The Battle for Aleppo Looms

While the entire world is breathlessly watching the 2012 London Olympic games, the stage is being set for perhaps one of the bloodiest battles in Syria's ongoing civil war in the country's largest city of Aleppo.

Journalists on the ground have reported rebels are stockpiling medical supplies and weapons, while Syria's loyalist forces are staging soldiers, tanks and helicopters for an all-out assault on the mostly rebel occupied city, and civilians are fleeing by the thousands to escape the imminent Battle for Aleppo. 

Skirmishes have broken out across the city already
The imminent battle is vital for both sides, as rebel forces can further isolate Assad's regime by claiming the largest city against his professional army, and on the flip side Assad can prove the rebels are unable to hold major cities if his forces drive them out. The consequences will be pivotal regardless of the outcome, due to the unique nature of this conflict. 

And with the western world apparently paralyzed in fear of setting off a larger conflict with Assad's Russian and Iranian allies, or unsure of how to deal with his now acknowledged chemical weapons stockpile, rebels have only one shot of overthrowing Assad's regime: momentum. By keeping the conflict moving; by keeping pressure on his army's weakening supplies; by gaining new defectors every day the rebel forces can gain the upper hand on their own, because they sure as hell aren't getting any help from the rest of the world. 

Let us hope the western world's fear of the imminent battle turning into a full scale massacre is not only dead wrong, but that we witness the greatest defeat of Assad's butchers in Aleppo and hopefully soon, the defeat of his inhumane and illegitimate regime.

Finding the Right Airport in NYC

If you are from New York City or have ever traveled there, you know how important getting in and around is. I was born in NYC, and my family travels there every year. If you know what you are looking for and how to get there, you can significantly improve your trip experience while getting in the sights and sounds.

You can eat at many of the finest restaurants in the country-- for me I like sitting down in a Queens pizzeria and having the best pizza in the country. If you are traveling in or out of an airport you can try otels JFK airport -- one of the largest in the country. The only international trip I have ever taken was out of JFK. It is just minutes from JFK and there are taxi and train services that can lead you right there. It can be great for casual travel, or for business or family. With the airport covering most of the world, you can find all sorts of different air carriers and compare prices before you buy. Take it from someone from Queens, research before you fly and if JFK's the choice for you, go for it.

No Joke

Fido, Casper the Friendly Ghost and Juan Valdez walk into a polling place.  No this isn’t the beginning of a joke it is a key part of the Chicago Plan to re-elect the worst President in American History.

The Voter Participation Center (VPC), a left wing organization whose work to register Democrat voters exemplifies the process used for generations in Chicago to ensure the Outfit/Machine maintains control of the government, the power, and the swag.  The VPC is mass mailing pre-printed voter registration forms to selected voter blocks known to be part of the Democrat coalition, African-Americans, Latinos, young adults, and single women. In their effort to extend the Chicago system to the rest of the country VPC mailed nearly 200,000 third-party voter registration forms to Virginia residents in June.  This has resulted in more than 15,000 new voters being registered.

However, there are a few problems with this exercise in Chicago-style democracy.  They are violating rules set forth in the state code and the Virginia Constitution requiring that voters fill out their own form.  The State Board of Elections, which the group says pre-approved their forms and their methods, has asked the group to stop filling in the forms prior to sending them to the people, and pointing to the errant forms they have also raised questions concerning how the group obtained lists of registered voters.  In addition, according to Justin Riemer, the Virginia State Board of Elections' deputy secretary, forms have been sent by the group to “deceased infants, out-of-state family members, and non-U.S. citizens, among others.”  Given the fact that these forms can be mailed in and that the Federal Government will sue any State that has the chutzpah to require a photo ID to vote don’t be surprised if in this, the most crucial election of our lives Fido, Casper, or Juan cast their vote to continue the occupation of Washington by the Progressive Statists and their totalitarian plans.

The list of problems with Democrat voting procedures that have ensured their iron-fisted rule in the tottering hulks of our once great cities is as long as it is disturbing.  There are the great Democrat machines that have used every form of voter fraud and intimidation to dominate the urban political scene in America for generations in places such as Philadelphia, Detroit, and of course the Mecca of corruption President Obama’s adopted hometown and political base, Chicago.  In East St. Louis and Indianapolis there are actually more registered voters than eligible citizens. 

As the Obama Justice Department circles the country like a bird of prey waiting to pounce on any jurisdiction that attempts to purge the dead the illegal immigrants or felons from the voting lists, it is apparent that voter fraud has been elevated from a crime to a national policy.  So far Attorney General Holder has sued Florida, Georgia, and Texas while investigating Pennsylvania.  Yet there is no time or resources spent on investigating sixteen counties in Texas with more voters on the rolls than in the census or sixteen jurisdictions in Illinois that also have more registered than eligible. There also was no interest in prosecuting the clear case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party who patrolled voting locations armed with clubs while making racist statements to voters.  And the most reprehensible case of voter suppression of all is the campaign waged to limit the vote of our active duty military.

Any attempt to slow the growth of phantom voters is met vigorously by the Federal Government with strident accusations of racism saying that anyone who requires a photo ID to vote might as well burn a cross on the White House lawn.  This is patently absurd.  It takes a photo ID to do many things people do every day.  You need a photo ID to:

Get a Driver's license
Buy alcohol
Buy cigarettes
Apply for welfare
Apply for food stamps
Cash a check
Purchase a firearm
Make any large credit card purchase
Open a bank account
Rent an apartment
Be admitted to a hospital
Get a marriage license

And yet according to Attorney General Holder any jurisdiction that requires a photo ID to vote is placing an undue burden on minorities akin to a poll tax collected by a man in a white hood.  But for security purposes you needed a photo ID to get into the NAACP meeting recently to hear Mr. Holder speak in a state he is currently suing over their requirement of a photo ID to vote. The irony never ends in a world that is fast becoming the theater of the absurd.

Add into the mix that most states offer free IDs and provisional ballots that are counted once ID is verified to anyone who shows up without an ID, and it’s easy to see the righteous battle against voter ID is really a reprehensible defense of voter fraud.

And just in case the actual living citizens of America show up to vote in great enough numbers to compete with Fido, Casper the Ghost, and Juan the Obama administration has retained the services of thousands of lawyers.  These devil’s advocates will challenge the vote in any district that goes against them or to defend themselves in any jurisdiction with the gall to challenge their manufactured majority.

Passing over the debates of who is Barack Obama, where did he come from, and what motivates him we must deal now with the Fete Accompli.  He has been legally sworn in and has run the country into the ground for almost four years.  We cannot afford four more years of the Progressive’s spend us into oblivion with the Cloward–Piven Strategy as national policy.  We cannot afford another four years of international support for the Muslim Brotherhood’s march to power in Middle East and serial apology tours.  We cannot afford another four years of trillion dollar yearly deficits.  We cannot afford another four years of Barack Obama if America is to have any chance to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave.

If we don’t end this soon the Progressives will end it later. 

If we don’t reassert our devotion to constitutionally limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom we will sink into a quagmire of endless entitlements for the idlers paid for by plundering the productive.  In four short months we will have an opportunity to choose.  The opponents of liberty are lined up to steal the election, but we can overwhelm them if we will all show up and vote.  Make sure every Patriot is registered, and do anything and everything you can to make sure everyone you know votes, because you can bet Fido, Casper the Friendly Ghost and Juan Valdez will. And that’s no joke.

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.
