The Gradual Collapse of Sweden


DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN! I believe if the Islamic cultural destruction currently occurring in Sweden started to gain traction in the USA, it would be open rebellion by Americans that believe in the U.S. Constitution, Christian heritage and the principles established by our Founding Fathers that led thirteen diverse British colonies to unite under one flag and begin the process of E Pluribus UnumOut of many, One.

 

Sweden is a train wreck getting to derail into oblivion.

Birgitta Ohlsson is a politician from the Swedish Liberal party. On the National Day of Sweden in 2001, she published an essay entitled “Abolish Sweden!” She wanted to abolish all nation states and institute a democratic global parliament and a global police force.[1] Ohlsson has been a member of Parliament for many years, and served as Minister for European Union Affairs in the government of PM Reinfeldt between 2010 and 2014.

 

A global democracy doesn’t look very likely, but Ohlsson and other Swedish politicians have nevertheless made great progress in abolishing Sweden.

 

In November 2015, even Sweden had to reinstate a form of border control. At that point, more than one thousand asylum seekers flooded into the country every single day.[2] The then Deputy Prime Minister Åsa Romson from the Swedish Green Party literally cried on TV over this fact.[3] She did not cry because successive Swedish governments have done massive and possibly irreversible damage to the country through their immigration policies. No. Romson cried because she couldn’t continue immigration as fast as she wanted to.

 

Immigration Sweden

 

Their official party program in 2017 states the following, in multiple languages:

 

“The Swedish Green Party has a vision of a world without borders, where all people can move, but no one is forced to flee. We don’t believe in countries’ right to choose their citizens; we believe in people’s right to choose where they want to live. We should greet people with opportunities, not with walls. Everyone should be able to live, work and realise their dreams where they want to. Freedom of movement should be a human right.”[4]

 

Mass immigration to Sweden still continues, just at a slower pace than in the crazy year of 2015. Back then, Sweden couldn’t even find beds for the many Afghans, Iraqis, Somalis and other immigrants.

 

The German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle in late June 2017 conducted an interview with the Swedish Justice and Migration Minister Morgan Johansson, a Social Democrat. Johansson then stated that “We have between 400 and 500 asylum seekers each week coming to Sweden. So we haven’t shut our borders but we now have a level which we can handle. And we didn’t have that in 2015.” He stated that “Now we have control over that situation.” The Minister also claimed that there is “no direct link” between migration and terrorism.[5]

 

This last claim is a flat-out lie. It is a proven fact that Muslim asylum seekers and immigrants have been involved in many deadly Jihadist attacks in Europe. On April 7, 2017, the rejected Muslim migrant Rakhmat Akilov murdered five people and wounded several others when he mowed them down with a stolen truck in a terrorist attack in central Stockholm.[6] A couple of months later, the Swedish Justice Minister claims that there is no connection between migration and terrorism.

 

Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Justice Minister Johansson and other representatives of the Swedish government may pretend that things are under control. There are, however, many disturbing signs that this is not true.

 

In June 2017, eight new districts were added to a police list of “especially vulnerable areas,” where crime rates are very high. Some have labeled them no-go-zones, a label the authorities reject. In 2015, Sweden’s national police released a report of 53 so-called vulnerable areas, including 15 considered especially vulnerable. Eight more urban areas have now been added to that list, bringing the latter number up to 23.[7] This is a big increase in just two years of places where Swedish authorities no longer have effective control over their country’s territory.

 

A survey in June 2017 suggested that Swedish police officers are facing increased threats and violence and that criminal gangs have created a “parallel society.” Anna Nelberg Dennis, the vice chair of the Swedish Police Union, said that it has become more and more common for gangs of young people to attack police officers in certain areas. “I think it’s part of a change in society, where in socially vulnerable areas, gangs have created parallel societies where they take the law into their own hands,” she said. “[The gangs] believe that police shouldn’t be there because they rule the area. This is something that the police can’t solve themselves.”[8]

 

The Stockholm region has been hit by a wave of bloody, gang-related murders. A report has found that 94.5 per cent of people identified as being involved in the Swedish capital’s violent, organized crime scene have an immigration background.[9]

 

One woman visited the emergency ward at the hospital in Lund, southern Sweden, in 2017. She described it as “Dante’s Inferno,” massively overcrowded and slow.[10] Swedish hospital staff and ambulance personnel face increasing threats and violence. Elderly Swedes who have paid taxes their whole lives often receive shockingly poor treatment. The Swedish welfare state started to disintegrate after the authorities decided that they should be the welfare office of the entire planet.

 

Sweden has a record number of unsolved murder cases.[11] Many public gang shootings go unsolved because the ethnic gangs do not talk to the police. Less serious crime can be nearly risk-free for criminals in many municipalities. The police are understaffed and underfunded.

 

No fewer than 70 police stations in Sweden will be closed down during parts of or for the entire summer of 2017 due to a shortage of money and staff.[12] This is happening at a time when the number of rival mafias and criminal gangs operating in the country has never been higher.

 

Bråvalla festival, one of the major music festivals in Sweden, announced that they would cancel their entire festival in 2018 due to reported incidents of rape and several sexual assaults.[13] Sweden has infamously high rape rates. Swedish mass media have for many years claimed that this spike in rapes and other violent crime has nothing to do with immigration, despite strong evidence to the contrary. Numbers clearly show that immigrants from the Muslim world and Africa are vastly overrepresented in such crimes.[14]

 

Gang rapes were very rare in Scandinavia forty years ago. They are now disturbingly common, and destroy the lives of thousands of women. Even gang rapes of boys have now become fairly common in Sweden.

 

Some migrants from Afghanistan explain that the rape of young boys by one or several older men is a common cultural practice in their country called bacha bazi.[15] European countries such as Sweden have seen a big influx of young Muslim men from Afghanistan. Many of them claim to be children, even if they are in their 20s or older. They bring with them the mentality and practices of their Islamic homeland.

 

In 2017, a man from Afghanistan was convicted of anally raping a young boy. For child rape, he got one month in a soft Scandinavian prison. He could not be deported since he had become a Swedish citizen.[16]

 

The first Islamic terror attack in Scandinavia took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, on July 22, 1985. The attackers targeted American and Jewish targets. One person was killed and 26 injured. The terrorists were Palestinians based in Sweden. The problem has got a lot worse since then.

 

Michael Skråmos, a Swedish convert to Islam and former expert on “Islamophobia,” has joined the Islamic State and calls for Muslims to attack targets in Sweden.[17] A number of Islamic terrorists have even received welfare payments from Europe while staying in the Middle East.

 

At least 150 Jihadists have returned to Sweden after supporting the Islamic State (ISIS), probably the most brutal terrorist group on the planet. Many of them have been given protected identities by Swedish authorities to help them quietly re-integrate into Swedish society. Some of them complain that it is difficult to get a job after having fought for the mass-murdering slave traders of the Islamic State. A re-entry program — which may include free housing, a driver’s license, and tax benefits — was instituted by Anna Sjöstrand, a coordinator against violent extremism in the city of Lund. “There may be criticism, but [I think] that you should get the same help as others who seek help from us. We can’t say that because you made a wrong choice, you have no rights to come back and live in our society,” Sjöstrand told Swedish radio.[18]

 

Some might question whether freely joining genocidal terrorists who routinely behead people, burn them alive or stone them to death falls under the category of simply “making a wrong choice” in life.

 

It is highly likely that some terrorists or war criminals have received asylum in Sweden. The Swedish state seems very concerned with protecting them. It has been less concerned with protecting Swedes against foreign terrorists or war criminals.

 

In June 2017, the Swedish Security Service (Säpo) warned about an explosive growth in the number of radical Muslims in the country. “We have never seen anything like it before,” Säpo chief Anders Thornberg stated.[19] Thornberg said there are around 3,000 violent extremists in Sweden as of mid-2017. Some 2,000 of those are believed to have Islamic motives, and the remaining originate from far-right and far-left movements.[20] A 2010 report estimated the number of violent Islamic radicals at 200. The number of militant Muslims in Sweden has thus increased at least ten times in just seven years. Despite this, the country continues to import thousands of Muslims annually. Many of them are young and aggressive men from conflict areas.

 

Although Thornberg did not admit this openly, it is doubtful whether the security services can track thousands of people continuously. If the authorities cannot contain the number of potential Jihadists today, what will the situation be like 5, 10 or 20 years from now? When will the number of radical Muslims exceed the number of police officers in Swedish streets? What happens then?

 

The Nordic Passport Union allows citizens of Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland to travel and reside in another Nordic country without a passport or a residence permit. This agreement dates back to the 1950s. Today, these countries are also members of the Schengen Area, which includes much of the EU.

 

The Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) told the public broadcaster DR in June 2017 that Denmark may face a terror threat from the many radical Muslims in Sweden.[21] While Denmark, Norway and Finland also have a significant number of potential Jihadists, this threat is at least one order of magnitude worse in Sweden.

 

The Danish People’s Party (DF) and others in Denmark are starting to warn that increased border controls against Sweden may be necessary to keep out terror and crime.[22] Sweden’s other immediate neighbors, Norway and Finland, still haven’t properly entered this debate, but they should.

 

I have warned for many years that the problems in Sweden have grown so big that they are no longer merely a threat to the internal stability of Sweden. They have now also become a threat to neighboring countries.

Gov. Sarah Palin Writes To The Elijah List Family!


Intro to Gov. Sarah Palin Writes To The Elijah List Family!

Edited by John R. Houk

December 21, 2015

Below is an email from the Elijah List of which I am a subscriber. Theologically I may not agree with everything the Elijah List stands for, yet I do agree with much. The Elijah List is a for profit Christian organization that is of the charismatic persuasion emphasizing the Prophetic Movement.

I realize a lot of Christians may have a problem with the Prophetic Movement but you really need to get over it if you are one those problematic Christians. The Elijah List believes in the basics of the Christian faith and that is good enough for me. Ergo, try and hold up on the ‘heresy’ comments that many will wish to share.

Publisher Steve Shultz has a little marketing intro to a Sarah Palin email for the Elijah List subscribers and that is what I am sharing with my blog readers.

Gov. Sarah Palin Writes To The Elijah List Family!

By Gov. Sarah Palin

Dec 18, 2015

Elijah List

I’ll be honest! I was super jazzed two years ago to learn that Governor Sarah Palin reads “The Elijah List” every day!

Back in 2013, we shared how she wrote:

“The Elijah List has been a blessing to my family in many ways…Often God gives encouragement through an article that seems to be written just for situations we face at a specific time…The Elijah List team is working so hard to provide a modern forum that strives to ‘strengthen, encourage, and comfort, the Body of Christ!” -Gov. Sarah Palin

Today, I’m happy to provide a “new article” that Gov. Palin has just sent me, written specifically for our Elijah List readers!

You’re going to be super encouraged by it. I hope you’ll check out her new Devotional book, “SWEET FREEDOM” which we carry…this is just hot off the press! Here’s the link: www.elijahshopper.com/sweet-freedom-a-devotional-by-sarah-palin.

Also, one of Sarah Palin’s favorite pieces of art (pictured below on her mantle) is a picture of Jesus, “cracking up” laughing, that she ordered from THE ELIJAH LIST by artist Jennifer Page. She took a photo of it so Elijah List readers could see it.

We’ve made sure there are plenty of these available for you when you order today…so you can get one for yourself and a friend!

I LOVE THAT PICTURE OF JESUS LAUGHING!!

Please keep Sarah Palin in your prayers and be sure to forward this article to your family and friends!

Enjoy!

Gov. Sarah Palin Writes To The Elijah List Family!”

Sarah Palin, Wasilla, Alaska

Dear Elijah List Family,

I don’t necessarily like to be known as a “politician.” When the descriptive noun is applied to me in national interviews I jokingly plea that the reporter not use the “p-word” around me. However, it comes with the territory when one has held office and remains involved with a passion for political and cultural reform. Having been there, and willingly remaining in the lion’s den of politics, this politician can see clearly our nation is in a critical season of transition. For many, these are the most frightening days of their lives. Now more than ever our hope must be in the One True God. He is our only hope. He is our security. Not knowing what tomorrow holds, we must know who holds tomorrow.

Many in government and media try to convince us that God should not be in the political arena with us, invoking the concept of “separation of church and state.” Don’t be deceived into believing we can survive, much less thrive, without Him! Do you know where the phrase “separation of church and state” actually comes from? If you guessed the U.S. Constitution or our Declaration of Independence, you’d be wrong.

Thomas Jefferson referred to it in a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association, which had written him seeking help. Connecticut had established a state church – the Congregational Church, which meant the Baptists’ religious freedom was not an inherent right, but a favor granted by the state. Jefferson wrote to the Baptists that he shared their belief in religious freedom and that under the First Amendment was enshrined “a wall of separation” between the federal government and the churches; the government was not allowed to interfere with religion, guidance he expected the states would follow in perpetuity.

Today, it’s hip to invoke “separation of church and state” to insinuate or even demand that the Church have no influence on government and no role in politics. That is exactly wrong. In fact, Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists closes with an invocation of God and prayer. (Photo Sweet Freedom: A Devotional – by Sarah Palin via elijahshopper.com)

Another great American founder, General George Washington, commanded the Continental Army under a flag featuring an evergreen tree and the words “An Appeal to Heaven.” Today, it is imperative that we continue in the tradition of our founders in appealing to Heaven for the survival of our country; not only our leaders, but as voters.

Every campaign season, voters face decisions based on many reports. It can be easy to feel fearful of the doom and gloom you hear from big dog media and popular pundits, but as Believers we can take comfort in knowing our God is bigger, stronger, wiser, and so much more merciful towards us than anything we hear in the news.

Use Caleb and Joshua as our example. They were men of faith, not fear. God directed Moses to send twelve spies to Canaan. Ten spies saw giants in the land and relayed fearful reports. They felt as small as grasshoppers and wanted to just hop away into oblivion. But Caleb and Joshua ignored the giants. With unrelenting trust, they went up at once and took possession, “for we are well able to overcome.” They knew they were more than conquerors through our mighty God!

Friends, Caleb and Joshua ‘r us! And it’s time to take possession! Our examples didn’t hesitate – we’ve hesitated long enough, America – we must “go up at once!” and stake claim of this land of the free. Ignore the media giants and consider how to help and whom God would have you support.

When I was chosen to run for Vice President of the United States, I prayed voters would see through the media haze to see who we, as candidates, really were. Maybe I didn’t pray hard enough! Today, many Goliaths are in our nation’s path. Just as He led Moses’ men to see clearly, He’ll give you the same confidence as you seek His direction, personally and politically. It’s imperative we support godly, competent leaders.

(Photo by Jennifer Page “His Joy” via elijahshopper.com)

Between 1933 and 1981, there was only one major presidential address that included the words “God bless America.” But when Ronald Reagan kicked off his presidency by invoking God’s blessing on our nation, he set a new standard. From his inauguration through President George W. Bush’s final term, the phrase was used forty-nine times, and President Obama continued the practice. Our Presidents call out to God. Great! But we need some reciprocity. Our purpose is not just to be blessed by God, but to bless Him.

Our Founders sought the Lord when embarking on this grand experiment called America, knowing they needed Him if they were to break away from tyranny and to secure freedom.

For God’s favor to remain, we must turn back to Him and not squander America’s blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Today, thank God for blessing us. Remember Psalm 33:12: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance.” Pray every heart turns to Him. Take action! Invite God back into this nation – His nation. Rededicate America back to Him.

And have fun doing it. Really! Do not fear and don’t let your children fear. Remind them our Warrior King has the whole world in His hands and He wants us to be bold and joyful despite less than ideal circumstances.

His JoyPhoto of Sarah Palin’s mantle via Sarah Palin for The Elijah List

Upon my fireplace hearth is a beautiful picture I ordered from the Elijah List. Artist Jennifer Page depicts the smiling Son of God as our happy Savior full of the vibrant life He freely offers us. In my living room, Jesus is cracking up! I want my family to look up and see He is the cup of overflowing laughter, carefree sweet freedom, and miraculous blessings we can drink from to nourish our homes and our nation if we’ll all look up and believe Nehemiah 8:10, “The joy of the Lord is your strength!”

Merry, merry Christmas brothers and sisters!

Sarah Palin
Former Governor of Alaska and GOP Vice Presidential Nominee

_________________________

Sarah Palin first made history on December 4, 2006, when she was sworn in as the first female and youngest governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped Palin to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket.

Palin is the author of The New York Times best-selling books Going Rogue: An American Life (November 2009), America by Heart (November 2010), and Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas (November 2013). She was named to TIME magazine’s 2010 “100 Most Influential People in the World” list, the Smithsonian Institute’s “100 Most Significant Americans of All Time” and Barbara Walter’s “Ten Most Fascinating People” list two years in a row. She was the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute’s 2012 “Woman of the Year”. She was also the host of the 8-week documentary series Sarah Palin’s Alaska on TLC and the show Amazing America on the Sportsman Channel.

An internationally sought speaker and conservative leader, Palin is an influential force in the national debate. Her endorsement and support from her political action committee, SarahPAC, remain the gold standard for conservative candidates every election cycle. She is married to Todd Palin, a lifelong Alaskan, who worked as a production operator on the North Slope and is a four-time champion of the Iron Dog, the world’s longest snow machine race. They have five children and two grandchildren. The Palins are commercial fishermen in Alaska’s Bristol Bay. They enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, road trips, running, kids’ sports, and everything in the Great Outdoors. (For a full bio click here.)

Sarah Palin’s Endorsement of The Elijah List: “The Elijah List has been a blessing to my family in many ways, including providing us opportunities to share encouragement through the words, articles and even breaking news that’s found on the website. Often, God gives encouragement through an article that seems to be written just for situations we face at a specific time… I am thankful for bold faith-filled individuals and teams – like the Elijah List team – working so hard to provide a modern forum that strives to “strengthen, encourage and comfort” the Body of Christ…”

You Might Be a Conservative If…


Left-Right differences pictorial

Last week I cross posted Mark Alexander’s “You Might Be a Liberal If…” which was a list with links profiling America’s deluded Left. Ergo I feel compelled to post this week’s Alexander post “You Might Be a Conservative If...”

 

 

Just as an aside yesterday I urged readers to place Danny Jeffrey’s Fix Bayonets Library on their resource list to be armed with information to confront Leftists ruining America. This Mark Alexander Post should also serve as a resource to counter Leftists with Conservative Principles that keep America good.

You Might Be a Conservative If…

And Especially If…

The Patriot Post

 

Our conflict is not likely to cease so soon as every good man would wish. The measure of iniquity is not yet filled; and unless we can return a little more to first principles, and act a little more upon patriotic ground, I do not know when it will…” –George Washington (1779)

 

As a follow-up to my profile on the attributes of contemporary liberals, “You Might Be a Liberal If…,” I offer this look at the attributes associated with today’s conservatives.

 

Too often, political “Left v Right” labels are applied without conveying anything substantive about the beliefs or worldviews of the individual upon whom the label has been conferred.

 

So what’s in a name?

 

To answer that question, I’ve reviewed my own lists of conservative principles in order to better profile those who identify as “conservative.” Again, with apologies to Jeff Foxworthy:

 

You Might Be a Conservative If You…

And finally, if you know that the most cost-effective way you can promote Essential Liberty, help restore constitutional limits on government and the judiciary, and advocate for free enterprise, national defense and traditional American values, is to support The Patriot Post, you are most assuredly a Conservative – and a Patriot!

My Fearless Political Predictions For 2014


Karl Rove

Karl Rove early in President George W. Bush’s Administration had a lot of Conservative Republican admirers including myself. He earned the political nickname of The Architect (Most Conservatives now believe Rove is the Architect for losing Congress after Bush) for getting Bush past a close election over Climate loon Al Gore and in essentially exposing then Senator John Kerry as a Hanoi Jane kind-of-guy probably clandestinely involved in inventing a new smear term of Swiftboating (HERE, HERE and HERE).

 

Karl Rove after informing us that the most of his 2013 came to pass, he then proceeds to deliver predictions for 2014. Loving him, hating him or indifferent about Rove; he has a few predictions that I hope he is correct about. Namely, the GOP wins the Senate and the House is still a GOP majority. But there is one prediction that absolutely has no politics involved of which I wholly indorse.

 

I am an NFL football fan. Particularly I am a Seattle Seahawk fan and have been since the first year of their franchise existence. I grew up in Washington State and lived a 100 miles away in Eastern Washington but I went to every game during my season ticket holding days of those first few years. I was a rabid fan even those early years were losing years. I suspect that is why Seahawk fans are so loud today. Seahawk fans are not fair weather fans. The Rove prediction is a Super Bowl victory for the 2013 season played on the first Sunday in February 2014.

 

Golden Tate Miracle Catch 2

 

Now that I have established what I like about Rove’s predictions here are his predictions for 2014.

My Fearless Political Predictions For 2014

The penalty for ignoring ObamaCare’s individual mandate will be lifted.

 

By Karl Rove

December 26, 2013

Rove.com

 

It’s time to see how well I did with my predictions for 2013 and to offer a set of 2014 forecasts.

 

I got 10 predictions for this year right. President Obama’s job approval rating did drop—from 53% at year’s start to 40% this week. There was a new administration scandal, the most significant being the IRS targeting of conservative groups. And ObamaCare’s implementation was indeed “ragged and ugly” and “a continuing political advantage to Republicans” as forecast.

 

There was no grand budget bargain with entitlement reform. Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez did die. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie won handily and the Virginia gubernatorial race was closer (2.6%) than many experts predicted. House Judiciary Committee Republicans are working on immigration reform while the comprehensive Senate bill backed by Mr. Obama is stalled. Hillary Clinton is now the front-runner in 2016 polls while the Obama girls got a new puppy.

 

Four predictions were wrong: unemployment hit 7% instead of 8%; Syria’s Bashar Assad remains in power; Fidel Castro is still alive and President and Mrs. George W. Bush got a granddaughter, not a grandson. In one instance, the results were half-right. The debt ceiling was raised, but Mr. Obama wasn’t forced to make spending cuts in return.

 

So what does my crystal ball say for 2014? Mr. Obama’s Gallup disapproval rating will end higher than this week’s 53%. Republicans will keep the House with a modest pickup of 4-6 seats. The GOP will most likely end up with 50 or 51 Senate seats (in the former case, keeping Vice President Joe Biden fully occupied for two years presiding over the chamber). Control of the Senate may not be decided until December’s Louisiana runoff. Propelled by union contributions, Democrats will outspend Republicans overall in House and Senate races.

 

Republicans will lose a net of one or two of their 30 governorships. They’ll add to their numbers in statewide offices and state legislatures and see more Latino, Asian-American, African-American and women Republicans elected up and down the ballot.

 

Every Republican senator and virtually every representative challenged in a primary as insufficiently conservative will win. In reaction to ObamaCare, GOP political divisions are giving way to unity. Tens of millions more Americans will lose their coverage and find that new ObamaCare plans have higher premiums, larger deductibles and fewer doctors. Enrollment numbers will be smaller than projected and budget outlays will be higher. The White House will blame insurers and Republicans for the law’s continuing failures.

 

At year’s end, Kathleen Sebelius will still be HHS Secretary. Support for ObamaCare will drop below 30%, causing congressional Democrats to clamber for major changes and delays. The administration will resist most such ideas, except lifting the individual mandate penalty for 2014.

 

It won’t be all sweetness and light for the GOP, however. Republicans will debate joining rebellious Democrats in gutting and delaying elements of ObamaCare or leaving it alone.

 

The White House will be even more hard-edged and partisan— and not just because of John Podesta’s addition as counselor. Mr. Obama will do what he does when in trouble: attack. Expect more liberals to blame criticism of his actions on racism. The president’s willingness to ignore or unilaterally alter provisions of laws on the statute books—otherwise known as lawlessness—will be challenged by a growing number of successful lawsuits.

 

Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan will increase his already considerable influence in the House, taking the lead on GOP antipoverty efforts and presenting the most serious comprehensive health-care plan congressional Republicans have offered.

 

Overseas, the Syrian civil war will be to Mr. Obama what Rwandan genocide was to the Clinton administration: a moral stain. Despite more American concessions, the Iranian nuclear deal will collapse as that country refuses to curtail its uranium enrichment. The administration will resign itself to a nuclear Iran and shift to “containment,” further eroding U.S. credibility with Middle East allies. The new Afghan government will sign a Status of Forces Agreement, keeping Mr. Obama from squandering progress there as he did victory in Iraq by failing to get such an agreement (though Baghdad wanted one). North Korea’s Kim Jong Un will test another nuclear device.

 

Outside of politics: “Duck Dynasty” will set another cable viewership record. Miley Cyrus will fade as a cultural phenomenon. Sandra Bullock will win an Oscar for “Gravity.” Peyton Manning will win a fifth MVP award and the Seattle Seahawks their first Lombardi Trophy. (Blog Editor: Bold Emphasis Mine)

 

Instead of writing New Year’s resolutions, send me your 2014 predictions, in care of The Wall Street Journal. Happy prognosticating!

Sounding the Battle Cry


Tea Party Icons

Allen West has started a Political Action Committee called Allen West Guardian Fund. I am a huge supporter of West’s Conservative and Counterjihad candor. I am also shocked that FL-18 did not overwhelmingly choose West as its Congressman on November 2012. West was gerrymandered out of his incumbent FL-22 by stoking that district with obvious Dem Party supporters. The ironic tragedy of this gerrymandering was that it happened at the hands of a Republican dominated State Congress. FL-18 went with the Dem Patrick Murphy 50.3% to West’s 49.7%. Murphy’s razor thin victory was marred by typical local Dem Party shenanigans that controlled the vote count in sections of FL-18.

 

The Allen West Guardian Fund PAC is new and does need the infusion of cash to begin its influence on Conservative politics. I encourage you to support West’s new PAC. Below is the email notification I received which includes a donation link.

Dear Fellow Patriot,

I’m not known as one to mince words.

On FOX, CNN, Meet the Press, and every TV show I’ve ever been on, I’ve said what I meant and meant what I said. That’s why my life of service is rooted in leading. It’s why people like you respect me for saying what I think – candidly, hon­estly, and succinctly.

As a Member of Congress, I was only one vote out of 435. But I was one of a few who once wore the uniform of the United States Military and who understood how to wield and preserve American power.

We love our great nation too much to sit back and take our loss in 2012 as the final verdict on America. That’s why I intend to use the newfound freedom I’ve been given to take my efforts to defeat the Obama liberal progressive agenda to the next level.

Today I’m thrilled to introduce our new PAC, the Allen West Guardian Fund. When I give the opening keynote address at CPAC on Thursday, I will outline the Guardian Fund’s plans to double our efforts to expose and combat the Obama Administration and its progressive plans, but I wanted you to be the first to know about this exciting news.

Join me in building a grassroots army to help elect 12 new hard-charging constitutional conservatives who either have a military background or are minorities committed to taking a stand against big government and President Obama for the next four years.

But this isn’t about me; it’s about America. And I can’t do it alone. So I’m asking you to stand firm as we continue this fight because that’s what our country needs and what the next generation, our children and grandchildren, deserve!

Will you stand with me by contributing $25, $50, $100 or more to the Allen West Guardian Fund today?

America is the land of the free and the home of the brave. But which one will prevail over the next four years depends on you, me, and how we together fight to win the battle for our beloved country. That’s why we’ve set an ambitious goal of raising $5 Million in the next 24 months to fund this operation.

As a soldier, I know what America needs to secure the future for the next generations.

 

o   First and foremost, Americans want to be safe. Safe at work, safe at home, safe from radical Islamic terrorism.

 

o   Second, Americans want to be free. Free to start a business and to reach for the American dream. Free to do what they are promised to be free to do in the U.S. Constitution. Free to retire without debt, without remorse, and without bankrupting their children’s future.

 

o   Third, Americans want to be respected and told the truth by the leaders they elect. President Obama does not tell the truth nor is he trustworthy. He’s lied about Obamacare, he’s lied about raising taxes, he’s lied about spending, and he’s lied about putting Ameri­ca first.

 

The bottom line—America is heading down the wrong path. The liberal progressives in Washington view the United States of America as their experimental laboratory for their failed left­ist policies, and we must stop them. That’s why I’m asking for your support of the Allen West Guardian Fund today. Please follow this link to contribute $25, $50, $100 or more today.

Thank you in advance for your support and God bless America.

Steadfast and loyal,

 

Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA (ret)
U.S. Congressman (2011-2013)

P.S. Now that I’m not constrained by my duties as a Congressman, I can focus my efforts on revealing the truth about Barack Obama’s dangerous plan for America and the left’s progressive social experiments. I’m thrilled to announce the Allen West Guardian Fund which will help to elect 12 new Constitutional conservatives and defend our Constitution. But I’m counting on you to help us raise $5 million over the next 24 months. Please follow this link to contribute $25, $50, $100 or more today.

Thoughts on Shamim Masih’s ‘Dr. Muhammad Amjid’


Dr. Muhammad Amjid

Dr. Muhammad Amjid

 

John R. Houk

© February 13, 2013

 

Below is a post sent by Shamim Masih profiling Dr. Muhammad Amjid as a man working to improve the lot of the poor in Pakistan. Shamim is heavily involved in charity/non-profits that promotes inter-faith cooperation to help the poor discover a better path to a prosperous life. Inter-faith in this case is usually between Islam and Christianity. I have noticed that Islamic minority faiths such as Shia and Ahmadiyya. Sunni Islam considers Shia and Ahmadiyya to be heresies and as such they are not well treated in Pakistan.

 

I like to be clear that I consider Islam of any stripe to be an antichrist religion. Thus I am not real big on the interfaith maxim because ultimately Sharia Law takes the stand that Christians are deceived by corrupted Scripture and thus to be humiliated for being infidels.

 

Shamim in all likelihood does not appreciate my stand on interfaith work with Islam. On the other hand if Moderate Muslims are willing to take a stand in the spirit of equal rights for humans of all faiths, races and creeds I believe it to be magnificent.

 

I like to try to get corroborating information on Dr. Amjid via Google, I could not this time. However let’s examine some of the organizations Shamim associates with Dr. Amjid.

 

Shamim credits Dr. Amjid for founding SHELTAR International. Shamim writes a bit of what SHELTAR represent but I am going to post the info from the organization’s homepage to bring a little more clarity:

 

SHELTAR International has come forward to bring revolution by social progress through community involvement and capacity building in the health, education, environment and rehabilitation sectors.

 

SHELTAR was established in 1999 to address the problems and sufferings of deprived humanity. SHELTAR is contributing its share to the development of the society. SHELTAR’s principal objectives are to bring social and behavioral change in the system through mass awareness and community participation. SHELTAR aims to recognize the derogatory and forlorn health conditions, which have stigmatized our rural commune.

 

OUR VISION

Our vision is to alleviate poverty and ill health through communal well-being.

 

OUR MISSION

To bring virtual revolution by social progress through community involvement and capacity building in health, education, environment and rehabilitation sectors.

 

SHELTAR International sounds a bit like a subsidiary of UN Agenda 21 which is a path to global government and quasi-freedom as filtered through the eyes of Eco-Marxism. Agenda 21’s Eco-Marxism is not compatible with American Liberty and our Constitutional Bill of Rights. On the other hand an effective Eco-Marxist Agenda 21if successfully implemented would probably benefit Christians in Pakistan more than hinder them. Islam and Sharia are not exactly known for tolerance of cross-cultural Liberty.

 

All-Pakistan-Muslim-League-APML logoShamim also reveals that Dr. Amjid was (or is – I’m not clear yet) the Senior VP former Pakistan dictator Parvaiz (or Pervez) Musharraf’s political party known as All Pakistan Muslim League (APML). Musharraf established the APML as a political means to regain power rather than the auspices of the Pakistan military. That hasn’t worked for Musharraf.

 

Evidently APML is not popular with Shamim. I haven’t delved into the reasons as to why. Shamim makes a point Dr. Amjid denies he has joined the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) [SA PPP history HERE and HERE]. In Googling the PPP I discovered that a more Pakistan People's Party stampprevalent spelling of Dr. ‘Amjid’ is ‘Amjad’. There are several Google search engine links relating how Dr. Amjad has been a senior advisor to General Musharraf and that he has joined the PPP. I don’t understand the reason that Dr. Amjid refutes that claim. Perhaps the explanation is something as simple as the press releases confused meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf as a PPP positive in politics.

 

Shamim’s confidence in Dr. Muhammad Amjid seems to based on thoughts expressed in the first paragraph of Shamim’s article:

 

The people from different communities can develop strong ties with each other, once their leaders interact and work jointly for harmony and tolerance, said Dr. Muhammad Amjid.

Ignorance and lack of education sow hatred and division in our society

Involve in positive change

 

Islamabad Pakistan (Shamim Masih): Peace and harmony must not be promoted only in words, but also in concrete actions of peace. The people from different communities can develop strong ties with each other, once their leaders interact and work jointly for harmony and tolerance, said Dr. Muhammad Amjid.

 

Talking to Shamim in an interview Dr. Amjid said that non-violence and dialogue is an effective tactic to resolve conflicts and remove prejudice, and therefore people from different faiths must come closer by taking joint initiatives for promotion of peace and harmony.

 

Dr. Muhammad Amjid, a business magnate, a futuristic and politically in, lives and runs his business in Islamabad for the last two decades. A former student of Forman Christian College, Lahore, settled in Islamabad and started his business and gradually stepped in list of the successful business man of the history of Islamabad/Rawalpindi. Being the Chief Executive of Pharmaceutical Production unit, he has been involved in Research & Development of different Pharmaceutical Products, which include Drugs, Vaccine & sera. In addition, the Open International University awarded due to above work Ph. D. for complementary Medicine.

 

We are forced to wonder when someone doing charitable work among the poorest of this nation trying to ease their misery- the name appeared, Dr. Muhammad Amjid,  kind hearted man comprehend the ache of the average man faces and fervent to alleviate miseries of his surroundings. Being practical, he started a non-profit organization under the name “SHELTAR International” in 1999. SHELTAR International; is a society for health, Environment, Literacy and Rehabilitation. It aims to bring social and behavioral change in the system through mass awareness and community participation.  Hepatitis is a virus that travels through the blood stream and attacks the liver. Pakistan is among those countries that have a high carrier rate of Hepatitis B and C and as compare to women it is more prevalent in men. A large number of people need to have screening for Hepatitis. Talking about the humanitarian work done, he briefly described that though the tests are not very expensive but the fact is most of our community is poor and vulnerable so cannot they cannot afford these tests. Sheltar International identified and polish the potential of the community to avail the opportunity and also to improve their quality of life. Keeping in view the above mentioned problem SHELTAR International supported women VOs and they have series of activities against Hepatitis to provoke the rapidly spreading HBV & HCV in our local community. He has very positive in resolving the issues of the people.

 

Dr. Muhammad Amjid had been part of the governing team in previous government, and associated with All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) as Senior Vice President. He denied the news printed about joining Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), he said he met with Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf in December, 2012 but didn’t join PPP as party member.

 

Dozens of former military dictator Gen (Retd) Parvaiz Musharraf’s aide, including Fawad Chaudhary, have quit APML so far.

 

Like I have full faith in the fact that there is God, I also have solid belief that Pakistan is here to stay and we have everything. There is shortage of nothing but committed leadership who work for the sake the country. I simply have no doubt in writing; he is committed to deliver to the nation.

 

Be Blessed,

 

Shamim Masih

Uncle Same - Take America Back

Election 2012 is probably the most serious this nation has faced in decades. How you vote may determine the future of America for decades if not America’s very existence as we know it.

 

Here is a forwarded email originally from WallBuilders that you may wish also to pass on to an undecided Christian.

Defining Core Beliefs

 

From WallBuilders

Both the Democrats and the Republicans concluded their respective national conventions. In addition to each highlighting its nominee for President, each also drafted its national platform, setting forth its worldview philosophy on dozens of issues and values. Many of the items, or planks, in those platforms are directly addressed in the Bible and are therefore of critical importance and interest to voters of faith. Below are just a few examples of such planks.

 

On the Issue of Unborn Human Life

 

·         Democrat Platform: “The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay.”

 

·         Republican Platform: “Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.”

 

On the Issue of Traditional Marriage

 

·         Democrat Platform: “We support marriage equality and support the movement to secure equal treatment under law for same-sex couples. We also support the freedom of churches and religious entities to decide how to administer marriage as a religious sacrament without government interference.”

 

·         Republican Platform: “The institution of marriage is the foundation of civil society. Its success as an institution will determine our success as a nation. It has been proven by both experience and endless social science studies that traditional marriage is best for children.” “We reaffirm our support for a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.”

 

The fundamental beliefs of each Party are set forth every four years as it crafts its new platform. When candidates identify themselves as either Democrat or Republican, they align themselves — that is, they stand on — the platform drafted by the delegates and leaders of that particular Party.

As you go to the polls this November, make sure you are informed about what your candidate and his or her Party believes.

Read the 2012 Democratic Platform


Read the 2012 Republican Platform

 

Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.

The Myth of Sarah Palin


Sarah Palin rallying voters 12-2-11

 

I found an excellent piece on Sarah Palin written by Judson Phillips at Tea Party Nation. Phillips is responding to the Hollywood hit piece movie on Sarah Palin that can be viewed on HBO. The movie is called “Game Change” and it seems HBO produced the film merely to display Palin as a dummy. Phillips sets the record straight!
