You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

The law is for the little people: A recent ACLU audit finds that the TSA routinely gives a pass to government employees and politicians while blacklisting ordinary citizens.

Meanwhile, conservative writers are quickly put on the terrorist watch list. That’s keeping us safe TSA!

    This is an email that was sent to me, from what I have learned about Islam it seems to be a reasonable conclusion about the subject. Sorry for the length but its worth, no, its essential, to read and understand. I confidently will assume that our current president has a full appreciation for its content. (and so does someone like Allen West who fully understands this and has been warning about this for years)

    Islam in a Nutshell

    Islam, not the Chinese nor the Russians, represents the greatest threat to the world. Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

    Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a
    complete, total, 100% system of life.

    Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military
    components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

    Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.

    When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree
    to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

    Here’s how it works:

    As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

    United States — Muslim 0.6%

    Australia — Muslim 1.5%

    Canada — Muslim 1.9%

    China — Muslim 1.8%

    Italy — Muslim 1.5%

    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and
    disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among
    street gangs. This is happening in:

    Denmark — Muslim 2%

    Germany — Muslim 3.7%

    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%

    Spain — Muslim 4%

    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their
    percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the
    introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing
    food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on
    supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats
    for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

    France — Muslim 8%

    Philippine — Muslim 5%

    Sweden — Muslim 5%

    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%

    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%

    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to
    rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law.

    The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire

    When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase
    lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we
    are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and
    results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to
    Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily,
    particularly in Muslim sections in:

    Guyana — Muslim 10%

    India — Muslim 13.4%

    Israel — Muslim 16%

    Kenya — Muslim 10%

    Russia — Muslim 15%

    After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia
    formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian
    churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks,
    and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%

    Chad — Muslim 53.1%

    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all
    other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic
    cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax
    placed on infidels, such as in:

    Albania — Muslim 70%

    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%

    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%

    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run
    ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the
    infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and is
    on-going in:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%

    Egypt — Muslim 90%

    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%

    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

    Iran — Muslim 98%

    Iraq — Muslim 97%

    Jordan — Muslim 92%

    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%

    Pakistan — Muslim 97%

    Palestine — Muslim 99%

    Syria — Muslim 90%

    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%

    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%

    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of
    Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim,
    the Madrassas are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%

    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%

    Somalia — Muslim 100%

    Yemen — Muslim 100%

    Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most
    radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by
    killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

    ‘Before I was nine, I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me
    against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against
    my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the
    world, and all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

    It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100%
    Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in
    ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by
    Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are
    no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In
    such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The
    children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate
    with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas
    of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than
    the national average would indicate.

    Today ‘s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But
    their birth rates are higher than the birth rates of Christians, Hindus,
    Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the
    world’s population by the end of this century.

    Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the henhouse.

    The wolves will be herding the sheep!

    NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as
    a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant? Just

    Devout Muslims are being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions?

    Doesn’t this make you feel safer already??

    Was it not a Devout Muslim man who killed 13 at Fort Hood? (He killed
    “From within” -don’t forget that).

    Also: This is very interesting, and we all need to read it from start to
    finish. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not
    speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be a good American?
    This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20
    years. The following is his reply:

    Theologically – no . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon God
    of Arabia.

    Religiously – no. Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except
    Islam (Quran, 2:256) (Koran).

    scripturally – no. Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam
    and the Quran.

    Geographically – no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns
    in prayer five times a day.

    Socially – no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends
    with Christians or Jews.

    Politically – no. Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual
    leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the
    great Satan.

    Domestically – no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat
    and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34).

    Intellectually – no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution
    since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be

    Philosophically – no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow
    freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist.
    Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

    Spiritually – no. Because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ the
    Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as
    Heavenly Father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent

    Therefore, after much study and deliberation…. Perhaps we should be very
    suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be
    both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you wish, it’s still
    the truth. You had better believe it. The more people that understand this, the
    better it will be for our country and our future. The religious war is
    bigger than we know or understand.

    Can a Muslim be a good soldier???

    Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, opened fire at Ft. Hood and killed 13. He is a
    good Muslim.

    Ignorant or Intelligent?

    Melisa Harris / Perry and her fellow MSNBC intellectualizers classify the beheading of the woman in Kansas City to be only a “work place violence” incident and do not consider at all apparently
    the plainly stated religion (Muslim) of the perpetrator into consideration. Just like president Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder who consider the murderous attack by Major Hassan who killed 13 and wounded I think about 30 others on a military base while shouting “Alah Akbar!” and who recently declared that he wanted to become a member of the ISIS movement to also be only a case of work place violence.


    While these vial actions have in fact taken place in work environments why do they insist that the religious beliefs of the perpetrators to not be relevant? What is their interest in portraying them
    in such a way without calling out the obvious to me religious motivations of these vial people? I think it is reasonable to drill down on this question and realize what in fact is going on in the leadership of our country and in the media that supports it. These positions IMO are at the least choosing to intellectualize these actions and ignoring the reality that is plain to see in order to promote their political agenda over the interest of the American people or something more existentially threatening to the American people.

    Please feel free to comment on this story and set me straight on what these people are actually up to.

    I suspect that one motivation is to avoid being beheaded themselves.

    This may seem flippant, but it is not. Although reporters have favored Islam for years or decades, the response to the Danish cartoons, a few years ago, is telling. Several threats, deadly riots, act of terror, and even an assassination attempt resulted from that publication (though I understand that the cartoons published were not bad enough to elicit a response, so some Imam showed other cartoons, saying that *those* were the published ones, before the response occurred).

    The news media mindset seems to be to avoid upsetting the violent people, a kind of “go along to get along,” even if that means self censorship, censorship of others, telling everyone that Islam is the (only) religion of peace, or telling everyone that Muslims are humorous (after all, everyone loves a clown, right?).

    Whatever it takes to keep your newspaper, TV or radio station, or offices from being the next terrorist target. Besides, if you appear to be on the side of the tyrant, then the tyrant won’t kill you when the time comes. (This worked so well for the Jews who collaborated with the NAZIs during WWII.)

    Another possibility is that to criticize a culture that is not dominant in America or Europe would violate the precepts of “multiculturalism,” in which the dominant culture is seen as evil (for having quashed the other cultures through violence) and the minority cultures are seen as victims. It does not matter that in the countries where such minority cultures are dominant the other cultures are violently eliminated (perhaps through genocide) or intimidated into silence.

    Of course, Cotour, I am preaching to the choir, as you recently pointed out this systematic elimination of cultures that compete with Sharia/Islam:

    Long term does Islam win? Is it inevitable, say, in 300 years?

    I sent what I posted here to a female friend who works for the NYT’s and she sent back a reply pointing out all of the violence contained in the Bible, this of course is distractionary and did not answer my question about Melisa Harris / Perry and what drives her and her like to intellectualize everything that they consider. Her response was much like anytime you point out an Obama issue and the reply automatically is “but George Bush”.

    Yes, I agree with you that the mass of the people just want to live their lives and when a minority number of extremists take violent actions we all tend to hedge and sensor what we say in order to not be next. Terrorism is an effective tool for a minority attempting to effect the change that they see fit in their attempt to acquire power and people like Ms. Perry and our current president IMO pander to these people at our great long term cost. Weak, weak, weak.
