This Is How They Do It

By John Kubicek

There will be one thing that will be apparent to you in a very short amount of time: President Obama will find a way to make the bad economy be for his advantage in November of 2012. Obama is in the process of making sure that Republicans and rich people get the blame for how bad things are going,  even with all of the stupid ideas the Democrats and progressives have come up with that have failed.

It's Class Warfare 101. It's a trap, and Republicans can hardly avoid falling into it! It really isn't that difficult, is it? Obama's proposals to stimulate the economy with further spending and higher taxes will be a none-starter in the House, controlled by the Republicans. There are doubts that even the Senate will give Obama's plan a chance. When the economy totally fails, as it will pretty soon, Obama's propaganda arm in the media will reiterate the White House claims that it was because the Republicans refused to act on Obama's plan.

There will be anger out there amongst the potential voters in 2012 due to the fact that things are going so bad. The Democrats, especially those occupying the White House, are fully depending on the anger being directed towards wealthier Americans, which then will be extended to mean the Republican Party. It really wouldn't be that difficult for "the masses" to be influenced to direct their disgust toward those that we know as the Capitalists.

Obama and his Leftist minions are playing the "American Spring" card. They are depending on the ignorance of the American People, perpetuated by the dominance of the Left in our public schools and the media, to know that it is Capitalism that provides jobs.

Believe it or not, I came up with the ambition to write about the antidote to the sure re-election of The One (bHo) when a song came to my mind this morning: "This Is How We Do It". I think that there is a way to vastly decrease the amount of influence that the liberals have over the American people. It's kind of diabolical, but I believe that it would work. It may be our only hope.

After years of indoctrination from the mainstream media, Hollywood, and "educational" institutions (more like public indoctrination centers), we've learned that black people and women have been held down (so they say), and unable to reach the top positions in politics and society. We the people should probably give some thought to using that against the Left. This may sound crazy - but no crazier than the idea that my friend Joseph Farah proposed - what we need on the Republican ticket, to defeat Obama, is a black guy and a woman. Hear me out: It isn't that crazy of an idea!

Seriously, I'd love to see the way the Democrat-controlled media would spin a Palin/Cain or Cain/Bachmann ticket for the GOP! The Democrats could not use the racist or feminist cards. Just how could they find a way to get the masses to throw darts at pictures of a black man or a woman? They can't. That is why this idea is going to throw broken glass under the tires of the Democrat machine.

The Liberals/Progressives have had generations to mess with our heads. It's time to turn the tables on them. It's time to show the people that they have been lied to, that it isn't about race or gender. We need to help people understand that the United States of America is still a great country where all people have a chance to succeed. This coming election is our time to defeat the defeatists that have tried to tell you that you have no chance to overcome the odds against you.

This is how we do it!

Don't be afraid!
WE the PEOPLE
are the MOB 
ONE NATION UNDER GOD
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

The translation of the Hawvawd study? DUH! (Bring on the Fireworks!)

By John Kubicek

Seriously, I can not make this stuff up! While in the process of working on another blog story, "Occupied Nation ~ By Patrice Lewis," on Sunday morning, a subject came up on Fox & Friends Sunday that took me by surprise.  I had not heard about this before Sunday. Isn't it interesting that it came out right before the July 4th holiday weekend?  Surely, it was just ironic coincidence.   Here is that great segment from Fox & Friends:

video

From U.S. News, on June 30, 2011, "Harvard: July 4th Parades Are Right-Wing" by Paul Bedard:
"The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century. Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. According to this interpretation, there is a political congruence between the patriotism promoted on Fourth of July and the values associated with the Republican party. Fourth of July celebrations in Republican dominated counties may thus be more politically biased events that socialize children into Republicans," write Harvard Kennedy School Assistant Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott and Bocconi University Assistant Professor Andreas Madestam.
How long did U.S. News hang on to this story before they published it? And we must also ask, was it held until a Thursday, just before a long holiday weekend, for a reason?  I realized right off the bat that the answer would be yes.  The best way to make sure a story doesn't get much coverage is to be putting it out just before a holiday weekend, and during the conclusion of the Casey Anderson trial!  Who in their right mind would want those Harvard professors to undergo a lot of well deserved ridicule for such a lame study of something that would only take common sense to figure out, leading to such an idiotic analysis of the survey results?  DUH!

The obvious facts are that seriously liberal Americans do not celebrate America's independence, and patriotism is a dirty word to them.  Therefor, it could be reasonably concluded that the two Hawvawd professors were only looking for a way to denigrate the part of the population that celebrates the Fourth of July with parades and fireworks.  That isn't even shocking news, is it?  DUH!

The most ironic part of this story is that those professors that are paid the big money for being so "smart" don't even get it!  Do they not realize that many of the people in the Democratic Party also celebrate on July 4? When those pinheads say, "How dare you Democrats be so patriotic?", this has to make the majority of the Democrats feel really happy to be categorized in such a derogatory way so that the liberal leadership could complain about the divisive activities during the Independence Day festivities! I would call it alienation on steroids.  DUH!

Here is my answer to the "Hawvawd" study! Are you ready for this?

video~ The above video is from the finale to the fireworks in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on July 4, 2011. ~

To the patriots throughout this country, from sea to shining sea, whether Democrats or Independents, welcome to the GOP!  If you got the chills running through your spine while watching the above video, I'll see you at the next Tea Party rally.  I'm just sayin'...

Lost at sea? So ... I may be a "deather"?

By John Kubicek

May 9, 2011

I do not buy into most conspiracy theories, unless... umm...

Maybe it's just me, wondering about very strange changes in the original storyline put out by - who else - President Barry.

If you haven't noticed, all of the Press - even Fox News - has made the claim that there is no question that the raid on Obama's "crib" took place, he is dead, and he sleeps with the fish. No doubt. No questions, at least from anyone that claims to be part of the media. And it has been made clear that anyone that even mentions that there could be a doubt, is... well, they are currently being dubbed as "deathers."

But wait, even al Qaida (or is that al Qaeda?) put out a statement that Obam... Again, sorry, I mean Osama - is dead! That has to settle it, right? I mean, really, if al Qaida says it, it has to be true... umm... right?  Of course! Because, when Osama ... I mean Obama... says it, it has to be true.  Especially when he had just finally released his birth certificate! No questions there, either! ... Right?

Let's just put it this way: How would the terror group know it for sure? What kind of evidence do they have that we have no knowledge of (yet)? We haven't seen any photos or actual video, the body was given a burial at sea (within a couple hours after the announcement by President Barry, by the way), and the storyline seems to keep morphing before our eyes. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't President Barry mention that there was a forty minute firefight, along with other major details that have been changing almost on an hourly basis? Every time that I see or listen to the network news, something changes.

We're just supposed to take their (the government's) word for it. The media tells us to. So, what kind of evidence does the media have that we have no knowledge of?

Wait a minute... If the press knows more than we do, why would they have not broken the story yet?

It isn't my fault that I have any lingering doubts! I was just getting ready to start celebrating after the announcement by President Barry a week ago, but then I heard that the bin Laden corpse was "buried at sea" to honor his Islamic religious beliefs. WHAT?  I don't know why, but red flags started coming up all over the place. My celebratory mood began transforming into skepticism.

Yes, I'm guilty of holding back this column because I didn't want to burst your bubble while I rained on the parades! I didn't want this one to be the buzz kill. I didn't want to spread any kind of new conspiracy theories, and I held off while the story developed.  I really was hoping that I would see something that would convince me beyond a shadow of a doubt. Well, actually, I haven't, which is why I'm writing this column.

But obviously, the media is buying into the government storyline, no questions asked. Why? Because all they want is for Barry's ratings to climb back up? Or wait, it could be an excellent plan - to actually defeat the enemy - by making them believe that we would take such a bold move to kill Obam... oops, did it again - to kill Osama bin Laden (aka UBL), in Pakistan, without their knowledge.

I'm confused. Why wouldn't we want to take Osama alive? Just look at all the intelligence we got from Khaleid Sheik Mohammed (KSM), some of which helped to allegedly find and kill Osama bin Laden.

Isn't it kind of weird that Navy SEALs had been put through military court because of an assault on a terrorist that was captured in Iraq, but an unarmed Osama bin Laden could be shot and killed, and that's cool with Eric Holder and JAG?

I'll be called a "deather" because I asked questions. I never said that UBL wasn't killed, or that the whole story was a lie. Osama bin Laden may or may not be dead. I don't really know for sure. Do you? Shouldn't Donald Trump be asking for a death certificate?

Setting the Stage - Part 6: Could the Eagle Crash and Burn?

EDITOR'S NOTE

The major theme of this column is about giving up rights in order to be secure. Four years later, my views may have changed a tad bit. The reason my views changed? When I wrote this, I felt that the Bush administration would not have a reason to use our communications against us if we weren't actual terrorists. Well, now, I am not so confident that is the case with the Obama administration. It's all different now.

Just about two years ago, on April 12, 2009, we had this story:
A newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warns against the possibility of violence by unnamed "right-wing extremists" concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning war veterans as particular threats.
And it doesn't stop there. Now we have organizations tied to George Soros trying to put a stop to Glenn Beck and Fox News. And it gets even better. Social networks like Facebook and youtube and digg.com have been ominously shutting down Conservative users that have somehow violated obscure "terms of service" (a subject that I plan to write about in the near future, with information that will support that claim).

With that being said, please keep in mind how a shift in focus from Islamic terrorism to domestic terrorism makes what I wrote almost five years ago now have an even more ominous meaning.

Setting the Stage - Part 6:

Could the Eagle Crash and Burn?

By John Kubicek

I love America. That is why this installment has been the most difficult to write. Because what I see happening to this country scares me, and I firmly believe that it could drastically change the way life is as we know it! Just about a week ago, on Aug. 15, 2006, while watching Fox News, I heard President Bush say, "The enemy has got an advantage when it comes to attacking our homeland - they've got to be right one time, and we've got to be right a hundred percent of the time to protect the American people." [President Bush Meets with Counterterrorism Team, August 15, 2006 (link no longer available)] It had a familiar ring to it. I had a feeling I've heard it before. Sure enough, I found another event that he had said this. But I had no idea how long ago it had been:
"You know, we have to be right 100 percent of the time. And the enemy only has to be right once to hurt us." [President Bush, September 30, 2004 in the First Bush-Kerry Presidential Debate with John Kerry, Presidential candidate for the Democrats in 2004: (Link no longer available)]
President Bush was right when he said it in 2004, and he is still right now. And what is so amazing is that in these five years since September 11, 2001, so far, we have been right 100 percent of the time. So far. It has either been a miracle that America hasn't been attacked since 9/11, or, the next attack is still in the preparation phase.

Unfortunately, it is more likely the latter possibility, that another attack on America is yet to come. Since that horrible day in September 2001, I've continued to have a dark cloud hanging over me, wondering when the other shoe would fall. Frankly, I've been surprised that there had not yet been another attack. But in these five years, my personal analysis of that has developed from a greater understanding of the current situation. (Which of course, this is the purpose of writing this topic, "Setting the Stage"!)

One of the first things I learned was that al-Qaida takes it's time to plan an attack. They are very patient. From the first time the World Trade Center was bombed in 1993, it was another eight years before another attack on the WTC took place, which unfortunately succeeded on the second attempt to knock down the towers. Our enemy has an advantage because of their patience. It seems that the American population has a tendency to let our guard down. This is why America needs to maintain total vigilance in the effort to prevent the next attack.

But this is where I start getting very nervous. It all seems to do with politics. I felt strongly about that during the Bill Clinton era. But even with my preferred party in control of the White House, Congress, and the Supreme Court, there is still reason for great concern.

One of the big debates that comes to mind is the ability to balance our civil liberties with winning the war on terrorism. Keep in mind the fact that we are fighting this war on terror for the reason that we want to keep our civil liberties, and for that matter, to stay alive. On the other hand, the freedom of the press allowed the New York Times to disclose major intelligence operations that the United States had been using to fight the war on terror.

Though I still want my civil liberties kept intact, I understand what would happen to our freedoms if we lost the War On Terror. And I firmly believe now that it will take all that we have to win, but it could take just one terrorist attack that succeeds could easily result in a total victory for our adversary, the terrorists. For the U.S. to defend the country, our forces need to know what the bad guys are planning. It is difficult to get people inside the al-Qaida organization far enough to spy on them to find out what the leadership is planning on doing. It may be easy to infiltrate a terrorist cell, but getting much further beyond that would be extremely difficult. So, let me ask you, how would you be able to find out what they are planning if the U.S. intelligence agencies didn't somehow monitor telephone, cell phone, and internet communications?

And yes, we want our press to be free. There would be no Fox News if some far left liberals had the ability to suppress the media. A far Right regime with the power to totally control the press would be just as dangerous. However, I believe that the American media should use their freedoms wisely, and not disclose information that hinders our efforts in the War On Terror. Hey, I know that those big stories about the government monitoring phone calls we have with Mom sell papers, even though that really isn't what our intelligence agencies were actually doing. Now, think about it, is our government going to worry about how great Grandma's tomato crop was this year? Or, are they gong to worry about calls to Pakistan or Afghanistan, which I would hope would be the case. That would be nice.

As I titled this segment of "Setting the Stage", Part 6 - Could the Eagle Crash and Burn?, I wanted to bring it to your attention how that line, "The enemy has got an advantage when it comes to attacking our homeland - they've got to be right one time, and we've got to be right a hundred percent of the time to protect the American people." That ONE time that the enemy is right could spell the end of this country as we now know it.

Okay, it would obviously take more than ONE 9/11 to completely destroy America. But it has been so long since another attack that drastic that America was able to come back, hopefully stronger than ever. The United States was hit hard, but not hard enough to devastate our economy. It was tough for awhile, but American perseverance got us out of that funk in a hurry. The U.S. may have bent, but we didn't break.

What we went through 5 years ago was difficult. That was ONE where the terrorists were right (they accomplished their objective). But, what if the next attack is by far worse? Could it happen? You decide. Let me explain what COULD be done that would basically lead to a tragic end to our way of life. But, before I do that, please let me explain my objective isn't to scare you. I only want you to be aware of just why we may have to make some sacrifices in order NOT to be WRONG that ONE time! I need to warn you, if you were to think about these things I'll tell you that could happen right before you go to bed, you may not get to sleep right away. You may not be able to sleep at all! So do not read the rest of this post just before you go to bed today.

Think about this scenario: A few terrorists sneak across the border with Mexico, in trucks cleared to go through the border with little or no inspection (thanks to NAFTA), and they have nuclear weapon components on board. Everything goes as planned, and seven major U.S. cities are vaporized with nuclear weapons. New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Seattle and Kansas City, all on the same day. Our major infrastructure centers of government, defense, commerce and finance, technology, communications and transportation would all have suffered crucial blows. Seeing how long it will be to rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, I'll let you figure out how long it would take to rebuild the vital centers of infrastructure.

But wait, I've just begun. While you may be thinking that would be a long shot for the terrorists to accomplish (which you could be totally wrong to believe), there are other things that would really make our lives a big mess. The previous scenario would be a VERY big win for terrorists, but it would take a great amount of planning and coordination to accomplish. And I am not sure if our enemy is incapable of such an attack. But let's look at one other scenario that would take much less of an accomplishment and still have devastating results for this country. Have you ever heard of the EMP weapon? EMP stands for Electro-Magnetic Pulse. ONE nuclear bomb somewhere over this country, a few miles up, will fry most of the computer processors and circuits in a very wide area. The nuclear weapon sends out a huge amount of radioactive, electromagnetic doses of energy. There was a Congressional study that confirms the massive damage that would be done to our infrastructure should such a thing happen. ONE submarine off the East or West coast, ONE missle capable of reaching the Midwest...

While you may think it just isn't possible for a hit such as those I've mentioned above, you may want to think again. Remember The Evil Axis that I wrote about earlier in this topic. It only takes one rogue country to sell a nuclear weapon or two to a terrorist organization. Iran bought high-tech subs from France. There are stories of rogue ex-nuclear scientists from the Soviet Union days that would sell weapons to terrorists. There is A.Q. Khan, the Pakistani scientist that has supplied rogue countries at the top of the President's "Axis of Evil" list with instructions and materials to build nuclear weapons. You decide.

And while you are making decisions, please consider if all your rights to complete privacy would be sacrificed or not if it meant keeping the evil terrorists from being right that ONE time. At the very least, consider which of your rights you would be willing to sacrifice if it meant that the United States was ALWAYS right.

I know, it does make me think. How much of our civil liberties would we be willing to give up if that is what it takes to win the War On Terror? But once again, an even scarier thought came across my mind. Yes, I know this will probably come off sounding like a sci-fi flick about a one-world ruler controlling our every move and thought like we were robots... Or possibly in another reality, in a parallel universe.... Do you get the drift? If that "evil entity" that wants to rule the world were to come up with a plot where our civil liberties were eroded, little by little, so as to someday make it impossible for us to be able to revolt, we would be led to believe that our security was at risk. We would allow that erosion of freedom in the name of securing our great land. Little by little...

I still believe in this country. I believe in what I grew up to know that the United States of America stands for. I was lucky to grow up in a time that my teachers in school instilled the love of Freedom that I have. There wasn't the revision of history as our children now get out of school. Believe me, I could write volumes of books about what I see happening to the United States that could lead to the demise of this wonderful country, as many of us still remember.

So, here is what I want to get across to my readers. What I write isn't meant to instill fear in you. It is meant to inform you. I firmly believe that the information that I discuss in this topic will help you make the right decisions. I know how relative my credibility is to how serious you will regard what I write in this topic. I've been doing my best to establish the foundation to some of the revelations I have had, so that you WILL at least consider some of things I write about with not fear, but hope. I am mentioning this now because the next installment of this topic will be going into various areas that touch on the "fringes" of our collective rationality. Don't worry, baby, you'll see what I mean when that post is written... Coming soon, as they say.

Setting the Stage - Part 5 - God's Chosen People

EDITOR'S NOTE

For reasons that I will believe that you will soon understand, once you read this installment of Setting the Stage, I need to include what I said back in July 2010 in the last installment of this series. It is a disclaimer that you should be aware of:
Written four years ago, I take great pride in knowing what I knew THEN! Does that make me prophetic? Absolutely not, but like Glenn Beck, I picked up on things that were happening, and was somehow able to see what was going to be in store for America in the future.
There is a major reason for the turmoil in the Mideast. Bringing in this installment of Setting the Stage at this time is so that we are all aware of what Israel will be facing very soon.

Make sure that you see the PREVIOUS STORIES:

God's Chosen People

By John Kubicek

In the past four weeks, there was a war going on. We heard about it day after day on all the news networks. And in the mainstream press, it is charged that Isreal took disproportionate retaliation against the terror group, Hezbollah, for their killing and capture of Israeli soldiers.

Just in case you haven't been following the news, I'll clue you in on a few facts about this war, and why Israel is fighting for her survival. In this installment of "Setting the Stage", you'll also find out why there are so many countries or terrorist groups that want to destroy Israel and America.

Following WWII and the Hitler-led Nazi genocide of over 6 million Jews, the World, through the newly established United Nations, decided to give the Jews their own country, their own land, the land that God "promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob" [Genesis 50:24 (NIV)]. (You can learn more about God's covenant with Abram, renamed as Abraham by God, in Genesis 15 and Genesis 17.) So, in 1948, Israel became a sovereign nation. And the Jews began returning to their land promised to them by God. However, since those days of 1948, and long before, the Israelis have had no peace.

A group of Arabs, dubbed the name "Palestinians", were supposedly displaced by the establishment of the nation of Israel. Since that time, the "displaced" Palestinians have been used by the Islamic world as an excuse to attack Isreal. I believe, though, that God has been true to His covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to protect His children of Isreal. Despite Israel's many enemies, whether it be Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, or terrorist organizations such as Hamas, Hezbollah, and the PLO, Israel has maintained a military second only to America, and has been able to fight off all attacks.

In this recent battle, the one that was just "ended" by a United Nations resolution to cease fire, there were no victories. Hezbollah, sponsored by Iran and Syria, did not win. However, there are some people, mostly on the side of the Islamofascist terrorists, feel that Hezbollah was the winner. To a certain degree, those people would be correct. That is because Hezbollah wasn't totally wiped out, and they can begin regrouping their forces and resupplying their weapons to fight on another day. So, they really didn't "lose".

As for Israel, the conflict with Hezbollah may have been called to a halt by the cease fire, but the war is not over. That is the war for Israel's very survival. That is the war with The Evil Axis. The President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, calls for the annihilation of Israel. Ahmadinejad has openly stated that Israel should be wiped off the map. Keeping in mind the danger this man, and his evil regime poses to Israel, and the world, Iran is the main backer of Hezbollah. They trained the Hezbollah militia, supplied their weapons, and even had Iranian troops in Lebanon assisting with the firing of the Katyusha rockets at Israel. Iran was fighting a war against Israel using Hezbollah as proxy force.

Keeping in mind that the Katyusha rockets that rained down on Israel from Hezbollah fighters in Southern Lebanon were deadly, they were far from being able to "wipe Israel off the map". The point is that the 35 day war between Israel and Hezbollah took the media attention off Iran's efforts to develop nuclear weapons. On August 22, 2006, Iran is supposed to give an answer to the United Nations regarding their nuclear incentives offer. And here is the very scarey fact about this particular date. Aug. 22 happens to correspond to the 27th day of the month of Rajab of the year 1427. So, why is that anything to worry about? There is Bernard Lewis, a Mideast expert from Princeton University, that explains how Shiite Muslims may pick that date for a cataclysm that will bring back the 12th Imam. And, Ahmadinejad is promising a light in the sky over the Aqsa Mosque, which is in Jerusalem, by August 22.

Because the Jews are God's Chosen People, and that He has a covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, I know that Israel will not be wiped off the map as Ahmadinejad has proposed. What I also know now is that these looming events, and what has taken place in the Mideast in the past month, are "Setting the Stage".

Some people that are reading this installment are now rolling their eyes. There's a good chance that they may believe that I am out here in the cyber-world writing about a doom and gloom forcast of things to come. And then there are Christians that will say that I am trying to prophecy the Second Coming, which is something that we don't know the time God has planned that for. But keep these verses from Matthew 24 in mind:
As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"
Jesus answered:
"Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains." [Matthew 24:3-8]
My purpose for writing this topic, "Setting the Stage", is not to suggest that I have some devine gift to prophecy. Much of what I have been writing has been based on my intuition regarding events we are currently witnessing in this world. The only thing that I take personal credit for - because the rest of the credit goes to the Lord - is that I have taken the time to inform myself, and then pass on this information to you. All the credit goes to God for leading me to some awesome sources and paying attention to the information I come across.

In the next installment, assuming there is still time to write it, I'm going to be telling you about... Oh, wait a minute, I am not sure I want to give it away quite yet. It has to do with America. And it deals with decisions that you may be forced to make. I don't want to alarm you, but a lot of things are yet to unfold, which is why this ongoing topic will continue to include the latest breaking news. And as the front page of johnny2k.com states, "Now is the time to pray for America!".
So what should happen when we find out that we are wrong about something? (It may be something that more journalists should try doing.) Just admit the error and make the correction. I was pretty sure that I had it right, too, but Joseph Farah made a point that I could not disregard. It made a lot of sense. And in these days, I have no doubt that Iran will exploit the blunder Israel seemed to have made almost five years ago.
Correction to Setting the Stage - Part 5

In the previous installment to this topic, "Setting the Stage - Part 5, God's Chosen People", I wrote something that I feel needs to be corrected, or at least, amended:
In this recent battle, the one that was just "ended" by a United Nations resolution to cease fire, there were no victories. Hezbollah, sponsored by Iran and Syria, did not win. However, there are some people, mostly on the side of the Islamofascist terrorists, feel that Hezbollah was the winner. To a certain degree, those people would be correct. That is because Hezbollah wasn't totally wiped out, and they can begin regrouping their forces and resupplying their weapons to fight on another day. So, they really didn't "lose".
In the two days since the I wrote the previous post, I have learned something. I have found out that it is NOT just people "mostly on the side of the Islamofascist terrorists" that feel that Hezbollah won or Israel lost the conflict that began on July 12, 2006. In fact, after my further contemplation on this subject since the post I wrote the other day, I would be one of the people that feels that Israel could have and should have wiped out Hezbollah, but didn't. And because of that, Israel lost, Hezbollah won.

There would be a lot more I could write on this subject this morning, but if I did, it would end up plagiarizing an excellent commentary that I just read that appeared on www.WorldNetDaily.com just this morning. Joseph Farah, founder, editor and CEO of WND, posted his commentary, "Israel's terminal illness". (You can click on the title to the article and go to that page in a new browser window [or tab].) Joseph Farah is absolutely correct, and it is said in very "stark terms" - what Israel has done by agreeing to the cease fire terms of the United Nations resolution will embolden terrorists around the world. What was done by Israel was a major blunder, and endangers their very survival, and even that of the free world.

Oh, and by the way, Iran has already began rearming Hezbollah through Syria. Israel still hasn't gotten back the two soldiers Hezbollah captured that started this conflict. And who knows what Hezbollah will try next.

The Sheriff's Vitriol

By John Kubicek

Back on December 2, 2010, I wrote a Special Announcement at my johnny2k's Blogging in Our Time2Escape blog. Here is a small portion of that post:
The original intent of this blog was to help people find other great bloggers with their own commentaries and stories to tell. It was meant to be a service for the enjoyment of the visitors to this blog, along with a little promotion for the other authors/bloggers, blogs, and news sites. I had somehow shifted the focus from that mission to spending way too much time on... well, me! MY commentary was taking over. Talking about defeating the entire purpose of this blog!
So, early on Sunday morning, I decided to put a story on that blog that told about what happened in Tucson, Arizona, with the tragic shooting early Saturday afternoon, on January 8. (You'll see more details below.)  I had good intentions, as I was only going to post the story the way I have been doing since that Special Announcement was made. (The new strategy has been very successful, by the way!). But, in the story were some things that disturbed me greatly. The story was on FoxNews.com, but was picked up from the Associated Press. It turned out that not only was the story very poorly edited for accuracy (wrong name of the shooter was given), but there were several things that came out in the story that I felt obligated to include in the blog post.

The glaring incident that caught my attention was that Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, in a press conference, began going off on the "vitriolic political rhetoric" in this country being the cause of the shooting... And, as you will see, it seemed to be an attack on Conservative radio talk show hosts and television political pundits, which I am sure would refer to the Fox News Channel.

In the venue of this blog, which is where the following story should have been posted in the first place (my bad!), I have the freedom to add a little more to spice this up, and to make my very poignant point. And that is just exactly what I am going to do! You see, the Sheriff seems to be inferring that everything is so vitriolic by the way the news is presented by certain news networks. Of course, that is just his ignorance showing through. Sheriff Dupnik seems to be very misinformed! So, before you go on to read the "rest of the story" below, I have a special video of some Fox News Channel segments for you to see. I am sure you will not see any vitriol here! And by the way, you may want to keep a box of tissues nearby. This may tug at your heart-strings. I'm just sayin'...

Victims? Some choose not to be, by relying on Faith... but I still cried for them!

And now for the story from johnny2k's Blogging in Our Time2Escape:

A terribly tragic shooting occurred early Saturday afternoon that shook the country. It happened in Tucson, Arizona. I was looking for the story, and my google search found this one for me, where FoxNews.com had picked up this Associated Press story.

Before I tell you what I thought of this news article, I do want to pass on my condolences to all of the families that lost a loved one, or that have somebody fighting for life in the hospital. It was a horrible and senseless act of violence.

But here is what really bothered me about this story, and the way it was written. Just for starters, they spelled the name of the alleged shooter both as Jared Laugher and Jared Loughner, and one time they did that in the same paragraph:
The suspect's exact motivation was not clear, but a former classmate described Laugher as a pot-smoking loner who had rambling beliefs about the world. Federal law enforcement officials were poring over versions of a MySpace page that belonged to Jared Loughner and over a YouTube video published weeks ago...
But, if that was not bad enough - clearly the editor dropped the ball on that - the story goes on and on about vitriolic political rhetoric and violence against politicians and lawyers. It was what Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said that seemed so creepy. He was really pushing the vitriol and violence thing, and you know who he was trying to blame from this statement: "When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government." Am I out of line to guess that when he said "out of certain mouths," he was either talking about certain conservative talk radio hosts, or possibly even Sarah Palin? Or maybe he is still upset about Arizona's SB 1070, Gov. Jan Brewer's immigration legislation. Sure, Sheriff, way to spread that vitriol.

So, once again, before all the facts are in, people - or so-called journalists - are trying to blame conservative talk radio for the violent act in Tucson. However, from what we read in this column about the alleged shooter, Jared What-Ever-His-Last-Name-Is, tends to fit the profile of an anarchist:
High school classmate Grant Wiens, 22, said Loughner seemed to be "floating through life" and "doing his own thing."

"Sometimes religion was brought up or drugs. He smoked pot, I don't know how regularly. And he wasn't too keen on religion from what I could tell," Wiens said.
I'll guarantee you that as more facts come out about the gunman, there will be no doubt that he is not a Conservative Right-wing Christian. I'm just sayin'....

Here is the complete video of the statement by Sheriff Clarence Dupnik:

Furthermore, from a story on the Christian Science Monitor, we have this:
A possible link between Jared Lee Loughner, the primary suspect in the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and American Renaissance, the publication of an anti-immigration group, offers potential new insights into what may have caused the 22-year-old Arizonan to carry out the attack, which killed six people and wounded more than a dozen outside a Tucson, Ariz. stripmall on Saturday.
The CSMonitor story continues on to say:
American Renaissance is the publication of the The New Century Foundation, described by the Anti-Defamation League as a "self-styled think tank." The ADL, on its website, calls American Renaissance a "white supremacist journal and companion Website" that "promotes pseudoscientific studies that attempt to demonstrate the intellectual and cultural superiority of whites and publishes articles on the supposed decline of American society because of integrationist social policies."
It turns out that my hunches were correct! And we can say, Jared Lee Loughner isn't your typical American, and he's definitely not a Tea-partier, that would turn to violence because of the "vitriolic political rhetoric." 


Therefor, my belief is that Sheriff Clarence Dupnik may just be your typical liberal!


AP: Arizona Rep. Giffords shot, 6 killed in rampage

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ)
TUCSON, Ariz. – Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head Saturday by a gunman who opened fire outside a grocery store during a meeting with voters, killing a federal judge and five others in a rampage that rattled the country and left Americans questioning whether divisive politics had pushed the suspect over the edge.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said Giffords was the target of a gunman whom he described as mentally unstable and possibly acting along with an accomplice. He said Giffords was among 13 people wounded in the melee that killed six people, including Arizona's chief federal judge, a 9-year-old girl and an aide for the Democratic lawmaker. He said the rampage ended only after two people tackled the gunman.

Sheriff Clarence Dupnik
The sheriff pointed to the vitriolic political rhetoric that has consumed the country as he denounced the shooting that claimed several of his friends as victims, including U.S. District Judge John Roll. The judge celebrated Mass on Saturday morning like he does every day before stopping by to say hello to his good friend Giffords.

"When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous," the sheriff said. "And unfortunately, Arizona I think has become the capital. We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry.[Emphasis my own]
