About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

The Beauty Of Constitutional Freedoms

Below is a very thoughtful piece researched & written by a member of our group re the Ground Zero Mosque that comes to the conclusion that building this mosque is a very bad idea.

Now I am sure that we have all heard that Imam Faisal has every constitutional right to build this mosque @ 45 Park Place in lower Manhattan & that is indisputable - just as sure as everyone has the right to burn the American flag, everyone has the right to not stand with their hand over their heart facing the flag upon the playing of the Star Spangled Banner, & anyone has the right to build this mosque on the graveyard of Americans who did not do one thing wrong on 9/11 except go to work. The beauty of all of these constitutional freedoms is that exercising them identifies the perpetrators as enemies of America to the rest of us.

---Cordoba House Analysis---

The "Cordoba Initiative" would erect a $100 million mosque and Islamic Center near Ground Zero, where nearly 3,000 Americans were killed on 9/11. Faisal Abdul Rauf, the project's face, says it's about interfaith tolerance. Cordoba, though, was the Caliphate that marked its 711 A.D. conquest of Spain by converting an ancient church into a huge mosque complex. Rauf, who urges America to be more Sharia compliant, wrote a 2004 book entitled "What's Right with Islam Is What's Right With America" - except overseas, where it was provocatively titled "A Call To Prayer From The World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa In The Heart Of America Post 9/11."

Sometimes called "stealth Jihad", Dawa is the aggressive promotion of Islam by which influential Islamists promise to "conquer" America. Rauf's book was reissued by two American arms of the Muslim Brotherhood: the Islamic Society of North America and the International Institute of Islamic Thought. Note that the Brotherhood was at the center of our government's recent prosecution of a charitable front, the Holy Land Foundation, for sending millions of dollars to Hamas. It identified ISNA (which housed and directly funded Holy Land) and IIIT as participants in its "grand Jihad" aimed at "destroying the Western Civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house"..

The Ground Zero mosque is a very bad idea.
