Vietnam...The Perception...The Loss...and the traitors

Why We Lost the War in Vietnam

By Bernie on 03 Mar 2011

Constant reader (and friend) B.W. sends me a few dozen emails a month, most with photos of a naked woman with a request asking me if I see the waterfall or the beach behind the woman. The expected response of course is, "What beach, what waterfall?"
Among the emails are many urban legends because B.W. expects me to check out their validity. The story he sent me is both true and false. Before I explain, here's the email:

General Vo Nguyen Giap

General VoNguyen Giap.

General Giap was a brilliant, highly respected leader of the North Vietnam military. The following quote is from his memoirs currently found in the Vietnam war memorial in Hanoi:

"What we still don't understand is why you Americans
stopped the bombing of Hanoi. You had us on the
ropes. If you had pressed us a little harder,
just for another day or two, we were ready
to surrender! It was the same at the
battle of TET. You defeated us!
We knew it, and we thought
you knew it.
"But we were elated to notice your media was
helping us. They were causing more disruption in
America than we could in the battlefields. We
were ready to surrender. You had won!"

General Giap has published his memoirs and confirmed
what most Americans knew. The Vietnam war was not
lost in Vietnam — it was lost at home. The
same slippery slope, sponsored by the U.S. media,
is currently underway. It exposes the
enormous power of a Biased Media to
cut out the heart and will of
the American public.

A truism worthy of note: . . . Do not fear the enemy,
for they can take only your life.
Fear the media,
for they will destroy your honor.
*** End of Email ***

Now most of my readers, including B.W., know that Snopes will usually have the answer regarding Internet hoaxes, and they do have an answer to this one, it's false. That is to say, the General never said or wrote the words in the email.
But reader B.W. doesn't just want a true or false, he expects me to put my own spin on the matter. And the truth here is that although the General never made the statements attributed to him, the sentiments expressed are indeed true. For example, George Washington never said, "Energy equals mass times velocity squared," nevertheless, the statement is still absolutely true.
So now I ask my readers to consider this Wall Street Journal interview (published in 1995) with Bui Tin, a former colonel who served on the general staff of the North Vietnamese army:
Q: How did Hanoi intend to defeat the Americans?
A: By fighting a long war which would break their will to help South Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh said, "We don't need to win military victories, we only need to hit them until they give up and get out."
Q: Was the American antiwar movement important to Hanoi's victory?
A: It was essential to our strategy. Support for the war from our rear was completely secure while the American rear was vulnerable. Every day our leadership would listen to world news over the radio at 9 a.m. to follow the growth of the American antiwar movement. Visits to Hanoi by people like Jane Fonda and former Attorney General Ramsey Clark and ministers gave us confidence that we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses. We were elated when Jane Fonda, wearing a red Vietnamese dress, said at a press conference that she was ashamed of American actions in the war and that she would struggle along with us.
Q: Did the Politburo pay attention to these visits?
A: Keenly
Q: Why?
A: Those people represented the conscience of America. The conscience of America was part of its war-making capability, and we were turning that power in our favor. America lost because of its democracy; through dissent and protest it lost the ability to mobilize a will to win.
Q: What else?
A: We had the impression that American commanders had their hands tied by political factors. Your generals could never deploy a maximum force for greatest military effect.

Is that in any way different than the sentiments expressed by General Giap? Don't bother answering.
The same thing happened with our war in Iraq. If Liberal cowards and appeasers in Congress had only kept their weaselly traps shut, our military would have been able to end the troubles in that country years sooner and with fewer lives lost. Our enemies see that we are weak and Democrats are to blame for the resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
How long will we in this country put up with these traitors who aid and abet our enemies?

The View From Chatham House ~ Unrest In The Gulf

Although I'm not a big fan of the Chatham House I do occasionally come across informative material that after my once over appears to be objective and without any suggested meddling in the internal affairs of another country (i.e. such as you find in their paper on Franco-British Defence and Security Treaties but that's another story).  Jane Kinnnmont, irregardless of her connection to the Chatham House, presents an unbiased assessment of the Arab countries currently in the news...she also provides information that the main stream media overlooks.  A notable observation is that other than the one time use of the word Shia there is no mention of Islam as it pertains middle eastern politics.  ~ Norman E. Hooben

Unrest in the Gulf Source Chatham House ( UK)
Wednesday 2 Mar 2011

by Jane Kinninmont , Senior Research Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme

Every country in the Middle East is being affected in some way by the wave of Arab unrest. The oil-rich Gulf monarchies are no exception.
This week, two protestors were shot by the police in Oman, normally a sleepy and conservative country. Bahrain, which has more of a history of protest, experienced a dramatic escalation in violence earlier this month, when seven protestors killed by the security forces. Serious questions are now being asked about the potential for unrest in Saudi Arabia, the Arab world's biggest economy and the world's largest oil exporter, where the grievances are many but the outlets for political expression are few.
The six oil-exporting Gulf monarchies - with a combined GDP of nearly US$ 1trn - have been close allies of the UK for over a century. The UK was instrumental in consolidating the power of the Gulf royal families during the era of the British empire. British political influence is still significant today, but the GCC countries' modern-day wealth means they have more power in the partnership than they did in the past. They are important providers of energy and portfolio investment, as well as destinations for British exports and direct investment, all of which was highlighted on the British prime-minister David Cameron's recent tour of the Middle East.
Mr Cameron has faced some domestic criticism for saying that there was no contradiction between supporting Arab democracy and selling arms to "democratic" governments like Kuwait's (which has the strongest parliament in the Gulf but can hardly be described as a full democracy). Oman was the final stop on his Middle East tour, two days before the protestors were shot. Meanwhile, Bahrain has repeatedly been singled out for Western praise for carrying out limited political reforms, even though the reform process had been stagnating for years. This month, however, the UK revoked more than 40 licences for British companies to export arms there.

Handout time

So far, the Gulf governments have responded to the regional unrest with a mixture of heavyhanded policing and economic handouts, but have avoided structural political reforms. Violent crackdowns in Bahrain and Oman simply brought more protestors onto the streets. Meanwhile, Kuwait and Bahrain have promised financial gifts, Saudi Arabia offered a US$ 37bn package of new public spending, and Oman said it would spend more on the unemployed.
The other trend has been to tweak a few cabinet posts. Kuwait made the biggest concession, dismissing its interior minister after allegations that a citizen had died under torture. In Oman, the sultan changed six faces in the cabinet, but he continues to hold three ministries and the premiership himself. Bahrain's king has reshuffled four ministers, but only in the area of public services. By contrast, opposition groups want to see the ministers of defence and interior go, along with the prime minister - the king's uncle - who has been in office since 1971.
These moves imply that the Gulf governments view the protests as fundamentally driven by economic grievances. Although the Gulf is famous for its abundant energy resources and massive sovereign wealth funds, there are problems of wealth distribution. In Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Oman in particular, there is significant dissatisfaction over unemployment, the high cost of living, and the quality of public services, which are under pressure from rapid population growth. These issues will not be solved by one-off handouts.
Moreover, there is widespread discontent over corruption, nepotism and the lack of meritocracy. There are calls for greater political rights, equality before the law, moves to tackle torture, and, especially in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, an end to perceived sectarian discrimination.

Political challenges

Bahrain has the strongest opposition movement, but it is now divided over whether to keep its decades-long focus on reform under a constitutional monarchy, or to seek the outright overthrow of the ruling family, which would be opposed by much of the country's Sunni minority as well as other Gulf states. The government has called for dialogue and may consider some deeper reforms than the limited steps taken to date.
Opposition groups in Oman are far less well-developed, but the events in Tunisia and Egypt indicate the potential for new movements to emerge quickly. So far, protestors are calling for reform under the existing system - but there are long-term worries about the lack of a clear successor to the sultan.
In Saudi Arabia, the opposition is repressed and fragmented. The country has not experienced the large-scale protests seen elsewhere in the Arab world. Yet there have been three small demonstrations in different regions, and the authorities have reportedly prevented at least three others. Meanwhile, seven men have been jailed for setting up a political party, and the government is showing no sign of organising the municipal elections supposed to be held this year. More than 100 intellectuals have called for a constitutional monarchy and a Shia cleric has been detained for making the same appeal.
Clearly the Saudi opposition remains weak, but the government's refusal to accommodate demands for political reform may also be a source of weakness in the longer term, as it shows little flexibility to adapt to the changing currents in the region. This is not helped by the fact that the king and crown prince are both in their eighties and have had to spend long periods in hospitals abroad in recent months.
The UAE and Qatar appear the least at risk. Their economies have developed dramatically over the past decade, despite the recent downturn in Dubai, and they have hefty energy export revenues to distribute among their small numbers of citizens, who in any case make up only a tiny minority of their populations.
Yet the uprising in Tunisia and the protests in Oman illustrate the potential for surprises. Western countries should bear in mind that Tunisia is one of the most economically developed countries in Africa, with a sizeable middle class. The increasingly well-educated Gulf population will not necessarily be silenced by economic handouts alone.

The Wild, Wild, Left ~ Al-Jazerra is real news. (Oh, really!)

The most trusted name in news.  First it was Walter Cronkite, the so-called most trusted man in America only to find out he hated America (C'mon now! you should all know that by now! Check the video out here.  He clearly stated that we should give up our sovereignty [and Hillary agrees!].)  Now we have the most anti-American Secretary of State announcing that Al-Jazerra is the most trusted name in news or at least Al-Jazerra is real news, not like we have here.  Well its all coming together now isn't it...Hillary Clinton and Walter Cronkite the most trusted pair of hypocrites this side of Global Governance.  ~ Norman E. Hooben

Source for the following: Glenn Beck

Is Al-Jazerra now the most trusted name in news? Well, that’s what Hillary Clinton and other leftist leaders are saying. The network has been gaining popularity ever since the events in Egypt, but people seem to be ignoring it’s very anti-American stance. Glenn reacted on radio this morning.
Glenn played audio of Hillary Clinton saying, “ In fact, viewership of Al-Jazeera is going up in the United States because it’s real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff this we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative.”
Pat joked, “Imagine having both sides presenter and the viewer would have to make the decision.”
“We knew it was the propaganda arm of the Middle East and Islamic extremism. We knew it. Now suddenly we’re all saying, oh, yeah, Al-Jazeera, there’s real news for you,” Glenn said.
“Why does she say you may not like it? Because they hate America and everything they do has that spin and they begin from that standpoint with every single story. America is the great satan. I was going to say, let’s not forget. They have talking heads, too. The talking heads are through their contacts, videos of Osama bin Laden and the greatest terrorists on earth because they’re playing them all the time,” Stu said.

“Who is their talking head on election night here in America? Do you know?” Glenn asked.
Glenn explained, “It was Robert McChesney who was saying we should have a PBS, robust, national PBS. We should pour more money into that. Let’s get rid of all the commercials and everything else. That’s who he goes over to help them with their coverage. That’s who they go for. He helps them and now everybody in the press, and our own press is saying, we should watch Al-Jazeera. No, we shouldn’t. If we’re not covering it right start covering it right.”
Pat dissected Hillary’s statement. He said, “You have the commercial aspect which the evil corporations are making money on their newscasts. That’s wrong. We know making money is awful. When these corporations are making money on news, that’s even worse. You’ve got debate. You don’t have the talking heads battling back and forth. We don’t want debate, and you have legitimizing a Middle Eastern news source that is completely skewed and not real news. Not real news.”
“She is not legitimizing them. She is promoting them. The numbers are going up. Why? Because it’s real news. You have the Secretary of State of the United States of America saying you cannot get real news here in America. You can only get it from Al-Jazeera and everybody knows it. This is insanity,” Glenn said.

Goodbye Obama ?

Correct me if I'm wrong, about 37 seconds into this video, does the person speaking say, "OK! Goodbye Obama!" ?

Survival In The City...The key is to stop fretting about things so much and to start taking action. ~ " can survive the economic nightmare that is coming."

Yes, You Can Survive The Coming Economic Nightmare – One Family In California Grows 6,000 Pounds Of Produce On Just 1/10th Of An Acre

If you work hard and get prepared, you can survive the economic nightmare that is coming. All over the United States and around the world there are millions of people that are learning how to become more self-sufficient. For example, there is one family that is actually producing 6000 pounds of produce on just 1/10th of an acre right in the middle of Pasadena, California. In fact, they grow so much food that they are able to sell much of it to restaurants in the area. Video of this incredible "urban homestead" is posted below. The key is to start with what you have. The family in the video below would like to have a large acreage, but for now they have turned what they do have into an absolute miracle. Yes, a horrific economic nightmare is coming to this country, but you don't have to be afraid. One of the main reasons why so many of us are trying to warn people about what is coming is so that they will wake up and take massive action to become self-sufficient like the people in the video below have.

If you are not already growing your own food, now is a great time to get started. According to The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the global price of food rose 2.2% during the month of February to a new all-time record high. In fact, this was the third month in a row that the global price of food has set a new record.
2.2% may not sound like a lot, but if the global price of food were to increase by that amount every single month during 2011 by the end of the year the global price of food will have gone up by 26.4%.
26.4% food inflation is something that is very, very serious - especially in those areas of the world where millions are already teetering on the brink of starvation.
As I have written about previously, the world is on the verge of a major food crisis. The price of corn has increased by 33 percent just since December, and according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. corn reserves will drop to a 15 year low by the end of 2011. Many other agricultural commodities are also in short supply and are experiencing significant increases in price.
So now is a great time to try to become more self-sufficient.
After all, do you really want to eat the garbage they sell you in the stores anyway? Today, virtually all corn and virtually all soy has been genetically-modified, and more "frankenfoods" are being approved by the government all the time.
But it isn't just genetic modification that we need to be concerned about. The reality of the situation is that most of the food that we buy is complete and total garbage. The next time you go to the grocery store just take a few moments and read some of the labels of the products that you are buying. The truth is that our foods are absolutely loaded with chemicals, poisons and toxins.
Those that learn to grow their own food will end up a lot more healthy in the long run.
But food is not the only area where we should be striving for self-sufficiency. Water is being called "the oil of the 21st century" and already some very significant shortages are being reported in many areas of the United States.
In fact, some cities have already started to turn toilet water into tap water. Fortunately this is not a widespread thing in the United States yet, but a number of localities are now seriously considering going to such a system.
Would you want to drink your own recycled toilet water in the future?
If not, perhaps now would be a great time to learn how to become more self-sufficient when it comes to water.
Even now, most localities are dumping massive amounts of fluoride and other toxic chemicals into our drinking water. The tap water in most cities is so absolutely disgusting that it is a wonder that anyone is still willing to drink it.
In any event, the key is not to focus on the problems once you realize the truth. Instead, the key is to focus on the solutions.
That is what one family in Pasadena, California is doing. As mentioned above, they are producing a whopping 6,000 pounds of produce each year on just 1/10th of an acre....

Isn't what that family is doing absolutely amazing?
Well, you can do it too.
For most Americans, the coming financial apocalypse is going to absolutely blindside them.
But that does not have to happen to you. You know what is coming. You have time to get prepared.
As I have written about previously, there are many other ways that you can start becoming more self-sufficient.
If you are currently dependent on a job, you can start developing alternate sources of income on the side.
If you are enslaved to the banks, you can reduce your expenses and start paying down debt.
If you have never had any self-defense training, now is a great time to get started.
There are hundreds of practical ways that you can begin preparing for the coming economic nightmare right now. Just putting up some solar panels or starting a "victory garden" would be a great first step for many people.
The key is to stop fretting about things so much and to start taking action.
We have now entered a time in human history that is going to be extremely unstable, but that doesn't mean that we have to live in fear.
If you are new to all this and have no idea how to start becoming more self-sufficient, there are a lot of great websites out there that can help you out. Some of the most popular ones are Prepper.Org, American Preppers Network and The Suburban Prepper.
But it doesn't have to be complicated. Just start to take action. Your family is going to need food, water, energy and shelter when the economy collapses. Begin preparing now so that you will have those things when you need them.

The most typical face on the planet
By Liz Goodwin

National Geographic Magazine released a video clip, below, showing the most "typical" human face on the planet as part of its series on the human race called "Population 7 billion."
The researchers conclude that a male, 28-year-old Han Chinese man is the most typical person on the planet. There are 9 million of them.
The image above is a composite of nearly 200,000 photos of men who fit that description.
Don't get used to the results, however. Within 20 years, the most typical person will reside in India.

Frankfurt Attack: "There is suspicion that the killing may have been motivated by Islamism," May have? Give me a break! "Allahu Akbar" removes all doubt!

The media is certainly part of the problem... What problem?  The Islamist problem!  Wake the hell up! First I find this statement (link is the source), "German authorities right now don't see that a terrorist network was involved." then "...the investigation indicated that the suspect acted alone and did not belong to a terrorist cell or larger network " and other media outlets were just as cautious not to place the blame on Islamists.  Let me tell you something, any terrorist that shouts out, "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) during their shooting episode belongs to the largest network of terrorists ever to exist, Islam!  "Allahu Akbar!"  Its their M.O.  (Modus Operandi).  ~  Storm'n Norm'n

Frankfurt attack may be linked to radical Islamism
(Reuters) - The gunman who shot dead two U.S. airmen in a U.S. Army bus at Frankfurt airport on Wednesday was probably a lone operator motivated by radical Islamist beliefs, German authorities said on Thursday.
German media had reported the man could be part of a terrorist cell, raising the potential threat of further attacks on U.S. targets in Germany.
"He is a lone perpetrator according to our investigations so far," said Hesse Interior Minister Boris Rhein, adding there were no signs he belonged to a terrorist group. "There are reasons to believe that he is a radical Muslim."
Police arrested the man, who seriously wounded two further airmen, after the attack. Rhein said initial investigations had shown him to be willing to confess.
The gunman, identified as Arid Uka, is a 21-year old Kosovo national who was working on a short-term contract at the Frankfurt international postal centre, authorities said.
Germany's new federal interior minister Hans-Peter Friedrich said the investigation was being carried out "at high speed" but there was no reason to increase security now.
"There is suspicion that the killing may have been motivated by Islamism," state prosecutors said, although not elaborating on the nature of the Islamism.
Media said the man, who visited Islamist websites and donned the fighter name "Abu Reyyan", shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) during the shooting.
U.S. President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he was outraged by the attack and the Kosovo government condemned the shooting. The Kosovo parliament held a minute of silence.
The United States has had troops in Kosovo since 1999, when a NATO bombing campaign pushed out Serbian forces. The U.S. troops there now are helping to oversee a fragile peace that has held since Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008.
On Wednesday evening, people lit candles in Kosovo's capital Pristina and in the town of Mitrovica where the assailant is thought to be from. Kosovo newspapers said the attack had damaged the country's reputation.
The father of the gunman told Reuters on Thursday that he was shocked by the attack, and apologised to the victims' families and the American people.
The U.S. embassy in Pristina however said "the act of a single individual will in no way affect the deep and abiding friendship between our two countries".
The U.S. Army bus had been transporting a team based in Britain from the airport to the Ramstein base, the U.S. airforce said. The team had been on its way to Afghanistan.

Ted Kennedy is back...back in the news anyway. From his brothel to his brother there was no other! Can we hear any Mea Culpas from his supporters?

I was never a big fan of Ted Kennedy and often thought that the people who voted for him were very ignorant and/or held questionable values about American politics...the latter is so obviously true because the Ted Kennedy voters also supported and voted for John F. Kennedy a brother to Ted with polar opposite views.  Ted, the obvious Socialist with many attempts to legislate anti-American dictates (and successful at some) was so different from John that the former president would be considered a Conservative using today's standards.  Of course there's another element that Kennedy voters will never admit to and that is their allegiance to the Democratic's also the reason they voted for Obama but that's another story. 
Keeping with the Ted Kennedy theme, I was extremely saddend by his death for he escaped his punishment that was due...I would have preferred that he spent a good number of years behind bars.   He had broken many laws while in office and blatanly ignored them...I recall the time he and Hillary Clinton violated the immigration laws at the Capitol steps and nobody arrested the scoundrels...the punishment called for fines and imprisonment...and that's just one of many that his loyal followers looked the other way.  What kind of values do you call that?  Meanwhile, the following story does not suprise me.  We can also find similar stories about George W. Bush when he was younger but single.  Kennedy represented the classic hypocrite in that his philosophy on life would define any meaning of the word:
1: a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion
2: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.
And yet the liberal press looked the other way always finding some praiseworthy verbiage to express their veneration to the Democratic Party even though their idol was a sot not worthy of a barstool never mind a seat in the U.S. Senate.  Well it looks as though my preliminary words to the headline story below has gone a bit longer than intended so let me add the remaining of my thoughts after the brothel revelation. ~ Norman E.

1961 FBI Memo: Ted Kennedy Rented Chile Brothel

Monday, 28 Feb 2011
BOSTON — An FBI file contends that a young Edward Kennedy arranged to rent a brothel for a night while visiting Chile in 1961, a year before he was elected to the Senate.
The previously redacted memo, dated Dec. 28, 1961, was released by Judicial Watch, a Washington-based organization that said it obtained it through a Freedom of Information lawsuit.
According to the memo, Kennedy made arrangements to rent the brothel "for an entire night" in Santiago earlier in 1961.
Kennedy was a 29-year-old assistant district attorney in Boston. He was elected to the Senate in 1962 and served more than four decades until his death in 2009.
Kennedy's family members had no immediate reaction to the release of the memo.

Ted Kennedy's Deadly Legacy For America...
By Frosty Wooldridge

Teddy Kennedy died yesterday, but his legacy grows more deadly for future Americans.  Instead of a rich legacy bequeathed upon the United States forever by U.S. Senator Teddy Kennedy, the oft-intoxicated,
blubbery fourth brother of the Kennedy clan – four decades ago – drunkenly drove over a bridge that caused the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and then lied about what happened.  But his worst and most destructive legacy for the United States stems from his authorship of the 1965 "Immigration Reform
Act" that added the bulk of our additional 100 million people into America within 40 years. It jumped legal immigration from 170,000 annually to 1.1 million annually.  Added to that disastrous environmental
legacy, his actions provoked a complete ethnic change of our stable society into a fractured civilization. How? He provided for entrance of immigrants from cultures totally incompatible with U.S. culture. He
downgraded citizenship by not enforcing our laws or maintaining educational standards. 
"We are the only country in history that deliberately changed its ethnic makeup, and history has few examples of 'diversity' creating a stable society." – Governor Richard D. Lamm

As those immigrants poured into this country, he facilitated and looked the other way as millions of illegal aliens marched across our borders to wreak havoc on our schools, communities, jobs, hospitals, language and prisons. Over 20,000 members of MS-13 gangs distribute $130 billion in drugs yearly. We pay for 400,000 babies born to illegal alien mothers annually. We suffer 28 million Americans on food stamps because illegals downgrade wages and take jobs from our working poor.
Kennedy single handedly planted the seeds for the destruction of our country per the words of President Teddy Roosevelt, "The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, or preventing all possibility of its continuing as a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities."
How did Kennedy answer that crisis of unrelenting illegal border crossing? He proposed, wrote and encouraged Ronald Reagan to sign the 1986 Immigration Amnesty that allowed what he said were only 1.3 million illegals. The true number of illegal aliens that gained instant citizenship became 4.3 million. Later, Reagan said signing that amnesty was the worse mistake of his presidency. 
In June 2007, as another 20 million illegal aliens broke over U.S. borders since 1986, Kennedy tried to give another amnesty by forcing S.B. 1639 into law with his bluster and pompous bellowing. He voted to double legal immigration to 2.2 million annually! Kennedy remains responsible for our $346 billion annual costs
paying for illegal aliens!  In Dr. Otis Graham's "Unguarded Gates:
A History of America's Immigration Crisis," he writes, "Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide, but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all – ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet."
Kennedy voted for the fraudulent Iraq War that killed 4,000 American soldiers and wounded 31,000 to date. He's voted against making English our national language which ensures further Balkanization of our nation via linguistic chaos. When a nation cannot speak to itself, it becomes fractured and separated.
While he battles with brain cancer, we battle for our nation's life. While he sails his boat around Martha's Vineyard, we pick up millions of pieces of trash on our borders from invading illegal alien hordes that he
encourages. While he tips yet another glass of wine, we struggle to maintain our schools, communities, hospitals and prisons from this illegal invasion. While he sat on his barnyard wide rear-end for 40 years in
the Senate creating the problems that now destroy our nation, we watched the American Dream turn into a nightmare.  Contrary to the editors of the Denver Post, Ted Kennedy may be likened to Nero of Rome who fiddled while it burned. Kennedy drank while we fought for our nation's survival. Kennedy ate at the finest
tables while we struggled with his voting for H-1B and H-2B visas that displaced millions of American workers. Kennedy sailed his boat while our nation sank into the consequences of a dysfunctional and
unsustainable nation.  Because of Kennedy, our successful  culture finds itself turning into a foreign
culture that failed, i.e., Mexico. The March PEW report shows Mexicans in America becoming the new dominate majority by 2050 at 53 percent.  In other words, rather than serving America and our future, Senator Ted Kennedy has attempted to destroy our America just as quickly as he took Mary Jo Kopechne's life on a drunken night somewhere back in the 60s. As she fought for her life in that car as the waters rose
above her... he escaped.  While we struggle nostril-deep in the nightmare waters of immigration swirling
around us, we may well drown, too! Once again, Ted Kennedy escapes via death while we struggle for our nation's life.

He warned Obama: "I do believe that the only way for him to save himself in this life and in the hereafter is to embrace Islam. Islam will eradicate all his sins; he will be like the day his mother gave birth to him. Otherwise, when we do implement the Shariah, obviously he will face the consequences of a trial under the Shariah court."

Anjem Choudary
President Obama must embrace Islam as a way of life or face the consequences of a trial under the Shariah Islamic court system, declared British extremist cleric Anjem Choudary. Choudary, founder and former chief of two Islamic groups disbanded by the British authorities under anti-terror legislation, is planning a Washington protest later this week in which he says he will call on American Muslims to revolt against the country and implement Shariah law. Read about plans for the United States, in "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America" Speaking in an interview with investigative reporter Aaron Klein on his program on New York's WABC Radio, Choudary claimed Obama was waging a war against Islam. "[Obama] has promised all Muslims to be released from Guantanamo Bay. They are still languishing there even though he knows they are completely innocent," Choudary claimed. "On top of that, he's increased the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, so he is a warmonger just as his predecessor was. And thirdly and more importantly," Choudary said, "the Muslims don't want democracy and freedom. Democracy and freedom are anathema to Islam and the Shariah." Audio of the first part of the interview can be heard below:

Voter Fraud what! that's what Democrats do...and they get away with it too!

I could make the statement that voter fraud exists and be absolutely certain that its true...because I was once a poll watcher and witnessed the fraud first hand.  But you know what, nothing is done to the people that are performing the scam.  In my first hand encounter I even had contact with the judge who should have came to the precinct to rule on an incident but instead she made excuses for the fraudulent voter without ever having met the voter.  In my frustrations with the judge who kept repeating that " may be her married name" (in reference to inadequate identification) I finally said to the judge, "I don't want to hear that it may be her married name one more time (she said it at least 7 times), what I want to hear from you is that it may be fraudulent and get down here and do your job!" then I immediately hung up the phone.  The judge never showed!  Now I don't know the circumstances surrounding the plea bargaining in the Dothan, Alabama incident mentioned in the video but I'll bet that the guilty person is still allowed to vote and the other cases mentioned (i.e. Florida and Pennsylvania) will also be thrown out or be the equivalent of the ole slap on the wrist routine. ~ Norman E.

Breakfast To Go...we report, you decide (Don't let Mayor Bloomberg or Michelle Obama tell you what you can or cannot eat)


Dunkin’ Donuts Egg & Cheese Wake-Up Wrap
180 calories
11 g fat (4 g saturated)
470 mg sodium

Sure, the doughnuts and pastries are tempting, but they're not on Dunkin's DDSmart Menu for a reason: They're dumb choices. The Wake-Up Wraps are a smart choice, and even if you order two of them you’ll be amply rewarded with 16 grams of protein. What do you get for eating two doughnuts? A mid-morning sugar crash and hunger pangs. Even the Sausage and Egg Croissant below is a better choice than doughnuts, but no one should eat 46 grams of fat for breakfast.

Not That!
Sausage and Egg Croissant
680 calories
46 g fat (18 g saturated, 0.5 g trans)
1,280 mg sodium

Subway Steak, Egg, and Cheese Muffin Melt
190 calories
17 g fat (2.5 g saturated)
600 mg sodium

Hats off to Subway for the line of Muffin Melts that debuted last year. These svelte sandwiches are some of the lowest-calorie breakfasts in the world of fast food. Order two and this combo provide 12 grams of fiber and 32 grams of protein—and you still get to enjoy a steak-and-eggs breakfast for less than 400 calories. That's no small feat. To compare, check out the steak-and-omelette disaster that made our list of the 20 Worst Breakfasts in America.

Not That!
6” Breakfast BMT
560 calories
28 g fat (11 g saturated, 0. 5 g trans)

McDonald’s Egg McMuffin with Hash Brown and Coffee
450 calories
21 g fat (6.5 g saturated)
1,130 mg sodium

I know what you’re thinking: a hash brown! Well, sure. Alongside a lean, protein-packed sandwich like an Egg McMuffin, a hash brown isn’t such a bad choice—though you can cut 300 mg of sodium from this meal if you skip it. The Egg McMuffin itself looks and tastes indulgent, but in truth it’s one of the healthiest sandwiches out there (especially compared to those that made our list of these 30 Worst Sandwiches in America). You're saddled with less saturated fat than you'd get from just one of McDonald’s breast-meat Chicken Selects, and it packs in 2 grams of fiber. So enjoy—guilt free.
