Rioters at the convention


Ok, my first blog.

I have a grown daughter who is 26, married and made me a grandpa. I have an 18 year old daughter who I just left at college a couple weeks ago. And I have a son who is 15, who at this precarious age is finding out about himself. Three kids who are each unique, and different, and all whom I love more than life itself. I am watching and listening to the convention on TV, and I have to wonder just what this country is coming to for my kids. There are idiots who in the name of "protest" are breaking windows, throwing human waste, and attacking cops and people. Do they honestly think these activities change things for the better?

I am far from a perfect parent. But I never ever raised my kids to disrespect authority. This is the greatest country in the world. We have freedoms others can only dream of. Freedom is not destroying property in protest. Freedom is better than that. I work with a 30 something guy who keeps telling me that this country is no good and he just has to find a way to get out. The next time he tells me that, my response will be that I will donate the money to buy him a one way ticket to anywhere in the world. And that I'm not kidding, and he is welcome to never come back.

Entry #1

Seems people who have no respect for authority also have no respect for themselves.

Great comments ... congrats on your grandbaby, also your other children. Not easy raising kids with as much garbage as they're pelted with today from our exemplary 'superstars.'

Ask yourself who benefits from the violence? Do the thousands of legitimate protesters benefit from violence within their ranks? NO. Do those who wish to silence legitimate protest and the causes they represent benefit? YES.

False flag violence is THE most effective method of swaying public opinion. Always ask yourself who benefits (cui bono) before jumping to conclusions as to who is behind it.

Oh I have asked myself that question of who benefits. I believe the answer is these nut cases like attention in the name of protest. Destroying other people's property is not legitimate.

Nobody is being silenced in this country. Anyone can protest, these idiots are out there destroying property for the sake of feeling good about themselves. The LEGITIMATE protestors, if they had any sense, would reign in and shun these morons. The problem is though, how do peaceful people deal with a bunch of thugs? Answer: Police.   These peaceful anti-everything let's all get along protestors don't realize they are there by the grace of our military, police, etc. which protect us all.

For comparison's sake in another country called Russia, last week, an activist which ran an anti-govt. web site was picked up by the police, shot in the head and dumped on the side of the road. Hmmmm....wow.....just imagine the reaction of the Ruskie authorities to a protest like the one in Minnesota. They might be using something more than pepper spray and batons, and then the anarchists may have accidental permanent disappearances.

There are elements on the left here that want to quash free thought and free speech with the fairness doctrine, you see the way Nancy Peloski wants to discuss issues is by decree, no way no how. This is the way it happens in real totalitatrian states, slowly, incrementally, then bam too late.

These violent protestors don't care about any issue they just want anarchy. What a better place on Earth do to it, without fear of disappearing permanently.

The people who were committing the violence were not arrested. One guy was jumping on top of a police car and he escaped (???). There were some who were picking up newspaper kiosks and throwing them in the streets. There were a couple of them smashing storefront windows. There were some that were attacking delegate buses. How could these "protesters" escape from the overwhelming police force around them? There are numerous examples of peaceful protesters, reporters, photographers and videographers being arrested, but I have yet to see one video of these violent anarchists being arrested.

I'm open...please provide me a link to a video that shows the act of violence and the subsequent arrest of the individuals involved.

In many cases those 'idiots' are agent provocateurs. Their job is to give the police an excuse to move in on the crowds. They will be quietly whisked away without punishment. Like at the SPP protests in Montebello Quebec. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLTLSq03jmk

My wife got this e-mail from a friend. Tomorrow I'm checking this stuff out.

This election has me very worried. So many things to consider. About a year ago I would have voted for Obama. I have changed my mind three times since than.   I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to another. I must say this drives my husband crazy. But, I feel if you view MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle ground to work with. About six months ago, I started thinking "where did the money come from for Obama". I have four daughters who went to College, and we were middle class, and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard and there were lot s of student loans.

I started looking into Obama's life.   

Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California . He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to &nb sp;his studies. "Barry" (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan . During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a "round the world" trip.   Stopping to see his mother inIndonesia, next   Hyderabad in India , three weeks in Karachi ,   Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate's family, then off to Africato visit his father's family. My question - Where did he get the money for this trip? Nether I, nor any one of my children would have had money for a trip like this wh en they where in college. When he came back he started school at Columbia   University in New York . It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack - not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at   Columbia ? It's not cheap! to say the least. Where did he get money for   ;tuition? Student Loans? Maybe. After Columbia , he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer for $12,000. a year.   Why Chicago ? Why not New York ? He was already living in New York .

By "chance" he met Antoin "Tony" Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria , and a real estate developer in Chicago . Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery this year.   Rezko, was named "Entrepreneur of the Decade" by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association". About two years later, Obama entered Ha rvard Law School . Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard LawSchool? Where did he get the money for Law School ? More student loans? After Law school, he went back to Chicago . Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what? They represented "Rezar" which Rezko's firm.   Rezko was one of Obama's first major financial contributors when he ran for office in   Chicago . In 2003, Rezko threw an earl y fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with "seed money" for his U.S. Senate race. In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwoood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). With ALL those Student Loans - Where did he get the money for the property? On the same day Rezko's wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama's new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko.

Now, we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama's boss. She is now Obama's chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz , Iran ! Do we see a pattern here? Or am I going crazy?

On May 10, 2008 ;The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was "sacked" after the press found out he was having regular contacts with "Hamas", which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran . This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama's visit to Iraq , he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will "Take care of things".

Oh, and by t he way, remember the college roommates that where born in Pakistan ?   They are in charge of all those "small" Internet campaign contribution for Obama.   Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class in this country? Or could it be from the   Middle East ?

And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2008, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on "This Week" with George Stephanapoulos. Obama on talking about his religion said, "My Muslim faith". When questioned, "he make a mistake". Some mistake!

All of the above information I got on line. If you would like to check it - Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times - Obama visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times - September 7, 2008; The Times May 10, 2008.

Now the BIG question - If I found out all this information on my own, Why haven't all of our "intelligent" members of the press been reporting this?

A phrase that keeps ringing in my ear - "Beware of the enemy from within"!!!
