Obama in response to international security update: “Don’t bother me with this sh*t."

[The staff member in question was apparently Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken. The name of the Pentagon official could not be confirmed.]
Hours prior to taking off for his Martha’s Vineyard millionaires’ paradise vacation, White House staff in conjunction with someone from the Pentagon, attempted to update the president on international security concerns, namely those focused on both Syria and Iraq, as well as the ongoing Gaza conflict, an attempt that was brushed off by a clearly annoyed Barack Obama who wanted nothing more than to turn his back on the demands of a job he long ago grew tired of.

Moving To Mexico

Dear President Obama:

I'm planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.

We're planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and we'll need your help to make a few arrangements.

We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.

I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, The President of Mexico, that I'm on my way over?

Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.

3. Please print all Mexican Government forms in English.

4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers.

5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.

6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school.

7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch.

8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy access to government services.

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but I don't plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won't make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my housetop, put U.S. flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.

14. I want to receive free food stamps.

15. Naturally, I'll expect free rent subsidies.

16. I'll need income tax credits so that although I don't pay Mexican taxes, I'll receive money from the government.

17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays $4,500.00 to help me buy a new car.

18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I'll get a monthly income in retirement.

I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U.S. from Mexico. I am sure that the President of Mexico won't mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

Amazing how stupid this looks when you put it in writing!

This is Canada's Top Ten List of America's Stupidity

Of course we look like idiots .... because we are.
Number 10) Only in America...could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate campaign fund-raising event.
Number 9) Only in America ...could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans - 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!
Number 8) Only in America...could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.
Number 7) Only in America...can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.
Number 6) Only in America...would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just 'magically' become American citizens (probably should be number one).
Number 5) Only in America....could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as "extremist" .
Number 4) Only in America...could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.
Number 3) Only in America...could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).
Number 2) Only in America does the IRS collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year - for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn't have nearly enough money.
And Number 1) Only in America...could the rich people - who pay 86% of all income taxes - be accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at all.

(89th Sura out of 114 Suras in Qur'an based on original Chronological Order - 3rd Sura revealed in Medina)


28- Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends rather than believers; and whoever does this, he shall have nothing of (the guardianship of) Allah, but you should guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully; and Allah makes you cautious of (retribution from) Himself; and to Allah is the eventual coming.

Narrated Um Kulthum bint Uqba:
That she heard Allah's Apostle saying, "He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar."

Sahih Bukhari
Narrated 'Ali:
Whenever I tell you a narration from Allah's Apostle, by Allah, I would rather fall down from the sky than ascribe a false statement to him, but if I tell you something between me and you (not a Hadith) then it was indeed a trick (i.e., I may say things just to cheat my enemy). No doubt I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, where-ever you find them, kill them, for who-ever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection."

Sahih Muslim
Humaid b. 'Abd al-Rahman b. 'Auf reported that his mother Umm Kulthum daughter of 'Uqba b. Abu Mu'ait, and she was one amongst the first emigrants who pledged allegiance to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him), as saying that she heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: A liar is not one who tries to bring reconciliation amongst people and speaks good (in order to avert dispute), or he conveys good. Ibn Shihab said he did not hear that exemption was granted in anything what the people speak as lie but in three cases: in battle, for bringing reconciliation amongst persons and the narration of the words of the husband to his wife, and the narration of the words of a wife to her husband (in a twisted form in order to bring reconciliation between them).

Sahih Bukhari
Volume 5, Book 59, Number 369:
Allah's Apostle said, "Who is willing to kill Ka'b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?" Thereupon Muhammad bin Maslama got up saying, "O Allah's Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?" The Prophet said, "Yes," Muhammad bin Maslama said, "Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab). "The Prophet said, "You may say it." ….

Tasfir ibn Kathir (One of Islam's most authentic commentaries on the Qur'an using the Hadith)
The Prohibition of Supporting the Disbelievers


... such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly. For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda' said, "We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.'' Al-Bukhari said that Al-Hasan said, "The Tuqyah is allowed until the Day of Resurrection.''

[Tuqyah or Taqiyya = Islamic Deceit]



====
The Reliance of the Traveller
(Book of Islamic Law - Sharia)  - Lying
PERMISSIBLE LYING
r8.2 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,
"He who settles disagreements between people to bring about good or says something commendable is not a liar."


This much is related by both Bukhari and Muslim, with Muslim's version recording that Umm Kulthum added,
"I did not hear him permit untruth in anything people say, except for three things: war, settling disagreements and a man talking with his wife or she with him (A:in smoothing over differences),"

This is an explicit statement that lying is sometimes permissible for a given interest, scholars having established criteria defining what types of it are lawful. The best analysis of it I have seen is by Imam Ghazali. If something is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish itthrough lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible (N:i.e. when the purpose of lying is to circumvent someone who is preventing one from doing something permissible), and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory. When for example one is concealing a muslim from an oppressor who asks where he is, it is obligatory to lie about his being hidden. Or when a person deposits an article with one for safekeeping and an oppressor wanting to appropriate it inquires about it, it is obligatory to lie about having concealed it, for if one informs him about the article and he then siezes it, one is financially liable(A:to the owner)to cover the article's cost. Whether the purpose is war, settling a disagreement, or gaining the sympathy of a victim legally entitled to retaliate against one so that he will forbear to do so; it is not unlawful to ;lie when any of these aims can only be attained through lying. But is religiously more precautionary (def:c6.5) in all such cases to employ words that give misleadng impression, meaning to intend by one's words something that is literally true, in respect to which one is not lying (def:r10.2) white the outward purport of the words deceives the hearer, though even if one does not have such an intention and merely lies without intending anything else, it is not unlawful in the above circumstances.`This is true of every expression connected with a legitimating desired end, whether one's own or another's. An example of a legitimating end of one's own is when an oppressor intending to appropriate one's property inquires about it, in which case one may deny it. Or if a ruler asks one about a wicked act one has committed that is solely between oneself and Allah Most High (N: i.e. it does not concern the rights of another), in which case one is entitled to disclaim it, such as by saying, 'I did not commit fornication,'or'I did not drink.' There are many well known hadiths in which those who admitted they deserved punishment were given prompting (A: by the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace)) to retract their confessions. An example of a legitimating desired end of another is when one is asked about another's secret and one disacknowledges it. And so on. One should compare the bad consequences entailed by lying to those entailed by telling the truth, and if the consequences of telling the truth are more damaging, on is entitled to lie, though if the reverse is true or if one does not know which entails more damage, them lying is unlawful. Whenever lying is permissible, if the factor which permits it is desired end of one's own, it is recommended not to lie, but when the factor that permits it is the desired end of another, it is not lawful to infringe upon his rights. Strictness (A: as opposed to the above dispensations (rukhsa, def:c6.2)) is to forgo lying in every case where it is not legally obligatory."


5-year-old Christian boy cut in half by ISIS

“I’m almost in tears because I’ve just had somebody in my room whose little child was cut in half,” he said. “I baptized his child in my church in Baghdad. This little boy, they named him after me – he was called Andrew.” One of a now endless parade of barbarian acts, inhumanity and unspeakable horror committed in the name of Allah.
The Catholic.org report said the images and videos are made and distributed “to intimidate others.” One showed blood gushing from a woman whose throat was slit. Another was of a “distraught father in Syria” holding the body of his decapitated daughter, who was executed because she was of a Christian family.

Bogie & Bacall: A Hollywood Romance for the Ages

R.I.P. Betty Joan Perske.
“You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together, and…blow.” With that seductive line, delivered with a steely glare and husky voice, the world was introduced to a screen siren for the ages: Lauren Bacall. The line, later named the 34th greatest in the history of cinema by the American Film Institute, was delivered in Howard Hawks’s To Have and Have Not and written by none other than William Faulkner. And the dumbstruck man on the receiving end of the double entendre was Humphrey Bogart who, at 44, had a quarter of a century on this sultry, 19-year-old ingénue. It was the beginning of a beautiful romance—one that would become part of Hollywood lore.

Bacall, who passed away August 12 at 89 after suffering a stroke in her home, leaves behind a rich screen and stage résumé that includes two Tony Awards (for Applause in ’70 and Woman of the Year in ’81), an Academy Award nomination (The Mirror Has Two Faces, ’96), and a number of classic films, including To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, and Key Largo. In addition to her stellar body of work, she will always be remembered for being the no-nonsense half of Bogie and Bacall.

Freedom, peace, tolerance, equality...

...do NOT mean the same thing in Islam as they do in the West!
When we consider the actual meanings of “freedom” “peace” “tolerance” and “equality” as articulated by Islam itself, we find that all these concepts are defined in ways that promote Islamic Supremacy: freedom is “freedom from unbelief” – i.e. freedom from anything that is “un-Islamic”; peace is found only in the practice of Islam including the imposition of Sharia law and, more grandly, that on a global scale; tolerance is found in subjugating non-Muslims and equality is only found within the same “band” of the religiously defined social hierarchy.

Thus the next time you hear a Muslim speaker explaining how “Islam is a religion of peace, freedom, tolerance and equality”; at least you will know what is meant.

Losing a friend

Just learned that a new friend of ours John Fasano passed away July 19, 2014.

Comments on Deadline Hollywood all say what we discovered...John was so funny, generous, talented, and well-loved and will be really, really missed by all who were lucky enough to know him.

More about him and his career at Hollywood Reporter and Variety.

We had such a great time during this last year with John and his wife, Edie--they lived half a block down the tree and grass-lined streets against the mountains and across the street from our fantastic mutual yoga teacher, Marydale. Such good times!

They sold their place shortly after we sold ours last April and we were getting ready for them to visit us any day here in Arizona! My husband had planned to launch a relentless campaign to get them to move here (they were in the process of deciding among 5 or 6 different locations around the country).

Friends and good people are hard to find.

So, so damn sorry.

Many are attempting to play down the threat from this virus by stating that unless you "exchange bodily fluids" with someone that you don't have anything to worry about.

If that was truly the case, then how in the world have more than 100 health workers contracted the virus so far?

Health professionals that deal with Ebola take extreme precautions to keep from being exposed to the disease.

But despite those extreme measures, they are catching it too.

Why the West Loves Lying to Itself About Islam

Say that you get a tempting offer from a Nigerian prince and decide to invest some money in helping him transfer his vast fortune from Burkina Faso or Dubai over to the bank across the street. The seemingly simple task of bringing over the 18 million dollars left to him by his father hits some snags which require you to put in more and more of your own money.

Eventually you have invested more than you ever would have ever done up front, just trying to protect the sunk cost, the money that you already sank into Prince Hussein Ngobo’s scheme. And to protect your self-esteem, you must go on believing that, no matter what Prince Ngobo does, he is credible and sincere. Any failings in the interaction must be your fault. Anyone who tells you otherwise must be a Ngobophobe.

Now imagine that Prince Ngobo’s real name is Islam.

That is where Western elites find themselves now. They invested heavily in the illusion of a compatible Islamic civilization. Those investments, whether in Islamic immigration or Islamic democracy or peace with Islam have turned toxic, but dropping those investments is as out of the question as writing off Prince Ngobo as a con artist and walking away feeling like a fool. Western elites, who fancy themselves more intelligent and more enlightened than the wise men and prophets of every religion, and who base their entire right to rule on that intelligence and enlightenment, are not in the habit of admitting that they are fools.

Laurie Anderson's Farewell to Lou Reed

This story is from the November 21st, 2013 issue of Rolling Stone.
Last spring, at the last minute, he received a liver transplant, which seemed to work perfectly, and he almost instantly regained his health and energy. Then that, too, began to fail, and there was no way out. But when the doctor said, "That's it. We have no more options," the only part of that Lou heard was "options" – he didn't give up until the last half-hour of his life, when he suddenly accepted it – all at once and completely. We were at home – I'd gotten him out of the hospital a few days before – and even though he was extremely weak, he insisted on going out into the bright morning light.

As meditators, we had prepared for this – how to move the energy up from the belly and into the heart and out through the head. I have never seen an expression as full of wonder as Lou's as he died. His hands were doing the water-flowing 21-form of tai chi. His eyes were wide open. I was holding in my arms the person I loved the most in the world, and talking to him as he died. His heart stopped. He wasn't afraid. I had gotten to walk with him to the end of the world. Life – so beautiful, painful and dazzling – does not get better than that. And death? I believe that the purpose of death is the release of love.

At the moment, I have only the greatest happiness and I am so proud of the way he lived and died, of his incredible power and grace.

I'm sure he will come to me in my dreams and will seem to be alive again. And I am suddenly standing here by myself stunned and grateful. How strange, exciting and miraculous that we can change each other so much, love each other so much through our words and music and our real lives.

Get ready: These are the next terrorist targets in the U.S.

2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Jim Garrow: Says Muslim Terrorists To Unleash 9/11 Shopping Mall Bombing Attacks On America

Yesterday, Dr. Garrow included three more target dates:
Intelligence Rumblings:

I have avoided sharing certain information because I took an oath and will not break that oath. I am skating on the edge today because of information that I would be derelict in my duty if I did not share it. Islamists currently in the country, aided by those who have recently arrived via the southern sieve we call a border and those who boldly came on aircraft in a variety of disguises have a purpose in their criminality. Be warned, this is not for the faint of heart.

The target will be shopping malls. The method will be with explosive devices meant to inflict suffering and death and to wound as many as possible. This is terrorism in its lowest form. The purpose is to inflict fear in the hearts of Americans through this targeting of where we go to shop and relax.

The date will be a significant one for the islamists. The event will happen simultaneously across America at hundreds of locations (note the number). The police, DHS, and security services throughout the nation should be warned and take appropriate action.

Why release this on Facebook? It turns out that the necessary agencies are reading my stuff. Why make phone calls when this gets the news out in a speedy fashion to all of them in an instant message.

The al-Shabab terrorists who seized a Kenyan shopping mall for four days tortured, maimed and mutilated some of their 67 victims, leaving a tattered scene of ghoulish, gruesome remains that investigators likened to scenes from a horror movie.

Hostages were left hanging and had their eyes gouged, others were dismembered. Others had their throats slashed or were castrated and had fingers amputated, according to media reports quoting soldiers, medical personnel and investigators sorting through the rubble of the collapsed mall.

Divorce, anyone?

Subject: Fwd: College Student
Date: June 30, 2014

The person that wrote this is a college student. Perhaps there is hope for us after all.

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is a model separation agreement:

--Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
--We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.

--You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.--Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.
--We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.

--You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.
--We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.

 --You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.
 --We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks.
 --We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood

--You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.

--You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.
--We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values
.
--You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
--We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.

--You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
--We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.

27-year border patrol veteran accuses Obama administration of a coverup

The video interview posted here is worth watching in its entirety. Zach Taylor is a 27 year veteran Border Patrol agent with supervisory experience. He has testified before Congress as an expert witness on criminal activity in wilderness areas. His message is credible. He accuses the federal government in a coverup that is deliberately shielding critical information from the public.

Taylor says that whoever is perpetrating the border crisis is engaged in a perfect asymmetrical military tactic.

Some highlights of Sharia Law

Some highlights of Sharia Law from Nonie Darwish:
1- Jihad defined as “to war against non-Muslims to establish the religion” is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state (Caliph). Muslim Caliphs who refuse jihad are in violation of Sharia and unfit to rule.

2- A Caliph can hold office through seizure of power meaning through force.

3- A Caliph is exempt from being charged with serious crimes such as murder, adultery, robbery, theft, drinking and in some cases of rape.

4- A percentage of Zakat (alms) must go towards jihad.

5- It is obligatory to obey the commands of the Caliph, even if he is unjust.

6- A caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave and a male.

7- The Muslim public must remove the Caliph in one case, if he rejects Islam.

8- A Muslim who leaves Islam must be killed immediately.

9- A Muslim will be forgiven for murder of : 1) an apostasy 2) an adulterer 3) a highway robber. Making vigilante street justice and honor killing acceptable.

10- A Muslim will not get the death penalty if he kills a non-Muslim.

11- Sharia never abolished slavery and sexual slavery and highly regulates it. A master will not be punished for killing his slave.

12- Sharia dictates death by stoning, beheading, amputation of limbs, flogging and other forms of cruel and unusual punishments even for crimes of sin such as adultery.

13- Non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims and must comply to Sharia if they are to remain safe. They are forbidden to marry Muslim women, publicly display wine or pork, recite their scriptures or openly celebrate their religious holidays or funerals. They are forbidden from building new churches or building them higher than mosques. They may not enter a mosque without permission. A non-Muslim is no longer protected if he commits adultery with a Muslim woman or if he leads a Muslim away from Islam.

14- It is a crime for a non-Muslim to sell weapons to someone who will use them against Muslims. Non-Muslims cannot curse a Muslim, say anything derogatory about Allah, the Prophet, or Islam, or expose the weak points of Muslims. However, the opposite is not true for Muslims.

15- A non-Muslim cannot inherit from a Muslim.

16- Banks must be Sharia compliant and interest is not allowed.

17- No testimony in court is acceptable from people of low-level jobs, such as street sweepers or a bathhouse attendant. Women in such low level jobs such as professional funeral mourners cannot keep custody of their children in case of divorce.

18- A non-Muslim cannot rule even over a non-Muslims minority.

19- Homosexuality is punishable by death.

20- There is no age limit for marriage of girls under Sharia. The marriage contract can take place anytime after birth and consummated at age 8 or 9.

21- Rebelliousness on the part of the wife nullifies the husband’s obligation to support her, gives him permission to beat her and keep her from leaving the home.

22- Divorce is only in the hands of the husband and is as easy as saying: “I divorce you” and becomes effective even if the husband did not intend it.

23- There is no community property between husband and wife and the husband’s property does not automatically go to the wife after his death.

24- A woman inherits half what a man inherits.

25- A man has the right to have up to 4 wives and she has no right to divorce him even if he is polygamous.

26- The dowry is given in exchange for the woman’s sexual organs.

27- A man is allowed to have sex with slave women and women captured in battle, and if the enslaved woman is married her marriage is annulled.

28- The testimony of a woman in court is half the value of a man.

29- A woman looses custody if she remarries.

30- To prove rape, a woman must have 4 male witnesses.

31- A rapist may only be required to pay the bride-money (dowry) without marrying the rape victim.

32- A Muslim woman must cover every inch of her body which is considered “Awrah,” a sexual organ. Some schools of Sharia allow the face and some don’t.

33- A Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife caught in the act of adultery. However, the opposite is not true for women since he “could be married to the woman he was caught with.”
The above are clear cut laws in Islam decided by great Imams after years of examination and interpretation of the Quran, Hadith and Mohammed’s life.

Good news for Ukraine and the world

Here's what the shootdown of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 means: Russia, with Vladimir Putin at the wheel, just drove off the edge of a cliff. The moment Flight 17 exploded was the moment that Putin's foreign policy officially went over the ledge, and with it his dreams of restored Russian greatness.

Could Obama Be a Plant of the KGB and the Muslim Brotherhood?

I’ll tell you the damnedest story you ever heard.
—Senator Raymond Clark (played by Edmond O’Brien), Seven Days in May (1964)

The Soviet Union began a dedicated espionage operation into the United States in the 1920s. This was detailed by Whittaker Chambers in Witness. The biggest fish among the caught spies was Alger Hiss, who practically wrote the original U.N. charter which handed Eastern Europe to the tender mercies of Joseph Stalin.

The Soviets targeted the government, academia, public schools, Hollywood, the Civil Rights Movement, and anti-war protests. They had enormous success. After the fall of the U.S.S.R, the Venona Project revealed that the so-called “witch hunts” of McCarthyism were in fact real and actual. The Soviets had little success infiltrating the military and no success with the Republicans. On the other hand, many top officials in President Franklin Roosevelt’s administration were paid Soviet spies. While all liberals were not Communists, all Communist spies were liberals. “Republican Nazis” could not be identified, since none walked around on Earth.

McCarthyism, Vietnam, and the Iraq War have revealed a terrible truth. There was a time in which the KGB needed to pay, coerce, blackmail, and recruit by hook and crook, Communist spies. Today, there are a large number of American citizens, all of whom have found a welcome home in the Democratic Party, who no longer need to be identified and recruited by enemies of the United States. Instead, of their own free will, these people choose as their politics what once was treachery. Activities that landed “Red Emma” Goldman, Ezra Pound and Tokyo Rose in prison now land them on the cover of Vanity Fair . . . or in high office!

This leaves us with the discomfiting notion that the Communists have actually won. The predictions of V.I. Lenin and Mao Tse-tung seem perilously close to have come true. No longer do their adherents carry hammers and sickles, or read Little Red Books. Their religion is global warming, gay marriage, race extortion, feminism, abortion, and social justice.

They look like you and me, just as one imagines the anti-Christ does. It is beyond subversion, it is insidious, malevolent, and utterly evil. It hides in plain sight, and few seem righteous enough to see what is in front of their faces.

Hollywood, oddly enough, seems to advertise some form of this better than the conservatives, who were so full of hubris after President Ronald Reagan won the Cold War that they failed to see the enemy shed their old uniforms in favor of college professorships, media knighthoods, and a brainwashing of our children worthy of the Hitler Youth.

In the waning years of the Cold War, Kevin Costner’s first big star turn was as a Navy hero in No Way Out who, as it turns out, was a Soviet plant known as Yuri, raised in the U.S. and tasked with rising to high political influence in service of Communism.

In recent years, two cable TV shows, Homeland and The Americans, have featured enemies buried within our system, plants and moles working to destroy us until the day arrives when we are vulnerable enough to have our way of life taken away. This does not entail blowing up our cities, but rather to maintain our infrastructure so that our enemies can take over all our most precious institutions.

The Venona Project revealed that these operations were very real and insidious, but the Left has so successfully turned McCarthyism into a pejorative that to suggest such a thing continues to this day is rendered laughable . . . if only it were not so real and actually happening to us today. Meanwhile, we are like the lobster thrown into a pot, slowly losing consciousness as the pot boils until we are helpless to save ourselves.

End game: the left, illegal immigration, and the ongoing coup

From Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom via Doug Ross Journal
Update:
If you agree with any of what of written, or at least think the subject is worth some serious discussion on the right and that I’m worthy of being a part of that discussion, I urge you to go ahead and share or RT this. I’m always happy to answer questions — too happy, some would argue, which is why they find it easier to ignore me than to engage me, I guess. But since linking is now a networking thing alone, and I’m out of the preferred network, backdoor, grass-roots attention is my only means of communication to a potentially new audience.

The downing of MH17 should have serious consequences, but probably won’t

John Hinderacker, one of the lawyers who blogs at Power Line, makes a couple of observations:
First, the responsible parties were pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine. Their reckless incompetence was staggering. They didn’t mean to shoot down a commercial airliner; they did it by mistake. In the transcripts of their cell phone conversations that have been made public, they sound like morons. And yet they had access to a sophisticated surface to air missile, capable of seeking out and destroying an airplane six miles high. . .
and
Second, it is remarkable that within a matter of hours if not minutes after the event, the Ukrainian government was able to release tapes of the rebels’ telephone conversations. Who knew that Ukraine had this sort of capability? Or maybe it wasn’t Ukraine at all, but the NSA that was listening to the pro-Russian separatists, and gave the recordings to the authorities in Kiev. . .

The exact methods, including manufactured war propaganda, that are being used to deceive the West about Israel - UPDATE [PICTURES ADDED]

This is all consistent with Islamic Warfare.  The use of Taqiyya, i.e., Islamic Deceit, (Muhammad said "War is Deceit") and manufactured War Propaganda are part of Islam and have been since the time of Muhammad.

UPDATE: Sorry, I have just now added the pictures BELOW for examples of the photos being used.

Beware, most of them are graphic.

Are we there yet?

Excerpt from The Woodpile Report via Doug Ross Journal:

Are we there yet?

Imagine everything familiar collapsing like an accordion in the time between your morning coffee and your first midday yawn. It may happen just that way. In fact, it's difficult to see how it can happen any other way.
Back in 2001, the Argentine economy all but collapsed. In a matter of days, the country went from mild recession to full-blown economic crisis. The currency went into freefall. Police were out in the streets shooting protestors. Unemployment and crime rates soared overnight. And the nation defaulted on its debt.
Simon Black at sovereignman.com, July 10, 2014
It's said we're in hard times, and we are in hard times. But as hard times go, these are the good days. There are those who have known real-and-for-true hard times. Not the poverty porn hawked around by social activists or the tiresome stories peddled in the movies. Actual hard times are ahead, not hard times by comparison but long term destitution with real privation, when we'll fear a lot more than fear itself.

Ahead, stretching to the horizon, lies deepest 1932 but without the civility and yes, without the relative plenty. The Great Depression will be something to aspire to, where even migrant field hands drove cars to work. Actually it doesn't all lie ahead, some of it is already behind us. Truth is, we arrived a while back. We're like the Okies in that first month without a good rain, or the laid off employee who thought he was between jobs. The era of hustle and opportunity that lifted all boats ended a long while ago. We've fallen below the event horizon. Gravity is in charge now. We've entered an era of relentlessly deepening want. In not much time it will beggar belief, then plunge directly to the heart of catastrophe. You'll never again use the word hungry as lightly as you do now.

You needn't fear the Mad Max scenario 'though, not for long, there'll not be the wherewithal to support it. Nor should you fear DC overmuch, other than rogue Free Corps and last ditchers and everyone taking control of everything and arresting each other. It will remain an obnoxious meddler at the outset and a while longer, but it'll be mostly habit. DC's broke. In fact, it's broker than you are. Meddling gets prohibitively expensive absent voluntary compliance. We've already seen DC metastasize from a dignified bribery and extortion racket with a credible claim to utility into smash-and-grab street thuggery. But more importantly, DC has become exclusively self-referential, a dead short in the circuitry, irrelevant to the problems at hand other than as an extravagant consumer of wattage.

The Tenth Amendment movement looks more dynamic every day, in fact, they're already preparing Uncle Sam's commitment papers in the back room. He doesn't like it one bit. Too bad. We've had a family meeting and that's the way it has to be. You see, not only is our formerly beloved Uncle paying his bills with counterfeit trolley tokens and IOUs, and not only does he get violent just because he can, he's getting, well—bizarre. When we're on the phone, he listens in, then says he didn't. And he insists we expose ourselves to him as a condition of travel. Stuff like that art-link-symbol-tiny-grey-arrow-only-rev01.gif. The senile demand attention in, you know, odd ways. Our descendents will wonder why we ever took him seriously but we remember him in his youth, when he was a quirky but okay guy.

What you should really fear is scarcity. It's unAmerican to say this, but what you have is all you're likely to have and chances are you won't keep all of that. So, are you planning a mountain retreat with a well and a hand pump, more than a tank of gas from the nearest urban center, away from lines of drift, solar powered hot tub with optional foot massage? If you're not there now, or nearly so, you're not going to get there. In other words, time's up. Get your affairs in order where you are, because where you are is where you're going to be. And what you have is what you're going to have.

Societies are normally this badly wounded coming out of catastrophes, not entering them. Which means we're in no condition for what's coming, and what's coming is something not seen since feudal times. Everything's on the table including civilization itself. We've run out of good outcomes. There isn't even a name for what's coming. So far we've only seen the water trickling between the sandbags. Even so, the alarms have been notable, full of entertaining nuance and learned anecdotes about Medieval Venice and such. We've had the time for it. There'll be no time for nuance when it all unzips. It'll be a fire-hose in the face. Events won't so much occur as uncork that which has already occurred.

The financial sector has reached the suburbs of self-parody. 'Bmoreland' at Zero Hedge comments: "it takes holding $50,000 in a Wells Fargo High Yield Checking Account for 1 year to generate the $15 necessary to handle one Incoming Domestic Wire Transfer. Yes, that's Incoming Wire Transfer, what used to be free at 95% of the banks a decade ago." When deposits are a liability for both banker and depositor it's plain we've been "crashing upward" long enough. With nothing to keep it aloft it's visibly stalling. Dire warnings are arriving closer together. Here are samples from recent days:
So just maybe the Fed fully intends on heeding the advice of the BIS [Bank for International Settlements], and is strategically positioning itself as a stalwart dove to shield itself from the public fallout of it’s orchestrated financial calamity. A particularly sound play from a political perspective in the event that things don’t go as smoothly as planned. One thing is certain at this point: An intentionally orchestrated crash is the direct recommendation of the BIS, per it’s annual report. That this action exists as a potential policy measure is now confirmed. The remaining question is: Would the Federal Reserve pursue such a policy measure openly, or behind the same curtains from which most of their historic policies were enacted

and, about the market:
We are now at heights where even the so-called “Uber Bulls” are beginning to get a little nervous in the hoof. For just who is going to buy when the first major dip goes stampeding past? There are no shorts to speak of at these levels... These prices are only representative of anything worth value if they can be sold.

FOMC Minutes Show Fed Fears Investors Are Too Complacent; QE To End In October
Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com, July 9, 2014
and, about banks:
Germany's cabinet Wednesday approved plans to force creditors into propping up struggling banks beginning in 2015, one year earlier than required under European-wide plans that set rules for failing financial institutions... "This ensures that in times of crisis mainly owners and creditors will contribute to solving the crisis, and not taxpayers."
Andrea Thomas at marketwatch.com, July 9, 2014
Note: this appears to be the infamous "bail-in" where depositor's accounts are "recognized" as "shares" in a bankrupt bank. Add the risk of confiscation to the next-to-zero interest rate now, and a negative interest rate soon, where direct taxation of deposits is automatically deducted. And note well, Spain's trial bail-in is retroactive to the first of the year. The mother of all bank runs could be in the making from this alone.
Karl Denninger at Market Ticker summarizes the Fed's dilemma plainly:
In the last quarter for which we have data the net economic impact including QE, which totaled about $250 billion during that time, was a negative $500 billion... The Fed has maintained repeatedly that QE "helps the economy." The facts say it does no such thing; gross economic output trends downward to flat when QE has been in process, and net-net economic progress is negative. They lied. What QE did was boost asset prices—but not economic activity.
Karl Denninger at market-ticker.org, July 10, 2014 
The Fed is pulling QE because it doesn't work, exactly as I pointed out it would not because arithmetic doesn't allow it to (and which the Japanese discovered over a decade ago) and laddered fixed-income segments in the market are being progressively destroyed by it.
Karl Denninger at market-ticker.org, July 12, 2014
Charles Smith at Of Two Minds says reform hasn't worked, probably can't work, and offers his bottom line:
People constantly ask me for solutions to our all-too visible ills. You want solutions? Here's the solution for every systemic, structural problem we face: Avoid getting hurt when it collapses, then start over.
Charles Smith at charleshughsmith.blogspot.com, July 13, 2014
Every bank's liabilities are on every other bank's books as credit or collateral, except massively more bloated with years of leveraging and rehypothecatation. The BIS is warning the Fed to back away and the Fed is backing away. We're about done stair-stepping into the night. A colossal collateral meltdown is looming. This time it won't merely take down a Lehman or two, it may take down whole nations.

Big Money knows it. They'll act with blinding speed in the final feeding frenzy, anxious to cage prize morsels before decamping to their redoubts for brandy and cigars. This is what all the positioning is about. They're maneuvering, rigging this and nudging that to get just the right deflection, always careful not to snag a tripwire prematurely, but knowing someone will blunder eventually. When they do you'll need an egg-timer at most. The alert and realistic observer—also known as a tinfoil hat alarmist—sees the maneuvering and what it points to.

You may think it comforting we're all in this together. We're not all in this together. While you've been stockpiling essentials and planting thorny bushes outside your windows and putting away heritage seeds, the upper percentiles have figured out they don't need to be clever to survive, they just need to be somewhere else. Surely you've noticed sellers of big boats and Peruvian realty are affluent America's new best friends. And how they've been keeping company with vendors of portable wealth.

You and yours, and those trusted few with whom you can ally, will be on your own. America isn't the Apple Blossom Valley of the past where communities looked out for one another and left a picnic ham on the porch of those in need. No, this time your odds are millions to one. Against. For those who think there's safety in numbers, you're wrong. As has been said here many times: get away and stay away from crowds. Most are created by opportunists calculating an advantage at your expense, the rest are outright vermin. When it all goes sour, and it will, they'll cash in your well being to save their own. Control over your own life passes into the hands of others when you find yourself in a crowd. The crowd's fate becomes your fate.

You may believe being a productive and honest citizen is an asset. It isn't. If you listen carefully you'll hear yourself being positioned as an enemy of all that is good and wholesome. For instance, if you oppose the regime's serial squandering and—gasp! are a veteran—you're an incipient terrorist. If you criticize Obama by name you're a crypto-racist. If you're a boomer you wantonly plundered the nation's future for your own squalid gain. If you take responsibility for your own life and expect the same from others, especially if you seriously prepare for hard times, you're an anti-social loner nursing dark thoughts of mass violence. It's a setup.
These lone wolves. These homegrown violent extremists are people who keep me up at night, as well. Trying to monitor them, trying to anticipate what it is they are going to do. And the experience that we had in Boston is instructive. It only takes only one or two people to really do something horrific.
Attorney General Holder via Daniel Halper at weeklystandard.com
Wherever the TSA or the Department of Education struts its stuff even toddlers are a security risk for which they have "zero tolerance". Being a kid is the new entry-level crime. Nobody escapes. Creating criminals is not only fun, it's profitable. Notice the Soviets vilified the wealthy, not the workers and peasants. Also notice the untermenchen of the Third Reich had confiscatible wealth. The SS was not only self-supporting, it returned a profit. Even slave labor wasn't free, it was rented out. Wholesale, systematic wealth confiscation, not wealth creation, is the universal model for political economies.

All any regime requires is a continuing supply of crimes that can be neither understood or avoided. Think of Political Correctness as the field-testing and conditioning phase and it all makes sense. Notice how the civil rights movement went from sunny sing alongs to one-way prosecutable offenses in less than a generation. Notice who's terrified of getting tangled in some trivial, unintended but ruinous offense. Hint: it isn't The Diversity.

These are good times for the crime-fighting trade. Thanks to asset forfeiture, the militarization of civilian police and other outrages, there are plenty of resources to use for a police state. Those well-publicized SWAT debacles rattle dissenters like direct threats never could art-link-symbol-tiny-grey-arrow-only-rev01.gif, and they normalize random violence for the troops. Mainly, they display the new order at street-level in a wartime occupation sort of way.

These are nice side benefits, but law enforcement is a business, and like any other business it has to pay its way. If you're a solid citizen with something to lose, watch out. It's unlikely their financial files on The Dependency see much use. You, however, interest them. Maybe it helps to know there's little new in all this. When Sherman marched through Georgia, well beyond his supply lines, he took the census and tax roles with him as ready-made shopping lists.

Perhaps you believe this time it will be different, that the safety nets put in place since the Great Depression will be there for you. They won't be. The safety nets are overflowing with professional voters and have been from the first day. They're part of the boondoggle bankrupting us in the first place. As any first-aider knows, first stop the bleeding. That would be you. The rhetoric will say otherwise, but you'll be amputated like gangrene.

There's a tsunami arriving. If you paid attention to those who saw things clearly and warned you plainly for all of your adult life, if you recalibrated your expectations and took charge of your own destiny, good for you. This calamity won't last forever, quite, but it will bring low those it doesn't maim or destroy. There won't be any bystanders. The prudent and prepared may make it, some of them, maybe even most of them. Lord help the rest. Nobody else will.
