You don't need to look much further than the Quran for proof that Islam is a peaceful religion





Contrary to the images of hooded jihadists announcing the end of days, Islam does not promote limitless violence        

       
The so-called Jihadi groups, which consist of extremist Muslims of every faction: ranging from Salafis, Wahhabis, Al-Qaeda, Taliban, Isis and many more, consider themselves as advocates of True Islam. These terrorists claim that the Paris, London and New York attacks are supported and justified by the Quran.

Meanwhile, the majority of Muslims condemn those atrocities.
For those on the outside of the debate, this may seem like a confusing situation. Which side speaks the truth? Is Islam a dangerous religion?

Here are the reasons why the Quran doesn’t support the actions of terrorist groups both in the reasons for waging war and what it is appropriate to do when there is defensive justification for war.
To be frank, God does give conditional permission for Muslims to wage war; however there are strict guidelines for this which jihadists do not adhere to.
Here are some of the terms and conditions: first, Muslims cannot pre-emptively initiate a war. They are only allowed to act in defense. Muslims have permission from God to fight back only when they are expelled from their houses or lands. War can be waged if there is a situation where defenseless people are under attack and ask their Muslim allies for help. The last reason for a just war is when war breaks out between two groups of believers and one party does not intend to stop it in spite of a proposed truce.

Even for battles and fights, the Quran has set limitations and frameworks. If the enemy proposes peace, Muslims should immediately stop the war. Second, Muslims are not allowed to transgress the divine justice: “fight for the cause of God, those who fight you, but do not transgress, for God does not love the transgressors.” The idea of unrestricted, apocalyptic warfare as proposed by Isis is totally un-Islamic.  Third, Muslims have to treat prisoners of war with honour, not behead them, as seen recently in the bloody propaganda videos spread by the so called Islamic state. Prisoners should be released after the war, either in exchange for Muslims captives or only as a favour. Also Muslims do not have permission to keep prisoners of war, enslave them, or use them as future soldiers. Finally, followers of Islam are not allowed to force their religious beliefs upon their enemies. 




BREAKING: Prince Charles Makes Devastating Statement About Islam… Muslims Are Outraged


While the President of the United States is seemingly taking the side of radical Islamists, and working to weaken and destroy the fundamental principles that Western civilization and society are built upon, other leaders are stepping up to lead the fight against the destructive and murderous ideology.

The United Kingdom’s Prince Charles is in the middle of a week-long tour of the Middle East, where it is expected that he will deliver a strong message to Muslim leaders regarding the prevalence and growth of the radical Islamist mindset.

According to Mad World News, the Crown Prince intends to demand that Muslim leaders in the U.K, and around the world, stop radicalizing young people, and to show some respect for Western culture and values.
He is also telling them that any Muslims who come to the U.K. need to abide by the English standards that are already in place, and stop trying to force their way of life on the people who were there before them.

“The radicalization of people in Britain is a great worry,” the prince told the BBC. “The extent to which this is happening is alarming, particularly in a country like our’s where we hold values dear.”
The prince is further troubled by how rampant the radical ideology is on the Internet, and how easy it is for young people to be radicalized online.

Such a strong stance against radical Islam and in defense of Christianity has elevated the prince to the historic title of “defender of the faith.”

The prince has lived up to the title by calling out Islam for the persecution of Christians and other minority religions in the Middle East, by unequivocally stating that Christians were in the region first, hundreds of years before the arrival of Islam.

He has strongly denounced the atrocious actions of the Islamic State, and how they have slaughtered and exiled hundreds of thousands of Christians and Yazidis from northern Iraq.  He says that if this continues there may soon come a day when there are no more Christians in the Middle East.
“The tragedy is even greater because Christians have been in the Middle East for 2,000 years, before Islam came in the 8th Century,” Charles stated.
The prince’s tour begins with a meeting with King Abdullah II in Jordan, before also traveling to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates, where he will also hopefully address the funding for radical Islamic terrorism that originate in those countries.

We commend Prince Charles for standing up in defense of the Christian faith, particularly in the Middle East, and will pray for his safe and successful return from the region.

Please share this on Facebook and Twitter if you are glad to see other world leaders standing up to radical Islam, since our “leader” obviously won’t do it.


MEDIA BLACKOUT: Another 41 Muslim “Refugees” in U.S. Arrested on JIHAD TERROR CHARGES


from Pam Geller: Further proof of what my colleagues and I have
warned of for months.
There have already been jihadis discovered among the refugees. There will be many more. Why are the Democrats importing our assassins? How many Americans have to die for this country to turn their back on the party of treason?

The Lebanese education minister said there are 20000 active jihadists among the refugees in his country. The Islamic state said last February that they would be sending 400000 refugees into Europe.

Islamic state has called for the killing of civilians in the US and Europe. Why are we allowing them to come when Christians are dying in the hundreds of thousands?
Disclosure: Another 41 Foreign-Born Individuals Snagged On Terror Charges
Obama administration withholds details as more attacks occur
BY: Adam Kredo, WFB, January 8, 2016Following the discovery of a terrorist cell in Texas allegedly operated by an Iraqi who entered the United States as a refugee, the Washington Free Beacon has learned of an additional 41 individuals who have been implicated in terrorist plots in the United States since 2014, bringing the total number of terrorists discovered since that time to 113, according to information provided by Congressional sources.Since August, however, the Obama administration has stonewalled Congressional efforts to obtain more detailed immigration histories of these individuals, prompting frustration on Capitol Hill and accusation that the administration is covering up these histories to avoid exposing flaws in the U.S. screening process.The disclosure of these additional 41 individuals linked to terror operations—many already identified as immigrants, others’ immigration histories shrouded in secrecy—has stoked further concerns about flaws in the U.S. screening process and is likely to prompt further congressional inquiry into Obama administration efforts to withhold details about these suspects, sources said.As the number of legal immigrants connected to terrorism continues to grow, the Obama administration has sought to quash congressional inquiries and rally its allies behind an effort to fund efforts to boost the number of immigrants and refugees from the Middle East.
Many of these immigrants have been caught by authorities planning terrorist attacks on American soil, while others were found to be involved in efforts to provide funding and material to ISIS, according to an internal list of migrant terrorists codified by congressional sources and viewed by the Free Beacon.
“A growing number of foreign-born terrorists are being identified operating within the United States, and yet the Administration will not provide any information about their immigrant histories,” said one senior congressional source apprised of the issue. “And one can only imagine that for every identified terrorist, there are many more individuals around them who are radicalized, extreme or otherwise detracting from American society in ways beyond the threat of terrorism alone.”
As congressional calls for increased screening methods go mostly ignored, local authorities are dealing with an uptick in terror-related crimes committed by legal immigrants. 
On Thursday, the Justice Department accused two Iraqi refugees legally in the U.S. of conspiring to provide support to ISIS.
Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, a 24-year-old Palestinian born Iraqi refugee who had been living in Texas, was charged with aiding ISIS. The man had been granted legal permanent residence in Houston in 2011, though it was later determined that he “swore untruthfully on his formal application when applying to become a naturalized U.S. citizen,” according to the Justice Department. 
Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, also a Palestinian born Iraqi, allegedly “traveled overseas to fight alongside terrorist organizations and lied to U.S. authorities about his activities,” according to the Justice Department
Al-Jayab entered the U.S. as a refugee in 2012 and late 
r travelled back to Syria, where it is believed that he resumed “fighting with various terrorist organizations,” according to the charges.
Late Thursday, a Philadelphia police officer was reportedly ambushed by an assailant sporting “Muslim garb and wearing a mask,” according to local reports.
Additional information viewed by the Free Beacon outlines another 20 previously unknown individuals brought up on similar terrorism-related charges in 2015 alone. 
Those who have been charged were legally residing in the U.S. after entering from countries such as Egypt, Uzbekistan, Albania, Pakistan, and Syria, according to information provided by Congressional sources. 
“The terrorism-related arrests of two more Iraqi refugees on American soil proves once again our screening process is weak and needs to be updated,” Sen. Mark Kirk (R., Ill,) said in a statement Friday. 
With incidents and indictments of this nature continuing to rise, critics of the Obama administration’s immigration policy are expressing concern about a last-minute funding effort in 2015 to fully fund refugee resettlement and visa programs.
These priorities, which were granted full funding as part of a yearly spending bill approved by Congress last year, will permit around 170,000 new migrants from Muslim-majority countries to enter the United States in 2016, according to the Senate’s immigration subcommittee. 
“The omnibus gave the green light for the administration to continue this failed immigration policy over the objections of the electorate,” the senior Congressional source quoted above said. 
The Senate continues to uncover dozens of cases in which individuals accused of terrorism entered the country legally. 
“Preventing and responding to these acts is an effort encompassing thousands of federal agents and attorneys and billions of dollars: In effect, we are voluntarily admitting individuals at risk for terrorism and then, on the back end, trying to stop them from carrying out their violent designs,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) warned last year as Congress considered the spending bill.

BAD NEWS FOR CRUZ IN S. CAROLINA: Vets furious at Senator’s new V.A. Plan -must read for vets



As Ted Cruz swings into Veteran Territory: South Carolina, he faces scrutiny over his plans for veterans, and it is leaving many Veterans angry and shivering in rage.


This comes after his rude comments about Veterans that caused him to issue an apology:
Wrapping up his 21-hour fake filibuster calling for the defunding of Obamacare, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) jokingly thanked his staff “who have endured this Bataan death march” last week. The lighthearted comparison outraged veterans of the actual 1942 death march, who confronted Cruz in his office on Monday.


The American Coalition for Filipino Veterans issued a letter demanding an apology for Cruz’s “ill-advised, and insulting televised statement.”


During the Bataan Death March, Japanese troops killed more than 10,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war during a five-day 65-mile march to a Japanese prison camp. Beatings and random executions were common, and hundreds died from heat, exhaustion, or starvation along the way. Once the survivors arrived at the camp, about 400 prisoners died every day from starvation or disease.


“There is no logical reason to compare the brutal imprisonment, suffering, tortures and executions faced by the heroic Fil-Am POWs/Death March WWII survivors with the victims of your grandstanding,” the group wrote.


On Monday, Cruz met with 96-year-old ACFV spokesman Mr. Celestino Almeda and 93-year-old Major Jesse Baltazar, a Bataan defender and prisoner of war. The senator apologized, explaining that his intentions were good:
CRUZ: I apologize for causing offense. I should not have said what I did. I’ll share with you the context of the comment I made because I was not attempting to compare my filibuster to that suffering. It was at the end of what had been nearly 22 hours and I was thanking the floor staff. There are a number of staff on the Senate floor who had to be there the whole night and they didn’t have a choice on it. So I actually put together a list of everyone on the floor staff and all of the police officers and all of the pages and everyone who was forced to stay there all night. And it was in the context of thanking them for enduring. And that’s when I used the analogy. I was trying to say that they had endured a long period of suffering not of their choosing. But I understand that that comment caused offense and I apologize, that was not my intention to do so. In fact my intention was to thank them for their service.
 
Top Republicans’ growing support for privatization of the Department of Veterans Affairs health care system is frightening some veterans groups.


These veterans advocates acknowledge the urgency of reform at the notoriously backlogged and scandal-ridden VA. But they do not believe private insurance or medical care is capable of accommodating veterans’ specific needs, and maintain that a voucher program for purchasing care outside the VA system will inevitably fall short of veterans’ expenses.


In September, the American Legion, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, the Paralyzed Veterans of America and five other leading national veterans service organizations wrote an open letter to GOP presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson,condemning his proposal to replace the VA with personal health savings accounts.


“To suggest that disabled veterans could be sent out into the private economy with a health savings account card overlooks the fact that civilian health care providers have waiting lists of their own, that private practices often limit the number of government plan patients they accept due to low reimbursement rates, and presupposes that civilian doctors have the necessary skill sets and training to meet the unique health needs of military veterans,” the groups wrote.


New poll results may give these organizations additional political leverage. Nearly two-thirds of veterans oppose “privatizing VA hospitals and services,” according to a poll released Tuesday by the Vet Voice Foundation. And some 80 percent of the veterans surveyed believe veterans “deserve their health care to be fully paid for, not vouchers which may not cover all the costs.”


A plurality of veterans, or 42 percent of those surveyed, agreed with the statement that the VA “needs more doctors,” according to the poll, indicating they believe the VA’s problems are at least partly due to a personnel shortage.
VET VOICE FOUNDATION

Although Vet Voice is a progressive organization, the poll of 800 veterans was jointly conducted by a Democratic polling firm and a Republican one.


“This poll confirms what nearly every veterans service organization has always said — privatization and voucherization of the VA is a non-starter for veterans,” retired Major General Paul D. Eaton, managing director of the Vet Voice Foundation, said in a statement.  “There is a lot of debate about ‘choice’ in veterans care, but when presented with the details of what ‘choice’ means, veterans reject it.”


Vet Voice claims the poll is the first to ask veterans directly about “privatizing” the VA.
While Carson’s proposal to effectively disband the VA health system is the most radical of the GOP presidential contenders’ plans, other candidates are not far behind.


Donald Trump has laid out a plan that would have VA medical facilities compete with non-VA care providers. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has close ties to Concerned Veterans for America, a conservative, Koch Brothers-backed group that promotes privatizing the VA.


But perhaps the greatest threat to the traditional VA system remains the VA itself. In July 2014, Congress responded to rising public outcry about wait times for care at VA hospitals, as well as documented cases of deceit and retaliation against whistleblowers by VA officials, by passing bipartisan legislation to reform the agency and provide additional funding.

Muslim Migrants Thought They Could Rape European Women… Then the “Soldiers of Odin” Show Up (VIDEO)


State Rep Starts Carrying Gun After These Shocking Encounters With Hillary’s Goons

Conservative Tribune

Republican New Hampshire state Rep. Katherine Prudhomme-O’Brien recently entered the public spotlight again after attempting to question Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton about her husband’s past at one of her rallies last month.


At the debate, Prudhomme-O’Brien demanded to know why Clinton helped cover up Juanita Broaddrick’s claim that former President Bill Clinton had raped her.
Now it looks as though those questions are going to haunt her in a way they’ve haunted her in the past — but the Second Amendment supporter she’d be ready for anything that could happen by carrying a gun for protection.


In an interveiw with Breitbart, Prudhomme-O’Brien said, “I’m just going to make wise choices and take the advice of the state police and local police. That’s how I operate. I’m also quite a proponent of the Second Amendment,” she said.

“Anybody who looks at any women going down the street — the woman may or not be packing heat and act accordingly,” she added. “That’s what I like about this state.”

Prudhomme-O’Brien is no stranger to what Clinton’s goons are capable of. She claimed she had endured two decades of threats and was even audited after her initial protests of Clinton enabling her husband’s predilection for sexual assault.
Watch Clinton ignore Prudhomme-O’Brien at a rally in January:



Prudhomme-O’Brien said she thought her questions were helping raise awareness of Bill Clinton’s past among female voters who are simply too young to remember them.
It’s shameful that this woman feels she must carry a gun to protect herself from Clinton’s thugs but that simply indicates what happens when you mess with the Clintons.


Unfortunately, there are plenty of others who have suffered for exactly the same fate as Prudhomme-O’Brien.

Congresswoman Stands Up For Sharia Law And Actually Gets This Disgusting ResponsePosted

by /

Sharia Law, the most restrictive and destructive laws in modern history, have some unusual supporters in America. The US Herald reported on the first lady's ritzy jewelry, that cost over $70,000, which came from the Sharia law loving Queen of the country of Brunei. However, lefty loony Maxine Waters has chosen to take it a step further.

According to Rep. Waters, in 2012, House Republicans were attacking the Islam as a security threat to the U.S. Of course, anyone that has not lived under a rock or rather anyone alive, has extremism, terrorism, and violence from only one religion since 2001. To be historically accurate, potentially, since the 1990s.

Regardless, Rep. Waters made a speech during this time in which she made a case for Sharia law, Breitbart News reported. As disturbed as that may sound, that is what happened. Though, the speech is roughly eight minutes long, one juicy morsel was prepared by Freedom Outpost.


"Over the last year, and due to the focus of House Republicans on so-called 'Muslim radicalization,' we have seen politicians and pundits attacking the Islamic faith as a security threat to the United States. Across the country, these people are exploiting fear and trying to convince state legislatures that the state adoption of Sharia tenants is the strategy extremists are using to transform the United States into an Islamic country."
For those of you unfamiliar with what is covered under this wonderful "tenet" that states should be allowed to adopt, according to Waters, and the thing that mean Republicans have sought to criminalize in America. Besides, not allowing Muslims to eat pork or drink alcohol, puts harsh charges against you for leaving the faith, and Pre-marital sex, it also allows them to cut your hands off for using a banned cell phone.

Perhaps, before lobbing sharp rhetoric at her political opponents, she might want to read up on what she is defending. Granted, it was apparently before an Islamic Society of Orange County meeting in her state.

So, Sharia law for votes, is the Maxine Waters way? Well, she is known for saying some 'darndest' things, so this should not surprise anyone.

'Man-made disaster': Critics say California drought caused by misguided environment policies

The blistering drought that has Californians timing their showers, driving dirty cars and staring at brown lawns and empty swimming pools is a “man-made disaster,” according to critics, who say the Golden State’s misguided environmental policies allow much-needed freshwater to flow straight into the Pacific.

In an average year, California gets enough snow and rain to put 200 million acres under a foot of water, but environmental opposition to dams over the last several decades has allowed the majority of the freshwater to flow into the ocean, even as the state’s population exploded to nearly 40 million people. The current drought has left farms parched and residents under strict water consumption orders, but some say it didn't have to be that way.
“This is a manmade disaster,” said Bonner Cohen, senior fellow with the National Center for Public Policy Research
- Bonner Cohen, National Center for Public Policy Research
“This is a man-made disaster,” said Bonner Cohen, senior fellow with the National Center for Public Policy Research. “Southern California is an arid part of the world where droughts -- even severe droughts -- are commonplace, and knowing this, you’d think the government of California would have included this mathematical certainty in its disaster preparedness planning, but the government has done nothing, not even store rain, as the population has continued to grow.”

Gov. Jerry Brown last week mandated the state’s residents cut water usage by as much as 35 percent, saying, "As Californians, we have to pull together and save water in every way we can.” Consumers face stiff penalties, forced installation of water restriction devices and even water service suspension if they don’t comply with county mandates. Commercial users face even tougher sanctions, with one county requiring them to cut usage by 80 percent.

The critics say California gets  plenty of water to meet its needs, if it were only managed properly. More than half of California’s surface water flows from the Sierra Nevada mountains in the east down to the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta in Northern California. Much of the mountain runoff is managed by two of the world’s largest water storage and transport systems – the federal Central Valley Project and California's State Water Project. Each is a system of dams, reservoirs and distribution systems designed to send water to cities, towns and farms throughout the state.

But the vast majority of the state’s 1,400 dams and reservoirs, in the two massive systems and smaller ones that supply southern California, were built well before the 1980s.

Environmentalists have since stopped the construction of water storage and delivery systems through legal and political actions. They have also fought to ensure that captured water is released into streams and the ocean -- rather than the water delivery system -- in order to boost fish populations and dilute the salinity of the delta.

“Droughts are nothing new in California, but right now, 70 percent of California's rainfall washes out to sea because liberals have prevented the construction of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades, during a period in which California’s population has doubled,” said Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett Packard and likely GOP presidential candidate. “This is the classic case of liberals being willing to sacrifice other people's lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology.”

Releasing the water is supposed to save the endangered fish population, including the Delta Smelt, Longfin Smelt, four runs of Chinook Salmon, the Steelhead, Green and White Sturgeon, Splittail and the Sacramento hitch, but so far the fish population has decreased, according to experts. A state survey in March found just 6 Delta Smelt – four females and two males – prompting wildlife experts to estimate the species' population has dropped to 5,000 or fewer from the millions in the last 40 years.

"Prepare for the extinction of the Delta Smelt in the wild,” UC Davis fish biologist Peter Moyle said. “The population today may be too low to sustain itself,” Moyle said. “Fish ready to spawn have to find one another in a big area. If spawning is successful, there have to be enough eggs and larvae that some individuals survive to become the next generation of spawners.”
Jim Burling of the Pacific Legal Foundation said while water diversions have not helped endangered fish populations, the policies are devastating to people, produce and the economy.
“The plan is not doing anything for the fish and causing a lot of pain for farmers and farm workers,” Burling said. “The impact of these policies on people should be considered.”
The state has more than 80,000 farms and ranches, which generate more than $44 billion in annual sales. California produces more than 250 different crops, leads the U.S. in production of 75 commodities, and, according to the Water Education Foundation, is the only state to produce 12 key crops such as almonds, artichokes, dates, figs, raisins, kiwi, olives, persimmons, pistachios, prunes and walnuts.

During the current drought, which began in 2012, and by some estimates could be the most severe in recorded history, billions of gallons of water have been diverted from farmlands, according to a report by the Washington D.C.-based Heritage Foundation, with the American Farm Bureau estimating that between 400,000 acres and 500,000 acres of crops will be lost.
Fiorina said it’s a “tragedy” that the agricultural land in California, the most productive in the world, has been destroyed, along with farming jobs because of politics, policy, and liberal environmentalists.
Rep. Devin Nunes, a Republican who represents a Central Valley district in Congress, said roughly 21 million-acre feet of water is flushed into the ocean annually. One acre-foot equals 325,851 gallons, the average annual water usage for a suburban family household. He also blames environmental groups for the fact that the state is dry.

“The environmental groups did not expect to run everyone out of water, but they got greedy, shut down the whole system, and ran the whole damned state dry,” Nunes said.

The environmental movement went to court to stop most new dam construction, according to Victor Davis Hanson, a Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in Classics and Military History at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, including the Sites Reservoir; the Los Banos Grandes facility; and the Temperance Flat Reservoir.

The Klamath River diversion project also was canceled in the 1970s, putting an end to the Aw Paw reservoir, potentially the state’s largest man-made reservoir with 15 million acre-feet of water, or enough to supply San Francisco for 30 years, Davis said.

“California’s water-storage capacity would be nearly double what it is today had these plans come to fruition,” Davis said in a report.

Environmentalists also diverted irrigation and municipal water from reservoirs and moved to freeze California’s water-storage resources at 1970s capacities, Davis said.

Nunes introduced the Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act of 2012 and co-sponsored the Sacramento-San Joaquin Emergency Water Delivery Act of 2014 to “restore water deliveries cut off by environmental lawsuits and federal regulation; streamline environmental regulatory processes to speed up 5,000,000 water reliability projects and transfers; expand the use of the Central Valley Project to allow water deliveries by non-federal sources; and end the effort to protect non-native species and instead focus on native species.”

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the legislation in 2013 and 2014, but U.S. Senators Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein, both Democrats from California, refused to sign on to the GOP plan, and Brown, in charge of California from 1975 to 1983 and then again since 2011, also expressed opposition, Nunes said. As the crisis in California grows, Nunes hopes to get the legislation through the Senate and to President Obama for his signature.
“If we had stored water and built three new dams, the state would be flush with water,” Nunes said.

As millions of gallons of freshwater rush out to sea, some counties are looking for ways to bring desalinization plants online, and are spending millions of dollars to do so, but environmentalists are already speaking out against the plan, saying desalinization is energy-intensive and can negatively impact sea life.

Preparing for future droughts and making it through this one all comes down to math and engineering, Cohen said. “We know the systems we have to build to make sure the state has plenty of water, but instead we have wasted millions of acre feet of water in the last 10 years,” Cohen said. “The thought that you can conserve your way out of this is not going to lead to any success.”

                                




BREAKING: Defense Secretary Slips Up, Reveals Obama Admin LED IRAN Straight to Our Sailors

By: Wilmot Proviso on January 14, 2016

It doesn’t matter if “the 3 a.m. phone call” comes in the middle of the day. Not only will the Obama administration not answer it, but they’ll aid our enemies instead.

First came the fact that President Barack Obama refused to address the arrest of 10 of our sailors by the Iranian military after their boats had mechanical trouble at sea. Then came news that the Obama administration had offered the Iranians an apology for the release of the sailors.

Now comes the disturbing revelation, apparently delivered by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, that the Obama administration tipped off the Iranians that our soldiers were lost at sea and requested their aid.
The news came from Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, during an interview on TheBlaze’s Dana Loesch shortly after Iran’s arrest of the sailors had come to light.

“I understand that (Secretary of State) John Kerry has indicated, look, when he got word, he and Ash Carter called the Iranians to help take care of our Navy guys, because they had some mechanical problems,” Gohmert said.
I’ll give you a second to pick your jaw off the floor.

“When our Navy ships have problems, we don’t call Iran. We call the rest of the Navy. We can call the Air Force, the Army, the Marines, Coast Guard. We don’t call Iran,” Gohmert said.



He also took a swipe at Kerry’s closeness with Iranian
 officials, noting how the former Democrat presidential nominee had the son of Iran’s foreign minister as the best man at his daughter’s wedding.
“But I guess, you know, if you have relatives that have weddings that involve the people that are in charge in Iran, well, maybe you feel that comfortable,” Gohmert said. “But you know, Dana, there are secrets on every military ship we have … that has no business being in the hands of the Iranians.”
But, hey — the Obama administration has given the Iranians everything else via the Iran deal, why not give them Navy secrets, as well?

This shows just how derelict the Obama administration was in its duty. Not only did they apologize to the Iranians, they actively delivered our sailors into the clutches of their military.

This rot starts at the top — and if Barack Obama can apologize to Iran, he can also apologize to the American people.




REPORTS: Chris Christie To Drop Out of Presidential Race

by | 10:56 am, February 10th, 2016                    


PicMonkey-Collage-Chris-Christie
Republican Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie will drop out of the presidential race, reports ABC News.

Despite a strategy that heavily focused money and resources on New Hampshire, Christie ended up in a disappointing sixth place Tuesday. Christie announced shortly after Tuesday’s loss that he was retreating to New Jersey and would be reevaluating his campaign.

Another major hurdle to Christie’s prospects was that he was very unlikely to make Saturday’s CBS debate. Polling at seventh place nationwide and sixth in the next primary state of South Carolina, Christie faced an uphill battle with no clear path to victory.

ABC News was first to report the coming suspension. But there is some confusion among other networks; Fox Business at first confirmed that report, but appeared to walk it back later on Twitter.

Muslim NHL Player Threatens to Slash Throat of Opposing Player! Video

by  •  •

(Picture taken from his NHL draft day.).

In the past I have stated that career choices of Muslims do not negate them from being part of the threat Islam is to us. Examples of this are when NBA legend Kareem Abdul Jabbar taking a stand for Islam and speaking out against “Islamophobia”. Another being Muslims who were doctors joining the violent jihad.

Tonight we see another example which proves me right, as NHL player and Muslim Nazem Kadri has threatened to slash the throat of an opposing player!


To make matters worse, this is not the first time the wannabe Mohammad has made such a threat. He issued the same threat several years ago to NHL Swiss player Nino Niederreiter.
In fact, the Leaf prospect said yesterday that not only did Switzerland forward Nino Niederreiter not make any derogatory reference to his ethnicity or Muslim religion, he regretted not shaking Niederreiter’s hand after Sunday’s game.
Where could this two-time loser have gotten the idea from?
Could it be this?
Koran 47:4 Altafsir
So when you encounter [in battle] those who disbelieve, then [attack them with] a striking of the necks (fa-darba’l-riqābi is a verbal noun in place of the [full] verbal construction, that is to say, fa’dribū riqābahum, ‘then strike their necks’), in other words, slay them — reference is made to the ‘striking of the necks’ because the predominant cause of being slayed is to be struck in the neck. Then, when you have made thoroughly decimated them, bind, spare them, take them captive and bind firmly, the bonds (al-wathāq is what is used to bind [yūthaqu] a captive). Thereafter either [set them free] by grace (mannan is a verbal noun in place of the [full] verbal construction), that is to say, either show them grace by setting them free unconditionally; or by ransom, ransoming them with payment or with Muslim captives, until the war, that is to say, its participants, lay down its burdens, its heavy loads of weaponry and other things, so that either the disbelievers surrender or enter into a treaty. This [last clause] constitutes the ‘purpose’ of [enjoining the Muslims to] slaying and taking captive. So [shall it be] (dhālika is the predicate of an implied subject, [such as] al-amr, ‘the ordinance’, in other words, ‘the ordinance [of God] regarding them is as mentioned’). And had God willed, He could have [Himself] taken vengeance on them, without any fighting, but, He has commanded you to [do] it, that He may test some of you by means of others, from among them, by way of battle, so that the slain among you will end up in Paradise, while those [slain] among them [will end up] in the Fire. And those who are slain (qutilū: a variant reading has qātalū, ‘those who fight’) — this verse was revealed on the day of [the battle of] Uhud, after the dead and the wounded had become numerous among the Muslims — in the way of God, He will not let their works go to waste, He will [not] render [them] void.
Or maybe this?
Tafsir Ibn Kathir – The Campaign Against Banu Qurayzah
Then the Messenger of Allah commanded that ditches should be dug, so they were dug in the earth, and they were brought tied by their shoulders, and were beheaded. There were between seven hundred and eight hundred of them. The children who had not yet reached adolescence and the women were taken prisoner, and their wealth was seized.
As for the hit, Kadri got his clocked cleaned by a clean hit. But obviously it “offended” his “Muslim sensitivities”.
As for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the NHL, they have a potential Islamic terrorist on their hands. Their move….

When It Comes to Sanders, The Truth Berns

| February 9, 2016


Bernie and Barry

A meme about Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders caught my eye. It said: “Never Owned a Business, Never Invented Anything, Never had a 9-5 job, Never proposed a single bill that passed (25 years), Lived off welfare before he was elected to office, 74 years old – net worth is $300,000, Says he can fix health care and the economy, Wants to be President?” Is this all true?
1. Never Owned a Business/He Never Invented Anything/Never had a 9-5 Job: Seems correct, but Bernie’s past is murky. As a Michael Kruse July 2015 article in “Politico” stated: “With Sanders, what you see is what you get…. But if his positions are well known, the person, it turns out, is less known.” Bernie graduated the University of Chicago in 1964, and from that time, until his first successful run for office in 1981 becoming the mayor of Burlington, Vermont, worked a number of odd jobs that included things like freelance writer and filmmaker, while making a number of unsuccessful runs for office as a member of Liberty Union Party. In fact according to the same Politico article, Bernie “didn’t collect his first steady paycheck until he was an elected official pushing 40 years old.” From the time he was mayor, Bernie has been a career politician.

2. Lived off welfare before he was elected to office/Bernie’s net worth today is $300,000:  Information on this welfare matter, like much about Bernie, is hard to find. There are various accounts from people who knew Bernie in his early days, saying he was “always poor” and alluded to him being on government assistance. While I can’t verify that he received welfare before becoming a career politician, it’s not a stretch to think that such might have been the case. His net worth has been reported at approximately $300,000 today which is on the lower end compared to other legislators. That can be a good or bad thing, depending on how you look at it.

3. Never proposed a single bill that passed (25 years): This is incorrect but not far from the truth. Bernie’s legislative record is pretty poor. According to an October 2015 Washington Times article by S.A. Miller and Stephen Dinan, “During his quarter-century in Congress, Mr. Sanders has been the chief sponsor of just three bills that were signed into law: two renaming U.S. Postal Service offices in his home state of Vermont and one that increased the annual cost-of-living raise for veterans’ benefits. …All told, Mr. Sanders introduced 353 bills during 16 years in the House and nine years in the Senate, giving him a success rate of just less than 1 percent.”

So the meme is mostly true if slightly off the mark. Add it all up and ask yourself: At such a crucial time in America’s history, is this the resume of the leader we want? And does it add up to the image that Bernie is selling to the public?

Since I don’t have to fit this essay onto a meme, here is some more info on Bernie.
Bernie is not really a Democrat: While he caucused with the Dems, he was a “Liberty Union” party member (i.e., a socialist) the first decade of his career, then an Independent. Only now running for President is he a Democrat.

Bernie is backed mainly by Unions: Bernie has touted how he doesn’t have a SuperPac, how he’s being funded by all these small individual donations and how’s he’s not beholden to special interests. Really? Bernie and his followers would have you believe that it’s just your hard working average Joe donating to his campaign out of his wallet. It only takes a quick look at Bernie’s record of donors to see that is not the case. Let me highlight some of his Top 20 Donors in recent years according to the website opensecrets.org : Service Employees International Union (SEUI), Teamsters, Communications Workers of America, Operating Engineers Union, and American Postal Workers Union. In fact, according to the website publicintegrity.org, Sanders’ Top 5 donors in 2009 were all unions, and in 2010 according to Open Secrets, 15 of the top 20 were unions. No matter what you think about unions, whether they are positive or not, it’s hard to argue that they themselves are not a “special interest”, lobbying issues and helping get candidates elected and their agenda accomplished. They hold power over the heads of those they help get elected, just like any private business or industry. So tell me again how Bernie is not beholden to “special interests?”

Bernie opposes military force: Being President means you are “Commander in Chief” of our nation’s military. Bernie applied for “conscientious objector” status during the Vietnam War because he is a pacifist. Let that sink in for a minute. A possible Commander-in-Chief of the United States military finds war unjustifiable. His application was eventually denied but by that time Bernie was too old to serve. Given the increasingly unstable state of the world, how would this person be able to make the tough choices necessary as President, which sometimes requires authorizing the use of force?

And yes, Bernie is a socialist: Bernie does not hide is his socialist beliefs. Some try to play down Bernie’s socialist beliefs, equating his beliefs to an admiration of the kind of social policies found in countries like Sweden or Norway. But when you look a little deeper into who Bernie is and what he believes, you will see a different picture. Bernie is such a good socialist that he went on a trip with his wife right after they were married to of all places – Moscow – and that was when it was still the communist USSR. He’s also taken questionable trips through the decades of his career to socialist countries, Cuba being one, and has praised many aspects of these countries and their governments. People don’t realize that socialism doesn’t mean that everyone is equally rich and equally free, it means you are equally poor and equally controlled.
Is this the Bernie Sanders many Democrats are flocking to? Unfortunately the answer is yes.
