A Call To Remember History

I've been off here over 3 years as I've re-started my life after returning from 16 months in Iraq.  I returned to a country in turmoil, a move and other personal challenges and victories (and another move coming!), but over the last few years I've seen the nation grow worse, losing hope, losing courage, losing even the ability to see through obvious lies, as the left takes us into darker and darker places with each unconstitutional mandate.  Another 9-11 comes and goes with more terror in the world, and I felt compelled to dust off the old blog and let loose a rant as the media ignores the fundamental causes of the violence against us.

Anyone even thinking of blaming someone other than the muslims for the violence needs to watch this. Everyone needs to watch this:

The video exposes the lies of the school system and media. Dr. Warner illustrates 1400 years of islamic expansionism and 548 battles on maps, showing dots that rapidly grow and spread over a short time, expanding the Islamic empire, and he goes over the numbers killed, and the brutality... The crusades were a reaction to it all.  It's 45 minutes, but every minute is eye-opening (there is no "Golden Age" of islam where everyone lived in peace) and I cannot encourage you enough to watch it and be educated about the facts (and not just swallow the lies the media and schools push).  Watch it now.  Come back to this later.

The muslim attacks on US embassies resulting in our flags being torn down and burned and an ambassador and diplomats murdered are acts of war committed by those to whom this administration has funneled billions of our tax-dollars!  The same radical islamic expansionists the civilized world has been oppressed by for over 1400 years!  Instead of responding with force, cutting off aid or diplomatic ties, or even just strong words of condemnation, Mrs. Clinton reiterates an apology issued earlier today by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo--now deleted --which said: "We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims."

How much more pathetic can our leaders be?  The last night of the DNC, as a tribute to the troops, they displayed Russian ships on the big screen. Freudian slip showing their true colors, or honest mistake?

The pattern of subtle and not-so-subtle anti-American behavior by the left stretches back a long time, undermining our freedoms, making us weak and divided.  This emasculation of America must not be allowed to continue unabated lest all remaining greatness we have be lost to the ages, to be buried in a re-written history, chipping away our freedoms and stripping our achievements of their honor and glory.  It can all be replaced with mindless obsequious obedience to the elites of the left (as has been done in other leftist countries) inside of a generation or two through manipulation of the education system if nothing is done soon to stop it.  Let us not just remember the attacks on 11 September of 2001, but let us remember 11 September of 1683 and use it to find courage:

Though we too are besieged and face discouraging odds, we must continue to fight the darkness in thought, in word, and deed.  Jesus said, “If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. However, because you do not belong to the world, but I chose you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you. Remember what I told you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they obeyed my word, they will obey yours too. But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me. John 15:18-21.
“The one who hates me hates my Father too.” John 15:23
“I have told you all these things so that you will not fall away. They will put you out of the synagogue, yet a time is coming when the one who kills you will think he is offering service to God. They will do these things because they have not known the Father or me…” John 16:1-3

He was speaking to his disciples about those who would persecute them, but the same applies today to us facing the leftists and the followers of the “prophet” who preached hate, rape, murder, assassination, plunder, lying, breaking treaties, etc. As much as we are able, we are to live at peace with others- but are we able to live at peace with unchecked evil as it rapes, murders, and destroys freedom?  By allowing the evil to continue unopposed, we are tolerating it, and encouraging it.  We must make a stand somewhere.

Hopefully it won't be so long between updates.  Stay strong.
