Believe Mahmoud Abbas – Believe a Liar

Mahmoud Abbas is the President of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). Abbas gave a two-hour in Ramallah – located in Judea-Samaria (West Bank to Arabs and much of the globe believing Israel is illegally occupying Arab land) – in response to President Trump notifying the world the U.S. Embassy is moving from Tel Aviv to Israel’s Capital City Jerusalem.

 

As you can guess, Abbas was less than pleased. The speech was chock full of historical revisionism and blatant lies pertaining Israel’s homeland and the existence of the fake people known as Palestinians. Arab domination of the Jewish Homeland didn’t begin until the mid-600s AD (yup, I’m a Christian preferring Anno Domini over Common Era – C.E.).

 

In order to get a better concept of the Promised Land’s legacy, here are a few titles to examine ending with a 9:44 video:

Media Whitewashes Abbas’ Revisionism and Rejectionism

 

By PESACH BENSON 

JANUARY 16, 2018

Honest Reporting

 

Mahmoud Abbas’ two-hour address to the central committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization was the diplomatic equivalent of giving the finger to Israel, the US and peace prospects.

 

The speech was expected to articulate the Palestinian leadership’s response to Trump’s Jerusalem declaration and threatened cuts of aid for refugees.

 

But given how long the talk was, it must have been a challenge for reporters to focus on sorting out the “news” from the “rambling.” Indeed, the PA president rejected US mediation, blamed Israel for the “death” of the Oslo accords, and dropped tidbits such as someone offering the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Dis to become the capital of a Palestinian state. (Abbas didn’t say who made the offer.)

 

But there was a bigger picture that the mainstream media snoozed through. What most journalists would consider the boring, long-winded digressions were actually part of a bigger pattern of historical revisionism and rejection of any place for the Jews in the Mideast.

 

Sign HonestReporting’s petition to the Foreign Press Association in Israel demanding reporters and editors give a fuller picture of Palestinian rejectionism and refusal to recognize Israel’s right to exist.

 

The Speech

 

The Ramallah audience of PLO cadres, VIPs and the foreign press was regaled with Abbas’ theories of how Israel was founded — not by Jews — but by European “colonialists,” with plans going as far back as Oliver Cromwell in 1653. He accused Israel of sending drugs to Palestinian kids. He ridiculed US Ambassador Nikki Haley’s high heels.

 

Theodor Herzl

 

And Abbas fabricated a quote to claim that Theodor Herzl, the father of modern Zionism, sought to exterminate Palestinians.

 

“We must wipe out the Palestinians from Palestine so that Palestine will be a land without a people for a people without a land.”

 

Abbas also claimed among other things, that the Jews of Europe chose to remain and die at the hands of the Nazis, that Jews from Iraq and Yemen were brought to Israel against their will, and that Israel was formed as “a colonial project that has nothing to do with Judaism” to safeguard European interests.

 

The PA chief also hurled an epithet at President Donald Trump, saying in Arabic, Yekhreb Beitak, which means “May God destroy your home.” A Palestinian media professional explained to me that home refers not just to the physical house, but the household — its people and possessions. It’s a term used when two people are in a dispute, and although Arabs may use the term somewhat casually among themselves, it’s not a line one would use in a diplomatic setting. That would explain why the Associated Press called it a “jarring” language.

 

It’s not the first time Abbas twisted history for his own purposes. His doctoral thesis, written as a student in Moscow, argued that the killed “only” one million Jews, that the Zionist leaders collaborated with the Nazis, and that Jewish leaders inflated the Holocaust’s death toll to six million for their own advantage.

 

But the overall thrust of the speech was to erase Jewish ties to the land of Israel.

 

The Coverage

 

Too many media reports whitewashed Abbas’ coverage. Perhaps editors didn’t attach enough importance to the speech to give their correspondents a longer word count, which might account for the short, sanitized reports by ReutersBBC NewsCNN and Sky News.

 

Other news services touched on Abbas’ rant, but didn’t delve into the significance, such as AFPThe IndependentIrish Times and the Financial Times.

 

While the New York Times gave a sense of the PA chairman’s verbosity, the paper unfortunately didn’t fact-check Abbas, giving a pass to the false quote.

Mahmoud Abbas

 

“Testing his audience’s attention, Mr. Abbas also gave a lengthy history lecture reaching back to the 17th century, saying that Oliver Cromwell had first proposed shipping European Jews to the Holy Land, before tracing the beginning of Zionism to what he called the 19th-century journalist and activist Theodor Herzl’s efforts to “wipe out Palestinians from Palestine.”

 

“This is a colonial enterprise that has nothing to do with Jewishness,” Mr. Abbas said. “The Jews were used as a tool under the concept of the promised land — call it whatever you want. Everything has been made up.”

 

Indeed, Abbas has made everything up.

 

Can you imagine the headlines if an Israeli head of state denied the existence of the Palestinian people? Or fabricated quotes?

 

While I didn’t see any news coverage of the speech in The Guardian, an Ian Black commentary fretted over how the speech would play into the hands of right-wing Israelis. And if I didn’t know any better, I’d say the Irish Independent took Associated Press reports one and two and scrubbed them.

 

Credit the Daily Telegraph and Washington Post for acknowledging Abbas being Abbas and getting fresh quotes from analysts to provide some meaning.

 

Palestinians may see Abbas as defiantly throwing down the gauntlet while Israelis see Abbas on the verge of imploding.

 

If there’s going to be peace, we need the press to step up and enlighten us on what Mahmoud Abbas really stands for.

Las Vegas Shooter Conspiracies CONFIRMED By FBI Release?!


The Conspiracy Theories surrounding Stephen Paddock’s connection to the Mandalay Bay/La Vegas massacre are legion. One Conspiracy Theory about being an arms dealer had been relegated to the realm of bizarre. BUT, some released FBI data has refueled the arms dealer theory.

Las Vegas Shooter Conspiracies CONFIRMED By FBI Release?!

 

By Andrew West

January 15, 2018

Constitution.com

 

From the moment that the news broke on that fateful October night, the Las Vegas shooting incident has been spawning a never-ending nest of new questions.

 

According to police, shooter Stephen Paddock was a retired, multimillionaire real estate investor and avid gambler.  His high roller status had Paddock on a first name basis in many of Sin City’s more luxurious locales, including the Mandalay Bay, where the soon-to-be murderer was set up in a lavish 32nd floor suite overlooking the Las Vegas Strip and a country music festival taking place across the street.

 

Then, again according to the partial narrative released by authorities, Paddock turned this glamorous hotel room into an elaborate sniper’s nest from which he would unleash countless rounds into the country music fans below.  When it was all said and done, 58 concert goers had lost their lives, Paddock was dead, and police were stumped.  Paddock left behind no note, no manifesto, and no clue as to what his motivation in the killing may have been.

 

The investigation that followed was largely off the radar, as police and federal agents shielded their work from the public eye.

 

Given the enormous brutality of the attack itself, and the silent treatment that the police were giving the media, the internet soon got to work constructing a number of bizarre conspiracy theories around the incident.  The most prevalent of these theories revolved around Paddock being an illegal arms dealer who was summoned to the luxury suite to await a high level deal for the cache of weapons he had with him.  In this story, we are led to believe that the “buyers” Paddock was dealing with were actually terrorists of some fashion, who then killed Paddock, unleashed Hell on Las Vegas, and magically escaped.

 

While this far fetched nonsense has laid dormant in the darker corner of the internet for weeks, a strange revelation in a newly released FBI document seems to indicated that Paddock may in fact have been an illegal arms dealer.

 

“One affidavit includes email exchanges between centralpark1@live.com, a Microsoft account that FBI authorities believe belonged to Paddock, and centralpark4804@gmail.com. (It is unclear if the FBI knows who is responsible for the latter account.) The messages were sent on July 6, 2017.

 

“The affidavit reads:

 

“‘…[centralpark1@live.com] sent an email to centralpark4804@gmail.com which read, “try an ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area,” Later the day, an email was received back from centralpark4804@gmail.com to [centralpark1@live.com] that read, “we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try.” And lastly, [centralpark1@live.com sent an email to centralpark4804@gmail.com that read, “for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.” Investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack that occurred at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.’

 

“The exchanges took place nearly three months before the onslaught. And CNN reports that ‘investigators at the time of the filing had been unable to determine if Paddock was sending emails between two accounts both belonging to himself, or was communicating with someone else.’”

 

The odd email addresses with “centralpark” included could be a clever ruse that Paddock was employing, or underground codes of the illegal arms trade.

 

The remaining bits of the story concocted by internet sleuths has yet to be corroborated in the slightest, leading many to believe that their guess regarding Paddock’s arms-dealing side job was just a lucky stab out of thin air.  Until we hear the final word from the FBI, however, few will be satisfied with the answers provided.

The Great Negotiator


Justin Smith and many Conservatives looking at President Trump’s willingness to negotiate on allowing illegal aliens to remain in America is viewed as a betrayal of one his campaign promises.

 

In my humble opinion some kind of give and take is necessary to end legislative gridlock. So, if illegals are proven working individuals that pay taxes, I don’t have a problem with amnesty. HOWEVER, if illegal aliens are living on taxpayer social programs, those illegal aliens need to receive the boot.

 

ALSO, if the Dems will not negotiate on effective border control – e.g. A WALL – Then blame the Dems and give all illegal aliens the boot. If illegal aliens cry racism, they should direct their anger toward recalcitrant Dems.

 

Thus, I am not totally on board with Justin, but in some ways, I am willing to be harsher with the blame falling squarely on the Dems.

The Great Negotiator

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/13/2018 4:28 PM

 

The negotiations on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), opened under a false sense of urgency by President Trump, the “stable genius” and “great negotiator”, and sixteen senators and seven House members, on Tuesday January 9, 2018 in an ineffectual move to protect 800,000 DACA recipients from potential deportation, once DACA ends on March 5th. These negotiations represent the lowest moment of the Trump presidency, nothing more and nothing less than another amnesty for illegal aliens and the Democrats’ first step towards a full amnesty for nearly forty million illegal aliens (government stats 11 to 12 million), a betrayal of America.

 

If the proposed Dream Act of 2017, the replacement bill of choice, introduced by Senators Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is any indication of the legislative “solution”, America will be forced to give 3.3 million illegal aliens a conditional lawful permanent resident status. Roughly 1.8 million would certainly become naturalized citizens over the next decade, if not sooner, with voting rights.

 

What happened to President Trump’s 2016 campaign promise to deport all illegal aliens?

 

The switch came after his advisors told him that this DACA amnesty is popular with both Democrats and liberal Republicans. He probably also noted left-leaning polls, like in Politico, that show 54 percent of Americans want to give the “Dreamers” a path to citizenship.

 

I stated in October 2015, that “Trump’s values shift like the changing of one’s underwear from day to day, depending on his personal agenda and who had his ear at the moment”. Ann Coulter, a conservative journalist, seemed to concur, as she recently stated, “The president cares only about his press, has no grasp of details of policy, and simply agrees with the last person to speak.”

 

Under no illusions, one might wish to see our leaders vote to deport all illegal aliens, but the reality of the matter suggests some form of amnesty will be passed eventually, unless there is a loud and massive opposition immediately voiced. While House Republicans are forcefully pushing President Trump’s demands on the wall and heightened security, along with the addition of thousands of federal immigration enforcement officers and judges and E-Verify, through the Goodlatte-McCaul bill, the Senate is prepared to give amnesty in exchange for nothing.

 

The Goodlatte-McCaul bill also ends chain migration and the diversity visa lottery, which allowed the last two Islamic terrorists into the country and the attacks on New York City. It allows the Justice Department to withhold grants from sanctuary cities too.

 

It should also be noted, that after the Department of Homeland Security detained a DACA recipient with gang ties, early in 2017, it acknowledged revoking the DACA status of over 1500 recipients, due to criminal conviction or gang affiliation. How many other criminals have evaded the department’s scrutiny?

 

To his credit, President Trump stated: “It has to be a bill where we’re able to secure our border. Drugs are pouring into our country at a record pace. A lot of people coming in that we can’t have.”

 

Congress could accomplish the same things, without granting a blanket amnesty, if they really wanted to do so, couldn’t they? But the liberals of both parties aren’t working for America, are they?

 

Curiously, the Great Negotiator’s negotiating skills are less than impressive, given Republicans hold the House, the Senate and the presidency. It is the Democrats, not the president, who are driving a hard bargain.

 

The Dreamers have no right to be here in the first place, since they or their parents broke U.S. law, and they deserve that right even less, when they display 1794 maps of Mexico and wave the Mexican flag in our streets. They have no say over anything America chooses to grant them; and yet, these Dreamers beseech our Congress for America’s solicitude and benevolent care, while standing on the steps of our state houses and at the Capital in D.C. and demand that any DACA replacement legislation be a “clean” bill.

 

During the meeting, when Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked President Trump if he would “be agreeable” to a “clean” bill, it was obvious that he didn’t understand that meant leaving out his demands, like more border security and the wall, because he replied: “Yeah … I would like to do that. Go ahead. I think a lot of people would like to see that, but I think we have to do DACA first.”

 

Representative Kevin McCarthy, a liberal Republican, interceded, fortunately. He clarified for the President that he was, in fact, acquiescing to an amnesty bill absent any border security provisions.

 

Later, flanked by Senator Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD), President Trump said: “We’ll do DACA and we can certainly start comprehensive immigration reform the following afternoon. Okay? We’ll take an hour off and then we’ll start.” Whether the president understood it or not, “comprehensive immigration reform” stands for amnesty.

 

To be clear, Congress has no moral or legal obligation or responsibility to grant amnesty to anyone who violated our immigration laws or knowingly put their children in an awful legal predicament. Let the March 5th deadline pass, let deportations proceed, and let the Dreamers sort it out, case by case, in immigration court, like they should have done over all these years.

 

Complicating negotiations further is a decision by a liberal activist judge in San Francisco on Tuesday evening, January 9th, that temporarily banned the Trump administration from ending DACA. Until Congress takes immigration policy matters out of the Courts’ jurisdiction, invoking that right under Article III of the Constitution, our borders will never be fully secured and illegals will continue to arrive at our borders en masse.

 

This DACA bill and any general amnesty for the total millions of other illegal aliens helps and benefits the illegal alien population and the Democratic Party only. Within a year of being granted residency or a path to citizenship, activist judges will grant full citizenship, and the bulk of these illegals will expand the Democratic voter base, setting aside all of Trump’s “wins” and border security gains; and Democratic Socialists will get to take permanent control of U.S. elections, laws and governments, for decades to come.

 

A recently leaked memo from the Center For American Progress reads, in part: “The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also  a critical component to the Democratic Party’s electoral success … “.

 

An attempt to destroy our borders forever more is still underway as “elite” liberals from both parties, backed by U.S. and global billionaires, seek to force American citizens towards a regional and then global governance. They present America a false solution, in these DACA proposals, on the pretext it serves America’s interests and does not harm our society at large, for their own self-interest, and these members of Congress, who are supposed to represent Americans, not illegal aliens, are eroding and undermining the sanctity of the entire legal system and, by extension, our Republic.

I’m running with the WND story on Facebook censorship, but should note that Breitbart claims Facebook is backing off on the censorship if “crowdfunding” for the movie. However, the Breitbart story shows how Facebook took crowdfunding page down, then restored the page and then took it down again. Ergo, as of this post, who knows how many times Facebook will remove and restore.

FACEBOOK BLOCKS FUNDING FOR MAJOR PRO-LIFE MOVIE

Theatrical drama to tell ‘true story’ of Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood

 

By ART MOORE

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger

 

A crowdfunding site for a theatrical drama in production that promises to tell the “true story” of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that established a “right” to abortion has been blocked by Facebook.

 

The movie’s producer, Nick Loeb, told WND the content of the pro-life movie, which exposes Planned Parenthood’s roots in the eugenics movement, clearly is the reason for the censorship.

 

Actor and producer Nick Loeb

“They have even blocked people sharing the ads I paid for,” Loeb said.

 

“This is stealing or fraud.”

 

Facebook has not responded to requests for an explanation.

Loeb told WND he and his colleagues are looking for a lawyer to take on the case.

 

Learn the tested and proven strategies to defeat the abortion cartel in “Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time.”

 

The executive producer of the movie is Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and the head of the group Civil Rights for the Unborn.

 

The film features Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight as a Supreme Court justice.

 

On the film’s Indiegogo crowdfunding page, the makers describe it as “the real untold story of how people lied; how the media lied; and how the courts were manipulated to pass a law that has since killed over 60 million Americans.”

 

“Many documentaries have been made, but no one has had the courage to make an actual feature film, a theatrical movie about the true story.”

 

The producers, calling it the “most important pro-life movie in history,” say Hollywood “only wants you to hear their version of the story,” noting there are three movies in development that take a pro-abortion stance.

 

“But you shouldn’t be surprised. Hollywood has always had an agenda to influence Americans to accept abortion, even if they have to re-write history to do it.”

The movie opens with Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, speaking about her “Negro project” initiative aimed at reducing the growth of African-American population in the United States.

 

It continues as abortionist Bernard Nathanson joins with famed feminist-activist Betty Friedan and Planned Parenthood to recruit for a legal case “a broke girl with a 10th grade education named Norma McCorvey,” who became known as “Jane Roe.”

 

The opposition to the activists seeking to legalize abortion is led by the film’s protagonist, Mildred Jefferson, the first African-American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School, who believed “that she became a doctor to protect life, not destroy it.”

 

Later, Nathanson, through the help of new sonogram technology, “realizes he is killing babies, confesses to all the lies and becomes a leading activist in the pro-life movement,” and McCorvey, realizing she had been manipulated, also joins the pro-life cause.

 

Internet freedom

 

WND reported last month censorship of Christian and conservative speech online by tech companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google and Apple is the target of an initiative called Internet Freedom Watch, launched by the National Religious Broadcasters.

 

The initiative has established a website, InternetFreedomWatch.org, to document cases, including Twitter’s removal of an ad by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., in October and Facebook’s removal of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s post supporting Chick-fil-A in 2012.

 

NRB, which has published a chart with more than 30 instances of Internet censorship, said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and a former Federal Communications Commission commissioner have endorsed the effort.

 

FCC chairman Ajit Pai has accused Twitter and other tech companies of being disingenuous by arguing for a free and open Internet while they “routinely block or discriminate against content they don’t like.”

 

NRB also wants Congress to hold hearings on the “severe problem of viewpoint censorship on the Internet.”

 

In a recent case noted by Internet Freedom Watch, PJ Media D.C. editor Bridget Johnson was suspended from Twitter with no warning or explanation.

 

WND reported in August that days after the launch of a book arguing fascism and Nazism are ideological spawns of the left, author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza and his promotion team were locked out of his Facebook page by hackers.

Intro to ‘The Gravity of Mohammed’ & ‘Professional Ignorance’


Intro by John R. Houk

Titles by Bill Warner, PhD

© January 12, 2018

I am on Dr. Bill Warner’s Political Islam email list. Warner has a Doctorate from North Carolina State University in Physics and Mathematics from 1968. Yet his present-day bread and butter is exposing the darker side of Islam. Indeed, Warner is one of the foremost researching experts on Islam today.

 

Exposing Islam comes with a price in this day and age of Leftist inspired political correctness. Leftists and Muslim Apologists do their utmost to disqualify Warner with the accusations of hate mongering racist. These Leftist/Muslim critics rarely take a critical argument Warner uses in exposing Islam to contradict him. Rather the basis for their criticism is Warner’s enlightening essays, books and videos that directly take Islam in the actual context of the Quran, Hadith and Sira (Sunnah = Sira + Hadith) from the days those manuscripts became accepted and revered by Muslims and demonstrates Islam is much more political in objectives rather than religious.

 

Warner’s critics claim he takes the revered writings out of context which is a taqiyya/kitman lie. It is the Muslim Apologist that their theopolitical assertions out of context by cherry picking a Surah or a revered comment from the Hadith or Sira to appear as religious, yet when read in the original context the religious aspect becomes subservient to Islam’s political aspect.

 

Next the Leftist/Muslim Apologist coalition will criticize Bill Warner by exposing his legit name as Bill French. I don’t have specific knowledge for the reason for the pseudonym Bill Warner, but I have an excellent guess.

 

Critics of Islam have faced death and the threat of the death from practitioners of the Religion of Peace. Until exposed publicly, a pseudonym helps in the protection of life and limb. An example of other famous Counterjihadists with pseudonyms are Fjordman and Brigitte Gabriel.

 

Well, this is meant to be an intro to the Political Islam email received 1/12/2018 7:46 AM. The email begins with a short essay about Sharia in Iran and the eruption of Iranian protestors displeased with the rule of a theopolitical Ayatollah (let’s call it a Mullahcracy). Warner compares Iran under the Westernization under the Shah and the medieval Sharia instituted in the Mullahcracy.

 

The second part of the email is a link to a teaching video on which essentially reflects on the idiotic Leftist/Muslim Apologist race-baiting manipulation of the word Islamophobia framing political correctness. Along with the video there is a transcript of said video. All provided below.

The Gravity of Mohammed

 

By Bill Warner

January 11, 2018

Political Islam

 

The protests in Iran are not only about economics and politics, they’re also about Islam. Iran in the 1960’s saw mini skirts, smiling women with uncovered hair, men and women freely holding hands on university campuses, and in the air, there was a sense that progress was possible. Then the Shah was deposed during the 1979 Islamic Revolution, and the Ayatollah and imams came to power. Iran had been purified, returned to its Islamic roots of Mohammed. Today, we are witnessing the Persian people rise up again against the Iranian Islamic regime and say “no more”. How will this play out?

 

Over the 1400 years of Islam, there is a pattern that can be observed that I call THE GRAVITY OF MOHAMMED. It can be visualized as a cycling wave graph, or a sine wave (see figure below). An Islamic nation will cycle between secularism and hard line Sharia, a push and pull of modernity vs Mohammed or civilizations retracting and embracing the perfect example of Mohammed. It is hard to escape the Sunna of Mohammed which the Sharia implements. As long as you have the remnants of Islam in a society, Mohammed will always return. Said another way, as long as a society believes Mohammed is the prophet of Allah, Sharia will return.

 

Examples of this are Turkey and Iran. Turkey under Ataturk pulled away from Mohammed, only to return with Erdogan. Iran pulled away from Sharia under the Shah only to return under the Ayatollah, and now there is a good possibility that the Persians may push away from the Sharia again. However, this will surely be temporary as the only way to destroy rule by Sharia is to destroy the belief that Mohammed is the prophet of Allah (the Shahada). Thus, the Gravity of Mohammed predicts that although Iran will pull away from Sharia for now, and maybe for years to come, it will fall back again to its Islamic roots. Like gravity, Mohammed is always there.

Professional Ignorance [Transcript]

 

By Bill Warner

January 10, 2018

Political Islam

 

This is a talk given to political leaders. It covers how universities, law enforcement, clergy, politicians and military are not protecting our civilization via their professional ignorance.

 

Institutions are failing and not doing their due diligence to learn and explain the true nature of political Islam. The problem is not Islam. We are the problem.

 

The transcript (done with automatic speech to text software):

Well if any of you all have seen me before you know what I’m going to talk about the same thing I always talk about which is political Islam. I thought I would talk about it this time with what was going on in local politics and in our local school system. For those of you who don’t know me you’re looking at one of America’s most famous. Actually at one time I was in the top 10 of racist or bigot Islamophobia in America. And that ain’t easy. But we did it anyway. Now the reason I’m called a racist hater bigot Islamophobia is what I do as I talk about what Muhammad said and did what Allah says in the Koran.

And for these telling these stories is what gets me the benefit of being a racist hater bigot Islamophobia. And I’ll put it to you that if you’re not a racist hater bigot Islamophobia you’re not doing your political job. Well. In local politics. Recently when Ray asked me to talk I said what I want to talk about. So I decided to talk about the first thing that popped up in front of me which was we had another multicultural moment in the schools and education which was TMAG school went to the Twelfth Avenue mosque to receive their dose of moderate Islam.

And what I want to tell you is what happened what didn’t happen and why it should happen. All right here’s what did happen. The person who gave the lecture to the children from the school was a former Christian convert to Islam. And she tells me that Muslims honor Jesus they honor that this whole event is about critical thought Abraham as the prophet of the Jews Christians and Islam. They honor all the prophets and that the children in front of her were her brothers and sisters. Mary wore a job Jesus will return and fight the anti christ. Jihad is an inner struggle and that Islam is all about the free will. And conservative politicians are haters. So you didn’t know you were being talked about down the cloth have any mosques. So this is what happened. Now what is wrong with this.

I don’t mind somebody standing and staying there. But here’s what did not happen. No one stood up and was able to ask her any questions or tell her you call us your brothers and sisters and yet there are 12 verses in the Koran which say that a Kaffir a non muslim is never the friend of a Muslim. How does this work out? So this is the kind of question that should be asked if this were all about critical thinking and critical learning. Now then. They would also if they were trained well enough to ask questions would find out that although a creature called Jesus is in the Koran His name is Isa. And he is not the Jesus of the Gospels. But no one was able to ask this question nor did the students even know to ask this question. Nor did they even know to ask the question if Abraham is the father of your religion how come the Abraham in the Koran is not the same as the Abraham in the Old Testament. Just a small question perhaps. Now then critical thought involves debate.

You made.

You may remember debates I don’t know but anyway debate is involved in critical thought and sitting there listening to one side of an argument not the other is not what you call critical thought. Now then.

Let’s talk about the jihad.

That’s the J word.

She told them that jihad was the inner struggle and that all members of all religions have an inner struggle to lose weight to not lose their temperature lose their temper or something else. We all have things and we want to correct in our life and this is the inner struggle but no one was able to ask the question if jihad is the inner struggle how common the Hadith which are the traditions of Muhammad. Only 2 percent of the Hadith involving jihad are about inner struggle. Ninety eight percent of the jihad is traditions are about killing gaffer’s but no one was there to ask that question. And by the way on the question of free will there is a verse or two in the Koran which states that an individual has free will but. 98 percent roughly is everything is in Allah’s hands. So if all is determining what I’m to say next to my sentence whereas my free will.

Now then who is going to Islam succeeds to the method of not telling lies and telling half truths. There is a similarity to Isa in the Koran with Jesus. It’s just that he’s not the same person. By the way when Isa returns Jesus is supposed to return. Isa is going to kill the pig and break the cross. And those who do not convert to Islam will be sent straight to hell under his rulership. He’ll get married have children and then die and he prays behind Mohammad. When the imams pray in front of the law. So we don’t get the full story. And I don’t object to them telling half sorry what I object to is that no one was there to tell them the other half of the story.

I’m not for a suppression of speech I’m just for having the whole speech talked about. Now then. This is part of a civilizational war. And I use this term and that precise definition. This is a war between our civilization has as its ultimate foundation two principles and intellectual principle critical thought.

Or debate and argument. The other principle is an ethical principle of a uniform ethical unitary ethic. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you which others all others. So that is the corner the ethical cornerstone. And by the way this ethical Cornerstone only lets us have a form of government. Which is quite flexible and adaptable. When the Constitution was written slaves were not able to vote and of slavery was permitted. But what has happened through the application of the golden rule is that blacks were freed from slavery all slavery was prohibited because if you think about it who here wants you can put an ad for a slave on Craig’s List. And who’s going to respond to it. Nobody wants to be a slave. So the application of the Golden Rule to our constitution as an ethical principle allows us to adapt and change always on the basis. If I were a woman would I want to vote yes, I would. Therefore I think women should have a vote. This is an ethical principle.

Islam teaches a different form of ethics which using the Sharia ethics of dualism. That is a Sharia court Kafir a non Moslem cannot even appear and talk in front of the court is not allowed to bear witness. So if you’re a kafir and you want to appear in court you have to find a Muslim who’s willing to stand in your place. You actually pay him to be your witness and you don’t know if he’ll testifies you’d like to or not. So our civilisation is based on unitary ethics and critical thought. Islam is based on dualistic ethics were how you treated it depends on who you are and it depends not on critical thought but are authoritative thought in Islamic civilisation. No idea is allowed to contradict what is in the Koran and the Sharia. So therefore this is two different civilizations.

And they cannot coexist. It just doesn’t work. If we’re if we’re to find out if knowledge is to be based on the Koran why debate about it. That is there’s no room for critical thought and authoritative thought. There is no room for a golden rule. And in a dualistic form of ethics. So this is a civilizational war that’s being fought and it is a civilizational war because Islam is the most brilliant political power political group you’ve ever met. They change headscarves into war. They change food halal food they change prayer whether it’s in the street or in a mosque or a school. Everything is adaptable for pushing against the Kaffir. Now then. This should not be a problem.

The problem is not Islam. We are the problem because who is not there for instance when they are the major carriers of our civilization our government law enforcement military churches and schools all of these are failing all of them are failing. They’re not doing their job. Many of these children who went to the Maggs mosque.

Have a church they go to and they were not explained to them the true nature of Islam. Because inside the churches there’s been a decision we just don’t talk about that. It upsets people so as a result the church does not prepare children for what they experience. There was Dawa the AWB no church teaches the principles of Dawa to its congregation. So therefore children are secretly joining Islam even in the schools because they were not prepared for what they were being told. These children should have been able to stand up and ask questions if they had gone to a church. That’s just what I think. But they are not told to do that at church. Now let’s talk about. And I call the pastors and most churches being professionally ignorant. They’re not just amateur and ignorant. You can read Yahoo News and learn more about Islam. The average pastor will tell you that he knows. Now then.

Here’s a story from what happened in Tennessee advised one university to reflect what the churches are doing or not doing. Remember this was an event by the Muslim Student Association and they brought in an FBI counterterrorism expert.

We’ll deal more of that in a moment. They also stood and sat in front of the audience. The head of the NSA Muslim Student Association said We have one in Tennessee. All the churches including the fundamentalist churches now accept Islam as a form of religion. So the Muslims are telling their own we’ve defeated the church in Middle Tennessee. Now in.

This kind of terrorism expert let’s talk about why law enforcement is doing or not doing. We explain a little bit about how the counterterrorism aspect of law enforcement was done in the FBI after 9/11 George Bush said to the FBI. We know 110 percent of the FBI agents to be put in the new counter-terrorism unit. Now. Let’s say that you’re an agent in charge in China. You have agents working on the FBI agents are difficult to fire and get rid of because of Civil Service protected but now then you have a way to get rid of the bottom 10 percent of all your law enforcement agencies and the FBI. So this is the cold hard truth of what happens to the counterterrorism because it seems sensical. Of course it does. Now then at the same time I say that there was someone who stood up and asked this counterterrorism expert says Have you ever read the hadith. No didn’t know what it was. Have you read the Koran? Well I’ve had an e-mail from explained some verses to me.

So this is what we have in this one no Muslim Student Association meeting is we have an FBI agent said I don’t. But I’m an expert and we have the Muslims bragging about the fact that they have defeated the churches in Middle Tennessee. And you know what. I don’t think they’re bragging.

Here’s another thing about the churches. I. Bobbie portray taught me how to do lobbying the legislature not to tag along behind her for a while. When she moved to the wake swinish told me I do lobbying and so I tried. I says you know what I want a resolution to come out of the Tennessee legislature condemning the persecution of Christians in Islamic countries. So I went to a legislator who is favorable to the cause gave her my idea and she wrote it up for me. She says this is great this will be easy to pass. Well there was one thing that was not easy to pass and that was Turkey who was mentioned as a persecutor of a Christian. There was a big pushback from the legislators about naming turkey. You see the Turkish Chamber of Commerce has a heavy influence on the legislature.

Now then here’s what I did not do. I did not go under the direction of pastors or anything and say Can you help push on the legislators so that we can include Turkey because they kill the Armenian Christians. I didn’t even bother thinking about that. Why. Because it’s useless to do.

So therefore I just said take Turkey out. So this is an example of what’s going on because the churches are not properly trained and by the way there is a story about the legislature model books which I sell in the back of the room or a little because of being down to the legislature. We were trying to pass a bill that was about Sharia law. And I realize in listening to the senators that they had too much to read. So when I got through the thing I went home to call our printer says how many pages are in one eighth of one inch 62 pages.

So I wrote a 62 page reload book I’ve sold tens of thousands of them. So when you get down to the legislature you can learn a lot that can be very useful to you. And as a consequence it took all my big books and made little books out of them as well. Now I’ve said them 10 and 20 to 1. So it was not a total loss for me. But do you understand what I’m telling you that I wouldn’t even try to go out and raise that pastor’s trouble about a resolution talking about condemning persecuting Christians. What do you think about doing that.

Why bother. They don’t want to get involved. The Muslims want to get involved. Oh yes they do. Big time. Now then. This was a school event. What’s the school’s actually be teaching. You’re going to be surprised when I tell you I think the schools should teach Koran zero hadith and Sharia. Straight up. You don’t need to. You don’t even need to comment about it. When you read sir for 24 and it says that a Muslim can beat his wife. You know you really don’t do a lot of explanation of that and I think that every child should know that that is possible to do. So I am not for suppression of speech. I am for all out speech including let’s read the Koran and see what’s in it. You can read for yourself the 12 verses say that a Muslim is never your true friend. We’re read to comment about that. Just teach the actual facts.

60 million Christians have died and yet when you go to a church school you won’t learn anything about it. And by the way it’s true to my knowledge of all church schools. Speaking of schools I did a little research project for a senator and my research project was to find out how Islam was being teach the teacher. I can do better. That was being taught. In our school system. I was surprised at the insolence and arrogance. Of the universities in dealing with the senator. There were like What do you want this catalogue for. Who’s doing this. Why should we give you one? Who is this.

This was the senator. So a gentleman who was here earlier I don’t see him now.

When he talks about the fact that UT is not under the control of the legislature. It is not. To my knowledge no one is controlling our state universities. Think about that. And I think that is our own problem as well.

I talked to a Vanderbilt professor who teaches Sharia law. She doesn’t know Hadith from haggis. But she does. She said. She was simply a law professor and the head of the department said you’re going to be teaching Sharia law. I said Well that’s interesting. So you teach Sharia law and you don’t teach Koran. You don’t teach Siri don’t teach hadith. Now. I said What do you teach about jihad. She says no we don’t teach you about that. Is. What we teach about women’s rights. We don’t teach about that. What do you teach. She says Wills and business law. So this is from Vanderbilt University. This is what being taught there. What I would like to see is that the state schools would teach the Koran and Hadith of private schools will do it.

Then as we have here Jackie can tell you more about this than I can the textbooks in Tennessee now do not reflect our civilization but they reflect the civilization of Islam. Jackie.

Who did this. We did it to ourselves in the sense that when you look notice something about Islam how brilliant it is that Muslims don’t do the actual work. We do the work for them. The textbook company was owned by cappers. This money went to cavern’s everyone Kaffir is a non Muslims. And yet here they are hiring any mom to vet everything that they do. So Islam is not the problem. We are the problem. I just keep coming back to that. We’re getting the short end of a stick because we even grab the stick.

I want to say something about homes schools and private schools that are bad idea for the civilization. There is a good idea for your family. But there is a bad idea for the civilization because those who are powerful enough and wealthy enough to put their children in their own school then just sort of say bye bye to the school system. So as a result those who could be politically powerful in influence the school system is saying nope we’re taking our children out of it. Now this is the best decision for your family. But it’s a bad decision for the civilization because it’s a fortress kind of concept instead of controlling all the territory.

We just put up a wall and say we controlled what’s in this wall that wall will get smaller and smaller and smaller. Now then. Tell us something about the media that affects me. Right now. I’m a presence on the Well my idea of doing my business and by the way if I’m going to deal with Islam I have to have a source of money. I’m not paid with taxes. If I’m going to get money it comes from this. So what I did was I started myself a business on books. The idea was that the Web would be a place in which I would try to get the newsletters out of videos. It was a level playing field and I could succeed. And I did. I created a quite profitable tax book company you a textbook company although I do view them as textbooks. Not so much anymore. You know why. We you what’s happening on the web. I invented the term political Islam.

And if you put it in google the actual search engine Google that used to be six months ago that I own the top three screens outdid all.

It was all my turf. Not so much anymore. Two thirds of those are gone. He hung on paranoid. Well of course I’m paranoid but there’s another issue which is Google has stated as a matter of corporate policy that they will suppress those who criticize Islam and elevate those who praise Islam. So therefore a corporate policy is the playing field is not level anymore. I used to get about a thousand new members of Twitter every month. Now 300. I post on Facebook. Now then I get a peculiar kind of phone call an e-mail from people, Bill how come you are putting out a new video every two weeks? Oh I am. Oh well I’m a follower of yours on YouTube and Facebook and I don’t get notified. So what they’re doing is not banning me they’re just cutting off the oxygen. Facebook Twitter Google. All of them. Have. And it’s not just me in particular.

It’s anybody who’s on the southern poverty law centers handbook of hatred bigot Islamophobia press the Southern Poverty Law Center has a different concept now. The first concept was will shame these people put them on a list. And so it used to be when I was on the Southern Poverty Law Center was like finding my name on a truckstop say for a good time call Bill. Yeah yeah but now then the Southern Poverty Law Center has a new idea that’s driving these bigots out of business. And so they’ve gone to the Silicon Valley Megatron Mega Man mega manias and they’ve said let’s put these guys out of business. So I’m not the only one who’s getting bad calls on the web. So as a result and I have to look at another way of selling my books. Let’s talk about the military.

Juman [???] not mention the dirty word of the military now with the military supposed to defend us right. The dirty word McMaster.

Our military does not study the history of jihad. West Point and Annapolis do not teach the history of jihad. They don’t teach the major Jihad riders. They should because you’ll find some interesting things to learn a general in the military and that includes the Islamic State sees all combat as virtually civilizational war and a religious war and that the critical thing is to destroy the enemy’s faith. Let’s go back to what I was saying about the churches.

That the churches have committed suicide on their own faith. They’re lukewarm than either hot or cold. And in Islam that is the first place to try to take down a civilization is in its religion.

But military doesn’t study this. The military studies kinetic war bullets and bombs. Are not against bullets and bombs but there are other forms of fighting wars. And if all your military is capable of doing it’s fighting with bullets and bombs they’re going to lose because the enemy is going to defeat him with another method. General Stanley McChrystal who is there for a while under Obama was his top man for Afghanistan wrote up an entire paper on how to defeat Islam how to win in Afghanistan. I think it was a title that was heavily redacted for tactical purposes. That is personal names were taken out. There were three words that did not occur in this document. Those three words are Islam jihad and Muslim. They are going to defeat an enemy in the longest lasting war we’ve had. And you’re never going to mention those three words.

This is not to demean McMaster. I’m not a master. Stanley McChrystal he probably has never been told about this himself or if he knows about it he knows he can’t talk about it. So the military is not doing a good job either. As a matter of fact. The only people who are doing a good job in resisting Islam are rooms filled to people like yourself. Oh.

Another personal thing by the way is an attribute to who I am. There’s been recently some talk about one of the things that the FBI used to do is they used to train people. People like myself and Spencer would write position papers white papers for the FBI.

Then under was it Bush or Obama. They were pretty much the same on this issue. I forget who it was. No no. I mean I hate to break that to you about the first man who was fired from being in the military knowing what Islam was with Steve Kathlyn. And he was fired under Bush. So anyway I think that law enforcement you know what Islam is I think the military should know what Islam is. I think the churches should know what Islam is. I think the average citizens you know what Islam is. And if you do all of these things you’ll be like me you’ll become a racist hater bigot.

Now by the way I laugh at the concept that this is a very effective weapon. It keeps most people shot up. The average pastor does not want to be seen in print that he is an Islamophobic although he can’t. No one can define that term for me. Can you. What is an Islamophobic. You’re afraid of wife beating and jihad. Torturous death. Me too. Now then. I want to say a couple things about myself because I can’t win this war. I’ll go into small groups I go to Europe and I give talks like this Some better some worse. I can’t do this. I mean who else is beating the bushes on Islam here in Tennessee. Well there’s Kathy Henares. And we might and you in jail. Maybe a half a dozen people but we cannot possibly win this war because you see we’re just irritants.

So we have to have a way of bringing in groups and that’s the reason I’m saying that in particular the church should become our most powerful weapon. A winning feels good. I recommend it. But the idea of becoming a racist hater bigot will suppress most people’s opinions that just shut up because they don’t want to be called that. Now let me give you a little good news because everything I told you here is bad news. The reason I tell you nothing but bad news, is I do not know any good news about Islam in America. I mean I had some hope when. Trump won but he’s turned out to be not so good on the subject other than putting off another occasional irritating tweet. But he chose McMaster to be charge of basically what is it intelligence. What is MacMasters actual right. National security adviser. When your national security adviser thinks there’s good Muslims and bad Muslims and the Islamic State are not really Muslims you’re not going to go anywhere.

The good news is this an organization in Europe and there are several attributes it has which this group does not. It’s called Center for the Study of Political Islam international and it’s centered in Czech Republic Slovakia Poland Hungary and Austria and Germany. Now when I talk to them the room looks very different. They’re all under the age of 35.

All of them. I’m the oldest man in the room. I usually I’m the oldest man in the room anyway. But in this case I’m by far the oldest man in the room. And so I was curious why is it that in Central Europe they oppose this law. Why is it that Orbán who’s the head of Hungary will say we do not want any migrants? We don’t need them. How come they tell the truth. In Central Europe. We see Central Europe remember something called the Soviet Union. They were under the boot heel of Soviet Union. And the group and Bruno check. One man told me the story of how his father could not go to college because he was a merchant under the Soviets. Another man told me how his uncle was killed by the KGB as they said we know tyranny.

We have seen tyranny. We remember tyranny. And Islam is tyranny with a god. So there is hope. What’s happening is they’re translating my books into for my books like Sharia law for non Muslim who translated into 20 languages now. Being translated and also we have influence there with political parties. Not fringe elements like this meeting at a fairground meeting in Legislative Plaza. I gave a talk to the F.D. which is now the third ranking party in Germany executive committee and the title of the talk was using proper language. TOI gave them a talk on how to not how to talk not about Muslims but about Islam political Islam. Not religious Islam. How to talk about the principles of Islam and its political principles. When the talk was over. One of the members came up and said to me I can now see after your talk we will never defeat Islam using our methods and that the only method will work are yours.

Now this isn’t a personal attaboy it’s just that I was the first person ever to talk to him and knew anything about Islam and using proper words. So there are freedom parties now which are rising in Europe France Germany Austria Poland Czech Republic Slovakia and Romania. So what I’m saying is in Europe it’s different because they’re the threat is.

It is in your face. It is interesting to walk see a bunch of women pushing strollers with a black bag on. It’s demoralizing.

And now then Austria has made it illegal to wear the niqab. So we find that where people are closer to the edge work is being done.

So I think what is happening in America is right. They are not here yet. OK. I’ll tend to that later. I’m going on a diet after Christmas and it starts I’m gonna stop smoking in the fall. So dealing with Islam has this quality to it.

About Political Islam

 

What is Islam?

 

Islam is a cultural, religious and political system. Only the political system is of interest to kafirs (non-Muslims) since it determines how we are defined and treated. The Islamic political system is contained in the Koran, the Hadith (the traditions of Mohammed) and his biography, the Sira.

 

CSPI

 

Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI) is an educational organization dedicated to enlightening the general public about the doctrine of political Islam based on the works of Dr. Bill Warner.

 

Our Mission

 

Political Islam has subjugated other civilizations for 1400 years. Our mission is to educate the world about political Islam, its founder Mohammed, his political doctrine and his god, Allah.

Pakistani Christians: Voiceless and Leaderless


Several days ago, Shamim shared about the U.S./Pakistan foreign affairs dispute over the State Department placing Pakistan on a special watch list relating to violations of religious freedom.

 

Shamim is a brave Pakistani Christian willing to criticize Pakistan’s lack of human rights against religious minorities. In Pakistan if you are not a Sunni Muslim, you can expect horrid discrimination up to and including violence, rape or even murder. Pakistani victims of this designation are often ignored in the legal system and oft times face the law for reporting victimizing crimes.

Pakistani Christians: Voiceless and Leaderless

ISLAMABAD: There is an uproar in Pakistan after placing its name on a Special Watch List by the United States on the issue of religious freedom and Pakistan rejected U.S. decision and considered it as “Politically motivated”. Pakistan said on Friday that it “rejects the U.S. designation” and that the report is “not based on objective criteria”. “This placement on special watch list is a new categorization and we would be seeking clarification from the U.S. regarding its rationale and implications,” a statement from Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

 

“It is surprising that countries that have a well-known record of systematic persecution of religious minorities have not included in the list,” the statement added. “This reflects the double standards and political motives behind the listing and hence lacks credibility.”

 

Earlier in a statement, issued on Thursday, January 4, 2018, the U.S. state department added Pakistan to a Special Watch List, while re-designating a group of other countries as being of “particular concern” on the issue of religious freedom. The State Department spokesman, Heather Nauert said in a statement that the number of governments infringe upon individuals’ ability to adopt, change, or renounce their religion or belief.” “In for too many places around the globe, people continue to be persecuted, unjustly prosecuted, or imprisoned for exercising their right to freedom of religion or belief”.

 

Under the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998, the U.S. annually designates countries of particular concern, and Thursday’s statement re-designated Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. “The Secretary also placed Pakistan on a Special Watch List for severe violations of religious freedom,” Nauert said.

 

Let me tell you; though it makes no difference if the U.S. places Pakistan on a Special Watch list, but there are some facts which cannot be denied. Pakistan was declared an Islamic Republic where both the President and Prime Minister were required to be Muslims and Islam was the state religion. It promotes a certain Islamic mindset and the constitution called for the setting up of a Council of Islamic Ideology, comprising religious scholars and experts, to enforce the repugnancy clause. And number of discriminatory laws e.g. blasphemy laws are added in the constitutions against religious minorities and thus minorities are being targeted and facing challenges in Pakistan.

 

Now it is not only the matter of religious freedom for minorities but women are also suffering the same. Pakistan is the fourth worst country for women according to recently released ranking of the Women, Peace and Security Index. Isn’t it a fact that minorities in Pakistan are being unjustly prosecuted, or imprisoned for exercising their rights to freedom of religion or belief? According to the World Report 2017, at least 19 people remained on death row after being convicted under Pakistan’s blasphemy law and hundreds awaited trial. Most of those facing blasphemy are members of religious minorities, often victimized by these charges due to personal disputes. The government continued to actively encourage legal and procedural discrimination against members of the Christians and Ahmadi religious community by failing to repeal discriminatory laws. Most recently, a week before Christmas celebrations two suicide bombers attacked a Church packed with worshipers on Sunday in Quetta, killing at least nine people and injuring at least 35 others, several critically.

 

Suspects accused have no hope

 

Earlier former parliamentarian raised question on unequal, unjust role of law by the judiciary and authorities. Pakistan Today reported, “Former MP, Sindh Assembly Saleem Khokhar has demanded the release of 40 suspects in the Youhanabad lynching incident in a letter addressed to the Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. Khokher said that just like the Faizabad agreement, where all the cases were dropped against the protesters, the Youhanabad suspects should be released as soon as possible.” “Just because we don’t have weapons and that we are a minority, the state won’t do an agreement with us,” he questioned? He demanded that the same law should be applied to the Tehrik-e-Labaik Ya Rasool Allah Chief Khadim Rizvi and his supporters. They were involved in killing a police officer and beating several others, while also harming the state property, why were they all released? Since I am writing this there is no response from the authorities yet and two of the suspects [Indaryas Ghulam & Usman Masih] of Youhanabad have died during their custody and third one on the row.

 

The Christian community is one of the most persecuted minorities in Pakistan with a sudden surge in riots, mob lynching, target killings and bomb blasts targeting their congregations and Churches in the recent decade. And there is no rule of law and freedom and manifestation of religion and expression. This is very unfortunate that this community either cannot produce any visionary leader to fight for their rights or there are many so called leaders and thus they remained voiceless since partition of the subcontinent. However, I feel that there is a bigger need to look inward to ensure the rights and freedom of religious minorities, especially Christians.

The Arm of Monetary Censorship

I was suspended from Google AdSense for not having enough original content. My blogs tend to be of an aggregate nature. So, aggregate commenting and/or sharing others’ content for a comment (especially on G+ communities and Facebook Groups), is not original enough? If the answer is no, I request a review. If the answer is yes, then the requirements are too stringent!

 

AdSense was not a real big revenue source, yet the small remuneration produced a good feeling. I found it interesting my AdSense account was suspended just a mere $4.00 from a payout.

 

At any rate, it would be a great sign if a couple of bucks (or Euros???) were kicked in every now and then to make up for the tiny lost feel-good pittance from AdSense.

 

You could toss in those couple of bucks at my PayPal button at SlantRight 2.0 or the NCCR blog readers can CLICK HERE or the Ubiquitous8Thoughts readers can go to SlantRight 2.0 or click HERE for a PayPal monetary appreciation for any of my thoughts you agree with.

 

The AdSense suspension gave me an idea about helping my lovely wife Diana with here coffee business. Diana has a healthy coffee for purchase website and the website shows you how to make your own money on a part time to full time basis. I even placed a healthy coffee banner at SlantRight 2.0 that will take you to Diana’s website to pique any curiosity about coffee that tastes great (I ad cream) with ingredients that can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight:

 

[Unfortunately the banner embed didn’t work on WordPress. Here is Diana’s website: http://dianahouk.valentus.com/corp/]

That’s the pitch. All thanks to an AdSense suspension for the lame of excuse of not enough original content. I suspect the actual reason for a suspension is more about disagreeing with the content I post than a concern of a lack of original content.

 

Essentially, this is a censorship effect through the purse.
