The Barbie Doll Maven Goes G I Joe
March 30, 2011
When I was a little girl, I, like every other little girl in the civilized world...played dress-up with a Barbie doll (or a good facsimile). It helped us prime our fashion sense...
When I became an adult, it appeared that some men may have been playing with the same toys growing up. I'm not talking about budding designers, here...I'm referring to those in strategic positions in companies...smooth talkers and runway walkers.
BUT...when the man in charge is not merely handling a recording session or cosmetic color launch...and it affects our national security...it's time to pay serious attention...
Obama has been bent upon causing America to no longer be the leader of the Free World. His 'me too', follower stance has truly changed how the world views us. Our allies view us with suspicion...and our enemies view us as weenie warriors who will run like little girls if someone screams a word with the suffix 'phobic'.
When I first heard (and saw) Obama speak...he struck me as a pompous dandy and an artful politician, who knew how to tickle the ear of his audience to garner their favor. But his superficial attributes are more reminiscent of a man who grew up playing dress-up with a doll, than a Commander-in-Chief.
His sluggish reaction to Gaddafi's behavior, as well as in other events in the Middle East...has projected our nation as weak on the world stage...but more importantly, on the Arab Street. Because there's one thing Arabs respect: Military strength.
His move to send 2,200 hundred Marines off the coast of Libya was ONLY ordered AFTER the UN gave permission.
That speaks mega-weenie to the Arab Street.
Obama's tragic imitation of a GI Joe gets a 'No Sale' from lovers of liberty. Because true peace lovers know that with evil that is insatiable and ubiquitous...as Machiavelli once said: "It's better to be feared than loved in the world."

NY Honor Killing: Perp Was Victim?
March 25, 2011
One devilishly ingenious thing that Muslims did following the terrorist atrocity on 9/11, was to couch themselves as victims. They have been riding that magic prayer rug ever since. But the trial going on in NY takes the cake when it comes to being egregious...
It's the trial of an honor killing in Buffalo NY...though it's not being referred to as such...and it's taking place two years after the brutal murder. Muzzammil Hassan, who abused his wife Aasiya since they married. The abuse was documented with police reports, photos and letters compiled by her attorney 6 days before her murder. He ended his barbarian behavior toward his wife by decapitating her...and giving a full confession to police following the act.
Two years pass and the magic prayer rug enters and it appears that Hassan now claims to be the victim. According to the Buffalo News...Hassan says everyone ELSE is to blame: "The "white Nazi" guards he said had assaulted him in jail. The attorneys he has fired since he began preparing for trial. The judge he once called "evil" in court."
Oh that poor little butcher...everybody's always picking on him...
It never ceases to amaze me how criminal-types and America-loathers always seem to end up with liberal excuses rolling off their tongues. In a Libs world, you are forever the victim and it's everyone else's fault.
Since Libs are more concerned with the humane treatment of the perps, perhaps, in Hassan's case, we should only impose half of what he perpetrated upon his innocent wife...half a beheading, just so he can feel her pain.
I think that would be condign punishment.

Just War And The Jewish State: Their Home Is Their Castle
March 22, 2011
Believe it or not, in a Blue State like NY, we actually have an article in the Penal Law that allows us to employ self-defense. Article 35 of the Penal Law specifies when an individual is justified in using force to defend life or property. (Proof that there's hope for NY.)
Many States in the union have adopted an American doctrine known as, The Castle Doctrine...
The Castle Doctrine, or the Defense of Habitation Law is a derived from English Common Law. The law defines ones home, or in some cases any place that you legally occupy, as a place where you have the liberty to be free from trespass. It also gives you the right to defend your life, or the life of another who legally occupies the “castle” with deadly force if the situation warrants it. In a legal proceeding your actions can be defended as justifiable under the Castle Doctrine.
The Castle Doctrine is a microcosm of the Just War Doctrine, which states that a nation may justly go to war for some restricted reasons, which are basically those of self-defense, and the rescue of another nation from an aggressor.
Guess what? Israel has a right to defend itself...according to international law and the UN Charter (article 51). As stated by Alan Dershowitz, "...acts of war—known as Casus Belli—fully justify an Israeli armed response...Providing weapons to a declared enemy in the face of an embargo has historically been deemed an armed attack under the law of war, especially when those providing the weapons intend for them to be used against the enemy's civilians."
Iran has been providing weapons to Hamas, to attack Israeli civilians, for some time. The proof is unequivocal.
Therefore...Voila...there exists more than sufficient justification for Israel to severely damage, if not destroy, Iran's nuclear program.
International Law agrees. The UN Charter agrees. Sovereign, peace-loving nations agree. Allow Israel to protect and defend...to do otherwise would be the apex of artifice.

Islamberg: Coming To A Rural Area Near You
March 17, 2011
It's been said that NY has everything...from beaches to snowcapped mountains, from Haute couture to the best bargain basements, and the best collection of scrumptious fare, including some of the best bagels, cheesecake and pizza found anywhere on earth. You name it, we have it. But...unbeknownst to many in NY and in the rest of the country...we have something that warms the cockles of radical Muslims hearts...
...and it's coming to a rural area near you...if it's not already there...
The group, according to the South Asia Terrorism Portal, Jamaat ul-Fuqra (JF) or "community of the impoverished", is a terrorist outfit operating in Pakistan and North America. It was formed by a Pakistani cleric, Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, in New York in 1980, on his very first visit to the US. Gilani's stated intention in forming the outfit was to 'purify' Islam through violence. Gilani began preaching against Western culture at a mosque in Brooklyn, NY.
Facts about Al Fuqra:
Their focus is to counter what is perceived as excessive Western influence on Islam.
Their conclusion is that violence plays a significant role in its quest to purify Islam.
They regard the enemies of Islam to be all those who do not follow the tenets of Islam as laid out in the Quran, including those Muslims who they consider apostates, as well as non-Muslims.
Gilani published works in the Quranic Open University in the US, (which was seized in a 1991-investigation) that stated that their foremost duty was to wage violent Jihad against the ‘oppressors of Muslims’.
From 1980 to 1990, al Fuqra's communes (now numbering 35) across the US attracted many Muslim converts-including those recruited in our prison system.
At least 50 terrorist attacks on American soil were linked to Jamaat ul-Fuqra, ranging from bombings to murder to plots of blowing up American landmarks.
Seven of the 35 communes are in the states of Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The headquarters are in the NY Catskill Mountains in Hancock, NY, called: Islamberg.
Training compounds are in the following states: Hancock, NY; Marion, AL; Commerce & Macon, GA; Talihina, OK; York County, SC; Dover, TN; Red House, VA & Bethany, WV.
On September 28, 2001, ATF Special Agent Thomas P. Gallagher told a court: "Individuals from the organization are trained in Hancock, N.Y., and if they pass the training in Hancock, N.Y., are then sent to Pakistan for training in paramilitary and survivalist training by Mr. Gilani."
Now I'll bet you haven't heard about this in the mainstream media...huh?
Including this information, in developing our national security policy, should be a no-brainer, right? But, the fact that these camps exist reflects poorly upon our policy strategy. Which means...
...perhaps we're in BIG trouble...
So, whether you reside in NY, TX, SC or any part of this great nation...it's time to be awake, aware and vigilant. Our leaders, concerning Islam, are trusting our enemies...and since we are their employer...let that be reflected in their evaluation come 2012.
Shalom through strength...
Family Values From Hell
March 15, 2011
It happens every time. The moment news of another successful terror attack reaches the PA-controlled TV network...jubilation erupts from the people former President Bush insisted had the same values as we possess. But a brief look at a recent attack...and the Gaza reaction, tells a different story...
A paramedic described the scene: "The murder scene was shocking. Kids’ toys right next to pools of blood."
After 10pm Saturday night, a 'palestinian' terrorist infiltrated the West Bank settlement of Itamar, southeast of Nablus, and savagely stabbed 5 family members to death. Udi Fogel, 36, Ruth Fogel, 35, and their children Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and 3-month-old Hadas. He then fled and has not been located.
News of the vicious murders hit the airwaves and guess what happened?
Q. 'Palestinians' came in droves to try to help the remaining family members and community?
Q. 'Palestinians' volunteered to pitch-in and search for the terrorist?
Q. 'Palestinians' rejoiced in the streets and handed out candy, because one of their own slaughtered innocent Jews?
That's right...it's become a common practice following a terror attack in Israel (and also on 9-11), to celebrate the barbaric slaughter of Jews...including infants, with the distribution of sweets.
Aaahhh...family values...the same as ours?
From the womb...(in many cases) to the early tomb, children are indoctrinated with vile lies about Jews. A cherubic-faced little 3-yr-old says she doesn't like the Jews because they're "apes and pigs"...and "our god" said that about them "in the Quran."
This is what we teach our children?
A suicide-bomber's mother said of her son's homicide mission: "I was very happy when I heard that he [Mahmud] killed Jews in the attack. When a warrior of Jihad follows Allah's path to kill Jews, [it is the act of Jihad] that gives him strength. Even if he does not kill any Jews, it is an honorable act because he dies the death of a martyr."
A mother's love? Just like a mother in the West?
Although I had great respect for former President Bush, on the issue of Islam being a 'religion of peace'...possessing America values: He was dead wrong.
The act of murdering innocents...including defenseless infants/children, is the behavior of rabid dogs who have no regard for human life. Something that first emanates from the Muslim holy book...then carried into the schools, TV, celebrations, etc., covering every aspect of 'palestinian' life. The product of such dehumanization and hatred of a people group can only result in genocide...something the two segments of the PA (Hamas & Fatah) has vowed to do innumerable times.
Oh, I neglected to mention...the part of the PA that our government considers peaceful and moderate: Fatah? Well, they took credit for the terror slaughter of the Fogel family.
Family values? Yes...straight from the pit of hell.

Clueless NY Congressman Spells Peril For The People
March 10, 2011
This September 11th will be the 10 year anniversary of the worst terror attacks perpetrated upon America. A plethora of information has been revealed since then, from myriad reliable sources...which should have resulted in a more educated public. But, if the response of a NY Congressman is any clue to the public's knowledge...we are in a perilous place, one decade later...
In an interview with the The Adirondack Daily Enterprise, NY Rep. Bill Owens (D-NY) of the 23rd district, said the following concerning the hearings being held by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) titled, "The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community — and that Community’s Response.": "I would rather see those hearings focus on extremism in America without focusing on an individual religious or ethnic group."
Now as a former member of the US Air Force, I would expect a more well-informed response. I fear Owens move from an Independent to a Democrat has hindered his ability to reason soundly. Perhaps, Rep. Owens is unaware of the following:
Since 9-11-01, almost 17,000 deadly terror attacks have been carried out by Islamic terrorists, globally.
Every terror attack had one unequivocal element in common: All the participants were of the Muslim faith.
The Buffalo Five al-Qaeda cell members: Sahim Alwan, Yahya Goba, Shafal Mosed, Yasein Taher and Faysal Galab, were ALL Muslim.
The Fort Hood terrorist was a Muslim.
The Buffalo, NY man who beheaded his wife for bringing domestic violence charges against him, was a Muslim.
The man who attempted to blow up Times Square, was a Muslim.
In the past 35 years, 3,308 citizens were killed by Muslims in America in 65 separate terror attacks.
I guess Rep. Owens missed those 'aberrations'...
Rep. King has now had to hire extra security due to death threats he has been receiving domestically and overseas. Could Rep. Owens' comments have contributed to the hostile response? Difficult to say...but one thing is for sure...some of his constituents disagree with his comments...
One of them happens to be a former US Senate candidate, Karen Bisso, who on Teamwatch.us, responded to the Congressman as follows:
"What extremist group in America would Representative Owens want the commission to look at? After following the news for quite some time now, I scratch my head, deliberating over what group of people I would commission an investigation into which would fall under the category of “American Extremism?” After all, the hearings are set to examine radical Islam and any attempt to sway from that objective is to revise our history as of late and deflect from the issues at hand. Political correctness breeds complacency and will eventually lead to nothingness….a concept I don’t believe we have the luxury of living with as it will undoubtedly lead to us living without……. without security, without the principles and foundations this nation fought to secure (Judeo-Christian beliefs) and without trust; trust in a government which will secure our safety in spite of porous borders and religious zealots. Please do explain Congressman Owens which groups you would ask the commission to focus on?"
Islam: Don't Hate The Playa, Hate The Game
March 8, 2011
That great 'philosopher' ICE-T once said, "Don't hate the playa, hate the game." For those of us who are not hip to the jive...a translation from Urban Dictionary:
Do not fault the successful participant in a flawed system; try instead to discern and rebuke that aspect of its organization which allows or encourages the behavior that has provoked your displeasure.
That's precisely the message from all conservatives concerning Islam: We do NOT hate Muslims...we hate the ideology of Islam!
It is an ideology of perverse and hateful dictates. Islam:
Demeans women and treats them as chattel.
Treats children as property to be used and abused.
Calls for the execution of homosexuals.
Murders unbelievers who refuse to convert or be enslaved.
Teaches the supremacy of Islam over all other religions.
Calls for the murder of all Muslims who leave Islam.
Promotes and participates in anti-Semitism.
And this is the tip of the minaret...
The dogma is responsible for fueling: Misogynists, pedophiles, anti-Semites and terrorists. (Muslims can never be accused of throwing a Love-In.)
The game is pernicious. It's a game of hate and blood-lusting. It destroys everything in its path to give the playa, blinded by his greed, a counterfeit reward.
The game was carefully crafted by a villainous man, to feed his odious passions. And anyone who adheres to his teachings, will simply disseminate his hate.
Since 9-11, Allah's allies have carried out almost 17,000 deadly terror attacks on innocent people...and that is only a fraction of their attempts. But they weren't born that way...they were nurtured in vile verses from childhood. And hate produces hate, which culminates in death.
Is there hope for these people? You bet...because there are many who have left Islam. I know some personally. The numbers are a secret, though, since few want a fatwa on their head...or a sword at their throat.
So, here it is: It ain't the people...it's the poison. It's ain't the playa, it's the game.
The 'playa' is the Muslim. The 'game' is Islam. Guess which one has to go?
Shalom through strength...
Fashion's Hideous Heart
March 3, 2011
Women have been enamored with vogue since the Garden...we love to enhance our G-d-given attributes. And the fashion world has been playing to that desire for ages. But a recent incident in Paris has me wondering what type of beauty can emanate from the mind of a hideous heart...
For those of you who are unaware of the incident...John Galliano, now former head designer at Christian Dior, spewed a rant of Jew-hatred that made Mel Gibson look like a lover of Israel. At a Paris bar, in an inebriated state he said the following (which is also on video):
(At the Paris cafe La Perle, he assumed the people were Jewish):"I love Hitler...People like you would be dead today. Your mothers, your forefathers would be f**ing gassed and f**ing dead."
For those ready to give him a defense of drunkenness...no sale. Inebriation is most often truth serum. These thoughts were not off the top of his head, but deep within his heart. Ideas that have been fed, nourished and mused over a lifetime. The alcohol simply pulls down the facade one has been crouching behind.
Gary L. Malone, MD, an addiction psychiatrist and the medical director and chief of psychiatry at Baylor All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas, agrees with me...
"You can't pour vodka on a turnip and have it say anti-Semitic remarks...When anyone drinks there is a neurological and psychological regression, and the higher the blood alcohol level, the more primitive and hostile the response that comes out...Alcohol can't make you think or feel things."
Indeed...just as Gibson's comments were not alcohol-driven but rather driven by hate...so too are Galliano's vicious barbs.
And Christian Dior, having taken too long to finally fire the monster...has left a bad taste in my mouth for their company. Galliano's comments bubbled too easily to his pie-hole to be a secret. I'm sure they must have been aware of his hateful inclinations prior to this crime.
Something further to ponder...The woman off camera asked Galliano if he had a problem, he responded, "With you, you're ugly." She then asked, "you don't like peace, you don't want peace in the world?"
His response, "Not with people who are ugly, like you."
Now, can any real beauty come out of a hideous heart? Christian Dior...we now know the answer.
As a woman from a proud Jewish heritage, who has zero tolerance for anti-Semitism...it's time to rethink my fashion choices. And Dior will no longer be one of them.
Shalom through strength...
ABA/NYCBAR: Having Separation Anxiety?
March 2, 2011
We've all heard the mendacity ad nauseam...mention the Ten Commandments, the Judeo-Christian Bible or prayer on public property...the deafening shrieks of: SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE (NOT in the constitution, but rather in a letter from Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Assoc. to allay their concerns over the First Amendment).
Then comes Oklahoma SQ 755, banning Sharia Law in the state. It was passed by the voters and then something stupefying occurred...the American Bar Association and the NYCBAR (New York City Bar Association) had an epiphany...
They became warriors for Allah!!!
That's right...the first criticism from the NYCBAR came in late December of last year. In their report, THE UNCONSTITUTIONALITY OF OKLAHOMA REFERENDUM 755, the NYCBAR stated: That the amendment “will make conducting business and personal affairs more difficult not only for people who may choose to observe rules or principles based upon Sharia, but for all who have personal or business relationships with those people, including the more than 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide. As drafted, it will also needlessly reject the use of the law of other states by Oklahoma courts even in cases with no relation to Sharia law. The Question’s prohibition against consideration of ‘international law’ will confuse and complicate legal matters in Oklahoma for all those whose personal and business affairs relate to international affairs or matters in other countries. And in our globally-connected world, many of us have foreign and international involvements we are unaware of, including the entity that owns our own business or holds our mortgage. No state should so isolate its entire population, and denigrate a segment of its population that is entitled to the full protection of U.S. and State law.”
My, my...what a religious awakening! And for such a strict and draconian ideology. But wait... it doesn't end there...
Less than a week ago, the American Bar Association (ABA) decided to champion the fight for Sharia law. The ABA’s Executive Counsel “has organized a Task Force to review the legislation of 14 states — Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming — in which anti-Sharia legislation has been introduced.”
Wait...do I hear an Allah Akbar from the halls of justice?
Now realize that Sharia Law calls for the imposition of theocracy over democracy, abuse of human rights, institutionalized discrimination, denial of human dignity and individual autonomy, and severity of its punishments. Including stoning for women accused of adultery, hanging of those in the homosexual lifestyle, polygamy, maiming those caught stealing, etc.
ALL based on religion and the Quran...Islam's holy book.
Is ABA/NYCBAR conflicted over the history of their sacred mantra of 'separation of church and state'?
Are they experiencing 'Separation anxiety'??
So, then I guess their bold move, in favor of religion, means they will be revisiting the issue of allowing prayer in the schools and the displaying of the Ten Commandments in public venues, right?
Because to do otherwise would be inequity and the pinnacle of hypocrisy. And they could NEVER be accused of that, could they...?
Shalom through strength...
