The International Herald Tribune/New York Times is making the wrong statement and asking the wrong question, Re: In the Arab World, It’s the Past vs. the Future, International Herald Tribune/New York Times, November 26, 2011

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

No its not…its not the past as such versus the future in the Arab world, its Islam versus freedom, democracy, prosperity, secularism and pluralism.

Put another way, Islam has to be rejected if the future of the Arab world is to be free, democratic, prosperous, secular and pluralistic because freedom, democracy, prosperity, secularism and pluralism cannot possibly exist under it. They never have and they never will. Islam by definition does not allow them to and cannot allow them to and history and reality tell us precisely that. If the future of the Arab world is to be free, democratic, prosperous, secular and pluralistic Islam has to go. The Arab world will be forever regimented, repressive and imprisoned, authoritarian, poverty-stricken, tied down by Islam’s religious, spiritual and cultural imperatives and homogeneous until it does. The Arab world will be forever bound and held back by Islam until it does.

It will also be a bane on free people and free societies everywhere.

If the Arab world truly wants to be free, democratic, prosperous, secular and pluralistic the first thing it has to do is reject Islam. Until it does past, present and future “Arab springs” are meaningless and nothing more than cosmetic. Until it does real change is impossible.

The article in the International Herald Tribune/New York Times asks the following question: “Will the past bury the future in the Arab world or will the future bury the past?” That’s the wrong question. The real question should be “Will Islam bury nascent yearnings for freedom, democracy, prosperity, secularism and pluralism in the Arab world or will the Arab world rise above it and become free, democratic, prosperous, secular and pluralistic?”

The International Herald Tribune/New York Times should know that and should ask the right question. It should also stop acting as an apologist for Islam and giving it a free ride like the rest of the mainstream media in the United States does. Until it manages to do those things it will have no credibility when it reports on matters Islamic and its believability quotient will be zero.

Just a matter of time before British Columbia Supreme Court declared Islamophobic, Re: Multiple marriages declared illegal in landmark case, Vancouver Sun, November 24, 2011

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Polygamy is intrinsic to Islam. Polygamous relationships are a basic, fundamental, central part of it.

In a landmark case the Supreme Court of British Columbia has just ruled that polygamy is inherently harmful and that multiple marriages are illegal.

This is a clear criticism and rejection of an Islamic tenet that many Muslims in British Columbia and Canada practice and by extension of Islam itself. Since anyone or anything that criticizes or rejects Islam or anything related to it is labelled Islamophobic virtually instantaneously by Islamists and apologists for Islam we can expect that charge to be levelled against the B.C. Supreme Court and Chief Justice Robert Bauman, the Judge who made the ruling, any time now. British Columbia Attorney-General Shirley Bond welcomed the decision and we can expect her to be labelled Islamophobic as well. Islam being Islam and Islamists being Islamists there may even be fatwas issued against Bauman and Bond. There will also no doubt be calls in the Islamic community to ignore the ruling altogether and carry on practising polygamy as usual.

So how should British Columbians and Canadians react when, not if, when, any of these things occur? By rejecting the charges vociferously, by rejecting the ongoing Islamization of British Columbian and Canadian society and by upholding and enforcing the law, that’s how.


Think of Obama this Thanksgiving, Re: A very Obama Thanksgiving, Washington Times, November 23, 2011

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

As a proud, patriotic American I am thankful for many things this Thanksgiving. My family, my friends, the roof over my head, the food in my belly, my freedom….I am truly blessed to have all of these things and I know it. These aren’t the only things I’m thankful for though.

I am thankful to be able to work very hard to keep President Obama from being re-elected in 2012.

Obama’s performance as President has been disastrous for the country and the free world in every area I can think of and another four years in office could very well bring both to their knees, could very well bring their demise. He has been an unmitigated disaster domestically and internationally and neither the United States or the rest of the civilized world can afford four more years with him at the helm. I am thankful to have the opportunity to do whatever I can to prevent this from happening. If enough other Americans do the same we can keep him from getting elected again. We can then begin the recovery process, breathe new life into the American ideal at home and abroad and restore America to her proper place in the world.

I truly believe that Americans will reject Obama and his way of thinking and acting and that he will in fact be driven from office in the end. He fooled Americans into electing him once but won’t be able to do it again because he has no accomplishments to speak of and nothing to run on and his politics of divisiveness, blame and dishonesty simply won’t be accepted by the electorate. It is also patently obvious that he is incapable of change. He’ll be a one-term President and I am very thankful for that too.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Think of Obama when you eat your turkey because a turkey is exactly what he is.

Americans need to veto President Obama, Re: Obama: Will Veto Any Bill That Removes Automatic 1.2 Trillion In Spending Cuts, Wall Street Journal, November 21, 2011

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Americans face an automatic 1.2 trillion dollars in spending cuts by the Federal Government as a result of a bi-partisan congressional committee’s failure to agree on a deficit reduction scheme. The automatic spending cuts include hundreds of billions of dollars which will be taken from the Defense Department and are in addition to half a trillion dollars the Defense Department has already lost to deficit reduction.

These cuts go much further than diminishing America’s military might and compromising her national security at home and around the world. They make it impossible for the United States to protect itself against attack by a foreign power or powers and virtually guarantee that a foreign power or powers will attack the U.S. in the foreseeable future.

At a time when America’s antagonists are increasing their military capabilities at breakneck speed and rapidly achieving military parity or going beyond it taking money away from the Defense Department is sheer lunacy…its a death wish that will lead to destruction and death in the homeland and perhaps even the demise of the country itself. Defense Department cuts open the door for China, Iran, Russia, North Korea or any number of others to attack the United States and invites them to do exactly that. Obama’s Defense Department cuts mean war in America and probably nuclear war at that…it will happen as sure as you’re reading this and as sure as I’m writing it.

Make no mistake, a weak America is a dead America and a dominant military and the willingness to use it are absolutely essential to the country’s survival…America cannot and will not survive without both.

Obama’s refusal to defend and protect the Defense Department budget is really a refusal on his part to defend and protect the country itself. Americans need to veto Obama and toss him out of office in the next election but that election is just under a year away and in the meantime they must keep him from eviscerating the military and killing the country and themselves. It has to be done and it can be done.

Israel’s real message, Re: Israel: Iran less than a year from being “unstoppable” in pursuit of nuclear weapons, Jihad Watch, November 20, 2011

Monday, November 21st, 2011

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak just said that within a year Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons will be unstoppable and that Iran will possess nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them shortly thereafter.

What Barak was really saying was that within the next year, sooner rather than later, Israel will attack Iran’s nuclear facilities in an effort to dismantle, disable or destroy them.

Israel simply cannot allow Iran to become a nuclear power because there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that Iran will attack her with nuclear weapons at the earliest possible opportunity. Although the consequences of a preemptive Israeli strike on Iran would be horrific they are nowhere near as horrific as the consequences of an Iranian strike on Israel. Those consequences include the destruction of Israel itself and the death of millions upon millions of Israelis. If an Israeli attack on Iran is the only way to keep that from happening, and it is thanks to President Obama’s fecklessness and the Iranians all consuming Islam based mindless desire to rid the Middle East of Jews and Israel, so be it. Kill or be killed is an old story in the Middle East, perhaps the oldest story of all. Either Iran will kill Israel with nuclear weapons or Israel will kill Iran’s nuclear weapons program before it gets a chance to.

Bet on Israel. And be thankful to her as well. Nuclear armageddon is something no sane person wants and nuclear armageddon is exactly what the world would get if Iran possessed nuclear weapons.

President Obama, the Iranians and Islam. What a deadly combination that is.

Reality of Islam impossible to dispute, Re: Reality of Islam hard to dispute, Toronto Sun, November 20, 2011

Monday, November 21st, 2011

The Toronto Sun is wrong. The reality of Islam is not hard to dispute at all. It is in fact impossible to dispute. Islam tells us what it is all about in clear, unequivocal terms and has since it first came into existence 1,400 odd years ago. It also shows us what it is all about by the acts perpetrated in its name every single day all over the world and which have been an intrinsic part of its manifestation from the very beginning.

The reality of Islam is conquest and submission. Its purpose is to conquer non-believers and force them to submit to its dictates, to live under its precepts and teachings and according to Islamic law. There is no room for any other way of thinking or any other way of life. That is what Islam tells us. Conquest and submission of non-believers is its purpose and that is impossible to dispute. Not hard to dispute, impossible to dispute.

So how does Islam manifest itself in the world? Through intolerance, hatred, violence, cruelty, misogyny, war, persecution, torture, death, desecration and destruction of anyone and anything that stands in its way, that’s how. All of those things are the reality of Islam and have been a fundamental part of it from the very beginning as well. That too is impossible to dispute. Not hard to dispute, impossible to dispute.

That’s the way it is and that’s the way its always been and anyone who says anything different is either blind as a bat, ignorant or has some ulterior motive, conquest and submission of non-believers for example.

While the nature and essence and reality of Islam is impossible to dispute, it may soon become impossible to say so, or to question or criticize it in any way, shape or form either. The Islamization of Western countries is well and truly underway and freedom, democracy, secularism, pluralism and all the other hallmarks of Western civilization are under attack by Islam and in danger of disappearing everywhere we look. They have already disappeared in many places in the West, including many places in the United States and Britain, freedom’s great bastions. The horror stories are all around us and unless we reject Islam and its manifestations and fight back against the Islamic scourge we will fall prey to it and a new dark age will descend upon the world.

That’s also the reality of Islam and impossible to dispute. Or ignore.

My heart belongs to Groucho, Re: Loud, but lame, New York Post, November 18, 2011

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

Groucho Marx.

Occupy Wall Streeters look for trouble, find it everywhere, diagnose it incorrectly and want to apply the wrong remedies.


That covers it. Between Groucho and me we’ve defined Occupy Wall Streeters in a nutshell and given everyone else cause to reject, ignore and laugh at them and get on with life, as if there wasn’t enough cause already.

Reject them? Absolutely. The core of their argument is that capitalism is evil and responsible for whatever economic inequities exist in the United States and other Western countries and that socialism can redress these inequities and ensure prosperity for all. That’s their argument whether they know it or not, which most of them don’t by the way thanks to our wretched educational systems.

Capitalism is evil? Not according to the billions upon billions of people who have thrived under it it isn’t. Socialism and big government as a panacea for economic inequity? Totally ridiculous. History has already rejected that many times over and it should be rejected now too.

Ignore them? Of course. Why on earth would anyone take them seriously? Occupy Wall Streeter’s arguments and methods are juvenile and what Occupy Wall Streeters really are are spoiled children with a misguided sense of entitlement, few if any marketable skills and a non-existent work ethic who nonetheless think that they are morally and ethically superior to everyone else and that the world would be a better place if it would only operate according to their wishes. Occupy Wall Street protests and demonstrations are nothing more than giant temper tantrums by spoiled children who think in terms of platitudes, cliches and aphorisms.

If Occupy Wall Streeters can’t be ignored because they are being destructive, disruptive, demeaning and dirty they should be dealt with accordingly, sent off for a quiet time if possible or spanked (metaphorically of course) if it isn’t.

Or maybe told they can’t get up from the table until they eat their vegetables.

Laugh at them. Absolutely. Occupy Wall Streeters are pretentious, simple-minded fools and pretentious, simple-minded fools are always laughable. The Marx Brothers knew this better than anybody and created some of the greatest comedy classics ever made as a result.

Hooray for Captain Spaulding…

Message is very clear, Re: Evicting Occupy Wall Street, FrontPageMagazine, November 16, 2011

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

All over North America Occupy Wall Street tent camps are being dismantled and removed from public and private spaces, with very good reason. The tent camps are uniformly filthy and crime-ridden and have become eyesores and festering public health hazards. They are also full of hatred, bigotry, intolerance and misogyny. The tent camps also prevent ordinary citizens from enjoying and taking advantage of the public and private spaces where they are set up…its difficult to use and enjoy a park or a square if its been turned into a garbage dump occupied by hostile, nasty, smelly, simple-minded, confrontational zealots who think they are inherently superior to everyone else and see nothing wrong with trashing and ruining public and private property while spouting mindless and useless platitudes.

Not surprisingly the denizens of the tent camps are saying that the dismantling is a violation of their right to free speech and freedom of expression…that they cannot express themselves and make their points because the tent camps have been taken down.

Hogwash, utter and complete hogwash.

No one is saying or has ever said that Occupy Wall Streeters cannot protest or demonstrate in public and private spaces. They have every right to do so and no one is trying to take that right away. What they do not have the right to do is set up tent camps in public and private spaces, violate municipal by-laws and provincial, state and federal law with impunity and harass, harangue and endanger other people and prevent them from going about their business. Dismantling the tent camps doesn’t mean that Occupy Wall Streeters cannot protest or demonstrate or express themselves. Far from it. It just means that they cannot do these things the way they want to. It just means that they cannot do these things at the expense of others. It just means that they don’t have free reign to act as they see fit, to act outside the rule of law and the bounds of civilized behaviour as they’ve been doing.

The message to Occupy Wall Streeters is very clear. Protest, demonstrate and express yourselves all you want…just don’t set up squats and act like pigs and savages while you’re doing so and keep the violence and crime out of it. If you can’t do that it will be done for you and rightfully so too.

Murderous madmen with missiles, Re: Missiles plan to protect Olympics, The Guardian, November 14, 2011

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Thinking of travelling to London for next summer’s Olympics? You’d better consider the possibility of being murdered or maimed by terrorists acting in the name of Islam if you are.

The Secretary of Defence in the United Kingdom just announced that surface to air missiles will be in place during the Games to help protect them from attacks by terrorists. Since surface to air missiles can only be used against airplanes or other missiles the people in charge of security are obviously concerned about the possibility of attack from the air. Flying a plane loaded with explosives into a packed Olympic Stadium or firing a missile at some other crowded venue are things terrorists acting in the name of Islam would definitely have the desire, mentality and wherewithal to do and security officials are worried about events like this taking place, with good reason all things considered.

You should be too. Even though the security operation at the London Olympics will be massive there is a very real possibility that people will be murdered or maimed in terrorist attacks by Islamists, either at the Games themselves or in other crowded areas of the city… public squares or shopping streets or restaurants or buses or subways for example. Islamic terrorism is a large and growing problem in the United Kingdom and there is no shortage of Islamists there who are willing and able to carry out such atrocities. There is also no shortage of Islamists from around the world who are willing and able do the same. Terrorist attacks of one kind or another by Islamists against civilians will almost assuredly take place in spite of the massive security operation and anyone visiting London during the Games has to be keenly aware of this.

Speaking of murdering and maiming civilians with missiles the Government of Israel just announced that all Israeli passenger planes will be fitted with enhanced missile defence systems to protect them against advanced Russian made anti-aircraft missiles looted from Gaddafi’s armed forces in Libya which have wound up in the hands of Palestinian terrorists in Gaza. Palestinian terrorists have tried to bring down Israeli passenger planes with missiles in the past and there is a real fear in Israel that they will try and do so again with the advanced weapons they now have at their disposal.

That’s passenger planes. Not military aircraft, passenger planes. That’s civilians. Not military personnel, civilians.

Madmen murdering and maiming civilians with missiles in the name of Islam…in London, in Israel, anywhere and everywhere that they can.

Ignore it or excuse it or make concessions to it or refuse to fight it and the Western world is doomed.

That’s not conjecture that’s reality.

Freedom, democracy, secularism and the American way of life are dead if it isn’t, Re: The Case for Banning Shariah Law in America, American Thinker, November 13, 2011

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

The case for banning Shariah law in the United States is really very simple and straightforward. If it is not banned every single freedom that Americans hold dear will be lost, every single one. The U.S. will no longer be a free country and Americans will no longer be a free people unless it is banned. Freedom, democracy, secularism and the American way of life…that’s the case for banning it.

What does that mean in practice? It means that freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of movement, freedom of assembly, freedom of enquiry, the right to to think and act and live according to one’s conscience and all of the other freedoms Americans cherish will disappear if it is not banned and they will all be forced to live according to the dictates of Shariah law whether they want to or not. Make no mistake, there is no freedom in Shariah law, none whatsoever. There is only forced conformity in every area of life, nothing else, conformity that is enforced by extremely harsh, cruel penalties. Shariah law and freedom are more than simply incompatible. They are two totally different things and it is utterly impossible to live as a free person under it. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Shariah law doesn’t permit any of that.

Under Shariah law I would be mutilated at best and killed at worst (in a most horrific manner I might add) for writing this. Under Shariah law you would be mutilated at best and killed at worst (in a most horrific manner I might add) for questioning or criticizing any aspect of Islam or refusing to participate in or carry out any of its rituals or requirements. Under Shariah, you would have to think and act according to the law in everything you do or suffer terrible consequences, up to and including death.

Freedom or Shariah law? That’s the choice. Americans can either ban Shariah law or lose all of their freedoms and live under it. Its very clear to anyone who wants to look.

Which of course they wouldn’t be able to do under Shariah.
