    (Watch video at link) The above 6-minute video is a must-see. It offers an up close and personal account of what Christian minorities are experiencing at the hands of jihadis and other Muslim “rebels” being supported in the Mideast by the Obama administration. A Christian family from Iraq narrates how their young children were killed and burned alive, “simply for wearing the cross.” One of the remaining and traumatized children plays with toy figures to show people how his siblings were slaughtered. This family is identical to the other Christian refugees who fled the Islamic State in Iraq and came...

    TWO Muslim brothers who claimed to be Christians to avoid going back to their homeland of Egypt have been denied protection visas. They joined the Hillsong Church, did the “Discovering Christianity” course together and were baptised together as Christians but a tribunal has ruled neither brother is a genuine follower of the faith. They claimed to fear persecution if they returned to Egypt based on their conversion to Christianity but the former Refugee Review Tribunal found they had contrived their embrace of the new religion based on the timing of their applications for protection visas.

In contrast with Republican politicians who want to rein in president Obama’s executive actions on immigration, the governor asked the Obama Administration early last year to use its executive powers to designate 50,000 extra visas to the Detroit metro area for high-skilled immigrants. Citing population loss and the need to jumpstart the Motor City economically ....Snyder—a former CEO for Gateway Computer and head of a venture capitalist firm—called on his state to “embrace immigration.”

Lining up Christians and shooting them in the head is one of their religious rituals. There is much we do not know. We know Harper Mercer’s only male friend was a jihad sympathizer who praised “the brave Mujahideen heroes.” And said, “The Mujahideen freedom fighters of Palestine. My brothers and sisters keep on doing your thing. Allahu Akbar.” [snip]

All of his convictions and actions can be explained by a single supposition. Obama is dedicated to the subversion of Western, in particular White European, Judeo-Christian-based democracy. In the world today, the two strongest forces opposing Western, Judeo-Christian democracy are radical Islam and Marxism in its current manifestations.

    If there are two things that characterize Islamic culture, they are terrorism and inbreeding. The latest research shows that these two things might be closely connected. The concept of Islamic terror does not need any introduction. Not everyone might know, however, that seventy percent of Pakistanis and forty percent of Turks are inbred (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009 “More stillbirths among immigrants”). Research shows that the same goes for close to half of all Arabs (Reproductive Health Journal, 2009 “Consanguinity and reproductive health among Arabs”). First cousin marriages have been the tradition in many Muslim families for innumerable generations. Such marriages increase...

They serve and protect the president from scrutiny, and to smear and demean anyone who might express unflattering opinions based on their day to day observations. Actually exploring how such a question might arise in the first place, and whether there is any possible basis for suggesting that Barack Hussein Obama is not Christian, is a fool’s...

    The media, including “fair-and-balanced” Fox News, have been pummeling Donald Trump for the things he says. Now, he’s being pummeled for things he didn’t say, specifically for not saying that Obama is Christian.Last Thursday (Sept. 17) night at a Trump rally in New Hampshire, a man said: “We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims. We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American — birth certificate, man … We have training camps growing, where they want to kill us. That’s my question. When can we get rid of them?” Trump responded, “This...

    Mayor Beth Van Duyne of Irving, Texas is blaming death threats received by Irving’s police chief, police officers, teachers and school administrators on President Barack Obama for his hasty support before the facts were known. Fourteen-year-old high school freshman Ahmed Mohamed was briefly arrested after bringing a suspicious ‘briefcase clock’ to school last week. Mohamed’s claim to have made the clock himself has been exposed by experts as a hoax. The experts state Mohamed took a manufactured digital alarm clock (a 1986 Radio Shack Micronta brand clock-radio) out of its housing and placed it in a pencil box that made...
  • CAIR Hamas Supporter Offers Ben Carson Free Koran for $9.95

      CAIR continues its humiliating effort to try and get Ben Carson to notice that the unindicted co-conspirator organization exists. This time with a fake free offer of a Koran. It's bad enough that CAIR misrepresents what's in the Koran, you can't even trust them when they offer a free Koran. This is a new low even for an unindicted co-conspirator. We expect this from scams offered in pop-up-ads. Not from reputable Hamas supporters and Muslim Brotherhood front groups. Don't you Jihadists have any dignity? The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced the renewal of its “Share the Quran”...
  • The issue with Ben Carson's Muslim president comments

    There is a subtle problem with Dr. Carson's comment that he wouldn’t support a Muslim for president. I see three issues at work here. 1. Old Islamic law is incompatible with the Constitution. Easily proven: Old Islamic law does not allow for the separation of mosque and state, while our Constitution guarantees that separation. Old Islamic law does not allow for freedom of religion, while our Constitution does. Old Islamic law does not allow for free speech with regard to religion, while our Constitution does. Those three elements prove that this archaic law disqualifies itself for the modern world....

    Let us flip the tables. Let us be fair. Hillary should get the same "gotcha" questions that the GOP candidate get, like the Ben Carson question. Tell us, Hillary: now that you have probably prepped an answer (dodge) already, could you endorse a Muslim to be president? Alas, this will never transpire. There will be no time for questions. Nor will there be no time for debate. Jim Webb and Martin O'Malley will be answers to a trivia question in about 12 months. Hillary, did you see the Planned Parenthood videos? Oh, just parts of some? What would interrupt you?...
  • A Muslim in the White House?

    Given that Islam is a religion advocating 12th century values, it puts itself squarely at odds with the Constitution. And that’s where the real concern about Muslims in the White House is rooted It’s interesting how a theoretical question set off an avalanche of weaseldom from all the usual suspects, as well as a welcome display of principled philosophy on the part of two GOP presidential hopefuls. The first arose with Donald Trump, following his failure to correct a questioner at a town hall meeting who referred to Barack Obama as both non-American as well as Muslim. Trump maintained that...
