Daniel Pearl, a Jewish American journalist was savagely and brutally beheaded on video by Khalid Sheik Mohammed and other jihadist Muslims in Karachi on Feb. 1, 2002.
Upon signing the Daniel Pearl Press Freedom Act, President Obama commented on his death in this manner…
“Obviously, the loss of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world’s imagination because it reminded us of how valuable a free press is.”

This just about says it all, eh? I believe this falls under Saul Alinsky’s Tactic #5.
Apparently ACORN is doing some great work in India via the administration’s ambassador and taxpayer $$$. See article here at NewsRealBlog.
Keeping up with all of the events going on in our complicated world is no mean feat. I just can’t do it. I run a small (perhaps wee) business, so my attention and time are taken up looking for “jobs” and creating venues for income. That’s why I haven’t been writing much lately, that, and I have felt less prompting or compunction to do so. The events in our world are coming at us so fast and are fairly much a repeat (in one form or another) day after day, so it can seem to be saying the same thing over and over again, which I leave to the nightly tv commentators. I ‘m glad I don’t have their job.
But what I can’t, won’t, or don’t write in this space, my healthy list of sites on the right sidebar do. I encourage you to check them out. If you are interested in Islamic issues, I have a pretty good list of sites where you can find out just about anything that is going on specifically in our nation . These are good bloggers on my sidebar, so please utilize these resources which are there to help you find information. John at Midknight Review is a retired guy with lots of time on his hands. He does an excellent job of writing and commenting every day about the times we live in. Atlas Shrugs is another blogger who is full time on top of every event that may threaten our country’s freedoms. The Conservative Pup writes regularly and writes wonderful commentary; I appreciate her conservative friendship and viewpoint.
I’ll still be here and post from time to time, but I have definitely been on the slowdown. I do have a post about family that is in the back of my mind to write.
David Horowitz gave a speech at UC San Diego last week to counter the Muslim Students Association’s Israeli Apartheid Week. An MSA member makes a chilling admission. Seeing it brings it all home.
