On Defining Religion

  • What the West does not understand is that Islam admits that government control is central to Islam and that Muslims must, sooner or later, demand to live under an Islamic government.

 

  • The majority of the world does not understand that much of the American media is in a propaganda war against the Trump administration simply because he names Islamic jihad and would prefer to see a strong and prosperous America as a world leader rather than to see a dictatorship — secular or theocratic — as a world leader.

 

  • Islam claims to be an Abrahamic religion, but in fact Islam came to the world 600 years after Christ, not to affirm the Bible but to discredit it; not to co-exist with “the people of the book” — Jews and Christians — but to replace them, after accusing them of intentionally falsifying the Bible.

 

  • Islam was created as a rebellion against the Bible and its values, and it relies on government enforcement to do so.

 

  • Political and legal (sharia) Islam is much more than a religion. Is the First Amendment a suicide pact?

 

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said that President Donald Trump’s 90-day ban on immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries is “a religiously based ban,” and “if they can ban Muslims, why can’t they ban Mormons.” This has become the position of the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, which has influenced not only the American public but has convinced the majority of the world that America is “bad.” How can we blame the world, and even a good segment of American citizens, for hating America when such disingenuous and misleading claims are aired to the world from US officials and broadcast by American television channels?

 

The majority of the world does not understand that much of the American media is in a propaganda war against the Trump Administration simply because he names Islamic jihad and would prefer to see a strong and prosperous America as a world leader, rather than to see a dictatorship — secular or theocratic — as a world leader. He ran as a Republican; meanwhile, Democrats and the mainstream media refuse to engage in respectful and legitimate debate on the most vital threat to Western civilization in the twenty-first century: Islam. Truth has become irrelevant; people seem to prefer a political game of tug-of-war to sway public opinion against the Trump Administration, and, presumably, to elect Democrats forever. That is how the system is set up.

 

Political discussions on television have become extremely frustrating; they have turned into shouting matches and name-calling at the least informative levels. Television hosts often become instigators and participants in the shouting matches. The thinking is apparently that the louder they get, the more attractive the program will be. Meanwhile everyone is talking at once; the viewer cannot hear anyone, so the program could not be more boring.

 

Under the US Constitution, freedom of religion is protected. and Islam has been welcomed inside the West on that basis as one of the three Abrahamic religions. According to Western values and the Western understanding of the word, “religion” is supposed to be a personal relationship with God, where free will is of utmost importance; the believer has authority only over himself or herself when it comes to religious laws or punishing sins (such as leaving the religion or committing adultery) — quite different from criminal laws intended to protect society. Western values also allow followers of a religion the freedom to proselytize, but never by resorting to government enforcement.

 

Bottom line, the Western definition of religion is in harmony with the Biblical values of the human rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and that all human beings are created equal under the law. It is considered a basic Western value to view God, family and country as a top priority.

 

Now let us compare these values to Islamic values:

 

  • Muslim citizens have the right to punish other citizens with humiliating, severe, cruel and unusual punishments such as death, flogging and amputation, for sinning against Allah, the Quran or Islam. Those “crimes” include leaving Islam, being a homosexual, or committing adultery. And if the Islamic government does not enforce such punishments, any Muslim on the street has the right to apply the punishment against another Muslim and not be prosecuted. That is why apostates, such as myself, cannot visit any Muslim county; the fear is not only from Islamic governments but from anyone on the street.

 

  • Being a Muslim is not a personal relationship with God, as it is under the Bible, but is enforced by the state at birth. When a child is born in Egypt to a Muslim father, the birth certificate is stamped “Muslim” and all government-issued documents as well. A child must learn Islamic studies in school and practice Islam throughout his life. In Egypt, the twin sons of a Christian divorced mother were forced to take Islamic studies and become Muslim just because their originally-Christian father converted to Islam. Today, in Egypt, I am still considered Muslim and such a status could never change if I ever lived there again.

 

  • Islamic law and leaders rely on government enforcement — under penalty of death — to keep Muslims within Islam and to convert the minority Christian population into Islam. Islamic sharia law, obliges Islamic states to enforce religious law, and if the Muslim head of state refuses to follow religious law, sharia permits the public to use force to remove the head of state from office.

 

  • Islam claims to be an Abrahamic religion, but in fact Islam came to the world 600 years after Christ, not to affirm the Bible but to discredit it; not to co-exist with “the people of the book,” Jews and Christians, but to replace them — after accusing them of intentionally falsifying the Bible. Islam was created as a rebellion against the Bible and its values, and relies on government enforcement to do so.

 

The tenets above are just a few of the differences in values between Islam, the Bible and the Western concept of religion. What the West does not understand is that Islam admits that government control is central to Islam, and Muslims must demand to live under an Islamic government sooner or later. That might explain the reason for the eternal violence in nearly all Muslim countries, between government being in the hands of a religious theocracy or of the military. Islam, as it is practiced today, has violated all Western definitions of religion and values.

 

Political and legal (sharia) Islam is much more than a religion. Is the First Amendment a suicide pact?

Examining Linda Sarsour Real News

John R. Houk

It’s time to spread the word against Islamic Supremacists and Leftists spewing bigoted hate toward those ONLY telling the truth about what is in the Quran, Hadith and Sira of Islam.

 

For those who have Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, we ask that you show your support for Brigitte and Ayaan, by using the hashtag #IStandWithBrigitteAndAyaan, which was started by Dave Rubin, host of The Rubin Report and an open-minded ally of true human rights.

 

 

One Islamic Supremacist to look at is Linda Sarsour. She is a Palestinian-American that grew up in Brooklyn New York. Because of heritage she is fully supportive of Jew-hating Palestinians who would rather destroy Israel and rename the whole area Palestine. A name created by the Romans to dishonor Jews and a word roughly created by the League of Nations after WWI that was an area of land formerly occupied by Turkey to create a Jewish Homeland. The League gave the British the Mandate to make that happen. Instead the British carved out a large eastern portion to reward the Hashemite Clan aid to defeat the Turks in WWI. The Hashemites called the carved out Palestinian land Transjordan. When the Hashemites joined the surrounding Arab nations to destroy Israel at its birth in 1948, the Transjordanian army (called the Arab Legion) was the only invader that came out substantially ahead.

 

The Transjordan monarch stole more Palestinian land designated for Jews and called it the West Bank because it was west of the Jordan River. The Hashemite King then officially incorporated his conquered land into his Kingdom renaming the nation Jordan.

 

The irony of the Jordanian conquest of the land called Judea and Samaria by Israel, is that British Officers ran the Arab Legion thus providing British military strategy for the Jordanian army to conquer land designated for a Jewish Homeland to Jordan. Essentially abandoning the British Mandate’s purpose.

 

But I digress.

 

The Arabs that call themselves Palestinians whom Linda Sarsour supports are essentially under the management of a group of Islamic terrorists. The larger group of terrorists is recognized by the USA as the Palestinian Authority (PA); however, the real governing entity is the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which is a union of Arab terrorists dominated by the Fatah terrorists. Another Islamic terrorist organization called Hamas is the effectual governing entity of what a map will tell you is the Gaza Strip. Hamas doesn’t pretend to seek peace with Israel as the PLO dominated PA does, but calls for the bloody death of all Jews and the total destruction of Israel.

 

Linda Sarsour defends and promotes the concepts of a Palestine sovereign nation on Jewish land. Also as a true Muslim Apologist she makes deceptive statements to non-Muslim Americans implying Islam is peace and Sharia is the best form of law.

 

Ironically Fox News has come to Sarsour’s aid by calling her Counterjihad critics producers of Fake News:

 

 

In the days since she helped organize the massive Women’s March on Washington, the Brooklyn-born, hijab-wearing activist has been targeted on the internet by false reports that she supports Islamic State militants and favors replacing the U.S. legal system with Islamic religious law.

 

On social media, critics have circulated a photo of her holding up one finger, like a sports fan celebrating a championship, and claimed she’s giving “the ISIS one-fingered salute.” In fact, she is on record as calling the Islamic State a global cancer.

 

Other posts have falsely claimed that she supports the imposition of Islamic law on the U.S., citing, as evidence, a sarcastic tweet she made in 2015 that was actually intended to ridicule conspiracy theories about secret Muslim plots to take over the American legal system.

 

Bloggers and conservative websites also circulated a picture of her at a convention of Muslim civic leaders, standing with a group of people that included a Milwaukee activist whose brother was arrested in Israel in 1998 and convicted of giving $40,000 to a Hamas leader. The photo, they said, was proof of “ties” to Hamas.

 

“Ludicrous,” said Sarsour, who was out rallying again Wednesday night in her hometown of New York City, …

 

The online attacks, Sarsour said, were the work of “fake news purveyors” and “right-wing media outlets recirculating false information.” READ ENTIRETY (Attacks target Muslim-American activist after DC march; Deepti Hajela; Fox News; 1/26/17)

 

So, is it actually Fake News that Sarsour wants Sharia in America and is supportive of Islamic terrorists? The website The Secular Brownie examines some Sarsour tweets. Those tweets do not explicitly call for Sharia and the support of Islamic terrorism, BUT she either uses deceptive qualifiers or does not condemn Islamic terrorist attacks. The tweets expose Linda Sarsour’s true allegiance:

 

Linda Sarsour was the head of the Women’s March in the United States.  There is a great irony and contradiction in letting someone who deflects criticism from the misogynistic Saudi Arabia lead the Women’s March.  Let’s examine some tweets.

 

saraour-tweet1

 

She’s basically saying “women not having the right to drive in Saudi Arabia shouldn’t be a big deal because they get 10 weeks paid maternity leave.”  Do you not realize she’s talking about a place where the culture only values women as mothers and wives?  If the culture favored women as solely housewives/mothers don’t you think incentives for pregnancy would exist?

 

saraour-tweet-2

 

In this tweet she attempts to deflect criticism from the headscarf and women’s covering by trivializing it as a social issue. … This is for a woman to have the right to choose.  If the government is so invasive of women’s bodily expressions, wouldn’t you call that misogynistic, sexist, etc.?  As a “feminist”, how do you fail to see this?

 

saraour-tweet-3

 

… It’s similar to saying “racism doesn’t exist in the United States because Barack Obama was president.”  In some of these countries there is honor violence, and even sharia courts that punishes rape victims.  But of course, they have women leaders, therefore “no sexism.”

 

saraour-tweet-4

 

She is basically defending Sharia Law in this tweet.  Does she not realize that as an apostate, I would be subject to capital punishment in Saudi Arabia and homosexuals would be punished in some way? … Women who complained about rape needed the testimony of four witnesses in Sharia court, which they could not find, making them subject to public stoning.  Of course despite all this, Linda brags about the interest free loans in Sharia and ignores who would be marginalized in that system.

 

 

Of course Linda had to spin the narrative.

 

saraour-tweet-5

 

She’s basically saying her haters don’t want to see her succeed because she’s Arab. …

 

… Through her wording she made it seem like she was under danger and the left needed to unite against these “right wingers” (just for challenging someone’s feminist convictions.) READ ENTIRETY (Linda Sarsour’s Awkward Defensiveness Over Saudi Oppression That The Left Seems To Ignore; The Secular Brownie; 1/24/17)

 

And finally, FrontPageMag has sniffed out Linda Sarsour’s support of Islamic terrorism and Sharia either directly or by association (e.g. her husband):

 

In 2004, Sarsour acknowledged that a friend of hers as well as a cousin were both serving long sentences in Israeli jails because of their efforts to recruit jihadists to murder Jews. Moreover, she revealed that her brother-in-law was serving a 12-year prison term because of his affiliation with Hamas.

Speaking of creepy realtives, Sarsour’s husband, Maher Judeh, mourned the 1998 death of the Hamas “master terrorists” Adel and Imad Awadallah; he praised the heroism of a Palestinian Authority police officer who had carried out a shooting attack at a checkpoint in Israel; he has expressed support for the terrorist organization Fatah; and he has lauded the founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a Marxist-Leninist revolutionary organization.

 

 

In May 2012 Sarsour tweeted that the so-called “underwear bomber,” an Al-Qaeda operative who in 2009 had tried to blow up a Detroit-bound passenger jet in mid-flight, was actually a CIA agent participating in America’s “war on Islam.”

 

In November 2012 in Baltimore, Sarsour—ever eager to peddle her woeful tale of Islamic victimhood—spoke at a Muslim Public Affairs Council conference titled “Facing Race: Xenophobic Hate Crimes.” This is the same Council that views the murderous Jew-haters of Hezbollah as members of “a liberation movement” that is “fighting for freedom.”

 

 

In August 2015 Sarsour spoke out in support of the incarcerated Palestinian Islamic Jihad member Muhammad Allan, a known recruiter of suicide bombers.

According to CounterJihad.com, Sarsour has attended and spoken at numerous rallies sponsored by Al-Awda, a group that views Israel as a terrorist, genocidal state whose very creation was a “catastrophe” for Arab peoples.

Sarsour has also solicited donations for the Hamas-affiliated Palestine Children’s Relief Fund.

 

 

In November 2015, Sarsour was a featured speaker at the 21st anniversary banquet of the Council on American-Islamic Relations‘ [CAIR’s] San Francisco chapter. Further, she is presently scheduled to speak at upcoming CAIR banquets in February and March. Terrorism expert Steven Emerson has accurately described CAIR as “a radical fundamentalist front group for Hamas.”

Last June, Sarsour spoke at a Virginia fundraising dinner sponsored by Islamic Relief USA, whose parent group has provided financial aid to Hamas.
In September, Sarsour was a featured speaker at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America, a Muslim Brotherhood front group that promotes Sharia Law and Islamic supremacism. The Brotherhood, it should be noted, is the parent group of both Hamas and Al-Qaeda.

In October, Sarsour spoke at an event sponsored by a chapter of the Muslim Students Association, whose national umbrella group is an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood, and whose conferences routinely feature inflammatory speeches by raging anti-Semites.

 

In November, Sarsour spoke at the annual conference of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), where she lauded Muslims who “unequivocally support” the Hamas-inspired BDS campaign. AMP is a major BDS promoter, and several of its leading board members and officials were formerly members and/or supporters of Islamic extremist groups that promoted and funded the agendas of Hamas.

In December 2016 in Chicago, Sarsour spoke at the annual (jointly held) convention of the Muslim American Society (whose agendas are dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood) and the Islamic Circle of North America (which, according to Steven Emerson, “openly supports militant Islamic fundamentalist organizations, praises terror attacks, issues incendiary attacks on western values and policies, and supports the imposition of Sharia”). At that convention, Linda Sarsour posed for a picture with Salah Sarsour (no known relation), who was jailed by Israel in the 1990s because of his fundraising activities on behalf of Hamas. READ ENTIRETY (THE ANTI-SEMITE WHO ORGANIZED THE ‘WOMEN’S MARCH ON WASHINGTON’; By John Perazzo; FrontPageMag; 1/23/17)

 

Sarsour on Sharia Law:

 

Sarsour has openly supported Sharia law, a legal system that treats women much differently than men and punishes lawbreakers with flogging, amputation, and stoning.

 

In 2011, Sarsour referred to Sharia as “reasonable,” tweeting: “once u read into the details it makes a lot of sense.”

 

sarsour-on-sharia-tweet-1

 

Last April, Sarsour again took to Twitter to defend Sharia as being “misunderstood,” and “pushed as some evil Muslim agenda.”

 

sarsour-on-sharia-tweet-2

 

She has even promoted Sharia as a means of financial benefit, tweeting: “If you are still paying interest than Sharia Law hasn’t taken over America. #justsaying. READ ENTIRETY (Women’s March National Co-Chair: Sharia Law is ‘Reasonable’ ,’ Misunderstood’; By Andrew Eicher; CNSNews.com; 1/25/17 5:27 PM EST)

 

I pray you now understand the nefarious hypocrisy Linda Sarsour when she calls people like Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali wicked names and threatening with violence and removal of their vaginas.

Linda Sarsour at Feminist Women’s March 1-21-17

 

We regret to inform you of a shocking verbal attack launched against our Founder Brigitte Gabriel, and the courageous Ayaan Hirsi Ali, by an Islamic extremist named Linda Sarsour.

Although Sarsour’s disgusting verbal assault took place back in 2011, it has only now been brought to light, given her active and particularly ironic involvement in the supposed women’s rights march, which took place last weekend in Washington, D.C.

WARNING: The language and content of these comments are extremely offensive.

sarsour-vulgarity-toward-b-gabriel-ayaan-hirsi-ali-tweetSarsour vulgarity toward B. Gabriel & Ayaan Hirsi Ali Tweet

 

These comments are all the more appalling when one considers that Ayaan Hirsi Ali was a victim of Female Genital Mutilation.

Sarsour’s comments, reprehensible as they are, do not surprise anyone who knows the truth about her radical ties.

Ms. Sarsour has been an open advocate for Sharia law, and has connections to terror groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah, and ISIS.

In fact, Sarsour has three known relatives who have been arrested for terrorist activity!

Sarsour had come under fire for her radical ties before a spotlight was recently shined on her jaw dropping comments about Gabriel and Ali.

 

act-email-of-sarsour-tweet-on-sharia

ACT Email of Sarsour Tweet on Sharia

As usual, the anti-American fringe defended her, and mainstream media refused to cover the truth behind Sarsour’s extremist connections.

Here’s what the anti-American Southern Poverty Law had to say about their darling Sarsour:

 

“Islamophobes have been attacking #WomensMarch organizer @lsarsour. We stand with her against this type of hate and bigotry. #IMarchWithLinda”

 

So, what does this story tell you about groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and other anti-American outlets who attack ACT for America as a “hate group?”

It tells you that they are the true haters. They are the bigots who cower under the cloak of political correctness, and seek to enable even the most dangerous radicals.

More to it, this uncovers the nefarious alliance between the far-left and radical Islam, and shows any rational citizen that the SPLC and other anti-American groups are not genuinely interested in human rights.

Rather, they are interested in the destruction of Western Judeo-Christian civilization, and willing to align with anyone who shares their devious vision.

Here are two survivors of Islamic extremism, Brigitte Gabriel, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, fighting for true women’s rights, and this Sharia sympathizing extremist attacks them with the most vile and hateful comments imaginable.

So now the question remains, will the mainstream media cover this abomination, or sweep it under the rug to continue their politically correct narrative about radical Islam?

For those who have Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, we ask that you show your support for Brigitte and Ayaan, by using the hashtag #IStandWithBrigitteAndAyaan, which was started by Dave Rubin, host of The Rubin Report and an open-minded ally of true human rights.

Please check our social media pages and share with us why you stand with Brigitte and Ayaan against true hatred and radicalism.

Pentagon’s Sloppy Bookkeeping Means $6.5 Trillion Can’t Pass an Audit

 

The Defense Department over the years has been notorious for its lax accounting practices. The Pentagon has never completed an audit of how they actually spend the trillions of dollars on wars, equipment, personnel, housing, healthcare and procurements.

 

An increasingly impatient Congress has demanded that the Army achieve “audit readiness” for the first time by Sept. 30, 2017, so that lawmakers can get a better handle on military spending. But Pentagon watchdogs think that may be mission impossible, and for good reason.

 

A Department of Defense inspector general’s report released last week offered a jaw-dropping insight into just how bad the military’s auditing system is.

 

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service, the behemoth Indianapolis-based agency that provides finance and accounting services for the Pentagon’s civilian and military members, could not provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of year-end adjustments to Army general fund transactions and data.

 

The DFAS has the sole responsibility for paying all DOD military and personnel, retirees and annuitants, along with Pentagon contractors and vendors. The agency is also in charge of electronic government initiatives, including within the Executive Office of the President, the Department of Energy and the Departing of Veterans Affairs.

 

There’s nothing in the new IG’s report to suggest that anyone has misplaced or absconded with large sums of money. Rather, the agency has done an incompetent job of providing written authorization for every one of their transactions – so-called “journal vouchers” that READ THE REST (Pentagon’s Sloppy Bookkeeping Means $6.5 Trillion Can’t Pass an Audit; By The Fiscal Times; Yahoo Finance; 7/31/16)

Methane hydrate apocalypse? Maybe not…

Posted on September 20, 2016 by energyskeptic

 

[ I don’t think there’s enough evidence yet to decide for sure there won’t be a gas hydrate apocalypse, but here’s some evidence that this might not happen. Even Benton, who wrote “When Life Nearly Died” didn’t pin the mass murderer of the Permian extinction on gas hydrates.

 

I’ve also read Peter Ward’s “Under a Green Sky” and many other books and peer-reviewed articles, and will continue to try to follow the mystery of extinction events and who the mass murderers were.

 

Until then, here are some of the articles I’ve run across that cast some doubt on this being a sure thing, though clearly more research needs to be done.

 

There’s also the hope that peak oil, which makes all other resources available, including coal, natural gas and oil itself, prevent us from going extinct as energy reduces population back to about 1 billion or so (whatever it was before fossil fuels replaced wood and muscle power) and we READ THE REST

 

http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/100873/alice-friedemann-when-trucks-stop-running

 

Alice Friedemann is a transportation expert sounding the alarm on the unsustainable nature of our modern trucking system, which is critical for delivering goods where they need to be, when they need to be, in our just-in-time economy.

 

The world’s trucking fleet is remarkably dependent on petroleum and, for a number of reasons she outlines in this interview, is not feasibly able to shift over to electricity or other alternative fuels.

 

To warn of the risks and consequences of a collapse in trucking, she founded EnergySkeptic.com and authored the book When The Trucks Stop Running: Energy and the Future of Transportation. And while unlikely, her projected aftermath of a sudden complete shutdown of the trucking fleet is sobering, revealing just how dependent we are:

 

Within a week, in roughly this order, grocery stores would be out of dairy and other items that are delivered many times a day. And by the week, the shelves would be empty.

Hospitals, pharmacies, factories, and many other businesses also get several deliveries a day, and they’d be running out of stuff the first day.

And the second day, there’s be panic and hoarding. And restaurants, pharmacies would close. ATM’s would be out of money. Construction would stop. There’d be increasing layoffs. Increasing enormous amounts of trash not getting picked up, 685,000 tons a day. Service stations would be closed. Very few people would be working. And the livestock would start to be hungry from lack of feed deliveries.

Then within two weeks, clean water supplies would run out. Within four weeks to eight weeks, there wouldn’t be coal delivered to power plants and electricity would start shutting down. And when that happened, about a quarter of our pipelines use electricity, and so natural gas plants wouldn’t be fed natural gas and they’d start shutting down.

It’s a big interdependent system. That’s part of the problem. It’s like Liebig’s Law of the Minimum.

Civilization Jihad aka Stealth Jihad

 

  1. Origins of Civilization Jihad (Stealth Jihad)

 

August 2004, an alert Maryland Transportation Authority Police officer observed a woman wearing traditional Islamic garb videotaping the support structures of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and conducted a traffic stop. The driver was Ismail Elbarasse and detained on an outstanding material witness warrant issued in Chicago in connection with fundraising for Hamas. In the basement of his home in Annandale, VA, a hidden sub-basement was found, containing 80 banker boxes of the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. One of the most important of these documents was the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan for the United States and was entitled, “An Explanatory Memorandum On The General Strategic Goal For The Group In North America” (English version or Arabic version), written in May 1991 primarily by Mohamed Akram, a former director of the United Association of Studies and Research (UASR), a Hamas front that was based in Northern Virginia from 1991 to 2004. UASR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorist finance trial case that this document was entered into evidence, was headed by Ahmed Yousef who now serves as political advisor to head of Hamas in Gaza, Ismail Haniya.

Here is a segment of the FrontPageMag story on Hillary is trying to bring Sharia Law and the US Constitution together, oh my!!!!

 

  “As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton affirmed the Obama Administration’s support for this campaign on July 15, 2011, when she gave an address on the freedom of speech at an OIC [i.e. Organization of Islamic Cooperation] conference on Combating Religious Intolerance.

 

“Together,” she said, “we have begun to overcome the false divide that pits religious sensitivities against freedom of expression and we are pursuing a new approach.”

 

But how could both be protected? Ihsanoglu [Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu] offered the answer: criminalizing what he considered to be hatred and incitement to violence. “We cannot and must not ignore the implications of hate speech and incitement of discrimination and violence.” But in restricting the freedom of speech, Clinton had a First Amendment to deal with, and so in place of legal restrictions on criticizing Islam, she suggested “old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming, so that people don’t feel that they have the support to do what we abhor.” She held a lengthy closed-door meeting with Ihsanoglu in December 2011 to facilitate the adoption of measures that would advance the OIC’s anti-free speech agenda, which amounted to an attempt to impose Sharia blasphemy laws upon the West. But what agreements she and Ihsanoglu made, if any, have never been disclosed. Hillary’s contact with Ihsanoglu was initiated by Gulen’s associate Ozkok. Read more at these links:

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

 

RUSH: Now I want to go back to the rest of the new totalitarian piece and give you some examples of it.  And it has been suggested to me that I ask all of you to start paying attention to examples of this that you encounter. Not necessarily things that happen to you, but things that you see in the news, maybe where you live or just anywhere.  Just make a note of it, and become aware of it.  It’s one thing to have this new totalitarianism described to you.  By the way, it’s not new.  The real brilliance of this piece is like Angelo Codevilla’s piece on the ruling class.

 

 

It just infuriates them because the key element of totalitarianism, not only will you be defeated by them, but in time you will love them, and you will agree with them, and you will support them, and you will actively join them.  And you will not disagree.  That is what we are in the midst of seeing. …

 

 

“For a fair number of people in what’s supposed to be a democracy, ‘winning’ in any normal political sense simply isn’t enough. They are not really trying to capture something as pedestrian as political equality, nor are they satisfied if they get it.” They claim that’s what they’re about.  Equality.  They’re not about equality at all.  They’re about total domination.

 

 

… That’s why the Republicans have fallen into a huge trap on all of this.  Bipartisanship.  They are not bipartisan.  Somebody give me an example of left-wing bipartisanship.  They don’t even define it the way we do.  Bipartisanship, as they define it, as in we cave on our core beliefs and agree with them.  That is bipartisanship.  There is no compromise.

 

 

So, folks, it’s an all-out assault on the criminal justice system and an attempt, which will not stop, to have the entire Grand Jury system found corrupt, and if they could get rid of it. And why?  Because they didn’t get the result.  They did not prevail.  There are people who disagree with them, and that will not be tolerated.  People who disagree with them, whether they are high judges, whether they are prosecutors, whether they are average ordinary every day citizens, it will not be tolerated.

 

 

“A new document reveals that the Department of Justice, the IRS, and the FBI colluded to prosecute Barack Obama opponents.”  This is from Judicial Watch.  Involves Lois Lerner.  Just the headlines, folks: “New Docs Reveal DOJ, IRS, and FBI Colluding to Prosecute Obama Opponents.” These are the 501(c)(3)s that the conservative fundraising group is asking for tax-exempt status.  Judicial Watch has found evidence that the DOJ, the IRS, the FBI were colluding to prosecute them out of existence.

Witness the Radicals

 

By Justin O. Smith

Any American who truly loves this country will not give one good damn about being called “racist” by the party of hypocrisy, the Progressive Democrat Party, for standing for Donald Trump’s policies to control our borders, halt illegal immigration, and safeguard U.S. sovereignty and national security. We reject the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party that uses little children to promote lies concerning illegal aliens and separating families. We reject the hypocrisy of the Far Left movement that screams “Baby Killer” at our Veterans any other time that they aren’t carting out loser generals, such as General John Allen [Blog Editor: Could General Allen have been extorted into endorsing and supporting Crooked Hillary at the DNC? Read this entire article for context!], and Gold Star parents, like Khizr and Ghazala Khan, who promote Sharia law in America and unrestrained Muslim immigration ]Blog Editor: Damning news Khizr Khan you won’t see from MSM on TV or Print – Shoebat.com, Conservative Tribune & WND]. And if America does not get behind Donald Trump’s immigration policies to halt the Progressive Democrats’ insanity, America, as we have known Her, will cease to exist.

 

A quick look at these people and groups who support illegal aliens and open borders for the U.S. shows that Donald Trump has been right to respond to the attacks aimed at him. He just has not responded forcefully enough.

 

Socialist billionaire George Soros is currently funding 187 anti-Trump and largely anti-American organizations, through the Open Society Institute. Included in these groups, one finds the Alliance for Justice, which regularly depicts Republican judicial nominees as “extremists”. One finds America’s Voice, which advocates open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens. One finds the American Civil Liberties Union which supports open borders and has defended suspected terrorists and their supporters. And for all America to see, the Brookings Institute is on the list, consistently working with internationalists and state-sponsored programs toward the establishment of a U.N. dominated world government.

 

Soros also now funds the racist Hispanic organization LA RAZA, which is pertinent on all levels of the illegal alien question. This also places a new light on why Trump questioned Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s ability to remain unbiased in the Trump University case, since Curiel, the son of illegal aliens, is a member of LA RAZA Lawyer’s Association of California and philosophically aligned with LA RAZA’s cause.

 

Initially funded by the Ford Foundation, the National Council of Churches and the United Auto Worker’s Union, the National Council of LA RAZA (“the race” in Spanish) formed as a Mexican-American activist group. Several of its chapters, including the Southwest Council of La Raza and the Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan, are violent in nature. They have often been led by members of the Communist Party, such as Maclovio Barraza, and they seek to carve out a racist Hispanic nation in the American West, in what is called the “Reconquista” [reconquest].

 

Focusing on Progressive assertions that Republican immigration policies separate families, it must be said that normal civilized families make every effort to stay together, and children go wherever their parents lead. If any illegal aliens are deported under a Trump presidency due to their own abuse of U.S. hospitality and immigration law, taking their children with them or leaving them behind in proper care will be their own free choice, just as they chose to break U.S. law. They will split their family, not Americans or the U.S. government.

 

And, the same Far Left group of Commie-pinko fascists who wipe their collective asses on the U.S. Constitution and trash the families of the men Hillary and Obama left to be murdered in Benghazi, calling Foreign Officer Sean Smith’s mother a liar, are the same Hillary supporters who used the Khan family’s Gold Star status to vilify Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims. But Khizr Khan’s own background proves that once gain Trump is right.

 

Isn’t it curious that although Ghazala Khan wore the hijab at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, advancing a portrait of Muslim victim-hood, she is pictured with Obama at the 2012 DNC without it?

 

Khizr Khan has deep ties to international Islamist investors and controversial immigration programs that enable foreigners, including Iranian agents, to buy their way into the U.S., according to Sen. Jeff Sessions. Khan is a promoter of sharia law and co-founder of the ‘Journal of Contemporary Issues in Muslim Law [sharia]. He also supports the recruitment of young people to jihadism/holy war, as detailed by Said Ramadan, the son-in-law of Hassan al-Banna who founded the Muslim Brotherhood — a terrorist organization to which Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s aide, is tied.

 

Khan’s service to Hogan and Hartson law firm, a mega-D.C. firm, from 2000 to 2007, illustrates perfectly the extreme political motivations behind his and Ghazala’s appearance on the DNC stage. This firm, now Hogan Lovells LLP, works for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia, an exporter of the violent Wahhabi Islamic ideology, and its deep Saudi ties forced it to declare itself an agent for Saudi Arabia, under the Foreign Agent Registration Act of 1938. Hogan and Hartson/Lovell has also long represented the Clinton Foundation, and it facilitated the recent $25 million Saudi Arabian donation to Hillary, that Trump has called for her to return.

 

The Khan’s son, Capt. Humayun Khan, may have served honorably, but he was not any more of a “hero” than the other 6,834 Americans killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. Given his father’s strong anti-American sentiments, the potential and probability that he would someday and somehow betray America was high, just as so many Muslim Americans serving in the U.S. Armed Forces have previously done. From Nidal Hassan to Ali Mohammed, the triple agent who penetrated the John F. Kennedy Warfare Center at Ft. Bragg, I addressed this problem in ‘The Muslim U.S. Military Experience‘ (November 2011) in similar fashion to Michelle Malkin’s August 3rd ‘Not All Muslim Soldiers Are Equal‘.

 

Having Khizr Khan, an Islamofascist, wave a pocket Constitution at the Democratic National Convention doesn’t automatically suspend our immigration laws or require America to relinquish its sovereign right to determine who is permitted entry into our country. By this same logic, the fear induced tears of a little Hispanic girl, a direct result of Progressive propaganda and fear-mongering, should not be allowed to hold all America hostage to Progressive open borders policies.

 

Trump may not be liked by some. But I’ll vote for Trump, “the imperfect vessel”, over Hillary, “the overflowing chamber pot”, because he will eradicate most of Obama and Hillary’s nation destroying policies.

 

I witness anti-Trump. pro-Bernie and pro-Hillary radicals across the nation burning the American flag. I witness the Islamic State flag waving openly in Ferguson, Missouri. I witness the Hispanic racist fascists of LA RAZA waving the Mexican flag, as they bludgeon young white men unconscious from San Diego to San Jose — pelting one young white woman exiting a Trump rally with eggs and bottles. I see the sudden appearance of honor killings and hijabs across America. I recall the most devastating terrorist attack in world history on September 11th, 2001, followed by Ft. Hood, Boston, Chattanooga, San Bernardino and Orlando. And I enter the voting booth and cast my vote for Donald Trump, in order to ensure that America has a fighting chance to be the America that Our Founders envisioned.

CII Curtail Women’s Rights


No Women's Right Pakistan

Intro to ‘CII Curtail Women’s Rights

Originalist Primer on American Religious Liberty

 

Edited by John R. Houk

May 31, 2016

 

 

This is the first time I have read Shamim Mahmood (Masih) write an op-ed article which openly is critical of Islam. I admire his courage but he has just embarked on a dangerous path in Pakistan where the Blasphemy Law is used as a tool to persecute Christians and other religious minorities with often fabricated accusations of insulting Islam and the pseudo-prophet Mohammed.

 

First Shamim addresses the legislative advice of the Council of Islamic Ideology which recommended essentially to chattelize women on all stratospheres of life which includes Muslims, Christians, Hindus and etc. Then pulls some essential understanding Quranic suras that tell Muslims how to treat Christians.

 

Then Shamim criticizes the CII as a contradiction of religious liberty found in America’s First Amendment:

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (AMENDMENT IThe Heritage Guide to The Constitution)

 

I emphasized the clause of the First Amendment that addresses Religious Liberty. Shamim has read the interpretation of the First Amendment based on the Living Constitution Separation of Church and State. With the persecution that Christians suffer in Pakistan I can understand Shamim’s excitement about separating Church and State in totality. I am certain he doesn’t understand the repercussions of total separation.

 

I stand with the Originalist interpretation of the Constitution which can only be changed by a Constitutional Amendment. The Living Constitution crowd have allowed the Supreme Court of the United States to change constitutional meanings according to America’s Leftist interpretation of the way cultural mores have evolved and the way Christian memes have slowly been disallowed. America’s Left has been making huge strides in diminishing the influence of Christianity in the USA. This Christian diminishment has ended prayer in schools, ended prayers in public forums (e.g. City government or Public School sports events), removed icons of Western rule of Law such as removing the Ten Commandments from Courthouses, disallowing symbols of Christmas on taxpayer supported public property, disallowing Christmas parties or pageants forcing a name change to Winter festival or celebration, even High School Valedictorian speakers are forbidden to than Jesus for the Lord’s influence in their life and on and on! This has been the curse of the Living Constitution concept has brought upon America.

 

Originalist interpretation correctly does NOT Church and State BUT rather prevents the State to establish a State Religion or Church. Meaning religion (the Founding Fathers envisioned CHRISTIANITY) can influence the State BUT the State can make zero legislation forcing religion or people to worship the way the State wants you to worship. The only position the State has with religion is to protect people to worship as they please or to not worship at all if a person or people choose atheism. THIS IS ORIGINAL INTENT RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN AMERICA.

 

American Originalists emphasize that NO WHERE in the Constitution or the First Amendment that the wording of “Separation of Church and State” exists. Rather the First Amendment Clauses No establishment of religion (aka Disestablishment Clause) and that religion can be freely exercised without Federal government interference.

 

From an American Conservative Christian perspective, I felt the necessity to explain the controversy in American Religious Liberty between Church/State Separatists and Disestablishment Church Originalists.

CII Curtail Women’s Rights

CII Allowed Men to Beat Women

 

By Shamim Mahmood

Sent: 5/29/2016 2:00 PM

 

Shamim Masih: Few days back, Islamic constitutional body, Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) [Wikipedia] has proposed its own women protection bill, recommending ‘a light beating’ for the wife if she defies the husband. This recommendations spark outrage though the CII chairman soften the tone stating ‘violence’ is not permissible in Islam. As he believes that light beating does not mean violence.

 

Earlier CII rejected Punjab’s controversial Protection of Women against Violence Act (PPWA) [“Women’s Protection Bill — A case of men’s insecurities”; Dawn; 5/12/16 01:35PM] terming it un-Islamic and drafted its own bill and will now forward to the Punjab Assembly. However, the parliament is not bound to consider its recommendations. The 20-members CII proposed that a husband should be allowed to ‘lightly’ beat his wife if she defies his commands and refuse to dress up as per his desires; turns down demand of intercourse without any religious excuse or does not take bath after intercourse or menstrual periods. The bill also suggested that beating is also permissible if a woman does not observe Hijab; interacts with strangers; speaks loud enough that she can easily be heard by strangers; and provides monetary support to people without taking consent of her spouse.

 

In a bill of 163-pages there are several bans on women, like a ban on co-education after primary educations, a ban on women from taking part in military combat, a ban on welcoming foreign delegations, interacting with males and making recreational visits with ‘Na-Mehram’ (not known [Possible meaning from Wikipedia]). Female nurses should not be allowed to take care of male patients and women should be banned from working in advertisements etc.…. The CII is a powerful body because of its influence on the political system in Pakistan. It advises the Pakistani legislature whether laws are in line with the teachings of Islam.

 

I don’t know for how long blasphemy laws allow me to speak about Islam or its teaching, but let me tell you; there is difference between women, children and minorities rights and Islamic permission. There are no equal rights for women and other minorities residing in a nation in which the Quran and Sharia Law define culture and society and its rule of law. Women’s rights given in Islam are the same as recommended by CII. Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Iran are clear examples and so much so Pakistan is another Sunni Dominated Islamic country inspired by Saudi Arabia.

 

A Muslim apologist usually says that Islam is religion of peace and provides the rights for women, children and for the people of the Book like Christians and Jews. The Council must have given Islamic references in support of these recommendations. And I am giving few quotes from Quran about how Islam deal with other minorities, which one of my U.S. friends quoted.

 

Quotes of Quran from “The Quran and Christianity” (6/23/16):

 

In the Quran, Christians are generally referred to as “people of the book” and then in the various suras and ayahs (or chapters and verses) a number of references are made. In 2:120, “Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you till you follow their religion. Say: ‘Verily, Islamic Guidance is the only Guidance. And if you were to follow their desires after what you have received of Knowledge, then you would have against Allah neither any protector nor helper.”

In 3:56: “As to those who disbelieve, I will punish them with a severe torment in this world and in the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.” In 3:85: “And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.” In 3:118: “O you who believe! Take not as your helpers or friends those outside your religion since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed we have made plain to you the verses if you understand.”

3:178 states: “And let not the disbelievers think that our postponing of their punishment is good for them. We postpone the punishment only so that they may increase in sinfulness. And for them is a disgracing torment”. Hardly encouraging for the basis for a peaceful co-existence and a comfortable pluralism. Muslim love of the Quran that tells them to physically coerce non-Muslims through humiliation to convert or to kill them if they insult Islam or its prophet Mohammad is a dooms day promise toward Christians and other religious minorities in Pakistan.

 

CII recommendations could rightly be according to Islam but legislature is not bound to obey it. Religions are one’s own dealing with his creator but State deals with every individual’s matter and have to protect every citizen. Today, anyone can construct a mosque, synagogue or temple in the U.S. or any Christian majority country and can worship according to his faith but not in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Even if someone says that the constitution of Pakistan protects the rights of minorities but on the ground the situation is totally different, Jews cannot even proclaim their faith in Pakistan. And we are witness to the number of attacks on churches and temples and on minorities in the country.

 

Decades back, Christian majority countries have separated Church from the State matters. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution includes a clause that calls for the separation of church and state. Many people now espouse the belief that American government was designed to include “an impenetrable wall” separating church and state. The Reason would have been the same [for] the domination of religious leadership supervision over the state matters. One should learn a lesson from history, and may be tomorrow we will come up with the conclusion to do so, if we want to survive.

 

Be Blessed,

Sharia and Kafirs


Jihad Code - We blow you up toon

Here is a teaching moment from Bill Warner on Sharia and Kafirs. In case you are unfamiliar with Political Islam, Sharia is the law of Islam and Kafir is the Islamic word for a non-Muslim unbeliever. That is the simple description for Kafir. The Islamic word is actually quite demeaning toward non-Muslims like you and I.

Sharia and Kafirs

 

By Bill Warner

May 5, 2016

Political Islam

 

Sharia law is the most important part of Islamic doctrine. Sharia is Islam; Islam is Sharia. Sharia includes law, but it also includes how to raise a family, theology, philosophy and every aspect of daily living. Sharia law includes pronouncements for both Muslims and non-Muslims (Kafirs). Sharia is a manual for a civilization.

 

Sharia does not allow free speech. It is forbidden to make a joke about Mohammed. Blasphemy is forbidden. The US is following Sharia when it allows the UN to determine that Muslim refugees come to America and not Christians.

 

We have Sharia compliant textbooks now in Tennessee. We hesitate to anger Muslims or criticize Islam. In Europe Islamic rape is accepted behavior.

 

Sharia says that our Constitution is manmade and a product of ignorance. Sharia is Allah’s law and must replace all other governments. Countries that adhere to all of Sharia are Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Yemen. Most Islamic nations do not apply all of the Sharia, but it is there when more stringent laws are wanted.

 

All Kafirs are involved in the Sharia; it is just a matter of how much. We should recognize it and resist its expansion in our civilization.

What is Islam?

 

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

 

Our Mission

 

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

Islam’s Trilogy of three sacred texts is the Koran and two books about the life of Mohammed. When the Trilogy is sorted, categorized, arranged, rewritten and analyzed, it becomes apparent that five principles are the foundation of Islam.

 

All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy—KoranSira (Mohammed’s biography) and Hadith (his Traditions).


Most of the Islamic doctrine is political, not religious. Islam is a political ideology.

 

Islam divides the world into Muslims and unbelievers, kafirs.

 

Political Islam always has two different ways to treat kafirs—dualistic ethics. Kafirs can be abused in the worst ways or they can be treated like a good neighbor.

 

Kafirs must submit to Islam in all politics and READ THE REST

Catastrophic Failure. And we keep going


I am on the email list of the World Truth Summit which is organized by Elsa Schieder of Canada. When I get an update I find interesting I like to cross post for my blog readers to digest. Elsa has sent out one such update.

Briefly for those who don’t know, the World Truth Summit gathers prominent Counterjihad experts from the realms of academia, journalism, blogging, politicians and so on. Elsa then provides provides a forum for a video Counterjihad seminar or interview.

This latest update focuses on the Stephen Coughlin book “Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad”. Stephen Coughlin became a bit controversial even before Obama became President in that he was rather unceremoniously released from his Intelligence/Pentagon job that was prominent to inform the U.S. military, Executive Branch Intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies as well as many politicians involved with Congress. Coughlin was the go-to guy for info on what makes Islam and Islamic terrorists tick.

Coughlin ran into problems when prominent Muslims in the same government affiliations began to protest Coughlin’s frank truth telling that obviously did not make Islam look like a religion of peace. Essentially he was fired by simply not renewing his employment contract.

Coughlin penned this in relation to his very important book which I found at Unconstrained Analytics:

 

The time has come to present this case to the American people.

 

I hope to offer to the reader the same quality of information and analysis that has been presented to national security professionals and which has been studiously ignored.

 

  • I will provide the necessary citations to Islamic law, both historical and contemporary, from books written in English for Muslim consumers of Islamic law (also called shariah), and will explain the key principles for interpreting these laws, particularly as they relate to non-Muslims and jihad.

 

  • We will go through, in detail, the Islamic legal concept of abrogation and how it impacts the actions of Muslims who have chosen to wage jihad.

 

  • We will examine the impact of Islamic scholar and Muslim Brotherhood ideologue Sayyid Qutb, and how his understanding of abrogation led to what I call “The Milestone Process,” which guides the performance of jihad for our enemies in the War on Terror.

 

  • We will discuss what is called the “Islamic Movement” and how the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and other groups oriented on the Milestone Process view themselves as unified by varying degrees against us.

 

  • We’ll examine the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation and see how their understanding of themselves as a kind of “Proto-Caliphate” may be accurate, even though our decision makers don’t even know they exist.

 

  • With this understanding of the rules and the players achieved, we’ll discuss how each of these groups works in accordance with Islamic law as they understand it, to the great detriment of those who fail to recognize the threat they pose.

 

  • We’ll examine the postmodern world of American national security policymaking, where fidelity to political correctness, the need for “balance,” and standards that put assumptions and social science theories before facts have left us dangerously exposed.

 

  • And we will examine how our failure to understand these factors has repeatedly led to tragedy and real loss of life, leaving America vulnerable to those who wish to destroy us.

 

I hope to show that returning to traditional standards of threat analysis—bolstered by common-sense professional standards and grounded in the obligations we have to support and defend the Constitution—will enable us once again to know our enemies and develop methods to defeat them.

Catastrophic Failure. And we keep going

Do I have anything to say that I haven’t said before?

There’s a book I’ll recommend: Stephen Coughlin’s Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad.

The general outline has nothing new – for example, you’re not allowed to change anything from the Quran. Almost everyone knows that. But there are masses of details I didn’t know – such as, Islam has a triple lock system, like a maximum security prison. Lock one (as stated): if it’s in the Quran, and not abrogated, that’s the way things have to be forever. Lock two: if it’s become part of Sharia, whether or not it’s in the Quran, it must stand forever. Lock three: if Islamic scholars have agreed on something, whether or not it’s in the Quran or in Sharia, it must never be re-opened for questioning.

The first lock is enough to convince me that Islam is not open to reform – because to do so, you go against the Quran, and the punishment for that is murder. But then, two more locks. Heavy metal doors clang shut.

How do I feel about the triple-lock system? It’s good stuff to know – or we invite even more catastrophic failure.

What am I getting from Catastrophic Failure? Most of the time I act from knowing, with my head, that it’s vital to act against Islamization in its many forms. Reading this book makes me feel, on a gut level, how vital it is to do all we can.

How does Coughlin keep going, I also wonder. Before Obama, he was briefing top people in the American military, FBI, CIA. Now he’s an outsider – and he has kept going, doing, reaching anyone he can – with online videos, speaking engagements, and his powerful book.

It’s so important to be able to keep going, when the forces against us are gaining ground, sometimes massively – as has happened in Europe this past year with the mass influx of Islamics – and as is currently happening in Canada with the new pro-Islam prime minister.

This isn’t a story – like Star Wars, where we know that, somehow or other, all will be well in the end (until the next episode). This is life. The outcome isn’t set in stone. Even what happens next isn’t set in stone. Lots of surprises along the way – including good ones, like the emergence of Trump.

Anyway, today, not much to say. Except, as always, that it’s time to continue, to keep going and doing.

All the best to all of us who care and dare,

Elsa
