After Benjamin Netanyahu United Nations Speech on September 24, 2009 my quest for freedom leaders of the Free World continues.
Well, America missed its chance to lead the Free World but instead essentially ignores the Iran Green Revolution and continues to shrink its responsibility to be a leader of freedom and liberty in a Mad, Mad World.
Oh and that whole Dalai Lama thingy:
“President Barack Obama has refused to meet the Dalai Lama in Washington this week in a move to curry favour with the Chinese.
The decision came after China stepped up a campaign urging nations to shun the Tibetan spiritual leader.
It means Mr Obama will become the first president not to welcome the Nobel peace prize winner to the White House since the Dalai Lama began visiting Washington in 1991.
Another Leader of the Free World Emerges:
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) shares the details of his recent trip to Honduras with FOX News' Greta Van Susteren (Oct. 6, 2009).

Honduras Freedom or Favorite Fixations:
DeMint went without Kerry’s blessing, and said afterwards that “we saw a government working hard to follow the rule of law, uphold its constitution, and to protect democracy for the people of Honduras.”
“We are very encouraged by what we saw and we hope to be able to work with our administration to support the upcoming elections,” DeMint said.
Heritage Foundation senior policy analyst Ray Walser said Tuesday that although the elections offer a solution to the three month-old crisis the Obama administration is “fixated” on Zelaya’s return to the presidency.
“Instead of allowing the Honduran people to speak through elections on November 29 and end the crisis, the administration makes Zelaya’s restoration to presidential office its primary objective and the litmus test for ‘a restoration of democracy,’” he wrote on the Heritage blog.
What I Heard in Honduras

Our ambassador is the only person I met there who thinks there was a 'coup.' Let's release the State Department legal analysis.
The man does not live who is more devoted to peace than I am. None who would do more to preserve it.
