…Including pregnant women.

Zee Media Bureau

Baghdad: As the world along with Pakistan mourns the death of children killed in the dastardly carried out terrorist attack in an army-run school in Peshawar by Taliban, reports of more violence from another brutal terror group have emerged.

Islamic State militants have reportedly beheaded at least 150 women, some of them pregnant, for refusing to marry them.

Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights, in a statement released, said that the women in the western Iraqi province of Al-Anbar were attacked by the Islamic State terrorists and were later buried in mass graves in Fallujah.

“At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage,” the statement said.

Last month, at least 50 men, women and children were executed by the IS members in a tribe massacre in the village of Ras al-Maa.

According to reports, the militants lined them up and shot them dead in public.

ISIS had also recently published a pamphlet guiding its members on how to capture, keep and sexually abuse female slaves.

Vandals struck Australia’s largest cemetery on Tuesday, damaging 76 headstones and graves in the Russian Orthodox and Serbian Orthodox sections of Rookwood Cemetery in Sydney.

RT has the story:

At least 76 graves, mostly Russian and Serbian, have been damaged by vandals in a Sydney cemetery. The incident, already condemned by Moscow, happened a day before Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s official visit to Australia.

Headstones knocked down, crosses turned over – that’s how the Russian and Serbian sections of the Rookwood Cemetery, the biggest in Australia, looked after an attack that reportedly took place before dawn on Wednesday.

Some of the damaged graves were also discovered in two non-denominational sections of the cemetery, which led to police being skeptical of whether the attack had been provoked by racial or religious hatred.

However, the timing of the assault – a day before the Ukrainian president’s arrival for a two-day visit to Australia – has given rise to suspicions that the desecrators particularly targeted Russian graves.

The Russian Orthodox cemetery spokesperson, Aleksey Ivachyoff, said no politics could excuse what was done to the graves.

Some people that I’ve seen coming here, once the news came across, they were crying,” he told RT. “They said, ‘Nothing like this has ever happened before.’

There is absolutely… no excuse,” he added. “Whatever political differences people have, they shouldn’t take it [out] on the cemetery. They shouldn’t take it [out] on the graves. They should let people there rest in peace.

The Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organizations labeled the attack a hate crime, calling for an investigation “at the highest levels,” the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry in a statement on Friday also condemned “the blasphemous desecration of our compatriots’ graves, which cannot be justified.”

On Thursday, Cossacks living in Australia – descendants of those who emigrated from Russia a century ago – announced they will reward anyone with information about the vandals with 5,000 Australian dollars, TASS reports. The Cossacks, who were the first to report the assault, have said they are currently helping police patrol the damaged cemetery to prevent new attacks.

Daily Telegraph (AU): Russian Orthodox Community devastated by desecration of Rookwood graves

THE Russian Orthodox community is devastated by the senseless destruction of more than 70 graves at Rookwood Cemetery overnight.

Church spokesman Alexi Ivacheff said he believed the vandalism, which occurred the day before Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko arrived in Australia, was targeted at the Russian Orthodox community.

“Words can’t describe how we’re feeling but we hope to hear more news from the police,” he said.

Police are investigating the desecration of 76 gravestones in the Russian, Serbian, Ukrainian and non-denominational sections of the cemetery.

It is believed the offenders broke into the cemetery on Hawthorne Ave and pushed over or smashed 76 gravestones between 9pm on Tuesday and 6am yesterday.

Mr Ivacheff said the gravestones of prominent Russian people were destroyed in the attack.

“The cross on the top of a priest’s grave has been snapped off,” he said.

“And the grave of a man who was a chef for the Russian Imperial Court, who was buried here in the 1950s, his grave was also damaged.”

Detective Inspector Paul Arnold has labelled the vandalism a senseless and mindless act and said someone in the community would know who was behind the attack.

“No doubt people would be skylarking about it on social media, so if you see anything please report it to police,” Insp Arnold said.

“We have reviewed CCTV footage from the cemetery but it’s not assisting us at this time.”

The graves of Stojan Radic’s godmother and family friends in the Serbian Orthodox section were among those damaged in the attack.

“Whoever did this, how dare they desecrate the graves of our loved ones,” Mr Radic said.

“It’s hard to describe how angry I’m feeling, and it’s worse because I’m going to have to make some upsetting phone calls back home to Serbia. They’ll probably have a heart attack.”

Insp Arnold refused to speculate on whether the vandalism was targeted at Russians.

“There is nothing to suggest this was linked to other events… We don’t want to speculate. There are no suspects at this time.”

However Insp Arnold said that the fact 76 headstones were damaged suggested more than one offender.

Mr Poroshenko arrived this morning and will join Prime Minister Tony Abbott at a Melbourne prayer vigil for victims of the downed flight MH17.

Police are asking for anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity in the area or has information on the crime to come forward and call CrimeStoppers on +61 1800 333 000.

Despite the Taliban regime’s ouster in Afghanistan more than a decade ago, oppressive tribal traditions remain more powerful than law, leaving thousands of young Afghan women imprisoned or killed for ‘moral crimes’.

When Soheila was 5 years old, she was given away in marriage to an old man as compensation for her older brother’s crime: stealing the man’s third wife. After years of abuse in the marriage, “I ran away with the man I love. When my father found me, he put me in prison. My son was born here in prison”, explains Soheila. In 2009 President Karzai passed a law criminalising 23 acts of abuse towards women – including forced marriage. But it has rarely been enforced. “Unfortunately in Afghanistan, as a result of 30 years of war, cultural practices have more power than the law”, says Soheila’s warden. “We are not afraid of killing her”, insists her brother. Soheila’s lover is serving a voluntary six-year sentence; a desperate bid to make peace with her father. “If there were justice they would arrest her father, the man who gave his daughter away in an exchange! There is no law – in the Koran or anywhere else – that says he can do that.”

Texas City is a busy deep water Gulf Coast seaport. While we may never know how the truck got to Syria, it is possible that the vehicle was stolen from a used car lot or other subsequent owner and then sent to the Middle East in a shipping container.

Older vehicles are likelier to be stolen because they lack anti-theft electronic keying systems. It’s wise to install anti-theft mechanisms on any work truck that carries advertising decals and insignia, and to remove or paint over these insignia before disposing of the vehicle.

BizPac Review: Shocked Texas plumber’s former work truck shows up in jihad terror mission photo; his phone blows up

Former Mark-1 plumbing truck

(h/t: Grumpy Elder)

It doesn’t always pay to advertise.

That’s what a Texas plumber is learning after getting barraged with threats from people who’ve seen a Ford truck he used to own show up in a picture posted on Twitter by an Islamist militant group — fighting in Syria!

Mark Oberholtzer, the longtime owner/operator of Mark-1 Plumbing in Texas City, told the Galveston Daily News he doesn’t have a clue how his old truck ended up in Syria. But he wishes it hadn’t – particularly with the distinctive “Mark-1 Plumbing” decal on the driver’s side a door and an anti-aircraft gun blazing away in the bed.

He said he sold the truck three years ago, and expected the decals would have been removed by the dealer.

AutoNation told KHOU-TV that the truck would have likely been sold at auction and would have changed owners multiple times before ending up in Syria.

“How it ended up in Syria, I’ll never know,” he told the Daily News.

The phone calls started Monday, he said. By the next day, more than a 1,000 calls and faxes had come in, he said – some of them threatening.

“A few of the people are really ugly,” Oberholtzer said.

Oberholtzer’s son, Jeff, was amazed by the turn of events.

“To think something we would use to pull trailers, now is being used for terror, it’s crazy,” he told KHOU. “Never in my lifetime would think something like that.”

Seriously, who would?

Aussie Infidel says:

Apparently the Lindt chocolate and coffee company refused point blank to cower and pay an Islamic tax to make their products ‘halal compliant’. In other words they refused to be extorted by a bunch of terrorists. Apparently the two multinationals Nestlé and Cadbury chocolate manufacturers have paid the extortion tax to the Islamists. I’d suggest that you all cease buying these cowards chocolates forthwith.

Sydney’s Channel 7, the Australian equivalent of MSNBC a bunch of of socialist enablers are already suggesting that the terrorists are lone wolf and do not represent Islam. The excuse mongers and Muslim facilitators are at it already.



Jihad Watch: Sydney jihadist, one other person dead as police storm cafe to end jihad hostage crisis

“A Muslim community leader in Sydney, Dr. Jamal Rifi, said in a televised interview that ‘everything he stands for is wrong.’ ‘It has nothing to do with Islam as a religion whatsoever, and we have all seen that by his previous action and his current actions.’” His previous actions include involvement in an honor killing, the sexual assault of a young woman, and taunting and threatening the families of slain Australian soldiers. All these we have seen among Muslims many times in the past, and all have justification in Islamic texts and teachings — as does hostage-taking. What exactly makes them un-Islamic?

“Police Storm Cafe to End Sydney Hostage Siege,” by Michelle Innis, New York Times, December 15, 2014:

SYDNEY, Australia — Heavily armed police officers ended a hostage siege in Sydney early Tuesday, storming a downtown cafe where an armed man said to be a self-proclaimed sheikh had held employees and customers for more than 16 hours.

Live television images of the scene showed intense flashes of gunfire and the explosive sound of loud ammunition rounds. Police officers raced into the building with weapons drawn, followed by medics with stretchers.

The number of casualties was not immediately clear, but Sky News Australia reported that two people were dead, including the gunman.

“Sydney siege is over. More details to follow,” the New South Wales Police said in a Twitter message at about 2:45 a.m.

Just before the police entered the building, at least six hostages had been seen running from the cafe.

Earlier, the police said that the hostage-taker was Man Haron Monis, an Iranian-born man in his 50s with a criminal record who called himself Sheikh Haron. Australian media reports quoted the man’s former lawyer as saying he was acting alone. But it was unclear whether the gunman had accomplices.

The siege had transfixed Australia since Monday morning, when the gunman took control of the cafe in central Sydney with an unknown number of employees and customers trapped inside. The man was carrying a black flag with white Arabic script similar to those used by Islamic militants on other continents, and the flag was later displayed in the window of the cafe.

Five people, including two cafe employees, had fled by 7 p.m. Monday, but it was not clear whether the assailant had allowed them to leave or they had escaped.

Helicopters hovered over the city, the train network was temporarily stopped and strategic buildings — including the nearby Sydney Opera House, the New South Wales Parliament, the state library, law courts and the Reserve Bank — were evacuated or shut down. Traffic was stopped on part of the Sydney Harbor Bridge.

According to The Age, a national newspaper, Mr. Monis was free on bail in two separate criminal cases. He was charged in November 2013 with being an accessory before and after the fact in the murder of his ex-wife, Noleen Hayson Pal, who was stabbed and set on fire in an apartment in Werrington.

In April 2014, Mr. Monis was charged with the indecent and sexual assault of a woman in western Sydney in 2002.

The police have said that Mr. Monis held himself out as a spiritual healer and conducted business on Station Street at Wentworthville.

Mr. Monis also pleaded guilty in 2013 to 12 charges related to the sending of poison-pen letters to the families of Australian servicemen who were killed overseas, local press reports said.

Samantha Power
Samantha Power

Years ago when I was a graduate student at Harvard, I remember an encounter with a red headed “activist” who had organized a talk featuring Christian Science Monitor journalist David Rohde on the Srebrenica tragedy [1-3] at the Harvard Law School around the fall/winter of 1995 if memory serves me correctly when the Bosnian civil war was in full swing.

This presentation was very typical of most “scholarly”/one-sided/biased presentations of the Yugoslav civil wars in Boston-area universities and other campuses throughout the United States during the 1990s in that we were only presented with one side of the story – the anti-Serb one.  Despite the illusion of respectability and “objectivity” (after all, this particular presentation was at the Harvard Law School), it was immediately apparent to me that the forum did not tell the entire tragedy of Srebrenica.  David Rohde did not discuss the slaughters of hundreds if not thousands of Bosnian Serb villagers by Nasir Oric and his band of Mujahadeen savages holed up in Srebrenica who beheaded, roasted, shot, raped, tortured, and committed many unspeakable but largely unreported and ignored atrocities against innocent Serbian civilians.

These mass slaughters became so frequent and regular that Gen. Mladic (the Bosnian Serb commander) decided to overrun the so-called “safe haven” of Srebrenica (for better or for worse) to remove the festering boil of Islamic terrorists there.  After over 40 minutes of innuendos and highly questionable “testimony” of what Mr. Rhode had observed after Srebrenica, I sought to challenge his viewpoints by asking some questions logically challenging the statements made (e.g. how did he extrapolate that tens of thousands of Bosnian Muslim men, teenage boys, and imported Mujahadeen who did not surrender were “executed” based upon observing a few residual objects [cane, documents, bone sticking out from the ground, clothing])?

Though I do not condone what transpired in Srebrenica on any side, it appeared obvious to me that Mr. Rohde was wildly inflating his claims regardless of the fact that all women and young children were allowed to safely leave the war torn area.  Based on what he said, I guess that we should consider what “General” Wesley Kanne Clark did in Waco Texas to slaughter some 74 Branch Davidian men, women and children in Waco Texas as “genocide“.  After all, they could be considered a unique ethnic group who were just wiped out by the US army.

I had only a few minutes to make my points which the hostess “activist” begrudgingly allowed me to do.  Though Mr. Rohde did not properly answer my questions, the “activist” moderator angrily tried to challenge my viewpoint, but she wasn’t a very good debater and chose to focus on “brow beating” me into submission by resorting to emotional and irrational arguments which just didn’t hold water.

I thought to myself, “how did this Birkenstock wearing/pseudo-Bohemian-looking/”liberal”/backpack-toting and immature non-Harvard ‘activist’ manage to organize an entire anti-Serb forum with a “journalist” who won the now-discredited Pulitzer prize for his efforts to expose the ‘truth’ about Srebrenica at the Harvard Law School?”  It all seemed awfully suspicious to me – artificial – like a highly organized setup to spread disinformation.  After all, many of us in the Boston area tried very hard to present an alternative viewpoint about the Yugoslav civil wars from what the US State Department wanted us to hear but were unable to – we were just plain censored.

Some months later, I bumped into this red headed “activist” at the Casablanca restaurant in Harvard Square.  She, surprisingly, recognized me from our earlier exchange and walked over to greet me as if she wanted something from me.  I don’t know what it was as the conversation was extremely strained – pleasant – but strained – and brief.  We then parted ways.  Later this “activist” wrote a book on genocide allegedly committed by the Serbs entitled: The Problem from Hell: America and the age of genocide, which agitated for “international” “humanitarian intervention” to resolve the internal conflicts of sovereign nations, regardless of reverence to international law.  This book, unsurprisingly, won a Pulitzer prize for its cheap and journalistic “scholarship.”

Of course, beyond the highly inflated and yet-to-be-proven numbers (even decades later) of “executed” Bosnian Muslims (many of which were actually killed in battle as they sought to escape into the surrounding countryside of Srebrenica), she never mentioned the genocide of Serbian Orthodox Christians committed throughout the former Yugoslavia both in this war, WWII and WWI (three times during the 20th century.

Thus, as is so symptomatic of Western fairy tales told about Yugoslavia, we only heard less than ½ of the tragic story.  That’s not scholarship – that’s propaganda pure and simple.  This strange woman was none other than Samantha Power who became very useful as a Serb-hater and “new” world order (NWO) apologist.  So much so that she somehow became (embarrassingly for Harvard) affiliated with Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and later on was appointed as the UN ambassador trying to “educate” the Russians about their own history with the classic arrogance of an obedient necon and at the same time “liberal” servant/puppet for the NWO.

I don’t normally like to focus on only one NWO propagandist (there are so many to choose from and they are so homogenous in regurgitating the same tired agitprop anti-Serbian racism and ignorant drivel, article after article, book after book, interview after interview), but this woman profited more than most from her pseudo-intellectual diatribe against the Serbs and it’s important for Americans and other to understand the nature many of those who rise to the top in our society to become our self-styled “leaders” and who are not intellectuals, but propagandists/apologists instead.  They are not capable of finding the solutions to the world’s many complex problems outside of brute jungle-style force because they are not free thinkers.

They are incapable of understanding alternative perspectives, and are fanatically obedient foot soldiers, who, like puppets, are being manipulated and told what to do:  Foment hatred against Orthodox Christian Russia and prepare the world for WWIII just as they did to establish the pretext for NATO’s illegal and vicious attack on the Serbian people in 1999.

We now fast forward to the recent vote at the UN condemning the glorification of Nazism and find that only three countries vote against the resolution:  the Ukraine, Canada, unbelievably, the United States of America, land of the “free and the brave.” That all three nations (the Ukraine was then part of the Soviet Union) so valiantly contributed to defeating Nazism a mere 70 years ago had no bearing on swaying the resolution’s detractors in their fanatical obsession to alienate Russia.  That anyone (including Samantha Power) could vote against the condemnation of Nazism is sadly symptomatic of a horrible sickness that is consuming and destroying America and everything that this great nation once stood for.  No people or movement was ever more efficient in all of human history at murdering millions of innocent souls than the Nazis and their fanatical henchmen such as the Croatian Ustashe, the Bosnian Muslim Handzars.

As a “scholar” who is so concerned about genocide to the point that she justifies “humanitarian” genocidal intervention to counter it in the philosophy that two wrongs somehow make a right, to vote against this UN resolution is tantamount to supporting genocide (just as convicted Canadian felon Conrad Black recently wrote in support of the slaughter of Soviet citizens – particularly if they are Orthodox Christians) and that makes her a hypocrite for all the world to see.  By not supporting this resolution, Samantha Power tried to tell us the black is white and white is black and, thus (shamefully), that Nazism is OK.   This is absolutely unacceptable.

I know that my fellow Americans know history far better than the young Ms. Power and perhaps that may be the reason why not one “American” corporate-controlled mainstream media outlet reported on this shameful and embarrassing (for America, Canada and the illegal Western-backed fascist government of the Ukraine) story.  It speaks volumes about the goose stepping march toward fascism occurring within our society and the monopolistic and Goebbelesque media control via censorship that we are being brainwashed by [6].  I am honestly terrified by the astonishingly high level of corruption of our government and media as we run up to WWIII.  One way or another, this will not end well.

It’s all about the abuse of the English language.

Angry smiley with two thumbs down
Thumbs down on being ‘down with…’

Americans have all heard the ghetto-poseur catch phrase to be down with [whatever or whomever]’ meaning empathy and political support for someone or something perceived as the underdog.

‘Down with’ is a leftist dog-whistle if there ever was one. Leftist agitators are always talking about whether someone is ‘down with the struggle’ or ‘down with the homies.’ As we have seen with Barack and Michelle Obama, leftists care only about their own access to wealth and power, and care nothing for the minorities and the poor who serve only as expendable pawns in their game. To fool those who consider themselves to be downtrodden into identifying with their would-be masters, these leftists use propaganda, spin, and photo ops to accrue ‘street cred.’

Language matters.

We must stop our leftist enemies from framing and defining the terms of public debate.

How things have changed! Many decades ago, when I was growing up, Down with [whatever or whomever]! meant the exact opposite – defeat, oblivion, perhaps even eternal damnation upon the target of that demand.

More ominously, to be ‘down with’ a person, group, or cause implies sinking to the lowest common denominator, rather than leading everyone upward.

Says Iron Fist at Blogmocracy:

Yeah, Americans take for granted things that most of the world simply doesn’t have. that is one of the things that is so frustrating about watching the Left try to destroy us. We have produced a society that has produced the most prosperity for the most people. Take the “Income Inequality” bullshit. It really doesn’t  matter to me that the CEO of my company makes 100 times what I do, or whatever. What matters is that I have a good job paying good wages. Sure, I’d like to see my income increased closer to his level, sure, but that doesn’t mean I have to bring him down to do it. That is where the Left goes at things backwards. I think they do this by intent. They know that the rising tide lifts all boats, but they don’t want the boats of the masses raised. They want the boats of the Middle Class brought down to the level of the poor. That way we’re all equal.

RT has the story:

During the night, a ginger cat sneaked into a sea food store at Vladivostok airport and treated itself to fish from the deli counter. The animal’s feast, which included squid and flatfish, was worth 60,000 rubles – some $1,100.

The feline burglar also went for the dried octopus – he torn up the packaging, but couldn’t quite get to the food inside. The shop owners still had to count the costs because the sealing on the packages was broken.

“The cat made its way inside the counter, and ate and nibbled the goods, scratched and wrecked the packaging around the squid and dried fish,” a shop assistant told Ria Novosti agency.

The shop was forced to write off the entire fish counter the cat had laid its paws on, to comply with sanitary rules. The store at Vladivostok international airport in Russia’s Far East was thoroughly disinfected, its owners promised the local PrimaMedia news.

The cat’s Friday feast was spotted and filmed by airport staff, who were amused by the gluttonous animal for some time before calling the shop owners. It’s still unknown how the animal sneaked his way into fishy heaven.

While shop assistants say the animal is homeless and lives near the airport, sometimes coming into the terminal for warmth and to be fed, the airport says the presence of any unsupervised animals on the premises is strictly forbidden due to security regulations.

A special order has been issued, and a company has been appointed to keep stray animals out, the airport’s press service said, adding that the cat might have been lost by one of the passengers. The blame lies completely with the shop, the airport said.

Cornwall Terrace, Regent's ParkCornwall Terrace, Regent’s Park: the Qataris are converting three of the Grade I listed homes into a mega-palace. Photograph: Laurie Liaromatis

Guardian (UK) has the story:

Qatar’s royals are adding a massive £200m-plus Regent’s Park palace to their multiple investments in the capital. So apart from Harrods, what else have they acquired in their ongoing spending spree?

It will by all accounts be one hell of a gaff: a Grade I listed, 13-bedroom, 30,000 sq ft, twin-lift mansion on Regent’s Park, complete with spa, heated swimming pool, gymnasium, beauty salon, powder rooms, a children’s floor, games rooms, wine cellar, fumoir and staff wing. When the conversion of numbers 1, 2 and 3 Cornwall Terrace – acquired last year for £120m by Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned, one of the three wives of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the former emir of Qatar – is complete, the resulting palace is expected to be London’s first £200m-plus pad.

But that sum pales into insignificance besides the value of the Qatari royal family’s other holdings in London. In a spending spree that started in 2008, the ruling Al Thani family and its assorted investment vehicles, including the Qatar Investment Fund, have acquired a 20% slice of Camden market; posh department store Harrods; 95% of the Shard, at 87 storeys the EU’s tallest building; the Olympic village; half of the world’s most expensive apartment block at One Hyde Park; the Chelsea Barracks site, and the US embassy building in Grosvenor Square.

Along the way, Qatar has also acquired just over a quarter of Sainsbury’s, some 8% of the London Stock Exchange, and nearly 7% of Barclays. As the former Qatari prime minister, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani (not to be confused with the current eighth emir, 34-year-old Sherborne, Harrow and Sandhurst-educated Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, whose London home the neoclassical Cornwall Terrace mansion will be) observed to the Financial Times in a rare 2010 interview, “We are investing everywhere. Even your Harrod’s – we took it.”

Michael Coren and Athar Khan fail to acknowledge that the problem is deeply rooted Islamic doctrine itself. Islamic jurisprudence (shari’a law) has been frozen for many centuries, and therefore it cannot evolve into a more civilized treatment of women.

The Islamic State (ISIS) has released a chilling list of dos and don’ts instructing its followers on how to treat the thousands of Yazidi sex slaves held in the terror group’s prison-brothels.

The list tries to answer all doubts that a possible ‘master’ may have on how to treat his slave. According to the document, slave women are known as al-Sabi by ISIS militants, and can only be taken from ‘ahl al-harb’ – any group of people with which the terror groups considers itself at war.

In the list of the 27 questions recorded by the group, ISIS has given answers to questions such as; ‘Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive immediately after taking possession?’, and ‘If the female captive was impregnated by her owner, can he then sell her?’.

The rape of a female captive, the document explains, is perfectly acceptable even for married men. It then uses a passage from the Koran, which says Allah rewards “Muslims who are chaste with everybody other their wives and those their right hands possess”.

Everyone knows it is true, and no one has the courage to say it. The American people are letting Barack Obama destroy this country through illegal executive orders for one reason and one reason only. In his latest FIREWALL, Bill Whittle has the courage to speak out and make the case that no one else will make.

TruthRevolt has the transcript:

Everyone knows it is true, and no one has the courage to say it. The American people are letting Barack Obama destroy this country through illegal executive orders for one reason and one reason only. In his latest FIREWALL, Bill Whittle has the courage to speak out and make the case that no one else will make.


Well, Barack Obama has proclaimed amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Conservative pundits have called this act illegal, saying the President does not have the power to unilaterally circumvent Congress on any issue, let alone one of this magnitude. Senators and Representatives have called his act illegal. Saturday Night Live called it illegal, Jon Stewart on The Daily Show called it Illegal, and President Obama himself, on two dozen occasions, said he did not have the Constitutional authority to do this and was therefore illegal.

He didn’t care. He did it anyway.

Many of us knew before his election what he really thought of the American people, but for those who didn’t we have Jonathan Gruber, one of the Chief Architects of Obamacare, saying repeatedly on camera that they had intentionally mislabeled what was obviously a bill-killing tax on the American people. He then told his elitist, left-wing audience that the entire sham depended on the stupidity of the American voter. Furthermore, Gruber has stated, on camera, that the President was not only well aware, from the beginning, that they were lying to the American people – Obama actually led the discussion of how this could be done.

We will set aside, for a moment, the fact that Obamacare passed without a single Republican vote – so when Gruber and Obama say they are depending on the stupidity of the American voter, they are really saying they are depending on the stupidity of the half of the country that votes Democrat. The bottom line is that there can no longer be any question of the contempt in which this President holds the American people. Do we suddenly think that now, after dictating amnesty into law, this man is suddenly going to constrain himself out of respect for the American people and the Constitution?

Please. A few days before his election he said we were on the verge of fundamentally transforming the United States of America. He has fundamentally transformed it. When a man can dictate law…that’s a dictatorship. It’s pretty simple really. Any questions?

Both Gruber and Obama are wrong about the American people. We’re not stupid.

We’re scared. In fact, we’re not just scared – we’re scared senseless. We see the American nightmare of not just single-party rule but actual illegal dictatorship unfolding before our eyes, and we are as paralyzed as cavemen frozen in fear, eyes closed, as the leopard growls quietly, inside the fire and the sentry.

Many Americans think Obama is the problem. Obama is not the problem. Our Constitution was written for one purpose and one purpose only: to prevent the rise of a dictatorship. So what failed? How did we build this tyranny?

When the Progressive Left began their takeover of academia in the 1960’s, they began inculcating their radical worldview all across the spectrum – and we let them get away with it. Three generations later, journalism students are no longer encouraged to seek out the truth, whatever the cost – they are taught which stories to promote, and which to suppress, in order to advance the Larger Truth of left-wing utopian philosophy.

When a President that they despise – such as Richard Nixon – acted illegally they hounded him out of office. With a President they adore – like Barack Obama – they see to it that stories such as Gruber and his multiple on-camera admissions of deception never see the light of day.

Why? We know why. Everybody knows why.

We are allowing Barack Obama to get away with this because he is black. That’s it, and that’s all. To say if he were white he would have been impeached already is a non-sequitor; if he were white a man of his inexperience and radical background would never have been elected in the first place. America voted for him to prove they were not racist, and now we will let him destroy this government for the same reason.

It’s guilt that paralyzes us – this Progressive Obama dictatorship is built on guilt over the original sin of slavery.

It’s guilt – and also fear. That’s why Obama and Eric Holder have been encouraging the Ferguson protestors to stay the course. “We don’t give a fuck about your laws,” said one of them, and the President and the disgraceful Attorney General obviously don’t either. They need Ferguson to remind the American people of what will happen should they decide to hold the first black President accountable to the same rules as the previous forty-four.

Everyone knows it is true, and no one has the courage to say it.

As for me… I know what people have said, and will say about me, and I’d love to tell you that I don’t care but I do care. Charges of racism only work against people who are not racist. Real racists revel in the name.


So I am going to stand with this man. I believe that Barack Obama and his multiple, flagrant and impeachable illegal actions should be judged not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.


For those who are not familiar with this part of the world, BiH (Bosnia and Hercegovina) is the Muslim/Croat entity within the failed state that is now Bosnia. Sarajevo is its capital. This incident shows that Orthodox Christian Serbs who still live there do not have the same rights as Muslims and Croats.

Shari’a law does not permit the display of crosses.

Memorial cross in Sarajevo

The cross at Zlatiste, set in memory of 6,500 Serbs killed in Sarajevo, was knocked down on Friday morning. Mirza Hatic from Sarajevo assumed responsibility for knocking down the monumental cross at Zlatiste, eastern Sarajevo area.

“I said that I would knock it down” stated Hatic to Dnevni Avaz daily. He cited that the Republika Srpska police department guarded the cross sometimes and not others.

“We waited for them to leave and my friend and I came, and knocked it down. It was a little past midnight. I am proud of what I have done and I will do it again, wherever they set it” cited Hatic, claiming that the monumental cross was set as a provocation.

Hatic (27), who is already known to police, claimed that he was at the head of young men who tried to knock down the monumental cross at Zlatiste, above Sarajevo in September. On that occasion, he stated that he will “die, but that cross will not be there”.

A police officer on duty at the Pale police department received a call from a member of the Support Unit for Eastern New Sarajevo, who patrol the cement monumental cross at Zlatiste, municipality of Stari Grad, that an unidentified person knocked down the monument, reported RTRS (Radio Television of Republika Srpska). Danka Tesic, spokesperson for the Sarajevo Centre for Public Safety, said in a statement to Dnevni Avaz, that police has been sent to the scene.

“This doesn’t qualify as a criminal act. The situation, as you know, is particular, since the cross was erected without a permit, therefore there is no injured party here. What is important is that the cross didn’t fall onto the road and did not endanger traffic. The police will, as usual, carry out an investigation and we will wait for the Prosecutors’ position on this, stated Tesic.

At Zlatise, above Sarajevo, the monumental cross was erected in September, as a temporary placeholder for a token honouring the memory of Sarajevo’s Serb victims, which several people attempted to knock down on more than one occasion.

Representatives from the municipality of Eastern Stari Grad, the territory on which the cross was erected, as well as representatives from Serbian veterans’ associations, claimed that this was a shameful pre-election act by the Association of Inmates, given that the cross was made out of one steel bar and a horizontal wooden bar, hence a permit for its construction had not been issued by the Serbian Orthodox Church.

Municipality Chief Bojo Gasanovic said earlier that the Municipality Assembly of Eastern Stari Grad gave members of the Association of Inmates of Republika Srpska a deadline for removing the cross so that they could apply for a permit for its eventual setting.

The Association of Inmates of Republika Srpska assessed this decision by the Municipality as a kind of cowardice and protection of other, primarily private interests, which should not, and cannot be above piety and memory of Serbian victims.

The Association of Inmates of Republika Srpska announced that they are not surprised by such decisions, made by structures that opposed the idea and initiative to erect a monumental structure in memory of innocent Serb victims in Sarajevo, from the very beginning.

The erection of the Zlatiste monumental cross evoked turbulent reactions both in Sarajevo, as well as Eastern Sarajevo. Certain associations in Sarajevo assessed the erection of the cross as a sort of provocation, citing that this location was used by Serbs during the shelling of Sarajevo.

The leader of the eurosceptic right-wing Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) has said that immigrants who do not want to integrate should be expelled. Heinz-Christian Strache also repeated his call for separate school classes for foreign children to learn the German language, and for a limit to be set on the number of foreigners in a class.

He said it was necessary to have preparation classes to learn the German language otherwise it would not be possible to follow regular lessons. There were no problems to overcome language barriers for people from the same cultural area, whereas problems still remain with immigrants from Turkey, Strache said according to a report in The Local.

Strache’s Austrian Freedom Party made a strong showing in the elections for the European Parliament in May, winning 20 per cent of the vote and taking four of Austria’s 18 seats. The conservative Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP), which is in coalition government with the left-wing Social Democratic Party of Austria (SPÖ), came first with 27 per cent of the vote and five seats.

However, according to an Associated Press report just before the European Parliament elections, opinion polls showed that if the national elections were held at that time, “the Freedom Party would actually win them, a stunning upset of the two establishment parties that have traditionally governed Austria.”

The popularity of the Freedom Party comes despite Austria’s low unemployment (4.9 per cent) and prosperity: “Ironically, that is part of the problem,” according to the AP report. “Many view their country as an island of prosperity threatened by hostile outsiders — Muslim refugees, cheap foreign labour, or Brussels-based ‘Eurocrats’ looking to strip them from their national identity, while misappropriating their hard-earned money to bail out other EU countries.”

At a rally before the election, Strache, who is known to his supporters as H-C, called for “an end to further immigration into our labour market,” and claimed that some school classes have such a high share of Muslims that “you need a magnifying glass to find the Austrian children.”

Faced with European Union attempts to “homogenize” Europe, he said his party is alone in “fighting to keep our sovereignty, our culture and our identity,” according to the AP report. Asked what makes his party so popular, he replied: “Our honesty, our down-to-earthness, our heart and our character.”
