>America’s Policy Toward Russia Has Been Exceedingly Foolish

>

The following from Hillsdale College argues for greater strategic nuclear muscle than American currently has. While the publishers of this blog agree that we need greater, not less, nuclear deterrents to China’s and Russia’s rapid buildup of arms, they still strongly maintain that the answer for America right now is less military presence abroad, not more. BRING OUR BOYS HOME IS THE SLOGAN, THE CHANT, THE OVERRIDING GOAL OF THIS BLOG. It was two months ago when it was started and it remains valid today.

It is especially essential now in order to divert miltary spending for the defense of Afghanistan and Iraq — and Barak Obama’s newest war, Libya — to help reduce the deficit that is causing America to pay upwards of $400 billion yearly on Chinese interest alone. That is unsustainable; and it gets larger and larger each year. Soon, if we don’t get serious in Washington, we will be paying more for interest than all of the revenues collected in taxes, and we can’t let that happen. 

“The President has a completely different view of the federal government than I do. Having said that, for the good of the country it’s our obligation to sit down and try to find a way to work together to advance the interest of our country.”

It is because Obama and all Democrats are the party of big government. While Republicans are the party of small government, private enterprise, and lower taxes.

We on the right demand spending cuts. Those on the left demand more spending, but they don’t make any sense. How can you continue to outspend your income? Obviously, few if any of the Democrats ever had to meet a payroll. Certainly they don’t run their personal finances in this rag-tattered way, do they? Why did they go to college–to learn to spend someone else’s money or to learn to live modestly using their own resources?

The following is part of a release entitled “It’s Never Just the Economy, Stupid” printed here in part by permission from Hillsdale College. It was adapted from a talk given by Brian T. Kennedy, president of Hillsdale and publisher of Claremont Review. He has written on national security affairs in the National Review, The Wall Street Journal, Investor’s Business Daily and other national newspapers. He sits on the Independent Working Group on Missile Defense and is co-author to the recent book Shariah: The Threat to America.

Khruschev and Kennedy Arm Wrestle Over Cuban Missile Crisis
Perhaps it is not surprising [then] that our policy toward Russia has been extremely foolish.
For the past two decades we have paid the Russians to dismantle nuclear warheads they would have dismantled anyway, while they have used these resources to modernize their ballistic missiles. On our part, we have not even tested a nuclear warhead since 1992—which is to say we are not certain they work anymore. Nor have we maintained any tactical nuclear weapons. Nor have we built the missile defense system suggested by President Reagan.
Just last month, with bi-partisan backing from members of the foreign policy establishment, the Senate ratified the New Start Treaty, that will further reduce our nuclear arsenal, and will almost certainly cause further delays in building nuclear defenses—and this with a nation which engages in massive deception against us, supports our enemies, and builds ever more advanced nuclear weapons.
At the heart of America’s strategic defense policy today is the idea of launching  a retaliatory nuclear strike against whatever nuclear power attacks us. But absent reliable confidence in the lethality of forces, such a deterrent is meaningless. In this light, deliberating about the need for a robust modernization program, rather than arms reductions, through New Start would have been a better way for Congress to spend the days leading up to Christmas—which is to say it would have been supportive of our strategic defense policy, rather than undercutting it
Pictures, SCAPE TV
But what about the strategic policy? Some New Start supporters argued that reducing rather than modernizing our nuclear arsenal places us on moral high ground in our dealings with other nations. But can any government claim to occupy moral high ground when it willingly, knowingly, purposefully keeps its people nakedly vulnerable to nuclear missiles?
The Russians understand well the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the American defense establishment, and have carefully orchestrated things for two decades so that we remain preoccupied with the threats of North Korea and now Iranian ballistic missiles. We spend our resources developing modest defense systems, albeit inadequately with these so-called rogue states, and meanwhile forego addressing the real threat from Russia and China, both of which are modernizing their forces. Who is to say that there will never be a time when the destruction or nuclear blackmail of the U.S. will not be in the interest of Russia and China.  Do we imagine that respect of human life or human rights will stop these brutal tyrannies from acting on such a determination?
If I sound pessimistic, I don’t mean to. Whatever kind of self-deception has gripped the architects of our current defense policies, the American people have proved capable of forcing a change in direction when they learn the facts. Americans do not wish to be subjected to Sharia law, owe large sums of money to the Chinese, or be kept vulnerable to nuclear missiles. Having responded resoundingly to the economic and Constitutional  crisis represented by Obamacare, it is now time to remind our representatives of the Constitutional requirement to provide for the common defense—in the true sense of the word.

My thoughts first.  The above mentioned article is below the red.
 
Back in 1957, Naomi W. Randall wrote one of my favorite songs entitled, “I Am A Child Of God”.  It goes on to say:
 
And He has sent me here,
Has given me an earthly home,
With parents kind and dear.
 
The last line of the chorus originally read:
 
Teach me all that I must know
To live with Him someday.
 
Our church leaders loved the song but asked if the author would change the word ‘know’ to ‘do’.  It now reads:
 
Teach me all that I must do
To live with Him someday.
 
We can read scriptures all day and/or study intently the forces that are destroying this nation but  knowledge without action will not save this nation or ourselves.  We will all have to stand before the Lord some day and give an accounting of our actions or inactions.  I know he is going to ask me what I did while here to preserve the constitution that He inspired our founders to write. 
 
So this is what I am doing.  I have 6 groups of 30 each that I send Emails to.  I could probably send a dozen a day to each of you but I try to pick and choose.  There are so many sites out there that will send you the latest info on the situations in this country as well as the world.  They are free and just require you to sign up for their Emails.  Then there is talk radio and Fox TV.  We automatically record Glenn Beck every night to play back at a more convenient hour.  He is on at 5PM and repeated at 2AM ET.  He has done a fabulous job of educating the public about the founders of this nation and also naming those who are trying to destroy us.  He, his staff and family as well as others who are naming names, need our daily prayers.  If anyone is interested, I will send you a list of the sites I subscribe to.  Also, if you do not have time for talk radio, the hosts all have web sites you can click on and be brought up to date.
 
Once you have become knowledgeable, you need to write to your legislators, both national and state.  Go to http://www.congress.org/, type in your zip code and you have all the addresses you need.  There are so many issues that are important and they need to hear your voices.  It may seem discouraging but we are having an effect.  Those who are up for election are beginning to realize the overwhelming majority are NOT in favor of the course the present administration is taking.  PLEASE take the time to Email, fax, write or call them.
 
Some of the issues:
 
Yes Border Fence.  Need to tell our state legislators as well as feds that we support Arizona governor and if necessary would support our state doing the same if it should become necessary. 
 
No Amnesty.  The president wants amnesty because he is losing votes and perhaps congress this coming November.  If the illegals are given citizenship (amnesty gives them full rights to vote) he hopes they will all vote his way.  Instead the illegals should be rounded up, given a green card which will allow them to work and pay taxes on what they earn, thereby relieving the burden from the rest of us for their health care, teachers, schools etc.  If not able to find work within a certain time frame, they will have to leave.  Employers hiring illegals would be heavily fined.  This will open up many jobs for our unemployed citizens.  No other country allows people to come in and stay unless they show meaningful ways to support themselves.
 
NO Government Run Health Care.  Many states are drafting ‘opt out’ legislation.  Our legislators need to know you support their actions.  New figures are continually coming forth stating everything will cost much more than earlier stated.  There will be rationing and people will no longer be in control of their health.  We and our children will be burdened with taxes and nothing to show for it.
 
NO Cap and Trade.  We knew from the beginning it was a hoax when Al Gorestationed his testing equipment adjacent to paved parking lots etc. to show ‘global warming‘  Then the Emails of the scientists surfaced further substantiating there had been deceit all along.  Mr. Gore as well as GE and others have set up companies that will make them very rich if this were to pass.  Our president has told us our electric bills will necessarily double if this passes.  Gas has been estimated to be at least $7 a gallon. WRITE CONGRESS!
 
NO Fairness Act.  If this passes union workers, as well as non union workers would no longer be able to vote in secret.  They want some bully to be standing over you to see that you vote ‘their way’.  Should be called the unfairness act.  Our president has been a union organizer for years.  Once he has everyone organized they will be his bully army. 
 
Their are dozens of other issues.  The president has been signing one executive order after another to bypass congress and our scrutiny. And did you know he recently ‘loaned’ Venezuela 2 billion dollars for offshore oil exploration?  George Sorros owns a huge amount of stock in that company.  He is also the big financial supporter behind Obama’s programs. Much of our oil and gas rich land in this country has recently been declared federal land and cannot be drilled or mined.  And of course off shore drilling would pollute the world atmosphere.  Funny!  Apparently that is OK in Venezuela.
 
The things our kids are being taught in school is another example of the control such unions have.  No wonder more people are home schooling.  But if our government has it’s way, that will soon be outlawed.  It is in some states.
 
One last thing.  It was announce that Hillary, our Secretary of state, has told the UN we will sign a treaty with them to ban small arms.  Translated that means gun control.  Any treaty we signed and is ratified by congress will supercede our constitution.  Think about that one!
 
Please, people.  We don’t have to carry a gun and go to the front lines to defend this country so we should be willing to take a few moments to become informed and write our congressman.  Sign up for some of these sites.  They make it really easy by writing a fax or email for you which, if you agree, you can send as is or alter to suit your thoughts. 
 
    
 
The following was just sent to me by a dear friend.  I have read similar articles before.  Have also read how the Islams are very well organized.  When their numbers reach a certain percentage in a given area, they then demand Sharia Law.  This has been done in EnglandFrance and the Scandinavian countries.  As you will see from the article below, it has happened in certain areas in this country already.  The goal is to convert everyone by force or eliminate them. 
 
Please help save this nation.  Mom/Gram/Joan
The Islamic world is happening whether you like it or not.  !!!!!

Muslim Women;

This was written by a woman born in Egypt as a Muslim.

This is not hearsay, and it will scare the life out of you. 
Make sure you read the paragraph (in red) towards the end. 

Joys of Muslim Women
by Nonie Darwish
 

In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. Consummating the marriage by 9.
The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy. 

Even though a woman is abused she can not obtain a divorce.
To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses.
Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry.  The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives ‘at will’ and he does not have to say why he has beaten her.

The husband is permitted to have (4 wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.

The Shariah Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of the woman.

In the West World ( America ) Muslim men are starting to demand Shariah Law so the wife can not obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her.  It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to theShariah law.

By passing this on, enlightened American women may avoid becoming a slave under Shariah Law.
Ripping the West in Two.
Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Shariah law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two.

She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law.

Darwish was born in Cairo and spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza  before immigrating to America in 1978, when she was eight years old. Her father died while leading covert attacks on  Israel .  He was a high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza .

When he died, he was considered a “shahid,” a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated position in Muslim society.

But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her own Muslim cultureand upbringing.. She converted to Christianity after hearing a Christian preacher on television.
In her latest book, Darwish warns about creeping sharia law – what it is, what it means, and how it is manifested in Islamic countries.

For the West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose sharia on the world. If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed.Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual.  Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed in this world.
Peace and prosperity for one’s children is not as important as assuring that Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world.

While Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of ethics – one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh century, Sharia encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others.

While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a personal understanding of and relationship with God, Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted as criticism.
It’s hard to imagine, that in this day and age, Islamic scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed. Sadly, while talk of an Islamic reformationis common and even assumed by many in the West, such murmurings in the Middle East are silenced through intimidation.

While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over time, Darwish explains how petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere.

(In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the  U.S.   to elect the President by themselves! Rest assured they will do so… You can look at how they have taken over several towns in the USA .. Dearborn Mich. is one… and there are others…)

I think everyone in the U.S. should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!

It is too bad that so many are disillusioned with life and Christianity to accept Muslims as peaceful.. some may be but they have an army that is willing to shed blood in the name of Islam.. the peaceful support the warriors with their finances and own kind of patriotism to their religion. While America is getting rid of Christianity from all public sites and erasing God from the lives of children the Muslims are planning a great jihad on America .

This is your chance to make a difference…! Pass it on to your email list or at least those you think will listen..

>Even Moderate Muslims Want To Replace The Constitution With Islamic Sharia Law

>Are We Being Duped By The Muslims?

America has been compromised by radical Muslims—many of them trained, supported and inserted into their positions by the so-called “moderate “ Muslim establishment in America.

This is the alarming thesis of a book by Paul Sperry, Infiltration. It’s frightening, not because it’s something that “could happen,” not because these people are crossing our borders and moving into mainstream America, but because they are already here.

Sperry is a Washington-based investigative reporter and the book is called Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington. Sperry wrote it following exhaustive interviews with FBI agents, Customs officers, and military intelligence officials.

Muslims masquerading as “moderates” are infiltrating our government, our military, our prisons, our schools — and even the Department of Homeland Security. Cleverly exploiting “diversity,” “religious freedom,” and tax-exemption laws, these subversives have gained firm footholds in key American institutions, including public schools and universities, the federal and state prison system, law enforcement, the military, nuclear weapons laboratories, the Department of Homeland Security — even the White House.

The ultimate goal of these subversives, according to Sperry — quoting verbatim from some of the most respected and “mainstream” Muslim leaders in America — is to replace the U.S. Constitution with Sharia (Islamic) law and turn America into an Islamic state. And, as Sperry details point-by-point, they have been aided and abetted in their sinister aims by tireless champions of spiritual and cultural relativism in the media and academia, who have mitigated the threat in the public’s mind by “mainstreaming” Islam.

Mormon revelation tells of a dark time in America when the U.S. Constitution will hang by thread and it will take the combined efforts of many to save it. Someone of Mormon persuasion may be called upon to lead patriots everywhere in restoring Constitutional Law in America.

Who that person may be and from which states the saviors of the Constitution will come from no one knows, except that the authority of God in some way will be highly involved. That doesn’t mean that the division of church and state will be breached, but merely that people who believe in the Constitution as it stands most likely will be Christians and, more particularly, Mormons. They will have to stand up and be counted upon to help prevent that catastrophe.

We encourage similar or opposite views by bloggers, presumably the latter will be Muslims.
