Same with CAIR. And the EU Migrants. And the Democrat Party.
If you really want to guarantee a victory for Donald Trump in November, just keep on criticizing him for trash-talking the terrorists. You’re playing right into his hands.
With their attacks, beheadings, enslavements, rapes, destruction of historical treasures, and videos, ISIS has demonstrated that they are not a serious terrorist organization. If they were, they would know that their constant baiting of American Republican presidential contenders, notably Donald Trump, is exactly what the right wing wants. ISIS should realize that preventing Donald Trump from becoming the Republican nominee, and preventing a Republican victory in November, is more important than killing a bunch of strangers at an airport. Lots of splashing blood, flying body parts, screaming Allahu Akbar as one self-detonates, and threatening even more tiresomely over-dramatic carnage simply is not in the best interests of Radical Islamic Terrorism, long-term.
Hamas-linked CAIR sometimes seems to get this. They tend to keep a low profile, just quietly giving material support to terrorists, while sobbing in front of media cameras about how Muslims are suffering under a
tidal wave, sorry, tsunami of Islamophobia. But even they can’t resist the siren song of criticizing Donald Trump. Don’t do it! That’s exactly what he wants!
CAIR spokesperson Nihad Awad, (photo left), has been particularly naive when it comes to understanding the Trump strategy. His habit of constantly moaning and whining and screeching ISLAMOPHOBIA! every time a Muslim is, say, obliged to yield when merging onto the highway, gets a little old. People roll their eyes and smirk, which is exactly what Donald Trump wants.
Nihad must realize that Americans, once only concerned with freedom, justice, earning a living, and giving their children a better life, are now susceptible to video games and reality TV. Enter Donald Trump.
Everyone in America knew who this guy was long before he declared his candidacy. The media strategy of the Trump campaign means that American voters, once less vulnerable to Republican recruitment, are now part of that political party’s target audience. Every time a Muslim terrorist kills people at a concert, or while quietly having dinner, or riding on the Metro, the video will show up on the news, and it will be all over social media in no time. And a few more voters will become Trump supporters. You’re playing right into his hands!
Trump support can happen anywhere. Sometimes people will be innocently watching a network news broadcast, for example, and they’ll hear about some hijab-wearing airplane passenger having to put up with a flight attendant opening her can of diet coke! The news anchor might express complete sympathy with the poor Muslim, who is demanding $60 million dollars in damages, as well as an apology from the flight attendant, the airline, and Donald Trump. The viewers will look at each other, declare “This is complete bullsh*t,” and wham! Trump supporters.
So imagine how many supporters he gains when the media flash the photo of that brother and sister, now deceased, who were at the airport in Brussels. Not smart. Somebody dropped the ball.
Keep this in mind the next time you decide you want to bring a fake bomb to school, or throw a gay man off the roof, or rape a little boy at the swimming pool, or enslave an entire village, or grope the children at the bus-stop, or marry the 9-year-old, or flog the woman with her hair showing, or kill all your co-workers, or kill all the marathon runners, or kill all the Jews.
And ask yourself if it can’t wait until after the November elections.
This morning we awoke to the news of a deadly terrorist attack in Brussels. Isis claimed responsibility for the bombings at the airport and the Metro station. The death toll stands at 34, with more than 200 injured.
The attacks were a show of strength in response to the capture of one of the murderers in the Paris attacks last November, Salah Abdeslam, on Saturday. The Muslim residents of the Molenbeek area of Brussels have harbored the fugitive terrorist for most of the four months since the attack. Molenbeek has long been considered a “no-go” area of Brussels. Civil authorities fear to enter the area, where the Muslim residents have established a state- within-a-state ruled under Sharia law by an assortment of Muslim terrorists who are held in high esteem by their community. The area is an active recruitment base for ISIS.
By this afternoon
More explosive devices reportedly were turned up Tuesday as police raided homes throughout Belgium in a desperate manhunt for a third suspect believed to have survived the morning’s coordinated bombings in Brussels, where at least 34 people were killed.
Included in the haul were several unexploded devices, NBC reported. CBS reported two more devices had been found . . .
Abdeslam reportedly stayed in Schaerbeek, the neighborhood where the unexploded bomb and chemicals were reportedly found, for up to three weeks after he fled Paris in November. A more middle-class community than the infamous Muslim enclave of Molenbeek, the western portion of Schaerbeek is home to a large population of Turkish and Morrocan immigrants.
While some left wing politicians have blamed the attacks on the West, other commentators who are known to be left-of-center have started to at least notice a pattern behind the attacks. Notably, Piers Morgan, and the hosts of “The View”, had surprisingly positive things to say about Donald Trump following the attack. So if the murderous muslim savages had the objective of getting Trump elected US President, they’ve certainly hit on an effective strategy.
Our Lame uck took 51 seconds out of his busy schedule in Havana to make some remarks on the topic before attending a baseball game, but I honestly can’t remember anything he said.
After Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Scalia, numerous left-wing news outlets have predicted a “bruising fight” and a “pitched battle” over the nominee. They’re really starting to sound desperate.
Think Progress suggests that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has given “veto power” over the nominee to the NRA and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
And there’s this:
The Majority Leader’s statement is significant for several reasons. For one thing, it suggests that his previously stated position that “this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new President,” is a sham. Simply put, it’s unlikely that the NRA or the NFIB will change their position on a nominee just because Hillary Clinton is president and not Barack Obama.
Some sham. With the nationwide enthusiasm for the Republican front-runner, and Hillary’s mounting legal troubles, it is indeed unlikely that anyone will ever know the identity of a Hillary Clinton nominee.
Also, Obama is launching a new group, the “Constitional Responsibility Project” to try to convince Americans that the Senate must consider his nominee, and admonishing “obstructionist Republicans” to “be fair.” With the help of former aides and several Soros-funded groups, the new organization will be up and running in 3-4 years, after the IRS approves its tax-exempt non-profit status.
Oh, Ha-Ha! I’m just teasing.
While it takes conservative organizations 3-4 years or so, and several lawsuits, to get IRS tax-exempt status, the new Obama organization already has tax-exempt status, just days after the need for the “project” became apparent to the Left: Just one of the perks of being utterly corrupt, and having not the faintest notion of the concept of how to “be fair.”
Established in recent weeks as a nonprofit organization, the group will solicit donations, develop advertising, coordinate messaging, help manage operatives in the field, respond to attacks on Judge Garland and collect opposition research on Republican opponents.
It is essentially a miniature version of Obama for America . . . but with a new mission: to serve as an umbrella organization for the constellation of liberal groups that typically wage fights on behalf of Democratic court nominees.
Ms. Cutter [the president’s 2012 deputy campaign manager] and the other Obama alumni have held strategy meetings twice a week with representatives of MoveOn.org, the Center for American Progress, Americans United for Change, People for the American Way, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and others.
“No one progressive and Democratic group can compete with the Koch brothers, which is why we believed it was essential to launch a coalition-based campaign,” Ms. Brundage [a former Obama aide] said. “The Republican Senate obstruction has brought together a large and diverse coalition unlike any other nomination fight in recent memory to fight for a fair process.”
To paraphrase, “Damn those Koch brothers. They’re just like George Soros, except not on our side.”
Anyway, all of this is essentially a tempest in a cesspool. The Senate has no Constitutional obligation to consider the president’s nominees in any set period of time, and the Majority Leader need do nothing at all, save keep his word and wait for the lame uck to leave office.
And let the Democrats deal with their anger issues as best they can, poor dears.
Residents in over 170 nations around the world are set to participate in this year’s “Earth Hour” on Saturday. The countries will turn off non-essential lighting for one hour on Saturday March 19 to symbolize their commitment to saving the Earth’s environment. Hugh swaths of the planet will voluntarily resemble North Korea, as residents do without artificial light. International landmarks like Big Ben will go dark during that hour as, worldwide, municipalities join in the observance.
But in Sweden, specifically the town of Östersund with about 45 thousand residents, the city authorities have nixed plans to have the city go dark, out of fear of the Religion of Rape.™
Police have instructed women to not go outside alone at night following a spate of sex attacks, and police patrol in search of the perpetrators who have so far avoided capture.
There have now been 14 separate reports of sex attacks in the town, with victims ranging from grown women to 10-year-old girls. Police have refused to release details of the suspects they are seeking — as is usual in a country where police took the decision last year to combat racism by not discussing the ethnicities of crime suspects — but victims have described “foreign origin” attackers.
The danger is considered so great the symbolic act of turning the town’s municipal lights off for one hour is considered too much of a risk.
Earlier this month, police in Östersund warned women to observe what amounted to a dusk-to-dawn curfew in response to sexual assaults. The town has seen the attempted rape of two 10-year-old girls waiting at a bus stop, as well as molestations, beatings, and several other attacks. Citizen groups have begun patrolling the streets at night.
The town is the site of a large migrant camp, housing as many as 500.
If you’re wondering about John Kasich’s new vocal support for illegal immigrants, a report published by Breitbart tells us the reason: money from Soros. Yes, Ohio Governor and current Republican hopeful John Kasich, race-based agitprop pressure group LaRaza, and anti-Trump thug organizers MoveOn are all funded by the Soros money machine. George Soros also funded the “spontaneous” Ferguson protests.
A man is judged by the company he keeps, Governor.
According to the Center for Responsive Government, Soros Fund Management is one of the top funders of the Kasich campaign. Of course in campaign funding the “which came first ?” question should be addressed: Is Kasich receiving funding from left-wing open borders advocate Soros because of his views, or are his views a result of funding from Soros. It’s entirely possible that John Kasich’s radical views are long-held, which makes him even less qualified to be the Republican nominee.
Kasich’s positions on immigration are a tiresome blend of kumbaya pseudo-religiosity, open-borders we’re-all-humans globalism, and Chamber of Commerce / no-upward-pressure-on-wages corporate capitalism.
He has called illegal immigrants a “critical part” of American society, claimed that he “can’t imagine” removing illegals from their homes, and likened removing illegal aliens from the US to the “internment of Japanese during WWII.” He insists that illegal aliens are “god-fearing, family-oriented” people who are “contributing significantly” to this country, and can’t be deported because they are made in the “image of the Lord.” He wants guest workers to “come and go” as they please, wants to “enact amnesty within 100 days” of taking office, and stop deportations because they are “inhumane.”
Kasich made no mention of the fact that 87 percent of illegal alien households with children in 2012 were on welfare, according to a 2015 report based on Census Bureau data.
Kasich similarly made no mention of last year’s report from the liberal Migration Policy Institute which found that there are nearly one million illegal aliens in the United States with criminal convictions (820,000). This total is not an estimation of total crimes committed by illegal immigrants–which would be a much higher number–but only those illegal aliens successfully identified, arrested, tried and convicted.
Maybe Soros is right to fund such a like-minded candidate. The question is, what makes Kasich think he’s a Republican?
Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified on Wednesday that the Department of Justice had “discussed taking civil legal action” against “climate change deniers”.
The AG, who earlier claimed that alleged anti-muslim rhetoric is her “greatest fear,” told the Senate Judiciary Committee that she had considered the possibility of a case against the “fossil fuel industry”, and that any information her office received had been sent to the FBI to try to “build a case.”
Lynch’s comments were in response to questioning by Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of RI. Whitehouse compared “climate change” (formerly “global warming”) “deniers” (aka those who dissent from the leftist orthodoxy on the topic) to those employed in the cigarette industry, which was railroaded by the Clinton administration into paying hundreds of billions (yes, that’s a b) of dollars for selling a legal product.
Much of the money paid as settlements in those tobacco cases went directly into the coffers of the legal industry. Some of the lawyers involved, e.g. John Edwards, the disgraced former Vice-Presidential running mate of current Secretary of State John Kerry, made an estimated $200,000.00 per hour for their work on the case.
The similarities between the mischief of the tobacco industry pretending that the science of tobacco’s dangers was unsettled and the fossil fuel industry pretending that the science of carbon emissions dangers is unsettled has been remarked on widely, particularly by those who study the climate denial apparatus that the fossil fuel industry has erected.
The Senator did not specify who “those who study the climate denial apparatus” might be, but rest assured, they are all infallible experts with no political agenda whatsoever. Just ask Sen. Whitehouse.
Senator, thank you for raising that issue, and thank you for your work in this area. I know your commitment is deep. . . . We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action on.
–which would not have qualified as a sentence in Sister Mary Dominic’s 2nd grade class, but never mind. Loretta Lynch did not get her job because she can speak her native language well.
She got her job because she is a marginally qualified African-American racist with a deep committment to advancing the Obama Administration’s agenda no matter how many laws nor how much of the Constitution she has to violate to do it. From the Federal takeover of Ferguson, MO, to the War on Free Speech following the San Bernardino Muslim terrorist attack, to the extra-legislative gutting of the coal industry, to the present legal threat to climate dissenters, Lynch is there to enforce the . . . whim of HM King Barack.
One of the big losers in the Obama administration’s climate agenda is West Virginia, a state where just under 94% of the population is white. Just 19% of the population has a college degree, and 18.3% lives in poverty.
By October of 2013
In West Virginia alone, there are over 3,500 miners laid off or furloughed and another 12,000-15,000 mining-dependent jobs have been lost. Across the Appalachian region, the damage is even worse, with approximately 10,000 direct mining jobs lost and another 40,000 indirect jobs lost. . . . [T]he net effect is the removal of $719 million from West Virginia’s economy and a $2.05 billion loss from our region. These are real dollars that have been lost, impacting every family and business in our area.
And the war against coal miners and Appalachia has continued, and recently been stepped up. The West Virginia Coal Association estimates that 2000 miners lost their jobs in the first month of 2016. Under the administration’s Clean Power Plan, more job losses are expected, and electricity costs are skyrocketing.
According to American Action Forum (AAF),
total power-plant jobs in the United States fell sharply during this period, going from 137,000 in 2008 to 97,000 in 2013, a 28.8 percent reduction. During the same period, Kentucky lost 5,188 coal-mining jobs, a 30.7 percent reduction. Power-plant job losses in Kentucky were 644 (37.4 percent), and in West Virginia, 1,316 (32.9 percent); Ohio lost 1,088 (21.8 percent); and Pennsylvania, 729 jobs (16.8 percent).
All this while the Obama administration claimed to be “crating” jobs. Though Obama failed to persuade Congress to enact most of his environmental wish list into law, the EPA during his administration has moved to implement his agenda administratively, the citizens and their representatives be damned.
And what is behind the “climate change” drumbeat, facts and evidence to the contrary notwithstanding? According to Ottmar Edenhofer, an official at the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC), that would be “We redistribute the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
First of all, developed countries have basically expropriated the atmosphere of the world community. But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.
Read it and vote responsibly.
There is a new report out that Hillary’s email account revealed the location and movements of slain Ambassador Chris Stevens, then the US envoy to the Libyan rebels.
The email, entitled “Chris Stevens’ Mission”, was written Sunday, April 10, 2011 by State employee Timmy Davis . It was forwarded to Clinton by her aide Huma Abedin.
The email in question read:
The situation in Ajdabiyah has worsened to the point where Stevens is considering departure from Benghazi. The envoy’s delegation is currently doing a phased checkout (paying the hotel bills, moving some comms to the boat, etc). He will monitor the situation to see if it deteriorates further, but no decision has been made on departure. He will wait 2-3 more hours, then revisit the decision on departure.
This is one of several emails tracking Stevens’s movements. Others dated March 27, April 8, April 22 and April 24 detail his schedule and activities:
A March 27, 2011 email released last year was titled, “Chris Stevens mission.” It divulged: “The current game plan is for Mr. Stevens to move no later than Wednesday from Malta to Benghazi. He will stage offshore initially for a one day visit during which he will have meetings with TNC interlocutors and get a sense of the situation on the ground. The goal of this one day trip is for him to lay the groundwork for a stay of up to 30 days.”
An April 8, 2011 email was forwarded to Clinton revealing the “security situation in Benghazi remains quiet. Chris Stevens & team are in the hotel, moving only for meetings as required.”
An April 22, 2011 email revealed Stevens was on the road: “I want to let you know about a temporary rotation in Benghazi. TNC Envoy Chris Stevens has been on the road since March 13, when he began his outreach mission, and has been in Benghazi since April 5.”
An April 24, 2011 email has the exact time of a Stevens meeting: “”Stevens will be meeting with MFA in one hour and will make a written request for better security at the hotel and for better security-related coordination. He still feels comfortable in the hotel. They are looking into the idea of moving into a villa, but that is some way off.”
Hillary could not have been more irresponsible, or more helpful to America’s enemies, had she been in the employ of the people who attacked the Benghazi consulate, killing Ambassador Stevens, Diplomat Sean Smith, and Ret. Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
Former UN Ambassador John Bolton said that Clinton and her staff “knew exactly what they were doing” in using a private email server, and that “she is in deep legal jeopardy” after the emails released Monday show that Ambassador Stevens wanted to leave Benghazi for months before he was murdered.
They knew they were going over the line . . . That email and others that have been released demonstrate they know what was going on. If that’s not specific intent for a prosecutor, I don’t know what is. As a matter of law, the former Secretary of State is in deep legal jeopardy and she should be.
