It included several Jewish town, the largest Jewish settlement in Saudi Arabia, conquered by Mohammed about 628 A.D. Khaybar is situated in a volcanic region covered by malarial swamps. The Jews of Khaybar were a rich community of traders as well as farmers, raising grapes, dates, vegetables and grain. They produced silk garments that were sold and known throughout the Hejaz. They manufactured metal work implements and weapons The settlements of Khaybar were concentrated around three centers – Natat, Shiqq and Katiba.
Khaybar! Khaybar! and slogans mentioning Khaybar became a traditional Muslim chant during attacks on Jews and in demonstrations. One such chant is Khaybar Khaybar ya Yahoud, jaish Muhammad saufa ya‘ud, meaning “Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Muhammad will return”. The Hizbullah version is Khaybar, Khaybar ya Sahyoun, Hizbullah qadimun, meaning “Khaybar, Khaybar O Zionists, Hizbullah is coming soon.” Hezbulla renamed one model of their Syrian-supplied rockets, used in the 2006 Lebanon war against Israel, Khaybar II.
Well, as the world burns down with riots and protests, the White House was able to find the time to throw yet another party. There must have been an opening on the President’s schedule. Among the guests was John Legend, who has been complaining about getting a tax “break”. Glenn gave his reaction to the story on radio this morning.
“Singer John Legend is very upset. Why? Because he’s a millionaire who got a tax cut. Quote: People fought to give me, a millionaire, a tax cut this year. I don’t need it. And all the other millionaires don’t need it, either,” Glenn said.
“You give away all the money to a charity of your choice. That’s what I do. I give a lot of money to charity. Better yet, give it as a little gift to the U.S. Government. Nobody’s stopping you from writing a bigger check to the U.S. Government. Go ahead. Look it up. The address is online. And give me a call when you’ve made and written that check to the IRS, you dope.”
“He’s in the news again because of the party at the White House while the world was burning last night, the White House was partying,” Pat explained.
Pat continued, “Last night the party included not just John Legend but Seal, Jamie Foxx, Nick Jonas I guess of the Jonas Brothers, Sheryl Crow was there.”
“By the way, John, you didn’t get a tax cut! You’re going to pay the same taxes this year that you paid last year,” Pat said.
“I asked one of the guys who used to be the head of the IRS. This is like five years ago. I said, has anybody ever sent, intentionally, overpaid their taxes? You know, some millionaire said, hey, I got a million dollars that I want to pay? He said occasionally we’ll get somebody who say they want to apply it directly to the debt but nobody ‑‑ did I say Hollywood, anybody? He said, no, nobody just says, hey, I’m going to pay extra, I just want to pay extra, give it to some of the other ‑‑ give it to the EPA and give it to DHS, give it to those guys. Spread it around a bit. No, no. Nobody does it. You know why? Because they know charities are more effective than the federal government. That’s why. It’s ridiculous. Ridiculous,” Glenn said.
5, 6, 7, 8 … President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama got their groove on at the White House Motown celebration last night with some high-profile friends.
~ The worse insult to me is it was Motown night! I live and breath motown and I am sad I was not invited! My personal dedication to the Obama…~JP
Trouble Man by Marvin Gaye. For those of you who do not know the song or the lyrics (abridged):
I come up hard, baby
But now I’m cool
I didn’t make it, sugar
Playin’ by the rules
I come up hard, baby
But now I’m fine
I’m checkin’ trouble, sugar
Movin’ down the line
I come up hard, baby
I’m in for real, baby
Gonna keep movin’
Gonna go to town
I come up hard
I come up, gettin’ down
There’s only three things
That’s for sho’
Taxes, death and trouble, h’oh!
This I know, man, is
This I know, sugar
Girl, ain’t gon’ let it sweat me, baby
Come up hard, baby
I had to fight
Took care of my bid’ness
Wit’ all my might
I come up hard, awful hard
I had to win
Then start all over
And win again
I know some places
And I see some faces
I’ve got the connections
I dig my directions
What people say, that’s okay
They don’t bother me, oh yeah
I’m ready to make it
Don’t care what the weather
Don’t care ’bout no trouble
Got myself together
I feel the kind of protection
That’s all around me
I come up hard, baby
I be for real, baby
With a trouble minds
Movin’, goin’ to town
‘I’m on the ground, yeah, yeah!’
I didn’t make it, baby
Playin’ by the rules

The Wisconsin Assembly has just passed a bill that would take away many collective bargaining rights in WI. It will move on to the Senate next, but many are saying good luck passing it there, since Dems are missing in action … still. They only need one Democrat present to take a vote on the issue. A Tea Party activist in Illinois tracked some of the AWOL Dems down recently and asked them about their reasoning. He talked to Martha about his ambush.

Flashback: Ronald Reagan Called Gadhafi the “Mad Dog of the Middle East”
Qaddafi has brutally cracked down on his people for trying to oust him as dictator. Hundreds have been killed. President Obama has failed to condemn Qaddafi by name. Obama has proven himself to be a spineless leader who has close ties to Qaddafi. How did a strong leader and believer in freedom and the American way view Qaddafi? Watch former President Ronald Reagan tell it like it is in this video:
Ronald Reagan calls Colonel Khadafi the mad dog of the Middle East.
Petra Cahill, MSNBC news editor answers the question:
What is the etymology of the phrase and when was it adopted by Arab protesters?
The term appears to have been first used in the United States by the Weathermen, also known as the Weather Underground, a radical leftist, anti-government organization. The anti-Vietnam war organization planned several “days of rage” as an effort to “bring the war home.” Beginning on Oct. 8, 1969, a few hundred protesters ran through the well-heeled streets of Chicago’s Gold Coast smashing everything from cars to fancy shop windows. After four days of protests and repeated clashes with the police, 287 people were arrested.
The Weathermen organization eventually petered out after the end of the Vietnam War.
No they did not, the SDS has returned. This is from Glenn Beck:s show from JUST a few days ago:
Right about now, Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn must feel mighty proud of themselves with the revival of Students for a Democratic Society. You can see for yourself how they were integral in these protests against Wisconsin and more.
—>See this on these radicals: You Don’t Need A Weatherman To Know Which Way The Wind Blows
There is a story from yesterday’s news titled, House Republicans Cut Transportation Funding Already Awarded…More than $8 million already spent on planning phase of “Englewood Flyover”
It all ties in. It tells how Bobby Rush (congress critter) is livid over this. The SAME Bobby Rush who co-founded the Illinois chapter of the Black Panthers in 1968 and was made its “defense minister”. His son, Huey, was named after Panther leader Huey Newton. Rush was present when fellow Black Panther Fred Hampton was killed in a police raid And the people of my hometown were dumb enough to put him in Congress!

Understand back then the BPP was tied in and pow wowed with Weather Underground. It all comes together concerning the 60’s radicals. Thus the symbol of the BPP, supposedly for Black power but you see the symbol used today with the fist raised, with the fist bump. It is universal in every protest you see from the leftist radicals. Cute hey?
The left saw Hampton etal as a ‘revolutionary’. Back home in 68′, the police & the FBI were blamed for his ‘murder, ‘Assassination’…Defended & lauded by the likes of Noam Chomsky & Kathleen Cleaver
Also note that Kathleen Cleaver was married to Eldridge Cleaver. She was part of the Black Panther Party (BPP), communications secretary, 1968, cofounded BPP international wing, 1970; cofounded Revolutionary People’s Communication Network.
Eldridge Cleaver was a leading member of the Black Panther Party, a convict, and a writer. His most famous book is Soul on Ice.
But sure, they were victims of the FBI and CPD. Click the image to read the original Chicago Tribune story:
— December 4, 1969 Chgo. Tribune The Black Panther Raid and the death of Fred Hampton..Controversy rages after seven minutes of gunfire silence two members of the revolutionary group.
So understand, the radicals of the 60’s that I grew up knowing, were not that much older than me and they are all still here today. the force behind, the legacy of what you are witnessing with this nationally organized fiasco of Obama and his friends. It began with Alinksy and his ‘Rules” and continues with Frances FOX Piven JUST last month with her encouraging a new Violent Revolution
And what happened JUST the following month? The ongoing assault and attempt at a new ‘Revolution’. You know all the players. They are infested in your daily lives and one has to wonder, how do we, as patriots and conservatives combat them? I am here to tell you WE read and analyze the rulebook ! The best defense and all that…
~ Click image for Days of Rage
Seeking to “bring the war home,” the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) called for four “Days of Rage” in Chicago in October 1969. A few hundred protesters, many wearing protective gear, smashed store windows, pounded on cars, struggled with police and got tossed in jail.
