Colleges Prefer to Import Muslim Students Because They Pay The Higher "Out of State Tuition"

I have long suspected this to be true. But I had not previously come across any mainstream source willing to admit the truth.

Well, here it is, from the Seattle Times:
Culture clash with Mideast students stirs up Idaho tow POCATELLO, Idaho — When the Rev. Jim Jones, pastor of the Blazing Grace Church here, approached the lectern at City Hall, he was holding a copy of the Quran. 
The Islamic text commanded followers to embrace intolerance, hate and violence, he told the zoning panel, explaining why he felt uncomfortable with the plan of Middle Eastern students at Idaho State University to build a mosque within walking distance of campus. “I get very fearful because I live close to this place,” Jones told the panel, which was considering a rezoning request. 
The mosque was approved. But the remarks by Jones and other opponents at the February 2014 hearing were signs of the fissures developing in this railroad town as Idaho State became increasingly dependent on Saudi and Kuwaiti students to replace income lost from steep declines in local enrollment and state funding. 
The potential payoff of having these students was big — $20,000 per student in annual out-of-state tuition, nearly three times what state residents pay. As the number of Middle Eastern students grew to nearly 1,200 — almost 10 percent of the school’s enrollment — that meant an estimated $40 million for the local economy every year. 
But Idaho State had not bargained for the cultural clash in this isolated community. Even if they were just normal, rowdy college kids, the behavior of the mostly male students stood out in this conservative, predominantly Mormon city. 
Free from the strict cultural mores of their home countries, some students have faced charges like drunken driving and stalking. Also, professors said students, many of them unfamiliar with English, were ill prepared and frequently resorted to cheating.
The reason I had long suspected this to be true is because I live in a college town, and I know from observation that every year the population of "Middle Eastern students" increases by what I would estimate to be about 20-30%.

Every year we have more women in Burqas, Niqabs, and Hijab. I consider full-face covering to be concrete evidence of radicalization. Truth is, most the ME girls (to the extent that there are ME girls) are either wearing Hijab or no covering at all, so judging by the female population, I can not truly estimate the percentage of radicalized Muslims in my area.

However, as the article above notes, most of the imported students are male. If I am to judge by beards, I'd say there are a lot of radicals. But honestly, I can not know that that is an accurate predictor.

Additionally, I want to comment on why I say these students are "imported". The article seems to have knowledge that the students really came here from Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. In my area, I can not tell where they came from. They COULD be from elsewhere in the United States. However, I do not believe that to be the case.

Living in California, you get used to living among people who are new to the country. Simple observation can tell you if these people are new to America. You hear a heavy accent, or speaking in another language entirely. Sometimes they don't speak English at all. They nod and point, and smile a lot. Or, in the case of many ME people, they don't smile at all. They may wear clothing from their native country. This is not always the robes or burqas we identify with Islam. It may simply be clothing that looks unrecognizable, from one's experience of any shopping center anywhere in the local area.

This is not to say that one can be sure that a person is new to the country from any of this evidence, but I am the type of person who will often strike up conversations with people I don't know. From this I have been able to determine that my judgement is usually correct on whether or not the person is new to America. I will ask them questions about their experience here, why they came, do they like it better here than where they are from, what it is they do like or not like?

(As an aside, I have learned a lot this way, and I have met some really wonderful people from all over the world. One thing I have learned is we are very lucky to live here in this country, and we have it easy compared to even the upper middle class people of other nations.  Another thing I have learned is Mexican people, Vietnamese people, Taiwanese people, Indian people, Africans, Filipinos, and most Arab Christians, and Persian Christians are perfectly nice people. Indians, Filipinos, and Africans tend to me very enthusiastic people from my experience. It is a delight to speak with them and hear of their hopes and dreams.)

Anyway, I have really digressed from the point of this post. The point is, Universities are helping to import overseas students, and at least in the case of Idaho State, they would PREFER the foreign students, because they pay higher tuition.

Now, business being business (and yes, Universities are businesses even though they like to believe themselves to be above such concerns) one can reasonably assume that all Universities feel the natural self-interest that comes along with an offer of more money. Therefore, one can reasonably assume that most Universities are tempted to increase the percentage of foreign-born students, so that they will receive the higher tuition fees.

And verily, the California State University and University of California systems are impacted in many majors, and are struggling to deal with budget issues and the accommodation of all the students who want to attend:
Stephanie Mazariego, an 18-year-old student at Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga, wants to attend a California State University school. She has Cal State Fullerton in her sights, but has been warned by older relatives that the days of simply picking a CSU campus and expecting to easily get in are long gone. 
The system has buckled in recent years under $1 billion in state budget cuts from 2007 to 2012, and although support is trickling back in, some wonder whether the once-model institution will become an example to other states of how the promise of public higher education was broken by misplaced priorities in California and on campuses. 
From Fall 2010 to Fall 2013, between 20,000 and 30,000 qualified first-time freshmen were turned away each of those years from CSU schools as the state recovered from the Great Recession. 
“We were making a real faith effort to ensure that if you graduated from high school and you wanted to go to a post-secondary school, you can. That's the democratic way,” William G. Tierney, co-director of the USC Pullias Center for Higher Education, said about the state's Master Plan. 
“The goal and mission is still there, but how we get there is not clear, needs to be clarified, and we need to walk our talk.” campus is impacted when it has exhausted enrollment capacity because there isn't enough physical space or there aren't enough instructors. 
A major is impacted when the area of study receives more applications from eligible students than can be accommodated. 
“When I go to national meetings, most of the presidents are worrying about meeting enrollment targets, and here I am turning down (thousands) of students who should be admitted,” said CSULB President Jane Close Conoley. 
CSULB became fully impacted, or beyond enrollment capacity, in 2012. Some CSU schools, like Dominguez Hills in Carson, are not campus-impacted, but may have certain majors that are. 
Students can still be admitted to a campus in a different major, or they may be admitted to an impacted major — one that has more students interested than seats available — if they meet additional criteria. Impacted campuses give priority to local students.
So, here we see the Cal State University system is turning Californian-born students down outright. AND, at the same time, they are struggling with budget cuts. That means the pressure is to take more foreign students.

At the same time, we learn here that colleges around the country are not able to get enough students (like Idaho State University), and so the pressure is even stronger to accept foreign born students.

So, what do you think is going to happen? As far as I can tell, we are getting more and more and more Middle Eastern students, and many of them are Muslim.

I know for instance that there are more and more Islamic food stores, Halal restaurants, and Mosques popping up in the area where I live.

The building where I used to work for the Democratic Party, back in the 1990's, has become a major Mosque in the area.

Many of the new students I have seen in the past 2 years have not been Middle Eastern, necessarily, but have been Pakistani, Bangladeshi, or Sri Lankan. (I can not tell the difference, frankly.)

Well, goody for us.

All polls show that a high percentage of Muslims around the world, including those who live in the Western world, believe in various disgusting aspects of Sharia law, that gays should be put to death, that apostates should be put to death, that it's ok to have sex with children, that women should wear burqas, that Jihad against the Infidel is a mission for Muslims, etc.

Here are some polls for the doubters out there:

  • Game Over, Pew Poll Reveals Majority of Muslims Are Anything But "Moderate"
  • Game Over, The Muslim Melting Pot
  • Game Over: Sharia Law Statistics
  • Game Over II: Poll of Egyptians Shows 84% Want Apostates Stoned to Death
  • Game Over III: 78% of British Muslims Want Limits On Free Speech When It Comes To Criticizing Religion
  • Game Over IV: 75% of Egyptian-Americans Who Vote In Egyptian Elections Vote For Muslim Brotherhood Candidate
  • Game Over V: Majority of Muslims In Islamic Countries Want Laws Strictly on the Koran
  • Game Over VI: Danish Imam Defects, Declaring, "The truth is that there is not a single mosque or Muslim organization in Denmark that is not run by Islamists"
  • Game Over VII: One In Three Men In Devout Muslim Pakistan Say Raping Boys Is Acceptable
  • GAME OVER VIII: European Poll Reveals 2/3rds of Muslims Believe Sharia More Important Than European Laws
  • GAME OVER IX: Are Muslims IN GENERAL, Moderate, Or Not? Statistics Say HELL NO
  • GAME OVER X: Al-Azhar University Says, ISIS Not Apostates
  • GAME OVER XI: Al Jazeera Poll Shows 80% of Muslims Support ISIS
  • GAME OVER --- PEW Poll Shows Upwards of 287 million ISIS supporters in just 11 countries including 1/3 of Syria Refugees
  • Game Over: Large Percentages of Muslims All Over The World Want Sharia To Be The Law of the Land
  • GAME OVER: Poll Reveals, 21% of Turks Believe ISIS Represents Islam

  • Now if this is true, and it is, then that means that, when we import Muslims, we are importing a high percentage of people who believe in these abominations.

    Why would we do this to ourselves?

    We can not lay all the blame at the foot of Barack Obama, though he does seem even more enthusiastic about Islam than George Bush and the rest of the GOP. But not really by much, if we are to be honest with ourselves.

    We need to stop creating a situation whereby it is hard for native-born young people to get into the schools they want to go to because the schools would rather accept imported Muslim students.

    Personally, I am interested in knowing the answers to questions such as the following?

    What is the process by which a potential student acquires a Student Visa?

    Does the University aid in this process?

    Are young people who enter our nation on Student Visas guaranteed citizenship if they proceed with the process?

    Is the government incentivizing Universities to accept students from various countries?

    Are there Federally-funded student aid, or grants, available to foreign born students?

    And, in conclusion, we need to elect leaders who will put a stop to this state of affairs. Considering the fact that Ted Cruz has actually pushed to dramatically expand Muslim migration, we must begin to come to terms with the idea that Donald Trump, with all his flaws, may be our only hope.

    Yes, Wall St Dems and Corporate Republicans, and VICE VERSA: “STOP TRUMP!”


    Meet the Republican Mega-Donors Spending Millions to Take Down Donald Trump 

    The individuals that have spent the most money trying to stop Trump are members of the incredibly wealthy Ricketts family from Nebraska. Since the beginning of this year, Marlene Ricketts, who is married to TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts, and their son Todd, have given $5 million to Our Principles PAC, the largest group that is solely dedicated to thwarting Trump.

    TD Ameritrade


    Our Principles PAC began running ads against Trump in January ahead of the Iowa caucuses. As Trump continued to decimate his rivals one by one in recent weeks, additional mega-donors have steadily flocked to the group.

    Among its million-dollar donors are Warren Stephens, a billionaire Republican investment banker from Arkansas, and Paul Singer, a billionaire philanthropist and hedge fund manager from New York.

    Club for Growth

    which was described by Politico as the “pre-eminent institution promoting Republican adherence to a free-market, free-trade, anti-regulation agenda,” has not wasted any time spending that money.

    Brussels Attacks: Nuclear Alert After Security Officer ‘Found Dead With His Pass Missing’

    From The Telegraph:
    A security guard who worked at a Belgian nuclear facility was murdered two days after the Brussels bombings, but prosecutors have denied that the killing was related to terrorism. 
    The prosecutor’s office in the city of Charleroi, south of Brussels, also denied a report in the newspaper Derniere Heure that his work pass was stolen, according to the Belga news agency. 
    The report raised concerns that the Brussels bombers had wanted to build a radioactive dirty bomb — but apparently shelved the plan after security was stepped up at Belgium’s nuclear plants following intelligence warnings. 
    The guard, Didier Prospero, was shot dead at his home in Froidchapelle. 
    A police spokeswoman said she could not comment on the case because the investigation was ongoing. 
    Prospero, who worked for the G4S security company, was found dead in his bathroom by his three children when they returned from school, Belga reported. He was shot four times. 
    An earlier report had said he was shot while walking his dog. He was the chief security officer at a nuclear research facility in Fleurus, near Charleroi. 
    Other reports in the Belgian media said he worked at a nuclear power plant. The murder is being handled as a criminal, not a terrorism case.

    "Freelance Journalist" (MUSLIM) Is Arrested And Charged With Terrorist Murder Over Brussels Attacks Which Left 31 People Dead…

    That's a new euphemism. We've heard "militant", "rebel", "gunmen", "youths", "migrants", and "refugees", but I have never heard "Freelance Journalist" before.

    They ought to take that one for a spin for a few years. Sounds just dumb enough to fool the mass of Leftist idiots educated by our Government-Media/Academia System.

    From the Daily Mail:
    Belgian prosecutors have arrested and charged a new suspect in the Brussels terror attacks. The federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement today that a man identified as Faycal Cheffou, was one of six men detained in a police raid on Thursday. 
    The statement added that he has been charged with for ‘involvement in a terrorist group, terrorist killings and attempted terrorist killings’. 
    Belgium media reports suggest Cheffou, a freelance journalist, is the third bomber pictured walking through Brussels Airport before the attacks with Ibrahim El Bakraoui and Najim Laachraoui. 
    However that has not been confirmed by Belgian prosecutors. 
    But one source close to the investigation, said: ‘That is a hypothesis the investigators are working on.’ 
    Reports in the Belgian media also say that the taxi driver who took the suicide bombers to the airport on Tuesday morning has said he believes the man wearing the white jacket and hat is Cheffou. 
    Prosecutors also said a second man Aboubakar A. had also been charged with participation in the activities of a terrorist group.

    Donald Trump: "We Have To Have Tremendous Surveillance And That Includes The Mosques"

    Do you hear how focused this man is?

    Trump brings up a very important point in this interview. He notes the fact that surveillance and policing of Islamic terrorists is "costing our country a fortune."

    Think about that. Think about how much money is spent on the TSA. Think about how much is spent on the computer systems, and decryption coding, and research, and how much time is spent on tracking down leads, and how many people we have to employ, and train, and how much time all of us, as individuals, have to take out of our days (getting strip-searched at airports, having our cars searched before we go into a parking garage, etc.) all because MUSLIMS are an imminent threat to our society.

    Belgium - Council of Muslim theologians refuses to Allow Friday prayer for all victims, because not all victims are Muslim

    CNN has been reporting, falsely, that Muslims are "praying for the victims" of the Jihad attacks in Belgium.

    The truth is, Muslims have been specifically ordered not to pray for Infidel victims, but only to pray for their fellow Muslims who were victims.

    And I would imagine that means the "Martyrs" themselves.

    Belgium - Council of Muslim theologians refuses to Allow Friday prayer for all victims, because not all victims are Muslim. (lacapitale).[Googletranslated]

    Finally, the Council of Theologians preferred to call all imams in Belgium to spend the Friday sermon concentrating on the rejection of all forms of radicalism, fanaticism and terrorism without joint declaration to all mosques.

    A position that lacks firmness denounced by some members of the Muslim community. But there is more.

    At the council, as we heard confirmed by several sources, religious representatives refused to ask the imams to recite Surah "Al-Fatiha" (openness) in tribute to victims of the attacksThis because: "not all the victims are Muslim". "They pretended that it is not included in rituals codes. That is to say, it is not intended in practice to dedicate a prayer to non-Muslims. "
    Information that was confirmed to us by the Islamic scholar Michael Privot. "It has been refused to recite this prayer in homage to" unbelievers "in the words. A minute of silence was also proposed at the meeting, which was again refused, "he addedHmmm......Can one deduct that Belgium's Muslim theologians are more Islamic hardliner than their foreign colleagues? (See related Below).Read the full story here.Related:

    In case you wonder what high negatives translate to

    My wife dislikes the current president even more than I do.
    How much do I think he’s a moron? The only thing I agreed with him in the last 7+ years on we both were tragically wrong on (doing nothing about Syria).
    There was a time WAAAAAY back when she considered she MIGHT have voted for HRC. 2006-7. Maybe. That’s out.
    She can’t stand Cruz (Bickle/Swanson). He will NEVER get vote in this house.
    Kasich is OUT (TPP/TAA/tolerance for illegal immigration)
    But now she is pointing out, and believing before vetting every negative story on Trump.
    “These negative numbers are coming in big time. A negative view of Trump: 70 percent of women, 72 percent of millennials, 83 percent of blacks, 77 percent of Hispanics. Here you go, 68 percent of suburbanites.”
    To be sure my wife is a teacher awash in a sea of Bernie supporters, and the above comprise an ocean of voters influenced/instructed by TV ..it’s FEELINGS NOT FACTS, but….
    There is a set FEELING Trump is a racist. I don’t see that at all. The defense, of course, is how many non blancos have had promotions all their careers based on achievement and merit. Same for the misogyny charges. Hispanics MAYBE I understand, but do Hispanics here legally want no border?
    Right now, March 26th, I don’t see how Trump overcomes this. Maybe he’s holding fire until he has the nomination, but I don’t see why.
    But you know, we are inundated by news slanted totally in terms of ignored stories. We see the reports of negatives, we see stories of ‘Cruz drawing closer’. we see stories after story of the apocalypse … meanwhile here is the latest RCP poll of all polls.
    Trump has a mountain to climb if he is to win, and I have a feeling if he will win, he will be treated as if he is a 3rd party candidate unless it’s a landslide.
    Meanwhile Bernie. Who is the most trusted. Who has identified key problems.
    Who believes in community property. You know, sharing. What they us in kindergarten.
    For children.
    Of course even though the public knows he is the most trustworthy, they are selecting the amoral liar.

    Kennedy School of Govt @Harvard-Employment rate of illegal immigrant men far higher than for legal immigrants and natives

    I actually did not believe this trope was true FOR A SECOND.
    According to Borjas’ paper, the “employment rate of undocumented men is 86.6%, as compared to 73.9% for natives and 77.8% for legal immigrants,” and this gap has been widening since the mid-1990s.
    study shows that about 10% of all persons in their early 30s are undocumented. In addition, 23% of illegal immigrants live in California, 7% reside in New York, and 15% live in Texas.
    Borjas reached the following conclusions:
    Even after the regression exhaustively controls for… skill differences – and adjusts for the possibility that economic conditions varied dramatically over time for each of the narrowly defined skill groups, as well as for the possibility that economic conditions varied dramatically among the different geographic regions where the three groups tend to settle – it is still the case that the employment rate of immigrants, and particularly that of undocumented immigrant men, increased dramatically relative to that of native-born persons.

    Trump's Hot Aide, Katrina Pierson, Makes Good on Promise to ‘Spill the Beans’ on Heidi Cruz

    So, when this loose behaviour I throw off, 

    And pay the debt I never promised, 
    By how much better than my word I am, 
    By so much shall I falsify men's hopes; 
    And, like bright metal on a sullen ground, 
    My reformation, glittering o'er my fault, 
    Shall show more goodly, and attract more eyes, 
    Than that which hath no foil to set it off.

    THAT'S how it's done, Teddie boy.

    You know, just when Trump had FULLY BAITED Cruz and the GOP into believing his candidacy was a joke, easily beaten, he comes out with this, a sophisticated, perfectly targeted smart truth missile aimed right up the ass of the Cruz Campaign, and the Bushfag GOP.

    Trump is going to beat the shit out of Cruz.

    And then he's going to beat the shit out of Hillary.

    Donald Trump is Prince Hal, Henry V. The GOP thought he was Tommy Boy.

    So sad. So fuckin' funny.

    UPDATE -

    Oh, and by the way, if you don't think Trump will similarly dismantle Hillary, consider that Hillary is a Democrat, the Party that produce THIS:

    Will governments soon be able to spy on our brains?

    From the WE Forum:
    In this video for the World Economic Forum, Nita A. Farahany, Professor of Law and Philosophy at Duke University, discusses the potential but also the legal and ethical risks of these emerging technologies. 
    “We are not yet at the point where a little thought bubble above your head is something we can see, but we’re getting there,” she says. 
    “Which means the NSA and other organizations can spy not just on your emails and your cell phones but soon potentially on your brains as well.”
    I find it troubling that this woman engages in endless questions, and descriptive discussion, but never does any Prescriptive Ethics, never proposes any solutions, or philosophical/ethical principles by which we might choose to forbid the violation of our God-given 4th Amendment Rights.

    "No-one told me I was going to be interviewed by a Muslim’: Moment Burma democracy heroine Suu Kyi lost her cool with BBC’s Mishal Husain after being quizzed over violence towards Muslim minority

    ‘No-one told me I was going to be interviewed by a Muslim’: Moment Burma democracy heroine Suu Kyi lost her cool with BBC’s Mishal Husain after being quizzed over violence towards Muslim minority

    Oh boy, the British media are really, really mad at Suu Kyi:
    She is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and a beacon of saintly integrity in the West who remained under house arrest for 15 years in her native Burma. 
    However, there is another side to Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi that sits at odds with her iconic image. 
    After the BBC Today presenter Mishal Husain gave Suu Kyi a rough ride during a BBC interview, Suu Kyi lost her composure and was heard to mutter angrily off-air: ‘No one told me I was going to be interviewed by a Muslim.’
    Here's the thing: Buddhists hate Islam, Hindus hate Islam, and even Burmese politicians - who are usually thought of by the Leftist Western media as Saints - hate Islam.

    And yet, somehow, all of us are expected to examine ourselves about the hate in our heart, but Muslims are not expected to stop fucking murdering us.

    Fuck that noise.

    Any Muslim who is pro-Sharia (stoning gays and apostates to death, women are worth half a man in the court of Law) and pro-Jihad against the Infidel, is a danger to civilization. It's as simple as that.

    Decent human beings do not have to examine themselves and rid themselves of hatred for evil.

    We should hate evil.

    Killing gays because they are gay IS EVIL.

    Killing people because they believe what they want to believe IS EVIL.

    If a person wants to institute those ideas as law, THEY ARE EVIL.

    Belgium: Scuzlim Tries To Blow Himself Up On Crowded Street, Police Shoot Him


    That's how it done:
    Belgian police shot and wounded a man carrying an explosives-laden suitcase in the Brussels neighborhood of Schaerbeek on Friday – hours after seven suspects were rounded up in connection with the terror attacks. 
    The arrest was one of three made Friday that were tied to the arrest in Paris on Thursday of a jihadist convicted in Belgium last year and suspect of planning a new attack, officials said. 
    “I can confirm a police operation targeting a person who was intercepted by police and suffered a slight leg injury,” Schaerbeek Mayor Bernard Clerfayt told AFP. 
    Witnesses said police shot him in the leg after he failed to respond to their orders. One person told RTBF the man had a girl of about 8 years old with him.

    The word unseemly doesn't begin to describe Obama's behavior this week.

    And more ongoing today in Brussels. See Armed police shoot man 'carrying a bomb in a rucksack after he takes a woman hostage' at Brussels tram station as they swoop on terror suspects linked to 'imminent attack in France' at the Daily Mail. Excerpt, dated March 25, 2016:
    A woman was taken hostage by a suspected terrorist during a dramatic stand-off at a tram stop in Brussels today, witnesses say.

    Armed police shot the suspect as part of a fresh swoop to thwart an 'imminent attack' on France. A second suspect was also shot in the raid, which began in a flat in the nearby Schaerbeek area, north Brussels.

    Footage shows police coaxing a child away from the injured suspect, who was shot in the leg at the tram stop amid reports he was carrying a bomb in a rucksack.

    Belgian prosecutors confirmed the man was linked to a planned attack in France, which was foiled by the French authorities last night in a separate raid in Paris.

    Footage shows police 'neutralising' the suspect before dragging him off behind a nearby car as they arrested him in front of terrified witnesses.

    UPDATED AT BOTTOM OF POST - Top Jihadist Claims Islamic State Has Agents Working in Western Airports

    The Islamic State has agents working in Western airports, metro stations and “very sensitive facilities in the world,” a leading Islamic State-allied militant claimed in an exclusive interview. 
    Abu al-Ayna al-Ansari, a Salafist movement senior official in the Gaza Strip, made the claim in a pre-recorded, hour-long interview to air in full on Sunday on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” the popular weekend talk radio program. 
    Klein doubles as Breitbart’s senior investigative reporter and Jerusalem bureau chief. Ansari is a well-known Gazan Salafist jihadist allied with Islamic State ideology. 
    During the interview with Klein, Ansari seemed to be speaking as an actual IS member, repeatedly using the pronoun “we” when referring to IS and even seemingly making declarations on behalf of IS. 
    IS has been reluctant to officially declare its presence in Gaza for fear of a Hamas clampdown, but the group is known to be active in the coastal enclave and Ansari is a suspected IS leader. 
    IS-aligned militants have taken responsibility for recent rocket fire from Gaza aimed at Israel. Ansari claimed IS infiltration of Western transportation systems. 
    Ansari stated: 
    The Islamic State is a state. The Islamic State has agents all around the very sensitive facilities in the world, like metro stations, like airports and other places whether in the West or in the Arab world. 
    We have our mujahedeen implanted in those facilities as workers, as employees, even in the security field in the airports. And they were recruited to work with the Islamic State and we proved that we succeeded to reach a very deep infiltration in these facilities. 
    We showed it in Sinai with the Russian jet. We show it now. And everybody should understand. This is a state. This state will not disappear. It will only become bigger because this is the message. This is the prophecy of Muhammad and this is the promise of Allah.
    UPDATE -

    via NYT:
    In cases where potential voters are reluctant to register, Reema Ahmad, a community organizer in Chicago, reminds them what is at stake this year. She regularly stands outside mosques to recruit new voters and sometimes will wonder aloud as prayer goers whisk by if they really want Mr. Trump to be president. It tends to stop them in their tracks. 
    “It’s one of the main tactics I employ,” Ms. Ahmad says, noting the importance of this election for Muslims. “If you’re not at the dinner table, you’re on the menu."

    St. John's Passion

    John 18-19 New King James Version (NKJV)

    Betrayal and Arrest in Gethsemane

    18 When Jesus had spoken these words, He went out with His disciples over the Brook Kidron, where there was a garden, which He and His disciples entered. And Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew the place; for Jesus often met there with His disciples. Then Judas, having received a detachment of troops, and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, “Whom are you seeking?”
    They answered Him, “Jesus of Nazareth.”
    Jesus said to them, “I am He. And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them. Now when He said to them, “I am He, they drew back and fell to the ground.
    Then He asked them again, “Whom are you seeking?”
    And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.”
    Jesus answered, “I have told you that I am He. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these go their way,” that the saying might be fulfilled which He spoke, “Of those whom You gave Me I have lost none.”
    10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.
    11 So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me?”

    Before the High Priest

    12 Then the detachment of troops and the captain and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him. 13 And they led Him away to Annas first, for he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas who was high priest that year. 14 Now it was Caiaphas who advised the Jews that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

    Peter Denies Jesus

    15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another[a] disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and went with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest. 16 But Peter stood at the door outside. Then the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the door, and brought Peter in. 17 Then the servant girl who kept the door said to Peter, “You are not also one of this Man’s disciples, are you?”
    He said, “I am not.”
    18 Now the servants and officers who had made a fire of coals stood there, for it was cold, and they warmed themselves. And Peter stood with them and warmed himself.

    Jesus Questioned by the High Priest

    19 The high priest then asked Jesus about His disciples and His doctrine.
    20 Jesus answered him, “I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where the Jews always meet,[b] and in secret I have said nothing. 21 Why do you ask Me? Ask those who have heard Me what I said to them. Indeed they know what I said.”
    22 And when He had said these things, one of the officers who stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, “Do You answer the high priest like that?”
    23 Jesus answered him, “If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil; but if well, why do you strike Me?”
    24 Then Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.

    Peter Denies Twice More

    25 Now Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. Therefore they said to him, “You are not also one of His disciples, are you?”
    He denied it and said, “I am not!”
    26 One of the servants of the high priest, a relative of him whose ear Peter cut off, said, “Did I not see you in the garden with Him?” 27 Peter then denied again; and immediately a rooster crowed.

    In Pilate’s Court

    28 Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the Praetorium, and it was early morning. But they themselves did not go into the Praetorium, lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover. 29 Pilate then went out to them and said, “What accusation do you bring against this Man?”
    30 They answered and said to him, “If He were not an evildoer, we would not have delivered Him up to you.”
    31 Then Pilate said to them, “You take Him and judge Him according to your law.”
    Therefore the Jews said to him, “It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death,” 32 that the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled which He spoke, signifying by what death He would die.
    33 Then Pilate entered the Praetorium again, called Jesus, and said to Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?”
    34 Jesus answered him, “Are you speaking for yourself about this, or did others tell you this concerning Me?”
    35 Pilate answered, “Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered You to me. What have You done?”
    36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”
    37 Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?”
    Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”
    38 Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, “I find no fault in Him at all.

    Taking the Place of Barabbas

    39 “But you have a custom that I should release someone to you at the Passover. Do you therefore want me to release to you the King of the Jews?”
    40 Then they all cried again, saying, “Not this Man, but Barabbas!” Now Barabbas was a robber.

    The Soldiers Mock Jesus

    19 So then Pilate took Jesus and scourged Him. And the soldiers twisted a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and they put on Him a purple robe. Then they said,[c] “Hail, King of the Jews!” And they struck Him with their hands.
    Pilate then went out again, and said to them, “Behold, I am bringing Him out to you, that you may know that I find no fault in Him.”

    Pilate’s Decision

    Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, “Behold the Man!”
    Therefore, when the chief priests and officers saw Him, they cried out, saying, “Crucify Him, crucify Him!
    Pilate said to them, “You take Him and crucify Him, for I find no fault in Him.”
    The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and according to our[d] law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God.”
    Therefore, when Pilate heard that saying, he was the more afraid, and went again into the Praetorium, and said to Jesus, “Where are You from?” But Jesus gave him no answer.
    10 Then Pilate said to Him, “Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have power to crucify You, and power to release You?”
    11 Jesus answered, “You could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above. Therefore the one who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.”
    12 From then on Pilate sought to release Him, but the Jews cried out, saying, “If you let this Man go, you are not Caesar’s friend. Whoever makes himself a king speaks against Caesar.”
    13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus out and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called The Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha. 14 Now it was the Preparation Day of the Passover, and about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jews, “Behold your King!”
    15 But they cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him! Crucify Him!”
    Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?”
    The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar!”
    16 Then he delivered Him to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus and led Him away.[e]

    The King on a Cross

    17 And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, 18 where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the center. 19 Now Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was:
    20 Then many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin.
    21 Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, “I am the King of the Jews.”’”
    22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”
    23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece. 24 They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be,” that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says:
    “They divided My garments among them,
    And for My clothing they cast lots.”[f]
    Therefore the soldiers did these things.

    Behold Your Mother

    25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold your son!” 27 Then He said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home.

    It Is Finished

    28 After this, Jesus, knowing[g] that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

    Jesus’ Side Is Pierced

    31 Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 32 Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him. 33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. 35 And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you may believe. 36 For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, “Not one of His bones shall be broken.”[h] 37 And again another Scripture says, “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.”[i]

    Jesus Buried in Joseph’s Tomb

    38 After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took the body of Jesus. 39 And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. 40 Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. 42 So there they laid Jesus, because of the Jews’ Preparation Day, for the tomb was nearby.

    Ted Cruz Pushed to Dramatically Expand Muslim Migration in 2013

    From Breitbart:
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) VOTING RECORD A 97% Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced legislative proposals that would have radically expanded Muslim migration into the United States, when Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was pushing to open America’s borders in 2013, the Washington Examiner‘s Paul Bedard noted in a new exposé. 
    “Plans pushed by GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz under the immigration reform debate in 2013 that would have jumped the number of immigrants, including those from Muslim nations, were raised by the Trump campaign Tuesday,” Bedard wrote on Tuesday. 
    “Under the Cruz plan, yearly legal immigration would have gone from 740,000 to 1,675,000. He said [subsequently] his idea was to actually help kill the bill not boost the numbers.” 
    Back then, during the “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill fight, Cruz said that the “best” part of the bill from Rubio and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), among its other co-authors, were its changes to legal immigration. 
    Those changes would have resulted in a complete demographic transformation of the nation. Cruz complained that with regards to legal immigration, Rubio’s immigration expansion bill did not go “nearly far enough.” 
    At the time, Cruz said: 
    The best aspect of the so-called Gang of Eight bill is the reform that is found concerning legal immigration. I think it makes some positive steps with regard to legal immigration, but I don’t think it goes nearly far enough… if we want to improve high-skilled innovation in my view we should not do so by half measures. We should do so with a significant step that materially improves the status quo, and for that reason I’ve introduced this amendment to increase the cap by five hundred percent. 
    As such, Cruz offered an amendment to double green cards—which would have resulted in an explosion of low-skilled immigration from non-Western nations. Today, approximately nine in ten green cards are given to non-Western countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asi, and Latin America. 
    The U.S. has admitted 59 million immigrants since 1965, changing the structure of the country both economically and culturally. Cruz also offered an amendment to quintuple the controversial H-1B program, which would have allowed corporations to replace American workers with lower-wage foreign workers and would have resulted in a vast expansion of Muslim migration. 
    As Breitbart News has previously reported, the H-1B visa is a direct pipeline for Muslim migration. According to State Department data, in 2014 the U.S. admitted over 4,000 migrants from Muslim-majority countries on H-1B visas, plus an extra 108,000 H-1B migrants from India. 
    If the demographics of the employment visas match the demographics of the country, this would mean that more than 15,000 H-1B visas went to Muslim Indians (14% of 108,000)—meaning that in fiscal year 2014, the U.S. likely issued around 19,000 H-1B visas to Muslim foreign workers.

    Just a Few Of The Minor Inconveniences We Put Up With For The Pleasure of Living With All The Moderate Muslims Who Are Our Neighbors and Our Friends

    When you import a population of Muslims into your society, sure, there are going to be a few bad apples.

    But the good far outweighs the bad. Think of all the Moderate Muslims, and how the Western world just would not be what it is without them.

AND HE IS THE MOST SERIOUS.


    Today, March 25, 2016, there is NO ONE I can vote for.

    Barack Obama Tells Audience of Argentinian Youths There's No Difference Between Socialism, Communism, and Marxism

    From the Indepedent Sentinel:
    Barack Obama told an audience of Argentinian youth that the differences between socialism and capitalism make interesting conversation but just pick whatever works. 
    The ideological-left US president suddenly doesn’t have an affinity for ideology. 
    He said in the past there was a sharp division between communists, socialists and capitalists but that is merely an intellectual argument and it’s not so today. 
    “So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said at the Buenos Aires town hall. 
    “Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works.”

    Brussels and the Police State of Denial

    From Diana West:
    As Brussels convulsed in bloody jihad on the morning of March 22, 2016, Ivar Mol sent out this tweet (above). Translation from the Dutch: "How can you continue teaching when Muslims in your class are cheering?" 
    I don't know who Ivar Mol is. His twitter account identifies him as a meditation and yoga teacher. His tweet certainly caught my attention, along with that of many others, including some casting doubt on what is, after all, a rhetorical question. 
    The implications of Ivar Mol's question shouldn't be shocking, however; not at this late date. 
    From the attacks of 9/11 to Gaza every day, we should be well used to bloodthirsty demonstrations of approval for jihad carnage, as inculcated in followers of Islam by every single authoritative Islamic (not "radical" Islamic) text. 
    That is not to say that many among us will not be shocked -- if they ever even hear of such things. 
    As Islam drives deep into the West in this latest cycle of Islamic jihad, there is ever-present in the West a yeoman effort by governments to protect us not from the sharia culture that creates, enables and prizes jihad, but rather from the dread contagion of "Islamophobia" -- a made-up "disease." 
    The horror of catching it (i.e., reacting with perfectly normal alarm to such cataclysms as mass Islamic immigration) drives our elites to suppress all facts about Islam, jihad, dhimmitude, and the rest, lest people act to secure their Judeo-Christian-humanist-civilizations against Islamization. 
    Lest people vote for responsible patriots calling for closing their borders to Islamic immigration, from Donald Trump in the USA, to, for many years, Geert Wilders in the Netherlands. Less than an hour ago, Ivar Mol sent out a new message (below).

    Translation: "Three police officers at my door because of my tweet this morning. Asked if I would be willing not to do it again."

    ... this Yoga teacher may be one of the few people left that understands the value of freedom of speech and the dissemination of true information in a democracy, but he did a radio interview, in Dutch, for all to hear.
    With this tweet it all began: ‘How can you teach if Muslim children applaud?’ Ivar Mol, you tweeted this at what time?
    About nine o’clock this morning. I teach at home. It hasn’t got anything to do with this school. I teach a.o. yoga. I was sitting behind my computer, saw the first messages after the attacks. A number of those messages came from teachers in Brussels. They said their pupils were cheering in the schoolyard. The school hadn’t opened yet, but they were cheering on the schoolyard already.
    I read the same on several Belgian forums. That people in the quarters [immigrant neighborhoods, ghettos] saw the same thing in their areas: children cheering with joy.
    That surprised you?
    Yes, it did. Nobody reacted to it. Normally Twitter starts spewing on such a topic. Then another teacher tweeted that he opened his class and the children came in, celebrating. That’s when I wrote that tweet: how can you teach when children, Muslim children, sit cheering with joy in their classes? That is a question.
    Which was picked up immediately and retweeted many times. And resulted in three police officers knocking on your door.
    Yes, at a quarter past nine. I’d begin my own lessons here. I had two people for a yoga class. I had no idea what was going on on the Internet. About one in the afternoon the doorbell rang. Three uniformed police officers were at my door. They said: ‘We are here on the orders of the mayor of Breda personally. We want to ask you not to tweet this kind of topic. That’s very awkward for us, and we have better things to do.’
    It wasn’t quite intimidating, but… well, actually, it was.
    Three officers on your door, when did that happen before?
    So it was really intimidating?
    Yes, it was somewhat intimidating. Those two yoga students were scared as well.
