Las Vegas Report


We’ve just returned from our annual Fantasy Football League Draft pilgrimage to Las Vegas.

We had to return a day early as Bill has Valley Fever. He’s improving but it’s slow going and he has good days and bad days.

Dogs get Valley Fever, too.

On Saturday night we went to the Peep Show at Planet Hollywood. (Originally, The Aladdin Hotel, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Elvis Presley married Priscilla at the Aladdin Wedding Chapel.)

Tkts were comped and our hostess took very good care of us. But I think I had more fun than my husband. Maybe the double courvoisier which I sipped the duration of the show had something to do with that.

Bill said the right audience for the Peep Show is the MTV generation. Maybe so.

If you’re going to shell out a lot of clams for a Vegas show, may I suggest a Cirque du Soleil show. They’re always top notch and there are several to choose from.

I don’t stay on the Strip, too crowded for me.

Loved this casino:

But the hotel is a bit pricey … I mean a bit pricey for Las Vegas.

After all they got a room at Trump for the draft for only $119.00!

Next time, I’ll stay here. I like to try new places.

You won’t find friendlier service anywhere, but the locals seemed in a bit of a dour mood.

1. morose, sour, moody. See glum.

Now why are Las Vegans so glum?! Oh yeah! They have the highest unemployment and foreclosure rates in the entire nation!

Which brings me to Harry “Searchlight” Reid. As in you’ll need a searchlight to find truthful words coming out of his big mouth.

Driving home to Phoenix we passed through Harry’s hometown, Searchlight, Nevada.

Which is one big speed trap. So slow down! And moon Harry which will make you feel a whole lot better about life in general.

Randy Moss mooning Harry Reid

Between Las Vegas and Searchlight there’s a strip of highway dedicated to “Veterans of the Global War on Terror.”

G.W.O.T.! What’s that?!

Bill speculated that sign is an “in your face” meant for Harry. Maybe so.

Between Searchlight and Laughlin, Nevada there’s a mountain which looks exactly like a human hand flipping someone the bird.

Bill dubbed it “F*ck You Mountain” and oddly enough, it was pointing in Harry’s general direction.

The drive between Kingman and Wickenburg, AZ is very scenic and remote.

All in all, an easy drive for us, especially since we live in the far NW of Peoria. We even have a (928) area code.

Until next time, that’s my Las Vegas report.

    Fully understood, and 100% fine.

    > I was hoping somebody had already contacted you about it.

    It’s an extremely important confirmation of more general information we’d learned from Dan Sherman (see my last) and from our scientist source (see my initial message) who said that a solar superstorm of some kind would be upon us sometime between 2009 and 2012.

    We’ve also heard many other more general rumors of major problems like this in the next few years (see our recent article, published just a few days ago). What your husband reports could not be more important. What we need now, if at all possible, is more detailed understanding about exactly what the threat is, based upon my earlier questions.

    > There is a lot at stake here, and he is terrified of being identified.

    You can trust us fully not to reveal to anyone any details that would lead to him.

    State Dept. confirms Obama dual citizen

    ‘Counter-misinformation’ website aims to debunk birth controversy

    Posted: August 24, 2010

    By Jerome R. Corsi

    The State Department is maintaining a “counter-misinformation” page on an blog that attempts to “debunk a conspiracy theory” that President Obama was not born in the United States, as if the topic were equivalent to believing space aliens visit Earth in flying saucers.

    However, in the attempt to debunk the Obama birth-certificate controversy, the State Department author confirmed Obama was a dual citizen of the U.K. and the U.S. from 1961 to 1963 and a dual citizen of Kenya and the U.S. from 1963 to 1982, because his father was a Kenyan citizen when Obama was born in 1961.

    In a number of court cases challenging Obama’s eligibility, dual citizenship has been raised as a factor that could compromise his “natural born” status under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution.

    The cases argue dual citizenship would make Obama ineligible even if documentary evidence were shown the public, such as the hospital-issued long-form birth certificate that indicates the place of his birth and the name of the attending physician.

    The entry “The Obama Birth Controversy” was written by Todd Leventhal, identified as the chief of the Counter-Misinformation Team for the U.S. Department of State.

    The office appears to have been established “to provide information about false and misleading stories in the Middle East,” as described in a biography of Leventhal published on the U.S. Public Diplomacy website.

    In a manner reminiscent of George Orwell’s novel “1984,” the “counter-misinformation” office appears set on communicating the accepted U.S. government-approved view on a wide range of controversies that are branded dismissively as “conspiracy theories,” including questions about President Obama’s eligibility to be president.

    In the “conspiracy theory” section, a discussion of Obama’s birth certificate is lumped together with flying saucers, theories about the JFK assassination and a belief that the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” was a legitimate document.

    Ideas considered absurd are identified in nine different “conspiracy theory boxes,” categorized by September 11, health, the military, outer space, economics, U.S. domestic concerns, U.S. and Islam, Latin America and “others.”


    Funny thing is I visited this site last night. Didn’t notice the “birther” connection.

    Why must you ignore Barry Soetoro’s school record. I’ve embraced it.

    And it states Barry was born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, HI. I’ve accepted it. Why can’t you?

    Is it because the record indicates Barry is a muslim and Indonesian National?

    You know, I looked it up and about 94% of the population in Indonesia is muslim and the other 6% is running for their lives.

    It is not unusual or difficult to believe anyone who voluntarily moves to Indonesia will most likely convert to the Religion of Peace or be killed.

    AFRICA/KENYA – Bishops of Kenya stress need to amend new Constitution as soon as possible

    Cardinal Njue said that while a majority of Kenyans voted in favor of the new Constitution, this does not mean you can ignore the truth.

    “Credibility is not about numbers, but about the truth. Historically truth has never been popular, but the Church has always and will have its role to play in society.

    As the shepherds placed to give moral guidance, we still reiterate the need to address the flawed moral issues in this new Constitution.

    “The League of the Militant Godless”

    Peter Hitchens discusses the decline of Christianity in the West, and his book, The Rage Against God

    (Christopher’s brother, Peter.)


    HH: Thank you for being very generous with your time, Peter.

    I didn’t get a whiff of sort of end of days millennial fanaticism here of the sort that many people like to enmesh themselves in.

    But I do get the sense you really are a pessimist about the West.

    What do you see happening?

    PH: Well, I don’t know.

    It’s just…unless we get some kind of grip on ourselves, unless particularly people begin to realize that the great left liberal experiment has failed on its own terms…what worries my particularly is

    the intelligent and educated people of my country are, by and large, still determined to pursue a series of ideas which can be shown to have failed.

    And until there’s a recognition among in the academy and among those who dominate the media and the publishing industry, and all the other things which influence ideas,

    that this hasn’t worked, that the idea of progress, of material progress and egalitarianism has failed,

    I don’t see how we can get out of this, because this is the secular religion of our elite.

    This is what they want – more and more egalitarianism, more and more secularism, more and more political correctness, more and more personal self-indulgence.

    And I think part of the problem is that maybe people are extremely prosperous in their personal lives, and they do not see the consequences in the lives of the poor of the ideas which they’ve embraced, which are disastrous.

    And one thing which I find very interesting about my brother and about many other people on

    who I would still say were on the political left, and who are also as well in the anti-God front, the League of the Militant Godless, is

    they’re so profoundly uninterested in the minutiae of how society operates.

    They don’t, you never, they’re always writing about grandiose subjects like foreign policy and resistance to Islam and so forth.

    Well, okay, fine. These things are important.

    But you never, ever see them discussing how our society functions, and what’s happening, particularly what’s happening to the poor.

    And they don’t…plus, they don’t know.

    They’re all, everything has to be grandiose and never actually focuses on what’s happening to the person struggling to get his children through schools when the schools are bad.

    What’s happening to the person trying to raise honest children in a dishonest, crime-ridden neighborhood?

    What’s happening to somebody who’s trying to keep his marriage going when all the laws of divorce and property are designed to undermine that marriage?

    What’s happening to people who are trying to keep their children away from dugs when the whole of our culture, all the rock music and all the movies, and all the jokes, and half of the stuff that’s pumped out in the education system says drugs are okay?

    These disastrous things are going on all the time, and nobody in the elite seems to be aware of the awful damage being done to millions and millions of individual lives by it.

    Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh?

    E.J. Dionne on Republican rhetoric and the Ground Zero Mosque controversy


    HH: Oh, E.J., that NFL episode was outrageous, as is…

    EJD: Well, the NFL episode when he talked about Donovan McNabb?

    HH: No, the NFL episode when he tried to buy a piece of the St. Louis [Rams], and he was accused of saying all sorts of things that he never even remotely said, even in jest.

    It was just whole cloth made up, and no one checked the quotes.

    But let me go to something in your column, E.J., today, because it’s a good column, except when you go over the edge, when you write, “do Republican politicians believe…”

    EJD: You see, I sucked you in at the beginning, and then you…

    HH: Yeah, you did.

    But do Republicans, because I believe, as Buckley did, that when extremists get close to your party, you must throw them out.

    And so I always do.

    And when nutters call up my show with the birther stuff, I throw them out.

    I wish the left was even remotely as disciplined as the right is on this.

    But you write, “Do Republican politicians believe in the elaborate conspiracy theories being spun by Glenn Beck, and parts of the Tea Party?

    If not, why won’t they say so?”

    I have no idea what you’re talking about.

    What specifically are you talking about?

    EJD: When people in the Tea Party argue that Barack Obama has a scheme to have the government take over large parts of the economy, let’s take the GM bailout as an interesting example.

    Obama said he didn’t think it would be good for the country to lose our domestic Detroit-based auto industry.

    So he put a lot of taxpayer money in there.

    It was said that he was going to turn this into the thirteenth ward of Chicago, or some patronage dumping ground, it was a socialist scheme to take over industry.

    Guess what? The bailout has worked.

    He gave authority to people running those companies to run them like capitalist companies.

    And the taxpayers may even end up making a profit on what we put in there.

    And so I saw that as part and parcel of a large argument people are trying to make that Obama really wants to turn us into a kind of Leninist nation.

    And you’ve seen the signs. You’ve heard what people say.

    And you know, you can disagree with Obama, but I don’t think there’s any evidence that he is that kind, that he is either a socialist, or has that notion of the use of government.

    HH: Oh, the GM deal has not worked. There’s $50 billion that has not been repaid.

    It’s an unfair competitive advantage that screwed people that were bond holders. But put that all aside.

    You wrote, though, about that there exist elaborate conspiracy theories being spun by Glenn Beck and parts of the Tea Party, which is a specific.

    I have, I just don’t, I haven’t seen Glenn Beck say that you know, this GM was a wedge into the economy that was going to lead to the socialization of industry.

    I’ve heard him criticize the deal.

    And I think that elaborate conspiracy theories, that’s more like, you know, secret societies, Tri-Lateral Commission, Bilderburger stuff.

    EJD: Well actually, there is a lot of that, and Glenn Beck has talked in those terms.

    I think that there is a comparison to be made between some of the things he’s said, and some of the old birther stuff.

    Now I thought I was going to be talking about the mosque, so that’s what I had up on my computer.

    Three Keys To Removing Pelosi From the Speaker’s Chair
    Posted by: Hugh Hewitt

    At least three Republican contenders to defeat three Democratic House incumbents emerged from the Arizona primary last night:

    Dr. Paul Gosar will take on Pelosi-supporter Ann Kirkpatrick in Arizona’s 1rst CD. Gosar is a dentist who has been active in the national political efforts of the profession and should draw support from his colleagues across the country as well as from all opponents of Obamacare.

    David Schweikert will get a rematch with Pelosi-supporter Harry Mitchell in Arizona’s 5th CD. This is a conservative district, lost in 2006 and caught up in the 2008 landslide, but no one works harder than Schweikert who has been campaigning since last year and should take this seat back.

    And Jesse Kellywill take on Pelosi-supporter Gabrielle Gifford in Arizona’s 8th CD. Kelly’s a United States marine combat veteran of Iraq, and Giffords is in for the fight of her career.

    Ben Quayle won the GOP nomination in the race to succeed retiring John Shaddegg, and should join the new Congress if the party quickly comes together after a bruising multi-candidate primary.

    With a strong GOTV, Arizona should contribute at least three of the necessary 39 seats to retire Nancy Pelosi. You can help with a contribution to one or all of these challengers.

    Here is what Pope Benedict says about that theology: “Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it wishes to do the work of God, it becomes not divine but demonic.”

    It is a belief structure that obviously comes from Jeremiah Wright. Where did he get it from?

    From the author of liberation theology, James Cone:


    JAMES CONE, FOUNDER OF LIBERATION THEOLOGY: The only way in which your repentance, your forgiveness can be — can be authentic, your reception of it can be authentic, your repentance can be authentic — is that you give back what you took.

    Arizona Proceeds With Education Reforms Despite Federal Decision

    Building off of this recent momentum, Arizona’s educational reform plan calls for:

    Aid in the transition of schools to the new Common Core Standards and the corresponding assessment system;

    Complete the build out and training of users on data systems that measure student growth and success, and inform teachers and principals how to improve instruction;

    Establish the framework for teacher and principal evaluations, increase the quality teaching pipeline in the highest need schools, provide systemic support for teachers and principals; and

    Establish once and for all a process for turning around struggling schools that engages the local community and focuses on instruction within the context of that school and community.

    In order to begin the implementation of Arizona’s plan and to keep the momentum going, Governor Brewer has called for her P-20 Council to convene again in the next 30 days and develop a detailed implementation plan utilizing the existing resources available in Arizona.

    Holder v. Arpaio: Sheriff’s attorneys met with Justice Dept. today

    “I cannot compete with the local and national media machines that distort my record and the job I’m doing to protect this country.

    And, I don’t have the personal resources to defend myself from these vicious attacks,” said Arpaio

    “You… probably saw that a federal judge blocked the toughest parts of law before it was set to be enacted on July 29th.

    I still support this law 100%.

    Even before this law was passed and the judge blocked parts of it, I was the only law enforcement official in this state enforcing all the laws that our federal and state legislatures put in place to combat illegal immigration and human smuggling,” said the popular law enforcement official.

    “Because I have taken the lead over the years by enforcing existing state and federal laws against illegal immigration, I have become the target of attack by radical, left-wing, open-borders extremists,” said Arpaio.

    When asked about the people coming to Arizona to oppose immigration law enforcement — commonly referred to as “carpetbaggers,” Arpaio said,

    “I’ve been sued, picketed, burned in effigy and even had the Reverend Al Sharpton come to Phoenix — TWICE! — to march on my headquarters.

    Some have even gone so far as to call for my assassination!

    Now, the Mexican Drug Cartels have issued a “hit” on me.”

    “One of the local newspapers printed a political cartoon of me and our Governor wearing Nazi uniforms and performing the Nazi salute,” he laughed.

    Showing he gives little credence to the neo-Stalinist tactics of the far-left.

    “What these extremists really want is a Sheriff who will look the other way, be silent and allow the charade to continue, while ignoring the laws of our land.

    That, I promise, will never happen,” said Arpaio.

    “I won’t back down. I won’t surrender to politicians, thugs or drug dealers!”

    AIR DATE: June 9, 2010

    JIM LEHRER: Senator Barrasso, do you believe that the bulk of the responsibility and the lack of action, as you say, should go to BP, or do you think it’s now the federal government’s responsibility?

    SEN. JOHN BARRASSO: Well, today, in the Energy Committee hearing, the — Secretary Salazar, the secretary of interior, said we have been on top of this and making the decisions from the beginning.

    But I think, when the American people take a look at this, in day 51, and they see the oil continuing to spew out, they’re saying, is everyone helpless? What — what are the best ideas?

    And — and

    *** I had additional questions for the secretary today about the moratorium, because I think that’s going to be a second assault on the Gulf, with — even by the department’s own recognition, that it’s over 100,000 jobs that can be lost if they don’t go back and continue to provide the energy for the people of the United States. ***

    JIM LEHRER: So, you’re — you — you are opposed to the moratorium?

    SEN. JOHN BARRASSO: I am opposed to the moratorium.

    And I asked Secretary Salazar today about that.

    I agree with Senator Landrieu that, even the temporary pause button is going to hurt the economy, at a time that we’re dealing with 9.7 percent unemployment in this country.

  43. rosettasister Says:

    Barrasso called the Obama administration “absolutely reckless” on matters of energy security and economic growth, and said its actions seemed contradictory to the president’s stated focus on job growth.

    The senator was also critical of cap-and-trade legislation passed by the House last year.

    The legislation is designed to curb carbon emissions.

    Because of rising global demand for energy, the bill would have no impact on worldwide environmental stewardship, Barrasso argued.

    But it would have a devastating impact on the local economy, he said.

    “So for us to tie our hands behind our backs with a cap-and-trade bill … and increase costs for American businesses and American homeowners, it is not in our best interest in any way,” he said.

    Along with the other members of the delegation, Enzi implored association members to help elect Republican candidates in congressional races both inside and outside Wyoming.

    “If you get involved, there are enough (seats) in play to change the majority, which sends a big message,” he said.

    He also praised House Min. Leader John Boehner, Min. Whip Eric Cantor and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for developing proposals that “haven’t gotten much coverage or air time.”

    “I’m sure at the back of their Neanderthal minds is the thought that if they
    change this they can find a way to deport Barack Obama to Hawaii.”

    Forget Hawaii.

    I’m not sure if you’ve heard Atty. Phil Berg’s legal argument about Obama’s
    legitimacy to be president, but it is a very compelling one.

    It then asks the
    question why, if the documents suggest his birth in Kenya, why was so much
    of this covered up or ignored?

    After having heard Berg, I think the real issue
    here is why the powers that be need to have Obama in office; not whether he
    was eligible, because if that’s the case, our politicians could put Jimmy Hoffa
    on the 2012 ticket, we might all wind up voting for a piece of cardboard, and
    the country would continue to go down the toilet as usual.

    I had decided that I wasn’t going to get sucked in with that Birther argument
    crowd because they had the attitude that some would associate with Tin Foil
    Hat wearers, but after listening to Berg, he presents some very rational research
    and arguments.

    Then one wonders why the MSM has totally dropped the ball
    on this and why Obama has been shelling out over $900,000 in legal fees
    already, trying to fight this on the QT; well, it certainly makes one wonder

    …………. wonder about the legality of all those laws he signed that might have
    been illegal from the start.

    Of course, everyone so despised the last eight years under Bush the Idiot, that
    anyone with half a brain had jumped off the Republican Train and now they’ll
    do ANYTHING to make sure we don’t return to that level of corruption; even if it
    means the POSSIBILITY of having voted in an ineligible candidate.

    And why, for
    God’s sake, are his records sealed?

    Look I voted for him too, but I want some answers.

    Glenn Beck rally planned at King site

    Despite critics, Glenn Beck has dream, too

    Meanwhile, the buses full of Beck supporters are rolling toward Washington.

    In what Mr. Beck said is an attempt to tone down any political aspect of the gathering, participants have been instructed not to bring signs that could politicize the activities.

    FreedomWorks, a grass-roots group founded by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey and friendly with major “tea party” organizers, will stage a separate convention and several private events.

    Oddly enough, Fox News itself will not be providing any special coverage of the Beck affair, according to a spokeswoman – but C-SPAN will be there from start to finish.

    “And we’re covering Reverend Sharpton’s rally as well,” said spokesman Howard Mortman.

    “Glenn Beck is what I’d call a poli-entertainer,” said John Tantillo, a Manhattan-based marketing analyst who originally coined the term “no-spin zone” for Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

    “He addresses political and cultural ideas, but he makes it compelling and spirited. He makes it fun.

    You have to listen to this man, and as a ‘brand,’ he’s top-notch.

    The guy is brilliant,” Mr. Tantillo said.

    Obama’s Arabic Teleprompter – Imam Rauf!

    Eileen F. Toplansky

    In a stunning revelation, it appears that the controversial Imam Rauf has been quite instrumental in the crafting of the speech that Obama gave in Cairo.

    This report comes from Walid Shoebat who speaks fluent Arabic.

    It is a shocking audio recording of Rauf’s own voice boasting in Arabic that Obama’s historic speech in Cairo was provided by the Imam’s work with the Cordova Initiative.

    Once a terrorist, Walid Shoebat is now an American citizen and lives in the USA under this assumed name.

    He has a unique insight into the world of terror from the perspective of someone who was once a terrorist.

    He has lectured at universities throughout the United States and is also featured in the film “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West.”

    Stop the Tax Hike –Vote GOP. Part 2
    Posted by: Hugh Hewitt

    The only issue is whether stopping the massive tax hikes will help grow the economy and create real jobs, not fake jobs that would not exist but for government subsidies that must go away, and soon.

    Real, lasting employment comes from real, market-driven investment spurred by private individuals making, keeping and reinvesting wealth.

    The folks who make the money are simply much better positioned to invest that money to make more money than is the president, Joe Biden, Lawrence Summers, Timothy Geithner, Nancy Pelosi, Charles Rangle or Harry Reid.

    The sad truth is that Democrats and the hard left base that drives the party seem much more focused on punishing success and continuing the campaign of 2008 than they do with creating the conditions for real, sustained economic growth.

    It will take political shock treatment on November 2 to reconfigure the mindset of the Beltway and to dispatch new majorities in the House and perhaps even the Senate to get growth, not ideology, back at the top of the legislative agenda.

    Yen Tumbles as Bernanke Vows Fed Will Safeguard U.S. Recovery

    Strategy on Hold

    Fed officials put their stimulus-exit strategy on hold this month and decided to purchase Treasury securities with principal payments from the bank’s mortgage holdings to keep its portfolio from shrinking as the mortgage bonds mature.

    It earlier acquired Treasuries and mortgage debt to help spur growth, a strategy known as quantitative easing, before ending the buys this year.

    (quantitative easing = printing money)

    It has kept the benchmark interest rate at a range of zero to 0.25 percent since December 2008.

    The Canadian dollar, nicknamed the loonie for the image of the bird on the C$1 coin, may benefit the most among major currencies if the Fed decides to ease monetary policy further, Barclays Plc said.

    “If there is another round of quantitative easing, the Canadian dollar may be the big winner,” Yuki Sakasai, a Tokyo- based currency strategist at Barclays, wrote in a research note today.

    Canada’s close links to the American economy mean its exports would get a boost if U.S. authorities take steps to expand credit, Sakasai said in a follow-up telephone interview.

  106. rosettasister Says:

    In 1971, Mr. Bryars, who is one of England’s best regarded minimalist composers, was helping with the audio on a friend’s movie.

    He found a bit of tape that featured a an old man singing a short religious verse:

    Jesus’ blood never failed me yet
    Never failed me yet
    Jesus’ blood never failed me yet
    There’s one thing I know
    For he loves me so …

    He took this bit of found sound and while the old man, or tramp as he’s referred to herein, sang it over and over, Mr. Bryars gradually added accompanists, so that continuous loop of the the lonely ditty was eventually joined by a string section or an entire orchestra or whatever he had on hand.

    The composer used variations on this theme that apparently became legendary for their effect on listeners and one earlier version was the first release on Brian Eno’s Obscure Records label.

    For this new definitive (perhaps?) version Mr. Bryars added a part specifically for Tom Waits who had written expressing his admiration for an earlier version.

    The liner notes describe the sections of the work as follows:

    1. Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet [Tramp With Orchestra I]
    2. Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet (Tramp With Orchestra II]
    3. Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet [Tramp With Orchestra III]
    4. Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet [Tramp With Orchestra IV]
    5. Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet [Tramp and Tom Waits With Full Orchestra]
    6. Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet [Coda: Tom Waits With High Strings]

    It fades in from silence onto the tramp singing by himself.

    He’s gradually joined by strings, then by a full orchestra, then by Mr. Waits, then the orchestra and the tramp fade away until it’s just Tom Waits with strings and then by himself and back to silence.

    It lasts for seventy-four minutes with that one unchanging verse being sung the whole time.

    Sounds annoying, huh? You’d think it would be, but instead it’s mesmeric and uplifting.

    Sounds like it must be ironic or even sarcastic, eh? But it’s not.

    Although Mr. Byars does not share the stubborn sentiment of the old man’s song, he quickly understood that any piece he composed around it had to “respect the tramp’s humanity and simple faith”.

    He succeeded brilliantly and his composition is a compelling affirmation that takes on something of the quality of a chant, working on an almost subliminal or subconscious level.

    It has an anodyne effect, leaving the listener cleansed, healed and profoundly moved. Or, at least it does me.

    But, as I said, it’s a very unusual piece of music, so try to give it a listen before you take my word for it.

    Just read on the other thread that there are about 20k waiting in line at one of the metro stations. Looks like a few will miss the start of the rally.

    Great pic! My mom and godparents just called from DC and said they couldn’t even get near the Lincoln Memorial or the broadcast screens. But they were thrilled to be there!

    “There are no words”

    Agreed. Words fail.

    We are all blessed, even those of us who watched from afar.

    For me, one of the most poignant images was during “Amazing Grace” when they cut away to Sarah Palin wiping away a tear.

    And how emotional it must have been for Dr. Alveda King to be standing where her uncle stood and telling the world “I, too, have a dream.”

    I hope we can actually get an account of how many were as this rally. I wonder how many saw this on cspan? I thought this was great.

    Hubby and I had tears at Amazing Grace with the singing.

    I saw Sarah had tears also.

    I am so happy there did not seem to be any there that disrupted this.



    Yes, a nice, peaceful rally that will surely leave the grounds cleaned up.

    We Christian Conservatives are nothing if not clean and tidy. Ha!!

    Seriously though, Glenn promised that he would have a fairly accurate and provable count. He said he would explain it on Monday.

    I noticed there were some planes and a helicopter overhead (in a NO-FLY area!), so I am guessing that he arranged that…I have no idea how he could have, but there definitely were planes up there!

    Do they do ratings of C-Span? It would be interesting to see!

    ‘It has nothing to do with politics; it has everything to do with God’

    Dr. Alveda King was also on the platform, echoing the famous words of her uncle’s “I have a dream” speech.

    “I have a dream,” Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece declared, “that America will pray and that God will forgive us our sins and revive our land.”

    After announcing media estimates that the crowd ranged in size from 300,000 to 500,000, Beck reiterated the rally cry that summed up today’s primary message:

    “It has nothing to do with politics; it has everything to do with God.”

    Glenn Beck “Restore Honor” at Lincoln Memorial

    Glenn Beck — Restoring Honor 8-28-2010 — Lincoln Memorial

    Let me introduce a woman whose family is washed in blood.

    She is at risk for standing here and saying what she believes.

    Ladies and gentlemen, Dr Alveda King!

    Dr King: Praise the Lord. He brings us together, not for politics but to “Restore Honor”.

    [She introduces pastors and vocalists]

    Come on down, my friends.

    How many of us know that we need to rebuild America? And how many of you know that we need you to do it?

    “We must rebuild.

    So many are gone; there must be a reason for me to be here; I do not feel fear.

    Leave all the brokenness behind; we must rebuild, with Change. Etc.

    We have to build our families back up; stick together; show the whole world.

    (repeat, repeat, repeat: “Can we rebuild?”]

    Thank You, Angelica.

    Black young preacher reads a scripture and then the choral group sings Spirituals.

    “Let’s Walk Together In Unity”; “We are in a war against sin; and a house divided [falls in].

    Another scripture: Ephesians 4 (Paul)

    “Show tolerance one to another…”

    Alveda King: My parents were here to support Uncle Martin.

    We all knew that August 28th would be an important day, ultimately about Love.

    He stood in awe at what God was doing.

    “If anyone will honor God, God will honor him.”

    Before honoring comes humility.

    Uncle Martin came out from a roach-infested jail cell to focus on his calling.

    Today we honor people not afraid to give their lives for the freedom of others.

    If he were here, Martin Luther King, Jr., would stand with us and encourage us.

    We are one human family, yes. [applause].

    47 years ago, Uncle Martin said it was a check on a bank nearly bankrupt.

    Our sons and daughters [deserve better].

    Marriage is being threatened, where is the fabric of our society?

    Moral poverty: yet Faith, Hope, and Charity are not dead in America.

    We still have faith in God and America. When will the ‘check’ be good?

    We will know when will we have public prayer in the public square and in public schools.

    Yes, I too have a dream.

    [[She looks up at a third flyover.]]

    I have a dream that White privilege will become Human privilege.

    On that day we can pray for all of God’s children.

    [Angelica leads the singers: Liberty. Let our rejoicings rise; to the skies; let it resound like the rolling seas.]

  130. rosettasister Says:

    King’s niece Alveda King, an anti-abortion activist, addressed Beck’s rally with a plea for prayer “in the public squares of America and in our schools.” Referencing her “Uncle Martin,” King called for national unity by repeatedly declaring “I have a dream.”

    “I have a dream that America will pray and God will forgive us our sins and revive us our land,” King said. “On that day, we will all be able to lift every voice and sing of the love and honor that God desires of all his children.”

  131. rosettasister Says:

    By far the most most stirring part of his speech was about the power of the individual

    “Somewhere in this crowd — I know it. I have been looking for the next George Washington. I can’t find him. I know he is in this crowd. He may be 8 years old, but this is the moment. This is the moment that he dedicates his life, that he sees giants around him. And 25 years from now, he will come not to this stair, but to those stairs. And he can proclaim, ‘I have a new dream.’ That must be our goal: to raise the next great monument.”
