Happy Bill of Rights Day! Not!

Apparently, it is not enough that Americans are now subjected to molestation and groping in the name of security of air travel, but now the Bill of Rights is null and void. Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act with language that allows American citizens on American soil to be detained indefinitely without due process, without probable cause, without legal representation simply for suspicion of terrorism.

You can read the story for yourself here. http://www.unitedliberty.org/articles/9200-white-house-backs-off-ndaa-veto-threats

Wake up America! I was raised to believe that I live in the best country in the world. A country that people literally would risk everything they have including their lives to have the freedoms we have here. This bill essentially nullifies the Bill of Rights on Bill of Rights Day. Where’s the media? Where is the ACLU? Where are the American citizens? Are we really willing to sacrifice everything for perceived security????

Compromised WordPress Sites Redirecting to Black Hole Exploit Kit Servers

The Black Hole exploit kit is really becoming a serious pain in the neck for people trying to use the Internet. At some point, it may become easier to start a list of the URLs that aren’t hosting the exploit kit, rather than the ones that are. For the time being, the latest entry in the latter category is a group of thousands of WordPress blogs that have been compromised and are now redirecting visitors to sites serving the Black Hole exploit kit.

The ongoing attack is using a combination of tactics to compromise the WordPress blogs. Researchers at Avast found that attackers have been using stolen or guessed FTP credentials on the servers that host the blogs in order upload a malicious PHP file. That file will download other malicious code. The attackers also are exploiting a known vulnerability in the TimThumb image resizing utility used on many blogs to upload the malicious code.

Once the code is on a compromised site, as visitors hit the site the code will generate iframes that will redirect users to a remote site that is hosting the Black Hole kit.

September 11th Remembered

I claim no credit for this post, but the author was spot on so I am reposting.

Dear President Obama,

Part of my life I spent as a photographer. One of the subjects I photographed was the World Trade Center. I loved that place. Every chance I got I wanted to get up to the top of the world and shoot photos and cavort with my friends. I can’t describe what it is, was, like to view the world from that high up, feel the wind, the crisp air, peer into an azure blue and endless sky, and have so much of the this great nation in ones view. I was so nuts about the place I photographed the lobby. Who takes pictures of a lobby? With no one in it? I do. What caught my eye was the flags of all the countries along the walls, and those massive arcing windows just below them. I did it all in black and white, and when I look at those photos now I see a ghost of myself, and this nation. I see what this nation once was, and will be again. Bigger and better than before. As Americans we have earned the right to dream bigger, and build better, than any nation on the planet, it never ceases to amaze me what a free people can accomplish on a voluntary basis. We did not build one of the tallest buildings – we built two of ‘em!

Shortly we will honor those souls who were lost on September 11, 2001. We do this to commemorate the countryman and women we lost, and to thank those who gave their last breath, and their lives, to save people they have never met. Some succeeded, others died as heros to forever rest on Gods’ shoulders; for who would God want more to keep him company for eternity then a few NYPD firefighters and cops! There’s no more pleasant a sound then to listen to a cop and a firefighter yak about absolutely nothing. On that day, Islamic Militants boarded planes, and made a conscious and calculated decision to kill my fellow Americans, and the day after, America, dusted herself off, and went to work facing an enemy that we had pointed lawyers and judges at, and not bullets and bombs, that failure and miscalculation caused that day, President Clinton cashing the peace dividend on the backs of our national defense, and our intelligence efforts caused that day, failing to pull the trigger on Osama caused that day, weakness in the face of evil caused that day . . . but on September 12, 2001 we didn’t care the cause, we all wanted to go to war to keep that day from happening again. Then, President Bush climbed onto hollowed ground and validated our desire and need to kick some tail. When a foreign enemy hits us, we hit ‘em back and when they fall we get the next guy, and the next guy, until the rest of ‘em decide to quit. We know that day has arrived when the next guy decides to pick a plow share, and not a suicide belt – that day, unfortunately, is not today.

At some point something went awry. I’m betting that the notion of proportional response crawled into our leaders minds, and the geopolitical ramifications of this or that counter-attack on what ever country that gave rise to this brand of evil, and then we committed the greatest sin of listening to those voices – even giving them merit. Some of the purveyors of those voices are now leading this nation, in fighting for the enemy politically, they won, and now they are giving those same men and women fighting for this nation their orders – ponder that for a moment. That occurred because the purveyors of those voices had a more than willing far left wing media to amplify them, and tell us that our rage was nothing more than “islamophobia.” Sound familiar? As I write these words islamic militants are planning their next attack, while our President blindly seeks peace with those same people. Do you trust a person who says one thing to one person, and something else to another? Why should we as a nation do that?

On November 6, 2012 we will be asked to render a judgment, and select a new leader who is willing to make tough economic calls based on common sense that we all know in our hearts to be true, and make difficult choices, rapidly, under immense political and emotional strain. While simultaneously resisting the strong desire to prosecute President Obama and his administration for their failures – I think we have had enough of that. Our failed spend first borrow more and open hand foreign policy is a sign of weakness, and stupidity, that our enemies are relying on, and our friends now use as a basis for their mistrust – I don’t blame them. If a murderer came into my home and I gave them access to my bedroom and my children, I have only myself to blame for not being prepared to meet that challenge. Well, ladies and gentleman, we have challenges ahead, we need politicians who will meet them, head on, with enough force to not only check, and reverse the spread of socialism, if not communism, but to have the stomach to fight evil without remorse so the next guy decides that it is not worth the trouble.

You numb nuts in Washington DC may own the clocks, but we’ve got the time, and on November 6, 2012 – times up baby.

UBL is Finally Dead

I have been frustrated by UBL’s existence for 13 years (yes, 13 years). I am glad he will not be alive to cause terror and death to anyone else. I pray for the families of his victims and to his family members as well. I only wish we had gotten the OK to get him in 1998 before his terrorist organization became more organized and more resolved to kill. May his victims finally rest in peace.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you all! I hope you have a wonderful time with family but most importantly, I hope you remember the reason for the season. God sent His Son to be born of a virgin so that this child, who was fully God and fully man, could later die for our sins.  God gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we could know Him and spend eternity with Him. There has never been nor will there ever be a greater gift!

As you spend Christmas Eve or Christmas Day with your family, maybe you could pull out your family Bible and read Luke 2.

No matter what you believe…no matter what you have going on in your life…miracles do happen around Christams time. I pray that you have a wonderful and joyous Christmas with your family and all  your hopes and dreams come true. Most importantly, I pray that you KNOW in your HEART the one and only TRUE meaning of Christmas.
