Infidel's Positions

This is a summary of the answers to the question: Do You Have a Position?

Marketing guru Seth Godin said, "If you can't describe your position in eight words or less, you don't have a position." I would add, if you don't have a position, it is very difficult to persuade anyone.

Blogger Pastorius said, "I have two positions:

We're created in the image of God; free.

Sharia is Sedition.

Blogger Citizen Warrior said, "Freedom is protected by exposing the Islamic memeplex."

Blogger Pastorius said, "It might be better to scare people by saying 'The Islamic Memeplex destroys Freedom on contact.'"

Blogger Epaminondas said, "We are in a war against Islamic extremism, that war is worldwide," (quoting John McCain).

Anonymous Anonymous said, "Constitutional liberties and American justice aren't bargaining chips."

Blogger Citizen Warrior said, "We risk our freedoms giving concessions to Islam."

Blogger SamenoKami said, "1) The only good jihadist is a dead jihadist.
(Can I say that?)

2) Jews MUST have a nation of their own."

Blogger Always On Watch said, "I've been told that my mission is 'Stop the whitewash of Islam.'

That certainly is the main theme of my web site.

My so-called motto also means something to those who understand the Islamic threat: 'Go ye forth and collect fatwas.' The meaning? Stop appeasement of those sworn to our destruction."

Anonymous Anonymous said, "30 words:

«The Muslim´s claim that Allah is the God of the Bible and that Islam arose from the religion of the prophets and apostles is refuted by solid, overwhelming archeological evidence.»

http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/moongod.htm

Abraham's DNA won't be discovered in Muhammad's tribe.

Islam is a lie, Muhammad made it up.

Islam is not Abrahamic faith. Mo scammed.

Al Qaeda, get a real job - their wives should make them clean the floor.

MESSAGE!

Mind Virus Detected! As the dominant species on the infected planet, the burden of localization and disinfection falls squarely on your shoulders. Good Luck!

All extra-solar travel is hereby suspended until the memetic threat to the wider galactic community is verifiably eliminated.

END MESSAGE

Blogger Pastorius said, "That one is excellent. It combines suggestion with insult. Insult works against the Jihad, because it causes Jihadists to become angry, and when they are angry, they show their true colors."

Anonymous Anonymous said, "Jihadists look for a date in the hereafter.

Sharia is hate.

Mo´s paradise is a brothel."

Our current economic crisis: Could part be a terror attack on U.S. financials?

From Northeast Intelligence Network:

On this year's anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, there was a sudden surge in the activity of U.S. hedge funds originating from overseas... like Dubai. There was a sharp rise in "short selling" of stocks, similar to the suspicious trades in the days preceding September 11, 2001. According to one well-known economist, the same institutions attacked on 9/11 are those suffering now. Coincidence?


26 September 2008: A week ago, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) took the unprecedented step of temporarily banning the fairly common practice of “short selling” securities in response to the widening economic crisis in the U.S. The essence of the ban is that the SEC has placed a hold on “short selling” in 799 financial institutions until October 2, 2008, in tandem with the FSA, which is the British counterpart of the SEC.

In a press release issued September 19, 2008, the SEC made the following announcement (excerpt):

The Securities and Exchange Commission, acting in concert with the U.K. Financial Services Authority, today took temporary emergency action to prohibit short selling in financial companies to protect the integrity and quality of the securities market and strengthen investor confidence. The U.K. FSA took similar action yesterday.

In its most basic definition, short selling (or selling short) is the act of a person or entity selling a security instrument, such as a stock, expecting, for whatever reason, that the price of the security will decline. For example, a person sells the stock today to a buyer at the current price, buying the stock back later at the anticipated reduced price, keeping the difference as profit. Because a person does not actually own the stock they are selling, such transactions are conducted through securities lenders, such as Goldman Sachs, for example.

The concept of short selling is rather simple: the greater the decline of the particular stock, the more money the seller stands to make in pure profit. The inverse is also true: should the value of the stock rise, the seller would then lose money on the transaction. Perhaps the biggest factor that one must keep in mind about selling short is this: the profit is limited but the loss is unlimited. Therefore, the short seller is taking an exceptional risk when engaging in such transactions -an important fact as you read on.

Short selling of stocks: Sound familiar?

At least in part, short selling transactions have been identified as contributing to the demise or imminent demise of a number of longstanding and historically revered investment firms, including but not limited to Lehman Brothers. According to analysts and experts in the financial markets, there has been a very sharp upsurge in market transactions of this type, ultimately causing a portion of the market woes that we are presently experiencing within our financial markets.

Many might recall one of the murkier aspects of 9/11 conspiracy theories involves the speculation of airline stocks in the weeks before the attacks. It has been proven that the options market for United and American Airlines, two of the airlines involved in the attacks, was unusually busy in the days before 9/11 with an extremely heavy volume of "put options," or selling the stocks “short.” The activity was unusual enough that both the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) initiated investigations into the unusual trading activity.

October surprise and recent incidents involving Somali muslims around the globe


Think about this . . .Al Qaeda has openly called for violent jihad against Western interests. They've boasted about chemical, biological and nuclear armed ambtions.  Below are links to stories involving cyanide,  radiation poisoning, military grade weapons, suicide notes . . .all with Somali finger prints.

All around the globe, there appears to be a thread connecting seemingly unconnected events.   .  . they all involve Somali muslims.  

Remember this warning from a few days ago?

Is the warning related to all the incidents involving Somali Muslims?

"Security forces entered the Amsterdam-bound jet at 6:55 am (local time) and took a 23-year-old Somali and a 24-year-old German citizen of Somali origin into custody . . ."

Did these pirates perchance moore offshore in Somali waters, like say Eyl, a sleepy fishing village? Earlier, another pirated ship from Iran with a cargo of minerals . . .
"Within days, pirates who had boarded the ship developed strange health complications, skin burns and loss of hair. Independent sources tell The Long War Journal that a number of pirates have also died. " 
From Jihadwatch:. "Russian Navy ship sent to combat pirates," by Scott Bevan for ABC News

More on the ACORN payola bailout from Investor's Business Daily

It's hard to believe the utter NERVE, the naked and stupid CHUTZPAH!
ACORN AND LA RAZA !!!!

Rescuing ACORN

By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY | Posted Friday, September 26, 2008 4:20 PM PT

Election '08: Democrats want to use profits from the bailout as a slush fund for liberal activist groups, even those involved in vote fraud to help elect Barack Obama.

obamanoxious.jpg

Prior financial bailouts, or "rescues," such as those involving savings and loan failures, and Chrysler, have over time actually made money for the government. It may be the case here as well, as assets bought by the government at bargain prices return to marketable values and are auctioned off.

One of the sticking points in resolving the crisis was a poison pill in the Dodd/Paulson compromise that would move 20% of profits from the bailout into the Housing Trust Fund, a slush fund for political action groups such as ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) and the National Council of La Raza.

Sen. Lindsey Graham told Greta Van Susteren of Fox News that Democrats had other priorities than just solving this crisis: "And this deal that's on the table now is not a very good deal. Twenty percent of the money that should go to retire debt that will be created to solve this problem winds up in a housing organization called ACORN that is an absolute ill-run enterprise, and I can't believe we would take money away from debt retirement to put it in a housing program that doesn't work."

resi_pelosi.jpg

Groups such as ACORN and La Raza lobby to secure government-funded services for their members and seek to move them to the voting booth. The housing bill President Bush signed in July contained a similar funding mechanism for the HTF -- a tax on mortgages backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

The tax was designed to channel upwards of $600 million annually in grants for developing and restoring housing, mostly as low-income rentals, available to ACORN and other groups. ACORN gets 40% of its revenues from the American taxpayers and not all of it finds its way into housing.

A new whistle-blower report from the Consumer Rights League claims that ACORN routinely commingles funds from its housing arm into political projects such as voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives. Money is fungible. Any taxpayer money that ACORN gets for housing makes it easier for the group to put its other funds into voter drives.

"These are taxpayer funds, in an indirect method, being used to subsidize political activism," says Rep. Jeb Hensarling, a Texas Republican and chairman of the conservative House Republican Study Committee. "I'm sure they're not going out and registering any Republicans."

Obama cut his community organizer teeth with ACORN. As a young lawyer he represented the group in a suit against the state of Illinois, which was concerned that postcard registration and a new motor voter law might invite fraud. ACORN later invited Obama to train its staff in leadership seminars.

ACORN has a political arm that endorsed Barack Obama for president in February and has stepped up its registration efforts to help elect a future benefactor. The Obama campaign admits to failing to report $800,000 in campaign payments to ACORN. They were disguised as payments to a front group called "Citizen Services Inc." for "advance work."

Consumer Rights League official Jim Terry says: "ACORN has a long and sordid history of employing convoluted Enron-style accounting to illegally use taxpayer funds for their own political gain. Now it looks like ACORN is using the same type of convoluted accounting scheme for Obama's political gain."

A major part of ACORN's sordid history is vote fraud. ACORN has been implicated in voter fraud and bogus registration schemes in Missouri, Ohio and at least 12 other states. Last July, ACORN settled the largest case of voter fraud in Washington state history, involving nearly 2,000 bogus voter forms. In Ohio in 2004, ACORN submitted forms for the likes of Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and someone named Jive Turkey.

ACORN uses taxpayer money to elect people like Barack Obama who will work to get them more taxpayer money. Democrats are willing to rip off taxpayers in a national crisis to make it happen.

Germany: Armed police storm passenger jet to arrest two jihadists who left suicide notes

From Jihad Watch:

Apparently they were ready to "kill and be killed" for Allah, as per Qur'an 9:111. "Armed police storm passenger jet to arrest two Somali terror suspects who had left suicide notes," from theDaily Mail, September 26 (thanks to R.B.):

German police have arrested two male terror suspects who left suicide notes on a plane that was just about to take off in Cologne.

The pair are suspected of wanting to take part in militant Islamic attacks. They were arrested this morning on a KLM airplane at Cologne airport that was heading for Amsterdam.

One of the men was a Somali and the other was a German born in Somalia's capital Mogadishu, a spokesman said. They were hauled out of the plane just before take off about 0455 GMT.

A KLM spokeswoman said on NOS news in the Netherlands that police boarded the plane when it was at its "point of departure" and grabbed the two suspects.

Everyone was then forced to leave the plane, and there was a "baggage parade" to see whose bags belonged to whom, she said.

Germany's top-selling Bild newspaper, citing police sources, said the two had been under observation for months and a suicide note was found in their apartment saying that they wanted to die for the "jihad" or "holy war."...

Infidel Art


An Infidel is anyone hated by Jihadis. Infidels include Atheists, Agnostics, Footballs lovers (pigskins), Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, porn stars, beer-drinkers, etc. etc.

Hell, if you're a Muslim and your fellow Muslims hate you because, maybe, you're gay, or because you don't believe in Jihad, 

then you just might be an Infidel.

Barack Obama Is Trying To Destroy Two Of Your Constitutional Rights In One Swing Of The Sword

Fuck Barack Obama. 

If he tries swinging that sword at us Americans, he won't know what hit him.

As my friend Epaminondas says,

The 2nd amendment exists so that the govt fears the people, and not the other way around. 

If you think the banking crisis is bad, wait until we have the American equivalent of Hugo Chavez running our fucking country.

God help us.




This is straight out of the GRU/KGB/STASI manual!

MORE THUGGISHNESS: Obama threatening the licenses of TV stations that run NRA ads.

Haven't we had about enough of this? Related item here. They told me that if George W. Bush were re-elected there would be brazen efforts to suppress free speech on political grounds -- and they were right!

UPDATE: Still more on the ad-silencing effort here.

ANOTHER UPDATE: "I fear that under the Obama administration, the lawyers sending these letters will be government employees."

Plus, from Jacob Sullum at Reason, Why Obama is Vulnerable On the Second Amendment.

MORE: Prosecutors and sheriffs threatening to prosecute Obama critics?

Check out this TV news report from St. Louis, too, which makes clear that the Obama campaign is behind this.

Thugs on parade. Will the U.S. Department of Justice investigate? Or are they compromised?

STILL MORE: This is the ad that's got the Obama campaign so upset. You can make up your own mind, but it doesn't seem especially unusual for a political ad, though it's certainly likely to hurt Obama in the bitter-clinger demographic. Of course, more people will see it now because of this controversly. And here, at Politico, is the NRA response. (Bumped).

MORE STILL: Reader Carolyn Gockel writes: "Why Obama is Vulnerable On the First Amendment: The whole NRA flap is going beyond gun rights advocates...I'm not as pro-gun as you and I am furious." Yeah, and the bit with state law enforcement officials threatening critics is even worse. I wonder if the ACLU will weigh in on this one? Seems like a good opportunity for them to show their nonpartisan nature.






Just think what a President Obama would do after he was in power.

This is Frightening, people.
Being a student of World War II and the events in Europe leading up to it, the parallels with Il Duce, Benito Mussolini are eerie scary.

Obama's handlers (because, after all Barry often has problems deciding for himself what to do...) are taking a page right out of the Blackshirts/Brownshirts playbook. Perhaps the beautiful--if historically jingoistic--film Pan's Labyrinth is more appropriately digested if seen in a light of of a warning about what can happen today, not some revisionist history about Franco (Orwell is pretty open about his view of the Communists after his prior affiliation with the Marxists in that war...). Other recommendations:The Lives of Others and The Inner Circle...

Welcome to the 1930's. Better stock up on arms and ammo while you still have the chance... unless we DEFEAT these Nazis, they may be coming for you soon.

RELATED: Key Obama fundraiser meets with Ahmadinejad. Now there's a role model for Democratic leadership...

Meanwhile Übermensch Val Prieto--the immigrant from Castro's Cuba who does know the difference advises:
Be afraid, folks. Be very afraid.
That seems like good advice to me. Time to go stock up on guns and ammo...



UPDATE: Epaminondas notes,

This is not the only such incident...

There's THIS

There's THIS
which resulted in THIS

The mind set is that since the progresives are on the 'side' of 'social and economic justice', the other is not, and therefore anything they do is 'good'

Hey Barack, after you remember the name on the bracelet maybe the dwarf will meet you over this

Iran solves centrifuge issues, could have nuke capability by March

WASHINGTON -- Iran has significantly enhanced its gas centrifuge fleet, despite assertions to the contrary, according to a new report.

The Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security stated that Teheran has resolved many of the technical flaws in its 4,000 centrifuges being used in Iran's uranium enrichment program. The institute, headed by former United Nations nuclear inspector David Albright, said Teheran was enriching uranium at a rate that would enable nuclear weapons capacity by March 2009.


Reminder....using 1944 technology it took the USA 10 months to refine enough U-235 for weapon deemed so reliable it didn't even need testing before it was dropped on Hiroshima (the test at Alamogordo in July 1945 was of a plutonium implosion device, not a U-235 device). That's June-July 2009 FOR A USABLE WEAPON if the starting line is September.

Is there time for diplomacy to work? Or is there just enough time for military plans? Or should we just act as Joe Biden advises...

Biden told Jerusalem officials three years ago that he firmly opposed an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities and that Israel would likely have to come to terms with a nuclear Iran.
I wonder if the other dictatorships in the area feel the same way as Biden does about acquiescence to Iran?

"The centrifuges now appear to be running at approximately 85 percent of their stated target capacity, a significant increase over previous rates," the report said.

A map locating Iran's nuclear facilities. AFP
The report, released on Sept. 15, was based on information by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

In early 2008, the agency indicated that Iran was operating its centrifuge fleet at 50 percent capacity.

Titled "Centrifuge Operation Significantly Improving," the U.S. institute said Iran has now intensified uranium enrichment. The institute cited an IAEA finding that from May 7 to Aug. 30, 2008, Iran fed 3,630 kilograms of uranium hexafluoride into the cascades at the Natanz plant, "a significant increase over previous rates."

"Whatever the actual amount of LEU [low-enriched uranium], Iran is progressing toward this [nuclear weapons] capability and can be expected to reach it in six months to two years," the report said.

The institute's assessment appeared to differ with that of IAEA. On Sept. 15, an agency briefer told the board of governors that Iran was operating much of its centrifuge fleet at 20 percent capacity.

But Albright, along with report co-authors Jacqueline Shire and Paul Brannan, determined that Iran has overcome difficulties in operating its P-1 centrifuge cascades. The researchers said that until mid-2008 Iran lost a significant amount of uranium because of breakdowns in Pakistani-designed P-1 centrifuges.

"This latest [IAEA] report, however, shows that Iran has largely overcome these problems, which is reflected in the increased feed rates and LEU production," the institute said. "One official close to the agency stated that Iran may have reached a point where its cascades are operating in a stable manner, noting that fewer centrifuges are breaking."

The institute said Iran has assembled 18 cascades that comprise 3,000 P-1 centrifuges. At the same time, Iran was installing a second module of 3,000 centrifuges.

Iran has also been accelerating tests of its advanced IR-2 centrifuge. The institute said Iran has installed two or three models of what was termed "next-generation" centrifuges, including IR-2, IR-3 and "possibly a longer centrifuge."

"During this reporting [May to August 2008] period, Iran has significantly increased the feed rate into its IR-2 centrifuges," the report said. "This development appears to reflect Iran's goal of developing a more advanced centrifuge that can be deployed in the FEP [fuel enrichment plant] instead of its P1 centrifuges. It is unknown how long Iran intends to test these new designs or when they could be deployed in large numbers in the underground halls."


Duh, ya think they might be underground?

Amid the flags on power poles leading to town hall in Norman Rockwell land - a sign....

Painted on something larger than two sheets of plywood...

NO BAILOUT !
DON'T PASS A BAILOUT
TO HELP THIEVES !

I'd say about 70% of the cars passing honked or flashed their lights.

Overheard in the register line at the health food store in a town of 26,000 about two hours before the debate..."But how much does the FDIC have put aside to pay us off if too many banks close? I can't wait a week for my money from the ATM. I have to take some money out. Just in case"
(Actually the FDIC said only yesterday they are currently estimating that as of Friday the are underfunded by about $150 billion, I kept my mouth shut. The largest local bank chain is TD Banknorth, a Canadian bank which has been swallowing up more local chains.)
Response - "What happens if they just turn on the printing presses? Will it cost $10 for a loaf of healthy bread in six months?" (Bread at the health food store is already at $4-5 avg for local artisan breads)

I have a feeling people are pretty pissed off, and worried enough in their own personal existence to do things which, on a macro scale can jump this game to the next level.

All this against the back ground of the revolt of the house republicans who just don't want much to do with this mess, and apparently never did. Since the democrats hold a clear majority in the house, one as to ask why Ms Pelosi simply didn't PASS THIS THING? Maybe it stinks so badly she wants the republicans tainted? As a concerned citizen, wouldn't you like ot know what the HELL THEY ARE NEGOTIATING?

Especially since the huge layout to ACORN story has turned out to be true as an earmark in this bill? Link leads to Malkin, and National Review also confirms, altho they say they THINK they have been told it's going to be dropped (DUH, IT HAD BETTER BE OR I WILL PULL THE LEVER FOR WHOEVER IS NOT AN INCUMBENT IN CONGRESS)

Especially since Harry Reid tried to add a proviso to BAN GETTING OIL SHALE IN THE WEST

$25 billion dollar loan to the auto industry? For what? Ignoring fuel cells?

No one has been more aware that the credit markets are totally bereft of confidence and need some kind of bill passed to demonstrate, if nothing else, that the USA can commit an act, but this chain of stupidities show just how far gone congress really is, and just how much attention must be paid IN REAL TIME.

Just what is it they are going to agree to?

And whose eye would you rather see monitoring that mess next January?

Of Rocks and Hard Places

As someone who went off the Conservative Party big time in the 1990's, having suffered personally from their economic ineptitude I welcomed Tony Blair and NuLabour. At the time I vowed I would never vote Tory again.

Sometime in the next 18 months I will be voting Tory. So what changed? Multiculturalism and the Islamification of the UK is what done it! I can't wait for our present government to be kicked into touch. I don't trust the Tories on many things - spending cuts in order to benefit the rich, too much free market, especially in view of current free market cock ups e.g: the first country in the world to produce electricity with nuclear energy has to resort to a French company that is 80% owned by the French government to build our nuclear power plants.

I digress, what I am saying is I don't like the Tories either but there is one issue alone that gives them my vote and that is there might be a shift in direction on multiculturalism. After all, the average Tory is more likely to value our own culture and heritage and is therefore more likely to defend it. So it is with spirits lifted by a tad I saw this article in the Guardian today:

Multiculturalism in the UK has left a "terrible" legacy, creating a vacuum that has been filled by extremists from across the political spectrum, the shadow home secretary, Dominic Grieve, warns today.

In an interview with the Guardian on the eve of the Conservative party conference, Grieve says that "long-term inhabitants" have been left fearful, while second- and third- generation immigrants have felt alienated and unsure what British values stand for. He also warns against downplaying Britain's Christian heritage.

But Grieve today ventures into the sensitive subject of multiculturalism in some of the strongest remarks by a Tory in recent times. He tells the Guardian: "We've actually done something terrible to ourselves in Britain. In the name of trying to prepare people for some new multicultural society we've encouraged people, particularly the sort of long-term inhabitants, to say 'well your cultural background isn't really very important'." He adds: "In this vacuum the BNP rise and Hizb ut-Tahrir rises. They're two very similar phenomena of people who are experiencing a form of cultural despair about themselves, their identity. And it's terribly easy to latch on to confrontational and aggressive variants of their cultural background as being the only way to sort of reassure themselves that they can survive and have an identity."

The shadow home secretary said multiculturalism was inspired by the "understandable" desire to make people feel comfortable. But he added: "The idea behind it was [to] create the melting pot. But the melting pot needs the ingredients of people's confidence in themselves as they come together. And if it isn't there I think we've done ourselves huge damage."

He also raises fears that "fundamental Islam" is restricting debate. "Our country has adapted because people have been tolerant which has often required a lot of forbearance and acceptance of things they didn't like. We all have to accept things we don't like. That is how Britain has evolved. When I go and address an Islamic audience I always point this out."

An Anglican, Grieve praises the contribution all the major religions have made to Britain. But he says that people should not forget Britain's Christian heritage. "The role of Christianity is really rather important. It can't just be magicked out of the script. It colours many of the fundamental viewpoints of British people, including many who've never been in a church."

Perhaps the beautiful--if historically jingoistic--film Pan's Labyrinth is more appropriately digested if seen in a light of of a warning about what can happen today, not some revisionist history about Franco (Orwell is pretty open about his view of the Communists after his prior affiliation with the Marxists in that war...). Other recommendations:The Lives of Others and The Inner Circle...

Welcome to the 1930's. Better stock up on arms and ammo while you still have the chance... unless we DEFEAT these Nazis, they may be coming for you soon.

Meanwhile Übermensch Val Prieto--the immigrant from Castro's Cuba who does know the difference advises:
Be afraid, folks. Be very afraid.
That seems like good advice to me. Time to go stock up on guns and ammo...

I was looking for a label for this article and discovered we have a label called "Islamic Irony." This story should top the list.
