President Obama is neither Muslim nor Christian. America's Atheists will be happy to learn that President Obama is one of them. In him they have a champion against crèches in public squares, the Ten Commandments in public spaces, In God We Trust on the dollar and religion in public life; Especially the last. Even though he believes the Muslim call to prayer in one of the most beautiful sounds he ever heard and never heard any of the sounds of his anti-Semitic and anti-American Christian mentor the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, he is hard pressed to admit he is a non-believer. In a speech he once said we are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and non-believers. He will not say he is Muslim even if he wants to. If the Reverend Wright is his only connection to Christianity he cannot admit to believing and agreeing with the Reverend’s anti-American views. So there he is; stuck between a rock and a hard place. Put away your Bible Mr. President. There are no dog-eared pages in your book. Put away your Koran until your Presidency is over. In the meantime you can hold on to your Atheism. It will protect you from the Christians and the Muslims and you can still say you agree with the non-believing minority. This will permit you to continue deceiving the American people and playing golf as often as you like without guilt. And you will never have to answer the question “When was the last time you went to church?”

There is so much discussion in the media about the Ground Zero Mosque, but in my view the questions being asked are wrong because they miss the important points. For example the President implied to the attendees of a Ramadan dinner at the White House that he supported the idea of building the so-called Islamic Cultural Center near Ground Zero. The next day he said he was talking about the right to do it, not the wisdom of doing so. He was accused of backtracking. That is the wrong accusation. He should have been accused of duplicity because he said one thing to a Muslim audience and something else to the American People. Had he indicated that he questioned the wisdom of building it to his Muslim audience the entire issue of backtracking and saying different things to different groups would have never come up. The President's duplicity is the issue. Let’s move on to the Mosque itself. The founder of the project, Imam Faisel Rauf, named the project the Cordoba Initiative. For the average American Cordoba is the Spanish explorer who discovered the Yucatan Peninsula. For Muslims it represents the Islamic conquest of Spain in 711. The project is named Cordoba as a signal to all American-hating Muslims that they were victorious in the 911 attack and the Islamic Center is a testament to that victory. Americans did not name the project. Imam Rauf did. Americans do not agree that we were complicit in the attack on the World Trade Center. The Imam Rauf does. It is the Islamic tradition to build Mosques over enemy ground that has been destroyed. Eventually Americans will have to decide what is worse: The duplicity of our President or his support for our avowed enemies.

I always try to bring new stuff to the table. I do not want to regurgitate things you have been hearing over the last two days, but instead wait a day or two and try to add some insight that hasn't already been said and is still pertainent. For example in coverage of the June 6th protest at the site of the proposed Ground Zero Mosque the article provides positive quotes for the Imam, Islam and the Mosque by Daisy Khan of the Ameican Society for Muslim Advancement. That article does not report that Daisy Khan is the wife of Iman Faisel Rauf, who is the chairman of the project. Does that make you go ...UMM...?

The level of disdain for the American people demonstrated by our (big D) Democratic leadership is so astonishing it staggers the imagination. It's as subtle as a sledgehammer. From Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's remarks about the smell of Americans as he passed them in the Halls of Congress to his most recent comments about conservative people of Spanish heritage. (I despise the term Hispanic and will try very hard to use an alternative.) House Speakers Nancy Pelosi who got a minimum-wage waiver for a constituent with a factory in American Samoa so dark-skinned islanders could be paid less than minimum wage. And finally the Obama's who prefer, it seems, to act and be treated like celebrities instead of serious people responsible for our nation's well-being. People who would rather be traveling than greet visitors to the White House. Talk show appearances seem more important than press conferences to this President. Exercise and golf are more important than honoring our dead or celebrating our country's important historic events. A man for whom hob-knobbing with Tiger Woods or Paul McCartney is more important than talking to Mr. John Smith or Ms. Jane Doe. The first ladies love for the extravagant needs no further explanation. It speaks for itself loudly. America needs a change.

Why are all the stupid people on our side? And why do they keep getting ahead? That is what I really want to know. As a conservative I am deeply disappointed that we cannot seem to find one intelligent, thoughtful, logical, person who can defend our positions whether it be an immigration law, gay marriage, politics, taxes, legislation, economics, education or even entertainment. All we get are stereotypical nut balls whose greatest success is winning for the opposition. For example take John McCain. When the aging John McCain had an opportunity to defeat Barack Hussein Obama during the 2008 Presidential campaign, he declared that Obama was an honorable man, would make a good President and that he (McCain) would not use Obama’s relationships with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, William Ayres and Bernadette Dorn or other America haters to win. So he lost. When Senator Lindsay Graham voted for Elena Kagen he said this was to show that he could be fair despite Democratic efforts to destroy almost every significant appointment to the Supreme Court made by Republican Presidents (Robert Bork and Miguel Estrada come to mind immediately. There have been others.) Graham has been a weak-kneed Republican his entire Senate career yet he seems to get reelected over and over again. Conservatives need the kind of men and women that Democrats get; People who do not wilt in the line of fire. People that hold their positions come hell or high water. I hope we are in for a change in the upcoming November elections or it will just be more of the same; lots of lip service and very little action.

"The US and the West must acknowledge the harm they have done to Muslims before terrorism can end," said Muslim Cleric Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, chairman of the Cordoba Initiative and the major force behind the Mosque near the WTC. It is a great irony that the Park Place tribute to the terrorists will rise to the sky and be visible for miles, while the 911 Memorial will be completely underground except for the reflecting pools, which bear no outward evidence that they are anything but a water feature in an office building complex. It is almost beyond belief that the NYC status quo would approve an above ground tribute to the nineteen Muslims who killed 3000 Americans and at the same time accept the invisible, underground memorial crypt as a tribute for the innocent who died that day. Championed by Mayor Bloomberg, the ACLU, the Landmarks Commission and the District One board, the Cordoba Initiative is a slap in the face to the victims of 911. It is meant to be a victory monument signifying a Muslim conquest, not unlike the Dome of the Rock, which was erected over Solomon's Temple and Mount Herod as a sign of victory over Christians and Jews over 1400 years ago. The tradition continues.

Today President Obama declared America's combat role in Iraq will end this month. However you should not think that this means an end to "the conflict or U.S. military casualties," he added. In an address at a Disabled American Veterans convention in Atlanta, the President said "Already, we have closed or turned over to Iraq hundreds of bases. We're moving out millions of pieces of equipment in one of the largest logistics operations that we've seen in decades. By the end of this month, we'll have brought more than 90,000 of our troop’s home from Iraq since I took office." He also said that, as agreed with the Iraqi government, the US would maintain a transitional force of about 50,000 troops until the military withdrawal is completed at the end of next year. For the uninitiated 50,000 troops is about five divisions and enough power for an invasion force. The President continued: "During this period, our forces will have a focused mission: supporting and training Iraqi forces, partnering with Iraqis in counter-terrorism missions, and protecting our civilian and military efforts. These are dangerous tasks. There are still those with bombs and bullets who will try to stop Iraq's progress, and the hard truth is we have not seen the end of American sacrifice in Iraq," he said. "But make no mistake; our commitment in Iraq is changing – from a military effort led by our troops to a civilian effort led by our diplomats. And as we mark the end of America's combat mission in Iraq, a grateful America must pay tribute to all who served there," he added. So despite his claim that the combat mission is over American troops will still be involved in combat, they will still be getting wounded and killed and they will still be there at least another year. Who do you believe: The President or you’re lying eyes?
