Palm Beach County Republican Executive Committee, October 13, 2010

Very thankful to be in the company of tireless, dedicated patriots here in South Florida.

The last meeting before the do-or-die 2010 midterm elections was held the other night in West Palm Beach. At my friend Steve Rosenblum’s suggestion, all candidates in attendance were afforded an opportunity to speak first before attending to other business. I am so proud of everyone running and can only say that after listening to their presentations, I more excited than ever about next month’s elections. Florida has an excellent slate of candidates, and I am thrilled to support them via precinct walking, robo-calls (in the case of Pam Bondi), blog posts, social media and every form of activism available to us in the 21st Century.

One of the most dynamic, passionate and gentlemanly among them is Bernard Sansaricq, an intelligent, articulate voice for American freedom who is running against impeached judge/thug Alcee Hastings in Florida Congressional District 23. Bernard exuberantly announced Newt Gingrich’s recent endorsement of his campaign, to the delight of the entire audience, before noting that Belle Glade — Hasting’s  place of birth and the poorest area of the state — is suffering with 42% unemployment.

At a recent Belle Glade debate reported on by my friend and tireless patriot Yomin Postelnik, Hastings threatened Sansaricq after challenging him to a debate in which the statesman noted:

“I have visited Belle Glade 20 times since the beginning of the campaign and I intend on being YOUR Congressman.  And I won’t tell you that you need to hire a lobbyist when you need something from me.  That’s because your congressman is elected to be your lobbyist!

Belle Glade has a 42% unemployment rate.  You can be sure that when elected, I won’t hire some girlfriend and pay her $160,000 of the people’s money when those funds can be used to hire eight people in Belle Glade.  I also won’t take trips to Europe with that girlfriend on the taxpayer dime.  I will remain here and have a presence in the district, fighting for you.”

Alcee’s response, in full earshot of all of the assembled elderly residents of the no longer Quiet Waters, “You’d better travel safe! You’d better travel safe! You’d better travel safe!”

For those who don’t understand thug-ese, that’s a desperate threat (albeit an empty one) on Bernard Sansaricq’s life. — Yomin Postelnik

In case it’s not perfectly clear from that short excerpt, Florida CD-23 is in desperate need of  strong, principled leadership — and Bernard Sansaricq is the perfect man to deliver it. Please visit his site and donate anything you can.

In fact, take a look at each of these great candidates and do whatever you can to help. Our freedom depends on it.

The Travesty at Ground Zero

First, a stark reminder for anyone who’s forgotten that what happened on 9/11 was an act of war waged not upon a military installation, but innocent civilians. Among these victims, those who leaped to their death offer the most chilling insight as to just how horrific conditions were inside the World Trade Center. As many witnesses have stated, some held hands, while others jumped alone. When careening to a violent death from  90+ stories above street level is the better option, it’s gut-wrenching to even imagine what it must’ve been like inside.

If this video offends you, direct your anger at the Muslims who perpetrated 9/11, and the ones who are still waging Global Jihad.

And now, nine years later, when we still haven’t erected a memorial to honor the victims — including the incredibly heroic fire-fighters and policemen who willingly gave their lives to save others — sane Americans find themselves in the absurd position of having to fight against the travesty of a proposed mosque a scant few blocks away from the scene of utter destruction and human tragedy. Further, as AIP notes, “Part of one of the hijacked planes went through the building (Burlington Coat Factory) in question. That makes it very much a part of Ground Zero”.

My Conservative Republican Forum co-host and candidate for Florida State House, Steven Rosenblum, penned an excellent piece in which he (like many others) pointed out the real motivation behind the mosque as well as few inconvenient (for liberals anyway) truths:

In the Muslim faith building a mosque at the site of a military victory is a way of claiming that spot for Islam, the mosque becomes a marker to that victory. The original Mosque of Cordoba was built atop the ashes of a Christian church that a Muslim army had destroyed in the city of Andalusia around 711 A.D, as a way of marking the victory. So using the name Cordoba is not a coincidence and only makes this project’s intent even more questionable and its construction that much more objectionable.

The construction of this mosque, using this name, at this location would be akin to the Israelis attacking Mecca, destroying the Masjid al-Haram (the largest mosque in the world) and then building a synagogue in its place. The Islamic world would never tolerate such an act.

And while we’re discussing what the Islamic world would never tolerate, these “tolerant”, “sensitive” people would never allow a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue to be built anywhere in their countries, much less on or near hallowed ground. Make no mistake, Ground Zero is hallowed ground and should be treated as such. The only memorials or markers that should be built in or around the site of the World Trade Center should be to those that were murdered there, including the brave men and women of the New York City Police Department, the New York City Fire Department and the Port Authority Police of New York and New Jersey.

Amen to that.

And one of my very favorite Smart Girls, Andrea Tantaros takes it a step further by posing the question: Why won’t the Left defend Christians as fiercely as it defends Muslims? Please click on the link to read the entire piece, but here’s a sample of Andrea’s excellent analysis:

There has always been a double standard when it comes to understanding and explaining the Muslim religion verses Christianity.

While many Muslim countries ban women from voting, driving a car, and threaten to kill anyone who speaks of Christ within their borders, you rarely hear those on the left invoke sharp criticism or shake their finger in fury.

Instead, they save the attacks and their selective attention span for the random “Christian” who blocks an abortion clinic.

When the radical Islamic Fort Hood shooter claimed the life of twelve soldiers, the media dubbed him “troubled.”

A CNN.com article, along with many others, only identified him an “Army psychologist” and failed to make any reference to his ties to radical jihadism or make initial references to his religion – even after e-mails were found detailing his extremist views.

It’s no big deal when newspapers dub Christians “The American Taliban.” And it’s okay for Ted Turner to call Catholics with ashes on their head “Jesus freaks.” But God forbid you refer to the guys crashing the planes into building as Allah freaks.

I don’t understand why liberals, who enable and empower our enemies with their constant America-Christian-and-Jew bashing, refuse to get that their “tolerant” heads are just as valuable to a jihadist as any conservative one. While I am at it, the same goes for all of the 9/11 Truther freaks, the Ron Paul cultists and the Alex Jones devotees, all of whom align themselves with the radical left when it comes to matters of national security, Islamic terrorism and waging this war for our very survival.

Newsflash: Sharia Law and Global Jihad are stark realities we must confront and defeat, period. They exist not because of American foreign policy, but because they are steeped in centuries of hatred. This is a strident political ideology wrapping itself up in the cloak of religion and exploiting the over-sensitivity and hyper political correctness of modern western civilization. And liberals who support this mosque — along with 9/11 Truthers and the cult of Ron Paul — are useful idiots to their cause.

Let me expound upon Andrea’s salient point regarding the lone “Christian” abortion clinic bomber. Abortion is also the reason the alleged feminists among us remain silent in the face of the horrific abuses waged against Muslim women. They remain hypocritically mum about honor killings, stonings, the forced wearing of burquas, genital mutilation and other barbaric crimes because of their obsession with “a woman’s right to choose” (murder). Never mind that young girls in the Muslim world are married off to men three times their age, or that even here in the United States, Planned Parenthood covers up the rapes of minors, as proven by the intrepid young journalist, Lila Rose.

It’s all about abortion for these women, and since most of Christianity abhors the practice of killing the unborn (it’s still human life, no matter what stage it is in), they enthusiastically jump on the attack Christianity bandwagon, rather than do something truly courageous by condemning Islam’s oppression of women and the proposed Ground Zero mosque.

They are morally bankrupt.

Thank goodness, the hardworking men and women of New York are fighting back.

Calvin Coolidge: America’s Unsung President

Since Steve posted this link to Facebook, I thought I’d post one of my very favorite quotes from America’s 30th President:

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” —Calvin Coolidge

And judging from the Wikipedia biography, it’s quite evident that Ol’ Cal would’ve considered himself part of the country class:

Coolidge restored public confidence in the White House after the scandals of his predecessor’s administration, and left office with considerable popularity. As a Coolidge biographer put it, “He embodied the spirit and hopes of the middle class, could interpret their longings and express their opinions. That he did represent the genius of the average is the most convincing proof of his strength.” Many later criticized Coolidge as part of a general criticism of laissez-faire government. His reputation underwent a renaissance during the Ronald Reagan Administration, but the ultimate assessment of his presidency is still divided between those who approve of his reduction of the size of government programs and those who believe the federal government should be more involved in regulating and controlling the economy.

This country needs Coolidge-style leadership now more than ever!

Independence Day Weekend

Heading to a Tea Party in Fort Lauderdale today, where among other worthy candidates, my Conservative Republican Forum co-host and contender for Florida State House in District 89, Steven Rosenblum, will be speaking. More thoughts on the 4th of July later, but for now, enjoy this preview of the History Channel’s, The Story of Us: Independence Day.

Thank God for the courage and tenacity of our Founding Fathers. Proud and grateful to be an American — a recipient and beneficiary of their vision of a country that would recognize that all rights come from God, not government. We The People who cherish the concepts of individual liberty, personal responsibility, peace through strength and justice for all shall prevail over every attempt to “fundamentally transform America”!
