America’s “Islamic Fabric”?

Originally posted on Return of the Conservatives:

It’s kind of funny that Obama says at the conference on violent extremism that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”

It’s funny because it’s so ridiculous. I don’t remember seeing any Arab names on the Declaration of Independence. Was some 19th-century shoe bomber kicking southerners in the Civil War? Did children have their parents tie them up to suicide vests and blow up lines of English infantrymen during the Revolutionary War?

It’s sad because it’s a special kind of sad — pathetic. A president consistently lying to his people and his people too sycophantic to call a lie a lie. Can we take the voters seriously? Are they stupid? It’s kind of funny.

Obama says Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country? He dubiously inserts Islam into our history but ignores its role in in-your-face terrorism? That’s funny, silly, and…

This must have totally blindsided DHS. Because the biggest terror threat in the country is supposed to be this “right-wing” Sovereign Citizen Movement. No doubt they were on the lookout for Gadsden flag waving, bible-quoting “patriots.”  But no….

Via KVUE:

A Muslim man in Austin, TX is being accused of faking a hate crime against the Muslim Community Center where he was staying.

According to the Austin Police Department, 54-year-old Azzam Ahmed Baytie made two bomb threats at a North Austin Muslim Community Center and a Middle Eastern-style food truck near the Arab Cowboy Cafe and Hookah Lounge. The community center is in North Austin, and the cafe is located in West Campus.

Staff at the community center called Austin-Travis County EMS just after 7 a.m. Tuesday. They said the man had some kind of medical issue, possibly psychiatric problems.

He is being charged with terroristic threat, a third-degree…

The Pathological Roots of Islam

This is not a new subject. It would be to the mainstream media. To the dhimmitudal denizens of this particular subject of enquiry, Islam, as a “religion of peace” and a belief system, is above reproach, even when its true believers and activists are blowing up non-believers by the dozens, hundreds, and even thousands, or machine-gunning them or taking machetes to them. Islam is untouchable. To question its nature leaves news media denizens with dropped jaws one can hear thud on the floor. It leaves them aghast and in horror.

To them, Islam can do no wrong. There’s nothing wrong with it that a little patience and interfaith dialogue can’t resolve. It’s a needless cultural clash that can be reconciled peacefully. A negotiated settlement is possible. Muslims just want to be left alone and not be stereotyped or mocked or defamed. All the mullahs and imams…

Muslim Gangbangers and Their Gang Sign

Originally posted on PA Pundits - International:

Muslim Gangbangers_514-300x235_FBIslam can be seen as a gang. Its members are part of the umma, the transtribal supertribe of believers that Muhammad created 1,400 years ago. It practices the one-for-all-and-all-for-one ethos of the tribal mentality; in short, a gang.

And like any gang it has its gang sign. In photos and videos, often with the recently slain as the backdrop, you can see groups of believers flashing the distinctive Muslim gang sign: The index finger points straight up while the thumb wraps underneath and presses against the middle finger.

Dad banned from government school buildings after opting daughter out of state tests

Originally posted on Return of the Conservatives:

The father of a Northwest Local School District third-grader isn’t allowed in his daughter’s school. Eric Buwala has been banned from all school property. He can’t attend school functions if they’re in district-owned buildings, talk to his daughter’s teachers or see his child off on field trips at a school.

What did Buwala do to get himself ousted? The father of a 9-year old who has had extreme anxiety over taking state tests has been in a relentless wrestling match with the school district to allow his daughter to be exempt from some of the exams.

District officials said they tried to work with Buwala and satisfy his concerns, but their efforts never appeased the dad. The escalating situation had to be stopped, said Superintendent Mike Shreffler. So he banned Buwala from coming on district property or speaking with staff.

Eric Buwala said if the district doesn’t restore his rights…

The Empirical Case for a Much Smaller Public Sector

Originally posted on International Liberty:

As a fiscal policy economist who believes in individual liberty and personal responsibility, I have two goals.

1. Replace the corrupt and punitiveinternal revenue code with a simple and fair flat tax that raises necessary revenue in the least-destructive and least-intrusive manner possible.

2. Shrink the size of the federal government so that it only funds the core public goods, such as national defense and rule of law, envisioned by America’s Founding Fathers.

Needless to say, I haven’t been doing a great job. The tax code seems to get worse every year, and even though we’ve made some progress in recent years on spending, the long-run outlook is still very grim because there’s hasn’t been genuine entitlement reform.

But I continue with my Sisyphean task. And part of my efforts include educating people about the Rahn Curve, which is sort of the spending version

Obama Admin Discouraging Egyptian Airstrikes Against ISIS in Libya – Prefers “Political Solution”

Originally posted on Nice Deb:

One of the bright spots in the Middle East right now is Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi who in an important speech on January 1, called for religious reformation of the Muslim faith.

“The corpus of texts and ideas that we have made sacred over the years, to the point that departing from them has become almost impossible, is antagonizing the entire world, al Sisis said. You cannot feel it if you remain trapped within this mindset. You must step outside yourselves and reflect on it from a more enlightened perspective.”

So we have a strong potential ally in al Sisi, launching a military operation against (one would think) our common enemy ISIS/Daesh in Libya to avenge the deaths of 21 Egyptians who were not Muslims – but Coptic Christians. You would think that the United States would be embracing this important ally in the war against Islamic Terror.

But you…

Have Liberals Lost the Middle Class?

Originally posted on THAT'S WHAT I'M SCREAMING:

By:  Victor Davis Hanson

Democrats for over a century were associated with the American middle class.

Working-class voters once believed that Democratic-inspired intervention into the economy — minimum-wage laws, overtime pay, Social Security, Medicare, workers’ compensation — protected their interests better than unfettered free-market capitalism.

Republicans often had trouble selling the argument that an unleashed economy and new technology would relegate poverty to a relative, not absolute, condition — something like suffering with a cheap outdated iPhone 4 while the better-off afforded an iPhone 6.

Why, then, have Democrats lost the working class — especially white, lower-middle-class voters?

There are several obvious reasons.

For one, high-profile progressives are largely rich, and their relatively small numbers live in a gentrified cocoon. Politicians, academics, media personalities, celebrities and other Democratically aligned professionals had just the sort of academic brands or technological, linguistic, cultural and service skills that were well-compensated during the transition…
