“Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country

Timothy Birdnow

Here is a very important essay discussing a comment by Tucker Carlson about the grave dangers of immigration - especially Muslim immigration.

From the Conservative HQ article:

"Omar isn’t disappointed in America. She’s enraged by it,” he continued. "That should worry you, and not just because Omar is a sitting member of Congress. Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.”

Hijra, or jihad by emigration, is a fundamental tenet of Islam harkening back to the earliest days of Mohammed’s war to establish hegemony over the cities of southwest Arabia. The first Hijra was the flight of Mohammed from Mecca to the largely Jewish city of Yathrib, now the completely Muslim city of Medina.

While the story of how Yathrib came to be Medina is too long to recount here, suffice it to say that by fleeing the city of Mecca, where they appeared to be in danger of being eliminated, and appearing at Yathrib as refugees, Mohammed and his small band of adherents were able to reform the Arab Muslim clans, gain new adherents and replace the population and leadership of Yathrib with the Muslims who became the army necessary to reclaim Mecca and eventually spread Islam throughout the world.

Sound familiar? It should, because Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Andre Carson are the first wave of the conquering army’s infiltration of our government.

And they were welcomed into Congress, as thousands of anti-American "refugees” were welcomed into America by Paul Ryan, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Although Rep. Omar responded to his commentary by calling him a "racist fool," Tucker Carlson is right.

And if Tucker Carlson is right, it is worthwhile asking who is responsible for this civilization-level disaster?

As with so many of the other disasters our country has faced in the past three decades this is a politician-made disaster, and an entirely predictable one to anyone who is paying attention to the effects of mass immigration of Muslims, among whom anti-constitutional liberty views are the cultural norm.

In no particular order of culpability, we can and should hold former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama responsible for introducing this poison into our society.

In a rational world the dangerous policy of allowing mass migration from Muslim countries that is intended to fundamentally transform America by importing jihad into our country would be stopped cold by a Republican majority in Congress.

But this is not a rational world, this is a world run by the personal whim of arrogant Washington insiders, chief among them being former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

Ryan and Obama made increasing Muslim immigration to America their special project and steadfastly fought any attempts by conservatives to slow or stop what a large majority of Americans believed was an existential threat to constitutional liberty.

Mitt Muffs it Again!

Timothy Birdnow

Oops he did it again! Mitt Romney both manages ton}}%3Athid.21392801120%3A306061129499414%3A2%3A0%3A1564642799%3A3442545476562284343&__tn__=*W-R#footer_action_list] mischaracterize what Trump said and pours abuse on him at the same time.

The president’s recent comments were destructive, demeaning, and disunifying. The President of the United States has a unique and noble calling to unite the American people—of all different races, colors, and national origins. In that respect, the president failed badly. People can disagree over politics and policy, but telling American citizens to go back to where they came from is over the line.

I don't suppose Mitt realizes that Ilhan Omar is an immigrant to this country. Yes, she is a citizen, but so what? She CHOSE to come here, and was given refuge from her native Somalia, yet now she attacks the country that graciously protected her and cheers on our enemies while serving in government.

By the way, Omar married her brother to get into the U.S.; that alone should disqualify her from holding office, indeed, from citizenship.

Second, Trump never said anything about race or much of anything else. He criticized people who come here and then attack our country. He echoes exactly what most Americans believe. Sadly, Mitt Romney doesn't know any real Americans; he has spent his whole life with the elites, with a silver spoon in his mouth.

It''s well past time Mr. Romney go away.

BTW Trump was responding to Omar's speech at the Netroots conference where she stated:

"We export American exceptionalism,” Omar said. "The Great America. The land of liberty and justice. That is, you know, you ask anybody in, walking on the side of the street somewhere in the middle of the world, they will tell you America the Great.

"But we don’t live those values here,”

Trump replied:

So interesting to see "Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

Illinois Drowning

Timothy Birdnow

Illinois isn't just in ruins at the State level; the Democrats have run municipalities into economic ruin as well.

According to this article

With $196 million in assets and $326 million in liabilities, according to its Dec. 31, 2018 financial statement, Bridgeview is technically insolvent.

That it has not filed for bankruptcy, and instead is able to continue borrowing and borrowing to make ends meet is a function of Illinois’ political predicament.

Municipalities are prohibited from filing for bankruptcy without permission from the Illinois legislature. And this one, controlled by Chicago Democrats who would rather see property taxes rise and home values fall than be required to restrain government spending, isn’t granting it.

The option of running out of money, versus continuing to borrow more to fund structural deficits or underperforming ventures like Landek’s Bridgeview stadium, is one House Speaker Michael J. Madigan (D-Chicago) knows would weaken the negotiating positions of his party allies, namely public employee unions.

Get that? This village is bankrupt but Mike Madigan won't allow them to go into bankruptcy because it would hurt his public sector union thug friends. So what will happen? In the end it will wind up becoming a Federal bailout.

Bridgeview may be an outlier, but I'll bet it isn't much of one. Illinois is a state with the philosophy "eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow you die". They are unconcerned about the looming catastrophe, on the simple theory that somebody else can pay for it. Oh, and they think the average joe is just going to keep ponying up. But it doesn't work that way, and Illinois is losing people.

The state should be dissolved and segmented to other states.
 
Hat tip; Warner Todd Houston.

Can this be? Dear Lord, Make it So!

Dana Mathewson

David P. Goldman, writing under the nom de plume of Spengler, has shone light upon the Middle East for years. I about fell out of my chair when I saw this article on PJMedia.


The Palestinian Problem Is Dying of Natural Causes




"West Bank grows calmer as pocketbook issues take priority of protests" is the headline of a New York Times story today. It seems that the Palestinian jihadists of the old intifadas are more concerned about making a living than killing Israelis. Writes reporters Isabel Kershner:

BILIN, West Bank — On a recent weekday, Muhammad Abu Rahma returned to the place where Palestinian protesters and Israeli soldiers used to clash in weekly confrontations that made the West Bank village of Bilin a symbol of resistance against the Israeli occupation.

But this time, he came not to protest but to picnic with his wife and three children. He had served three terms in prison for his activities at the height of the protests. But now, at 33, he had a family and a job as a garbage collector.

"People want money to live, and permits,” he said, referring to the Israeli permits allowing laborers to work in Israel, where they can earn twice as much as they do in the Palestinian territories.

It turns out that time is on Israel's side, as Ambassador Yoram Ettinger and other Israeli analysts have argued for years. The Arab "demographic time bomb" turned out to be a dud, as fertility rates plunge across the Muslim world, a phenomenon I discussed in my 2011 book How Civilizations Die. In a 2011 analysis for Asia Times, I counseled Israel not to attempt to make peace with a Palestinian population heavily tilted towards hot-headed youngsters, and to wait until the declining Palestinian fertility rate had raised the average age of the West Bank population. Like Northern Ireland, the militants would find themselves married with mortgages (at least those who survived). Prime Minister Netanyahu generously commented on the article when it was published.

Although the aging kleptocrats who still run the Palestine Authority out of Ramallah won't admit it, the time is ripe for the kind of peace plan that the Trump administration offered at last month's Bahrain conference. Drafted under the direction of presidential adviser Jared Kushner, the plan would channel $50 billion in development aid to the West Bank over a ten-year period. Israeli observers note that despite the PA's intransigence, the administration plan has shifted the debate in the Middle East and isolated the Palestinian jihadists.

Amazing! American presidents have either preened or pontificated about it, and won Nobel Prizes for doing virtually nothing about it -- peanut farmers and Chicago politicians, for example. If this article is true, it's happening despite them. Lord, please make it happen!

The article is here. https://pjmedia.com/spengler/the-palestinian-problem-is-dying-of-natural-causes/ You can judge for yourself -- and please do!

Early Earth's Rust Belt

Timothy Birdnow

Earth's atmosphere oxygenated fairly late, long after photosynthesis-using bacteria appeared. Why?

New research suggests an answer:

Evidence exists for oxygen-releasing photosynthesis evolving much earlier—perhaps as early as 3 billion years ago. However, the oxygen-rich atmosphere we take for granted today has existed for only about 10 percent of Earth's 4.5-billion-year history. Why did oxygenation of the atmosphere occur so much later than the evolution of oxygen-releasing photosynthesis?

[...]

Modern photosynthesizers consume water and release oxygen. Primitive ones instead consume dissolved iron ions—which would have been abundant in the oceans of early Earth. They produce rust as a byproduct instead of oxygen.

Using experimental microbiology, genomics, and large-scale biogeochemical modeling, "we found that photosynthetic bacteria that use iron instead of water are fierce competitors for light and nutrients," says Ozaki, the paper's first author and now an assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Science at Toho University, in Japan. "We propose that their ability to outcompete oxygen-producing photosynthesizers is an important component of Earth's global oxygen cycle."

Interesting; rust kept the planet from becoming an oxygen rich world. Was this what happened to Mars? Mars has a lot of rust on the surface, after all.

Millenial Whine

Timothy Birdnow

Considering how often I've had to endure Millenials playing Youtube videos or music or television programs in a public place, I find it hard to get upset about this:

Philly Park Officials Criticized for Installing Devices That Blare High-Frequency Noise at Young People

From the article in Gizmodo:

There is growing criticism of Philadelphia officials’ decision to install sonic devices called the Mosquito that constantly emit extremely loud, high-frequency noise from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. every night designed to be audible only to persons aged 13 to 25, according to a Friday report by NPR

Suck it up, kids. You're the most spoiled generation yet, and you can't deal with any sort of inconvenience. Generations in the past had to deal with real issues.

Imagine bombs going off when you are trying to sleep, for example. Or the whine of locusts. Or trains running next to your home.

Life isn't supposed to stop for your comfort and convenience.

Bill, Hillary Clinton booed at Billy Joel concert after singer dedicated song to them

Dana Mathewson

Bill and Hillary Clinton got a taste of New York's state of mind on Thursday night.

After singer Billy Joel dedicated a song to the former first couple and flashed them up on the screen at Madison Square Garden, initial cheers turned to boos from the audience.

WHAT! The Clintons got booed? In Noo Yawk? Then that really WAS a pig that flew past my office window! Been seeing quite a few of them recently, I must say.

But Bill and Hillary must really be getting past their sell-by date if this is happening!

The former first lady has been under scrutiny for years as she criticized President Trump and attempted to lay out the reasons she thought were behind her loss to him in the 2016 election. Former President Bill Clinton, on the other hand, faced fresh criticism surrounding his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, who on Monday was indicted on sex trafficking charges.

A Clinton spokesperson denied the former president had any knowledge of Epstein's crimes, noting that he took "a total of four trips" with Epstein in 2002 and 2003.

Why, of course. He was just hitching a ride from Point A to... Probably had Hillary with him at the time, too, though nobody saw her.

But does this say anything about the Clintons, or does it say something about the caliber of the crowds Billy Joel draws these days? Just sayin'.

Viva la Mexico in Colorado!

Timothy Birdnow

They just want safe refuge, you say? They want to become Americans, you insist? Well, why do this if these are the future Americans?

From CBS Danver:

AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Hundreds of protesters gathered in Aurora on Friday evening to march to the ICE detention facility where illegal and undocumented immigrants are being housed. They also removed the U.S. flag, replaced it with a Mexican flag, and spray painted graffiti on a Blue Lives Matter flag before it was seen flying upside down on the flag pole.

Yeah; these people sure want to adopt this as their home.

Anyone who thinks this new wave of aliens coming here will enculturate is a fool.

Spilled Beans Down Under over Climate Scare

Timothy Birdnow

Selwyn Duke writes about an Australian politician who has spilled the beans over Global Warming.

Out of Power Nationally, Politician Finally Tells Truth on "Global Warming”

He cites a lengthy Facebook post by rural political backbencher Barnaby Joyce:

"The very idea that we can stop climate change is barking mad. Climate change is inevitable, as geology has always shown.” These are the views of New Zealand lecturer of geology, David Shelley. A person vastly more competent than me and the flotilla of others telling the kids the world is going to end from global warming.

The central theme of David Shelley’s analysis is that sea levels are rising and have been for thousands of years and will fall during the next ice age which is expected about now, give or take a thousand years.

Fix for Food Insecurity Worse than the Global Warming Disease

Timothy Birdnow

Here is a Business Insider article suggested by Facebook. The piece argues that Global Warming is "unfair" because it disproportionately impacts poor countries, particularly in terms of food security. I left the following comment:

Food insecurity will only get worse if we impose emissions restrictions/
carbon taxation schemes. The fact is, the West produces most of the World's food and the reason is mechanization and high tech farming - which is the first casualty in a war on carbon. There will be slower economic growth worldwide, and higher food prices. Who is hurt most by that? Even if you believe in Global Warming as some sort of "planetary emergency" you have to see that the solution will make the poor go hungry. But then, so much of this is aimed at redistribution of wealth rather than actually solving some legitimate problem.

Brits Train Guns on Iranians trying to Seize Tanker

Timothy Birdnow

On Thursday the Iranians tried to seize a British oil tanker, only to be taught a lesson on why Briannia ruled the waves.

Western Journalism:

The BP-owned tanker, the British Heritage, was headed into the Strait of Hormuz region when the boats from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps approached the vessel.

The boats then ordered the boat to enter Iranian territorial waters nearby, one might presume for seizure; the move came after an Iranian tanker, the Grace 1, was seized by the Royal Marines last week in Gibraltar for supposedly violating sanctions on shipping oil to Syria, Sky News reported.

However, the IRGC boats were forced to withdraw after the frigate, the HMS Montrose, approached the scene and trained its 30mm guns on them.

That's how you do it! When confronted with violence, be it a schoolyard bully or a rogue terrorist nation, you have to beare your teeth . Too bad the Brits didn't fire on them; then nobody could accuse the U.S. of starting anything.

Soros; Proto-Epstein

Timothy Birdnow

George Soros, the billionaire Hungarian  who finances radical leftist activity around the world, was doing the Jeffrey Epstein thing.

According to Front Page Mag:

Several such accounts allege that Weinstein frequented sex parties hosted by George Soros, the American-Hungarian billionaire and investor.

According to some of these revelations, male guests at such elite parties were given extravagant silk robes and masks, while females were not allowed to wear anything at all, forced to attend these exclusive gatherings completely nude, in a giant decadent room filled with sex toys and lubricants.

Female servants would roam the party with golden trays that held various erection pills intended for the elderly male partygoers. As the night drew on and the alcohol flowed, these parties reportedly turned into giant orgies representing a mix of aging male wrinkled skin and teenaged female flesh.

Unconfirmed reports have been received stating that on at least one occasion Weinstein was seen in the company of Anthony Weiner, snorting cocaine off of a thigh of a seventeen-year-old girl from South America (it is believed that Soros and the Hollywood moguls preferred girls who didn't speak or understand English).

End excerpt.

Soros spent $33 million to foment the riots in Ferguson, Mo. and has funded numerous radical initiatives like the Secretary of State Project or the Prosecuting Attorney Project. He was the man who broke the Bank of England, and he destroyed the Russian economy, putting Putin in power permanently. He was known to have been a Nazi collaborator, despite being Jewish.

This is a man who sold his soul to Satan a long time ago.

DOE STILL Funding Solar Energy

Timothy Birdnow

I thought the Trump Administration was going to end all this "green energy" stupidity, but I guess he's failed at that.

According to the Belleville news Democrat:

Parks in Madison County may be getting a solar boost in the near future.

The Madison County Grants Committee voted this week to approve $406,000 in grants for 11 solar projects across the county. The County Board is expected to vote on the grants at its next meeting.

The U.S. Department of Energy funds the grants aimed to "solarize” park districts, municipal parks and recreational departments within the county.

[...]

Leftover Department of Energy funds are being used to fund the grants, according to a Madison County press release. Those leftover funds came from a block grant the county used on lighting upgrades in several municipalities.

The grants will fund the "solarizing” of items such as lighting, restrooms, scoreboards, charging stations and more. The maximum any project can receive is $50,000.

Why is the U.S. funding solar energy? It has been proven to be at best a poor energy source, it produces lots of greenhouse gas and other pollutions, and it winds up costing taxpayers a lot of money.

Also, why are they spending "leftover" funds? Why not let the taxpayers have it back?

Well, they use baseline budgeting which says not only "use it or lose it" but actually use it or you won't get a funding increase next year. There is a built-in incentive to throw money away. Green energy is the one of the worst ways to waste money.

Why hasn't President Trump stopped this?

The Russians DIDN'T do it!

Timothy Birdnow

The Russians didn't do it according to sources in the DOJ.

From the Federalist:

But now, in open court, an attorney representing the Department of Justice has admitted that the Russian government had nothing to do with the internet troll farm case.

Mueller and Barr’s reckless publicity of unproven "Russian interference” allegations as "established” confronted federal Judge Dabney L. Freidrich with a challenge to her authority to preside over a trial to determine whether Concord is guilty of anything. Again, the Mueller report publicly pronounced that the Mueller team "established that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election through the ‘active measures’ social media campaign.” Really? So why are we even bothering to have a trial if the government has already "established” that Concord is guilty?

So they didn't do it.

A newly released transcript reveals details of a humiliating hearing that took place the day before Mueller’s puzzling press conference. The judge asked the prosecutor, "Can you address also the specific tie to the Russian government, which is the overarching comment that the attorney general made tying both this case and then the case involving the hacking and the release of the e-mails, the GRU case, to the Russian government?”

Buckle up, buttercup, because you’re not going to believe DOJ’s response: "The report doesn’t say that.” What? I thought we "knew” that the Russian government committed an act of war by posting politically charged information on the internet. Now the DOJ is backing away from any tie between the internet troll farm and the Russian government?

Get it? No troll farm manipulation, no Trump collusion, nada, zip, zero, the null set.

Trump; French Surrender Monkey on Census

Timothy Birdnow

Trump folds like a cheap suit on his pledge to have the citizenship question on the census.

https://dailycaller.com/2019/07/11/trump-citizenship-question-census-caves-executive-order/

Don't shoot your mouth off, Mr. Trump, if you won't go through with it.

I understand; Trump can't afford to tell the courts to go to hell - something he would be well within his rights to do in this instance - because they would use that to impeach him, and the RINO's in the Senate (like Mittens) would vote to convict him. But we are doing the Republic a great disservice by allowing the courts to interject themselves where they have no authority. And this is clearly a place hwere they have authority; the Constitution mandates the President do the census, not Congress or the Superem Court. HE has final say in it. SCOTUS should shut the hell up about it.

The President had every right to ignore that ruling; it was a Separation of Powers issue.

But if he was not going to violate the court order he should not have said he might. Do or do not; there is no try.

Facebook: it's o.k. to threaten Conservatives

Timothy Birdnow

Facebook got caught in another assault on Conservatives and free speech, this time posting changes to its Community Standards rules relaxing threatening or hateful speech towards some individuals. They deleted the changes after getting caught.

From Lifesite News:

Breitbart reported that Facebook updated its Community Standards section on Violence and Incitement with language banning "threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence)” against individuals or groups, "unless the target is an organization or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organization Policy.”

The Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy applies to "terrorist activity,” "organized hate,” "mass or serial murder,” "human trafficking,” and "organized violence or criminal activity.” While most of those categories are straightforward, critics have expressed concern that Facebook interpretes "organized hate” – which it defines as "any association” whose words, actions, or views "attack individuals based on characteristics, including race, religious affiliation, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, serious disease or disability” – to encompass non-hateful conservative views

Who decides who and what is hateful? The Southern Poverty Law Center, perhaps? This is a recipe for suppression of normal views.

If facebook is a social platform it must not censor. If it is a media outlet (something they insist they are not since it would mean greater regulation) then they have to stop trying to shut up a segment of the population. It really is that simple.

The article continues:

Last month, it was revealed that Facebook’s criteria for identifying potential "hate agents” doesn’t merely include discernible hate speech or association with established hate groups, but can include simply interviewing individuals the tech giant deems hateful.

When a bunch of Millenials are the ones making this determination, we should not be surprised that someone who says "you shouldn't have to bake a cake for a gay wedding if you are a Christian" would be labeled a hatemonger.

Facebook and the other tech giants are far too powerful. They hold an empire that the worst of the robber barons could only dream about. It's time we do some trust busting.
