While Obama’s personal US Attorney General Eric Holder continues with his latest assault on US States’ laws and Constitutional rights–he’s decided gay marriages must be recognized in all States…regardless of what States’ laws contain–his partner in multiple crimes, Obama and his syndicate, has come up with the new Democrat talking points which extol poverty and lack of work and/or work hours; but, only for the “masses.”
Many Dems (including New York Democrats Sen. Charles Schumer and Minnesota Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison) are spinning Obama’s plan of successfully destroying and eliminating America’s middle class with ObamaCare’s elimination of–per the Obama CBO–at least 2.3 million jobs as a “good” thing. On Sunday’s Meet the Press, Schumer said “The single mom, who’s raising three kids (and) has to keep a job because of healthcare, can now spend some time raising those kids. That’s a family value.” Question: Do Schumer’s “family values” extend to said families living in a cardboard box when the money runs out? However, Chuck didn’t bother to say how difficult it will be to raise “those kids” with far less money or no job at all. If few-to-none are working and producing anymore (the program Obama is now implementing), the money dries up for the masses and Obama will have accomplished his goal of making everyone in the country–except the elite–”equally” poor. Rep Ellison simply said: “This is a good thing.”
ObamaCare was and is designed to impoverish everyone, as well as ensuring the end of the middle class…as Obama’s mentor Saul Alinsky wanted and taught. From his beginning tenure as our illegal POTUS, Obama has been working toward killing the middle class in America, in order to ensure that only those he and his political elites choose to become nouveau riche will become so. He is, also, ending any chance of wealth for his opposition. Maybe, in addition, he’s also eliminating any possibility for their long lives?
In his infamous work “Rules for Radicals,“ Alinsky wrote of destroying the American middle class “Our rebels have contemptuously rejected the values and the way of life of the middle class. They have stigmatized it as materialistic, decadent, bourgeois, degenerate, imperialistic, war-mongering, brutalized and corrupt. They are right; but we must begin from where we are if we are to build power for change, and the power and the people are in the middle class majority.” In the 1970s, Alinsky commented that it would be difficult to coerce and destroy the American middle class as it was “too well-educated” and too wealthy. At that time, the Marxist Democrats were already well underway in their implementation of the dumbing-down of American students in the public (government) school system. Today, we are reaping those seeds that were sown with the lack of any real education and a population that is grossly undereducated; or–with the drop-out rate continuing to grow–not educated at all.
Tyranny and dictatorships require a population that has been [only] indoctrinated with the ideologies of its rulers and otherwise ignorant to realities in the world, one that has become less and less mobile (“cars bad…walking good”), the availability of less and less energy and food (keeps the proletariat concentrated on merely staying alive) and one that has become dependant upon the ‘good will’ of its rulers. Please take a moment to look around at what has happened and is continuing to happen to your/our country. What do you see?

Negotiators representing Pakistani Taliban insurgents said that there could be no peace until Pakistan embraces Islamic Sharia Law and US-led forces withdraw completely from the neighboring Afghanistan. Sami ul Haq, founder of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen and the head of the TTP’s three man talks team, said that there could be no peace in the region while there is NO SHARIA but democracy. The tough conditions appear to deal a blow to hopes that peace talks with the Pakistani government could end the TTP insurgency that has rocked the country since 2007.
Religion is not meant to be – and never was – forced upon an individual against his or her own will. Unfortunately, Pakistan is facing terrorism and some Islamic fundamentalists want to impose their rigid rituals and rights on non-Muslims. The Pakistani government is in a state of confusion about whether to confront them, which could lead to even more rabid mobs in the short-term, or allow the terrorizing of innocents to continue. Amidst all of this turmoil, government is again wasting time in attempting to negotiate, all the while knowing that this process will bring no solid result.
Taliban peacekeeping troops and Pakistani government negotiators are meeting to devise a strategy for formally kick-starting a much-awaited dialogue process. The Taliban had nominated five prominent figures – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf; PTI Chairman, Imran Khan, Jamiat Ullma-e-Islam JUI-S; Chief Maulana Sami ul Haq, Jamaat-e-Islamai JI leader; Prof. Mohammad Ibrahim, JUI-F politician Mufti Kifayat ullah; and Lal Masjid prayer leader Maulana Abdul Aziz – to act as intermediaries between them and the government’s negotiating team. Imran Khan strongly opposes the military operation in North Waziristan. He is also leading the campaign in Pakistan against US Drone attacks of terrorist outfits.
Earlier, Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesperson Shahidullah Shahid has said that Pakistani people have been fed-up with the anti-Islam system of democracy and are looking toward the Taliban for “change”. He further stated that Taliban have spilled out to different cities of Pakistan and now their aim is to make Islamabad the stronghold of Islam. This would mean every decision being made according to Sharia law. TTP fellow negotiator Maulana Abdul Aziz also said the TTP’s long-held commitment to imposing Sharia law across Pakistan was not open to debate. Without Sharia law, the Taliban won’t accept (the talks) even one percent.
Terrorism in Pakistan has become a highly vicious reality in recent years. The annual death toll from terrorist attacks has risen up to approximately 60,000 in last 13th years. According to the government of Pakistan, the direct and indirect economic costs of terrorism from 2000-2010 was $68 billion. Former Presidents Asif Ali Zardari, and Gen. Pervaiz Musharraf, had to admit that terrorist outfits were “deliberately created” and looked after by previous governments as a policy to achieve some short-term strategic objectives. This began with Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq’s controversial ISLAMIZATION policies of the 1980s, under which conflicts were started against Russian involvement in Afghanistan. Zia’s tenure as president included when Pakistan’s involvement in the Afghan-Soviet War was well under way, which led to a greater invasion of ideologically driven Mujahideen into the Tribal areas (“FATA”) of Pakistan; it amplified the Kalashnikov Culture and drugs from Golden Crescent.
Zia, who was an extremist Muslim while he was the president of Pakistan, tried to impose Sharia in Pakistan. He was even the person who introduced the famous Blasphemy Law in Pakistan. He wishes and desires that Pakistan should be a State under the Sharia.
When Zia took over in 1977, he used religion as a tool to oppress people and to punish anyone who dared to speak against him. It was during his reign that hundreds of people – including journalists – were publicly lashed. It was on his instructions that the Hudood Laws were formulated. He is the one who started the process of changing things for the worse.
In 1984, he instructed the textbook boards to prepare books which showed that ‘Pakistan was not formed on the basis of race, language or geography but based on a common religious experience’. Students should be told about how Pakistan was created on Islamic Ideology. He also instructed them to eliminate the role of Minorities from the books.
In 80s he welcomed Mujahideen from Arab, Chechnya, Uzbekistan, Indonesia and other part of world to fight against the USSR. He puts Pakistan into fire by establishing thousands of Mudassa’s to train these Mujahideen. This was the time When Osama Bin laden along with thousands of Arab terrorist enters in Pakistan. And Pakistan becomes the nursery of Muslim extremists. Zia made every possible effort to make Pakistan pure Sharia country. Even after the Afghan-soviet war these Mujahideen were never disarmed, later on these groups were activated as Lashkar-e-Taiba, Harkut-ul-Mujahideen, Saipa-e-Shaba and some of them join the Al-Qaeeda led by Bin Laden.
In 1996, Afghanistan was taken over by these Mujahideens (Talibans). They spread from Pakistan into Afghanistan and formed a Government as the ISLAMIC EMIRATE OF AFGHANISTAN. It gained the Diplomatic recognition from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab emirates. Mohammad Omar (Mullah Omar) who was the Spiritual leader of Taliban, becomes its Amirul momineen. Al-Qaeda supported the Taliban with thousands of fighters from Pakistan and other parts of the Arab world. They were financially supported by Saudi Arabia. The Taliban and their allies committed massacres against Afghan civilians, denied UN food supplies, burned vast areas of fertile land and destroying tens of thousands of homes during their rule from 1996 to 2001.
After the 9/11 tragedy, the U.S. and its allies declared war against the Taliban (Terrorists) and called it a “war on terror”. In December 2001, they were removed from power by the U.S. and its allies. The Taliban fled and went into hiding only to later regroup as an insurgency movement against the Karzai Administration and the NATO-led International Security Assistance force (ISAF).
After 9/11 Pakistan also supported the U.S. The Pakistani Army and political government supported the U.S. and its allies in the fight against the Taliban.
On 28th March, 2013 Pakistani Intelligence agencies told the Supreme Court that Pakistan has lost 49,000 lives since the attacks on World Trade Center and Pentagon in the United States on September 11, 2001. More than 24,000 people, both civilians and troops were killed in terrorist attacks during the period between 2001 and 2008. The last five years have proved costlier, in human terms. Another 25,000-plus people died during military offensives against Taliban insurgents in the restive tribal regions since 2008. At least 49,000 people, armed forces have suffered 15,681 casualties while fighting Taliban militants in the tribal areas since 2008 – with 2009 being the deadliest year for them.
Since 2008, almost 9,000 people and security men were killed by bombers. As many as 5,152 civilians have been killed, 5,678 injured, in bomb blasts and suicide attacks since 2008. According to the report, there have been 235 suicide hits, 9,257 rocket attacks and 4,256 bomb explosions in the last five years. More than 200 members of tribal peace committees, or Peace Lashkars – including volunteers and chieftains – were also killed along with 275 wounded in targeted attacks by Taliban in the last three years.
The report also revealed that 1,030 schools and colleges were destroyed by Taliban insurgents in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa from 2009 to 2013.
Since 2008 to 2013, 1,479 soldiers were killed and 5,745 others were injured. The report said that those who died include 675 men of the paramilitary Frontier Corps while 1,978 others were injured.
A total of 1,717 policemen lost their lives in five years.
Suffering of Religious Minorities in Pakistan, After 9/11
The Original Constitution of Pakistan did not discriminate against Religious minorities in Pakistan but the Amendments made by the Military ruler Zia-ul-Haq has awakened the Islamization and promotes extremism in the society. The controversial Hudood Ordinance and Sharia Courts have given so much strengthen to all the radical Muslims. Later on, when Muhammad Nawaz Sharif took charge as elected Prime Minister of Pakistan, he enforced Shariat Bill in May 1991, and promoted the Anti-Christian Elements in the society. The Amendment made by Zia-ul-Haq – and empowerment provided by the Sharif’s Government – created new war between the Religious minorities in Pakistan. This whole system de-stabilized the peace and harmony, putting Christians and other Religious minorities into a hellish situation. Minorities who were already in a grave situation after these implications were put into fire. After 9/11, Christians and other minorities went through a hard time. Muslim extremists backed by the Taliban ideology, made their lives miserable. Hundreds of attacks have been faced by Christians, Hindu’s, Ahemdi’s and Shia’s in last 5 years.
Christians who played a vital role in the development of Pakistan are now leaving Pakistan for the security of their lives. During the last 8 months, thousands of Christians left Pakistan and took refuge in THAILAND, SRILANKA, MALAYSIA and other South Asian countries, waiting for the decision of UNHCR. Thousands of Hindus migrated to India last year. Hundreds of thousands of Shia- and Ahmedis have already left Pakistan and the rest are making efforts to leave the country.
How dialogues will effect Religious Minorities in Pakistan.
A country, which has a long history of Brutal killings of innocent people and targeting and demolishing places of worship of Minorities, is now heading towards the enforcement of Sharia demanded by the Taliban, which has a history of hating other Religions / faiths. The Taliban is now actually having serious dialogue with the current Government of Pakistan.
One of the examples of their hatred for other religion is that while they were in the power in Afghanistan, they destroyed the Buddha statues:
If these talks will be successful, then there will be no Church or any place of Worship for the Minorities, just like in Saudi Arabia, which is ruled by the same Sharia law the Taliban would like to impose on Pakistan. Saudi Arabia, which is providing the financial support to the Taliban, want to create an Islamic Emirate State in accordance with Sharia and the Taliban is their agent.
Over the last few years, it has been observed that several cases of blasphemy have been registered against the minorities in Pakistan. If the Sharia law is imposed – as demanded by the Taliban – there will be no end to the persecution of these innocent people. Those who have already been falsely accused of blasphemy and who are sitting in jails, will be given death sentences without any further trials.
We have even seen the extremism at its peak in this modern time. Two Christian brothers were shot in the courtyard, two died while in the police custody. One Lahore High court judge Arif Iqbal Hussain Bhatti was killed on 17th October, 1997 after acquitting Salamat Masih, 14, and Rehmat Masih, 46, on February 23, 1995 of having committed blasphemy.
My apprehension is that after the implementation of the Sharia demand by Taliban, there will be no place for minorities in Pakistan. Even the Modern Muslim will be in great trouble.

Talk about stone cold, wetting their pants fear… all you have to do is read HuffPo to see Progressives shrilly denouncing Ted and Rafael Cruz. It’s reminiscent of a vampire shrinking from the cross.
Starting out with what the Marxists consider to be a slam, they inadvertently win over the majority of America by incredulously showcasing the standing ovations that Rafael Cruz gets when he compares Obama to Fidel Castro. Arguably, one of the finest speakers of our time, Rafael pulls no punches and tells the truth. Something that is anathema to the Leftists. He should know a dictator when he sees one, Rafael Cruz is from Cuba.
The truth hurts you miscreants:
“He acts no different than that bearded guy I left behind in Cuba,” the father of firebrand U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz told a packed tea party gathering.
The article also notes that Cruz is a pastor, as if that is somehow disparaging. Then they have the unmitigated gall to compare him to that collectivist snake, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Laying out how Ted Cruz will have to distance himself form his firebrand father as Obama distanced himself from Wright. Not. Going. To. Happen. Comparing Cruz to Wright is like comparing light to dark and proclaiming they are the same. No one is listening to this claptrap anymore and just about everyone in America sees these lies for what they are – Marxist propaganda and smears.
Next up on the piece’s sly insinuations and contemptuous belittlement comes the poke at Rafael’s age – he’s 74. Well, most of the Progressives are that age and none are as sharp as Cruz – not even close. Pelosi has had one too many face lifts as has Kerry – both are shy a brick or two of a load. Then there’s Biden who doesn’t even have a load. Reid is senile as is McCain. And the list goes on. Then they attack his lack of hair, his ‘spectacles’ and his false teeth. What are they, five? You boys and girls might want to take a good, long old look in the mirror… Cruz is a handsome and strong presence for any age. Compared to the majority of Congress, he’s a fashion model.
As for Cruz in the past calling for sending Obama “back to Kenya” and accusing him of being an “outright Marxist” out to “destroy all concept of God,” I fail to see anything wrong with it. It’s not racist to tell one to go back to where they spent part of their childhood. It’s not slanderous to call a Marxist a Marxist. And could it be any more obvious that Obama hates all things Godly?
Look at this quote as they swipe at Cruz through his father:
His son, the conservative grassroots darling and often-mentioned 2016 presidential prospect, also relishes controversy — thrusting himself into the teeth of last year’s government shutdown battle. But public officials, even combative ones, are usually wary of loose-cannon family members as too politically dangerous.
Ted Cruz loves his father. He considers him a Godly man, not a loose cannon. Cruz is a Tea Party darling and stands an excellent chance of being president – why? Because he dares to stand against government tyranny and because he comes from a family that knows oppression firsthand. Something Americans are just now having a close encounter with. Progressives are shocked that Cruz would let his father speak for him, campaign for him. More to the point, Rafael scares them to death with his eloquence and plain spoken truth. Warriors come in all ages and types and by the way the Left is reacting to the Cruz duo, you know that they are a threat to them.
What a bunch of arrogant fools. Dissing anyone who believes in God and is against Marxism. They go on in the article alluding to monies spent on Rafael traveling and speaking for Ted Cruz as somehow shifty. Wow! That takes a set, considering all the money they have stolen from us and still are. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. By the way, Ted Cruz is not his father and his father is not him. Each is entitled to their own opinions and their own actions. If you people feel the need to blame the son for trumped up accusations against the father, then you really shouldn’t have chosen Obama, should you?
No truer words could be spoken than what Rafael Cruz has to say:
“I have a burden for this country and I feel that we cannot sit silent,” he said in an interview as he shook nearly every hand in a crowd of 300-plus following his speech in Madisonville, a tiny town known as Texas’ mushroom capital because of a popular local festival.
He’s also unapologetic: “It’s time we stop being politically correct and start being biblically correct.”
The story of Rafael Cruz and what he believes is stirring and passionate:
Rafael Cruz fled Cuba in 1957 after being jailed under dictator Fulgencio Batista. He arrived in America with $100 sewed in his underwear and worked his way through the University of Texas as a dishwasher. He says he thought of Castro as Cuba’s savior until the state started seizing private property.
It’s a story Ted Cruz supporters know by heart — both men repeat it at nearly all public appearances.
“He’s the real thing. He’s not just a front. He believes what he says,” said Henry Churchwell, a retiree who heads the Madison County Tea Party.
In the United States, Rafael Cruz said, he became concerned in the 1970s that “the government was starting to impose socialism,” and was delighted when his son went to Princeton and Harvard and earned a law degree, saying the schools needed stronger conservative voices.
The elder Cruz told the Madisonville crowd that the death panels that “everybody maligned” when former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin spoke out about them have now begun under the White House’s signature health care law. If Republicans don’t “retake the Senate in 2014, I don’t know if we have a country in 2016,” he said.
When he meets with preachers, Rafael encourages them to endorse conservative candidates from the pulpit — in defiance of federal bans on nonprofits engaging in political campaigning.
“I lost my freedom once,” he said of leaving Cuba for good “and I’m not going to lose it again. I’d rather die trying.”
Try as they might, the Marxist Progressives will not be able to destroy the Cruz family. Father and son are striking terror into Progressive hearts and I am thrilled over it. Giddy up… 2014 and 2016 are going to be incredible battles. Time to clean House and Senate. Time to elect a true conservative Constitutionalist as president. The Progressives will be thunderstruck by the Tea Party. Good times.
And coming soon… The Cruz Coalition’s web site will go live. Envisioned by Trevor Loudon, we have teamed up to bring you a slate for a dream team to reinstate the vision and principles of our Founding Fathers. Join the fight – join the Cruz Coalition.
