I am very pleased when artists and movie stars decide to make a move that challenges the liberal current in Hollywood or in the music arena. Wyclef Jean has inspired millions, and his love for Haiti is immense.
He tried to run for President there, but lost the elections. Mr. Jean is a good man, not someone that loves to seek attention from the paparazzi and is not a junkie.
Here’s his opinion on Sarah Palin:
“I have to tell you this: I am a huge fan of Sarah Palin,” the former Fugee said. “Cause she’s rad. She’s shrewd. She’s cool. Because at the end of the day, I’m for the people, because this is the United States of America…this is what America’s really about. Anyone should have the right to say, ‘Look I can do the job and this is what qualifies me to do the job.’….Now my wife probably will debate and disagree with me.”
Seeming to sense a little bit of disbelief, he qualified his statement.
“I’m not saying she could be the next president, you know, but there’s something about her. Heavy debates in my house. Whenever I say Sarah Palin, people think I’m crazy, but I like her, I do. I can like whoever. This is America, right?”

Governor Palin has the spot of the final speech of the last day of the “India Today Conclave.” The title of her speech: “My Vision Of America.”
The event will also be at the Dinner Gala as a Chief Guest, which is to be held after her speech.

The New York Times put out a news piece aimed at portraying Governor Palin as inaccessible, whisked away and with strict rules to meet a few people.
Nothing further from the truth, according to direct witnesses and accounts of different people at the Ronald Reagan’s ranch. Read below for further information and images from the event:
Governor Palin wrote an op-ed on USA Today, and is really using her claws and calling the Obama administration to use United States’ super-power status (that is, if Obama has the balls to do it) and go after Russia and Iran. Governor Sarah Palin is using the same common-sense that I share: Iran is a threat, therefore it must be taken care of; but keep in mind that there are Iranians that want democracy and freedom, and that women in Iran deserve their freedoms too.
There are ways to deal with both issues and still come out on top; but in my honest opinion, the UAE should advocate a very similar position, if they want a similar result that Palin portrays.
Below is her op-ed, in which the All-American values and strong sense of freedom should be a priority, not only for Iran, but for us as well.
Iran continues to defy the international community in its drive to acquire nuclear weapons. Arab leaders in the region rightly fear a nuclear-armed Iran. We suspected this before, but now we know for sure because of leaked diplomatic cables. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia “frequently exhorted the U.S. to attack Iran to put an end to its nuclear weapons program,” according to these communications. Officials from Jordan said the Iranian nuclear program should be stopped by any means necessary. Officials from the United Arab Emirates and Egypt saw Iran as evil, an “existential threat” and a sponsor of terrorism. If Iran isn’t stopped from obtaining nuclear weapons, it could trigger a regional nuclear arms race in which these countries would seek their own nuclear weapons to protect themselves.
That wouldn’t be the only catastrophic consequence for American interests in the Middle East. Our credibility and reputation would suffer a serious blow if Iran succeeds in producing its own nuclear weapons after we’ve been claiming for years that such an event could not and would not be tolerated. A nuclear-armed and violently anti-American Iran would be an enormous threat to us and to our allies. Israel in particular would face the gravest threat to its existence since its creation. Iran’s leaders have repeatedly called for Israel’s destruction, and Iran already possesses missiles that can reach Israel. Once these missiles are armed with nuclear warheads, nothing could stop the mullahs from launching a second Holocaust. It’s only a matter of time before Iran develops missiles that could reach U.S. territory.
Even without nuclear weapons, Iran has provided arms used to kill American soldiers and Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan. Iran is also the biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world. It has shielded al-Qaeda leaders, including one of Osama bin Laden’s sons. Imagine how much worse it would be for us if this regime acquired nuclear weapons.
President Obama once said a nuclear-armed Iran would be “unacceptable.” Yet, Iran’s nuclear progress still continues unchecked. Russia continues to support Iran’s Bushehr nuclear reactors. It also continues to sell arms to Iran — despite the Obama administration’s much-touted “reset” policy with Russia. The administration trumpets the United Nations sanctions passed earlier this year, but those sanctions are not the “crippling” ones we were promised. Much more can be done, such as banning insurance for shipments to Iran, banning all military sales to Iran, ending all trade credits, banning all financial dealings with Iranian banks, limiting Iran’s access to international capital markets and banking services, closing air space and waters to Iran’s national air and shipping lines, and, especially, ending Iran’s ability to import refined petroleum. These would be truly “crippling” sanctions. They would work if implemented.
Some have said the Israelis should undertake military action on their own if they are convinced the Iranian program is approaching the point of no return. But Iran’s nuclear weapons program is not just Israel’s problem; it is the world’s problem. I agree with the former British prime minister Tony Blair, who said recently that the West must be willing to use force “if necessary” if that is the only alternative.
Standing with the people
But we also need to encourage a positive vision for Iran. Iran is not condemned to live under the totalitarian inheritance of the Ayatollah Khomeini forever. There is an alternative — an Iran where human rights are respected, where women are not subjugated, where terrorist groups are not supported and neighbors are not threatened. A peaceful, democratic Iran should be everyone’s goal. There are many hopeful signs inside Iran that reveal the Iranian people’s desire for this peaceful, democratic future. We must encourage their voices.
When the brave people of Iran take to the streets in defiance of their unelected dictatorship, they must know that we in the free world stand with them. When the women of Iran rise up to demand their rights, they must know that we women of the free world who enjoy the rights won for us by our suffragist foremothers stand with our sisters there. When Iranians demand freedom of religion, freedom of conscience and freedom to simply live their lives as they choose without persecution, we in the free world must stand with them.
We can start by supporting them with diplomacy and things such as radio broadcasting, just as we did with those who suffered under the former Soviet Empire. Most of all, we should support them with confidence in the rightness of the ideals of liberty and justice.
Just as Ronald Reagan once denounced an “evil empire” and looked forward to a time when communism was left on the “ash heap of history,” we should look forward to a future where the twisted ideology and aggressive will to dominate of Khomeini and his successors are consigned to history’s dustbin.
Well, since it was after the fact, I decided to watch the show; I expected more information on the rally and I wanted to see more about it. I was not disappointed; the video of the fly-by Canadian geese was spectacular. That was one wish I had while watching the rally; a fly-by of the Blue Angels, for example. I understand the no-fly zone rule; in a secret but wicked way I wanted a bunch of “rogue” AF pilots to do a fly-by, just like the Canadian geese did. There are some things you want and can’t have, but God finds a way around it.
That, or after all that reading and learning process he “got it” and is spreading the core of the founding fathers’ root: God and country, centered and united to be able to deal with all that is coming. Grasp that faith to get the strength of what is ahead.
He said little miracles will happen after 8-28. Mine is: I will give Glenn Beck a pass. He’s coming around full circle now, and I don’t hold a grudge against him any longer. This comes from a person that can hold grudges for months. So yes, to me it’s a big friggin’ deal!
