Islamists Hunting Paris Train Heroes?

Timothy Birdnow

One of the heroes who stopped the Paris train attack has been repeatedly stabbed in Sacramento.

Interesting; his buddy was quite possibly another target; he was supposed to be at Umpqua Community College on the day of the Mercer rampage. http://tbirdnow.mee.nu/was_the_oregon_community_college_shooting_an_attempted_isis_hit

Are these heroes being hunted down by Muslim radicals?

Ban Dose Guns? Yah, Mon!

Timothy Birdnow

Every time there is a shooting in a school or some other non-ghetto area the Left and their media lackeys immediately begin the drumbeat for gun control. This doesn't happen anywhere else in the world, we are told. Mass shootings are strictly an American thing, a biproduct of the firearm-drenched culture of the United States. We need "common sense gun restrictions" because, hey, it's the availability of guns that makes such crimes happen.

After the community college shooting in Oregon President Obama got mad, and declared he intended to politicize the tragedy, essentially dance on the graves of the murder victims. "By me", he said, "we have got to take those guns away now!"

So, people don't kill people, guns kill people. Rid America of the weapons and that pesky Second Amendment and all will be peachy!

Not so fast.

Jamaica has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world, and yet there was a massacre of a family by gunman. From the Jamaica Observer:

"HANOVER, Jamaica – Gunmen allegedly pounced on a family of 10 in Longwood, Hanover last night, killing six members before setting the nine-apartment board house ablaze.

Two teens and an elderly woman are reportedly dead while another teen and an elderly man are said to be in critical condition at hospital."

End excerpt.

How did this happen in a gun-free paradise? Jamaica confiscated guns in 1972. Here is a first hand account:

"Around 1972, the political situation in Jamaica had so seriously deteriorated that there were constant shootings and gun battles throughout the city of Kingston and in many of the outlying parishes (counties). In years past no one had even had to lock their doors, but now many people hardly dared venture out of their homes. This was especially true for white people, and even more especially for Americans, because of the real risk of being gunned down or kidnapped and held hostage by Jamaicans, who had become increasingly hostile towards whites and foreigners. My father took his life into his hands every morning simply driving to work. Going to the market or to do a simple errand was often a terrifying prospect. The open hatred and hostility which was directed at us seemed ready at any time to explode into violence, and indeed did so towards many people on many occasions, often with tragic or fatal results.

The Jamaican government decided that the only solution to this volatile situation was to declare martial law overnight, and to demand that all guns and bullets owned by anyone but the police and the military be turned into the police within 24 hours. The government decreed that anyone caught with even one bullet would be immediately, and without trial, incarcerated in what was essentially a barbed-wire enclosed concentration camp which had been speedily erected in the middle of Kingston. In true Orwellian fashion, the government referred to this camp as "the gun court."

My father and all of our American, Canadian, British and European friends, as well as middle class Jamaicans of all colors (locally referred to as "black," 'white," or "beige") knew that we were all natural targets of this kind of draconian government punishment. The relentless anti-American propaganda spewed forth by Michael Manley, Jamaica's admittedly pro-Castro Prime Minister, had resulted in the widespread hatred of Americans, British and Europeans by many Jamaicans. Racial hatred of whites and "beiges," as well as class hatred of anyone who appeared to have money or property, were rampant.

Consequently, we all dutifully and immediately disarmed ourselves, and handed our weapons in at the nearest police station. It was either that or be sent straight to the gun court. Even after we had disarmed ourselves, we lived in deathly fear that the cops, not known for their integrity, and well-known for their hatred of whites and Americans, would plant a gun or bullet on our property or persons.

So there we all were - government-disarmed, sitting-duck, law-abiding citizens and expatriates. Anyone can guess what happened next: the rampant and unfettered carnage began in earnest. Robberies, kidnappings, murders, burglaries, rapes - all committed by the vast populace of still-armed criminals. Doubtless the criminals were positively ecstatic that the government had been so helpful in creating all these juicy and utterly defenseless victims for their easy prey.

We've all heard the phrase, "When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns." I can personally confirm that this statement is absolutely and painfully true, because that is exactly how the Jamaican disarmament worked. At the time of the disarmament order, I was away at boarding school in the United States. However, I remember vividly coming home for the summer. I remember the muted but pervasive atmosphere of tension and terror which constantly permeated our household, affecting even our loyal black servants, who worked for and lived with us, and whom we took care of. (Practically every household in Jamaica, except the very poorest, had live-in servants. There was no welfare or public school in Jamaica, so middle-class families became completely responsible for the well-being of their servants, who were considered to be part of the family, including taking them to the doctor, and helping to educate their children.)

I remember lying awake in bed at night, clutching the handle of an ice-pick I had put under my pillow, and listening to the screaming of car-loads of Jamaican gangs going by our house, praying that they wouldn't pick our home to plunder. The favorite tactic was for a group of thugs to roar up to a house, pile out, batter down the door and rape, steal, kill, kidnap... whatever they felt like. They knew the inhabitants had been disarmed, and that they would be met with only fear and defenselessness. My pathetic ice-pick seemed incredibly puny, but it was all I could think of. Our family didn't even own a baseball bat. I remember lying awake thinking about how our beloved dogs were old and feeble, and that they could not protect us. And that I could not protect them either.

I can barely describe the abject terror and helplessness I felt as both a white American and as a young woman during that time. Jamaica was then about 90% black. Although I was (and still am) an American citizen, my family had lived in Kingston for almost 12 years when this situation occurred, and I considered Jamaica to be my real home. Many of my friends were Jamaican. My first serious boy-friend was Jamaican. For all its faults, I loved this beautiful, suffering island dearly, and I felt like a stranger when I was away at school in America, where I was always homesick for Jamaica.

When we had first moved to Jamaica in 1960, my sister and I (both blonde and obviously white) had been able to ride our horses up into the hills, and, whenever we encountered local Jamaicans, their salutation to us was open and friendly, as was ours to them. As things deteriorated into the reign of terror, and then the government instituted overnight citizen disarmament, when we ventured outside our home, we almost always encountered hate-filled stares and hostile hisses of, "Eh, white bitch! Eh, look 'ere, white bitch!" and other unprintable epithets."

[...]

"At least eleven friends and acquaintances of my family were raped, kidnapped, murdered or robbed within about a year after the disarmament, and I believe it is a miracle that we are all still alive. I am convinced that many of these people would not have been victims had they not been disarmed by the Jamaican government. It was tragically ironic that the government had sold this whole disarmament program to us with the promise that: "We're here to help you, and this is for your own good and safety."

Because of this horrid and indelible experience, and of my interest in and undying loyalty to the American Bill of Rights, I have made it my personal business to study the history of the Second Amendment. I have studied related topics, too, such as police responsibility to citizens. It is my belief that many people believe that disarmament is no big deal, because it is the job of the police to protect us. Particularly many women seem to believe this. The media and of government authorities continue to generate pervasive and corrosive propaganda aimed at creating a helpless and disarmed populace. I used to completely believe this propaganda, but I have learned the following realities:

1. The police have no legal duty to protect individual citizens, and cannot be held responsible if they fail to do so. Even if a citizen's 911 call gets through to the emergency center, the police can simply choose not to show up, and the citizen has no legal recourse against the police. The courts have repeatedly ruled on this. As the court wrote in Bowers v. DeVito, 686 F.2d 616 (7th Cir. 1982): "There is no constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered by criminals or madmen. It is monstrous if the state fails to protect its residents against such predators but does not violate the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, or, we suppose, any other provision of the Constitution. The Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: it tells the state to let the people alone; it does not require the federal government or the state to provide services, even so elementary a service as maintaining law and order." The U.S. Supreme Court, in MU 59 U.S. 396, ruled in a similar vein as far back as 1856.

2. The police carry guns primarily to defend themselves, not to protect us.

3. Because of items 1 and 2 above, we should all consider the police to be, essentially, historians. They show up after the crime has been committed and attempt to reconstruct and document the history of the crime. If the history is satisfactorily re-constructed, then the perpetrator is apprehended (if he can be found) and then (perhaps) prosecuted. This after-the-fact law enforcement does little good for the dead or wounded crime victims.

4. Women have a particular stake in preserving the right to bear arms. There is no way to describe the helplessness a woman feels when she is disarmed and made helpless by anyone. Add to that the rage she feels when the agency who is disarming her and leaving her at the mercy of rapists, murderers, goons and thugs, is a sanctimonious government telling her that it's "for her own good."

Although there are many serious issues in today's roiling political and social stew, I believe that preserving and restoring the Bill of Rights in general, and the Second Amendment in particular, is the most pivotal and basic issue to all Americans, and particularly female Americans, even if they don't yet know it. The consummate idiocy propounded by some folks (including some women) that the Second Amendment exists only to protect sportsmen's rights is particularly ridiculous relevant to women, most of whom don't hunt, and who care more about being able to get a decent hand-gun for self-protection than a hunting rifle to pursue deer or elk.

Anyone who thinks the Bill of Rights is either "out of date," "hokey" or "needs revising" - all of which I've heard from well-meaning but tragically ignorant and complacent Americans - should try living in a country which doesn't have one. I have been there and done that, and I don't want to go through it ever again - especially not in my own native nation. So I am dedicated to preventing today's government nanny from turning, as so often has occurred in history, into tomorrow's government despot."

End excerpts.

And in fact, as John Lott points out in this 2010 essay, murder and mayhem increased dramaticallly after Jamaica confiscated guns:

"Jamaica wasn't always the extremely violent country that it is today (see the figure here). Jamaica experienced large increases in murder rates since enacting a handgun bans in 1974. Since the gun ban, Jamaica’s murder rate has soared to become one of the highest in the world, currently at least double that of other Caribbean countries. Jamaica’s murder rate hasn’t sunk below 10 murders per 100,000 people since the gun ban went into effect.

Even before the recent rampage, Jamaica's murder rate was about six times higher than before the ban went into effect. Indeed, Jamaica's current murder rate is so high -- at about 60 per hundred thousand people -- that 30 additional deaths in one day will barely be noticeable: 30 deaths will only increase the murder rate from about 60 to 61"

End excerpt.

Indeed, I was in Jamaica back in 1993 and the big story on the news was a raid on an illicit gun factory, one pumping out thousands of weapons. Who buys illicit firearms? Criminals. The good people cannot get them legally.

Anyone who falls for the gun control argument is either terminally lazy or outright stupid.

Why did McCarthy do it?

Timothy Birdnow

Kevin McCarthy has resigned from the race for Speaker of the House of Representatives. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/rep-kevin-mccarthy-drops-house-speaker-race/story?id=34344098 McCarthy shot himself in the family jewels with imbecilic comments that suggested the purpose of the select committee on Benghazi was to damage the political fortunes of Hillary Clinton. The subsequent uproar forced McCarthy to run for the tall grass.

Many electrons and some actual ink has been spilled over the incredibly dunderheaded gaffe of John Boehner's heir apparent. McCarthy threw the Clinton campaign a lifeline, and the GOP has been thrown into disarray as a result. How could a seasoned politician such as McCarthy makes such a dunderheaded mistake? And how could the GOP have so grossly mishandled this situation after the fact?

Writing at American Thinker, Arnold Steinberg catalogues the many mistakes of the GOP in this affair. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/10/deconstructing_mccarthyism.html While Steinberg's list is inarguable, one must ask if this whole affair is a matter of a gaffe or is there method to the madness of McCarthy and the RINO wing?

This Benghazi business has been quite destructive to Mrs. Clinton's campaign, and the GOP insiders may be concerned about that very fact. It is an axiom among pundits and analysts that the GOP is afraid of Hillary. But there are outsiders - people like Rush Limbaugh - who point out that Hillary has huge negatives and that she really is neither popular nor especially adept. And the more we see of Frau Blucher the less the nation likes her. Remember the election of 2008; Obama walked in out of nowhere and simply took the nomination from her. He won because he could campaign as an outsider. This was a huge tip-off that Hillary is a weak candidate, and it may be the GOP insiders, while professing to be frightened of Mrs. Clinton, are secretly hoping to face her in the general election.

And it may be that Hillary is more in line with the beliefs of the GOP RINO wing than are other Democrats - or Republicans, for that matter. The RINO wing would rather see America burn than surrender power to "outsiders" in the GOP. They despise the Tea Party, hate Trump, and refuse to share power with anyone else who isn't in their personal country club. While speaking about a "big tent" they actually have a private room in Studio 54, and anyone who wants in must pass the bouncer line and then move through several other secured doorways. The "big tent" is merely for the votes that will cement the Elites in power.

They may be more comfortable with a Hillary Presidency than with a President Cruz. Or Trump. Or Fiorina or Carson. And the repercussions can be managed; if McCarthy is out the RINO wing will simply replace him with another.

Keeping her in the race but weak would be a logical move for them.

One must also wonder how much did personal pique enter into this? Boehner and McCarthy were good buddies, after all. Furthermore, McCarthy may well have sought to punish the Tea Party for taking Boehner's scalp. As Barack Obama would say "if they bring a knife we'll bring a gun" and that is truly the way of power politics. McCarthy couldn't afford NOT to send a shot across the bow of the right wing. That he was willing to take this risk now illustrates the power of the Establishment in the House of Representatives.

Finally, what is happening behind the scenes? We know that Valerie Jarrett has been leaking a good deal of the information detrimental to Hillary. http://nypost.com/2015/03/14/obama-adviser-behind-leak-of-hillary-clintons-e-mail-scandal/ Obama won every election prior to his Presidential runs by destroying his opponents through opposition research and scandal. Jarrett got this information from somewhere. Do we have any reason to believe that the Chicago political machine has anything less on any of the GOP? The Obama Administration is clearly trying to manipulate the next election, doubtlessly to keep one of their own in power. But remember, they do not want the GOP to retake power. The British used to employ a strategy in geopolitical affairs known as Balance of Power, where they played one rival against another. Bill Clinton called his policy Triangulation, but it was the same strategy; allow your enemies to exhaust themselves and then stroll to victory. Keeping Hillary weak but in the game is as important as is keeping the GOP down. One wonders if the Chicago Way doesn't have a hand in this. Many people have wondered about John Boehner's tough talk and spineless action, and it has been theorized that Boehner was compromised. Why not his good chum?

There could be other reasons for this step, but one must question if it was actually a gaffe. Granted, it has just cost him the Speakership. That may have been a miscalculation, or it may have never been something McCarthy wanted. No matter; the election for Speaker has been postponed, and it may be that John Boehner could wind up staying anyway - for the good of the Party, don't you know!

Maybe that was the whole point?

Tenured Ivy League Prof Calls Ben Carson a Raccoon (well, minus the Rac)

Jack Kemp forwards this:

Ivy League Professor on Ben Carson: "If Only There Was a Coon of the Year Award"
Katie Pavlich | Oct 08, 2015
Katie Pavlich

Tenured University of Pennsylvania Religious Studies Professor Anthea Butler, who has a history of making derogatory and racially fueled comments, is now under fire for suggesting Dr. Ben Carson deserves a "coon of the year award" for his support of flying the Confederate Flag on private property. She made the suggestion on Twitter last week. Campus Reform has the details:

"If only there was a ‘coon of the year’ award…” Professor Butler tweeted in response to another tweet linking to a Sports Illustrated article in which Carson was quoted defended the right of NASCAR fans to fly Confederate flags during races.

"Swastikas are a symbol of hate for some people too … and yet they still exist in our museums and places like that,” Carson observed during the event in North Carolina with NASCAR legend Richard Petty. "If it’s a majority of people in that area who want it to fly, I certainly wouldn't take it down,” he added, noting that NASCAR races are held on private property.

The word "coon” is an offensive term to slander Africans, deriving from the Portuguese word "barracoos,” which is a hut-like dwelling used to store slaves during auctions, according to Online Etymology.

In effect, then, Butler’s tweet insinuated that Carson is a metaphorical slave who belongs in a wooden shed.

Yesterday, Juan Williams took issue with Butler's comments during The Five:
In the past, Butler (again, a religious studies professor) has referred to God as a "white racist" who "stalks young black men with guns."
As of now, the University has no plans to reprimand Butler for her comments. You can bet if Butler was a white woman, she would have been fired immediately.

PEG Legs; Social Justice Pirates School Curriculum

A.J. Cameron

It is sad to see that people negatively impact our education system and generate  handsome incomes for doing so.

These individuals need to address their grievances to the puppet president for
his abandonment of education w/in the D. C. school system. Actually, while there are those who are pushing Common Core and charter schools w/o local control as a solution (a Hegelian Dialectic maneuver), I believe the D. C. school system is the goal for all children w/in the U. S. education system.

If this is the goal, won't apathetic suburban parents be aghast when they
realize they and their children have been targeted, too. Sadly, their apathy
will impact those who are engaged in the fight to defeat Conformity Core. We need divine intervention to save us from ourselves.

A.J.

divisive on education

A major national conference for teachers and school administrators
starting on Saturday, October 10, in Baltimore will focus exclusively
on race and racism, featuring workshops on "interrupting whiteness” in
American schools, the "dominance of White supremacy” in society,
"White privilege” enjoyed by Caucasian students, "white domination of
thought,” and how to "decenter whiteness.”

The conference, officially titled The National Summit for Courageous
Conversation 2015, is organized by the Pacific Educational Group
(PEG), a large and influential consulting firm hired by hundreds of
school districts nationwide — often under pressure from the federal
government — to address "racial gaps” in scholastic performance and
behavior problems in the classroom.

The program descriptions, as you can see, are composed almost entirely
of academic jargon which intentionally obfuscates the text’s meaning.
I’ve added occasional clarifications between excerpts, deconstructing
the jargon into plain language — though in most cases the true nature
of each workshop shines through the euphemistic terminology on its
own, and needs no illumination.

Groups such as PEG which offer their services to school districts
usually portray their programs as simply a way to boost the self-image
of black students, to hopefully improve their academic scores and
lessen disruptive behavior. And if PEG had kept its goal to nothing
more than that, then there would likely not be any controversy. But,
as this next workshop reveals, PEG has crossed way, way over the line
from boosting the esteem of black students to instead intentionally
tearing down the esteem of white students:


It Ain’t H1N1, But It’s Just as Deadly: The Negative Effects of White
Privilege for People of Color
Explore the realities of white privilege and the deep wounds that
many people of color have felt due to this ugly reality. Hear
historical perspectives and learn how the evolution of white privilege
has been parented by white supremacy, racism, and institutional racism
from the past to the present. Take a different look at white privilege
and consider how many people of color have been conditioned to believe
that they shouldn’t be afforded the privilege that white folks
receive, which gives white privilege the power to positively affect
many white people and negatively affect all people. Engage in this
challenging opportunity to examine yourself critically and to look at
the effects that white privilege has had on society and communities of
color.
Its practices are based on an academic discipline called "Critical
Race Theory,” which is so commonplace in modern academia as to no
longer even be controversial. But outside a university environment,
few people have even heard of it — and the few that have are usually
shocked and outraged. The phrase "Critical Race Theory,” for all its
multi-syllabic high-mindedness, is nothing more than a
faux-intellectual way of saying "Everything — and we mean everything —
is white people’s fault.”

Much of Critical Race Theory revolves around the concept of
"whiteness,” which is not simply a skin color or racial identification
but rather a state of moral turpitude: To have "whiteness” means that
you personally share blame for all of society’s ills. It doesn’t
matter whether or not you think prejudiced thoughts or treat anyone
badly; it doesn’t matter whether or not your ancestors owned slaves or
instead were abolitionists fighting to free slaves; it doesn’t matter
whether or not your ancestors immigrated to the United Sates in the
20th century long after slavery was outlawed; it doesn’t matter
whether you’re left-wing or right-wing or apolitical; what matters is
that all of American society is inherently racist and favors white
people, so that if you "look white,” you benefit from a racist system,
and you are therefore part of that system, and therefore racist, and
therefore (to peel away the euphemisms) evil. All "Caucasian” or
pale-skinned people are genetically cursed with "whiteness,” which
they cannot escape or disown, but people of other skin colors and
ethnicities can also possess whiteness if they conform to "white
norms” and refuse to embrace anti-whiteness activism.

The average person might see this entire worldview as shockingly
racist, but Critical Race Theory has that angle covered too: Racism,
according to the theory, is prejudice+power; and since (according to
the theory) black people have no power in society, by definition they
can’t be racist. The inverse of the stigma of whiteness is therefore
also true: if you lack whiteness, you are immune from criticism or
condemnation.

Until recently Critical Race Theory has been just that — a "theory”
safely quarantined away from the real world in the pages of scholarly
journals and the hallways of Ethnic Studies departments. But Pacific
Educational Group is transforming Critical Race Theory into Critical
Race Practice. They’re implementing in real-world settings (K-12
classrooms) the notions that until now were discussed only
hypothetically:


Creating Culturally Relevant Classrooms by Removing the Sand and
Interrupting Whiteness
Join members of the CARE team from Portland DART School and share
their journey to establish Culturally Relevant Classrooms using the
Courageous Conversation protocol as a tool for interrupting
white-normed ways of teaching and learning. Hear how DART has created
classroom climates where dialogue opens doors to multiple
perspectives, increases awareness of racial norms, decenters
whiteness, empowers students to question, and improves engagement of
all students. Participate in personal reflection, small and large
group discussions, and a fun game of Courageous Conversation
Vocabulary BINGO! Take home resources and examples of outcomes.

This exposes Hillary -- and the Democrats -- pretty well

Dana Mathewson

This is what has become of the U.S. One party operates like this -- or at least pushes for president a candidate who operates like this and has the chance to make it all the way. Bad enough we have a president acting like a king, but here we have a writer arguing we need another one? That Democrats won't be able to elect anyone who DOESN'T operate like one?

I think this should be sent to every Democrat we know, with the question "Do you support this, and if you do, how can you still call yourself an American?"

Many people say "Oh, the Republicans are just as bad." Tell me the last time you saw the Republicans behaving like this, and if you say "Richard Nixon" I'll respond with "Give me somebody in the current generation, and give me somebody operating this way who is being pushed as the party's front-runner for president." Nixon, if you need the reminder, merely protected his operatives who pulled Watergate -- after he was in power.

China, Korea Targeted Hillary's Server

What Really Drives Obama's Destructive Mideast Policy?

Selwyn Duke

It’s not a stretch to say that what ex-president Jimmy Carter did for Iran, Barack Obama is doing for the whole Middle East and beyond. Islamic State is on the move; jihadism in general is raging and all the rage; and with the Iran deal, the man who helped enable the "Arab Spring” may give us a nuclear winter.

A Mideast policy with such results has befuddled many. Why did Obama help overthrow Muammar Gaddafi and hurl Libya into turmoil? Why did he throw Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak under the bus? And why, as radio host Michael Savage asked late last week, does he have such a "vendetta” against Syria’s Bashar al-Assad?

It’s not enough to say that the Gaddafis and Assads of the world are bad men; the devil you know is often better than the devil you don’t know, and this certainly appears the case when turmoil and jihadists are the apparent alternatives to these strongmen’s rule. And Iran is governed by bad men, but Obama showed no interest in supporting dissidents there.

When analyzing the above, credulous liberals might say the president is merely interested in supporting "democracy,” some conservatives might explain it by way of incompetence, while yet others may aver that Muslim sympathies impel him to support jihadist causes. But the truth is perhaps a bit more nuanced, so let me suggest a different theory.

When discerning a person’s motivations, you must first consider what he is. Obama is a hardcore leftist, marinated in Marxism from his youth, raised by a leftist mother and grandparents and mentored by card-carrying Communist Party USA member Frank Marshall Davis. He also belonged to the socialist New Party in 1990s Chicago and, according to a 2007 study, owned the Senate’s most left-wing voting record; this means he was ahead of even that body’s only avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders (who was number two).

Now, one thing we know about hardcore leftists is that they generally consider religion the "opiate of the masses.” This brings us to the idea, embraced by 29 percent of Americans and 43 percent of Republicans, that Obama is a Muslim. Question: is it realistic to think that Obama truly believes in God and that God’s name is Allah? Does his support for the homosexual agenda (including faux marriage), women in combat and "transgenders” in the military reflect Sharia?

The reality? Obama is a de facto atheist. He deifies himself more than anyone else. But there’s an important distinction here almost universally missed by liberals and conservatives: Obama isn’t religiously Muslim.

But there’s every indication he’s culturally Muslim.

Having lived in the Islamic country of Indonesia between the ages of 6 and 10 with a Muslim stepfather, it’s likely that Obama’s earliest memories are of life in a Muslim culture. He also has characterized the Muslim call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset” (and recites it with an authentic accent) and has avoided Christian events while trumpeting his Muslim heritage. Yet however much this influences his thinking, it pales in comparison to something else that characterizes him and virtually all leftists.

Hatred for the West.

In Obama’s narrow universe, the West is the cause of most evil in the world. The West is oppressive, destructive and poisons everything it touches. And for justice to prevail, Western institutions and influence must be quashed.

Now consider the Middle East’s modern history. Syria’s current borders were created by the West after the fall of the Ottomans, and the CIA covertly backed the Arab world’s first military coup in that nation in 1949. Italy seized Libya from the Ottoman Empire in the Italo-Turkish War in 1911-12; in fact, the name "Libya” itself was adopted by Italy in 1934 during its colonization of the region and originated with the ancient Greeks (the birthplace of Western civilization), who used it to describe all of North Africa apart from Egypt. As for Egypt, it was part of the Cold War geopolitical tussle, first allied with the Soviet Union and then switching allegiance to the U.S. under President Anwar Sadat. Also note that the Assad dynasty has long been supported by — and Gaddafi was a longtime ally of — the Soviet Union/Russia.

But wouldn’t a leftist such as Obama welcome Soviet influence? First, the leftist line was that the Soviets’ Cold War activities were designed mainly to counterbalance Western imperialism — the Soviets wouldn’t have been in the Middle East if we weren’t. More significantly with Obama, however, I believe that in one sense he doesn’t distinguish between the West and Russia, in that he views them both as the oppressive "white world” (especially since the U.S.S.R. is no more).

You no doubt see the point. The modern Middle East is largely a Western construct, with Western-drawn borders and Western-facilitated strongmen. Obama sees Western influence and creations as the bane of humanity.

Ergo, not only is the enemy of my ideological enemy my friend, but, whatever the "Arab Street” may be, it can’t be worse than the world’s most evil force: the West.

This also helps shed light on Obama’s apparent antipathy for Israel, which he would also view as a Western invention, and his refusal to support dissidents in Iran. Remember that the Iranian theocracy, born in the Islamic Revolution of 1979, already represents the overthrow of the Western Mideast order.

This theory certainly explains Obama’s actions. No, it would not be a rational motivation, but much of what animates man is irrational. This is especially true of leftists, who, disbelieving in and disconnected from Truth, are driven by emotional attachment to misbegotten ideas.

Nor would Obama likely heed cooler heads’ counsel. He lives in the echo chamber of his own mind, considering others’ opinions superfluous; he’s the very antithesis of the saying "Every man is my superior in that I may learn from him.” Note that he arrogantly stated in 2007 not only that he’d be a better political director than his political director, but also "I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. [And] I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors.” Even more telling is a story related by economist and gun-rights advocate Dr. John Lott on Mark Levin’s radio show last Friday about the time when he and Obama were both in the University of Chicago’s employ. Obama didn’t attend the gatherings at which the staff exchanged ideas, except once, when he asked a fairly unintelligible question. Lott then saw Obama after the event and, trying to make friends and conversation, said (I’m paraphrasing), "You know, your question was interesting, but I think more people would have understood it if….” Lott never got to finish.

Because Obama, cold as ice, just turned his back.

And Obama long ago turned his back on reality and on the civilization that has given him everything. He hates the world’s Western-imposed order so much that he’s propelling the world toward disorder. And that’s the tragic result when you don’t realize that hatred is not a strategy.

It’s not a stretch to say that what ex-president Jimmy Carter did for Iran, Barack Obama is doing for the whole Middle East and beyond. Islamic State is on the move; jihadism in general is raging and all the rage; and with the Iran deal, the man who helped enable the "Arab Spring” may give us a nuclear winter.

A Mideast policy with such results has befuddled many. Why did Obama help overthrow Muammar Gaddafi and hurl Libya into turmoil? Why did he throw Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak under the bus? And why, as radio host Michael Savage asked late last week, does he have such a "vendetta” against Syria’s Bashar al-Assad?

It’s not enough to say that the Gaddafis and Assads of the world are bad men; the devil you know is often better than the devil you don’t know, and this certainly appears the case when turmoil and jihadists are the apparent alternatives to these strongmen’s rule. And Iran is governed by bad men, but Obama showed no interest in supporting dissidents there.

When analyzing the above, credulous liberals might say the president is merely interested in supporting "democracy,” some conservatives might explain it by way of incompetence, while yet others may aver that Muslim sympathies impel him to support jihadist causes. But the truth is perhaps a bit more nuanced, so let me suggest a different theory.

When discerning a person’s motivations, you must first consider what he is. Obama is a hardcore leftist, marinated in Marxism from his youth, raised by a leftist mother and grandparents and mentored by card-carrying Communist Party USA member Frank Marshall Davis. He also belonged to the socialist New Party in 1990s Chicago and, according to a 2007 study, owned the Senate’s most left-wing voting record; this means he was ahead of even that body’s only avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders (who was number two).

Now, one thing we know about hardcore leftists is that they generally consider religion the "opiate of the masses.” This brings us to the idea, embraced by 29 percent of Americans and 43 percent of Republicans, that Obama is a Muslim. Question: is it realistic to think that Obama truly believes in God and that God’s name is Allah? Does his support for the homosexual agenda (including faux marriage), women in combat and "transgenders” in the military reflect Sharia?

The reality? Obama is a de facto atheist. He deifies himself more than anyone else. But there’s an important distinction here almost universally missed by liberals and conservatives: Obama isn’t religiously Muslim.

But there’s every indication he’s culturally Muslim.

Having lived in the Islamic country of Indonesia between the ages of 6 and 10 with a Muslim stepfather, it’s likely that Obama’s earliest memories are of life in a Muslim culture. He also has characterized the Muslim call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset” (and recites it with an authentic accent) and has avoided Christian events while trumpeting his Muslim heritage. Yet however much this influences his thinking, it pales in comparison to something else that characterizes him and virtually all leftists.

Ingratitude, Thugs, and the Gay Community

Timothy Birdnow

A St. Louis coffee shop is imbibing some bitter brew over cups it gave to customers with FTP written on them. For those who can't figure it out, FTP means F@## the Police.

Gateway Pundit is percolating the news over this incident:

"A radical St. Louis coffee shop is getting negative publicity over the initials ‘FTP’ being written on coffee cups. FTP stands for F*** the Police. Mokabe’s Coffeehouse made a snarky announcement on Twitter claiming it has placed an employee on ‘paid leave’ over the matter"

[...]

"The FTP message first came to the public’s attention via a tweet by St. Louis Black Lives Matter activist "KayRay@RE_invent_ED” on Twitter who posted a photo on Tuesday.

https://twitter.com/RE_invent_ED/status/651516574617071616

"When you realize why bae is bae @jcos24 and why @MoKaBes is your favorite place. FTP on all to-go orders”

A man claiming to be the suspended employee posted about it on Twitter.

Starting my paid leave after work tonight. To say I am contrite would do no justice… Just like the police https://t.co/pdIN9XP5w9

— Goku Super Baeyan (@jcos24) October 7, 2015

"Starting my paid leave after work tonight. To say I am contrite would do no justice… Just like the police”

Last November Mokabe’s caused controversy by announcing it would open its door and serve as a ‘safe space’ for anti-police protesters when the grand jury decision was announced in the Officer Darren Wilson-Michael Brown case according to a report by the Riverfront Times."

End excerpts.

Mokabees is a coffee shop in the city of St. Louis. Sited on the northern point of the trendy South Grand strip, this establishment is known as a homosexual hangout, catering to the gay community that settled in the Tower Grove South neighborhood. Tower Grove is the community just south of Tower Grove Park; to the north is the Shaw neighborhood, where the Black Lives Matter crowd rioted after the shooting death of the criminal Vonderrit Myers Jr. Myers was shot while threatening police with a firearm in the Shaw neighborhood, and the thugs who had been rioting in Ferguson over the death of Mike Brown moved their operations to Shaw, closing Grand Avenue for a time and invading the campus of St. Louis University (where they camped out for weeks thanks to a sympathetic SLU president). Myers was unquestionably guilty in this incident, and had a massive criminal record to back it up.

My question is, why is the gay community throwing in with the Black Lives Matter crowd? Why do they say "F#%% the police" when they themselves are so vulnerable to attack from bigots, according to their own claims? The gay community has considerable wealth to protect, and criminals should be a great concern to them. Also, there is considerable animus in the black community toward gay people. And yet, here we have what I am fairly sure is a gay employee throwing in with the rioters and looters. It makes no sense.

Oh, I understand the temptation to stand with an underdog if you see yourself as an underdog, but would Mokabes support a movement by Nazis or by Ku Klux Klansmen? No. It seems their sympathy for hateful radicals flows in the direction of politically correct hate-filled radicals. They are all on board with black thugs and criminals, and seem to hate the very people who will come to their aid if an anti-homosexual bigot should attack them.

This is illustrative of an important point; being "authentically gay" does not mean being attracted to and even having relations with someone of the same sex. It is about adopting a worldview and lifestyle that is essentially aimed at revolution and the destruction of the current social and moral order.

Now, there are plenty of gay people who are not revolutionaries in this sense, but they are marginalized by the core group. To be gay requires not just homosexual urges or even a lifestyle that is built around your sexual preferences but the acceptance of a radical political philosophy, one deeply rooted in socialistic and nihilistic principles. Gay culture defines your beliefs.

This is why so many people who were conservative at one point turn into liberals after they come out. The most glaring example is David Brock, the former reporter for the American Spectator who now runs the leftist attack site Media Matters. Brock came out and was not rejected, but his book "Hillary's Choice" in which Brock gushed about the diva Hillary Clinton found a soft market and Brock immediately turned against his compadres. Now, this might just have been a character flaw in Brock, but we see it with other people as well. Take Andrew Sullivan, for instance. Sullivan knows liberalism is stupid, and yet he often sounds the trumpet, and that is precisely because of his homosexuality.

There are good gay conservatives, make no mistake. But there is enormous pressure to conform in the gay community and, as in all such things, gay people feel vulnerable and isolated, especially when they first come out. They seek support, and it is given, but there is a cost that the gay community seems to demand.

So the gay community supports "Black Lives Matter" and disdain the police despite having more to lose to crime. According to CNN money:

"Respondents not only reported significantly higher annual incomes -- $61,500 compared with the national median of $50,054 -- but they also carried about $4,000 less in debt than the average American and had $6,000 more in household savings. They were even slightly more likely to have jobs in the first place, with an unemployment rate of 7% versus the national rate of 7.9%, Prudential found."

End excerpt.

And black on gay violence is epidemic. See these two articles by Colin Flaherty.
http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/perfect-storm-of-black-violence-on-gays/#!
http://whitegirlbleedalot.com/black-gay-violence-silent-epidemic/

So why hate on the police? I've never heard of a case where cops raped or beat a gay person. But I have heard of cases - many of them - where cops came to protect such individuals.

Was this the case with Mokabes? I can't say for sure, but it's clear they sympathize with the rioters and hate the cops, who offer this establishment their protection. Mokabees would be robbed out of existence if the police stepped aside.

Mokabees should perhaps consider that before they thumb their protectors in the eye.

Extreme Weather Events and Insurance

Timothy Birdnow

One of the claims made by the Gang Green, the Global Warming hysterics, is that volatile weather caused by planetary warming will bankrupt the insurance companies. Not so, according to a new paper. Bishop Hill has the story:

http://www.bishop-hill.net/blog/2015/10/7/weather-extremes-dont-harm-insurance-companies.html/

With "Mystic" Mark Carney telling anyone who crosses his palm with silver (or, indeed, anyone who crosses his path) that the insurance industry is going to be sunk by climate change, it's interesting to see what the empirical evidence has to say on the subject. By happy coincidence, Ross McKitrick has just published a paper on just this subject. Here's what he says about it on his website.

Bin Hu and I have just published a study looking at how climate variations, in particular indicators of extreme weather, have historically affected the share prices of major insurance firms. The insurance industry has raised the concern that climate change poses a financial risk due to higher payouts for weather-related disasters. However, if extreme weather is increasing, presumably that means they have an opportunity to sell more insurance products as well, which may increase profitability. In our paper we examined historical data on a portfolio of insurance firms and estimate a three-factor model augmented with climate indicators. Short-run deviations in measures of climate extremes are associated with increased profitability for insurance firms. Overall we find that past climatic variations have not had a negative effect on the profitability of the insurance industry.

End excerpt.

Unfortunately they do not link to the McKittrick blogpost itself, but I suppose it doesn't matter.

It could equally be argued that bad weather is a boon to the insurance industry; it forces more people to seek coverage, and allows for price increases that would not be possible in good times. Naturally, the insurance industry is heavily regulated and will find it difficult to raise rates during good times. A catastrphe' or two is a wonderful excuse to get more money.

Here in Missouri we had something comparable; flooding and storms led to a number of power outages, and the Monopoly that is known as Ameren UE immediately went to the Public Service Commission with a rate hike proposal. It was defeated because the public was angry (they lost service and then were expected to swallow a rate increase) but in the end I believe the electric company got their increase. And what did they do? They began a campaign to get people to use less, to -ostensibly because that would not overload the infrastructure when lines were down, and then went to the PSC on that basis. They claimed that they were losing money because people were using less electricity!

Granted, the insurance companies are not monopolies exactly, and in that regard are unlike the utilities, but they work in similar fashion. As Rahm Emmanuel said "never let a good crisis go to waste". It works in politics, and it works in this instance as well. A bit of roil in the weather is a good thing from the perspective of an insurance company.

As commenter Mike Jackson pointed out in the message thread:

Overall we find that past climatic variations have not had a negative effect on the profitability of the insurance industry.

Oyez! Oyez!! Bears shit in woods! Pope a Catholic! Read all about it!!!
The day an insurance company doesn't make money out of disasters I shall be looking for the Second Coming!
The problem with Carney is the same as with Cameron — got a green fanatic for a wife.

Trade Traitors

A.J. Cameron

This is worth reading.

Notice that 'Mr. Conservative', Paul Ryan, was instrumental in ramming TPA through, and presidential candidate, Marco Rubio, supported TPA, en route to wanting to push TPP across the goal line.

TPP is another horror story, in line with Dodd-Frank, ObamaCare, NDAA, etc. Money and power have corrupted, possibly, irreversibly, ‎the 'business as usual' inside the District of Corruption.

Rubio lied about amnesty, and has attempted to do a John Kerry on the issue. Even if someone wants to give him the benefit of the doubt on amnesty, his actions on TPA and TPP should be enough to spank him from serious consideration as the next puppet president. He's smart and he's ambitious, and, in D. C., this means he'll give up his morals and ethics to move up the ladder, just as Ryan has done. What a sad state of affairs!

A. J.

"GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is hammering President Barack Obama, his administration and Congress for completely failing the American worker when it comes to trade policy—whacking the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact with 12 Pacific Rim nations that the Obama just finalized in Atlanta as a deal that jeopardizes U.S. jobs."

Was the Oregon Community College Shooting an Attempted ISIS Hit?

Timothy Birdnow

Was the massacre at Umpqua Community College an attempt to murder Alek Skarlatos, the Christian AmericaN HERO WHO Stopped the Paris train shooting?


"Skarlatos has publicly acknowledged that he is currently a student at Umpqua, near Roseburg, Ore., and that he was supposed to be attending classes there on Thursday when Harper-Mercer went on a bloody rampage.

More specifically, Skarlatos said he was supposed to be present that day in Snyder Hall, the same building where Harper-Mercer carried out his massacre.

As USA Today reports

In a taped interview with Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday, Skarlatos said he was supposed to be in the building where Thursday's shooting took place.
"I had classes in Snyder Hall," said Skarlatos. "It's a fairly small community college, the town in general, everybody knows each other. So with that many deceased, I mean everybody's going to know at least one person." [...]

"I would have been there today if I didn't agree to do this show," he said. "I had classes picked out and everything."

As a famous American and Christian who prevented what could have been a high-casualty terrorist attack in France -- one of the few Western nations that over the objections of President Obama is actually trying to do something about the Islamist peril -- Skarlatos would have been an attractive target for Islamists.

Because America and much of the world holds Skarlatos up as a symbol of heroic Western resolve to defeat Islamism, those who support Muslim expansionism view him as an enemy. There are very few people on the planet who would be a more valuable target than Skarlatos"

End excerpt.

Very intriguing. It is important to note ISIS claimed credit, although there was nothing from the shooter to indicate he was working with them.

Promoting Pedophilia at Salon

Jack Kemp


Now Salon.com finds a supposedly self-righteous "non-practicing" pedophile - who is practicing and Salon.com wants to normalize, mainstream his behavior.

Jack

http://louderwithcrowder.com/salon-com-pedophile-calls-me-out-but-now-ive-dug-into-his-past/

Salon.com Pedophile Calls Me Out! But Now I’ve Dug Into His Past…

PedophileDarkBackgroundPicture
Well,Todd Nickerson the pedophilehas responded to the "right wing vile” backlash he got for coming out to the world as someone who’s sexually attracted to children. Sorry I’m not sorry. If you’re sexually attracted to children, you’rea sick bastard. And not one for whom I have much, shall we say "tolerance”?
He called me out by name..ish:
Then there’s Alex Crowder’s lunacy by way of Alex Jones:No, Salon.com, I Don’t Need to ‘Understand’ the Plight of Pedophiles. Again, the implication in the very title is that somehow kids are protected by willful ignorance. What reality does Crowder live in where things are made better by refusing to understand them? Never mind that his solution to sex offenders is to shoot them in the head, which goes beyond even the Old Testament law of an eye for an eye and warrants a comparison to the Nazis (who did execute sex offenders—not to mention the disabled—alongside gays and Jews); his solution to even confessing the attraction is exile from society. As if I haven’t already largely exiled myself. Seriously, ask my friends and family; I’m a notorious recluse who only ventures into public when absolutely necessary.
Firstly, it’sStevenCrowder. If you’re going to insult me, do it properly. Secondly, I think Paul Joseph Watson posted the article at InfoWars, which I understand to be run by Alex Jones. I have no actual affiliation. Okay? Okay. Thirdly, I find it hilarious that thisPEDOPHILEis looking down his nose at a filthy "right winger” like me. This tells youeverything you need to know about the left. Being Conservative is literally viewed as more offensive than the fondling of children (allegedly). And comparing himself to the helpless Jews of Nazi Germany? Talk about a victim complex. You know who’s more helpless/victimized than pedophiles? The kids they rape, en masse. Crazy, I know!
Fourthly, and most importantly, Todd here is actually wrong about my assertion. Itotally understandpedophiles. That’s why I advocated they be shot. See? But again, context matters. I never said that anyone with pedophile-like thoughts should be shot.What I said was…
I still have a steadfast rule: touch a kid sexually and you deserve a bullet.
And I won’t walk that back. I stand by it. Crazily enough, it seems that "Todd” may have very well done this himself. Yep, I’ve done some research.Behold the beauty of the internet:
Cropped1
Cropped2
Cropped3
Cropped4
Allow me to present some more from hismessage board posts here.(special thanks toReginald Harperwho assisted in finding these posts)
Board1
Board2
 
I particularly like the one where he calls critics of pedophiles "bigots.” Right below the post where he admits toTOUCHING A LITTLE GIRL!
*UPDATE and this may be a smoking gun here. In theSalon.comarticle, Todd wrote
"For better or worse—mostly worse—we have this sexuality, and unlike with most sexualities, there is no ethical way we can fully actualize our sexual longings. Our desires and feelings, if we are to remain upright, are doomed from the outset. "
That’s odd… especially when contrasted with what he himself, wrote right here onthis message board.
SmokingGun
More importantly, yes, he is still a twisted bag of human fecal-matter. You can read more about this research, including prior screen-names, claims and quoteshere(WARNING: PORNOGRAPHIC MATERIAL AT LINK).
Here’s the crazy thing, in my original article, I actually never advocated the execution of men with pedophile-like thoughts. I advocated that they be removed from society so that they can no longercan harm children.
Once you start sexualizing children, you’ve crossed that point.I’m sure some of you pedophiles have had some really tough breaks in life too. That’s sad. I don’t care. Once you become a threat to our kids (and yes, any sexual attraction to a 10 year old is to be seen as a threat), you are no longer welcome in society. Period. Gone. Done. No talking. No understanding. You’re out.
The only counseling session you get is with a cocked hammer and a three second count-down giving you a headstart to flee the village.
Again, I 100% stand by my position. I’ll walk it back precisely zero. Our duty is to protect our children first. Helping pedophiles feel better about themselves appears waaaaaaaay further down the list. Like, a billion spots lower. It’s not even a cameo at that point. But I understand we can’t execute somebody for thoughts. Here’s what’s nuts… this Todd guy seems to be guilty ofmorethan just thoughts. Even worse, he seems to (allegedly) have a past of of advocating for "pro-contact” pedophilia.
A guy like that, yes, deserves to be punished severely. I have no doubt if it were my daughter he’d fondled, I’d want him executed. Sound harsh? Do any parents out there feel any differently?
Finally, my issues is not as much with this sick, hobbling bag of excrement as it is withSalon.com. Why are they so hell-bent on normalizing pedophilia? This is the second time they’ve given a pedophile a platform to sell his sob story. DoesSalon.comKNOW that Todd may be an active, pro-contact pedophile? Shouldn’t they launch an investigation? I mean, this is criminal. And not like "oh he called me a tranny” hate-speech, criminal, butreallycriminal.
Final note: want to know just how far leftist, situational-ethics have taken us? Well, this same pedophile complained when Jimmy Kimmel pulled a Halloween prank on his show that made a couple kids cry.
PedophileKimmel
 
I know, I know. You just can’t make this stuff up. Pranking is worse than raping kids. The irony’s so rich, it’ll give you gout.

Oregon Shooter's Mother Discussed Guns

Dana MathewsonNow,

Hmmm... She sounds like my kind of woman, but not my kind of mother -- at least if her kid is nutsy! And not only is he, but she doesn't seem to know it.
