The Promise of Good Things in 06

As 2005 draws to an end and 2006 is dawning, some interesting facts are emerging…

Remember the Kyoto Protocol?
President Bush flatly rejected it, the world howled! The American left howled! They pounced on George, much of the European leadership ridiculed him for his stance on the treaty. President Bush was blamed for hurricane Katrina, if only he'd signed that treaty. The criticism for the administration was harshest from the liberal left, relentless was their outcry….

Well, guess what? George Bush was right on Kyoto! It hurts them to admit it but they were wrong, George was right!

Forbes Magazine declared the Kyoto Protocol was a “fiasco”!


In an article posted at NewsMax.Com titled “Bush Was Right to Reject Kyoto 'Fiasco'” concerning the Forbes Magazine’s declaration, this was stated;

“George Bush suffered heavy international criticism for rejecting the Kyoto Protocol, but it now appears he was exactly right: The treaty is a "fiasco,” Forbes Magazine declares.

The treaty was negotiated in 1997 as a way to slow global warming, and formally took effect in February, without U.S. participation.
The Clinton administration agreed to the protocol, but the Senate refused to ratify it, in part because developing countries that were major polluters and trade competitors, particularly China and India, refused to participate in the Kyoto accord.
So right now "Kyoto is essentially a western European proposition,” Forbes reports.

But "China and India together send more tons of carbon into the atmosphere than all of western Europe combined, and the U.S. accounts for more than China and India together.”
Therefore it has become "painfully obvious that the treaty was a fiasco,” Dan Seligman writes in Forbes.”

Thanks to Dan Seligman, Forbes Magazine and to NewsMax.

Now, Everything is far from rosy in the Middle East, peace is not at hand and lions are not close to lying down with the lambs…yet.

But, President George Bush has a plan. The plan is to birth democracy in the Middle East. Democracy has been given a chance in Iraq, the Iraqis have been given a taste of freedom…. Much to the chagrin and consternation of some of the neighborhood’s oppressive governments and dictators, the idea is spreading… Things are improving, significant change is taking place…

Freedom House, a well known human rights organization has found democracy is spreading…

Read this excerpt from an article posted on the Assyrian International News Agency website;

“As the political battle intensifies over President Bush's efforts to spread democracy to Iraq and the Middle East, an influential human rights organization, Freedom House, has found that the past year brought significant improvements in personal and political rights across the region.

Reports of increased freedom emerged from Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the Palestinian territories, and observers attributed the results to the Bush administration's support of fledgling democracies worldwide.”

Here’s more;

“The findings of increased freedom in the Middle East came as President Bush has become more aggressive in defending his decision to go to war in Iraq. This week he gave a major speech and press conference refuting criticism that America's actions have harmed the region, framing the war as part of a larger program for spreading freedom to oppressed peoples in the Middle East and other tyrannical regimes around the globe.

That policy, Mr. Puddington said, was partly responsible for the surge of democratic behavior in the Middle East. "People in this part of the world want democracy. And whether they appreciate American policies or not, American policies have not set democracy back - and I think the evidence suggests that they have been one of many factors that have pushed it forward."

You can read the entire article titled “Democracy Is Spreading, Freedom House Finds” written By Meghan Clyne of the New York Sun HERE

It’s good news, isn’t it! Thank you Meghan Clyne and Assyrian International News Agency.. And thank you President Bush and company.


Then in the President’s New Years Eve radio address President Bush commented on economic condition of the nation;

Here’s a portion of an article concerning the President’s weekly address as posted on the “VOICE OF AMERICA” website



“Mr. Bush praised the growth of the U.S. economy over the past year, saying it is the envy of the world. He said the budget proposal recently passed in Congress will help the country stay on track to cut the deficit in half by 2009.
For 2006, Mr. Bush called for permanent tax relief, expansion of free trade, increased individual control over health and retirement care, and improvement in education and job training programs.”

Read the entire report HERE

Thanks to the Voice of America for their excellent work.

Everything is not perfect, one would be insane to say they were. But it’s good to give credit where it’s due…As President Bush’s poll numbers are on the rise, the economy is really doing well, America’s not suffered another terrorist attack at home since September 11, 2001. Freedom is on the move in the Middle East, just to name a few things. We can thank God we have a leader like George W. Bush, and we can thank President Bush for having the courage of his convictions. We can thank God for the privileged of living in America.

We can look ahead to 2006 with the bright hope of continued success in the spread of democracy, freedom and prosperity.

Happy New Year!!!

God Bless You and God Bless America

Communism Fails Again

For many people it seemed like a long time ago, that is of course unless you are a Vietnam War Vet. It was all brought back to mind in the ’04 presidential election. John Kerry painted himself as war hero, then as an anti-war hero. It was difficult to understand how John Kerry, Jane Fonda and others could support the Communists in the protest rallies and marches. We don’t need to rehash all of that again here.

Back in the “60’s” in America, we were taught in high school about the evils of Communism. We were taught Communism was a cruel system. The only way it could survive was by oppressing the people it ruled. Yet, the Kerrys and Fondas of the anti-war movement felt America was wrong to fight the spread of Communism. They worked against America.

Well, Communism was given the opportunity to prove its worth for several decades…. It is hard to argue with the truth…those that supported Communism were wrong, they were wrong then and they are wrong now. Communism is a failure..

The truth of what Communism is and how it really controls nations is revealed in a book titled “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.” The book is available to be read from Epoch Times and can be found HERE. It’s a revelation of the evils of the Communist Party in China. This book has played a major role in upsetting the Chinese Communist Party. An estimated six million Chinese have left the Communist Party, due in a large part to the truth revealed in this book.

An extremely interesting article concerning Communism and it’s failure in Vietnam was posted on The Epoch Times.com website. The article was written by Laura Hutton of the Epoch Times Washington D.C. staff and titled “Vietnamese, Veteran Groups Hold Forum on Ending Communism in SE Asia”


Here’s an excerpt from the article;

“This forum introduced the first printing in Vietnamese of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party ---"the book that is disintegrating the Communist Party," according to the book jacket—and discussed the impact that this new perspective would have for Southeast Asia.”

Here’s more;

“"The CCP (Chinese Communist Party) has close connections with the world's most brutal revolutionary armed forces and despotic regimes. In addition to the Khmer Rouge, these include the communist parties in Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Burma, Laos, and Nepal—all of which were established under the support of the CCP. Many leaders in these communist parties are Chinese; some of them are still hiding in China to this day."

Bounthong said that, as the Nine Commentaries has brought over 6 million withdrawals from the Chinese Communist Party, the spread of the Nine Commentaries in Vietnamese will provide great support for those in Vietnam, Cambodia, and in his home country of Laos.”

More;

“Speaking Vietnamese, with apologies for his pronunciation, Benge shared that in Vietnam there is a saying among the young people, which comprise a vast majority of the population, "When the old men die off, we'll have liberation [from communism]".”


I invite you to read the entire article for yourself, it can be found HERE
The world needs to know what a failure Communism is and has been. Those that support Communism support failure. There is no room for Communism among free people, it is an evil system and has proven itself evil time and time again.

The free world needs to encourage those that would throw off the chains of Communist bondage, no matter where they may be found.

Thanks to Epoch Times for their great work….

God bless America

Merry Christmas



Luke 2:1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to his own town to register.

4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 "Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."




This Christmas as with most other Christmases finds the earth less than a peaceful place. Christians understand that the world will not be a place of peace…not yet

Jesus told us as much in John 16: 33

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."


“In this world you will have trouble.” Jesus didn’t say that to threaten us with trouble, He was stating a reality. Jesus was telling Christians how it was going to be, “you will have trouble”.

As we look at the world this Christmas, there is trouble.


Don’t expect peace in the world, even though Jesus says in Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.”

Blessed are those that are called to be peacemakers…yet their success will be limited…One day Jesus Christ will return to rule and reign..then there will be peace on earth..

But you can have peace right now, this Christmas.


You can have peace in your heart, a peace the world can’t give and the world can’t take away… The only way that peace can be born in your heart is through restoration of the relationship between you and the Heavenly Father. Jesus Christ came to earth to make that restoration possible. You see, He came to bring an offer of peace to you, He came as the ultimate Peacemaker.

It’s as simple as asking Jesus to forgive you of your sins, everyone needs that forgiveness..every man, woman and child. Jesus was the only sinless one to live on this earth. Then ask Jesus to come into your heart and life..

For more details just click HERE.
May you find the Prince of Peace and peace in your heart this Christmas season. If you do, email me and tell me all about it..


We wish you a very Merry Christmas and God bless you..


God Bless You and God Bless America

Traitorous American Civil Liberties Union, at it again...




The American Civil Liberties Union is once again siding with America’s enemies. The traitorous, anti-American organization is attempting to undermine America’s national security.. Isn’t it time that a complete investigation is held into this threat to America’s freedom. It’s time for citizens to demand a response from their elected officials…Someone has to inform the ACLU that America is fighting a war and the ACLU is being seen as an ally of the enemy..

Read of their latest act of barbarism, a request to make public America’s spying techniques.

This article is also posted on the Stop The ACLU website..

ACLU Freedom of Information Request Would Gut NSA Program

Apparantly it isn't enough for the ACLU that the NY Times leaked classified information that we are spying on international phone calls of suspected terrorist. They now want all details released! Whether they are just plain stupid, or actually want the enemy to defeat us, the document fails to say.

Via ACLU

The requests submitted today seek all records about "the policies, procedures and/or practices of the National Security Agency for gathering information through warrantless electronic surveillance and/or warrantless physical searches in the United States …".... Information received by the organization will be made public on its Web site.


Rightwing Nuthouse says:

Words fail me at this point. The generosity of the ACLU to the deadly enemies of the United States is beyond belief. The only possible explanation for wanting to expose "all records about the policies, procedures and/or practices of the National Security Agency" with regards to the NSA intercept program is that the ACLU wishes to make it harder for the government to thwart a terrorist attack.

The reason I say this is because this FOIA request is not necessary if one wishes to take an absolutist position in defense of our Fourth Amendment rights. It's only purpose would be to sabotage the program. For once al Qaeda knows the details of how we keep track of them, it becomes much easier to develop communications strategies to thwart our attempts to monitor their activities.


If the ACLU is against warrantless searches, it is their duty to protest it in a responsible manner, one that would not harm national security so grievously. And please note there is nothing in the FOIA request that would seek to uncover who the government listened in on with the program. Doesn't that strike you as a bit odd? Rather than ask for the names of specific Americans who have been targeted, they instead seek to shut the program down by revealing its operational secrets.


I couldn't say it any better myself. There is no reason to release the details of the NSA program. Doing so would benefit no one but our enemies, and only endanger America further. This irresponsible position of the ACLU is reckless and crazy. But we have come to expect such traitorous behavior from the so called civil rights group. They oppose almost every effort our government has to fight terrorism with one hand, and defend our enemies with the other. I still can not understand why our government has not investigated the ACLU itself, they most definitely have probably cause to do so.

Isn't it ironic that the ACLU wants our government's secrets released so the enemy can see, yet they tell our enemies they have the right to keep their secrets from our interrogations?

The Politically Correct Silliness of the “Holiday Tree”

The politically correct silliness of the “holiday tree” and all the other attempts to neutralize Christmas here in America, are causing quite a stir. Some deny that there is any attempt to remove Christ from Christmas… This blogger has memories of many Christmases, there’s a conscious effort to undermine the Christian Holiday. It’s just a seasonal attack on Christianity, it goes on all year.

As much as most American Christians don’t like it, as much as it should be resisted, it is mere child’s play in comparison to what others are battling.

Christmas is a time of celebration, a time to remember the birth of the Son of God, the Savior of the world, the only Hope for mankind.

Christmas isn’t always a time of “Peace on Earth, goodwill toward men. ”

In an excellent and enlightening article by Nina Shea, director of Freedom House's Center for Religious Freedom, Nina reveals how other Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Her article is titled “The Real War on Christmas” it was posted on National Review Online.

Here’s an excerpt;

“In Saudi Arabia, Christians, a large percentage of the foreign workers making up a quarter of the population, will not be able to find any churches whatsoever to worship in this Christmas — churches are forbidden. Dozens of those who pray together in private houses were arrested and jailed earlier this year. This fanatically intolerant kingdom even forbids Muslims, under threat of death, to wish a Christian "Happy Holidays," much less "Merry Christmas."


And another;

“Christians in Pakistan will be wise to keep their Christmas celebrations low-key this year. One of them, Yousaf Masih, a 60-year-old illiterate janitor from northwestern Pakistan, is among those under arrest for "blasphemy" because he allegedly burned a Koran. As Paul Marshall of the Center for Religious Freedom recounted, three weeks ago in Sangala Hill, after word of his case got out, mobs destroyed three churches, a convent, a Christian school, and Christian homes. Last week a militant mob rallied to demand Masih's public hanging and the eradication of the entire Christian community there.”

You can read the entire post HERE
We want to express out appreciation to Nina Shea and the National Review Online for exposing the perils expressing ones faith in the Christ of Christmas.

Take the time this Christmas to remember and pray for those Christians that may be paying a greater price to celebrate Christmas.

Please PRAY for the Persecuted Church

God Bless You and God Bless America

The Defeatocratic Party

The Defeatocratic Party is ordering up multiple yards of white muslin while waiting for the surrender flag patterns to arrive from France.

Their official motto is rumored to be “Nothing’s so sweet as retreat and defeat!”

While John Kerry calls our American troops terrorists and Howie the Scream Dean declares we can’t win, another voice is heard.

As the liberals attempt to pass out their white surrender flags throughout the Defeatocratic Party, not everyone is willing to wave one.

It seems the party of the left won’t be unified in their advocacy of surrender.

One troublesome voice, one voice of reason, one voice unwilling to play partisan politics in a time of war can be heard from the left. Now the party that claims to be the party of diversity, the free speech party wants to shut him up…They have turned on him.

Of course the man is Senator Joe Lieberman, one day the Defeatocrat’s will wish they had hearkened to his voice.

To quote Senator Lieberman:

“What a colossal mistake it would be for America's bipartisan political leadership to choose this moment in history to lose its will and, in the famous phrase, to seize defeat from the jaws of the coming victory,"

"History will judge us harshly if we do not stretch across the divide of distrust to join together to complete our mission successfully in Iraq," Lieberman said. "It's time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be the commander in chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war, we undermine presidential credibility at our nation's peril."

History will remember Joe Lieberman as a hero in the war fought here against the cut and run defeatists. The Defeatocrats will no doubt all try to rewrite history and claim they were saying the same things as Lieberman. No one else will remember them backing US policy in Iraq but they will claim they did… even though their words will be read back to them, they will tell us they were taken out of context, they were misinterpreted. America will remember when they clamored for surrender..

Politics should end at the water’s edge. America is at war, not the Republicans, not the Democrats, America!

America, indeed the world can’t consider anything except total victory in the war or terror…Defeat is not an option…

There will be victory, victory for freedom, victory for America, make no mistake about it!

America needs more patriots like Joe Lieberman.

Thanks Joe, we won’t forget you.



You can read more about how the Dems have turned against Joe Lieberman in this Washington Post article titled “Lieberman Wins Republican Friends, Democratic Enemies With Support for War”
by Shailagh Murray. Read it HERE

Here’s another Associated Press article posted on Fox News, titled “Lieberman's Iraq Views Rankle Some Democrats” Read it HERE

Thanks guys, great work!



God bless America

Exit Strategy

It seems that the Dems are developing their own “exit strategy”.

After the constant hounding and outright demanding that the Bush Administration present them with an exit strategy for Iraq, they have their own. Oh, don’t think the Dems have a plan for Iraq! On second thought, perhaps they do have a plan, rather, they have plans, and every Dem has a different plan. But that’s just like having no plan..

What a farce, the party of diversity is nothing more than the party of division.

Truly, anyone with even a little foresight could see it coming. What more could be expected from a party that would tolerate the radical extremist, Howard Dean as it’s chairman? Dean’s bizarre and off the wall comments send all but the extreme edge of the radical fringe running and ducking for cover.

Dean’s recent babbling concerning Operation Iraqi Freedom are typical of his mindless rants..

"The idea that we're going to win this war is an ideal that unfortunately is just plain wrong,"

It would be much more than generous to call Dean’s statement unfortunate. It’s outrageous! Then when his cohorts Murtha, Kerry, Pelosi and the rest of the other usual suspects chime in, undermining the war effort and the troops, it’s tragic..It’s treasonous.

Once again, the party of the Democrat’s has taken on a French flavor, it now the party of surrender, the party of defeat.. Raise the white flag, throw in the towel, just give up..

Yes, the Democratic “exit strategy” may sound like it’s about Iraq, but it’s about exiting from the American political scene.. The party of defeat, the party of surrender has lost its way… They are fast becoming the party of irrelevance… Their strategy ?

Exit stage left......

God bless America
