I saw the future — anti-Semitism — at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Friday, March 28th, 2014

By Gary Gerofsky

In a gymnasium on the campus of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, which is used for sports, concerts and normally happy and festive events of student life, I saw the future. It was in the form of a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) vote that passed overwhelmingly. The vote passed but will not take effect at this time because they did not get quorum (they needed over 600 students but they had a little over 400). I am told that the pending vote will be passed along to senate where its fate will be in the hands of that body. Regardless, one day soon, as on hundreds of campuses throughout the land, these and similar anti-civilization votes are or will be taking place. They are attended by hundreds of students, a good portion dressed in Islamic attire; some older students who do not appear to be students at all, angrier and more determined than your average Canadian student. Also in attendance are many Muslims and other supporters who are often bussed in by various religious and other groups, churches, unions, etc.

Infosys Fine Highlights Needed Immigration Reforms

Monday, November 4th, 2013

By John Miano, CIS.org

Infosys has agreed to pay a record $34 million dollar fine for visa abuse. Infosys was circumventing the H-1B quota by bringing foreign workers in under B visitor visas instead. Such foreign workers have to return home every few months to renew their visas.

This is a very common practice throughout the industry — and it is not just the Indian companies that are doing it. When I worked for the now-defunct American company Digital Equipment, they were doing the exact same thing.

Here are some points that this raises:

Six enrollments by second day after Obamacare rolled out

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

A CBS Evening News headline story on October 31 read:

Obamacare enrollments got off to very slow start, documents show

My, what a glaring… er, ah… debacle. The LA Times, another cog in the mainstream media’s (MSM’s) machine, along with CBS, read:

… Thousands of Californians are discovering what Obamacare will cost them — and many don’t like what they see.

These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years.

Although recent criticism of the healthcare law has focused on website glitches and early enrollment snags, experts say sharp price increases for individual policies have the greatest potential to erode public support for President Obama‘s signature legislation. …

Constitutional amendment to remedy the “Do As I Say (Not As I Do)” syndrome?

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

By Andrew L. Jaffee, Captain

Restoring America Together

Americans have gotten used to, and quite fed up with, many of our elitist politicians who “Do As I Say (Not As I Do).” Isn’t it about time that all Americans live as equals? Have we fought so many great battles — the Revolution, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Civil Rights Movement — just to end up with elitist politicians pushing us around, not caring about what we who pay for their cushy jobs believe in? One of our politicians, Rand Paul, is demanding that Americans do live as equals. Now the question is: Can we get enough people in the U.S. together to start the ball rolling to propose Paul’s amendment to the United States Constitution as described in Article Five? (Click here for the process by which we amend our constitution.)

Oct 21, 2013
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Rand Paul last week introduced S.J. Res. 25, a Constitutional amendment that would hold government officials to the same standard as the American people. The amendment states that “Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to Congress.” The amendment also contains two provisions that apply that same principle to the Executive Branch and Judicial Branch of the federal government. The amendment text can be found below:

S.J.RES.25

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relative to applying laws equally to the citizens of the United States and the Federal Government. (Introduced in Senate – IS)

SJ 25 IS

113th CONGRESS

1st Session

S. J. RES. 25

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relative to applying laws equally to the citizens of the United States and the Federal Government.

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

October 11, 2013

Mr. PAUL introduced the following joint resolution; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

JOINT RESOLUTION

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relative to applying laws equally to the citizens of the United States and the Federal Government.

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States:

‘Article–

‘Section 1. Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to Congress.

‘Section 2. Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to the executive branch of Government, including the President, Vice President, ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and all other officers of the United States, including those provided for under this Constitution and by law, and inferior officers to the President established by law.

‘Section 3. Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to judges of the Supreme Court of the United States, including the Chief Justice, and judges of such inferior courts as Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.

‘Section 4. Nothing in this article shall preempt any specific provision of this Constitution.’

Is Muslim Brotherhood working together with Amb. Chris Stevens’ assassin?

Ahmed Moussa, a prominent Egyptian television personality on the Tahrir TV channel as well as a former officer in Egyptian State Security Intelligence (SSI), went public on July 30 with a remarkable piece of information.

Moussa said, addressing U.S. ambassador Anne Patterson (in absentia) on his show:

Four Levels of Immorality Within the Illegal Immigration Business

Monday, August 12th, 2013

By David North, CIS.org

The grim story of some illegal aliens being forced out of a ship onto a booby-trapped desert island reminded me that there are different levels of immoral conduct in the illegal alien business — I will get back to the island later.

Everyone involved in illegal immigration is, of course, playing a harmful role to the host society, but some of the players are even more unattractive than others. And some classes of players are much more numerous than others.

Obama, McCain and Graham make a ‘huge mistake’ in Egypt

Friday, August 9th, 2013

by Raymond Stock*

On their current trip to Cairo, Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), two of President Barack Obama’s most persistent critics on everything in foreign policy from Syria to Benghazi, have found common cause with him at last.

All three fear that the anti-American (and generally anti-human) Muslim Brotherhood (MB), whom they mistakenly see as “moderate,” will disappear from the halls of power in Egypt, our most important Arab ally. They also evidently worry that the MB’s leading figures, such as now-deposed (and arrested) President Mohamed Morsi—who had awarded himself powers greater than any previous ruler in Egypt’s history—will not be free to plot a return to power in an ancient nation that he had nearly destroyed in only one year.

What Obama calls ‘workplace violence,’ the terrorist himself calls ‘war with Islam’

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

“Thirteen people were killed, including a pregnant soldier, and 32 others shot in the Nov. 5, 2009 rampage by the accused shooter, Major Nidal Hasan, at the [Fort Hood] Army base in Killeen, Texas,” the killer “says the U.S. government is at war with Islam,” but the Obama administration insists that Hasan’s act of self-proclaimed Islamic-inspired terrorism was an instance of “workplace violence.”

Just before Hasan committed his savage attack at Fort Hood he exclaimed, “Allahu akbar” (“God is great”), which is the battle-cry of most Muslim terrorists. “Hasan had been in contact with Anwar al-Awlaki, a jihadist deemed so dangerous that Obama had him killed in a drone attack.”

Today, we found out more about Hasan’s “beliefs:”

… Maj. Nidal Hasan released a lengthy statement to Fox News (http://fxn.ws/1cafkA2) on Saturday in which he says he regrets serving in the Army and “participating in the illegal and immoral aggression against Muslims, their religion and their lands.” …

This is textbook terror-speak, yet the Obama administration is hell-bent on whitewashing Islamic terrorism. Whether Obama believes he can appease Islamic terrorists or whether he somehow identifies with their “cause” (as he has seemed to do in, for example, Egypt), he is not accomplishing anything except for emboldening Muslim terrorists. They despise fear. Obama started his presidency by “reaching out” to the Muslim World, but we knew he didn’t reach anyone:

Two years after US President Barack Obama called in a groundbreaking speech from Cairo for a “new beginning” in relations with the Muslim world, his popularity among Arabs has nosedived, a poll released Wednesday shows. …

The Arab world’s image of the US as a whole has also soured to become even less favorable than during the last year of the administration of president George W. Bush, under whom the United States led an international coalition that invaded Iraq, the survey found. …

Mr. Obama, please stop BS-ing your own people.

Helen Thomas, racist reporter, honored

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Imagine if an American reporter spouted, “Blacks should get the hell out of America and go back to Africa!” His/her career would be over instantly and the person would certainly not be glorified and mourned when dying. Well, our perverse, upside down, and politically correct society’s media has honored such a type of person.

It was horrible to watch, listen to, and read all the glowing epitaphs showered on former reporter Helen Thomas. She was painted as some kind of heroic reporter, willing to “stand up to presidents” (as she was usually accorded the honor of sitting in the front row of reporters at presidential news conferences).

She was nothing more than a disgusting ignorant racist bigot who should’ve been kicked out of the business of journalism years ago. This is Helen Thomas in her own words, advocating ethnic cleansing:

Helen Thomas Apologizes for Saying Jews Should ‘Get the Hell Out of Palestine’

… “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.”

Thomas went on to say that the Palestinian people “are occupied and it’s their land” and that Israelis should “go home” — to Poland, Germany, America “and everywhere else.” …

She offered the apology only to try to save her sagging career (along with her sagging facial structure). Her original ugly statement was also a clear indictment of her own ignorance.

The word “Palestine” was invented by the angry Roman emperor Hadrian. He wanted to insult Jews by renaming their Jewish homeland called “Judea” into a perversion of the word “Philistine,” which refers to a Greek people. The Philistines were old enemies of the Jews. There is no “Palestine” nor is there a historical basis for calling a bunch of Arab immigrants into the Holy Land “Palestinians.”

Jews have at least 4000 years of proven continuous history and presence in Israel, while Arabs and their political ideology called “Islam” only showed up in the Holy Land in the 7th century A.D.

We do not celebrate anyone’s death. That type of behavior is for the likes of Helen Thomas. But we do not bury the truth nor do we whitewash racists.


U.S. Ambassador to Egypt: “Muslim Brotherhood’s Lackey”

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

by Raymond Ibrahim*

Why do millions of Egyptians, including politicians and activists, consider Anne Patterson, the U.S. ambassador to Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood’s “stooge”—as she is so commonly referred to by many in Egypt, from the media down to the street?

In America, some are aware of matters, such as that “Patterson in particular resisted opportunities to criticize the Morsi government as it implemented increasingly authoritarian policies. In a memorable May interview with the Egyptian English-language news sit[e] Ahram Online, she repeatedly dodged pointed questions about Morsi’s leadership. ‘The fact is they ran in a legitimate election and won,’ she said…. Republicans from Texas Senator Ted Cruz to House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce have pounced on statements like these, increasingly seeing Patterson as the key implementer for a policy that at least offers tacit support to the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Family Feuds, Wild East Style

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

by Phyllis Chesler

Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal had a front page story: As U.S. Pulls Out, Feuds Split Afghanistan’s Ruling Family. This title is both comic and tragic but it is not “news”.

“A Ruling Family feud” is Afghan history and, perhaps, psychology. Afghan Emirs and Shahs seized thrones mainly from their brothers, half-brothers, uncles and nephews. Rulers were routinely tortured and murdered by their relatives; some were allowed to live, but with their eyes gouged out.

It is not exclusively up to Israel to make the world right

Friday, June 28th, 2013

By Gary Gerofsky

Israel has and continues to make increasingly important contributions to the world of science, medicine, software, hardware, the arts, humanitarian aid and a great many other categories. Israel, to its credit and out of necessity, has also made great strides in military equipment, training and minimizing human suffering in war. In situations where Israel could easily have eliminated those who intimidate, terrorize and make the destruction of Israel their raison d’etre, Israel has chosen to use surgical techniques against attackers, putting their own soldiers at risk instead of taking the easy route of massive bombing missions. When the shoe is on the other foot, Israel’s enemies throw everything they have at Israel and — were it not for Israel’s military superiority — Israel would have been eliminated long ago as Jewish enclaves and/or kingdoms have been wiped out through the ages by superior armies headed by tyrannical despots.

Obama to Egyptian Christians: Don’t Protest the Brotherhood

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

by Raymond Ibrahim*

As Egyptians of all factions prepare to demonstrate in mass against the Muslim Brotherhood and President Morsi’s rule on June 30, the latter has been trying to reduce their numbers, which some predict will be in the millions and eclipse the Tahrir protests that earlier ousted Mubarak. Accordingly, among other influential Egyptians, Morsi recently called on Coptic Christian Pope Tawadros II to urge his flock, Egypt’s millions of Christians, not to join the June 30 protests.

While that may be expected, more troubling is that the U.S. ambassador to Egypt is also trying to prevent Egyptians from protesting—including the Copts. The June 18 edition of Sadi al-Balad reports that lawyer Ramses Naggar, the Coptic Church’s legal counsel, said that during Patterson’s June 17 meeting with Pope Tawadros, she “asked him to urge the Copts not to participate” in the demonstrations against Morsi and the Brotherhood.

The Pope politely informed her that his spiritual authority over the Copts does not extend to political matters.

Tell your senators to vote NO on immigration amnesty bill S.744!

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

PLEASE ACT NOW! using the links below as the Senate is voting on the immigration amnesty bill, possibly the most wide-ranging piece of nonsensical legislation proposed in decades. The bill puts amnesty first and border security last (if ever). Tell your senators to vote NO on S.744! It will just take you a couple of minutes. (For information to present to your senators, see below.)

Senate Bill S. 744 is a piece of legislation that will destroy the American dream. Among its many heinous provisions are that it will grant amnesty to 11 – 20 million illegal immigrants, grant amnesty to “employers found to have employed illegal aliens or who are currently employing illegal aliens,” cost American taxpayers $6.3 trillion when our country is already drowning in debt and unemployment is high, take away jobs from Americans already struggling to find work or who are under-employed… This piece of legislation has been cobbled together using the old smoky backroom deal-making tactic. The devastating impact of S. 744 is summarized here, here, here, and here. You can use these links to learn about the immigration amnesty bill, find out why you must oppose it, and arm yourself with facts to present to your elected representatives when contacting them. PLEASE ACT NOW!


Why Expanded Government Spying Doesn’t Mean Better Security Against Terrorism

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

By Barry Rubin

What is most important to understand about the revelations of massive message interception by the U.S. government is this:

In counterterrorist terms, it is a farce. Basically the NSA, as one of my readers suggested, is the digital equivalent of the TSA strip-searching an 80 year-old Minnesota grandmothers rather than profiling and focusing on the likely terrorists.

There is a fallacy behind the current intelligence strategy of the United States, the collection of massive amounts of phone calls, emails, and even credit card expenditures, up to 3 billion phone calls a day alone, not to mention the government spying on the mass media. It is this:
