I don’t know about you, but this really makes me believe that there really is something out there.

First video shows Marines on patrol in Iraq spotting some kind of horizontal light in the sky that they can not make out.  Before you view this I have to warn you that some of the soldiers are using some words that might be offensive.

UFOs Sighted By Marines In Iraq: Just incredible, unaltered footage!

UFO Footage From Iraq Soldiers: Strange lights seen in the sky over Iraq through night vision camera. VERY eye-opening!

There is no doubt that this strange rain fell on the small U.S. town in the Northwest, however, is it really an indication of germ warfare? According to the video below, in 1994 in the town of Oakville Washington a gelatinous rain came down for the first time as reported by local police. The substance found contained white blood cells, and was sent in for testing. The public tests and a private lab discovered that is was teaming with live bacteria. Shortly after this rain fell, many of the residents became very ill and a lot of animals also died.

There are now suspicions of biological weapon testing in Oakville Washington, but the military denies any involvement in the mysterious rain that fell in this small town. And for that matter, any weapons using weather control at all. But there are those who do argue those claims. Could this be an unfortunate event of contaminated water having been evaporated and happening to come down on Oakville?

In addition, some are also linking this incident to the now publicized outbreak of dangerous respiratory pneumonia in the Ukraine and Romania in the past few months that has caused a very high death toll. People are connecting them as germ warfare having been tested for the past 15 years or more and that now this respiratory pneumonia is a bio weapon as well. Of course there is no verification in these stories, no military coming forward from any country, no terrorist cell taking responsibility, and no concrete evidence to really support any of the claims.

It is a sad situation, that unknown and unexpected disease comes about in our world. But I feel it is just that, a freak coincidence that happens to effect human health in a dramatic way. I have seen evidence of weather control weapons and the “proof” has yet to convince me that it is very advanced or that it’s used to spread disease. I am more apt to believe that someone would release a disease such as we are seeing in the Ukraine and Romania through contact or injection, rather than the intentional distribution of bacteria through rain. Is it possible? Yes, it probably is in the future, but I really do not think we have advanced to that point as of yet. But this is just my opinion. May God bless and heal those who have been afflicted with these and all other diseases regardless of their origin.

Why We Fight

The protesters asked me,

when I put my bags on the plane.

“Why do you fight? All soldiers are the same!

There is no reason to go to war,

we think it is unfair.

There is no reason to go and die,

No reason for us to pretend to care.”

Their words strike me to the bone,

as I turn and look them in the eyes.

“I would love to be at home,

but I fight so you can believe in your lies.”

They stared at me shocked,

their flags dropping low,

as I told them a story,

One that very few people know.

I fight so they can say those things,

Their words that hurt me so.

Because if I don’t play my part,

who else will have to go?

I don’t do it for the glory,

because there is none to be found,

I don’t do it for the money,

I do it for my friend on the ground.

A bullet has punctured his shoulder,

he holds out his trembling hand.

He asks me to write home,

and slips me his wedding band.

We fight so you don’t have too,

as you all go about your way.

We fight so you can go to work

and sit in an office all day.

We fight for all the mothers,

who’s children lie in the Earth.

We fight for all the children,

who’s fathers missed their birth.

War is never pretty, and it is seldom ever kind.

But I’ll grab my gun and fight,

to protect any friend of mine.

So before you say that you don’t care,

that all soldiers are the same,

think about what you do,

before you place the blame.

You think that we shouldn’t be here,

that nothing will ever change,

look into a soldier’s eyes,

as they point their weapon down range.

We do it to protect you,

because there are things that you don’t know.

There is more than things that bump in the night

and that is the reason why I have to go.

By Lady Wolf

“Those who expect to reap the blessings of liberty must undergo the fatigues of supporting it.” -Thomas Paine
It is November and with this month comes the outpouring of people telling that of which they are most thankful. Many common answers, and good ones at that, are family, friends, health, etc. But one that I don’t see much on my browsing of social networks is gratitude for the freedom and liberty that we as Americans are fortunate to enjoy. I also do not see much in the area of gratefulness for the hard work and sacrifice of our current and past American soldiers. It seems the pride in our country is eroding along with the realization of the gift that comes with being U.S. citizens.

Liberty by definition means the immunity from arbitrary exercise of authority, or in other words, the freedom to think or feel or do just as one pleases. We must understand the unique privilege that Americans possess. It is a gift from God. Of course we must teach the morally correct way to live one’s life, but above all it is up to each of us to live the way we choose. This is where the idea of unalienable rights from the U.S. Declaration of Independence, “that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” may have come from. Yes, the majority our Founding Fathers were in fact God-fearing men. Most of the world today and throughout history has not enjoyed the vast freedom that we as Americans have been allowed. The government placed in America was inspired and unique to provide a place free of a tyrannical rule. No other country on earth in the present time or in the past has ever gone to such great lengths to ensure the preservation of liberty as the United States of America.

Knowing this great blessing that comes with being an American over the past centuries has been the foundation of courage, pride, and selflessness for the many men and women who have served in the armed forces. From the Revolutionary war to the War on Terrorism our veterans and current soldiers have understood the unique freedoms that they fought to keep for their loved ones. A friend of ours said in response to a women asking why he was proud to reenlist and fight after 9/11 replied with, “I would rather fight terrorism overseas away from my family than to see it ever happen here again.” It is to protect the families of America and the freedom and privileges that they defend to ensure that future generations have the same equal opportunities that our soldiers continue to this day to selflessly give their time and sometimes their lives.

Though any words I write feel completely inadequate, I want to say that I am so very grateful for the sacrifice that all our soldiers and their families have made. Thank you for keeping us free and safe. Thank you for believing in our country. I know that many do not view themselves as heroes, but you are in so many ways. You not only defend our country, but bring justice to those who have brought threats against us. Having never served in the military myself, I can not understand fully the meaning that this Veterans’ Day holds for those who have. So I think it is most fitting to try to see it from their perspective. Here are famous and not so famous quotes and thoughts on the wars throughout American history. (Not all quotes are from soldiers. The older wars are the more difficult ones to find soldier quotes.)

“I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”
Nathan Hale, before being hanged by the British, September 22, 1776

“Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry, speech in the Virginia Convention, 1775

“To have shrunk, under such circumstances, from manly resistance, would have been a degradation blasting our best and proudest hopes; it would have struck us from the high ranks where the virtuous struggles of our fathers had placed us, and have betrayed the magnificent legacy which we hold in trust for future generations. It would have acknowledged that on the element which forms three-fourths of the globe we inhabit, where all independent nations have equal and common rights, the American people were not an independent people, but colonists and vassals.”
President James Madison, November 1812

“I can anticipate no greater calamity for the country than a dissolution of the Union. It would be an accumulation of all the evils we complain of, and I am willing to sacrifice anything but honor for its preservation.”
–Robert E. Lee, from a letter of January 23, 1861.

“I, too, am doing my little bit in this big task for you. For you are my America and embody all the ideals that our great country stands for. Maybe if America had let her task slide by undone it would not have affected me or you materially, but we would not have upheld the ideals that our country was founded on and sooner or later the effect would have been tremendous and America a mere puppet to some gross power built upon false ideas. So what am I that I should not go and fight against the evils before us. If I should fall, there certainly could not be anything nobler in my short lifetime to fall for.”
Sergeant Lloyd Maywood Staley, Excerpt from a letter to his sweetheart Mary on July 5, 1918.

“We must remind future generations what happened in 1936-1942, so that we will not make a wrong step again, so that our sons will have a chance to live.”  Wing Commander Guy Gibson, VC, R.A.F, 1943.
“Casualties many; Percentage of dead not known; Combat efficiency; we are winning.”
Colonel David M. Shoup – (Tarawa) – 21st November 1943
“Among the men who fought on Iwo Jima, uncommon valor was a common virtue.”
Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz – 16th March
“I am glad I had the opportunity to pay back to America for all the freedoms and privileges I have. I don’t take them for granted.” “I fought for your right to disagree with what I personally believe. And I continue to think it was and is the right thing to do. It is a tradition handed down from our founding fathers that must continue if America is to achieve their vision.” Joel Ward Colonel, U.S. Army, Retired

 

*Executive Mansion, Washington, November 21, 1864.

Mrs. Bixby, Boston, Massachusetts:

Dear Madam: I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln.

In the words of returned serviceman Joe Cook, “Freedom is always worth the price.”

When the health care reform bill passed the House on Saturday by a 220-215 vote, it was as clear as ever that we are a country divided. The vast majority of those in favor of the bill were from the Democrat party except for one, Rep. Anh “Joseph” Cao of New Orleans, who was singled out as the one Republican that the Obama administration could sway to do their bidding. And, having received the “Obama Treatment” and oodles of political “advice” was just what Mr Cao needed to mold him into the one thing the administration needed…bipartisanship.

With the well known controversy of the Pelosicare bill surrounding the two political parties of Democrat and Republican, the one thing that was obvious was that no GOP member in their right mind was going to vote in its favor. It has been evident from the beginning of President Obama’s presidency that it was a difficult task to bring in enough support for a bill like this with the endless campaigning and lobbying on the part of the administration and it’s supporters. They were even right back on the band wagon as soon as the bill passed trying to devise their next plan to be able to forward the agenda. But the claim of bipartisanship was an obstacle that they wanted to over come, just so they could have that under their belt when arguing in defense of Pelosicare. Although, I would hardly call one measly Republican vote bipartisan.

This is why they spent so much time in the weeks before on Rep. Anh “Joseph” Cao. They saw a link that was weak enough to break. According to Fox News, Rep. Cao said that President Obama spoke with him for “a period of a couple weeks” and that Obama’s staff spoke with him “on a number of occasions.” And those talks sound a lot like flattery to me. Cao told Fox News that “We were able to sit down to talk about recovery, to talk about the needs of the district.”

The excuse for voting in favor of the health care bill in Mr. Cao’s eyes, was that his political situation is “special” due to having won in an upset election last December over Democrat William Jefferson. Cao even said to The Times-Picayune during the summer, “voting against the health care bill will probably be the death of my political career.” So, forget the Constitution, the American freedoms and liberty, the fight against more government control…just worry about your political career, because that’s what really matters in the end.

In my heart I know it probably won’t happen due to the overwhelmingly majority of democratic voters in New Orleans, but I sincerely hope that Rep. Anh Cao (and all Rhinos across America) get the boot in the 2010 elections. We do not need people in office that worry more about their political career than the future of America, and that goes for all parties. No more career politicians!

White House Spent ‘Weeks’ Courting Lone GOP Vote on Health Care Bill

capcrowd2

From WND

There was very little notice for most of America in regards to the “Emergency House Call on Congress”. With the protest being organized only about one week before the event was to occur, the turn out was impressive. At least 10,000 or more people descended on the nations capitol to let Congress know that the current health care bill presented by democrats is not what Americans want. They chanted phrases like, “Hands off our health care,” and “Kill the bill.”

It was a peaceful demonstration that was lead by Michele Bachmann and Pete Hoekstr. The group was there with urgency with voting possible as early as Saturday and since the health care legislation presented will not only cost the nation upwards of $1.1 trillion dollars, but will also lead to a decline in the quality of care that is received in our country. It will empower the government with authority they are not meant to have over our lives; it will take away freedom and consumer choice.

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. – Ben Franklin

There are many types of people who we come across throughout life, most of those to my good fortune have been hard-working, good-natured individuals that are bent on doing right and making an honest living. But on occasion, especially in the recent years, I have met some who are perfectly happy living off of others, or as I use to know it, being freeloaders. I have heard many times over, “Why go get a job when welfare pays more?” Or, “I’m not going to look for a job until my unemployment is almost up because it pays better.” And of course other similar remarks have come about too.

This seems to be an epidemic in our country now. Gone is the “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country,” attitude. It has been replaced with the notion that the government owes you something, if not everything. That you are somehow entitled to things you have never even worked for or tried to achieve. We have become a nation of many who are far too dependent on government for their needs and too selfish to care about the freedoms they give up in place of an easy mediocre life. And so, when big government rears its head as “help” and “hope” they immediately leap onto the train without a thought as to where is it’s true destination.

Once again, as we have seen numerous times in the previous months, Washington is seeking to expand what it seems to be a generous arm to help the people by extending unemployment benefits by up to 20 weeks and also extending the home buyer tax credit. In a 98-0 vote, the Senate passed the $24 billion Worker, Homeownership and Business Assistance Act of 2009 plunging our nation further into unnecessary and unprecedented debt. Will this help the issue with job loss? No, it will only pay those who are unmotivated to stay that way for 20 more weeks at the expense of the taxpayers who are still working. Will it help the economy? No, it will make those who are working hold on to their money that much more knowing that tax increase is inevitable to pay for the multiple bailouts backed by insufficient funds.

All the while it may help few that really are trying desperately to find a job, but it is increasing national debt, enabling freeloaders, and allowing more government control of business. What is needed right now is less spending and less government to get America back on track. This is a bipartisan step in the wrong direction. And with the Obama administration crushing American’s faith in capitalism, ruining the U.S. dollar, implementing unnecessary programs, and pushing to pass more government take over, you can bet that the dependency on the government will only grow at an accelerated pace. It is ironic that those who are in majority at Washington right now are called Progressives because we as a country are clearly regressing. We are moving away from a free society and towards socialism.

Half of US kids will get food stamps, study says.

Pay attention to the response of the people being interviewed in line for stimulus money in this video.

Radical Islam groups are becoming more and more popular in the U.S. And as the number of members goes up so will the incidents such as what happened in Detroit on October 28, 2009. These fundamentalists have been recruiting not only those of their own nationality, but now they also look to bring in others from American prisons. The dangerous momentum of these groups are on a difficult to stop path towards the ability to cause serious damage within our own boarders and yet we hear little, if nothing in regards to the mounting threat. Here is a report on the deadly shootout in Detroit; it is titled Jihadi Training Compounds, U.S.A.

As I watched the news last night a glimmer of hope raised inside of me when I found that the Republicans had won in the Virginia and New Jersey votes. This shows that many of those who were seeking “change” with Obama are now seeing that his far left agenda is not right for America as well as with all left leaning politicians. It also reveals that the Democratic methods used to govern these states are not what the people want. And hopefully now realizing that they don’t need to be taxed through the nose to get their economy back on track, but have a leader that will simply spend frugally.

Now that the election is over we are hear from the Obama administration that it was no big deal to lose. With Robert Gibbs saying, that the election of Republicans to the governorships in Virginia and New Jersey was based on “very local issues that didn’t involve the president.” They may think that downplaying their loss will work on the American people, but it was clear to see during the campaigns that the story was quite different.

President Obama spent a considerable amount of time campaigning for the Democratic candidates in the weeks and days before the elections. Obama even said at one campaign rally for Jon Corzine, “I’m going to need you to knock on doors. I’m going to need you to make phone calls,” he said. “I’m going to need you to do the same thing you did last year.” Not to mention the commercials he did for Creigh Deeds, and the extensive hours he and Joe Biden put in just talking to people and rallying for their Democrat comrades.  And now they say it’s nothing, just some local stuff that has nothing to do with the President?

I beg to differ. I think it has everything to do with the President and the way that these politicians aligned themselves with him and his policies. People are finally waking up and seeing that this “change” isn’t working and want to even the playing field. Although it is faint and some what a small victory, it is still hope. Not the Obama kind of hope mind you, but the kind that the American people are becoming informed and will stand up for the liberty and freedoms that have been uniquely theirs for centuries.

ocare2If you have been looking for another opportunity to show the Obama administration that you are not going to let your freedoms go laying down then here’s your chance! There is going to be a march on Washington November 05, 2009 to stop Obamacare from be shoved down America’s throat. Join GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann on the steps of the Capitol at 12:00pm and help put a halt to passing socialized medicine.
