Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Facebook Boycott


A major spike in blog hits aroused my curiosity.  My post about the October 24 ’09 Facebook boycott over Koran Toilet Paper Roll has been receiving an unusual number of hits. With some research, I discovered that there is a  campaign to boycott Facebook  for three days beginning at Noon May 19 because of the celebration of “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day”.

One event page for the boycott has 7,067 confirmed guests.  I found three groups related to the Draw Muhammad Day:
Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!, with 40,319 supporters, Everybody Draw Mohammad Day – May 20th, 2010, with 4,375 supporters and
Everybody draw Muhammad with 1,080 supporters.

Even the high court in Lahore has gotten into the act, ordering isps to block Facebook for three days.   Muslims can’t take criticism because Islam is false & malignant, and they know it. Moe warned his followers not to carry the Qur’an into Dar ul-harb because we would use it against them. He was right about that.  The internet has made  translations of the Qur’an & hadith widely available.  We therefore know that the Qur’an is partially composed  of situational scripture.

Searching Sahih Bukhari for “was revealed”  provides clarifying details about several verses.  One hadith lets the cat out of the bag.

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3453:

‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: I felt jealous of the women who offered themselves to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: Then when Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, revealed this:” You may defer any one of them you wish, and take to yourself any you wish; and if you desire any you have set aside (no sin is chargeable to you)” (xxxiii. 51), I (‘A’isha.) said: It seems to me that your Lord hastens to satisfy your desire.

We also know how Moe received his revelations: hallucinations secondary to epileptic fits.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 1, Number 2:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

(the mother of the faithful believers) Al-Harith bin Hisham asked Allah’s Apostle “O Allah’s Apostle! How is the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?” Allah’s Apostle replied, “Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all and then this state passes ‘ off after I have grasped what is inspired. Sometimes the Angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me and I grasp whatever he says.” ‘Aisha added: Verily I saw the Prophet being inspired Divinely on a very cold day and noticed the Sweat dropping from his forehead (as the Inspiration was over).

Sahih Muslim Book 007, Number 2654:

Ya’la b. Umayya reported on the authority of his father (Allah be pleased with them) that a person came to the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) as he was at Ji’rana and he (the person) had been putting on a cloak which was perfumed, or he (the narrator) said: There was a trace of yellowness on it. He said (to the Holy Prophet): What do you command me to do during my Umra? (It was at this juncture) that the revelation came to the Apostle of Allah (way peace be upon him) and he was covered with a cloth, and Ya’la said: Would that I see revelation coming to the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him). He (Hadrat ‘Umar) said: Would it please you to see the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) receiving the revelations ‘Umar lifted a corner of the cloth and I looked at him and he was emitting a sound of snorting. He (the narrator) said: I thought it was the sound of a camel. When he was relieved of this he said: Where is he who asked about Umra? When the person came, the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) said: Wash out the trace of yellowness, or he said: the trace of perfume and put off the cloak and do in your ‘Umra what you do in your Hajj.

Perhaps most importantly, we know what motivated Moe: loot & extortion.

8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

I regret that I have no artistic ability whatsoever. I can only express my contempt for Moe’s War Cult through the written word.

Kagan: HELL NO!!!


I just read  Can Kagan Be Trusted to Defend the Constitution? in which   Ross Kaminsky  assembles the critical pieces of the nominee’s attitude toward the First Amendment’s free speech clause. I want you to follow that link to Human Events

Kaminsky points out how Kagan’s arguments in important cases before  the  Supreme Court indicate an unacceptable lack of respect for the right of free expression.  Crucial quotes from a paper she wrote amplify that concern. I am glad that Kaminsky posted a link to the paper, because I clicked it and saw its title. “Private Speech, Public Purpose: The Role of Governmental Motive in First Amendment Doctrine”  Since when do the ends justify the means?   This quote was found on page 55 of the paper.

The realm of public expression may have too much of some kinds of speech, too little of others; some speakers may drown out or dominate their opposite numbers. Self-conscious redistribution of expressive opportunities seems the most direct way of correcting these defects and achieving the appropriate range and balance of viewpoint.

President Obama spoke to the graduates  at Hampton University, giving us some clues.

And meanwhile, you’re coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don’t always rank that high on the truth meter.  And with iPods and iPads; and Xboxes and PlayStations — none of which I know how to work — (laughter) — information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation.  So all of this is not only putting pressure on you; it’s putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy.

Perhaps outlining some crucial points will make things clear for you.

  • bombards us
    • all kinds of content
  • exposes us
    • all kinds of arguments
      • don’t always rank that high on the truth meter
  • information becomes a distraction
  • putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy

That is dictator speak for “I need  new laws to squelch my critics who are hampering my efforts to enslave you and cement my party in power.”  What is the relevance to Kagan’s screed?  Another outline is in order.

  • too much of some kinds of speech
  • drown out or dominate
  • redistribution of expressive opportunities
    • correcting these defects
      • appropriate
        • viewpoint.
          • range
          • balance

What do they have in common?  Arrogance!!  That single characteristic sticks out like a sore thumb.  We are bombarded with all kinds of arguments, which may be untrue, and become a distraction, putting pressure on our democracy.  There  is too much of some speech, drowning out and dominating others. The remedy is redistribution of expressive opportunities assuring appropriate range and balance of viewpoint.

The President and his latest nominee to the Supreme Court are two  nuts in a Socialist shell who seek legislation to  criminalize criticism of their policies.  That is exactly what the First Amendment is intended to prevent.

Those two nuts are not alone in that Socialist shell, they share it with Mark Lloyd,  Obama’s appointee to the FCC.  Three years ago, he co-authored
The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio“.  That screed asserts that there is too much Conservative speech on talk radio and suggests public policy changes to reduce Conservative speech, supplanting it with Socialist speech.

We are facing authoritarian demagogues who seek to overthrow our representative republic, replacing it with an autocracy.  First, they must silence the guard dogs.

There are not enough  Republicans in the Senate to block this nomination.  Worse yet, they lack the resolve required, they are caving in.  We have no recourse except to rise up and raise Hell.  We must send a clear message to our Senators: Kagan is not fit to sit on the court: your vote for this nomination guarantees my vote against you in the next election cycle.  Reverence for the rights enshrined in the Constitution is the most important qualification for a Supreme Court Justice; Kagan lacks it.

http://www.congress.org/ has a form you can use to send an email to your Senators. It is free and easy. I urge you to use it immediately.
