Limits of Assimllation

Jack Kemp forwards this:

Mogadishu, Minnesota

A massive daycare fraud in America’s most welcoming state raises questions about the limits of assimilation.

When it was noted that the carry-on bags of multiple airline passengers traveling from Minneapolis to Somalia contained millions of dollars in cash, on a regular basis, law enforcement was naturally curious to know where the money came from and where it was going. It soon emerged that millions of taxpayer dollars, and possibly much more, had been stolen through a massive scam of Minnesota’s social-services sector, specifically through fraudulent daycare claims. To make matters worse, the money appears to have wound up in areas of Somalia controlled by al-Shabab, the Islamic jihadist group responsible for numerous terrorist outrages.

Starting in the 1990s, the State Department directed thousands of refugees from Somalia’s civil war to Minnesota, which is now home to the largest population of Somalis outside Somalia itself. As the Washington Times noted in 2015, in Minnesota, these refugees "can take advantage of some of America’s most generous welfare and charity programs.” Professor Ahmed Samatar of Macalester College in St. Paul observed, "Minnesota is exceptional in so many ways but it’s the closest thing in the United States to a true social democratic state.” A high-trust, traditionally homogenous community with a deep civil society marked by thrift, industriousness, and openness, Minnesota seemed like the ideal place to locate an indigent Somali population now estimated at 100,000.

Dennis Prager on MS-13 "Animals"

Jack Kemp forwards this article from Dennis Prager at Townhall.

Here's a brief excerpt:

If you want to understand the moral sickness at the heart of leftism, read the first paragraph of the most recent column by Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne:

"It's never right to call other human beings 'animals.' It's not something we should even have to debate. No matter how debased the behavior of a given individual or group, no matter how much legitimate anger that genuinely evil actions might inspire, dehumanizing others always leads us down a dangerous path."

Let's begin with the first sentence: "It's never right to call other human beings 'animals.'"

This is so self-evident to Dionne that he adds, "It's not something we should even have to debate."

Only someone who has never debated the issue could make such a claim.

So allow me to debate the assertion.

Only in America

Jack Kemp

An Iranian arrives in Los Angeles and is met by an old buddy from Iran. The new arrival starts speaking Farsi to his buddy. His Americanized buddy tells him, "Abdul, you're in America now. Speak Spanish!"

A new immigrant...make that resident.... arrives in New York and meets his buddy from the Old Country. They are walking down the street when they spot a wallet on the ground that has about $200 in cash sticking out of it. The new arrival starts to bend down to pick it up, thinking that what they said back home, that in America the streets are paved with gold. Suddenly, his Americanized buddy stops him and says, "Etan, you're in America one day and already you want to bend down to do stoop labor?"

Eric Holder's Desperate Hour

Timothy Birdnow

Eric Holder tries to stop Trump from launching an investigation into the DOJ/FBI/CIA.

Here is his tweet:

Trump demand for DOJ investigation is dangerous/democracy threatening. DOJ response is disappointing.There is no basis/no predicate for an https://t.co/UZn0rCUpcK’s time to stand for time honored DOJ independence.That separation from White House is a critical part of our system.

— Eric Holder (@EricHolder) May 21, 2018

Does this surprise anyone? Holder began the process of weaponizing the DOJ, and an investigation could land him in serious trouble. more...

Strife on the Mississippi: Eric Greitens gets off - for now

Brian Birdnow

By now, the news that Eric Greitens, the current governor of Missouri, has survived a felony invasion of privacy charge is fading from national consciousness, and there are many concerned citizens who are undoubtedly happy to forget this sordid story, and go back to business as usual. The story has been underplayed by the national media, and has been intentionally misinterpreted by local and regional news outlets, with politics rearing its ugly head, as we all might expect. In the interest of full disclosure, your humble Aviary correspondent has friends in both camps here. I am personally acquainted with members of the Greitens defense team, and also know individuals in the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office. Moreover, I did not vote for Greitens in the Missouri Republican gubernatorial primary in August, 2016. I hope this establishes my bonafides, and allows me to proceed without being brushed off as a shill for either side in the case.

Pope Francis Excuses Homosexuality - Again

Timothy Birdnow

Once again, Pope Francis upends established Christian dogma. This time the volatile vicar blames God for Sins of the flesh, telling a gay man "God made you that way" in and thus excusing what has been understood as a mortal sin.

According to the Fox News article:

"Cruz reportedly told El Pais, a Spanish newspaper, that the two had a conversation about his homosexuality and said he was told, "Juan Carlos, I don’t care about you being gay. God made you that way and loves you as you are and I don’t mind. The pope loves you as you are, you have to be happy with who you are.”

The Los Angeles Times reported that the Vatican did not confirm the pope’s comments given that it was a private conversation." more...

No one should be surprised the Obama administration spied on political opponents

This from Americans for Limited Government:

Printus LeBlanc

The New York Times finally admitted what many Republicans and President Donald Trump have been saying for almost a year, Trump’s 2016 campaign to become the President was spied on by the opposing party using government resources. It is not surprising President Barack Obama spied on Trump’s campaign, what is surprising is so many people are taken aback by what appears to have happened. After all, it’s the Chicago way.

If Liberals Were Animals, it Would be an Improvement

Selwyn Duke

If liberals were animals, if would be a marked improvement. For one thing, animals don’t lie.

Ever since President Trump characterized MS-13 gang members as "animals,” Democrats have been playing dumb (when they haven’t actually been dumb) for political gain. What started with some fake news outlets purposely misrepresenting Trump’s remarks and others sloppily parroting the deception, has degenerated into the comical: leftists trying to save face and gain votes by cynically claiming they’re offended that anyone would do violence to the principle of the dignity of all human persons. Why, Nancy Pelosi, a poo-bah of prenatal infanticide posing as a latter-day St. Thomas Aquinas, actually lectured us about how every person has a "divine spark.”

Planet Cools Half a Degree in Two Years _ Media Ignores

David Dickinson

Hey, speaking of destroying the planet, did you folks know that since November 8, 2016, the temperature of the planet has gone down half of a degree Celsius? Yes, President Trump has managed to turn around global warming, in spite of all the hot air being expended on multiple continents by Felonia von Pantsuit's year and a half-long Excuses Tour, and all of the hot air being expended each and every day on television opinion - excuse me, I meant news - hours.

Here
is a list of stories about global cooling that have been ignored by the mainstream media.

Real Russian collusion the Dems and MSM ignore

Paul Driessen

While Robert Mueller, Democrats and the "mainstream media” focus on President Trump’s, his family’s and his associates’ supposed collusion with Russia, they studiously ignore examples of actual collusion with Russia: not just the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and Clinton Family Foundation – but well documented cases involving cronies of Russian President Vladimir Putin financing and colluding with multiple US environmentalist organizations.

Those groups have a long history of attacking America’s energy production, pipeline, agricultural and other vital economic and security sectors. The financial and other support they have received in recent years from Russia makes it much easier for them to engage in these anti-USA activities. And yet, up to now, all too many on the liberal end of the US political spectrum have paid no attention to these disturbing developments, or the reasons behind them. delving into THAT Russian collusion would be an eye-opening service to America and the world.

Pastor confronts middle school assignment to declare Allah as only true god

Jack Kemp forwards this:


Pastor confronts West Va. middle school over student assignment to declare Allah as only true god


A Christian pastor confronted a West Virginia middle school this week after his daughter came home with an assignment that asked her seventh-grade class to "write their submission to Allah as their one true god in Arabic calligraphy.”

Specifically, students were asked to "practice calligraphy by copying the Arabic form of the Shahada by hand,” according to published reports. The Shahada refers to the "Islamic profession of faith that declares belief in one true God and Muhammad being a messenger of God.”

Read the rest at The Blaze.

A WORD FROM TIM:

Not only does this illustrate how the forces of darkness (aka liberals) worm their way into positions of authority everywhere, it also provides a terrible danger, because we either allow the children to be propagandized by these people or we take a stand, a stand that will later be used against Christians and Jews by atheists. See, they set it up so they win no matter what; either they force our kids to profess faith in Islam or they promote atheism and secular humanism.

It's utterly despicable.

Oh, by the way, here is a story about a New York City school holding a moment of silence for dead Hamas terrorists.  "Education" these days is pure indoctrination.

Rejoice O Jerusalem

Dana Mathewson

From Ben Shapiro's Daily Wire. This will give you something to cheer about! This is a wonderful article.

And remember all the politicians who promised to move our embassy to Jerusalem -- and did not.

A WORD FROM JACK KEMP:

'It was the dream of Mordechai Anielewicz, the secular leader of the Jewish resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto: "The dream of my life has risen to become fact. … Jewish armed resistance and revenge are facts. I have been a witness to the magnificent, heroic fighting of Jewish men in battle.”'
END QUOTE

Anielewicz was the commander of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising at only age 24. He died in the Uprising but that resistance lasted longer that France's resistance to the advance of the German Army.

In December 1943, kibbutz Yad Mordechai in Israel was renamed after him and had a monument erected in his memory.[16]

There is a statue of him at the kibbutz renamed in his honor which is located just north of Gaza. The kibbutz was attacked by the Egyptian Army in the 1948 Israeli War of Independence.

How to protect your router from Russian hackers

Dana Mathewson

This is from Kim Komando, who I trust.
A few weeks ago, the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) issued an alert about state-supported Russian hackers carrying out attacks against a large number of home routers in the U.S. These hackers are organized, motivated, and well-funded.

They’re not a bunch of misanthropic nerds sitting in basements. They’re getting paid to steal your digital credentials. These Russian hackers are reportedly using known weaknesses to infiltrate residential routers and utilize them to get a foothold on a network.

This is a big deal, so pay attention. When your router is compromised, a hacker can inflict damage, not just on the router itself, but on every connected device running on your network.

Let that sink in for a moment. Any device that is using your home internet is vulnerable.


Follow the links and it will lead you to a tester. You can trust Kim not to "set you up." I checked mine and I'm clean.

A note from Tim:

I think it's true. My brother Brian had to shell out $300 bucks because his router went Kaput. He didn't mention hacking, but it sounds very much like what happened to him.

ISIS Chief Who Ordered Burning Death of Pilot Captured

Timothy Birdnow

Looks like the ISIS monster who ordered the Jordanian pilot be burned to death in 20015 has been captured!

Let's hope he gets a painful execution, but given the way we have proceeded with this supposed war he'll probably be out on parole in two years.

Hat tip: Rerum-Novarum.

Island Cropping; Win Some, Lose Some in the Sea Level Rise Game

Timothy Birdnow

If sea levels are rising so dramatically, why are we not seeing disappearing atolls in the Pacific?

That is the big question and I've dealt with it going way back. If I may quote myself from my 2010 Canada Free Press article:

"Of course, there is one catch; your islands actually have to be getting smaller. Sea level rise is immaterial if the, uh, sea level isn’t rising. If you have the same amount of real estate as in bygone years your claim is pathetically slim.

Many of those small islands are actually growing! more...

The War of the Pretend Oppressed

Dana Mathewson

Ammo Grrrll hits it way, way out of the park!

Wham-O! See if you agree!

Gotta say she's my kind of Grrrll!

Here are a few choice paragraphs:

"In the long forgotten Victorian Era, one had to refer to a chair or piano "leg” as a "limb.” The word "leg” was so triggering to Victorian ladies that they would have to lie down on a fainting couch. Today’s "strong,” "independent” feminists have brought us full circle to where hearing "ladies’ lingerie” is an occasion for virtual fainting. And then A Grievously and Perpetually Offended Woman has to run right off and tattle to Big Daddy Executive Director. That’s one tough cookie of a feminist! In the event of trouble, I want nobody on my team who is rendered limp and "shaken” by the words "ladies’ lingerie.” Or by any mere words."

[...]

"I would add: you are a humorless, wretched, petty, vindictive twit, looking for an occasion for self-aggrandizement and a "leg up” in whatever airless space you occupy. You are nothing more than an adult-like version of the same prissy little grade school tattletales who told Teacher of petty infractions that occurred while she was out of the room. Your ilk were the reason I spent a lot of time clapping erasers and sitting in the hall. You were always girls – why was that? Boys could be many annoying things, but they were rarely tattletales."
