In Pakistan, Islamic fundamentalism is on the rise, and some say that has resulted in the conviction and imprisonment of hundreds of people under the countries blasphemy laws. At least thirty of those convicted have been killed by vigilantes, but Pakistani officials have failed to arrest anyone for those murders.ShareThis
The West has been misled by both foreign and domestic enemies to believe Islam is compatible with democratic thought, but in truth it is not. It is a political ideology that seeks submission and control, and given that ideology it is the antithesis of free thought and free will, which are the underpinnings of our Western way of life. Moreover, Islamists seek the conquest of the world under the black Islamic flag. In short, they seek either our submission or demise, not peaceful co-existence.
In Europe, Islamists are becoming increasingly vocal about their intentions and less inclined to hide their vitriol toward the European countries that have fostered Muslim immigration. Americans should be paying attention to what is going on in Europe, because the Islamists are honing their message and sharpening their skills there, preparing for what they hope will be their world domination.ShareThis
It is common for a woman in an abusive relationship to make excuses for the man that subjugates her. The problem is compounded when the perpetrator of the abuse can point to religious text that supports his abuse. It is what happens too often in Islam.
Tragically, Muslim women (a group targeted for abuse by Islamic fascists) are increasingly being used in jihadist attacks as suicide bombers.
Using women to carry out jihadist attacks fits the mindset of the Islamic-fascists in the Taliban and Al-Qaeda . Women are expendable to them. Moreover, as the photo here shows, the burqa easily covers terrorist equipment, allowing the carrier easy access to public areas.ShareThis
Our media worked overtime to convince the world that a quest for democratic freedoms was what stirred the hearts of revolutionaries in Egypt. Obama and his State Department played a part in the drama by fanning the flames of the revolution, as if there was an actual chance that democracy could flourish in Islamic Egypt when democracy has failed so miserably in Islamic Iraq and Islamic Afghanistan.
Why did the Media attempt to sell such a cockamamie story and why was the Obama administration involved?
We know the nature of Islam to be undemocratic. Islam brands non-Muslims as inferior to Muslims, and one would have to be living under a rock not to know that women are treated as second class citizens in Islam. Moreover, being a Muslim male isn’t enough to guarantee freedom to a man, as we know from watching Shiites and Sunnis kill each other over the years. Finally, there is the unsavory aspect of Islam and slavery that still happens even today.

FDR would be against Obama’s support of collective bargaining for government workers.
Many children don’t understand how a check works. They think it is a magic piece of paper and don’t understand what their parents are doing when they sign it. Their misunderstanding leads to conversations like this:
Child: Mommy, buy me this, Puleeze.
Mom: Honey, I can’t, not this time. Money is short this week.
Child: Oh-h-h, Pul-eeze, PUL-E-E-ZE! You don’t need money, Mommy; write a check…
This mindset isn’t reserved to checks; children have the same misunderstanding of the plastic cards daddy and mommy carry with them. For children, there is a disconnect between the use of the plastic and/or the use of checks and the actual money, and an even bigger disconnect between what they regard as magic tools and the actual human labor and sacrifice involved in making those tools credible. (Bank fees and interest rates are totally beyond their reach.)
Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner testified before the Senate yesterday and was questioned by Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama).
Sessions pointed out that President Obama’s budget – the one that Geithner signed off on – contains interest payments and other obligations that are “excessively high” and “unsustainable.”
Geithner agreed. (You read that right, he agreed.)
While our Media was waxing poetic about the “freedom fighters” in Egypt, they really didn’t do their homework. They never asked, “Freedom to do what?”

Thousands of classified American cables obtained by the WikiLeaks website detail the international struggle to stop the spread of weapon-grade nuclear, chemical and biological material around the globe.
On February 1, The Daily Telegraph began to detail what it had learned through its analysis of the leaked documents, in particular the fact that al Qaeda is on the verge of producing radioactive weapons after sourcing nuclear material and recruiting rogue scientists to build "dirty" bombs.
According to leaked diplomatic documents, we have been warned that Jihadi groups are close to producing "workable and efficient" biological and chemical weapons that could kill thousands if unleashed in attacks on the West.
Like things aren’t really bad enough...
The following video of an ABC news affiliate in San Diego highlights a current story on the San Diego Port Authority:
A Rasmussen Poll released on February 7th showed that 58% of Americans favor repeal of Obamacare; 56% say the cost of healthcare will go up because of it; and 52% say the quality of healthcare will get worse because of it. Looks like Americans don’t particularly like the new healthcare legislation.
On the other hand, Progressives are on record saying that Obamacare will create new jobs. Just before the final vote on the Obamacare bill, Nancy Pelosi even said:
“It’s about jobs. In its life, [Obamacare bill] will create 4 million jobs — 400,000 jobs almost immediately.”
Oops, Nancy told a whopper!
It turns out that the Congressional Budget Office never supported her view. During a House Budget Committee meeting on February 10th, Congressional Business Office Director Douglas Elmendorf said that the bill will not create jobs.
Worse yet, in his testimony in front of the committee, Elmendorf made a disturbing announcement. He said he expects Obamacare to actually eliminate 800,000 jobs, that number is equal to every job in Delaware and South Dakota.
He explained it this way:
The FLOTUS has been taking hits for the fat food menu served at the White House Super Bowl Party, because she lectures us on our eating habits and the size of our fat behinds. They have a point, up to a point. (People don’t like to be repeatedly told they’re fat, unhealthy, and headed for a heart attack— even if it’s true.)
Maybe our FLOTUS should add something new to her plate, and I’m not talking food. Maybe it’s time for her to seize a headline issue that could use the talents of a Harvard graduate with a law degree. As a Chicago native, she already knows something about the issue of failing schools and the students who fall through the cracks because of them. Michelle Obama strikes me as a woman, who is both tough enough and smart enough to change things for parents like Ohio mother of two, Kelley Williams-Bolar.
The Muslim Brotherhood? Any fool can google and find out the Muslim Brotherhood is a threat to our Western way of life, so why are so many in the media not telling the truth? Why would people in a free press in a free society support them?
If you find that disturbing, the next one is worse.
On January 22, I posted a story called Fascist Hate Freedom: The Canadian Iranium Story. The controversy surrounding Iranium the movie is now being covered by more American blogs and some news outlets.
The Iranium controversy is a story that revolves around political correctness and the desire to stifle free speech in Canada. People see what foes of free speech tried to do by stopping the showing of a film in Canada as an extension of the political correctness nonsense that has conquered the minds and voices of too many elected leaders in Western countries.
Fortunately In Canada, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore supported democratic principles and Western freedoms, so the movie entitled Iranium was shown yesterday in Ottawa, Canada.
Our media plays us like a fine tooth comb, but the following video clip should make you realize things are not always as they seem in the Middle East.
The photo above is of an umbrella cockatoo named Dusty from Antigo, Wisconsin. Dusty is a Packers fan. Green Bay fans are really loyal and never shy about voicing their commitment to the Packers. Dusty is no different and even sings “I love the Green Bay Packers.”
Since the Packers are America’s new Super Bowl Champs after their 31-25 victory over the Steelers, it seems fitting to recognize them and their fans. What better way than to watch Dusty in action?ShareThis
Islam & Democracy
The American media and its ubiquitous analysts are increasingly splitting into two camps over the Egyptian revolt. The loudest camp sees the revolution as a wonderful expression of "people-power" that will naturally bloom (“poof”) into a democracy.
Americans should take a collective step back from that view. Knowing what happened with the West’s attempts to create democracies in both Iraq and Afghanistan should make us view events in Egypt with a more jaundiced eye.
From their self-immolations, Afghan woman let us know they’d rather be dead than alive in their homeland with the Taliban in control, as it is now under “democratic” rule. Christians have left Iraq in droves to escape the persecution that “democracy” has brought them, despite the fact that they lived relatively peaceful lives under Saddam Hussein.
Democracies are more than guaranteeing democratic elections. They can only thrive with the bedrock of Western principles that make them possible. They cannot survive without that bedrock. Islam has shown in both Afghanistan and Iraq that it can’t tolerate a democracy, because it does not allow the freedom of other religions and abhors the Western principles that form the basis for democracy.
It is a catch 22.
When President Barack Obama spoke at the 2009 memorial for Fort Hood victims, he called the killing of American troops on our soil “incomprehensible”, which fairly described the thinking of most Americans toward the Texas massacre that killed 13 unarmed people and wounded 32 others.
As information about Fort Hood began to leak out in the months that followed, however, Americans began to realize there was more to the story and that perhaps it could have been prevented.
Some Americans even began to wonder if the White House was hiding something. Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and ranking Republican Susan Collins (R-Maine) even threatened to take the Obama Administration to court over its refusal to release information during a US Senate investigation of Fort Hood.
Today, the Senate panel led by Lieberman confirmed that the 2009 Fort Hood Massacre that killed 13 people and wounded 32 others could have been prevented. Its report blames the FBI and Department of Defense for failing to recognize or act on Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s radical Islamist views. The report faults both the DOD and the FBI for not disciplining or discharging him before the attack occurred.
The UK’s hate-spewing Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary has been in the news for about ten years. Choudary has no formal Islamic qualifications, but he calls himself a “Sharia judge”.
Choudary, a native-born Brit of Pakistani heritage, once lead the Islamic Fascist group Al-Muhajiroun that was banned by the UK in 2004. Al-Muhajiroun called the 9/11 bombers The Magnificent 19.
The organization was linked to Asif Hanif, the 2003 British suicide bomber who blew himself up outside a supermarket in Tel Aviv in 2003. It was also linked to what Brit authorities call the “fertilizer bomb plot.” The plotters of that terrorist scheme planned hits on a shopping center and a nightclub in the UK, but they were fortunately shutdown before that plan could be carried out.
The years haven’t softened Choudary and more than a few Brits (Muslim and non-Muslims alike) see the 42 year-old self-promoter as the “most hated man in Britain,” a description that he works to promote. He likes the attention his notoriety brings him.ShareThis
The Progressives have had their way. As we watch the fall of Egypt and perhaps Jordan, many of us are having flashbacks to the toppling of Iran and Jimmy Carter's dhimmitude when dealing with all things marked Islamic Supremacy. It isn't a good memory, and it will be joined by others we are watching this week.
If the Middle East becomes lead by hardline Islamic Supremists tied to Iran, can an Islamic Caliphate be far behind? It's an Interesting question that should be on all our minds.
Remember his speech in Cairo? Turn on the tellie and see if you can catch some film on what is happening in Egypt today. Maybe we can all watch his "historic" Cairo speech together. Here it is for your viewing enjoyment, just in case you have forgotten the scope of his hubris:
On second thought, scratch that; once was more than enough.ShareThis
No group has taken responsibility as yet for the suicide bombing at Domodedovo airport, but dozens of Internet surfers, writing in Russian, have praised the suicide bomber on the unofficial Islamist site called kavkazcenter.com.
What’s wrong with this White House? Why is it that Americans have to be embarrassed by our efforts at diplomacy?
Today Drudge posted an article written by someone with a doctorate that discusses the impact of Obama's submissive bow to Wu, and the Progressives were over there this morning trying to whitewash the episode.
Suffice to say, we will never get over Obama’s bowing to dictators and Communists, but that is old news. Most of us have made peace with his sycophantic head bobs. We know he knows we hate it, but he has decided to thumb his nose at us and bow anyway, any chance he gets.
We’ve learned to smile at his arrogant disregard of our feelings on the matter. We’ve mentally marked the first Tuesday of November in 2012. She/he, who laughs last, laughs best, and payback is a gender-neutral bitch.
Some events recently happened in Canada that should be a wakeup call to all democratic societies and their citizens. The events revolve around democratic principles like access to information and freedom of speech.
When our enemies are able to curtail the Western way of life and force changes that suit their theocratic mindset, it doesn’t matter where it’s happening; we need to seriously consider the ramifications. If our enemies are successful in one place with a particular course of action, they will repeat their efforts elsewhere. Forewarned is forearmed.

The photo to the left is of Alya; she is a British Muslim girl, who has decided not to wear the hijib (head scarf). She thought about the matter long and hard for more than two years, before finally removing it. Her immediate family supported her decision.
Unfortunately, for Alya, her extended family has a different take on the matter. The photo on the right is of her cousin, Mohamad; he delivered their ultimatum, which is basically wear the hijib or die.
They kill out of wedlock babies in Pakistan; for some reason when they find the little corpses, most of them are girls.
They drown some of the tiny babies in the sewers; some others are abandoned in garbage dumps, where it usually takes a couple of days for the innocents − alone and unattended with no food or water− to pass.
An Iman actually issued a fatwa against one tiny newborn recently. He said the baby had to be stoned; and of course, since Islam is basically a cult of brainwashed /persecuted followers, it was the final experience the tiny infant encountered during its short life.
Sometimes you read a story, and you can’t help but wonder why people didn’t anticipate the scenario happening before they got involved; it is a kind of look before you leap lesson.
