Also, lobby groups are getting the shaft from our new president. Good!
This is a big change from what we had before.

January 20 will be the new New Year's Day here in the U.S. when Barack Obama is sworn in as President. I don't care what these Ozark hillbillies think. I'm happy Bush is leaving and what he left behind, Obama and his crew will have to take years to patch it back together. If you watch Press TV, you would get the impression that America has lost its status as the beacon of hope and that it is up to the rest of the world, including Iran, to solve all of the problems there are around the world regardless if the U.S. is in it or not. Religious conservatives make an issue over whether George Washington or Thomas Jefferson were born-again Christians or Deists. But, the issue becomes useless for debate when everyone knows both of these Founding Fathers owned slaves. America, a free country for some, but not for all. Thomas Jefferson writes that 'all men are created equal.' Apparently, he meant white men; rich, white men. Because, he has held racist, evolutionary views about non-white peoples. Blacks were excluded and Indians could be 'domesticated' little brown white people. Was Thomas Jefferson a Christian in a sense Christians would believe? He wrote his own bible which today is called "The Jeffersonian Bible," a book of the Four Gospels that excludes verses indicating the Divinity of Christ. He was a unitarian.
I have visited both the George Washington home at Mt. Vernon, Virginia and the Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, near Charlottesville, Virginia. Both of these places were big, "mac daddy," slave plantations. When guides are asked about these Founding Fathers and slaves, they rationalize away from really answering saying they were good to their slaves and it becomes a song and dance, trying their best not to demonize these great leaders.
Barack Obama looks up to Abraham Lincoln and some will say he does look up to Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It is amazing there are people today who don't much care for Abe or FDR. Some wish "the South" would have won and that's the reason they don't like Abe. And others wish America just sided with the Germans and that is one of the reasons why they don't like FDR. Prescott Bush, George W.'s grandpa, was involved during the 30's in a corporate plot to takeover the U.S. government from FDR and make this country into a Nazi puppet. The excuse some make for why they didn't like FDR was because FDR destroyed the free market and small businessmen lost everything under FDR. I believe that happened during the great depression under Hoover. If FDR was hated so much, why was he elected president and re-elected again, again, and again?
They are the same people who argue that he got us into WWII, provoking the Japanese to invade. Check out the John Birch "New American." Articles are written about this which I find are conspiracy-driven. I won't go into why they hate Obama. The internet is filled with this misinformation on reasons why don't like Obama, just like they don't like Abe or FDR.
The Preamble of the U.S. Constitution and I am quoting by memory.
"We The People of the United States in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, Provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
I stand by it and for those say they do, do they really?

Stop this war!

A new TV channel is coming to the U.S. and it is the "Guide Us" channel, a TV channel for Islam, similar to the one in the UK known as the Islam Channel. I believe Yusuf Estes heads this project for the "Guide Us" channel. You may find information on this from his site, Islam Tomorrow .
The web site for Guide Us, I believe is guideus.com . He is hoping that this station will get on cable and satellite systems across the U.S. but I am afraid he shouldn't hold his breath. Yusuf Estes, I am sure, is aware of this fact. The media, especially Fox News has done a tremendous job villifying Islam and the people who practice Islam, linking everybody who practice Islam regardless of sect, is somehow linked to terrorism, suicide bombings, and Osama bin Laden. They have done an excellent job scaring the American people and even convinced many voters, especially from the southern and western states that Barack Obama must be or is a Muslim terrorist. The man is getting ready to become our next president and still, there are some gullible people who still believes he is a Muslim even if they are now convinced he is not a terrorist. The Guide Us network will have a long way to go to get into these systems. If I still don't get them on the cable, I hope it is available on the internet, because on the internet, I can get the Islam Channel, Press TV, Peace TV, Huda TV, al-Jazeera, and many others.

Riz Khan of Al-Jazeera speaks to Richard Falk, the UN's speacial rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories, about whether Israel has committed war crimes in its Gaza offensive and whether Barack Obama, the US president-elect, could do more to pressure Israel.
I am figuring in my mind that there has been no ceasefire for Gaza. I am figuring that there has been more bombing in Gaza with Israel's use of white phosphorus shells, which, I have mentioned before in a previous message, causes severe burns to the skin. This war is totally lop-sided. There may close to a thousand dead in Gaza with 3,000 injured. Israel suffered with 20 dead as result of rocket attacks from Hamas. The world is protesting what is going on in Gaza. Preachers across the U.S. proclaiming to us saying, "See there, The whole is world is going against Israel as foretold in prophecy!" But, it is not all black and white. It is all gray. Who really likes Hamas? I don't, but who really likes what Israel is doing when they say they intend to capture Hamas and at the same time, women and children are killed, a medical center bombed, a Palestinian lawyer who refused to work for Hamas and who believed Israel would never kill him did get killed; situations like these that have no end. You have Arabs who hate Jews. You have Jews who hate Arabs. The world is calling for a cease fire and an end to the conflict, but neither Hamas nor Israel are listening. So what can be done about it? Congressman Ron Paul believes that Palestinian blood is shed on America, because of U.S. foreign aid to Israel aiding its military arsenal. This is at a time when many people in the Middle East are already mad at the U.S. over Iraq and Afghanistan and Gaza fuels the fire.

like Pogo who said that he had found and that enemy is us. No, but pretty similar. He proclaimed
that "gangsta rap" is the enemy. Well, I agree, but I will go a little further that. Mankind and womankind, know your enemy and that enemy is Satan and that junk your kids listen to all around the world is Satan's tools, i.e. gangsta rap, the rappers, and these record companies that produced this shit. Rap/Hip-Hop music is one category of music and most of it is bad. It's haram. I don't really consider it to be music, but it is music that can do damage to what we hold dear in our lives, like family, community, and country. Very little of it is halal or good, which is about 5% of what is out there. But, it is Satan's tool to destroy all of humankind and these young kids out there regardless of where you live listen to this shit and take it in. Personally, I have no use for it when it comes to what is produced now. I have no use for Little Duffel Bag Boy Lil' Wayne. The shit that comes out of his mouth perpetuates the violence we have in urban ghettoes across the U.S. and around the world. I have just seen "Gran Torino" starring Clint Eastwood. It is a good movie and the ending is not what I've expected. There is a gang in the movie that goes around and terrorizes young people and family members. This is an Asian gang. Guess what they listen to and look up to. The shitheads known as gangsta rappers with their gangsta rap and they emulate them. This is not the whole problem with society today, but it is one of the problems. But, the biggest enemy is Satan.
"Assuredly it is thy Lord Who will gather them together for He is perfect in Wisdom and Knowledge. We created man from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape; and the Jinn race, We have created before, from the fire of a scorching wind. Behold! thy Lord said to the angels: 'I am about the creat man, from sounding clay from mud moulded into shape; When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him.' So the angels prostated themselves, all of them together. Not so Iblis (Satan): he refused to be among those who prostrated themselves. Allah said: 'O Iblis! what is your reason for not being among those who prostrated themselves?' Iblis said: 'I am not one to prostrate myself to man, whom Thou didst create from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape.' Allah said: Then get thee out of here; for thou art rejected, accursed. And the curse shall be on thee till the day of Judgment.' Iblis said: 'O my Lord! give me then respite till the Day the (dead) are raised.' Allah said: 'Respite is granted thee Till the Day of the Time appointed.' Iblis said: 'O my Lord! becasue Thou hast put me in the wrong, I will make (wrong) fair-seeming to them on the earth, and I will put them all in the wrong, - Except thy servants among them, sincere and purified (by Thy Grace)." Allah said: "This (way of My sincere servants) is indeed a way that leads straight to Me. For over My servants no authority shalt thou have, except such as put themselves in the wrong and follow thee. And verily, Hell is promised abode for them all."
Surah 15, Al Hijr (The Rocky Tract), Ayats 25-43.
Mankind, Womankind, Know Your Enemy!
A concentration camp, people can't leave, Israel embargoes the Strip, lack of medical supplies,
people hurting, people dying, lack of food, an Iranian ship comes to the rescue bringing needed
aid to the trapped Palestinians, will it be allowed to help? The American media is very one-sided
on this situation, but are unable to sway the American public to the Israeli view. The public is split over the issue. I continue to watch Press TV and I've sent messages to the Babel Yahoo!
group and to the REAL DEAL group, an African-American group, and the replies over Press TV
have been very positive and I am confident this station on the web is getting new viewers throughout the world. Phosphorus Shell bombs continue to attack the people there, burning off people's skins if contacted. I'm saying this not ignoring the Hamas' attack on Israel from Gaza or
the attacks from Lebanon, but more death, more damage is far more prevalent in Gaza.

I hope I am not writing to the choir here. Press TV and the other station I see on YouTube, Al-Jazeera, have correspondents in Gaza. And BTW, regardless if MSNBC has an Arabic translator telling gullible viewers what Al-Jazeera is reporting, you don't have to rely on MSNBC to mistranslate, cover up while translating, or lie to the viewer what Al-Jazeera is reporting. You can view Al-Jazeera yourself on the web either in English or in Arabic using Real Player or Live Station. The bombing is an outrage and just now Venezuela kicked an Israeli envoy out of their country over Gaza. The U.S. sends more aid to Israel than the whole continent of Africa itself!
If aid were to be cut off, then, there will be a ceasefire! That's my take. What will Bush do? Nothing. What will Obama do? Possibly the same. I am disappointed in him.

Nine days. 507 Palestinians killed. 2,400 injured. A quarter of those killed - civilians, according to the UN.

Leftist apologists will stand by defending them as a matter of choice, but at the same time, they did not choose to be gay. Well, maybe they were forced! We are finally going to get the Bush-Cheney team out of the White House and these shitheads choose to tear down Obama. It just doesn't end!
