The Nature of Islam – Territorial Greed is in its DNA

From the dawn of Islam, practicing Muslims have sought to control territory.  More often than not they sought to dominate people and lands in the name of the prophet.    The Ottoman empire which lasted for 100’s of years is just one example of many where the military might of Islam was translated in economic and religious domination.   Even if you call it Jihad, it is no different than the territorial ambitions expressed by Putin as he annexed the Crimea.   It’s land hungry aggressors against all who will not stand up.

The Islamic nature of the war against ISIS may make the process seem more brutal, but I would contend that the brutality is no different than the brutality exercised by Islamic dictators since the time Mohammed walked the earth.  Hezbollah has taken over and controls much of Lebanon.  The Taliban had controlled Afghanistan.  The use of terror to cow and frighten your enemies is not new either.  It is an always has been a part of war.

The reason that Muslims have not been trying to overrun the world in the past few years is that western armies had defeated them.  They had lost the war.  In Afghanistan and Iraq they had been pushed far back.  The Ottoman empire was disassembled.   They were not pushed back by spineless leaders scared of conducting a war, but by leaders willing to shed blood to put the enemy in its place.    Win the territory, win the war.  It has always been this way and will always be that way.  ISIS now has their sites on a new piece of land, while we pretend to be conducting an anti-terrorist activity instead of a war.  We are doomed to lose unless we realize what evil people have done since time memorial and oppose them on those terms.

A New Low – In all the News

Today, looking at the Drudge report between stories about Iran, Government snooping, a threat to the internet and about the softball questions 60 minutes gave to Obama, the story that caught my eye was a story about a women who died of cancer but was heard yelling from within her coffin.   It really is not all that different than looking at endless puppy videos on YouTube, or frittering away time on Candy Crush.  Who wants to deal with the real stuff.

The real stuff is the stuff of the economy, politics, society, crime, war, terrorists, threats and the impact of history on our day to day lives.  We have become a society that has often mastered the ability to distract ourselves from the real stuff.  In a democratic society that distraction is dangerous.  The people in charge of keeping watch on the government in our country is us.  The constitution says so, “We The People”.  If we the people are not staying on top of things, being aware, being educated and fighting for freedom, then we will lose the freedom that has allowed us to become the most secure, and prosperous country in the world.

With cell phones, IPads, tablets, games, social media and the digital boob tube we have let the entertainment industry distract us and take us way away from what’s important.     If we as a nation were far less distracted, there is no limit to what we could accomplish.  We need to take our brains back from never never land.

Breaking the American Spirit — The New American Slave

The statistics are abhorrent.  Poverty is up by 2% over 2007.  There are more people than ever before who are on disability or who are receiving government benefits.  Note that I did not say there are more people than ever before that are disabled.  The lack of decent paying jobs has forced many able bodied individuals to seek disability benefits as a means of survival.  In the same way many more have been forced to seek support from the government by way of a host of government benefits.

This dependence on government has robbed those individuals of dignity and the pride of self reliance.  The result can be seen in the plight of whole neighborhoods who have lived on the government dole for generations.  The children of these families grow up with no hope nor ambition.  Every increase in government dependence creates a new generation of slaves.  The master in this case in the government which can dictate where people live, what people buy, what medical care is allowed and just around the corner, which vices are acceptable and how you will vote.

Already benefits come with rules.  Its big brother taking over the lives of those who depend on it for sustenance.  Seldom do individuals, once they become dependent, ever break free.  They have to earn too much to be able to afford to go to work.  Since the true nature of the constitution is no longer taught in school and since the level of education where people had fully independent critical thinking skill has all but vanished in the public school system students are set up to fail from the day they enroll.  The easiest way to keep someone as a slave is to never let them know what freedom or knowledge really mean.

The epic failure of the US government is the destruction of capitalism and trade of opportunity for a utopia that is way less than the previous reality.  Its a utopia which has failed every time it has been tried as it castrates human ambition and beheads the dreams of millions.  Until people are willing to fight for what was the American dream it will remain dead, and the American people will remain as sheep led to the slaughter.

 

Life is Cheap

With an average of 1.2 million abortions a year in the United States, is it any surprise that the value of life in America has plummeted.   In Europe they are holding up as examples elderly people that want to kill themselves   They call that euthanasia.  It’s a nice big 21st century word for self murder or suicide.    Young women in the inner city learn that killing babies is OK.  Teenage boys learn that babies have no value.  In the same process they learn that life has no value.   So, with life cheapened, whole elements of our population don’t care about themselves or others.

This same attitude opens up young men to the radical Islamic preaching where they become killers.  If they never learn to value life they are open to the idea that only their own lives and the lives of other radicals have value.  They then get their sense of worth from a narcissistic, sadistic belief in their own religious fervor.  Their god is a god of death and vengeance.  They are devoid of the caring and empathy.  This radical that cut of the head of the woman in Oklahoma today could not have valued life, otherwise he never would have committed that horrible crime.

We need to return to a world where life is valued.  Those that threaten others need to be locked away or dead.  Ending the wanton killing of babies would be a start.  Bringing the idea of fatherhood to the inner city in order to raise children born out of wedlock would go a long way toward civilizing those that currently care little for their own lives.    Changing the culture of death to one of a culture of life would go a long way to making our society better.

 

Thanks to WebMD My Healthcare is Worse

Many companies will take money for just about anything.   Thanks to WebMD and others such as AARP that promoted Obamacare my ability to afford the doctors visits I need has been compromised.  My quality of my overall healthcare as a post open heart patient is greatly diminished while my costs have sky rocketed. WebMD was paid 14 plus million  to promote Obamacare.  In addition, their contract has just been extended.   It’s like selling juggling knives to blind people.

So, a web site that supposedly cares about people’s health is contributing to the destruction of the very system that used to provide some of the best healthcare in the world.  Across the spectrum, seniors have less benefits than before and they pay more for the reduced benefits, those in middle age now get free checkups, but can’t afford to see a doctor if they are actually sick.  Doctors and hospitals are being weeded out of the system at a time when they are more needed than ever.   We are watching the wanton destruction of the very thing that once made America exceptional.  I may have to go to Canada to afford treatment.

Of course the media knows and ignores this horror.  ABC, CBS and NBC do not dare report the truth as it would sink their socialist agenda.  I already dropped AARP for its support of Obamacare.   It is time to hold all these groups accountable.  If you advertise on WebMD I hope no one will buy what you sell ever again.   They were advertising a depression drug today.  Their willingness to get paid to throw peoples health under the government bus is depressing.

Iran Has the Bomb

Did that get your attention?  How close are they?  According to Israel they will have a working nuclear bomb in months or less. So what will happen then?   Will they try to use it on Israel as they have promised?  Will they try to use it on us?. While we are busy bombing the desert sands of Iraq and Syria, Iran is not stopping its development of weapons of mass destruction.  While we are concerned with climate change and Ebola in far off lands we still have open and free borders.

When will we as a people quit being led around by news cycle liberal nose rings?  ABC says to focus on ISIS and we forget the open border and the terrorists streaming across into this country.  NBC tells us global warming is going to kill us all  although the models themselves were proven to have been manipulated.  Even though this year shows more Antarctic ice than ever before in history, and even though there has been no increase in average global temperatures over the last 20 years NBC still tells us that it is a crisis.  The American sheep lap it up like starving dogs in the butcher house.

CBS says that there is a war on women because the government won’t pay for their birth control, while real women across the world are beaten, sold as slaves and imprisoned as property under Sharia law.  Yet, the polls move as if this fictional war on women was real.

When are we going to stop listening to the propaganda machine?  We are following the holier than thou media into a life far less prosperous and free.  We should stop buying from their advertisers and start pushing them to tell the truth about what matters, rather than tell us lies about what does not.

Questions for Real Reporters

Are you tired of the media interviewing key government people such as Obama, Kerry, or Hillary and getting no information because the media refuses to probe into any real depth.  Let’s take this ISIS business for example.

Here are some better questions:

Why are we arming the free Syrian Army when their main goal is to get rid of Assad, not ISIS?

If we give arms to the free Syrian Army how are we going to make sure that they use it to attack ISIS?

How do you know those arms won’t fall into ISIS’s hands?

What makes you think that the free Syrian army wants to do anything other than help ISIS?

Don’t both groups want to kill Assad? Doesn’t that put them on the same side?

Won’t arming these people be giving arms to radical Muslims?

Will more Americans die because we are arming the free Syrian army?

Who is in charge of vetting these folks before we give them US arms and munitions?

How has the free Syrian army treated Christians?

Why does Secretary Kerry do everything he can to deny this is a war?

Why does Obama completely ignore the advice of his military advisers?’

Why are we sending 3000 troops to stop Ebola, but next to none to stop ISIS?

Is Ebola a greater threat to us than ISIS?

How are our troops trained in handling viral pandemics?

Doesn’t it put our troops in danger of catching the disease and bringing it back?

Doesn’t sending our troops, who are medically untrained into an Ebola hot zone put their live at risk and the live of Americans back home at risk?

Why does CBS, ABC and NBC not ask these questions?  Do they want Americans to be at risk?
