The Satanic Temple Is a Fraud


waving flagAugust 1, 2016 By

A group from Salem Massachusetts is fighting for the right to institute their own version of an afterschool program to elementary schools across the nation. The Satanic Temple’s cofounder Doug Mesner, who goes by the name Lucien Greaves, is attempting to introduce “Satan After School” (SAS) to “counterbalance Christian afterschool programs.”

And not just any Christian afterschool program. They are targeting schools which have allowed the Christian “Good News Club” in.

The Washington Post writes  that what brought on the desire of the Satanic Temple to start an afterschool program was a 2001 supreme Court ruling. The ruling allowed for the Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) to be included in afterschool programs as a matter of free speech rights.

As if we needed the supremes to tell us that. The Post says that the “CEF then went on a tear, and by 2011, it reported 3,560 Good News Clubs, putting them in more than 5% of the nation’s public elementary schools.”

More than 5%? Is that a lot, because it sure doesn’t sound like it. It sounds more like around 95% of the nation’s elementary schools have not invited in the CEF. But this matters not to Mr. Greaves and his Satan After School program. Anymore than 0% is too much for him.

Greaves did however add that, “We would like to thank the Liberty Counsel specifically for opening the doors to the After School 36BC6DF200000578-0-image-m-25_1469922732593Satan Clubs through their dedication to religious liberty.”

Okay – now I have it. It’s not about free speech as much as it is about religious liberty. That’s interesting. They too, like the CEF, want to be included in afterschool programs for reasons of religious liberty – evidently. That is interesting, considering the Satanic Temple states that they really don’t worship anyone or anything. It’s all just an act.

Instead, the Satan After School program intends to include a healthy snack, literature lesson, creative learning activities, a science lesson and art. Is it me, or does this sound like what the kids are doing during a normal school day? What would they need the Satan After School program for?

In other words, the Satan After School program is a fraud, which Greaves is purposely perpetrating on schools and has nothing whatsoever to do with religious liberty.

Chalice Blyth, head of the Satanic Temple’s Utah chapter, said: “The Satanic Temple doesn’t espouse a belief in the existence of a supernatural being that other religions identify solemnly as Satan, or Lucifer, or Beelzebub. The Temple rejects all forms of supernaturalism and is committed to the view that scientific rationality provides the best measure of reality.”Bull

That doesn’t sound at all what Satan would espouse. If I signed my kids up for the SAS program, I’d feel cheated. I thought we signed them up for some good old-fashioned Devil worship. I want my money back! The fact is, this group – at least their leaders, are just dopey atheists who, if pressed, would surely admit that they prefer religion not exist at all. In school – afterschool – anywhere.

The Pipeline We Know Little About


waving flagJuly 29, 2016, By

Remember the Keystone XL Pipeline project? Remember what a cause célèbre it was for both the left and right? What the heck ever happened to it? Have you wondered that?

Well, in short it was killed pretty much for good, or at least the foreseeable future – both here in the USSA and now in Canada. As you are no doubt aware, it was Obama who, with the left in the federal and various state legislatures – and with some help from Choo-choo Warren Buffet who owns most of the rail cars now hauling crude down south, vetoed the pipeline. And don’t forget all the gobs of leftist activist money thrown at killing the project.

You may also recall that Canada threatened to build their own pipeline to their west coast and ship the oil to Asia if the U.S. did not acquiesce. That was when the “conservatives” ran Canada. But with the election of lefty socialist (like there’s another kind) Justin Trudeau in Canada, the entire XL project, above and below the border, was pronounced dead.

And that was the end of any talk of long distance oil pipelines. Or is it?

There is another long distance oil pipeline which will span 1,172 miles – from North Dakota’s famous Bakken and Three Forks oil production zones all the way to Pakota, Illinois. The 30 inch pipeline will be capable of transporting an average of 450,000 barrels of crude per day, but have a capacity of 570,000 barrels – possibly more. With this pipeline, the oil will be available to the Midwest, East Coast and Gulf Coast.

This is way it is supposed work – domestically produced crude, shipped throughout the United States for domestic consumption. No foreign entanglements whatsoever – not even friendly.

I know – you’re waiting for a shoe to drop – right? Well, so far there have been no shoes. On July 27, just two ago the Indian Country Media Network reported  that “Despite the strong opposition of several tribes, the Army Corps of Engineers has approved nearly all permits to build the Dakota Access Pipeline project. Construction has already begun in all four states along its pipeline-full-mappath.”

May I digress for just a moment? Why is it that we whiteys must call American Indians “Indigenous Peoples,” but their own media outlet can be the “Indian Country network?” I guess it’s the same reason blacks can call each other the “n” word, but we would be jailed for it. Oh well.

This time, the Injuns seem to be the only ones making a fuss (not quite) – claiming that a pipeline break could contaminate entire water supplies, destroy land and create public health hazards for reservations – but a train derailment, which are a lot more common, would never.

The only other organization to raise hell over it is of course Think Progress – the ultra-ultra left advocacy organization. If it has anything to do with actual progress, you can bet they will be firmly against it.

Their big beef, other than a pipeline which transports dirty oil and not rainbows and Unicorn farts, is that the feds are virtually shut out of the process. Other than the Army Corps of Engineers permitting process, the pipeline runs almost entirely through State and private land, so there is not much Obama can do – which is probably why we haven’t heard much about it.

Also there is the presidential election, coupled with almost daily terrorist updates worldwide – and the Olympics. These “hot” topics are sucking virtually all the oxygen out of other news.

Then there is the investment being made – all the equipment, pipes, machinery, etc. All cost loads of money, which means an uptick in those manufacturing sectors – none of which the left can tout because of the source. And of course there are all the jobs, which again cannot be discussed by the left.

The Dakota Access Pipeline is a $3.7 billion investment and will create (actually has already begun) anywhere from 8,000 to 12,000 jobs for area residents – maybe more. All trades are needed – from welders to mechanics, electricians, pipefitters, heavy equipment operators and others within the heavy construction industry. Then is the boon to the hospitality industries such as hotels, motels, restaurants, etc. along the route – none of which the press will report on.

Finally there is the increased tax revenue for the four states involved – North and South Dakota, Iowa and Illinois. The pipeline will generate an estimated $50 million annually in property taxes and nearly $74 million in sales taxes to these states.

So hooray for real progress and the relatively quiet production of a much needed domestic pipeline. It’s about time I get a chance to report some good news.

World War III Anyone?


waving flagJuly 25, 2016 By

That's Nothing Watch ThisA 25 page document recently released by the Atlantic Council (AC), based in the U.S., states that Russia could “attack Poland overnight.” The report claims that Russia could take advantage of NATO “being distracted by another crisis” or by misinterpreting activities NATO is involved in. After the annex of Crimea in 2014, the Baltic States have become legitimately nervous, wondering who Ruusia’s next target may be.

Many of these think tanks are employed from time to time to hash out war-game scenarios, as it were. But this is noStand-Off-590-LA game. The Atlantic Council is deadly serious, even going so far as to suggest possible counterattack targets should Russia decide to move on Poland – targets including the Kaliningrad and Metro Moscow.

They warned that “Even if Moscow currently has no immediate intent to challenge NATO directly, this may unexpectedly change overnight.” The Council also recommends that the Obama administration authorize more shipments of missiles to the Baltic region.

In recent years Poland has had a tough time holding onto its citizens. Young men of fighting age have been pulling up stakes and leaving to find work elsewhere. The report recognizes this to be a potential problem and urges Poland to find a way to halt the exodus. They give no suggestion of how this should be accomplished – only that it needs to be a priority.

Sanctions-Bear-LittleVladimir Putin seems to think the escalation between Russia and the West was and is inevitable and claimed in a speech from earlier this year that, “Russia does not wish for the chaos to spread, does not want war, and has no intention of starting one.putin However, today Russia sees the outbreak of global war is almost inevitable, is prepared for, and is continuing to prepare for it.”

Do you believe him? Neither do I. I’m not sure he wants to start World War III and I don’t think he thinks war is inevitable. Escalation of tensions yes – war – I’m not so sure.  I do however believe that Putin thinks the West is weak and has grown cowardly.

But I also believe he has a bit of a hotheaded streak and could be prone to overreaction. He is also, for good or bad (mostly bad), bold and does not go in for the covert.

The report states that, “Russia rarely disguises its true intentions. On the contrary, it has proclaimed to them very publicly on various occasions, but, in general, the West is chosen not to believe Russia’s declarations and disregards its willingness to carry them out.”

Needless to say Poland is not thrilled by the report. Not that they don’t believe it, but they are tired of the whole thing – after centuries of being ruled by others. First by the Russian Empire – then Germany and the Soviet Union in 1939. After World War II, it was back under the Soviet boot until 1989 and now this again.

Putin over ObamaWhether it’s a coincidence or due in part to the AC report, four NATO countries, the United States, Canada, Germany and Britain will send 1000 troops each to the region. Naturally Russia took this as a provocation and warned if NATO dispatched the 4000 troops, “Moscow would respond by posting three new divisions of its own close to the frontier.”

Although many still believe Putin is bluffing about his intentions, the defense minister of Lithuania is certainly not. When questioned on the feasibility of a Russian attack he said: “We cannot exclude it. They might exercise on the borders and then switch to invasion in hours.”

This situation is as serious as it gets. Much more so than ISIS or other terrorist networks. And who do we have as commander-in-chief? The feckless Obama. As long as he remains at the helm, Putin believes he can act without regard. And Putin is not prone to bluffing. He may take a while to set up his chess pieces, but don’t be surprised if you wake up one morning and find he’s made his first move (or second if you count Crimea).

New State Law Will Establish a Permanent Muslim Advisory Council


waving flagJuly 12, 2016 By the Common Constitutionalist

Many ethnic groups in America have representation in local, state and the federal government, but thanks to Justice Hugo Black, religion isn’t afforded the same benefit.

One can be a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and be a Christian, Hindu, Muslim, etc. For example, the Congressional Black Caucus is said to address the concerns of all black Americans, regardless of religion. (They don’t really, but this is just to make a point). Yet due to the mythical separation of church and state, religious organizations are not allowed a seat at the government table – until now.

Once again, like a broken record, there is one “religion” that is extended privileges historically afforded to only secular groups. And of course this is Islam, or what the left has come to call it – the Muslim community – as if Muslim is now an ethnicity.Islam is NOT

Thanks to the tireless work by the radicals of the Muslim Brotherhood, “Illinois could become the first state with a law on the books that gives Muslims a formal voice in government.” The state law would mandate that a 21 member Council “advise the governor and General Assembly on issues affecting Muslim Americans and immigrants.”Islamanipulation

It will be the State’s only religious advisory board. There will be no Christian or Jewish Advisory Council – only Islam will be represented.so america

illinois-muslim-govThis strategy, and believe you me, it is a strategy, is textbook Muslim Brotherhood “Civilization Jihad” – gain seats of power in state and federal government. But this is even better than just a seat of power which can be taken away. The creation of this permanent Muslim Council will become state law. Just when you thought politicians couldn’t get any dumber, they pass a law mandating a permanent Islamist Advisory Council.

It’s ingenious and the current crop of know-nothing hack politicians at the Illinois statehouse are all in. The only thing standing in the way of this becoming law is the governor’s signature.America are you really paying attention

One of the brainiacs, “Democrat Senator Jacqueline Collins, cosponsor of the legislation, thinks the Muslim Council will essentially separate the radical elements of Islam from the more moderate elements.” She said: “We need to encourage our Muslim Americans to be civically engaged and participate. If you don’t participate, the fringe elements establish the policy.” Funny – I bet she has never said that regarding the fringe elements of Christianity.extra bowl of stupid

Strangely enough, all the usual suspects, the “radical fringe elements,” are supporting the legislation, including Brotherhood front groups CAIR and ISNA. In 2011, under former Governor, Democrat Pat Quinn, both CAIR and ISNA successfully infiltrated the governor’s “temporary Muslim American Council.”Islamanipulation

Hopefully, Republican Governor Bruce Rauner is wise to the Brotherhood scheme and will refuse to sign the bill into law.

muslim-obamaBut if he does, Illinois can expect the same type of nonsense already streaming through the federal government. One of the first things they can expect is the whitewashing of all terms that correctly describe Islamism. The Council will suggest that terms such as jihad, Sharia, umma, etc. be scrubbed from any official state documents and disallow politicians from speaking such terms. Just watch – it’s already happening at Homeland Security.

I hope the governor can withstand the pressure and veto this very bad piece of crap – I mean legislation. I’m not sure I hold out much hope – not in a state like Illinois and not if he seeks council from Brotherhood operatives posing as “Republican advisors” the way George W. Bush did.

The Charge of the Transgender Brigade


waving flagMay 23, 2016 By

 

URL of the original posting site: http://commonconstitutionalist.com/political-stuff/the-charge-of-the-transgender-brigade/

Ours is not to wonder why – ours is just to do or get fined. Okay – that’s not exactly accurate, unless you are one of the 600 left to oppose the lefts new civil right – the rights of transgenders or “gender-non-conforming people.” For all these years close minded conservatives have been under the misconception that a person’s sex is synonymous with their gender. Silly backwoods bumpkins. It’s time we were dragged from the dark ages to the 21st century were all gender is fluid.Transgen-600-CI-1

And just to make sure we comply – federal, state and city governments will force us into the proper genderless state of mind.

President Obama recently decreed that all public schools adhere to his new genderless bathroom policy or risk losing their federal education allocations. But he can’t just do that! Of course he can. Other pharaohs before him have made decrees – why not him. So let it be written – so let it be done.

Not to be outdone by Pharaoh Obama, the Communist Politburo of New York City, headed by Comrade Bill de Blasio has upped the ante

Forget about the public sector. That’s no challenge. Progressives in the public sector are already of the same mind – like the Borg. The real challenge is demanding the private sector conform to ridiculous government demands. It’s much more satisfying to roll over the private sector and force them into compliance.

So Comrade de Blasio directed the NYC Commission on Human Rights to draft legal guidelines which “mandate that anyone who provides jobs or housing must use individuals’ preferred gender pronouns.”transrights

“Employers and landlords who intentionally and consistently ignore using pronouns such as ‘ze/hir’ to refer to transgender workers and tenants who request them – may be subject to fines as high as $250,000.”

Okay – so what the heck are ze/hir? Well, the New York Post was good enough to provide a brief explanation. “Examples of less prominent pronouns that some transgender people may choose, according to the city, are: ‘ze,’ which is the third person singular, such as he and she: and ‘hir,’ which is the third person plural, similar to they”Did you just hear what your mouth said

Hold on there. I thought that transgendering (which is impossible) is the transforming of a male into a female or vice versa. So if a dude wants to be a girl, wouldn’t he/she/it want to be called a he or she?

Don’t be silly. The point of this social exercise is to muddy the waters of normalcy and tradition as much is possible. If “ze” ever becomes part of the normal American lexicon, it will have to then be usurped by some other more absurd gender fluid pronoun.

The Gothamist.com insists that the New York Post is overemphasizing the potential $250,000 fine. They explain that fines would only be imposed on those “who maliciously discriminate against transgender or gender-nonconforming individuals by misgendering them would be ‘determined based on the severity of the violation, a history of previous violations, knowledge of the NYC human rights law and the violating company’s size.”

Oh – now I get it. It’s not just about transgender rights. It’s also a shakedown scheme. Did you catch the end of the last quote – depending on “the violating company’s size?” Needless to say, the larger the company, the more cash can be extorted from them – of course knowing full well that most companies will pay the paltry $250,000 fine to avoid any leftist wrath.

Still, to the true believers, this is about some new human right. The city has simply found a way to combine the two. However, if they really want to capitalize on those, they should find themselves a transgender Al Sharpton who can approach companies for a preemptive shakedown.

The American left, through the tutelage of the Obama administration is determined to completely upend traditional society and it appears things couldn’t be going better. At this pace, we won’t recognize the country in 10 years – maybe less.

Perhaps conservatives should all move to Texas and secede while we still have the chance to move about freely.

Yes, the Left Does Cheat – They Do Stuff the Ballot Box


waving flagApril 29, 2016 By the Common Constitutionalist

No – the left never cheats. The left never practices voter fraud. We all know this because it’s been what we’ve been fed for years. According to them and their apologists, there is no such thing as voter fraud, therefore there is no need for any voter I.D. laws or checks of any kind. Only the right does such things by way of telepathic voter intimidation. We think racist thoughts and it bars minorities from voting, or some such nonsense.

But we all know the left cheats. It’s been this way since the Kennedy presidential election. They bus in people from out of town to vote, dead people rise from the grave to cast their ballot, they illegally register voters, and they enlist the New Black Panthers to intimidate voters like in Philadelphia. And if that isn’t enough, they stuff the ballot box.

Of course the left denies all of these assertions. Prove it they say. You cannot make such incendiary claims without hard evidence. Well, it just so happens that the Governor of North Carolina has found such evidence – and plenty of it.

Unless you been stranded at sea or aimlessly roaming the desert with no means of communication, you know about Foden20160303-TGenderthe infamous North Carolina “Bathroom Bill.” Infamous in that it states if you’re a guy, regardless of how you are dressed or the way you “feel” that particular moment, you must use the guys public restroom, locker room, shower, etc. If you are a girl – vice versa.

You should then have seen or heard that leftists and panderers on the right somehow think this is an affront to the transgender set and have boycotted the state, etc.

Naturally the left vehemently disagreed with this perfectly proper State law and so also began a petition drive to pressure lawmakers to rescind it. But the left knows the people of North Carolina don’t have a problem with the law, so rather than give up and accept it as “the law of the land” as they constantly preach to us, they’ve reverted back to what they know best – lie and cheat to get their way.Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

Yet this time they’ve been caught red-handed. Rather than wage a straight-up fight to allow perverts and child molesters to use the little girls bathroom, they’ve stuffed the ballot box – or the petition box – and kudos to Governor Pat McCrory for calling them out and showing the world.

A “Repeal House Bill 2” (HB2) petition drive, sponsored by the ultra-leftist group Human Rights Campaign (HRC), was recently held involving all the usually suspects like the NAACP, Democracy Now!, Turn Out NC and others. Rather than traveling the N.C. countryside and legally collecting signatures, they decided to short cut the procedure.

HRC delivered 175,000 petition signatures in 26 large file boxes to the State House. They held a splashy press conference were an HRC rep stood at a podium behind the stacked boxes. It was truly a sight and a great day for “democracy.” Except that it wasn’t.

Because then came the hard part – the part the left dreads. All the signatures had to be checked for authenticity. Oops!

The Governor posted on Facebook: “Contrary to the media reports, the professional activists only delivered enough petitions to fill two boxes…” But what about the other 24 boxes? They were apparently empty. And it gets much worse for the frauds at HRC.13102682_1025668220845353_5642156182426370938_n

Additionally the Governor adds that, “the overwhelming majority of signatures were from out-of-state. The stacks on the right in each photo consists of out-of-state signatures.” The Governor posted two photos of two stacks of petitions in each photo. The “legal” stack in each photo appears to be no more than 4 or 5 inches high, while the stack of fraudulent signatures should rather be measured in feet, not inches.

It’s a good day for right and for the right, to have a politician who is not afraid to take a stand against insanity, stupidity and criminal activity. I’m also going to go out on a limb and say what HRC did must be illegal. Some person or persons need to go to jail for perpetrating fraud against the state of North Carolina.

From Desegregation to Re-Segregation


waving flagFebruary 1, 2016, By

They endured many abuses, all to give blacks the equality they deserved – so we could share a lunch counter, a water fountain, schools and universities. All spaces would be equal and open to any race.

Well, that was then and this is now. 50 years removed from the movement anddemands for segregation have returned.

You may ask: “Who’s to blame for such an affront? Is it the neo-Nazis or the Klan or maybe the Republicans?” Sadly it is none of these. What some would call bizarro world, others may refer to as college campuses, which these days are synonymous.

Race Baiters 05“Black college students across the country have demanded that they be segregated from white peers, calling for ‘safe spaces’ on campuses meant only for so-called students of color.”

These Black student groups have crafted “76 demand lists, each from a different University.” These various “lists” have been

compiled by a website “run by a racial advocacy group called the Black Liberation Collective.”

The group’s name was obviously intentional and if you have an eye for these things, you’ll notice. The name appears innocuous enough, but it isn’t. Notice the word “Black,” not African-American. This harkens back to the black-power movement of the 1960s. Next, “Liberation,” which is code for black separatism and then of course the Marxist term Race Baiters 09“Collective.”

This “Black Liberation Collective” is nothing more than just another hate filled group designed for the express purpose of fomenting divisions between races, while enriching a select few à la Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

Many of the demands are for “safe spaces.” “At UCLA, the Afrikan Student Union is insisting upon an ‘African Diaspora floor’ as well as an ‘Afro-house,’” because “many black students cannot afford to live in Westwood with the high prices of rent. And Afro-house would provide a cheaper alternative housing solution for Black students.”

I guess the assumption is that all white students are rich and all black students are poor. That’s a pretty racist conclusion and black should be insulted by it. sharptonflagBut evidently they are not.

Most of the “lists” demand segregated spaces for “people of color,” but if you browse the site, TheDemands.orgyou’ll see that it’s all about the cash.

Virtually every list demands huge outlays of cash to support one project or another – $50,000 for this, $500,000 for that – all to confusedfund re-segregation. And the “National Demands” list includes a demand of “free tuition for blacks and indigenous students.”

Speaking as a taxpaying white guy, this sounds perfectly fair and reasonable.

But these groups are a function of the times and they’ve learned from the race pimps and community agitators of yesterday and today. They claim discrimination and disrespect when it furthers their agenda and likewise segregation and racial pride when it suits them. They, as most leftists, want it both ways and if they can’t have it they make a loud enough fuss until some guilty white liberal administrator accedes to their demands – whatever they may be at that moment.

The only way to stop this madness is to say no. Sadly, considering the makeup of American universities, this demand/acquiescence model will continue until the demands can’t possibly be met. And then it will explode in riotous violence.

Dr. King must be spinning in his grave.

You Say Islamist – I Say Wahhabist


waving flagJanuary 5, 2016 By

According to Saudi’s Arabia’s Grand Mufti, Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Asheikh, both ISIS and al-Qaeda are enemy number one. I guess he couldn’t choose just one. Maybe it’s one of those 1 and 1A kinds of things.

Off topic as it is – who chooses the names for these characters anyway? Do they get to choose? If so, why must they always be so long? Could you imagine having to endorse a check or sign one of the tiny electronic keypads at the grocery store – or signing autographs for the Grand Mufti groupies? Sheesh!

Anyway, the Mufti – oh excuse me – the Grand Mufti stated emphatically that, “The ideas of extremism, radicalism and terrorism … have nothing to do with Islam and (their proponents) are the enemy number one of Islam.”

Yet about the time he was condemning the two terror groups for their barbarism, he was signing off on one of the largest mass executions in the country’s history. They executed 47 “criminals.” Among these criminals was a Shiite cleric, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr (again with the names). This did not please Shiite Iran, as response to the executions, they attacked and burned the Saudi embassy in Tehran.

No one knows exactly what  their “crimes” were – only that the verdict against the “47 criminals was based on Allah’s Book and the Prophet’s Sunnah.”

The Grand Mufti, or G-Muf to his homies, claims they were tried properly according to Shariah law and found guilty of killing and making explosives. Well, that’s good enough for me, cause we can’t have anyone killing or making explosives. And I’m sure the cleric Nimrod al-Nimrod, being Shiite, where as the Saudi’s are Sunni, was just a happy coincidence.

Grand Mufti

G-Muf

But the 72 old Grand Mufti, complete with gray beard and gnarled eye, is evidently not without a sense of humor as he stated that not only is ISIS enemy numero uno, but that they “are in actuality Israeli soldiers.” Huh – who knew.

“This threat against Israel is simply a lie. Actually, Daesh (ISIS) is part of the Israeli soldiers,” said G-Muf. “The mufti also dismissed the seriousness of the threat declared by self-proclaimed Islamic State caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. If the Islamic State was serious, al-Asheikh said, they would be ‘killing Jews and liberating Palestine.’” He labeled the Islamic State heretics and they were doing damage to Islam and Muslims.

Well G-Muf –ain’t that the pot calling the kettle black. Sure the Saudi royal family and their holy men, like G-Muf, all publically proclaim their disgust of Islamist terror, but there’s a little thing called Wahhabism, the radical Islamic ideology that dates back a lot further than that of the Islamic State. So it’s time for another history lesson that I’ll guarantee the Grand Mufti knows all about and I also bet he’s a big booster.

The radical Wahhabi movement was founded by – here we go again – Muhammad ibn Abd al Wahhab in the 1700’s. Now, we’ve heard that terrorists like ISIS wish to return to the time of the earliest Muslims in the 7th century. Well, that’s exactly what al-Wahhab wished to do.

Al-Wahhab created the “Kitab al-Tawid” or “Book of God’s Uniqueness,” which became the “guiding text for his followers, who consequently speak of themselves as Muwahhidun (total monotheists) or as Salafis (followers of the ways of the first Muslims).”

After being run out of his home town, al- Wahhab found refuge in the city of Diriyah, north of what is now Riyadh, a city then ruled by Muhammad ibn Saud. The two had a commonality of cause and al-Wahhab agreed to help Saud fight his battles and send messengers of the faith out to spread the word and convert Muslims to Wahhabism. Of course those who refused, just as today, didn’t fare well. The messengers declared that, “King Saud, who was presented as Allah’s chosen monarch to whom all Muslims had to pledge baya, or absolute allegiance, so as not to face annihilation as foes of god.” Sound familiar?

Between 1744 and 1818 Wahhabist preachers, and the troops that backed them up, swept across the region securing the first kingdom of the House of Saud, or Saudi Arabia. The Wahhabist beliefs ran so deep that even the mighty Ottoman empire couldn’t wipe them out completely.

In 1824 the Saudi kingdom reemerged. At the throne was Emirate of Nejd, who ruled the kingdom from it’s new capital, Riyadh, between 1824 and 1891. The third Saudi kingdom started in 1932, who’s ruler, Abdulaziz ibn Saud (’32 – ’53) used Wahhabism to unite the many tribes under the Saudi umbrella.

“King Faisal ibn Abdulaziz al-Saud (ruled 1964–75) decided the propaganda of Wahhabism, which proclaims the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as the sole rightful defender of Islam, would become the long-term strategy for the monarchy’s survival.”

During the Cold War, Fahd bin Abdulaziz Al Saud (ruled 1982 until his death in 2005) saw the opportunity to spread Wahhabism using weaponized jihad. During Fahd’s reign, “Saudi Arabia spent $4 billion per year on mosques, madrassas, preachers, students, and textbooks to spread the Wahhabi creed over the next decades.” But they weren’t/aren’t educating aspiring holy man. They were/are training terrorists – jihadis using Wahhabist theology and oh by the way, American supplied weapons.

And it’s no different today. The Saudis claim to be our friends and allies against terror, but the House of Saud has been quietly funding Wahhabist terror for many decades. They have created the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda and ISIS and their influence is global through their funding of thousands of Mosques and Muslim Centers, where radical Wahhabist preachers recruit new jihadists. Most of the more than 1200 Mosques in the U.S. were funded by the Saudis.

The Saudis are bad people and certainly not our friends. Their radical Wahhabist ideology, while kept under wraps, is entirely incompatible with America and a free, secular society.

So when we hear old G-Muf state that extremism and terrorism are not Islam, you know for fact, he is lying his a** off.

I’ve Had it With the Health Insurance Diatribe


Once again the subject of health insurance has hit the topics of discussion with the anniversary of President Obama’s Socialist Medical Program. During the original arguments, I got real tired of hearing the pundits on all sides make statements that were not true, misleading, and down-right ignorant of the Health Insurance Industry. Today, I heard more conversation and the same misinformation.Let’s discuss some facts you have NOT heard on television, radio are any news outlet;

  1. First fact: Insurance, of any kind, is purchased to give you coverage against a loss. NO INSURANCE COMPANY WILL INSURE A BUILDING WHILE IT IS BURNING. You might say, “Well of course”. Remember that when you hear any discussion of preexisting conditions. Some of those preexisting conditions are the equivalent of a BURNING BUILDING. You’re asking the Insurance Company to BUY CLAIMS IN ADVANCE OF COVERAGE. You wouldn’t so that, and neither do smart insurance companies.
  2. The first question all these pundits need to be asked is, “Do you know how a health insurance premium is determined? What is the formula”? No, they don’t know and that is why they are talking out of their hat.
    1. The formula is M – I + L = Gross Premium. Mortality minus Interest made from investing a determined amount of the premium (it’s the interest off the investments that pay the medical bills. You can’t collect a dollar of premium and pay a dollar of medical bills. That’s bankruptcy) plus the Loading which is the cost of doing business.
    2. Actuaries establishes the statistical probability of medical claims based on age, sex (proven statistic that women use medical practices more than men and THAT is the reason they cost more to insure), ZIP CODE and other factors. that gives the insurance company the Mortality number they need to start the formula.
        1. Before you say anything about the ZIP CODE. It is a fact that some Zip Codes use more of the Medical Community than other Zip Codes. For example, the 900 set of Zip Codes (Los Angeles) are some the most expensive Zip Codes in America. They have one of the largest population of illegal immigrants, legal immigrants from countries that offer social medicine and people in general who cannot afford medical care. All of them use the Emergency Departments of Hospitals for their primary care. That drives up cost, because someone has to cover that cost. It is added to all of us through the Actuaries who use that as one of their statistics.
        2. That is why Health Premiums to cover the same person or family in one Zip Code will be less than another. For example, I had some clients leave Southern California and move to Arizona. Their premiums went down almost half. That’s why you hear these ignorant pundits cry about not crossing State lines to buy insurance. You can do that now, however, you’ll have to drive to Arizona to get your care.
    3. Every State has its own Department of Insurance to regulate who sells what in their State. This is supposed to protect the citizens from false companies selling a product that is no good. However, some of these DOI’s are themselves corrupt seeing to it that only the companies they like can sell in their State.
      1. Each DOI also determines what has to be covered. That varies from State to State, which also determines the prices Health Insurance Premiums. Most pundits don’t want that, and think it corrupt of the insurance industry to charge more to cover more. REMEMBER THE BURNING BUILDING?
      2. That is also why your health insurance coverage might not cover you while you’re traveling. Check the fine print.
    4. The only time health insurance covers you Nationwide is GROUP Coverage. Here the DOI’s have cooperated in the coverage. A Company want to provide health coverage for their people, and they have offices within the State (Zip Code issues), and in other States (Coverage issues). In the company are people with preexisting conditions. So the negotiation begins. The Insurance Company agrees to take a certain amount of risk on those preexisting people in exchange that the company provide coverage for everyone. The Insurance company knows that 20 somethings rarely use their coverage and know they will have less LOSS with them.
      1. Organizations like the NASE have Lobbied Congress aggressively to allow business associations across America to be able to buy Group Insurance. That would allow self-employed people to organize a common association to buy Group Health Insurance Coverage. The larger the group, the better the price they could negotiate better premium rates, and cover their uninsurable employees. This is a GREAT idea, and a major solution to our National Health Coverage Crisis. It is also one of the simplest solution that would cost our government NOTHING. Congress has not budged yet. If they (the Socialist) did, they would lose one more control over American business. By the way. The Self Employed (1 to 8 employees) are the number one employer in America. What a group if anyone got them organized.

Any Insurance Company, insuring anything, has to accept a certain amount of risk in underwriting coverage. Remember, the claims you file are paid with the ROI (Return on Investment) of the part of the premium you gave them to cover your possible loss. I’ve always maintained that the Insurance Companies with the highest cash reserves (ROI) is the company best able to pay a claim in any emergency. I can’t trust a company that is constantly reorganizing because of internal financial problems. They can’t pay their bills, how are they going to pay my claims?

Yes, Health Insurance Companies are in business to make money, and yes some have gone from profitable to greed. The market usually takes care of them because of competition. However, when any State DOI manipulates competition by corrupt practices by allowing only certain companies to sell in their State, that means those citizens are usually not getting the best return on their health care coverage choices.

The solution is simple. Get the Federal Government OUT of the Health Insurance Business. Pass the law allowing self-employed people to form national organizations for the purpose of negotiating for Group Coverage. Elect State Department of Insurance Heads that will drop the unfair competition restrictions, elect State Representatives that will get OUT of the Health Insurance Mandates.

I do not represent that I’ve covered everything about this subject. I have tried to cover the relevant. I welcome your reaction.
