An Act Of Faith And Heroship

I was going to go off on one of my tirades as to what is going on in Wisconsin and the world when I stumbled across the following story on the Political Pistachio website which I’m re-posting for all to see.

As we look around at what is going on in the world today whether it be the hatred of Radical Muslims towards the West, the idiocy being demonstrated in Wisconsin by not only out of control “I don’t give a damn about anyone but myself” union activists and of course our Marxist President, one cannot be blamed if all they feel is a sense of bewilderment. We see hate and a complete lack of respect for our fellow man. Yet, just when things seem to have gone completely into the gutter, there comes an act that restores one’s faith in mankind as a whole.

What occurred as described below is the perfect example of man believing deeply in one’s faith and in turn practicing the principles that places us at the top of the food chain! Coach Chris Hogan, his players, the faculty and cheerleaders and the parents and fans of Faith Academy are all true heroes. They not only showed some troubled youths what faith can accomplish but they were also true to themselves! I am honored to hopefully help spread the word on this courageous deed. In this day and age of open hostility towards the mainstream religions and people, it is heartwarming to see there are still good people that are fighting the good fight!

Political Pistachio is the Blog Home of the Writer and Blog Talk Radio Host, Douglas V. Gibbs. I have re-posted the following from his site:

Faith Gives Hope, at a Football Game

The high school football game was between Grapevine Faith Academy and the Gainesville State School. Faith is a Christian school and Gainesville State School is located within a maximum security correction facility.

Gainesville State School's 14 players play every game on the road, and going into the game against Faith Christian, their record was 0-8. Up to that point, Gainesville had only scored twice.

The Gainesville players are teenagers convicted of crimes ranging from drugs to assault to robbery. Their equipment is old and outdated, and they play simply for the opportunity to gain a little freedom on a Friday Night.

Faith Academy was heavily favored, with a record of 7-2. They had 70 players, 11 coaches, and the latest equipment.

Chris Hogan, the head coach at Faith Academy, knew the Gainesville team would have no fans and it would be no contest, so he thought, "What if half of our fans and half of our cheerleaders, for one night only, cheered for the other team?" He sent out an email to the faithful asking them to do just that. "Here's the message I want you to send," Hogan wrote. "You're just as valuable as any other person on the planet."

Some folks were confused and thought he was nuts. One player said, "Coach, why are we doing this?" Hogan said, "Imagine you don't have a home life, no one to love you, no one pulling for you. Imagine that everyone pretty much had given up on you. Now, imagine what it would feel like and mean to you for hundreds of people to suddenly believe in you."

The idea took root. On the night of the game, imagine the surprise of those 14 players when they took the field and there was a banner the cheerleaders had made for them to crash through. The visitors' stands were full. The cheerleaders were leading cheers for them. The fans were calling them by their names. Isaiah, the quarterback-middle linebacker said, "I never in my life thought I would hear parents cheering to tackle and hit their kid. Most of the time, when we come out, people are afraid of us. You can see it in their eyes, but these people are yelling for us. They knew our names."

Faith won the game, and after the game the teams gathered at the 50-yard line to pray. That's when Isaiah, the teenage convict-quarterback surprised everybody and asked if he could pray . he prayed, "Lord, I don't know what just happened so I don't know how or who to say thank you to, but I never knew there were so many people in the world who cared about us." On the way back to the bus, under guard, each one of the players was handed a burger, fries, a coke, candy, a Bible, and an encouraging letter from the players from Faith Academy .

What an incredible act of Christian witness and kindness and goodness that was. Proverbs 11:17 says, "Your own soul is nourished when you are kind." Proverbs 3:27 says, "Do not withhold good when it is in your power to act."

Hatred: Israeli and Racial

Let’s start today with our Anti-Israeli leader, although I would think calling this clown a leader is about the same as calling the Sahara a ski resort.

“The U.S. informed Arab governments Friday that it will support a U.N. Security Council statement reaffirming that the 15-nation body "does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity," a move aimed at avoiding the prospect of having to veto a stronger Palestinian resolution calling the settlements illegal.”

I have said in the past I feel this clown is the most Anti-Israel leaning President in my lifetime. One only had to read his book as it was there in his own words! (Quote from Obama’s book: Audacity of Hope: ‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.’). My question is and has been, being of Jewish descent myself, I can't help but wonder how the Jewish population here in the U.S. keeps voting for Anti-Semitic liars, yet every polling day, they somehow blindly rush to do so. in turn, we now have an administration that appears more than happy to watch Israel be eradicated. "As Ye sow, so shall Ye reap". We are now witnessing the harvest of a seed that was planted centuries ago, nurtured over years and years, blooming every now and then (Nazi Germany for example) and now is in fact at full bloom.

I'm not sure what the answer is, but it sure as hell isn't the Anti-Semite in the White House anymore that it is the self hating Jews who helped elect him. Israel and in turn Western Civilization as we know it is in grave danger. The Muslims are candid about this while we here in Obama land are being told to accept it by our sad sack leaders! Yet, this could have been stopped if the electorate had just taken their responsibilities as voters seriously! When the President and his minions speak of Israel and the Mid-East, I sense pure open hatred for Israel. Ipoint out that's how I feel. I only know when I watch this clown speak and look at his eyes, I see hate. And that is a bad thing to see in anyone's leader.

One should not be surprised at the actions of a person who has actually been open about his ideology in the past. That is they shouldn't be if they weren't so open to accepting the lies and deceit that come from almost every politician. Almost every action this President has taken seems predicated on one thing, acceptance of the radical Muslim agenda as part of our society. As that, if it came to fruition would mean the end of Israel and our own way of life, one must conclude Israel is in grave danger.

Rant number 2: Where is the outrage form the leftist liberal press and black leadership?

Dallas Commissioner John Wiley Price:
As Price stood to leave, he looked at Turner and the five other citizens who addressed the court. Price said to them, “All of you are white. Go to hell!”
Price repeated “go to hell” three more times. An unknown member of the audience said, “You should be ashamed!”
“I’m not ashamed!” Price answered. “I’m not ashamed! Go to hell!”

Yesterday, the progressive website Alternet published an article that was critical of Herman Cain’s choice of entrance music for his speech at CPAC. Leftist author “Chauncey DeVega,” a writer whose one theme is race, wrote: (Thanks to the site)

"Instead, Herman Cain’s shtick is a version of race minstrelsy where he performs “authentic negritude” as wish fulfillment for White Conservative fantasies. Like the fountain at Lourdes, Cain in his designated role as black Conservative mascot, absolves the White racial reactionaries at CPAC of their sins. This is a refined performance that Black Conservatives have perfected over many decades and centuries of practice.

As you know, I find black garbage pail kids black conservatives fascinating not because of what they believe, but rather because of how they entertain and perform for their White Conservative masters.
We always need a monkey in the window, for he/she reminds us of our humanity while simultaneously reinforcing a sense of our own superiority. Sadly, there are always folks who are willing to play that role because it pays so well.
Herman Cain–an ironic name if ever, and one more suited to a tragic figure in a Harlem Renaissance era novella–is not “blackening twice” as some race minstrels chose to do.

Herman Cain’s shtick is a version of race minstrelsy where he performs “authentic negritude” as wish fulfillment for White Conservative fantasies."

Finally we have witnessed video and written words to the effect of “sending him back to the plantation, cut off his toes, hang him and his wife, etc.” in regards to the Honorable Justice Clarence Thomas. Have we seen one word uttered against this racist hatred from the co-opted media? NO! Where is Jesse, or Al or the NAACP? These so called black leaders think we are supposed to take them seriously! And yet they are in the forefront of fomenting the racial hatred that is permeating our society and politics. I am fed up with it! What is it Jesse? Hey Al! Why is it every time a black person says anything counter to your race baiting that you allow the hatred to be ignored. You hypocritical bums!

The liberal media is right there with them. They have the utter gall to lecture the public on civility and decorum while choosing to ignore the extremely vile vitriol that they themselves not only write about but actually glorify. Remember, a co-opted media can poison the reason of the people. But also there is this! Once the dictator or in this case a wanna be dictator gets in charge, the co-opted media is also expendable! The entire fiasco MAKES ME SICK. How sad there are not any real journalists left to fight this!

What Now Egypt?

What has taken place in Egypt over the last two weeks is stunning in scope. Yes, a dictator was over thrown and yes the people hopefully got what they wanted, a chance at self determination. The next question thought is what does this portend for the future?

We can all agree that Mubarak was a tyrant in the eyes of his people and deservedly so. And people here in the West cannot begin to imagine the hardships and travails of life in a country like Egypt or for that matter any Third World country, be it Egypt, Sudan or whatever. Too many of the citizens of the U.S., even if they were to look at it, are too busy whining about their own supposed problems to even consider what’s going on around the world. So be it. That’s what class warfare and the entitlement society have done to us.

However, as we look deeper into the Egyptian situation, we can see a rather disturbing pattern emerging. Listen to the talking heads of the MSM. Listen to the President and his out of touch administration, Hell, they can’t even get their stories straight. Hillary says one thing. Clapper says another. And the President openly welcomes the very element that can and will destroy Egypt and in turn put Israel and the West in dire straits. Of course I and many others will be called alarmists, racists or Anti-Muslim bigots for pointing this out, but it has to be said.

One only has to remember the Iran situation. Yes, the Shah as far as the people of Iran were concerned was a despot. As the people rallied there, the talking heads including our good buddy “lost in space Carter” went on and on about how the Ayatollah was in fact a moderate Muslim who would bring peace and open Democracy to the country. I distinctly remember the few brave souls who had done their homework and warned of the impending disaster that was coming. As it is now, they were branded as subversive or worse. The world sat back and we all know what has transpired since then.

As the Iran situation came to a head, the morons in the press and government here in the States put out the fallacy that the people of Iran, having grown use to the Freedoms they did have and their supposed love for all thing U.S. would in fact turn their back on radical Islamic fundamentalism and continue to embrace and expand the Western ideals to which they had grown accustomed to. Well, we all know how that worked out! Typical head in the sand gobbley goop from the West and presto!, an Islamic hell was born.

While one can hope the army there can keep the order and help transition to a free government, the chances of that happening in my view are slim at best. First, let’s take a look at the army. They have always been the power in Egypt since the overthrow of King Furuk. No secret there. Will they give up power?

As there is a vacuum in leadership right now can we assume the radical movements, those that any idiot can see are the best organized will in fact take their shots at power? You can bet your ass they will. The head of the Muslim Brotherhood is a known terrorist with a deep seated hatred for Israel. As we move forward, one has to assume they along with infiltrators from other radical Muslim states will do their best to install a Radical regime in Egypt.

It took about 30 days from the overthrow of the Shah, to the Ayatollah’s homecoming and then an almost instant plunge in radical Muslim horror that is now Iran. Is this what one wants for Egypt. And what about Israel? As we have a President who seems hell bent on hastening her destruction, will we come to the aid of Israel when the crap really hits the fan? If Egypt is taken over in the end by the radicals, will Israel survive? Hell, let’s not even go into the oil situation right now or the fact the Egypt controls the Suez Canal. At least Mubarak was honor bound to a treaty and kept too it. Can one even think for one moment that any radical function will not immediately turn on Israel?

For those out there who think I’m off base here as to what could happen, I now issue one of my Moron Alerts! What happened in Egypt happened in Iran! Heck, Mubarak even left on the same date the Shah did! For the few of us who seem to learn from history, this is almost like dejavu. The real problem is that unlike thirty years ago, there is now an organized radical Muslim front that will do anything to destroy Western Civilization as we know it! Yet our President, just like that idiot Carter before him, is to blinded by his own power mad ideology to see it!

These are and have been dangerous times. One must pray that the people of Egypt do the right thing. Israel’s safety as well as the balance of power worldwide depends on the march of Radical Islam being stopped now!

Obama World - Heaven Help Us!

I see the President’s ratings are going back into the dumpster after the “bump” he received after his B.S. session of last Tuesday. Gee whiz! He’s even diving after the MSM did their absolute best to equate this Dodo with Ronald Reagan. Wonder why? Oops, easy to figure that one out. The American people aren’t as stupid as Liberals think we are. None of the Doublepseak or Newspeak (1984 for those of you who refuse to learn how to read anything beyond the opiate for the masses being put out by the co-opted media) can stop the real truth from coming to the fore!

It has been reported that there are Wikileaks cables suggesting Obama agreed to give the Russians nuclear secrets as to Britain’s missiles as per the Daily Telegraph. Strange, isn’t it that we don’t see hardly anything mentioned about this by the co-opted MSM? Basically, it appears Comrade Obama used this as a bargaining chip to get the Russians to agree to the terms. The really bad part of this is that apparently the scum in the Senate either didn’t bother to read this treaty (thus the push to get it through the lame duck session) or they in effect stuck their heads up their asses doing the bidding of their corrupt leaders. Please note here. I for one do not exactly like the fact that this is from Wikileaks stolen cables, yet the cables are now out there.

If this is proven to be true, the U.S. is done as a perceived world leader! If this President has in fact done what is charged in the leaked cables, he must be impeached immediately! Were the people in the Senate notified as required of this action? If so, why did the Senate vote to allow this to happen? Or is it possible this is another "we didn't read the entire thing" moment? If in fact the leaders of the Senate did in fact have knowledge of this action then they do should be brought up on charges!
Again, this is alleged but something I feel is in line with the actions of this Marxist we now have in the White House. Very scary!

While on this subject, I see that one of the really leftist morons, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) is requesting an audience with the traitor Bradley Manning as there are allegations of “cruelty” as to his treatment, among other things that the poor little boy is being held in solitary confinement. Correct me if I’m wrong. This piece of scum openly admitted and in effect bragged about the fact that he stole and leaked the cables to Wikileaks or whoever. This so called soldier openly bragged about breaking his oath to protect and defend our country! And yet we have people out there who are worried about this traitor’s well being?! Let him rot in hell! The man committed treason! But then why should anyone be surprised at the crying from the Anti-American left! Someone sells out our country and they want to make him a hero! At least they are in lock step with the loony lefty in the White House!

We are being told the unemployment rate dropped to 9% or in effect got better by .08% in the last 2 months. Now seeing that we needed over 3,000,000 jobs created to lower the unemployment rate by one point yet only 36,000 jobs were created last month and for arguments sake we’re averaging less than 100,000 jobs created a month yet there are roughly 4 to 5 hundred thousand new unemployment claims every month, can someone please tell me how anyone should be expected to swallow the bullshit figures being put out by this administration and being perpetuated by the co-opted media propaganda machine?

Of course, I always like to include when possible any quote from the great Charles Krauthammer: ‘If Godzilla Appeared on the National Mall Al Gore Would Say It’s Global Warming’ Of course, I’m sure Al Gore and his like are in a tizzy about this one. LOL! And of course, we all know Godzilla came about because of reckless nuclear testing, not global warning! Seriously, a great and funny line that I really enjoyed!

Below is something that came from across the pond. In this time where our kids are suspended from school if they have a plastic butter knife in their lunch while we in turn allow a Muslim kid to have a 6” real dagger because “it’s part of his religion”, I’m glad to see someone who has the balls to say what has to be said.

Prime Minister David Cameron:
Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and the mainstream. All this leaves some young Muslims feeling rootless, and the search for something to belong to and believe in can lead them to this extremist ideology. The response should be a lot less of the passive tolerance of recent years and much more active liberalism. A passively tolerant society says to its citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone. It stands neutral between different values. A genuinely liberal country does much more. It believes in certain values and actively promotes them. If we are to defeat this threat, I believe it's time to turn the page on the failed policies of the past ... When a white person holds objectionable views - racism, for example - we rightly condemn them. But when equally unacceptable views or practices have come from someone who isn’t white, we’ve been too cautious, frankly even fearful, to stand up to them."

I agree with him. In this case, these people are in the United States. Either get with our way or get the hell out! We didn’t invite your sorry asses here! We welcomed you as we do all people, but we sure as hell should not put up with the collective politically correct bullshit of bending over and taking it up the rear all to allow you to dictate to us!

Finally, one would probably think that I am a bit cold and bitter today and they would be correct. Our nation is on the edge of becoming a third world Marxist nation. Once the leader of the free world, now our allies cannot even trust us if the allegations are true as to the latest Wikileaks garbage. The lies and distortions keep coming out from the propaganda ministers in the administration through their lackeys, the co-opted media. And we are expected to never question this hard core leftist’s bad policies. Do that and we will be branded racists or worse.

Yesterday was Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday. Whether one agreed with him or not, there was one thing that stood out. He loved his country. He loved his fellow man. He stood by his allies. He preached America! How we have managed to go from one of the greatest President’s and leaders this world has ever seen to the American Ideal hating piece of work we now call the President is a question that not only needs to be answered, but in fact needs to be a case study of what not to do in the future so as to save our country!
