“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.

(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:
- “We’ve had a massive decline in gun violence in the United States” (Washington Post)
- “Poll: More Americans oppose stricter gun control” (CNN)
- “More and more, Americans see guns as the solution — not the problem” (Washington Post)
Here’s how good citizens with guns protected other citizens:

In three main ways, the JFK murder still has repercussions for Americans and the world. It also has a unique place in my life.
First, had the assassination attempt not succeeded, arguably neither the Vietnam War nor the Great Society expansion of government would have afflicted the United States as they did. The Virtual JFK: Vietnam If Kennedy Had Lived project concludes that “JFK would have continued to resist a US war in Vietnam. Even though the Saigon government, weak and corrupt, was destined for the dustbin of history, he would have resisted those calling on him to send US combat troops to Vietnam. He might have ended all military involvement.”

Without freedom there can be no democracy. Without the US supporting freedom, democracy is endangered. With the US supporting make-believe democracy without freedom, there can be no real democracy with freedom. With the US working against freedom, there can be no US. With the US supporting Islamism (masked as a “religion of peace”), terrorism and war will flourish.
The US has had a mixed record of working to weaken or undermine states, individuals and groups that were harmful to its self-interests. US policy has generally been focused on its own interests, regardless of the merit of those interests. Now, with US President Obama’s new appeasement foreign policy, it could be argued that its policy is not geared towards its own self-interests but rather the interests of Islamists and leftists who are pushing hard to advance Obama’s vision of an Islamist crescent surrounding a shrunken or perhaps non-existent State of Israel. We must ask ourselves a very serious question: Why is Obama acting to destroy Israel, backing Islamists, and strengthening terrorists? How does this help American interests? Why are the American people not reacting to what amounts to the hijacking of US foreign policy to help the ideology of terrorists who were quite eager to attack America on 9/11 and to damage the US at every other opportunity before and after 9/11?

The peaceniks and media types have been excited these past several days over U.S. President Obama’s victory at getting the Government of Israel (GOI) to prostrate itself in front of the world. The Jewish State stands tortured and shackled by Obama and the E.U., self-flagellating in a defeated manner that is a national embarrassment, all to satisfy a world lusting for punitive action and retribution against the Jewish people for successfully establishing a free state, once again, in the place where they have lived continuously for at least 3500 years. It is now payback time in the minds of leftists because Jews survived and then defeated those who wanted to eliminate Israel with war and terror. Jews defeated people aligned to Adolph Hitler during the Second World War. Now, with the destructive help of those empowered to protect and defend Israel, the Jewish State is being asked to make dangerous sacrifices amounting to suicide.
Why did Haifa’s International Film Festival wish to honor filmmaker Mira Nair for her film “The Reluctant Fundamentalist”? The film is just another exceptionally well done piece of anti-American propaganda which justifies Islamic/Islamist terrorism by showing us that America harasses Muslims constantly, even Muslims as brilliant and assimilated as Nair’s “fundamentalist” hero, Changez. According to Nair, America is to blame for Pakistani fundamentalist terrorism.

I read an article by Barry Rubin regarding American politics vis-a-vis “The Arab Spring” entitled, “At last, The Secret of President Barack Obama’s Middle East Policy Revealed, No Kidding.” It is profoundly disturbing because it points out (in the diplomatic-speak of US officials) that the foreign policy of the US is now built on appeasement and a quid pro quo arrangement that trades moral and material support to the Muslim Brotherhood and, ultimately, Al Qaeda, Iran and all other terror entities, for protection against violent jihad by terrorists.
The US mainland will be safe (the new unwritten doctrine suggests) provided bribes are paid to Islamists and leftists in whatever form the Islamists and leftists demand (and the demands grow and change to suit their evolving politics). Forced respect for “the religion of peace” (a popular misnomer for Islam) and subversion of free speech and truth are high demands now being quietly exacted by an Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC)-controlled UN with their European sycophants looking for Obama backing. The US and Europe are willing to trade Israel’s security to make Europe and the Obama administration feel righteous.

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.
Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, billionaire, desiring to rewrite the constitution, and countrywide buttinski suffered a major “gun control” loss on Thursday in Nevada. He and his pet group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG), “spent hundreds of thousands of dollars” to buy passage of the Nevada state legislature’s bill SB 221, another dangerous piece of gun control legislation dressed up to look palatable by applying the innocuous-sounding “background check” label to it. Bloomberg lost, and lost big-time, not because of a paid opposition wading in money, but because of a viral grass-roots effort organized by average Americans provided with information by several pro-Second Amendment advocacy groups. Bloom-baby: Money can’t buy you love.
New York City’s mayor plays machine politics, thinking that his billions can be used to buy the hearts and minds of American citizens. Bloomberg is thinking top-down. He is “a founding member of the group” MAIG, so how could this group be a spontaneous offspring of concerned citizens? He’s paying mercenaries to pursue his own agenda, and the ethics of his money-pump are being investigated by Judicial Watch. He and his allies immediately concluded that the ricin-tainted letters sent to him were an effort to stop his anti-gun crusade, but the truth behind the story was that some pathetic has-been actress decided to throw a tantrum and frame her soon-to-be ex-husband. Bloomberg’s efforts are not grassroots, while the opposition to his recent Nevada campaign was grassroots.

This past week U.S. President Obama made Susan Rice his new National Security Adviser and Samantha Power his ambassador to the UN. Both women have the kind of credentials, loyalty and temperament that Obama needs to go full steam ahead on his second term agenda which includes the Obamification of the world, further apologizing for America, weakening the U.S. at every opportunity and saying “sorry” by supporting the most dangerous players on the world stage. The President is effectively giving up America’s position as defender of freedom and promoter of democracy and Judeo-Christian values. The Pax Americana era has long since disappeared. The safety derived from strength has disappeared. A state of vulnerability has resulted from political correctness and contrived shame that Obama conveys as a mea culpa for the U.S. having once been a dominant nation.

The mere thought of granting amnesty to 11 – 20 million illegal immigrants should frighten any common sense American citizen. Amnesty means that wannabe tyrants like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Michael Bloomberg, and Barack Obama will achieve their “dream of a permanent Democratic majority” in the U.S. The entire political, cultural, social, and economic landscape created by our Founding Fathers will be destroyed by amnesty. Concerned citizens must engage in the democratic process to stop the current immigration “reform” madness. This article provides them with all the tools they need to do so by clicking here. Please take action NOW or read on before doing so. NOW is the time to act as:
… opponents are gearing up to flood Congress with calls condemning any legislation that allows illegal immigrants to gain legal status or citizenship.
The same tactic helped defeat immigration reform the last time lawmakers considered passing bills in 2006 and especially 2007, when a flood of angry calls shut down the switchboard in Congress. …
Most of you are the descendents of immigrants who came to this great nation legally, who built decent lives by living according to decent values, and passed those values unto you. Your ancestors assimilated. Most of you were raised to believe that the American dream is the chance — the opportunity — to achieve your full potential by working hard, being honest, treating people as you would have them treat you, believing in the common sense law of the land (based on the Constitution), having core values, and having faith, all to build a better life for yourself, your family, your friends, your community, your nation, and even the whole world. Your conscientious legal citizenship — your patriotism — is about to be thrown in the trash.

How did scholars of the Middle East and those engaged in moonlighting (non-specialists who write about the region) react to the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013? Before the smoke cleared, some were predicting that the perpetrators would be “right-wingers” who sought to “disrupt tax day,” “neo-Nazis,” or “lone wolves.” Given that Muslims constitute 30 of 32 of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s list of most wanted terrorists, this represents either wishful thinking or willful blindness.
Interview with Mark Durie
by Christian Worldview Radio*
David Wheaton: Perhaps you watched the Boston Marathon bombings that killed four people and injured more than 200 others and wondered, “Why would two young Muslim men, who were granted political asylum in America years ago, educated in our schools, and received financial aid from U.S. taxpayers, set off two bombs in order to murder and maim as many Americans as possible?”
It’s a very good question. It has been said that, “All Muslims are not terrorists … but almost all terrorist attacks against America are committed by Muslims.”
Why is this? What is it about Islam — or perhaps about America? — that leads two young Muslims to murder the people that have actually taken them in?
Some people seem to be perplexed as to why a gun owner would want a high-capacity magazine for his/her weapon. A “magazine” or “clip” is a cartridge that holds the bullets that a gun can fire. The gun know-nothings ask their capacity question as if only a lunatic would want to fire more than 5 bullets before reloading. These people have no idea what they’re talking about. They’re certainly not the type of person you’d want to have defending you during a home invasion. When push comes to shove, you’re defending your own life and/or that of family, friends, and compatriots, handling a gun is not like it seems on TV. Guns are not easy to aim, handle, or reload — especially when lives are at stake. It can take years of practicing, training, or both to become proficient with a self-defense weapon. It can be difficult to neutralize an opponent, especially if he/she is moving, has superior firepower, he/she has armed accomplices, and you’re all pumped up with adrenaline and emotion (fear). Instead of trying to write an explanation of why you’d want a high-capacity magazine, watch the following public service announcement created by MB Studio Productions. If you have brains, you’ll understand. If you don’t understand, there are explanations (“In a gunfight, being able to reload with new magazines is a real advantage, and this is why police officers and licensed civilians regularly carry spare magazines for their pistols.”). If you do not want to understand, then go join the the rest of sheep who are deluded into thinking that only mercenaries should be allowed to protect the common good of this nation:

The Jewish Daily Forward published an article on April 17, 2013, soon after the Boston terrorist bombings entitled “Jews Warn Against Rush to Judgment on Boston Marathon Terror Bombings: Security Experts Say History of Mistakes Teaches Caution.” It contained the usual cautionary tripe and left-wing warnings not to presume anything about the bombings and not to jump to conclusions. The article did not, however, avoid musing about connections to Hitler’s birthday, the Oklahoma bombings, and the low-tech nature of the attacks — all conjecture used by the author to obscure the true nature of the terror act and to pin blame on the unobvious. The carnage was actually carried out by obvious culprits and the usual suspects: Muslim terrorists.
