Flight 93 Memorial Blogburst # 45

Frontpage Magazine covers the memorial debacle

Blogburst logo, petition

FrontPage managing editor Jamie Glazov interviews Alec Rawls in this week’s FrontPage Interview.

Rawls takes the opportunity to lay out the basic facts for a new set of readers:

1. That the giant crescent (originally called the Crescent of Embrace) points to Mecca.

2. That this giant Mecca oriented crescent is STILL THERE in the Circle of Embrace redesign (explicitly described as a broken circle, just as the Crescent of Embrace was).

Punch line:

It’s like gate security catching a terrorist with a bomb and telling him to go back outside and see if he can hide it better the second time. All [architect Paul Murdoch] did was add some completely irrelevant disguise.

Please give FrontPage a visit, and if you haven’t bookmarked them already, the site is well worth your time.

Frontpage founder David Horowitz has been exposing the far left’s takeover of the Democrat mainstream since the 1980’s, and since 2001 has extended his Discover the Networks approach to our Islamofascist enemies. If you are drawn to the sound of the guns, FrontPage is on the frontlines of both the culture-war and terror-war battles for accurate information.

Wednesday’s Hero: Staff Sgt. Andy Pena

Staff Sgt. Andy Pena performs in-flight calibrations on a HH-60 Pave Low while flying Sept. 3 over Ellington Field, Texas. He and members of the 55th Rescue Squadron deployed from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., to Ellington Field in response to Hurricane Gustav with less than 24 hours after notification. Sergeant Pena is an aerial gunner.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Have Every Right To Dream Heroic Dreams. Those Who Say That We’re In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don’t Know Where To Look

Obama’s Big Lies

The Big Lie:

1. a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously”.

2. Just making stuff up.

“But, you know, when you’ve been taking all these earmarks when it’s convenient, and then suddenly you’re the champion anti-earmark person, that’s not change. Come on! I mean, words mean something, you can’t just make stuff up.” — Barack Obama, Sept. 6, 2008

Yes, Obama, words DO mean something, so what does criticizing Sarah Palin’s record on earmarks, when yours have been stratospherically worse, say about your words?

I’ll let Obama’s colleague in the Senate, Jim Demint explain:

Having worked with both John McCain and Mr. Obama on earmarks, and as a recovering earmarker myself, I can tell you that Mrs. Palin’s leadership and record of reform stands well above that of Mr. Obama.

Let’s compare.

Mrs. Palin used her veto pen to slash more local projects than any other governor in the state’s history. She cut nearly 10% of Alaska’s budget this year, saving state residents $268 million. This included vetoing a $30,000 van for Campfire USA and $200,000 for a tennis court irrigation system. She succinctly justified these cuts by saying they were “not a state responsibility.”

Meanwhile in Washington, Mr. Obama voted for numerous wasteful earmarks last year, including: $12 million for bicycle paths, $450,000 for the International Peace Museum, $500,000 for a baseball stadium and $392,000 for a visitor’s center in Louisiana.

Mrs. Palin cut Alaska’s federal earmark requests in half last year, one of the strongest moves against earmarks by any governor. It took real leadership to buck Alaska’s decades-long earmark addiction.

Mr. Obama delivered over $100 million in earmarks to Illinois last year and has requested nearly a billion dollars in pet projects since 2005. His running mate, Joe Biden, is still indulging in earmarks, securing over $90 million worth this year. (read on).

Disgraceful.

There’s really nothing more to say about it, except…why does anyone believe a word that comes out of that man’s mouth at this point?

He promised to fire anyone on his staff caught “spreading rumors” about  Sarah Palin. Did he? No, of course he didn’t. Those were ‘just words’, not to be taken literally or anything. It’s the thought that counts, right?

Oh, and here he is railing against the the “big corporate Lobbyists” in McCains campaign:

So what does Obama staffer, Howard Gutman do when he’s not smearing Sarah Palin?

You guessed it. According to Cuffy Meigs:

  • Only one of 35 bundlers to raise over $500,000 for Obama, on par with Hollywood moguls Daivd Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg
  • Not only a registered lobbyist, but Lobbyist of the Year (2006)
  • Not only Lobbyist of the Year, but he played a lobbyist (himself) on HBO’s K Street
  • Did I mention he likes to lobby?
  • And that Obama does not?
  • The hypocrisy of the man is simply breathtaking.

    Will enough voters wake up, and come to grips with the fact that Obama is not the “good government reformer”, “uniter”, and agent for “change” that he pretends to be? I realize a lot of people are pumped about the historic nature of this election because he would be our first African American President. My hope and prayer is that the ones who are not hopelessly far-left radicalized loons, will finally see Obama for what he is before election day.
