Then for the last couple of days, the "Greek Temple" stage set up for Obama's acceptance speech made quite a buzz over the Internet. Just in case you are a liberal educated in the American public school system here is a little factoid for you: ancient Greeks built those temple to worship their Gods.
But there also is something I noticed tonight during Obama's Speech: above the stadium stood a pale horse and underneath was a giganic projection screen with the video of the Obamessiah.
Book of Revelation, Chapter 6
(Movie trailer available at the bottom of this post)
Do As I Say
- Former vice president Al Gore has won an Academy Award and a Nobel Peace Prize for his crusade against global warming. But while he insists that average Americans must slash their carbon footprint or face a planetary catastrophe, Gore still flies around the world in a private jet—and burns thirty thousand dollars' worth of electricity and natural gas each year in his Nashville mansion.
- Senator Hillary Clinton recently declared war on mortgage lending abuses. But she didn't mention that she and her husband were once involved in a predatory lending scheme that took advantage of teachers, farmers, laborers, and other ordinary Americans, leaving them with no equity and nothing to show for the money they invested. In fact, more than half the people who spent their savings buying land from the Clintons in Whitewater never received a property deed.
-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claims that labor unions are vital to sustaining acceptable wages and working conditions. But her ardent pro-labor stance ends at the gates of her own Napa Valley vineyard. As Investor’s Business Daily reports, the winner of the 2003 César Chávez Legacy Award from the United Farm Workers does not herself employ unionized workers.
- Filmmaker Michael Moore, a self-styled “working-class boy from Flint, Michigan,” claims never to have owned a single share of stock. But don't be fooled by his scruffy jeans and baseball cap. Moore, who lives in a lavish lakeside mansion with Eminem and Kid Rock as neighbors, owns a sizable investment portfolio through his foundation—including stock in Halliburton, Pfizer, Merck, Tenet Healthcare, and other companies he vilifies in his films.
- MIT professor Noam Chomsky is famed for denouncing free markets, private enterprise, and the American government. But he doesn't come cheap—he charges $12,000 each time he speaks. His books berating capitalism have become hot commodities in their own right. And despite his stated opposition to the U.S. military, property rights, and tax havens for the wealthy, Chomsky has turned a tidy profit as a Defense Department consultant, owns two million-dollar homes, and has set up the Diane Chomsky Irrevocable Trust to protect his sizable fortune for his heirs.
These figures and many like them populate Tucker and Abel’s Do As I Say, an eye-opening exposé of the thinly veiled hypocrisy defining some of the leading liberal minds of today. Based on Peter Schweizer’s bestselling book, this funny, fast-paced film reveals how icons of the left have fully embraced capitalist ideals while simultaneously discouraging others from doing the same.
To make the film, Tucker and Abel drove across the country on a quest for hypocrites in socialist clothing. An intrepid two-man investigative team, they went undercover at Nancy Pelosi’s vineyards to see if the House’s decorated labor advocate is the sort of employer she advises others to be. They traveled to Michigan to confront Michael Moore about his Halliburton and Honeywell stock. They talked politics with college students at UC Berkeley, visited Arkansas to reconstruct the Clintons’ shady real-estate dealings, and searched for the Pentagon employee who signed Noam Chomsky’s paychecks. Living lean on a shoestring budget, single-mindedly hunting for answers, Tucker and Abel took their camera where no hypocrite wants it to go.
The results are enough to compel millions to choose between their ideals and their leaders. Because if there is one thing Americans can’t abide, it’s a hypocrite.

Saleman Abdirahman Dirie from Ottawa (in this country illegally) was found dead in a hotel room in Denver with a pound of pure cyanide. This is a huge story. So frightening and the liberal media is ignoring it.
Read Spectre (20 years Army and Reserves) enlightens us:
"Something like this cyanide find is very different. To me, it looks like they stumbled upon something that could have been in its operational stage. Convention two weeks away and all."
I just saw your thread on the sodium cyanide crystal find. As first blush, it would seem just another nut that had some poison. Then I vaguely remembered something about the crystal form of cyanide. I did a little digging and the fact that they found sodium cyanide in a crystal form sent a chill up my spine. When combined with sulfuric or hydrochloric acid, the crystals produce hydrogen cyanide. Better known as the gas used in the gas chamber. Hitler's Germany called it Zyclon B.
I know you are well aware of the horrific use of that substance as part of "The Final Solution".My own opinion after connecting the dots here is that this is a significant event. In the cold war military, Officers had a hefty indoctrination into chemical and biological warfare. Hydrogen cyanide gas is some nasty stuff and causes a very painful death. Those that don't die from it, well, they may wish they did die. Couple that with the psychological aspects - immediate parallels would be drawn to the Holocaust, which would play right into the jihadists goal of terrorizing a population. Imagine this stuff dispersed into a air handling system at one of the DNC events in Denver.Here's a brief summary of the terrorists fascination with the gas. Not that Free Republic is the source of sources, but it is a great summary. The only other referenced I found on the net going into any detail, by the way, were cites on how to be an assassin.On page 40 of document ISGQ-2003-00000847 there is an October 2002 document where there is a request submitted by Zoo Al Fikar Military factory to the "Iraqi Directorate of Planning and Follow up" for 500 Kilograms of SODIUM CYANIDE (NaCN), 15 tones of HYDROCHLORIC ACID ( HCL), and 30 tones of SULFURIC ACID (H2SO4). Sodium Cyanide is an important precursor to produce a Chemical Weapon called HYDROGEN CYANIDE (HCN) also known as ZYCLON B and the use of Sodium Cyanide with Hydrochloric acid or Sulfuric Acid will produce this Chemical Weapon. Although Sodium Cyanide can be used for other military and civilian applications its combination with Hydrochloric Acid or Sulfuric Acid will produce Chemical Weapons and knowing Saddam Regime obsession of acquiring Chemical Weapons and other WMD, this document has a lot of importance. (FREE REPUBLIC)
The more I think about this, the more disturbing it is.
The way terror cells work, there are roughly 20 people involved as the "go team" cell. There are then those that provide the logistical support to the go team.
Generally, the acid needed for the combination with cyanide would be kept separately until just before the execution phase. To be caught with both the crystals AND the acid would be a dead giveaway as to the ultimate use of the substance.
Let's suppose that the plan was to work in teams of two - one transporting the crystals with the other bringing the acid. In your typical cell, that would be 10 teams disbursing 10 pounds of hydrogen cyanide into the air. While a pound of this stuff may have limited impact (people in close proximity to an air duct), 10 pounds of the stuff would create one hell of a toxic atmosphere over a fairly wide area - like a ballroom.
Anyone that has studies how these terror cells work could certainly put two and two together here. And in conducting an investigation, non law enforcement authority can blithely dismiss this incident as some random act by a lone nut. You HAVE to assume that there are probably another 9 pounds or so of this stuff floating around Denver. And you cannot dismiss the possibility of a high profile target like the DNC convention. It fits the Al Qaeda MO to a "T".
New findings on how offenders train with, carry and deploy the weapons they use to attack police officers have emerged in a just-published, 5-year study by the FBI. Here is just an except, for the complete report click on the link.
Somebody tell that to Feinstein, Obama, Schumer,Pelosi, Jackson Lee, Kerry, Clinton, Carolyn McCarthy, McGovern...but the list is just too long. Maybe I should mention just the democrats who aren't hell bent on legislating guns out of existence, you can count them on the fingers of a single hand.
"Predominately handguns were used in the assaults on officers and all but one were obtained illegally, usually in street transactions or in thefts. In contrast to media myth, none of the firearms in the study was obtained from gun shows. What was available “was the overriding factor in weapon choice,” the report says. Only 1 offender hand-picked a particular gun “because he felt it would do the most damage to a human being.”
Researcher Davis, in a presentation and discussion for the International Assn. of Chiefs of Police, noted that none of the attackers interviewed was “hindered by any law--federal, state or local--that has ever been established to prevent gun ownership. They just laughed at gun laws.”

That's how you treat cattle," said Adam Jung of the group Tent State University. "You showed the sign where it said stun gun in use and you just change the word gun for bolt and it's a meat processing plant."
Critics Compare DNC Holding Cells To Gitmo

By Rick Sallinger
CBS4 News has learned if mass arrests happen at the Democratic Convention, those taken into custody will be jailed in a warehouse owned by the City of Denver. Investigator Rick Sallinger discovered the location and managed to get inside for a look.
The newly created lockup is on the northeast side of Denver.
Inside are dozens are metal cages. They are made out of chain link fence material and topped by rolls of barbed wire.
"This is a secured environment," Capt. Frank Gale of the Denver Sheriff's Department told CBS4. "We're concerned about how that's going to be utilized by people who will be potentially disruptive."
In past conventions, mass arrests have taken place.
With Denver's jails already overflowing, new space had to be created and officers trained.
Each of the fenced areas is about 5 yards by 5 yards and there is a lock on the door. A sign on the wall reads "Warning! Electric stun devices used in this facility."
CBS4 showed its video to leaders of groups that plan to demonstrate during the convention.
"Very bare bones and very reminiscent of a political prisoner camp or a concentration camp," said Zoe Williams of Code Pink.
Williams was one of those arrested at the Republican Convention in New York in 2004.
"That's how you treat cattle," said Adam Jung of the group Tent State University. "You showed the sign where it said stun gun in use and you just change the word gun for bolt and it's a meat processing plant."
Gale would not discuss the facility at this time.
"We want to make sure we got our game plan set," he said, "We want to make sure the entire procedure is laid out all the personnel know what they are supposed to do."
The plans were to keep this lockup a secret, at least for now.
The American Civil Liberties Union says it will ask the City of Denver how prisoners will get access to food and water, bathrooms, telephones, plus medical care, and if there will be a place to meet with attorneys.
The protesters have already given this place a name: "Gitmo on the Platte."
And which party controls Denver?

ANDREA Pininfarina, head of the famed company that designed a multitude of automobiles like Ferraris, Maseratti, Bentley, Fiats and the Ford Focus, died in a road crash in the early hours of Thursday near Turin while riding his motor scooter.
Pininfarina, 51, was the grandson of the founder of a car body design company that became synonymous with some of the most iconic automobile body shells not only in Italy but throughout the world.
Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said in a statement that Pininfarina was "the representative of a dynasty that helped bring the story of 'Made in Italy' to the world."
Fiat and Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo praised his business acumen.
"Italy, Turin and the Fiat group have lost a business figure who knew how to follow and develop the work of his grandfather Pinin and his father Sergio," Montezemolo said in a statement.
The driver of the car, 78-year-old Giuliano Salmi, was taken to hospital suffering from shock.
"I didn't see him, I was going slowly and I really didn't see him," Salmi said, according to local news agency Ansa.
Founded in 1930 by Battista “Pinin” Farina, as a small auto body shop, the company had already stamped its individuality on such prewar Italian cars as the Alfa Romeo 2300 and the Lancia Aprilia.
It got into its stride in the postwar period with the superb Ferrari 250 of 1952 and three years later produced the characterful Peugeot 403, beginning a long and fruitful association with the French manufacturer that was to be repeated notably in the elegant 504 convertible.
Towards the end of the decade the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider was renowned not only as one of the most beautiful of small sports cars but became an immense seller for a car of its type, with 27,000 produced. With its slender lines it is still one of the loveliest sights on the road today.
Under the influence of Sergio Pininfarina, the founder’s son, the 1960s and afterwards saw the the body styling of the cars of almost all the leading automobile manufacturers in the world influenced by the Pininfarina genius, as Sergio developed the company into a world-class automotive design group.
Chevrolet succumbed to the beguiling touch of Pininfarina with its Corvette Rondine (Swallow). In Britain that modest family saloon the Austin A40 suddenly acquired an Italianate look with the Farina Mark II version of 1961, while the styling of Rolls-Royce (Camargue) and Jaguar (XJ6) were also to benefit from an “Italian job”. Meanwhile in Germany, under the aegis of Pininfarina Deutschland, a Mercedes-Benz “bendy bus” also suddenly acquired a distinctly meridional style.
In the era of Andrea Pinifarina, who had been chief executive of the company since 2001, there had been co-operation with the Swedish company Volvo, design for the South Korean companies Daewoo and Hyundai, development of links already established with the Chinese company Hafei and a limited edition Ferrari supercar, the Enzo, among many other projects.
Andrea Pininfarina was born in Turin in 1957. Unsurprisingly, given the family ambience, he received a technical education, and studied engineering at Turin Polytechnic from which he graduated in 1981.
After a couple of years with the Fruehauf corporation in the US, he returned to the family company, where he became programme manager of the Cadillac Allanté project to style the American company’s first luxury roadster. In 1987 he was promoted to joint general manager, becoming general manager the following year. In 1994 he became managing director.
The decade was a period of renewal and innovation at Pininfarina. Among new models were the Ferrari 456GT, the Peugeot 306 Cabriolet and the Bentley Azure. The company also addressed itself to energy and environmental problems with a range of new prototypes, among them the GM Chronos, the Peugeot Nautilus and the Alfa Romeo Dardo.
At the Turin motor show of 2000, the 70th birthday was celebrated with the introduction of a Ferrari research prototype and an international forum entitled On the Roads of the Future.
In 2000, at the 70th Geneva International Motor Show — also the 70th anniversary of the founding of Pininfarina — the company introduced four new designs: the Ferrari 360m Spider, Daewoo Tacuma, Coupé Fiat Special Interpretation and the Peugeot 406 Coupé, appropriately dubbed “Pininfarina settant’anni”.
Latterly, with the automotive industry under severe pressure from the economic downturn, Pininfarina had suffered heavy losses — more than ¤Meawhile, i
Andrea Pininfarina was married to Cristina Maddalena Pellion di Persano. She and their three children survive him. His father, Sergio, is still honorary chairman of the company.
Only 14 percent of Americans now approve of Congress’ no-drilling energy policy. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s anti-drilling, “save the world” strategy is making her dramatically unpopular -- so unpopular that she is secretly telling Congressional Democrats to vote for drilling. And Barack Obama -- who just recently suggested that Americans ought to focus on properly inflating their car tires in order to best conserve gasoline -- is now backtracking on his no-offshore-drilling pledge.

Perhaps they are the same 9-14% that approves of the democrat's leadership in Congress?

Following suit, Iranian-backed Muky Al-Sadr packs it in.
Good news out of Iraq is becoming almost a daily event: In just the past week, we learned that U.S. combat fatalities (five) dropped in July to a low for the war, that key leaders of al Qaeda in Iraq have fled to the Pakistani hinterland, that troop deployments will soon be cut to 12 months from 15, and that Washington and Baghdad are close to concluding a status-of-forces agreement.
Now this: Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr plans to announce Friday that he will disarm his Mahdi Army, which was raining mortars on Baghdad's Green Zone as recently as April. Coupled with the near-total defeat of al Qaeda in Iraq, this means the U.S. no longer faces any significant organized military foe in the country. It also marks a major setback for Iran, which had used the Mahdi Army as one of its primary vehicles for extending its influence in Iraq.

The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), a union that endorses Barack Obama in his 2008 Presidential candidacy, has negotiated with Tyson Foods recognize a Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr instead of the traditional American Labor Day holiday.
Employees are not happy with this stunt.
Workers at Tyson Foods’ poultry processing plant in Shelbyville will no longer have a paid day off on Labor Day, but will instead take the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr in the fall.
From The Shelbyville Times:
A recent press release from the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) stated that a new contract at the Shelbyville facility “implements a new holiday to accommodate the … Muslim workers at the plant.”
The RWDSU stated that “the five-year contract creates an additional paid holiday, Iidal Fitil, a Muslim holiday that occurs toward the end of Ramadan.”
Eid al-Fitr falls on Oct. 1 this year.
From The UFCW website (6/10/08):
UFCW President Joe Hansen spoke with the RWDSU Executive Board at a meeting in Washington, D.C., this morning, discussing the importance of electing Sen. Barack Obama in the presidential election, the upcoming UFCW convention in Montreal, and the issue of immigration reform.
At the meeting, the RWDSU Executive Board endorsed Obama for U.S. president, and also heard from guest speakers Congressman Steve Israel (D - NY) and Congressman Anthony D. Weiner (D - NY).
Tyson should not have sacrificed a traditional American holiday for this Muslim recognized Ramadan holiday.
