7 Questions for Those Who Claim Islam is “Just Another Religion”

Doug Ross @ Journal

In defense of Donald Trump’s suggestion that Muslim immigration be restricted until we better understand the nature of the Jihadist terror threat, the following is offered up by our long-suffering Summer Intern @BiffSpackle:

Democrats, progressives, and other miscreants: please feel free to answer any or all of these questions in the comments section below. I’ll be sure and respond to each, with all due respect, of course.

The Most Frightening Thing About a Hillary Clinton Presidency

Doug Ross @ Journal

Rumors of Hillary Clinton’s poor physical and mental condition have persisted for years.

Last month, State Department emails obtained by Judicial Watch revealed that Clinton’s close personal aide Huma Abedin (who has well-documented ties to the terror group the Muslim Brotherhood) warned colleagues that Clinton’s mental stability appeared to be deteriorating:

Abedin advised Clinton aide and frequent companion Monica Hanley that it was “very important” to go over phone calls with Clinton because the former Secretary of State was “often confused…”

The emails, from Abedin’s “[email protected]” address, also reveal repeated security breaches, with the Secretary’s schedule and movements being sent and received through Abedin’s non-governmental and unsecured Clinton server account…

… The emails document requests for special State Department treatment for a Clinton Foundation associate and Abedin’s mother, a controversial Islamist leader.

This week, on three separate occasions, Clinton seemed to affirm Abedin’s cautions, demonstrating significant confusion that raised the eyebrows of the media:

• “Talking Iran, Hillary gets confused about the nuclear option and military option

• “Hillary Clinton Can’t Remember Her Plan To Deal With the National Debt

• “Hillary Clinton confuses question on ‘hemp’ with one on a ‘hip replacement’

So we have a potential president who appears to have obvious and troubling issues with mental acuity.

Furthermore, her most trusted personal aide and proxy, Huma Abedin, is linked — both directly and through family ties — to the terrorist groupthe Muslim Brotherhood.

The Brotherhood, in addition to being a notorious sponsor of Islamic terror worldwide, traces its lineage directly back to Nazi Germany.

So one does not have to be overly paranoid to imagine that Hillary’s personal version of Valerie Jarrett, i.e., a senior aide reputed to make many of the decisions in the White House, would be a potential Islamist sympathizer and/or conspirator.

Vote accordingly.

THERE IT IS: Democrat Party Organ The New York Times Calls for Forcible Gun Confiscation

Doug Ross @ Journal

The press release outlet best known for its fanatical dedication to the socialist agenda — you may know it as The New York Times — has finally issued the Democrats’ long sought-after call for government confiscation of America’s guns.

It is a moral outrage and a national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed specifically to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.

Of course, the Times fails to note that the recent Paris terror attacks (and many other examples of mass shootings in Europe) occurred under strict gun control regimes. They refuse to describe how disarming law-abiding citizens might prevent killings by Jihadists and the criminally insane (but I repeat myself).

Oh, and box-cutters were used to kill 3,000 Americans on 9/11. A home-made IED killed and crippled more than 100 people at the Boston Marathon. Knives and automobiles are the weapons of choice these days for slaughtering Israeli Jews.

The enemies of mankind will always find ways to kill en masse. Disarming Americans is not only unlawful and functionally impossible, it is a predicate for more terror and tyranny. But The New Democrat Times knows that, of course.

These are weapons of war, barely modified and deliberately marketed as tools of macho vigilantism and even insurrection. America’s elected leaders offer prayers for gun victims and then, callously and without fear of consequence, reject the most basic restrictions on weapons of mass killing.

Guns are tools of a free people, and are used hundreds of thousands of times a year — by the federal government’s own measures — to protect life and property. In fact, statistics indicate that crime would increase if gun ownership were to be further restricted.

As the Left likes to lecture us: the science is settled. Over the past several decades, concealed carry laws have propagated like weeds and invariably violent crime rates decrease as a result.

Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.

There it is: a call for gun confiscation. In the words of one of Obama’s favorite apparatchiks, Rahm Emanuel, never let a crisis go to waste.

Guns in the hands of America’s law-abiding citizens are the problem.

Not failing to name the enemy of Western civilization that has carried out more than 27,000 deadly terror attacks since 9/11.

Not failing to crush the cockroaches that take credit for religiously inspired attacks around the world.

Not refusing to profile and track the organizations than inspire, fund and facilitate an ideology of hatred, terror and world domination.

No, the criminally insane editors of the Times want Americans helpless and more Jihadists imported into the U.S.

I would bet that there was an editorial like this in Germany during the rise of Hitler, Red China during the era of Mao, and Cambodia amidst the ascent of Pol Pot.

The Democrat Party and The New York Times are enemies of freedom and allies of Jihad.

Giving Thanks for the Republican Establishment

Doug Ross @ Journal

Today I give thanks for my family, my friends, my colleagues and our great country, especially those who serve in our military, intelligence, law enforcement and first responder communities to protect us. I give thanks that I was fortunate enough to be born in this wonderful nation, the most magnificent society on the face of the Earth.

Today I also give thanks to the Republican Party, its leaders, and its media. I give thanks to the party’s agenda — in the wake of the Mississippi Senate primary and numerous derogatory remarks — as it made clear it sought to wage war against us. It is a fact that the Republican establishment seeks to expel conservatives from the party.

Did you drop your Republican registration to express your disgust? Awesome — you did exactly what the establishment wanted, so you couldn’t vote for an insurgent candidate like Donald Trump in your state primary.

Are you a ‘Cruz Birther’? Super, you’re burning calories on an issue that no legal expert — on the left or the right — believes has any validity.

Do you think a President Rubio would lift a finger to seal the border? Pretty cool; but may I suggest that you lay off the psychedelic mushrooms?

Do you believe a President Fiorina, Christie, Kasich or Paul would be any different than Jeb!when it comes to illegal immigration or reducing the size of government? Excellent: I have some land in Whitewater, Arkansas I’d like to sell you — it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

My friends, there are only three candidates left in the race who operate outside of the GOP establishment: they are Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Donald Trump.

It’s important to understand one, simple fact: should one of these three outsiders become President, they will also become the de facto head of the Republican Party.

That’s right: in one fell swoop, an anti-establishment candidate could take over and control the GOP leadership structure, by dint of the bully pulpit and a massive fundraising capability.

As the leader of the party, an outsider President could eviscerate the leadership structure and reorganize the entire, defective mess that is the GOP establishment.

That is what they fear most — losing their cushy jobs and consultancies and actually having to work for a living. Oh, the humanity!

That’s why I’m staying a registered Republican and supporting Cruz, Trump or Carson — who ever I deem most likely to win at the time.

It’s not just to save the Republic from the fiscal and national security timebombs that Obama has bequeathed to us. It’s also to shred the entire GOP establishment and lay the foundation for a new Republican Party. A conservative Republican Party that can restore the rule of law, honor the Constitution, and begin flaying the lard off the federal leviathan.

I give thanks to the Republican establishment for declaring war on us. It makes our mission all the more clear; they must be removed from the halls of power.

President Carson, President Cruz, or President Trump could make that appealing vision a reality.

Make sure your Republican registration is up-to-date, so you can support an insurgent candidate. It’s the only way to stop these corrupt and feckless boobs who today falsely claim the mantle of “Republicans”.

All the best to you and yours on this wonderful holiday. Thank you for patronizing my humble journal and may this season be a blessed one for all of us.
