While Michelle 0bama frolicked and shopped in Marbella, Spain
with 40 friends, 60 rooms @ $2,500 per room, per day,
spending YOUR tax $'s on "fluff". . .at the SAME time. . .

Glenn Beck never made mention at all of the excesses of Michelle or the trips the family takes on our dime. What he would be worried about would be the children of these 12 heros.

The Restoring Honor Rally

I missed getting Miss King's picture in the order of presentation. My computer does not allow me to move them once they have been entered. I do not want to erase everything and start over. All I can say, she is a very brave woman to stand up to the wrath of her family to be here on this day.
Jesse and I arrived at the Lincoln Memorial at 6:30 AM to this crowd. We learned people spent the night here. The park police would not allow anyone to sleep. You had to be sitting up and awake all of the time as camping on the grounds is not permitted.
Both of these shots were also taken at 6:30 AM

Jesse wanted a souvenir of the Rally so he purchased this flag. Not thinking that he could not take the pole with him on the plane.
One of these two gentlemen had fingernail clippers with them and was able to cut the zip ties that were holding the flag to the stick. They then took the time to fold it for Jesse. In return they took the pole to use as a walking stick.

Sarah Palin!! What a woman! Say what they want to say about her, she has it all! She spoke as the mother of a Combat Veteran. You remember, this was a Rally whose purpose was to Restore Honor to our Service men. I felt fortunate to be close enough to see without having to watch the entire rally on the big screen.
Jesse and his Gramma.
Glenn Beck. Before I left for this rally, I was seeing things being posted by Christians that we Christians should not attend because of Glen's religion. We should not be unequally yoked and we should not stand before our God with a Mormon. That God would not hear our prayers because Mormons are not true Christians. It is amazing to me how the enemy works to divide and conquer. I know that my God heard my prayer that day. I know he heard many prayers that day. I know that Glenn has a passion to save our country from sheer ruin and he is willing to put his life on the line to do so. He also has a passion for the wounded veterans. Like Sean Hannity he has taken on an organization that helps children of our fallen hero's attend college. There was a collection taken for the SWOF during the rally. I have not heard the official count of how much was given, but I guarantee it was much. We were able to text a number on our cell phone to donate.
There were over 200 men and women of the cloth who stood before us and pledged to fight for our country. They were dubbed the Black Robe Brigade.
1000, 87,000, just a couple of the numbers I picked up from the web. I think not. I would say we topped 700,000. There was not a hotel room available in the entire city. I heard of people sharing their rooms with strangers just so they would have a place to stay. I was contacted by someone asking if I would share with them, but since I had my grandson along, I did not feel it was prudent to do so.
Leaving the park after the rally. I stayed until the park had cleared because I have a difficult time walking and did not want to be jostled by the crowd.
The park after the crowds had cleared. It had not been cleaned by anyone yet. Contrast to anything left in former Liberal gatherings.
THANK YOU GLENN for an amazing uplifting day with people from across the nation who are of a like mind.

Does anyone know how to cancel a bid on eBay?

I put in a bid for a “Mickey Mouse Outfit” and now it seems I'm only six minutes away from owning Obama’s entire Cabinet.

It is really interesting

to me that in the face of all of the arguing about the mosque. All of the attempts to make those of us who oppose it, based on the location, and the location only, that there has not been a single word mentioned about the Greek Orthodox church that WAS destroyed when the twin towers fell.
The Greek Orthodox church that in 10 years has been unable to get the proper permits to rebuild on land they owned before we were attacked. On land they have occupied for generations. One reason they have not been given a permit, it is too tall. Hmmmm, isn't the mosque 13 stories? When I look at pictures of the destroyed Church, it does not look to me like it even began to occupy the footprint of the mosque. Just what gives here?
It is interesting too, and cannot be mentioned often enough, the muslims have a habit of building on grounds they consider conquered. Just how stupid does Bloomberg and his ilk think we are?

Public Service Announcement #1

I am watching Sean Hannity. Bill Bennett was just on. He was talking about a site called mousemail.com It controls your child's texting. It is programmable to block texts from inappropriate texts. Will also shut down the function while the child is in school. It will, however, allow you to reach your child at any time.

I took my last

post down. Apparently I was so anxious for it to be true that I did not check the facts.
It would have been nice and perhaps some day it will be. Sorry for my haste.

Has anyone heard or read anything about this?

Administration Now Preventing Overseas Soldiers From Voting

From an old Chief M. S.
The Military Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act, Department of Justice

By Lance Thompson Tuesday, August 3, 2010
Lily Tomlin once said about Hollywood, “No matter how cynical you get, you never can keep up.” The same sentiment applies to the current administration. Few of its harshest detractors could even imagine the depths to which this government has stooped to remain in power. Very few would have imagined that the President’s administration would encourage lawbreaking to disenfranchise Americans in uniform. Yet, according to two Department of Justice officials, that is now official policy.

The Military Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act was passed last October to ensure that Americans serving abroad would have their votes counted. Specifically, MOVE requires states to send absentee ballots to citizens serving overseas 45 days before any election. But according to Eric Eversole and J. Christian Adams, two former attorneys for the DOJ’s voting section, Eric Holder’s justice officials are going to great lengths to subvert this law and prevent members of the American military from voting.

Rebecca Wertz, deputy chief of DOJ’s voting section, has met with various state attorneys general to let them know that litigation against states that violate MOVE regulations would be a “last resort” and to suggest that states take advantage of ambiguous language in the MOVE act that allows “waivers” for requirements that produce “undue hardship.” Basically, the DOJ is encouraging states to seek loopholes in the MOVE act and promising not to investigate states that avail themselves of such loopholes.

Additionally, the DOJ web site does not mention the MOVE act, and in fact refers to the previous regulation, now superceded, of a non-binding recommendation to send out absentee ballots a month in advance
. This can only be a deliberate attempt to further subvert the new law.

Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is very selective about the laws it enforces. It does not prosecute New Black Panthers for voter intimidation. And now it encourages states to prevent their citizens serving in the military from voting.

There is only one reason for the DOJ to follow this course. The Obama administration knows it cannot retain its grip on power if a free election is held in November. Only by manipulating the outcome, suppressing the votes of some Americans, and subverting the law do the Democrats have a chance of winning. It is easy to identify the votes Obama and Holder wish to suppress by observing which violators they protect. New Black Panthers brandishing weapons at polling places suppress the white vote. States that avoid, with the endorsement of the Justice Department, the regulations of the MOVE act suppress military voters. Thus, Obama and Holder obviously believe that white voters and military voters are a threat to their power.

Judging from the recent Real Clear Politics average of national polls showing Obama underwater by four points, white voters and military voters aren’t the only ones disenchanted with the Commander in Chief. All citizens must not only assert their right to vote, but protect the rights of those the government seeks to intimidate or suppress. No group deserves this protection more than the men and women who fight and die to give us those rights in the first place.

Great Quote

"As an American I am not so shocked that Obama was given

the Nobel Peace Prize without any accomplishments to his

name, because America gave him the White House based on

the same credentials."
