Most people would rather remain ignorant of any details surrounding a  brutal sexual assault; they would rather not hear the pain or emotionally laden description which is evident in the tone or eyes of the woman speaking.  While this may be understandable to a degree, it discounts the tremendous courage involved for a woman to publicly  speak of this heinous  act.

Lara Logan is a courageous woman, daring to publicly speak out of her worst nightmare materializing while pundits spoke authoritatively on how we, as Americans should rejoice in “democracy” manifesting in Egypt.

Thank you Ms. Logan for having the courage to speak.  Thank you for making public what has been apparently a dark unspoken terrible secret.

Warning may be triggering:

From Think Oppressive Progressive:

“Given that global warming is unequivocal,” climate scientist Kevin Trenberth cautioned the American Meteorological Society in January of this year, “the null hypothesis should be that all weather events are affected by global warming rather than the inane statements along the lines of ‘of course we cannot attribute any particular weather event to global warming.’”

So one rogue quasi-scientist makes a claim equating the severe weather with climate change and all the left wing lemmings start jumping off the cliff.  Trenberth was one of the lead authors on the UN IPCC Reports which failed to incorporate all analysis and data, skewing the reports conclusion to favor their religious-like mantra of global warming.

EPA Rules Force Shell Oil to Abandom Oil Drilling

Posted by courage On April - 25 - 2011

The question today is how does a government agency stacked with bureaucratic slugs, who have no accountability to the American people, wield the power to prevent a private oil company from drilling?

Shell Oil Company has announced it must scrap efforts to drill for oil this summer in the Arctic Ocean off the northern coast of Alaska. The decision comes following a ruling by the EPA’s Environmental Appeals Board to withhold critical air permits. The move has angered some in Congress and triggered a flurry of legislation aimed at stripping the EPA of its oil drilling oversight.

No government agency should have the power to enact laws or as they prefer to call them rules which prevent companies from doing business.  Agencies should have the power of oversight to enforce laws created by Congress, not blanket power to essentially shut down a private enterprise from doing business.

Instead of honestly dealing with the avalanche of debt threatening to bury the United States, the Obama administration attempts to persuade Standard’s and Poor to not lower credit rating.  Truly the Chicago thuggery way..

From Fox News:

Even though the White House has publicly downplayed the credit warning issued Monday from a leading agency, Obama administration officials were privately trying in recent weeks to convince Standard & Poor’s not to lower its outlook for U.S. debt from “stable” to “negative,” Fox News has confirmed.

“I will invite the same folks that we invited today,” he added. “And if that doesn’t work, we’ll invite them again the day after that. And I will have my entire team available to work through the details of getting a deal done.”

Obama’s team may not include the president himself. Despite the impasse in Washington over federal spending, the president as of early Wednesday was scheduled to give two speeches outside of Washington: one on energy in the Philadelphia suburbs, then another Wednesday evening to a group of black political activists in New York.

If the schedule remains intact, it will be the president’s first trip outside the capital since he officially declared Monday he will seek a second term. And while Obama (D) and his aides have repeated said he will not focus on his campaign in the next few months, his schedule may contradict those words.

Obama’s town hall on energy will be held at a wind turbine plant in the town of Fairless Hills in Bucks County, a well-known political bellwether in the Philadelphia area. While the city of Philadelphia overwhelmingly votes Democratic, its suburbs swing between the Democratic and Republican parties, making them crucial for Obama’s 2012 campaign.

The president defeated Sen John McCain (R-Ariz) in Pennsylvania with 55 percent of vote in 2008. But Republicans won the U.S. Senate and gubernatorial races there in November, suggesting a dip in enthusiasm for the president’s political party.

In New York City, Obama he won’t be wooing big-money donors, like he did last week. Instead, he will appear at the 20th anniversary of National Action Network, the group run by black activist and Obama backer the Rev. Al Sharpton.

For black voters, it’s not a question of whether they will support Obama, but how many will turn out in 2012. While polls show many other groups who backed the president in 2008 have fallen back in their enthusiasm, around 90 percent of blacks continue to approve of Obama’s performance in most polls. But Democrats say the huge black turnout that helped Obama win in states like Virginia and North Carolina is not a guarantee in 2012,as the motivation of electing the nation’s first black president is now gone.

Obama has NO Intention of Giving Back His Nobel Peace Prize

Posted by courage On March - 24 - 2011

From the beginning questions were raised regarding the legitimacy of Obama being awarded the Nobel Peace prize.  In his entire background there was nothing that warranted being given this International award.  Many chalked it up to affirmative action by the committee forever tainting the stature of the award.

Saying he is focused on ensuring that Libyans can “live out their own aspirations,” Obama defended America’s involvement in Libya,
saying, “we’re not invading a country, we’re not acting alone – we’re acting under a mandate issued by the United Nations Security Council in an unprecedented fashion and with unprecedented speed.” (emphasis mine)

What Obama is saying in this part of his statement about the Nobel Peace prize in essence,  is that a “mandate” by an international entity (the United Nations) which is not bond by the United States Constitution supersedes  his oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.

From Webster, Mandate:

1: an authoritative command; especially : a formal order from a superior court or official to an inferior one

2: an authorization to act given to a representative <accepted the mandate of the people>

3a : an order or commission granted by the League of Nations to a member nation for the
establishment of a responsible government over a former German colony or
other conquered territory

Do any of these definitions make you feel better?  This is an ongoing pattern of the pResident, he demurs the power of his position to the United Nations with its international law.

Obama Cedes Commander-In-Chief to “Others”

Posted by courage On March - 23 - 2011

I am beyond words.  We have NO business bombing Libya.  If some of the Arab nations want the fighting between its nut-job leader Gaddafi and opposition forces to end, how about this,  let them do the dirty deed.  And why are we bombing Libya.. humanitarian reasons they say but that flies in the face of decade long genocide that continues in places like Darfur and Sudan to name two.  Or how about just today Syria murdered 6 of its citizens today during a protest.  Will this be the next no-fly zone?

United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

Posted by courage On March - 23 - 2011

From Parental Rights:

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, often called the CRC or the UNCRC, is an international convention seeking to establish “civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights [for] children.” After ratifying or acceding to it, nations are bound to the CRC by international law.

Imagine if your national government had the audacity to appoint a “guardian” to monitor your child from birth, charged with the legal responsibility to evaluate your decisions as a parent and armed with the legal authority to “intervene, prevent or rectify” any violations of your child’s rights. Public and private schools alike are policed by the national government, and classes begin with singing about the principles of peace, tolerance, and the United Nations. Your child’s confidential medical records, stored in a nation-wide electronic register from birth until age twenty, can be accessed at any time, without your knowledge, by any physician, teacher, or government social worker in the nation.

Now stop imagining, because for parents in the 193 countries that have ratified the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child, each of these scenarios is true.
