CONGRESS TAKING RISK OF ARMING WRONG PEOPLE IN SYRIA

US Congress is warily on the verge of approving arming and training for "rebels" in Syria to fight against Muslim jihadists, except that both sides of this conflict appear to be Muslims:
Wary House lawmakers prepared to give President Barack Obama authority to arm and train Syrian rebels in the fight against Islamic State militants Wednesday as Iraq's new prime minister dismissed the notion that the struggle could lead to U.S. forces again fighting on the ground in his country.

"Not only is it not necessary, we don't want them. We won't allow them," Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Congress appears inclined to give Obama the authority he wants — the first vote was likely in the House on Wednesday — but lawmakers are sharply divided over whether the U.S. should be doing more or less. Some Republicans contend that Islamic State militants occupying large portions of Iraq and Syria cannot be defeated without U.S. ground troops backing up airstrikes in Iraq. Many Democrats oppose resuming a war in Iraq that the U.S. exited three years ago.
But if they go along with it, my guess is the MSM will refrain from negativity, because this is a Dem who's in charge now, unlike the time when a Republican led the campaign.

And this article is pretty slippery on the real picture: some of these "rebels" it speaks of are Muslims too, and anything but Christian or Buddhist. Arming them would do nothing to improve the situation, and sooner or later war would start anew between more Muslim factions, with Christians endangered further. If Congress approves this, they'll be making an awful mistake.

WHY THE SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE CAMPAIGN NOW GIVES A FEELING OF DREAD

Several years ago, I said I supported Scotland's independence, because I realized how a lot of Scots must be angry at the English government for enabling Islam's encroach, among other bad things. But the problem is, Alex Salmond is still in power, and he's taking the opportunity for anti-semitic rhetoric on the way to the ballot box (via Truth Revolt). It began on the BBC this time while discussing the beheading of British aid worker David Haines:
The Muslim community of Scotland isn't responsible in any shape or form for atrocities or extremism, just like a few weeks ago the Jewish community of Scotland wasn't responsible for the policies of the state of Israel. Thankfully we have strong communities and therefore we haven't had difficulty in that, but it's something we must have total vigilance [over]."
In other words, he's comparing Israel to ISIS, and that's disgusting. With Salmond in power, that's why Scottish independence from England is now looking more discouraging. Vivian Wineman of the local Board of British Jews said in response:
Any attempt to equate the actions of the democratically-elected Israeli government in defending its citizens from attack with the despicable cold-blooded murder of a British aid worker by terrorists would be self-evidently absurd and vile and we cannot conceive that this was the First Minister’s intention.

There has been a sharp rise in Antisemitism in Scotland following the Israeli military operation in Gaza in July.
That's another galling problem. Not just because there's Muslims in Scotland, but also because there's domestic anti-semites there too. Scottish Jews are worried this'll be the start of more Jew-hating nightmares:
Scotland’s politics, like its close Celtic cousin Ireland, are overwhelmingly left-leaning. Europe’s Left is the home of an anti-Israel bigotry and hysteria, which since “Protective Edge” has very often morphed into 1930’s anti-Semitism. Scotland’s government, the Scottish National Party, is left of center. In the entire country there is only one Conservative MP. The major levers of power, and an independent voice in international affairs, together with a seat at the table of international forums, are at present denied to Scotland’s anti-Israel politicians –a situation that may change irrevocably with a yes vote.
What's stupefying is why anyone in favor of shunning an alliance with the English would embrace the same beliefs and policies they do. One of the commentors at TR says:
I just lost all respect for my Celtic cousins . I can't believe they are even further left than the English . I thought they wanted to get out of the Union to save their culture not turn it over to the moooslim invaders. I guess Europe truly is through.
See, that was my assumption too. I thought the Scots were more realist than the English, and wanted nothing to do with their own nasty dhimmitude. Now I have to wonder if I was wrong.

To make matters worse, there's a concern the independence campaign could encourage palestinian pseudo-nationalism, even though, unlike the Celts of the Isle who have a real claim to it, there's no such thing as an Arabic/Islamic "palestianian people" and never was a palestianian land:
If the Scottish get their own state, the Welsh, Catalonians, the Basques, the Quebecois and many other nationalist movements across the globe will feel emboldened to push for independence as well, a spirit which could also impact not only the Palestinians, but also, some in Jerusalem fear, Israeli Arabs. There is no such mass movement yet, but Israeli authorities have long feared that the country’s approximately 22% non-Jewish minority, especially in the Galilee, will one day demand independence, especially in the wake of the establishment of a Palestinian state east of the Green Line.

Scotland splitting from the United Kingdom cannot be compared to Czechoslovakia being dissolved into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1993, as both parties agreed to part in peace. But in this case the rest of the UK wants to prevent the split, meaning that a possible victory for Scottish nationalism could be seen as a proof that unilateral breakaways are possible. “Suddenly everybody will come and demand independence,” the Israeli official said.
I can understand this worry. I don't think the Scots are inherently bad, but if this is how they're going to break away from the English, then they're making a mockery of themselves. And it makes me feel very sad.

BRITISH STORE GUARD BARS JEWS FROM ENTERING

A modern day case of apartheid in the UK (via Joshuapundit):
Leading retailer Sports Direct has apologised to customers after a security guard allegedly barred “Jews” from entering its store.

The security guard was removed from the store after he told Jewish students - Nathan Rosen and Daniel Levitan - they could not enter the branch in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, on Friday afternoon.

The guard, who was sacked from the security company supplying Sports Direct with staff, reportedly told two Year 7 students wearing Yavneh College school uniform: “No Jews, no Jews”.
Curious the JC makes no mention who the guard was - a Muslim, maybe? I'm glad justice prevailed here and he got kicked out. But the paper's done a serious wrong by failing to tell what the man's background was.

FUNNEST CORRECTION OF THE DECADE - Ace, quel surprise

Update: A love of science compels me to correct this and note that January through August is eight months, rather than "six" as I wrote, at least according the traditional, orthodox manner of counting typically favored by The Establishment. 
By the non-traditional, freethinking Eastern-inflected folkways I prefer, it could be any range of numbers from three to seventeen. I chose "six" as both a poetical, numinous number filled with mythic resonances and whispered truths, as well as being a good compromise figure between 3 and 17 calculated to not upset the more hidebound, numerically-orthodox minds out there in my readership. 
But I see now that even this minor gesture in the direction of open-mindedness and aesthetic daring is now being challenged and mocked. 
So, thus harassed by vicious critics, I have changed the number to the Establishment-preferred "eight." 
So The Establishment wins again. Quel surprise.

HONOR MURDER OF 14-YEAR-OLD IN GALILEE

On the day of the 9-11 Memorial, there was an honor murder committed in the Galilee:
Four men, including the victim’s brother, were indicted Thursday for murdering 14-year-old Fatma Hayb, allegedly because she had angered them by leaving her house without a chaperone.

Along with the brother, Mustafa Hayb, 24, the defendants are her cousins Majed Hayb, 20; Issa Hayb, 20; and Bashar Hayb, 19. All are residents of the village of Tuba Zangaria in the Upper Galilee.

Fatma was murdered on the night of June 12. According to the indictment filed in the Nazareth District Court, Mustafa and Majed had both threatened to hurt or even kill her several times before, saying she was leaving the house without their permission and wandering around without a chaperone. At some point, they decided to carry out their threat and enlisted Bashar and Issa to help.

At 10:20 P.M. on June 12, the indictment stated, Bashar and Issa came to Fatma’s house with a 9mm pistol by prearrangement with Mustafa and Majed. Fatma was sitting outside in the courtyard. Bashar and Issa shot her at least eight times, hitting her in both the upper and lower body, then fled the scene. Fatma was severely wounded and died soon after arriving at the hospital.

Mustafa is also charged with trying to harm another of his sisters just 11 days before Fatma’s murder. That sister, who is 20, enraged him by staying out one night until 9:30 P.M., the indictment said. When she returned, he grabbed her by the hair, but she managed to escape. He then chased after her with a knife.

All four men are charged with murder, conspiracy to commit a crime and weapons offenses. Mustafa and Majed are also charged with menacing. The prosecution asked that all four be remanded until the end of the trial.

Attorney Said Haddad, the public defender who is representing Mustafa Hayb, said his client denies “that he had any connection to the murder or desired his sister’s death.”

Mustafa did know there was a plan afoot to injure his sister, as a warning to her to mend her behavior, but nothing beyond that, Haddad added.

Moreover, any cooperation between Mustafa and the murderers stemmed from concrete threats that failure to cooperate would lead to him and other members of his family being killed, Haddad said. These threats precluded any possibility of complaining to the police or otherwise acting to prevent the attack on his sister, since “any attempt to change things would have brought his life to an end.”
All I can say about the lawyer is that he's clearly abetting his client's taqqiya, and is just as bad as he is. The four men who committed this repulsive crime should be locked away in isolation and the key thrown away.

AXEL ALONSO CLAIMS THE MUSLIM MS. MARVEL SERIES IS GREAT FOR CHILDREN

The UK Telegraph spoke with Marvel's EIC Alonso, who's proven himself as bad as his predecessor Joe Quesada, about the scrutiny they came under for the Spider-Woman cover by Milo Manara they're publishing, and the way their female take on Thor is drawn. Not surprisingly, he and the paper remain superficial about religion as seen in the Muslim Ms. Marvel series, which we'll get to in a moment. First:
The comic book world has long been dominated by male superheroes, from Superman and Spiderman to Captain Marvel and Iron Man. It’s only recently that mainstream companies like Marvel have started to create strong female characters, too. Think Ms Marvel, a young Muslim heroine, Black Widow, and the latest, a female Thor to replace the current male superhero.
Anyone who adheres to bad religions and belief systems can't be very strong as a thinker, that's for sure. Again, if they'd just emphasized her being Pakistani without focusing on religion, it could've worked better. But this is the new PC Marvel, and they'd rather focus on what they think is logical.
Marvel’s decision to allow a female superhero to wield Thor’s famous hammer has gone down well with fan girls all over the world. The fact that they're doing it without giving her an overtly feminine name (‘She-Thor’ or ‘Thorita’ were just two suggestions) is even more promising.
All of them from A to Z? I think that's a bit farfetched. How do they know several million women in the world solely demand a female replacement for Thor, and not a heroine who can stand on her own without being based so absurdly on the role of a guy whose name is quite masculine? It's silly to say keeping the masculine name hasn't gone by without criticism from any fangirl.
Axel Alonso, Marvel’s editor-in-chief, explains the idea came from the writer. But he says the Marvel team was equally enthused: “It wasn’t lost on us, of course, the power of a female Thor. The American comic book market has for decades been very much dominated by male writers and characters".
And it still is. Otherwise, they'd ask somebody like Louise Simonson to take up the task her great husband Walter worked on back in the mid-80s. But she'd probably want to work it all out with a path more faithful to past writing efforts that aren't so PC, and that's why today, they wouldn't hire her.
Alonso also explains that, although Marvel has no official policy, the company has been making an unspoken move towards diversity.

“Slowly we have made progress on that front," he adds. "We believe there’s an audience of women out there who are hungry for this and we want to make sure they get it. This is affirmative action. This is capitalism.”
Seriously, he, a leftist, supports capitalism? And I thought it was becoming a dirty word among some leftists, who prefer the term "free enterprise"! But is this really affirmative action? Not if they go out of their way to replace the male Thor in such a silly way, instead of taking the challenge of spotlighting Sif, his childhood sweetheart among the goddesses of Asgard.

Will The Real Islamophobes Please Stand Up?


There is much debate about the word "Islamophobe."

CAIR, and their enablers on the Left, are busy throwing the word around at every person who dares to criticize Islam, even when this criticism is directed at the most draconian of Sharia punishments such as death to gays and apostates.

Meanwhile, people on the Right get irritated by the word "Islamophobe", and make attempts to defend themselves against the use of the word, replying in some form of the following,

1) I don't dislike Muslims. I dislike the ideology of Orthodox Islam.

or

2) Islam is a Warrior ideology. It is reasonable to fear such a dangerous set of ideas.

or

3) I only dislike Extremist Muslims. I have no problem with "Moderate Muslims".

I think all of these statements are actually evading the truth of "Islamophobia."

Here's my perspective:

I am NOT an Islamophobe. I am not afraid of Islam, nor am I afraid of Muslims.

I accept the idea that war is a fact of life, and I accept the idea that Islam is War-like ideology which stipulates that non-Muslims are to be converted, killed, or subjugated under the Jizya.

I also accept that Islam teaches that gays and apostates ought to be killed. And I accept that Islam teaches that those who criticize Islam are to be put to death for "stirring up mischief in the land."

I accept that large swaths of the Islamic world believe in these ideas.

And yet, I am not afraid. I have multiple reasons for not being afraid. The reasons are really not the point of this essay. Some are spiritual. Some have to do with what I see as the mechanical realities of culture. Some are simply personal. But as I say, my lack of fear on this subject is not the point.

The point is, we who speak out against Islam are not the Islamophobes. We speak out because we choose NOT to live in fear of Islam. We are not afraid, and we demonstrate that we are not afraid by the very fact that we are willing to speak out.

So, who are the Islamophobes?

To answer the question, first we need to define Islam. Here's my definition:

  • Islam is a religion based upon the life and teachings of Mohammed as put forth in the Koran and the Hadith. 
  • Mohammed taught that Infidels are to be killed. 
  • Mohammed taught that the People of the Book are to be given the option of living as second-class citizens, and if they do not agree, they are also to be killed. 
  • Mohammed taught that gays and apostates are to be killed. 
  • And Mohammed taught that all Jews will be murdered on the Day of Judgement, when the stones and trees themselves will say, "There is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him."

So that is Islam. Islam may be more than that, but the weight of the above tenets is so great that no good deed - short of Christ coming back - could make such a weight bearable.

The world is full of Muslims who do not adhere strictly to these tenets. Our society chooses to call such Muslims, "moderate." I choose to call them marginal Muslims. I call them marginal Muslims, because as is true of marginal Christians, or marginal Hindus, they do not adhere to the Orthodoxy of their own religion, whether through choice, or ignorance.

So now, to the question of who are the real Islamophobes.

The real Islamophobes are those who are afraid of real Islam; those who are afraid of what Islam is.

Now, look around you. Who is afraid of what Islam is? Who is afraid to deal with Islam as it manifests itself upon the earth?

ISIS is not afraid to deal with what Islam really is. They come right out and say what they believe, and they lay their lives on the line in the interest of acting according to their beliefs.

The real Islamophobes are those who are afraid to deal with Islam as it is. They are the ones who continually obfuscate and refuse to see what is as plain as the nose on their own faces.

Marginal Muslims who choose to remain Muslim even though they don't believe in the tenets of their own religion; they are afraid of Islam. They are Islamophobes. The reason they do not convert is because they know apostates are to be put to death under Islam. They have good reason to be Islamophobic, don't they?

Leftist apologists for Islam are also Islamophobic. When a Leftist, who has not studied Islam, presumes to lecture the public on Islam, all the while contradicting the primary schools of Islamic Jurisprudence, the teachings of major Imams, the actions of ISIS, and the words of the Koran itself, well, then, those people betray their Islamophobia by refusing to acknowledge Islam for what it is.

They refuse to admit what Islam is because they are afraid of what Islam is.

They are Islamophobes.

And who else is afraid of Islam? Who are the other Islamophobes?

CAIR is afraid of Islam. The last thing CAIR wants you to know is what Islam is really about. The entire purpose of CAIR, and most other Islamic "rights" groups, is to obfuscate about the truth of Islam, so that the Infidels will not catch on.

CAIR is afraid that we Infidels will come to know the truth about Islam before the True Islam has gathered enough power for Islam to do to us what ISIS is currently doing to the Iraqis.

CAIR is afraid of Islam, so CAIR refuses to admit the truth of Islam.

CAIR is Islamophobic.

So we see those who accept things for what they are, and choose to oppose them anyway, those people are not Islamophobes.

The Islamophobes are afraid to admit the reality of the Elephant in the Room. They are afraid to put words to the facts before their very eyes. They believe any word spoken, acknowledging the truth of Islam, only gives Islam more power.

They are the true Islamophobes.

TURKEY WANTS A BACKSTAGE ROLE IN NATO

Turkey, already a facilitator of Islamofascism, is seeking to meddle in NATO affairs:
Turkey is the big Muslim power that sits atop raging conflicts in Iraq and Syria, so it might be expected to take a leading role in the NATO coalition announced this month to take on the Islamic State group.

Instead it has told allies that it will stay quietly behind the scenes, keeping its soldiers out of combat operations and even declining to allow NATO to use its bases or territories to launch air attacks.

The reticence has roots in two dilemmas: the Islamic State group holds dozens of Turkish hostages, including diplomats, and Turkey is wary of boosting its rebellious Kurdish minority in the battle against Islamic State group enemies in Iraq.

Turkey's position is complicated by its eagerness to uproot the Syrian regime of Bashar Assad, which led to tolerance of anti-Assad Islamist fighters taking refuge on its side of the Syrian border — and may have given the Islamic State group some breathing room in Turkey. More recently, it has been forced to confront the threat that the group posed.
Only to its own regime, not Syria's. We shouldn't be surprised if Turkey would want to take over Syria! Indeed, that's a vision doubtlessly shared by opposing Muslim factions, to take over the other's territory.

The only reason why Turkey is getting involved here is obviously because of the hostages taken from their side. It has nothing to do with any British or American hostages who've been taken by ISIS. Regardless of that, Turkey shouldn't be trusted to be of any help to NATO, and their involvement here could be very dangerous.

UNFREAKIN'BELIEVABLE: "NY Democrats seek citizen rights for illegal immigrants"

NYPOST:
Illegal aliens in New York could score billions in Medicaid and college-tuition money — along with driver’s licenses, voting rights and even the ability to run for office — if Democrats win control of the state Senate in November, the Post has learned. 
A little-known bill, dubbed “New York is Home,” would offer the most sweeping amnesty available anywhere in the country to nearly 3 million noncitizens living in the Empire State. 
It would bar police from releasing any information about them to the feds, unless it involves a criminal warrant unrelated to their immigration status. 
Under the proposed legislation, undocumented immigrants could also apply for professional licenses and serve on juries. 
The plan hinges on Democrats — who now control both the governorship and the state Assembly — wresting control of the Senate from Republicans, who oppose immigration amnesty. 
Bronx Sen. Gustavo Rivera, who is sponsoring the legislation in the upper chamber, said he thinks the bill would be in position to be passed “if we have a stable Democratic majority in the Senate.” 
He also likened his measure to the campaigns to legalize same-sex marriage and medical marijuana. 
“It’s something I believe in,” Rivera said Sunday night. “It’s something the state can do and should do. 
Democratic Brooklyn Assemblyman Karim Camara, the chief Assembly sponsor, agreed that taking the Senate was key, saying “The bill would have a better shot at passing with a Democratic Senate.” 
“I look forward [to] having a robust conversation about how significant this bill is.”But the GOP plans on using the proposal to warn voters how radical New York would become if Democrats take charge. 
Republicans are already referring to it as the “illegal immigrants benefits legislation” and will make the bill their poster child in elections in more conservative upstate and suburban districts. 
“This bill could pass if the Democrats are in charge of the Senate. They’re out of their minds,” said Sen. Marty Golden (R-Brooklyn). 
“This is astounding. This undermines our nation’s immigration laws and procedures.” 
Said state Conservative Party chairman Mike Long: “This is absolutely amnesty. It disregards the laws of the United States. It’s unconscionable,” Long added.
UNCONSCIONABLE.

UN-PATRIOTIC.

ILLEGAL.

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY ISN'T A POLITICAL MACHINE ANYMORE; IT'S A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE.

THE DEMOCRAT POLICY ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IS AIMED AT ONE THING: PERPETUATING THEIR HOLD ON POWER SO THEY CAN CONTINUE TO LOOT THE PUBLIC TREASURY AND HAND-OUT BENEFITS TO THEIR MACHINE.

IF WE HAD AN INDEPENDENT AND FEARLESS DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, THEN THEY WOULD INDICT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AS A CRIMINAL RACKET AND BUST THEM USING RICO STATUTES.

IF A LAW LIKE THIS PASSES, THEN WE CAN KISS THE USA GOOD-BYE AND SAY HELLO TO ANOTHER USSR.

WE CAN PUT A HALT TO THIS IN NOVEMBER.

IN FACT, IT'S NOVEMBER OR NEVER.


FEDERAL RESERVE SURVEY SHOWS OBAMA'S POLICIES ARE WRECKING THE MIDDLE CLASS AND DESTROYING THE AMERICAN DREAM

NYTIMES:
YOUNG families are better educated than ever before, but they are earning lower real incomes. 
The Federal Reserve Board’s newly released 2013 Survey of Consumer Finances indicates that the median family headed by someone under 35 years of age earned $35,509 in 2013 dollars. Adjusted for inflation, that is 6 percent less than similar families reported in the first such survey, in 1989. 
... The largest declines have come since the 2007 survey — the last one in which participants discussed their income in a year before the Great Recession began. 
The following survey covered income earned during the recession, and it was not easy to know how much of the falloff was a cyclical phenomenon that would disappear when the economy recovered. 
But the newest survey covered income in 2012, three years after the recession ended, and shows that most of the lost ground has not been recovered. 
In fact, the real median income for all of the age groups except those in the 35-to-44 group declined from 2010 to 2013.
REPEAT: MOST OF THE DECLINE HS OCCURRED AFTER THE RECESSION AND ONLY SINCE OBAMA'S POLICIES HAVE TAKEN HOLD.

IN OTHER WORDS: OBAMA'S POLICIES ARE WRECKING THE MIDDLE CLASS AND DESTROYING THE AMERICAN DREAM.

WE CAN STOP THE DECLINE IN NOVEMBER.

IN FACT; IT'S NOVEMBER OR NEVER.

WHAT DESERTION TELLS US ABOUT APOSTASY

DESERTION FROM THE ARMED FORCES HAS LONG BEEN A CRIME PUNISHABLE BY DEATH.

ESPECIALLY IN A TIME OF WAR.

IN ISLAM, APOSTASY IS PUNISHABLE BY DEATH.

APOSTASY MIGHT BE DEFINED AS DESERTING ONE'S FAITH.

ISLAM IS THE ONLY RELIGION THAT HAS THIS AS A BASIC TENET AND COMMON PRACTICE.

SINCE THE HOLOCAUST, SOME JEWS CONSIDER RELATIVES WHO MARRY OUTSIDE THEIR FAITH TO BE "DEAD" - IN A FIGURATIVE SENSE AND THEY SHUN THEM, BUT THEY DO NOT LITERALLY KILL THEM.

IS ISLAM, THESE "DESERTERS" ARE KILLED - OFTEN BY FAMILY MEMBERS WHO DO SO TO REGAIN THEIR "ISLAMIC HONOR".

I THINK THIS REVEALS HOW ISLAM IS MORE LIKE A MARTIAL CREED THAN A RELIGION.

AFTER ALL, IF FAITH IS AN ACT OF CONSCIENCE, THEN HOW CAN ANYONE BE COERCED TO BECOME A MEMBER OR REMAIN A MEMBER OF A CERTAIN FAITH OR CERTAIN SECT?

MUSLIMS WHO ARE CONVERTED UNDER THREAT OF VIOLENCE OR DEATH ARE MORE LIKE UNWILLING CONSCRIPTS INTO AN ISLAMIC ARMY THAN CONVERTS TO A "RELIGION OF PEACE".

A "RELIGION OF PEACE" CANNOT BE ONE WHICH THREATENS DEATH TO ANYONE WHO WISHES TO LEAVE THAT RELIGION; NOR CAN A "RELIGION OF PEACE" BE ONE WHICH USES VIOLENCE AND THE THREAT OF VIOLENCE TO GAIN ADHERENTS.

SUCH AN ORGANIZATION IS A MARTIAL ONE, NOT A RELIGIOUS ONE.

IT IS A GANG OR ARMY, NOT A RELIGION.

IT SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH.

WE DON'T DO SO AT OUR PERIL.


WE NEED MACRO-ECONOMIC GROWTH, NOT REDISTRIBUTION

FIRST A CLIP FROM BARTIROMO'S SHOW: WARSH SAYS WE NEED PRIVATE BUSINESS INVESTMENT TO PICK UP SUBSTANTIALLY BEFORE WE CAN GROW.

NOW, MY COMMENTARY:
THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS NOT THE ONLY PLAYER IN TOWN.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, AND THE EU AND CHINA AND PUTIN AND YES ISIS ALSO  GET THEIR SAY.

IOW: DISPARATE POLITICAL NEEDS AND GOALS ALSO HAVE THEIR SAY.

BECAUSE THE FED GETTING READY TO WITHDRAW SUPPORT, AND THE ECB IS GETTING READY TO START THEIR OWN QE PROGRAM, (BECAUSE THE EU IS SLIPPING INTO RECESSION), THERE WILL BE MASSIVE REDEPLOYMENT OF ASSETS GLOBALLY.

THIS IS COMPLICATED BY THE FACT THAT BECAUSE OF QE1-2-3, THERE IS ALREADY A MASSIVE ASSET BUBBLE.

SO INVESTMENTS ARE GOING TO FIND IT VERY HARD TO REDEPLOY.

PRIVATE BUSINESSES WILL NOT SURGE THEIR INVESTMENTS.

BECAUSE STOCK ARE ALREADY SO HIGH, BIG ASSET MANAGERS WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO MAKE BIG BETS ON TO IPO'S LIKE ALIBABA - FURTHER INFLATING THE BUBBLE.

AS LONG AS CONSUMER'S INCOME AND AND CONSUMER SPENDING REMAINS FLAT AT BEST, THIS BUBBLE GROWS MORE PROBLEMATIC.

I SEE ONE WAY OUT:

A TWO PART PROGRAM THAT WILL INSTANTLY RAISE INCOMES AND REDUCE COSTS/PRICES - THEREBY IMMEDIATELY STIMULATING ECONOMIC GROWTH FOR ALL:
1 - A MORATORIUM ON ENERGY TAXES AND A ROLLBACK OF ENERGY AND EPA REGULATIONS AND AN OPENING UP OF ALL OIL/GAS EXPLORATION ON FEDERAL LANDS. 
2 - A ONE YEAR MORATORIUM ON PAYROLL TAXES - THUS GIVING PEOPLE A 7% RAISE AND BUSINESSES 7% MORE TO INVEST.
THESE TWO MOVES WOULD INSTANTLY INCREASE SPENDING AND GROW THE ECONOMY - AND DIRECTLY STIMULATE THE BUSINESSES WHICH BEST SATISFY CONSUMER NEEDS.

REDISTRIBUTION OF SLICES OF A SHRINKING PIE IS A TEMPORARY FIX AT BEST; IT DOESN'T REALLY HELP ANYONE IN THE LONG RUN.

WE REALLY NEED TO GROW THE PIE.

EVERYONE WINS WHEN WE GROW THE ECONOMY - EVERYONE THAT IS EXCEPT THAT STATISTS AND THEIR CRONIES.

A PLAN AS SIMPLE AND AS RADICAL AS MINE - AND ANY AND ALL OTHER REAL STIMULUS PLANS -  WOULD REQUIRE A WHITE HOUSE AND A CONGRESS UNDER CONTROL OF THE RIGHT.

THIS CAN'T POSSIBLY HAPPEN UNTIL 2017.

I HOPE WE CAN LAST THAT LONG.

THIS NOVEMBER WE CAN TAKE A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

IN FACT, IT'S NOVEMBER OR NEVER.


FWENCH MARATHON: WINE, CHEESE AND MEN IN DRESSES

MORE PROOF THAT FWENCH CULTURE IS IN PERMANENT DECLINE:
BBC: France: Medoc marathon 'offers wine instead of water'
An annual race in France, which calls itself the world's longest marathon, is attempting to ease runners' pain by offering them gourmet food and wine on the way to the finish line. Le Marathon du Medoc - which takes place around Pauillac near Bordeaux on 13 September - sees runners dress up in Carnival-themed outfits to run the 26-mile (42.2km) circuit. Along the way they can tuck into a banquet of French delicacies from oysters to ice cream, washed down with glasses of fine wine. Participants get a rather generous six-and-a-half hours to complete the race, allowing time for pit stops at various chateaux lining the route. The hardest part for the runners, the Zapaday website suggests, may be to stay on a straight path. "Above all, I'm going to take advantage of the festivities," runner 44-year-old Bernard tells regional paper La Depeche du Midi.

UK GOVERNMENT OFFERS SHARIA LOANS TO MUSLIM STUDENTS

And back to Britain, we find the UK government dishing out sharia finance loans to Muslim students:
Muslim students are to be offered Sharia-compliant interest free loans by the government in an attempt to get more Islamic pupils to go to university.

Since tuition fees were increased in September 2012, many Muslim students have been put off continuing their education as it was expected the loans, which are paid back above the rate of inflation, would be used to cover the rising costs - contrary to their beliefs.

Following a four-month consultation, a new Sharia-friendly model which involves Muslim students paying a donation into a pool system instead of paying interest has been produced by the Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS).

The alternative scheme is expected to be introduced within the next three years, but BIS has denied it will pave the way for compliance with Sharia in a wider sense, saying: 'Sharia has no jurisdiction in England and Wales and the Government has no intention to change this position.'
Why bother to deny the obvious? It's already pretty clear sharia does have jurisdiction, because the UK government's enabled it. And getting more Muslims to attend universities will only ensure they become hotbeds for yet more radicalism. This is the public's tax pounds at work.

SHARIA ENFORCERS IN GERMANY

There have been sharia gangs in Britain, and now, there's some in Germany too:
Muslim radicals have begun enforcing Islamic Sharia law on the streets of Wuppertal, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, the state with the largest Muslim population in Germany.

In what government officials say is a blatant challenge to the rule of law and the democratic order in Germany, groups of young bearded Islamists — some wearing orange traffic safety vests emblazoned with the words "Sharia Police" — have declared parts of downtown Wuppertal to be a "Sharia Controlled Zone."

The self-appointed guardians of public morals have been distributing yellow leaflets that explain the Islamist code of conduct in the city's Sharia zones. They have urged both Muslim and non-Muslim passersby to listen to Salafist sermons and to refrain from alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, gambling, listening to music, pornography or prostitution.

A seven-minute propaganda video in German, entitled "Sharia Police: Coming Soon to Your City," shows a group of men led by a German convert to Islam, Sven Lau, roaming the streets of Wuppertal at night and pressing wayward youth to embrace radical Islam. In some instances, the men physically attempted to prevent young people from entering bars, casinos and discotheques; those who resisted were pursued and intimidated.

After local residents alerted German authorities, police stepped up their presence in downtown Wuppertal and also established a telephone hotline to enable citizens to report any possible criminal activity.

Local authorities, however, appear uncertain about how to proceed. [...]

More than a dozen Islamists between the ages of 19 and 30 are now being investigated on charges of illegal assembly. But the men have not been arrested and police say they have no legal authority to confiscate the orange vests, even though impersonating a police officer is a crime. Wuppertal's Public Prosecutor, Wolf-Tilman Baumert, says it remains unclear whether the men have done anything illegal. "The mere explaining of religious rules is not a crime," he said.
If they haven't been busted for their offensive hooliganism, then all this tells is they're showing weakness in the face of the intimidation. How do they expect to combat the growing problem then?

WASH POST/ABC NEWS POLL SPELLS DOOM FOR THE DEMS AND SALVATION FOR THE NATION!

WASH POST:
the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll ... : 
... the president’s approval has slipped among key parts of the Obama coalition — the women, youth and Latino voters most responsible for putting him into office.
Women surveyed said they disapprove of Obama by a 50 percent to 44 percent margin — nearing an all-time low in the poll. It’s almost the reverse of the 55 percent to 44 percent breakdown for Obama among female voters in 2012, according to exit polls.
 
His approval rating among women has slipped four percentage points from a year ago and 16 points since his second inaugural in January 2013, when his approval was 60 percent among the group. 
Among younger voting-age Americans, Obama’s approval rating stood at 43 percent. That marked an 11-point drop since June among those 18 to 29 years old. Voters younger than 30 supported Obama by 60 percent to 37 percent in 2012.
Meanwhile, support for Obama among Hispanics stood at 57 percent, which is down markedly from the first half of 2013, when approval among Latinos soared to about 75 percent.
 
Obama’s support remains solid among African Americans, with 87 percent approving of his job performance. That is a modest erosion from the 93 percent of black voters who supported his reelection.
WHAT ABOUT THE FUHREEEEEEKIN' JOOOOOOOOZE!?!?

JEWS SHOULD BE ABANDONING OBAMA TOO!

AND IF AFRICAN-AMERICANS REALLY UNDERSTOOD THAT OBAMA IS NOT ONE OF THEM, BUT A KENYAN-AMERICAN WHO GREW UP IN A MIDDLE-CLASS WAY AND NOT FROM THE GHETTO, THEN THEY'D LOOK AT THE RESULTS OF HIS POLICIES AND ABANDON OBAMA, TOO!

BOTTOM-LINE: 

THIS POLL SPELLS DOOM FOR THE DEMS AND SALVATION FOR THE NATION!


THANK GOODNESS FOR YAF'S SCHOOL PROGRAM

Thanks to Young Americans for Freedom, more than 250 schools around the USA have taken part in their special program for learning about the circumstances that led to 9-11. And:
If it weren't for the Foundation's student activists, most schools would ignore the anniversary of September 11. Even more worrisome are the professors who continue to blame America for the attacks. The Obama administration has even tried to change the meaning of 9/11 by turning the anniversary into a politically correct "national day of service." They would like us—and particularly young people—to forget who murdered nearly 3,000 innocent American men, women, and children.
No less worrisome is wondering how many of the same children will one day be learning in the same class as the crime-worshiping professors who blame the victims. I believe this is why YAF should make sure their program includes teaching students why they should be careful around ideologues who could espose dangerous beliefs, and teach why idol worship of flesh and blood humans can be ill advised.

LEV TAHOR WAGED HUMAN TRAFFICKING, FORCED MEMBERS TO TAKE DRUGS

Some new information on the Lev Tahor cult reveals they were as abusive as previously thought:
MONTREAL — Sûreté du Québec investigators got help from Interpol and authorities in Israel to establish a criminal case against the ultra-Orthodox sect Lev Tahor.

These are among several new revelations from search warrants unsealed by a judge on Wednesday. The warrants were issued by a Quebec judge to SQ investigators to search the homes of Lev Tahor members in Chatham-Kent, Ont., last Jan. 28.

The warrants allege members of the community falsified government documents, and engaged in human trafficking.

The community of about 250 lived in Ste-Agathe-des-Monts, Que., for about a decade before youth protection authorities were alerted to allegations of widespread abuse and neglect. The Department of Youth Protection in the Laurentians ordered the parents of 14 children to appear in court last November, but the community fled en masse to Chatham-Kent, Ont. Last March, the community relocated again to Guatemala, though two of its members remain in foster families in Toronto.
If those children are still in foster care, they're lucky, as the following should make perfectly clear:

GREG RUCKA SIDES WITH ISLAMIC VICTIMOLOGY

Besides the screenshot of Gene Ha's troubling retweet, here's another screenshot of a retweet by an overrated leftist comics writer, this time being one Greg Rucka, who retweeted an item from one of England's worst papers, the Guardian:
Sigh. As seen at the top left corner, Rucka retweeted this living-in-a-bubble apologia and victimhood, letting a serious downside of his show in the process. All on the eve of 2014's 9-11 Memorial. He actually buys into someone spouting taqqiya? I'd recommend he look to a better source on the issue at the Toronto Sun, and that he take a look at what Steve Crowder is quoting from the Koran in the following tweet:

So, who's Rucka going to believe? The word of a propagandist writing for one of the worst newspapers in the UK who doesn't acknowledge a single verse from within the Koran, or that of a guy stateside who cares about his country's safety and has the guts to cite one of the most telling verses from Islam's leading book?

And I hope Rucka's attending the 9-11 Memorial, because here's one Hollywooder who says liberals are turning a deaf ear and blind eye to 9-11. I don't think Rucka would want anybody to think he's just as bad as they are, would he?
