The New Pyramid Builders

Good article by Edward Kline at Family Security Matters. In his piece he references the article by Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld called America For Sale (see my previous post here).

Mr. Kline discusses how Saudi and other Arab ruling families are financing "the new pyramids" throughout the world. These include towers, high-rises, museums, etc. He notes that each one of these construction projects is government sponsored, but the government is the family-run oil oligarchies. And Americans help pay for these vain excesses in high gas and oil prices.

Their legislative bodies are purely artificial fictions beholden to ruling families. The only persons who have billions to invest in these new pyramids are those related or closely connected to those ruling families.

There is no doubt what the goal of the "new pyramid builders" is:
[They] seek to bury the corpse of the West in their own. No one should doubt that Islam - including its kings, emirs, princes, mullahs, imams, its billionaires, its countless mind-stunted manqués, and its homicidal killers - wishes to eviscerate the West, and especially the U.S.

Alan Keyes on Gun Rights and the Second Amendment

Good to see and hear Dr. Alan Keyes at the Gun Rights Rally in Harrisburg, PA today.

Listed below are a few quotes from Dr. Keyes in 2007 on gun rights and the Second Amendment. These quotes and many more from Dr. Keyes can be found here:

The gun control agenda is based on the view that ordinary citizens cannot be trusted to use the physical power of arms responsibly. But a people that cannot be trusted with guns cannot be trusted with the much more dangerous powers of self-government. The gun control agenda is thus an implicit denial of the human capacity for self-government and is tyrannical in principle.

I am a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment. The right to keep and bear arms was included in the Bill of Rights so that when, by a long train of abuses, government evinces a methodical design upon our natural rights, we will have the means to protect and recover those rights.

In fact, if we make the judgment that our rights are being systematically violated, we have not merely the right, but the duty, to resist and overthrow the power responsible. That duty requires that we maintain the material capacity to resist tyranny, if necessary -- something that is very difficult to do if the government has all the weapons. A strong case can be made, therefore, that it is a fundamental DUTY of the free citizen to keep and bear arms.

PA Gun Rights Rally Recaps

Gun Owners Rally at Capital

Some of Alan Keyes' comments from the rally:

"You cannot defend your life if you give up the means of that defense. If it is your right to stand in defense of your family and your home than you have the right and means to enable you to fufill that obligation."

"Owning firearms is integral to the "right of people to govern themselves. [And this era of terrorism should remind citizens they] can't delegate to government the responsibility for defense of our lives."

"At the end of the day sovereignty means, when push comes to shove, you are in charge."
