    ” “If God and moral values, the difference between good and evil, remain in darkness, then all other ‘lights,’ that put such incredible technical feats within our reach, are not only progress but also dangers that put us and the world at risk..”

    “With regard to material things, our knowledge and our technical accomplishments are legion, but what reaches beyond, the things of God and the question of good, we can no longer identify,” Benedict added, saying that faith was the “true enlightenment.”

    Blessed Easter to the S&L Family.

    It’s time for Candidates who most likely won’t win, to use their time constructively, and for once speak out against Obama. They need to forget about winning and go after the America’s strongest enemy Obama.

    Obama is a imminent dangerous threat to America.

    The only thing I can tell you, Ken, is that Romney came by here in January. I think it was the 13th, the middle of the month. And I met with him after the show. It was about 4:30. I met with him for almost an hour, and he left here for a huge fundraiser a mile down the road, mile and a half. And during that conversation — I’ve mentioned this to you — he said to me that he wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up being a one-term president because he’s got to shake things up. This country can’t go the direction it’s going or his children and grandchildren and nobody else’s will have a future. When he was talking about that, he sounds just like you and me.

    He sounds just like you and me when we talk about it. He was very affirmative in his acknowledgement to me of the threats posed by Obama and the Democrats to this country. If you had been in that conversation, you would not have doubted his conservatism at that moment..

    There are no more excuses now. Well, there are. That’s why I guess I want to know what the excuses are gonna be if this doesn’t go the way they have it planned. If this doesn’t pan out to big-time electoral victory the way the establishment has it figured, then what will their excuse be? And I think I know. I think that if this campaign goes on and if it results in Obama winning, I think what the establishment is going to do is blame us. They’re gonna blame us conservatives for once again being too rigid and too demanding and too narrow and unrealistic and all this, and telling us that we’re the reason that Obama won.

    “If we’d-a just got behind it,” and so forth… Which, of course, will be bogus..

    RUSH: I will just say this: If the Republican establishment is not careful, they are going to destroy themselves in the process of this campaign. If they screw this up… We’ve never had a better chance to win than this. If they screw this up, folks… I’ll develop this more tomorrow.


    Here we go..

    How’d we miss the Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt went to Washington. They really were there April 3 2012, but the white house agenda’s sites did not mention this visit and the tours the MB were given.

    The Gate Stone Insitute: The Muslim Brotherhood Goes to Washington

    by Irfan Al-Alawi Apri 11, 2012


    Representatives of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood (MB) arrived in Washington DC on April 3, an event that was predictable after the pan-Islamic movement won pluralities in the recent elections in Tunisia, Morocco, and Egypt. The aim of their journey to the Potomac was to improve the organization’s image as a leading force in radical Islam. …meetings with U.S. officials in Washington as well as a conference organized by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.” In reality, all five parties at the Carnegie conference were branches of the MB: from Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, and Libya.

    The MB acolytes were also favored by meetings with officials of the U.S. National Security Agency.

    Since the fall of Hosni Mubarak a year ago, however, the Brotherhood has already alienated Egypt’s non-Islamist citizens by its devious behavior:….

    Both Al-Shater and Abul-Futouh could benefit from the disqualification in the Egyptian presidential race of the radical fundamentalist television preacher, Sheikh Hazem Salah Abu Ismael. Sheikh Abu Ismael, an independent Wahhabi (so-called “Salafi,” the extreme form of Islam imposed on Saudi Arabia), wants to remake Egypt in the image of Saudi Arabia and Iran. It is likely, however, that he will be removed from the electoral list on the grounds that his mother acquired American citizenship.

    ((((note by reader. The extremist Islam might be disqualified from election because his mother acquired
    American citizenship!!!!!!!? Oh great, the least is the muslim extremist powerful Wahhabi will visit his mother in America. How did she become a citizenship of the U.S. Is it a ploy? Or if her son visits will he chop her head off for her change in status.

    The monsters becoming a U.S. citizen will disqualify him? We elected a muslim U.S. President who along with is mother and sister were Indonesia citizens.

    Brotherhood intrigues have provoked concern among both Egyptian liberals and Coptic Christians. Both recently walked out of discussions on a new constitution, charging that the MB and other Islamists dominated the proceedings.

    These included the predecessors of Ayatollah Khomeini (whom it inspired), the Saudi Wahhabis, and the South Asian jihadists.

    The MB has now reached the summit of its influence as a faction able to hypnotize Western leaders with its “moderate” idiom.

    But regardless of its honeyed words and the slick, updated, Westernized vocabulary of its travelling exponents, the Egyptian MB cannot, in its middle sectors, its base, and its fundamental outlook, change.


    By the way in Morocco has become a blood bath due muslim extremists.

    TN: One plus for Romney is he said he’d build the largest and best military in the world. Let’s just hope another Obama who wants communism ever get’s elected.

    I said after the end of Clinton’s term, that he allowed muslim terrorism to grow so much, we’d never recover.
    Things got worse with Obama’s foreign affairs of muslim loving. And why when the muslims are killing people all over the world, would Obama make military cuts down to that of nearly a century, and half a century ago.

    Black man explains insanity over one black man’s death leading to “savages”


    He has a good point. Know a guy works at high security max dangerous prison. He says in spiffs and prison killings, when a minority kills another minority it’s safe. But, if it involves a cracker, then it turns into a prison riot.
    Martin Luther King taught peace.
    There are so many injustices and killings in this country, and this shooting in Florida is the media’s flavor.

    No attention was given to a private Christian school of slaughtered students in America. No outrage
    that he was South Korean and not a U.S. Citizen. Viginia Tech’s killer was a Vietnam immigrant.
