stricken workers in his country. A fence would really clog the flow. After all, keeping these people in Mexico would endanger thier "human rights and dignity".

Fox pointed to a wide range of statistics that show Mexico's economy is growing and indicated there are great opportunities in Mexico in tourism, investment in infrastructure, energy, mining as well as food production and agriculture.

But what about the millions who are willing to risk thier lives to escape Fox's "improved" economy?

The news media has been told Fox will not answer any questions.

Ah! The media on a tight leash, Vincente must've felt right at home. It's interesting that Fox would choose Salt Lake City as his first stop., many consider the huge lake to be the northern border of Aztlan. Fox will also visit Alta California and Washington as part of the tour.

Is Russia’s Future Islamic?

hat tip; Strategy Page

Those who a know little geography know that southern Russia borders are near several Islamic states, Kazakhstan’s population is 50 % Muslim, Azerbaijan is 93% Muslim. Russia itself has an estimated 21 million Muslims. Although this is only 15% of the total Russian population, Russia’s long term trend of low birth rates and short life expectancy could reduce Russia’s population by a full third by 2050. In other words, this would leave Russia with 100,000,000 people in 44 years.

Muslim Russians give birth at a rate nearly triple to their non-Muslim countrymen. All these facts and trends lead to a possible Muslim majority in Russia by 2050. The birth rate is of such concern for the government that financial incentives have been offered to families to encourage more children. It’s not working, the downward trend of births has continued since before the end of the cold war. Non-Muslin Russians continue to average less than 2 children per family.

Russia’s Muslim population has grown 40% since 1989 due to births, immigration and conversion. In that same time period the number of mosques has grown from 1,000 to 8,000. To make matters worse, the sluggish economy has made small families a tradition. The climate and 70 years of communism have stunted economic growth and instilled a defeatist attitude among her people.

The caliphate may have it’s eyes cast far northward for the first time, pining for the still large and dangerous nuclear arsenal in Moscow’s control. A lot can happen in 40 years, and Russia is no stranger to radical change. Will the Motherland hold fast to her traditions? Or will she slowly sink into a Islamic theocracy? The residents of Beslan know full well the will of Islam, where the local middle school was held hostage by Muslim terrorists seeking a Chechynan independent state. The result was 326 killed, 727 wounded.

""“How to perceive Islam after Beslan?”, an article published on September 15 in the Moscow daily Izvestia, deacon Kuraev writes: “What happened in Beslan is not just a crime. It was a religious crime. It was ritual murder, the murder of children with prayers in the background. The terrorists killed in the name of their faith. They killed people shouting Allah Akbar and sacrificed innocent children on the altar of their religious ideas.”

Kuraev goes further: “They were not just gangsters who killed. They were people of one faith who killed Christians in the name of their creed.” One episode, he believes, makes this point clear. Sacha, a 13-year-old boy, was among the children taken hostage in the school. He wore a cross around his neck. When one of the terrorist saw it, the man turned his gun towards the boy and shouted: “Pray!” Sacha reacted by shouting “Christ is risen!” and escaped through a window.""

Russians would be well advised to take control of this situation while they are still in control.

GTB Blogburst

It's always good to hear I'm not the only one that thinks this is our most pressing issue. Jihad Watch has reported many times about suspected terrorists and actual Hezbolla operatives entering the US through our borders. This blogburst spells out the very real danger that is foolishly ignored by the MSM.

Our Open Borders Will Be The Death Of Us Yet

I live in Texas, and sometimes I think people don't truly grasp the fact that the chaos on our borders is not a border state issue - it threatens them directly, no matter where they live. The fact is that our border chaos is directly linked to our national security. Terrorists already have and continue to illegally cross our border, blending in with illegals from Mexico and Central America, or brazenly crossing over with an armed escort of gang members or even the Mexican military.

Watch this video of an ongoing investigation done by the news team from KGRV TV serving

Harlingen-Weslaco-McAllen -Brownsville, Texas. (Video will open in your media player - it's a news segment.) It is part of an ongoing series highlighting the culmination of months of investigative research into the flow of terrorists over our borders. Fred Burton, a counter-terrorism expert of Stratfor, was interviewed on camera. He stated that now is the perfect time for terrorists to sneak across the border. Escalating violence and an unprecedented flood of illegals is distracting law enforcement and stretching it thin. Zapata County sheriff, Frederigo Gonzales Jr. says that as for WMDs, it is not a matter of "if", but "when".

About one in every 10 caught border jumpers is an Arab. I don't think I need to point out that if they are sneaking into the country illegally, they fit the profile and are probably terrorists. Unfortunately, we only catch about 25-33% of the flood of illegals, and estimates are that we absorb 3 million illegals (Time Magazine, September 2004 and Bear Stearns July 2005) that do make it through each year. That could mean that about 10% of the illegals that DO make it across are possible terrorists. Do the math: that's potentially 300,000 terrorists making it into our country free and clear. Let's get really skeptical and downgrade that so we feel better about it - let's say only 1% of those that make it through are possible terrorists. That is only 30,000 - per YEAR. Is that OK? Considering it took 18 terrorists to wreak the terror of 9/11, is 300,000 or even 30,000 terrorists OK with you?

If that's a reasonable risk for you, then consider the percentage of potential terrorists that have already crossed the border and are living among us - sleeper cells in our own neighborhoods. The low estimate of illegals inside our border is 20 million, the high is 29 million. What's 10% of that figure? Is a few million potential terrorists a reasonable risk?

For some strange reason, the smaller number of 30,000 is almost scarier to me. Maybe it's just easier to grasp a few thousand insane killers bent on our destruction, instead of an army of millions. Maybe it's because we can do still something about thousands - IF we act swiftly and ruthlessly - but a few million is an almost insurmountable...and it's possibly far too late. Fred Burton agrees with that assessment – he said the numbers of terrorists that have been caught is nothing compared to those that have made it through – those numbers are huge.

If you are an open borders type and think it's wrong to build any barrier along the border, or in any way militarize our border; or if you think illegal immigration is just about nice, poor people who want jobs, you need a wake-up call. Let's look at some of the issues raised by the investigation in the video above as well as some others I've written about in the past year.

1. Several months ago, according to KGRV TV, two IEDs and components for 33 more were discovered in Laredo. It won't be long before we face here in America, what our brave soldiers face every day in Iraq. And IEDs may be the least worrisome. If it's a simple matter to smuggle 3,000 pounds of drugs across the border, as the sheriff mentioned, how much easier is it to carry across a suitcase bomb - a dirty nuke?
“Several al-Qaeda leaders believe operatives can pay their way into the country through Mexico and also believe illegal entry is more advantageous than legal entry for operational security reasons,” Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Admiral James Loy testified on February 16 before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “At home, we must prepare ourselves for any attack, from IEDs (improvised explosive devices) to Weapons of Mass Destruction…from soft targets like malls to national icons.”

2. A terrorist jacket, with patches depicting an Arab military and 9/11, was found in Hebbronville, TX. Finding terrorist garb is nothing new. In 2005:

Ms. Garner, who grew up here in Naco, population 7,000 says..."It is more dangerous and pernicious, with a growing number of people of different nationalities coming across the border, including from the Middle East, India, and Afghanistan."

The evidence of that comes in Islamic prayer rugs found in the desert dust, Arabic literature left by still-warm campfires, and Afghani head garb caught on cactus quills. The FBI also recently found a drug tunnel beneath the bedroom of a schoolmate of one of the Garner girls, with $250,000 cash hidden inside.

3. In November 2005, a confirmed al Qaeda operative was arrested near the Mexican border and turned over to the FBI. He had been living in Mexico for six months and making notes of the movement of people and police officers.

4. Also in November of last year, A congresswoman from NC went on the record as noting that three al Qaeda operatives were being held in a jail in Texas, after being apprehended on the U.S.-Mexican border.

5. In 2005, in southern Texas alone, 51 suspected terrorists were captured while crossing the border [from the KGRV news report]. They came from countries such as Iran, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and Pakistan, and were arrested on various charges of gun smuggling and illegally wiring large sums of money. We do not know where they are today. That's a problem.

6. In 2005, 10 Egyptians were arrested in Douglas, Arizona.

7. In 2004, a high-level al Qaeda operative (comparable to Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11) was arrested in McAllen, Texas attempting to make her way to New York after illegally crossing the border by swimming the Rio Grande. Though she was on a terrorist watch list, she had illegally entered into America at least 250 times before being caught!!!

8. In September of 2004, Action 4 News in Harlingen, Texas, learned that Al Qaeda cells - each group having from seven to fifteen suspected terrorist members were found just across the Rio Grande Valley in Mexico.

"We know from intelligence reports that there are middle easterners that are making their way in our direction," said U.S. Congressman Jim Turner during a news conference at the Veterans Memorial International Bridge in Brownsville.

"We don't know their purpose, but we do know that they are there and those reports are coming in increasing numbers. So it should be a wake-up call."

9. In July of 2004, Adnan El-Shukrijumah, a high-ranking Al-Qaeda leader and one of the most wanted terrorists in the world, was spotted in Honduras meeting with members of the MS-13 gang. By August, he had may his way north and was spotted in north Mexico.

By the way, if you need proof that al Qaeda is working hand-in-glove with Latino gangs, go here - there's plenty of reading.

10. In October of 2004, an intelligence report supplied to the Department of Homeland Security by Russian security services said that a group of 25 backpack-carrying Chechen terrorists - all white - illegally entered Arizona by way of Mexico last summer.

11. In September 2001, 10 Yemenis were arrested by Mexican police before trying to cross from Agua Prieta into Douglas, Arizona. They were released and they returned to Agua Prieta to try again, where they were joined by several other unidentified Arabs.

12. In November 1998, over 100 Iranians were apprehended in Arizona because of a tip called in by a border rancher.

Those are just a few examples. Our border security is non-existent, and our enemies are well aware of that fact.

While entry into the U.S. is their primary goal in establishing a base in Latin America, Islamist terrorists -- well-aware of the allure Marxism once held for many south of the border -- also see the region as a potential breeding ground for Islamic converts due to its poor economic and social conditions and corrupt governments.

For instance, the Shia terrorist group Hezbollah wields a strong presence in the tri-border region, a lawless, crime-ridden area where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay intersect. Both Osama bin Laden and 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed are also said to have spent time there, during the 1990's.

It was Mohammed who in 2002 encouraged alleged dirty bomber Jose Padilla to 'enter the United States by way of Mexico' in order to carry out attacks on U.S. targets, according to Deputy Attorney General James Comey.

Ironically, before converting to Islam and volunteering his services to Al-Qaeda, Padilla belonged to the Chicago chapter of the Latin Kings -- like MS-13, a violent Hispanic criminal gang.

Although U.S. agents were able to collar Padilla before he could carry out a terrorist attack, the U.S. border strategy, as presently construed, may one day soon yield a much less savory result.

Hm, do you think so???

Nevertheless, as stated in the KGRV news report, our government does not want us to know of the terror threat flowing over our border. Homeland Security refused to respond to KGRV's requests for an interview on the subject. And the government is doing everything they can to shut down the citizens who were once the greatest intelligence asset to to the Border Patrol in stopping terrorists crossing the border: American ranchers living along the border.

Perhaps the most valuable asset that the Border Patrol has is the aid of rural Cochise County (AZ) citizens. Many have attempted to help, in accordance with Arizona law. Through that legal process, landowners may execute a citizen’s arrest for individuals or groups trespassing on their property. However, even that has been nullified.


Rural citizens here have met with savage recriminations for exerting their legal rights. Immigration advocacy groups howl in protest, as does the Mexican government. Their lawyers have demanded that the ranchers be prosecuted for false arrest, kidnapping, intimidation, criminal assault and violation of civil rights...Illegal immigrants have now sued some Cochise County citizens in American courts.


Ben Anderson, a retired U.S. Army colonel who lives in Sierra Vista, Ariz., has made a detailed study of the border danger since the flood of illegals began through Cochise County in 1997.

“There is only one way to handle this,” the colonel says firmly. “In a world now filled with biowarfare agents, backpack nuclear devices and chemical weapons like Sarin gas, we must militarize the border. There is no other way to stop the flow.”

Congressman John Culberson (R-TX) concurs:

FBI Director Robert Mueller had previously "confirmed" in testimony before [a Congressional] committee "that there are individuals from countries with known al-Qaeda connections who are changing their Islamic surnames to Hispanic-sounding names and obtaining false Hispanic identities, learning to speak Spanish and pretending to be Hispanic immigrants."

"And these are clearly Arab terrorists," Rep. Culberson added, "from countries like Yemen, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. They're crossing the border, pretending to be Hispanic immigrants, and then disappearing."

Rep. Culberson said news of al-Qaeda’s penetration of the U.S.'s southern border has him worried that the next terrorist plot could involve setting off simultaneous truck bombs in major urban centers.

"The day they blow us up," he predicted, "the border will be sealed tighter than the Berlin Wall and you'll have armed United States military forces" enforcing immigration laws.

That will be too late.

WTC Movie at Cannes

Fox News
tells us that Oliver Stone's new movie World Trade Center
(click for trailer) has been previewed at the Cannes Film Festival. 26 minutes of the film was availble to be sampled at Cannes.

But first, "World Trade Center," which stars Nicolas Cage, Maria Bello, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena. The men play, respectively real life New York Port Authority cops John McLoughlin and Will Jimeno who rushed into the twin tower and nearly wound up being buried alive in the rubble.

""Unlike "United 93," this film has, if not a happy ending, an upbeat one. The two men lived to tell their tale and be reunited with their families. But their stories of survival are used by Stone so he can also convey the brutality and loss of that horrible day. Stone shows, for example, the two towers imploding and collapsing from within. It's an unimaginable horror.

From what we saw, "World Trade Center" looks like it will be a very moving, effective piece about Sept. 11. Five years after the tragedies, it is time to start seeing films and hearing music about the catastrophe, as long as they're done with wisdom and judiciousness. All signs point to Stone not delivering his usual conspiracy theories, but depicting the lives of two families on the verge of disaster.""

This is good news, I must admit I was a bit worried that Stone would turn this into a propoganda piece, but fromwhat I've seen and read so far,it looks to be a promising film.

The Google Team

These are the same useful idiots that help the Chinese government restrict information. Words like democracy and freedom are strictly verboten. I highly reccomend you visit the links above to see how harmless they truley are and how our freedoms are being slowly eroded by multi-national dhimmi's.

We urge you to use the email address in the above response from Google News or call and fax them at (650) 253-0000 - fax: (650) 253-0001 to demand that they cease their politically correct censorship of The New Media Journal.

Armed Forces Day

Angel, of Woman Honor Thyself fame, reminds us that today is Armed Forces Day. She also has a weekend trackback party, bring your own post. Stop the ACLU also has open trackback weekend and a trailer for the new 9/11 movie, World Trade Center.
The film is directed by Oliver Stone and tells the tale of two police officers, John McLoughlin (played by Nicolas Cage and Will Jimeno (played by Micheal Pena), the last two surviving rescue workers pulled from the remains of the World Trade Center after the September 11, 2001 attacks. As you may remember, Stone is the same director who brought us the consiracy paranoia of JFK, can he trusted with this delicate subject?

Rockin’ the Right

JOHN J. MILLER of National Review

So here are NR’s top 50 conservative rock songs of all time. Go ahead and quibble with the rankings, complain about what we put on, and send us outraged letters and e-mails about what we left off. In the end, though, we hope you’ll admit that it’s a pretty cool playlist for your iPod.

1. “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” by The Who.
The conservative movement is full of disillusioned revolutionaries; this could be their theme song, an oath that swears off naпve idealism once and for all. “There’s nothing in the streets / Looks any different to me / And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye. . . . Meet the new boss / Same as the old boss.” The instantly recognizable synthesizer intro, Pete Townshend’s ringing guitar, Keith Moon’s pounding drums, and Roger Daltrey’s wailing vocals make this one of the most explosive rock anthems ever recorded — the best number by a big band, and a classic for conservatives.

2. “Taxman,” by The Beatles.
A George Harrison masterpiece with a famous guitar riff (which was actually played by Paul McCartney): “If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street / If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat / If you get too cold, I’ll tax the heat / If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.” The song closes with a humorous jab at death taxes: “Now my advice for those who die / Declare the pennies on your eyes.”

3. “Sympathy for the Devil,” by The Rolling Stones.
Don’t be misled by the title; this song is The Screwtape Letters of rock. The devil is a tempter who leans hard on moral relativism — he will try to make you think that “every cop is a criminal / And all the sinners saints.” What’s more, he is the sinister inspiration for the cruelties of Bolshevism: “I stuck around St. Petersburg / When I saw it was a time for a change / Killed the czar and his ministers / Anastasia screamed in vain.”

4. “Sweet Home Alabama,” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
A tribute to the region of America that liberals love to loathe, taking a shot at Neil Young’s Canadian arrogance along the way: “A Southern man don’t need him around anyhow.”

5. “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” by The Beach Boys.
Pro-abstinence and pro-marriage: “Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true / Baby then there wouldn’t be a single thing we couldn’t do / We could be married / And then we’d be happy.”

6. “Gloria,” by U2.
Just because a rock song is about faith doesn’t mean that it’s conservative. But what about a rock song that’s about faith and whose chorus is in Latin? That’s beautifully reactionary: “Gloria / In te domine / Gloria / Exultate.”

7. “Revolution,” by The Beatles.
“You say you want a revolution / Well you know / We all want to change the world . . . Don’t you know you can count me out?” What’s more, Communism isn’t even cool: “If you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao / You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow.” (Someone tell the Che Guevara crowd.)

8. “Bodies,” by The Sex Pistols.
Violent and vulgar, but also a searing anti-abortion anthem by the quintessential punk band: “It’s not an animal / It’s an abortion.”

9. “Don’t Tread on Me,” by Metallica.
A head-banging tribute to the doctrine of peace through strength, written in response to the first Gulf War: “So be it / Threaten no more / To secure peace is to prepare for war.”

10. “20th Century Man,” by The Kinks.
“You keep all your smart modern writers / Give me William Shakespeare / You keep all your smart modern painters / I’ll take Rembrandt, Titian, da Vinci, and Gainsborough. . . . I was born in a welfare state / Ruled by bureaucracy / Controlled by civil servants / And people dressed in grey / Got no privacy got no liberty / ’Cause the 20th-century people / Took it all away from me.”

11. “The Trees,” by Rush.
Before there was Rush Limbaugh, there was Rush, a Canadian band whose lyrics are often libertarian. What happens in a forest when equal rights become equal outcomes? “The trees are all kept equal / By hatchet, axe, and saw.”

12. “Neighborhood Bully,” by Bob Dylan.
A pro-Israel song released in 1983, two years after the bombing of Iraq’s nuclear reactor, this ironic number could be a theme song for the Bush Doctrine: “He destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad / The bombs were meant for him / He was supposed to feel bad / He’s the neighborhood bully.”

13. “My City Was Gone,” by The Pretenders.
Virtually every conservative knows the bass line, which supplies the theme music for Limbaugh’s radio show. But the lyrics also display a Jane Jacobs sensibility against central planning and a conservative’s dissatisfaction with rapid change: “I went back to Ohio / But my pretty countryside / Had been paved down the middle / By a government that had no pride.”

14. “Right Here, Right Now,” by Jesus Jones.
The words are vague, but they’re also about the fall of Communism and the end of the Cold War: “I was alive and I waited for this. . . . Watching the world wake up from history.”

15. “I Fought the Law,” by The Crickets.
The original law-and-order classic, made famous in 1965 by The Bobby Fuller Four and covered by just about everyone since then.

16. “Get Over It,” by The Eagles.
Against the culture of grievance: “The big, bad world doesn’t owe you a thing.” There’s also this nice line: “I’d like to find your inner child and kick its little ass.”

17. “Stay Together for the Kids,” by Blink 182.
A eulogy for family values by an alt-rock band whose members were raised in a generation without enough of them: “So here’s your holiday / Hope you enjoy it this time / You gave it all away. . . . It’s not right.”

18. “Cult of Personality,” by Living Colour.
A hard-rocking critique of state power, whacking Mussolini, Stalin, and even JFK: “I exploit you, still you love me / I tell you one and one makes three / I’m the cult of personality.”

19. “Kicks,” by Paul Revere and the Raiders.
An anti-drug song that is also anti-utopian: “Well, you think you’re gonna find yourself a little piece of paradise / But it ain’t happened yet, so girl you better think twice.”

20. “Rock the Casbah,” by The Clash.
After 9/11, American radio stations were urged not to play this 1982 song, one of the biggest hits by a seminal punk band, because it was seen as too provocative. Meanwhile, British Forces Broadcasting Service (the radio station for British troops serving in Iraq) has said that this is one of its most requested tunes.

21. “Heroes,” by David Bowie.
A Cold War love song about a man and a woman divided by the Berlin Wall. No moral equivalence here: “I can remember / Standing / By the wall / And the guns / Shot above our heads / And we kissed / As though nothing could fall / And the shame / Was on the other side / Oh we can beat them / For ever and ever.”

22. “Red Barchetta,” by Rush.
In a time of “the Motor Law,” presumably legislated by green extremists, the singer describes family reunion and the thrill of driving a fast car — an act that is his “weekly crime.”

23. “Brick,” by Ben Folds Five.
Written from the perspective of a man who takes his young girlfriend to an abortion clinic, this song describes the emotional scars of “reproductive freedom”: “Now she’s feeling more alone / Than she ever has before. . . . As weeks went by / It showed that she was not fine.”

24. “Der Kommissar,” by After the Fire.
On the misery of East German life: “Don’t turn around, uh-oh / Der Kommissar’s in town, uh-oh / He’s got the power / And you’re so weak / And your frustration / Will not let you speak.” Also a hit song for Falco, who wrote it.

25. “The Battle of Evermore,” by Led Zeppelin.
The lyrics are straight out of Robert Plant’s Middle Earth period — there are lines about “ring wraiths” and “magic runes” — but for a song released in 1971, it’s hard to miss the Cold War metaphor: “The tyrant’s face is red.”

26. “Capitalism,” by Oingo Boingo.
“There’s nothing wrong with Capitalism / There’s nothing wrong with free enterprise. . . . You’re just a middle class, socialist brat / From a suburban family and you never really had to work.”

27. “Obvious Song,” by Joe Jackson.
For property rights and economic development, and against liberal hypocrisy: “There was a man in the jungle / Trying to make ends meet / Found himself one day with an axe in his hand / When a voice said ‘Buddy can you spare that tree / We gotta save the world — starting with your land’ / It was a rock ’n’ roll millionaire from the USA / Doing three to the gallon in a big white car / And he sang and he sang ’til he polluted the air / And he blew a lot of smoke from a Cuban cigar.”

28. “Janie’s Got a Gun,” by Aerosmith.
How the right to bear arms can protect women from sexual predators: “What did her daddy do? / It’s Janie’s last I.O.U. / She had to take him down easy / And put a bullet in his brain / She said ’cause nobody believes me / The man was such a sleaze / He ain’t never gonna be the same.”

29. “Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” by Iron Maiden.
A heavy-metal classic inspired by a literary classic. How many other rock songs quote directly from Samuel Taylor Coleridge?

30. “You Can’t Be Too Strong,” by Graham Parker.
Although it’s not explicitly pro-life, this tune describes the horror of abortion with bracing honesty: “Did they tear it out with talons of steel, and give you a shot so that you wouldn’t feel?”

31. “Small Town,” by John Mellencamp.
A Burkean rocker: “No, I cannot forget where it is that I come from / I cannot forget the people who love me.”

32. “Keep Your Hands to Yourself,” by The Georgia Satellites.
An outstanding vocal performance, with lyrics that affirm old-time sexual mores: “She said no huggy, no kissy until I get a wedding vow.”

33. “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” by The Rolling Stones.
You can “[go] down to the demonstration” and vent your frustration, but you must understand that there’s no such thing as a perfect society — there are merely decent and free ones.

34. “Godzilla,” by Blue цyster Cult.
A 1977 classic about a big green monster — and more: “History shows again and again / How nature points up the folly of men.”

35. “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Written as an anti–Vietnam War song, this tune nevertheless is pessimistic about activism and takes a dim view of both Communism and liberalism: “Five-year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains . . .”

36. “Government Cheese,” by The Rainmakers.
A protest song against the welfare state by a Kansas City band that deserved more success than it got. The first line: “Give a man a free house and he’ll bust out the windows.”

37. “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” by The Band.
Despite its sins, the American South always has been about more than racism — this song captures its pride and tradition.

38. “I Can’t Drive 55,” by Sammy Hagar.
A rocker’s objection to the nanny state. (See also Hagar’s pro-America song “VOA.”)

39. “Property Line,” by The Marshall Tucker Band.
The secret to happiness, according to these southern-rock heavyweights, is life, liberty, and property: “Well my idea of a good time / Is walkin’ my property line / And knowin’ the mud on my boots is mine.”

40. “Wake Up Little Susie,” by The Everly Brothers.
A smash hit in 1957, back when high-school social pressures were rather different from what they have become: “We fell asleep, our goose is cooked, our reputation is shot.”

41. “The Icicle Melts,” by The Cranberries.
A pro-life tune sung by Irish warbler Dolores O’Riordan: “I don’t know what’s happening to people today / When a child, he was taken away . . . ’Cause nine months is too long.”

42. “Everybody’s a Victim,” by The Proclaimers.
Best known for their smash hit “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles),” this Scottish band also recorded a catchy song about the problem of suspending moral judgment: “It doesn’t matter what I do / You have to say it’s all right . . . Everybody’s a victim / We’re becoming like the USA.”

43. “Wonderful,” by Everclear.
A child’s take on divorce: “I don’t wanna hear you say / That I will understand someday / No, no, no, no / I don’t wanna hear you say / You both have grown in a different way / No, no, no, no / I don’t wanna meet your friends / And I don’t wanna start over again / I just want my life to be the same / Just like it used to be.”

44. “Two Sisters,” by The Kinks.
Why the “drudgery of being wed” is more rewarding than bohemian life.

45. “Taxman, Mr. Thief,” by Cheap Trick.
An anti-tax protest song: “You work hard, you went hungry / Now the taxman is out to get you. . . . He hates you, he loves money.”

46. “Wind of Change,” by The Scorpions.
A German hard-rock group’s optimistic power ballad about the end of the Cold War and national reunification: “The world is closing in / Did you ever think / That we could be so close, like brothers / The future’s in the air / I can feel it everywhere / Blowing with the wind of change.”

47. “One,” by Creed. Against racial preferences: “Society blind by color / Why hold down one to raise another / Discrimination now on both sides / Seeds of hate blossom further.”

48. “Why Don’t You Get a Job,” by The Offspring.
The lyrics aren’t exactly Shakespearean, but they’re refreshingly blunt and they capture a motive force behind welfare reform.

49. “Abortion,” by Kid Rock.
A plaintive song sung by a man who confronts his unborn child’s abortion: “I know your brothers and your sister and your mother too / Man I wish you could see them too.”

50. “Stand By Your Man,” by Tammy Wynette.
Hillary trashed it — isn’t that enough? If you’re worried that Wynette’s original is too country, then check out the cover version by Motцrhead.

It's amazing, this is a great list, out of the 50 songs there are only 7 I haven't heard. My faves are, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10,11,13,15,20,25,32,33,35,37,44&50.
Anyone out there have a song to add to the list?
