REP.TREY GOWDY ON THE CONSTITUTION – POWERFUL

Rep. Trey Gowdy may not be the handsomist, most charsimatic politician, nor does he play to voting blocs and camera-angle likeability, but he sure gets a powerful message across without mincing words. 

     This is a six-minute clip from his address to congress regarding the dangers that are inherent in having a president who disregards the constitution and behaves as a king. Not only is it dangerous by this president, it sets new and irreversible precedents for future commanders in chief to expand the powers of the executive branch so far, that congress may, and can, be rendered insignificant. If that ever happens, we can kiss out constitution goodbye, along with al the rights and protections that are provided to Americans.

   Obama said, before he took the oath of office in 2009, “We are five days away from the fundamental transformation of America.” Now we know what he meant. 

     It’s amazing that someone like Gowdy was ever elected to office, because he’s a rare statesman, meaning he cares more about the state of the union than he does about how people like, or do not like him. This video should be seen and heard, not only by my readers, but by the young folks in colleges and high schools.  Listen carefully to this man’s words, to the end. 

 

 

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM A MODERATE MUSLIM

 

Tarek Fatah, 65, is a Pakistani-born Muslim intellectual reformist, journalist, author, who lives in Canada.  Three years ago, he gave a speech in Canada, warning that associates in the Muslim Brotherhood were imbedded in the White House.  He recently wrote this piece for the Toronto Sun. It’s short and powerful. I thought it important to share, especially considering the source.by Tarek Fatah

Kenji Goto, a fellow journalist, died Saturday.

Another innocent man beheaded by those among my co-religionists who wish to rule the world and to annihilate all non-Muslims. This in order to pave the way for an end-of-times apocalypse.

Many Muslim heads hung in shame as Goto’s head rolled into a barren desert ditch, while western politicians and media refused to call the Islamic State jihad what it is – a jihad.

Similarly, the now-familiar masked man who kills for the camera and who beheaded Goto, was referred to by most media not as a “jihadi terrorist of the Islamic State” (which is who and what he is), but rather as “a militant with a British accent”.

At the official level, the Obama White House announced it will host a Feb. 18 “summit” to counter what it referred to as “violent extremism.” Note the choice of words again. Not “jihadi terrorism,” but the much more vague “violent extremism.”

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, head of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy and a former U.S. Navy Lt. Commander, told me by not naming “jihadi terrorism” and “Islamism” for what they are, the White House has paid heed to Islamists within the administration who still exert influence over it.

 In a January 11 New York Times ad, several prominent moderate Muslim leaders denounced Islamism.

 

In contrast to those who refuse to call jihadi terrorism what it is, over 20 Muslim leaders recently took out a remarkable full-page advertisement in the New York Times to denounce ISIS and Islamism.

In the ad, headlined: What Can Muslims Do To Reclaim Their ‘Beautiful Religion’? they wrote: “Neither jihadism nor Islamism permit the equality of all humans irrespective of their race or religion and should therefore be rejected. Our denial and our relative silence must stop.”

The American signatories, led by Dr. Jasser, also had the support of former Danish MP Naser Khedar; former Pakistan ambassador to the U.S. Hussain Haqqani, now a professor at Boston University; Toronto Sun columnist Farzana Hassan; Canadian Muslims Raheel Raza and Munir Pervaiz and Britain’s leading Muslim warrior against Islamism, Majed Nawaz.

They declared, “It is the duty of … Muslims to actively and vigorously affirm and promote universal human rights, including gender equality and freedom of conscience. If Islam is a religion that stands for justice and peaceful coexistence, then the quest for an Islamic state cannot be justified as sanctioned by a just and merciful Creator.”

In a stirring challenge to ordinary Muslims, their New York Times ad went on to say: “We must also recognize and loudly proclaim that the quest for any and all ‘Islamic State(s)’ has no place in modern times. Theocracy, particularly Islamism, is a proven failure. The path to justice and reform is through liberty.”

Instead of engaging with these progressive Muslims and supporting their call for reform, not only did the White House ignore them, but every media outlet I saw other than Fox News did as well.

As if to reinforce the blindfold the Obama administration wears on these matters, we also learned from Eric Schultz, the White House deputy press secretary, that the the U.S. government no longer considers the Taliban as a “jihadi terrorist” group, but rather as an “armed insurgency”.

If this is how America fights its war against the Islamic State, ISIS will win, but not before many more innocents like Kenji Goto die.​

Tarek Fatah is a founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, a columnist at the Toronto Sun, host of a Sunday afternoon talk show on Toronto’s NewsTalk1010 AM Radio, and a Robert J. and Abby B. Levine Fellow at the Middle East Forum. He is the author of two award-winning books: Chasing a Mirage: The Tragic Illusion of an Islamic State and The Jew is Not My Enemy: Unveiling the Myths that Fuel Muslim Anti-Semitism.

A FRANK MOVIE REVIEW: 50 SHADES OF GREY – "0"

I wasn’t going to, but with second thoughts, we went to see it out of curiosity and all the fanfare. Here’s my review of 50 Shades of Grey.
     We walked out after an hour of boring, inane dialogue and virtually no story line other than lust and sex between two hot people in their 20’s. What a hunk-a-junk.
     Young woman appears for an interview with a handsome billionaire tycoon at his lush office, their eyes meet, her heart beats with lust while he sees her as a recipient of domination if and when he can lure her into his sex-toy house.
     End of story.
     The rest is all about passionate eyes, heavy breathing, close-ups, sex and more sex, and not an ounce of character development, plot or struggle.
     It’s nothing more than a shallow porn flick that doesn’t show the bare penis.
     The male actor, Jamie Dornan, is obviously a fashion model with extraordinary good looks, but without a character that invokes an iota of gravitas, nor intellect to show us how and why he became such as success at the age of 27. 
     The girl is a better actor, but the repetition of glossy eyes and panting heart gets old after a few shots. She’s Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. 
     If you like mindless, go see this movie.  Otherwise, save your money. If it’s anything like the book, I’m glad I didn’t waste time reading it.
    I give it a 0.

OBAMA: OUR PRESIDENTIAL EMBARRASSMENT

On the shores of Libya, ISIS recently beheaded 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt.  What did President El Sisi, of Egypt do?  He called it a national emergency and sent in firepower to bomb the ISIS militants, promising vengeance.

      What did King Abdullah of Jordan do when he learned that a Jordanian fighter pilot was burned to death by ISIS?  He returned back to his country from the U.S. and authorized immediate air strikes against the ISIS militants, vowing to avenge the savage killing. In addition, he authorized the execution of two al Qaeda prisoners.

         What did President Obama do when he learned that an American journalist, James Foley, had been beheaded before video cameras by ISIS militants? He gave a brief innocuous statement then, within minutes, returned to the golf course in Martha’s Vineyard.

      What did President Obama do when the consulate in Benghazi, Libya was attacked by terrorists and 4 Americans, including an ambassador, were murdered? He vanished for the evening, gave a brief statement in the Rose Garden in the morning, then – while our consulate smoldered –  it was off to fund raisers in Las Vegas, parties and late night comedy shows. From there his administration provided false narratives, blaming a dumb video mocking Muhammed as being to blame, which was exposed as a lie.

     In a mere two month period, between April and May of 2014, Wikipedia recorded at least 34 separate terrorist strikes around the world, in countries ranging from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, middle-east countries, European countries, African countries and Indonesia, which totaled over 350 dead innocents and thousands injured. What did President Obama do?  On June 1st, he released the five most notorious chieftains of international terrorism who had been safely in custody at Guantanamo Bay, in exchange for one American military prisoner in Afghanistan who had been a deserter (as confirmed by his fellow soldiers). Then the president held a ceremonial love-in at the Rose Garden with the parents of the accused traitor.

      In 2011, the government of Egypt had been headed by a staunch ally of the United States for 30 years in Mubarak. The Egyptian president made sure the treaty with Israel was enforced and our two nations were united. Then came the “Arab Spring” which was nothing more than a government take-over by the Muslim Brotherhood. 

     What did President Obama do? He supported the new government headed by Mohammed Morsi, leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood was, and is known, to be the mother organization that spawned Hamas, provided roots for Osama bin Laden and engineers radical Islamic infiltration of western civilization for the purpose of Islamic conquest. Yet, our president sided with the Brotherhood and against our proven ally.

     With the world succumbing to racial Islamic chaos, our president refuses to even utter the term “Islam” in associating worldwide terror. The Fort Hood massacre, in which the Islamist screamed Allah Akbar before shooting 41 people, was deemed a “workplace violence” by our president.

     Meanwhile, with the world in crisis and the modern Nazi movement cloaked in religion spreads into the free world, Barack Obama continues to diminish the dignity of the office of the president.  Check this out:
