Managing Americans Into Slavery

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

About a month ago, I received a tip from Larwyn on Obama’s Latest Big Brother Plan. To say it is chilling, is the understatement of the century. After I read about it, I immediately felt ill… I had not blogged on it because the last month has been hectic, but this indeed is something that will fundamentally ‘change’ all of our lives and not for the better.

The White House plans to expand the Office of Personnel Management. Most Americans don’t even know what this Office is, much less how dangerous it now is. First excerpt:

The Office of Personnel Management, (OPM), is suppose to be an independent government agency that is charged with managing the civil service system of the federal government. If you are a federal employee then civil service laws, rules and regulations that are managed by OPM govern you. One of the main charges of OPM is to administer and oversee federal health care provided to all federal employees.

The Director of OPM is appointed directly by the president and confirmed by the Democratically controlled Senate. The current director of OPM is a fellow by the name of John Berry who, before becoming OPM director this past year, was director of the Smithsonian’s National Zoo. — You cannot make this stuff up.

This is appropriate since in the opinion of Obama’s czars, Cass Sunstein for instance, we are all animals and not souls – so obviously, this is the perfect person for the job. You’ve got to be kidding me…

And big brother is coming and he will be merciless and drunk with ultimate control and power. Second excerpt:

Under the Democrats’ national health care scheme not only would OPM be charged with overseeing and administering federal employees health care but they will have the added charge of administering civilian federal health care as well. What does that mean? Basically, that Americans will be treated as “civil servants.” Are you starting to see the danger?

The more government seeks to control our lives the more Orwellian it gets. This “big brother” mentality that “government knows best” and that it is their mission to provide cradle to grave “care” of its citizens will doom America as we know it. Under such a system the individual becomes meaningless and the state becomes the entity upon which we are all forced to rely.

These are the fine folks that were tasked with the mission of ridding the executive branch of ‘Bush-era’ personnel. Beginning to sound like Venezuela or some other dictatorship yet? Well, giddy-up because you ain’t seen nothing yet if what I think is coming descends upon America. The Obama administration has now ordered a purging of Republicans from federal government civil service – going back five years regardless of performance. If you are not part of Obama’s inner cabal, you are out baby…

It is clear what the intent of the Obama administration is by looking at the following statement made by John Berry the Director of OPM:

Beginning January 1, 2010, agencies must seek prior approval from OPM before they can appoint a current or recent political appointee to a competitive or non-political excepted service position at any level under the provisions of title 5, United States Code. OPM will review these proposed appointments to ensure they comply with merit system principles and applicable civil service laws. I have delegated decision-making authority over these matters to career Senior Executives at OPM to avoid any hint of political influence.

The memorandum specifically applies this change to all political appointees hired in the past 5 years and effectively works to freeze them out of their current jobs or make their lives so miserable by denying promotions, that they will quit before they are forced out.

For those who poo-pooed the postings on Interpol, you better think again. If you can’t stare evil in the eye and defeat it, it will rule you and grind you under its boot heel:

For an incoming administration to make a “witch hunt” one of its top priorities and to attempt to fire civil servants who they believe are Republican “sympathizers” is something you might have expected in the former Soviet Union or from the KGB. But it’s not something we expected to see in the United States led by the White House.

The expanded “portfolio” of OPM should worry all Americans. This little known agency will make the IRS look down right friendly if the Obama administration is successful in expanding their duties, powers and responsibilities.

Read the whole Fox article here…

This agency is poised to have tremendous control over each and every one of us. If each of us can be treated as a ‘civil servant,’ you can be disciplined as a civil servant. That means added fines if you don’t eat right, diversify enough or redistribute your income correctly. Punishment can and will include not only monetary means, I would wager, but the possibility of prison and civil service punishment as well. If the OPM decides you have transgressed, you could be forced to donate your time or serve the community in some other non-voluntary way. Get it yet?

This will make it possible to punish political beliefs and to punish free speech. Americans will virtually becomes slaves of the State with no rights if this is allowed to evolve. Feel managed yet?



The Courageous Woman Who Inflamed The Muslim World Speaks Out Against The Evils of Islam


Reviewed by: FERN SIDMAN

In the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the United States, it became abundantly clear to the Western world that there was a new and pernicious nemesis in town. Radical Islamic suicide bombers had jolted us out of our torpor as we confronted the stark and frightening realization that our cherished democratic values, principles, code of ethics and very lifestyle were in existential danger. In order to eradicate the visceral feelings of resentment of Muslims that were ruminating in the psyches of Americans and other westerners; the media, along with those in academic and “politically correct” circles initiated a campaign of “re-education”. Extolling the virtues of the religion called Islam, they put forth the notion that Islam is a genuine religion of peace; a religion that places a sacred value on the sanctity of life. We were told that only a few extreme “radical Jihadists” belonging to an obscure organization called Al Qeada were responsible for tainting and maligning the purity of Islam.

Wafa Sultan, an ex-Muslim dissident from Syria, offers a wholly different take on this sophistical premise in her shocking new book, “A God Who Hates” (St. Martin’s Press – 2009) as she portrays a searing portrait of Muslim culture. The subtitle of the book describes Sultan as “the courageous woman who inflamed the Muslim world” as she “speaks out against the evils of Islam.” The reader is left with no doubt that Sultan is way more than a doughty and intrepid advocate of the truth, but a woman who is willing to place her life in mortal danger in order to preserve, protect and defend Western civilization as we know it. She raises the narrative to a highly profound level as she essentially reveals that, contrary to popular opinion, it is not a few “radical Jihadists” who are guilty of distorting otherwise warm and fuzzy Islamic precepts, but rather the culprit in engendering this kind of vitriolic hatred and bloodlust is none other than the Koran itself, along with the paradigm of the prophet Muhammad and the “god” known as Allah. She refers to Islam, as “the ogre” as she explores the psychological roots of a nomadic people who invented this religion in order to assuage their own paralyzing fears and overwhelming feelings of desperation and helplessness.

Wafa Sultan knows from whence she speaks. Having grown up in a devoutly Muslim home in Syria, she recalls her very personal stories of the barbarism of Islam and how it impacted on her and her family. Being born female in a Muslim culture that enforces a male hegemony, Sultan recalls the humiliating degradation imposed on her grandmother, mother and sisters who were virtual slaves to their husbands and their fathers. Contempt and loathing for women as inherently inferior beings permeates the Muslim world as is evidenced in today’s alarming escalation of “honor murders” in which Muslim men brazenly murder their womenfolk for alleged transgressions of Sharia law.

Women’s inhumanity to other women is also discussed here as Sultan tells us of the abusive treatment of daughter-in-laws by their own mother-in-laws who punish them in the same way that they themselves were tormented as young brides. Education for girls and women in Islamic society was sorely lacking and discouraged in order to keep them locked in a permanent state of servility. Their treatment of children is also spotlighted as abusive as the Koran mandates that they mete out corporal punishment to their children who do not pray or adhere to the tenets of Islam.

Sultan herself was fortunate in a sense. She was educated as a physician in Syria and her headstrong, independent nature compelled her to extricate herself from the draconian dictates of an oppressive religion. Moreover, as a physician in Syria she takes note of the glaring inequities of medical care as it pertains to gender. Dr. Sultan viewed Muslim men as anathema but as luck would have it, she met an educated man who respected her. After their marriage they made their way to the United States where she now raises her children and practices medicine in the Los Angeles area.

Citing a gamut of Koranic verses and providing concrete historical evidence dating back to the 7th century, . Sultan proves that the predicate for Islam is unadulterated fear, violence, hatred of the other, theft and murder. From the genesis of the Islamic movement, the author informs us of Arab nomadic tribes raiding one another in bloodthirsty rampages that left sheer devastation in their wake. Describing the terror and desolation that the Arab peoples felt so acutely during centuries of desert dwelling, Sultan tells us the fear of dying in the arid and harsh desert from hunger, thirst, illness and the always imminent attack by another tribe created an anxious and violent nation whose sole objective was daily survival at all costs. Says the author, “Arabs who lived in the environment that gave birth to Islam were powerless in the face of the challenges presented by this environment, which threatened their lives and their welfare. Because they felt so helpless they felt a need for forcefulness and created a god who would fulfill this need. When the Arab male lost his power he felt the need for a forceful god. And so he created a forceful god in the image of his need – but this god was not powerful.”

Thus, the religion of Islam instills a hatred of the infidel, “the other” and anyone who does not subscribe to the tenets of their bellicose belief system. History has recorded that scores of heinous murders of Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs were perpetrated by the hands of Allah’s followers. Because their god is described in the Koran as “The Harmer:, “The Avenger”, “The Compeller” and “The Imperious”, it is Sultan’s view that the Islamic people have internalized such labels and have sought to emulate the rudimentary character of their deity. Brutal savagery towards anyone they perceive to be a threat and even against one another is one of the modalities through which Muslims actualized these “godly” traits. She describes the prophet Muhammad as a man bereft of moral authority; a pedophile and a purveyor or violence and falsehood; He gives his tacit approval to his followers to continue on the trajectory of “holiness” by engaging in hostile acts of religious zealotry, without regard for human life.

Offering eclectic insights into Muslim culture, Sultan tells us that because Islam is so riddled with strife, negativism and banal hatred it’s language readily reflects this all encompassing disposition. As such, Muslims do not speak in a calm and reasoned manner but rather are vocally strident; resorting to constant shrieking, yelling, bellowing and shouting while engaging in acrimonious, ad hominem attacks of those who they are purportedly conversing with.

And that, of course, segues into a chapter called, “Who is that woman on Al Jazeera?”. As a world renowned essayist, Dr. Sultan’s opinions were well known through the Arab and Muslim world. For that reason, the Al Jazeera television network invited her to debate a domineering Islamic cleric on the topic of “the connection between Islamic teachings and terrorism.” It was in this venue that Dr. Sultan, having been denied the right to express herself or given enough time to state her case by the male moderator, did so anyway in an erudite and eloquent fashion without raising the volume of her voice; in contrast to her adversary who engaged in ear popping dialogue.

Given the last few seconds of the show to conclude her thoughts, Dr. Sultan was once again interrupted by the clergyman but this time told him in no uncertain terms to “Be quiet! It’s my turn!”. This kind of rejoinder is considered common parlance to us Westerners who enjoy watching television debates but Sultan these few words sent shock waves throughout the Muslim world. “I uttered this sentence without realizing it would open a new chapter in Arab and Muslim history. Never in the history of Islam has a woman clearly and forcefully asked a Muslim man to be quiet because it was her turn to speak”, says Dr. Sultan.

Throughout this engrossing and compelling book, Sultan generously heaps praise on her adopted country. She acknowledges her appreciation for the plethora of rights, individual freedoms and liberties that she has enjoyed in the United States for the last 21 years. She urges America to stand strong in the face of the proliferation of global radical Islam and suggests that it confront the burgeoning threat to our civilization that “the ogre” represents in a pro-active fashion. “I love America as few people do” says Sultan, and “my love for it makes me feel concern for it. I do not want any danger to threaten the safety or beauty of this country that rescued me from my fears and fed me when I was hungry. America, to put it very briefly indeed, is my freedom.”

FANTASTIC: New Poll has Scott Brown Ahead in Massachusetts!

Fantastic news, fellow conservatives.

A new poll out tonight shows Republican Scott Brown has narrowly pulled ahead of his liberal Democrat opponent, Martha Coakley, in the race for Senate in Massachusetts.

The race is now just a one-point contest, where Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley by a margin of 48%-47%.

The political news/opinion website, Politico.com, reported on the latest poll developments and noted that Brown has pledged to voters he will OPPOSE the Democrat’s government-run healthcare plan:

Republican Scott Brown opposes the government-run healthcare plan now being debated by Congress. He launched his campaign on the platform of lower taxes and reduced government spending.

He has earned the support of many within the Tea Party movement, and we here at the Tea Party Express want to deliver that message to the people of Massachusetts.

With polls showing the Tea Party movement more popular than either the Democrat or Republican parties, we here at the Tea Party Express want to run positive ads announcing our support for Brown’s candidacy.

But we have to act fast. The Special Election is on January 19th – just 8 days from now! This is an important election – and will be an uphill battle for us to prevail given the leftward slant of Massachusetts, politically.

But we must take action, for if we can pull out a victory we stop the Democrats dead in their tracks in their effort to secretly ram through their socialistic healthcare plan.

You can contribute any amount you can afford, from as little as $5 to the maximum allowed $5,000 — CLICK HERE to CONTRIBUTE

We’re trying to raise and spend over $100,000 on this race by Election Day. Therefore, we are hoping 265 more of you can afford a contribution of $100 or more so we can quickly meet our goal and get up on the airwaves with the Tea Party Express’s endorsement of Scott Brown.

New Poll: Harry Reid Plunges!

Fantastic news out today!

A new poll by the Las Vegas Review-Journal finds Harry Reid’s support has plunged to a new low. Reid’s support has fallen so much that all 3 of the leading Republican candidates against him now beat him in head-to-head matchups.

Friends – our campaign to “Defeat Harry Reid” is working. All the TV ads, radio ads and rallies against Reid that we have organized have further eroded support for Harry Reid’s re-election. In short, we are well on our way to booting out of office the Democrat’s Senate Majority Leader!!

Here’s the headline out today from the Las Vegas Review Journal:

We are winning, friends, but we can’t stop now.

The next wave of our “Defeat Harry Reid” TV ads launch this Monday morning, and we still have $29,650 we need to raise to fund this effort.

You can make a donation to our “Defeat Harry Reid” campaign – HERE.

Here’s the latest TV ad your donations are paying to broadcast:

WATCH TV AD HERE: “Defeat Harry Reid”

New Anti-Sandoval Blog Hits ‘Net, Hits Hard

By: Chuck Muth
Nevada News and Views

New Blog Slams Sandoval as a RINO

The battle for the soul of the Republican Party has now spilled over big-time into the gubernatorial race. A new, very hard-hitting anti-Brian Sandoval blog titled “RINO BS” is now up on the ‘net, authored by an anonymous blogger who describes his or her effort thusly:

“I am a Nevada citizen concerned because the Brian Sandoval campaign is the brainchild of the Reno office of R&R Advertising. More than 75% of R&R Advertising’s revenue comes from government advertising contracts, and (like all advertisers during a recession) government is having to cut back. To get Nevada governments back to their usual flush form, the Reno office of R&R is pushing Brian Sandoval while the southern office of R&R is pushing Rory Reid. It’s a win-win for R&R, not so much for the rest of Nevada.”

Angle Confronts Reid’s Ability to Prioritize Nation’s Plight

Says Reid is waterboarding the economy

Reno, NV – Sharron Angle (R-NV), a conservative former state legislator who leads over Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) by five percentage points in the latest Mason-Dixon poll released this month, said today that Harry Reid is unable to prioritize properly when it comes to the nation’s prosperity, adding that he is leading America’s economy over the falls. “What good is a disastrous socialistic health plan when you’re chronically sick of being without a job? Harry Reid’s obsession with controlling the nation’s healthcare has put the nation’s economy on a malfunctioning pacemaker.”

Angle said that the newest release of the country’s unemployment numbers meant prolonged torture for Nevada’s recovery. “Last month we saw another 85,000 jobs washed away because of the lack of confidence that employers hold under Harry Reid’s leadership, and Nevada’s major industry will be the last to recover while the country currently drowns from 10% unemployment and 17.3% underemployment. The numbers are even more troubling if you factor in the flood of the additional 661,000 Americans who swam off the labor force during December because they could no longer tread water as they waded through the sludge for one of Harry Reid’s fantasy jobs. The job seekers in this country have been waterboarded by Harry Reid’s stimulus drip of deficit spending while more than four million jobs were flushed away during 2009.”

Angle said Reid’s boastful claim that his role as Majority Leader has been beneficial for Nevada is unsubstantiated. “Our state suffers from the worst housing market and the second worse job market. Harry Reid is not a leader for Nevada — he’s a fish on a leader who’s been reeled in by this radical left-wing administration, and our country is not willing to tread water for another six years of Harry Reid’s failed leadership. As Reid’s replacement, I will fight to return the federal government to its constitutional role, and I will to fight to lessen the burdens of overbearing taxation and overreaching regulations that are keeping job creators and American households under water.”
