A Spiritual Failing of The Left

Sarah Palin

May she take another shot some day...

HOLD ON TO YOUR HAT HARRY. I don't think I can let you off the hook that easily—I think we can agree that the problem with the most liberal of the liberals—those who want to engage in political talk at the dinner table, and then woe to you if you disagree, is at heart spiritual. They remind me of those people referred to in the old Hebrew testament who built that tower in Babel so they could be like God.

Wasn't there also a reference to them by Dostoyevsky, the fussy Russian writer? The liberal mind set seems to be: stay up in heaven God. We've got this. We're on the job. We can handle it. And if you're not proud of us, we'll take the credit anyway. And so they continue to make a mess of things, by any means necessary. Thus their disdain for people like humble but decisive George W. Bush, or more recently, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann who exhibit something I would call a humble arrogance. The political hoi polloi and even their leadership however seem to best operate from a position arrogant humility often seen in money-grubbing televangelists.

But like a good watch, Sarah Palin takes a lickin' but she keeps on tickin' and you can read that any damn way you please.

On July 3, 2009, Palin announced that she would not run for re-election in the 2010 Alaska gubernatorial election and would resign before the end of the month. In her announcement, Palin stated that since August 2008, both she and the state had been expending an "insane" amount of time and money ($2.5 million) responding to "opposition research", 150 FOIA requests and 15 "frivolous" legal ethics complaints filed by "political operatives" against her. She also dovetailed to a decision to not seek re-election and to resign from office in an effort to would being a lame duck politician who is ineffective or is "milking" the taxpayers by drawing a paycheck and funding useless travels. Adding, "I'm not putting Alaska through that...

Palin and her husband Todd had personally incurred more than $500,000 in legal fees defending against ethics charges brought against her as governor even though all the complaints were dismissed. Lt. Governor Sean Parnell, said it “really had to do with the weight on her, the concern she had for the cost of all the ethics investigations and the like—the way that that weighed on her with respect to her inability to just move forward Alaska’s agenda on behalf of Alaskans in the current context of the environment.” The Alaska Governor transfer of power to Sean Parnell occurred in Fairbanks on July 26, 2009.

In December 2010, new rules governing Alaska executive branch ethics, stemming from Sarah Palin's tenure as governor, took effect. "These include allowing for the state to pay legal costs for officials cleared of ethics violations; (and) allowing for a family member of the governor or lieutenant governor to travel at state cost in certain circumstances..."

You Gotta Serve Somebody

The concept of Left verus Right has existed since the French Revolution. The "Left" self-identified with the goats of the Bible, and anti-Catholic MPs claimed the seats on the left side of the chamber. From the beginning, the Left excoriated the "Right" as sheep entralled to the Shepherd of Rome.
O UR DULY ESTEEMED ESSAYIST Clarice Feldman writing a piece n today's cluster of new American Thinker articles, describes the Left as people delighted...

"...in the absolute certainty of the righteousness and soundness of their views, and their right to have them automatically accepted as the approved model for all right thinking people."

Progressives hold about a dozen core beliefs plus variations. Half of their beliefs contradict the other half. With a little study, skewering them can be reduced to just a few chess moves. The corrective screeching that results is music.

We also welcome the contributions of American Thinker Robert McClain:

Saul Alinsky

Saul Alinsky in 1960s Chicago

The concept of Left verus Right has existed since the French Revolution. The "Left" self-identified with the goats of the Bible, and anti-Catholic MPs claimed the seats on the left side of the chamber. From the beginning, the Left excoriated the "Right" as sheep entralled to the Shepherd of Rome. This hatred of religion took on many forms over the centuries and is the hallmark of leftist ideology. In the 20th Century alone, Leftists sought, and very nearly succeeded, in destroying religious faith. In Lenin's Russia, Stalin's USSR, Hitler's Germany, Mussolini's Italy, Mao's China, Pol Pot's Cambodia. The Left hates religion, but not all religions are equal. Judaism and its offshoot, Christianity, seem to be the main targets of the Left.

At their core, leftists despise God as well as anyone "dumb" enough to follow God's commandments against lying, stealing, murder—or promiscuously coveting someone or something. Leftists are not opposed to any of these especially if done to advance the cause.

There is more validity to Saul Alinsky's dedication to Lucifer—the first revolutionary—than probably anyone can imagine. Leftists proudly follow their father who was a liar and a murderer from the beginning. This is primarily the reason the Left attempts to control the lives and beliefs of every person on earth. They offer "freedom" to break God's commandments, but in exchange, they offer only slavery. Remember, impresario magnifique, Bob Dylan sings with no strings attached, "You gotta serve somebody."

Ronald Reagan was partially correct when he declared the Soviet Union to be the focus of evil in the modern world. His resolute belief in "We win, they lose" brought about the demise of the Left's Promised Land. But the Left is not vanquished yet. They have almost succeeded in having all expression of religious faith banned from the West. But they will fight to the last drop of your blood to make certain that Islam's belief in Allah flourishes. Hypocritical until one remembers the Left adheres to the dictum, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."

The Left is the enemy of God, believers, and liberty. They despise the United States and everything we stand for. For the Left, we are the focus of evil in the modern world, and we must be destroyed.

Raging against the dying of the light? More like raging against the light dawning in this nation and in other western nations. We, the People of the United States, will be free or we will die fighting against tyranny. The Left has held sway over our institutions for many decades. Yet, they are losing the war on freedom and faith. They have reason to rage. Let it be their last act of desperation and impotence. After all, this life is all they have.

Yes Virginia, That's Why We Vote

Yes Virginia

Yes, Virginia...this is why we vote.

HEY BRIGHT PATRIOTS. IT'S TIME WE TAKE ANOTHER hospitable blow to the cheek from the always spot-on Ranger Joe, in a comment of his we discovered over at the stalwart American Thinker. The RJ comment really requires no other introductory context than a quick memory flash to the "permanent record" the current administration denies we have witnessed play out so far. Thanks to the snippy corporate media, a rather portentous and lawless organism which lives and dies by the snappy snippet, there is still ten percent of the population who haven't caught a clue.

Let's whittle, however, that context down to a glance at His BO Majesties debt ceiling theatre—played to an audience suffering in type after Ben Franklin's own Paradise Lost, patients, few of which seem very happy over this deal of a republic gone fiscally, and thus existentially mad, except those knaves who were spinning us for all we've got in our pockets, constitutions, and nerve:

Why can't people get it through their thick skulls that The Great Obama Decline is deliberate social engineering. Wake up and smell the coffee. We are supposed to be insecure and worried about the future. It's the manipulation of a street con artist to extort protection money from a nervous fruit cart vendor...aka...community organizing. The Leninist left are masters of mass psychology. They've studied us like lab rats. Ivy League social scientists are engineering this whole debacle. All the angry conservative pundits on FBN can't shame these fools because they love the media exposure. From private individuals to the government we are in irretrievable debt up to our eyeballs. As prices slowly go up and income stays the same...people break out in a cold panic sweat. The collapse of the free market is the ancient goal of the Marxist Cult. An economic depression will cause Greek-style unrest and the imposition of Martial Law will follow. It was Hitler's successful modus operandi to found the 1000 Year Reich with his 1923 Munich riots (BTW...today's the anniversary of his 1933 landslide election victory). They are all diabolical sadists. We are being punished and plundered as a bourgeois criminal class. Chairman Barry gloats and chuckles when he sees his prospects...

Shall we whisper it? Should we instead SHOUT IT from every room top in the cities, barn rafters in the rural heartland, parking lots of all the anemic businesses from sea to shining sea?

Yes, Virginia. President Barack Whateverhisnameis and Uncle Joe Biden MUST be sent to teh showers in 2012...

George Soros, Feds Seize Control of America’s Flooded Farmland

Severe_Weather_Flooding

Missouri levee break...

AMID THE CHAOTIC WEATHER SYSTEMS thus far in 2011, the federal government has twisted and exacerbated a natural catastrophe to victimize American farming families, while subsequently staging a land grab to further the UN’s Agenda 21 protocols, all at once. Despite record amounts of snowfall this past winter, the snowpack was measured and melted predictably. Yet the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers claimed to be surprised by the melt-water amounts. As a result, they planned to detonate the Birds Point levee in Missouri to prevent runoff water from devastating the town of Cairo, Ill. Bizarrely, the feds thought it more intelligent to flood 130,000 acres of rural farmland, and thus a necessary part of the food supply, than to affect an urban zone of 2,800 people, one-third of whom already live below the poverty level.

Detonated levees might bring the Ninth Ward of New Orleans to mind, and one might suspect the federal government was attempting to avoid another accusation of racism, classism and inaction. However, commodities broker Ann Barnhardt has revealed another possible scheme at work. She wrote on her website: “A Missouri farming and ranching contact just got off a conference call wherein he was informed that the federal government is sending out letters to all of the flooded farmers in the Missouri River flood plain notifying them that the Army Corps of Engineers will offer to buy their land.”

The Kansas City Star supports this claim, reporting that 17 Missouri families received a letter from the Army Corps of Engineers “offering to buy private land along the Missouri River for a wildlife conservation project. The letter was dated June 6, when floodwaters were beginning to rise.”

Later in the article, it was noted that “Karl Mueller, chief of civil works for the Army Corps’ Kansas City office, said the agency was not taking advantage of the flooding to buy farmland” and that the letters were a case of “unfortunate timing.” When asked if the government would be compensating them for losses, Ms. Barnhardt told this reporter: “Of course not. The feds are calling it an act of God.” Ms. Barnhardt also makes the stunning connection of George Soros and a company he is investing in called Ospraie Capital Management. It seems Ospraie is also buying farmland, and Soros’s investments have netted him control of “the third-largest grain company in the U.S., with 280 million bushels of storage capacity.”

The liberal Center for American Progress receives large donations from Soros. Plus, its former executive vice president for policy, Melody Barnes, was recently named to the White House Rural Council.

According to a popular news website, The Blaze, this council “makes recommendations to the president on streamlining and leveraging federal investments in rural areas to increase the impact of federal dollars and create economic opportunities to improve the quality of life in rural America.” The group’s staffers also “coordinate federal efforts directed toward the growth and development of geographic regions that encompass both urban and rural areas” which, The Blaze states, “sounds very similar to the language found in the UN plan for sustainable cities known as Agenda 21.”

Ms. Barnhardt says, “This is about driving everything toward a Marxist utopia. They are attempting to control the food supply and are seeking to make private agricultural banking virtually impossible by forcing all agricultural lending through the USDA and the government.”

Geert Wilders: Unmasking Muhammad

Geert Wilders

Geert Wilders fiddles with headphone...

English translation of an op-ed piece that Geert Wilders published today in a Dutch magazine [see below].

TO MORE FULLY UNDERSTAND WHY ISLAM is a mortal danger one must not only consider the Qu'ran, the Hadiths, and the Sunnah but also the character of Muhammad, who conceived the Qu'ran and the entirety of Islam.

There has been much analysis of Muhammad’s mental sanity. In spite of all the available research, it is rarely mentioned or debated. It is a taboo to discuss the true nature of the man whom one and a half billion Muslims around the world regard as a holy prophet and example to be followed. That taboo must be breached in the West, and here in the Netherlands.
The Qu'ran is not just a book. Muslims believe that Allah himself wrote it and that it was dictated to Muhammad in the original version, the Umm al-Kitab, which is kept on a table in heaven. Consequently one cannot argue with the contents. Who would dare to disagree with what Allah himself has written? This explains much of Muhammadan behaviour, from the violence of jihad to the hatred and persecution of Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims and apostates. What we in the West regard as abnormal, is perfectly normal for Islam.

A second insuperable problem with Islam is the figure of Muhammad. He is not just anyone. He is al-insan al-kamil, the perfect man. To become a Muslim one must pronounce the Shahada (the Muslim creed). By pronouncing the Shahada one testifies that there is no god that can be worshipped except Allah, and one testifies that Muhammad is his servant and messenger.

The Qu'ran, and hence Allah, lays down that Muhammad’s life must be imitated. The consequences of this are horrendous and can be witnessed on a daily basis.

There has been much analysis of Muhammad’s mental sanity. In spite of all the available research, it is rarely mentioned or debated. It is a taboo to discuss the true nature of the man whom one and a half billion Muslims around the world regard as a holy prophet and example to be followed. That taboo must be breached in the West, and here in the Netherlands.

Ali Sina is an Iranian ex-Muslim who established the organisation for apostates of Islam Faith Freedom International. In his latest book he posits that Muhammad is a narcissist, a paedophile, a mass murderer, a terrorist, a misogynist, a lecher, a cult leader, a madman, a rapist, a torturer, an assassin and a looter. Sina has offered 50,000 dollars for the one who can prove otherwise. Nobody has claimed the reward as yet. And no wonder, as the description is based on the Islamic texts themselves, such as the hadiths, the descriptions of Muhammad’s life from testimonies of contemporaries.

The historical Muhammad was the savage leader of a gang of robbers from Medina. Without scruples they looted, raped and murdered. The sources describe orgies of savagery where hundreds of people’s throats were cut, hands and feet chopped off, eyes cut out, entire tribes massacred. An example is the extinction of the jewish Kurayza tribe in Medina in 627. One of those who chopped off their heads was Muhammad. The women and children were sold as slaves. Confronted with the lunacy of Islamic terrorists today, it is not hard to find out where the lunacy comes from.

In Vienna the women’s rights activist Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was recently sentenced to paying a fine for insulting a religion by calling Muhammad a paedophile. However, that is the truth. Numerous hadiths contain testimonies by Muhammad’s favourite wife, the child wife Aisha. Aisha literally says: “The prophet married me when I was six years old, and had intercourse with me when I was nine.”

According to the historian Theophanes (752-817), Muhammad was an epileptic. Epileptic crises are sometimes accompanied by hallucinations, perspiration from the forehead and foaming at the mouth, the very symptoms which Muhammad displayed during his visions.

A public debate about the true nature and character of Muhammad can provide insight and support to Muslims all over the world who wish to leave Islam.
In his book “The other Muhammad” (1992) the Flemish psychologist Dr. Herman Somers concludes that in his forties the “prophet” began to suffer from acromegaly, a condition caused by a tumor in the pituitary gland, a small organ that is situated just below the brain. When the tumor in the pituitary gland causes too much pressure in the brain, people start to see and hear things that are not there. Somers’s psychopathological diagnosis of Muhammad’s condition is: organic hallucinatory affliction with paranoid characteristics.

The German medical historian Armin Geus speaks of a paranoid hallucinatory schizophrenia. A similar analysis can be found in the book “The Medical Case of Muhammad” by the physician Dede Korkut.

In his book “Psychology of Mohammed: Inside the Brain of a Prophet” Dr. Masud Ansari calls Muhammad “the perfect personification of a psychopath in power.” Muhammad had an unhinged paranoid personality with an inferiority complex and megalomaniac tendencies. In his forties he starts having visions that lead him to believe he has a cosmic mission, and there is no stopping him.

The truth is not always pleasant or politically correct. On the basis of the research referred to above it can be argued that the Islamic creed obliges one and a half billion people around the world, including the one million living in the Netherlands, to take Muhammad as their example. There is no turning back once one has become a Muslim. For even though article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that every person has the right to “change his religion or belief,” in Islam there is a death penalty for leaving the faith.

Anyone who voices criticism of Islam and Muhammad is in grave personal danger—as I have experienced. And whoever attempts to escape from the influence of Islam and Muhammad risks death. We cannot continue to accept this state of affairs. A public debate about the true nature and character of Muhammad can provide insight and support to Muslims all over the world who wish to leave Islam.

Apostates are heroes and more than ever they deserve the support of freedom loving people all over the world. Party politics should not be at play in this matter. It is time for us to help these people by exposing Muhammad.
