CUBA MUST EMBRACE RIGHTS,REJECT TERROR


CUBA MUST EMBRACE RIGHTS, REJECT TERROR

by Marshall Frank on APRIL 3, 2016 in GENERAL, POLITICS & GOVERNMENT

Published Op-Ed in Florida Today, EDT April 3, 2016

Cuba must embrace rights, reject terror

Before making nice with Cuba, our government must take a tougher stance on some major issues. We already made a lopsided deal to one enemy nation who chants “Death to America,” let’s not make another blunder so close to our border.

Few Americans today understand or recall the reasons we severed diplomatic relations with Cuba in 1960. With brutal force, Cuba established dictatorial communism under our noses, and presented America as the great Satan to the Cuban people. Since then, nearly 10 percent of its desperate population has fled Cuba to find refuge in America.

In 1962, Castro and the Soviet Union aimed their nuclear missiles at the United States until President Kennedy imposed the famous blockade, establishing themselves as an enemy.

In 1980, Castro opened the exit doors to their unwanted citizens, including criminals, drug addicts, mentally ill, disabled and political dissidents via the Mariel Boat Lift, which brought an astounding 120,000 refugees into South Florida overnight. Crime tripled, unidentified bodies were everywhere, undocumented criminals hid in shadows, housing, schools and hospitals were overrun.

Today, Hezbollah is an Islamist terror hate group originating from Lebanon, now with tentacles expanding throughout the western world. That includes Cuba. So, why are we pandering to the communist nation, knowing they are aiding and harboring a terrorist organization 90 miles from the shoreline of our country?

According to Judicial Watch, a watchdog organization, and other sources, President Obama lifted the terror-state designation from Cuba in 2015, knowing that Hezbollah had already established a base of operations on the communist island in 2011. That could not have occurred without consent of the Castro regime. This was confirmed when Hillary Clinton’s 2011 communiques were revealed in February of this year citing Israeli intelligence. The email includes, “Hezbollah office has established an operational base in Cuba designed to support terrorist attacks throughout Latin America.”

Besides support for terrorism, there are more reasons not to establish diplomatic relations with Cuba, as articulated by Senator Marco Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants. Rubio recently cited a partial list of needed requirements of Cuba before acquiescing anything to the communist government. That would include:

•Initiate free elections with choices for Cuban people outside of the strict Castro communist mantra.

•Establish free speech. Cuba should stop jailing people indefinitely for speaking out with opposing points of view. (The “Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation” listed 51 prisoners of “conscience,” some jailed over two decades for speaking out against the regime).

•Provide freedom of press, not limited to one state-run information network

•Guarantee that Russia and China will not be allowed listening and jamming stations based in Cuba.

•Cuba must cease being an ally to North Korea

•Cuba must release a convicted cop killer from New Jersey back to the U.S. (JoAnne Chesimard of the Black Liberation Army, who escaped from a New Jersey prison in 1979 and was granted asylum in Cuba)

Being chummy with Cuba may sound like a good idea to some folks, but there’s far more to the story. One look at Wikipedia page “Human Rights in Cuba” provides chilling data which tells much from the behind-the-scenes. Foreign tourists who travel to plush beachfront hotels are unaware about life under Cuban communism on the other side of the propaganda wall.

The Cuban constitution says that control of the press is allowed in keeping with the objectives of socialist society. Reporters Without Borders — an international non-profit watchdog group — ranked Cuba at or near the bottom of Press Freedom Index. The Committee to Protect Journalists group ranked Cuba as one of the ten most censored countries in the world.

The Castro regime has a lot of conceding to do before our taxpayers should be expected to make friends with a nation filled with hatred toward the United States, and who gives sanctuary to those who would destroy us.

LET'S DUMP THE TRUMP

by Dan Friedman
It makes perfect sense for Trump to stoop to the gutter and attack Ted Cruz. In spite of his meretricious pretensions, it's where Trump feels most at home.

Call it a preemptive strike against a man much better than him who’s also a threat to Trump’s grand delusions of power. Two birds with one stone. But now that the field has narrowed, it's a side-by-side comparison, mano-a-mano, and the glaring difference between the two will become even sharper.

If you saw Trump yesterday talking with Chris Mathews about abortion on MSNBC, then you know the unraveling of Trump is well underway. The presidential wannabe was completely incoherent and out of his depth. It almost made me feel embarrassed for the poor guy.

Oh, one more thing. Cruz will beat Trump in Wisconsin next Tuesday.

Of course, I'm betting Americans can still recognize the genuine article, the wheat from the chaff, even after 8 years of rule under another imposter, Barack Hussein Obama.

But if we do have an ounce of common sense left in our body politic, the romance with the Donald will be forgotten well before the Republican convention. Just in the nick of time to avert another disaster.

THE MASS ISLAMIC REFUGEE MIGRATION

by Marshall Frank
Iraq and Syrian refugees are swarming into Europe, and eventually into North America by the millions. It’s good to be humanitarian, but not when it comes to setting the stage for the future dissolution of established cultures. If the growing Islamic settlements in France, England and Sweden are any examples, the people herding into the European stage have no interest in assimilating. According to a Washington Post article in November, 2015, we will see over 3 million displaced middle-east refugees migrating to western nations before the end of 2016. And the forthcoming generations, who knows?

According to Secretary of State John Kerry, the United States will be receiving 85,000 refugees in 2016, and another 100,000 in 2017. It is almost impossible to vet these people who have no valid papers or references, as emphasized by FBI Director, James Comey. Further verification of refugees in Iraq and Syrian war zones would be impossible. The bottom line is that many who intend on doing harm to America could easily be imbedded within the populations, a virtual Trojan Horse scenario. And for certain, if it’s that inviting, it will surely happen. Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson recently told a committee on Capitol Hill, “I do agree that the refugee flow coming out of Syria and Iraq represents a potential opportunity for terrorist organizations.”

It would seem that by inviting all these migrants, European and American nations are basically committing cultural suicide. These trends give cause to reflect on the Muslim Brotherhood’s written decree of 1991, that the long range goal of Jihad is conquest of the west, and to destroy western civilization – From Within. I didn’t write that, they did. See link below re: Explanatory Memorandum of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was vetted and admitted into a federal court trial in 2007.

Why is not anyone asking the big question: Why Europe? Why America?

Saudi Arabia is awash with money, land and resources. The refugees also share the Arab culture and language. Why do we not partner with our so-called Arab ally in alleviating the suffering of middle-east refugees by giving them refuge in lands compatible with their way of life? The United States provides foreign aid by the billions to other middle east countries, including (2013) Yemen $1.3 billion, Lebanon $626 million, Jordan $1.4 billion, Egypt $550 million, and so on, which has been going on for decades. When is it their turn to step up to the proverbial plate and help provide accommodations for their fellow brethren? It is time some of the other Arab-based nations do their share in alleviating the crisis.

But that’s not happening. Why do they get away with it? Because they can. And, because we are stupid.

The concerns should not be limited only to terrorism, although we are seeing spikes of murderous terror raising their ugly heads in recent months. I’m sure there will be much more, because the killers are blending among us. The concerns should also be about preserving our cultures, and our political systems of democracy and civil rights. For, the more we accept the radical Islamic mentality within our borders, and the borders of Europe, the more we will see power capitulate to those who would conquer, and one day, our entire political arena will be dominated and controlled by insurgents…many of whom will be elected into office to manage our cities, towns and states. It’s only a matter of time.

Fanatical Islamic extremists are taking over the streets of Brussels, one of the most liberal and moderate communities in the western world. They are controlling cities in Sweden, such as Malmo. There are hundreds of Islamic no-go zones in France which the authorities avoid. England has capitulated to allow Muslims their Sharia Zones. Greece and Germany are overrun with millions of Islamic refugees.

The National Organization of Women (NOW) better wake up. There are far worse dangers looming for the female gender down the road, than issues like birth control.

When the recent terror attacks killed 35 and injured hundreds more in Europe, the face of America – The President of the United States – appeared to care less, as he missed not a step of his journey, joining joyful waves at a Cuban baseball game and dancing the tango in Argentina, face beaming, while Americans and Europeans suffered from radical Islamic attacks. In a recent speech following Brussels, he said:

“We must reject any attempt to stigmatize Muslim-Americans, and their enormous contributions to our country and our way of life.”

Just what we wanted to hear.

Sometimes I wonder if this mass migration to the free world, is not part of the long range plan. After all, there were alternatives.

Muhammad’s Own Words – Women

Muhammad’s Own Words – Women
1 Comment Posted by angelforisrael on 2013-03-25
Prophet of Doom


Prophet of Doom was written to expose what Islam’s founder had to say about himself, his ambition, religion, and god. Before you use or criticize these quotes, please read this overview from the author. For those who are serious about the study of Islam, be sure to read the source material appendix, entitled Islam’s Dark Past.

Women

Tabari IX:113 “Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur’an.”

Tabari I:280 “Allah said, ‘It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.’ Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid.”

Qur’an 4:3 “If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with orphans, marry women of your choice who seem good to you, two or three or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to do justice (to so many), then only one, or (a slave) that you possess, that will be more suitable. And give the women their dower as a free gift; but if they, of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, eat it with enjoyment, take it with right good cheer and absorb it (in your wealth).”

Qur’an 4:11 “Allah directs you in regard of your Children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females…. These are settled portions ordained by Allah.”

Bukhari:V1B22N28 “The Prophet said: ‘I was shown the Hell Fire and the majority of its dwellers were women who are disbelievers or ungrateful.’ When asked what they were ungrateful for, the Prophet answered, ‘All the favors done for them by their husbands.'”

Muslim:B1N142 “‘O womenfolk, you should ask for forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell.’ A wise lady said: Why is it, Allah’s Apostle, that women comprise the bulk of the inhabitants of Hell? The Prophet observed: ‘You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses. You lack common sense, fail in religion and rob the wisdom of the wise.’ Upon this the woman remarked: What is wrong with our common sense? The Prophet replied, ‘Your lack of common sense can be determined from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to one man. That is a proof.'”

Qur’an 2:282 “And get two witnesses out of your own men. And if there are not two men (available), then a man and two women [a man is worth two women, and one man is always needed], such as you agree for witnesses, so that if one of them (two women) errs, the other can remind her.”

Qur’an 4:43 “Believers, approach not prayers with a mind befogged or intoxicated until you understand what you utter. Nor when you are polluted, until after you have bathed. If you are ill, or on a journey, or come from answering the call of nature, or you have touched a woman, and you find no water, then take for yourselves clean dirt, and rub your faces and hands. Lo! Allah is Benign, Forgiving.” [The Qur’an claims women are unclean and polluted – worse than dirt.]

Bukhara:V4B55N547 “The Prophet said, ‘But for the Israelis, meat would not decay, and if it were not for Eve, wives would never betray their husbands.'”

Qur’an 33:59 “Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and all Muslim women to draw cloaks and veils all over their bodies (screening themselves completely except for one or two eyes to see the way). That will be better.”

Qur’an 4:15 “If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; if they testify, confine them to houses until death [by starvation] claims them.”

“When we reached Khaybar, Muhammad said that Allah had enabled him to conquer them. It was then that the beauty of Safiyah was described to him. Her husband had been killed, so Allah’s Apostle selected her for himself. He took her along with him till we reached a place called Sad where her menses were over and he took her for his wife, consummating his marriage to her, and forcing her to wear the veil.'”

Bukhari:V5B59N524 “The Muslims said among themselves, ‘Will Safiyah be one of the Prophet’s wives or just a lady captive and one of his possessions?'”

Ishaq:593 “From the captives of Hunayn, Allah’s Messenger gave [his son-in-law] Ali a slave girl called Baytab and he gave [future Caliph] Uthman a slave girl called Zaynab and [future Caliph] Umar another.”

“The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.'”

Ishaq:584 “Tell the men with you who have wives: never trust a woman.”

Ishaq:185 “In hell I saw women hanging by their breasts. They had fathered bastards.”

Qur’an 24:31 “Say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty except what (must) appear; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display them except to their husbands…”

Qur’an 24:34 “Force not your slave-girls to whoredom (prostitution) if they desire chastity, that you may seek enjoyment of this life. [And here’s the freedom-to-pimp card:] But if anyone forces them, then after such compulsion, Allah is oft-forgiving.”

Ishaq:469 “The Apostle said, ‘Every wailing woman lies except those who wept for Sa’d.'”
Tabari VIII:62

Ishaq:496 “Ali [Muhammad’s adopted son, son-in-law, and future Caliph] said, ‘Prophet, women are plentiful. You can get a replacement, easily changing one for another.'”

Ishaq:496 “Ask the slave girl; she will tell you the truth.’ So the Apostle called Burayra to ask her. Ali got up and gave her a violent beating first, saying, ‘Tell the Apostle the truth.'”

Qur’an 24:1 “(This is) a surah which We have revealed and made obligatory and in which We have revealed clear communications that you may be mindful. For the woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication, flog each of them with a hundred stripes.

Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah. And let a party of the Believers witness their punishment.”

Qur’an 24:6 “And for those who launch a charge against their wives, accusing them, but have no witnesses or evidence, except themselves; let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies, (swearing four times) by Allah that he is the one speaking the truth.”

The Destroyer Cometh

By Rich Lowry
Donald Trump is running riot in the GOP china shop and gleefully tearing the place up.
Consider the strength of Trump’s position: If he wins South Carolina by a big margin, he goes into Nevada with momentum, and the latest poll there has him leading by 26 points. If he enters Super Tuesday a week later having won three out of the past three states – and with Ted Cruz diminished by a South Carolina loss and Marco Rubio having won nowhere – he could easily win, say, 10 contests that day.

It might still be possible to beat Trump at that point if the field is narrowed (states don’t become winner-take-all until March 15), but doing so would involve wrestling to the ground a candidate who will have cut a formidable swath through the first month of the nomination battle.

Even now, it’s hard to imagine a happy outcome for the party from the three likeliest scenarios:
– If Trump wins the nomination outright, many Republican voters may stay home, and senators and members of the House up for re-election will scurry for cover.

It is certainly possible that Trump will prove a better general-election candidate than expected, just as he has proved a much more potent candidate in the primaries than nearly anyone thought. But it also is likely that the general public will be less enamored or forgiving of those qualities in Trump that have charmed or at least not bothered a plurality of the Republican electorate – the lack of political experience, the foul mouth, the constant psychodrama, the spotty business record.

– If Trump is dragged to an open convention and leads in delegates, but falls short of a majority and is denied the nomination, there will be a bloodbath. Trump will make Andrew Jackson’s angry cry of a “corrupt bargain” after Old Hickory lost the presidency in the House of Representatives in 1824 – despite leading in popular and electoral votes – look like a measured, coolheaded response. Trump will stomp off, and no doubt take a lot of his supporters with him.

– If Trump is beaten prior to a convention, it will presumably require an all-out war against the mogul. Well-heeled Republican donors will have to pour money into a thermonuclear advertising campaign to destroy his image. The party will have to do everything in its power to bolster a Trump alternative. Such an effort will no doubt strike Trump as “unfair,” and he will do all he can to delegitimize it and find targets to sue over it. Needless to say, none of this would be conducive to keeping Trump voters inside the Republican tent.

Has any political party ever had a candidate who is such a wrecking ball, and who isn’t a fringe candidate, but a dominant one?
The Republican front-runner is threatening to sue one of his challengers. The Republican front-runner thinks the last Republican president was guilty of impeachable offenses and lied the country into war. The Republican front-runner routinely attacks his own party for its perfidy – he claims the Iowa caucuses were stolen from him and the debate audiences are stacked against him – and insults his competitors in the harshest, most personal terms.

We’ve grown used to how Trump has treated Jeb Bush in the debates, but that doesn’t make it any less appalling a breach of basic decency. The faces he makes while Bush talks, the constant interrupting, the petty put-downs – all of this would have been thought unworthy of the lowest political guttersnipe but have become an accepted part of the landscape thanks to Donald J. Trump.

The key to Trump’s strength, which buttresses all his outrageousness, is that his supporters want someone to blow up the system. So there’s almost nothing he can say or do that will discredit him in their eyes, and the least destructive scenario for his defeat – Trump blows himself up – will take some doing on his part.

It’s all very entertaining – but so are demolition derbies.

OBAMA AT MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD-LINKED MOSQUE
Muslim Americans Keep Us Safe


When Barack Obama visited the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamic Society of Baltimore on Wednesday, he said: “The first thing I want to say is two words that Muslim Americans don’t hear often enough: Thank you.”

While Obama has been President, Muslims have murdered non-Muslims, avowedly in the cause of Islam, at Fort Hood, Boston, Chattanooga, and San Bernardino, and attempted to do so in many, many other places. Imagine if armed Baptists screaming “Jesus is Lord” had committed murder, and explained that they were doing so in order to advance Christianity, in four American cities, and had attempted to do so in many others.

Imagine that those killers were supporters of a global Christian movement that had repeatedly called for attacks on U.S. civilians and declared its determination to destroy the United States.

Imagine how incongruous it would be in that case for the President of the United States to visit a church and say: “The first thing I want to say is two words that Christian Americans don’t hear often enough: Thank you.” And imagine how unlikely it would be that Barack Obama would ever have done that.

But his visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore was the apotheosis of the Muslim victimhood myth, as he signaled yet again to the world (and worldwide jihadis) that in the U.S., Muslims are victims, victims of unwarranted concern over jihad terror, and thus that concern is likely to lessen even more, as Obama dismantles still more of our counter-terror apparatus.

“We’ve seen children bullied, we’ve seen mosques vandalized,” Obama claimed. “It’s not who we are. We’re one American family. And when any part of our family begins to feel separate or second class, it tears at the heart of our nation” – he said to his gender-segregated Muslim audience, with the womensitting in the back.

In reality, Muslims are not victimized in American society: FBI hate crime statistics show that the hysteria over “Islamophobia” is unfounded, but that matters not at all to Barack Obama. At the mosque, he said: “If we’re serious about freedom of religion — and I’m talking to my fellow Christians who are the majority in this country — we have to understand that an attack on one faith is an attack on all faiths.”

Once again Obama felt free to scold and admonish Christians, but said nothing about Muslims in the U.S. needing to clean house and work for real reform that would mitigate jihad terror. And his premise was false: there is no attempt to restrict Muslims’ freedom of religion. Donald Trump hasn’t called for that; nor has Ben Carson or any serious analyst.

But the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) (a representative of which accompanied Obama to the mosque Wednesday) and other Islamic advocacy groups have consistently charged that counter-terror efforts and attempts to restrict the political, supremacist and authoritarian aspects of Sharia that are at variance with Constitutional principles were tantamount to restricting Muslims’ religious freedom.

Now the President of the United States has endorsed their false narrative, which will only further stigmatize initiatives to understand the jihadis’ ideology and counter it effectively. He further criticized those who dare to suggest that Islam might have something to do with Islamic terrorism by criticizing those who say that the U.S. is at war with Islam: “That kind of mind-set helps our enemies,” he intoned. “It helps our enemies recruit. It makes us all less safe.”

The U.S. certainly isn’t at war with Islam, but segments of the Islamic world are at war with the U.S., and Obama did not explain what might be done to counter the beliefs that have given rise to that idea. He is, of course, against studying the beliefs of the enemy.

Yet he said proudly: “Jefferson and John Adams had their own copies of the Qur’an,” without bothering to mention that they had them in order to understand the ideology of the enemy the new nation faced in the Barbary Pirates. They held, of course, the same ideology he ignores and denies today, the one he ordered all traces of removed from counterterror training.

“Islam,” Obama declared, “has always been part of America.” Really? There were Muslims at Jamestown? In the Massachusetts Bay Colony? At Roanoke? Obama’s statement is so wildly ridiculous that it doesn’t just invite parody; it pleads for it. Remember the Muslims among the Founding Fathers, Yahya al-Adams and Iskandar Hamilton? Remember the Muslims who told James Madison about Muhammad’s Constitution of Medina so that he could lay out the foundations of a republic in the U.S. Constitution? Remember the Muslims who fought so valiantly in the Revolutionary Jihad, and the Jihad of 1812, and the Mexican Jihad, and the Civil War, aka the Jihad Between the Caliphates?

Remember all the controversies about whether Muslim soldiers in the Civil War could make sex slaves out of the wives and daughters of Confederate commanders? The jihad suicide attacks that broke the Germans’ will to fight on during World War I?

Burrowing deeper into fantasy, Obama proclaimed: “Generations of Muslim Americans helped to build our nation.” He didn’t mention the real contributions Muslims have made to our nation: you know, like rearranging the New York skyline, transforming government buildings into grim, nervous fortresses, making air travel into exercise in annoyance and humiliation that it is today, and draining the American economy with two futile wars and hundreds of billions spent on security and counterterror initiatives.

In detailing the contributions that Muslims have made to the U.S., Obama said: “Muslim Americans keep up safe. They are our police. They are our fire fighters. They’re in (the Department of) Homeland Security.” And remember: none of them were screened for jihadi sympathies. To have done so would have been “Islamophobic,” and transgressed against the prevailing dogma that Islam is a Religion of Peace that non-Muslims are wrong and bigoted to be concerned about.

The most ominous thing Obama said in this speech full of treacle and humbug was this: “We’re not going to strengthen our leadership around the world by allowing politicians to insult Muslims or pit groups of Americans against each other. That’s not who we are. That’s not keeping America safe.” So what is he going to do? Destroy the First Amendment and disallow politicians to insult Muslims?

Obama decried “phony tough talk and bluster and over-the-top claims.” Yet in the final analysis, that was all he offered.

The Culture Behind
The Yogurt

Is There A Bug In This Yogurt?

T
By Tabitha Korol
Yogurt is “probiotic,” meaning “for life.” The “good” bacteria help the digestive tract and, because yogurt is made from milk, it’s a good source of calcium. The founder of Chobani yogurt is Hamdi Ulukaya, a Turkish Muslim whose net worth exceeds five billion dollars. He was named “one of the forty most successful entrepreneurs under 40” in 2009, and “Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2013. Unfortunately, the Chobani brand is not without serious side effects.

Hamdi Ukukaya is a member of the Turkish Confederation of Businessmen and Industrials (TUSKON), an organization of 40,000 employers (which also includes Godiva Chocolate) with strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. So in addition to his dairy product activities, he is deeply committed to civilizational jihad, a “pre-violent” form of jihad, through the Gulen Movement, a transnational religious and social effort led by the somewhat reclusive Turkish Islamic scholar and preacher, Fethullah Gulan, who currently resides in Pennsylvania.

Gulen has been depicted as a Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr., but he runs a $25 billion international network and was furtively responsible for changing Turkey from a secular to a strongly Islamized state, now governed by Erdogan. Along with the AKP party that turned Turkey away from the West toward Russia, Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah and Syria, Gulen’s sect portrays itself as a supporter of tolerance and education, although it actually works to slowly and methodically guide, control, and ultimately become the Islamic regime.

Gulen helps to set Turkey’s political agenda, financial institutions, banks, industry, associations, and foundations, and an international network of thousands of schools, universities, and student residences, with the intent of total transformation. His imams have fired or pensioned off original officials and his graduates are deeply entrenched in Turkish government posts and in the 200,000-man police force, including the supervisory level and the director of intelligence at the Turkish Directorate of Security.

Having no more than a fifth grade education, Gulen developed the persona of an intellect and prophet, meeting with representatives of many faiths, including Pope John Paul II, and holding conferences in the US and Europe. Under his leadership, Turkey now has 85,000 active mosques (highest per capita in the world) and 90,000 imams (more than doctors or teachers). He concentrates his indoctrination on students in eighth through twelfth grades, and controls 75 percent of Turkey’s preparatory schools, thousands of secondary schools, colleges and dormitories, and private universities in 110 countries. Aware of Gulen’s radicalization activities, Russia and Uzbekistan have banned his schools and the Netherlands has cut funding, pending further investigation.

Gulen hires Turkish immigrants without education or leadership background to teach mostly underprivileged students in US charter schools at a cost of $150 million per year to taxpayers. Notwithstanding claims of a non-sectarian education that stresses math and science and boasts high achievement, reports indicate that there is no mission statement, curriculum, standards or library, and the students are supervised according to strict Islamic law, with an emphasis on jihad.

How does Hamdi Ulukaya fit into all of this? He brings in Muslim migrants (aka civilizational jihadists), many from Syria, as despairing refugees from the Middle East and North Africa who need unconditional acceptance in America. Idaho has received more than 11,000 migrants since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and they continue to come despite protests from local residents. The world’s largest yogurt factory now employs 600 people, 30 percent of them refugees from the United Nations camps in the Middle East and Africa, and pressures corporate America to also provide jobs, services, and cash. Willing respondents included Google, Goldman Sachs, MasterCard, Ikea, UPS, LinkedIn, and Western Union. He has also taken his case to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, international leaders who believe they know what is best for the rest of us.

Ulukaya recently began a new project, The Tent, which he describes as being “more important than aid.” He explained, “This is a global commitment to invest in building our global capacity for meaningful, humanitarian change?” What is the underlying meaning of the words, "global," and "meaningful humanitarian change?" That they will Islamize the globe to capacity? That they intend to change humanity worldwide, and enforce Sharia law on all infidels?

Ann Corcoran, author of the blog Refugee Resettlement Watch, says The Tent initiative will funnel money and technology into refugee work, leaving Americans and veterans jobless, and that many of the UPS jobs could well be filled by American workers. WND’s Leo Hohmann reported that the Obama administration is increasing our acceptance of the number of Muslim migrants, from 70,000 annually over the past ten years to 85,000 in 2016 and 100,000 in 2017, which includes the 10,000 Syrians in 2016 and “many more” in 2017. And if that were not enough, Obama has also lowered the screening standards, allowing more than 1,500 jihadists who participated in terrorist activity to enter the US.

As a reminder, milk must first be denatured when a culture of bacteria is introduced, and the ensuing process, fermentation, results in permanent change: yogurt. And so it is with America. Our country is currently being denatured with the culture of Islam, through the incoming hordes, and the ensuing process, Islamization, also results in permanent change – the deadly disintegration of our civilization.

Now is the time to contact and enlighten the naïve, altruistic corporations as well as the supermarkets that sell Chobani, It is up to all of us to inform them that the Muslim Brotherhood reinforces 40,000 corporations that are importing jihadists who will bring us the same fears, riots, rapes, deadly attacks and Sharia law now experienced in Europe. Another such group is Global Impact, an alliance of more than 130 international relief and development “non-profit” organizations, including HIAS and Catholic Charities.

Shouldn't we stop supporting the businesses that seek our destruction?

National Review Goes After Trump, Trump Swings Back

National Review, the bulwark of conservative journalism and opinion for 50 years, has, after months of jabs, finally taken off the gloves in its fight against the candidacy of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

With a cover reading simply “Against Trump” and listing well-known conservative contributors like Glenn Beck, William Kristol and Edwin Meese III, the journal founded by William F. Buckley pulled no punches in its attempt to stop the billionaire’s populist campaign.

Led by an editorial, NR warns, “Trump is a philosophically unmoored political opportunist who would trash the broad conservative ideological consensus within the GOP in favor of a free-floating populism with strong-man overtones.”

Calling Trump “a huckster,” they nevertheless cede some credit to him for exposing the disconnect between the Washington GOP and the grassroots. In a warning to conservatives, the editors write, “If they cannot advance a compelling working-class agenda, the legitimate anxieties and discontents of blue-collar voters will be exploited by demagogues.

We sympathize with many of the complaints of Trump supporters about the GOP, but that doesn’t make the mogul any less flawed a vessel for them.”

The editorial’s conclusion is unambiguous is its condemnation of both Trump and those conservatives who’ve expressed support or even embraced him:

Some conservatives have made it their business to make excuses for Trump and duly get pats on the head from him. Count us out. Donald Trump is a menace to American conservatism who would take the work of generations and trample it underfoot in behalf of a populism as heedless and crude as the Donald himself.

In a separate piece in the magazine’s February 15th issue, NR has compiled short essays from 22 commentators, many of whom are conservative leaders.

Radio host Glenn Beck called Trump’s ascension “a crisis for conservatism,” while Weekly Standard editor William Kristol asks, “Isn’t Trumpism a two-bit Caesarism of a kind that American conservatives have always disdained? Isn’t the task of conservatives today to stand athwart Trumpism, yelling Stop?”

Ed Meese, former attorney general under President Ronald Reagan, laments that in a field of strong candidates with solid credentials of leadership, the rise of Trump meant “the political atmosphere is polluted by the vicious personal attacks” rather than a debate of ideas.

Meese concluded, “At a time when the nation is suffering under one of the most divisive and incompetent presidents in history, our people need positive, unifying leadership, not negative, destructive political rhetoric.”

Nationally syndicated columnist Cal Thomas sees the anger of Trump supporters, admitting much of it is justified. However, he concludes, “Anger is not policy. Trump channels a lot of the righteous (and some of the unrighteous) anger of voters and sees the solution as himself. Isn’t a narcissist what we currently have in the White House?”

For his part, Trump responded how he has throughout so much of this campaign — via Twitter.

National Review responded by reminding Trump of what he’d said about the magazine only last April.
As a result of so forcefully speaking out against one candidate, NR publisher Jack Fowler reported they’ve been “disinvited” from co-hosting the February 25 GOP debate in Houston. Fowler wrote, “We expected this was coming. Small price to pay for speaking the truth about The Donald.”

"Lights Out"
on America's Power Grid

ISIS attacks in California and Paris may be just the beginning of an unprecedented plot to bring America to its knees by targeting our nation's scandalously vulnerable electric grid, warn officials at the Pentagon and FBI.

Why? Because terrorist groups like ISIS realize they can't beat us with brute military force on the conventional battlefield. We're way too strong for that.

But when the electric grid fails, it will be like watching America have a heart attack right before your eyes.

It's like when the heart stops pumping... everything shuts down and the patient flat lines.

Our great country would be crippled in a matter of minutes, without our enemies having to fire a single bullet.

It's a frightening idea... and worst of all, it may already have begun to unfold:

ISIS terrorists are already inside our country. Former CIA official Dr. Peter Pry warns, "There is an imminent threat from ISIS to the national electric grid and not just to a single U.S. city." Dr. Pry says that attacks on just 9 of the nation's 55,000 electrical substations could result in nationwide blackouts for up to 18 months.

The government is woefully unprepared. It seems like the government has been fixated on taking more & more away from people who worked hard to earn it, while doing virtually nothing to secure our nation's infrastructure. They've ignored dire warnings from experts about the grid's vulnerability to physical, electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and cyber-attack by ISIS and other terrorist groups.

"Our death toll would be staggering" reports FOXNews. We've all been fine when the power goes out for a few hours and even days, but an extended blackout would be devastating. Frank Gaffney, founder of the Center for Security Policy predicts that "... should the power go out and stay out for over a year, 9 out of 10 Americans would likely perish."

Imagine a blackout lasting not days, but weeks or months. Your life would be frozen in time right at the moment the power fails. Lights all over the country would go out, throwing people into total darkness.

Without access to a generator, your fridge, electric range and microwave would be dead. All the food in your fridge and freezer would spoil.

Your well couldn't pump any fresh water into your house. And even if you don't have a well, a total grid failure means no fresh water to drink, cook, or clean with.

You wouldn't be able to operate your radio or TV, or charge your cell phone, so you'd feel isolated and cut off from your friends and family.

Sadly, this is NOT science fiction or some crazy doomsday theory...

Veteran news anchor Ted Koppel just wrote a book called Lights Out that details this exact scenario. And CENTCOM General Lloyd Austin says, "It's not a question of if, it's a question of when."

That's why many Americans are taking matters into their own hands and are securing their own solar powered generator.

Solar generators are a smart choice because they produce an endless supply of life-saving electricity when you need it most - and without gas, fumes or noise.

Our top recommendation in portable solar generators is the new Patriot Power Generator 1500.

The Patriot Power Generator 1500 is a breakthrough device that generates up to 1,500 continuous watts of clean, quiet, and free renewable power.

That's enough to power lights for safety and comfort, your computer, TV, cell phone, and even small appliances like a small freezer or critical medical device that will sustain your family during a power outage.

You can see a live demo of it in action here

Imagine how much peace of mind you'll have right away when you get your own generator. Because if a crisis hits and your family asks, "When will the power come back on?" you'll calmly reassure them that they're safe and they will have plenty of electricity to power the critical items.

You'll be able to power lights... preserve food... recharge cell phones and computers... and keep critical medical devices going. Your home will be a little island of light and warmth, even if it is dark everywhere else.

Listen, nobody can predict the future. None of us know exactly when or how an attack on our electrical grid will hit.

But from everything we see, it could be soon and it could be devastating.

Why 20 Top Conservatives Oppose Trump

Over 20 conservative leaders published a piece in the National Review urging other conservatives to speak out against Trump, an effort led by National Review editor Rich Lowry who spoke out on "The Kelly File" Thursday night.

"If you are truly are a conservative, you believe in ideas and principles...they are basically afterthoughts to Donald Trump," Lowry said.

The state of the presidency: SPENT


By Charles Krauthammer

President Barack Obama's address to Congress was less about the state of the union than the state of the presidency. And the state of this presidency is spent.

The signs of intellectual exhaustion were everywhere. Consider just three. After taking credit for success in Syria, raising American stature abroad and prevailing against the Islamic State -- one claim more surreal than the next -- Obama was forced to repair to his most well-worn talking point: "If you doubt America's commitment -- or mine -- to see that justice is done, just ask Osama bin Laden."

Really? Five years later, that's all you've got?

Indeed, it is. What else can Obama say? Talk about Crimea? Cite Yemen, Libya, Iraq, the South China Sea, the return of the Taliban?

"Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office," Obama boasted. Surveys, mind you. As if superpower influence is a Miss Universe contest. As if the world doesn't see our allies adrift, our enemies on the march and our sailors kneeling, hands behind their heads, in front of armed Iranians, then forced to apologize on camera.

On the domestic side, Obama's agenda was fairly short, in keeping with his lame-duck status. It was still startling when he worked up a passion for a great "new moonshot": curing cancer.

Is there a more hackneyed national-greatness cliché than the idea that if we can walk on the moon ... ? Or a more hackneyed facsimile of vision than being "the nation that cures cancer"? Do Obama's speechwriters not know that it was Richard Nixon who first declared a war on cancer -- in 1971?

But to see just how bare is the cupboard of ideas of the nation's most vaunted liberal visionary, we had to wait for the stunning anachronism that was the speech finale. It was designed for inspiration and uplift. And for some liberal observers, it actually worked. They were thrilled by the soaring tones as Obama called for, yes, a new politics -- a post-partisan spirit of mutual understanding, rational discourse and respect for one's opponents.

Why, it was hope and change all over again. You'd have thought we were back in 2008.

Or even further back to 2004, when Obama electrified the nation with his Democratic convention speech: "There's not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there's the United States of America."

Tuesday night, Obama did an undisguised, almost phrase-for-phrase reprise of that old promise. Earnestly, he urged us to "see ourselves not, first and foremost, as black or white, or Asian or Latino, not as gay or straight, immigrant or native born, not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans first."

On cue, various commentators were moved by this sermon summoning our better angels. Good grief. I can understand falling for this 12 years ago. But now? A cheap self-quotation, a rhetorical mulligan, from a man who had two presidential terms to act on that transformative vision and instead gave us the most divisive, partisan, tendentious presidency since Nixon.

Rational discourse and respect for one's opponents? This is a man who campaigned up and down the country throughout 2011 and 2012 saying that he cares about posterity, Republicans only about power.

The man who accused opponents of his Iran treaty of "making common cause" with Iranians "chanting death to America."

The man who, after Paul Ryan proposed a courageous, controversial entitlement reform, gave a presidential address -- with Ryan, invited by the White House, seated in the first row -- calling his ideas un-American.

In a final touch of irony, Obama included in his wistful rediscovery of a more elevated politics an expression of reverence for, of all things, how "our founders distributed power between ... branches of government." This after years of repeatedly usurping Congress' legislative power with unilateral executive orders and regulations on everything from criminal justice to climate change to immigration (already halted by the courts).

There is wisdom to the 22nd Amendment. After two terms, presidents are spent. Nothing shows it like a State of the Union valedictory repeating the hollow promises of the yesteryear candidate.

ISLAMIC TERROR: WE MUST KILL THE NEST

By Marshall Frank
All the news is about the San Bernardino massacre, of course, because it occurred on American soil.

With the advent of additional Islamist refugees swarming into western regions, including North America, we can expect these attacks to accelerate.

Radical Islam is a global problem. It is not about a few nice people who were suddenly “radicalized.” This is not just a religion; this is a culture, this is an ideology, this is a form of government and this is a movement that is gaining momentum…and we (Americans) are in the crosshairs. Meanwhile, all our president and Attorney General can worry about is the backlash against Muslims while ISIS, al Qaeda and other terror groups become better financed, better equipped and more emboldened.

Do not let presidential propaganda cloud your heads by insulting our intelligence, saying these people are not Islamic. ISIS, and all the other terror organizations, are absolutely Islamic based. We are doing a terrible job.

When a house is infected with cockroaches, you don’t get rid of them by killing a few here and there. You must kill the nest.

This is not being perpetrated by a few radicals. Rather, they are numbered in the millions and they exist in most countries of the free world, not only Islamic countries. They have a sophisticated communications network. They have leadership. They have multi-millions of dollars that keeps flooding the terror network.

The organized murder machine has randomly executed over 27,300 acts of terror in the last 14 years. It doesn’t matter who we catch, who we kill, who we prosecute or who we expose.

They keep coming, just like those cockroaches. And when we kill one or two, we claim a false victory. Osama bin Laden’s death means nothing, ZERO – other than symbolism. It has deterred nothing.

Einstein to Roosevelt,
August 2, 1939

by LEO SZILARD

In the summer of 1939, six months after the discovery of uranium fission, American newspapers and magazines openly discussed the prospect of atomic energy.

However, most American physicists doubted that atomic energy or atomic bombs were realistic possibilities. No official U.S. atomic energy project existed. Leo Szilard was profoundly disturbed by the lack of American action.

If atomic bombs were possible, as he believed they were, Nazi Germany might gain an unbeatable lead in developing them. It was especially troubling that Germany had stopped the sale of uranium ore from occupied Czechoslovakia.

Unable to find official support, and unable to convince Enrico Fermi of the need to continue experiments, Szilard turned to his old friend Albert Einstein...

Einstein was enjoying a sailing vacation in Peconic on the northern tip of Long Island, New York. On or about July 12, Szilard and fellow Hungarian physicist Eugene Wigner made the short drive from Manhattan in Wigner's car.

Einstein, true to his simple tastes, greeted his visitors wearing an undershirt and rumpled, rolled-up pants. He showed them to his cabin's large, screened-in porch.

Szilard explained the state of international research on uranium and the evidence that a bomb might be possible. Given the seriousness of the situation, Szilard's request was quite modest. He asked if Einstein would warn the Belgian Queen Mother, whom he knew, to prevent the large stockpile of uranium ore in the Belgian Congo from falling into Nazi hands.

Einstein agreed to the idea, but he preferred to write to another friend, the Belgian ambassador. Einstein dictated a letter in German, which Wigner took down.

Within days, however, the plan became much more far-reaching when Szilard discussed the matter with economist Alexander Sachs. Sachs, who was an unofficial adviser to President Franklin Roosevelt, urged that Einstein should write directly to the President. If Einstein wrote such a letter, Sachs promised to deliver it to the President personally.

If they could gain the ear of the President, the Belgian uranium ore became a minor issue. Szilard produced a four-page draft letter, which he mailed to Einstein on July 19. By telephone, Einstein asked to discuss it with Szilard in person.

In the last days of July, Szilard returned to Einstein's vacation cabin. Because Wigner was out of town, Hungarian physicist Edward Teller acted as Szilard's chauffeur. Einstein again greeted his guests informally, wearing old clothes and slippers. He served them tea on the shady porch while they discussed the new approach.

Einstein was willing to write to the President. As a life-long pacifist, he opposed the making of weapons, but he could not allow the Nazis sole possession of such destructive power. His only objection was that Szilard's letter was long and somewhat awkward.

He preferred a shorter message stressing the main points. Einstein dictated a short draft in German which Szilard took down.

Over the next few days, Szilard translated Einstein's dictation, going through draft after draft. In the end, he prepared both a short and a long version. On August 2, he mailed them to Einstein. Einstein returned both versions signed, but he expressed a preference for the longer version. This was the version, dated August 2, that Szilard gave to Sachs for delivery to the President.

Einstein's letter did not reach the President quickly, however, nor did it have much effect. On September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland and World War II began. Sachs finally met with the President on October 11 and presented Einstein's letter. The President appointed a "Uranium Committee," but it approved only $6,000 to buy graphite and uranium for experiments Szilard proposed.

For the next two years, official skepticism continued to stall U.S. research efforts. A large-scale U.S. atomic project did not begin until December 6, 1941, one day before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It became the "Manhattan" Project in August 1942.

TRAITOR SENATORS TOOK MONEY FROM IRAN LOBBY, BACK IRAN NUKES

by DAVID HOROWITZ

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

Senator Markey has announced his support for the Iran deal that will let the terrorist regime inspect its own Parchin nuclear weapons research site, conduct uranium enrichment, build advanced centrifuges, buy ballistic missiles, fund terrorism and have a near zero breakout time to a nuclear bomb.

There was no surprise there.

Markey had topped the list of candidates supported by the Iran Lobby. And the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) had maxed out its contributions to his campaign.

After more fake suspense, Al Franken, another IAPAC backed politician who also benefited from Iran Lobby money, came out for the nuke sellout.

Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Iran Lobby’s third Dem senator, didn’t bother playing coy like her colleagues. She came out for the deal a while back even though she only got half the IAPAC cash that Franken and Markey received.

As did Senator Gillibrand, who had benefited from IAPAC money back when she first ran for senator and whose position on the deal should have come as no surprise.

The Iran Lobby had even tried, and failed, to turn Arizona Republican Jeff Flake. Iran Lobby cash had made the White House count on him as the Republican who would flip, but Flake came out against the deal. The Iran Lobby invested a good deal of time and money into Schumer, but that effort also failed.

Still these donations were only the tip of the Iran Lobby iceberg.

Gillibrand had also picked up money from the Iran Lobby’s Hassan Nemazee. Namazee was Hillary’s national campaign finance director who had raised a fortune for both her and Kerry before pleading guilty to a fraud scheme encompassing hundreds of millions of dollars. Nemazee had been an IAPAC trustee and had helped set up the organization.

Bill Clinton had nominated Hassan Nemazee as the US ambassador to Argentina when he had only been a citizen for two years. A spoilsport Senate didn’t allow Clinton to make a member of the Iran Lobby into a US ambassador, but Nemazee remained a steady presence on the Dem fundraising circuit.

Nemazee had donated to Gillibrand and had also kicked in money to help the Franken Recount Fund scour all the cemeteries for freshly dead votes, as well as to Barbara Boxer, who also came out for the Iran nuke deal. Boxer had also received money more directly from IAPAC.

In the House, the Democratic recipients of IAPAC money came out for the deal. Mike Honda, one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Iran Lobby backed the nuke sellout. As did Andre Carson, Gerry Connolly, Donna Edwards and Jackie Speier. The Iran Lobby was certainly getting its money’s worth.

But the Iran Lobby’s biggest wins weren’t Markey or Shaheen. The real victory had come long before when two of their biggest politicians, Joe Biden and John Kerry, had moved into prime positions in the administration. Not only IAPAC, but key Iran Lobby figures had been major donors to both men.

That list includes Housang Amirahmadi, the founder of the American Iranian Council, who had spoken of a campaign to “conquer Obama’s heart and mind” and had described himself as “the Iranian lobby in the United States.” It includes the Iranian Muslim Association of North America (IMAN) board members who had fundraised for Biden. And it includes the aforementioned Hassan Nemazee.

A member of Iran’s opposition had accused Biden’s campaigns of being “financed by Islamic charities of the Iranian regime based in California and by the Silicon Iran network.” Biden’s affinity for the terrorist regime in Tehran was so extreme that after 9/11 he had suggested, “Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran”.

Appeasement inflation has since raised that $200 million to at least $50 billion. But there are still no strings worth mentioning attached to the big check.

Questions about donations from the Iran Lobby had haunted Kerry’s campaign. Back then Kerry had been accused of supporting an agreement favorable to Iran. The parameters of that controversial proposal however were less generous than the one that Obama and Kerry are trying to sell now.

The hypothetical debates over the influence of the Iran Lobby have come to a very real conclusion.

Both of Obama’s secretaries of state were involved in Iran Lobby cash controversies, as was his vice president and his former secretary of defense. Obama was also the beneficiary of sizable donations from the Iran Lobby. Akbar Ghahary, the former co-founder of IAPAC, had donated and raised some $50,000 for Obama.

It’s an unprecedented track record that has received very little notice. While the so-called “Israel Lobby” is constantly scrutinized, the fact that key foreign policy positions under Obama are controlled by political figures with troubling ties to an enemy of this country has gone mostly unreported by the mainstream media.

This culture of silence allowed the Iran Lobby to get away with taking out a full-page ad in the New York Times before the Netanyahu speech asking, “Will Congress side with our President or a Foreign Leader?”

Iran’s stooges had taken a break from lobbying for ballistic missiles to play American patriots.

Obama and his allies, Iranian and domestic, have accused opponents of his dirty Iran deal of making “common cause” with that same terror regime and of treason. The ugly truth is that he and his political accomplices were the traitors all along.

Democrats in favor of a deal that will let a terrorist regime go nuclear have taken money from lobbies for that regime. They have broken their oath by taking bribes from a regime whose leaders chant, “Death to America”. Their pretense of examining the deal is nothing more than a hollow charade.

This deal has come down from Iran Lobby influenced politicians like Kerry and is being waved through by members of Congress who have taken money from the Iran Lobby. That is treason plain and simple.

Despite what we are told about its “moderate” leaders, Iran considers itself to be in a state of war with us. Iran and its agents have repeatedly carried out attacks against American soldiers, abducted and tortured to death American officials and have even engaged in attacks on American naval vessels.

Aiding an enemy state in developing nuclear weapons is the worst form of treason imaginable. Helping put weapons of mass destruction in the hands of terrorists is the gravest of crimes.

The Democrats who have approved this deal are turning their party into a party of atom bomb spies.

Those politicians who have taken money from the Iran Lobby and are signing off on a deal that will let Iran go nuclear have engaged in the worst form of treason and committed the gravest of crimes. They must know that they will be held accountable. That when Iran detonates its first bomb, their names will be on it.

U.S. Worldwide Travel Alert


The State Department issued a worldwide travel alert Monday over possible risks due to increased terrorism threats.

The alert comes amid information that ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, and other terrorist groups continue to plan attacks in multiple regions by employing a “wide variety of tactics,” according to the State Department.

Authorities believe the likelihood of terror attacks will continue as members of ISIS return from Iraq and Syria, as well as the threat from “unaffiliated persons” planning attacks inspired by major terrorist organizations.

The State Department said that U.S. citizens should “exercise vigilance when in public places or using transportation” and “avoid large crowds or crowded places.”

Americans are also urged to exercise particular caution during the holiday season, and at holiday festivals or events. The worldwide travel alert expires on Feb. 24, 2016.

The alert was issued after multiple attacks in the past year in France, Nigeria, Denmark, Turkey and Mali in the past year, as well as the bombing of a Russian airliner in Egypt, for which ISIS has claimed responsibility.

The State Department said that U.S. citizens should factor updated information into personal travel plans, and urges anyone with specific safety concerns to contact local law enforcement authorities.

A State Department official told Fox News that worldwide alerts “are issued periodically when there is a higher threat level," and are not the same as a warning tied to a particular event, like an election or hurricane.

“We want folks to still travel, but just to exercise greater vigilance,” the official said.

But despite the label “worldwide,” the alerts do not cover the territory of the United States itself.

The travel alert was issued the same day that Belgium's prime minister announced that Brussels would remain at the highest alert level for at least another week.

The increased security measures following the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris that killed 130 people have virtually shut down the Belgian capital.

There have been a total of six worldwide travel alerts in the last four-and-a-half years.

Fox News' James Rosen and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

>We Were Warned (in 1899)

by Winston Churchill

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.

The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity.

The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.

No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.

Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

Sir Winston Churchill; (Source: The River War, first edition, Vol II, pages 248-250 London).

A LESSON FOR U.S. VOTERS

from Dan Friedman
'Jews In the Land of Make Believe' - one
-world-trade-center-paris-attacks

Some of us will never "get it." In the wake of the Paris massacre, many Israelis and other Jews are calling on the civilized West to adopt a new meme, "We are all Israel now." Sorry friends, but it will never catch on. Kumbaya is the official anthem of the "peace makers," but Hatikvah will never make it into the songbook.

Jews may long to be one of the boys, but history has other ideas. After the flowers dry in front of the Bataclan theater, the memorial candles go out all over Paris, and the World Trade Center’s red, white and blue lights are extinguished in NYC, the "international community" - including France - will revert to type and go back to their psychotic obsession with Jews and Israel. After a short timeout (if that) they will turn their attention back to the stuff that really matters: Jewish building in Jerusalem and boycotting oranges grown in Israel.

Yet, there is this irony. The Muslims will always keep silly daydreamers honest - either at the point of a knife or the tip of a Muslim H-Bomb. Heck, they haven’t let us down in 1400 years! The only question is, are 130 dead in Paris going to be enough to convince us who the real enemy is and who’s trying to destroy our way of life? If not, the religion of peace will be glad to oblige with an endless supply of cadavers – both Jews and gentiles.

Why Do Working Americans Support Job-Killing Democrats?

By Star Parker
After years of review, President Obama has killed the Keystone XL pipeline project. The pipeline would have moved crude oil from Western Canada to Nebraska, where it would have connected to existing pipelines and moved the oil to refineries at the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The exact number of jobs that the project would have created was disputed, but a reasonable estimate seems to be several thousand jobs. These would have been largely blue-collar jobs, which is why labor unions, usually a constituency that a Democratic president seeks to please, supported the project.

But another Democratic constituency, the environmental lobby, opposed the project, and they won the day with our president. { BOLD }

Immediately after the president killed the project, the three Democrat presidential contenders — Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley — endorsed the president’s decision.

Looking at the rationale the president used to justify his politically motivated decision to kill this pipeline project raises the question, “Why do so many working-class Americans, and in particular low-income Americans, continue to support big-government Democrats, who are more interested in their left-wing agendas than creating jobs and prosperity in America?”

Polls regularly show the economy and jobs at the top of the concerns of Americans. And on that front, this president has been a particular disaster.

But you wouldn’t know it listening to his justification for killing this project.

“The pipeline would not make a meaningful long-term contribution to our economy,” said the president. He then continued on to describe how the economy has supposedly thrived under his watch.

“Our businesses created 268,000 new jobs last month. They’ve created 13.5 million new jobs over the past 68 months — the longest streak on record. The unemployment rate fell to 5 percent.”

We must wonder if President Obama knows better or if he actually believes this deceptive and distorted picture about what is going on with our economy.

We are experiencing one of the most sluggish economic recoveries in history.

In a paper submitted for the Focusing the Presidential Debates Project, Hoover Institution economist John Cochrane points out, “sclerotic growth is the overriding economic issue of our time.”

Cochrane notes, “from 1950 to 2000 the US economy grew at an average rate of 3.5 percent per year. … From the bottom of the great recession in 2009, usually a time of super-fast catch-up growth, it has only grown at two percent per year.”

What does this mean in terms of jobs?

In contrast to the 13.5 million jobs created over the last 68 months that President Obama brags about, Ed Lazear, a Stanford economist and former chairman of President George W. Bush’s council of economic advisers, notes that if the economy had grown sufficiently fast to “make up for the recession and keep pace with growing population” it would have created 17.5 million jobs.

In other words, there are 4 million fewer jobs today than there would have been had the economic recovery been sufficiently robust to make up for the losses caused by the recession.

Why is this recovery so poor? Because this recent pipeline decision characterizes all the economic decision-making that has been taking place over the last seven years.

It’s all about government, political power and interests rather than allowing what drove the 3.5 percent economic growth from 1950 to 2000 — free enterprise.

President and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce Harry Alford recently spoke at the Port of New Orleans about the suffocation of business at the hands of the regulatory state.

According to Alford, “every year since 2009, federal agencies have piled on about $150 billion in new compliance costs.” He says the total impact of regulatory costs now exceed $2 trillion.

All working Americans must hear from Republicans that economic growth is our No. 1 priority. And free enterprise is the only way to do it.

BLUE LIVES MATTER TOO

'BLUE LIVES MATTER, BUT ANARCHY GROWS'
By Marshall Frank

On the night of Oct. 20, shots were heard in the area of East Harlem. Cops responded. A suspect was confronted by officers. He had a gun. He fired, they fired. Randolph Holder, 33, died from a bullet in the head.

The shooting resulted in the death of a black man. Only, this black man was a five-year veteran of NYPD. Indeed, a black life who mattered.

Four cops have been murdered in just one police department – NYPD – in the last 11 months. Two were virtually ambushed. Thirteen others have been ambushed around the nation.

Four days after Randolph Holder was killed, “Black Lives Matter” anarchists took to the streets to protest all police officers. Ten months ago, a mob in New York chanted in streets, “What do we want? Dead Cops!” Those same hated cops made sure the streets were secured and marchers were protected. In April of 2015, Baltimore anarchists burned the city and destroyed property posing as “protesters.”

Where is this country going?

Cops – our protectors – were ordered to stand down as rocks and torches were hurled at them, sending dozens to the hospital. It seemed they were ordered there to be ridiculed.

Does the history matter that some of those career cops in New York, Baltimore and Ferguson had been given medals of valor for saving the lives of men, women and children when called to dire situations? Does it matter that these same cops risked their lives over and over, being dispatched to hundreds of calls to quell violence and/or protect innocent people from others?

Meanwhile, anarchists parade, scream, demean and promote hatred. And our leaders, including some mayors, politicians and even the White House do or say nothing to bring peace and truth to America.

The lightning rod cases cited by anarchists – Michael Brown in Ferguson; Eric Garner in Staten Island; Freddie Gray in Baltimore – each have a common thread: crime and thuggery.

Michael Brown strong-arm robbed a store and then attacked a cop in his car, trying to wrestle his gun away. The Attorney General determined the shooting was justified.

Career criminal Eric Garner baited police while a friend shot videos. He deliberately resisted arrest. Without weapons, they used minimal force needed to take down the 350 pound behemoth. No one knew that Garner suffered from serious asthma.

Freddie Gray had a long history of criminal activity. He suffered injuries in the police van, and we still don’t know how or why. Nevertheless, six cops were charged; three black.

Most puzzling is how some well-meaning people are so easily swayed to believe the propaganda. With goodness in their hearts, they stand up for minorities and no matter the evidence, they fall lock-step with protest programs without questioning validity. The fallout portends a dangerous future for law abiding people in our cities.

FBI Director, James Comey, recently spoke out in opposition to the president’s mantra. He said cops have told him they constantly feel taunted by youths with cell phones.

“In today’s YouTube world,” Comey said, “officers are reluctant to get out of their car.” He cited a renewed spike in violent crime, adding, “I do have a strong sense that some part of the explanation is a chill wind blowing through American law enforcement over the last year. And that wind is surely changing behavior.”

Of course, bad cops should be weeded out. So should bad politicians.

The constant denigration of police by “Black Lives Matter,” and the validation provided by media, is destined to spawn divisiveness, anarchy and hatred. All that will embolden more crime and give cause for average cops to tacitly withdraw in deference to protecting their own families and their futures. It’s getting personal.

Blue lives matter too.

An Ayatollah's Dream... End of America

Written by : Amir Taheri

The topic was at the center of a daylong seminar in Tehran last week attended by ambassadors from Bolivia, Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Venezuela, plus a number of Islamic Iranian officials and scholars.

The five Latin American nations with left-wing regimes represent one of the “clusters” that former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad tried to organize as points of anti-American “resistance” across the globe. Another “cluster” consisted of Lebanon, controlled through the local branch of Hezbollah, Syria, under Bashar Al-Assad, and parts of Iraq dominated by pro-Tehran armed groups. The plan was to set up another “cluster” by breaking up the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) bloc through the Finlandization of some of its members while seizing control of Yemen through local Trojan outfits.

Next month, Tehran is scheduled to host the fifth annual “End of America” conference with a number of professional anti-American figures from Europe and the US itself also expected.

However, the timing of the exercise is puzzling. For the first time in almost a decade, the presidency, and part of the government including the foreign ministry seem to be controlled by the so-called Rafsanjani faction that has been trying to make a deal with the Americans since the late 1980s.

Many in Tehran now wonder whether this year’s “End of America” will take place at all. A number of “Afro-American families of victims of US police brutality” have already been invited along with European religious leaders and scholars opposed to the “Great Satan.”

Some pro-Rafsanjani commentators in Tehran, including a few in the entourage of President Hassan Rouhani, argue against the holding of another “End of America” conference as unnecessary at best and wanton provocation at worst.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif argues that the US has shown its goodwill by bending backward to satisfy Iran’s demands in the nuclear negotiations. It would be foolish to provoke the US at a time that Tehran needs Washington’s support to destroy the edifice of sanctions and kick the whole nuclear saga into the long grass.

More than 30 years ago, Khomeini’s intransigence led to the destruction of Jimmy Carter’s presidency, depriving Iran of a friend in Washington. It would be foolish to repeat the same mistake by humiliating Obama and, through him the Democrat Party, thus helping the return to power of the Republicans who are committed to making life difficult for the Khomeinist regime.

Seen from Tehran the ideal outcome of next year’s presidential election in the United States would be the nomination and victory of either Vice President Joseph Biden or Secretary of State John Kerry. Both men have a history of decades of support for the Khomeinist revolution and the Islamic Republic and remain committed to promoting closer ties with Tehran under the mullahs.

Another four, or perhaps even eight years of Obama’s policies would nicely coincide with the duration of the Vienna nuke deal which envisages “a final closing of the dossier” by 2023 at the latest. Until then, Iran would be kept a year away from building a nuclear arsenal if it so decides. After that, Iran could do so within 60 days, again if it so wished.

More importantly, another eight years of Obama’s strategy would make it immensely difficult, if not impossible in practical terms, for any future US administration to revive the Pax Americana as a viable option. The Obama strategy is aimed at shrinking the American military footprint across the world. Dozens of bases are being closed down or reduced to merely symbolic proportions. Within what is left of Obama’s presidential term, the US army alone is scheduled to fire at least 40,000 of its soldiers. Under Obama the US has undergone the biggest cut in defense expenditure it has experienced since the heady days of post-Cold War and its “peace dividends”.

More importantly, perhaps, Obama has managed to sour, if not actually destroy, America’s old alliances in many parts of the world, notably the Middle East. Even an old and loyal ally such as Great Britain has publicly played the card of privileged ties with China, implicitly taking note of the American retreat.

Obama has changed the image of the US as “the winner” into the loser as borne out by a series of crises from the annexation of Georgian and Ukrainian territories by Moscow to the emergence of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the resurgence of Taliban in Afghanistan, not to mention Tehran’s heightened profile in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.

Obama’s dramatic “red line” warning to Assad, followed by an equally dramatic consumption of humble pie, highlighted the United States’ new status as “the loser.”

The American global retreat has already led to a more emphatic assertion by China of its position as a great Asian power. It has also encouraged the nationalist trend in Japan to the point of seeking constitutional change to allow the nation to deploy troops abroad and, later perhaps, even develop a nuclear arsenal.

Latin America is divided into two rival blocs of left and right powers, with the US less and less regarded as a major player.

In Europe and central Asia, Russia is moving fast to regain part of lost influence and project power wherever it can. Many of the local conflicts mothballed thanks to US mediation are becoming active again, from Transcaucasia to the Indo-Pakistani Subcontinent.

The Israel-Palestine conflict is exploding in the void created by the total collapse of US-backed “peace talks.”

Ending Pax Americana may turn out to be good for the Americans in which case Obama could enter history as a wise visionary.

However, even if such is the case, the mullahs have every interest to encourage Obama in his present strategy and, within their modest means, to help the Obama line continue under Kerry or, even Hillary Clinton as the least bad option.

Many might see the “End of America” world as a far more dangerous place. The mullahs, however, would regard it as the fulfilment of Khomeini’s dream.

GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION NOT THE ANSWER


by Marshall Frank

This Op-Ed appears in Florida Today, this date.

We need gun control about as much as we need car control. Both are deadly instruments, but the current threshold for accountability is far different for one than the other.

When we buy or sell an automobile, it requires a title, registration, tag and insurance. When we buy or sell a firearm, none of this applies. I can sell my pistol at a yard sale where there is no way to trace ownership. Dealers, however, must conduct background checks, only because they are licensed retailers. Forty percent of hand guns are not purchased from licensed dealers.

Fact: None of the recent mass shootings would have been deterred by more gun control legislation. But they could have been abated with better laws dealing with mental illness.

Private gun sales are legal, requiring no background checks. Most guns used in violent crime are stolen in burglaries or they are bought on the black market, none of which pertains to licensed dealers or gun show loopholes. The emphasis on background checks is misleading, because they only disapprove buyers who have established a police record. Criminals often pay someone else with no record to purchase a gun on their behalf.

In several mass shootings, the killers bought no guns at all. They took them from households where they were legally owned.

Most mass killings of recent years were committed by first-time offenders who can pass background checks despite suffering from serious psychosis. There is no data bank for mentally ill people, unless they have been confined by the justice system to an institution. Crazy people like the shooter in an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater or at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, were known to be mentally unstable by friends and family, but there was nothing they could do until a tragedy happened.

A U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1975 (O’Connor v. Donaldson) ruled that mental institutions could not hold sick people against their will. This eventually led to emptying 90 percent of patients from mental hospitals. Treatment was replaced with drugs like Thorazine, or with jail cells after they committed a crime. Prisons are now the default entity for treating violently ill people, which is no treatment at all.

President Obama and his supporters are predictably fast to blame the need for more gun control when mass shootings occur, as though it’s the end-all solution, which is untrue. Before the bodies are autopsied and investigations are still pending, the omniscient president passes judgment on the cause of these crimes. His focus is erroneous. Cars don’t kill people, drivers kill people. Guns and knives don’t kill, people do. We must do something about dangerous people who are prone toward irresponsibility or violence, regardless of what instrument they use.

As a former law enforcement officer, I agree that greater accountability (not “control”) is needed in the firearms industry. That’s so law enforcement can sink its teeth into criminal investigations. When the police nab street thugs in possession of firearms, there is no way to determine how or when they were bought, sold or stolen, or the owner’s identity. If titles and registrations were required for all gun sales, along with insurance, we would have an accountability factor for every gun recovered in criminal investigations, or those possessed by criminals. Meanwhile, people could still purchase and own, in accordance with the Second Amendment.

The crux of the problem is mental health, which is where the focus should be. But politicians avoid the obvious it because it’s intangible and more complicated. Our mental health systems and services are virtually defunct in a country with 310 million people. When friends, family members and teachers are astutely aware that a person is walking around out of touch from reality, we should have means by which to isolate, evaluate and treat to prevent disasters before they happen. We owe it to future victims.

Stressing gun control is a worn-out broken record. Let’s think outside the box.

Bill Ayers Weather Underground,
Then and now...

The Weather Underground.

Before There Was ISIS, There Was the Weather Underground.

Like the radical left-wing domestic terrorists befriended two decades ago by Barack Hussein Obama, the totalitarian mass murderers of the Islamic State are reportedly determined to kill millions of Americans. Slaughtering Americans by the millions was a key objective of the Weather Underground Organization (WUO), which was led during the Vietnam War era by Obama's close Chicagoland friend and Hyde Park neighbor Bill Ayers, among other individuals. Ayers described the Weatherman philosophy as "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at."

He was delighted in the 1980s when riot incitement and conspiracy charges against him were thrown out. "Guilty as sin, free as a bird," Ayers gloated. "America is a great country," he said for the first and only time in his life. Obama infamously began his career in electoral politics at a fundraiser in 1995 in the home of the unrepentant small-c communist terrorist bomber Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, another former WUO leader.

The Weather Underground plan was ambitious – 25 million Americans deemed unsusceptible to communist brainwashing were to be liquidated – but relatively modest compared to the 500 million souls in the Western world that Islamic State aims to vaporize with nuclear weapons.

German journalist Jürgen Todenhöfer, who spent 10 anxious days living in Islamic State-held Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor in Syria with the jihadists, wants the world to know that the terrorist group is deadly serious about unleashing a "nuclear tsunami" on those who oppose its efforts to create an Islamic caliphate. According to Todenhöfer, a 75-year-old Christian and pacifist, "[t]his is the largest religious cleansing strategy that has ever been planned in human history."

"Not just head-cutting. I'm talking about the strategy of religious cleansing. That's their official philosophy. They are talking about 500 million people who have to die."

Islamic State "fighters are much smarter and more dangerous than our leaders believe. In the Islamic State, there is an almost palpable enthusiasm and confidence of victory, which I have not seen in many war zones."

To date, the West remains clueless as to how this threat is to be addressed.

Islamic State warriors are convinced that their totalitarian faith and demonstrative brutality will help them move mountains, and that their military victories justify their confidence. In congenital denial about the threat Islamic militancy poses to free nations, Obama said a year ago that "ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim."

Obama told the United Nations this week that the Islamic State can be vanquished with tough love and social programs. "Ideologies are not defeated with guns," the historically illiterate president told U.N. delegates. "They are defeated by better ideas – a more attractive and compelling vision."

Which brings us back to Obama buddy Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground.

In his 1976 book, Bringing Down America, Grathwohl summed up why he took the unusual step of joining the Weather Underground in order to undermine it. He feared that these New Left revolutionary communists might actually make headway with their totalitarian program.

"The Weathermen’s government will be one of total control over each individual in the society," he wrote. "In Weathermen terminology, this new society will be 'one people working in total unity.'" "This means an elimination of all the individual freedoms we are accustomed to having; it was my absolute belief in the freedoms offered by our form of government that drove me to fight the Weathermen in the first place."

Grathwohl attended a kind of Wannsee Conference at which Weather Underground operatives plotted the murder of 25 million Americans. At the Wannsee meeting in 1942, Hitler's cabinet members and senior bureaucrats set in motion the “Final solution to the Jewish question,” which led to the systematic murder of six million Jews.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people most of which have graduate degrees from Columbia and other well known educational centers and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people and they were dead serious. In its heyday, WUO bombed the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, and various other sites of national importance throughout the 1970s. One of its senior leaders, trust fund baby Bill Ayers, now portrayed by the media as an innocuous education reformer, told the New York Times in 2001 that he didn’t regret what he did and he’d likely do it again.

Ayers denies that the Weather Underground's Wannsee Conference ever happened and claims that the WUO never killed anyone. If that's true, it wasn't for lack of trying. One nail bomb that was supposed to be used to murder U.S. servicemen blew up in the Greenwich Village townhouse where it was being made.

In 1970, Ayers’ then-girlfriend Diana Oughton, along with Weatherman members Terry Robbins and Ted Gold, were killed when a bomb they were constructing exploded unexpectedly. That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by hundreds of Army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Ayers himself attested that the bomb would have done serious damage, “tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too.” Notably, Ayers' fingerprints were found at the bomb-making site, along with an assortment of anti-personnel weapons, stabbing implements, C-4 plastic explosive[s], and dozens of Marxist-Leninist publications.

The Weather Underground also reportedly tried to get its hands on weapons of mass destruction, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jack Anderson reported in his "Washington Merry-Go-Round" column in 1970 ("Weatherman Seeking BW Germs," Washington Post, Nov. 20, 1970).
When Obama was campaigning in 2008, commentator Andrew C. McCarthy ridiculed Ayers for claiming that the Weathermen never hurt or even tried to hurt anybody. These savages wanted to kill massively. That they killed only a few people owes to our luck and their incompetence, not design. They, and the Democrat politicians who now befriend and serve them can rationalize that all they want, but those are the facts.
