Islam and Islamists taking over Britain, Re: Britain capitulates to jihad, EuropeNews, June 30, 2013

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

June 29 was Armed Forces Day in Britain.

Lee Rigby was a British soldier who was attacked, murdered, butchered and beheaded in broad daylight on a busy street near his barracks in London last month. He was attacked, murdered, butchered and beheaded by Islamists acting in the name of Islam.

Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller are great heroes of our time. Both are tireless, passionate defenders of human rights, freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom in general and fierce critics of Islam and Islamists because Islam and Islamists destroy human rights, freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom in general wherever they are found and do it in cruel, hideous ways. Spencer and Geller do not advocate violence and never have and do not speak out against Muslims as such. They speak out against Islam and Islamists and spend their time exposing both in the hope of preserving human rights and freedom and turning back the Islamic tide.

Islamists hate them both and demonize them both because they cannot stand exposure, cannot stand the light that Spencer and Geller shine on them.

Spencer and Geller were scheduled to lay a wreath for Rigby at a memorial service on Armed Forces Day but were banned from entering Britain by the British government because their presence was deemed “not conducive to the public good.” Neither was going to speak at the service…all they were going to do was lay a wreath. They were banned because Islamists threatened violence and civil unrest if they were allowed in and the government capitulated to their demand to refuse them admission as a result.

This from a government and a country that is infested and overrun with Islamists that are destroying the fabric of the nation and rapidly turning Britain into an Islamic land governed by Sharia, Islamic law.

There is no doubt whatsoever that Islam is a large and growing presence in Britain, that British values, institutions, freedom, democracy and the British way of life are under attack and seriously threatened by Islam and Islamists, that Shariah has already usurped British law in many places, that the British people have paid and are paying an enormous price for allowing this Islamic presence in their midst, that violence and the threat of violence will become more and more prevalent, that Islamists will make more and more demands that are contrary to the nature of the country and that they will prevail in the end and destroy Britain as a free, democratic, Western country unless the situation is reversed. Keeping Spencer and Geller out doesn’t help matters at all. It makes them worse, much worse because it encourages Islamists and tells them that violence or the threat of violence will get them their way.

Keeping Spencer and Geller out was more than an affront to Lee Rigby, the British Armed Forces, British freedom, democracy, history and everything the country is supposed to stand for…it was a major victory for Islamists who are working very hard to turn Britain into an Islamic country governed by Islamic law and succeeding in large measure.

The British government should be absolutely ashamed of itself and the British people should be very angry, afraid, upset and worried., as should all of us in the West.

Think I’m exaggerating? Think free speech, free speech, freedom, democracy and human rights are alive and well in Britain? Think again. Try writing something like this or saying something like this in Britain and see what happens.

Islam and Islamists are taking over Britain alright. They’ve already taken over much of it and are well on the way to taking over the rest.

Pity that.

Americans interests don’t interest Obama, Re: The Great Disconnect, International Herald Tribune Sunday Review, June 23, 2013

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

Last January the Pew Research Center asked Americans to list their priorities for 2013 as Obama began his second term as President. Jobs and the economy, health care costs and entitlement reform and fighting poverty and reforming the tax code topped people’s lists. Gun control, immigration and climate change were at the bottom.

Nevertheless, six months into his second term Obama is prioritizing gun control, immigration and climate change and not dealing with jobs and the economy, health care costs, entitlement reform, fighting poverty or reforming the tax code even though firearm homicides are at a 30 year low, the percentage of the population that is foreign born is large, growing and unprecedented and global warming has been much lower than projected for at least the last fifteen years and even though the economy remains in terrible shape, the level of unemployment is a national disgrace, health care costs are going through the roof and will do nothing but rise as Obamacare takes hold, entitlement reform and reforming the tax code are distant dreams and poverty is endemic and becoming more widespread.

In short, Obama’s priorities are not the priorities of the American people.

What else are Americans interested in?

How about preserving their privacy?

How about preserving their freedom?

How about preserving their democracy?

How about preserving their values?

How about preserving their institutions?

How about maintaining their national security?

How about maintaining their personal safety?

How about maintaining their respect for government?

How about maintaining their trust in government?

How about maintaining their international standing and leadership role in the world?

How about being spoken to honestly and openly and not being constantly lied to?

How about being treated respectfully and not being ridiculed and denigrated all the time?

And on and on.

Obama has failed miserably in all these areas and many, many others. He has pursued a dictatorial, socialist, big government, anti-American domestic and international agenda from the very beginning and the American people, America itself and the free world have suffered terribly as a result and will continue to suffer as long as he is in office.

In truth, Obama’s interests and the interests of the American people don’t match and never have and never will and his performance in office has been catastrophic and will do nothing except get worse, not better.

He simply has to go.

Now.

The same thing that has always been wrong with it, Re: What is wrong with Islam today?, Al Jazeera English, June 22, 2013

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

What is wrong with Islam today?

The same thing that has always been wrong with it.

It is violent, cruel, barbaric, bloodthirsty, misogynistic, intolerant, supremacist, expansionist, hateful, murderous, brutal, uncompromising, atavistic, joyless and savage…it is all encompassing and all controlling and a completely proscribed way of life…criticism, examination, dissent or change is strictly forbidden and its purpose is to have everyone on earth submit to its dictates and live under Islamic rule and under Islamic law, Sharia. Among other things, it sanctions and legitimizes female genital mutilation, honor killing, amputation, beheading, death for apostasy and blasphemy, torture, brutalizing and hanging homosexuals, rape, paedophilia, hatred (especially towards Christians and Jews), apartheid, racism, sexism, slavery, murder, terror, maiming, theft and destruction. It is, in short, an affront to the human spirit and breeds nothing but violence, hatred, death, mutilation, destruction and forced conformity wherever it goes. That’s what’s wrong with Islam today and that’s what’s always been wrong with it. Twas ever thus.

It is also the biggest threat to freedom and democracy, to free countries and free peoples, that exists.

There isn’t a free country in the world that isn’t under assault by Islam.Islam threatens freedom and democracy, free countries and free peoples, in every free country in the world without exception, Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, the Scandinavian countries, Spain, the United States, every single one.

Islam is the absolute antithesis of freedom and democracy and Islam and freedom and democracy cannot possibly coexist. Nevertheless, it is on the march throughout the free world and freedom and democracy are under attack and being jeopardized and disappearing as we speak.

Don’t believe me? Wherever you live in the free world just look around and tell me that Islam isn’t threatening your freedom and democracy and your way of life, tell me that Islam is having a positive effect on your country, tell me that Islam isn’t as I have described it, tell me that Islam and freedom and democracy and Western values in general are compatible.

If your eyes are open and you’re honest you can’t.

Fight back and rid yourselves of this plague and poison in your midst.

While you still can.

It Most Certainly Isn’t, Re: Silence is Not an Option, Right Side News, June 20, 2013

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

The United States of America is a mess.

The United States of America is in deep, deep trouble.

The United States of America may not survive.

Our civil liberties are being stripped away.

Our freedom is disappearing.

Our Constitution is being shredded.

Our economy is in the toilet.

Our national debt is beyond belief.

Islamists have infiltrated government and are working very hard to turn the country into an Islamic state governed by Islamic law.

Domestic terrorism is a large and growing phenomenon.

Racism, violence, poverty and hopelessness plague us all.

Our institutions can no longer protect or serve us.

Our values are being mocked and derided.

Our military is being eviscerated.

Our government is keeping us all under surveillance twenty four hours a day three hundred and sixty five days a year.

Our government constantly lies to us.

Our government colludes with our enemies.

Our foreign policy is a shambles.

Our trust in government is sinking.

Our respect for government is sinking.

We are becoming more and more alienated and disillusioned daily.

Our quality of life is shrinking and disappearing.

Our national characteristics are being submerged.

We are drowning in bureaucracy, regulations and political correctness.

We are becoming an insular and ignorant people.

We are becoming a laughingstock internationally.

We are weak instead of strong.

Our future is bleak instead of bright.

We are more vulnerable to attack than we’ve ever been.

We are led by a buffoon in the White House who is no more capable of being President than I am of flying to the moon and who has caused and presided over the biggest decline in our history.

And on and on…the list could go on for pages.

Can things be turned around?

Yes they can.

Who can turn them around?

You and me, that’s who.

The American people, that’s who.

Certainly not the bum in the White House and his cronies, acolytes and fellow travellers, that’s for sure.

They’re the ones who got us in this mess in the first place.

Silence is most certainly not an option.

The time to take back our country is now.

Get angry, speak out and don’t put up with this bull….any more.

The time to act is now.

While we still can.

Our country’s survival and our own survival depend on it.

So does the survival of Western civilization and the free world because neither can or will survive without a strong America.

Reading this makes you a suspicious person you know, Re: Big Brother’s spying on us. SO WHAT?, National Post, June 17, 2013

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Why shouldn’t government spy on Americans twenty four hours a day three hundred and sixty five days a year for life?

So what, you ask?

Because reading this makes you a suspicious person.

Because in this internet age government can control every aspect of your life and can destroy you in a heartbeat with a few keystrokes if it wishes.

Because even the most innocuous and innocent activities can be taken out of context or viewed as suspicious and bring government down on you.

Because you’re no longer free to express yourself for fear of bringing yourself to government’s attention. Can criticizing government or speaking out against the government line bring government down on you? You bet it can. Will it? You bet it will.

Because you may think you have nothing to hide but government may think differently and ruin your life because it does.

Because your freedom of association is also taken away…if government doesn’t like who you’re associating with or views people you associate with as suspicious, even if they’re relatives or even if you know nothing about why government sees them as suspicious in the first place, that makes you suspicious as well.

Because government being government it won’t stop with spying on you and documenting everything about you, with keeping its eyes and ears on you twenty four hours a day three hundred and sixty five days a year for life. Taking away freedom of movement could very well be next and after that taking away other freedoms you take for granted as well. Will that happen if it gets away with this constant spying on you? Yes it will. Absolutely it will.

Because if government doesn’t like what you read or how you think or disapproves of your political activities or anything else about you it can intrude on your life and force you to act as it wants you to…because government can smear you and ruin you and throw you in jail if it doesn’t like you. You don’t think government will use the information it gathers about you against you, will use it to keep you in line? Think again. Of course it will.

Because that old canard about having nothing to fear if you’re innocent and have nothing to hide is simply untrue. Virtually anything can be misconstrued or seen as suspicious and innocent people get hurt all the time by government. In fact, the bigger the government program the more innocent people get hurt and mass spying is one of the biggest government programs there is.

Because there are much better ways to prevent terrorism and foil terrorists than trampling on our civil liberties and spying on us all twenty four hours a day three hundred and sixty five days a year for life. Israel has arguably been more successful than any other country in foiling terrorists and preventing terrorist attacks and it doesn’t spy on its population like that.

Because government spying on us all twenty four hours a day three hundred and sixty five days a year for life will lead to mass conformity and allow government to dictate every aspect of our lives according to its wishes.

Because government spying on us all twenty four hours a day three hundred and sixty five days a year for life will lead to millions of scapegoats, one of whom could be you. Or me. Or anyone.

Because malice and prejudice and ignorance will enter into it.

Because government spying on us all twenty four hours a day twenty four hours a day three hundred and sixty five days a year for life makes a mockery of everything the United States of America stands for and has always stood for and is about as anti-American as you can get.

Because being spied on by government twenty four hours a day three hundred and sixty five days a year for life means you’re no longer free and are at the mercy of government.

So what?

That’s what.

Now bring this obscenity to an end and save your freedom and your country.

While it is still possible.

Obama’s dumb and arguably treasonous Syrian decision, Re: Bad Idea, Mr. President, New York Times, June 16, 2013

Monday, June 17th, 2013

President Obama’s decision to intervene in Syria by arming the rebels there is not just dumb, it is directly antithetical to America’s best interests in the Middle East and beyond and is arguably treasonous.

For one thing rebel forces include al-Qaeda and other armed groups dedicated to the destruction of the United States. In fact, rebel forces may be made up primarily of groups dedicated to the destruction of the U.S., including al-Qaeda. They are America’s enemies, enemies who are at war with the United States, enemies who have made no secret of their hatred and disgust for all things American and of their desire to bring America down and turn the U.S. into an Islamic country governed by Islamic law. They are the same Islamists who were responsible for 9/11 and any number of other anti-American and anti-Western atrocities and arming them guarantees that the arms will eventually be used against America and the West. Talk about arming your enemy…that’s exactly what Obama would be doing by supplying arms to the rebels and that will result in American and Western deaths and is simply dumb.

For another, if the rebels succeed in toppling the Assad regime in Damascus and replace it with a government of their own making the resulting bloodbath will dwarf anything we have seen in Syria so far. That is because the war there is nothing more than an extension of the Sunni-Shia conflict that has riven Islam from its beginning. The war in Syria is not a civil war or a secular war, it is a religious war and if the rebels win with the assistance of American arms there will be ethnic and religious cleansing on an unimaginable scale, bloodshed and death on an unimaginable scale.

For another, Israel is America’s only true friend in the Middle East and is vital to the national security of the United States. If the rebels win and the Assad regime falls Israel’s national security will be compromised and jeopardized and so will the national security of the U.S. At the very least Israel will have to fight for her existence, America will be forced to fight alongside her, millions of lives will be lost and nuclear weapons may very well be used.

For another, anyone who thinks Obama will be able to stop with supplying arms to the rebels is dead wrong. Supplying American arms today will lead to American planes in the sky tomorrow and will lead to American boots on the ground the day after as sure as I am writing this and as sure as you are reading it.

For another, the rebels clearly do not have the support or trust of a majority of the Syrian population, whereas Assad does. That is why he is surviving and winning. Even with the support he is receiving from Russia and Iran he wouldn’t be doing either if he wasn’t backed by a majority of the general population…it simply wouldn’t be possible.

Ironic isn’t it? Russia and Iran helping Assad and acting in America’s best interests by keeping the rebels out of power, which is of course what Obama should be doing instead of supplying arms to them.

In fact, if Obama really wanted to act in America’s best interests (which should of course be his only consideration) he would do everything he could to keep Assad in power and the rebels out of it.

Obama supplying arms to the rebels.

Dumb.

And treasonous.

After all, women are nothing more than chattels that can be used, abused and discarded at will, Re: Islamic states reject as un-Islamic UN Human Rights Council resolution condemning violence against women, Jihad Watch, June 15, 2013

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

Islamic states belonging to the United Nations Human Rights Council have rejected a resolution on the elimination of all forms of violence against women because violence against women is part of the very essence of Islam and the resolution was seen as un-Islamic. The rejection was a foregone conclusion. After all, under Islam women are nothing more than chattels that can be used, abused and discarded at will and violence against them is enshrined in Islamic law and practice and has been endemic among believers from Islams beginning.

To quote from an earlier piece I wrote on this site…

Misogyny and maltreatment of women are fundamental precepts and defining characteristics of Islam. Under Islam women are treated as chattels, marginalized, dehumanized, objectified, mistreated, beaten, raped, disfigured, persecuted, dominated and killed as a matter of course. This is all perfectly legitimate and is sanctified by Allah’s revelations, the Koran, Muhammad’s behavior and Islamic law. It is endemic in Islamic societies now and has been since Islam first came into existence. Women have no legal rights under Islam at all, including the most basic ones of all, the right to life and the right to personal safety and security. Among other things, Islam teaches that a woman is worth less than a man, women are required to cover themselves, women are not allowed to be alone with a man who is not a relative, husbands are allowed to beat their wives, the testimony of a woman in court is worth half of a man’s, women cannot travel by themselves, adulterers are to be put to death, a woman must have four male witnesses to prove rape and her testimony is not accepted and on and on in the same vein. In Islam women are under the charge of men and completely subservient to them, be they husbands, fathers, sons, relatives or others.

Equality of the sexes? It doesn’t exist in Islam and never has.

All of this applies to women in general too, not just Muslim women or women who have converted or been forced to convert to Islam.

Which of course accounts for the rise in violence against women in Western countries with large and growing immigrant populations from Islamic countries, Britain, France, Germany, Australia, the Scandinavian countries, Canada and the United States among them. Islamists believe they can do anything they want to with women and often do because Islam tells them they can.

That about covers it.

Rejecting the UNHRC resolution was not surprising at all, not to anyone who knows what Islam is really all about and how it manifests itself in the world anyway.

Western women who think Islam is benign and harmless towards women, who excuse or ignore the treatment of women in the Islamic world, or who think they would be treated differently than their sisters in the Islamic world if they lived in it, are sadly mistaken.

It isn’t, there is no excuse and they wouldn’t be.

There’s Only One Answer, Re: The Greatest Scandal of Them All, FrontPage Magazine, June 11, 2013

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

My fellow Americans.

Former U.S. President John Fitzgerald Kennedy once said “ask not what your country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country”.

There’s only one answer.

Remove current U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama from office. Impeach him, arrest him, shame him into leaving, whatever…take whatever legal means necessary to get rid of him, to get him out of the White House.

Do it now. Not tomorrow or next week or next month, but now. Your future, the future of your children, the future of the country and the future of the free world depend on it because the country and the free world cannot survive with him at the helm and the survival of both is more and more jeopardized with each passing day.

Under Obama and his minions your freedom has been eviscerated, your economy has been ruined, your military strength has been eroded, your civil liberties have been stripped away, your future has been mortgaged, your personal safety and security have been compromised, your government and institutions have become infested with Islamists who want to turn the country into an Islamic state governed by Islamic law, your values and history have been mocked and denigrated and subjected to historical revisionism, your country has been divided racially and socially as politics of hatred, envy, expediency and political correctness have risen to the forefront, your country’s credibility and influence have been reduced to next to nothing internationally and big government now intrudes on and controls every aspect of your life. You have been lied to and manipulated and a large and growing number of you no longer trust or respect government or the office of the President and feel alienated, wary and frightened of both, with very good reason. Your freedom, your life, your children’s life and the life of the country have been diminished in every way since Obama became President and matters will only get continually worse for you and the country. That is why he must be removed from office now. Things will only get worse, not better, as long as he is in office and if he remains in office much longer you will no longer be able to recognize what’s left of America

There is no need to list Obama’s failures and transgressions or to speculate about why they have occurred. Whether he is clueless, incompetent, ideologically driven, malevolent or all of the above is irrelevant. The point is they have occurred and will continue to occur whatever his reasons and motivations are…the point is American’s lives and the life of the country will continue to be diminished as long as he remains in office…the point is Americans can only expect more of the same as long as he is President…the point is Americans must rise up now and take back their country while they still can and while there is still a country to take back.

What can Americans do for their country?

Get Obama out of the White House that’s what.

Putting someone like him in the White House was scandalous to begin with. Allowing him to remain there and destroy people’s lives and the country itself would be even more so, would be the greatest scandal of them all.

It would also be suicidal.
