Michelle Obama celebrates Iran’s Nowruz Holiday

In an obvious attempt to appease Iran as wells as her husband’s apparent desperation to empower Iran with nuclear capability, Michelle Obama recently hosted Nowruz, an Iranian spring festival which marks the beginning of the Persian New Year, at the White House.

The Obama’s have not yet revealed if they’ll be invited to celebrate “Death To America” Day in Iran…

So our First Lady is celebrating the New Year of a country that commits atrocities like killing gays and treating women like sub-human species. Sure! Let’s celebrate horrific place and its customs…Iranian born Valeria Jarrett must be so happy!

White-House-Nowruz

White-House-Nowruz

As White House Dossier points out:

There are somewhere between half a million and a million Iranian Americans in the United States, about the same as the number of Lithuanian Americans. Where’s the White House Lithuanian American holiday celebration?

No, this is not about Nowruz. This is a clear attempt to appease the Iran government, and it is exactly what is wrong with President Obama’s approach to Iran and the rest of the world. It explains why Iran has been able to extract a deal that will allow the centrifuges to keep spinning and, ultimately, a bomb to be built.

What tyrants respond to is strength. Malice. Threats. Force. They do not love, and they do not seek to be loved.

When Qadaffi gave up his nuclear program after Bush invaded Iraq, it wasn’t because Laura Bush celebrated a Libyan holiday.

Our attempts to placate evildoers with something like a Nowruz festival invite only contempt. It confirms for them that we are weak, and that they can take advantage of us.

We are, as these things go, a nice people. Some of us, mostly on Left, tend to think the rest of the world is nice too. It’s not.

It is, actually, no more than self-indulgence to assume others are like us. It is hubris. The hubris of someone like Obama.

The Iranians understand our leaders much better than our leaders understand them. They know Obama will never attack them. And they are negotiating accordingly.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who understands the neighborhood in which he lives, came here to warn America. Obama didn’t even bother to watch the speech. Because it contradicts his world view.

One day, quite possibly, hundreds of thousand or even millions will die because of the deal Obama is about to strike. Those people may be Americans.

Because Peace through Weakness is a deadly way of doing business.

Could this be happening?

Is Kerry being blackmailed with his Iranian family ties?

From 2015- move it up to about 1:30 to see her joyous because she is now proud to be an American.

Celebrating the meaning of the Spring equinox

As we prepare for the upcoming Christian celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we can also acknowledge and choose to celebrate the event of the Spring Equinox. Actually very much intertwined. I invite you to explore a relationship with the Christian tradition and many ancient and present religions, and their commonality. Among the Roman Catholic church and Protestant denominations, Easter Sunday falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after MARCH-20, the nominal date of the Spring Equinox. Its ancient linkages to sun and moon worship are obvious.

The Moravian Church (the earliest protestant church) of which I am a member, Easter begins with a Sunrise service. Before the Sun has begun to rise, members gather at the Church. We take a long wistful walk to the cemetery. A brass Choir heralds the rising of the Sun. A beautiful service. Link More Moravian faith.

We recognize the new dawn – resurrection with the rising of the sun. How much different from our ancestors? I offer you this video when you have some time for self-reflection, and then the links below for your consideration. 

Belsebuub & Angela Pritchard from Belsebuub expand upon the symbolic and spiritual significance of this time.

“…Throughout the world, the spring equinox is a time of great confrontation between the forces of darkness and light, in the death and resurrection of the central deities of sacred teachings throughout the world.

“It symbolizes what an initiate goes through in a definitive and important stage of self-realization, where the struggle between darkness and light creates the opposition needed to attain immortality. This is symbolized by the dark half of the year on one side of the spring equinox sun, and the light half of the year on the other…

Sunday Respite – ‘Keep on the Sunny Side’

I guess I have grown nostalgic for the old days and times. With the stress of these days, Mother Maybelle reminds us to “Keep on the Sunny Side.” I sure am trying!  Spring is in the air, days are getting longer.Make it a good day folks.

Mother Maybelle Carter and her daughters Helen & Anita plays an old Carter Family classic, “Keep On The Sunny Side”

There’s a dark and a troubled side of life
There’s a bright and a sunny side too
Though we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view
Keep on the sunny side   always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day it will brighten all our way
If we keep on the sunny side of life
Oh the storm and its fury broke today
Crushing hopes that we cherish so dear
The clouds and storm will in time pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear
Let us greet with a song of hope each day
Though the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Savior always
To keep us every one in His care

UK Police arrest man for Facebook ‘Hate Speech’ about migrants

Of course the result of silencing the population is that by the time they realize they are now the minority, living under Sharia law and all that goes with being a Muslim, it will be far too late to object and doing anything about it. Coming to our town soon. Already on our colleges. Dissent will not be tolerated.

British police have promised not to tolerate any speech that could cause offence on social media regarding Syrian migrants, after arresting a man for Facebook comments made about recent arrivals on his small Scottish Island.

The tiny Isle of Bute in the Firth of Clyde, which had a total population of just 6,498 in 2011, is expected to take in around 1,000 Syrian migrants, with 12 families already arriving since December last year (picture above).

However, commenting on the comparatively huge and sudden influx of Muslim immigrants online just became a very risky business for local residents.

Police have confirmed they have arrested a 41-year-old local man under the Communications Act, after receiving a report of a supposedly “offensive” comment made on Facebook regarding the migrants.

A police spokesman was unequivocal, that any harsh criticism of the Muslim influx would not be “tolerated”. Inspector Ewan Wilson from Dunoon police office told the Guardianfollowing the arrest:

“I hope that the arrest of this individual sends a clear message that Police Scotland will not tolerate any form of activity which could incite hatred and provoke offensive comments on social media”.

In December last year, it was reported that Facebook, Twitter and Google had teamed up with German law enforcement to delete “hate speech” within 24 hours, in what was seen as being a last-ditch effort to silence public dissent about the million plus uncontrolled arrivals.

In Denmark too, police have adopted a harsh stance. A veteran politician was arrested andhanded a steep fine earlier this month for tweeting about the European migrant crisis and Muslim anti-Semitism.

Obama to visit radical mosque which receives federal funds

Obama To Visit Maryland Mosque Tied to Muslim Extremists, FEMA Grants & State Dept.

That is the headline. Why is this story worthy of a post? Because while we are distracted by the upcoming elections, Barry will be the most dangerous in my opinion. It is his last year. His Rasputin Val Jar no doubt has a laundry list of anti-American destructive activity for him, As bloggers, we no doubt will be the only sources to call any attention to these activities. I bring you this news that doesn’t take much to figure out. This mosque funded Hamas, and other nefarious activities. We are funding the mosque. Here we go:

Taxpayers have unknowingly been contributing to this mosque. Source: President Obama Will Visit A U.S. Mosque For The First Time | The Daily Caller

The Baltimore mosque President Obama has chosen as the first U.S.-based mosque to visit during his presidency has deep ties to extremist elements, including to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The White House announced on Saturday that Obama will visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB) on Wednesday. He has visited several mosques overseas as president but has resisted visiting one in the homeland. The purpose of the trip, according to the White House, is to “celebrate the contributions Muslim Americans make to our nation and reaffirm the importance of religious freedom to our way of life.”

But ISB is a curious choice for Obama’s first domestic visit.

The mosque is a member of a network of mosques controlled by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a Muslim civil rights group named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terror case. Several executives with that organization were convicted of sending money to aid the terrorist group Hamas.

An imam who served at ISB for a total of 15 years has also been a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood network and has worked for an Islamic relief group that was designated as a terrorist organization by the Treasury Department in 2004.

While in Baltimore, el-Sheikh served as a regional director for the Islamic American Relief Agency. That group’s parent organization is the Islamic African Relief Agency, which the Treasury Department says provided funds to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, Hamas and other terrorist organizations.
