RNS - Religion News Service, apologizes for inaccurate story on Delta Air Lines.

The liberal web site Huffington Post ran one of the first stories last week about Delta Air Lines discriminating against Jews after they carried the story from RNS, the Religion News Service. Now, five days later, Huffington Post updated their web site with an apology from RNS for the inaccurate coverage. Here is a statement from the Delta Air Lines web site that brought this to my attention.
Media outlet admits incomplete and inaccurate reporting on Delta
June 27, 2011

The Religion News Service, which ran an inaccurate story last week claiming Delta discriminates against Jewish people that was then picked up by mainstream media, ran a retraction Friday acknowledging its inaccuracies in an editor’s note.

“The RNS story on Delta Air Lines’ pending partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines that was distributed on June 23 contained incomplete information about Saudi visa policies and U.S. Jews’ ability to fly Delta flights to Saudi Arabia. The story was not fully edited according to RNS standards,” said the retraction that ran at the bottom of an updated story on HuffingtonPost.com Friday.

“RNS takes very seriously its commitment to accuracy, balance and thorough reporting, and the June 23 story failed to meet those expectations. Steps are being taken to correct and improve our internal editing process. We regret that the story was transmitted with incomplete information, as well as any unintended implication that Delta would be adopting policies of the Saudi government.”

From the Huffington Post:

The RNS story on Delta Air Lines’ pending partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines that was distributed on June 23 contained incomplete information about Saudi visa policies and U.S. Jews’ ability to fly Delta flights to Saudi Arabia. The story was not fully edited according to RNS standards:

-While Saudi Arabia does not issue visas to citizens carrying Israeli passports, Saudi officials say an Israeli stamp in a U.S. passport is not a barrier to entry, even for a stop in transit.

-While Saudi Arabia does not allow non-Islamic religious articles within its borders, religious identity and a passenger’s religious articles are not barriers to flights on either Delta or Saudi Arabian Airlines flights.

-Airline alliance programs typically allow passengers on one airline to book tickets on another, or redeem frequent flyer points on partner airlines. On Friday, Delta said such “code-sharing” agreements will not be part of its alliance with Saudi Arabian Airlines, nor will Delta passengers be able to redeem Delta frequent flyer miles on the Saudi airline.

RNS takes very seriously its commitment to accuracy, balance and thorough reporting, and the June 23 story failed to meet those expectations. Steps are being taken to correct and improve our internal editing process. We regret that the story was transmitted with incomplete information, as well as any unintended implication that Delta would be adopting policies of the Saudi government.
This false, outrageous and inflammatory accusation against Delta Air Lines that lit up a firestorm of protests on the Internet even sparked a request for a Federal investigation as reported by USA Today.
Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk (R) called Friday for the Federal Aviation Administration to investigate allegations Delta Airlines blocked Jewish passengers from flying as part of an agreement with a Saudi Arabian airline.
USA Today reported Thursday on rumors circulating Internet that as part of Saudi Arabian Airlines’s agreement to join Delta’s SkyTeam alliance, Delta would enforce a Saudi ban on passengers from Israel and non-Islamic religious artifacts.
Delta denied the accusation, saying it had a nondiscrimination policy, but Kirk still called for an investigation Friday.
“I am deeply concerned by the June 23, 2011, report in USA Today entitled ‘U.S. Jews not able to fly on Delta flights to Saudi Arabia,’” Kirk wrote in a letter to FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt. “If true, this policy appears to violate the U.S. Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause while undermining the purpose of the Federal Aviation Administration – to promote the safety and expansion of U.S. civil aviation.

A closer look at the false rumor about Delta Air Lines and Saudi Arabia.

It appears that false rumors, no matter how vicious, are virtually impossible to stop once they start. Last week a Washington attorney named Jeffrey Lovitky who works for the American Center for Law and Justice and Rabbi Abraham Cooper from the Simon Wiesenthal Center set off a firestorm among the conservative blogs after they made some startling, but baseless, claims that Delta Air Lines had entered into a partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines and that all Delta flights flying to cities in Saudi Arabia would begin to deny passage to Jews. On June 22, the highly regarded conservative web site WorldNet Daily ran this story:
Delta adopts Saudi 'no-Jew' fly policy
By Bob Unruh

Delta Air Lines' plan to add Saudi Arabian Airlines to its SkyTeam Alliance of partnering companies would require the American carrier to ban Jews and holders of Israeli passports from boarding flights from New York or Washington bound for Jeddah, prompting outraged accusations of illegal religious discrimination.

The issue, which has caught the attention of the American Center for Law and Justice already, was raised when Washington attorney Jeffrey Lovitky was perusing airline procedures for travel.

"As we learn more about the issue and facts, we are determined to ensure that American citizens do not face discrimination by airlines like Delta that are passenger code-sharing with Saudi Arabian Airlines," said Colby M. May, director and senior counsel of the ACLJ.

This was followed on Friday when Rabbi Abraham Cooper, who heads the Simon Wiesenthal Center, posted an Opinion on the Fox News web site purporting to be an open letter to Delta CEO Richard Anderson under the headline:
Is Delta Airlines Letting Itself Be Hijacked By Religious Bigots?
Pardon me for communicating with you this way, but you fobbed off inquiries by others to your Customer Care e-mail department. Since I represent 400,000 constituent families of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, I thought it would be more appropriate to communicate this way and let the rest of the American people in on an outrageous situation.

What would happen if a leading U.S. carrier voluntarily allows itself to be hijacked by bigots in order to open a new market? For example, what if it entered into an agreement with a foreign airline that would see to it that no blacks or Catholics or gays boarded code-shared flights destined to reach the partner’s home nation?

I think you know the answer.

Yet, that is what Delta Airlines appears to have done when your company announced plans to add Saudi Arabian Airlines to your SkyTeam Alliance. You see, under their rules, they require that Delta ban Jews and holders of Israeli passports from boarding flights from New York or Washington bound for Jeddah.

The rumor about the alliance between Delta Air Lines and Saudi Arabian Airlines originated with a press release that announced that the official airline of the fundamentalist Islamic government of Saudi Arabia was joining the 14 member airlines Skyteam alliance based in Amsterdam. What no one seemed to realize was the alliance between these companies was merely an Interline agreement which allows passengers to book tickets on multiple carriers, similar to the standard interline agreements American Airlines, US Airways and Alaska Airlines have with Saudi Arabian Airlines. Delta even issued a clarifying press statement to stop the rumors. No one took notice of the statement or the part that said that Delta Air Lines does NOT FLY to any city in Saudi Arabia and DOES NOT codeshare with any other airline that does. (A codeshare is when one airline buys a block of seats on another airline and places its flight designator, or "code," onto a flight operated by a different airline. The arrangement allows airlines to sell tickets on each other's flights.)
 “Delta Air Lines does not discriminate nor do we condone discrimination against any of our customers in regards to age, race, nationality, religion, or gender,” Delta said in a statement Friday. “Delta does not operate service to Saudi Arabia and does not codeshare with any airline on flights to that country. Delta does not intend to codeshare or share reciprocal benefits, such as frequent flier benefits, with Saudi Arabian Airlines, which we have confirmed with SkyTeam, an Amsterdam-based 14-member global airline alliance.

“Delta’s only agreement with Saudi Arabian Airlines is a standard industry interline agreement, which allows passengers to book tickets on multiple carriers, similar to the standard interline agreements American Airlines, US Airways and Alaska Airlines have with Saudi Arabian Airlines,” the statement said. “All of the three global airline alliances – Star, which includes United Airlines; oneworld, which includes American Airlines, and SkyTeam, which includes Delta – have members that fly to Saudi Arabia and are subject to that country’s rules governing entry.”
Then the web site Atlas Shrugs, run by the ever-vigilant anti-Islamist pro-Israel author Pamela Geller, jumped into the controversy by publishing a story story on Friday, June 24th, that consisted of some screen captures from Delta's web site that advised travelers about the strict Islamic religious laws in Saudi Arabia suggesting that Delta condoned these laws. These travelers advisories are posted on other airline web sites and originate from the web site of the U.S. State Dept.
“Delta Sharia Airlines”

“While Delta Airlines obfuscates and dances around the truth (they have really perfected the art of taqiyya), their website tells the story. Go to the Delta Airlines website and look at the information listed there. Delta doesn’t just work with Saudi Airlines; they post their info on the Delta website.

Not only are Jews not welcome, but women are told to cover their arms and to wear heavy clothing, among other sharia compliant rules. Further, Muslim women are restricted from travel without a husband or immediate member of the family.”

Then yet another web site called Jihad Watch posted two stories about Delta Air Lines with even greater inflammatory headlines.

"Delta Airlines adds Saudi airline to partner companies, will uphold "No Jew" policy on flights to kingdom”
Delta scrambles for damage control in wake of taking on Saudi airline's "No Jew" policy
and quoted a comment by Rabbi Jason Miller in the liberal blog The Huffington Post that had a most inflammatory title: ""Delta Adopts Saudi Arabian Airlines' No Jew Policy,"".

Pamela Gellers's compatriot Robert Spencer runs the anti-Islamic web site called Jihad Watch. I have the utmost regard for both of these people due to the extensive coverage they provide to the spread of Islamic terrorism in America and the world. But it pains me to have to admit that while they permit opinions that disagree with them on their web sites, neither has seen fit to admit they fell for the false rumor against Delta Air Lines.
Over the weekend I posted several comments to the Jihad Watch blog along with supporting facts about the false rumor and one reader went to the trouble to write an email to Delta for a clarification. The reader posted Delta's reply:
Delta does not plan to codeshare or share Frequent Flier benefits with Saudi Arabian Airlines. Delta’s only agreement with Saudi Arabian Airlines is a standard industry interline agreement, which allows passengers to book tickets on multiple carriers, similar to the standard interline agreements that all U.S. legacy carriers have with Saudi Arabian Airlines. All of the three global airline alliances – Star, which includes United Airlines; oneworld, which includes American Airlines, and SkyTeam, which includes Delta – have members that fly to Saudi Arabia and are subject to that country’s rules governing entry.

It is important to note that visa requirements to enter any country are dictated by that nation’s government, not the airlines, and they apply to anyone entering the country regardless of whether it’s by plane, bus or train. We, like all international airlines, are required to comply with all applicable laws governing entry into every country we serve.
I even went to Delta's web site and downloaded the following map of their routes to the Middle East and you will note that none of their flights go to Saudi Arabia. In fact, Saudi Arabia isn't even mentioned. Delta has only one flight to any Muslim country and that is Dubai. Anyone can easily confirm that Delta doesn't fly to Saudi Arabia by calling their reservations office at 1-800-221-1212 and ask them. Apparently, non of these bloggers bothered to do so. Click the map for a larger view.
Finally, one major news outlet, The Associated Press, reported a story that clarified the issue. The story was carried by Yahoo News, Canada.
Delta doesn't fly to Saudi Arabia, but the Internet does; some upset over Saudi visa policies
Delta Air Lines found itself with a public-relations headache after the online world lit up with talk that the airline wouldn't fly Jews to Saudi Arabia.
That's not true. Saudi Arabia decides who gets in the country and who doesn't, not the airlines. Delta doesn't even fly there. Still, by Friday, a U.S. senator wanted an investigation, Delta was professing its tolerance, and some Twitter users called for went so far as to mention a boycott.
“Saudi Arabia decides who gets in the country and who doesn't, not the airlines. Delta doesn't even fly there. Because Saudi Arabian Airlines is becoming a member of SkyTeam, Delta was singled out in reports that ran Thursday and were passed around social media. U.S. carriers already partner with other airlines that fly to Saudi Arabia, including Air France and the German airline Lufthansa.”
Now it seems that many conservative bloggers, many of whom I have respected, have succumbed to the same dilemma liberals have, they cannot admit when they made a mistake.

You should all be suspicious about the source of rumors and what may be behind them and what hidden agenda the perpetrators have. Delta is a mostly non-union company and has had numerous efforts by organized labor fail to get the workers to join them. Unions are mostly pro-Democrat and it would be well to their advantage to kill two birds with one stone if they could get a bunch of conservative bloggers to make fools of themselves spreading a false rumor. And what better way to serve Democrat's purpose than to destroy the credibility of the conservative bloggers with the 2012 elections looming in the near future.

Think about it.

Spreading false rumors is the best way to lose your credibility. So why is everyone saying Delta Air Lines has adopted a "no-Jew" policy ?

To the readers of WorldNet Daily, Atlas Shrugs and Jihad Watch.
It seems the entire conservative blogosphere is having a feeding frenzy over a misunderstanding of a single word "alliance" and no one has checked their facts or listened to the truth. This has become a classic example of how a false rumor starts and spreads. It should also be noted that the most valuable asset conservatives have is their credibility, and spreading false rumors is the best way to lose that credibility. Take the case being falsely made against Delta Air Lines.

These are the facts in this case.


This whole rumor is getting out of hand. First of all, Delta doesn't fly to Saudi Arabia. The only connection that exists between airlines is called a codeshare and Delta has no codeshare with Saudi Arabian Airlines. The alliance with Skyteam is not a codeshare where one airline books passengers on another airline. The word "alliance" is not a "partnership" as Jihad Watch claims but none of these people seem to understand the airline terminology. 
The travel advisories that Atlas Shrugs listed are the same as you would see on the CIA World Factbook (now available from the State Dept. web site) along with the names, addresses and phone numbers of the American Consulates or Embassies. While we all know it is a fact that openly carrying a bible or other Christian or Jewish symbol in Saudi Arabia will get you arrested, advising travelers about it doesn't mean the airline condones it or even flies to that country.

I have been a long time reader and supporter of both Atlas Shrugs and WorldNet Daily and Jihad Watch and I am a retired 40-year employee of Delta Air Lines. I found the story about their "no-Jew" policy to Saudi Arabia to be extremely biased and inaccurate and I think these web sites should print a retraction. While I sympathize with the anti-Muslim sentiments of those who commented on this story, since I am not a Muslim myself, I think this story is so completely false it must be corrected.

First of all, EVERY airline is required to follow the rules of the country they fly into. That means a passenger would not be allowed to board a flight from a departing city if that passenger would be refused entry into the destination country. If a country requires a visa, then every passenger boarding a flight to that country must have the visa or be denied boarding. If any airline carried a passenger that didn't have a proper visa they would be fined.

Most importantly, according to Delta, they do not fly to Saudi Arabia so where did this story originate anyway. Here is the statement from the Delta Air Lines employees web site. I suggest Jihad Watch and Atlas Shrugs and WND.com print it.

Delta does not operate service or codeshares to Saudi Arabia

June 24, 2011

In January, SkyTeam announced that Saudi Arabian Airlines would join the alliance in 2012. Recently, World Net Daily or wnd.com inaccurately reported that Delta discriminates and has adopted a “no Jew” policy. These false rumors have spread throughout many social media and traditional news outlets.

“Delta Air Lines does not discriminate nor do we condone discrimination against any of our customers in regards to age, race, nationality, religion, or gender,” Delta said in a statement Friday. “Delta does not operate service to Saudi Arabia and does not codeshare with any airline on flights to that country. Delta does not intend to codeshare or share reciprocal benefits, such as frequent flier benefits, with Saudi Arabian Airlines, which we have confirmed with SkyTeam, an Amsterdam-based 14-member global airline alliance.

“Delta’s only agreement with Saudi Arabian Airlines is a standard industry interline agreement, which allows passengers to book tickets on multiple carriers, similar to the standard interline agreements American Airlines, US Airways and Alaska Airlines have with Saudi Arabian Airlines,” the statement said. “All of the three global airline alliances – Star, which includes United Airlines; oneworld, which includes American Airlines, and SkyTeam, which includes Delta – have members that fly to Saudi Arabia and are subject to that country’s rules governing entry.”

Saudi Arabian Airlines follows the same government-created visa rules that any carrier serving Saudi Arabia must. That includes the nearly a dozen carriers who are members of other airline alliances that fly to the Middle Eastern country every day.

Passengers who fly any international carrier – on SkyTeam or another alliance – must meet the requirements to gain a visa entry into Saudi Arabia.

Obama finally admits the truth.

Got the following picture from a friend via email tonight. The first thing it reminded me of was the truthfulness in the message. Barack Hussein Obama has been reducing our nation to ruin. In all likelihood, the assistance he was given throughout his life to advance his career in politics was all meant to achieve this moment. He has put us on the brink of bankruptcy, destroyed the value of our currency and our prestige among other countries and shredded the Constitution. These are all the things the enemies of our country have ever wanted to make it ripe for a takeover.
We must make sure Obama never gets another four years to finish the job he started.

A personal message to my readers.

Please excuse my absence. Since this blog began there has been an ongoing health crisis in my family. My wife of 51 years is suffering with Alzheimer's. That crisis has created a need for my attention that has consumed greater amounts of time as the disease progresses and I am the sole caregiver. I hope to write more to this blog as time permits but not as frequently as in the past.

Obama bumper stickers getting better every day.

Just got this in an email tonight. Gotta credit Obama for inspiring so much creativity.

Jeff Knox knows what's wrong with the NRA and so do I.

Readers of this blog know about my attempts to end my 43-year long Life Membership with the National Rifle Association. I became totally disillusioned with the strategy of the NRA to endorse and support 53 Democrats in the 2008 elections. 52 of those Democrats enabled Nancy Pelosi to become Speaker of the House because the Democrats had won the majority of the seats with NRA help. Thankfully, the Tea Party movement enabled a tidal wave of real conservatives to regain the House in 2010 but only after another attempt by the NRA to assist 56 Democrats to get elected. This time the NRA failed miserably and only 23 Democrats won.

Now I have found someone who knows more about the NRA than I do (although I never doubted there were many who did). That person is Jeff Knox, son of the late Neal Knox - past member of the Board of Directors of the NRA, who writes a column in The Firearms Coalition and WorldNet Daily News.

Just for openers, here is a juicy comment by Jeff Knox in his latest column on WND.com.
WorldNet Daily News
National organization fumbles ball in 2nd Amendment battle
Jeff Knox

One thing that is important for everyone concerned about Second Amendment rights to understand is that it's a bad idea to ever put all our eggs in one basket – especially a basket that has proven to be as unreliable as the NRA. We must always be vigilant and personally involved to keep the politicians – and the NRA – in line and on point.

Jeff Knox is a second-generation political activist and director of The Firearms Coalition. His writing can regularly be seen in Shotgun News and Front Sight magazines as well as here on WorldNetDaily.
Jeff Knox knows what goes on inside the NRA. He reports these tidbits about the leaderships perks that come from the millions of dollars that NRA members contribute.
Randy Kozuch, long-time head of NRA-ILA State & Local, moved to new duties with the NRA Foundation – the education/charity wing of NRA. To fill the vacancy, State & Local was taken over by Chuck Cunningham, who has been heading up Federal Affairs for the past several years. Former NRA-ILA Executive Director James J. Baker was then installed as Director of Federal Affairs.

Baker has been pulling down a couple of hundred thousand dollars a year as a consultant for NRA-ILA for the past several years, but that has probably at least doubled with his return to the official family. Chris Cox remains at the top of the ILA food chain as executive director – overseeing all ILA operations for about three quarters of a million dollars per year (roughly half what his boss, Wayne LaPierre, takes home).
Here are some additional comments on the inner workings of the NRA from two past columns written by Jeff Knox. The subject matter is dated but the implications are still relevant today. 
NRA Making Deals Again
Written by Jeff Knox, on 07-31-2008 09:35

Acording to The Hill newspaper, the NRA has made a deal with House Democrats on a "compromise" DC gun law bill.

The burning question now is, "Why?".

If the report is accurate, NRA has agreed to support a compromise bill that would force DC to minimally comply with the Supreme Court's June ruling in the Heller case. The city has so far enacted emergency legislation which makes it very difficult for a DC resident to legally own a handgun or have it available for self-defense in the home. Republicans have introduced a sweeping firearms reform bill for the District, but it has been bottled up by the Democrat leadership. Republicans were trying to get pro-gun Democrats to join them in a petition to force the bill onto the House floor for a vote. Democrats don't want to debate and vote on anything as contentious as a serious DC gun bill so pro-gun Democrats led by John Dingell (D-Michigan), Mike Ross (D-Arkansas), and Mike Tanner (D-Tennessee) reached out to NRA for a deal.

Republicans are rightously furious over the deal which they were hoping to use as a wedge issue in the coming elections.

Again, the burning question is "Why?". Why would NRA make this deal at this time? What advantage does such a deal give them or the gun rights movement?
We are heading into an election in which many experts are predicting major Democrat gains. The Presidential candidates are both unappealing to GunVoters and have been somewhat lulled into a sense of security by the Heller victory. And there have been no contentious, gun-related bills debated in Congress to fire voters up and separate the sheep from the goats in a long, long time. Now would be an excellent time to have a loud debate about gun control and DC's outrageous response to the Heller decision is an excellent topic for such a debate. GunVoters are all very aware of the Heller decision and DC's continuing refusal to comply with the clear intent of that decision. Pro-gun members of Congress are pushing a discharge petition that would force the fight to the floor. Even without this NRA deal, it is very unlikely that the 218 signatures needed on the discharge petition could be garnered, but the petition itself would be a good barometer for judging a politician's commitment to gun rights. The fight and the grading would be over the discharge petition rather than the actual bill. With Heller and others having filed lawsuits to force DC to comply with the ruling, action by Congress is not really desirable as it would nullify those lawsuits, but that shouldn't really be a concern as long as the core bill is strong enought in its support of gun rights to be thoroughly unpalatable to the Democrat leadership. Nancy Pelosi is never going to allow a sweeping gun rights statement to come out of "her House."

So that brings us back to this agreement and the question, "Why?". With this agreement a compromise bill which very narrowly addresses the DC issues wuold be brought forward with NRA support. This bill (which should be introduced later today) is expected to be narrow and limited enough to be acceptable to Pelosi and company. That means it can easily pass through the House - where pro-gun members would have little choice but to vote for it - and into the Senate where, again, it ahould face little opposition. This strategy kills the lawsuits while shielding the anti-gun and faux-pro-gun mambers of Congress thereby effectively removing the only issue around which GunVoters could have been effectively rallied...

I recently wrote a piece for The Knox Report that described how a future "assault weapons" ban might be passed with NRA support. The article was intended to be a warning to NRA members to keep a close eye on their organization because there is a history of the group making seriously bad compromises that they call victories. While not as dramatic as an assault weapons ban, this appears to be another one of those mistakes.

NRA Pushing Bad Bill in Iowa

Monday, 14 December 2009 04:23 Jeff Knox

Last year two state organizations, Iowa Carry and Iowa Gun Owners, banged heads with competing legislation and competing strategies. Iowa Carry was backing a “shall issue” bill which included mandatory training requirements and several other concessions. Iowa Gun Owners was pushing an Alaska-style bill which removed restrictions on concealed carry and offered an optional permit system for the sake of reciprocity.

The Alaska bill had 25 cosponsors among the 100 members of the Iowa House and failed to pass by just one vote ending in a 49 – 49 tie in the final minutes of the legislative session.

After such an impressive showing, one would expect advocates to unite around the Alaska-style bill for this legislative session with an eye towards either passing a very good bill, or forcing a clear record vote on such a bill and using that vote against opponents in the next General Election. Instead, after ignoring the state for decades, NRA has decided to ride their white horse into Iowa to save the day by amending the already weak Iowa Carry bill to make it not only weaker, but to actually include some provisions which are worse than existing law – snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Under the NRA proposal, not only would anyone ever convicted of a felony or a violent misdemeanor be barred from concealed carry, anyone ever arrested on such a charge would be barred. The proposal also bars anyone with “a written finding by any agency of a state or the United States sustaining an allegation of abuse against another person,” leaving the door open for a ban on concealed carry for a parent who spanks their child or a person victimized by false accusations from a former spouse or intimate. The NRA says that a “paper trail” demonstrating a history of violence or abuse is enough. A judge and jury – due process – are just superfluous. This portion is supposed to improve on the current laws provision that bars a permit from anyone with a “history of violence.” The language about violent misdemeanors addresses this, but even that raises questions. Many people have been cited at some point for involvement in a fist-fight or some such petty up-scuttle. Is it reasonable to bar anyone so cited from the ability to defend themselves? (Note: This provision was retained unchanged in the newer version of the proposal.)
Last year I became a Life Member of Gun Owners of America, and strongly suggest that anyone who wants to protect their right to own guns should join this group. The GOA doesn't play games with the politicians. We can no longer afford the luxury of helping Democrats get elected and hope they do the right thing. I won't give one damn dime to any organization that endorses a Democrat for anything.

Some interesting facts about the magical birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama, II.

The following piece of information containing some surprising facts about the data contained on Barack Hussein Obama, II's long form birth certificate has been circulating the Internet via email. I decided to check them out to see how many I could confirm.
Does anyone have a map printed in 1961 or 1962 showing Kenya on it?

The problem with this ‘new’ birth certificate Obama’s, is that it’s, well….new. It lists his birthday as August 4, 1961, then lists his father’s native country as Kenya. The problem with that is Kenya didn’t exist until 1963; it was British East Africa or East Africa Protectorate until then. It also lists the hospital of his birth as Kapi’olani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital, which didn’t exist until 1978. Prior to that time it was Kauaikeolani Children’s Hospital.

It is also dated April 25, 2011, with Dr. Alvin T. Onaka signing to the stamp of “I certify this is a true copy or abstract of the record on file in the Hawaii Department of State Health”. Being an abstract does not mean it is real or official; it means it matches what is in the electronic system, which would have been put in some time after 1978 because of the hospital name, and as recently as April 25, 2011, because of the date, or any time in between.

Also………at this time, 1961, they were still recorded as ‘ negro’. The term “African American” had not yet been coined in the interest of political correctness.
Here is a photo of the long form birth certificate that was issued to the news media by the White House.  Click the image for a larger view.

Fact 1: 
Both Wikipedia, History World and the Encyclopedia Britanica confirms that the British Empire established the East Africa Protectorate in 1895, from 1920 known as the Kenya Colony. The independent Republic of Kenya was formed in December 1963. On 12 December 1964 the Republic of Kenya was proclaimed, and Jomo Kenyatta became Kenya's first president.

Whether or not the area once referred to as the Kenya Colony could be listed as "Kenya" two years before the nation called the Republic of Kenya was formed is not entirely clear.

Fact 2:
On Feb. 9, 2011 someone changed the Wikipedia information regarding the history of the hospital in Hawaii called Kapi’olani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital and caused the entry to be redirected. When you submit this name it redirects you to the new hospital name Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.
Wikipedia lists the revision history of all the changes made to the data and this entry regarding Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital has received more than 25 changes in just the first 5 months this year.  Wikipedia is an open source encyclopedia of information and anyone who wishes can become an online editor. Click the link to see the record of changes made on this entry.  Some people would edit part of the data and someone else would go in and remove it or change it. The most recent change was made on May 14, 2011 by someone at the IP address and this IP address belongs to the Dept. of Homeland Security. It is comforting to know that the agency responsible for securing our nation against terrorism is working to edit the information on Wikipedia. Here is the WHOIS record of this IP address

Here is what Wikipedia now says about Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital. It is very interesting to see how much interest the name of this hospital has received and how many attempts were made to clarify its history.

Fact 3:
Self explanatory. The term "Negro" was used exclusively in the 1960's to designate the race of Black People or Colored People, not "African" as the birth certificate shows for Obama's father. Wikipedia explains it:
The word Negro is used in the English-speaking world to refer to a person of black ancestry or appearance, whether of African descent or not, prior to the shift in the lexicon of American and worldwide classification of race and ethnicity in the late 1960s. Modern language has been using since the late 1960s: Black; additionally, Black African for people native to the African continent, and Afro-American until from the late 1960s to 1990, and African American after 1990 for people in U.S.A..
The long form birth certificate presented to the public by Barack Hussein Obama, II last April has been examined by forensic computer experts and proven to be a paste-up of several layers of data using Adobe Illustrator software. In other words it is a fake. Additional inconsistencies are that the name listed on this birth certificate is not exactly the same name on Barack Hussein Obama, II's passport.  Obama's passport does not use the extension "II' after his name. Anyone who has traveled by air will know that the exact name on your photo identification must match your records.
Obama's Social Security Number issued in Connecticut was previously issued to another person (who also died in Hawaii) and the Social Security Administration says they never reissue these numbers. The closer anyone looks at this man the more questions remain than answers. Barack Hussein Obama, II /aka/ Barry Soetoro is truly a man who never was.

Winds of Jihad: OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden.

I particularly like what the retired Marine Corps officer had to say on this. There is nothing new in the world of politics. Some events are staged for reasons to shift the spotlight away from other events. Osama bin Laden should have been taken care off during the Clinton administration when they were given the opportunity but the Clinton's didn't consider it important at the time. Now that Barack Hussein Obama, II is up to his eyeballs fending off the proof surrounding his phony birth certificate and Connecticut-issued Social Security number and Project Gunrunner investigation and faked unemployment figures and failed job stimulus programs - he had to get everyone's attention on something else.

OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden.

Navy Seal Team 6
Just to show you what an unscrupulous, lying sack of *hit Obama is…
Let’s be clear on this:
OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden.

An American sailor, who Obama, just a few weeks ago, was debating on whether or not to PAY, did.
In fact, if you remember a little less than two years ago, his administration actually charged and attempted to court-martial 3 Navy Seals from Seal Team Six, when a terrorist suspect they captured, complained they had punched him during the take down and bloodied his nose. His administration further commented how brutal they were. The left were calling them Nazi’s and Baby Killers.
Now all of a sudden, the very brave men they vilified are now heroes when they make his administration look good in the eyes of the public. Obama just happened to be the one in office when the CIA finally found the guts and our sailors took him out. Essentially, Obama only gave an answer: Yes or No, to him being taken out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an AMERICAN victory!! Forward on IF YOU AGREE!”

2011: “I put together Seal Team 6 to take out Bin Laden.”
2008: “Bin Laden is innocent until proven guilty, and must be captured alive and given a fair trial.”
2011: “I authorized Seal Team 6 to kill Bin Laden.”
2008: ” Guantanamo is entirely unnecessary, and the detainees should not be interrogated.”
2011: “Vital intelligence was obtained from Guantanamo detainees that led to our locating Bin Laden.”


2004 Vatican order forbids reading passages from the Qur'an during Catholic Mass.

Jihad Watch reported this story today about a Jesuit congregation in Charlotte, North Carolina that was planning to read passages from the hate book called the Qur'an during a Catholic Mass. The plan was canceled after someone reminded the Jesuits that the Vatican had issued a very lengthy order back in 2004 that forbid this practice. Many local churches have adopted a policy of diversity similar the the one on Charlotte, N.C. and have invited local Muslim clerics to read from the Qur'an to Catholics attending Holy Mass. This mindless attitude attempting to placate the feelings of Catholics and Protestants and even Jews to accept Muslims into their religious community is both stupid and foolish. Islam does not allow Muslims to co-exist alongside "the believers in The Book" (the Holy Bible) and hundreds of passages in the Qur'an command Muslims to wage war against all non-believers. Thankfully, someone has discovered an official Vatican publication that sets the rules for this and it should be brought to the attention of every parish in America.
Them's the rules: Liturgical regulations prevent Qur'an reading at a Catholic Mass in North Carolina
"Jesuit parish cancels Qur’an reading," from Catholic Culture, June 10 (thanks to Twostellas):
A Jesuit parish in Charlotte has canceled plans to read the Qur’an from the pulpit on June 26, the feast of Corpus Christi.
“Just having something public is not going to be a big, big deal here, but to have someone come in and read from the Qur’an and to recognize publicly the existence of Islam and to reverence and respect is a good thing for the Church to do,” Father Patrick Earl, SJ, said on May 27. “I’ve heard from Muslim imams about what they and their congregations have suffered just from the fear, the fear of what they call Islamophobia.”
On June 7, Father Earl announced the cancellation of the event; he said that he had been unaware that 2004 Vatican instruction Redemptionis Sacramentum forbade such readings. The document states that “it is strictly to be considered an abuse to introduce into the celebration of Holy Mass elements that are contrary to the prescriptions of the liturgical books and taken from the rites of other religions.”
I confirmed the exact quote in the Vatican text of the
Redemptionis Sacramentum directly from the Vatican web site link below.

Chapter III
3. The Other Parts of the Mass
[79.] Finally, it is strictly to be considered an abuse to introduce into the celebration of Holy Mass elements that are contrary to the prescriptions of the liturgical books and taken from the rites of other religions.

I hope this gets brought to the attention of some of our more liberal clergy before they plan to conduct similar propaganda sessions to their captive audiences.

Sarah Palin & Allen West: My dream ticket for the 2012 Republican Presidential campaign.

The following blog post comes from the New Zealand web site of Trevor Loudon. I cannot agree more with Mr. Loudon's conclusions. Our only hope of saving Western Civilization is to encourage these two great Americans to enter the race and to support and elect Sarah Palin and Allen West for president and vice-president of the United States. As previously noted, Trevor Loudon runs the web site that used to be called the New Zeal and this web site has the largest depository of background information on Barack Hussein Obama, II in the world. The New Zeal was the first web site to discover Obama's connection to the Marxist-Socialist New Party in Chicago, Illinois when he first entered politics.

2012: Last Chance to Save Western Civilization?
Submitted by Trevor on June 9, 2011 – 4:53 am

At last! Someone who gets what this game is all about.

That is, the looming  military destruction of mankind’s last, best hope – the United States of America, and the  subsequent end of Western civilization.

From the American Spectator, Peter Ferrara’s The Coming Crash of 2013
    Because of the willfully mindless irresponsibility and ideological self-indulgence of Obamanomics, America is mortally vulnerable to another recession at any time soon. The result would be precisely the national bankruptcy of Greece, where we cannot raise in the world credit markets the further debt to finance what will be well over half of our budgeted federal spending. We are already borrowing and adding to the debt to finance 43% of our federal spending today.

    That is bad enough for a puny, insignificant nation like Greece, where riots increasingly leave the government dysfunctional, with the EU likely to take over the country effectively. But what is the effect when that happens to the world’s supposed superpower? America financed World War II by running up our national debt to its all-time record as a percent of GDP (for now). But that won’t be possible when we have already run ourselves into national bankruptcy.

    Our potential military enemies will be quite aware of this historic vulnerability of America. Just as Reagan brought us Peace through Strength, Obamanomics will be inviting War through Weakness. With a 2013 American economic collapse that will also disable the entire West, the world’s uncivilized rogues from Russia, to China, to North Korea, to the Middle East Islamists dreaming of renewed world conquest, will all be tempted probably beyond resistance and reason to strike. They don’t need even to attack the homeland to deal America a decisive defeat. They can just decimate our suddenly overwhelmed allies, from Israel to South Korea to Taiwan to our allies in the Middle East, let alone some even in Europe.

    The only way to get off this bullet train to oblivion is to radically reverse Obamanomics in dogged detail. The American people get one more chance to do that in 2012.
2012 is not the last chance for America. It is the last chance for the planet – period.

If Obama,  the  Democrats and RINO traitors are allowed to completely destroy the American economy, America’s multiple enemies will almost certainly unite to wipe the United States of America and its few remaining allies off the map.

This isn’t about recession versus depression, this is about survival versus annihilation.

Once America falls, world totalitarian dictatorship will quickly follow. Civilization, as we know it will end.

Those are the stakes readers. Sorry to be so blunt and bleak, but that is what we are facing if Obama is not defeated, and the republic not  turned around,  in only a few short months time.

If Obama and his allies are not defeated in 2012, the West may possibly survive, but only by a miracle, not by our own efforts.

We can all believe in miracles, but would you bet your child’s life on one?


Source of Barack Hussein Obama, II's Connecticut Social Security Number revealed.

This post comes from the web site Winds of Jihad. Although it contains no sources for the information it does contain some previously undisclosed new information on how Barack Hussein Obama, II happens to have a Social Security Number issued in the state of Connecticut, where he has never lived. When combined with the fraudulent long form birth certificate that he displayed to the American public and which is available on the White House web site, and which has been proven by forensic computer experts to be fake, this news about the SSN is astounding. For additional references on the birth certificate see the following links:

The Plot Thickens

by sheikyermami on June 9, 2011
An intensive investigation has revealed the identity of the man whose Social Security number (SSN) is being used by President Obama: Jean Paul Ludwig, who was born in France in 1890, emigrated to the United States in 1924, and was assigned SSN 042-68-4425 (Obama’s current SSN) in or about March 1977. 
Ludwig lived most of his adult life in Connecticut .  Because of that, his SSN begins with the digits 042, which are among only a select few reserved for Connecticut residents. 
Obama never lived or worked in that state!  Therefore, there is no reason on earth for his SSN to start with the digits 042.  None whatsoever! 
Now comes the best part! Ludwig spent the final months of his life in Hawaii, where he died. 
Conveniently, Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, worked part-time in the Probate Office in the Honolulu Hawaii Courthouse, and therefore had access to the SSNs of deceased individuals. 
The Social Security Administration was never informed of Ludwig’s death, and because he never received Social Security benefits there were no benefits to stop and therefore, no questions were ever raised. 
The suspicion, of course, is that Dunham, knowing her grandson was not a U.S. citizen, either because he was born in Kenya or became a citizen of Indonesia upon his adoption by Lolo Soetoro simply scoured the probate records until she found someone who died who was not receiving Social Security benefits, and selected Mr. Ludwigs Connecticut SSN for Obama. 
Just wait until Trump gets past the birth certificate and onto the issue of Barry O’s use of a stolen SSN. You will see leftist heads exploding, because they will have no way of defending Obama. 
Although many Americans do not understand the meaning of the term “natural born” there are few who do not understand that if you are using someone else’s SSN it is a clear indication of fraud.

“The minarets are our bayonets, the domes our helmets, the mosques our barracks and the faithful our army.” Muslim clerics quote this so why hasn't our government questioned this?

Thanks to the lead from blogger Andrew Bostom and his article "Mosques as Barracks in America".
The title of my blog entry comes from a piece written in 1912 by Turkish nationalist poet Ziya Gokalp called "The Soldier's Prayer". The words, "the mosques our barracks" rings true today because of the wide spread increase in domestic terrorism, both planned and executed, by radical Muslims in America, all seem to originate from within Islamic mosques on American soil. Just recently two Muslims in the southern part of Kentucky were arrested by the FBI for planning to obtain military weapons to kill American soldiers. Yet most communities in America that have seen new mosques being built have taken a position that religions are exempt from police investigation. Thankfully, the New York City Police Department wasn't one of them.

Yesterday the NYPD publicly released a 90-page investigative report in Adobe PDF format on their official web site NYPDShield entitled Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat prepared by Mitchell D. Silber and Arvin Bhatt, Senior Intelligence Analysts, NYPD Intelligence Division. This report was compiled in 2007 and was, hopefully, distributed across America to every law enforcement agency. I say hopefully, because I wonder if any local authority ever saw it or read it and moreover did anything with it. Being politically correct is something like  being under the influence of a narcotic, it dulls the senses and stops the brain from thinking.

NYPD Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly wrote this introduction on page 2 of the report:
The New York City Police Department Page 2
While terrorism has been with us for centuries, the destructive power and global reach of modern terrorism is unprecedented. The entire world witnessed the attacks ofSeptember 11, 2001, but most of the attacks and attempted attacks since then have shown 9/11 to be an anomaly rather than the standard pattern for terrorism in the homeland. 
If the post-September 11th world has taught us anything, it is that the tools for conducting serious terrorist attacks are becoming easier to acquire. Therefore intention becomes an increasingly important factor in the formation of terrorist cells. This study is an
attempt to look at how that intention forms, hardens and leads to an attack or attempted attack using real world case studies. 
While the threat from overseas remains, many of the terrorist attacks or thwarted plots against cities in Europe, Canada, Australia and the United States have been conceptualized and planned by local residents/citizens who sought to attack their
country of residence. The majority of these individuals began as “unremarkable” - they had “unremarkable” jobs, had lived “unremarkable” lives and had little, if any criminal history. The recently thwarted plot by homegrown jihadists, in May 2007, against Fort
Dix in New Jersey, only underscores the seriousness of this emerging threat. Understanding this trend and the radicalization process in the West that drives “unremarkable” people to become terrorists is vital for developing effective counterstrategies. 
This realization has special importance for the NYPD and the City of New York. As one of the country’s iconic symbols and the target of numerous terrorist plots
since the 1990’s, New York City continues to be the one of the top targets of terrorists worldwide. Consequently, the NYPD places a priority on understanding what drives and defines the radicalization process. 
The aim of this report is to assist policymakers and law enforcement officials, both in Washington and throughout the country, by providing a thorough understanding of the kind of threat we face domestically. It also seeks to contribute to the debate among intelligence and law enforcement agencies on how best to counter this emerging threat by better understanding what constitutes the radicalization process. 
Raymond W. Kelly
Police Commissioner of the City of New York
Most often, when a concerned citizen such as myself raises questions about a new mosque in their community to some elected official as I did to the city commissioners in Florence, Kentucky, they will get a reply saying why they cannot do anything to interfere with the religious freedoms of any group that wants to set up a place of worship. That response sums up the root cause of the entire problem when a hate group masquerades under the guise of a religion. If the contents of the printed works used by the followers of Islam were examined in an impartial light, the number of times Islam called for the death and or torture or enslavement of non-Muslims, it would be considered hate speech by any definition. This is exactly what the New York City Police Dept. did in its investigation. But this seems to be the problem local governments are faced with when they rely on "established sources of information" such as the ultra liberal group named the Southern Poverty Law Center.(SPLC) often cited by the ultra leftist (pro-Muslim) Obama administration as a reliable source for identifying "hate groups". SPLC says nothing about Islamic propaganda calling for the death of non-believers in Islam. Yet  the SPLC defines a Hate Group as follows:
Active U.S. Hate Groups
The Southern Poverty Law Center counted 1,002 active hate groups in the United States in 2010. Only organizations and their chapters known to be active during 2010 are included.

All hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.

This list was compiled using hate group publications and websites, citizen and law enforcement reports, field sources and news reports.

Hate group activities can include criminal acts, marches, rallies, speeches, meetings, leafleting or publishing. Websites appearing to be merely the work of a single individual, rather than the publication of a group, are not included in this list. Listing here does not imply a group advocates or engages in violence or other criminal activity.
And it describes a hate group focused on "Christian Identity" this way:
Christian Identity
Of all the movements that have appeared among white racists in America, Christian Identity is surely one of the strangest.

Although nominally Christian, it owes little to even the most conservative of American Protestants. Indeed, its relationship with evangelicals and fundamentalists has generally been hostile due to the latter’s belief that the return of Jews to Israel is essential to the fulfillment of end-time prophecy.

Identity has created for itself a unique anti-Semitic and racist theology, but notwithstanding its curious beliefs, it rose in the 1980s to a position of commanding influence on the racist right. Only a prolonged period of aggressive efforts by law enforcement, together with the demise of influential leaders who were not replaced, brought about its present decline.
We need more accountability from our elected officials and they must begin to explain their reluctance to face the facts when they refuse to look at the causes of domestic terrorism and the dissemination of radical hate-filled material in masques. I plan on sending a copy of the NYPD investigative report to my county sheriff and to the Florence, Kentucky city commission to see if they have heard of it and read it and most importantly, to see what they are doing about it. I will write about their responses.
UPDATE June 7, 2011
Just discovered a very interesting fact about the NYPD report Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat. THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT VERSIONS.
The other version is 92 pages long also available in Adobe PDF format from http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/downloads/pdf/public_information/NYPD_Report-Radicalization_in_the_West.pdf

The difference is the longer report includes 2 pages of apologies beginning on page 11 titled STATEMENT OF CLARIFICATION to the Muslim community in NYC. The page indexes in both reports are different after page 12 as the 90 page report lacks the additional two pages.
The longer report comes from liberal Mayor Michael Bloomberg's NYC.gov web site and the shorter version comes from the NYPD Shield.org web site that belongs to the Police Department.
Another interesting fact is that both reports use the phrase Salafi Islam and define it as simply a fundamental variety of Islam which is incomplete. Salafi Islam is a synonym for Wahhabism, the official state religion of Saudi Arabia which has financed many mosques constructed in the United States. The Saudi government requires Wahhabi texts to be distributed in every mosque it helps to build. Wikipedia confirms this by also saying Wahhabi texts were found in these mosques. Wahhabi texts are totally against all forms of western culture and rife with incitements to violence.

A study conducted by the NGO Freedom House found Wahhabi publications in mosques in the United States. These publications included statements that Muslims should not only "always oppose" infidels "in every way", but "hate them for their religion ... for Allah's sake", that democracy "is responsible for all the horrible wars of the 20th century", and that Shia and certain Sunni Muslims were infidels.
UPDATE June 8, 2011
The web site Mapping Sharia has an analysis of a collection of violence-advocating texts that have been found in a majority of Islamic mosques in America. The analysis comes from a book entitled Shari’a and Violence in American Mosques.
When reading Shari’a and Violence in American Mosques, a picture emerges that may give researchers, as well as law enforcement officials, a way to monitor or potentially to predict where violent jihad may take root. Potential recruits who are swept up in this movement may find their inspiration and encouragement in a place with ready access to classic and modern literature that is positive toward jihad and violence, where highly Shari’a-adherent behavior is practiced, and where a society exists that in some form promotes a culture of martyrdom or at least engages in activities that are supportive of violent jihad. The mosque can be such a place.
The survey, Shari’a and Violence in American Mosques, found a strong correlation between the presence of severe violence-promoting literature and mosques featuring written, audio, and video materials that actually promoted such acts.
51% of U.S. mosques had texts that either advocated the use of violence in the pursuit of a Shari’a-based political order or advocated violent jihad; another 30% had texts that were moderately supportive of violence. 19% had no violent texts at all.
The mosques surveyed contained a variety of texts, ranging from contemporary printed pamphlets and handouts to classic texts of the Islamic canon. From the perspective of promoting violent jihad, the literature types were ranked in the survey from severe to moderate to nonexistent. The texts selected were all written to serve as normative and instructive tracts and are not scriptural. This is important because a believer is free to understand scripture literally, figuratively, or merely poetically when it does not have a normative or legal gloss provided by Islamic jurisprudence.
Alarmingly, many of these texts are currently endorsed by The American Muslim website in its “List of Recommended Books on Islam.” al-Misri’s Umdat al-Salik, the Tafsir Ibn Kathir, and the Qutb’s explicitly political tract, Milestones, are each singled-out for praise.
In addition, the list of recommended books contains other works by several writers included in the Mapping Shari’a Project‘s survey of texts which advocated the use of violence in the pursuit of a Shari’a-based political order or advocated violent jihad. The American Muslim recommends books by Maududi (author of Jihad in Islam and Tafhim al-Qur’an) and al-Nawawi (author of Riyad-us-Saliheen). The American Muslim also recommends work by the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Yusuf al-Qaradawi. It is no surprise that the website and its author, Sheila Musaji, have been highly critical of US anti-terror policy and any negative criticism of Islamism and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The literature assessed in mosques includes the following works. Click the book covers below to find out more.
Go to the web site Mapping Sharia  and see the individual books found and read the text reviews.
Also, read the full article in The Middle East Quarterly containing the complete survey. This is a must read article if you want to understand the truth behind Islamic terrorism in the United States.
