From the CBC:

Friends of U.S. army deserter say he faces deportation on Monday

VANCOUVER – Friends of a U.S. army deserter who failed to get refugee status in Canada say the 25-year-old who fled to Canada to avoid serving in Iraq is facing deportation this week.

Supporters of Robin Long say he learned Friday at a hastily called deportation hearing that the Canada Border Services Agency plans to send him back to the U.S. as early as next Monday.

“This is quite a bombshell in what we thought was a pretty routine administration hearing,” said Bob Ages of the Vancouver War Resisters Support Campaign.

Long had been arrested for allegedly failing to report in by telephone, Ages said.

“Rather than just getting a finger waving or upping his bond, they say, ‘There’s no point in releasing him because we’re deporting him tomorrow.”‘…

Read the rest here. According to everything I read today, Long failed to report to wherever he was supposed to last Thursday – a telephone call, or some other major inconvenience for him. And, oh yes, he was arrested July 4th…:)

Now, of course the war resisters are up in arms (yes, pun intended….lol) and going to be rallying etc…blah blah blah. If you want to know more about Long and his fellow American war resisters, go here.

I understand about having principles and all, really I do. But again, I read that Long received orders to Iraq in 2005. No military genius here, but that tells me he signed on with the military after we had gone to Iraq. What did he think he would be doing in the military? Basketweaving? And, if he is that adamant that the war in Iraq is wrong, why NOT stay in the US and go a legal route? Ya know, like stand by his principles? There appear to be more than a few lawyers willing to step up and defend him.

The insanity continues!

"The Race"

File this under: “Something new I learned today.” Despite Obama smearing anyone else who talks about race – apart from him of course – as racist, it seems there really IS a group called “The Race.” Michelle Malkin has a column up at Family Security Matters, and it is an eye-opener:

15 Things You Should Know about “The Race”

Only in America could critics of a group called “The Race” be labeled racists. Such is the triumph of left-wing identity chauvinists, whose aggressive activists and supine abettors have succeeded in redefining all opposition as “hate.”

Both Barack Obama and John McCain will speak this week in San Diego at the annual conference of the National Council of La Raza, the Latino organization whose name is Spanish for, yes, “The Race.” Can you imagine Obama and McCain paying homage to a group of white people who called themselves that? No matter.

The presidential candidates and the media have legitimized “The Race” as a mainstream ethnic lobbying group and marginalized its critics as intolerant bigots. The unvarnished truth is that the group is a radical ethnic nationalist outfit that abuses your tax dollars and milks PC politics to undermine our sovereignty.

Here are 15 things you should know about “The Race”:

15. “The Race” supports driver’s licenses for illegal aliens.

14.”The Race” demands in-state tuition discounts for illegal alien students that are not available to law-abiding U.S. citizens and law-abiding legal immigrants.

13. “The Race” vehemently opposes cooperative immigration enforcement efforts between local, state and federal authorities.

12. “The Race” opposes a secure fence on the southern border….


Every American should read the rest of this here.

Myth vs Fact

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace.

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3243:

Abdullah (b. Mas’ud) reported: We were on an expedition with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and we had no women with us. We said: Should we not have ourselves castrated? He (the Holy Prophet) forbade us to do so He then granted us permission that we should contract temporary marriage for a stipulated period giving her a garment, and ‘Abdullah then recited this verse: ‘Those who believe do not make unlawful the good things which Allah has made lawful for you, and do not transgress. Allah does not like trangressers” (al-Qur’an, v. 87).
