It was an absurd speech by an absurd president, Re: Obama’s Absurd West Point Speech, FrontPage Magazine, May 29, 2014

Friday, May 30th, 2014

President Obama’s commencement address at the United States Military Academy at West Point last Wednesday was full of lies, distortions, half-truths and delusions and was entirely self-serving. 

Nothing new there at all. 

It was also universally panned, including by his audience. 

Here are a few examples of some of the absurd things he said, some of the lies, distortions, half-truths, delusions and entirely self-serving comments he made. 

“And I would like to ask all of us here today to stand and pay tribute-not only to the veterans among us, but to the more than 2.5 million Americans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and their families.” 

Rejoinder. 

Talk is cheap and means nothing at all. Obama has done nothing in real, concrete, meaningful, terms to improve the lot, to pay tribute, to veterans and their families. In fact, he has made their lot worse, in real, concrete, meaningful, terms than it was when he took office. He may talk about paying tribute but his actions belie his words. 

“In fact, by most measures, America has rarely been stronger relative to the rest of the world.” 

Rejoinder. 

That is a total fabrication. By most measures, military, economic, virtually anything anyone can think of, America’s strength vis-a-vis the rest of the world is declining and declining rapidly. The rest of the world certainly thinks so and is busily taking advantage of American weakness…ask America’s enemies, the Russians, the Iranians, the North Koreans, the Chinese, any of them, if they think America has rarely been stronger relative to the rest of the world and the answer will be a most emphatic ‘no’. Ask any of America’s friends and allies if they aren’t worried sick and scared silly by America’s growing weakness and the answer will be a most emphatic ‘yes’. 

“Meanwhile, our economy remains the most dynamic on earth.” 

Rejoinder. 

What a crock that is. The American economy is in the toilet and has been in the toilet throughout Obama’s presidency. The economy is in terrible shape and is getting worse and worse with each passing moment. One of the major reasons is government regulation, which has increased exponentially under Obama and which stifles growth and development and movement. Another of course is Obamacare, which is quite possibly the biggest boondoggle in living memory. Whatever the American economy is it certainly isn’t healthy and it certainly isn’t dynamic. 

“The values of our founding fathers inspire leaders in parliaments and new movements in public squares around the globe.” 

Rejoinder. 

That may or may not be true, but they certainly don’t inspire Obama. From unbridled use of Executive Orders on down he has frequently and consistently ignored and violated the Constitution of the United States and the boundaries and limitations of his office. From day one he has acted like a dictator, not a president and has used the machinery of government to silence his critics and shut them up. In practical terms Americans are nowhere near as free as they were when he was elected and his dictatorial, unilateral behaviour is eroding more and more of their freedom as we speak. On top of that, the electoral/voting process itself has been compromised amid serious allegations and documented instances of widespread vote rigging and voter fraud in both of the last presidential elections. It has gotten so bad that no one can seriously believe that free and fair elections are a given in the U.S. anymore. 

“Here’s my bottom line: America must always lead on the world stage. If we don’t, no one else will. The military that you have joined is, and always will be, the backbone of that leadership.” 

Rejoinder. 

One of the great criticisms of Obama’s presidency is that America has abdicated its role as leader of the free world since he became President, that his policy of leading from behind has been disastrous for America and for America’s friends and allies as well. By his own admission, by his own track record, Obama doesn’t lead, he reacts, and then only after after long, slow deliberations and political calculations. He also constantly changes his mind according to the direction the wind is blowing in and cannot be counted on to stand up and actually carry out his rhetoric or red lines or principles of the day. That’s not leadership, that’s cowardly, craven, opportunistic, politically motivated behaviour and the direct antithesis of leadership. Its being a chameleon, not a leader. As for the military, he has eviscerated it during his presidency and its capacity to defend and protect the United States has been greatly diminished. It is simply far weaker and less capable than it was when he became president. It is growing weaker, not stronger under Obama while at the same time enemy militaries are becoming stronger, not weaker and may soon eclipse Americas. Backbone? What backbone? 

“First, let me repeat a principle I put forward at the outset of my presidency: the United States will use military force, unilaterally if necessary, when our core interests demand it-when our people are threatened; when our livelihood is at stake; or when the security of our allies is in danger.” 

Rejoinder. 

No one believes that’s true. Not America’s friends and allies, not America’s enemies, no one. America’s enemies know perfectly well they have nothing to fear militarily from Obama and America’s friends and allies concluded long ago that Obama will not use the American military to defend and protect them in any meaningful way, treaties or no treaties, obligations or no obligations, history or no history. In actual fact, Obama has demonstrated time and time again that he will not use military force, unilaterally or otherwise, when America’s core interests demand it, when America and Americans are threatened, when Americas livelihood is at stake, or when the security of Americas allies is in danger. That is his track record and he can protest all he wants, deny it all he wants, but it is there for all to see. 

“For the foreseeable future, the most direct threat to America, at home and abroad, remains terrorism,”. 

Rejoinder. 

Not once during his speech did Obama mention the source, the root, the ideological, religious foundation the terrorism threat comes from, the source, the root, the ideological, religious foundation that it is based on…Islam. Not once during his speech did he say that the terrorists which threaten America are Islamists acting in the name of Islam and that many of them are homegrown.. Not once during his speech did he mention their ultimate goal, which is to destroy freedom and democracy in the United States and turn the U.S. into an Islamic country governed by Islamic law, Sharia. He also neglected to say that he banned any investigation, discussion or even mention of the beliefs, motives, methods and goal of Islam or Islamic terrorists in all government bodies and agencies, including the military and those responsible for homeland security, and that he ordered the removal of any mention of Islam or Islamic terrorists from all training manuals and procedures, including counter-terror ones. That means one of two things…either he doesn’t believe that Islamic terrorism is a serious threat to America and Americans or he does believe it and is complicit in Islamic terrorists activities. Either way, there is no doubt that the threat posed to America and Americans by Islamic terrorists acting in the name of Islam has grown enormously during his presidency and that willingly or unwillingly he has aided and abetted that growth. 

“I also believe we need to be more transparent about both the basis of our actions, and the manner in which they are carried out-”. 

Rejoinder. 

This from the president who runs one of the least transparent administrations in history, if not the least transparent. Secrecy and lack of transparency has been a hallmark, a defining characteristic, of Obama’s presidency from the very beginning and to believe that this will change, to believe that he will change, is pure fantasy. 

“In Ukraine, Russia’s recent actions recall the days when Soviet tanks rolled into Eastern Europe. But this isn’t the Cold War. Our ability to shape world opinion helped isolate Russia right away.” 

Rejoinder. 

Russia wasn’t isolated at all. Not one European country, not one of America’s friends and allies, not one multinational, international organization took meaningful steps to prevent the Russians from doing whatever they wanted to in Ukraine. Everyone talked a good game but in the end no one did anything and the Russians were left to do as please in the country. They are still free to do as they please there and Ukraine is still at their mercy. Russia hasn’t been negatively affected in any way, shape or form because of its incursion into Ukraine and all of its partnerships and international agreements that were in place before the incursion remain in place. The Russians also just signed a humongous, long term energy agreement with China, an agreement which will be a great boon to their economy for years, for generations. Some isolation. 

“Similarly, despite frequent warnings from the United States, Israel and others, the Iranian nuclear program steadily advanced for years.” 

Rejoinder. 

The Iranian nuclear program is still advancing and Iran is on the brink of developing, possessing, deploying and using nuclear weapons. Obama has utterly failed to prevent Iran’s march to becoming a nuclear power and his policy of sanctions, appeasement, discussion, diplomacy, trust and turning a blind eye has been completely useless. Nothing that he has done will keep nuclear weapons out of the Iranian’s hands. All he is promising is more of the same and to think that more of the same will keep Iran from developing, possessing, deploying and using nuclear weapons is simply delusional. 

Those are just some of the lies, distortions, half-truths, delusions, and self-serving remarks Obama made in his speech. There are many others. 

It really was an absurd speech by an absurd president. 

America deserves much better, America needs much better, and so does the rest of the free world.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, Re: Muslim Brotherhood has a ‘significant presence’ in Canada, says study urging probe into group, National Post, May 27, 2014

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

The Muslim Brotherhood in North America (Canada/U.S.) is a just released report written by a former Privy Council intelligence analyst and recognized expert on terrorism. It says that the Muslim Brotherhood has established a “significant presence” in Canada and urges the Canadian government to conduct an inquiry to probe and investigate its activities in the country. The report was an independent effort and its author received no government or private funding. According to the report the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal “is to weaken and destroy the free and open societies within Canada and the U.S.A. from within and replace them with the heavily politicized views of…the Muslim Brotherhood,”. 

Heavily politicized views is putting it mildly. 

The ultimate goal of the Muslim Brotherhood in Canada is the same goal it has everywhere else it exists, Canada, the United States, Europe, the Middle East, everywhere. It is to impose Islam and Islamic law, Sharia, on whole populations…it is to make Islam and Islamic law, Sharia, supreme in places where it is not supreme now…it is to destroy Western freedom and democracy and values and replace them with Islam and Islamic law, Sharia…it is to turn Western countries into Islamic countries governed by Islamic law, Sharia…in the case of Canada, it is to destroy Canadian freedom and democracy and values and turn Canada into an Islamic country governed by Islamic law, Sharia. That is what the Muslim Brotherhood means to do in Canada and everywhere else it exists too. 

The Muslim Brotherhood tries to achieve its goal in a wide variety of different ways. It has been linked to violence and terrorism and incitement in various places around the world and Muslim Brotherhood operatives and sympathizers have infiltrated governments and local and national organizations at all levels…indeed, in the United States the Muslim Brotherhood has remarkable power and influence at the highest levels of government and that power and influence has played a key role in American foreign and domestic policy, to the obvious detriment of America and Americans and America’s allies. In Canada the report says that the Brotherhood tries to raise money and spread influence through domestic organizations which have “sought to systematically and repeatedly circumvent and break Canadian regulations and laws,”. The report also alleges that some of these organizations have ties to foreign organizations on Canada’s list of banned terrorist groups. This includes publicly funded organizations with charitable status. 

Given the Muslim Brotherhoods reason for being, its activities around the world, including Canada, the serious threat that Islam and Islamists pose to the free world, including Canada, and the ongoing Islamization of the free world, including Canada, the Canadian government should most definitely hold an inquiry into the Brotherhood’s activities in the country. It should do so now, before the Brotherhood and its fellow travellers do any more harm to Canadian freedom and democracy and values, before Islam and Islam subvert Canadian life even more than they have, before the Islamization of the country passes the point of no return. Not only should the Canadian government conduct an inquiry, now, it should make the findings public and act quickly to carry out whatever recommendations which might be made. 

Needless to say, it should also rigorously vet the people conducting the inquiry. 

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure after all.

A few questions vis-a-vis Britain and the European Union, Re: A return to common sense in the UK, Toronto Sun, May 26, 2014

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Is it wrong for Brits to want to keep Britain British? 

No, it is not. 

It isn’t racist either. 

Is it wrong for Brits to want to retain their British heritage, values, institutions, laws and way of life? 

No, it is not. 

It isn’t racist either. 

Is it Islamophobic for Brits to want to keep Islam and Islamists from taking over Britain and forcing everyone to live under Sharia, Islamic law? 

No, it is not. 

It isn’t racist either. 

Is it wrong for Brits to want to live under laws and regulations crafted by their own legislators and officials in their own country instead of by faceless bureaucrats in in a huge bureaucracy in a far off land that disregards their circumstances and needs? 

No, it is not. 

Is it wrong for Brits to want to retain control over their own lives and their own country instead of ceding control to the European Union in Brussels? 

No, it is not 

Is it wrong for Brits to reject de facto open boarders and mass immigration which has flooded Britain with immigrants who refuse to integrate into British life, who do not share and will never share British values, who are a drain on the economy and a threat to the state, who in fact hate Britain and everything it stands for, who regularly commit atrocities and live their lives according to their own customs and laws, not Britain’s, who try to terrorize and force Brits to do the same and who are busily trying to change the nature and character and essence of the country in their own image? 

No, it is not. 

It isn’t racist either. 

It isn’t Islamophobic either. 

Is the European Union a demonstrable, serious, fundamental, threat to Brit’s heritage, values, institutions, laws, economy and way of life, to Britain’s very existence as a free, independent country. 

Yes, it is. 

Is the the loss of Britain’s national character and way of life a staple of life in the European Union? 

Yes, it is. 

Can Britain remain British if it stays in the European Union? 

No, it can’t. 

Is it wrong for Brits to be fed up with living in the European Union and watching their country and their lives be ruined and changed irrevocably as a result? 

No, it isn’t. 

It isn’t racist or Islamophobic either. 

A great many Brits feel exactly the same way and expressed their feelings in last weekends election for their country’s seats in the European Parliament. 

An anti-European Union party called the UK Independence Party roundly defeated the pro-European parties in the election, including the Labour Party, the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats. 

It was a firm rejection of the European Union and the entirely deleterious effect it has had on the lives of Brits and on Britain itself. 

It was a vote by Brits for Britain and a rejection that was long overdue. 

Hey, maybe the British woke up in time. 

Hey, maybe Britain will remain British after all. 

God Save The Queen. 

Vive la France too for that matter because the French vote mirrored the British vote. 

For the same reasons. 

They weren’t wrong or racist or Islamophobic either. 

Hey, maybe the French woke up in time too. 

Hey, maybe France will remain French after all as well.

Pope Francis should have just stayed home, Re: “Allah Akbar” Interrupts Pope’s Mass in Bethlehem, FrontPage Magazine, May 25, 2014

Monday, May 26th, 2014

All over the Middle East Christians are being murdered, attacked, raped, tortured and mutilated in the name of Islam purely and simply because they are Christian. 

All over the Middle East Christian churches, monasteries, monuments, houses and villages are being destroyed in the name of Islam purely and simply because they are Christian. 

All over the Middle East Christians are suffering and dying at the hands of Islam and Islamists purely and simply because they are Christian. 

All over the Middle East Christians are being persecuted, oppressed, tortured and slaughtered by Islamists acting in the name of Islam purely and simply because they are Christian. 

All over the Middle East Christians are being forced by Islamists acting in the name of Islam to either renounce their faith and convert to Islam or suffer terrible consequences. 

All over the Middle East Christians are the victims of Islamic ethnic cleansing and apartheid. 

All over the Middle East Christians are leaving in droves. 

All over the Middle East the Christian presence is disappearing. 

Even in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Christ. 

All over the Middle East…except in Israel. 

To quote from an April 16, 2014 Wall Street Journal article by Ron Prosor entitled The Middle East War on Christians… 

“Today, Israel, which I represent at the United Nations, is the only country in the Middle East with a growing Christian population. Its Christian community has increased from34,000 in 1948 to 140,000 today, in large measure because of the freedoms Christians are afforded.” 

“From courtrooms to classrooms and from the chambers of Parliament to chambers of commerce, Israeli Christians are leaders in every field and discipline. Salim Joubran, a Christian Arab Israeli, has served as a Supreme Court Justice since 2003 and Makram Koury is one of the best-known actors in Israel and the youngest artist to win the Israel Prize, our highest civic honor.” 

“Father Gabriel Nadaf, a Greek Orthodox priest living in Israel, recently told me: “Human rights are not something to be taken for granted. Christians in much of the Middle East have been slaughtered and persecuted for their faith, but here in Israel they are protected.” 

Israeli Christians are also flocking to join the Israeli Defense Forces, which means they are putting their lives on the line for their country. 

None of this is new. Christians in the Middle East have been persecuted, oppressed and slaughtered in the name of Islam ever since Islam came into existence 1,400 odd years ago. 

Like the Jews. 

Islamists, believers, are acting today the way they’ve always acted. 

Did the Pope do anything at all to redress the situation, even marginally, on his just completed visit? 

No, he did not. 

Never mind redressing the situation, even marginally, he didn’t even have the courage, strength, compassion, feeling, knowledge or sense of self-preservation to seriously address it in the first place. 

In fact, by pandering to the Palestinians, by implicitly agreeing with their false narrative and sanctioning their hate and barbaric behaviour and by affording them a respect and legitimacy they have never earned and don’t deserve he encouraged them and made the situation in the Middle East worse, not better. 

Much, much worse. 

For Christians. 

For Israelis too. 

It would have been far better if he just stayed home.

Proposed trip to Vatican would be a complete waste of time, Re: Peace-broker Pope extends invitation to Israeli and Palestinian presidents to visit him at the Vatican as he visits Nativity church in Bethlehem, Daily Mail, May 25, 2014

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

Pope Francis has invited the Israeli and Palestinian presidents to come to the Vatican and pray for peace with him. 

Such a trip would be a complete waste of time because it would no more lead to peace than fielding a football, soccer, team of kindergarten students would lead to them winning the World Cup in Brazil. 

One thing and one thing only will lead to peace. 

That is the elimination of Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism from the equation. 

Until that happens, peace is simply not possible and will never happen either. 

Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism is the root cause of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians and the conflict will never be resolved until Palestinians reject it root and branch. 

The root cause of the conflict isn’t the existence of Israel or anything Israelis are doing or have ever done. It is Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism pure and simple and all of the other supposed causes, every single one of them, are nothing more than phony excuses and impediments. To think that settlements or the security barrier or anything else is preventing peace is grotesque and ignorant and blind and untrue. There is no peace because Palestinians are consumed by Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism based on their religious beliefs and because the outside world has allowed them to act out those beliefs…that’s why there’s no peace and never will be until its removed from the equation. 

Since Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism is justified, legitimized and mandated by Islam itself and has been ever since Islam came into existence 1,400 odd years ago and since Islam itself precludes peace and demands that Palestinians do everything they can to terrorize and murder Israelis and destroy Israel it is easy to see that prayers won’t solve anything. 

If the Pope really wants peace between Israelis and Palestinians he will deal with the root cause of the conflict. 

If the Pope really wants peace between Israelis and Palestinians he will demand that the Palestinians take demonstrable, concrete, measures to remove, to eliminate, Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism from the equation, from their lives and from their society, as an absolutely necessary precursor. 

The only absolutely necessary precursor. 

Since he’s not going to do that a trip to the Vatican would be a complete waste of time as all the prayers in the world, no matter who is doing the praying, won’t make the least bit of difference. 

It would be like bringing the leaders of all the Islamic counties in the Middle East to the Vatican and praying with them to end the terrible, religion based persecution, oppression and slaughter of Christians throughout the region, persecution, oppression and slaughter which is not new to our times but which has also been going on for 1,400 odd years since Islam came into existence. 

That would be a complete waste of time too. 

That won’t make the least bit of difference either.

Get him out of there, Re: Obama’s Epic Incompetence, Commentary Magazine, May 22, 2014

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

President Obama’s incompetence is staggering. It is truly of epic proportions. In the five plus years of his presidency the list of his accomplishments is blank and the list of his failures is large and growing and includes everything that he is responsible for, everything that he has touched…the economy, domestic affairs, foreign affairs, everything and anything.. America and American’s are infinitely worse off in every way anyone can think of than they were when he first took office and matters are becoming more dire with each passing day…everything, everything, is getting worse, not better. On top of all that he has consistently lied to the American people and consistently flouted, ignored and broken the law and the boundaries of his office. He has turned the United States into a basket case domestically and a laughingstock internationally and jeopardized the future and very existence of the country. 

It used to be said that Obama was arguably the worse President in American history. Given his track record from the minute he took office to the minute you are reading this there is no arguably about it any more…he is the worse President in American history and America and American’s have paid a terrible price for electing him and will continue to pay a terrible price as long as he remains in office. What will his legacy be? Failure on all fronts, every single one, that’s what. If that isn’t staggering, epic incompetence nothing is. And yes, much as he tries to blame untoward circumstances or other people for his failures the responsibility for them lies on his shoulders and is his and his alone. Former President Harry Truman famously had a sign on his desk that said The Buck Stops Here. It stops with Obama too, no matter how much he tries to convince Americans that it doesn’t. 

So what to do about it, what to do about him? 

Stop talking and writing about his transgressions and failures and incompetence and lousy performance and get him out of office. The need is urgent and the mechanisms to do it are there, including impeachment. Everyone knows about his lousy performance and that he has been and will continue to be a lousy President. Talking and writing about his transgressions and failures and incompetence and lousy performance won’t change anything. Americans have to do far more than that. They have to get him out of office now, while there is still an America left. The damage that he has done is incalculable but it is surmountable. Give him another two years in office and it may be insurmountable. 

Get him out of there, that’s what to do about it, that’s what to do about him. Impeach him, charge him, force him to resign, but get him out of there. 

It would be a failure of staggering, epic proportions if they didn’t. 

Not only for them but for the rest of the free world as well because the free world cannot possibly survive without a strong America at its helm.

Deal with the root cause or forget about it, Re: Open a Middle Road to Mideast Peace, International New York Times, May 22, 2014

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

It is not possible to open a middle road to peace between Israel and the Palestinians at the present time. 

There is no road to peace between Israel and the Palestinians at the present time, nor has there ever been for that matter. 

Why? 

Because the root cause of the conflict is not being dealt with now nor has it ever been dealt with. 

What is the root cause of the conflict? 

It isn’t the existence of Israel or anything Israelis are doing or have ever done. 

It is Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism. 

Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism that are part of the essence of Islam, part of the very fibre of Islam, part of Islam’s nature and intrinsic to its very being. 

Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism that are part and parcel of Islam itself. 

Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism that go back 1,400 years to Islam’s beginning. 

That is the root cause of the conflict, nothing else. 

All of the other supposed causes and impediments are excuses and window dressing, nothing more. 

Until Palestinians reject Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism there will never be peace between them and Israel. 

Put another way, Palestinians must reject Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism if there is ever to be peace between them and Israel. 

Want to end the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians? 

Deal with its root cause. 

Until you do, forget about it. 

Until you do, there is no road to peace and never will be. 

How can you begin to deal with its root cause? 

You can start by recognizing it. 

You can start by learning about it. 

You can start by being honest about it. 

You can start by talking about it. 

Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism…the real cause of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, the real impediment to peace between them. 

Islamic Jew hatred and anti-Semitism…the root cause of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, the thing that first must be rejected and overcome if there is ever to be peace between them. 

Deal with it. 

Are you listening John Kerry?

Start by reading the Koran, Re: Waking up the Islamist deniers, Toronto Sun, May 20, 2014

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Islamists want to make Islam and Islamic law supreme throughout the West. They don’t want to coexist with the West, they want to conquer it and force everyone in the West to live Islamic lives under Sharia, Islamic law. 

Islamists see the West, and such Western staples as freedom, democracy and human rights, as abominations and incompatible with Islam and Islamic law, which they are. They see themselves as Islamic warriors at war with the West and have no compunction in committing the most heinous atrocities because whatever they may do is justified and legitimized by Islam itself. Acting in the name of Islam, they sow destruction, terror, bloodshed and death wherever they go…they also subvert Western institutions, values and laws wherever they go and try to destroy the West from within as it were. Their influence is everywhere and their treachery, cruelty, bullying, threatening and intimidating is legion. 

Islamists and Islam have made serious inroads throughout the West and there isn’t a country in the West that hasn’t suffered serious depredations at their hands, isn’t suffering serious depredations at their hands. Unless the tide is stopped and reversed, Islamists and Islam may indeed reign supreme in the West and Westerners may indeed find themselves living Islamic lives under Islamic law, with their freedoms and institutions and human rights nothing more than relics of the past. 

One of the reasons Islamists and Islam are on the march throughout the West and are making such deep inroads in Western countries is that many, most, Westerners fail to recognize and understand just how serious the situation really is, just how vulnerable they really are. Unless they have been affected personally in some way, they don’t see Islamists and Islam as threatening at all…unless they have been affected personally in some way they simply cannot believe that Islamists and Islam mean to take over their countries and their lives or that the heinous acts committed routinely in the name of Islam are representative and commonplace and are not out of the ordinary in the least…unless they have been affected personally in some way they do not believe that the atrocities committed in countries other than theirs can possibly committed in theirs as well. That is changing to a degree as more and more people become aware of the real nature and intent of Islamists and Islam, but it remains substantially true. 

Westerners and their governments cannot possibly stop and reverse the Islamic tide unless they recognize and understand the real nature and intent of Islamists and Islam. The West will simply not survive unless that tide is stopped and reversed. Those are givens. 

That is why I urge everyone who sees this to read the Koran. That is an absolute necessity if one is to recognize and understand the real nature and intent of Islamists and Islam. After that, learn as much as you can about Islam through the ages, not the sanitized, whitewashed version but its true history from the very beginning onwards. After that, learn as much as you can about what Islamists and Islam are doing in today’s world, again not the sanitized, whitewashed version of events but events as they really are. After that, do whatever you can to stop and reverse the Islamic tide. Wake up and open your eyes. Don’t be a denier or an enabler. Be a fighter. 

For your survival, for your countries survival and for the West’s survival. 

Oh, and by the way, not all Muslims are Islamists and not all Islamists are Muslim. In fact, many, many Muslims are victimized by Islamists and Islam, suffer terribly at the hands of Islamists and Islam. 

That should be part of your education too.

No kidding, Re: Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei says nation won’t bow to pressure on nuclear talks, CTV News, May 13, 2014

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Iran is on the verge of becoming a nuclear power, of developing, possessing and using nuclear weapons, and nothing that will happen at the upcoming P5+1 talks in Vienna will prevent her from crossing the line. 

The P5+1 is made up of the United States, Russia, China, The United Kingdom, France and Germany. 

Except for the U.S. the rest are effectively irrelevant because only the Americans or the Israelis can keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power. 

Despite his rhetoric and reassurances President Obama and the Americans have done nothing and will do nothing to keep nuclear weapons out of the Iranian’s hands. 

They simply won’t do it. 

That leaves it to Israel. If nuclear weapons are to be kept out of the Iranian’s hands the Israelis will have to do it. Unless they do it is a dead certainty that Iran will become a nuclear power. 

Soon. 

Why does Israel have to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power? 

Because the Iranian’s will use their nuclear weapons against Israel as soon as they possibly can, that’s why. 

That’s a dead certainty too. 

Why does Israel have to attack and destroy Iran’s nuclear weapons development facilities? 

Soon. 

Because the consequences of not doing so would be far worse than the consequences of doing so, that’s why. 

Norman Podhoretz summed it up very well in an article published in the Wall Street Journal. 

To quote Mr. Podhoretz. 

“Given how very unlikely it is that President Obama, despite his all-options-on-the-table protestations to the contrary, would ever take military action, the only hope rests with Israel. If, then, Israel fails to strike now, Iran will get the bomb. And when it does, the Israelis will be forced to decide whether to wait for a nuclear attack and then to retaliate out of the rubble, or to pre-empt with a nuclear strike of their own. But the Iranians will be faced with the same dilemma. Under these unprecedentedly hair-trigger circumstances, it will take no time before one of them tries to beat the other to the punch.” 

“And so my counsel to the proponents of the new consensus is to consider the consequences of the unspeakable horrors that would be visited not just on Israel and Iran but on the entire region and beyond. The destruction would be far worse than any imaginable consequences of an Israeli conventional strike today when there is still a chance to put at least a temporary halt, and conceivably even a permanent one, to the relentless Iranian quest for the bomb.” 

Go Israel go. 

Your national security and national survival depends on it. 

The consequences of not going are far worse than the consequences of going…that’s the bottom line. 

Oh, and to all my fellow Americans out there…don’t forget to thank Israel when she does act. After all, you’re right up there on the Iranians nuclear weapons hit list as well.

Victory for Syria, Iran and Russia, defeat for the United States and the West…thanks Barack, Re: Iran declares victory in Syria for Assad forces, The Guardian, May 11, 2014

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has won the war in Syria according to pronouncements just made by senior officials in Iran, Syria’s close ally and supporter. According to the Iranians the effort to topple al-Assad has failed and both he and his regime will remain in place…will remain in power. 

In other words, Syria, Iran and Russia, Syria’s other close ally and supporter, won. 

In other words, the United States and the West lost. 

The result was a foregone conclusion from the very beginning. 

The only possible way that al-Assad could have been removed from power was through the use of the United States military. 

American boots on the ground and American bombs in the air. 

That was simply not going to happen and everyone knew it, which is of course why al-Assad felt that he had carte blanche to do whatever he wanted, including use chemical weapons. 

President Obama talked a good game but in refusing to use the American military to fight against al-Assad and his forces he guaranteed that al-Assad and his regime would win the war and stay in power. 

All of his rhetoric and tough talk was meaningless in the end because he refused to make a real commitment and use the American military to bring al-Assad and his regime down. 

For completely misguided reasons Obama wanted to remove al-Assad from power but he refused to do anything serious…anything substantial…about it, which is why al-Assad won the war, why he remains in power and why he is more powerful than ever. 

Obama shouldn’t have wanted to bring al-Assad and his regime down in the first place given what would have replaced him. 

Obama should have worked with al-Assad and supported him because it was clearly in the best interests of the United States to do so. 

So after three years, 150,000 deaths, millions of refugees and the use of chemical weapons what is America left with thanks to Obama…thanks to Obama backing the wrong horse to begin with…thanks to his dithering and not backing up his rhetoric with action…thanks to his being on the wrong side of history…thanks to his not making the national security of the United States his primary consideration…thanks to his misreading the “Arab Spring” and failing to recognize and understand its full implications…thanks to his placing ideology ahead of practicality and patriotism…thanks to him being weak and soft instead of strong and hard…thanks to him not placing America and Americans first. 

He’s turned Syria into an enemy that despises the U.S. instead of a friend the U.S. could influence and work with. 

He’s made Iran much more strong and powerful and influential in the Middle East and beyond. 

He’s allowed Russia to re-enter Middle Eastern affairs. 

He’s set off an arms race in the Middle East because America’s friends and allies, who are engaged in a religion-based power struggle and battle for supremacy with Iran, can no longer depend on America to support and defend and protect them. 

He’s made Israel far more vulnerable and open to attack. 

He’s made a preemptive, unilateral Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear weapons development facilities much more likely. 

He’s made the possibility of a full-fledged regional war much more likely, a war which could easily drag in outside forces and turn into a World War. 

He’s emboldened America’s enemies and made them much more likely to take action against the U.S. and the West. 

He’s completely destroyed America’s trust and credibility and the deterrent value of the American military in the Middle East and beyond. 

Islamists…Jihadists…of all nationalities will return from whence they came and use the lessons and skills they learned in Syria to sow destruction, bloodshed and death in their home countries, including the United States. 

And on and on. 

All to the detriment of the national security of the United States. 

All completely unnecessary. 

Farcical, inept, shortsighted, feckless, weak, lazy, two-faced, self-serving and most of all tragic…words that describe Obama’s performance to a T. 

Victory for Syria, Iran and Russia, defeat for the United States and the West…thanks Barack.
