Parting Thoughts — New Year’s Eve

December 31, 2008

by LukeAmerica2020

At the end of this eventful year, I’d like to thank you for visiting this blog the last couple of months. It has been a delight to have researched and written these conservative-leaning posts. But, the endeavors have usurped a large amount of my time from other duties and responsibilities.

Moreover, unpublished research is leading me to anticipate a series of events for the upcoming year which consume me with dread at the thought of ongoing research. Below, you’ll find my predictions for 2009. You may want to save this article as a time-stamped MHT or PDF for comparison one year from now. You could also save it as a browser bookmark.

Iraqi Journalist Throws Shoes At Bush

December 14, 2008

by LukeAmerica2020
President George W. Bush unexpectedly flew to Iraq Sunday (2008-12-14), his fourth visit, to pay a farewell visit and discuss a recently signed security agreement. Hours later, during a news conference in Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s office in Baghdad, a reporter of Baghdadiya television threw two shoes, one by one, at Bush (video below).

The man who threw the shoes shouted an Arabic phrase, which reportedly translated as, “This is a farewell kiss, dog.” In the Arab world, one of the strongest insults is sticking the sole of your dirty shoe in somebody’s face.

Bailout Recipients Bankrolled Conventions

December 11, 2008

by LukeAmerica2020
According to two private, nonpartisan organizations, some of the major corporations that received enormous sums in bailout funds and loans had just donated large amounts of money to the Democratic and Republican conventions weeks before coming to Washington to beg for their taxpayer-funded handouts.

These include American International Group (AIG), Citigroup, Ford Motor Company, Freddie Mac, General Motors Corporation, and Goldman Sachs. In all, big businesses, labor unions, and individual millionaires donated $118 million into the nominating conventions for Barack Obama and John McCain. The Democratic convention in Denver received $61 million and the Republican one in Minneapolis-St. Paul got $57 million.

YouTube Actions Incite Boycott

December 10, 2008

by LukeAmerica2020
A Brief Overview of YouTube …
The domain name “YouTube.com” was activated on February 15, 2005; the company was founded by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. The angel-funded enterprise offered their first public preview of the site in May 2005. They made their official debut that November. Bandwidth costs and potential advertising profits inspired a venture capitalist, Sequoia Capital, to get involved.

Within six months, YouTube was one of the fastest growing sites on the Web and was ranked the 5th most popular website on Alexa. More than 100 million video clips were viewed daily on YouTube, with an additional 65,000 new videos uploaded every 24 hours.

“Day Without a Gay” and “Prop 8 – The Musical”

December 10, 2008

by LukeAmerica2020
Some same-sex marriage supporters are urging people to “call in gay” today (2008-12-10) to show how much the country relies on gays and lesbians. Organizers of “Day Without a Gay” are also encouraging people to perform volunteer work and refrain from spending money. Designed to show the size and impact of the gay and lesbian community, the grass-roots effort comes just weeks after California’s Proposition 8 initiative.

The ballot proposition defended the definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman and consequently eliminated the possibility of same-sex couples marrying in the state. The voters in favor of ending same-sex marriage won with 52.3%.

But many in California’s homosexual community did not accept the loss. The more militant losers marched in the streets, accosted by-standers, criticized christians and blacks (who predominantly voted in favor of the proposition), ransacked churches, and launched intensive media campaigns claiming those who opposed them were involved in a conspiracy of hate-speech. Now, they’ve developed a more creative means to sway public opinion and the next election.

Egyptian Cleric Demands Obama Convert to Islam

December 9, 2008

by LukeAmerica2020
On Al-Nas TV (Egypt) on November 27, Cleric Hassan Abu Al-Ashbal demanded that Barack Hussein Obama convert to Islam (video below). He declared that Obama is “like the Byzantine leaders in the days of Prophet Muhammad.” He continued, “If you want glory; you will find it in Islam. If you want honor; you will find it in Islam … especially since you have some kind of roots in Islam.”

He concluded with this blatant threat to the President-elect,

“If you refuse to return to your Islamic origins, to the way Allah created you, to withdraw your huge armies and military bases from the lands of the Muslims … it constitutes an evil omen for you.

Know, Obama, that America, with all its size and might, will know no peace, as long as a single Muslim child lacks food, drink, medicine, or housing. If you refuse, Obama, and insist on remaining in Muslim lands, know that Allah still plants in Muslims obedience to Him and they are willing to wait for Paradise which is closer than their own shoelaces.

Know, Obama, that in the lands of Islam, there are people who seek death, and are eager for it, even more than you and your people are eager for life.”

Obama Citizenship: Supreme Court Updates

December 8, 2008

by LukeAmerica2020
Of the more than one dozen court cases challenging Barack Obama’s citizenship and eligibility to become President, three cases are at the forefront of the grassroots movement by concerned Americans. This is not a partisan or a racial issue; it is about the constitutional qualifications to be eligible for the Presidency. Moreover, three aspects of this ongoing ordeal are most astonishing.

First is that most of the lower court cases have been dismissed due to the plaintiff’s lack of standing, ie, ordinary citizens have no right to question a Presidential candidate’s eligibility. Second is that Obama and the DNC have spent almost one million dollars in legal fees to prevent the candidate from having to reveal his original birth certificate. Third is the fact that Obama likewise refuses to release numerous relevant documents and records that should be innocuous (Occidental College records, Columbia College records, Columbia Thesis paper, Harvard College records, Law Practice client list, Law Practice billing records, etc.)
