His father abandoned the family when the child was an infant, His mother became a prostitute and the boy and his sister had to live with their grandmother.
Early in life he proved to be gifted for music and with three other kids he sang in the streets of New Orleans. His first gains were the coins that were thrown to them.
A Jewish family, Karnofsky, who had immigrated from Lithuania to the USA had pity for the 7-year-old boy and brought him into their home.
Initially given ‘work’ in the house, to feed this hungry child. There he remained and slept in this Jewish families home where, for the first time in his life he was treated with kindness and tenderness.
When he went to bed, Mrs. Karnovsky sang him a Russian Lullaby that he would sing with her.
Later, he learned to sing and play several Russian and Jewish songs.
Over time, this boy became the adopted son of this family.
The Karnofskys gave him money to buy his first musical instrument; as well the custom in the Jewish families. They sincerely admired his musical talent. Later, when he became professional musician and composer, he used these Jewish melodies in compositions, such as St. James Infirmary and Go Down Moses.
The little black boy grew up and wrote a book about this Jewish family who had adopted him in 1907.
In memory of this family and until the end of his life, he wore a star of David and said that in this family he had learned “how to live real life and determination.”
You might recognize his name.
This little boy was called Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong.
With all the horror around us friends..I needed THIS baddo.
Give a listen. It will help you heal and soar..Trust me on this.
Blessings to each and every one of you keeping the Faith through these frightening times.
In Feburary 2012, A team from The United West was in Israel and interviewed Pastor Umar Mulinde at the Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv.
Ok, satiated Americans and other global inhabitants, it’s time for the Ji-had Challenge of the Day. I’ll give you the ANSWER and you provide the QUESTION.
Here is the answer – IS=LAM.
Now, what is the question?
Well, if you gave the following question you are correct!
What is the unifying consistent for situations where a Christian Pastor has acid thrown in his face by Mus-lims in Uganda; Mus-lim brothers are beheading their Mus-lim brothers in an internecine war in Syria; Mus-lim warriors are kidnapping young girls in Africa and selling them- as sex slaves; Mus-lims are trying to blow up more buildings in New York; Mus=lims are initiating genocide on Christians in Iraq; and Mus-lims in Gaza are targeting Jewish civilians in their effort to destroy Israel.
In as much as our lefty heroes of academia are now choking on their tofu, not believing that someone actually used the term “Is–lam” in a sentence without killing its essence by the death of a thousand qualifications, the uncomfortable fact remains, at least forensically.
Certainly, other unifying constants include the breathing of oxygen and chewing with teeth, but for the mildly curious, those factors just don’t seem to get someone all ji-haded up enough to enjoy watching the blood of life flow from hapless teenage girls. No, there has to be something else and that something else is graphically illustrated subjectively and objectively in this short interview with Pastor Umar Mulinde.
Nevertheless, please watch and listen to this amazing Christian man as he independently makes the case to the West that this current battle “the Jews are fighting over there,” is actually one small component of the fight that the West is engaged in against Is-lamic ji-had.
Therefore, it is intellectually and materially essential that all countries and people who hold to the Judeo-Christian values of Western Civilization stand with Israel in her critical defining moment fighting not just against some “wide-eyed” HAM-AS terrorists who just want to have jihad sex with seventy-two virgins, but indeed understanding the global ramifications of this war and realizing that were Israel to lose, which means anything short of complete destruction of HAM-AS, then coming to a theatre near you, regular doses of sulfuric acid to the face and other vital areas of the West.
Pastor Umar Mulinde. God bless you mightily.
THIS is how the mainstream media reports on the Muzlim Brothahood takeover of Libya and Tunisia:
‘This is the first time in my life I’ve truly voted. It is something extraordinary’ !!
Oh yes extraordinary indeed.
Ennahda’s fortunes could have a bearing on Egyptian elections set for next month in which the Mus-lim Brotherhood, an ideological ally, also hopes to emerge strongest. An Ennahda victory would be the first such success in the Arab world since Hamas won a 2006 Palestinian vote.
Ah yes….Muzlims voted Ham-ASS into power.
For the baby slashing, children killing, civilian slaughterers: Ham-ASS.
But Of course Buraq Hussein is pulling our troops out of Iraq, where Christian-cide is ongoing just like in ahem…newly “freed” Egypt.
Iran’s threat looms and I said from Day One…
Iraq will never be anything but another Sha-riah Hellhole.
But more Arab springing and jumpin all ovah the world.
NO JEWS ALLOWED IN ANY OF THEIR SO CALLED DEMOCRACIES.
CHRISTIANS SLAUGHTERED AND BURNED ALIVE..
but hey…THEY’RE VOTING!!
THE ARAB SPRING:the term du jour for the flat out chaos and anti Christian, anti-semitic fest in the Middle East.
The Jew and Christian hating 22 Arab countries have no history of “constitutional rule” period. And you can bet your infidel tuchus that “Consitutional rule” aint goin’ to “spring” from Muzlims anytime soon…no wait..Make that EVER.
(Note the swastika keffiyah shmata on his head.)
Christians and Jews will never even be offered a modicum of civil rights..and as as far as women and self proclaimed homo-se-xuals…..Uh uh.
Not exactly welcome in their totalitarian political ideology guys and dolls.
And not part of the “springing” and jumpin up n down apparently.
A persevering culture, which is grounded in the Judeo-Christian view of morality, emphasizing the moral worth of each individual– is the very first prerequisite of democracy.
And err…um….Not a single Muzlim country on God’s green earth is blessed with such a resplendent culture… and furthermore…no Arab country shows even the slightest sign of even moseying in that direction.
And guess what guys and dolls..
The more things change..the more they……….
In loving memory of all the thousands wounded and killed by Jeehad.. WE WILL NOT SUBMIT.
Spare us the pieties and righteous indignation of Europe. The final solution turned out to be Israel and they can’t handle it.
Europe is in an uproar. Frankfurt, Germany is rioting, along with France, the UK and in other places where where it’s Springtime for Hitler all over again.
But even over here in America the streets are filling up with hateful marches and slogans against the Jewish State.
Much of this is triggered by Mus-lims who arrive here with a grudge and stay with a grudge.
But also…television termite Jon Stewart sleeps comfortably in his own bed but can find no heart for a million Jewish children who must spend half their lives running for cover as rockets keep raining down from Gaza.
Thousands of Israeli children have been so traumatized over the years from relentless bombardment that they’re afraid to leave their bomb shelters – ever.
Television imbecile Geraldo Rivera has likewise been heard from – a self-proclaimed “passionate Zionist” so long as the Jewish State refrains from defending herself.
Thank you, Europe, for reminding us why America was discovered just in time and why Israel was redeemed many generations too late.
You dare judge Israel? In your deportations, your expulsions, your forced conversions, your inquisitions, your pogroms, finally your Holocaust you have no moral authority over Israel or even within your own borders. You gave all that up from 1492 to 1942 and beyond.
Not exactly the word that leaps to mind.
Let us dissect the Lib Christian and Jew haters’ plan shall we?
Ah yes…Reform Rabbis and Episcopalian latter-day shamans and oracles of our modern world….embracing Shaaariah and Dhimmitude in all its ahem…glory.
–Here are some talkin points from the deceivers who really can’t quite contain their hidden Agenda:
“The only other place where such a thing exists is Jerusalem,” said Dr. Sy-ed Moh-iuddin,……. Moh-iuddin’s organization, the American Institute of Is-lamic Studies and Culture, is building a mosque on the campus.
“Jerusalem is so important to these three faiths. We are sort of reproducing that model.”
Ummm……Jerusalem is so important to these three faiths.?
Since when does Jerusalem have anything whatsoever to do with Izlam?
Hard-core turbo lefties re writing the history of Israel.
–How bout this lil tidbit?
“I don’t personally take offense because I recognize that a small, tiny minority of Muslims have caused people to fear, and the press in the United States has not helped,” he said. “We think the best way to combat that is to let people get to know us and not be afraid.”
Clue #1: Muzlims routinely destroy property, threaten death and bodily harm to those who speak out against them, and they constantly fund terrorism throughout the world.
But who’s counting eh?
Apparently not “Moderate” Muzlims.
But But But ………….it’s the American Press that is to blame.
–And needless to say..
Muzlims playin the BLAME GAME:
……the task could prove particularly challenging for the American Institute of Islamic Studies and Culture, a new not-for-profit devoted to countering the image of violent Is-lam in American society..
Not devoted to eliminating Izlamic terror but ………..Countering the “image of violent Is-lam” in American society?
All MuZlim societies —-Pakistan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Gaza, Iraq, Algeria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Iran etc etc etc……………… remain the most violent, brutal, impoverished and benighted cultures on earth.
But it’s an “image” problem?
Rrrright. The poison pill swallowed whole by self hating Reform Jews and Episcopalians in Omaha.
–Ohhh and now the Jooooooooish issue:
But there also have been moments of tension, such as when the Jewish Federation of Omaha’s newspaper, the Jewish Press, publicized the fact that Naser Z. Alsharif, an American of Palestinian descent who serves on the Tri-Faith board, signed on to a boycott of Israeli academic and cultural institutions.
Oh an anti Israel, anti-semite in their ranks?
Scratch a so called “Moderate”..and what do you find.
“We are all Good.
The Jews (and Christians) are very bad.
The U.S. is great Satan, Israel is little Satan….UGA UGA UGA.”
And shame on America for not wanting a mosque aka terrorist cell on the site of Ground Zero… or the IDF for fighting against all those ahem “innocent peace activists” who are just carrying a plate of cookies and a white flag towards us infidels no doubt.
Muzzlims Blamed for the Sept 11 terrorist attacks?
Um…that’s because they perpetrated them fool.
Oooops. Wer’e supposed to say Radical Isssssssslam, right?
Oh and not for nothin but has any Muzzzzlim “leader”, radical or not…….. ever apologized for 9-11? EVER?
Any imaaaaaaaam apologize for the barbarians people who murdered, firebombed embassies and rioted because they didn’t like some um.. “cartoons”?
Any huge rally by the alleged millions of ahem..”moderate” Muzlims denouncing all the horror their co-religionists have wrought?
The root cause of terrorism you ask?
Simple: It is its success – given to it by its willing victims.
WE WILL NOT SUBMIT.
Daily life for Israeli children:
The Congregation of Zion church in Stockton, California is showing solidarity with Israel during Operation Protective Edge by staging a mock air raid drill that allows members to experience what Israelis are going through as civilians run for cover from Hamas rockets aimed indiscriminately at population centers.
The video of the air raid drill, posted on YouTube and covered by the Times of Israel, has gone viral:
The church’s website devotes an entire section to “Standing with Israel,” declaring: “We believe Israel is God’s special people, distinct from the body of Messiah, chosen by Him to be a holy nation and a kingdom of priests.”
Too much insanity and sorrow sweet friends..Time to stop and just celebrate. We sure do deserve a break from the madness eh.
It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.
What dance was very popular in 1776?
George Bernard Shaw once said: Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
Not us sweet friends. Not us.
So without further ado..On to the BBQ!
Here’s what I have planned …so far, that is…heh
Chicken and corn…what’s better than that?
I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.

Did you hear about the cartoonist in the Continental Army?
He was a Yankee doodler! ha
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

Jus rememba sweet friends:
Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.
Red, white and blue HUGS! sweet, patriotic, Friends!
Gild Shaharr, age 16.
Naftali Frenkel, age 16.
Eyal Yifrach, age19.
Forgive me friends for I do NOT know what to feel.
What do you feel?
Sickened? Enraged beyond measure? What, praytell?
THIS is how the savages reacted to the kidnapping: Handing out candy!
The most despicable JEW haters on the face of the Earth get another free pass..at doing what they do best: HATING and killing infidels in cold blood.
Ah yes..the ever so easily “offended” class………..
Say whatever you wish about Jesus, but don’t you dare draw a MuuuhaMAD cartoon.
WHERE ARE THE people of conscience’s VOICES.. did you hear any outcry yet? Any media frenzy?
And….In other Muzlim newz that the NY Times will nevah report:
Abbas vows: No room for Israelis in Palestinian state.
“We have frankly said, and always will say: If there is an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, we won’t agree to the presence of one Israeli in it,” Abbas told reporters in Ramallah.
If that’s not the Doozie of the Day, I don’t know what is.
(Those pesky lil things Liberals jus hate to deal with…)
-The Arabs stole Israel once, in what they themselves admittedly called a “war of annihilation” in 1948.
-They “occupied” it for nineteen years and then launched another “war of annihilation” again– against Israel in 1967.
But this time they…errr… lost.
What did they do in Jerusalem during those 19 years.
Um…Can you say Nothing?
Oh wait…that’s wrong. They desecrated every Jewish Holy site including the destruction of every one of the 57 synagogues.
What they did not do, was call Jerusalem their capital. That was and by the way—-still is -Amman.
Oh..and speakin of discrimination and hatred and Apartheid…. Arabs did not allow free access to people of all Faiths.
Shocker, I know.
That, sweet friends has only EVER occurred under evil, Zionist Israeli sovereignty.
Israel has allowed one million Arabs in their one tiny Jewish state.
Why, I have no clue.
The rabidly anti Christian and anti Jewish Muzlims -have twenty-two states with almost no Jews, and Christians leaving in droves.
In Jordan, which was created in 1920 exclusively for those poor put upon “Palestine” Arabs— Jews were banned.
Jordan has NOT ONE JEW.
See any “so called liberals” marching and demonstrating on the streets against this RACIST, apartheid Judenrein state? Don’t answer that.
And along comes the typical “Moderate Muzlim” : Abbas, proposing what ALL Muzlims do: ethnic cleansing of Jews.
And no one bats an eye(lash).
Who’s gunna give Abbas the memo that Jesus was not born on this day in an ethnically cleansed “Palestinian” state?
Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East.
Shoud I repeat that 300 times or say it 10X fast?
HATE HATE HATE.
“It’s all good” as long as IzlamoNazis are the ones spewing insult and injury, right?
And yet another three beautiful souls stolen by these monsters…….
Dearest precious familes and friends of Gilad, Naftali and Eyal:
We pray the love of God enfolds you during your journey through grief.
May the good Lord comfort you with the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
Jason Mattera caught up with Hillary Clinton at one of the DC stops on her book tour this week, and asked the former Secretary of State if she would mind signing a copy of Hard Choices… but with a twist. “If you could make it out to Christopher Stevens,” Mattera queried. “I think you knew him.”
Christopher Stevens, of course, was the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was murdered along with three other Americans on Clinton’s watch, when Jihadists attacked two U.S. outposts in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.
In rides Jason Mattera on his American white horse.
“We will not be intimidated by radical Is-lamic thugs…CA-IR can go to Hell and they can take their 72 virgins with them.”
Jason Mattera: the spokesman for Young America’s Foundation. YAF.
A Brooklyn boy. Guy after my own heart.
Should be the spokesman for all of America.
Robert Spencer, author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Is-lam” and founder of Jihad Watch, spoke on: “The Truth About CA-IR,” at 4 p.m. today at YAF’s national student conference at George Washington University.
Our basic human rights as Americans is now abused daily by politically correct, so called “interpreters” of our Constitution, who allow terrorist enablers a “right” that simply cannot exist in any free society: the right never to be offended.
Just because the thugs, the bullies, the unindicted co-conspirators of terrorism, CA-IR, have been enabled by the hard core Leftys into believing that all laws in all countries must revolve around their petty selves, doesn’t mean that some are not MAN enough to challenge that delusion.
Living in Western countries awash in freedom and liberties that they despise and ultimately cannot fathom nor reconcile with their belief system.
They’re too dang preoccupied with their hyper-easily-offended selves to acknowledge that shaaaria law does not rule here. The good ole Bill of Rights and um…….Freedom of speech does.
The mass killing in the name of Izlam should be more than sufficient to incite justifiable hatred against Muzlims who tacitly support it, with their deafening silence but CA-IR would have us lose sleep and be troubled that our criticism of the killing is what inspires hatred and needs to be silenced.
Well, well, well CA-IR.
Looks like ya might have pushed your luck a tad on this one: threatening to silence and sue Robert Spencer, a brilliant, outspoken thinker of our times, who purely points out the facts about the history of Izlam and its homicidal/suicidal/genocidal unapologetic aggression.
Robert Spencer did speak my friends..and here were the final words in his speech:
“Come and kill me if you want, but I’m not going to submit.”
He received multiple standing ovations.
Spent last Sunday at New York’s 50th Israel Day Parade up Fifth Avenue along with 35,000 Israel and America and freedom lovers!
America lovers all around~!
We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. .
We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. . . . We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem.
By contrast to the haters of course….
Loving,Shiny Happy People all around.
The only thing chicken about Israel is their soup.
Freedom lovers everywhere~!
“The Jews are a peculiar people: Things permitted to other nations are forbidden to the Jews. Other nations drive out thousands, even millions of people, and there is no refugee problem.
Russia did it. Poland and Czechoslovakia did it.Turkey threw out a million Greeks and Algeria a million Frenchmen. Indonesia threw out heaven knows how many Chinese–and no one says a word about refugees.
But in the case of Israel, the displaced Arabs have become eternal refugees. Everyone insists that Israel must take back every single Arab. Arnold Toynbee calls the displacement of the Arabs an atrocity greater than any committed by the Nazis.
Other nations when victorious on the battlefield dictate peace terms.
But when Israel is victorious it must sue for peace.
Everyone expects the Jews to be the only real Christians in this world.”
” Israel was not created in order to disappear- Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and the home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom.”John F. Kennedy:
And needless to say….
Of course the eats were awesome!
Sooo..Who’s joinin’ me next year eh?
Posting will be light the next few days Sweet Friends.
Hang tough. Hugzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz~!
