Carson Only Republican with Guts Enough to Call Spade a Spade

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, says it’s a duck and hangs with other ducks, that’s still not enough for the politically correct to plainly call it a duck.
That’s the good old U. S. of A. Land of the free and home of the brave.
Except for the absurdly large majority of people who either don’t feel free enough or aren’t brave enough to call a duck a duck.
Ben Carson feels free enough and isn’t afraid to call the shooting in the Charleston church what it was. Carson wrote,
“Racial based hate is still very much alive as last night so violently reminds us. I fear our intolerance of one another is the new battle ground of evil. Today many feel it is ok to hate someone who thinks different that you do… As a brain surgeon I can assure you that all of our brains look the same, no matter what our skin color or party affiliation.”

Note that Carson didn’t say only whites are racists, which the rest of lame media and certain leaning activists and politicians prefer to imply.
There’s plenty of racism in every hue of human being. It will likely never be legislated away completely. Human psychology requires and therefore constructs fictitious worlds that people use to deceive themselves, more often than not, about themselves in order to not feel badly about themselves.
That’s why, despite everyone knowing racism is no good, there’s still racism.
Carson was the only one of the presidential candidates who averted the deception.

Rick Perry called the shooting a ‘hate crime’ but didn’t say what was being hated.
Rand Paul said there is a sickness in our country, but didn’t identify the sickness. And, isn’t he a doctor?
Ted Cruz called the shooter a ‘sick and deranged person,’ but didn’t go any further.
Chris Christie called the ‘conduct’ of the shooter ‘depraved and unthinkable’ with no reference to the obvious.
Jeb Bush digressed on the mind and heart of the man who committed the crime, after asked a second time if race was behind the attack he got closer but still remained non-committal: “I don’t know. Looks like to me it was, but we’ll find out all the information. It’s clear it was an act of raw hatred, for sure. Nine people lost their lives, they were African-American. You can judge what it is.”

The rest of the republican presidential field was no closer.
Among the democrats, Clinton gave the typical lawyerly vague response.
Bernie Sanders was closer, “The Charleston church killings are a tragic reminder of the ugly stain of racism that still taints our nation,” he said in a statement. “While we have made significant progress in advancing civil rights in this country, we are far from eradication racism.”
Kudos to Carson for not running in fear or using caveats, like the rest of his republican brethren.

America: Imagine the World Without Her

Image 1
Based on the New York Times #1 Best Seller by Dinesh D'Souza.
"You'll be inspired." — Rush Limbaugh
Liberals and progressives love to criticize and condemn America for all of the horrendous things she has alledgedly committed.  Revisionist history has been taught to the American population for several generations now, leaving very few who know America's true history.  
To hear the progressive's tell the story, you'd think we stole our land from Native Americans and Mexicans, built our country on the backs of the African slave trade, and now are using our military might to rob other countries of their oil.  And to top it all off, we have a capitalistic system that keeps everyone from getting their "fair share".  Dinesh sets all of those myths straight and more, with the help of Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul, Noam Chomsky, Alan Dershowitz, and others.

While America may have her faults, we are still the freest, most prosperous, and most generous country in the world.  It's almost impossible to quantify all of the ways the world benefits from America's existance.  But instead of arguing about what America has done, maybe it would be easier to take a different approach to the subject... Has anyone actually stopped to think about what the world would look like without America?  I won't give any spoilers here, but suffice to say, it's not a pretty sight.   

In this new documentary from Dinesh D'Souza, creator of 2016: Obama's America, we get a sobering look at a world where America never existed.  
"This film should be seen by every patriotic American." — Jon Voight  

Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege?  Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world?

Whoa. China Won't Let Muslims Fast for Ramadan!

China Government Bans Muslims Fasting in Month Of Ramadan
Stock Illustration of stylish ramadan lantern Free Vector

oped: I do believe and think it would be wise for the USA to follow this practice against those immigrants from countries who deny all other religions from practicing or severely restrict in their respective Saudi Arabia,Iran,Qatar, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates etc...until such time that they allow other religions to openly and freely practice in their respective countries!

Onan Coca 
China is giving the Islamic world a taste of its own medicine by refusing to allow the Muslim minority to practice their religion as they see fit.
I will never, ever advocate that freedom of religion should be infringed upon… but I will admit to feeling a bit of a pleasure to see some in the Muslim community being forced to suffer the same sleights that Islamic governments commit against Christians and other religious minorities in the Islamic world. 

As Ramadan begins, China’s atheist government is taking extreme measures to stop its 20 to 30 million Muslim citizens from keeping the religiously mandated daytime fast.
Chinese attempts to suppress Islam have focused on Xinjiang, a majority-Muslim province in the country’s far west. Xinjiang’s locals, the Uyghurs, have their own language and culture. Some Uyghurs prefer calling Xinjiang “East Turkestan” and favor independence from China. (RELATED: China Forces Muslim Shopkeepers To Sell Liquor) 

According to Reuters, Chinese authorities are making Muslim officials in Xinjiang swear oaths, “guaranteeing they have no faith” and that they will not fast during the holy month. The requirement also extends to teachers and students in government-run schools.
County governments in Xinjiang have published advisories to “not engage in fasting, vigils or other religious activities,” and instructing students: “do not fast, do not enter mosques … and do not attend religious activities.” One county government cited a 90-year-old man who said that “to consciously resist religious and superstitious ideas,” he would avoid fasting and visiting mosques.

Likewise, restaurants will be required to stay open during the day, and those who do not comply face the threat of increased food-safety inspections.
China claims its restrictive policies toward religious expression are meant to curb “religious extremism.” Public terrorist attacks by Uyghur separatists have increased in recent years, and officials have responded in various parts of Xinjiang by increasing security and restricting various forms of Muslim cultural expression.
The country also severely restricts and controls free expression of Christianity, Buddhism and various new religious movements.
Egypt’s Al-Azhar University, the thousand-year-old chief scholarly institution of Sunni Islam, issued a statement Friday condemning “the Chinese authorities’ ban on Muslims from fasting and practicing their religious rituals during Ramadan.”
Ramadan lasts from mid-June to mid-July this year. The observance commemorates the month during which Muslims say Muhammad received his first revelation of the Quran.

Fasting and sexual abstinence during daylight in Ramadan is obligatory for all capable adult Muslims. It is one of Islam’s “five pillars,” or core mandates, together with belief in God and Muhammad, daily prayer, charitable giving and pilgrimage to Mecca.
Muslim customs during Ramadan in many places include nightly feasts, public celebrations, exchanging gifts and giving to charity. The month ends with Eid al-Fitr, one of Islam’s most significant holidays.


No Honest Conversations about Evil are Possible

Ha! I hate him and what he's done to this country!!!

... an evil Republican plot to make the Obama administration look bad
Bob Allen 

We can’t have honest conversations about evil because we no longer know how to recognize it.
Erick Erickson of RedState wrote a pretty moving post about the Dylann Roof massacre: “The Conversation We Won’t Have.”
Yet again we have a twenty-something white male loner or semi-loner who got a gun and decided to kill people. In most cases we have found that the mass shooter was mentally disturbed. In this case, it looks more and more that Dylann Roof was just a servant of an evil that says some of those created in the image of God are better than others or that some people are not created in the image of God at all. 

As a nation, when these things happen, we never have the conversation about real evil. We also never have the conversation about mental health. For that matter, we don’t have honest conversations about why some kid in Minnesota or Alabama would want to go join ISIS and kill their fellow citizens or why some kid would want to join neo-nazis or a gang.
Instead, we descend into partisan conversations where everything is political and neither side can concede or acknowledge the other’s points. Everyone and everything gets blamed while ignoring the actual person who killed.
My summation: We cannot have this conversation, because we have thrown away the yardstick, and no longer have a common standard to which everyone can appeal. No longer do we have an acknowledged authority. In such an environment no one is safe, because as soon as you take ultimate power out of the transcendent and put it into the hands of men, authority shifts with each new person who holds office—or has the biggest gun.

Instead of the one, true God, in America we now have 330-million pretend gods—every one of whom wants his or her own view of reality—no matter how warped—to be enshrined as law for all. That is why every discussion becomes a political discussion, because it’s all about human-crafted power, rather than bowing to the real Power outside of ourselves.
As long as we have a pantheon of gods equaling the number of people within our borders we will have an unending war for control of the alleged “Ring of Power” which resides in political office. As long as men see themselves as god, there will be war without end. If we will not freely bow to our Maker, we will find ourselves more and more forced to bow to the whims of men.
We deny evil, because to admit it exists is to confess we are.

Blacks and Hispanics Will Suffer Most from "Saving the Earth*

Carbon Tax Banksters
Mark Horne 
The increased cost of energy from carbon taxes will enrich the powerful but hurt blacks and Hispanics the most.
Back when Pat Sajack tweeted that Global Warming alarmists were racists, he was widely mocked. But he spoke the truth. Anyone who thinks about the consequences of energy prices rising will figure out that minorities who are relatively more poor on average will be more damaged.
White rich people are targeting poor minorities (and poor members of majorities too) for a lower standard of living and these minorities are being led to cheer for it.

Here is some recent confirmation at “EPA Clean Power Plan Will Hit Blacks and Hispanics Hardest.”
The Obama administration, the Environmental Protection Agency and environmental activists frequently claim that climate change will disproportionately affect poor and minority communities.
This, they argue, justifies unprecedented environmental regulations like the EPA’s soon-to-be-finalized “Clean Power Plan” to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030.
But what effect will the regulation itself have on minority communities? A new study commissioned by my organization, the National Black Chamber of Commerce, answers this question. 

The Clean Power Plan will lead to lost jobs, lower incomes and higher poverty rates for the 128 million blacks and Hispanics living in America. This should serve as a warning to federal and state lawmakers as they prepare for this sweeping regulation to go into effect in the coming months.
The underlying economics explain why this regulation will inflict the most severe harm on our communities.
The study estimates that restructuring America’s energy grid, which the EPA’s rule will require, will lead to $565 billion in higher annual electricity costs by 2030, when the regulation will be fully implemented. 

Naturally, since the poor spend a greater percentage of their income on energy, and since blacks and Hispanics are more likely to be poor, they will be hurt much more than others. But that is only part of the picture.
The study estimates that this single regulation will cause cumulative job losses for blacks and Hispanics of roughly 7 million and 12 million, respectively, over the next 20 years. Over the same time period, black families can expect their annual incomes to fall by $455, while Hispanics will take home $515 less per year.
So higher energy costs and lost jobs will be especially hitting the minority communities…. Have we left anything out?
Yes, when the price of energy goes up, then the price of everything goes up because everything requires energy to make it. So while they are paying more for energy and trying to find a new job they are also going to be struggling with rising food costs, rising housing costs, rising vehicle and transportation costs, and rising everything costs.
Eventually, if the desired carbon taxes are imposed, the economy will get much worse. Those getting the carbon taxes will be wealthier than ever. How many of them will be minorities, do you think?

The carbon tax is coming. Are you ready for a possible $10,000/year ...

Congress Moves to Protect Religious Freedom from Feds on Gay marriage

Unknown source Report this post
The way to get rid Of Obama is Obamacare. KILL OBAMACARE: don’t ...
Good news everyone! Just in time for Pride, the Supreme Court struck ...
Mark Horne 

Two Republican lawmakers are proposing a bill that would protect the religious freedom of organizations if the Supreme Court recognizes same-sex “marriage.”
If you remember, Bob Allen posted about Albert Moehler’s review of the arguments presented to the Supreme Court about same-sex “marriage.” One of the things that the government spokesman told the justices was that a decision in recognizing such pseudo-marriage would put religious employers in jeopardy. They could be required to hire employees in such relationships and to extend them benefits as if they were really married.
I have feared that many Republicans in government are simply waiting for the Supreme Court to “force” them to recognize same-sex “marriage” in the hope that they could then “reluctantly” condone it without worrying about conservative voters getting angry with them.

But there is hope from some Republicans. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Representative Raul Labrador (R-ID) have introduced the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA). The point of this law is to stop the threat that the government has already made before it can ever become a real issue.
Ryan T. Anderson, at the Daily Signal, points out that the bill
is good policy in part because it is so simple. It says that the federal government cannot discriminate against people and institutions that speak and act according to their belief that marriage is a union of one man and one woman. That’s it in a nutshell.
President Obama should support the First Amendment Defense Act given his previous stand in favor of male-female marriage, made as late as 2012, and his more recent remarks: “On an issue as sensitive as this, knowing that Americans hold a wide range of views based on deeply held beliefs, maintaining our nation’s commitment to religious freedom is also vital.” 

Riiiiiight. This is the same president who said that he opposed same-sex “marriage” and then changed his mind. Except that he did neither of those things. He pretended to oppose same-sex “marriage” and then pretended to change his mind about it. He also said we could keep our doctor, our insurance policy, and that he would run a transparent administration.
I have no doubt he will veto this bill when it passes.
But that is why the bill is so important. It needs to be part of the campaign for the 2016 presidency. And the Republican candidate needs to know what is expected of him if he should win. This all needs to be made clear and this bill will help do that.

Switzerland: Peaceful, With Guns

Switzerland has earned its reputation as a safe, neutral nation. Yet it’s hardly pacifist or gun-averse. In fact, the small and stable country has the highest firearm ownership rate in Europe: 

46 guns

for every

100 people 

That’s the the third-highest ownership rate in the world, outdone only by the U.S. (89) and Yemen (55).
The precise number of privately owned guns is unclear because many are undeclared. Switzerland also has no national centralized register, with records kept only by the 26 cantons. The Small Arm Survey published by Geneva’s Graduate Institute of International Studies (GIIS) estimates it at 3.4 million firearms for a population of nearly 8 million.
This staggering figure is partly explained by Switzerland’s unusual national defense system, which relies mostly on a citizen militia. All Swiss men aged 18 to 34 undergo military service and are issued an assault rifle or pistol to keep at home, in case they are called to protect their homeland. Historians believe the system dissuaded the Germans from invading Switzerland during World War II. 

Given how many Swiss have a weapon lying around in their basement or cupboard, Switzerland’s rate of gun-related deaths — 3 per 100,000 people — may seem low compared to the United States’, where it’s 10.3 per 100,000.
Possible explanations? One is strict gun control enforcement. Automatic weapons are banned and gun permits refused if the person has a criminal record, addiction or psychiatric problem. Others could be social or cultural, including a lack of serious drug or poverty issues, coupled with the notorious Swiss concern for safety and regard for rules.
Within Europe, Switzerland holds the second-highest rate of gun-related deaths after Finland, three times that of Germany and over 10 times that of the United Kingdom.

Mass shootings are rare. The most notorious one happened in 2001, when a man walked into the regional parliament of Zug and shot dead 14 people and injured 10 others before killing himself.
After this incident, left-wing politicians and victims associations demanded a nationwide referendum calling for the storage of military firearms in public arsenals, instead of private homes, and the establishment of a national gun registry. The referendum failed in 2011, with 56.3 percent of voters opposing it.
The issue gained momentum again in 2013, after a gunman killed four people and wounded six others in Lucerne, shortly after another man had shot three women dead and wounded two men in a small southern village.

Following these high-profile incidents, the Swiss government vowed to take measured action to increase gun control by augmenting the exchange of information between regional firearm registries. Still, Switzerland’s atypical military system and ingrained gun-friendliness are likely to ensure the country stays locked and loaded for years to come.

Salon on Charleston Mass Murder: "Is Something Wrong With the White Family? Why are Their Sons and Men so Violent?"

Screen Shot 2015-06-16 at 8.38.36 PM

oped: Oh really now to explain this:

Philip Hodges 

The article on Salon was headlined “Charleston church massacre: The violence white America must answer for,” and the subheadline asked, “Where are the white fathers? When will white leaders step up? Charleston reveals our racial double standard.”
The article goes all out with blaming “White America” for the mass murder that took place at the black Charleston church.
The questions that the author Chauncey DeVega asks throughout his article, and the statements he makes are just like those that conservatives will bring up in the context of black violence.

DeVega conveniently doesn’t mention Chicago or Detroit violence. He doesn’t mention the knockout game attacks that black teens get a kick out of. He doesn’t mention abortion and Planned Parenthood’s targeting of predominantly black women and girls. He didn’t mention the myriad cases like this one, where a group of black guys descended on one 19-year-old, stole his iPhone and slashed his face before running off:
Police are looking for four suspects seen on surveillance video beating up and robbing a man on a Bronx street in broad daylight, WPIX-TV reported

The violent assault occurred in the 1500 block of Westchester Avenue about 7 p.m. on June 9, police said.
The suspects were seen on video kicking and punching the 19-year-old victim.
While the victim was on his back on the sidewalk, one suspect appeared to be prying something from his hand.
Police said the man’s face was slashed before the suspects got away with his iPhone 6, WNBC-TV reported

Instead, he asked these eight questions:
  1. “What is radicalizing white men to commit such acts of domestic terrorism and mass shootings? Are Fox News and the right-wing media encouraging violence?
  2. Is something wrong with the white family? Why are their sons and men so violent?
  3. What should law enforcement and white politicians do about white crime?
  4. Is the Charleston mass shooting just one more sign that America needs sensible and reasonable gun control policies?
  5. Where are the white fathers in the white home?
  6. When will white leadership step up and stop white right-wing domestic terrorism?
  7. Is White American culture pathological? Why is White America so violent?
  8. Are there appropriate role models for white men and boys? Could better role models and mentoring help to prevent white men and boys from committing mass shootings and being seduced by right-wing domestic terrorism?”
Yeah, let’s pretend like the black culture has it all figured out. They don’t have any issues at all with their families, absentee fathers, drugs, crime, violence, destructive rioting, wedlock children, etc. Never mind the fact that most acts of violence these days are either black-on-black or black-on-white. But let’s ignore those harsh realities and focus on one case where a white guy shot and killed nine black people and claim that this exact scenario has been playing out for decades and decades.

The truth is that this guy should be hunted down, arrested, given his trial, and when convicted, executed for murder. There’s no need to embellish and politicize the story by claiming that “White America” is to blame for this atrocious act. There’s only one person to blame for what happened, and it’s the murderer himself. Fox News and “right-wing media” have absolutely no control over him.
It seems as if when blacks are the victims of white violence, that only demonstrates a problem with “white culture” and its love affair with “hate crimes.” When white people are the victims of black violence, that’s not actually violence, per se. It’s “social justice.”

Violent Racist Martyrs Praying Christians

Charleston Shooting
Onan Coca 

On Wednesday evening a young man entered the Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church near downtown Charleston, South Carolina. An hour later he walked out, having created havoc after ending the lives of 9 of our brothers and sisters in Christ and wrecking the lives of their loved ones in the process.
Police have arrested 21-year old Dylann Roof of Columbia, South Carolina. They found him at about 11 am on Thursday morning about an hour west of Charlotte, North Carolina, after locals reported a suspicious vehicle in the area. A gun was found in his vehicle at the time of arrest, and thus far authorities say he has been “cooperative.”

As soon as his name was made public, news outlets began combing through Roof’s life to see what they could dig up about him. One of the things they found was a picture of him in High School wearing a jacket with flag patches of racist-era South Africa and Rhodesia. Definitive proof of racism, no, but an indicator of where his values lie, yes. As of Wednesday afternoon investigators from Charleston were flying up to question him about the shootings in Charleston.
Back in South Carolina 6 women and 3 men are dead, having been martyred for their faith and having likely been murdered for the shade of melanin in their skin. Among them, their Pastor, 41-year old Clementa Pinckney, who also happened to be a Democrat and a South Carolina state senator.

From the Gospel Coalition:

Clementa Carlos Pinckney (1973-2015)—a Democratic member of the South Carolina Senate and the senior pastor of Mother Emanuel A.M.E. [African Methodist Episcopal] Church—was martyred last night, along with eight other church members, while leading a Bible study and prayer meeting within his church in Charleston, S.C.
Pinckney (age 41) is survived by his wife, Jennifer (whom he married in 1999), and their two children, Eliana and Malana.
At the age of 23, he was the youngest African-American in South Carolina history to be elected to the legislature. He began preaching when he was 13 years old and was first appointed to preach at the age of 18.
After earning a degree in business administration and a master’s degree in public administration, he enrolled in Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary (ELCA) in Columbia, S.C., graduating with an MDiv in 2008. 

In 2010 he was named pastor of Mother Emanuel AME. He was a fourth-generation pastor. 

The group gathered at Mother Emanuel AME was in the middle of a Bible study, gathered together to learn God’s Word when a monster entered their midst. Our hearts break for our dear brothers and sisters in Charleston, the pain felt now so unnecessary and dark. We weep with them as they mourn the loss of these 9 innocent lives.
The shooting should remind us of two very real evils loosed in our culture today – the sin of racism still breathes in America and the persecution of the saints is real. This evil man chose a church for a reason. He could have gone to a mall or a restaurant or a grocery store or just about anywhere… but he chose a church. That is not insignificant.

Our prayers and love go out to the people of Mother Emanuel AME. We mourn with you for this horrible and destructive act, we mourn the passing of our brothers and sisters, and we weep with you for the pain that you are suffering through. May our God be glorified through you even in this terrible experience. We love you and we will be praying for you.

Here is Pastor Pinckney giving a short history of the very important Mother Emanuel AME Church, which is the oldest AME church in the South and was founded in 1816. Over the years they have known persecution, martyrdom, pain and victory… 

The hypocrisy of Progressive Liberalism on the death penalty...

... punishment, opponents of the death penalty have made it less safe
I for one support the death penalty for criminals who take innocent lives...I do not want to support them for 20-30-40 + years of their remaining  lives with free food,shelter,medical care and entertainment under a life sentence while their victims are dead and buried ...lives cut short!  

On the other hand the looney left bleeding hearts as well as progressive democrats support abortion ala carte',death panels ie: The Teri Schiavo case... pull the plug they screamed she is not worthy~she is brain dead...her husband [a looney left progressive] has the right to decide her fate regardless of her families wishes! Then they turn around and decry the death penalty for criminals is inhumane...go figure

Need I really say more...well hell ya' progressive liberals make me sick to my stomach...

cue the Teri Schiavo case:
Was Terri Schiavo "out of it" and totally hooked up to many "life support" machines right before her death? Or not?

"Where there is life, there is hope." ~ Terri Schiavo

"Where there is ignorance, politely but FIRMLY strike with both fists with our 2 best weapons: 1: knowledge is power! 2: Love conquers all" ~ Gordon Wayne Watts

PS: This video goes out to all those clueless people (whether they are well-intentioned and simply uninformed --or actually uncaring), I will post ROCK-SOLID PROOF that Terri (and many others, I'm quite sure!) were not "brain dead" -- Seeing is believing!

Stunning: A Former Israeli Official Just Tore Off Obama’s Mask And Exposed Who He Really Is

The White House Watch

Former Israeli ambassador Michael Oren believes the current low point in relations between the U.S. and Israel is mostly of Barack Obama’s doing.
“The past six years have seen successive crises in U.S.-Israeli relations, and there is a need to set the record straight,” Oren writes in a Wall Street Journal op-ed published earlier this week.
Oren served as ambassador to the United States from 2009 to 2013 and is currently a member of the Israeli Knesset. He ran against Benjamin Netanyahu in the March parliamentary elections, but is now part of the coalition government formed under Netanyahu’s leadership.
In his op-ed and in his new book–Ally: My Journey Across the American-Israeli Divide–Oren makes his case how relations between the traditionally strong allies have reached their current juncture.

Applying his tools as an historian, he believes Obama’s views about America itself have played into how he views Israel and the Middle East.
Speaking to Breitbart News last week, Oren recalled his impressions of Obama’s memoir Dreams From My Father. Obama said “nothing good about America,” Oren says. “Here was a man ‘without a word of praise or gratitude to America’–and yet ‘no one was listening’ to what Obama truly believed.”
Oren points to Obama’s famous Cairo speech, which he made a few months after taking office in 2009.

During the speech, he affirmed the aspirations of the Palestinians, noting the “pain of dislocation” they have had to endure. Meanwhile, he appeared to chastise Israel for the “daily humiliations – large and small – that come with occupation” that the Palestinians live under. (It should be noted that in the most recent elections, the number of Arab members of the Knesset jumped from 12 to 17.)
Oren notes that that speech alone did much to harden the Palestinians’ belief that the United States’ support for Israel had shifted.
In his Wall Street Journal op-ed, the former ambassador points out that in “May 2011, the president altered 40 years of U.S. policy by endorsing the 1967 lines with land swaps—formerly the Palestinian position—as the basis for peace-making. If Mr. Netanyahu appeared to lecture the president the following day, it was because he had been assured by the White House, through me, that no such change would happen.”
As reported by Western Journalism, following Netanyahu’s election in March, President Obama delayed calling the prime minister to congratulate him, while members of his State Department and his White House spokesman indicated the U.S. may pull support for Israel at the United Nations–paving the way for an imposed two-state solution.

Oren himself experienced the possibility of this shift in a prior conversation with then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice in 2010, who threatened to pull support at the international body unless Israel agreed to “freeze all settlement activity.”
“If you don’t appreciate the fact that we defend you night and day, tell us,” Rice fumed. “We have other important things to do.”
“Not a single brick” more, the president reportedly demanded of Netanyahu, wiping out assurances George W. Bush had made that major settlements in the West Bank would be included in the negotiations. Meanwhile, no demands were made of the Palestinians, who twice turned down peace offers by Israel that included most of the West Bank and portions of Jerusalem.
Dan Shapiro, the United States’ ambassador to Israel, dismisses Oren’s accusations outright about Obama’s views towards and treatment of Israel.
“He was an ambassador in the past, but he is now a politician and an author who wants to sell books. Sometimes an ambassador has a limited point of view into ongoing efforts. What he wrote does not reflect the truth,” Shapiro said. He describes the nation’s current relationship as “effective.”

Oren concedes the two nations’ militaries still work closely, and polling shows the populations still have much good will towards each other. But according to Oren, the problem is at the top–and Obama is mostly to blame.

Dear Idiot Gun-Grabbers, Women Need Guns More Than You


Have you heard the very sad story of New Jersey’s Carol Bowne, the woman who was murdered by her crazy ex-boyfriend… while awaiting her gun permit? It was such a heartbreaking case, even RINO Governor Chris Christie is changing his gun-control stance as a result.
Yet amid this tragedy, there’s an underlying issue this incident exposes that no one wants to talk about. Because if you do, you’re sexist. Or racist. Or some kind of other “-ist”… but I’m brave. So here goes it.
Men and women are different. 

Boom. There. I said it.
Somewhere along the line, feminism decided that what women really need is to be treated exactly like men, to pretend that despite science and biology, we’re no different from them. We’ve demanded equal treatment and, in the process, rejected much of the best of womanhood – like gentle persuasion, motherly kindness, and anything that makes us appear somehow “weak,” “delicate,” or “less” than a man.

Except none of these things make us less then men. We never were and never will be. But we are different.
And when we reject those differences, people get hurt.
As a general rule, men are stronger than women. We’re built differently. (Get over it.)
If a man decides he wants to overpower a woman, he’s most likely going to be able to do it. Unless that woman has been trained in really, really powerful self-defense methods… or is equipped with a firearm. And frankly, most women, even if they possess basic self-defense skills, will remain powerless against a male assailant.
The only thing that really gives a woman a fighting chance to defend herself? A gun.
“But what if the rapist has a gun? Then what?” Well then, she better shoot first.
When 2nd Amendment rights are restricted, the people most negatively affected are women.
In New York City – one of the most anti-gun cities in the entire US – a 911 call regarding domestic violence is made every two minutes. That’s 700 calls a day, or 263,207 calls a year. Just in New York City. 39 people, most of them women, were murdered in New York by a spouse or partner in 2012. That’s 9.3 percent of the city’s 419 total murders that year.
You want to empower women? Train them in the proper use of a firearm, and watch what happens. 34-year-old Dietta Gueye of Detroit made news last week when she singlehandedly held off 5 home invaders with her handgun. Check out her story.

We pray for Carol Bowne’s family, and we also hope to never see another story like hers. What we need are more stories like Dietta’s, stories of women who’ve been truly empowered, who know how to use a gun, aren’t afraid to fight the bad guys, can protect themselves… and in doing so, maybe even bring a little more justice to the world.
But that won’t happen until liberals get their hands off our guns.

Charleston Shooting: The Common Thread Isn’t ‘Race’, It’s Godlessness


I hate that this is where we are in this country. I hate that a reprehensible, stomach-turning act like the Charleston shooting ever takes place. I hate the vitriolic responses to it on twitter. And I really, really hate that I have to write something, anything other than:
My prayers are with the victim’s families, and America this morning.
I also really hate that that statement in and of itself will generate controversy. There was a time in this country where we could mourn together and pray together in unity, without fear of offending anyone. We are no longer at that point.
There was a point in this country where tragedies like this at the very least provided us with an opportunity to put down our political weapons, and grow closer as Americans, as humans. As you can see by the tweets below… we are no longer at that point.



I get the irony in that responding to these tragedy-profiteers would be politicizing the issue myself. It’s not lost on me. So I won’t do that. The time for that debate will come, but this is not that time.
SC1What I find shocking is that here we have a hateful, violent man who unjustifiably killed Americans. Everyone I know is absolutely heart-broken. There is nobody out there in the real world right now deliberately politicizing this issue… aside from those who have a loud bull-horn and directly profit from doing so.
Please don’t let those con-men divide us.
What’s happened in Charleston is beyond words, beyond humanity. As evidence comes in, and we find out the political/ideological agenda at hand, believe me I’ll be the first to label this sub-human a “terrorist” if it fits. But this is a man who deliberately targeted and opened fire on a church. That is a Godless man.

Hamas terrorists who target Israeli schoolchildren are Godless men. The 911 hijackers who drove those planes into the twin towers were Godless men. The people who defend them are Godless, and the people who use the tragedies for political gain are equally Godless.
I know atheists will have a problem reading this; but as someone who’s tried to remain remarkably consistent in keeping my personal faith away from legislation, this is an appropriate time to discuss it. This is why faith exists.
Listen, I don’t think anyone would deny that mass-murderers are Godless people. I also think that many people will find just as much discomfort in acknowledging a definitively Godless reaction from the culture at large. When something this horrendous happens, and we can’t all as a country join together for even one day to pray and support each other…
That’s Godlessness too. America, we can do better. We need to do better.
Prayers to you and yours.

Dang Dana got's Ta Tas...never noticed before...thought she was going to go all Pee Wee Herman on Eric Bolling re: 'The Donald'...go Dana ya cracked me up:) 

Rachel Dolezal was in a SEX TAPE

I see a reality show in her future.
Check it out:
Rachel Dolezal accused her ex-husband of forcing her to take part in a homemade sex tape, Daily Mail Online can reveal.
Dolezal, 37, admitted participating in ‘sexual acts’ on camera with Kevin Moore, who has been pictured in public for the first time since their wedding photo appeared.
However, Dolezal – a serial litigant who resigned her post as leader of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP Monday – insisted she took part in the video against her will.
The lurid claim was one of a raft of damaging accusations she leveled at Moore, 37, in a bid to deny him access to their young son Franklin. Moore denied the allegations.  

  • Dolezal wed African American physical therapist Kevin Moore in 2000
  • But their marriage ended five years later in a bitter court battle
  • She claims in court documents she suffered ‘years’ of ‘physical, emotional, sexual and verbal abuse’ at his hands and offered the sex tape as proof
  • Her brother Joshua wrote in his memoir that his sister told him: ‘Sometimes he’s on top of me before I’m even awake’
  • Moore denied the claims of abuse – and friends describe him as a committed Christian who was deeply distressed by the ‘wild accusations’

WHITE TEENAGE GIRL: Killed By 39yr. Old
BLACK THUG over beer pong rules... 

Will the mainstream media cover this atrocity as racism? The teen girl was at a college party when she was shot by an uninvited thug over the beer pong rules.
A Texas man is facing multiple charges after, allegedly shooting dead a 19-year-old girl at a college party following an argument over the rules of beer pong.
Ronald McNeil, 39, of College Station, is charged with murder, deadly conduct for discharge of a firearm, and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the May 3 shooting that left 19-year-old Lacie LaRose dead. 

McNeil allegedly fired 15 shots outside the home on San Benito Drive at around 3am. A bullet struck one man in the leg and another was struck in the arm by shrapnel, but LaRose was fatally shot in the neck.
She was pronounced dead at around 5am at the College Station Medical Center, NBC reports.
LaRose, a student at Blinn College studying animal sciences, attended a May 2 house party along with many others gathering to watch the Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight on TV, KWTX.
The 39-year-old McNeil, who lives just across the street from the home, showed up to the party uninvited along with his group of friends, The Eagle reports.

Vatican: The Extraction and Burning of Oil and Gas is Evil.

oped: Yes indeed the Vatican elected the proverbial 'Last Pope" I left the church decades longer a practicing Catholic...I still adhere to the old teachings as a Independant Christian with no church affiliation...way too many scandals and rediculous policies!
This also applies to my being a Independant Conservative no affiliation with GOP/DNC

Based on a Google translation of the document, here’s what you need to know about what the draft says.
1) Global warming is real
While the document largely focuses on theology and morality, it does go headlong into the science of the causes and impacts of climate change. The draft document says there is a scientific consensus that the climate is warming because of human actions, and that it is reflected in rising sea levels and increasing extreme weather events. The document even goes further into specific consequences of climate change on biodiversity and marine life, among others.

2) Fossil fuels are a problem
The encyclical states that fossil fuels, such as oil and to a lesser extent natural gas, should be phased out without delay in favor of renewable energy. While renewable power is built up, the encyclical says, it is permissible to rely on fossil fuels, but that overall, the extraction and burning of oil and gas is evil. The document further calls for countries to adopt policies that will reduce emissions of carbon dioxides and other gases.

Hitler Survivor Warns Americans: 'Keep Your Guns And Buy More Guns' Don’t Listen To Commies

84-year-old Kitty Werthmann lived through Hitler’s reign and has some dire warnings for Americans to not let history repeat itself with Barack Obama.
She sees striking resemblances between Obama’s actions and Hitler’s – from the redistribution of wealth to the nationalization of health care to gun confiscation and other issues.
The Nazification of the United States is almost complete. From dramatically increasing government spending, to raising taxes to colossal levels to the consolidation of almost everything under a central authority, Hitler’s Germany and our current America are completely parallel.

Miley Cyrus Burns Bible On Stage to Promote Tolerance

oped: Listen up you little twit...your music sucks...your new look sucks...your big brave activism sucks!
If you are so brave and committed to your LGBT activism how about burning the Qur'an after all they (Islam/ISIS et al) behead homosexuals and naughty girls as yourself! Not Christians we just do not agree with Gay marriage and rebuke perversion in general...Your Daddy Billy Ray failed as a father...'spare the rod spoil the child' Grow up you are acting like a twelve year old rebelling against your parents! 

Immediately following her interview, in which Miley Cyrus confessed to being “the least judgmental person in the world” and “understanding and accepting of everyone,” she started her next show by setting a Bible on fire.
In an opening act for her recent concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Cyrus walked out onto the stage and held the Bible out to the crowd saying, “Here is a tribute to all you Jesus-lovers out there.” She then set the pages on fire and yelled “Hillary ’16!” before dropping the book to the ground. As the music started, Cyrus began to sing while squatting over the burning Bible and performing a sexually provocative dance with repetitive thrusting hip movements, called ‘twerking.’ 

A few moments later the stage went dark, lit up only by two large red inverted crosses, usually associated with satanic worship. Cyrus began to dance around a large phallic object, using it as a stripper pole, while removing parts of her clothing. At that point about one fifth of her audience got up and left the concert, telling MTV reporters in the lobby that the display was extremely offensive and they didn’t feel comfortable remaining in that environment.

OBAMA’S DREAMERS: 121 Criminal Aliens Released By BHO Have Been Charged With Murder

Screen Shot 2015-06-15 at 7.01.19 PM
And that’s just the numbers since 2010! Are these the dreamers that Obama talks about? Those are definitely some interesting dreams they have.
One-hundred twenty-one illegal aliens with criminal convictions who were released by federal immigration authorities back onto U.S. streets between 2010 and 2014 have been charged with “homicide-related” crimes.
That’s according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which released data in response to a letter sent in February by Senate Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Arizona U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake.

The senators sent the letter after Mexican national Apolinar Altamirano allegedly gunned down Grant Ronnebeck, a Mesa, Ariz. convenience store clerk, over a pack of cigarettes on Jan. 22. ICE released Altamirano in Jan. 2013 on $10,000 bond related to a burglary charge. After his release, Altamirano was accused of threatening a woman, but he remained in the U.S.
In response to Grassley’s and Flake’s letter, Sarah Saldaña, the director of ICE, stated that 33 of the 121 illegal aliens who have been accused of “homicide-related offenses” had been released on bond at the discretion of the Justice Department’s Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR) after committing their original crime. Another 24 were released because ICE was unable to obtain approval to deport alien convicts within the 180-day timeframe mandated by federal law.

Christian DJ Refuses To Play Gay Man’s Birthday Party – Here’s What Happened Next


When Michael Lampiris turned down a potential gig hosting a local birthday party, the co-owner of Ultrasound Deejays became the latest in a line of Christian business owners caught between their own guiding principles and laws ostensibly designed to curb discrimination.
The Gaithersburg, Md., business, which provides DJ services through an extensive network of professionals, prominently states in its policy that it follows “biblical morality,” which means no participation in “any event involving homosexual celebration or activity.”
When it became apparent that a recent request was for the ex-partner – and current roommate – of a local gay man now living with his current partner, Lampiris knew the event would constitute a compromise of his values.

“I just said, ‘We won’t be able to do it. We’re a Christian organization and it would go against our faith. I’m sorry,’” he recalled.
As for an existing Maryland law prohibiting discrimination against gays, Lampiris said he is not familiar with it. He noted that his business would turn down any event its owners consider immoral. In fact, the aforementioned company policy also states Ultrasound Deejays will not provide services for any party including psychics, magicians, provocative dance, or a number of other activities deemed unbiblical.
Nevertheless, Tom Tsakounis has since filed a complaint with the Montgomery County Human Rights Commission, alleging Lampiris discriminated against gay patrons.
Though Lampiris is not expecting a bitter legal battle, he said he is determined to “make a stand if the good Lord is willing,” noting that Christians “ought to obey God rather than men.”
Should Christian business owners be forced to violate their principles in catering to homosexuals? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Watch: Former Obama Classmate Just Made One MAJOR Accusation About The President


A former classmate of President Obama’s contends the commander-in-chief himself is the greatest threat to the country.
Former Libertarian vice presidential nominee and entrepreneur Wayne Allyn Root asserts in a commentary earlier this month on Personal Liberty that “Obama is divebombing our nation’s economy the same way that the Germanwings airline co-pilot Andreas Lubitz crashed his plane into the ground in France two months ago.” He called the plan the “Cloward-Piven strategy.”
The plan is simple: To destroy capitalism and ‘American exceptionalism,’ you overwhelm the system with spending, entitlements, regulations and debt. The economy comes to a halt; full-time jobs are killed; businesses fail in record numbers; the middle class is murdered financially; the debt implodes; and the economy is overwhelmed.
Root graduated from Columbia University in 1983, the same year as Obama.
“Capitalism dies as a majority of Americans wind up hooked on welfare, food stamps, free healthcare and government checks like a drug addict is hooked by a drug dealer on heroin, or crack cocaine, or crystal meth. Obama is America’s drug dealer. But his drug of choice is government dependency,” Root continued
To make this plan work, Obama needs you hopeless, helpless, clueless and losing all faith in God, yourself, individualism, personal responsibility and capitalism. He needs you scared out of your wits and desperate. He needs you believing that only government can save you.
“You don’t have to believe me,” Root added. “Just look at the evidence. The proof came in last Friday. The first quarter GDP growth was negative.”

As The Wall Street Journal pointed out at the end of last month, the GDP decreased by 0.7 percent during the first three months of 2015. This is the third separate quarter the economy has experienced negative growth since the recession ended in 2009.
“Is Obama an ignorant incompetent idiot, dangerous to himself and everyone around him, or a purposeful suicide bomber out to destroy America and capitalism? Because it’s either one or the other,” Root said.

A funny thing happened on ‘White Appreciation Day’
oped:Kudos to thats how to assimilate ! 
Can you imagine having a NAAWP, or a White Entertainment Network. How about a white college fund for all those "WASTED" minds. Or companies allowing a white employee network. How about a holiday for a white person solely because he or she is WHITE. Or a holiday for an Asian, or even more specifically for a Chinese person AND a Japanese person AND a Cambodian AND a Vietnamese.
Wow. The unions would be thrilled. The whole year would be holidays and NO one would ever work.

When do we get to appreciate people by the content of their character instead of the color of their skin? But if this isn’t ok, all the other race holidays aren’t ok.
Check it out:
A Hispanic-owned restaurant in northern Colorado held a “white appreciation day” on Thursday as part of a promotional effort to mock the nation’s focus on race, and it was a big hit with customers looking to buck political correctness. 

Edgar Antillon, who bought the Rubbin’ Buttz BBQ restaurant in January with Miguel Jiminez, said the response to their controversial holiday had been overwhelmingly supportive despite early death threats from some outraged users on social media.
“What I’ve learned is that a lot more people understand what we’re trying to do,” Antillon told the Washington Times.
Antillon said the promotion began as a joke when he and Jiminez were discussing the divisive nature of Black History Month and Hispanic Heritage Month. The two decided that a day in appreciation of whites would be an effective way to get their eatery’s name on the map and make a political statement at the same time.

If Rachel Dolezal Isn’t Black, How Is Caitlyn Jenner A Woman?

WHoah! Vanity Fair Releases Rachel Dolezal ‘Trans-Racial’ Cover ... Rachel Dolezal: 'Black' Civil Rights Champion 'Outed As White' By Her ...
oped: What can one say?...oh wait I already>

Silly facts like DNA doesn’t matter to liberals. Only feelings.
Check it out:
Spokane NAACP president Rachel Dolezal, a professor of Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University, was outed earlier this week by her parents as being white.
In what has to be one of the more bizarre news stories of 2015, Dolezal pretended for years to be black. Social media accounts posted pictures of a black man who she said was her father (he’s not). She regularly wrote about her black son Izaiah (he’s actually her adopted brother).
It also appears as though she repeatedly lied about being the victim of race-based hate crimes. She claims to have been the victim of at least nine separate hate crimes.

As you might expect, this story has gotten a lot of attention, namely because Dolezal isn’t black. She’s white. Very white. According to her parents, her heritage is primarily German and Czech. Naturally, people are a bit shocked that a white person would so brazenly pretend to be black for so many years.

Sneak: Republicans Plan New Obamatrade Push

oped: Hello... Rep Paul Ryan said: We have to pass it so you can read it... alla Nancy Pelosi !
If Republicans would open the process up, maybe conservatives could get behind this. But the secretive nature that they have done with this does not inspire trust.
Check it out:
It appears there will be another attempt by Tuesday to force through new executive powers for President Obama. A vote for TAA next week is a vote to send fast-track to the President’s desk and to grant him these broad new executive authorities. If that happens, it will empower the President to form a Pacific Union encompassing 40 percent of the world’s economy and 12 nations—each with one equal vote. Once the union is formed, foreign bureaucrats will be required to meet regularly to write the Commission’s rules, regulations, and directives—impacting Americans’ jobs, wages, and sovereignty. The union is chartered with a “Living Agreement,” and there is no doubt it will seek to expand its membership and reach over time. 

Fast-track will not only apply to the Pacific Union, but can expedite an unlimited number of yet-unseen international compacts for six years. There are already plans to advance through fast-track the Trade in Services Agreement, the goal of which includes labor mobility among more than 50 nations, further eroding the ability of the American people to control their own affairs.
Americans do not want this, did not ask for it, and are pleading from their hearts for their lawmakers to stop it.

The same people projecting the benefits of leaping into a colossal new economic union could not even accurately predict the impact of a standalone agreement with South Korea. The latter deal, which promised to boost our exports to them $10 billion, instead only budged them less than $1 billion, while South Korea’s imports to us increased more than $12 billion, nearly doubling our trading deficit. This new agreement will only further increase our trading deficit: opening our markets to foreign imports while allowing our trading partners to continue their non-tariff barriers that close their markets to ours.

Obama Has ‘Backup Amnesty’ in Secretive Trade Agreement

oped: Hello... Rep Paul Ryan said: We have to pass it so you can read it... alla Nancy Pelosi !
More reasons not to trust anything about this secretive bill.
Check it out:
Best-selling author Ann Coulter gave an interview to IJReview to discuss her new book, “Adios America!” and touched upon the secretive Trade and International Services Agreement.
“This is the ‘backup amnesty’ to Obama’s executive amnesty,” Ann Coulter told IJReview, “dash – funded by Republicans, if that doesn’t get struck down by the courts.”
In the potential trade agreement, per Wikileaks, there is a provision known as the “TiSA Annex on Movement of Natural Persons.”

As Conservative Review put it, the agreement that President Obama is rushing off to Capitol Hill to save would relax visa restrictions for guest workers from a number of nations, including Pakistan:
One very disturbing aspect of TISA is the document uncovered by WikiLeaks revealing an entire section on immigration, referred to as “Movement of Natural Persons.” This section discusses commitments by the parties not to place undue burdens on visas and singles out face-to-face interviews as an example of “overly burdensome procedures.” [see the footnote on page 7]

Islamic State Tweets Pam Geller’s Home Address Telling Supporters to Kill Her

Islamic State is showing that it has power in our country and will gain further followers with this outburst.
Check it out:
The personal address of an anti-Muslim activist was tweeted Friday from a Twitter account bearing the name of a man believed to be a British Islamic State jihadist kingpin. The tweet about Pamela Geller, who heads a group called the American Freedom Defense Initiative, came just hours after a third man connected to a plot to kill her and murder Boston police was arrested.
“#GoForth,” the Tweet urged via a hashtag after revealing Geller’s New York City address, apartment number and all. The Twitter account that sent out the address has since been suspended.

In May, two gunmen were killed and one security guard was injured in Texas during a controversial “draw Muhammad” contest that was organized by Geller. ISIS soon after claimed responsibility for the attack at the contest, which welcomed renditions of the Prophet Muhammad, a provocative act for many Muslims who believe that the prophet should not be depicted or mocked in any way.

Islamic Outreach Group uses Mobile Quran to Win Hearts and Minds of Charlotte

oped: Yes indeed it has begun: 

Michael Ware 
When we think about Islam, one of the first things that we think of is terrorism.  There may be other things that come to mind, but usually that is the first.  It is hard not to think in such a way with ISIS and Hamas dominating the Mainstream news.  Well, there is a group of Muslims in Charlotte NC that is trying to change that perception.
Fox 46 reports

The Quran Mobile is rolling around Charlotte and Muslims hope it educates people about their faith.
Concerned about the public’s perception of Islam after radical Islamic terrorists like ISIS have dominated the news cycle, Charlotte Muslims with the American Islamic Outreach Center wanted to take action.
The group, American Islamic Outreach Center is a part of the foundation by the same name.  Their main headquarters are in Franklin NC.  This group has been quietly active in the Charlotte area.  Working with Habitat for Humanity, distributing food to the needy, partnering with a Hindu group, and many other efforts.  Now the Outreach Center wishes to reach more people through the Mobile Quran.

Fox 46 continues
The goal is to drive the Quran Mobile around Charlotte during busy hours. They hope to spread the message that Islam is a peaceful religion and the radical terrorists they see on television don’t represent the 15,000 Muslims that live in Charlotte.
The problem is that though this might be the message they want to convey, it may not be a true message.  It seems that we have a problem that needs to be addressed.  First, to make such a statement, you would have had to poll all the 15,000 Muslims in Charlotte.  I am sure they did not.  Second, how does the reporter know that this is not an accurate representation?  Well, the Outreach Center told them it was not.

46 continues
“You got everything from book mobiles to bat mobiles so why not a Quran Mobile,” Zahir Shaikh, director of the Quran Mobile said.
“Islam is portrayed in a very negative light because of the actions of some crazy people out there. But 99 percent of Muslims are good hearted just like any other denomination,” Shaikh said.
When I read that statement, it seemed a little exaggerated.  So, I did a little research.  And for the sake of being fair, I went to a source that no one could say was leaning to my side.

CNN reported
There are between 1.2 and 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. Half are women. While a substantial percentage of Islamic women support jihad, less than one in fifty Islamic terrorist acts is actually perpetrated by a female. That leaves us with a maximum pool of jihadists that is just over 50% of the total population.
The overwhelming preponderance of terrorist acts are conducted by young Muslim men 15 to 30 years old. This age bracket covers about half of the male population of the Islamic world, leaving us with a potential jihad pool of 25% of all Muslims – approximately 300 million people.
Wow! 25%!  Now, hold on.  This is a percentage of potential jihadists.  This is not a percentage of the people who are and/or agree with the Islamist’s cause.  But when we look at the voter record for the Islamic world the numbers become frightening.

Therefore, based upon the most objective data available to us, at least 60% of all Muslims have the potential to be jihadists by way of their fundamentalist voting patterns. That is to say, Islam has grown substantially closer to its salafi, and thus terrorist, roots over the past decade. It is safe to say that 750 million Muslims are fundamentalists trying to follow Allah’s orders and Muhammad’s example. And as fundamentalists, they are potential jihadists.
The problem with the Outreach Center, it is like a sedative.  These people are not terrorists.  They may not agree with terrorism, but they serve to lull us to sleep.  They do not do the cutting, they just serve us up to those who do, by lying about their religion.  Make no mistake, just because they do not agree with ISIS’s violent means do not think that they do not have the same goal.
