I am taking a break from blogging this summer, but hope to be back in full swing in September. Please take time to look around the blog, there is a lot for you here. I am still surprised that many do not understand Agenda 21 and the role the UN is playing in the downfall of the US. If you don’t know what I am speaking of, make it your duty to learn. There are many, many articles on this site to explain it to you. You will be shocked.
Have a great summer.

“From the Gulf ~ An Exclusive PSC Online film documentary showing the voice of the people and the public outrage over the lack of response by both BP and the Federal Government, over the solution, containment, clean-up, and economic/ecological damage. Everyone interviewed has given full permission to speak their mind freely. At the release of this film, BP has announced the latest cap has been successful in stopping the gusher 5,000 miles below. We remain guardedly optimistic. Please pray that the oil has been stopped, but let us NOT forget the devastation of this crisis, and we MUST not let this be cast to the back of the headlines. The gulf is still full of oil, lives are still devastated, and people are still hurting. It will not end when the oil stops flowing. “

Did you see Byron York’s column today? Obama Administration favors Al Jazeera to Congress for news on NASA plans
NASA’s Muslim outreach: Al Jazeera told first

Lawmakers across Capitol Hill, both Democrats and Republicans, were surprised to learn recently that the Obama administration has made reaching out to Muslim nations a top priority for the space agency NASA. They will probably be more surprised to learn that administration officials told the Middle East news organization Al Jazeera about it before they told Congress.
Rep. Pete Olson, the ranking Republican on the House Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics, got a call from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden on June 28, the day the White House released its new long-term plan for the space program. “He ran down some of the things from the president’s new space policy, and mentioned outreach to Muslims,” Olson recalls. “That stunned me. I didn’t believe it.”
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the Democrat who chairs the subcommittee (and is also married to astronaut Mark Kelly), got a briefing from Bolden the same day, according to a spokesman.
As it happens, Bolden’s calls to Giffords and Olson came several days after Bolden discussed the Muslim initiative with Al Jazeera. According to a NASA spokesman, Bolden sat down with Al Jazeera’s Imran Garda on June 17, during a stop in Doha, Qatar. Bolden’s Mideast trip, which was timed to mark the first anniversary of President Obama’s June 2009 Muslim outreach speech, was devoted to pursuing “a new beginning of the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world.”
During the interview, Bolden told Al Jazeera that the “foremost” mission he had been given by Obama was “to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.”
The Al Jazeera interview did not air until June 30, after the Obama space plan was released and Bolden briefed members of Congress. But there’s no question Al Jazeera got the word first.
