Bill Maher and Obama Are Breaking Up: “Pot-head you all know”... 

BILL MAHER: Gay barriers fell when Americans realized gays are their neighbors, their friends, their family members, their co-workers. Certainly that must also be true of potheads. We all know at least one. In fact, I bet there's one pothead who you all know.

Oh, not anymore. But here he is back in high school where his stoner posse the choom gang posing with a cake that I'm guessing didn't last long.

MASSIVE PROTESTS in Turkey Against Erdogan Government

From Gateway Pundit:

Turkey is seeing a second day of massive protests in its major cities, with tear gas and water cannons being deployed by the Erdogan government.
bridge turkey
Democracy protesters shut down the a bridge in Istanbul on the second day of mass protests. 

The protests started after the government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced plans to redevelop historic Gezi Park in Istanbul’s Taksim Square into a shopping mall. This upset locals who staged a sit-in protest.  The protests escalated into a mass uprising after the original group was attacked by government forces.  
What started at the beginning of the week as an environmental protest aimed at saving the park from a shopping mall has snowballed into a national display of anger at the Erdogan government.
The central subway station in the city’s metro network, has reportedly been shut down in an effort to keep more people from reaching the ongoing protests
PASTORIUS COMMENT: If Obama and Erdogan are as close as I believe they are, we will soon see the United States intervene in some way to save Erdogan's ass.

Judge Orders Google To Turn Over Customer Data To FBI Without Warrant

If you want a picture of the future, 
imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever. 
George Orwell

From Newsmax:

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge has ordered Google Inc. to comply with FBI warrantless demands for customer data. 
U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston on Tuesday rejected Google’s argument that the so-called National Security Letters the company received from the FBI were unconstitutional and unnecessary. Illston ordered Google to comply with the secret demands even though she found the letters unconstitutional in March in a separate case filed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. 
She acknowledged as much in her four-page order in the Google case made on May 20 and obtained by The Associated Press on Friday. 
Illston put the Google ruling on hold until the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals could decide the matter. Until then, she said the Mountain View, Calif.-based company would have to comply with the letters unless it showed the FBI didn’t follow proper procedures in making its demands for customer data in the 19 letters Google is challenging.

Former IRS Commissioner’s Wife Works for Far Left Group Fighting Open Campaign Spending

Former IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman is married to the senior program adviser forPublic Campaign, a leftist organization that aims to dramatically reduce the role of big special interest money in American politics and especially money to conservative groups. Susan L. Anderson, the Senior Program Advisor for Public Campaign, has worked extensively with national organizations and Congressional offices in promoting “Clean Money Campaign Reform.”
shulman irs
It’s not clear at this point how interested Public Campaign is in reducing public sector unions in the election process. But the group is definitely against several groups that support conservatives.
The Daily Caller reported:
Former Internal Revenue Service commissioner Douglas H. Shulman, a frequent White House guest during the period when the IRS was targeting conservative nonprofits, is married to the senior program advisor for Public Campaign, an “organization dedicated to sweeping campaign reform that aims to dramatically reduce the role of big special interest money in American politics.”
The IRS is under fire for improperly scrutinizing the tax-exempt nonprofit status of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012, demanding conservative training materials, personal information on conservative college interns and even the content of religious groups’ prayers. IRS supporters have defended the beleaguered agency by railing against outside spending and special interest money supposedly pumped into the 2012 campaign by conservative benefactors.
One of those defenders is the group of which Shulman’s spouse is an executive.

Distant Episodes: The Portrayal of Islam in the Literature of Paul Bowles

Photo taken in Morocco by Allen Ginsberg

Paul Bowles was the author of The Sheltering Sky. He is one of my favorite authors.

I am currently reading a novel by Bowles entitled The Spider's House. Nico, who is an ex-Muslim, has also agreed to read it and we will eventually do a post on our thoughts about the work.

I have a memory of having read a long article about Paul Bowles and Islam sometime shortly after 9/11. I believe the article was in the New Yorker or the Atlantic. Periodically, I scan Google searches looking for it, but alas, it is, for some reason, impossible to locate.

Today, I found this review of a book of Bowles' short stories. The review is dated October 21, 2001:
Always admired by his fellow writers, Bowles achieved wider public fame with Bernardo Bertolucci's 1990 film version of his 1949 novel, ''The Sheltering Sky.'' Like that longer work, over half of the 62 stories in this collection are set in the Muslim world; indeed, most are intended to portray Muslim experience and sensibility. 
In these stories, Bowles employs a style purged of American idiom and liberally sprinkled with Arabic words, which are inserted for coloration but also to fill the cultural gaps that language cannot traverse (just as our front pages nowadays use ''jihad'' or ''fatwa'').  
It is precisely in such uncharted territory that Bowles likes to situate his narratives. His representation of the relationship between Islam and the West is, to borrow another term from our current war lexicon, ''asymmetric.'' Here the Westerner is fascinated by the Muslim. The Muslim is, at best, incuriously aware of the Westerner.  
I received the review copy of this collection in late August and was rereading it in the second week of September. Events transformed what was in my hands.  
One story in particular, ''A Distant Episode,'' read differently after that awful Tuesday. The story was first published in 1947, shortly after Bowles's expatriation. In it, an unnamed, middle-aged French professor comes to ''the warm country'' (Saharan Morocco) to undertake research on variations in the Moghrebi dialect. The region, still a French possession, is evoked sensuously, with a redolence of ''orange blossoms, pepper, sun-baked excrement, burning olive oil, rotten fruit.''  
In addition to his linguistic investigations, the professor wishes to acquire some ''little boxes made from camel udders.'' By night, he is taken to the poor quarter of the town, where he is assured he can buy such bric-a-brac. He is instead robbed, beaten up, savaged by dogs and abducted by traders traveling into the desert by camel train.  
The reader is lulled into expecting a familiar captivity narrative. The expectation is brutally subverted.  
One of the traders pinches the professor's nose, then yanks out his tongue and slices it off. The atrocity surprises the professor and shocks the reader: ''The word 'operation' kept going through his mind; it calmed his terror somewhat as he sank back into darkness.''  
The student of Arab tongues now has no tongue. His captors have more than torment in mind for him. They deck him out in a head-to-toe costume made from the circular bottoms of tin cans strung together. Clad in this mock armor (the detritus of his Western civilization), he is now ''a valuable possession'' -- a tin box, no less.  
Over the following months, the professor is trained to caper for the postprandial entertainment of his owners. He is taught ''obscene gestures'' that ''elicit delighted shrieks from the women.'' He grunts hilariously. In the course of time (they are, after all, traders) the professor is sold and then stranded in a remote town. He throws himself on the mercy of a French soldier. ''Tiens,'' the poilu exclaims, ''a holy maniac,'' and takes a potshot at him, driving the comical tin man, clanking and gibbering, into the cold desert night -- an unwelcoming yellow road.  
One can allegorize this enigmatic story any number of ways: as a fable of mutual exploitation, mutual incomprehension or the casual sadisms engendered by decaying imperialism. 
The question that presses, however, is: does the professor know more about Muslims when he is a mutilated clown than he did when he was an academic? Must one suffer -- extremely -- at the hands of one's opponents to understand their extremism? Kurtz's ''exterminate all the brutes'' is the easier response. Bowles does not surrender to such easiness.

Muslims Preying In The Street

From the BBC:
French far right leader loses immunity, faces charges French far right leader, Marine Le Pen, could face criminal charges for inciting racism, the BBC has learnt.  
The French authorities opened a case against Mrs Le Pen in 2011 after she likened the sight of Muslims praying in the streets to the Nazi occupation of France.  
As a European Parliament member (MEP), she enjoyed immunity from prosecution. However, this protection was removed by a European parliamentary committee in a secret vote this week. BBC chief political correspondent Gary O'Donoghue says he has been told that the vote to remove her immunity was "overwhelming"
Marine Le Pen is RIGHT. Muslims taking up whole streets to pray is, indeed, the assertion of the dominance of a violent ideology. It is more than mere Dawah. It is Jihad, Holy War for the imposition of Sharia law.

Sharia Law is the Constitution of Saudi Arabia, and it functions as the fundamental basis of the Constitutions of most Muslim nations.

When a group or individual attempts to impose the laws of another nation by force, THAT IS CALLED SEDITION.

These Muslim Nazis are guilty of Sedition.

If the French Parliament had any sense they would throw the Muslim Nazis in prison.

Islamic Supremacism On Campus

May 30, 2013 (from Gateway Pundit):

Graduates from the homeschool group with which I work have told me this term that Mohammedans and Islamophiles on campuses all over America are getting pushier and pushier.

It's getting increasingly ugly out there, Infidels!

Swedish Politician Is All For Immigration When He Knows He's Being Filmed, Suddenly Anti-Immigration When He Doesn't Know He's Being Filmed

From Vlad Tepes, who comments,
There are probably a lot more duplicitous politicians in Europe and the EU than we previously thought as opposed to ‘true believers’ in the multi-culti narrative who are willing to sell out their countries, their peoples, and their histories for a mediocre career in politics.

Why Are The White British People Leaving London? 620,000 Have Fled In The Past Decade

From the BBC: 
Something quite remarkable happened in London in the first decade of the new millennium. The number of white British people in the capital fell by 620,000 - equivalent to the entire population of Glasgow moving out.
The consequence, as revealed by the latest census, is that white Brits are now in a minority in London, making up just 45% of its residents.
So where have they gone to - and why did they leave?

I can't imagine why they would have left.

From Atlas Shrugs:
This is devastating. Stealth coup. The IIIT is an Islamic institution with ties to the extremist Saudi-Wahhabi movement. It wasco-founded by Anwar Ibrahim, who strives to present himself to the West as a moderate, but who in fact is an Islamic supremacist who promotes global Islamic rule based on Sharia law.
IIIT was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document -- titled "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America" -- as one of the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded "organizations of our friends" that shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation. These "friends" wereidentified by the Brotherhood as groups that could help teach Muslims "that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions." (source: DTN)
US Naval Academy Instructor Teaching On Behalf Of US Muslim Brotherhood

By Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch

According to promotional material, a United States Naval Academy professor is teaching on behalf of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a part of the US Muslim Brotherhood and where global Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi reportedly serves as a trustee. IIIT recently announced its Summer Students Program for 2013 to be held from May 26 – July 3. According to the IIIT announcement, one of the instructors for the program will be Professor Ermin Sinanovic, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland who will be teaching the following course titled “Muslim World Affairs”:
This course is meant to provide students who had little or no background on the Muslim world with a basic understanding of its contemporary history, its geopolitics, its diverse cultures, languages and ethnic groups. Also, the course introduces the key issues and developments that framed the relationship between the world of Islam and the West, such as the colonial encounter, the capitalist expansion of the West, the emergence of the nation-state and its institutions, the discovery of oil in the Middle East and its implications, the communication revolution and contemporary globalization and their impact on cultures, values and life styles; and finally the US foreign policy towards the Muslim world and its implications. This course will be covered in twelve hours. Instructor: Professor Ermin Sinanovic, US Naval Academy, Maryland.

From PR Online:

One of the other instructors at the IIIT summer program will be US Muslim Brotherhood leader Louay Safi, identified in the announcement as affiliated with the College of Islamic Studies of the Qatar Foundation. In 2009 Louay Safi, also an official at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), was at the center of a controversy when it was learned that the US Defense Department brought him to Fort Hood as an instructor and that he had been lecturing on Islam to troops in Fort Hood who were about to deploy to Afghanistan.

Dr. Safi has also been recently identified as a leading member of the Syrian National Council, a Syrian opposition group dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood.

OBAMA IRS SCANDAL WIDENS – Conservative Activists and Businesses Targeted Too

** Nearly 500 conservative groups targeted
** At least 5 pro-Israel groups targeted
** Constitutional groups targeted
** Groups that criticized Obama administration were targeted
** At least two pro-life groups targeted
** A Texas voting-rights group was targeted
** Conservative activists and businesses were targeted
lerner shulman
It is now clear that the Obama IRS was targeting a much broader array of conservative groups than just Tea Party organizations.
McClatchyDC reported:
A group of anti-abortion activists in Iowa had to promise the Internal Revenue Service it wouldn’t picket in front of Planned Parenthood.
Catherine Engelbrecht’s family and business in Texas were audited by the government after her voting-rights group sought tax-exempt status from the IRS.
Retired military veteran Mark Drabik of Nebraska became active in and donated to conservative causes, then found the IRS challenging his church donations.
While the developing scandal over the targeting of conservatives by the tax agency has largely focused to date on its scrutiny of groups with words such as “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, these examples suggest the government was looking at a broader array of conservative groups and perhaps individuals. Their collective experiences at a minimum could spread skepticism about the fairness of a powerful agency that should be above reproach and at worst could point to a secret political vendetta within the government against conservatives.

Obama's DOJ and Islamophilia: "Social Media Posts" (that means Blogs, Facebook, etc.) Telling the Truth About Islam May Violate Civil Rights


This is not a surprise, but it is a clear and present danger to our freedom (dated May 30, 2013):
DOJ: Social Media Posts Trashing Muslims May Violate Civil Rights

In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights....


The area’s top federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, will address a topic that most Americans are likely unfamiliar with, even those well versed on the Constitution; that federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

The DOJ political appointee adds in the article that the upcoming presentation will also focus on Muslim culture with a special emphasis on the fact that the religion is no different from others, even though some in the faith have committed terrorist acts, Christians have done the same....
Go read the rest HERE. Now.

So, what are we to do about this, an issue of supreme importance. What the DOJ is trying to do strikes at the heart of Freedom of Speech!

Ace of Spades asks, "Has Obama Repealed the Clear and Present Danger Doctrine"?

How I Became Islamophobic

The following was written by a British college student. The original article is posted here.

My University in London used to be a Polytechnic. Before that, it was a parking lot. By gradients then, the same space has become progressively less functional over the ages, and it now blights the cultural life of an otherwise charming town.

In appearance, the main building resembles a very old-fashioned, inner-city high-school. The campus is tiny relative to normal universities. There is no green space nearby and we are surrounded on all sides by busy roads. The website calls it ‘cosy, modern and artful’. In reality it is compact, ugly and depressing.

I didn’t need to attend this place. I received very good A-level results. Warwick University was among the first institutions to offer me a place. I turned them and others down because I wanted to attend somewhere further away from the small, boring town in which my parents live. More specifically, I was determined to live and study in London.

What I had in mind was the London I saw on television; a stuffy, slightly upmarket New York in effect, with intelligent men and aspirant women supping cocktails and espresso, you know the kind of place. What I have become used to since I arrived here is a city of burkas, terrorism, homophobia, black-tar heroin, and prostitution; a magnificent metropolis half-destroyed by a single cultural minority.

You may think, dear general reader, that the panic and hysteria over Islam is unwarranted or driven by third-party interests (oil politics, Jewish Nationalism, Racism etc…). The ‘me’ just a day or two into freshers week would completely agree with you. The ‘me’ now wants you to listen carefully and without prejudice as to why this is not the case.

I realise now that the present epoch is a contest between two starkly different futures: One in which the West is Islamised and the other in which the West is restored. The first is a nightmare of which some of us already have a taste, and which we are fully prepared to fight to prevent.

I’ll give you three examples of the trend from personal experience…

During my first year of study, I was resident in a student halls with many other people, most of them Muslim, most of them British-born. Throughout this year I witnessed (and on occasion, suffered) cultural bullying of a type I never imagined existed. This was the bullying routinely talked about on racist websites, and which I had always assumed to be Islamophobic fiction.

Here’s a question for you: In what situation do you think it is appropriate to label a women you don’t know a ‘slag’? I’m sure, assuming you are a decent and rational person, that you would only imagine yourself using such language during a fit of rage over something like a terrible betrayal, or after being physically attacked by a female stranger…

Well, the non-Muslim women of my block grew used to hearing this word in retribution for such crimes as wearing shorts on their way to netball practice. They became used to hearing it when they went out in groups to local nightclubs and when they returned home in the early hours of the morning. They hardly blinked when such slurs were screamed out of windows, day-in and day-out, and it went unreported.

Here’s another question for you: In what situation do you think it is justified to spread lies about people you barely know?

Well, lies of the most serious and defamatory kind were routinely spread about non-Muslim students by Muslims that year, via intranet email, graffiti and loud insinuation. The women (the ‘slags’) were alleged to be infected with sexual diseases. The boys were alleged to be homosexual and/or riddled with AIDS. The ‘evidence’ for such slurs were the lifestyles of the Kaffir – their attending of parties, easy laughter and congregating with people of the opposite sex etc…

Here’s a second example…

On St. Valentine’s Day during the second year, the Student Union decided to propose a Valentine’s Day Singles Ball to which men would come wearing badges saying ‘single’ to meet women who would be identified likewise. It sounded quite silly I remember thinking, but if people enjoyed it, who cared?

You don’t need me to tell you who cared about it, and who eventually protested loudly enough for the Ball to be cancelled. It was the ****** University Islamic Society, a sprawling and powerful mafia with tentacles reaching into every aspect of student life. They thought the ball would encourage promiscuity and so they lobbied against it.

Again, nobody said a word.

A third and final example I’ll give of my awakening is the most serious. You might well dismiss what you’ve read so far as ‘anti-social’ behaviour and no worse than that of other social groups, but not this occasion:

I was sitting in class one day, near the back of the room. The lecturer had finished talking and now we were told to discuss amongst ourselves the things we’d heard. A group of Muslim men just across from me were apparently uninterested in the lecture that day as they commenced to discuss videos they’d been emailing each other instead. It took me a short while, but I came to understand that these were decapitation videos. After hearing words and descriptions that I never want to repeat, I nervously looked over at the faces of the men and saw sick, sadistic smiles curling up their bearded faces.

At the end of that year, I was a fully developed ‘Islamophobe’. I can’t and won’t deny what I witnessed and what I saw others go through. And more than this, I won’t help the taboo to survive which allowed for these abuses to go unreported.

If there is one thing my University made clear during Fresher’s Week, it was the ‘multi-faculty policy on discrimination’. In lengthy assemblies, we were told that no ‘discrimination’ of any kind was tolerated longer than it took for those responsible to be expelled.

A climate of fear, no less palpable than that of totalitarian dictatorship was cast over us all.

You’ll notice that I haven’t provided you with the name of my University. This is because I am currently studying there and do not wish to be beaten to a pulp by students. I wouldn’t trust the staff or security to help me in such a situation. This University is Islamic territory now.

The people I hope to reach are those who might have any illusions about the determination of the Muslims to enforce their way of life onto the rest of us. It is not a ‘Zionist fabrication’. It is not a ‘fantasy’ of White Nationalists.  I am a perfectly liberal guy, and have a zero-tolerance policy for racism.

The threat is real.
