Egyptian Government Fighting True Islam While Obama…


`BHO Anti-American Pro-Muslim Creed


WordPress.com friend futuret left a comment on the post “JEWS, NETANYAHU, FRANCE, ISLAM AND THE AGENDA” on my NCCR blog. Actually the comment was simply in a form of a link. The link was to an article by Ben Barrack who writes for Shoebat.com.
 
Barrack’s article is roughly about President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi of Egypt having an issue with the Foreign Policy/Diplomacy of President Barack Hussein Obama’s support for Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Islamists in general.
 
I don’t know about you but I am fascinated an Egyptian Muslim ruler who is critical of the Muslim Brotherhood and those that take part in that kind of Salafist Islam While Obama is helpful toward that ilk. This relatively behind the scenes tug-of-war between two heads of state makes the optics of Obama not showing up for the Kumbaya moment with the primarily multiculturalist Left oriented heads of state marching in (cough) unity against terrorism but not the religion that breeds terrorism.
 
So thanks futuret.

Egyptian Government Fighting True Islam While Obama And His Muslim Family Supporting And Advancing True Islam
 
January 14, 2015
 
Political battle lines between the Egyptian government led by el-Sisi and the Barack Obama administration, which leads the U.S., have been drawn. A major salvo was fired on January 1st, when Egyptian president, Gen. Abdel Fatah el-Sisi admonished Islamic scholars at al-Azhar University. As Shoebat.com reported, this was a brazen statement against Barack Obama himself, who nearly six years earlier launched his pro-Muslim Brotherhood / pro-Arab Spring agenda in a speech at that very same university.
 
In many ways, what el-Sisi did to Obama from a podium at al-Azhar was the political equivalent of what he did by leading the overthrow of Mohammed Mursi in 2013. It was also a speech that created pro-Obama and pro-Sisi camps by providing a stark contrast to the Obama ideology that western leaders like Cameron of the UK, Hollande of France and Merkel of Germany have not.
 
 Barack Obama, Malik Obama & Abdel Fatah el-Sisi
 
Days later, on January 7th, it was events that provided even more contrast as Muslim terrorists in Paris murdered people in cold blood for their speech. Western leaders send muddled messages instead of clear ones. The best example can be seen in the much ballyhooed Paris march on January 11th that included Cameron, Hollande and Merkel showing solidarity with Mahmoud Abbas and Turkey’s Ahmet Davutoglu.
 
Normally reliable conservative Newt Gingrich attempted to put his finger on the problem by going after Obama for not attending the Paris rally. Gingrich concluded Obama is either cowardly or crazy. Neither is correct; Obama is pro-Muslim Brotherhood because his family is part of the organization and Egyptians are the only ones who have been so vocal about this; they also have the proof.
 
 Paris Rally- Hollande, Merkel, Abbas and Davutoglu
 
As Shoebat.com reported, western leaders were standing with terrorist-supporting leaders like Turkey’s Davutoglu. Conversely, when it comes to el-Sisi, the Egyptian leader is quite forcefully taking out terrorists. Many of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders who’ve escaped Egypt have found safe haven in Davutoglu’s Turkey.
 
The Obama administration has been playing nice with the el-Sisi regime for more than a year despite having significant problems with the Egyptian leader. This is reflected in the appointment of R. Stephen Beecroft as the U.S. Ambassador to Egypt; this was not Obama’s first choice. The man expected to replace the clearly Muslim Brotherhood-friendly Anne Patterson was Robert Ford, the former U.S. Ambassador to Syria.
 
U.S. Ambassador to Egypt R. Stephen Beecroft
 
As Shoebat.com has reported previously, Ford’s allegiances are disconcerting as he has supported Islamist rebels in Syria with clear allegiances to the Brotherhood. He clearly did not pass the smell test with the el-Sisi government and was rejected as a suitable ambassador not by Obama but by Egypt. Again, this was a clear rejection of the Muslim Brotherhood, not just the U.S. and again, muddled messages continue to be sent from American politicians in Congress who bizarrely support Syria’s rebels.
 
 Robert Ford- Supported Muslim Brotherhood in Syria
 
Last February, Reuters reported on some ‘inside baseball’ about why Ford is not now the U.S. Ambassador to Egypt:
 
Ford had been expected to become U.S. ambassador to Egypt, according to several sources, but Egyptian government officials had objected because they regarded him as too close to Islamist parties in the Middle East.
 
A former State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was his understanding that the Egyptian government had made clear it did not want Ford to go to Cairo to serve as U.S. ambassador.
 
Under diplomatic practice known as “agrement (sic),” a country typically contacts another country before sending an ambassador to ensure the choice is acceptable. In this case, Ford’s candidacy did not even get that far, said the former U.S. official, who has spoken to Egyptian officials about the matter.
 
One week prior to that report by Reuters that Ford would be unacceptable, Shoebat.com first revealed the disturbing allegiances of Barack Obama’s brother Malik Obama. A photo from Malik’s own website showed him in Sana’a, Yemen wearing a Hamas scarf that called for the eradication of Israel. The point of bringing this up is not to show or claim any cause and effect relationship.
 
 Malik Obama, Mama Sarah Obama, Musa Ismail Obama, and Sayed Obama
 
The point is to show the leverage against the Obama administration that el-Sisi has been amassing since Malik’s involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood was first revealed by Shoebat.com shortly after the IRS scandal broke. Again, however, U.S. politicians send muddled messages by not seizing upon the Malik Obama scandal while both houses of the U.S. Congress voted to back Muslim Brotherhood rebels in Syria.
 
After the overthrow of Mursi, the case of Malik Obama quickly caught the attention of the leaders in Egypt who filled the vacuum.
 
The first salvo fired against Obama came from the former Chancellor of the Constitutional Court of Egypt, Tahani el-Jebali in August of 2013, a highly respected and prominent voice. As Shoebat.com reported at the time, Jebali stated she would like…
 
“…to inform the American people that their president’s brother Obama is one of the architects of the major investments of the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
 
As Shoebat.com would later reveal, there was most definitely a money trail that included Malik’s dealings. More damaging was the fact that terrorist dealings didn’t just include Malik; they included other Obama family members as well.
 
Al-Jebali- Egyptian official 
 
El-Jebali [Blog Editor: the more numerous spelling Tahani al-Gebali] added…
 
“We will carry out the law and the Americans will not stop us. We need to open the files and begin court sessions. The Obama administration cannot stop us; they know that they supported terrorism. We will open the files so these nations are exposed, to show how they collaborated with them [the terrorists]. It is for this reason why the American administration fights us.
 
Soon thereafter, a complaint was filed with the office of Egypt’s Prosecutor General, Hisham Barakat, as Shoebat.com reported. Complaint No. 1761 / 2013 actually made it onto Barakat’s radar, a very explosive development indeed. The complaint mentioned el-Jebali’s claims, which provided additional credibility.
 
 Hisham Barakat
 
In the many months that have transpired since, the case against Malik has only gotten stronger; much stronger. The repository of articles can be found here. The evidence in that case has no doubt been piling up in a drawer somewhere in an office of the el-Sisi government as well.
 
A reliable source has revealed that Malik was the middleman who introduced Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat el-Shater to the Obama administration. In April of 2012, as a Muslim Brotherhood delegation was visiting the White House and doing a media tour, el-Shater’s decision to run for President of Egypt was announced. He was subsequently disqualified because of his rap sheet and prison sentences. Mursi took his place but as the Brotherhood’s Deputy Supreme Guide, el-Shater had a tremendous amount of power within the Brotherhood government.
 
This information would help to explain why Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham traveled to Egypt to call for the release of Brotherhood leaders, including Mursi and el-Shater. They did so as emissaries for Barack Obama. In addition to their bizarre mission, the Senators appeared panicked.
 
 

 
On the eve of their trip, then Secretary of State Bill Burns secretly met for 90 minutes with the jailed el-Shater on a Sunday night, hours before McCain and Graham landed in Cairo for a conversely high-profile visit. El-Shater’s chief of staff – Gehad el-Haddad – at first tried to deny the meeting between his boss and Burns took place and then attempted to say it only lasted ten minutes.
 
El-Haddad, who worked for five years as an employee of the Clinton Foundation, was soon thereafter jailed as well. In addition to Huma Abedin’s ties to the Muslim Sisterhood, the jailed el-Haddad provides el-Sisi with leverage on someone else – Hillary Clinton.
 
Barack Obama and el-Sisi best represent the world’s two most polar opposite views today and it is el-Sisi who has the biggest advantage – and more people flocking to his worldview, which is not muddled at all.

For the record, my name is Walid Shoebat. I used to be a radicalized Muslim willing to die for the cause of Jihad until I converted to Christianity in 1994. As a member of the PLO I was involved in terror activity, and was imprisoned in Jerusalem for three weeks. In prison, I was recruited to plant a bomb in Bethlehem as a result of which, thank God, no one was injured. My mother was an American and my father a Palestinian Arab. My parents sent me in 1978 to the United States to study at Loop College in Chicago Illinois. There I was recruited at a hotel “Terror Conference” by Jamal Said, a founder of the IAP (Islamic Association of Palestine) and Imam at one of the largest mosques in Chicago. The IAP was a forerunner to today’s Hamas terror organization and also to the terror front group CAIR (Council for American Islamic relations). This was in the early 1980s when I was being trained for Jihad activities in the USA along with many other young foreigners as well as US citizens. The Imams were the prime recruiters for terrorism then as they are still today and terror conferences are held all over the USA to READ THE REST
 

Swing Those Doors of Ijtihad OPEN


General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi - Egypt 2

General Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi

 

John R. Houk

General El-Sisi the head of the Egyptian military and current of head state gave a speech recently that is sure to be controversial in the Muslim world. The speech took place at Armed Forces’ Department of Moral Affairs. Here is a translated paragraph from The Clarion Project that should pique your interest:

 

“Religious discourse is the greatest battle and challenge facing the Egyptian people, pointing to the need for a new vision and a modern, comprehensive understanding of the religion of Islam—rather than relying on a discourse that has not changed for 800 years.” (Egypt’s El-Sisi Boldly Calls For Islamic Reformation; By RYAN MAURO; Clarion Project; 1/22/14)

 

The rest of Mauro’s article looks at the Muslim theological concept of Ijtihad. The theological concept is important because Ijtihad was the method of interpreting Islam’s holy writings and how to implement those interpretations. Apparently it is a process by which Muslim scholars provide a consensus legal interpretation. The problem that Ijtihad presents for Islam is that new Ijtihad interpretations was closed around the 10th century AD. The closed door means Islam stopped updating at about that time in history dooming the religion to a Mohammed-like medievalism, well forever. This is what General El-Sisi proposed to change.

 

I am not a Muslim scholar, rather I am a devout Christian that looks at Islam (really any religion or ideology) through the glasses of Biblical Christian Faith. I and many Counterjihad writers have come to the view that Islam based directly on the Quran, Hadith and Sunnah is a violent intolerant religion and since those writings are considered sacred – especially the Quran as the direct revelation of Allah – Islam will always inspire Muslims that subscribe to what the West calls radical Islam. It is my belief that Bill Warner of Political Islam provides the simplest explanation as to how Islam regards these considered holy writings:

 

 

The Islamic Bible—the Trilogy

 

Islam is defined by the words of Allah in the Koran, and the words and actions of Mohammed, called the Sunna.

 

The Sunna is found in two collections of texts—the Sira (Mohammed’s life) and the Hadith. The Koran says 91 times that his words and actions are considered to be the divine pattern for humanity.

 

A hadith, or tradition, is a brief story about what Mohammed did or said. A collection of hadiths is called a Hadith. There are many collections of hadiths, but the most authoritative are those by Bukhari and Abu Muslim, the ones used in this book.

 

So the Trilogy is the Koran, the Sira and the Hadith. Most people think that the Koran is the bible of Islam, but it is only about 14% of the total textual doctrine. The Trilogy is the foundation and totality of Islam.

 

clip_image001

 

No one text of the Trilogy can stand by itself; it is impossible to understand any one of the texts without the other supporting texts. The Koran, Sira, and Hadith are a seamless whole and speak with one voice. If it is in the Trilogy it is Islam. (A Taste of Islam: The Life of Mohammed, The Sira; By Bill Warner; Center for the Study of Political Islam; © 2010; Page 1)

 

I suspect General El-Sisi will be labeled a heretic or an apostate by the most Conservative Islamic sects that we Westerner label as radical Islam. It remains to be seen if General El-Sisi suggestions will move forward without some kind Islamic civil war especially among the majority Sunnis (Sunnis roughly make up 90% of Islam and the Shia sects represent about 10%).

 

Here is something that should place into context the difficulty of reopening this door to Ijtihad. The most influential elements of Islam in America come from what we call the Radical Islam. Primarily these influences are the Wahhabis represented by Saudi money and the Muslim Brotherhood which is now waging a terror campaign in Egypt due to their favored President Morsi being deposed by the Egyptian military after the Egyptian populace began to riot in protest over Morsi’s pro-Muslim Brotherhood initiative to Islamize Egyptian society and government to the strict adherence of the Quran, Hadith and Sira.

 

Muslim Apologists go out of their way to tell non-Muslim Americans that the core values of Islam is peace and that Radical Islam is an aberration from the “real” Islam. AND yet most of these apologists are often connected to Radical Islamic movements such as Saudi Wahhabis and the Salafist oriented Muslim Brotherhood. Saudi Wahhabi control over 80% of the Mosques in America and the Muslim Brotherhood picks up where the Saudis leave off with a direct lineage to the most influential Muslim organization in America (See Also The Muslim Brotherhood in America). As far as I am concerned Islam in America is radicalized regardless of the deception spouted by Muslim Apologists.

Egypt’s El-Sisi Boldly Calls For Islamic Reformation

Islam, said El-Sisi needs a modern understanding and should not rely on a discourse that has not changed for 800 years.

 

By Ryan Mauro

January 22, 2014

Clarion Project

 

General El-Sisi, the commander of the Egyptian Armed Forces and current head of state, is essentially calling for a reformation in Islam. His bold declaration comes as the Egyptian people approved a constitution in a vote that the Muslim Brotherhood boycotted.

 

The speech, which went unnoticed in the Western media, took place at the Armed Forces’ Department of Moral Affairs. In the speech, El-Sisi said:

 

“Religious discourse is the greatest battle and challenge facing the Egyptian people, pointing to the need for a new vision and a modern, comprehensive understanding of the religion of Islam—rather than relying on a discourse that has not changed for 800 years.”

 

Notice what El-Sisi did not say. He did not say Zionism or Western oppression is the greatest threat to Egypt, nor did he point to a specific group like Al-Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood. He accurately framed the struggle as an ideological one within Islam.

 

When he refers to the “discourse that has not changed for 800 years,” he’s referring to when the most qualified Islamic scholars of that time ruled that all questions about interpretation had been settled. The “gates” of ijtihad, the independent interpretation of Islam, ended by the year 1258. He wants the “gates” reopened, allowing for the critical examination that an Islamic reformation needs.

 

Elsewhere in the speech, Sisi “called on all who follow the true Islam to improve the image of this religion in front of the world, after Islam has been for decades convicted of violence and destruction around the world, due to the crimes falsely committed in the name of Islam.”

 

This is another important declaration. He attributes Islamic extremism to this lack of discourse. He doesn’t blame it on a Jewish conspiracy to defame Islam or describe it as an overreaction to non-Muslim aggression.

 

He is also pre-empting the Islamists’ inevitable attack that he is an apostate by stating that Muslims are advancing Islam by having this discourse and turning away from violence. He takes away the argument from extremists that they are the model of a devout Muslim.

 

The next question is whether El-Sisi has the standing in Muslim opinion to be listened to. For now, the answer is yes. The Egyptian military that he leads has a 70% favorability rating, while the Muslim Brotherhood’s rating is at 34%. He is almost certain to run for president and, at this stage, is likely to win.

 

When the military toppled President Morsi and El-Sisi announced the suspension of the Islamist-written constitution, he was joined by the Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar University, an institution that is basically the equivalent of the Vatican for Sunni Islam. To date, Al-Azhar has not broken with El-Sisi or condemned his remarks.

 

Other influential Egyptians may endorse El-Sisi’s view. In January 2011, former Egyptian Islamist Tawfik Hamid reported that 25 Islamic scholars, including teachers from Al-Azhar, said that Ijtihad needed to be resumed. The 10 points they listed for renewed examination included the separation of mosque and state, women’s rights, relations with non-Muslims and jihad.

 

Calls for reform and ijtihad can be heard beneath the visible surface of the Muslim world. In my own experience, I’ve heard many average Muslims endorse reformation but their views are not reflected in the national leadership.

 

Some of these reformist Muslims want to reopen the “gates” of ijtihad, while others say they never considered them closed to begin with. For example, Tunisian professor Dr. Muhamd El-Haddad, argues, “Daily life has evolved radically since the last millennium, but there has been no accompanying development in mainstream Muslim legal theory.”

 

Professor Ziauddin Sadar of London wrote in 2002 that that Islamic doctrine is “frozen in time” and there are three doctrinal pillars that need reform: “The elevation of the Shari’ah to the level of the Divine, with the consequent removal of agency from the believers, and the equation of Islam with the State.”

 

Those that argue that the “gates” were never closed include Malcolm Jardine, who wrote a thoroughly-researched essay on the topic. In 2006, the U.S.-based Nawawi Foundation published a study by Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah with the premise that Islam “never had a doorkeeper to close it in the first place.”

 

General El-Sisi and the overall backlash against the Islamists may spark what the world needs most: An Islamic reformation. It is not enough to topple Islamists. Their ideological underpinning must be debated and defeated. The determinations of scholars from 800 years can no longer be treated as eternal truth, but for what they really are—opinions influenced by the times in which they were made.

Manager of Muslim Brotherhood International Investments


Barack & Malik Obama in Oval Office

John R. Houk

© August 28, 2013

 

Malik Obama operates the international investments of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. Guess who Malik’s brother is?

 

VIDEO: Obama’s Brother Linked to Muslim Brotherhood

 

It is obvious that President Barak Hussein Obama was supportive of bringing down longtime ally Hosni Mubarak which led to a close election in Egyptian in which the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party won the Office of President in Egypt. Then President Mohamed Morsi proceeded with actions to make the totality of Sharia Law the law of the land in Egypt. Sharia excited MB adherents then began attacking Coptic Christians and their Churches.

 

In the meantime Morsi neglected Egypt’s economy. The significant amount of secular minded Muslims of Egypt then began a protest similar to that which brought Mubarak down. Obama kept his nose out of internal Egyptian affairs undoubtedly hoping Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood would cool the Sharia stuff and reawaken their social outreach which made the MB popular with Egyptians in the first place. That did not happen. The Egyptian military duly pulled a bloodless coup (which Obama denies) and appointed an interim President until new elections could place another civilian as President.

 

In the meantime MB acolytes have been confronting the pro-military secularist Muslims with violence which included more Coptic Christian murders and Church burnings. This has all the appearance of an Egyptian Civil War. Where does Obama come down on Egyptian turmoil? Obama seems keen to take out dictator Bashar al-Assad of Syria that would probably pave the way for a Sunni Radical Muslim regime in Syria; however Obama has been quite quiet on whether he favors the Pro-American Egyptian military or the anti-American/anti-Israel Muslim Brotherhood adherents.

 

Frankly I see this as a smoking gun support policy of the Obama Administration to Radical Islam’s Muslim Brotherhood. This goes a long way to explaining the allowance of Muslim Brotherhood connected Huma Abedin to continue as a Deputy Chief of Staff while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. Also there is a bit more light on the Obama cover-up of Benghazigate since Ambassador Stevens was in the midst of negotiating weapons to Syrian rebels (dominated by al Qaeda Islamists) but adds mystery to the reasoning of the suspicion that then President Morsi ordered the attack on the Benghazi American annex that resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

 

Here is an article that might explain Obama’s reticence toward a proactive foreign policy toward Egypt.

Irish lawmakers voted to allow abortion in limited circumstances for the first time in the deeply Catholic country’s history Friday, following a bitter debate that saw letters written in blood sent to the country’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny.

 

Under a new bill, doctors will be allowed to end the life of an unborn child if there is a threat to the life of the pregnant woman.

 

Lawmakers passed the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill by a substantial margin — with 127 votes for and 31 against — after a marathon debate began Thursday and ran into Friday morning.

Regarding the Ron Insana Claim that Fed Policy is Great for the Markets

7/20/2013 12:49 PM

 

This is a great read by Bill Fleckenstein regarding the Ron Insana claim that Fed Policy is Great for the markets.

 

Bunk from central bankers

 

History teaches us that the Federal Reserve has been the root cause of our biggest, most harrowing financial problems.

 

http://money.msn.com/bill-fleckenstein/post–bunk-from-central-bankers

 

 

Thus, when I contemplate the damage that will be done by four years (and counting) of quantitative easing, I just shudder at how big the disaster might be — and there is no doubt this experiment will be a disaster.

 

The Fed has expanded its balance sheet to $3.5 trillion, and it now owns more than 20% of outstanding U.S. debt. Either it is going to continue buying bonds forever, which is impossible, or there is going to be a massive dislocation at some moment, because someone else is going to have to buy that debt when the Fed ultimately stops, even if it doesn’t choose to sell anything (and just lets the debt run off).

 

There will be no painless extrication from QE and, as I have said, I don’t believe the Fed will be able to leave ZIRP (zero-percent interest rate policy) willingly.

 

 

More money, more problems

Printing money has never worked. The only questions are how big the consequences are going to be and when they are going to hit. This is as true today as it was 80-plus years ago, when our young central bank made its first forays into monetary mismanagement.

 

While the current mainstream view, with Chairman Ben Bernanke its leading proponent, holds that it is the Fed’s response to the Crash of 1929 that helped worsen and prolong the Great Depression, the fact is that the Fed deserves the blame much earlier. The Fed (even on the gold-bullion standard) actually had a very large role in causing the boom, which got out of control (Bernanke, please note).

 

 

“Domestically and internationally they constantly pumped more credit into the system, and whenever the economy showed signs of flagging they increased the dose. The most notorious occasion was in July 1927, when Strong and (Bank of England Gov. Montagu) Norman held a secret meeting of bankers at the Long Island estates of Ogden Mills, the U.S. Treasury Under-Secretary, and Mrs. Ruth Pratt, the Standard Oil heiress. Strong kept Washington in the dark and refused to let even his most senior colleagues attend. He and Norman decided on another burst of inflation and the protests of (German banker Hjalmar) Schacht and of Charles Rist, Deputy-Governor of the Bank of France, were brushed aside.”

 

 

“ . . . Strong’s last push, in fact, did little to help the ‘real’ economy. It fed speculation. Very little of the new credit went through to the mass-consumer. . . . Strong’s coup de whiskey benefited almost solely the non-wage earners: the last phase of the boom was largely speculative. . . . The 1929 crash exposed in addition the naivety and ignorance of bankers, businessmen, Wall Street experts and academic economists high and low; it showed they did not understand the system they had been so confidently manipulating. They had tried to substitute their own well-meaning policies for what Adam Smith called ‘the invisible hand’ of the market and they had wrought disaster. Far from demonstrating, as Keynes and his school later argued — at the time Keynes failed to predict either the crash or the extent and duration of the Depression — the dangers of a self-regulating economy, the dégringolad indicated quite the opposite: the risks of ill-informed meddling.”

 

The main point to understand is that the “ill-informed meddling” on the part of the Fed in the mid-1920s was infinitesimally small compared with what it has done in the past five years, and the ultimate damage will be correspondingly horrendous.

Another win for Monsanto: US raises allowable levels of company’s pesticide in crops

 

http://rt.com/usa/monsanto-glyphosate-roundup-epa-483/

 

Biotech giant Monsanto has been awarded yet another victory by the federal government thanks to a recent Environmental Protection Agency decision to allow larger traces of the herbicide glyphosate in farm-grown foods.

 

Despite a number of studies linking exposure to the chemical with diseases including types of cancer, the EPA is increasing the amount of glyphosate allowed in oilseed and food crops.

 

The EPA announced their plans on May 1 and allowed critics two months to weigh in and object to the ruling. Following little opposition, though, the EPA is on path to soon approve of levels of glyphosate being found in crops several times over the current concentration.

 

Glyphosate, a weed-killing chemical developed by Monsanto in 1970, is the key ingredient in the company’s “Roundup” label of herbicides. In the decades since, Monsanto has created and patented a number of genetically-modified organisms and genetically-engineered crops resisted to glyphosate that are sold worldwide under the company’s “Roundup Ready” brand. Those GMO products are then planted in fields where glyphosate, namely Roundup, is used en masse to eliminate weeds from taking over harvest. With scientists linking that chemical to cancerous diseases, though, critics decry the EPA decision and caution it could do more harm than good.

 

Through the EPA’s new standards, the amount of allowable glyphosate in oilseed crops such as flax, soybeans and canola will be increased from 20 parts per million (ppm) to 40 ppm, which GM Watch acknowledged is  over 100,000 times the amount needed to induce breast cancer cells. Additionally, the EPA is increasing limits on allowable glyphosate in food crops from 200 ppm to 6,000 ppm.

 

Just last month, The Cornucopia Institute concluded a study by finding glyphosate “exerted proliferative effects in human hormone-dependent breast cancer.” A similar study released in April concluded (READ THE RESTAnother win for Monsanto: US raises allowable levels of company’s pesticide in crops; By Russia Today [RT]; July 23, 2013 17:14 – Edited July 24, 2013 18:12)

Hillary Clinton: Population Control Will Now Become The Centerpiece Of U.S. Foreign Policy

 

http://howtohelpsavetheenvironment.com/archives/hillary-clinton-population-control-will-now-become-the-centerpiece-of-u-s-foreign-policy

 

During remarks that she made for the 15th Anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the launch of a new program that according to Clinton will now become the centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy.  This new program is known as the Global Health Initiative, and it is being incredibly well-funded at a time when the U.S. government is drowning in debt.  According to Clinton, 63 billion dollars will be spent by the U.S. to prevent pregnancies and to improve “family planning” services around the globe over the next six years.  In other words, the new centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy is all about eugenics and population control.

 

The following is an excerpt from Clinton’s remarks….

 

In addition to new funding, we’ve launched a new program that will be the centerpiece of our foreign policy, the Global Health Initiative, which commits us to spending $63 billion over six years to improve global health by investing in efforts to reduce maternal and child mortality, prevent millions of unintended pregnancies, and avert millions of new HIV infections, among other goals. This initiative will employ a new approach to fighting disease and promoting health.

 

You see, whenever the global elite want to launch another new eugenics operation, they announce it as a great “humanitarian program” that will save millions of lives.  But their real goal is to control the population and prevent millions of lives from being born.

 

This was also reflected in Clinton’s remarks about the United Nations Population Fund.  The United Nations Population Fund has been promoting abortion, forced sterilization and radical population control measures around the globe for decades, and Hillary Clinton was super excited to talk about how the U.S. government recently renewed funding for (READ THE RESTHillary Clinton: Population Control Will Now Become The Centerpiece Of U.S. Foreign Policy; By Michael; Save The Environment; February 1st, 2010)

Population Control

 

Possibly one of the most heinous of Bill Clinton’s foreign policies dealt with population control. World Population Organizations were requiring that Third World countries accept their population control agenda in order to qualify for financial assistance. The United Nations, International Planned Parenthood Federation, World Health Organization, U.S. Aid, World Bank, and other population control groups used hundreds of millions of U.S. tax dollars to kill babies around the world in the effort of controlling the population and to advance the depopulation agenda of The Club of Rome.

 

They have stated the priorities of their common agenda:

 

·         Generalize worldwide sex education among youth.

 

·         World wide (sic) legalization of abortion.

 

·         World legalization of sterilization.

 

Abortion as Family Planning

Pro-abortion groups do not admit to promoting abortion “as a method of family planning.” Rather, they say they promote legalization of abortion and/or provide abortion to protect women’s health from illegal abortion, or as a “contraceptive backup,” or because it is necessary to bring about equal status of women in society, etc.

 

 

United Nations Conference on Population and Development

A Special Report EIR (Executive Intelligence Review) March 10, 1981, reported a Club of Rome planning apparatus operating outside the control of the White House whose sole purpose is to reduce the world’s population by 2 billion people through war, famine, disease and any other means necessary. The targeting agency for the operation is the National Security Council’s Ad Hoc Group on Population Policy. Its policy-planning group is in the U.S. State Department’s Office of Population Affairs, established in 1975 by Henry Kissinger.

The Clinton administration perceived an “approaching disaster” of world overpopulation. The problem, as they see it, is human beings – far too many human beings. They think the world is awash in babies. To remedy this problem, Vice President Al Gore and U.S. Undersecretary of State Tim Wirth led an American delegation of 45 members to the United Nations Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, Egypt, September 5-13, 1994.

BIG Government is all about Control and look what control in history has solved

7/1/2013 10:00 AM

 

This is a 1979 plan to control Population growth in the world and we can for sure see the similarities in what is going on today:

 

Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars

http://www.lawfulpath.com/ref/sw4qw/#forty

 

The silver value is stable, it being possible to buy the same amount with a gram of silver today as it could be bought in 1920. Human value measured in silver units changes slightly due to changes in production technology.

 

Enforcement

 

Factor I

 

As in every social system approach, stability is achieved only by understanding and accounting for human nature (action/reaction patterns). A failure to do so can be, and usually is, disastrous.

 

As in other human social schemes, one form or another of intimidation (or incentive) is essential to the success of the draft. Physical principles of action and reaction must be applied to both internal and external subsystems.

 

To secure the draft, individual brainwashing/programming and both the family unit and the peer group must be engaged and brought under control.

 

Factor II – Father

 

The man of the household must be housebroken to ensure that junior will grow up with the right social training and attitudes. The advertising media, etc., are engaged to see to it that father-to-be is pussy-whipped before or by the time he is married. He is taught that he either conforms to the social notch cut out for him or his sex life will be hobbled and his tender companionship will be zero. He is made to see that women demand security more than logical, principled, or honorable behavior.

 

By the time his son must go to war, father (with jelly for a backbone) will slam a gun into junior’s hand before father will risk the censure of his peers, or make a hypocrite of himself by crossing the investment he has in his own personal opinion or self-esteem. Junior will go to war or father will be embarrassed. So junior will go to war, the true purpose not withstanding (sic).

 

Factor III – Mother

 

The female element of human society is ruled by emotion first and logic second. In the battle between logic and imagination, imagination always wins, fantasy prevails, maternal instinct dominates so that the child comes first and the future comes second. A woman with a newborn baby is too starry-eyed to see a wealthy man’s cannon fodder or a cheap source of slave labor. A woman must, however, be conditioned to accept the transition to “reality” when it comes, or sooner.

 

As the transition becomes more difficult to manage, the family unit must be carefully disintegrated, and state-controlled public education and state-operated child-care centers must be become more common and legally enforced so as to begin the detachment of the child from the mother and father at an earlier age. Inoculation of behavioral drugs [Ritalin] can speed the transition for the child (mandatory). Caution: A woman’s impulsive anger can override her fear. An irate woman’s power must never be underestimated, and her power over a pussy-whipped husband must likewise never be underestimated. It got women the vote in 1920.

 

Factor IV – Junior

 

The emotional pressure for self-preservation during the time of war and the self-serving attitude of the common herd that have an option to avoid the battlefield – if junior can be persuaded to go – is all of the pressure finally necessary to propel Johnny off to war. Their quiet blackmailings of him are the threats: “No sacrifice, no friends; no glory, no girlfriends.”

 

Factor V – Sister

 

And what about junior’s sister? She is given all the good things of life by her father, and taught to expect the same from her future husband regardless of the price.

 

Factor VI – Cattle

 

Those who will not use their brains are no better off than those who have no brains, and so this mindless school of jelly-fish, father, mother, son, and daughter, become useful beasts of burden or trainers of the same.

 

This concludes what is available of this document. (Full post of “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars”)

STATISTICS OF DEMOCIDE:

 

Genocide and Mass Murder Since 1900

http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/NOTE5.HTM

 

In the associated volume, Death by Government [1], I described fourteen cases in which since 1900 a regime murdered or is suspected of murdering over 1,000,000 subjects and foreigners. Four of these regimes, the Soviet Union, communist China, Nationalist China, and Nazi Germany, each killed 10,000,000 or more unarmed and helpless men, women, and children.

 

I also gave some descriptive statistics on these and all 204 other cases of democide (genocide, politicide, massacres, extrajudicial executions, and other forms of mass murder) by state and quasi-state regimes, and non-state groups. These revealed democide’s incredible magnitude in this century and well showed the close relationship between the extent of a regime’s totalitarian power, or Power in short, and democide. My conclusion was that Power kills, absolute Power kills absolutely.

Ironclad: Egypt Involved in Benghazi Attacks

By Walid Shoebat, Ben Barrack and Keith Davies

June 30, 2013

 

A Libyan intelligence document has been produced that directly implicates Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Mursi in the attacks on American installations in Benghazi on 9/11/12. Those who attempt to discredit this document run into trouble when it is coupled with real-time video we uncovered on 9/13/12. In that video, gunmen at the scene of the attack can be heard declaring that they were sent by Mursi.

 

After weeks of attempting to push the narrative that a video was responsible, the Obama administration ultimately had to concede that the attacks in Benghazi were terrorist in nature. A few months after 9/11/12, the top lawyer for the Pentagon stated that the war on terror should be waged by “law enforcement and intelligence agencies”.

 

Based on the Obama administration’s standard, the Benghazi attacks should be treated as a crime instead of as an act of war. Therefore, let us bring forth the evidence, which implicates the leader of a nation state (Egypt) in the attack and warrants a grand jury (House of Representatives) investigation to decide if administration officials should be indicted (impeached).

 

Since we’re deciding who to indict, we must look at evidence of involvement in the attack. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President – Mohammed Mursi – is a good place to start. Our first two exhibits are both damning but when taken together, may just constitute a ‘smoking gun’. EXHIBIT A is a video shot from a cell phone at the scene of … (READ THE REST)

If anyone has the guts in Congress to investigate Barack Hussein Obama concerning the numerous scandals that will divulge illegal activities, there are other reasons to get rid of Obama for just bad management that is not unconstitutional. Perhaps it is time to Amend the Constitution to place a No-Confidence vote into the House of Representatives with repercussions that limit the Office of President’s Executive Power until the House is satisfied there is enough confidence in the Office to perform his/her job.

Obama’s war of ideas

 

By Caroline Glick

June 28, 2013, 3:15 AM

CarolineGlick.com

 

US foreign policy is failing worldwide.

 

The Russian and Chinese embrace of indicted traitor Edward Snowden is just the latest demonstration of the contempt in which the US is held by an ever increasing number of adversarial states around the world.

 

Iran has also gotten a piece of the action.

 

As part of the regime’s bread and circuses approach to its subjects, supreme dictator Ali Khamenei had pretend reformer Hassan Rohani win the presidential election in a landslide two weeks ago. Rohani has a long record of advancing Iran’s nuclear program, both as a national security chief and as a senior nuclear negotiator. He also has a record of deep involvement in acts of mass terror, including the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people and wounded hundreds.

 

Yet rather than distance itself from Rohani the phony, the Obama administration has celebrated Iranian democracy and embraced him as a reformer. Obama’s spokesmen say they look forward to renewing nuclear talks with Rohani, and so made clear – yet again – that the US has no intention of preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear power.

 

Rohani responded to the administration’s embrace by stating outright he will not suspend Iran’s nuclear enrichment activities. In other words, so great is Iran’s contempt for President Barack Obama and his administration, that it didn’t even pay lip service to the notion of cutting a deal.

 

And that makes sense. Obama only has one card he is willing to play with Iran: appeasement. And so that is the card he plays. His allies are already talking about containing a nuclear Iran. But that’s not an option.

 

A government’s ability to employ a strategy of nuclear containment is entirely dependent on the credibility of its nuclear threats. Obama is slashing the US nuclear arsenal, and Snowden reportedly just gave the Russians and the Chinese the US’s revised nuclear war plans. Obama has no credibility in nuclear games of chicken. He has no chance of containing Khamenei and his apocalyptic jihad state.

 

Iran, its Russian ally and its Lebanese Hezbollah proxy now have the upper hand in the Syrian civil war. In large part due to Obama’s foreign policy, the war is spilling into Lebanon and threatening Jordan and Iraq – not to mention Israel. In response to this state of affairs, Obama has decided to begin arming the al-Qaida-dominated Syrian opposition forces. Now it’s true, Obama is planning to transfer US arms to the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army that is recognized by the US. But that is no reason not to worry.

 

The Free Syrian Army is dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood. It condemned the US’s decision to designate the Syrian al-Qaida affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra, a foreign terrorist organization. FSA fighters and commanders regularly collaborate with (and sometimes fight) Al-Nusra. At a minimum, there is no reason to believe that these US arms will not be used in conjunction with al-Qaida forces in Syria.

 

In truth, there is little reason from a US perspective to view a Syria dominated by any of the warring parties – including the FSA – as amenable to US interests or values. There is no ideological distinction between the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood and those of al-Qaida, or Hamas or a dozen other jihadist armed groups that were formed by Muslim Brotherhood members. Like Iran and its proxies, they all want to see Western civilization – led by the US – destroyed. And yes, they all want to destroy Israel, and Europe.

 

But for the Obama administration, this ideological affinity is not relevant.

 

The only distinction they care about is whether a group just indoctrinates people to become jihadists, or whether they are actively engaged – at this minute – in plotting or carrying out terrorist attacks against the US. And even then, there are exceptions.

 

For instance, the Taliban are actively waging war against the US in Afghanistan. But since the Obama administration has no will to defeat the Taliban, it is begging them to negotiate with US officials.

 

Obama’s default position in the Muslim world is to support the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is the wellspring of the Sunni jihadist movement. And Obama is the Brotherhood’s greatest ally. He facilitated the Brotherhood’s rise to power in Egypt, at the expense of the US’s most important Arab ally, Hosni Mubarak.

 

He even supported them at the expense of American citizens employed in Egypt by US government-supported NGOs. Forty-three Americans were arrested for promoting democracy, and all the administration would do was facilitate their escape from Egypt. Robert Becker, the one US aid worker who refused to flee, was abandoned by the State Department. He just escaped from Egypt after being sentenced to two years in prison.

 

The Obama administration supports the Morsi government even as it persecutes Christians. It supports the Muslim Brotherhood even though the government has demonstrated economic and administrative incompetence, driving Egypt into failed state status. Egypt is down to its last few cans of fuel. It is facing the specter of mass starvation. And law and order have already broken down entirely. It has lost the support of large swathes of the public. But still Obama maintains faith.

 

Then there are the Palestinians.

 

John Kerry is knocking on our door again this week in an obsessive effort to restart the mordant phony peace process. For its part, as The Jerusalem Post’s Khaled Abu Toameh reported this week, the supposedly moderate Fatah-ruled Palestinian Authority has adopted a policy of denying Jews entrance to PA-ruled areas. Jewish reporters – Israeli and non-Israeli – are barred from covering the PA or speaking with Fatah and PA officials.

 

Jewish diplomats are barred from speaking to PA officials or joining the entourage of diplomats who speak with them. Jewish businessmen are barred from doing business in the PA.

 

As for the radical Hamas terror group that rules Gaza, this week Hamas again reiterated its loyalty to its covenant which calls for the obliteration of Israel and the annihilation of world Jewry.

 

But Kerry is coming back because he’s convinced that the reason there’s no peace process is that Israelis are too rich, and too happy, and too stingy, and too suspicious, and too lacking in empathy for the Palestinians who continue to teach their children to murder our children.

 

You might think that this pile-on of fiascos would lead Obama and his advisers to reconsider their behavior.

 

But you’d be wrong. If Obama were asked his opinion of his foreign policy he would respond with absolute conviction that his foreign policy is a total success – everywhere. And by his own metrics, he’d be right.

 

Obama is a man of ideas. And he has surrounded himself with men and women who share his ideas. For Obama and his advisers, what matters are not the facts, but the theoretical assumptions – the ideas – that determine their policies. If they like an idea, if they find it ideologically attractive, then they base their policies on it. Consequences and observable reality are no match for their ideas. To serve their ideas, reality can be deliberately distorted. Facts can be ignored, or denied.

 

Obama has two ideas that inform his Middle East policy. First, the Muslim Brotherhood is good. And so his policy is to support the Muslim Brotherhood, everywhere. That’s his idea, and as long as the US continues to support the Brotherhood, its foreign policy is successful. For Obama it doesn’t matter whether the policy is harmful to US national security. It doesn’t matter if the Brotherhood slaughters Christians and Shi’ites and persecutes women and girls. It doesn’t matter if the Brotherhood’s governing incompetence transforms Egypt – and Tunisia, and Libya and etc., into hell on earth. As far as Obama is concerned, as long as he is true to his idea, his foreign policy is a success.

 

Obama’s second idea is that the root cause of all the problems in the region is the absence of a Palestinian state on land Israel controls. And as a consequence, Israel is to blame for everything bad that happens because it is refusing to give in to all of the Palestinians’ demands.

 

Stemming from this view, the administration can accept a nuclear Iran. After all, if Israel is to blame for everything, then Iran isn’t a threat to America.

 

This is why Fatah terrorism, incitement and anti-Semitism are ignored.

 

This is why Hamas’s Deputy Foreign Minister Ghazi Hamad reported that he met with senior US officials two weeks ago.

 

This is why Kerry is coming back to pressure the rich, stingy, paranoid, selfish Jews into making massive concessions to the irrelevant Palestinians.

 

Obama’s satisfaction with his foreign policy is demonstrated by the fact that he keeps appointing like-minded ideologues to key positions.

 

This week it was reported that Kerry is set to appoint Robert Malley to serve as deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs. Malley has built his career out of advancing the ideas Obama embraces.

 

In 2001, Malley authored an article in The New York Times where he blamed Israel for the failure of the Camp David peace summit in July 2000. At that summit, Israel offered the Palestinians nearly everything they demanded. Not only did Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat refuse the offer. He refused to make a counteroffer.

 

Instead he went home and ordered his deputies to prepare to initiate the terror war against Israel which he started two months later.

 

As Lee Smith wrote in a profile of Malley in Tablet in 2010, Malley’s article, and subsequent ones, “created a viable interpretative framework for continuing to blame both sides for the collapse of the peace process even after the outbreak of the second intifada. If both sides were at fault, then it would be possible to resume negotiations once things calmed down. If, on the other hand, the sticking point was actually about existential issues – the refusal to accept a Jewish state – and the inability, or unwillingness, of the Palestinians to give up the right of Arab refugees to return to their pre- 1948 places of residence, then Washington would have been compelled to abandon the peace process after Clinton left office.”

 

In other words, Malley shared the idea that Israel was to blame for the pathologies of the Arabs. Stemming from this view, Malley has been meeting with Hamas terrorists for years. He belittled the threat posed by a nuclear Iran and accused Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of exaggerating the Iranian nuclear threat to divert attention away from the Palestinians. He has also met with Hezbollah, and has been an outspoken supporter of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

 

AFTER THE September 11 attacks, the US pledged to wage a war of ideas in the Muslim world. And in Obama’s foreign policy, we have such a war of ideas.

 

The only problem is that all of his ideas are wrong.
