"Osama bin Laden's 2006-07 Book Club Selections" on Marin Peace & Justice Coalition Website

More proof how the "Marin Appeasement & Injustice Coalition" embraces America's enemies.

If you go to their website, on the left hand side about halfway down is a section entitled "Osama bin Laden's 2006-07 Book Club Selections." It reads:

"Book club members were extremely pleased with Osama's first selection, William Blum's ROGUE STATE. We found it to be a concise yet devastating account of U.S.-sponsored skullduggery, assassination, and massacres around the world, all done in the service of U.S. capital and its imperial interests. The book is an excellent response to the question, "Why do they hate us?" (Apparently we were not alone in our appreciation, since Blum's book rocketed up the New York Times bestseller list the moment Osama plucked it from its undeserved obscurity.)"

Other titles listed in the "book club" include Howard Zinn's overtly Marxist A People's History of the United States, which the site claims to show how "people of color, workers, women, immigrants, labor organizers and left activists often get treated just as badly (and for much the same reasons) as the U.S. mistreats the rest of the world's people." Another title listed is David R. Griffin's The New Pearl Harbor. The coalition says is, "...the truth behind the lies about 9-11. This should be an exciting selection for our club, especially if Osama decides to let us in on just who his "silent partners" in Washington really were."

Other titles on "Osama's list" include Lies My Teacher Told Me, by James W. Loewen, a tome that passes off Leftist lies about American history as fact, and Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, by John Perkins.

At the end of the section, it reads "The Osama bin Laden Book Club meeting has been moved! Please contact your local cell leader, Alberto Gonzales or the NSA for further directions."

If this is supposed to be some kind of joke, it isn't funny. It's pretty sick and idiotic if you ask me.

Here are supposed "peace lovers" honoring the scum behind the murder of nearly 3,000 people on September 11, 2001 with a "book club" full of their blame America first literature. Sick also in that they are obviously believers in the "9/11 was an inside job" racket. You creeps at the MPJC think this is funny, why don't you be brave and share your sick idea of a joke to a New York firefighter or policeman who lost a buddy that day? I'm sure the families and young children of 9/11 victims will also be amused by your sense of humor, NOT!

Then again, these people at the MPJC don't care about peace. They're just rabid America haters from the 1960's who still want to "bring the system down." The fact they include a quote from Marxist thug Che Guevara on their website ("Let me say, at the risk of seeming ridiculous, that the true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love.”) proves who these people are and what they believe.

One final note to MPJC members, should you take this section down since it's been noticed, rest assured that I have a PDF copy of your online atrocity already saved.

A Gore Hypocrisy From Corte Madera Appearance

When Al "Chicken Little" Gore came to Corte Madera's Book Passage last July to tell Marin County "The sky is falling," there was a reception for him that benefited the Marin Conservation League (MCL).

Pete Golis of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat discovered that the MCL was opposed to the light rail transit system, also known as the SMART train, which was defeated by North Bay voters last year.

Wasn't the use of light rail public transportation flashed on the screen at the Academy Awards as Melissa Etheridge sang a song from Gore's movie?

More Green hypocrisy!

IJ Watch--Anti-American Venom Passes as "Peace" in "Marin Voice"

Still not convinced the anti-war movement is nothing but anti-Americanism disguised as pacifism? Then check out today's Marin Voice, "Want Peace? Then Get Involved" by Buff (is that his real name?) Whitman-Bradley.

The author is an active participant in a group called the Marin Peace & Justice Coalition, known affectionately on this blog as the Marin Appeasement & Injustice Coalition. Why? The group always acts as apologists for the enemies of America and Israel. Additionally, Whitman-Bradley and several of his ilk also go to San Quentin to protest executions of some of the state's most brutal murderers. In other words, America is always wrong and the criminal, instead of the victim, should be protected.

Buffy proves my point with his first sentence, "So you think the situation in Iraq is horrible? Just wait until we bomb Iran." The rest of his piece is a venomous diatribe (written at fifth grade writing level) towards the United States & President Bush. Nowhere does Whitman-Bradley condemn Islamic terrorism or the Holocaust denial of Iran's president and his threats to annihilate Israel.

Here's some snippets:

"Even now the evil elves in the White House toy shop and right-wing think tanks are working overtime to fabricate apocryphal stories about the current version of yellow-cake uranium and aluminum tubes."

"...But of course, that won't stop Bush and his neo-con handlers, because they are a murder of megalomaniacs (????) who, like other megalomaniacs before them, believe that they can remake and dominate the world by the force of their wills and the might of their armies. (And speaking of armies, I've always found it telling to note that almost none of the neo-con hyper hawks served in the military. I doubt that any of their kids do, either.)"
So, when did you serve in the military Buffy? I'm sure you were too busy burning your draft card on the way to catch The Grateful Dead at Winterland. Amusing how those who support the military but haven't served are supposed to shut up. That rule never applies to those who hate the troops.

"...if our government were genuinely interested in assuring a nuclear-weapons-free Iran (not, of course, a nuke-free Middle East, since Israel is bristling with them), that (diplomacy) is the path we would follow. But what our demonic and delusional government really wants is to destroy Iran, as it has destroyed Iraq, and from the rubble and ashes and boneyards bring a 'new Middle East' into being."

Did I say that Buffy and his group also attacks Israel? Notice also his use of the phrase "neo-con" which, like the term "Zionist," is nothing but a politically correct slur on Jews. Which brings to mind a couple of incidents involving Buffy's Appeasement & Injustice group.

In July 2004, the MPJC sponsored a "Palestine/Israel Film Festival" at Mill Valley's Throckmorton Theater, where most of the speakers and films had a pro-Palestine/anti-Israel point of view.

On May 28, 2005, The Marin IJ wrote how the MPJC was (rightfully) kept out of Mill Valley's Memorial Day Parade. When the group participated in the 2004 parade, one sign stated Ariel Sharon should be tried as a war criminal. Leaflets were also handed out during the parade saying "Jews are responsible for 9/11, " though the group denied passing them out. When the parade chairperson asked for an apology, the letter consisted of "we are sorry" and "a diatribe about Palestine and that Israel was the aggressor."

The only way real peace is achieved is by supporting the men and women of our military, as they hunt down and kill the terrorists who want to bring tyranny back to Iraq. That also includes the possible use of force against the Iranian regime that suppresses its own citizens and funds terrorist organizations (Hamas and Hezbollah) which have killed Americans and Israelis.

Also, you can take a stand locally by counter protesting these supposed peace groups and exposing their allies like Code Pinko, who’ve aided and abetted the terrorists in Iraq.

Hanging Soldier Effigy “Artist” Says Soldiers Should Be Tried For War Crimes

Stephen Pearcy of Sacramento (responsible for the sick display above) hates the military so much he wants them tried for war crimes.

Remember Stephen Pearcy? He’s the “artist” and attorney who hung an American soldier in effigy with a sign “Bush Lied, I Died.” He’s also one of Cindy “I wouldn’t spit on the troops” Sheehan’s friends.

He took his hatred of the military to another level. Pearcy scribbled an anti-troop screed in Sacramento News & Review last Thursday implying that soldiers serving in Iraq should be charged with war crimes.

“In addition to holding President George W. Bush and the U.S. Congress accountable for the illegal occupation of Iraq, American troops must also be prepared to accept responsibility. We’re all presumed to know the law. If we accept that fundamental legal presumption, then those of us who claim that the war is illegal must also acknowledge that the troops are unexcused aiders and abettors.

Lt. Ehren Watada’s case is a good example. Watada’s position is that he has a duty to refuse orders to deploy to Iraq because those orders effectively command him to pursue an illegal war. Watada correctly understands that obeying those orders could subject him to war-crime charges under a more just administration (which should try George W. Bush first).

Publicly available information about the Iraq invasion has become so plentiful over the last several years that reasonable people contemplating service in the U.S. military should know that people throughout the world regard participation in the occupation as tantamount to aiding and abetting in mass murder, fraud, human-rights violations, and international war crimes. By now, all of the troops should recognize this, and ignorance is no excuse.”

Pearcy goes further. Echoing Democrat Senator Dick Turbin, he compares the men and women in the military to Nazis who followed the orders of their commanders.

“From a legal standpoint, obeying Bush’s orders is akin to the Nazi soldiers who obeyed Hitler’s orders. And we know from the Nuremberg Trials that the “just following orders” excuse is invalid. Watada’s case suggests that we should question all troops’ willingness to follow their illegal orders.

Suggesting troop-responsibility for the illegal war is unpopular, but it also would have been unpopular during World War II for a German citizen to suggest that Nazi troops be held accountable for obeying their illegal orders. At the end of the day, it’s really no different.”

First, Lt. Watada has no excuse in disobeying orders. You don’t pick and choose what orders you obey in the military. If he didn’t realize that, then he had no business signing up. He should have signed up for the Peace Corps instead.

Second, the Iraq war is not “illegal” as Pearcy claims. It is only “illegal” in the minds of Leftists who are always the first to attack America and act as apologists for our enemies.

Finally, the Sacramento News & Review calls Mr. Pearcy a “peace activist.” He is anything but a “peace activist.” He is a stone-hearted, anti-American that hates the men and women of the military who fight and die for his right to spout treasonous garbage like the aforementioned piece, as well as hang them in effigy.

And these people have the nerve to claim they “support the troops.”

Cindy Sheehan Goes Berzerk Over "A Gathering Of Eagles"

Nancy Pelosi's unofficial advisor on Iraq, Cindy Sheehan, in Sept. 2005 (photo from Nancy Pelosi's website)

Just found this on FreeRepublic.com (h/t tgslTakoma). Cindy Sheehan, a.k.a "Mama Moonbat" is blowing a gasket over "A Gathering of Eagles" and Move America Forward, who are headed to Washington D.C. to prevent the anti-American crowd from desecrating the Vietnam War Memorial. She's blaming Karl Rove for it all and for orchestrating the counter-protest on March 17th.

Sheehan mouthed off in a posting on afterdowningstreet.com (excerpts follow).

"...the willing tools of the Republican killing machine, including Karl Rove, with whom they have formed an unholy alliance, Move America Forward, are helping Rove whip a group called “Gathering of Eagles” into a frenzy over something that is not and was not ever going to occur. Okay, I am not sure that Karl Rove started this particular pile of horse pucky, but it sure has his stank all over it, so we are going to pretend for the sake of argument that it was Karl, or someone just like him. BushCo employees Roves like McDonald’s employs fry cooks.

....The Rove backed tools of hatred and misguided propaganda are saying that in the March 17th march on the Pentagon that I am participating in which is sponsored by A.N.S.W.E.R. is planning on desecrating the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, by spitting on it, or throwing paint on it. What a monumental load of Reich-wing horse pucky!

... Recently, there was a lie-filled article floating around the Reich-wing pucky-o-sphere which claimed that I threw paint on Congress on a day when I was 3000 miles away in Los Angeles. Do Reich-wingers ever tell the truth? Is honesty even in their genes? Is the word “fact” in their vocabulary?

The so-called Gathering of Eagles says on their web site: “We will not allow them to spit on Iraqi Veterans again (itals mine).” First of all, it is not “Iraqi” veteran that is like saying “Vietnamese” veteran. It is “Iraq” veteran. Secondly, I have never spat on any veteran. I know no one who has, or who would spit on a veteran. Saying this is just pure propaganda horse pucky and the small minded people that are manipulating proud veterans with these deceptions should be ashamed of themselves.

Just relax, OUR Wall will not be desecrated and if it is, it won’t be by us.

If anyone has a problem with the truth, it's Cindy and her anti-American brigades. For the record, I don't recall anyone in the blogosphere ever accusing Cindy of "throwing paint on Congress." However, some of the so-called "peace crowd" spray painted the steps of the Capitol last month after their protest. For more on the desecration of war memorials by the anti-war crowd, see Melanie Morgan's latest column in WorldNetDaily. It was an amputee Iraqi War Vet, Joshua Sparling, as well as witnesses, who detailed how your friends in the "peace movement" spit at him during last month's protest. What about the creep in Fresno who said the following to the mother of a fallen soldier:
"How many people lost someone in the military? Well bless his heart. Did they go
out and kill and rape and sodomize some children in front of their parents?"

That was outside your appearance in Fresno. Are you proud of the company you keep, Cindy?

You are the one who is proud to hang around with dictators like Hugo Chavez. The group who is leading the protest, A.N.S.W.E.R., is nothing but a front group for the Communist styled Workers World Party whose leader, Ramsey Clark, was one of Saddam Hussein's defense attorneys. So think about that the next time you call any of us "Reich Wing."

Oh, one more thing. The Vietnam Memorial Wall doesn't belong to you or your cohorts. That sacred area belongs to the families of those fallen heroes and to real Americans who don't turn their back on the military. It is not the place for traitors like you, "Jihad" Jane Fonda and Ramsey Clark to use as a pulpit for your anti-American, anti-military bile.

IJ Watch--Is San Rafael Teen Rapist An Illegal Alien? IJ Avoids The Issue

Friday's Marin IJ reported the setencing of Jorge Ek-Luna, who received a 29 years to life term for raping a 15 year old San Rafael High School freshman on February 13, 2006.

The normal sentence is 25 years, but Judge Terrence Boren added four additional years because Ek-Luna used a broken bottle to threaten his victim with.

"He told me if I was not quiet he was going to kill me," said his victim when she took the stand.

The convicted rapist could be eligible for parole in 21 years.

The story did mention that Ek-Luna is a 27 year old Salvadoran and needed an interpreter to have the proceedings translated.

Why did the IJ not address if Ek-Luna was in the United States illegally?

Simple, the paper has an editorial position that supports "immigration reform" (amnesty). Remember their coverage of the pro-illegal alien amnesty rallies last year?

Yet Ek-Luna will become another inmate in California's already overcrowded prison system. One in which Gov. Arnold Swarzenkennedy is considering early prisoner release for some non-violent offenders due to overcrowding. How many of prisoners in California are illegal aliens? According to the website for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), "California's illegal alien inmate population had increased by 31 percent from the 30,785 inmate years in FY'99 to 40,225 inmate years in FY'02, while (federal) compensation declined by seven percent."

And they do the jobs American's won't do?

Cheney Tells Truth About Democrats; Pelosi Whines To Bush

A big "Way To Go!" to Vice President Dick Cheney for telling the truth about House Democrats today, that they are doing the bidding of al-Queda.

"I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the Al Qaeda strategy. The Al Qaeda strategy is to break the will of the American people ... try to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit," Cheney told ABC News.

Pelosi went to the microphones in San Francisco to whine like a little girl, saying the vice president's comments were "beneath the dignity of the debate we're engaged in and a disservice to our men and women in uniform, whom we all support. And you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to call the president and tell him I disapprove of what the vice president said. It has no place in our debate."

Are you saying you support those same troops which you and Jackoff Murtha plan to deny funding, equipment and training to? Who the hell are you to call the President up and complain, especially after the nasty rhetoric coming from your side of the isle, which I will not hesitate to label as unpatriotic and un-American.
Hopefully, the President won't take your call.

IJ Watch--9-11 Truther's Pickup Truck Crashes Into Fountain--What The IJ Didn't Tell You About Him

John Jenkel of Graton (outside Sebastopol) was running late to make the public comments time at the Marin County Board of Supervisor's meeting yesterday. He was in such a hurry that he claims he forgot to set the parking brake on his Ford F-250 pickup, which rolled down Civic Center Drive into a water fountain outside the Marin County Civic Center.

The Marin IJ called Jenkel "a North Bay anti-war activist" and described him as "a quirky, charismatic man who promotes government conspiracy theories and advocates what he calls 'the truth.'"" Of course, the IJ never met an anti-war activist it didn't like.

That's a mild way of describing Mr. Jenkel, as he's more than just an "anti-war activist." What IJ Reporter Nancy Isles Nation didn't write was how he is a kooky, obviously paranoid anti-American government conspiracy theorist. He frequents public meetings in Marin and Sonoma Counties with paid ($12 per hour) entourage in tow. He calls himself "da 9-11 Bounty Hunter," leading what he calls "'Da 9-11 Truth Campaign' To End 59 Years Of Mass Murder For Corporate Gain and Fascism." Here's a sample of his rantings. He has accused Sonoma County Supervisor Mike Kerns of leaving a threatening message on his voicemail. His neighbors were so annoyed by the honking from motorists reacting to the sign on his ranch property "Honk for Bush Behind Bars" that one put up a "Please DON'T Honk" sign. Some even think Jenkel may be a quasi cult leader of his paid disciples. Jenkel told the IJ such claims are "pure nonsense."

Some of Jenkel's whacked out theories include that the 2000 Election in Florida was rigged and Bush knows more about 9/11 than he has led on. Like most other liberals, he thinks the War in Iraq is more about oil than terrorism (does that explain Jenkel's gas guzzling Ford pick up truck?). But his weirdest (and this one is a laugh riot) theory is one which George Bush is a puppet of Vice President Dick Cheney and (get ready!)........former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown (?????), both of whom he claims run the United States.

This is your brain on drugs. Any questions?

No Blood For Oil, except for my large pickup truck of course! (Photo source, Marin IJ)

Liberal Hypocrisy on Affordable Housing in Tiburon Hits Pages of USA Today

In the story, "Affordable Homes Draw Flak in Marin," John Ritter of USA Today examines the hypocritical liberals in Tiburon who are opposed to the construction of four Habitat for Humanity houses.

Habitat for Humanity and Marin County seem like a perfect fit: A well-regarded builder of affordable housing meets a progressive (read: socialist) locale acutely short of homes for low-income and middle-class workers.

...Some (Tiburon) neighbors worry that houses built by Habitat for Humanity would degrade values of their $1 million to $2 million homes, some with views of San Francisco Bay. They say the houses wouldn't stay affordable once original buyers sell them in this high-dollar real estate market.

"We're painted as Marin liberals getting our karma leveled by Habitat for Humanity," says Bill Duane, who lives near the 16-acre site where Habitat's houses and three others would be built. "Habitat usually goes into blighted neighborhoods and builds something that enhances values. These houses won't enhance the neighborhood."

The truth hurts, doesn't it Mr. Duane? What were seeing here is nothing but liberal hypocrisy in Marin County, CA. These are the same people who will support affirmative action, amnesty for illegal aliens, environmentalism and just about any other Leftist cause. However, God forbid some of the common folk should get housing in their neighborhoods. These Tiburon neighbors remind me of the bigots who petitioned to keep black families from buying a house in their neighborhood.

How will the affordable homes enhance the neighborhood? Maybe the fireman who saves your house from fire will live in one of those homes. Or the policeman who catches the thief who broke into your home or car? How about the person who teaches your children? As for the traffic excuse, it's a red herring. Check out Marin Real Estate Bubble for some photos of the neighborhood. The road in question is, according to the blogger, wide by Marin standards.

Do you notice though that these elitist, hot tub liberals have no opposition to the bigger houses proposed to be built? Amazing, isn't it? Especially when they're sitting on a nest egg. Values in Tiburon have gone up 203% (according to Zillow.com) over the last ten years. Not only can they make a mint on their homes, they can also keep Marin their own exclusive community. It's not just in Tiburon either. Propose to build any housing and you meet up with a bunch of "not in my backyarders" who rattle off concerns about property values or "we need more open space." When I lived in Central Marin, I used to see bumper stickers which read "It's Our Town, Let's Slow It Down." Marin's reputation as a county populated by a bunch of selfish, "it's all about me" types is well deserved.

And these are the people who have the nerve to claim conservatives and Republicans are "only for the rich." What hypocrites!

News Flash For Treasonous Dems--Americans Want To Win In Iraq

A recent survey by Public Opinion Strategies of Alexandria, VA shows that, despite the rhetoric of the Democrats, Americans don't want to lose in Iraq.

Here's a sampling of what the survey said, from The Drudge Report:

The survey shows Americans want to win in Iraq, and that they understand Iraq is the central point in the war against terrorism and they can support a U.S. strategy aimed at achieving victory, said Neil Newhouse, a partner in POS. The idea of pulling back from Iraq is not where the majority of Americans are.

By a 53 percent - 46 percent margin, respondents surveyed said that Democrats are going too far, too fast in pressing the President to withdraw troops from Iraq.

By identical 57 percent - 41 percent margins, voters agreed with these statements: I support finishing the job in Iraq, that is, keeping the troops there until the Iraqi government can maintain control and provide security and the Iraqi war is a key part of the global war on terrorism.

Also, by a 56 percent - 43 percent margin, voters agreed that even if they have concerns about his war policies, Americans should stand behind the President in Iraq because we are at war. "

Are you listening, Nancy "Queen of Mean" Bella-Pelosi, "Dirty" Harry Reid, Lynn Woolsey? Heed the words of one of the greatest Americans below. His statement is as true now as it was then.
"Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American."

Cindy Sheehan Speaks At "Impeachment Summit" Co-Sponsored by Ex-Weather Underground Members

Cindy Sheehan will be a speaker at an "Emergency Summit" held in New York this weekend by several Leftist groups who are calling for the impeachment of President Bush for supposed "war crimes." (thanks to Kristinn at FreeRepublic for finding this)

But what is noteworthy are the co-sponsors for the event. Among the usual suspects, such as AfterDowningStreet.org, Green Party of the United States; Democrats.com, Code Pinko, Progressive Democrats of America (Lynn Woolsey and Barbara Lee serve on its advisory board), are Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, former members of the terrorist group Weather Underground.

For those who don't know, the Weather Underground (or Weathermen) were a branch off of the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) responsible for the bombing of the U.S. Capitol building and the Pentagon. The Weather Underground also claimed responsibility for several bombings across the nation, including an October 1970 bombing at the Marin County Courthouse. Three Weathermen died in a 1970 explosion at a Greenwich Village "bomb factory" putting together a bomb intended to go off at a non-commissioned officers dance at Fort Dix. The bomb was packed with nails for the intention of maximum casualties upon detonation.

Ayers is now a Distinguished (?) Professor of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is hardly repentant of his violent radical past. In the lede a New York Times article published (ironically) on September 11, 2001 ("No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"), Ayers said "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough."

They may not be setting off explosives, but these radicals are still loyal to their ideas of overthrowing the government of the United States. This is the face of the so-called anti-war movement which the MSM refuses to show America.

Join The Caravan To D.C. And Rally In Support of our Troops

The anti-American, anti-military moonbats will be gathering again in Washington D.C. on March 17th for another one of their so-called "peace rallies."

There is a countervoice to "Jihad" Jane Fonda being planned for that day. Our friends at Move America Forward are sponsoring the “THESE COLORS DON’T RUN” national caravan. It will depart on the morning of March 8th from San Francisco, going across the state and nation. The caravan will stop in several major cities across America for pro-troop rallies.

More information follows below from the press release.

Leading the caravan will be Blue Star Mother Deborah Johns, whose son William is serving his 3rd tour of duty in Iraq; Gold Star Mother Debra Argel Bastian whose son, Derek, died in Operation Iraqi Freedom; Gold Star Father Joseph Williams whose son, Michael, died in Operation Iraqi Freedom; and John Ubaldi – a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan).

At each rally, participants will bring American flags – either a homemade one they created themselves, a store-bought flag, or a flag that has a special significance, history or meaning. The flags will be collected at each stop and brought to Washington, D.C. where they will be displayed to create a giant “Flag City” on Saturday, March 17, 2007.

The participants of Move America Forward’s “THESE COLORS DON’T RUN” caravan will join with several other patriotic and pro-troop organizations for a giant patriotic rally in Washington, D.C. on March 17th. Among the participating groups MAF is proud to support in this display of patriotism are: Free Republic, Gathering of Eagles, Vets for Victory, Rolling Thunder and Vets For Truth.

“There’s been way too much negativity and doom-and-gloom mentality in this nation about our nation, our values and the missions our troops are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Melanie Morgan, Chairman of Move America Forward.

“We’re sick and tired of the shameful subversiveness of the anti-war crowd and we decided it’s time to give Americans a chance to respond with a positive, uplifting and patriotic response,” Morgan said.

For more updates, please check Move America Forward's website. Join the caravan to D.C. to take a stand for our troops. After today, we need to make sure our voices are heard loud and clear.

An Act of Treason--Democrat-led House Votes To Embolden The Terrorists

Somewhere in a cave today, Osama bin Laden and Ayman al Zawahiri are smiling.

Their efforts to defeat America in Iraq and the War on Terrorism were encouraged today by a Democrat led House of Representatives who (with a little help from a few pantywaist Republicans) approved the non-binding "Embolden the Terrorist Act of 2007," to express disapproval for President Bush sending 20,000 reinforcements to Iraq.

Democrats crafted this resolution as a rebuke towards the President. They've done more than that. They've sent a message to our Islamofascsist enemies: we are divided as a nation and will soon run away in retreat. Likewise, they're sending a message to our brave men and women overseas that the Congress of the United States does not support them.

I’ve never been so outraged as I am today by this group of political hacks who put their party or political careers ahead over the security of American citizens. Today's vote should erase any doubt about what the modern day Democrat party has become. They are nothing but a Party of Treason so consumed by resentment over Bill Clinton's impeachment and Election 2000 that they are willing aid in the defeat of the U.S. military. All for the sake of a political victory over President Bush. If these people fought the terrorists with as much vigor as they fight President Bush, maybe this war would be over already.

Instead, we have Left-wing ideologues like, Nancy Pelosi, who represents the most anti-Military city in America, San Francisco. When Bill Clinton was President, there wasn't a bomb he dropped that she didn't support. How that has changed under the presidency of George W. Bush. Clinton bombs are GOOD; Bush bombs are BAD. Pelosi, along with her right hand man, "Jihad" Jackoff Murtha, are now threatening a "slow bleed" strategy of cutting off funds, as well as troops for the war. This is outright sabotage of our war effort against an enemy and ideology that attacked our nation five and a half years ago. What's the matter Nancy? Are you throwing a temper tantrum at the Pentagon because you didn't get your flying palace?

Though he has been courageous and steadfast in taking the fight to the enemy, I'm disappointed that President Bush refuses to fight the political enemy in America. This "new tone" bull manure of Bush’s has to STOP! That tactic may have worked in Texas with a class act like the late Bob Bullock, but it won't work against mean partisan vipers like Pelosi and Murtha. Mr. President, please grow a pair and stand up to these traitors! They don't belong in Congress; instead they belong in a federal penitentiary on treason charges.

I'm sure some lib reading this will say, "Well, there were Republicans that voted for this." That doesn't make it right! We don't need Sunshine Patriots who will only rally behind the troops when the poll numbers are up. If you live in a district with a Republican who voted for this resolution, I have one suggestion. Vote their asses out in the next primary! Get a solid conservative to run against these RINOs.

A note to the Democrats and RINO's who voted for this act. The blood of our troops, innocent Iraqis and any Americans killed in future terrorist attacks will forever stain your hands!

And if you want to question the Democrat's patriotism, you have my permission!

WoolseyWatch--Urging Surrender In Iraq For The Sake of The Children & Veterans

As she promised Monday, Lynn Woolsey marched again to the floor of the House of Representatives in support of the Democrat's "Embolden the Terrorists in Iraq" resolution. In her speech (courtesy of the Congressional Record) she called President Bush's plan to deploy additional troops "an act of staggering arrogance for the President" and had the nerve to blame our presence in Iraq for the violence.

Furthermore, Woolsey used returning Iraq War veterans and "the children" as pawns in her support for the Democrat's treasonous resolution, scheduled for a vote tomorrow.

"Mr. Speaker, we must never, ever forget what war does to bodies, to minds, to families, to communities and to the human soul. The victims of war are not pieces to be moved around on a chess board. They are our fellow citizens in a global village that gets smaller every day....I fear most of all for our children. ``War,'' said Martin Luther King, Jr., ``is a poor chisel to carve out tomorrow.'' Mr. Speaker, tomorrow belongs to our children. So, for their sake, we must find alternatives to war. We must protect America by relying not on our basest impulses, but on the most honorable and humane of American values, our love of freedom, our desire for peace, our capacity for global leadership, and our compassion for the people of the world."

If Lynn Woolsey is so concerned about "what war does to bodies, to minds, to families" why is it that she is proud to be affiliated with the group Code Pinko who (as illustrated earlier) not only gives material support to the enemy, but leads protests of the war outside Water Reed Hospital in Washington D.C. where wounded military members and their families are tortured by Code Pinko's anti-American, anti-military rhetoric.

Who will suffer if Woolsey and the Democrats force surrender in Iraq? It will be the future generation, our children whom Welfare Mom Woolsey claims to be so concerned about. They will be the ones who will have to go back to the Middle East and fight an even bloodier war, plus face an Iraqi population who will resent us for leaving them to suffer atrocities at the hands of the terrorists.

Liberals always talk about the future generation having to pay debts incurred by our decisions today. Woolsey's desire to see America defeated in Iraq will be a much greater debt in lives and treasure that is being paid now.

WoolseyWatch--Support The Troops By Surrendering To The Terrorists

According to the Congressional Record, Lynn Woolsey stated her support Monday for the Democrat's "Embolden The Terrorists In Iraq" Act as "a very important first step." She also used her floor speech to urge further action against the war, promoting her "Surrender Iraq in Six Months Bill" (H.R. 508).

Woolsey said:
"We owe it to our brave men and brave women in uniform and to the Iraqi people to bring our troops home now. Let us be honest, the Iraqis don't want us there. They view us as an occupying force."

How many Iraqi citizens has she spoken to? For some perspective, check out Michelle Malkin's commentary on her recent trip to Iraq. She asked one Iraqi man, Rasul if American troops should withdraw. Rasul shook his head and told her, "No, no, you can't leave."

Woolsey continued:
"...We can assist them; but in the end, Iraq must belong to the Iraqi people. Having learned from our past, we will never turn our backs on the returning troops, those who have been put in an unimaginable position."

No Lynn, you and your party obviously hasn't learned from the past. First of all, you have allied yourself with groups like Code Pinko who (in late 2004) gave $600,000 in aid to Fallujah, Iraq, a terrorist hotbed where four American contractors were murdered, their bodies burned and hung from a bridge. Last month, some of the people you spoke to at the supposed "anti-war" rally in Washington D.C. spit at an amputee Iraqi war vet, Joshua Sparling, and spray painted the steps of the Capitol building.

Finally, Lynn, if you and the surrender monkeys in the Democrat party get your wish to leave Iraq, not only would that lead to a bloodbath similar to the Killing Fields of Southeast Asia, but it would also fuel terrorist propaganda and recruiting for Islamic terrorists, who would cite what Osama bin Laden said about America in 1998.

“We have seen in the last decade the decline of the American government and the weakness of the American soldier who is ready to wage Cold Wars and unprepared to fight long wars. This was proven in Beirut when the Marines fled after two explosions. It also proves they can run in less than 24 hours, and this was also repeated in Somalia. ...After a few blows, they ran in defeat and America forgot about all the hoopla and media propaganda after leaving the Gulf War and destroying infrastructure ...about being the world leader, and the leader of the new world order. After a few blows, they forgot about this title and left, they forgot about this title and left, dragging their corpses and their shameful defeat and stopped using such titles."

Obama Insults Sacrifices of Those Killed In Iraq. Calls Them "Wasted Lives"

Found this clip on Michelle Malkin's site, as well as LGF.

Barak Hussein Obama, Democratic presidential contender, said the following yesterday at Iowa State University.

"We ended up launching a war that should have never been authorized and should have never been waged and to which we have now spent $400 billion and has seen over 3,000 lives of the bravest young Americans wasted."

Also today, the House of Representatives introduced the "Embolden Islamofacism Resolution" today which states the following (courtesy of Victory Caucus).

(1) Congress and the American people will continue to support and protect the members of the United States Armed Forces who are serving or who have served bravely and honorably in Iraq; and

(2) Congress disapproves of the decision of President George W. Bush announced on January 10, 2007, to deploy more than 20,000 additional United States combat troops to Iraq.

The language in this "non-binding" resolution is oxymoronic at best. The only thing this resolution will do is embolden the terrorists in Iraq, as well as the Iranian regime to continue stirring up trouble there. It DOES NOT support the troops.

Elected Democrats clearly don't give a damn about supporting the troops. When they're not calling them uneducated (as John Kerry did) or comparing them to "Nazis or Soviets in their gulags" (like Dick Turbin), the sacrifices of our military is used by Democrats as a political pawn against the Commander in Chief.

The only way the sacrifice of those killed in Iraq will become a waste is when Obama and the rest of the Democrat Party find a way not just to surrender in Iraq, but the War on Terror as well.

Anti-Americanism & Anti-Semitism--The Plague of San Francisco

Yesterday, news appeared that Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel was attacked after a speech at a San Francisco hotel last week by a Holocaust denier who'd been stalking him for weeks.

At San Francisco State University, College Republicans are facing punishment ranging from a warning, suspension or expulsion for “hateful religious intolerance," "incivility" and "attempts to incite violence." How did that happen? At an October anti-terrorism rally, the College Republicans stomped on homemade flags of the terrorist groups Hamas & Hezbollah. Both flags have the name of Allah incorporated in them.

Think of it, the flags of Islamic terrorist groups who have killed American citizens are now protected symbols at SFSU. I'm sure the desecration of the American flag would certainly be considered "protected speech" at that institution of lower learning.

In Liberal San Francisco, attacks on America, its military and the State of Israel have become a plague in a town which prides itself about its "tolerance." We've seen it as the City Supervisors gave a thumbs down to the USS Iowa as a floating museum (including one supervisor stating on nationwide TV how America didn't need a military) to voters banning military recruiters from school campuses and the JROTC banned by the school board.

For all the outrage from SFSU officials towards the College Republicans, those same administrators didn't lift a finger to help the Republicans after they were attacked in 2004 by pro-Palestinian and Leftist protesters. In an article on FrontPage Magazine, Lee Kaplan wrote that signs stating “Zionism is Hitler,” “Bush is Hitler,” “Racists and Murderers Off Campus,” “Republicans Off Campus,” and also “RepubliKKKans Off Campus” were present. One female member of the Republicans was also threatened by a protester who told her “Watch what happens when the police aren’t around, b---h!”

That's not all. Check out these videos from the SFSU Republicans website, including one from an anti-military protest in 2005 where Air Force and the Army Corps of Engineers
were harassed. In 2002, the New Republic (hardly a conservative publication) noted how pro-Israel demonstrators were taunted by counterprotesters who yelled epithets such as "Hitler didn't finish the job" and "F--k the Jews." Where was the outrage from the administration at SFSU then?

There’s more wrong in The City by the Bay than a mayor who has a problem with the sauce and the ladies.

One Week Later, DNC Silence on Imam Is Deafening

One week ago, at the Democrat National Committee's Winter Meeting, they were led in prayer by Imam Husham Al-Husainy. With Howard "the Duck" Dean by his side, this Imam prayed for an end to the war, oppression and occupation, a veiled swipe at America and the War in Iraq.

Despite the radical roots of this Imam, such as his support of Hezbollah, as well as calling America "oppressors & occupiers" in his prayer, there was no condemnation or outrage from the DNC.

Yesterday, Al-Husainy appeared on Sean Hannity's radio show and refused to acknowledge Hezbollah as a terrorist organization or Iranian dictator (and Holocaust denier) Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as an anti-Semite.

Instead, Al-Husainy melted down and hung up on Hannity while on the air. (Click to listen)

Sidenote, the footage appearing on Little Green Footballs of Howard Dean shaking hands with this Imam after the prayer seems to have disappeared.

The fact that the leadership of the DNC, as well as elected Democrats have been silent on the tone of this prayer or the Imam's ties with radical Islam speaks volumes in how low the Democrats will go in order to politically defeat President Bush over the war.

WAAAAH!!!! I WANT MY JET!!!! -- Pelosi's Flying Palace Tantrum

After promising "The most ethical Congress," House Speaker Nancy Bella-Pelosi is demanding that she be given the Air Force version of a Boeing 757 to take her from Washington D.C. to San Francisco.

The plane is much bigger than the C20 used by former Speaker Dennis Hastert. The C32 (757) is used by the Vice President primarily as Air Force Two. It carries a crew of 16, has a bedroom, entertainment center and conference room. There's 42 business class seats on board. It would cost you and I about $300,000 per trip to fly Grandma Bella-Pelosi and her entourage from D.C. to S.F.
What Nancy the "Queen of Mean" wants is a flying palace paid for by taxpayers at her disposal. She's screaming "sexism," and I'm outraged that Tony Snow and the White House was defending her in this mess.

In San Francisco, the military is given the middle finger. No ROTC, no recruiters on campus, no floating museum for the USS Iowa. Yet Pelosi, who represents this anti-military city, is demanding use of this large jet. To a San Francisco liberal, the military must only good for one thing; personal transportation.

Let's look at the facts. San Francisco is 2,442 miles by air from Washington D.C. The C20 (Gulfstream III see factsheet) flies 4,250 miles (3,698 nautical miles). The C20H (long-range version) flies 4,850 miles (4,220 nautical miles). Then there's the Gulfstream C37 (factsheet) which flies 6,300 miles (5,500 nautical miles).

Pelosi doesn't need the 757. Her request shows nothing but the arrogance of herself as well as her Democrat party, who always claim to champion "the little people." If she wants a jet, take a C20 or C37.

Or, she could always fly Hillary's broom back and forth to San Francisco.

IJ Watch--Continues Anti-War Bias with Ex-Soldier Who "Doesn't Think Most Americans Realize the Destruction America Is Involved In All Over the World"

Phil Dynan, author of the fictional book on the Iraq War entitled "Brother Eagle, Sister Moon" and former secret ops in Ethiopia, obviously has an axe to grind against America.

This is how he responded to a question by the Marin IJ's Rick Polito in a story entitled, "Reality of war: Authors Share Views on Responsibility for the Carnage"

"...Two weeks later, I hear a knock on my door and think it's this guy. I open the door, and there is a Somali woman and she's just shaking. She's got my stories in her hand. She proceeded to attack me, push me up against the wall. She said 'You did it. You ruined my family.' It turned out her father was a lawyer and they lived in Mogadishu, and she knew what our armed forces were doing at the time in Somalia. She blamed me for it because I was part of the unit that caused the destruction of the Somali government. I don't think most Americans realize the destruction America is involved in all over the world."

I was livid after reading that quote. So does he consider defeating Nazism and Imperial Japan, as well as defeating Communism part of "America's destruction?" What about freeing almost 50 million Muslims from the brutal oppression of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Saddam Hussein's dictatorship in Iraq?

Dynan and Penny Rock, a former nurse during the Vietnam War, will appear at Habitat Books in Sausalito on Friday evening, where they will obviously wring their hands over (in their minds) the supposed evils America has inflicted on the world. If you have any doubts about that statement, look at Dynan's website for more anti-Americanism. He has a promo from Not In Our Name (a supposed "anti-war" group founded by Revolutionary Communist Party member C. Clark Kissinger) which reads "End The Occupation U.S. Out of Iraq Now" Below that, he writes the following:

"Support our troops and get out of Iraq now! Bush and his administration lied to start the war and continue to lie to keep our troops there. As a veteran and recipient of numerous Awards for Patriotism (I question that! M.I.M.), I feel we need to depart Iraq immediately and remove Bush from office. 100,000 people, including over 3000 American troops and 10,000 Iraqi children, have died during the illegal occupation of Iraq. Over 150,000 of our young people have been treated by the VA for wounds and injuries sustained in Iraq and Afghanistan."

In Polito's story, Dynan, who was Peace & Freedom Party candidate for California Assembly in 2006, also said :

"..Most people haven't experienced it (war). So when they sit in Congress and say lets vote $214 billion to destroy another country, it doesn't equate for them. They think it's an abstract concept...My opinion is that if Americans were actually exposed to war, if they were exposed to that kind of destruction, they would change their minds. I tell you, the kids coming back (from Iraq) sure have a different opinion. I used to think that the financial costs of this war would change people's minds. We're spending $200 million a day on this war. It impacts everything we do."

Well Mr. Dynan I have news for you. Americans were exposed to war when it came to our shores in an unprovoked attack on September 11, 2001. We saw images of planes crashing into buildings, people jumping from 110 stories to escape the flames and intense heat and two of our mightiest structures tumble to the ground, killing thousands. These were images most of us never imagined we'd view on television, let alone in person. What about all these “kids back from Iraq” (they’re men and women, by the way) who keep re-enlisting for second and third tours? No one’s making them go. They choose to go because they believe in the mission and know a loss there will impact what happens here.

This is the face of the anti-war Left. They align themselves with the enemies of our nation and have the nerve to call their hatred of America "patriotism." They're anything but patriotic.

Polito's piece also shows the continuing bias of the IJ in favor of the unpatriotic Left. Because when it's good news from Iraq, the IJ calls it "positive spin." That is, when they're not writing how people join the military for lack of "economic options."

IJ Watch--Local Global Warming Hysteria; Parts of Marin Underwater in a Century

If you live in parts of Sausalito, Mill Valley, Tiburon, the Hamilton Field area of Novato and the area around Highway 37, you'll be underwater in a century, according to the front page of last Thursday's Marin IJ.

"This is not conjecture, it's happening here. This isn't theory, it's realty," said Will Travis, executive director of the San Francisco Bay Conservation & Development Commission. The commission projects the water in San Francisco Bay will rise a meter over the next century or sooner, due to "global warming." Travis stated the water in the bay has already risen seven inches since 1900.

The question is, where did Mr. Travis and his commission get his facts and statistics to base their claims? Nowhere in the IJ story was there any dissenting voices of skepticism to these claims. This is irresponsible journalism, but not a surprise considering the far-Left slant of the Marin IJ.

Everyday, we're being battered like a prizefighter about global warming. Al Gore can yell at the top of his lungs that George W. Bush betrayed America and plays on fears of global terrorism. However, Gore is the one playing the hypocrite, as he runs around the nation and the world like Chicken Little, yelling "The sky is falling! The sky is falling!" His fearmongering has earned him millions of dollars and an Academy Award nomination for his propaganda film "An Inconvenient Lie." That film has been shown to Marin schoolchildren through the California Film Institute, as well as church groups. And is there any presentation of the opposing viewpoint?

It's not just the movies either. Even a cable channel dedicated to giving weather forecasts has joined the "sky is falling" chorus. See Melanie Morgan's excellent expose in WorldNetDaily Con Job at the Weather Channel and her follow up this past Friday, Death by Liberal Activism.

For all this talk about how it's getting warmer, didn't we have freezing conditions for a little over a week last month? That's the tip of the skepticism iceberg I have about the claims of the Chicken Little crowd (I have plenty of other reasons, but will save those for a later post). Among others, here's some links from the Oregon Institute of Science & Medicine which take on the global warming claims (hat tip to Don).

At a time when we are facing a dangerous and determined enemy, the chorus of Chicken Little's are distracting us from the real danger we face. After all, it wasn't global warming that killed nearly 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001.

And that's "An Inconvenient Truth" the global warming crowd, their political allies and media champions cannot accept.

WoolseyWatch--Marin County Sheriff Questions Woolsey's Cop Killer Vote, Receives No Reply

In Saturday's IJ, All About Marin section, Brad Breithaupt wrote how Marin County Sheriff Robert Doyle, a Democrat, wrote Lynn Woolsey questioning her no vote on a resolution condemning a French town naming a street after cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal (see WoolseyWatch--Terrorists, Rapists & Cop Killers, Oh My! Lynn Votes Against Resolution Condemning Mumia Abu-Jamal Honor from December 10, 2006).

Doyle wrote a letter dated December 21 to Woolsey stating he was "very disappointed" with her vote. He wrote another letter on January 18th and has not received a reply to either letter.

The sheriff told the IJ, "Both times I asked her to answer my questions and she doesn't." He said her vote raises questions about her support of the police and public safety officials.

But Woolsey has time for her friends at the Marin Independent Journal, who've stood by their lady even though they exposed her letter writing on behalf of a child rapist in 2004. She responded to Breithaupt by e-mail, telling him:

"I abhor the murder committed by Mumia Abu-Jamal, however I do not believe that it is the U.S. Congress' place to tell another foreign government what they can or cannot name their own streets."

As to why she has not responded to Doyle, Woolsey told the IJ she receives 3,000 letters, e-mails and phone calls a week and cannot reply to all of them.

Really? You mean to tell me you cannot reply to the Sheriff of Marin County because of the volume of messages you receive? I have a hard time believing that!

I think that is as lame an excuse as the one she gave regarding her vote against a resolution remembering the events of 9/11, in which she blamed the Republican leadership for "politicizing" 9/11.

Woolsey's lack of a reply to Sheriff Doyle is not due to the volume of her messages. It is an example of how she cannot stand for criticism or disagreement from her constituents. I personally can attest to this, as she can get pretty snippy.

Here's an example I found on YouTube. Woolsey evades the concerns of a constituent about the effects of illegal immigration.

The sheriff is right to question her support for public safety officials and police. Woolsey continuously shows her lack of support for the military. Some in the crowd which she spoke to on January 27th in Washington D.C. spat at Joshua Sparling, an Iraq War hero who lost one of his legs due to his wounds. Also, other members of the "peace crowd" spray painted the steps of the Capitol Building (for more mayhem, check out these photos from the Washington rally). Furthermore, what kind of person would write a letter of reference for the rapist of a 17 year old girl?

Lynn, you have a lot to answer for!

Extremist Imam Opens DNC Retreat With Prayer To Stop "Oppression & Occupation"

Yesterday, at the Democrat National Committee's Winter Retreat, the convocation was given by Muslim Shi’ite Imam Husham Al-Husainy, of the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center in Dearborn, Michigan. His prayer to the DNC officials called for a stop to "oppression & occupation."

See the video at HotAir.com.

Debbie Schlussel points out more about this Imam and his radicalism, including rallies which have shown support for Hamas & Hezbollah.

"This past summer, Al-Husainy seemed very happy leading almost-daily protests of thousands of Hezbollah supporters on the streets of Dearborn and Detroit, swarming with swastikas and anti-Semitic, anti-American signs.

Later, I watched him very much enjoy himself at an anti-Semitic rally of 3,000 Hezbollah supporters at Dearborn's Bint Jebail Cultural Center. He was among several who delivered hate-filled, anti-American rhetoric. I watched him cheer others on when they called for the hastened destruction of the Jews and when they said Americans are "diseased."

After the event, he seemed very happy when he put his arms around Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's favorite rabbi, Yisroel Dovid Weiss of the Neturei Kartah, who attended the recent Holocaust-denial conference. "We make a great team," he said of Weiss, who was flown into Detroit for the Hezbollah rallies.

Husainy seemed very happy in August 2004 when he led anti-Bush, anti-American rallies on the streets of Dearborn, which gave aid and comfort to the enemy in Iraq, at a time when Al-Sadr's terrorist thugs, the Mehdi Army, were actively making life tough for American soldiers, as they are, again, now. (The Mehdi Army recently kidnapped an Iraqi-American soldier.)

Why does it not suprise me that the DNC would side with elements of radical Islam?

Soldier Killed in Iraq Exploited By New York Times

From the Valley Morning Star in Harlingen, TX on Sgt. Hector Leija of nearby Raymondville, killed in Iraq on January 24.

RAYMONDVILLE - A frayed blue and white tent stretched from the old brown frame home as Staff Sgt. Hector Leija's family set up long tables where they'll pray for the man this farm town calls a hero.

"It's for a rosary," said Manuela Leija, the soldier's mother who stood near two small American flags that fluttered on a red, white and blue wreath from an old chain-link fence.

...Before he graduated from Raymondville High School in 1997, Hector Leija, 27, was 17 when he turned down college scholarships to join the Army.

When he left on his second tour of duty in Iraq, "it surprised friends who didn't know his dedication to trying to make a difference," his brother said.

"It made my father proud," he said of Domingo Leija Sr., who worked as a farm foreman.

"We cope with his loss with the wonderful memories (he left with) family, friends and soldiers who miss his smile," the brother said.

The Leija's loss has been compounded due to the sad fact that the Treason Times (formerly known as The New York Times) showed photos and video of Leija of his last moments. The Times either ignored or forgot a ground rule with the military which forbids names, video or photos of wounded service members being released by the media without the service member's written consent. See Michelle Malkin for more.

Leaking national security secrets, now releasing photos/video of servicemembers killed in action. I'm afraid to ponder the depths the Times will sink to next in order to promote enemy propaganda. In addition to having Editor Bill Keller and Publisher "Pinchy" Sulsburger tried for treason, the military should revoke all press priviledges for the Times.

And let's hope the Times goes out of business really soon, before they do more harm.
