Iraqi Muslim Who Bought “I’m Muslim, Don’t Panic” T-Shirt – Gets Savagely Beaten by Fellow Muslim Migrants

The reason other Muslims would beat this man is because by declaring, "I'm Muslim, Don't Panic," this man has openly proclaimed that he is in violation of the Koran's command that Muslims "STRIKE TERROR INTO THE HEART OF THE INFIDEL."

From The Daily Mail:
An asylum seeker who jokingly wore a T-shirt saying ‘I’m Muslim, don’t panic’ was so savagely beaten by his fellow refugees that he had to be rushed to hospital. 
The 23-year-old Iraqi had thought that his fellow Islamic asylum seekers would see the funny side, but instead they accused him of offending their religion and decided to teach him a painful lesson. 
The man was attacked in the evening as he returned to his asylum seeker home in Berlin, Germany wearing the T-shirt which he had just bought. 
He was allegedly confronted by three angry Muslims who ripped up the T-shirt and ran off after beating him. 
Two of the alleged attackers, a 27-year-old from Syria and a 33-year-old from Lebanon, were later arrested on charges of aggravated GBH. 
Police said a report would be prepared for prosecutors.

Fuck You, You Can Go To Hajj For All I Care

The Concentric Circles of Hell

So it appears the lucrative hajj is now in play as opponents seeking control of their holy places vie to make up for recent losses in oil revenue, given the impact of Western energy competition, ever expanding wars (jihad at home and abroad) as well as costs associated with keeping the House of Saud's '79 pledge to commit oil profits to sufficiently fund globally expansive dawa & which snowballs in concert with the massive hijrah to the EU and increasingly drains reserves.
Perhaps one begins to recognize the reasoning (dual-loyalties) behind the current-occupant-of-the-oval-office's ineffectiveness in his WoT while simultaneously encouraging the chaos in the ME.

As a side note, J.B.Kelly's '79 essay "Of Valuable Oil and Worthless Policies" makes for an interesting history lesson.

Meanwhile, Turkey puts the $queeze on EU in the deal of the century ....by making the EU cough up ever escalating amounts of jizya under the guise of managing the flood of migrants (hijrah).
3/8/2016 Reuters: Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told EU leaders that Ankara was willing to take back all migrants who enter Europe from Turkey in future, including Syrian refugees, as well as those intercepted in its territorial waters.

However, that means EU agrees to double funding through 2018 to help Syrian refugees stay in Turkey and a commitment to take in one Syrian refugee directly from Turkey for each one returned from Greece's Aegean islands.

AND EU leaders agreed to the earlier target date (June) for visa-free travel.

That EU jizya pays for stuff like:


SUPER rich villagers have refused to accept ANY asylum seekers instead choosing to pay a £200,000 fine. The 2,200 residents of the exclusive resort of Oberwil-Lieli, Switzerland held a referendum to reject a government quota.

The ONLY PLACE IN THE WORLD?!...fools if they think £200,000 fine is cast in cement...jizya by any other name...resurrect the "Just Say No!" response and mean it!

Comment - Any government which forces the parachute of "asylum seekers" into a neighborhood with the threat of a fine is no longer a legitimate government. Legit governments do not run extortion rings. 

Taxes are not fines; it is a legal means to maintain a government. The anti-migrant fines are extortion. Hence, this is government oppression of the native born.

Why Trump Won the Republican Nomination

From Ace of Spades:
Trump won because when a Native American activist (posing as a journalist) declared that "Pocahantas" was "very offensive" as used in regard to Elizabeth Warren -- dishonestly, I might add, as everyone knows the term is used to deny she's an Indian, not to denigrate her as an Indian, and everyone knows this, and only a liar pretends otherwise -- Trump did not begin falling over himself to make apologies and keep the well-wishes of the increasingly unreasonable left-wing hegemony. He just began making fun of the stupid silly bitch for being a stupid silly bitch. 
People are fucking tired of walking around on eggshells and being made to apologize for every fucking goddamn thing in the world. And what we increasingly want is a political leadership that tells the Grievance Mongers and Offense Farmers to shut the fuck up and get bent rather than explaining to them how a Conservative Version of Political Correctness Can Achieve All the Good Things That Liberal Political Correctness Can Achieve, But Using Market-Based Mechanisms. 
It's time to stop fucking about it. I'm tired of it, and I know millions of other people are tired of it too. So I don't give a fuck anymore if some dishonest bitch dishonestly feigns offense over the term "Pocahantas." 
It's time to start treating them as what they are -- dishonest liars trying to control you. 
And it's time to start treating them as straight up internal enemies. 
We tried it polite. We've been falling all ourselves for 30 years to try to convince the increasingly extremist left wing assholes that we're not all the foul things they call us. 
It's impossible -- their jobs, their income, and their government subsidies depend on us being treated as second-class citizens and beasts for taxation. 
It's about time we woke and realized they cannot be convinced, because they never really believed their bullshit anyway, it was always for the purposes of exacting rents out of people and making them knuckle under.

The Emperor's New Vagina

"If You Refuse To Cast Praise Upon 
My Beautiful New Vagina, 
You Are a Bigot"

From The American Conservative:
In a Congressional hearing yesterday concerning the Obama administration’s “guidance” that public schools have to let trans students use locker rooms, bathrooms, and so forth, or lose federal money, California Democrat Zoe Lofgren gives us a taste of what’s to come. 
From HuffPo’s slanted coverage (but the quotes are accurate; watch the video above): Lofgren criticized the submitted testimony of Gail Heriot, of the United States Commission on Civil Rights, who spoke as a witness during a Wednesday House Judiciary Committee hearing on regulatory overreach. 
Heriot argued that trans people shouldn’t be accepted as the gender they identify with, saying, “If I believe that I am a Russian princess, that doesn’t make me a Russian princess, even if my friends and acquaintances are willing to indulge my fantasy.” Lofgren was not having it. 
“I’ve got to say, I found this rather offensive, and it says to me that the witness really doesn’t know anything and probably has never met a transgender child who is going through, in almost every case, a very difficult experience finding themselves,” Lofgren said. 
“I think it’s very regrettable that comment was put into the record, and I think it’s highly offensive,” Lofgren added. 
When Heriot tried to respond, Lofgren shut her down. 
“I think you’re a bigot, lady, I think you are an ignorant bigot,” Lofgren said. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) halted Lofgren’s remarks, declaring her “out of order.” 
But the congresswoman didn’t back down from her criticism. 
“We allow witnesses to say offensive things, but I cannot allow that kind of bigotry to go into the record unchallenged,” Lofgren said. 
“Does that mean you think I am a Russian princess?” asked Heriot. 
“I have no idea,” Lofgren responded. Lofgren, plainly, is an ignorant bigot. Ignorant, because she professes agnosticism as to whether or not the witness sitting in front of her is a Russian princess, and a bigot because she believes any questioning of the trans dogma, even in the name of biological reality, is HATE. 
Understand: for the sake of achieving a left-wing goal, powerful politicians like Zoe Lofgren, who represents Silicon Valley, are prepared to call anyone who denies that the Emperor actually has a vagina an enemy of the people.

Saudi man shoots male doctor for assisting wife's labor

Saudi man shoots male doctor for assisting wife's labor
The pair proceeded to meet in the hospital garden to talk about the delivery when the father unveiled a firearm and shot at the doctor, seriously wounded him. 
The father ran from the scene but Saudi police later arrested him. Health workers transferred Al Zabn to the hospital’s intensive care unit but he is now in a stable condition. 
Bassam Al Buraikan, spokesperson for the King Fahad Medical City hospital confirmed the incident to Gulf News and said that authorities were conducting an investigation using evidence from the scene of the shooting. 
The incident divided opinion online, with most supporting the doctor but some questioning why the father was put in such a position. 
One Twitter user wrote: “Just when you thought ‘jealousy’ can’t get worse.” 
A prominent Arab Twitter user Ahmad S. Algarni asked why the hospital did not meet the request of the jealous father.

Swedish Girls Blamed for Steep Climb in Migrant Sexual Assaults

Only Whores Cry For Help

In Muslim society, they blame the woman raped for having been raped.

And now they do it in Sweden too.

Pre-emptive surrender to Islam.

From The Express:
SWEDISH police have blamed Scandinavian teenage girls’ “Nordic alcohol culture” and Western behaviour for a steep rise in sex attacks carried out by migrants. 
The damning police report, which is looking at why Sweden has the worst rates of physical and sexual violence committed against women and girls in Europe, has also excused refugees who it says “cannot handle the alcohol”. 
Shockingly, the report revealed the majority of sex attack victims were under the age 15. 
Police also admitted the majority of attacks have taken place in public places had been committed by migrants. 
But it says refugees might not be able to “handle the alcohol” and simply feel “horny” and have “ignorance of the consequences for the girls”. 
The report also warns that girls in Sweden are called “whores” and abused for “their clothes” which leaves many too scared to walk the streets.

Paul Ryan Tells Sean Hannity He Will Not Support Any Cuts To Muslim Immigration: ‘That’s Not Who We Are'

Paul Ryan: "I'm Not Gay!"

THIS is what the GOP is willing to go to war over.

They have a candidate who is WILDLY POPULAR, but the GOP doesn't like him.



The GOP's got a fevah, and the only prescription is ....


From Breitbart:
In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Ryan declared that considering an applicant’s religion would not be “appropriate” and would be fundamentally un-American— insisting “that’s not who we are.” 
In his question, Hannity asked Ryan point blank about some of Sessions’ recent analysis. Hannity said: 
We have resettled 1.5 million Muslim migrants in the United States. Senator Sessions had put out a piece where all these people that we took in to the country then come here and then get involved in terror activity. I put it up on my website, I urge you to take a look at it. And we take in 100,000 Muslim immigrants into the United States every year. Do we have to think about somebody who grows up under Sharia— believes that women can’t drive, can’t be seen in public without a male relative, four eyewitnesses for rape— do we have a clash of cultures we’ve got to consider? How do we know if they want to assimilate? How do we know if they want to bring terror into the United States? How will we ascertain that? 
Ryan replied: 
Well, first of all, I don’t think a religious test is appropriate. That’s not who we are. We believe in the first amendment of religious freedom. And I don’t think it’s the appropriate test because anybody can come under the guise of something else. It’s not hard for a person to claim that they are something that they’re not— like a Christian or something like that to get into the country. That is why we are calling for a security test. I think the test that maters is a security test because anybody can try and infiltrate this country by posing as something that they are not, so I don’t think that’s the proper test. I think a security test is the proper test.

Game Over: EmailGate Just Crippled the Clinton Express

From the Observer:
... there’s the troubling matter of EmailGate, the long-running scandal that this column has covered in great detail. 
That Ms. Clinton and her senior staff misused email during her tenure as secretary of state has long been crystal-clear. Refusing to use government email for government work was a violation of policy, while Team Clinton’s routing of said emails through a private server, then putting classified information on it—including above top secret information from the Intelligence Community—looks like a violation of several federal laws.
Early denials from the Clinton camp tried to make the entire matter go away, insisting there was no “there” there. Once that folded in the face of massive evidence that something indeed had gone very awry with Secretary Clinton’s emails at Foggy Bottom, the excuses shifted to ones familiar to those who experienced the 1990s. Everybody does it. It’s not really a big deal. Above all, this is politically motivated. These false accusations are the machinations of a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. 
Such dodges held water for months among Hillary fans, aided by parts of the mainstream media which, long accustomed to running interference for the Clintons, continued to do so, attempting to muddy waters that to those familiar with laws and regulations on the handling of classified materials are actually decidedly clear. 
That all fell apart yesterday with the release of the long-anticipated State Department Inspector General’s special report on how Foggy Bottom handles email records and cybersecurity. A shoe has dropped for Team Clinton—a very big shoe—and there will be no going back now. 
The Office of the Inspector General at State, as in all federal departments, exists to ferret out internal fraud, waste and illegalities. However, State had no real IG boss from 2009 to 2013, with an acting director heading up the office. Neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton were in any hurry to find a permanent director for State’s IG shop. Now we know why. 
The State IG report, weighing in at over 80 pages, is crammed full of bureaucratese yet paints an indelible and detailed portrait of things going very wrong at Foggy Bottom—especially under Hillary Clinton. It can charitably be termed scathing, and it leaves no doubt that Team Clinton has lied flagrantly to the public about EmailGate for more than a year. 
That said, only Hillary Clinton simply refused to use government email for government work—she repeatedly denied requests from State security and IT to use state.gov email—and she systematically dodged federal regulations on electronic communications and records preservation by setting up her private email server of bathroom infamy. 
Damningly, while several former secretaries of state cooperated with the IG in this important investigation, Ms. Clinton refused to. 
As secretary of state, Ms. Clinton attempted a novel experiment of trying to avoid using any information systems that create records that can be subject to the Freedom of Information Act. The IG report includes painful details, including how she flatly refused to use state.gov email for anything, ever, citing privacy grounds. State IT was concerned because Ms. Clinton’s work emails—all being sent via her clintonmail.com address—were winding up in the spam folders of State officials. Important information was not getting where it needed to go. She needed to use official email for official business. Except she refused. 
What was so important, so sensitive that Hillary had to dodge FOIA altogether? Clearly protecting her private life—whatever that might be—was valued more highly by Ms. Clinton than actually heading the Department of State.

HERE'S WHY TRUMP IS WINNING: GOP House Codifies Obama's Transgenderism in Dark of Night

This is not the first Obamination the GOP has caved into. This is just one in a very long series of acquiescences that, in their totality, must be called AGREEMENT.

The GOP is a clear and present threat to the nation, and must be destroyed.

From the Conservative Review:
Many are asking what Republicans plan to do to stop Obama’s executive war on culture and religious liberty in pursuit of cultural Marxism. Now we know that not only will this party do nothing to stop Obama, it will use its control of Congress to codify Obama’s agenda into law. Late Wednesday night, Republicans allowed a vote on an amendment from Rep. Sean Maloney, D-N.Y., which codified Obama’s executive order 13672 making transgenderism the law of the land.  
Obama’s executive order, promulgated in July 2014, instructed bureaucrats to sever contracts with companies that don’t follow the Obama-mandated sexual identity agenda. This could include companies that don’t allow men into women's bathrooms in their private corporate offices. 
The Maloney amendment to the $37.4 billion FY 2017 Energy & Water Appropriations Bill (H.R. 5055) codified that unilateral act into law. 
The amendment passed 223-195 with 43 Republicans supporting it. The GOP House just supported arguably the most radical Democrat agenda item in the dead of night. 
Defenders of House leaders will contend that leadership had to allow this amendment to come to the floor. After all, they promised an open amendment process and they just couldn’t stop all the RINOs in the conference from voting with Democrats. 
This argument is weak on many counts: 
1) GOP leaders are forever blocking key conservative initiatives and legislation in order to violate the GOP platform; certainly they can block an anti-religious liberty transgendered amendment from Democrats to protect the integrity of the GOP-controlled House. Could you imagine Democrats allowing an amendment to pass on an issue that violates their very essence while they are in control of the chamber?
2) GOP leaders are always twisting arms to get conservative members to vote for bad bills. Somehow we are to believe they were impotent in ensuring “moderate” members (what is moderate about transgenderism?) adhere to the party’s platform? 
3) The reality is that Paul Ryan has long been a supporter of ENDA (Employment Non Discrimination Act), the legislative vehicle for enshrining transgenderism into law and mandating adherence to its dogma on private businesses. That is why he’s been absent in this fight. Moreover, Republicans have failed to allow a single anti-religious bigotry bill to the floor since the illegal gay marriage decision was issued by the Supreme Court, despite the ubiquitous threats against private businesses, states, and private property. Clearly, whipping against this vote was not a priority. 
Once the Maloney amendment passed with GOP votes, Republicans proceeded to do what they always do so well. They offered side-by-side amendments in an attempt to cover up the damage. They passed the “Pitts amendment” as a second-degree by voice vote to affirm the constitutional importance of religious liberty. Then they passed the Byrne Amendments to reaffirm that RFRA is still in place and the government cannot discriminate against religious individuals. 
Well, as we all know, the Constitution and RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) have been in place for the entire Obama administration, yet he is still able to get away with religious bigotry edicts by claiming they don’t interfere with religious beliefs. 
Enshrining Obama’s specific edict into law and then passing vanity language reaffirming the general importance of religious liberty is like doing CPR on a dead body. 
To begin with, this entire spending bill was something that should never have come to the floor. It increased spending and retained a number of green energy programs for a department that shouldn’t even exist. 
The sad reality is that Republicans will wind up passing a continuing resolution or an omnibus in September and will jettison even the few good provisions they secured in these individual spending bills. As such, the only remaining purpose of spending weeks passing these bills (that will go in the garbage anyway) is to draw a sharp contrast with Democrats on important issues in the news and drive a wedge between the Left and the voters. 
Now that they are using this process for just the opposite purpose – to codify the most pernicious agenda of the left – why not abort this wasteful process anyway? Why not focus on slam dunk winning legislation if they are not going to use the power of the purse? 
Now that leadership has loaded this already sub-par spending bill with transgenderism, conservatives should vote against final passage on Thursday. It’s bad enough that a Republican House cannot be used as a tool to go on offense against cultural Marxism and anti-religious-liberty initiatives. To pass a bill placing an exclamation mark on that agenda is unforgivable.

Al Qaeda Magazine, "Inspire", Encourages Muslims To Murder Americans In Their Homes


Said a MEMRI analysis: “The issue … provides detailed information and instructions on preparing for and carrying out various targeted assassinations. It stresses that an assassin should possess different options to carry out an attack, which gives him or her a greater chance for success, and elevates the operation to a more ‘professional’ level.”

Another magazine section is devoted to bomb-making, a AQAP specialty. The cell has been trying to develop bombs that a can defeat airport security screening.

The "Conservatives" in The GOP Have Gone Over to The Other Side, and Are Now Contributing To The Rising Tide of Fascism in America


Cuck Shapiro

Thank God we have such reasonable "Conservatives" to talk some fucking sense into us.

Brad Thor and Glenn Beck advocate the assassination of Donald Trump.

Cuck Shapiro is playing Toilet Boy to his FagHag girlfriend, Michelle Fields, who has convinced him that Big Daddy Trump abused her, when in fact, it's just her fantasy that men will abuse her, and to get little bitches like Shapiro to listen while she complains/fantasizes about her abuser.

Listen, my friends, we've got a real problem on our hands in this country. Donald Trump had a rally last night in New Mexico, and "Activists" threw firebombs and overturned Police Cars.

Today, the "Activists" tried a similar strategy in Orange County, California. But the Police came prepared. GET THIS, they brought in reinforcements from LA County, Ventura County, and Santa Barbara County to help them with Crowd Control.


If you were to get on the Freeway in Anaheim, California where this Trump rally took place, and you were to drive to Santa Barbara, California to pick up the Police they used to back up the Orange County Police, it would be a six hour drive there and back.

It's three fucking hours away on the fucking freeways.

Think about that.

The Police reinforcements drove three hours to Orange County, which is itself a very sizable area, with many, many, many, many, many, many Police at their disposal.

But Orange County needed more cops, more cops more cops, from LA County, Ventura County, and Santa Barbara County.



These "Activists" and "Conservatives" are on a Fascist binge of violence and hatred, and they feel absolutely entitled to be so.

And that is because their friends in the Government-Media/Academia Complex tell them it is ok.

It is not ok.

Imagine how much money is being spent on all those Police.


Today the head of the TSA testified before Congress and admitted to our Congressmen that he uses large amounts of man hours doing searches at "events outside his Core mission" as his questioner put it.


All because we have Activists and Jihadists who are tolerated in this nation, even while our fellow "Conservatives" fret that TRUMP is the Fascist.


How much money do we have to spend to make sure that some Fascist does not kill one of our Presidential Candidates, or blow up our children at a Rock Concert?

And, THINK ABOUT THIS: The signs at the Trump Events, the signs held by the "Activists" who throw firebombs and beat people and overturn Police cars, THOSE SIGNS ARE PROFESSIONALLY MADE.


These people are professional Activists. They are being funded in their "Activism" by someone with a lot of money. This is an organized Fascist Army hellbent on the destruction of a candidate We the People voted for.

This "Activism" is not mere protest. It is very possible that what we are witnessing here is an attempt to normalize violence, in the interest of bringing about the assassination of a leader, a kind of pre-emptive Coup d'Etat.

In other words, it is highly possible that what we are witnessing is SEDITION.

And at this point, every fellow "Conservative" who badmouths Trump, and speaks of replacing him, is only adding to the momentum, and the hostility and the justifications for this SEDITIOUS BEHAVIOR.


Guess Who? – The Albuquerque Trump Protests Were 100% Organized Political Astroturf…

Washington Times:

Hillary Clinton failed to report several hacking attempts, grew afraid of opening emails

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a secret email to conduct official business broke a number of department policies, an inspector general concluded in a report sent to Capitol Hill Wednesday that also suggests she used the account to try to hide her communications from the public.
The 83-page report, obtained by The Washington Times, is devastating in its evaluation of Mrs. Clinton's behavior, saying it can find no record of her getting approval from either security or legal staffers for her unique arrangement. The report also undercuts many of her campaign's explanations for her use of the system, dismisses comparisons to her predecessors' email use, and points to repeated hacking attempts that she failed to report.
After one of the 2011 hack attempts Mrs. Clinton's tech staffer shut the server down for a few minutes, hoping that would solve the situation, but quickly warned top aides not to send Mrs. Clinton "anything sensitive" after the attempted breach, according to the report, which was obtained by The Washington Times.
After another suspicious attempt Mrs. Clinton said she was scared to open email — but failed to report the matter.
"Notification is required when a user suspects compromise of, among other things, a personally owned device containing personally identifiable information," the investigators said. "However, OIG found no evidence that the Secretary or her staff reported these incidents to computer security personnel or anyone else within the Department."
At one point in 2010, Mrs. Clinton's emails were ending up in subordinates' spam filters because they were coming from a non-state.gov account. One of her top aides urged her to sign up for an official account or letting everyone in the department know of her address so she could be added as a verified account, but she refused, saying she didn't "want any risk of the personal being accessible."
In 2011, technology staffers proposed giving her an official department Blackberry to replace her personal device, which was malfunctioning. The staffers said she already had an official account, used to maintain her calendar, but said using it for email would make her messages subject to open-records requests. Her top personal aide, Huma Abedin, rejected the suggestion, saying it "doesn't make a whole lot of sense."
Mrs. Clinton, in a striking move, refused to cooperate with the probe. All of her colleagues did: current Secretary John Kerry and former Secretaries Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and Madeleine Albright.
Mrs. Clinton's staff was also reluctant, the investigators said. Her chief of staff, deputy chiefs of staff and her technology gurus all refused to cooperate with the probe.
The emails have proved damaging to Mrs. Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Her campaign didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday morning, but her spokesman posted a Twitter message saying the report "makes clear her personal email use was not unique at State Dept."
Mrs. Clinton has said her use of the secret email account was not a good choice, but has insisted she did not break any laws and did not risk secure information.
The new report lays out many of the details of Mrs. Clinton's server. The domain name clintonemail.com was registered on Jan. 13, while she was still serving in the Senate and before she was confirmed to be secretary on Jan. 21.
State Department staffers were repeatedly asked to help solve problems with Mrs. Clinton's server and her devices, such as her Blackberry — particularly in trying to communicate between her secret address and the state.gov accounts used by most of her subordinates.
But the inspector general was unable to discover who gave the final approval for Mrs. Clinton to use the odd arrangement. The department's legal office said it was not asked to review or approve the setup, and was unaware of anyone else approving it — though some of them did email Mrs. Clinton on her secret account.
Democrats have pointed to Mr. Powell, who also used a personal email account while at the department, as precedent for Mrs. Clinton's actions.
"The Inspector General confirmed what we have known all along — that Secretary Clinton followed the practice of her predecessor when she used a personal email account," said Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee. "While Secretary Clinton preserved and returned tens of thousands of pages of her emails to the Department for public release, Secretary Powell returned none. Republicans need to stop wasting taxpayer dollars singling out Secretary Clinton just because she is running for President."
But the inspector general said the IT environment was fluid during Mr. Powell's time in office, and had firmed up substantially by the time Mrs. Clinton took office.
During her tenure, the department specifically warned employees not to send information deemed "sensitive but unclassified" outside of the internal network, and said if they needed to do so, they should speak with tech staffers to work out a solution. Mrs. Clinton never did so.
"OIG found no evidence that Secretary Clinton ever contacted IRM to request such a solution, despite the fact that emails exchanged on her personal account regularly contained information marked as SBU," the investigators said.

Talk radio host Glenn Beck and best-selling author Brad Thor believe the only way to get a President Trump out of office is for a “patriot” to apparently kill him.
Appearing on Beck’s radio program this morning, Thor said:
I am about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer.
With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitution-mandated authority as president, I should say.
If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office, because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.
Beck responded, “I would agree with you on that.”

Turn this headline around and just IMAGINE

Obama pushing Israeli military leaders to buck their government
U.S. President Barack Obama is encouraging Israeli military leaders to oppose the “politically paralyzed” Benjamin Netanyahu by running for office on their own in order to effectively change the nation’s policies.

According to congressional sources, Obama has “wooed” the top leaders of Israel’s military and defense establishment to support his plan to establish a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Jerusalem, Middle East Newsline reported on May 18.
Obama, in an interview with journalist Jeffery Goldberg, referred to Netanyahu as “one of his deepest disappointments” in the Middle East, being “too fearful and politically paralyzed” to advance the peace process.

Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren responded by telling The Algemeiner: “Really? Netanyahu is one of Obama’s ‘deepest disappointments’ as a Middle East leader? More disappointing than Syrian President [Bashar] Assad? Than former Iranian President [Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad? Than ISIL chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi?”

Just imagine Benjamin Netanyahu urging General Mattis to interfere in the electoral process of the democratic or republican party. Or more intensely Stanley McChrystal, because Barack Obama was deeply disappointing in his support for one of the smallest nations on earth, and the smallest ally the USA has, and one of the most valuable technically and geographically.

Just imagine the headlines

Just imagine the cartoons.

Just imagine the columns

But for the ‘smartest man in the room’ when he looks in the mirror he sees no exception for the USA, just one FOR HIS UNSPEAKABLE AND UNLIMITED ARROGANCE

The Transgender Movement Is About The Destruction of the Sexual Distinction, The Foundation of Family

From The Public Discourse:
As usual, tyranny comes disguised as “civil rights.” 
The latest exhibit of this general rule is President Obama’s directive that seeks to force a transgender bathroom, locker room and dorm policy on the entire nation, starting with schoolchildren. 
Many of us are taken aback by this news, but we really shouldn’t be. The order is merely the latest incarnation of a long line of social engineering. The goal, as is always the case with such movements, is to remake humanity. 
What the people behind this latest version won’t tell you is that their project requires each and every one of us to deny our own humanity. Let me explain. 
The transgender movement has never been about “gender.” It’s all about sex. Sex is the real target. “Gender” is merely the politicized linguistic vehicle that facilitates a legal ban on sex distinctions. 
There aren’t a whole lot of dots to connect to uncover the logic of where this leads: if you abolish sex distinctions in law, you can abolish state recognition of biological family ties, and the state can regulate personal relationships and consolidate power as never before.

Why Are So Many Muslim Refugees in Europe Suddenly Finding Jesus?

From The Daily Beast:
AMSTERDAM — Hundreds of Pakistanis and Afghans have been lining up at a local swimming pool in Hamburg, Germany, to be baptized as Christians. In the Netherlands and Denmark, as well, many are converting from Islam to Christianity, and the trend appears to be growing. Indeed, converts are filling up some European churches largely forsaken by their old Christian flocks. 
All of which raises a question, not least, for the United States: If American presidential candidate Donald Trump gets elected and bars Muslims from entering the country, as he says he will, would the ban apply to Christians who used to be Muslims? How would one judge the quality of their faith? 
For the moment, that quandary is a ways off for U.S. Homeland Security, but in Europe even now the phenomenon is fraught with echoes of the past, problems in the present, and omens for the future. Forced conversions of Muslims and Jews during the Spanish Inquisition were a dark page in Europe’s history. 
More than a little suspicion surrounds some of the current conversions, seen by some to be cynical bids to improve the chance of getting asylum. And, looking forward, it’s potentially quite dangerous for those who embrace the Gospel to return to homelands where abandoning Islam for another faith can be treated as a capital crime. 
Still, many preachers are pleased. The German pastor of the Evangelical-Lutheran church in Berlin calls the conversion phenomenon “a gift from God.” In his modest community a staggering 1,200 Muslims, mainly Afghans and Iranians, converted in just three years. 
In Hamburg, where German ARD TV showed the Pakistanis and Afghans lining up to be baptized by the pastor of the Persian Church community, more than 600 people reportedly were received into the congregation. 
There is no reliable overall figure for converts in northern Europe, but judging by reports from different media outlets, it is safe to assume the number runs into the thousands, maybe even tens of thousands who say they want the Gospel, “the good news,” offered by Jesus Christ. 
One young Iranian woman convert told the German news magazine Stern, “I’ve been looking all my life for peace and happiness, but in Islam, I have not found them,” Another convert told Stern he had found in Christianity an element—love—that was missing from the faith he was brought up in. 
“In Islam, we always lived in fear,” he said. “Fear God, fear of sin, fear of punishment. But Christ is a God of love.” 
Many evangelical communities today take a more pro-active posture. They approach their work with missionary zeal and, implicitly if not explicitly, may link aid to conversion. In the Netherlands and other Northern European countries, such churches are very active giving refugee assistance. They encourage refugees to accept Jesus in their lives and embrace the Gospel of Love. 
At the same time, they offer free Dutch lessons and may invite refugees for a temporary stay in Dutch Christian homes. In many cases this is the first and the only glimpse refugees get into Dutch society outside the boundaries of a camp. 
The Dutch New Life Evangelical community in Alphen aan den Rijn reportedly saw 50 new converts added to its ranks in one year. “They were touched by God’s word during the prayer sessions,” Pastor Ab Meerbeek told the national newspaper Trouw. Most are from Iran and Afghanistan. They listen to the sermons translated in Farsi on headphones.  
Whatever the reasons are for Muslim refugees to embrace Christianity, their conversions may endanger them if asylum is refused and they are sent back to their countries of origin. And contrary to popular belief, conversion to Christianity can actually damage one’s chances of asylum in the Netherlands. 
“It does not help people, because the Dutch authorities tend to distrust swift conversion,” said Scholte. “It can work against you when you are seeking asylum.” In Germany, conversion can work to a refugee’s advantage. “Members of our community are almost always granted asylum,” Pastor Gottfried Martens of the Berlin Evangelical-Lutheran Church told BZ Berlin. “They can’t go back without danger to their lives in their home country as Christians.” 
This paradoxical fact—converted Christians are more likely to be persecuted than those who stay Muslims, and are thus more eligible for asylum—may explain part of the recent surge in conversions.

The Free Trade Proponents’ Arguments-Get Ready, Trump

Having been a strong proponent of free trade, I have this thing now, it’s called using inarguable evidence to adapt my worldview.

I also have this other thing, rejecting the manner in which the USA has conducted free trade does not equate to bringing back Smoot-Hawley.

Free Trade’s promise, for those of you who weren’t aware in the 80′s time frame was that much cheaper consumer goods would increase the purchasing power of the everyday consumer, thus the disposable income, and we all would be happy and have more money.

In 1980 the price of a Ford Fairmont made in Michigan (mid sized vehicle)was $4,890  Today the bottom end of the Ford Fusion line $22,110. It is made in Mexico.

In 1980 the median income was $16,671. In 2014 it was $53,013.

In 1980 a Ford Fairmont made in Michigan was 29% of income.

Today a Ford Fusion from Mexico is 42% of income.

But what is median income?
And you have all seen this:
So as manufacturing of the single item that stood for US dominance has moved with labor the costs of free trade (which is PHYSICS, not politics, if you embark on free trade), the price gain of free trade is NEGATIVE ($ -17,220) in both absolute and relative terms. Worse still, while you are paying nearly HALF of a year’s income now, for your car made in a nation whose per capita income is 1/5 of the USA’s, the odds are your ability to come up with that sum have SINCE THE 1980′s become MORE UNFAVORABLE unless you are in the top 20% of earners.

Free Traders argue there is no way  to buck this, and workers should be retrained and be prepared to give up their way of life and family and move to where other jobs are (Hillary - ‘we are going to put a lot of coal mines out of business’).

Free traders however, want BOTH an economic world without borders, and a military world with invulnerable ones.

Since, unless rapacious taxes are the goal, the disposable income of the middle class is the marker of govt revenues which are then collected to be spent in part on military/defense goals, and since free trade CRUSHES this marker, the free traders are OUT OF THEIR MINDS.

Since labor costs have decreased, taxes in other nations are lower, real estate is almost always less, and costs of doing business are much lower, but prices are not, where is the margin gain going?
Boards? Dividends? Cash retained? Top management? Stock buybacks (from who?)
Am I sounding like an economic radical now?

The arguments now being made AGAINST moves away from free trade as we have practiced it are:
It will be a tax on the poorest
This is the same argument originally made IN REVERSE in favor of free trade that the consumer would benefit from lower prices of goods made overseas. We do NOT have lower prices anywhere, and it should be obvious that WELL OVER AND ABOVE automation productivity gains we have traded careers and INDUSTRIES HERE, for purportedly lower price increases in the jobs and industries moving to other much lower cost nations. Except there are no lower prices, and price increases continue as overseas workers want better lives too.
It will start a trade war just like the 1930′s
This is not the 1930′s. This is nothing like the 1930′s. And FAIR TRADE will trade back FOR INSTANCE some lousy products made more cheaply overseas for USA industries that will provide INCREASED NATIONAL DISPOSABLE INCOME (see: Japan 1950-1979). If necessary, for strategic industries, we can just embargo certain products to ensure the demand for them is filled domestically with sliding numbers over time. What will China punish us by doing that is WORSE than this?
We cannot invent financial products on Wall Street, fatten up corporate profits with locomotives produced in Brazil (GE), make greater margin by buying in quantity from AliBaba, and then think from admin stats about a great economy this equates to the disposable income of the middle class, and motherboards for the DDG-51′s defense systems made in Texas, or North Dakota instead of Shenzhen, or Tolucca, or Singapore, or Kaohshung.

We are in a cycle of more and more demands chasing fewer and fewer financial resources.

We cannot continue.

It is unsustainable EXCEPT FOR THE FEW.

It’s time to try something else.

Free trade as WE have practiced it, HAS FAILED.

So what would West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky offer DeWalt, or Crafstman, or Milwaukee tools, to open that new tool factory right where the coal mine workers live?

Criticism Of Islam Will Not Be Tolerated

Eagles of Death Metal Dropped From Music Festivals Over Lead Singer's Comments About Muslims

The band Eagles of Death Metal, whose concert was attacked by ISIS extremists during the November 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris, has been dropped from two French music festivals after lead singer Jesse Hughes said that he saw Muslims celebrating following the massacre.

The band was scheduled to play at the Rock en Seine and Cabaret Vert festivals later this summer....

Those who push back against the narrative of "Islam means peace" will be punished.

Goodbye Pork Pie Hat

When Charlie speaks of Lester
You know someone great has gone
The sweetest swinging music man
Had a Porkie Pig hat on
A bright star in the dark age
When the bandstands had a thousand ways
Of refusing a black man admission, black musician
In those days they put him in an underdog position
Cellars and chittlins'
When Lester took him a wife
Arm and arm went black and white and some saw red
And drove them from their hotel bed
Love is never easy
It's short of the hope we have for happiness
Bright and sweet love is never easy street
Now we are black and white
Embracing out in the lunatic New York night
It's very unlikely we'll be driven out of town
Or be hung in a tree that's unlikely
Tonight these crowds are happy and loud
Children are up dancing into the streets
In the sticky middle of the night
Summer serenade of taxi horns and fun arcades
Where right or wrong under neon every feeling goes on
For you and me the sidewalk is a history book
And a circus dangerous clowns
Balancing dreadful and wonderful perceptions
They have been handed day by day
Generations on down
We came up from the subway on the music midnight mix
To Charlie's bass and Lester's saxophone in taxi horns and brakes
Now Charlie's down in Mexico with the healers
So the sidewalk leads us with music to two little dancers
Dancing outside a black bar
There's a sign up on the awning
It says, 'Pork Pie Hat Bar'
And there's black babies dancing tonight

Parents of Two Children Killed in Paris Attacks of 13 November: We're Not Paying Our Taxes to a Government That Pays for the Upkeep of our Children's Killers

This is the Infidel Resistance we know and love.

From Le Figaro:
Some parents who lost their children in the terrorist attacks of 13 November have addressed a letter to the president of the Republic last week. They rail against the payment of the costs of lawyers for the presumed terrorists by the [taxpayers]. Wrath. 
How to survive after the death of a child? Worse, of two children? 
Wrath is necessary, Aristotle tells us: 
"One cannot win anything without it, if it doesn't fill the soul, if it doesn't warm the heart: it must then serve us, not as a master, but as a soldier." 
Driven by this struggle, the parents of two children murdered on 13 November have addressed a letter to the president of the Republic of which Le Figaro has gotten a copy. 
To Francis Hollande, they explain that if their children had lost their life, it was due to their "jihadist friends."  
Therefore, they refuse henceforth to pay their taxes "which serve to defend the killers of our children through the intermediary of the funds guaranteed to hire their lawyers, and for their upkeep as well as that of their ilk on French soil, our Fatherland!" 
They have so advised their tax collection center and placed their money in an blocked account. "You have brought them to their deaths" 
These parents, who do not wish to appear publicly, deplore "such subsidized criminals, who should never have been free and killing in the middle of the street at their whim!" Finally, according to them, their children "are dead, victims of your indulgence and interference," they write to Francois Hollande. 
In sum, it's the reestablishment of the death penalty which is demanded as the crux of this missive. And this wish to return to the law voted on in 1981 is shared by the parents of another french victim of an attack perpetrated by a foreigner. Just the same as a father of two children who lost his wife at Bataclan. 
The open letter finishes with the "shame" of being led by Francois Hollande. "Our children were voting for you, we were telling them: This man will bring you to a bad end! We didn't believe it would be so literally! You have led them to their death," it reads at its end.

Pertaining to the EgyptAir explosion theory

It was reported from multiple reliable sources today that window on the A320 were ‘open to the sky’ according to broadcast ACARS satellite data.
However, while the spreading of smoke alerts was reportedly way to fast to be a cabin fire, or electrical fire, it was also said to be way to slow for an explosion …
Back to Times Square NYC:
A street vendor spotted smoke coming from the SUV and alerted police, who quickly cleared the area. The bomb attempt set off an intense investigation that culminated two days later with investigators plucking Shahzad off a Dubai-bound plane at a New York airport.
Prosecutors had introduced a dramatic video of an FBI-staged explosion they said demonstrated how deadly Shahzad’s bomb could have been.
The FBI bomb – an identical vehicle fitted with 250 pounds of ammonium nitrate and diesel fuel, three 25-pound propane tanks and two five-gallon gasoline canisters – blew up with a force that ripped the vehicle in half. The explosion caused a giant fireball that overturned and shredded four other cars parked nearby in an open field, obliterated about a dozen dummies posed as pedestrians and shot fiery debris hundreds of feet in all directions.
This was also the case for the shoe bomber who needed a lit source to explode his bomb.
And I believe the crotch bomber who bothered the president during his holiday in HI, also tried to ignite his crotch.
The worry is that ISIS (or whoever) did NOT have an inside man to place a conventional explosive on the aircraft, the worry is that they have something we cannot yet detect in baggage or carry on.

Showing off his true colors, as usual

The far-left blogger called "Notintheface1" recently posted the following tweet after Donald Trump became GOP nominee for presidential run:

Just don't take a guy who complains about 9-11 ruining comics seriously if this is all he cares about. What a low-grade dummy indeed. Here's more of his Volkswagen-level junk:

Yeah, but you do too, "achlab" (Arabic for "dog").

Correction: here's an example of a Democrat who won't support Sanders or Clinton but whom you know damn well is going to reverse his standing by October.

How does somebody who may have said he's in his late 40s not consider the contents of the Koran?

I'll remember my reaction to his lethargic little rants as a shake of the head, because he sure does seem to consider Arabs expendable if he's opposed to bringing down a tyrant, and let's not forget his apparent disinterest in trying to discourage anybody from adhering to Islam. Just another typical far-leftist who's got no sense of chivalry.
