Obama and Axelrod Tweet During the Transfer of Remains Ceremony

By Greg Pollowitz
September 14, 2012 3:46 P.M.

This is just unbelievable, especially in light of the Defcon 1 attack the MSM put on Romney for responding to a tweet from the US Embassy in Cairo without waiting some unspecified period of time. Will those same MSM bobble-head dolls criticize the president and his most trusted adviser for tweeting during a funeral?

Here’s the first one from the president’s account, not from him personally:


Look at the time-stamp. This is literally in the middle of the ceremony. Buy a sweatshirt! The Arab Spring is now the Arab Winter! Brrrrr!!!

But not to be undone, David Axelrod also couldn’t wait to speak up:


At least Axelrod waited for the ceremony to end — by about 4 minutes, according to when Mark Knoller’s tweeted the doors to the hearses closing:


Hat-tip to @cuffymeh for catching this.

 

A Proper Burial

Barbara

Warning: Graphics are disturbing and not suitable for everyone- BJ inserted them!

Prayer said over Osama Bin Laden’s dead body.

O Allah, forgive our living and our dead, those who are present among us and those who are absent, our young and our old, our males and our females. O Allah, whoever You keep alive, keep him alive in Islam, and whoever You cause to die, cause him to die with faith. O Allah, forgive him and have mercy on him, keep him safe and sound and forgive him, honor the place where he settles and make his entrance wide; wash him with water and snow and hail, and cleanse him of sin as a white garment is cleansed of dirt. O Allah, give him a house better than his house and a family better than his family. O Allah, admit him to Paradise and protect him from the torment of the grave and the torment of Hell-fire; make his grave spacious and fill it with light. O Allah, do not deprive us of the reward and do not cause us to go astray after this.

Osama Bin Laden has been given a proper Muslim burial, he was anointed and wrapped in white and the prayer to Allah was said over his body before being buried at sea all within the proper Muslim burial time of 10 hours.

BUT

Was there anointing of oils, forgiveness of sins, prayers to God, Buddha, Jehovah, final blessings and proper religious burials for the 911 victims of his religious Jihad? He was properly buried within 10 hours and those he murdered have not been properly buried in 10 years.

Mr. President, I would like you to think about that when you campaign at Ground Zero on Thursday. When you stand not at a watery grave but at a grave made of rubble in the heart of a city that knows Osama Bin Laden did not deserve the respect you afforded him. You did not want to offend Muslims with an improper Muslim burial. What Muslim or any civil person would be offended that a mass murderer did not receive the proper religious burial of their practiced faith?

The “proper Muslim” burial given to mass murderer Osama Bin Laden should deeply offend Muslims. Frankly, those concerned with what they consider to have been an improper Muslim burial for a mass murderer are offensive. Their concern is that Osama was not buried facing Mecca. The concern should be that this terrorist did what he did in the name of Islam. How do defend Islam as a religion of Peace and then embrace the Jihad of Osama Bin Laden?

The faith of Osama Bin Laden was respected to ensure he was properly buried yet that twisted faith of Osama Bin Laden is responsible for the mass graves upon which you will stand asking for the votes of the mothers and fathers and wives and children of those murdered by the man you anointed in the oils of Allah…the last words of those on the civil airplanes that flew into the buildings that once stood proudly above your head were. Allah Akbar. 

Those buried at your feet were not wrapped in fresh white linen they were wrapped in jet fuel and concrete. They were not prayed over they were cursed. Look up to the empty NY sky for proof of that…slowing falling to earth holding the hand of the be damned Infidel. 

Mr. President as you stated “we are not at war with Muslims” but as you stand at the site of Jihad remember the man who received a proper Muslim burial Osama Bin Laden, brought the war to us. 

Mr. President…the martyr was not buried at sea the martyr all 3,000 of them are buried at your feet.

American citizens denied a permit to peacefully protest in AMERICA: are we now bowing to foreign kings and false gods right here on American soil?

Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one. — President Thomas Jefferson

I do not like the burning of the flag, nor the burning of the Bible, Koran or any other religious articles, idols and prophets. I also despise pornography by consenting adults but there is one thing I hate even more and that is loss of my US Constitutional First Amendment rights because of terroristic threats we face from Islamic radical fundamentalists.

Radical Islam kills and beheads innocent people indiscriminately and non radicals Islamic people fail to condemn them but instead rail against those of us who see the burning of the Koran or the characterization of Mohammad as nothing worse than the of burning the bible or effigies and mischaracterizations of our Lord – a shameful disrespect and contempt to be ignored. One lone man occasionally blows up an abortion clinic and one man killed and abortion doctor and no Christian held these people up as martyrs they were held accountable under the law.

Islam has no respect for human life, if it had, it would call out murder over and above the burning of paper regardless of the words imprinted on that paper. If they cannot- their Koran and Mosques and their radicals do not belong in America where we value life over images and holy books and buildings. Here, where we are loathe to be prevented from free speech for fear an innocent will be murdered in retribution for the words or actions of another we have no control over under our Constitution.

When we, the people of the United States have to fear a radical people who condemn and shame all of us for the actions of one and yet we are admonished for condemning any of them for the actions of scores of their radicals who they continually fail to condemn—we have to question the common sense of that behavior on our part. It is not common sense and it gives license to those using this tactic to continue to make fools of us. This is a two way street! Apparently these folks have more rights to demonstrate in their streets like wild animals than we do to peacefully demonstate in ours!

KABUL — At least 12 people were killed in Afghanistan Friday, most of them foreigners, when a United Nations compound was stormed by Afghans enraged by a Florida pastor’s burning of a Koran, according to Afghan officials.

Eight foreigners were killed after demonstrators protesting a reported burning of the Muslim holy book stormed a United Nations office in northern Afghanistan, opening fire on guards and setting fires inside the compound, officials said.

Thousands of protesters mobilized after a midday sermon, then surged toward the offices of the United Nations in Mazar-e Sharif, northern Afghanistan’s largest city and normally a bastion of calm.

Some in the crowd broke into the U.N. office and attacked the staff, killing security guards and members of the U.N. mission, officials said.

For example One pastor burns a Koran and all of Islam demands an apology from our entire country and Obama gives it while radicals retaliate by killing 11 innocents, beheading 2, and we do not demand nor do we receive willingly, any apology from Islam? Instead this pastor is now denied a permit to hold a protest outside a mosque?

An American Citizen denied a permit to peacefully protest in AMERICA? Denied for public safety? We are held hostage to a people who cannot be trusted in America to act like AMERICANS? Indeed- are we now bowing to foreign kings and false gods right here on American soil? Jones and others have NO PLANS to burn a Koran – they are planning to peacefully demonstrate as is their right to do. I wish I could join them. We must not give up our rights to a foreign radical people under any circumstance.

Dearborn — Dearborn denied a permit Wednesday for Quran-burning Pastor Terry Jones’ planned protest outside the Islamic Center of America on Good Friday.

Jones could be arrested if he goes ahead with the protest outside the mosque without a permit, said city spokeswoman Mary Laundroche. She added that the permit had been denied for “public safety reasons.”

Jones said he had not received notification that the permit had been turned down but that he was undeterred.

Jones is due in 19th District Court in Dearborn on Thursday to answer prosecutors’ claims that his demonstration could cause a riot and demands he post a “peace bond” to cover police costs.

Dearborn officials said Jones can still demonstrate at one of two “free speech zones,” including City Hall. Before denying the permit, city officials expressed concern about public safety, traffic and disruptions to nearby churches.

Jones isn’t likely to relent. He’s said for weeks that he plans to demonstrate outside the Ford Road mosque with or without a permit. Earlier today, Jones said the mosque is the ideal site for his protest against “radical Islam” and Sharia, or Islamic, law.

“There is no place better than there to present this message,” said Jones, the pastor of the Dove World Outreach center in Gainesville, Fla.

Jones said he is planning to bring a pistol to protect himself in case of violence, but has no plans to burn an Islamic holy book.

“We are coming there totally in peace,” said Jones, who said he will be joined by several other people including a rabbi.

Earlier today, Dearborn Mayor John B. O’Reilly Jr. released a copy of an “open letter” he wrote to Jones in a last-ditch effort to persuade him to cancel his protest.

In the three-page letter released to the media, O’Reilly urged Jones to conduct his demonstration at one of the city’s “free speech zones.” O’Reilly also questioned the logic of protesting Sharia in Dearborn.

“Our commitment to the Constitution is unwavering, not merely convenient, which makes your hyperbole about Sharia Law being practiced in the courts or civil law of Dearborn nonsensical,” O’Reilly wrote. “So, you are coming to protest against an imaginary threat that doesn’t exist in our community. Not in our courts, not at our City Hall, not on our streets and not in any of our places of worship.”

The mayor also pointed out to Jones that several churches in the vicinity of the mosque will be conducting Good Friday services and Jones’ protest outside the mosque will be disruptive to their traffic as well.

“The members of the Christian churches on Altar Road asked me last week if they should cancel their Good Friday services because of your planned visit. I assured them that they should not because the Constitution does not allow you to violate their rights. I don’t know why you selected Good Friday but it wasn’t very considerate of the significant Christian services being held at that time. I assure you that you will not make them forfeit their services,” O’Reilly wrote.

From The Detroit News: ttp://detnews.com/article/20110420/METRO01/104200413/Dearborn-denies-permit–says-Quran-burning-minister-could-face-arrest#ixzz1K7UQwxks 

The idea of a right to freedom of expression, started with John Milton (1608–74), then John Locke (1632–1704) and culminating in John Stuart Mill (1806–1873). Locke established the individual as the unit of value and the bearer of rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness. It was the role of Government to protect these rights and this belief was first enshrined in the US Constitution, with the First Amendment adding the guarantee that “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press”. John Stuart Mill argued that human freedom is good and without it there can be no progress in science, law or politics, which according to Mill required free discussion of opinion. Mill’s On Liberty, published in 1859 became a classic defense of the right to freedom of expression. Mill argued that truth drives out falsity, therefore the free expression of ideas, true or false, should not be feared. Truth is not stable or fixed, but evolves with time. Mill argued that much of what we once considered true has turned out false. Therefore views should not be prohibited for their apparent falsity. Mill also argued that free discussion is necessary to prevent the “deep slumber of a decided opinion”. Discussion would drive the onwards march of truth and by considering false views the basis of true views could be re-affirmed.

In Evelyn Beatrice Hall’s biography of Voltaire, she coined the following phrase to illustrate Voltaire’s beliefs: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Hall’s quote is frequently cited to describe the principle of freedom of speech. In the 20th Century Noam Chomsky states that: “If you believe in freedom of speech, you believe in freedom of speech for views you don’t like.

Aisha’s Afghani butcher arrested

Contributed by: It’s Me Louise

The father-in-law, Haji Suleman, of a 18 year old Afghan woman who said her nose and ears were sliced off to punish her for running away from her violent husband has been arrested, the Afghan Interior Ministry said Wednesday. Aisha said she ran away to escape her in-laws’ beatings and abuse.

Under orders from a Taliban commander acting as a judge, she was disfigured last year as punishment for fleeing her husband’s home, according to Time’s story in August and other accounts.

When Aisha, appeared on the Aug. 9 cover of Time magazine, the world was outraged and she became the face of Islamic domestic violence against women under Sharia Law. According to the NY Times Afghan police unable to get to the remote village, carried out the arrest when the suspect visited a bazaar.

“It would have taken 100 armored vehicles to go in there to that village,” the district police chief, Mohammed Gul, said according to the Times.

It is not clear if he has been formally charged but he was being held in jail in Uruzgan province. Suleman said he was “innocent” making the following statement ,

 

“Aisha’s father is accusing me,” he added. “He had proposed to me to kill her because she had brought shame on him after she fled her house.”

Aisha’s father, who was identified only as Mohammadzai, wants his daughter returned.

“She has been kidnapped by foreigners from my house,” … “I want her back.”

Aisha was sent to Los Angeles over the summer for reconstructive surgery. In September, she was fitted with a temporary, prosthetic nose so she could visualize what she would look like and to help build her confidence.

We need to be sure to give Aisha asylum in the United States and she needs time to assimilate into our culture before she ever feel comfortable as a being with the right to be whole. Welcome to America Aisha.

She swung – he didn’t face charges of adultery

By BettyJean Kling

She was forced to confess- then suffered prison for 9 years- today she begged for her life and prayed all the way to the gallows. Rest in Peace Shahla, you are in our thoughts and paryers dear woman!

A woman has been executed for murdering the wife of a well known soccer player, her lawyer has said.

Shahla Jahed was hanged at 0500 local time Wednesday at Tehran’s Evin prison, according to the Irna news agency. The AFP notes that it’s the 146th execution in Iran this year. Jahed had been living with Nasser Mohammadkhani under a temporary marriage. She was found guilty of stabbing to death his first wife, Laleh Saharkhizan, in 2002. After confessing, Jahed later retracted the statement in court and had spent the past nine years in prison, during which time international human rights groups campaigned for her release.

Indeed, Amnesty International made a last-minute appeal, saying Jahed hadn’t received a fair trial, but it was to no avail. Malcolm Smart, Amnesty director for the Middle East and North Africa, said there were “strong grounds to believe that Shahla Jahed did not receive a fair trial, and may have been coerced into making a ‘confession’ during months of detention in solitary confinement.”

As for Mohammadkhani, as the practice of a temporary marriage is permitted under Shia Islam, he didn’t face charges of adultery though he was sentenced to 74 lashes for a separate drug-taking incident. (via BBC)

Profiling isn’t as profitable as the scanning machines

BettyJean Kling

The reason our rights are being violated is because crooked bastards are getting rich off these scanning machines and profiling doesn’t make them any money! Anytime We The People get the shaft and the Criminals, Terrorist, Bad Guys, etc. etc. get off easy it’s because We The People are being sold to the highest bidder. Oh and George Soros is usually somewhere in the mix!

The companies with multimillion-dollar contracts to supply American airports with body-scanning machines more than doubled their spending on lobbying in the past five years and hired several high-profile former government officials to advance their causes in Washington, government records show.

L-3 Communications, which has sold $39.7 million worth of the machines to the federal government, spent $4.3 million trying to influence Congress and federal agencies during the first nine months of this year, up from $2.1 million in 2005, lobbying data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics show. Its lobbyists include Linda Daschle, a former Federal Aviation Administration official.

Daschle, the wife of former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle, lobbied against Chaffetz’s bill. She said bombs represent a real threat. “I don’t think it was Linda Daschle that made the difference” in L-3 Communications’ success, she said. “I think it was people understanding what the threat is and seeing these capable solutions.”

Rapiscan got the other naked-scanner contract from the TSA, worth $173 million. Rapiscan’s lobbyists include Susan Carr, a former senior legislative aide to Rep. David Price, D-N.C., chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee. When Defense Daily reported on Price’s appropriations bill last winter, the publication noted “Price likes the budget for its emphasis on filling gaps in aviation security, in particular the whole body imaging systems.”

Then this morning Carney also noted that former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff was flacking for Rapiscan.

As for the company’s other political connections, it also appears that none other than George Soros, the billionaire funder of the country’s liberal political infrastructure, owns 11,300 shares of OSI Systems Inc., the company that owns Rapiscan. Not surprisingly, OSI’s stock has appreciated considerably over the course of the year. Soros certainly is a savvy investor.

Note that OSI Systems CEO is Deepak Chopra not the guru.
