Shabbat Shalom 28 Adar II 5768

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King
Patriot, Zionist, unifier and messenger of peace

"God Damn America!" These words echo through the auditorium of a south side Chicago church, while thousands of African American congregants cheer the damnation of a country that Dr. Martin Luther King praised and loved. The members of Trinity United Church of Christ will only speak of praise for their spiritual leader, Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., who has recently garnered national attention for his anti-America, anti-Semitic and racist preachings. The same church goers that applaud Wright will also have praise for Dr. King, but doing so they show themselves to be ignorant or hypocritical. Dr. Wright is a man of hate and separatism, while Dr. King preached peace and unity. You cannot agree with both.

There lies the problem America, especially black America has faced since the assassination of the civil rights leader. Who will continue to lead them through the promised land after King led them to it? That leader did not emerge after King's death and forty years later the civil rights movement has become a tool of profit for poverty pimps and race-baters such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and on a lesser level pastors who follow the separatist doctrine of Rev. Wright.

Every year on the anniversary of King's death I think about the impact his murder has had on America since that tragic day in Memphis. His message of hope, love and understanding are often repeated, but not implemented. Division, blame and sometimes separation spew from the mouth of today's self-proclaimed civil rights and community leaders. When the ideas of self-help, family responsibility and criticism of culture are mentioned by politicians, commentators and lesser known African Americans, the finger pointing and accusations of racist and uncle Tom are immediately unleashed. Why, what are people afraid of?

I don't have a definite answer, but it has to do with leadership and having a bully pulpit. People by nature crave leadership and direction. When there is no clear moral authority, people seek answers and guidance from those who tell them what they want to hear.

It's not your fault, you are owed this, blame white America, blame the Jews, blame somebody else for your lot in life. These are the words that black America hears because this is the message delivered by the Jesse Jackson's, Louis Farrakhan's and Rev. Wright's of the world. Dr. King never blamed anyone for the problems facing his people, he blamed the lack of equality and ignorance for the strife of black people across America. He preached the words of one of America's forefathers, Benjamin Franklin who said, "God helps those who helps themselves."

That is what King asked and expected of all Americans, which is how he unified races, religions and cultures. Today with the help of guilt-ridden white liberals and the mainstream media, the division kings own the voices that supposedly speak for African Americans and they don't speak of unity, they speak of blame.

There is a famous photo of Dr. King with his aides on the balcony of his Memphis motel room, the day before he was murdered. That moment captured on film not only shows Dr. King right before his death, but what would become the start of his dream being corrupted by Jesse Jackson who is standing next to him.

That photo always reminds me of how America was on the right track toward racial equality and understanding and in an instant it would be derailed and used as a business opportunity for Jackson and future self-proclaimed civil rights leaders who would go on to find personal fortune as they hijack the dream of one of the greatest men to ever grace our world.

Dr. King we miss you and need you.


Bad day for Barack
Obama endorsed by Hanoi Jane and Jimmy Carter

How does a candidate for President anger war veterans, especially those who served in Vietnam? Have Jane Fonda publicly declare her support for your candidacy. That is exactly what happened yesterday as Fonda told paparrazi who asked her who she was voting for and she turned toward the camera and said, "Obama!"

I can imagine the four-letter words spewing from Obama and his campaign manager, David Axelrod, as they saw the media reports yesterday. Something tells me that Fonda was referred to as a word she recently made headlines for herself.

After dozens of reports about Obama and his anti-Israel foreign policy team and of course his Farrakhan loving anti-Semitic pastor, Obama will be receiving the support of former President Jimmy Carter, who has been an anti-Israel advocate since he blames the Jews for his 1980 re-election debacle.

Carter who has been labeled by some as a "treacherous" anti-Semite, has been expected to endorse Obama for months and why not. Obama has hired numerous incompetents that worked for Carter during his Presidency, so undoubtedly the Illinois senator thinks highly of the former President.

Obama has been referred to as the second coming of Carter as well as the Black Jimmy Carter. Receiving his endorsement seems only natural and logical.

Ask yourself the following. Do you want to be on the side of Jane Fonda and Jimmy Carter? I didn't think so. Personally I rather have my eyes gauged out and have lemon juice poured in my sockets. But that's just me.


Hey Al, it's getting colder
More proof that Gore is full of it

According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), temperatures world-wide will drop this year. This means that global temperatures have not risen since 1998. Let me say that again. Temperatures have not risen in ten years and have dropped this year. So Al, once again, where is my global warming?

As this new report comes out, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton made statements this past week praising Gore's work and inviting him into their administrations if God-forbid either is elected President.

As I write this post, the temperature in Chicago is about 39 degrees with a high temperature expected to reach the low 40's. The average high temperatures for this time of the year is about 53 degrees. We are finally expected to consistently be at that temperature later this week, two weeks after Spring began. So yet again Al, where is my global warming?

By the way the WMO expects a cooler summer due to something called "La Nina." A natural phenomenon, which I'm sure Gore will claim is caused by fat Americans driving SUV's.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr....was a Republican....the ignorance of many Black Americans to not only know this but to not know why is amazing to me! Sadly, I suppose if I took a bunch of tainted kool-aide into Trinity and told the congregation that it was a new form of communion, many would drink. Some will read this an not get it! That is the problem in my community
