Two words: President Trump
Islam called out big time here. We haven’t figured out a way of embedding the video so one will just have to go to the site.
We got it via email. Notice that it is not on Facebook or Youtube.
Whoever this guy is he certainly has a way with words. We stand in awe of how he uses them to take down Islam and the response to it by progressive types and other Western fashion.

Islam Called Out
NotInMyName. It is a positive sign. Some Muslims have taken to social media to declare that they are Muslims and that they condemn the recent terror attacks especially in Paris.
The hashtags being used are #NotInMyName and #IAmAMuslim.

NotInMyName — Muslims Against Terrorism
Vive la France! France stays unbowed. Here is the crowd as they are being evacuated from Stade de France during yesterday’s terror attack.
Vive la France
Anyone who thinks the following isn’t “alarming” should have his clock cleaned:
• Fourteen year-old student brings homemade “clock” to school.
• Device has a timer, protruding wires and electronic circuitry.
• Device makes beeping sound in student’s suitcase during class.
• Teacher, uncertain what it is, contacts school officials, who notify police.
• Student, who happens to be Muslim, is questioned and arrested.
• Forces of political correctness circle the wagons, blindly defending student; viciously attacking school officials and police as racist; demanding the student be given an apology; and screaming that he should file lawsuits for his “ordeal.”
• The nation’s “elite,” from President Obama to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, fawn over student and throw compliments his way like he was God’s gift to America.
This situation epitomizes modern-day America: A small but very vocal minority shouts “racist” every time they feel “offended,” encompassing everything from comedians’ jokes to law enforcement profiling to criminals being “disenfranchised” when police use force apprehending them.
The biggest casualty is America’s security, because every time we don’t push back, the PC bullies have free reign to eviscerate all who oppose them. And our enemies become emboldened, with the blueprint for “success” falling right into their laps.
Let’s look at the real story behind the firestorm engulfing the McArthur High School in Irving, Texas:
1. The big controversy is whether the student, Ahmed Mohamed, was “profiled” because he was Muslim. In other words, was he detained and arrested because of his skin color and religion? How that is controversial in the first place is mindboggling. Two answers:
• Anyone possessing such a device should have been dealt with in exactly the same way.
• But if he was profiled, you can still make the argument that it was justified.
Are there terrorists other than Muslims? Of course, including red-blooded boy-next-door Americans, such as Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and numerous mass shooters.
Yet the sad but true reality of today’s world is that people meeting certain criteria require extra scrutiny. Islamic militants, including those who have discreetly assimilated into American society as part of “sleeper cells,” are, and should be, at the top of that list. For those labeling that “discriminatory,” a quick refresher – facts, not opinion – is in order: All 19 Sept. 11 hijackers were Muslim. As were the Fort Hood shooter, the Boston Bombers, the Fort Dix Six, and the Chattanooga military installation shooter. Ditto for the Times Square bomber, the shoe bomber, the underwear bomber, and the Garland, Texas, shooter.
It was Islamic terrorists who bombed the London tube, trains in Madrid, and shot up the Charlie Hebdo office in France. And let’s not forget the myriad death threats by Muslim fundamentalists to any editor who dared exercise freedom of speech by publishing Mohammed cartoons.
Without making America into a bigger police state, we must redouble our efforts to identify threats, and ultimately, thwart attacks. And while no ethnicity, nationality or religion should be “off the table” to profiling, it is irresponsible to deliberately look the other way in scrutinizing those who fit possible “red flag” profiles. We could certainly use more tact in certain profiling situations, but, unequivocally, we cannot afford to base security procedures, or lack thereof, on hurt feeings.
2. It was bad enough that President Obama stuck his nose where it didn’t belong, but to shoot from the hip without the facts makes the sin mortal. Inviting Ahmed to the White House – really, Mr. President? This incident rises to that occasion? – and telling him to bring the clock, while claiming Ahmed’s teachers “failed him,” are prime examples of why the president’s ratings continue to plummet. Big on gimmicks, small on substance.
And it’s not without irony that, while the president criticizes the school’s security protocols, the number of intruders who have literally walked into the White House has been unprecedented under his watch. Time to refocus your priorities, Mr. President.
3. Many are calling for apologies to Ahmed and his family. Well, here’s some free advice to the police and school district: Don’t do it. Not now, not ever. There’s no need.
And for what exactly should they be apologizing? Doing their jobs?
An unknown contraption – definitely not a stretch thinking it resembled an explosive device – is discovered in a school, the authorities are notified, and the police investigate. How is anything about that wrong?
Using the critics’ rationale, it must therefore also be wrong to report suspicious devices in malls and movie theatres. See one at an airport or bus terminal? No problem. Simply ignore it. After all, this is America, land of the free and home of the naïve.
4. Let’s talk about profiling. Colleges, businesses and the government profile to determine whom they want to target, admit, and hire. Israel actively profiles, and as a result, its El Al airline, despite being a high-value target, has been hijacked only once. And law enforcement, especially the FBI, uses profiling to catch serial killers and other dangerous criminals.
Was it wrong to have profiled Irish Catholic students carrying suspicious packages in Northern Ireland several decades ago? Of course not.
That certainly doesn’t mean Ahmed should have been treated as a terrorist suspect while being detained, and questions must be answered about reports, if true, that he was denied access to his parents and a lawyer during questioning. But those things have nothing to do with the fact that both school and law enforcement officials performed their jobs.
5. Ahmed was suspended because, in today’s climate, you simply cannot bring that kind of thing to school. Period. If he’s as smart as his defenders make him out to be, he should have known the response that would be generated.
6. If, as the critics state, the teachers and police overreacted, what should they have done? Nothing? Hoped for the best? Taken Ahmed at his word? As usual, the silence is deafening.
One has to wonder what their response will be if someone actually detonates a bomb at a school, with scores killed and maimed. Since suicidal radicals have shown no hesitation about using their children as sacrificial bomb carriers, nothing should be assumed or taken for granted that “it couldn’t happen here.”
The same Monday-morning quarterbacks ravaging the officials in Irving would undoubtedly complain that our children weren’t protected, and demand answers as to how the school administration was blind-sided, why it didn’t employ better security precautions, and why elements of profiling weren’t utilized. The hypocrisy of the PC crowd knows no bounds.
If Americans don’t stand up for common sense security policies, and reject politically correct measures that imperil the nation, sooner or later the clock will strike 12, and the once-great American fairy tale will turn into a nightmare.
Clock Shows PC Poison
Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Trudy Rubin, yesterday, Aug. 30, became one of the few old media types expressing outrage over the fate of American Kayla Mueller.
Ms. Rubin even went so far as to call President Obama’s policies concerning ISIS inept and contradictory.
That’s certainly not writing you see every day by the establishment.
Miss Mueller was a human rights activist captured in August 2013 in Syria by ISIS. She was chained in a room and raped repeatedly over the next several months by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi largely because she was an American.
She was killed on Feb. 6 this year. She was 26. ISIS claims it was a Jordanian air strike that caused her death but that is far from an established fact.
During her captivity, Miss Mueller refused a chance to escape as it would endanger the Yazidi girls who were imprisoned — and being abused — along with her and to whom she had become kind of a mother figure. She had smuggled out a letter say she would never give in to her captors.
Let us remember Kayla Mueller. Let us remember Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as well.
And for the record just about any other president except Barack Obama would not be confused about what to do. OK, Hillary Clinton, as she would be listening to Huma Abedin, would also be confused.
Remember Kayla Mueller
This Off The Internet is courtesy of Rick Lozinak. Is it true? While CIA Director Brennan and Ms. Jarrett are unlikely Muslims, the rest most certainly are. Note especially the troubling background of Huma Abedin.
Understand why Obama refuses to say the words “radical Islam.”
We now have a Muslim government .
John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia.
Obama ‘s top advisor, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where her parents still live.
Hillary Clinton’s top advisor, Huma Abedin is a Muslim, whose mother and brother are involved in the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for Homeland Security, Arif Aikhan, is a Muslim.
Homeland Security Advisor, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim.
Obama advisor and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, is a Muslim.
Obama ‘s Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America is a Muslim.
Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a Muslim.
1/13/15: Nancy Pelosi announced she will appoint Rep Andre Carson, D-Ind, as the first Muslim lawmaker on the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. It would make Carson the first Muslim to serve on the committee that receives intelligence on the threat of Islamic militants in the Middle East! He has he suggested that U.S. schools should be modeled after Islamic madrassas, where education is based on the Quran!!!
And last but not least, our closet Muslim himself, Barack Hussein Obama.
It’s questionable if Obama ever officially took the oath of office when he was sworn in. He didn’t repeat the oath properly to defend our nation and our Constitution. Later the Democrats claimed he was given the oath again in private?
CIA director John Brennan took his oath on a copy of the Constitution, not a Bible.
Congressman, Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the Qur’an
Congresswoman Michele Bachman was vilified and verbally tarred and feathered by Democrats when she voiced her concern about Muslims taking over our government.
Considering all these appointments, it would explain why Obama and his minions are systematically destroying our nation, supporting radical Muslim groups worldwide, opening our southern border, and turning a blind eye to the genocide being perpetrated on Christians all over Africa and the Middle East.
The more damage Obama does, the more arrogant he’s become!
Our nation and our government has been infiltrated by people who want to destroy us. It can only get worse!
If you fail to pass this one on, there’s something wrong … Somewhere!
In his book he said, “….if it comes down to it, I would go with the Muslims.”
Muslims In U.S. Government
Today’s (July 17) front page of The Philadelphia Inquirer ” screamed Tenn. Gunman Kills 4 Marines” regarding yesterday’s terror attack at a Marine recruiting center in Chattanooga.
The headline on its website initially read “Gunman grew up in conservative family.” It has since been changed to “conservative Muslim family.”
Well the attacker with the nice traditional Southern name of Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez was born in Kuwait and brought here as an infant. He grew up in a devout Muslim home and espoused radical Muslim views on his website.
Pointedly avoiding consideration that Abulazeez theology was a motive for the murders is a laughable rejection of reality. That it is actually done is why it has become almost pointless to use the old media.
To call Abdulazeez “conservative” is perverse in today’s world. Why do that? Because he believes in some god and follows a religious tradition? Would they call a Unitarian performing a gay marriage “conservative”?
Does Abdulazeez believe in the sanctity of life? No. Does he respect our military? No. Does he respect the rule of law? No. Does he agree with the First Amendment regarding religious dissenters? Sorta doubt it.
Does he accept that we are “Endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” Obviously not.
Those who answer yes to these things are to whom the label “conservative” applies in these modern times.
That the Inquirer would label Abdulazeez such shows that they are driven by anger towards their political opponents to such a degree that they resort to lies in headlines.
They must not be taken seriously.
Political correctness is poison to truth. It is something that must be fought.
Muslim Killer Called ‘Tenn. Gunman’
By Don Adams
ISIS has issued a fatwa against a dear friend of the Independence Hall Foundation, Pamela Geller.
Just writing these words seems so bizarre.
Ms. Geller keynoted our 2012 American Exceptionalism July 4th Celebration held at the Independence Visitor Center.
The event location had to be moved in doors, from the original location on Independence Mall, due to threats that had been made against Ms. Geller (even then) in relation to her appearance.
Occupy Philadelphia was hosting a national gathering on the Mall and some of their attendees had also threatened to interrupt our program.
In the end, over 300 friends packed the banquet hall to hear a terrific keynote address from Ms. Geller–the best speech ever delivered to our organization–with the exception, perhaps, of 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s Tax Day talk at the Franklin Institute.
The event went off without interruption–thanks, mostly, to the National Park Service security officers and the assistance of Internal Affairs Division of the Philadelphia Police.
ISIS Operatives Attempt to Carry Out a Texas Massacre
In Texas, earlier this, the situation was quite different–as Ms. Geller’s Muhammad Cartoon Contest ended with the killing of two
ISIS terrorists and the wounding of a security guard.
As quickly as the violence erupted in Texas, a national debate unfolded around the merits of the the contest and the supposed limits of free speech.
At the center of the storm–Ms. Geller–who was quickly labeled “hater” by the left–the same left that applauded “Christ in Urine” and a tasteless depiction of the Blessed Virgin that was praised as “art” by Catholic-bashers everywhere.
In all of our interactions with Ms. Geller, we have found her to be
principled, honest, hard working, dedicated, thoughtful, sincere, and caring. Of all the numerous conservative politicians, pundits, and operatives that we have hosted, she is one that we greatly admire.
While we wholeheartedly support Ms. Geller–and vouch for her tremendous character, we also firmly believe that with our rights, including free speech, come responsibilities.
Holding a single contest to prove several points–that free speech is preferable to the alternative, that a fatwa can be issued against American citizens, that ISIS is alive and well on the US mainland, and that Jihaddists will stop at nothing to destroy the West and all that it represents–may have been worth the price of the Texas shootings.
But conducting such contests over and over again, here and there, will prove nothing new–and will increasingly bring into question the motives of those holding the contests rather than the would be terrorist-murderers who seek to carry out fatwas and the extinction of western culture.
The following are two fascinating, yet contrary, opinion pieces written by conservative pundits – –Rich Lowry, for Politico, and Kathleen Parker, for the Washington Post.
For the record, we completely disagree with Ms. Parker’s view of Ms. Geller. Media hound Parker knows far too well of which she speaks–as most of what she says about Geller applies to herself, instead.
Update: Don has asked to add that another good thing concerning Ms. Geller’s contest was the way it exposed the hypocrisy of the left.
Mr. Adams is among the founders of the Independence Hall Foundation.
Pamela Geller Defending A Friend
The event was organized by the American Freedom Defense Initiative and held at the Curtis Caldwell Center in Garland, Texas. The Caldwell Center is where Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a “Stand with a Prophet” conference in January shortly after two Muslims murdered 11 at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in France.
Just as in Paris, two Muslims tried to commit a slaughter of innocents at the Texas event. Unlike in Paris, however, they were shot and killed by a security guard.
We cannot confirm rumors that raw bacon was shoved in the mouths of the cadavers.
