The Facts - Why have they become obsolete?

Why doesn't anyone want to believe in the facts anymore? Has our America slid into such a La La Land that mendacities are more plausible than hard reality? It's enough to make you cry UNCLE. If we don't take our America back soon, we will suffer the consequences of Nazi Germany. thinkingblue

Q: Does Barack Obama have Kenyan citizenship?

A: No. He held both U.S. and Kenyan citizenship as a child, but lost his Kenyan citizenship automatically on his 21st birthday.

Q: Did a Billy Graham team member say Obama should be defeated "to save America"?

A: No. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association says a widely quoted anti-Obama screed wasn't written by anyone associated with the organization.

Q: Did Obama say we "are no longer a Christian nation"?

A: He said we are no longer "just" a Christian nation, but a nation of many other faiths as well. A chain e-mail drops that key word and thus changes the meaning.

We also have updated our article on a chain e-mail that purports to compare McCain's and Obama's tax plans. We've received many questions about this, so we'll draw it to your
attention:


Q: Would Obama tax my profits if I sell my home? Would he tax my IRA? Would he tax my water?

A: No. A new e-mail being circulated about Obama's tax proposals is almost entirely false.

"Long live freedom!"

Excerpted from The White Rose

The White Rose, was formed by students at the University of Munich in 1941. It is believed that the group was formed after August von Galen, the Archbishop of Munster, spoke out in a sermon against the Nazi practice of euthanasia (the killing of those considered by the Nazis as genetically
unsuitable).

-------

The White Rose group also began painting anti-Nazi slogans on the sides of houses. This included "Down With Hitler", "Hitler Mass Murderer" and "Freedom". They also painted crossed-out swastikas.

Members also began leaving piles of leaflets in public places. On 18th February, Hans Scholl and
Sophie Scholl
began distributing the sixth leaflet produced by the White Rose group. Jakob Schmidt, a member of the Nazi Party, saw them at the University of Munich, throwing leaflets from a window of the third floor into the courtyard below. He immediately told the Gestapo and they were both arrested. They were searched and the police found a handwritten draft of another leaflet. This they matched to a letter in Scholl's flat that had been signed by Christoph Probst.

The three members of the White Rose group appeared before the People's Court judge, Roland
Friesler
, on 20th February. Found guilty of sedition they were executed by guillotine a few hours later. Just before he was executed Hans Scholl shouted out: "Long live freedom!"

Inge Scholl and her parents were also arrested and imprisoned. Over the next few weeks Kurt Huber, Alexander Schmorell, Willi Graf , Jugen Wittenstein and over eighty others suspected of being members of the White Rose group were taken into custody. Huber, Graff and Schmorell were all found guilty of sedition and were executed.

Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl and Christoph Probst in the summer of 1942.
