He states the obvious concerns about thousands of jihadists to a disconnected mayor. What a stooge.
He might as well be an apologist for these jihadis. Using the problem to excuse the problem.
Score for Piers Morgan and sanity.

Recent comments by Dar al-Hijrah Imam Shaker Elsayed endorsing female genital mutilation as “the honorable thing to do” reportedly is prompting calls within the congregation for Elsayed’s ouster.
The Falls Church, Va.-based mosque is among the area’s largest, so the conflict attracted Washington Post coverage Monday evening. But reporter Abigail Hauslohner repeatedly lost focus, cramming in references to the “right wing” organization which flagged the Elsayed video and to increased hate crimes targeting Muslims.
The undoctored video showing Elsayed’s comments about female sexuality was posted by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which focuses on Islamist extremist rhetoric throughout the world. MEMRI is a non-partisan organization that has been quoted by international media thousands of times and also works with governments that span the political spectrum. In the interest of disclosure, Investigative Project on Terrorism Executive Director Steven Emerson served on MEMRI’s board for several years until recently resigning. Accusing MEMRI of being right wing — in a deliberate effort to discredit the widely praised international organization – tells you more about the reporter’s agenda than anything else.
The tape accurately reflects Elsayed’s comments – Dar al-Hijrah acknowledged this by issuing an apology. It vehemently rejected as offensive Elsayed’s claim that failure to clip a girl’s clitoris leads to “hyper-sexuality.”
But that wasn’t enough. After reporting about calls for Elsayed’s firing, Hauslohner again diverted a story about an extremist statement from an imam to an entirely separate issue.
Yeah, speaking as a religious community leader, he said something horrifying, the article implies. But, other people do horrible things, too!
Hauslohner invoked hate crimes statistics and last week’s murders in Portland of two men who defended a hijab-clad woman and her friend from a white supremacist lunatic. And she cherry-picked one overheated Twitter comment, noting that the writer’s avatar was a Trump-Pence campaign button.
That was relevant. Previous Elsayed statements showing a pattern of radical thought, however, were not mentioned.
In addition to his FGM advice, Elsayed dove headlong into anti-Semitism when he recently preached that peace with Jews is impossible, because they “will not deal with you fairly and squarely,” another MEMRI dispatch reports. Deception “is in the genes, it is in the blood,” he said in the video posted to the mosque’s YouTube channel Friday. Jews “have killed three prophets before, and they sent the fourth to the Romans to kill him or crucify him.”
Speaking to a student group in 2013, he said Muslims were first in line when there is a need for giving – for things like prayer, charity and community service. “But,” he added, “they are last if anything is being distributed, unless it is arms for jihad,” Elsayed said. “We are the first to rush and run to defend our community and defend ourselves. The enemies of Allah are lining up; the question for us is, ‘Are we lining, or are we afraid because, because they may call us terrorists.'”
In 2004, while serving as a top official with the Muslim American Society (MAS), Elsayed praised Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna in an interview with the Chicago Tribune. Al-Banna, who created a movement bent on creating a global Islamic state, offered “the closest reflection of how Islam should be in this life,” Elsayed said.
The article’s focus was on the Brotherhood’s secret American network. MAS, the Tribune reported, was the Brotherhood’s U.S. branch.
Two years earlier, Elsayed defended suicide bombers and the reverence they receive as “martyrs.” Speaking in Arabic at a conference MAS organized with the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), he decried the label “suicide bombers” as unfair. “Nobody who is not Muslim has any right to decide for us, we the Muslims, whose is a martyr or another. We as Muslims will decide that. It is in-house business.”
When Muslim honor is violated, he added, “Jihad is a must on every man, every child and every woman. [They have to make Jihad] with every tool that they can get in their hand. Anything that they can get in their hand they should fight with it. And if they don’t have a weapon in their hands, then [they will fight] unarmed.”
Shaker Elsayed is the story, or at least he should be. The Post’s “Yeah, but” approach deprived readers of significant and relevant context and hid the fact that, for 15 years, he has harbored and espoused the most radical ideology.

When the left desperately try to frame even this problem as some attack on Muslims or Islam is too rich. The press will do it for them, no problem. So it’s us, the sharia and Islam resisters that are the problem — not what they are actually doing. Hard to believe that media in a free country would choose to take that route.
Islamic State supporters are celebrating the recent terrorist attack on London, England, distributing propaganda images via their social media channels calling for “no compromise.”
The propaganda image depicts the silhouette of a man with a knife against the backdrop of a burning Tower Bridge (Tower Bridge, located close to London Bridge, is often confused with the latter — ISIS’s propagandists appear to have made the same mistake).
The Pope hits the road to Egypt, which especially lately has been paved with Christian persecution by those underappreciated peaceful Muslims. According to CNN :
That history will provide the Pope an opportunity to plead, again, for nations to open their borders to migrants fleeing violence in the Middle East, a stance that puts him at odds with populists in the United States and Europe.
The meetings with prominent Muslim leaders, including the Grand Imam of the venerated al-Azhar University, offers a chance for the Pope to continue an oft-overlooked aspect of his papacy: his outreach to Muslims. [more]
But Francis walks like an Egyptian as Pope. So he’ll make sure to get in his digs, mainly to the West, that opening our borders to migrants from the Mid-East will purify our hearts. If only we would open up to 12th century barbarianism, we’d be the better for it.
When do we stop playing by the Muslims’ Rules for Radicals book?
Anyway, Francis is on the road again. Does he learn, like the first Francis, that you cannot appease these people? Let’s see how empathetic he is for victims of Palm Sunday.
Remember, Hamid Karzai, the former president of Afghanistan? Hamid Karzai Tweets out after the MOAB was dropped.
It didn’t take long for the poppy of corruption in Afghanistan to play the humane card, from the opium capital of the world.
“I vehemently and in the strongest words condemn the dropping of the latest weapon, the non-nuclear bomb, on Afghanistan by US military.
This is not the war on terror but the inhuman and most brutal use of our country as a testing ground for new and dangerous weapons.
It is upon us, Afghans, to stop the USA. “ — Hamid Karzai tweeted
Where do you start with a statement like that?
How about from the beginning? In the strongest words he condemns this. He couldn’t be more against our actions. Thanks for admitting, at least, that it is a non-nuclear bomb. So it could have been worse, Hamid the horrible.
Then he condemns it on humanity grounds. He has some nerve talking about humane actions compared to the 9/11 terrorist attack on innocent civilians. That which caused the long overdue response to Afghanistan, after refusing requests for its cooperation through official channels. That inhumane response, even to 9/11 attacks?
Now that last part requires just a little extra attention. He calls on Afghans to “stop the USA.” I didn’t know the Resistance movement had expanded to Afghanistan now?
Lest Hamid the turncoat forget, may I remind him that mission, goal sentiment is exactly what caused the ‘War on Terror’ road show all those years ago — spawned right from his back yard in the terrorist haven, Afghanistan.
I think we have the moral high ground and victory here. Playing the ‘humane card’ from the abyss in Afghanistan, how about that? Priceless.
Huamne is not your strong suit, Karzai. But neither is “stopping the USA.”
Trump reportedly backing off of executive order
Leo Hohmann — WND
President Trump has decided not to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, at least for now, according to published reports citing pressure from the U.S. State Department and the King of Jordan.
Anonymous sources told the Washington Times that the administration “backed down from a plan to designate the Brotherhood” after an internal State Department memo advised against it.
The State Department’s argument – put forth in a memo to the White House – comes down to a belief that there is actually more than one Brotherhood and that one side is not as bad as the other because it works through democratic processes in the Middle East, the Washington Times reports.
Yet, it’s always been known that the Brotherhood operates on multiple levels.
According to scholar Martin Kramer, the Muslim Brotherhood from its early days had “a double identity.” Kramer, as quoted by Discover the Networks, writes:
“On one level, they operated openly, as a membership organization of social and political awakening. [Founder Hassan] al-Banna preached moral revival, and the Muslim Brethren engaged in good works. On another level, however, the Muslim Brethren created a ‘secret apparatus’ that acquired weapons and trained adepts in their use. Some of its guns were deployed against the Zionists in Palestine in 1948, but the Muslim Brethren also resorted to violence in Egypt. They began to enforce their own moral teachings by intimidation, and they initiated attacks against Egypt’s Jews.”
Former Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., one of the earliest advocates of banning the Brotherhood in the U.S., describes it as “the mother lode of global terrorism.” She told WND President Trump is unlikely to be successful in defeating Islamic terror without confronting the head of the snake.
“It is the umbrella organization from which all terrorism flows because the Brotherhood’s goal is global Islamic rule,” Bachmann told WND. “It’s no coincidence that every terrorist act stems from the same Muslim Brotherhood motivation: Global governance under Islamic Shariah law.”
Again with the anonymous sources but, that aside, it is a reminder of the real problem. Sound familiar? Of course it does. The Muslims play the notion to the hilt that on one side there are terrorist Islamists while on the other there are those peacenik Muslims. Which ones are the activists? That would be the terrorist, caliphate ones — including ISIS, al Qaeda, Taliban et al. It’s blatantly obvious the peaceniks are not the activists, else they would be at odds with Islamist terrorists. But that disagreement and conflict is strangely missing, which is part of the problem.
It would be hard to imagine the “Shining city on a hill” — as Reagan coined the US — being the biggest promoter of abortion on the planet, if it is to remain true to that notion. But no, it doesn’t make sense. Nor does it make sense not to label a terrorist organization a terrorist organization, one with ties deep into this “shining city on a hill”.
Let’s boil it down to what this whole assorted affair is about — and I mean all the political dissent and consternation. Well, it is pretty simple.
It is really just two things. Almost all of the hyper political climate and fear mongering is over Obama’s legacy of disaster and 2)his last famed achievement, the Iran deal.
That too simple? Some might say duh, we knew that. Maybe, but it really is that simple. At least that is all that is driving it — aside from some powerful egos marinated in Obama’s legacy of lies. I mean what would you expect from those people surrounding the Captain of Treason?
Remember the schoolyard meme that one person is merely putting down another in order to build himself up? That must be an elementary lesson people learn. In this case, it’s one Obamafiles need to fully utilize — to preserve all that they did.
Or as Steve Bannon told CPAC “if you think they are going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken.” They aren’t. “Everyday it is going to be a fight.”

Several intelligence insiders have come forward over the past few days to describe a “shadow government” of Obama holdovers leaking information to derail the Trump presidency, with National Security Adviser Mike Flynn’s resignation their first great success.
There are even allegations that former President Barack Obama himself is actively involved, citing his establishment of a command center in Washington and continuing involvement with activist organizations.
Retired Lt. Colonel Tony Schaffer, formerly a CIA-trained defense intelligence officer, said in a Fox Business appearance on Wednesday: “I put this right at the feet of John Brennan, and Jim Clapper, and I would even go so far as to say the White House was directly involved before they left.” He also mentioned Ben Rhodes:
Schaffer said it was clear that sensitive information that could compromise U.S. intelligence-gathering methods was divulged to the media as part of the campaign to bring down Flynn, by people who had access to beyond Top Secret material. That should narrow the list of suspects considerably.
The Washington Free Beacon quoted “multiple sources in and out of the White House” on Tuesday to describe a “secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran.”
Since all news coverage is now driven by leaks of dubious accuracy from anonymous sources seemingly above evaluation, it seems only fair to entertain some insiders who wish to leak on the leakers.
According to the Free Beacon’s sources, the Obama loyalists are highly organized, under the direction of former Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, famed for his ability to sell false narratives about Iran to credulous reporters. His critique of media types as young “know nothings” whose only experience “consists of being around political campaigns” would seem validated by a press corps that eagerly runs with just about anything an anonymous source hostile to Trump feeds them.
Rhodes shoveled a lot of manure to cultivate the Iran nuclear deal, and he is not going to let it go without a fight. According to the Free Beacon’s sources – one of whom is identified as a “veteran foreign policy insider who is close to Flynn and the White House” – Flynn was targeted because he was preparing to “publicize many of the details about the nuclear deal that had been intentionally hidden by the Obama administration as part of its effort to garner support for the deal.”
Another official who purportedly sits on the National Security Council said “the drumbeat of leaks of sensitive material related to General Flynn has been building since he was named to his position,” and his resignation was “not the result of a series of random events.”
“Last night’s resignation was their first major win, but unless the Trump people get serious about cleaning house, it won’t be the last,” warned a third source, suggesting these Obama loyalists are just getting warmed up.
Here’s what frames it in context — aside from the fact this author is not calling it a shadow government. Proof of that seems to be in the pudding. (daily)
Obama officials are waging war on the Trump White House.
For a president who has a uniquely hostile relationship with the press, positive news cycles are both rare and fleeting. The Trump team displayed remarkable discipline by refusing to step on the president’s well-received address to a joint session of Congress. A lot of good discipline did them. Just 24 hours after Trump’s address, a series of troubling reports involving links among those in Trump’s orbit to Russian officials reset the national discourse. Those stories make for a trend, though, that has little to do with Trump and a lot to do with his predecessor. The Obama administration’s foreign-policy team seems to be campaigning to rehabilitate itself one leak at a time, and the press is helping.
The frenzy on Wednesday night began with a revelation in the New York Times that members of Barack Obama’s administration had left a trail of breadcrumbs for investigators who happen to be looking into the Trump campaign’s contacts with the Russian government. The report revealed that intelligence officials intercepted communications between Russian officials and “Trump associates,” and that the administration worked frantically in the final days to ensure those revelations could not be buried and forgotten after they left office.

Donald Trump may be busy but so is the Democrat Left.(what remains of the political left) While Trump works long days on his agenda for the people — who elected him by 306 electoral votes — the fiction writing, revisionist Left is as busy creating a means to oppose him. Though there is a deeper reason why they oppose him.
Obama’s agenda needs to trump reality for Obamafiles to succeed.
See, they are not happy with opposition alone but set their sights on undermining, destroying, ousting or overthrowing him. And that, according to their radical base, is “by any means necessary.” Labeling these conspiracy theories is dangerously naive.
Sure they have openly called for and mentioned a slew of hopes and schemes, including political ones for the midterm elections. But the threats that are far more credible, in my opinion, are the ones many people want to poo-poo.
According to the author above, the theory goes that there are nine designated Obamafiles to cover the tracks and rewrite the dismal mess of foreign policy failures they made of things. Cleanup in isle one! From Syria to Yemen, and Ukraine to Iran, and all their applied negligence along the way. Protecting the Iran deal is job #1.
There is one solution, besides rewriting history, to divert all attention to Trump. Then to photoshop Trump into the entire foreign policy picture. Yes, remember Ben Rhodes also has that idea of journalists as young and pliable know-nothings, which he can lead on Obama’s narrative. They can write it as fast as media can report and cover it.
That only begs the question: does media realize it is being led on this narrative? They have yet to ask Obama and his people any questions. Did you notice how quickly the N Korea nuclear issue became an “immediate short-term” crisis? They dispensed Obamafiles to news channels to defend the Obama legacy by setting off all these alarm bells about immediate problems across the globe. Meanwhile, applauding their foreign policy disaster.
But while the Iran Deal from Hell was being negotiated, no one could say anything about the problems or what to do about them because, in their minds, everything hinged on securing Obama’s legacy deal. Of course, there was no time for anything else. They only cared about one thing, and sacrificed everything else in order to get it. Never mind that it was a failure too. Even liberals are restless and tired of defending Obama’s record.
As every group has a de facto leader, the comrade in charge of the nine elite Obamafiles is fiction writer Ben Rhodes. It only makes sense. He in turn would answer to Valerie Jarrett and Obama. This group would be the lead defenders for Obama’s holy grail, his legacy. As Iran is the living monument of that, it requires lots of protection — by any means necessary. Russia is just a choice diversion.
What is odd here is that for years Obama refused and avoided any action toward Russia in hopes of getting the Iran deal done. In Syria, he did much the same: he ignored Iran’s meddling in Syria and elsewhere, with their agents of terrorism that flows across the Mid-East. He would not upset that to get an Iran deal done. So basically he sold us and our security out to terrorism, in order to get his deal. Now we know that; the intelligence community has to know that, Iran knows that, and Russia knew that.
The irony is Obama needs an entire apparatus(Shadow Gov) to protect his legacy of lies.
This is something we need to get used to. It’s not going away. If I read one I read five articles just today that concluded this is not going to change. This is what the left is. They are in perpetual protest.There always has to be something to protest. It’s how they get what they want, how they exist.
However, now they are merely doing it to protect their legacy of policy failures. The problem is that the left does not understand the whole paradigm. They see one thing at a time and that’s all they care to see. They don’t care about the big picture so it’s a challenge just to break through. It is on the media, it is that way to youth and a whole lot of regular working people. So Bannon is right, we have to fight this thing and this mental subterfuge every day and not fall for the simple, colorful narrative.

Obama loyalists still at CIA fuel radical Islam
Jerome R. Corsi | Infowars.com – February 16, 2017 | Infowars
WASHINGTON, D.C. – It’s time to “drain the swamp” at the CIA, as former CIA Director John Brennan, a clear Muslim sympathizer, packed the agency with Obama loyalists determined to bring down the Trump administration.
Looking for anti-Trump leakers, President Trump needs to be as concerned about the CIA as the NSA.
Few remember that it was John Brennan’s private security company that was responsible for the breach of State Department files which sanitized the passport records (still never seen by the public) of presidential candidate and then-Sen. Barack Obama prior to the 2008 presidential election.
On March 21, two unnamed contract employees for the State Dept. and a third were disciplined for breaching Obama’s passport files. Two were found to be employees for Stanley, Inc., a security firm based in Arlington, Virginia, that was headed by former CIA agent John Brennan, who was then serving as an advisor on intelligence and foreign policy to Sen. Obama’s presidential campaign.
Brennan was an undergraduate at the American University in Cairo in the 1970s, where he studied Arabic. In 1976, he voted in the presidential election for Communist Party USA candidate Gus Hall. He speaks Arabic fluently, having served in the CIA as station chief in Saudi Arabia.
On Feb. 13, 2010, as President Obama’s chief counterterrorism advisor in the White House, Brennan hosted a public forum, co-hosted by the White House Office of Public Engagement and the Islamic Center at New York University, where he quoted a lengthy statement in Arabic which he didn’t translate for his English-speaking audience.
How come no one in the media ever talks about the real problem? Press is supposed to be our fourth estate, what keeps the public informed and the national conversation honest. (I know, but that’s the ideal you hear)
The poster child of this is the travel ban that got so much media attention. They decry it as a Muslim ban for one thing. It isn’t. How many Muslims have freely come and gone through America while this supposed Muslim ban was enacted?
Delta also has a major computer malfunction meltdown causing chaos and confusion. No, no one said that, media hardly paid attention to it. Instead, they only called Trump’s Executive Order “chaos and confusion.” So a major airline grounds itself but they are worried about 109 people scrutinized in their travel, from seven selected countries — now that is real chaos and confusion.
Protesters swarm airports causing chaos and confusion while protesting, you guessed it, the “chaos and confusion.” The protests that have gotten all too common. At the drop of a hat, Soros protesters descend. Please, anyone care about the real problems?
I have a suggestion for media and people from these affected countries. If you have a ISIS caliphate operating within your borders, you might need to be on a travel bad. Just saying.
Start with the real problem. Rather than anyone blaming America or the Executive Order; why not blame the real source of the problem? Why can’t they blame the root cause? Islamists, a caliphate and terrorism are the reasons such an order was necessary. They are the source of all the trouble. But they cannot address the fundamental problem.
And the people who are affected by this travel ban should look at the real source of their problem. If we were honest and faced the problem that way, we would realize what the real problem is. We must blame and aim at the radical Islamic terrorists and the terrorist, ISIS caliphate. To blame anything else is just a diversion from the truth. Deal with that problem and the other ones go away. But the left cannot seem to wrap it’s collective mind around that.
How about they go protest ISIS, terrorists, Islamists and Sharia-pushing clerics who created the reason for wide concerns? No, they’d rather blame a plan, they’d rather blame President Trump, blame racism, blame America….or anything but the real cause.
Listen to one of our own about how it is in one of those so-called “banned” countries.
That’s the way it is there. And they have problems with what we are doing in the USA?
One thousand chapters strong across America with 400 thousand members, ACT has been speaking out on the issues of Islamic Radicalism within our borders and beyond.
So it is only natural they had a curious eye on the inaugural events. Guess what they found at one of the services?
(ACT)On January 21st, the noble occasion of Interfaith National Prayer Service at the Washington National cathedral was poisoned by the presence of a radical Islamic cleric named Mohamed Magid.
The attendance of Magid at this occasion to honor President Trump and Vice President Pence, clarifies with absolute precision, how close the tentacles of radical Islam can stretch towards those with the very task of eradicating them.
Magid serves as the executive director of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center and is the former executive director of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which according to declassified FBI memos, acted as a Muslim Brotherhood front group as early as 1987.
Magid has endorsed sharia governance, and the establishment of an Islamic caliphate. To advance his dream of a caliphate, Magid believes in incremental infiltration of both government, and the media.
A 1991 document from ISNA’s mothership, the Muslim Brotherhood, stated “its work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”
The Muslim Brotherhood also considered Magid’s ISNA as “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”
Given these facts, a man as dangerous and radical as Magid should not be allowed anywhere near the President of the United States.
Magid, and many others like him, are crafty characters who understand that by attending this noteworthy event, they can now claim innocence from radical ties since they were seen attending an interfaith prayer service with the President of the United States.
This is why eradicating the stealth jihad is one of the most critical aspects of the war on terror. While combatting ISIS is paramount, we must open our eyes to the infiltration taking place within our own borders.
Always trying to innoculate themselves against the boilerplate of radical Islam. If they wanted to try so hard not to represent themselves as radicals, then why are they engaged in proliferation of radicalism, as radicals? Of course truth and honesty are also their enemies, so it figures they would try to represent their real cause as harmless.
My friend, Pepp, recently reminded me of a scripture I think also apples here.
1 Peter 5:8
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
I thought ACT explained Islamists’ rationale very well. Just being seen at events is an attempt to normalize the very type of people who mean us harm.
This is all part of the greater problem I have tried, very hard, to write about. That is they are opportunists, in the same form of other radicals in our country. And they seek to extort every opportunity they can find. It is what they do.
…in their policy of bigotry.
Obama, let the door hit you on the way out.
H/T to Act for America
Let me check my end of the year list, not quite complete:
I mentioned the hypocrisy of the left.
I mentioned the evil nature of the Left
I mentioned the inability of the Left to relate to real, working people.
I mentioned the arrogance of Obama, Hillary and Democrats.
I mentioned how we are worse off now, practically than ever in history.
The world is more dangerous now than before Obama controlled the White House.
I wrote about reasons for supporting Trump, and some of the problems coming.
I mentioned what Islamists are doing to threaten and bring down America.
I mentioned political correctness, the favorite tool to push the Left’s agenda.
I said a lot about Russia, and where politicians failed to confront serious threats.
I talked about Christian victims and the Islamic agenda.
I mentioned most of the problems with ISIS and the caliphate.
I mentioned the stupidity of Democrats and some Republicans.
I mentioned the failure of the establishment and leaders to take people seriously.
I covered the mockery of Christians and their values everywhere.
I talked about the absurdity of the claim Trump was wrong for Christians.
I listened to all their absurd arguments on….well, everything.
I dignified their bafoonery by just talking about their schemes and motives.
I tried reasoning with the unreasonable Left.
I pointed out ruling class elitists and establishment don’t get it – and don’t care.
I’ve given much more time an energy to it all than they really deserve.
As to conclusions, well, that’s a deep subject. If enlightenment was the age of reason, then we are now in the age of anti-reason. That’s the point: the left no longer wants to explain, or even defend, what they do.
They just claim it is their inherent right to force their political ideology on everyone. And it is a political ideology. The harder it is forced down our throats the better they like it. The people who preach tolerance actually do not want to get along with anyone. Conflict is their means and their motive. Have you ever heard people talk so much about revolution while they were actually in control?
Hope and Change
Change is coming, change happened; but the naysayers are still wallowing in their denial. For eight years they talked about hope and “change.” Now it finally happened and boy are they pissed. We proved they really wanted no change at all, only total control.
Why didn’t they just say that instead of claiming to want change? Change you can believe in was total control, which is the only thing they do believe in. But total control does not require belief… only submission.
After the election, they are still campaigning only to overturn the results of the election. So they appeal to electors to overturn the results of the electoral college. They are never really satisfied, even when they get what they want. Or especially when they get what they want because then they just want more.
Hillary’s campaign and Democrats now complain about the influence Russia had in the election — or how much it hurt her. But then they claim Hillary won the popular vote by almost 3 million people. What is their point? So maybe they mean Russia hurt her electoral college path. Hmm, how’s that?
What about the Russiaphobia they spread about Trump? Do they care what effect that had? How about when Mike Morell, former CIA director, called Trump an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation? Do they really want to talk about the Russian effect? How about when they claimed Trump could not be trusted with the nuclear codes? But Hillary had a rogue server risking national security but they are talking about threats? Nuclear. The idea was to present Trump as a bigger security threat than Hillary.
What have we learned? As Solomon said, there is nothing new under the sun. Any means to their ends — or to clarify it, their means has no ends. Yet it is an incomplete list.
Now Michele Obama is out of hope, once again. No longer is she “proud” of America.
Fleeting pride didn’t take long. It makes me wonder what her hope was really in?
Feelings, “nothing more than feelings”:
[ABC]Obama said Russian President Vladimir Putin “is well aware of my feelings about this, because I spoke to him directly about it.”
Obama declined to say how the U.S. planned to respond, but White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday that Obama believes in a “proportional response.”
President Obama, the guy who promised Putin more flexibility in his second term, now says he told Putin to “cut it out” on DNC and Hillary’s campaign hacking. He warns the cyber threat is real…like the Russian threat, Syria, ISIS, and a near-term North Korea problem — all second only to that immediate Climate Change threat. Check!

Fake news alert: No assault, no victim, no news…. no phony racist attackers.
She made it all up — and now she’s under arrest.
The Muslim college student who claimed she was harassed on the subway by three men who shouted “Donald Trump,” called her a terrorist and tried to rip her hijab off her head has admitted to detectives that she concocted the entire story, the Daily News has learned.
“Nothing happened — and there was no victim.”
Where are the people who are worried about fake news. How about fake victims?
So her freedom of speech apparently includes filing false police reports.
Hey, fake news media, I got your “fake news” right here!
CNN tried to help Obama explain his legacy in an interview with Fareed Zakaria.
“The ability of ISIL[sic] to not just mass inside of Syria, but then to initiate major land offensives that took Mosul, for example, that was not on my intelligence radar screen,” Obama told Zakaria.
Oops, cleanup in isle one. Anyone would have to ask “what the hell else was not on your intelligence radar screen? And why the hell wasn’t it?” Not Fareed.
But don’t expect his sycophant media darlings to breach that deep subject with him. It was similar to his statement that his big error was not having a “day after plan” for Libya. He drops these assertions then….silence.
We know at the very same time his intelligence radar was failing, he was dismissing the threat of the ISIS caliphate by calling them a JV team, making excuses for them, and instructing us that they are not Islamic. Or he was engaged in arguing against people — lecturing us on — using the term “radical Islamic terrorism.” He was lecturing Christians about the Crusades and our lack of love. Most of which he took great pleasure in.
What was going on there besides his malfunctioning radar screen? It was that he embarked on a misinformation campaign about it all. It seems to reveal he did know but was in denial and trying to deceive us about it. Obama’s fellow travelers were also busy saying that our real threat was not from ISIS — and their vast network of sympathizers — but from “homegrown,”white Christian terrorism. Aka “Look over there, don’t look at Islam.”
That was all part of Obama’s misinformation campaign he rolled out on America while the Commander-in-Chief’s radar screen was supposedly on the fritz.
So he didn’t know or realize the threat of “ISIL” in real time. Normally he has to find out things from the media, first, and then be reminded while discussing his legacy.
Obama parses the damage by explaining it this way:
“Have we been flawless in the execution of what is a complicated policy in the region? Absolutely not. I think flawless is not available when it comes to foreign policy or the presidency, at least with mere mortals like me at the helm,” he told Zakaria. “But have we made, I think, the best decisions that were available to us, at each stage? The answer is yes.” – more
Still he claims to have made the best decisions… at each stage, even with a radar malfunction. Is he contemptible? Now we are being lectured about fake news stories.

Pollster and political analyst Pat Caddell discussed results from the latest Breitbart News/Gravis poll on Thursday morning with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow, saying, “In particular, I’m fascinated with this refugee question. We’re seeing great opposition even among large numbers of Democrats and Hillary voters against the refugee expansion, which the mainstream media basically doesn’t cover.”
“It didn’t get a lot of play, or at least coherent play, in the debate,” continued Caddell. “That’s about sixty percent” opposed to the expansion of the program.
Caddell also pointed out that about seventy percent of those polled opposed the United States “relinquishing its management” role with the Internet, seeing it as “a really bad idea.”
About half of respondents saw it as “another sign of American weakness.”
I guess they will have to come up with some new names to demonize them.
Hungary has drawn criticism for favoring Christian over Muslim refugees from Syria and Iraq.
This week, Hungary, which has during the past year come under pressure for its handling of Europe’s mass migration crisis, has become the first government to open an office specifically to address the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Europe.
“Today, Christianity has become the most persecuted religion, where out of five people killed [for] religious reasons, four of them are Christians,” Catholic News Agency (CNA) quoted Hungary’s Minister for Human Resources, Zoltan Balog, as saying. “In 81 countries around the world, Christians are persecuted, and 200 million Christians live in areas where they are discriminated against. Millions of Christian lives are threatened by followers of radical religious ideologies.”
Yet at the same time, many of our leaders like Obama and Hillary Clinton, along with countless subordinate officials, refuse to call them Radical Islamic Terrorists.
But they have seen fit to condemn the Crusades or criticize Christians whenever possible. And they do throw around words like Islamaphobia to describe their own political critics.
Faced with confronting ethnic or religious cleansing, they cannot be forced to utter the words radical Islamic terrorists. That could offend Muslims. But they can call out critics of their refugee policy that caters to Muslims as bigots. These leaders and officials worry about families of illegal immigrants or Muslims being ripped apart byt the rule of law, yet cannot condemn the slaughter of Christian families and cleansing in Iraq and Syria.
At least Hungary can call it out and recognize it — for the human rights catastrophe it is.
Hillary is like the first female ambassador of ISIS. She aided in creating ISIS. Now she claims they are rooting for Trump to win. Why would they do that, when no one did more for their efforts than Obama and Hillary?
The result was that the western part of Iraq once again became fertile ground for an Islamist insurgency. ISIS swept western Iraq because of the failures of Hillary Clinton and her boss, President Barack Obama.
But that is only half the story. ISIS also exists in Syria. How is it that the United States allowed it to survive there? Lee Smith, at Tablet magazine, points out that letting Syria fester was the intentional policy of the Obama administration — in order to cosy up to Iran.
Probably the scariest part is that she falls for propaganda and apparently gave up critical thinking some years ago. Now she says trust her to protect America’s interests.
For someone who will not say ISIS terrorists are Muslim or Islamic, she claims they are praying to Allah over Trump. I bet they are secretly hoping for Hillary — in their Islamic way — who’s been very, very good for them.
Conclusion: Hillary needs to be put out to permanent pasture with her hubby, Bubba and fenced off from public service, ever.
It’s about time. Maybe at least it will end his commentary supporting Islamic radicalism?
By Bryony Jones, CNN — Bryony Jones is a journalist at CNN International in London.
(CNN)A notorious hate preacher who led a flag-burning demonstration outside the US embassy on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and voiced support for jihad has been convicted of inviting support for ISIS.
Anjem Choudary, 49, has courted controversy over two decades, skirting the edges of the law, backing extremism but with no proof of actually inciting violence. He earned the wrath of Britain’s tabloid newspapers, making him – by his own admission — the country’s “most hated man.”
In 2014, he pledged allegiance to ISIS and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, bringing him under scrutiny and leading to his arrest. […./] “
But the sentence is only up to ten years. Is it time for life sentences in these cases? This does seem punitive, when they can also have a radical recruitment effect in prison.

Thursday’s shocking Palestinian terrorist murder of a 13-year-old girl prompted the usual praise from Palestinian Authority (PA) outlets. Muhammad Taraireh was hailed as a martyr for stabbing and murdering 13-year-old Hallel Ariel, a U.S. citizen, as she slept in her bed.
“Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Taraireh, who carried out today’s operation in which one female settler was killed, and a male settler was injured,” read the post on Fatah’s Facebook page and translated by Palestinian Media Watch.
The terrorists’ mother said her son made her “proud” and called him a hero and a martyr. “Allah willing, all of them will follow this path, all the youth of Palestine,” Taraireh’s mother told a local Hebron news outlet.
This brutal murder comes shortly after Abbas’ senior advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein called for Palestinians to decapitate innocent Israelis. “Every place you find an Israeli cut off his head,” said Al-Einein.
The terrorists’ family will now begin receiving monthly payments that the PA pays to all terrorist families.
Blatant praise for terrorists is expected from Palestinian officials and significant segments of the Palestinian population. Yet the silence emanating from the broader Muslim world following such brutal attacks is similarly disturbing.
In a blog posted by The Times of Israel, Muslim interfaith activist Nadiya Al-Noor blasts Muslim hypocrisy in the context of Palestinian terrorism.
“I have seen firsthand the casual, destructive anti-Semitism that plagues the Muslim community,” she wrote. “I have heard it from the mouths of our religious leaders, from our politicians, and even from our otherwise peaceful, liberal Muslim activists. I have witnessed in horror the desperate attempts to justify Palestinian terrorism from people who I once respected. Why? Why do we decry all other types of terrorism, but bend over backwards to legitimize violence against Israeli Jews?”
Too many Muslims seek to justify such terrorism by citing the Israeli “occupation,” relying on “anti-Semitic lies fed to us by Al-Jazeera” such the canard that Israelis seek to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Al-Noor wrote. Too many Muslims refuse to refer to Israel by name and proclaim that “Resistance is not a crime!“
Yet Al-Noor bravely opines “stabbing a little girl to death in the one place where she was supposed to be safe is certainly not “resistance.”
“We’ll stand up against the persecution of Christians, atheists, Hindus, Shias, Ahmadis, and anyone else who is persecuted,” she wrote. “We will sob to the heavens if a Palestinian is killed, but when it comes to Palestinian terrorism against Jews, we either turn a blind eye to it, or we twist the story to make the terrorists into the victims. This is unacceptable.”
“When you make excuses for terrorists, you support terrorism.”
Al-Noor’s observations directly relate to strategies adopted by U.S. Islamist organizations, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which routinely condemns acts of terrorism worldwide – but never when it comes to Israelis.
Well, a reminder of that other post showing Muslims sending money to the family of the Orlando terrorist shooter. It is the remaining silent part that screams out at the civilized world. How can you sit there and remain quiet while others do this in the name of your religion? (and some cheer then send money)
Even when they do speak up, it is token sympathy as if they feel obligated to just make a statement to absolve themselves. Then turn a blind eye to jihad practice by ignoring it.
If the world were waiting for the Muslims to resolve it they’d be waiting a long, long time. So-called good, peaceful Muslims leave it to the rest of the world to face or combat it and, frankly, I’m sickened by that.
