Defeat Jihad Summit~ F. Gaffney to Jasser: How can We Reform Islam?


February 19, 2015 New Gaffney
Why Muslims and Non-Muslims Cannot Reform Islam
The other day a colleague of mine named Martel Sobieskey, alerted me to YouTube video of the recent Frank Gaffney “lead” Defeat Jihad Summit. Just as in the past, Team Gaffney has no real long-term answers in winning this war. In fact this time Frank truly showed just how uninformed he is on Islam itself, and his straight out fear of naming Islam itself as the enemy

Sheldon Silver indicted on three charges


 

NEW YORK (AP) – Former New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has been indicted on three charges after being arrested in a federal bribery case last month.

Silver was indicted Thursday by a grand jury in Manhattan federal court. The charges are honest services mail fraud, honest services wire fraud and extortion under the color of his official duties.

Lawyers Joel Cohen and Steven Molo say they will “fight for his total vindication.” Silver has said he is confident it will come.

Silver had led the Assembly for over 20 years when he was arrested. Prosecutors said he had collected nearly $4 million in bribes and kickbacks since 2002 and disguised the proceeds as legitimate income.

The Democrat has since resigned as speaker but has said he intends to keep his Assembly seat.

Scientist Fired After Soft Tissue Found On Dinosaur Fossil… Finding Undermines Belief Behemoths Roamed Earth 60 million Years Ago

Finding undermines belief behemoths roamed earth 60 million years ago

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Attorneys for a California State University, Northridge scientist who was terminated from his job after discovering soft tissue on a triceratops fossil have filed a lawsuit against the university.

While at the Hell Creek Formation excavation site in Montana, researcher Mark Armitage discovered what he believed to be the largest triceratops horn ever unearthed at the site, according to attorney Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute.
Upon examination of the horn under a high-powered microscope back at CSUN, Dacus says Armitage was “fascinated” to find soft tissue on the sample – a discovery Bacus said stunned members of the school’s biology department and even some students “because it indicates that dinosaurs roamed the earth only thousands of years in the past rather than going extinct 60 million years ago.”

MEMRI: Hamas Al-Aqsa TV News Chief: During Recent Gaza War, Rockets Were Fired From Lebanon By Hamas’s Military Wing Al-Qassam Brigades


MEMRI

Special Dispatch | 5966 | February 17, 2015

The Middle East Media Research Institute
Hamas Al-Aqsa TV News Chief: During Recent Gaza War, Rockets Were Fired From Lebanon By Hamas’s Military Wing Al-Qassam Brigades
At a February 4, 2015 political conference in Gaza, Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahar, from the Hamas political leadership, called on Syria and Lebanon to enable the establishment of military cells subordinate to Hamas’s military wing, the ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, in refugee camps on their soil “so that they can run the resistance from northern Palestine [as well] and participate with us in its liberation.”[1]

This statement by a high-ranking Hamas official shows that the movement intends to open a second front against Israel from Syria and Lebanon, which it has thus far refrained from doing.

Following Al-Zahar’s statements, ‘Emad Zaqout, news division chief at Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV, wrote in an article titled “What is the Secret of Dr. Al-Zahar’s Statement?” that Hamas wants every conflict with Israel to be all-out, and to include attacks on Israel from its northern border as well. Zaqout even revealed that during the recent Gaza conflict, rockets had been launched into Israel from Lebanon by elements operated by the Al-Qassam Brigades.


‘Emad Zaqout (source: Paltoday, February 23, 2014)

Following are excerpts from his article:

“In the recent Gaza war, which lasted some two months, the Al-Qassam Brigades operated several groups in Arab countries bordering occupied Palestine, so that they could launch some rockets at cities in northern occupied Palestine and cause confusion in the assessments of the Zionist enemy.

“It seems that Hamas’s leadership thinks, and is planning, that every future war against the Zionist enemy will be all-out, meaning that it will encompass every inch of land in Palestine, and make matters difficult for the enemy. The leadership began preparing for this immediately after the Gaza campaign, and possibly even during it.

“In this context, ties were renewed between Hamas and Hizbullah, which motivated Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahar, a member of Hamas’s political leadership, to state at a political conference recently held by Hamas’s information office in northern Gaza that the movement is working to establish groups belonging to the Al-Qassam Brigades in Lebanese refugee camps close to northern Palestine.

“I believe that Al-Zahar’s statements were made in coordination with high-ranking Hizbullah officials. Also worthy of mention is the letter sent by the fighting [Al-Qassam Brigades commander] Muhammad Deif to Hizbullah secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah, asking him for crossfire in occupied Palestine from the resistance.

“The question is whether Dr. Al-Zahar’s statements also apply to the Palestinian presence in Syria, Jordan, and even Egypt.”[2]

MEMRI: ISIS Recruitment Campaign On Twitter: Immigrate To Libya And Guarantee Your Place In The Gateway Of The Conquest Of Rome


MEMRI The Middle East Media Research Institute 
ISIS Recruitment Campaign On Twitter: Immigrate To Libya And Guarantee Your Place In The Gateway Of The Conquest Of Rome
The following report is a complimentary offering from MEMRI’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here. 

As part of efforts to increase the Islamic State’s (ISIS) influence in Libya, operatives and supporters of the organization recently launched a campaign on Twitter aimed at recruiting new members from outside the country. Using the hashtag #Immigration to the Islamic State in Libya, they called upon Muslims to reach Libya and join the fighting in the ranks of ISIS there.

It should be noted that activity on this hashtag has intensified in recent days, increasing even more following the release of a video showing the February 15, 2015 beheading of Coptic Christians by ISIS forces in Libya.[1] Those tweeting in the campaign are relying in doing so primarily on ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi’s declaration of the Islamic State’s expansion to Libya[2] and his urging of Muslims to travel there and assist the fighting. Many of the participants in this campaign stressed the advantages of Libya as a major arena in the jihad against Europe thanks to its relative proximity to southern European cities such as Athens, Malta, and, primarily, Rome. One of the followers even argued that the distance between Libya and Italy allows Scud missiles to be fired at Rome, and even added a sketch to demonstrate his claim.

Below is a collection of tweets on the hashtag #Immigration to the [Islamic] State in Libya, encouraging Muslims to join the fighting in the ranks of the Islamic state in Libya

ISIS supporter Al-Gharib Al-Faresi (@alfaresi__25) posted a booklet published by the ISIS-linked Al-Battar Media Foundation. The booklet’s authors make an emotional call to all Muslims to immigrate to Libya: “Libya’s oases await you, its seacoasts await you, its deserts await you,  its saffron-blessed mountains await you, weapons of various categories await you, all these and more await you on Libyan soil.”

A Libyan ISIS operative who calls himself Al-Gharib Al-Libi (@ramk202216) sought to prod Muslims to go to Libya: “The Egyptian Army admitted helping the tyrants of Libya. When will you arrive, my monotheist brother, to help your brothers?” Al-Gharib Al-Libi added a map showing Libya’s borders, writing: “Oh you who wish to mobilize, look at the territorial breadth of the borders and their width. If you pray to Allah and take action, Allah will not let you down.”

 

ISIS supporter Al-Mullah Muhammad (@Aqsw2021) called upon Muslims residing in countries neighboring Libya and Sinai to arrive and help: “Emigrate oh young men from Egypt, Libya, Tunis, Algiers, Sudan and Mali, immigrate to the Islamic State in Libya and Sinai.”

Libyan ISIS operative Abu Mouadh Al-Barqawi (@asd_zxc__) highlighted Libya’s proximity to Europe as an advantage for waging jihad, noting: “The distance between Athens, Greece and Darnah is 589 km. The distance between Tripoli and Malta is 357 km.” ISIS supporter Qalam Hurr (@gl_2050) responded to him, focusing on the distance between Libya and Italy: “The distance between Sirte and Rome is 1250 km, like the distance between Jeddah and Dammam. In other words, a Scud missile can reach Rome. The distance to the edge of Italy [its southern border] totals 450 km.”


A Google map attached by one of followers showing that the distance between Sirte and Rome is within the range of a Scud missile

ISIS supporter Aghlab (@_3lab) as well referred to Italy noting: “If the news that the Italians intend to intervene militarily in Libya [is accurate] then they will become those who dig their own graves. The Libyans have not forgotten the blood of ‘Omar Al-Mukhtar [the Libyan revolutionary who fought against the 20th-century Italian conquest].” An ISIS operative in Libya who goes by the handle Abu Osama Al-Barqawi (@gsg999h) wrote: “Hurry up and guarantee your place in the frontline and on the gateway to the conquest of Rome, with Allah’s help.”

Writing under the same hashtag, Egyptian ISIS supporter Abu Khaled Al-Masri (@eng_fellix ) inquired about how to reach ISIS in Libya: “Whoever has a certification from the brothers [ISIS operatives], please inform us about [the country] and explain to us how we can travel to there.”

Following the February 15 release of the video of the beheading of the Egyptian Copts, the calls to emigrate to Libya intensified. Thus, for example, Al-Gharib Al-Faresi wrote: “Has Allah not healed our chests and the chests of all Muslims [in the beheading]? He slaughtered the worshippers of the Cross via our brothers in the Islamic State in Libya. So hasten to emigrate to Libya.”

Shibl Al-‘Adnani, who appears to be an ISIS operative in Libya, wrote: “[Foreign fighters], know that we are calling you. We’ve prepared the equipment, we’ve prepared the weapons for you, so hurry and come, you have no excuse to sit by idly. ISIS supporter Umm Al-Qada (@omarih_11) wrote: “Emigrate to the Islamic State in Libya. Your state has been established. Your Caliph has summoned you. What are you waiting for? When will you answer the call for mobilization?”

Codex Alimentarius Commission

While investigating the WHO and UN role in the biological weapons attack called the A-H1N1 (Swine Flu) pandemic of 2009, criminal intelligence (CI) agents from Canada and the US have stumbled upon a covert and sinister plan to kill off as many as 3 billion people by food malnutrition. The organization that is responsible for preparing for the murder of 3 billion people is called the Codex Alimentarius Commission. It was established in 1963 by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Their officially stated purpose is to develop international food standards to protect consumer health and to facilitate fair trading practices in foods. Today, there are 181 member governments including Canada. CI agents have uncovered the real purpose of this WHO / UN organization – to murder 3 billion people. How will…

The Very Radical Racist Background Of Michelle Obama


by Barracuda Brigade

michelle_obama-1.jpg?w=634

Freedom Outpost

I did some background checking into Michelle Obama and her links with socialists, communists and other high ranking radicals that wish nothing more than to destroy the United States as it is, and create a brand new United States! This may sound absurd and demeaning, but it is true. Some of the words spoken by Michelle Obama and her husband Barack Obama have come directly from a radical book titled Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky.
I’ll expose Alinsky’s background in future articles, but before we go too far, let us just start with Michelle Obama’s college days, since to find her high school history seems to be quite difficult. Michelle Obama’s maiden name was Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, and she was born on January 17, 1964. She married Barack Hussein Obama in 1992.
According to FrontPageMagazine reporter Jacob Laksin,

“In a [February 2008] interview with Newsweek, [Michelle] Obama reveals that she got into Princeton … not on the strength of her grades, which she admits were unexceptional, but thanks to her brother Craig, a star athlete and gifted student who preceded her to the school. As a ‘legacy’ candidate and a beneficiary of affirmative action, Michelle Obama was granted an opportunity that others more accomplished were denied.” The First lady got her college education due to her brother and her ethnicity, not her excellence in academics.
So why is she such a radical racist woman? It must come from somewhere in her background. Perhaps her parents were the ones who led her to this road of turmoil about racial prejudice. Let us take a brief look to see just what she was doing at Princeton while she was there and what types of people she had as her close friends. Some of Michelle Obama’s contacts in College were of the Marxist/socialist types.

To become UN Sec General Obama must ‘Solve’ the Existence of Israel


February 10, 2015
By James Lewis

President Obama is basically a Marxist of the “Third World” variety, which means that he lives in the faith that some elite political minority can rule first the United States and Europe, and then the world. In Washington speculation is rife that the end of the Obama years is only the beginning of a run for UN Secretary General, a job he can fiddle into real power, using leftist and Muslim regimes from around the world to support him. Obama’s ambition runs his mind and his life. He can’t face the end of power.

After watching the man for almost a decade, this is the only ambition that makes sense of his actions. It explains his consistent favoritism for Muslims, no matter how radical or violent. It explains his surrender to Iran’s nukes, and his constant collusion with the Muslim Brotherhood, now in active civil war with Egypt’s President El Sisi. It explains his comfort with the medieval war theology of Islam, which is also a world-conquering faith.

Like all grandiose narcissists with uncontrollable ambitions, Obama figures he can somehow resolve all the internecine warfare between Shi’ites and Sunnis, between Persians and Arabs, Turks and Kurds, Copts and Salafists, and finally get all “the fifty-seven states” — 57 is the number of Muslim states in the UN — to vote for him as a messianic UN Secretary General.

At the UN General Assembly, Europe will vote for him because the Left runs the EU with an iron hand. The U.S. will vote for him when the next Democrat becomes president. Three hundred Obama staffers have already come out for Liz Warren, who will follow Obama’s orders when he runs for UN Sec General. South America will vote for him in the expectation of “redistribution” of wealth from developed nations to their utterly corrupt, failed regimes.

Israel is the only thing that stands in the way of Obama’s grandiose ambition. At least in his mind.

MRC Alert: NBC’s Guthrie Lobs Softball to Axelrod On ‘Whether Racism Animated’ Obama Critics

NBC’s Guthrie Lobs Softball to Axelrod On ‘Whether Racism Animated’ Obama Critics

By Kyle Drennen

In an interview with former Obama White House aide David Axelrod on Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie tossed a softball on “whether racism animated some of the President’s critics.” She read an inflammatory quote from Axelrod’s new book: “Some folks simply refused to accept the legitimacy of the first black president and are seriously discomforted by the growing diversity of our country.” Without challenging the assertion, Guthrie wondered: “Is that you view and does the President share that view in your mind?”

Axelrod – whom Guthrie failed to identify as an NBC News political analyst – stood by his remarks: “Well, it’s clearly my view or I wouldn’t have written it, and I’m sure he feels that way to. Is that the main reason for the opposition to him? No. But has any other president experienced someone shouting ‘You lie!’ in the U.S. Congress or persistent questions about his citizenship? No. And I think that reflects some attitudes that are deeply ingrained in some people in this country.”

View video on MRCTV

Guthrie followed up by questioning Axelrod’s account of Mitt Romney suggesting Obama only won reelection in 2012 due to the black vote:

Quickly let’s clear something up. There was a bit of a controversy last week. You write in the book that when president – or excuse me, when candidate Romney called President Obama to concede on election night in 2012, that the President hung up and reported to you, “Oh, he said, yeah, we turned out the vote in Milwaukee….In other words, black people, that’s what he thinks this is all about.” Now Romney’s body man has said, “Wait, I was sitting right next to Romney, he never said any such thing.”

Axelrod doubled down: “Well, there were five people standing around the President when he got off the phone, all of them have the same recollection. Several of them have gone public since this started. I don’t think the President made that up.”

Guthrie began the exchange with a tougher question on foreign policy: “…the President has ruled out ground troops to fight ISIS. He’s been fond in the past years of saying the tide of war is receding. Reality seems to be telling a different story. Do you think he underestimated the threat of ISIS?”

Axelrod dismissed the observation:

Look, Savannah, when I look back to when I arrived at the White House, and you were there, we had 180,000 troops on the ground in Afghanistan and mostly in Iraq. The guy who was the architect as the worst terrorist attack in history was at large and all of his lieutenants. We had a credible threat on Washington on Inauguration Day. I wrote about that in my book. So are we better off today than we were then? I think we are.

In her second foreign policy question, Guthrie lobbed another slow pitch to Axelrod: “Speaker Boehner invited Netanyahu to address the Congress to argue for more sanctions [against Iran], something that the President doesn’t agree with. Does that feel like a diss to you?”

Axelrod used the opportunity to bash Netanyahu’s supporters: “I think this has more to do, however, with Israeli politics and the fact that Netanyahu has a very close election two weeks after his visit to Congress and this was cooked up by people who wanted to promote his candidacy. Unfortunately it’s at the expense, perhaps, of very delicate peace talks and I regret that.”

Guthrie failed to point out that a former top Obama campaign aide has been working for Netanyahu’s political opponents ahead of the upcoming Israeli election.

Here is a full transcript of the February 9 interview:

7:08 AM ET

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: David Axelrod served as a senior adviser to President Obama and he is the author of a new book called Believer: My Forty Years In Politics. David, good morning, good to see you.

DAVID AXELROD: Good to be with you.

GUTHRIE: We’ll talk about the book in a moment. But let me ask you about this, the President has ruled out ground troops to fight ISIS. He’s been fond in the past years of saying the tide of war is receding. Reality seems to be telling a different story. Do you think he underestimated the threat of ISIS?

[ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: Political Battle Against ISIS; Former WH Senior Advisor On President’s Next Move]

DAVID AXELROD: Look, Savannah, when I look back to when I arrived at the White House, and you were there, we had 180,000 troops on the ground in Afghanistan and mostly in Iraq. The guy who was the architect as the worst terrorist attack in history was at large and all of his lieutenants. We had a credible threat on Washington on Inauguration Day. I wrote about that in my book. So are we better off today than we were then? I think we are. But this is going to be an ongoing problem that this president’s going to have to have to struggle with and I suspect future presidents are going to have to struggle with.

GUTHRIE: Let’s talk about a different foreign policy issue. You’ve no doubt heard about this dust-up between the Israeli prime minister and President Obama, where Speaker Boehner invited Netanyahu to address the Congress to argue for more sanctions, something that the President doesn’t agree with. Does that feel like a diss to you? And you probably have some insight into this relationship between these two leaders, President Obama and Netanyahu.

AXELROD: Well, clearly they haven’t gotten along, they’ve disagreed on a number of things. I think this has more to do, however, with Israeli politics and the fact that Netanyahu has a very close election two weeks after his visit to Congress and this was cooked up by people who wanted to promote his candidacy. Unfortunately it’s at the expense, perhaps, of very delicate peace talks and I regret that.

GUTHRIE: Let’s talk politics, you are an expert on that after your forty years, as the book mentions. Do you think a Bush versus Clinton race in 2016 is good for the country? And I know you’re probably gonna vote for the Democrat, but I mean, in terms of having the same two families.

[ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: Race for The White House; Former WH Senior Advisor On 2016 Candidates]

AXELROD: Look, I know and like both of them actually. I think, you know, it is easy to say that, but let’s see what the quality of the race is. Bush is already out there speaking about income inequality, which I think is a great sign, and the problems of the middle class. Hillary, I think, will come out with some strong ideas on the same subject and maybe different ideas. And we can have a big national debate. I think the Bush-Clinton thing will fade away when the personalities come forward.

GUTHRIE: You write in your book that the question of whether racism animated some of the President’s critics was a question you deflected through your time in government. But you take it on-

AXELROD: Yes, probably in questions from you.

GUTHRIE: You take it on in the book and you say directly, “Some folks simply refused to accept the legitimacy of the first black president and are seriously discomforted by the growing diversity of our country.” Is that you view and does the President share that view in your mind?

[ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: President’s True “Believer”; Former WH Senior Advisor On His Time With Obama]

AXELROD: Well, it’s clearly my view or I wouldn’t have written it, and I’m sure he feels that way to. Is that the main reason for the opposition to him? No. But has any other president experienced someone shouting “You lie!” in the U.S. Congress or persistent questions about his citizenship? No. And I think that reflects some attitudes that are deeply ingrained in some people in this country.

GUTHRIE: Quickly let’s clear something up. There was a bit of a controversy last week. You write in the book that when president – or excuse me, when candidate Romney called President Obama to concede on election night in 2012, that the President hung up and reported to you, “Oh, he said, yeah, we turned out the vote in Milwaukee and he thinks it’s all about-”

AXELROD: And Cleveland.

GUTHRIE: And Cleveland. And he says, “In other words, black people, that’s what he thinks this is all about.” Now Romney’s body man has said, “Wait, I was sitting right next to Romney, he never said any such thing.”

AXELROD: Well, there were five people standing around the President when he got off the phone, all of them have the same recollection. Several of them have gone public since this started. I don’t think the President made that up. I don’t think Romney was trying to be ungracious either. But you know, we had just come through a long battle, they saw this through different lenses, and it’s natural to have these kinds of reactions I think.

GUTHRIE: Well, David Axelrod, the book is called Believer. You even talk about the time when the President hurled an expletive at you. I guess you haven’t live until that happens.

AXELROD: He didn’t remember that, but I did.

GUTHRIE: Okay. Thank you so much, good to have you here.

Andrea Mitchell Applauds Obama Insulting Netanyahu: ‘Take That, Bibi’

By Kyle Drennen

Minutes after President Obama took a jab at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a Monday press conference, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell cheered the put-down: “…he was asked about this very controversial visit by Benjamin Netanyahu two weeks before an Israeli election….And the President very pointedly said, ‘We have this protocol. We don’t invite leaders. If Angela Merkel had an election in two weeks she wouldn’t be here right now and my bet is that she wouldn’t have asked to come.’ Take that, Bibi.”

Mitchell touted liberals escalating the supposed controversy: “A gathering of Democrats, House and Senate, are now saying they’re going to boycott this speech. They see it as a political invitation by John Boehner….But no sign yet that Netanyahu is backing off of it.”

View video on MRCTV

Mark Landler of The New York Times agreed with Mitchell’s assessment: “Yes, he [Obama] took a definite swipe at Bibi there and suggested sort the diplomatic equivalent of bad manners. And you know, he also pointed out, just for the record, they have a deep disagreement on the Iranian nuclear talks. So that was a tough tone all around on the Israeli prime minister.”

On her January 29 program, Mitchell hyped the administration whining over Netanyahu: “The White House is furious, furious at Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and also a little bit angry at Speaker Boehner for inviting Netanyahu to speak before Congress, to a joint meeting of Congress without even consulting the administration – protocol would dictate that.”

Here is a transcript of the February 9 exchange:

12:55 PM ET

(…)

ANDREA MITCHELL: And the other point here was that he was asked about this very controversial visit by Benjamin Netanyahu two weeks before an Israeli election. A gathering of Democrats, House and Senate, are now saying they’re going to boycott this speech. They see it as a political invitation by John Boehner. The Israelis are now saying, “Well, Boehner told us the Democrats were behind it, we didn’t realize it was going to be this toxic.” But no sign yet that Netanyahu is backing off of it. And the President very pointedly said, “We have this protocol. We don’t invite leaders. If Angela Merkel had an election in two weeks she wouldn’t be here right now and my bet is that she wouldn’t have asked to come.” Take that, Bibi.

MARK LANDLER: Yes, he took a definite swipe at Bibi there and suggested sort the diplomatic equivalent of bad manners. And you know, he also pointed out, just for the record, they have a deep disagreement on the Iranian nuclear talks. So that was a tough tone all around on the Israeli prime minister.

MITCHELL: And the President said no point extending if we are – unless we’re close to a deal. Thank you so much, Mark Landler.

Poll: 40% of Americans Think Brian Williams Should Resign from NBC

By Jeffrey Meyer

In the wake of the ongoing saga surrounding NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams’ repeated lies about his reporting in Iraq in 2003, polling by Rasmussen Reports found that Williams hurts NBC’s credibility and thus should resign from NBC News.

Based on their results, 40% of American adults, think Williams should resign from his role as Nightly News anchor following his admission that he lied about being aboard a helicopter during the Iraq invasion that was forced down by enemy fire. The same poll found that 35% of Americans think Williams should remain with NBC whereas 25% are unsure about what his future with the network should be.

Furthermore, 40% of Americans also say that “they are less likely to believe the reporting on NBC News because Williams didn’t tell the truth” regarding his visit to Iraq.

While the NBC anchor still remains a popular figure, with 43% of Americans having a favorable opinion of him, the recent questions surrounding his professional integrity have significantly damaged the credibility NBC News and will likely persist unless he resigns as managing editor and anchor of NBC Nightly News.

After Nearly 10 Hours, NBC’s ‘Today’ Finally Notices Williams’ ‘Stories’

By Scott Whitlock

After offering nothing but silence on Brian Williams, NBC’s Today on Sunday finally covered the evolving scandal related to the anchor’s lies of being struck by an RPG in Iraq. The morning show only allowed a scant 20 seconds, however. From Thursday to Monday morning, Today’s reporters managed 20 seconds out of 14 and a half hours of possible air time.

In comparison, less than 48 hours after a scandal involving Chris Christie and a traffic jam broke, NBC produced 34 minutes of coverage. On Sunday, Today news reader Sheinelle Jones carefully explained, “A word this morning about our colleague Brian Williams, who has been under scrutiny over his recollection of certain stories he’s covered.” Jones never used the words “lie” or “false.”

On Saturday’s Nightly News, Lester Holt treaded lightly on the accusations, saying that Williams “has been under scrutiny this past week over his recollection of certain stories he’s covered.”

Despite a four hour run time, Today‘s anchors on Monday couldn’t even manage the 20 seconds. On Good Morning America, Amy Robach offered 21 seconds and noted that Williams has cancelled a scheduled appearance on David Letterman. Unlike NBC, she offered some bluntness: “…Several veterans called him out for falsely claiming that his helicopter came under fire during the Iraq War. NBC is conducting an internal investigation.”

CBS This Morning on Monday devoted 25 seconds. Jeff Glor noted, “Williams admitted he misled the public when he claimed on several occasions he was in a helicopter struck by a grenade during the war in Iraq in 2003.”

Transcripts of Sunday’s Today segment, Monday’s GMA and CBS This Morning can be found below:

SHEINELLE JONES: A word this morning about our colleague Brian Williams, who has been under scrutiny over his recollection of certain stories he’s covered. On Saturday, Brian issued a statement that says in part: “It has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news due to my actions.” He goes on to say, “I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days.”

GMA

AMY ROBACH: Well, NBC’s Brian Williams cancelled his scheduled appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman this week. Today marks the first day that Williams will not be anchoring his broadcast after taking himself off the air for several days. This after several veterans called him out for falsely claiming that his helicopter came under fire during the Iraq War. NBC is conducting an internal investigation.

CBS This Morning

JEFF GLOR: The New York Times says Brian Williams is on leave this morning from NBC Nightly News. Last week, Williams admitted he misled the public when he claimed on several occasions he was in a helicopter struck by a grenade during the war in Iraq in 2003. In a statement on Saturday, Williams said, quote, “It’s become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much of a part of the news due to my actions. I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days.” Williams was scheduled to be on the Late Show With David Letterman on Thursday, but has cancelled that appearance.

Rosie O’Donnell: Brian Williams’s ‘Lies’ Show Journalists Don’t Tell the ‘Truth’

By Scott Whitlock

According to View co-host Rosie O’Donnell, the ongoing Brian Williams scandal is an example of why Americans should know that “what you hear on the news is not always the truth.” While conservatives have been making that point for decades, the liberal O’Donnell seems to now agree.

While discussing Williams’s false claim to have been fired on by an RPG, the host attacked, “I think his credibility is being called into question, not only this instance, but over a series of exaggerations and/or lies or whatever you want to call it.” On Thursday, O’Donnell denounced Williams’s “blatant” “Lance Armstrong”-esque “lie.”

View video on MRCTV

Of course, O’Donnell seemed to think that untrustworthy anchors are a new thing. She cited the very liberal Walter Cronkite as the gold standard of honesty:

ROSIE O’DONNELL: Walter Cronkite, the most trusted man in America, he took off his glasses. He said, “There’s no way to win this war. It’s an unjust war. And what happened? People took to the streets and the Vietnam War ended. So, you have to really trust the newscasters to bring you the news.

The host came at the issue of media bias from the left, blaming the “corporations.” O’Donnell railed, “…The fourth estate is supposed to keep democracy in balance. And what happens? If the corporations, only five corporations, own all of the media, you’re only getting a view that enhances their financial bottom line.”

O’Donnell ended the segment by suggesting the internet is the only place to find truth. The View co-host, it should be pointed out, is also a 9/11 truther.

A transcript of the February 9 segment is below:

11:09am ET

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: NBC News anchor Brian Williams announced he’s going to step down for several days because of the fallout of his false claim of being shot down in Iraq. Now, some of his other reporting, people are taking a close look and he’s just cancelled an appearance on Letterman, which isn’t that surprising. But, you know, is this the right thing to be doing is to lay low?

NICOLLE WALLACE: You know, I worked in PR And politics. You get involved in how to manage a scandal. I think between it’s between Brian Williams and the viewers of his newscast, whether that endures. But I think there’s an interesting piece in the New York Times today by David Carr that raises this idea of an outside investigator. I think any organization under crisis or being questioned, the soccer league when there was a big scandal with the international – FIFA, I think is what it was called — you bring in a former FBI director or some outside body and they’re not doing that at this point and I wonder if that wouldn’t lend it a little more credibility.

ROSIE PEREZ: Stand up, apologize, and move on. I hope that, you know, the man put in a lot of years and it would be terrible that this incident would just wipe away an entire career. And, you know, I’m a forgiving person. You know? He admitted to his mistake and I think it would have been stronger if he said, I lied, I didn’t mean to, I’m sorry.

ROSIE O’DONNELL: But you have to trust the news anchors. You know, Walter Cronkite, the most trusted man in America, he took off his glasses. He said, “There’s no way to win this war. It’s an unjust war. And what happened? People took to the streets and the Vietnam War ended. So, you have to really trust the newscasters to bring you the news. And I think his credibility is being called into question, not only this instance, but over a series of exaggerations and/or lies or whatever you want to call it. And I think it should let people need to know that what you hear on the news is not always the truth.

GOLDBERG: Well, they kinda got that idea, I think. They knew that. You know? You know?

O’DONNELL: I don’t know. People seem to believe it if it’s on the news or in the paper. But, you know, if you can’t trust the guy saying it, I think it’s going to be difficult.

GOLDBERG: I think that’s why people have such a hard time with the news. That’s why people go to the BBC to find out what the news is or the McClair/Lerner Hour [SIC] on PBS. How old am I? Because people really don’t trust a lot of folks giving them the news because the news has now become an opinion poll as opposed to the news which is what we grew up. Which is why, you know, Walter Cronkite would very rarely put his two cents in about how he felt. But, you know, for the most part you knew what was happening, you made your assessment. You decided how you feel about it. Now folks say, “The whale ate the people and I just don’t think that was a good –” I don’t want to hear you talking about that. I just want you to tell me what happened. I don’t care how you feel about it.

O’DONNELL: Yeah. You know, it’s also because it’s corporately owned. It’s very different than the news. You know, the fourth estate is supposed to keep democracy in balance. And what happens? If the corporations, only five corporations, own all of the media, you’re only getting a view that enhances their financial bottom line.

WALLACE: But here’s a great counter to that.

O’DONNELL: Thank you, one person clapped. Appreciate that.

WALLACE: But a great counter weight to that is this is a handful of guys on the helicopter that actually did get shot down that revealed this on social media. They had no money. They’re veterans. You guys know how much money veterans make. So, the giant corporations that you talk about met their match in five guys on the internet.

O’DONNELL: Right. That’s why net neutrality is so important because it’s the only news you’re getting.

Bug infestation in child’s stuffed animal


Bug infestation in child’s stuffed animal

Updated:
Tuesday, February 10 2015

PORTLAND, Ore. (KATU) — A local mom wants other parents to check their children’s stuffed toys for signs of insects, after she discovers bugs in her daughter’s toy. Kinley is almost three years old, and loves her Cozy Hugs microwavable stuffed animal.

But her mom, Kamren Weiler, said a tear in the animal’s leg seam exposed a stomach-turning surprise: an infestation of bugs inside the toy.

“She went to sleep with it and played with it and had it in her bed,” said Weiler, who lives in Amity, “Yeah, it’s really gross.”
The toy was labeled as a “soothing, microwavable aromatherapy” product, filled with wheat and lavender.

If you heat the animal in the microwave, it emits an aroma of lavender and retains warmth. But the wheat filling also appears to attract bugs, in this case, most likely grain weevils, according to the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
Weiler said she dumped out the contents of the stuffed animal and saw what appeared to be hundreds, if not thousands, of moving insects. “I looked over at it on the counter and there were bugs all over it, just crawling,” said Weiler.

She scooped the toy, wheat and insects into a plastic bag and sealed it.
When the Problem Solvers visited her home, some bugs were still alive, crawling on the toy and in the grain. “My first reaction was, this is really gross. And then my second reaction was, I tore my daughter’s whole room apart,” said Weiler. “Where could those bugs have gone. In her shirt, in her clothes?”

Weiler is not the first parent to find insects in this brand of toy.

Monday, 9 Feb 2015

University of California, Berkeley attend an "open university" strike in Nov. 15, 2011 in Berkeley, Calif.

The University of California Student Association on Sunday passed a resolution urging the public university system to divest from corporations that do business with the United States.
The association cited companies that work in the U.S. and eight other countries “with governments violating human rights,” according to a UCSA release. The United States was included because of its drone strikes in the Middle East, prison system and immigration laws, among other factors, according to the resolution.
Other states listed:

  • Israel
  • Brazil
  • Egypt
  • Indonesia
  • Mexico
  • Russia
  • Turkey

VIDEO: Common Core School Assignment Forces Students to Make Islamic Prayer Rug, Recite Muslim Prayers


by Gina Cassini | Top Right News
A father in Seminole County, Florida, is stunned after discovering a indoctrination “lesson” on Islam in his son’s 10th-grade history textbook, a book that is also used as part of the Common Core standards across the state.
Ron Wagner, who said he admittedly doesn’t normally pay as much attention to his son’s school assignments as he should, just happened to read from his son’s world history book a statement which read, “There is no god, but God. Muhammad is the messenger of God.”
Wagner found out that his son is being indoctrinated in the religion of Islam in his 10th grade class from a history book used in school districts across the State of Florida.
Students were instructed to recite this prayer as the first Pillar of Islam, off of the board at the teacher’s instruction,” Mr. Wagner, who says he himself is not religious, told WFTV.
Wagner, with a little further investigation, found out that his son was given an “Islam packet” and was even required to make an Islamic prayer rug for the world history class.
Complete insanity, courtesy of your tax dollars.
WFTV reports (emphasis added):

Inside of the book is a chapter dedicated to the “Rise of Islam,” including prayers and scriptures from the Quran. What’s more disturbing for Wagner is that the first 100 pages discussing Judaism and Christianity are missing. The district blames a “defect” in the books, which are only a year old.

A “defect”? In the curriculum, without a doubt, but in the books themselves. Are they serious?

According to Wagner, Dr. Michael Blasewitz, who oversees the high school curriculum, said, “The Pillars of Islam are benchmarks in the state curriculum”
Wagner’s concerns prompted a district investigation that found the teacher never tried to indoctrinate or convert students.

That’s the same Common Core “standards” setup by former Governor Jeb Bush and funded by Barack Obama under his “Race to the Top” scheme to hook states into Common Core for good with cold hard cash.
“For it to be mandatory and part of the curriculum and in the textbooks, didn’t seem right,” Wagner said.

What Can We Learn From How Grandma and Grandpa Used To Eat?


Every successive generation seems to be getting sicker, with more illness and disability. This despite government claims that the science of diet has mostly improved from just 50 years ago. These claims are far from the reality the modern world and its population experiences. Our grandparents used to make their own butter, cook with lard, fry their foods, drink full cream milk and they still looked so healthy while living so heartily. How did they do it? For starters they ate less, but their food was also healthier. Today we cut carbs, remove fat, cook less, eat more, consume genetically modified, artificially sweetened, processed foods and spend most of our time sitting. See the difference?

grandparents

The trend becomes unmistakable once fat intake increases for a population.

Once that number passes 30%: countries with higher average fat intake have the longest life expectencies. Fat intake has been transformed in modern day to low fat or no fat, high sugar and processed carbohydrates.

Grandfather-of-12 John Golding, who runs a family farm outside Grafton in northern New South Wales, says food was scarce when he was growing up.

We ate less for sure because the food had to go around a big family. There were seven or nine kids in every family so you didn’t eat much at all. There were no ‘seconds’. We didn’t overeat and you’d restrict your bread intake because otherwise you’d run out. It was all healthy food. We always had a huge vegetable garden so we had cauliflowers growing in the winter time.

Science Says Calorie Restriction Increases Life Span

In Unhappy Meals, a piece for The New York Times Magazine, best-selling author Michael Pollan says we can all cut back.

The scientific case for eating a lot less than we currently do is compelling. ‘Calorie restriction’ has repeatedly been shown to slow aging in animals, and many researchers (including Walter Willett, the Harvard epidemiologist) believe it offers the single strongest link between diet and cancer prevention.

“Once one of the longest-lived people on earth, the Okinawans practiced a principle they called ‘Hara Hachi Bu’: eat until you are 80 percent full.”

Organisms from yeast to rodents to humans all benefit from cutting calories. In less complex organisms, restricting calories can double or even triple lifespan. In studies, animals on calorie restriction diets die at an advanced age without any diseases normally related to aging. In contrast, among animals on a standard diet, the great majority (94 percent) develop and die of one or more chronic diseases such as cancer or heart disease.

According to theresults of two previous studies, reducing calories activates the silenced information regulator genes, which prolongs cell life.

xbaking-bread.jpg.pagespeed.ic.u99SeQN2XHtMoBqztNh_

Processed Foods A Culprit

Farmer John says he and his wife Ollie, who does most of the cooking, rarely ate processed food.

We didn’t have any packaged stuff at all. When Dad bought this farm after the war, we’d milk two or three cows so you’d make your butter and custards. We were reared also on fried scones. We loved fried scones. Instead of baking the scones, we’d fry ‘em. They were beautiful just with butter.

In Six Rules For Eating Wisely, a piece for TIME magazine, Pollan says we shouldn’t eat anything our great-great-great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.

Imagine how baffled your ancestors would be in a modern supermarket … (most items) aren’t foods – quite – they’re food products.

History suggests you might want to wait a few decades or so before adding such novelties to your diet, the substitution of margarine for butter being the classic case in point.

Their promise was that margarine would prevent disease. People around the globe questioned this advice, especially those who have valued butter for its life-sustaining properties for millennia. Today we know that butter is light years healthier than margarine ever could be.

My mother used to predict ‘they’ would eventually discover that butter was better for you. She was right: the trans-fatty margarine is killing us. Eat food, not food products.

John, 79, eats everything but grew up on staples of rice, rolled oats and potatoes.

When mum was rearing the five of us while dad was at the war she fed us on a lot of rice because that was cheap. I loved boiled rice with a bit of sugar on it, but now I don’t have sugar

Pollan says the western diet has shifted radically from whole to refined foods, complex to simple carbohydrates, leaves to seeds and from food culture to food science.

Grandparents

Food Culture Is Not What It Used To Be

Governments here and abroad have been cautioning the public for decades on the dangers of high fat diets. Their claims based on “their science” concluded that it was best to avoid fat because of its extra calories – and saturated fats raise the risk of heart disease. This low-fat mantra has been questioned for years by clinicians and nutritional scientists – not least because it has failed to halt the obesity epidemic. The fact is, high-fat diets lower blood sugar, improve blood lipids, and reduce obesity.

The sheer novelty and glamour of the Western diet, with its 17,000 new food products introduced every year, and the marketing muscle used to sell these products, has overwhelmed the force of tradition.

Nutritionism, which arose to help us better deal with the problems of the Western diet, has largely been co-opted by it, used by the industry to sell more food and to undermine the authority of traditional ways of eating.

You would not have read this far into this article if your food culture were intact and healthy; you would simply eat the way your parents and grandparents and great-grandparents taught you to eat.

Our grandparents also didn’t spend all day stuck at a desk or hours at night on the couch. They performed manual jobs and rode their horses everywhere at full gallop.

Food intolerances were unheard of back then and no-one, least of all John, feared carbs.

They also didn’t deprive themselves.

Despite becoming a fast food nation, John says his diet has improved with age.

Our diet’s changed a little bit. We don’t eat fat or drippin’.

The problem these days is fast food. Bloody McDonald’s.

If people are getting big and fat, I don’t know why they keep eating. I can stand behind people (in line for meals) on a cruise and know what they’re going to order – greasy fish and chips.

If you want to give up something, I think it’s easy. Well it’s easy for me – it’s just determination.

Brown Bag Ban: Fed Gov Tells Preschool Parents No Lunch From Home Without a Doctor’s Note


banned-school-lunch

It looks like the days of trading half of your peanut butter and jelly sandwich for half of your best friend’s ham sandwich may soon be over if the federal government has anything to do with it.

A Richmond, Virginia mother received the following note, telling her not to pack a lunch for her pre-school age child.

Dear Parents,

I have received word from Federal Programs Preschool pertaining to lunches from home. Parents are to be informed that students can only bring lunches from home if there is a medical condition requiring a specific diet, along with a physicians note to that regard.

I am sorry for any inconvenience. If you have any questions concerning this matter, please contact Stephanie [redacted] the Health Coordinator for Federal Programs Preschool at [redacted].

Thanks,
Ms. [redacted]

Really?

As a family, we have made the decision to avoid a host of ingredients that are all found in abundance in school lunches. We don’t consume:

  • -GMOs
  • -Pesticides
  • -Artificial colors and flavors
  • -Preservatives
  • -Hormone laden meat and dairy

But this week at my daughter’s school, the offerings are:

  • Corn dog or chicken nuggets, tater tots
  • Beef tostada boat or PB and J on white bread
  • Pepperoni pizza or fish sticks with roll
  • Pretzel sticks with cheese sauce or chicken teriyaki
  • Cheeseburger or breaded chicken patty with seasoned fries

There is not one thing on that list that falls into our normal diet. Add a side of rBGH-filled milk and a corn-syrup laden “fruit cup” and you have a complete nutritional disaster.

Why should the parents be required to bear the expense of a doctor’s visit to get the required note to be allowed to send healthful, homemade lunches for their children?

I’m glad you asked.

It’s all about profit and control.

Because, you see, the federal government must have all the little children on board in order to subsidize the farmers, make the rich richer, and make the poor sicker. Throw in some Obamacare to treat the resulting nutritionally-driven illnesses and it is a win-win situation – at least it is if you own a food processing plant, a medical facility, or a factory farm and you’re not the ones eating that so-called food.

Agricultural surplus is used to provide a base of food which is provided to the schools free of charge. It is then turned into processed junk for the public school system while the food manufacturers profit. The National School Lunch Program, enacted in 1946, has a mission besides just feeding hungry children: to subsidize the agricultural business by using up beef, cheese, and pork. The school lunches are loaded with these artery-clogging ingredients, in the most processed forms possible. According to an article in the NY Times, here’s how it happens:

The Agriculture Department pays about $1 billion a year for commodities like fresh apples and sweet potatoes, chickens and turkeys. Schools get the food free; some cook it on site, but more and more pay processors to turn these healthy ingredients into fried chicken nuggets, fruit pastries, pizza and the like. Some $445 million worth of commodities are sent for processing each year, a nearly 50 percent increase since 2006.

The Agriculture Department doesn’t track spending to process the food, but school authorities do. The Michigan Department of Education, for example, gets free raw chicken worth $11.40 a case and sends it for processing into nuggets at $33.45 a case. The schools in San Bernardino, Calif., spend $14.75 to make French fries out of $5.95 worth of potatoes.

adoctorsnote1

The money is ill spent. The Center for Science in the Public Interest has warned that sending food to be processed often means lower nutritional value and noted that “many schools continue to exceed the standards for fat, saturated fat and sodium.” A 2008 study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that by the time many healthier commodities reach students, “they have about the same nutritional value as junk foods.”

Why is this allowed to happen? Part of it is that school authorities don’t want the trouble of overseeing real kitchens. Part of it is that the management companies are saving money by not having to pay skilled kitchen workers.

In addition, the management companies have a cozy relationship with food processers, which routinely pay the companies rebates (typically around 14 percent) in return for contracts. The rebates have generally been kept secret from schools, which are charged the full price.

So, lots of people are making money while feeding children nutritionally bereft garbage. People who don’t know how to cook are warming up processed junk to feed to kids who cannot afford anything better. That free lunch isn’t so free when you consider the high percentage of kids suffering from obesity and chronic illnesses due to their poor nutritional intake.

Public schools serve more than 4 billion meals every year — a number that would make many fast-food chains envious — and officials say all those lunches are contributing to the growing health crisis among kids. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity rates have doubled in children and tripled in adolescents since 1980, spurring an epidemic of type II diabetes, once considered an adult-onset condition. Obesity has also been associated with heart disease, arthritis, and certain cancers, and researchers have found fatty streaks in the blood vessels of children as young as 10.

“USDA needs to relate the current crisis in kids’ health to the meals that are being served, especially to poor kids, because that’s the population that’s most vulnerable,” says Antonia Demas, director of the Food Studies Institute, a child-nutrition group based in upstate New York. Because low-income children often eat both breakfast and lunch at school, “they get at least two-thirds of their calories from school each day, and they’re the population really showing an increase in the diet-related diseases.” (source)

As with anything the federal government touches, school lunches are cloaked in do-gooder benevolence, but they are a poisoned gift that benefits those who already have money at the expense of our society’s most vulnerable people: poor children. As our economy continues to decline, more kids will be forced to take these “free lunches” if they expect to have anything to eat all day.

So, now, at least one school wants children to have a doctor’s note to say no to the school lunch offerings of hormones, GMOs, preservatives, and grease. They must have the permission of a professional to avoid junk food. A parent’s good judgement is not sufficient, it seems, to make the healthy decision to provide a toxin-free lunch. Does anyone else see the irony here?

Kids are a target. The school system is trying to change the rules to force us to feed our children these food-like substances and to disallow us the right to nourish them as we see fit. By controlling the food that our kids eat, they are controlling their entire lives, right down to their ability to think critically, their future fertility, and their overall lifespans.

We are lathering our skin with petrochemicals. BPA is leaching into our food and beverages. Chemtrails and questionable farming methods are tainting the air that we breathe…it’s enough for a book, not merely an article. Additives like MSG and unpronounceable non-food ingredients are killing off our brain cells and triggering the growth of cancerous cells in our bodies.

And the result of all of this?

  • -Disease
  • -Obesity
  • -Lethargy
  • -Lower IQs
  • -Shorter lifespans
  • -Infertility

If it was only one toxic assault, or maybe even two or three, you might be able to write this off as accidental, something that just happened due to carelessness. But with all of the evidence proving irrefutably that the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe is making us sick, how can we form any other conclusion than the one that states, “This is a deliberate attack.”

All of the alphabet agencies that are supposedly there for our protection are merely arms of the giant propaganda machine. They are there to convince us that “someone” would put a stop to it if these things were actually bad for us. They are there to dispense a false sense of confidence in our governing bodies and to make us feel as though our health and safety is their first concern.

Moderation is not an option. We have to fight back through strict avoidance.

Think about this.

Would you willingly feed your child just a “little bit of cyanide”? Would you let them have a serving of strychnine “once in a while”? Would you purposely give them a cigarette just because you “happened to be out and that is what was offered”? Would you let them drink bleach from the laundry room as long as it wasn’t in an amount that would be immediately deadly and if it was diluted so that it didn’t burn their throats when they swallowed it?

Our politicians, government officials, and “protection” agencies are bought and paid for. They are at best, complicit, and at worst, the ones instituting this. (source)

A sick, fat, malnourished populace isn’t too likely to gear up for a resistance against the powers that be when it feels like effort just to go from the couch to the refrigerator. It’s game-on for the Great American Genocide, and today’s target is your child.

VIDEO: Former Secret Service Agent Blasts Obama and Calls Him ‘A Petulant Child’!


He is outraged that the secret service was blamed by White House for Paris no show!

Obama

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino blasted President Obama’s decision to blame security concerns for his decision not to attend an anti-terrorism rally in Paris.

“He knows there’s nothing the Secret Service can say. They don’t want to hurt the relationship so as a matter of decorum they can’t say anything,” Bongino said. “I imagine what they’re really thinking is, ‘Is this guy serious?’ It’s not an easy job. After the fence-jumper, morale’s not great over there now,

but he still says something that is so obviously not true.”

Hundreds of Muslims Attack Catholic Town, But They Weren’t Expecting This



Hundreds of Muslims Attack Catholic Town, But They Weren’t Expecting This
Because of political correctness, many Western nations are falling victim to Islam, having disregarded the warnings until only self-preservation is…
madworldnews.com

Winston Churchill certainly had Islam in mind when he declared that the “want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes…these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.”
Churchill was a harbinger of ISIS, having studied the Muslim conquests which resulted in the slaughter of 270 million non-Muslims, spurring the Crusades from the desperate Christian world.
Because of political correctness, many Western nations are falling victim to Islam, having disregarded the warnings until only self-preservation is the appropriate response.
This exact history was repeated in a desperate act on a smaller scale in the village of Chirakhota, Bangladesh, when a militia of Islamic insurgents attacked them.
According to Asia News, over 300 Muslims descended upon the Catholic village on January 24, expecting an easy takeover. However, the Catholics rose up, defending themselves, their homes, and their culture and heritage with bows and arrows.

School worksheet tells kids GOP thinks helping poor ‘waste of money,’ parent claims


WisconsinTest.jpg

A Wisconsin mother claims this quiz was administered to her 16-year-old son and his classmates in their 11th-grade U.S. government and politics class at Nathan Hale High School in West Allis, Wisc.

A Wisconsin mother claims her 16-year-old son’s classroom assignment last week described Republicans as opposed to helping the poor because “it’s a waste of money.”

The woman said her son, a junior at Nathan Hale High School in West Allis, Wisc., was asked, along with other students, to complete an assignment about different views on the political spectrum while in a U.S. government and politics class on Thursday.

The assignment listed a series of quotes and required students to identify which party affiliation best represented each statement.

The first quote read, “We should not help the poor, it’s a waste of money.”

The mother, who asked only to be identified as “Heather” to protect her son’s privacy, said he chose option “E” for “Fascist” because he “didn’t know what else could be the answer.”

When the assignment was returned, the answer was marked as incorrect and the teacher wrote in option “D” for “Conservative/Republican” instead, his mother told FoxNews.com.

Is Barack Obama Actually Trying To Help ISIS Take Over Syria?


That headline sounds crazy, right?  It must be untrue, right?  Well, read on, because you might be absolutely shocked by what you learn.  As you will read about below, the Obama administration has used al-Qaeda fighters and other radical Islamic groups in the past to topple governments.  And without a doubt, Barack Obama is absolutely determined to oust Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.  In fact, he came dangerously close to taking us to war with Syria earlier in his presidency before backing down in the face of overwhelming public pressure.  But what Obama wants to do in Syria has not changed, and he is using the same playbook that he used in Libya and elsewhere to get it done.

Of course on the surface Obama has “declared war” on ISIS.  He says that we must defeat them in Iraq and in Syria so that the group does not spread.  But when it comes to airstrikes, the Obama administration has had an “Iraq first” policy.  This has put ISIS on a defensive posture in Iraq, but this has actually encouraged expansion of ISIS in Syria.

ISIS is just following the path of least resistance.  Is Obama trying to discourage ISIS from committing troops and resources in Iraq because he actually wants them to focus on taking down the Assad regime in Syria?  Is Obama attempting to “herd” ISIS forces toward Damascus?  Those are some very important questions.  What we do know is that the size of the territory that ISIS controls in Syria has doubled since airstrikes began last summer

3,000 FSA Fighters Defect to ISIS in the Qalamoun Mountains

Up to 3,000 Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters have defected from the organization and given ba’yah (religious payment; servitude) to the self-proclaimed Caliph of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), Sheikh Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, in the Qalamoun Mountains of the Rif Dimashq Governorate – these fighters belonged to multiple brigades that formed the conglomeration of the FSA.

As ISIS continues to spread their presence on the border of Lebanon and Syria, many rebel groups have found this organization more appealing than their predecessors due to their success in eastern and northern Syria. The Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) – who fought ISIS in Deir Ezzor – has seemingly repaired relations in eastern Lebanon and western Syria. The 2 militant groups have been spotted working together during armed engagements with loyalist forces in ‘Assal Al-Ward and Rankous.

The FSA groups who pledged allegiance to ISIS are the following:
1. Liwaa Al-Farouq – Approximately 300 fighters
2. Liwaa Al-Qusayr – Approximately 600 fighters
3. Liwaa Al-Turkomen – Approximately 400 fighters
4. Liwaa Al-Haqq – Approximately 400 fighters
5. Kataeb Al-Mouqna – Approximately 200 fighters
6. Liwaa Matfareeq – Approximately 500 fighters
7. Suqour Al-Fatih – Approximately 200 fighters
8. Liwaa 77 – Approximately 400 fighters

we need no cell phone zones: Man on phone misses whale 2 feet away


text size Man on phone misses whale 2 feet away

Updated: Wednesday, February 4 2015, 01:09 PM EST

(ABC News)- This Instagram photo shows a man missing a humpback whale surface two feet away from him because he was glued to his phone.

The moment was caught during a whale watch in Redondo Beach, California, professional photographer Eric Smith told ABC News today.

“A small private sailboat maneuvered really close to the whales, and this guy on it was literally sitting in that position and never moved,” Smith said. “He could have been texting his mom in the hospital for all I know, but I thought it sucked that he missed such a wonderful moment happening just two feet in front of him.”

Smith said he had about five photos of whales with the private sailboat in the background, but the guy never got off his phone in any of the pictures.

“We’re all guilty being buried in our phones, even me,” Smith said. “You think life is better on your phone, but we’re missing what’s happening around us.”

Lawyers: Saudi Arabia Aided 9/11 Hijackers


text size Lawyers: Saudi Arabia Aided 9/11 Hijackers

Updated: Wednesday, February 4 2015, 04:53 PM EST

(AP)- Lawyers for victims of the Sept. 11 attacks say in a lawsuit that they have amassed new evidence that agents of Saudi Arabia “knowingly and directly” helped the hijackers. They say they have obtained sworn testimony from the so-called 20th hijacker to support their claims.

But the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington said in a statement Wednesday that Zacarias Moussaoui’s claims come from a “deranged criminal” and there is no evidence to support them.

Lawyers wrote in papers filed Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan that their claims are supported by an “expansive volume” of previously unavailable U.S. and foreign intelligence reports, congressional testimony, government reports and other information.

Saudi Arabia says results of the most investigated crime in history show no involvement by the Saudi government or officials.

Tell Advertisers to Drop Lying Brian Williams

In an explosive revelation, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday to Stars and Stripes that the story he has been peddling about surviving a March 24, 2003 helicopter hit in Iraq that grounded the helicopters was a lie. He stated for well over a decade that a helicopter he rode in Iraq was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade. That was false.

Not only has NBC told the story over the years, Williams had the gall to repeat the story last Friday in NBC’s coverage of a New York Rangers hockey game, a game that featured a tribute to a soldier that had provided ground security for the very helicopters Williams had claimed he was with.

Williams finally confessed only after crew members on the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook, part of the formation Williams had claimed he was with, said Williams wasn’t with the formation at all. The Chinook took small arms fire, along with two other Chinooks. The crew members said Williams arrived roughly an hour after the Chinook was grounded, and left shortly thereafter.

Even in his apology Williams continued to mislead.

Sign the petition below urging NBC News advertisers to pull out from NBC Nightly News until Brian Williams is fired.

How we start disinfecting Albany


I agree on all points Assemblyman Lalor. Nice job.

How we can start disinfecting Albany

By Kieran Michael Lalor

February 1, 2015 | 7:24pm

How we can start disinfecting Albany
Photo: Shannon DeCelle

With the departure of Sheldon Silver as Assembly speaker amid federal corruption charges, we have a duty to seize this opportunity to boldly and fundamentally reform state government.

First, we should cut the legislative session from six months to three and reduce legislator compensation accordingly. We can get the budget done and deal with any other major issues in that time.

Right now, less than 60 days of session are spread out over six months. And many of those session days aren’t days at all. They’re an hour or two of passing non-controversial bills unanimously or near-unanimously.

If each session lasted five or six hours, we wouldn’t even need three months.

With lawmakers in session for six months, they feel the need to justify their existence. So they draft bills to meddle in the lives of New York’s citizens and businesses.

Many of these seemingly innocuous but ill-conceived laws are unfunded mandates on local governments and businesses which add to the death-by-a-thousand-cuts dynamic that squeezes taxpayers and businesses.

The leisurely pace of the six-month session also gives lawmakers plenty of time to rub elbows with lobbyists, party bosses and the leaders of special interest groups.

The quicker we get our work done and get home to the people we represent, the better off the state will be.

WE HAVE A DUTY TO SEIZE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO BOLDLY AND FUNDAMENTALLY REFORM STATE GOVERNMENT.

Second, we need to limit the terms of state lawmakers.

One-third of legislative races in 2014 were uncontested. Elections are supposed to ensure officials are accountable, but this most basic check on power has been eliminated in much of New York thanks to gerrymandering and one-party rule.

There should also be term limits on top leadership positions and committee chairmanships to further dilute the concentration of power. Silver represents 130,000 people, just like each of the other 149 members of the Assembly. But over two decades as speaker, he amassed power that rivaled the governor, who represents 19 million New Yorkers. This is remarkably undemocratic.

Moreover, it takes some time to figure out how to profit from a leadership job. Silver didn’t start the alleged kickback schemes for which he was indicted until he was fully entrenched in the speaker’s chair for eight years.

Where there’s pork, there’s corruption. Legitimate local projects that warrant funding by state government should be transparently voted on by the Legislature, not paid for out of taxpayer funded slush funds controlled by individual lawmakers.

“Member items,” as pork was known euphemistically in Albany, don’t exist anymore — officially. To bring home the bacon, lawmakers use a myriad of innocent-sounding pots of money, including grants.

State grants to a mesothelioma clinic in exchange for referrals to Silver’s law firm were at the heart of the Silver indictment.

Similarly, disgraced former state Sen. Malcolm Smith is on trial for a bribery scheme where he allegedly would provide state transportation funding to a municipality in exchange for cash from a developer who’d get paid to build the road.

Economic-development funding, subsidies to corporations and special tax incentives are also used by legislative leaders to feather their nests.

Among the charges against Silver is that he arranged special real-estate-tax breaks in exchange for large sums funneled through a friend’s law firm.

New York spends five times more than any other state on this type of corporate welfare.

If we took all, most or even some of the billions in state-funded crony-capitalism programs and turned it into across-the-board tax relief, the economy would boom and legislators’ ability to transfer wealth to favored constituencies would diminish markedly.

Finally, lawmakers convicted of abusing their office shouldn’t be able to collect their state pensions. Fixing this requires amending the state Constitution, which now guarantees pensions.

While working through the multiyear amendment process, we should immediately pass a law that makes pension forfeiture a prerequisite for a prosecutor to offer a plea deal to a lawmaker charged with corruption.

Some will say these reforms are long shots. Fair enough — but two weeks ago it was unthinkable that Sheldon Silver’s reign as speaker was about to end.

Williams added that he hopes “our brave military men and women, veterans everywhere” know that “they have my greatest respect and also now my apology.”

Video: British Halal Slaughterhouse Of Horrors Exposed

A halal slaughterhouse in Britain has been caught “hacking” and “sawing” at the throats of unstunned sheep. Muslim ritual slaughterers wearing the traditional Muslim kufi skullcap and muttering the words ‘Allahu Akbar’ were recorded on hidden camera allegedly abusing the animals. Animal welfare campaigners said they know risks of stirring up anti-Muslim feeling in England but said that “withholding release of the footage would be a betrayal of our key mission to expose and combat animal cruelty.” The alleged abuse is bad, but by way of comparison is not as severe as the abuse at Agriprocessors glatt kosher slaughterhouse a decade ago in Iowa.

YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT “PLAY”: Gay marriage plays funded by taxpayers regardless of political views


The Golden Hammer
The Golden Hammer more >

By Kellan Howell – The Washington Times – Thursday, January 29, 2015

The National Endowment for the Arts awarded a $10,000 taxpayer-funded grant to a theater company in San Francisco to produce and tour a collection of plays advocating same-sex marriage called “Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays.”

Directed by Sara Staley and conceived by Brian Shnipper, the project is a “collection of plays by established playwrights created in response to the ongoing battle for marriage equality throughout the United States,” a copy of the grant award states.

The project has been touted by Variety as “a celebration of gay marriage” and features a slew of famous TV, film and Broadway actors such as Craig Bierko of “Sex and the City” fame and Tony Award winner Harriet Sansom Harris.

KATY PERRY PROMOTES DARK MAGIC AT 2015 SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom-Katy-Perry-Unconditionally-Moloch-Owl

A GREAT WAVE OF SPIRITUAL DARKNESS SETTLING IN OVER AMERICA

“When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.” Luke 22:53 (KJV)

In the recent years the Super Bowl, almost always the highest-rated and most-watched television broadcast on the planet, has given over it’s famed Halftime Show to trumpet the cause of the New World Order and the Illuminati. And as referenced in our opening bible verse at the top of the story, the Illuminati knows that it is “their hour”, and they are defiantly out in the open.

super_bowl_69793

So you wanna play with magic
Boy, you should know what you’re falling for
Baby do you dare to do this?
Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse
Are you ready for, ready for
A perfect storm, perfect storm
Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine
There’s no going back

Two years ago, you had Beyonce flashing the Illuminati Triangle Sign during Super Bowl XLVII, the year before that you had Madonna as a New Age goddess gyrating on a satanic throne, and last year had Bruno Mars shouted “Illuminati Now!” during his performance. This year, we had ex-Christian Katy Perry providing the “entertainment” for us. Perry, whom you may recall,famously renounced her Christian upbringing and has this to say about what her “faith” is like today:

I don’t believe in a heaven or a hell, or an old man sitting on a throne. I believe in a higher power bigger than me because that keeps me accountable,” she told Marie Claire magazine recently. “Accountability is rare to find, especially with people like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you don’t want to hear. I’m not Buddhist, I’m not Hindu, I’m not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God. I pray all the time – for self-control, for humility,” she told Marie Claire. “There’s a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying ‘thank you’ sometimes is better than asking for things.” source – Christian Post

So, let’s see how former Christian Katy Perry did compared to previous years:

  • Katy Perry opened riding a golden monster with glowing-red satanic eyes. singing the lyrics to her hit “Dark Horse”, partially quoted in the photo above. Read those words closely, it’s the Devil speaking, and he is coming for you if he can.
  • She performed her LGBT fan favorite “I Kissed A Girl”, leading as many young women as will follow her into experimentation with the LGBT perverted lifestyle.
  • Perry closed with another pro-LGBT song called “Firework” where she floated over the audience riding a shooting star with the LGBT rainbow as it’s tail.

The New World Order and Illumination agenda is being hammered into our children at a feverish rate, using catchy lyrics and a non-stop droning drumbeat with overwhelming power chords.

Parents, protect your children if you love them. All of this junk, every bit of it, is poisoning their minds and turning them away from God. Katy Perry is the perfect poster girl for the New World Order because she used to be a Christian, and now mocks the God she once served.

Just like Lucifer did as he was becoming Satan.

wheel1

The Superbowl date was February 1st that date coincides with pagan holiday named ‘Imbole’ more evidence some kind of ritual was being initiated.

Undoubtedly the most obvious occult symbol broadcast yesterday was that of the checkerboard floor pattern, projection mapped onto the stage at one point during Perry’s performance.

checkerboard-pattern

The mosaic design is closely linked to the Freemason secret society, a fraternity known for conducting strange initiation rites derived from British and French traditions ostensibly meant to create “better men.”

masonfloor

“The mosaic pavement is an old symbol of the Order,” explains Albert Mackey in his Encyclopedia of Freemasonry. “It is met with in the earliest Rituals of the eighteenth century. It is classed among the ornaments of the Lodge in combination with the indented tassel and the blazing star. Its parti-colored stones of black and white have been readily and appropriately interpreted as symbols of the evil and good of human life.”

For centuries, Freemasons have entrenched themselves in politics, the judicial system, pop culture and other positions of influence, but their secretive nature always bore speculation.

On top of that, Perry has actually admitted that she would like to join the illuminati.

“Listen,” she said in an interview with Rolling Stone, “if the Illuminati exist, I would like to be invited! I see all that shit, and I’m like, ‘Come on, let me in! I want to be in the club!’ I have no idea what it is. It sounds crazy.

Is he as crooked as Silver too? Heastie elected as Assembly Speaker


Heastie elected as Assembly Speaker

Updated: Tuesday, February 3 2015, 05:44 PM EST

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The New York state Assembly has elected Bronx Assemblyman Carl Heastie as its speaker, making him the first African-American to lead the body.

The Assembly chose the Democrat on Tuesday. He succeeds longtime Speaker Sheldon Silver, who resigned in the face of federal corruption charges.

The 47-year-old Heastie is a former budget analyst in the New York City Comptroller’s office. He was first elected in 2000 and has chaired the Assembly’s Labor Committee for the past two years.

Heastie has vowed to pursue ethics reforms to tighten the rules on legislators’ outside incomes.

That’s a central issue in the case against Silver, who is charged with taking nearly $4 million in kickbacks and payoffs. Silver says he expects to be exonerated and is keeping his Assembly seat.

How long will these thugs commit murder and mayhem while the leaders of the free world stand by and do nothing but claim, “This has nothing to do with Islam”? “IS […]

Georgetown U organized, paid for State Dept/Muslim Brotherhood meetup
It isn’t clear whether or not the Saud-funded Islamic apologist John Esposito was directly involved in this, but it is consistent with positions he has taken. He has called Muslim Brotherhood Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who advocates jihad suicide bombings and has prayed that Allah would destroy kill all the Jews, a champion of a “reformist […]

Montreal: Muslim cleric with jihad ties denied permit for Islamic center
This is “just one person,” we’re told. “He has preached at the St-Jean-sur-Richelieu mosque attended by Martin Couture-Rouleau, the Muslim convert who killed warrant officer Patrice Vincent in October.” Has that mosque been investigated? “Chaoui was also the leader of a Muslim association at Laval University. One of that association’s members, Chiheb Esseghaier, is about […]

State Department refuses to say if Taliban attack on Americans was a terrorist attack

State Department refuses to say if Taliban attack on Americans was a terrorist attack
The Obama Administration doesn’t want to acknowledge that the Taliban is a terrorist group, because it knows that with the reduction of the American presence in Afghanistan will come an increase in the Taliban’s power. The more Americans remember that we went in there to fight the Taliban, the more the whole enterprise will look […]

Jihad murderer recorded terror attack on Parisian kosher grocery
This has happened before in France: Mohamed Merah, who committed a jihad massacre at a Jewish school in Toulouse, filmed his murder of an eight-year-old girl. These jihad videos apparently mean big box office in certain communities. And where might those communities be? “Official: Gunman recorded terror attack on Parisian kosher grocery,” by Paul Cruickshank, […]

You Can’t Talk Sense to a Shotgun
You Can’t Talk Sense to a Shotgun by Michael Devolin “The fight would continue, as it had in the Crusades, until the injustice was completely removed. By imposing partition, the United Nations would virtually precipitate Palestine into a bloodbath.” –Jamal Husseini, 1947 The above statement was addressed to the UN General Assembly regarding the establishment […]

France: 8-year-old Muslim says, “I am with the terrorists”
“I said, my son, do you know what terrorism is. He said, ‘No,’” the father, Mohamed Kebabsa, said later on French television. He said he told his son the killings were “barbaric … not an act of Islam.” But then where did the lad learn this? In any case, as Jihad Watch reader Bill, who […]

Al-Qaeda in Yemen says France now #1 enemy in “war on Islam”
This is because the cartoons are the worst thing. The U.S. may have killed Awlaki and bin Laden, and conducted what Ibrahim al-Rubaish probably thinks of as “wars against Islam” in Iraq and Afghanistan, but the U.S. has indeed been weakened in recent years. Weakened to the extent that France is a more formidable military […]

Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35

January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]
CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or
treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic
problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
