I can’t believe nobody has guessed what went down. Do you think Stanley McCrystal would do something so stupid and irresponsible like an interview with a magazine who’s had Keith Richards stoned out of his mind on the cover? Puuuleezzz! This was a sacrifice fly. He took one for the team. He knew old yellow wouldn’t give him what he wanted when it came to troops , rules of engagement or the very fuzzy pull out date. So he decided to fall on his sword knowing full well President empty suit would have no choice but to fire him. Without “Stan the Man” Barry had only one viable option. Betray Us. That’s what Barry used to call him when he was a Senator for about ten minutes in between campaign breaks.General David Petraeus. The Iraqi commander who pulled it together and made an impossible situation work against all the naysayers and one in particular Senator Barak Obama. Now for 30 seconds Obama looks like he’s finally grown a set only to realize he got caught by the oldest trick in the ring. The Rope a Dope. Except this isn’t going to last 8 rounds like the Rumble in the Jungle did. This costly move to him personally will forever haunt him. The General has got him by the short hairs. Whatever the General wants the General gets or else he walks…then what happens? Complete chaos and panic. Taliban is rejuvenated tribal leaders are terrified the troops in harms way are left totally without leadership which equals certain death and the entire nation and our allies blame the O-man. This will make the spill in the Gulf look like a leaky faucet.
Petraeus will get the glory as long as Obama does what he is told but to me it was that brave soldier whom I’ll never forget Stanely McCrystal his unselfishness and his love of country makes me proud as Hell to be an American.
The Imam Rauff who is charged with leading the Cordoba Initiative in the building of the Ground Zero Mosque took some serious flack last week while during an interview on the radio he would not get specific about the 5 million dollars of cash he came up with to start the wheels in motion for the 13 story Mosque located no more than a hundred feet where where Satan reminded us all on 911 he is alive and well.
Another disturbing part of the interview was his point blank refusal to label Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist organizations. His estimated response reasoning was that he is getting his funding from these groups and to label them as such the water spicket of funding would dry up making it impossible to build anyway.
Yet with all this evidence they are still going forward unless we stop them. I have several interviews of protesters and supporters of the initiative that will give you accurate and fair arguments on both sides of the issue.
I wanted to give both sides an objective voice on the subject and after listening to both sides I feel more strongly than ever that this project should not get built. Please let us know what you think.
Friday the 25th of June from 1 to 2 there will be a gathering of protesters to stop the building of the Ground Zero Mosque. Filmmakers and other blog and web sites will attend. On the attachment above you will be able to see some of the anger and rancor it raised during a Community Board 1 meeting held on this very issue.
The location of Friday’s event will be at Park Place and Broadway just up the block from the proposed sight. Also on the 27th in Brooklyn at 2 pm a meeting will be held for those opposing the Mosque as well at Cirro’s on Avenue X run by the head of the Brooklyn Tea Party Dr. John Press.
You never even hear people say the “Twin Towers anymore. Now it’s replaced by Ground Zero. An ugly name for a dark day. Please protest this desecration.
My prayers and well wishes go out to my fellow tradesman who make their livings by fishing or operating on the oil rigs. I know from past experiences the pain and sacrifice that lay ahead for you all. The reason I do is because for the last 2 years the Construction Industry has had its’ own economic disaster to deal with. No one is building. All the cash cows have been hoarding their monies. Reason being is the Obama Administration.
New York by tradition is a Democratic town. The present group in charge is following lock-step with this anti-American, anti-private sector, anti-capitalist Administration who by the way has never generated a single dollar worth of economic growth in their mysterious past. Only 7% of the Cabinet have ever run a business at all. The roach coach coffee truck on Broadway and Wall street have more business experience then the entire Obama Administration.
The outlook is grim. We are taking major cuts across the board on our compensation packages as we continue to spend ourselves into oblivion and our Congress amazingly votes themselves 3 and 4 % raises. This election cycle cannot come fast enough. I continually receive phone calls fro former employees begging for work because they are getting thrown out of their house or grown men crying due to the fact their wife and family is leaving them because they can no longer provide for them. Good luck fellow blue collars down south as a famous politician once said” We feel your pain”unfortunately our leadership does not.
In Brooklyn on Atlantic Avenue at a local church supporters of the Mavi Marmara celebrated survivors of the confrontation at sea with Israeli soldiers. What happened during the boarding of that vessel was violent and ended in the death of 9 members of the Mavi Marmara. They are videos showing the soldiers being beaten with metal pipes and stabbed with makeshift shivs. One must wonder why a humanitarian aid ship would have such “Tools”.
Across the street from the celebration was a protest being held by Israeli supporters who were outraged at the media and the Administration for instantly coming down on the side of Flotilla and the overall disrespect that is being showed to Israel by Obama. Here you will see interviews from people a lot more informed then I on this subject. Please enjoy and pay attention what happens within the next few months will have incredible impact on our country and the world. God Bless
Location , location, location. These are the 3 most important things when buying real estate or opening up a business. Now thrown into the lexicon will be : The 3 most important things when opening up a recruitment center: symbolism, symbolism, symbolism. Islam is saturated with symbolism. This proposed “Victory Mosque” represents a triumphant defeat of the United States. It goes back hundreds of years. When Muslims conquered a territory their first order of business is to build a mosque. Building on the ashes of the vanquished people is their “Touchdown Dance” and this invigorates Muslims and inspires them to forge ahead to the ultimate goal line which is Shiria Law for all.
Imam Rauff had a hard time while being interviewed on WABC by Aaron Klein an investigative reporter. At the start of the confrontation I actually thought Aaron was in favor of the mosque until he started to pepper him with questions about funding. The Imam was clearly flustered taken completely off guard. Aaron was surgical in his questioning. Then came time for the most revealing moment. ” Would you consider the group Hamas a terrorist group”? He dodged and danced around the answer then came the next question ” What about the Muslim Brotherhood”? again he would not answer the question. Twice he was asked if 2 of the most famous and violent groups of terrorists were terrorists and both times he would not condemn either group. Suddenly his Arabian Sean Connery persona was vanishing along with the funding for his cursed Mosque if he did condemn these groups as terror organizations.
I know there is a lot going on in our nation right now but we are at war and I don’t mean just overseas I mean right here in our towns and cities. If they were truly genuine about building bridges and showing tolerance why not show it and just move the Mosque elsewhere? Why not?…Symbolism, Symbolism, Symbolism.
Today I was in my old neighborhood Bay Ridge Brooklyn. It was not a visit to a family member or an old friend it was to report my fellow Brooklnites are weighing in on the Ground Zero Mosque issue and the result is : They Ain’t Having It!
The gathering was small but a first step towards a movement I believe that will reverberate throughout the state. Hell this was how our Tea Party 365 started. A small gathering of like minded Americans who felt there was a need to stand up and be counted. Everyone I spoke with and interviewed shared one thing in common: The complete and utter disdain for this “Political Correctness”. Too much American blood has been spilled because of this cowardly tenant. The Imam Rauf and his Sean Connery Arabian style look coupled with his soft-spoken demeanor isn’t fooling this gang. The Dr. John Press who organized the rally today was a no-nonsense fella whose main concern was preserving freedom to himself, his family and the entire community. Who wouldn’t want a doctor like this guy?
I have compiled some interviews and some speeches that took place at the protest. One man was an Israeli soldier who had an amazing insight to exactly how the conquering Muslims behave. Also was some media people and retired cops. Check them out. When you hear it from a Brooklyn guy or gal you know absolutely where they stand…Enjoy and pay attention:
What a day. After the protest I took the kids and girlfriend shopping and to grab a bite and who do I run in to? A dear old friend I used to work with over 25 years ago. You know him as Vito the “Gay Hitman “from The Sopranos I know him as Joey “G” the best chef in Brooklyn. Joey and I use to work at a very exclusive establishment in Brooklyn called Nightfalls. He was the head chef and I was a miserable busboy. God did we work hard but had a million laughs. It’s times like that ,that make you the person you are today and it was great. You just didn’t know it until you get old. Well without our Constitution we would never have been able to do the things we did back then and with all my heart and soul I will protect it.
Let’s not forget we are waging 2 wars where soldiers are dying nearly everyday fighting for these freedoms that Shiria Law goes completely against and I will not disgrace them or their memory by allowing this Victory Mosque to be built. Good Luck and God Bless.
What a bunch of cowards. They were thousands of protesters who showed up to protest this disgraceful building of this Mosque right in the shadow of Ground Zero and not one representative or Mainstream Media outlet showed up. I bet if this had something to do with a scandal that showed Israel or Christianity in a bad light they would’ve been a media circus complete with Congressmen and Senators all lining up to take a chunk of P.R. out of the latest sacrificial lamb. You stinking cowards! It’s this type of behavior that got 13 killed in Fort Hood. When our Terrorism Czar John Brennan told the American people we are not at war with Islamists or Jihadists but the state of mind of Terrorism HUH? Is this fool for real? He thinks Jihad is a cleansing of one’s soul and community.
Has the whole world gone mad? These extremists end game is Shiria Law and that evil oppressive way is not Gay or Female friendly. To my liberal fools who think that would never happen here just look at London. Right now they have dozens of courts that are ruled by Shiria right now! They are sanctioned by the High Court. The equivalent to our Supreme Court. Here in the U.S. the American Academy of Pediatrics has given the condoning of the ritual nick. For those of you who are not familiar with this particular type of procedure it is the genital mutilation of the female baby. Female circumcision. Yes coming to shores by you….wait it’s already here.
Here’s some of the folks I talked to while there:
It’s so great to see young people out there defending their country’s honor and rights. The service men and women I spoke with are stunned that we would allow such a thing to happen. These young Americans are fighting for our freedoms and we are worried about being tolerant? There is over 2 thousand mosques in the U.S. and 2 hundred here in New York alone. How many churches and temples are in Iran or Syria?mmmmmmm oh yeah ZERO.
Check out crazy Kamal he is a riot. They thought he was with Al -Jezzera and chased him away but in fact he is a Christian. Check it out.
The fight is far from over this is only the beginning. I heard there is another protest in Brooklyn on Saturday on the 12th at McKinley Park by the Brooklyn Tea Party. I will be there hope you can make it too.
My first GOP Convention and I’m more confused than ever. I like Rick Lazio. I’ve interviewed him several times and have seen him at all the right Rallys and Protests and I got to tell ya..I couldn’t find one person last night who thought he was a good candidate or thought he had a chance against Cuomo. The fact that they had to go outside it’s own party to get a former Democrat to try and topple Lazio’s support befuddles me. Two days ago I had a boatload of confidence in the Republican Party and it’s stringent fiscal responsibility, smaller government, less spending and tax cuts agenda but today with all the fractures amongst the GOP I now worry about our supposed comeback.
How is it in this time of discontent we cannot find one candidate to unite the whole party? Carl Paladino from Buffalo the successful businessman who got beat up by the media due to some racy e mails has even managed to get some momentum going and is polling favorably amongst independents and conservatives. There is even a little known candidate named Ed Dunn who has been running his campaign out of his truck similar to the Scott Brown victory pick-up that helped him take the Kennedy seat. These are viable candidates in this time of anti-incumbency and the Republicans seem slow to recognize the potential.
My Maiden of Conservatism the stunning Monica Crowley wows the crowd at the convention last night
Knocks them dead with her warrior princess montra conservative -style.
Monica was amazing last night. Never pulling any punches and telling us her reason Obama took the White House and more importantly why we need to reclaim it. Take a peek:
I have some footage of Archbishop Timothy Dolan who was an inspiration last night and certainly proved that we are a Christian nation regardless of what our feckless begging, borrowing, bowing and apologizing Commander N Grief spews.
There were some moments of candor and good ol’ ball bustin’ over the Yankees and the Mets and even the Brooklyn Dodgers. Here’s some table footage:
After all of that I’m still confused. Why did they go with Lazio if nobody and I mean NOBODY thinks he can win? I’m going to quote someone whom I truly admire::”You don’t get elected by the people who like you, you get elected by the people who VOTE for you.” D.Webb Tea Party 365 Director and Radio Host The Grinder.
- Andy from Blue Collar Corner working with Project Shining City has a sit down talking politics with the good Doctor.
District 5 congressional seat is in play. Dr. James Milano pulled himself away from the E.R. to join Andy and Jeff Bruzzo from Project Shining City to talk of putting our 14 term rep Gary Ackerman into a Arlin Specter-like retirement. Incumbent fever has spiked and Mr. Ackerman is the quintesence of “politics as usual” but how will it play out against the conservative doctor who holds the party line on issues like smaller government, less spending and strict immigration and yes of course …… wait for it…..the total repeal and replacement of the entire Health Care bill that was rammed down the throats of the American people.
I think when Jeff and I sat down and questioned the Doctor he was forthcoming and honest. When you the view the interview please comment and send us your take. We here at Blue Collar Corner love to hear what’s on your mind and look for opinions on both sides of the political spectrum. Here at BCC your voice will be heard.
The GOP convention is in NYC this week and already the drama unfolds stay tuned for that scoop.
