Terrror in India Reminds Us War is Far From Over

The recent attacks in Mumbai, India stand as a reminder to the world why we are fighting a war on terror.

American support has waned dramatically in recent months and years and the issue was a hot-button campaign topic this past year. However, America must continue to be a global leader in the fight against terrorism. Though many point to miscues and mistakes in Iraq as a reason to remove American troops from the middle-eastern theater, we encourage President-Elect Obama to fulfill his promise of continuing the battle the evil that exists throughout the world.

All around the globe, there exist radical sects of Muslim Extremists who threaten democracy, freedom and liberty. Mr. Obama has pledged to commit resources into Afghanistan and to hold the Pakistani government accountable to counter terrorism efforts.

However, the attacks in India have distinct ties to al-Qaeda. An unfamiliar group claimed responsibility but the attacks have distinct markings of Kashmiri-based Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET). Reports have linked both al-Qaeda as well as Pakistan's spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence to LET.

Initially, Pakistan was to send its ISI chief to India to share intelligence, but President Asif Ali Zardari succumbed to internal pressure and sent a lower representative instead.

The facts are quite frightening. The connection between Pakistan, al-Qaeda and Muslim Extremists is quite obvious to us. Further, the devastation and tragedy in Mumbai were sophisticated and organized yet went undetected as a result of the relative simplicity.

It should serve as a reminder to Americans that we cannot afford to become complacent in our views of the war on terror. It is a reality that radicals around the world are hoping to destroy our way of life. We cannot afford to destroy ourselves from within and attack the integrity and motivation of our leaders with respect to the safety of Americans. Ideological differences are encouraged by our Constitution, but we must forever respect the offices of our leaders and abstain from personal attacks.

Again, we implore Mr. Obama to continue to pro-actively combat these savages and protect Americans and our interests around the world.

Susan Rice Likely to Take UN Ambassador Job Under Obama

Susan Rice, a long-time foreign policy advisor is expected to be named United States Ambassador to the United Nations.

Her distinguished resume include:

  • Advisor to Michael Dukakis during the 1988 presidential race.
  • National Security Council under Bill Clinton
  • Assistant Secretary of State under Bill Clinton
  • Long-time friend and mentor of Bill Clinton's Secretary of State Madeline Albright

Ms. Rice is experienced and qualified for the position and it looks like Bill Clinton has his fingerprints on another one.

We admire President-Elect Obama's desire to hire those with a wealth of Washington Insider experience, but we are still wondering about this Change Nonsense.

Here is Dr. Rice in September giving us Obama's foreign policy in a nutshell. You decide.

Iran: Suspension of Nuclear Enrichment "Not in Our Vocabulary"

Iran officials announced Wednesday that they not only tested a long-range missile system, but will continue its nuclear enrichment despite the wishes of IAEA and Western leaders.

We hope President-Elect Obama has learned not to meet with Iran "without precondition." This is becoming an increasingly dangerous threat to Israel and the Middle East.

We want to know what you think!

(No) Change Still: Secretary Gates to Stay Atop The Pentagon

It's been reported that President-Elect Obama with keep current Defense Secretary Robert Gates for at least a year.

Obama and the Democrats criticized the Bush Administration for its mishandling of foreign policy and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

How can Obama keep the man in charge of the department which was so heavily attacked and used as a major campaign tactic? Can anyone explain this nonsense?

America, once again, you have been deceived.

We Need More Than a Band-Aid!

Congress has promised to have a $700 billion economic stimulus bill on President-Elect Obama's desk hours after his January 20th inauguration. This is only continuing the Band-Aid Economic Policy of the Democrats and Mr. Obama.

Republicans want to eliminate capital gains taxes, lower corporate taxes and pass the American Energy Act which is designed to boost all stages of domestic energy production. This will help create jobs and boost the economy; not a meaningless handout which is politically expedient.

Democrats, in order to pay for their Christmas wish-list, will need to raise taxes somehow, someway to pay for their plans. They won't tell us that, but it's a must. Mr. Obama, who said Americans would get tax cuts, has yet to definitively comment on his plans for taxes. The man has proven in his past, and continues to show that he is afraid to make a decision on anything. Look at his voting record; there isn't much of one.

It's becoming more clear everyday that he is an image and a deity more than a leader and visionary.

Admittedly, Secretary Paulson and to some extent President Bush began this mess by advocating for the original $700 billion stimulus package in September but we have already learned that this is not working. And this is yet another example why Neo-Conservatism must be squashed.

This weekend Senator Schumer added at least this amount would be needed to "fix" the country's economic woes in other industries.

This is not free-market, capitalism! Have we reached that point? Do we need the government to bail out every failing company? It's economics 101 folks! This does not work and when it does it's communism and socialism -- the re-distribution of wealth as Obama promised.

Government cannot and should not stick its nose into American business and American pockets. Regulation, CAFE standards, Card Check Union voting policy all have led to the economic slow-down we now face. Chris Dodd and Barney Frank allowed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to give people more than they could afford. This is the problem. Not President Bush.

Let's not forget how the government works. Congress DOES share responsibility. The Democrats HAVE been in charge for some time now.

2010 begins yesterday! Take back Congress before it's too late!

Attorney General Nominee: Involved in Pardon of Convicted Weather Underground Members

It's becoming more clear each day that over 60 Million American voters were deceived by President-Elect Obama. Eric Holder, former Deputy Attorney General under Bill Clinton and Obama's top choice to head the Justice Department in his cabinet certainly has built up quite an impressive resume. (See No Change Agent Post Below)

Not only was Holder involved in the pardon of convicted felon and communist sympathiser Marc Rich, but he was also involved in pardons of convicted felons Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans.

Both Rosenberg and Evans were former members of Bill Ayers' Weather Underground. Both were convicted of bombing the US Capitol, weapons and explosives charges and harboring known felons. The list is far too extensive to list here. Click on title to view the complete list.

We now see the unwrapping of the Obama-Clinton-Radical Leftist-Anti-American belief system. The mainstream media is in the tank for both families. America is disappearing before our eyes.

I hope America is ready to defend its democracy. Please continue your vigilance on Mr. Obama, The Clinton Machine and Radical Socialism on the horizon.

Please post comments! We need to build our grass roots conservatism brick by brick! Companies need to stop seeking handouts and figure out their mis-management themselves!

These are FACTS about Eric Holder and Barack Obama and The Clintons! Do your research! We can no longer afford to be blinded by the truth! Do they really support terrorism?

Coming soon: United Auto Workers and Unions in the tank for the Liberals and destroying American business.
