Local, private disaster relief more effective than FEMA

EDITORIAL: Local, private disaster relief more effective than FEMA:

In the days and weeks after Hurricane Katrina blew a path of destruction through New Orleans in 2005, Americans took notice of the bungling of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its dysfunctional performance. Many began to question why the agency exists.

A new report by the Cato Institute ...

Anchor baby madness.

Anchor baby madness.:

Today, more than 20 percent of all children born in the United States are born to those who have entered the United States unlawfully, and who are, by any authentic definition of the 14th Amendment, NOT subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. because they are not citizens. Yet Barack Hussein Obama and his Socialist Bourgeoisie assert that the "anchor babies" of illegal immigrants are owed all the entitlements of an American citizen.

The near-term consequences of this fallacious assertion have dire implications for the future of Liberty, for the Rule of Law, and for the very survival of our nation. But this is consistent with Obama's "fundamental transformation" agenda to break the back of free enterprise, which is essential to liberty.

In 1776, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson proposed the national motto, "E pluribus unum" ("Out of many, one"), but that unity will not last much longer if we do not take dramatic action to restore the Rule of Law.[1]
Only in the debased United States of America today, will courts contort themselves to dream up doctrines that enable

  1. foreigners to claim a "right" to acquire citizenship by virtue of having been delivered 12 inches over the international boundaries of the U.S. and
  2. their foreign parents to claim a right of family reunification with such bogus "citizens."
How to illustrate the absurdity of this? If I visit a house for sale during an "open house" do I have a right to come back later and demand a bedroom from the new owner for my home? Our black letter property laws permit the courts to deal effectively with such an absurd claim. Something more than mere presence enters into the calculations of sane people.

According to U.S. federal courts, however, foreigners can make just such a claim under our immigration "laws." Location of delivery equals U.S. passport and right to reside and vote. Wishes and intentions of foreigners trump interests of U.S. citizens.

Scumbag Louis Farrakhan Threatens To Tear The Country Apart Over Ferguson

Scumbag Louis Farrakhan Threatens To Tear The Country Apart Over Ferguson: Louis Farrakhan has crawled out from under the rock he shares with the other Slugs to share his thoughts about Ferguson, Mo. Speaking at Morgan State University, a predominantly black college located in Baltimore, Maryland, Farrakhan called for more violence from the nations black community.



The Daily Caller reported Farrakhan said the violence in Ferguson was justified because of the the grand jury decision to not indict Officer Wilson. The hate-monger Farrakhan asserted that peace is only in the interest of ‘white folks,'adding, “We going to die anyway. Let’s die for something!”





He said, “As long as they [whites] kill us [blacks] and go to Wendy’s and have a burger and go to sleep, they’ll keep killing us. But when we die and they die, then soon we’re going to sit at a table and talk about it! We’re tired! We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!”
As he continued with his violent, racist rant, Farrakhan was critical of Obama and Holder stating that violence is not the answer. In response he called for parents to teach their children how to throw molotov cocktails and demonstrated himself how to do so.

Louis Farrakhan calls for violence...and the DOJ yawns

Louis Farrakhan calls for violence...and the DOJ yawns:

Posted By Scott Greer On 8:39 PM 11/29/2014 I
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan went on a fiery tirade about Ferguson on Saturday — threatening that if the demands of protesters aren’t met, “we’ll tear this goddamn country apart!”
Farrakhan stated in his speech — given at Morgan State University, a black college located in Baltimore, Md. — that violence was justified in response to the decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson and peaceful protests are only in the interest of “white folks.”
“We going to die anyway. Let’s die for something,” the radical figure told the crowd to roaring applause.
He even said the parents of teenagers should teach their kids how to throw Molotov cocktails. “Teach your baby how to throw the bottle if they can. Fight,” the minister advised, and then imitated throwing the explosive device.
Farrakhan argued that violence was justified by the “law of retaliation” HE claims is in both the Bible and the Koran.
“In this book, there’s a law for retaliation,” he said, while holding up what appeared to be the NOI version of the Koran, and repeated, “A law for retaliation.”
Farrakhan believes white people will only start listening to black concerns through violence against whites.
“As long as they [whites] kill us [blacks] and go to Wendy’s and have a burger and go to sleep, they’ll keep killing us,” the self-proclaimed minister said. “But when we die and they die, then soon we’re going to sit at a table and talk about it! We’re tired! We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!”
WATCH:
Farrakhan also criticized President Barack Obama, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and other black leaders for engaging in what he sees as “compromise” and being out of touch with young African-Americans. He believes they are doing the bidding of “white people” by trying to tell protesters in Ferguson to remain calm.
“Tonight in Ferguson everybody is on edge. White folks have never been on edge after they killed a Black man. Tonight they’re on edge; so on edge that our president has come out from behind the curtain to ask young Black people: ‘Cool it. That’s not our way.’” Farrakhan said. “I heard you, Mr. President; and I asked myself a question: What brings you out of the shadows?”
Farrakhan then attacked Eric Holder and black religious leaders for telling “black youth to be peaceful.”
“And you preachers: Your day of being the pacifier for the white man’s tyranny upon black people, you got to know they’re [young blacks] not going to hear you anymore!” Farrakhan declared to standing ovations.
He continued to go after Obama and how he has not gone to “wicked” police departments and demanded they stop killing minorities.
“Why the hell don’t you stand up and tell them that your killing of Black youth and Brown youth is not going to hold no more,” Farrakhan said.
WATCH:

Despite wanting violent confrontations in the area, Farrakhan wrongly referred to Ferguson as “Jefferson” in some of his remarks and only corrected his mistake when audience members shouted out the town’s actual name.




The old saw is that poverty causes crime. The truth is crime causes poverty as Ferguson will now prove again. Where are the jobs that once existed in the burned out stores?

The UCLA Divestment Farce

The UCLA Divestment Farce: Hat tip The Mike Report













As previously reported, a pro Divestment vote has recently been passed at UCLA aimed at firms doing business with Israel. The BDS vote failed last year, but they just keep coming back until they pass. Of course, these exercises, which take up so much time and energy of various university student governments, are symbolic in that they are followed by a statement from the university that no such divestment will take place. Such a statement was issued by UCLA Chancellor Gene Block.



Below, courtesy of my Seattle-based friends, The Mike Report, is a brief report on what happened at UCLA. It also contains the final remarks of Avinoam Baral, the Israeli president of the student council in the face of the pro-divestment bullies in the room.



http://mikereport.wordpress.com/2014/11/21/video-seattles-avinoam-baral-defends-israel-to-bds-mob-at-ucla/



G-d bless, Avinoam. He stands in marked contrast to the pro-divestment bullies and the radical faculty who drive this asinine BDS movement on our campuses.



Hopefully, some day this movement will exhaust itself. It is the practical equivalent of little girls playing house. What's sad is that it sucks up so much of the time, energy and resources of a campus that does nothing to further the education or the well-being of the students. The exact opposite is the result. I long for the day when our universities can get back to the business of being universities.

Chinese-American Mom Says Common Core is Just Like Education in Communist China

Chinese-American Mom Says Common Core is Just Like Education in Communist China:

Click here to view the embedded video.

Lily Tang Williams, a mother of three, testified before the Colorado State Board of Education that Common Core was similar to the education she received growing up in Mao’s Communist China.

“Common Core, in my eyes, is the same as the Communist core I once saw in China,” Williams said. “I grew up under Mao’s regime and we had the Communist-dominated education — nationalized testing, nationalized curriculum, and nationalized indoctrination.”

In a post at FreedomWorks Williams wrote about her experience with the Chinese education system:

Our teachers had to comply with all the curriculum and testing requirements, or lose their jobs forever. Parents had no choice at all when it came to what we learned in school. The government used the Household Registration and Personnel File system to keep track of its citizens from birth to death.
“I came to this country for freedom and I cannot believe this is happening all over again in this country,” she said in the meeting. “I don’t know what happened to  America, the Shining City on the Hill for freedom.

She said Americans should not compare their children (or their kids’ test scores) to those being educated under the Chinese system.

“I am telling you, Chinese children are not trained to be independent thinkers,” said Williams. “They are trained to be massive skilled workers for corporations. And they have no idea what happened in Tiananmen square in 1989 where government ordered soldiers to shoot its own 1,000 students.”

Enough with The Ferguson Pandering

Enough with The Ferguson Pandering:

Enough with The Ferguson Pandering

By Lloyd MarcusIn all the media coverage of the riots in Ferguson, an annoying false premise has been allowed to stand as though it were an

unquestionable truth. Talking heads on the left and right are saying while rioting is not the way, there is a need for change in America. What the heck change are they talking about?

By embracing the “need for change” premise promoted by Al Sharpton and company, the media is complicit in spreading the lie that America is racist and blacks are mistreated. For crying out loud, folks, look around. Blacks are thriving in every area of the American experience. The real need for change is for blacks to stop voting for Democrats in exchange for just-enough-to-get-by handouts and endless failed big government spending programs that make problems worse; the death of the black family. That is what desperately needs to change in America.

I take offense at these snooty, arrogant TV talking heads declaring my country and my fellow Americans guilty of something they are not. The talking heads are simply pandering to ignorance and beating up on my country and I do not like it. These elites are also poking a finger in the eye of the majority of Americans of all races who play by the rules to achieve their American dreams -- working, playing, and crying together when necessary.

We have also heard from the media and Obama that police must deal with blacks differently. Obama said a better job must be done in training law enforcement “to be sensitive to the concerns of minority communities”. Hogwash! Why isn't standard police training sufficient for dealing with all criminals? Should extra tolerance be allowed by police when dealing with minorities? Absolutely not. The call for police special training is nothing more than liberal pandering.

I also fought to control my gag reflex every time I heard a media elite praise the Ferguson police for their great restraint during the looting and destruction of property and lives after the grand jury decision and earlier riots back in August. Such comments feed the notion that blacks have a right to be angry and behave badly because America is racist.

So as Americans watched footage of police cars burning, thugs gleefully running with stolen goodies and mayhem in the streets of Ferguson, we were told that while violence is not the way, we must understand their rage. Every opportunist thug wreaking havoc in Ferguson should be arrested. Period!

Despite all the media accusations of an overmilitarized Ferguson police department and despite Ferguson police walking on eggshells in an attempt not to further anger protesters and appease the MSM, black and white businesses were destroyed; apparently deemed acceptable collateral damage.

Even some conservatives contributed to the destructive pandering by subscribing to the narrative that special concessions must be made for blacks because they are still suffering the negative effects of slavery. This is absurd.

American blacks are suffering the negative effects of decades of Liberalism; liberals controlling our schools, controlling Hollywood and controlling the news media. Liberals have infected the hearts and minds of blacks, conditioning them to believe blacks are suppressed in America because of racism, while ignoring all facts, in plain sight, which prove otherwise.

If white America's agenda is to suppress blacks, what backroom deal was struck to allow Oprah, Obama, Beyonce, Dr Ben Carson, and others to break through the Great White American Glass Ceiling? Is there an annual restriction on the number of blacks permitted to achieve success in America?
Interviewed on TV, a young black male said the grand jury decision proves that America is systematically racist. I thought, there you have it. Al Sharpton and company have won. From the first reports of the shooting, Sharpton and the Democrats' purpose was to exploit Brown's death to further their narrative that America is racist and cops murder blacks with impunity.

Insidiously, Sharpton and company successfully turned Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown's deaths into evidence of America's injustice in the minds of many; solely for the purpose of creating fear and hate against white America. Their messaging is vote for Democrats and we will keep the handouts coming, redistribute whitey's wealth, and keep whitey off your back.

America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it. And yet, Sharpton and company are relentless in their efforts to hide this truth from black Americans, the very people they claim to champion. Why? The answer is the Left's agenda is to transform America into a socialist nation. They need government-dependent blacks voting for Democrats to make it happen. This is why Democrats, liberals, and the MSM are celebrating Obama, in essence, granting amnesty to over 5 million illegals, despite them taking jobs from blacks; further exacerbating black unemployment. By embracing Obama's lawless amnesty decree, the Democrats are throwing black Americans under the bus.

Watching the Ferguson riots on TV was deja vu all over again. For decades, Democrats have been feeding blacks the same old excrement and we are witnessing the same results; angry frustrated blacks -- a majority of black kids in fatherless households, high school dropouts, high unemployment, high black on black crime, high incarcerations, high abortion rates, and so on.

Bottom line, far too many blacks are mentally stuck, infected with victim mindsets which prevent them from pursuing their American dreams.

Shepard Smith on Fox News said the protests in Ferguson bring up the larger issue that large numbers of people (blacks) across America do not feel that the system is working for them. The unfortunate mindset of such blacks is the result of brainwashing by liberals and Democrats; pure and simple. As I stated, all of black America's real issues stem from decades of them willfully living on the Democrat's liberal plantation.

The American system works great! Only in America could a barefoot cotton-picking little black kid in the 1940s dare to have a dream; grow up to become one of the most powerful black men in the world, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Without Affirmative Action, Justice Thomas achieved success the old-fashioned way. He earned it via education, hard work, and the right choices.

America is great because America is good. May God continue to bless America.

How radical were the people who influenced Obama

How radical were the people who influenced Obama:

(WESTERN JOURNALISM CENTER)

By Steve Baldwin

It took years for many Americans to figure out that Obama’s policies not only do not work but are based upon a hard-left ideology not compatible with human freedom and economic prosperity. Indeed, the economy has not declined due to some random political decisions. It is the result of a series of decisions intended to move America away from its free-market roots and toward a socialist “utopia.” And of course, all of these decisions derive from the ideology of the man occupying the White House.

Needless to say, the socialist left believed the Obama era was the best opportunity ever to transform America to a socialist-based economy and eradicate our commitment to the Constitution designed to limit federal power.

But this should not have been a surprise. Virtually ALL of Obama’s main influences in life were communists and socialists who believed in transforming America into a socialist “paradise.”

Obama’s links to hardcore anti-American people and groups is so pervasive that had he applied to work at the White House prior to becoming president, he would NOT have received a security clearance. The media knew much of this info but made a concerted effort to avoid stories about Obama’s background. During the 2008 presidential campaign, this author even sent evidence of Obama’s 1996 “New Party” (a socialist party) membership to a half dozen prominent reporters and received no response.

CAIR Deserves Terrorist Designation

CAIR Deserves Terrorist Designation:

If you have followed my posting about Oklahoma State Representative John Bennett, you will know he minces no words when it comes to radical Islam and its friends in America. He has been called many names, Islamaphobe among them, for his unrelenting pursuit of exposing the truth about Islam. One of the organizations that has tried to prove Bennett’s allegations false, to make him out a liar and a bigot, is the Council on American-Islamic Relations, otherwise known as CAIR. They have a lively chapter in Oklahoma and they have done their best to discredit their number one nemesis in Oklahoma, namely John Bennett. To his credit, Bennett has the facts on his side, and he has used those facts in his latest post on Facebook, showing just how big of a hypocrite CAIR really is. The truth about radical Islam, and the friends it has in CAIR, can not be denied, no matter how much some people may try.

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. John Bennett, chair of the Oklahoma Counterterrorism Caucus, said today that he would like to

CAIR-OK
explain why the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is on the United Arab Emirates list of terrorist organizations.

Since its founding in 1994, CAIR employees and officials have conspired with third parties that are hostile to the interests of the United States and pled guilty to charges related to these actions.

Senior CAIR employee Randall Todd “Ismail” Royer pled guilty and was sentenced to 20 years in prison for participating in a network of militant jihadists centered in Northern Virginia. He admitted to aiding and abetting three persons who sought training in a terrorist camp in Pakistan for the purpose of waging jihad against American troops in Afghanistan. Royer’s illegal actions occurred while he was employed with CAIR.

CAIR Director of Community Relations Bassem Khafagi was arrested by the United States due to his ties with a terror-financing front group. Khafagi pled guilty to charges of visa and bank fraud, and agreed to be deported to Egypt. Khafagi’s illegal actions occurred while he was employed by CAIR.

On Dec. 18, 2002, Ghassan Elashi, founding board member of CAIR-Texas, a founder of the Holy Land Foundation, and a brother-in-law of Musa Abu Marzook , was arrested by the United States and charged with, among other things, making false statements on export declarations, dealing in the property of a designated terrorist organization, conspiracy and money laundering. Ghassan Elashi committed his crimes while working at CAIR, and was found guilty.

CAIR Board Member Imam Siraj Wahajq, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the first World Trade Center bombing, has called for replacing the American government with an Islamic caliphate, and warned that America will crumble unless it accepts Islam.

Rabih Haddad served as a CAIR fundraiser. Haddad was co-founder of the Global Relief Foundation. The Global Relief Fund was designated by the U.S. Treasury Department for financing the Al Qaida and other terrorist organizations and its assets were frozen by the federal government on Dec. 14, 2001.

Consistent with Hamas ideology, CAIR has served as a conduit for the distribution of materials and funds from foreign nationals to groups and institutions within the United States such as the Islamic Association for Palestine. The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development and the Global Relief Foundation. The materials and funds are for the purpose of promoting radical Islam and Hamas ideology. They have criticized Islamic clerics and scholars who reject radical Islam and the Hamas agenda.

“Let there be no doubt that the Council on American-Islamic Relations is a terrorist supporting front organization that is partially funded by terrorists, and that CAIR wishes nothing more than the implementation of Sharia Law in America,” said Bennett, R-Sallisaw. “CAIR has proven links to and was founded by Islamic terrorists. CAIR is not in the United States to promote the civil rights of Muslims. CAIR is here to make radical Islam the dominant religion in the United States and convert our country into an Islamic theocracy.”

In 2007, the largest terrorist funding case was prosecuted in Texas, the federal government versus the enormous Islamic charity — the Holy Land Foundation. The defendants were found guilty, and in so doing exposed a network of terror-tied Islamic groups in the United States. Many well-known Muslim groups were named un-indicted co-conspirators and Muslim Brotherhood fronts, including CAIR.

It was understood that these groups would be indicted and prosecuted as well, but that changed with the election of President Barack Obama and the appointment of Attorney General Eric Holder. Not only were those prosecutions scuttled, but the Obama Administration embedded many of these Muslim Brotherhood operatives in positions of significant power in his administration.

Bennett said Mohammed Alibiary, who is an open supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia Law and a close friend and supporter of Shukri Abu Baker, who was convicted of using a charity to fund HAMAS in which Mohammed Alibiary was a contributor, was appointed in 2010 and re-appointed in 2013 by President Obama to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council with access to classified U.S. data.

“The action by the United Arab Emirates is explicit recognition of the threat posed by the Muslim Brotherhood and its front organizations,” Bennett said.

How Obama blatantly disregards the law

How Obama blatantly disregards the law | New York Post: "Learning to run around American law was his main purpose in attending Harvard Law School, where he quickly sidled up to Professor Derrick Bell, who bashed the Constitution as a form of “original sin.”
There was no reverence in studying the founding documents and the system they created, no desire to work within America’s legal framework and enforce existing law.
No, Obama didn’t study federal statutes to defend them. He studied them to game them, sabotage them. To abdicate them.

Are All Children Created Equal?

Are All Children Created Equal?:

Put aside for the moment the question of how deeply the government should be involved in child development. One suspects that parents are best qualified for the job. True enough, some parents are grossly inadequate, but still that does not justify a government takeover of childrearing.

If government-sponsored studies about Head Start are any indication, even the most highly touted programs do not make very much of a real difference anyway.

Today, Professor Jay Belsky reports on a new study about what he calls children’s resilience. He explains that a child’s genetic makeup will make him or her more or less able to benefit from developmental programs. The commonly-held assumption that all children are equally capable of learning, is false.

In Belsky’s words:

BEHIND a half-century of policies to promote child development, there lies an assumption: that children are essentially equally affected by the environments they grow up in, and that positive interventions like preschool education should therefore help all children. But what if this isn’t true?

How do children differ? Belsky answers:

Evidence suggests that some children are — in one frequently used metaphor — like delicate orchids; they quickly wither if exposed to stress and deprivation, but blossom if given a lot of care and support. Others are more like dandelions; they prove resilient to the negative effects of adversity, but at the same time do not particularly benefit from positive experiences. In this sense, resilience, long thought to be an exclusively beneficial characteristic, is actually a double-edged sword.

Some programs help some children but all programs do not help all children. Apparently, some children thrive when coddled but wither when faced with strict discipline. Others benefit from adversity but not from coddling.

One would like to know more about the distribution of these two. Are more children likely to respond well to discipline or are more children likely to respond well to coddling?

Belsky proposes something like what used to be called tracking. Children most susceptible to profit from certain forms of instruction would receive them. Those children who are least likely to benefit would not.

In his words:

One might even imagine a day when we could genotype all the children in an elementary school to ensure that those who could most benefit from help got the best teachers. Not only because they would improve the most, but also because they would suffer the most from lower quality instruction. The less susceptible — and more resilient — children are more likely to do O.K. no matter what. After six or seven years, this approach could substantially enhance student achievement and well-being.

For now, after half a century of childhood interventions that have generated exaggerated claims of both efficacy and ineffectiveness, we need to acknowledge the reality that some children are more affected by their developmental experiences — from harsh punishment to high-quality day care — than others. This carries implications for scientists evaluating interventions, policy makers funding them and parents rearing children.

I am not certain why we need to use advanced genetic testing. Can’t we try out different programs on different children and observe which ones work and which ones don’t?

Of course, once we start down the road of genetic testing, we open up another set of problems. What if we were to discover that different racial and ethnic groups were more or less resilient in one or the other sense of the term?

What then?

As for the value of “high quality day care” it is good that Belsky closes his column with a reference to the parents who are ultimately responsible for rearing children and who might know, without any genetic testing, what is best for their children.

After all, the notion that all children are equal does not come from parents. It comes from philosophers and psychologists. It is based on an idea, not on experience.




Countering the Big Lie - Naomi Ragen

Countering the Big Lie - Naomi Ragen נעמי רגן - Novelist and Journalist: "There was a time during one of the so-called intifadas (forgive me for not remembering if it was the first, second, or in-between; all that savagery and murder runs together seamlessly in my head these days) that the Palestinians claimed that the Jews had no connection at all to Jerusalem, or the land of Israel. A statement like that, similar to denying the Holocaust, is so insane it leaves one sputtering in wordless confusion. It’s like being asked to prove you aren’t dead.

Were we not living in a world unspeakably degraded by dumbed-down college programs, propaganda pamphlets parading as newspapers, and the general degradation of moral and intellectual levels in every strata of society all over the world, such lies could be ignored. Given the reality, we ignore it at our peril.

America Must Prioritize Arming the Kurds…even if it Antagonizes Iran and Turkey

America Must Prioritize Arming the Kurds…even if it Antagonizes Iran and Turkey:

By Dr. Robert Sklaroff and Dr. Sherkoh Abbas

Shakespeare’s “King Lear” paid dearly after he mistakenly willed his estate to two daughters due to their voiced sycophancy, forsaking his youngest daughter who truly adored him. Similarly, Obama’s America is cow-towing to the whims of Iran and Turkey, rather than directly helping the Peshmerga in Kurdistan. The desired boots-on-ground are directly underfoot, yet he refuses to acknowledge the urgent need to assist the Kurds; instead, he keeps “tripping” over their presence.

Obama’s apologists alternately aver the situation is hyper-complex and freedom-seekers are ultimately doomed. To the contrary, the key-players reveal their motives through their actions (even if utterances are occasionally cryptic) and the pathway to a quality outcome is readily apparent (even if Obama would have to ‘fess-up regarding the existential threat of the global Islamist ideology). Because the goals of contiguous countries are averse to those beneficial to America, Kurds must urgently be empowered to champion Western Civilization’s value-system, to perpetuate the Judeo-Christian Ethic that has underpinned American Exceptionalism for centuries.


Iran wants to preserve the Assad government, and has avidly shored-up these state-terrorists with the loyal assistance of the Russians who covet the Tartus port; Tehran wants to forge a Shi’ite pathway to the Mediterranean, and has enlisted support in this endeavor from a Baghdad government that has been set adrift by America’s unilateral retreat. Failure to leave a robust residual force was arguably the most dramatic and damaging unforced error in the post-World War II era, for doubters need only be reminded of the continued existence of South Korea, more than a half-century following the cessation of major hostilities, the “Forgotten War.”

American policy is predicated on a double-blunder—“two sides of the same coin”—one component of which is widely-debated and the other component of which has remained shrouded. The former challenge is Obama’s decision to forbid providing major armaments to the Kurds, instead channeling everything except relief supplies and small arms through Baghdad; it may be necessary to involve NATO formally in this endeavor, if only to break this logjam. The latter challenge is Obama’s decision to back the Free Syrian Army {“FSA”}, which is led by a former Brigadier General in Assad’s army who harbors loyalties that undermine his ability to serve as America’s proxy; empowering the Kurds would permit them to vet regional militias to ensure American matériel is not diverted to Islamists.

Rectifying both errors would proclaim commitment to long-delayed independence of a Kurdistan comprising a federation of lands currently within the borders of Iraq and Syria…but not Turkey or Iran (where millions also reside). Neither country should object to the elimination of domestic insurrection aimed at their territories…unless, of course, their covert aim is the annihilation of the Kurdish upstarts.

{We previously detailed the underlying loyalties of the alphabet-soup of Kurdish entities:  “America Must Recognize Kurdistan” [Jewish Policy Center]; “NATO Must Help the Kurds Now” [National Review]; and NATO must arm the Kurds, but only the pro-American Kurds [The Hill]. Kurds yearn for independence; alternatively, they fight for federation with stable, neighboring, non-threatening governments (invoking the paradigm of how Baghdad and Erbil developed a successful modus vivendi during the past decade).}

The FSA is led by Abdul-Ilah al-Bashir al-Noeimi, who disseminated views that are indubitably anti-Kurd and anti-Israel in the following posting. Translated from Arabic, it states:  “PYD/YPG are terrorists; we work only with honorable Kurds.  In our eyes, we have three types of Kurds:  1)—Israel and Zionist Kurds; 2)—PKK/YPG terrorists, and 3)—Kurds who are first Muslim and Second Syrian who deserve no rights, period.” Obviously, he cannot be trusted.

As Erdo?an pursues his neo-Ottoman dream of a restored caliphate, he ignores pleas of Abdullah Öcalan—the founder and leader of the PKK, who languishes in a Turkish jail despite a highly-touted rapprochement—that Turkey intervene in Kobanê. Meanwhile, Iran is busily co-opting nations, collecting client-states:  Iraq (filling the vacuum left by America’s departure), Syria (led by Bashir Assad, a fellow-Shi’ite), Lebanon (dominated by Iran’s offspring, Hezbollah, and greatly influenced by Syria), Gaza (which has become increasingly dependent upon Iranian armaments), Yemen (where its forces in Sana’a are emerging victorious), and Libya (which has just concluded a national-reconciliation pact endorsed by Algeria and supported, in-turn, by Iran).

Kurds, Yazidis, Christians and other ethnic minorities face extermination…in Kobanê, on Mount Sinjar, throughout Syria and Iraq. That American air-drops were acquired by the Islamic State is symptomatic of fragmentation that would be minimized if all were coordinated by the Kurdish National Council of Syria, which is aligned with the Kurdistan National Assembly of Syria.

King Lear tragically erred, before descending into madness; Obama has no such excuse blocking him from aiding primarily the Peshmerga in multiple arenas (humanitarian, diplomacy, publicity/media, training, and military). Hanging in the balance is survival of a culture spanning three millennia…plus America’s credibility and interests.

Black Residents Armed With Assault Rifles Stand Guard Outside White-Owned Business During Ferguson Riots

A group of black Ferguson residents armed with high-powered rifles stood outside a white-owned business in the city during recent riots, protecting it from rioters that looted and burned other businesses.

After a grand jury returned no indictment against Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown, protesters took to the streets and the demonstrations quickly turned into rioting. Several buildings were set ablaze, but a group of heavily armed black men stood outside a Conoco gas station.



One of the residents, a 6-foot-8 man named Derrick Johnson, held an AR-15 assault rifle as he stood in a pickup truck near that store’s entrance. Three other black Ferguson residents joined Johnson in front of the store, each of them armed with pistols.

Univision Anchor Jorge Ramos Speaks Out for Advocacy Journalism: 'Neutrality Helps the Oppressor':

Ramos pointed to a quote by the great Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel to bring his point home: “We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.”

Pope Francis Gets it Wrong

Pope Francis Gets it Wrong:





As Pope Francis I continues his visit to Turkey, there are questions as to just how strongly he is voicing his concerns about Muslim persecution of Christians. Prior to leaving he made a statement on the subjecct. Yet it seems that his words are limited to what ISIS is doing in Iraq and Syria. Now he is using that discredited line that poverty is behind Islamic extremism and is calling for more interfaith dialogue-an exercise that has proven to be more counter productive in that it usually leads to non-Muslims being lied to.

And now as Francis is in Turkey reflecting, there is a report that the Syrian border town of Kobani is now being besieged from the Turkish side of the border as well.

I am still waiting to hear if the Pontiff will address the rising anti-Semitism in Turkey especially coming from Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his ministers. As it is, my own gut feeling is that he could have made a more powerful statement by cancelling this trip.


A Fantasy-driven Muslim World can Never Become Modern

Articles: A Fantasy-driven Muslim World can Never Become Modern: "Every single radical Muslim group today lives in cultlike fantasy. They all distort reality, and teach it to their converts and their children. The constant warfare of the Muslim world goes back to that one single fact -- the imams spread hateful fantasies about the Jews, the Christians, and the return of the Righteous Caliphs, and after particularly hot Friday sermons, the mobs go out to burn and kill. This has been going on for a thousand years or more. It is why in Europe, parts of the major cities are now no-go zones for the police and the kuffirs.

BREAKING: COPS: NYT Reporter Who Published #DarrenWilson Address Calling Cops Nonstop

Forgive me for wishing harm on another, but this is just too lovely.



BREAKING: COPS: NYT Reporter Who Published #DarrenWilson Address Calling Cops Nonstop:

The New York Times journalist who published Darren Wilson’s home address wants police protection and has been calling the police nonstop, Gotnews.com has learned.

Julie Bosman “keeps calling the 020th District station complaining about people harassing and threatening her,” our source told us. She’s also “complaining about numerous food deliveries being sent to her residence.”



Chicago police department sources alerted Gotnews.com about the glaring double standard on Friday.

Gotnews.com published Julie Bosman’s address in Chicago after she published the address of Officer Darren Wilson and his new wife in a widely criticized move.

Ferguson Is News Because It Fits The Liberal Agenda

Ferguson Is News Because It Fits The Liberal Agenda: Last year, Philadelphia abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell stood trial in Philadelphia for the deaths of one woman and seven babies who had their throats slit, but national reporters didn't want to cover it. It's a "local crime story," they said. Ferguson, Mo., is merely the latest proof that a "local crime story" can be elevated to national news -- when it's the liberal media's favorite kind of "agenda-driven stuff."

St. Michael the Gentle Giant, patron saint for the Racially Aggrieved - D.W. Wilber - Page 2: "Portraying Michael Brown as anything more than the thug he was, and trying to equate his life and death as some significant part of the ‘black struggle’ for equality, is an insult and a disservice to the countless REAL African American heroes of the past who fought and died in the name of civil rights. Michael Brown has no business sharing a pedestal with someone of Dr. Martin Luther King’s stature. Michael Brown doesn’t even deserve to stand in Dr. King’s shadow.

Those who demonstrate and riot in Ferguson and all across America in the name of Michael Brown bring discredit to the legitimate concerns of African Americans. A group who have suffered more in the past six years during the administration of the first black president than they did in the preceding decades.

While we understand and take note of the grief of his parents and relatives let’s not change the story of his life from the reality it was, into some fairy tale it was not. No “gentle giant” twice the size of another shoves that person around and threatens and intimidates them while stealing their property.

That just makes him a thug and a thief, and certainly not a saint.

The Democrats final weapon has become Black mobs made crazy by media lies

The Democrats final weapon has become Black mobs made crazy by media lies: Two realities are sinking into the psyche of the Democrat Party: They have no valuable ideas and the few ideas they were able to turn into law don’t work. Reasonable people would be embarrassed. They would stand up and walk away from the “table,” after reaching these conclusions; but the Democrats are not reasonable people. It is impossible to embarrass them. They have always been about getting and holding power and nothing else.

Like so many of the administration’s reforms, this one is imposed by executive fiat rather than approved by Congress—and the incoming Republican Congress should try to roll it back.

Ferguson shows the destructive consequences of Marxist ideological theory and its application in practice. […]


John Cleese: Political Correctness is "Condescending"

John Cleese: Political Correctness is "Condescending": Plus bonus highly theoretical question: what happens when you make jokes about Muslims?



(Because he is not actually making any jokes about them, merely mentioning the subject.)



Cleese's answer: they kill you. 



Stinky, stupid, totalitarian theories don't work in practice. Ever.





"John Cleese has argued that political correctness is 'condescending' as it only allows jokes to be made about certain groups while implying others need to be protected."

(Actually it's less about protection, that's merely the ruse, another Big Lie, and more about censorship, policing and criminalizing legitimate human thoughts and emotions.)

"Speaking to Bill Maher on HBO, the legendary comedian said he used to make race jokes about nationalities such as the French and Australians - but if he mentioned Mexicans it was deemed unacceptable."

'It's so awful isn't it? he said. 'It starts out as a halfway decent idea, and then it goes completely wrong.” 

I think he's totally wrong about political correctness starting out being a " halfway decent idea". 

It's not. It sucks from the get go. It's like the people who say that communism is a really nice idea but it doesn't work in practice, or "THIS TIME" we'll make it work.  

Totalitarian ideas are never any good at all. 

Nothing about them works in practice-not ever. So screw them.

"The British comedian then goes on to say suggest that the reason you can't make jokes about Muslims is because 'they'll kill you'."

"Who are the people you can't make jokes about?' he asks Maher who instantly responds: 'Muslims'"

"Try that,' he adds. 'See what your Twitter feed says."

"A laughing Cleese responds: 'That's not saying that you can't, it just means that they'll kill you."

"Theoretically you could."

"The comedian added: 

"The problem is if you make jokes about people who are going to kill you, there is a sort of tendency to hold back a little isn't there?"

Ya think? 






Obama and the Roots of the Ferguson Rage

Obama and the Roots of the Ferguson Rage | FrontPage Magazine: "Even worse, both men have unduly elevated the status of race huckster Al Sharpton, showing up at National Action Network (NAN) galas to sing his praises. That odious reality is tantamount to a Republican president showing up at a meeting of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization and singing the praises of its white supremacist founder, David Duke. The fact that such as comparison is never made obscures the depths of the racial polarization embraced by the nations’s top two law enforcement officials. It is both an ongoing tragedy and a national disgrace that will only be assuaged when Sharpton and every other person who profits from the misery of millions is ejected from the national stage.

Until then, America will seethe. Well-meaning Americans on both sides of the color line will tread warily, remaining ultimately distrustful of each other, lest they be branded sellouts to “the cause.” The mob and its media enablers will continue to foment violence, looting, death and destruction, based largely on the notion that such mayhem is a “reasonable” price to be extracted from an irredeemably racist nation in need of “fundamental transformation.” One family will mourn for a son who could not resist the siren song of thug culture, while another family will continue to live in terror perhaps forever, or at least until the mob finds another bogeyman at whom it can channel its orchestrated blood-lust. The thin blue line that separates America from the anarchists will be stretched to its limits.

And the promise of a post-racial society that once propelled this president into the White House now more closely resembles the division and racialist bean-counting that epitomizes the community organizer mindset. In short, hope and change is going up in flames in Ferguson, MO.

THE FIRST THANKSGIVING CELEBRATED THE BOUNTY OF CAPITALISM

THE FIRST THANKSGIVING CELEBRATED THE BOUNTY OF CAPITALISM: On Thanksgiving Day, Americans gather with their family and
friends to celebrate the blessings that Providence has bestowed on their
beloved country.

A deep appreciation of these blessings involves understanding that they were earned.
It is to understand the awesome truth of how God helps those who help
themselves applies to the Mayflower Pilgrims and their First Thanksgiving
at America's birth.

This is an appreciation and understanding of which those on the Left are
incapable - for it would mean celebrating the capitalist freedom that made that
original Thanksgiving possible. This no liberal, no Democrat, no leftie
can do. Thus they must distort history instead.

The distortion starts in Kindergarten, with the childish make-believe of your
kid's school play portraying the noble Squanto teaching the helpless Pilgrims
how to feed themselves. So let's drop the curtain on the distortion and
watch the real thing. Here it is. This is what needs to be taught to every schoolchild in America, instead of the garbage they learn now.


Private property and the Pilgrims

Private property and the Pilgrims - The Washington Post: "Once the Pilgrims in the Plymouth Plantation abandoned their communal economic system and adopted one with greater individual property rights, they never again faced the starvation and food shortages of the first three years. It was only after allowing greater property rights that they could feast without worrying that famine was just around the corner.

Radio Commentator Dennis Prager Says Root Of Evil Is Found In “Lies And Deception” Of The Government

Radio Commentator Dennis Prager Says Root Of Evil Is Found In “Lies And Deception” Of The Government:



3142420417_1d9d22760a_b


Radio Commentator Dennis Prager recently spoke at an event in London hosted by Gov. Mike Huckabee and David Lane. During his talk, Prager highlighted several factors he believes are destroying democratic values once held dear in Western countries.

Prager claims the root of evil isn’t found in the acts committed by sadomasochists or serial killers, but in “lies and deception” told by government leaders or through cultural euphemisms. Once embedded in the mindset of individuals, groups, or national identities, lies perpetuate a mindset of entitlement and victimhood, which in turn justifies violence.

Having just arrived from Poland, having walked on the same ground as those who were exterminated, the parallels Prager identified between societies three generations apart are profound. Considering the failed leadership of those who orchestrated the Treaty of Versailles, reinforcing the German ethos personified by shame and victimization, it comes as no surprise that Germany groomed itself for WWII, willfully supporting a leader who lied to them and the rest of the world.

Sadly, British and American leaders have deliberately caused similarly disastrous consequences for their own people by refusing to identify and fight evil, instead welcoming boatloads of Trojan horses to their shores.

In the UK, EU migrants can claim UK taxpayer funded benefits, the majority of Muslim immigrants are on welfare, and immigration has increased by over 38 percent, with 25 percent of births in England and Wales from non-British citizens.

Net migration figures project 130,000 immigrants will enter the UK next year—equivalent to adding a city the size of Manchester to Britain’s population every four years.

In light of this, EU migrants bring to the UK little to nothing except for the mindset Prager describes. Recently, for example, tens of thousands of Romanians waited for hours in several block-long lines on British streets to vote in Romania’s presidential election. (Approximately 50,000 Bulgarians and Romanians currently work legally in the UK.) Instead of seeking to improve their country in their country, they come to the UK to receive benefits.

But why have laws at all when an American president can dictate, via executive fiat, amnesty for over 5 million illegal immigrants, knowing such illegality will cost American citizens two trillion dollars, minimum, in additional debt, not to mention numerous detrimental consequences? In the meantime, illegal immigrants receive free, immediate, comprehensive, and accessible benefits—incomparably better than any services American veterans receive.

Prager’s talk was fortuitous on a personal note. Departing from the Queen’s Terminal Two at Heathrow Airport, I encountered non-British airport staff who expressed vitriol and bigotry towards me (and, I later learned, others on my United Airlines flight) because I am a white American who named and confronted their bigotry.

Because of a non-British airport employee’s error, one of my carry on items was flagged as “suspicious” when passing through the final security check point. The next non-British airport employee tasked with going through my bag told me she had to go through each and every item “for my protection,” because she claimed I was carrying liquids, which I was not.

I asked, “Are you saying you think you are protecting me from myself? That I packed poison or explosives in my moisturizer or digital camera?” Half jokingly I asked, “Do you know any white female American terrorist returning to her country who has murdered other Americans?”

She stared at me with piercing eyes, arms crossed, and aggressively demanded, “what does a terrorist look like?”

“I can tell you what they don’t look like,” I said. “Me.” Next, I asked to speak to her manager, and she refused.

However, during this ridiculous conversation, of which I’m only providing highlights, another non-British airport employee came over to tell me: “You are not allowed to use the word ‘terrorist.’” She added, “people who use that word are flagged as a ‘suspicious and treated with caution.’”

Nearly laughing, I asked if she’d ever met a terrorist who first identified him/herself as a terrorist. And, “tell me what British law prohibits me from using the word ‘terrorist,’ ‘terrorism,’ ‘suicide bomber,’ or ‘Muslim Jihadist?’” Both women looked at each other, saying, “she said the word ‘terrorist’ again!”

In response, the Asian told the Eastern European that she would not look through my bag and then, with her right forearm, swiped my bag of breakable gifts (not flagged for “suspicion”) off of the counter onto the floor. I told her she had no authority to do that. She told me she could do whatever she wanted.

Finally, five people later, I was able to speak to a British citizen and supervisor and asked if there was a British law that censored speech at Heathrow Airport. He confirmed there was no such law. I asked him why two airport employees would dictate that there was, to which he did not have an answer.

After summarizing the entire situation to him, detailing examples of airport employees’ hostility, he said something quite remarkable: that his father fought in WWII and would not recognize 2014 Britain, and his mother told him, “with rights come responsibility.”

Despite the fact that airport employees must have work permits or be citizens, neither requirement actually translates to a worker understanding that demanding rights for themselves requires responsibility to value British culture, mindset, and rule of law that enables those rights. While Jihadi John might be a British citizen, there is nothing British about beheading Americans, at least not since the Revolutionary War.

By contrast, however, two women I know and their families who live in Brooklyn, N.Y., represent all that is good about legal immigration. They came to America legally from Uzbekistan, work six days a week as entrepreneurs who manage two successful small businesses, learned how to speak and write English, and saved money to buy their first home—something they never could have done in Uzbekistan. And there are many more like them.

They are proud American citizens who vote in American elections. They have no sense of entitlement or victimhood—even though they have every right to in light of the persecution they experienced and witnessed as Jews by Muslims in their homeland.

Yet, 100 years to the date of the beginning of the Great War, the war supposed to end all wars, Britain and America must confront equally serious threats to their existence. Illegals and EU migrants do not value the freedoms the countries to which they flock provide because they pick and choose which laws they should follow, disregarding who and what enable them to have such freedoms in the first place.

The question then remains: What will the living do to honor the dead who fought for the freedoms and rights many continue to carelessly squander?

My answer: My grandfathers and their brothers did not fight against tyranny for an Eastern European to tell their granddaughter she did not have the freedom to speak truth in a country Americans helped defend against the very imperious ideology asserted then and today. Nor is this why Americans, and many others, continue to spill their blood fighting against the numerous Jihadi Johns in the world.

It is time for leaders to step forward and boldly distinguish right from wrong and truth from falsehood. There is no shame in seeking to preserve that which is good in a culture and defending it from enemies within and without. My grandfathers’ memories demand it, as does my generation’s responsibility to safeguard freedoms for generations yet to come.

Liberals fight to the last drop of black blood

Liberals fight to the last drop of black blood:

The riot in Ferguson reminds me, I hate criminals, but I hate liberals more. They planned this riot. They stoked the fire, lied about the evidence and produced a made-to-order riot.

Every other riot I’ve ever heard of was touched off by some spontaneous event that exploded into mob violence long before any media trucks arrived. This time, the networks gave us a countdown to the riot, as if it were a Super Bowl kickoff.

From the beginning, Officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown wasn’t reported like news. It was reported like a cause.

The media are in a huff about the prosecutor being “biased” because his father was a cop, who was shot and killed by an African-American. What an a–h@le!

Evidently, the sum-total of what every idiot on TV knows about the law is Judge Sol Wachtler’s 20-year-old joke that a prosecutor could “indict a ham sandwich.” We’re supposed to be outraged that this prosecutor didn’t indict the ham sandwich of Darren Wilson.

Liberals seem not to understand that they don’t have a divine right to ruin someone’s life and bankrupt him with a criminal trial, just so they’re satisfied.

The reason most grand jury investigations result in an indictment is that most grand juries aren’t convened solely to patronize racial mobs. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon was basically demanding an indictment of Wilson before Big Mike’s body was cold. It was only because of racial politics that this shooting wasn’t dismissed without a grand jury, at all.

Obama says anger is an “understandable reaction” to the grand jury’s finding. Why? And why – as almost everyone is saying – are we supposed to praise the “peaceful protests”?

There’s nothing to protest! A cop shot a thug who was trying to kill him. The grand jury documents make perfectly clear that Big Mike was entirely responsible for his own death. Can’t the peaceful protesters read?

The night of the riot, Obama said the law “often feels as if it is being applied in discriminatory fashion.” Maybe, but not in this case – except toward Officer Wilson.

Ann Coulter’s books pack punch, reason and intellect … along with her sharp wit and humor, of course. See them at the WND Superstore

I know liberals were hoping they had finally found the great white whale of racism, but they’re just going to have to keep plugging away. They might want to come up with a more productive way to spend their time, inasmuch as they’re about 0:100 on white racism sightings.

Anyone following this case has seen the video of Big Mike robbing a store and roughing up an innocent Pakistani clerk about 10 minutes before being shot by Officer Wilson. They’ve seen him flashing Bloods gang signs in photos.

They know Brown’s mother was recently arrested for clubbing grandma with a pipe over T-shirt proceeds. They’ve seen the video of Brown’s ex-con stepfather shouting at a crowd of protesters after the grand jury’s decision: “Burn this b-tch down!”

Liberals will say none of that is relevant in court, but apparently they don’t think actual evidence is relevant, either. It’s certainly relevant in the court of public opinion that the alleged victims are a cartoonishly lower-class, periodically criminal black family.

TV hosts narrated the riot by saying it showed “the community” feels it’s not being listened to. Only liberals look at blacks looting and say, See what white Americans made them do?

That’s their proof of injustice – look at how blacks are reacting! (While I don’t approve of the looting part, I do approve of the whole throwing-bottles-at-CNN part.)

The looters aren’t the community!

The community doesn’t want black thugs robbing stores and sauntering down the middle of its streets. The community doesn’t want to be assaulted by Big Mike. The community didn’t want its stores burned down.

That community testified in support of Officer Darren Wilson. About a half-dozen black witnesses supported Officer Wilson’s version of what happened. One was a black woman, who saw the shooting from the Canfield Green apartments. Crying on the stand, she said, “I have a child and that could have been my son.”

And yet, she confirmed all crucial parts of Wilson’s account. She said “the child” (292-pound Big Mike) never had his hands up and the cop only fired when “the baby” was coming at him. “Why won’t that boy stop?” she asked her husband.

I always want to know more about the heroic black witnesses. They are put in a position no white person will ever be in and do the right thing by telling the truth – then go into hiding from “the community” being championed by goo-goo liberals.

White people don’t feel any obligation to defend some thug just because he’s white. Only blacks are expected to lie on behalf of criminals of their own race.

But real heroism doesn’t interest liberals. They only ooh-and-ahh over blacks with rap sheets. The only meaningful white racism anymore is the liberal infantilization of black people.
