The Two Faces of Islam

The Koran is not arranged in chronological order. When it is arranged in chronological order it is clear that the Koran undergoes a serious transition after Muhammad’s first real triumph on the battlefield at Badr in 624.

But here are the real five pillars of Islam for the faithful:

I. Islam is to dominate over all other religions Q9:33, 61:9, 8:39

2. Muslims are to purify all of Arabia of its Pagans who can convert or be killed Q9:5 3. 3. Muslims are to fight and subjugate other non-Muslims and subdue and make them inferior second-class citizens (Dhimmis) to pay jizya (humiliation tax) to save their lives. Q9:29

4. Muslims are to have hatred and enmity forever for non-Muslims until they worship Allah alone Q60:4, they should fight those unbelievers close to them and let them find harshness in the Muslims Q9:123

5. Muslims must engage in this jihad…

Feds Still Studying Why Lesbians Are Obese

Total government funding now $2.87 million

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not.

In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

The study, which is being led by S. Bryn Austin, an associate epidemiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, operates on the premise that there is a “striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities.”

The researchers have been busier since last year, when…

Muslim “Militia” Celebrate Takeover of US Embassy Compound in Tripoli w/ Pool Party

You just cannot make this stuff up. Sometime last week, the Dawn of Libya not affiliated with or to be mistaken with Ansar al Sharia took over a residential annex of the U. S. Embassy in Tripoli, which U. S. personnel evacuated five weeks ago.

The Islamic “militia group” who claims that they are safeguarding the premises from looters allowed the press entry and as can be seen in the following video celebrated with a pool party something which is bound to get the attention of ISIS.

As of the filming of the video, to their credit (I think), with the exception of broken s few windows, the annex remains intact and has not been ransacked.

In a message on Twitter, U.S. Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones said the video appeared to have been shot in at the embassy’s residential annex…‘To my knowledge & per recent photos the…

The Punitive Economic Cost of Class-Warfare Taxation

Originally posted on International Liberty:

I’ve already shared a bunch of data and evidence on the importance of low tax rates.

A review of the academic evidence by the Tax Foundation found overwhelming support for the notion that lower tax rates are good for growth.

An economist from Cornell found lower tax rates boost GDP.

Other economists found lower tax rates boost job creation, savings, and output.

Even economists at the Paris-based OECD have determined that high tax rates undermine economic performance.

And it’s become apparent, with even the New York Times taking notice, that high tax rates drive away high-achieving people.

We’re going to augment this list with some additional evidence.

In a study published by a German think tank, three economists from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark look at the impact of high marginal tax rates on Danish economic performance.

Saudi King Abdullah Warns Europe and USA that ISIS Knows No Borders

BeFunky_null_14 Saudi King Abdullah

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has issued a warning to the West, in particular Europe and the United States that terrorism knows no borders.

Abdullah warned that if the west fails to act against these terrorists not militants as referred to by the pc brigade of western governments and media (my emphasis), it will be just a matter of months before ISIS is pursuing their caliphate in our backyards.

Pleading for aid from the West, Abdullah stated on Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station, Asharq al-Awsat daily that while condemning the carnage by the Islamic State inaction is unacceptable.

‘If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,’ he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.

‘Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East,’ said the…

Border Patrol will only shoot at Americans. – Tea Party Nation

Border Patrol will only shoot at Americans. – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

 

This is a story that should make your blood boil.1a00014a

Criminals from across the Mexican border use lethal force against the American Border Patrol and they don’t shoot back.  The Border Patrol tracks drug cartel smugglers into America and are using bean bag guns against Ak-47’s.  But when they come across an armed American, shots fly.

 

From Stars and Stripes:

 

A Border Patrol agent pursuing a group of immigrants in a wooded area near the Texas-Mexico border on Friday fired several shots at an armed man who later identified himself as a militia member.

Border Patrol spokesman Omar Zamora said agents had been chasing a group of immigrants east of Brownsville Friday afternoon when an agent saw a man holding a gun near the Rio Grande. The agent fired four shots, but did not hit the man. The man then dropped his gun and identified himself as a member of a militia. Zamora said no other details were immediately available.

Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio, whose agency is involved in the investigation, said the incident occurred on private property and it appeared the man had permission to be there. He was not arrested, Lucio said.

The man, whose name has not been released, was wearing camouflage and carrying a long arm that was either a rifle or shotgun, Lucio said. The agent had lost the group of immigrants when he turned around and saw the man holding the weapon.

BsCRwwNIgAANfXTAn unknown number of militia members have come to the Texas border following a surge in illegal immigration this summer.

But Lucio said, “We really don’t need the militia here.” He recognized they have the right to carry weapons, but noted that with the Border Patrol, Texas Department of Public Safety and local law enforcement, there are enough agencies working to secure the border. Gov. Rick Perry also called as many as 1,000 National Guard members to the border.

Really?

Secure the border?

Who the hell is doing that?

It isn’t the Border Patrol.  They are too busy babysitting illegal aliens.  The National Guard or Texas Department of Public Safety or the local law enforcement?

Sheriff Lucio is either a liar or a moron.  None of those agencies have authorization to enforce immigration laws.

Meanwhile, the door is open for every criminal or terrorist who wants to cross our border but if you are an American, lawfully exercising your rights, the Border Patrol is going to shoot at you.mywork

Warren Buffett Knows Less Government Means More Economic Activity – Tea Party Nation

Warren Buffett Knows Less Government Means More Economic Activity – Tea Party Nation.

 

Remember the “Buffett Rule?”

The Buffett Rule is part of a tax plan proposed by President Barack Obama in 2011. The tax plan would apply a minimum tax rate of 30 percent on individuals making more than a million dollars a year.

Remember for whom it’s named?

The Buffett Rule is named after American investor Warren Buffett, who publicly stated in early 2011 that he believed it was wrong that rich people, like himself, could pay less in federal taxes, as a portion of income, than the middle class, and voiced support for increased income taxes on the wealthy.

Remember what Buffett 2012 said – in his New York Times editorial?

Suppose that an investor you admire and trust comes to you with an investment idea. “This is a good one,”he says enthusiastically. “I’m in it, and I think you should be, too.”

Would your reply possibly be this? “Well, it all depends on what my tax rate will be on the gain you’re saying we’re going to make. If the taxes are too high, I would rather leave the money in my savings account, earning a quarter of 1 percent.”

But he has to know that potential investors do exactly that all the time.

Untaxed US Corporate Profits Held Overseas Top $2.1 Trillion

Foreign profits held overseas by U.S. corporations to avoid taxes at home nearly doubled from 2008 to 2013 to top $2.1 trillion, said a private research firm’s report….

Well, flash forward to Warren Buffett 2014.

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway is expected to help finance Burger King’s pending acquisition of Canadian doughnut-chain Tim Hortons.

The deal will allow Miami-based Burger King to claim Canada as its new legal home for tax purposes….

]And why is Canada a more favorable tax locale than the U.S.? Because everywhere on the planet is.

U.S. Corporate Tax Rates Are the Highest in the Developed World

Buffett’s corporate tax move is called an “inversion.”

Tax inversion, or corporate inversion, is the relocation of a corporation’s headquarters to a lower-tax nation, or corporate haven, usually whilst retaining its material operations in its higher-tax country of origin.

Does Buffett 2014 know this? He’s not a dumb guy. But here’s your Joke of the Day: He ludicrously claims:

…(T)he deal was not about taxes, saying that the combined company would be based in Canada because of Tim Hortons’ “strong roots” north of the border.

Of course in May Buffett said:

“I will not pay a dime more of individual taxes than I owe, and I won’t pay a dime more of corporate taxes than we owe. And that’s very simple.”

Indeed it is very simple. And you can’t blame Buffett 2014 for the sentiment. But you may certainly blame Buffett 2012 for his contradictory sentiment – and for wishing to impose its inanity upon us all.

So the Buffett Rule fails the Reality Test – per Buffett his own self. Just as do all the Left’s attempts at reverse engineering the economy and human nature.

This is just and yet another example of (at least) a couple of empirical facts.

1) The greater the government involvement in the marketplace – the more warped and damaged the marketplace becomes.

2) The private sector’s wealthiest members will always outsmart, outpace and outdistance whatever the oft-talentless government hacks try to throw at them.

The government damage is instead done to those who can least afford to absorb it.

The Buffetts already have theirs. But the tens of millions of Americans looking for work and new opportunities desperately need the Buffetts parking their $2.1 trillion overseas to bring it on home.

And until the government makes it more attractive to do so – those tens of millions of Americans will continue to suffer.

While the Buffetts jet set – and Buffett Rule champion President Obama golfs.

Glacial processes are beginning in Scotland >Must be Global Warming!< | Tavern Keepers

Glacial processes are beginning in Scotland >Must be Global Warming!< | Tavern Keepers.

 

1280px-Eigergletscher2006

The process of year-round snow pack, as being seen in Scotland, leads to glaciers such as these in Switzerland.

A team of scientists and climbers has recently been investigating the North Face and snowfields of Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in Scotland. They are discovering  neve, a dense pack of ice and snow that is the first stage in the formation of glaciers. If the neve survives the summer, ablation turns it into firm which is denser and then glacial ice. In addition to the neve, scientists found sheets of snow weighing hundreds of tons and fissure tunnels known as bergschrunds. While these features are common in alpine and artic climates, they are very unusual in the UK. The presence of year-round ice can cause a positive feedback loop, lowering the temperature in the surrounding area and leading to more  snow. Eventually,according to WUWT, the process is how ice ages begin. According to the BBC, there were glaciers present in Scotland between 1650 and 1790. This period, a portion of the Little Ice Age, saw shortened growing seasons and political unrest in Europe as the result of brutal winters and snows that lasted well into the spring.

The drop in temperatures that have caused the snowpack may be caused by a lack of solar activity. The current solar cycle, which began in 2008, has seen half the number of sunspots that scientists expected. Another diminished solar period, called the Maunder Minimum, occurred between 1645 and 1715. In addition, Iceland is experiencing conditions that may lead to volcanic eruptions, another factor that caused the Little Ice Age. If all these things come together, Europe as well as North America may be moving into a period of very cold and brutal winters. In the case of Europe, this means even more reliance on Russia for natural gas. It may also cause Russia to continue its expansionist push for Ukraine areas further south to control farmable land. One wonders what mental gymnastics will be required as these natural processes continue to spin their progression as both the result of man and controllable by government.
