This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Pat Condell Condemns Cordoba House

Bare Naked Islam posted this excellent video in which Pat Condell, the British atheist curmudgeon, expresses his outrage at Islamic arrogance and American political cowardice.


Pat Condell's rapid fire delivery does not allow much time to let critical concepts sink in, so I have transcribed his remarks. This probably is not word for word perfect, but it is close enough for our purposes.

All you Americans. whov'e been following the Islamization of Europe from afar with horrified incredulity if any of you are still nursing the cozy illusion that it could never happen in your country, its time to wake up and rub those sleepy eyes because the moment of truth has arrived. In case you haven't heard there's a plan afoot to build a thirteen story Islamic Center and Mosque a few yards from ground zero in New York. A plan that's been enthusiastically welcomed by politicians and civic leaders eager to show how tolerant they are at other people's expense. Is it possible to be astonished but not surprised ? Apparently its not enough that nearly three thousand innocent people had to lose their lives in a hideous act of religious mass murder but now their memory has to be insulted as well and the religion that murdered them allowed to build a. towering triumphalist Mosque on the ground where they died.

Is America losing its mind? It says a lot about the people behind this scheme that they have the bad taste even to propose building a Mosque in such a place, but to describe it as they have as a tribute to the victims is beyond bad taste and shows a profound contempt for those who died. It would be hard to imagine a more provocative gesture short of standing on their graves and burning the American flag.

Yet, how typical of Islam, with its own hair-trigger sensitivity to the slightest imagined insult to do something so arrogant and so insensitive.

Its gonna cost a hundred million dollars to build this thing, but nobody's prepared to say where the money is coming from. We do know that the Saudis fund a lot of Mosque building in the west when they are not busy trying to stamp out freedom of speech at the United Nations or telling Fox News what to broadcast so I guess we'll all be paying for it every time we start the car.

You know, it seems to me a much more appropriate place for a Mosque in New York would be the United Nations building itself, because that organization has become so Islamo-friendly in recent years that frankly I'm surprised it doesn't already have a minaret.

You know, I'm not even American but it makes me sick to my stomach to think that Islam is gonna be allowed anywhere near ground zero because 9/11 could never have happened if not for Islam and its teachings and its doctrine of jihad and its false promise of an impossible afterlife without which none of those gullible lunatics would have been persuaded to carry out such an insane act. And also because it wasn't just an attack on America but on all of us in the civilized world. As were the bombings in London, in Madrid, in Bali, the shootings in Mumbai and everywhere else the religion of peace decides it doesn't like the way people do things.

Any religion that endorses violence is incapable of delivering spiritual enlightenment. How obvious does that have to be? And it has no right even to call itself a religion Without the shield of religion to hide behind, Islam would be banned in the civilized world as a political ideology of hate and we have no obligation to make allowances for it anymore than we do for Nazism.

Its a bigger threat to our freedom than Nazism ever was. Yes, both are totalitarian and both divide the world unnecessarily into us and them, the pure and the impure and both make no secret of their desire to exterminate the Jews. But we were all more or less on the same side against the Nazis whereas the Islamonazis have got plenty of friends among people in the West who ought to know better.

American politicians now regularly make the kind of dhimmi noises about diversity as an excuse for Islamization, the same kind of thing that we've become so depressingly familiar with in Europe.

Its true that diversity has been good for America, its been the making of that country but American diversity has always been grounded in respect for the values- the individual liberties that make America what it is. Islam rejects those values and thats the difference and its a very important difference. Islam despises what America is, it rejects everything America stands for including freedom and diversity and any Muslim who denies that is a liar.

The organization behind this scheme is called the Cordoba Initiative and the building is to be called Cordoba House. And this is because Cordoba or Cordova is the city in southern Spain where Muslims built their first great Mosque at the start of and as a symbol of their conquest of Spain.

The ground zero Mosque is intended to serve the same purpose in America. Building Mosques on conquered sacred ground is standard practice, its what Islam has always done to assert its supremacy and that is whats happening here. And of course they know how insulting it is, how offensive it is; are you kidding? Why do you think they chose this site as close as possible to ground zero? Or do you think that that was just an accident? And they also know that once its built it will be there forever as a permanent affront to all Americans -- gloating in triumph and a major bridgehead in the ongoing stealth jihad. Thats how the Muslim world will see it and thats how they'll be encouraged to see it, and to be fair to them, thats exactly what it will be, confirming what they've always suspected: America is a soft country--a decadent country crippled by political correctness; confused and guilt ridden, with no backbone and no pride.

They plan to open it next year, on September the eleventh, the tenth anniversary of the atrocity. Is that tasteless enough for you? I'm surprised they haven't organized a 757 fly past.

But you know, it doesn't have to be this way. Here in London, we had a similar situation just recently when they wanted to build a gigantic Mosque to overshadow the Olympic games. Public opinion put a stop to that and public opinion can put a stop to this disgraceful plan as well and it can tell this group and the politicians who support them that enough is enough and that this is one insult too far and that America is a big country and there is plenty of room for them to build their offensive Mosque, if they have to, somewhere else, somewhere perhaps more appropriate to the spirit of their religion like the Arizona desert of Death Valley. Peace and God bless the Kuffar.

Evidently Pat suffers from cognitive dissonance, the victims of 9/11 were not murdered, they are victims of jihad. They were killed in a military attack upon civilians. The main religious component of the act is the religious obligation to carry out attacks on kuffar, which is classified as fard al-kifaya: binding upon all eligible male Muslims until a sufficient number have reported to the battlefront. The minor religious component is the pronunciation of takbir while slitting throats. "Allah-hu Akhbar" means "Allah is greater". Shouting it during an attack is one way of instilling terror into their victims.

Islam is not a religion, it is a way of life: intra-species predation. You will not likely come to a full realization of this until you read the Qur'an and hadith. I have documented the most important verses and sayings in another blog post: Islam's Mercenary Mission. Islam has a religious component, which is used to motivate the attackers and rationalize their depredations.

Pat mentioned another important issue: triumphalism. Islam convinces its acolytes that Allah has promised them victory, that they will conquer and dominate the entire world. Quranic verses contributing to triumphalism include: 2:137, 3:123, 3:125, 3:126, 3:127, 3:160, 5:52, 13:41, 14:15, 17:6, 40:51 and 61:9 . Ibn Kathir's Tafsir confirms the obvious; the titles alone should be sufficient to enlighten the observant reader.
In order to promote and perpetuate the wars that provided his income, Moe had Allah command the Muslims to conquer the entire world. The jihad imperatives are found in 8:39 and 9:29. To motivate Muslims to go to war, Moe promised them eternity in a celestial bordello and threatened them with eternal damnation if they refused.

One of Pat's statements stands out above the rest, I want to make sure that you understand it.

Any religion that endorses violence is incapable of delivering spiritual enlightenment. How obvious does that have to be? And it has no right even to call itself a religion Without the shield of religion to hide behind, Islam would be banned in the civilized world as a political ideology of hate and we have no obligation to make allowances for it anymore than we do for Nazism.

Islam does not just endorse violence, it ordains it. Killing and being killed fighting in Allah's cause is the basis of the relationship between Allah and his slaves. Our First Amendment forbids congress from making any law prohibiting the free exercise of religion. Misidentification as a religion shields Islam from prohibitive legislation. Jihad, genocide & terrorism are intrinsic sacraments of Islam, it can not be practiced without them. Islamic law requires a minimum of one ghazwat in every year. This is how Al-Shafi'i interpreted that law:

Why in Hell would a free nation allow that demonic ideology to gain a foothold on its soil?

Construction of Mosques and minarets is symbolic of Islamic Supremacism. Wherever Islam conquers, it tears down temples, supplanting them with Mosques as a symbol of supremacy. To make this issue more clear to you I will quote two provisions of Islamic law from Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 11.5, which lists seven restrictions on conquered Jews & Christians.

-5- may not build higher than or as high as the Muslims' buildings, though if they acquire a tall house, it is not razed;

-7- and are forbidden to build new churches.

There is no good reason for accepting this insult. We must rise up and condemn it and the politicians who permit it. Stand up like Pat Condell and let your voice be heard.

Falestine Fabrication Exposed

Caroline Glick & her friends are here to entertain and inform you.


I share this video with you as Sarah Thomas shared it with me on Facebook. I exhort you to watch closely and listen carefully, enjoy, smile, shed a tear as I did and share it with others.

Truly I tell you that the Falestinians have learned their lesson from the Communists and implemented it with great expertise. They have disguised wolves in
lambskins and pulled the wool over the eyes of the world.

Few, few indeed are the intelligent and perceptive minority who see through the disguise and recognize the predator behind the propaganda storm. I hope and pray that this excellent video will expand their number. The time has come to proclaim the fact that there is no truth whatsoever in the Falestinian narrative.

Who will tell us the name of the first king of the Falestinians? Who will tell us the name of their last President? Who will reveal their distinctive language, nomenclature of their currency & cuisine? Exactly when was Jerusalem their capitol city?

Palestinian people do not exist

July 11, '02, Joseph Farah published under that title, in World Net Daily, a revelation of truth difficult for many to accept. He lifted the wool, exposing the fraud perpetrated by the propagandists. One quote in that article stands out above the rest for the clarity of its revelation.

The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism. ...[Zahir Muhsein, P.L.O. Executive Cmte.]

Moral men can not, apprised of this fatal fact, remain silent. We must expose it to the eyes and ears of the world. There is a foundation under the big lie, seldom exposed to view. [Emphasis added.]

Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2477
Narrated Ibn Hawalah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: It will turn out that you will be armed troops, one is Syria, one in the Yemen and one in Iraq. Ibn Hawalah said: Choose for me, Apostle of Allah, if I reach that time. He replied: Go to Syria, for it is Allah's chosen land, to which his best servants will be gathered but if you are unwilling, go to your Yemen, and draw water from your tanks, for Allah has on my account taken special charge of Syria and its people.

Moe prophesied that the Muslims would invade and conquer Iraq, Syria & Yemen. He put a high priority on the conquest of the Roman Province of Syria, saying that Allah had, on his account taken special charge of that province and its people. Let us see exactly what that special charge entails.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

Completion of genocide against Israel is a prerequisite for the opening of the gates of Paradise. That hadith is quoted in the Charter of Hamas, Art. 7.
The time has come for moral men to wake up, wise up and rise up disrespectfully demanding honesty, truthfulness and courage from the demagogues & con men we have elected to lead our nations. Do not vote for anyone who refuses to acknowledge the truth about Islam & Falestine!

Mooned Again

The News Mail reports that U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has demanded the lifting of Israel's blockade of Gaza.
A few choice quotes:

"Everything must be done to prevent another incident of this kind,"

"All concerned should act with a sense of care and responsibility, and in accordance with international law."

Why did you allow the first incident? Why did you not send diplomats to stop the launch of the flotilla? Why did you fail to send international forces to turn those boats back?

International law says that Israel has a right to enforce a blockade against her belligerent enemies. Sending that flotilla was an act of provocation, by design; the obvious intent was to obtain a propaganda advantage against Israel. Israel warned the flotilla, directing them to turn back or divert to a port for inspection. Instead of complying, the provocateurs refused to divert and persisted in their attempt to break the blockade.

The Secretary General's office has a transcript, which I have gleaned for these quotes.

At this sensitive time, it is essential to avoid provocations.

It was essential to avoid provocations at the time of the flotilla's launching. You stood by wringing your hands.

This tragedy only highlights the serious underlying problem. The long-running closure imposed on the Gaza Strip is counter-productive, unsustainable and wrong. It punishes innocent civilians. It must be lifted by the Israeli authorities immediately.

Israel's blockade is not the problem. The problem is Islam's demonic demand for politicide & genocide. Islam will never tolerate the existence of Israel. Her recovery of a tiny fragment of her ancient patrimony proves Allah to be an impotent idol. No Muslim can accept that. That blockade is the only tool Israel has to slow the flow of weapons and the raw materials for making them, into Gaza.

Speaking more broadly, we must advance the proximity talks facilitated by the United States. Despite the latest developments, it is vital for the talks to continue.

No amount of talking will solve the basic problem: Islamic intolerance and aggression. There are only two possible solutions, choose one.
  1. Break the faith of the Muslims, cause them to abandon Islam.
  2. Move them beyond rocket range of Israel. Hell might be far enough.
This week's events underscore the urgency of real progress in the Middle East peace process. I commend President Abbas's courageous decision to continue, and Arab partners for their flexibility.

Courageous decision to do what? To make outrageous, escalating demands without ever meeting any of Fallestine's existing commitments. They still inculcate hatred in their children. They still broadcast incitement in their mass media. They still glorify terrorists. The only thing any reasonable person has to say to them is "go to Hell". As long as they want genocide and politicide, there will be no peace.

Intelligent and rational people look beneath the surface, for the actual roots of this existential conflict. Those roots are in Islam's cannon of scripture, tradition & exegeses.
Allah commanded Muslims to wage war against Jews. He said that he would continually send someone to torment the Jews. Moe said that he owned the earth and wished to expel the Jews. He said that Allah had, on his account, taken special interest in the Levant and made its conquest a high priority. He told the Muslims that they could not enter Paradise until they complete the genocide of the Jews.

Allah promised the Muslims that he would give them dominion over the world. He promised victory. He promised them a 2:1 kill ratio, that they would overcome armies twice their size. Israel's continued existence after several existential attacks proves Allah to be an impotent idol. That is something Muslims can not tolerate. They can never allow Israel to live in peace no matter what concessions she might make.

Allah commanded Muslims to conquer and subjugate the entire world. he threatened them with eternal damnation if they refuse. He promised them eternal bliss in the celestial bordello if they make the effort.

The feeble minded mental midgets we elected to bring peace to the world, keep this nation safe, and those Israel elected to keep her safe are incapable of connecting the data points and discovering the obvious conclusion: that peace is impossible so long as Muslims believe in and attempt to implement Allah's commandments.

As Secretary-General, I stand ready to take any necessary action, and will continue my personal engagement to contribute to a resolution of the conflict.

If that was said with any sincerity, you would sit down and shut up without making any of those annoyingly stupid statements. Instead, you would begin a crusade to eliminate Islam from the face of the earth.

Memri has a video clip of a pep rally aboard the flotilla. The terrorists were chanting a reminder of the conquest of Khaibar. At the end of the clip, one woman declares that they will have one of two good outcomes: martyrdom or Gaza.

Bare Naked Islam has a slide show of weapons taken from militants on the flotilla please take a close look at it and read the accompanying text. This video, which I found in that same post, shows the terrorists preparing to receive the Israeli boarding party. Note the gas masks, rods and slingshots.


Another post at BNI has a video of the attack.


This one is mainly audio & sub titles.


Another BNI post has video of the attack. If you have any respect for Obama, Clinton & Moon after watching this, you are morally defective; the world would be better off without you.


The U.N. is part of the problem, not part of the solution; we need to Quit the U.N. Get the U.S.A. out of the U.N. and vice versa!!!

Waki Paki Jurisprudence

Outlook India reports that the Pakistani jurist who ordered that Facebook be blocked has ordered the Foreign Ministry to direct the permanent Ambassador to the U.N. to submit a resolution complaining of the Everybody Draw Muhammad Day page on Facebook. The ban has been lifted, but could be reimposed at the next hearing June 15.

The article included these titillating tidbits from the order.

"The canons of Islam do not prohibit or limit any individual’s right to freedom of expression and speech.

Rather it emulates the phrase, ‘Your liberty ends where the nose of the other persons starts’, meaning thereby that any right to freedom of expression and speech of one person would not prejudice the right of self-respect and dignity of the other person," the judge said in his order.

"The core issue involved in the instant matter was the publication of blasphemous material which was viewed as a deliberate attempt to malign the very holy and sanctimonious stature of Prophet (Mohammed) and any regulation made for the protection of the deeply sensitive and emotional sentiments should not be viewed as (being) in conflict with an individual’s universally accepted rights of freedom, expressions and speech,"

The canons of Islam expressly forbid any negative expression about Islam, its doctrines and sanctities. We turn to Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 8 to view the penalty for apostasy. Apostasy carries a death sentence.


When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.


In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

O8.7 lists a set of acts which entail apostasy. Items 4,5,6,7,14, 15, 16 & 19 are relevant. Saying anything negative about Allah, Moe and their system gets your head lopped off.

O8.7: Acts that Entail Leaving Islam

(O: Among the things that entail apostasy from Islam (may Allah protect us from them) are:

-1- to prostrate to an idol, whether sarcastically, out of mere contrariness, or in actual conviction, like that of someone who believes the Creator to be something that has originated in time. Like idols in this respect are the sun or moon, and like prostration is bowing to other than Allah, if one intends reverence towards it like the reverence due to Allah;

-2- to intend to commit unbelief, even if in the future. And like this intention is hesitating whether to do so or not: one thereby immediately commits unbelief;

-3- to speak words that imply unbelief such as ``Allah is the third of three,'' or ``I am Allah''-unless one's tongue has run away with one, or one is quoting another, or is one of the friends of Allah Most High (wali, def: w33) in a spiritually intoxicated state of total oblivion (A: friend of Allah or not, someone totally oblivious is as if insane, and is not held legally responsible (dis: k13.1(O:) ) ), for these latter do not entail unbelief;

-4- to revile Allah or His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace);

-5- to deny the existence of Allah, His beginingless eternality, His endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);

-6- to be sarcastic about Allah's name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat;

-7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;

-8- to mockingly say, ``I don't know what faith is'';

-9- to reply to someone who says, ``There is no power or strength save through Allah''; ``Your saying `There's no power or strength, etc,' won't save you from hunger'';

-10- for a tyrant, after an oppressed person says, ``This is through the decree of Allah,'' to reply, ``I act without the decree of Allah'';

-11- to say that a Muslim is an unbeliever (kafir) (dis: w47) in words that are uninterpretable as merely meaning he is an ingrate towards Allah for divinely given blessings (n: in Arabic, also ``kafir'');

-12- when someone asks to be taught the Testification of Faith (Ar. Shahada, the words, ``La ilaha ill Allahu Muhammadun rasulu Llah'' (There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah) ), and a Muslim refuses to teach him it;

-13- to describe a Muslim or someone who wants to become a Muslim in terms of unbelief (kufr);

-14- to deny the obligatory character of something which by the consensus of Muslims (ijma`, def: B7) is part of Islam, when it is well known as such, like the prayer (salat) or even one rak'a from one of the five obligatory prayers, if there is no excuse (def: u2.4);

-15- to hold that any of Allah's messengers or prophets are liars, or to deny their being sent;

(n: `Ala' al-din' Abidin adds the following:

-16- to revile the religion of Islam;

-17- to believe that things in themselves or by their own nature have any causal influence independent of the will of Allah;

-18- to deny the existence of angels or jinn (def: w22), or the heavens;

-19- to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law;

-20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet's message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala'iyya (y4), 423-24). )

Of course that could not apply to us kafiroon, could it? Chapter 11 deals with non-Muslim subjects of the Islamic state; O11.10 lists five acts which violate the treaty of dhimmitude, subjecting the violator to the death penalty. Of these, the fifth item is of interest to us.

-5- or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam.

Got a clue yet? The Jurist ruled that Shari'ah does not impair our right of free expression. Shari'ah explicitly contradicts his ruling. Sorry, Justice Chaudhry, you do not have a right to close off all expression that offends your tender sensibilities. You have a right to withdraw from the presence of the speaker, to change the t.v. or radio channel, or to point your web browser to a different web site. We have a Constitution which says that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." [Emphasis added.] That Constitution is the supreme law of the land, it is superior to Shari'ah and to international law and to your vaunted U.N. resolutions. So, kiss off!

Some people lack extensive knowledge of the tenets of Islam. Some lack the ability and patience to vocalize their outrage. They express their negative emotion with art. Others like me have no artistic skill with which to express our outrage. We are limited to the written and spoken word as a means of expressing our outrage and sharing factual information with our fellows. American citizens have a Constitutionally guaranteed right to express what we know about Moe's War Cult. We will not be silenced.

Everybody Draw Muhammad Day June 21

Everybody Draw Muhammad Day June 21 is a new Facebook group with 170 supporters. It has set June 21, 2010 as the day for celebrating cartoons critical of Islam's Profit.

The new group's wall is already receiving condemnatory comments from Muslims who report urging Facebook to delete the group.
Screenshot of the new page.

Considering the fact that the Pakistani High Court issued an order to submit a resolution to the U.N. General Assembly expressing outrage at the previous Everybody Draw Muhammad Day, this page has a limited life expectancy, enjoy it while you can.

Note the fact that another new group is advertised in the first wall post in the screen shot.

Bashing Islam: Hypocrisy or Free Expression ?

Two Circles published a screed titled Hypocrisy in the guise of freedom of expression which accuses "the West" of hypocrisy.
After making it clear that the Facebook group "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day" is on their mind, they launch their argument.

The Western society has always claimed to be protector of Freedom of Speech. But is it Islam bashing in the garb of Freedom of Speech? Does the West really practice what it preaches? Before Freedom of Speech, the West used to lecture all Asian/ African countries about human rights. But when its own hypocrisy about human rights was exposed in Iraq and Guantanamo and in cases of illegal detentions, West’s human rights chants have reduced drastically.

In my country, free speech is one of our foundational rights, assured by the First Amendment to our Constitution. That right is essential to the establishment & maintenance of a free republican form of government. It is necessary that the citizens be free to name and shame both domestic and foreign threats to their liberties. We must have freedom of expression to alert others to approaching danger: any attempt to encroach on our liberties or the system which establishes & preserves them.

Much to the dismay of M. Zajam & other Muslims, the right of free speech includes Islam bashing, which is a coarse and imprecise way of raising the alarm of approaching danger. Personally, I prefer more refined and precise techniques, which involve exposing the dirty details of Islamic doctrine and practice . Both are allowed under our First Amendment's free speech clause.

There is no human right more essential than the right to life, which Islam denies with Moe's declaration that our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims (Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387) and its declaration of perpetual war against us (Surah At-Taubah 29). There is one way to alienate that right: by initiating aggression. When Iraq trained "the magnificent 19" at Salman Pak, casus belli was established. Holding prisoners of war at Guantanamo or anywhere else is not a violation of human rights. Declaring and prosecuting war on us is the violation of human rights.

Likes of Norris are nowhere to be seen or heard when Holocaust denier is jailed. Each European country has law against denying Holocaust. Did we have a page on Holocaust cartoons on Facebook, the ultimate place of liberty?

My country is not European. our system of laws is different from theirs. We do not outlaw Holocaust denial. I have seen that sort of cartoon and claims on Facebook.

Christianity, Judaism and Islam have recommended severe punishment for Blasphemy. But only Islamic connection makes it to headline. Even UN General Assembly has passed several resolutions which called upon the world to take action against the "defamation of religions”.

Islam has not been defamed, it is infamous, by design. Moe set out to build a reputation for barbarian rapine for the purpose of intimidating his intended victims (Surah Al-Anfal 57, Surah Al-Hashr 13).

Every community reacts in same way when their religious feelings are hurt. It is rightly so.

American Christians withstood such works of art as "Piss Christ" as well as numerous books and movies without rioting or murdering anyone. The U.N. resolutions mentioned above are not limited to cartoons, they condemn all criticism of Islam including blog posts and documentary videos.

Stimulus II: Blowing Smoke...

Wake Up America has broken silence with a press release which I urge you to read. Bottom line: the 'crats are "blowing smoke...." They just passed a fraudulent stimulus bill which goes to the Senate next week.

Our economic problems are caused by irrational actions and government interference in the free market; they won't be solved by more of the same. Our problems won't be solved with expanded national debt and the inevitable crush of interest payments and spiraling interest rates to follow.

WAM Press Release
May 29, 2010

Ignoring the abject failure of last year's "Stimulus" spending spree, which snowballed the now staggering Federal debt, this week the House of Representatives passed a second stimulus bill. "Blue Dog" Democrats who touted their opposition held back their votes for just a day or two before joining their party's "Progressive" leadership in moving this bill to the Senate for final passage. Public attention to the flaws and consequences of this legislation have been kept at bay, in part, by the bill's numerous name changes on its way to passage. Retitled six times H.R.4213 is now named the "American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act of 2010." However, the loopholes this legislation contains far outnumber any which it corrects.

Like its cousins, Obama Care, Serve America, Financial Reform Act, etc. this legislation exceeds a thousand pages. Thus, as these other Obama's make-over-of-America laws, its momentous scope and long term destruction will further derail the American way before most of us ever get to review its actual contents. Excerpted from opencongress, even this brief summary reveals that "Stimulus II" is weighted down by the same fuzzy math that has typified the Progressives disregard for reality and ineptitude for economic problem solving:

- Emphasizing that this is a "smaller stimulus" Stimulus II comes in at a cost of about "$127 billion in new short-term spending." The ruling Democratic party, undeterred by the multi-generational debt they continue to multiply, once again contradicted themselves by its passage. Take, for instance, this pre-passage comment made by VA Democrat, Rep. Gerald Connolly, the day before it sailed through: "But it is not paid for. Until somebody shows me a path for this being paid for, I am a no." Yet, Connolly, like his fellow Democrats, voted "Stimulus II" quickly through the very next day anyway! With a vote of 240 to 170 (all GOP Representatives voted Nay) not one single Democrat voted against its passage.

- Translating the bill's inspiring title into actual fact, its largest single pay-out provides extension of unemployment benefits to the end of November, 2010. It also extends COBRA health care benefits for the unemployed for the same period. This makes it self-evident that its Democratic support serves a primary purpose of vote-getting from the 9.5+ % of Americans who are out of jobs! Evidently, "hoping" We the People just won't notice that, even with its dollar juggling distortions, "Stimulus II" increases the national debt by a minimum of $31 billion dollars! (Even that figure does not take into account that expenditures are immediate while its potential revenue is protracted over the next decade.)

- As for the rest of the $127 billion dollars it draws out of thin air, "Stimulus II" claims it will collect about $47 billion dollars in new taxes over the next ten years. An elementary school child could calculate that spending so much money (that doesn't even exist) now for a fraction of a return in the future, just doesn't add up. So, why can't a Congress of educated adults see that obvious outcome?!

- And where are these tax dollars to come from? In part, from a revised tax code for hedge fund managers. Current law allows these financial moguls to file at "capital gains rates rather than regular income tax...(this) creates situations where billionaires end up paying a lower tax rate than their secretaries." Under "Stimulus II", these individuals will pay normal income tax - but only on "the first 60% of their income." The remaining 40% of their revenue will "still be taxed at the lower rate." This part of the bill conveys the double talk that's trademark of Obama's administration by appearing to address inequities while actually catering to their Wall Street supporters.

- "Stimulus II" 2nd largest expenditure "delays a scheduled 21.2% cut in doctors Medicare reimbursements until January 2012." This huge pay cut for physicians, repeatedly forestalled since 2003, by the Democratic controlled Congress, thus borrows non-existent funds to delay the inevitable for this calendar year. Thus, another unresolved crisis is swept under the rug until after November's elections.

- The other main "tax loophole" addressed closes American companies ability to operate offshore for tax savings and prevents S corporations from avoiding Social Security taxes. It's noteworthy that this Act corresponds to Secretary of State Clinton's public statement this week that she still believes "the rich" are not paying enough in taxes.

- The bill's 3rd largest item is about $25 billion more for Bulld America Bonds (from the original "Stimulus") with reduced rate loans for state and local governments to undertake infrastructure and highway repairs. Is anyone on Capitol Hill noticing that those governmental bodies are already broke and have no means to repay such loans?

- As for any actual "Stimulus" in this Act, it is said to provide "some small business tax credits . . . a new summer jobs program . . .and tax incentive for clean energy development." Has no one told Congress that forestalling the unemployment crisis, expanding the national debt and generating (again, pre-election only) summer jobs are not viable ways to build up an economy?

The above overview of this House passed nonsense is from Open Congress. Other sources indicate numerous large pay-outs for teacher's pensions, labor unions, Native Americans, etc. Combined, these expenditures warrant a truer title of this bill to be "Protect the Party Pay Out Act."

No doubt more secreted land mines still lay in wait, once this sweeping new Fed package is examined. At first glance, we know this much: the Democrats are back to the press printing billions more dollars. What for? "Hoping" to hold pre-election favor with party patrons and the long-term unemployed; to temporaily plug one hole in their Health Care mess; to shore up their youth vote with part-time, short term jobs and to enable their politically driven "green drive" while giving a semblance of support for state infrastructure. Whose to pay the bill for these self-serving objectives? Certainly not the Congressmen who voted through the fiasco they call "Stimulus II."

It doesn't take an economist to see nothing of note in this massive spending spree meaningful to buoy real job creation. What it reveals, instead, is a short-sighted one sided political agenda that brings unfunded mandates to a whole new level of precipitating total national economic disaster. Adding to the travesty of this insane legislation is the fact that any pretense from Blue Dogs of fiscal responsibility has crumbled with "Stimulus II" passage. Only 16 Democrats did not vote for this bill, choosing instead to abstain from voting - the political equivalent of hiding behind a tree and hoping that no one will notice.

Ironically, other media reports seem more concerned with the one-week gap in funding unemployment (which expires June 2) than this bill's absence of meaningful employment creation. Pretending a political magic Act (with the word "Jobs" in the title) can substitute for sound math, H.R. 4213 will go before the Senate on June 7 (after that weary body returns from their week long Memorial Day holiday.) Every concerned American should contact your Senators now - at their in-state offices. Let them know you are paying attention to the national debit, even though Capitol Hill isn't!
