January 14th, 2015 • Muslim enclaves that are hostile to surrounding communities are springing up across America. Funded by Pakistani radicals, 22 villages in 9 states have been established that are teaching terrorist tactics to members of their compounds.
 
The above video is an interview between Brian Kilmeade and Martin Mawyer of the Christian Action Network. On The Kelly File last night Martin Mawyer was on with sub-host Shannon Bream showing nearly the exact footage of a Christian Action Network expose of Muslim terrorist enclaves operating apparently indiscriminately in U.S. soil. I say “apparently” because the FBI and Homeland Security are acting as if their hands are tied because of the First Amendment rights of Free Speech, Religious Freedom and I’m guessing free assembly. That sounds like a lame excuse especially with so-called lone-wolf terrorist attacks on our soil and let’s use the Charlie Hebdo example of organized terrorism that three terrorists had given  credit al Qaeda and ISIS.
 
No-Go-Zones are a common place occurrence in Europe (including the UK – Emerson apologizes too soon) but especially in France. As an American you may be out of the loop concerning No-Go-Zones (NGZ). As it relates to Islam, a NGZ is an area in a non-Muslim nation in which Muslims are so dominant that a Non-Muslim is prohibited from entry due local restriction or outright fear of Muslim attack. In case you haven’t realized it there are NGZs in the USA; however unlike Europe where Muslims find an urban area to overtake, Muslims in America develop NGZs in rural or out of the way locations. The Martin Mawyer video clips demonstrate the ruralness of NGZs.
 
There are some notable urban areas in the USA in which Muslim immigrants and next-gen Muslim-Americans have begun asserting of a NGZ mentality. The most noted place in my mind is Dearborn (suburb of Detroit), Michigan.

Read full story of stoning here: American Muslims Stone ChristiansIf this extremely disturbing video does not result in a Federal investigation into the human rights violations of those Christians physically attacked at the 2012 Dearborn Arab Festival then we are watching the beginning of a new America, a MUSLIM AMERICA.

In this new America, a MUSLIM AMERICA, shariah-compliant Muslims have succeeded in striking fear into the hearts of the infidels. In the case of the Dearborn Arab Festival, you will see that the infidels are NOT the few, brave Christians who withstood the physical attacks by the blood-thirsty Muslims, but the fearful are those who have taken an oath to protect Americans. The fearful, are the Dearborn Sheriff and Police. Sadly, you will see the Police fearful of confronting the criminals and enforcing the law as they stand by watching “Muslims Gone Wild,” attack the helpless Christians.

The United West predicts that success of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt combined with the mounting fury of the “Arab Spring,” coupled with the support of President Obama will result in an expansive, “strong-horse” onslaught of Muslim physical aggression, similar to this Dearborn disaster, all across the new, MUSLIM AMERICA.

 
Our glorious President Barack Hussein Obama has allowed massive immigration of Muslims from volatile Muslim nations with the predilection to embrace radicalism. America is a nation in which immigrants have us the great melting pot of the world with the best constitutional government that has existed to date. Multicultural Leftist thinking often reminds Conservatives of the USA’s history of immigration but blatantly neglect the “melting pot” element of immigration. America’s Left has spent decades warping the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution. This is particularly the case with the First Amendment.
 
The thing is in America the First Amendment does not give a right to plan or execute violence in the name of Free Speech nor Religious Freedom. When there is any kind of assembly in which the topic is to plan violence or do acts of violence, it is specifically prohibited by the First Amendment. The First Amendment attaches “assembly” with “peaceable”. Muslim enclaves, Leftist political terrorist cells (Weather Underground, SLA, ELF, Black Panther Party, NBPP and etc.), the extreme Right Wing (e.g. KKK, Aryan Nation, White Supremacists in general, violent Nazi organizations [although Right Wing is a misnomer with Hitler’s Nazism]) or whatever political or religious (American Islamic organizations associated with Muslim Brotherhood, Wahhabist or Salafist violence; Phineas Priesthood, Army of God and Christian Identity terrorism in general) organizations that are violent by the nature of their advocacy is not – or at least should not – be protected by the First Amendment.
 
The No-Go-Zone phenomena that has already infected Europe will increase in the USA largely due to the Islamic Culture friendly President BHO. I found an editorial on Right Wing News that places in perspective allowing Muslim immigrants into America that have no intention of following the melting pot assimilation paradigm that has made us the most coveted nation to live at in the world:
 
No-go areas are a frightening aspect of the ongoing Islamic conquest of Europe. Local authorities have ceded control of these to Muslims, who live by their own laws and sneer at those of the country they have invaded. Welfare payments go into the no-go areas; nothing except violence comes out. Emergency vehicles require police escorts, as they are often attacked by hostile savages.
 
Europe has a much larger Muslim population than the USA. But already we have no-go areas too:
 
 
There goes the neighborhood.
 
In the U.S., Dearborn, Michigan: Over 100,000 Muslims, 45% of the city has settled into their first ‘no-go’ zone. The city and police officials have been sued in many cases that allege discrimination “against Christians” effectively by the authorities applying Sharia law. Dearborn-Dar-al-Islam, (a place governed by Islamic Sharia law). …
 
If Americans don’t wake up and get their heads out of the sand fast, what’s quickly overtaking Europe will consume the United States. Muslim religious beliefs do not supersede state and federal laws; the Constitution is the law of the land. And yet, we are being invaded, and nothing is being done to stop them.
 
On the contrary, the federal government is aggressively promoting Islamic colonization. The Obama Regime imported nearly 300,000 colonists from Muslim countries in 2013 alone.
 
Unless reversed decisively, this immigration jihad will inevitably lead to more violence inflicted by the so-called Religion of Peace. (Muslim No-Go Zones in the USA; By Dave Blount; Right Wing News; 1/13/15)

21st Century Problem of Islam in the West


Burka or Lady Liberty

John R. Houk

Counterjihad writers and pundits connected to Europe have been trying to get Europeans to wake-up for about a decade about the dangers that Islamic culture threatening Western culture as it has evolved leaning upon voters having the ability to influence politics.

 

Western culture began a slant toward a democratic-socialist paradigm emphasizing diverse multiculturalism in the days after WWII. Honestly the diverse multicultural paradigm probably made great sense to the post WWII Europe. After all, Adolf Hitler tried to impose a singular culture of a German Master race on a Europe that was quite multilingual. What better way to head of potential dominating European leader to yet once again make an effort to conquer all Europe than to promote multicultural acceptance among Europeans. I have no doubts that the evolving European Union is a part of a process to bind all Europeans regardless of their linguistic backgrounds to collectively join each other as a united political people by democratic consensus. For such a consensus to take root a common thread must take root among the multiple lingual groups of Europe. It appears to me that consensus solidified via a paradigm Europeans could agree upon. The collective paradigm that has won over European voters over the years was an egalitarian Socialist-Egalitarianism in which people became connected to generous governments that would take care of a European’s social needs such as medicine, employment, welfare, and so on. The thing about this paradigm is that someone had to pay for it.

 

America’s willingness to build Europe back after WWII as a geopolitical strategy to gain a partner to combat the Soviet-Communist agenda of a Marxist Empire ruled from Moscow. The American commitment to take on the initial bankrolling of strategic military alliances for European defense freed money up to be invested into the Socialist-Egalitarian top-down general welfare of European citizens. Then the European governments taxed their citizens to the hilt. Europeans did not care, that is how much the democratic socialist paradigm is still attractive to European voters.

 

Unfortunately for Europe there was a horrible side-affect to embracing multicultural diversity as a social egalitarian paradigm. Non-European immigrants began to flow into Europe even as many European governments have united under a limited confederated union that is the European Union. That union of nations has brought about economic advantages even in developing a single monetary unit that is known as Euros. For many European nations the Euro became the singular currency replacing traditional national currencies. The horrible side-affect was the flow of Islamic people from Africa and the Middle East that were and are intolerant of the European culture. Multicultural diversity acceptance enabled Muslims to hold on to many of their Islamic concepts which are diametrically opposed to concepts of Religious Freedom outside of Islam and opposed to concepts of Free Speech that promotes another religion or ideology that are deemed insulting to Islam.

 

Under the imperative of cultural acceptance to find a common ground was and is a non-starter among religious Muslims. Islamic writings considered holy do not say nice things about non-Muslims. That means secular-minded Europeans (most Europeans have abandoned the practice of their Christian religious heritage) will insult Muslims with lifestyles that are blatantly immoral in Islam. Americans are still Christian enough there are immoral practices that should be frowned upon; e.g. adultery, rape, theft, murder, fornication (sex without marriage) and more. The multicultural paradigm has infected American culture enough that immoral acts such as adultery, fornication, pornography, homosexual lifestyles and so on are not considered heinous anymore. In Islam these kinds of immoral practices are worthy of death.

 

Socialist-minded European elites decided to look the other way to the intolerance of Islam probably believing they were doing Muslim immigrants a multicultural favor by enabling a better economic life and freedom from dictatorships prevalent among Africa and the Middle East. Most Muslims in Europe have eschewed any form of assimilation into their host nations. Here we are in the 21st century and immigrants are still flowing into Europe coupled now with earlier Muslim immigrants producing second and third generation religious Muslims that adhere to the intolerant nature of Islam.

 

Only now some Europeans are waking up that Islam and European culture are not compatible. The real risk in the minds of European elites is that pre-WWII Europeans began to blame a culture they deemed foreign to their Euro-Christian heritage. As a horrible economic depression began to hit Europe (like it did in America), those minority of Europeans began to look for a scapegoat to their ill fortunes being experienced during European depression. Incidentally the parts of Europe most affected to by depression were the losers of WWI who were punished to the hilt with war reparations. The principle nation of that punishment was Germany. Germans became desperate economically. People like Adolf Hitler became popular among Germans because the Jew-hatred spouted by Nazis seemed to offer an explanation to many for the economic pain people were feeling. Hitler’s antisemitism really infected Germany but it also had an effect on Europeans and Americans. If you got to look for a scapegoat the Jews always fit the bill historically in Europe and by extension even to the relatively new American republic. You might be surprised to know that one of change-makers in American lifestyle in Henry Ford was a huge antisemite and at least showed an early affection for Nazism at least until it became apparent Hitler’s bottom line would affect the Ford Motor Company’s bottom line.

 

European elites are facing a similar dilemma with Muslims in Europe. As Europeans begin to wake-up about Islamic intolerance Europeans are beginning to get fed up with Muslims are establishing Muslim-Only zones in many major European cities and are committing criminal acts often associated with Islamic intolerance.

 

The dilemma for European elites is that they are covering-up Muslim crimes hoping that anti-Muslim retribution will not emerge in a violent way that Jews experienced in Pre-WWII Europe. The problem that European elites should regard is Jewish citizens in the various European nations before WWI were pretty much assimilated into European culture. European Jews were more secular than they were observant. That is not the case for Muslims in Europe today. The intolerance of Islamic theo-political religion has led to a refusal of assimilation by the majority of Muslims. For pre-WWII European Jews assimilation was the norm and strict religious observance was a small minority. AND the observant religious Jews had absolutely NO desire to force non-Jews to convert to Judaism in pre-WWII or even now for that matter. The imperative of Islam according to their holy writings and religious commentators has been to offer the non-Muslim peaceful conversion, absolute submission to Islamic Supremacy or face death for insulting Islam.

 

TODAY one can see that is a problem in Europe. If American Dem Party Leftists continue to promote European concepts of multicultural diversity, the same problem will be here among us. Muslim conclaves are already emerging in the USA in which Christians utilizing their Constitutional right of Religious Freedom and Free Speech to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ are experiencing violence or even jail (Dearborn, MI).

 

Hopefully American voters will wake-up to the Islamic incompatibility to America’s Constitution and take a stand against giving Muslims special rights forcing Americans to give up their First Amendment. The problem Americans already face is the Religious Freedom is such a passionate issue in America that most take the stand that, “We disagree with Islam but those folks have the Constitutional right to freely practice their faith.”

 

Currently America is not facing a multicultural problem as in Europe. America’s future problem with Islam will be the dilemma between Religious Freedom being constitutionally sacrosanct and observant Islam being systemically anti-U.S. Constitution. How do we address that dilemma?

Gang Raping, “I Love Al-Qaeda” and Who Is Advancing Islam?
A Month of Islam in Europe: April 2014

The American Embassy in Prague is financing a new project aimed at promoting Islam in public elementary and secondary schools across the Czech Republic.

 

The new law removes the requirement that there must be a special reason to sue for defamation or insult. Swedish thought police will be able to prosecute anyone who expresses an opinion about Muslim immigration and much else if that opinion is deemed to be defamation or slander. The Swedish government is also spending 60 million krona ($9 million) to boost voter turnout in Muslim neighborhoods.

 

“The influx of immigrants is reaching biblical proportions. Italy is fighting a losing battle.” — Admiral Giuseppe De Giorgi, Head of the Italian Navy

 

In Austria, police say they believe that two teenage girls who vanished from their homes in the capital of Vienna on April 10 may be in Turkey, and that whoever helped them get there is using them as pin-up girls to boost recruitment efforts for the “holy war” in Syria.

 

Friends of Samra Kesinovic, 16, and Sabina Selimovic, 15, said the girls had become radicalized after attending a local mosque run by a Salafist preacher, Ebu Tejma, and learning about the duty of every Muslim to participate in jihad. The girls were expelled from school after inscribing “I Love Al-Qaeda” on tables and walls.

 

But the girls’ parents—originally Bosnian refugees who settled in Austria after the ethnic conflicts of the 1990s—say that messages and photographs posted on social media networks which claim that the girls are on the front line and fighting with their new husbands are fake.

 

In a possible break in the case, Austrian police say they traced a phone call Samra made to her sister in late April to a landline based in Turkey. The search for the girls continues.

 

At least 100 Austrian citizens or residents have participated in the fighting in Syria, according to Austrian media. Approximately 40 of them are currently on the front lines, 44 have already returned to Austria and 19 have been killed in action.

 

Also in April, the most senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood living in exile in Britain, Ibrahim Munir, denied claims that the group was moving its international headquarters from London to the Austrian city of Graz. The Daily Mail, a British newspaper, reported on April 12 that the Muslim Brotherhood was preparing to move its headquarters to Austria in an “apparent attempt to avoid an inquiry into its activities set up by the Prime Minister.”

 

The group was expelled from Egypt after a counter-revolution there in July 2013, and recently opened a new headquarters above a kebab shop in London. On April 1, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced an investigation of the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities in Britain.

 

A full summary of Islam in Britain during the month of April can be found here.

 

In the Czech Republic, police on April 25 raided the headquarters of Prague’s Islamic Foundation in the center of the capital and a mosque on the outskirts of the city. Police arrested 20 people, including the Czech translator and publisher of a book about Islamic theology that security officials said promotes hate speech and incites hatred toward Jews.

 

The book—”The Fundamentals of Tawheed” [Islamic monotheism] by Bilal Philips, a Jamaican-born, Qatar-based Muslim extremist who has been banned from entering Britain and Germany—was being used, police said, to spread Salafist ideology in the Czech Republic.

 

Also in April, it emerged that the American embassy in Prague is financing a new project aimed at promoting Islam in public elementary and secondary schools across the Czech Republic.

 

In Denmark, police in Copenhagen on April 25 said the man they believe tried to assassinate the Danish journalist Lars Hedegaard in February 2013 was arrested in Istanbul’s Atatürk airport as he tried to enter Turkey on a false passport. The man, identified only by the initials B.H., is awaiting extradition—a process that could take three months—in a high-security prison in the city’s Maltepe district.

 

Danish police say the suspect is a 26-year-old Danish citizen of Lebanese—possibly Palestinian—origin. At the time of his arrest, he was in possession of a fake passport. He left Denmark on the same day of the assassination attempt, police said, and has been traveling between Syria, Lebanon and Turkey ever since.

 

In Finland, the Parliament’s Constitutional Law Committee on April 4 ruled that the long-standing tradition of singing a summer hymn known as the “Suvivirsi” at end-of-school ceremonies can continue. In March, Deputy Chancellor of Justice Mikko Puumalainen had called on the Board of Education to look into the matter because the song has Christian overtones and could be offensive to the country’s growing Muslim community.

 

“It’s curious that the minority can so strongly influence the activities of the majority,” said Education Chancellor Pekka Iivonen. “Laws concerning religious freedom work both ways: in addition to having the right not practice religion, we also have the right to practice religion in Finland, where the majority of people belong to the Lutheran church.”

 

In France, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve on April 23 presented a new anti-radicalization plan aimed at preventing French citizens or residents from waging jihad in Syria and other Muslim conflict zones. The strategy includes more than 20 measures aimed not only at preventing French citizens from joining the war in Syria, but also at combatting the radicalization of young French Muslims during the earliest stages of indoctrination.

 

On April 22, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told RTL Radio that nearly 500 French citizens or residents are believed to have joined the fighting in Syria. “This is a very big subject,” Fabius said. “Now more and more young people are going [to Syria] … Our plan is to tackle this upstream [at the source] and all the way downstream. We will identify young people caught on this tragic path. We will monitor this online, and then we must stop them from crossing the Syrian border, and monitor their return and reintegration.”

 

Some believe the plan is a political ploy by French President François Hollande aimed at blunting the rising popularity of the anti-immigration National Front party, which captured a record number of city council seats and mayorships in local elections in March.

 

National Front party leader Marine Le Pen told RTL Radio that the government’s plan to fight French jihadists is cosmetic. “It does not attack the root of the problem—the speech in some mosques that are genuine calls to jihad,” she said. “Nor does the plan attack recruiters and funding from foreign countries known to support terrorist fundamentalism, such as Qatar.”

 

Le Pen also said it might be necessary to create a new law on mercenaries that would 1) prohibit those who have French nationality from engaging in fighting abroad; and 2) revoke French nationality from individuals convicted of participating in this type of fighting.

 

A confidential intelligence document leaked to the French newspaper Le Figaro says a form of Muslim ghettoization is gaining ground within the French school system. The report says that Muslim students are effectively establishing an Islamic parallel society completely cut off from non-Muslim students.

 

The 15-page document, dated November 28, 2013, includes 70 examples—headscarves in school playgrounds, halal meals in cafeterias, chronic absenteeism during Muslim religious festivals, clandestine prayers in gyms or hallways—of the Islamizing trend in schools throughout France.

 

The document says that Muslims are engaged in a “war of attrition” aimed at “destabilizing the teaching staff.” It adds that Muslim fundamentalists are circumventing the law that bans religious symbols in schools, and that self-proclaimed “young guardians of orthodoxy” in many schools are exerting pressure on Muslim girls.

 

“During the Muslim holidays, especially during the Eid-el-Kebir [Eid el-Adha], classes are abandoned by students,” with absenteeism bordering 90% in certain parts of Nîmes and Toulouse. A high school principal in a northern district of Marseille said that some of his pupils pray with such zeal that their foreheads bear bruises.

 

In Évry, a commune in the southern suburbs of Paris, police arrested four Muslim boys (three Turkish brothers between the ages of 13 and 15, and one 17-year-old from Morocco) for gang raping an 18-year-old woman as she left the main train station. During police questioning, the minors said they attacked the woman simply because she was French and “the French are all sons of whores.”

 

The boys were jailed for rape and—unusually in France—reverse racism. Three of the minors have previously been jailed for rape and robbery, but only six months ago they were released early as part of a government plan to go easy on minors.

 

One French commentator asks: “Where did their hatred come from? The hatred that drove them to engage in unspeakable acts on a young girl, barely older than themselves, who symbolized their host country? What will I report? Unemployment? Poverty? Inequality?”

 

In Paris, the 31st congress of the Union of Islamic Organizations in France (UOIF) was turned into a platform for Muslim anti-Semitism when keynote speaker Hani Ramadan—a prominent Muslim leader from Geneva—blamed Jews and Zionism for a litany of maladies in France, Iraq, Rwanda, Syria and Central Africa. “All the evil in the world originates from the Jews who have only one thing in mind, realizing the dream of Greater Israel,” the French daily Le Figaro quoted him as saying.

 

Ramadan said the media and politics are controlled by Zionists. “In the United States, no one can be elected president without having to kowtow to AIPAC,” he said. “It is the same in France, where no one can be elected without the approval of the CRIF [an umbrella group of French Jewish organizations], which in fact leads in the shadows. Against these international schemes of the Zionist power there is only one rampart: Islam.”

 

Hani Ramadan is the director of the Islamic Center of Geneva and is a brother of Tariq Ramadan, a Swiss professor banned from entering the United States. The UOIF congress, held from April 18-21 this year, is one of France’s largest and most prominent Islamic events.

 

In Germany, the interior ministry on April 8 said it had outlawed the charity “Waisenkinderprojekt Libanon” [Orphan Project Lebanon] for allegedly raising millions of euros for Hezbollah. The group, based in the city of Essen, collected €3.3 million ($4.6 million) in donations between 2007 and 2013 for the Lebanese Shahid [Martyrs] Foundation, an “integral” part of Hezbollah. The interior ministry said the funds were used to recruit fighters “to combat Israel, also with terrorist measures” and to compensate the families of suicide bombers.

 

Also in April, it was reported that the 39-year-old German rapper Deso Dogg (born Denis Cuspert), operating under the alias “Abu Talha Al-Almani” [Abu Talha the German], was killed on April 20 as a result of infighting among jihadi groups battling in Syria.

 

Deso Dogg—the son of a Ghanaian father and German mother, and raised by an American stepfather—abandoned his rapping career and converted to hardline Salafism in 2010 after nearly being killed in a car crash. Soon after his conversion, he began recording nasheeds [traditional Islamic devotional music] in German, praising Osama Bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Omar. Deso Dogg’s nasheeds inspired Arid Uka, an Albanian-German Islamist, who killed two U.S. airmen and seriously wounded two others at the Frankfurt airport in March 2011.

 

After Deso Dogg became a cult figure for Salafists in Europe, German counter-terrorism authorities, concerned about his potential to serve as a recruitment tool for radical Islamic groups, began monitoring his activities.

 

Despite being monitored, Deso Dogg crossed into Syria undetected in 2013, and gave his oath of allegiance to the jihadist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [ISIS] in early 2014. According to many media sources, he was reportedly killed by a rival al-Nusra suicide bomber in eastern Syria. Reports of his death, however, have not been independently confirmed, and ISIS fighters interviewed by the German newspaper Die Welt have denied he is dead.

 

A new survey published on April 29 shows that only half of the German population believes that Islam is a part of German culture and society. The Integration Barometer 2014, produced by the Expert Council of German Foundations on Integration and Migration, found that 44% of those with an immigrant background and 53% without a migration background rejected the statement: “Islam is part of Germany.” About half of the respondents, both with and without a migration background, nevertheless advocated religious instruction in schools. About two-thirds believe Islamic theology should be offered at universities.

 

The situation is different when it comes to making exceptions for individual Muslims, such as exemptions from sports or swimming lessons because of religious sensitivities. A clear majority, 76% of those without a migration background, viewed such special privileges in a negative light. In addition, 63% of those without a migration background rejected the right of Muslim teachers to wear headscarves in class. “The majority of respondents obviously believe that equality and religious neutrality are more important than the granting of special treatment on religious grounds,” the study concludes.

 

On April 22, the Bavarian Administrative Court in Munich ruled that an 18-year-old Muslim student does not have the constitutional right to wear a face-covering niqab in class at her state-run vocational college. The court said that her school had done nothing illegal in asking her to remove the veil, and that this prohibition did not infringe on her freedom of religious worship.

 

The court also said that the veil acted as a barrier for non-verbal communication. “Open communication during teaching is based not only on the spoken word, but also on non-verbal elements such as facial expressions, gestures and other body language,” the court said.

 

Meanwhile, a German-Turkish candidate for city council elections in the town of Neuss near Düsseldorf provoked the ire of many Germans when he added the Islamic crescent-moon to the logo of his party, the center-right Christian Democratic Union. The Islamized logo appeared on promotional campaign products such as pens, stickers and 4,000 bags.

 

Irritated CDU officials ordered Yasar Calik, 37, to cease and desist. He responded by accusing them of intolerance. Calik said many Turks are skeptical of the CDU and that he wants Muslims to know they can vote for the party, which some have dubbed the “Islamic Democratic Union.”

 

In Greece, controversial plans to build a taxpayer-funded mega-mosque in Athens have been delayed once again after a group of concerned citizens filed an appeal to block the €950,000 ($1.3 million) project. The government had agreed in November 2013 to build a mosque at the site of a former naval base in Votanikos, near central Athens.

 

Aris Spiliotopoulos, a candidate for the mayor of Athens for the center-right New Democracy party, called for a referendum on the construction of the mosque. In an April 16 interview with Skai TV, Spiliotopoulos, a former education and tourism minister, criticized plans to build a Muslim place of worship in the heart of Athens, saying that the capital does not need “another pole for illegal immigration” or “third-world tents under the sacred rock of the Acropolis.” Votanikos is located 3km from the Acropolis. Spiliotopoulos said: “I don’t want the mosque next to the Parthenon.”

 

The Friendship, Equality and Peace Party, purportedly representing Greek Muslims in region of Thrace, described Spiliotopoulos’ referendum proposals as an “insult to the hundreds of thousands of Muslims living in Athens, the only capital in the European Union without a mosque.” The group added:

 

“The construction of a mosque has been delayed for strange reasons for many years, which has opened a deep wound in terms of freedom of religion. Now, proposing a referendum for a place of worship has created great disappointment. We expect politicians to leave such a mentality, to avoid putting our country Greece in a difficult position within the international arena.”

 

Meanwhile, Muslim vandals are being blamed for a spate of attacks against Greek Orthodox churches on the island of Crete. Anti-Christian slogans written in Arabic were discovered on the walls of at least three churches.

 

In Italy, Home Secretary Angelino Alfano on April 4 warned that his country is facing a catastrophic wave of immigration from the Muslim world. “According to our information between 300,000 and 600,000 people are on the other side of the Mediterranean on the North African coastline, waiting to cross sooner or later,” he said at a conference on immigration in Palermo, Sicily.

 

In the first three months of 2014, more than 11,000 immigrants have landed in Italy, a seven-fold increase on 2013, with the high season for crossings about to begin as the weather improves. “The landings are non-stop and the emergency is increasingly glaring,” Alfano said.

 

On April 4, an official statement from the Italian Ministry of Health declared “the activation of appropriate measures of surveillance at all international access points to Italy” due to fears that at least 40 immigrants from Africa were infected with the Ebola virus.

 

The head of the Italian Navy, Admiral Giuseppe De Giorgi, said the influx of migrants is reaching “biblical proportions” and that “Italy is fighting a losing battle.”

 

Justice Minister Andrea Orlando on April 1 signed an agreement with his Moroccan counterpart to have Moroccan convicts sent back home. The move is aimed at tackling chronic overcrowding in Italian prisons. The agreement will affect Moroccans who have been convicted in Italy and sentenced to one or more years in prison, according to a statement released by the Justice Ministry. The new plan will allow convicts to serve out the rest of their sentences in Morocco while receiving “social reintegration” there, where “they have social and family ties.” There are some 4,000 Moroccan prisoners in Italian prisons.

 

In the Netherlands, Interior Minister Ronald Plasterk and Rob Bertholee, the head of the Dutch intelligence agency AIVD, on April 23 presented the AIVD annual report for 2013. The report says that more than 100 Dutch citizens or residents travelled to Syria in 2013 with the intention of taking part in jihadist activities there.

 

The vast majority of Dutch jihadists joined one of two groups: the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) or Jabhat al-Nusra (JaN). A relatively small proportion of jihadists (just over 20) returned home during the course of the year. The AIVD believes that at least ten men from the Netherlands were killed in Syria in 2013, including two Dutch jihadists who took their own lives in suicide attacks.

 

The report warns:

 

“The participation of foreign jihadists in the conflict in Syria has contributed to its escalation. Their experiences there, and the contacts they establish with international networks, mean that they may well pose a threat to national security if and when they return home. For the jihadist groups active in Syria, the presence of European fighters represents an excellent opportunity to recruit individuals familiar with our region to commit acts of terrorism here. In addition, returnees could exploit their status as veterans to radicalize others in the Netherlands.

 

“As well as potentially posing a direct threat, returnees from Syria might also have a radicalizing and mobilizing effect upon fellow Muslims. In the Netherlands, they could act as the catalyst pushing some young people already attracted by a radical strand of Islam into militant activism. That could strengthen local radical groups and spread their message to a wider audience.”

 

Meanwhile, police said they had arrested a 35-year-old Dutch-Turkish national named Aydin Coban in the case of a Canadian teenager who was blackmailed after exposing herself in front of a webcam. The 15-year-old girl, Amanda Todd, later committed suicide after detailing her harassment on a YouTube video watched by millions around the world. Dutch prosecutors said the man is suspected of blackmailing girls in Britain, the Netherlands and the United States. Canadian police said they would seek extradition.

 

The number of people requesting asylum in the Netherlands rose by more than 4,000 in 2013 to 17,190, the immigration service said on April 14. Somalia topped the list with just over 3,000 requests, followed by Syria (2,670) and Iraq (1,090).

 

In Norway, the education ministry approved a controversial plan to launch the country’s first Muslim-only primary school in Oslo. The school will be run by the Association of Muslim Mothers, which wants to teach its pupils Arabic and Islamic values as well as the standard subjects on the curriculum. A standard course on Religion, Philosophy and Ethics would be replaced by Islam, Religion and Philosophy.

 

The school aims to have 200 students, and is expected to look for premises in the east side of Oslo, home to many immigrants. Both Norway’s opposition Labour Party and the anti-immigrant Progress Party, which is part of the government coalition, have voiced opposition to the plan.

 

On April 28, envoys from Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries accused the Norwegian government of doing too little to protect its Muslim minority, and called for all criticism of Islam to be made illegal. The accusations against Norway were made in Geneva during a session of the United Nations Universal Periodic Review, which occurs every four years. Norwegian Foreign Minister Børge Brende told Norway’s NTB newswire: “It is a paradox that countries which do not support fundamental human rights have influence on the council, but that is the United Nations.”

 

In Spain, a large Muslim umbrella group called the Union of Islamic Communities in Spain [UCIDE] sent letters to education officials in all of the country’s 17 regions asking for precise data on the number of students in primary and secondary public schools who have applied for Islamic religious training.

 

UCIDE is lobbying the Spanish government to expand the teaching of Islam in the public school system, and is said to be compiling the data to back up its claim that there are not enough Islam teachers to keep up with the growing demand.

 

On April 30, police in Almería, a port city in southern Spain, arrested a French-Algerian jihadist who was returning to Europe from combat in Syria. Abdelmalek Tanem, 25, was a member of the al-Qaeda-linked group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [ISIS], from October 2013 to January 2014, according to a statement issued by the Spanish Interior Ministry.

 

“During this period, Tanem is believed to have carried out the work of ‘combatant’ and as a ‘facilitator’ on the Turkish-Syrian border in order to make it possible for other European citizens to be integrated into this jihadist group,” the statement says. Tanem is the second returning jihadist who has been arrested by Spanish police; the first was Mohamed Sadik Abdeluahid in Ceuta, in January.

 

On April 29, the Spanish government announced that it would allocate €2.1 million ($2.9 million) to try to stem illegal border crossings in Ceuta and Melilla, two Spanish exclaves in North Africa. More than 1,000 African migrants attempted to reach Spain in April during nearly daily attempts to storm and scale the six-meter (20-foot) triple-layer fence separating Melilla from Morocco.

 

In Sweden, the parliament on April 10 approved a new law that will make it easier for public prosecutors to take criminal action against Swedes who criticize immigrants or government officials online. The new law removes the requirement that there must be a special reason to prosecute for defamation or insult. Critics say the new law, which takes effect on January 1, 2015, is an assault on the exercise of free speech: Swedish thought police will be able to prosecute anyone who expresses an opinion about Muslim immigration and much else if that opinion is deemed to be defamation or slander.

 

The measure has been pushed by Swedish parliamentarian Andreas Norlén, who in an unchallenged debate on the issue in parliament, said: “I do not think it takes very many prosecutions before a signal is transmitted in the community that the Internet is not a lawless country: the sheriff is back in town.”

 

The Swedish government is also spending 60 million krona ($9 million) to boost voter turnout in Muslim neighborhoods—such as the Rinkeby district in Stockholm, the Rosengård district in Malmö, and the Rymdtorget and Bergsjön districts in Gothenburg—ahead of European elections in May.

 

Separately, the government was forced to drop a controversial plan to lower the tax rates in Muslim neighborhoods after the European Commission said that allowing immigrants to pay lower taxes than Swedes would violate EU rules on state aid.

 

According to the latest data from Eurostat, Sweden is the EU country that receives the most asylum seekers from developing countries relative to their population. Most of the asylum seekers in 2013 were from Afghanistan, Kosovo, Pakistan and Syria.

 

At the same time, more than 50,000 native Swedes fled the country in 2013, according to new data from Statistics Sweden (SCB). This is the highest figure since the peak years of emigration to North America in the 1880s. By contrast, immigration from the developing world to Sweden reached its highest level ever in 2013, with nearly 115,800 immigrants, according to the SCB.

 

On April 5, it emerged that a Swedish national of Somali origin was arrested in Kenya on suspicion of trying to recruit young men for the Islamic terrorist group, Al-Shabaab. Some 30 Swedish nationals have traveled to Somalia to join Islamic militant groups, according to the Swedish intelligence agency Säpo.

 

In Switzerland, the University of Fribourg will host the country’s first training center for imams. The center will provide courses for imams on Swiss culture and society, courses for social workers and health professionals on accommodating the Muslim community and, ultimately, a training program for new imams. The objective is to produce locally-trained imams to join the ranks of the country’s 150 imams, all of whom were schooled abroad.

 

The original idea for the project came from a national research program called “Religious Groups, State and Society,” which found that most of the imams and teachers of Islam did not speak Swiss national languages and did not know Swiss society, culture and laws.

U.S./Europe LNG Cooperation can Bring Prosperity

John R. Houk

© April 29, 2014

 

There is the potential for Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) to become the new boon for the U.S. economy. The cost of liquefying LGN is cost effective enough to meet a growing foreign demand for LNG in light of the current Russian extortion of some of its former Communist empire nations and Western Europe. The hat trick is to get busy in building enough terminals for exporting and importing to liquefy natural gas then ship it overseas then re-vaporize LNG to make it usable for European costumers.

 

My concern is that socialist and emerging former Communist nations of Europe may neither have the technical expertise or the financial capital to quickly and safely build that which is needed to create a market that is competitive enough to make the Russians think twice about its oil and gas extortion of Europe.

 

What would it take? It is my humble (and definitely not expert) opinion that something on the scale of the old Marshall Plan (SEE Also HERE) that was used to rebuild war crumbled economies of Europe that essentially raised Free Europe to a competitive edge with the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (aka USSR or Russian Communist Empire). This time Russia is using the economic force of its natural resources rather than Communist ideology to call shots that are beneficial to Kremlin perceived Russian National Interests.

 

I pray President Barack Hussein Obama has an epiphany that for all his governing debacles on foreign and domestic policy he sees the opportunity to do one thing that can be an actual positive for a Presidential legacy. That would entail the unlikely scenario of closing his eyes and ears to the fear mongering of Environmental Marxists, Climate Change delusions and Agenda 21 sustainability projects that threaten the sovereignty and Liberty of Americans. If Obama can get past those kind of Leftists he could pull a Reagan and stop Russia in it National Interest tracks without firing a shot and bring some much needed prosperity to the USA which in turn will increase tax revenue (without crazy taxation) and start the ball rolling on reducing the U.S. deficit.

 

Yeah I know that is a lot of “ands”; nevertheless a successful LNG building program benefitting Europe and America would cause such economic gain that if or (hopefully when) Conservatives take over Congress and the Oval Office there would be great hesitation to open the dirty books I believe will expose Obama as one of the most corrupt Presidents this nation has had since the scandal riddled Administration of Ulysses S. Grant (SEE Also HERE). Obama success with a LNG economic scenario between the USA and Europe would create a situation which no one would want to darken with past nefarious actions.

 

Here is a video that will enable to visualize the potential of exporting wealth even though the video looks at the ease of importing LNG.

Now with all this in mind you need to contact your Congressman to show your support for HR 6 which has the name Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act. This House Resolution if passes gets the ball rolling on exporting LNG to Europe so that nations have less dependence on energy resources from Russia. I am certain other Conservative organizations are supporting this. If you find a favorite one get on board. I heard about HR 6 via a Let Freedom Ring email from Colin Hanna. You can check that out below.

Dear Friend,

This Wednesday a bill that would force the government to allow the export of American liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Europe and third world countries will be marked-up in the House Energy and Commerce Committee.  The bill is the The Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act, H.R. 6, and we should all support it right now.
 

Please click here to contact your Congressman and Senators and ask them to support this critical bill.

Colin Hanna, president of Let Freedom Ring, sent the following letter to House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton and Colorado Congressman Cory Gardner:
 
               

“I write to support the swift passage of the Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act, H.R. 6 and to thank Mr. Gardner for introducing it.  This bill would respond to the urgent need to expand the exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) for the benefit of the American worker in the current difficult economy and for our friends in Europe and elsewhere who are at the mercy of Russia and Iran for their energy.

               

“The Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act, H.R. 6, would expedite the approval of export licenses to countries that belong to the World Trade Organization.  Currently export applications are languishing and are only considered for export to countries with which the United States has a free trade agreement.  It would also direct the approval of applications published in the Federal Register before March 6, 2014 without modification or delay.

               

“America’s plentiful natural gas, developed and undeveloped, can be a boon to the U.S. economy and it can help our allies and developing nations gain access to economical energy, giving them an alternative to supplies from Russia and Iran.

 

               

“Studies and reports from the Department of Energy, the House Committee on Commerce and Energy, and others have found that there is great interest in the world in American natural gas.  Now is the time to take this simple step to create more American jobs and strengthen our national security.”

 

 

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD IN WASHINGTON. LET US HELP YOU CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS TO SUPPORT H.R. 6, the Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act.

 

With warm regards,

Pipeline Politics; Is Putin Running Out of Gas?

 

The Cold War is now so over that it might as well be grouped with the ancient ice ages, but there is one echo rolling across Europe from East to West: the Russian attempt to dominate the natural gas market on the European continent. As the energy sector accounts for 25 percent of Russia’s economy, any large changes in energy markets present major challenges for Vladimir Putin. Those old enough to recall the Soviet gas pipeline controversy of the early 1980s a high-profile fight of the Reagan administration to deprive Moscow of hard currency are right to have a feeling of déjà vu, as Putin’s motives transcend honest commerce.

 

Despite huge gas reserves waiting to be tapped, most of Europe lags the United States in the shale gas boom for several reasons: a lack of mineral rights on private land, bureaucratic obstacles, the usual intransigent opposition from Europe’s potent green lobby, and, perhaps most important, the lack of adequate pipelines to connect new gas fields to the market. Hence, natural gas prices in Europe are several times higher than U.S. prices. Since natural gas and oil are Russia’s principal export commodities, the prospect of newly abundant oil and cheaper gas outside of Russia is a grave threat to Russia’s economic and political might in the region. Russia can’t do much about global oil trends, but Putin and the state-controlled Gazprom are doing everything they can to throttle new gas development in Eastern Europe, rerunning the same kind of behind-the-scenes propaganda against shale gas that the KGB ran against new NATO missiles back in the Cold War. Propagandists in Russia are promoting every translation possible for the message fracking=bad. The second prong of Putin’s strategy is to control pipeline development as far as possible. But things are not going well for him.

 

Gazprom is the linchpin of Putin’s political and economic strength. The state-controlled natural gas conglomerate is a huge source of revenues for the Russian budget, but also a slush fund for Putin’s clan the corrupt network of power-political and economic relationships that rules Russia today. Immediately after coming to power in 2000, Putin moved to put the company under his direct control. In short order, he made his protégé and current prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, chairman of Gazprom’s board and appointed another protégé, Alexey Miller, as CEO. According to a book by two prominent former Russian politicians, 11 of the 18 executive positions in Gazprom were quickly filled with Putin cronies. He then moved to make the company a national champion, giving it an exclusive license for the export of the country’s gigantic gas wealth. It is widely believed that Putin makes all of the key Gazprom decisions himself.

 

 

Putin’s energy cronyism is vertically integrated, as he ensures that infrastructure projects such as pipeline construction go to his friends’ firms at lucrative prices. Gazprom pipelines typically cost two to three times more than those built by Western companies, despite the much lower wages paid to Russian labor. While the German portion of the Nord Stream pipeline, for instance, cost $2.8 million per kilometer, the Russian portion built by one of Putin’s handpicked companies cost $6.5 million/km. This is one reason Putin likes pipelines, even if he can’t guarantee they will be fully utilized.

 

Sitting on 18 percent of the world’s current proven gas reserves (a percentage that shrinks with each new discovery elsewhere), Gazprom became one of the largest companies in the world. At the 2008 peak of the bubble in oil prices, to which Russian gas prices were indexed, Gazprom’s hubris overflowed. With a market valuation of $365 billion at the time, Alexey Miller confidently predicted that his company would become the largest in the world, with a market cap of up to $1 trillion by 2015, and that it would dominate the huge Chinese market as well as 10 percent of the American market with shipments of liquefied natural gas (LNG). Gazprom’s optimists thought it could command 30 percent of the world market.

 

 

Two other threats to Gazprom’s fortunes must also be mentioned. For years Gazprom and Kremlin propaganda have done their level best to scare the Europeans away from shale gas exploration. Alternatively dismissing it as a Hollywood invention or conjuring up an ecological apocalypse, the Kremlin seemingly believed that it can wish this threat away, despite evidence of the massive impact of the shale gas revolution in America. Early on, things seemed to go their way, with France and Bulgaria imposing a moratorium on shale gas exploration. No longer. With Great Britain now allowing fracking and Germany’s government submitting a draft law to do the same, the genie is out of the bottle. It’s only a matter of time before European countries begin exploiting their domestic shale gas fields, posing yet another challenge to the Russian monopolist.

 

Vladimir Putin may have dreamed of becoming the J.R. Ewing of Europe, but his recent moves are more in the mold of the hapless Cliff Barnes. His signature initiative at the moment is the proposed South Stream pipeline, which would run under the Black Sea and through Bulgaria to points west. Putin was hoping Gazprom could retain monopoly control of the pipeline, but because it runs through European Union territory, it is subject to the EU’s market regulations (known as the Third Energy Package ), which require that all pipelines be available for use by competing suppliers and overseen by an independent EU regulator. These conditions are unacceptable to Putin and make it unlikely that South Stream will be built.

 

 

That strategy envisaged South Stream as achieving two key political objectives. In bypassing Ukraine, heretofore the key transit country for Russian gas to Europe, it would provide the Kremlin with a powerful weapon for continued economic and political blackmail of Kiev. And, just as important, it would preempt the realization of the competing Nabucco pipeline project, designed to bring non-Russian gas from the Middle East and Central Asia into Europe. The Nabucco pipeline will run to Europe either by way of Greece and Albania into southern Italy, or through Bulgaria, Romania, and Hungary to a hub at Baumgarten, Austria. A decision on the final route is expected in June. The defeat of South Stream holds dire implications for Russia’s standing as the indispensable gas supplier to Europe and for the political fortunes of Putin. [Bold Emphasis Blog Editor – It is my impression Tony Newbill is drawing attention to the fact that the control of the proposed Nabucco Pipeline from Syria by Putin would make up for his ongoing apparent natural gas designs gone awry.]

 

 

Putin’s grand scheme of strong-arming Ukraine, Poland, and others and making Europe ever more dependent on Russian gas has not only failed but seriously endangers the gas monopoly’s very existence. Well-known experts such as Mikhail Korchemkin, head of East European Gas Analysis, believe that Gazprom has only a few years before bankruptcy. With Russia’s future oil exports looking soft the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Energy Research Institute in early April forecast that oil exports could drop by 20 percent over the next 30 years weakness in gas exports will deliver a double-whammy to Putin’s power base. The financial flop of the Soviet gas pipeline in the 1980s contributed significantly to the eventual collapse of the evil empire a few years later; the prospective collapse of Putin’s energy strategy may similarly hasten the demise of his evil empire lite.

The Competition to this is described here in this link:

 

http://www.examiner.com/article/it-s-not-about-the-chemical-weapons-it-s-about-the-syrian-pipeline

 

It’s not about the chemical weapons, it’s about the Syrian pipeline (Photos)

 

Obama is going after Syria to secure gas pipelines for Sunni Muslims.

 

America’s quest to bomb Syria is not about chemical weapons being used against the Syrians. Chemical weapons are basically a smoke screen, and Obama desperately wants to remove Assad from power for other reasons.

 

The players in this continuing world drama are Turkey, the United States, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Russia. There is a good reason why Turkey and Saudi Arabia both have their backs against the wall and are desperate to take out Assad.

 

 

Two years ago, Syria announced it found a promising gas field in its country, and Oil Minister Sufian Allawai said “The first wells were drilled at Qara in Homs governorate, and the flow rate is 400,000 cubic meters per day.” This is great news for Syria’s energy revenues. Besides the prospect of its own gas field, Syria is also one of the most strategic locations for natural gas pipelines to flow to Europe.

 

Qatar, home to the world’s largest gas field along with Iran, has proposed a gas pipeline from the Gulf to Turkey that would traverse Syria to the Mediterranean, with the gas then being shipped to Europe. Assad in 2009 refused to go along with the Qatar plan, instead inking deals with Russia and Iran.

 

Called the Islamic pipeline, it is set to open in 2016; in fact, Iran, Iraq and Syria signed deals in 2011 to construct the 3,480 mile natural gas pipeline that runs from Iran’s South Pars to Europe. This Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline is set to be the largest gas pipeline in the Middle East. It will snake through Iran, Iraq, Syria, South Lebanon and through the Mediterranean; in addition, the best refinery and infrastructure is in Damascus. Further talks between Iran, Syria, and Iraq for construction of the Islamic Pipeline kicked off in Baghdad today.

 

The Islamic pipeline through Syria could cut energy power of Qatar and Turkey. To make matters worse, most Arabs view the Islamic Pipeline as a Shi’ite pipeline serving Shi’ite interests. After all, it originates in Shi’ite Iran, passes through Shi’ite Iraq, and flows into Shi’ite controlled Syria. Therefore, the Sunni-dominated Gulf nations have both an economic and to a lesser extent, a religious reason, for stopping the Islamic Pipeline from becoming a reality. So far, the Gulf nations have violently opposed Syria’s adoption of the Islamic Pipeline by arming opposition fighters within Syria in order to destabilize the nation.

 

This is certainly one reason why President Obama helped run weapons from Benghazi, Libya, through Turkey into the hands of the Syrian rebels. Al Qaeda strongly opposes the Assad government and has joined other rebel factions in an effort to overthrow Assad and to install a more Sunni-friendly government.

 

Russia has built up naval presence in the ports of Latakia and Tartus to protect the pipeline.

 

Saudi Arabia is desperate to get rid of Assad. The Saudi’s, through their intelligence (READ ENTIRETY It’s not about the chemical weapons, it’s about the Syrian pipeline By Vicky Nissen; Examiner; 9/9/13)

The Federal Reserve Is Paying Banks NOT To Lend 1.8 Trillion Dollars To The American People

 

Did you know that U.S. banks have more than 1.8 trillion dollars parked at the Federal Reserve and that the Fed is actually paying them not to lend that money to us?  We were always told that the goal of quantitative easing was to “help the economy”, but the truth is that the vast majority of the money that the Fed has created through quantitative easing has not even gotten into the system.  Instead, most of it is sitting at the Fed slowly earning interest for the bankers.  Back in October 2008, just as the last financial crisis was starting, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced that the Federal Reserve would start paying interest on the reserves that banks keep at the Fed.  This caused an absolute explosion in the size of these reserves.  Back in 2008, U.S. banks had less than 2 billion dollars of excess reserves parked at the Fed.  Today, they have more than 1.8 trillion.  In less than five years, the pile of excess reserves has gotten nearly 1,000 times larger.  This is utter insanity, and it will have very serious consequences down the road.

 

Posted below is a chart that shows the explosive growth of these excess reserves in recent years…

This explains why all of the crazy money printing that the Fed has been doing has not caused tremendous inflation yet.  Most of the money has not even gotten into the economy.  The Fed has been paying banks not to lend it out.

 

But now that big pile of money is sitting out there, and at some point it is going to come pouring in to the U.S. economy.  When that happens, we could very well see an absolutely massive tsunami of inflation.

Wall Street Week Ahead: Fed may taper without causing market tantrum

 

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Months of anticipation will come to an end next week when the Federal Reserve finally says whether it will start to rein in its massive stimulus of the economy, which has flooded financial markets with some $2.75 trillion over the past five years, supercharging returns on everything from stocks to junk bonds.

 

But for all the concerns that the reduced presence of such a giant asset buyer would be calamitous for investors, it appears equity and bond markets are poised to take next week’s Fed decision largely in stride – provided the central bank doesn’t surprise with the size of its move or shock in some other way.

This will end in nation Isolating from the International free market Scheme because as these supply demand struggles increase without any future growth expanding the supply and population continuing to expand incomes in the free market will not be able to manage the continued inflation in the key vital resource categories and nations will have to respond to their society outcry with intervention in free market profitability.

If YOU Think Peace will Break-out in the Middle East, You’re Dreaming


Israel-Iran war map in German

John R. Houk

© August 18, 2012

 

I don’t have to be a prophet to predict that a war will explode in the Middle East soon. The Muslim nations surrounding Israel have been trying to destroy the Jewish State ever since their modern independence in 1948. For some Islamic Supremacist jealousy cannot court the concept of a sliver of land that a religion other than Islam sets the parameters for governance in the region.

 

Couple this with the old Arab League set up of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which has been legitimized by Western Powers by linking the PLO to a Western created Palestinian Authority (PA). Western reasoning for the PA is idiotically attempting to set up Israeli-Arab peace by grabbing Israeli land by forcing Israel to accept a Jew-hating sovereign Palestine to Israel’s East.  Of course there is PLO-independent Hamas to the southwest of Israel which is a tool of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and there is Iranian client terrorists Hezbollah to the north of Israel. Iran has been rattling swords against Israel for over half a decade. Egypt is becoming a Radical Muslim State as the Muslim Brotherhood tentacles spread through its government. Muslim Brotherhood Clerics have been voicing a call for unity among Muslim-Arabs for a pan-Islamic State with Jerusalem as its capital city. Syria directly north and east of Israel has been an Iranian client rattling swords against Israel ever since 1948 but they are having a problem with a civil war currently. I look to Syria to continue hostility with Israel no matter who wins that civil war. And there is Lebanon to the north which has become a client of the Shia dominated Hezbollah. Lebanon essentially has become a State within a State.

 

This report from the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) and written by Christopher Harmer will give you an idea what an all out war in the Middle Eastern region will look like. And by all out war I mean more than the USA and any coalition of the willing trying to use Western concepts in rebuilding a nation-state.

 

This war will have the appearance initially of multiple Muslim nations and Islamic terrorists attacking tiny Israel. If America honors its treaty with Israel will enter into the fray. If America enters the fray I have little doubt that Russia and Communist China will at first join in the Muslim side because of oil. America’s NATO allies will have to join on our side because an increasingly militant Russia will be a little scary for Europe that has diverted most of its money to Socialist programs that are barely staying afloat PLUS the issue of oil will force Europe to join USA-Israel so they are not cut off by a potential Russia-China-Iran victory.

 

I might point out the allegiance of nations I am pointing out here is conditional only our Treaty allies honor the military treaty terms. It could go bad for the USA if other variables take place in which treaties are broken.

 

The first broken treaty that would make a lot of nations very pleased is if America fails to honor our military treaty with Israel. If Obama is around when this war breaks out Obama could very easily throw Israel under the bus to see if another 1948 miracle occurs with Israel surviving multiple fronts of invasion.

 

Another scenario is that various European nations break away from NATO to join the Russia-China-Iran axis for petroleum and petro-Dollars/petro-Euros with the hope of abandoning America would ease the socio-economic pain that will occur if the NATO is honored on the European side.

 

When all out war breaks out globally this time it will make the ugliness of WWII look like a picnic.

What Happens to USA after Foreign Assembly Part Dependency?

What’s the USA GDP worth if WE are Dependent on assembly parts from a foreign supplier who does not want to take our dollar anymore? See how the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China), the main foreign suppliers of all world’s Assembly Parts supply and develop by years of out sourcing to Western Nations. Industrial manufacturing of the parts production all in the name of lowering production costs, but at the expense now of Our Self Reliance and Independence, is a huge mistake of economic imbalance that will lead to war no doubt.

Eric Canter’s right about the private sector being the Way forward with TRUE Stimulus growth. The problem is the Obama Environmentalists are standing in the way of this kind of Growth because THEY Fear Peak Earth and this Unfettered Growth is Harming the Earth and they THINK they need to Control Consumption rates. So this is why we have a stalled out supply-side growth economy….. Hum … How long before investors realize this and RUN for the EXITS???

 

Here is Canter talking about what is Needed to recover the Free Markets from the Grip of Environmentalism’s strangle hold on Growth, and we better get busy cause the supply-side pile of vital needs is not growing as fast as population is …. Can you say Bolsheviks?

They are using the dependency of the Western nations on the BRIC Nations parts manufacturing supply as the means to collapse the solvency and sovereignty of the Western nations’ financial and vitality as they pour more paper dollars off the backs of US citizens into the IMF bleeding more paper cash into Europe.  The problem with pouring more cash into the country is the same problem we have here in the USA. We have out sourced our primary wealth creator, Parts manufacturing down to where we are only an assembler of BRIC Parts manufacturing supply. This has capital circulating in the USA and Europe now maybe 2-3 times before it flows out of the USA and Europe over to the BRIC nations and this is why there is no recapitalization or capital formation taking place in the USA and Europe anymore just DEBT formation.
 

We need to Restore a balance to manufacturing not just because of financial displacement of capital but also so we are not Begging BRIC suppliers for Parts supplies like we are now to the point they are willing to defect from the Dollar, yes?

We have to be as tough on the BRIC nations as we are wanting to be with European budget gaps in terms of Currency valuation and revaluations regarding equality of nations GDP % or European divisions are going to drive them away from the USA and over to the BRIC nations alliance. This would be the first time since WW2. This would leave the USA and the Dollar wide open to defections and Isolate the USA from Parts supplies because we don’t have an Industrial base of manufacturing left to take the place of the Loss of imports that this kind of event would create.
 

It can’t be just all about pouring more paper into the IMF because if the BRIC suppliers still defect then what good is all that Paper capital going to do?? The defectors from the EU will transition to the Yuan. They are already talking about this. The leverage is not in the paper anymore because we out sourced to much of what represented the paper – dang it, and now the BRIC have too much of that Leverage!!
 

I use to run cattle out in the deserts of eastern Oregon and we would Put Green Goggles on the Cattle so they would think there was some Grass to chase and eat…. it didn’t work … neither will just putting the Green paper in the pockets of the same unproductive nations … Substance baby.

How Islam Killed Greco-Roman Civilization


charlemagne and-his-army-fighting-the-saracens-in-spain-778-from-the-story-of-ogier

In case you are unaware, huge amounts of Academic historical writings have emphasized the politically correct and Muslim Apologist revisionist history. In other words Academic Papers and books of an Academic source have disdained older academia and have latched onto the Muslim storyline of the spread of Islam across North Africa and Europe.

 

Emmet Scott has written Mohammed and Charlemagne Revisited: The History of a Controversy to set the record straight on the viciousness of Islamic conquests. The anti-jihadist essayist Fjordman has an excellent review of Scott’s book.

 

For a little comparison here is another book review of Scott’s book.

Breivik, European Free Speech and American Free Speech


Mo & Aisha k-i-s-s-i-n-g

John R. Houk

© April 5, 2012

 

The essayist Fjordman is an instrumental writer to expose the dark side of Islam to the Western world. Back in July 2011 mass murderer/terrorist Anders Breivik killed men, women and children under the delusion it would begin a grassroots paradigm (One may have to log into Google to read this link) that would take down Left oriented governments of Europe and replace them with a new European order that would employ a warped vision of Christianity to remove Muslims from Europe. Breivik built his warped paradigm on the backs of legitimate writers and politicians that have caught onto the nature of the dark side of Islam. That dark side incidentally is something that cannot coexist peacefully with the Western heritage of Judeo-Christian-Greco-Roman civilization that has developed into a civilized world of representative governments, Civil Rights and a socio-political society that differences are usually settled with legislation and an effective judicial system. I am a bit prejudiced but I have to say the United States of America has arisen to the highest level of this Western heritage. (That’s why everyone wants to move here even when they hate America.)

 

The act of terrorism that Breivik did was ghastly horrible. AND one the side effects was to give ammunition to Left Wing Multiculturalists that anti-jihad writers are nothing but extremist Right Wingers that promote hate and incite Islamophobia to the point of bigotry and violence. There were a host of anti-jihad writers that Breivik plagiarized and quoted for his master plan, but it seemed that Norwegian Fjordman was a large focus of inspiration that turned to twisted goals. It is one thing to expose Islam. It is quite another thing to breed hatred toward Muslim believers as a whole. I think Islam is evil myself; however under the principles of religious freedom and Free Speech Islam must be free to be practiced as long as the theo-political nature of Islam does not itself inspire Muslims to do the very same thing that Breivik did.

 

Unfortunately Europe does not have the same parameters of Free Speech that America has. God help America if our nation begins to dilute Free Speech as Europe has. In Europe a Christian can be slapped with the accusation of a hate crime by openly promoting Biblical morality if it offends non-Christians or practitioners of alternate lifestyles. Such warped limitations on Free Speech in Europe have already occurred.

 

** Äke Green: Pastor Äke Green of Sweden was convicted of hate crimes for preaching that homosexuality is a sin in 2004. Pastor Green’s conviction was overturned in Swedish Appellate Court in 2005, but if I was a betting man I am guessing Sweden has strengthened their hate crime law limiting Christianity. (SlantRight.com article posted in 2007)

 

** André-Mutien Léonard: Belgian homosexual activists have brought charges against Mgr André-Mutien Léonard, the Roman-Catholic bishop of Namur, for homophobia, a criminal offence in Belgium according to the country’s 2003 Anti-Discrimination Act. In an interview last April in the Walloon weekly Télé Moustique, the bishop is said to have described homosexuals as “abnormal” people. According to Michel Graindorge, the activists’ lawyer, the bishop intended to “stigmatize” homosexuals, whose “identity and dignity is debased from the moment that the bishop considers them to be abnormal.” (SlantRight.com article posted in 2007)

 

** Christian Vanneste: Last January Christian Vanneste, a member of the French parliament (who has just been reelected), was convicted for homophobia by a French court. Mr Vanneste had said that “heterosexuality is morally superior to homosexuality” and that “homosexuality endangers the survival of mankind.” (Brussels Journal 2007)

 

** Susanne Winter: Vienna — Austrian far-right parliamentarian Susanne Winter was convicted Thursday of incitement because of her anti-Muslim statements, including the claim that Islam’s prophet Mohammed was a paedophile. A court in Winter’s home town of Graz also found the 51-year-old politician guilty of humiliating a religion. She was sentenced to a fine of 24,000 euros (31,000 dollars) euros and a suspended prison term of three months, Austrian news agency APA reported. (Gates of Vienna 1/22/09)

 

** Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff: There is now a conviction against Austrian citizen Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff (ESW), who stood trial on a charge of “incitement to hatred” at a series of seminars educating about political Islam and the challenges we face. The case was closed on February 15th 2011 by judge Bettina Neubauer, who gave the following verdict to ESW, who was also convicted of being a “Repeat offender”, in spite of this conviction being her first:

 

·         Acquitted on the charge of incitement to hatred

 

·         Convicted for denigration of the teachings of a legally recognized religion.

 

·         Punishment: 120 day fines for a total of 480 euros.

 

 

 

After having gone through this material at the first two hearings, the audience of the case had a clear expectation that ESW would be acquitted of the charges and have her name cleared. But at the end of the second hearing, the judge added an unexpected twist to the case:

She inquired of ESW about her comments that the actions of Muhammad would today be considered ‘paedophilia’. While ensuring a nod of approval from the prosecutor, she then extended the charges to also encompass “Denigrating the teachings of a legally recognized religion”. (Gates of Vienna 2/18/11 READ ENTIRITY)

 

Judge Leo Levnaic-Iwanski upheld the verdict of the lower court, which convicted Elisabeth on the charge of “denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion.” (Gates of Vienna 12/20/11)

 

 

The Superior Court confirmed the verdict, although with a somewhat different reasoning. While the lower court regarded pedophilia as factually completely unjustified, the higher court judged the remark “liked a little something with children” to be an extreme evaluation. Only the isolated explanation that Mohammed had sex with a child was allowable.

In supporting the verdict, there was explicit reference to the Winter case and the disposition of the European Court of Justice: (Gates of Vienna 1/28/12 READ ENTIRITY)

 

** Geert Wilders: Fitna and some of the speeches delivered by Wilders hit the European concepts of political correctness, multiculturalism and diversity right smack in the groin. The Leftists of Europe and the Muslims of Europe (which are more radicalized than many would dare to comment on) went in violent seizures that someone would dare speak out against people that are divergent from Western Culture.

 

 

HERE IS THE THING. GEERT WILDERS HAS BEEN ACQUITTED IN THE DUTCH JUDICIAL SYSTEM! (SlantRight 2.0 6/26/11 READ ENTIRITY)

 

European Hate Speech Laws

 

 

In large part, the movement to circumscribe the bounds of free expression has its roots in three instruments of international law—the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Religious Discrimination (CERD), and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Article 10 of the ECHR, for example, grants the freedom of expression to all, but the exercise of this right is conditioned on conformity with the restrictions necessary, inter alia, “for the protection of the reputation and rights of others.” The CERD and ICCPR, which also purport to recognize the freedom of expression, go a step further. Article 4(a) of the CERD obligates signatories to make “all dissemination of ideas based on racial superiority or hatred” a punishable offense, while Article 20 of the ICCPR requires outlawing “any advocacy of national, racial, or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility, or violence.”

 

Given the nebulous standards on which much of Europe’s hate speech laws are based—indeed, there is not even a universally agreed upon definition for what constitutes hate speech—it is little wonder that such legislation has ensnared speech it was likely never meant to punish. Delineating the line between speech that is considered rude and that which is considered insulting for the purposes of criminal prosecution is an utterly subjective undertaking, and a distinction that governments are ill-suited to determine. Compounding the problem of these laws’ arbitrariness is their selective application: while European authorities have at times appeared reluctant to go after Islamist firebrands spouting hatred, those engaging in legitimate debate about Islamism are frequently targeted for prosecution. Examples abound: (The Legal Project © 2012 READ ENTIRITY)

 

I am sure There are other cases Left Wing Multicultural persecution of truth tellers especially related to Islam. The cases above are the ones I have been most familiar with over the years. I did not even mention cases in Canada which has a comparable Free Speech infringement in the similitude of Europe.

 

The horrendous terrorist murders perpetrated by Anders Breivik has thrown a monkey wrench into liberating Free Speech in Europe. Because of Breivik the anonymity pursued by Fjordman was exposed as Norwegian authorities began shining a light because Breivik based a large amount of his deviant epic on Fjordman’s writings.

 

Anders Breivik is now in the middle of his trial in Norway. Breivik has been found insane by a couple of psychiatric experts. Especially in Europe a successful insanity defense will keep Breivik out of prison. Breivik would be committed to a psych ward.

 

Here is the remarkable twist. Breivik does not want to be declared legally insane and escape prison. He wants to be prosecuted as a person acting on political ideology rather than insanity. Of course that sounds insane. There will be no acquittal for Anders Breivik. Here is a glimpse of the Breivik legal defense team goal:

 

Defense attorneys for confessed terrorist Anders Behring Breivik have confirmed that former guerrilla leader Mullah Krekar and anti-Muslim blogger Peder Jensen, better known as “Fjordman,” are among the roughly 35 persons they’re calling to testify during Breivik’s trial. The goal is to prove that Breivik, like Krekar and Jensen, is driven by political ideology, not insanity, and therefore can be held responsible for his attacks. (Krekar, ‘Fjordman’ called to testify; Views and News from Norway, 4/3/12)

 

As I asserted, I have no doubt that Breivik will be convicted under this legal defense and spend the rest of his life in jail.

 

Here’s the problem though. If the Breivik defense team is successful in waving a declaration of insanity and is convicted for political ideology, then all European anti-jihad writers and politicians will find themselves in a legal pickle. This is especially the case for Fjordman because he is a Norwegian citizen.  If Breivik is convicted for political thoughts as well as for murder then Fjordman would be an accomplice to the crimes of murder perpetrated by Breivik.

 

The reasoning will have nothing to do with whether or not Fjordman helped Breivik in the demented scheme to bring change to Europe. Fjordman could be judged guilty of inspiring Breivik to formulate his plan. It is the old anti-Free Speech ploy of assigning incitement to perform hate crimes via Fjordman (and others) writings.

 

Friends, this is not good for Free Speech or Religious Freedom!

 

If Breivik’s legal team is successful in waving a declaration of insanity, the best thing that could happen for Free Speech is for the Prosecution to pursue a case of murder in whatever degree that Norway utilizes (No death penalties in Europe). If independent thought via writing is attached to murder charges it will not bode well for Fjordman’s Free Speech and it will not bode well for Free Speech in all of Europe. There is an extension here as well. European law has been creeping in the American judicial system due to Left Wing activist judges who ignore that a foreign legal precedent quite probably would be unconstitutional in the good old USA.

 

The legal wrangling going on in Norway may not be getting a lot of press in America; however legal decisions there just might affect the rule of law in America. After all, our President has shown a predisposition to ignore the Constitution. Limiting Free Speech because of unconstitutional hate speech laws is not beyond the pale of America’s Left.

Euro Collapse and the New World Order


Euro-EU

 

John R. Houk

December 5, 2011

 

I always love a good Conspiracy Theory read. The best Conspiracy Theories are those that utilize actual facts rather than speculated assertions or just outright fiction. One such Conspiracy Theory is based on actual Socio-Political Theory of the collapse of the Eurozone’s Euro currency. Academics, Economists, Politicians, Globalists and Believers in National Sovereignty have become extremely concerned of the stability of the Euro. American Conservatives know the reason for Euro problems is because of the Socialist-Democratic-Entitlement society the European Union has developed over the years of the elitist dream of the One European Government often equated as the United States of Europe. The fine line between Conspiracy Theory and Political Theory is the reality of predicted outcomes. The outcome will have history paint the picture of how a theory is labeled.

 

I found a post by Danny Jeffrey of Freedom Rings 1776. Jeffrey is convinced the Euro will come to an end then delves into the reasons for the unraveling as an indictment against Globalism and moving toward a New World Order.

 

The Conspiracy Theory worst case scenario of a Euro collapse runs something like social unrest will overtake Europe. To restore order some kind of centralized authority must step in to return social order. There are three big powers in the EU of which two are members of the European Central Bank (ECB) which is somewhat like America’s Federal Reserve. Those big three are the United Kingdom, France and Germany. Social unrest will separate the UK out of a continental European power struggle. This leaves France and Germany. Perhaps France and Germany will somehow share power in restoring order to Europe. My Conspiracy Theory guess is France and Germany will eventually carve out economic zones roughly pertaining to Western Europe and Eastern Europe. It is likely Russia have something to say about that economic influence in Eastern Europe. For a short while France, Germany and Russia will be a triumvirate of economic stability in Europe. Eventually Russian paranoia and German National Interests will clash. France will either join Germany against Russia or France will protect its National Interests by courting a UK alliance. At this point this sounds like old European distrust and jealousies coming back to haunt Europe all because of the collapse of the Eurozone. Then there is one more element that will probably realign old European squabbles into yet another global affair.

 

That element is the rise of purist Radical Islam that is slowly spreading through what the West has perceived as Moderate Islam. I have no prediction on how Islam will play out in global chaos or war but I know it won’t be good. Islam might be the excuse global elites utilize to use the United Nations mechanisms set up by Agenda 21 to begin a New World Order under Leftist ideology to control individuals on a global basis. OR someone wakes up enough to be an influence to confront Islam with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

 

That wake-up call of course would be American voters giving the Left the boot and restore Constitutional Original Intent people to govern via the Branches of Executive, Legislative and Judicial. Unless America realizes the foundation of our Founding Fathers that made America exceptional, then the world is doomed to a conflict between an Agenda 21 and Islam with Communist China joining in on the side that best benefits the Chinese National Interests.

 

Now how is that for a Conspiracy Theory, eh?

 

Political Theory is not quite as dramatic as Conspiracy Theory. If the Euro collapses, conventional wisdom would be that the governments of the EU will turn to France and Germany to reform who can sit on the Board of Directors of the ECB meaning nations that can’t pay their bills will longer be a part of the economic process of the Eurozone. Those nations given the boot from the Board of Directors of the ECB will have to decide whether to return to a national currency or submit their economies to the banking policies of a reformed ECB. China, India and America thus will have a stake in backing up a reformed ECB to stabilize the global economy. The result: The world slides into a global chaos SLOWER than my Conspiracy Theory scenario or years more of a status quo globalist economy under current National Sovereignty situation of the world’s nations with America trying to keep its primary status as the world’s Capitalist profit/loss market economy.
