BO’s Blinding Islamophilia


Caution - BO-Hazard (as in BHO)

I’m probably not as much an erudite writer as I am one who writes within the scope of a sense frustration. Thus when I do run into an erudite writer as the Patriot Post’s Mark Alexander, I am quite happy to cross post their thoughts. In this post Alexander succinctly writes what I have been blogging for some time. Read, enjoy, but most of all, understand the message!

BO’s Blinding Islamophilia

The REAL National Security Threat

 

By Mark Alexander

Feb. 11, 2015

The Patriot Post

 

“There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.” –George Washington (1793)

 

Islamophile: One who is so enchanted by Islam as to be under the influence of its tenets.

 

In 2009, I noted that Barack Hussein Obama’s remarkably brief White House bio began with this fallacious assertion: “His story is the American story – values from the heartland, a middle-class upbringing in a strong family…” And you can make up the rest.

 

Amazingly, his [BIG Lie] (http://patriotpost.us/alexander/22209] bio page has not been altered since then.

 

So, in an effort to better understand who Obama really is, and where his religious alliances fall, let’s briefly review.

 

Barack was conceived to unwed parents, Ann Dunham and his Kenyan father, BHO senior, both atheists. They were later married and then divorced. When Obama was four, his mother remarried, this time to an Indonesian Muslim, Lolo Soetoro. In his 1995 memoir “Dreams from My Father,” Obama wrote that Soetoro subscribed to “a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths.”

 

At the age of 10, Obama returned to Hawaii to live with his grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, who might best be described as agnostic. There, he would fall under the spell of an avowed Marxist, Frank Marshall Davis.

 

As a young adult and budding “community organizer,” Obama was taken under wing by a radical black supremacist pastor, Jeremiah Wright, who married Barack and his wife, Michelle, baptized their children and stewarded BO’s “faith” for 20 years. For those two decades, Obama also developed close associations with many other leftist radicals, including Michael Pfleger, William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Khalid al-Mansour, Rashid Khalidi, Bob Creamer, Edward Said, Roberto Unger and others.

 

That is the real Barack Obama bio, and those are his “values from the heartland.” Further, while he self-identifies as “Christian” rather than Muslim, that claim may be as deceptive as his bio.

 

With that in mind, in this seventh year of Obama’s seemingly limitless foreign and domestic policy failures, despite the ominous and impending threats from resurgent al-Qa’ida terrorist networks, the Islamic State, and clear evidence that Islamist Jihadis are targeting the USA, Obama never mentioned al-Qa’ida or Islam in his 2015 SOTU address three weeks ago.

 

Nor did Obama mention Islam when referencing the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris in early January, except to insist again that Islam is the “Religion of Peace.”

 

British journalist Douglas Kear Murray, an expert on Islam, asserts that many Muslims today subscribe to “a creed of Islamic fascism – a malignant fundamentalism, woken from the dark ages to assault us here and now.” He notes, “The claim that Islam is a religion of peace is a nicety invented by Western politicians so as either not to offend their Muslim populations or simply lie to themselves that everything might yet turn out fine. In fact, since its beginning Islam has been pretty violent.”

 

More recently, Obama dismissed the subsequent slaughter of Jews in Paris as an act committed by “a bunch of violent vicious zealots who … randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli.” Obama’s spokesman Josh Earnest demonstrated a heroic display of verbal contortionism in endeavoring to explain Obama’s assertion that the attack was random. Those “violent vicious zealots” were Islamists, and there was nothing “random” about terrorists targeting a kosher Jewish deli.

 

Last week, Obama used a Christian forum, the National Prayer Breakfast, to sanctimoniously denigrate Christians. The theme for this year’s event was “Remembering the Armenian Genocide of 1915,” when more than a million Christians were murdered by Muslims. That notwithstanding, he claimed Christians and Muslims are equal partners in murder and mayhem:

 

“Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place – remember that the Crusades and the Inquisition committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.” He added, “Slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

 

Really? For the record, Obama has ordered drone strikes against Islamic targets that have killed more Muslims in six years than were killed during three centuries of the Spanish Inquisition. (Look it up!) And the Crusades were, arguably, undertaken in the name of “the church,” not Jesus Christ. As Islamic scholar and historian Bernard Lewis notes,

 

“The Crusades could more accurately be described as a limited, belated and, in the last analysis, ineffectual response to the jihad – a failed attempt to recover by a Christian holy war what had been lost to a Muslim holy war.”

 

Clearly, there is nothing in the Gospel of Jesus Christ that advocates or could even be loosely construed to advocate violence against non-Christians. However, there is plenty in the Quran and the Hadith (the teachings of Muhammad) advocating death to infidels. As Franklin Graham reminds us,

 

“Jesus taught peace, love and forgiveness. He came to give his life for the sins of mankind, not to take life.”

 

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, the child in Indian immigrants, rebutted Obama’s assertion, saying,

 

“It was nice of the President to give us a history lesson at the Prayer breakfast. Today, however, the issue right in front of his nose, in the here and now, is the terrorism of Radical Islam. … The Medieval Christian threat is under control, Mr. President. Please deal with the Radical Islamic threat today.”

 

As to Obama’s reference to slavery, the abolitionist movement to end chattel slavery in the United States 150 years ago was led by white and black Christian men and women, as was the movement to end segregation 50 years ago. Christians of yore were at the forefront of these sweeping changes, while Muslims today are at the forefront of murderous global Jihad.

 

This metastasizing Islamic threat advocates for a “master race,” much as did Adolf Hitler prior to World War II. However, rather than a world dominated by Aryans, Islamists seek a worldwide caliphate of Islamists, or “Jihadistan.” And on the subject of percentages, some have suggested that because only 10 percent of Muslims are extremists we need not worry. However, in 1940 only seven percent of Germans belonged to the National Socialist German Workers Party. How did that work out?

 

Notably, the 2014 Global Slavery Index reports that of the more than 29 million humans held today in captive slavery – defined as “the possession and control of a person in such a way as to significantly deprive that person of his or her individual liberty, with the intent of exploiting that person through their use, management, profit, transfer or disposal” – more than 18 million are being held in Islamic countries, primarily (and ironically) in Africa.

 

Indeed, ISIL has institutionalized slavery in the Middle East.

 

In an interview this week, Obama delusionally insisted that concern about [Islamic] terrorism is simply media-driven hype:

 

“If it bleeds it leads, right? … It’s all about ratings.”

 

When asked why Obama would posit such a ludicrous assertion, my favorite psychiatrist, Charles Krauthammer, said flatly,

 

“Because he believes it. … If he was just being cynical as a way to dismiss this because of the failure of his policies, that would be one thing. I think he believes this. … This is what is so terrifying about the man who is commander in chief of a country, essentially a civilization, under attack.”

 

Krauthammer added,

 

“For the last six years Obama has acted as if the biggest threat American security [in the Middle East] is the Israeli government.”

 

Curiously, at the National Prayer Breakfast, Obama asserted, “We are summoned to push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilistic ends.” Whose religion was he referencing?

 

Perhaps the answer is found in Obama’s many words of praise for Islam since 2009:

 

“I will stand with [Muslims] should the political winds shift in an ugly direction. … The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. … We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world – including in my own country. … As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam. … Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. … Islam has always been part of America. … We will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities. … These [Ramadan] rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings. … America and Islam … share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings. … America is not and will never be at war with Islam. … Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace. … So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. … In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education. … Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality. … That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear. … Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

 

So, why does Obama refuse to mention Islam in connection with worldwide Islamic Jihad that is at our doorstep?

 

I believe it is because he is, first and foremost, an Islamophile, and thus he has what is almost a pathological blindness to the threat posed by Jihad.

 

On the other hand, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former Defense Intelligence Agency director, has been very clear in his assessment of our enemy:

 

“You cannot defeat an enemy you do not admit exists. … There are many sincere people in our government who frankly are paralyzed by this complexity. … [They] accept a defensive posture, reasoning that passivity is less likely to provoke our enemies. … A strong defense is the best deterrent. … The dangers to the U.S. do not arise from the arrogance of American power, but from unpreparedness or an excessive unwillingness to fight when fighting is necessary. I think there is confusion about what it is that we are facing. It’s not just what has been defined as 40,000 fighters in the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, it’s also a large [radicalized segment of Muslims] who or threatening our very way of life. … We really don’t have an effective strategy that is coherent, that actually addresses the wider problem. … I think what the American public is looking for is … moral and intellectual courage and clarity, and not a sense of passivity and confusion.”

 

Flynn’s assessment follows that of the Director of National Intelligence, Lt. Gen. James Clapper, who, in testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said a year ago,

 

“Al-Qa’ida is morphing and franchising itself … in Yemen, Somalia, in North Africa, in Syria … and what’s going on there … is very, very worrisome. … Looking back over my more than half a century in intelligence, I have not experienced a time when we’ve been beset by more crises and threats around the globe.”

 

Even one of the Democratic Party’s most liberal members, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, insisted,

 

“The presence of terrorist groups including those formerly affiliated with al-Qa’ida and others, has spread over the past year. In fact terrorism is at an all-time high worldwide.”

 

And this week, Congress provided the Army an end-run around Obama’s classifying Nidal Hasan’s murderous attack at Fort Hood as “workplace violence.” Instead, it is now classified as an act of terrorism and Hasan’s victims will now receive Purple Hearts.

 

But Obama can’t bring himself to call it what it is.

 

In fact, he insisted this week that climate change is a far greater threat, but noted it’s “happening [on] such a broad scale and [is] such a complex system, it’s a hard story for the media to tell on a day-to-day basis.”

 

Fact is, bloody Islamist attacks are also “happening on a broad scale” and on a “day-to-day basis” – and are getting closer to home every day. The murder of American relief worker Kayla Mueller, as confirmed yesterday, is yet another example of the evil we are confronting.

 

So, let me script this one for Obama so at his next stump speech he gets it right:

 

“We are at war with radical Islamic terrorists. Violent global jihad poses an immense existential threat to the civilized world, particularly since Iran is, or already has, the capacity to hand its asymmetric surrogates a nuclear weapon.”

Obama Administration Disrespects War Hero


(Then) CPT Matt Golsteyn Silver Star from Lt. Gen. John F. Mulholland Jr

(Then) CPT Matt Golsteyn Silver Star from Lt. Gen. John F. Mulholland Jr

I am a member of a restricted Yahoo Group that goes by ccpga which I have not actually visited for some time. So I don’t exactly recall how the acronym was decided upon but it stands for Christian Conservative Councilors. The group is restricted primarily to keep the trolls out. Now as if you were interested, I said all this about the group because a member sent info on Army Green Beret Major Matt Golsteyn. When the Major was a Captain he engaged in acts of heroism that resulted in the Silver Star which was expected to be upgraded to the Distinguished Service Cross which is only surpassed in honor by the Medal of Honor.
 
I’ll let the Washington Free Beacon and Allen West give the specifics of why Major Golsteyn was a hero in 2010. The rendition is truly worth the read. Apparently heroism doesn’t matter much to the Obama Administration when the hero is critical of the President and the civilian leadership pols in the Defense Department of which the Department of the Army of course has a role when it comes to that Branch.
 
HERO Major Golsteyn who won his Silver Star as a Captain was stripped of that medal. Why? Because Major Golsteyn was critical of the military strategy used in Afghanistan. To be more specific Golsteyn was critical of the Rules of Engagement (ROE) used in Afghanistan. AND that criticism quoted in a book by a Marine whose name is Bing West. The book’s name is “The Wrong War”.
 
Here is a bit of an excerpt from a book review of “The Wrong War”:
 
 While his book focuses at the tactical level, West has the contacts and background to evaluate top-level decisions. As the title indicates, he has concluded that population-centric counterinsurgency will not work for this war. He then asks the very important question, “Since it would be disastrous to pull out and we can’t win with the current strategy, is there an alternative?”
 
West sets out to answer that question by describing “the fighting, the objectives, the interaction with the tribes, and the different tactics our military has undertaken.” To provide background, West takes the reader through a years-long summary of key efforts in both the north and south of Afghanistan. In doing so, he provides context over time that pointedly illustrates both the grit of our forces and the failure of the current approach. (The Wrong War written by Bing West; Review by Col Thomas X. Hammes, USMC (Ret); Marine Corps Association & Foundation)
 
I understand it is against the Military Code of Conduct to be critical of the civilian leadership, especially the Coward … err … I mean Commander-in-Chief. The author Bing West is an ex-Marine that has made a career at being an author. According to the review I read, West’s classic book is “The Village” in 1972. So I think it is a pretty good guess that West didn’t think his book would be used to castigate an active duty member of the Service.
 
Here is an excerpt from a Time Mag online article from 2010 showing the time frame that then Captain Golsteyn faced in a do or die similar situation:
 
… Marines see an attack taking shape around them, the current rules of engagement mandate that they cannot shoot unless they are first shot at. The insurgents know this, so they often “drop and go”: firing from a distance, then abandoning their weapons. Sometimes Marines never get a single shot off in defense, an exercise in restraint that is especially taxing for the American military’s hardiest warriors. “It’s hard as hell holding back when you know what’s coming every time,” says a lance corporal from Lima Company, Third Battalion, Sixth Marines. … (Will Petraeus Change the Rules for Shooting Back? By Jason Motlagh; Time; 7/7/10)
 
By 2013 the ROE only get worse:
 
The new U.S.-Afghanistan security agreement adds restrictions on already bureaucratic rules of engagement for American troops by making Afghan dwellings virtual safe havens for the enemy, combat veterans say.
 
The rules of engagement place the burden on U.S. air and ground troops to confirm with certainty that a Taliban fighter is armed before they can fire — even if they are 100 percent sure the target is the enemy. In some cases, aerial gunships have been denied permission to fire even though they reported that targets on the move were armed.
 
The proposed Bilateral Security Agreement announced Wednesday by Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Secretary of State John F. Kerry all but prohibits U.S. troops from entering dwellings during combat. …
 
“U.S. forces shall not enter Afghan homes for the purposes of military operations, except under extraordinary circumstances involving urgent risk to life and limb of U.S. nationals,” Mr. Obama pledged in a letter to the Afghan leader.

 
The rules of engagement today also place restrictions on dwelling assaults, but Mr. Obama’s language of “extraordinary circumstances involving urgent risk of life and limb” sets the bar much higher.

… (Rules of engagement limit the actions of U.S. troops and drones in Afghanistan; By Rowan Scarborough; Washington Times; 11/26/13)

 
The planned ROE for 2015:
 
 the recent New York Times article is that the original plan was to allow U.S. military forces in Afghanistan to attack al Qaeda targets (the counterterrorism mission) but not Taliban, Haqqani, or other non-al Qaeda targets (the combat mission?).
 
… the article suggests that U.S. forces will continue in 2015 to have authority to attack at least Taliban targets…though not based simply on positive identification of their membership status. Rather than status-based targeting, in other words, the contemplated rules of engagement will be threat-based. An unnamed senior official explains in the article:
 
“We will no longer target belligerents solely because they are members of the Taliban,” the official said. “To the extent that Taliban members directly threaten the United States and coalition forces in Afghanistan or provide direct support to Al Qaeda, however, we will take appropriate measures to keep Americans safe.”
 
 
This leaves the question whether status-based targeting will be an option for al Qaeda targets in Afghanistan. I’ve not seen it publicly stated that the military’s ROE in Afghanistan currently provides for status-based targeting, though I’m guessing that it does. Nothing in the article suggests that this would change in 2015, and indeed the emphasis on changing from status-based to some notion of threat-based targeting for Taliban fighters in 2015 implies that the rules will be otherwise (i.e., will remain status based) for al Qaeda.
 
 
AND SO Major Matt Golsteyn save lives but didn’t check to see if the Taliban was shooting at his Green Beret unit and some Marine engineers that were tasked to clear Taliban land mines. In 2011, the Free Beacon reports, that Major Golsteyn experienced the beginning of a military criminal investigation accused of “… an undisclosed violation of the military’s rules of engagement in combat for killing a known enemy fighter and bomb maker.
 
The accusation was baseless and unofficially based on Golsteyn’s criticism of the ROE that was quoted in the West book. So they stripped him of the well-deserved Silver Star.
 
In the process of researching this outrage I just found out more crap is proceeding from the influence of the Obama Administration:
 
Separations proceedings were initiated against Army Major Matt Golsteyn on the same day that Congressman Duncan Hunter (R., Calif.) published an article in the Daily Beast highlighting Golsteyn’s case, according to a letter obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
 
The letter, signed by Hunter and addressed to Secretary of the Army John McHugh, states the investigation into allegations of wrongdoing by Golsteyn began on November 29, 2011, and concluded on November 24, 2013, with no charges being pressed.
 
Hunter’s original article appeared on the the (sic) Daily Beast‘s website on Tuesday, February 3, 2015. The Army initiated proceedings to eject Golsteyn from the military the same day, the letter states.
 
The letter also raises questions about whether Golsteyn was offered appropriate due process in response to the decision to revoke his Silver Star made late last year, noting that, “denial of [Golsteyn’s] appeal appears not to have been reviewed by the appropriate authorityunderscored by the fact that Matt was notified of his record change via a system generated e-mail on January 8, 2015.” Hunter goes on to ask McHugh to confirm that the appeal was reviewed by the appropriate authority and was not influenced by McHugh’s office.
 
The letter also suggested that there had been “questionable actions” on the part of investigators during the course of the inquiry into Golsteyn, and offers to share information regarding those actions with McHugh’s office.
 
 
Hunter’s letter concludes by noting that “from the beginning, I have urged the Army to bring a case forward against Matt should the full scope of evidence point to a crime.”
 
However, instead of criminal charges, Golsteyn has faced exclusively administrative actions that offer little chance for self-defense, now including the initiation of proceedings to eject him from the Army after thirteen years of service.
 
 
Here’s a copy and pasted of Duncan’s letter to the Secretary of the Army John McHugh which I extracted from a PDF file linked from the Free Beacon with a Scribd link:
 
February 9, 2015
 
Honorable John McHugh Secretary of the Army 101 Army Pentagon
Washington, DC 20310
 
Dear Secretary McHugh:
 
The Army’s case against Major Mail Golsteyn continues to lack clarity and consistency. I am especially confused by your decision to revoke Matt’s valor awards without substantive justification—when Army officials have said that all decisions related to Matt now sit with his command following the conclusion of the investigation. Several individuals within the Army have indicated that decisions regarding Matt are being influenced from outside his command. I hope this is not the case.
 
Matt’s situation demands objectivity, which I fear has not been provided. Most recently, separation proceedings were initiated by Major General Richard Mustion, Human Resources Command, on February 3, 2015—the same morning I introduced Matt in a Daily Beast commentary indentifying (sic) failures in leadership. Such timing is unlikely a coincidence, given that the Army’s investigation started on November 29, 2011, and concluded on November 24, 2013.
 
In fact, you will recall that the Commander of Criminal Investigation Command was surprised to see Matt at Will Swenson’s Medal of Honor ceremony, stating that he thought Matt was no longer serving in the Army.  He too must have been confused by his own investigation.
 
That same investigation is what the Army is imposing on Matt’s command. Unfortunately, the investigation fails to thoroughly account for some information—including Matt’s relationship to Swenson and the Army’s conduct with both individuals. Questionable actions by investigating agents continued throughout the investigation—and I am willing, once again, to provide that information at your request.  Bottom line: I have serious concerns that the investigation into Matt was neither fair nor objective, yet the command is being asked to make judgments, reportedly under influence from Army leadership, on that same investigation.
 
Moreover, when you revoked Matt’s valor awards under your authority, it was stated that Matt is entitled to an appeal, and that the appeal would not bear the Army’s mark in any manner. Though denial of the appeal appears not have been reviewed by the proper authority— underscored by the fact that Matt was notified of his record change via a system generated email on January 8, 2015.  As such, I ask for confirmation that the appeal was reviewed by the proper authority—and not influenced by your office.  I would also like to make an official request for a detailed timeline of communications between your office and HRC related to the valor awards you personally revoked. This includes any communications pertaining to Matt’s appeal.
 
Mr. Secretary, from the beginning, I have urged the Army to bring a case forward against Matt should the full scope of evidence point to a crime. It’s been over three years since the Army started its investigation and a high-level operator has been sidelined as a result. Still, Man has yet to be charged with a crime or convicted of any wrongdoing.  Yet the Army is going to great lengths to administratively punish him.
 
You are probably aware that I have made several requests to discuss the latest developments in Man’s case. I hope you will reconsider
 
Sincerely
 
Duncan Hunter
Member of Congress
 
As Representative Hunter wrote in his letter, Major Matt Golsteyn was NEVER charged or tried in Military Court. Hence mustering out is a top down order probably politically inspired by vindictiveness associated with public criticism shared in a book. A CHARGE NEVER BROUGHT AGAINST Major Golsteyn!
 
It is my opinion that Golsteyn is a victim of the Obama purge (See HERE Military Purge BHO version Mission Accomplishedand HERE) of anyone in the military that has a contrary opinion on President Barack Hussein Obama’s policy on winning or I should say – LOSING – a war that was started by Islamic terrorists who were protected by a strict Sharia ruled Taliban-Afghan government. President Bush was correct when he let Americans know we are at war with Islamic fascists. In the latter days of his Presidency massive criticism against the war in Iraq saw President Bush walk-back his thoughts on Islam.
 
 
We’ve gone from a Bush walk-back to an Obama nearly promoting Islamic fascism with lies about his connections to a Muslim past, association with Jeremiah Wright’s buddy Louis Farrakhan (See also HERE), supporting al Qaeda terrorists in Libya and then trying to send deposed Qaddafi’s armaments to other pro-al-Qaeda terrorists to Jabhat al-Nusra which probably made its way to the of ISIS (or ISIL or IS or DAESH and etc.). Then obscuring those arms deals and eventual Benghazi debacle during the 2012 election by blaming a poorly made movie trailer about Mohammed that was basically accurate but with crude acting. Then Obama supported Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood winning its election and criticized Egypt’s generals for giving the Muslim Brotherhood the boot. Not to mention all the secret meetings with Muslim Brotherhood operatives (See HERE and HERE) and the Iranian government securing a deal that allows Iranian nuke-armed missiles. O yes, did I mention the good President has been cozy with Muslim Brotherhood operative Malik Obama – the President’s brother. I am sure some of my readers could list even more BHO coziness to Islam while maligning Christianity and Christian values.
 
I don’t know the constitutional situation for this thought. If Major Matt Golsteyn is indeed drummed out of the Army due to criticism made public in a book that the Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan are bogus AND a recipe for defeat. Then the current Republican Congress should take steps to overrule the Secretary of the Army and just go ahead and award the Constitutional Medal of Honor to Matt Golsteyn.

Afghanistan War Hero Stripped of Silver Star
Feature: Army Major Matt Golsteyn betrayed by cowardly leaders
 
February 6, 2015 5:00 am
 
By February 20th, 2010, the Battle of Marjah had been underway for a week. In order to seize the Afghan district—an IED-infested, Taliban-dominated collection of villages and crisscrossing canals and tree lines that were a defending fighter’s dream—the U.S. military had divided its force into thirds. A task force of more than a thousand U.S. Marines, accompanied by Afghan soldiers, assaulted the northern portion of Marjah. Ditto for the central portion of the district.
 
And the southern third? It had been attacked by a single U.S. Army Special Forces team consisting of nine men, accompanied by a handful of Marine engineers tasked with clearing bombs from the roads and a few hundred Afghan troops that were more of a babysitting case than true partners. Such a light American footprint on at least part of the battlefield would “put an Afghan face” on the operation, as the lingo went at the time.
 
As the Special Forces soldiers wore Afghan Army uniforms, the Taliban concluded that there were virtually no Americans on their southern flank. The fighting there was intense.
 
Having secured a defensive position in the heart of the Balakino Bazaar (picture the Bakara market in the film Black Hawk Down, but more impoverished) the Special Forces team, led by a captain named Matt Golsteyn, repeatedly attempted to expand their footprint, but regularly met fierce resistance. On the 20th, one of the team’s assaults into Taliban territory took a turn for the worse. An Afghan soldier was wounded and a vehicle got stuck in the mud as insurgents raked the coalition formation with gunfire.
 
Under heavy fire, Golsteyn, as Dan Lamothe of the Washington Post summarized this week, “ran about 150 meters to the trapped MRAP to retrieve a powerful 84mm Carl Gustav recoilless rifle, an anti-tank weapon. While moving under gunfire, he coordinated a medical evacuation for the wounded Afghan soldier and then opened fire with the Carl Gustav.”
 
Running through the open despite the fact that the Taliban had successfully pinned down the rest of his men, Golsteyn looked like he “was alone fighting 30 enemy fighters out in the poppy fields.” He then coordinated airstrikes from F/A-18 Hornets and a drone, silencing the enemy. The battle lasted four hours.
 
For his actions, Golsteyn was awarded the Silver Star, and was told that the medal would likely be upgraded to the Distinguished Service Cross (the Army’s equivalent of the Navy Cross, and second only to the Medal of Honor) after review by the Secretary of the Army. I can confirm that this was true because I was present at the ceremony where Golsteyn received his Silver Star, and personally overheard Lieutenant General John Mulholland, then the commander of the Army’s Special Operation’s Command, say that an upgrade was under consideration.
 
In fact, I know Golsteyn—now a major—well. I served alongside him in Marjah for months (though not on the 20th of February—I was among the thousands of Marines fighting elsewhere in the district that day) and can attest that he is one of the most courageous, dedicated, and honorable officers I encountered during my service in the military. He would give his life for the men he led without a moment’s thought—and he very nearly did, on several occasions. When we returned from our deployments and honors began to roll in for Golsteyn, I reflected that it is nice to see the good guys get recognized.
 
It didn’t last long. In 2011, shortly after a book by author and Marine Bing West came out that detailed Golsteyn’s heroism and quoted him making critical remarks about the American strategy in Afghanistan, I learned that the Army had launched a criminal investigation into his actions during the battle. (Again, full disclosure: I was also interviewed for that book, The Wrong War, and make a brief appearance in it.)
 
The investigation, apparently, had nothing to do with the acts of bravery that earned Golsteyn his medal. Instead, according to the Washington Post, which cited officials familiar with the case, it concerned “an undisclosed violation of the military’s rules of engagement in combat for killing a known enemy fighter and bomb maker.” The investigation stretched on for nearly two years, during which time the Army effectively put Golsteyn’s career on ice. In 2014, Golsteyn and his lawyer were informed that the investigation was finally complete. No charges were filed, but Golsteyn still wasn’t released from administrative limbo.
 
Alerted about the controversy by another Army officer, Captain Will Swenson, Congressman Duncan Hunter wrote last year to John McHugh, the secretary of the Army, asking about the status of Golsteyn’s seemingly endless career freeze. Apparently the secretary did not take kindly to the inquiry, as he responded in a letter last November that not only would he not be upgrading Golsteyn’s Silver Star to a Distinguished Service Cross, but would be revoking Golsteyn’s Silver Star entirely, a fact that Hunter revealed publicly in an article for the Daily Beast published on Tuesday.
 
The revocation of an award such as the Silver Star is extraordinarily rare, and typically would happen in the case of the recipient being convicted of a serious crime that in some way dishonored his service. But not only has Golsteyn not been convicted of a crime—he hasn’t even been charged with one.
 
McHugh would not reveal to Hunter specifically why he was taking his action beyond submitting the innuendo that he was privy to “derogatory information” regarding Golsteyn’s record. What could this information be? Who knows? Having, according to Hunter, spent years threatening Golsteyn’s men, searching for and failing “to find one piece of evidence to corroborate the allegation” that launched the investigation, the Army clearly decided to punish Golsteyn anyway, through publicly dishonoring him in a manner that allows him effectively no recourse or due process.
 
Such institutional cravenness is even more extraordinary when one considers the circumstances of Golsteyn’s service. Commissioned in 2002 out of West Point, he has served combat tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and was already the recipient of valor awards by the time he fought in Marjah. There, he and his handful of American soldiers succeeded in securing a big chunk of one of the deadliest places on earth at the time, under constant and intense opposition from the Taliban. Working with the local tribes, Golsteyn came to be recognized as one of the most successful officers in Helmand Province. The Taliban tried to kill him and his men again and again, and found themselves driven back every time. What success there was in Marjah was in no small part due to him.
 
Such is the quality of American military leadership that generals and political appointees like McHugh will send courageous soldiers like Golsteyn into incredibly difficult (some would suggest impossible) circumstances, then invest years in second-guessing their actions after the fact—and then, finding no evidence of wrongdoing, still publicly dishonor the man without giving him a chance to defend himself. Never mind the fact that if a Taliban bombmaker did in fact die in a violation of the rules of engagement, then in what topsy-turvy universe is that a bad thing? The veterans who had to risk their lives because of these ROEs have almost universally criticized them. Established and enforced by men sitting safely in Kabul and Washington who never shared the daily risks of Golsteyn and his soldiers, the rules were wrong and self-serving to begin with, a politicized effort that has, without question, caused the needless deaths of many young Americans.
 
In any event, if the Army truly does believe that Golsteyn violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice, then they should charge him with a crime. If they can’t do that, then we must conclude that insufficient evidence of a crime exists, in which case Secretary McHugh should give him the Distinguished Service Cross he deserves.
 
Congressman Hunter pointed out in his article that a recent survey conducted by the Military Times revealed only 27 percent of the military felt that their leaders were looking out for the best interests of the troops. Golsteyn’s situation illustrates why this is the case, and is of a piece with the case of Will Swenson, whose Medal of Honor package was “lost” after he bitterly criticized his chain of command over the ROEs, or of Jim Gant, one of the most successful special operators of the last decade, who was nonetheless drummed out of the Army after running afoul of his superiors.
 
Golsteyn, Swenson, Gant, and others like them are led by men who interrupt their political intrigues and email flirtations with wealthy socialites only to crucify the troops actually doing the fighting when, for whatever reason, they become politically inconvenient—preferably, as with Golsteyn, in a manner that allows for no response or appeal.
 
Most Americans would take one look at Golsteyn’s record of service and call him a hero. The men who will not share Golsteyn’s risks, but who will hurl innuendoes at him after the fact and publicly dishonor him in a manner that allows him to mount no case on his own behalf? There’s a word for them too: cowards.

Army revokes Green Beret’s Silver Star for killing known enemy and bomb-maker
 
February 7, 2015
 
 
Just when I think the news cannot possibly get any worse and it’s gonna be hard for me to find something to talk about – we hit a new low. The U.S. Army is hiding a deserter — Bowe Bergdahl. We have Army Lieutenant Clint Lorance in prison for killing the enemy. And my Army finds a way to go even lower.
 
As reported by the Washington Post, “CPT. Mathew L. Golsteyn was leading a Special Forces team in Afghanistan in 2010 when an 80-man mission he assembled to hunt insurgent snipers went awry. One of the unit’s five vehicles sank in mud, a gunshot incapacitated an Afghan soldier fighting alongside the Americans, and insurgents maneuvered on them to rake the soggy fields with machine-gun fire.”
 
“Golsteyn, already a decorated Green Beret officer, responded with calm resolve and braved enemy fire repeatedly that day, according to an Army summary of his actions. He received the Silver Star for valor for his actions during a 2011 ceremony at Fort Bragg, N.C. Top Army officials later approved him for an upgrade to the prestigious Distinguished Service Cross, second only to the Medal of Honor in recognizing combat heroism by U.S. soldiers.”
 
But here’s the kicker.
 
The Post says the officer, a former member of the 3rd Special Forces Group and graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., was later investigated for an undisclosed violation of the military’s rules of engagement in combat for killing a known enemy fighter and bomb maker, according to officials familiar with the case.”
 
The investigation closed last year without Golsteyn’s being charged with a crime, but Army Secretary John M. McHugh decided not only to deny Golsteyn the Distinguished Service Cross, but also to revoke his Silver Star. McHugh cited a provision in Army regulations that if facts become known that would have prevented the awarding of a medal, the award can be revoked.”
 
Ok, here we go again. How does one “violate the rules of engagement in combat by killing a known enemy fighter and bomb maker?” What does Secretary of the Army McHugh recommend — sharing MRE recipes?
 
Now, unless Major Golsteyn killed this enemy fighter by dismembering his body while alive, I truly don’t give a doggone. Remember the Combat Restraint Medal that was once considered? Well, thankfully it was defeated by those combat veterans who made their voices heard. But what kind of Army do we have now when we revoke medals for heroic actions because the same fella killed an enemy fighter! Doggone Secretary McHugh, that is what happens in COMBAT! And this is what happens when we’ve turned these positions into nothing but political appointments.
 
I’m beginning to believe we should just eliminate the Military Service Secretariats — Army, Navy, Air Force. We should just keep the Secretary of Defense organization. Think about the cost savings in the defense budget.
 
But back to the story at hand, “The decision is still shrouded in mystery because of the secretive nature of the Army’s investigation into Golsteyn, who did extensive work with U.S. Marines in and around Marja in Helmand province. A spokesman for McHugh’s office, Lt. Col. Chris Kasker, declined to comment Wednesday, citing the administrative nature of the decision. But he released details of Golsteyn’s service record that show he no longer has a Silver Star and is not in Special Forces anymore. The major earned a Bronze Star and Army Commendation medal with “V” devices for heroism in earlier actions, Kasker said.”
 
“Golsteyn joined the Army in 2002. “The Army has been unable to present substantive evidence while an overwhelming number of first-person accounts provided to Army investigators uphold Matt’s record as a top-level operator,” said Hunter’s letter, which the congressman’s office released to The Post.”
 
I am still looking for something specific as to what Major Golsteyn did to violate ROE in killing the enemy. How is it that a decision can be made to revoke awards for the action for which he earned them? If there was an issue with Golsteyn, you don’t revoke something he’s earned, you suspend any positive actions for the Soldier. And it seems that there is nothing substantiated from the Army’s investigation, so why didn’t they reinstate his awards — and upgrade?
 
This is the Army — the America — in which we are now living.
 
But I wonder if Golsteyn’s critique of the Afghanistan mission in the past has anything to do with this kerfluffle. The Post says, “In the 2011 Bing West book “The Wrong War: Grit, Strategy and the Way Out of Afghanistan,” he is quoted as saying that the Americans were considered insurgents in Afghanistan who were “selling a poor product called the Kabul government.” West later wrote in a review of a book about another Special Forces soldier, Maj. Jim Gant, that the careers of Gant, Golsteyn and a third Green Beret, Dan McKone, were “terminated,” assessing that the Army failed them.”
 
A deserter named Bowe Bergdahl may walk with $300,000 in back pay. A Special Forces Green Beret officer who faced the enemy and killed them gets his awards for heroism revoked. So let me end this asking a simple question.
 
Secretary McHugh, whose side are you on?
 
And by the way, if you’d like a dose of heroism, here is the full account of what then CPT Golsteyn did:
 
Golsteyn’s Silver Star came for actions on Feb. 20, 2010. He assembled his unit after his base had come under sniper fire from an insurgent wielding a Dragunov rifle, according to an Army narrative of his actions. He directed his troops to launch an assault across 700 meters of open fields, but an armored truck known as a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle sank into mud under gunfire after about 175 meters. Under heavy machine-gun and sniper fire, Golsteyn ran about 150 meters to the trapped MRAP to retrieve a powerful 84mm Carl Gustav recoilless rifle, an anti-tank weapon. While moving under gunfire, he coordinated a medical evacuation for the wounded Afghan soldier and then opened fire with the Carl Gustav, said the Army narrative, which was obtained by The Post. Captain Golsteyn was alone running in the open through enemy gun fire that had over 80 men pinned down, and from the crow’s nest on top of [Forward Operating Base] McQueary, it looked like Captain Golsteyn was alone fighting 30 enemy fighters out in the poppy fields,” the award narrative said. Enemy reinforcements continued to arrive on the battlefield, so Golsteyn organized airstrikes by both F/A-18 Hornet fighter jets and a Predator drone. No American or coalition troops were killed in the battle despite a barrage of enemy fire that lasted four hours, the narrative said.”

Iran and Nuclear Terrorism


BHO Iran Nuke Appeasement

Justin Smith highlights what the Mainstream Media has again failed to notify Americans of adequately. Iran is nuclear and is a heartbeat away from arming nuke missiles. The Appeaser-in-Chief does nothing but talk platitudes out the side of his used car salesman mouth.

Iran and Nuclear Terrorism

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 2/6/2015 5:43 PM

 

Feckless negotiating with Iran over the past decade, especially these past two years, have burned an image of a miserable Chamberlain-style failure in the minds of the American people, as President Obama and Secretary Kerry have allowed the greatest threat in the 21st century to become our reality. For all intents and practical purposes, Iran is now essentially a nuclear armed missile state, and rather than pursue more negotiations, the at risk nations, such as the United States, Britain, Germany, France and much of Europe and Israel, must seriously consider a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, before its weaponry can be perfected and mass produced. And even then, small nukes handed to Iran’s proxies, Hamas and Hezbollah, will remain a threat, as long as the Ayatollahs hold their iron grip on Iran.

 

All the political analysts have been speaking in terms of “if” Iran achieves a nuclear weapons program, when all the evidence suggests that Iran already has one. Long held Shahab-4 missiles with a 2500 mile range and the February 2, 2009 orbit of the Safir-2 Omid – “Hope” exhibits that Iran has an intercontinental delivery system. Iran also has received an A.Q. Khan warhead design from North Korea, as well as a Chinese warhead design, and it has a currently undetermined amount of near weapons grade uranium, due to its maintenance of a number of secret facilities.

 

Iran has acknowledged the existence of 19,000 centrifuges, with 9,000 currently operating. These 9,000 centrifuges can produce enough weapons grade plutonium to produce approximately three nuclear missiles in a year. If Iran reduces this number to 7,000 and keeps much of its uranium enriching technology, as John Kerry and others have suggested, experts warn that any reduction in centrifuge efficiency is reversible more quickly than a straight decrease in the number of centrifuges.

 

While Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani claimed in his February 4th speech that Iran “neither covets nor aspires to acquire nuclear weapons”, there remain many within the Ayatollah hierarchy who would refute this. Rouhani’s opposition states fairly correctly that Sipah-e-Sahaba, an intensely anti-Shiite Islamofascist group, has close ties to Pakistan’s military and intelligence establishment, which stokes Iranian fears of a nuclear first strike by Pakistan. They are also concerned that Riyadh has invested heavily in the Pakistan nuclear program and can get a nuclear weapon at will, which plays a large part in Iran’s nuclear quest.

 

And, as an unrepentant sponsor of terrorism for thirty-five years, Tehran has made no secret of its desire to wipe Israel – “Little Satan” and America “Big Satan” – off the face of the earth, while it has systemized terror as a primary mechanism for accomplishing it goals and exporting its worldview and Islamist ideology. In this context, despite any security issues Iran may have with Sunni nations like Saudi Arabia, the United States must not allow Iran to build an arsenal of nuclear weapons, under any circumstances.

 

Over the past year the world has seen Iran use its Quds Force and Revolutionary Guard in Iraq and Hezbollah in Syria. We witnessed Iran trade arms and munitions for black-market oil with the Islamic State. And then, Iran threatened to send millions of jihadists to Gaza to fight in the “struggle” against Israel. The news from Iran is never good.

 

Since Iran already views itself as advancing the Islamic hegemon in the region, just think of the influence Iran will exert throughout the entire Middle East, once it is prepared to fully unveil its real nuclear capabilities. It is already exerting great influence through its finances and military, and in the aftermath of the Iranian backed Shiite Houthis taking control of Sana’a, Yemen, the Arabic media now refers to Beirut, Damascus, Baghdad and Sana’a as “the four capitals of Iran”, which Iranian media calls a “victory for the [Islamic] revolution.”

 

Does anyone believe that the Ayatollahs will not find a way to detonate a nuclear weapon in New York or Chicago, especially with the U.S’s current porous border situation? – Or Tel Aviv?

 

Although Iran has previously launched several satellites on a south to north trajectory, in an attempt to elude U.S. Ballistic Early Warning Radar, Iran will seek “plausible deniability”. As I wrote on November 30, 2013:

 

“Utilizing numerous deceptions, such as tramp steamers off the U.S. and European coasts or physically crossing porous borders, it would not be too difficult for Iran to target 29 critical sites in America and the West, identified numerous times by successive Iranian presidents.” [Bold text added by Editor]

 

 

As Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) spoke with Greta Van Susteren (Fox News) on January 27th, he observed:

“If we continue on the path we are with the Iranians, they’ll wind up with a nuclear capability … and one day have a [nuclear] bomb. He’s about to make the biggest mistake of this presidency.”

 

While Obama has previously stated that a nuclear armed Iran represents a “profound” national security threat to the U.S., his Chamberlain-style appeasement tactics have greatly alarmed opponents of Iran’s nuclear program, especially considering that Olli Heinonen, former IAEA Deputy Director General, warned (Jan. 20, 2014) that Iran could build a nuclear weapon within two to three weeks. They see Iran on the cusp of a rapid nuclear break-out, while Obama gives Iran more time to stockpile more uranium, time that the world can ill-afford to give a rogue regime with so much blood on its hands.

 

With Iran’s Ayatollahs stalling for time and possibly stockpiling an untold number of nuclear warheads (scores?) and Obama and Kerry legitimizing major pieces of Iran’s nuclear program, this U.S. administration and world leaders are failing at a critical juncture of history that demands decisive action, not an unacceptable bad deal that leaves nuclear capabilities in Iran’s hands. Decisive action is needed to stop a defiant Iran, protect U.S. interests and halt a rising Islamic dawn and an era of nuclear terrorism.

Obama meets the American Muslim Brotherhood but keeps the press away!


Rise of MB with Obama Imprint

Paul Sutliff reports on recent meetings with the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). Both the MB central in Egypt and MB acolytes pretending to be Moderate peaceful Muslims in the USA. These meeting with the State Department and the big dog himself – President Barack Hussein Obama. Sutliff points out that items talked about are secret or at the very least with the nefarious appearance of clandestine high-level talks between the MB (and U.S. acolytes) and the POTUS.

Obama meets the American Muslim Brotherhood but keeps the press away!

President Obama’s continual servitude to Islamists has never been more apparent than it is this week. This week alone, the president’s Press Secretary refused to call the Taliban terrorists and when asked for a stand on Jordan’s response to the execution of one of their own by the Islamic State, referred to the group as ISIL, a term created by the president. But that is not all that happened this week. The State Department invited Muslim Brotherhood leaders here, who have been declared terrorists by other countries to meet and talk. The White House lied about who paid to bring the terrorist representatives to the United States and who arranged it by originally claiming Georgetown University was involved.

 

Egypt has responded through their Ambassador in Washington DC. As have other countries who have named the ikhwan (the Muslim Brotherhood) terrorists. Today the President of the United States is meeting with the American leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood under the guise of calling the Muslim leaders of America.

 

Who is there and how they were selected to be present is under lock and key because the Press have been told to keep out. What kind of message does the President send when he meets with members of a group declared to be terrorists by ally nations and insists no one be there to record it?

 

Is this a secret planning session with Muslim Brotherhood?

 

Will affiliates in MPAC (the Muslim Public Affairs Council) like Haris Tarin a person who has already logged 72 meetings at the White House? His last meeting at the White House was this past Friday! He has met personally with the President, meeting him in the Rose Garden, the East Room, the South Lawn the Roosevelt Room and, the State Floor.

 

Will Jamal Barzinji, a leader of the International Institute of Islamic thought (IIIT) be present? A man reputed to be a Masul of the Muslim Brotherhood in America according to P. David Gaubatz, who has military intelligence in his background.

 

What about the ever present daughter of Yacob Mirza of IIIT, Asma Mirza? She became a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood front group ISNA (Islamic Society of North America). Her name appears over 900 times on the White House Visitor Logs! Asma has held a position with ISNA similar to what we call a member of the Board of Directors since she was 26.

 

Is there any way we cannot question if the president now takes the Islamist side and stands with them against America?

Save Western Civ. With Total Unconditional Victory


John R. Houk
© February 6, 2015
 
Allied Destruction of Nazi Germany’s city of Dresden during WWII is an example of winning a war at all costs. Think WWIII and what it takes to end Islamic aggression.
 
 
Dajjal has some harsh insights pertaining to Ari Bussel’s essay, “Farewell to Netanyahu”. Dajjal makes it very clear that his solution to the world’s Islam problem is the extermination on all who call on Mohammed’s Allah.
 
There is an essence of logic to the eradication solution because of Islam’s revered writings that inherently call for eradication of all non-Muslims who do not submit to Islam. No matter what a Muslim tells you, it is the truth what their writings encourage. For Muslims who tell you differently they are lying, self-deceived and/or ignorant of the totality of their own writings.
 
I on the other hand refuse to call for the eradication solution. The primary reason is that I am a Christian. The Lord Jesus’ exhortation to all Believers is to go into all the world share the Good News that the Deliverance of Jesus Christ is available now to all who Believe on the Risen Savior. No matter how angry I may get at crazy Muslims, I trust the Lord Jesus will return at the darkest hour of Christianity.
 
That being said I fully concur with Dajjal that the Western World needs to wake up to the ultimate designs of Islam as currently advocated by Muslims who know their writings and choose to follow them to the dotted “i” and the crossed “t”. Please notice that the Muslims who claim to be peaceful Moderates fear to take on those the West calls Radicals.
 
I for one do not believe that the fear the so-called peaceful Moderate Muslims have is for the retribution of Radicals. Rather I believe – at least unconsciously for many – that their fear is related to the retribution from Allah for not obeying that deity’s commands particularly in the Quran in making the world submit to Allah and Islam. To speak or act against Allah’s commands is blasphemy. AND in case you not paid attention, Muslims have little tolerance for blasphemy against their deity, their prophet and their religion in general. The intolerance is especially visible in the Muslim controlled world, but the intolerance is beginning to be boldly demonstrated in the non-Muslim West. This is especially the case in Europe. (If Obama’s way stays on track – then coming soon to an American community near you.)
 
Because of this Muslim revered writings loyalty and the inevitable devotion of all Muslims, the West under the leadership of the USA MUST develop a military strategy that has a total and complete and unconditional surrender of Muslim nations to the political authority of the West. By the way, the total victory strategy is how the united front of Allies prosecuted and won WWII. Wholesale German and Japanese population centers were bombed out of existence and their military leadership concluded genocide was the only result of not meeting the Unconditional Surrender demands by the most powerful military Allies of WWII – USA, Britain and the then USSR.
 
Islamic terrorism will only cease under the total victory strategy.
 
Below is video footage of the aftermath of the bombing of Dresden. I am fairly certain portions are from Nazi clips showing the German populace the Allies are barbarous YET forgetting to tell the German populace their Nazi government exterminated about 6 MILLION Jews not to mention about another 6 MILLION undesirable people to the Nazi Aryan race superiority agenda. NOW think that compare the Nazi atrocities to the approximate 270 million killed by jihad in the conquest spreading of Islam. These Muslim perpetrated atrocities are continuing to this day! When Christian kings killed for Christ contrary to the Holy Scriptures, those number don’t even come close to Islamic butchery that occurred at the command of the Quran and the example of Mohammed.
 
 
This is where the eradication of all Muslim conceptualists will point out that total victory only slows down the intent of Islamic Political Theopolitical Ideology. Devotion to Islamic revered writings simply means the Islamic cancer will rise again to afflict the non-Muslim world.
 
This is why total victory must lead to total political authority even if political despotism is used harshly in unWestern-like ways. In the case of Islam a little forced reformation is in order to change Mo’s ideology into something closer resembling a Judeo-Christian heritage.
 
Now that I have added a little clarity to my thoughts on Islam (trust me, I could on), check out Dajjal’s thoughts that Israel needs an even more aggressive Prime Minister than Netanyahu in securing the Jewish State from the Islamic threat.

Dajjal Comment to ‘Farewell to Netanyahu
 
Israel’s politics are too finely divided with too many parties wrestling for too few seats of power. The Parliamentary system does not lend itself to strong, decisive leadership and stability.
 
Yes, we do need a foreign leader to wise us up about Iran ‘cuz we have no domestic leader able and willing to meet the need. If we had a leader in ’01, Iran would be a smoking ash heap, not a problem today.
 
The Iran problem has only one possible solution: extinction. Iran must be erased. The existence of a nation ruled by twelvers is not acceptable.
 
Unfortunately, Bibi lacks the SISU requisite to deliver that message. He will pull his punches, falling short of the goal. Congress will stand up and cheer, without passing meaningful sanctions legislation, which Obamination would veto.

Israel will be forced to take out Iran’s nuclear industry and needs to remove the leadership circle at the same time.
 
Bennett has no chance in the current election cycle and there is a chance that Obamination’s meddling will save Bibi’s bacon this time. That chance could be strengthened if Bibi campaigns on the issue.
 
Israel needs a bold leader with courage and SISU, one who will name the enemy and the enemy threat doctrine. Muslims are the enemy and Islam is the threat doctrine. Any and all who think that peace is possible while Muslims live within rocket range of Israel are damned fools, so stupid that they should be institutionalized, not walking about loose. What part of 7.167, 9.29. 9.123 & Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177 do they not comprehend???
 
No concession, negotiation, good will gesture or cessation of territory will stop Muslims from their quest for genocide & politicide, they will only whet the Muslims’s appetite for blood.
 
It’s Islam, Stupid! Bibi, step up to the plate and come out swinging: name the enemy and tell the world why peace is impossible while that enemy exists. In case you are unaware:
 
13:41. See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allâh judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.
 
[Blog Editor: I wasn’t certain of the English translation used by Dajjal so I looked it up. I suspect Dajjal used the version he believes is the closest to the original Arabic intent. So here are some comparative English translations of Quran 13:41 in case you are as curious as I:
 
Yusuf Ali: See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? (Where) God commands, there is none to put back His Command: and He is swift in calling to account.
 
Pickthal: See they not how we aim to the land, reducing it of its outlying parts? (When) Allah doometh there is none that can postpone His doom, and He is swift at reckoning.
 
Shakir: Do they not see that We are bringing destruction upon the land by curtailing it of its sides? And Allah pronounces a doom — there is no repeller of His decree, and He is swift to take account.
 
Sher Ali: Do they not see that WE are visiting the land, reducing it from its outlying boarders? And ALLAH judges; there is none to reverse HIS judgment. And HE is Swift at reckoning.
 
Khalifa: Do they not see that every day on earth, brings them closer to the end, and that GOD decides their life span, irrevocably? He is the most efficient Reckoner.
 
Palmer: Did they not see that we come to the land and diminish the borders thereof? God judges, and there is none to reverse His judgment, and He is swift at reckoning up!
 
Sale: Do they not see that we come into [their] land, and straiten the borders thereof, [by the conquests of the true believers]? When God judgeth, there is none to reverse his judgement; and he [will be] swift in taking an account.
 
Rodwell: See they not that we come into their land and cut short its borders? God pronounceth a doom, and there is none to reverse his doom. And swift is He to take account.
 
“Progressive Muslims”: Do they not see that We come to the land and reduce it from its ends? And God gives judgment and there is none to override His judgment. And He is quick to reckoning.
 
Transliteration: Awa lam yaraw anna na/tee al-arda nanqusuha min atrafiha waAllahu yahkumu la muAAaqqiba lihukmihi wahuwa sareeAAu alhisabi
 
Qur’an Text/Transliteration 13:41 (From: Qur’an Predicted Land Decreasing; WikiIslam; This page was last modified 03:23, 16 February 2014 by WikiIslam user Sahab.)]
 
What does Allah give the Muslims? How does he give it to them? Is the gift reversible? What did Israel do in ’48? What does that tell us about Allah? How can you expect Muslims to tolerate it???
 
In 638, Umar completed the Islamic conquest of the Levant. “None to put back his Judgment” means that the conquest is permanent. Israel’s recovery of stolen land in ’48 & ’67 proves Allah to be an impotent idol.
 
Israel won four out of four wars after Allah promised the Muslims victory. Get a clue. Tell the Muslims to go to Hell. Punch their tickets. Make peace by obtaining victory: Islamic extinction.

Evidence Surfaces That Chris Kyle’s Killer Was Not Suffering From PTSD But May Have Been A Terrorist Sympathizer


Eddie Ray Routh - arrest mug shot 2-3-13Eddie Ray Routh 1-25-15 in court

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eddie Ray Routh 2/3/13 – Left and 1/25/15 – Right

 

Eddie Ray Routh murdered Chris Kyle of American Sniper fame and Chad Littlefield. The original story that is being reported by the Mainstream Media (MSM) is that Routh had a PTSD break and shot them to death.

 

With this original understanding, on a personal level I was willing to give Routh a pass with some serious time under psychiatric care in a place designed to help PTSD victims who have made others victims via crimes.

 

However there has been some suspicion of late that Routh’s murder crimes could be more related to Islamic conversion than Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

 

That which brought the suspicions to the surface was the lack of actual combat duty by then Marine Eddie Ray Routh while stationed in Iraq during 2007. Apparently Routh had a non-combat role in the Marines. The closest he came to potential threatening situations was in guard duty of captured Islamic terrorists in Iraq during that same year.

 

Leftists are mocking the Muslim terrorist theory for Routh’s murders. Beyond the lack of a stressful situation to cause PTSD, Counterjihad experts like Walid Shoebat look to Routh’s beard style that has evolved just prior to the murders through his incarceration awaiting trial. This is the point that Leftist rags and blogs begin their mocking of Counterjihad suspicions. But since most Leftists are in denial that Islam is a violent ideological-religion, Leftists can’t wrap their brains around a beard observation.

Evidence Surfaces That Chris Kyle’s Killer Was Not Suffering From PTSD But May Have Been A Terrorist Sympathizer

 

By Yehuda Remer

Truth Revolt

 

No combat experience. Let me say that again, he NEVER SAW COMBAT or any aspect of traumatic events associated with a combat deployment.”

 

 With his trial to start very soon, new facts have surfaced surrounding the man who shot and killed Chris Kyle.

 

The narrative until now has stated that Eddie Ray Routh was suffering from PTSD when Kyle took him under his wing, attempting to help a fellow veteran in need.  The new facts coming to light could show that Routh was not suffering from PTSD but a converted Muslim who sought out Kyle as retribution for the sniper’s success in Iraq. 

 

Through the Freedom of Information Act, The Warfighter Foundation received Routh’s wartime record and made a startling discovery – Routh was never in combat or in any sort of traumatic experience. 

 

Posted to their Facebook page, they write:

 

Eddie Routh served one tour in Iraq in 2007, at Balad Air Base (the 2nd largest U.S. installation in Iraq), with no significant events. No combat experience. Let me say that again, he NEVER SAW COMBAT or any aspect of traumatic events associated with a combat deployment (i.e. incoming mortar or rocket fire). He never left the base, EVER.

 

He held a non-combat arms occupation of 2111 (Small Arms Repairer/ Technician or more commonly referred to as an Armorer). Balad Air Base had a Pizza Hut, 24 hour Buger (sic) King, Subway, Popeye’s, Baskin Robbins, movie theater, and even a miniature golf course. It even had a strictly enforced 10-mile per hour speed limit! What a dangerous place…

 

His tour was comparable to being on a base in southern California, only with MANY more luxuries that were catered to the morale and welfare of the troops who occupied it. He was known to be a drug user and a below average performer while in the Marine Corps.

 

This has NOTHING to do with PTSD. He was an individual with psychological problems that were not associated with his service. So don’t give me that bleeding heart bullshit that he was a veteran suffering from PTSD.

Okay, time to put an end to this whole discussion that Eddie Routh suffered from PTSD. For those of you who do not know, Eddie Routh is the murderer of US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

 

Eddie Routh served one tour in Iraq in 2007, at Balad Air Base (the 2nd largest U.S. installation in Iraq), with no significant events. No combat experience. Let me say that again, he NEVER SAW COMBAT or any aspect of traumatic events associated with a combat deployment (i.e. incoming mortar or rocket …

What is known, however, is that Routh, while never serving in combat, did work at the Bilad Airbase prison, guarding Muslim terrorists. 

 

Walid Shoebat, a former radicalized Muslim terrorist and member of the PLO who has since converted to Christianity, believes that because of his past and credentials, he is confident in his deduction that Eddie Routh was in fact becoming a radical Muslim, although there is no proof yet of the conversion.

 

Shoebat brings as one proof a phone call Routh had with his father where he expressed sympathy for the detainees he was guarding.

 

“During a phone call with his father, Routh expressed sympathy for the detainees and discontent over how the US was conducting the war as well as his reluctance to engage in combat” and “While working as a guard at Balad Air Base, Routh laments his [Muslim] prisoners’ poor living conditions.”

 

He continues, “It is a known fact that Routh’s family contacted Kyle about their son’s diminishing mental health. Routh was admitted to inpatient psychiatric treatment prior to the events at Rough Creek Ranch, according to a report from the Daily Mail.  Routh had been taken to a mental hospital twice in the past five months and told authorities that he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, police records show.”

 

The second proof Shoebat brings is Routh’s beard with a trimmed mustache.  Shoebat profiles Routh and writes, In the story on Eddie Routh, who murdered Chris Kyle, there are signs of concern, especially the facial hair, it does match the profile of a convert.”

 

Notice the trimmed mustache in one picture but not the other.

 E. R. Routh-trimmed mustache in one picture but not the other

 

“One main key in profiling a Muslim fundamentalist is that they usually trim the mustache,” Shoebat writes.  Always remember, a Muslim fundamentalist is mandated by Islam to trim the mustache, he adds.

 

Is it a stretch?  Was Eddie Routh sent on a covert mission for extremist Muslims hell-bent on killing The Devil of Ramadi?  It will be interesting to watch as the trial unfolds and more information comes out if Kyle’s killer was suffering from PTSD or if he had ties to Muslim extremists.

Examine whether Islam is antithetical to Human Rights


ISIS Torches Jordanian Pilot

ISIS Torches Jordanian Pilot
 
 
This is a petition placed on Change.org by a person who wisely only identifies them self as “Examine Islam”. It is wise because a religious Muslim will very upset with the design of this petition. The media has demonstrated that Muslims who might be identified as “Moderate” act as “Radical” when they feel their prophet or their so-called religion of Islam has been insulted. Westerners exercise their Free Speech rights to parody Mohammed and Muslims across the Islamic world and significant Muslim population centers in Europe riot in streets – in many cases violently.
 
This petition lays out the reasons that Islam is more an anti-Human Rights ideology than a religion and asks World Leaders – especially in the non-Muslim World – to rule Islam is an unacceptable ideology that violates Human Rights.
 
The reality of the matter is that these kinds of petitions rarely have any political effect. AND YET if such large number sign this petition that not even the Lame Stream Media cannot ignore population sentiment may be influenced to wake-up. That means the voice of the voters in the Free World would begin to make their voices heard at the polls.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali on her book Nomad: From Islam to America: A Personal Journey Through the Clash of Civilizations. [Blog Editor: This info from Youtube is not a part of the Change.org petition.]
 
This petition urges the leaders of the Western and non-Muslim World and the UN to examine whether Islam is in fact antithetical to Human Rights law, and incites violence towards non-Muslims and apostates, incites hatred and the rejection of Civil Law. We the undersigned urge our Political Leaders and the United Nations Human Rights Council to examine whether Islam is an ideology rather than a religion and as such should be banned as a belief system in the non-Muslim world.
 
The Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights ruled in February 2003 that Islamic Sharia law is “incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy.” The court said that a legal system based on Sharia law “would diverge from the European Convention on Human Rights, particularly with regard to the rules on the status of women, and its intervention in all spheres of private and public life in accordance with religious precepts.” 
 
Further, the European Court of Human Rights determined on July 31, 2001, that “the institution of Sharia law and a theocratic regime, were incompatible with the requirements of a democratic society.”
 
Sharia law is Islam. Islamic Theocratic regimes are founded upon Islam. In all its manifestations, whether in violent responses to ‘blasphemy’ such as the Charlie Hebdo attacks, or in forcing women to cover their faces, child marriage, beheadings or intolerance towards non-Muslims, Islam, Muslim nations, leaders and Islamic organisations are continuously flouting Human Rights laws.
 
This is evidenced today in Saudi Arabia‘s theocratic (religious) legal system enforcing regular beheadings, banning women from driving and the persecution of minorities, or the much better known barbarism of Isis which takes slaves of women and children and is currently engaged in the extermination of the Yazidi people and conquest of land in Iraq and Syria.
 
Muslim groups Boko Haram and Al-Shabaab in Kenya and Somalia terrorise and kill thousands. Iran regularly hangs and whips dissenters, is close to having a nuclear weapon and has stated its intention to destroy Israel. Jews have been expelled from Muslim nations and Christians continue to be persecuted and killed there for their religious belief.
 
Closer to home, Hizbut Tahir works to establish a global Caliphate and rejects UK law openly. ‘Islamophobia’ is shouted each time Islam causes another horror, in order to crush dissent and debate – regardless of the fact that Islam is responsible for oppression and slaughter, most recently in Paris – NOT non-Muslims.
 
We constantly hear Muslim voices condemning non-Muslim actions (such as publishing cartoons) – yet these are as nothing compared to the killing and oppression BY Muslims. 
 
It is now incumbent on our political leaders and the UN to listen to the voices of non-Muslims and to ex-Muslim testimony in order to finally examine in a dispassionate manner Islam and its relationship to the non-Islamic world. Specifically we ask that a major enquiry is set up to examine whether or not Islam  will pose a threat to the freedoms and Human Rights which we have fought oppression to guard and which we hold so dear in the non-Muslim world.
 
There are now many Muslim groups wanting to establish Sharia law in the West and to make Muslim lands of our nations. The existent rulings by Strasbourg that there no place for Sharia law in a democracy must be upheld everywhere and it means too that non-Muslim nations should stop allowing the voices of Islam to demand special treatment or the silencing of dissent. Ultimately it is the purpose of this petition to ask our leaders to honestly examine whether Islam is compatible with Human Rights in non-Muslim nations. If it is found not to be it should be banned just as Nazism is banned.
 
People like Ayaan Hirsi-Ali and Serkan Engin have left Islam and as such are able to see it clearly. They compare it to a cult or to Nazism – NOT to a religion. Nazism is rightly condemned today, yet Islam has an even worse track record historically. Muhammad was a warlord who himself killed many people and persuaded his followers to kill any who didn’t believe in his new religion.
 
This tendency to kill non-believers is very evident in the history of Islam right through to the present day. Islam was started by Muhammad who was not peaceful nor tolerant -he had Jews and Christians killed. The fact that Iran has a stated aim to ‘destroy Israel’, and the rise of Isis and Islamic terrorist attacks on the West shows clearly that Islam uses the cover and protection of religious freedom to promote its hate-filled, intolerant and violent ideology.
 
If followers of the cult of Scientology were to begin beheading people and violently taking over large parts of the world there would be immediate calls to ban it. Yet there is a popular myth which our leaders and media maintain, that Islam is a religion of the same caliber as Judaism or Christianity. In fact whilst terrible things were done in the name of these religions – the Judeo-Christian faith model is based on strongly moral teaching. Jesus was so peaceful he allowed himself to be killed and abused rather than exhort his followers to kill for him. Islam is based on the example of a violent warlord who did exhort violence as the solution to non-believers.
 
It is Islam which leads to Islamism. The roots of the violence and persecution of other religions which we see both today, and in the history of the belief, are there plainly in the Koran and especially the Hadith or life of Muhammad.
 
Read the following from Bukhari, The Book of Jihad, and consider whether Isis and Boko Haram are in fact much more likely to be simply Muslims rather than radical Muslims – for they DO follow the life of their prophet:
 
‘He (The Prophet) had their hands and feet cut off. Then he ordered that nails should be heated and passed over their eyes, and they were left in the rocky land of Medina. They asked for water, but none provided them with water till they died.’ [3018]
 
Please sign this petition now, and share it widely, to ask our world leaders to stop calling Islam the ‘Religion of Peace’ when it is no such thing – rather it has a history of violence and conquest of non-believers which has not abated to this day.
 
Humanity itself and the freedom of Western civilisation is at threat from this fastest growing belief system which incites hatred, violence and oppression, intolerance and fear wherever it spreads.
 
Islam must be examined as a cult or belief-system which has always and is now a threat to Human peace and civilisation – NOT as a religion. If Sharia and Theocratic Regimes are disallowed under the Human Rights act then why is Islam given the respect of any other religion? Islam is the foundation of Sharia and Islamic Theocracies.
 
There is no place for such a belief system within the non-Muslim world. Please watch Ayaah (sic) Hirsi Ali’s account of Islam and read more on how Islam breaches Human Rights Law here.
 
Thank you for your time and please help us in this struggle to retain our basic freedoms, in the face of this violent oppressor which passes for a ‘religion’ when it is rather no more than a cult.
 
We would not allow Nazism to flourish again unchecked in our lands – we should therefore not allow Islam to place more and more checks on our behaviour until all we hold dear has been destroyed.

Unfooled Grassroots Movements will Save America


WeThePeople-Constitution-Flag

 

John R. Houk

© February 2, 2015

 

A movement that began in Germany is beginning to spread across Europe. That movement reflects a grassroots mentality of becoming fed-up with Muslims practicing Sharia and of a significant amount of Muslims following the literal exhortations of Islamic holy writings in the Quran, Hadith and Sira. The movement acquired the acronym PEGIDA in its German nation of origin. The English translation for this acronym is “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West”.

 

This PEGIDA movement in Europe is widely condemned as Right Wing racism against Muslims by Europe’s ruling elites. The ruling elite is devoted to multiculturalism hence they stick to the opinion that Muslim violence exacted in the name of Allah and Mohammed is not Islam. The reality is though, if you ignore all the Islamic denials, and actually read the Quran, Hadith, Sira and other respected Islamic treatises such as the Reliance of the Traveller (yup the two “Ls” are correct in this case) you discover Islam – unlike most religions – actually calls for violence as an act of submission to Islam and Allah.

 

In recent days the grassroots PEGIDA movement has ran into some difficulties that even true Conservatives have to wag their heads. That difficulty relates to its German founder Lutz Bachmann dressing up as Adolf Hitler and then taking a selfie. Hitler and Nazi junk is illegal in Germany not to mention Jews do not find any humor – if that was Bachmann’s intent – in Hitler portrayals. Indeed European nations have hate-crime laws that our American Constitution would render as a ridiculous infringement of Free Speech. I understand that Bachmann is currently being investigated for breaking a hate-crime law in Germany. The consequence – Bachmann resigned as the leader of PEGIDA which has followed by a host of German PEGIDA leaders also resigning.

 

I am guessing that there are some extremist elements that have violent racist views that have migrated into the PEGIDA movement. I understand that pseudo-Nazi creeps in Germany and European Nazi-sympathizers are making a stealth comeback. My opinion is that the obvious rise of virulent antisemitism is evidence of a resurgence of Nazi/Fascist sentiments but one could also add Muslims subscribing to the commands of Islamic holy writings has made additional antisemitism more noticeable.

 

Europe’s Left-leaning multicultural political elites is quick and correct to condemn the rise of Nazi/Fascist racism yet those same elite are idiotic to look at Muslim violence against Free Speech, against exposing the real Islam and against Jews as if that Muslim violence has nothing to do with Islam. That is simply cultural suicide.

 

Yedioth (or Yediot) Ahronoth (or Ahronot) may be one of the most read of Israel’s news media if not the most read. As an American I prefer to call that media outlet by its internet url “Ynet”. That’s on the old American pronunciation. From what I have read Ynet is centrist on Israel’s political scale with some agendas on the Right and some on the Left. Where I discerned this assessment at 972Mag.com that points out Ynet is tends to lean to the Right on security and military issues but is apparently anti-Netanyahu.

 

I give you this assessment because I ran into an insightful Ynet interview with a PEGIDA spokesman relating to the movement and PEGIDA’s critics. I need you to see this interview then afterwards I will some thoughts on PEGIDA and the need for such a grassroots movement to explode in America before a Muslim violence issue becomes as warped in America as it is in Europe.

 

In exclusive Ynetnews interview, spokesperson of anti-Islamization grassroots initiative addresses Jewish world’s concerns about the movement, says ‘we want Jews and Israelis to feel safe in Europe.’

 

BERLIN – Christian Mayerhoff, a spokesperson for PEGIDA, the grassroots initiative which started in Dresden, Germany in autumn of 2014 and now coordinates anti-Islamist protests in 10 European countries, sat down for an exclusive interview with Ynetnews in Berlin this week in a bid to address the Jewish world’s concerns about his movement.

 

Mr. Mayerhoff, Chancellor Angela Merkel warned Germans in her New Year’s televised address that people at PEGIDA protests are filled with “hatred” in their hearts. What is your reaction to this statement?

 

“We think Frau Merkel wants the world to believe she hold the high moral ground. But this is not true. Her government sells weapons to dictators in the Middle East, such as tanks to Saudi Arabia. Her government closes an eye to the infiltration of German mosques and German cities with Islamist preachers and Islamist propaganda material. What is happening today is totally unacceptable.”

 

PEGIDA claims that Germany and Europe are threatened by Islamization. What do you mean by this?

 

“We mean that there are in many European countries rapidly growing Muslim parallel societies. This is in itself not bad. What is negative and dangerous is that these communities contribute disproportionately to social problems such as vandalism, unemployment, crime and terrorism.

 

“Before we allow these communities to grow further, we should make their members are integrated into mainstream society just like immigrant communities of Eastern Europeans, East Asians and South Americans.”

 

Fears of Islamist activities in Europe were heightened by the latest terror attacks in Paris. Has the response of the German authorities satisfied you?

 

“No it hasn’t. De Maizière, our interior minister, came out saying that these attacks have nothing to do with Islam. This makes him lose all credibility. It’s like saying that Nazism had nothing to do with Germany.”

 

But PEGIDA has been labeled a pro-Nazi, xenophobic and racist movement by mainstream German media. Even Josef Schuster, president of the Central Committee of Jews in Germany, stated that you are pyromaniacs.

 

“We are no Nazis. Personally I was active in left-wing human rights movements in my youth during the early 1990s. After 9/11 I started learning about Islam and Islamism and this changed my opinion about multiculturalism and political correctness. In PEGIDA there are leftists, centrists and conservatives. In the city of Kassel our committee includes a Croatian, a Jew and a secularized Muslim…

 

“But personally, I sympathize with Mr. Schuster. In Germany and Europe, Jews are nowadays harassed and attacked for no reason. If the leaders of Jewish communities said something fair about PEGIDA, it would be used as a pretext by Islamists to escalate their anti-Semitic campaigns.”

 

What anti-Semitic campaigns are you talking about?

 

“Sociologists and pollsters who monitor Muslim communities in Europe regularly reveal that anti-Semitism is rampant, especially among young religious Muslims. In mosque sermons preaching against Jews is a Friday pastime.

 

“For example, last summer in Berlin, Sheikh Abu Bilal Ismail openly called for Jews to be exterminated. He was not incarcerated. This indulgence is suicidal.”

 

Yet Germany’s intellectuals also attack PEGIDA and repeatedly sign public statements to repudiate your agenda. Doesn’t this generalized hostility concern you?

 

“Writers and artists love to sign appeals. They should sign more appeals against ISIS and Boko Haram instead of being obsessed about PEGIDA. They attack us and do not bother to read our demands. Readers should visit us on Facebook and decide for themselves if we are more dangerous than the Islamists in Europe.”

 

But what are your demands concretely?

 

“We support a better treatment of real asylum seekers and the repatriation of fake asylum seekers. We call for a more selective immigration policy in Germany and the European Union along the lines of what works well in Canada, Switzerland and Australia. We demand zero tolerance against religious extremism and against all calls to murder in the name of God.”

 

But don’t you think you are targeting Islam and ignoring the dangers of Christian and Jewish fundamentalism?

 

“All religions should respect the law in Europe. We do not see Europe priests or rabbis calling for believers of other faiths to be murdered.”

 

But all Muslim religious leaders and community leaders in Europe condemned the terror attacks in Paris.

 

“That is not enough. Muslim leaders must stop tolerating imams in their midst who preach violent jihad. We don’t care if it’s jihad in Europe, jihad in Syria or jihad in Palestine. To condemn killing in the name of God must be a basic value.”

 

But who is PEGIDA to demand that Muslims teach a 1,400-year old religion in a way that suits your political agenda?

 

“I am not a Muslim and PEGIDA cannot tell Muslim how to read the Quran. As Europeans we do have the right to demand that all religions in our continent respect the law. To teach that it is good to kill in the name of God is unacceptable and must be seriously punished.”

 

Does PEGIDA have a message for Muslims?

 

“Europe is a generous host. Muslims who respect our laws and ethical values are welcome. Muslims who hate Western values and support violent jihad should not come here. Muslims who are against Islamism are of course welcome at PEGIDA.”

 

Do you have a message for Jews?

 

“We want Jews and Israelis to feel safe in Europe. We want you to be able to show your faith on Europe’s streets openly. We must stand united against Islamism and jihadism.”

 

How does it feel to speak on behalf of the most despised political movement in Germany?

 

“It is very frustrating. The demonization of PEGIDA is evidence that the elites in Germany are completely out of touch with reality.” (PEGIDA spokesman: We are no Nazis; Moritz Josef Schulman; Ynetnews.com; 1/24/15 09:37)

 

So it seems you have a choice. Do you believe European (or more specifically in this case – German) ruling political elites or do you believe the grassroots motivation for protesting against counter-culture Islamization in Europe? You can probably guess I’ll lean with PEGIDA motivation.

 

PEGIDA denies:

 

o   Nazism

 

o   Antisemitism

 

o   AND even any hatred of Muslims

 

There is a qualifier though with Muslims. That qualifier is simple. If Muslims refuse to assimilate into the acceptance of a host nation’s rule of law than those Muslims should not be allowed to immigrate to a Western nation or if that Muslim already lives in a Western nation and agitates for counter-culture Islamic Sharia Law to trump the rule of law they should be deported as a non-citizen or if such a literalist Quranic Muslim is a citizen by naturalizing or birth they should be invited to leave to a culture more acceptable to their Islamic beliefs.

                                     

America’s Tea Party Movement has ran into the same Left Wing vilification in attempts to brainwash Americans that the Tea Party are a bunch of Right Wing and racist-hatred-filled thugs that undermine America’s tolerance and Constitution.

 

Of course that is a load of Leftist propaganda. Is it possible that extremist Right Wing racist have hooked up with the Tea Party? Of course it is. Is this representative of the mainstay of the grassroots activists of the Tea Party Movement? That’s a big negative good buddy.

 

Of course the Left Leaning American Mainstream Media has been reluctant to tell Americans that extremist Leftist elements have either infiltrated or have attended Tea Party rallies to agitate or engage in false reporting to tell Americans the propaganda lies.

 

Then there is the Mainstream romanticized Leftist Occupy Wall Street Movement. In the Occupy Wall Street most active days there are a host of headlines of Occupiers being arrested for violence, murder, rape and terrorism. The numbers are in the high hundreds to the low thousands. You can check out the numerous Occupy headlines and included summaries at NRO.

 

Then there are the Ferguson riots in which Democrats and Black Activist race-baiters were practically calling for the lynching of Officer Darren Wilson – a Caucasian – for shooting to death 18 year old Michael Brown – a Black Man. Again the Left lean Mainstream Media without knowing the facts painted Officer Wilson as a Black-hating racist that used unnecessary force to shoot a poor unarmed Black teenager.

 

After a Grand Jury and even Holder’s DOJ investigation cleared Wilson the agitators STILL wanted Officer Wilson’s head metaphorically.

 

Between the incidents in which a gigantic male of the age of majority roughed up a store clerk for some cigs then proceeding to walk belligerently down the middle of the street which caught Officer Wilson’s attention an arrest was attempted. Brown resisted arrest violently smacking Officer Wilson in the face and attempting to unholster Wilson’s weapon. In the scuffle Wilson managed to prevent Brown from obtaining his weapon. Brown then began to flee. Wilson told Brown to stop. Rather than surrender, Brown charged Wilson like a rabid Rhino which resulted in Wilson discharging several shots at Brown. It is my perception that Wilson took a head shot when the previous body shots failed to stop the charge. It is an absolute myth that Brown got on his knees with his back to Wilson with his hands raised in surrender. THAT NEVER HAPPENED!

 

Not willing to wait for the truth, race baiters agitated. And the good citizens of Ferguson went on looting rampages engaging in property damage and theft from Ferguson stores.

 

Dear God in Heaven contrast these typical Leftist inspired protests with the goings on with Tea Party Movement rallies. Left = Violent Rage. Conservative Right Tea Party = Peaceful yet displeased Patriotism.

 

Going Back to PEGIDA

 

The United States of America needs a Tea Party style PEGIDA Movement to demonstrate American displeasure with culture-failing-to-assimilate immigrants – Muslims and Latin Americans – making America their home. This is especially the case with Muslims that are pre-disposed to Sharia-literal-Quran wielding immigrants who would rather agitate the downfall of Constitutional America than assimilate to the E Pluribus Unum melting pot that has made America one culture rather than a disunited diverse multiple cultures.

 

Abraham Lincoln’s House Divided Speech did not win him his Senate run against Stephen Douglas; however the speech made Lincoln’s name go viral in however that happened in 1858 and thrust him to be the first Republican President in the 1860 election.

 

Lincoln’s House Divided Speech context was a nation divided between a no-slave North and a slave South will not survive. Either nation will become one or the other but both cannot coincide together. That was wisdom that kept are nation morally united rather than immorally united in slavery.

 

The Left Wing Multiculturalist paradigm cannot coincide with an America united by the Founding Fathers document we call the Constitution. Either Multiculturalism will fracture America’s Union into various nations only united in their region or the Constitution will be fought for to our Union the United States of America. Multicultural fracturing will turn a once strong America where immigrant dreams had hope, into diverse multiple independent States trying to preserve the heritage of their region. The ONLY way this Union remains these United States is the best Constitution the rule of law has experienced in history.

 

House Divide Speech

 

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Convention.

 

If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it.

 

We are now far into the fifth year, since a policy was initiated, with the avowed object, and confident promise, of putting an end to slavery agitation.

 

Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only, not ceased, but has constantly augmented.

 

In my opinion, it will not cease, until a crisis shall have been reached, and passed.

 

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

 

I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free.

 

I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided.

 

It will become all one thing or all the other.

 

Either the opponents of slavery, will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as newNorth as well as South.

 

(House Divided Speech; Abraham Lincoln; June 16, 1858; AbrahamLincolnOnline.org)

 

A grassroots PEGIDA Movement is as needed in the USA to preserve the American Union under the U.S. Constitution as is the Tea Party Movement needed to remind Americans that this nation’s Founding principles are on taxation ONLY with representation and Less Government rather than a nearing autocratic huge government the Democrats and American Leftists are leading toward.

Farewell to Netanyahu


Benjamin Netanyahu 2011

By Ari Bussel

Editor: John R. Houk

1/31/15

 

Ari Bussel writes a bit of a eulogy for Benjamin Netanyahu as Prime Minister of Israel. This is essay is less of a criticism of Netanyahu and more of a – Netanyahu’s time has gone full circle and it is inevitable for new Israeli leadership to take the reins of leadership to keep Israel a sovereign Jewish State.

 

If you have read any of the blog posts here in the past you know that I am a staunch Christian Zionist that supports the concept of a Jewish State embracing the full Biblical capacity of its borders. That means a one united Jerusalem with full sovereignty over the more correctly called Judea-Samaria labeled as the West Bank named as such after British-led Jordanian troops (then the Transjordan Arab Legion) vanquished the newly independent Israeli forces standing for Israel in 1948. Jordan’s King Abdullah annexed the area west of the Jordan River as part of a sovereign Jordan. Does anyone ever wonder why five or six invading Arab armies – including a contingent of pretend Palestinians – sought to destroy independent Israel in 1948 and yet Jordan annexes land west of the Jordan River rather than establishing an independent Jew-hating Arab State called Palestine?

 

The Israeli Right – Israel’s version of a religious Right – may not appreciate my Christian Zionist reasons for supporting Israel. My reasoning is centered on prophecy that Israel needs to exist as at least one condition for the return of Jesus Christ. Not a popular thought of either Jewish Left or Jewish Right. History has given Jews ample reasons to mistrust Christians via a millennium antisemitic dealings by Christian religious leaders and Christian Kings that have led to expulsions, forced conversions and violent pogroms.

 

In my own personal views, my take on Jews accepting Christ as their Messianic Deliverer depends more on Jesus’ return than any Christian evangelism. For me this is especially the case with Jews worldwide and in Israel being fractured religiously and secularly in their life outlook. Why mandate something that is in God’s hands. Does anyone have a clue for the reason Jews have remained a distinct people even after they were kicked out of their own land and have existed under persecuted circumstances from Christians, Muslims, Communists, and Nazis and probably even a longer list? The Jews are in God’s Hands as the People of Promise regardless to what any non-Jewish person believes in any kind of antisemitic stand.

 

Anyway … I really don’t want to take away from Ari Bussel’s essay with my Christian-Right-Zionist rants. Oops, I already did.

 

There a couple of people in Ari’s essay you should look up on your own.

 

If you are an American following Israel’s politics even a little bit you are probably aware of the Leftist leadership of Tzipi Livni. Livni has been the promoter of Israel’s ‘Peace in our Time’ appeasement to Arabs calling themselves Palestinians believe ‘Land for Peace’ will solve Israel’s Jew-hatred of Jews.

 

You may not so aware of an emerging leader of the Jewish Religious Right known as Naftali Bennett. Bennett has an interesting One-State Solution involving the three sectors of Judea-Samaria (A, B and C) that guarantees a One Jerusalem and total Arab autonomy yet without national sovereignty. Ari Bussel suspects Bennett will eventually replace Benjamin Netanyahu as the leader of Israel’s Right and seems to indicate Bennett’s ideas will ensure Israel statehood more than Israel’s Leftist ideas.Naftali Bennett

 

I did a little digging on Naftali Bennett. Here is some suggested reading:

Farewell to Netanyahu

 

By Ari Bussel

Sent: 1/30/2015 9:06 PM

 

The current Netanyahu government was not only the longest-serving but likely one of the strongest in recent memory.  But like all things, it is coming to an end, as it must.

 

Holding on to power is addictive, and those at the helm are thus reluctant to relinquish the power, explaining to one and all, and persuading themselves first and foremost, that they are the only viable alternative.  Except in life, I learned long ago in the military, everything is replaceable; everything has its time.

 

On March 17th, a new election will take place in Israel, and if I gauge the blowing winds correctly, President Rivlin will task the formation of the new coalition government on the “Zionist Camp” (a misleading term self-chosen by the centrist-left party).

 

Be warned, my faithful reader, I neither attempt to be a forecaster nor a prophet, for only fools will do that.  Quite on the contrary, I sense those very subtle vibrations under the surface, the whims and whispers no one expresses out loud but that can be felt radiating from Israel’s being.

 

In every election, there is a tipping point where one can feel the momentum gathering and a shift toward one side or another (or against all sides altogether, when there is very little interest in an election cycle).

 

Much can change in the next forty-some days, although the overall discontent with Netanyahu is palatable.  Is this surprising?  Not in the least.  The academia, media and judicial echelons have long shifted toward the left, and Netanyahu, for them, is an obstacle; a most formidable, thus requiring crushing.

 

In and of itself, this last statement is a great testament to the strength and true value of Netanyahu.  Like Israel – the only obstacle in the spread of radical Islam to establish a global Islamic Caliphate – Netanyahu is the only fort standing tough and stubborn against a majority of Israelis who befell to the nonsense of “peace”-by-sacrifice.  (No rational human being will enter into “peace” when the other side capitulates in advance, inviting – just hit me more, please, do as you please.)

 

Netanyahu is not very concerned, so it is felt, with the common person.  Thus, Israel has become a country of haves and have-nots, with the abyss between the two ever growing.  I feel it too, and I should not, for I am but a casual observer, a visitor.

 

As for the majority of Israelis – those who live very well, travel regularly overseas and generally enjoy life – Netanyahu’s realistic approach to life in this neighborhood is an affront to their delicate senses.

 

I am already preparing a clean handkerchief and feel the anger building up inside me:  How dare Netanyahu be the only obstacle to Peace in Our Lifetime (well, he and the “Settlers” of course)?!!

 

They – Israel’s majority – want peace.  They do not want to serve in the military or in reserves any more.  They want “two people, living side by side in peace,” and long ago they befell the euphoric mirage of “just give back the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and peace will imminently arrive.”  [There are not enough double quotes to correct the numerous fallacies in the previous sentence.  Each word shouts to be corrected, but let us leave them alone for a moment. (Blog Editor: Bold Text mine – not in original)]

 

Israelis are a very smart people, and yet they act in most irrational manners.  For them, Netanyahu is the obstacle to peace, as he stands safeguarding Israel’s security now and in the future.

 

Livni, for instance, the second in command of the so-called “Zionist Camp” has already admitted long ago to the need to divide Jerusalem.  She became belligerent when exposed but will not change her position.  So the battle lines are clear.  There is one true leader with his legs grounded in history, reality and the future, and across there is a leader who talks the same talk the enemy speaks in English to Western ears.

 

When push comes to shove, the two leaders will end up indistinguishable, acting to defend and ensure the survival of the Jewish state.  Except, one was complicit in bringing the day when drastic measures are necessary (and was busy blaming the other), while the other did everything possible to prevent that day from coming.

 

Israelis, exactly as happened in the USA six and two years ago, will most likely bring about a new government, and oust Netanyahu for good (for once out of the system, a new leadership will emerge, like a new life sprouting after a forest fire).

 

Democrats have lawfully elected and re-elected President Obama, issues of Mickey Mouse and some dead people voting or voting multiple times notwithstanding.  Thus, we – Republicans – cannot complain and have to respect the person sitting in the White House, or at the very least the Office of the President.  This said, we are praying constantly there will be a US of A to save once this ordeal is over, that the damage inflicted will leave us able to stand up and rise again.

 

What will be in Israel?  Israelis must learn a lesson, the hard way.  My father, Dr. Bussel, says that for education we pay.  The same will be true in Israel. 

 

A majority is convinced that the way for peace and prosperity is by relinquishing any right we have.  Judea (the root of the word Jewish) – needs to be given “back.”  Jerusalem (the very beating heart of our being) – is de facto to them “divided” (how quickly do these “Zionists” forget 1967 and 1948 and the forever United Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, as they apparently oblivious to the two thousand year craving for Zion Jerusalem).

 

So strong is the urge to have the center-left rule, once again, that Israelis feel an urge and will stop at nothing to make it happen in the upcoming election.

 

The President then tasks the formation of a new government to the head of the party most likely to succeed in building a coalition of more than 60 members (more than half the 120 members of the Knesset).

 

What does the Future Hold / Is Israel doomed? [Bold Text Editor’s]

Unlike the USA during the last presidential election (and at the moment in the upcoming election), there is a viable alternative in Israel.  He is not a “one-timer,” candidate of the flavor-of-the-moment.  He has proven himself time and again.  He stands on a firm basis of ideals and values, and he is willing to try and fail.  What he lacks in experience, he gains in motivation and willingness to err and rise again.

 

His name is Naftali Bennett, and he heads a party The Jewish Home (Habait Hayehudi).  The party is likely the third largest at the moment, but in the high seas, as every wave threatens to swallow whole a tiny ship called Israel navigating the rough waters, it can turn to be the largest party and Bennett be assigned the task of forming the new government.

 

Bennett is made of the same matter true leaders are made.  Definitely Begin, Golda, even Ben Gurion.  But do not let this analysis or momentary comparison go to his head.

 

Politics, Everywhere

 

The United States, currently playing poker and politics all at once, must be ready.  On the one hand, the President refuses to meet with Netanyahu just weeks before the upcoming elections, on the other hand, a full contingency of his election advisors is here in Israel to make sure that “Bibi goes home.”  I will not be surprised if the American Embassy in Israel keeps meddling in Israeli political affairs as it has done continually in the service of the Commander in Chief.

 

It is indeed an end of an era; Netanyahu’s.  A new label was recently attached to Netanyahu, “the modern-day Churchill.”  But does Netanyahu really need to talk before another joint session of Congress?  Is it not up to us – Americans – to decide if we want a reconciliation and submission to the Iranians, a la President Obama, or standing firm, as do Russian and China?  Do we need a foreign leader, Netanyahu, to come and tell us the folly of our ways?  One must remember:  Many Americans still believe in our President, so we too will eventually pay a price.

In a very similar manner, Israelis will pay a dear price if Livni and her cohorts are to lead Israel after the elections.  Except, that in politics, contrary to all expectations, it may be neither Netanyahu nor the so-called “Zionist Camp.” 

 

Netanyahu has done tremendous things for Israel, but a new generation is about to take his place.  Bennett does not talk about being the next prime minister, making him the perfect candidate and the more serious of all.  Humility is a virtue, and a man displaying this and other traits inside, not as a peacock displaying his feathers, is indeed deserving to lead the country.

IT’S OFFICIAL! I’M EMBARRASSED FOR MY COUNTRY


Morgan Brittany as Katherine Katherine Wentworth Dallas TV series 1981-1987


Being a fan of the Big Screen and TV I have a little knowledge actors and actresses. Which brings me to an actress who has turned to Conservative activism. That actress is Morgan Brittany. I recall Ms. Brittany primarily from the television series Dallas – the original series in the 70s.
 
WND sent me an editorial attributed to Morgan Brittany in which she essentially excoriates President Barack Hussein Obama who taking America onto an embarrassing path of weakness.

IT’S OFFICIAL! I’M EMBARRASSED FOR MY COUNTRY
Exclusive: Morgan Brittany reacts to jaw-dropping ‘dumbing down of America’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON – Every day I wake up and think, “What is this country going to face now? What crazy, upside-down event is in store for America today?” I keep thinking, it can’t get worse than yesterday, but it does!

Over the past few months we citizens of this great country have had to endure unbelievable, jaw-dropping decisions by our “so-called” leaders. Starting last summer, there was the Ferguson nightmare that was stoked by the ringmaster of this circus, Al Sharpton, who, along with Eric Holder, inserted themselves into a situation without knowing any details or evidence in the shooting of Michael Brown which ended up causing more violence, looting and destruction of private property. We were all privy to scenes provided by the media of people burning and turning over vehicles, stealing anything that they could get their hands on and rioting in the streets. Lovely.

As if that weren’t embarrassing enough, we had ISIS beheading an American citizen and releasing a graphic video of the act. Our illustrious commander in chief gave a statement that lasted less than five minutes. He delivered an annoyed reaction to the violence and rushed off so that he could get back to “yucking it up” on the golf course. We all just shook our heads at that one.

After more radical Islamic terror in the Middle East, Canada and here in the U.S., you would think the “powers that be” would put on their Sunday suits and start looking presidential, decisive and authoritative. But no, that just isn’t in their playbook. When France was rocked by a terror attack that killed the journalists of “Charlie Hebdo” and others, leaders from all around the globe gathered in solidarity to make a stand against radical Islam and terror. Yes, it might have been a strange gathering, and perhaps it was a photo op, but it still meant something to the people of these countries that their leaders made an effort to care.

What did our leader do? He blew it off. He embarrassed the United States by not showing up or even sending a significant representative. How did the White House respond when it came to their attention that they screwed up? Press Secretary Josh Earnest danced around the subject and made every excuse he could from; there wasn’t enough time, to, “well, I guess we should have sent someone of higher significance.” Ya think?

At that point, they should have just left it alone, but they dug themselves in deeper by sending Secretary of State John Kerry to Paris to give President Hollande and the French people a “big hug.” That was followed by James Taylor serenading them with a rendition of “You’ve Got a Friend.” Oh please. Upon hearing that, I was looking for the nearest rock to crawl under.

Last week, we were once again treated to another presidential malfunction. Hours after Obamas State of the Union speech, the country of Yemen went into meltdown. This was one of the places that he had touted as a huge success story for us in the Middle East, and now it was being overrun by Shiite Houthi rebels who had succeeded in overthrowing one of the only friendly governments that we had in the region. The media ran footage of angry rebels shouting “Death to America!” and raising their weapons in defiance. Humiliating? I would say so.

With Yemen in tatters and ISIS and al-Qaida growing stronger by the day, Obama seemed oblivious to anything except his agenda. Instead of keeping the bad guys locked up, he opened the gates to Guantanamo and let out more terrorists to return to the battlefield – another stupid and embarrassing decision.

At this point, we are all thinking that someone in the White House has got to be noticing that this is not looking good for America and that the optics need to change. You would think that given the choice of meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu or doing interviews with YouTube sensation GloZell Green it would be a “no-brainer.”

As unbelievable as it seems, Obama decided to disrespect the prime minister when he visits to speak with Congress and not accept a meeting, yet he had a one on one sit down with Ms. Green. She may be a YouTube sensation with millions of viewers watching her bathe in Froot Loops, with her green lipstick, but really? This is where we are when we think of the president of the United States?! I can’t imagine what the leaders around the world are thinking when they see this.

This display is just more of the dumbing down of America. It is playing to the lowest common denominator. Instead of encouraging excellence and honoring the best that we can be, we are showing the world how stupid and embarrassing we can be. We are elevating and rewarding bad behavior and demonizing and tearing down heroes like Chris Kyle. Unbelievable.

Oh, and one last thing. The media really need to get their priorities straight. Yemen, ISIS and al-Qaida are on fire, Iran is inches away from getting nukes, Cuba is now our “bestie,” but the media are spending all of its time on Tom Brady’s deflated balls.

Lord, save me. Please.
