Know who your friends, enemies are

One of the campaign issues Trump sounded a bullhorn on, at least to evangelicals, pastors and churches, was getting rid of the Johnson Amendment.

That is the one burdening pastors and pulpits under political restrictions to the first amendment, by using 501 status as a lever against them. Holding them hostage you might say. Also placing restrictions on churches. Well, seemed popular didn’t it?

But over the years, so many have become programmed and indoctrinated to this policy. Like a lot of liberal theology, it becomes normalized. No excuses, plenty of complacency.

That’s where it is comes time to know who are your friends and who are your enemies, And so often the latter are closer than you think.

Hundreds of religious groups call on Congress to keep Johnson Amendment

Harry Farley Journalist 05 April 2017 | Christian Today

Nearly 100 religious groups are urging Congress to keep the ‘Johnson Amendment’ which limits churches’ political activities.

President Donald Trump has vowed to repeal the law which blocks ministers from endorsing political candidates from the pulpit or religious organizations from donating to either party. Many Republicans back him and argue the amendment infringes on religious groups’ free speech.

But 99 different groups have written to oppose the move.

‘The charitable sector, particularly houses of worship, should not become another cog in a political machine or another loophole in campaign finance laws,’ they write.

The strongly worded backlash comes from across the religious spectrum from The Episcopal Church and Baptist groups to Catholic, Jewish, Islamic and Hindu movements.

‘Current law serves as a valuable safeguard for the integrity of our charitable sector and campaign finance system,’ [they] say in a letter to top members of Congress.

Here they come, in the name of ‘protection.’

Or basically all your liberalized arms of churches. We know how to interpret that. Many are the proud who call for boycott, divest, and gov’t sanction actions toward Israel.

Funny, they never seem restrained at all in pushing the progressive political line in churches. That, of course, was never really restricted. We see no applied restrictions on black or leftist churches. They don’t have to worry.

Though even speaking about abortion, and protecting life, has been deemed political and too taboo for prime-time pulpits. Except if you want to protect baby killing, that’s okay.

So now they reveal who they are. Take note. They will stand and defy the action we want. Just as the sanctuary cities stand in defiance to the law and will of the people. Or should I say much like the activist, Sanctuary Churches? Get the idea? Or let them preach Climatology from pulpits. No, that is celebrated. Does that not illustrate the blatant hypocrisy of what they are lecturing us about?

Hungary to rescue Christians

The First Country to Officially Defend Christians Persecuted by ISIS

Hungary has drawn criticism for favoring Christian over Muslim refugees from Syria and Iraq.
Christianity Today

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.

Omar’s family gets donations

Muslim Community Donates $87,000 To Family of Orlando Shooter

By George Drivas – June 24, 2016 | Associated Media Coverage

According to several recent reports, the Muslim community has made a donation in excess of $87,000 to the family of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.

It’s currently unknown how the funds will be distributed, however it’s been said that the majority of the $87,000 will be allocated to Omar Mateen’s widow Noor Salman and father Seddique Mateen. Sources indicate that the remaining funds will be distributed among Omar’s siblings. Prior to distributing the donation, the Mateen family is expected to provide Omar with a ‘proper Islamic funeral’.

The whereabouts of Omar Mateen’s widow Noor Salman are currently unknown and cause for controversy as rumors of her potential grand jury indictment in connection to her husband’s June 12th shooting spree circulate…/

Hamza Aadil Malak made the following statement during his interview with Crane:

“Though we condemn the actions of Omar Mateen and will continue to stand with the victims of this unexpected tragedy, we must also stand with the members of our community. The family (of Omar Mateen) are unfortunately victims to this tragedy by association and the support we provide will be unwavering during this difficult time.”

More: http://associatedmediacoverage.com/muslim-community-donates-87000-family-orlando-shooter/

So must stand up for the family of Omar after gunning down 100 people, killing 49. That is worthy of “unwavering support.” And that is standing with their [Muslim] community?

Message received. But Islamophopbia is the problem.

I’ve had it with the anti-Islamophobes.

Muslims don’t want soldiers honored

 

Muslims Say Fallen U.S. Soldiers Should NOT Be Honored on Memorial Day

By Top Right News on May 24, 2016

by Gina Cassini | Top Right News

The Muslim Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has decided that Memorial Day should not honor those American soldiers who have died, instead, it should honor those Muslim terrorists who were killed by American soldiers.

Read more: http://toprightnews.com/muslims-say-u-s-military-should-not-be-honored-on-memorial-day/

I really didn’t have the stomach to post the whole thing. I’m sure that meshes somehow with our Mo-Bro in chief, activist and organizer.

Muslim invasion

It’s the invasion, stupid.

Conservative says Muslim Migration West is a Planned Invasion to Destroy Western Christendom!

“This clearly is an invasion. This is a planned invasion, not only in Europe but also in the United States. I believe for the specific purpose of destroying Western Christendom.” — Former Rep. Michele Bachmann

Former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is making waves (again), for her vociferous stand against the Muslim wave of migrants heading West from the Middle East and Africa. While Bachmann’s stance against Muslim immigration has been known for some time, her latest condemnation made some specific and surprising arguments – namely, that the migration was a “planned invasion” for the “specific purpose of destroying Western Christendom.”

Read more: http://eaglerising.com/30186/conservative-says-muslim-migration-west-is-a-planned-invasion-to-destroy-western-christendom/

What other reason would they have for coming, since they hate us so much?

But under this situation, the one who receives criticism is for discussing a ban on Muslims. The invasion gets none. So they’ll attack the messenger.

National Prayer Breakfast… post mosque visit

Last year at the prayer breakfast, Obama said that the violence and atrocities committed by the bands of Islamic terrorists was not unique to one faith. Then he said not to get on our high horses, lest we forget the Christian Crusades and the Jim Crow policies.

Well the problem is that this is sort of unique to this religion of Islam. Further the denial that this is unique and inherent to Islam is actually an offense of its own. It’s an assault on logic and current events.

So this year he one upped himself and planned a visit to a mosque the day before the National Prayer Breakfast. Not just any but one laden with controversy and Muslim Brotherhood ties. Why not choose another one? Well, that wasn’t the purpose.

The mission was to enunciate any friction he could while sticking it in the face of reasonable people. Like a gotcha effect. In fact, wouldn’t you think that if attempting to avoid friction, he could have made a case for speaking to moderate types he was trying to highlight? Why not give them some much-appreciated kudos for standing up to the face of radicals or Mo-Bros? No, again, that wasn’t his intent. His intent was to paint this mosque as the same as those moderates seeking reform that he was marginalizing by his visit.

So in his remarks, instead of denouncing violence and radicalization, he denounces the anti-muslim bias (which apparently is at epidemic levels in the country) Wouldn’t you think that message would have been better received in a mosque without Mo-Bro ties? And don’t look for a message like the slap in the face toward Christians last year aimed toward radical Muslim adherents because there isn’t one.

How can he manage to be any more divisive and biased himself? Again, he issued a warning to citizens to not be “bystanders to bigotry.”

“And so if we’re serious about freedom of religion — and I’m speaking now to my fellow Christians who remain the majority in this country — we have to understand an attack on one faith is an attack on all our faiths.”

Which says nothing about the specific attacks of radical Islamists, or their apologists, on Christians or others. And what did he mean by an “attack”? Have we seen an attack[s] on Muslims? This, as the rest of the world is inundated by Muslim “refugees” who consistently attack citizens of countries that welcomed them. I’m sorry, I guess I missed his central point and all those examples.

From II Timothy, Obama quotes that the Lord has not given us a spirit of fear. He turns to preaching that our fear is not of God. The day before he had been lecturing about legitimate anti-Muslim bias fears. So now he says fear does some funny things. That fear can lead to our lashing out at others. Where was his fear-warning message yesterday in preaching to Muslims at the Islamic Society? Obama may yet decide to sire a Rev. Wright-style church. Now he’s telling Christians that sometimes we have to stand up even to friends as well as others. Would that not have been appropriate for Muslims yesterday?

Al Jazeera called Obama’s mosque visit a “belated denunciation of anti-Muslim bigotry.” And they point to Islamaphobia. When fear is justifiable it is not really a phobia.

What was the central purpose in his message? Of course it was a political one, disguised as he tried to make it. Even while he was appreciating what Christians have done in disasters to help better humanity, his overall theme is co-opting Christians into his political ideology. But that is nothing new for the community organizing guru. He wants to reinforce how the left can use Christianity to its political gain.

Now he lectures that we need to respect the right of others to practice their faith freely. Well, I must have missed where we have denied someone their right to practice their faith. But I don’t remember Jihad being a right. Again, the ones denying respect are radical Islamists that attack an employee Christmas party, and plotted to carry out mass jihad. Or when Islamists tell us that America shall be under Sharia. Right, lecture us about fear. Then again, with Islamists, religion is a very political and a useful tool for terrorism.

Islam indoctrination 101

Once again, a public school firmly putting its foot down on the side of Islam indoctrination of students. Case in Maryland ignites suit.

Daily Signal

A Maryland couple are suing their county school system, the school board, and their daughter’s high school principal over what they claim was “Islamic indoctrination and propaganda” in a world history class.

John Kevin Wood and his wife, Melissa, say they are Christians and were upset to learn their 16-year-old daughter brought home homework that characterized Muslims as having “stronger” faith than Christians.

Read: http://dailysignal.com/2016/01/29/christian-family-sues-over-islamic-indoctrination-homework/

Not just “stronger faith”, but students are made to recite the profession of faith. And we know how importantly significant that is to Muslims. Order the prayer rugs.

Germany: blame right-wing not refugees

Germany invents a new blame game model to deal with “refugee” problems.

German Interior Minister: Right-Wing Chat Rooms ‘At Least As Awful As’ Cologne Sex Attacks

Breitbart | by Milo Yiannopoulos

Ralf Jaeger, German interior minister for North Rhine-Westphalia, has said that “what happens on the right-wing platforms and in chat rooms is at least as awful as the acts of those assaulting the women.”

Jaeger was distressed that the multiple sex attacks on German women by men of “Arab or North African” appearance in Cologne on New Year’s Eve might bolster the arguments of anti-immigration campaigners. “This is poisoning the climate of our society,” he said.

Frustrated German citizens were expressing horror on Twitter today that one of their elected officials would compare words on the screen to a series of attacks that includes two alleged rapes and dozens of reported molestations.

http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2016/01/07/german-interior-minister-right-wing-chat-rooms-at-least-as-awful-as-cologne-sex-attacks/

By “at least” what he means is right-wing chat rooms are more awful than the refugees’ public assaults in Germany. Speaking of “poisoning the climate”.

All of a sudden, so many official apologists for their behavior. I’m surprised Obama hasn’t chimed in yet to bash Christians. (maybe he is advising them)

The German government invited and then welcomed this situation on the people. Now, what better to do than blame the people when they complain about the toxic effects?

Obama’s perpetual defense of Islam

Best explanation yet.  He doesn’t want people to turn against Islam. Of course promoting Islam is also job #1. While promoting the US is way down on the list.

Obama: ‘Don’t turn on Islam’

Exclusive: Joseph Farah asks, ‘Why is he being so condescending to Americans?’

Joseph Farah | WND — 12/20/15

Muslim terrorists have been killing Americans with regularity going back to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, continuing through 9/11, the Boston Massacre, Fort Hood, the Beltway Sniper, San Bernardino and many other attacks in between.

Obama isn’t lecturing Muslims to stop attacks on Americans. Instead, he’s lecturing the victims not to retaliate, not to think mean thoughts about the perpetrators, not to show any signs of what he likes to call Islamophobia.

He said, in his weekly address to the nation last weekend, Americans should not turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam, because that’s what ISIS wants, because that attitude will undermine national security.

“Terrorists like ISIL are trying to divide us along lines of religion and background,” he said. “That’s how they stoke fear. That’s how they recruit. And just as Muslims around the world have to keep rejecting any twisted interpretation of Islam, all of us have to reject bigotry – in all its forms. I’ll say it again, prejudice and discrimination helps ISIL and it undermines our national security.”

Not only is Obama not taking the fight in any meaningful way to ISIS, he’s blaming the victims here at home for being angry and scared about the attacks.

Americans have been taking in the shorts from Islamic terrorists for more than 20 years, and they show no signs of going vigilante. There’s no evidence of “hate crimes” being perpetrated against Muslims in America, which is astonishing when you think about what we have endured. Yet, Americans are lectured constantly about their predilection toward bigotry.

Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2015/12/obama-dont-turn-on-islam/

I’m having a lot of trouble again. Look if they are not turning us against it based on what they are doing, and so-called moderates’ reaction to it, then I don’t know what will. If Muslims don’t care enough about that giant P/R disaster of their making, then how can we help them? How can a little truth about what is going on threaten Islam in any way if they don’t care to stop the horrors?

On the other hand, be scared and petrified about global warming and talk about the negative effects of that every chance you get — every time weather changes.

Work it into every conversation. Even get the Pope to chime in on those threats and run an ad campaign teaming up with a leading Democrat funder-organizer. Just don’t worry about the impacts of Islam on society. We don’t need to speculate about that problem. But do keep your eyes out for the Crusades, coming to a neighborhood near you.

Hate crime and bacon police blotter

Of course this must be another hate crime on poor Muslims. Someone put bacon on the door handles of a Mosque. But that is only the beginning.

Sharia in Las Vegas: Police HUNT Man Who Placed BACON On Mosque’s Door Handles

By Pamela Geller on December 29, 2015

Las Vegas, America’s den of iniquity, gambling, prostitution — you name the vice, you can buy twice. So I am bemused, though not amused, that bacon left on the door handle of a mosque has the Las Vegas Police department on a jihad to find the perps. The bacon is being investigated as a “hate crime.” Seriously. Bacon on a door handle is a crime now? Maybe in Muslim countries, but when did America decide that we would be a sharia nation as well?

Sharia in Vegas. That’s what this is. In the UK, an 18-year-old girl was jailed for this very thing. This is America, not Yemen or the UK, but not for long. And while what these pranksters did was silly, jail time? For a bad joke? Defacto Islamic law (sharia) in Las Vegas, of all places.

– See more at: http://pamelageller.com/2015/12/sharia-in-las-vegas-police-hunt-man-who-placed-bacon-on-mosques-door-handles.html/

What will this person get if caught? What is the crime here? How do they prosecute that? And what on earth do they have cops running around looking for someone like this when we have real crime taking place? What are we coming to?

Seems to me all of Americans are being victimized by Islam rather than the other way around. Now we have Al Jazeera media making a charge against Payton Manning for using steroids. Which is more offensive, planting a mosque in the middle of town or a slice of bacon on the door handle of a mosque? I want to read that police report and complaint.

I’d like to take this opportunity to applaud all the hog farmers in the US.

Favorite one-liners and reality shuffle

One of Jeb Bush’s favorite attacks of Trump is Donald’s quote “I watch the shows.” Jeb calls Trump great at one-liners but a chaos candidate. Jeb should upgrade his material.

Oh those Sunday shows. So being it was Sunday, what did I learn from the Sunday shows? Let’s take the Fox Sunday show, for example.

First, a little review. All we hear is “you must not paint all Muslims with the same broad brush.” That wouldn’t be fair. It’s hard to find a contemporary talking point older than that one. I think it started one minute after the second plane hit the WTC. So that’s not new; the media repeats that every time the subject of Islamic terrorism or Islamic radicalism comes up.(sing a long ) Now it’s a spontaneous reflex.

To my surprise on the Sunday “Show,” the subject is ISIS and Islamic radicalism with Peter King-of House homeland security where he dispels the myth of cooperation of Mosques and Muslims on the terrorism front. So they haven’t been cooperating all along and tipping us about those rogue radicals? I guess not. King tells us of a case where the Mosque actually tipped off the terrorist’s family that cops were on to him. And in two cases radicalized Muslims joined up with terrorists and no one said a word about it.

The host asked King if he knew of any case where Muslims or clergy were hesitant or unwilling to: if they “see something say something” report it? But he already proved it. He said they don’t come forward and don’t work with authorities. It’s well-known in police circles they don’t cooperate.

They went on with their panel to explore the lack of Muslim cooperation. Then he called this a “generational war.” He asked even if we destroyed ISIS, what would fill the vacuum? Gasp. He said that is the subject no one is talking about. Oh, they mean no one on air is talking about the possibilities. But people have not overlooked it. In fact, the people have been talking about all this stuff.

So there you have the crux of the issue/problem. We’ve been paying close attention all along. We’ve been following ISIS’s rise and the bonfire in the Mid East. We were watching. And we already figured out, long ago, this was a generational battle. We knew about vacuums, too. We observed that Muslims here and abroad have not been especially helpful. Media and Muslims object to our findings and observations by crying Islamophobia.

What’s the point? The lesson here is people are out in front of the news prognosticators. I mean what did we have to do to get their attention? Of course they wouldn’t listen to us. We don’t know anything. Only the media knows. Only they are informed. Critical thinking is out of vogue. But now their subtle admissions seem to lag way behind ours. And Trump is still a “racist” for calling for a ban. How do they square that?

Islam is a problem, Muslims aren’t just innocent victims, Mosques haven’t been helping, Trump has a valid point, and political correctness is not the cure but an accelarant. The religion of peace is institutionally waist-deep in civil disobedience defending radical Islamists (who don’t seem too rogue) defying our national security concerns. And we have an Islam apologist residing in the White House running cover for them all. All that is common knowledge to most coherent people, unless they live in Obama’s state of denial.

Here is part of that Sunday exchange:

MCKELWAY: Congressman, I want to turn again to terrorism on the home front. You have said somewhat controversially that we need better surveillance of mosques in the United States, quoting you. The only way you’re going to find out this in advance is to do the same type of 24/7 surveillance that was done in the Italian-American communities when they were going after the mob, mafia, and the Irish communities, when they were going after the Westies. You look at where the terror threat is going to come from. And right now it is going to come from the Muslim community. I can hear the cries of civil libertarians and constitutionalists right now, Congressman.

KING: Yeah, listen, they can cry all they want. The fact is that’s where the threat is coming from. And we can say that 98, 99 percent – of the Muslims in this country are good people. I’m actually swearing in the first elected Muslim on Long Island. She is a good friend of mine. So, this is nothing against Muslims, but the fact is that is where the threat is coming from. And we are kidding ourselves. We have this blind political correctness, which makes no sense. For instance, in Boston, with the Boston marathon bombing, you had the older Tsarnaev brother. He was put out of a mosque because of his radical thoughts and his radical statements made in the mosque, but nobody in the mosque ever told the police, nobody ever told the FBI.

Yes, we knew. But at every step we were called Islamophobic for pointing out the truth. They said we can’t blame Islam or Muslims in general even when they are intentionally complicit in terrorists’ agenda. Reminds me of the rise of the Third Reich. Media and some politicians seem to be slowly coming around – sans Obama. Denial may be wearing off.

Islam will only be at peace when everyone has converted. And that isn’t going to happen. Now in case they still want to point blame at us or Christians for this problem, Christians evangelize and Muslims terrorize. Islamists take pride in that. We are trying to defend “true Islam” when most ignorant spectators don’t even know which is the true Islam?

So what you would have been learning from these shows, mostly, is that we are racists and/or bigoted extremists for jumping to rational conclusions that stir fear about the Islam community — incidentally, one of Islam’s chief goals. Worse, for years we were told to blame everything and everyone else in the world, namely ourselves and America, for Islamic terrorism except to blame any of it on Islam or Muslims. I don’t remember them going through that tortured, fruitless exercise on Hitler and the Third Reich. (we would still be conducting that exercise)

Media double standards: unfair on CAIR

The CAIR-pandering media does not want to cover something as divisive as say moderate Muslims talking about radical Islamists. Who cares about that?

C-SPAN Accused of ‘Mainstreaming Islamist Organizations While Willfully Marginalizing’ Reformists

By Patrick Goodenough | December 23, 2015 | CNS News

(CNSNews.com) – The leader of an umbrella group of moderate Islamic organizations is troubled by C-SPAN’s decision not to cover its launch event at the National Press Club earlier this month, when on Monday the public affairs network provided live coverage to another Muslim event – highlighting “Islamophobia” – at the same venue.

Attempts to get C-SPAN to cover the launch of the Muslim Reform Movement on December 4 were unsuccessful, said M. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy and a key figure in the establishment of the MRM.

On Monday, C-SPAN covered a press conference by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its allies in the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) at which 2016 political candidates were warned that anti-Muslim sentiment would carry a cost at the ballot box.

“They are mainstreaming Islamist organizations while willfully marginalizing us,” Jasser said. “At least show both!”

CAIR and Co. Warn 2016 Candidates: Spew ‘Islamophobia’ at Your Political Peril

By Patrick Goodenough | December 21, 2015 | CNS News

(CNSNews.com) – Leaders of several American Muslim organizations warned Donald Trump and other presidential candidates Monday that if they engage in bigotry and “Islamophobia” they will pay a political price because Muslim voters – in the words of one – will mobilize and “make sure you are out of there.”

“Let it be heard, and clear, to all political candidates, be it Donald Trump or whoever else, that indeed, if you engage in Islamophobia, if you engage in demagoguery and bigotry, you will pay a political price,” American Muslim Alliance director Mahdi Bray said at the National Press Club.

“Because we’re going to register our people and we’re going to use our ballot and we’re going to ‘take our souls to the polls’ and make sure you are out of there,” he continued.

They don’t even attempt to hide their bias. I guess CAIR has them wrapped around their little finger, for safe keeping. C-SPAN should be ashamed.

Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles: “It’s time to establish a greater solidarity with Islam”

December 26, 2015 By Robert Spencer

The contemporary Catholic Church has wholeheartedly endorsed that idea that Islam is a religion of peace, and that Muslims are the first victims of jihad terrorism. This proposition is enforced as an iron dogma, the one non-negotiable point in today’s comfortable suburban Church: anything goes, everything is winked at, moral teaching is discarded or ignored left and right, but whisper that Islamic jihadists point to the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism, and you’ll be the new Jan Hus.

The piece in the Los Angeles archdiocesan newspaper is just one example of the barrage of nonsense that comes from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on this issue, but it is noteworthy in being particularly counterfactual. It spends a great deal of time admonishing us that the first victims of Islamic jihad terror groups are other Muslims, as Fr. Ronald Rolheiser apparently believes, with Barack Obama and numerous other Western leaders, that this proves that the Islamic State, al-Qaeda and the rest are un-Islamic. In fact, it only establishes that they believe their Muslim opponents to be un-Islamic, and because Islam mandates death for heresy and apostasy, they kill those opponents.

Rolheiser also says: “But the Muslim religion is not to blame here. There is nothing inherent in either the Koran or in Islam itself that morally or religiously undergirds this kind of violence.” Well, let’s see. Apparently Rolheiser has overlooked just a few passages from the Qur’an, including:

From, “Our Muslim brothers and sisters,” by Ronald Rolheiser:

Popular opinion more and more blames the Muslim religion itself for that violence, suggesting that there is something inherent in Islam itself that’s responsible for this kind of violence. That equation needs to be challenged, both in the name of truth and in the name of what’s best in us as Christians.

First of all, it’s untrue: Painting all Muslims with the same brush is like painting all Christians with the same brush, akin to looking at the most depraved man who calls himself a Christian and saying: “That’s Christians for you! They’re all the same!” …/.

Read more: Jihad Watch .org

Lots of passages here to show how much supporting evidence the terrorism agenda has just in the Qu’ran.

Rolheiser goes on to say:

When we look at the history of any terrorist Islamic group such as ISIS or Al-Qaeda, we see that it first establishes itself by terrorizing and killing thousands of its own people, honest, God-fearing Muslims. And it goes on killing them. ISIS, Al-Qaeda and Boko Haram have killed thousands more Muslims than they have killed Christians or persons of any other religion. While their ultimate target may well be the secularized Christian West, more immediately their real war is against true Islam.

If that is the case, then we are justified in wondering (loudly) where are all these adherents to this “true Islam”? Are they suppressed or deliberately silent, and why are they not fighting back with everything in their means? Are they outnumbered? — No, because they always tell us a small percentage of Muslims follow this violent path of jihad. So, according to apologists, far more Muslims adhere to the peaceful ways.

But their lack of fighting or repelling it is not lost on us. We stand by with amazement, and frankly offended, as this defensive burden has shifted to the rest of the world to resist this growing, tyrannical force — even if from a smaller number of Muslims. How much will sympathy for complacent Muslims who refuse to take it on do, is a huge question?

Showing solidarity with complacency can be as dangerous as siding with the radical Islamists. Just like the inaction of peaceful Muslims have taught us. Ignorance has become not just an excuse… it is an entire strategy.

Muslims’ Moral Equivalency Problem

How dark are the channels Islamists have constructed of moral equivalence with the Jews to oppressed Muslims? (or anyone else with racial or historical grievances) Muslims are the world-wide object of hatred and bigotry if you follow their apologists’ narrative. Just listen to them. It’s a natural exercise in revision and propaganda.

Once in a while it does pay to venture out and see what their unleashed Islam-peacism movement says, unabashedly. Of course, it is very easy to see through their rhetoric, even easier to poke plenty of holes where it conflicts with reality. But their writing is a sophistry without comparison, unless you go back to Hitler’s rise. Yes, the very thing they hail as the example of their own fascist oppression used a similar approach in its propaganda. They are determined to apply the Nazi example with the Jews to their current situation. A search for Muslims are the new Jews will set one on the path. They make a moral equivalence of Muslims with Jews’ Holocaust and Nazi persecution.

Though there is a moral equivalence of the Obama administration to the Islamists — be it with ISIS terrorists or the wider radical Islamist faction. Sure we are lectured almost daily about blaming all Muslims for what Islamists do. The anti-semetic, Jewish parallel is a canard for all practical purposes. Victimization? You don’t see it. This is a hollow, desperate comparison in search of victims. Rather, a percentage of Muslims victimize the world on behalf of Islam. Does it really matter that there is a percentage that are not complicit in their barbarianism?

I mentioned the reluctance and refusal of the rest of the Muslims to combat or contain the radicals before. It is left to the world to sort out, and the expense of dealing with it is very real. It sucks the urgency out of governments worldwide. That offends me and it should offend any other red-blooded, freedom-loving American. So Islam rightly offends me. I make no apologies. It doesn’t matter that I am a Christian, or weather one happens to be any other faith. Jews were legitimate victims not terrorists.

I am reluctant to make comparisons to the Holocaust. Many pro-lifers for years have drawn abortion parallels to the Holocaust. They may have good reasons, however, I consider the Nazi/Jew case sort of sacred . Not saying I don’t use Hitler or the Third Reich analogies with current examples. I frown on using “Holocaust” (terminology) much except on WWII. Overuse could desensitize the term. I say that to say it is offensive to me seeing and hearing Islamist bandy this terminology around applied to their current struggles.(whatever the hell they, or their apologists, think those are right now) On two grounds it is offensive. The portrayal of Muslims as victims worldwide and the Hitler, fascism comparison.

Now then, these apologists frame it as an oppressed Islam that is only reactionary to what the US (or the West) are doing. Though I’d like to know how we are the inspiration for the Caliphate?(scratch that thought, I’ve heard their rationale and it didn’t sell me but it does sell to Muslims.) This mantra gets it backwards: we are forced to react to what a strain of Islam has done (perfected) for decades. It is just as clever in semantics as it is in their parallel to the Jewish antisemitism and the Holocaust. It singles out Western governments as being complicit in the very terrorism they are fighting for life from. And yes, they blame us for it while calling (us) the real terrorists. We are the terrorists, not Muslims. It has a circular logic flavor to it. It’s an attempt to use a faulty perception to construct a faulty reality. They add as their buttress argument, as Obama does, that Christians had persecutions. Christians also had a reformation which they completely dismiss. Islam is having no reformation unless to turn humanity back to the eighth century.

They compare it to civil rights and racism. According to this rhetoric, we are “prejudice apologizers” for pointing out that being Muslim is not a race? Nor is being Christian a race. It is only a descriptor. See when we try to force fit these labels and canards, we screw up the logic of the underlining point.

But since they make the Nazi parallel, how much help were they fighting the Jewish Holocaust in WWII? Notice how they distance Muslims and Islam from ISIS or the Caliphate while their arguments, and blame, add fuel to the fire ISIS runs on. So their apologetic is not far from being sympatheticy for ISIS, or supporting its agenda. Yet their answer to everything we “bigots” suggest is that you are playing right into the hands of ISIS. Everything becomes “a recruiting tool” for ISIS. Gitmo, Gitmo detainees, war on terror, on and on. Our opposition to it is a recruitment tool.

Here is the ultimate problem with all this. What is actually on the menu of Islamists is to bring the same culture to our shores that is playing out in the Middle East. And to make it mainstream, politically, which is not all that far from the Left’s M/O. In essence, it seeks to turn our country into a battlefield – a war zone. But there is a common misunderstanding about that agenda. Many will point out that it needs some power or the force of government to be effective. No, it only needs immunity from governmental force to be very effective. And that is exactly what many are hell bent on giving them. Whether in ignorance or knowingly, it doesn’t really matter.

So as they tell us we are giving the terrorists recruitment tools, it is ridiculous. But they are giving Islamists exactly what they want and need, practically an invitation. ISIS and Islamists recruit no matter what and will use our weaknesses against as their chief tool.

I get so sick of all this rhetoric that we are somehow aiding ISIS by taking a tough stand. Indeed, the only thing that will be effective and that they understand is force. But we have to be willing to stand behind it, unlike our weak-kneed apologist-in-chief who sympathizes with Islam every chance he gets. Can you say “recruitment tool?” He sympathizes with ISIS whether he knows it or not — some think he knows exactly what he is doing.

If Muslims or their sympathetic political allies are worried about bias against Muslims, then they have to look also at the context of violence in beheadings and hatred by the Islamic radical communities, both here and abroad. Then tell us there is no justification for our suspicions and concerns. But as to religious hate crimes, it is more prevalent toward Jews than Muslims. Then look at Christian cleansings carried out throughout the Middle East and in Africa. No one seems concerned at a national level by those alarming atrocities, yet we are to worry about head scarfs, hijabs, and prayer considerations for Muslims. When an event like an Oklahoma beheading is carried out in the workplace by a radical Muslim, it is labeled a workplace violence incident, giving a false victim status aura to the perpetrator. Is that rational? Is that a hate crime committed by a radical Muslim? But we are to worry about Muslims’ sensitivities. Who else can carry out an attack like that without some backlash?

Of course the problem is that Islamic radicals have declared and waged war on us. Does the fact that they are a religion really make that much difference? Why should they be treated differently because it happens to be a religious sect that is waging the war via terrorism? But they are asking us to treat them differently because they are religiously motivated.

How then do they contort that into religious persecution on a parallel with Jews? How do they perceive Muslims and Islam as victims that need the world’s help to prevent their extermination? And of all places, to make that charge about the US just because we call for scrutiny and screening the very people who declared war on us, already attacked us multiple times, and want to destroy us. That is the outrageous case they are making. If Muslims have such great sensitivities about all this, then where is their outrage, concern and criticism for what radical Muslims are doing? Oh, right, they are afraid to speak out for fear of being targeted. Right. Christians around the world are suffering persecution and we are supposed to be preoccupied with Muslim sensitivities and non-persecution of Muslims right here in the USA.

When reality catches hell

So we have a man in the Oval Office who believes winning is everything in politics and elections, but sees victory in a war against evil as a meaningless pursuit.

The proverbial question always comes to: is Obama stupid and incompetent, or is he intentionally undermining the country? After much thought I came to the conclusion that yes he’s dumb in many ways, but what he’s doing is very intentional, despite the disastrous results and effects of it all. That could be a good definition of ideologue.

But it is even worse than that. Along with his ideology that permeates everything, which alone would make it hard to defend our country, I believe he is incapable of defending the country. He is not mentally and physically capable, meaning it could come to refusal if someone tried to coerce him into it. So he flat out doesn’t have the will and is incapable, whatever the cost, of doing what is necessary and securing this country. I don’t think we ever saw that with any other President or Commander-in-Chief.

Contrary to Fox’s Bill O’Reilly calling Obama incompetent at every turn, which by now that is almost a laughable insult. The man is incapable of defending this country.

Another thing creeps into the media narrative. The pundits say these policies are political correctness run amok. I almost wish it were that simple. The actions from the justice department — executive amnesty, workplace violence, detainees, enemy swapping, Islam apologetics, anti-police policies, anti-whistle blowers, batched IRS investigations, sanctuary city policy, refugees, lack of accountability, biased civil rights investigations, gun control — are far more sinister than just political correctness run amok. There is a subversive agenda, they only use political correctness as the justification. They’ would like us to think political correctness was the cause of their policies when it is just the means.

Incompetence and political correctness became insults, cheep excuses. I only wish it were.

Obamacide and Islamocide in motion

Hi, my name is Islamophobia, and I’m back to haunt the annals of your conscience. I will tell you what a horrible person you are for thinking that people murdering innocent people in cold blood is not politically incorrect to worry about or blame on Islam. Surely you know that Islam is not the problem, well, don’t you? You must understand that the great numbers of Muslims worldwide qualifies them, on one hand, as a major force of influence in the world; while on the other as minority victims in any situation. You must understand that it is not all Muslims committing these terrible acts and terrorism. You certainly cannot hold all us Muslims responsible for those committing this barbarism. Oh, didn’t we tell you that we (whatever entity we are) condemn those atrocious acts of violence? Are you too stupid to understand that? So, banning all Muslims? Hasn’t your Islamophobia got the best of you? Chill.

This is the mental exercise we receive from Obama and the left every time one of these “tragedies” happen. But they blame guns when it is the evil hearts of blood-crazed barbarians that commit these atrocities. Dumb people who thought somehow electing someone sympathetic to a fault with Islam, if not a Muslim, would somehow appease these titans of terror. Dummies that thought a person raised in Indonesia, and bathed in radicalism of the worst sorts, would lead to a more united country. People that assuaged their own psychosomatic guilt to first, believe in him without a shred of proof, then elect him untested and unvetted to the highest off in the land — and who could not even admit their mistake once it became obvious.(even to everyone else in the world)

Obama is to the left what the Kool Aid was to Jonestown, the final fatal solution. As long as they believe in their own clueless intentions — an act of faith — it doesn’t matter what real results are produced. Ignore those at any cost. Actually, they are about as good at ignoring those as the Muslims are in ignoring effects and results of Islam.

So the poison has become their prescribed cure.

You can trace and follow the same sort of logic on abortion. The 58.5 million, and counting, dead babies are only an inconvenient fact. The solution to which is more dead babies as a sanctified right. Religion is a factor in all because they require a tenant of faith and belief as the underlying premise. The problem that exists in Islam, under that errant prognosis, calls for more conversions to radical Islam and a wider berth for “the religion of peace.” It is a cycle but you cannot untie it from the evil nature of the circular logic. If it made sense, correctly, then it wouldn’t be a problem because the solutions would be obvious.

Just as the solution to Obama’s scandals, his failed policies, or treasonous actions would be. But no one wants to look at those solutions, which would admit they were wrong to this point. The same applied to Benghazi. They cannot simply look at the obvious truth now, since their actions in Libya were based on their failed perception and faulty projection. All of these are traceable back to belief — errant belief at that. People believe Obama is the answer, not the problem. Muslims believe Islam is the answer, not the problem. Leftists believe abortion is the answer, not the horrible genocide it is.

It does go back to the battle of good and evil. (a semantics paradox) Pro-lifers understand better than anyone how insidious the evil is. On one side you have people celebrating death and on the other we celebrate life. Which is the preferred virtue? Yet we are in a fallen world, the signs of which are all around us confirming it.

Obama pushing back on terrorism label

Report: Obama Told NSC And FBI To ‘Downplay’ Terrorist Angle Of San Bernardino

Daily Caller

The FBI has taken heat for failing to immediately classify the San Bernardino shootings as terrorism, but a new report shows that FBI reluctance could have been due to external pressure from the White House.

A source told Jack Murphy of SOFREP that the FBI instantly believed the shooting, which left 14 dead, to be a clear act of terrorism. The White House, however, didn’t feel the same way and quickly moved in to squash the terror classification.

And why not. it worked for them on Benghazi? You might say they have plenty of experience. I guess Obama’s idea of fighting terrorism is fighting the labeling of it.

This source added that as soon as the shooting took place, Obama convened a meeting with the National Security Council and the heads of other federal enforcement agencies to discuss a public relations strategy. — more>

 

So that photo the WH had strewn across media of Obama meeting with his advisers in the Situation Room was a deceptive photo-op. The picture we never saw from Benghazi he makes sure we see now. Except he was pushing back on calling it terrorism.

Obama’s idea for a P/R strategy meeting was brainstorming to oppose a terrorism narrative. We actually made jokes about that but now it is confirmed that’s exactly what he was doing. It was self-serving for Obama to manage and strategize the story. That is what the situation room is to him, a political strategy room. Funny how even the pictures are deceiving with Obama. It validates my lack of trust for any actions of BHO as CiC.

What a self-centered creature of politics and narcissism. It’s a pathetic state of reality.

Franklin Graham lives in reality USA

Franklin Graham — (Facebook)

“Politicians in Washington seem to be totally disconnected with reality.”

For some time I have been saying that Muslim immigration into the United States should be stopped until we can properly vet them or until the war with Islam is over. Donald J. Trump has been criticized by some for saying something similar. The new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said yesterday that he disagrees—saying that “such views are not what this party stands for and more importantly it’s not what this country stands for.” Politicians in Washington seem to be totally disconnected with reality.

Research shows that there are 2.75 million Muslims living in the U.S. According to a poll commissioned by the Center for Security Policy, 51% of Muslims living in America believe “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to sharia” (Islamic law) instead of the U.S. Constitution. 29% agree that violence against those who insult Mohammad is acceptable, and 25% agree that violence against America can be justified as part of global jihad. Among males under the age of 45, that number rises to 36%. And 29% of males under 45 believe that violence against America is justified in order to make Sharia the law of the land. This is frightening.

Our politicians are not listening to the truth—my prayer is that God will open their eyes. This affects our security and the future of our nation. If you agree, email your Congressman or Senator today, and SHARE this with others (be sure to copy & paste this text when sharing).

Graham was referring to a Pew Research poll.

Muslims and Islam: Key findings in the U.S. and around the world

By Michael Lipka | Pew Research

Muslims are the fastest-growing religious group in the world. … Here are answers to some key questions about Muslims, …./ [read]

From the Washington Post

In July, Graham, the son of Billy Graham, wrote on Facebook that the country should “should stop all immigration of Muslims to the U.S. until this threat with Islam has been settled.” That post came after four Marines and a sailor were fatally shot at military facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn., by a Kuwait-born U.S. citizen from a conservative Muslim family.

Another Pew Research article says:

The public continues to express conflicted views of Islam. Favorable opinions of Islam have declined since 2005, but there has been virtually no change over the past year in the proportion of Americans saying that Islam is more likely than other religions to encourage violence.

And that is not all that has declined since 2005.

More on Graham’s Facebook here.

If it is a matter of life and death, which I believe it proves, then what is the problem with our concerns about their dysfunctional vetting? The left couldn’t even vet the current president in 2 elections. Certainly, the ruling-class are disconnected from reality.

I’m offended by Muslims

Yes, you read that right. It’s not politically correct, you say? No, but it is correct to say. (Sorry Hillary, Obama, et al)

News for Muslims: I’m offended we have to sacrifice and fight this battle of Islamic terrorism. What are you doing? What have you done about it? Do you plan on doing anything about it? But our men, women, civilians, and soldiers are killed and maimed by this ideology, which happens to align itself with Islam and Muslims’ faith.

War with Islamists is a 100 year war, but also a permanent one. No one wants to think this is a permanent state of the world. It’s a way of life. Yet our leaders are crying and whining about global warming being a permanent condition of this world. They want us to change our entire lifestyle to reflect that reality their scientists’ claim. No, they demand we do.

I’m offended by Muslims. They all offend me, since they haven’t been able to stop ISIS or any of the other 100 plus terrorist groups. Have Muslims at large ever prevented or intercepted a terrorist plot? Even if they did it would only be one plot, one act. Can they show me a mosque or network that they shut down? No. Do they want us to police it?

But when France was attacked, a Muslim group ran out to say they condemned this act on the strongest possible terms. What’s that mean and what is that worth? Are they just going to come out every time and condemn the act? Are they also condemning ISIS for their existence? Sorry, I’m having a hard time qualifying their condemnation.

Yet they, Muslims and Islamists, tell us that the real problem is people like me that suggest the whole religion might be to blame. That’s the problem they are concerned about and that’s the problem they want all of America (everyone) to actively work on. They want our government stepping in to prevent that injustice. Their biggest worry is that their religion is being slandered somehow by the victims and citizens of the world.

Some people say they are afraid to speak out or come forward to criticize ISIS or Islamist radicals. Yet they are not afraid to come out to criticize us for “hating” on Islam. Isn’t Islamic terrorism giving Muslims a bad name? Wouldn’t you think they would be concerned about that enough to take a stand and do something to stop it? We’ve been waiting over 12 years now. It hasn’t happened and doesn’t look like it is going to happen. It has declared war on us and civilization. It is left to the world to deal with and combat it. That is insulting and offensive.

Coming black attractions

So what to expect with Farrakhan’s anniversary march in Washington this month? I wonder if it will get a shout out or endorsement from Obama or the White Spite House?

Fears surge over potential violence at Farrakhan ‘hate rally’

Ominously titled ‘Justice or Else’ on 20th anniversary of ‘Million Man March’
October 4, 2015 | WND

Twenty years ago there was the “Million Man March” in Washington.

Now, on the anniversary of the event organized by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, comes “Justice or Else!”

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, the founder and president of the Brotherhood Organization for a New Destiny (BOND) and author of the new book “The Antidote,” calls it a “hate rally.”

He said evil will come out of the Oct. 10 event, including rising tensions between blacks and whites.

“This is a KKK rally,” Peterson said. “This is a skinhead rally.” …/

[Jesse Lee] Peterson said the outcome may not be pleasant.

“To law enforcement, this is a serious thing for you, because you’re going to have to go out there and calm these people down and protect them, and protect others from them,” warned Peterson. “I pray for you and pray that you watch your backs, because some of these folks at that rally will shoot you down standing there. And with that kind of hatred being encouraged in their hearts, there’s no telling what will happen there.”

The ‘Justice Or Else’ march, no implication there? He;s been working on and building this up for 6 months, so it’s hard not to expect fireworks. The only question is what will Obama and his cabal say? When it is others they have some snide remarks.

I’ve already heard behind the scenes discussion of what they want to do. Can we expect our “government” was listening? That was only a fleeting thought. Everyone in this piece agrees that Farrakhan and his comrades should be taken seriously. The days of dismissing them as just a marginal group have long passed.
