ISIS Message To Obama

The pen is mightier than the sword. Ridicule is mightier than the pen. Humor is a caricature of reality: an exaggeration of some characteristics and oversimplification of others. (Wiki) But that theory of humor presupposes that the observer is in touch with reality. This explains why many won't accept present schtick. LOL

(Video) Religion Versus Freedom

In today’s culture there is a tendency to associate capitalism with religion. That association stems from generations of conservatives suggesting that what makes America free, great, and exceptional is faith. So it’s hardly a surprise that many Americans who revere science oppose capitalism.



Onkar Ghate challenges the view that we face a choice between science and capitalism. 

In this talk, delivered as part of ARI’s Road to a Free Society tour, ARI senior fellow Onkar Ghate challenges the view that we face a choice between science and capitalism. Instead, he argues that capitalism is the system of reason and science — and that statism is the system of faith and obedience to authority. 

Recorded on December 3, at ARI’s headquarters in Irvine, California.

(Video) IS Smashing 3,000 Year Old Assyrian Artifacts

In the last few days reports keep coming in of hundreds of Assyrian Christians abducted from their villages. (Source) In the margins of that terrible news cultural cleansing is taking place at unprecedented pace, part of the official definition of genocide. 



Feb 26, 2015 ISIS militants take the hatchet to priceless 3,000 year old Assyrian artifacts in Nineveh Museum, Mosul. H/t @Kromst

The Islamic State released a video on Thursday showing militants using sledgehammers to smash ancient artifacts in Mosul. There is no place in the reborn world for three thousand year old 'idolatry'. These aren't 'idols' as such, but that Biblical commandment is just an excuse anyway. The psycho-epistemology that moves these primitive mystics is plain. These Utopians want to rid their post revolutionary world of all impure thoughts. They mean to destroy ideas, which is why they destroyed the people first. Taking the hatchet to the symbols of their past is just the final nail in the coffin. 

Juxtaposing 'American Sniper' and Jihadi Sniper

The ISIS Propaganda Unit have posted a video that is supposed to be the terror organization's answer to the Oscar winning, blockbuster movie American Sniper directed by Clint Eastwood. All they do is prove who they are: knuckle dragging Neanderthals with guns.



Feb 25, 2015 The footage, showing a series of assassinations in Syria, is said to be a bid to rival the Oscar nominated film American Sniper.

You could have fooled Michael Moore, or the other primitive life form called ISIS, but American Sniper isn't about shooting as many people in the head as possible. The opening scene shows Kyle with a target in the cross hairs. He abstains from shooting him. Next he is presented with a mother and child, which poses an almost impossible moral dilemma for any soldier who has just become a father for the first time. The mother hands the boy an IED (or some other explosive device) for a suicide mission against the convoy Kyle is to protect. Kyle shoots both nevertheless, saving the lives of his comrades.

Democrats Toeing The Party Line on Islamic Terror

Mental babies with razors are running an existential war against our civilization (source), some on purpose, some out of stupidity. This is the moment where we all burst out in to hysterical laughter by the absurdity of it all. It could actually be funny in a bizarre sort of way if it wasn't so exceedingly dangerous. 



Sen. Tom Cotton and Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelley File” had harsh words for Obama. (Source)

UPDATE: Democrats bending their minds in order to stick to the party line. They're really good old politically correct collectivists.

Shia Rebels Overrun US Training Base in Yemen

Yemen is the ground zero where the forces of Islam's two great traditions -- Sunnism and Shi'ism -- collide over the hegemony of the Middle East. It also happens that whoever controls Yemen, controls shipping through the Red Sea. 

UPDATE:

Drones Over Paris: 3 Al Jazeera Journos Arrested

Terror sympathizers are being emboldened by the lack of resolve of our leaders. Most would think that the arrest of 3 Al Jazeera journos (PR arm Muslim Brotherhood) for allegedly operating a drone from a park in Paris, is a hoax. But it's by no means certain they were the only ones conducting reconnaissance flights.


Paris drone sightings. 

Three Al-Jazeera journalists have been arrested for flying a drone in Paris after French capital was put on terror alert because remote control gadgets had been seen flying over landmarks.

  • The reporters were allegedly operating the drone from a suburban park.
  • There is no suggestion they were involved in a recent spate of sightings. Meaning, their may be others, also conducting test flights.
  • Unmanned aircraft were seen flying over tourist hotspots in French capital.
  • Appeared in 'at least' five locations in the city in early hours of Monday.
  • Security officials were unable to catch the operators of the drone aircraft.
  • Civilian drones are thought a serious security risk and are banned in Paris.

Copenhagen Muslims' 'Chain of Peace' Not All It Seems

Danish police confirmed that a gunman opened fire at the Copenhagen Synagogue on Krystalgade Street less than 24 hours after a shooting at a free-speech event. In the attack on the synagogue 2 people were killed, 2 wounded. (Source

UPDATE: Oh well, reform of Islam was a great idea for an hour or two..

Muslim Brotherhood and High Level Infiltration

The Muslim Brotherhood looks pragmatic, but that's a tactic. Their goal is infiltration to directly challenges western thought. MB actively recruit Muslim intellectuals. Brothers use western ideological terms, such as democracy to lend their own definition to these concepts. The MB's stated goal is the conquest of the Western world by cultural means.

UPDATE: Entryism, the favourite tactic of the 1980s’ Militant Tendency, is when a political party or institution is infiltrated by groups with a radically different agenda. Since Militant’s Trotskyites were expelled from the Labour Party, the word has rather fallen out of fashion. But now, according to one Muslim leader, Islamic radicals are practising entryism of their own — into the heart of Whitehall – courtesy of a woman who was until recently a government minister. Baroness Warsi, the first Muslim woman to sit in Cabinet, handed official posts to people linked to Islamist groups, including a man involved in an “unpleasant and bullying” campaign to win planning permission for the controversial London “megamosque” proposed by a fundamentalist Islamic sect. He sits – alongside other radicals or former radicals and their allies – on a “cross-Government working group on anti-Muslim hatred” set up by Lady Warsi and Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister.

Weekend Quiz: Guess the Obama ME Foreign Policy

Those who listen to Obama don't understand the nature of his Postmodern world view: reality is not an independent external truth, but is in the eye of the beholder. The description of such a reality makes words fluid, meaning one thing one moment, something other the next. So instead we should look at what his actions tell us. Riddle me this:

HISTORY OF ISLAM HOLDS KEY TO ISIS' DESTRUCTION

The Iranian-Dutch professor of law and critic of political Islam, Afshin Ellian (Wiki) has posted an interesting article, suggesting a way how the intelligence services could destroy the Caliphate. The secret to its destruction lies in the history of Islam itself.


Afshin Ellian has a brilliant idea! 

The Islamic State has adopted a entirely different theological dogma than its predecessors. Before the Islamic State declared the Caliphate, theological teachings were rooted in the dogmata of Ibn Taymiyyah (1263-1328) (source)). Let's delve into the history of Islam for a moment.

Obama's 3 Day Int'l Seminar on Islam Apologetics

This week Obama is holding a three day seminar on Islam apologetics. The false concepts, equivocations and plain lies coming out of that forum defy description. But it is obviously what Western leaders choose to believe. The rest of us will have to deal with that as well as with the reality of Jihadism.

As far as a keen observer might be able to make out, the goal of Obama international conference on global fundamental extremism (or extreme fundamentalism) may be to separate religion in general, and Islam in particular from terrorism and the Islamic State. A few very destructive misunderstandings can't be repeated often enough.

DRAW A MOHAMMED CARTOON, WIN $10,000

To show the world that they aren’t going to submit to savagery the human rights advocacy group, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI, will be holding an online contest for cartoons of Mohammed. The winning cartoonist will be awarded a $10,000 prize.

It’s time the free world said enough is enough. On Saturday, an Islamic jihadist murdered one person and wounded three, firing multiple shots at an event entitled “Art, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression” at the Krudttoenden cafe in Copenhagen, featuring Muhammad cartoonist Lars Vilks and Francois Zimeray, the French ambassador to Denmark. Clearly he wanted to kill Vilks and continue the Islamic attack on free speech. [Written before the events later that evening at the Copenhagen Synogogue (source): red.]

IS ESCALATE TERROR PER SAVAGERY HANDBOOK

The Islamic State has released a series of videos showing beheadings of American and British hostages. With a series narrated by British journalist, John Cantlie the tactic changed. After the beheading of two Japanese hostages the downed Jordanian pilot was burnt alive. The IS ideology drives it to ever greater savagery (source).



UPDATE: THE ISIS IDEOLOGY DRIVES IT TO EVER GREATER SAVAGERY, reads a recent headline. After the Jordinian pilot was burnt alive we wrote that behind this outrage is an ideology that is driving the Islamic State to ever more terror and brutality. Here's another escalation. (Source)

#COPENHAGEN ATTACKS DIDN'T HAPPEN IN A VACUUM

A shooting took place at a free speech event in Copenhagen. One civilian was confirmed killed and 3 police officers wounded. Around 40 shots were fired. Cartoonist Lars Vilks was evacuated by security services and may have been the target. Hours later a synagogue was under attack. (Source


Lars Vilks famous Motoon. 

The facts:
  • 40-yr-old Danish man killed in shooting at cultural centre 
  • Three policemen reported injured
  • French ambassador to Denmark inside but unharmed 
  • Meeting about freedom of speech was being held at the time
  • Gathering organised by Swedish artist Lars Vilks
  • Lars Vilks caricatured Prophet Muhammad in 2007

UPDATE: In the light of the double attack in Copenhagen, a carbon copy of the program followed in Paris, links to past stories are circulating making the puzzle fall into place. Indeed, terrorist attacks don't happen in a vacuum and are the result of years of policies leading to a culmination that is costing people's lives which might have been saved if political leaders did what they're hired to do: the protection of the realm. Here are a few highlights:

UK POLICE HOUNDING CHARLIE HEBDO FANS

Long overdue. A file to bring together stories showing that Western political leaders are traitors to the values and the fundamental rights rooted in the philosophy of Liberty. You can't force a man to think or to acquire knowledge, but you can hold him responsible for ignorance by design and criminal negligence.

 The British LibLabCon Government is kicking this series off. May have something to do with a Fascist outfit called Common Purpose that promotes subordination as a leadership skill.

Several British police forces have questioned newsagents in an attempt to monitor sales of a special edition of Charlie Hebdo magazine following the Paris attacks, the Guardian has learned. Officers in Wiltshire, Wales and Cheshire have approached retailers of the magazine, it has emerged, as concerns grew about why police were attempting to trace UK-based readers of the French satirical magazine. Wiltshire police apologised on Monday after admitting that one of its officers had asked a newsagent to hand over the names of readers who bought a special “survivors’ issue” of the magazine published after its top staff were massacred in Paris last month. The case in Corsham, Wiltshire, was thought to be an isolated incident but it has since emerged that Cheshire constabulary and Dyfed-Powys police have also approached newsagents over the sale of Charlie Hebdo. In at least two cases – in Wiltshire and in Presteigne, Wales – officers have requested that newsagents hand over the names of customers who bought the magazine. (Source)

PROOF IS IN! MOHAMMED WAS A FRAUD

Humanists have the wrong idea of what constitutes a religion: it's an ideology with the purpose of serving one or more gods. Religion is not about giving man a purpose in life or becoming a better person! But that is not what this posting is about. It's to show that Islam is a fraud. 

Here's the philosophical proof that Mohammed was a fraud.

Farage: 'UKIP Is the People's Party of Capitalism'

Appearing at the Movie Starr Cinema in Canvey Island, Essex Jamie Huntman, Ukip's parliamentary candidate for Castle Point introduced today UKIP's leader, Nigel Farage. UKIP is now a people's party for Capitalism in the true sense, against the corporatism based in Brussels. 



Feb. 12, 2015 Jamie Huntman and Nigel Farage (5:30) full speeches.

Nigel Farage ruled out entering a coalition government as he promised that the Ukip "people's army" will shake the Establishment in the upcoming general election. Appearing at the Movie Starr Cinema in Canvey Island, Essex, the Ukip leader held a tub of popcorn bearing the party's logo as he launched the drive for the May poll. He said the three main parties do not "believe in Britain" and predicted Ukip would win "significantly more" than two or three seats. (Source)

Secret video smuggled out the IS capital, Raqqa

The Coalition is engaging in limited 'kinetic' strikes against the Islamic State in Syria. John Kerry has said the objective of this long term counter-terrorist op is not the destruction of IS. It is consistent with the Western contradictory strategy to combat Assad as well. 



An activist group that secretly operates inside ISIS's home base talks about how they risk their lives to get the story out.

WEST IS CLUELESS ABOUT ISLAMIC STATE

Western politicians led by Barack Obama have a false idea about what moves Islamic terrorists and the Islamic State. The present policy is useless. Last weekend a very important article was posted that explains the integrated IS ideology.



Feb 9, 2015 Charles Krauthammer: Obama thinks a strategy to defeat Islamic State is not necessary. 

The American conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer gets it. Separating Islam from the Islamic State has consequences. It not just absolves Islam of the crimes committed by the Islamic State in the name of the religion of peace. The problem becomes intractable, because nothing is done to get to the root. But there are also consequences how to combat the Islamic State. Because of the false identification (random crime, instead of systematic warfare) we are going haphazardly after unrelated incidents. Western Governments vow to combat terrorists; but they are sent through the revolving door of the penal justice system and come out free men at the other end, because the standards are civil, rather than military. (A Dutch Court yesterday found two men not guilty of preparing to carry out terrorist attacks by joining radical Islamic groups in Syria: source.) These people are walking time bombs waiting to explode. What we need is an institute like GITMO to take these asymmetic killers off the battle field.

WHY CHILD LABOR ISN'T AN EVIL, BUT A GOOD.

Last year the CEO of the Ayn Rand Institute, Yaron Brook, made a very successful tour of Europe. One particular segment in his speeches attracted particular flack from the audience: that child labor is a phase in the development of Capitalism and isn't an evil, but a good.


The most watched video from the European tour: Yaron Brook vs. student.

Muslims Protesting #CharlieHebdo in London

Terror at the offices of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. 17 people have been killed. European leaders then held the faux styrofoam #ParisMarch of Surrender, poking one in the eye of Jihadists. Here's the fall out. 

UPDATE: Three things about "being offended" as a means of control. 1. Don't buckle to the pressure. 2. No one can offend you without your consent. 3. Truth seekers can't be offended. OK, here are offended Muslims exercising their freedom of speech to demand the end of freedom of speech. So glad Monty doesn't have to see this.

What Obama's Prayer Breakfast Speech Is Telling Us

Indications that the core of the Obama regime consists of committed Marxist postmodernists has been well known, far before he was ever elected President. For a long time the White House  have been able to mask its nature. But with the wrapping up of the Presidency, the ugly truth is becoming much more apparent.



Feb 7, 2015 Judge Jeanine Pirro Opening Statement on Obama's telling Prayer Breakfast.

UPDATE:

THE ISIS IDEOLOGY DRIVES IT TO EVER GREATER SAVAGERY

The video showing the burning alive of the captive Jordanian pilot prompted revulsion around the world. Propaganda!, cried Islam apologists. Don't show it! But behind this outrage is a postmodern ideology that is driving the Islamic State to ever more terror and brutality. If true, we ain't seen nothing yet. 


This image is not meant as 'propaganda', as an elevator pitch. It's terror, intimidation aimed at breaking the will of anyone who even thinks of resistance. 

The burning to death in a locked cage of captured Jordanian pilot Muadh al- Kasasbeh by Islamic State was barbarous even by its own brutal standards. The group struggled to justify the live immolation of a Muslim prisoner with the ease it did in previous cases of heinous crimes. In a written fatwa about two weeks before the video, Isis-affiliated clerics cited differences of opinion over the issue among Sunni Islam’s four schools of jurisprudence. In the end, the Isis clerics ruled that immolation is "forbidden in principle" but "permissible in cases of reciprocity". In previous cases, Isis found little difficulty in citing evidence to back the religious legitimacy of its acts.

Why European Integrationists Hate the State of Israel

Europe is justifying picking on Israel by holding its 'own' to a higher standard than say, Third World countries, or the Palestinians. At the core this hypocrisy is the racism of the diminished expectation. It says in fact: the other guys are subhuman so we don't expect them to behave as such. 



Dec 12, 2014 The European Stance on Israel Is Racist To the Core: Caroline Glick is demolishing the patronizing racism of European ambassadors during the Europe-Israel panel at The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference.

UPDATE: Israel’s story is by no means unblemished; but it is uplifting. It’s a story of how freedom can take root in even the most unpromising conditions. Such a story appeals to optimistic types, but repels the envious, the eternally aggrieved, the gloomsters who see free markets as some kind of racket — the same people, indeed, who tend also to be anti-British and anti-American, whether they be Left Bank intellectuals or Putinite nationalists or Bolivarian revolutionaries.

Apollo Versus Dionysos: Gimme Shelter (1969)

In a lecture Ayn Rand provides a concretization of the issue of reason vs. emotion via an analysis of two contrasting events of 1969: the glorious achievement of the Apollo 11 moon flight and the mindless mud-wallowing of the Woodstock rock festival



Gimme Shelter 1969 - The Rolling Stones. (Wiki) (Lyrics)

Like Romantic literature is inexplicably great in a period that is essentially horrid, so the 1968 generation created great, inspiring music in the time that was in essence cataclysmic for Western civilization. It was the height of Cultural Marxism that did away with the last vestiges of the rule of reason. From here onwards mad Dionysos took over and tore every last shred of Apollonian reign. The free love and peace on offer by the new generation and their noble aspirations hadn't been unmasked by then, as it is now. The rainbow shibboleth towards the end of the video is now associated with Barack Obama's faux war on ISIL. And we are reminded of the sheer hypocrisy that determines this culture: the Islamic State that is raping and murdering across the Middle East at will without any noticeable objection of the folks that come out in numbers whenever they see a possibility to charge free countries with war crimes. Key is not the evil of "Rape, murder, just a shot away", but rather who can be accused of doing it.
