~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Ms. Pelosi:

I write to you out of utter disdain! You are as despicable and un-American as the traitor Jane Fonda.

I am a soon to be 65 year-old who has voted in every state and local election since 1966. I have voted for both Republicans and Democrats alike. I have worked on campaigns for both Republicans and Democrats, white and black. I served the country that I love in Vietnam , as my son did in the Middle East . I was awarded two bronze stars. I have been involved in politics since age 6 when my father was campaign manager for a truly great American Congressman, Charles Raper Jonas, who worked for his constituents and his country, and was to be admired, unlike you.

You obviously havent read the Constitution recently, if ever, the Federalist Papers, or even David McCulloughs book on John Adams. You ought to take the time while riding around in your government provided luxury executive jet to do just that. You represent Socialistic and even Marxist principals that our founding fathers tried to avoid when setting out the capitalistic republican form of government represented by our Constitution.

I find it interesting that you and your husband are multi-millionaires with much of your fortune being made as a result of your public service. You have controlled legislation that has enhanced your husbands investments both on and off shore. At the same time you redistributed the wealth of others. Our system of a free market economy is being destroyed by the likes of you, Harry Reid, and now our President. You ride around in a Gulfstream airplane at the tax payers expense while criticizing the presidents of companies who produced something for the economy. You add nothing to the economy of the United States ; you only subtract therefrom.

I would like to suggest that you return to the city of fruitcakes and nuts and eat your husbands canned tuna and pineapple produced by illegal immigrants and by workers who have been excluded from the protection that 90% of the legal workers in the United States have.

I await your defeat in the next election with glee...

Dont ever use the term un-American again for protesters who love this country and are exercising their rights upon which this country was founded. By the way, while I served in the Army, I was spit on by the same type of lunatics who support you and who you probably supported in the 60s and 70s. You are an embarrassment to all of us who served so that you would have the protected right of free speech to call us un-American. But at the same time, I have the right to write you to notify you that I consider you to be un-American, as do the majority of the people of this formerly great country. You are a true disgrace to most of the people who served this country by offering themselves for public service in the United States Congress.

I feel certain your aides will not share this letter with you, but I intend to share it with many...





Let's help this man fulfill his 'commitment' to Pelosi !

Fwd: Nutcase Obama Tells CNBC He's Purposely Kept His Anti-GOP Rhetoric Down









IS OBAMA NUTS? Tells CNBC He's Purposely Kept His Anti-GOP Rhetoric Down

Oct 03, 2013 07:37 am | Jeff Dunetz

Last night President Obama told CNBC reporter John Harwood that he believes that he has "bent over backwards" and kept his "rhetoric down" in order to make sure that he was not central to the debate over the government shutdown.

Harwood asked Obama about his "tone" over the course of the debate leading to a government shutdown. Harwood asked if it was Obama's intention to create the impression that he thinks his Republican opponents are "either craven, or stupid, or nuts."

"John, I think it's fair to say that, during the course of my presidency, I've bent over backwards to work with the Republican Party," Obama said. "And have purposely kept my rhetoric down."

No Really! This isn't one of those satire posts where my Cousin Ben the Spy ends up providing secret information. He really said that! The record will show that Obama is either lying or suffering some sort of memory loss.

Remember how he bent over backwards the day after the Navy shooting?

"I can't remember a time when one faction of one party promises chaos if it can't get 100 percent of what it wants. … that's what happening right now"

Remember when Chief Justice John Roberts his opinion at the last minute and supported Obamacare? He tweeted this:


Of Course he has to bash the GOP because they want to take away all government programs and give the money to the rich;

"The Republicans in this race, they've got a fundamentally different idea," he told a small crowd who paid at least $10,000 to attend the private affair at a home in Palm Beach Gardens.

"Their basic deal is that if they dismantle government investments in infrastructure or clean energy research, or education, if they give it all away in tax cuts to folks like me and some of you who don't need them and weren't even asking for them, that that somehow makes America stronger."

Anyway, all the GOP really wants to do is destroy the environment:

"My plan says we're going to put teachers back in the classroom, construction workers back to work rebuilding America, rebuilding our schools, tax cuts for small businesses, tax cuts for hiring veterans, tax cuts if you give your worker a raise," said Obama. "That's my plan. Then you've got their plan, which is, let's have dirtier air, dirtier water, less people with health insurance. So far at least, I feel better about my plan."

 And for those Republicans who do not believe the global warming myth:

"We don't have time for a meeting of the flat-earth society."

 Obama's "truth" is that the GOP is distracted:

"With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball,"

They don't care about the middle class they just want to play mind games:

"Unfortunately right now, the debate going on in Congress is not meeting the test of helping middle class families," Obama said. "They're not focused on you. They're focused on politics. They're focused on trying to mess with me. They're not focused on you."

While most of the above quotes are recent, there are plenty more where that came from (and it doesn't even include the nastiness coming from those who speak in his name such as David Plouffe's recent suicide bomber statement).

Since he first arrived on the national political stage this President has persistently spewed hateful comments about the GOP, the Tea Party, and anyone else who would dare to disagree with his policies.   It's hard to come up with another Commander-in-Chief who has spoken out with such venom, and as often as Barack Obama. If this is what he means by "keeping the rhetoric down,"  one would hate to see would happen if he decided to get real nasty.

Fwd: Russia's Putin Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize For Preventing Nobel Winner Obama From Starting a War







Russia's Putin Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize For Preventing Nobel Winner Obama From Starting War

Oct 02, 2013 09:48 pm | Jeff Dunetz

The supposed intent of the Syrian war President Obama tried to start, punishing Bashar al-Assad's use of chemical weapons--achieved nothing--well ALMOST nothing. It was Vladimir Putin who saved Barack Obama from the embarrassment of having his Syrian war rejected by Congress.  and now Putin has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

 ..seizing on his proposal to dismantle Syria's chemical weapons stockpile and forestall a missile strike that had been threatened by President Obama, a Russian advocacy group said on Tuesday that it had nominated President Vladimir V. Putin for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Members of the group, called the International Academy of Spiritual Unity and Cooperation of Peoples of the World, said at a news conference here on Tuesday that Mr. Putin was far more deserving of the peace prize than Mr. Obama, who received it in 2009 but has continued to lead American military operations — including drone strikes that have killed civilians and American citizens abroad.

By contrast, they portrayed Mr. Putin, who has steadfastly opposed military intervention throughout the two-and-a-half year-old civil war in Syria, as a man who favors diplomatic solutions. 


Yes this is the same guy who invaded Georgia, the same guy who kept Assad in power so he could gas his own people (and he is still selling weapons to the Syrian government of  Bashar al-Assad).
This supposed peacemaker also provides aid the Iranians and has fought so hard to prevent sanctions on Iran because of its nuclear program. 

At home Putin has closed every avenue through which people might peacefully and legally select or even affect their government including sending dissenters to jail.

Vladimir Putin is not now nor has he ever been a peacemaker.  But the prediction here is that he will win.  The Prize committee loves to tweak the United States and they have to be disappointed  in how Obama has created wars since he won the prize.

It would be nice to see a someone win the Nobel Prize for preventing another Nobel Prize winner from starting an unnecessary war.

Al Sharpton, ‘PoliticsNation’ Advertisers Targeted in New Boycott

Al Sharpton, 'PoliticsNation' Advertisers Targeted in New Boycott

by Oct 7, 2013 5:45 AM EDT

A new group bent on unmasking 'leftists in the media' has its first target—MSNBC's 'racial extortionist,' the Rev. Al Sharpton. David Freedlander talks with the leader of the right's answer to Media Matters.

A group of conservative activists, tired of what they see as a persistent and little remarked liberal bias in the news media, are set to begin a series of boycotts aimed at advertisers who sponsor what they see as left-wing networks, outlets, and journalists.

Al Sharpton broadcasts live on 43rd Annual Legislative Conference

Earl Gibson III/Getty

On Sunday they announced their first target, the Rev. Al Sharpton, the civil-rights leader turned MSNBC talk-show host whose PoliticsNation has grown in influence and audience since making its debut two years ago.

"Sharpton is a racial extortionist who has instigated racial animosities, violence, and division in America for the last forty years," write the boycott's organizers. "In better times, Sharpton would be stigmatized and condemned for the damage he has done. But today he is a primetime host on MSNBC—the charter cable news network for NBC News, and a favored outlet for the Obama administration's spin doctors."

The boycott is part of Truth Revolt, a new project by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a right-wing foundation that has focused on what it calls liberal bias in Hollywood and on college campuses. Truth Revolt, which says its purpose is to "unmask leftists in the media for who they are, destroy their credibility with the American public, and devastate their funding bases," is led by Ben Shapiro, an editor-at-large for the conservative website Breitbart News and the author, most recently, of Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America.

The first Sharpton sponsor the group is targeting is Ritz Crackers, owned by Chicago-based Mondelez International. Shapiro said Truth Revolt chose Mondelez because it bills itself as a "family-friendly company" and because it was one of the few advertisers to respond to the group's inquiries about why it supports the Sharpton show.

As part of its response, Mondelez International said in a statement to Truth Revolt: "At Mondelez International we demonstrate our commitment to responsible corporate citizenship by participating in programs that best serve a wide range of local communities and their interests and needs. We extend our responsibility to the sponsorship of tasteful, believable television programming and we avoid sponsorship of programs that would be unacceptable in terms of generally accepted social or community standards."

Asked if it was fair for to target the company with a boycott after it responded to the group's inquiries, Shapiro said, "Is it fair that in the political media we only quote people who give us a quote?"

"The goal is to be a response not only to Media Matters but to a new tactic used plentifully by the left, which is the attempt to go after conservative hosts and commentators."

Shapiro also cited as reason for picking Ritz and Mondelez a speech Sharpton gave at Kean College in 1994, in which he said: "Do some cracker come and tell you, 'Well my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,' you better hold your pocket. That ain't nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was crooks."

"Sharpton doesn't dislike all 'crackers,'" Shapiro writes on the Truth Revolt website.

The group says Sharpton is worthy of a boycott because of his role in the Tawana Brawley case and the Crown Heights riots in New York in the 1980s. He has since run for mayor of New York and for president of the United States, and has become a sought-after political powerbroker in New York and in Washington, D.C., where he has met several times with President Obama.

Asked why the group was dredging up 25-year-old incidents to spur a boycott, Shapiro said Sharpton has not recanted those incidents and that he has gone yet further by leading rallies against George Zimmerman to protest the Trayvon Martin shooting.

"He went down to Sanford and threatened civil disobedience against the city if Zimmerman wasn't arrested and then used that as fodder for his show," Shapiro said. "He uses the platform of his show for a racially divisive shakedown of the kind that he [promoted] during the Tawana Brawley case."

Representatives for Sharpton and MSNBC did not respond to request for comment.

Truth Revolt was founded earlier this year and is designed as a counterweight to Media Matters, a liberal media watchdog group that calls attention to contentious, offensive, or erroneous statements by members of the media. But while Media Matters focuses mostly on conservative talk radio hosts and Fox News, Truth Revolt will take on the mainstream press for what it sees as often an hidden liberal agenda. And Truth Revolt plans to bring active pressure to bear on sponsors and advertisers, as it is doing with Ritz and Sharpton.

"The goal is to be a response not only to Media Matters but to a new tactic used plentifully by the left, which is the attempt to go after conservative hosts and commentators by cutting off their base of support, both in the funding community and in the advertising community," said Shapiro.

Shapiro himself was the target of media critics earlier this year when he reported that Chuck Hagel had given paid speeches for a group called "Friends of Hamas." The group turned out to be fictitious, made up by a New York Daily News writer, who inquired rhetorically about it in a message to a GOP congressional aide, who then apparently passed along the made-up name to Shapiro.

Shapiro defended his conduct during that saga, saying he was merely reporting the rumor and that his reporting was of a similar standard to that in The Washington Post and other mainstream outlets.

"Everybody is an imperfect messenger," he said. "If this is the argument, that those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, then there are never going to be any journalistic standards. I am still searching for the journalist who has never made a mistake."

And he said boycotts like the one aimed at Sharpton are just the beginning.

"Politics is a hard-nosed game, and the right has been playing Marquess of Queensbury Rules for a long time on this," he said.

Fwd: What a Patriotic President Would Have Done






October 7, 2013

What a Patriotic President Would Have Done

Bruce Johnson

The other day, during the shutdown in Washington D.C., Biden and Obama went to lunch at a deli near the White House. It was a photo op, dreamed up by some underling public relations staff member. The idea was to patronize the restaurant that was giving furloughed federal workers a price break on their meals.

The intent of the imagery was obvious. Of course, what is lost is the fact the federal employees, those of the 20% of government actually shut down, are getting a paid vacation. To give them price breaks at a restaurant is frivolously absurd. We need only add that the Washington D.C. corridor has had the largest national rise in incomes and property values.

But what would a patriotic president have done on that day? Down at the other end of the mall sits the WWII memorial, the Vietnam memorial, and the Korean memorial, with the Iwo Jima memorial just across the river. A patriotic president might have gotten in his limo and traveled to each of those sites and ordered the barricades removed. Then, from his phone in the limo, he could have called the Normandy cemetreries and told them to reopen. And a quick trip over the Potomac to Arlington as well.

Now that would have been a photo op! But, alas, it seems certain that the thought never crossed this president's mind.

Fwd: Ayatollah Obama; Twin Heresies







http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/58378

 

President Obama's targeting of memorials and places of national pride in the government shutdown battle are symptomatic of the twin heresies that were at the heart of his upbringing.

Ayatollah Obama; Twin Heresies

By Timothy Birdnow (Bio and Archives) Sunday, October 6, 2013


"He said, 'Fight them so that there is no more rebellion, and religion, all of it, is for Allah only. Allah must have no rivals.'"—Ishaq:324

When Constantinople fell in 1453 the conquering Turks systematically expunged all evidence of Christian influence there. Perhaps the most egregious thing they did was to convert the world famous Haiga Sophia, basilica of the Patriarch of Constantinople, to a mosque, plastering over the magnificent mosaics that adorned the walls of that famous house of Christian worship. This act of vandalism was hardly unique in the history if Islam; Islam tolerates no competitors in the lands they take by force.

We have seen this in our own time, with the Taliban's destruction of enormous statues of Buddha in Afghanistan as well as Islamists destroying such artifacts in Timbuktu. We have heard calls by Muslims to destroy the pyramids in Egypt and the tomb of St. Joseph of Shechem in 2000, as well as Al Aqsa. We have seen the desecration of the Church of the Nativity by Palestinian militants hiding from the IDF. They eventually left after a siege, leaving the floor littered with feces and trash.

And this is not limited to holy sites; after Islamic Jihadists destroyed the Twin Towers in New York a Muslim proselytizer came along to establish a victory mosque on the site. Victory mosques are common practice, a way of rubbing the enemies nose in their defeat.

Islam permits no competitors; there are two kingdoms, the Dar Al Islam and the rest. If you are not with them you are their enemies. Enemies must be destroyed.

Consider these verses from the works of Ibn Ishaq, the collections of Islamic oral traditions:

Ishaq:552 "When the populace had settled down, Muhammad went to the Ka'aba and compassed it seven times on his camel, touching the Black Stone with a stick. Then he went inside the Temple. There he found a dove made of wood. He broke it in his hands and threw it away."

Ishaq:552 "The Ka'aba contained 360 idols which Lucifer had strengthened with lead. The Apostle was standing by them with a stick in his hand, saying, 'The truth has come and falsehood has passed away.' Then he pointed at them with his stick and they collapsed on their backs one after the other."

Ishaq:85 "The people were afraid to demolish the temple and withdrew in terror from it. Al-Walid said, 'I will begin the demolition.' He took up his pickaxe and walked up to Allah's House saying, 'O Ka'aba, do not be afraid. O Allah we intend nothing but good.' The he demolished part of it near the two corners."

Islam makes it a priority to destroy the holy places, the shrines, the places of honor of its enemies.

The recent showdown between the House of Representatives and the Senate and President Obama over funding of the Left's sacred cow - universal healthcare - has led to a partial shutdown of the government. In an effort to make the shutdown as visible and painful as possible, President Obama issued orders to shut down numerous parks and historical landmarks across the nation and even in Europe. He closed the WWII memorial, ordering it barricaded and taped off and giving orders to the Park Police to arrest any elderly veterans who made honor flights to visit their memorial.

Mount Vernon, privately owned, was also almost shut down, or rather barricaded by the government. So too was the cemetery in Normandy and others across the globe..

This desire to strike out at sacred symbols of our national heritage is interesting in that the man ultimately responsible for the orders is one Barrack Hussein Obama. Mr. Osama's father (about whom he waxed so poetic in his books) was a Muslim, as are his siblings. So too was Osama's step-father Lolo Souter, who saw fit to have young Barrack educated in a Madras in Indonesia. Mr. Obama may not be a practicing Muslim, but Islam was certainly a major influence on the man, especially in his formative years. (He is certainly not a Christian, at least not in the normal sense of the term. He has described the Muslim call to prayer as a beautiful sound, and has said he would stand with the Muslims if push came to shove.

It is not far-fetched to think Obama understands the importance of conquering the shrines and holy places of the infidel.

The ancient Chinese military historian Sun Tzu offered this admonition:

"Begin by seizing something which your opponent holds dear"

And Obama knows that, especially where the Tea Party is concerned, these monuments are near and dear to us. Forcing his opponents to fund Obamacare is his version of a victory mosque.

But there's more.

Islam is a Christian heresy. Heavily reliant on Jewish and Christian beliefs, Muhammad created a new faith that included the Jewish Law sans Jews and Christian beliefs while denying the Deity of Christ.

Islam flourished where Christian heresies flourished. Donatism, Socianism, Arianism, Islam held appeal for all of these, and possesses elements of them all. Ditto Mithraism, an early competitor of Christianity in the Roman Empire, provided some of the framework for Jihad. Mithraism held great appeal for soldiers as it called them to holy war, and it was an offshoot of Zoroastrianism, the Persian religion, so it's incorporation into Islam held great appeal in the East.

These heresies all flourished in the Middle East, where Islam would take root. Also, the top-down nature of Orthodox Christianity, controlled as it was by the Byzantine Emperor, associated it with the rich and powerful. Islam appealed to those who hated the corrupt Church/State alliance. Strangely, Islam was worse, creating a true theocracy where the religion was the law.

Read Hilaire Belloc in his description of Christian heresies on Islam.

Belloc, writing in the early part of the 20th century, predicted the re-emergence of Islam as a world force based entirely on the models provided by previous heresies.

Belloc says of Islam:

"Mohammedanism was a [heresy]: that is the essential point to grasp
before going any further. It began as a heresy, not as a new religion. It
was not a pagan contrast with the Church; it was not an alien enemy. It
was a perversion of Christian doctrine. It vitality and endurance soon
gave it the appearance of a new religion, but those who were contemporary
with its rise saw it for what it was not a denial, but an adaptation and a
misuse, of the Christian thing."

And Belloc was absolutely correct; it piggybacked on Christian beliefs and Christian tradition, twisting it out of shape, claiming Muhammad was the Paraclete prophesied by Jesus.

More on this here.

It is interesting to note that Belloc explains the success of Islam as one tied to the redistribution of wealth; wherever the Muslims conquered they forgave debt and seized the property of the wealthy and successful. Does that sound familiar?

Islam also legalized the sexual revolution, allowing a man four wives and as many concubines (read hookups) as he wished. Sound familiar?

Islam was strongly anti-clerical, with no established religious hierarchy. There was (and is) no theology but that which one wishes to believe. Muslim warlords delighted in murdering and disgracing Christian priests and Bishops. Sound familiar?

Islam was monistic in that it unified Church and State under a leader who was concerned with all aspects of life. The subjects of the State were under the control of the Muslim elites, who not only governed but ruled almost all aspects of life. Sound familiar?

Meanwhile, the same can be said of Liberalism.

Liberalism has likewise been described as a Christian heresy.

As Ross Dothan, author of the book Bad Religion, in an internet debate with William Saletan, states:

"[W]hen I look at your secular liberalism, I see a system of thought that looks rather like a Christian heresy, and not necessarily a particularly coherent one at that. In [his recent book] Bad Religion, I describe heresy as a form of belief that tends to emphasize certain elements of the Christian synthesis while downgrading or dismissing other aspects of that whole. And it isn't surprising that liberalism, which after all developed in a Christian civilization, does exactly that, drawing implicitly on the Christian intellectual inheritance to ground its liberty-equality-fraternity ideals.

Indeed, it's completely obvious that absent the Christian faith, there would be no liberalism at all. No ideal of universal human rights without Jesus' radical upending of social hierarchies (including his death alongside common criminals on the cross). No separation of church and state without the gospels' "render unto Caesar" and St. Augustine's two cities. No liberal confidence about the march of historical progress without the Judeo-Christian interpretation of history as an unfolding story rather than an endlessly repeating wheel.

And what's more, to me, contemporary liberals' obsession with the supposed backwardness of Christian sexual ethics—an obsession that far outstrips sex's actual role in the preaching and practice of Christian faith—reflects a subconscious liberal knowledge that Christianity is their theological mother, and they're its half-rebellious child. You can see in it the child's characteristic desire to finally overthrow the last bastion of parental authority, joined to a continued desire for the parent's approval for their choices and beliefs. ...

The more purely secular liberalism has become, the more it has spent down its Christian inheritance—the more its ideals seem to hang from what Christopher Hitchens' Calvinist sparring partner Douglas Wilson has called intellectual "skyhooks," suspended halfway between our earth and the heaven on which many liberals have long since given up. Say what you will about the prosperity gospel and the cult of the God Within and the other theologies I criticize in Bad Religion, but at least they have a metaphysically coherent picture of the universe to justify their claims. Whereas much of today's liberalism expects me to respect its moral fervor even as it denies the revelation that once justified that fervor in the first place. It insists that it is a purely secular and scientific enterprise even as it grounds its politics in metaphysical claims. (You will not find the principle of absolute human equality in evolutionary theory, or universal human rights anywhere in physics.) It complains that Christian teachings on homosexuality do violence to gay people's equal dignity—but if the world is just matter in motion, whence comes this dignity? What justifies and sustains it? Why should I grant it such intense, almost supernatural respect?"

Liberalism was born as the evil twin of the Protestant Reformation. Unlike Protestantism it rejected the Christian spiritual trappings while maintaining a core of the beliefs. That is why Liberals preach Christian virtues like charity, tolerance, forbearance, equality, and whatnot. But they do not preach it as individual actions but as collective, state-sponsored works. The State replaced the Church in the Liberal worldview. This can be traced back to Jean Jacques Rousseau, who created the notion of Nationalism, whereby the "nation" was to be worshipped as the sum of the collective will. Rousseau knew what he was doing; he wanted to break the power of the clergy, of the Church, of the "superstition" of Christianity. He wanted a false god on the throne. He was also quite taken with Islam, and proposed it as a model.

And that explains why liberals are so missionaristic, so eager to expand their beliefs. They, like the Muslims before them, broach no dissenters. They are willing to kill - as many people as it takes - to guarantee the victory of their beliefs. Look at Stalin. Mao. Pol Pot. Hitler, Castro, etc..

The similarities between Islam and Liberalism are striking. Both are engaged in Jihad.

Barack Hussein Obama was the child of both worlds. He was sired by a Muslim, educated by Muslims, raised by a Muslim. His mother was a radical leftist, as was the grandfather who took on the task of raising him after Mr. Soetero departed, and his father's good friend and next door neighbor was Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying Communist, who took the boy under his wing. Obama taught a class on Saul Alinsky, the father of leftist radicalism (who dedicated his book to Lucifer, the first rebel). Obama went to Chicago, home of the most radical leftists in America, to launch his career. He became a member of the communist New Party, and a communist terrorist named William Ayers launched his political career.

He is the crux, the person at the crossroads between the blood brothers of Islam and Liberalism.

I am not saying Barack Obama is going to cut off heads, or burn down Christian churches or Jewish synagogues, but I am saying he comes from two very ruthless strains of thought, neither of which tolerates opposition. And he understands the importance of symbols to his enemies. If we are to understand the man we must understand his roots, his intellectual influences, his religious beliefs, his upbringing. Obama was brought up steeped in Jihad - both Islamic and Leftist. He will destroy his opponents (as indeed he has personally destroyed almost everyone he has run against rather than actually beaten them with ideas.) His actions in this continuing resolution battle are absolutely predictable. It should come as no surprise that he would go after our monuments and places of honor.

In the end, Obama can be forced to retreat to fight another day. But that requires that we continue to fight. Like Charles Martel in France, or Jan III Sobieski at Vienna, Obama can be defeated. It simply takes determination. Let us hope the GOP finds that sort of backbone.
