A source who served in Iranian intelligence says the Iranian regime is preparing to down Western airliners in case of an attack on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, has been preparing for war for some time as the Islamic regime closes in on developing nuclear weapons, says a source who served in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ intelligence and has recently defected to a country in Europe.
The source said the regime has taken several measures should war erupt:
*Thirty-two command and control centers have been formed around the country so that the Guards and the Basij can act independently in battle. In case of a breakdown of communication with the central government, their orders are to suppress any uprising from within and confront any potential enemy.
* All political prisoners and all activists within the country are to be slaughtered, as are those Iranian opponents outside the country, to ensure no viable opposition will remain to guide an uprising to overthrow of the regime.
* Thousands of cells have been established in collaboration with Hezbollah to conduct terrorist acts against Israel, America and the West. One specific preparation, as discussed by the Guard commanders, is to target America’s civilian airliners in order to cause terror in the West.
Elaborating on the regime’s strategy, Morteza Mirban, the deputy commander of the Guards’ ground forces, recently told Basij News that the Basij forces have the capability to hurt aggressors even in their own countries.
Mirban boasted that soon the Guards will have armaments that the enemy could have never imagined.
Referring to possible terrorist attacks on U.S. vessels in the gulf, Mirban said, “Today over 3,000 boats are in the Persian Gulf and involved in commerce, constantly passing by America’s naval ships. The question is, how can America engage us in war not knowing how it will get hit next? If they (America) dare to take up arms, they will see how they will regret their act.”
Mirban said that “all of the enemy’s bases are within reach of our missiles, and with our allies such as Hezbollah, we are capable of hitting them thousands of kilometers away. The enemy is interested in life, but because of our ideology, no matter if we kill for Allah or be killed on Allah’s path, we are victorious.”
The source said that Iran is close to obtaining a nuclear bomb, which regime leaders believe will make them invincible. The source and others disenchanted with the regime also wonder why the West is vacillating and allowing Iran to pursue its destructive goals.
The Revolutionary Guards announced Sunday that they will conduct three days of war games starting Monday.
“Long-, medium- and short-range surface-to-surface missiles will be fired from different locations in Iran … at replica air bases like those used by (U.S.) military forces,” said Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the head of the Guards aerospace division in charge of missile systems.
President Barack Obama has attacked Gov. Mitt Romney’s record in the private equity industry as CEO of Bain Capital. But ten years ago, as he struggled to raise funds for his long-shot U.S. Senate campaign, then-State Senator Obama decided to embrace the private equity industry and its wealthy Chicago political donors. At one point, Obama even sponsored a resolution in the Illinois Senate calling calling private equity firms like Bain “the best opportunity for long-term economic vitality” and for “the creation of jobs.”
Obama’s campaign ads dismissively compare Romney’s work at Bain to that of a “vampire” draining jobs and money from vulnerable companies and workers. After pushback from a handful of pro-free market Democrats in late May, the President himself publicly defended his campaign’s attacks on private equity firms like Bain.
But records from Obama’s time as a state senator in Illinois, along with recollections of those who worked with him, present a very different stance. They indicate that Obama worked hard to position himself as a strong supporter of the venture capital industry. Obama attended industry social functions and used his position in the state senate to propose bills consistent with the legislative goals of the venture capital industry in the state.
“The Barack Obama I knew in Springfield was very pro-private equity, private capital, and high technology” Republican State Senator Kirk Dillard, who served with Obama in the Illinois State Senate, said in a telephone interview with Breitbart News about Obama’s record last week. “Mr. Obama clearly had many friends in the private equity business when he was a legislator,” Dillard added.
Maura O’Hara, the Executive Director of the Illinois Venture Capitalist Association, concurred with Dillard’s assessment: “When he was in the State Senate I would describe him as a supporter of our industry.” She recalls meeting Obama in 2002 at the IVCA’s annual award dinner. That year, the IVCA’s lifetime achievement award for “service to the private equity/venture capital community” was given to Jack Levin of Kirkland & Ellis Law Firm. State Senator Obama was asked to deliver the award because both he and Mr. Levin had attended Harvard Law School, albeit several decades apart. A photo from the event shows Obama grinning as he stands with his arm around Mr. Levin. Both men hold the award up between them.
Given Obama’s record in Illinois, it is fair to ask when his own effusive admiration for private equity equity flip-flopped into his current disdain for “vampire” capitalism. When did he stop believing that private equity was the best chance for creating economic vitality, jobs, and genuine opportunity? And did he ever, in fact, believe it?
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting 46% of the vote, while President Obama earns 44%. On June 27th, the day before the Obamacare mandate was upheld by the Supreme Court, Obama was leading Romney 46% to 44%.
In the week leading up to the court decision, President Obama was leading Mitt Romney 48% to 43% according to the Gallup Daily tracking poll on June 28th. The rolling average tracking poll showed President Obama receiving ZERO bounce, still leading Mitt Romney by just 5-points, 48% to 43%.
Herewith are my 10 commandments for my daughter’s potential boyfriends. Read them and weep.
1. Thou shall understand that your presence doesn’t make me happy. Young squire, don’t expect me to be giggly when I meet you. As a matter of fact, you’re ruining my life right now. Therefore, don’t try to be cute with me. That stuff may work on my daughter or my wife, but it does not work with me.
2. Thou had better have a life. My wife and I have worked our tails off providing a good life for our girls; therefore, you better have one, Spanky.
3. Thou shall not touch my daughter, or I’ll tear your hands off and you’ll have to “whip the bishop” with a stub.
4. Thou shall look me in the eye, shake my hand like a man and turn off your cell phone. I don’t care how Snoop Dog acts and what you’ve seen on MTV or in the movies. If you come into my house mumbling, with your shades on and texting the entire time you’re around me, you’re probably going to be spending the next couple of days in ICU.
5. Thou shall understand that you are a boy talking to a man. Here’s some 411 to meditate upon before you address me. I am at least twice your age. I used to be a drug user/dealer until God zapped me.
6. Thou shall know that our family is old school. Do not even think about approaching me with liberal, hippy, agnostic, atheistic, anti-American or tree humping bull crap. I was raised by country-loving, God-fearing, hard-working, meat-eating, good ole’ Texan parents, and I have zero tolerance for what your long-toothed, rather mannish lesbian sociology teacher at Columbia U programmed you with—you dig?
7. Thou shall know that I like cool and expensive gifts and you shall provide unto me this bounty, if you’re smart.
8. Thou shall understand that if you’re dumb enough to tell me a dirty joke, I’m comfortable enough with kicking your butt. I’m not one of your thug buddies you can go down the gutter with. I want maturity when you are around my family.
9. Thou shall keep your word. If you say you’re going to do something, then I expect you to do it.
10. Thou shall do these three things: 1) Look good. Do not come into my house with earrings, a grill, or over sized pants with your butt cleavage hanging out. 2) Read. If I have to talk to you, you had better know as much about as many things as possible. 3) Serve.
The Supreme Court has made its decision on the health care overhaul.
Now it’s up to the voters to make theirs. And as Democrats and Republicans amp up their campaign to refocus the November race in part around health care, the melee could start looking a lot like 2010 — when both sides clashed over President Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement.
Of course, Democrats want to avoid the outcome of 2010, when they lost control of the House and lost several seats in the Senate.
DictatorCare is not about health-care, but about dramatically expanding government control over its citizens…
Regardless of how anyone attempts to justify the unjustifiable, 6/28/2012 will go down in American history as ‘Traitor Thursday,’ the day our constitutional republic was officially assassinated! DictatorCare is not about health-care, but about dramatically expanding government control over its citizens. It matters not what educational pedigree one might brandish, only the morally and ethically blind would embrace the lies and the subterfuge within this Trojan Horse.
Our religious and personal freedoms have been disemboweled from us, just as William Wallace was disemboweled for refusing to submit to English domination. Will people finally admit we can’t count upon Republicrats to do the right thing? Our moral and character crisis is driving us towards social, fiscal and constitutional Armageddon! ‘Experts’ are saying that November is our opportunity to correct the wrongs of our government. How naïve and arrogant can ‘experts’ be? One thing is certain. The solutions conservatives seek will not come through elections, at least not elections alone.
In the past fifty years, with the possible exception of Ronald Reagan’s two terms, when have elections brought us the conservative, moral, ethical and fiscal leadership that mirrored the ideals of our founders? The TEA Party movement was instrumental in rescuing the House of Representatives from the Demoncrats, but the Gutless Opposition Party elite have undermined what the TEA Party members were sent to D. C. to do. The GOP elite are even more sinister than the Demoncrats.
Satan has immersed himself throughout both of our major political parties, our society and churches.
Our only true hopes for recapturing our constitutional republic is God’s infinite mercy and intervention, along with us coming together as patriots to restore our constitutional republic. Our founding fathers called upon God and each other to establish a new nation built upon Judeo-Christian principles. They were a minority, but with God central to their cause, they were able to achieve the heretofore believed unachievable. Satan has labored for 236 years to destroy the greatest non-religious compact between God and man in the history of man. Until we reunite with our Creator and each other, we will continue to witness the ravenous appetite of a Satan-inspired, lawless, dictatorial government.
* Additionally, on American holidays, we can wear black or black armbands in lieu of the red, white and blue to display our disgust and lack of trust of our government. Only when DictatorCare and its coercion dictate is repealed, Dodd-Frank is repealed, the EPA is dismantled and its stranglehold upon our natural resources is eliminated, those behind ‘Fast & Furious’ are prosecuted, voter fraud is addressed, and our national sovereignty is re-established, etc. will we exit the darkness to which we are currently subjected, allowing us to proudly display and wear our patriotic colors once again.
We have several opportunities in our immediate future to display our unity for our constitutionally protected religious and personal freedoms. Independence Day (July 4th) is only days away. Baseball’s All-Star game is on July 10th, the Olympics are fast approaching, as are the collegiate and professional football seasons. Think of what the Nazi Broadcasting System (NBC) has invested in covering the Olympics, and how a significant reduction in viewership will seriously impact the network! FOX, CBS, ABC and ESPN have a lot to lose during football season if there is a big drop in interest and/or viewership. It may appear that I am asking a lot for all of us to forgo support of our Olympians and all of these events (I live in the Kansas City metro, site of the All-Star game), but drastic times and traitorous politicians demand drastic action.
With all of our freedoms that our form of government has afforded us and the resources to which we have been blessed by God, shrinking from our responsibility of passing our freedoms and resources to future generations means our darkness will be the worst experienced by any nation within the last two centuries. God cannot be defeated in the long term, but if we don’t turn to Him, begging for forgiveness and His divine intervention, He will allow Satan a temporary victory, until a future generation will embrace Him, as we should have. It’s time to hide the remote and tear up our tickets. If not for ourselves, we must act to preserve our constitutional republic for our children and generations to come, just as our parents and grandparents did for us.
Qur’an 2:71 “The semblance of the infidels is one who shouts to one who cannot hear. They are deaf, dumb, and blind. They make no sense.”
The parents gathered in the little schoolroom clutching smartphones, ready to snap pictures of science fair projects. The 12 children near the front shuffled notecards between their fingers, murmuring lines about static electricity and why oil and water don’t mix. Poster boards behind the kids touted the ideal weather conditions for a tornado, properties of magnets and the size of the solar system.
Most of the boys were dressed in suits or sports jackets, although one wore a traditional Muslim tunic and cap. The girls wore summer skirts and scarves tied around their hair and chins.
All of them are enrolled in the Iqraa School, which opened in September at the Anniston Islamic Center as the city’s first Muslim school.
In Arabic, “iqraa” means “read.”
As the school’s year-end science fair began last week, there were only a few indications of the new school’s religious affiliation: the children’s attire, a poster in Arabic listing the Hijri months of the year, a few references to the prophet Mohammad on the brightly colored walls.
“The idea was to provide an education system for our children where they can get the training for religion plus academics,” said Muhammad Haq, the imam of the mosque, who teaches the Quran and Arabic language classes at the school. “In the future, we would like to establish an academically excellent school that can attract other students who are not Muslim.”
Haq, called simply, endearingly “imam” by students, parents and members of the Anniston Islamic Center, may be focused on how to expand the school’s secular, academic reach, but he ultimately is the key to the spiritual side of Iqraa School.
He is one of the few people in northeast Alabama who knows the Quran by heart and can, therefore, instruct children in their own memorization endeavors.
The mission of the Anniston Islamic Center is to serve the Muslim community, in conjunction with promoting brotherhood, peace and family values. The operational philosophy of the Center is based on the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
~ Snippet because this is literally making me physically ill…
* There are two other Islamic schools nearby in Alabama — in Birmingham and Huntsville — but only the Huntsville facility offers memorization classes, (also known as indoctrination) Haq said.
But for now, the fledgling Iqraa School is structured as a three-year program for Muslim children to successfully complete their Quran memorizations. After the students have successfully done that, many of them will transfer back to Donoho.
Alabamians got their first induction into the trouble they were in up in Hunstville when college Democrats invite Louis Farrakhan to speak in Alabama back in April. At that time A&M University was hosting him.
I genuinely believe far too many Americans do not know what has been going on in America, let alone the South right under our noses. They have been infiltrating for years. Sharia has been being implemented now in so many cities in the United States. We struggle to object to them building mosques, but rarely do we win.
And here we go with the most alarming part, Haq wants to eventually help the academic side of the school earn accreditation, to hire a full-time teaching staff and to attract more students — Muslim and non-Muslim alike.
While faith-based schools don’t have to register with any state agency in Alabama, state law requires these schools to be sponsored by a local church. As such, Iqraa School is backed by the Anniston Islamic Center, the mosque at the same East Anniston location.
In closing let me share with you a few things from the koran about us ‘kafirs':
Upon the infidels — which none would be able to repel —
NQ Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert,
PK Upon the disbelievers, which none can repel,
SH The unbelievers– there is none to avert it–
YU The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off
And what does the koran have to say about us Chrisitians?
Qur’an 5:51 “Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends. They are but friends and protectors to each other.”
What they would like to do to us:
Qur’an 88:1 “Has the narration reached you of the overwhelming (calamity)? Some faces (Jews and Christians) that Day, will be humiliated, downcast, scorched by the burning fire, while they are made to drink from a boiling hot spring.”
Qur’an 5:35 “Believers, fear Allah and seek the way to approach Him, striving hard, fighting Jihad with all your might in His Cause that you may be successful. As for the disbelievers [previously defined as Christians], if they had everything on earth, two times over, to give as ransom for the penalty of the Day of Doom, it would never be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful torment. They will desire to get out of the fire, but they shall not be released from it. They shall have an everlasting torture.”
Qur’an 5:80 “You see many of them allying themselves with the unbelieving infidels. Vile indeed are their souls. Allah’s wrath is on them, and in torment will they abide.”
Then there is this goodie, which gives an entire new meaning to the word ‘tax':
Qur’an 9:29 “Fight those who do not believe in Allah or the Last Day, who do not forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, or acknowledge the Religion of Truth (Islam), (even if they are) People of the Book (Christians and Jews), until they pay the Jizyah tribute tax in submission, feeling themselves subdued and brought low.” [Another translation says:] “pay the tax in acknowledgment of our superiority and their state of subjection.”
Tabari IX:86 “Don’t seduce the Jews or Christians for incumbent on them is to pay the jizyah protection tax.”
Yah, kinda, sorta like ObamaTax.
Fellow Americans, your fate lies in their hands. According to an academic review of available survey-based data in 2001, informed by information provided by Muslim organizations and mosques, the highest reasonable total number of Muslims in the United States is 2.8 million. Can you imagine that number today, over a decade more of them infiltrating? How will we combat that?!
Qur’an 8:52 “They brought this on themselves. Their case is like that of Pharaoh and of those before them. They denied and rejected the revelations of Allah, and Allah destroyed them, punishing them for their crimes: for Allah is strict, severe in punishment.”
Two months later: Aimee Copeland, left, with her parents, Andy and Donna Copeland, outside Doctors Hospital in Augusta, Georgia. She was finally released today
The young woman whose body was attacked by a flesh-eating bacteria has finally left hospital two months after contracting the deadly disease when she fell from a broken zip-line.
Aimee Copeland, from Georgia, was released today from Doctors Hospital in Augusta. The 24-year-old is moving to an inpatient rehabilitation clinic.
She’ll spend the next several weeks learning to move with the aid of a wheelchair after having her left leg, right foot and both hands amputated.
Copeland’s speedy recovery has defied doctors’ initial prognosis. Her father says they at first gave her just a slim chance of surviving. She spent weeks sedated and using a respirator while undergoing amputations and skin grafts to replace infected skin.
Her father Andy spoke to msnbc about how momentous an occasion it was for Aimee to leave hospital.
‘I think you could say that she’s looking forward to it to the same degree that a child would look forward to leaving high school and going off to college, for her this is a major milestone.
‘I would consider it a rite of passage for her as it is the opportunity that she has to actually venture out and relearn her life skills and be able to resume as normal a life as she can have.
‘I believe her life can be extremely normal, whatever that word actually means. I think physically she’s actually progressed rapidly, certainly far ahead of the doctor’s schedule, what they thought she would do.
‘I would say spiritually, mentally, psychologically she is so strong right now and for her, to actually be able to grasp the concept that she’s lost her hands and feels blessed over that is an amazing thing.’
He also revealed they are in the process of making the house ‘Aimee friendly’ and building an extension onto it to be able to meet her needs.
The 24-year-old developed necrotizing fasciitis in a small cut she suffered after falling from a homemade zip line over a west Georgia river.
Mr Copeland wrote on his blog last week that when aimee and her family ventured outside for the first time since the accident, they reflected on the life-changing events – and Aimee showed breathtaking courage.
‘I don’t have any regrets about what has happened,’ Aimee told her father. ‘I don’t focus on what I’ve lost, I would rather focus on what I’ve gained. I feel like I’ve been blessed.’
She went on: ‘I am blessed to have the opportunity to experience something that not many other people have the chance to experience.
‘I am blessed to have the capacity to share my experience with others and have a chance to improve the quality of someone else’s life. I’m blessed to be different.’
