Shine over sea and land (Gläns över sjö och strand)



Shine over sea and land, star in the distance,

Born by the Lord’s command for man’s assistance

Bethlehem’s Star whose rays

Lead where our Savior stays.


Shepherds behold the sight

In the midwinter night

Of that deep guiding light

Star shining clear and bright.


Night over Bethlehem, night over Zion;

Over in Western rim sets the Orion.

Shepherds that watch their sheep;

Child in a dreamless sleep –


Wakes with a glorious

Chorus of voices

God’s host victorious

With us rejoices.

Obama mentions himself 63 times eulogizing Sen Daniel Inouye. A Limerick.

President Barack Obama used the funeral for Hawaii senator Daniel Inouye to talk about himself. In the short 1,600 word speech, Obama used the word “my” 21 times, “me” 12 times, and “I” 30 times.

Eulogize Inouye, one can ask: Why?

The praiseworthy words are but I, me and my.

There is none like Barack

On himself he looks back.

Narcissimus Maximus, he is not shy.

An excerpt is to be seen here:

The abduction of Domenic Johansson. A Limerick.

Meet Domenic Johansson, State-napped in Sweden,
where bureaucrat snakes rule the welfare-state’s Eden.
Pompous agents explain:
“To complain is in vain;
The State always knows what is best for all children.”




An appeals court panel in Sweden has imposed the “death penalty” on a homeschooling family, granting the state full custody of their son, who famously was “state-napped” from a jetliner in 2009 as the family prepared to move to India.

The appeals panel reversed a lower court ruling that granted Annie and Christer Johansson custody of their son, Domenic. But if the decision is not reversed again by the nation’ Supreme Court, the Johansson’s will lose their son, according to the Home School Legal Defense Association, which has been working on the case with the Alliance Defending Freedom.

The family was on board a jetliner minutes from departing Sweden for Annie’s home country of India when Domenic was seized in June 2009. The reason authorities initially gave for taking Domenic was that he had been homeschooled.

During the first months following his seizure, the parents were only permitted to visit Domenic once every two weeks. The visits soon became every five weeks, and in 2010, all visitations were cut off, HSLDA said.

“The United States Supreme Court has written that terminating parental rights is the family court equivalent of the death penalty,” HSLDA said.

The Johansson case in Sweden, the group said, “demonstrates what can happen when the family is not respected as an integral unit of society.”

In American courts, HSLDA explained, clear and convincing evidence, the civil equivalent of “beyond a reasonable doubt,” is necessary before parental rights are terminated.

It was last June when a Swedish district court said the parental rights would not be terminated. In a 23-page opinion, the court said it could not ignore the unanimous and extensive testimony of firsthand accounts of friends, family and others that Domenic Johansson was being properly cared for by his parents prior to Swedish authorities seizing him in 2009.

Michael Donnelly, HSLDA’s director for international affairs, called the latest decision “brutal.”

“After [the] district court victory we had hoped the end of this nightmare was approaching. At this point we can only hope that the Swedish Supreme Court will intervene to correct this grave injustice,” he said. “The facts have shown Annie and Christer Johansson to be good parents. It is unconscionable that a court in a democratic country like Sweden could find it is in the child’s interests to remain separated from these parents. The pain, suffering and harm done to this family are incalculable.”

An attorney for the Johansson family reported to HSLDA that the government had appealed the district court ruling continuing their parental rights.

Supporters said the toll of the “state-napping” on the family has been costly.

Ruby Harrold-Claesson, president of the Nordic Committee on Human Rights, called the decision atrocious.

“This is a despicable act,” she told HSLDA. “I don’t know how these judges can have done this. The chief judge wrote a strong dissent that I hope will make an impact on the Swedish Supreme Court. We will appeal this horrible decision.”

She reported Domenic’s mother, Annie, collapsed when the decision was announced.

“How can anyone endure this kind of torture for so long, I don’t know. It’s unbearable to see how the pride of government officials is wrecking the lives of the Johanssons and others like them. These people have broken the law by taking this boy without justification and keeping him for three-and-a-half years. It’s uncivilized.”

She said complaints about the court system’s human rights violations are being filed all over.

“Something has to be done,” she said. “Families are being trampled, and the court systems virtually always side with the social workers against families. It is a terrible situation.”

HSLDA said it would continue to fight on behalf of the family.

WND also has reported on several cases in which children were taken by authorities in Sweden over homeschooling. In one case, a private detective literally abducted back the children and reunited them with their parents, who had moved out of the country.

The conflicts over homeschooling in Sweden are getting as contentious as in Germany, where numerous families have fled their home country instead of facing the crushing fines, jail sentences and even destruction of families.

In a dramatic case involving the Romeike family, a U.S. immigration judge granted political asylum in the U.S. because of the persecution they would face if they returned to Germany. The Obama administration is appealing the ruling, seeking to send the family back.

Donnelly said what is happening in Germany and Sweden needs to be noted in the United States because of the habit officials have of adopting controversial European policies.


Harry Reid blocks vote on Obama’s tax hike proposal. A Limerick.

Obama must think it is time to smoke weed.

McConnell said “vote”, but that old geezer Reid

put Obama’s proposal

in the garbage disposal.

We’ll go over the cliff, it’s Obama’s misdeed.

The connection between Benghazi and Syria. A Limerick.

WW III is at hand, expect fission.

Secret “CIA annex”; its mission:

Arm the “brothers” in Syria!

Susan Rice the Valkyria.

Blame a tape and deceive; her commission.


How many lies have we been told about Benghazi?

There was no demonstration about an anti-Muslim movie trailer.

Benghazi was not a consulate, not even a mission. It was a clandestine CIA operation.

There had been no requests for more security at the Benghazi operation. That would have exposed it to the world. The requests for more security were for the Embassy in Tripoli.

Obama said he made the order to do everything possible to keep the people in Benghazi safe.

Leon Panetta said the military decided not to intervene since they did not know what was going on.

It was too dangerous for the FBI to go in and investigate the murder scene. Really? CNN found the ambassadors personal notes a few days later lying on the floor of the villa. The real explanation is akin to the case of the investigation of the death of Vincent Foster where Hillary Clinton prevented the FBI from doing an investigation under the guise of “National Security.”

Twelve hours after the attack the CIA annex was cleaned, scrubbed and closed down. Nothing was done to the villa since it was just a meeting place. One wonders what was so important that it was worth it not sending backup to the brave defenders that had even put a laser beam on the attacking artillery. You do not put a laser beam on your attackers unless you expect imminent backup. Doing so exposes your own position.

Could it be it was an operation to arm the Muslim Brotherhood and other Jihadist groups, including Al-Qaeda with Libyan arms including chemical weapons to fight Assad in Syria? After all 40 million pounds of armaments was sent from Libya to Turkey after the Libyan uprising.

This would explain why General Petraeus initially went along with the charade that the movie trailer was the culprit. But when he would not let the CIA take the fall for the debacle he had to be destroyed, as well as Ms. Blackwell, his paramour who inadvertently spilled the beans of Iranian Red Crescent workers (spies) that were detained at the annex.

Hillary Clinton promised a grieving mother of one of the killed Navy Seals that the man that made the movie trailer would be prosecuted to the max. He has got his sentence already: One year in jail for violating probation. (One of the conditions of probation was to stay away from the internet).
