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?

 

 

 

 

How to Win A War

George Bush the elder knew how to fight a war.  He gave Saddam a deadline and while waiting for the deadline he prepared.  Soon after the deadline he started the bombing campaign.  It was 30 days of intense bombing that removed almost every Iraqi command and control facility and fully demoralized the Iraqi army.  Then in a 3 day blitz he defeated Saddam’s forces with almost no loss of American life.  Kuwait was again free.

Obama’s approach is to invest as few of our own people as possible and to only commit us part way.   When Bush the younger did not commit sufficient forces we lost far more lives and were losing the second Iraq war.    That is why the surge changed the balance.  It is like anything in life, partial commitment means failure.    Obama is the king of partial commitment.    Unfortunately, when its the commander- in-chief partial commitment means dead Americans.

Whether fighting ISIS now or not is a good idea, fighting them with no commitment is definitely a bad idea.  Once again the President shows his disdain for America, its soldiers, and its way of life.  If he would just seal the borders, that would do more to protect us that anything he is doing abroad.

Terrorist at the Border

The big news organizations did not report the arrest of suspected terrorists at our border last week.   Searching for this story on NBC, CBS, and ABC comes up with nothing.    How are these organizations looking out for us.  By burying these stories they help keep the border open to cheap unskilled labor which continues to rob jobs from American citizens.    Each organization is willing to put our very lives at risk to satisfy their open border philosophy and their advertiser’s wish for cheap labor.

If I can avoid buying anything from organizations that advertise on any of these outlets I will.   Dead Americans mean nothing compared to the ideology or to the profit.   Each of us should email them and complain, then ask the FCC to fine them since they are clearly not acting in the public interest.   Their behavior in purposely hiding risks to our population is nothing short of criminal.

Let’s Be Unpopular – America for Americans –

Last week a student from the Muslim Student association explicitly when asked by David Horowitz  if she supported the killing of the Jews concentrated in Israel answered, “I do.”  I do not know if this girl was a citizen or not, but I do know that tens of thousands of students here on visas feel the same way.   They want the death of Jews, Christians and Americans in general.  If they are not citizens, why are they allowed to be here?  Everyone of these students need to be asked if they will condemn Hamas and other terrorist groups. If they won’t publicly condemn these groups they should be deported immediately.   If they are not citizens they do not have a “Right” to be here.  Why are we housing, feeding and funding our enemies?

Any  citizen that voices that they want the destruction of America needs to be tried for treason.  They have a right to free speech, as long as that speech is not actively seeking to destroy this country.  If you are supporting terrorists with your words or inciting violence then you need to be silenced.  Had that approach been taken with the Fort Hood shooter, thirteen more people would be alive today.

This same approach should be given to jobs.  If you are not a citizen, you have no business working in this country as long as a single citizen remains unemployed.  How did we get to such a point where we do not care for our own.  Families that do not care for their own fall apart.    Does being a “Citizen of the World” mean that you open yourself up to poverty and that you fail to help the people around the corner that are struggling.   It is time to focus on what is important.  Americans will take care of this country as long as we quit giving it away to people who want its destruction or who have no interest in being citizens.

Why are we sending 3000 troops to stop Ebola when we can’t seal our own borders.  We won’t send boots on the ground to stop declared enemies, but we will send troops to stop a disease.  Where is the UN for something like that which is really the purview of the UN?    Again this is more of this misguided citizen of the world syndrome.

We would have incredible prosperity if our leaders weren’t so elite and educated.  Really, they are narcissistic, self-interested, self-absorbed and deluded. All of us citizens pay a high price for that.
