Muslim Day Parade

On Sunday the 29th Annual Muslim Day Parade slithered up Madison Avenue, featuring an NYPD marching band, girl scouts from New Jersey, and all manner of pro-Islamic floats, including this one:


Evidently this particular float was intended to support Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood friends. You’ll know they have taken full control when you see real women hanging instead of mannequins.

Islamic State: Brought to You by Our Democrat Administration


As if this isn’t bad enough…

As he was being released from an American detention camp in Iraq in 2009, the man who will go on to head the powerful ISIS group issued a menacing warning to his former captors.

‘I’ll see you guys in New York,’ Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly told U.S. Army reservists from Long Island who had been guarding him at Camp Bucca near the Kuwaiti border.

…and this

[I]n the decade since the 2003 US-led Iraq invasion, the US has spent a fortune training and arming the Iraqi army in the hopes of readying it to secure the country once America left. That meant arming the Iraqi army with high-tech and extremely expensive American-made guns, tanks, jeeps, artillery, and more.

[…After Obama prematurely withdrew our troops,] ISIS invaded northern Iraq from Syria in June, the Iraqi forces deserted or retreated en masse. Many of them abandoned their American equipment. ISIS scooped it up themselves and are now using it to rampage across Iraq, seizing whole cities, terrorizing minorities, and finally pushing into even once-secure Kurdish territory. All with shiny American military equipment.

…and this

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Sunday that the Sunni militants taking over Iraq have quickly gained power because the United States armed their allies in Syria.

“I think we have to understand first how we got here,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think one of the reasons why ISIS has been emboldened is because we have been arming their allies. We have been allied with ISIS in Syria.”

…and this

Syrian rebels who would later join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials.

…there’s also this:

The Obama administration says it will seek $500 million from Congress to help “train and equip appropriately vetted elements of the moderate Syrian armed opposition,” funding that, if approved, would deepen U.S. involvement in that country’s civil war.

National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden announced on Thursday that the administration would seek the money that she said would build on “longstanding efforts” by the United States “to empower the moderate Syrian opposition.”

The Syrian opposition is exactly what spawned ISIS.

If these are mistakes, why do Obama et al. keep making them?

Scanning Fingerprints to Regulate Children’s Diets

At least the next generation shouldn’t have a hard time adapting to a totalitarian future. For public school students, it may be all they have ever known:

Pupils will have their fingerprints taken at their £20,000 high-tech new school canteen in a bid to reduce queues and monitor pupils’ diets.

Redhill School in Stourbridge will bring in the controversial technology as part of a plan to implement a cashless system throughout the school.

The system requires pupils to press a finger against a machine which converts the print into biometric data.

This can then be used to identify individual pupils accounts.

According to Headteacher Stephen Dunster, in addition to allowing parents to pay for kids’ lunches over the Internet,

“We will also be able to monitor what children are buying to make sure they are eating a healthy diet.”

At least the Mark of the Beast won’t be needed, since fingerprints can be used in its place.

Closer to home,

Washington’s Puyallup School District spent $38,695 on devices that would map the veins in a student’s palm, and then use that data as a school lunch account identifier.

District employees claimed “human error and fraud” necessitated the palm scanners.

The school had to pull the plug on this one because of parent backlash. Parents will have to keep pushing back if they don’t want similar programs imposed in the future.

Last year, a group of New York engineers announced the development of a “biometric classroom.”

According to developers at SensorStar Labs, cameras that track students’ eye movements, conversations and even smiles will supposedly help teachers improve classroom learning.

Because telescreens are so 1984.

Before long the idea of anything whatsoever not being the government’s business will be totally alien to people who grew up under the Nanny State on either side of the Atlantic.

The Mark of the Beast is right at our fingertips.

Islamic State Is the Essence of Islam

Smelling weakness, the Muslim world has been increasingly aggressive in confronting the hated West. Participating in the violence is the duty of Muslims who take their religion seriously.

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

This is why Muslims have been arriving from all over the world to help the Islamic State impose hell on earth. One example is the 21-year-old “British” medical student seen here posing with a severed head in Syria:


The picture was originally on Twitter…

In the picture, which has since been taken down from the site, she can be seen in her white medical coat and full burka clearly holding up the head as children look on in the background. She wrote alongside the image, “Dream job, terrorist doc,” followed by love hearts and [smiley] faces.

The Daily Mail reports that the woman goes by the name Mujahidah Bint Usama, a jihadist pseudonym, with ‘Mujahidah’ meaning ‘female soldier of God’, bint translating as ‘child of’, and Usama most likely a reference to Osama bin Laden.

Her Twitter account has now been suspended, but it previously had over 800 followers. She used it to tweet images of the 9/11 attacks and dead soldiers, along with more mundane, practical information on how to treat insomnia and an injured knee.

In her description of herself she wrote: “Running away from Jihād will not save you from death. You can die as a coward or you can die as a martyr.”

Let’s hope Barack Obama and David Cameron are listening. Both of them have been clinging to the absurd and contemptibly cowardly lie that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. No wonder the West’s ancient enemy has been growing so bold.

Obama Sending 3,000 US Troops Into Ebola Zone

Never let a crisis go to waste, the Obamunists say — especially not a potentially major crisis like Ebola. How best to exploit it to achieve Obamunist objectives when it is for the most part limited to an African backwater where neither the USA nor anyone else has any strategic interest? Simple: send thousands of US troops into the middle of the epidemic.

The United States government is sending thousands of military troops to the west African nation of Liberia as part of the Obama administration’s Ebola virus-response strategy, the White House said late Monday night.

‘U.S. Africa Command will set up a Joint Force Command headquartered in Monrovia, Liberia, to provide regional command and control support to U.S. military activities and facilitate coordination with U.S. government and international relief efforts,’ a statement from the White House press office said.

‘A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.’

How exactly are soldiers expected to combat a virus?

Some of what America’s armed personnel will do in Liberia is unclear. The White House said ‘many’ of them will be stationed at an ‘intermediate staging base’ where they will supervise the movement of medical staff, supplies and heavy equipment.

They need 3,000 troops to supervise moving some stuff, but only a total of 1,600 to deal with the Islamic State. Evidently no troops at all are needed to prevent the southern border from being overrun.

Why not let Africans do whatever it is the troops will really be doing? Maybe Africans don’t want to contract the deadly disease, and like the United States Africa Command have a policy of staying away.

AFRICOM already warns its own personnel that they should ‘avoid nonessential travel to Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia.’

Given that virtually everything Obama does regarding the military appears to be explicitly intended to destroy morale, this could be a stroke of genius. After pacifying Iraq at the cost of thousands of American lives, Obama turned it over to the terrorists, who are now staging public executions of US citizens. Now instead of fighting the terrorists to reclaim a critically important region, the troops are sent to fight a virus in a hellhole of no strategic value whatsoever.

There is good reason West Africa used to be known as the White Man’s Graveyard. There is no better place to contract a terrible disease. Prior to the discovery of quinine, Europeans could hardly set foot in sub-Saharan Africa without dying of malaria. Now Ebola will do the killing.

It won’t only kill our troops. Disease is fought with doctors and scientists, not soldiers. But soldiers are well suited to bring the disease over to the USA.

Degrading the morale of American troops may not be the only objective. By election time, we could be looking at a headline like this on Drudge:


Or maybe despite his radical anti-American background Obama means well, but just happens to always do the worst thing he can possibly get away with without triggering a revolution just through sheer incompetence. It’s still possible.

Profiles in Authoritarian Moonbat Hypocrisy: Liam Neeson

Former CNN apparatchik Piers Morgan isn’t the only visitor from the British Isles to noisily oppose our constitutional right to bear arms. There is also Irish actor Liam Neeson, who barks:

“I am totally for gun control in the U.S. The population of America is roughly 300 million and there are 300 million guns in this country, which is terrifying. Every day we’re seeing some kid running rampant in a school. And do you know what the gun lobby’s response to Newtown was? The National Rifle Association’s official response was, ‘If that teacher had been armed…’ It’s crazy.

“I’ll give Britain its dues, when they had the Dunblane massacre in Scotland, within 24 hours the gun laws were changed so you could not have a handgun… It is the right to bear arms which is the problem. I think if the Founding Fathers knew what was happening they would be turning in their graves with embarrassment at how that law has been interpreted.”

Incredible. A foreigner who makes pretend for a living has managed to divine the intent of the Founding Fathers where constitutional scholars have failed, recognizing that they didn’t really mean all that stuff about “the people’s liberty’s teeth” or the Second Amendment either, and actually wanted us helplessly at the mercy of criminals and the State.

Speaking of what Neeson does for a living, here are a few shots of him earning his fortune:






There are plenty more where these came from.

Neeson may turn out to be one of the very people we need guns to defend ourselves against. Indulging fully in the malign flakiness that characterizes the entertainment industry, he has considered converting to Islam:

The Irish actor admitted to the U.K.’s Sun newspaper that he is considering giving up his Catholic beliefs in order to become a Muslim.

Neeson, 59, went on to explain that Islamic prayer “got into his spirit” when he spent time in the Turkish city working on the action-thriller “Taken 2.”

“The call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing,” he told the newspaper.

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

“[The Islamic call to prayer is] one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”
—Barack Hussein Obama

Becoming a Muslim would oblige Neeson to travel to Syria to fight for the Islamic State, as thousands of “European” Muslims have been doing. If that would interfere with his acting schedule, he might chose instead to shoot a few innocent Americans on behalf of Allah, like Ali Muhammad Brown.

ISIS Creates Islamic Utopia in Raqqa

Liberals had their chance to create utopia. They gave the world Detroit. Now the Islamic State provides Muslims with their chance. They have given the world Raqqa, Syria:

Raqqa, on the north bank of the Euphrates, is the headquarters of IS and base to leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. …

In the months since IS militants imposed Sharia law, thieves have had their hands hacked off and opponents have been crucified or beheaded. Music has been banned.

Smoking is now forbidden, women must wear the full veil and there have been reports of people being stoned to death.

Even goats have had their genitals covered. It is said that if you are on the streets at prayer time, you risk your life.

One resident said: “They banned the sale of alcohol, they tried to close cafes where boys and girls sit together, they banned street theatre, cinema, bright colours and forced women to wear Islamic dress.” …

Shia mosques and Christian churches have been attacked and destroyed by the Sunni militants. Shops, their shutters emblazoned with the IS logo, are closed five times a day for prayer, and religious police prowl.

Covering goat genitalia is a wise move. Not even the Islamic State wants to see more of this:

Ali Muhammad Brown: Another Soldier for Allah Kills Americans on American Soil

Islam isn’t some distant menace that threatens our future only if we can’t eventually persuade the government to justify its existence by defending the border. Already people are being killed in the name of Islam on American soil explicitly for being American. Since admitting it doesn’t fit the liberal narrative, if you want to learn about it you might have to resort to local media:

A man accused of shooting to death two men in Seattle on June 1 and a man in New Jersey later that month was charged Wednesday with gunning down a 30-year-old in the Skyway area in April — all, he allegedly told police, as “vengeance” for U.S. actions in the Mideast.

Ali Muhammad Brown, 40, is quoted in charging documents as saying that he they were “just kills” and that he was “just doing my small part” as a self-styled jihadist.

He was charged Wednesday with aggravated first-degree murder by the King County Prosecutor’s Office for the slaying of Leroy Henderson, 30 in the unincorporated King County area of Skyway on the night of April 27.

Ali Muhammad Brown’s other victims include Brendan Tevlin:

Brendan Tevlin was a 19-year old from New Jersey who had just finished his freshman year at the University of Richmond. Like many kids his age, he played sports and video games. He also liked to surf. Brendan also played the bagpipes and was a Eucharistic minister at his church. But none of those things led to his tragic death. What led to Brendan’s death is that he was an American.

For this he was killed, so as to please Allah. Not that this has anything to do with Islam, of course. Islam is the Religion of Peace.

At least Fox News has acknowledged Tevlin’s death.

Safe Snacks

The lunacy at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic School in Hamilton, Ontario, where milk, cheese, and eggs have been banned, is not an isolated incident. Parents are enraged over a “safe snack” list imposed at the Sandy Run Middle School in Maple Glen, Pennsylvania:

Pupil Services Director Michelle Clegg denied accusations that it was a reaction to a lawsuit by the parents of a student with allergies, stating the safe foods program was “not focused on one student or small group, but on all students.”

Of course. The authorities only want what’s best for all of us.

“Legal liability is a secondary consideration. Safety is first,” district Solicitor Ken Roos said, adding, “It would not be legally responsible to go back to having unregulated food in the classroom.”

What would happen to the country if we went back to unregulated anything? Surely total doom would follow.

Eight foods account for 90 percent of allergic reactions: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish, with a reaction ranging from mild to a severe potentially dangerous anaphylaxis reaction, administrators said in a Sept. 7 blast email.

How long would you want to go without eating any of those eight foods?

At least students are allowed to snack on fruits and vegetables. If they don’t like it, Clegg has an alternative:

“The alternative is no snacks.”

That’s where we will be soon after the next kid chokes on a celery stick.

Future historians will gasp in horror when they discover that once America was so under-regulated that children were allowed to consume snacks.

Cameron Echoes Obama’s Absurd and Cowardly “Islamic State Is Not Islamic” Lie

Unlike Obama, David Cameron was at least sufficiently responsible to cut short his vacation to deal with execution spectacles staged by the Islam State. But just like Obama, he doesn’t appear to have enough character even to admit that the Islamic State is Islamic:

Americans have been rightly impressed by the “amazing contrast” between the statements on the ISIS threat delivered by President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron. While Cameron has been much more forthright on the threat posed by Islamic extremists, he too has been careful to distinguish between “Islam” and “extremism.”

President Obama confounded and outraged many in his speech to the nation Wednesday by declaring that “ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’” Prime Minister Cameron [yesterday], in a statement on the beheading of David Haines, echoed Obama by declaring that ISIS “claim to do this in the name of Islam. That is nonsense. Islam is a religion of peace. They are not Muslims. They are monsters.”

History has shown again and again for centuries on end that the statement “They are not Muslims. They are monsters” is patently absurd. They are monsters because they are Muslims. Islam is monstrous and always has been. We are beyond the point that this increasingly obvious fact can be kept from even the most oblivious public.

Try to imagine Winston Churchill responding to the Blitz by claiming that Luftwaffe bomber pilots were not Nazis but monsters.

Meanwhile, the population of Muslim colonists in Britain has doubled in the past 10 years, largely explaining Cameron’s pusillanimity.

If Britons won’t stand up to Muslims when they make up 4.8% of the population, there will be very little hope when their explosive welfare-financed reproduction rate combined with liberal immigration policy eventually makes Muslims the majority.

No one who doesn’t have the guts to look his enemy in the eye is going to prevail. If we can’t produce better leadership than Obama and Cameron, we had better learn to like the idea that five times a day our grandchildren will grind their faces on the floor in obeisance to a Satanic moon god from the sixth century.

California Extends Bureaucratic Control in the Bedroom

Remember when liberals used to bark about wanting government out of the bedroom? Now that they are consolidating total control of government, they don’t want it out of anywhere:

The California state senate unanimously approved a bill … that defines when “yes” means “yes” to sex.

Instead of “no means no” – the phrase commonly associated with sexual assault prevention – the law would require “affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement” by each party to engage in sexual activity. If Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signs the bill into law – he has until the end of September – colleges and universities would have to adopt the so-called affirmative consent standard to continue receiving state funds for student financial aid.

Yet again we see that anyone who takes a penny of other people’s money from Big Government is beholden to Big Government. There is no free lunch.

Under the proposed standard, the fact that a person didn’t say “no” is no defense in a campus sexual assault investigation.

In addition to consenting up front, the bill requires affirmative consent to be “ongoing throughout the sexual activity,” meaning that sexual partners must agree to each step of a sexual encounter as it progresses and consent can be revoked at any time. The standard would apply to all sexual encounters regardless of whether the parties are having a one-night stand or are in a long-term relationship.

From across the country, the powerful New York Times has been egging on Governor Moonbeam to sign SB-967, which I’m sure he will, although as CNN points out,

Even if Brown vetoes the legislation, consent will still be defined on the University of California’s 10 campuses as an “affirmative, unambiguous, and conscious decision by each participant to engage in mutually agreed-upon sexual activity.”

The protocol for establishing this decision must be followed in accordance with official regulations. To prove that these regulations have been properly complied with will require videotaping all sexual encounters. How romantic.

Can we call it totalitarianism yet?

The Obamas’ Tasteless 9/11 Photo Op

Q: What could be in worse taste than the First Lady of the USA wearing this in public?


A: Wearing it to an event like this to commemorate 9/11:

In what could be the worst way to remember the horrific tragedy of 9/11/01, the Obamas volunteered at a charity entitled ”KaBoom.”

Michelle Obama tweeted out a photo of her and the president helping stuff backpacks for “KaBoom,” an organization that “works to bring balanced and active play into the daily lives of all children, particularly those growing up in poverty in America.”

Volunteering at a charity is wonderful, even if as TPNN points out, “many fail to see how that commemorates the day in any capacity that helps us never forget.” But a charity called KaBoom? Either Obama does not have a single advisor who isn’t politically tone deaf, or he has a twisted sense of humor and has spat on our country once again.

Ventura High School Bans Chick-fil-A

Although progressives seize power by increments, they will never be satisfied with less than everything. For them, it isn’t enough to thoroughly dominate the culture; they have to completely eradicate anything that even reminds them of opposition.

Chick-fil-A is owned by Christians. It came out in an interview with a religious publication that president Dan Cathy believes, like virtually everyone did until a couple of years ago, that marriage is between a man and a woman. Consequently, Chick-fil-A is politically incorrect and must be banned:

Feathers have been ruffled at California’s Ventura High School, where the principal this week banned the football booster club from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches over fears that people might be offended.

What, pray tell, could people find offensive about a plump juicy chicken breast tucked between two buttered buns?

Here’s what:

“With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus,” [Principal Val] Wyatt told the Ventura County Star.

It was a sentiment supported by Trudy Tuttle Ariaga, superintendent of the Ventura Unified School District.

“We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus, and all our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission,” Ariaga told CBS News in Los Angeles.

Evidently their mission is to intolerantly exclude anything deemed not to be in total compliance with liberal dogma — in the name of tolerance and inclusivity, of course.

It’s the students who will pay for educrats’ intolerance and ingratitude:

The local Chick-fil-A franchise has a storied history of supporting the school district – to the tune of thousands of dollars – and owner Robert Shaffer had generously offered to give the booster club 200 meals for a “back-to-school” event on Wednesday at which they expected to raise $1,600 for the football team, the Ventura Star reported.

“That would have gone toward the football program, everything from uniforms to food for the boys,” booster club president Dan Swim told the Star.

Chick-fil-A has no official stand on homosexual “marriage,” and has gone out of its way to avoid controversy. But two years ago, Cathy committed the thought crime of saying this:

“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

Imagine a society in which a statement like that is completely beyond the pale. So far as I know, there have only been three: Sodom, Gomorrah, and the liberal-ruled USSA.

Not to be tolerated by the militantly tolerant.

ESPN Commentator Calls for “Reprogramming” Men

Progressives were able to impose their sick ideology on a previously healthy society by making a long march through the institutions so as to capture the cultural high ground. They infiltrated the influential pillars of the establishment and eventually took them over, driving out most everyone who would resist their agenda. It happened to the news media, to Hollywood, to education, to the federal bureaucracy. Given that so many focus their attention obsessively on sports, it is unsurprising that progressives have strategically taken over the sports media too.

Typically, NBC is the most over the top, featuring the obnoxious left-wing twerps Keith Olbermann and Bob Costas. But ESPN is catching up fast with mouthpieces like Kate Fagan. Here is how she exploited the story of Ray Rice punching his girlfriend to call for “reprogramming” men not to be so masculine:

“This is behavior that is happening at the grassroots level that is born through years of our culture like raising men to want to not be like women and using language like ‘sissy’ and ‘you throw like a girl’ that demean women. These are all contributing factors and I think if we want to hold the NFL’s feet to the fire over this issue, we shouldn’t be looking at the number of game suspensions because I don’t really think that’s going to change the problem. I think holding NFL’s feet to the fire should mean getting them to throw the kitchen sink at domestic violence, to invest millions of dollars in grassroots organizations in going into middle schools and high schools and colleges, and talking to young men about dealing with anger, about how they treat women. I think that’s where you’re going to see change. I think that right now all of this reactive behavior is not going to change it, as much as going in and going into the school systems and the younger spaces and really reprogramming how we raise men.”

Spoken like a true cultural Marxist social engineer. Note that in keeping with liberal ideology, no individual is ever responsible; it is always society’s fault, so society must be changed to bring it into tighter compliance with liberalism.

What makes the moonbattery spewed on ESPN so insidious is that people do not turn on sports shows expecting to be brainwashed with political ideology, so they don’t put up any mental defenses against it. The poison seeps right in, and becomes part of the culture’s accepted wisdom — or rather, accepted foolishness.

Andrew McCarthy explains why the reflexive leftism of the sports media is important:

If conservatives want to know why we are losing the culture and the country, it is important to understand that while very few kids and young adults are watching Fox News (or news programs of any kind, for that matter), they inhale sports programming. It’s ubiquitous — television, radio, the Internet. And thus equally unavoidable is sports commentary, more and more of which has less and less to do with sports. Tendentious “sports journalists,” the majority of whom are decidedly left of center, are much less guarded about their hostility to conservatives than their fellow progressives on the political beat. It is a hostility that takes for granted the chummy agreement of its viewers and is designed to make Millennials want to be part of the fun. …

Conservatives complain incessantly, and not without cause, about Republican fecklessness in confronting the Obama Left’s agenda, about the news media’s becoming an adjunct of the White House press office. But Washington’s political arena is just where the score is tallied. The game is being played, and lost, in the popular culture.

Sports commentators are like movie stars in that no one could possibly take their political views seriously — which is exactly why their political influence is difficult to counter.

Ray Rice’s handiwork is the fault of our insufficiently demasculinized culture.
