12 step program to islamization of the United States or any other country

Do these sound familiar?

Islam's 12 Steps to Destroy Land of the Infidels:

1. - Immigrate - by the millions.

2. - Procreation – This is Islam’s greatest weapon against the kafirs (non-Muslims). Currently most Western nations think so little of their respective civilizations that they are failing to reproduce themselves above subsistence levels. As their birthrates continue to decline, breed them out. They will become so dependant on Muslim labor and so old demographically they will not be able to resist what will follow.

3. - At 5 - 10% of the population, force the host governments to set up special laws favoring the Muslims. Use the courts to gain special rights under the guise of "anti-discrimination", as other groups have successfully done in Western countries before.

4. - At 20 -30% of the population, elect Muslims to government and legislate additional laws that favor Muslims.

5. - Never Assimilate

6. - Always set-up small Muslim communities to hide in. Even better, concentrate in small cities and take complete control of their governments, example, Dearborn, Michigan.

7. - Never accept the host’s customs; make them accept Muslim customs.

8. – Use their liberal traditions against them whenever possible. Currently being labelled a “racist” is a fate that is worse than death in most Western countries. When they oppress Muslims and seek to stem their tide, use their fear of that word against them. They will never be able to convincingly assert that discrimination against one group is bad (e.g gays) while maintaining that discrimination against Muslims is good without appearing to be hypocritical and intellectually corrupt, thus they will lose the propaganda war. Recruit liberal academics and media outlets to assist in this campaign.

9. - Assassination - when the Muslim population exceeds 30 - 50% of the total population, start the terror killings & bombings as soon as possible. It will effectively weaken the host nation to the extent that it will no longer be able to function.

10. - If anyone is going to testify against a Muslim in court, kill them before the trial.

11. - At 50 -70% of the population, seek the total submission of the host society to Islamic Law by all means necessary (legal, military, terror, social coercion, etc)

12. - If step eleven fails initially, seek extensive international help from other Islamic states and the UN in order to create a separate Muslim Republic within the host country’s borders, using racial and religious discrimination against the Muslim population as a pretext. At a later date, when it is advantageous to do so, repeat step eleven until successful.

The Daily Catch videos for 2-28-2011: Civil war in France, Sunday Night Video: DJ Gaddafi – Zenga Zenga:

Civil War coming or has it already started in Europe?

Sunday Night Video: DJ Gaddafi – Zenga Zenga (the remix
From Creeping Sharia

Since there is a sharia-compliant version, we decided to post the version that has gone viral.

A remix of a rambling 75-minute speech Gadhafi delivered on Tuesday, set to dance music and featuring the strongman alongside footage of two gyrating girls, has gone viral on the Internet. It has racked up almost half a million views on the video-sharing website YouTube since it was posted three days ago. Called “Zenga Zenga,” the music video mixes Gadhafi’s quotes with club beats, using lines in which he vows to fight “inch by inch, home by home, alley by alley” as the chorus for the song. The clip was created by Israeli musician and DJ Noy Alooshe and appears to be wildly popular in the Arab world despite its origins in the Jewish state.

He has also posted online a version of the spoof hit without the scantily clad dancing girls to take into account sensibilities in the Muslim world. That version has some catching up to do in terms of popularity, with about 50,000 hits so far.

“There were some curses, but still most said it was a great remix,” Alooshe said.

“One guy even said that when Gadhafi falls we will dance to this remix in the streets of Tripoli – that would really be something.”

Guest post from by Nash Montana.

Obama Completes His Trifecta: ********** With a bold political announcement, President Barack Obama has completed the trifecta -- de facto coups which bring into his White House the powers and functions of the other two branches, as outlined in our Constitution. ********** That document assigns the legislative function to Congress, but the Executive Branch blithely and routinely co-opts that power by run-arounds and choosing to enforce or not enforce duly passed laws of the Legislature. Notable examples in the scant couple of years The One has been in office include: refusal to enforce voting laws against intimidation at the polls in Chicago, efforts to use the regulatory functions of the EPA to circumvent the specific legislation of Congress to ban cap-and-trade, refusal to enforce immigration laws, and attempts by the FCC to regulate matters banned from its jurisdiction by law. ********** We need not even mention the undemocratic parliamentary tactics and outright bribery used by Obama and his allies to ram through the unpopular and clearly unconstitutional ObamaCare bill -- without it even having been read by most Congress members. ********** On the judiciary side, we witness the executive ignoring a Federal Court ruling on ObamaCare's unconstitutionality, the refusal -- to the point where an order of compliance had to be issued from the bench -- to refrain from imposing an illegal moratorium on oil drilling; and, now the clearest and most blatant power grab of all. Obama has arrogated to himself, in the matter of DOMA, the power to declare that law unconstitutional and order his Justice Department not to contest lawsuits challenging it. ********** In the meantime, while usurping and/or undercutting the legitimate powers and functions of the other two branches, in the three areas for which the Executive does have power and responsibility -- faithfully executing the laws, conducting foreign policy, and commanding the armed forces -- this megalomaniacal narcissist has proven a spectacular failure. ********** What have we allowed to happen to the American concept of separation of powers? Are we abandoning this unique and hallowed concept for a tinpot dictatorship dressed up in a fancy suit and fancy oratory? Where and how do we stop this train to ruination?

Are Honor killings are here to stay in the USA?

A very good article by Marshall Frank brings honor killings to the top of the trash pile on what is known as islam and sharia law. The two are part and parcel and cannot be separated from one or the other. Honor Killings are increasing at an alarming rate and were imported to the USA via muslim immigrants. The tragedy known as honor killings has long been a part islam. It is used to restore family honor when such honor has been tarnished or sullied by some offense committed, usually by a female family member, under islamic sharia law. The punishment is usually death or some type of hideous punishment such as whippings, beatings, torture, punishing other members of the family. Honor killings are here to stay and will get worse as the muslim population continues to grow. Thanks to the mullah in the White House, the first muslim potus, we can all look forward to way too many muslims being allowed into the United States. Just one more reason to ban any and all muslim immigration. Many of the honor killings noted below have been reported on here and on many other counter jihadist, conservative sites and blogs.

We can never over report this horrendous act against mainly women and girls. To be silent would be what so many people already do. I refuse to ever be silenced or sit still in the face of the islamic onslaught that is now being waged against the free world. To do so is the same as being dead. I do not plan on being there for a very long time.

The Rise of Honor Killings in America
By Marshall Frank

This past week, a Phoenix jury convicted an Iraqi Muslim (not a terrorist) of killing his daughter in 2009 by deliberately running her over with a car. The reason: The 20-year-old college girl refused an arranged marriage, had her own boyfriend and had become too westernized. Question: Why choose to live in a western society if being westernized is so horrible?

Here’s the article:

In 2008, a ‘moderate” Muslim man from Jonesboro, Ga., strangled his own daughter to death in her bed with a bungee cord because she wanted a divorce from an older man who she was forced to marry.

In 2009, a model “moderate” Muslim man, who owned a New York television station meant to portray Islam in a positive light, murdered and beheaded his wife for wanting a divorce. Ironically, he was only convicted of 2nd Degree Murder, though it was clearly premeditated.

In 2008, a “moderate” Muslim shot both his teenage daughters to death for dating non-Muslims. He fled the country and is still at large.

In 2009, a 17 year-old Ohio girl converted to Christianity then fled to Florida seeking asylum, in dire fear of her Muslim father who threatened her with honor killing.

These are some of the atrocities within Muslim families that have made it to news print. How many others do not? In Turkey, it was reported that the incidents of honor killings were rising at such an alarming rate, that they had to think of a way to make it appear otherwise. The answer: Forced suicides. A girl who disgraced the family is made to enter a locked room with no provisions, never to be reopened while she’s alive, and the only objects present are a gun, a rope and a box of poison. One Turkish city is called “Suicide City” because 75 percent of victims are female.

lawfare1In America ninety-nine percent of the cases, it is the females who are victimized, yet no woman’s group has the courage to come forward and condemn this barbaric practice. One can only imagine how many women, young and old, are living in state of slavery, in fear of death should they want to speak out, refuse an arranged marriage, convert to another religion, or form a relationship outside of Islam. Yes, many Muslim women will claim their love for living as a Muslim, but once they do, what free choices do they have?

Statistics show that at least 5,000 honor killings occur annually, and many more possible that are not reported or disguised as something else, i.e. murder, suicide, accident.

This does not take into account other forms of barbarism toward women in the Islamic world, including mass genital mutilation, beatings (allowed by law), rape, forced marriages, and sheer domination, better known as slavery.

Yet, as Sharia creeps into the U.S., the women’s groups pay no mind and remain eerily silent. And people — like me — who disclose this kind of information, are labeled as “racist” “Intolerant” “Hate mongers.”

You figure.

Where are the 'moderate muslims? MIA.

I have often called out the so called moderate muslims of those who follow islam and are 'different' from the radicals of islam, to speak out against those who use and wage radical islam. As of yet I have seen little or scant evidence that are moderate muslims who are willing to step out and condemn what is going on within islam and the muslim world. No, I am NOT talking about the wave of revolution sweeping the muslim world right now. I am talking about the supposedly huge numbers of 1.6 billion muslims world wide who do not support the Wahhabi's and their violent and oppressive brand of islam. Are these moderate muslims dead
or in hiding, from fear of retribution, violence from their radical brothers and sisters?

This next post was written by an Iranian born American named Amil Imani. He has done a superb job and obviously is not in lock step with those from islam who are of  'the death to America crowd.' It is a pleasure to read this post and it offers a glimmer of hope that the tide can and will be turned against islam and sharia law. The world so badly needs more people like Amil Imani.

The Missing Moderate Muslims
By Amil Imani

"I am already against the next war," read the bumper sticker on a car ahead of me. I long to tell the driver: the next war is already here; Islamists are waging it in every corner of the globe and the "moderate Muslims" are either actively supporting them, placing the blame on the West, or simply looking the other way. This war aims to wipe out everything that free people cherish, including the right of expressing their sentiments. Banishing war has been the perennial dream of mankind's best, while its worst have been frustrating its realization. To renounce war unilaterally and unconditionally is surrender and death.

Humanity has suffered horrific wars in the past. Yet, the present multi-form and multi-front war waged by Islamists has the potential of inflicting more suffering and destroying more lives than any before it. Ruthless Islamic forces are advancing rapidly in their conquests while those of freedom are acquiescing and retreating. Before long, Islamism is poised to achieve its Allah-mandated goal of cleansing the earth of all non-Muslims. Any and all means and weapons are to be enlisted in the service of this final holy war that aims to establish the Islamic Ummeh.

But Islam is a religion of peace and the great majority of Muslims are not party to any plans and actions of the radicals, so claim academic pundits, leftist journalists, and hired Islamic apologists. The incantation of these "authorities" is the lullaby that puts the people into a sleep of complacency. For an average free human busy with all manner of demands on his time and resources, would hardly want to worry about the threat of Islamism when those he believes are "in the know" emphatically claim that there is nothing to worry about. Some of these advocates of Islam go further by accusing those who sound the alarm as racist, bigot, hatemonger and much more.

But where are all the peace-loving moderate Muslims that supposedly are in great majority? The Muslims who are neither jihadists themselves, nor do they support them? I and others, time and again, have been calling upon them to stand up and show the world that they oppose the fanatical Islamists. It is small comfort even if the vast majority of Muslims are not fanatic radicals, when they do nothing to demonstrate their position. It is instructive to recall that it is invariably a minority, and more often than not a very small minority, that launches a campaign of death and destruction.

Perhaps it is wishful thinking on the part of the non-Muslims to believe that one can be a Muslim moderate, given that Islam is radical at its very core. To be a moderate Muslim demands that the person explicitly renounce much of the violent, exclusionary, and radical teachings of the Quran. By so doing, the individual issues his own death warrant in Islamic countries, is condemned as apostate if he lives in a non-Islamic land and may even earn a fatwa on his head.

It is deadly, in any confrontation, to assess the adversary through one's own mental template, because the two templates can be vastly different from each other. People in the West are accustomed in relativistic rather than absolutistic thinking. To Westerners, just about all matters range from black to white with an array of gray shades between the two poles. Absolutist thinking is enshrined in the Quran itself. When the starting point for a Muslim is the explicit fanatical words of Allah in the Quran, then the faithful are left with no choice other than literally obeying its dictates or even taking it to the next level of fanaticism. Good Muslims, for instance, do not shake hands with women, even though the Quran does not explicitly forbid it. Although the Quran stipulates that men are rulers over women, good Muslim men take it upon themselves to rule women not much better than they treat their domesticated animals.

All extreme systems operate outside of the constraints of checks-and-balances and according to the principle of negative feedback loop. That is, once it starts, the extreme becomes more and more extreme until self-destructs and takes the larger system down with it. Cancer is a case in point. It begins with only a few cells. Left unchecked, the few cells continue expanding and stop only with the death of the host.

Fanatical Islam may indeed be a minority. Yet it is a deadly cancer that has metastasized throughout the body of the world. Urgent confrontation of this advancing disease is imperative to stave it off.

Dozens of Islamist shooting wars of lesser and greater bloodletting are presently raging in the world, aided and abetted by the "moderate Muslim" majority. The so called moderate Muslims, even if they exist, are complicit in the crimes of the radicals either by providing them with funds, logistics, and new recruits or by simply failing to actively confront and unequivocally renounce them.

As is the case with cancer cells, it is the malignant minority that is death-bearing.

In Germany of the 1930s, for instance, very few people were Nazis and most Germans dismissed them as a bunch of hot-headed fools. Before long, the hot-headed few cowed in the dismissive masses and as a result millions lost their lives.

The tentacles of the Islamist hydra have deeply penetrated the world. The Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood poses a clear threat in Egypt with its large block of representatives in the parliament, but also wages its deadly campaign through its hundreds of well-established and functioning branches all over the world.

The Wahabis finance thousands of madressehs throughout the world where young boys are brainwashed into becoming fanatical footsoldiers for the Petrodollar-flush Saudis and other emirs of the Persian Gulf.

The end-of-the-world believers of the bomb-aspiring Iran's Khomeinism are busy establishing the Shia hegemony in an arc extending from the Gulf of Oman to the Mediterranean Sea.

Al Qaeda and dozens of its like-minded jihadists relentlessly carry their barbaric campaigns in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, the Philippines, the former Soviet Union republics, the Russian federation, Somalia, North Africa and parts of Europe, as well as other lands.

I keep hoping that the purported peace-loving moderate Muslims are indeed the great majority who would prove me right by demonstrating their peacefulness and moderation in action. Thus far, only a faint murmur of equivocation is all that I hear from these people.

Is "moderate Muslims" an illusion? The only viable alternative for peaceful people of Islamic background, therefore, is to leave the bondage of violent Islam altogether and join ranks with humanity's free.

The selected puppet president Ahamadinejad boasts that Iran's mullahs' nuclear train has no reverse gear and lacks brakes. He should harbor no illusions. The non-Islamist masses of Iranians will not docilely submit to the mullahs' maniacal plans. It is the unmatched force of freedom that has no reverse gear and it is the force fully capable and determined to bring the mullahs' train to a screeching halt before it is armed with the Armageddon nuclear weapons they so doggedly pursue.

British Rapper Lowkey "Sings" About America in America

Gary Fouse

Reference is made to my last posting about the hip hop event scheduled at UC Santa Cruz (America's Wackiest University) on March 2 sponsored by the Committee for Justice in Palestine. One of the performers is someone named Lowkey (Kareem Dennis), a British-Iraqi rapper whose works tend to be pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel and anti-American.. The same group of performers is schedulted to appear March 1, at UC-Irvine-sponsored by the Students for Justice in Palestine.

Here are the lyrics from Lowkey's hit entitled, Obama-Nation.

Lowkey – Obama Nation (Official Lyrics)


This track is not an attack upon the American people,

It’s an attack upon the system within which they live.

Since 1945 the United States has attempted to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments,
In the process the US has caused the end of life for several million people,

And condemned many millions more to a life of agony and despair.

[Verse 1]

The strength of your dreaming prevents you from reason,

The American dream only makes sense if you’re sleeping,

It’s just a cruel fantasy; their politics took my voice away,

But their music gave it back to me,

The land where the lumpen are consumed by consumption,

Killing themselves to shovel down food in abundance,

I guess a rapper from Britain is a rare voice,

America is capitalism on steroids,

Natives kept in casinos and reservations,

Displaced slaves never given reparations,

Take everything from Native Americans,

And wonder why i call it the racist experiment,

Afraid of your melanin, the same as it’s ever been,

That aint gonna change with the race of the president,

I see imperialism under your skin tone,

You could call it Christopher Columbus syndrome.

[Chorus 2x]

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Doesn’t make any difference when they bomb your nation.

Oh say can you see by the dawn’s early light,

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,

Whose broad stripes and bright stars through perilous fight,

For the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.

[Verse 2]

The world’s entertainer, the world’s devastator,

From Venezuela, to Mesopotamia,
Your cameras lie, cause they have to hide the savage crimes,

Committed on leaders that happen to try and nationalize,

Eating competitions? while the worlds been starving,

Beat up communism with the help of Bin Laden,

Where would your war of terror be without that man,

Every day you create more Nidal Hassan’s,

Kill a man from the military, you’re a weirdo,

But kill a wog from the Middle East you’re a hero,

Your country is causing screams that never reach your ear holes,
America inflicted a million Ground Zero’s,

Follow the dollar and swallow your humanity,

Soldier’s committing savagery you never even have to see,
Those mad at me, writing emails angrily,

I’m not anti-America, America is anti-me!

[Chorus 2x]

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Doesn’t make any difference when they bomb your nation.

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night, that our flag was still there,

Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave,

For the land of the free and the home of the brave,

[Verse 3]

I don’t care if him and Cheney are long lost relations,

What matters more is the policies, I lost my patience,

Stop debating bringing race into the conversation,

Occupation and cooperation equals profit making,

It’s over; people wake up from the dream now,

Nobel peace prize, Jay Z on speed-dial,

It’s the substance within, not the colour of your skin,

Are you the puppeteer or the puppet on the string?,

So many believed it was instantly gonna’ change,

There was still Dennis Ross, Brzezinski and Robert Gates,
What happened to Chas freeman? (AIPAC),

What happened to Tristan Anderson?,

It’s a machine that keeps that man breathing,
I have the heart to say what all the other rappers aren’t,

Words like Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan,

The wars on, and you morons were all wrong,

I call Obama a bomber cause those are your bombs.


Am I offended? You bet. Let's put this in perspective. This guy is a Brit, not an American. I do not expect any loyalty from him to my country.

Is this an example of free and constitionally-protected free speech in America? Yes, absolutely, unequivocally and all-day long.

But what gets my jingoistic juices flowing is that this puke can come here, stand on our soil, trash our country, our president, our military, and our national anthym. On our own soil.

And he is sponsored by a group of dopey, brain-washed American college students to boot.

What is it about (once) Great Britain that continually sends pukes like Dennis, Ben White, George Galloway and so many other clowns to our country to tell us how screwed up we are? Look at their own country. Now he have that ibn sharmota Anjem Choudary coming to protest in favor of sharia in front of the White House, for God's sake!

But let the show go on. I won't be there because I can't stand hip hop nor do I consider it music. I just hope that the majority of students who pass by this monstrosity and hear the anti-American lyrics stop and think about who is putting it on.

And draw the obvious conclusions.

Olive Tree Initiative Event at UC Santa Cruz

Gary Fouse

On March 2, the UC Santa Cruz (America's Wackiest University) Committee for Justice in Palestine is hosting a hip-hop event featuring among others, a British rapper named Lowkey (true name Kareem Dennis). Below is the Facebook announcement. If you go to the text and click "see more", you will come to a page that informs you that (anti-Israel) Jewish Voice for Peace and the Olive Tree Initiative ("and other human rights organizations") will have information tables at the event.


The performers.

Lowkey is more than just a rapper and pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel activist. Much of his work denounces our country as well. Here is what Nolan Chart and The Blaze have to say about Lowkey.



Another featured performer, Shadia Mansour, is a British-Palestinian rapper, who performs on the West Bank. Here is an article about her by BBC.


Also appearing is British activist Jody McIntyre. Below is an article written by McIntyre for the Independent (UK):


Then there is "Logic", another rapper "on the rise" who has teamed up with Lowkey on recordings.

So what does this all mean? For those of you unfamiliar with the Olive Tree Initiative (OTI), this is a group formed a couple of years back at UC-Irvine. It sends groups of UC students to the West Bank and Israel to meet and interact with both pro-and anti-Israeli figures and organizations. The stated intent is to expose Jewish, Muslim and other students to both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In Orange County, the project has received funding (for travel of Jewish students) from the Rose Project, which, in turn, was created by the Orange County Jewish Federation. They maintain that sending Jewish students on these trips better equips them to deal with the anti-Israel arguments as they return home and defend Israel against her detractors. The Olive Tree Initiative, which has the firm support of the University of California and its satellite campuses, has now spread to other UC campuses.

Yet many in the Jewish community are troubled by some of the pro-Palestinian figures who are involved in the itinerary. Several of these figures appear to have ties to the virulently anti-Israel International Solidarity Movement (ISM), whose program and goal is the deligitimization of Israel. (And the ISM may be the very least of their troubling associations.) For example, George S. Rishmawi, who lives in the West Bank and spoke recently at UC-Irvine, is a popular contact for OTI. He was a co-founder of ISM.

Now it appears that something else is emerging in connection with OTI on several campuses. There appears to be a surprising relationship between OTI and the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), known as Committee for Justice in Palestine at Santa Cruz. In the case of Santa Cruz, why is OTI being labeled as a "human rights" organization? And does their participation in this event imply that they as an organization are supportive of the Palestinian cause, when their announced policy is to be open to both sides? SJP makes no pretence of being open to both sides. They are fervently pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel.

Let me also be clear here; the SJP is a legal, recognized student organization on many US campuses. If a student who is involved in OTI truly believes in the Palestinian cause according to his or her own conscience, be he/she Christian, Muslim, Jew, or otherwise, that is a decision for the individual to make.

On the other hand, the OTI sells itself to donors as an entity where students of all religious persuasions can be exposed to both sides of the issue and hopefully calm down the rhetoric on campus-a worthy goal. The problem is that if OTI is, indeed, a participant in this event at Santa Cruz hosted by the Committee for Justice in Palestine ( to say nothing about the participation of Jewish Voice for Peace), even more questions have to be asked about the relationship between these two entities and the true balance of the OTI. Anyone who supports Israel and donates to OTI has the right to have this matter clarified.

Canadian Muslim professor: 'If you want sharia law, go back to the hellhole country you came from'

You will not hear this from any muslim very often. No doubt he will scorned and vilified for what he has said. Bravo to him and I could not have said this better myself.


A courageous Muslim man says what many of us would like to!

"If you want to live under sharia law, go back to the hellhole country you came from, or go to another hellhole country that lives under sharia law."

--Mahfooz Kanwar, a member of the Muslim Canadian Congress and a professor emeritus of sociology at Mount Royal University in Calgary.

The rest of the story is below.

About one dozen families who recently immigrated to Canada are demanding that the Louis Riel School Division in Winnipeg excuse their children from music and coed physical education programs for religious reasons.

The families believe that music is un-Islamic - just like the Taliban believe and then imposed on the entire population of Afghanistan - and that physical education classes should be segregated by gender even in the elementary years....

In any event, the school district is trying to find a way to adapt the curriculum to fit the wishes of these families, rather than these families adapting to fit into the school and Canadian culture.

Mahfooz Kanwar, a member of the Muslim Canadian Congress, says he has some better ideas.

"I'd tell them, this is Canada, and in Canada, we teach music and physical education in our schools. If you don't like it, leave. If you want to live under sharia law, go back to the hellhole country you came from or go to another hellhole country that lives under sharia law," said Kanwar, who is a professor emeritus of sociology at Mount Royal University in Calgary.

That might be putting things a little more forcefully than most of us would be comfortable with, but Kanwar says he is tired of hearing about such out-of-tune demands from newcomers to our country. "Immigrants to Canada should adjust to Canada, not the other way around," he argues....

“traitorous americanus” : Traitorous Teachers, Union Whiners, and Democratic Fleebaggers

I am posting this without commentary from me. This is outstanding and true.
"Earlier this week Anthony Maschek, a Columbia freshman and former Army staff sergeant, who was shot 9 times while fighting for America in northern Iraq was hissed, booed, heckled and laughed at when he tried to address his fellow students at Columbia University in NYC.

I wanted to write about the incident immediately upon hearing about it, but thought it best to let it lay for awhile before addressing the subject—otherwise my anger might have detracted from my “journalistic detachment.” As you’ll see, I’m quite calm now.

Mr. Maschek is a true hero, and a class act who will not stoop to the level of his detractors. I’m pretty much a class act myself, but I have a few years on Maschek, and I have no problem at all in stooping to the level of his detractors. In fact, they have no idea just how low I will stoop to defend myself, my family, and my country—and I have no doubt whatsoever that all three are currently under a widespread, well thought out, and well-planned systematic attack.

I wanted to write about the incident immediately upon hearing about it, but thought it best to let it lay for awhile before addressing the subject—otherwise my anger might have detracted from my “journalistic detachment.” As you’ll see, I’m quite calm now. (Link)

Mr. Maschek is a true hero, and a class act who will not stoop to the level of his detractors. I’m pretty much a class act myself, but I have a few years on Maschek, and I have no problem at all in stooping to the level of his detractors. In fact, they have no idea just how low I will stoop to defend myself, my family, and my country—and I have no doubt whatsoever that all three are currently under a widespread, well thought out, and well-planned systematic attack. (Link)

The attack is so widespread that it’s, of course, hard to choose where to begin any discussion of it, but I suppose that the incident at Columbia University, and the teacher’s strike in Wisconsin, make teaching as good a place to start as any. (Link)

The “gutless wonders” that heckled Maschek did not come from a vacuum, they come from adult “gutless wonders”—who want their larval stage “traitorous americanus” trained in the same anti-American, anti-capitalist, anti-freedom indoctrination that they went through. They want them raised to be the same arrogant, atheistic a—holes as mom and pop—the ACORN doesn’t fall far from the tree, and all that.

The adult stage of “traitorous americanus” generally are upscale social parasites who have grown rich by stealing from “we the people” via crony capitalism, and various ways of gaming the system, while working to destroy America. They have taken the phrase “biting the hand that feeds you” to new depths. Incredibly, they are proud of their back-stabbing, traitorous lifestyle, and are self-righteously smug about it all. (Link)

One can trace Columbia’s leftist slant to its infestation by Marxist professors from the German “Frankfurt School” in the 1930s - a “slant” perhaps most famously epitomized by the Cloward/Piven Strategy drawn up by two of Columbia’s professors in the 1960s. These Columbia teachers drew up their strategy as a way to destroy America as a free republic. Their fellow traitors across America think that the Cloward/Piven Strategy is just swell.

It is unfair however, to single out Columbia University for censure, as it is hardly alone in promulgating political correctness, identity politics, multiculturalism, et al. (multiculturalism is a doctrine so spurious, destructive, and putrid that even the spineless political elites of Europe are turning their backs on it). (Link) (Link)

The adult “traitorous americanus” were originally indoctrinated by “teachers” who passed on their own perverted anti-American ideology to their students. The same sort of “teachers” who are vociferously whining about the fact that the state of Wisconsin wants them to pony-up, and help the non-union taxpayers out.

The teachers we see marching in Madison are the kind of teachers who hold up the late Far Left Chicago thug Saul Alinsky as an icon. The same Alinsky that Secretary of State Clinton idolized in her youth (she may still have an Alinsky poster tacked to her bedroom wall for all I know). The same Alinsky that Columbia alumni Barack Hussein Obama used as a template for his “organizing” in Chicago (and elsewhere). (Link)

The same Alinsky that learned much of his extortion-style techniques from the Chicago mob. The same Alinsky that formed what he named the country’s first “#####-in,” and the country’s first “fart-in”—ha, ha. (Link)

After carefully reading Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals” (which Alinsky dedicated to Lucifer) I wrote an article about it a couple of years ago, in which I summed up his “philosophy.”

“So if we connect the dots in Alinsky’s portrait of the uber mensch, the ideal revolutionary/organizer, what do we see? A nihilistic schizophrenic, with a monumental ego (who is NOT, however, vaguely, or remotely egotistical), who uses the wrong reasons, irrationality, and any means necessary to reach a nonexistent goal. People buy this garbage? You bet—and they passionately promote this dangerous insanity.” (Link)

Alinsky was a traitorous, infantile ideologue who was, and is, revered by other traitorous, infantile ideologues. His evil, inane, insane doctrines are promulgated by his followers which include the National Education Association (NEA)—the huge teacher’s union (the largest in the country).

Do you have any idea of what a lousy job America’s “teachers” do educating our children? The more money “we the people” pour into the US educational system, the dumber our kids seem to get. (Link)

There’s an eighth grade civics test from 1954 that can be accessed on the Internet. It asks such questions as “Tell the provisions of each of the amendments,” and “Write the Preamble to the Constitution.” My daughter tells me that the Bill of Rights was mentioned briefly in passing one day in her school—that was the extent of her schooling in America’s founding principles. You call THAT an education? (Link)

I’m of an age where I can vouch for the fact that “back in the day” we were taught American civics in school, and we were taught to be proud of America, and the fact that we were Americans. Nowadays, more often than not the kids are taught to be, at best, neutral about the United States, and at worst ashamed of it. No, I take that last bit back—at worst they’re taught to hate America. (Link)

Not content with dumbing down America’s children, many of our “teachers” (some, no fountains of knowledge themselves) have promoted anti-American propaganda, globalism, an entitlement mentality, and other NWO, Marxist, Fascist crapola—more indoctrination than education.

I understand that there are more than just the “teacher’s” union involved in the protests in Wisconsin, and that the numbnuts marching in Madison are not representative of many, or even most union members. It’s the union leaders and the"Marching Moron Brigade” that I find detestable. (Link)

Their idea of a “debate” is apparently shouting “Fox lies, Fox lies, Fox lies,” or some other clever. catchy meme. Speaking of catchy chants, I’ve got one for them—“HEY, HEY, HO, HO, GREEDY UNIONS GOTTA GO!” (Link)

And then there’s the runaway Democratic Representatives, or as Michelle Malkin calls them the “fleebaggers”—an apropos term as the fleebaggers, like their post-Civil War carpetbagger namesakes, are avaricious, sneaky, and duplicitous.

It makes sense that both the Wisconsin and Indiana Democratic fleebaggers should have fled to Illinois—perhaps the most corrupt, liberal, and fiscally irresponsible state in the union (and that, by God, is saying something). I imagine that all the fleebaggers are enjoying their paid vacations, plotting with their cohorts on how best to avoid work and still get paid. (Link)

I’m glad I waited until after I had calmed down before writing this article, I don’t like writing when I’m angry, heck I don’t like the flash-bulb explosion of anger, period. A nice slow-burning “fire in the belly” will do just fine.

Laus Deo.

P.S. File under “a glimmer of sunshine:” The five Commissioners of Carroll County, Maryland voted to abolish their “Office of Sustainability” (as in “sustainable development”). They also “voted unanimously to drop out of the UN’s International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). They are the first governmental organization to do so.” (Link)

Bravo to the Commissioners of Carroll County! I pray this catches on like wild-fire. (Proof positive that the November elections changed the political scenery of America, top to bottom). (Link)

Libtard of the day: Union wanna be tough guy spits and almost drools.

This one has to stand alone and I did not want to infect any of the other videos I might post later tonight. A perfect example of why and what is wrong with the unions that 'represent' the public workers in so many states.


About those so called palestinians......................


I received a comment from the ORIGINAL author of this article, Avenging Apostate and have updated it with some clipping from the book he mentions in his comment. The author has an excellent site called Pedestrian Infidel. I have added the site to the blogroll here and thanks to Avenging Apostate for letting me use the article here.

Been awhile since we have heard from our good friend, Sam Hindu. This was posted a day or two ago and hit home with me. The so called palestinians are nothing but a made up imaginary people as far as the arabs and muslims are concerned. I could not agree more and this is just one more example of the LSM, any and all who hate the Jews and Israel will use anything that is against the Jews and Israel. Repeat a lie often enough and people will begin to believe it.


The master liar: Jimmy Carter
Palestine, a wrong history or lies of  the Arabs.
From Sam Hindu blog by Avenging Apostate

Why Palestinians Are Not Palestinians

As a Muslim who was born and brought up in Saudi Arabia, one of the main goals in my life had been to become a martyr while fighting the Jews in Palestine (or Hindus in Kashmir, depending on where I was). If there was one belief that I held on to, which was as dear to me as it was lie. was that the land that the Zionists were living in was the land of Muslims and it must return to the sons of Islam.

Secondly, I held on to the belief that the Jews never had any right to the land; that because they hated Muslims, and were conspiring to conquer all Muslim lands and subjugate us, they had started with Falasteen. And the evil Jews didn’t even stop there. In 1967, as if they hadn’t already taken away enough from my Palestinian brethren, they occupied Al Quds. After that, as the Jews and their lies go, they claimed to have been in Al Quds for the last 3000 years. They claimed they had made a temple there in the time of Solomon but we all had already been informed that there had never been a temple there, just Solomon’s Palace called the “Haikal-e-Suleimani” or “Haikal Suleiman”—either way, there was no temple and had never been. The Jews, on the other hand, were and had always been the most vicious of liars and the worst of enemies to the Ummah of Islam.

That is what I grew up with. Just for clarification, Falasteen is Arabic for Palestine and Al Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem.

Then, when I was about sixteen years old or so, I lost faith in the self-centered, victim-playing, brainwashing, and bloodthirsty politico-religious ideology of Islam. When I was a Muslim, it was as if my brain had been put in a straitjacket, and when I lost faith in Islam, it was as though my brain broke free for the first time in my life. I could think freely and question everything and anything I wanted to.

It was when I realized my brain’s potential to process information and then judge whether it was factual or not that I thought, “well, wait a minute, if Islam is not true then it is also possible that what Muslims say about others isn’t true either”, or something to that effect. It was thoughts like that that I came about my study of the so called Falasteenis, or Palestinian people.

Instead of starting with my own boring thoughts and words that seem to go on endlessly, I will just try to quote different people over the history who have used the words Palestinian or Palestine. Here we go:

There is no such country as ‘Palestine’; ‘Palestine’ is a term the Zionists invented!

Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi to the Pell Commission in 1937

It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but southern Syria.

Ahmed Shuqeiri to the UN Security Council in 1949

Jordan is linked to Palestine by a national relationship and a national unity forged by history and culture from earliest times. The creation of one political entity in East Jordan and another in Palestine would have no basis either in legality or as to the elements universally accepted as fundamental to a political entity.

Declaration of the 8th Palestinian National Congress

Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan, and Jordan hails every Palestinian who seeks to do his duty to his cause and his country.

The Jordanian Foreign Minister (Adwa’min pp. 4-5)

There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity, because it is in the interest of the Arabs to encourage a separate Palestinian identity in contrast to Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity is there only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian state is a new expedient to continue the fight against Zionism and for Arab unity.

Zuheir Mohsein, Member of the Supreme Council of the PLO

Palestine and Syria are one homeland. The Arab people will win by the
sword; the victory will be won by the Jihad of the Arab world.

Abdul Malik Dahamshe, an Israeli Arab Knesset member,
at a solidarity visit in Damascus, Syria [David Makovsky, Jerusalem Post,
January 24, 1995]

There is no difference between one Palestinian and another. We are all
Palestinians and we are all Syrian Arabs.

Arab MK, Abdul Darawshe [Jerusalem Institute of Western
Defence, Bulletin 3, August 15, 1997]

Above are several statements over the years by Arabs who mentioned Palestine or Palestinians. Most of these statements reveal what Arabs really think about the term. Everyone knows that there never existed a Palestinian people but now there seems to be a need to shout out to the world, “Oh give these Palestinian people their land”. My question is, “Where are the Palestinian people that we should give them their land?”

The words, Palestinian people, are used in the media and at the UN so much now that we have forgotten that there was a time when Arabs actually protested against the use of these words to describe them. They did not want to be called Palestinians, they wanted to be called Arabs or better yet, Syrians. Take a read of the following:





The above quotes are from the book “JEWS” by George E. Berkley. I have to be honest that I have not read the whole book. The only reason I even know about this book is because of its chapter 32 (that’s where the quotes are from, pages 287, 292-293) and the only reason I know about that is because it is really hard to find other books that talk about this history in as clear terms as George E. Berkley did in his chapter 32. There are other references, if anyone is interested, but they are all scattered. This was the only place I found where I could read it all condensed in the form above.

Now, of course, that does not conclude my article. I will put my boring thoughts here, just a bit. I have said this for years, Jordan is Palestine, Palestine is Jordan. Arabs have their country, they should move there and stop whining. Jordan, or Transjordan as it was called, only came about to make Arabs happy. They got what they wanted, they need to stop asking for more. In fact, in 1948, they could have gotten more but they wanted it all to themselves so they rejected the whole proposal.

Why is it that so many these days have forgotten what happened a mere 70 years ago. Forget 70 (for if people have found it easy to forget the Shoah, I don’t expect them to remember what happened around the time Israel was born either), but they have forgotten what happened a mere 40 years ago, or 20 or 10. It is easy to always side with the wrong and popular, I think and hard, and sometimes impossible, to stand with what is right.

Today the whole world is living the lie that Arabs created 40 years ago; that they are a Palestinian people whose land it is that the Jews have stolen. This is what is taught in history books and this is what is accepted as the most accepted version of the truth. You deviate from it and you’re just wrong, doesn’t matter what the facts are, you’re wrong!

Before I finish (and to stop myself from ranting on), I want to add another point. History shows us that there were people that called themselves Palestinians. But history also shows us that those people were anything but Arabs. Consider the following letter written to the New York Times in 1975 (it was later printed in The Palestinians: A Political Masquerade, Published by Americans For A Safe Israel by Arthur Kahn and Thomas Murray):

Dear Sir:

Your newspaper frequently uses the term “Palestinian” to describe a section of the Middle East population which is Arab, to differentiate it from Israeli Jews. As the holder of a Palestinian Identity Card and a Certificate of Discharge from a Palestinian Unit of the British army, I find this practice annoying and certainly untrue.

We Palestinian Jews wore the uniform of the British Army, and on our shoulder epaulettes the single word, “Palestine” in English. We tried to get permission to wear Hebrew insignia, fly the Jewish flag and be recognized as Palestinian Jews, but-no, Palestinian meant Jew and Arab, and who cared if there were fewer than 3000 Arabs as compared to 36,000 Jews in khaki? In British army nomenclature, the equivalent of a GI is BOR, meaning British Other Rank. We were formally known as POR , Palestinian Other Ranks.

So we fought the war as Palestinians, set up the Jewish Brigade as Palestinians, and I’ll be damned if I agree that only Arafat and his assassins are Palestinians.

As a Palestinian, I was arrested by the British on suspicion of smuggling immigrants into the country. As a Palestinian, I had the honor of commanding the 329th Palestinian Companyof the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (all Jews). There were no equivalent Arab units. Once a British general said to me, “Migawd I have so many things to dislike you for, for being a Jew, American born, a Palestinian-and you don’t even know how to handle a knife and fork!

So cut it out, please. Call them what you will, but not Palestinians.

Yours truly,
Joe Criden

This is a sobering look into the decline of American manufacturing. As the author notes, record industrial output means very little when we have record deficits running in manufactured goods vs. consumed goods. It really makes no difference where you live in the States. There are no regions left that have not ravaged by the loss of manufacturing products.

The current potus(sorry, I cannot capitalize that when referring to the first muslim potus)and his liberal cohorts seem to think that green technologies being made here are the ticket to solving the American manufacturing problem. Sorry to say that even with sometimes massive government funding, these start ups are leaving for the likes of China or Mexico for cheaper labor. We can thank some of the unions for that but the unions are not always at fault. One must consider the horrendous cost to industries that stem from suit after suit by the environazis and their myriad of sinister organizations.


American Manufacturing Slowly Rotting Away: How Industries Die
By Ian Fletcher

I wrote in a previous article about why America's manufacturing sector, despite record output, is actually in very deep trouble: record output doesn't prove the sector healthy when we are running a huge trade deficit in manufactured goods, i.e. consuming more goods than we produce and plugging the gap with asset sales and debt.

But this analysis of the problem only touches the quantitative surface of our ongoing industrial decline. Real industries are not abstract aggregates; they are complex ecosystems of suppliers and supply chains, skills and customer relationships, long-term investments and returns. Deindustrialization is thus a more complex process than is usually realized. It is not just layoffs and crumbling buildings; industries sicken and die in complicated ways.

To take just one example, when American producers are pushed out of foreign markets by protectionism abroad and out of domestic markets by the export subsidies of foreign nations, it is not just immediate profits that are lost. Declining sales undermine their scale economies, driving up their costs and making them even less competitive. Less profit means less money to plow into future technology development. Less access to sophisticated foreign markets means less exposure to sophisticated foreign technology and diverse foreign buyer needs.

When an industry shrinks, it ceases to support the complex web of skills, many of them outside the industry itself, upon which it depends. These skills often take years to master, so they only survive if the industry (and its supporting industries, several tiers deep into the supply chain) remain in continuous operation. The same goes for specialized suppliers. Thus, for example, in the words of the Financial Times's James Kynge:

The more Boeing outsourced, the quicker the machine-tool companies that supplied it went bust, providing opportunities for Chinese competitors to buy the technology they needed, better to supply companies like Boeing.

Similarly, America starts being invisibly shut out of future industries which struggling or dying industries would have spawned. For example, in the words of tech CEO Richard Elkus:

Just as the loss of the VCR wiped out America's ability to participate in the design and manufacture of broadcast video-recording equipment, the loss of the design and manufacturing of consumer electronic cameras in the United States virtually guaranteed the demise of its professional camera market... Thus, as the United States lost its position in consumer electronics, it began to lose its competitive base in commercial electronics as well. The losses in these related infrastructures would begin to negatively affect other down-stream industries, not the least of which was the automobile... Like an ecosystem, a competitive economy is a holistic entity, far greater than the sum of its parts. (Emphasis added.)

One important example of this is the decline of the once-supreme American semiconductor industry, visible in declining plant investment relative to the rest of the world. In 2009, the whole of North America received only 21% of the world's investment in semiconductor capital equipment, compared to 64% going to China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. The U.S. now has virtually no position in photolithographic steppers, the ultra-expensive machines, among the most sophisticated technological devices in existence, that "print" the microscopic circuits of computer chips on silicon wafers. America's lack of a position in steppers means that close collaboration between the makers of these machines and the companies that use them is no longer easy in the U.S. This collaboration traditionally drove both the chip and the stepper industries to new heights of performance. American companies had 90% of the world market in 1980, but have less than 10% today.

The decay of the related printed circuit board (PCB) industry tells a similar tale. An extended 2008 excerpt from Manufacturing & Technology News is worth reading on this score:

The state of this industry has gone further downhill from what seems to be eons ago in 2005. The bare printed circuit industry is extremely sick in North America. Many equipment manufacturers have disappeared or are a shallow shell of their former selves. Many have opted to follow their customers to Asia, building machines there. Many raw material vendors have also gone.

What is basically left in the United States are very fragile manufacturers, weak in capital, struggling to supply [Original Equipment Manufacturers] at prices that do not contribute to profit. The majority of the remaining manufacturers should be called 'shops.' They are owner operated and employ themselves. They are small. They barely survive. They cannot invest. Most offer only small lot, quick-turn delivery. There is very little R&D, if any at all. They can't afford equipment. They are stale. The larger companies simply get into deeper debt loads. The profits aren't there to reinvest. Talent is no longer attracted to a dying industry and the remaining manufacturers have cut all incentives.

PCB manufacturers need raw materials with which to produce their wares. There is hardly a copper clad lamination industry. Drill bits are coming from offshore. Imaging materials, specialty chemicals, metal finishing chemistry, film and capital equipment have disappeared from the United States. Saving a PCB shop isn't saving anything if its raw materials must come from offshore. As the mass exodus of PCB manufacturers heads east, so is their supply chain.

All over America, other industries are quietly falling apart in similar ways.

Losing positions in key technologies means that whatever brilliant innovations Americans may dream up in small start-up companies in the future, large-scale commercialization of those innovations will increasingly take place abroad. A similar fate befell Great Britain, which invented such staples of the postwar era as radar, the jet passenger plane, and the CAT scanner, only to see huge industries based on each end up in the U.S. For example, the U.S. invented photovoltaic cells, and was number one in their production as recently as 1998, but has now dropped to fifth behind Japan, China, Germany, and Taiwan. Of the world's 10 largest wind turbine makers, only one (General Electric) is American. Over time, the industries of the future inexorably become the industries of the present, so this is a formula for automatic economic decline. Case in point: nanotechnology is probably the first major new industry in a century in which the U.S. is not the undisputed world leader.

America's increasingly patchy technological base also renders it vulnerable to foreign suppliers of "key" or "chokepoint" technologies. These, though obscure and of small dollar value in themselves, are technologies without which major other technologies cannot function. For example, China recently restricted export of the rare-earth minerals required to make advanced magnets for everything from headphones to electric cars. Another form this problem takes is the refusal of oligopoly suppliers to sell their best technology to American companies as quickly as they make it available to their own corporate partners. It doesn't take much imagination to see how foreign industrial policy could turn this into a potent competitive weapon against American industry. For another example, Japan now supplies over 70 percent of the world's nickel-metal hydride batteries and 60-70 percent of the world's lithium-ion batteries. This will give Japan a key advantage in electric cars.

The Obama administration shows no awareness of any of this, despite scratching a hole in its head over why job creation has stalled. (Hint: it hasn't stalled in the nations, from China to Germany, running trade surpluses with us in manufactured goods.) It is not yet too late to reverse these dynamics, but we are definitely running out of time. So the sooner we start questioning the sacred myth of free trade, which is largely responsible for this mess, the better.
