Real Letter, Real Soldier

With all of these fake letters coming out from soldiers in Iraq, I thought that you all might want to see what a real soldier in Iraq has to say about McCain, Obama, and being an American.
I have corrected a couple of spelling errors, and capitalized a word or two - no content was changed.

With his permission, here it is in its entirety:

I am an American soldier. Sometimes I feel like these words have lost there meaning. I am writing to you from Balad, Iraq and I am here with all my brothers and sisters of the armed forces to protect and defend the freedoms that we all so much enjoy. What now seems like many years ago, My commander and chief called up the few and the proud to travel across the pond to defeat terror and the madness of a cruel ruler. Most of the rest of the world seemed to disagree with this choice and some even cut there ties and went back on promises, unfortunately that is sometimes the cost of doing what is right. Because of the choices of our president I decided to join the army and volunteer to come over here to do my part. Now there is another that needs my help and is receiving fire for merely taking a moral stance against the failing idea’s of what freedom is. John McCain is a warrior and someone who knows exactly what liberty cost, he is now standing against a young candidate with “new” idea’s that he only has borrowed from a failed government system and has openly stated that he pledges no allegiance to this great country that he so desperately wants to change. Edmund Burke once said “all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing” that is why I write this now, not all of us good ol' boys over here are against this war, as a matter of fact I rarely hear anyone speak ill of our president, or positively about Obama. I hope that some of you reading this will agree with me when I say that I am not a “citizen of humanity”
I am an American.

Obama's Birth Certificate Blues - Is It Real?

The following is an article in its entirety form the Lekarev Report. I have posted the whole thing because this is the first I have heard of it, and if it is true, it needs to be on the net.
I don't know if it is fake or real; all I know is that Obama is a Communist, so this would not surprise me.

The Expert Says It's a Fake

Barack Obama may be on a world tour surrounded by a fawning media, but yesterday an expert in electronic document forensics released a detailed report on the purported birth certificate -- actually a "Certification of Live Birth" or COLB -- claimed as genuine by his campaign. The expert concludes with 100% certainty that it is a crudely forged fake: "a horribly forgery," according to the analysis published on the popular right-wing Atlas Shrugs blog.

The purported birth certificate was published by the left wing Daily Kos blog on June 12 in response to unconfirmed reports that Obama was not in fact born in the United States (Canada and Kenya were suggested as the possible locations of his actual birth). Since he would in that case not be a natural born US citizen (his mother was not present in the US sufficiently long as an adult to pass American citizenship on to him automatically), he would not be eligible to be president. Israel Insider has followed the story and uncovered evidence, most recently, of admitted forgery among Daily Kos bloggers, tolerance of electronic forgeries on the blog site, as well as efforts by a blog administrator to conceal the admission of forgery.

The latest examinaton of the purported documents is by far the most detailed and technically sophisticated to date.

Atlas Shrugs publisher Pamela Geller reports that the expert analyst, who goes by the screen name "Techdude", is "an active member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, American College of Forensic Examiners, The International Society of Forensic Computer Examiners, International Information Systems Forensics Association -- the list goes on. He also a board certified as a forensic computer examiner, a certificated legal investigator, and a licensed private investigator. He has been performing computer-based forensic investigations since 1993 (although back then it did not even have a formal name yet) and he has performed countless investigations since then."

The pseudonym was apparently inadequate to prevent Techdude's identity from being exposed. He reports that last week one or more persons "decided to track me down and vandalize my car and hang a dead mutilated rabbit from my front door in a lame attempt to intimidate me from proceeding with releasing any details of my analysis. They did succeed in delaying the report by a few days but instead of deterring him they really angered him. To their credit, he says, the extra days enabled him to locate the most damning piece of evidence, the remnants of the previous security border."

Techdude's detailed report, which runs more than 3000 words and 20 pages with extensive magnified illustrations and comparisons, reaches the following conclusion about the documented that was first published on the Daily Kos extreme left-wing blog and subsequently publicly endorsed by the Obama campaign, both in statements by official spokesmen, and featured on its "Fight the Smears" website. Here are some of conclusions:

"The (Daily) KOS image security border pattern does not match any known specimen from any known year. It does not match the pre-2006 nor does it match the post-2006 certificate patterns. The placement of the text in all of the pre-2006 and post-2006 certificates are almost identical pixel location matches while the image's text placement does not match any known specimen from any known year. The shape and kerning of the fonts used in the 2006 through 2008 certificates are identical while the shape and kerning of the fonts used in the image does not match any known specimen. The KOS image shows clear signs of tampering such as the mismatch in RGB and error levels, visible indications of the previous location of the erased security border, easily detectable patterns of repeating flaws around the new security border, EXIF data that says the image was last saved with Photoshop CS3 for Macintosh, and finally a technician from Hawaii who confirms it just looks wrong."

The evidence, he says, allows for two possible scenarios by which the document was fabricated:

"There are two obvious scenarios used to create the image that can be ascertained from evidence. Either a real COLB was scanned into Photoshop and digitally edited or a real COLB was first scanned to obtain the graphic layout then blanked by soaking the document in solvent to remove the toner. After rescanning the blank page to a separate image the graphics from the previously obtained scan could then be easily applied to the blank scan after some editing and rebuilding. It would also explain why date stamp bleeds through the paper and the various bits of toner located around the image as well as the remnants of the previous location of a security border."

After more than a month of controversy and demands that the Obama campaign produce a paper birth certificate for analysis, this damning new evidence raises the stakes for the democratic party and its front-runner.

Will Obama and his people continue to stonewall in the facing of the mounting evidence of forgery, and provide paper proof of an authentic, original birth certificate or even a genuine secondary Certificate of Live Birth? And will the mass media and mainstream pundits, which so far have hesitated to touch the hot potato, finally address the loaded issue of his possible unfitness to meet the basic Constitutional requirement for a President?

Perhaps the outspoken Israeli press corps will be able to do what their American counterparts have failed to do so far. Obama's visit this week to Israel will be an opportunity to begin asking the tough questions, however unpolitically correct, about his apparently forged birth certificate and what that means for his citizenship status and Constitutional fitness to be the next leader of the free world.

UPDATE: I got a comment from somebody that said, "
Obama's mother's original Social Security Number Application" with this link. Again, I am not saying that it isn't real or that it is.
...for the record.

Thank God Sabbath's Finally Here.

To all three of you out there who come here regularly, I want to apologize for being gone for so long. This has been a very long week.
I am looking forward to having dinner tonight with my family, and actually getting some rest tomorrow.

Appropriately, this is a song about the Sabbath...

My Testimony - Aaron Benge

I've wanted to do this for a long time, but "never had the time."
That's why I am finishing it after 1:00am on a work day - I won't ever have the time.

(click here to see it on YouTube's site)
I know that a good part of the words fade out too quickly - I tried to stretch out their time as good as possible, but there is just too much information to pack into 4 1/2 minutes! There are also a couple of mistakes in the text, but it will have to do for now.

UPDATE: This is totally unrelated, but the Colombian hostages were finally released, according to CNN. Click here for the full story.

ANOTHER UPDATE: My testimony is also now available on GodTube. What's that? You've never heard of GodTube!?! That my friends, as you may well have already guessed, is the kid friendly version of YouTube. If you get the chance, go there and check out a Christian comedian named Michael Jr. he is hilarious.
...or I could just post one of my favorite clips from him here:

"Jogging - Micheal Jr."
