Muslim Iran to Execute Christian Pastor

What hell is it to live in a Theocracy?

Much of the Western World experienced that, centuries ago. Somehow we overcame that. It was called it an ENLIGHTENMENT.

My experience has shown me that to categorize all Muslims as a single practice, as defined by many is unfair to say the least. The horrors of Christianity past brought should make my point clear.

So how long is it going to take for Muslim Theocracies to get it?

Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s potential execution rallies U.S. Christians

WAHSINGTON — Religious freedom advocates rallied Wednesday (Sept. 28) around an Iranian pastor

 who is facing execution because he has refused to recant his Christian faith in the overwhelmingly Muslim country.

The pastor was found guilty of apostasy last year, and the conviction has been upheld by the Iranian Supreme Court. If carried out, the execution would mark the first time since 1990 that an Iranian pastor was killed for his Christian faith.

Occupy Wall Street, Union Backing

Talk about a recipe for disaster.

In a sign that it is shifting from a loose-knit fringe group to a bloc that could draw in mainstream America, the movement called Occupy Wall Street brought thousands of people to the streets of New York on Wednesday after major labor unions gave their backing to its anti-greed message.

Occupy Wall Street wins over union backing, more protesters


Give me a break. Anyone noticed what Unions did to Detroit and the automobile industry there?

Thank the Lord for Japanese who opened factories in Right to Work States.

Project Gunruner

Project Gunrunner has been in the news for quite some time, and finally the stink has hit the fan.

(CBS News)  WASHINGTON - Keeping American weapons from getting into the hands of Mexican gangs is the goal of a program called "Project Gunrunner." But critics say it's doing exactly the opposite. CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports on what she found.

TEXT accompanies VIDEO.

House Republicans are calling for a special counsel to determine whether Attorney General Eric Holder misled Congress during his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee on Operation Fast and Furious, Fox News has learned.

The question is whether Holder knowingly made false statements of fact under oath during a Judiciary Committee hearing on May 3. At the time, Holder indicated he was not familiar with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives program known as Fast and Furious until about April 2011.

"I'm not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks," Holder testified.

However, newly discovered memos suggest otherwise. For instance, one memo dated July 2010 shows Michael Walther, director of the National Drug Intelligence Center, told Holder that straw buyers in the Fast and Furious operation "are responsible for the purchase of 1,500 firearms that were then supplied to the Mexican drug trafficking cartels."


There are other sources which claim it is really much more serious for the Obama administration.

Like any political soap opera, just sit back and enjoy the story.

Fascinating article from the Wall Street Journal

The insanity of liberal leadership under the thumb of green activists is most mind boggling.

How North Dakota Became Saudi Arabia

Harold Hamm, the Oklahoma-based founder and CEO of Continental Resources,

 the 14th-largest oil company in America, is a man who thinks big. He came to Washington last month to spread a needed message of economic optimism: With the right set of national energy policies, the United States could be "completely energy independent by the end of the decade. We can be the Saudi Arabia of oil and natural gas in the 21st century."

Sounds interesting, no?

You'd expect an oilman to make the "drill, baby, drill" pitch. But since 2005 America truly has been in the midst of a revolution in oil and natural gas, which is the nation's fastest-growing manufacturing sector. No one is more responsible for that resurgence than Mr. Hamm. He was the original discoverer of the gigantic and prolific Bakken oil fields of Montana and North Dakota that have already helped move the U.S. into third place among world oil producers.

How much oil does Bakken have? The official estimate of the U.S. Geological Survey a few years ago was between four and five billion barrels. Mr. Hamm disagrees: "No way. We estimate that the entire field, fully developed, in Bakken is 24 billion barrels."

According to Department of Energy data, North Dakota is on pace to surpass California in oil production in the next few years. Mr. Hamm explains over lunch in Washington, D.C., that the more his company drills, the more oil it finds. Continental Resources has seen its "proved reserves" of oil and natural gas (mostly in North Dakota) skyrocket to 421 million barrels this summer from 118 million barrels in 2006

Today OPEC's market share is falling and no longer dictates the world price. This is huge, Mr. Hamm says. "Finally we have an opportunity to go out and explore for oil and drill without fear of price collapse." When OPEC was at its peak in the 1990s, the U.S. imported about two-thirds of its oil. Now we import less than half of it, and about 40% of what we do import comes from Mexico and Canada. That's why Mr. Hamm thinks North America can achieve oil independence.


There is much more to read, like the resistance our government has to domestic oil production.
