SPECIAL REPORT: Failed Car Bombing in Times Square

Posted by Admin on May 1, 2010

Time square was evacuted around 6:30 pm on Saturday, May 1, 2010 due to what police discovered was a failed bombing attempt.  There was a man reportedly Middle-Eastern in appearance running from the scene, but there is no name of a suspect available at this time.  No injuries are reported at this time.

A firefighter saw a “flash”, and smoke coming from what was described as an SUV, and a man running away.

Here is his quote from a Reuter’s article @ Yahoo! News:

“Another New York City firefighter who said he arrived early on the scene described the vehicle as a dark-colored SUV, and said it was parked at the corner of 45th Street and Seventh Avenue. He confirmed the vehicle was smoking and also said he saw “a flash” from the back of the SUV. The firefighter said a “mini-explosion” occurred around 6:30 p.m.” ~ NY Times Sq. Evacuated After Failed Car Bomb ~ Reuter’s

Due to scheduled and historic protests today, some speculation in the blogosphere is addressing the issues of International Workers’ Day (a labor holiday observed by Socialists, Communists, Marxists, Stalinists, and Anarchists worldwide), as well as being the day that Pro-Illegal Immigration Rallies were planned to occur in 70 cities (reportedly turnout for the latter was down compared to the protests in 2006).  Reports of someone who is Middle-Eastern looking brings up the subject of Islamic Terrorism.  Most people speculate that those may be the top 3 suspected sources for this attempted terrorist attack in the heart of The Big Apple.

Since the bomb was being detonated at 6:30 pm, it would have been targeted at the Matinee Crowd attending many top Broadway Shows in the area, and tourists.

Neo-Soviet Attempted Coup Underway at Georgian Military Base

Posted by Admin on May 6, 2009

MORE INFORMATION TO FOLLOW THIS POSTING SOON…

I also have some resource links listed in my Focus Page: War in Georgia from my coverage of the invasion back in August of 2008.

Georgia is basically at War with Neo-Soviet Russia – dealing with a Neo-Soviet Russian coup at a Military Base.  The officials within the Democratic Nation of Georgia have reported that those involved in the rebellion are following plans made by Neo-Soviet Russians who are also charged with bribery of those involved in what would appear from Georgia’s contentions to be mutinous actions within their military.

Below, please find an article from Reuter’s News service.  It is an excerpt.  The full article can be read by following the link below this article.


Georgia Says Coup Underway at Military Base

Reuters News Service |Tuesday,  5/5/09 | Matt Robinson

Georgia said on Tuesday a Russian-planned coup plot had been uncovered within the military of the former Soviet republic and a rebellion was under way at a military base near the capital.

The Interior Ministry said those involved in the plot had received money from Russia which has criticized NATO military exercises in Georgia due to begin on Wednesday.

“The main aim of this uprising was to disrupt the NATO military exercises,” Defense Minister David Sikharulidze told Reuters. “We are in negotiations with the soldiers at the Mukhrovani base and I hope this uprising will end soon.”

Sikharulidze said the commanders of the military base 19 km (12 miles) from the capital Tbilisi had been dismissed and the soldiers confined to barracks.

The Interior Ministry said one person had been arrested.

“They (the plotters) were receiving money from Russia,” ministry spokesman Shota Utiashvili told a news conference. “It seems it was coordinated with Russia.”

Obama’s Contradictions and Lies about HIMSELF!

Posted by Admin on September 26, 2008

Hello loyal readers,

I’m sure most of you, like me, watched the debate between Sen. John McCain, and Sen. Barack Obama tonight.  It was certainly interesting…

At this moment I am going back through the debate, and having a great time picking out all the lies, inconsistencies, and contradictions made by Obama tonight.  While I’ve got a pretty long list already, I’d like to give my readers an opportunity to add to it!

So, if you remember a specific comment made by Obama that you know to be a (so-called) “mis-statement”, please feel free to make a comment below.  (Comments are moderated, so I will check back periodically as I’m doing my research to approve respectful comments).

If you are an Obama supporter running across this post, I’d like to hear from you as well – as long as you keep it clean, and respectful.  Was there something that you believe McCain said that wasn’t true about Obama?  If so, please submit that as well.  I will do my best to be fair in rebutting your charges against him with facts, and citations for my sources (the same as I will be doing to prove my case against Obama).

Ok, well I’ve got a LOT of stuff to go through right now, and some research to complete so I’ll wrap up this particular post.  If you run across anything else that you feel is important that I should include in my summation of the debate, please feel free to comment on that as well — or add your comments on the debate itself!  As I said – as long as it’s respectful, I welcome comments by Obama supporters (or Libertarians, or Greens, or any other party’s supporters) as well.

Take care for now everyone, and I’ll try to post my summation within the next few hours, if not in the morning.

Obama Exposed – 1995 Interview Proves him a Collectivist

Posted by Admin on April 1, 2008

This post was originally published on the LibertyRocks.us Blog –
BREAKING NEWS: Obama’s 1995 Interview Exposes Him as a Collectivist.

First, for those of you who may not be familiar with what Collectivism is, let’s look to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary for a definition;

COLLECTIVISM:
1
:a political or economic theory advocating collective control especially over production and distribution; also : a system marked by such control
2: emphasis on collective rather than individual action or identity

– Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary; Entry – Collectivism
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Collectivism
Accessed on March 31, 2008

Here is another, perhaps more complete, definition:

Collectivism holds that the individual is not an end to himself,
but is only a tool to serve the ends of the group.

What is the key principle underlying collectivism?
The theory of collectivism (in all its variants) holds that man is not an end to himself, but is only a tool to serve the ends of others. Collectivism, unlike individualism, holds the group as the primary, and the standard of moral value. Whether that group is a dictator’s gang, the nation, society, the race, (the) god(s), the majority, the community, the tribe, etc., is irrelevant — the point is that man in principle is a sacrificial victim, whose only value is his ability to sacrifice his happiness for the will of the “group”.

What is the opposite of collectivism?
The opposite of collectivism is individualism. Individualism declares that each and every man, may live his own life for his own happiness, as an end to himself. Politically, the result of such as principle is capitalism: a social system where the individual does not live by permission of others, but by inalienable right.

Now that you know what Communism, oops, I mean collectivism is, you will know what to look for as you read the interview linked below that Barack Obama gave just 10 years ago…

Here are just two of the more audacious quotes from the interview;

[One Quick Note; As I was reading this, before posting this piece on my blog, I thought to myself, “Wow, the title of Obama’s book was really like a freudian slip wasn’t it. Obama and his closest supporters actually had the “Audacity to Hope”, that people wouldn’t realize the true content of his character in a National Campaign. The Democrats really messed this one up allowing him to get this far – unless this is what they all believe! I guess we shouldn’t be surprised really… A quote of Maya Angelou’s came to my attention in the last few days, she said (paraphrased) Believe somebody when they show you who they are… the FIRST time.]

Anyone familiar with Star Trek will identify the first quote of Obama’s as sounding eerily familiar to the Borg! Automatons without thoughts of their own, with no desire, but that of the collective. Does Barack imagine himself some come-to-life version of the Borg Queen?

Obama on Individualism, vs. Collective thought, action and deed…
Borg Drone from Star Trek In America,” Obama says, “we have this strong bias toward individual action. You know, we idolize the John Wayne hero who comes in to correct things with both guns blazing. But individual actions, individual dreams, are not sufficient. We must unite in collective action, build collective institutions and organizations.”

– Barack Obama,
Interview with the Chicago Reader, 1995

Obama on the Million Man March, which he attended:
Historically, African-Americans have turned inward and towards black nationalism whenever they have a sense, as we do now, that the mainstream has rebuffed us, and that white Americans couldn’t care less about the profound problems African-Americans are facing

– Barack Obama,
Interview with the Chicago Reader, 1995

Please go to Nice Deb’s Blog to read the rest of the interview…

OH, WAIT!!! I almost forgot! What about Hillary, you say?

In case you think I’m just slammin’ Obama, please consider the following – Hillary is no different than Barack. She just has a different name for describing the good Democrats that she has met along the campaign trail. She describes them as good “Communitarians“. [Communitarianism is basically the same as collectivism, denial of all forms of self, in the pursuit of the benefit of the whole, with no thought to the goodness of invidualism. In other words, denying our God-given freedom of thought even for the good of the majority.]

“I was shocked when I learned Iowa and Mississippi have never elected a woman governor, senator or member of Congress,” Clinton told the paper. “There has got to be something at work here. How can Iowa be ranked with Mississippi? That’s not the quality. That’s not the communitarianism, that’s not the openness I see in Iowa.”

– Hillary Clinton, stated to the Des Moines Register,
October 2007, while campaigning in Iowa during the Primaries

Now, you may say Communitarianism is the opposite of libertarianism, and you may be right, but it is also the enemy ideologically to the United States as a Freedom Loving Constitutional Republic! We were not set up as a Socialist/Communist government. Which is the TRUE agenda of both Collectivism, and Communitarianism. And those who say, either ignorantly, or dishonestly that it’s not would end up paving the way for those who recognize it as such, and destroy our country along the way.

Conservatism, Individualism, Capitalism, and its friends in philosophical ideology are what’s best about the United States and what has made this country the most free in the world. We cannot let Collectivists, Communitarians, Socialists, and Communists oppress us like they have millions of other poor unfortunate souls across the world (See the Former Soviet Union (USSR), Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Fidel Castro, etc…) and are doing to this day (see China, Chavez/Venezuela, Kim Jong Il/North Korea).

Thanks to “Nice Deb“, who brings news of the interview to the blogosphere, and to “Jet Jaguar” over on FreeRepublic.com who notified me of the posting of this expose at Ace of Spades.
