Obama goes after the CIA / Special prosecutor to investigate CIA / Obama starts special "interrogation unit" / Remembering the "Lion of the Senate" / Attack on Democrat HQ staged by leftists / Teen could still die by Sharia / "Christians" celebrating Ramadan / Democracy can't stop radical Islam 

WHITE HOUSE INTERROGATION UNIT - Suddenly President Barack Obama changed course and directed his Justice Department to attack the Central Intelligence Agency. Not only was a "special prosecutor" appointed to investigate the "crimes" of the CIA, but the responsibility to interrogate "high profile detainees" was taken away from the CIA. A special "interrogation unit" will be set up and run directly by the Obama Administration. Although the unit will he housed by the Justice Department, it will be operated directly by the White House. This is stuff straight out of third world African dictatorships. Presidents and Prime Ministers in democratic states do not operate police powers; that is up to separate agencies that are independent. My video taped comments on this development can be seen on YouTube.

USA: TOO BIG TO FAIL? - Is the Obama Administration creating a government so large that it is doomed to failure? When huge banks and large corporations such as GM are in trouble the government bails them out. But what happens when a government takes on too much and goes broke? I have written a lengthy column on this issue, which appeared in World Net Daily this week and has had wide distribution. Click here to read

THE LION DEPARTS - The so-called "Lion of the Senate," Edward Kennedy, has died. Conservatives have rushed to praise the multi-millionaire Kennedy who worked for decades to force the middle class in America to lower their lifestyles so that welfare recipients, drunkards and drug addicts could live better lives. He worked hard for homosexual marriage, federally funded abortions, and the shutdown of refineries and factories in the United States. Conservatives who work on Capitol Hill including myself will indeed remember his legacy.

ATTACK ON DEMOCRAT HQ STAGED - Eleven windows were broken at the Democratic party Headquarters in Denver, and immediately the head of the party there called it a hate crime against President Obama and his health care proposals. Just one problem with that: the vandalism was done by a transgendered anarchistic who has been on the payroll of .... the Democrat party. Read the details here. Separately, a man showing up at town-hall meetings with a poster of Obama made to look like Hitler was actually a Democrat organizer who had helped pass out literature for liberal candidates. A blogger has posted all the details and photos. Click here. The Nazi signs and attacks began shortly after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a leftwing lunatic, accused conservatives of terror tactics. Her remarks and the staged phony attacks are obviously connected. Before the Internet, dirty tricks like this worked for the far left because liberal newspapers like the New York Times would support their charges. Now bloggers and Internet journalists who have access to photos and other materials easily expose the dirty tricks.

THE AUGUST RECESS - Both the House and Senate have now gone into August recess and will not return until after Labor Day, which falls on September 7th this year.

TEEN COULD STILL DIE BY SHARIA - Rifqa Bary, age 17, is safe for perhaps a month in Florida, but her Muslim father, who has threatened to kill her, may still get her back. The State of Florida furnished an attorney for the father because he says he is indigent, despite living in an affluent neighborhood and running a high end jewelry business. Read more. He can't kill Rifga in the United States now; there has been too much media attention. He has apparently closed his business in anticipation of moving to a Muslim nation where his murder of her will be deemed "honorable." Christian Post story

CHRISTIANS TO CELEBRATE RAMADAN? - Leaders of the "emergent church" movement within evangelical Christianity are "observing" the Muslim month of Ramadan. (NOTE: Those who call themselves part of the "emergent church" are convinced that the Commandments of God and the words of Jesus must be reinterpreted to meet modern standards. ) Read more WND story

CAN DEMOCRACY DEFEAT RADICAL ISLAM? - I have met and talked with Dr. Tawfik Hamid several times. Dr. Tawfik Hamid (aka Tarek Abdelhamid) calls himself an Islamic thinker and reformer. While he presents some very interesting papers, I disagree with him that Islam can be reformed. Hamid was at one time an "Islamic extremist," a member of a terrorist Islamic organization called Jemaah Islamiyyah. Another member of that organization was Dr. Ayman Al-Zawaherri. Zawaherri who later became second in command of Al-Qaeda. Dr. Hamid's latest Newsmax article, Democracy Will Not End Radical Islam is well worth reading.
