The Heart of Darkness


Mo says convert to Islam or die

 

Justin Smith makes a very good case showing Obama and other deceived politically correct American leaders (Left, Center and Right) are full of baloney when it comes to the assertion that ‘Islam is peace’.

The Heart of Darkness

 

By Justin O. Smith

Islam is violent and repressive, and it is the “heart of darkness” at the center of the Islamic State’s inspiration and motivation, despite Barack Obama’s assertions in September 10th’s address to the nation that the Islamic State “is not Islamic” and that “no religion condones the killing of innocents.” Violence is an integral part of Islamic doctrine, following the example set by its prophet Mohammed, and in the name of Islam and Allah, Muslims have been murdering innocents, since 656 AD.

 

Six hundred years after Mohammed, one of Islam’s most respected scholars, Ibn Khuldan wrote ‘Muqaddimah’ (Introduction to History), which explained: “In the Muslim community, the holy war is religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and [the obligation to] convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or force.”

 

Like most good Muslims, Khaldun’s inspiration came from ‘The Verse of the Sword’, Sura 9:5, “revealed” towards the end of Mohammed’s life, as well as similar themes previous to Sura 9:

 

Sura 9:5__ “…kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them … But if they repent and perform As-Salat/ Iqamat-as-Salat [the Islamic ritual prayers], then leave their way free…” Also Sura 9:33__ “It is He [Allah] Who has sent His Messenger [Mohammed] with guidance and the religion of truth [Islam], to make it superior over all religions…”

 

The Hindu Kush, seventy-five thousand square miles between Afghanistan and Pakistan, was populated by Hindus until approximately 1000 AD and the Muslim invasions. An estimated 60 million Hindus were murdered by Muslims over a thousand year reign, and Hindu Kush is the Muslim name for the region. It means “Hindu Killer”.

 

Now today, the majority of the Muslim community worldwide, including the U.S., does not completely frown on their “holy warriors” in the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Jaamat e-Islami and any other terror group one cares to mention, for fear of being called heretics or apostates themselves. The murderous “holy warriors” are following a literal interpretation of Koranic scripture, without omissions, innovation or revision. By contrast, heretical views deviate from doctrine.

 

The 2013 PEW Poll of the Muslim World shows that the majority of Muslims, in several countries, support the death penalty for Muslims who leave Islam, including Malaysia (58%), Egypt (88%), Jordan (83%), Afghanistan (79%), Gaza and the West Bank (62%) and Pakistan (75%); in 2006, a poll for ‘The Sunday Telegraph’ found 40% of British Muslims wanted Sharia Law in the UK and 20% supported the 7/7 bombers. And alarmingly, in 2011 nineteen percent of American Muslims stated they viewed Al Qaeda favorably, while a new poll shows 16% of the French population view the Islamic State favorably.

 

Are you beginning to see a pattern here?

Logical minded Americans were not fooled by the big lie Obama delivered before the United Nations on September 24th, when he spoke of Islam’s “great tradition that stands for … the dignity of life, not murder”. Americans see a significant number of Muslims still support Sharia Law, slavery, rape and Islamic inspired violence and murder in this 21st century, and rather than “a religion of peace”, Islam always has been and always will be an ideology of violence and conquest.

 

Don’t get me wrong. I am thankful for the many Muslims who simply adhere to the first early peaceful verses of the Koran, but let’s not allow that to dissuade us from seeing and revealing the fact that Islam was propagated through violence, staying with Mohammed’s teachings, and it is still utilizing violence today. This can clearly be seen by examining the teachings of Islam, the daily news reports and practically any good, scholarly history book.

 

One problem in Islamic tradition, affirmed by many scholars, is the doctrine of abrogation, which states that later revelation to Mohammed supersedes prior revelation. And the Koranic verses ordering Muslims to fight and slay infidels, Christians and Jews came after those admonishing Muslims to live with non-believers in peace and without religious compulsion.

 

As Obama spoke before the UN, he called on the Islamic nations and their leaders to address the spread of “extremism”, full well knowing that he was speaking to the very advocates of Wahabbist fundamentalism, other Islamic orthodoxies and proponents of inflexible, intolerant Islamic scholars, the likes of Sayyid Qutb. Saudi Arabia and Qatar, for example, have supported terrorism and financed the spread of Wahabbism and Qutb’s Islamic philosophy globally, including in America, for decades.

 

And now Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, the United Emirates and several others, who helped create, train and fund the Islamic State, are screaming for the U.S. and the West to end the vicious advance of the Islamic State. They look to destroy the Islamic State, only because they can no longer control its self-appointed “caliph”, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has announced his intentions to take Mecca and Medina; so, it is fear of losing their power and their regimes that motivates them, not any disagreement with the Islamic State’s implementation of jihad and the violent doctrines of Islam.

 

What about the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hezbollah, which means “the party of Allah”, and Hamas, which means “Islamic Resistance Movement”? Does Obama deem these Islamic entities “not Islamic” too?

 

As Obama appealed to young Muslims to follow their “great tradition [Islam] that stands for education … innovation, not destruction”, he must have intentionally forgotten some of the other traditions of Islam. The recent spate of beheadings of Westerners by the Islamic State is only the old made new again, and although horrible beyond belief, they actually pale in comparison to the heinous atrocities committed in the name of Allah across the centuries. Three thousand Catholic nuns were raped at the Church of St Sophia during the sacking of Constantinople in 1453, and many other women and children were simply torn to pieces.

 

Hadith 107:13_ It was shown the Prophet said, “Allah wrote everything we need to know about Ihsan [kindness] so if you kill, perfect your killing and if you slaughter, perfect your slaughter, perfect your slaughter and sharpen your blade and comfort your sacrifice.”

 

Koran 8:12 “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

 

Millions of devout fundamentalist orthodox Muslims, devout in the manner of Osama bin Laden_ Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, are making preparations and have already been waging a divinely endorsed war against Europe, America and Israel. And, rather than continue against all reason and, in the light of Islam’s sacred texts, to propagate the lie that “Islam is peace”, which is placing America within a quagmire of reoccurring expansionist jihad, this administration and future administrations must cut all funding to all Islamic nations and acknowledge that “extremism” and violence are the basis of Islam, if America is to win the future war against Islam.

M. Alexander: Islamic Jihad — Target America


Islam- religion of peace

Twenty-five percent of Islam is considered Radical (See Also HERE) in the 21st century. Radical Muslims do indeed in the concept of violent jihad as a method of spreading Islam. AND the only evolution today from violent jihad is the development of a deceptive Stealth Jihad against the West and the USA in particular. Mark Alexander takes on this issue in his Patriot Post article entitled “Islamic Jihad – Target America”.

Islamic Jihad — Target America

Should You Be Concerned?

 

By Mark Alexander

Sep. 24, 2014

The Patriot Post

 

“The establishment of civil and religious liberty was the Motive which induced me to the Field.” –George Washington (1783)

 

Despite assurances to the contrary from our nation’s commander in chief, it turns out that global Jihad is thriving. And it constitutes a greater threat to our nation’s security today than at any time in history.

 

Should you be concerned?

 

Of course, the answer is “yes,” but with qualification.

 

The most imminent domestic threat to your life and property, statistically, emanates from the sociopathic drug/gang culture, which continues to metastasize on urban poverty plantations and is now spilling into suburban and rural communities. That threat has been cultivated for the last five decades by ruinous political and social policies that were, ostensibly, enacted to eradicate the poverty those policies institutionalized.

 

That notwithstanding, the elevated threat to your life from Islamic extremists should be a concern – not because the probability of being an individual victim of an Islamist assault will soon be higher than the drug/gang culture threat, but because the probability of being among the cumulative victims of a catastrophic attack on our homeland – be it conventional, nuclear or biological – is escalating largely unabated.

 

The 9/11 attack on our country was perpetrated by 19 al-Qa’ida operatives. Its immediate effects – the loss of lives and the longer-term economic impact – were devastating. It would only take five to 10 al-Qa’ida operatives to create destruction on a 100-fold scale, with a little help from Iran or other terror-sponsoring states.

 

How real is that threat?

 

Islamic terrorist groups are surging worldwide, including Jabhat al-Nusra, Boko Haram, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Taliban, Jamaat-e-Islami, Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Khorasan Group and now, front and center, ISIL, a.k.a. the Islamic State – all of which together constitute Jihadistan, that borderless nation of Islamic extremists aligned under the Qur’anic umbrella.

 

Currently there are many American Islamists actively fighting among the ranks of ISIL in the Middle East – and they have significant networks of support in the United States. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper concludes that the direct links between ISIL and those domestic networks has created “the most diverse array of threats and challenges as I’ve seen in my 50-plus years in the [intelligence] business.”

 

How did this surge get underway?

 

In 2012, amid the cascading failure of his domestic economic and social policies, Barack Obama centered his re-election campaign on his faux foreign policy successes, which were built upon the following two boasts: “Four years ago, I promised to end the war in Iraq. I did.” And “al-Qa’ida is on the run.”

 

The reality, however, is that Obama’s “hope and change” retreat from Iraq left a vacuum for the resurgence of a far more dangerous incarnation of Muslim terrorism under the ISIL label, which has displaced al-Qa’ida as the dominant asymmetric Islamic terrorist threat to the West.

 

Clearly, it is Obama’s foreign policy malfeasance that poses the greatest threat to U.S. national and homeland security.

 

So, is the Islamic State actually, well, Islamic?

 

Not according to Obama. While he subscribes to the hate-driven rhetoric of Afro-centric theology, six formative years of his early life were spent attending Islamic schools in Indonesia, and that has clearly influenced his Obama Quote- I'll Stand with Muslims - Audicity of Hopediscernment regarding Islam.

 

In his address to the UN this week, he declared, “We have reaffirmed again and again that the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. Islam teaches peace.” That was a repeat from his address to the nation last week, when he claimed, “Let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. … And ISIL is certainly not a state.”

 

Reasonable people may disagree on whether the Islamic State now occupying much of Syria and Iraq is, at least by the Western definition, a state, but it certainly is a state in the Jihadistan context given the Islamic World of the Qur’an recognizes no political borders.

 

But for Obama to suggest “ISIL is not Islamic” is flatly absurd. Why else are American taxpayers providing Islamist prisoners at Gitmo copies of the Qur’an and payer rugs?

 

It is equally asinine, of course, for Secretary of State John Kerry to perpetuate the lie that “Islam is the Religion of Peace™” by claiming, “We must continue to repudiate the gross distortion of Islam that ISIL is spreading.”

 

Their errant assertions prompted this rebuke from Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani: “[Obama and Kerry] turned into Islamic jurists, muftis, sheikhs and preachers, standing up for Islam and the Muslims, so it appears that they no longer have confidence in the ability or sincerity of their sorcerers…”

So, is Islamic Jihad really “Islamic”?

 

There are many excellent resources for understanding Islamic extremism and the rise of Islamic terrorism. But allow me to offer a brief overview of Islam and the schism that gave rise to global Islamic Jihad.

 

In 570 AD, Abū al-Qāsim Muhammad was born in Mecca (in modern-dayProphets Genealogy - According Islam Saudi Arabia). In the year 610, Muhammad went into the hills and claims to have received instruction from an angel to spend the next 22 years as the exclusive transcriber of Allah’s message, the Qur’an, which means “recitation.” Its 114 Surahs, or chapters, outline the religious, military, civil, social, commercial and legal systems of Islam. Most Muslims believe that Islam originated with the prophet Adam, and that Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus were Islamic prophets.

 

After Muhammad’s death in 632, Islam split into two factions, Sunni and Shi’ite – a split originating from a dispute about whether the religion should be led by strict adherence to the Qur’an, or led by Ali, the son-in-law of Muhammad. The Sunnis (from “Ahl al-Sunna,” meaning “people of the tradition”) bonded through Muslim orthodoxy. The Shias (from “Shiat Ali,” meaning “party of Ali”) were a political alliance formed around Muhammad’s descendant.

 

Despite the split, Islam thrived, and by the 17th century, a vast Muslim empire was controlled by a powerful military and was the cultural cradle of mathematics, architecture, art, law and science. But the rise of Western military power would divide and conquer the Muslim empire by the end of the 18th century, followed by European occupations of much of that former empire over the next century.

 

By the end of World War I, Islam’s Ottoman Empire was lost. Many Muslims adapted to Western culture, while some held to old Islamic traditions. But the re-constitution of the State of Israel in 1948 seeded a resurgence of Islamic fervor, a fervor that would unleash itself 30 years later under the watch of Jimmy Carter’s administration.

 

In 1979, the powerful and strategic state of Iran fell to the Islamic Revolution, and Shia cleric Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned to power. Student revolutionaries seized the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage, and that act galvanized both Shia and Sunni Islamist activists throughout the Middle East.

 

Today, Shia Muslims represent majorities only in Iran, Iraq and Bahrain.

 

But Islamic Jihad, including al-Qa’ida and subsequent terrorist groups, is rooted in Sunni orthodoxy. Sunnis represent about 85% of Muslims worldwide, including countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

 

So again, is Islamic Jihad “Islamic”? Indeed, it is.

 Graph - Trilogy Devoted to Jihad

The Suras of the Qur’an and the Hadith (Muhammad’s teachings) require jihad, or “holy war,” against all “the enemies of God.” For the record, orthodox Sunnis understand that these “infidels” include all Muslim or non-Muslim people who refute any teachings of Muhammad – which is why ISIL Sunnis are slaughtering Iraqi Shias.

 

It should be noted here that in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible, particularly the books of Deuteronomy and Joshua, the Israelites are instructed to destroy entire cities, including women and children. But unlike the Qur’an, these acts were isolated exceptions rather than the rule. The New Testament of Jesus is devoid of any such commands, and in fact is built on the maxim of loving our neighbors as we would want to be loved, including loving our enemies. There are clearly examples of atrocities in the last 2,000 years that have been carried out in the name of the church not God – including the Catholic Crusades, the Inquisition and the Encomienda System of forced labor and conversion in Spanish America. But every Christian Historian, Theologian and Preacher brands those actions as aberrations and contrary to the faith.

 

On the other hand, few Muslim leaders worldwide, brand Islamic Jihad, which is undertaken in the name of Allah, as contrary to the faith.

 

Rebutting Obama’s assertion that Islamic Jihad is disconnected from Islam, Hoover Institution Fellow Dennis Prager writes: “Killing ‘unbelievers’ has been part of – of course not all of – Islam since its inception. Within 10 years of Muhammad’s death Muslims had conquered and violently converted whole peoples from Iran to Egypt and from Yemen to Syria. Muslims have offered conquered people death or conversion since that time. … More than 600 years after Muhammad, Ibn Khaldun, the greatest Muslim writer who ever lived, explained why Islam is the superior religion in the most highly regarded Muslim work ever written, ‘Muqaddimah,’ or ‘Introduction to History’: ‘In the Muslim community, the holy war is religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force.’”

 

Thus, if you’re among those who resist or refute Muhammad’s teachings, you’re a de facto enemy of Islam.

 

According to Muhammad in the Qur’anic verses, Allah commands, “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

 

Do you refute any teachings of Muhammad?

 

Based on the Sunni Islamist history of violence, it is clear that Islam is not “the Religion of Peace,” though a significant percentage of Muslims worldwide, and in the U.S., do not subscribe to Islamist Jihad theology. But the number of Sunni Muslims who do support that totalitarian theology is staggering.

 

According to the Pew Research Center, there are 2.75 million Muslims in the U.S. today. Notably, about 90% of Muslims in America are Sunni. The Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Nation of Islam have now established more than 2,200 mosques, some of which have become hotbeds of support for Sunni Islamist extremists. The ethnic group with the fastest growing conversion rate to Islam is Latino – 12 million of whom are now in the U.S. illegally, and who continue to pour across our southern border.

Do any of those grim statistics concern you?

 

Obama declared to the UN, “When it comes to America and Islam, there is no ‘us’ and ‘them,’ there is only ‘us’ because millions of Muslim Americans are part of the fabric of our country.”

 

Do have less concern now?

 

At the conclusion of the American Revolutionary War, George Washington wrote that our nation has its roots in “the establishment of civil and religious liberty.”

 

Islam, on the other hand, is founded on the abolition of civil and religious liberty – which is to say it is diametrically opposed to the notion that Liberty is “endowed by our Creator.”

IRS Conducted “Secret Research Project” …


VIDEO: Obama Says “Not Even a Smidgen of Corruption” in IRS Scandal

 

This should be the last straw in Obama believability. If President Barack Hussein Obama’s lips are moving, you got to believe only that he is lying. Scandal after scandal keeps popping up and many cases new info is occurring about these scandals of deception by the Liar-in-chief and his Administration. This is particularly the case with the IRS. I heard some more info on probably the most powerful government agency as far as American citizens are concerned – the IRS – has mysteriously lost FIVE more IRS big dog IRS personnel emails. Now I just heard this on Fox News today so I am sure more details are forthcoming.  Yesterday ACLJ posted some more damning evidence of IRS duplicity as a tool of Obama’s assault on those of us that oppose his transformative agenda for America.

IRS Conducted “Secret Research Project” with Illegally Obtained Conservative Donor Lists

 

By Jordan Sekulow

Sep. 5, 2014 12:01 PM

American Center for Law and Justice

 

The latest dump of IRS emails provides further evidence of the nefarious and concerted effort within the IRS to target conservative groups.

 

In an email under the subject line “donor names,” then IRS acting director of Exempt Organizations Ruling and Agreements David Fish (who worked directly below Lois Lerner) discussed a “secret research project” with Holly Paz.

 

As the Wall Street Journal reports:

 

Perhaps the most intriguing of the new documents shows that IRS officials had some sort of “secret research project” going that related to the donor lists it had collected – inappropriately, as it turned out – from many conservative nonprofit groups.

 

The IRS demanded the donor lists in the course of reviewing dozens of conservative groups’ applications for tax-exempt status starting in 2010. An inspector general found in 2013 that the IRS targeted many of those conservative groups for improper scrutiny, including the demands for donor identities. . . .

 

If the project involved the IRS systematically targeting conservative donors for extra scrutiny too – as some GOP lawmakers suspect – that’s a very big deal.

 

That puts it mildly.

 

In fact, while that email doesn’t give many details about the “secret” program (after all it was a secret), it does state that a decision regarding the program and the donor lists reached all the way to then IRS Commissioner Steven Miller.

 

We know the IRS unconstitutionally targeted conservative groups.  We know they illegally demanded, obtained, and held the donor lists of these conservative organizations.  Now we learn that in 2012, the height of the targeting, the IRS was involved in a “secret research project” with this confidential, illegally obtained donor information.

 

That’s more than a big deal.  It’s potentially criminal.

 

The very fact that the IRS was using the phrase “secret research project” should give every American pause.  But the fact that this project was conducted as part of a well-orchestrated effort to target and silence conservative Americans is utterly disturbing.

 

There are several other incriminating emails revealed in the latest set of Lerner emails turned over to Judicial Watch as part of their ongoing FOIA lawsuit.

 

When the Treasury Inspector General was in the early stages of its audit in June 2012, Lerner demanded to be present when they wanted to speak with her deputy Holly Paz.  In a flurry of emails on the morning of June 28, 2012, Paz informed Lerner that the IG would be interviewing her.  Minutes later, Lerner shot back, “Not alone. Wait til I am there.”  When Paz explained it was in relation to a letter from House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp regarding the targeting and not a Wall Street Journal article about a conservative group, Lerner responded, “Just as dangerous. I’ll talk to you soon. Be there in half hour.”

 

Congressional oversight is only “dangerous” when you have something to hide and are pushing a political agenda.

 

In fact, the IRS itself confirmed in internal emails the politically partisan nature of the IRS targeting.  The email from a senior technical advisor to Lerner under the subject line “Bucketed cases” provides, “Of the 199 (c)(4) cases, approximately 3/4 appear to be conservative leaning . . . .”  It also notes that a majority of the “(c)(3) cases” were “conservative leaning groups.”  This July 18, 2012 email came while the IG was conducting its audit into the IRS targeting.

 

These latest revelations only further confirm the well-orchestrated effort by the IRS to target and silence conservative Americans and then cover their tracks.  They also further show that the targeting reached higher and higher into the IRS.

 

The more we learn, the worse it gets.  As new questions are being raised into the scope of the targeting scandal, it is more important than ever for a Special Counsel to be appointed to investigate the IRS.

 

We continue to press forward with our lawsuit against the IRS on behalf of 41 targeted conservative and pro-life groups from 22 states, with a preliminary ruling on the Obama Justice Department’s attempts to have the case thrown out expected any day.

 

Join the demand for an independent investigator into the IRS targeting scandal by signing our petition for a Special Counsel today.

Failed Dem Policies of Obama or Future Prosperity of a Conservative?

 

John R. Houk

© August 26, 2014

 

The Big Sky State of Montana has been a mixed bag in the U.S.’s political spectrum. Since 2012 Montana voted Republican for President, has a Democrat Governor, two Dem Party Senators and since 2012 Montana’s lone Representative in U.S. House of Representatives is Steve Daines a Republican.

 

Dem Senator John Walsh has been exposed as a plagiarist which became scandalous enough that he opted out of a Senate reelection campaign in 2014. Which makes him a has-been.

 

Guess who became the GOP choice to face Walsh in 2014? Yup, Rep. Steve Daines Montana’s only House member in the U.S. Congress. The Montana Dems have selected State Senator (Montana State Congress) to face Steve Daines in the 2014 election cycle.

 

Daines is so Conservative that the Dems aren’t campaigning against what he votes, but rather the Dems are doing what they doo-doo best. Which is to say the Dem strategy is an absolute negative campaign of character smears much like something you might read from the Montana Leftist blog called Intelligent Discontent:

 

Why Doesn’t Steve Daines Know Anything?

 

The title is fairly self-explanatory but if you are a Leftie you might enjoy how Don Pogreba explains deceitfully votes Conservative with committing to that vote in his home Montana State. Typically the Dems are counting on the Montana voters being duped while calling them stupid for not realizing a Conservative will vote Conservative in House voting roll calls.

 

A Helena Independent Record (IR) posted this about Steve Daines on March 24 of this year:

 

Montana’s U.S. Rep. Steve Daines — a Republican running this year for the U.S. Senate — has fashioned a very conservative voting record in his first 15 months on the job, independent analyses show.

 

He opposed Democratic President Barack Obama 87 percent of the time during 2013, according to Congressional Quarterly, a nonpartisan publication that covers Congress.

 

In addition, a 30-year-old rating system devised by two prominent political scientists casts Daines as the most conservative House member in Montana history.

 

The Montana Democratic Party, which is working to defeat Daines in this year’s election, also has called Daines “reckless” and extreme, pointing primarily to his 2013 support for House Republican budget proposals and his opposition to two key bipartisan budget deals in 2013 and early this year.

 

Daines, in an interview last week, said he prefers to describe his voting record as … YOU CAN READ THE REST (Daines’ voting record: Pragmatic or very conservative? By Mike Dennison; IR; 3/24/14 6:00 am)

 

What a surprising description of the Conservative GOP Haines, right? God bless him for voting against Obama 87% of the time and God bless him for being the most Conservative Representative in Montana history.

 

In contrast the candidate the Dems chose to replace plagiarist Senator Walsh on the 2014 ballot is State Senator Amanda Curtis (D – Dist. 76). Walsh is so Left Wing that you can tell she sees herself in the mold of the Socialist-in-Chief President Barack Hussein Obama. Curtis is using the same kind of rhetoric that Obama used in 2008 to first fool American voters. Here’s a 2008 flashback on Obama:

 

VIDEO: Barack Obama’s small town guns and religion comments

 

Posted by potus08blog

Uploaded on Apr 11, 2008

 

Barack’s comments that are generating all of the controversy: “You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them,” Obama said. “And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” (Bold Text Mine)

 

TeaParty.org put together a short montage of Amanda Curtis vlog videos wearing her Leftist rhetoric on her head like tinfoil to block out the failed policies of Obama’s Left Wing Administration:

Published: Aug 16, 2014

 

Just like her political hero Obama she mocks guns, religion and the traditional family base and acts like opposing Socialistic concepts is the epitome of an American moron.

 

So Montana voters do you want to stick with the guy who voted 87% of the time against the failed Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama while a House member or do you want to a Left Winger into the Senate to perpetuate those failed Obama policies for six years as a Senator? The choice will be yours on that first Tuesday in November 2014.

 

The TeaParty.org article is actually a reprint of a Breitbart.com article. Since I found the article via a TeaParty.org email I am going to cross post from that website. I am going to omit the video since I actually posted that above.

(Breitbart) – Montana State Senator Amanda Curtis (D-76 Dist.) is running for U.S. Senate and will no doubt be trying to run away from her past statements mocking guns, Christianity, the Bible, and the family.

 

She just stepped into the race in place of John Walsh, the Democrat candidate who had to step down amid a plagiarism scandal.

 

On August 22 the Tea Party Express posted a compilation of Curtis’s statements that include laughing at gun owners who stress the importance of having a gun for self-defense. She does this by telling stories about walking home “in the dark, through parking lots and everything,” without a gun. She looks into the camera, feigning surprise, and says, “I’m glad I made it.”

 

She then references someone who brought up “the God almighty, and natural law, and the Bible, and biblical this and biblical that, and Christianity and fundamental Christianity.” After saying these things she looks into the camera and grimaces, like the mention of these things caused her pain.

 

She then makes fun of a fellow legislator who said “the most basic form of government in Montana is the family.” She grimaced again and said, “Really?”

 

Of course, her mockery of the family is also another mockery of Christianity, which puts forth the family as the first authority children learn to obey.

Defending the Cross

War has not just come to America with the beheading of the U.S. “journalist” James Foley and the Islamic State’s declaration of war on the United States. Our nation has been under attack by the agents of Islam and Sharia law long before Sheik Mohammed al-Hanooti conspired to bomb the World Trade Center in 1993; and, with the rise of the Islamic State and its messianic vision, regarding Christians, Jews and infidels deserving of death, a new wave of terror is soon to be launched on America’s home-front, unless the United States and the free world exterminates the Islamofascists of the Islamic State.

 

Obama’s ISIS “JV league” now controls one-third of Syria and one-third of Iraq, according to the ‘Long War Journal’, and the flag of Al Qaeda flies over Fallujah, flying in the face of Obama’s ideologically based conclusions that Al Qaeda is “decimated” and “the war on terror is over.” Far from over, it now seems apparent to the Obama administration that the real war is just beginning.

 

During the past decades, the U.S. has witnessed Islamic inspired terror plots, designed to kill hundreds and thousands, foiled by the Grace of God, luck and good investigative work and intelligence information. Najibullah Zazi hoped to detonate a Triacetone Triperoxide based explosive in the New York subway close to September 11, 2009 [Blog Editor: Washington Times and PI Bill Warner]; in April 2013, Ahmed Abassi, a chemical engineering graduate student at Laval University in Quebec, planned to murder upwards of 100,000 people, by contaminating the water supply of a major U.S. city. [Blog Editor: NY Times via Hydrablog Link]

 

Due to tight regulations regarding the sale and transfer of any explosive material in the U.S., Obama’s current open border policy is an extremely serious and critical U.S. national security breach. Border agents are finding items like ‘In Memory of Our Martyrs’, a book documenting suicide-bombings, which was found near Casa Grande, AZ in January 2012 [Blog Editor: Townhall.com Link]. And, two months later, Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen released a report quoting Abdullah al-Nafsi, a Muslim cleric, saying “… one man with the courage to carry a suitcase of anthrax through the tunnels from Mexico to the United States could kill 330,000 Americans in one hour.” [Blog Editor: Washington Times Link]

 

The 9/11 Commission Report has 59 references to terrorist activity in Arizona and references a classified CIA/FBI report titled ‘Arizona’s Long-Range Nexus for Islamic Extremists’ [Blog Editor: Perhaps a similar examination in the same time frame but Joint House-Senate report 12/2002. I could only find a redacted to next to nothing redacted version of the CIA/FBI report]. Cooperation between the Mexican drug cartels and the terror groups, like Hezbollah and Al Qaeda, has been fairly common knowledge for most of this decade. This is even more significant in light of 15 adult Bangladeshi men being apprehended by Border Agents on July 26, 2014, as they attempted to sneak across the border, in the Rio Grande Valley Sector near McAllen, Texas.

 

On August 22nd, ranking member of the Armed Services Committee, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) told Fox 25 TV in Oklahoma City: “We’re in one of the most dangerous positions we’ve ever been in as a nation. They’re crazy out there, and they’re rapidly developing a method to blow up a major U.S. city and people just can’t believe that’s happening.”

 

Currently ISIS, the Islamic State, commands 50,000 jihadists/”holy” warriors in Syria and 30,000 in Iraq. Of these numbers, according to the International Center for Radicalization at King’s College in London, among the Europeans, they found 700 French, 500 British, 100 Dutch, 300 Germans and 300 from various other countries.

 

Earlier in August, an ex-convict from North Carolina became the eighth American to be arrested before making a trip to Syria to wage their sacrilegious “holy” war. Seven of the eight are Islamic State supporters. So far, over 100 Americans have joined the fight in Syria.

 

Retired Navy Captain Chuck Nash told ‘WND’ [Blog Editor: WND Link] (Aug 20): “I think we’re in trouble … These people are traveling on American, British and other European passports, where they can very easily slip under the radar. We’re going to see the blonde-haired, blue-eyed Muslim terrorist … Hopefully we see that person before they complete their mission.

 

Former CIA Officer Bob Baer said, “I have been told with no uncertainty that there are ISIS sleeper cells in this country.” [Blog Editor: Here’s a Newsmax Link with the same quote]

 

Michael Gregory, a Reuters reporter, has had numerous conversations with Islamic State jihadists, who have repeatedly told him that their leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is planning something. They suggested attacks would soon be waged by sleeper cells in both Europe and the United States. [Blog Editor: Counterjihad Report Link]

 

Baghdadi’s goals, of unifying the Levant under the Islamic State, the New Caliphate, and activating new terror strikes beyond the scope and magnitude of September 11, 2001, are certainly appearing somewhat possible, mainly due to the Islamic State’s control of captured oil fields. Now, as ISIS has expanded that control and created new smuggling routes, the market is raising $2 million a day, or $730 million annually. And this is enough to sustain Baghdadi’s operations beyond Iraq.

 

On August 21st, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel stated, “They (ISIL/ISIS) are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well funded. [Blog Editor: The Economic Times Link] (note: A large percentage of ISIS was trained in Jordan by U.S. military _see ‘Blowback! …’ [Blog Editor: WND Link] by Aaron Klein 6/17/14).

 

Radical Islamists or Islamofascists, call them by any nomenclature, and one still cannot separate them from Islam, and neither can one separate Islam from the atrocities currently being committed. There are not any Christians, Buddhists or Jews anywhere in the ISIS organization.

 

After James Foley’s murder, Obama stated, “People like this (ISIS) ultimately fail. They fail because the future is won by those who build and not destroy.”

 

Mollie Hemingway, editor at ‘The Federalist’ [Blog Editor: The Federalist Link], noted that what President Obama said “is literally Mickey Mouse philosophy. And I don’t mean that in a good way.”

 

Where is our President? Praising fictitious Islamic contributions to Our American Heritage? America cannot tolerate Obama’s foreign policy based on inaction, delays and half-measures, while the fires of global jihad burn.

 

In his most expansive remarks on the crisis, since the U.S. airstrikes began in Iraq, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin E Dempsey said (NY Times Aug 21): “This is an organization that has an apocalyptic end-of-days vision that will eventually have to be defeated. Can they be defeated without addressing that part of the organization that resides in Syria? The answer is no.” [Blog Editor: NY Times Link]

America is in a generational struggle against the sick, pathological and extreme ideology of Islam, and America must show no mercy for the merciless Islamic State, which seeks the “breaking of the American [Christian] cross” and the fulfillment of Islamic prophecy. We must unleash the full fury and might of the U.S. military on the Islamic State and annihilate these animals, who would end our U.S. Republic, democratic elections and religious freedom, leaving only Sharia law. And, we must fight to victory or condemn future generations to a perpetual state of war, or worse.

VIDEO: Iraqi Yazidi MP Breaks Down in Parliament: ISIL is Exterminating my People

 

Intro to J. O. Smith’s ‘In the Name of Humanity’

Edited by John R. Houk

August 17, 2014

 

As a Biblical believing Christian I place all other religions in a box of shunning. As a First Amendment believing and promoting American I believe each individual has the right to worship whoever or whatever they believe. However, because I believe in Religious Freedom does not mean that I will not point that which is particularly abhorrent to the Christian faith. I definitely am not a promoter of Multicultural Diversity that dilutes my Christian cultural heritage. And so I am often labeled a bigot.

 

Tackling contrary religious beliefs probably would be a multi-post project of which I am already in the middle of two. Allow me to say this as briefly as I can pertaining to Islam. Islam is not only an antichrist religion that focuses on eliminating Christians and Jews their Quran deceptively call the People of the Book, that particular religion especially represents everything that is destructive to the Western Culture that has led to the best rule of law document that has become the guiding light politically leading to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness – the United States Constitution. Because of this violent goal to force all humanity to submit to a man-created deity derived from a polytheistic god turning into a monotheistic religion, Mohammed the creator of Islam has set in motion a theo-political death cult that has forced its Liberty destroying upon a large chunk of the world.

 

The genocide going on in what’s left of Iraq under the control of ISIS (or ISIL) is what will occur whenever a purist form of Islam gains the reins of political power. The Christians and Yazidis have faced the brunt of this Islamic intolerance under ISIS. Most Americans know about Christianity. If you are anything like me, you know little to nothing about the Yazidis:

 

A historically misunderstood group, the Yazidis are predominantly ethnically Kurdish, and have kept alive their syncretic religion for centuries, despite many years of oppression and threatened extermination.

 

The ancient religion is rumoured to have been founded by an 11th century Ummayyad sheikh, and is derived from Zoroastrianism (an ancient Persian faith founded by a philosopher), Christianity and Islam. The religion has taken elements from each, ranging from baptism (Christianity) to circumcision (Islam) to reverence of fire as a manifestation from God (derived from Zoroastrianism) and yet remains distinctly non-Abrahamic. This derivative quality has often led the Yazidis to be referred to as a sect. (Who are the Yazidis and why is Isis hunting them? By Raya Jalabi; The Guardian; 8/11/14 08.46 EDT)

 

Knowing about the Yazidis is a bit more complicated than The Guardian synopsis. Here are a few places to get a more complete idea:

 

·         Yazidi – Wikipedia

 

·         Yazidis – GlobalSecurity.org

 

Yazidi Perspective in English:

 

·         The Yezidis – YezidiTruth.org

 

·         Yezidi Genocide – YezidiTruth.org

 

With that long introduction set-up, Justin Smith writes about the threat of ISIS.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, under the command of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is evil incarnate, and, more than a threat to Christians and America, it represents a new global threat, which was a foreseeable consequence of arming the “rebels”, Al Qaeda, in Syria. Having burst forth as a product of the Syrian civil war and the U.S. premature withdrawal from Iraq on Obama’s orders, ISIS now seeks to expand the area it already controls, approximately an area the size of Great Britain, through violence and terror, beheading all unlike them – liberal Muslims, Christians, and Yazidis – raping the women and murdering entire families; they are destroying all who do not accept their vision of an Islamic state, their declared Caliphate, as they give them the ultimatum of “convert or die.” And now, this genocide of historic proportions demands that the U.S. and the free world exterminate the dire threat from ISIS through all the military might they can muster.

 

Obama, ever sympathetic to Sunni Muslims, more than likely illegally and surreptitiously armed the so-called “rebels” in Syria by late 2011 from Libya, as strong evidence suggests. Conclusive evidence from U.S. officials and Syrian figures reveals the CIA and U.S. Special Forces delivered weapons to the rebels, mostly Al Qaeda affiliates, around September 1, 2013, according to the Washington Post (9/11/13).

 

Many war weary Americans did not want to intervene in Syria’s civil war last year, including myself, since many of us, along with many government officials, believed Bashar al-Assad could be deterred and eventually removed through better alternatives, than arming the rebels, as Senator John McCain advocated. Now the very circumstances, of which some, such as Lt Col Ralph Peters, warned and America sought to avoid, have developed, and ISIS murder and mayhem cuts a swath across the Middle East, due to Obama’s unilateral actions.

 

Abu Bakr Baghdadi, the self-appointed Caliph of the Islamic State and a one-time prisoner at Guantanamo Bay detention camp, leads somewhere near 35,000 well-armed and trained jihadist warriors, and he has steadfastly worked to redraw the map of the Middle East. He swiftly led ISIS into Iraq around June with an army led by former Baath Party military and military intelligence from Saddam’s old regime. As they closed within 25 miles of Baghdad, they suddenly veered north and took Mosul on June 10th, and its dam on August 7th, routing the Kurdish Peshmerga (regional army) and creating tens of thousands of refugees in the face of their onslaught, mostly from the Yazidi minority.

 

At least 40,000 Yazidis took refuge in nine locations on Mount Sinjar, as ISIS hordes advanced on the town of Sinjar the first week of August, and approximately 130,000 more have fled to Dohuk, in the Kurdish north, and Irbil, once it became obvious ISIS was heading towards them; nearly all 300,000 residents have left, since ISIS Islamofascists stormed Sinjar on August 3rd and delivered their inhuman message of “convert or die.”

 

During an August 7th interview of Mark Arabo, a California businessman and a leader of Chaldean Catholics in America, when CNN’s Jonathan Mann seemed to be in disbelief and startled by his narrative, Arabo repeated his facts slowly (numerous videos support his account): “They are systematically beheading children. The world hasn’t seen evil like this for generations. There’s actually a park in Mosul where the actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick…. They are doing the most horrendous, the most heart-breaking crimes you can think of.”

 

Also on August 7th, Obama answered the cries of many refugees, who had said “no one is coming to help”, with “Well, we (the U.S.) are coming to help”, as he authorized a series of bombing raids on ISIS positions and supply drops of food and water to those encircled and besieged Yazidis on Mt. Sinjar. Subsequently, 114,000 meals and 35,000 gallons of water were soon dropped by the U.S., followed by British cargo planes that dropped essential supplies and 16,000 more liters of water on August 11th.

 

As of August 15th (Friday), the ISIS siege was still in place and their perimeter had only withdrawn a couple of miles due to U.S. bombing, despite claims by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel on August 13th that “we broke the siege at Mt. Sinjar,” although Yazidi and Kurdish Peshmerga rescue teams had been able to move some civilians on August 10th to Kurdish controlled territory, near Fishkabour.

 

Iraqi Member of Parliament and a Yazidi, Vian Dakhil, who has been in constant contact with Yazidi leaders trapped on Mt. Sinjar, was recently injured in a helicopter crash, as she attempted to reach her people. She suggested (8/15/14) that the U.S. military assessment team visited the only side of Sinjar accessible by helicopter, the north side, leaving the real plight of nearly 80,000 more Yazidis on the south side unseen.

 

“We are being slaughtered, annihilated,” MP Vian Dakhil declared, as reported by the Middle East Research Institute. “An entire religion is being wiped off the face of the Earth. Brothers, I am calling out to you in the name of humanity ___ In the name of humanity save us!” And she then soon broke down in tears.

 

The world is witnessing a genocide of Christians that promises to surpass the Turkish slaughter of two million Armenian Christians (1915-1918). One and a half million Christians present in Iraq in 2003 have now been reduced to less than 400,000, according to Ablahad Afraim, the head of the Chaldean Democratic Union Party, who based this assessment on international reports and church records; this rising genocide of Christians in the Islamic world, whether in Iraq, West Africa or South Asia ought to cause a global alarm that makes this the most significant human rights challenge of this era.

 

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s parting message to his U.S. guards at Guantanamo Bay detention camp was a vow that “we’ll see you in New York,” and one of his spokesmen recently declared that ISIS will “raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”

 

Obama is truly a pathetic commander-in-chief whose curious actions, as well as his inaction, may well allow Abu Baghdadi to rebuild the Islamic Caliphate in the Levant and a terrorist base of operations, unless PM Tony Abbott of Australia, PM Stephen Harper of Canada, PM Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and PM David Cameron of the U.K. unite to stop him, since they seem more inclined to do so than Obama. Obama seems to think a supply drop or two and a few F-18 airstrikes is enough.

 

Seeing what ISIS has done in Iraq, one quickly realizes they would gladly do whatever they could to deeply injure America again, and ISIS represents a direct threat to the U.S. and humanity. This is genocide pure and simple. America sees it and knows it as genocide, and as such, it is imperative that the U.S. and the world take vigorous military action against ISIS and all possible measures to prevent this massacre of minorities in Iraq. And with more than vigilance and 130 advisors, the U.S. and its allies should send 130 bombers and 130,000 soldiers to run ISIS into the ground, utterly destroy them and kill them mercilessly with extreme prejudice, just as they did entire Christian communities.

When Allen West Speaks – Believe It


Allen West

 

John R. Houk

© August 15, 2014

 

Lt. Col. Allen West lost his reelection bid as a House Representative in Florida District 18 by a combination of gerrymandering and voter fraud (Liberal Admission and Conservative View) in 2012.

 

Of course before entering politics in 2010, West was a Lieutenant Colonel in U.S. Army fighting Islamic terrorists in Iraq. West was a decorated Army hero treated shabbily and unjustly by the U.S. Army largely due to a Left Wing cancerous disease of political correctness.

 

The short version of an incident that then Lt. Col. West became directly involved with was some enhanced interrogation of a captured Islamic terrorist that was proven had knowledge of an assassination attempt on West and an ambush against his soldiers. West was essentially drummed out of the Army for this enhanced interrogation technique that led to the capture of terrorist insurgents sparing the lives of his soldiers from that plan.

 

Here is the long version courtesy of FrontPageMag.com in a write-up of the online news service’s 2004 Man of the Year:

 

 

… He knew only too well of the terrorist attacks carried out by Saddam loyalists and recently arrived jihadist fanatics, claiming an average of one U.S. soldier’s life each day. With a firm commitment to protect his soldiers’ well-being, he determined to keep his troops safe.

 

In late August, Colonel West received news that his men had been targeted by a group of thugs associated with an Iraqi policeman named Yahya Jhodri Hamoodi. Allied forces quickly apprehended Hamoodi in Saba al Boor, a tiny town near Tikrit. Four interrogation specialists worked late into the evening of August 20, desperately trying to pry the attack plans out of him. Growing frustrated, the interrogators resorted to physical force, punching Hamoodi – without success. (Hamoodi was not seriously injured at any point during the interrogation.) It was then that Col. Allen West intervened.

 

Seeing that even physical violence had proven ineffective, Colonel West took the next logical step: He took the intransigent suspect outside, shoved Hamoodi’s head into a sandbox and threatened to kill him. The Colonel then pulled out his sidearm and fired a warning shot into the sky. Then West carefully held Hamoodi’s head aside as he fired a shot over Hamoodi’s shoulder, into the warm Iraqi sand burying his visage.

 

That near-scrape with death did the trick. Hamoodi began singing, telling West the identities of two men planning the attacks and revealing their attack plans, including the site of the intended ambush. The two men were arrested, and Colonel West ordered his men away from the site as they continued to serve the liberated Iraqi people. Upon turning Hamoodi over, he admitted his unorthodox tactics. For protecting the 700 soldiers in his care and cracking Hamoodi where professional interrogators had failed, Colonel West was immediately stripped of his command and threatened with jail time.

 

 

On December 11, West escaped court martial. Major General Raymond Odierno ordered West to pay a $5,000 fine and allowed him to retire as a Lieutenant Colonel. The ordeal caused by his desire to save his troops a violent death in a desert land had finally ended. He was free to return to Ft. Hood, Texas, to his wife Angela, with his reputation essentially cleared.

 

READ ENTIRETY (FrontPage Magazine’s Man of the Year: Col. Allen B. West; By Ben Johnson; FrontPageMag.com; 1/2/04)

 

You can read Allen West’s own account at the Washington Times.

 

I had entered into hero worship of Allen West before he entered politics of his heroic actions to protect his troops and hunt down Islamic terrorists. Did I say “hero worship”? Well, get over it if you are a Leftist.

 

So anyway I am a supporter of Allen West because I trust his decisions and his patriotism. Recently West called President Obama an Islamist because of his presidential decisions that tend to favor the Muslim world’s narrative about America and Israel.

 

I am going to cross post that article below, but before I do I feel the need to qualify West’s strong words describing President Barack Hussein Obama.

 

There will be Leftists and those that favor a counterjihad approach to exposing Islam that will read something into the “Islamist” label that West did not mean. The Left will call West an Islamophobe bigot and counterjihad amateurs will jump in glee for exposing BHO as a closet Muslim.

 

Allen West did not call President Obama a Muslim. West affirmed that Obama’s actions shows all the evidence of Islamist enemies of America hence West called the President an Islamist.

 

Personally I am convinced Obama is a largely irreligious Leftist that has embraced the political strategy of using radical Islam as a tool to accomplish a Leftist agenda which would produce the Leftist utopia government control of people, their customs and their societal life.

 

Below is Matthew Burke’s news piece posted on TPNN bi-lined with Allen West calling Obama an Islamist.

Allen West: ‘Barack Hussein Obama is an Islamist’

 

By Matthew Burke

August 14, 2014

Tea Party News Network

 

Former congressman, Lt. Col. Allen West proclaimed on Wednesday that there is only one true explanation that Obama is “purposely enabling the Islamist cause.”

 

West, a favorite among many in the pro-freedom, pro-Constitution Tea Party movement, listed six instances where the Obama regime has been “working counter to the security of the United States of America”:

 

1. The unilateral release of five senior Taliban back to the enemy while the enemy is still fighting us.

 

2. Providing weapons of support to the Muslim Brotherhood-led Egyptian government — F-16s and M1A1 Abrams tanks — but not to the Egyptian government after the Islamist group has been removed.

 

3. Negotiations with Qatar and Turkey, two Islamist-supporting countries.

 

4. Negotiations with Hamas, a terrorist group.

 

5. Returning sanction money, to the tune of billions of dollars, back to the theocratic regime led by Iran’s ayatollahs and allowing them to march on towards nuclear capability.

6. Obama’s evident support of Islamists in Libya.

 

Along with the above, West cited the recent report that Obama has lifted longtime restrictions against Libyans attending flight schools and receiving nuclear science training in the U.S, only two years after the terrorism that took place in Benghazi, Libya.

There is only one logical reason for the Democrat president to make these anti-American decisions, West concluded Wednesday on his website, that there is no other reason why Obama would prop-up America’s enemies:

 

Sorry, but I can only explain this one way: Barack Hussein Obama is an Islamist in his foreign policy perspectives and supports their cause. You can go back and listen to his 2009 speech in Cairo, where Muslim Brotherhood associates were seated front and center.

All the circumstantial and anecdotal evidence points to that conclusion. The pivot away from the Middle East seems to be nothing more than an opportunity to enable Islamists and their goals. Anyone supporting this Libyan ban being lifted is indeed an enemy of this state.

 

In June, the former congressman from Florida called for Obama’s impeachment, following Obama’s negotiation with terrorists, releasing military deserter Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for the U.S. release of five notorious Muslim terrorists from GITMO.

Barack Obama’s longtime pastor for over two decades, Jeremiah Wright, told author Ed Klein two years ago that “Barack Obama was steeped in Islam” and that he “knew very little about Christianity.”

 

“When I asked the Reverend Wright about this whole question of Islam and Christianity. He said, well, you know, Barack Obama was steeped in Islam. He knew a lot about Islam from his childhood. But he knew very little about Christianity. And I made it easy for him to feel not guilty about learning about Christianity without turning his back on his Islamic friends.”

Mad Hatter President?

I Want My White Hat Back

 

By Norma Zager

Sent: 8/11/2014 10:37 PM

 

Americans have always grown up believing we are the good guys. We fight the wars of the righteous, help the oppressed and free the world from despots and evil dictators.

 

I am seriously wondering when all that had changed.

 

Do I have to dig up John Wayne to do battle with evil?

Isn’t anyone up to the challenge anymore?

 

It is no longer an assumption that America is on the right side of history, because now it seems we are on the wrong one or can’t even find the sides at all.

 

When good men ignore evil and allow it to run free, well you know the rest.

 

Recent ceasefire talks between Israel and Hamas were held and brokered in Egypt after John Kerry botched the previous ones.

He wasn’t even invited to participate.

 

Wow, America not part of the solution?

 

Obviously we have now become part of the problem.

 

When America does wrong, its size and power exacerbate its foibles.

In the last six years, the U.S. has turned its back on allies, ignored murder and genocide in numerous countries and enabled the most evil Empire on earth to soon obtain nuclear capability.

 

Am I living in a parallel universe?

Can this actually be happening?

Sadly, it is.

 

The U.S. left Iraq to the devices of terrorists and Islamic extremists with no plan in place to protect what American men and women fought and died to protect. And we thought Sadam Hussein was a jerk?

 

Syria has murdered close to 200,000 of its people, Pakistan has taken billions in payoff money and thrown the US under the bus and Africa, well, is even more problematic than it has ever been.

 

The United Nations is a total failure and joke in the world, but we continue to support this pathetic sideshow to the tune of two billion plus a year.

 

Americans are murdered, kidnapped, falsely imprisoned and no one says a peep.

 

Our borders are open to anyone who feels like strolling over, at a time when America has more enemies who seek its destruction than Colorado has pot plants. Am I dreaming here?

 

The happiest man on planet earth right now is Vladimir Putin because it is free day for him. And America thinks it is going to stop Mother Russia with a few missing chickens?

 

Jews and Christians are being murdered all over the world, and the President hops on a plane to inhale clam chowder on Martha’s Vineyard and schmooze with celebrities.

 

I don’t have enough room on my computer anymore to list all the horrors going on in this world.  What the hell happened to our white hat? Did we give it away to all the evil dictators of the world?

 

Sure, all of us in the civilized world would like to return to the past when our biggest problem was Cuba harboring nukes.  When a US president could back Russia down with a phone call.

 

Ignoring the craziness only intensifies its growth.

 

Hitler didn’t burst on the scene like a 15-minute rock star but was duly elected by the German people.

 

That’s the scariest part of all. When people elect their own destroyer.  Sort of like a worldwide StayPuff Marshmallow man marching through the planet, and now sadly squashing churches and synagogues in his wake.

 

The Palestinian people chose Hamas, a terrorist organization, through an election, in lieu of a more moderate government, and now when it has come back to bite them, they blame everyone else for their foolish choices.

 

Do most Jewish people probably wish Israel was located somewhere less dangerous, like Miami Beach? Maybe, but they didn’t choose where their history would lead them.

 

I am quite amused by those who wish to condemn and ostracize Israel, and yet I would bet anything that when these same anti-Semites need medicines or technology to save their lives, they are the first to demand the latest Israel advances.

 

If it all weren’t so tragic, it would be comical.

 

Over 1,000 French Jews fled that country last year to save their lives, and more leave daily. All the countries in Europe are more anti-Semitic now than Deutschland before WWII. In Germany they are now marching holding signs reading “Gas the Jews.” Seems like old times.

 

However, this time it’s different, despite the fact the Pope sits in his ivory tower and ignores the plight of Christians throughout the world. He’s not only King of the Church, he’s the Cleopatra of Popes, king of denial. He finally noticed there is a problem, gee maybe he needs to listen to the news.

 

This time it’s not just Jews that are being threatened and murdered, but also Christians.

 

The Holy War has begun and is in full swing. Mankind is marching backward at warp speed. Isn’t there some sort of oxymoron to that statement? How can the Hadron Collider, working on manufacturing time travel and the primitive savage beasts trying to take over the world actually exist within the same era?

 

Where is the United States of America? Why aren’t there marches on Washington now? Why isn’t there an outcry in our Senate against the war targeting the Judeo-Christian world?

 

It is shocking to me that it is business as usual as sympathizers of evil speak out in favor of terrorism.

 

Elites in Hollywood, who have no concept of the fact they are next on the hit list after Israel, speak out as though they are some righteous bunch saving humanity.

 

What a joke.

 

Years ago Mel Gibson made racist and anti-Semitic remarks and was ostracized and condemned. Today anti-Semitism is very chic and acceptable in Hollywood, especially by self-hating Jews.

 

I rarely consider myself normal, whatever that may be, but I am beginning to wonder if normal exists any longer.

 

Unfortunately, the world is now in a position where it must choose sides.

 

When decent people watch as Christians are forced to escape to a mountaintop in Iraq like a replay of Masada and little innocent children stand with guns keeping watch, there is a serious problem here.

 

Where once the US was a problem solver, now it is a Band-Aid fix.

 

Admitting we were caught off guard by a bunch of savages, if that’s even true, makes our CIA look like kiddy day at the gym. Dropping in food and sending a few jets in after the enemy has taken a stronghold is laughable.

 

I only hope that the American Eagle, who I understand is old and pretty worn out by now, can fly again.

 

Without him soaring over the world and fighting evil, good people will have nowhere left to run.

A Moral Distinction

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 8/9/2014 8:11 PM

 

To hear Obama, his administration and Secretary of State John Kerry say that they were “appalled” by the “disgraceful act” of the United Nations School in Gaza being bombed on August 3rd by Israeli Defense Forces, after the IDF warned residents in advance of this attack, shows Obama’s and Kerry’s willingness to distort and misrepresent the facts and the reality of the situation, as they exploit the peace process through their thinly veiled anti-Semitic positions, in a vile, dishonest and stupid manner. They are so anxious to achieve peace at any cost, that they make no moral distinction between Hamas and Israel, which, in and of itself, is unconscionable and shameful.

 

Yes, it was a terrible scene, the dead Palestinian children. And yet, rather than condemn the Hamas terror government for starting this conflict, for firing missiles from behind the U.N. School, for hiding stockpiles of weapons near schools, mosques and hospitals and for abducting and murdering three Israeli teenagers, John Kerry offered a cease-fire deal that heavily favored Hamas and did nothing to ensure Israel’s security, while Pierre Krahenbuhl, UN official, condemned Israel’s act of self-defense as a “serious violation of international law”.

 

What then were Hamas’ attacks on Israel? Aren’t Israeli lives just as precious as Palestinian lives? And, isn’t it time for the U.S. and the U.N. to remove Hamas from the Palestinian-Israeli equation permanently?

 

During WWII, the Free World, the U.S. and the Allies did not wring their hands over hundreds of thousands of civilians killed by the fire-bombs at Dresden and the nuclear weapons used on Japan, because they were struggling to survive against the onslaught of the extreme evil of fascism, just as Israel now struggles against the horrific evil of Islamofascism. Israel’s counterattacks are warranted, especially in light of Islamofascist death squads recently using tunnels to mount attacks inside Israel.

 

Although Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu states that Israel’s war is with Hamas and not the Palestinian people, it is hard to be too sympathetic towards a people who repeatedly elected Hamas and exiled the Palestinian Authority to the West Bank. The Palestinian people chose to stay in Gaza, because by and large they are in complete agreement with the Hamas charter that seeks Israel’s destruction. So, the problem is with the Palestinian people for giving power to Hamas, who are terrorists to the core.

 

Turki al-Faisal, former Intelligence Chief for Saudi Arabia, recently stated, “Hamas readiness to cause a great deal of suffering … clearly shows Hamas is irresponsible.”

 

As Prime Minister Netanyahu stated on August 6, 2014 (Fox News), “We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to prevent civilian casualties. Hamas has gone to extraordinary lengths to cause civilian casualties. Imagine your home, your country targeted by death squads. What would you do?”

 

War crimes are being committed by Hamas. They tell their own people to stay in their homes and to die as martyrs for Jihad, so duplicitous video will show the “Palestinian suffering” at the hands of Israel. And all the while they bombard Israel; since June 2014, Hamas has fired approximately four to five thousand missiles into Israel, targeting civilians and military personnel indiscriminately.

 

In July Dov Hikind, Democratic Assemblyman from Brooklyn, stated on Fox News:

 

“They (the Hamas terrorists) are rejoicing because they put civilians as human shields. America condemns Israel and they are thrilled … I asked the President of the United States, stop this,”

 

On July 9, Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri said, “The blood of the shahids (martyrs) killed in this campaign is the fuel of our victory.”

 

Adding insult to injury, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter recently abandoned all morality and called for the U.S. to recognize Hamas as a legitimate political group and delivered more of his frequent anti-Semitic statements against Israel. One must wonder if Carter would also call Al Qaeda “a legitimate political group.”

 

Even more disturbing, the Obama administration is relying on Qatar, an ally of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, for guidance during this conflict between Israel and Hamas. Secretary of State John Kerry defers the “peace process” to supporters of terrorism, because he believes Qatar’s Foreign Minister Khaled al-Attiyeh will be able to bring the Hamas terrorist government to the negotiating table. Kerry seems to forget that Israel is the U.S.’s long standing ally by treaty, not Hamas; but, this is not unusual for this administration, which has a major Muslim Brotherhood presence in the White House inner circle that has regularly exposed national security information, according to retired General Tom McInerney.

 

Is it not surreal and shameful to hear the ‘New York Times’ call Kerry “a loyal friend to Israel?”

 

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict really does not have a comprehensive solution, because it is purely Israel’s existence as a sovereign Jewish state in the middle of all Islam that troubles these Sons of Allah, Hamas. And, in their quest to destroy Israel, these terrorists, who follow the same Pan-Islamist agenda as ISIS, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda, will always play the double-cross and keep their people in squalor, poverty and conflict, until they send them to their deaths as martyrs, to kill and die: Israel’s only option is to pursue a One State Solution, annex Gaza, eradicate Hamas and annex the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

 

I find it shameful that, in the name of world peace, Obama, Kerry, the U.N. and many Americans and Europeans absolve one side alone, Hamas, of its hate, and, in the name of pacifism, they lead the confused and uneducated back three-quarters of a century to the time of the yellow star on the coat. And I find it shameful to see those hypocritical progressives, such as Jimmy Carter and John Kerry, communists and pacifists nourish the rise of a new fascism, most grim and revolting, as Hamas leaders, such as Khalil al-Hayya, use $440 million in annual U.S. aid to buy missiles to kill Jews.

 

I see it, yes, and I stand with Israel. I stand with the Jews. I defend their right to defend themselves from being exterminated a second time. And disgusted by the anti-Semitism of many Americans, I am ashamed of this shame, the “president” and his administration that dishonors my Country.

Political Expediency is BHO’s Greatest Career Asset


Mark Obama Ndesandjo

John R. Houk

Jerome Corsi has written an interesting article on yet another half-brother of President Barack Hussein Obama. It is evident that Barack Senior liked the foreign ladies as well as the ladies of his home nation of Kenya. Corsi writes about Mark Obama Ndesandjo who is releasing a book in September that is apparently unflattering to Barrack Junior.

 

At this point I’d just like to state I am no longer a supporter of the Birther ideology that Obama was really born in Kenya and that his Birth Certificate was fraudulently reproduced to appear Obama was born in Hawaii. I still believe the Obama Junior Birth Certificate was doctored with an unclear reason that one can only theorize. My biggest suspicion is when Obama’s mother remarried another foreign man of Muslim heritage and moved to Indonesia that there was a citizenship change. Even if this is true I am unsure how dual citizenship would mess up Obama’s eligibility for President unless one makes the case Obama Senior was a foreign national, meaning Obama Junior was the son of one Natural Born citizen and a foreign national born on American soil. Still, as much as anyone makes an issue that the Constitution requires two American citizens (Natural Born or Naturalized) to eligible for President, the Constitution is indeed vague enough giving Congress the power to redefine eligibility as long as one is born on American soil.

 

Then there is the issue of Obama going to great legal lengths to obfuscate Birthers from finding missing links in Obama’s early childhood and relationship to his foreign-Muslim born father and moving to Indonesia living with his foreign-Muslim born Indonesian Step-father as well as all the school records between here and there and here again. The more the Birthers dug into his past the more important it became for President Obama to toss a public bone. Thus the release of the enigmatic Birth Certificate with the appropriate Hawaiian documentation BUT a lot of suspicious holes as to authenticity.

 

At any rate I believe Obama is eligible to be President even if under cryptic circumstances it is obvious the current POTUS is still hiding something. Add that to all the lies that are a heartbeat away from being exposed via covered-up and/or hidden documents pointing toward the Constitution’s definition of the design of High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Probably Obama is safe from impeachment as long as the Republican Establishment cites Senate control by the Dems and their fear that another discussion of impeaching a President will damage the Republic of the USA. The Republican Establishment is more concerned about political expediency than protecting the integrity of the U.S. Constitution.

 

So this is my qualified Birther denial. In case you case you are unaware Jerome Corsi is still a devoted Birther and so writing this article on Mark Obama Ndesandjo had to be a certain joy.

OBAMA’S HALF-BROTHER CALLS HIM ALOOF, DISTANT

Set to release bio disputing president’s version of family history

By JEROME R. CORSI

August 5, 2014

WorldNetDaily

 

NEW YORK – Yet another Obama relative is about to surface in the United States to cause the president grief over the credibility of key aspects of the autobiography that helped propel him to the White House, “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.”

Mark Obama Ndesandjo, Barack Obama’s Kenyan half-brother, plans to release Sept. 16 his own autobiography, “An Obama’s Journey: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery across Three Cultures,” published by Globe Pequot Press.

 

WND reported in December Ndesandjo initially planned to self-publish the book.

In an advance copy of the 374-page memoir obtained by WND, Ndesandjo describes his relationship with his half-brother as distant and strained.

 

Has Barack Obama been truthful about his personal history? Sound off in the WND Poll.

 

In an appendix, Ndesandjo disputes as inaccurate and a fabrication much of what Obama presented as his African roots in “Dreams from My Father,” which was used to introduce his complex family story to the nation.

 

Ndesandjo’s mother was Ruth Baker, a Jewish Bostonian that Barack Obama Sr. met and married while pursuing graduate studies at Harvard. Barack Obama is the son of the Kenyan and his second wife, Stanley Ann Dunham, a white student he met while studying at the University of Hawaii.

 

Baker was a 1958 graduate of Simmons College in Boston with a degree in business.

 

Jerome Corsi’s “Where’s the REAL Birth Certificate” sorts out the Obama story and shows why he’s not eligible to be president

 

Commonly known as Ruth Nidesand in most Obama biographical accounts, she followed Barack Obama Sr. back to Africa and married him in Kenya in a civil ceremony Dec. 24, 1964.

 

After Baker divorced Barack Obama Sr., she and her two sons by Barack Obama Sr. took on the surname of their stepfather, Ndesandjo.

 

Ndesandjo’s new book enters the controversy over “Dreams,” which WND columnist Jack Cashill has argued not only contains fictional accounts but was written largely by former Weather Underground domestic terrorist and Marxist activist Bill Ayers.

 

Ndesandjo currently lives in Shenzhen, China, where he gives piano lessons to orphans.

 

He plans to be in the U.S. for two weeks in mid-September. He will launch “An Obama’s Journey” with a book signing Sept. 13 at a Barnes & Noble store in Manhattan’s Upper West Side neighborhood.

 

‘So close, yet so far’

Ndesandjo opens the book with a prelude that describes his meeting with his half-brother at the St. Regis hotel in Beijing in 2009.

 

“Hearing a sound behind me, I turned to see someone standing in the doorway, cast into shadow by the bright light from the corridor outside,” he wrote of first seeing Barack in China. “I recognized the outline of those big, mouse-like ears that always seem to stick out. He stepped into the light and I saw his calm, serious face.”

 

Impulsively, Ndesandjo hugged Barack.

 

“Suddenly, he hugged me back,” he continued the narrative.

 

“I detected a faint smell of cigarette smoke and knew that, in spite of his and Michelle’s best efforts, today he had been playing truant.”

 

At that meeting, Ndesandjo reflected back on a piece of Chinese calligraphy he had given Barack at a previous meeting, in Austin during the 2008 presidential campaign. It read: “So close, yet so far. So far, yet so near.”

Ndesandjo reflected that Obama was close to him in the elaborately decorated hotel meeting room in China, yet so far away emotionally.

 

“Yet could I honestly have expected that some old photographs, or even the novel I had written, would get my brother to open up to me for the first time?” he wrote.

 

“How could the beliefs he had clung to for decades, the entrenched admiration of an adult for his father, be in any way altered by the views of a brother he hardly knew?”

 

‘To me my father had always been dead’

 

Ndesandjo writes graphically of his father’s proclivity for domestic violence.

“We Obamas have big hands,” he wrote.

 

“They can be used to create or to debase. My hands enable me to comfortably reach across twelve keys and play piano well. My father would use his big hands to knock my mother down when he came home from a night of drinking. I would move protectively toward her and clutch her legs, crying. I know now why I mostly remember her legs, not her torso, or even her face.”

 

He writes of being woken up as a child in the middle of a Kenyan night:

 

“When I was abruptly woken up, I would see light streaming in around the sides of the door. There would be thumps and yells, often followed by the sound of my mother screaming in pain or anger. Once I heard a loud crash and rushed to the door of the living room. By the orange light I saw my mother on the floor and my father standing over her, his hands clenched.”

The memories of domestic violence haunt Ndesandjo even now.

 

“Now as an adult, when I try to remember more, it becomes painful for me and I close my mind. I can only imagine how it must have felt for a child, any child, to have been unable to protect the ones he loved the most. Every blow my father gave my mother I felt, and each time it seemed to shatter the safe world I was trying to construct for myself, through refuge in study or play.”

 

Ndesandjo writes compellingly of his father’s downward spiral working as a bureaucrat in the Kenyan government.

 

“By the end of his third marriage, Barack Obama Sr.’s once-bright spark had decayed into smoldering ashes,” he said.

 

“Under normal circumstances, my father’s brilliance would have propelled him to a magnificent, perhaps glorious, career. However, the nepotism and tribalism that were rife in the young republic of Kenya combined to raise obstacles in his path; his tactlessness and flamboyant behavior, plus the scars left behind by his own traumatic upbringing did the rest. The government jobs he was offered became more and more inconsequential.”

 

In one particularly insightful passage, Ndesandjo copes with the impact his white, Boston-bred mother and African father had on shaping his own psyche.

 

“His [Barack Obama Sr.’s] self-hatred and tendency toward self-sabotage was passed down and became part of my identity,” he confesses.

 

“My mother’s lily-white skin and my father’s ebony-black visage come to symbolize an eternal incompatibility in my mind’s eye. For a long time I hated to have anything to do with what my father represented, whether it was him personally, or even the positive aspects of African culture. In violent reaction to him, I turned passionately toward Western culture and music, which brought me a measure of solace.”

Barack ‘embraced his African side’

 

In 1988, after graduating from Brown University, Ndesandjo met Barack for the first time in an encounter in Kenya Ndesandjo describes as awkward at best.

 

Ndesandjo says he had not even known his older brother’s name until that moment. His mother annonced (sic) that Barack Obama from the United States was sitting on the living room couch, waiting to meet him.

 

“Who was this person?” Ndesandjo wrote, remembering his reaction to meeting the future president.

 

“What should I call him: Brother or Barack? Why did he want to see me? What could I possibly do for him? What did he want? There was a cold, empty feeling in the pit of my stomach. For some reason I felt like a fraud, imperfect, even impure.”

 

Ndesandjo asked his mother to tell Barack that he was not home, then, relenting, he sat down with Barack as their first meeting turned into looking over old family photo albums.

 

“Overall, it was a very awkward, cold meeting,” Ndesandjo recalled.

 

Referring to their father, he said it was as “though the skeleton that no one ever talked about had strayed into the middle of a family party.”

 

The next day, when they met a second time, Ndesandjo took a close look at his half-brother.

 

“Barack stood in front of the car, I believe a Volkswagen,” he wrote. “In the sunlight I could see him better than I had the last time. He was taller and thinner than me, with a huge mass of unkempt hair framing an angular face. His nose was large and broad, his eyes piercing and direct. His clothes again were very plain: a simple cotton shirt and green or pale blue trousers.”

 

Ndesandjo described their lunch together during that second day as filled with tension, as Barack struggled to embrace the African heritage of a father Ndesandjo had rejected. Ndesandjo had refused even to use the Obama name, unable to forget, as a child, experiencing the alcoholism and brutality of their father.

 

Today, U.S.-educated Ndesandjo is an accomplished brush calligrapher and pianist who has issued three CDs of his music.

 

In 2009, he published his first book, “Nairobi to Shenzhen: A Novel of Love in the East.”

 

He has created the Mark Obama Foundation Ltd. with the goal of fostering cultural exchanges between Asia, Africa and the U.S., with an emphasis on helping young people appreciate art.
