Actually, these comrades in Soviet army hats are not really members of the People’s Cube, nor have they ever been. Instead, this is the most acute case of “life imitating the People’s Cube” we’ve seen so far, especially that it happened almost simultaneously with our very own scheduled Show Trial and Raffle.
A few days ago, on January 5th, in St. Louis, Mo, a group of comrades wearing Russian fur hats with Red Army insignia (complete with red stars and hammer’n’sickles) held a People’s Grand Jury, with live broadcast, in which they unanimously denounced the State Prosecutor for being the imperialist running pig-dog, and, after one hour of selective and one-sided debate found the kriminal kop Darren Wilson guilty on all trumped-up charges.
Many of you may not know this, but Conservative Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-District 4) and I go way back to the early ’90s when we ran together in Vegas. Blondie has been my bestie forever. I will never forget her coming to my side in the middle of the night in 1999 when my father passed. She sat with me in the hospital and kept me from coming totally unglued. I owe Michele more than I can ever repay her in so many ways. Plus, she’s a firebrand and a hell raiser. We had a blast. So, I was thrilled when she stood up at the Bundy Ranch. But she’s not done… oh, no… she’s kicking ass and taking names. Good times. She’s slapping Leftist Progressive Republicans up alongside the head in Nevada and I am simply basking in her glow. Feels sooooo good I cannot stand it! My feel good moment of the year. You guys messed with the wrong filly this time and she will stomp you into the ground with a smile and 4-inch stilettos. Enjoy!
From Chuck Muth (another friend and rabble rouser):
FIORE AND THE MEDIA
Conservative Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-District 4) is brash. She’s outspoken. She’s plainspoken. Sometimes profane. She has no filter. She tells it like it is. She calls a spade a spade. And she is unapologetic about her conservatism.
What a breath of fresh air!
Sometimes the media finds her; sometimes she finds the media.
But for far too long, far too many conservative Republicans in Nevada have treated the media as if they have Ebola. They don’t talk to the press. They don’t return reporters’ phone calls. They don’t appear on radio or TV talk shows.
“No comment” is usually their only comment.
As such, the public in general, and conservatives in particular, often have no idea what’s going on in Carson City. And frankly, that’s the way most state legislators like it.
They prefer to do the public’s business behind closed doors under the Legislature’s roof. The last thing they want is to have their business conducted in the light of day, fully transparent.
They also don’t like legislators who give it to us straight without a chaser. They prefer media statements such as, “We have every intention of doing what’s in the best interest of Nevadans, especially the children.”
Blech. Mouths of mush.
Then along comes Fiore.
When the media turned the heat up on Assemblyman Ira Hansen shortly after he was elected Speaker-designate last month over columns he’d written which were portrayed as racist and homophobic…Hansen quit.
When the heat got turned up on Fiore over a series of IRS tax liens related to a massive embezzlement scheme at her business, Fiore didn’t quit.
Instead she faced her accusers head on. She went on a talk radio program and took every question from the host, as well as several questions from hostile callers for a full hour.
Alas, in the same interview she also lifted up a rock and “outed” two anti-conservative GOP political consultants – by name – as well as a tax-hiking GOP donor.
Subsequent to the furor over those accusations – and losing her leadership positions within the Republican Assembly Caucus (RAC) because of them – it was confirmed that, well, everything she said was…true.
Sure, it was embarrassing for Speaker-designee John Hambrick – since it was his own political consultant/personal valet, Nathan Emens, who got caught with his sticky fingers in both the Republican AND Democrat cookie jars in the last election, as well as threatening to sue every member of the RAC – but all of us are better off having had this dirty laundry exposed and aired in public.
And after realizing that her initial radio appearance to explain the IRS tax liens still left some questions open – hey, nobody’s perfect – she took her accountant and went back in the lion’s den AGAIN on Friday!
And in the second interview, Fiore cleared up any and all remaining questions for all but her most strident opponents – which her accountant verified, on air.
Fiore even shut up Nevada’s #2 liberal blogger-without-a-TV-show, Jon Ralston, who during the program twit-tweeted…
“So @VoteFiore is claiming she will have liens paid off in next few years. We are still waiting for letter from IRS proving she has a deal.”
Right after twit-tweeting that, and after the commercial break, show host Alan Stock came back on the air and asked Fiore if she had any proof that she had a written agreement with the IRS to repay the money that had been embezzled from her company.
And Fiore was loaded for bear!
She handed Stock the signed document and Stock verified – on the air to thousands upon thousands of listeners – that yes, Fiore does, in fact, have a signed repayment agreement with the IRS.
In addition, she has been paying back MORE each month than she is required to pay by the agreement.
Ralston spent the rest of interview wiping the egg off his self-righteous face!
Look, dealing with the media is hazardous. More so if you’re a conservative. More so if you’re an outspoken, unapologetic conservative. And even more so if you’re a conservative leader.
Mistakes will be made. Things will be said that can and will be taken out of context. Indeed, sometimes something will be said that probably shouldn’t have been said even IN context.
But the answer isn’t to go hide in a closet, crouched down in the dark, shivering in fear because a reporter shows up at your door wanting to ask a question.
When it comes to dealing with the media, as Fiore herself might say, it’s time for Republican legislators to grow a pair. The media has a legitimate job to do, and they are, like it or not, an integral part of our governing system.
The Fourth Estate.
I know it bugs the heck out of some of her colleagues that Fiore garners so much press attention. For some, they just can’t stand the transparency of having a spotlight shined on their activities. For others, it’s jealousy.
But for conservatives, it’s refreshing to finally have a non-apologetic spokesman who is unafraid to engage the media and occasionally mix it up with them.

Inventing Freedom: How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Modern World by Daniel Hannan is a magnificent journey through history and politics. Thought-provoking and emotionally gripping, this book is a must read for those who cherish liberty and the law. It is a triumphant testament to English history and one of my all-time favorite books. Hannan’s masterpiece is also bawdily politically incorrect in its attitude – I simply love it!
From the Back Cover:
Why does the world speak English? Why does every country at least pretend to aspire to representative government, personal freedom, and an independent judiciary?
In The New Road to Serfdom, British politician Daniel Hannan exhorted Americans not to abandon the principles that have made our country great. Inventing Freedom is a much more ambitious account of the historical origin and spread of those principles, and their role in creating a sphere of economic and political liberty that is as crucial as it is imperiled.
According to Hannan, the ideas and institutions we consider essential to maintaining and preserving our freedoms—individual rights, private property, the rule of law, and the institutions of representative government—are not broadly “Western” in the usual sense of the term. Rather they are the legacy of a very specific tradition, one that was born in England and that we Americans, along with other former British colonies, inherited.
The first English kingdoms, as they emerged from the Dark Ages, already had unique characteristics that would develop into what we now call constitutional government. By the tenth century, a thousand years before most modern countries, England was a nation-state whose people were already starting to define themselves with reference to inherited common-law rights.
The story of liberty is the story of how that model triumphed. How, repressed after the Norman Conquest, it reasserted itself; how it developed during the civil wars of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries into the modern liberal-democratic tradition; how it was enshrined in a series of landmark victories—the Magna Carta, the English Civil War, the Glorious Revolution, the U.S. Constitution—and how it came to defeat every international rival.
Yet there was nothing inevitable about it. Anglosphere values could easily have been snuffed out in the 1940s. And they would not be ascendant today if the Cold War had ended differently.
Today we see those ideas abandoned and scorned in the places where they once went unchallenged. The current U.S. president, in particular, seems determined to deride and traduce the Anglosphere values that the Founders took for granted. Inventing Freedom explains why the extraordinary idea that the state was the servant, not the ruler, of the individual evolved uniquely in the English-speaking world. It is a chronicle of the success of Anglosphere exceptionalism. And it is offered at a time that may turn out to be the end of the age of political freedom.
There is no one like Daniel Hannan. A speaker that commands attention and stands above everyone else, his writing is excellent and his prose gives history life. Inventing Freedom is one of those rare books that teaches and entertains. The principles and ideals of freedom are universal and are what have made America the great nation she is. America inherited individual rights, private property, the rule of law and the institutions of representative government from England. But we took it further and in a more independent direction I contend. Hannan chronicles Anglosphere exceptionalism and how, if America is not careful, we could lose it and our freedoms as we have always known them.
FrontPage Magazine does a tremendous review of the book – here’s a slice:
The fundamental incoherence of multiculturalism comes from its cultural relativism that posits no one way of life is better than another, but then singles out the West as a uniquely oppressive global villain. Even more contradictory, at the same time that multiculturalists slander the West for its alleged crimes, they praise and promote political and social ideals––democracy, freedom, equality, and law-based justice–– that flourish only in the West. This cognitive dissonance is made possible by massive historical ignorance of just where such ideas originated and developed. The great value of Daniel Hannan’s Inventing Freedom lies in its recovery of that history, and the role that the “Anglosphere,” the English-speaking countries, played in recognizing and nurturing those ideals for over 1500 years.
Hannan is a writer, blogger, and currently the Conservative representative of Southeast England in the European Parliament, where he vigorously monitors and battles the dirigiste excesses and autocratic impulses of the European Union functionaries. He is also a stalwart friend of the U.S., a throwback to the days when the “special relationship” between Britain and the U.S. was instrumental in turning back the fascist, Nazi, and communist assault on everything that comprises the liberal democratic ideals universally admired and imitated, even by those illiberal regimes who must pay lip-service to democracy and freedom even as they work to subvert them. Readers will find in Inventing Freedom an immensely readable, clearly argued survey of those ideals, the history in which they struggled to survive, and the great heroes whose sacrifice and commitment to them ensured that we enjoy them today.
This book is a slap upside the head of Leftists. As Benjamin Weingartin at The Blaze says, it “argues for the superiority of the Anglosphere in terms of the culture, values and institutions that it has bequeathed us…if we can only keep them.” Benjamin and I think a great deal alike and we love and respect Hannan’s work. You really need to read this book. It is a keeper.
If you are a patriot and a fighter… if you are proud of your American heritage and English history… this book is for you. Right here, today, we fight the fight that Ronald Reagan spoke of. It is a fight for freedom we dare not lose.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” – Ronald Reagan in his Time for Choosing speech (October 27, 1964)
Hannan covers the gambit of history from the 10th century through today. It is a sweeping historical and political discussion that engages and inflames a patriot’s desire. Daniel Hannan makes the steadfast argument that the separation of powers, with sovereignty of the legislative branch representing the people, over and above the executive, and protections for the smallest minority, the individual, are in fact the fundamental building blocks on which an Anglosphere government was built. It remains to be seen if Americans still have the intestinal fortitude to embrace the principles of which Hannan extols upon, or whether they will submit to Progressivism ushering in a new Dark Age. This book should be part of our fight to reimplement our founding principles. Get your copy of Inventing Freedom: How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Modern World today. It’ll become one of your favorites as well.
While much of the media are doing contortions trying to explain why the latest terrorist attacks are either home grown, lone wolf, or committed by alienated youth, this misses the point. And yes, we realize that most victims of Islamic jihadists are other Muslims. Just look at the massacre in Pakistan last month of 141 individuals, including children and teachers. Or the one this week by Boko Haram in Nigeria that may have led to the death of at least 2,000.
The Islamic terrorists who attacked the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris this week, brutally murdering 12 people, were killed by authorities today. The situation is still fluid, but reports indicate that at least 15 hostages are now free, and one more terrorist may be on the loose following two hostage situations that ensued during the hunt for the terrorists. One might think that Paris—and France—might be able to breathe a sigh of relief. In reality, however, the attack on Charlie Hebdo and the two ensuing hostage situations were merely a continuation of the latest line of Islam-inspired terror attacks worldwide, be it on the Canadian Parliament; in Sydney, Australia; in Pakistan; on two policemen in New York City; or in Moore, Oklahoma.
The problem is not who these attackers are, or whether they are a card-carrying member of al Qaeda, Boko Haram, or the Islamic State—but that they are conducting such atrocious acts. Just in the U.S. and Canada alone in the last couple of months we’ve had a number of attacks occurring in the name of Allah. To the victims, and most of the rest of us, the rest doesn’t matter.
The Washington Post is reporting that Boko Haram may have executed thousands. “A video recently emerged, Genocide Watch reported, that shows gunmen shooting civilians as they lay face down in a dormitory,” reports Terrence McCoy. “A local leader explains they are ‘infidels,’ even though he admits they’re Muslim: ‘We have made sure the floor of this hall is turned red with blood, and this is how it is going to be in all future attacks and arrests of infidels. From now on, killing, slaughtering, destruction and bombings will be our religious duty anywhere we invade.’”
McCoy notes that Boko Haram’s attacks seem more “wanton” than those perpetrated by other terror groups.
These attacks are coming at such an accelerated pace today that any sort of long term solutions, such as being more responsible and not insulting Islam or the prophet Muhammad, seem futile. Do we really think anyone at the school in Pakistan or in Baga, Nigeria had slandered the prophet?
“The Religion of Peace” website has documented the Islam-motivated terrorist attacks of 2014.
The next day, The New York Times reported that one of two attackers “suspected of killing 12 people at a satirical newspaper in Paris traveled to Yemen in 2011 and received terrorist training from Al Qaeda’s affiliate there before returning to France.”
However the media decide to parse the latest Paris attacks, these Islamic jihadis clearly have been drinking from the same toxic stream of violent ideology.
As happened with the Moore, Oklahoma beheading by Alton Nolen, the media and liberal pundits were quick to separate the Charlie Hebdo killers from Islamic ideology—going to great lengths to find a parallel with any other case they could fathom.
One guest on MSNBC’s “Now with Alex Wagner” compared Jerry Falwell’s lawsuit against Hustler Magazine to the violent murder of 12 innocent people at Charlie Hebdo, without any rebuttal coming from Wagner. Jonah Goldberg of National Review condemned this as “The Dumbest 57 Seconds Ever on TV.”
I would also point to MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry’s characterization of Nolen’s beheading of a co-worker in Oklahoma as supposedly having as little to do with his alleged “workplace violence” as what he ate for breakfast. The FBI, apparently, swallowed the idea that Nolen’s attack was workplace violence, as well.
And recently, after the Charlie Hebdo attacks, Howard Dean went on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to condemn the attacks, but asserted, “I stopped calling these people Muslim terrorists. They’re about as Muslim as I am. I mean, they have no respect for anybody else’s life. That’s not what the Koran says. Europe has an enormous radical problem. I think ISIS is a cult. Not an Islamic cult. I think it’s a cult.”
“When I watch Americans use words like cowardly, barbaric, murder, outrageous, shocking, etc., to describe a violent extremist organization’s actions, we are playing right into the enemy’s hands,” said Maj. Gen. Michael K. Nagata, U.S. commander of American Special Operations forces in the Middle East, in December regarding ISIS, according to The New York Times. “They want us to become emotional. They revel in being called murderers when the words are coming from an apostate.”
The Daily Caller cited an example of The New York Times removing a section from a previously posted article that told how one of the terrorists at the Charlie Hebdo offices spared the life of a woman who was there during the attack:
“Instead, she told French news media, the man said, ‘I’m not going to kill you because you’re a woman, we don’t kill women, but you must convert to Islam, read the Quran and cover yourself,’ she recalled.”
Later on the Times altered the article, removing “but you must convert to Islam, read the Quran and cover yourself.” This is the type of political correctness that is commonplace in the media. It is not a matter of cowardice, fearful of being attacked like Charle Hebdo was, but rather an ideological, editorial decision to attempt to minimize the link to Islam.
As I asked in my recent column on the underreported and misreported stories of 2014, “What does it take to spark media outrage?… What is it going to take to end this ongoing slaughter by jihadists, acting in the name of Islam?”
In 2011, when Charlie Hebdo was firebombed for “an edition poking fun at Islam,” according to the UK Telegraph, Time Magazine’s Bruce Crumley blamed the publication for the violence perpetrated against it, writing,
“Not only are such Islamophobic antics [as publishing cartoons] futile and childish… but they also openly beg for the very violent responses from extremists their authors claim to proudly defy in the name of common good. What common good is served by creating more division and anger, and by tempting belligerent reaction?”
By such a measure the media should censor itself from publishing or disseminating the inflammatory Charlie Hebdo materials in any outlet at all. And if The Washington Post is any indication, that’s exactly what happened: it used a photograph that cleverly hides the Charlie Hebdo cover from view while featuring a copy of the publication amidst other magazines.
Ironically, a call to combat terrorism came, not from the media, but from Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al Sisi even before the attack in Paris. He made a speech that hopefully will prove to be a turning point, but don’t count on it. In his New Year’s Day address, he urged the Imams to lead a “religious revolution” against extremism. But he has a huge battle on his own turf, as he gained power after millions of Egyptians called for the removal of Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood leader who had been elected president of Egypt after the removal of Hosni Mubarak. This is but a small step forward.
As President Al Sisi said, “I say and repeat again that we are in need of a religious revolution. You, imams, are responsible before Allah. The entire world, I say it again, the entire world is waiting for your next move… because this umma is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost—and it is being lost by our own hands.”
Why must such bold words come from Egypt’s president, and not our own, and other Western leaders, or from the mainstream media? Steve Emerson, of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, and a member of the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi, argued that “Indeed, the responses from our own president, French President Hollande and British Prime Minster David Cameron all spouted the same empty pabulum in asserting that the Paris attack had nothing to do with Islam or any religion for that matter. But the hollow comments coming from our own leaders are steeped in the stench of appeasement and cowardice.”

Common Core and Bringing Islam Into Our Public Schools
Segment One : BEST WAY is to LISTEN to the AUDIO, IMPORTANT TO HEAR-Audio Download from Fortress of Faith LINK, Please Listen Now
There is an agenda withing Common Core to bring Islam into our schools. What better way to change the culture than to indoctrinate our children and young people. We have seen this done in Islamic countries where they have used the Madrases (Islamic Schools) to change their societies.
One of the problems with having a national Department of Education is the ease with which the things can be introduced into our schools. It used to be that to do this you had to go state by state and district by district. With the Department of Education there is one place to go to do the job.
We know that Saudi Arabia has put a lot of money into this indoctrination. They own textbook companies and are involved with student associations, etc.
Common Core is the tool being used to indoctrinate our young people. It used to be that each state and each district had control over what was taught. With Common Core the federal government is attempting to put one standard for all schools controlled by the government. If the states don’t implement Common Core they are threatened with the loss of federal funding.
Our government is supposed to be a bottom up system where the people control the government. It is now where if you can infiltrate the top, the White House, the State Department, the Department of Education, etc., you can control the whole country. This is what is being done with Common Core.
When it comes to Christianity there is a big stink if you just mention it or anything about it in our schools. It is not the same with Islam. It is being brought into our schools through things like Common Core, as we will see in a moment, and there is very little, if any squawk from groups like the ACLU.
Here is what our First Amendment says:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
This has been interpreted, incorrectly I might add, to mean that no public money or any other support can go to the promotion, or even the mention, of religion in any organization that has anything do do with the government. With what we will see, it seems like by religion they only mean Christianity. It seems like they can spend what ever money they want to promote Islam.
The original intent of the First Amendment was not to separate church and state, it was to protect the church from the state. Sadly lawyers are trained to redefine words to make them say what they want them to say. As a result the Amendment has been changed to protect the state from the influence of the church.
They gave now kicked prayer, the Bible, creationism, and anything to do with Christianity out of our schools. As if this was not enough, they have tried to change our history to say that Christianity had on influence on the founding of our nation. It is not hard to see the result of this in the degradation of our nation.
Let’s look at how they are allowing Islam to enter the curriculum. What follows comes from one of the textbooks used in Common Core. The information I will share comes from a book which is available HERE. It is a textbook by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston for high school seniors. It is a vocabulary workshop for English, lesson 16.
This was brought to light by the parents of a student who goes to Central High School in Farmville, NC. Fortunately these parents were paying attention to what their son was being taught.
This is a lesson on building vocabulary. The context deals with the Islamic civilization from 600 to 1300 AD. It gives the story of Muhammad and the rise of Islam. They are indoctrinating our teenagers concerning Islam. My question is can the schools produce any material that does the same thing about Christianity and Jesus Christ? Why is it that Islam finds its way into our textbooks in America and Christianity does not get the same treatment? I don’t understand this.
In the Middle East, in the seventh century a.d., the Arabs developed a dynamic culture that overshadowed that of Europe until the twelfth century. At the center of Arabic culture was the religion of Islam. The founder of this religion was Muhammad 570-632), a spiritual, military, and political leader. He began uniting his followers, known as Muslims, under one faith. Muhammad’s successors expanded Islam across North Africa to Europe in the west and to Asia in the east.
There are some real problems with this. The first is the lie that Arabic culture overshadowed Europe until the 12th century, The truth is that very few of the people in the Arabic culture could read or write, Muhammad included. There were no books written in Arabic until the writing of the Qur’an. How can it be suggested that the Middle Eastern culture, and especially the Arabic culture was greater that that of Europe.
Secondly it talks about the religion of Muhammad being central to this culture. This is a true statement, but it means that to teach Arabic culture you will have to teach Islam.
It is good that they actually say the Muhammad was more than just a religious leader. The fact is that Muhammad was building an empire. He brought the Arab people together under one leader and his successors spread Islam across North Africa and into southern Europe. They did this using the sword to conquer nations and to force people to convert to Islam or die. This last part is conveniently left out.
The lesson paints Muhammad with a colorful brush but conveniently leave out important points. They don’t mention jihad, they don’t mention his sex with children, and other atrocities committed by Muhammad and his followers.
We have see the same bias in textbooks before Common Core. They get away with doing this because they present it under they guise of culture rather than religion.
They leave out important facts and misrepresent things. As early as the 8th century Muslims were spilling the blood of millions of Europeans. Had it not been for the battle of Poitiers in 732 they would have continued the conquest of Europe by the sword. Where is this part of history in their presentation of Islam? Islam advanced its cause in a bloody rampage across the Middle East, Asia, North Africa, and into Europe. The bias toward Islam is obvious by their ignoring some of the most important facts about the expansion of Islam.
The lesson then gives a list of words to expand their vocabulary. They use the words in sentences to help the students to understand them. Let’s look at the example of the word “astute.”
It is entirely possible that Muhammad was and astute, or shrewd, merchant, but at about the age of forty, he gave up his career as a merchant and became a religious hermit.
Through the example sentences like this one they start to introduce Islam to the students. While it is true that Muhammad spent 30 days in a cave, he did not become a hermit. Muhammad or Islam is used in everyone of the example sentences.
This is supposed to be an English vocabulary class. Why is it being used to introduce Islam to the students?
Where is the ACLU? If they had a chapter on the life of Christ, the tenants of Christianity, or the culture of Christianity they would be all over it in an instant.
Why are they using an English vocabulary to teach the religious aspects of Islam? It is to indoctrinate our young people and try to erase the negative truths concerning Islam’s past. They want them to believe that what we are seeing today is not true Islam. If they were to tell the truth about Islamic history we would see that what we are seeing is true Islam because they are just following the example of their Prophet.
In one case in Washington State a student had been studying Islam for five weeks in his social studies class. The parent went to the school and asked to see the curriculum for the class and wanted to know why there were spending so much time studying Islam. The school district refused to let the parent see the textbook until they were threatened by a law suit.
In this chapter, there were approximately three pages dedicated to Christianity (most of which painted Christianity in a bad light and presented the Crusades as an act of Christian aggression) and barely any focus towards Judaism.
Meanwhile, Islam was painted as the defender against the aggression of the Crusaders. The entire “unit” spent seven chapters on Islam- more chapters than dedicated to any other religion by far. You read correctly, seven chapters on Islam!
The fact that they are using English classes to introduce Islam into our schools is bad enough. The inaccuracy of what they are teaching makes it much worse. They conveniently leave out all of the negative and twist the truth. Not only to they twist the truth about Islam to make it look better, they twist the truth about Christianity to make it look worse.
I want to look at some of the things this lesson does. To make it easier to understand I suggest you open the file on your computer so you can see what I am talking about.
On the forth page of the file, numbered page 64, you will find exercise 2. This is a matching column A with column B exercise. In column B item (B) it says:
This fairly peaceful period was conducive to advances in commerce and agriculture and was also favorable to advances in education and medicine.
How could anyone looking at the period of time from 600 to 1300 say that the expansion of Islam was peaceful? Islam was spread by the sword, not by peaceful expansion.
It is equally inaccurate in section (F) on the same page.
Astute Muslims helped preserve the writings of the ancient Greeks. Modern scholars are grateful for the Muslims’ keen judgment.
According to this false statement Europe would probably still be in the Dark Ages were it not for the keen judgment of astute Muslims. The truth is exactly the opposite. When Muslims take over a people they destroy their artifacts and their writings. Nothing has changed over the centuries as can be seen by what is happening as the jihadists of both ISIS and the Taliban take over territory. These groups are following the example of early Islam under Muhammad and the caliphs.
This is nothing but propaganda woven into Common Core and the parents have no idea what is happening. Our young people are being indoctrinated with false Islamic history and few are even noticing what is going on.
As for preserving the writings of the Greeks, the Qur’an does speak of the great founder of the Greek culture, Alexander the Great. Here is what the Qur’an says about him.
He is the one that discovered where the sun sets. It sets in a pool of murky or muddy water.
Does this sound like Islam is preserving knowledge and advancing civilization?
Let’s talk about the advancement of medicine under Islamic rule. Muhammad taught his followers to drink the urine of camels for their health. The Saudi government is manufacturing pills made from the urine of camels based on this teaching. The believe that it even has the ability to cure cancer.
It gets into the schools through the pretense of teaching culture. They take the children on school field trips to mosques and the children are invited to participate in the prayer time after hearing a lecture from the imam about the religion of Islam. They don’t study the architecture of the mosque or other cultural things. They are invited to partake in the religious practices.
One such field trip was video taped and you can see it here.
The girls and women were asked to leave the prayer room and the boys were allowed to stay They were invited to participate in the prayer time and even one Jewish boy was seen participating.
Shahram spoke to parents of students in in Washington State who said they had the same thing happen in their schools. One of the students, at the request of her parents, asked the teacher when they were going to go to a church on a field trip. The teacher answered, “that is religious, this is cultural.”
Back to the subject of this Common Core workbook. This is supposed to be about vocabulary, not culture. This distorted history is coming in through the back door. Is it any wonder that young people think Israel bad guy and Hamas is good? They teach nothing about the 600-900 Jewish men beheaded under the direct supervision of Muhammad. They teach nothing of the killing of upwards of 40,000 apostates by the first caliph (first successor to Muhammad). The teach nothing about Muhammad being a pedophile. Nothing negative is ever said about Islam and almost everything said about Christianity is portrayed in a negative light.
I spent a large part of my life in Great Britain and in the county next to where I lived a letter was sent out in November of 2013. It informed the parents that the school was taking their children on a field trip to a mosque. It included the following warning:
Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a racial discrimination note being attached to your child’s education records, which will remain on this file throughout their school years.
It went on to say that if a child was sick there had to be a note from a doctor so stating our the note would still be attached. This shows the type on pressure that is put on parents to submit their children to what I would call child abuse.
Many schools in Europe have been intimidated into serving only Muslim approved food. The next step will be to segregate the boys from the girls. Where will it all end?

Islam Not Only in Curriculum But Force On Children in Other Ways
Segment Three Direct Audio Download from Fortress of Faith LINK, please listen
Islam is not only coming into our schools through the curriculum, it is being forced upon our children through other ways. The schools are starting to celebrate Muslim holidays and Muslim children are given preferential treatment.
Mayor De Blasio of New York has been in the headlines a lot lately because of the assassination of two police officers. We must point out that this was done by a Muslim convert. The police have been turning their backs to him because of comments he made about racism in the police force.
When De Blasio was a candidate he said that he believed that schools should be closed on Muslim holidays, especially Eid al-Fitr, the feast at the end of Ramadhan, Eid al-Adha which celebrates the Hadj. He wants Muslim children to be exempt from school, tests, etc. for these holidays.
Every effort is being made to make our schools Sharia compliant. This is not just in New York. It is being advocated across the spectrum of Common Core.
An example of the double standard for Muslims is seen in the law in Washington State which makes being absent for more than two weeks, including holidays, is considered being truant. This does not apply to Muslims who go on the Hadj.
Why is it that so many non-Muslims are so willing to bend over backward to accommodate Muslims? The reason is that we are afraid. We are afraid of the violence, the push-back, the labels and so forth.
We need some people who will stand up for our freedoms and our way or life. There was a Marine who stood against making his daughter being taught these things. As a result he has been banned from the school.
Marine John Kevin Wood, and his wife, Melissa, are suing La Plata High School in Maryland over the Islamic indoctrination of their 11th-grade daughter in her World History class. Their daughter was required to complete assignments where she had to affirm that “There is no god but Allah” and the other Five Pillars of Islam.
The reason this is so important is that according to Islam when you say “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger” you have converted to Islam.
This marine fought on the battlefield to protect us from this. Thank God he has the courage to fight for our freedoms here in our court system also. This is the only way we are going to be able to fight this enemy in their cultural jihad.
If you are a parent with children in school, go to the school board and demand to see the textbooks, demand to see the curriculum. Don’t take this lying down. You will have to do this every year if you want to stop this onslaught of Islam in our schools. If we don’t have the courage to stand up and oppose what they are doing our way of life and our freedoms will be lost.
As Christians we need to be involved in the civic process. We need to get Christians on the school boards. We need to vote in all elections as Christians and we need to know where the candidates stand on all issues. We need to vote righteousness rather than personal gain. If we put righteous people in political offices God will take care of the personal gain.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
We need to bring control of the education system back to the local level where we as parents can control it. If we don’t stop this now they are going to Islamasize our schools, which is what they are trying to do.
Our children are our most precious assets. We need to protect them from the indoctrination in our schools. They are attacking our children before they have the discernment to see what is being done to them. They are propaganda experts and they know what they are doing.
“When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic” – Benjamin Franklin
For those paying attention, President Obama’s plan to “invest” $60 billion taxpayer dollars into community colleges, along with an additional 25 percent funded by “participating states,” is a clear political ploy to gain the allegiance of the low info crowd.
Under the hashtag, #FreeCommunityCollege the White House tweeted:
Federal funding will cover three-quarters of the average cost of community college. Participating states will be expected to contribute the remaining funds necessary to eliminate the tuition for eligible students.
While it should be common knowledge that a president has absolutely no power to make such decisions, as Congress has the “power of the purse;” this unconstitutional breach is barely noticed by those who applaud the idea of free stuff.
But as it turns out, Congress has allowed this breach by giving up it’s own power. Consider a quote from a little-seen video posted by Regulations.gov:
Most people think of laws as being created by Congress or maybe through interpretations of the Constitution by the U.S. Supreme Court; but actually by volume and significance, regulations adopted by administrative agencies dwarf the decisions passed by Congress.
While speaking of the size of government, James Madison wrote in Federalist 48,
It will not be denied that power is of an encroaching nature and that it ought to be effectually restrained from passing the limits assigned to it
President Obama does not need to worry about backlash from the mainstream media, academia or the GOP establishment, unfortunately. In fact, the watchdog institutions praise these taxpayer funded “investments.” That leaves those who care about the future of America to educate others.
“It is the responsibility of the patriot to protect his country from its government.” – Thomas Paine
“It does not take a majority to prevail…but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” – Samuel Adams
What would the founding fathers say about such taxpayer-funded “investments?”
“Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.” – Thomas Jefferson
“A wise and frugal government, shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” – Thomas Jefferson
“If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the general welfare, the government is no longer a limited one possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one subject to particular exceptions.” – James Madison
“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.”- Thomas Jefferson
“The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” – James Madison
“Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people. When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers, and destroyers press upon them so fast, that there is no resisting afterwards. The nature of the encroachment upon the American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer, it eats faster and faster every hour. The revenue creates pensioners, and the pensioners urge for more revenue. The people grow less steady, spirited, and virtuous, the seekers more numerous and more corrupt, and every day increases the circles of their dependents and expectants, until virtue, integrity, public spirit, simplicity, and frugality, become the objects of ridicule and scorn, and vanity, luxury, foppery, selfishness, meanness, and downright venality swallow up the whole society.” – John Adams
“I am a mortal enemy to arbitrary government and unlimited power. I am naturally very jealous for the rights and liberties of my country, and the least encroachment of those invaluable privileges is apt to make my blood boil.” – Benjamin Franklin
“I consider the foundation of the [Federal] Constitution as laid on this ground: That “all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people.” [10th Amendment] To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers of Congress is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.” – Thomas Jefferson
“A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.” – John Adams

“To win the next elections, to make it worth something, we need to unify the conservative base. You’ve got Libertarians over there, you’ve got social conservatives, fiscal conservatives, defense conservatives, 2nd Amendment fighters – they’re all fractured. You’ve got 2 million GOP’ers who stayed home last time. You’ve got several million evangelical Christians who don’t vote.
To get those people motivated, they all need something. To unify them, they need to be given something. If I was a man like Ted Cruz – I see him as the front runner and the most Reaganesque of the figures that are out there right now, I’d be wanting to unify that base right now, before Jeb Bush gets up a head of steam. So I’d go to them right now and say, ‘I’m running and the very first thing I’m going to do is put Allen West on my VP ticket, early, right now.”
So if Ted Cruz runs early, naming his Cabinet and running as a team, will you be inspired? Will you do everything in your power to help?
Imagine what a cabinet full of patriotic conservatives, constitutionalists and libertarians could do to restore the Constitution and the historic role of the United States of America. Imagine the amazing legacy they could leave your children.
Urge Ted Cruz to declare early and gather around him a Cabinet/running team that will set the base alight.
Imagine your great country led by leaders of this caliber. You can make make it happen.
