According to Chet Nichols, Husband of the Bowie County Clerk Natalie Nichols, Bowie County, TX District attorney’s office is wrapping the case up, but changing the modus operandi. Now they claim that Natalie Nichols was the one that left things out of theCommissioner Court meeting minutes.
Basically they have put the blame on her, which proves to me that the whole case is a set up to get Natalie out of office and replace her with an ACLU ducking democrat. See my column from yesterday on WordPress as well as on Amarillo Examiner.
***** Update ********** Update********** Update ********** Update *****
She is a loving mother and devoted wife, proud American, great patriot, and good Christian. And that is exactly the spirit Natalie Nichols, Bowie County, Texas clerk who faces not only loss of Job, but also Jail time and an insane amount of money in fines shows in an interview.
I sent her a few questions on her case, and once again she surprised me. Natalie is a true American. Instead of sadness, self-doubt, or fear of the uncertainty of her future she shows the typical fighting spirit of a true American, of a true Texan and still encourages others to stand up and fight and take a stand for everything dear to the American People and the American Character.
Natalie Nichols Interview is original.
Questionary to Natalie Nichols.
I first want to let you know that the Judge and the Court have changed their tune on the issue of the Prayer and Pledge. They voted to remove both on June 13th, but since then, they have gotten pressure and they have changed their agenda to now include the Prayer, a devotional, and a Pledge. I just wanted to make sure that you were aware of that. You don’t have to print that word for word, but I just wanted to throw that in there.
You are facing up to 6 months of jail time, $2,000 Dollars in fines, and the loss of your job for taking a stand for the “Pledge of Allegiance” and the opening prayer. Many brave men and women have given their life to defend those principles, how does that make you feel at the moment?
NN: Many brave men and women have given their lives to stand up for God and country and to give us the freedoms that we hold so dear in this country. It is for that reason that I had no choice but to stand up. Their sacrifice was so much greater than anything that I could ever give. To me, standing up on principle is part of being an American; I don’t know any different.
This entire case against you smells fishy, and the way it is being handled sounds to me more like a set-up. Let’s face it; you are the first fiscal conservative County clerk in Bowie County for 12 years. Do you believe this is revenge to get you out of office and re-install a Democrat as county clerk?
NN: Unfortunately the story playing out here is not unusual in local politics. A group of powerful people gets entrenched and after they’ve held onto that power for a number of years, they will fight dirty if anyone dares to challenge them. The intimidation and scare-tactics are meant to make average, every day citizens think twice about entering public office. It is politics as
usual, but only because we’ve allowed it for so long. The good ole boys will only behave that way until we stand up and demand better. I’ve been told, “That’s just politics.” Well not on my watch.
I looked at online posted County Commissioner Meeting documents and the Pledge as well as the invocation was always on it. Why do you think they waited until you were in Dallas on training to make this bold move to remove the Pledge and the invocation of the Commissioner Court meetings?
NN: I honestly think that it never occurred to them that I would speak up. The good ole boys are not used to someone calling them out on their actions and holding them accountable. I think that they simply thought they would make a bit of a power play with the County Clerk to put her in her place. They didn’t stop to think of the “unintended consequences” of messing with the
Prayer and the Pledge. We take those things very seriously in this country.
Has the County Sheriff’s office ever explained to you why they never questioned you about the case before turning it over to the
NN: I talked to someone with the Sheriff’s office today. They explained that they are making the recommendation to send it to the Grand Jury to remove the District Attorney and the Judge from the equation. It depends who you talk to. Some say that is true and some say it isn’t. I just have to trust that God has a plan and that regardless of the outcome, it will be part of His plan for me. The struggles we face in life seem like mountains at the time; but in the grand scheme of things they’re only speed bumps. They build character and make us stronger.
Judge Lacey, a self declared Conservative, officially admits that he does not put “Items” such as the Pledge and/or invocations on the Agenda out of “fear for the ACLU”. By taking away this authority from County clerks those RINO’s can bow before the radical ACLU mafia and avoid being sued.
Texas Law clearly gives the authority to add Minutes exclusive to the County Clerk. Do you think they are using you and your career as a pawn sacrifice to produce a case of creative precedence to take this authority away from the county clerk?
That way they could kill two birds with one stone: Fighting this all the way through to the Texas Supreme Court would be hard on you and your family. Maybe they are hoping to break your spirit and get you to resign before putting your family at risk which would pave the way in giving your office back to a Democrat?
NN: I have no doubt that the complaint filed against me is an attempt to intimidate me. Intimidation is the name of the game. If you’re worried that you will spend 6 months in jail and an insane amount of money trying to defend against that possibility, you will probably think twice about making your voice heard. At least that’s what the goal is. I’m not built that way. If I see wrong; I say it. If I hear wrong, I say it. Right is right and wrong is wrong and it doesn’t take holding an elected office to understand that basic premise. We teach it to our kids every day.
You are not the only fiscal conservative Patriot that is under attack these days. Governor Rick Perry faces a law suit for his call
for a national day of prayer for our battered nation. The Houston VA Cemetery is violating first amendment rights by prohibiting the use of God and Jesus in ceremonies. Just a few weeks ago Texans were trying to break the power of the TSA in Texas. Do you think that those partially open, and in your case, backdoor attacks are by design to break the conservative, patriotic Christian spirit of Texas?
NN: As Americans, our way of life is under attack. Our very belief system is being struck at from all angles and we can either sit by and let it happen or we can stand up and say, “Not on my watch.” I applaud Governor Perry for the prayer rallies he’s supporting. I was disgusted when I heard of the assault on the religion of the families of grieving Veterans in Houston. Political correctness has taken us down a path of supporting anything but American ideals. We don’t have to hide from who we are. America is beautiful. The people who have reached out to me just to offer a word of wisdom and encouragement and good old fashioned “We stand with you!” are examples to me of everything that is right in this world. More than anything, the outpouring of support for God and Country here locally and seeing so many Patriots stand up for our beliefs and ideals on the nationwide landscape has been an inspiration to me.
Natalie – this will be posted on Word press as well as on Amarillo Examiner and distributed all over the Internet all over the
country. If you could tell all my readers anything you wanted please feel free to do so. What can we do to help you and support you?
NN: When this issue first arose in my county, I saw it unfolding and I knew that there were risks involved in standing up. We’re human. It crosses our mind that when we take a stand, it might not be popular. We wonder if we’ll be the only one. We wonder, when we stand up, if it will really make a difference. And in that thirty second time frame, we come to a realization that some things are bigger than we are. The prayer and pledge are two of those things. One man with courage is a majority. I have not been alone. There are people all over the nation who have contacted me to say “We’re with you.” And it’s times like these when the words of our pledge ring so clear and so true. We are one nation under God. We are indivisible. We are Americans.
If you would like to help support me, I would simply ask that you stand up yourself, wherever you are. If you see an injustice taking place, understand that you are not alone, and be heard.
Thanks for your time in answering these questions and thank you for everything you do. God bless you, you are a great Patriot and role model.

How does a Conservative County Clerk in Texarkana, Bowie County/East Texas end up facing jail, fines, and loss of job for defending respectively and adding the “Pledge of Allegiance” as minutes to the County meeting?
“I shall never surrender nor retreat.
Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism, & of everything
dear to the American character, to come to our aid with all dispatch.”
(Excerpt from the Alamo Letter, William B. Travis,
Commandancy of the Alamo/Bexar, Fby. 24th 1836)
What wonderful words to read. Every time I visit the Alamo and read those words I get Goosebumps.
For 235 years the principles of “patriotism”, “Liberty”, “Justice” and everything dear to the American Character have been the backbone and fundamental spirit of this nation.
Men and Women in the U.S. Armed forces have sacrificed everything from family life to their greatest sacrifice, their lives to defend those principles. 185 men died at the Alamo defending the same.
But those times are apparently over.
Texarkana, Bowie County, East Texas – For 12 years the world in East Texas was, according to Judge Sterling Lacy, who identifies himself on his facebook page, a good conservative.
The county clerk was always a Democrat, so Judge Lacy, a spineless RINO, who admits he never added the “Pledge of Allegiance” and invocation to the minutes out of fear he could be “sued by organizations such as the ACLU” had nothing to worry about.
What a wonderful thought to know that our Judges have to be scared to be patriots and honor our fallen Heros because a radical left wing organization financed by Tax Dollars could use OUR tax contribution and sue them.
Isn’t America a wonderful country? What do we need foreign enemies for? We have the social terrorist in our own country and we even finance them with tax Dollars.
But in 2010 times changed in Bowie County; Natalie Nichols, a wonderful mother, wife, and fiscal conservative fought a successful election exactly on those patriot, constitutional, fiscal conservative principles and conquered the County Clerk’s office.
With enthusiasm she started her new calling serving the people of Bowie County, never leaving her patriotic principles out of sight. And as records show she always added the Pledge as well as the invocation.
However, on June 13, 2011 Judge Lacy decided, together with Precinct 4 commissioner Pat McCoy (another spineless RINO Conservative) to remove the Pledge from the minutes. Interestingly, is that they waited for this exact day on purpose.
On June 13, 2011County Clerk Nichols was in Dallas, Texas for training and could not attend the meeting.
On June 23, 2011when returning from training Nichols faced the Judge in the next court meeting where she said: “Over the years, many brave men and women have paid the ultimate sacrifice with their blood and their lives to protect this great nation that includes our most sacred flag. I will not dishonor their service or sacrifice. We shouldn’t be fighting to hide our allegiance to the flag; we should be fighting to proclaim it!”
On a County Commissioner Court meeting on July 11, 2011 things got out of hand when Lacy addressed the members of the court about the removal of the Pledge and Prayer from court documents claiming that the minutes were left out “the opening ceremony of devotional Prayer, and Pledge”.
Natalie Nichols immediately replied “that’s not true….the pledge and prayer are certainly there”. Judge Lacy immediately tried to silence here causing Nichols to exasperate “but you are lying.”
Nichols later on apologized for her outburst in court, but still stands to the principles. N.
Nichols also thanks the only lone member of the court who voted against the action saying “we all need to say a huge thank you to
Commissioner Addington for standing up for both God and Country and voting against it”.
Nevertheless, the county judge launched an investigation with Bowie County Sheriff James Prince against Nichols.
They never questioned her or gave her any chance to justify herself, 2 days after the investigation was launched sheriff Prince already turned the case over to the ADA.
Natalie Nichols became aware of the investigation against her through Texarkana Gazette. They did not even have the balls to tell her themselves.
Chet Nichols, Natalie’s husband told me on July 18, 2011that they are trying to wrap things up and address the Grand Jury onJuly 28, 2011.
Nichols, who by sec. 81.003 of Texas law, has the authority to record, amend, attest, and seal the minutes with the official county seal, says “they can sue me, remove me from office, but I will not remove the Pledge of Allegiance or the Prayer from the official recording of this court, when the action did in fact take place.”
And this is what you can do to help her and avoid injustice

Lately Christians in this country more and more have become used to being subject to discrimination, oppression, and slandering.
Just this past week Texas Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) had to take the heat because he dared to impose a “National Day of prayer for our beaten Nation on August 6th 2011”.
Critics immediately opposed that his call for a prayer was “too evangelical” as New York Times reports.
I have never heard Muslims call for prayer for our Nation, have you?
Christianity has always been a thorn in the flesh of radical left wing organizations such as the ACLU. Mostly because Christians strongly believe in moral values, the indefeasibility of traditional family, family values, and the right to live.
The latter especially was always a pain in the rear end for the ACLU because it contradicts their Agenda of Abortion.
But things have become worse since that radical Muslim-lover Obama joined the White House. On his very first inaugural tour he traveled to Egyptand declared publically that “The United States of America is no longer a Christian nation” bowing his head before Muslims.
He and his Czars have done everything in their power to promote Muslimization and allow Sharia Law to be installed all at the expense of Christianity in order to destroy it.
Christianity is the foundation of which our Foundation is built. Our founding fathers always had God in their minds and each and every declaration starts by mentioning “God”.
President Obama knows that Christianity as well as the Constitution (and both belong to each other as the fish to the water) is the foundation of everything Conservative Americans believe in.
In order to break our strength he has to take away what we love most – The CONSTITUTION AND OUR FAITH.
Doing so Obama plays a dangerous game with one of the most dangerous religions – Islam.
Obama really believes – if he helps Islamist’s to undermine our society and dismantle Christianity, and in the long run the spirit of the conservatives, he can then control Islam and build a socialist regime in America.
But that is going to back fire on him – because Muslims play Obama like an old piano. They know that as soon as we – the Christians – are destroyed, they will take over our Country and build a Muslim theocracy.
However, Obama in all of his radicalism and blindfolded naivety believing he will be able to control Muslims is not stupid at all.
He knows that by too much open force against Christianity he could produce a potential civil armed conflict. So, he does what Democrats always do best he uses indoctrination as a weapon.
It is quite contradicting that a radical organization like the ACLU who claims to fight for the separation of Church and State supports a radical Muslim faith that will never submit to Democracy and freedom of religion. On the contrary, Muslims are bound to impose a theocracy.
Michael Youssef founder of the Evangelical Church of the Apostles says in an interview with Christian Post: “Islam is a political and social ideology that will never submit to a secular form of government”.
While radical idiotic ACLU joined Forces with terrorist tied CAIR and keeps filing lawsuits against Christianity Obama positioned his Czars in all the important places to provide the proper indoctrination based on regulations for his advantage.
In this particular Case the FCC – Federal Communication Commission.
The best way to indoctrinate Americans is – TELEVISION. It is a fact that almost every American owns a TV, and though most people keep complaining about TV and the programs they keep watching.
In today’s world, kids spend more time in front of the TV than anywhere else. And though many parents really try to control what their children watch they are helpless when the Government uses the FCC issued TV regulations to indoctrinate socialism, muslimization, and other radical agenda’s through Children’s programs, and lately even through Christian Networks such as TBN (Trinity Broadcast Network).
With all of the cable networks leaving moral values by the wayside or surrendering to governmental and ACLU enforced political correctness the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) has always been the stronghold for Christians and Christian programs.
But apparently “compromise” and “political correctness” has now infected them too.
Rick Warren, who is the pastor of Saddleback church in southern California, author of “Purpose Driven Life” and well known for swearing in Obama, has now become known for his desperate and radical attempt to introduce an interfaith program called “Chrislam”, a mix of Christianity and Islam. On June 8th 2011 TBN chose to impose “censorship” on a 23 year running program because the preacher was naming churches and leaders that have “lost their way” – Rick Warren was one of them.
When Jack Van Impe, of the weekly TV program, Jack Van Impe Presents, (a well known TV pastor) was explaining “Chrislam” and how un-Biblical and dangerous it is to our Christian faith and named 2 specific individuals, Robert Schuller and Rick Warren, TBN would not show the program.
In an open Letter written on June 11, 2011 by Jack Van Impe to all his partners and published on his website, he specifically states what happened and the reasons given by Matt Crouch of TBN on why they were not going to air his program or his DVD offer. Jack Van Impe’s letter can be read here on his website.
An official response from TBN remains unanswered. I requested a written Statement on the matter from TBN and received no reply at all.
A telephone inquiry was made by many of my friends and remains questionable – Telephone operators at TBN are saying the censorship issue is due to the FCC.
Questionable because that is not was told to Jack Van Impe: “On Wednesday afternoon we received a call from Matt Crouch of TBN informing us that they would not run that program, despite having aired it Monday evening. The reason he gave was that we specifically mentioned Rick Warren and Robert Schuller and that it is TBN’s policy that broadcasters are not allowed to rebuke other ministries” (See www.jvim.com/update for full letter).
And here is my major concern:
“1st Amendment of the United States Constitution clearly prohibits the making of any law “respecting establishments of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, infringing on the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of press, interfering right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances”.
So when the FCC, a Governmental organization interferes with a private network of religious faith programs this is a clear violation of the 1st Amendment and unconstitutional.
And if this “censorship” is only based on FCC regulations, why hasn’t TBN opposed it and filed a lawsuit? In my opinion TBN has hidden behind feeblish excuses in order to appease the elite, Rick Warren and Robert Schuller.
The ACLU, Barrack Obama and the Federal Government is so concerned about the separation of State and Religion that it does everything possible in their power to dismantle the Christian influence in our society.
Why would they on the other hand so desperate try to sneak the indoctrination of Islam through the backdoor and even completely violate the 1st Amendment enforcing the indoctrination of a religion through a Governmental regulatory organization?
Texas– still one State under God – And not for Sale
The question is how much longer?
Bottom line is that just like the Nazi’s, the Obama administration pushes its will on the American people using the current media options to their advantage.
And just like WE THE PEOPLE changed the mind of Lt. Governor Dewhurst on the TSA-Anti-Groping-Bill through constitutional force by calling and emailing them, we have to do the same with TV Stations and Networks.
It is up to us to make it clear to them that they live exclusively off of us the viewers and if they don’t start making programs for us we will stop watching them.
Pick up the phone and contact TBN toll free 1-888-731-1000 or TBN’s business office under 1-714-832-2950 or pick up their website and send them a message or simply send them a good old fashioned letter: TBN, P.O. Box, Santa Ana, CA 92711.
Go tell your pastor, make it a case in church, and lobby and gather WE THE PEOPLE to force TBN to give up on the betrayal of true Christianity and take a stand for us.
If you do nothing you can be sure that Texaswill not much longer be “One State under God” and “In God We Trust” will no longer be the American Quote.
If you do nothing our Christian heritage will be erased. WE NEED our Cable Networks to pass on the TRUE Word of God since we cannot count on regular churches anymore.
May God BlessAmerica
I was thinking about telling you about a talk I had the other day with my son. He asked me why men and women become soldiers and what makes soldiers special.
They are fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves, defending those under pressure, and they do so no matter when and no matter where and if that means they have to go in a land far-far away they do so, to ensure you can grow up in a Country where you are free, where you can be a carpenter or a lawyer, a Cowboy or the President no matter what you are free to do whatever you want. So whenever you see one salute him and say thank you because he does not know you by name, but every day he or she is ready to die for you.
I first thought I would tell you about this conversation but I’ve decided not to.
Instead I want to give grace to the only group of men and women who should be walking on red carpets – THE AMERICAN SOLDIER.
Only two ever gave their lives for you
JESUS CHRIST on the Cross for your sins and
THE AMERICAN SOLDIER for your freedom.
Soldier’s Prayer (Psalm 91
By Harriet Yoder
O Lord Most High, help me to dwell in your secret place and abide under Your shadow.
Help me to believe and say out loud for everyone to hear that You are my refuge and my fortress; that You are my God; and that in You I put my trust.
O Lord God Almighty, please deliver me from hidden traps and diseases.
Father God, cover me with Your camouflage; hide me under Your wings; and let Your truth be my shield and buckler against the fiery darts—the lies—of the enemy.
Lord Jesus, help me not to be afraid of terrorists’ attacks in the night; or weapons that fly by day; or sicknesses that walk in darkness; or destruction that wastes at noonday.
O Holy God, though a thousand fall at my side, and ten thousand fall at my right hand; please let it not come close to me and my companions.
O Lord Most High, let me live to see the reward of the wicked, because You are my refuge and my home. Let no evil conquer me and let no plague come into my house or near my family.
O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer, please set angels over me to keep me in all Your ways, to bear me up in their hands and to keep my feet from stumbling.
Father God, help me to tread upon the lion and adder and trample the young lion and the dragon under my feet.
Lord Jesus, I love you with all my heart and I know Your name. Deliver me and lift me on high to soar with the eagles. I call upon you to be with me in times of trouble to deliver and honor me because I know Your name. Please show me Your salvation and satisfy me with a long life.
I ask this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ
THANK YOU MAN AND WOMEN OF THE
UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES
BE SAFE WHEREVER YOU ARE
I HAVE YOU FOREVER IN MY THOUGHTS; MY HEART AND PRAYERS AND
GOD BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE
His Royal Highness Barrack Hussein Obama, tyrant, dictator in chief, ruler over all Americans (who have to shut up when his highness Obama speaks and rules) has done it again and nothing will stop him from doing it again.
He has declared WAR ON TEXAS AND IN A LONG RUN ON EVERY SINGLE STATE OF THE UNION THAT DARES TO TALK BACK – and what makes me double mad is that our Texas legislator have paddled back in no time.
What happened: since month we the citizens complain about the unconstitutional, inappropriate and sexual molesting “pat down” on airports by Federal TSA perverts. The entire country was angry about that.
The blow off was, among many others, the pat down of a 6 month old toddler at Kansas City Airport.
I was so amazingly proud of my Home state when Texas took it upon itself to make bold step forward protecting its citizens from this molesting handling and introduced “Texas Legislation Bill HBO 1973 – Travel Freedom Act” outlawing this procedure.
In lame terms the bill says that no resident attending a public building or Airport within the boundaries of Texas shell be pat down and any inappropriate physical contact will be prosecuted under Texas Law and that counts also for TSA agents on Airports.
Taking the lead on that many states considered a similar law introduction. But narcissist Dictator in Chief “B.H. Obama” of course did not take that and started an open war on Texas and in a long run any other State that dares not to bow before his highness.
It all started with an open insult to our Governor Rick Perry during Obama’s border visit in El Paso.
Though Obama knew he was going to Austin, the State capitol, he “invited” Rick Perry to travel 400 miles in one direction so he can stay on his side while Obama speaks to illegals.
Responsible Governor Perry informed him that this is a waste of money and time and since Obama is going to be the next day in Austin he is invites to the State capitol for a discussion.
Guess what, that narcissist Obama, being a guest in Texas, did not have enough courtesy, respect and manners to visit the Governor of Texas but ignored his invitation.
The next hit against Texas came right away. While being in Europe on a 6-day petting tour, at least they like him, Obama’s czars issued a letter to Texas Lawmakers concerning the already mentioned Bill “HBO 1973”.
The basic content of the letter reads as followed:
“If HR [sic] 1973 were enacted, the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statue,” Murphy wrote. “Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passenger and crew” (Source – the Tenth Amendment Center).
Or in other words, if Texas dares to protect its residents and its guests from inappropriate physical molesting President Obama will issue a No-Fly Zone over Texas and damage our economy and State sustainably.
As I have learned from Tenth Amendment Center similar letters have been issued to Oklahoma two years ago, Montana and Tennessee in 2009 in response to those states passing a Firearms freedom act, more recently to the Governor of Rhode Island warning against the States implementation of Marijuana legislation, and at least four other states implementing a similar “travel freedom legislation” act.
I was very disappointed to hear that Texas Lawmakers have not lived up to our amazing Heritage as a fighting State and instead of taking a stand against “Obama tyranny” they have pulled their tails between their legs like a beaten dog and on May 24, 2011 one day after the letter was delivered Texas Legislation has withdrawn the “Travel Freedom Act, also known as HBO 1973” and on May 25, 2011 marked the same as “Not placed in Intent” level.
Shame on you Texas Lawmakers!!
This is not the Texas spirit of our founding fathers in the Alamo. Our spirit is.
“DON’T FORGET THE ALAMO”.
But there are things we can do. Call your congressman/woman, call Lt. Governor Dewhurst (Website Link: http://www.ltgov.state.tx.us/contact.php), his phone number: 512-463-0001, and let them know how disappointed you are, go the Governors website and leave a message (Website Link: http://governor.state.tx.us/contact/) or call the governor his phone number is 512-463-2000.
Make them know you support continues of the Bill 1973 and show them that WE THE PEOPLE RULE and not a dictator in Washington.
I wrote a mail to Governor Perry already, I let him know of the publishing my column and I called him.

The United Nations is well known for hiding its radical dream of being the world’s government behind their alleged humanitarian agenda.
The United Nation is also very well known for their perfidious chess games in order to reach their hidden goals and agendas.
But the pathetic and extremely dangerous game the United Nations is playing right now with Israel in order to achieve their agenda of a Palestinian State is beyond every imagination and could cost the State of Israel a lot more than just the endangerment of their country – it could cost the existence of the State of Israel period.
In my last column I wondered why the United Nations had not prevented the riot of Palestinian protesters on ‘Nakba-Day’ at the Syria/Israel weapons hold line; though they had stationed a 1,500 man strong UNDOF unit there with over 40 years of experience.
The more I think about this the more sense it makes that these “Riots” have been a “dress rehearsal” for something way bigger to come, something that is as radical as it is dangerous for the entire State of Israel and yet it is a stroke of genius in the planning.
Tunisia: When the riots started in January inTunisia and then spread throughout the northern African Muslim regions the whole world lead by the United Nations cheered for the “peaceful protesters” who wanted to take over their countries and chase their dictatorial oppressors out.
Back then I had already warned that this would be an uncontrollable wildfire and even predicted pretty accurately which country would fall. And it happened just as it had to happen and exactly as predicted by me and many of my colleague’s one country after the next fell.
After Egypt, when Obama for the first time publically supported the Muslim Brotherhood, despite all the warnings from conservative forces all over the world, the agenda and plan became a pattern though it was not yet obvious to see.
In Libya President Obama and the United Nation for the first time showed openly a sign of their agenda when they decided to support the protesters with military force. Under the cover of ‘humanitarian aid’ they decided to bomb Gaddafi troops and so interfere in an inner conflict internationally known as civil war.
Under “UN Resolution1973”NATO was authorized to impose a no-fly zone overLibyato avoid a slaughter of unarmed civilians, pledging that “This is not interference in an inner conflict and not an attack on Libya’s governmental troops or the Libyan Government”.
A pledge that has been broken several times; since the Libyan Air Force has been destroyed the UN Mandate is practically fulfilled and yet NATO keeps bombing Libyan Ground forces to support rebels, which is not covered under the UN Mandate. Even worse NATO has directed its attacks on Gaddafi’s headquarters resulting in the killing of his grandchildren.
And guess what – no protests, no outcry, or screams from any liberal UN butt kisser of the killing small children there.
Once again President Obama shows publically his support for the Muslim brotherhood and once again publically shows his support for the peaceful protesters.
Despite the continued warnings from more conservative forces that the Muslim Brotherhood is highly connected with Hamas and Al Qaeda members the Obama show must go on.
And now even in Syria, where nobody can believe it, serious riots have broken loose. But what is interesting is that the riots in Syria started on the Southside near the Jordan border not so far away from the West bank.
And again the world fully sides with the “Peaceful protesters”. But the location of the Syrian protests is very important to watch here.
On May 1st Obama took advantage of the Bush administration policy and finally ordered the kill of Osama bin Laden.
From this moment on, running from descending poll numbers to a new high altitude, POTUS used the favorableness of the hour to reignite his Middle East Policy and the first step was announcing a 2 Billion Dollar financial aid promise from the U.S. to Egypt (Debt forgiveness for 1 billion dollars and the other 1 billion dollars, free money) and then giving a shocking speech demanding Israel should withdraw to its 1967 borders (pre-war borders).
This demand was immediately shot down by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ofIsrael.
On Nakba-Day 2011 Palestinian protesters started rioting on the Israeli border and for the first time the UNDOF forces were not present to calm down the situation and it came as it had to come: the results were 12 dead and dozens wounded.
But something else happened on that day: 1 single man, ignored by the U.S. Media, managed to break through the Israeli line and flee all the way to Tel Aviv (supported by local “Israeli and French Peace movement groups”. According to newspapers he even used public transportation being unrecognized while sitting shoulder to shoulder with Israeli Soldiers.
28 year old Hassan Hijazi, an employee from the Syrian education ministry broke the border in Quneitra, a city under full control of the UNDOF forces (as I explained exactly in my last column), and fled to Jaffa a suburb of Tel Aviv.
Hijazi turned himself in demanding the right to live in that area where his forefathers lived until the creation ofIsraelin 1948, and his family lost. He also claimed thatIsraeldoes not exist and the land is allPalestine.
Meanwhile Hijazi has been expelled fromIsraeland sent back toSyria. But that is the exact danger I want to point out.
When Benjamin Netanyahu visited the White House onFriday May 20, 2011he rejected Obama’s radical idea of drawing back to the 1967 borders, calling them “indefensible” lines.
In an inimitable interview, after conferring with POUTUS Prime Minister Netanyahu not only gave Obama a lecture in world politics, but also said something very interesting at the end of the press conference.
He said quote: “After 1967 Israel has absorbed all the Jewish refugees from all over the Arab world while on the other hand the Arab world has not absorbed one single Palestinian refugee”.
The world’s reaction to this rejection and speech of the Israeli Prime Minister was just as to be expected; a constant badgering of Israel as the aggressor, his unwillingness for peace, and the allegation that Israel is the oppressor of the poor Palestinians.
But he is right. Just as the map below shows, there are over 7 Million Palestinian refugees surroundingIsrael from 5 sides.
Putting the following three facts together: a) Palestinians will push the UN in September for their own recognized State (only question is where), b) Obama publically announcing the demand of Israel to retreat back to its old borders, and c) UNDOF’s complete unresponsiveness to the riots on Nakba day. This leaves only one reasonable suspicion – THIS WAS A COLD RUN; A REHEARSAL FOR MORE TO COME.
And when we recollect the “Gaza Flotilla” where Palestinians attacked Israeli’s with sticks, baseball bats, and rocks forcing the Israeli Navy to open fire on them this whole perfidious plan makes sense when I say Nakba Day 2011 was a cold run and dress rehearsal.
Just imagine this: 7 Million “peaceful unarmed protesters” start pushing into Israel.
Israel’s military is one of the best in the world and well equipped to fight, and battle every armed conflict, but how are they supposed to react when unarmed civilians from 5 sides with sticks and stones flood the country and occupy the entire area south of the West bank?
If they shoot at them hot (with sharp ammunition) the world’s community will consider Israel the aggressor putting them in the same category with dictators and tyrants.
The bottom line is,Israelis not prepared for that and the UN knows it. All the UN needs to do is either remove its forces (UNODF and UNIFIL) or order them to stand down and let things take its course.
The world will immediately side with the Palestinian refugees andIsraelwill be doomed. Step one, in my opinion,Israelwill be forced to retreat back to its borders of 1967 and in step two Arab Forces will start a new War againstIsraelfor final destruction.
This is impossible? Just take a look at northernAfrica,Syria, and the rest of theMiddle East.
And now imagine 10 million Mexican farmers gathering on our southern borders demanding Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California back supported by the 2 million Illegal’s already inside our borders.
Imagine they start flooding our borders. Knowing that only 44% of the American Southern border is secured what would we do? Would we shoot at the flooding crowd, or would we just stay there and watch?
Just like Israelwe could not fire on the protesters or we would be outlawed in the worlds community, fences won’t hold them or stop them so please you tell me – WHAT WOULD WE DO – WHAT SHOULD ISRAEL DO?
It is going to be a Hot Summer 2011 for Israel
Pray for Israel and may
God in Heaven Bless and protect Israel and
The United States of America

When surfing through international news on Sunday I came across a stunning Article in the Austrian daily newspaper “Österreich” headlining “Bin Laden Secretly in Austria (Bin Laden geheim in Österreich)”.
Since I was born in that country I felt puzzled but not surprised by that news. Since the foundation of the so called second Republic in 1955 after World War 2 plus 10 years of military occupancyAustriahas always performed a so called “political balancing act” or in other words looking the other way rather than having problems with anybody.
Bottom line of the News article: In 1993, when visitingAustria, Osama bin Laden was recognized inSaudi Arabia and theU.S. as a fundamentalist, but not as a terrorist. Ayman al-Zawahiri however had already been a recognized Terrorist on an international Search warrant for his involvement in the killing of Egyptian President Anwar al-Sadat. Osama bin Laden was issued a passport from the Embassy of Bosnia-Herzegovina inVienna and for that he must have been physically present.
Austriawas very well aware of the status of Zawahiri. But instead of following up on their obligation to arrest him they decided to prohibit him to speak publicly, that way they could claim no knowledge and avoid potential retaliation of terrorists (that is one way to deal with Terrorists).
What I also read in that article was that under full protection of the United Statesthe two of them funneled almost a half a Billion Dollars through the Viennese based Help organization “Third World Relief Agency”.
With full knowledge of the United States Government Bin Laden and his friend Zawahiri funneled that half a Billion Dollars to Bosniain order to deploy a fundamental Brigade under the 3. Corps of the Bosnia-Muslim Army named “Mudschahid”. The manpower of this brigade held 5,000 Arabic “Gods-Warriors” trained inSudan.
So why is this article then called “Democrats and their Love affair with Terrorists?
Short Flashback: In mid 1979 Democrat President Jimmy Carter launched the controversial CIA operation delivering weapons and Money to the Afghanistan Mujahedin where Osama bin Laden fought against the Russians. Though the official training of the Mujahedin had exclusively been done by the Pakistani Army they would not have done it without President Carter’s permission.
President Reagan, who inherited this controversial training, stopped that nonsense in 1989.
It is believed that the first bombing attack involving Bin Laden was inDecember 29, 1992, bombing the Gold Mihor Hotel inAdenin which two people were killed.
In 1993 Democrat President Bill Clinton refused first to recognize the “First World Trade Center Bombing” (which killed 6) as a terror attack and in the same year, though Zawahiri was already a recognized terrorist and Bin Laden already on a watch list, used the both of them to coordinate the American attacks onBosnia. As a matter of fact, Osama bin Laden was the coordinator of the U.S. Air Strikes and the 3. Corps Bosnia-Muslim Army ground forces.
So it is no surprise that President Clinton, among other opportunities, refusedSudan’s request to arrest Bin Laden as well as he simply ignoredYemen’s plea for help in 1993 on the same issue.
Republican President George. W. Bush replaced Bill Clinton in 2001. By then Osama Bin Laden was already responsible for several bombings such as the Luxor Massacre ’97 (62 dead), the U.S. Embassy bombing in 1998 (hundreds dead), etc.
After the 9/11 attack President George W. Bush finally did the right thing putting Osama bin Laden on the list as #1 Enemy of the State.
Ten Years later Democrat President Obama finally gets the opportunity his Democrat party predecessor Bill Clinton missed and took advantage of the hard work of the Bush Administration killing Bin Laden.
Nevertheless, the streak of Terrorist loving Democrat Policy continues with President Obama by officially supporting next to Terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah, the radical Muslim Brotherhood (remember the same organization Ayman al-Zawahiri was a member of in 1992), and helped the same to take out Hosni Mubarak.
He officially supports the same organization throughout the entire northernAfricarevolution streak includingLibya. Sure Muammar al Gaddafi is a tyrant and terrorist himself and needs to be removed, but I doubt replacing a tyrant/terrorist with another terrorist organization is a better trade.
Don’t forget that with this thoughtless and un-planned revolt support Al Qaeda in Maghreb becomes more powerful on a daily base and with Bin Laden being dead and the Power struggle within this terror organization ahead Al Qaeda in Maghreb, sitting on Billions of Dollars in Oil (only European Countries profit from), becomes probably the most influential part of this Terror Network.
The U.S. Democrats and their European Socialist Pendants have in addition to their love affair with Marxism, anti – Private business, irresponsible Budget dealings, ultra liberalism affiliation with baby slaughter, as well as affection for sexual liberal alternative lifestyles, one very dangerous issue in common: Their blind sighting on terrorists.
They both are so eager to prove to the world their self declared humanitarianism that they would rather sleep with the devil and endanger not only their home country (Democrats the U.S., Europeans their home countries) but also our allies, friends, and the entire free world.

Watching President Obama’s “Immigration Reform” speech on Tuesday May 10,2011 inEl Paso, Texas makes it crystal clear that this entire Agenda has absolutely nothing to do with home land security, border protection, or economical issues.
It is all about his political survival and the election-campaigning ahead, not to forget, he wants to send a message to the Hispanic Community that he is willing to use his new popularity to grab the Agenda by the horns as he promised in his campaign in 2008.
Problem was for him that the Healthcare debate was devastating for his presidency and Obama knew if he took on the Immigration agenda at the same time, he could kiss the chance of a second term good bye.
But now after the Osama execution, that he sold so eloquently as his very own success (got to give 5 Stars to the Democratic Public Relations machinery), he now feels he can use this moment to push another radical Agenda which is again widely opposed by the American people, but he has to keep his promise if he wants the Hispanic support for re-election.
And so the President heads to Texas, the very same City were Janet Napolitano stood in March on a bridge connecting El Paso to Cuidad Juarez, Mexico proclaiming border security “better than ever”.
********** BREAKING NEWS****BREAKING NEWS**********
National Terror Alert center reports, under reference to Associated Press and ABC15.com, on Wednesday May 11th, 2011 (one day after Obama was in El Paso and one Month after Napolitano declares out borders safer than ever: “Sophisticated smuggling tunnel found in Nogales”
In his speech President Obama claims that “under Secretary Napolitano’s leadership we have strengthened border security beyond what many believed was possible….they wanted a fence. Well the fence is now complete”. This is absolutely wrong.
The fact of the matter is, according to “Government Accountability Office reports (U.S. GAO)” only670 Miles of the entire2200 mile border is complete and 1120 southwest border miles have not yet achieved operational control. According to Sheriffs working and living along the U.S.-Mexican border they call the assertion this administration has done to enforce the border a laughable matter.
Obama also claims credit that 64% more weapons have been confiscated than before – he just forgot to say that Attorney General Eric Holder first sold those weapons to the drug lords in Mexico. So the 64% he confiscated are basically those he handed out himself.
- House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) said quote: “Mr. President, 44 percent is a failing grade. If 44 percent is the most secure the border has ever been it’s time to get to work to improve the grade. The American people expect nothing less than a A-Plus on border security:”
Or in lame terms – if 44% is most secure – what happens with the remaining 66%? Just hours before Mr. Obama’s El Paso visit the State of Texas passed a bill that would prevent so called “sanctuary cities” from telling police to ignore immigration violations.
Maybe Secretary Napolitano and Mr. Obama haven’t understood so far that the border security and immigration violations problems cannot be solved on a computer with animated graphics, but is a real problem for real people.
How much Obama understands about Security and Economics shows in the one comment he made during the speech: “Those who break immigration laws should “pay their taxes, pay their fines and learn English” before getting right back into line to obtain citizenship.”
I said it several times, I have no clue where Mr. Obama got his Law degree, but I refuse to believe that a prestigious Law school such as Harvard failed to teach him how to read Federal Laws.
Illegal Immigrants beak at least 4 Federal Laws when crossing the border: Border violation, Tax fraud, forging federal documents, Social Security fraud.
Here is a little excerpt as what they would have to face if the Law was really enforced:
- Illegal border crossing – Section 1325 in Title 8 of the United States code punishes enter or an attempt to enter the United States without permission with a maximum prison term of 6 month for the first offense and 2 years subsequently. Considering the fact that the majority are repeat violators do the math.
- Tax Fraud– Title 26 USC §§ 7201, 7202, 7203, 7206(1), 7206(2), 7212 (A), Title 18 USC § 371 are punishable between 3 years and 5 years in prison according to the IRS
- Forging Documents – In order not to get caught illegals maintain a roaring commerce with federal and State documents, such as Social security cards (necessary to be eligible for an apartment, driver’s license, getting the kids in school, etc.). According to CriminalDefenseLawyers.com the punishment varies based on size and scope as well as involvement in other crimes. But the happy hand round and flourishing trade has organized Crime character.
- Social Security fraud – SSA 143.2 reads: The penalty upon conviction for violation of the penal provisions of the Social Security Act or one of the related provisions of the Federal Criminal Code may be a fine, imprisonment, or both. The penalty ranges from a fine of not more than $500, imprisonment of one year, or both to a fine of not more than $10,000, imprisonment of not more than 15 years, or both. The penalty depends upon the specific law violated.
Considering the fact that this is an ongoing crime committed on purpose, repeatedly by several family members and with the full knowledge of the illegality there is no way they should qualify for minimum sentences.
Even under a liberal point of few, looking at those crimes I don’t see any chance that illegals could get away with a fine – I see a minimum of 10 years in federal Prison (considering the terms served consecutive and without state charges)
Or does the President insinuate again that he is willing to obstruct justice as he did after the rejection of the DREAM act. Remember when he announced that he is not willing to enforce immigration laws on illegal students abusing our social system.
My facebook friend brought up a good point when saying this would be “Citizenship by default”.
Obama say’s let them pay their taxes. Good – what taxes? Let us take a closer look at the numbers.
Illegal Immigration costs Arizona and California 12 Billion Dollars each per year. According to CIS (Center for Immigration Studies) illegal’s rip off the IRS for a total of 6 Billion Dollars per year.
And last but not least the same source shows that 71% of all illegal’s use one or more welfare programs (See the graphics in Fig1 to 13 here which costs additional Billions of Dollars every year.
Jena McNeill from Heritage Foundation explains: “An amnesty would cost taxpayers millions, if not billions of dollars – at a time where debt is at the ceiling and budgets are busted. It would also reward those who broke the law and came into the U.S. illegally over those who came to the U.S. the legal way.”
Or in other words – I came legally into this country after waiting and filing for 15 years – this amnesty would be a slap in my face.
But I am sure the President of Mexico, Felipe Calderon, is pleased with that situation because instead of paying taxes here in American those thugs send an estimated 40 Cents on every Dollar back to Mexico which is a win-win situation for them. Mexico does not have to care for its poor and they still get 40 % of the money stolen from the American Tax payers or in numbers 40% from the estimated 12 Billion Dollars which is 4.8 Billion Dollars for Mexico AND THAT IS EVERY YEAR.

Week one of the post Osama bin Laden week and POTUS still travels through the country like a Rock star acting like he has been the Hero of the OBL execution, like it was all his personal victory.
No matter if it is the media friendly orchestral appearance at Ground Zero shouting “We Will Never Forget” (like he has ever been on the side of the American people) or his announcement to visit the Navy SEAL training camp in Coronado.
Constantly pointing out that this is “NOT” about his re-election – Yea right, is the Pope catholic?
But what Obama still refuses to admit, but what the Media more and more is recognizing is that Obama had absolutely nothing to do with it.
Just as I pointed out in my latest column (“WordPress” and “Amarillo Examiner”) Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum said it pretty accurate as well on Thursday May 5th 2011 first presidential debate: “if you look at what President Obama has done right in foreign policy, it was a continuation of the Bush policies,” Santorum said. The decision he made with Osama bin Laden – that was a tactical decision. It wasn’t a strategic decision. The strategic decision was made by President Bush, to go after him”.
Ann-Marie Murrell, columnist for many leading Online Magazine’s brought it right to the point when she said in her column on Patriot Update: “Thank you Mr. President (President Bush that is….)”.
Next to former President George W. Bush there is another Texan that had a major Role in the demise of Osama bin-Laden.
As the Washington Post reports, San Antonio, Texas born Vice Admiral William H. McRaven, was the commanding officer of the “Joint Special operations Command” for three years and the man that hunted Osama bin-Laden the past three years and lead the tactical groundwork for the successful execution of the world’s most wanted terrorist.
Vice Admiral W.H. McRaven, born in San Antonio, Texas graduated from Roosevelt High school and then from the University of Texas, Austin where he was a member of the “Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps”. He graduated in 1977 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and holds a master’s degree from the “NavalPostgraduateSchool” where he helped and was the first graduate from the Special Operations/Low Intensity Conflict curriculum (from Wikipedia).
Vice Admiral McRaven is a highly awarded War Veteran who served in: Operation Desert Shield, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and now Operation Geronimo that lead to the Osama bin-Laden closure.
He himself is a trained Navy SEAL, and in addition carries the Navy Parachutist badge (not worn), Presidential service Badge and the Joint Special Operations Command badge.
Among many other awarded medals Vice Admiral McRaven was awarded the Defense Superior Service medal (2), Legion of Merit Medal (2) and Bronze Star (2).
This man is a true Texas Hero and we Texan’s can be proud of him. So while POTUS travels through the country enjoying the success of others it was twoTexas heroes’s that actually and truly led the way to success.
So here is my message to all you Terrorists, criminals, drug and weapon smugglers out there:
DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS
We come and get ya
