CAIR is Full of Shit

I was going to post this Monday, but since AOW has already discussing it, I'll post it now. Being the sneaky bastard that I am, I subscribed to the newsletters of all the pro-Muslim groups in America I could find. It has been an incredibly rich source of inspiration and insight. I've decided to become a Muslim. Just kidding.

It's fascinating to see how they spin the news, what they strongly dislike, and how they promote their cause.

CAIR has taken exception to the massive promotion of the movie, Obsession. Of course. In one of their op-ed columns, Ahmed Rehab (I'm not making this up) tries to make a good case against the movie, but fails miserably. He wrote, "First, it exploits Americans’ unfamiliarity with Islam and Muslims to suggest that deviant groups are somehow representative of most, if not all, Muslims."

And it went downhill from there. The movie doesn't, in fact, suggest that deviant groups are representative of most Muslims. It goes out of its way to suggest otherwise. In one of my few criticisms of the film, I think it goes TOO far out of its way to suggest otherwise. It does, however point out that "deviant" Muslims are following mainstream Islamic theology, which is an entirely different point leading to entirely different conclusions.

Also I thought it was interesting that Mr. Rehab would recognize Americans' unfamiliarity with Islam. It is this unfamiliarity that has made America so vulnerable to the relentless Islamic political encroachment CAIR strives to accelerate.

Rehab also wrote, "while the Muslim world has its share of fanatics, they comprise a tiny fraction of the population and are highly at odds with a mainstream society that aspires to peace and prosperity."

Now of course he might have meant the mainstream non-Muslim society. But even if he was referring to mainstream Muslims, he can say that in all sincerity. He and his audience know that the peace and prosperity they seek can best be achieved by a constant, unrelenting invasion and undermining of the U.S. government (and every other government). When all the world's governments are Islamic, they will have the true peace they aspire to. And when all those Christians and Jews and Hindus and Buddhists who do not want to give up their religion pay their jizya, they will have the prosperity they aspire to as well.

Some of Rehab's readers may know very little of this. If not, it is their own fault they live in ignorance of a faith they profess. They should either learn what they're professing or get the fuck out. But you can bet Rehab knows all about it. His bullshit is unadulterated taqiyya.

An Inspiring Print

I thought this might be a lovely addition to any well-furnished Muslim home. What better way to say to the world, "I am devout, I have faith, I am a religious believer in Allah?"

Who Said This ??

Ran across this speech last night. Who do you think said it? 

  • George Washington?
  • John Adams?
  • Thomas Jefferson?
  • Abraham Lincoln? 

The answer is at the end.

Our form of government does not enter into rivalry with the institutions of others. Our government does not copy our neighbors', but is an example to them. It is true that we are called a democracy, for the administration is in the hands of the many and not of the few. But while there exists equal justice to all and alike in their private disputes, the claim of excellence is also recognized; and when a citizen is in any way distinguished, he is preferred to the public service, not as a matter of privilege, but as the reward of merit. Neither is poverty an obstacle, but a man may benefit his country whatever the obscurity of his condition. There is no exclusiveness in our public life, and in our private business we are not suspicious of one another, nor angry with our neighbor if he does what he likes; we do not put on sour looks at him which, though harmless, are not pleasant. While we are thus unconstrained in our private business, a spirit of reverence pervades our public acts; we are prevented from doing wrong by respect for the authorities and for the laws, having a particular regard to those which are ordained for the protection of the injured as well as those unwritten laws which bring upon the transgressor of them the reprobation of the general sentiment.

And we have not forgotten to provide for our weary spirits many relaxations from toil; we have regular games and sacrifices throughout the year; our homes are beautiful and elegant; and the delight which we daily feel in all these things helps to banish sorrow. Because of the greatness of our city the fruits of the whole earth flow in upon us; so that we enjoy the goods of other countries as freely as our own.

Then, again, our military training is in many respects superior to that of our adversaries. Our city is thrown open to the world, though and we never expel a foreigner and prevent him from seeing or learning anything of which the secret if revealed to an enemy might profit him. We rely not upon management or trickery, but upon our own hearts and hands. And in the matter of education, whereas they from early youth are always undergoing laborious exercises which are to make them brave, we live at ease, and yet are equally ready to face the perils which they face. Our enemies have never yet felt our united strength, the care of a navy divides our attention, and on land we are obliged to send our own citizens everywhere. But they, if they meet and defeat a part of our army, are as proud as if they had routed us all, and when defeated they pretend to have been vanquished by us all.

If then we prefer to meet danger with a light heart but without laborious training, and with a courage which is gained by habit and not enforced by law, are we not greatly the better for it? Since we do not anticipate the pain, although, when the hour comes, we can be as brave as those who never allow themselves to rest; thus our city is equally admirable in peace and in war. For we are lovers of the beautiful in our tastes and our strength lies, in our opinion, not in deliberation and discussion, but that knowledge which is gained by discussion preparatory to action. For we have a peculiar power of thinking before we act, and of acting, too, whereas other men are courageous from ignorance but hesitate upon reflection. And they are surely to be esteemed the bravest spirits who, having the clearest sense both of the pains and pleasures of life, do not on that account shrink from danger. In doing good, again, we are unlike others; we make our friends by conferring, not by receiving favors. Now he who confers a favor is the firmer friend, because he would rather by kindness keep alive the memory of an obligation; but the recipient is colder in his feelings, because he knows that in requiting another's generosity he will not be winning gratitude but only paying a debt. We alone do good to our neighbors not upon a calculation of interest, but in the confidence of freedom and in a frank and fearless spirit.

This is from a speech delivered by the brilliant and charismatic politician and general, Pericles during the Peloponnesian War, and who perished a little bit later in the horrifying plague that decimated Athens the next year.

EU Counterterrorism Coordinator: Hezbollah is not on terror list


QUEEN ~ Death on Two Legs



The European Union's counterterrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerckhove says Lebanon's Hezbollah is not on the list of terror groups. Gilles de Kerckhove said the EU would not put Hezbollah on the list of terror groups because several member states, including France, oppose such a move.

The EU official made the comment in a seminar on 'Terrorism and Europe' organized at the European Parliament in Brussels.
Some of the members of the European Union's Parliament launched a campaign this week to have Hezbollah listed as a terrorist organization by the 27-member bloc. A coalition of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) circulated a "written declaration" on Tuesday seeking to have Hezbollah added to the EU terror list.

De Kerckhove asserted that Hezbollah is represented in the government of Lebanon and it has representatives in Parliament and holds one seat in the Cabinet. "It plays a role on the Lebanese political scene and several countries think that this could bring them closer to the democratic process," he added.

Currently, among the 27 EU member states, only the UK and Netherlands are in favor of adding Hezbollah to the EU list of terror which would freeze the group's Europe-held financial assets. De Kerckhove said that he believes the main threat "is coming from Al-Qaeda" and not from Hezbollah. The group has representatives in Parliament and holds one seat in the Cabinet. It also participates in municipal government and undertakes many social development projects.

The group was responsible for much of the reconstruction work that took place in the South, Beirut's southern suburbs and the Bekaa Valley after the 33-day July war. Hezbollah's Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah said Tuesday at a gathering in Beirut, the resistance movement's power is at Lebanon's service so that it can withstand aggressions by enemies.

"Resistance feels a sense of duty towards the Lebanon strength; this sheer sense of duty has enabled the movement to achieve great victories against those who intend to harm the Lebanon strength"

"I would rather live in the dark ages under the Taleban than be subservient to any foreign power."



Pakistan Has Nukes Up It's Ass -

Pakistan Has Insane Muslim Radicals Coming Out Of It's Ears

Pakistan May Become
The Detonation Center of
The First Worldwide Suicide Bombing

From the BBC:


"I would rather live in the dark ages under the Taleban than be subservient to any foreign power."

The unexpected comment comes from an urbane, sophisticated and, I had always thought, Westernised Pashtun lawyer.

He wears none of the badges of Islamic piety - a beard, for example - and he normally sports a navy blazer not the local shalwar kameez.

He is a former minister with the Pakistan People's Party, the most liberal in Pakistan.


Rejecting the West

The word liberal in the Pakistani context means modern, educated, secular rather than theocratic and, up until now at least, pro-Western.

"You can't mean it," I protested. "Do you know what the Taleban were like in Afghanistan when they ran it, with compulsory prayers five times a day, do you want that?"

"Look," he said. "I can deal with Taleban, they are my own people. They come from here. I know them.


"I will be able to get around them.
But the Americans never. No way."

McCain still has not made the 'outside reformer' case to the undecided

The past week's sick roller coaster for those whose business is profit from the grease of REAL CREATION saw confusion by both nominees.

First McCain said the fundamentals were strong. Well if no one can borrow money there are no fundamentals even though for a while, when we need things we have to pay people and our employers still pay us, but eventually the larger failure insinuates itself.

Obama made things worse by crying 'crisis' in a self fulfilling scarefest.

By the end of the week McCain wanted the SEC chief fired (he is right), and Obama insisted that people on Main Street get the same consideration as Wall Street (of course he is right, but if that can be achieved by EITHER a repub or dem, pinch me, will you? It sure sounds good on TV, though.)

Neither helped define himself. Both can add the millions made by their advisers in the pursuit of that same greed, some from the same companies, that created the incredible near disaster of this past week.

This race is still controlled by the 5% of undecideds who look as if they are changing their minds every 7-10 days or so.

Obama certainly represents change, but I contend he will change to the SAME DEMOCRATIC MANTRA-ZONE of not Bill Clinton, but to a prior busted flush of social theories developed in reaction to 1972. Just look at Europe.

John McCain for all that he is does not fit CONSERVATIVE has completely failed to establish why he fails to fit. He is probably a republican for 2 reasons. First, he more numerously (by a very few) fits republican ideas, second and more important, THE MAN in local politics when he went into office was one Barry Goldwater.

But McCain has not made the case, except to shout REFORM, why he just doesn't fit with most 'conservative' Republicans, and more importantly, explained why this same case also means virtually all the claims made against WHO HE IS by Obama are thus TOTALLY ABSURD.

Just over a month to go, and 3 debates. Plenty of time to score.

But right now both campaigns are mired in claims that the other side are bigger liars than they are.

However the major issues remain.

This economy and the life of its workers and managers is for the most part at the mercy of the price of oil. McCain retains a significant reality based advantage.

International challenges are PROLIFERATING as old ones raise their heads along with the ones which rose to prominence on 9/11. Who you gonna call? Alinsky or the fighter pilot?

Business remains fragile as long as we import mass amounts of oil, and this will remain the case for a while (assuming we move our asses on energy) ..Obama still ernestly believes tariff and protection will actually PROTECT american workers..that in itself may portent world wide disaster.

Increased taxes on business...well..has that EVER worked? Instead offer tax credits to achieve what you need. Anyone doing that? Want more taxes? Then figure a plan to allow the pie to grow, and get more taxes correlative to that achievement. Being "neighborly" and "patriotic" are simply synonyms, in this case, for NO IDEAS and THEFT FOR LACK OF SAME.

And McCain still retains the unrecognized bona fides as agent of angst for the established way of doing things, while Obama will simply flip a switch to the socially engineered correct way

But no matter what you think, isn't it nice that Lehman Bros took with them in their death throes $300,000,000 of Mr. Chavez's Venezuelan cash on monday? One third of a billion.
ZAP.

Anyone wondering if that's why the govt let them go?

France On The Verge Of Banning Scientology

Could Islam Be Far Behind?


From ABC News:



The Church of Scientology faces trial on deletion fraud charges in Paris, with
the possibility that the organization, which claims around 5,000 active members
in France in addition to a bevy of Hollywood celebrities such as Tom Cruise,
could be banned in France if it loses.

While it enjoys an active
presence in the U.S. -- it has been recognized as a religious organization by
the I.R.S. since 1993 -- Scientology has faced strong opposition from French
authorities.

France has refused to acknowledge Scientology as a
religion, and Miviludes, the French government agency in charge of protecting
its citizens from sectarian manipulations, has warned French citizens against
participating.

"Scientology is a dangerous movement," Milivudes
president Jean-Michel Roulet told ABCNews.com. "It puts pressure on its victims,
it tries to intimidate them and blackmails them."



Infidel Bloggers Alliance says:

Islam is a Racketeering Organization.

The Government of the United States of America Will Eventually Bring Islamic Clerics Up Violation of The RICO Act.


What is the RICO Act?

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.


Under RICO, a person who is a member of an enterprise that has committed any two of 35 crimes—27 federal crimes and 8 state crimes—within a 10-year period can be charged with racketeering. Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $25,000 and/or sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of "racketeering activity." RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of such an enterprise to file a civil suit; if successful, the individual can collect treble damages.

When the U.S. Attorney decides to indict someone under RICO, he or she has the option of seeking a pre-trial restraining order or injunction to temporarily seize a defendant's assets and prevent the transfer of potentially forfeitable property, as well as require the defendant to put up a performance bond. This provision was placed in the law because the owners of Mafia-related shell corporations often absconded with the assets. An injunction and/or performance bond ensures that there is something to seize in the event of a guilty verdict.

In many cases, the threat of a RICO indictment can force defendants to plead guilty to lesser charges, in part because the seizure of assets would make it difficult to pay a defense attorney.

Despite its harsh provisions, a RICO-related charge is considered easy to prove in court, as it focuses on patterns of behavior as opposed to criminal acts.[2]

There is also a provision for private parties to sue. A "person damaged in his business or property" can sue one or more "racketeers." The plaintiff must prove the existence of a "criminal enterprise." The defendant(s) are not the enterprise; in other words, the defendant(s) and the enterprise are not one and the same. There must be one of four specified relationships between the defendant(s) and the enterprise. A civil RICO action, like many lawsuits based on federal law, can be filed in state or federal court. [1]

Both the federal and civil components allow for the recovery of treble damages (damages in triple the amount of actual/compensatory damages).

Although its primary intent was to deal with organized crime, Blakey said that Congress never intended it to merely apply to the Mob. He once told Time, "We don't want one set of rules for people whose collars are blue or whose names end in vowels, and another set for those whose collars are white and have Ivy League diplomas."[2]

RICO offenses

Under the law, racketeering activity means:

Any violation of state statutes against gambling, murder, kidnapping, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical (as defined in the Controlled Substances Act);
Any act of
bribery, counterfeiting, theft, embezzlement, fraud, dealing in obscene matter, obstruction of justice, slavery, racketeering, gambling, money laundering,

--- commission of murder-for-hire (FATWA) ---

, and several other offenses covered under the Federal criminal code (Title 18);
Embezzlement of
union funds;
Bankruptcy or securities fraud;
Drug trafficking;
Money laundering and related offenses;
Bringing in, aiding or assisting
aliens in illegally entering the country (if the action was for financial gain);
Acts of
terrorism.

Pattern of racketeering activity requires at least two acts of racketeering activity, one of which occurred after the effective date of this chapter and the last of which occurred within ten years (excluding any period of imprisonment) after the commission of a prior act of racketeering activity. The U.S. Supreme Court has instructed federal courts to follow the continuity plus relationship test in order to determine whether the facts of a specific case give rise to an established pattern. Predicate acts are related if they "have the same or similar purposes, results, participants, victims, or methods of commission, or otherwise are interrelated by distinguishing characteristics and are not isolated events." H.J. Inc. v. Northwestern Bell Telephone Co. Continuity is both a closed and open ended concept, referring to either a closed period of conduct, or to past conduct that by its nature projects into the future with a threat of repetition.

Where RICO laws might be applied

Although some of the RICO predicate acts are extortion and blackmail, one of the most successful applications of the RICO laws has been the ability to indict or sanction individuals for their behavior and actions committed against witnesses and victims in alleged retaliation or retribution for cooperating with law enforcement or intelligence agencies.

Violations of the RICO laws can be alleged in cases where civil lawsuits or criminal charges are brought against individuals or corporations in retaliation for said individuals or corporations working with law enforcement, or against individuals or corporations who have sued or filed criminal charges against a defendant.

Anti-SLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) laws can be applied in an attempt to curb alleged abuses of the legal system by individuals or corporations who utilize the courts as a weapon to retaliate against whistle blowers, victims, or to silence another's speech. RICO could be alleged if it can be shown that lawyers and/or their clients conspired and collaborated to concoct fictitious legal complaints solely in retribution and retaliation for themselves having been brought before the courts.

Working Against the Infidel Bloggers Alliance

I got the link to the following video through the Muslim Public Affairs Council. It is a ten-minute, professional propaganda film that would convince anybody who doesn't know about taqiyya or basic principles of Islam that everybody who writes for the IBA is an Islamophobic bigot.

I thought it was interesting when they showed a clip of a talk-show host asking a Muslim congressman if he was a true patriot. And then they showed a calm, sensible-looking Muslim woman who said, it was clearly a "racist and xenophobic question."

I thought, "What?" Wasn't that a question informed by knowledge of basic Islamic principles? What does that have to do with race? Nothing. What does it have to do with irrational fears of outsiders? Nothing. It has to do with doctrine and beliefs, and that is a completely legitimate thing to grill anyone on, especially someone who has some influence on national policy. Here's the video:



We have a right to ask any Muslim, or anyone at all, what they believe in, and we should initially suspect Muslims (sorry, Muslims, but it's your religion you know what's in those books, you know about taqiyya and jihad and Muhammad's verse of the sword).

Any Muslim who is truly a patriot would understand because they'd know enough about their own holy books to know there is definitely something for non-Muslims to fear from a devout Muslim, unless they prove themselves beyond doubt.

I would assume that an informed Muslim who tries to make you feel bad for questioning their patriotism has something to hide. That's the safe assumption. It's really too bad, but unless you are trying to gain a political concession or are blindly multicultural, you can't blame me.

Great Moments In The History Of Pacifism: Gandhi's Love Letters to Hitler




From Front Page Magazine:


On September 25, five American religious organizations plan to host a Ramadan dinner for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during his upcoming visit to the United States. These include the Mennonite Central Committee, the Quakers, the World Council of Churches, and Religions for Peace. How is it that these Christian “peace” organizations are willing to break bread with a declared warmonger and Holocaust denier? An answer lies in the troubling history of these organizations – a history that includes a shameful alliance with Nazi Germany during World War II.

The pacifist-Nazi axis dates to the 1930s. None other than the worldwide spokesman for non-violence, Mahatma Gandhi, wrote letters to Adolph Hitler that were deferential in their tone and abhorrent in their implications. A 1939 letter was apologetically described by Gandhi as a “mere impertinence” and included the following signoff: “I anticipate your forgiveness, if I have erred in writing to you. I remain, Your sincere friend, Sd. M. MK Gandhi.” In a letter dated December 24, 1940, Gandhi assured Hitler that he had no doubt of “your bravery or devotion to your fatherland.”

Zionist appeals for Gandhi to support a national home for the Jewish people, meanwhile, fell on deaf ears, as he insisted that “Palestine belongs to the Arabs.” Not only did Gandhi reject the cause of a Jewish state but he effectively echoed Nazi propaganda, as with his warning that “this cry for the national home affords a colorable justification for the German expulsion of the Jews.”

Even more supportive of Hitler were the Mennonites. In a letter dated September 10, 1933, the Conference of East and West Prussian Mennonites from the German city-state of Danzig wrote to the Fuhrer to express its “deep gratitude for the powerful revival that God has given our nation through your energy” and wished Hitler a “joyful cooperation in the up building of our Fatherland through the power of the Gospel.”

If its enthusiasm for hosting Ahmadinejad is any guide, the Mennonite Church has learned little from this dark chapter in its past. On the contrary, the church’s alliance with the Iranian leader is an extension of its hard-line anti-Israel politics, which find expression in its funding of books advocating the so-called “right-of-return” for Palestinian Arabs – a policy that, if implemented, would mean the destruction of Israel.

One finds a similar antagonism for the Jewish State in the activism of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), the “peace” arm of the Quakers. As an example of what it calls “Quaker values in action,” the AFSC includes its campaigns to “challenge” American support for Israel. A supporter of the PLO, the AFSC not only backs radical anti-Israel groups like Zochrot but opposes Israel’s attempts to defend itself against Palestinian terrorism. That the Quakers are now willing to sit down to dinner with the man who has openly called for Israel to be wiped off the global map should not be entirely surprising.

By any reasonable standard, self-styled peace activists might be expected to condemn leaders who support terrorism and who unashamedly seek the destruction of other nations. But just as advocates of non-violence found a way to accommodate the genocidal designs of Adolph Hitler, so they have been willing to make peace with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. And just as Gandhi never expressed remorse for his “dear friend” letters to Hitler, its unlikely that these supposed believers in non-violence will break a dinner date with his Iranian heir.

Storm Track Intimidation: Beatlemania Strikes Islamists

Don’t think Paul McCarthy ever foresaw this kind of Beatlemania. 

SIR Paul McCartney has been threatened that he will be the target of suicide bombers unless he abandons plans to play his first concert in Israel

Self-styled preacher of hate Omar Bakri claimed the former Beatle’s decision to take part in the Jewish state’s 60th anniversary celebrations had made him an enemy of all Muslims. 

Sources said Sir Paul was shocked but refused to be intimidated.

That’s one Brit with some lion size balls!

Financial Terrorism: SEC Bans "Short-Selling" Of Stocks

Is our current financial meltdown in part the result of an attempt, by people outside the United States, "to take down America".




Cramer on short sellers
by burghnews



From the Associated Press:


WASHINGTON - The Securities and Exchange Commission took the dramatic step early Friday of temporarily banning the routine practice of betting against company stocks.

The move, announced on the agency's Web site, may well be unprecedented and a reflection of regulators' concern about the widening scope of the financial crisis as entreaties come from all quarters to stem a swarm of short-selling.

In the announcement, the commission said it was acting in concert with the U.K. Financial Services Authority in taking emergency action to "prohibit short selling in financial companies" to protect the integrity of the securities market and boost investor confidence.

"The commission is committed to using every weapon in its arsenal to combat market manipulation that threatens investors and capital markets," SEC chairman Christopher Cox said in a statement. "The emergency order temporarily banning short-selling of financial stocks will restore equilibrium to markets."


The California Public Employees' Retirement System, the nation's largest pension fund, said that starting Thursday it is no longer lending out shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley, joining a growing number of public pension funds that are attempting to curb short-selling of two investment banks' stocks.


Financial Jihad.

Will some good come out of this crisis? Will this crisis make our public officials aware that "Islamofascists" will attempt to use more than planes to bring down the structural architecture of America?

They Push and They Push and They Push

One way to wage jihad is to blow stuff up. Another way is to constantly push for a political concession to Islam. Here's a good one: Some Muslims in Norway are pushing for a restriction on alcohol because it makes Muslims feel uncomfortable sometimes when people around them are drinking.

"Muslims want to have alcohol free days in discos. There should be some days when people can go to restaurants and discos where there's a total ban on alcohol," says one of the Muslims pushing for political reform.

So far, Hege Storhaug of Human Rights Service rejects such a proposal. "All the time they have special rules," says Storhaug, "and we reject special requirements. We get a split-up society and Islam gets more presence in the public sphere. People force religious opinions on others. In the most extreme consequence it leads to the Islamization of society." I like this woman.

"All the time it's Muslims who come with special requirements," she says. "We never hear a peep from Catholics, Jews, Hindus etc."

This concession didn't happen. Will it stop them? No. They will keep pushing. The only answer is no more concessions to Islam.

A Special Ramadan Day

"Today is 17th Ramadan - a day which marks the anniversary of the Battle of Badr," I just read on the Muslim Public Affairs Committee website. And this holds special meaning for Muslims. Muhammad was persecuted by his enemies. Poor ol' Mo. Of course it had nothing to do with his constant abuse of his enemies and his raiding their caravans and killing their people. He was unfairly persecuted and of course needed to "defend Islam" (and keep the booty).

The article asks, "What lessons can Muslims draw from this event?" Because, it says, poor ol' Muslims are persecuted and abused by their enemies today, so history is mysteriously repeating itself. Of course it has nothing to do with their constant bombing of non-Muslims everywhere, or their constant push to squeeze more concessions from the non-Muslims, or their overt purpose of subverting democratic governments. They are unfairly persecuted and must, of course, "defend Islam."

Such a meaningful and important lesson to ponder while you're fasting, eh?

What Would You Propose?

I came across another list of possible solutions to the relentless Islamic political encroachment. This is an answer to the question, "So what do you think CAN be done about all this besides moral grandstanding and warning about 'our failure to act?'" This one seems very reasonable, and all of these proposals are attainable and would be effective. This list is from a longer article by Dr. Babu Suseelan, Pathways to Jihadi Terrorism. Here's his list:

1. Ban or reform all Islamic madrasas.

2. Deny permission to construct mosques.

3. Consider limiting immigrants from Islamic countries to free countries.

4. Closely monitor students studying in free countries from Islamic nations.

5. Stop the flow of funds from Saudi Arabia to American Islamic schools.

6. Deny visas to Muslim Imams from India, Pakistan and the Middle East.

7. Establish radio and television stations in and around Islamic nations.

8. Use mind manipulation techniques to denounce evil practices of Jihadis.

9. Stop immediately the conversion of correctional populations into Muslims. This is a serious consideration. The U.S. has 2.5 million offenders in federal correctional institutions, state prisons and local jails. 95% percent of them will return to our communities. Converted Muslims with criminal proclivities are a potential danger. They could work as sleeper-agents in our communities. Most of the prisons employ Imams and 95% percent of them are from Pakistan, India, Iran, and from the Middle East.

Number one would be difficult to do, but I think it is perhaps the most important. Number 8 refers to psychological warfare using mainstream media to produce shame and guilt.

All of these could help answer the question, "Okay, then, what do you think should be done about it?" What are you trying to accomplish? How do you propose accomplishing it?

I would add, of course, applying sedition laws and massive educational programs to non-Muslims about Islam.

David Warren says dried up Palin hating foaming hag Mallick is typical of Canadian Media

Get it...
I assume John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential partner in a fit of pique because the Republican money men refused to let him have the stuffed male shirt he really wanted......

She added nothing to the ticket that the Republicans didn't already have sewn up, the white trash vote,

the demographic
that sullies America's name
inside and outside its borders

Thumbnail image for rockwell_right_to_know.jpg
yet has such a curious appeal for the right.


It's possible that Republican men, sexual inadequates that they are, really believe that women will vote for a woman just because she's a woman. They're unfamiliar with our true natures. Do they think vaginas call out to each other in the jungle night?.........
But do they not know that women have been trained to resent other women and that they only learn to suppress this by constantly berating themselves and reading columns like this one? I'm a feminist who understands that women can nurse terrible and delicate woman hatred.
Palin has a toned-down version of the porn actress look favoured by this decade's woman, the overtreated hair, puffy lips and permanently alarmed expression. Bristol has what is known in Britain as the look of the teen mum, the "pramface." Husband Todd looks like a roughneck; Track, heading off to Iraq, appears terrified. They claim to be family obsessed while being studiously terrible at parenting. What normal father would want Levi "I'm a fuckin' redneck" Johnson prodding his daughter?
Palin has it all, along with being vicious and profoundly dishonest. Just hours after her first convention speech, the Associated Press did a good fast listing of her untruths and I won't dwell on them.
The conventioneers are nothing like the rich men who run the party, and that's the mystery of the hick vote. They'd be much better served by the Democrats. I know Thomas Frank answered this in What's the Matter with Kansas?; I know that red states vote Republican on social issues to give themselves the only self-esteem available to their broken, economically abused existence.
Read this incredible witch's paranoid, elitist rant about how completely backwoods stupid and ignorant we are.

Hey, SWEETIE, ...and the horse you rode in on, eh? Maybe we'll have Cindy buy the Molson Brewery and fill it with our illegal aliens to give you something to write about, eh? Or maybe we can spare Trig the terrified hillbilly to 'prod' some relatives, eh?

If David Warren is correct about his industry's internal opinions, if this is the attitude of what passes for those who think of themselves as elite, and informed, then Canada should simply be BLOCKED and/or put on IGNORE.

Perhaps if the world economy tanks and americans stop spending they will have a far more sanguine attitude about us hicks and white trash, EH?

The Feisty Obama? Still factually incorrect on the economy AND McCain




An ad by Democrat Obama sneered: "How can John McCain fix our economy if he doesn't understand it's broken?"




January 2006:
Sen. John McCain [R-AZ]:
"Mr. President, this week Fannie Mae's regulator reported that the company's quarterly reports of profit growth over the past few years were "illusions deliberately and systematically created" by the company's senior management, which resulted in a $10.6 billion accounting scandal.

The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight's report goes on to say that Fannie Mae employees deliberately and intentionally manipulated financial reports to hit earnings targets in order to trigger bonuses for senior executives. In the case of Franklin Raines, Fannie Mae's former chief executive officer, OFHEO's report shows that over half of Mr. Raines' compensation for the 6 years through 2003 was directly tied to meeting earnings targets. The report of financial misconduct at Fannie Mae echoes the deeply troubling $5 billion profit restatement at Freddie Mac.
The OFHEO report also states that Fannie Mae used its political power to lobby Congress in an effort to interfere with the regulator's examination of the company's accounting problems. This report comes some weeks after Freddie Mac paid a record $3.8 million fine in a settlement with the Federal Election Commission and restated lobbying disclosure reports from 2004 to 2005. These are entities that have demonstrated over and over again that they are deeply in need of reform.

For years I have been concerned about the regulatory structure that governs Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac--known as Government-sponsored entities or GSEs--and the sheer magnitude of these companies and the role they play in the housing market. OFHEO's report this week does nothing to ease these concerns. In fact, the report does quite the contrary. OFHEO's report solidifies my view that the GSEs need to be reformed without delay.
I join as a cosponsor of the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, S. 190, to underscore my support for quick passage of GSE regulatory reform legislation. If Congress does not act, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system, and the economy as a whole.

I urge my colleagues to support swift action on this GSE reform legislation."

Voted DOWN by the democratic congress?
YES
Meanwhile...

You look at Obama's economic advisers, the guys he has counted on from day one and who have raised him a ton -- and I mean a ton -- of money: Franklin Raines and Jim Johnson, both of them are waist to neck deep in the mortgage debacle."

Both Raines and Johnson have served as CEO of Fannie Mae, with Raines taking over from Johnson. Both are key political and economic advisers to Obama.

"How can Obama go out with a straight face and saw it was Republicans who made this mess, when it is his key advisers who ran the agencies that made the big mess what it is?" says a Democrat House member who supported Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. "It's his people who are responsible for what may well be the single largest government bailout in history. And every single one of them made millions off the collapse that are lining Obama's campaign coffers. If the McCain campaign lets this one go, they deserve to lose."

SEN. OBAMA YOU TALK A LOT, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

STEVE SCHMIDT CAN YOU HEAR US?

There Is a God and It’s Not Allah

What normally happens in the Islamic world when a Muslim accuses another Muslim of some crime against Islam, the accuser can leave with a smile on his face in the satisfaction that he has served Allah. 

To those who don’t buy into the primitive religion of Islam, this is seen as an injustice to the accused because the action does not fit the so-called crime. But in this case REAL justice has prevailed.

Anti-Dhimmitude In Greeley, Colorado

The JBS Swift Company gave in to Moslems' demands for Ramadan.

The next day, other workers at the facility aren't taking kindly to the company's dhimmitude:
...[A]ll the other workers of all cultures and nationalities have walked out in protest, just as they had in Greeley, CO nearly two weeks ago.
A compromise reached to accommodate prayer for about 500 Somalian meatpacking plant workers in Grand Island led to a counter protest of even more workers at the JBS Swift & Co. plant Wednesday.

Workers including Caucasians, Hispanics, Vietnamese, and African-Americans walked out after clocking in on the B shift shortly after 3 p.m. [A commenter to this news story says that the Sudanese were not with the Somalis, but with this group of counter-demonstrators]

The objection — a change in the break schedule that leaves B shift workers shorted of hours Monday through Friday and forces them to work Saturday to earn at least 40 hours of pay.

“The Somalians say they can only work three hours after sunset, so we’re supposed to work 7.3 hours a day Monday through Friday,” said Naomi Jakubowski. “We’re supposed to come in and make up the time on Saturday or be shorted at just 36 hours.”

“I don’t want to sacrifice my Saturdays with my kids — and I can’t raise ‘em on 36 hours of pay,” she said. “I’ve got rent, food and diapers to buy.”

Obama...the American people are a decent people. BUT

If you don't read the blogs at NRO, add them to the daily list. Right between The Nation and Counterpunch

Obama's fun speech...

STALIN_WITH_KIDS_FLOWERS_correct.jpg

Obama -"The one thing that I want to insist on is that, as I travel around the country, the American people are a decent people. Now they get confused sometimes. You know, they listen to the wrong talk radio shows or watch the wrong TV networks, um, but they're, they're basically decent, they're basically sound."
And it's not even taken out of context.
Color me indecent and unsound.
I must need correction

Don't be stupid
Be a Smarty
Come on
Join Obama's Party

Now where have I heard that before?
Hey Steven Schmidt, where are you?

The Obama Tactic

One of Bill Clinton's most effective and well executed political moves was to smear his Thumbnail image for obama_orwell.jpgenemies by claiming they were smearing him, and making it stick by having every single subordinate execute the same phrases over and over 24x7 into the microphones and into the cameras for days of news cycles.

We are now seeing, from Barack Obama's campaign something very different.

They are extracting any phrase, removing it from it's surrounding and giving it new meaning which THEY wish to use for naked fear mongering.
Among others:
"The 100 year war"
"Fundamentally sound"
And now, the Rush Limbaugh race baiting quotes, used against a McCain who LOST VOTES upholding the benefits of the illegal immigrants whose legal (we hope) voting connections the democrats want.

Obama's people are one step away from pulling out one or two word phrases and stringing them together (I can do it right here with some really cool sound editors) in a set of FAKE BUT ACCURATE (in their minds) attacks, and having their justification all ready to go, the way they did with their truly pathetic and comedic excuses after it came out Sen McCain physically CANNOT type due to his war service.

We have the in the tank media and others all warning that if Obama loses it's racism and there is ALREADY a race war going on all the while complaining about McCain fearmongering.

I am no blushing rose about elections. I have always believed that as our substitue for coups, revolutions, and riots, we should expect they would all degenerate to the lowest level just above backlash and outright lies.

JUST ABOVE. The phrases are accurate, but the messages concocted in the Obamanoid Ministry of Truth are complete fabrications. Cue Joseph Welch (6:15 in)

Obama's team has reached that point early.

We await McCain's response quoting Obama's accurately extracted words describing how much he holds Americans in contempt

Fair is Fair.

And by the way, how are either of these guys going to prevent all these merged banks, insurance companies, and any other damn business from getting so large, and taking such chances that the effect of their failure would be so catastrophic that we have to become SOCIALISTS to save the american and world economies? I mean stuff like this is why we are voting, right?

Working with sharia

There’s a lot happening behind the scenes – but you probably already knew that – to ensure that foreign laws are enshrined into our way of life here in the UK, and no doubt elsewhere in the Western world, just to comply with people’s superstitions.

If you demanded a change in your workplace practices to accommodate the fact that you like to spin round seven times widdershins in a chalked pentagram while wearing a chicken suit and bellowing, “I am the master of the universe, so you can all fuck off!” five times a day from the middle of the reception area, your bosses might raise an eyebrow.

“Ah, but, it’s my religion,” you’d protest.

“Oh, all right, then,” they’d say.

Or not.

But, then, you never know these days in politically correct Britain, which bends over backwards to accommodate the ever-increasing demands of Muslims (others, too, but it’s Muslims who seem to do the most demanding and moaning and for whom most changes are made).

I came across a piece in a journal that doesn’t often come my way, Personnel Today. It examines how changes in the workplace are needed to accommodate Islamic beliefs, even changing bonus schemes and pension plans if they don’t comply with sharia law – instead of simply telling them, “You can take it or leave it.”

In the article, Georgina Fuller talks of a law firm who give seminars on sharia (there’s money in it for them, of course), “as it is an increasing concern for organisations”. It then quotes a representative of the firm, Paul Griffin, as saying, “We’re helping more businesses and advising them on how far they should go in complying with Shariah law in the UK.”

Griffin goes on, “If, for example, you offer a discretionary bonus scheme, you can’t earn or charge interest under Shariah. This can make finance a tricky area for firms to manage. Employers have also got to be aware of loans and share options as Muslim employees can’t be owed something in financial terms.”

How much does it cost the firm to do all the twiddling of financial knobs to be compliant with superstition? Does this affect the amount other employees, who don’t feel they have to comply with some religious mumbo-jumbo, get in their bonuses? No doubt the knob twiddling won’t be done for free.

See more on this article, with a couple of interesting links, here at Pink Triangle, including talk of demands for prayer rooms and time off to pray.

Jihad In America: Eight Charged With Exporting Weapons Materials To Iran

From the Associated Press:


MIAMI - Eight people and eight corporations have been charged with illegally shipping to Iran electronic parts that could be used in weapons, including microchips that have been found in improvised explosive devices in Iraq, federal officials said Wednesday.

The defendants, all of whom live outside the U.S., are charged with buying the goods in the United States and then funneling them to Iran through a third country. The defendants lied about the items' ultimate destination and use, officials said.

The items being shipped included global positioning systems as well as other technology that could be used for civilian purposes but also has military applications, such as computer memory, speech recognition technology and timers. Thousands of parts were shipped.

One type of microchip has been found in the triggering systems of IEDs in Iraq. More than 12,000 of part were ordered.


It's almost as if we are at war, and people within our country are trying to kill us.

Film: The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision For America

The trailer is HERE.

From the film's web site:
The Third Jihad focuses on an FBI-discovered secret document—the manifesto of the American Muslim Brotherhood. It describes the 'grand jihad' goal of destroying Western civilization from within by infiltrating and dominating North America.

The film reveals the agenda of the radical Muslim leaders in America and provides viewers with an impressively crafted look at the immediate dangers posed.

The Third Jihad © 2008 Clarion Fund. All rights reserved.
Additional information at the above link.

Note the connection with THIS (Keep an eye out for your free copy!), THIS, and THIS.

My preference is the completely politically-incorrect film Islam: What the West Needs to Know (available at Amazon and at YouTube). But Obsession: Radical Islam's War against the West and The Third Jihad are good places to start for the uninitiated.

Obama - govt can get you better pay, better credit, cheaper prices, better health insurance AND $1000

Is that all, you can do more, come on...I mean the govt can do even more for me, right?

Listen, if you want to buy my vote, just make it out for $25,000.

What a farce.
NO SPECIFICS, no time for a single specific despite a 2 minute buy.

He couldn't even prioritize ONE FACET at what he terms a critical time to demonstrate how it would make things better.

Did you also know he was going to 'crack down on lobbyists'? He has such a long record of doing so.

Don't do me any favors, just stay out my way, okay?

OBAMA AND BIDEN ARE LOSING BECAUSE THEY'RE THE VISITING TEAM: OBAMA REFERS TO "AMERICANS" IN THE THIRD PERSON PLURAL

From Reliapundit at the Astute Bloggers:


In this year's presidential contest, the McCain-Palin are the home team and the Obama-Biden are the visitors.

That's why we're ahead: we Americans always root for our home team.

PROOF POSITIVE THAT OBAMA IS ON THE VISITING TEAM: OBAMA TALKS ABOUT AMERICANS AS IF HE WASN'T ONE OF US:

The one thing that I want to insist on is that, as I travel around the country, the American people are a decent people.

Now they get confused sometimes.

You know, they listen to the wrong talk radio shows or watch the wrong TV networks, um, but they’re, they’re basically decent, they’re basically sound.

PROOF POSITIVE THAT MCCAIN PALIN IS THE HOME TEAM:

Our country will be the better, and you will be the happier. Because nothing brings greater happiness in life than to serve a cause greater than yourself.

I’m going to fight for my cause every day as your president. I’m going to fight to make sure every American has every reason to thank God, as I thank Him: that I’m an American, a proud citizen of the greatest country on earth, and with hard work, strong faith, and a little courage, great things are always within our reach. Fight with me. Fight with me.

Fight for what’s right for our country. Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.

Fight for our children’s future. Fight for justice and opportunity for all. Stand up to defend our country from its enemies.

Stand up for each other; for beautiful, blessed, bountiful America.

Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. Nothing is inevitable here. We’re Americans, and we never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.

OBAMA'S "DISTANCIATION" FROM US AMERICANS IS NOT MERELY RHETORICAL; IT'S THE LEFTIST MINDSET: THEY'RE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF MOST ISSUES THAT WE AMERICANS CARE ABOUT:


Go read the whole thing.

Note that Obama refers to Americans listening to the "wrong radio talk shows" and watching the "wrong TV networks."

WRONG!?!??!??!??

He says they are wrong, though, as Americans, we are free to watch and listen to what we want to watch and listen to.

IAEA:Iran tried to refit its main long-distance missile to carry a nuclear payload

'Iran worked on long-range nuke missile'

Sep. 16, 2008
Associated Press

The UN nuclear monitoring agency on Tuesday shared intelligence purporting to show that Iran tried to refit its main long-distance missile to carry a nuclear payload, according to diplomats who attended the meeting.

Responding to the presentation to the 35-nation board of the International Atomic Energy Agency, a senior US envoy said the information was compelling evidence of such work by the Islamic Republic. But his Iranian counterpart said the material shown was fabricated.

Of course, because the UN is a hotbed of Zionist intrigue as Durban demonstrated

Other diplomats, who demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the closed meeting's details, described the information presented as something in-between the American and Iranian standpoints.

Uh, excuse me but it wasn't an American presentation, it was the IAEA, that group of aggressive go getters.

kabuki2.jpg

The briefing focused on an IAEA report circulated to the board members Monday that said Teheran stonewalled agency efforts to follow up on the alleged weapons program. The report also confirmed that Tehran was expanding its uranium enrichment activities - which can make either nuclear fuel or warhead payloads - despite three sets of UN Security Council sanctions.

Part of the report spoke of what appeared to be drawings and calculations by Iranian engineers on reconfiguring its Shahab-3 missile to be able to carry a nuclear payload, and the presentation Tuesday went into greater detail on that issue, the diplomats said.

Iranian officials say the new missile has a range of 1,250 miles - more than 2,000 kilometers - which would enable a strike on Israel and most of the Middle East.

The presentation "showed board members for the first time photographs and documents of work undertaken in Iran on the redesigning of the Shahab-3 missile to carry what would appear to be a nuclear weapon," said Gregory L. Schulte, the chief US representative to the IAEA. He said the senior IAEA official doing the briefing "told us that information they have is very credible."

But Schulte's Iranian counterpart said the meeting was told that the material shown could not verified.

"We have given clear information ... (on) why this material is fabricated," Ali Ashgar Soltanieh told reporters. He called for "an end to this endless process" of probing Iran for evidence of an arms program he said never existed, saying his country considered the investigation closed.

A diplomat from a third country inside the meeting told The Associated Press that board members were told "the information is credible but cannot be verified."

Another said that while the information was compelling, most of it was known and what was new in the presentation "appeared to be only a few new photos and diagrams."

In Washington, the State Department said it would host a meeting of top negotiators from the five UN Security Council countries and Germany on Friday to discuss how to proceed in wake of Monday's IAEA report, which was also sent to the council. Officials said the meeting would be held to prepare for a gathering of the six foreign ministers expected next week on the sidelines of the annual UN General Assembly session in New York.

The US and its Western allies would like to see Iran hit with new UN sanctions for its nuclear defiance, but Moscow and Beijing have traditionally been opposed to harsh Security Council action. China said Tuesday that imposing further penalties will not resolve the nuclear impasse.

What a complete waste of time, and totally bad theatre. Think these guys could manage to put a few of these on a beat up freighter 3-400 miles off DC?

Is Walid Shoebat A Fraud, Or Is Debbie Schlussel Losing Her Mind?



Debbie Schlussel says he is:


By Debbie Schlussel

[TO MY READERS: I originally wrote the column below in February. But I sat on it and didn't publish it because I feel bad about exposing even this fraud and creep, Walid Shoebat, despite the fact that he's plagiarized from me and harassed me under a fake name using his own e-mail address, and despite the fact that his equally shady manager, Keith Davies, fits a similar bill and has--along with Shoebat taken to trashing me.

But now that The Jerusalem Post has also exposed the fraudulence and fakery of Mr. Shoebat, I've decided I cannot remain silent on who he really is and his behavior, any longer. After harassing me, he tried to appear with me at a 9/11 event in Dearborn, and I realized I can no longer hold back. I've thought long and hard about it, but it must be done. The record must be set straight.]

Years ago, when I first heard of Walid Shoebat--the man who claims to have been a Palestinian Islamic terrorist--I liked his story. Since then, I praised him in more than one entry on this site. That was a mistake.

In the back of my mind, I always doubted his story. It's not that I don't believe Muslim terrorists can convert to Christianity and see the error of their ways. I personally know of a scant few who have, indeed, done that. And there are several former Muslims--Ayan Hirsi Ali (never a terrorist) comes to mind--and enlightened Arabs--my friend, Brigitte Gabriel, is one--who are great orators with an important message so many more need to hear.

It's that I simply didn't find Shoebat credible. And his behavior toward me is that of an unstable, insecure man who is upset that his shaky claims are being doubted. It's a case of trusting my instincts, and my instincts told me this man oozing arrogance, bravado, swagger, and not much else was a fraud--that this was a business for him, showmanship. And he never provided a shred of proof that he did what he said he did in his former life.

Still, I kept my doubts to myself, lest I be accused of enabling the Islamists, and because I had no beef with his message, a good one. My inclination was to ignore him and not waste my time or effort on this man. Sadly, though, that's not the way he sees things. For some reason, Walid Shoebat won't stop harassing me, despite my requests. He's annoying me and wasting my time. And he won't go away. So I can no longer look the other way.

Mr. Shoebat took it upon himself--despite my praise of him on this site--to engage in a pattern of behavior that spanned plagiarism and obscene verbal abuse to the non-stop barrage of harassing messages he sent me over the last two days under a fake name, "Sandra Medina." That's what I get for being nice and charitable to a snake. I got bitten.

All along, I figured the e-mails I got yesterday were coming from Shoebat or one of his blind believers. And, sadly, I was right. It's those instincts--when you trust them, you are right; When you don't, you regret it.

Shoebat made the mistake of e-mailing me using an e-mail he and his son had used to e-mail me before with their real names. While some real terrorists are stupid and inept (like Richard Reid, "The Shoe Bomber), most aren't--not that stupid.


Go read the whole thing.

I'm running close on time now that I'm back to work and haven't yet read all of Schlussel's article.

AOW note: Some time back, Mr. Shoebat wrote this. I have no idea if it answers the points in Schlussel's article.
