ERIC HOLDER MUST GO

 

Attorney General Eric Holder must either resign or face impeachment.

It’s one thing, to be incompetent or ineffective, as was Alberto Gonzalez in the Bush administration. It’s another thing to provide aid, comfort and special privilege to the enemy, thereby putting the nation at risk in a time of war, and our innocent population in peril from our enemies.

Every action Mr. Holder has taken in regards to the war on terror has not only provided aid and assistance, it has emboldened the entire world of terrorists.

Briefly:

1) Choosing to hold the trials of war criminals, i.e. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et al, in a civilian court instead of a military tribunal, thereby burdening the taxpayer with their costly defense, creating a security disaster, risking the suppression of vital evidence i.e., confessions, jeopardizing and compromising national intelligence and making the U.S. a laughing stock to terrorist organizations around the world.

2) Instituting policy that scuttled the interrogation of the Christmas Day airline bomber, by reading his Miranda rights thereby losing vital intelligence information about future plans to kill Americans.

3) Arbitrarily and unnecessarily dismissing the Black Panther voter intimidation case.

4) His frightening conflicts of interest by occupying the position of Attorney General of the United States, and making decisions about war criminals, while his prior law firm had been defending eighteen war criminals, pro bono, at Guantanamo.

The American people cannot feel a sense of confidence and security in knowing Mr. Holder holds these views and makes decisions that are not in the interest of national security. He has unnecessarily provided aid and comfort to those who would do Americans great harm. He is a danger to us all and has not the interest of America at heart.

The U.S. Constitution defines “Treason” :

“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Americans who are outraged at the treasonous actions of Mr. Holder should be writing their congressional representatives demanding impeachment.

That is, if Mr. Obama cannot see the writing on the wall…and then do the right thing.

I’m not holding my breath.

 

ADVANCE OF ISLAM: WOMEN IN PERIL

 

Where is the National Organization for Women? (NOW)

Where is the League of Women Voters?

The rising threat of an Islamic dominated society in future generations in the western hemisphere bodes dire consequences for certain segments of our society, especially women. Yet, we hear not a word of concern.

The warnings are clear. The symptoms are everywhere. The evidence is mounting. Trends are more obvious every day. Yet, we Americans plod along, ho hum, worried only about rock stars, iPhones and fashion as though this was only a minor pimple compared to a mountain.

It’s minor, all right — Today. But it won’t be in another fifty to one hundred years. Do we care?

Surprisingly, women’s advocacy organizations who have been so instrumental in bringing about equal rights and status for the women of this country are frighteningly mum. They either do not, or refuse to see it happening. They are not looking out for their daughters, granddaughters and their daughters. American women are the people who should be studying the issue of radical Islam closer than anyone, learning all they can and speaking out, because the threat is at the doorstep now. And while the population numbers for Islam in the west are currently small, that is changing.

Americans, in general, don’t see it in every day society, because Islamists don’t assimilate. They are not in your eyesight. (Out of sight, out of mind) You don’t see Muslims at restaurants, at ball games, at concerts, movie theaters, Publix markets and rarely in shopping malls. Islamists, for the most part — outside of their professional environment — are a closed society with the majority of their personal activities taking place in homes and mosques. Thus, what could be obvious, is not so obvious. For now. As their population numbers grow, they will become more vocal and demanding, just as they are in England, France, Denmark and Norway. And, their numbers ARE growing…everywhere.

While the average American mother bears slightly over two children per lifetime, the average Islamic mother bear six to seven. As generations pass, it’s a simple matter of mathematics. Islam does not need terrorism. All they need are numbers.

If and when Shariah takes a foothold in the United States, as they are doing in pockets within Europe today, you can kiss goodbye all the advances women have made over the last one-hundred years. And when Islam should ever become the dominant force — socially, politically and religiously — women stand a good chance of being relegated to slave status and subjugated to males as superiors, much the same as they are in many Islamic countries today.

Don’t think it can happen?

Of course, there are Muslim families who present the appearance of moderation and do not subscribe to fanaticism. They don’t beat wives and kill daughters. But they still subscribe to the same Koran, which clearly relegates women to second class status in the pecking order of life.

The first people who will feel the power of Islam should they become a majority in the next two or three generations, are Jews. Next, the women. Then, infidels in general (non-Muslims).

You say that the radicals are a small insignificant number, that Islamists in general are peaceful. If so, I suggest you read the history of Islam, the life of Muhammed and the Koran in its entirety. You may be quite shocked.

The Koran is quite deceptive. There are passages and verses that conflict, mainly because it was formed (revealed) in two segments of Muhammed’s life; The evangelical, peaceful segment in Mecca and later, the more violent, warrior segment in Medina, which is where Islamic terrorism was born.

In predominantly Islamic countries today, women are totally under the control of a dominant male, usually a father or husband. In Saudi Arabia, for example, a woman must be totally covered at all times outside the home. She cannot drive a car, cannot travel without the consent of a male, cannot be in the company of a male unless he is a relative, and cannot be raped. A raped woman must be prepared to prove the crime by producing four witnesses, all males. Otherwise, she will have created dishonor and may be sentenced to death by stoning. (No, I’m not making this up) In one Islamic country in Africa, women have been skewered by having a pole thrust up her rectum and out her neck.

The Koran allows for beating of a wife if she refuses to obey the husband. Here is one version of Surah (verse) 4:34. There are some translated variations but they all say the same thing.

Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband’s) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whom part you fear disloyalty and ill conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance) for Allah is Most High, Great (above you all).

Imam’s around the world give instructions on the rules and methods for wife beating. Check these videos:

A married man in Islam who wants a divorce has it easy. All he must do is shout aloud three times: “I Divorce You.” and it is done. A married woman who wants a divorce is another story. She must prove to a Shariah court how she has been abused and unprovided, which is not always a wise choice, considering Surah 4:34. In 2009, a so-called “moderate” Islamic, highly respected man in New York was so incensed by his wife’s desire for a divorce, that he beheaded her. (Trial pending)

In Shariah court, a woman’s testimony is worth one-half that of a man’s. Same with monetary and material rights. Her value is half that of a man.

Parvin Darabi is a courageous, Iranian-born women’s activist, president of the Dr. Homa Darabi Foundation and author of “Rage Against the Veil.” She managed to escape Islam and tell her story. Every woman should read this most profound essay:

Approximately five thousand known honor killings occur every year throughout the world. That’s when young females, usually a daughter or wife, are murdered by their male dominators for failing to wear a head scarf, dating a non-Islamic and even hinting at leaving the Islamic faith. We’ve seen several instances here in the USA, where fathers have murdered their daughters in the name of Allah.

In 2009, one frightened 17 year-old girl who secretly converted from Islam to Christianity, fled her home in Ohio to seek refuge in Florida, for fear of being killed by her father. One can only imagine what goes on behind closed doors in Islam when apostasy raises it’s defiant head.

Twenty years ago we heard none of this in free western nations. The change is huge. Inch by inch, the movement is rooting in. One can only imagine the progress they will make in another twenty years, or yet, by the end of this century. That’s why women’s groups, in particular, must be educated, vigilant and watchful toward every movement this government makes in acquiescing to Shariah demands.

When the changes begin to take place, it’s the Jews first, then the women, who will become subjugated.

Millions of us Americans are obsessed with protecting the unborn. Stopping abortion is one thing. Protecting those who are not yet conceived is another. They may look back one day in the year 2110, and wonder why we didn’t fight had enough to preserve the freedoms we cherish so much.

What can we do?

Wake up. Our present administration, seems to be doing everything to advance the islamic agenda, including giving advantages to terrorists in the legal arena. Economy and health care are certainly important, but the future of American freedom and the preservation of our culture is another. What should worry women, is the long range agenda which seems to include the coddling of Islam.

I’ve written enough about Mr. Obama in the past. This time, I’ll let Parvin Darabi — a former supporter of Mr. Obama — do the writing. Please, take the time to read her powerful essay on The Bow:

DUTCH RESPONSE TO GEERT WILDERS SUPPORTER

I received this letter from the Dutch Consulate which was in response to my letter protesting the prosecution of Geert Wilders. I thought it appropriate to share with my readers who care about this issue

 
 
 
 

 

Dear Mr. Frank,
With reference to your letter of January 18th, 2010, I kindly ask your
attention for the following.
In September 2009, the Court of Appeal in Amsterdam ordered the criminal
prosecution of Mr. Geert Wilders, Member of the Dutch Parliament, for
inciting hatred and discrimination based on his statements in various
media about Islam. Various people and organisations had asked for his
prosecution. In June 2008, the Public Prosecutor had determined that his
statements were not against the law and had dropped the case, but the
plaintiffs appealed this decision before the Court of Appeal.
The Court of Appeal determined that statements equating Islam to Nazism
were a punishable insult to Islamic worshippers and therefore
constituted ground for criminal prosecution. The Court of Appeal did not
convict Mr. Wilders of a crime, but ordered the Public Prosecutor to
start a criminal procedure against him before the District Court of
Amsterdam.

On January 13th, the District Court in Amsterdam dismissed a motion made
by Mr. Wilders to limit the charges against him. The Court ruled that
the indictment was in line with the decision of the Court of Appeal and
that there were no new facts that would give reason to limit the scope
of the indictment. On January 20th, the District Court in Amsterdam will
start the proceedings in the case. Ultimately, it will decide whether or
not Mr Wilders has committed a criminal offense.

The Court of Appeal and the District Court are fully independent from
the Dutch government. As the procedure is ongoing, any further comment
by the Netherlands government on the case itself would be inappropriate.
Mr. Wilders is a member of parliament and continues his work while the
case goes through the legal process.
Sincerely,
Arend C. Gouw
Consul

Consulate General of the
Kingdom of the Netherlands

This was my brief response to his letter:

 

Thank you Mr. Geow, for your thoughtful response. As an American who relishes the freedom of speech as provided in our constitution, I still find it appalling that Mr. Wilders would have to face criminal charges for expressing his opinions…which, incidentally, millions agree with. To the rest of the world, it appears more clear that the Dutch authorities are capitulating to the demands of radical Islamists in order to pacify.

Thank you again. I will post your reply on my blog site… for readers to make their own judgement.

ASSESSING THE SCOTT BROWN VICTORY

The message could not be more clear.

In November’s two special elections, voters installed long-shot Republicans as governors in otherwise blue states of New Jersey and Virginia.

Now, voters from the most liberal state in the nation has just converted Ted Kennedy’s senate seat into a surprise Republican upset where Scott Brown overcame a deficit of 30 points to win.

If these elections are a barometer for what’s to come, there certainly will be “change’ in America like it’s never been seen before. Look out Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barney Frank.

The people have spoken and politicians should listen up. Senator-elect Scott Brown is correct. Republicans and Democrats do not own their senate seats any more than the president owns the Oval Office. They belong to We The People, as articulated by the founding fathers.

Some folks from the losing side say it’s all about dirty politics and fear mongering, that right wing fanatics are listening too much to Limbaugh and Hannity. To them, I say you underestimate the independent will of the American voter. These voters don’t need to be led by radio and television talk show hosts, the failed policies and run-away spending of the past year are evidence enough. All they need is to witness and watch the crumbling economy continue to crumble. Have no doubt, this is also a referendum on the Obama machine.

For one year, it’s been convenient to lay blame on George W. Bush’s policies. Those excuses are getting old. It’s time for Democrats to own up to their own mistakes. What guided the voters in these three elections was not just one or two issues, but a myriad of festering problems which spell grievous discontent amid mainstream America. The top of the list would include:

* A stimulus package costing taxpayers $825 billion, loaded with promises which were not kept.

* Continuous double-digit unemployment despite the stimulus.

* Health Care reform proposals that were rife with flaws, costs and government control.

* $460 billion in Medicare cuts in the Health Care Reform bill then daring to suggest it won’t affect health care service for seniors.

* Special favor sell-outs by politicians to change their votes, tantamount to bribery.

* Absence of promised transparency.

* A $1.4 trillion budget deficit, which soared from $460 billion in one year.

* A continuous slump in the housing market.

* Loss of confidence in government leaders, in regards to terrorism and Homeland Security.

* The government’s audacity to charge taxpayers with the enormous cost of defending terrorist war criminals as though they were American citizens.

* Stifling the mainstream media if and when commentators disagree with policy.

* The Gitmo fiasco.

Et al.

Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts came not from Republicans, which only make up 12 percent of that state’s registered voters, but from seventy-five percent of independents who voted their conscience, not party lines.

New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts are the tip of the iceberg. Politicos who rode the wave of victory in November of 2008 used “change” as a mantra to garner votes. But change is not always for the better. Democrats in both houses and the White House would do well to heed the message of the American majority and embark on a new “change” in the right direction. Otherwise, Washington may well see a lot of new faces after November.

Mort Zuckerman is Chairman of U.S. News And World Report, and a well-known liberal journalist who has openly supported Obama and other Democrats in the congress. No more. And his sentiments are among the millions on the left, or who rode the center in 2008, who liked what they heard, but have since deplored what they have witnessed. This isn’t Beck and Hannity speaking, it’s a prominent leftist. Check his latest article:

THE SHAMEFUL FT. HOOD REPORT

The 86 page report on the Fort Hood Shooting has been released by the military… politically correct as usual. Not even a mention of the killer’s name, nor that Islamic extremism had been his motivation for murdering thirteen innocent Americans and wounding twenty-nine more. 

  
Does anyone really wonder where the marching orders for the final report came from?
  
Nidal Hasan was driven by Islamic fanaticism, not just the day of the crime, but for months and years prior to that tragic day. It was his total and complete motivation, inspired equally by radicals outside the U.S.  Yet…the report cannot tell the simple truth. How are we to believe anything coming from this government today whenever Islam is involved if they cannot be up front and honest? 
  
This is not only outrageous, it is shameful. And these are the people who are supposed to be our defenders, who we’re supposed to trust, and they cannot report a fact that the entire nation already knows?
  
       Read the article:
  
 
 
For the military committee to report that motive was not important as substance in their findings, is like saying Nazism was not relevant to killing 6 six million Jews in the Holocaust.  Without motive, there would have been no murders.  And the motive was the radical side of Islam which is driving Jihadists — by the millions — to fanaticism and terror all over the world. 
 
The continual soft-peddling and coddling of the radical Islamic problem by our leaders not only sickens Americans, it emboldens those who will continue their campaign to impose Shariah and dominate peace loving human beings.  Meanwhile, we have a president who apologizes to Islamic countries, claiming we have been the arrogant ones. Huh?
 
Tell that to the family of 9/11 victims.
 
“An isolated extremist” my butt…. “Don’t jump to conclusions.”… “Man-caused disaster…” “The system worked.”  … Meanwhile, the tax payers are providing lawyers to war criminals who will now be tried at enormous risk and cost in civilian courts…thanks to our protective president.
 
Are you kidding me? These are our leaders?
 
Radical Islam today is as dangerous as Nazism was in 1939.  Moreso, because they have stealth, far more numbers, unlimited funding, and they are rooted in over 70 nations throughout the world.
 
Isolated extemist, my butt. It is utterly amazing that actually elected these horrible (and dangerous) people.
