A Beheading Ends All
Illusions About Islam

FrontPage Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/25/2014 10:46:21 AM

In August 2012, James Foley retweeted a link to a CNN story asking “Right-wing extremist terrorism as deadly a threat as al Qaeda?” The article concluded that indeed it was. Three months later, Foley had been kidnapped. Two years later, on another August, a former branch of Al Qaeda chopped off his head. In a New Yorker interview this year, which seemed to focus on the Lakers more than anything else, Obama wrote off ISIS as what happens when a “jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms”. He suggested that the answer lay in training the Iraqi police forces better.

After all this time, after all these beheadings (and other atrocities), somebody still has illusions about Islam?

... as I have mentioned before ... if you don´t harbor some degree of islamophobia in you heart, you are a fool.

There are only two types of muslim: a significant percentage of those that will actually kill you, and the balance who simply want you dead.

The conservative journals are always running these grandiose wishful headlines. Must be just to grab the attention, because the article itself was very informative and seemed to have nothing to do with the headline.

Those "right wing extremist" that Foley and his brothers in Government and Media are so afraid of, will be the same "right wing extremist" who save their bacon when the crap hits the fan. I have a feeling that we are getting close to a boiling point in this country, with Obama putting more wood on the fire every day. This won´t be pretty when push comes to shove, but I would put my money on those patriotic Americans who love and will defend this country against enemies from within and without.

But, but, but, Islam is the "religion of peace, and most Muslims are peace-loving."

They´re also too afraid of their violent thug co-religionists to do anything about them so they´re worse than useless.

Did everybody forget Daniel Pearl´s beheading? He was with the Wall Street Journal, for goodness sake, and his graphic beheading video went viral. Even I watched that in disbelief But I had also seen an even more horrific one showing a child being taught how to behead a human. We didn´t wake up then because the country has gone mad. Too busy watching Beyonce and Kardashian trollops make millions. Shame on all of us

The price of Islam denial is death

I have to say that there is something not quite right about this Foley story. Here´s a guy who got himself kidnapped twice. TWICE. You would think one would learn not to get too close ever again. But he did, a second time. And he lived for two years until it was more cost effective to dispose of him. Am I too cynical to lay some suspicion at Foley´s feet? Was he trying to support these jihadists by offering himself up for ransom? Was he the ultimate Islam denier? If so, the quote above certainly holds.

Good a place as any to say it...Foley`s parents seem to come across as hard core Democrats, and he was a `journalist` after all. The NCIS-like hating on right wingers mentioned in the article seems to clinch the argument.

Nice of them all to fall on their swords for President Mulling.

I never had any illusions about Islam. Don´t people read history anymore. Who do you think the Crusades in Europe were aimed at? Were the Christians bloodthirsty conquerers or were they fighting back from attacks made on Christians by Muslims? Look it up. Read Candide, the parts about the fear sea voyagers had of Muslim pirates in those days. Read American History and how President Jefferson fought the Barbary pirates (the same Muslim pirates from Candide) who demanded tribute from America. It stopped when he sent the Marines to the shores of Tripoli. Look at the world today. Count the wars and see how many involve Muslims attacking infidels. Answer: the majority of them. Islam is out to conquer the world, always has been and makes no bones about it. Why do we pretend otherwise?

Think about this. They´re about to get nuclear weapons.

And their fervor to inflict death is far greater than our fervor to protect our lives. Their "religion" preaches death to all others; ours says turn the other cheek. What´s that get you? Your head being used as a soccer ball.

Nigel Farage: GOP Establishment Candidate
Can´t Beat a Democrat for President
Breitbart Big Government, by Robert Wilde    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 9/8/2014 2:52:28 PM     Post Reply
On Sunday night, Nigel Farage, the Chairman of the United Kingdom Independent Party (UKIP), said that the next time Republicans prop up a “continuity, establishment candidate” for President of the United Sates, they are not going to win. Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday, airing at 7-10 pm ET on Sirius XM Patriot Radio and speaking with Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, Farage said that unless you can “energize and engage, to use an old fashioned term, the blue collar voter, you are not going to beat the Democrats.”

Conservatives working to reclaim a rudderless GOP should contemplate forming a third party, Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), said in an exclusive interview following a U.S. tour during which he met with top officials including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and News Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch. “I have no idea what the Republican Party stands for,” Farage said at the Breitbart News Embassy on Capitol Hill. “I meet lots of individuals within it who want it to say one thing or another, but collectively it’s pretty blurry, it’s pretty unclear,” Farage said of the Republican Party

Call it the Donald Sterling effect. On Sunday, Atlanta Hawks Controlling Owner Bruce Levenson announced that he will sell his interest in the team after self-reporting an "offensive" email from 2012 in which he said that white fans may be scared of black fans. "I trivialized our fans by making clichéd assumptions about their interests (i.e. hip hop vs. country, white vs. black cheerleaders, etc.) and by stereotyping their perceptions of one another (i.e. that white fans might be afraid of our black fans). By focusing on race, I also sent the unintentional and hurtful message that our white fans

Here’s what we learned from Week 2 of the college football season and what we will be talking about into next week. 1. It was a bad day for the Big Ten It started with Nebraska. The Cornhuskers were almost shocked by FCS school McNeese State, but thanks to Ameer Abdullah, they escaped unscathed. Except for maybe their egos a little bit. That set off a rough day in Big Ten country. Purdue lost to Central Michigan, Northwestern lost to Northern Illinois, Iowa barely beat Ball State, and Western Kentucky was with Illinois until the fourth quarter.

Laura Ingraham Blasts RNC For Supporting
Obama´s Planned Executive Amnesty

Radio’s Laura Ingraham, a tireless champion of anti-amnesty efforts, blasted the Republican National Committee in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News, slamming the RNC’s apparent support of President Barack Obama’s plans to grant executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. "The RNC sure seems crestfallen that President Obama didn´t sign an executive amnesty for millions of illegal workers in the U.S.,” Ingraham said in an email. “I, for one, am glad that now we all know where the GOP Establishment´s allegiance really lies -- and it´s not with the American working class that is desperately looking for its champion.”

More Senate Dems Caution Against
Executive Amnesty Before Midterms

Despite admonitions from amnesty activists, more Senate Democrats are urging Obama against extending executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, especially before the November elections, according to a Politico report. “I have concerns about executive action,” Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken, said in a statement Thursday, reported by Politico. “This is a job for Congress, and it’s time for the House to act.” In recent weeks Democrats in red states facing tough reelection races have pushed back against the president taking unilateral action on immigration reform. "This is an issue that I believe should be addressed legislatively, and not through executive order," North

President Obama insists that he still plans to make an executive decision on immigration reform, but his timeline for action grows increasingly convoluted. Obama and his team spent most of the summer previewing his executive action on immigration reform, vowing to fix what they describe as a “broken immigration system” without Congress as soon as possible. "I expect their recommendations before the end of summer, and I intend to adopt those recommendations without further delay," Obama explained in June, referring to a requested proposal from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Third Parties Won´t Save Our Country
American Thinker, by David Long    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 9/4/2014 8:18:32 AM     Post Reply
Thirty-six seats are up for grabs in the Senate and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested. Of those 36 Senate seats, 15 are currently held by Republicans while 21 are held by Democrats. Clearly, the math is on the Republican side, as is the fact that the incumbent party typically loses seats in mid-term elections. This upcoming November 2014 election is crucial for America and voting for a third party candidate will not achieve the victory. To end the Obama “Rule by Decree” power grab, we have to wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats.

Time for a More Assertive Congress

If our Congress wishes to fight its steady march into irrelevance it will have to actually go back to doing its job. Once upon a time, the first Article of the Constitution established all the powers that the Congress has and obligations that Congress must adhere to as they conduct their legislative business. Then, beginning in the 1930’s and 40’s, through the passage of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), and other actions, Congress abdicated part of its legislative authority to an ever increasing number of federal departments and agencies.

   

 



 
58 Senate Seats for the GOP?

Posted By: SpeedMaster- 9/2/2014 7:49:08 AM     Post Reply
A substantial number of political prognosticators, including the likes of the highly respected Nate Silver´s 538.com blog, give the Republicans a substantial chance of not only picking up senate seats in November, but of getting at least 51 and thus a working majority (50 seats would see a tie with Vice-President Biden giving the Dem´s a majority). Where the seers differ is not only the percentage probability of the Republicans gaining control of the senate, just how many seats the GOP will end up with. This is where the tracking poll sites like Real Clear Politics and Electoral-Vote.com come to the

The only interesting things about Douglas Carswell’s switch from the Tory Party to Ukip are that it took him so long and that he has acted alone. Any thinking person has been able to see for years that the Tory Party hates conservatives. It is a roadblock, not a road, championing the elite against the people. It is kept in being only by the BBC and various dodgy billionaires, who provide it with airtime and money out of all proportion to its real support. It has no actual aims except office at all costs. It has no actual policies either, only negative

One face is for Islam’s useful idiots the other is for Islam’s faithful. The Koran is not arranged in chronological order. When it is arranged in chronological order it is clear that the Koran undergoes a serious transition after Muhammad’s first real triumph on the battlefield at Badr in 624. The period following that battle is called the Medina period of the prophet’s life. Conceptually this transition can be seen as a transition from the Old Koran to the New Koran. Unlike the transition from the Old to the New Testament, the transition from the “Old” Koran (pre-Medina) to the “New”

A majority of the Palin family — Sarah, Todd, Bristol, and Track — was allegedly involved in a booze-filled brawl over the weekend in which the former vice presidential candidate reportedly screamed, “Don’t you know who I am?” According to reports from local bloggers, the Palin crew showed up at a party in Wasilla following a day at the Iron Dog snowmobile race. According to local blogger Amanda Coyne, witnesses at the scene said Palin’s eldest son, Track, showed up to the party in a stretch Hummer. He then confronted a man who had previously dated one of his sisters,

But this virulent display of hatred and bigotry was remarkable, and considerably different from anything I’ve previously encountered,” Cruz said, just a few hours after his pro-Israel speech to the In Defense of Christians conference was drowned

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat.

President Obama just announced that he is bringing a counter-terrorism strategy to an insurgency fight. He was at pains to repeat the phrase “counter-terror” four times in a short speech. Noting that ISIL is not a state (partly because the international community thankfully does not recognize it), he declared, “ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” Neither of those sentences, unfortunately, is true. ISIL is an insurgent group that controls enormous territory in Iraq and Syria that it governs. It maneuvers conventional light

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and
