Whether American's like it or not, the United States of America is not God's arm of judgment or arbiter of the world's problems. That is what the United Nations is supposed to be about. Egypt is not America, Syria is not America, Iran is not America, and their peoples don't have the same history, beliefs or opinions that are generally shared and taken for granted in the USA. The western world needs to reclaim some lost commonsense. It needs to starting finding balance. It needs to begin assessing situations in a logical and realistic way rather than react to situations on the basis of a man-made (devoid of any god including Allah), 'anti-evolutionary' (survival of the fittest), feel-good (self-righteous) ideology.
Excerpts from three different articles which all portray symptoms of PC induced pathological blindness.
Mark Steyn's August 9, 2013 article titled: "Know Thine Enemy", he poses a striking question by pointing out that 'Major Hasan (Fort Hood) is honest about himself; why aren't we?' He commences his article by pointing out that 3 years 8 months and 8 days after Pearl Harbor was attacked, the Japanese surrendered but that 3 years 9 months and 1 day after the Fort Hood massacre, the murderer's court-martial finally got under way. He says:
The U.S. Army seems disinclined to hold anything against him (Major Hasan), especially the 13 corpses plus an unborn baby. Major Hasan fired his lawyers, presumably because they were trying to get him off -- on the grounds that he'd had a Twinkie beforehand, or his beard don't fit so you must acquit, or some such. As a self-respecting jihadist, Major Hasan quite reasonably resented being portrayed as just another all-American loon gone postal. So he sacked his defense team
Major Hasan. He's admirably upfront about who and what he is -- a "Soldier of Allah," as he put on his business card. On Tuesday, he admitted he was a traitor who had crossed over from "the bad side" (America's) to "the good side" (Islam's). He has renounced his U.S. citizenship and its effete protections such as workplace-violence disability leave. He professes loyalty to America's enemies. He says, "I am the shooter." He helpfully informs us that that's his gun. In this week's one-minute statement, he spoke more honestly and made more sense than Obama, Gates, Casey, the Armed Forces Court of Appeals, two judges, the prosecution and defense lawyers, and mountains of bureaucratic reports and media coverage put together.
"the organizers of the Million American March Against Fear (formerly the Million Muslim March), which will be held on September 11, claim that the march is being held to battle fear, discrimination and human rights violations. They are being wordsmiths. This is an Islamist-linked, conspiracy-promoting political rally that uses 9/11 to push an anti-Western narrative.
The march is being organized by American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC), an organization linked to Islamist radicals and 9/11 "Truthers." The head organizers have personal histories of promoting an Islamist agenda for America, anti-Semitism and 9/11 conspiracy theories. In fact, according to one of the organizers, the name of the march was changed to accommodate non-Muslim 9/11 conspiracy theory groups.
Defenders of Islam come up with all sorts of ways to discredit such claims, but there is a saying at home that if something walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it must be a duck. The forces pushing Islam (not to be confused with Muslims practicing Islam) have only one goal which has been stated over and over again by many people in many places at many different times: "To turn the world to Islam" (and destroy the Big Satan - The USA - in the process.)
Nothing symbolizes the Utopianism of our times like both liberals and some conservatives calling for us to cut off aid to the Egyptian military, because of the widespread killings in what is becoming a civil war in Egypt. Such utter lack of realism from the left is not new, but hearing some conservatives saying the same things takes some getting used to. President Obama's call for the Egyptians to end the violence and form an "inclusive" government, with all factions represented, may sound good to many Americans. But there is not a snowball's chance in hell that it will happen.
Egypt existed for thousands of years before there was a United States of America. In all those millennia, Egypt has never had a free or democratic society. Nor is Egypt unique in that. Of all the different nations that have existed at various times and places throughout recorded history, it is doubtful that even ten percent were free or democratic. Even free and democratic nations existing today took centuries to achieve freedom and democracy. Barack Obama may have enough ego to imagine that he could accomplish, during his White House years, what took centuries to accomplish elsewhere. But do others, including some conservatives, need to share that delusion? (See the Full Article)
We seem to have so succumbed to the allure of the promises of Political Correctness and Human Rights Nirvana, that we are quite prepared to support terrorists and terrorism and commit national suicide. Major Hasan who murdered those people at Fort Hood is sane, rational and proud of his rejection of the values that Americans hold dear. The Islamists - the radicals who, like Major Hasam care not for the values of the USA and who would quite willingly take the lives of their neighbors and their children if it served the cause - play word and mind games with the politically correct naive and otherwise feeble of mind whose self sense of superiority leads them to believe that what they hold dear MUST and WILL be accepted by everyone around them. This is exemplified in the US relationship with the Government of Egypt. Bleeding hearts know not what is right and wrong; what is good and what is evil; they only know that their hearts bleed for 'poor defenseless victims' of someone's oppression.
Whether American's want to hear it or not or like it or not, the United States of America is not God's arm of judgment or arbiter of the world's financial, political or social problems. That is what the United Nations is supposed to be about and if it isn't doing the job then perhaps it should be dispensed with. Egypt is not America, Syria is not America, Iran is not America, and their peoples don't have the same history, beliefs or opinions that are generally shared and taken for granted in the USA.
The western world needs to reclaim some lost commonsense. It needs to starting finding balance. It needs to begin assessing situations in a logical and realistic way rather than react to situations on the basis of a man-made (devoid of any god including Allah), 'anti-evolutionary' (survival of the fittest), feel-good (self-righteous) ideology.
Political correctness today as far as Mid-Eastern politics and Radical Islam are concerned, demonstrates a pathological blindness not just to the realities of life in those arenas, but complete lack of comprehension that Islam has a complete aversion to everything that Political correctness and 'human rights' doctrines support: homosexuality, secular humanism, women's rights, democracy, free speech, the right to watch pornography and to protest against the powers that be.
Political Correctness and 'human rights' are the 'FOX' upon whose back the scorpion is riding and the end result is inescapable.
There is an old adage that says that we should choose between the lesser of two evils, but that only applies when a choice MUST be made and CAN ONLY BE MADE between two evils. We are not obliged to adopt the extremes of the ideologies of political correctness and 'human rights'. Anything that operates in the extreme does damage. Everything must be balanced so that the greatest possible hope for harmony exists. Kowtowing to Radical Islamists in the name of Political Correctness is wrong. Abuse of Muslims because of Radical Islamists is wrong. Giving concessions to Muslims when those same concessions are removed from Christians is wrong. Pretending that a self-avowed terrorist is a 'victim' of a non-existent involvement in frontline warfare is wrong. Supporting one side of nation's civil war over the other is also wrong - particularly when experience has shown that Islamic countries like to bite the hand that feeds them. As the Chinese government likes to say: 'Foreign countries should not interfere in China's domestic affairs'.
We have to stop being blinded by our own ideologies and political aspirations and let Egypt, Syria and Other countries sort out their own problems, and then we have to stand back and respect the side that won. If the United Nations cannot deal with the problems of the nations, then we have no business sticking our noses into another country's affairs.
Having met up with my pen friend we went ‘somewhere’ and there was this big open paved garden type area and there were platforms going nowhere which you ascended by climbing stairs. Through the middle of the paved courtyard-garden ran a little pond. I was fully aware of its existence but so focused was I on taking a good photo that I was walking while looking through the viewfinder of the camera. I fell straight into the pond.
Given the new American President’s desire to actually cause the USA to prosper, and given the number of calls for breaking the regulatory strangle hold that some political bodies have on business and the community, I thought it might be worthwhile republishing this litte tale.
The point in providing these videos on behalf of the Clarion Project is to hopefully assist in getting the word out that the extreme liberal progressive ideology does not represent REALITY when dealing with the politically motivated fundamentalist Islamist plan.

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
