Bruce Jenner symbolizes the decline of the American male

Bruce Jenner

Bruce Jenner in many ways symbolizes what has occurred to the image of the American male the last few decades. Once an iconic symbol of the all American jock, Jenner has become a a joke by transforming into a woman.

Whether or not Olympic legend Bruce Jenner becomes its new champion, the transgender-rights movement is making remarkable strides on many fronts — ranging from mass-media visibility to legal protections. Yet despite the gains, activists say many transgender Americans, far more so than gays and lesbians, remain vulnerable to violence, discrimination and lack of understanding.

“We see transgender rights as the next wave of the work we need to do, after marriage equality,” said Katherine Franke, director of Columbia Law School’s Center for Gender and Sexuality Law.

“Getting protections on paper is important,” she said. “But the day-to-day lives of many transgender people won’t be affected — they’re unemployed, they’re experiencing violence in the streets, in shelters, in schools.”

[….]

His mother, Esther Jenner, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that she had spoken with her son about his private and public journey.

“He said, ‘I want to be honest about my identity, and I know this is coming out in the press,'” Esther Jenner said. “He started by saying, ‘We need to have a long, serious talk.’ I am at peace with what he is and what he’s doing.”

[….]

Depending on how Jenner’s story is presented and received, the revelation that a lauded athlete and member of one of the nation’s most visible families is transgender could be comparable to the cultural shifts that accompanied the news that movie star Rock Hudson was gay and died of AIDS-related complications and that basketball great Magic Johnson, a heterosexual, was HIV-positive.

Bruce Jenner’s transformation corresponds to what has occurred to the image of the American male. Once portrayed as as masculine and strong, the image is now that of a hipster wuss. like pajama boy.

Bruce Jenner mirrors the decline and fall of the American male. Once a strong jock, now transformed into a woman.

Belief In Global Warming Is A Threat To Our National Security

Political Cartoons by Glenn Foden

A couple of days ago, I wrote a post which highlighted the dangers of forcing law enforcement authorities to misappropriate resources by investigating fallacious reports alleging criminal activity. Unfortunately, the Liberal practice of deflecting attention from real problems and towards make believe problems does not end at the borders of law enforcement. It continues into just about every other aspect of our societal existence. The most dangerous of those places of course, at least from an existential point of view, is our National Security.

While we all thought this scene from the movie, “Up,” was cute,

I think we can all agree that it’s no way to run a railroad.

The day before Barack Obama’s most recent bit of Kabuki Theater, AKA this year’s State of The Union Address, NASA and the NOAA trumpeted their, “finding,” that 2014 was the warmest year, ever! You remember 2014 don’t you. Some of us recognize it as the year that ended a month and a half ago. It’s also the year when we first heard the phrase, “Polar Vortex.” That was the Environmentalist’s way of explaining to those of us who make up the sloped forehead, knuckle dragging, anti-science crowd, why it was so freaking cold from mid December through mid April. I also, possessing an adult memory and all, remember bitching about how there was a palpable lack of good swimming days over the summer, seeing as how that season was also freakishly cool as well. So, and I’m only asking the question here, when exactly was it the warmest year ever?

As it turns out, I wasn’t the only one who found the claim to be suspicious. About ten minutes after the politicos at NASA and the NOAA made the claim, real scientists began refuting it. The purpose of the lie however achieved its objective, which was to bolster Barack Obama’s poll numbers for his theatrical performance, and convince Americans, if only for a day or two, that our big problem is with Global Warming, and not with those Islamic Thugs hell bent on waging a war against us.

Of course, lost in all of those refutations linked to above is the small fact that both NASA and the NOAA have been caught recently actually fudging the very data that they’d used to confirm those computer models that predict the demise of all life on our Planet to begin with. The official purpose for fudging the data? Glad you’ve asked. It of course, and you really can’t make this stuff up, was so that the confirmation bias used in the predictive models created to make the case that we’re doomed would actually reflect that doom, rather than the reality that the whole thing is a con game with us, meaning you and me, cast in the role of the mark.

Get that? They created a theory based solely on a computer model, then fudged data to confirm the computer model, and told us to be scared because the real data was somehow flawed when it didn’t confirm the computer’s predictions, which just has to be right, because science.

As important as the whole scam is however, is the reason behind the scam, as well as what other nefarious purposes it has become useful for. Yesterday, I was literally inundated with snippets of President Zero’s Vox interview. Apparently, The Bamster sat down with the folks at hard core lefty talking points dissemination central, and managed somehow, to cause them to scratch their heads with his refusal to accept reality. According to the Obama Administration, Global Warming is having a greater effect upon the daily lives of Americans than any other threat faced by our nation today. So, let ISIS alone you riders of the proverbial, “High Horse,” because not only was Islamic Aggression defeated by those evil Crusades 1000 years ago, (which by the way was the actual reason why those wars were waged,) but whether we know it or not, Capitalism threatens our very existence today, or something.

Never mind the fact that every other period of warming throughout world history had heralded wild expansions in economic activity, improvements in living standards for all of man kind, and unprecedented wealth creation. It is a make believe danger which necessitates our very real misappropriation of considerable resources, so that we may pretend to thwart for the good of the Unicorn infested Universe inhabited by our man child President, said make believe danger. What should worry you is that our Chief Executive has made it an absolute point, and he’s not even bothering with any pretense any longer, to deflect our national attention away from real danger in order to scare us with something completely fabricated. Each drone used by the EPA to fly over a farmer’s private property in search of some new puddle to protect after a rain storm is one less drone available to fly over territory controlled by ISIS to protect Americans against maniacs who’ve made human sacrifice a part of their Friday religious ritual.

But hey, why worry so much about what reality holds? All we really need to do to confront our problems in the Unicorn infested Universe is tweet out some cleverly worded hashtag. This is of course preferable to those violent solutions which as any fool will tell you, only begets violence in return. Just ask anyone who’s met a member of the Religion of Peace lately how true that particular bit of sophistry happens to be. Will the last free American please turn out the lights?

Obama accused of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ at International Criminal Court

by Iron Fist ( 121 Comments › )
Filed under Barack Obama, Democratic Party, Islam at February 12th, 2015 - 7:00 am

This is interesting. You won’t hear about this on the evening news, but it sounds like Egypt has had enough of Obama:

According to Egyptian newspaper El Watan, a group of Egyptian lawyers has submitted a complaint charging U.S. president Barrack Hussein Obama with crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court.

The complaint charges Obama of being an accessory to the Muslim Brotherhood, which incited widespread violence in Egypt both before and after the June 30 Revolution.

Along with Obama, the complaint reproduced by El Watan mentions several Brotherhood members by name, beginning with the leader of the organization Muhammad Badie, and other top ranking leaders such as Mohamed al-Beltagy, Essam al-Erian, and Safwat Hegazi, adding that “Obama cooperated, incited, and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes against humanity in the period from 3/7/2013-8/18/2013, in the Arab Republic of Egypt.”

According to the published text, the complaint begins by quoting Article 7/1 of the Statute of the International Criminal Court, titled “Crimes against humanity,” which is reproduced below:

In six years, Obama has gone from winning the Nobel Peace Prize for simply being fabulous (and black) to being charged with crimes against humanity in the ICC. Lovely. All the shiny has worn off of the Left’s Tin God. Obama is no longer the Chicago Jesus®. He is simply a man, and a man who is either incapable of fulfilling the duties of the office to which he has been elected, or is deliberately abdicating those responsibilities in favor of supporting the enemies of civilization. Personally, I think it is the latter. It goes on:

Next, the complaint shows how Muslim Brotherhood leadership violated some of the above definitions, for example, by torturing, mutilating, raping, and killing Egyptians in their “sit in” camps (first reported here), with a highlight on the role the Brotherhood played in inciting violence and the killing of peaceful protesters around Itthadiya Palace back in December.

Above and beyond the accusations of crimes against humanity that the lawyer-drafted complaint cited by El Watan levels against the Brotherhood, one need only look to the fate of Egypt’s Christian minority, who were especially targeted by the Muslim Brotherhood—and thus, by extension, their supporter, Obama—to see numerous examples of nearly every aforementioned definition of crimes against humanity, as follows:

Obama was quick to draw a false equivalence between Christianity and Islam the other day, but he completely ignored the persecution of Christians by Islamists all over the world, and especially in Egypt. His support of the Muslim Brotherhood through this chapter in Egyptian history is shameful. The linked article goes into some detail about how Christians were persecuted by Islamists under the Morsi Regime. Here is the summation:

In short, by simply focusing on the plight of Egypt’s Christians, almost every criterion found under the category of “crimes against humanity”—including murder, extermination, deportation, torture, rape, disappearance, apartheid and religious persecution—are met.

Only one is necessary for the charge to stick.

As for the Obama administration’s support for the Brotherhood, if most Americans are clueless or indifferent about it, average Egyptians have long known and resented it—hence the many large placards and signs held during the June 30 Revolution calling on Obama to stop supporting terrorism and calling on Americans to wake up.

One need only follow the words and deeds of Anne Patterson, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Hillary Clinton, et. al. to know that the U.S president is a firm supporter of the crimes-against-humanity-committing Muslim Brotherhood.

Of course, whatever the merits of El Watan’s report—here is another English-language article talking about apparently a different complaint of crimes against humanity leveled against Obama by Coptic activists—all these complaints seem futile, as the U.S. is not a signatory to the International Criminal Court.

We are not signatories to the ICC (and shouldn’t be), so in a way this is futile, but it show the frustration that the real Moderate Muslims feel when confronted with our President. El Sisi appears to be the real deal when you are looking for Moderate Muslims. HE appears to truly want Islam to peacefully coexist with the other religions of the world. Odds are the Muslims will kill him, and he probably knows that. A brave man. He stands in stark contrast to the man that is currently “leading” this nation.

Another Reason To Hate Awards Shows.

by Flyovercountry ( 89 Comments › )
Filed under Hipsters, Marxism, Progressives at February 11th, 2015 - 7:00 am

As far as those self aggrandizing Hollyweird award parties go, I usually hold them in the same esteem as the Super Bowl Half Time silliness. Which pretty much means it is usually time I reserve for licking stamps, cleaning hair out of my comb, or perhaps the all important task of organizing my dog’s Linkedin contact list. I really couldn’t care less about what our show people think of themselves. What they think of me, someone whom they’ve never, met matters even less.

Yet for some reason, every time we see a sporting event on television anymore, we get the teary eyed players of the NFL or NBA pontificating on how you and I need to work on our morals and stop all of the Raping, Pillaging, and other aggressive behaviors that they’ve exhibited pretty much forever. The endless PSA’s from the entertainment crowd are just as annoying, if not more so. There’s nothing quite like a devil worshiping junky telling me that I need to drive a car that uses less of those evil fossil fuels lest I cause the planet to burn, while they travel about the globe aboard a private Gulfstream V.

I wasn’t watching the latest example of entertainment’s self congratulatory reason to get me to hate them even more, so I missed this on Sunday. Luckily, someone at the White House recorded it, and actually thought it would be a good idea to put it up on their own website, rather than hiding it as most people try to do with embarrassing tidbits which so richly exemplify the lack of serious thought. For Barack Obama you see, can not allow for any group to participate in self aggrandizement without showing off his only skill, reading off of a teleprompter.

Ordinarily, I’m all for a President interjecting himself into a piece of highly publicized bit of entertainment in order to steal some much neglected attention which he deserves. Jimmy Carter’s piece of brilliance, pushing his way past Joe Greene during the presentation of the Lombardi Trophy after the 1979 season championship, only to have then commissioner Pete Rozelle lift the same trophy over the comically small soon to be Ex-President’s head, is still etched upon my mind.

At least however, Carter didn’t use his fish out of water moment in order to play politics. He left the promulgation of his disastrous policies up to those moments when politicking was at least marginally expected. Not so for the Bamster, who views Orwell’s Big Brother not as something really creepy that we should all be guarding against our Government becoming, but rather as something that he’s aspiring to.

And what was so important in President Zero’s mind that he felt the need to interrupt someone else’s party? Why it was the further pimping out of the, “All American men are rapists and violent,” meme. At least he’s sought help from the make believe experts this time, in order to solicit help for his make believe problem. Now, I realize that I may have upset some of you for pointing out that the problem is make believe, so here are some real statistics to back that up.

Click here to dispel the myth.

Click here to further dispel the myth.

It gets even worse than that however. There has only ever been one peer reviewed study on the subject of false rape allegations. Please click here to read it. As it turns out, a full 41% of all rape allegations have been completely fabricated. So, far from a rape culture in America, we actually have a falsely accuse men of grotesque evil culture.

I guess that in a society where substance has been shoved into the back seat in deference to its completely useless cousin, style, the President’s latest appeal to those whose lives are only made possible by that displacement should not be a surprise to anyone. If you’re going to waste resources tackling a phony problem, who better than phony people to take the lead?

Let us put aside for the moment the hilarity of this PSA being played in front of a backdrop that highlights all of the child rapists and wife beating thugs that make up any Hollywood crowd gathered for one of their black tie parties. This highlights a problem far greater in its destructive power than the Mad Max scenario our President and his supporters are portraying our nation to be. We have a President who is playing make believe with the power of his office. Rather than face and deal with reality, our Chief Executive has just declared reality to be subjective, and signaled that he intends to further misappropriate the vast resources entrusted to his management according to the myth he’d rather be dealing with.

The above points present a triple whammy for police tasked with keeping our peace. First of all, many women who are raped don’t report it for a variety of reasons. Preventing those crimes, and bringing the criminals to justice is difficult for obvious reasons. Secondly and Thirdly, each minute that the police spend investigating the 2 out of every 5 reports of rape that didn’t actually take place, is a minute that they will not have available to them to investigate the 3 out of 5 rapes that did occur. Innocent lives will be negatively affected by this misappropriation of resources, as was the entire Duke Lacrosse Team. Many would be criminals will escape justice due to the same misappropriation. Women who are convinced that justice will not be attained for their attackers will then be even less likely to come forward.

The same will hold true for our nation as a whole. Should we dispatch our national resources to tackle the problem of our nonexistent rape culture, we will have fewer resources to tackle the problems that actually are happening. Illegal immigrants committing real crimes, terror cells actively recruiting on our soil for some of their lovely activities, an IRS that has been weaponized for purposes of criminal harassment of any political opposition, or an EPA that has completely run amok and taken the task of destroying any economic activity to be its mandate, are all allowed to flourish in our society where style trumps substance.

Barack Obama cares, and any who would rather tackle the problems that really do exist rather than those that show how compassionate and caring we can be as a society, are of course in favor of raping and beating women. Maybe President Obama should get Roman Polanski and Bobby Brown to be the co-readers of the next PSA to cover this topic. It would have far more credibility that way, to have an actual rapist and wife beating thug involved I mean.

They Aren’t ‘Asians’…

They Aren’t ‘Asians’…these cowards aren’t Hindi, or Sikh, or Buddhist..They are:

 

COWARD MUSLIM MEN

 

Do note how even the article skirts around the obvious. The words ‘Islam’ and ‘Muslim’ ares never used. Here is another example of failing to properly identify the enemy. Muzz and Western Civ are not compatible.

 

Rotherham council ignored child abuse by Asian gangs because of ‘misplaced political correctness’, report concludes

Damning report into the Rotherham child sex exploitation scandal finds council riven by ‘bullying, sexism, suppression and misplaced political correctness’.

Misplaced political correctness by Rotherham’s Labour led council combined with a staggering culture of denial allowed more than 1,400 vulnerable girls to be routinely abused by gangs of Asian men, a withering report has concluded.

Children as young as nine were groomed, trafficked and raped by members of the town’s Pakistani community, but a desperation to avoid being labelled as racist, meant councillors turned a blind eye to the appalling abuse for 16-years.

Yesterday a damning report, written by former Victims’ Commissioner, Louise Casey, laid bare the true extent of the council’s failings and accused those in charge of deliberately trying to cover up scandal and silence whistle-blowers.

Just minutes after the report’s findings were published the entire Labour Cabinet of Rotherham Council resigned and Communities Secretary Eric Pickles announced he was sending in Government Commissioners to run things until new elections could be held next year.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) also announced it was extending its investigation into child sexual exploitation in the town to cover a number of “potentially criminal matters” that had been uncovered by the report.

The NCA would not be drawn on what areas it will be investigating, but it is understood allegations of attempted cover ups at the council, will be explored further by investigators.

Ms Casey’s team of inspectors was ordered into Rotherham Council last year after Professor Alexis Jay’s shocking report revealed the extent of child sexual exploitation that had existed in Rotherham since the late 1990s.

Her report, published in August revealed how the victims were routinely let down by those who were charged with safeguarding their welfare.

Despite the appalling revelations and victim testimonies contained in the Jay report, Ms Casey said she had been greeted by a council that was still in complete denial about the extent of the problem.

Describing the reaction she received when interviewing council members, she said: “They denied that there had been a problem, or if there had been, that it was as big as was said.

“If there was a problem they certainly were not told – it was someone else’s job. They were no worse than anyone else. They had won awards. The media were out to get them.”

Inspectors also found there had been a widespread reluctance among officials to address the problem for fear of being labelled racist, something which the report said had helped fuel the rise of the far-right in the area.

Ms Casey wrote: “The issue of race is contentious, with staff and members lacking the confidence to tackle difficult issues for fear of being seen as racist or upsetting community cohesion.

“By failing to take action against the Pakistani heritage male perpetrators of CSE in the borough, the Council has inadvertently fuelled the far right and allowed racial tensions to grow it has done a great disservice to the Pakistani heritage community and the good people of Rotherham as a result.

“This has allowed perpetrators to remain at large, has let victims down, and perversely, has allowed the far right to try and exploit the situation. These may have been unintended consequences but the impact remains the same and reaches into the present day.”

The report also criticised the role of the police in the scandal, stating that there were “numerous occasions when girls were not believed”.

The report went on: “They were threatened with wasting police time, they were told they had consented to sex and, on occasion, they were arrested at the scene of a crime, rather than the perpetrators.”

Ms Casey praised the bravery of whistle-blowers in exposing the truth about the scandal but accused council officials of failing to listen to them.

The report said that the council went to “considerable lengths” to cover up information adding: “It has created an unhealthy climate where people fear to speak out”.

In a statement to the Commons, Mr Pickles said: “Some councillors have not lived up to the high standards expected of those in public life or their positions of responsibility.”

Shadow communities secretary, Hilary Benn, welcomed the proposals and said it was clear the council had been more concerned with protecting its reputation than safeguarding its children.

Rotherham MP Sarah Champion also welcomed the package announced by Mr Pickles.

She said what she had read in the report had been “disgusting”, with a new horror on every page.

 

Charlie Who?

by Iron Fist ( 134 Comments › )
Filed under Leftist-Islamic Alliance at January 16th, 2015 - 7:00 am

Charles Krauthammer has a piece in today’s Washington Post Taking Emporer Obama to task for Sunday’s breach of decency:

On Sunday, at the great Paris rally, the whole world was Charlie. By Tuesday, the veneer of solidarity was exposed as tissue thin. It began dissolving as soon as the real, remaining Charlie Hebdo put out its post-massacre issue featuring a Muhammad cover that, as the New York Times put it, “reignited the debate pitting free speech against religious sensitivities.”

Again? Already? Had not 4 million marchers and 44 foreign leaders just turned out on the streets of France to declare “No” to intimidation, and pledging solidarity, indeed identification (“Je suis Charlie”) with a satirical weekly specializing in the most outrageous and often tasteless portrayals of Muhammad? And yet, within 48 hours, the new Charlie Hebdo issue featuring the image of Muhammad — albeit a sorrowful, indeed sympathetic Muhammad — sparked new protests, denunciations and threats of violence, which in turn evinced another round of doubt and self-flagellation in the West about the propriety and limits of free expression. Hopeless.

As for President Obama, he never was Charlie, not even for those 48 hours. From the day of the massacre, he has been practically invisible. At the interstices of various political rallies, he issued bits of muted, mealy-mouthed boilerplate. Followed by the now-famous absence of any high-ranking U.S. official at the Paris rally, an abdication of moral and political leadership for which the White House has already admitted error.

But this was no mere error of judgment or optics or, most absurdly, of communications in which we are supposed to believe that the president was not informed by staff about the magnitude, both actual and symbolic, of the demonstration he ignored. (He needed to be told?)

On the contrary, the no-show, following the near silence, precisely reflected the president’s profound ambivalence about the very idea of the war on terror. Obama began his administration by purging the phrase from the lexicon of official Washington. He has ever since shuttled between saying that (a) the war must end because of the damage “keeping America on a perpetual wartime footing” was doing to us, and (b) the war has already ended, as he suggested repeatedly during the 2012 campaign, with bin Laden dead and al-Qaeda “on the run.”

Yeah, he’s right that Obama doesn’t take the “war on terrorism” (which really should be a war against militant Islam) seriously. He doesn’t act like a man who is trying to win anything there. He’ll make a gesture towards it from time to time, but he really doesn’t care enough about it to focus any real attention on it. Benign neglect is about the best we can hope for from Obama. With the way he is releasing prisoners from Gitmo, I think you really have to question how benign that neglect is. He continues:

Hence his accelerating release of Gitmo inmates — five more announced Wednesday — fully knowing that up to 30 percent have returned to the battlefield (17 percent confirmed, up to 12 percent suspected but not verified). Which is why, since about the Neolithic era, POWs tend to be released after a war is over.

Paris shows that this war is not. On the contrary. As it rages, it is entering an ominous third phase.

The first, circa 9/11, involved sending Middle Eastern terrorists abroad to attack the infidel West.

Then came the lone wolf — local individuals inspired by foreign jihadists launching one-off attacks, as seen most recently in Quebec, Ottawa and Sydney.

Paris marks Phase 3: coordinated commando strikes by homegrown native-speaking Islamists activated and instructed from abroad. (Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has claimed responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo killings, while the kosher-grocery shooter proclaimed allegiance to the Islamic State.) They develop and flourish in Europe’s no-go zones where sharia reigns and legitimate state authorities dare not tread.

Krauthammer doesn’t mention it, but the attack in Nairobi was another of these kind of attacks. This is another example of why you should be armed basically all the time. The only thing that could have stopped these terrorists is armed victims. Armed victims isn’t a panacea. When terrorists strike like this, people will be killed no matter what. But if they are armed, they can shoot back. They can minimize the damage caused by these kinds of attacks. At the end, Krauthammer asks the right questions:

The war on terror 2015 is at a new phase with a new geography. At the core are parallel would-be caliphates: in Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State; in Sub-Saharan Africa, now spilling out of Nigeria into Cameroon, a near-sovereign Boko Haram; in the badlands of Yemen, AQAP, the most dangerous of all al-Qaeda affiliates. And beyond lie not just a cast of mini-caliphates embedded in the most ungovernable parts of the Third World from Libya to Somalia to the borderlands of Pakistan, but an archipelago of no-go Islamist islands embedded in the heart of Europe.

This is serious. In both size and reach it is growing. Our president will not say it. Fine. But does he even see it?

I think Obama sees it. Krauthammer doesn’t ask the most important question. That question is does Obama want to see the terrorists achieve their goals? I think the answer to that is a qualified yes. He wants to see them succeed to the extent that they bring down America and Western Civilization. He doesn’t particularly want an Islamic Caliphate. Like Charles Manson thought of the blacks, Obama expects the Mohammedans to overthrow Civilization, and then ask Liberals to run their shiny New World Order. We’ll see how that works out for him.

An Open Letter to PM Tony Abbott…and Deputy PM Julie Bishop #auspol

Tony Abbott and Julie Bishop

Dear leaders,

I voted for your ‘Team Australia” at the last election. I could hardly wait to get rid of the previous Labor Governments after seeing the economic mess they had made here, as well as the mess made by their disastrous immigration policies, including the loss of lives caused by it.

It’s true you have stopped the boats but you have failed miserably in stopping our Fifth Column: the ABC – a tax-payer funded organisation that would love to see you fail and disappear into political oblivion!

As I read many blogs and websites I KNOW that many people can’t wait for you to do this.

I think, if you knew the ratings figures, you would find ‘our’ ABC is not very popular, and most Australians are not keen to see their tax dollars paying for their own destruction.

You had sufficient reasons – we are broke! The ABC/SBS can easily find sponsors for funding, and should there not be enough – well…tough! No one will miss them, will they?

This past week we have seen all too clearly just what Muslim immigration can do.

Whilst Australia has a lower percentage of Muslims it can be assumed that it only needs a small number of people to create havoc as we saw in the Lindt Coffee Shop in Sydney recently.

It is clear to me that whenever there is such an incident more often than not the perpetrators are Islamic.

Oooops, I said the ‘I’ word !!!!

If I can say it why can’t you? Why are you and other world leaders afraid of this word?

You have now begun to call ISIS the “Daesh” or “The Khorasan Group” thinking perhaps, that the majority of Australians won’t catch on, or are you avoiding offending the local Muslim community?

Why? Many of them offend us on a regular basis. We get no apology or reassurances from them – quite the contrary.

Sometimes I get a fanciful notion about conspiracy theories. and when I do I can’t help but wonder whether some faceless cabal from the UN comes to visit each newly-elected leader just to tell them: Do as we say, or else?

Please tell me I am wrong and foolish but it certainly looks that way, or something like it.

Somehow the UN has omitted telling Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping and Benjamin Netanyahu how to play by their rules.

Of course we all know Mr Netanyahu is World Enemy #1 in the UN’s eyes, and Vladimir Putin is The #1 enemy of NATO and the EU which is why they have spent so much time making him look positively evil.

Putin and Netanyahu have problems with Islam and they call it out when they see it.

It was the incident at Beslan that helped get Putin as much popularity as he has now. Both these leaders actually care about their citizens…a new concept, I know!

When you were going to ‘shirt-front Putin’ I saw a red flag. I know you were concerned about a missing plane and our citizens but we didn’t have enough information to jump to any definite conclusions.It showed me you were at one with the UN.

Now we have just witnessed two atrocities in France: the murder of cartoonists and the murder of hostages at a Kosher (that means Jewish) grocery store.

There has been an outpouring of support for the cartoonists: the Jewish hostages not so much!

It isn’t that long ago since WW2 ended and yet we are seeing an amazing resurgence of anti-Semitism which is most alarming.

Russia sent a representative, and Benjamin Netanyahu went also, in spite of the fact that Monsieur Hollande told him not to! How quaint! How insulting! How very French!!!

But the French have always been appeasers.

Over the weekend, Andrew Bolt said, “Are we really all Charlie? No, no and shamefully no”:

Australia also has oppressive racial vilification laws which Prime Minister Tony Abbott had promised to relax but last year decided to keep, saying changing them would become a “complication” in making Muslim Australians side with the rest of us against jihadists.
[…]
This will go on. Be sure of it. Your ruling classes will not easily admit to having made an error that cannot now be fixed. It will prefer oppression to freedom, if that brings at least the illusion of peace — and many may even think they are right.
[…]

The French Ambassador now tells us – and as if we didn’t know…Paris attacks: French ambassador urges Australia to remember ‘the spirit of Charlie’ – video

The French ambassador to Australia, Christophe Lecourtier, tells people at a rally in Martin Place, Sydney, to keep in mind the protest ethos of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. He says those at Martin Place would be acutely aware of ‘what violence means’. Three days of bloodshed in France saw 17 people and three gunmen killed. Twelve people died at the offices of Charlie Hebdo and there were further attacks at a kosher supermarket and other sites around Paris.

Seems he can’t say the “J” word! And he can’t say the “I” word either!!

So what we have now is a situation where we must rely on our own cartoonists for the truth, and for showing principles leadership.

Mr Larry Pickering:

Halal certified Muhammad-piggie ready for roasting on a pencil spit over a pile of Qurans - and wearing nipple clamps!

Mr Bill Leak:

Bill Leak cartoon: Free speech as long as it doesn't offend - with Aussie Labor/Green senators in front

Perhaps these two gentleman would better serve the Australian public!

Oddly enough, US President Barack Hussein Obama didn’t attend with the group of world leaders. He sent his AG to France, not his VP, but Holder didn’t attend either!

Obama: ‘The Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam…’

That’s a very telling little sentence! What does he know that you don’t know?

Mars Presents: From The New American: Obama Hides Executive Abuses by Calling Decrees “Memoranda”

While everyone is watching and tracking his executive orders Obama is throwing out decrees left and right through Presidential Memorandas.

Despite promising repeatedly on the campaign trail to rein in George W. Bush’s executive-branch usurpations of power, Obama has been spewing a particular type of unconstitutional decree at a rate unprecedented in U.S. history. While the Obama administration has indeed unleashed a full-throated attack on the Constitution using “executive orders,” even more of his decrees have come in the form of so-called “presidential memoranda” — an almost identical type of executive action that he has used more than any previous U.S. president, according to a review published this week by USA Today.

Since taking office, Obama has issues 198 decrees via memoranda — that is 33 percent more than Bush, the runner up for the record, issued in eight years — along with 195 executive orders. Among other policy areas, Obama’s memoranda edicts have been used to set policy on gun control, immigration, labor, and much more. Just this week, Obama issued another memoranda decree purporting to declare Bristol Bay in Alaska off limits to oil and gas exploration — locking up vast quantities of American wealth and resources using his now-infamous and brazenly unconstitutional “pen and phone.”

“Like executive orders, presidential memoranda don’t require action by Congress,” reported USA Today as part of its investigation into Obama’s decrees. “They have the same force of law as executive orders and often have consequences just as far-reaching. And some of the most significant actions of the Obama presidency have come not by executive order but by presidential memoranda.” However, despite the newspaper’s obvious confusion on constitutional matters — only Congress can make law, not the White House — the review raises a number of important issues.

For instance, as the paper implies, Obama has been using deception to conceal his radical — imperial or dictatorial, according to many lawmakers — machinations purporting to change policy and law by fiat. “The truth is, even with all the actions I’ve taken this year, I’m issuing executive orders at the lowest rate in more than 100 years,” Obama claimed in a speech last July, without mentioning that he has issued more “memoranda” than any American president in history. “So it’s not clear how it is that Republicans didn’t seem to mind when President Bush took more executive actions than I did.”

Other leading Democrats have made similarly deceptive arguments to dupe “stupid” voters, as ObamaCare’s Gruber put it. Aside from the fact that previous abuses by Republicans do not legitimize or excuse current abuses, the oft-heard claim that Obama has issued fewer “executive order” decrees than other presidents is more a matter of semantics than substance. “There’s been a lot of discussion about executive orders in his presidency, and of course by sheer numbers he’s had fewer than other presidents,” Andrew Rudalevige, a presidency scholar at Bowdoin College, told USA Today.

“So the White House and its defenders can say, ‘He can’t be abusing his executive authority; he’s hardly using any orders,” Rudalevige continued. “But if you look at these other vehicles, he has been aggressive in his use of executive power.” Indeed, as The New American has documented extensively, Obama has been purporting to rule by executive fiat on everything from gun rights and the “climate” to immigration, education, national security, foreign relations, and health.

However, according to constitutional experts and even the president himself (before he took office), none of the “law”-making by presidential decree is actually legitimate. According to the U.S. Constitution, which created the federal government and granted it a few limited powers, only Congress has the power to make laws — assuming they are constitutional. The president’s job, by contrast, involves merely enforcing the laws passed by Congress and signed by the president, not making them up while hiding behind patently bogus claims of imagined “executive authority.”

Obama, of course, understands that well — or at least he claimed to less than seven years ago. “I taught constitutional law for ten years,” then-Senator Obama told gullible voters in 2008 amid his first run for the presidency. “I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that were facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President of the United States of America.”

Except rather than reversing the illegitimate usurpation of unconstitutional power, Obama expanded it by leaps and bounds — to the point where his administration openly creates pseudo-“law” and pseudo-“treaties,” and then mocks Congress about it. Among the “memoranda” used by Obama thus far was the purported creation of the MyRA “savings” scheme, a widely ridiculed and criticized unconstitutional plot that analysts said would be used to extract more wealth from Americans under the guise of “helping” them. Even Congress does not have the authority to create such a program — much less the administration.

Obama, though, regularly brags about his lawless pseudo-lawmaking. “One of the things that I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for a legislation [sic] in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need,” Obama announced at the beginning of the year, right before his first cabinet meeting. “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone — and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward.”

Shortly after that, in his State of the Union speech to Congress, he brazenly told the American people’s elected representatives that he would ignore them if they did not promptly submit to his demands. “America does not stand still — and neither will I,” Obama threatened before lawmakers stood up and applauded the outlandish behavior. “So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.” Many lawmakers were furious, blasting Obama as a “socialistic dictator,” calling for his impeachment, and more, and the public was horrified, but the rule-by-decree continued.

Indeed, unlike his false campaign promises, Obama did indeed make good on his threats to continue ignoring Congress and the Constitution to rule by unconstitutional decree. Behaving more like a Third World dictatorship than a U.S. presidential administration, the White House even trotted out senior officials to tell the press that even the American people’s elected representatives would be unable to stop the usurpations and abuses. In addition to the “executive orders” and “presidential memoranda,” which the administration itself considers to be essentially the same, Obama has also unleashed dozens of so-called “presidential policy directives.”

Of course, there can be some legitimate functions for executive orders — outlining the manner in which the administration plans to faithfully execute the constitutional laws passed by Congress, for example. However, purporting to make and change law — or even contradict existing federal law, such as Obama’s radical amnesty-by-decree scheme supposedly preventing the enforcement of immigration law — are certainly not among those legitimate functions.

The solution to the imperial decrees and pretended acts of legislation from the White House is simple: Congress must refuse to fund it. However, despite being elected on a wave of popular outrage against the Obama administration’s usurpations of power, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle recently voted to fund virtually all of the White House’s illegal decrees through next September. The only way to put a stop to the scheming will be for an educated American electorate to hold their elected representatives accountable to the oath they swore, with a hand on the Bible, to uphold the U.S. Constitution.

Guest Post: Bill Clinton back in the News again for sexual misconduct

From Dorian’s The Wilderness of Mirrors:

Serial rapist Bill Clinton back in the News again for sexual misconduct.

In 1998 Bill Clinton infamously used his position as the most powerful man on earth to crush criminal investigations into accusations that he was a serial rapist. Those accusations dated all the way back to the 1970’s when he was Governor of Arkansas. Will Bill Clinton ever be held accountable? Not bloody likely. But now with the recent revelations regarding Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton’s close association and frequent visits to sexual slavery paradise being brought to light, perhaps people will start to rethink exactly who and what Bill Clinton really is.

Bill Clinton Is an Alleged Rapist, Too. Why Aren’t You Outraged About That?

Yes, that’s the one. Remember him? Bill Clinton. Former President of the United States, possibly future First Husband of the United States? Ring a bell? You know the guy — the one who remains a beloved figure in American liberalism? An elder statesman of the Democrat Party? The dude who shows up to fundraise for Democratic congressional candidates? The man who continues to enjoy enormous popularity even after his presidency? Yeah, that guy. He was President. The actual President of the United States.

The President of the United States who was credibly accused of rape, assault, and sexual harassment by numerous women over a period of many years. Forget Monica Lewinsky. I’m talking about Juanita Broaddrick, who recounted the incident to Dateline in 1999, saying ‘[Clinton] turned me around and started kissing me, and that was a real shock. I first pushed him away. I just told him ‘no.’ . . . He tries to kiss me again. He starts biting on my lip. . . . And then he forced me down on the bed. I just was very frightened. I tried to get away from him. I told him ‘no.’ . . . He wouldn’t listen to me.’

And Paula Jones, who most Americans remembers as ‘That Woman Who Had Something To Do With The Monica Lewinsky Thing Or Something,’ won an out of court settlement from Clinton after accusing him of summoning her to his hotel room one night and, right there with his security detail standing by, dropping his pants and exposing himself.

As horrifying as it sounds, from the 70′s all the way through the 90′s and possibly beyond, college students, secretaries, interns, and others, all tell stories of sexual violence at the hands (or other body parts) of Bill Clinton. The Clinton machine went to work in each case, with the active help of Hillary ‘The Champion For Women’s Rights’ Clinton, smearing, intimidating, blackmailing and bribing the accusers into silence. And you’re telling me Bill Cosby is the bigger story?

Jeffrey Epstein is a convicted serial sexual predator, and once a very close confidant of Bill Clinton. Jeffry is now being investigated for allegations that he kept under-aged girls captive and exploited them as sexual slaves. there is also documented evidence that Bill Clinton visited the very same island resort multiple times where Jeffrey Epstein was reputed to have kept these under-aged sexual slaves, and the Bill Clinton’s multiple visits took place during the period of time that Jeffrey Epstein was keeping those under-aged girls there as sexual slaves.

Given the nature of the allegations against Jeffrey Epstein, and the evidence that Bill Clinton was in fact visiting Epstein’s infamous sexual slavery paradise island any honest rational individual must ask themselves, how do Bill Clintons previous allegations of sexual misconduct look in this light?

Bill Clinton identified in lawsuit against his former friend and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who had ‘regular’ orgies at his Caribbean compound that the former president visited multiple times

A new lawsuit has revealed the extent of former President Clinton’s friendship with a fundraiser who was later jailed for having sex with an underage prostitute.

Bill Clinton’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, who served time in 2008 for his illegal sexual partners, included up multiple trips to the onetime billionaire’s private island in the Caribbean where underage girls were allegedly kept as sex slaves.

The National Enquirer has released new details about the two men’s friendship, which seems to have ended abruptly around the time of Epstein’s arrest.

Tales of orgies and young girls being shipped to the island, called Little St. James, have been revealed as part of an ongoing lawsuit between Epstein and his former lawyers Scott Rothstein and Bradley Edwards.

It is unclear what the basis of the suit is, but they go on to call witness testimony from some of the frequent guests at Epstein’s island to talk about the wild parties that were held there in the early 2000s.
Convicted: Epstein was investigated in 2005 after a woman reported that he paid her 14-year-old daughter for sex

Flight logs pinpoint Clinton’s trips on Epstein’s jet between the years 2002 and 2005, while he was working on his philanthropic post-presidential career and while his wife Hillary was a Senator for their adopted state of New York.

‘I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here kind fo thing, and he laughed it off and said well he owes me a favor,’ one unidentified woman said in the lawsuit, which was filed in Palm Beach Circuit Court.

The woman went on to say how orgies were a regular occurrence and she recalled two young girls from New York who were always seen around the five-house compound but their personal backstories were never revealed.

At least one woman on the compound was there unwillingly, as the suit identifies a woman as Jane Doe 102.

She ‘was forced to live as one of Epstein’s underage sex slaves for years and was forced to have sex with… politicians, businessmen, royalty, academicians, etc,’ the lawsuit says according to The Enquirer.

Epstein’s sexual exploits have been documented since 2005, when a woman in Palm Beach contacted police saying that her 14-year-old daughter had been paid $300 to massage him and then have sex.

The claim prompted a nearly year-long investigation that led to the eventual charge of soliciting prostitution which came as part of a plea deal. He spent 13 months of a 18-month sentence in jail and remains a registered sex offender.

Hillary Clinton is convinced that it is her turn to be President of the United States of America, and there is nothing in Heaven or Earth that will dissuade her that she does not have that right. All the evidence however suggests that she is and always has been aware of Bill’s serial sexual predator status. More importantly, that she was actively involved in protecting him from the legal consequences of his actions. Does a woman who aided and abetted a serial rapist to avoid prosecution deserve to be President of the United States of America?

If you happen to be a Democrat, the answer to that question is absolutely. American Democrats have become notable in the last 40 years for their complete and total lack of anything even remotely resembling morality. They have but one single driving motivating impulse, that is, to win at any cost. The End Justifies the Means. They willfully entered into a state of public denial that Bill Clinton committed perjury and that he used his position as President of the United States to subordinate justice.

The leap from supporting a serial rapist as President of the United States to supporting someone who aided and abetted a serial rapist to avoid prosecution is actually a rather small one. It does on the other hand bring to an incredible degree of clarity just how morally bankrupt and corrupt the Democrat Party has become. A party that would literally nominate, and elect the devil himself if they though he would win and further their Marxist agenda.

No this is not an attempt to shame democrats into doing what is right, that hasn’t been possible in at least 40 years. These are just general observations on the complete lack of morality of the Clinton’s and corrupt nature of the Democrat Party as a whole.
