Barack Obama's Stealth Socialism

Editorial Posted 7/28/2008

Throughout his career, Obama has worked closely with a network of stone-cold socialists and full-blown communists striving for "economic justice."

He's been traveling in an orbit of collectivism that runs from Nairobi to Honolulu, and on through Chicago to Washington.

What’s Really Eating Obama/Wright?

by Julia Gorin

Barack Obama has said that his mixed-race heritage would serve to make him a uniter. But the violently militant roots of Obama’s church of 20 years, which advocate “the destruction of the white enemy,” along with Obama’s well known associations with hate-mongers point to the opposite being true.

In fact, it is precisely Obama’s mixed-race heritage that handicaps him in the task of racial unifying. This is something that was explained to me several years ago in an email from a reader in Colorado, who seemed to be acquainted with the kinds of complexes that develop in “light-skinned” black people.

Grover Norquist: A Troubling Influence

By Frank J Gaffney Jr.
FrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, December 09, 2003

It is with a heavy heart [...] that I am posting this article, which is the most complete documentation extant of Grover Norquist’s activities in behalf of the Islamist Fifth Column. I have confronted Grover about these issues and have talked to others who have done likewise. But it has been left to Frank Gaffney and a few others, including Daniel Pipes and Steven Emerson, to make the case and to suffer the inevitable recriminations that have followed earlier disclosures of some aspects of this story.

Up to now, the controversy over these charges has been dismissed or swept under the rug, as a clash of personalities or the product of one of those intra-bureaucratic feuds so familiar to the Washington scene. Unfortunately, this is wishful thinking. The reality is much more serious. No one reading this document to its bitter end will confuse its claims and confirming evidence with those of a political cat fight. On the basis of the evidence assembled here, it seems beyond dispute that Grover Norquist has formed alliances with prominent Islamic radicals who have ties to the Saudis and to Libya and to Palestine Islamic Jihad, and who are now under indictment by U.S. authorities. Equally troubling is that the arrests of these individuals and their exposure as agents of terrorism have not resulted in noticeable second thoughts on Grover’s part or any meaningful effort to dissociate himself from his unsavory friends.

Killing for religion is justified, say third of Muslim students

A third of Muslim students in Britain believe killing someone in the name of religion is justified, a new poll claims.

By Patrick Sawer

Last Updated: 1:00AM BST 27 Jul 2008

The survey found that extreme Islamist ideology has a profound influence on a significant minority of Muslims on campuses across the country.

The findings will concern police chiefs, the security services and ministers, who are struggling with radicalisation among Muslim communities.

The YouGov poll was conducted for the Right-wing think tank, the Centre for Social Cohesion, at 12 universities, including Imperial College and Kings College London. It also found:

  • 40 per cent support the introduction of sharia into British law for Muslims
  • a third back the notion of a worldwide Islamic caliphate (state) based on sharia law
  • 40 per feel it is unacceptable for Muslim men and women to mix freely
  • 24 per cent do not think men and women are equal in the eyes of Allah
  • a quarter have little or no respect for homosexuals.

Obama's $845 billion U.N. plan forwarded to U.S. Senate floor

'Global Poverty Act' to cost each citizen $2,500 or more

Posted: July 25, 2008

By Bob Unruh © 2008 WorldNetDaily

The U.S. Senate soon could debate whether you, your spouse and each of your children – as well as your in-laws, parents, grandparents, neighbors and everyone else in America – each will spend $2,500 or more to reduce poverty around the world.

The plan sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, is estimated to cost the U.S. some $845 billion over the coming few years in an effort to raise the standard of living around the globe.

S.2433 already has been approved in one form by the U.S. House of Representatives and now has been placed on the Senate Legislative Calendar for pending debate.

The BBC's contamination

Melanie Phillips

Tuesday, 15th July 2008

It is really quite obscene that the BBC repeatedly portrays the victims of mass murder – Americans, Israelis – as its perpetrators and its actual perpetrators as victims. The BBC is doing the work of the enemies of civilisation for them. In a less degraded political environment this would be raised in Parliament and the BBC called sharply to account for such infernal propaganda. The fact that this complainant received a pro-forma get-lost letter written for complaining Muslims – the letter went on to say that

The BBC is satisfied that, whilst asking some difficult questions about religious fundamentalism, it is not blasphemous

-- shows all too clearly that BBC group-think has now fully absorbed the inversion of truth and lies, victim and victimiser, right and wrong that forms the Muslim culture of grievance, and has made it its own. Truly terrifying.

One of the ultimate motivations for Islam’s core

July 21st, 2008 by Andrew Bostom

With regard to one of the ultimate motivations for Islam’s core, theological Antisemitism, this observation from Tor Andrae’s 1936 biography of Muhammad provides a remarkably concise, pellucid formulation:

“One must see Mohammed’s cruelty toward the Jews against the background of the fact that their scorn and rejection was the greatest disappointment of his life, and for a time they threatened completely to destroy his prophetic authority. For him, therefore, it was a fixed axiom that the Jews were the sworn enemies of Allah and His revelation. Any mercy toward them was out of the question.”

Bush shakes hand with mass murderer & ethnic cleanser

From left: Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, President Fatmir Seijdu and President Bush at the White House, 21 Jul 2008

Tuesday, July 22, 2008


by F. William Engdahl
July 22, 2008

Perhaps the most unsettling aspect of the current US Presidential campaign, aside from the studied avoidance of any serious proposals to address the worst economic depression since the 1930’s, is the fact that both major party candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain, have to date been stone silent on the most pressing issue of future war or peace, namely the steps taken by the Bush-Cheney Administration to encircle Russia with a new Iron Curtain of NATO member states, including strenuous efforts to push Ukraine and Georgia into NATO, and to establish an advanced nuclear missile defense system which, from a standpoint of military strategy, far from defense, puts the world on a hair-trigger to nuclear holocaust in the few years ahead.

In this context, it is equally disturbing how the Western major media and the Washington Administration have chosen to ignore what might be a last glimmer of hope for diplomatic resolution of a looming nuclear war by miscalculation. The present policy of the Bush Administration genuinely can be called Mutual Assured Destruction, MAD, as in the brilliant Kubrick film, Dr. Strangelove.

[…] The Russian Government in this critical global conjuncture, with US Presidential elections ahead, a growing global financial instability centered in the USA, and an EU elite confused about its place in the shifting world, is proposing three bold new ideas.

First is the creation of a unified North—a United States-EU-Russia alliance that implements coordinated security and economic policies. Russia would offer its natural resources, territorial, scientific and human potential for mutually beneficial integration with Europe and America.

Second, Russia asks that the West recognize the inevitability of the rise of non-Western powers such as especially China and cease trying to block their ascent by sabotage and military action such as occupation of Iraq and key oil sources. Washington and the EU instead should engage with the new powers using collective forums, such as the UN Security Council, to shape a non-confrontational peaceful order.

The third, and perhaps the most bold and most obvious, Medvedev proposes reshaping the present failed global economic order that was built up after 1944 around a US-dominated International Monetary Fund as a de facto neo-colonial weapon of securing cheap raw materials and imposing North dominance on Africa, Latin America and Asian nations. He proposes instead the North share some of its gains with the South before it is too late.

[read article]

Comment: Mr Engdahl is addressing an issue with as much importance as the price and availability of oil. [He did leave out a piece of the picture: the Western agenda in the 1990’s to break up Yugoslavia and bomb it in 1999 which drove Russia into strategic alliance with China. The Western agenda to encircle Russia is a cold war policy that both Clinton and Bush have continued. If you are stuck in the illusion of American bipolar politics then you criticize Bush but not Clinton, or vice versa. The truth is that both parties are on the same ‘get Russia’ agenda and both parties support the Islamic jihad in the Balkans.] I am amazed that for a second time the West has the one in 500 year opportunity to bring Russia into the Western alliance (how else can you interpret ‘the creation of a unified North’?), which would create a 360 degree northern hemisphere zone of peace and prosperity. We lost the first chance in the 1990’s during Clinton’s watch and I doubt that Bush has any interest, and if you look at the people around both McCain and Obama then it’s a non-starter. Russia, a land that has to look both East and West (study its history), can see the future better than America which thinks it will be king of the mountain forever.

Cyprus solution, please

Washington Post July 20 2008
By Kathryn Cameron Porter

Thirty-four years after the Turkish military invasion of Cyprus, the illegal occupation continues, perpetuating the division of the island and its people which the United States has allowed to go on since Henry Kissinger duplicitously handed Turkey a piece of the small island nation.

More than three decades later, there is one Turkish soldier for every two Turkish Cypriot citizens for a total of 43,000 occupying troops, a staggering figure that far exceeds U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

Tragically, human rights abuses are widespread in the 37 percent of Cyprus' landmass which remains under Turkish occupation and control. Meanwhile, nearly 200,000 Greek Cypriots have been forced from their homes, becoming refugees in their own country. Waves of unlawful settlers numbering 160,000 have been transferred from the Turkish mainland onto Cyprus (with a total population of 800,000) in a systematic effort to change the demographic composition of the island — a clear violation of international humanitarian law. The displacement of Greek Cypriots illustrates Turkey's sinister intention to achieve soft ethnic cleansing.

They Say Le Pen "Mopped the Floor" with Sarkozy

by Dymphna


A video of Le Pen’s attack on Sarkozy at the European Parliament can be found here. Whether or not you understand French, I recommend watching this just for the times the camera pans to a dour Sarkozy, listening to Le Pen's fervent attack. Stay till the bitter end, when the camera fades to a still frame of an unhappy French President. Great image!

Perhaps some of our European readers can tell whether Le Pen is being laughed at or laughed with. There are certainly some amused faces, but the joke is not obvious to this American.

Here is a transcript in French of Le Pen’s speech.

Obama’s Birth Certificate – CHANGE you can believe in

From Atlas Shrugs

Techdude delivers a final report that exceeds my wildest expectations. It is irrefutable, empirical evidence - Obama's birth certificate is a forgery. Why? Why a COLB (certificate of live birth) forgery? That is the question.

My deepest thanks and appreciation for Techdude's unwavering commitment to the truth despite the threats and harassment, the slashed tires and the dead animal on his porch.

Insofar as "techdude's" credentials, he is an active member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, American College of Forensic Examiners, The International Society of Forensic Computer Examiners, International Information Systems Forensics Association - the list goes on.

The African-Arab-Muslim-Manchurian POTUS Candidate

The Jihad Candidate - by Rich Carroll

[...] Find a candidate who can get away with lying about their father being a ‘freedom fighter’ when he was actually part of the most corrupt and violent government in Kenya’s history. Find a candidate with close ties to The Nation of Islam and the violent Muslim overthrow in Africa, a candidate who is educated among white infidel Americans but hides his bitterness and anger behind a superficial toothy smile. Find a candidate who changes his American name of Barry to the Muslim name of Barak Hussein Obama, and dares anyone to question his true ties under the banner of ‘racism’. Nurture this candidate in an atmosphere of anti-white American teaching and surround him with Islamic teachers. Provide him with a bitter, racist, anti-white, anti-American wife, and supply him with Muslim Middle East connections and Islamic monies. Allow him to be clever enough to get away with his anti-white rhetoric and proclaim he will give $834 billion taxpayer dollars to the Muslim controlled United Nations for use in Africa. Install your candidate in an atmosphere of deception because questioning him on any issue involving Africa or Islam would be seen as ‘bigoted racism’; two words too powerful to allow the citizenry to be informed of facts. Allow your candidate to employ several black racist Nation of Islam Louis Farrakhan followers as members of his Illinois Senatorial and campaign staffs.

Bush Meeting with 'Terrorist, War Criminal, and Racketeer' Hashim Thaci

GRACANICA, Serbia, July 17, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The following statement was issued today by His Grace ARTEMIJE, Bishop of Ras and Prizren, and pastor of Orthodox Christians in the Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija:

"On July 21, President George W. Bush is scheduled to meet with Hashim Thaci, styled by some 'Prime Minister' of the separatist Albanian Muslim administration in the Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija. As pastor of the Orthodox Christian people of Kosovo, I protest to the fullest possible degree the fact that President Bush would bring dishonor on his office and sully the good name of the American nation by receiving such an infamous terrorist, war criminal, and organized crime chieftain.

"Such a meeting is particularly disturbing in light of President Bush's aspiration to leadership in the struggle of decent people everywhere against global jihad terrorism. In another context, he likened association with terrorists to seeking accord with the Nazis before World War II. Has he now changed his mind?

High Finance and Bolshevik Principles

by J. R. Nyquist

Weekly Column Published: 07.18.2008

I t was Joshua Rosner, writing in the Financial Times on Tuesday, who said it best. “In a capitalist economy, losers are expected to take losses and winners to gain.” But that’s not the way it works today, is it? More than three Decades ago, Richard Nixon famously said: “We’re all Keynesians now.” In 2008 we can go further. If George Bush had Nixon’s grasp of affairs, he would be forced to admit: “We’ve all become socialists, despite our lip service to the free market.”

Rosner says we have begun to nationalize bad assets. From there it is a small step to the nationalization of good assets. In fact, the two things logically entail one another. As Rosner asserts, we have officially lost faith in the market. We have lost faith in the source of our prosperity. We no longer abide the creative destruction of the market process. We do not want the suffering that naturally attends real growth. Good things and only good things are demanded. Losses are unacceptable, even though these always attend genuine achievement. Everybody has to be a winner.

Srebrenica Serbs Mourn Alone

July 12th, 2008, Byzantine Blog

On Saturday, Bosnian Serbs have again gathered to commemorate more than 3,500 Srebrenica Serbs massacred by Naser Oric's mujahedins stationed in the UN "safe haven" during the Bosnian civil war (1992-1995).
[Picture: Hollywood actress Mia Farrow joins Muslim prayers for the Bosnian mujahedins killed in the battle for Srebrenica. July 11, 2007, Bosnia-Herzegovina]

Unlike the day before, July 11th, when the world descends on Srebrenica to collectively mourn Bosnian jihadists who lost their lives during the battle for Srebrenica (July 1995), the butchery of Bosnian Serb civilians -- women, children and elderly from Srebrenica and surrounding villages -- went by, this year yet again, without the thunderous expressions of the righteous indignation by the Western ambassadors serving in Bosnia-Herzegovina, without the EU High Representative's moving and thoughtful speeches, without the foreign reporters and photographers hunting the most heart wrenching expression of grief, without the eclectic mix of obscure celebrities and Hollywood stars, eager to show their "human side" to the world, while straining to look pretty under the Muslim head coverings, in the midst of bellowing praises to Allah and ritualistic animal slaughter.

This year's commemoration of the victims of Oric's cutthroats and the tragedy of the Serbian people in this region was additionally burdened by the fact that the appellation board of the Hague tribunal had acquitted the only man thus far accused by the Hague for the genocidal crimes against Srebrenica Serbs, Naser Oric.

Comment: Mia Farrow, another useful idiot in the West that will never miss an opportunity to run interference for the followers of the pedophile prophet of mass murder.

Fools like Mia Farrow should not be pitied, they should be damned to hell.

Demand Destruction Stops at the Border

Peter Schiff
Jul 11, 2008

When the dollar was king, demand here was strong. American consumers, armed with the mighty greenback, flexed their muscle and priced foreign consumers out of the market. Now that the dollar is a 98 pound weakling, foreign consumers are returning the favor, and are kicking sand in our faces. So as more goods and resources are consumed abroad, Americans will be forced to consume less. Demand creation abroad leads to demand destruction at home.

The Islamist-Leftist Allied Menace

by Daniel Pipes
National Review
July 14, 2008

"Here are two brother countries, united like a single fist," said socialist Hugo Chávez during a visit to Tehran last November, celebrating his alliance with Islamist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Che Guevara's son Camilo, who also visited Tehran last year, declared that his father would have "supported the country in its current struggle against the United States." They followed in the footsteps of Fidel Castro, who in a 2001 visit told his hosts that "Iran and Cuba, in cooperation with each other, can bring America to its knees." For his part, Ilich Ramírez Sánchez ("Carlos the Jackal") wrote in his book L'islam révolutionnaire ("Revolutionary Islam") that "only a coalition of Marxists and Islamists can destroy the United States."

It's not just Latin American leftists who see potential in Islamism. Ken Livingstone, the Trotskyite former mayor of London, literally hugged prominent Islamist thinker Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Ramsey Clark, the former U.S. attorney general, visited Ayatollah Khomeini and offered his support. Noam Chomsky, the MIT professor, visited Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah and endorsed Hezbollah's keeping its arms. Ella Vogelaar, the Dutch minister for housing, neighborhoods, and integration, is so sympathetic to Islamism that one critic, the Iranian-born professor Afshin Ellian, has called her "the minister of Islamization."

[...] The burgeoning alliance of Western leftists and Islamists ranks as one of today's most disturbing political developments, one that impedes the West's efforts to protect itself. When Stalin and Hitler made their infamous pact in 1939, the Red-Brown alliance posed a mortal danger to the West and, indeed, to civilization itself. Less dramatically but no less certainly, the coalition today poses the same threat. As seven decades ago, this one must be exposed, rejected, resisted, and defeated.

Comment: What Daniel Pipes doesn't mention is that even fascists are in alliance with the Left and the Islamists. I ran into this while in the process of a through study of the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990's. This Left/Islamist/Fascist alliance is a little known, but ominous fact. This portends calamitous events to come, like the late 1930's. I cannot understand why so many are blind to this.

Bat Ye'or Interview

'I always thought I'd be writing novels," says Bat Ye'or, her wistfulness somehow adding an extra touch of class to her thick French accent. "Not such serious work."

Given the gravity of her subject matter, and what some might consider her alarmist way with words, this is hard to believe. But then, so is the historian's life story, which is the stuff that sagas are made of.

Jihad and Islamic Antisemitism

By Andrew G. Bostom
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, May 22, 2008

Text of a lecture delivered at The Hudson Institute, Washington, DC, Wednesday, May 21, 2008

My presentation today will introduce evidence—adduced to considerably greater extent in The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism—which elucidates how the uniquely Islamic institution of jihad war, its corollary institution, dhimmitude, and specific Antisemitic motifs in Islamic theology, including Islamic eschatology—operate in tandem with regard to global jihadist aspirations, and the annihilationist Muslim Jew-hatred directed at the Jews of Israel.

In April 1948, the Grand Mufti of Egypt, Sheikh Muhammad Mahawif, issued a fatwa declaring jihad in Palestine obligatory for all Muslims. The Jews, he maintained, intended “to take over ... all the lands of Islam..”

[...] Earlier remarks of Hamas MP and cleric Yunis Al-Astal, which aired on Palestinian Al-Aqsa TV April 11, 2008 provide complementary, and even more revealing context:

Very soon, Allah willing, Rome will be conquered, just like Constantinople was, as was prophesized by our prophet Muhammad. Today, Rome is the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital, which has declared its hostility to Islam, and has planted the brothers of apes and pigs [i.e., Jews, Koran 2:65, 5:60, and 7:166, and other foundational Muslim texts] in Palestine in order to prevent the reawakening of Islam – this capital of theirs [Rome] will be an advanced post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, and even Eastern Europe. I believe that our children or our grandchildren will inherit our Jihad

These words debunk widely accepted tropes that Hamas is merely a nationalist movement, albeit religious, desiring a “Palestinian homeland” in the territories of Gaza (which it already possesses), Judea, and Samaria. Hamas’ blatantly annihilationist rhetoric towards Jews and Israel within the 1949 armistice borders indicates that the jihadist organization wishes to replace Israel.

Daniel Ortega was (and remains) a Communist thug

By Debbie Schlussel

Ortega seized the Jewish Community Center and the Managua Synagogue and turned them into a Palestinian youth club and an officers club for P.L.O. officers who trained in Nicaragua. But before he seized the synagogue, during Friday Night Sabbath prayers, his Sandinistas set fire to the synagogue and barred the doors shut so people were trapped inside (they were fortunately rescued by Contra-allied individuals). Ortega forced the leader of the Managua Jewish community to sweep the streets of Managua to embarrass and degrade him, and he seized all of his real estate. Most of the Jews in Nicaragua fled to avoid a Sandinista Holocaust, after they witnessed Ortega's KrystallNacht. (More about what happened to Nicaragua's Jews under Ortega here and here.)

“Dhimmi life under Islam” and “PC life in a multicultural world”

We’re All Children Now?
An adolescent culture.
Diana West interview

I would describe PC life in a multiculti world as being marked in part by self-censorship based in fear — fear of professional failure, opprobrium or social ostracism. I would also describe this same self-censorship as a form of childishness. During one lecture on The Death of the Grown-Up, I took a question from a man who wondered, in a rather agitated way, if I were actually saying that multiculturalism is juvenile. I hadn’t phrased things that way, but, on quick reflection, I told him that, yes, that was indeed what I was saying. The fact is, buying into multiculturalism — the outlook that sees all cultures as being of equal value (except the West, which is essentially vile) — requires us to repress our faculties of logic, and this in itself is an infantilizing act. I mean, it’s patently illogical to accept and teach our children the notion that a culture that has brought liberty and penicillin to the masses is of no greater value than others that haven’t. In accepting the multicultural worldview, we deceive ourselves into inhabiting a world of pretend where certain truths are out of bounds and remain unspoken — even verboten.

Our adoption of PC norms and multicultural speech codes, of course, came about independently of the historical conditions of the dhimmi, who, as Jews and Christians living under Islamic law, developed cultures of self-censorship and self-denial at a far remove from anything going on in the United States. But that doesn’t negate the comparison between what may be regarded as two cultures of self-censorship. Indeed, it helps explain the terrifying compatibility between the conditions historian Bat Ye’or has chronicled as “dhimmitude” and the multicultural mindset that flourishes in a post-grown-up world.
