Another Deadly Blindness of the Liberal Left…


Like two peas in a pod, the radical left fringe and the ACLU pose a real threat to America’s national security. The liberal left is too concerned with gaining political control to be worried about the dangerous work of their bed fellow, the ACLU. Ignoring the real assault on freedom by the American Civil Liberties Union, the liberal left must share the burden and blame for the damage done..

But the ACLU is not without opponents, the ACLU will have to battle every inch of the way…The alarm has been sounded, America is waking up, battle lines are being drawn.

The following is a “Blogburst” from Stop The ACLU. Please read it and consider supporting the effort to stop the ACLU. Nothing less than America’s freedom is at stake.





Convincing liberals that the ACLU is leading us down a dangerous path is about as productive as talking to a rock. Perhaps this is because I mostly deal with far-left liberals who share the same insane views and have the same radical agenda as the ACLU. Anyone who believes that the ACLU is there to purely defend the Constitution is naive at best. Surely, there are some moderate liberals out there that can concede that the organization is in need of reform.

A balanced society can not survive resting in the fringe. A Nation only concerned with security will drift toward a police state, and one that follows the absolutist views of liberty like the ACLU will drift toward anarchy.

The ACLU proudly display a banner that states, Keep America Safe and Free, but any honest person will admit that the ACLU have done nothing for the safety of America. As a matter of fact, all evidence leads to quite the opposite. The ACLU are always ready to put the security of America at risk in the pursuit of its absolutist views of liberty.

Many of the ACLU's former leaders have noticed the irresponsible shifting of the ACLU away from true civil liberty protection into a much more dangerous agenda. For example take the words of this former Executive Director of the ACLU

The right to express unpopular opinions, advocate despised ideas and display graphic images is something the ACLU has steadfastly defended for all of its nearly 80-year history.

But the ACLU, a group for which I proudly worked as executive director of the Florida and Utah affiliates for more than 10 years, has developed a blind spot when it comes to defending anti-abortion protesters. The organization that once defended the right of a neo-Nazi group to demonstrate in heavily Jewish Skokie, Ill., now cheers a Portland, Ore., jury that charged a group of anti-abortion activists with $107 million in damages for expressing their views. Gushed the ACLU's press release: "We view the jury's verdict as a clarion call to remove violence and the threat of violence from the political debate over abortion."

Were the anti-abortion activists on trial accused of violence? No. Did they threaten violence? Not as the ACLU or Supreme Court usually defines it, when in the context of a call for social change.

The activists posted a Web site dripping with animated blood and titled "The Nuremberg Files," after the German city where the Nazis were tried for their crimes. Comparing abortion to Nazi atrocities, the site collected dossiers on abortion doctors, whom they called "baby butchers." ...

This is ugly, scary stuff. But it is no worse than neo-Nazi calls for the annihilation of the Jewish people, or a college student posting his rape fantasies about a fellow coed on the Web, both of which the ACLU has defended in the past.

None of the anti-abortion group's intimidating writings explicitly threatened violence. Still, the ACLU of Oregon refused to support the defendants' First Amendment claims. Instead, it submitted a friend-of-the-court brief taking no one's side but arguing that speech constitutes a physical threat only when the speaker intends his statement to be taken as one.

...Before anti-abortion zealots started getting sued, the ACLU had much more tolerance for menacing speech. Few of the 20th century's great social movements were entirely peaceable. The labor, civil-rights, antiwar, environmental and black-power movements were an amalgam of violence, civil disobedience and highly charged rhetoric. But to gag fiery speakers who call for harm to the establishment because others in the movement pursue their political goals with fists, guns or bombs would do terrible damage to strong, emotive pleas tot social change. It is something neither the ACLU nor, thankfully, the courts have countenanced in the past.

That's why in 1969 the ACLU helped defend a Ku Klux Klan member who had called for violence against the president, Congress and the Supreme Court. At the ACLU's urging, the Supreme Court ruled that speech advocating violence was constitutionally protected unless it incited imminent lawless action and was likely to produce such action. This case was later used to defend the speech of black militants.

The ACLU also applauded a 1982 Supreme Court decision that found that speeches promising violent reprisals were protected by the First Amendment. During the civil-rights movement, a leader of the NAACP called for "breaking the necks" of blacks who violated a boycott of white-owned businesses in Mississippi, and published a list of those who did. Some of the boycott violators were beaten. The court ruled that despite the atmosphere of fear, all the speeches and lists were part of a debate on a public issue that needed to be "uninhibited, robust, and wide-open.”


I would argue that the Constitution doesn't protect all of these extreme positions of the ACLU, but that isn't the point he is trying to make. The issue is the ACLU's curious commitment to "uninhibited, robust, and wide-open" free speech when it involves things such as virtual child pornography, but not when it involves a something like a boss making racially offensive statements.

Unfortunately, there are some people who are so hypnotized by the ACLU's absolutist views and of the ACLU's campaign for pedophilia and child pornography that they are prepared to defend an organization that has become a shadow of its former self--a group that lets its idealistic and skewed understanding of the establishment clause trump freedom of religion and freedom of speech.


Stop the ACLU had the opportunity last year of interviewing a former ACLU lawyer. He was concerned with much of the same things.

The ACLU played a helpful role in the civil rights movement defending these people, and I can't turn my back on that. I have to give credit where credit is due." "But….that being said, what they have done in the past is completely eviscerated by what they do in the present. The ACLU has become a fanatical anti-faith Taliban of American religious secularism."

"The ACLU is involved in the secular cleansing of our history. This is not just a fight about free exercise, but about the protection of our American history. The ACLU want to deny America the knowledge of their Christian heritage."


It seems that the many of the ACLU's greatest critics came from their very ranks. The division within the ACLU will continue as long as the ACLU continues on the irresponsible, hypocritical path it is on. America needs a civil liberties union, sadly the ACLU isn't doing that job. If the ACLU succeeds in the dangerous direction it is steering America, they will ironically be putting in jeapordy the very liberty they claim to protect.

Holocaust Conference


An absurd but dangerous bit of history is being played out before our eyes. The stage is being set by one of the world most outrageous leaders, amazingly (perhaps sadly is a better term) he has followers.

The world never seems to have a shortage of madmen, today won’t be an exception.

The madman that I’m referring too is Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

There has been much in the news concerning Ahmadinejad’s upcoming Holocaust conference. It is difficult to imagine that anyone can take the conference or the participants seriously. It is certainly just a slap at Israel but it sends some disturbing signals to the rest of the world as well.

President Ahmadinejad has called the Holocaust a myth and stated recently that “Israel should be wiped off the map”

Personally, I’ve met victims of the Holocaust and the numbers the Nazis tattooed on their arms were not myths.

It appears that Iran’s resident madman is quickly painting himself into a corner. It also appears that the rest of the world is keeping a very close eye on his antics.

There are several excellent articles posted on subject of the Holocaust conference. One of the best was posted on SPIEGEL ONLINE titled “Iran "Is Making Lunacy Official Policy" the posting is an interview with Holocaust historian Götz Aly.

In the interview Aly deals with the Holocaust in a way that provokes thought, and offers insight.

Here’s an excerpt:


“SPIEGEL ONLINE: The Iranian government is planning to hold a conference to discuss the Holocaust. Would you say there are deficits in how we have tried to come to terms with the destruction of the Jewish people during the Nazi era?

Götz Aly: Academics from all over the world have researched the Holocaust extremely thoroughly. The murder of the European Jews during the Second World War has been looked into with more closely than any other aspect of the 20th century. Naturally it goes without saying that we haven't yet finished dealing with this topic, and that indeed it's not even possible to. There will always be gaps and, faced with something as traumatic as this, each generation will inevitably have new questions to ask.”


Here’s more:

“SPIEGEL ONLINE: An ideology of persecution is already part of Iran's political program. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly called for Israel to be removed from the Middle East. How should we deal with this policy?

Aly: As an historian, I am not really qualified to answer that. There are the usual political and military means. When you look at what is being concocted right now in Iran -- the nuclear policy can be seen as a complimentary part of this extremely aggressive stance towards Israel -- then the international community clearly has a duty to do something.”

It’s clearly time for a change of leadership in Iran
, time to change the entire regime…You can learn much about what is being done to affect that change, learn how you can lend your support over at Regime Change Iran. Take the time to visit our good friends website HERE.

Thanks to Der Spiegel and Götz Aly for sharing

Rollin' Eggs on the Lawn

So the cover was blown, the word got out…
The entire world now knows…

According to the Weekly Standard it seems gay-rights groups had a secret plan to invade the annual Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn this year. The invaders were planning to be the first 1000 families on the White House lawn April 17th. The idea was to show-up in mass wearing t-shirts identifying themselves as LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender] families.

A couple of non-traditional family advocacy groups, Family Pride and Soulforce are promoting the event.

The entire Weekly Standard article “A Gay Easter?” written by Mark D. Tooley can be read HERE
Thanks to Mark Tooley and the Weekly Standard..Good Job!


This statement was found on the Soulforce website:

“Jeff Lutes, Soulforce's new executive director, says, "As fathers, my partner and I look forward to joining Family Pride and bringing our son to the White House lawn this Easter, resurrecting the national conversation about real people with real families. We hope our President will welcome the full diversity of American families."”


This statement was found on the Family Pride website:

“It's time to claim our place at the table.
Join hundreds of other LGBT families as we fill the White House Lawn at the annual Easter Egg Roll on April 17, 2006! There is no more powerful way to change the national discussion around our families and our rights than to introduce ourselves to our neighbors on a grand scale. Join us in making history, having fun and showing off our amazing families to the country!”


So, the idea is to transform what was an annual family event revolving around children rolling Easter eggs into a gay political self-promotion.


Over the years, wasn’t the idea of all the gay protests, parades and support groups a push to be accepted and tolerated? Wasn’t it all a movement to bring the non-traditional community (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) to a point where they just blended in?

It would seem that the ideal would be reached when no one would look twice at a gay couple, when eyebrows wouldn’t be raised, and no particular notice would be taken. That would seem to be the level of acceptance sought after, wouldn’t it?

Then why not bring your non-traditional family, not as a group, not advertising your difference, just as another American family enjoying the Easter event?

Certainly, America has not arrived at the ideal point, it’s likely it never will. But by storming Easter egg rolls, creating a spectacle, drawing attention to your differences, you’re not promoting acceptance.

America knows you’re here, we’re aware of you. The discussion that would be promoted probably wouldn't be helpful to your cause.

It’s likely you will foster resentment and move yourself further from your goals…

Easter egg rolls are not about gays, straights or in betweens. They’re about kids, eggs and having a good time.

Just a thought…


God Bless America

Teddy Exposed!

It took some heat from conservatives to get Teddy Kennedy to come clean…

When the tables were turned on the liberal hypocrite and the truth was revealed….the 52 year member of the Owl Club admits he shouldn’t be a member. The Owl Club discriminates against women, yet the self-righteous Teddy Kennedy has been a member for over half a century!

When asked if he should be a member of a club like that, Teddy said “I shouldn’t be and I’m going to get out of it as fast as I can.”

No doubt, Teddy had no intentions of quitting the club before he was shamed into it by conservative pressure.

Teddy, doing some grandstanding, railed on Supreme Court nominee Judge Alito for having ties to a group that discriminates against women. Of course, Teddy the hypocrite’s charges were unfounded and false…


Read the entire story Here

It was posted on the Boston Herald.Com website and written by Jules Crittenden. Thanks to Jules and the Boston Herald..

The shameless Al Gore is out raging and ranting hypocrisy too….You can read about it HERE The title of the article is, what else but; “White House: Al Gore is a Hypocrite”

Al is exposed on News Max.Com, thanks guys, we were all really surprised to find Al’s a hypocrite, yeah right…

God Bless America

That old lush Teddy Kennedy, what a hypocrite!


That old lush Teddy Kennedy, what a hypocrite!

It seems Teddy thinks that he can get away with anything.. He attempts to impugn Judge Samuel Alito’s character because Alito belonged to a group opposed to admitting more women and minorities to Princeton University. Now Teddy is reaching way back to Judge Alito’s college days..and Teddy doesn't have his facts straight to boot!

Teddy must think that his past is beyond scrutiny…. Problem is Teddy has a very troubled track record himself. Fact is, Teddy is an easy target.

There’s a very interesting article posted on NewsMax.Com that reveals why Teddy needs to zip his lip…better still Teddy needs to apologize to the good Judge Alito.

The title of the article is “Ted Kennedy's Club Discriminated”

Here’s an excerpt:

“Sen. Kennedy still belongs to a social club for Harvard students and alumni that was thrown off campus nearly 20 years ago after refusing to allow female members, an investigation by the Washington Times reveals.

According to the membership directory of the Owl Club, Kennedy updated his personal information as recently as September 7. Ironically, the Owl Club, long reviled at Harvard as "sexist,” was evicted from the campus in 1984 for violating federal anti-discrimination laws authored by Kennedy.”

Good job Teddy! You’re an embarrassment to the Senate. Your shameful behavior and grandstanding during the Alito hearings leaves you with no credibility..

A big thanks to the crew at News Max, great job!

It is clear Judge Alito is headed to the Supreme Court despite the attacks of the hypocrite clowns..


God Bless America

The Grilling of Judge Sam Alito

If anything at all confirms the fact that Judge Sam Alito is the right choice for the United States Supreme Court, it is this:

“ACLU Opposes Bush Nominee Judge Samuel A. Alito”

Despite the American Civil Liberties Union’s spinning of the truth, despite their smear campaign against Judge Alito, another nail is being driven into their coffin.

Not much more needs to be said to most main stream, thinking Americans. The word is getting out. If the ACLU supports it, it’s probably bad for Americans.

The radical liberal left is applying big pressure to their senatorial flunkies. As Teddy the lush, Chuckles Schumer, Pat Leahy and Company hammered away at Judge Alito ,they were out-smarted again. That’s not any great achievement though. The libs have only displayed their ignorance and blind partisanship to the world once again.

They may attempt the grandstand filibuster but it’s doubtful…

NewsMax.Com has an excellent article titled “Alito Appears Headed for Confirmation” that’s worth the time spent to read it.

You can read it HERE


The Age at TheAge.Com.Au tells the story of the Democrat’s attempt at torturing an American judge in an article titled: “Senate puts Bush nominee to the blowtorch”

It’s amazing, the liberals are being exposed for what they are all over the world.

Here’s a brief excerpt from that article:

“After the first day of the hearing, newspapers published charts showing that senators seemed to prefer the sound of their own voices to actually getting answers from the judge.
Only two senators allowed the judge to speak longer than their questions. The worst offender, Democrat Joe Biden, took more than 3000 words to ask five questions, while the judge used fewer than 1000 words to answer them.”

You can read the entire "The Age" article HERE


Indeed, it seems the Democrats sought TV exposure more than answers….


The Voice of America also posted an excellent article titled simply: “Alito Confirmation Hearings to Continue Friday” written by Deborah Tate.

You can read the Voice of America article HERE

If you’re interested in the American Civil Liberties take on Judge Alito, it can be read HERE

As was stated before “another nail is being driven into the ACLU’s coffin. The days of the activists judges appear to be numbered, that’s a wonderful thing for America, what a set-back for the radical liberal’s agenda..

God Bless America

Osama’s dead, one more time….



Perhaps Allah has finally had enough of the hoodlum and has punished Osama Bin Laden. The latest report has the king of the terrorists going out not as a hero, not as a martyr but as a guy with bad kidneys. Some hero! One would think that Osama, the great leader of jihad, knowing he was dying anyway, would go out in flames..

Not this coward, not this loser, he “fades to black” by way of kidney failure. Doubtful that he got his handful of raisins or virgins or whatever, if he’s has indeed departed this life.

The latest report of Osama’s demise comes from Michael Ledeen author of “The War Against the Terror Masters”. Ledeen is also resident scholar in the Freedom Chair at the American Enterprise Institute and a contributing editor of National Review Online..

Here are Michael Ledeen’s words;

“And, according to Iranians I trust, Osama bin Laden finally departed this world in mid-December. The al Qaeda leader died of kidney failure and was buried in Iran, where he had spent most of his time since the destruction of al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The Iranians who reported this note that this year's message in conjunction with the Muslim Haj came from his number two, Ayman al-Zawahiri, for the first time.”

Not much is being said in the main stream media about the event.

The article was picked up by one of Fundamentally Right’s favorite blogs “Regime Change Iran” The entire article can be read HERE at Regime Change Iran or HERE at National Review Online.

You make up your mind, is Osama dead or not?


Spend some time over at Regime Change Iran. It’s an honorable work that they are about. We all know the regime in Iran is long since overdue for a change.

God bless America

Brad
