Right Wing Dog

The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

Barack Obama has Appointed the FOX TO GUARD THE HEN HOUSE!

Here it is – Barack Hussein Obama has appointed the FOX to GUARD the HENHOUSE! What is next?

Just in case you may think this is RIGHTWING fabrication, I posted the snopes.com web address that shows THEY think it is truth (I don’t know if gospel would be correct when talking about Muslim’s).

Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the hen house. The wolves will be herding the sheep! Obama appoints two devout Muslims to home land security posts. Doesn’t this make you feel safer already?

Obama and Janet Napolitano Appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council(HSAC).

HOLY SMOKE, The wolves will be hearding the sheep!

NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant…? Just wondering.

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn’t this make you feel safer already?? That should make our home land much safer, huh!!

Was it not “Devout Muslim men” that flew planes into U.S. buildings 8 years ago? Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood?

Forward this important info. to anyone that cares about the future of our Country.

Snopes documents it’s true>

Barack Obama a drunk and a smoker or Worse?

I do not know who wrote this. It came to me via email from a political list I belong to. It makes so much sense and tells so much about Barack Hussein Obama that I had to copy and share it with you. I did not write any of it and I thank whoever did. It says things better than I ever could.

Obama is worse than just a Smoker and a Drunk.

He’s a liar – See transparency he promised during his campaign and the secret meetings he conduced behind closed doors AFTER promising he would have “C-SPAN televise every meeting regarding health care reform to the public”.

He’s ignorant or absent-minded – See when he said there are ’57 states’

He’s very confused (or a Muslim) – See when responding to a reporter’s thorny question he responds “Well than I guess I’ll just have to rely on my Muslim faith”.

He’s violated the separation of powers mandate of the Constitution – See when he called a meeting of both political parties (that’s OK), then acted as moderator and used his ‘power’ to expand on his agenda for 2/3 of the time spent on the issue of health care reform. (That’s not OK).

He’s a ‘trickster’ – See him pushing for, and accomplishing, the addition of student loans as a government program to the health care law.

He’s slippery as a used car salesman and sneaky as a burglar – See how he is NOT leading Americans into socialism, but into fascism with his virtual takeover of regulating of businesses, student loans, automobile manufacturers, banks, taxes, health care, and only God knows what else.

His fascism is obvious – See how he intends to raise taxes on the middle class while folks making under 50K a year will pay ZERO taxes.

He’s a cowardly weasel – See his failure to understand that America needs to stand up to Iran and use strong sanctions and inform them no option is off the table.

He has the I.Q. and education of a brilliant man; but he’s not one – See where he has demonstrated a lack of inherent common sense, natural good judgment, and cognitive reasoning skills that no amount of intelligence or education can teach.

Never in the history of the United States has a President fooled so many people; nor has that same President committed so many mistakes and got away with them because the lame stream media must have seen him walk on water or raise the dead – See how there is no condemnation of him by the media for acts that other Presidents would have been mauled about, including attending church for 20+ years pastored by a racist, bigoted, anti-American – and see how he included among his friends Bill Ayers an avowed domestic terrorist.

The Barack Hussein Obama Problem

I received this from a friend and to me it goes right to the heart of the Barack Obama Problem in Washington.

Pat Boone (yes, the singer and staunch christian) wrote it.
It has been verified in Snopes as authentic.
I place it here on my blog because of the message it sends and the questions it asks.

The president without a country
By Pat Boone

“We’re no longer a Christian nation.” – President Barack Obama, June 2007

” America has been arrogant.” – President Barack Obama

“After 9/11, America didn’t always live up to her ideals.”- President Barack Obama

“You might say that America is a Muslim nation.”- President Barack Obama, Egypt 2009

Thinking about these and other statements made by the man who wears the title of president. I keep wondering what country he believes he’s president of.

In one of my very favorite stories, Edward Everett Hale’s “The Man without a Country,” a young Army lieutenant named Philip Nolan stands condemned for treason during the Revolutionary War, having come under the influence of Aaron Burr. When the judge asks him if he wishes to say anything before sentence is passed, young Nolan defiantly exclaims, “Damn the United States ! I wish I might never hear of the United States again!”

The stunned silence in the courtroom is palpable, pulsing. After a long pause, the judge soberly says to the angry lieutenant: “You have just pronounced your own sentence. You will never hear of the United States again.. I sentence you to spend the rest of your life at sea, on one or another of this country’s naval vessels – under strict orders that no one will ever speak to you again about the country you have just cursed.”

And so it was. Philip Nolan was taken away and spent the next 40 years at sea, never hearing anything but an occasional slip of the tongue about America. The last few pages of the story, recounting Nolan’s dying hours in his small stateroom – now turned into a shrine to the country he fore swore – never fail to bring me to tears. And I find my own love for this dream, this miracle called America , refreshed and renewed. I know how blessed and unique we are.

But reading and hearing the audacious, shocking statements of the man who was recently elected our president – a young black man living the impossible dream of millions of young Americans, past and present, black and white – I want to ask him, “Just what country do you think you’re president of?”

You surely can’t be referring to the United States of America , can you? America is emphatically a Christian nation, and has been from its inception! Seventy percent of her citizens identify themselves as Christian. The Declaration of Independence and our Constitution were framed, written and ratified by Christians. It’s because this was, and is, a nation built on and guided by Judeo-Christian biblical principles that you, sir, have had the inestimable privilege of being elected her president.

You studied law at Harvard, didn’t you, sir? You taught constitutional law in Chicago ? Did you not ever read the statement of John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and an author of the landmark “Federalist Papers”: “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers – and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation – to select and prefer Christians for their rulers”?

In your studies, you surely must have read the decision of the Supreme Court in 1892: “Our lives and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.”

Did your professors have you skip over all the high-court decisions right up till the mid 1900’s that echoed and reinforced these views and intentions? Did you pick up the history of American jurisprudence only in 1947, when for the first time a phrase coined by Thomas Jefferson about a “wall of separation between church and state” was used to deny some specific religious expression – contrary to Jefferson ‘ s intent with that statement?

Or, wait a minute . Were your ideas about America ‘s Christianity formed during the 20 years you were a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ under your pastor, Jeremiah Wright? Is that where you got the idea that ” America is no longer a Christian nation”? Is this where you, even as you came to call yourself a Christian, formed the belief that ” America has been arrogant”?

Even if that’s the understandable explanation of your damning of your country and accusing the whole nation (not just a few military officials trying their best to keep more Americans from being murdered by jihadists) of “not always living up to her ideals,” how did you come up with the ridiculous, alarming notion that we might be “considered a Muslim nation”?

Is it because there are some 2 million or more Muslims living here, trying to be good Americans? Out of a current population of over 300 million, 70 percent of whom are Christians? Does that make us, by any rational definition, a “Muslim nation”?

Why are we not, then, a “Chinese nation”? A “Korean nation”? Even a “Vietnamese nation”? There are even more of these distinct groups in America than Muslims. And if the distinction you’re trying to make is a religious one, why is America not “a Jewish nation”? There’s actually a case to be made for the latter, because our Constitution – and the success of our Revolution and founding – owe a deep debt to our Jewish brothers.

Have you stopped to think what an actual Muslim America would be like? Have you ever really spent much time in Iran ? Even in Egypt ? You, having been instructed in Islam as a kid at a Muslim school in Indonesia and saying you still love the call to evening prayers, can surely picture our nation founded on the Quran, not the Judeo-Christian Bible, and living under Shariah law. Can’t you? You do recall Muhammad’s directives [Surah 9:5,73] to “break the cross” and “kill the infidel”?

It seems increasingly and painfully obvious that you are more influenced by your upbringing and questionable education than most suspected.. If you consider yourself the president of a people who are “no longer Christian,” who have “failed to live up to our ideals,” who “have been arrogant,” and might even be “considered Muslim” – you are president of a country most Americans don’t recognize.

Could it be you are a president without a country?

PLEASE SHARE THIS MESSAGE WITH OTHER AMERICANS.

Barack Hussein Obama “quietly” Appoints Muslim to DHS to “set Policy on Security at Highest Levels in Government”!

Obama Appoints Muslim to High-level Position in Department of Homeland Security
By Vincent Gioia | Published 09/20/2009 |

Purported non Muslim Barack Hussein Obama made a presidential appointment of Muslim Los Angeles Deputy Mayor Arif Alikhan for a top job at the federal Department of Homeland Security. In his new job, Arif Alikhan will be Assistant Secretary for the Office of Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security. Alikhan has been Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles–in charge of public safety for the city.

Why Muslim Alikhan at the Department of Homeland Security you might ask? DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said Alikhan’s “broad and impressive array of experience in national security, emergency preparedness, and counterterrorism will make him an asset”–yes, but on behalf of the U.S. or Muslims? I am not sure what she is talking about and she probably doesn’t know either. http://www.indiawest.com/readmore.aspx?id=1132&Sid=1

Alikhan says a big part of his job will be fostering communication between agencies. Alikhan, like Obama, also wants to help improve America’s image with Muslims around the world. He will now set policy on security at the highest levels of the federal government. But what policies has the new Assistant Secretary embraced?

During his years in Los Angeles, Alikhan was responsible for derailing the Police Department’s plan to monitor activities within the Los Angeles Muslim community, where numerous radical mosques and madrassas existed, and where some of the 9/11 hijackers had received support from local residents.

Alikhan is strongly anti-Israel; he has referred to the terrorist organization Hezbollah as a “liberation movement.” Hezbollah is on the U.S. official terrorist list while being an affiliate of the Muslim Public Affairs Council. Alikhan also opposed President George W. Bush’s prosecution of the war on Islamic terror.

In 2007, Alikhan was instrumental in removing the Muslim terror tracking plan in Los Angeles. The Muslim ‘‘Mapping’’ Plan of the Los Angeles Police Department is now “dead on arrival” according to Chief William Bratton. “It is over and not just put on the side,” said Chief Bratton in a meeting with the Muslim leadership of Southern California at that time. The meeting was moderated by Arif Alikhan.

Chief Bratton acknowledged the hurt and offense caused to Muslims and agreed to send a letter to the Muslim community announcing the official termination of the ‘’mapping’’ plan.

A major reason for the termination of the ‘‘mapping’’ plan was the Muslim community’s vociferous opposition and active civic engagement in making themselves heard beyond Los Angeles. Muslim organizations demonstrated a strong unity of purpose and message on the issue of ‘’mapping’’ that led to a position of strength for Muslims in the meeting. Those involved in the initial phases of this controversy were the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California http://www.shuracouncil.org/ and the Council on American-Islamic Relations http://www.cair.com/ , the Muslim Public Affairs arm.

Muslim Democrats welcomed Alikhan’s appointment at a banquet/fundraiser for the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California recently where the first speaker was Arif Alikhan, a devout Sunni and the son of Pakistani immigrants, http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,505573,00 .

Other speakers included Professor Agha Saeed of the American Muslim Task Force (AMT) who spoke about “the struggle of the Muslim Community against the pervasive atmosphere of Islamophobia and hatred in the aftermath of 9/11. It was a struggle against the tide–a very strong tide–to prevent Muslims in America from being marginalized and silenced.”

Professor Saeed issued five demands from Muslims to the Department of Justice. These demands included a cessation to the infiltration by spies of mosques and an end to the introduction of agents provocateur. In addition there was to be a cessation of attempts to undermine Muslim groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Un-indicted co-conspirator CAIR was thrilled at the appointment: http://www.us4arabs.com/content/view/1590/31/

Last week, Napolitano swore in Damascus-born Kareem Shora, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC)’s national executive director, to a position on the Homeland Security Advisory Council, an outside-the-department group of national security experts that advises the Secretary. Shora is the first Arab rights advocate on the panel. Shora has with ties to terror backers http://www.creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/06another-jihad-nominee-atdept-of-homeland-security/

One may wonder how does an obscure (but Democrat) bureaucrat and devout Muslim come to the position of Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles–in charge of public safety for the city and now becomes Assistant Secretary to DHS under purported non Muslim Democrat President Barack Hussein Obama?
I certainly know that I do!

It seems Barack Hussein Obama has held the door open for the FOX TO ENTER THE HEN-HOUSE!

Is this a CHANGE that we really need? I HOPE it is not indicitive of things to come!

Obama’s Campaign screws up AGAIN, He blames Volunteers!

Barack Obama throughs volunteer staff under the BUS!

What a guy! He ALWAYS blames someone else for problems that are HIS RESPONSIBILITY! How can a man like this even think he could hold the office of President. I am so glad he will lose to McCain in November!

Barack Obama personally apologized Thursday to two Detroit-area women who were barred from sitting behind him during a campaign rally earlier this week because they wore Islamic headscarves.

 

 

“I spoke with Ms. Abdelfadeel, and expressed my deepest apologies for the incident that occurred with volunteers at the event in Detroit,” he said. “The actions of these volunteers (this is HIS STAFF, he is responsible for their actions) were unacceptable and in no way reflect any policy of my campaign. I take deepest offense (this is crapola) to and will continue to fight against discrimination against people of any religious group or background.

 

 Aref said Wednesday that Obama campaign volunteers had invited them to sit behind the podium during a rally Monday for the Illinois senator at Joe Louis Arena. But she said they were told that women wearing hijabs, the traditional Muslim head scarves, couldn’t sit behind the podium _ and in front of TV cameras. (He could NOT have Muslim appearing woman in view of the world, they would continue to think he was Muslim, somewhat like his half-brother said he was before he was Christian which Barack Obama denies)

Barack Obama is NOT PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL and never will be!

Hope Rides Alone

This was sent to me from a friend via email and I felt that I should do my part to help the world to read it. I can only assume it is genuine, I have no way to verify but on the chance that it is not, the message still rings loud and clear:


“Let’s stop all the political nonsense, let’s stop all the bickering,
let’s stop all the bad news, and let’s stand and fight!”


 

 This young leader had a lot to say. Too bad he did not survive and go
on to provide his leadership to many others.

Here’s young man, young in years but wisdom far beyond his age. He was
killed in Iraq but left some words that need to be read. Not to take a
few minutes to do that would be a disservice to his sacrifice.

Please read and pass on to anyone you like

Very meaty piece of commentary from a fallen Warrior……

*************************************************************************

SGT. Edmund John Jeffers last few words were some of the most touching,
inspiring and most truthful words spoken since the tragedy of 9/11 – and
since our nation went to war.
SGT. Jeffers was a strong soldier and talented writer. He died in Iraq
on September 19, 2007. He was a loving husband, brother and son. His
service was more than this country could ever grasp – but the least you
can do for the man who sacrificed his life for you … is listen to what
he had to say.
Listen up and pay attention to all of the Cindy Sheehan’s and Al
Franken’s of the world. To MSNBC, CNN, and CBS. To all who call
themselves Americans …Hope Rides Alone.

*************************************************************************

Hope Rides Alone
By Eddie Jeffers

I stare out into the darkness from my post, and I watch the city burn to
the ground. I smell the familiar smells, I walk through the familiar
rubble, and I look at the frightened faces that watch me pass down the
streets of their neighborhoods. My nerves hardly rest; my hands are
steady on a device that has been given to me from my government for the
purpose of taking the lives of others. I sweat, and I am tired. My back
aches from the loads I carry. Young American boys look to me to direct
them in a manner that will someday allow them to see their families
again…and yet, I too, am just a boy….my age not but a few years more
than that of the ones I lead. I am stressed, I am scared, and I am
paranoid…because death is everywhere. It waits for me, it calls to me
from around street corners and windows, and it is always there.
There are the demons that follow me, and tempt me into thoughts and
actions that are not my own…but that are necessary for survival. I’ve
made compromises with my humanity. And I am not alone in this. Miles
from me are my brethren in this world, who walk in the same
streets…who feel the same things, whether they admit to it or not. And
to think, I volunteered for this… And I am ignorant to the rest of the
world…or so I thought.

But even thousands of miles away, in Ramadi , Iraq , the cries and
screams and complaints of the ungrateful reach me. In a year, I will be
thrust back into society from a life and mentality that doesn’t fit your
average man. And then, I will be alone. And then, I will walk down the
streets of America, and see the yellow ribbon stickers on the cars of
the same people who compare our President to Hitler. I will watch the
television and watch the Cindy Sheehan’s, and the Al Franken’s, and the
rest of the ignorant sheep of America spout off their mouths about a
subject they know nothing about.
It is their right, however, and it is a
right that is defended by hundreds of thousands of boys and girls
scattered across the world, far from home. I use the word boys and
girls, because that’s what they are. In the Army, the average age of the
infantryman is nineteen years old. The average rank of soldiers killed
in action is Private First Class. People like Cindy Sheehan are
ignorant. Not just to this war, but to the results of their idiotic
ramblings, or at least I hope they are. They don’t realize its effects
on this war. In this war, there are no Geneva Conventions, no cease
fires. Medics and Chaplains are not spared from the enemy’s brutality
because it’s against the rules. I can only imagine the horrors a
military Chaplain would experience at the hands of the enemy. The enemy
slinks in the shadows and fights a coward’s war against us. It is
effective though, as many men and women have died since the start of
this war. And the memory of their service to America is tainted by the
inconsiderate remarks on our nation’s news outlets. And every day, the
enemy changes…only now, the enemy is becoming something new. The enemy
is transitioning from the Muslim extremists to Americans. The enemy is
becoming the very people whom we defend with our lives. And they do not
realize it. But in denouncing our actions, denouncing our leaders,
denouncing the war we live and fight, they are isolating the military
from society…and they are becoming our enemy.

Democrats and peace activists like to toss the word “quagmire” around
and compare this war to Vietnam. In a way they are right, this war is
becoming like Vietnam. Not the actual war, but in the isolation of
country and military. America is not a nation at war; they are a nation
with its military at war. Like it or not, we are here, some of us for
our second, or third times; some even for their fourth and so on.
Americans are so concerned now with politics, that it is interfering
with our war. Terrorists cut the heads off of American citizens on the
Internet…and there is no outrage, but an American soldier kills an
Iraqi in the midst of battle,
and there are investigations, and
sometimes soldiers are even jailed…for doing their job. It is
absolutely sickening to me to think our country has come to this. Why
are we so obsessed with the bad news? Why will people stop at nothing to
be against this war, no matter how much evidence of the good we’ve done
is thrown in their face? When is the last time CNN or MSNBC or CBS
reported the opening of schools and hospitals in Iraq? Or the leaders of
terror cells being detained or killed? It’s all happening, but people
will not let up their hatred of Bush. They will ignore the good news,
because it just might show people that Bush was right.

America has lost its will to fight. It has lost its will to defend what
is right and just in the world. The crazy thing of it all is that the
American people have not even been asked to sacrifice a single thing.
It’s not like World War Two, where people rationed food, and turned in
cars to be made into metal for tanks. The American people have not been
asked to sacrifice anything. Unless you are in the military or the
family member of a service member, its life as usual…the war doesn’t
affect you. But it affects us. And when it is over, and the troops come
home, and they try to piece together what’s left of them after their
service…where will the detractors be then? Where will the Cindy
Sheehan’s be to comfort and talk to soldiers and help them sort out the
last couple years of their lives, most of which have been spent dodging
death and wading through the deaths of their friends? They will be where
they always are, somewhere far away, where the horrors of the world
can’t touch them. Somewhere where they can complain about things they
will never experience in their lifetime; things that the young men and
women of America have willingly taken upon their shoulders.

We are the hope of the Iraqi people. They want what everyone else wants
in life: safety, security, somewhere to call home. They want a country
that is safe to raise their children in. Not a place where their
children will be abducted, raped, and murdered if they do not comply
with the terrorists demands. They want to live on, rebuild and prosper.
And America has given them the opportunity, but only if we stay true to
the cause, and see it to its end. But the country must unite in this
endeavor…we cannot place the burden on our military alone. We must all
stand up and fight, whether in uniform or not. And supporting us is more
than sticking yellow ribbon stickers on your cars. It’s supporting our
President, our troops and our cause.

Right now, the burden is all on the American soldiers. Right now, hope
rides alone. But it can change, it must change. Because there is only
failure and darkness ahead for us as a country, as a people, if it
doesn’t.
Let’s stop all the political nonsense, let’s stop all the bickering,
let’s stop all the bad news, and let’s stand and fight!

I’m not sure how many letters or articles you’ve ever read from the
genre of “News from the Front,” but this is one of the best I’ve ever
read, including all of America’s wars. As I was reading this, I forgot
that it was my son who had written it. My emotions range from great
pride to great sorrow, knowing that my little boy (22 years old) has
become this man. He is my hero. Thank all of you for your prayers for
him; he needs them now more than ever. God bless.

Though Eddie is no longer with us, you can help to let his voice be
heard.
