Take heed, my friends, take heed or these words will come back to haunt you. - Gert Willders speaks at the House of Lords
As with so many things we want everything now...we can't wait or we can't be bothered! And the same goes for reading versus simply just listening. Sure it would be much less bothersome to listen to Mr. Wilders speak as we catch just a few patriotic lines while the rest of the words go in one ear and out the other. There is much meaning in the words of this speech and it behooves us all to not only read them but to take them to heart. For what is going on in Europe today is also going on right here in America. Take heed, my friends, take heed or these words will come back to haunt you. ~ Norman E. Hooben
Geert Wilders’ House Of Lords Speech Transcript: March 5th 2010
“Freedom must prevail, and freedom will prevail”
Thank you. It is great to be back in London. And it is great that this time, I got to see more of this wonderful city than just the detention centre at Heathrow Airport.
Today I stand before you, in this extraordinary place. Indeed, this is a sacred place. This is, as Malcolm always says, the mother of all Parliaments, I am deeply humbled to have the opportunity to speak before you.
Thank you Lord Pearson and Lady Cox for your invitation and showing my film ‘Fitna’. Thank you my friends for inviting me.
I first have great news. Last Wednesday City council elections were held in the Netherlands. And for the first time my party, the Freedom Party, took part in these local elections. We participated in two cities. In Almere, one of the largest Dutch cities. And in The Hague, the third largest city; home of the government, the parliament and the queen. And, we did great! In one fell swoop my party became the largest party in Almere and the second largest party in The Hague. Great news for the Freedom Party and even better news for the people of these two beautiful cities.
And I have more good news. Two weeks ago the Dutch government collapsed. In June we will have parliamentary elections. And the future for the Freedom Party looks great. According to some polls we will become the largest party in the Netherlands. I want to be modest, but who knows, I might even be Prime Minister in a few months time!
Ladies and gentlemen, not far from here stands a statue of the greatest Prime Minister your country ever had. And I would like to quote him here today: “Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. No stronger retrograde force exists in the World. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step (…) the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.” These words are from none other than Winston Churchill wrote this in his book ‘The River War’ from 1899.
Churchill was right.
Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t have a problem and my party does not have a problem with Muslims as such. There are many moderate Muslims. The majority of Muslims are law-abiding citizens and want to live a peaceful life as you and I do. I know that. That is why I always make a clear distinction between the people, the Muslims, and the ideology, between Islam and Muslims. There are many moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as a moderate Islam.
Islam strives for world domination. The Qur’an commands Muslims to exercise jihad. The Qur’an commands Muslims to establish shari’ah law. The Qur’an commands Muslims to impose Islam on the entire world.
As former Turkish Prime Minister Erbakan said: “The whole of Europe will become Islamic. We will conquer Rome”. End of quote.
Libyan dictator Ghaddafi said: “There are tens of millions of Muslims in the European continent today and their number is on the increase. This is the clear indication that the European continent will be converted into Islam. Europe will one day soon be a Muslim continent”. End of quote. Indeed, for once in his life, Ghaddafi was telling the truth. Because, remember: mass immigration and demographics is destiny!
Islam is merely not a religion, it is mainly a totalitarian ideology. Islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave. Shari’ah law is a law that controls every detail of life in an Islamic society. From civic and family law to criminal law. It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet. Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.
I believe that Islam is not compatible with our Western way of life. Islam is a threat to Western values. The equality of men and women, the equality of homosexuals and heterosexuals, the separation of church and state, freedom of speech, they are all under pressure because of islamisation. Ladies and gentlemen: Islam and freedom, Islam and democracy are not compatible. They are opposing values.
No wonder that Winston Churchill called Adolf Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ “the new Qur’an of faith and war, turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message”. As you know, Churchill made this comparison, between the Koran and Mein Kampf, in his book ‘The Second World War’, a masterpiece for which, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature. Churchill’s comparison of the Qur’an and ‘Mein Kampf’ is absolutely spot on. The core of the Qur’an is the call to jihad. Jihad means a lot of things and is Arabic for battle. Kampf is German for battle. Jihad and kampf mean exactly the same.
Islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal. That’s a given. The question is whether we in Europe and you in Britain, with your glorious past, will submit or stand firm for your heritage.
We see Islam taking off in the West at an incredible pace. Europe is Islamising rapidly. A lot of European cities have enormous Islamic concentrations. Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels and Berlin are just a few examples. In some parts of these cities, Islamic regulations are already being enforced. Women’s rights are being destroyed. Burqa’s, headscarves, polygamy, female genital mutilation, honour-killings. Women have to go to separate swimming-classes, don’t get a handshake. In many European cities there is already apartheid. Jews, in an increasing number, are leaving Europe.
As you undoubtedly all know, better then I do, also in your country the mass immigration and islamisation has rapidly increased. This has put an enormous pressure on your British society. Look what is happening in for example Birmingham, Leeds, Bradford and here in London. British politicians who have forgotten about Winston Churchill have now taken the path of least resistance. They have given up. They have given in.
Last year, my party has requested the Dutch government to make a cost-benefit analysis of the mass immigration. But the government refused to give us an answer. Why? Because it is afraid of the truth. The signs are not good. A Dutch weekly magazine – Elsevier – calculated costs to exceed 200 billion Euros. Last year alone, they came with an amount of 13 billion Euros. More calculations have been made in Europe: According to the Danish national bank, every Danish immigrant from an Islamic country is costing the Danish State more than 300 thousand Euros. You see the same in Norway and France. The conclusion that can be drawn from this: Europe is getting more impoverished by the day. More impoverished thanks to mass immigration. More impoverished thanks to demographics. And the leftists are thrilled.
I don’t know whether it is true, but in several British newspapers I read that Labour opened the door to mass immigration in a deliberate policy to change the social structures of the UK. Andrew Neather, a former government advisor and speech writer for Tony Blair and Jack Straw, said the aim of Labour’s immigration strategy was, and I quote, to “rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date”. If this is true, this is symptomatic of the Left.
Ladies and gentlemen, make no mistake: The left is facilitating islamisation. Leftists, liberals, are cheering for every new shari’ah bank being created, for every new shari’ah mortgage, for every new islamic school, for every new shari’ah court. Leftists consider Islam as being equal to our own culture. Shari’ah law or democracy? Islam or freedom? It doesn’t really matter to them. But it does matter to us. The entire leftist elite is guilty of practising cultural relativism. Universities, churches, trade unions, the media, politicians. They are all betraying our hard-won liberties.
Why I ask myself, why have the Leftists and liberals stopped to fight for them? Once the Leftists stood on the barricades for women’s rights. But where are they today? Where are they in 2010? They are looking the other way. Because they are addicted to cultural relativism and dependent on the Muslim vote. They are dependent on mass-immigration.
Thank heavens Jacqui Smith isn’t in office anymore. It was a victory for free speech that a UK judge brushed aside her decision to refuse me entry to your country last year. I hope that the judges in my home country are at least as wise and will acquit me of all charges, later this year in the Netherlands.
Unfortunately, so far they have not done so well. For they do not want to hear the truth about Islam, nor are they interested to hear the opinion of top class legal experts in the field of freedom of expression. Last month in a preliminary session the Court refused fifteen of the eighteen expert-witnesses I had requested to be summoned.
Only three expert witnesses are allowed to be heard. Fortunately, my dear friend and heroic American psychiatrist, Dr. Wafa Sultan is one of them. But their testimony will be heard behind closed doors. Apparently the truth about Islam must not be told in public, the truth about Islam must remain secret.
Ladies and gentlemen, I’m being prosecuted for my political beliefs. We know political prosecution to exist in countries in the Middle East, like Iran and Saudi-Arabia, but never in Europe, never in the Netherlands.
I’m being prosecuted for comparing the Qur’an to ‘Mein Kampf’. Ridiculous. I wonder if Britain will ever put the beliefs of Winston Churchill on trial… Ladies and gentlemen, the political trial that is held against me has to stop.
But it is not all about me, not about Geert Wilders. Free speech is under attack. Let me give you a few other examples. As you perhaps know, one of my heroes, the Italian author Oriana Fallaci had to live in fear of extradition to Switzerland because of her anti-Islam book ‘The Rage and the Pride’. The Dutch cartoonist Nekschot was arrested in his home in Amsterdam by 10 police men because of his anti-Islam drawings. Here in Britain, the American author Rachel Ehrenfeld was sued by a Saudi businessman for defamation. In the Netherlands Ayaan Hirsi Ali and in Australia two Christian pastors were sued. I could go on and on. Ladies and gentlemen, all throughout the West freedom loving people are facing this ongoing ‘legal jihad’. This is Islamic ‘lawfare’. And, ladies and gentlemen, not long ago the Danish cartoonist Westergaard was almost assassinated for his cartoons.
Ladies and gentlemen, we should defend the right to freedom of speech. With all our strength. With all our might. Free speech is the most important of our many liberties. Free speech is the cornerstone of our modern societies. Freedom of speech is the breath of our democracy, without freedom of speech our way of life our freedom will be gone.
I believe it is our obligation to preserve the inheritance of the brave young soldiers that stormed the beaches of Normandy. That liberated Europe from tyranny. These heroes cannot have died for nothing. It is our obligation to defend freedom of speech. As George Orwell said: “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear”.
Ladies and gentlemen, I believe in another policy, it is time for change. We must make haste. We can’t wait any longer. Time is running out. If I may quote one of my favourite American presidents: Ronald Reagan once said: “We need to act today, to preserve tomorrow”. That is why I propose the following measures, I only mention a few, in order to preserve our freedom:
First, we will have to defend freedom of speech. It is the most important of our liberties. In Europe and certainly in the Netherlands, we need something like the American First Amendment.
Second, we will have to end and get rid of cultural relativism. To the cultural relativists, the shari’ah socialists, I proudly say: Our Western culture is far superior to the Islamic culture. Don’t be afraid to say it. You are not a racist when you say that our own culture is better.
Third, we will have to stop mass immigration from Islamic countries. Because more Islam means less freedom.
Fourth, we will have to expel criminal immigrants and, following denaturalisation, we will have to expel criminals with a dual nationality. And there are many of them in my country.
Fifth, we will have to forbid the construction of new mosques. There is enough Islam in Europe. Especially since Christians in Turkey, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Indonesia are mistreated, there should be a mosque building-stop in the West.
And last but not least, we will have to get rid of all those so-called leaders. I said it before: Fewer Chamberlains, more Churchills. Let’s elect real leaders.
Ladies and gentlemen: To the previous generation, that of my parents, the word ‘London’ is synonymous with hope and freedom. When my country was occupied by the national-socialists the BBC offered a daily glimpse of hope in my country, in the darkness of Nazi tyranny. Millions of my fellow country men listened to it, underground. The words ‘This is London’ were a symbol for a better world coming soon.
What will be broadcasted forty years from now? Will it still be “This is London”? Or will it be “This is Londonistan”? Will it bring us hope? Or will it signal the values of Mecca and Medina? Will Britain offer submission or perseverance? Freedom or slavery? The choice is yours. And in the Netherlands the choice is ours.
Ladies and gentlemen, we will never apologise for being free. We will and should never give in. And, indeed, as one of your former leaders said: We will never surrender.
Freedom must prevail, and freedom will prevail.
Thank you very much.
Please watch the video below...and remember this: If you don't rid this country of Islam, Islam will rid this country from you.

The person who sent me this video knows I'm not a fan of Alex Jones, but because of the guests and the topic, asked me to take a look at the video.
The more we know and understand New World Order intentions the better off we will be. Take a look.

Top advisers to President Obama are close to a decision recommending that the self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks be prosecuted in a military tribunal, The Washington Post reported Friday, citing unnamed administration officials.
According to the report, the president's advisors have grown increasingly wary of bipartisan opposition to the planned civilian federal trial in New York City, mere blocks from where nearly 3,000 Americans were killed in the spectacular attack on the World Trade Center.

Video: Scott Brown Calls for $80B Tax Cut
Nearly one month to the day of entering the Senate after a race that rocked U.S. politics, GOP Sen. Scott on Thursday announced his first piece of legislation -- a $80 billion payroll tax cut.
The Immediate Tax Relief for America's Workers Act targets mostly working class Americans, those employees making up to about $200,000, with a temporary tax cut that would, according to data released from Brown's office, save the average worker "about $100 a month for a total of at least $500 for individuals and $1,000 for working couples," Fox News reported.
Editor’s Note: See video of Sen. Scott Brown’s first speech below.
The $80 billion is currently "stuck in a virtual Washington slush fund," Brown said in his speech.
"Providing immediate across-the-board tax relief to working families is not complicated economic policy – it’s simple and common economic sense," he added.
Brown's office, in a statement, said, "Families could immediately use their returned tax dollars to provide for their families and put back into the struggling economy to spur job creation."
Brown spokeswoman Gail Gitcho tells Fox it is not clear when the senator will offer this provision. There is a jobs bill on the Senate floor right now. It is possible Sen. GOP Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, could include Brown's legislation as one of the GOP amendments that will be offered.
The Massachusetts Republican angered his colleagues recently by breaking with the vast majority of his party to help Democrats break a GOP-led filibuster of the first jobs bill, this ought to bring him back into the fold.

Subject: THREE CHEERS FOR OBAMA!!!!
ginal Message -----
Subject: [Fwd: Fw: ???THREE CHEERS FOR BARACK OBAMA!???]
This is a different perspective from those we usually read
That’s right - I will say it: “THREE CHEERS FOR BARACK OBAMA!”
He destroyed the Clinton Political Machine - Driving a stake thru the heart of Hillary's Presidential aspirations - something no Republican was ever able to do. Remember when a Hillary Presidency scared the daylights out of you!
He killed off the Kennedy Dynasty - No more Kennedy's trolling Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home. American women and Freedom are safer tonight!
He is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes!
Dennis Moore had never lost a race - quit
Evan Bayh had never lost a race - quit
Byron Dorgan - had never lost a race - quit
Harry Reid - bid for re-election doesn't look good
These are just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama has destroyed! By the end of 2010 dozens more will be!
In December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In the last two election cycles they had picked up 14 senate seats and 52 house seats. The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party.
In one year Obama put a stop to all of this and will probably give the house, if not the senate back to the Republicans..
He has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. Every Generation seems to need to relearn the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge. He is bringing home the lesson very well!
Liberals tax, borrow and spend - check
Liberals won't bring themselves to protect America - check
Liberals want to take over the economy - check
Liberals think they know what is best for everyone - check
Liberals aren't happy till they are running YOUR life - check
He has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan.
In one year he rejuvenated the Conservative movement and brought out to the streets millions of Freedom-Loving Americans.
Name me one other time in your life that you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America!
In all honesty, one year ago I was more afraid than I had ever been in my life. Not of the economy, but of the direction our country was going. I thought Americans had forgotten what this country was all about. My neighbors, friends, and strangers proved to me that my lack of confidence of the Greatness and Wisdom of the American people was flat out wrong.
When the American People wake up, no smooth-talking teleprompter-reader can fool them!
Barack Obama woke up these Great Americans!
Again I want to say, “Thank you, Barack Obama!”

|I Was A 'Useful Idiot' |
February 17, 2010
To my chagrin, I finally realized that no matter how thin the pancake, there are always two sides. And I had only been exposed to one. I was the quintessential 'useful idiot.'
The term 'useful idiot' was originally coined by Russian mass-murder Lenin, referring to blind defenders and apologists for the Soviet Union in the Western democracies.
This doesn't make me wise, but at least I am no longer an unwitting pawn in someone else's agenda. Or a useful idiot.

Back in 2008 prior to the November elections just who was predicting an unemployment rate of 10% (and inflation greater than 20%) ? Nobody? Wrong!
In case you haven't noticed these figures have arrived and in many places throughout the country they are doubled the predicted rate. During an interview with Peter Schiff in October of 2008, Glenn Beck mentions these numbers and he was right on the money (both the percentage and the time frame). Of course all of us who have the same "common sense" that Glenn speaks of knew exactly the same. In case you have an interest, this video was originally posted on this website back on October 14, 2008, the day after Beck's interview...you can find it accompanied by much commentary by clicking here. ~ Norman E. Hooben
Remember what I said in my previous post, "This is serious stuff...", well others are making the same claim (see Michelle Bachman's quote below). It is pretty much known by an ever increasing number of people that this administration is probably the most corrupt in the history of America; it least it is in modern times. But the question is, "Why are Americans so complacent as to do nothing about the destruction of their country?" Just what is it going to take to rile up enough people to run these radical leftists out of town (out of the country would be more appropriate!). Do most of you think by waiting for election day will solve these problems? I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you wait that long we may no longer have a country that we can call America. And the other problem is, those that should be getting this message won't; they're all at the mall. ~ Norman E. Hooben

A White House without restraint
Yesterday may be the day the White House officially went over the top. Nice Deb calls it The Politics of OMG WTF? See her post for details on a secret massive federal land grab which Obama can accomplish with "just the stroke of a pen;" the administration's use of George Soros and company to discredit inconvenient findings on green jobs; and gazillions in "clean energy" stimulus funds sent to stimulate foreign economies. As Deb notes, this is so bad that even Chuck Schumer wants it stopped:
A study done by the Investigative Reporting Workshop found that 79 percent of the $2 billion in clean-energy grants allocated since Sept. 1, 2009, has gone to foreign wind companies.
"We are demanding the Obama administration suspend this program immediately ... [and] indefinitely," Schumer said. "We are sending a letter to Secretary [Timothy] Geithner asking him to halt all payouts for this program until we in Congress can go back and fix this law."
The senators highlighted a wind farm project in west Texas, which received stimulus aid and is projected to create 3,000 jobs in China and a tenth as many in the United States.
And now an incredibly brazen, er, incentive offered to a House member for his vote on Obamacare. Michelle Malkin:
This one looks like a quid pro quo, smells like a quid pro quo, and quacks like a quid pro quo:
Tonight, Barack Obama will host ten House Democrats who voted against the health care bill in November at the White House; he’s obviously trying to persuade them to switch their votes to yes. One of the ten is Jim Matheson of Utah. The White House just sent out a press release announcing that today President Obama nominated Matheson’s brother Scott M. Matheson, Jr. to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.Let us consider the possibility, for a brief moment, that it is merely coincidence.
Is the White House so fantastically blind and tone-deaf that it failed to detect the blood-red flags and blaring alarm bells that Scott Matheson’s judicial nomination would raise coming on the very day President Obama is wooing his brother, Jim?
Incorrigibly corrupt or incorrigibly stupid. Take your pick.
The fact that Rep. Matheson is on the fence on Obamacare makes it look very bad indeed. Rep. Michele Bachmann calls this a "very serious" matter that warrants an independent investigation into White House corruption. See the video here. (Be warned that the toxic Rep. Alan Grayson is the other party to the discussion, though he is positively mild-mannered in this clip, calling the corruption question "a distraction" and "a tangent" but making no references, this time, to Satan.) (Hat tip: Potluck)
Given three more years, who can say what this White House may accomplish in the corruption department?

THE ROLE OF THE PRESIDENT
"When it comes to domestic policy, I have no more important job as president than seeing to it that every American that wants to work and is able to work can find a job."Now, correct me if I am wrong but it is NOT the president's job to make sure that Americans can find a job. In fact, Obama's job as president is to defend the Constitution of the United States. At least, that is what he swore to do when taking the oath of office:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.That's it, pal. Protect and defend this country and our Constitution - our rule of law. It is not your job, and it is not the government's job to see to it that every American can find a job at some illusive "living wage."
Back to Savannah, that's not all Obama had to say. He goes on to say, "That was my focus last year and that is my focus this year ... to lay a foundation for economic growth that creates jobs."
What the hell? Did Mr. Changey Hopey actually say that his focus last year was to focus on economic growth that creates jobs? If so, why did he spend the entire year scaring the absolute hell out of the small businessmen and women in this country who are responsible for most of our jobs with threats of tax increases, fines, penalties, increased regulations, government control of wages and benefits - not to mention threats of takeovers. No .... Obama's focus wasn't on jobs. Obama's focus was on one thing .. expanding and empowering government. This man walked into the White House believing that America's greatness came from government, and determined to make America greater (in his eyes) by making government bigger and stronger. How to accomplish this? By seizing control of almost one-fifth of the American economy .. health care.
PrezBO, by the way, was in Georgia yesterday telling saps who know no better that his wonderful stimulus plan has put 300,000 people to work in Georgia on various transportation projects. Then, a few yours later, we learn that Georgia has lost another 140,000 plus jobs in February. In case you haven't already figured this out, Obama lies; and when it comes to inflating the numbers of jobs "created or saved" by his free spending habits he lies more intensely than usual.
That's it. Year one was totally and completely dedicated to the cause of nationalized health care. Jobs? You've got to be kidding. The only jobs that Obama really cares about are government unionized jobs.
I simply cannot believe that there is any significant number of Americans out there who are still buying this man's nonsense.

MSNBC...what is it anyway? And who the heck is Dylan Ratigan? (I think I kicked his butt back in the first grade. I think he's due for another!)
The part I loved the most was that the host – a nobody named Dylan RATigan had his producer call he at 6:30 this morning to be on the show at 1:00 PM my time. After I walked off the air (or was thrown, leftie blogs say I was thrown, I thought I walked but then again I cannot see the program when I am on, all I see is a camera lens pointed at me) he went into a rant about how I “used” him and his show LOL!
As Holly, Casey the Pound Spaniel and I were leaving the studio my cell phone rang. It was old friend Martha Zoller who had just wrapped being on the segment right after mine. She was howling with laughter as she pointed out that her Southern Belle charm comes in so handy following me in that kind of a situation :)
Here is the video as posted by Michelle Malkin (she and her readers have some to say about what went down on TV today – click here for that: http://michellemalkin.com/2010/03/02/anger-in-america-msnbc-style/
Links to other blogs are below the video. Enjoy! Oh, and click on the “comments” section at the bottom of this post, did I walk or was I thrown?
Let's all write this ignorant lame stream media creep and let him know how we feel about his message and that we do not embrace any racists or wing-nuts period including HIM!
