Yes, many Americans are plain stupid about sharia law

Saturday, March 19th, 2016

“Sure, why not?” So happily blurt several California WOMEN about the possibility that Hillary Clinton would allow the imposition of (Stone Age) Muslim “law” in the U.S. I’ve watched the video shown below several times… None (none) of these people even know what Islamic sharia law means (misogyny, hatred, violence, intolerance). The interviewees feel an intense need to show that they are “progressive.” They don’t want to admit that they don’t know what they’re talking about (except for one, but she caved eventually). Too many people have succumbed to complacent ignorance, group-think, and/or the constant deluge of misinformation produced by the mainstream media, academia, the elite political class, social institutions… It’s really scary to see such blatant foolishness — especially watching WOMEN mindlessly accepting sharia, a belief system much of which is dedicated to misogyny. Note: According Pew Research (2015), Americans “know little or nothing about Islam.” Ignorance is not bliss. Sharia law is antithetical to all liberties that sane, common-sense Americans hold dear.


Common sense: good people with guns stop attempted mass shootings

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

(The core events highlighted in this article were reported earlier this year, but are very prescient now. The poll numbers presented herein were released last week and in October.)

A good guy — a law-abiding citizen — with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun. Simple. Two mass shootings were stopped immediately, once in March in Philadelphia and again in April in Chicago. Breitbart compiled a list of 16 incidents “between November 30, 2014, and January 13, 2015″ where “armed citizens [used] guns to defend their lives and the lives of others.”

The Second Amendment ensures that citizens can protect themselves, protect the common good, and protect the rights afforded us by our Constitution. Common sense Americans understand the responsibility that comes with gun ownership — unlike the folks flocking to give up their rights, surrendering their ability to protect their loved ones and their way of life, and looking for a free ride from big government bureaucracy. While the police may be able to rush to the scene of a crime in progress, it may take them (many) minutes to arrive. An armed citizen can react in seconds (and I urge armed citizens to seek training in the use of firearms and to be sure they practice and hone their skills).

The “leaders” of the “gun control” movement want nothing less than completely dis-empowering good people. Many followers of the “gun control” movement leadership are just plain afraid — probably of just about everything — and want someone else to protect them (do they even understand their constitutional rights?). The facts:

Here’s how good citizens with guns protected other citizens:

Compassion or self-destruction? – ACT NOW TO STOP SYRIAN REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT TO THE U.S.

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

CALL, EMAIL, AND SEND FREE FAXES YOUR REP AND TWO SENATORS TO TELL THEM TO DEFUND SYRIAN REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT TO THE U.S. Call the Capitol Switchboard (888) 995-2086 and ask to speak to your 3 congressional reps — or look up their direct lines, emails, and fax numbers at this link. AND/OR… YOU CAN ALSO USE THIS LINK TO SEND FREE FAXES TO ALL THREE OF YOUR REPS URGING THEM TO DEFUND THE SYRIAN REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT (USE EXISTING LETTER OR WRITE YOUR OWN).

The female San Bernardino shooter pledged support to ISIS, [1] the Islamist terrorist group’s de facto capital IS IN Raqqa, Syria, [2] and the female “San Bernardino Shooter Passed [a] DHS Counterterrorism Background Check.” [3] “FBI director James Comey testified for the second time this year before Congress that the Administration was flatly unable to screen Syrian refugees.” [4] Syria is in absolute chaos, filled with terrorists from ISIS, [2], Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, Iran, the Assad regime, etc. [5] “Syria is at the nexus of some of the Middle East’s most central problems, meaning that fallout from its uprising is likely to ripple, in unpredictable ways…” [5] ISIS may have “scores of ‘trained soldiers’ positioned in 15 [American] states.” [6] ISIS successfully attacked Paris. Why wouldn’t any of the many America-hating groups in Syria use “refugee resettlement” to infiltrate the U.S.?

Gun Owners of America: “Paul Ryan Would be ‘Boehner on Steroids’”

Friday, October 16th, 2015

By Andrew L. Jaffee

Over the years, I’ve come to know that Gun Owners of America (GOA) is one of the most effective pro-Second Amendment groups in the U.S. I urge you to heed their caution and take action regarding the next Speaker of the U.S. House. The GOA rightfully points out that, while it was great for us to get rid of Speaker Boehner, we certainly don’t want Boehner to hand-pick his own anti-gun successor:

ACTION: Click here to tell your Congressman that you do NOT support any Congressman for House Speaker — including Rep. Paul Ryan — who is willing to compromise on Second Amendment rights!


Tell your Representative to Vote NO on Ryan

They said it couldn’t be done.

But, through your activism, you put pressure on sell-out Speaker John Boehner and helped bring his career to an unlamented end.

But there’s still work to be done.

Lest you think that things couldn’t get worse, one of the top candidates to replace Boehner is the compromising Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan (R).

Ryan voted for the Thompson-King amendment last year — an anti-gun amendment that would add an additional $19.5 million to pay states to turn in more names to the federal gun-ban (NICS) list.

Already, more than 175,000 law-abiding veterans have lost their Second Amendment rights this way.  And, in states like New York, this money will pay to strip Americans of their constitutional rights, merely because they consult a psychiatrist and are prescribed a therapeutic drug.

Ryan has not had many tough (recorded) votes on guns, but the things HE WANTS to do should scare you.

TAKE ACTION TO SAVE AMERICAN JOBS AND U.S. SOVEREIGNTY: STOP OBAMA’S TPA / TPP / FAST-TRACK

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

WE CAN STOP OBAMA FROM DESTROYING AMERICAN JOBS AND SURRENDERING U.S. SOVEREIGNTY — ACT NOW WITH ONE CLICK (BELOW)

Take 1 minute to fill out a short form and click — or instantly get your House rep’s phone number and talking points. Letter text is already there and your message will be automatically routed to your senators and House rep. You can customize the text all you want or write your own letter. I’ve provided multiple links so you can pick and choose which organization’s form to use. There is very broad opposition to TPP/TPA/fast-track (Trans-Pacific Partnership/Trade Promotion Authority) spanning the political spectrum. This is a chance for good American citizens of all stripes to come together and do the right thing.

Do you want to let President Obama sign a “largely secret” [1] trade deal that will eliminate “millions of good jobs,” [2] give “the President More Power,” [3], increase “Trade Deficits,” [3], surrender American sovereignty, [3] allow “currency manipulation,” [3] and allow increased immigration [3] (ON TOP OF OBAMA’S AMNESTIES)? Many polls confirm Americans’ strong opposition to TPA/TPP, [4][5][6] and some House Republicans are taking note. [7]

“The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a sweeping international regulatory agreement that effects everything from the environment and energy to the minimum wage, food and immigration. If approved, it would have the force of a treaty. Its regulations would override U.S. law and the White House would not be obligated to follow any directives Congress offers on what those rules should look like.” [1]

Book Review – Living History: On the Front Lines for Israel and the Jews 2003-2015

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

By Fern Sidman

“From 2003 through the early months of 2015, I wrote more than 200,000 words about anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism,” says Prof. Phyllis Chesler in the introduction of her recently released book, Living History: On the Front Lines for Israel and the Jews 2003-2015 (Gefen Publishers).

This admission should come as no surprise to anyone even tangentially familiar with the voluminous amount of essays and articles that Dr. Chesler has written on the subject over the last 13 years, donning an impressive variety of hats. As an astute political analyst, researcher and investigative journalist, she has honed these skills in her quest to offer her reader a meticulous examination of a panoply of hot button geo-political issues pertaining to Israel and the Jewish people.

In this anthology-style compendium that contains the corpus of her work in non-redacted form, Chesler prodigiously confronts the seemingly eternal scourge of global anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism, the pernicious nature of radical Islam, the proliferation of visceral Jew hatred and incessant Israel bashing on university campuses, the exposure of the most egregious forms of propaganda in films and books, the truth about the nefarious agenda of multicultural relativism, and critiques the role of the Left-liberal media in creating the “perfect storm.”

SUPPORT ISRAEL: Watch Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Address a Joint Meeting of Congress

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

SUPPORT ISRAEL: Watch Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu address a joint meeting of Congress. An extremist Islamist Iran’s going nuclear — and its proxies are causing mayhem in the Middle East. President Obama is doing nothing to stop this madness. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is doing something — and has the guts and morality to warn the American people of the danger Iran presents to the world — unlike an impotent Obama. Watch now: http://www.c-span.org/video/?324609-2/awaiting-israeli-prime-minister-benjamin-netanyahu-address-congress

Note that:

Despite months of relentless attacks coming from President Obama, his White House, and his sycophants in the mainstream media, here in America Benjamin Netanyahu has seen a boost in his favorability rating to where the Israeli Prime Minister is now in much better shape than our own President.

According to the latest Gallup poll, 45% of Americans view Netanyahu favorably while only 24% view him unfavorably. Since 2012, Netanyahu’s favorability rating has jumped a full 10 points, while his unfavorable rating has risen an insignificant 1%.

The latest favorability ratings for Obama come from a Feb 23 Economist/YouGov poll that shows Obama tied with Netanyahu in favorability with 45%, but with an unfavorable rating of more than double that of Netanyahu’s at 50%. This is a poll of 1000 adults. Gallup polled 837 adults.

As far as job approval, according to the most recent Gallup poll Obama sits at 44% approve, 51% disapprove. …

Iran’s Nuclear Buildup and American Irrelevance

Sunday, February 23rd, 2014

by Daniel Pipes*

The Menendez-Kirk “Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013” (S. 1881) threatens the Iranian regime with additional sanctions and appears to be the only way to counter the Obama administration’s flaccidity vis-à-vis Tehran.

I am skeptical, however, that it can do much good.

The Two-State Delusion

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

by Mordechai Nisan*

Two decades after the signing of the declaration of principles (DOP) by Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) on the White House lawn, there is something unreasonable in the world’s continued adherence to the Oslo paradigm, tattered and battered as it is by years of a bloody fiasco. The Palestinian Arab leadership has consistently and adamantly rejected the two-state solution since its first articulation in 1937 by the British Peel commission[1] and has, as consistently, advocated the destruction of the Jewish state. Still, it undertook a successful public relations campaign in the 1980s promoting the notion of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip—”the occupied territories.”

Is the US changing sides in the regional conflict between Iran and its enemies?

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

by Jonathan Spyer*

A report by respected Washington-based journalist Hussein Abdul Hussein in the Kuwaiti Al-Rai newspaper this week revealed details of an indirect US channel with Hezbollah.

The report comes, of course, close on the heels of the interim agreement concluded in Geneva between the P5 + 1 world powers and Iran, allowing the latter to continue to enrich uranium.

News items are also surfacing suggesting a stark split between the US and Saudi Arabia over regional policy in general, and policy toward Syria in particular. Saudi officials are going on the record expressing their alarm at the direction of American policy.

Local police departments getting military-grade equipment

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

There is a disturbing trend in what I had assumed to be the “home of the brave; land of the free:” The federal government is distributing military-grade equipment to state and local law enforcement across the country. It seems that many in government and law enforcement have started to see their own countrymen as a threat. President Obama hasn’t helped the situation by pushing gun control, using the NSA to spy on his own citizens, using the IRS to persecute his political opponents, supporting terrorist groups in the Middle East, having an attorney general who “use[d] Trayvon Martin to attack the 2nd Amendment,” … Should I go on? From Fox News:

From war zones to city streets, some military vehicles are getting a new life — and not everyone is happy about the recycling.

The Defense Department recently announced it would be giving domestic law enforcement forces hulking vehicles designed to efficiently maneuver in a war zone for use in thwarting any potential high-scale activity. …

The aftermath of the Iran-Obama agreement

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

By Gary Gerofsky

One government wanted an agreement with Iran more than Iran itself: The Obama Administration. Iran wanted an agreement on its nuclear program to alleviate sanctions and to open up the floodgates to international business. According to USA TODAY:

… Six world powers reached an interim agreement late Saturday night with Iran on its disputed nuclear program after four days of talks in Geneva.

In the six-month interim deal, Iran agreed to limit nuclear activities in return for relief of up to $7 billion in sanctions that have hurt its economy. …

Money will inevitably flow freely after Iran is welcomed back into the international fold with its nukes intact, with its “death to Israel” foreign policy still in place and with Obama and the international community taking the first step towards welcoming Iran into the nuclear weapons’ club. Obama needed the Iranian deal to cover up its recent domestic and foreign policy failures. By the time Iran and the mullahs start lying about the details, as Obama lied, spun and avoided in the immediate aftermath, it will be too late — a world anxious to not be involved in another conflict in the Middle East will not care if they were delivered lies or truth. Notice how the leader of the Islamic republic, Ayatollah Khamenei, did not lower himself by attending the meetings of the “Sextet.” Khamenei’s emissaries had to fly back and forth to update and to get orders from his “highness.” This in itself is an arrogant statement that Khamenei is superior to those scrounging for acceptance by Iran for their “peace” overtures. It is an acknowledgement by the world that they accept Khamenei’s superiority.

I grieve for the Naval Yard victims, but I must act now to protect gun rights

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, families and friends of those lost to the senseless mass murder at the Washington Naval Yard on Tuesday. But I must grieve briefly because the power-mongers of our nation will use this tragedy to try to take away our guns even though guns would’ve stopped yesterday’s slaughter. The massacre happened at a military installation. If our good people in the U.S. military were allowed to carry their sidearms, yesterday’s evil murder-spree would’ve been stopped almost instantly. (If you’ve read enough, ACT NOW.) It’s almost incomprehensible, but:

… Among President Clinton’s first acts upon taking office in 1993 was to disarm U.S. soldiers on military bases. In March 1993, the Army imposed regulations forbidding military personnel from carrying their personal firearms and making it almost impossible for commanders to issue firearms to soldiers in the U.S. for personal protection. For the most part, only military police regularly carry firearms on base, and their presence is stretched thin by high demand for MPs in war zones. …

Do we take away carpenters’ hammers while they’re putting up a new house? Think about this:
