That Time Of The Year Again

decorah_eagles.jpg

Last year, SH posted about the Decorah Eagles. I've been a fan ever since.

It's that time of the year again. The eagles have a new clutch. Two have hatched, the third should be out of the egg later today or early tomorrow.

Watch it HERE.

Hawaii Five-0 Crew Disrespects WWII Veterans

Punchbowl Cemetery.jpg
National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl

(Honolulu, Hawaii)

Twenty-four WWII veterans, 23 of them Pearl Harbor survivors, were at Punchbowl cemetery Friday, December 9. Their visit to the cemetery was part of a trip organized by the Denver based The Greatest Generations Foundation to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

While at Punchbowl the vets were honored for their service and given time to visit grave markers of comrades killed in combat.

As the vets entered the cemetery they saw a team from Hawaii Five-O preparing to shoot a scene for an upcoming episode.

"They were on the graves, and that rubbed some of the Veterans the wrong way with all of the camera equipment and the audio and the people walking over the graves. But we did our ceremony, and just as the day progressed last Friday just disrespect after disrespect," said Steffan Tubbs, a member of the board at The Greatest Generations Foundation.

The TV crew blatantly interrupted what should have been a solemn occasion. CBS issued a statement of apology. (more....)

Celebrating Freedom And Independence Makes People Republican

They say it like it's a bad thing...

Die-hard Democrats may want to keep their children well away from July 4th parades, according to a new Harvard study.

Researchers at the university claim youngsters who attend the patriotic events are much more likely to grow up as Republicans.

And it’s not just children – the study also claims that adults are more likely to vote for a GOP candidate on election day if they go to one of the parades.

(From BigPeace)

So, to the Democratic mindset, the 4th of July has little or no impact, and that those who do celebrate it are only engaging in indoctrination and propaganda.

But why do we celebrate the 4th of July? Phenomenal Content puts it best:

We celebrate the 4th of July as a reminder of the bravery of our forefathers and to celebrate freedom. We celebrate those things that were written in the Declaration of Independence, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Sacrifice, Freedom, Equality & Liberty.

Some Democrats find these things insignificant or even objectionable.

Below the fold, the complete text of the Declaration of Independence. Read it.

The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

    He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
    He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
    He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
    He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
    He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
    He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
    He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
    He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
    He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
    He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
    He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
    He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
    He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
    For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
    For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
    For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
    For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
    For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
    For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
    For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
    He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
    He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
    He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
    He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
    He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Arizona Gives Adopted Tea Party Flag Same Status As U.S. Flag

gadsden flag.png

Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill giving the Tea Party flag (aka Gadsden flag) the same protection for display as other official flags in the United States:

Under the new law, the flag has the same protected status as the American flag, the flags of any military branch, the state flag, the POW-MIA flag and the flag of any Arizona Indian nation...

The flag is named after American statesman Christopher Gadsden who designed it in 1775. It was originally used by the U.S. Marine Corps during the American Revolution and was meant to represent the 13 original colonies and their battle for independence from the British monarchy. Since then, it has been reintroduced by numerous groups as a symbol of American patriotism. The Tea Party movement is the latest group to adopt the flag for its message against big government.

Some on the left have objected to the bill by implying it is a political flag and, therefore, if it is protected, so should liberal "peace sign" flag. But Republican Rep. David Gowan correctly pointed out that, while the Tea Party has adopted the flag, it is still a historically United States flag.

Update on ACFJ Muslim's Malcolm X Celebration

LandOfTheFree.jpg

Regarding Muslim radical celebrates Malcom X at Charlotte, NC Islamic Center

A Jawa reader wanted to clarify Cindy Sheehan's role of protestor. The website I linked to here of the Action Center for Justice has Cindy Sheehan's video on the lower left of a protest on 7/17/07 rally in Charlotte, NC.

The reason she was inside and not on the street was because there were so many tired of Sheehans bullcrap at the pro-troop gathering that she didn't even get out of the car. She drove away skeered. She later managed to gather a small and I mean small group inside to give them her "love". More info here

The article also discussed "outing" Gathering of Eagles and failed to mention who they are...a group of Veterans. I remember when they first organized the Gathering of Eagles. Having learned of yet another protest in DC they wanted to be sure Viet Nam Wall Memorial was protected. They were afraid the crazies would throw paint on it. Had they not been there that might have happened.

Visit Gathering of Eagles for info on the March 15, 2008 "Americans Standing Up: Call to Arms for DC Troop Rally.

Muslim Leftist Celebrates Malcolm X's Legacy at Islamic Center of Charlotte, NC

The Charlotte, North Carolina Chapter of Action Center for Justice" is promoting a "Malcolm X: The Man, The Times, The Legacy--Charlotte" event. The event will be held at the Islamic Center at Charlotte, NC and hosted by Ahmad Daniel, a Muslim who melds Islam with leftist ideology.

The "Action Center for Justice" [ACFJ] website is full of anti-war propaganda. It boasts the likes of radicals such as Cindi Sheehan, Al-Awda, Palestine Right to Return Coalition, Code Pink, & World Can't Wait to name a few.

ACFJ has a "Free Mumia Abu-Jamal campaign". Abu-Jamal brutally murdered a Philadelphia Policemen. They also feature: "Stop Israeli Occupation", "US out of Pakistan", yada yada yada.

Their biggest campaign appears to be the "Impeach Bush and Cheney" movement. They mention the Gathering of Eagles, but call the patriotic group of veterans a "Flock of Shit". They have "exposed" the group claiming (rightly):

"Pro War Eagles tied to the Republican Party & Conservative media".
Shocka! They include an article by Michelle Malkin to further prove their point...LOL. Move America Forward, Rolling Thunder and others just add to their "exposure" of this group. I guess to these leftists, American Patriots don't belong in America?

To cut to the chase, isn't it wonderful that they are announcing a program by Muslim Ahmad Daniels who appears to share their ideals and is ready to share with the Muslims at the Islamic Center in Charlotte?

Ahmad Daniel created Creative Interchange. "Creative Interchange"(CI) is a "non-profit" 501(c)(3) organization. His Motto is "Where Changed Philosophies Lead to Changed Behavior".

CI has a program called the Nguzo Saba Liberation Academy for males ages 10-16. That age is ripe for brainwashing I suppose... errr, I mean standing up for injustice.

The following video shows Ahmad Daniel's lovely speech at an 2006 "Impeach Bush and Cheney" rally in Charlotte (they are still holding these). He includes phrases such as, "as a Vietnam Veteran I endured 29 months of incarceration", talks about the "illegal occupation of Iraq", says "troops [are] returning home physically handicapped and psychologically DERANGED", and claims "we are violating the Geneva Convention".

He is introduced at 1:26. Be sure to watch all of his "Malcolm X" inspired speech. This guy will really calm down the Muslims in Charlotte, won't he?!?

Hmmm, I wonder if you-know-who will be there?

Video: A Hero's Welcome

A friend of mine asked the other day if I ever visited "good" news sites. Yes, I answered. Good news to me is when our finest and bravest take out the terrorists. When another alQaeda leader or Taliban member is captured or killed I rejoice. When we Jawas shut down their propaganda sites this is very "good news to me".

My answer isn't what she expected and she went further on to explain.

"I meant heartwarming stories. The feel-good kind of what someone special has done"
Taking out the bad guys is damn special to me I commented.

I started to think. It is damn hard finding the kind of stories she was speaking of. The MSM doesn't want people to think Americans care. "Bad news sells and good news doesn't", is their motto.

Imagine my surprise when reading my local paper this morning to find a "heartwarming" story about a very special lady that started "A Hero's Welcome" in August of last year.

This article was in the commentary section that I normally skip over due to rise in bloodpressure. Hmmm, have I missed others? Taken from Kevin Ferris's editorial at the The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Back Channels: A desire to give back is helping veterans," reads the headlines.

Sharon Hyland Keyser 28, left her full-time, six-figure sales career to fulfill a strong desire to give back to our returning soldiers. Her goal is simple:

Put your political thoughts aside, and honor our troops when they come home.

People always want to tell me we shouldn't be there. Well. I don't care what you think about the war. I Don't Care.

All she wants are local communities to know when a hometown hero is back. To thank vets when they see them in the grocery store. Pick up a bar tab, anything to show thans for serving our country.

The article goes on to say:

When Keyser gets a call from a family member in the service, she tries to find out what the vet is like, what he or she has missed the most, what one thing would make that homecoming complete.

Keyser has done about 20 locally-include an airport salute, a celebration at the vet's favorite restaurant or bar, an introduction to vets of past wars, even vists to local shools. "I want kids to see what a real hero looks like. "Keyser says. "Don't look up to Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan. Look up to real hero's."

Looks like Sharon Keyser has one lucky husband, Ian Keyser from the 173d Airborne Brigade. While home on leave from Afghanistan in the fall, Ian Keyser married the woman cheering him. The marriage took place at the airport.

I took part in an "Airport Salute" while waiting at our local airport. The welcome was started by a young child getting excited when she saw returning soldiers entering the tarmac. "Mommy look, bad-ass busters are home," she yelled.

LOL, that was enough for everyone to take notice and almost all at the airport stood and cheered. God Bless that child, she is being raised right!

This article jogged my memory of that "Hero's Welcome" and I am thankful for that. I hope to do more of those. I salute each and every one of our finest and bravest from the US Military! You are in my prayers every day.

Please visit her site, Hero's Welcome, to see if there is a chapter in your state.

Video from Glen Beck show about "Hero's Welcome" below the fold.

Michelle Malkin's Full Video Report on The Gathering of Eagles

Via Michelle Malkin's blog.

Many highlights there, but take special note of the face-off at the 6:00 minute mark. As you can see, we spent most of the day covering the march on the Eagles' side of the fence. Why? Because almost all of the news camera crews we spotted--the ones that bothered to show up, that is--gathered around Cindy Sheehan and the anti-war freak show

Michelle has much more, including links to other coverage, like how moonbat protesters treat ladys in Ronald Reagan t-shirts.
