    New film highlights rise of Muslim Brotherhood in America

    Canadian imam recently told muslims in Canada that if they were here for a better life, to go back. That the only acceptable reason for Muslims to be in Western nations is to re-establish a caliphate and make Islam the only system.

    OOPS repost – posted it on the wrong open thread!

    By the way, the woman who ‘got sick’ listening to Obama pitch obamacare (he told lie after lie) in the Rose Garden is from right here in San Diego, CA.

    Obama gave out obamacare hotline number for those having issues with

    Twitter lit up with reporters and others who attempted to do so but failed to get through to a navigator as promised. After dialing the number, some callers got a busy signal, others received an automated message, and yet others were referred back to

    In his speech, President Obama said that there was “no excuse” for the problems plaguing the website and assured Americans, “These problems are getting fixed.”

    He also promised we could keep our current plans – LIE!

    He also promised we could keep our current doctor – LIE!

    He also promised we could expect cost reductions – LIE!

    Citing the Obama regime’s political interference in the Zimmerman case, Sowell asks “Is this America”?

    I understand his logic, but he waited this long to ask the question? All the other things Obama did that were anti-American weren’t enough to make him ask it?


    At the top of his radio program today, Sean Hannity called in to an Obamacare call center. Hannity was able to get through to an operator after only several moments of waiting. He spoke to the operator for nearly 10 minutes about Obamacare, what her thoughts of it are and what kind of response she has received so far. The operator was very friendly and had no problem answering all of Hannity’s questions.

    HANNITY: They’re really telling you to tell us to check back in on the website in off-hours. Does that mean that I should go on at like three in the morning?

    OPERATOR: It was saying early in the morning and late at night, but some people say they do that and still can’t get in.

    HANNITY: So people are reporting to you the real deal?

    OPERATOR: Yes sir, they are.

    HANNITY: Have you ever got anybody that really likes it yet?

    OPERATOR: Umm, no, not really.

    Obama declares obamacare unacceptable.

    No, wait, that was the American people. Obama just declared all the problems he’s having foisting it on us as unacceptable because he’s supposed to be omnipotent and nobody nor nothing is allowed to stand in his way or go against his will.

    Moonbats sing praises of obamacare ‘death panels’

    Canada Has Death Panels
    And that’s a good thing.
    By Adam Goldenberg

    Last week Canada’s Supreme Court ruled that doctors could not unilaterally ignore a Toronto family’s decision to keep their near-dead husband and father on life support. In the same breath, however, the court also confirmed that, under the laws of Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, a group of government-appointed adjudicators could yet overrule the family’s choice. That tribunal, not the family or the doctors, has the ultimate power to pull the plug.
    In other words: Canada has death panels.

    Mercy killing?

    What on Earth could drive a 22 year old guy to go to bed with a 63 year old woman. At least he’s out of that misery now. Or he would be. Unfortunately for him the shot missed and he got only a minor injury from flying debris.

    World’s worst mom?

    A New Hampshire woman has been sentenced to nine to 30 years in state prison after pleading guilty to subjecting her 18-year-old son to beatings and other physical abuse. The Concord Monitor reports assistant county prosecutor George Waldron said the teenager suffered permanent nerve damage in his penis when the 53-year-old Gelineau burned it with a lighter in April. Gelineau is also accused of burning her son’s nipples completely off, stabbing him with a pen and forcing him to eat worms.

    You know, if anyone tried that with me when I was 18… why did he sit still for it?

    Wikipedia admits what we always knew.

    Their stories are biased, sometimes significantly so.


    Could the appearance of rare “sea serpents” washing ashore beaches in Southern California portend disaster?

    The question comes following the discovery of the carcass of a rare 18-foot-long oarfish off the coast of Catalina Island on Oct. 13, followed by another snakelike 14-foot-long oarfish found on Oct. 18 in Oceanside.

    Fishermen in Japan reported a sharp uptick in oarfish sightings in March 2010 following the massive magnitude-8.8 earthquake in Chile that same month, which marked almost exactly one year before the country was devastated by its own magnitude-8.9 quake in northeast Japan. According to traditional Japanese lore, oarfish rise to the water’s surface and beach themselves to warn of an impending earthquake, a notion that some scientists have speculated could be supported by the bottom-dwelling fish being more sensitive to seismic shifts.


    47% say Congress would work better if nearly every seat changed hands next year.

    In a nationwide USA TODAY/Princeton Survey Research Poll, just 4% of those surveyed — equal to the margin of error — say Congress would be changed for the worse if nearly every member was replaced next year. Nearly half say it would work better. About four in 10 say a wholesale overhaul wouldn’t make much difference.

    Americans Sign Petition to Support “Nazi-Style Orwellian Police State”

    After illustrating their enthusiasm for repealing the Bill of Rights, a video shows Americans happily signing a petition to support a “Nazi-style Orwellian police state,” in what easily represents the most shocking footage of its kind to date.

    The standard bearer for using satirical petitions to illustrate how misinformed Americans really are stretches all the way back to 1990, when it was repeatedly proven that people would sign petitions to ban water, but only if it was renamed “dihydrogen monoxide.” Penn and Teller reproduced the social experiment in 2003 when they were successful in getting environmentalists to sign a similar petition.

    Families suspect SEAL Team 6 crash was inside job on worst day in Afghanistan

    And there is some possible support for that belief:

    An Afghan army special forces commander has defected to an insurgent group allied with the Taliban

    “He sent some of his comrades on leave and paid others to go out sightseeing, and then escaped with up to 30 guns, night-vision goggles, binoculars and a Humvee,” said Shuja ul-Mulkh Jalala, the governor of Kunar.

    Somewhere there’s a hellfire missile or a 2,000 lb bomb with his name on it.

    Demands to add Muslim (and other) holidays to calendars getting out of hand.

    With both mayoral candidates supporting the addition of two Muslim holidays to the New York City public school calendar, one city councilman may finally get his wish.

    As WCBS 880′s Jim Smith reported Sunday, Councilman Robert Jackson (D-7th) is the only Muslim on the City Council. He has been pushing days off in the school calendar for Muslim holidays for years, sponsoring a resolution that passed the City Council unanimously back in 2009.

    Maybe he will celebrate down in the 9/11 victory mosque.

    Anyone is better than Waxman.

    I’d vote for a chimpanzee if I thought it had a chance to beat Waxman.

    It would be an improvement.

    Obama job approval declines.

    President Barack Obama averaged a 44.5% job approval rating during his 19th quarter in office, a decline of more than three percentage points from his 18th quarter. That is one of the largest quarter-to-quarter declines of his presidency, behind a nine-point drop in his third quarter and a six-point drop in his 11th quarter.

    What’s amazing is that 44.5% of the country thinks he’s doing an OK job.

    Must be all those phantom Demcorats who reside 6 feet under.

    School shooting in Sparks, NV. Isn’t that Dirty Harry Reid territory?

    Details unclear.

    Other than the fact he didn’t have an ‘assault weapon’ and the fact the left will no doubt try to claim otherwise.

  9. Bob Roberts says:

    NO! I said LIBERALS, MOONBATS, not Neanderthals!

    Yes, I did say they WRONGLY considered themselves to be “plant-eating, self-medicating sophisticates… smart and sensitive people,” but I was talking about moonbats, not Neanderthals.

    What happens to a country when its young people stop having sex?

    They start fighting for gay ‘marriage’?

    Japan’s under-40s appear to be losing interest in conventional relationships. Millions aren’t even dating, and increasing numbers can’t be bothered with sex. For their government, “celibacy syndrome” is part of a looming national catastrophe. Japan already has one of the world’s lowest birth rates. Its population of 126 million, which has been shrinking for the past decade, is projected to plunge a further one-third by 2060. Aoyama believes the country is experiencing “a flight from human intimacy” – and it’s partly the government’s fault.

    Seriously, the same thing is happening here with male-hating and gay-promotion being adopted as deliberate strategies of the left.

    Black Racist Hate Crime Explodes!

    The 15 year old girl was returning from a football game at Interboro High School when she was taunted and stalked down a neighborhood street by a gang of teenage boys, cursing and spitting at her until she was more brutally attacked in the Philadelphia suburb of Prospect Park.

    She recalled, “It was just horrible, just the worst feeling in the world. He punched me in my back and then kicked me in the back, and then punched me in the back of my head. I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t move, I couldn’t talk. I was just straight crying” when at least two of the nine teenagers punched and kicked her as the others cheered and shouted, “Come on, let’s get her!” They tried to throw her under a passing car which almost ran her over. She staggered for over a mile to get to her home and safety and collapsed in her driveway.

    Her parents rushed her to Taylor Hospital and she was medevaced to Children’s Hospital and treated for a partially collapsed lung and other injuries. She was released two days later and is “recovering at home as police move forward with their investigation,” an “investigation” devoid of any move-forwarding as to the identity of the girl’s attackers nor any suggestion that she was the victim of a black hate crime. (

    In Brooklyn, New York near Kings Plaza Shopping Center, a couple driving through the neighborhood was surrounded by ten young people–including a 12-year-old girl–who were walking across the street in Mill Basin.

    Ronald Russo and his wife, Alanna, had a green light but the husband made the mistake of honking at the group to get out of the way. They reacted by kicking his vehicle and Mr. Russo made a worse mistake by exiting his car in order to check on any damage. He was dragged to the ground, punched, kicked in the head, sustained a fractured nose, a broken septum, and a blood clot and abrasions to his shoulder.

    Apparently because the mob considered his wife complicit in dissing the mob by honking at them so Mr. Russo wouldn’t injure anyone, Alanna was dragged out of the car by her hair onto the pavement by the 12 year old assailant . . . (Read more at

    Actually, yeah, I did the Obama as the Sham Wow guy, back in 2009.
    And iOTWers are always on the lookout for poachers and I appreciate that. But I don’t consider this a bad faith poach.
    Taking what I did and incorporating it into an entirely new piece is fair game and fair use.
    I have no problem with that. It was art and now it’s new art.
    Thanks for the link, Dave.
    You didn’t have to do that, but you did because you’re one of the good guys.

  22. Jodie says:


    Nice of you to share like that! And you are so right about Dave, he is one of the good guys!

    Which brings up a point that I have been wanting to make about tithing. If people study the Bible, they will find that God doesn’t say to give 10% of your income to a church. While giving to a church is wonderful – if you have a good one – it’s more about listening to where God tells you to give. One of the best places, in my opinion to give is We’re here, because we can speak the truth and get the word out and Dave has provided the most awesome place to do that.

    I give more than 10% of my income to the Internet ministries that I appreciate and to Moonbattery, Joe Dan Gorman, Jay Sekulow, etc. I might just give something to BigFurHat after I get my first paycheck in four years on Friday. I don’t like to mention my giving, because I might lose a crown in Heaven for doing so, but I do want to encourage everyone to give to those that are fighting the good fight! The more you give, the more blessings you will receive – I promise you that!

    Here is a great list of Bible verses about tithing:

    “Genesis 14:20 – Melchizedek comes out to meet Abraham, as Abraham gives him a tithe of the spoils of his victory.
    Genesis 28:20-22 – After the vision of God’s renewed covenant, Jacob initiates a covenant with God vowing to give him a tithe of what he receives from the promised land.
    Leviticus 27:30-32 – The specifications of tithing is introduced into the law of Moses.
    Numbers 18:20-32 – The tithe is dedicated the Levites for the work in the tabernacle.
    Deuteronomy 12:5-11 – God gives instructions for what to do with the tithe once Israel crosses the Jordan.
    Deuteronomy 14:22-29 – God gives instructions on how to disperse and exchange the tithe.
    Deuteronomy 26:12-15 – God gives instructions on how Israel should sanctify the tithe before they can ask for a blessing.
    2 Chronicles 31:5-12 – The children of Israel do what’s right under the reign of Hezekiah, and bring the tithes to the designated places.
    Nehemiah 10:37-38 – Israel obeys God and brings the tithes to the storehouse.
    Nehemiah 12:44 – Officers were appointed to watch over the tithes in the storehouse.
    Nehemiah 13:5-12 – Nehemiah cleanses the storehouse and kicks Tobiah out of the room that was designated to store the tithe. He then restores order.
    Amos 4:4 – God commands Israel to bring back the tithe and reiterates the curse that is upon them if they don’t.
    Malachi 3:8-10 – God reprimands Israel for not delivering the tithe, and reiterates the blessings and curse that would be in result of whatever decision they chose.
    Matthew 23:23 – Jesus rebukes the Pharisees for not obeying the weightier matters of the law along with tithing.
    Luke 11:42 – A parallel passage of Matthew 23:23 as Jesus rebukes the Pharisees for not obeying the weightier matters of the law along with tithing.
    Luke 18:12 – A Pharisee brags about his obedience to the law and tithing.
    Hebrews 7:5-9 – Abraham’s tithe is used to illustrate a change concerning the priesthood.”
