The Pledge: 2020

“I pledge allegiance to the Fear, 

that Corona Virus brings, 

and to the new Order

for which it pines,

One narrative, oversold,

with suspicion and distrust for all.”





Democratic Socialism

15 06 2019

220px-Brodskiy's_LeninVladimir Lenin was quietly but quick to point out that the only way to establish Socialism is at the end of a gun, via government, a seemingly antithetical method to creating the “globalist, borderless, and equitable “ society that Marxists dream of. The problem is human nature requires authoritarian government in the absence of a self-governing morality, which is usually religious in nature.

As Speaker of the House Robert Winthrop once said, “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the Word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet.”

Daniel Webster said, “Whatever makes men good Christians also makes them good citizens.”

Do you think it’s a mere accident that Socialism is moving in to fill the void left by abandoning God and the Bible as the source of moral moorings? Ever ask yourself the question of why “the Greatest Generation” was so great?

They were mostly poor farm kids who grew up in the most economical challenged time in our history, and no, they were not all committed Christians, but they had a moral foundation that was Biblically rooted, most attended religious services at least sometimes, and had those basic civil lessons affirmed at home, school, in government, and society in general.

This “new” brand of “Democratic Socialism” is only new to those who are ignorant of history, and without coercion it will not succeed. Marx knew that, Lenin knew it, and so did Stalin, Mao, Castro, Chavez, Che, and Kim.

You want a revolution? Really?

Democratic Socialism: Recycling a Bad Idea

10 09 2018

Upton Sinclair was an American author, very popular in the early 20th Century. He was a Progressive, after the mold of many, such as Wilson, Jack Reed (assisted Lenin and the Bolsheviks-he is buried on Red Square), Margaret Sanger, etc. of that era, and founded the California chapter of the ACLU.

His unsuccessful political career included a run for Congress on the Socialist Party ticket, and also for the Governors office on the Democratic ticket, where his greatest success was with his “End Poverty in California” (EPIC) campaign, although not great enough to win him the mansion. On reflection of his political career, in the late 1950’s, he mused, “American’s will take Socialism, they just won’t take the name…we have to outflank them.”

It is with that as a backdrop I make the following comments, related to this meme of Bernie Sanders, self declared Democratic Socialist.Image may contain: one or more people and text

I submit to you that the Progressive and “Social Justice Warrior” rhetoric against “old, white, misogynistic, chauvanistic and racist men” has more to do with marginalizing opposition and advancing the Democratic Socialist ideology than any of the aforementioned disparaging accusations.

You don’t get any older, or whiter, or manly (ok, maybe more manly) than Bernie. But hey, I give Bernie kudos for having the cajones to wear the brand!

In 2016 (according to that right wing rag, the Washington Post), twice as many voters under 30 yrs. old voted for the Democratic Socialist than for Clinton or Trump combined! (Clinton-766k, Trump-828K, Sanders-2M+)

If that’s not concerning enough, think of it this way: The Democratic Socialist candidate got 63% of that voting block compared to Hillary’s 37%. Worried yet? Wait there’s more!

Vladimir Lenin was vaulted to power by the Bolsheviks in 1917 Russia. Lenin called himself a Democratic Socialist, and their party was the “Socialist Democratic Labor Party”.

Now the situation in Russia was a bit more drastic in early 20th Century than here, now, but the language/rhetoric being used is exactly the same. Lenin capitalized on what he labeled as “Polyezni”, or “useful idiots”, to gain power, and then to carry out the next step, which was to basically marginalize, then eliminate his opposition. (I’ll not get into the gory details; you can look up “Red Terror policy”.)

Lenin said, “Communism is the end of Socialism”, or perhaps more generally translated, “The goal of Socialism is Communism”. The declared enemy of the Socialist Democrats is the “Bourgeoisie”, the Middle Class, those Capitalist business owners who own the greater percentage of wealth, both then and now.

It looks like an ever increasing portion of American voters are now willing to own the brand of “Socialist”, and judging by many of the candidates being nominated for the upcoming mid-term elections, it seems the old guard Democrats, those old Truman and Kennedy supporters, are losing ground within the party. In fact, based on this trend and some of the new Socialist nominees commentary, Truman and Kennedy would not be welcome in today’s Democrat Party. (Heck, they’d actually be in the right half of the Republican Party today!)

I leave you with this famous quote from the greatest British Premier of my lifetime, Lady Thatcher:

“Socialism works great, until you run out of other people’s money.”





The Revolution has Begun

24 02 2017

This post was originally published in 2012 by the title “The Coming Revolution”. Updates have been added where appropriate.

I have said for 20 years that the next American Revolution or Civil War will be started by the Left. Today, more than ever, that belief has solidified and is fast becoming apparent. In February of 2012 I wrote: “In my opinion, the next elected President will either be George Washington or Joseph Stalin. In surveying the field of candidates at this point, I see no George Washington. However, “Joe” could already be in office and consolidating his power.”

George was not to be found in 2016 either. However, the candidate chosen was definitely not in the mold of the sitting President, or any preceding for that matter, and a result of a cumulative effort by media, an embedded Leftist agenda in government, education, and party elites continuing the move toward collectivism in the United States of America.

The Bolsheviks are inside the gates and the near objective is the death of “capitalism”. In 2012 Occupy Wall Streeter’s (OWS) were chanting for the death of capitalism. (Heck, they were chanting for the deaths of CEO’s, cops, and tea partiers, with some of them advocating the return of the guillotine.)

In 2014 this movement was transferred to another radical group founded by Marxist revolutionaries, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi, which they called #Black Lives Matter. Garza is a Marxist political activist who’s heroes include the Marxist revolutionary, former Black Panther, and convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur. Garza is likewise a great admirer of Angela Davis (Communist Party USA and former Black Panther). Cullors has ties to the 60’s revolutionary terrorist group, Weather Underground, and led 600 Black Lives Matter protesters to Ferguson, MO in 2014 following the death of Michael Brown after he struggle with a police officer, trying to take his weapon. (For an itemized account of the resulting $5 Million in damage click here.)

All three BLM founders share a Marxist ideology frsologoand work for front groups of the “Freedom Road Socialist Organization” (FRSO), a self-proclaimed “revolutionary socialist and Marxist-Leninist organization” which touts itself as a “new Communist movement” with its roots in the 60’s and 70’s revolutionary groups; groups like the League of Revolutionary Struggle, the Revolutionary Union, the Communist Labor Party, the October League, the Communist Workers Party, the Black Workers Congress, just to name a few. The FRSO website is wide open about its intentions, nothing covert there, and touts Communist revolutionaries including Mao Zedong, arguably the worst mass murderer in history killing 70 million in his takeover of China.  (To read more on this and related organizations click here.)

But do not be mistaken. This movement is not about race. It is pure ideology. Without a victim class, real or perceived, revolutions can’t get off the ground, and if victims cannot be found, they will be produced.

In 2015 the revolution moved to the university campus.  Disruptions occurred in a highly organized manner at most major colleges, all with the same theme of “social justice”,  removal of law enforcement, and other demands including the suppression of open debate.  Freedom of speech died on the American college campus.

While the movement is reminiscent of the 1960’s-70’s radical revolutionary movement which paralleled, then infiltrated and co-opted a legitimate civil rights movement, this is even more serious, more deadly, and more dangerous than that.  More dangerous in that the radicals have been allowed to infiltrate every institution, and are now in the chief seats of power.  More serious because during the 50’s and 60’s there was legitimate need for civil rights reform in both American society and in government.  More deadly in that the stability of American society has been successfully fragmented over the last 40 years due to multiculturalism and pluralism, and with unchecked immigration policies over the last few years.  The great “melting pot” of American culture has become a TV dinner, divided, cold, and hardened to critical thinking and introspection, and identity politics rules the day.

History proved the Bolsheviks to be mere pawns in the eventuality of Stalin’s rise to power against even Lenin’s wishes, and many of them perished in Stalin’s “purges”.

Collectivism

There is an ideology that has been around in America for a long time now, but has never had the momentum and support from our institutions that it currently enjoys. That ideology is collectivism. It has existed in varying degrees around the world in political movements like socialism, communism, and fascism. In its mild form it opposes capitalism, seeks to redistribute wealth, limit private property ownership, all through government regulation. (“Social Justice” is another term that is frequently used by collectivists.) This is “social democracy”. We are becoming very close to that now, if not already there.

Collectivism always puts the group needs before the needs/rights of the individual. The ultimate in a secular collectivist society is Communism, where the government owns or controls everything from food production to education. It manages information flow through news media, the arts, and academia. The duty of each citizen is to the state. The natural result of this philosophy is the weak perish, and the middle class disappears. The ultimate goal of total equality is nearly met, and for all the rhetoric of “social justice”, well…everyone lives in poverty except the ruling elite.

Islam is another collectivist society in which the rights/needs of the individual are not important, but demands each citizen serve the collective in order to maintain it. The only practical difference between Islam and Communism is that Islam is a theocracy, in which all aspects of life and society are controlled by the ideology, dispensed upon the collective, by the collective, if a theocratic government is not available.  This is why Islam has allied itself with the American Left, a curious alliance indeed.  Again, the middle class is virtually none existent, while the ruling elite prosper.

America, conversely, was never set up to be collectivist in its ideology. The founding documents, The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were designed to protect the rights of the individual from the state. The stark difference from America and the rest of the world is that our Declaration points out that “all men are created equal” and are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,–That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” [Emphasis added]

See, America was never intended to be a “Top Down” authoritarian government. It is not a Democracy, where the mob rules, but a Representative Republic, governed by law instituted by the People, and Representatives of their own choosing. In the words of Lincoln, “government of the People, by the People, and for the People.”

America has always been about the Liberty of Mankind to choose his own destiny, his responsibility to his God, and his duty to preserve these things for his descendants and his fellow citizens. It has proven that the success of the collective depends upon the liberty of the individual. When the individual is allowed to prosper and flourish, the community prospers together. That was the difference between the early Colonies of Jamestown and Plymouth. Jamestown had been a “collectivist” or communal endeavor in which all property was held in common and all needs came from the common purse, or storehouse. This leads to the “freeloaders” who contribute little or nothing and consume as much as everyone else. Jamestown died. Plymouth began as such but William Bradford recognized the flawed system and allotted a parcel of land to each family to provide for their own needs and any surplus could be sold or given to a neighbor. Capitalism.

It is commonly misunderstood among the “Social Justice” crowd and many average Americans, that charity is squelched by capitalism. Quite the contrary, capitalism begets charity, especially when the prosperous citizen believes in his Creator and therefore has a sense of duty to his fellow-man which always results in a higher rate of contribution to community than an over reaching government taking from the prosperous and “redistributing the wealth” because the government requires its cut for inefficient administrative bureaucracy.

An authoritarian government can never create a benevolent citizenry. It can only dispossess its citizens to meet its own needs. A benevolent citizenry is created by allowing that society to prosper from within, to the point of plenty, when then by the dictates of conscience, not government, each person may choose charity, thereby raising the standard of living for all. William Bradford proved it out.

The argument could easily be made that “Godless Capitalism” is evil. I would not disagree; but would remind you that “Godless anything” is evil, including Godless Government, Godless Politicians, Godless Education, Godless Finance, and Godless Media. But the striking thing here is this: Those who are decrying the evils of “Godless Capitalism” are of the very persuasion that ejected God from our institutions!!

Revolution Requires Chaos

If you haven’t picked up Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” by now, you simply must read it, although it will nearly be a review of the last 8 years. Professor Barack Obama, our past Chief Community Organizer, taught Alinsky’s methods to his students. Alinsky’s fundamental premise is found on page 116, “The first step in community organization is community disorganization. The disruption of the present organization is the first step towards community organization.” He then advises the organizer, When you are labeled an “an agitator, they are completely correct, for that is, in one word, your function—to agitate to the point of conflict.”(p. 117)

Alinsky only left out one piece of the puzzle. What to do with what you break. Breaking the targeted system is easy; rebuilding something that is productive isn’t. But his acknowledgment at the beginning of the book should have given us a clue. To: “…the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.”

America stands at the most pivotal point in her history since the Kansas-Nebraska Act (which resulted in the Civil War). We are polarized. We are factionalized. Our history has been rewritten to minimize the importance of our Judeo-Christian foundation. Our institutions have been purged of morality that comes from that foundation. Our language is adulterated with vulgarities which are most commonplace in our youth. Our youth have been hijacked by powers that redefine what family is and strip them of any faith in God that was instilled as a child, and replaced with a collectivist philosophy, “from each according to ability, to each according to need”. That’s Karl Marx, by the way. It’s also most of the leadership in the current American Democrat Party, unions, our education system, and the media, and yes, it’s beginning to take root in the Republican ranks as well.

This did not begin with Barack Obama, and it will not end now that he is out of office.   The Revolutionaries now have a personified objective, a target to rally the followers, most of which are unwitting (Lenin’s term was “Polyezniys” or useful idiots), in Donald Trump.  Vehement protests, fear-mongering, political stonewalling and talk of impeachment within the first 5 weeks is a harbinger for the next four years, unless the unthinkable were to happen, (i.e JFK), and don’t think it is not being discussed in the ranks of the revolution.   Where just a few short months ago, the White House was viewed by the media and the ranks of the revolutionaries as an ally, now it is “public enemy number one“, and if you thought it was popular to protest the Bush administration, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.   It’s already become the new American pastime.  (Hearken back to the Tea Party demonstrations against Obama’s policies, and anyone who protested then was simply a “racist”.  Now, just as with Bush, it’s “patriotic“.)

Even if they were to be successful in removing Mr. Trump from the White House, Mike Pence, a true conservative and a highly principled man, would make an excellent President, but the Revolutionaries won’t like his policies any better than Trump’s. They haven’t stopped to consider that, but it doesn’t matter.  As Alinsky said, “The issue is never the issue; the issue is always the Revolution“.  There is blood in the water, and the frenzy has begun.

Yes, Mr. Obama, I believe you have “fundamentally transformed America”. Made good on that campaign promise. But you can’t take all the credit yourself.  It’s been in the works for a long time.

The Historic lesson? Collectivist revolutions always take you farther than you want to go.

The Spiritual lesson? Godless revolutions always lead straight to Hell….

Where are you George?





Liberty Under the Law

10 02 2017

My lawyer friends tend to agree that Trump’s EO placing the MORATORIUM on the refugee program from only 7 of the 56 Muslim nations will stand in the Supreme Court.

Obviously since there are 49 other Muslim countries not included on the list affected, it is NOT a “Muslim Ban”. Just as obvious is the fact that the order is only temporary – thus doesn’t qualify as a “BAN” on anything.

According to the Federal Statute passed by Congress in 1952 (8 U.S.C. §1182(f)) Congress has given that authority to the Executive. You can find both the statute and the EO anywhere on the net, and yes I have read them both.

Many big-hearted, well meaning folks have been misled by the emotional argument that Republicans and Trump are both anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant as well as racist, mean spirited, ogers who want to starve your grandma, kick your dog and boil your children in cabbage and eat them. (You must first demonize your enemy/opponent in order to get public support.)

The United States of America has been the most welcoming and hospitable recipient of 800px-statue_of_liberty_7immigrants in the world, and has been the “Shining City on a Hill” that the entire world has looked to as the apex of freedom and prosperity, and the most desired country in the world to immigrate to. Millions have successfully sought new opportunity and liberty on her shores, and yes, have thrived and multiplied.

There is also the painful truth that not everyone got through Ellis Island, due to various reasons, but all in the spirit of self-preservation, whether a security risk, disease or character history. There is no natural “right” to the rest of the world to live here. America is not obligated to take everyone and anyone who wishes to migrate here, nor is any other sovereign nation obligated to do such. If you don’t think so, just fly to any country in the world, get off the plane and say “Hi, I am your new neighbor. I will be living here now.” Yet, America has always been the most benevolent of all.  America does not owe the rest of the world anything but to preserve itself as a refuge for those who seek liberty and equality under the law.

When the land behind the great statue looks like the rest of the world, to where will those “huddled masses” flee?

Activist Judges continue to annul the law in favor of a political ideology.  If the Law does not apply to those who make it, or those who interpret it and enforce it, then why will the people adhere to it?  If the Law only applies to some of the People, how long will any of them be contained by it?   What incentive is there for those who are constrained by the Law  to remain submitted unto it?  Have the conspiracy theorists been right all along and we now live under Oligarchy?  Perhaps we now repeat the Old Testament time of the Judges when “every man did that which was right in his own eyes”.   Is the founding principle of “all equal under the Law”, just a passe’ byline?  Maybe Orwell was right – “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”.

Either America is a nation of laws or we aren’t.  If we abandon the rule of law, you can stick a fork in the Statue of Liberty.





Spies, Lies, and Blinded Eyes

The Roots of Revolution

Creed of the Muslim Brotherhood

“Allah is our goal; the Messenger is our guide; the Koran is our law; Jihad is our means; muslim_brotherhood_1 (1)and martyrdom in the way of Allah is our inspiration.”

A paradigm shift is underway in the United States Government.  The 20 plus year influence of the Muslim Brotherhood on government policy and America’s foreign relations concerning Islam will, most likely, be minimalized or at least go dormant for a few years.  It will not go away.

I have written profusely about the Muslim Brotherhood for the last 7 years on this site.  Since the beginning, I have stressed the general point that the Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t care who the President of the United States is, as long as they are allowed access to the White House and Capital Hill.

This relationship began during the Clinton administration, grew immensely during the Bush administration, and reached its highest influence under Barack Hussein Obama, who purged all United States government departments of any linkage of terrorism, or subversive activities, to Islam.  This became crystal clear after the release of the report on the Fort Hood jihadi attack when Major Nidal Hassan went active on November 5, 2009, shooting 43 fellow soldiers, killing 13.  He had printed “Soldier of Allah” on his business cards.  Witnesses said he was yelling “Allahu Akbar” while systematically shooting unarmed personnel, until confronted by a female MP Officer who put 3 rounds of 9mm into him, stopping the attack and paralyzing Hassan from the waist down.

Allah must be pleased that his glorious jihadi was thwarted by a lowly woman…

Hassan was never charged with “terrorism” by the US Army.  In fact, from what I’ve seen, officially the US Army has a hard time even mouthing the words “Islamic Terrorism”.  Hassan was convicted of 13 counts of pre-meditated murder, and 32 counts of attempted murder, and currently awaits execution at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.  The report classified the attack as “workplace violence” and no mention of Islam, Jihad, Terrorism, or Muslim was included in the document.

In spite of Hassan’s own actions and concerns voiced by Army personnel for months leading up to the attack, Army officers and their superiors were either not allowed to take action, or were ignored, because of political correctness and the influence of Muslim Brotherhood groups in the United States.

History

In 1928 the formation of Al Ikhwan Al Muslimun, or “The Muslim Brotherhood” (MB) began a slow, diligent, and determined move by fundamentalist Muslims to influence governments around the world beginning at its birthplace, Egypt. It’s objective, to revive Islam and call Muslims from Jahiliya, “the condition of ignorance”, and re-assert global power and re-establish the Khalifa, that global Caliphate, which was the high point of Islamic civilization from the 7th Century until the fall of the Ottoman Empire after WWI.
There has been a lot of arguing about what the Ikhwan is and what it is not. I prefer to allow it to identify itself. The creed of the Muslim Brotherhood pretty much says it all: “Allah is our goal; the Messenger is our guide; the Koran is our law; Jihad is our means; and martyrdom in the way of Allah is our inspiration.” Anything we add to that mission statement is supplemental.

Another point of clarification could be those who are currently and have been involved in the Brotherhood. Besides Hassan Al-Banna, the founder of MB, the chief narrative has come from Seyyid Qutb, author of Milestones, which was intended to be the vanguard document for global Islamic Revival, returning Muslims to a fundamental adherence to the “one true religion of Allah”. Qutb was very disappointed in his fellow Muslims and declared that they had fallen into a state of ignorance not matched since Muhammad himself had pulled the pagan, idolatrous, Arabs out of “jahili” and into the true place of Islam, “Submission” to Allah.

Qutb repeatedly scolds them for succumbing to Western influences of prosperity, nationalism, and capitalism, and reminds them that the collective, that is the “Ummah”, is priority. It is the Muslim’s duty to bring all governments under Islamic control, as one Islamic Nation of Muslims, and in 1965, Seyyid Qutb was executed for sedition against the government of the United Arab Republic of Egypt.  (The Brotherhood had been an outlaw organization ever since, until the United States government backed them in overthrowing the government in “The Arab Spring” of 2011-2012.)

Unholy Alliance

islaminternThe philosophy of “Collectivism” has been a very attractive attribute of Islam to Socialists, Communists, and Progressives everywhere.  This is, at least one of the two apparent reasons for the consent, even the infatuation, of the American Leftists with the Muslim community, and Islam in general.  The “Collectivist” aspect of Islam has brought Socialists and Islam together since the Bolsheviks in Czarist Russia.  A more modern version of this is “Red Shiism”, which was a Marxist/Islamic ideology in Iran leading up to the 1979 Iranian revolution when it was overpowered by the “Black Shiism” of Ayatollah Khomeini.

The Shari’a, that is the legal system which gives Islam its power, is the skeleton and the muscular mechanism upon which hangs the skin that is the façade of “religion”.  You see, Islam is a socio-political ideology with its own jurisprudence.  The directive of the Shari’a, which emanates from the Quran and the Hadith, is a “One World Order” wherein Islam “reigns supreme” (Sura 2:193).  This world conquest is achieved by Jihad, “Holy War” which, as in all warfare, consists of various aspects, or tactics.

Asymmetrical Warfare

Combat is only one aspect of war.  Islam is no stranger to violent actions of Jihad, but has become very adept at other aspects, such as psychological, political, and litigious, and propaganda warfare tactics.  One such tactic deployed by Islam is deception, known as “Taqiyya”.  It allows, even directs Muslims to lie in order to advance Islam.  The most effective jihad in America has been waged in these latter terms.  Islam learned quickly that Americans don’t like it when you blow up people and knock their buildings down.  But they will readily accept a slick talking, soft spoken guy in a business suit who smiles and shakes their hand, and speaks of things like “tolerance” and “peace” and “social justice”, all the while bemoaning the victimology of Muslims as a minority and advocating for civil rights.  (What self-respecting liberal could resist that, right?)

In the Shari’a “peace” can only exist under Islamic rule, where everyone else is “submitted” (the literal meaning of “Islam”).  “Tolerance” is not in the Shari’a lexicon, and will only exist when those being tolerated, Christians, Jews, etc., are properly subjugated.  (Incidentally, the Shari’a does not tolerate atheism, homosexuality, transgenders, adultery, or fornication (all sex outside marriage).  These deserve the same fate as an apostate-one who leaves Islam- which is death, usually by beheading.  This is why Iranian President Ahmadinejad told the UN a few years ago that Iran does not have homosexuals.  They are hung on the public squares.

Every “Social Justice” movement in the world has origins and common purpose in the destruction of Capitalism, the United States of America, and Western Society in general.  It is Marxism which is Anti-Christian, NOT Anti-Religion; Christianity focuses on the rights, liberties and value of the individual!  This is the sole reason for the success and freedom provided by America for so long.

Individuals do not exist in this post-American World; Only the Collective! (Always remember this!!)

This is the main reason for the weird, and seemingly contradictory alliance, between the radical Left and Islam.  One such scenario was recently played out when a Shari’a promoting Muslima, Linda Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York, and an Obama White House “Champion of Change”, was one of four lead organizers of the Women’s March protesting the election of Donald Trump.  Ms. Sarsour, who was also a delegate to the DNC, recently spoke at the 15th annual convention of two Muslim Brotherhood organizations, the Muslim American Society MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) in December.  While there she paused for a photo-op with a Hamas operative Salah Sarsour, who spent time in an Israeli jail for his terror related activities.

This is only the latest example of many where Shari’a promoting Muslims have joined with Leftist organizations, which welcome their support with open arms, to advance the common cause of “social justice”.  It truly represents the principle behind the old Arab proverb, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”.   And this is the second reason for the alliance; they have a common enemy.  Sadly, if this is played out to its logical end, the Leftists will ultimately either be converted to Islam, submit as second class citizens (dhimmi) or die.

An Explanatory Memorandum…

…On the General Strategic Goal for the Group.  This document, written in the late 80’s and published in 1991 was found in a FBI raid in 2004 of a mosque leader’s sub-basement.  It lays out the plan for the Ikhwan in North America, specifically, the United States, and from section “One”… establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is”.  Did you catch that reference to Islamic State?  (This is known as Khalifa in Arabic; or “Caliphate”).

The document places major focus on “Settlement”, which can also read “Colonization”.  Section “Three” paragraph 4 reads:

“Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America: The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack…”  (Emphasis added)

It can be demonstrated that many Muslim advisers to the U.S. government are Muslim Brothers or sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood cause. The most prominent Islamic organizations in the United States, with which the U.S. government outreaches, are all controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood. These include hundreds of groups, but specifically all of the Islamic organizations working with the U.S. government including, but not limited to:

  • Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) –Also listed as an “un-indicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land Foundation trial of 2008, the largest terror funding trial in US history.
  • Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) –Un-indicted Co-conspirator, HLF trial.
  • Muslim Student Association (MSA) –The oldest MB organization in the US, founded 1963.
  • Muslim American Society (MAS)
  • Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)
  • Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA)
  • North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) –Un-indicted Co-conspirator, HLF trial –Owns nearly all Mosque and real property.
  • International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT)
  • Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)

5 individuals were convicted in 2008 of funneling $12 million to Hamas.  The “Un-indicted Co-conspirator” status is still valid, and exists because the Obama Administration ceased all indictments as soon as he took office in 2009.  There are 300 individuals and additional groups which remain on this list.

What’s the Prognosis?  So asked an old friend.

While the evidence is copious and unmistakable, the United States government has, up until now, completely failed in its role to “Protect and Defend” not only the American people, but the Constitution as well.  There must be no equivocation by mealy-mouthed politicians and bureaucrats when dealing with a foreign ideology which is sworn to subvert the American government, it’s Constitution (Article 6) and conquer its citizens bringing them into subjugation under a tyrannical system posing as a “religion”.  Let there be no doubt; this is the final objective of Islam where ever it is found.  Where there are Shari’a compliant Muslims, there you will find this ideology.  You see, Islam doesn’t care if you convert or not.  But you will submit to the Shari’a.

While the evidence is copious, so then also is the number of those adherents who are doing their duty as laid out in the “Memorandum”.  They are highly organized and dedicated; driven, not by emotions, media, or self interests, or even a single leader, but by an ideology which does not accept defeat, and is very, very patient.

Today’s American People on the other hand are not.  They are polarized, uneducated and ripe; a result of “globalization” and “multi-culturalism” which has left Americans clueless to what America is.  We don’t know our own narrative.  (See previous posts on this point)

Couple all this with the massive crowds who are motivated in opposition of a new President, and those radical Leftists who have been at war with the establishment for several years now, advocating killing cops, burning properties, and targeting people based on their skin color, and you have the makings of a bona fide revolution.  The Left has been looking for this for years, the Jihadi’s live for it, and the emotional crowds will follow along like Vladimir Lenin said they would.  He called them “useful idiots”.  Revolutions get messy.  They are never simple, nor are the lines clear.  The hoards will get out of hand and atrocities happen quickly.

The Remedy?

It may be too late.  A change in the White House is a good start, but Congress is going to have to come along side.  A moratorium on “refugees” from countries that have trained, propagated, and funded the civilization jihad, as well as terrorist activities around the world, is another necessary step.  But the first thing that needs to happen is to classify the Muslim Brotherhood and it’s affiliates as terrorist organizations.  Secondly, the DOJ must begin indictments on that long list of individuals and organizations listed in the aforementioned document.  These subversive groups, MSA, CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, NAIT, and all the rest must be denied access to the government, and all educational institutions in the USA.  Until now, representatives from these Brotherhood groups have been allowed free and unrestricted access to the White House and Cabinet offices, Universities across the country, even have had members appointed to Dept of Homeland Security committees.

As a result, training manuals for the FBI and other security departments have been purged of anything tying any terrorist act to Islam.  Former DHS founding member and intelligence expert Phillip Haney experienced this when he was ordered by his superiors to purge over 700 pages of documentation from the DHS data base making that connection.  His book, “See Something, Say Nothing”, is a tell all, whistleblowing expose in which he explains the process that resulted in redacting information that would have been available on the Boston Bomber brothers and the San Bernardino shooters, possible allowing them to be stopped before their jihad.

What sovereign country continues, no, expedites importation of an ideology which has repeatedly and unabashedly declared war on it, even giving its followers access to the highest positions of power in the land, and in addition to that, turns over editing of security manuals and classified information, policy making, and textbooks for its own school children?  How would the Japanese Empire, the National Socialists (Nazi) of Germany, and militant Communism (at least during the Cold War) have been stopped if these policies were in place then?!

Epilogue

Last Saturday when the newly elected President attended the traditional “multi-faith” services at the National Cathedral, there were two Imam’s who offered prayers.  The first, Mohamed Magid, former president of ISNA, which as revealed previously, the US government has named as a Muslim Brotherhood front group, and is the current lmam of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) mosque complex in Northern Virginia, one of the most Sharia-adherent and jihadist in the country.  The video of this speech has been widely distributed, wherein Mr. Trump is obviously unhappy, and Mrs. Trump is quite upset, to the point that the President thought she was leaving.

The second Islamic prayer was offered by Sajid Tarar, a Pakistani native and naturalized US citizen who created a group known as “Muslims for Trump”, and gave the closing prayer at the RNC convention last summer.  His prayer was the very prayer that is spoken in Arabic by every Muslim who prays in Mosque, known as Al-Fatihah (Exordium).  It is the first Sura of the Quran and all prayer is invalid without it.  It goes like this:  Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Universe, The Compassionate, the Merciful, Sovereign of the Day of Judgement!  You alone we worship, and to You alone we turn for help. Guide us to the straight path, the path of those whom You have favored, Not of those who have incurred Your wrath, Nor of those who have gone astray.”

First of all, the Shari’a, literally translated, means “the straight path”.

Furthermore,  Islamic scholars and commentaries interpret the three groups of people at the end as: “those favored” – Muslims,  “those who have incurred your wrath”- Jews, “those who have gone astray”- Christians.  Since this was spoken in Arabic, few who were in attendance knew what was being said, and wouldn’t have caught the full meaning anyway.

The Republicans were proud to push to the media that they had “Muslims for Trump” in support back during the Convention.

Just a word to the wise.  Be ye warned:  Do not ever forget “Asymmetrical Warfare”.





Recall Babylon

14 01 2017
A Great Catastrophe
Mrs. Obama said she had “no hope” now that Trump was elected. Millions of snowflakes are bereft that Hillary did not win the election. Many people are so lost in their grief they’ve had to get therapy, join “safe rooms” and drink hot chocolate while petting puppies to give them solace at the loss of the election. Many more are so angry they’re going to actively join in attempts to sabotage the new President, and a lot of these people represent around 90% of the media, many are in elected positions, many more are un-elected bureaucrats, and some are going to be causing havoc in the streets. Many on social media are lamenting they “no longer have a leader”, refuse to accept the new President as legitimate (failing to understand the electoral system which balances elective power), or simply refuse to accept him as President b/c Hillary lost.
 
I’ve seen talk of impeachment, even before Trump has been inaugurated. Good luck with that. But I would be perfectly happy with a true conservative, Mike Pence in the Oval Office anyway. You won’t like him.turris_babel_by_athanasius_kircher
 
For those who are so lost and anxious without a “leader/provider”, if the person in the Oval Office is where you find your confidence, your strength, your security and self worth or identity, you have appropriated your faith hope in a power/figure who can do nothing to make you a better person, improve your standing in your community or provide real sustenance for your children or make them better people when they grow up. The only person who can do that is you.
 
Maybe it’s time everyone started a little self reliance program and quit waiting for government to “fix it”.
 
When you place all your hopes and securities in one man, I don’t care who he is, you are following the crowds who empowered every dictator in history.  If your happiness, your self esteem, your security in life, is dependent on that special someone in the White House, you are pathetic.
 
Time to get on with life. Definitely do not turn a blind eye to government, but face the facts, just like I and millions of fellow conservatives faced the fact that Obama won, not once, but twice. Confession: I flew my flag at half mast after Obama won the second time for 3 days. During that time I still went to work, did my job, and loved my family and friends.  No, I didn’t curl up in a ball and cry, or start planning a rebellion, join a riot, organize a protest at the inauguration, threaten to move to Canada, or tell the world how ashamed I was that America had elected a Marxist.
Even after 4 years of proving that he was facilitating Muslim Brotherhood advancement in our own government, and abroad, had ceased indictments of co-conspirators in the largest Islamic terrorism trial in American history, and castrated our Counter Terrorism operations, I still wasn’t “hopeless”, as Mrs. Obama described herself to Oprah Winfrey.
 
My Hope is placed in the Christ. Not a man, not a political system. Not even in the American People. No greater mistake can be made than to place our great hope and trust in any single man/woman, all of whom are corrupt, sinful and whose “heart is deceitful and desperately wicked’. I actually heard Mr. Obama referred to during his campaign as “savior”, the great “Hope” (his own campaign poster), and supporters of his celebrating that the gas tank would be full, won’t have to worry about paying their bills, because Obama would take care of them.
 
Reality Check
We are witnessing the disintegration of America as we have known it. We’ve been divided and subdivided for ease of conquest. We are disunited, angry, and polarized like no time since prior to the Civil War. I believe it is the natural progression of any society who rejects truth, visa vi, Biblical Christianity. We are less educated than indoctrinated, less informed than misinformed, and less circumspect than disrespectful, except of those we find who agree with us.
 
We have been “Community Organized”. Read Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” to understand what that means. To quote Alinsky, the “community organizer is an agitator”, who takes advantage of divisions and differences among people to completely separate them from traditional views, beliefs, or practices which unify society in general, in order to remake that society. It’s Karl Marx with a hint of Vlad Lenin.
 
How has this happened? While visiting my daughter and her husband who now live in the Dallas Metro area, I made an observation, the truth of which I knew cerebrally, but now realized tangibly. Urbanization.
 
I grew up in a tiny rural Kansas town some cultures would call a village, of 161 people. That’s inside the city limits in 1976. (The surrounding farmers and ranchers also take part in the community) I knew the population count because my grandmother and I took the census from her dining table. We knew everyone who lived there. Yes, everyone knew your business, but everyone also knew when you needed help. It is still that way; a very strong community who takes care of its elders, celebrates their neighbors joys in life and mourns their sorrows, work together and for each other, and exercises individual liberties to the extent the law will allow, yet knows the true sense of “Community” where all hold dear that sense of responsibility for the common good, but the importance of individualism. It’s not heaven, but it’s closer than Dallas.
 
I think Fort Worth/Dallas is not unlike most other metropolitan areas, maybe just a little more modern than some I’ve been to, at least in the context I am considering. A combined population of over 2 million people who have no real sense of community. People who live in the city have fewer real friends, are active in far less community events, organizations, services or activities. They volunteer less, don’t know their neighbors, and thus are much less likely to participate in their own community. They have little interest in its success and are focused mostly on their own lives and businesses. There is little perceived responsibility to ones neighbor, block, subdivision or suburb/city. I don’t know if it’s always been this way, but I suspect so. (In my opinion this is why church is important as a focal point of “community”. My little hometown has two.)
 
Humans possess an innate desire to be part of something bigger than themselves. God placed this intrinsic need within us for our own survival, and more importantly to draw us to Him. Like all God given human desires, when perverted they become destructive, both physically and spiritually.
 
Where there is little or no sense of community, i.e. big cities, there is still that need to belong. You don’t see gangs roaming the streets of Podunk, USA. You don’t find Union halls in Smallville. Per capita fewer will belong to Kiwanis or Lions in Omaha than in North Platte.  
That’s why racially driven revolutionary organizations do better in Houston than in Lubbock. “Community”, like many terms in our American lexicon, has been redefined to represent those who look like you, or hold the same ideology. The classic sense of community, although still thriving in those rural settings, has for the most part gone by the wayside.
 
Chicago,the stomping grounds of Mr. Alinsky, as every other major urban center, demands more and larger government providing more and more services, and when those are provided the populous demands more, or requires more. Chicago has not had a Republican Mayor since 1869. In fact, fewer than 25% of America’s largest 100 cities have Republican Mayors, and in the top 10 only 1, San Diego. The truth of statements made by our Founders and Statesmen centuries ago are being proved out today:
As Speaker of the House Robert Winthrop (1847) said, “All societies of men must be governed in some way or other. The less they may have of stringent State Government, the more they must have of individual self-government. The less they rely on public law or physical force, the more they must rely on private moral restraint. Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the Word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet.”
 
This, I think, is the crux of the issue. We have thrown off our Judeo-Christian moorings, both individually and socially. It is a vicious cycle. I don’t have the answers, I am just making observations. Perhaps this is the natural evolution of society; a reflection of the spiritual condition of mankind which, when concentrated, reveals the true level of depravity.
Recall Babylon. Perhaps we should be prepared to be scattered.




“Fake News”

11 12 2016

“Fake News”.

You mean like, “Dewey Defeats Truman”? (Chicago Tribune 1948)deweytruman12

Or “Hands up, Don’t Shoot”? (all network TV outlets, 2014)

Or maybe, the scary “Another Ice Age” (Time 1974)

How about the story about the hot air balloonist who crossed the Atlantic in 3 days in 1844 reported by the New York Sun?

I remember Dan Rather waxing eloquent in 1991 about how the US Military could not win (Operation Desert Storm) against Saddam Hussein’s “battle hardened warriors”. It took all of 100 hours to annihilate the “elite Republican Guard”.

I heard a caller last night on a radio program advocating for Congress to pass a law requiring journalists to “give only the facts”. That was supposedly a “conservative” caller. He echoed Hillary’s call for Congress to act against the “epidemic of ‘fake news'”.

First of all, any such law would be un-Constitutional according to the 1st Amendment. Second, do we really want a “Bureau of Media” policing the content of newspapers, TV, and internet news sources?

Oh, I agree, there is a lot of BS out here in cyber-world, and one must be eternally vigilant when “reposting” or passing on “news” or other opinion/editorial information. Little aggravates me more than really smart people passing on “fake news” that comes off some parody or satire site, thinking it is valid. I don’t often post these sites, for this reason, but I have done it on occasion, if particularly entertaining, with a “disclaimer” comment, and have still had well meaning folks comment as if it were a true article.

There has been “fake news”, “false stories”, or “hoaxes” since Gutenburg invented the printing press (I imagine; don’t quote me on that – it’s just a figure of speech!). Let’s all “take a chill pill” here and breathe deeply for a few days and consider the risk of a “Free Press” as opposed to a restricted State run media (something like PBS, or Prada).

No, Hillary, “fake news” did not cost you the election, but you can help the President push the “fake news” narrative that Russia hacked our polling places. In fact, I would venture a statement here that Donald Trump did not even cost you the election… The President’s policies, your failure as Sec of State, the Democrat National Committee, the Republican National Committee, and an establishment controlled Congress, along with a very friendly media complex, all cost you the election. Donald Trump is not a creation of redneck America; He is a creation of “Establishment Failure”. That establishment includes the “Media Complex”.

However corrupt that media complex may be, restriction of the internet, media police, state approved networks, or whatever other enemies of free speech may be presented, cannot be considered as the answer. Free speech restricted is not free speech at all. On the other hand, freedom requires responsibility; something not many in today’s society are willing to bear. But responsibility lies not only on the writer, reporter, editor, but responsibility must also be borne by the reader, listener, the consumer and user of the information provided.

In this little essay you will find facts along with some opinion; some immutable truth and objective reporting woven throughout some subjective editorializing.

So you decide: “Fake News” or worthy of a “Share”.

Frankly, I do not care what you think. I  have just exercised my God given freedom of speech as enumerated in the 1st Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America!





Kansas City School Board Recognizes Special Status for Muslims

5 10 2016

H/T to  CausingFitna and  Creeping Sharia for this information.

The Kansas City School Board of Directors has voted on, and the Chairwoman Melissa Robinson and Superintendent Mark Bidell have signed, a resolution which mirrors the UN Resolution 16/18 and HR 569, a resolution currently in committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.  What the resolution effectively does is elevates the status of Islam, and Muslims, above criticism and challenge, or even questioning, from non-Muslims.

UN 16/18 was formerly known as the “Defamation of Religion”, or more accurately, the “International Blasphemy” law, brought by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), praised by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who promised to extra-legal tactics to implement it in the United States while she was in Turkey, whose government has flipped from a secular format to one which is increasingly Islamic, and continues to purge journalists who are critical of the AKP Sharia driven agenda there.

HR 569, currently in committee and co-sponsored by 145 Democrats, brings 16/18 to the United States. I have written much about this resolution here, and here.

The KC Schools resolution specifically names Muslims, those perceived as being Muslim, and people of color, as being the victims of “an unprecedented backlash” against Muslims since the 9/11 attacks.  The backlash which has never occurred, in spite of the unbroken stream of propaganda from the media on a daily basis about how Muslims are the most persecuted group in America.

The simple fact is, of all religious groups, Jews are still the most victimized.  The FBI reports 62% of anti-Religion hate crimes are against Jews, compared to 11% against Muslims.  While that FBI report is 2012, the latest available in a quick search, the latest data gathered by a media study group shows an uptick in post terror attack of about 17% in the few weeks following 9/11, but dropping back to 10% higher a year later.  That would increase the overall anti-Muslim instances to about 12-13% of all anti-religious hate crimes are against Muslims while not changing the 62% against Jews appreciably.

So where is the “safe-space” resolution for the Jews and the Christians who attend the Kansas City public schools?  Perhaps those families who send their children to those schools should draft an “anti-discrimination” resolution and take it to their school board to get it approved.  Christians and Jews have been criticized, ridiculed, and ostracized for their Creation science beliefs for years.  They’ve also been told to basically keep their mouth shut about moral issues concerning sex and marriage, and stop praying, because it’s a public school and that’s a “violation of separation of church and state”, which doesn’t seem to apply to Muslims.

Below is the text of the KC School district resolution (courtesy CreepingSharia).  Keep in mind that in Islam, any speech or action rejecting, questioning, or challenging Islam, Quran, Hadith, Sharia, or Muslims is considered “violence, bigotry, hate speech” and has even been called “crimes against humanity” or “human rights violation” by Islamic leaders.  Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) coined a term for it: “Islamophobia”.

Condemning violence and hate speech, expressing support for Muslim students and those perceived as Muslims

Adopted by the Kansas City Public Schools Board of Education September 28, 2016

WHEREAS the United States was founded by immigrants, many fleeing religious persecution, who enshrined freedom of religion as one of our nation’s fundamental legal and ethical principles; and

WHEREAS there are more than 3 million Muslims living in the United States today, and approximately 30,000 living in the Greater Kansas City area, making invaluable contributions to our economy, our social and political life, and our culture; and

WHEREAS discrimination on the basis of religion, and against Muslims and those perceived as Muslims in particular, is deeply embedded within our country’s long history of racism and xenophobia; and

WHEREAS there has been an unprecedented backlash since the September 11th attacks in the form of hate crimes and employment discrimination toward Arab and Muslim Americans and those perceived as Muslims; and

WHEREAS Muslims, Muslim Americans, and those perceived as Muslims, are frequently the targets of abusive and discriminatory police practices sanctioned by the state including surveillance in their neighbor hoods and places of worship; and

WHEREAS the recent escalation of hateful rhetoric against Muslims, those perceived as Muslims, immigrants, and people of color is especially harmful to children, as it has a negative impact on their psychological well-being, the health of their peer relationships, and their ability to thrive in school; and

WHEREAS Muslim students, and those perceived as Muslims, across the country have reported instances of bullying and disproportionate school discipline on account of their religion and/or race; and

WHEREAS approximately 653 Kansas City Public Schools’ families have designated Somali, Arabic, and other Muslim languages being spoken in their homes; and

WHEREAS Muslim students in the Kansas City Public school district contribute in numerous ways to the vitality of the learning environment, and
their parents form an integral part of their school communities; and

WHEREAS providing a safe school environment that ensures both the physical and emotional safety of students and staff creates the conditions necessary to foster academic achievement; and

WHEREAS it is the responsibility of schools to educate students about the social, cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States, to promote awareness of a wide range of religious and cultural traditions, and to teach students to think critically about their own biases; and

WHEREAS we, as the leaders of the Kansas City Public Schools have a responsibility to ensure that all of our students are supported in their academic and personal development:

Now therefore be it resolved, that the Kansas City Public Schools

(1) Condemns all hateful speech and violent action directed at Muslims, those perceived as Muslims, immigrants and people of color;
(2) Commits to fostering a school environment that promotes respect for and curiosity about all religions and cultures, affirms the equal humanity of all members of the community, and rejects all forms of bullying and discrimination;
(3) Commits to instituting school policies and setting an educational curriculum that reflects the values expressed in this resolution via training of staff and teachers, the inclusion of diverse resources to supplement in-class curricula, and the creation of safe spaces for students to address school-based bullying.





9/11 Fifteen Years Past: Dates which live in Infamy

9 09 2016

As we commemorate the 15th Anniversary of the second “Date which will live in Infamy”, September 11th, 2001, we must look in retrospection and introspection as to what we have learned about ourselves as Americans and what we have done to remedy the cause and prevent the potential 3rd Date of Infamy.

As President Roosevelt made his address to Congress on December 8th, he spoke of the attack of the Empire of Japan on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, which killed over 2400 and wounded over 1200 Americans.

 “Yesterday, December 7th, 1941, a date which will live in infamy, the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”

He went on to rally Americans to respond with realistic tone of determination and warning that “our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger”.  America was suddenly and totally immersed in World War Two, a bloody struggle of free men around the world against the tyrants of Imperialism, Fascism, and National Socialism, all three led by racist dictators bent on world conquest, and forming the “Axis Powers” of Japan, Italy, and Germany.

However, this most recent “Day of Infamy” has not been met with the decisiveness of strong leadership, nor the resolve of a determined, united, and discerning people, as the previous had.

In early 1941 Gallup took a poll of Americans. Even with the Empire of Japan raping the Asian Pacific, Hitler and Mussolini occupying most of Europe and perpetrating the imprisonment and mass murder of Jews, and anyone else who stood in the way, 80% of Americans were still against entering the war prior to Pearl Harbor. After that Sunday morning, you would be hard pressed to find anyone willing to voice any opposition to anything short of full and complete immersion.  Even after America had been at war for some years, young men were afraid the war would end before they were old enough to get in it.

The difference between 9/11/2001 and 12/7/1941 is more than a mere 60 years of time passage. The difference between that generation and this, is spiritual.

While obviously not every person was devoutly religious in 1941 in America, there was a generally understood belief that God had set a guideline for living and that humans were accountable for themselves and their charges accordingly.  There was a strong sense of right and wrong, and providing for one’s self and family.  (These things still exist, but are more sub-cultural generally speaking.)

These people had been living through the Great Depression for the last 12 years.  (In fact, it was the war economy which pulled America out of that Depression.)  They had been conditioned to hard times and living within their sometimes meager means. Their faith had been tested and their character forged in the fires of total financial ruin, drought, high unemployment, and less than 25 years previous, World War 1. They were benevolent in spite of their lack. They were thankful for what they had and those who survive yet today are still the some of the most benevolent and gracious among us. They retained that spirit of self reliance, determination, and resolve. We would do well to learn from them.

In the days following 911, America briefly caught a vision of her former self.

Her people fled in droves to the solace of churches everywhere in search of comfort, reassurance, and an explanation. We assembled in groups as Americans, not multicultural hyphenated people groups.  We cried together, came to assist those in need, shared our plenty with those who lost much, and bowed our heads together to mourn our dead and memorialize heroes and the innocents.

We came together with resolve and righteous anger.  We were bound, even so very briefly by national patriotism, a sense of duty, shared sacrifice and loss, and that somewhat primitive urgency to avenge our countrymen. The recruitment offices were again flooded with volunteers for military service. There are yet to this day a few brave young men willing to step up.

People from large and small cities and towns across America took equipment, treasure and time to assist in recovery and cleanup operations at the Pentagon, Manhattan, and Pennsylvania.  Those who could not leave home gave blood, donated supplies, sent money, and prayed.

For the most part we received some comfort and reassurance in numbers and memorials, and helping our fellow countrymen, but few found a satisfactory explanation for the tragedy of 911.  An explanation that divides good from evil, light from darkness, life from death.

The spiritual dearth resulting from two generations of revisionist history, secular humanism, and relativism has left America adrift in a stormy sea of pluralism and confusion, while being pursued by pirates, with no lighthouse to provide a bearing and no wind of common purpose in her sails. Foreign philosophies and ideologies have ripped the rudder off and unchained the anchor. God has been replaced by a godless government and a politically correct media is playing the part of a “false prophet”.  The ship has no captain and the crew is devouring the remaining provender.  The passengers have been sleeping below decks and rats are infesting the ship with disease.

We have yet to officially recognize the enemy that perpetrated the last “Day of Infamy” fifteen years ago.

‘Twas not the case in 1941. Congress and the President immediately declared war on the Axis Powers of Japan, Italy, and Germany. There were no calls for “understanding what we did to upset the Japanese”; no pandering President naming the ideology of National Socialism “a peaceful [ideology] which has been hijacked by extremists”.  There was no allowance for Nazi’s in America to participate in memorial ceremonies to honor our dead.  The media did not feature psycho-babble explaining the “Rape of Nanking” China by Imperial Japan as Chinese oppression, or that  Pearl Harbor was a result of intrusive American foreign policy.

These perpetrators of Nazism, Fascism, and Imperial Conquest were named and identified as enemies of the United States of America. Roosevelt continued in his speech,No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion the American people will in their righteous might win through to absolute victory.”

 In the closing paragraphs, he stated, “I speak the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will see to it that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again. Hostilities exist…”

On the other hand, Presidents since 911 have never recognized that while we are not at war with a specific country with uniformed troops, the enemy is much more specifically identifiable than by terms like “Terrorists”, “Killers”, “Evildoers” and “Radical Extremists” or even “Al Qaida”.  Yes the enemy may be all those adjectives but these terms do not identify a reason for the action of war or the source of it. There are all kinds of killers, evildoers, radicals, and a myriad of self named groups who perpetrate a political agenda. These terms do nothing to identify the enemy which has spelled out its intent under no uncertain terms. War.

Jihad, which is defined by the “Classic Manual of Islamic Holy Law” as:  A “war  against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada [soldier], signifying warfare to establish the religion…” until all the world is brought under the rule of Sharia, and Allah’s religion reigns supreme, is what we are embroiled in.

We are at war.  9/11 was not a criminal act.  It was an act of war perpetrated upon a sovereign nation by a socio-politico ideological system that at its very core is racist, compulsory, supremacist, and imperialistic. This ideology crosses geographical and national lines.

The enemy is the radical ideology of Islam. And make no mistake, radical Islam is Fundamentalist Islam, which is the truest form of Islam.  But our government and other institutions cannot bring themselves to identify the true source of this fight.  An enemy unrecognized will overtake and subdue an opponent that is unwilling to confront him. We can pretend that Islam is a “peaceful religion” and whistle through the graveyard at the cost of everything that is good and just about America. Or we can name the enemy and attack it. We are in a death match.

Although the battle may be physical in the military sense, the war is Spiritual. If America refuses to recognize this most important fact, she loses. If America loses, the entire world loses.  In the words of Lincoln, America is still “the last best hope for Earth”.  Today, the only hope for her survival is her people turn to the only source of hope; Faith in the God of our Fathers.  (Incidentally, He has no parlay with, nor is He related to the cultic deity, Allah of the Quran.)

Who Is Black Lives Matter?

8 08 2016

With Law Enforcement Officers dying in America’s streets, simply for wearing the uniform, we have entered a new era.  While it is reminiscent of the 1960’s-70’s radical revolutionary movement which paralleled, then infiltrated and co-opted a legitimate civil rights movement, this is even more serious, more deadly, and more dangerous than that.  More dangerous in that the radicals have been allowed to infiltrate every institution, and are now in the chief seats of power.  More serious because during the 50’s and 60’s there was legitimate need for civil rights reform in both American society and in government.  More deadly in that the stability of American society has been successfully fragmented over the last 40 years due to multi-culturalism and pluralism, and recently with unchecked immigration policies, and the great “melting pot” of American culture has become a TV dinner, divided, cold, and hardened to critical thinking and introspection.  Particularly, in matters of race relations, the election of our first black President, has resulted in deeper wedges being driven, and some of those by the President himself.  Mind you, it’s not simply because the man happens to have dark skin, but wholly as a result of his ideology which cannot be contained.

For anyone who doubts that ideology is supreme in today’s America, and racism is an over used word which has gotten lost in it’s wreckless and wanton use by demagogues in identity politics, just consider this.  When was the last time anyone in the mainstream media celebrated, or even took seriously, a black (or white for that matter) American man or woman in office or position of influence, who has taken a politically conservative or Christian based moral position on any issue?  Let me name a few: Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Ambassador Alan Keyes,  Congressman Lt. Col. Alan West,  Congresswoman Mia Love, Senator Tim Scott, former Congressman J.C. Watts, US Appeals Court Judge Janice Rogers Brown (whom Democrats refused to confirm for 2 years), Professor, author, Thomas Sowell,  Journalist, Professor, author Walter E. Williams, politician and Former Secretary of State Condelleza Rice.   All great conservative Americans of African descent.  Out of the 10 names, I doubt the average person will recognize half of them.  These are all people of great influence due to either elected positions, or hard work and dedication to the betterment of all American society; not just one specific shade of color.  These are the kind of people who, if possible are ignored by media.

Conversely, you will recognize immediately names such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Elijah Cummings, Oprah Winfrey, Louis Farrakhan,  and outlaws like Michael Brown and Freddie Gray.

The origin of Black Lives Matter

#1)  The hashtag # Black Lives Matter movement was co-founded by Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.  Garza is a Marxist political activist who’s heroes include the Marxist revolutionary, former Black Panther, and convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur for her contributions to the “Black Liberation Movement.” Garza is likewise a great admirer of Angela Davis  (Communist Party USA and former Black Panther).  Cullors has ties to the 60’s revolutionary terrorist group, Weather Underground, and led 600 Black Lives Matter protesters to Ferguson, MO in 2014 following the death of Michael Brown after he struggle with a police officer trying to take his weapon.  Those protests resulted in 400 arrests, 20 civilian injuries,  37 St. Louis County police officers injured, 12 civilian cars burned, 2 police cruisers burned, and 29 buildings burglarized or vandalized all totaling about $5 Million.

All three BLM founders share a Marxist ideology and work for front groups of the “Freedom Road Socialist Organization” (FRSO), a self proclaimed “revolutionary socialist and Marxist-Leninist organization” which touts itself as a “new Communist movement” with its roots in the
60’s and 70’s revolutionary groups; groups like the League of Revolutionary Struggle, the Revolutionary Union, the Communist Labor Party, the October League, the Communist Workers Party, the Black Workers Congress, just to name a few.  The FRSO website is wide open about its intentions, nothing covert there, and touts Communist revolutionaries including Mao Zedong, arguably the worst mass murderer in history killing 70 million in his takeover of China.

The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM), is an ANTIFA organization committed to armed conflict, and tribal like enclaves (CHAZ), giving examples of ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) anti-state counter groups; Kurdish tribal community resurgence groups like YPG (People’s Protection Unit) and YPJ (Asayis-Internal Security Force) as a model, which set up secure zones requiring checkpoints for entry. RAM is also directly linked to BLM, and holds up as idols the likes of cop killers like aforementioned Assata Shakur, Angela Davis, Russel Shoats, Mumia-Abul Jamal.

The additional list of Revolutionary and Racist groups and individuals that BLM is directly, or indirectly associated with includes Open Society Foundations (George Soros), Tides Foundation, Ford Foundation among a long list of others who pump millions of dollars into BLM.

#2) In BLM’s short history they have inspired riots in several US cities, and protests in many more with provocative chants such as “What do we want? -DEAD COPS!! When do we want it? -NOW!!”, and “Pigs in a Blanket, Fry ’em like Bacon!!”. “No Justice; No Peace”, just to hit the most popular ones. If there is yet any doubt to the revolutionary intent, check this article published on BLM’s website lamenting the death and celebrating the life of Fidel Castro.

#3)  Every generation has its rebels, but these are being well funded by people like George Soros, who has given over $7 Billion to other radical Leftist groups like: ACORN, Apollo Alliance, National Council of La Raza, aforementioned Tides Foundation, Huffington Post, Southern Poverty Law Center, Soujourners, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood, and the National Organization for Women, and Moveon.org.   Soro’s also funded the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri marching for #BLM, who burned those businesses, rioted and created havoc for the entire city, under the false narrative that Michael Brown was an innocent teenage boy who had his hands up and was gunned down in the street by a white racist cop.  Soros and his Progressive friends would like nothing better than to see massive civil unrest in America’s streets. (Ferguson cop Darren Wilson was cleared by the USDOJ after a full civil rights investigation by AG Eric Holder). However, we cannot allow justification of terrorist activities from these revolutionaries any more than we can allow justification for Islamic terrorism. The desired culmination of these efforts will be bloody anarchy which will end in total and complete martial law, and the people will demand it.

#4) The protest in Dallas was indeed peaceful, up until the killing of 5 police officers and wounding 7 more, yet some of the protesters did, and one even confessed afterward on a call in radio program, that he and others had attempted to provoke police officers by various means of disrespectful behavior.

#5)  Just less than 4 hours before the Dallas shooting, Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam (an American black cult version of Islam) had posted a call for blacks to rise up in violence against whites saying, “…don’t let this white man tell you that violence is wrong.” “Every damn thing that he got, he got it by being violent — killing people, raping and robbing and murdering. He’s doing it as we speak, and then he has the nerve to come and tell us that violence and hatred won’t get it. Don’t buy that!…He is worthy to be hated.”

The Next Phase 

BLM has recently formed with 30 other member organizations a new, broader organization of groups, and endorsed by another nearly 40 such groups, to form “The Movement for Black Lives” or “M4BL”, which codified it’s platform in conjunction with the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia (2016).  M4BL‘s platform reads like the Communist Manifesto demanding, among other things:  Reparations, consisting of not just full and free access to all public education facilities including colleges and universities, but make it a “Constitutional Right“, not just for American blacks but for “all undocumented” as well as “formerly and currently incarcerated” and full retroactive forgiveness of all student loans, and a “guaranteed minimal livable income“.

M4BL goes on in their demands to “Divest-Invest“, in which funds for policing/incarceration would be diverted to education/employment programs.  “Economic Justice” which demands “radical and sustainable redistribution of wealth” and a Communistic “End of exploitative privatization of natural resources” and demands “democratic control over how resources are preserved“.  Verbatim it reads:

  • “Because land is treated as a commodity, a minority of wealthy corporations and families disproportionately owns land in the U.S. and the resources on top of it. 60 percent of land is privately owned, with the wealthiest half-a-percent owning 35.6 percent of this land and the wealthiest 10 percent owning nearly 80 percent of it.”

The lost little fact among these stats is the United States Government owns/controls over 1/3 of the land mass of the United States.  That would, I think, fall under the category “democratically controlled”, according to the context of the statements hereto.  This demand is right out of the  Communist Manifesto’s 1st plank of abolishing private property ownership.

The M4BL ‘s “End the War on Black People” plank proclaims “We demand an end to the criminalization, incarceration, and killing of our people.”  This entails and end to capital punishment, “ending the use of past criminal history to determine eligibility for housing, education, licenses, voting, loans, employment, and other services and needs.”  It also requires the “repeal of the 1996 crime and immigration bills, an end to all deportations, immigrant detention, and Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) raids, and mandated legal representation in immigration court.”

The Progressive Left has successfully used America’s black citizen’s for years.  The BLM movement was fully embraced by the soft Marxist Barack Obama.  His Marxist/Progressive party successor Hillary Clinton would have continued to use these communities and continue to keep them in the bonds of “social justice”, marching and working on behalf of those slave-masters who benefit from the people’s own labor.  

Every inner city social and economic disaster where the poor and oppressed black (and other minority) Americans are continuing to languish is, and has been run by these very Progressives for 50 years. Democrat run cities have had the highest rate of racial unrest, violence, gang warfare, and economic inequality. They continue to run on promises to solve the racial inequities, social injustices, and police reform relative to brutality and profiling, yet those issues are never fully addressed or resolved. The Bolsheviks are in control here.  This entire movement has been initiated by them. They must have victims in order to perpetrate a movement. Identity politics and class warfare has proven effective. Now, the Fascist group ANTIFA (Supposedly “anti-fascist”) and it’s Anarchist, and Communist allies, have actually taken over an entire section of Seattle, Washington, and declared it a new sovereign nation. The existing city government ceded the area, including the Police Headquarters, to the terrorists, who now run armed patrols the area, checking identifications to prove people “belong there”.

But alas, the answer to this entire problem is not political.  It is not finance, education, or government which holds the answer.  The answer to this problem is spiritual.  Until people, black, white, brown, or otherwise get a grasp on who God is and who we are before him, this problem will not find relief.  To the contrary, the very God has warned us that perilous times shall come.  He also warned that nation who does not live by His standard, the Bible, is doomed to fail.

I agree that our country is more corrupt than we would like to admit. We have sown to the wind; now we shall reap the whirlwind. Nothing short of national revival of Biblical proportions will stay this judgement we have brought upon ourselves.  

But the people will not have it.





Can a Good Muslim be a Good American?

13 07 2016

I get this question often.  My short answer is “No”.  I will elaborate on this.

On the other hand, can there be a Muslim who is a “good American”?  Yes.  But he is not a “good Muslim”.

A good Muslim, as far as Islam goes, cannot submit himself to the infidel laws of the Constitution of the United States.  He is permitted by the Sharia to obey them, for a time, as he works to overcome them, but he cannot pledge allegiance to laws that Allah did not consent to.

The word “Islam” itself, means “Submission“.  “Muslim” means “one who is submitted” to Allah’s religion, Islam.   The duty of the Muslim, according to the Sharia, is to establish that Sharia (law) “so that Allah’s religion shall reign Supreme”.  I heard a radio advertisement back in 2012, (video version here) when the Kansas Legislature was hearing “American Laws for American Courts“.  It said that “We humans have devised laws

IMG_8604 - Copy - Copy (1280x451)

ICNA Billboard Kansas City, KS 2012

to govern our country, our workplaces, and our homes.  Likewise, the divine laws sent by god to guide humanity to justice and peace are known as the Sharia Laws… Thus Sharia is god’s guidance to establish morality, justice and peace for all.”  (This single statement begs to be dissected but we’ll suffice to say that if your laws of morality, justice and peace don’t cross over into your home, workplace, or your country, you live in chaos.  It sets up a dichotomy of law that doesn’t make any sense.)   Of course, they used the word “god” instead of Allah as a deception, and since “Allah” of the Shariah is not “God” I refuse to capitalize it.

 Now, a self proclaimed “Muslim” may be a good American, and many are.   They are not “Islamist” (meaning they propagate, or promote Islam politically or culturally), and may, or may not, attend mosque.   I refer to these people as “cultural Muslims” (the generally used term is “moderate”)  who may loosely hold to traditional diet and traditions, such as the Ramadan celebration.  Much like non-practicing or non-committed Christians may attend church on Easter or Christmas.   But these ‘Muslim” folks are not committed to the Sharia, and therefore, are disobedient to Allah.  The fundamentalist Muslim refers to these as “takfiri” or one who is outside the authority of Islam, or “disobedient”.  Some schools would even go so far as to classify this as “Riddah“or “apostate”.  The punishment for apostasy can be death, according to Sharia.  The takfir can be beaten or jailed, fined or all three.  This is how Muslim on Muslim violence can be justified.  A Muslim who pledges allegiance to anything but Allah, via Islam and the Sharia, is not a “good Muslim”.

According to Islam and the Sharia, a Muslim cannot be loyal to temporal, or earthly, authorities, or non Islamic alliances.  Islamic scholar and Muslim Brotherhood leader Seyyid Qutb wrote  not even blood relation, family, unless they are Muslim.  One is allowed to temporarily submit himself to an infidel authority but his heart must remain submitted to Islam.  This is known as “taqiyya” or deception.  It is allowed so as to preserve ones self and advance the cause of Islam.  It is a military strategy, a feign, so as to throw the enemy off his guard, infiltrate his number, deceiving the enemy until the Ummah (that Islamic community) is powerful enough to overcome the enemy.  Herein lies the danger of Islamic immigration.   (More on this subject to come)

Therefore, a Muslim cannot be a “good American”, and a “good Muslim” at the same time; that is assuming a “good American” gives his allegiance to the Constitution as the basis to the laws of the land (6th Amendment).  The “good Muslim” cannot do that.




“Discussing the Soul of America”

11 04 2016

“Discussing the Soul of America”

This has been the tagline of my blog ever since I first published the title article, “Defining the Narrative” in 2010.

In that first work I discussed the secularization and subsequent spiritual retardation of American culture. By pushing Judeo-Christian ideology to the margins of society, the Bible is removed as the basis for ethics, laws, and morals.

Secularization has made possible Pluralism, which basically says that no ideology, philosophy or faith belief system is of higher social value than any other. All are equal and must not only be tolerated, but embraced. This is the last great virtue of a secular society. Tolerance.  (Which actually is not tolerant of Biblical based principles.)  Tolerance is the politically correct means by which values are exsponged from the minds of apathetic  or emotion driven uneducated populations with no historical moorings.

“By attempting to embrace everything, you can hold onto nothing.”

This is where history finds us, America. Amidst a culture which cannot define itself, lacking a foundation to stand upon, and floating aimlessly in a sea of political correctness fed by the river of pluralism. We don’t know our own narrative.  Could this be the reason that no one in the media, academia, or government can say definitively that America is in a fight for survival? Is it possible that this 40 year drunken binge on “pluralism” has inhibited our ability to see the enemy when he is standing before us, smiling that sinister grin with one hand extended and the other holding a sword?

For the last several years many have been working to restore confidence in the founding Principals of the American nation whose beginnings are unquestionably rooted in the desire of people under tyrannical rule who found oppression in their quest to freely worship the God of the Universe, Creator of Heaven and Earth, Author of the Holy Bible, and Redeemer of Mankind, according to the dictates of their own conscience.

The necessity for this endeavor is made by attempts to defame the American Founders, their motives, and to mislead, confuse, and dishearten modern Americans, drawing into question our very purpose as a people, and eventually disenfranchise today’s patriots and American Christians of all stripes. It is, in effect, an attack against the very foundations of our beloved Country.

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” -John Adams

“Fundamentally transforming the United States of America” is not a Barack Obama original thought. It is in line though, with Mrs. Obama’s statement that “we are going to have to change our traditions, change our history”.  These people are simply the blossom on the weed of Progressivism, which sprouted at the turn of the 20th Century.  While America has a plethora of problems, politically, morally, and spiritually, the fundamentals are not among them.

constitution_thumb_295_dark_gray_bgOnce was the time when America’s virtue was the dominate governing quality of her
people and that virtue, according to the Founders, their contemporaries, and observers such as Alexis D’ Tocqueville, was the direct result of an overwhelming and inherent belief in a Creator God who was Supreme Judge of nations and individuals, and as such, every person was accountable for his/her own actions, which not only resulted in self-government, but was the very framework upon which the Founding Fathers hung the Constitution. The Judeo-Christian ethic, as taught by the Bible, was not only the impetus for the idea that “All men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights”, but was considered as absolutely necessary to maintain a free and civil society.

Progressivism, brought into the main arteries of modern culture of America by Saul Alinsky (Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are both disciples), is a barely more subtle approach to raw Communism, and has its roots in Karl Marx, Fredrick Engels, and Adam Weishaupt (founder of the Illuminati, which was the seed of Communism). The strategy to accomplish this is expedited by drawing into question the character of the American Founders and their motives, demoralizing modern Americans and leaving them feeling betrayed by their heroes, believing they have been misled by their parents, teachers, and institutions.

Progressivism, while claiming the high moral ground, takes advantage of the human condition, (the fallen nature of Mankind) and focuses entirely on the faults of those they oppose, justifying their own lusts and proclivities, while passing judgement on their enemies. The Founders, above most, if not all their succcessors theretofore, were fully aware of this condition and placed their highest priority on keeping government from interfering with the vital task of imparting virtue, and spiritual accountability to Almighty God, to every generation of American, namely through the Judeo-Christian scriptures- the Bible.

Upon this cornerstone rests the entirety of American culture and virtue, and subsequently, the success of the “experiment” of self-government. In that the Founders were also human, there are indeed some fair points of concern. As the reader is full aware, wherever you find men, you will find sin. God’s perfect governmental structure is a Theocratic Kingdom, and He, and He alone, the Perfect King. “All else is ashes and dust”, as the saying goes, and subject to the failures of man and his sinful tendencies. This premise can hardly be refuted. However, until that “Blessed Hope” descends and establishes His perfect Kingdom, Man in his fallen state is relegated to his best feeble attempts to establish civil government, an institution established by God Himself, to avoid disorder and chaos, where the natural man’s own desires are his only conscience.

Until America’s beginnings, there were no kingdoms, nations, or states where men were free to worship accordingly, without dictate from the government which god or creed was the prescribed or acceptable form of worship, and yet still held full and equitable citizenship.

The United States of America was the culmination of all human government attempted to that point. It sought to avoid “theocratic rule” for that specific reason, understanding the corrupt nature of men who would seek positions of power within the “theocracy” and dictate according to their own “god” or creed. Theocracy run by men results in the likes of the Holy Roman Empire, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the Church of England where the King was the Divine Sovereign, from which the Founders were warily seeking to separate. The point can easily be made that this is the glaring reason there is no mention of God in the Constitution.

The self-evident truths outlined in the Declaration of Independance, (the first official -declaration-hero-Edocument of the United States) among others, are that, “all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among which are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”   

The Bible itself actually teaches that all are created equal, “neither Jew, nor Greek, male or female” and that “Thou shalt not murder”, because the other person has a right to life. Liberty, to choose one’s own destiny; no one is forced into Heaven or Hell, or a certain class or status of life. “Go to the ant thou sluggard” and see that even he makes preparation for the future. Men are free to worship God and be blessed, or not. “Thou shalt not steal” – you don’t have a right to take my property, and I do not have a right to take yours. These truths are indeed self-evident and easily find Biblical foundation.

It is this purely American ideal; Liberty to both choose, and pursue, one’s own destiny, employing one’s own God given talents and abilities for the betterment and support of a good and virtuous society, as well as one’s own interests, which has served to motivate and inspire generations of Americans to preserve these values for future generations, lest they ill remember those poor and selfish stewards who lost them.

Fellow Americans, it has fallen to us, in these latter times, to step to the battle lines and engage. We stand at the precipice in a confused and polarized attitude while our children and our grandchildren look to us for leadership, stability, discipline, and courage. Can we imagine this world without an America? It is not simply for our own progeny’s sake, but for the sake of the entire earth that we must revive and restore the spirit of those forbearers, lest the hope of freedom be dashed, for all, upon the jagged stones of tyranny, or smothered under the low stagnant, choking, clouds of apathy and indifference. Christ is the ultimate “Blessed Hope” for Mankind. And because He is, America has been the temporal hope, a haven, a place of escape to, for peoples around the World.

The Pilgrims embarked upon an impossible mission of hope; to establish a society under the Authority of Christ where they could worship the Creator freely. They separated from the State Church of England (thus the label “Separatists”-these were not the “Puritans” who shortly followed) and endeavored to establish a “great hope, for the propagating and advancing the gospel of the kingdom of Christ in those remote parts of the world” Upon landing at Plymouth (Cape Cod) they established the foundation of future civil government for all (for there were among them those who were “uncommitted to church fellowship”, but were loyal subjects to the Crown for civil/social order) in America by signing together the Mayflower Compact:

“In the Name of God…Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.” 11 November, 1620

By 1636 the recently arrived Puritans established a school desiring to educate young men for the ministry, and in 1638 that school became Harvard College among whose Rules and Precepts was found,

Let every student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life, John 17:3, and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning. And seeing the Lord only giveth wisdom, let every one seriously set himself by prayer in secret to seek it of him Prov. 2, 3.” And “Every one shall so exercise himself in reading the Scriptures twice a day…

Upon this foundation was built the framework of a moral and civil society based upon the Gospel of Christ, and His teachings, resulting in, and sustaining that “moral and religious people” which John Adams would later write, upon whom rested the success of Constitutional self -government.

The Constitution therefore, was designed to hang upon that framework, whose foundation was the Bible itself. As Adams so succinctly stated, this Constitution is “wholly inadequate to the government of any other” people. The People must be grounded upon a Biblical worldview, wherein they recognize that each is accountable to the Supreme Judge for their own actions.  Herein lies the answer as to why the Constitution is no longer adhered to, neither is it adequate.  Americans are no longer “a moral and religious people“.

The Constitution has not failed us; we have failed the Constitution. And in failing that Constituion we have failed not only the Founding Fathers, but God Himself.  That which He had entrusted to us has been spurned, ridiculed, and squandered.  A reprobate people cannot, and will not, self govern.

As one time Speaker of the House Robert Winthrop said, “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the Word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet.”

Can America be saved?  That is the question of our time.  The answer is this: Not without the Creator God of the Bible.  Any attempts otherwise are going to result in such tyranny as has been felt in the rest of the world for centuries.

“Fellow citizens, we cannot escape history… We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth.” -A. Lincoln

If we are not successful in preserving this American Ideal, then: “…government of the People, by the People, and for the People…” [shall indeed] “perish from the Earth.”
-Abraham Lincoln

UPDATE: HR 569- Special Status for Muslims Bill

7 01 2016

***LATEST UPDATE BELOW as of Sept 10,  2016***
(Scroll down to see latest sponsor update)

Last December I published “Freedom of Speech: The Continued Assault on America’s Most Precious Liberty” which discussed the dangerous aspects of the bill giving special status/protection to one religious group.  I published the entire text of the bill (without the list of sponsors)  in that article- If you have not read it yet, you can see it here — https://definingthenarrative.com/2015/12/31/freedom-of-speech-the-continued-assault-on-americas-most-precious-liberty/

According to GovTrack.us  the House Resolution which will give Muslims special status against “violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric” has gained many new co-Sponsors, all Democrats.  This makes 145 co-Sponsors, all Democrats.

The bill is still in Judiciary Committee, which is comprised of 23 Republicans (including Louis Gomhert, Trey Gowdy, and Steve King) and 16 Democrats (including Hank Johnson, who thought the island of Guam would capsize with so many military personnel and equipt, and Sheila Jackson Lee).

Here is a link to the entire text of the bill in pdf itself so you can see the entire list of the original sponsors and download for your own use:  https://ingrafted.files.wordpress.com/2015/12/hr-569-us.pdf

This bill is an American Muslim version of UN Resolution 16/18, a bill pushed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) which represents the 56 Islamic nations around the world.  Hillary Clinton stumped for it at Ankara, Turkey, while Sec of State.

HR 569 specifically names Muslims as a special class, worthy of protection from “bigotry or hateful rhetoric”.  “Hateful rhetoric” is a subjective term and can mean anything, including criticism of Islam, and in the Shari’a “bigotry” can be something as simple as rejection of Islam itself, which is an offense to Muslims according to the Sharia, and justifies jihad.  We are seeing the results of this manifested in European countries today.  I do not ever recall a House Resolution which gives special preference to Jews, Christians, Buddhists, or any other religious group.  It is outrageous!

We hear the propaganda from the media on a daily basis about how Muslims are the most persecuted group in America.  The simple fact is, of all religious groups, Jews are still the most victimized.  The FBI reports 62% of anti-Religion hate crimes are against Jews, compared to 11% against Muslims.  While that FBI report is 2012, the latest available in a quick search, the latest data gathered by a media study group shows an uptick in post terror attack of about 17% in the next few weeks, but dropping back to 10% higher a year later.  That would increase the overall anti-Muslim instances to about 12-13% of all anti-religious hate crimes are against Muslims while not changing the 62% against Jews appreciably.

This pro-Muslim bill is most likely being peddled by Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood organization who has had incredible influence on the Democrat Party members and some Republicans.  They have free access to the White House and continue to have “preferred” status at WH events.  CAIR is still listed as a “co-conspirator” in the 2008 terrorist funding trial, where several of its members were convicted and are currently in prison.   The indictments ceased when Mr. Obama took office.

Contact your Representative as well as the House Judiciary Committee members which you will find at this link:  http://judiciary.house.gov/index.cfm/committee-members .

Tell them to stop HR 569 in Committee.

The Myth of “Self Radicalization” and the Fallacy of “Radical Islam”

4 12 2015

This article is a repost from 2 years ago.  I have edited and updated it slightly.  It is as much, if not more relevant today. -DTN

Media Trilobites and government officials continue to bump into each other, feeding on nonsensical buzz words that become trendy for a few weeks and are eventually absorbed into the pop culture lexicon.  These phrases or terms may lie dormant for ages until suddenly they’re on every television commentator’s lips.  If we can’t find a word in the English language to spin up to instant glory, we’ll borrow one from another language.  Al Gore did just that when he described himself as having “gravitas” during his run for the White House. Nearly instantaneously, every talking head in the country was using the heavy Latin word, until finally Chris Mathews commented that Barack Obama’s gravitas caused a tingle to run up his leg.  It kinda lost its punch after that.

But the real point here is the incessant blathering about “self radicalized” terrorists, specifically the brothers Tsarnaev, better known as the Boston Bombers, who were responsible for nearly 270 maimed, wounded, or dead, and now the “San Bernadino Terrorists”who have now been proven to be fundamentalist Muslims and are celebrated as “Shahid” (martyrs) around the globe.  They were not “violent extremists”.  They were Mujahideen, “soldiers of Allah”, on jihad.

Disregarding the obvious elephant in the room, both the government and the media, began hunting for fleas and swatting at gnats.  “Whatever could be the reason for this horrendous tragedy?”  In the Boston Bombing case the story line continued for hours into days that this had to be the work of some “right wing extremists”, and even the President floated a hint or two about April 15th being “tax day”, of course insinuating it was a right-wing tax protest, obviously connected to the Tea Party.

Even before the victims at San Bernadino were removed from the horrific scene of the attack, commentators, reporters and officials were forming a narrative of “3 White Males dressed in military fatigues and body armor“.  Many of the reporters were hoping they were White Supremist’s, not even holding out the possibility of a terrorist attack.  In fact, there seemed to be a refusal to even consider the possibility of the shooters having any ties to Islam, continuing, like CNN’s Harry Houck and law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes, to speculate “right-wingers” were most likely the culprit; Fuentes surmising it to be “an anti-government domestic militia group”. [H/T Newsbusters]

After all, there have been so many “right wing” attacks – Like the first bombing of the World Trade Center back in ’93; no wait, that was Islamic jihad.  Oh, like the 911 attacks when Tea Party members flew passenger airliners into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and were headed for the White House; oh…sorry, those were Islamic jihadist hijackers. Well, like the DC Snipers who terrorized the city for 3 weeks in 2002; no wait, they were Islamic also.  Well then there was the White Supremacist, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who killed one soldier and wounded another in front of the recruiting office in Arkansas in 2009; sorry, again Islamic jihad.

Well…there are so many events that are known to have connections to “conservative right wing Christian radicals” such as: The Fort Hood Massacre when that Christian shooter yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he gunned down 40 people, killing 13.  The 2009 Riverdale New York bomb plot planned by 4 radical Tea Party grandma’s, the Times Square Bomber who had his SUV full of propane tanks and fireworks (surely some redneck like Larry the Cable Guy), the “Fort Dix Six”, the “Underwear Bomber”, the “Shoe Bomber”, etcetera ad nauseam.

My, my, what could it be? What ever could it be that is initiating all these attacks and plots?

[According to this Congressional report, there have been well over 60 successful, attempted, or plotted Islamic Jihad Terrorist attacks on US soil between 9-11-2001 and Jan of 2013.]

Of course, most of these were played off as “Lone Wolf” scenarios where the terrorist was “self-radicalized”.

Listening to all the ‘crack investigative reporters and hard-hitting journalists’, one could come to the conclusion that these guys just must wake up one morning and “self-radicalize” deciding today is a good day to kill some people’.

This term is a copout for lazy journalists and downright deceiving when used by anyone.  A person cannot “self-radicalize” any more than “self-socialize”.  There must be a cause, a mentor, or an ideology that brings a person to the point that he is willing to, no, compelled to kill random people that he doesn’t even know.

That mentor, in many cases, is a spiritual leader.  That cause, or ideology, which is that rather enormous and obnoxious “elephant in the room” that none of the trilobites are willing to discuss?  Islam.

Forget Islam as a Religion

The sooner Americans refuse to continue accepting Islam as a viable and peaceful “religion” and begin to view it as the sociopolitical ideology that it truly is, the greater the possibility the America will survive its onslaught.

The root problem for America is not that Islam has come to colonize her, which it has, but the fact that we have allowed “multi-culturalism” (immigration without assimilation) and “pluralism” (all cultures, ideologies, realities are equal) to progress unchecked resulting in a “balkanized” or “tribal” society wherein competing ideologies are viewed as co-equal.  Not all ideologies are conducive to civilized society, nor are they consistent with the basic premise of freedom, as established in America’s founding documents.

If I were to try to convince you that Germany’s National Socialism (Nazism) is a peaceful ideology that was hijacked by a few “self radicalized” individuals, resulting in the holocaust, you’d laugh in my face.  Well, that’s a pretty good comparison: You have a ‘prophet’ by the name of Hitler who sought to consolidate power under a banner of a unified ideology by clearing the field of competing ideologies, and went to war in order to stoke the economy and gain control of more land area.  Had Muhammad access to German weapons of mass destruction he would certainly not have hesitated to use them.   Hitler’s Holocaust resulted in an estimated 11 Million deaths, many of which were communist (because Karl Marx was Jewish), mentally or physically handicapped, Jehovah’s Witness, homosexual, or Christian leaders such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer who refused to place their names upon the “Aryan Clause” and become “Reich Churches” to do the bidding of the “almighty Fuhrer”.   But his “Final Solution” for 6 million Jews had already been proven and prescribed by Islam’s prophet Muhammad in the Arabian Peninsula 1400 years prior in places with such names as Banu Quaraysa and Khaybar, where Muhammad slaughtered unarmed male prisoners and enslaved the girls, and women, finally appropriating all Jewish property to Muslims.

Both economies required perpetual war.  (The fundamental Islamic world view is “Dar al-Islam” or Dar al-Harb: The world is divided and you either dwell in the “House of Islam”, where Islam rules, or you dwell in the “House of War” and are subject to Jihad.)

Both ideologies have religious overtones (Hitler was worshipped and given a godlike status).  Both ‘prophets’ were consumed with power.  Both cultures fostered distrust and suspicion (Gestapo was everywhere and anyone who challenged the Prophet was dealt with harshly.)  Both Nazism and Islam are fundamentally racist.   Neither can compete philosophically with opposing values, absent of an oppressive legal system or war.

Consider the following argument:

“Well, you know those “Brown Shirts” are really not as bad as the SS or Gestapo.  Now those SS are some evil dudes.  SS are the real “radical” Nazi’s.  The Brownshirts might beat you up but those SS will kill you!  We really need to reach out to those individuals and find out why they hate us so much.  But most of the Nazi’s are moderate.  They aren’t violent at all.  Sure, they go to the rallies where Hitler is speaking, but they’re just normal folks like you and me!  They want the same for their families as we all want.  Yeah, Nazism is actually a very patriotic and peaceful ideology, it’s just been hijacked by some radicals who seek to politicize it, and destroy property and kill people and take their property in the name of this peaceful movement.” 

Well, as you can see this defense of Nazism just doesn’t fly!  Ironically, this is the exact apologetic defense that Islam gets from not only the American mainstream media, but from our government as well!

“Self Radicalization”

This term makes about as much sense as “Obamacare”.  An individual who is willing to commit a violent act of mass murder and mayhem in the name of his god, or any other cause, is soaked in an ideology which is taught or programmed into a person’s psyche.  That ideology doesn’t simply spawn in the mind of the perpetrator.  It comes from someone else, whether through print or other media; from a teacher, guide or mentor.  But the term “self radicalize” is specifically designed to deflect attention from that aforementioned ‘elephant’ sitting in the middle of the room.

Islam is that ideology and it can be taught by other people or the documents themselves, the Koran, Hadith, and countless commentaries and books of Islamic scholars (such asSeyyid Qutb) may be read and studied by the individual, even to the point of the student acting upon those teachings.  Tamerlan Tsarnaev did not “self-radicalize” anymore than Nidal Hasan or Osama bin Ladin.  He was taught.  He was taught the purest form of Islam, the Fundamentals of Islam. He believed it, he consumed it, and finally it consumed him.  His actions were based on his faith in his Scriptures (Koran), his prophet (Muhammad), and his god (Allah).

“We Love Death more than You Love Life”

The first victim of Islam is the Muslim.  Islam is, as I have pointed out before, a Great Black Beast.  It will consume everyone in its path if left unchecked, until finally there is no competing religion or ideology permitted.  There is a creed that surfaces occasionally when studying the Islamic culture which is so shaped by the obligatory act of jihad: “We love death more than you love life.” It has been a part of Islam since its earliest doctrines were formulated during that period immediately following Muhammad’s death in 632 (AD). This is that age of Islamic conquest the four “Rightly Guided Caliphs”, It is used by Hamas in their propaganda media.  It was recently used in a letter to the British government by six terrorists who pleaded guilty of planning an attack on the EDL last year.   It was repeated by the Madrid terrorists and actually earned a slide in a power point presentation by Nidal Hassan prior to his jihad attack which resulted in 13 dead and 32 wounded at Fort Hood, Texas. Islam is the largest death cult in the world. Those countries and regions where Islam rules unchecked are anything but bastions of freedom.

CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) came up with a new word in order to try to embarrass and defeat anyone who opposes Islam.  They have been quite successful in defining the Islamic narrative in the United States.  That word is “Islamophobia”. The goal is to paint opposition to Islam as bigoted, racist, and xenophobic.  It doesn’t stick.  Sorry CAIR, I am not afraid of Islam, I am not a racist, nor am I a bigot.   But I will tell you what true “Islamophobia” is.  Just as the word says, “Fear of Islam”.  But CAIR has misplaced the word.

Islamophobia is when a free press self-censors for fear of offending Muslims and consequential retribution from Islam.

Islamophobic is a government which refuses to name the enemy in a war which has been declared on the United States of America by the collective ideology called Islam, for fear of political influence of CAIR, ISNA, ICNA among Islamic organizations, and fear the Saudi’s will pull out of Wall Street and crash our economy.

Islamophobic is a White House which is more interested in “winning the hearts and minds” of a sworn enemy than defeating him, while Islamic groups like CAIR and the OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference) filter every training manual and terrorism report issued by the Pentagon.

Islamophobia is when a military acquiesces to the demands of that same sworn enemy to deny Christian or Jewish religious ministry to its own soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen on sovereign soil of our military bases in Afghanistan, but allows an Imam to pray over our dead SEAL’s at Baghram AFB, damning their souls in the name of Allah.

Islamophobic is a President who is more interested in punishing the producer of a two-bit video “slandering the prophet” than he is about punishing those who murdered 4Americans in Benghazi, Libya in a jihad attack, for fear that he will lose the upcoming election if he offends Muslims.

Islamophobia is an Attorney General who vows to prosecute those who say anything critical of Islam.  THAT, my friends is “Islamophobia”.

In the words of Billy Vaughn, father of Aaron Vaughn, one of 26 Navy Seals killed in the “Extorsion 17” helo crash in Wardok Province in 2012, “When you hide the truth, you become part of the lie.”

Americans must face the truth.  We have allowed our government and our media to hide the truth. We have hidden our own faces from the truth.  The ideology that is Islam is fundamentally, and diametrically opposed to America and all that she stands for.

Kim Davis Broke No Law!

7 09 2015

The best commentary on the Kim Davis case I have seen yet. Anna Maria Perez nails it: Judicial tyranny by a gay activist judge. Check it out!

Flat Out Unconstitutional

Amp229

For days people have been arguing about Kim Davis’s refusal to hand out gay marriage licenses in Kentucky on social media.  This issue isn’t even about gay marriage.  The Supreme Court unconstitutionally threw out the laws and constitutional amendments of all states which banned gay marriage.  This was a large majority of the states.  These laws were legislated by legislative branches of government or voted on by the people and passed legitimately.  The Supreme Court has no constitutionally enumerated authority to rule on the Constitutionality of a law or to throw out a law. None.  You will not find these powers listed in Article 3 of the U.S. Constitution, as the 10th Amendment requires.

Federal Judge David Bunning found Kim Davis to be in contempt of court when she refused to break Kentucky state law and hand out marriage licenses to homosexual partners.  She based her decision on religious grounds. …

How Team Obama Helps the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Wage Jihad on Freedom of Expression

9 07 2015

Deborah Weiss has done extensive work and research on the OIC and their efforts in the UN to bring the globe, specifically the United States and the West into Sharia compliance.  OIC is actually have a great success in that endeavor, intimidating and bullying those who would criticize Islam and it’s prophet.  The OIC’s invention of the term “Islamophobia” has netted great progress in that endeavor, and with the Obama administrations assistance, has had a huge impact on the conversation in the American media, academia, and business worlds.  Be sure to click and read Deborah’s full monograph in PDF at the end of this post. (DTN)

The Following article from SecureFreedom.org

Washington, D.C.: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the largest Islamic organization in the world – comprised of 56 UN Member states plus the Palestinian Authority — has long been trying to silence, and ultimately criminalize, all criticism of Islam, specifically targeting America and the West.  What has largely gone unremarked is the help the OIC has received from the Obama administration to this end.

Deborah Weiss, attorney, author and expert on Islamist efforts to stifle free speech reveals in a new monograph published by the Center for Security Policy Press how the OIC is working through UN resolutions, multilateral conferences and other international vehicles to advance its agenda.  The goal of these efforts, according to the OIC’s 10-year program of action, which was launched in 2005, is to combat so-called “Islamophobia” and “defamation of religions”.  In practice, this means banning any discussion of Islamic supremacism and its many manifestations including:  jihadist terrorism, persecution of religious minorities and human rights violations committed in the name of Islam.
Upon the publication of her monograph entitled, The Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s Jihad on Free Speech, Ms. Weiss remarked:
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation is the largest and most powerful voting bloc in the United Nations and yet most Americans have never heard of it. Of particular concern is the OIC’s ten-year program which amounts to an international effort to suppress freedom of expression under the guise of protecting Islam from so-called “defamation.” This initiative, however, is in the service of OIC’s long-term mission: the world-wide implementation of Shariah, a legal-political-judicial-religious doctrine which favors Muslims over non-Muslims, men over women, and denies basic human rights and freedoms.
Ms. Weiss’ monograph documents how the Obama Administration has collaborated with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in ways that, whether intentional or unwitting, have advanced the OIC’s supremacist agenda.  As it happens, recently released State Department documents obtained by Judicial Watch through court-enforced Freedom of Information Act requests underscore the extent of Team Obama’s collusion with the OIC.
Specifically, these emails offer insights into how, in September 2012, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the White House worked with the OIC to fabricate a narrative that falsely blamed an online video “Innocence of Muslims” for the violent uprising at the U.S. special mission compound and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya.
In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, the documents reveal that the Obama administration immediately went into damage-limitation mode, with a well-coordinated effort to scapegoat the video as the cause of the attack.  Rashad Hussain, President Obama’s envoy to the OIC, reached out to the Organization’s leadership urging it to condemn the “anti-Islamic film” and “its related violence” and to respond in a way that is “consistent with Islamic principles.”
The OIC readily obliged, issuing a statement accusing the video of “incitement” – though nothing in the video called for violence against Muslims – and claiming that it “hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims” and “demonstrated serious repercussions of abuse of freedom of expression”.
The effect was to reinforce the OIC’s goal to protect Islam from “defamation” instead of supporting the US Constitutional principle of free expression.
In her monograph, Ms. Weiss elucidates examples of the escalating assault on freedom of expression that the OIC has launched against the West and their implications. She describes the critical role freedom of speech plays in preserving religious freedom, human rights and national security efforts.  As she correctly points out, “If you look around the world, you will see that freedom is the exception, not the rule.”
Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., President of the Center for Security Policy, observed that:
Deborah Weiss’ important new book is a clarion call to Americans and their federal representatives to end all cooperation with the Islamic supremacists of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, including cessation of participation in the anti-free speech “Istanbul Process” launched by Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State.  Citizens and policy-makers alike should, instead, commit themselves vigorously and unapologetically to freedom of expression – including to its employment as an indispensable weapon in the execution of a comprehensive strategy to defeat the Global Jihad Movement.”
