    Friend -- Not everyone knows how to prepare for a dinner like this. As someone who's eaten countless meals with my husband, I want to tell you the one thing to do if you're selected to join him... Just relax. Barack wants this dinner to be fun, and he really loves getting to know supporters like you. I hope you'll take him up on it before Friday's deadline. Will you donate $3 or more today and be entered to have dinner with Barack? These dinners mean a lot to Barack. They're a chance for him to talk with a few...

    Reuters ^ | Sept. 6, 2011
    The human rights organization American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) will be hosting its second annual 9/11 Freedom Rally on September 11 at 3pm at Park Place and West Broadway. While clergy, 9/11 first responders, and 9/11 family members are barred and/or not invited to the official ceremonies, all are welcome at the 9/11 Freedom Rally. And while White House guidelines forbid official 9/11 ceremonies from mentioning who attacked the U.S. on that day or why, the 9/11 Freedom Rally features more honest speakers. Free citizens are coming from all over the U.S. to attend the rally. "Honor our war and...

    This is too priceless not to share. This is a video of an interview with U.N. lobbyist, Phyliis Bennis, who is a Palestinian state/ anti Israel advocate. She is ranting about Israel when.... the DC earthquake hit. Look at the fear on her face and how she runs for the hills. God cut her off midsentence. I hope she takes that as a warning. Somehow... I don't think so.

    DADAAB, Kenya -- Hundreds of thousands of Somali children could die in the country's famine unless more help arrives, a top U.S. official said Monday as Washington prepared to announce $100 million in new famine aid. To highlight the crisis, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden visited a refugee camp on a patch of desert in eastern Kenya where tens of thousands of Somalis have massed. A drought has turned into famine because little aid can reach militant-controlled south-central Somalia. Jill Biden is the highest-profile U.S. visitor to East Africa since the number of refugees coming across the Somali...

    NTEB has reported extensively on the growing Chrislam movement. Started by Rick Warren of Saddleback Church, it has grown dramatically and now has infected many hundreds of churches and denominations all across America. A group called Faith Shared is now spearheading the move to merge Christianity with Islam, and in the process provoking the very judgment of God down upon us as a nation. The following is taken directly from their website: “Faith Shared asks houses of worship across the country to organize events involving clergy reading from each other’s sacred texts. An example would be a Christian Minister, Jewish...

He downloaded the document from the official WH website and imported it into Illustrator. Look how many 'layers' were added to this thing. And the sloppy techniques that any Illustrator user could spot. But the real question is... nobody cares about this anymore and BHO is the hero of the moment.

    Washington (CNN) -- A suburban Washington county official at the center of an FBI investigation into years of kickbacks says he is innocent and that the facts will prove it. Jack Johnson, who served as the executive of Prince George's County, Maryland, since 2002, spoke to reporters late Friday after the FBI released details of how he and his wife allegedly tried to hide checks and evidence of illegal payments, even going so far as to flush a $100,000 check down the toilet.

    The nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization declared in a report released Wednesday that the Tea Party was “permeated with concerns about race,” an assessment that is likely to reignite a feud between the two groups. The report by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People argues that Tea Party groups “have given platform to anti-Semites, racists and bigots,” and have attracted white nationalists looking for recruits. “The Tea Party movement has unleashed a still inchoate political movement who are in their numerical majority, angry middle-class white people who believe their country, their nation, has been taken...

    Just days before the start of his sensational trial, junk mortgage king Angelo Mozilo agreed to pay $67.5 million to settle fraud charges and avoid any public humiliation in court. Mozilo, the former CEO of Countrywide Financial, was the highest-ranking executive prosecuted following the financial collapse in 2008 due to toxic mortgage paper. Countrywide was one of the nation's largest originators of subprime loans. Their trial on charges of fraud and insider trading was set to open next week. Mozilo, who wasn't in the courtroom yesterday, agreed to give up $45 million in ill-gotten profits from illegal trades in Countrywide...

    JERUSALEM, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Washington is funding an ad campaign in Israel featuring billboards of Palestinian officials asking: "We are partners -- what about you?" The campaign launched Sunday includes the faces of senior Palestinian Authority officials Saeb Erekat, Jibril Rajoub and Yasser Abed Rabo, and Riad Malki, Palestinian foreign affairs minister, Yedioth Aharonoth said. The aim of the campaign is to persuade Israelis that peace partners on the Palestinian side truly exist, and calls for support of a two-state solution, the Tel Aviv newspaper said.

ANSWER: Feisal Abdul Rauf! (Link to audio excerpt of Raul interview at bottom of page) The Shoebat Foundation has obtained a shocking audio recording of Rauf's own voice boasting in Arabic that Obama’s historic speech in Cairo was provided by the Imam's work with the Cordova Initiative in what the Imam called “The Blue Print” which, according to him, was the solution to the Islamic-American divide.

Imane Boudlal, a restaurant hostess at the Storytellers’ Cafe in the Grand Californian Hotel in Downtown Disney, said she has been sent home without pay four times this week after attempting to wear a hijab at work. But Suzi Brown, a Disneyland Resort spokeswoman, said Boudlal was offered a behind-the-scenes assignment at the restaurant until a solution could be figured out. Brown denied that the company discriminated against Boudlal.

    Iran's Revolutionary Guards are willing to provide a military escort to cargo ships trying to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza, a spokesman for Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted as saying Sunday. The news was carried by Reuters, quoting Iranian news agency Mehr. "Iran's navy forces are ready to escort the peace flotilla to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities," announced Ali Shirazi, Khamenei's representative inside the Revolutionary Guards. The report came just a day after Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was reportedly considering personally joining a flotilla to Gaza and offering the support of...

    The Massachusetts treasurer said Tuesday that Congress will "threaten to wipe out the American economy within four years" if it adopts a health care overhaul modeled after the Bay State's. Treasurer Timothy Cahill - a former Democrat running as an independent for governor - said the 2006 law has succeeded only because of huge subsidies and favorable regulatory changes from the federal government.

    Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000...

And a key conservative vote, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., says unless there is such an action, it will mean the recent votes on that very issue were nothing but "cover."

    The United States may have narrowly missed a repeat of the 9/11 attacks in June — and, apparently, even the FBI doesn’t realize it. On June 4, a 24-year-old Muslim man named Raed Abdhul-Rahman Alsaif was arrested for trying to bring a seven-inch knife on board a U.S. Airways flight at Tampa International Airport, destined for Phoenix. The blade was seen by a screener and Alsaif was caught before he could get onto the airliner. Of course, he says he is innocent,...

    The real estate market has crashed. The stock market has crashed. The banking sector is in shambles. Unemployment and underemployment is rising. There’s a liquidity problem making it difficult for companies to obtain necessary capital to expand their businesses and thereby increase employment. The US borrows over $700 billion a year from China and we end up transferring that money to the Saudi’s and the Middle East in the form of petro-dollars, also reaching $700 billion a year. It’s an interesting number as the federal government just agreed to spend $700 billion in taxpayer’s money to “fix” the current problems....

In one of their meetings, he asks what will they do with die hard capitalists, that can't be re-educated to the new way of thinking, when the Underground took over the government. The answer is shocking. They estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million Americans.

    One might ask why it is important to understand the relation between the Leftist/Marxist/Islamist Alliance and the Emerging Movement among Churches and Mosques. It is because it indicates the movement of a historically conservative church and other organizations into the fold. These Emerging Church and Mosque Movements are the elephants in the pew. The Radical Islamist Movement has realized that the tactical weapons of terrorism and suicide bombing may not be achieving their goal for world domination, and that seduction, economics and political action are more effective in winning the war. In this essay, I address how the Leftist/Marxist/Islamist Alliance...

The men were reportedly in their 20s or early 30s, and one was using a sophisticated news media-style camera. When firefighters attempted to talk with the men, they reportedly jumped into a waiting car and sped off. The incident prompted the Sacramento Regional Terrorism Threat Assessment Center to send out a request for Northern California fire stations to watch for similar incidents, and report them immediately. The day the request went...

Al-Jareeda quoted several sources as saying that Israel and senior Turkish military personnel coordinated Israel's invasion of Turkish airspace during the operation to send a message to the ruling Justice and Development party, or AKP. Senior military officials in Turkey, most of whom are secular, oppose the Islamist party's platform. According...

    It’s not enough that our southern border is a sieve. It’s not enough that any attempt to identify potential terrorists is decried as “racial profiling”. It’s not enough that the Democrats in Congress are falling all over themselves to declare defeat in Iraq. Now we’re about to alter our immigration laws to make it easier for Al Qaeda terrorists in Iraq to make their home in the United States. We have decided to invite them in. “C’mon, boys! Pull up a chair and grab a beer and a plate of pulled pork barbecue — uh, sorry… make that a cup...
  • Relieve your 'trip guilt' (the roaming knome & carbon offsets)

    I recently booked a trip through Travelocity. The roaming knome (D) returned this so that I would not feel guilty about using all those nasty carbons on my journey. Today, many of us recycle and walk, bike, or take public transportation when we can, but there's still no way to get across the country or ocean in time for that important meeting or family event - or to reach that great vacation spot out of driving distance-- unless we get on a plane. And while air travel is considered a contributor to the carbon dioxide emissions that lead to global...

    Gov. Schwarzenegger has staked his administration upon two signature issues: his international leadership to reduce “greenhouse gases” and his promise to construct new highways, dams, levees, aqueducts and other public works. Last month “The Green Governor” toured the globe to tout his “greenhouse gas” bill, AB 32, that requires a 25 percent reduction in carbon dioxide by 2020 – making it the most restrictive emissions law in the country. Recently, the governor toured California to tout his public works renaissance that requires $40 billion in taxpayer-financed bonds – making it the biggest borrowing binge in the country. Individually, these two...

    Arab terrorists attacked Sderot again on Shabbat morning, damaging two buildings and sending four people to the hospital for treatment of shock. The daily IDF retaliation targeted a terrorist leader while he was riding a motorcycle, but the government and military remain helpless to stop the immense damage caused by the primitive rocket. The Kassam rocket is "very simply made," according to Uzi Rubin, former national program manager of the Arrow anti-missile system. "The sugar they buy from Israel. The fertilizer they buy from Israel. The metal pipe they buy from Israel. Ingenious. Very ingenious. I take my hat off...
