Argentine President: In 2010, An Obama Administration Official Asked Me to Provide Iran with Nuclear Fuel; Obama Administration Official Confirms Story

Yes, it's true.

The most amazing thing about this story is not that they admitted it. It's that they have an EXCUSE. A positive motivation, you see.

What could possibly be the positive motivation behind fueling Iran's Nuclear Weapnos Program?

Because, the Jew-haters, er, I mean Obama Administration reasoned that, if they give Iran already-enriched fuel, they couldn't possibly enrich it any more. They wouldn't do that. No, they wouldn't.

Except of course to make nuclear weapons to kill Jews.

German Police Chief: Muslim Refugees Attacking Christian Refugees So Often They Should Be Housed Separately


From the Telegraph:
Christian and Muslim refugees should be housed separately in Germany to minimise tensions following growing levels of violence at asylum seeker shelters, a police chief has urged. 
Jörg Radek, deputy head of Germany’s police union, said migrants should be divided, following increasing numbers of attacks on Christians in refugee centres. 
“I think housing separated according to religion makes perfect sense,” Jörg Radek, deputy head of Germany’s police union, told German newspaper Die Welt, particularly for Muslims and Christians. 
Two separate clashes erupted between refugees on Sunday at a temporary migrant shelter in Kassel-Calden in northern Germany left 14 people injured, police said. 
The first outbreak of violence in the afternoon was triggered by a dispute in the canteen at lunchtime between two groups of around 60 refugees, followed by a second clash in the evening involving a group of 70 migrants against another of 300. 
A few days earlier on Thursday evening, a fight broke out among up to 200 Syrian and Afghan refugees at a shelter in Leipzig, with migrants wielding table legs and slats. 
German police have come under huge pressure during the refugee crisis as they are required to register new arrivals, settle conflicts in migrant homes and protect asylum seekers from Right-wing extremist protesters. 
“The police have reached their absolute breaking point,” said Mr Radek. “Our officials are increasingly being called to confrontations in refugee homes. 
When there are 4,000 people in a home which only actually has places for 750, this confinement then leads to aggression where even a tiny thing like the corridor to the toilet can lead to violence.”

Libyan soldiers jailed for sexually assaulting three teenage girls in drunken rampage in Cambridge are ‘seeking asylum in UK’

“Three Libyan soldiers have claimed asylum in Britain days after they were released from prison for sexually assaulting three teenagers after going on a drunken rampage, it was revealed today. 
Ibrahim El Maarfi, 21, Khaled El Azibi, 19, and Mohammed Abdalsalam, 27, worked ‘in a pack’ on the streets of Cambridge looking for victims to attack, their trial heard. 
The three men were among 300 Libyan trainees stationed at Basingbourn army base and have now been transferred to an immigration centre after they served around ten months in prison. 
A lawyer for one of their three victims said today that the woman was ‘dismayed’ that the men have asked to stay in Britain permanently…”

New York City Council Honors Ethel Rosenberg for ‘great bravery’


City Council Honors Ethel Rosenberg for ‘great bravery’
Ethel Rosenberg, who was executed with her husband for treason in 1953, was honored Monday by the City Council on what would have been her 100th birthday. 
Three council members joined Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer in issuing two proclamations lauding Rosenberg, a Lower East Side resident, for “demonstrating great bravery” in leading a 1935 strike against the National New York Packing and Supply Co., where she worked as a clerk. 
The proclamations also said she was “wrongfully” executed for helping her husband, Julius, pass atomic secrets to the Soviet Union. 
“A lot of hysteria was created around anti-communism and how we had to defend our country, and these two people were traitors and we rushed to judgment and they were executed,” said Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Queens).
Proving, once again, the Labor Movement was infiltrated with Communists - like the Rosenberg's, in this case.

Here's the truth about the Rosenberg's and their passing of nuclear secrets:
All those who treasure America’s liberties should solemnly observe the 60th anniversary this week of the execution of Communist spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. 
Given that the Soviet Union they spied for is no more, why are the Rosenbergs still important? 
They continue to matter because they remain part of the Left's anti-American mythology. 
The Left denied the treachery of its pseudo-martyrs for decades, arguing that they were condemned to death in a wave of anti-Communist hysteria. This lie permeates American culture even today -- in movies, plays, and literature -- decades after Ron Radosh's painstaking research conclusively established the Rosenbergs' guilt. 
Electrocuted at Sing Sing on June 19, 1953, the penalty they paid was more severe than the sentences handed down to other American traitors such as Alger Hiss, Robert Hanssen, and Aldrich Ames, who similarly jeopardized the nation by passing sensitive data to the Soviet Union during the Cold War. But the punishment meted out to the Rosenbergs was just because their actions led to the deaths of who knows how many Americans. 
The Rosenberg spy ring gave the USSR sensitive information about U.S. air capabilities in the Korean War and the secrets of the A-bomb, allowing our totalitarian enemies to develop nuclear weapons years earlier than they otherwise would have. These spies helped to change the balance of power in the world and emboldened the irredentist Soviet Union as it became a superpower and went on the march enslaving tens of millions in Eastern Europe. 
The Rosenberg saga, which cleared the way for the meteoric rise of Sen. Joseph McCarthy and his high-profile investigations into anti-American activities by U.S. citizens, unfolded during the so-called Red Scare of the 1950s, a relative nonevent that gave imaginative radicals something to whine about for years as they indulged their persecution complex. 
"In the entire Cold War period less than two hundred leaders and functionaries of the [Communist] Party ever went to prison, in most cases serving less than two years," David Horowitz writes in Radical Son: A Generational Odyssey. 
"This was not a small number or an insignificant price to pay for their political allegiances. But, considering the Party's organizational ties to an enemy power armed with nuclear weapons poised to attack America, it was not a large one, either." 
Hollywood, long a hotbed of radicalism, came to the Party's rescue, serving as a huge Soviet echo chamber. The dream factory helped the Communist cause by churning out product that falsely depicted anti-Communists as vicious opportunists conducting politically motivated witch hunts. 
Does this sound familiar, my fellow counter-Jihadists?
Because the Rosenbergs were unabashed Communists who didn't hide their admiration of Stalin's Soviet Union, the Left ran to their defense, using rationales that shifted over time as more and more damning evidence surfaced against the couple. When the Rosenbergs' guilt could no longer be disputed, their defenders pivoted, saying they had noble intentions and that the information passed on to the Soviets was junk. 
These are all lies. 
It is important to understand what the Rosenbergs actually did. 
Specifically, the Rosenbergs were "motivated by loyalty to the Soviet Union, not opposition to fascism as their defenders claim," Radosh explains. The Rosenberg spy ring "provided vast quantities of technical data to the Soviet Union that helped it achieve near parity with the United States in the skies over Korea and Vietnam." 
"When the Cold War turned hot in Korea, this technology was used to kill American soldiers," he writes. For example, the purloined information was "probably used in the design of the Russian high-tailed MiG fighter jet that was deployed in Korea against American airmen." 
"Rosenberg himself gave his Soviet handler Alexander Feklisov the proximity fuse, which was used to track Francis Gary Powers’ U-2 plane and to shoot it down during the Eisenhower administration," Radosh writes. 
The Rosenberg network "passed on the 12,000 page blueprints for the Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star, airborne radars for nighttime navigation and bombing," and for innovations in radar technology. 
Radosh quotes Steven Usdin from his 2005 book, Engineering Communism: 
“Rosenberg’s band of amateur spies turned over detailed information on a wide range of technologies and weapon systems that hastened the Red Army’s march to Berlin, jump-started its postwar development of nuclear weapons and delivery systems, and later helped Communist troops in North Korea fight the American military to a standoff.” 
In sentencing the Rosenbergs, Judge Irving Kaufman was unsparing in his criticism: 
"I consider your crime worse than murder. Plain deliberate contemplated murder is dwarfed in magnitude by comparison with the crime you have committed. In committing the act of murder, the criminal kills only his victim. The immediate family is brought to grief and when justice is meted out the chapter is closed. But in your case, I believe your conduct in putting into the hands of the Russians the A-bomb years before our best scientists predicted Russia would perfect the bomb has already caused, in my opinion, the Communist aggression in Korea, with the resultant casualties exceeding 50,000 and who knows but that millions more of innocent people may pay the price of your treason. Indeed, by your betrayal you undoubtedly have altered the course of history to the disadvantage of our country." 
Arguably the most insidious untruth that emerged over the years from the ever expanding crazy-quilt of rationalizations generated by Rosenberg apologists was that the U.S. government executed the couple for their political ideas. This falsehood has been regurgitated over and over and over again in popular culture, unchallenged by facts. 
Leftists use the Rosenbergs' story to attack all mid-century efforts to counteract subversive activity. They deny that Americans were ever justified in worrying about Communist infiltration or that the U.S. government was justified in prosecuting Communist spies like the Rosenbergs. But the historical record has confirmed that, as John Haynes, Harvey Klehr and Alexander Vassiliev have documented in their book,  Spies: The Rise and Fall of the KGB in America, Soviet agents did in fact heavily penetrate the U.S. government, the Democratic Party, organs of culture such as Hollywood and Broadway, the news media, and the scientific research community. 
Despite the facts, however, the Left continues to falsify history and to use its playbook to discredit its political enemies with slander and lies. But in terms of the Rosenbergs, and so many other traitors who helped to advance the Communist cause, the historical facts cannot be disputed. And despite the Left's denial regarding these two traitors, one fact remains clear: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were guilty -- and they deserved what they got.
AND THEN THERE'S THE VENONA INTERCEPTS (intercepted messages going between the USSR and Communist spies here in the U.S.):

This cable documents the act that eventually led to the downfall of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg and their execution in 1953—namely, the recruitment of Ruth Greenglass, Ethel's sister-in-law. Ultimately, it was Ruth and David Greenglass who implicated the Rosenbergs, who became the only persons put to death for espionage in the U.S. during the Cold War.

The Greenglasses were ardent Communists. During the war, David was drafted and became a skilled machinist in an Army ordnance unit. He was transferred to Los Alamos in August 1944, the same month as Klaus Fuchs. There he joined a group that designed models of high-tech bomb parts, including implosion detonators for the plutonium bomb, the type eventually dropped on Nagasaki.

Ruth Greenglass told Julius Rosenberg about her husband's work. By then, Julius ("Liberal" in this cable) was heading up a sizeable group of spies working for the Soviets. As the cable suggests, Julius set about recruiting Ruth to join his group, with an eye to eventually pulling in her husband (see also November 14, 1944 cable). In this cable, Ruth's name is in clear text, because she's just being introduced to the Soviets; soon she would be given the cover name Osa ("Wasp"). In November, David wrote a letter to his wife saying he "most certainly will be glad to be part of the community that Julius and his friends have in mind." And so he was, under the cover name Kalibr ("Caliber").

Just as Klaus Fuchs' confession led the FBI to Harry Gold, so did Gold's confession guide them straight to David Greenglass. Gold told the FBI that while most of his trips to Los Alamos were to pick up goods from Fuchs, he once received materials from someone he described, according to his FBI interrogators, as "a soldier, non-commissioned, married, no children (name not recalled)."

When the FBI confronted David Greenglass, he confessed. Not one to bear up well, he also implicated not only Julius Rosenberg but also his own wife. Ruth, when questioned, corroborated her husband's statements about Julius' recruiting. Later, the Greenglasses also implicated Ethel, claiming she knew all about Julius' spying activities and even typed up espionage-related documents for him.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar Said, "Sharia is For Muslims, So If There Is a Muslim Majority State, It HAS TO BE RUN BY SHARIA"


From Jihad Watch:
“Sharia law is for Muslims. So if there is a Muslim majority state then it has to be run by Sharia,” stated basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with surprisingly little public controversy in a September 23 interview. This statement and other elements from Abdul-Jabbar’s biography only accentuated reservations concerning a Muslim president recently raised by Ben Carson, even as Jabbar in another interview dismissed Carson as “bigoted and irrational.”
GO READ THE WHOLE THING.

Yesterday, Always on Watch posted on Abdul Jabbar's mentor, who was the leader of an attack on Washington DC in which he and his Jihadists took 150 hostages.

And then there's this:

DECADES AFTER MUSLIM MURDERS IN HIS HOUSE, KAREEM SAYS PARIS ATTACKS NOT ABOUT ISLAM

More than four decades after Muslims slaughtered seven people in a home he owned, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar argues at Time that blaming Islam for the Charlie Hebdo murders says more about our ignorance of Islam than it does about the shortcomings of the religion itself. 
“Knowing that these terrorist attacks are not about religion, we have to reach a point where we stop bringing Islam into these discussions,” Abdul-Jabbar insists. “I know we aren’t there yet because much of the Western population doesn’t understand the Islamic religion.” 
Forty-two-years ago this Sunday in Washington, D.C., the property that the Hall of Fame center purchased for his Islamic teacher’s use served as a stage for terrorism every bit as shocking as the ghoulish performance at Charlie Hebdo’s Paris office. The Time article by the UCLA and Lakers great strangely never mentions the sectarian bloodbath that occurred under his roof. 
The abridged version is that a crew of Philadelphia-based Nation of Islam (NOI) members invaded the home, murdering several adults and children execution style. They drowned a newborn baby in a bathtub. In slaying the children, a ringleader reasoned that “the seed of the hypocrite is in them.” The “hypocrite,” Hamaas Abdul Khaalis, had called NOI leader Elijah Muhammad “a lying deceiver” and judged his followers criminals disgracing the name of Islam in letters imprudently sent to numerous mosques. 
Like the Charlie Hebdo murders, the assailants sought to avenge an insult to a venerated religious leader. Like the Charlie Hebdo murders, the assailants executed innocent, defenseless people, including five children ranging from a few days old to a fourth grader. Like the Charlie Hebdo murders, religion, not money or sex or power, primarily motivated the attacks.

Germany: 1000 "Refugees" Brawl Over "Separate Accomodations" - 14 Police Injured - "It is an Illusion to Believe They Don't Bring Their Conflicts, Their Religions Into Our Country"

I really have a hard time seeing how this supposed "Refugge" crisis is not going to be the end of the West.

The people are going to keep coming until Europe puts a stop to it.

But Europe shows no signs of having the will to do so.

So the people will just keep coming. Hundreds of thousands will turn into millions will turn into tens of millions.

Clock Boy Ahmed Mohamed ‘Racked Up Weeks Of Suspensions’ Prior To Clock Incident


From the Blaze***:
Before he was put in handcuffs for bringing a “homemade” clock to school and became an overnight celebrity, Ahmed Mohamed “racked up weeks of suspensions” and clashed with authority while in middle school, the Dallas Morning News reported. 
Ahmed was arrested Monday at his school after a teacher thought a homemade clock he built was a bomb. He remains suspended and said he will not return to classes at MacArthur High School. (AP/LM Otero) 
While attending Sam Houston Middle School in Irving, Texas, Mohamed “mastered electronics and English, once built a remote control to prank the classroom projector and bragged of reciting his First Amendment rights in the principal’s office,” according to the report. Despite rumors about the 14-year-old’s past disciplinary problems, 
Mohamed’s status as a minor has prevented the Irving Independent School District from speaking out on the matter.

Angela Merkel Caught On Hot Mic With Mark Zuckerberg Agreeing To Curtail Anti-Immigrant Posts On Facebook


Fuck Mark Zuckerberg! And fuck Angela Merkel. Give me Liberty or give me death.

And, to paraphrase Patton, No one ever won a war by dying for his side. You win a war by making the other dumb bastard die for his side.

As I said, Give me Liberty or give me ...

Fuck Mark Zuckerberg.

From CNBC:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel was overheard confronting Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over incendiary posts on the social network, Bloomberg reported on Sunday, amid complaints from her government about anti-immigrant posts in the midst of Europe’s refugee crisis.   
On the sidelines of a United Nations luncheon on Saturday, Merkel was caught on a hot mic pressing Zuckerberg about social media posts about the wave of Syrian refugees entering Germany, the publication reported. 
The Facebook CEO was overheard responding that “we need to do some work” on curtailing anti-immigrant posts about the refugee crisis. 
“Are you working on this?” Merkel asked in English, to which Zuckerberg replied in the affirmative before the transmission was disrupted.

NYPost: New York City bigwigs can’t get enough of ‘terror’ clock kid


NYPost: New York City bigwigs can’t get enough of ‘terror’ clock kid
The Muslim clock kid who was arrested in Texas after making a timepiece that was mistaken for a bomb was treated like a celebrity during a visit to City Hall on Monday. 
“In New York! So awesome!!!” Texas science whiz Ahmed Mohamed, 14, tweeted this week as his family visited the Big Apple. 
Ahmed received a proclamation from Public Advocate Letitia James, who called him a role model and let him sit in her chair in the council chambers. 
Ahmed also met Mayor Bill de Blasio, who he said told him, “Keep doing what you’re doing.” 
The teen flashed a wide smile as he posed for photos in the ornate chair, known by pols as the “Captain America” chair for its flamboyant upholstering, which resembles the superhero’s shield. 
“Never stop doing dreaming & being you,” James tweeted. 
Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito took the boy and his family on a little tour of City Hall, and Comptroller Scott Stringer presented him with a framed commendation. 
“All students should engage w/ science and technology – Ahmed Mohamed is a role model for all NYers,” Stringer tweeted afterward. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams was also enthusiastic. 
“I’m thrilled to welcome @ItsAhmedMohamed & his love of #science to NYC,” Adams tweeted after meeting the teen outside City Hall. 
“I’ll buy one of his clocks!”

States Requiring Fed Enforcement Agencies to Get Warrant to Use STINGRAY Eavesdropping Devices
NYT
Covert Electronic Surveillance Prompts Calls for TransparencyLaw enforcement officials across the United States have become enamored of the StingRay, an electronic surveillance device that can covertly track criminal suspects and is being used with little public disclosure and often under uncertain legal authority. Now, though, some states are pushing back, and are requiring the police to get a court order and local consent before turning to the high-tech tool.
Washington, Utah and Virginia recently approved laws requiring court orders for the use of such cell-site simulators by state and local police officers. California lawmakers this month approved such legislation by a wide margin. The California law would also require police agencies to get City Council approval before employing the devices, and to disclose on an agency website that they use the technology. Similar bills have been introduced in Texas and in Congress.
In Maryland, defense lawyers are re-examining thousands of cases to determine if the police have been deploying the technology legally.
“The public has finally become aware of what sorts of technologies are being used, and they are asking themselves, ‘Do we want to pay for this?’ and second, ‘What are the costs of this to our civil liberties?’ ” said Neil Richards, a law professor at Washington University in St. Louis who studies privacy issues. “People do care about privacy. And it is reassuring that the system is working the way it’s supposed to — instead of law enforcement just saying, ‘The rules have changed when it comes to digital.’ ”
StingRays, one of several brands of such devices, are about the size of a suitcase. They mimic cellphone towers by forcing mobile phones in their vicinity to connect to the device, which allows the police to find the person with the phone.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement officials say the devices are critical in locating dangerous criminal suspects. But the devices, which cost as much as $500,000, also collect data from all other cellphones in the area, whether those phones are on or off, without notifying phone users.

Now, WHY OH WHY, would Putin build an air defense bubble over Syria?

The USA will commit NO ACT (at least until 1/17), so who is he protecting Syria from now?
HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM ????????
Russian President Vladimir Putin is concerned about Israel’s repeated attacks in Syria, he said, after  talking for an hour and-a-half with President Barack Obama early Tuesday, Sept. 29, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York. Putin agreed that Israel’s security concerns must be taken into account in Syria, but he was worried by the IDF’s periodic strikes on positions in the embattled territory.
Sunday night, the IDF hit Syrian military targets with powerful Tamuz artillery rockets after two errant Syrian rockets landed on the Golan.

Top NATO general: Russians starting to build air defense bubble over Syria

While Russia’s stated goal in moving into Syria is to fight the Islamic State, NATO’s top commander believes Russia’s new presence includes the first pieces of an intricate layer of defensive systems deployed to hinder U.S. and allied operations in the region.
“As we see the very capable air defense [systems] beginning to show up in Syria, we’re a little worried about another A2/AD bubble being created in the eastern Mediterranean,” said Breedlove to an audience at the German Marshall Fund Monday.
Breedlove went on to suggest that Russia’s presence in Syria had little to do with fighting the Islamic State and a lot to do with propping up Syrian President Bashir al-Assad, adding that the sophisticated air defense systems and other pieces of equipment—including aircraft designed for an air-to-air role—was a clear indicator of Russia’s intentions.
“These very sophisticated air defense capabilities are not about [the Islamic State], they’re about something else,” said Breedlove. “High on Mr. Putin’s list in Syria is preserving the regime against those that are putting pressure on the regime and against those that they see who might be supporting those putting pressure on the regime.”
IVAN may lose and get beat, but IVAN is always ALL IN, or IVAN doesn’t care.
Get ready to see GROUND, THAT’S what the A2/AD is for.

ISIS planning ‘nuclear tsunami’


From the Washington Times***:
Nuclear annihilation across the globe. This is what a German reporter who successfully embedded with the Islamic State says the terror group is planning. 
Jurgen Todenhofer released his findings in a book titled “Inside IS - Ten Days in the Islamic State,” reports the UK’s Daily Express. 
“The terrorists plan on killing several hundred million people. The west is drastically underestimating the power of ISIS. ISIS intends to get its hands on nuclear weapons,” says Todenhofer, calling the group a “nuclear tsunami preparing the largest religious cleansing in history.” 
“They now control land greater in size than the United Kingdom and are supported by an almost ecstatic enthusiasm the like of which I’ve never encountered before in a war zone. Every day hundreds of willing fighters from all over the world come. 
They are the most brutal and most dangerous enemy I have ever seen in my life. I don’t see anyone who has a real chance to stop them. Only Arabs can stop IS. I came back very pessimistic.”

Germany Segregating Christians As Migrant Violence Escalates


Christian migrants in German asylum centres are living under persistent threat, with many fearing for their lives as the hardline Sunni majority within the migrant population attempts to enforce Sharia law in their new host nation. The situation is so bad that Christians claim they live like “prisoners” in Germany, and some have even returned to Middle East.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar's Spiritual Mentor

(One of the advantages of being as old as I am is the ability to dredge up from my memory something from decades ago, then research the web to confirm my recollections. In fact, just the other day, I was discussing the Hanafi Siege with Mr. AOW. Then, lo, I found a connection of that event with one of the present media darlings.)

Lately, basketball phenom, Sunni Muslim, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's choice of U.S. global cultural ambassador in 2012 Kareem Abdul Jabbar has been yammering about Islam, "the religion of peace."

He has also been slamming Ben Carson for the latter's recent statements about shari'a law.

Let's take a look at Kareem Abdul Jabbar's spiritual mentor Hamaas Abdul Khaalis.

Hamaas Abdul Khaalis led a group of gunmen from D.C.'s Hanafi Muslim community who stormed three buildings in the city and took hostages in 1977. (AP photo)

From The Hanafi Siege of 1977 (emphases mine):
When Pierre L’Enfant designed the city of Washington, he structured the wide boulevards and traffic circles so that it could not be easily tied up by violence, as Paris had been during the French Revolution. Yesterday, it was obvious that L’Enfant failed.[1]
So read the Washington Post on the morning of March 10, 1977. But traffic was the least of Washington’s concerns that day.

The previous afternoon, twelve armed Hanafi Muslim gunmen under the leadership of Hamaas Abdul Khaalis had stormed three different buildings in the city and taken nearly 150 hostages. The ordeal started at lunchtime at the B’nai B’rith headquarters on Rhode Island Ave. NW. About an hour later the group raided the Islamic Center of Washington on Massachusetts Ave. and then the District Building at Judiciary Square.

Several captives at B’nai B’rith were beaten and stabbed by captors who brandished machetes and guns. At the District Building, the gunmen killed WHUR reporter Maurice Williams and shot three others, including then-and-again city councilman Marion Barry.

With hostages corralled across the city, authorities struggled to restore order. Meanwhile, the aggressors promised more violence if their wishes were not met. As one of the gunmen at the Islamic Center told the Washington Post, “Everything’s fine. We’re all having coffee and tea and a nice chat. But heads will roll and people will die unless we get our demands.”[2]

So, what were the demands, exactly?

Well, first off, the group wanted to halt the release of the film, Mohammed, Messenger of God (also called The Message), which was set to premiere in New York and Los Angeles. As orthodox Muslims, the Hanafis objected to any pictorial representation of the prophet Mohammed (or suggestion thereof through shadows or artistic camera work). As Khaalis told reporters, “We have told this government that that picture is not to play in this country, that we will not stand for the mockery of our prophet and our Lord Allah, not while we live. Some Muslims must stand up.”[3] (Interestingly, the film did not actually portray the prophet.)...
Read the rest HERE.

What is it with Muslims wanting to ban movies and going ballistic when they can't get their way? Hmmmmm?

And how is it that nobody in the media is calling on Kareem Abdul Jabbar to discuss that siege and his spiritual mentor's part in that siege? Instead, the media are fawning all over Kareen Abdul Jabbar as he criticizes Ben Carson for speaking the truth about Islam.

The dhimmitude of Paul Levitz

Another desecration DC's modern staff is now performing on their universe is with their new, very PC take on Dr. Fate: that the character now wearing the costume is apparently a Muslim, and that only makes the New 52 even more repellent:
The new Doctor Fate book is giving us a Muslim Egyptian-American 20-something in the title role, which is pretty exciting. The preview not only lets us into Khalid “Kent” Nassor’s world as he deals with med school looming over his head, but also sets up the larger conflict of a potential flood that could destroy civilization. The art is enjoyable (like Black Canary, it pushes away from the house style) and I’m already intrigued by the plot.
Sounds like yet another ignoramus who's predisposed to liking their directions no matter how tasteless. And they even just had to make the current character's name a deliberate takeoff of Kent Nelson's name. As for the art they speak of, it looked very dull and unappealing.

Levitz was interviewed by 13th Dimension, and he tried downplaying the Islamic angle:
To me it makes a world of sense that Doctor Fate — or, more precisely, Khalid — is a Muslim hero. Not everyone sees it that way, unfortunately, so I do want to address the 800-pound gorilla: How much do you think that has affected the sales of the book?

Is he Muslim? He’s the son of an Egyptian father and an American mother, and until you read issue #4, you won’t know much about how he sees his religious heritage. The immigrant journey to assimilation usually has some interesting twists for attitudes towards religion, and we’ll see where this all takes Khalid.
Even if he's not an adherent to Islam, there's no chance they'll ever speak negatively about the Religion of Peace here. Besides, this was one of the same men who, when he was still more of an executive for DC, saw to it that they'd collaborate on a project with the Kuwaiti propagandist who published "The 99". The part about attitudes actually gives more reason to worry than it does to assure otherwise.

And Levitz also recently gave an interview to Newsarama about what they're doing with the current protagonist now, and said:
Nrama: Anything else you want to tell readers about what's coming up in Doctor Fate?

Levitz: Much more, I hope, including some world politics, a bit of perspective on religion (how exactly does a self-proclaimed but obviously powerful Egyptian 'god' fit in a religion like Islam, for example), and so much more if we get the chance.

The book's gotten good reviews and critical buzz – I hope your readers will help spread the word, and push the title to where it can sustain a fairly long run. It's hard to launch a non-major-franchise hero these days, and we can use all the magic your powers can provide.
Any realist can guess positive reviews of this new take were deliberate; the medium does suffer from the same kind of corruption now that video games do. Levitz, who only confirms with that interview something's rotten here, used to be a very decent, reliable writer in the 70s and 80s, but since the mid-90s has become a pure disaster and a joke when he took up the job of a publisher. I've had to take his earlier work with a grain of salt, as a result, much like with Gerry Conway. He's also making the mistake of selling the book based on its starring a "non-major-franchise" character, instead of marketing it based on the merits of his writing, which haven't been so good in a long time, or, he's lost whatever talent he once had, not unlike Chris Claremont, whose own writing efforts of the past decade weren't inspiring.

We Are Importing Our Own Genocide


With regard to the massive "migration" of Muslims, out of their homelands in the Middle Easte, and onto the turf of the Western World,

BYE BYE BOEHNER, and now what are we prepared to do?

So the tipping point turns out to have been over funding SOME KIND of market for parts of aborted fetuses.

If the Republicans want to WIN, then they should be prepared AS WELL to fund the contraceptive side of what Planned Parenthood did.

But never mind that.


The upshot of what is happening is that the Republican party base has HAD IT and is ready to go 3rd party or stay home en masse and WATCH the nation elect another D and see FURTHER disasters rather than elect another Mitch McConnell type president who is just another drone of the political class.

Nothing will be changed that way. DEAD END.

Goldwater got the Republican clock cleaned (perhaps partly as the result of a masterfully conceived commercial aired ONCE), but the result was Ronald Reagan.

The Republican base is signaling they would rather go this route than continue on the 5 mph train wreck we see in front of us engineered by those like Rove, McConnell and others whose knack for going along to get along and get some for their own is FAR GREATER than their need, and belief in serving the nation by sticking a flag in the ground on SOMETHING, LIKE A MARKET FOR DEAD FETUSES.

A MARKET FOR DEAD FETUSES.

A MARKET FOR DEAD FETUSES.

Abortion has its place and should be legal.

THIS AIN’T THAT, just as BORDER SECURITY AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT ILLEGALS ALREADY HERE ARE 2 SEPARATE THINGS.

Mr. McConnell has already said he will not permit a shutdown over something so trivial.

He is telling us all he knows better than our conscience, what is good for us.

I always thought that was the province of some other party.

But apparently with the current leadership, THERE’S NO DIFFERNCE

No surprise on Quran/Sharia vs Constitution, Ben, FINE, but you can’t be president with these views

UPDATE at BOTTOM

Sharia Law should supersede the U.S. Constitution, said some Muslims when surveyed by Fox News this week.
“The U.S. Constitution comes from people. Sharia Law comes from Allah,” said one man responding to Fox News’ David Webb. “The Constitution governs this country. Sharia Law governs the whole world. Of course it is above.”
Webb asked members of a New York City-based Islamic cultural center whether Sharia Law was above the Constitution. Many men replied simply, “Yes.” A smaller number disagreed without further elaboration.
One answered, “No, but I think the Sharia law is made by God, by Allah. And the Constitution is made by people, so it’s not the same.”
“Sharia law is completely different than the United States Constitution,” said another man. “As a Muslim, you practice Islamic law, as a Muslim. The United States Constitution, as a citizen, I respect the Constitution, nothing to do with Sharia law. In Muslim countries, Sharia Law is allowed. Other countries? No, you have to respect the Constitution.”
Others spoke of Sharia Law protecting Muslims and their “dignity.”
This week, the Center for Security Policy released a poll reporting that of all Muslims surveyed, 51% agreed that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Sharia.”
The Center also reported that nearly a quarter of the Muslims polled believed that, “It is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed.”
Sharia Law has become a flash-point for controversy this week, following comments made Sunday by Republican presidential candidate, Ben Carson. Carson said that he would not support a Muslim for president, and that Sharia Law was fundamentally incompatible with the Constitution.
Carson has stood by his words, and has tried to clarify them for the media.

UPDATE:
Jake Tapper now of CNN, ex of ABC, who was always PERCEIVED as toward the center PROVES his ignorance of critical issues, as he tries to prove Carson is not presidentially PC:

Ben Carson’s campaign manager literally shut down a CNN interview on Sunday as anchor Jake Tapper grilled the Republican presidential candidate on his views on Muslims.
CNNCNN
Asked about his recent remark that he wouldn’t “advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” Carson clarified his statement by saying he would “have problems with somebody who embraced all the doctrines associated with Islam.”
“If they are not willing to reject Sharia and all the portions of it that are talked about in the Quran — if they are not willing to reject that, and subject that to American values and the Constitution, then of course, I would [have problems],” Carson said.
He also declined to backtrack when CNN’s Jake Tapper asked if he could’ve made his statements on Islam any clearer.
“You seem to be signing out Muslims as individuals who automatically, as a knee-jerk, would put their religion ahead of the country,” Tapper said to Carson. “I think that offended a lot of people, including a lot of patriotic Muslims.”
Growing more frustrated, Carson suggested the “media” think his comments are more newsworthy than the American people.
“You’re an African-American. You know what it’s like for people to make false assumptions about you,” Tapper said. “And you seem to be doing the same thing with Muslims. … You’re assuming that Muslim Americans put their religion ahead of the country.”
“I’m assuming that if you accept all the tenets of Islam that you would have a very difficult time abiding under the Constitution of the United States,” Carson shot back.
Immediately after Carson’s answer, a voice of Carson’s campaign manager could be heard off camera stating, “This interview is over.”

I don't know WHY  the manager shut this down.
The truth is so dangerous?
The truth is so unpopular?
The TRUTH cannot win?
The TRUTH cannot be ALLOWED to win?
The TRUTH is radical?

If you believe the Quran is perfect and immutable, you CANNOT allow the first amendment of the Constitution to stand if you are in charge.

Fight those who believe not in God nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth , (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”  9:29

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

I have no issue with Muslims who are here and believe this, and render unto caeser, etc, while wishing the USA could accept what is written, and accept that it just cannot be that way.

But there is a fundamental problem, OBVIOUSLY, in those people serving the govt and the people (who you will have been ordered to fight until they accept Allah, and pay the tax and feel subdued).

Now perhaps there are those who like politicians that believe abortion is murder, will never the less obey the law, and SCOTUS.

Let them SAY SO.

If you are born into Islam and you believe the PEOPLE are sovereign, congrats and welcome. You're one of us in  EVERY qualification (and an apostate to many muslims).

This is the obvious divide.

Either the people are sovereign in the USA or they are not.

This is the test.

DallasNews: Before Ahmed’s fame: fantastic inventions


DallasNews: Before Ahmed’s fame: fantastic inventions and a fight with authority which reveals this is a precocious kid with a history of disruptive incidents resulting in detentions and eventual suspension from school ...a few choice quotes:

"When a seemingly possessed projector kept shutting off midlecture, young boys’ snickers surrounded Ahmed’s desk, where he sat with a hand-built remote control in his lap.

Talkative to a point of disruption to class, Ahmed..."...tried to get out of detention by reciting the First Amendment in the principal’s office. ... While his discipline record is confidential and his father didn’t want to discuss it, the file was thick by some accounts.

Ahmed said he was suspended for several weeks in sixth grade. A family friend, Anthony Bond, said the boy and a cousin were blowing soap bubbles in the bathroom, and the school overreacted.


Color me skeptical...blowing bubbles doesn't result in multiple week suspensions. I'd like to know more ...perhaps they tried to flush the soap and created an expensive mess to clean up?

"Ahmed blamed an administrator at the school who, Bond wrote, the boy felt “has been terrorizing him since the 6th grade” — hindering him from praying in school and unfairly punishing him." ... "Bond’s letter called the boy’s treatment “Muslim bashing”


"Bertha Whatley, who was Irving ISD’s attorney last year, said “high-level” officials at the district reviewed Bond’s letter. Bond said the principal overturned the suspension after meeting with Ahmed".


"...“I told you one day I’m going to be — and you told me yourself — I’m going to be really big on the Internet one day,” Ahmed said."

*****appears the kid is easily manipulated and ill advised about media celebrity. Any trauma was self inflicted and encouraged by the people he trusted most.

UK: Two "Teens" Arrested Over Yesterday's Fire At Western Europe's Largest Mosque

The Muslims Are Restless

Look, I can almost guarantee you that if all we learn about these two "teens" is that they are "teens", that means THEY ARE MUSLIMS.

Just as I suspected.

The Mosque is an Ahmadiyya Mosque. Most Muslims hate the Ahmadiayya.

From AFP:
London (AFP) - Two teenagers were arrested Sunday over a blaze at a London mosque which claims to be the largest in western Europe. Ten fire trucks were sent to fight the blaze which broke out Saturday at the Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden, southwest London. The smoke could be seen across the city. 
Two boys aged 16 and 14 have been arrested on suspicion of arson and remain in custody at a south London police station, Scotland Yard police headquarters said.  
The fire affected around half of the ground floor, part of the first floor and a section of the roof. London Fire Brigade said the blaze had hit administration buildings and the "mosque itself is thankfully unaffected." 
The mosque was built for the Ahmadiyya Muslim community to provide people with a meeting place and venue to hold social religious events.

Cold Anger



From the Conservative Treehouse:
There’s a new meme being proclaimed from the executive suites of Park Row. Encapsulated it says: “Donald Trump’s supporters are angry“. 
Yeah, so? 
At this point, if you are on a team thinking this entire assembly of our union is headed in the right direction… you might want to revisit your proximity to the ballpark. If you look around at the passing landscape you’ll find your autopilot has taken you, not just out of the city, but out of the state the ballpark is located in….. 
There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior. Cold Anger does not need to go to violence. For those who carry it, no conversation is needed. You cannot poll or measure it; and even those who carry it avoid discussion. And that decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.   
Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful. 
Cold Anger absorbs betrayal silently, often prudently. 
We’ve watched the shooting of cops, and the parades which follow, absorbing. 
Cold Anger takes notice of the liars, even from a great distance – seemingly invisible to the mob. 
Cold Anger will still hold open the door for the parade goer. Mannerly.
Cold Anger evidenced is more severe because it is more strategic.

Updated NASA Data: Global Warming Not Causing Any Polar Ice Retreat


From Forbes:
Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. 
The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede. 
The timing of the 1979 NASA satellite instrument launch could not have been better for global warming alarmists. The late 1970s marked the end of a 30-year cooling trend. 
As a result, the polar ice caps were quite likely more extensive than they had been since at least the 1920s. Nevertheless, this abnormally extensive 1979 polar ice extent would appear to be the “normal” baseline when comparing post-1979 polar ice extent. 
Updated NASA satellite data show the polar ice caps remained at approximately their 1979 extent until the middle of the last decade. 
Beginning in 2005, however, polar ice modestly receded for several years. By 2012, polar sea ice had receded by approximately 10 percent from 1979 measurements. (Total polar ice area – factoring in both sea and land ice – had receded by much less than 10 percent, but alarmists focused on the sea ice loss as “proof” of a global warming crisis.) 
A 10-percent decline in polar sea ice is not very remarkable, especially considering the 1979 baseline was abnormally high anyway. 
Regardless, global warming activists and a compliant news media frequently and vociferously claimed the modest polar ice cap retreat was a sign of impending catastrophe. 
Al Gore even predicted the Arctic ice cap could completely disappear by 2014. 
In late 2012, however, polar ice dramatically rebounded and quickly surpassed the post-1979 average. Ever since, the polar ice caps have been at a greater average extent than the post-1979 mean.
Look what Global Warming hath wrought. Cavemen, frozen for millions of years, are thawing out the world over ,and going to law school, and winning lawsuits which are bankrupting our metropoli:

Egyptian President, al-Sisi, Says, "Expand Peace With Israel to More Arab Countries


From Israel National News***:
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has called on the Middle East region to unite against terrorism as well as invest in efforts to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 
In a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press on Saturday night, Sisi said all countries in the region needed to cooperate to vanquish the intensifying terrorist threat that has led to a "ferocious war" in Egypt. 
Sisi warned countries faced "sliding into failure" if the Islamic State terror group were not defeated, adding that Egypt's own military needed to be "augmented" to combat ISIS-affiliated terrorists in Sinai. 
Egypt's President then urged countries in the region to renew efforts to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict via a two-state solution. 
According to Sisi, Egypt's nearly 40-year-peace with the Jewish state should be expanded to more Arab countries in the region. 
Resolving the conflict, Sisi added, could "change the face of the region and...bring about enormous improvement to the situation...I'm optimistic by nature and I say that there is a great opportunity."

EU Demands Hungary Destroy Itself or Leave The EU

A Herd of "Migrants" Descends Upon Europe

From the Vlad Tepes Blog:
As Hungarians continue to resist EU-imposed quotas on how many migrants they should accept, French President François Hollande told Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban: 
“States that don’t respect European values should ask if they belong within the EU,” according to The Times. 
His attack comes as Orban accused German Chancellor Angela Merkel of “moral imperialism” for helping impose the quotas on Europe. 
“We are Hungarians — we cannot think with German minds,” Mr Orban said, adding: “Hungary should have the right to control the impact of a mass migration. The Hungarian people don’t want this.” 
Meanwhile, Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico has vowed to break the new EU law, saying that his country will turn away 800 migrants due to be sent from Italy and Greece. “Slovakia is not going to respect mandatory quotas,” he said.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

Germany in a state of SIEGE: Merkel was cheered when she opened the floodgates to migrants. Now, with gangs of men roaming the streets and young German women being told to cover up, the mood's changing

ISIS butchers leave Christian martyrs nailed to crosses

Lord Weidenfeld

From the Express:
IT WAS only when the gates of the Nazi death camps were thrown open that the industrial scale of Hitler’s killing became known. Western diplomats had received scattered information about Nazi massacres of Jewish people and “undesirables” in occupied Poland and Russia but it was difficult to confirm.   
Yet just 70 years since the end of the Second World War, a genocide is taking place once again, this time against Christians. 
Scores have already been murdered by Islamic State and thousands forced to leave ancient Christian communities in northeastern Syria and western Iraq as the extremists demand they either convert to Islam, pay an extortionate rate of tax or face execution. Some have even been crucified. 
Despite concerns being raised by religious leaders including the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the plight of Christian refugees is largely being ignored by the western world. Now a charity, which is being funded by Jewish peer George Weidenfeld, who escaped Nazi-occupied Austria with the help of British Christians, is taking matters into its own hands by mounting a series of rescue missions to save the Syrian Christians. 
Lord Weidenfeld, who was smuggled to safety by Quakers at the age of five, said: “I have a debt to repay.” 
So far the charity, the Barnabas Fund, has liberated 158 Christians from Syria and found them a new home in Poland. 
Its founder and international director Patrick Sookhdeo has recently returned from a visit to eastern Europe, where he was seeking refuge for the hundreds of thousands of Syrian Christians who continue to live under the tyranny of IS.

“Considering that migrants cannot afford to rent new properties… moves must be initiated in which higher income households purchase or build more expensive accommodations for themselves in order to free up the less expensive housing for migrants.”

The Berlin Institute for Urban Development, the Housing Industry and Loan Associations
It’s not racism, xenophobia, or nationalistic Fascism, it’s the PHYSICS of unplanned MIGRATIONS (Teutones, Ambrones, and the Cimbri) …IRONIC, but never the less, might it have been CHEAPER and less painful in ended and destroyed lives if we had just ACTED when Assad crossed the so called ‘RED LINE’ and wiped out but the Alawite freaks of Assad’s inarguable fascism, and the salafi freaks of from the Sunni side of the fence?
I think I was wrong that we had no national interest there.
On this one, Mr. Graham and Mr, McCain appear to have been right that we needed to act, but let’s face it, there ARE NO MODERATES who will act to fill n the vacuum. The best realistic outcome appears to be a Sisi.


Telegraph UK:

German woman threatened with eviction to make way for refugees
A 51-year-old German woman is being evicted from her home of 16 years to make way for refugees, with shelters already full across the country
A woman in Germany is being evicted from her home of 16 years to make way for asylum-seekers, amid growing concerns over how Germany will find accommodation for the hundreds of thousands of refugees flooding into the country.
Bettina Halbey, a 51-year-old nurse, has lived alone in her flat in the small western German town of Nieheim since her children grew up.
On September 1, she received a letter from her landlord, the local municipality, telling her the building was being turned into a refugee shelter and she had until next May to leave.
“I was completely taken aback,” Ms Halbey told Welt newspaper. “I find it impossible to describe how the city has treated me.”

Gatestone Institute:
  • Hamburg city officials say that owners of vacant real estate have refused to make their property available to the city on a voluntary basis, and thus the city should be given the right to take it by force.
  • “The proposed confiscation of private land and buildings is a massive attack on the property rights of the citizens of Hamburg. It amounts to an expropriation by the state [and a] "law of intimidation.” — André Trepoll, Christian Democratic Union.
  • “If a property is confiscated… a lawsuit to determine the legality of the confiscation can only be resolved after the fact. But the accommodation would succeed in any event.” — Tübingen Mayor Boris Palmer.
  • Officials in North Rhine-Westphalia seized a private resort in the town of Olpe to provide housing for up to 400 migrants
With existing shelters filled to capacity, federal, state and local authorities are now using legally and morally dubious measures — including the expropriation of private property and the eviction of German citizens from their homes — to make room for the newcomers.German taxpayers are also being obliged to make colossal economic sacrifices to accommodate the influx of migrants, many of whom have no prospect of ever finding a job in the country. Sustaining the 800,000 migrants and refugees who are expected to arrive in Germany in 2015 will cost taxpayers at least at least 11 billion euros ($12 billion) a year for years to come.As the migration crisis intensifies, and Germans are waking up to the sheer scale of the economic, financial and social costs they will expected to bear in the years ahead, anger is brewing.In Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, municipal officials on September 23 introduced an audacious bill in the local parliament (Hamburgische Bürgerschaft) that would allow the city to seize vacant commercial real estate (office buildings and land) and use it to house migrants.City officials argue the measure is necessary because more than 400 new migrants are arriving in Hamburg each day and all the existing refugee shelters are full. They say that owners of vacant real estate have refused to make their property available to the city on a voluntary basis, and thus the city should be given the right to take it by force.
