I become more and more hardened in my long-standing conviction that Problem Number 1 is the lying, cheating Globalist Western ruling elites and their open borders ideology. Problem Number 2 is Muslim Jihadists and other hostile aliens."Islamization and Hijacked Patriotism." By Fjordman, Gates of Vienna, 1/27/15.

“The America we thought we knew, ladies and gentlemen, is a mirage. It’s a memory. It’s a foreign country,” Jeff Deist, Ron Paul’s former press secretary and chief of staff, told the group. “And that’s precisely why we should take secession seriously.”"Daddy issues: Are Ron Paul’s hard-core stands a problem for son’s presidential bid? While Rand seeks donors, his father talks secession." By David A. Fahrenthold, Washington Post, 1/25/15. A cheesy title for this article but it's the Washington Post after all.

“We don’t have true democracy,” [Ron Paul] told the Kremlin-based Russia Today network (although he said that his son was one of the forces for good in Washington). “We have a monopoly of ideas that are controlled by leaders of two parties, and though they call it two parties, it’s really one philosophy.”

South Africa's President Jacob Zuma is attending the Davos World Economic Forum with a message that investment and business are key to South Africa’s economic success. He leaves behind a simmering row caused by Zelda la Grange, Nelson Mandela's former personal assistant who has said she would feel more welcome in France than in her native South Africa."Former Mandela assistant sparks South Africa race row." By RFI, 1/21/15.
La Grange says potential white investors from Europe and the United States should be told they’re not welcome in South Africa.
She later apologised for any hurt her remarks might have caused but she has not withdrawn her assertion that President Jacob Zuma is making whites the scapegoats for South Africa’s ills.

Here: "SHOCKING on the street interview on racism in America." By Kevin Jackson, The Black Sphere, 1/22/15.
Spoiler alert: White people are the devil. America is "built on racism." If you are black you are a victim of racism. Darren Wilson should be killed, given "expedited justice" [like, um, lynching?]. Michael Brown wasn't a thug, he was a "good dude." Black people are the real Jews.

Q. What has Barack Obama done for black people?

Hundreds of protesters were out in force Saturday at a Muslim gathering [in Garland, Texas] blacked out to the media called “Stand with the Prophet” whose keynote speaker, an imam from Brooklyn, has been linked as an unindicted co-conspirator with the deadly 1993 World Trade Center bombing.The event spokeswoman Page Spence, had this to say:
The imam, Siraj Wahhaj, once remarked, “It is my duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the U.S. Constitution with the Quran.”
President Obama formally invited Wahhaj to give a “juma,” or invocation, at the Democratic National Convention in 2012, but his invitation was withdrawn after public criticism of the decision became widespread.
We are peaceful people. We want nothing more than to be part of this culture and community. We are level-headed peaceable people who are not trying to convert every single person to our religion.So, wanting "nothing more than to be a part of this culture and community" involves inviting a Muslim religious leader to be a keynote speaker who thinks it's the duty of all Muslims to replace the Constitution. Call me crazy but I think declaring one's intention to do away with our Constitution is sedition pure and simple and doesn't remotely equate to being "a part of this culture and community." And this schmuck they invited was the keynote speaker?
The translation for patriots of this disgraceful woman's remarks is, "We hope you buy the ridiculous lies we tell you about Islam and our intentions. If you believe that having your Constitution replaced by the Koran is consistent with getting along with you and being part of America, well then, you're stupider than we thought."
I can't find a reference for the date or the words of Imam Wahhaj to the effect that the shariah must replace the Koran. Lots of articles on the web indicate that he "once remarked" that that is the case. I will, however, go way out on a limb and express my opinion that he was quoted correctly above. One source indicated that he said what he said prior to being invited to deliver that "juma" at the 2012 Dem National Convention. Eighteen years having gone by since the attack on WTC, I'm thinking that the Democrats (or Obama himself) did know Wahhaj was an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive crime, so Democrat thinking appears to be thoroughly anti-American and corrupt.
To the same effect on Islamic subversion and complete and utter bullshit on wanting to integrate into American society:
A leader for the Texas branch of the Council on American Islamic Relations has told a crowd at a rally for Islam that members of the faith really shouldn’t be bound by American law.It's, like, you know, a vindication of Daniel Webster who, in 1852, addressed the New York Historical Society:
“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll, the executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch, a keynote speaker as the recent rally.
The Constitution has enemies, secret and professed. . . . They have hot heads and cold hearts. They are rash, reckless, and fierce for change, and with no affection for the existing institutions of their country. . . . Other enemies there are, more cool, and with more calculation. These have a deeper and more fixed and dangerous purpose. . . . There are those in the country, who profess, in their own words, even to hate the Constitution.From the evidence you've just read, in what way could you conclude that that day is not dawning in our own lifetime?
Friends of the Constitution must rally and unite . . . act, with immovable firmness, like a band of brothers, with moderation and conciliation . . . looking only to the great object set before them, the preservation of the Constitution, bequeathed to them by their ancestors. They must gird up their loins for the work. It is a duty which they owe to these ancestors, and to the generations which are to succeed them.
Daniel Webster concluded: “Gentlemen, I give my confidence, my countenance, my heart and hand, my entire co-operation to all good men . . . who are willing to stand by the Constitution. . . . I hardly know . . . the manner of our political death. . . . We shall die no lingering death. . . . An earthquake would shake the foundations of the globe, pull down the pillars of heaven, and bury us at once in endless darkness. Such may be the fate of this country and its institutions. May I never live, to see that day!

20 more years of this and I'm going to start thinking that blacks really don't want to conform to civilized standards.
And then there's this from Paul Kersey:
With Obama's My Brother's Keeper Program, the reality of the dysfunction inherent in the black community can no longer be contained to "urban" environments: wherever blacks are found in America, the reality of the standard deviation separating them from the standards whites have established is easily discernible in every statistic measuring misery...

"American soldiers, we are coming, watch your back.""Obama's Muslim Sympathies Grow Curiouser And Curiouser." Editorial, Investor's Business Daily, 1/12/15.
Attorney General Eric Holder claims such threats keep him "up at night." Yet Holder refuses to say the U.S. is at war with radical Islam. And through his insomnia, he has gone out of his way to make it harder, not easier, for law enforcement to stop radical Islamists, including:
Meanwhile, Holder's boss has had an open-door policy to such radical Islamists at the White House.
- Restricting the FBI's surveillance and infiltration of mosques to ferret out jihadists before they can strike.
- Censoring language such as "radical Islam" and other Islamic references in thousands of pages of counterterrorism training materials used by the FBI.
- Firing many of the trainers who wrote or used the materials to teach agents to ID jihadists.
- Purging from the no-fly list the names of hundreds of high-risk Islamists tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.
- Scuttling ongoing FBI and U.S. attorneys' investigations of Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas front groups in the U.S., including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Society of North America — even though these groups have a long and well-documented track record of supporting terrorism and employing terrorists.
Do leftists and multiculturalist naifs think Western ways are on a par with Islamic ones? Would life after a Muslim takeover of the West be something easy to accept?
Even accepting that the Saudis have a right to punish what they want inside the borders of their non-Western country, consider this sentence meted out to a blogger in Saudi Arabia:
His first 50 lashes were administered Friday. After the noon prayers, outside the mosque, Saudi writer and blogger Raif Badawi, 30, received a sentence perhaps worse than death. Accused of "insulting Islam," he is to receive 1000 lashes: 50 per week for 20 weeks -- nearly half a year. "The lashing order says Raif should 'be lashed very severely,'" a twitter notice read. "If they lash him again next week we do not know if he is going to survive. He has no medical assistance," another notice said.No probation. No moderate fine. No one week in jail.
Straight to 1,000 lashes, mind you, and, unmentioned in the passage above, ten years in prison, and a fine of over a quarter of a million dollars.
When that American guttersnipe was going to be caned by the government of Singapore for keying some cars several years back, a lot of Americans were horrified that he was to receive six strokes. Six and done. Well, you know the Colonel well enough by now to know he was calling the Singaporean embassy in Washington to cheer them on.
But compare and contrast. A massively disproportion, crushing sentence in Saudi Arabia versus a highly circumscribed but educational sentence in Singapore.
Behind all the Islamic bullshit this is what is threatening the West – and what we are failing to understand and expel from our lands. I'll skip the lecture about the development of the criminal law in England over the centuries. All that need be said is that when we are dealing with Muslims we are dealing with savagery. Can all the hanky wringing over being judgmental and bigoted. Sooner or later, like Dr. Strangelove's errant hand, the essence of Islam will lunge for our throat.

In a sermon excerpt posted on the Internet on January 10, 2015, Tunisian cleric Bechir Ben Hassen declared that anyone cursing the Prophet Muhammad should be punished by death. Sheikh Ben Hassen recently posted online a video message recorded opposite the International Criminal Court in the Hague, in which he praised European democracy, tolerance, and freedom of speech.~ MEMRI.

Do religious leaders of other religions call for the execution of anyone? Are they such monumental hypocrites?
