As many in the media twist the facts of Airzona law SB1070 and as Virginia law enforcement officials inquire into immigration status of those they stop or arrest – Singer Lady Gaga joined the chorus of critics blasting Arizona’s controversial new immigration law during a sold-out concert at the US Airways Center in Phoenix this weekend Gaga stated “We have to be active. We have to protest. . . . I will yell and I will scream louder,” the pop sensation added. “I will hold you, and we will hold each other, and we will peaceably protest this state.”
Reset America, I said Reset. As our borders AND “land here in America” is occupied by Mexican Cartels. Who really has the rights to America in Arizona? Those that occupy and hold it by its strength are the real owners of the land … occupation by strength is what makes and breaks countryies, is it not? Our Land is for the “Brave and the Free;” and, as Governor Brewer states … American’s are recommended not to come to areas in Arizona even 80 miles inside the Border. ReSet America – become brave again. Political correctness is not bravery nor does it keep us free.
On to key issues that can ensure safety from Americans. U.S. Adm. Mike Mullen, the highest ranking military officer, on Face the Nation yesterday stated that all options against Iran are on the table inclusive of the United States preemptive attack on Iran. Mullen’s reasoning for potential attacks is based solely on intelligence linking Iran to the development of nuclear weapons. “I think the military options have been on the table and remain on the table,” said Mullen on “Meet the Press” on NBC. “It’s one of the options that the president has.”
So the questions remain. 1) At what point would a preemptive attack be appropriate. And, 2) What nations would be part of a Military against Iran
Asked whether the U.S. military has an attack plan, Mullen said: “We do.” He did not elaborate. Mullen, who addressed the topic in the wake of new sanctions against Iran being imposed by the United States, European Union and United Nations, said there is a narrow space between those two options. He said that space involves sanctions, diplomacy and international pressure and that he remains “hopeful” the combination will yield positive results.
As Mullen discusses Iran and potential military actions, European Union foreign ministers last week agreed to impose the most wide-ranging sanctions on Iran, measures include an asset freeze on some 40 Iranian companies believed to be linked to the country’s nuclear program. The sanctions go further than those imposed by the UN in June including clamping down on financial transactions between the EU and Iran.
Sanctions are having political effect in Iran as protests by merchants go into their second week based upon a plan to increase taxes by 70% – Not much different then here where TAX Protests by the Tea Party are active (SEE TEA PARTY FOOTAGE). The Iranian government is evaluating tax increases to overcome a shortfall from falling oil prices. Iran reportedly is in the midst of a massive economic crisis that may cause people to turn against their rulers.
In a separate development, the case of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani an Iranian woman, who sparked an international outrage after the Iranian government initially sentenced her to death by stoning, was offered asylum by Brazil. Her son brought international attention to her plight, and alerted conservatives to this injustice that brought out Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America (CWA). Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has called on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to allow Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who is still facing execution, to accept the refugee offer.
As BP’s COO Doug Suttles a tour of the Gulf Area and states “he would eat fish from the Gulf of Mexico water and would let his family eat it, too.” But BP is not talking to Emmy Award Winning Film Maker Spike Lee as he ready’s “If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise” a new four-hour documentary on the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

As American’s in the Gulf Torn Region continue and hopes of checks for unemployed fisherman, oil workers and more continue … One of two efforts to seal the ruptured BP oil well could begin as early as Monday night, officials said.
