Having grown up in a town adjacent to Farrell, I have a few contacts in the area who can get the word out. Democratic Representative Jason Altmire in Pennsylvania's 4th District will be holding a town hall at Farrell High School on August 26th.
(PITTSBURGH, PA) -- Today, U.S. Congressman Jason Altmire (PA-04) announced that he will hold a town hall meeting on health care reform in Farrell on Wednesday, August 26 at 4:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in the auditorium at Farrell Area High School, located at 1600 Roemer Boulevard in Farrell, PA. Doors will open at 4 pm.
For more information on Altmire, be sure to visit his website.

Also, if you're a constituent and interested in getting on the call list for Altmire's Sept 1st teleconference town hall, be sure to call and make a request:
Constituents who wish to participate in Altmire’s telephone town hall can call his Aliquippa Office at (724) 378-0928 to be added to the call list.
More at Altmire's WEBSITE.

And of course, if you'd like to see what Altmire looks like, here you go....


No doubt the left wing kooks like Shepard Smith are going to label Goldberg's claims absurd but even if he's off base on his conclusions, it's pretty hard to argue with his premise that bureaucracies tend to drift in whatever direction ambiguous language leads them.

Check out what Goldberg had to say. Personally, I liked his "culled from the tribe" reference.



The Noor Islamic Cultural Center in Columbus, OH is the mosque attended by the parents of Fathima Rifqa Bary, who fled to Florida after converting to Christianity out of fear that she would be the victim of an honor killing at the hands of her father, Mohamad.

The fate of the 17-year old girl has yet to be determined. Until September 3rd (the date of the next hearing to determine her fate) a judge has ordered that she remain in foster care. Between now and then, Columbus is expected to find itself under a microscope of scrutiny.

The JAWA REPORT has some interesting facts about both that mosque and the reporter from the COLUMBUS DISPATCH that appears to be quite sympathetic to it. Dispatch reporter Meredith Heagney (Religion) is pictured in the photo wearing a hijab and ID card on her waist.

The local media (including the Columbus Dispatch) should be taking a hard look at the Noor Islamic Cultural Center as its one time resident scholar is a man named Sulah Sultan, who is a Hamas cleric and has since been banned from the United States. You can read more about Sultan at DISCOVER THE NETWORKS and this LIVE LEAK post.

Even more damning is this news report from Erick Stakelbeck two years ago.

With all of that to bolster Rifqa's claim that she is in danger of losing her life at the hands of her own parents and the Islamic community in Columbus, OH it becomes even more despicable when you consider that the Columbus Dispatch appears to be basically aiding and abetting the Noor Islamic Cultural Center in a dishonest and disingenuous propaganda campaign. Ultimately, if Rifqa is sent back to Columbus and murdered, the Dispatch and any reporters involved will have been a accomplices through their collective advocacy of Noor.

In fairness to Heagney, Jawa points out that she's not alone in this despicable and cowardly behavior. The Dispatch itself needs to be investigated. Heagney's employer actually held a seminar for Noor last November called (are you ready for this?), "LEARN TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE MEDIA".

You can email her at but like the town halls, be firm while remaining professional and polite.


Fathima Rifqa Bary is a 17-year old cheerleader and honor student from Columbus, OH. She made news when she fled her Muslim parents who she claims threatened to kill her for converting to Christianity. After traveling by bus to Orlando, FL she met up with friends at the GLOBAL REVOLUTION CHURCH and sought protection.

On Friday, August 21st a judge who many expected to rule that Bary be returned to her family in Columbus, ruled instead that another hearing be scheduled for September 3rd. In the interim, Bary will be permitted to stay in Florida.

The ball is now in the court of the FLORIDA DEPT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT as their findings on the veracity of the teen's claims are expected to be given serious consideration by the judge.

Here is a video of Fathima Rifqa Bary explaining why she does not want to return to her parents. Be sure to read some interesting revelations about her father below the video.

It would appear that like the Congressional recess and Obama-care, the delay in the judge's ruling on Bary could be damaging to the party wanting swift action without investigation. In this case, that party would be Bary's parents.

Pamela Geller at ATLAS SHRUGS has been all over this story and has uncovered some potentially very damaging information about Mohamad Bary:
Mohamad Bary and his wife signed affidavits declaring themselves indigent, and that is why the Florida court appointed a lawyer for the father and a lawyer for the mother. Both their lawyers are being paid by the taxpayers of Florida. Worse still, Aysha and Mohamed Bary's lawyer asked the court for more money at the hearing on Friday, so that they could wage a campaign (depositions, legal docs, filings etc.).

The above is a copy of the Dunn and Bradstreet report of filed by Mohammad Bary for his business, Bary Gems. He states his business does $237,561 per annum. The wife, Aysha Bary, makes high-end bridal gowns (that income may be off the books, but she works every day). It would appear that she works for CUSTOM BRIDAL VEIL -- a company owned by Risana Bary. The same Risana Bary who works with Mohamad (Rifqa Bary's father) at Bary Gems.
It has been learned that Mohamad Bary has the support of CAIR.

What to watch for: If this story continues to play in the media and if the Florida Dept of Law Enforcement makes an honest effort to uncover the truth, Bary's parents may decide to back down. CAIR already HAS A HISTORY of doing this when the heat gets too hot.

Jerry Wilson at the HOUSTON EXAMINER, points out another interesting little factoid about Mohammad Bary (Fathima's father):
Bary's father legally dissolved his jewelry business on July 29 of this year. Given that the business was apparently quite successful, with nearly a quarter of a million dollars in annual sales, the question of why he took this action is raised. Geller speculates the reason may be so he could leave the country with family, including Fathima, in tow and return to his native Sri Lanka where there would be no American judicial or religious oversight.


In 2005, Israel handed the Gaza Strip over to the Palestinians, which were led at the time by the Palestinian Authority. In 2007, Hamas violently wrested complete control of Gaza. Hamas is a group inspired by the Muslim Brotherhood and is similarly Sunni - just like the Taliban.

Jonathan Schanzer at the Jewish Policy Center reports that Hamas is beginning to turn Gaza into something resembling a swath of land in Afghanistan. the two years since the 2007 coup, the Gaza Strip has steadily exhibited the characteristics of "Talibanization" -- a process mirroring the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan in the 1990s whereby the Islamist organization imposed strict rules on women; discouraged activities commonly associated with Western or Christian culture; oppressed non-Muslim minorities; imposed sharia law; and deployed religious police to enforce these laws. This has only served to underscore the dangers associated with the rise to power of Islamist groups in the Muslim world.
Any guesses as to how Ismael Haniyeh, Hamas leader and Gaza overloard responds to such accusations? Hint: The same way the Obama Administration responds to charges that it's spamming the American people with Health Care emails from David Axelrod:
Ismael Haniyeh, the ascendant ruler of Gaza, officially denied accusations by the PLO and some Palestinian media outlets that Hamas intended to establish an Islamic emirate.
Nothing to see here.

Schanzer continues:
The Islamization of justice in Gaza has been compounded by the emerging strength of the "Authority for the Propagation of Morality and Prohibition of Vice," aimed to "fight those who are being corrupted by Satan, and do not observe sharia law." The vice squads were not new; they had operated in Hamas-controlled neighborhoods in Gaza and the West Bank for years. Under Hamas rule, however, they began to operate in wider territory and with impunity.
Authority for the Propagation of Morality and Prohibition of Vice? Is there a Czar in charge of that department?


Isn't it interesting how a country like Honduras sees worldwide outrage when it removes a president from office who is found to have been laying the groundwork for keeping himself in office, which would have blatantly violated his country's Constitution yet not a peep at this insanity taking place in Gaza?


Matthew Vadum has a hard-hitting piece in the American Spectator that outlines what Barack Obama wants to do to 9/11. He wants to transform it into something else through a task master known as "Reverend" Lennox Yearwood (Pictured second from right in the photo taken in front of the White House on August 4th).

As the man in charge of the "Green the Block" campaign and head of the "Hip Hop Caucus", it is apparently a requirement to keep your hip hop hat UN-centered when wearing it (see photo). Vadum reports that on August 11th, Yearwood led a teleconference call in which the following was discussed:
Yearwood and other leaders kept saying repeatedly that they wanted 9/11 to be used for something "positive," "forward-leaning," and "productive," said a source with knowledge of the teleconference.
Great idea. How about we start using it to identify the enemies that attacked us?

But alas, that is apparently not what Obama, and by extension, Lennox Yearwood means.
The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service, but it's not likely many lawmakers thought this meant that day was going to be turned into a celebration of ethanol, carbon emission controls, and radical community organizing.
Of course we're learning that community organizing can only be celebrated when those involved agree with the Community Org in Chief (see town halls).

After 9/11, America made a commitment to never lose its resolve. If the Obama administration is choosing to transform the meaning of that day and we allow it, not only are we losing our resolve but we're willfully replacing it with lies and conscious ignorance. Vadum reports on how Yearwood and company plan to quicken the transformation and it involves a faulty premise - that 9/11 is currently a day of fear.
The plan is to turn a "day of fear" that helps Republicans into a day of activism called the National Day of Service that helps the left. In other words, nihilistic liberals are planning to drain 9/11 of all meaning.
Day of fear? No one likes fear. Who wouldn't want to jettison fear from the meaning of any day? The only reason for it to be a day of fear is to be ignorant of the day's meaning, which is what is being done. The less something is understood, the greater potential there is to fear it. So how does forgetting what 9/11 represents reduce fear? It doesn't. It will exacerbate it.

Be sure to read VADUM'S ENTIRE PIECE.

And you thought 9/11 was supposed to mark a day that will live in infamy. No, you silly. It's National Service Day.
