HALAL – Islam’s Global Conquest

By: Meg Henry | The United West

Overview

If you think that Halal is just about labeling food for Muslims in the manner of Kosher labeling for Jews, it is time for you to expand your horizons. Halal will be a way to conquer the world according to Bosnian Grand Mufti Mustafa Cleric who was quoted in the Pakistan Daily Mail.

“Conquer the world through the Halal Movement as Halal means pure and hygienic and the non-Muslim world will have no choice but to accept it.”

 “The Halal Certification Movement has the strength to lead Muslims to rule the global economy, as food and other services are the basic need of every human being.”

So, how does the Halal Movement plan to achieve such a lofty goal?  They are doing it in the time-honored way of any crime syndicate, like Mob boss Al Capone with extortion for “protection money” or the “pay-to-play” schemes of Jesse Jackson and his son, Jesse Jr.

Through the Halal certification movement, you must obtain the proper seal of approval before you can sell products that are acceptable to Muslims. There are many certification bodies and some of them are headed by criminals out to make a quick buck without any actual certification protocol.

The Kavanaugh Catastrophe and the Beltway Bandits

By Cliff Kincaid*

Some of President Trump’s biggest supporters on the Religious Right are now facing humiliation over Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s recent ruling in favor of Planned Parenthood. Kavanaugh, Trump’s second nominee to the court, joined with Chief Justice John Roberts and the liberal justices to declare that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, had a constitutional right to taxpayer money.

Rockefeller Republican Senator Susan Collins, who cast a deciding vote in favor of confirming Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, said she was feeling “vindication” after the new justice’s vote in the Planned Parenthood case. “Planned Parenthood was Brett Kavanaugh’s No. 1 opponent,” Collins said on CNN. “They went after him with everything that they had, and yet when it came to this case, he was able to put that aside and rule impartially, independently.” CNN noted, “Kavanaugh’s vote helped prevent the court from taking up the issue, effectively handing Planned Parenthood a win by leaving two lower court opinions in place.”

The conclusion is that, in order to get his lifetime job, Kavanaugh made a devil’s bargain with one of the most prominent congressional supporters of the abortion industry. It’s clear that he promised liberal Never-Trump Republican Senator Susan Collins that he would vote to preserve the pro-abortion ruling Roe v. Wade.

Policing For Profit: How Civil Asset Forfeiture Has Perverted American Law Enforcement

By: Sam Jacobs | Ammo.com

Civil Asset Forfeiture: A Guide to Policing For ProfitPicture this: You’re driving home from the casino and you’ve absolutely cleaned up – to the tune of $50,000. You see a police car pull up behind you, but you can’t figure out why. Not only have you not broken any laws, you’re not even speeding. But the police officer doesn’t appear to be interested in charging you with a crime. Instead, he takes your gambling winnings, warns you not to say anything to anyone unless you want to be charged as a drug kingpin, then drives off into the sunset.

This actually happened to Tan Nguyen, and his story is far from unique. It’s called civil asset forfeiture and it’s a multi-billion dollar piggybank for state, local and federal police departments to fund all sorts of pet projects.

With its origins in the British fight against piracy on the open seas, civil asset forfeiture is nothing new. During Prohibition, police officers often seized goods, cash and equipment from bootleggers in a similar manner to today. However, contemporary civil asset forfeiture begins right where you’d think that it would: The War on Drugs.

In 1986, as First Lady Nancy Reagan encouraged America’s youth to “Just Say No,” the Justice Department started the Asset Forfeiture Fund. This sparked a boom in civil asset forfeiture that’s now become self-reinforcing, as the criminalization of American life and asset forfeiture have continued to feed each other.

A Nation Under Conquest

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

Citizen journalist David Risselada describes how the Marxists use “psychopolitics” to manipulate the minds of millions of Americans, in order to achieve a one-party state. The process involves Marxist education, efforts to portray conservatives as mentally ill, the gradual elimination of God-given rights, and orchestrated “debates” over matters such as the Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmation.

A No-Confidence Vote in Trump

By: Cliff Kincaid

You may remember the days when President Trump was calling for a $25 billion Border Wall to be financed by Mexico. Now he’s shouting at the Democrats to give him a measly $5 billion from the hard-pressed American taxpayers.

Just as Theresa May faced a no-confidence vote for failing to make a proper deal to remove Britain from the European Union, many conservatives here are becoming increasingly skeptical of President Trump’s claim that “people would revolt” if the Democrats impeach him. Some of his legislative maneuvers are leaving supporters scratching their heads in dismay and disgust. It looks like he’s selling out to the Swamp.

Consider that Trump has pressured Senate Leader Mitch McConnell to bring up for a vote a piece of liberal jailbreak legislation known as the First Step Act.  It looks like he’s trying to attract the felon vote that normally goes for the Democrats. CNN’s Marxist commentator Van Jones is behind Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner on this one. In fact, Jones, a former activist with the group, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), looks like the one orchestrating the entire “empty the prisons” effort.

Book Review – Confronting the Deception

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Purchase at Amazon.com

It has been my honor and pleasure to get to know Tabitha Korol. She’s not only a wonderful author and writer but a true patriot and someone who is not afraid to tell it like it is. As America roils with chaos and uncertainty foisted on her from leftists who are intent on removing a duly elected president and forcing the freest nation on earth into bowing before Marxism, Tabitha writes of what we have forgotten. She writes on what happened on 9/11/2001… and on what many of us swore we would never forget.

It has long been my belief that we should have attacked Iran after 9/11 as the major culprit in the attack on our homeland. But in the end, the enemy here is radical Islam and always has been. And the threat has not diminished but grown in the last 17 years. We have let our guard down and we have let the enemy within America. Communists on the left seed our communities with Islamist refugees we know nothing about. It is a recipe for murder, chaos, conquest, and terrorism. Jihadists and their holy war are now here in America and we invited them in even after they slaughtered almost 3,000 Americans on that fateful sunny morning in 2001.

Confronting the Deception by Tabitha Korol, reminds all of us that it wasn’t just Osama bin Laden or al Qaeda that murdered innocent Americans that day. The threat had been growing for decades and Americans were comfy thinking we were immune to it. Not so much. If you read her research, it tells that although Muslims assure us of their peaceful intentions, most of it is Taqiyya (lies) to infidels.

I agree with Tabitha’s conclusion that it is not only a small number of radical Muslims who wish us harm, but it is also the Ummah itself… the Muslim collective. The radical terrorists are just those tasked with the dirty work. Islam believes it should rule the world under shariah law. From the beginning, I have considered it a flawed, fractured religion and not a good one. For that, I have been censored and purged. So has Tabitha. It is an internal and an external threat we dare not ignore but seem bent on doing so. It is an existential threat to Judaeo-Christian civilization.

As Glenn Beck and others have pointed out often, the Caliphate (and there are multiple ones among Muslims) is a danger to all of us. The US stands with Israel because we believe in freedom. Islam does not. It is a theology that thrives on conquest, subjugation, bloodshed, and suppression. Korol’s book points out all of this and more. I believe this is literally a fight to the death for civilizations.

Confronting the Deception puts forth that Islam claims that 9/11 was an act of the Caliphate and “is still being fueled by a Shadow Government.” With CAIR and a ton of organizations now on US soil, that is a foregone conclusion. We have never been given the truth of radical Islam by the media, most of the government and certainly not by the left. In the end, the political theology of Islam in America screams hatred towards infidels and our way of life. “Death to America” is no longer just a saying, but a goal of the Caliphate and we had better come to terms with it before it is too late.

From Amazon.com on Confronting the Deception:

Since 9/11, the United States, Israel, and cultures that still value our freedoms have been fighting a battle of survival on several fronts. The ideology born out of the Islamic attempt to claim Ground Zero as its caliphate is still being fueled by the Shadow Government. The seriously deceptive media hides the truths about Islam’s invasion into other countries and our own, concealing the consequent tectonic changes in the intruded societies, with the result that America’s needs for urgent analysis and discussion are suppressed.

Academia, from kindergarten to university, is disinviting valuable speakers and turning patriots into globalists. Curricula, textbooks, and teaching methods are being changed, inspiration quenched, and competition discouraged by an equalizing grading system, engineering the children’s psyche to produce a compliant, nonproductive generation.

“Confronting the Deception” challenges the insidious propaganda with arguments supported by irrefutable facts. Korol exposes the gravity of the threats we face with copious links to Koranic quotes, historic accounts, and trustworthy documentation not available in any other single source, and reveals the mentality that creates the jihadi terrorist, in order to help the reader to navigate the distortions that are peddled as truths.

Deception is the modus operandi of Islam and the Left. We are being indoctrinated to disrespect and dislike America, to devalue our freedoms, and to cast aside the advancements we’ve made since our founding. The “Eight Years” have brought us an increase in divisiveness, intolerance, street violence, rapes, honor killings, and FGM, combined with a drip-feed of false narratives to direct the thinking of the gullible. This book is an attempt to redress our endangered world by Confronting the Deception.

If you are interested in radical Islam and the threat of terrorism here in America, Confronting the Deception is a must read. I cannot recommend the book highly enough. Tabitha Korol nailed it and she is a tremendous writer and researcher. You can purchase your copy on Amazon.com.

Taxing Texting to Pay Entitlements/Cell Service for Indigents?

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Anyone old enough to remember the sin taxes? Well, seems California has proposed to take it to a whole new level to aid the poor… use cell phones… didn’t the Federal government do that with the Obama-phones?

Anyone remember taxation without representation? Oh, just an archaic notion anymore.

SACRAMENTO, CA (NBC NEWS) — California residents may soon have to pay a tax on texting.

According to KNTV, the public utilities commission is floating the idea to help fund programs that give low-income residents access to cell phones.

It’s not clear how much the texting tax would be or how it would be collected.

Several business groups have come out against the proposal.

One business group says the program is flush with cash.

But state regulators say the program is breaking the bank after the budget for the program has been raised 300 million dollars in six years.

The wireless industry says the texting tax would put them at a disadvantage over other free messaging services like Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Apple’s i-Message and others.

Mobile phone companies along with telecom providers are working to defeat this ridiculous proposal. There is no formal amount of the tax that has been announced, but frankly the poor in California actually need places to live and employment rather than cell phones. There is some chatter that just a flat fee added to the mobile service or a surcharge would be proposed versus some tax per text.

The Bay Area and the California Chamber of Commerce are looking to create a fund estimated to be in the $40-50 million range per year. Oh, wait… there is also some consideration to making these taxes retroactive going back 5 years. If that is the case, that fund would amount to well over $200 million.

A dense California Public Utilities Commission report laying out the case for the texting surcharge says the Public Purpose Program budget has climbed from $670 million in 2011 to $998 million last year. But the telecommunications industry revenues that fund the program have fallen from $16.5 billion in 2011 to $11.3 billion in 2017, it said.

“This is unsustainable over time,” the report says, arguing that adding surcharges on text messaging will increase the revenue base that funds programs that help low-income Californians afford phone service.

Telecom companies are already arguing that texting is an informational service like email and not a service under the authority of the commission’s authority.

Just imagine how much texting goes on through several platforms including iMessages, WhatApps, Skype or by Facebook. It is estimated that in one year alone, 3 trillion text messages are sent.

Often what begins in one state is later adopted in others. So, if you can stand it, it would be prudent to review the whole proposal by clicking here.

One more item going through the FCC:

The Federal Communications Commission says it is giving cellular carriers added authority to block text messages, saying the action is needed to protect consumers from spam or robotexts. But critics of the plan note that carriers are already allowed to block robotexts and worry that the change will make it easy for carriers to censor political texts or block certain kinds of messages in order to extract more revenue from senders.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s announcement acknowledges that carriers are already allowed to block illegal robotexts. Pai did not promise new consumer-friendly blocking services; instead, he said his plan “allow[s] carriers to continue using robotext-blocking and anti-spoofing measures to protect consumers from unwanted text messages” (emphasis ours).

Despite that, Pai is proposing to classify text messaging as an information service, rather than a telecommunications service. That’s the same legal classification that Pai gave to home and mobile broadband services as part of a December 2017 vote to deregulate the industry and eliminate net neutrality rules. The FCC has not previously ruled on whether text messaging is an information service or a telecommunications service.

An FCC vote on Pai’s plan is scheduled for December 12.

Brett Kavanaugh’s Chickens Come Home to Roost

By: Cliff Kincaid

Citizen journalist David Risselada has written a book, Psychopolitics in America: A Nation Under Conquest, in which he explains how so many are being led astray by what passes for the “conservative media.”  Consider the case of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was sold by Fox News and other beltway groups as a conservative pro-lifer. After Kavanaugh’s Monday ruling in favor of Planned Parenthood, many grassroots conservatives are beginning to realize they were misled about his real record. One conservative website called it a “betrayal.”

It wasn’t a surprise to us. My group, America’s Survival, Inc., was virtually alone in exposing Kavanaugh’s real record on abortion and other social issues. We published the 44-page report, “The Deep State Wears Black Robes,” and called his nomination a “Trojan Horse.”  Yet, Fox News and other conservative media, as well as various Washington, D.C.-based conservative groups, had advertised Kavanaugh as a strong conservative. Many of them were invited to the White House to listen to Kavanaugh hail the legacy of “liberty” of the man he would replace, pro-abortion and pro-gay Justice Anthony Kennedy. That turned out to be an indication of Kavanaugh’s liberal direction on the court.

We had conducted a careful study of Kavanaugh’s record, noting that he was a virtual clone of Justice Kennedy. A liberal Catholic, Kavanaugh actually had a record of ruling against evangelical chaplains. But one leading conservative told me I had gone off “the deep end” by opposing Kavanaugh. Fox News refused to cover our detailed critique of his record. It was a very controlled “debate” with “both sides” defined so as to exclude the real truth.

Yellow Vest Protests Getting Worse

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

The protests began in Paris and continue where some real violence is reported. 2,000 people have been arrested from this past weekend and to date, the damage from the protests has reached an estimated $1 billion. Where is Macron? That is a good question.

France 24 is reporting that this movement, which began mobilizing on Facebook against increases in fuel taxes, has spread to Belgium and the Netherlands.

We cannot omit Canada in all of this.

In Calgary, more than 100 protesters, some accompanied by dogs also decked out in yellow vests, chanted: “No Trudeau. No Trudeau,” outside of city hall. Some yelled “String him up,” others yelled “Traitor!”
