The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

FLAHR in, the name of a gold coin first made in Florence in the 1200's. The name comes from the Latin word for flower. The florin bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Saint John the Baptist on the other side.

Islam To Become Dominant In America. Says CAIR.

A statement by CAIR's co-founder, Omar Ahmad:
Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

And CAIR's disregard for American freedoms is even less surprising considering that the U.S. Attorney General's Office and the FBI identified it "as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group."
Freedom to offend the delicate sensibilities of Muslim terrorists is not that easy to come by these days. Witness the censorship of a South Park Episode 201 mentioning a certain supposedly forbidden name that, interestingly enough, is found frequently enough in news reports listing the names of terrorists.
As the Law Center pointed out: Americans have a right to know the truth. Islam is a religion of intolerance and violence. [emphasis TMLC]

If you mention that view out loud, though, you won't be allowed to speak at a National Day of Prayer event at the Pentagon. In which case, you will be in good company, such as that of Reverend Franklin Graham, son of Evangelist Billy Graham, the spiritual advisor of many U.S. Presidents. One of Franklin Graham's "offensive" statements:
When you look at what the religion does to women and women alone, it is just horrid. So I speak out for women, I speak out for people who live under Islam who are enslaved under Islam and want them to know that they can be free.
Attorney David Yerushalmi, a Sharia law expert, joined forces with Robert Muise of the Thomas More Law Center to defend the First Amendment rights of two Americans to purchase bus ads that offer help to refugees from Islam. According to the Law Center:
It was the first time help was publicly offered to people threatened under Islam’s death penalty for leaving Islam. The ads on Miami-Dade buses stated, “Fatwa on your head?  Is your family or community threatening you?  Leaving Islam?  Got questions?  Get Answers!”
The ten ads, which covered the sides of buses in Miami, were removed within hours of a complaint by CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) that "the ads were 'offensive to Muslims'" and promoted "bigotry." The ads had been contracted from Miami-Dade County Transit Authority and paid for by compassionate, courageous patriot-bloggers, The Freedom Defense Initiative and SIOA. .
Quick action by the law offices changed minds at the Transit Authority, which quickly reinstituted the original ten ads and then threw in twenty more.
Richard Thompson, President of the Law Center, pointed out:
It’s a bitter irony that American blood is being shed in Iraq and Afghanistan to defend their Islamic Constitutions, while Islamic organizations right here in America are attempting to squelch the constitutional rights to Free Speech of American citizens.

Fascism, Dhimmitude--Health Care Bill =Sharia Law. Tax The Christians And Jews. Exempt The Muslims. Has Congress Engaged In The Most Peacful Surrender In History?

FASH izm,
 is a form of government which centers all power in a single party headed by an absolute dictater. 
  • Under fascism, the government rigidly controls the religious, political, social and economic life of the country. Private ownership is permitted, but both labor and management lose their freedom.
  • The police state is used to crush opposition or dissent. Secret police spy on the whole population, and remarks against the leaders leads to swift and severe punishment. Opposition parties are dissolved.
Extreme Nationalism
  • Fascism is highly nationalistic. It tries to identify its principles with the country, so that disagreement will look like treason. Some other country, or some other group within the country, is usually picked out to serve as "the enemy" and made to appear as the cause of all evils or misfortunes. Sometimes it combines racial and religious bigotry.
  • To work well, fascism needs the sincere consent of a large part of the population. To maintain this consent, the fascist must cut off the people from any information which might cause them to doubt the complete truth of fascist principals. Newspapers, radio, television, and other means of communication must be censored so the public will get only those facts the leaders want known. Freedom of speech and assembly must be suppressed.
  • They subjected the working classes to a rigorous discipline.
  • They began to limit profit, impose capital leves, and regulate business in great detail.
 Fascism maintains among the people a permanently war like frame of mind. Every citizen feels that he is mobilized against enemies of the leaders within, and against possible foreign foes. A leader usually comes to power during a period of economic crisis or depression. Near-Fascist claim to be a democracy, but with fascist traits, including the police state, militarism, and Extreme Nationalism.

is a neologism first found in French denoting an attitude of concession, surrender and appeasement towards Islamic demands. It is derived by adding the productive suffix -tude to the Arabic language adjective dhimmi, which literally means protected and refers to a non-Muslim subject of a sharia law state.

The term was coined in 1982 by the Lebanese president and Maronite militia leader Bachir Gemayel, in reference to perceived attempts by the country's Muslim leadership to subordinate the large Lebanese Christian minority. In a speech of September 14, 1982 given at Dayr al-Salib in Lebanon, he said: "Lebanon is our homeland and will remain a homeland for Christians… We want to continue to christen, to celebrate our rites and traditions, our faith and our creed whenever we wish… Henceforth, we refuse to live in any dhimmitude!" 

Robert Spencer author of the The Myth of Islamic Tolerance defines dhimmitude as:
  • Dhimmitude is the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims, primarily Jews and Christians. Dhimmis, “protected” or “guilty” people, are free to practice their religion in a Sharia regime, but are made subject to a number of humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Qur'an's command that they "feel themselves subdued" (Sura 9:29). This denial of equality of rights and dignity remains part of the Sharia, and, as such, are part of the legal superstructure that global jihadists are laboring through violence to restore everywhere in the Islamic world, and wish ultimately to impose on the entire human race.

Rep. (D) Sheila Jackson Lee, HISD Superintendent Terry Grier, Square Off Over Investigation Of Rep. Lee's Friend

Rick Casey, a reporter for the Houston Chronicle maybe receiving a phone call from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee.
Terry Grier received a phone call from Rep.(D)Sheila Jackson Lee, double teaming with HISD Trustee Carol Sims Galloway and a minister. Galloway left the line early, and State Rep. Harold Dutton joined the call toward the end.
You see, Rick Casey is breaking from the ranks of the Rag of a Paper that claims to be a News Paper. Maybe to drum up some more subscribers, to drum up some more Advertisers, or because it is a story that cannot go untold.
The phone call from Congresswoman Jackson Lee, and others, was to HISD Superintendent Terry Grier; threatening, demanding, and outright intimidating Mr. Grier; 4 months on the job as the leader of one of the nation's largest and most complex school districts.
He told the callers that he wouldn't discuss personnel issues over the phone. Way to go Super Grier!
Being on a break retreat with his wife; and being hammered with a call like this is unconscionable. A Christmas Break. The call was 2 days before Christmas.
The call was about an investigation into some very bad things that has been taking place with 2, 2 mind you, schools. Maybe more bad things-lets see what turns up shall we?
No way, says, Rep.(D) Sheila Jackson Lee; stop the investigation now! She is accusing investigators of using “racist” methods in interviewing staff members.
An outside law firm is investigating activities at Key Middle School, and Kashmere High School.
Administrator Mable Caleb had been principal at Key Middle School, and a controversy resulted in a promotion to principal at Kashmer High School. Wow how did that happen?
The predecessor of Grier tried to fire Mable Caleb 5 yrs. ago. But a Board vote of 4-3 overruled him. Rep.(D)Sheila Jackson Lee involved, Hummm.
The current investigative report charged that equipment and money from student fees were missing at the schools, and there was strong evidence of cheating on TAKS tests.
In addition, the report accused Caleb of improperly employing her son and her niece at the school.
Caleb denied the charges and accused Grier of ordering the investigation for being slighted, because he blamed her for being criticized by State Rep. Dutton and others at a public meeting. Just 4 months on the job and already being Bullied by Rep. (D) Sheila Jackson Lee and cohorts.
Rick Casey said, a conversation with State Rep. Dutton; Dutton defended Caleb at length, saying he also believed Greer had acted out of ruffled pride.
Grier says the investigation came out of an anonymous letter.
The predecessor of Grier tried to fire Mable Caleb 5 yrs. ago. But a Board vote of 4-3 to overrule him suggests that her friends were more successful than they were this time. Yea, Rep. (D) Sheila Jackson Lee is trying to stop another investigation of her friend Caleb.
According to a memo Grier sent his board members shortly after the call, Rep. Lee demanded that he shut down the investigation, accusing investigators of using “racist” methods in interviewing staff members.
He said Lee and the minister also indicated that they wanted to be involved in the selection of new administrators overseeing schools in the region that includes Key and Kashmere.
And they wanted him to replace the new principal he had named to Key with Bernett Harris, a Caleb protege who had been Key's interim principal.

Grier did not shut down the investigation. 

Bulling, Unethical, not Caring about the Constitution, DemocRats Shall be Removed from Office this November!
