THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE BEGINS...

Even now, plans under way for Obama national holiday
'I thought it was required that a person be dead before they are memorialized'

Sonny Scroggins

A civil rights organization in Kansas has launched a campaign to designate Nov. 4 as a national holiday, commemorating the election of Barack Obama

as president.

"The reason why I want to have this holiday is because it marks the day America grew up," said Sonny Scroggins, founder and president of Bias Busters of Kansas, the organization pushing for the holiday.

Scroggins told WND that America has for too long focused on what our ancestors did during legalized slavery, but the election of Obama shows that we no longer allow race and gender to be the deciding factors in guiding our nation, but integrity and honor.

Referring to the overwhelming majority of young voters that cast ballots for Obama, Scroggins said, "The children, thirty-something and below, they put America on the right path, a path of liberty, justice, freedom, and equality for all.

"We're not going to deny the heritage of America – it's black, it's white, red, yellow," Scroggins told WND. "Obama is white and black. He represents the best of both worlds."

Scroggins' organization has now formed a "Yes, We Can" committee that will be meeting twice every Tuesday at a historic, downtown Topeka McDonald's restaurant from now until Inauguration Day to work toward the goal of establishing Nov. 4 as a national holiday.

Source: Obama secretly pledged cooperation with Syria
Said to favor Israel's retreat from strategic Golan Heights

Syrian Ambassador Imad Moustapha

JERUSALEM – Representatives of President-elect Barack Obama recently told Syrian officials that Obama supports ending their county's isolation and that as president he would work to bring Damascus into the international community

, a Syrian diplomatic source revealed to WND.

The source said the pledges were made this past summer in a meeting in Washington

, D.C., between Obama's policy aids and Syrian Ambassador Imad Moustapha. The source said Moustapha was asked at the time by Obama's camp not to comment on the meeting.

The source said Moustapha was told that Obama favors engagement and economic cooperation with Syria as opposed to the Bush administration's policy of isolating the country and imposing economic sanctions.

The source also disclosed Obama's team said the president-elect favors talks between Israel and Syria leading to an Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights, strategic, mountainous territory looking down on Israeli population centers that was twice used in the past by Syria to mount ground invasions into the Jewish state.

The Supreme Court and Obama’s Birth Certificate

[from Joan Swirsky's America the Beautiful]

If The Supreme Court Decides…?

At this point, Supreme Court Justice David Souter’s Clerk informed Philip J. Berg, the lawyer who brought the case against Obama, that his petition for an injunction to stay the November 4th election was denied, but the Clerk also required the defendants to respond to the Writ of Certiorari (which requires the concurrence of four Justices) by December 1. At that time, Mr. Obama must present to the Court an authentic birth certificate, after which Mr. Berg will respond.

If Obama fails to do that, it is sure to inspire the skepticism of the Justices, who are unaccustomed to being defied. They will have to decide what to do about a president-elect who refuses to prove his natural-born citizenship.

“I can see a unanimous Court (en banc) decertifying the election if Obama refuses to produce his birth certificate,” says Raymond S. Kraft, an attorney and writer. “They cannot do otherwise without abandoning all credibility as guardians of the Constitution. Even the most liberal justices, however loathe they may to do this, still consider themselves guardians of the Constitution. The Court is very jealous of its power - even over presidents, even over presidents-elect.”

Also remember that on December 13, the Electoral College meets to casts its votes. If it has been determined that Mr. Obama is an illegal alien and therefore ineligible to become President of the United States, the Electors will be duty-bound to honor the Constitution.

Is America Headed for a Constitutional Crisis?

Posted by: Dr. Richard Swier | 11/03/2008 6:01 AM

We have reported on the law suit filed by Philip Berg, Esquire, former Democratic Assistant Attorney General from Pennsylvania and former Chairman of the Democratic Party there. That law suit was denied in the Federal Court saying Mr. Berg had no standing as a U.S. citizen to question Senator Obama's birth status. Mr. Berg has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Now we learn that the State of Hawaii has backed an assertion by Mr. Andy Martin that there was an original, "typewritten, 1961" birth certificate, called a "Certificate of Live Birth" or "COLB" in Hawaii, that no one has previously seen.

Hawaii officials retrieved and examined the document after Mr. Martin filed a lawsuit seeking access to the historic 1961 original. Obama has falsely claimed to have placed the "original" on the Internet. Factcheck.org has falsely claimed to have seen this document and posted it on the Internet; that is not true. CNN has falsely ridiculed Mr. Martin.

For the full story click here.

The question remains if and when the 1961 copy of Senator Obama's Certificate of Live Birth is made public will it impact his status as a U.S. naturalized citizen or will it just show him and his campaign engaged in the biggest cover up and lie in American politics?

Please Senator Obama release the 1961 vault copy of your birth certificate today.

Sir,

Be advised, Cabela's here in Fort Worth, Texas is sold out on all ammo except 22 LR and shotgun shells. A friend who went there today was amazed to find all ammo shelves emptied. The last time I went there (shortly before the election) the place was a mad house. Standing room only, many people turned down on their background checks (or delayed). I considered myself lucky to get in and out of there in an hour. I got my new toy, no problem and plenty of ammo "at sale price". Cheaper Than Dirt's prices have doubled or tripled. They will not honor their printed catalog prices and I consider them as garbage now. They have lost my business.

Web faux pas: Plan leaked for 'civilian security force'?
Before blogs caught it, Obama site told of requiring students to serve

Posted: November 08, 2008
3:36 pm Eastern

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

The official website of President-Elect Barack Obama, Change.gov, originally announced that Obama would "require" all middle school through college students to participate in community service programs; but after a flurry of blogs protested children being drafted into Obama's proposed youth corps, the website's wording was softened.

Originally, under the tab "America Serves" Change.gov read, "President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in under served schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps.

"Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year," the site announced.

The language of requiring students to serve and the creation of a "Classroom Corps" sparked a surge of criticism from bloggers for bringing back memories of the much-publicized video of marching Obama youth and Obama's "civilian national security force," which the candidate said in July would be just as powerful and well-funded as the U.S. military.

Gateway Pundit called Obama's plan the "creation of his Marxist youth corps," and DBKP commented, "'Choosing' to serve should be approved by parents – not required by the government. No amount of good intentions can sugar-coat words like 'mandatory,' 'compulsory' or 'required.'"

Following the furor raised by bloggers, however, the website's wording was changed.

Chinese hack into White House network

By Demetri Sevastopulo in Washington

Published: November 6 2008 19:13 | Last updated: November 7 2008 00:24

Chinese hackers have penetrated the White House computer network on multiple occasions, and obtained e-mails between government officials, a senior US official told the Financial Times.

On each occasion, the cyber attackers accessed the White House computer system for brief periods, allowing them enough time to steal information before US computer experts patched the system.

COMMENTARY BY HARRY GORMAN

My friend Harry is 93 years old

Fellow Americans,

The Not-so-Great Depression of the 1930s still sits on my back. World War II and the era of Hitler, Stalin, Mao-tse-Tung are equally hideous memories.

But, I do not remember, in the 75 years since then, observing such upset, such unease, such uncertainty -- as is afflicting the banking industry and Stock Market today.

The haste with which Congress passed that $700,000,00 "rescue" bill is a signal to me that our financial institutions are suffering the medical equivalent of "malaria" -- the periodic sweats, debilitating fevers and related miseries that accompany this chronic disease.

Did this monstrous "funny money" (phony paper money) Band Aid bailout effect a cure?
I doubt it.

I think this first 'emergency' is a thunderclap in a storm of unknown dimension.

A lot of people (including me) don't quite understand the function, the twists and turns of our financial institutions -- especially the Federal Reserve Bank which I suspect is not truly a Government banking regulator and interest pace setter -- but is manipulated by private interests -- not always beneficial to Americans-at-large.

What I do know is that, if our lending institutions are not stabilized so they can provide credit loans to small and large businesses, for payrolls and capital expansion and to individuals for mortgages, home improvement, etc. -- we will find ourselves embracing another Depression which will make the one I lived through look like a kiddy birthday party.

It doesn't take much detective work to discover that these financial miseries also have their root beginnings in the "sacred", corrupt, incompetent Halls of Congresses, past and present.

Pray God that President-elect Obama, soon to inherit these multiple messes, surrounds himself with wise, experienced, honest, patriotic men who will guide this intelligent but not life-experienced young-ish man to remedial actions that will stabilize our storm-tossed Ship of State -- not sink it.

It is said that the best school is at the knee of an old, life-experienced man.

Obama to appoint talk radio's executioner?
Expected FCC transition chief served during 'Fairness Doctrine' days

Posted: November 08, 2008
1:00 am Eastern

© 2008 WorldNetDaily


Henry Rivera

Democrat Henry Rivera, a former commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, is expected to head President-elect Barack Obama's FCC transition team, a move that has sparked fear in media circles that the Fairness Doctrine may return to silence conservative talk radio.

If reenacted, the "Fairness Doctrine" would require broadcasts over the public airwaves to give equal time to opposing political views. For talk radio, which boomed after the law's repeal in 1987 by building an audience devoted to conservative talk, the law's return would decimate the industry's marketability.

Many fear the "Fairness Doctrine" would drive talk radio hosts – like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage – out of business.

Brian Maloney of the blog The Radio Equalizer said in his post, "Meet Talk's Executioner," he believes Rivera will use his position to bring back the law for that very purpose.

Rivera, according to Maloney, "is expected to lead the push to dismantle commercial talk radio that is favored by a number of Democratic Party senators. Rivera will play a pivotal role in preventing critics from having a public voice during Obama's

tenure in office."

I RECEIVED THIS IN AN EMAIL: (you got what you asked for and now it will cost you dearly - you deserve it)

From Sunday's Televised 'Meet the Press' Senator Obama was asked
about his stance on the American Flag. Obama Explains National Anthem Stance

Sun, 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.)
asked Obama to explain why he doesn't follow protocol when National
Anthem is played.

The General also stated to the Senator that according to the United
States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171... During rendition of
the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except
those in uniform are expected to stand at attention facing the flag
with the right hand over the heart. At the very least, 'Stand and Face It'

Senator Obama Live on Sunday states, 'As I've said about the flag
pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides, Obama said.
'There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is
a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like
message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be
swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the
song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing.' If that
were our anthem, then I might salute it. We should consider to
reinvent our National Anthem as well as to redesign our Flag to
better offer our enemies hope and love. My wife disrespects the Flag
for many personal reasons. Together she and I have attended several
flag burning ceremonies in the past, many years ago. She has her
views and I have mine'.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right. This is our next

Dems Target Private Retirement Accounts

Democratic leaders in the U.S. House discuss confiscating 401(k)s, IRAs

By Karen McMahan

November 04, 2008

RALEIGH — Democrats in the U.S. House have been conducting hearings on proposals to confiscate workers’ personal retirement accounts — including 401(k)s and IRAs — and convert them to accounts managed by the Social Security Administration.

Triggered by the financial crisis the past two months, the hearings reportedly were meant to stem losses incurred by many workers and retirees whose 401(k) and IRA balances have been shrinking rapidly.

The testimony of Teresa Ghilarducci, professor of economic policy analysis at the New School for Social Research in New York, in hearings Oct. 7 drew the most attention and criticism. Testifying for the House Committee on Education and Labor, Ghilarducci proposed that the government eliminate tax breaks for 401(k) and similar retirement accounts, such as IRAs, and confiscate workers’ retirement plan accounts and convert them to universal Guaranteed Retirement Accounts (GRAs) managed by the Social Security Administration.

Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., chairman of the House Committee on Education and Labor, in prepared remarks for the hearing on “The Impact of the Financial Crisis on Workers’ Retirement Security,” blamed Wall Street for the financial crisis and said his committee will “strengthen and protect Americans’ 401(k)s, pensions, and other retirement plans” and the “Democratic Congress will continue to conduct this much-needed oversight on behalf of the American people.”

Currently, 401(k) plans allow Americans to invest pretax money and their employers match up to a defined percentage, which not only increases workers’ retirement savings but also reduces their annual income tax. The balances are fully inheritable, subject to income tax, meaning workers pass on their wealth to their heirs, unlike Social Security. Even when they leave an employer and go to one that doesn’t offer a 401(k) or pension, workers can transfer their balances to a qualified IRA.

The Betrayal in Iraq


By David Horowitz and Ben Johnson

FrontPageMagazine.com | Friday, November 07, 2008

Editor’s Note: When a democracy goes to war, its citizens have a right to expect that even those who disagree with the decision will watch their countrymen’s backs. They have a right to expect that opponents of the war will limit their dissent to civic persuasion and will not join the enemy’s forces – either by providing them with soldiers or leaking national secrets that would weaken the nation’s defense. They have a right to expect that criticism would be tempered by a desire to minimize benefits to the enemy. If the decision to go to war has been ratified by the nation’s elected officials citizens should expect that criticism will not take the form of psychological warfare against the credibility of the commander-in-chief and the morality of the war itself.

In their book Party of Defeat: How Democrats and Radicals Undermined the War on Terror Before And After 9/11, David Horowitz and Ben Johnson argue that in the course of the war in Iraq War the leadership of the Democratic Party stepped over the bounds of reasonable criticism of national policy and conducted a campaign which amounted to political sabotage of the war effort. They base their claim on a core of critical facts that have been conveniently ignored by critics of the war.

The first is that the Democratic Party supported the invasion of Iraq, but then turned against it within four months of its inception. This was not merely a tactical about face. On the contrary, Democrats now claimed that the enemy was no threat, that the rationale for the invasion was falsified, and that America’s war was thus an unjustified aggression and American leaders were in effect war criminals.

Exploiting a minor incident at the Abu Ghraib prison to promote the idea that American leaders were indeed war criminals, Democrats went much further; they supported leaks of classified information by the New York Times and other media agencies, the publication of which destroyed national security programs; and they rallied Americans to cut off aid to their own troops and force us an American surrender in Iraq.

The second point Horowitz and Johnson make is that nothing occurred on the battlefield itself to produce such a scorched earth attack on America’s war. What produced the change was a domestic political calculation. At the time of the invasion, a Democratic primary was in progress in which a far-left antiwar candidate was about to win the party’s presidential nomination. It was this fact that caused the Democrats’ eventual candidates John Kerry and John Edwards to reverse their position on the war, and the Democratic Party followed suit. Because the Democrats could not admit their opposition to the war was based on political polls – that they were willing to sacrifice American lives abroad for political gains at home – the party’s leaders claimed that the speeches and votes they marshaled in support of the war were based on lies that George Bush told them.

The third and in some ways most important point Horowitz and Johnson make in their book is that these Democratic claims about White House deception are demonstrably false. George Bush could not have deceived the Democrats about the intelligence on Iraq because the Democrats had full access to America’s intelligence on Iraq. They had it in a 100 page report called the National Intelligence Estimate that was provided to them before their votes and also through the Senate Intelligence Committee which oversees all of America’s intelligence operations and on which John Kerry and other Democrats sit. In a democracy there are no national security secrets withheld from the opposition which is why leaders of the opposition have an obligation to be responsible critics of the war and not make the claims or conduct the kind of attacks the Democrats did.

The response to this argument laid out in Party of Defeat has been a deafening silence. The grave charges Party of DefeatNew York Times to Slate and The New Republic without exception. This silence cannot be attributed to the authors’ alleged marginality or lack of seriousness in their case. Eighteen members of congress have endorsed Party of Defeat, calling it "a well-documented and disturbing account of the unprecedented attacks by leaders of the Democratic Party on a war they supported and then turned their backs on," and advising "every American concerned about the future of their country in the war on terror [to] consider the arguments in this book." These congressional endorsers of Party of Defeat include six senators and the ranking members of committees on terrorism, intelligence, homeland security and armed services.

In an attempt to defeat the boycott of this argument, the editors of Frontpage have challenged critics of the war to answer it in these pages. Frontpage has even offered monetary compensation for the articles they might write. A surprisingly large number of prominent liberal and leftwing editors, journalists and pundits on the war in Iraq refused the offer (a list of them will be posted at a later date). Among those who did respond, including Michael Isikoff, senior correspondent for Newsweek

Today we post the response of Andrew J. Grotto, a Senior National Security Analyst at the Center for American Progress, where he specializes in U.S. strategic policy and the proliferation of nuclear and biological weapons. The Center for American Progress is the think tank created by the Clintons and George Soros and headed by John Podesta, formerly chief of staff in the Clinton White House. Grotto’s response may be taken as a reflection of the views common in the liberal mainstream, not a reassuring thought as will be evident in what follows.

The Obama Style of Diplomacy

November 6, 2008 | From theTrumpet.com

History shows that the style of diplomacy espoused by America’s next president will not work.

As he stepped from the plane onto the tarmac of Heston airport, the prime minister could barely contain his excitement. Clasped tightly between his fingers was the fruit of a long process of hard-fought diplomacy. Jubilance filled the air. The sense of relief was palpable. As he prepared to read the note to an eager public, Neville Chamberlain considered the significance history would award to this day.

Sept. 30, 1938, was to be a glorious testament to the majesty of rhetoric, and the power of diplomacy.

It was on this day that Britain’s Prime Minister Chamberlain, waving the non-aggression agreement signed by Adolf Hitler, declared those infamous words: “Peace for our time.” Chamberlain had just returned from the conference in Munich, where he had convinced Hitler to curb his aggression. The power of rhetoric and negotiation had prevailed; the clenched fist of war had been stayed.

Or so it seemed.

We all know what happened next: The catastrophe that was the Second World War erupted!

If you know anything about pre-war times, you know that Neville Chamberlain-style diplomacy was partly to blame for World War ii. Evil forces on the Continent spent most of the 1930s spoiling for war. But Neville Chamberlain and British peaceniks believed the solution to the tension was diplomacy comprised solely of dialogue, negotiation and compromise.

We are reliving the 1930s today. Evil leaders the world over are creating a vortex that will suck the world into war. But the leaders of Anglo-America—particularly the new president-elect of the United States—are planning to solve the problem in the same manner Neville Chamberlain tried—that is, through diplomacy devoid of definitive action.

Will it work? History screams at us that it will not!

Consider Iran.

For years now, Tehran and Damascus have proven, through their words as well as their actions, that they are working against America and its interests in the Middle East. Much like Hitler had designs on Europe, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has designs on the entire Middle East, particularly oil-rich, Shia-dominated Iraq.

How has Barack Obama proposed that the American government counter Tehran’s intentions? Through diplomacy alone. Obama’s website proudly states that he “supports tough, direct presidential diplomacy with Iran without preconditions.” He and his party firmly believe that talk is the solution to the heated tensions between America and Iran. Such pacifist thinking bleeds from the mainstream media as well. Appeasement has become the policy of the day.

In the report produced by the Iraq Study Group (isg) in late 2006, the authors wrote, “It is our view that in diplomacy a nation can and should engage its adversaries and enemies to try to resolve conflicts and differences consistent with its own interests. Accordingly, the Support Group should actively engage Iran and Syria in its diplomatic dialogue, without preconditions” (emphasis mine throughout). This report, which was supported for the most part by Mr. Obama, talks extensively about launching a new “diplomatic offensive” aimed at Iran, Syria and every other party with an interest in Baghdad, but it says little about underpinning these diplomatic efforts with threat of specific actions.

If America engages Ahmadinejad and Assad in conversation, what is it to do when the talks inevitably fall apart and these pathological liars renege on their side of the bargain? Neither Barack Obama nor the isg report lay out definite, strong repercussions.

On that day in 1938, it seemed Chamberlain had achieved the unachievable. He had secured peace on the Continent by gaining the promises of the testy German chancellor—and all through rhetoric. Peace had been realized without a single shot being fired. Adding to the sweetness of the day for Chamberlain was the knowledge that he had proven Winston Churchill—his “war-mongering” arch-nemesis—wrong. For years Chamberlain had been tormented by Churchill’s warnings about the mounting force and motivation of Germany and the need for Britain to build its military. Surely Chamberlain’s accomplishments at the Munich conference would prove to Churchill that military force was unnecessary for securing peace.

Or so Chamberlain thought.

Less than a year after that signature moment in Chamberlain’s life, the world experienced a signature moment of its own. On Sept. 1, 1939, Hitler flouted the non-aggression pact, fired up the engines of his military, and ignited World War ii by rumbling eastward into Poland. Two days later, when France and Britain declared war on Germany, Chamberlain diplomacy was pronounced officially dead. The only solution was action.

The lesson is, diplomacy not underpinned by threat of action is fruitless, even dangerous. Rather than gain peace, Chamberlain diplomacy only strengthens the enemy and precipitates conflict. After signing the non-aggression pact in Munich in 1938, Hitler returned to Germany and stoked the already hot fires of German industry in order to churn out more planes, more tanks and more rifles. Chamberlain’s diplomacy armed Hitler with more time.

By the time France and Britain declared war on Germany, it was too late to prevent World War ii.

Consider the outcome of events had Chamberlain underpinned his diplomacy with action. How powerful could Hitler’s military have grown if Britain had responded to Germany’s war-mongering in the 1930s? Churchill labeled World War ii “the Unnecessary War” simply because it could have been prevented with firm action at virtually any time during the early 1930s.

Consider an analogy. I’m fairly good about not exceeding the speed limit when I’m driving. Why? Well, one major reason is that I know I could be pulled over by a police officer and fined, which could in turn drive up the cost of my insurance. Imagine if the only ramification for speeding was a tongue-lashing and an eloquent speech on why not to speed. In most cases that wouldn’t be enough to prevent us from speeding. It’s the threat of tangible punishment that gives weight and importance to the policeman’s correction and moves us to drive within the speed limit.

Diplomacy comprised solely of words and conversation is little more than idle chit-chat. This was the Chamberlain form of diplomacy. It’s also the Obama style of diplomacy!

Speaking to an audience in New Hampshire in 2006, vice-president-elect Joseph Biden condemned further military involvement in Iraq and said the solution to Iraq’s problems lies in political dialogue. The Middle East is seething with problems for America. Israel faces the possibility of a three-front war with Syria in the Golan Heights, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Iran remains a central factor in Iraq. Like Germany in the 1930s, every sign says war is about to surge across the Middle East. But like Chamberlain, America’s current and incoming leadership believes the solutions lie in conversation and negotiation. Yank the troops out, and let’s sit down at the negotiating table with Iran and Syria, the reasoning goes.

The result is that the enemies of Western civilization today simply do not fear consequences for their actions. Hence, Russia invades Georgia; Hezbollah launches war against Israel; Hamas lobs rockets at Sderot; North Korea freely tests long-range missiles and nuclear weapons; Iran spurns international pressure to refrain from doing the same; Iraqi and Afghan insurgents brazenly attack Western forces.

Time has proven these evil forces cannot be talked into giving up their destructive agendas. But the general policy in international bodies—and in American politics, with a couple of brief exceptions—is still to forgo action for the sake of talk, indefinitely. In October 2006, Dr. George Friedman from Stratfor Systems discussed American diplomacy in the event of the Democrats gaining more influence in the government. “Diplomacy without a realistic threat of significant action,” he said, “in the event that diplomacy fails, is just empty chatter.” That statement summarizes American foreign policy today.

Theodore Roosevelt was the first U.S. president to see that America had the potential to be a world power. And he knew what type of diplomacy was key to becoming a great nation. Speaking at the Naval War College in Newport on June 2, 1897, Mr. Roosevelt said, “Diplomacy is utterly useless when there is no force behind it. The diplomat is the servant, not the master, of the soldier. … There are higher things in this life than the soft and easy enjoyment of material comfort. It is through strife, or the readiness for strife, that a nation can win greatness.” Mr. Roosevelt made that comment at the dawn of American greatness. And the truth of his statement has never been more evident than in our danger-fraught world: In today’s world, survival is won “through strife, or the readiness for strife.”

Stop and consider the end result of Chamberlain’s form of diplomacy. When the British PM stepped onto the tarmac that September day in 1938, the last thing that had been secured for Europe was peace. The only thing awarded to the Continent that day was time: The people had 11 more months free of conflict—while Hitler had 11 more months of preparation for war.

History tells Americans they ought to fear Obama-style diplomacy. The end result will be the same. Words without action may buy time, but they will not stop the inevitable: the eruption of World War iii.

CRKT’s M21 Series

Written by Tactical-Life.com. Author Archive »

"Big Dog" version for Big Use in any tactical situation

m16-14sfg-left.jpg

After the success of the M16® Special Forces series, CRKT worked with designer Kit Carson to come up with a bigger size and more versatile blade shape of the same knife model to appease requests from Military and LE professionals. The M21™ special forces series is the result.

The blade is similar in shape to the Carson M21, but with the addition of a second Carson Flipper on top, resulting in a true hilt. The blade grind is a deep-bellied spear point with a Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge on the M21-14SF model.

In addition to the original model with InterFrame build and aluminum scales, CRKT is offering this knife as the M21-14SFG with InterFrame build, G10 scales, and their exclusive Veff™ Serrations. A black titanium nitride blade coating protects against corrosion and gives a low-reflectance finish.

The series features CRKT’s patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which provides fully automatic actuation. It immediately turns the folder into a fixed blade when the blade is opened and locked. The safety still allows the quick and smooth one-hand opening and closing that our Carson series is known for. The ambidextrous thumb studs with checkered surfaces provide instant access.

All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing— tip up, tip down, left or right. The M21-14SF series is a true advance in tactical locking liner folders, and is today an even better value.

The M21-14SF is a true advance in tactical locking liner folders, and is also an outstanding value with MSRP of $129.99. The M21-14SFG is an incredible value at only $79.99 MSRP.

Giant New Bombs Threaten U.S. Super-Trucks

By Noah Shachtman EmailNovember 05, 2008 | 7:52:00 AMCategories: Bomb Squad, Ground Vehicles

Cougarexplosion

We keep making bigger, better-armored vehicles, to protect our troops from harm. They keep making bigger bombs.

This latest turn in this seemingly-endless game is happening in Afghanistan, according to U.S. News and World Report. There, "roadside bombs that once weighed 10 to 20 pounds have morphed into multigallon drums packed with 200 to 500 pounds of explosives, which insurgents roll into culverts with wheelbarrows."

Iranian group recruits young 'martyrs' to fight 'global arrogance'

Anti-American mural on wall of former U.S. embassy in Tehran depicts Statue of Liberty with face of skeleton

A terrorist group is distributing flyers in Iran calling for young volunteers to join the Lebanese Hezbollah to carry out suicide operations against the "Global Arrogance" – also known as the United States.

The leaflets promise young recruits that they will join "fighters in the worldwide front against the Global Arrogance," the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI, reported. The term is used by some Iranian officials in reference to the U.S.

On Nov. 1, Tabnak, an Iranian news website identified with Expediency Discernment Council Secretary and former Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander Mohsen Rezai, announced a group has been actively recruiting members in Tehran and large Iranian provinces for Lebanon's Hezbollah. The flyers are labeled "Registration for Membership in the Lebanese Hezbollah " and "Registration for Martyrdom Operations." Each form requires addresses and additional information so recruits may be contacted for the cause.

Tabnak reports a Tehran phone number and address is located on the registration forms. However, the website reported "validity [of the address] could not be confirmed." Martyrdom registration forms reportedly include the name of an organization known to be active in the region, though Tabnak does not reveal its name.

Barack Obama: Under threat

Thursday November 6,2008


A MILITARY-style operation to keep Barack Obama alive was under way yesterday within hours of his victory.

Even as the US President-elect celebrated with more than 160,000 supporters in Grant Park, Chicago, he did so from behind bullet-proof glass 12ft high and 3ins thick.

Mr Obama, wife Michelle, running mate Joe Biden and his wife Jill were under instructions not to stray from the line-of-fire protection zone.

Hamas turns Gaza houses into Hizballah-style camouflaged firing positions

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report

November 5, 2008, 11:12 PM (GMT+02:00)

Site of Grad rocket in Ashkelon

Site of Grad rocket in Ashkelon

The 44 Grad rockets, Qassam missiles and mortar rounds which blasted Israel from Gaza Wednesday, Nov. 5, were fired from houses close to the border fence which Hamas had turned into fortified firing positions. Borrowing Hizballah’s tricks from the 2006 Lebanon war, the Hamas firing squads remove the roofs and cover the top floors with camouflage netting easily removed for attacks.

To spot these heavily-disguised launching pads, round-the-clock aerial observation is necessary.

DEBKAfile’s military analysts report: Two years after the 34-day Hizballah rocket blitz of northern Israel - and five months into an informal truce with Hamas - the IDF is not coping with this tactic.

Furthermore, Wednesday, the civilian front was again abandoned to a heavy missile bombardment. The Israeli Air Force went into action three times to halt the mortar fire on Israeli troops, wiping out two Hamas mortar squads and killing five of its members. But when the missiles began falling on Ashkelon, Sderot and the Eshkol farm region, the air force stayed on the ground.

DEBKAfile’s counter-terror sources further disclose that an anti-tank missile strike against an IDF patrol south of the Kissufim Gaza crossing last Friday, Oct. 31, was not carried out by Hamas, but an al Qaeda cell located in the southern Gaza town of Khan Younes. This cell calls itself Al Qaeda-Palestine.

Senior officers of the Southern Command are sharply critical of defense minister Ehud Barak’s soft, ceasefire-at-any-price policy, our sources report. They say he is only encouraging Hamas to initiate more violations, certain they can get away with it, and is weakening Israel’s hand for recovering its abducted soldier Gilead Shalit.

Barak hit the wrong note when he stressed that Israel wanted to preserve the truce after Hamas dug a 250-meter long tunnel from central Gaza under the Israeli border fence in order to kidnap more Israeli soldiers or civilians. That is no deterrence.

Rush Limbaugh: Time to cleanse Republican Party
Says conservatism not on ballot, calls McCain's whole campaign 'concession speech'


Posted: November 05, 2008

Rush Limbaugh

Radio host Rush Limbaugh, the loudest conservative voice in American politics, today blasted John McCain's presidential campaign as weak and said Barack Obama's election as president is an opportunity to purge the Republican Party of candidates who abandon conservative principles.

"McCain's whole campaign was a concession speech," said Limbaugh in his post-election analysis. "We've now demonstrated to everyone how to lose."

Limbaugh dismissed any notion that victories by Democrats in the White House and Congress meant a repudiation of right-leaning principles.

Limbaugh explained conservatism was not on the ballot.

"We haven't been on the ballot since 1994," he said, noting that if Republicans wanted to win elections, they should not put so-called "moderates" on the ballot.

"The conservative movement does not need to be rebuilt," he said. "We had some people abandon the conservative movement, and they need to be abandoned."

The broadcaster called last night's results "an opportunity for cleansing ... like we haven't seen in a long time."

Israel monitoring Egyptian buildup in the Sinai

TEL AVIV — Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has publicly disavowed an assessment that Egypt has been assembling a military force in the Sinai Peninsula, in violation of the 1979 peace accord.

Officials said thousands of Egyptian troops, many of them under the guise of police

, have been deployed throughout the Sinai.


"Egypt is waiting for the right moment to deploy its army in the Sinai, contrary to the peace agreement," former Strategic Threats Minister Avigdor Lieberman said.

"There are enough signs and enough estimations that the Egyptians are just waiting for their window of opportunity."

Hours after the interview, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert apologized for Lieberman's remarks, Middle East Newsline reported.

COMMENTARY BY HARRY GORMAN


MY FRIEND HARRY IS 93 YEARS OLD

FRIENDS AND FELLOW AMERICANS:

On this fateful Election night when the future of America is being decided, I just got yet another powerful, disturbing video by Dr. Manning -- a most courageous, outspoken -- and truthful man -- and very much BLACK.

Nothing would please me more than having a black family - (Americans-of-African descent -- NOT an African-Americans) -- living next door to me -- an INTACT family -- father, mother, children, to be good neighbors, share my long-time gardening "wisdom" with them, rejoice in the progress their children are making at school and, in general, be -- good neighbors.
The truth, especially in large-city ghettos, is unfortunately different -- and much less pleasant. Watch this disturbing video. Watch it again.

The "job" of getting young black men to understand the JOYS of family life -- true family life, with father the primary breadwinner and mother a stay-at-home Mom, is going to be a hard one -- especially in these difficult economic times.

But, it is a job and duty that ONLY black, married males and females -- mothers and fathers -- can do - by acting as role models.
Is it easy? Of course not. Is it of VITAL IMPORTANCE? . . .Yes. yes and yes.

Global recession has begun

John Kemp — John Kemp is a Reuters columnist. The opinions expressed are his own –

LONDON (Reuters) - Yesterday’s bleak reports on the state of U.S and European manufacturing confirmed that a global recession has already begun.

The Institute of Supply Management (ISM)’s composite business activity indicator plunged for the second month to 38.9 - far below the 50-point threshold dividing expanding activity from a contraction, and the lowest level since September 1982 (see chart https://customers.reuters.com/d/graphics /US_ISM1108.gif).

The 11-point plunge in the index over the last three months (August-October) has been equaled on only four occasions since 1945 (1949-50, 1959-60, 1974 and 1980-81).

It dispels any remaining doubt that the United States has already entered recession - which the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) defines as “a significant decline in economic activity, spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months”.

Palestinians fire upgraded Qassam missiles at Ashkelon, escalating massive barrage

DEBKAfile Special Report

November 5, 2008, 11:13 AM (GMT+02:00)

Israeli tank in action

Israeli tank in action

More than 35 missiles have been fired against all the Israeli towns and villages within range of Gaza since early Wednesday, Nov. 5. Two upgraded Qassam missiles hit Ashkelon’s main street and industrial zone. Three shock victims were hospitalized. Israel’s emergency services in Ashkelon, Sderot, Netivot and the villages around Gaza are on the ready for further attacks but not all the schools within range of Gaza have shelters or fortified classrooms.

The Palestinian barrage, which coincided with Barack Obama’s victory rally in Chicago, followed a battle that erupted Tuesday night when an Israeli armored force crossed 250 meters deep into the Gaza Strip to demolish a Hamas tunnel dug from Al Bureij the Israel military position at the Kissufim border. It was ready for immediate activation as a terror-cum-kidnap device. Six IDF soldiers were injured, 1 seriously, 1 moderately, 4 lightly in the first Israeli incursion of Gaza since the June truce, when Hamas gunmen opened fire from a building housing the tunnel opening. One Hamas gunman was killed in the clash and four injured. Israel troops have withdrawn from Gaza.

The Palestinians then shot 7 mortar rounds into Israel, whereupon an Israeli Air Force helicopter went into action and killed five Palestinian mortar-men.

Israel has termed the operation an isolated incident not intended to terminate the six-month Gaza ceasefire which expires December 18. Hamas denied the tunnel’s existence, called the attack a clear truce violation and threatened reprisals.
