Holy Land Foundation defendants guilty on all counts

A jury on Monday determined that the Holy Land Foundation and five men who worked with the Muslim charity were guilty of three dozen counts related to the illegal funneling of at least $12 million to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

The unanimous verdicts are a complete victory for the government, which streamlined its case after a mistrial last year, and worked hard to carefully educate jurors on the complex evidence presented in the massive case. Guilty verdicts were read on 108 separate charges.

The prosecution victory is also a major one for the administration of President George Bush, whose efforts at fighting terrorism financing in court have been troubled, even though the flow of funds seems to be effectively shut down.  Full article HERE

Obama: First Moves

By George Friedman – from Strafor.com

Three weeks after the U.S. presidential election, we are getting the first signs of how President-elect Barack Obama will govern. That now goes well beyond the question of what is conventionally considered U.S. foreign policy — and thus beyond Stratfor’s domain. At this moment in history, however, in the face of the global financial crisis, U.S. domestic policy is intimately bound to foreign policy. How the United States deals with its own internal financial and economic problems will directly affect the rest of the world.

One thing the financial crisis has demonstrated is that the world is very much America-centric, in fact and not just in theory. When the United States runs into trouble, so does the rest of the globe. It follows then that the U.S. response to the problem affects the rest of the world as well. Therefore, Obama’s plans are in many ways more important to countries around the world than whatever their own governments might be planning.

Big Government – Big Corporations – Traitors and the Enemies of America

Friends,
Greed, corruption, power is destroying America…..our Constitution is being scuttled, neutered one sentence, one article, one right at a time…the vast majority of America has no idea what is about to come crashing down on our once great republic.

A president-elect that may or may not be in compliance with qualification requirements outlined in the US Constitution and resists verifying his compliance; a Congress that has failed to uphold their “oath” of office allowing their own greed and personal ambition to over rule “America first”; elements of government doling out trillions of tax payer dollars helter-skelter to mismanaged corporations; voices of accountability are hushed because there may be some element of society offended; leadership in America now takes on the connotation of “incompetent, crook, unreliable, selfish, and yes, unAmerican; capitalism is being surrendered to socialism and fascism forces;  immoral behavior is well beyond Biblical descriptions of Sodom and Gomorrah; in short America is rudderless, simply steaming full-speed toward an eventual fatal crash.

Our citizens are led by people like Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson-Claus, Rep Barney Frank-Claus, Senator Chris Dodd-Claus, and many other “Claus” supporting the ills of America…all willing to pursue any cockamamie scheme or immoral approach to milk hundreds of billions of  taxpayer dollars to bail-out their favorite corporations while allowing others to survive or fail based on our capitalistic system mechanism. Will Paulson-Claus bail out Abercrombie and Fitch if they fail, who have  7000 more employees than General Motors?  What about GE, Wal-Mart, Target, to name a few that have more employees than individual car manufacturers…should they fail will a bail-out be forthcoming?   Is the Union the real problem at GM/Ford/Chrysler as many proclaim?  Have they forced an unreasonable employee entitlement package that’s bankrupting GM/Ford and Chrysler?  Whatever positive actions unions accomplished in the past has been totally overshadowed by the incestuous union organizer and CEO greed.

America has become a nation of moral cowards…if we oppose abortion we accept the condemnation of opposing women…it’s not about women it’s about a behavior that kills a baby; if we oppose homosexuality we accept condemnation that we don’t treat “gays” as people…it’s not opposition to the person but the immoral behavior;  if we oppose same-sex marriage we accept condemnation of opposing some constitutional guarantee that allows  humans to act in a manner unlike any other animal, mammal, etc on the face of the earth……there is no such moral or constitutional support; generally, America has been turned around from a moral, decent, character driven “shining city on the hill”nation, to one of Godless behavior, sliding rapidly into the pit of helplessness….all with a hand outstretched to government Santa Claus for rescue.

The evil of today not unlike the loud evil shouting of “kill him, kill him” over 2000 years ago, is drowning out the reality of America the Beautiful…there is only one hope…2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
