As Islamists Continue To Stack One Body On Another, Our Media Remains Largely Silent

"If Islam is a 'religion of peace,' it's time to show the evidence to the endangered Christians of the Middle East." Ralph Peters

Yesterday in Nigeria, Islamists blew up a bus station where at least 71 people were killed (fatalities likely to be higher). In the blast, 16 buses were destroyed and at least 25 vehicles. As of this writing, over 125 people were injured, many severely. Yet hardly a mention in our media as CNN continues reporting on pings and debris for over a month now.

In the past, I've written about the virtual silence and white noise from our media, administration and even most of Congress when it comes to Islamists literally murdering Christians and others throughout the globe. Last year, I was particularly incensed when the Indonesian government actually freed several terrorists who had kidnapped and beheaded three Catholic school girls. Along with one of the severed heads, the scumbags left this note: "We will murder 100 or more Christian teenagers and their heads will be presented as presents."

Since 9/11/01, Islamists have carried out more than 22,700 terror attacks.  Last week alone, there were over 50 attacks that resulted in 594 dead and 582 critically injured (meaning man of those have probably already died)...from the Religion of Peace.com. And I guarantee you that most Americans are not aware of most of these attacks largely due to the absence of reporting by our own press. But let Kim Kardasian flash her big, fat ass and the press is all over it.

So it's time to take a moment to report on a fraction of the terror attacks and Islamists terror news. Most of these reports come from the foreign press not our media.

  • Turkey recently announced plans to build a special prison for gays.  Hurriyet Daily News
  • Islamists in Bangladesh announced that Atheists will not be allowed to live in the country. Dhaka Tribune
  • An Islamists preacher in Australia prayed for the slaughter of Hindus and Buddhists. Middle East Research Institute
  • Thousands of British school girls have been victimized by Muslim gangs. Gatestone Institute.
  • An Imam and three accomplices were arrested for gang raping a 12 year-old girl. The Nation
  • Europe is becoming a breeding ground for Islamists terrorists entering Syria. Tokyo Times
  • Some of the "freedom fighters" who are at war in Syria and whom Pres. Obama and PM wanted to help have now been reclassified as "the biggest threat to Britain's security." It is believed from 200-400 are now back in Britain. MI5 British Security
  • Taliban kidnapped about 100 men in a Pakistani village. Forty were released but negotiations are on-going for the rest of those still being held.  Times Of India
  • Boko Haram, an Islamists terror group in Nigeria, murdered over 1000 Christians since 2009. International Christian Concern.
  • Last Easter Week, Islamists in Nigeria attacked a village and murdered 80 Christians many of them children. Voice of America
  • In 2010, the Afghan government ordered the destruction of the last Christian church in the country. Hoover Institution
  • Last week, al-Qaeda's magazine--Inspire---carried a caption of a people-mover train at SF International Airport with the caption: "Assemble Your Bomb." SF Chronicle
  • Gambia's State House Imam likened homosexuality to terrorism. Jollofnews
  • Last week in Syria, Islamists murdered a Dutch Catholic Jesuit priest. World 
  • And Islamic mob murdered a Christian woman in Cairo, Egypt. International Christian Concern

I can go on for pages listing the attacks by Islamists against other religious and non-religious communities. The point I want to make is that most of these are rarely reported in our media. They need to be. The victims need a voice in the media. If the media continues to ignore these atrocities, the perpetrators will only feel more embolden to continue their religious and ethnic cleansing.

 In addition, while there are Muslims that are against these types of brutal attacks, they still remain largely silent. I'll even go further. By remaining silent, I believe that makes them complicit in these crimes and atrocities.

Republicans: Why Are You So Scared Of Someone As Incompetent As Hillary Clinton?

Hillary knows she's not through answering for Benghazi. She's always been waiting for the other shoe to drop...Jay Carnie Tweet

  • Allow me to take you back to about 2006 & 2007. At the time, all we heard from Democrats, the media and even many Republicans was: Hillary was a shoe in (pun intended).  No one can beat her. She paid her dues by supporting her philandering husband, and now (2008) was her time. She had already been cloaked in bubble wrap by the media. The media bandwagons encircled her to deflect any incoming from political opponents. After all, who were the adversaries in her own party? Slo Joe Biden? He dropped out in January of 2008 because he bombed in Iowa. Ditto Chris Todd. Ditto John Edwards. Ditto Dennis Kucinich. You get the picture.
  • But a ball flew out of left field. His name was Barack Obama or to quote the most miserable prick in the Senate, Harry Reid, at the time:  a "light skinned" African-American with "no negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." The rest is history
  • And that outcome should not have surprised anyone. Democrats have a history of electing or supporting candidates that just magically appear on the scene. It happened with Jimmy Carter in 1976 and with Bill Clinton in 1992. In fact, more establishment Democrats like Al Gore and John F. Kerry generally don't cross the finish line.
  • And one can now argue that Hillary Clinton is entrenched in the Democrat political establishment. In addition, she's had few, if any, successes either as the senator from New York State and as the former Secretary of State. In fact, she even failed miserably when her husband charged her with developing an Obamacare like health program in 1992.  The truth is her record of accomplishment is conspicuous by its absence. Her only accomplishment has been her unique ability to carry coat tails. Other than that, only the knee-pad media and her die-hard political supporters believe in her. Her record, on the other hand, is a disaster as evidenced by the Benghazi scandal. She couldn't even wake up to take the 3 a.m. phone call.
  • Of course, I'm not that naive. She'll have a good shot at the presidency for several reasons. The most important reason being money raised. She'll raise millions. She already has. And even with her monumental failures, she does have wide name recognition. Of course, the presstitutes in the media will continue cloaking her in bubble wrap. And she still has solid support from progressive women.
  • But when she starts her run (if she does), you'll know she'll have one name in the back of her mind...Barack Obama.

Yo Eric! We Are Going To Go There You Pompous Ass

Eric Holder said, "Don't go there" out of habit. He usually says the same thing to JD investigators looking into Obama scandals...Jay Carnie Tweet

  • Those who follow me regularly know I take no political prisoners. Whether it's Harry Reid the most miserable prick in Congress to John F. Kerry, a back-stabbing fake, phony and fraud to Hillary Clinton to many spineless Republicans, they are all fair game. 
  • So it probably will come as no surprise that AG Eric Holder will require some of my attention today.  During a House Judiciary Committee hearing earlier this week, he responded to questioning by Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas with this: "You don't want to go there buddy. You don't want to go there, okay?"

  • After his appearance in front of the committee, he spoke to Al Sharpton's National Action Network and---to no one's surprised---whined and threw out the race card complaining about his treatment by the committee. Now keep in mind, he spoke to the National Action Network. This is the same organization that owed almost $2 million in back taxes and penalties. In fact, in December of 2012, The New York Post reported Al Sharpton owed the IRS $2.6 million in back taxes and almost $900,000 in state taxes. In other words, as the Justice department today under Holder has failed to follow-up on the current IRS scandals that targeted largely conservative groups, he was speaking in front of an organization that owed millions in back taxes. And just to let you know, Pres. Obama is headlining the NAN's national conference this week. 
  • Eric Holder also complained that no other Attorney General has been treated as poorly as he has. I have just one name for Holder: Alberto Gonzales. He was AG under George W. Bush and was vilified by the Democrats. Gonzales was the highest ranking Hispanic in our government at the time. Yet, no one to my knowledge accused Democrats of racism.
  • So let's continue going there Eric. With Fast and Furious, your department was responsible for losing track of over 2000 weapons that ended up in the hands of the most vile drug cartels on the planet. At least one of those weapons were found at the murder scene of slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Or how about spying on the Associated Press? Or monitoring Fox News Reporter James Rosen's activities? Or not pursuing voter intimidation tactics by the New Black Panther Party during the 2008 election in Philadelphia? Or being held in contempt by Congress for failing to provide documents the committee requested regarding the Fast and Furious operation?

  • The fact is any other U.S. Attorney General with this kind of deceitful and self-righteous background and behavior would have been impeached or fired by now. But wait---you're covered in black bubble wrap. My bad. That explains everything. Just ask Charlie Rangel.

Pres. Obama, Hillary Clinton + John F. Kerry: The Faces Of Failure, Defeat + Appeasement

"The good news: Some of President Obama's threats still strike fear in their targets' hearts. The bad: It's not the heart of America's enemies..." Benny Avni, NY Post Middle East columnist

  • Not long ago, I wrote a piece about the failures of our foreign policy. I later corrected that piece to claim we actually have no foreign policy.
  • During Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State, the best that could be said during her time in that Office was she traveled a lot and met with key players on the geo-political ball field. That's like saying Joe is a great salesperson because he drove 500 miles today, met with several clients but didn't sell a damn thing.  
  • But even Trudy Rubin of the Philadelphia Inquirer (not exactly a right-of-center publication) wrote this: "Clinton produced no diplomatic breakthroughs nor any new strategic doctrine...She has no major foreign policy success." Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post later wrote: "Where is the record of accomplishment, let alone greatness?" As she traveled throughout the world getting praise and awards from the hordes of genuflecters , we watched as Egypt slipped into the chains of the Muslim Brotherhood and Syria started to implode. By the way, her tenure as Senator from NY State wasn't much better. Gov.track.us reported her record of accomplishment as Senator as trifling. In addition, she missed about 10% of her votes. The average is about 2% among Senators.

  • And then another fake, phony and fraud (in his case, back-stabbing fraud) entered the world of American geo-politics. His name? John F. Kerry. This guy grabbed the baton from Hillary and proceeded to lose more races. In the last year, he's carried through with employing Pres. Obama's vision. Namely, as pointed out by the Washington Post's editorials board: "President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality." In the last five years, the Obama administration has been able to use its red line, not against our enemies, but against our own prestige, influence, security, and military strength (as evidenced by Hagel recommending we cut our military forces to the level prior to WWII).
  • With Kerry, however, this lack of foreign policy expertise has been a disaster for the United States as well as the rest of the world. This is a Secretary of State who is clueless when it comes to facing the likes of Putin as he his by the Palestinians. The NY Post even made this observation: "That John Kerry---what a joker. With Russia showing signs it will bite off another piece of Ukraine, our secretary of state warned that Vladimir Putin will face 'further costs' he he takes one more step. 'Further costs' suggests Putin paid a price for gobbling up Crimea..."
  • What we've witnessed with this administration in the last five years is not only a significant polarization within our own borders but also beyond our borders. Or, as Michael Goodwin said recently: "No president can win 'em all but Obama's foreign-policy record is unblemished by success."

Pope Francis Fires A Missile Across The Bow Of Progressives

Pope To Reduce His Twitter Followers' Time In Purgatory...The Onion

  • After Pope Francis took over the Papal throne more than a year ago, progressives believed they had an advocate in the Vatican for all of their progressive-secular beliefs such as abortion and same-sex marriage. He appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone.  Even The Advocate, the LGBT publication, announced Pope Francis as their "Person of the Year." The LGBT community was impressed with the Pope's statement regarding gays when he said, "If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?" Shortly thereafter, he gave in interview to an Italian publication expressing the possibility of the Church recognizing civil unions for gays and lesbians. The door to civil unions was finally cracked open with those comments as they should have been much earlier (clearly, my opinion).
  • In the beginning, one could understand their euphoria. After all, Pope Francis was criticized by some on the Right for his pronouncements about Capitalism and the Free-Market. He made some comments about the negative effects of consumerism and economic inequality (what he clearly meant was that free markets alone cannot create economic growth). He chose not to reside in the papal palace but instead chose the Vatican guest house. They were even infatuated with his riding around in a Ford Focus rather than the papal limo. That was followed by the decision of the Pope to create a commission on sex-abuse policy (long overdue in my opinion and the opinion of most Catholics).
  • But what all of these folks on the Left failed to understand is that Pope Francis simply reinforced long held Catholic belief and theology. Catholics have always been concerned about the marginalized within their communities including the LGBT community. Catholicism has long preached inclusion . In fact, Christ preached a Gospel of inclusion. Concern for those in poverty has been held in high regard by the Church for centuries even as their own hierarchy was occasionally entrenched with their own corruption and greed (a trait common to most hierarchies as evidence by almost every political system on earth since the beginning of human history. Christ was a victim of such corruption). In many respects, the Catholic Church has long been both conservative and liberal but never in-between.  While redistribution of wealth has not been a radical notion for the Catholic Church, empowerment of the individual---free from overreaching government intrusion---has long been held in high esteem by most Catholics. Again, one simply has to revisit the Gospels to see how Christ himself dealt with government overreach and the price he paid for his response to government corruption.
  • But the honeymoon appears to be over. If it isn't, it soon will be. At his Papal audience last week, Pope Francis reinforced Catholic theology when it comes to traditional marriage.  He stressed the importance of marriage between a man and a woman when he declared: "When a man and woman celebrate the sacrament of marriage, God is reflected in them."
  • There is no doubt that the actions and words of Pope Francis are changing the way the Church is perceived. But I believe it's wrong to try to spin his rhetoric to enhance either conservative or progressive principles. Francis himself said we must have an "ever-watchful scrutiny of the sign of the times." In other words, more changes are coming. But it doesn't necessarily mean it's time to party for those on either side of the political spectrum.

Obama's Millennial Supporters: They Squeezed The Fruit But Didn't Get Any Juice

Pres. Obama is brewing his own beer at the White House. Actually, the White House beer is a lot like the Obama administration: great buzz, weak finish...Leno last year.

  • Before I begin my main thoughts, I want to give you an update. As my readers know, I've been taking NYC Mayor de Blasio and his progressive administration to task since he was elected mayor. From his war on charter schools (war on poor children) to many of his supporters (current NYC Speaker who lobbied on behalf of domestic terrorists), now comes this latest news. NYC Councilman Jumanne Williams wants the NYPD to stop arresting people who commit "minor" crimes in the subway systems. His minor crimes include drinking alcohol and public urination. Williams also said "an arrest can cause significant stress" to a criminal. Now folks, I grew up in NYC (Manhattan + the Bronx). I had the displeasure of having to take the subways on countless occasions. I can tell you from personal experience all kinds of human filth travel on that subway system. And if the disgusting behavior is not stopped in its tracks (pun intended), it continues. Note to Councilman Williams: what would you do to a piece of dirt who pulls out his privates to take a leak in front of a child let alone other commuters?  No wonder many in NYC believe the city is plunging into progressive hell once again.
  • It appears even Millennials are getting the message.  As the NY Post pointed out recently, the voter turnout for Obama by Millennials (those under 30) was huge. Most polls now show that Millennial support for Obama has evaporated.  And there appears to be very good reason for the plunge in ratings. When labor-force participating is included in their total unemployment rate, it reaches almost 16%. For Hispanics sit now stands at just a tad more than 16% and a pitiful 24% for Blacks (that rate jumps more than two-fold in many urban areas).  Just as disturbing, almost 2 million Millennials are not even counted because they've just given up looking for work.
  • Millennials, like many other Americans, have also watched as their incomes have eroded. They've entered a part-time job market too. Just last week, the Department of Labor reported that millions of Americans are only able to get part-time jobs. CNN Money reported that most U.S. jobs pay less than $20.00/hr. Eighteen million U.S. workers are now working in fast-food,  as waiters and waitresses, as cashiers, as maids and as personal care aides.
  • So it appears, millenniels, like millions of other Obama supporters, squeezed the fruit but didn't get any juice.

Progressive Totalitarian Bigotry + Intolerance Shows Its Ugly Face Yet Again

"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." George Orwell, "Animal Farm."

  • In the summer of 2012, progressive bigots took the CEO of Chick fil A to task for his support of traditional marriage.  At the time, even Pres. Obama was "evolving" regarding gay marriage (he conveniently changed his mind in support of gay marriage when he realized he needed more campaign funds from his gay supporters).
  • This past December, Phil Robertson was taken to task for his views on homosexuality. He was subsequently suspended for a shot period of time. A+E realized the revenue that they were losing---hence the reinstatement. Just like revenue, ratings can also prove too be a powerful bullet proof vest. At the time, Andrea Peyser of the NY Post wrote: "The network essentially defended the bruised feelings of the homosexual industrial complex." Even Camille Paglia, one of the nation's leading lesbian feminist, called the suspension as "utterly fascists and utterly Stalinist."

  • History among progressive bigots repeated itself yet again this week. Brendan Eich, now former CEO of Mozilla (the tech company behind Firefox browser), was forced to step down. About 6 years ago, Eich donated $1000.00 in the support of Prop 8, the California proposition that supported traditional marriage between a man and woman (the Prop passed overwhelmingly by the people to only be overturned in court). He was allegedly outed by some of his own employees. 
  • As I wrote recently about progressives, they create their own reality when it comes to anything having to do with free speech, faith, tolerance (in their case, intolerance) and the Constitution. That claim was supported by the company's own posting regarding Eich's sudden departure: "Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech (as long as you agree with them---me)...Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness (as long as you agree with them...me). Say what?
  • We will continue to witness bigotry by progressives compounded by their conspicuous intolerance of free speech, people of faith and the Constitution. Just as disturbing, they will also continue to profit from their own intolerance and divisiveness. We see this played out every hour of every day in the media and by Hollywood.
