A Free Society And The Muslim Conundrum

Posted by streiff (Profile)  -  Monday, August 30th at 12:01PM EDT

Accept us… and our ways or we will kill you!

The recent debate over the Ground Zero Mosque, now innocuously called “Park51″ by the AP and other nitwits, has been instructive on several levels.

We’ve learned a great deal about the liberal mindset that thinks a Christmas creche on a courthouse lawn, or a cross on a desolate Mojave hilltop, is a grave affront to the “separation of church and state” yet the building of a mosque/Islamic community center/target beacon on land made available for development by the 9/11 terror attacks is a testimony to our tolerance.

We’ve also learned a great deal more about America’s Islamic community and what that seems to mean for America in the future.

Case in point: last week’s Washington Post and a story headlined “Hostility across U.S. jars Muslim college students.

Although the Muslim students hadn’t eaten since dawn, something besides food was on their minds as they loaded plates with tandoori chicken, chickpeas and rice at American University to break their Ramadan fast.

For weeks, their faith had been under attack by some opponents of a proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero. Every time they turned on the TV, there were new reports of anti-Muslim sentiment: mosque construction being opposed hundreds of miles from Ground Zero; a Florida pastor vowing to burn copies of the Koran to mark the anniversary of Sept. 11; a poll showing that 43 percent of Americans hold unfavorable views of Muslims. And just this week, a Muslim cabbie was stabbed in New York.

All of it points to a swelling hostility that many of these students had scarcely known was there and that religious and political leaders worry could fuel alienation and radicalism among some young American Muslims.

The story details the whining of a bunch of rich, privileged Muslim kids at American University about how bad things are for them in the United States. They’re attending a private university, a university that offers a special cafeteria offering for their religious observance and they don’t see the irony of bitching about “swelling hostility.”

But for the sake of argument, let’s color the principled opposition to the GZM in the worst possible light and stipulate for a couple of paragraphs that the opposition is rooted in religious bigotry.

So what?

The argument that this bigotry is somehow unusual is nothing more or less than a simple butchering of American history. This country has a long heritage of being less than welcoming to religious minorities. Bay Colony Puritans hanged Quakers. Dissenters were banished from Anglican colonies. Catholics were subjected to virtual pogroms in New York, Philadelphia and Boston in the 1840s and 1850s and the shameful legacy of anti-Catholicism is still evident in 37 states by way of the Blaine Amendments. Mormons. Jehovah Witnesses. Etc. So to say that being the object of religious hostility and bigotry makes Muslims somehow unique is ridiculous.

But this isn’t about bigotry. This argument is really about monumental arrogance and a lack of sense of proportion that ultimately calls into question the degree to which any but the most secular Muslims will ever be the part of the mainstream of American political culture.

The attacks perpetrated on the United States were the culmination of a long series of attacks upon Americans and American interests by a Muslim enemy dating back to the late 1960s. Though Israel is often trotted out as the reason for these attacks that is little more than a smoke screen.

The attempt by the adherents of the GZM, both Muslim and quislings, try to use a wave of the hand to make this history go away but the reason that the opposition is so deep is because we all remember the bombings and hijackings that preceded 9/11. So the inability of those pushing the GZM to admit that reasonable people could object to the GZM in light of our recent history with Islam and Islamists, or to even attempt to understand the objections, speaks much more about the attitude and motivation of the adherents than it does about the opposition.

The GZM is opposed by something approaching three-quarters of all Americans.  We don’t know the underlying reason for that opposition but many surely see it as a calculated insult. As a tawdry in-your-face gesture designed to use our open society as a means of allowing the GZM backers and Islamists to laugh in their sleeve at what they have accomplished. I say this is a calculated insult rather than a effort a “bridge building”, because any true effort at bridge building would have had some symbolic dimension like, for instance, an offer to rebuild St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church which was destroyed on 9/11 at Ground Zero as part of the redevelopment of the area.

This kind of behavior would have been an unremarkable though churlish behavior act were it not for the subtext being broadcast by the GZM supporters and the Muslim community. From the Washington Post article:

“My brother came home one night really upset,” said Asma Mian, a 20-year-old junior from Potomac. He’d encountered a man on the Metro who was railing against the proposed community center and mosque in Lower Manhattan.

It rattled her to see her 17-year-old brother so emotional. “He barely gets involved in politics. He’s not extremely religious or anything,” she said, adding that people his age can be quick to take offense. They “feel like it’s more a personal attack. It’s more mortifying than it would be if you were older.”

That anger, youth leaders and terrorism experts warn, could push some young Muslims into the arms of such extremists as U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Aulaqi, who has been linked to several terrorist plots. In his recruiting efforts, Aulaqi often portrays Islam as being under attack by the West.

The most vociferous mosque opponents “do not know what they are doing,” said Yahya Hendi, the Muslim chaplain at Georgetown University. “They are radicalizing people.”

We need to pause for a second to understand this fully.

We have a young Muslim, whose family is established enough to live in Potomac, MD (median family income, $177,000) and front the AU tuition and expenses for at least one of his siblings, who is upset that someone voiced opposition to the GZM. He wasn’t beaten or threatened or in any way insulted. He either heard or was involved in a conversation in which one party was against the GZM. While we can write his outrage off to the Walter-Mittyism of a 17 year old, we are less able to rationalize the statements by people who should know better. When we are told that if the mosque is not built there will be more Islamic radicals and when the Muslim chaplain at Georgetown and other “leaders” warn that Americans exercising their rights as citizens could “radicalize” people this is not a cry for acceptance, this is narcissism on steroids.

Above I mentioned the difficulties many religious minorities have had in the United States. The one thing these minorities never did was resort to violence because they weren’t welcomed everywhere. Sometimes they set up parallel institutions. Without sacrificing their religious doctrines they strove for accommodation with their neighbors. More often than not by their daily actions and behavior they gave the lie to any accusation that they weren’t loyal Americans. They also realized that our politics is analogized to a bare-knuckle fight for a reason and they actively engaged in that arena.

One hesitates with generalities because rarely are they all encompassing, but with Muslims in America we are seeing a much different behavior. The attitude we are seeing is one that demands acceptance rather than acknowledging that acceptance is earned in a free society. Indeed the demand goes beyond mere acceptance to an implied threat of violence if that acceptance is not granted.

Were that attitude limited to coddled 17-year-olds on the Metro then we could laugh it off. But the fact that influential people within that community see the threat — or want us to see the threat — as real speaks to a culture that is incapable of taking criticism. It also belies a culture that on the one hand assures us that most Muslims are not like those who carried out the 9/11 attacks (or those that funded them, or those who trained them, or those who gave them travel documents, or those who just thought America getting its comeuppance was grand) but in the next breath tells us that unless we cease criticism they will, indeed, become just like them. An assertion which, if it is to be believed, certainly calls the initial statement into question.

The question, therefore, concerning the GZM has nothing to do with religious bigotry. The question is what role can any group ever play in our free and often rancorous society if, by its own admission, it will resort to violence to avenge even perceived insult?

Media and the Beck Rally

Yesterday’s huge rally posted a slight conundrum for TV news: how to cover an event on the National Mall headlined by Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, Fox News’ and two right-wing megastars?

The outcome was fair and balanced said - more or less. CNN rarely identified its rival network’s ties to the “Restoring Honor” rally, sometimes identifying Beck simply as a “conservative commenter.” It also cut short its coverage of Palin’s speech. ((snip)) Only staid C-SPAN really took a side. The private, nonprofit broadcaster aired the Glenn Beck rally live all morning, only broadcasting the National Action Network rally later in the...

In the wake of Glenn Beck's hugely successful Restoring Honor rally held in Washington, D.C. this weekend, the Huffington Post has published an offer of $100,000 to anyone with evidence that would destroy Beck's reputation and take him off the political/cultural battlefield.

An essay written by Beau Friedlander, the last editor-in-chief of Air America before it shut down this year, was posted in the Politics section of the Huffington Post today with the title, $100,000 For Glenn Beck's Sex Tape.

Friedlander says he will not use his own money for the hit, but that he will "broker" the deal.

It is time to pop the tea baggers' favorite balloon (so what if it will be replaced by another?), and with that in mind I hereby offer to negotiate a $100,000 payday to the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone records or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever. I am not offering the cash myself, but I will broker the deal and/or raise the money for what you bring to the table. (And it better be good.)

If you have the goods, or if you want to contribute to a slush fund to buy more takedowns (probably not tax deductible), please contact me at:

Friedlander couches his offer in the context of Andrew Breitbart's offer of $100,000 for the Journolist listserve messages, but this is more in line with pornographer Larry Flynt's blackmail campaign against Congressmen during Bill Clinton's impeachment, which followed a threat from Clinton conveyed by George Stephanopoulos to expose their sex lives.

Likewise, the Huffington Post has ties to the Obama White House, raising the question of whether the White House is behind this targeting of Beck.

Washington Examiner:  Metro ridership spiked on day of Glenn Beck rally …by 510,000 

Metrorail traffic on Saturday – the day Fox News commentator Glenn Beck hosted a rally at the Lincoln Memorial – was at its highest level since the Fourth of July weekend.

More than half-a-million people rode Metro trains Saturday, far outpacing weekend ridership since Independence Day, according to Metro traffic reports.

Roughly 510,000 people rode Metro trains last Saturday, or about 180,000 more than had on any other weekend day in August.

“Traffic was higher than [on] normal Saturdays,” said Metro spokesman Reggie Woodruff.

Beck’s rally, during which he was joined by Sarah Palin and other speakers, was estimated to have drawn hundreds of thousands to the National Mall.

God sent the event a flyover…

The Beck-Palin Show Is No Joke (They're scared spitless, with good reason)

Posted on Mon Aug 30 2010 19:13:28 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time) by 2ndDivisionVet

It’s easy to laugh off the weekend’s Glenn Beck-Sarah Palin show at the Lincoln Memorial. Palin was her usual squeaky self. Beck was bombastic and self-important, explaining how God had assisted him in this enterprise, just as the almighty helped Moses lead the Jews out of Egypt.

But don’t laugh just yet. The rally was a major event in the right wing’s effort to take over Congress and the presidency.

It marked the end of a big conservative weekend in Washington. The other event was the two-day “Defending the American Dream Summit” of the Americans for Prosperity, an organization founded by the energy conglomerate billionaire brothers, Charles and David Koch. As reported in Jane Mayer’s New Yorker profile, they have put many millions into ultraconservative organizations whose goal is to drive President Barack Obama and the other Democrats from office.

Saturday, participants in the American Dream Summit went to Beck and Palin’s Lincoln Memorial rally, making it a conservative mixer on a sunny Washington afternoon. Estimates of the crowd vary, but watching it on C-SPAN, I could see it was big, and also that most of its members represented the main demographics of the Republican conservative base—white and older.

With the Kochs’ billions in the background and Palin and Fox News star Beck up front, it added up to trouble for the Democrats and the country.

Although most of the accounts of the Beck-Palin show concentrated on its heavy dose of religiosity, the most important element was its undertone of politics. Shadowy powers such as the Koch brothers need a public face, someone to articulate their views in a way that resonates with the voters. Barry Goldwater, the 1964 Republican presidential nominee, was such a person for the right, although he couldn’t extend his appeal beyond the conservative Republican base. Ronald Reagan was a perfect public face, able to cross over to independents and Democrats. Consider last weekend an audition for someone to play the Reagan role.

Beck, the producer and director, made himself the star. He sought to portray himself as being above politics. He did this by appropriating both God and Martin Luther King Jr. His rally coincided with the anniversary of Dr. King’s great speech—“I have a dream”—at the Lincoln Memorial. Beck tried to move beyond his far-right moorings by invoking King’s name frequently, a ploy negated by his 2009 characterization on “Fox and Friends” of Obama as “a racist … a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people, the white culture, I don’t know what it is.” Sunday, after his rally, he backed away from that statement, saying on Fox, “It shouldn’t have been said; it was poorly said; I have a big fat mouth sometimes, and I say things. ...”

But Beck’s softening of his position won’t move him into the mainstream. Nor will his ploy of claiming a special relationship with someone who has strong nonpartisan credentials: God.

Beck compared his relationship with the deity to that of Moses, who was told by the Lord that he was being sent to Egypt on a divine mission to take the Jews to freedom.

Beck’s moments with God came on two occasions, he told the crowd. One was when one of his staff asked what would happen if nobody showed up at the rally. Beck said, “My response was we’ll stand where the Lord wants us to stand, and he’ll provide the people if it’s what is supposed to happen.” His second moment was when he ran short of money to pay for mounting costs of the rally. “For the first time I challenged him a little bit,” Beck said. “I was on a plane with my wife and I looked up at the top of that airplane and I said ‘Lord, we don’t have anything else left. It’s up to you now.” Beck said more than enough money suddenly flowed in.

Whereas Beck wrapped himself in God, Palin portrayed herself conventionally as a soldier’s mom, with only one dip into politics. “We must not fundamentally transform America as some would want; we must restore America and restore her honor,” she said.

Beck was too erratic, too bombastic, too full of himself to fill the role of fronting for the Republican right. On the other hand, Palin showed much more potential. Her delivery, still too high-pitched and flighty, is nowhere near Reagan’s. But she has improved, particularly in a situation like the Beck-Palin rally, where facts and details would have been out of place.

Moreover, she is in sync with what Jane Mayer, in her New Yorker article, described as the Koch brothers’ agenda—“drastically lower personal and corporate taxes, minimal social services for the needy and much less oversight of industry—especially environmental regulation.”

Their money and that of other secretive Republican financiers is now flowing into Senate and House races. From there, the GOP funders will move to the presidential election. Sarah Palin could be their front person, with them pulling the strings while she reigns as America’s first woman president. So please don’t laugh. It could happen

Bill O’Reilly spent the bulk of his hour covering Beck’s 8.28 Restore Honor Event.  He did a great job, as did Chris Wallace in his interview with Beck right after the event. Geraldo, on the other hand did a horrible job covering the Beck Event as he tried to boost and support Al Sharpton in his sad attempt to down-grade the Beck Rally at which MLK’s niece Alveda King spoke, instead of the Sharpton rally that by all reports drew an attendance of approximately 3,000 people… which the Reverend Sharpton lied about.

Department of Justice Lists Constitutionalists in Extremism Guide


8.30.10 - Public Intelligence | A Department of Justice guide for investigators of criminal and extremist groups lists “constitutionalists” alongside organizations like al-Qaeda and the Aryan Brotherhood.

A recent Department of Justice guide for investigators of criminal and extremist groups lists “constitutionalists” and “survivalists” alongside organizations like Al-Qaeda and the Aryan Brotherhood.  The 120-page, “Law Enforcement Sensitive” guide to “Investigating Terrorism and Criminal Extremism – Terms and Concepts” describes itself as “a glossary designed primarily as a tool for criminal justice professionals to enhance their understanding of words relating to extremist terminology, phrases, activities, symbols, organizations, and selected names that they may encounter while conducting criminal investigations or prosecutions of members of extremist organizations.”

Constitutionalist, defined by Random House’s 2010 Dictionary as an “adherent or advocate of constitutionalism or of an existing constitution”, is described in the report as a “generic term for members of the ‘patriot’ movement”.  Survivalists are described in the document as fearing a “coming collapse of civilization” and are trying to prepare themselves for this collapse.  Such individuals are said to have “typically stockpiled food, water, and weapons, especially the latter, and instructed themselves on topics ranging from first aid to childbirth to edible plants”.

The guide defines the term “New World Order” as being “used by conspiracy theorists to refer to a global conspiracy designed to implement worldwide socialism”.  The Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, and Council on Foreign Relations are described as organizations “targeted by right-wing extremists for conspiring to dominate the world”.  The guide also defines “One World Government” as the “concept that there will ultimately be a single governing body that will control the world”, adding that “some right-wing extremists fear this occurring, believing that white people will be in the minority, with Jewish people ultimately controlling the world”.

While the document’s introduction does state that “the fact that an entry appears in this publication does not imply a connection to illegal activity”, it goes on to say that the guide consists of “terms that may be germane to members of an extremist movement” or are “singularly employed by specific extremist groups”.  The obvious result of the inclusion of terms such as “Bilderberg Group” and “Trilateral Commission” in a report titled “Investigating Terrorism and Criminal Extremism” is that law enforcement officials unaware of these groups will tend to associate legitimate discussion as “extremist” speech.  This diminishes the credibility of any person attempting to rationally discuss such groups and fosters a perception that any discussion of such groups could be associated with a supposedly “extremist” ideology.

Facebook's Persecution of Conservatives: Examining Evidence of Bias

Facebook's Persecution of Conservatives: Examining Evidence of Bias

Written by: Barry Secrest  -  Published on August 29th, 2010 @ 02:08:28 pm

Obama and Facebook Are Watching You

Conservative Refocus

On August 24th, we published a news article which dealt with a phenomenon, which we have heard talked about more and more of late, occurring on the social networking site Facebook.  In the article, we explained how Conservative Journalist Jane Jamison's entire network of friends and contacts, built up over a number of years, was expunged from Facebook for no clear reason.

When Jane requested a reason, she was pretty much given the cold shoulder by Facebook.  Knowing that the Digital World can often be a haphazard thing at best, a number of individuals might say as a result, "well, that happens all the time--no big deal--grow up."  However, the mystery deepens when another Conservative activist with a respectable web presence was also deleted without so much as a warning or " buh-bye."  This,  just a scant few weeks before, and even worse,  that Conservative was me.

Facebook Deletes Conservative Accounts

Having a legion of friends and contacts built up over years,  unceremoniously swept out of your life leaves you wondering:  How am I going to piece all of these friends and affiliations back together again?  What am I going to do to fix this?  The answer; not much can be done.

Between Jane Jamison and my network of contacts, the both of us have lost over 8,000 friends and contacts which had been built up over a number of years.  No small thing, as one can see.  My "unfortunate occurrence" just so happens to have occurred right at the time of publishing my first book, A Perfect Liberal Storm, which is admittedly "heavily dismissive" of those currently in power in Washington and specifically documents why.  Jane's "bad stroke of luck" occurred right after she had published an article which was stringently critical of a local and very well-known California Democrat, Jerry Brown, for a number of documented reasons.

Is all of this a coincidence? Maybe.

Maybe not.

As a good friend has always maintained, "there are no coincidences," which should lead many to stop and think.

The Facebook News Article and the Telltale Comments by Readers

When the news article titled "Facebook shutting down Conservatives? Identities being deleted without notice" was released--this website--which was re-released on a high-volume server back in June due to traffic increases, actually groaned just a bit for the first time--such was the volume of traffic.  The article was picked up by Conservatives all over Facebook and the web and continues to spark conversations about biased censorship due to political affiliation.

The comments that have been published with the article mentioned above detail many instances of right-wingers' profiles being unceremoniously dumped without warning.  However there is much, much more.

There are many comments that both Jane and I have received that were sent to us via our "new Facebook identities" as a result of the article.  One young and very upset lady, whose name is Marix, wrote me a heartfelt letter in which she desperately needed her extensive Facebook contact list back so that she could carry on with her work  raising awareness of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.  Here is alink to her site, for those who might have lost contact with her.  I could only commiserate with her angst.  Facebook leaves few, if any, options for most to actually communicate with them in any meaningful manner.  Marix appears to be an ardent defender of her faith in Christianity, while not seeming to offend others through her discussion of her beliefs.

In other instances, we have heard of the dirty tricks that our ideological opposites play on unsuspecting Conservatives.  In one scenario a gaggle of Facebook Liberals acted in concert in order to have Conservatives removed who often espoused an effective viewpoint by "reporting them" to the Facebook administration, which will often result in the Facebook powers-that-be wiping that individual's profile from the planet, due process be damned.  In other scenarios we have learned that it's not just Conservatives, but rather there are also a number of Christians who have had their comments and even profiles deleted for putting forth their religious points of view in an effective manner.  When we checked into those particular assertions, we found, among them,  a Muslim Facebook site--which a member kindly sent to us--where the founders crowed "they are skared of us"...seeming to mock Americans.  Jane also received a number of messages from "certain politicians" who have also had their profiles deleted.

We saw other reports of Facebook freezing profiles for a length time, ostensibly as a result of the posting of Conservative links and stories--almost as punishment much like the temporary sting of a "ruler thrashing" across the palm of the hand--which some of us suffered as children.

We even saw a number of suggestions that a "Conservative Networking" site be established so that people could post, speak and otherwise interact freely without fear of being expunged.

In other accounts we heard of individuals being messaged that they must provide a cell phone number or Driver's License in order to confirm one's identity in order to post further.

We read a number of accounts where, upon being deleted, the offenders were messaged by Facebook as much as six weeks later, which warned that threatening or abusive actions would not be tolerated and deletion would occur.  Oh, gee... thanks for the warning.

One particularly memorable message wryly noted to Jane that it was ironic that Facebook required a birth certificate from a member in order to even consider re-instating their account when no such requirement was made for Obama to become President of the United States (no less.)  Good Point!

Another message was from a member who had created a page which was titled "No to Ground Zero Mosque"  and reported having 107,000 members.  That page was apparently deleted by Facebook.  When the member tried to recreate the page, she was  rewarded with a message from Facebook stating, "New Pages titled No Ground Zero Mosque" will no longer be allowed.  Free speech we can believe in, no doubt.  We do note, in this case, the recent report of an AP released directive to reporters ( most likely originating from the White House) which indicated that "Ground Zero" would be removed from any further news article references to the proposed Mosque.  Hmm...

Of Jews and Trolls and Liberal Goals

And yet other Facebook sites, which disparage Israel and say nasty things about those of the Jewish faith, are slow, if ever to be deleted by Facebook according to accounts from a number of members.  Still other comments focused on what are known as Facebook trolls who are sub-individuals whom pass themselves off as being Conservative in order to create havoc in various ways as members of a group later on.  To These we could only recommend "getting a life" --who in the world has the time or worse, the inclination for such time-burning nonsense?

The comments which we received ran the gamut from calling for a class-action lawsuit to trying divergence-type tricks in order to get a particular message across.

So the next logical question becomes:  "Are Liberals treated in the same way?"

The answer from everything we could find was a resounding "NO."

When researching this possibility, in order to discern if it was happening to ideologues from either camp, we could find no clear indication that the same sort of "purging" is being done to Liberals or Democrats.  In fact, if you conduct a Google search on Liberals being deleted from Facebook, you will mostly come up with either pieces pointing to our earlier article or instances of various posts being deleted, but nothing identifying a vast Right-Wing conspiracy against the Left such as what we Conservatives might be experiencing from the Leftward.

The next logical question then becomes, why?  Noting that most of the members of Facebook would, no doubt, mimic the overall political leanings of the Nation as a whole, it would seem that Facebook is made up of a preponderance of center-right political affiliations--just as is the Nation--especially now.  So, hypothetically, why would Facebook risk angering better than half of their members when they could be jeopardizing their standing based on political ideology?  The answer might be easier to surmise than one might think.

When we dig into the subject a bit further, we find that the Facebook Chief Operatives seem to have an ideological leaning which supports Obama and the Liberals and Democrats.  In fact, Chris Kelly, the former Chief Privacy Officer of Facebook, is a well-known California Democratic political operative.  In a report from, a particular article by Michael Beckel states that Kelly has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic Party causes or campaigns over the last several years.

The article further states that Kelly has donated at least $21,000 to Democratic causes since January 2009.  Opensecrets goes on to detail a number of donations to various individuals, but then further states that Kelly donated to both Clinton and then later Obama in the 2008 Presidential campaign.   While we have also learned from the article that Facebook has been in extensive contact with members of both the Congress and the Senate, we find that Facebook  lobbying with regard to privacy issues has approached nearly a third of a million dollars, if not more, over the past two years.

The Facebook - Obama Connection

We have also learned that during Obama's campaign, Facebook was specifically utilized as a means to further the President's message via social networking.  In fact, Obama was the first Presidential Candidate to utilize Facebook "extensively" as a campaign medium, which attracted an estimated six million younger voters.  The Obama Campaign actually brought onboard Chris Hughs, one of the three original Facebook founders, who was enamored of Obama in being a Candidate who could take advantage of Facebook's social networking while, apparently, feeding Hughs' ideological persuasion.  Hughs then started a highly successful website called, which is an online community dedicated to furthering Obama's ideology in all things.

Hughs, a native of North Carolina, decided early in life that Conservative Hickory, NC was not for him and decided to take a boarding at prestigious Andover prep School, unbeknownst to his parents.  According to a fascinating  story published on the website Fast Company, what Hughs learned while at Andover was that he was Gay and he wasn't religious.  From there, his life led him to Harvard and into the birthing of Facebook, along with Harvard dorm-mates Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz.

Hughs is credited in many circles with being the frontman responsible for Obama's election.  While Facebook was just moving into the throes of being a huge and money making hit for its founders, Hughs was actually pulled away from Facebook by the Obama campaign to the chagrin of Zuckerberg.  Hughs has, throughout, apparently maintained his contacts with Facebook and is still close friends with Zuckerberg.

Another interesting fact detailed by the website Social Beat, indicates that Facebook was the only consumer internet company to actually lobby Federal Intelligence Agencies in 2009--including the CIA.  This in comparison to Internet giants such as Google, Amazon and Apple--among others--who seemingly stayed away from such agencies.  Facebook was the only one--but better yet, why again?

According to Kim-Mai Cutler, most of Facebook's D.C.  "experiences" center around helping Legislators and otherwise utilize Facebook's social networking potential with regard to campaigns, etc.; however, a further note of interest would have to be Facebook's 2009 hiring of Tim Sparapaniof  the American Civil Liberties Union, which is a Liberal bastion of Left-Wing-think, despite Facebook's burgeoning use as a law enforcement tool which would seem to go against  Civil liberties issues--at least in the past.

The ultimate test for Facebook bias would have to be the overall ideological set of both its members and its employees who control the actions of Facebook members.  Since 2007, Facebook employees, as a whole, have donated over 97% of all of their political funding to the Democrats and Democratically-connected causes.  A veritable smoking gun if you will.

The Ties That Blind

The Chief Officer of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has a reported net worth of $4 Billion dollars as a result of his Facebook operations, while Facebook earnings have been estimated to approach over $ 800 Million in 2010.  Most of Facebook's income is derived from ads placed by members, as well as advertisements from various companies, including Microsoft--which outlaid over $50 Million to Facebook in 2009.  Microsoft also owns 1.6 % of Facebook to date, however, we expect that number to most likely increase in the future.  Facebook is currently owned by shareholders who trade in a private market only, and its employees own much of the shares of the company which was most recently estimated to have a value of $22 Billion in the private market.  There have been reports that detail an IPO of Facebook in late 2011 or 2012.

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg

When we look at all of these facts tied in together, we find  that a strong case could be made regarding Facebook's seeming soft-attack on Conservatives, Libertarians and Republicans--and even certain Christians as details continue to emerge.  The reports that we have informally received from various members do seem to indicate an ideological persecution of certain members who actively engage in supporting their various causes which are of a Conservative nature.

We can further confirm a number of deep-rooted ties to the Obama Administration and Facebook company officials,  noting that Zuckerberg indicates himself only as an Independent and an Atheist while being an outspoken opponent of privacy issues--which puts him squarely in the camp opposing Constitutional Conservative principles.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we could find essentially no ties whatsoever which would indicate any  Facebook affinity or connection whatsoever with those of the Right-Wing--beyond one tiny donation by one Facebook official to Republican Carly Fiorina of HP fame.

Ultimately, we must each be our own judge of what is happening between Facebook and the Conservatives who utilize the site, but the question we,  both at Conservative Refocus and initially put forth, has certainly been strengthened by the available information uncovered through our research.  The other ironic fact is simply that what we may be seeing in these ideological deletions could be the recognition by Facebook of the fact that Conservatives are using these same powerful social networking tools to meaningfully connect, organize and interact across the country in much the same way as the Obama Facebook members successfully used for the President to gain power and eventually win the Presidency.

Obama's Facebook being used by Conservatives in a Saul Alinsky-like turnabout?  This would be yet another observed case of "live by the sword, die by the sword" ideological retribution would it not?

A simple word of caution.  Please remember:  Every time you sign onto Facebook, your IP address is logged along with your exact location.  So imagine, if you will, what might be next for Conservatives and dissidents who oppose those in power while using a social network with designs that could be plotting against its own Users behind the scenes.

***Facebook and all social sites are scary places monitored by Big Brother, pedophiles, rapists, future employers and God only know who else.***

There are people who will not get hired now or in the future because of their posts and who put themselves and their children in great harm because of the information they post online as well as making friends out of hundreds of people they do not know or have no connection with!!

WARNING: My husband, who looks at this facebook maybe once a month and hardly posts anything received a call from facebook and then the bank.  It seems that someone from Brazil hacked in and stole his facebook log in.  They then trolled all the major banks for his name and found one old account that he had used the same password for as he used for facebook.  The bank called him a few hours later to ask if was in Brazil because someone had logged into his account from there. Luckily there were only a few dollars in the bank account.  WARNING

I have not yet read this book, but in the absence of any other reviews, I should point out that it is a classic frequently referred to in many other books on energy medicine. Burr was a professor at Yale who did experiments in the 1970s and was able to detect electrical fields around plants and animals, which he called the "l-field" or "life field." This book appears to be a summary of his findings and their implications, written for the lay person, followed by the technical results of his experiments for those who may wish to read his methodology for himself and possibly repeat it.

Digital Versions Allow Instructors to Rewrite the (Text)book  -  Is This a Big Deal? Absolutely!!

studentview_psych-2_h.jpgA dummy textbook page, with an instructor’s insert, shows what students will see in the upcoming DynamicBooks.

The worst thing that we can let happen is allow book stores to vanish, online stores to go all digital, old books to be destroyed, libraries to be closed and all our reading materials and history to be put online and in digital form, often editable by leftist professors.

The written word is forever, a printed book or handwritten journal or letters cannot be destroyed or altered with the stroke of a key on a computer keyboard by people with sinister agendas.

Our history has been re-written and then the newest version has been  taught to our children to change their beliefs, their morality, our history and both control and narrow their thinking.  Luckily there are still sources to be found of the truth in printed form… Each one of us must join the cause to save original sources.

Help save and restore the truth: Start some private libraries with discarded and donated books (great projects for 9/12 and tea party groups as well as individual patriots, volunteer at the local public library so they don’t have to close due to budget constraints; collect books at home; insist that your bookstore and their chain carry books from all perspectives (many chains owned by liberal progressives hide Beck or Palin books and a lot of others in the back or even off the floor… or don’t carry them at all); donate old and original sourced books to Beck and other Conservative Private collectors who will preserve the knowledge; try to buy hardcover books whenever possible and create a permanent family library;  scan in original source materials and whole books if you can and then burn them to discs, print out copies and store them offline as well as on your computer; purchase and give books as gifts so that there is a financial incentive to keep printing them;  start ‘reading time’ with your kids and grandkids; make yourself read at lead 30-minutes a day, even if you don’t think you like to read; insist that your children’s high school (all public schools) and colleges do not allow their teachers and professors to subscribe to programs where they can edit the outrageously expensive textbooks online to reflect their own agenda and perspective, which is happening daily all over our Country!
