Bill Roggio has a new site: The Long War Journal. What I read today, gives me great pleasure. I would like to share a bit with you to get you to go read it. I’ll give you a hint, a top AQI bites it.

Senior al Qaeda in Iraq leader killed in airstrike.
By Bill Roggio, September 29, 2007, 12:00 AM.

The intelligence-driven raids against al Qaeda in Iraq’s command structure has netted two senior operatives in the past month, a senior American military intelligence official told The Long War Journal. On September 25, Task Force 88, the hunter-killer teams assigned to kill or capture senior al Qaeda operatives, killed Abu Usama al Tunisi, who is described as the possible successor to al Qaeda in Iraq’s leader Abu Ayyub al Masri. On August 31, Task Force 88 killed Abu Yaqub al Masri, al Qaeda’s military advisor to units operating in and around Baghdad. [Read more.]

How about that, eh? Way to go guys. Keep up the good work. The sane among us support not only you, but your mission as well. Godspeed.

PS. My left paw isn’t working, so it is hard for me to write. That also makes it difficult to write the trackbacks on the front page. Please forgive me for this. I will correct this as soon as possible. I think it is my wrist, because I can move fingers a little but I cannot lift my hand. Hmm. NO, I will not go to the doctor. For what? So he can tell me I have a pinched nerve? Well…duh. lol.

I have no idea why I cannot use my left hand. It won’t work (no pun intended. You know, left+work=welfare. I guess ya had be there). That is why I am going to direct you to my hero’s site: “Bill and Bob’s” Excellent Afghan Adventure. He has returned after a mission which took over two months. Please read it, and leave him a comment of comfort. I would love to run all the way over there to comfort him, but somehow I believe I would cause more harm than comfort!

I have two videos of Blackfive today, and I have I from Michael Yon. Sit back and enjoy!

The first one is: Car (bomb) Versus Apache.

Yeah baby!

This one is called Boat Versus Apache.

Was that a missle at the very end when they shut it off? Hmm…

This is from Michael Yon, and it is called the GMA Report (Good Morning America).

It isn’t very long, but I can only imagine how long it must be for our Soldiers. Michael doesn’t pull punches for or against any party. He just covers the news as it is…raw.

I was sent an e-mail that a friend of mine, Jack Lewis, sent to Stop the ACLU. He is a wiz with computer codes and the such, so I am going to use this instead of my own. lol. Enjoy.

Recently, the ACLU set their doomsday clock at six minutes before midnight! Once it reaches the ‘dark hour’ of midnight…we will be slaves to the ominous and evil ‘surveillance society’. This isn’t science fiction. This is typical scare tactics from the ACLU.

They prey upon the paranoid. This is how they get donations to fund their machine. They cry about “American citizens being spied upon” when in fact there is no evidence that anyone has been hurt by the government’s terrorist surviellance program.

While the ACLU cry that they are the guardian’s of liberty, and that privacy is one of those liberties….they have been exposed as being violators of that very liberty. They have a massive database of their own member’s private financial information they use for soliciting donations.

The group’s new data collection practices were implemented without the board’s approval or knowledge and were in violation of the ACLU’s privacy policy at the time, according to Michael Meyers, vice president of the organization and a frequent internal critic. He said he had learned about the new research by accident Nov. 7 during a meeting of the committee that is organizing the group’s Biennial Conference in July.

He objected to the practices, and the next day, the privacy policy on the group’s Web site was changed. “They took out all the language that would show that they were violating their own policy,” Meyers said. “In doing so, they sanctified their procedure while still keeping it secret.”

Now the ACLU are proudly defending Rep. Larry Craig on grounds of privacy. In another recent case they are defending a “pre-operative transsexual” anatomically male’s “right” to use the female public restroom. Terrence Jeffrey calls out the ‘privacy hypocrisy’ on this one.

“The government does not have a constitutionally sufficient justification for making private sex a crime,” said the ACLU. “It follows that an invitation to have private sex is constitutionally protected and may not be made a crime. This is so even where the proposition occurs in a public place, whether in a bar or a restroom.”

But then the ACLU went a step further, arguing that there is not only a right to solicit sex, but also to engage in it, in a public restroom.

“The Minnesota Supreme Court,” said the ACLU, “has already ruled that two men engaged in sexual activity in a department store restroom with the stall door closed had a reasonable expectation of privacy. They were, the Court held, therefore acting in a private, not a public place.”

The conflated logic of the ACLU’s bathroom briefs seems to be that someone entering a public restroom intending to use it for traditional purposes has no protection either from the gender sign posted at the door or from the otherwise vaunted right to privacy. Someone entering a public restroom intending to solicit and engage in sex, on the other hand, is protected by both the First Amendment and the right to privacy.

What else would you expect from a group that embraces an ideology that holds that partially born babies have no right to keep their skulls intact?

Indeed. As my good friend Glib Fortuna puts it:

This about sums up the ACLU’s worldview. To the ACLU, the only “freedom” the ACLU truly believes in is “sexual freedom” and the concomitant “right” of people who choose aberrant sexual behavior to be free of any criticism and free from anyone else exercising common sense (and more threateningly, religious liberty) if it “infringes” on these “rights” recently invented by the ACLU and its partisans.

This was a production of Stop The ACLU Blogburst. If you would like to join us, please email Jay at Jay@stoptheaclu.com or Gribbit at GribbitR@gmail.com. You will be added to our mailing list and blogroll. Over 200 blogs already onboard.

It’s me now. They do a very good job over at Stop the ACLU. You can find out what court cases are pending, when they are coming to a neighborhood near you, what silly little things they’re defending now and what horrific people, such as terrorists, they are trying to give more civil rights than they wish you to have.

I would just like to add one thing. THE GOVERNMENT DID NOT GIVE US OUR RIGHTS. GOD DID. For if the government had indeed given us our rights, then they surely could take them away, no?

Have a beautiful day. 😉

I would like to use this post to help more people become aware of the great work they are doing over at Stop the ACLU. If you are not yet a member of Linkfest, it is easy to become a member. Would you like to meet other conservatives? We even a rather friendly liberal who is brave enough to sign up! Kudo’s! We are tired of our posts being buried over at digg and other liberal social stations. Talk about open mindedness? HA! Increase your reading over here at Linkfest. Also, please don’t forget the rules of no porn and to be kind to one another. Thank you.

There is going to be another debate which will be held at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center at the University of Michigan (Dearborn). It will hosted by the Michigan Republican Party. Congressman Duncan Hunter will be participating in this debate. As stated, it will be held on October 9, 2007.

The TV coverage will not be for those of us without cable, but if you do have cable you may watch it on CNBC who will be broadcasting the two-hour debate beginning at 4:00PM. MSNBC will re-broadcast the event at 9:00PM the same evening. I do believe that is Eastern Standard Time, but you may want to check with your TV guide.

Have a great time, and write about it. I wantt to know how it goes. Would someone please keep count of the number of questions Duncan Hunter is allowed to answer without being cut off? He is my nominee, and I am getting tired of everyone else getting all the face time. If only they could hear him, then the party would not need to be so annoyed.

Duncan Hunter is the true conservative on this stage, and he has served his country, our country, not only in the Congress, but also as a Marine and a Ranger. Check him out! His son is also running for Congress: Hunter for Congress. At this moment he is unable to campaign however, because he is in Afghanistan on his third tour of duty! (You may still help his campaign with a donation.) Vote Hunter! (Both ways, both times, and often. lol)

Update: Duncan Hunter was interviewed by The Philadelphia Jewish Voice. It is a good interview. You should read it if you would like make an informed choice. Thank you.

Gratitude abounds

I awake this feeling almost everyday. I’d be lieing if I claimed everyday. Some days I forget or am too wrapped up within myself to see the bigger picture. But for a moment, then I remember, gratefully. I am alive, I live in the greatest nation ever on the planet earth, I can walk, I can talk, I can breathe on my own, I can laugh, I can create, I can write. All of these things I can do at my will without fear of repercussion.

We may be only 4% of the world’s population, but we are the wealthiest in spirit, wealthiest in materialistic ways, wealthiest in choices and wealthiest by the grace of God. Had He not had His Gracious hand over us, we would have surely met disaster many times over.

So why is it that people would like to make this a muslim nation when each and every muslim nation is horrendous? Why would they desire we forget about our Creator? Could it be because they do not like what is right and love what is evil? Could it be possible that it has been so long that they do not know the difference?

Aha! But I say, “NO!” Why? Because the Bible says no. In Romans 1:18-32, (all bolding is mine)

God’s Wrath Against Mankind
18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–His eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

21For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images that were made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen.

26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Wow. That’s a mouthful, eh? Have I ever done any of these things? Yes. Do I struggle at times still? Yes. But I know that there is One who Save me from death’s grip, and that is Jesus Christ, my LORD and Savior.

Remember as a child how we used to push our parents to find out where the bounderies were? Well, at the time we may not have known that’s what we were doing, but we all did it. That is because every creature, every human being, needs direction, guidance, love, discipline and correction.

That is why I am so grateful that I can practice my faith as a Christian in this country, no matter whether you like it or not.

Back to those verses, though. They say very much and give so much insight to the many seemingly unanswered questions we have of God. The answers can be found in this Bible and in these verses. Why does evil happen? Because we have turned away from God, we have told Him He is no longer needed in our schools, and His Ten Commandments? Why that’s illegal! Poppy-cock! You may sit down for this and allow it to happen, but I will not.

It is necessary for us to fight the American-Communist-Legal-Union (ACLU) with everything we have. The truth is on our side, and if we don’t, then who will? Could you please answer me that? We fought the godless communists, only to find them in our schools teaching our children and throwing out God! HOW DARE THEY! They were able to do this because we were asleep. Also, we did not know our own Constitution! They knew it better than we did.

Well my dear readers, it is time we educated ourselves. They have infested our Churches to the point where no one even speaks about Hell or fire and brimstone! Are you okay with that? This is not a church. It is a place where people gather to pretend they are christians. If you attend such a Church, I recommend you quickly find one that knows the Word of God and teaches it to everyone. We are all His disciples, not just the Pastor. Do not leave all the work up to him. You have your own Cross to bear.

Excuse me, I get upset when I consider the state of affairs of my beloved country and the world. But the reason I am so grateful?

The LORD Appears to Solomon: 2Chronicles 7:11-22.
11When Solomon had finished the temple of the LORD and the royal palace, and succeeded in carrying out all he had in mind to do in the temple of the LORD and in his own palace, 12the LORD appeared to him at night and said:

    “I have heard your prayer and have this place for Myself as a temple for sacrifices.”

    13“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among My people, 14if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that My Name may be there forever. My eyes and My heart will always be there.”

    17As for you, if you walk before Me as David your father did, and do all I command, and observe My decrees and laws, 18I will establish your royal throne, as I covenanted with David your father when I said, ‘You shall never fail to have a man to rule over Israel.'”

    19But if you turn away and forsake the decrees and commands I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them, 20then I will uproot Israel from My land, which I have given them, and I will reject this temple I have consecrated for My Name. I will make it a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. 21And though this temple is now so imposing, all who pass by will be appalled and say, ‘Why has the LORD done such a thing to this land and to this temple?’ 22People will answer, ‘Because they have forsaken the LORD, the God of their fathers, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshipping and serving them–that is why He brought all this disaster on them.'”

Wow. It is absolutely amazing how we can search for answers in the Bible and go to two entirely different books, the first being the New Testament-the latter being the Old Testament, and we come right back to the righteousness of the LORD. I was seeking the prayer in which God promises to heal our land, but I do not like to take verses out of context. That is why they are so long. In case you were wondering. lol.

Yes, this is my great hope. That we would all repent of our sins, turn from our wicked way, and seek the LORD with all of our heart, our mind, our soul and our strength. Day and night. Do you need a reason to pray? Pray for our men and women in uniform who are keeping you free. Show them your gratitude, although they may never know it. God will know it, and He will account to you. Pray for the sick, the elderly, the lost. There are so many things about which you could pray!

The most important prayer of all, though, is the prayer you pray when you make the decision to ask the LORD Jesus to come into your heart and forgive your sins. Yes, it is by far the most important. That does not mean the others do not count, they do! We are just talking, you and me, about which is the most important.

If your Church no longer asks people if they are Christians, then it is not a Christian Church. RUN out of there. Just because the building claims to be a Church, does not make it so. Please, come with me. We can have Bible study over the net! It is better than worshipping other gods. No, you do not have to be a Christian to join a fellowship, but you must abide by the Christian commandments. They are the same as the Jewish commandments.

I am grateful that the LORD has taken my place and freed me from my sin. I am grateful for His direction. He leads me away from evil. I love Him, and I am very grateful that He loves me. God bless you all. Have a wonderfully blessed day.
