Palin: Feminism's greatest leap forward since Madonna

By Camile Paglia

Conservative though she may be, I felt that Palin represented an explosion of a brand new style of muscular American feminism. At her startling debut on that day, she was combining male and female qualities in ways that I have never seen before. And she was somehow able to seem simultaneously reassuringly traditional and gung-ho futurist. In terms of redefining the persona for female authority and leadership, Palin has made the biggest step forward in feminism since Madonna channeled the dominatrix persona of high-glam Marlene Dietrich and rammed pro-sex, pro-beauty feminism down the throats of the prissy, victim-mongering, philistine feminist establishment.

[...] The witch-trial hysteria of the past two incendiary weeks unfortunately reveals a disturbing trend in the Democratic Party, which has worsened over the past decade. Democrats are quick to attack the religiosity of Republicans, but Democratic ideology itself seems to have become a secular substitute religion. Since when did Democrats become so judgmental and intolerant? Conservatives are demonized, with the universe polarized into a Manichaean battle of us versus them, good versus evil. Democrats are clinging to pat group opinions as if they were inflexible moral absolutes. The party is in peril if it cannot observe and listen and adapt to changing social circumstances.

Interview With Geert Wilders

From Weasel Zippers

ZIP: There seems to be no stopping the slow death of Christianity in Europe bundled with the rise of Islam. If things keep going the way they're going, what will Europe look like in 20 years?

Wilders:At the University of San Diego, they calculated that in 12 years from now, in 2020, twenty five percent of Europe’s population will be Muslim. Bernard Lewis predicts that Europe will have a Muslim majority at the end of this century. If European countries don’t take action now, I feel that these predictions may come true. Then Europe will have become Eurabia

ZIP:Do you see any way in which a "religion" that follows the Koran as its sole source of guidance integrate with a Judeo-Christian society?

Wilders: No I don’t. Islam is not an ideology that is prepared to integrate, let alone assimilate. It wants to dominate. The Quran is at the core of Islam and it states clearly that Jews are apes and pigs and non-Muslims should be butchered. Such a violent, totalitarian ideology will never reconcile itself with Western values like the separation of church and state, equality of men and women, equality of hetero- and homosexuals and liberty in general. On the contrary, it will want to destroy those values.

From Keith Ellison to Barack Obama

Scott Johnson of Powerline

After Barack Obama clinched the Democratic presidential nomination this past June, I set out a comparison between Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison and Barack Obama. (Minnesota's Fifth District covers Minneapolis and its inner-ring suburbs.) I think the comparison remains both valid and illuminating. I am taking the liberty of revisiting my argument this morning.

Watching the emergence of Barack Obama this year I have experienced at least a slight sense of déjà vu. With modifications and variations, the Obama phenomenon was anticipated by the rise of Keith Ellison in 2006.

OBAMA'S ATTRACTION TO MARXISM

By Neal Boortz

You need to understand that what I'll be talking about in this segment is totally and completely off limits. You're going to read some notes about Barack Obama's past statements and associations .. negative statements and negative associations. You will not read about these associations in the mainstream media. That would be because the mainstream media – and by that I mean the Beltway and New York City media – are totally and completely dedication to the election of Barack Obama as our next president. For the reporters and editors that comprise what used to be our most trusted source for news all pretentions of objectivity have been out the window. The new standards for reporting a news story are who, what, when, where, how and will it hurt Barack Obama. If the story can hurt Obama, and if it can be quietly killed, so it shall be.

Question for you, dear listener. If someone could come up with something that John McCain wrote a book or an article about 20 years ago in which he detailed his attraction to members of the Ku Klux Klan during his college years? Do you think for a minute that this would not be at the top of the front page of every newspaper in the country? Not to mention leading every television newscast.

But what if we have a candidate writing about his attraction to Marxism during his college years? News? Well, if that person is going to be on the presidential ballot on election day, you would think it would be news. Well .. that person IS on the ballot on election day, and it is most certainly NOT news.

Indonesia, Terrorism, and Barry Soetoro

by Baron Bodissey

Barry Soetoro the Chameleon: he might be the sock puppet of the Weather Underground, the militant leftists who planned to murder 25 million Americans.

He supports his Kenyan family member, Marxist/Islamist demagogue, and instigator of the slaughter of Christians, Raila Odinga, who also had the same slogan: ““Kenyans are now yearning for change”, and in return supports Obama. Odinga kicked out Jerome Corsi for writing a critical book on Obama, and Obama didn’t oppose it. Obama did also not oppose burning Christians alive.

Anyway, whether or not Obama wants to implement the Cloward and Piven Strategy and have the white American middle class queue at the soup kitchens of the State and turn the USA into the USSA, Indonesian Muslims will be excited to see a Kenyan-born devoted Indonesian Muslim become the President of the USA.

It will embolden the Islamists to roll out sharia from west to east over the archipelago. Nothing and nobody will stop them.

Coming soon: the ACORN Constitution

By Melanie Phillips

Now we can see how foolish are all those who persist in thinking that as a ‘community organiser’ Obama was just a kind of souped-up charity worker. As has been pointed out on this blog and in numerous investigations published on the net, ‘community organising’ is straight out of the Alinsky/ Gramsci Marxist playbook – a means of radicalising the proletariat so that it takes power and overturns the values of the society. Instead of the founding Fathers and the Supreme Court, America is about to get a new constitution written by the thugs of ACORN.

Now we can see the change that we all have to believe in. It is America itself which is to be changed -- and the liberty that it defends crushed by state control.

As history tells us, sometimes democratic elections bring to power a leader who threatens freedom. This is just such a moment.

A Sobering Look Ahead to Barack Obama’s America

October 30, 2008 - by Bernard Chapin

We are at the threshold. Increased regulations, earning confiscations, misappropriations, and the Draconian measures inherent to expanded government will impoverish everyone and imperil our liberty. Obama will morph the impending recession into a depression. How surprising it is that economic turmoil benefited him in the polls. The assumption that voters should turn to the political left in a time of economic crisis makes about as much sense as extinguishing a fire with lighter fluid.

Last Advice Before Election Day: Vote for National Survival

Dr. Walid Phares

October 29, 2008


The flames of the urban uprisings in France, of the train bombings in Madrid, of the subway blasts in London and the school massacre in Beslan are only writings on the wall. The OPEC aggression against the US economy, the formation of gas cartels by Iran, Qatar and Venezuela with the enticement to Russia to join; all that are just ominous signs of what is ahead. And in such a world environment, US homeland security seems to be where the final game will be played. As an analyst of terrorist strategies, I do believe that the most dangerous stages for our national security are yet to come and my concerns are very high as to how to address them. The penetration of our systems, including educational, legal, bureaucratic, technological, defense and security by the Jihadists is ongoing and is projected to expand. The world may have harsh crises but no crisis can equate the collapse of US Homeland Security. Al Qaeda has often stated that it wishes to commit genocide of four million Americans, including women and children. Iranian President Ahmadinejad and his regime have openly stated that a world without America is possible and better. These attitudes, if anything, indicate that the American national homeland is a target, a real target. If the enemy is successful one time in blasting our defense system to the core, the entire debate about the economy is over because there won’t be one to discuss.

There are large segments in our society which have been disabled from understanding that the nation is at risk. They were made to think that this war against us is a matter of foreign policy and a President who can just “talk” to some people out there will simply solve it and maintain the paychecks flowing. Many among us don’t understand that the world around us can simply crumble if we don’t have leadership that can strike a balance between defending the country and the free world and at the same time managing the economy successfully. But the bottom line is that these two are linked, deeply linked.

The Crack Up Boom, Part XI

by Ty Andros, Editor, Tedbits Newsletter| October 28, 2008

We are nearing the first crescendo of the unfolding Crack-up Boom. As outlined in the 2008 outlook entitled “Wolf Wave, aka Thrill ride” the markets are set to experience an emotional and financial EXPLOSION. A coming explosion outlined many times since the April 2007 Tedbits “Fingers of Instability” series first identified the WOLFE wave. Those predictions have since materialized in a grander manner then I ever could have anticipated.

Incomes are COLLAPSING throughout the G7 and much of the world. The finest assets on the planet are about to land into NEW hands as their current owners were, as Warren Buffet puts it, “swimming naked when the tide went out”, and now they will pay the ultimate price of surrendering their most valuable possessions and businesses for pennies on the dollar. Make no mistake, it has been done intentionally by the banking cartels which own and control the Federal Reserve and have done this according to a well worn playbook. That the public is REPLACING worthless coupons, called G7 currencies, with their own future earnings is “right by the playbook”, for to them money is easily replaced by the stroke of a keyboard. Even King Midas would have been jealous.

Since the beginning of September, up to over 7 trillion dollars, Pounds, Euros, Swiss Francs, Aussie Dollars, Korean Won, etc. have been printed out of thin air and the bill for them has been sent to you and your children. Perpetual slavery of inextinguishable debt brought to you by your public servants and their partners in the international banking cartels. When crisis appears, you are in the most danger you can imagine and this time is no different, as they use FEAR (false evidence appearing real) to “save” you from their MALFEASANCE and corruption.

Media are in overdrive to save their savior

Socialism We Can Believe In

By Ben Johnson
FrontPageMagazine.com | Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Now that a 2001 public radio interview has surfaced to confirm The One has plotted to redistribute middle class wealth since the beginning of his political career, the media are in overdrive to save their savior. In a burst of “news” stories culled directly from the talking points of the George Soros-funded Media Matters, a string of reporters have accused the McCain/Palin campaign of misrepresenting Obama’s statements and ideology. In the process, these impartial journalists and analysts for the nation’s most prestigious media outlets have obfuscated more than McCain could manage in his most imaginative “rhetorical flourish.”

[...] one is left with the impression his is merely a meandering historical argument of refined legal theory, using highly specified language that does not mean what it sounds like. Normal people like Joe the Plumber cannot possibly comprehend it. However, all these media reports distort the facts and leave a false impression that covers up the explosive revelation contained in his own words: Barack Obama believes the Constitution embodies a “fundamental flaw” in the fabric of America “that continues to this day,” has pined for “economic justice” for at least a decade, seeks political power to implement “wealth redistribution” with the aid of Congress, implies the Supreme Court should “break free” from the “constraints” of the Founders, believes public financing of abortion is an “important” aspect of the struggle, and has promised an “activist” Executive Branch to enforce his socialistic vision.

The Trans-National Elites and the Populist Response

From Whiskey’s Place

Recently, Winds of Change put up a post asserting that Obama's probable victory in the race for President signals a new model for electoral success. Boiled down to it's essentials, the post argues that trans-national elites have become fed up with America, American patriotism and populism, and are making themselves heard by telling America what to do, how to do it, in an auction available to the highest bidder. This is similar to posts by "Wretchard" at the Belmont Club arguing the same thing.

The essentials are proposed as this:

­ Media Support that suppresses any reporting of illegality in fundraising or anything else by Obama.

­ Vast Monetary advantage by tapping the global pool of (illegal) foreign contributions from trans-national elites, including Saudi, Pakistani, Hamas, and Hezbollah/Iranian money.

­ Government funded vote fraud and mass-rallying organizations (ACORN).

­ Intimidation and bullying ala The Coming Thugocracy

This model, that of a trans-national elite, taking steps to control the US Presidential election, does seem to describe what Obama's campaign really is. There are other data points. San Francisco columnist Mark Morford describes Obama as a "Lightworker", a near-parody of the WB series "Charmed" "White Lighter" characters.

Here's where it gets gooey. Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.

[...] The more that Harold Myerson of the Washington Post writes about how America must "Abolish Whiteness" by such gems as this:

In a year when the Democrats have an African American presidential nominee, the Republicans now more than ever are the white folks' party, the party that delays the advent of our multicultural future, the party of the American past. Republican conventions have long been bastions of de facto Caucasian exclusivity, but coming right after the diversity of Denver, this year's GOP convention is almost shockingly -- un-Americanly -- white.

Kenyans Warn Americans About Obama Victory

Kenyans Warn Americans About Obama Victory

By Bill Wilson, Daily Jot News Service Senior Analyst

WASH—Oct 21—DJNS-- In recent days, readers from around the world have contacted me at The Daily Jot expressing their viewpoint on the U.S. presidential election. Many are concerned that the United States is headed in the wrong direction this election, especially with the possibility of electing Democratic nominee B. Hussein Obama. Normally, I wouldn’t put much credence into those who live in other countries regarding commentary on America’s elections, but these Christian men and women are very concerned from the standpoint that America always has been the standard bearer for helping people in need around the world, sending Christian ministries to spread the word of God, and generally that we do not understand the implications of an Obama victory.

A pastor from Kenya wrote: “I have received your email (Daily Jot) forwarded to me from my loving and great friend Larry who is the missionary in Russia, Uzbekistan. We have been praying that the Lord will do what He can to make the Americans feel good by the end of the day. So I will pray that the Americans get the best person they want which is their choice. Because I too fearing if the Obama can take over the leadership of that great Nation with the Muslim background it is very dangerous and I am wondering why the Americans are blind and they do not see, their eyes should be open to see the danger ahead of them…I am going to pray for you and your country and may God help you overcome this reproach.

Obama Affinity to Marxists Dates Back to College Days

By Bill Sammon FOXNews.com Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Barack Obama shrugs off charges of socialism, but noted in his own memoir that he carefully chose Marxist professors as friends in college.

Barack Obama laughs off charges of socialism. Joe Biden scoffs at references to Marxism. Both men shrug off accusations of liberalism.

But Obama himself acknowledges that he was drawn to socialists and even Marxists as a college student. He continued to associate with Marxists later in life, even choosing to launch his political career in the living room of a self-described Marxist, William Ayers, in 1995, when Obama was 34.

Obama's affinity for Marxists began when he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles.

"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully," the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, "Dreams From My Father." "The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."

Obama's interest in leftist politics continued after he transferred to Columbia University in New York. He lived on Manhattan's Upper East Side, venturing to the East Village for what he called "the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union."

The Lessons of Greed

by Thomas Fleming

I am not an economist. I do not want to be an economist, because I do not believe there is a science of economics, and from all I can gather there is no kind of economics being practiced today, at least in high official circles, except "voodoo economics." If I were wrong, then there would have been a consensus of economic experts on what would happen if, say, Congress deregulated the mortgage industry and encouraged lenders to issue mortgages for hundreds of thousands of dollars to people who might not be able to buy a cheap used car from Sleazeball Joe’s No-Money-Down used car lot.

[...] I may not know much about economics, but I know a thing or two things that Allan Greenspan does not know. It turns out that his inability to speak clearly is a reflection of his inability to think at all. He apparently believed his own free market rhetoric about open competition, and it is equally apparent that he did not read the the unabridged version of The Wealth of Nations in which Adam Smith explains that capitalists always seek to form, by fair means or foul, monopolies and cartels.

Socialist Warning Signs

By Dymphna

A picture is worth a thousand words, but a political cartoon is priceless. Especially a cartoon containing "racist" "socialist" warning signs.

Socialist Warning Sign

Obama is currently angry at Fox News for digging up an old Chicago Public Radio interview in which he voiced regret about the civil rights movement’s shift towards court solutions and away from what he considered the real goal: income redistribution.

[...] Look at this radical diatribe (editor’s note — is “radical” the new “racist”? Just askin’):

In the radio interview, Obama delved into whether the civil rights movement should have gone further than it did, so that when “dispossessed peoples” appealed to the high court on the right to sit at the lunch counter, they should have also appealed for the right to have someone else pay for the meal.

No, I’m not making this up. He really did say that.

The sacrifice of truth to power

Melanie Phillips

What’s happening in this terrifying, Orwellian US presidential race is the flip side of the madness that’s been on display since 9/11 itself, when swathes of the UK population decided that ‘America had it coming to it’ because it supported Israel, and that George W Bush was the most dangerous man on the planet. After the Iraq war started this irrationality swelled into pathological proportions on both sides of the Atlantic, when the ‘Bush lied, people died’ narrative fuelled a hatred of Bush and ‘the neocons’ exceeded in its hallucinatory and murderous venom only by the truly deranged way in which the media and intelligentsia systematically either ignored evidence that did not fit this narrative or, even more astoundingly, reported it in such a way that it delivered the opposite of what was actually happening or being said.

In this way not only has history been rewritten, not only have Britain and America been to a greater or lesser extent turned against themselves and demoralised by the propaganda of their mortal enemies recycled as truth by our fifth-column Big Media, but they have been incited to an ugly and dangerous level of irrationality, hatred and hysteria which history tells us presages the twilight of freedom. It is that media class which, in refusing to tell the public what it needs to know about Barack Obama, may now finally install in the White House the man who personifies the repudiation of the American power and western values that the media and left-wing intelligentsia (of which the media is the mouthpiece) have themselves spared no effort to destroy these past seven years.

[...] Mark Levin identifies a terrifying historical echo when he shudders that, such is the tide of irrationality running in this campaign, the American public appears to be falling under the cult-like spell of an authoritarian demagogue. He is surely correct. For all Obama’s laid-back, attractive appearance this election is being fought in an atmosphere of menace. Menace in the way ACORN is intimidating voters into multiple registrations. Menace in the way criminal donations to the Obama campaign have been institutionalised. Menace in the serial lies being told by Obama, Biden and the campaign rebuttal team. Menace in the way the few remaining proper journalists such as Stanley Kurtz are finding sources of information shut down and themselves shut out when they attempt to probe Obama’s deeply dubious associations. Menace in the smears and hysterical abuse directed at anyone who questions The One. Menace in the threat of violence if Obama doesn’t win. Menace in the pre-emptive smear that the only thing that could bring about an Obama defeat is the inherent racism of the American voters – a smear that potentially identifies all those who vote against him as public enemies.

Over the past seven years, the media has created the Big Lie that America is the biggest rogue state in the world, with Israel its proxy. Now it is ensuring that a man who will act on that very premise to crush America and destroy Israel will be placed in the White House to do so. It is not just that the west’s Big Media can no longer be trusted. It has become the most important weapon in the arsenal of the enemies of the free world.

Comment: America is about to enthrone its Fuhrer. This will only end in catastrophe.

Is America really going to do this?

Melanie Phillips

Obama thinks world conflicts are basically the west’s fault, and so it must right the injustices it has inflicted. That’s why he believes in ‘soft power’ — diplomacy, aid, rectifying ‘grievances’ (thus legitimising them, encouraging terror and promoting injustice) and resolving conflict by talking. As a result, he will take an axe to America’s defences at the very time when they need to be built up. He has said he will ‘cut investments in unproven missile defense systems’; he will ‘not weaponize space’; he will ‘slow our development of future combat systems’; and he will also ‘not develop nuclear weapons,’ pledging to seek ‘deep cuts’ in America’s arsenal, thus unilaterally disabling its nuclear deterrent as Russia and China engage in massive military buildups.

Michigan Cops Say Diva Michelle Obama "Won't Be Seen With Us, Allow Us in Her Presence"

By Debbie Schlussel

I thought that we were about to elect a President, not a queen. But Michelle Hussein Obama has other ideas.

[...] My Sergeant was providing security in a hallway as Mrs. Obama was moving from room to room for different reasons. He was told by the SS [DS: Secret Service] that when she came down his hall, he had to duck behind the corner and not allow her to see him. He questioned this several times to be sure he heard it right, and the SS agent (embarrassed of course) had to hide from her view, too.

[...] I have known in my career that don't want to be seen near cops are criminals....thats scary!

From Meccania to Atlantis - Part 1: The March of the Body Snatchers


European Commissioners opine that “Immigration Is Moral Necessity” and “Islam Is Welcome.” A French President predicts that “Arabic Is the Language of the Future.” A Moroccan becomes Mayor of Rotterdam. Europeans who wish to assert their ethnic identity and interests versus those of aliens are roughed up.

In the United States -- a country that has ruined itself through its own naïveté about human nature, about the world and about itself, the presidential election is being contested between a right-liberal candidate of the Stupid Party and a left-liberal candidate of the Evil Party. The latter’s position’s is that America’s wealth should be redistributed to the Afro-American “community” so that the country can have its salvation. He may have rephrased this idea in more unctuous words as his political shrewdness was increasing over the years, but essentially this is still the intention.

Yet, Mr. Obama is likely to win, partly due to electoral fraud of his supporters and fawning adulation by mainstream media that disseminate news and opinions filtered to put him in the White House.

With Barack Obama in the White House and his party on the way to a supermajority in Congress, soon enough the United States will be turning from a stupid form of capitalism to a stupid form of socialism, and from a stupid form of multiculturalism to an evil one – of the Eurabian kind. It will be Sweden West, without the virtues that ethnic Swedes still possess.

Kosovo: Lost to Serbia and to the West

Kosovo is therefore now decisively lost to the Serbs, and therefore to Christian civilisation. A war waged in the name of human rights in 1999 has led to nothing less than genocide – the wholesale eradication both of the Serb population of Kosovo since then (the few remaining Serbs live in ghettos) and of the historical memory of that population. In 1999, to justify the attack on Yugoslavia, the US State Department published a document called “Erasing History” which documented the alleged genocide against the Albanians. Now we know that the bulk of that document was war propaganda, its claims unproven despite years spent trying to prove them at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague. Yet “erasing history” is precisely what the Albanians have done in Kosovo since NATO occupied the province, and on its watch. They have also erased democracy, human rights, and all the basic tenets of common human decency. The history of the last ten years in Kosovo is nothing but tragedy and hypocrisy blended into one – a true death of the West and all it stands for.

Barack Hussein Obama and the Triumph of Marxism

[...] it's insane that the United States can even contemplate electing a person such as Obama. Americans will look like a defeated nation to the rest of the world if they pick an individual who has for a generation been a member of an organization dedicated to hating the majority population of the country. That's exactly why so many of their enemies want him elected. Meanwhile, 7 years after Saudi Arabian Muslims staged Jihadist attacks against the United States, the Saudis are systematically infiltrating the Western education system at all levels with pro-Islamic propaganda. Americans are outsourcing their industry to China, their education system to Saudi Arabia and their breeding to Mexico. This is not a wise strategy followed by a country that wants to remain a superpower, or simply continue to exist.

Judge Marinkovic: Racak was a Major Hoax

“I said it almost ten years ago, and I say it today: Racak was a major hoax! There was no ‘massacre of the innocent villagers’, but a legal and legitimate police action against the members of the terrorist organization of the so-called Kosovo Liberation Army”, investigating Judge Danica Marinkovic told Glas Javnosti.

At the time of Racak setup, Danica Marinkovic was the chief investigator of the event which took place in the Kosovo-Metohija village of Racak. This ugly hoax and the vile setup was orchestrated by Mr. Massacre, American CIA operative William Walker, who was sent to Serbian Kosovo province under the guise of the OSCE Mission chief, with a task to create a trigger event for the long-planned US-led NATO aggression and bombardment of Serbia which lasted almost three months.

Obama Bombshell Redistribution of Wealth Audio Uncovered

Further proof of Obama's desire to "redistribute the wealth" on Chicago Public Radio WBEZ FM from 2001

Obama Bombshell Audio Uncovered. He wants to Radically Reinterpret the Constitution to Redistribute Wealth.

New evidence of Armenian Genocide found

/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Recently, the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute’s efforts towards collection of new data on the Armenian genocide have experienced great success with the enrichment of AGMI’s collection of documentary photographs. The most recent discovery is a photo testifying of the Armenian Genocide and in particular the massacres of the Armenian population in the region of Mush, the AGMI told PanARMENIAN.Net.

The photograph has been acquired by the AGMI and was captured by Russian soldiers on the Caucasus front in 1915. It portrays the remains of the Armenian villagers who were burnt alive during the massacres of Mush.

This photograph is one of a kind. It is one of the well preserved photos discovered in an album called, “Album of refugees” published in Tiflis (1917). The album is consisted from 62 unique photos that demonstrate the events of the Armenian Genocide. However, only a few of the original 62 have survived and most of them are in dire conditions.

Nonetheless, the authenticity of the “Album of refugees” is demonstrated through the validity and great condition of this unique photo. On the back of this picture is a quote in Russian stating; “Armenians burnt alive in Sheykhalan by Turkish soldiers”. Furthermore, the photo is marked with the number 74, which indicates the existence of a larger collection of photographs captured by Russian soldiers during WWI.

Hence, the AGMI is adamant in locating the remaining photos of this collection which will sturdily assist the Institute’s efforts to demonstrate the complete picture of the first genocide of the 20th century.

Now we're sending him a billion dollars – by way of a reward.

Syrian Troops Enclose Lebanon, Rice Contacts Hamas

From DEBKA-Net-Weekly updated by DEBKAfile

October 25, 2008

As part of the incipient thaw in US relations with Damascus, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has relayed a friendly message to Hamas political leader Khalid Meshaal through Syrian foreign minister Walid Muallem’s aides.

Three years after forcing Syria to quit Lebanon, the Bush administration was ready to okay Syria’s massed troop concentration on Lebanese borders. Permission was granted in an apparently cursory meeting between Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Syrian foreign minister Walid Muallem on Sept. 27 at UN Center in New York.

Damascus counted this as validation of its drive for restored domination of Lebanon by dint of its military.

Washington also satisfied itself that the deal promised major profits:

1. The Assad government sounded willing for the first time to obstruct Hizballah and hold up its supplies of military hardware. [Dream On!!!]

2. It was inferred that Damascus was at last beginning, albeit two years late, to honor UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which banned arms supplies to Hizballah as part of the ceasefire which ended the Israel-Lebanon war. Syria and Iran mocked that resolution for two years by smuggling weapons in bulk to the Shiite terrorists. [What did you expect!!!]

3. Damascus’ implied willingness to go against Hizballah was taken by Washington as a measure of Assad’s readiness to stand up to Iran at present - and break away in the future. [Fantasy Land!!!]

4. And might not that willingness be extended to embrace Tehran’s other terrorist protégés, the Palestinian Hamas and Jihad Islami, both of whose headquarters have long been welcome in Damascus? [More Fantasy Land!!!]

Comment: The US Government can tell itself any fantasies it can imagine. This will only get worse with Obama, and even McCain. The US, before the altar of its stupidity, is sacrificing Lebanon. Its sickening to watch the decline of our great county. All of them, the Clintons, the Bushes, Gore, Powell, Brzezinski, the MSM, Academia, Carter, Islam, Socialists, Fascists, Communists, and the next US Administration, can all rot in hell!

Editing Their Way to Oblivion: Journalism Sacrificed For Power and Pensions

By Michael S. Malone

The traditional media is playing a very, very dangerous game. With its readers, with the Constitution, and with its own fate.

The sheer bias in the print and television coverage of this election campaign is not just bewildering, but appalling. And over the last few months I’ve found myself slowly moving from shaking my head at the obvious one-sided reporting, to actually shouting at the screen of my television and my laptop computer.

[...] what I object to (and I think most other Americans do as well) is the lack of equivalent hardball coverage of the other side - or worse, actively serving as attack dogs for Senators Obama and Biden. If the current polls are correct, we are about to elect as President of the United States a man who is essentially a cipher, who has left almost no paper trail, seems to have few friends (that at least will talk) and has entire years missing out of his biography. That isn’t Sen. Obama’s fault: his job is to put his best face forward. No, it is the traditional media’s fault, for it alone (unlike the alternative media) has had the resources to cover this story properly, and has systematically refused to do so.

Helena Ranta: Foreign Ministry tried to influence Kosovo reports

Forensic dentist Helena Ranta says that officials of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs had tried to influence the content of her reports in 2000, when Ranta was commissioned by the European Union to investigate the events of Racak in Kosovo.

Ranta put forward her allegations on Wednesday at the publication of her biography in Helsinki. The book was written by Kaius Niemi, a managing editor at Helsingin Sanomat.
“Three civil servants of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs expressed wishes by e-mail for more far-reaching conclusions”, Ranta said. “I still have the e-mails.”

According to Ranta, in the winter of 1999 William Walker, the head of the OSCE Kosovo monitoring mission, broke a pencil in two and threw the pieces at her when she was not willing to use sufficiently strong language about the Serbs.

Carl Jung and Islam

October 22nd, 2008 by Andrew Bostom

During an interview conducted in the late 1930s (published in 1939), Karl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychiatry, was asked “…had he any views on what was likely to be the next step in religious development?” Jung replied, in reference to the Nazi fervor that had gripped Germany,

We do not know whether Hitler is going to found a new Islam. He is already on the way; he is like Muhammad. The emotion in Germany is Islamic; warlike and Islamic. They are all drunk with wild god. That can be the historic future.

Although now, inexplicably, almost ignored in their entirety, writings produced for 100 years between the mid-19th through mid-20th centuries, by important scholars and intellectuals, in addition to Carl Jung—for example, the historians Jacob Burckhardt and Waldemar Gurian, Protestant theologian Karl Barth, and most notably, the renowned 20thG.H. Bousquet—referred to Islam as a despotic, or in 20th century parlance, totalitarian ideology.

Being imbued with fanaticism was the ultimate source of Muhammad’s great strength, and lead to his triumph as a despot, according to the 19th century Swiss historian Burckhardt:

Muhammad is personally very fanatical; that is his basic strength. His fanaticism is that of a radical simplifier and to that extent is quite genuine. It is of the toughest variety, namely doctrinaire passion, and his victory is one of the greatest victories of fanaticism and triviality. All idolatry, everything mythical, everything free in religion, all the multifarious ramifications of the hitherto existing faith, transport him into a real rage, and he hits upon a moment when large strata of his nation were highly receptive to an extreme simplification of the religious.

Comment: Carl Jung also commented that Muhammad taught the virtue of the sword.

US intelligence: Iran will be able to build first nuclear bomb by February 2009

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report

October 21, 2008, 8:46 PM (GMT+02:00)

US intelligence’s amended estimate, that Iran will be ready to build its first bomb just one month after the next US president is sworn in, is disclosed by DEBKAfile’s Washington sources as having been relayed as a guideline to the Middle East teams of both presidential candidates, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama.

Waiting for the “international community” to do the job of stopping Iran, as urged by governments headed by Ariel Sharon and Ehud Olmert - and strongly advocated Tzipi Livni, foreign minister and would-be prime minister - has been a washout. Iran stands defiantly on the threshold of a nuclear weapon.

No Outrage over (Muslim ) Ethnic Cleansing of Hindus

Dr. Richard L. Benkin

When Bangladesh won its independence from Pakistan in 1971, Hindus made up almost one in five of its citizens. Today, they are less than one in ten. Demographers and others estimate that approximately 20 million Bangladeshi Hindus have disappeared.

Twenty million people missing, at least that many more at risk; but no George Clooney or Angelina Jolie; no declarations from the UN, despite its mandate to stop such atrocities and help victims of the attempts. Its largely misnomered human rights organizations ignore the matter. Even the UN High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) has never helped the victims, though several organizations have documented their suffering. Earlier this year, I visited almost two dozen of their extra-legal camps in West Bengal, India, and saw their need for help. The international human rights industry, too, has been silent. Amnesty International (AI) has devoted pages upon web pages to the United States and Guantanamo and spends a high percentage of its resources criticizing Israeli democracy. Its current cover story is about Shia Muslims being “treated like second class citizens.” But to date it has shown no stomach to oppose what could be the worst case of ethnic cleansing in our time. The last time AI or Human Rights Watch gave the Bangladeshi Hindus even passing mention was in 2006.

Why Did They Hate Us in 1783?

Islamic Crusades Episode 5



Most on the Left say that Muslims hate us because of our "imperialistic" behavior in the Middle East. Many on the isolationist paleo-Right say that we provoked Islam's wrath because we left our own borders and meddled in foreign entanglements against the warnings of our founding fathers.

I ask both camps, what did we do to deserve Jihad in 1783?

What is it that Barack Obama knows that the rest of us don’t?

By Judi McLeod Monday, October 20, 2008

Is November 4, 2008 more a coup d’etat than it is a general election?

Is Election ’08 a mere formality?

With ACORN under investigation for registering bogus voters in at least 15 states; with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi--who leads a Congress even more unpopular than a fast-fading- from-the-scene George W. Bush--claiming “It’s 100% that Barack’s gonna win”, with Minister Louis Farrakhan claiming a “new beginning for the Nation of Islam” and Barack Hussein vowing to “change the world”, it certainly seems more coup d’etat than presidential election.

If it weren’t for the fact that the future of the United States of America is at stake; that a group of rich and powerful, elitist malcontents such as George Soros and Kyoto godfather Canadian Maurice Strong have an agenda to usher in a new era of Socialism for the USA, Obama for all of his media and Hollywood hype, would be something of a joke.

DEMS GET SET TO MUZZLE THE RIGHT

By BRIAN C. ANDERSON October 20, 2008

SHOULD Barack Obama win the presidency and Democrats take full control of Congress, next year will see a real legislative attempt to bring back the Fairness Doctrine - and to diminish conservatives' influence on broadcast radio, the one medium they dominate.

[article]

Comment: This time the Left intends to cement their hold on power like the Left did in Europe. This time they intend an irreversible castration of the Right. You can’t understand this unless you understand how it was done in Europe. All those on the Right that believe in freedom and private property in America should be terrified of a very possible Obama presidency and veto proof Democrat control of Congress. The Democrats are today essentially a European style Socialist party, much further to the Left compared to the Democrats in 1932 and 1965, and consider what they did then. This time it will be the end of the American myth that has animated US citizens since its founding, and the irreversible slide into national socialism and dhimmitude.

Hamas says VP candidate will help Obama with 'right policy' for Middle East

JERUSALEM – In an exclusive interview tonight, a senior Hamas official heaped praise on Sen. Joe Biden, calling him a "very nice" person and a "great man" whose record "speaks volumes" and who can be counted on by the terror group to engage in the "right policy" toward the Middle East.

During the interview with WND's Aaron Klein and WABC Radio's John Batchelor, the Hamas figure also expressed hope regarding Sen. Barack Obama's "vision for change," announcing Hamas will send Obama a letter of congratulation "the moment he will win the election."

Obama Fiction: Bad Prose, Big Lies and Bill Ayers

From Atlas Shrugs

Obama, a deeply dishonest and dangerous subversive, has described Mr. Ayers as "a guy who lives in my neighborhood," but "not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis."

Ya gotta love his contempt for the folks when Obomba he keeps repeating, William Ayer is is a professor. Next he'll be telling us that Hitler was a painter.

He "doesn't exchange ideas" but he reviews Ayer's book?

New revelations.

  • OBAMBI GAVE DOMESTIC TERRORIST AYERS MILLIONS! BOOM!
  • OBAMBI SHARED AN OFFICE WITH HIS TERROR MASTER AYERS. BOOM! BOOM!
  • OBAMBI RECEIVED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF REZKO DE FACTO GIFTS/GRAFT. BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
  • OBAMBI DID NOT WRITE HIS BOOK! AYERS DID! BAD DAH BING! BAD DAH BOOM!

This Chicago Annenberg Challenge website from 2002 shows the total amount of funds given to Bill Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop from 1995 to 2001. The amount is not the $175K I had reported earlier. According to this page, the total given under Barack Obama’s direct supervision was $1,056,162. Adding that amount to the money given by the Joyce Foundation and Woods Fund during Obama’s tenure brings the grand total to $1,968,718. Just shy of two million dollars! [...]

Now here’s the second and bigger break [...]

Bill Ayers and Barack Obama shared an office. Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop, the one Obama directed all that money too is located at 115 S. Sangamon Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607 (move over at Verum Serum who broke this story)

And this pearl over at the Chicago Tribune (who just endorsed Obama) - hih?

.....further evidence that Obama received a de facto gift from Rezko totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars, allowing him to afford his house. A gift that would violate Senate ethics rules and could very well be illegal.

Barack Obama - Narcissist or Merely Narcissistic?

Sam Vaknin, Ph.D. - 8/13/2008

Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist. Granted, only a qualified mental health diagnostician can determine whether someone suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and this, following lengthy tests and personal interviews. But, in the absence of access to Barack Obama, one has to rely on his overt performance and on testimonies by his closest, nearest and dearest.

Narcissistic leaders are nefarious and their effects pernicious. They are subtle, refined, socially-adept, manipulative, possessed of thespian skills, and convincing. Both types equally lack empathy and are ruthless and relentless or driven.

Perhaps it is time to require each candidate to high office in the USA to submit to a rigorous physical and mental checkup with the results made public.

I. Upbringing and Childhood

Obama's early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations. Mixed-race marriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was an infant (two years old). Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident. Then, his mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to Indonesia: a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised by a step-father. At the age of ten, he was whisked off to live with his maternal (white) grandparents. He saw his mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from his life in 1979. She died of cancer in 1995.

Pathological narcissism is a reaction to prolonged abuse and trauma in early childhood or early adolescence. The source of the abuse or trauma is immaterial: the perpetrators could be dysfunctional or absent parents, teachers, other adults, or peers.

The Making of a Fuehrer (from a Narcissist)

By Ali Sina

2008/09/22

I must confess I was not impressed by Sen. Barack Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident – a wholesome presidential package. It is so instinctive for most people to want to see blacks succeed. It is as if all humanity is carrying a collective guilt for what the ancestors of blacks endured. However, despite my initial interest in him, I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling. His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words.

It is surreal to see the level of hysteria in his admirers. This phenomenon is unprecedented in American politics. Women scream and swoon during his speeches. They yell and shout to Obama, “I love you.” Never did George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt. Martin Luther King Jr. or Ronald Reagan arouse so much raw emotion. Despite their achievements, none of them was raised to the rank of Messiah. The Illinois senator has no history of service to the country. He has done nothing outstanding except giving promises of change and hyping his audience with hope. It’s only his words, not his achievements that is causing this much uproar.

When cheering for someone turns into adulation, something is wrong. Excessive adulation is indicative of a personality cult. The cult of personality is often created when the general population is discontent. A charismatic leader can seize the opportunity and project himself as an agent of change and a revolutionary leader. Often, people, tired of the status quo, do not have the patience to examine the nature of the proposed change. All they want is change. During 1979, when the Iranians were tired of the dictatorial regime of the late Shah, they embraced Khomeini, not because they wanted Islam, but because he promised them change. The word in the street was, “anything is better than the Shah.” They found their error when it was too late.

[...] America is the bastion of freedom. The peace of the world depends on the strength of America, and its weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue nations. It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Castrists, the Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists and virtually all sworn enemies of America are so thrilled by the prospect of their man in the White House. America is on the verge of destruction. There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as predident.

Demonizing Joe The Plumber

Obama Campaign & Surrogates Launch Investigation! AP Digs through Birth and Court Documents to Destroy Him!


Regardless of where you live or what your occupation is the story of Joe the plumber should be a wake up call for the middle class of this nation; not because of the socialist undertones of Senator Obama's 'Spread The Wealth' policies, but rather because of the reaction of his campaign, his surrogates and the fringe-left media to anyone that questions "The One".

Yesterday, left-wing bloggers, the fringe-left media, Senator Obama's supporters, surrogates, Senator Biden and Obama himself made the decision to ignore the serious realities of Obama's policies that will hinder the opportunity for upward mobility and instead made the decision to attack the voice of the 'average Joe' who dared to question the Senator, launched investigations into his personal life and launched a campaign to destroy his credibility.

Now let me first say, that if you think in any manner that Joe's personal life, where he lived or how he is registered has any impact on the simple question that he asked Obama, then you are living in a fantasy world. Joe is no operative of the Republican party, his simple question to Obama was in no way planned and his personal life has no bearing on the reality that Senator Obama's tax proposals are rooted in the purely socialist belief that we should 'Spread The Wealth'. But instead of responding to Joe's charges and questions; instead of denouncing the reality that Obama's tax plan is an exercise in socialism, Obama's campaign and surrogates reacted by trying to destroy Joe the plumber.

Teach children what Muslims did for us? Is this a joke?

Jim Knight, the schools minister, claimed lessons in the scientific and cultural innovations of Islam over the centuries would give young Muslims a sense of worth and reduce their risk of becoming alienated and falling under the spell of radicals.

[article]

Comment: Islam contributed nothing, in fact it persecuted and killed the few brilliant it had. The scientific and cultural innovations that the West attributes to Islam in the middle ages was the product of Islam's dhimmi christians and jews. Islam only contributed female genital mutilation, mass murder, and pedophilia. If this Jim Knight is supposedly an educated man, then he is in actually stupid as a rock.

The "Obama Effect" on our Markets

From Bud Burrell blog

The systematic destruction of small business capital formation has a huge price, which is the elimination of all serious job and new wealth creation. The very same young people who will elect Obama in his scenario are the ones who won't find jobs to pay off their student loans, who will have to live at home for several years or more, who will have to move out of the US for really important jobs, and worse. The same middle class that is suffering now haven't begun to see the real problems they will encounter as they lose jobs in a socialist world, and when they find there is no place to go.

Losers in the Casino of Paper Money

Darryl Robert Schoon
Posted Oct 15, 2008

Buckminster Fuller in his introduction to The Critical Path in 1981 wrote:

Twilight of the
World's Power
Structures

Humanity is moving ever deeper into crisis - a crisis without precedent.

First, it is a crisis brought about by cosmic evolution, irrevocably intent upon completely transforming omnidisintegrated humanity from a complex of around-the-world, remotely deployed-from-one-another, differently colored, differently credoed, differently cultured, differently communicating, and differently competing entities into a complete integrated, comprehensively interconsiderate, harmonious whole.

Second, we are in an unprecedented crisis because cosmic evolution is also irrevocably intent upon making omni-integrated humanity omnisuccessful, able to live sustainingly at an unprecedentedly higher standard of living for all Earthians than has ever been experienced by any;

...that humanity now - for the first time in history - has the realistic opportunity to help evolution do what it is inexorably intent on doing - converting all humanity into one harmonious world family and making that family sustainingly, economically successful.

In 1981, Fuller predicted our present crisis. He also predicted its successful outcome. We are now in the crisis he predicted. You will not survive by hanging onto the old. You will survive by letting go. Buy gold, buy silver, have faith. Better times are coming.

Comment: Darryl Schoon is probably right about the safety of gold and silver for the long run.

But the idea that this crisis is leading us to the nirvana of worldwide wholeness is nothing more than a fantasy animated by the archetype of the Self. We in the West only see the bright side of the Self while its dark side is leading us to a well deserved catastrophe; we and our children will not see the end of it.

In 1920's & 30's thousands of Armenian Genocide survivors were forced out from homes in Anatolia

Those who want to shield today's Turkey from responsibility for the Armenian Genocide have sought to blame the Young Turk government of the Ottoman Empire rather than the Republic of Turkey which was not established until 1923, Harut Sassounian, Publisher of The California Courier, writes in his editorial titled "U.S. Document Reveals Turkey Continued Ottoman Empire's Anti-Armenian Policies."

"One wonders then why Turkish officials, who have tried every trick to deny the facts of the Armenian Genocide, have not taken the easy way out by shifting the blame for the Genocide to the long defunct Ottoman Empire. A frequently advanced explanation is that Turks, as a proud people, cannot accept that their ancestors committed the heinous crime of seeking to eliminate an entire nation. Others have argued that should the Republic of Turkey blame the Ottomans for the Armenian Genocide, it could be held legally liable as the successor state to the Ottoman Empire," says the article obtained by PanARMENIAN.Net.

"In recent years, however, it has become clear, particularly through the painstaking research conducted by Turkish scholar Taner Akcam, that a key reason why today's Turkish officials are not prepared to face their history honestly and blame their Ottoman ancestors is that the Republic of Turkey is actually the continuation of the Ottoman state. Indeed, many of the early leaders of the Turkish Republic had been high-ranking Ottoman officials personally involved in the implementation of the Armenian Genocide. Such an unbroken transition in leadership assured the continuity of the Ottomans' anti-Armenian policies.

The Real Mark-to-Market

The Real Mark-to-Market
by Takuan Seiyo

America’s has been an improved blindfold, from the Emperor’s New Clothes closet. Strength in Diversity. Nation of Immigrants. Shining City on the Hill. All Whites are Racists except me because I am saying it. Race is a Social Construct. Gender is a Social Construct. Intelligence is a Social Construct. Islam is a Religion of Peace. Self-Esteem is the Key to Education. No Child Left Behind. No Money Down. Only $399.99 in Five Easy Payments. She’ll love you for it. He who dies with the most toys, wins. Invest for the Long Run. Print More Money for Prosperity. Home of the Brave and the Free, ARM 8.75%.

The people who have staged this farce will not see the truth, except when their stewardship in the political and cultural realm will have brought the country to such a social reality as the laissez-faire credit moonshiners have brought to her in the economic realm. Then they will pour ashes on their heads and sing: By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered America before it was Babylon.

A Dozen More Virulently Anti-American Obama Friends

Doug Edelman
The Obama defenders are complaining that William Ayers’ radical bombings in the late 1960s and early 1970s are dismissible as "old news." They declare Obama's associations to be "irrelevant." (Somehow I'm prompted to wonder what they'd say if McCain were a friend of a 1940s Nazi prison camp guard.) Yet Obama's associations are relevant, as they are in fact current news, and they speak to his judgment, character and to his political proclivities and inclinations. And we can never forget that a man is known by the company he keeps.
Here is a brief accounting of over a dozen of Obama’s long-time colleagues, associates and friends.

An ideological Axis of Evil: Islamism, Leftism, and neo-Nazism

An article by Donald Husting

When Mussolini turned form socialist agitator to fascist leader, writes Alan Cassels in his book, Fascism, he, “[…] did not regard his actions […] as a betrayal of socialism at all. He merely changed brands of socialism”. Later, with only minor adjustments to their personal beliefs, Nazi leaders were able to secure high-up positions in Communist East Germany.

Marxism Descending On America

The Crack Up Boom, Part X

by Ty Andros, Editor, Tedbits Newsletter

As we near the US Presidential and Congressional elections, the unfolding economic calamity is taking its toll on the McCain and Republican tickets. All public serpents have a hand in this debacle, but the Democrats in particular are the party that has PUSHED for the extension of credit to people that have NO ABILITY to repay. The policies of Barack Obama are right out of the CARL MARX handbook: Destruction of the most productive and support of the people on the dole.

Obama was on the front lines of encouraging lending to and borrowing from unqualified people. Now it is BLOWING up as these people are DEFAULTING on their obligations. No money down and liar loans (loans to people who did not have to prove they were qualified) where PUSHED by Obama as a community organizer and senator. We have not yet seen the true bill for Fannie and Freddie making and insuring these types of loans; it will be hundreds of billions, if not a trillion. Yes Obama has ideas, terrible ideas as these events illustrate. He believes in supporting people who CONSUME more then they produce and in taking the money from those that produce more then they consume. These are recipes for BANKRUPTCY -- moral and fiscal!

Trade protectionism, higher taxes, straight jacket regulations of industries about which the public servants KNOW nothing. NO government or public servant can properly allocate capital where it is most productive and creates wealth.

If elected, Obama will spread misery in ever-widening circles as George Bush has done; the misery is courtesy of the printing press, endless government expansion and deficit spending. More for them and less for you, the public and private sectors. Downward mobility for all. One of the reasons the stock markets are screaming lower is to price in the HORRIBLE policies of the SOCIALISTS who call themselves democrats. Because the Democrats already control the legislature, there is no denying that the policies of the last two years are a collaboration of Pinocchio and the Democrats. On both sides of the aisle are closet socialists and wannabe dictators.

Nobel Peace Prize Awarded for Appeasement of Jihad

Granting this year’s Nobel Peace Prize to Finnish diplomat Martti Ahtisaari, known for his role in establishing a Jihadist state in Kosovo, makes the Peace Prize even more of a joke than it already was. Those who want an alternative view on the situation in the Balkans can read the essays of Serge Trifkovic and his book Defeating Jihad: How the War on Terrorism Can Be Won — in Spite of Ourselves.

As Chief United Nations negotiator for Kosovo, Ahtisaari caused anger in Serbia when he stated that “Serbs are guilty as a people,” implying that they would have to pay for it, possibly by losing Kosovo. It is one thing to criticize the Milosevic regime. It is quite another thing to claim that “Serbs are guilty as a people.” If anybody in the Balkans can be called guilty as a people, it is the Turks, not the Serbs. The Turks have left a trail of blood across much of Europe, Asia Minor, and the Mediterranean for centuries, culminating in the Armenian genocide in the 20th century, which Turkey still refuses to acknowledge, let alone apologize for.

Military Aid to Lebanese Army Means Guns and Ammo for Hezbollah

“The unreal equation here is that the U.S. grants $460 million to a Hezbollah-dominated government, thinking this half-billion dollars is going to be part of an effort against terrorism. But Hezbollah which has the upper hand over the political control of the Lebanese Army and has its hands and eyes inside the Lebanese government will be — at the end of the day — the final recipient of American military aid, as strange as it may appear.

“I am surprised that decision makers in the West, including in the U.S. really believe that helicopters, ammunition and Humvees will be used in any fashion against the will and the control of Hezbollah.

“Will the Lebanese Army use these weapons against Sunni Salafi militias in the north? Sure, as scripted by Hezbollah. The shrewd Iranian-controlled organization uses the Lebanese state to get U.S. weapons to be used against some local Sunni bands, while securing the strategic control over the entire country. As the 9/11 Commission puts it, ‘U.S. officials continue to have a failure in imagination.’”

Can America Afford Another Jimmy Carter?

Let us briefly outline the results of Jimmy Carter's misguided liberal policies. The Islamic Revolution in Iran, Soviet invasion of Afghanistan 1979, the takeover of the American embassy in Iran by the fanatic Muslims and holding of hostages, a failed rescue attempt of the hostages, serious fuel shortages in America, a return of the Panama Canal Zone to Panama, double-digit inflation, the birth of Osama bin Laden, the Iran-Iraq War, which cost lives of millions dead and wounded thousands, 9/11 attack, and yes, the present war on terrorism and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Jimmy Carter, the self-appointed touring ambassador of bad-mouthing America, must be rejoicing at the prospect of Mr. Obama’s presidency. Mr. Obama holds the promise of not only carrying on the Carterian misguided policies, but also taking them to their very ruinous end. Most liberal Democrats live in a delusional reality based on denial. As a result by definition, most of the Democrats are in fact "sheeple."

Charles the Hammer saves the West from Islam at Tours

Precisely 100 years of Islamic conquests after Muhammad's death (632), the Muslims, starting from Arabia, found themselves in Gaul, modern day France, confronting a hitherto little known people—the Christian Franks. There, on October 11th, 732, one of the most decisive battles between Christendom and Islam took place, demarcating the extent of the latter’s conquests, and ensuring the survival of the former.

Empire of Yin - Part 2: The Persistent Blindness of Superiority

As a tyke, I sat in Catechism classes wearing the red neckerchief and Karl Marx pin of the socialist Young Pioneers, with Christ crucified on one wall and an Antichrist crucifier, Konstantin Rokossovsky, on the other. Perhaps this is why, fifty years later, I feel that life in the West is a moveable feast on a ship of fools.

A far greater man, Alexandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn, felt so too. On 8 June 1978, Solzhenitsyn stood in front a jubilant class of overfed, overconfident Harvard graduates, and told them that they and their culture were – to put it succinctly – full of shit.

Exchanging the Swastika for the Star and Crescent

by Baron Bodissey

A Nazi revival is a fantasy. Those who believe in it are chasing a phantom.

It’s a Leftist fairy tale spun out of pure gossamer to frighten people away from conservative parties that support the right to a national identity. Those who echo the “Nazi!” alarm are — wittingly or otherwise — aiding the cause of the Eurabian Marxists.

Real Nazis almost invariably end up aligning with radical Islam. Their initial “whites only” stance eventually gives way in the face of their Jew-hatred, the all-consuming preoccupation of both the neo-Nazis and the Muslims. In Muslims they find their natural allies.

Camile Paglia on Palin

"The mountain of rubbish poured out about Palin over the past month would rival Everest. What a disgrace for our jabbering army of liberal journalists and commentators, too many of whom behaved like snippy jackasses. The bourgeois conventionalism and rank snobbery of these alleged humanitarians stank up the place. As for Palin’s brutally edited interviews with Charlie Gibson and that viper, Katie Couric, don’t we all know that the best bits ended up on the cutting-room floor? Something has gone seriously wrong with Democratic ideology, which seems to have become a candied set of holier-than-thou bromides attached like tutti-frutti to a quivering green Jell-O mold of adolescent sentimentality."

Pick your liar: Republican or Democrat

Biden's Secret Diplomacy
By Vladimir Bukovsky and Pavel Stroilov
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, October 09, 2008

Here before us is a Soviet archival document,* a top secret report by a communist apparatchik who had received a delegation of US Senators led by Joseph Biden in 1979. After describing routine arms control discussions, it quotes Biden as telling the Soviets off-record that he did not really care about the persecution of Russian dissidents. He and other Senators might raise human rights issues with their Soviet counterparts, but only to be seen by the public as defenders of human rights, not to have those problems really solved. They would happily take no for an answer.

Vadim V. Zagladin, the then deputy head of the International Department of the CPSU Central Committee (the organization formerly known as the Comintern), wrote in the report:

The delegation did not officially raise the issue of human rights during the negotiations. Biden said they did not want 'to spoil the atmosphere with problems which are bound to cause distrust in our relations.' However, during the breaks between the sessions the senators passed to us several letters concerning these or those 'refuseniks'.

Refuseniks were one of the best known groups of oppressed citizens in the USSR at that time: thousands of Jews who were refused exit permissions to emigrate to Israel on various trumped-up pretexts. [more from the report]:

Unofficially, Biden and [Senator Richard] Lugar said that, in the end of the day, they were not so much concerned with having a problem of this or that citizen solved as with showing to the American public that they do care for 'human rights'. They must prove to their voters that they are 'effective in fulfilling their wishes'. In other words, the collocutors directly admitted that what is happening is a kind of a show, that they absolutely do not care for the fate of most so-called dissidents.

In the same conversation, Biden asked us to ensure that senators' appeals on those issues are not left unanswered - even if we just reply that the letter is received but we cannot do anything.

Europe's Last Stand

By Geert Wilders
FrontPageMagazine.com | Wednesday, October 08, 2008

I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the Old World. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This is not only a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself; it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The danger I see looming is the scenario of America as the last man standing. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe. In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe? Patriots from around Europe risk their lives every day to prevent precisely this scenario form becoming a reality.

The Democrats and Fannie and Freddy

Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

In attempting to capture the significance of Barack Obama's Radical Left connections and his relation to the Cloward Piven strategy, I constructed following flow chart. It is by no means complete. There are simply too many radical individuals and organizations to include them all here. But these are perhaps the most significant.

Cloward Piven Strategy

The chart puts Barack Obama at the epicenter of an incestuous stew of American radical leftism. Not only are his connections significant, they practically define who he is. Taken together, they constitute a who's who of the American radical left, and guiding all is the Cloward-Piven strategy.

Conspicuous in their absence are any connections at all with any other group, moderate, or even mildly leftist. They are all radicals, firmly bedded in the anti-American, communist, socialist, radical leftist mesh.
