GOP Success in 2010 Would End the Progressive Agenda in America

And this comes straight from the horse’s mouth or petute, depending on which end he knew was up at the time. According to Joe Biden, if Democrats lose 35 House seats in 2010, it’s doomsday for Brother O’s agenda.

“If they take them back, this is the end of the road for what Barack and I are trying to do,” Biden said at a fundraiser for Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) in Greenville, Delaware.

Republicans need 40 additional seats to regain control of the House. Currently Democrats hold 49 seats in districts that Senator John McCain (R-Ariz) won in last year’s presidential election.

Biden gives the Republicans only “one shot” to stop Brother O’s agenda, and if they fail “the dam is going to break” … letting loose “[a]ll the hidden Republicans that don’t have the courage to vote the way they want to vote because of pressure from the party” to merge with the collective stream of Democrats and form a new era of bipartisanship.

Biden reserves the term bipartisanship for those Republicans who are willing to set aside free market principles and ideas of limited government to capitulate to Democrat desires to control people through a centralized government and a planned economy.  Republicans who hold to their principles and oppose statism are condemned as hatemongering, racist obstructionists.

Nonetheless, Biden’s assessment of the 2010 landscape is interesting. He readily admits Brother O’s attempt to increase the power and size of government to control the private sector could mark the end of the progressive agenda. And it could happen, but only if enough people will do what must be done before it’s too late.

QUID PRO QUO

ACORN Housing Corporation Helping Illegals Get Home Loans

John Fund of The Wall Street Journal tells Fox & Friends that Acorn has been helping illegal aliens receive home loans for years, and exposes the government’s role in helping the loans go through.

San Diego ACORN office publicly announced a partnership with Citibank to help illegal aliens get no interest, no down payment home loans. The organization provided illegals with tax payer identification numbers to bypass the need for social security numbers.

In 2005, Citibank and ACORN Housing Corporation – which has received tens of millions of tax dollars under the Bush administration alone — began recruiting Mexican illegal aliens for a lucrative program offering loans with below-market interest rates, down-payment assistance and no mortgage insurance requirements. Instead of Social Security numbers required of law-abiding citizens, the program allows illegal alien applicants to supply loosely-monitored tax identification numbers issued by the IRS.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that “undocumented residents” comprise a vast market representing a potential sum of “$44 billion in mortgages.” Citibank enlarged its portfolio of subprime and other risky loans. ACORN enlarged its membership rolls.

The program now operates in Miami; New York City; Jersey City, N.J.; Baltimore; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; Bridgeport, Conn., and at all of ACORN Housing’s 12 California offices.

San Diego ACORN officials advised illegal alien recruits that their bank partners would take applicants who had little or no credit, or even “nontraditional records of credit, such as utility payments and documentation of private loan payments,” which is the type of lending that fueled the subprime lending crisis.

Has Their Time Come?

By Payne Williams

This Friday there will be a national prayer gathering of Muslims on the west front of the U.S. Capitol Building. They are expecting at least 50,000 to attend from mosques all across America. They will gather to pray from 4:00 AM until 7:00 PM. The gathering will take place by the site where U.S. Presidents have been inaugurated since 1981. The organizers say that it was Obama’s inauguration speech in January and his speech broadcast from Egypt in June that gave them the idea for this prayer gathering on Capitol Hill…

…rain anyone?

From the Islam On Capitol Hill website:

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH….

The objective of this gathering is to invite the Muslim Communities and friends of Islam to express and illustrate the wonderful diversity of Islam. We intend to manifest Islam’s majestic spiritual principals as revealed by Allah to our beloved prophet Muhammad (PEACE BE UPON HIM) of Arabia. Likewise; we intend to inspire a new generation of Muslim to work for the greater good of all people. We shall serve all people, regardless of race, religion or national origin.

ON THIS DAY….

  • The Athan will be chanted on Capitol Hill, echoing off of the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and other great edifices that surround Capitol Hill
  • Thousands of Muslims from all races, creeds, colors and ethnicities will gather for the sole purpose of prayer
  • Bonds of friendship will be formed between those in attendance, both Muslims and Non-Muslims
  • Muslim youth will experience tours of the Library of Congress and the Supreme Court.
  • The peace, beauty and solidarity of Islam will shine through America’s capitol.

A DAY OF ISLAMIC UNITY…

OUR TIME HAS COME

The event was organized by two leaders of the Dar-ul-Islam mosque in Elizabeth, New Jersey. It “will not include political speeches or placards, just prayer, said Hassen Abdellah, president of Dar-ul-Islam and a main organizer of the event.” From NJ.com — Elizabeth mosque organizes national prayer gathering for Muslims in Washington, D.C.:

Mosque members have been working since July to organize the event, through e-mails, phone calls and visits to mosques and Muslim Students Associations in different states.

Another New Jersey imam, Abdul Malik, is co-organizer of the event.

Just a reminder of how all these prayerful people really feel:

Dr. Lubaina Bhatti Ahmed was an accomplished, professional woman, in her late thirties, a wife, and a mother living in St. Clairsville, Ohio. In 1999, after suffering years of terrible beatings by her husband, she left him. He killed her for his honor.

In August 2003, Saudi student Mohammed Ali Alayed and Morrocan Jewish student Ariel Sellouk were students at Houston Community College in Houston, Texas. One evening after they returned home from socializing together, Alayed slashed his friend’s throat, nearly decapitating him. Both young men were 23 years old.

In January 2005 an Egyptian family of Coptic Christians living in New Jersey was slaughtered by militant Islamic Americans. Hossam Armanious, his wife Amal Garas and their daughters, Monica (8) and Sylvia (15) were brutally murdered for being outspoken critics of Islam. The family was bound and tortured, before their throats were slit in accord with the instructions for executing nonbelievers, as detailed in the Koran.

Living in Orchard Park, a suburb south of Buffalo, New York, 37 year-old Aasiya Z. Hassan got an order of protection against her husband after years of violent abuse in February of this year. He beheaded her for his honor. The irony — together they managed Bridges TV, a station whose mission was “to become a unifying force that can help people understand our diverse world through education and entertainment.”

There is a long list of honor killings and religious killings by American Muslims who, until the crime, appear to be living peacefully and normally among us. We ignore this at our peril.
