Michael Rubin on Turkey

This is scary stuff. Please read the entire article, its chilling.

"Few U.S. policymakers have heard of Fethullah Gülen, perhaps Turkey’s most prominent theologian and political thinker. Self-exiled for more than a decade, Gülen lives a reclusive life outside Philadelphia, Pa. Within months, however, he may be as much a household a name in the United States as is Ayatollah Khomeini, a man who was as obscure to most Americans up until his triumphant return to Iran almost 30 years ago."

Three Things To Think About

"Three Things To Think About

1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments

Cows: Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington? And, then track her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give them all a cow.

The Constitution: They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it's worked for over 200 years and we're not using it anymore.

The Ten Commandments: The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse is that you can't post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal,' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians -- it creates a hostile work environment."

American Thinker: Obama: Silence in the face of evil

"Silence in the face of evil
is always on the side of the aggressor."
- Elie Wiesel

Barack Obama, the eloquent speaker who mesmerizes the media, the man whose orations make women swoon, the candidate who promises to embrace dictators and terrorists in conversation, falls strangely silent when his words are needed to stand up against evil, intolerance or injustice. In a dangerous world with evil regimes aspiring to destroy the United States and the values we represent, the silence of an American President would be an
unthinkable disaster."

Whats real?

Trade Angst

"Suppose you were choosing a country to live in. Which country would you prefer: a country that has the world champing at the bit to put its money into or one where the world is unwilling to invest? Let's look at the numbers."
The United States is the world's largest recipient of foreign direct investment. According the Economic Report of the President, in 2004, foreigners owned $5.5 trillion in U.S. assets and had $2.3 trillion in sales. They produced $515 billion of goods and services, accounting for 5.7 percent of total U.S. private output, and employed 5.1 million workers, or 4.7 percent of the U.S. workforce in 2004. According to the Congressional Research Service, in 2006 alone, foreign investors spent $184 billion investing in U.S. businesses and real estate, the highest amount foreign investors have spent since 2000. My question to Clinton, Obama and the anti-trade lobby is, would Americans be better off if there were no foreign investment in our country?

Iran threatens to eliminate Israel

And Obama would talk to them.
Use diplomacy?

Jerusalem Post: "Iran will eliminate Israel if it attacks the Islamic Republic, Iran's deputy army chief warned Tuesday in words conjuring up Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's threats to wipe Israel off the map.

Iran threatens to 'eliminate Israel' if it launches attack

'Should Israel take any action against Iran, we will eliminate Israel from the scene of the universe,'

Gen. Muhammad Reza Ashtiani said in Teheran on Tuesday."

liberals think your stupid

Here is the beginning of the contempt liberals feel for the average American.

In Wilson's essay "Leaders of men" he explained that the "true leader" uses the masses like "tools". He must not traffic in subleties and nuance, as literary men do. Rather, he must speak to stir the passions, not their intellects. In short, he must be a skillful demagogue.

"Only a very gross substance of concrete conception can make any impression on the minds of the masses," Wilson wrote. "They must get their ideas very absolutely put, and are much readier to receive a half truth which they can promptly understand than a whole truth which has too many sides to be seen all at once."

From Jonah Goldberg's "Liberal Fascism" a must read.

Carter is completely insane

He has become a buffoon, a joke.
He is dangerous to himself and all of us by giving legitimacy to Hamas.
Just like when he said "The lives of the hostages is the most important thing."
back in 80. He has given aid and comfort to terrorists and continues to muck things up.
