Democrats, God, and Jerusalem, by Thomas Sowell.

Who would have thought that God and Jerusalem would become controversial issues at this year’s Democratic National Convention?…

…A nuclear Iran can do a lot more damage to Israel than the Japanese did to the United States. Moreover, it is well on its way to being able to produce more than the two bombs that were enough to force Japan to surrender in 1945.

Israel is in a desperate situation — and there is no way that Barack Obama does not know that…

Barack Obama: National Security Disaster by Trevor Loudon

Frank Gaffney of the center for Security Policy, explains the real problem with Obama – he is a national security disaster.

More than that Obama is an international security disaster. If Obama gets four more years he will destroy America’s ability, not only to defend its allies, but to even defend the homeland. His apparent preference for Russia, China, Venezuela, Iran and Islam, over America’s traditional allies is already causing massive concern around the globe.

Jane was murdered by Muslims eleven years ago today.  Along with thousands of others in Islam’s never-ending war against those who don’t submit…

Nation Pauses to Reflect on September 11 — Progressives Mount Pathetic Political Attacks on Bush Administration

Obama Drafts Cybersecurity Executive Order at The Huffington Post.

Despite repeated warnings about the national security threats posed by hackers, Congress failed to pass legislation this summer to protect vital computer networks from a cyberattack.

Now, President Obama is considering taking measures of his own.

The Obama administration has been circulating an executive order that would bypass Congress to accomplish the president’s goals of securing the country from the risk of a computer-based attack.

Experts have warned that critical infrastructure — the power grid, gas pipelines and water supply and transportation systems — are increasingly vulnerable to a cyberattack that could lead to severe economic loss, sustained blackouts or mass casualties…

Did you know Australia has a Tea Party? They have a Facebook page and we would urge you to subscribe–they are a wonderfully outspoken, freedom-loving group! Earlier this evening they posted this by Oz Central–The World’s Photos on Facebook:

Today’s featured picture is of the United States as seen from space. The United States has had many firsts space and of course back on Earth. Something as tragic as September 11 won’t stop the indomitable spirit the United States so proudly has.

The symbol of the spirit of free people who won’t be made to submit to terror or give up their way of life. The new One World Trade Center rising on the site of the former one.


There are those in our country who want you to believe we are universally despised. People like the Australian Tea Party can show you another view.

And, to close this day of chaos and remembrance, we like to include a tribute to the Dog Heroes of September 11th as we honor and thank them and all first responders.
