Remember The Holocaust?

Posted by ginnypub on May 21, 2009

I received this email from a Texas cousin. Wonder if any of these images will pass through Barry Soetoro’s mind when he sits down for chat with the leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran?

DID THE HOLOCAUST HAPPEN?

Of course it did. And it’s happening now in places like Zimbabwe , Sudan , North Korea , and terrorists in Pakistan want it to happen here in the USA .

 Never forget what one madman can do when given absolute power….

It ‘s a matter of history that when Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect: ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the track of history some b*stard will get up and say that this never happened’

These photos were taken in  Germany  by James Emison Chanslor, an Army Master Sergeant who served in World War II from 1942 until 1945.

‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing’ 
Edmund Burke 

This week, the  UK  removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offended’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. 

This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.

 It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in  Europe  ended. 

This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the 
six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russian peoples looking the other way!
Now, more than ever, with  Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

I don’t think the world has forgotten. It just stopped caring. I wonder if it ever cared? Maybe it is like more recent history. Some folks don’t think 9/11/01 was such a big deal.

September 10, 2001

Posted by ginnypub on March 24, 2009

On November 20, 2008, 52.9% of the American electorate voted like it was September 10, 2001.

Here’s a reminder of why that was a mistake.

Happy Norouz!

Posted by ginnypub on March 20, 2009

It’s that time of year again!

The U.S. Congress is considering a first-of-its kind resolution that congratulates Iranians and Iranian-Americans on the Norouz holiday.

Representative Mike Honda (Democrat-California), who represents voters in a northern California district, authored the resolution, which reads: “[To recognize] the cultural and historical significance of Norouz, expressing appreciation to Iranian Americans for their contributions to society, and wishing Iranian Americans and the people of Iran a prosperous new year.”

Good News Here from the National Iranian American Council (An Iranian American Voice in Washington, D.C.)!

Washington DC – Transcripts of National Iranian American Council and the New America Foundation’s conference on US-Iran relations on February 14, 2007 on Capitol Hill are now available online. The conference, titled “US-Iran relations: collision, stand-off, or convergence?” featured numerous high-power speakers, including Professor Francis Fukuyama, Congresswoman Jane Harman, Colonel Larry Wilkerson, Colin Powell’s Chief of Staff, Flynt Leverett of the New America Foundation, Bruno Pellaud, former deputy chief of safe guards at the IAEA, Daniel Levy, former advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, and Trita Parsi, President of NIAC. The conference tackled several aspects of the ongoing US-Iran debate, including the imperative of reducing US-Iran tensions in order to aid Iran’s internal pro-democracy forces, the superiority of inspections versus suspension as a non-proliferation tool, and previously undisclosed details about the May 2003 Iranian negotiation offer to the US.

 

The conference, part of NIAC’s US-Iran Policy Program, was sponsored by the Colombe Foundation, Kenbe Foundation, Open Society Institute, Ploughshares Fund, and Pluralism Fund. Through the US-Iran Policy Program, NIAC will hold two such conferences on Capitol Hill per year, in addition to several Congressional Breakfasts and Staff briefings.

Cute Joke

Posted by ginnypub on March 18, 2009

From my special friend Ayn, who sends me a smile every morning in my email box and who brings a smile to everyone she meets.

There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black:

1. He called everyone brother

2. He liked Gospel

3. He didn’t get a fair trial

 

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:

1. He went into His Father’s business

2. He lived at home until he was 33

3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his Mother was sure He was God

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian:

1. He talked with His hands

2. He had wine with His meals

3. He used olive oil

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian:

1. He never cut His hair

2. He walked around barefoot all the time

3. He started a new religion

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was an American Indian:

1. He was at peace with nature

2. He ate a lot of fish

3. He talked about the Great Spirit

 

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish:

1. He never got married.

2. He was always telling stories.

3. He loved green pastures.

 

But the most compelling evidence of all – 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman:

1. He fed a crowd at a moment’s notice when there was virtually no food

2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn’t get it

3. And even when He was dead, He had to get up because there was still work to do

AMEN!!

Ole Juan Cole The Lying Ole Troll

Posted by ginnypub on March 6, 2009

Juan Cole is a professor of Middle East and South Asian history at the University of Michigan. He’s also a blogger. Prof. Cole is a very important person. If you don’t believe me, just ask him.

Not everyone, however, is as enamored with Prof. Cole as he is with himself. Christopher Hitchens describes him as “a minor nuisance on the fringes of the academic Muslim apologist community. At one point, there was a danger that he would become a go-to person for quotes in New York Times articles (a sort of Shiite fellow-traveling version of Norman Ornstein, if such an alarming phenomenon can be imagined), but this crisis appears to have passed….who affects such expertise in Persian, cannot decipher the plain meaning of a celebrated statement and is, furthermore, in need of a remedial course in English”.

Yale University shared the same opinion, when in 2006, it denied him a faculty position, based on an assessment of Cole’s scholarly work. Very Important Person Cole blamed his rejection at an Ivy League university on “a concerted press campaign by neoconservatives…(which) was inappropriate and a threat to academic integrity”.

The main problem, among many, with Prof. Cole is that he lies. He gets called out for it. He retro-edits his lies and denounces the denouncer.  He’s like a kid with a sore tooth who can’t keep his tongue away from it.

Some “for instances”:

juancolecoffinlie

This policy was implemented in 1991 under Secretary of Defense, Richard Cheney and Pres. George H. W. Bush.

I have learned from Martin Kramer to capture a screenshot of Prof. Cole’s writings if I want to reference them in the future because of his retro-editing and deleting penchants.

In Jan 2009, Cole posted this:

coleliefromkramer

In response, Martin Kramer posted this: Actually, Atta’s will was dated April 11, 1996—one week before the Qana tragedy, on April 18. We don’t know for certain why he made it, but it cannot be because he witnessed any footage from Qana, which was still in the future. And Cole apparently never read the will. It contains no pledge to die while avenging anyone. The will deals with disposition of Atta’s body and possessions in the event of his death. It’s not a “martyrdom will,” but a standardized one, provided by Atta’s Hamburg mosque. (You can read the full text here.)
Update: In the wake of this post, Cole has partly retro-edited his own post (without indicating so).

Today IraqPundit blogged about Prof. Cole’s latest lying-fest.

Wonder how long it will be before he retro-edits?

I’ve got the screen caps, in case you need them, IraqPundit.

Megalomaniac And The Heroes

Posted by ginnypub on March 2, 2009

Megalomaniac-in-Chief, Barry Soetoro, delivered “his” plan for Iraq withdrawal to the Warrior Heroes stationed at Camp LeJeune, NC last week. In actuality, “Barry’s Plan” has already been crafted. It’s called SOFA. The Iraqi and Bush administrations crafted it and Barry didn’t have a damned thing to do with it.

“As a candidate for president, I made clear my support for a timeline of 16 months to carry out this drawdown, while pledging to consult closely with our military commanders upon taking office to ensure that we preserve the gains we’ve made and protect our troops,” Obama said. “Those consultations are now complete, and I have chosen a timeline that will remove our combat brigades over the next 18 months. “Let me say this as plainly as I can: By Aug. 31, 2010, our combat mission in Iraq will end.”

 

troopshatebarry

It looks like some in the audience remembered that the only reason he traveled to Iraq was to demand Iraqi leaders delay a SOFA agreement until after Pres. Bush was out of office.

traitorandpatriot

Maybe some in the audience are questioning the judgement of a Commander in Chief candidate who voted against funding troops on the battlefield because the U.S. did not surrender first.

Maybe some are remembering that Barry Soetoro’s timeline for Iraq withdrawal changed with each public opinion poll.

Maybe some are remembering that Barry’s nominee for U.S. Solicitor General fights to keep the ROTC off college campuses, but is happy to give a scholarship to anti-American Pakistani student Samad Khurram.

elenakaganhatesmilitaryantiamericansamadkhurram

All of them were trying to swallow the bile that wanted to projectile-vomit out of their collective mouths onto the face of the lying rat bastard standing before them who had the unmitigated audacity to claim the Petraeus/Crocker/Bush Strategy was HIS idea.

FYI, Barry…It’s called the Anaconda Strategy.

AND YOU DIDN’T HAVE A DAMNED THING TO DO WITH IT.

Hollyweird Codel

Posted by ginnypub on February 28, 2009

By now, everyone has probably read about Hollyweird’s latest stunt. Some are in IRAN on a completely apolitical, “cultural exchange”.

The absolute BEST take on it, IMO, comes from Pat Dollard.

Enjoy.

Bill Moyers-Homo Hunter

Posted by ginnypub on February 23, 2009

From the Wall Street Journal:

Under the Freedom of Information Act, the Washington Post has obtained a few of the former FBI director’s secret files. According to a Thursday front-page story, Hoover was “consumed” with exposing a (nonexistent) relationship between a gay photographer and Jack Valenti, the late film industry lobbyist who was then an aide to Lyndon Johnson. Hoover’s M.O. was to amass incriminating personal information as political blackmail.

But as the Post reports in passing, the dossier also reveals that Mr. Moyers — then a special assistant to LBJ — requested in 1964 that Hoover’s G-men “investigate two other administration figures who were ‘suspected as having homosexual tendencies.'”

Amid “bits of dirt on figures such as Martin Luther King,” Judge Silberman found a 1964 memo from Mr. Moyers directing Hoover’s agents to investigate Barry Goldwater’s campaign staff for evidence of homosexual activity. A few weeks before, an LBJ aide named Walter Jenkins had been arrested in a men’s bathroom, and Mr. Silberman wrote that Mr. Moyers and his boss evidently wanted leverage in the event Goldwater tried to use the liaison against them. (He didn’t, as it happened.)

When that episode became public after Mr. Silberman testified, an irate Mr. Moyers called him and, with typical delicacy, accused him of falling for forged CIA memos. Mr. Silberman offered to study the matter and, should Mr. Moyers’s allegations pan out, he would publicly exonerate him. “There was a pause on the line and then he said, ‘I was very young. How will I explain this to my children?’ And then he rang off.”

Bill Moyers is disputably the king of unsubstantiated allegations against the Bush Administration. The only thing he despises as much as Karl Rove is a Christian house of worship. How his ass must be chafing now that the FOIA has exposed him as a little dirt-digging homophobic cretin; especially in light of the fact that no evidence has ever surfaced of Rove doing anything Moyers ever accused him of.

This video of a former Senior Presidential Adviser sliming another is especially SWEET.

YEAH, BIBI!! (Updated)

Posted by ginnypub on February 20, 2009

**Bumped up for update** (Below the snip)

The Likud Party is BAAACK and strong! Tuesday’s primaries in Israel bring in Moshe Feiglin, Benny Begin, and Moshe Ayalon, among others. Of course the watered-down to milquetoast, Kadima Party is having a hissy fit. Prime Minister Ehud (maybe if we give islamo-fascists the rest of Israel’s land, they’ll stop killing our children) Olmert said,  “If Bibi, Begin, Ya’alon and Feiglin come to power, it will cause significant diplomatic damage to Israel.” Uh-huh, that’s the POINT, Ehud, or as I like to call you, the head of the John McCain wing of the Kadima/Likuds. You keep giving terrorists land and getting dead Israeli children in return. It’s WAY past time for “significant diplomatic damage”!

(snip)

 

UPDATE:

From the Jerusalum Post:

After the failure of his last-ditch effort to muster Kadima leader Tzipi Livni’s support for a unity government on Friday, President Shimon Peres formally entrusted Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu with the task of building a coalition.

Earlier, after emerging from a meeting with Peres, Livni announced that she had no intention of joining a broad coalition under Netanyahu, despite the Likud chairman’s assertion that he was willing to “go to great lengths” in order to induce Kadima to join his government.

“It appears that the coalition which has been formed in recent days lacks diplomatic vision,” Livni said after the meeting. The Kadima leader rejected the president’s plea that she reconsider joining a coalition comprised of the three largest parties – Kadima, Likud and Israeli Beiteinu – and asserted that a “broad coalition is worthless if it is not governed by values.”

Peres realizes the need for strength at this time in history. Since Barry Soetoro and his Brown Shirts have decided to “stand with” the enemies of Israel and the U.S., the “the political winds” have shifted “in an ugly direction“.

Shabtai Shavit, former chief of the Mossad intelligence agency, warned just 2 days ago: “I don’t believe there is a political solution which can be achieved through negotiations with Iran. My concern is that until Obama finishes his learning curve of the subject, the Iranians are going to have maybe the first or even more nuclear bombs.”

NYT, one day ago:

In their first appraisal of Iran’s nuclear program since President Obama took office, atomic inspectors have found that Iran recently understated by a third how much uranium it has enriched, United Nations officials said Thursday.

The officials also declared for the first time that the amount of uranium that Tehran had now amassed — more than a ton — was sufficient, with added purification, to make an atom bomb.

YEAH, BIBI!! NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON!

Perriello and Haskells Stimulating the 5th

Posted by ginnypub on February 19, 2009

U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello (D-VA-5th), founder of Res Publica (If you aren’t a socialist, you’re selfish) and Avaaz (We hate Jews and you should, too), which is a spin-off combining Res Publica and MoveOn (We’re traitors and you should hate America, too), spoke at Martinsville High School yesterday.

The Martinsville Bulletin, owned by Robert and Elizabeth Haskell, who award grants to ACORN and convicted domestic terrorist Bernadine Dohrn,  among others, ran a story today about Perriello’s visit.

“Sizing up the stimulus”-Perriello tells bill’s impact

If federal, state and local officials work together to use the funds from the $787 billion stimulus bill, the economy will begin to recover from this “very, very serious crisis,” 5th District U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello said Wednesday.

Perriello spoke at a forum at Martinsville High School. He explained some of the highlights of the bill and how Virginians will be helped, and then fielded questions about the stimulus bill and other subjects from more than a dozen people. Nearly 100 people attended the event, which lasted more than an hour. Here’s a photo of the “nearly 100 people”.

According to Perriello and a press release from his office, the stimulus bill:

• Provides tax relief for families and small businesses. More than 35 percent of the package will provide direct tax relief to 95 percent of American workers and spur job growth for businesses. (About that “direct tax relief”…It was cut from $500 for individuals and $1000 to couples down to $400 and $800. For 6 months, June-Dec, 2009, workers will get $13 more in their paychecks per week.  In January 2010, that falls to $8.)

According to a new White House estimate, 7,800 jobs will be created or saved in the 5th District as a result of this stimulus package, 200 more than estimated earlier, said Jessica Barba, Perriello’s press secretary. (About those jobs…Small business tax benefit was gutted from $67 billion to only $4 billion. In place of relief for the little guy, a $3.2 billion tax break for General Motors Corp was added.)

Nita Hairston of Henry County was at the forum with her sons Benton and Bryant Hairston, 10th-graders at Martinsville High School who are in the JROTC program at the school. They want to go to Virginia Military Institute and enter the military.

She asked Perriello about the war in Afghanistan. Perriello said the United States needs a “force commitment” but needs to articulate its strategy and end goal. (Mrs. Hairston, you’ll notice your question wasn’t answered. Here’s why:

Veterans: Nearly all items for Veterans Affairs were reduced and the $2 billion the Senate wanted for VA construction was wiped out altogether. The VA did get one thing: $1 billion for medical facilities renovation and retooling.

Military construction: Cut and put into a general pot, a change from targeted money for each branch of the services. Army construction alone went from $600 million in the Senate and $900 million in the House to $180 million in the final bill. But negotiators compromised over a general military construction fund — the House wanted $3.75 billion while the Senate allocated $118 million and settled on $1.45 billion for all services. )

 

 

FBI: Senate had allocated $475 million but all was cut out of final bill.
