RANDOM SHOTS - Screw 'Em, Libyan President Disagrees With Obama Over YouTube Video, Google Stands Up To Obama, And Much More!


"Screw 'Em! Don't Give Them A Dime Of Our Money For Killing Our People!"    

Right now, our flag, American flags are being burned across the Middle-East by Muslims who Obama said would respect us and "like" us more if Washington coddled up to them.

We have been told by Obama how Islam has given so much to the world in the form of peace and technology and so on.
Yet all I can go on is what I see, they produce death and destruction! They live in anarchy and apparently enjoy it. Yes, there are some calm heads in the Middle-East, but they seem almost non-existent is a sea of crazies.

Now the terrorist group the Muslim Brotherhood is calling of  their suggested "Million-Man March" against us.

Imagine that, but don't think it's about wanting peace and friendship with America.

After calling for a "million-man march" today against the United States in response to an anti-Muhammad video, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood suddenly reversed itself and called it off.

Supposedly it realized that it was fanning the flames of violent protests over which it has little control.

Liberal mouthpieces in the media are trying to say that it is likely a response to President Barack Obama’s comment that Egypt is neither an ally nor an enemy – a gaffe, for sure, as Egypt has been an ally of the United States since 1989 – but one that appears to have gotten the Brotherhood’s attention.

Nope, not hardly!

I really believe they've changed their mind for other reasons. Fact is, because of their recent actions they will probably lose Billions of American Taxpayer Dollars when it comes up for a vote in Congress.

And yes, in an election year, not even a dumb as a box of rocks Democrat would vote for Billions of Dollars for Egypt after they have killed our people and demonstrated the hate for us. Rightfully so, we should say, "Screw 'em! Don't give them a dime!"

Egypt has received $1.4 Billion in American Taxpayer Dollars each year since Obama has been in office.

Now that Muslims have murdered 4 Americans and have waged war against us for the last few days, a majority of Americans are saying "Screw 'em! Don't give them a dime of our money!"

And yes, our people in Congress are listening. Obama who is trying to steer the focus to a half-baked YouTube video wants America to still authorize the Billions in aid for the Muslim world.

As I said before, Americans are pretty united in saying, "Screw 'em! Don't give them a dime!" And yes, Congress should be listening.


Obama Attended No National Security Intelligence Briefings The Week Before The Embassy Attacks

In my last article, I noted the fact that President Barack Hussein Obama has had a dismal record of attending his National Security Intelligence Briefings known as the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB).

George W. Bush did not miss 1 day in 8 years in office. Too bad Obama can't even come close to that record.

During his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB only 536 times — or 43.8% of the time.

During 2011 and the first half of 2012, Obama's attendance at those critical meeting became even less frequent — falling to just over 38%.

Now the bad news continues.

Now we find out that according to the White House calendar, there is no record of President Barack Obama attending his daily intelligence briefing - known as the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) - in the week leading up to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American members of his staff:

Prior to the murders of Steven and the 3 others, the last time the White House calendar confirms that Obama actually attended his PDB intelligence briefing was on September 5th.

Obama and Biden did find time off the golf course to meet with Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta at 5:00 p.m. yesterday.

According to a recent study by the Government Accountability Institute, Mr. Obama has only attended 43.8 percent of his Presidential Daily Briefs in the first 1,225 days of his Administration.

The White House response to this is to say that President Obama reads his daily intelligence reports on his iPad, even if he does not attend the briefings personally.

And no, I don't know how his iPad answers his questions if he has any. But then again, maybe he never does and simply leaves everything up to other around him.

Maybe the guy writing his teleprompter knows more than he does? It's a good bet that that's the case!

Obama is really something else. Why can't he do his damn job even by attending briefings designed to keep the President of the United States abreast of what's going on?

I still believe that if he had, maybe those 4 Americans would still be alive.


Libyan President Does Not Agree With Obama That YouTube Video Sparked Turmoil - Also Says Al Qaeda "Preplanned" The Attack On U.S. Consulate

Reported today, Libyan President Mohammed el-Megarif said he does not agree with President Obama in that the turmoil there is the result of a YouTube video.

He also believes Al Qaeda is responsible for the coordinated attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans. He also said that roughly 50 people have arrested in connection with the violence,.

This is according to the Libyan President in two broadcast interviews on Sunday.

Megarif, president of the Libyan National Congress, reportedly differed with the Obama administration’s position that the attacks Tuesday were sparked by some anti-Islamic video on the Internet.

In an interview with NPR, Megarif said foreigners have been infiltrating his country over the past few months -  which has been undergoing major changes since the uprising against the late dictator Muammar al-Qaddafi.

Megarif says the attackers, who he believes are connected to Al Qaeda, used the protests at the consulate as a cover to undertake a coordinated attack on the U.S. Consulate on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

"We firmly believe that this was a pre-calculated, pre-planned attack, that was carried out specifically to attack the U.S. Consulate," Megarif told NPR.

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other U.S. staffers were killed in the attacks.

"Our friend and friend of all Libyans and all residents of Benghazi and we feel very, very, very," deep sadness, Megarif told NPR.

Megarif said in a separate interview with CBS News that Libyan authorities have arrested about 50 people in connection with the attack.

The Americans were killed when attackers fired on the U.S. consulate with rocket-propelled grenades and machinegun fire before torching the building.

Something that I hoe is not missed by our Intelligence people is what the Libyan President said next.

Megarif said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that "a few" of those who joined in the attack were foreigners, who had entered Libya "from different directions, some of them definitely from Mali and Algeria."

"The others are affiliates and maybe sympathizers," he added in the CBS interview.

This should be looked into immediately, maybe after Obama gets back from his next Golf game!


Google Rejects White House Request to Pull Muhammad Film Clip

As we all know, the best publicity is controversy. And yes, like others, I decided to go to YouTube and find out what all the talk was about. 

Before I go into my taking a shot at what's going on between Google and the Obama Administration, I have to say that the YouTube video that the Obama White House is trying to say incited all of this appears more a comedy than anything anyone would take serious.

It looks like a poorly made spoof on the religion of Islam, just like other spoofs that I've seen on Christianity. A few parts of it is actually funny in a goofy stupid sort of way. Cheesy may be the right word for it. 

If you want to take a look for yourself, click here: Innocence of Muslims - Muhammad Movie 

For the Obama White House to blame that video for all of this is really stretching it.

I really believe that Obama doesn't want to admit that his 2009 Apology Tour through the Middle-east didn't work out very well - and his foreign policy is a flop.

On Friday, September 14th, Google rejected a request by the White House to reconsider its decision to keep online a YouTube movie clip that the Obama is trying to say is controversial to Muslims.

The Obama administration has got the liberal news media all on script to spin the tale that a hardly viewed YouTube video is the reason that the Muslim world has ignited in anti-American protests.

It couldn't be because of Obama dismal Middle-east policy, or is harping on the fact that the Muslims are no longer a threat because he personally went out and killed Osama Bin Laden with his own hands - or could it?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s insistence that the U.S. government had "absolutely nothing to do with" the “disgusting and reprehensible” anti-Islam movie that the Obama administration is blaming on the violent demonstrations.

Google said it was censoring the video in India and Indonesia after blocking it on Wednesday in Egypt and Libya, where U.S. embassies have been stormed by protesters enraged over depiction of the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud and philanderer.

I guess the truth hurts. I'm sure no one would want to face facts like the one about how Muhammad violated humanity by marrying a 6 year old girl.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were killed in a well coordinated attack on the embassy in Benghazi.

Google said was further restricting the clip to comply with local law rather than as a response to political pressure.

"We've restricted access to it in countries where it is illegal such as India and Indonesia, as well as in Libya and Egypt, given the very sensitive situations in these two countries," the company said. "This approach is entirely consistent with principles we first laid out in 2007."

White House officials had asked Google earlier on Friday to reconsider whether the video had violated YouTube's terms of service.

Google said on Wednesday that the video was within its guidelines.

U.S. authorities said on Friday that they were investigating whether the film's producer, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a 55-year old Egyptian Coptic Christian living in Southern California, had violated terms of his prison release - how I don't know?

But I'm sure the Obama White House using the power of the Justice Department will find a way to make this guy's silly comedy video a scape-goat. 

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was convicted in 2010 for bank fraud and released from prison on probation last June.

I tip my hat to Google for standing up to the political pressure of the Obama White House.


Newt  Gingrich says "Obama Doesn’t Realize Radical Islam Is at War With Us!".

I can't help but agree that President Barack Obama is so wedded to his liberal policies that he can’t comprehend the meaning of the attacks against us in Libya and Egypt — radical Islam is at war with us.

That's what Newt Gingrich says, and he's right!

The president and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the “senseless” violence, he notes on Politico.

“This concept of ‘senseless violence’ is at the heart of the left’s refusal to confront the reality of radical Islamists,” the former House speaker says. “These are not acts of senseless violence. These are acts of war. . . . It is tragic that the president is so committed to a leftist world view that he cannot allow himself to face these facts.”

The attacks in Libya and Egypt almost certainly were coordinated, Gingrich writes. Yet, “the left is desperate to deal with each new incident as though it is occurring in isolation. . . . Because of congressionally-imposed limitations and administrative and bureaucratic timidity, the fact is we know remarkably little about our enemies.”

The president is much to blame, Gingrich argues. “The policies of Obama have made our intellectual incoherence and strategic incompetence even worse. It is no accident that the embassy in Cairo issued a groveling statement, apologizing to the haters for having inconvenienced them with American freedom of speech.”

Look at White House policy in the Mideast in comparison to its policy at home, Gingrich says. “The Obama administration is waging war on the Catholic Church while appeasing the most extreme elements of Islam. This is the bizarre situation we now find ourselves in.”

You have to admit, when Newt Gingrich is right - he's right real well! And yes, this is one of those times when he hits the nail right on the head.

The president's foreign policy is an utter failure. Obama has given the "radical" Muslims who apparently rule the Muslim World encouragement to do what they are doing. He is to blame for this fire storm in the Middle-East.

It's not some goofy YouTube video, it's not Bush's fault, it's not the Republicans in the House of Representatives fault, it is his, he owns it, and like our sour economy - he should take responsibility for what he has done.

Obama followed in the same exact footsteps of President Jimmy Carter by allowing himself to be seen as a spineless timid American President. He has made all of the same mistakes that Carter had done back in the late 1970s that led to the Iranian Hostage Crisis.

Now we the American people are reaping the rewards from Obama acting like a weak sister among hungry jackals. I'm very surprised that they killed the Ambassador instead of taking him hostage and allowing history to completely repeat itself:

First by having the worse economic policies since Jimmy Carter in the real last Depression, and now in the sacking of one of our Embassies in the Middle-East.

And by the way, anyone who knows anything about how our enemy operates in this War On Terror - and it is that, no matter what Obama and his gay friends say - they use Anniversaries and other significant events to launch attacks.

Why weren't we ready, prepared, or at least put on alert? It's probably just another Obama screw up!

Now that we've had Americans killed at our Embassy, where's big mouth Joe Biden screaming out "Osama Is Dead, and GM is alive!"

I can't help but wonder if someone in the Middle-East heard big mouth Biden's words? After all, their reply in response to Joe Biden has been "We have 1.5 Billion Osama Bin Laden's!"


Colorado School Seizes Catholic Rosary Prayer Beads From A Student, And Has The Nerve To Call The Catholic Rosary A "Gang" Symbol

School Officials at a Colorado high school confiscated Catholic Rosary Prayer Beads from a student, claiming the religious necklace is affiliated with gangs and disruptive to learning.

The Rosary is from the Latin word rosarium, which stands for rose garden or "garland of roses".

They are a traditional Catholic devotion. While such prayer beads have been around for a long time, today they can also be used as devotional beads.

A set of rosary prayer beads as used to worship holds special meaning to the person who has them.

My own grandmother gave me my first rosary with I had my First Holy Communion at St Patrick's Church in Kaimuki in Hawaii.

To Catholics, our First Holy Communion is a pretty big deal. It is the ceremony for a Catholic's first reception of the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

I carried them in my pocket when I attended mass, and even wore them around my neck when I was in the Marine Corps. The rosary that my grandmother gave me is still cherished by me to this day.

Manuel Vigil, a 16-year-old junior at Thompson Valley High School in Loveland, said the school administrators offered no explanation when they seized his rosary beads twice since school started three weeks ago, KDVR reported.

"They tell me I can’t wear them," Vigil told the station, adding that he wears the beads to protect himself from harm. "I use them for prayer. I feel safe when I have them on," he said.

Sounds Like A Bogus Claim in Thompson High!

Officials, however, claim the religious necklace is not safe for school. "That’s typically not what we want for a safe environment for school," Thompson Valley School District spokesperson Margaret Crespo told KDVR.

Margaret Crespo claims the school gave Manuel Vigil two options before confiscating the beads. She said administrators asked him to either take them off or put them inside his shirt.

"You’re not giving us an alternative than to remove it," Margaret Crespo claims Vigil was told.

But Vigil said he only got a demand from the school, not an option.
"If he would have given me that option, I would have put it in my shirt," he said.

While Colorado is having trouble with Catholic rosaries, some Michigan schools permit "religious" knives into schools there in the form of knives.

It seems that Michigan schools see tolerance of different faiths as a vital part of the foundation of American freedom. Imagine that.

As it is supposed to be, since we do not have a national religion - all religions exist side by side here. But we also have reasonable limits on how people worship, meaning that one religion cannot claim exemption when their practices infringe or threaten the rights of others.

Such was the argument in Michigan where students who follow the Sikh faith have been granted permission to carry into schools the small dagger known as the Kirpan.

The Sikh Kirpan is a symbolic knife and is usually dull. It is assumed that in that state that it is about as dangerous as a butter knife.

The initial ban was ordered after a 4th grader was found to be carrying the dull knife and parents raised questions.

Since that time, members of the Sikh presented their case to the school board and the ban has been lifted, allowing for the Kirpans to be carried into classrooms.
Because of security concerns these days, many school districts around the country make it so that students enter buildings each day through metal detectors designed to protect all students from guns and knives.

In order to guarantee security for all, the question put to Michigan last year was simple: will Sikh students who bring their Kirpans to class will be asked to show that the knives are not sharpened, dull, and can't be used to hurt someone?  And if so, would they be allowed in schools.

Some wondered if they were wearing knives under the cloak of religious freedom?

That should be a legitimate concern, those Kirpans are knives! Dull or not, they are knives!

On the contrary is wearing a Catholic rosary. They only means you are Catholic. That's it, nothing else!

It doesn't mean you are in a gang or anything other than a member of the Catholic Church. As fragile as they are, I don't see anyone attacking someone with prayer beads.

Yes, they only mean that the person in possession of them is Catholic. They are non-offensive except to liberal school officials who want to use what power they have to tear at Christians of all denominations.

For a while, it was handkerchiefs in your back pocket, ball caps worn sideways, football jerseys, and on and on. All are supposedly "gang" related.

And by the way, what if they are a "gang" symbol? Does that mean that a school thinks it has the right to take away the religious freedom of a student? Who the Hell do they think they are?

What makes them think that they can stop a Catholic from wearing his rosary or saying a prayer before a Math test? Gangs wear all sorts of items of symbols and clothing to identify themselves?

What makes her think its only Catholic rosaries that are gang symbols? What would she and the other Thompson Valley High School officials do if they found out that at least half of their students were wearing "gang" related items, colors or apparel or symbols in one way or another by accident or design?

Would they ban handkerchiefs, ball caps, sports jerseys, all types of athletic shoes? How about denim jackets, khaki pants, Levi jeans, muscle shirts, khaki shirts, plaid shirts, solid black t-shirts, solid white t-shirts -  see my point yet?

If this is not simply some bogus way to attack Christians in public schools, and yes they are really concerned about "gang" activity, then why is she and others allowing "gangs" to intimidate them into thinking and acting irrationally?

As for Manuel Vigil's Catholic Rosary, I know for fact that I wore one overseas while in the Marine Corps. I know for fact that right now there are others Catholics who are wearing a rosary or have one on them while serving in our military at home and abroad.

Isn't it a shame that they are fighting for rights that are not threatened on the battlefields overseas, but here at home by ignorant anti-Christians like those school officials at Thompson Valley High School in Loveland, Colorado.

If you think they have more important things to worry about than picking on one boy for wearing his rosary, give them a call at (970) 613-7900 Fax (970) 613-7909

Thompson Valley High School is located at 1669 Eagle Drive Loveland, Colorado 80537.


The Grace Foundation And My Search For A Horse!

I've been looking into adopting a horse that is big enough to carry me comfortably.

A Belgian/Quarter Horse cross is the breed that I'm looking into right now. I was in Old Town Sacramento for Gold Rush Days and met a mounted Sacramento Police Officer on a great looking, very stout, Belgian/Quarter Horse cross.

I liked its temperament and disposition, conformation and the fact that it was really a big built horse. So no, I have put out applications to a few places looking for one for me to ride. One that I can ride and not worry if I'm simply too heavy for it.

I've gotten a lead on a place that may just be the place to help me. Its called The Grace Foundation.
The Grace Foundation is a place that I've heard about a while but didn't know what they did.

According to their website, their "mission is to protect, care for, and heal these two important groups:  
  • Children
  • Abused and Neglected Animals
 Since its founding in 2004, The Grace Foundation has been dedicated to saving the lives of horses and other animals. Grace provides critical care and rehabilitation for abused and neglected horses, livestock, dogs, and other animals.

Many of these animals are then utilized for equine-assisted learning and therapeutic programs for youth and children. Since its inception, The Grace Foundation has helped thousands of kids who are at-risk or have suffered from abuse and neglect themselves.

Grace also offers programs for people of all ages that are struggling with autism and other physical and emotional challenges, as well as a variety of youth leadership programs and life science classes."

The Grace Foundation is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Organization. If you're interested in contacting them. They can be contacted at (916) 941-0800. Their mailing address is PO Box 4692, El Dorado Hills, Ca 95762

They are located at 5800 Latigo Ln. El Dorado Hills, California, 95762. And if you'd like to visit their website, you can click on The Grace Foundation

I've got an application with them right now. I'm sure hoping they can help me find what I'm looking for.
Of course, as everyone knows, you can't just look in one place.

So while I'm waiting to hear from the Grace Foundation, I'm searching the Internet for Belgian/Quarter Horse cross horses.


To My Readers: An Apology

Someone sent me an nice e-mail telling me to get off my backside and write more. She actually chewing my ass for not posting articles faster lately..

All I can say to that is that I'm sorry for not being more prompt with my articles this week. I'm apologizing to all of you for not having more articles this month in general.

I really try to post something every other day unless the mode hits me. So far I'm getting some pretty good reviews about my stuff, so please hang in there.

Besides all of the political stuff these days, I'm also working on more American history that I think you might find fascinating. And yes, horse information as well. All as soon as I can, I promise.

A few things are slowing me down right now.

Whether I like it or not, my computer is old and sometimes it simply does not want to go along with the program and work right. It's very frustrating when I'm trying to write when it stalls out on me. The hang time is horrible.

Of course, the worse problem is losing a whole article when the screen goes blank. When that happens, I can only hope that all of my research and work hasn't gone down the drain.

I've been pretty good about keeping this thing working, but I have to admit that working on a computer can be very frustrating.

Besides explaining to you the frustration that I'm having keeping my computer going, I'm also apologizing because my late articles are a result of things being real busy around here.

Of course, I've been hard at work trying to get a head start on winter by getting my small barn and other things ready around here.

And yes, my responsibilities at the local American Legion hasn't lightened up lately.

But one of the other reasons that I have been so busy has to do with horses, please understand they can take time away from everything else - including writing.

Lately I've been really trying to put more time in working a couple of horses around here. Both are mustangs, and though both will never be ridable, I'd like one to be ridable - and the other at least a little easier to handle.

I've written about Buckshot before. He's actually real easy to handle, but was mistreated and those scars run deep. The thing about Buckshot is that I really think he would make a good riding horse. He is built like a tank, and really is a nice horse.

The other is Dancer who was adopted through the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) Adoption Program.

She was too much horse for the guy who adopted her, so he sold her to a lady who tried dealing with her for a year until I got her about 5 years ago.

She was wild and I didn't expect to ride her. The reason that I really expect to ride her is that she's only about 14 hands high. So yes, she's small. But, she is built pretty nice and I took her because I couldn't see her hurting some greenhorn who hasn't been around horses - nevertheless mustangs.

She is a real nice horse. Her only problem is that she gets "herd bound" and refuses to cooperate sometimes. So when that starts, I have to separate her and work on bonding with her all over again.

Mustangs can be some great riding horses, but I would find one that's been gentled to ride - or have someone in mind who can gentle it - before buying one.

If you'd like to check out the National Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Program, click on: Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Program

Right now I'm trying to catch up on this blog, I really hope you don;t mind a little more straight talk and less nice way of writing. I tend to write that way when I'm rushed.

I have some things in mind that should interest you my readers. So please know that your visits mean a great deal to me, and please accept my apology for being late with my articles.

And to you out there who told me to get off my backside and write more, well I'm typing as fast as I can!

Until next time, God Bless and Keep You Safe!

I hope to be seeing you soon!
