Independent Sentinel

I think back on the days of my childhood, days when all the kids in the neighborhood I lived in would get together for a game of stickball. All colors, all nationalities, everyone would play. Some better than others, but everyone would play until our mothers called us home at dark for dinner. The only break would come when the ice cream truck came by, and if someone didn’t have the dime for ice cream, someone else would buy it for them.

Times have changed, but the basic principles of how I was brought up have stuck with me. It doesn’t make for a tranquil way of life these days. There is a choice which must be made by every one of our citizens. Do we keep those old values, or do we toss them to the side for a more modern way of living our lives?

For me, I’ve had enough. There are certain things I am tired of:

5 Ways Muslims Have Contributed to ‘Building the Very Fabric of Our Nation’

PJ Media

Last Sunday, in his message congratulating Muslims on Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, Barack Obama wrote: “Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” That’s right: he said “many achievements and contributions.” I could only think of five. Maybe you will be able to think of some more.

Forced Marriages in Our Own Backyard

Right Side News

On February 22, 2011, Jessie Bender, (below) a 13-year-old southern California girl, ran away from home. No, Jessie was not into “sex, drugs, or rock n’ roll.” On the contrary. Jessie was terrified that her American-born mother, Melissa, a convert to Islam, and her mother’s Pakistani boyfriend and acting stepfather Mohammed “Mo” Khan, had decided to send her to Pakistan to be married against her will. Had Jessie gone, her mother and “Mo” would have received $3000.00.

Will Obama “Persuade” Americans their Slavery is Inevitable?


For months, virtually each and every day Usurper-and-Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama has been removing one or more of We-the-People’s liberties. Whether one wishes to ignore it or not, Obama is now in an all-out war against the American people and their soon-to-be former way of life. And he has no intention of stopping until American citizens are slaves to The Obama and illegal immigrants (aka “Obama Amnestees”) are his indentured servants. Please note that under the thumb of The Obama, illegals already have more “rights” than US citizens.

Using taxpayer monies, The Obama has already begun his 2012 campaign for POTUS—when he will again NOT have to even remotely prove any natural-born US citizenship. Apparently, Article II of the US Constitution is now no more than a novelty or an historical footnote. Obama’s Campaign of Lies begins anew, as he tells us “his” economy is getting better while all empirical evidence to the contrary tells us it is getting worse—much worse. The Obama smiles crookedly as he tells us that he has “saved” [impossible to calculate] or “created” 3.6 million jobs, while he has actually lost over 8 million. Even Obama’s VP Joe Biden said: “There’s no possibility to restore 8 million jobs lost in the Great Recession.” But, still they blame President George W. Bush; the POTUS who brought us the lowest unemployment in decades. US World and News Report during the Bush Administration showed ‘Productivity growth for 2000-2005 is 3.4%, the highest of ANY five year period in FIFTY years’. This growth occurred, I might add, even though we were brutally attacked by Islamists on September 11, 2001.
