Beck and Sharpton Enter the No Spin Zone

 



The left is doing their darnedest to discredit the Restoring Honor rally. I've seen what the left wing have been saying about the event. So last night I watched it on C-SPAN. It was a beautiful event. I would suggest everyone watch some of that event to get a understanding of what it was about. I can see why the left  are so afraid of this event. Any time the Bible is quoted the left froth at the mouth as they become unhinged like the minion they are. The event destroyed the left wing agenda of separation of the races. They spoke of the one race, the human race just like Dr. King did. They spoke about our countries history with God. They had the largest group of religious leaders ever to form at the National Mall. All colors all religions were arm in arm. The only group that was not recognized there were the anti-God, but they only make up 6% of American populous.

Must-Watch: Gibbs Flip-Flops on Surge

 




On "Fox & Friends" this morning, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was interviewed by host Gretchen Carlson and claimed Barack Obama had said all along that the surge would improve the security situation on the ground:

GRETCHEN CARLSON, CO-HOST, "FOX & FRIENDS": Will President Obama recognize the success of the surge put in place by President Bush tonight?

ROBERT GIBBS, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: There's no doubt that first and foremost, that the men and women in our uniform and the sacrifices that I think we are all in awe of -- the president will log today at Fort Bliss when he stops there as well as in his speech -- I don't think there's any doubt, as candidate Obama said, adding 20,000 men and women into Iraq would improve the security situation. I think along with a series of other things…

CARLSON: Candidate Obama said that?

GIBBS: He did.

CARLSON: Excuse me, back in 2007, he said he was against the surge.

GIBBS: No, he said he was against the surge. He said there was no doubt that adding 20,000 men and women would improve the security situation, but as we know, our efforts in Iraq weren't going to be done simple militarily, Gretchen.

Robert Gibbs is misstating the facts here. On January 10, 2007, Obama predicted the surge would actually increase violence.




OBAMA: I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence there. In fact, I think it will do the reverse. I think it takes pressure off the Iraqis to try to arrive at the political accommodation that every observer believes is the ultimate solution to the problems we face there. So I am going to actively oppose the president’s proposal. I don't doubt his sincerity when he says he thinks this is the best approach, but I think he is wrong. And I think the American people believe he is wrong. (NBC News)

In fact, a simple online search shows Senator Barack Obama repeatedly predicted additional troops in Iraq would not improve the security situation in Iraq. Do you think he’ll thank former President Bush tonight?

Now Even More Americans Will Think Obama's A Muslim

Now it looks like everyone that shops will see this "Obama Is A Muslim!"  It's time President Obama come out and denounce his past with Islam or tell us he is Muslim. I'm sure this Globe magazine will sell out. But just think of all the people that will look at that cover when they are grocery shopping. It's the same kind of tactic the left uses all the time to smear their opposition. It almost seems like their "chickens have come home to roost". I find it hard to be too upset with this when Obama is only reaping what he has sown so often,lies and deciet.

Beck Crowd Leaves Mall Clean; Obama Crowd Not So Much

 





The left in our nation is always depicted by media sycophants as concerned with the environment. By contrast, these same people always paint a picture of the right being exclusively focused on profits with total disregard for nature and ecology. What do these two videos say about this "conventional wisdom," and will Obama-loving media members in the post-rally coverage of this event point out to readers and viewers just how clean our National Mall was left by these awful, greedy, right-wing extremists? This has been documented at every left wing vs right wing rally. The left are like locus of distruction. If you want to see what liberalism does long term then just look at liberal cities like Detroit. I'd like to hear why the liberals think there is such a drastic difference between the left wing distruction after their rallies? Now we must not forget all the distruction all those left wing riots have done over the years. One group is civilized and the other is just animals.

Sarah Palin Speach At The Restoring Honor Rally

Exclusive From Fox News: Beck Reflects on 'Restoring Honor' Rally

 



Radio and TV host Glenn Beck said Sunday he doesn't want to retract his controversial charge last year that President Obama is racist, but does want to amend it since reading more about "liberation theology."

"I have a big fat mouth sometimes and I say things, and that's not the way people should behave," Beck said, adding that he regrets saying a year ago that Obama has a "deep-seated hatred for white people" because it's not accurate.

"I didn't understand, really, his theology," Beck a Fox News host, told "Fox News Sunday." "I think that it is much more of a theological question that he is a guy who understands the world through liberation theology, which is oppressor and victim."

Beck described liberation theology, which teaches that salvation for the individual is dependent on salvation for the collective through economic and social justice, as the message that was preached by Obama's ex-pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

"I'm not judging (Obama) for that," he said. "I'm not demonizing it. I disagree with it."

Beck, who is Mormon, said most Christians don't believe in liberation theology.

"That is a direct opposite of what the gospel is talking about," said Beck."It's Marxism disguised as religion."

Beck spoke after hosting his "Restoring Honor" rally in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, which attracted hundreds of thousands of Americans. Beck said the event, meant to honor the U.S. military, was not supposed to be political, and for the most part, politics were left out of the conversation.

"The message I was trying to send was be your highest self and stand in the burning bush, stand in the fire, because that's the only thing that's going to save us," he said. "I've come to the place where I believe there's no way to solve these problems, these issues ... unless we solve it through God, unless we solve it through being our highest self, and that's a pretty tall order."

But Beck said the message of the event was that Americans should reclaim the nation from politics.

Beck added that he never intended the event, scheduled on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, which was also held at the Lincoln Memorial, to be about civil rights.

But many of his critics claimed he was trying to usurp the civil rights message by holding the rally on Aug. 28. A counter-rally to commemorate the speech, organized by Rev. Al Sharpton, also attracted thousands to the nation's capital on Saturday.

Beck, 46, noted that he wasn't alive yet when King delivered his speech or the civil rights movement was in full swing, and he grew up in the Pacific Northwest, which wasn't a hotbed of civic activism during his youth.

But he said he believes that people of faith are proponents of "equal justice," the broad message of the civil rights movement. He also said he thinks it's a "good thing" if he has done damage to "racial politics" as some of his critics claimed.



"Race should not be in politics. Race is a negative that is a heart condition honestly," he said."The real agenda should be equal justice.

"People of faith ... believe that you have an equal right to justice, that is the essence, and if it is not the essence, than we've been sold a pack of lies."

Beck, who described himself as a "hard-living, hard-drinking," ignoramus until he decided to clean up his life 15 years ago, brushed off suggestions that he should run for president. He said he has "zero desire" to hold the office and warned against using popularity as a measurement of the right candidate for the job.

"If that's the case, then we should either elect Billy Graham or Paul McCartney," he said, adding, "We should be looking for people with ideas. The country is in trouble and I don't see a political solution. I think both parties have sold their souls."

Beck noted that the Founding Fathers warned that if people turned from God, the country would be at risk.

The Restoring Honor Rally Is Driving The Left Nuts

This weekend is going to be a busy weekend in Washington DC. Glenn Beck is paying for a non-partisan,multi-religion Restoring Honor rally. It's not a civil rights rally like I keep hearing on the left wing media. The MSM is giving Beck and the rally more air time then they could ever ask for. They seem to have a real problem with Americans trying to restore honor in this country. This is a religious event held for all religions to come together in a "out of many,one" philosophy. The only ones left out are the 6% of Americans that don't believe in God. But the way the MSM is acting is just goofy. Why do they have a problem with restoring honor? What is the big deal about Americans coming together in the name of God? And when will the left realize that this isn't about Glenn Beck? I wish I could have gone. Even more now that I see how unhinged Olbermann and Madow are getting over this rally. I'm praying for the safety of these great Americans as the New Black Panther Party has made a point of disrupting this event. Al Sharpton is also protesting this event. But Al Sharpton is protesting the event because he wrongfully thinks the event is a civil rights event. Just because it's on the same day as MLK Jr. great civil rights speech doesn't mean that is what Beck is trying to do. But that never stop the left in the past from making things up about events and groups of people. I'm sure we will hear the left wing talking points,"racist","anti-American","Christians"...

Ed Schultz From The Ed Show Had a Mental Meltdown Again

It appears that “Mr. Ed” totally lost it yesterday, threatening to burn down the NBC headquarters building and then breaking down in tears. Is this what we are to start expecting from the left as they wake up to the fact that everything they believed in turns out to be an epic failure. And poor clueless Joe Biden thinks the economy is on the right track. I just hope that Ed doesn't kill anyone. It sure does sound like he is capable of it.
edmsnbc1.jpg picture by bc3bMSNBC talk show screamer Ed Schultz had a meltdown in the network’s 30 Rock newsroom, shouting at staff, “I’m going to torch this [bleep]ing place.”
The hot-tempered anchor of “The Ed Show” lost it during a phone call in the packed studio and slammed down the phone before exploding.
As astonished MSNBC staff members fell silent, Schultz glared around the room and yelled, “[Bleep]ers!”
A witness told us, “Ed was furious the network was running election-night promos and he wasn’t in them. He’d been arguing on the phone with marketing, then he slammed down the phone and exploded. It was like Mel Gibson had entered the newsroom.”
A second MSNBC source said, “Ed never gets any attention and love, and he finally snapped.”
Fuming Schultz was immediately dragged in for a meeting with NBC News President Steve Capus and MSNBC President Phil Griffinfollowing his Aug. 12 meltdown.
Our source added, “Schultz was told: ‘If you do that again, you are fired.’ He broke down crying.”
Sources say the hothead was pushed over the edge by MSNBC’s catering to bullying fellow anchor Keith Olbermann and its focus on golden girl Rachel Maddow.

Joe Biden Said We Are On The Right Track With The Economy

The economy is on the right track according to Joe Biden and the Obama admin. This is great news for all those Americans and illegal immigrants suffering from this recession. The MSM is as happy as a pig in shit now that they can tell the world that this admin. Progressive agenda worked to fix the economy. I'm sure that Biden isn't giving us a bag full of BS and telling us it's candy. So I'm just wondering what makes them think we are on the right track? Is it the stock market falling or doing nothing? Is it the housing sales falling an "unexpected" 12.3% in July or the fact that there was another "unexpected" rise in new unemployment clames? Could it be that the true unemployment numbers are over 16% now? Maybe it's the "unexpected" jump in forclosers and bankruptcies? It looks like comercial real estates bubble is about to burst so that's not it. Maybe it's the fact that we added $165 billion to our national debt in July alone? At least we don't have to worry about any states going bankrupt any time soon, do we?                                                                        It makes me wonder what track this admin. is on. Because it isn't the track to recovery as we know it. No one is stupid enough to think that we are on the right track to recovery unless that track is to throw out the old system so they can put in their new "fundamentally changed" system. We can call this "right track" Cloward-Pivens track. What elose could it be? Either they are bold face lieing to us or they think we are on the right track to destroying the old economy so they can put in their new economy. What do you think?

WH Terror Chief Storms Out of Editorial Meeting

 


The Washington Times: White House counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan joined President Barack Obama and the rest of the First Family in Martha’s Vineyard, while the President and his family vacationed. As I wrote in my Friday post on Mr. Brennan, he described the release of Pan Am Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, who was expected to die of terminal cancer three month after his release last year by Scottish authorities, as "unfortunate, inappropriate and wrong.” Overseas press, however, reported in August, that the White House had supported the release of Megrahi. Mr. Brennan had visited the Washington Times Editorial Board on June 24 as a result of a June 11 Washington Times editorial he objected to. It did not take long for the White House counter-terrorism adviser to lose his temper with our editorial board’s questions regarding what he previously said about individuals who become terrorists. Mr. Brennan cut the meeting short and stormed out of our offices thereafter following a question posed by senior editorial writer Jim Robbins (transcript and video below). Referring to a quote Mr. Brennan said in May,  calling jihad a “legitimate tenet of Islam," Mr. Robbins looked to discuss the concept of jihad further with the Obama administration adviser.

WATCH: Mosque Developer Runs Away from Reporter

 

It's not looking good for the ground zero Mosque developers. Why is he running away if there is nothing to run from?

Where Is The Separation Of Mosque And State?

 

Associated Press logo smallWASHINGTON - The good will tour of the Middle East by the imam behind the proposed mosque near "Ground Zero" is just part of the U.S. government's outreach to the Muslim world.



This year, the Obama administration will spend nearly $6 million to restore 63 historic and cultural sites, including mosques and minarets, in 55 nations, according to State Department documents.

That includes $76,000 for a 16th century mosque in China, $67,000 for a mosque in Pakistan, $77,000 to restore minarets in Nigeria and Mauritania, and $50,000 for an Islamic Monument in India.

But that's a fraction of the total in the 2010 Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation, which also will fund projects to restore Christian and Buddhist sites as well as museums, forts and palaces.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the U.S. program to restore Islamic and other cultural sites abroad is money well spent.

CNN Says 70% Of Americans Are Racist Nazi's Because Of The Ground Zero Mosque



I'm speechless. "Time reports on moments of bigotry and injustice." Really? 70% of Americans and 63% of New Yorkers are bigots now because they oppose the location of the Mosque? We are now being compared to Nazi sympathizers? I didn't think this controversy could become more surreal, but it just did. This and the ground zero Imam's wife called Americans Islamophobic and haters of Islam. I think these idiots have their stories backwards. Isn't it Islam that hates America and want to kill Americans? It's funny how these "moderates" Muslims sound radical when you actually listen to them. I'm getting sick of these radicals spitting in our face and then telling us we did it. They have held up the building of the St. Nickolas Church that used to be there but give everything they can to put up a Mosque at ground zero. And then they tell us we are Islamophobic. It's time we treat them the way they treat us. I'm sick of them telling us we need to be sensative to them when they are as insencative as they get. Have we forgotten that it isn't us that called for a Jihad?

New Imam Audio: Latest on Ground Zero Mosque

 

The media needs to get off their butts,as well as the government need to look into this man and the Mosque. He isn't as "moderate" as they'd like us to believe. The left wing love their radicals that's for sure.

Obama Still Dogged by Muslim Rumors Clinton Operatives Started,Not Fox News

 

Hard on the heels of the Ground Zero Mosque controversy, significant numbers of Americans think President Obama is a Muslim. The uncomfortable fact for the White House is the more the American people get to know Mr. Obama, the more they think he is a follower of Islam.Rumors of Mr. Obama's purported Muslim identity spread in January of 2007 and were tied to Hillary Rodham Clinton operatives, who denied responsibility. The Obama camp responded that "Barack Obama is not and has never been a Muslim. Obama never prayed in a mosque. He has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim and is a committed Christian who attends [The Rev. Jeremiah Wright's] United Church of Christ." That seemed definitive.But in a February 2008 interview with the New York Times, Mr. Obama said the Adhan, the Muslim call to prayer, is "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset." He then recited it, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent." The opening of the Adhan contains the Shahada, the Muslim profession of faith, proclaiming, "There is no god but God and Muhammad is the prophet of God." Stating this before two Muslims is the traditional requirement for joining the Islamic faith.Adding fuel to the fire is Mr. Obama's family heritage: born of a Muslim father and raised by a Muslim stepfather. Under Shariah law, having a Muslim father makes one a Muslim, though this custom has no legal standing in the United States. The MSM keeps trying to pin this rumor on the right wing when it is clearly Obama's fault with his actions. And it was Clinton's people that started the rumor in the first place. Why is it the more we get to know Obama the more Muslim people think he is? Could it be he is just the most Muslim sympathetic president we have ever had? He was surrounded by Communist and Muslims his whole life and that is starting to come to light with most of his decisions being pro-Muslim,anti-Israel,Pro-socialism and anti-capitalism.

The Socialist Are At The Ground Zero Mosque Protests

Those in favor of the construction said freedom of religion was the main issue in the debate. Who would have thought that the socialist and Obama would be on the same side on yet another issue?

Did You Forget The Moderate Muslims Dancing In The Streets On 9/11? I Didn't

Did the left forget all those moderate Muslims dancing in the streets on 9/11? Why is it that the left want to take out the Islam in terrorist when it has been Islamic terrorists? There are more videos on the net like this if you care to watch them all you will be very busy for a long time. But for some reason the left blame America for the terrorist attack that killed 2,700 Americans. The left blamed the Christians in Dearborn for handing out literature to those that wanted them at the Arab festival. The left thought it was OK for those Christians to get arrested for fee speech and freedom of religion on a public street outside of the festival. But it's not a problem to build a Mosque at ground zero where Muslims all around the world cheered the killing of almost 3,000 Americans. Why is it OK for Muslims to imprison Christians for free speech and religion on public property but it's not inciting anything when a Mosque is built where Americans were killed in the name of Islam? Why is it easier for the Mosque to get OKed by the city when it has taken over 9 years for the Christian Church that used to be there to get built?

What Is Sharia Law?


Sharia (شريعة Šarīʿa; [ʃaˈriːʕa], "way" or "path") is the sacred law of Islam. All Muslims believe Sharia is God's law, but they have differences among themselves as to exactly what it entails.[1] Modernists, traditionalists and fundamentalists all hold different views of Sharia, as do adherents to different schools of Islamic thought and scholarship. Different countries and cultures have varying interpretations of Sharia as well.
Muslims believe all Sharia is derived from two primary sources, the divine revelations set forth in the Qur'an, and the sayings and example set by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad in the Sunnah. Fiqh, or "jurisprudence," interprets and extends the application of Sharia to questions not directly addressed in the primary sources, by including secondary sources. These secondary sources usually include the consensus of the religious scholars embodied in ijma, and analogy from the Qur'an and Sunnah through qiyas. Shia jurists replace qiyas analogy with 'aql, or "reason". Where it enjoys official status, Sharia is applied by Islamic judges, or qadis. The imam has varying responsibilities depending on the interpretation of Sharia. While the term is commonly used to refer to the leader of communal prayers, the imam may also be a scholar, religious leader or political leader. Sharia deals with many topics addressed by secular law, including crime, politics and economics, as well as personal matters such as sexuality, hygiene, diet, prayer, and fasting.
Introduction (or reintroduction) of Sharia is a longstanding goal for Islamist movements in Muslim countries. Some Muslim minorities in Asia (e.g. India) have attained institutional recognition of Sharia to adjudicate their personal and community affairs. In Western countries, where Muslim immigration is more recent, Muslim minorities have introduced Sharia family law, for use in their own disputes, with varying degrees of success (e.g. Britain's Muslim Arbitration Tribunal). Attempts to impose Sharia have been accompanied by controversy,[2][3][4][5] violence,[6][7][8][9][10][11] and even warfare (cf. Second Sudanese Civil War) [12][13][14][15].

Democrats Are The Ones Trying To Destroy Social Security

Posted by Erick Erickson
A headline at CNN back on August 13th proclaimed “Democrats to use Social Security against GOP this fall”.

There is just one problem.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that it is Barack Obama’s own debt commission that intends to destroy social security as we know it.

In addition to raising the retirement age, which is now set to reach age 67 in 2027, specific cuts under consideration include lowering benefits for wealthier retires and trimming annual cost-of-living increases, perhaps only for wealthier retirees, people familiar with the talks said.

On the tax side, the leading idea is to increase the share of earned income that is subject to Social Security taxes, officials said. Under current law, income beyond $106,000 is exempt. Another idea is to increase the tax rate itself, said a Democrat on the commission.

I’m sure this won’t stop the Democrats from demagoguing the issue and the Republicans will be too stupid to leave the Debt Commission or point out it is the President’s Commission doing the destroying, but the facts won’t change.

The Democratic President set up a debt commission and that commission intends to mess with social security. It is not the Republicans.

And here’s the thing: if the Democrats really do attack the GOP and demagogue on social security, the GOP members of the commission should quit. It’s that simple. They won’t though. Judd Gregg wants to leave the Senate having arrived at a lame duck bipartisan compromise to screw the country so he can be proclaimed “great” by the fringe we call the political class.

Birther Theory Is Going Main Stream

The Presidential Poser
August 23, 2010 by Bob Livingston

Just who exactly is this man posing as President of the United States? That’s a question being asked by a growing number of Americans.

In fact, a recent poll by CNN — a news organization that has been downright gushing in its praise of Barack Obama — showed that six out of 10 people are uncertain the President was even born in the U.S. And that includes about one-third of all Democrats.

It’s troubling that so many question Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of President but that so few of the elected class and those of national prominence will even broach the issue. It demonstrates what a superb job Obama’s team and the Democrat party have done in casting those who question his status as a natural born citizen as the lunatic fringe.

In fact, if you are a “birther” — a term coined by the mainstream press to disparage those who doubt Obama’s eligibility to hold office based on his citizenship — even so-called conservative icons like Ann Coulter and Glenn Beck consider you a nut.

All this proves is that the elitists who shape messages are a clique interested not in seeing that the U.S. Constitution is upheld, but in maintaining their power and protecting their own. This was demonstrated once before, when the House of Representatives voted to impeach Bill Clinton for lying to a grand jury, but the Senate voted 100-0 not to remove him.

When was the last time the Senate was unanimous on anything? Democrats and Republicans never agree unanimously. The fix was in from the beginning.

So, too, is the issue of Obama’s citizenship and eligibility. The fix is in, even though the evidence that he is not a natural-born citizen, and therefore ineligible to hold the office, far exceeds evidence that he is.

The Republican governor in Hawaii says a birth certificate exists but she has sealed access to it, thereby eliminating one avenue of determining whether he was born in Hawaii, as he says, or in Kenya, as Michelle Obama, several of Obama’s Kenyan relatives (his paternal grandmother, half sister and half brother) and a couple of Kenyan officials have said. And for you Obama sycophants, don’t even bring up the certificate of live birth (COLB) posted online as proof. The COLB was available to anyone. It is not a legal document, does not list the attending physician, does not include his fingerprints or footprints, could not have been used to obtain his passport and is only a diversion to a weak-minded press and public.

Earlier this year a senior Honolulu elections clerk went on local television and said that it was common knowledge among election officials that no official birth certificate — he called it the long-form birth record — exits in Hawaii, despite what Governor Linda Lingle has said.

The whole situation remains a muddle, just as Obama and his handlers want it. Documents disappear. Other documents crop up — some that cast more doubt on his story and some that seem at first glance to support his claims but simply serve to send the discussion on a tangent. And Obama fights disclosure at every turn, sending agents from the U.S. Justice Department out to block all efforts at obtaining his records.

Thankfully, one news organization is doggedly pursuing the story. Joseph Farah and his reporters at WorldNetDaily (WND) hammer on the Obama eligibility story relentlessly, slowly chipping away at the facade. Some other conservative, fearless publications and websites are also digging for the truth and opining on the eligibility question.

Yet despite a total blackout from the main stream media on the subject of Obama’s citizenship, 60 percent of the American public still doubt Obama’s story that he was born in Hawaii. As Farah says, that means the birthers are winning.

There are some things we do know — or can surmise — about Obama, thanks to WND, some other publications and Obama’s own book, Dreams From My Father.

The man who would ascend to the Presidency in 2009 was born to Ann Dunham on Aug. 4, 1961. The father is purported to be Barack Hussein Obama, a Kenyan student in Hawaii who married Dunham on Feb. 2, 1961.

Some have speculated that Barack Obama II’s (this is how Obama’s name is listed on the COLB) biological father was actually Frank Marshall Davis, a black friend of Ann Dunham’s parents and the man the young Obama would later claim in his autobiography was his mentor. The speculation about Davis — a radical communist — as possibly Obama’s biological father stems from a book Davis wrote under a pseudonym in which he describes having sex with an under aged white girl. The idea is plausible, as Davis was a good friend of Madelyn and Stanley Dunham, Ann Dunham’s parents.

The irony is that this is one nativity story that would cement Obama’s claim to be a natural-born citizen. If Obama Sr., a Kenyan citizen, is Obama’s father, Obama is not a Constitutionally described natural-born citizen because one parent is a non-citizen and the other was a minor and therefore unable to bestow citizenship on the child — if Obama was born in Kenya, as many believe.

As lawsuits have claimed, there is no evidence — beyond the afore-mentioned COLB — that Obama was born in Hawaii. Both Obama and a half sister have named two different Hawaii hospitals as his birth place, no records exist that Dunham was hospitalized in Hawaii and no physician or nurse has stepped forward to claim they assisted with the birth.

Obama’s supporters have pointed out that newspaper articles published in August 1961 in the Honolulu Advertiser and the Honolulu Star-Bulletin prove Obama was born in Hawaii. The address listed was the address of Madelyn and Stanley Dunham, Ann Dunham’s parents. WND has reported that official documents show Obama Sr., had a residence at another address at the same time. And neighbors of the Dunhams told WND they don’t recall a white woman with a black baby ever living next door. College transcripts indicate Dunham moved with her new baby to Seattle within days of Obama’s birth and enrolled in the University of Washington for classes that began on Aug. 19, 1961.

These birth announcements prove only that someone submitted information to two newspapers to herald the birth of a baby. They document the timeframe of the birth, not the location. The baby could have been born on Mars and these announcements could have still run in the newspapers.

Another problem Obama faces is found in his mother’s trip to Indonesia with her second husband, Lolo Soetoro, in the late 1960s. WND has reported that several lawsuits challenging Obama’s eligibility hinge on this time in Indonesia, which does not allow dual citizenship. Documents released by the U.S. State Department under two Freedom of Information Act requests indicate he may have given up his citizenship when he moved there.

Those documents show that Obama’s mother sought to have “Barack Obama II (Seobarkah)” removed from her passport, possibly as a prelude to obtaining Indonesian citizenship for him. If she did this it was more than likely for the child’s safety, as it was a turbulent time in Indonesia and there was a strong anti-American sentiment there.

While in Indonesia Obama was enrolled in school under the name of Barry Soetoro, as proven by school records photographed by an Associated Press photographer in 2007. Those school records list Soetoro as an Indonesian citizen, born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Aug. 4, 1961, and records his religion as Muslim.

According to WND, Obama was either 5 or 6 years old when he traveled to Indonesia. This is important because if Lolo Soetoro adopted him at age 5 then he would have automatically become an Indonesian citizen. The law differed for children aged 6 and up and an adoption for a 6-year-old would have had to take place through legal channels.

Another puzzle uncovered by WND revolves around a photograph of Obama — or Soetoro, whoever he is — with another child at a school in Hawaii at the same time he was enrolled in school in Indonesia. The photo is marked has having been taken in 1969, and there is no good explanation as to how he was attending school in two different places at the same time.

The Obama camp has also refused to explain why Obama/Soetoro is using a Social Security number issued in Connecticut. WND has reported that two private investigators discovered the Social Security number anomaly and filed documents in an eligibility lawsuit showing the number was issued in Connecticut between 1977 and 1979, yet Obama’s/Soetoro’s earliest reported employment was at a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop in Hawaii in 1975.

The Social Security website confirms that the first three numbers of Obama’s/Soetoro’s Social Security number are reserved for applicants with Connecticut addresses. That Social Security number corresponds with Obama’s/Soetoro’s Selective Service registration, according to WND.

Finally, questions surround a trip Obama/Soetoro has admitted he took to Pakistan in 1981, WND reports.

“I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college — I knew what Sunni and Shia was [sic] before I joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee,” Obama/Soetoro reportedly stated at a fundraising event.

Pakistan in 1981 was under military rule. It was difficult for U.S. citizens to travel to the country without assistance. It would have been easier for someone to enter Pakistan on an Indonesian passport, WND reports.

Obama/Soetoro could easily clear up the confusion by releasing his birth records, his school records, college records and other official documents. Instead, he is spending millions of dollars to fight all attempts to obtain documents that most public officials release by habit. That begs the question: What is he hiding?

Some brave souls are fighting the good fight in trying to get to the bottom of the mysterious background of the 44th President. Some military people are putting their careers on the line in an attempt to get proof that any orders Obama/Soetoro issues are legitimate.

However, the court system seems hell-bent on covering up any efforts at discovery. It consistently throws out lawsuits on standing and is frequently hostile to plaintiffs. Several judges have threatened lawyers and plaintiffs with stiff fines if they continue to pursue the matter.

Meanwhile, the only logical conclusion is that Obama/Soetoro is not Constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President. Any other view is only based on hope — Obama’s/Soetoro’s favorite theme.

A Constitutional crisis is in the offing and when the truth finally gets out about Obama’s/Soetoro’s citizenship, the legitimacy of orders signed by an illegitimate President will be called into question. Expect mass chaos to ensue.

That very well could be the culmination of the whole plan by Obama/Soetoro and those pulling his strings.

Is Obama A Christian,Muslim Or Nothing At All?

The White House is trying to curtail the upsurge of Americans,Republican,Democrat and Muslim that think Obama is a Muslim or they just don't know what religion he is. The White House is trying to place the blame everywhere except on themselves. By listening to the MSM it sounds like this really bothers the White House. And It seems the White House is doing everything it can to make Obama seem like a Christian. I could care less what religion he is. I think he is a Black Liberation Theologin if anything at all. But when I see the White House protesting this much over his faith I think,"thou dust protest too much". If Obama isn't a Muslim then all he needs to do is denounce his old belief in Islam. Until he does that people will think he is a Muslim. He even said in the one interview,"my Muslim faith" and then he was corrected. I don't know too many Christians that would make that mistake. But if he says he's a Christian then he's a Christian. The more they protest his "Muslim faith" the more people will think he's a Muslim.It also doesn't help that most Muslims and Muslim leaders think Obama is a Muslim. And it's hard to see anything that he does that would point to him being a Christian.

Who Is The Extreme?



The Democratic Party has become too extreme. We need to get back to our founding principles of small government. And the only way we can do that is to get rid of these extremists in our government.

Don't They Care About The People That Lost So Much On 9/11 In The Name Of Islam?


9/11 Families Criticize Ground Zero Mosque Plan

De
an Breaks with Obama on Mosque

How can these Muslims be so heartless to do this to these poor people? Now when they go down to their family members grave, they will hear the call of prayer as a reminder of what religions name it was done in. They will hear the call of prayer and "Alahu Akbar" the same words those Islamic terrorist used. Even Dean has enough sense to know right from wrong. And all those left wingers that tried to make this about the Constitution need help. Why is it that the left wing nutcases always side with our enemies or against the American people? Isn't it time you liberals start working towards the betterment of America, instead of the destruction of it? And what Pelosi said was just plan crazy. Don't forget to call her office and tell her what you think of her last statement about intimidating the ground zero families that are against this Mosque.

Half Million More Jobs Lost

We have lost another half million jobs this month. This recession is not getting better like the Democrats promised. We paid a lot of money to end this recession and we are hemorrhaging jobs every month since the Stimulus and other jobs bills. We have yet to see a month were we have gained jobs. Even the worse recessions end at some point in time,usually in less then 18 months. When the Democrats let the tax cuts expire and we are all paying more in taxes do you think that will help or hurt the jobs market? If you think it will help then you need help. But what do you expect the employers to do when they are faced with the most anti-business and anti-employment administration in our lifetime? This admin. has made it hard for those "rich fat cat" employers to keep doing business in this country. And since this admin has taken office they have made everything but main street employment their focus. This admin has given added costs in health insurance that is being trickled down to the employee or consumer. But the left keep blaming Bush and the Republican Party even though Bush has been gone for almost  years now and Congress has been run by the Democratic Party for almost years now. When will enough be enough and when will this admin and the Democratic Party take responsibility for what they are doing to our economy? We told the left that this would happen. The left told us they would make things better. Who do you believe now? But the Democrats will offer more unemployment benefits to the unemployed while the Republican will offer a change in coarse so that the private sector can start to create jobs again without fear of reprisal from the government. At some point in time the unemployed will realize their is no such thing as free money for their vote. If you want a job then you need to vote against everyone that is in office now. Because that is the only way we will get the change we need to create jobs in this country again.

No Arms,No Legs,No Worries

I want you to think what kind of ideology made this man so great. Do you think he was told he couldn't do something because of what he looked liked? Do you think he let someone else do for him or did he do for himself? We are all individuals and we need to look at people as individuals not groups. He is not handicap in my eyes and that is great. How many people give up because of where they were born or what sex they are or because of the color of their skin? Who is feeding that kind of mentality to these individuals? Could it be that we are making people handicap when they aren't just by giving them the "poor you" handouts?  We have to stop telling people they can and start pushing people to succeed or fail trying. How many times do we make excuses for our kids? They have ADHD or they had sugar or whatever the obstacle may be we can make it worse or better. I'm sure this man seen some tough love in his life. And that is why he is the way he is. Reflect on this man and what he has done. And then remember him the next time you "poor you" to a person with an infliction. Look in the mirror and see that you can do so much more if you just stop holding yourself back. God blessed this man with what we call an infliction.

I Told You They Would Go Nuts: Pelosi On Ground Zero Mosque

Are you kidding me Pelosi? As more things come to light we are seeing how bat shit nuts these liberals are becoming. Has this women no shame? 70% of Americans disagree with the building of this Mosque so close to ground zero and yet Pelosi thinks the opposition to this Mosque being built there needs to be investigated? This statement better be clarified and Pelosi needs to say sorry for offending the families of those NY and the 70% of Americans she offended. But I'm sure the Main Stream Media will be on her side on this issue. But we are seeing into the heart of what the Democratic Party and Progressives have become. They are heartless and insensitive to anything outside their own wants.  We need to purge our government of all leaders like this POS Pelosi and Barack H. Obama whether they are Democrats or Republicans. We need to find representatives that reflect our image of America not theirs. We need to find representatives that represent our needs not theirs. If you are a liberals do you agree with Pelosi and why?

WATCH: MSM Unleashes Disgusting Smears Against Mosque Opponents

 










And they wonder why no one watches them. They will never talk about the Church at ground zero not making headway on being rebuilt do too government bureaucracy. Why would they do that,it disproves their theory. Keith Olbortmann is pushing the "Islamophobia" thing right now. Is it a phobia to be afraid of lightning in a thunderstorm on a golf course? Is it a phobia to be afraid of bears on Yellowstone park? That doesn't mean you will get eaten by all bears or hit by every strike of lightning. But that will be their response. We have good reason to be afraid of some Muslims since all the terrorist have been Muslim. For those slow liberals, I didn't say all Muslims are dangerous but we should know what they could be capable of doing. But what reason do they have for their Christian phobia?  Are they just projecting their fear of Christianity on us?    I'd like to see Keith Albertmenn and Racheal Madcow go to a Muslim nation and announce they are gay and then hand out their gay rights tracts and tell me it's just a phobia. There is a reason why people fear Islam. It's a rational fear as we are finding out more on who this Imam is that is putting up this mosque. And unlike the left we still remember the Muslims dancing in the streets all around the world on 9/11.

JetBlue Job-Quitter Inspires Obama Attack Video: Is This an Effective Ad?

 





From Mediaite: Who needs SNL. The RNC, always a reliable source of distracting content online, has just posted this little gem inspired by the world’s favorite job-quitter Steven Slater. This particular ad depicts the rush of Democrats up for election this November off Air Force One to get away from the poll sinker that is President Obama. You guessed it, they use an inflatable slide. Is this a good ad? And if Obama and the Democrats did as a great a job like they keep telling us they've done then why is it no one want to be called a Democrat or have Obama campaigns for them? I think we might be missing the bigger point on why Democrats don't want Obama to campaign for them. The Democrats are RACIST. It can't be because of his failed policy. It's can't be because of the failing of Progressives ideology now can it? It's got to be the inherit racism within the Democratic Party. Now I hope you all know I'm kidding about that. But in reality will the Progressives blame race rather then their failed Progressive ideology? You know they will. The Progressives will do a name change,again. And as a smaller fringe they will blame whites, Christians and Jews like the bigots they have always been. Never once seeing their own flaws, but choosing to blame everyone and everything rather then blaming themselves. Just look at how they blame us because the Church at ground zero isn't built but the Mosque got cart blanch care from the government in NYC. Where is the the first amendment now? I bring these things up because liberalism is becoming a mental disease. And because it's a disease it has symptoms. We will see more and more violence from the left as we start baring down on their failed ideology and force them to see what really is instead of the fringe BS they have been feeding the world. Just like a drug addict at and intervention they will get angry and violent. Some will seek help and others will just go down farther into the rabbit hole. On another note are you ready for Isreal to protect themselves from Iran? Who wants to bet that the left will blame Israel for protecting itself from Iran?

Open Thread On Fixing America The Right Way

Here are a few of the concrete ideas for change:
  • Cap Federal Spending - It is important for Conservatives to come up with a plan to stop the overspending in Washington, D.C. that has lead to a $13.3 trillion national debt.  “Place a firm cap on overall federal spending, and limit future year-to-year growth to inflation plus population growth. Federal spending is on an unsustainable trajectory because we lack a mechanism that forces Congress to live within agreed upon spending limits. A binding cap will force lawmakers to make the tough decisions required to get us back to fiscal sanity.”  There are other great ideas in cutting federal spending and your ideas would be much appreciated.
  • Put Entitlement Programs Under the Budget - According to The Heritage Foundation, “the middle class retirement programs, Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, will cause federal spending to jump by half, from the historical average of twenty percent of the economy to thirty percent by 2033. This tsunami of spending is a major threat to limited government because it runs on auto-pilot with automatic increases locked in by each program’s governing laws. While other programs are constrained through annual budgets, entitlements get the first call on resources.”  Solutions for America urges policy makers to consider “requir(ing) the Big Three entitlement programs— Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security—to live within firm, congressionally approved budgets.  If Congress is ever to control spending, it must end the era of open-ended entitlements. Currently, Big Three spending is on autopilot—increasing automatically year after year. Entitlement spending must be brought into the congressional budgetary process. Lawmakers should establish a five-year budget for these programs and include protective mechanisms, such as triggers, that will automatically keep spending within the congressionally approved limits.”  Do Red Staters have any other ideas on how to reform entitlement programs?
  • Revive Federalism- ObamaCare imposes a federal mandate that all Americans in the 50 states buy health insurance.  This is a clear violation of the idea of federalism.  Solutions for America argues that “the federal government has usurped the states’ traditional role in areas such as transportation, education, health (especially Medicaid), homeland security, and law enforcement. Washington must cede vast swatches of its policymaking authority—and the funding that goes with it—to states willing to reassume leadership in these areas.”  Congress needs to consider ideas that will restore the traditional role of the states.
  • Loan Welfare Money to Able Bodied Recipients - As Robert Rector and Chuck Donovan have written for The Heritage Foundation that Congress needs to take another run at Welfare Reform.  “Why not treat a portion of welfare assistance to able-bodied adults as a loan to be repaid, rather than as a free gift from the taxpayers? Such a policy change would reduce the moral hazard associated with dependency, while providing temporary help to those in need.  Clearly, welfare as we knew it did not end, as so many of us had hoped 14 years ago (the 1996 Welfare Reform Law).  Adjusting for inflation, total welfare spending is nearly twice what it was before 1996.”  Solutions for America argues to “limit the unsustainable growth of welfare spending, and require recipients to give something back.  Aggregate welfare spending now approaches $1 trillion annually and does more harm than good. Congress must treat all 71 means-tested welfare programs holistically, as a discrete category of federal spending, and cap annual year-to-year welfare spending growth at inflation.  This will force Congress to consider new approaches that could actually help the poor surmount poverty. To this end, Congress should require able-bodied adults to treat a portion of certain welfare benefits as loans to be repaid rather than as an open-ended grant from taxpayers.”  Also, Congress should study how many of those 71 means-tested welfare programs are redundant and eliminate the ones that allow for double dipping.  Seem reasonable?
  • Stop Overpaying Federal Workers- Federal employees are overpaid at a time when the private sector is experiencing great pain.  Solutions for America argues, “pay federal workers wages and benefits comparable to what their counterparts earn in the private sector.  Federal employee compensation is far too generous.  Total compensation—hourly wages plus benefits—is 30–40% above that of comparable private sector workers.  By bringing federal compensation in line with market  rates, Congress would save taxpayers approximately $47 billion a year.”  James Sherk of The Heritage Foundation recommends the following: Abolish the General Schedule and implementing market-based performance pay; Expand the contracting out of non-essential tasks to the private sector;  Reduce the generosity of the benefits the federal government provides; and end restrictions on dismissing underperforming federal employees, thus incentivizing increased productivity.  These seem like some common sense solutions to the problem of federal bureacrats making more than the average American in the private sector.
  • Keep Taxes Low - Do not implement a Value Added Tax, a Carbon Tax, nor the Obama Tax Increases of 2011.  Solutions for America suggests that “tax increases, especially those loaded on small-business owners (our most productive and entrepreneurial individuals), are counterproductive at any time.  To raise taxes during a recession is a recipe for crippling economic growth and job creation. Maintaining the tax burden at its current level is the least Congress should do.”  Red Staters must have other suggested taxes to reduce or abolish.
  • Implement a Pro-Growth Strategy- President Obama’s $862 billion monstrosity of a "Stimulus Plan" has lead to a $1 billion earmark for a special project in Illinois and a program to study the effects of Cocaine on Monkeys.  A real strategy to encourage investment and real job creation would be to reduce government interference in the free market.  Solutions for America argues for policies that ”encourage investment and job creation. Reduce the top tax rate on corporate earnings—currently the second highest among all industrial nations—and let businesses immediately deduct investments in new plant and equipment.  These two changes to the tax code will unleash the most productive investment and create the most private sector jobs. Specifically, lawmakers should align the top rate on corporate earnings to those that prevail in our 30 largest trading partners—approximately 25%.”  This is a target rich environment for pro-growth ideas that retreat from the President’s failed economic policies.
  • Stop Taxing Seniors- Why do seniors have to keep paying taxes as they get older?  The federal government should not maintain policies that essentially force older Americans to retire when they still can work.  Here is another solution for America.  “As part of the broader effort to reform entitlement programs, seniors who wish to work beyond retirement age should be freed from the burden of paying Social Security payroll taxes. Employers willing to retain or hire these older workers also should be exempt from paying the employer share of the FICA tax.”  This would be a stimulus program for older Americans and an idea that makes sense.
  • Peace Through Strength - President Ronald Reagan promoted the idea of maintaining a strong military as a means to protect American citizens.  Solutions for America argues that ”a robust military is the surest way to deter aggression and reinforce U.S. diplomacy. To accomplish this, the Pentagon procurement holiday must end. Congress must refurbish our armed forces, especially our depleted Navy fleet and vital missile defenses.”  Congress needs to make sure that our defense infrastructure stays strong in the face of emerging threats from rogue nations and entities.

Hot Video: 'Those Voices Don't Speak for the Rest of Us'

Ground Zero Church Is Left In The Dust,But Not The Mosque

The battle raging over the Ground Zero mosque is bringing new attention to another, less publicized controversy involving a house of worship in Lower Manhattan.St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which once sat right across the street from the World Trade Center, was crushed under the weight of the collapse of Tower Two on September 11, 2001. St. Nicholas was the only church to be lost in the attacks, and nine years later, while City of New York officials are busy removing every impediment to the building of the Cordoba mosque two blocks from the site, St. Nicholas’ future remains unclear.The last bit of hopeful news for St. Nicholas came two years ago, in July 2008, when church officials and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced a deal which would have allowed the church to be rebuilt about two blocks from its original location.The Port Authority agreed to give the church a parcel of land at Liberty and Greenwich Streets, and contribute $20 million toward construction of a new sanctuary. The Port Authority also agreed to build an explosion-proof platform and foundation for the new church building, which would sit on top of a screening area for cars and trucks entering the underground garages at the new World Trade Center.Trouble emerged after St. Nicholas announced its plans to build a traditional Greek Orthodox church building, 24,000 square feet in size, topped with a grand dome. Port Authority officials told the church to cut back the size of the building and the height of the proposed dome, limiting it to rising no higher than the World Trade Center memorial. The deal fell apart for goodin March 2009, when the Port Authority abruptly ended the talks after refusing to allow church officials to review plans for the garage and screening area underneath. Sixteen months later, the two sides have still not met to resume negotiations.St. Nicholas Church’s difficulty in getting approvals to rebuild stands in stark contrast to the treatment that the developers of the proposed Cordoba mosque have received. New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, state Atty. Gen. Andrew Cuomo, and a raft of city officials have all come out publicly in favor of building the mosque, and the city’s Landmarks and Preservation Commission recently voted unanimously to deny protection to the building currently occupying the site where the mosque is to be built.The mosque is proposed to rise 13 stories, far above the height of the World Trade Center memorial, with no height restrictions imposed. So where is the equal treatment of religions? Where is the outrage from the left on this? I had a blogger try and say this ground zero Mosque was just about racism or whites and Christians. What say you leftists now?

Dem Congresswoman Uses Muscle to Silence Constituents

 



One of the most unbelievable things I’ve seen – aside from the beating of Kenneth Gladney and the “tolerant” liberals who supported and promoted his still-denied justice because he was a black conservative. Illinois congresswoman Melissa Bean barked at constituents and whenever anyone tried to stop the locomotive of distraction and get the congresswoman to do her job by answering to her constituents, her muscle, according to video and numerous eyewitnesses, sprang into action and intimidated them into silence. This is why we need lots of videos of these representatives and their purple shirt style thugs. This was a public meeting and filming is aloud at those public events.

Reid Breaks With Obama On Ground Zero Mosque

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid broke with President Obama Monday over the proposed mosque near Ground Zero, saying the controversial Islamic center should be built elsewhere.Spokesman Jim Manley said in a written statement that Republicans should show their sincerity about sensitivity to Sept. 11 survivors by backing a high-profile bill to grant health benefits to rescue workers, something that stalled in Congress earlier this month.But at the same time, Manley put Reid on the record for the first time in the hyper-sensitive and volatile mosque debate."The First Amendment protects freedom of religion," Manley said. "Sen. Reid respects that but thinks that the mosque should be built some place else."Reid's comments added another high-profile voice to the mosque controversy. The president first stepped into the fray Friday when he appeared to endorse the Park 51 project during a Ramadan dinner at the White House. The next day, he clarified that he was merely commenting on fundamental religious freedoms -- not specifically on the "wisdom" of the mosque project. Then White House spokesman Bill Burton said Obama was not "backing off" his original remarks.Well maybe the left can make this about racism since their religious freedom straw man didn't stick. People are fed up with Obama and his insistence to go against the American people on every issue. Have you ever wondered why Obama and the left are always on the side of the terrorist organizations like Hamas?
A Hamas leader says Muslims "have to build" a mosque near ground zero.Mahmoud al-Zahar said Muslims "have to build everywhere" so that followers can pray, just like Christians and Jews build their places of worship.Al-Zahar spoke Sunday on "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" on WABC-AM. He is a co-founder of Hamas and its chief on the Gaza Strip.Sen. Chuck Schumer says Al-Zahar's comments don't carry any weight because Hamas is a terrorist organization. Schumer hasn't taken a stand on the mosque.Rep. Peter King, who opposes the mosque, says he won't respond to Hamas.          We need to pray for these Muslims. We need to show the world what these Muslims intentions are with this mosque. We need to show the faces of the morners at ground zero when they hear the call to pray in Arabic as a reminder of the religion that promoted this kind of terrorism. In time the truth of why this Mosque was built at ground zero will come out. And when it does the world will see this religion for what it is.

It's Elderberry Picking Season In Michigan

clipartI know who cares about elderberries? Well when you are sick in the middle of winter you will wish you had some. I know a lot about plants in Michigan and around the world. I know about their medicinal values and when and how to collect them. So feel fee to ask me anything about this at any time or on any post. I picked elderberries and now I am slow drying them. They should be ready in a few more days. I let them slow dry so they grow some of the yeasts that are good for your stomach. When you get sick just pull the dried berries out and eat a handful every couple of hours till you feel better. You can make a wine,syrup or put the fresh berries in vodka to drink when you feel sick. I like the vodka cure for obvious reasons. I have a 25 year old frankincense bonsai tree that I use some of the sap to fight off viruses in combination with the elderberries. You can find the elderberry bushes on the sides of rural roads. I know I've seen many on I-75 going up to northern Michigan. The berries are dark black and the leaves are a string of 5 leaves on one leaf. Do yourself a favor this year and pick some elderberries. Or do what I do and buy some bushes for your yard. The birds love them and I love the wildlife in my yard. Have fun looking for the berries. But once you've found them you will find them there every year. Good hunting.

Pastor Schools NBC News Host Over Ground Zero Mosque

 
Pauline Jelinek and Julie Pace - Associated Press Writers - 8/15/2010 6:45:00 AMBookmark and Share
PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. - President Barack Obama is under fire for his endorsement of a proposed mosque near the site of the 9-11 Islamic terrorist attack in New York City.


Speaking to a gathering at the White House Friday evening to observe the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Obama said that he believes "Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country."

"That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances," he said. "This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable."

Asked Saturday about the issue during his trip to Florida, Obama tried to reframe his Friday remarks saying "I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making a decision to put a mosque there. I was commenting very specifically on the right that people have that dates back to our founding."

Obama said that "my intention was simply to let people know what I thought. Which was that in this country we treat everybody equally and in accordance with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion.

The White House quickly followed up on Obama's latest comments on the matter, with Obama spokesman Bill Burton saying that the president wasn't backing off in any way from the remarks he made Friday.

"What he said last night, and reaffirmed today, is that if a church, a synagogue or a Hindu temple can be built on a site, you simply cannot deny that right to those who want to build a mosque," Burton said.

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who was among those who met with Obama on Saturday, lauded the president's position. Crist is running for the U.S. Senate as an independent.

"I think he's right - I mean you know we're a country that in my view stands for freedom of religion and respect for others," Crist said after the Florida meeting with Obama and other officials. "I know there are sensitivities and I understand them. This is a place where you're supposed to be able to practice your religion without the government telling you you can't."

Others were quick to pounce on Obama's statements.

In a statement Saturday, House Minority Leader John Boehner said the decision to build the mosque wasn't an issue of religious freedom, but a matter of respect.

"The fact that someone has the right to do something doesn't necessarily make it the right thing to do," Boehner said. "That is the essence of tolerance, peace and understanding."

Added Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y.: "President Obama is wrong. It is insensitive and uncaring for the Muslim community to build a mosque in the shadow of ground zero."

Democratic Senate candidate Jeff Greene of Florida took Obama's Friday speech to mean the president supports the construction.

"President Obama has this all wrong and I strongly oppose his support for building a mosque near ground zero especially since Islamic terrorists have bragged and celebrated destroying the Twin Towers and killing nearly 3,000 Americans," said Greene. "Freedom of religion might provide the right to build the mosque in the shadow of ground zero, but common sense and respect for those who lost their lives and loved ones gives sensible reason to build the mosque someplace else."

The mosque would be part of a $100 million Islamic community center two blocks from where nearly 3,000 people perished when hijacked jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001.

The proposed construction has sparked debate around the country that has included opposition from top Republicans including Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich as well as the Jewish civil rights group the Anti-Defamation League.
This is what I think of this mess this Mosque has put us in. The Muslims and the left want this to be about defending the freedom of religion. This is nothing of the sort. This is about zoning. Just because you are a religion doesn't give you the right to put up a Church or Mosque anywhere you want. Some things are just inappropriate to most Americans. No one is limiting there freedom any more then not being able to have a strip club next to a school isn't against your freedom of speech. I can't scream fire in a crowded theater. This insensitive move by the Muslims is very antagonistic to the rest of the religions in America. If they are trying to promote hate and anger they are doing a great job. But that is what they are trying to do. If a Christian, Jew,Hindu ... hurts that Mosque in any way they will win. We must protest this Mosque by pointing out their intentions and agenda. But we must not ever show anything but Love for them. As more Americans eyes open to what the Muslims are doing with this Mosque their weak foundation will fall on it's own. We should not burn the Qua ran or any other kind of non-Love action. If we can show them Love it will all work out in the end. Please keep vigilant in peace and spread the Word.
