Rosie O’Donnell Says “Helen Thomas Had It Right”??????

We had better pay attention to everything that is happening these days. Sometimes things look  innocent and harmless and we tend to shrug our shoulders and ignore them.  THAT HAS TO STOP!!

Listen very carefully to Rosie O’Donnell as she discusses the forced retirement of White House correspondent Helen Thomas who made reprehensible statements about “Jews should get the hell out of Palestine”.

It is so apparent that Rosie has not read this book called the BIBLE or maybe she has read it and just doesn’t believe what it says. Hey, that’s all good because  in spite of what this current administration is trying to do to this country, this is still America, the home of the FREE.  Free speech and free thought so Rosie and Helen Thomas are entitled to their opinion but  not their own truth.  There is only one Truth, period.  That Truth is found in the Holy Bible, period. The Truth gave the land of Israel to the Jews, so they are HOME, period.  The Truth also says, all who bless Israel (the Jews) will be blessed and all who curse Israel (the Jews) will be cursed, period. Genesis 12:3

Please note that Rosie and her friend are saying that Helen Thomas was forced to retire because of political correctness.  It is chilling to hear them speak of the history of Jews in Germany and Poland in such casual terms, that is, “the ovens are not there anymore“.  It is chilling to think that anyone would suggest that Jews should go home to Germany and Poland, places where unthinkable things happened to them ….

Nazi medical experiments: a prisoner is submerged in a tank filled with cold water. The goal of this type of experiments was to check how long German pilots, who had to parachute into the cold north sea, would survive. Different types of clothing were tested, as well as different methods for reviving the experimental subjects who survived.

Though the ovens are no longer there, Rosie and Helen, the memories will be there forever.  We

will never forget.

The following is an excerpt from the memoir of a Holocaust survivor, Erna F. Rubinstein.  This is one of millions that were compiled for The Nizkor Project.

"One Sunday morning, we were summoned
to the Appellplatz [ed. note: this
was the central square at Plaszow 
concentration camp. knm]. This was an
unusual call, and we didn't know what 
to expect. We lined up in fives
according to working groups as we did 
every morning and every evening, and
waited. The number of SS men watching 
us was greater than usual, and the
Jewish policemen, in particular, had a 
gloomy look. We noticed something
that looked like a gallows in the middle 
of the Appellplatz.

`Why would the Germans go to the trouble 
of hanging people when they can
shoot them instantly?' someone asked.

`They must add some color to the killing,' 
Pola snapped. 

Three young people, a girl and two boys, 
were brought in front of the
gallows. A stillness, terrible, frightening, 
covered the Appellplatz. No
one moved; even the guards and the Jewish 
policemen were motionless.

I didn't want to look up. I could scarcely 
breathe the air was so heavy. In
spite of myself, my eyes rested on the girl. 
It was Hela, a school friend
of mine. She seemed taller than she was, 
for she was so slender, and there
was a haunting beauty in her large, clear 
eyes. She was self-controlled as
she stood there in front of the gallows. 
The voice of the Commander

`These three tried to escape from work; 
they are charged with treason and
sabotage! For this, they will hang!'

As the guard finished, the hangman tied 
ropes around the necks of the three
and pulled up. My friend fell. A hissing 
sound went through the crowd. My
heart was beating fast. Maybe they would 
let her live. I remember reading
somewhere that there was such a law; if 
someone was hanged and fell, he
would be allowed to live.

For the Germans, however, there were no 
laws. Again, the noose was placed
around Hela's neck, and this time there 
was no fumbling. We all had to
watch. The guards were walking around our 
columns and making us look. Those
who looked away were pushed with the guns; 
those who fainted, and many did,
were poked with guns until they came to. 
I stood there and watched, trying
to imagine that it was just another 
nightmare that would soon be forgotten.

We were slowly learning to live with horror, 
tragedy, and cruelty. We were
becoming immune to it, or so we thought. 
Not long after the first hanging,
we were called to the Appellplatz again on 
a Sunday. This time we knew we
had to witness another spectacle the 
Germans had prepared for us."

Carly Fiorina Talks About Sean Hannity And Mocks Barbara Boxer’s Hair On Open Mic

Is this funny or what?  Carly Fiorina is caught gabbing about Sean Hannity not being an easy interview – she wonders why Meg Whitman has chosen Sean Hannity as a first interview right after winning this past Tuesday.  What does that say about Carly?  Does she think Hannity is too conservative?  If so, then we who are conservative are in trouble.  We cannot tolerate another RINO in the Senate at this time so please, Carly, what did you mean?

Get it together, Carly

Way To Go, Chicago Blackhawks!!!

Congratulations Chicago Blackhawks On Your 2010 Stanley Cup Win!!

June 9, 2010

2010 Stanley Cup champions. (Scott Strazzante, Chicago Tribune / June 9, 2010)

PHILADELPHIA — After nearly half a century, the Stanley Cup again belongs to Chicago.

The Blackhawks brought it home for themselves and their fans — both long-suffering and those who jumped on board during a remarkable resurgence that began just three seasons ago — when they defeated the Flyers 4-3 in overtime Wednesday night at a raucous Wachovia Center.

The NHL championship is the Hawks’ first since 1961, snapping 49 years without the coveted Cup in their grasp and is their fourth in a team history that began in 1926 as members of the Original Six franchises.

Jonathan Toews, the youngest captain in the league at 22 years old, hoisted the Cup as the Hawks celebrated on the ice in front of a stunned Philadelphia crowd that saw the Flyers’ miraculous postseason run come to a crashing halt.

Patrick Kane scored the game-winner 4 minutes, 6 seconds into overtime and Dustin Byfuglien, Patrick Sharp and Andrew Ladd also had goals. Goaltender Antti Niemi claimed his team-record 16th victory in a postseason.

The win capped a dramatic turnaround for the organization that began with the drafting of Kane with the top overall selection in the 2007, continued with the ascension of Rocky Wirtz to team chairman following the death of his father, William, and the hiring of John McDonough as team president.

Along the way, former general manager Dale Tallon was assembling much of the team that boarded a flight home Wednesday night with the Cup in tow after a spirited celebration.

Kane scored on a shot from along the goal line that eluded Michael Leighton to the far side. The puck went in like a flash and under the goal, and for a moment no one in the arena knew what had happened except one person.

“I knew it was in right away,” said Kane, who ripped off his gloves and skated down the ice with his arms thrust in the air. “I just kind of tried to take off and book it to the other end and try to start the celebration.

“It was crazy. At the moment it’s just like, ‘We won the Stanley Cup’ and that’s all you’re thinking about. To play this game, this is the only thing I want to do in the world and be a part of moments like this.”

The Hawks were just under four minutes left in regulation from claiming the Cup when Scott Hartnell scored his second goal of the game for the Flyers to tie it at 3-3 and send it to overtime.

It didn’t take Kane long to cap a memorable season that began with games in Europe and ended in Philadelphia.

“So many great things have happened for this team and this is the height of it all,” said Toews, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs. “It was awesome. I just wanted to rip (the Cup) off that table and go give it to the boys. It’s everything it was hyped up to be.”

Added coach Joel Quenneville: “It’s just the greatest feeling. We had some good momentum and mostly positive and upsides all year long. From the start of the year to the end of the year, you can’t ask for a better bunch of guys to work with.” The celebration on the ice lasted well after the game and included members of the organization, each taking their turn with the Cup in the air as Hawks fans who made the trip to Philadelphia cheered them on.

“I was so happy for my dad and grandfather (Arthur) that we could do this, so I hoisted that Cup in honor of them,” Rocky Wirtz said. “I’ve never felt this exhilaration in my life. We put the right people in place and anything can happen if you dream big.
