Mark Levin Interviews Dr. Zuhdi Jasser About New Clip Of Radical Imam Rauf (3 Parts)

Aug 302010

At Exactly 10:00 am immediately following the Intro Music at Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor Rally a Flock of Geese did a Fly-Over in perfect formation over the Reflection Pool starting from the Washington Monument almost to the Lincoln Memorial.

We were saying the Pledge of Allegiance when to my right I spotted three geese, flying side-by-side over the reflecting pool of the National Mall in the direction of the Lincoln Memorial and just as the birds calmly reached the end of the pool they banked to the south. I was standing with a throng and beside my friends, the Towson twins, and was sure I wasn’t alone in seeing the geese. When we finished the pledge I turned and looked at one of them. “It’s a good omen,” she told me. Then as the crowd joined in the Star Spangled Banner, a larger flock of geese calmly flew over the water and then broke into a northerly turn.

It was a day of imagery and mostly kind words. Our caravan of 3 busses left Millsboro, Delaware at 3:01 A.M., Saturday, for the Beckoning. A name given to Glenn Beck’s gathering at the Lincoln Memorial. At 5:02 A.M., I looked to my left at the Capitol Dome, bathed in light. The city and its monuments survive far more crises than many of the people serving beneath the Dome. At 6:45 A.M.,
our state delegation was intact after two seating changes and I had a cup of coffee while in a chair beneath a cherry tree. I surveyed the mall and as the dawn was breaking could see a constant movement of humanity. It continued throughout the day.

A friend, a native of Rochester, arrived late for the program after his Metro stop failed to manage the crush. Another friend from Rochester found a seat on the steps in front of Mr. Lincoln. She texted the Metro lines were swamped and running 2 hours off schedule.

Somewhere I read Saturday night CBS News pegged the crowd for the day at 87,000 people. This time, folks, the photographic evidence and testimony of the New York Times and Washington Post make the CBS estimate laughable.

Memo to Katie Couric: Your figure is the actual number of people watching you in July. And you forgot to conspire with your big media buddies before placing feet in mouth.

The Post insisted the crowd was mainly white, as if this is somehow an indictment. According to the United States Census, there are far more whites than blacks in America. It’s not an opinion, a fact and crowds often reflect overall population. Oh, and perhaps they didn’t see the makeup of our section. It was quite “racially” diverse, not that it matters to anyone but liberals and mainstream media.

The two big papers made an editorial decision to avoid numbers because of the obvious size of the rally and because the larger the turnout the better it proves just how out of touch the Brauchli-Meinhof Gang is with the country.

When it finally got underway the crowd listened to three hours of tent revival but with sky as our canvas. It was a call to self-reliance, faith and making a personal decision to share success with your neighbors. In other words, it bared the divide with big government, media and those liberals identifying as people of faith. If you have faith you rely on God and not on government. If government becomes a god before Him I think you see the philosophical and certainly moral lapse.

You’ve likely now read all sorts of reviews from all sorts of political perspectives about the event. Chagrined big media writes there was little in the way of politics but for the Gadsden flags. I guess the media types were asleep in history class. I learned of the use of
the flag, symbol and phrase as a fourth grade student in Mrs. Sheridan’s class (and, yes, her husband shared a historic name with a Civil War General) in Cuba, New York in the fall of 1971) and later learned of its history with our brave U.S. Marine Corp.

Which is why I find it strange the Times, Post and the old alphabet networks didn’t mention the lack of American flags at the counter demonstration

We stayed for the concert following the main program. Our party didn’t leave for busses until 3:00 P.M. Near the welcoming center used at the World War Two Memorial we found ourselves across a street from some of our less patriotic countrymen. This group had
members thrusting fists into the air and while offering furious shouts. They carried an odd and unfamiliar assortment of flags. A young man standing with me and watching this scene made the stinging comment. “Notice they don’t have any American flags?”
he commented. This young man isn’t typically viewed as Caucasian but he loves his country.

A member of our party located a flag, crossed the street and offered the marchers the flag and water. The only thing worse than the language they spewed was the filth scrawled on so many of their signs. I guess the Reverend Mr. Al Sharpton approved? The mainstream media types were in search of hate and violence and watched us like a schoolyard of unruly children and yet I’m not reading or watching anything on my television detailing the bile of the Sharpton sheep.

We moved on past the Washington Monument and waited for our busses by a traffic light. In the distance we could see a large image of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in a public park. And we could hear the sound or recording of an angry speaker floating from that direction. It’s about the same time we heard shouting to our south. A black man was walking up the street and carrying a tall sign with numerous profanities scrawled on the poster board. As he waited for the stop light he berated our group. Finally, I
asked him why he wasn’t carrying an American flag. As he spouted more vitriol the Towson twins asked the same question. “I don’t
need any flags, I’m a citizen of the world,” he replied. Then this large man turned his anger on the twins, both women at least a foot shorter than him. A member of our group offered him a handshake as a sign of peace.

Then Glen Urquhart walked up to the man. Our candidate for U.S. House of Representatives also gave up quite a height disadvantage. As Glen greeted the fury he used both of his hands in a clasp and began singing: Amazing grace, how sweet the sound…

The man started singing with him. Then large numbers of people waiting for the light to change joined the chorus. It happened. There are many witnesses. When we finished the man still had issues but they were muted and as he talked they became even more muted and he explained he shares some of our views on social issues.

I was there. Late on a Saturday afternoon, late in the summer in our country’s center of government and beneath the shadows of the Washington Monument and Glenn Beck and Al Sharpton were nowhere to be found.

“I feel the need… the need for speed.”

t is bad enough that the US Government is just standing by while Iran makes nuclear weapons.

Now, Iran is demanding that the United States sell them our F-14 Tomcats.

A top general declared on Tuesday that the Iranian Air Force is seeking a return of fighter jets it bought from the U.S. in the 1970s.

The United States sold 80 F-14s to Iran in 1974. However, it refused to deliver them to Iran after the Islamic Revolution.

“We want to take back bombers blocked by the U.S. because it is our legitimate right. However, this issue must be pursued by relevant organizations through relevant channels,” Hossein Chitforoush, the Air Force Deputy Commander, told the Mehr News Agency.

If you remember the fighter, it was the same one used in the hit movie Top Gun.

Iran wants their Muslim brother to honor his country’s obligations, all in the name of peace.

The sad part is, even an absolute weakling like Jimmy Carter knew it was a bad idea to give the Muslim extremists the fighters, but it we do not keep a close eye on this situation, President Obama just might give Iran the F-14′s that they so desire.

All in the name of peace… or something.

(Reuters) – Iran has stockpiled enough low-enriched uranium for 1-2 nuclear arms but it would not make sense for it to cross the bomb-making threshold with only this amount, a former top U.N. nuclear official was quoted as saying.

In unusual public remarks about Iran’s disputed nuclear programme Olli Heinonen, the former chief of U.N. nuclear inspections worldwide, told Le Monde newspaper that Iran’s uranium reserve still represented a “threat.”

Until he stepped down earlier this month for personal reasons, Heinonen was deputy director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency and head of its nuclear safeguards department, which verifies that countries’ nuclear programmes are not being diverted for military use.

A no-nonsense Finn, he was one of the U.N. agency’s leading experts on Iran, which denies Western suspicions that its nuclear programme is aimed at making bombs despite intelligence indications to the contrary, which he investigated for years.

In the interview published on Thursday, Heinonen said the Islamic Republic now possessed three tonnes of low-enriched uranium, material which can be used to fuel nuclear power plants, or form the core of a bomb if refined much further.

“In theory, it is enough to make one or two nuclear arms. But to reach the final step, when one only has just enough material for two weapons, does not make sense,” Heinonen said in the interview carried out just before he left office.

In comments translated from English to French, he suggested this was not sufficient to constitute a serious bargaining chip in any negotiations with the United States, the Islamic Republic’s old adversary.

“But this constitutes a … threat,” he said, apparently referring to Iran’s LEU stockpile.

Heinonen said the United States estimated that Iran would need a year to convert its low-enriched uranium to higher-grade material, adding that this was a not a “bad estimate.”

Top Pentagon officials told the U.S. Congress in April that Iran could produce enough highly enriched uranium for a single nuclear weapon in as little as a year — but would probably need three to five years to assemble, test and deploy it.

World powers hope that new U.N., U.S. and European sanctions imposed on Iran since June will persuade it to enter negotiations on its nuclear programme which the West hopes will lead to a suspension of all uranium enrichment activity.

Iran, which says its nuclear work is aimed at generating electricity so that it can export more of its gas and oil, has repeatedly ruled out halting enrichment, while keeping the door open for talks.

Heinonen is probably best known for giving a closed-door presentation to diplomats on Iran in 2008 which indicated links between projects to process uranium, test explosives and modify a missile cone in a way suitable for a nuclear warhead.

His department’s five-year investigation based on Western intelligence funneled to the agency helped harden IAEA concerns that Iran might have worked to develop a nuclear-armed missile and was still doing so.

Tehran says the intelligence is forged and that its atomic work is solely for peaceful purposes.

Ben Jealous, president of the NAACP, told that if Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have A Dream’ speech were read to the crowd at the ‘Restoring Honor’ rally, no one would applaud. That’s a round-about way of him calling the crowd racist.

So, Glenn Beck’s rally audience is racist. Wow, did Ben Jealous think that up all by himself?

Restoring Honor Rally- Glenn Beck Tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr.

Aug 302010

It may look like any other afternoon along this busy shopping strip outside El Paso, Texas, with people walking in and out of stores and restaurants and traffic moving at a steady clip. But inside a particular establishment, one of our sources is waiting to buy nearly $20,000 worth of cocaine from a local gang member.

The operation represents one of the many ways we are fighting the drug trade along the Southwest border. From small street-level drug buys to major cases targeting the highest levels of cartel and gang leadership, our agents and law enforcement partners attack the problem from every angle to gain intelligence and to disrupt and dismantle trafficking organizations.

On this day, agents from our criminal enterprise/gang squad are working with local and state officers to build a case against the gang. Members of the team—all in plain clothes and driving unmarked vehicles—are inconspicuously and strategically parked near the site of the establishment. The source inside is wearing a wire, and his conversations can be heard on car-to-car radios. If anything goes wrong, the source will say a code word and the team will quickly be inside.

At a final briefing before the operation began, the team leader—one of our veteran agents—spoke to the group in a parking lot behind a nearby municipal building. He went over the plan again in detail, stressing the danger involved and the need for extreme caution to make sure everyone stayed safe. Then, like a basketball coach before a game, he gathered the team in a circle and read aloud the Bureau’s policy on the use of deadly force.

An hour later, the source was inside, but the target wasn’t—he called to say he would be late. While they waited in their car and listened to the radio chatter, two of our agents on the operation—we’ll call them Smith and Johns—explained the economics of the drug trade in El Paso and across the border in Juarez.

“Where you have gangs,” Smith said, “you have drugs. And in El Paso, all the drugs are coming from across the border.” A kilo of cocaine in El Paso costs about $20,000, but can be sold in Chicago, Atlanta, New York, or Miami for more than $30,000. There is a lot of money to be made.

Finally, the target arrived, but without any drugs and only vague promises to produce them that day. The team leader sent a text message to the source to leave, and then canceled the operation. “We’ll try again tomorrow,” he said.

False starts and dead ends are typical in such drug cases, Agents Smith and Johns said later. But the work is important. Even though small drug buys won’t break the backs of the cartels, Johns explained, “We gain a lot of intelligence from these operations, and sometimes we develop new sources as a result. And every kilo of coke we take off the streets is one that doesn’t make its way to American kids.”

The Southwest border, by the numbers: 2,000: approximate number of miles the U.S. Southwest border shares with Mexico; $18-39 billion: estimated number of illegal dollars that flow annually from the U.S. accross the Southwest border to enrich Mexican drug cartels; 2,600: number of drug-related muders in Juarez, Mexico in 2009; 28,000: number of drug-related muders in Mexico since 2006; 93%: estimated amount of all South American cocaine that moves through Mexico on its way to U.S. customers; 701,000: kilograms of marijuana seized during the first five months of 2010 in the Southwest border states (Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas); 6,154: total number of individual seizures of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine during the first five months of 2010 in the Southwest border states; 12: the number of FBI border corruption task forces operating along the Southwest border; 1: the number of corrupt border guards it would take to allow a terrorist carrying a weopon of mass destruction into the U.S.

The Dana Show by DanaLoesch

Al Sharpton’s march was more about hate than Dr. King’s dream. From Secular Stupidest:

~ These people were a bane to MLK when he was in the midst of his struggle. THEY changed the climate of what he was trying to do! They said he was too much of a passivist! They are hypocrite race-baiters! According to them white people don’t share the wealth of their civil rights. Alveda King said it best: We are the “Human Race” . How different the presentation of this instigating march & their words in comparison to this ~JP

Dr. King’s dream was hijacked, alright. His family spoke at the non-partisan, non-political uplifting event at the Lincoln Memorial instead of taking part in this. What does that say to you?

~H/T to kshaidle for the FYI on this blog & article

The overt ridiculousness I saw from white liberals towards black conservatives on 8/28 was unbelievable.

Great video from Marooned in Marin via P/O’ed Patriot shows powerful speaker Michael Warns and black republicans take on white liberals who condescend to ask them where their African religion went:

I interviewed Warns for PJTV; this fellow in this shot is the one who told Warns and the black republican group that they were “disgusting” and that he would “pray for them.”
