Orlando Muslim shooter: A registered Democrat who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State

fatawa Islamiyah book coverThe Fatawa Islamiyah (Islamic Verdicts) provides the Islamic ruling regarding homosexuality in Volume 6, p. 199. The Ruling on Sodomy and the Punishment Thereof states:

“What is the ruling on sodomy in Islam and what is the punishment?

“The shameful act of sodomy is one of the most repugnant of shameful acts and we seek refuge with Allah (from it). Because of it, Allah destroyed the people of Lut, peace be upon him, and punished them with a terrible punishment, turning their homes upside down and raining stones of baked clay upon them, layer upon layer, (as Allah said): “marked from your Lord and they are not ever far from the wrongdoers.”

“It has been reported from the Companions, may Allah be pleased with them, that the punishment for one who does that or allows it to be done to him is that he be killed. Or, tobe burnt or to be stoned. Or, to be thrown from the highest point (mountain, tower, lofty building etc.), then to follow it with stoning.

“This is because of its corruption of morals, customs, and because of its violation of the natural human state, and because the abandonment of lawful marriage by those who practice.

“Ibn Jibreen” [Emphasis added]

More information is coming out about Omar Seddique Mateen who entered the Orlando Pulse club then slaughtered 50 homosexuals and wounded 53 others, some in critical condition.

According to records (screen shot below) from St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, Omar Mir Seddique Mateen was a registered Democrat who listed his race as “other.”

On April 6, 2016, Tom Trento from The United West (TUW) posted a warning about a speaker at a mosque in Orlando, Florida. The Muslim speaker stated, “Death is the sentence [for gays]. We know. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about this. Death is the sentence.” TUW then posted the video below on YouTube to warn the general public:

On June 12, 2016 Patrick Poole reported:

Sources are telling the Daily Beast that suspected killer Omar Mateen had previously been investigated by the FBI in 2013 and 2014, making this yet another “known wolf” terror attack:

Omar Mateen of Port Saint Lucie, Florida, came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast.

Mateen 53 people and shot more than 100 in total at the Pulse gay nightclub early Sunday morning, in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.The senior law enforcement source reports that Mateen became a person of interest in 2013 and again in 2014. The Federal Bureau of Investigation at one point opened an investigation into Mateen but subsequently closed the case when it produced nothing that appeared to warrant further investigation.

“He’s a known quantity,” the source said. “He’s been on the radar before.”

Mateen was a U.S. citizen; his parents are from Afghanistan, CBS News reports.

In the article Florida Pulse Gay Bar Mass Shooting was in a Gun Free Zone, Dean Weingarten reports:

It is clear that Florida law prohibits people from legally carrying guns into:

Bars are one of a long list of places that Florida establishes as gun free zones.

This is the most deadly attack by a follower of Mohammed in Florida and perhaps in the United States, to date. Some news outlets are calling Mateen homophobic. Others call him a devout Muslim.

We report, you decide.

Suspected shooter 29-year old Omar H. Mateen from Port St. Lucie, FL.

“Police said the gunman was believed to be in his 20s was not a local man, and the FBI believe he may have ‘leanings to radical Islamic terrorism.’”

We tried to sound a warning on this, and were vilified for doing so. When AFDI ran ads highlighting the mistreatment of gays in Islamic law, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, which is its city council, issued a resolution condemning not that mistreatment, but our ads.

Gay advocates such as Theresa Sparks and Chris Stedman attacked us for daring to call attention to the institutionalized mistreatment of gays under Islamic law. Their gay advocacy doesn’t extend to standing up to Sharia oppression of gays, even though that oppression is far more virulent and violent than anything from “right-wing extremists” in the U.S. And you can’t blame them: given the Leftist/jihadist alliance, it’s clear that if they spoke out against Sharia mistreatment of gays, they would no longer be invited to the best parties, and might even be branded as “right-wing.” Their moral cowardice and duplicity, however, are obvious, and monstrous in the light of what has just happened in Orlando.

Pulse club Orlando Florida

“‘We consider this an act of terrorism’: Suspected Islamic extremist shoots dead at least 20 dead at Florida gay club after bursting in ‘wearing a suicide vest’ and taking hostages – injuring a further 42,” by Matt Hunter and Jenny Stanton, Dailymail.com, June 12, 2016:

A suspected Islamic extremist [Omar Mateen] wielding an assault rifle and a handgun has killed about 20 people after taking party-goers hostage inside a gay nightclub in Orlando.

The gunman was carrying a suspicious device, possibly a suicide vest, when he opened fire inside Pulse in the early hours of this morning.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said authorities have not determined the exact number of people killed, but that ‘approximately 20’ have died. Another 42 people were taken to hospital.

An FBI spokesman said the mass shooting is being investigated as an act of terrorism. He explained authorities are looking into whether this was an act of domestic or international terror, and if the shooter was a lone wolf.

Police said the gunman was believed to be in his 20s was not a local man, and the FBI believe he may have ‘leanings to radical Islamic terrorism’.

The killings took place less than four miles from where The Voice singer and YouTube star Christina Grimmie, 22, was shot dead at The Plaza Live in Orlando on Friday.

Party-goers were urged to ‘get out and keep running’ as bullets started flying at around 2am local time.

Eyewitnesses described the gunman having a bomb strapped to himself when he started shooting today.

At around 6.00 local time (11am GMT) police said on Twitter: ‘Pulse Shooting: The shooter inside the club is dead.’ Officers described it as a ‘mass shooting’.

One man who said he was inside the club posted that the shooting broke out around 2 a.m. and that he heard about 40 shots being fired.

Police earlier carried out an controlled explosion at 5.15 local time (10.15am GMT today). but it is not yet clear whether that was linked with the gunman’s death.

It was thought that at least one hostage had been locked in a bathroom with gunshot wounds.

Around 100 officers were involved in the hostage situation before the gunman was killed.

During the gunfire, an officer was shot, but he was saved by his helmet.

Local TV reporter Stewart Moore said that more than 20 people had been shot with an assault rifle.

Jon Alamo said he was at the back of one of the club’s rooms when a man holding a weapon came into the front of the room.

‘I heard 20, 40, 50 shots,’ Alamo said. ‘The music stopped.’

Club-goer Rob Rick said it happened around, 2 a.m., just before closing time. ‘Everybody was drinking their last sip,’ he said.

He estimated more than 100 people were still inside when he heard shots, got on the ground and crawled toward a DJ booth.

A bouncer knocked down a partition between the club area and an area in the back where only workers are allowed. People inside were able to then escape through the back of the club.

Christopher Hansen said he was in the VIP lounge when he started hearing gunshots.

‘I was thinking, are you kidding me? So I just dropped down. I just said please, please, please, I want to make it out,’ he said. ‘And when I did, I saw people shot. I saw blood. You hope and pray you don’t get shot.’

He continued to hear shooting even after he emerged, where police were telling people to back away from the club. He saw injured people being tended to across the street.

Mina Justice was outside the club trying to contact her 30-year-old son Eddie, who texted her when the shooting happened and asked her to call police.

He told her he ran into a bathroom with other club patrons to hide. He then texted her: ‘He’s coming.’

‘The next text said: `He has us, and he’s in here with us,” she said. ‘That was the last conversation.’

Ricardo Almodovar was in the nightclub. He said: ‘Shooter opened fire at around 2.00am. People on the dance floor and bar got down on the floor and some of us who were near the bar and back exit managed to go out through the outdoor area and just ran.

‘I am safely home and hoping everyone gets home safely as well.’ Juan Rivera said on Twitter: ‘Never seen so many dead bodies on the floor, God is good that my friends and I didn’t get shot’.

Anthony Torres heard people screaming that others in the nightclub were dead.

Rosie Feba was in the club with her girlfriend and described the moment the shooting happened to the Orlando Sentinal.

She said: ‘Everyone was getting on the floor.I told her [girlfriend] I didn’t think it was real, I thought it was just part of the music, until I saw fire coming out of his gun.’

A police dispatcher described the incident as an ‘active shooting’. Officers are advising locals to stay away from the area.

He said: ‘There are injuries. I am not sure if there are any deceased at this time.’

‘Officers are going in to search the building and to get people out,’ the dispatcher said.

The police department posted on their official Twitter account: ‘Multiple injuries. Stay away from the area.’

Pulse nightclub said on its Facebook account: ‘Everyone get out of Pulse and keep running.’

Dozens of officers and medics are at the scene including Orlando Fire Department’s bomb squad and hazardous material team.

Police have not given any further updates on the hostage situation or the gunman….

Oppose Common Core? You may be on the IRS Hit List!

This week, Dissident Prof had the honor of being among such luminaries as the Wetumpka (Alabama) Tea Party and NorCal Tea Party Patriots, as well as tea parties in such places as Clark Valley, Clinton County, Dallas, Dayton, Dupage, and with the Conservative Roundtable of Texas, and Conservative Women for a Better Future, a total of 426 organizations designated by the IRS as having the wrong “viewpoint” for non-profit status. Our applications for 501(c)(3) status were “flagged” and held up.  We were subjected to extra scrutiny when the IRS did respond.  Dissident Prof is a plaintiff in the class action lawsuit against the IRS.

After being stonewalled for over a year, we at Dissident Prof were asked to jump to and justify our stance on, among other things, but primarily, Common Core.  I had to account for every penny spent since I started with my own funds while working as a college instructor.  The IRS did everything short of scouring the files in my office in the basement of my house where I spent hours and hours writing and setting up the organization.

In the meantime, liberal groups like Better Georgia were inundating my inbox with appeals to turn Georgia “blue.”

Turns out that the list released this week is much longer than the original 298 identified by the IRS inspector general in May 2013.  Lo and behold, Better Georgia is on the list! According to PJ Media, “Lawyer Edward D. Greim said the list may have added some liberal targets as it came to light the agency was being investigated for singling out suspected right-wing groups.”

So nice to add Better Georgia and a sprinkling of Occupy groups.  Doesn’t look as bad.

As a Dissident Prof who had taught college English for nearly 20 years and had been researching and writing about Common Core from almost the time since the “standards” were dangled to the states in competition for stimulus money, I testified about its detrimental effects.  I also wrote about the disadvantage posed to volunteers, citizens, and tea party groups as public employees and Chamber of Commerce-funded pro-Common Core groups were allowed to speak and offer workshops at publicly funded “parental engagement” conferences on the wonders of Common Core.

At a state board of education meeting, after spending three minutes testifying as a giant clock ticked down the seconds, I listened incredulously as one board of education member congratulated herself and colleagues for allowing me and parents and volunteers three minutes to present our case without being “thrown in jail.”  It was a display of the wonder of “democracy” she declared, after allowing a state employee to wax on for 20 minutes about the upcoming “parental engagement” conference where Dana Rickman, of the Chamber of Commerce funded nonprofit floundered about, bamboozling parents about the wonders of Common Core.

IRS concern?IRS concern? For the privilege of addressing the state school board in the state in which I lived about how I thought Common Core would not prepare students for freshman composition and for daring to express my opinion in writing, I was presented by the IRS, 18 months after my application had been submitted and my $850 application check cashed, with the first information request (to be completed in about 2 weeks pronto!). Item 5 from Carly Young in the notorious Cincinnati office demanded:

It appears that a substantial portion of your website is devoted to your opposition to Common Core, including discussions of its negative impact and legislation intended to withdraw states from Common Core.  You also provided a direct link to a website that engages in legislative and/or political activities.  (See attached pages from your website.)

This activity appears to influence legislation, however [sic] you checked no to Part VIII, line 2a on your Form 1023.  Provide the following information.

a. Describe these activities in greater detail, including the percentage of your total expenditures and total time you intend to spend on these activities in the future.  For purposes of calculating the percentage of expenditures, allocate salaries, administrative, overhead, and other general expenditures to these activities using a reasonable method.  For purposes of calculating the percentage of time, include volunteer as well as employee hours.

b. Submit representative copies of the materials you prepare or distribute in furtherance of these activities.

Hmm, okay, let’s see.  I took the train to the state capitol and board of education headquarters in downtown Atlanta ($5.00 round trip).  I did not have at my disposal the school buses that were parked around the Georgia state capitol during a hearing on an anti-Common Core bill and that had been ordered by a school superintendent.  Nor did I have job-fearing public school teachers testifying for my viewpoint.

As I described in several articles, I and parents, teachers, and tea party members were told we should be glad for the privilege of having our freedom after being allowed to address our representatives in increments of one to three minutes.  Of course, after the self-congratulations on the “democratic process” and after being ignored, all anti-Common Core legislation was defeated.

In contrast, pro-Common Core lawmakers gave due deference to principals of non-profit groups like the Chamber of Commerce-supported Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education (GPEE).

As I described in another article, GPEE then sent Dana Rickman to bamboozle parents selected by school districts about Common Core. This was done in a public facility with public support, ultimately.

The federal Common Core standards themselves were developed by well-connected non-profits with the support primarily of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which then funded Chambers of Commerce, which then funded groups like GPEE, which then lobbied against citzens’ wishes and left them with the final bill for Common Core.  I dared to testify against Common Core and thought that those who contributed to help me do my work should enjoy the same tax exemptions as Bill and Melinda Gates.

We did win 501(c)(3) status as I announced before–but not before undergoing costly delays and harassment.

PM Trudeau! Please Assure Me and Canadians About Free Press

An Open Letter to Justin Trudeau about intimidations and threats from Muslim MPs in the government.

Dear Mr. Prime Minister Hon. Justin Trudeau,

As a journalist, a member of PEN Canada and a member of CJFE, I agree with you what you have clearly said last Friday that freedom of the press is very important to you and Canada.

You were saying this in the context of Chinese Foreign Minister’s angry remarks in Ottawa about a Canadian Journalist, Kevin Garratt, who has been jailed in China. But sadly I got harassed, humiliated and bullied by your three MPs on the following day in Mississauga in the wake of my rights for free press.

On that harassing incident, I was about to call the police but then took a deep breath and decided to reflect in it the press.

On a bright sunny Saturday afternoon, I saw MP Omar Alghabra walking to an event stage with two other MPs, Salma Zahid and Iqra Khalid. I was standing with my wife, Haleema Sadia and a few friends at the Halal Food Festival, Celebration Square Mississauga.

As we knew all three MPs, my wife and I greeted them. My wife, an anchor person, asked MP Omar Alghabra to come to our TAG TV Studio. Alghabra blasted us in return and pointed out to me that I wrote a misleading article against him and the infiltration of Islamists to the liberal party.

I answered that I didn’t write any misleading article.

Then he opened his smart phone and showed me my article with the title, “Brotherhood Front Groups Target Canadian Parliament,” that was published in April 3, 2014.

He accused me of attacking the Muslim Brotherhood, Jama’at-e-Islami and other Muslim groups in that article and called me a discredited journalist. He then lectured me about ethics of journalism for around fifteen minutes.

MP Salma Zahid jumped into the discussion and accused me of mentioning her name against previous government’s Bill C51 (that I never did). Then MP Iqra Khalid accused me of associating her with Jama’at-e-Islami.

Sadly, the way those MPs surrounded and harassed me and my wife that Saturday afternoon prove my fears what I have expressed in the same article two years ago.

I pondered that if my single article about my opinion on growing Islamic extremism is upsetting those Canadian Muslim MPs to that extent that they were so intolerant and humiliating to me and my wife (we are both Progressive Canadian Muslims who don’t necessarily buy their perception of Islam) and towards dissident thoughts, how could we expect them to create a bridge between the government and Canada’s diverse Muslim communities?

It’s not the first time we experienced such attacking behavior from them. They have been observed by other community members as talking negatively about our writing and speaking our ideas in the Canadian Pakistani and Muslim communities.

My wife was shocked and wondered, based on this highly irresponsible and humiliating behavior, whether or not those MPs belong in the Canadian Parliament or rather a parliament in Pakistan or Syria.

She fearfully asks me what would happen to us as those three member parliaments have in a way threatened us and our right to a free press.

I responded to my wife that we will keep fighting for our rights for a free press, even against those powerful people who misuse their powers and try to harm us.

I hope you will help assure our safety and maintain environment of a free press that is dear to you and all Canadians as well.

The Islamic State Among Us

According to the Department of Justice an Iraqi immigrant, now a U.S. citizen was just sentenced to 48 months in prison for lying to the FBI about a trip he took into Syria in 2013.

Iraqi-born, Bilal Abood, 38 years old of Mesquite, Texas was a former translator who took advantage of a special program that catapulted those towards citizenship who helped our military.  He also joined the U.S. Army and went through basic training but left after the Army would not allow him to go back to visit family in Iraq.

That was the story he told to the FBI in March of 2013 as he attempted to board a flight from Fort Worth International Airport, he just wanted to travel to Iraq to see his family. Apparently, the real reason was to get to Syria and fight with Islamic State.

In reality according to the DOJ website,

“On approximately April 29, 2013, Abood left the United States through Mexico and traveled through various countries into Syria.  On Sept. 16, 2013, Abood returned to the United States and admitted to FBI special agents that he had traveled to Syria, but he denied supporting any terrorist groups.”

According to Counter Extremism Project Abood began working as a security guard in 2009 after arriving here from Iraq. Following the false report he made to the FBI in 2013, a warrant was obtained to search his computer. Its inspection revealed pro-Islamic State propaganda and tweets supporting Abu Bakr Bagdadi.

In addition,  he has received Army training, and has experience as a security guard which makes Abood especially dangerous, according to FBI Special Agent John Brown.

Considering his background one would think he should be carted off and put into Guantanamo. Why is this jihadi terrorist only receiving 4 years prison time? One could make a reasonable bet that it will be cut in half for good behavior. This dangerous jihadi may possibly be out on the streets of Texas in 24 months.

Alexandria-Islamic-State

Mohamad Jamal Khweis.

On the East side of the country we have a recently reported case of Mohamad Jamal Khweis, of Alexandria, Virginia, born to Pakistani immigrants, who is being charged with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

According to USA Today,

“Khweis, who spoke to Kurdistan24 TV in March after fleeing ISIL, said he was raised in in a Washington, D.C., suburb and had studied criminal law at a community college. The son of a limo driver and cosmetologist also worked for a time as a Virginia bank teller.”

Khweis apparently sold his car to travel through Europe and Turkey to get into Syria. Once in Syria he was taken to a place in Raqqa and stripped of all identification. Some interesting testimony from Mohamad follows in the article:

  • “he was asked at one point whether he wanted to be a suicide bomber, and he answered, ‘yes,’ thinking the question was intended to test his commitment to ISIL.”
  • “the recruits met with a special ISIL group responsible for training foreign volunteers and sending them “back to their home countries to conduct operations and execute attacks.”
  • “Khweis also described rigorous religious training where an Imam would end each lesson by stating, “May God destroy America.”

This type of travel for Islamic State sympathizers and jihadis seems to be getting little more than a ho-hum from the American media. When one ponders the fact that America is an outsourcer of Islamic terrorism, it begins to awaken the average citizen to the fact that we are being constantly infiltrated with terrorists and terrorist sympathizers within our borders. The majority of Islamic terrorist attacks committed here in America, and there have been many, have been perpetrated either by Muslim immigrants or families of Muslim immigrants, and have received teaching from Mosques here in America.

Can there be a connection here, and might that connection just spur our legislators to clamp down on immigration from hot-beds of Islamic terrorism so as to uphold the oath they took to protect from enemies both foreign and domestic? If not, then the legislators deserve to be physically removed from their offices by We the People.

Therefore, it makes perfect sense to ban any more Muslims from entering this country until we can deal with the terrorists and would-be terrorists already within our flimsy borders. Many are entering our borders through legal means, be it the Refugee Resettlement Program, Hb1, and student visas. These programs need to be halted, and/or extensively limited until proven safe for Americans.

Thank God for the FBI agents who are doing a tremendous job to weed out and capture these Muslims who pose a threat to our personal security. They have a magnanimous job ahead of them though as the President and his administration continue to add more potential terrorists who may end up like Abood and Khweis as they pledge themselves to Islamic State.

One might wonder how many of these stealth jihadists are we rubbing shoulders with on a daily basis without even knowing it? Authentic Americans who love their God-given freedoms had better stand now to demand some action from many in Congress who are failing in their duties to this country. A good place to start would be to defund the Refugee Resettlement Program.

What the Post won’t Post

The Washington Post, in its Standards and Ethics, committed itself to “an aggressive, responsible and fair pursuit of the truth,” so that the reader may be “without fear of any special interest,” but it has abandoned its pledge.  Pursuant to the recent wave of deadly Palestinian attacks against Israelis, the newspaper’s Beirut correspondent Hugh Naylor had utterly ignored the terror victims’ horrific sufferings and, instead, focused on the discomfort claimed by Palestinians.

Since September 2015, four hundred and forty-four Jews have been injured, some quite seriously, and 34 killed in what the Palestinians arrogantly call the Knife Intifada. There were also at least 851 stone-throwings and 337 petrol bomb-throwings, with many more that had gone unreported. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a despicable, deceitful man who indoctrinates his people from toddlerhood to hate Jews, incites them to attack and kill civilians with an assortment of weaponry (knives, axes, meat cleavers, screwdrivers). This time the fabricated threat is that Israel was plotting to close down the Al Aqsa Mosque.

Israel is a democracy, however, and under Israeli rule, no religious group has ever been deprived of visiting its sacred sites. By contrast, during the 19 years of Jordanian rule, Jews were forbidden entry and Christians were under such strict government repression that they were forced to emigrate, severely dwindling the Christian population. When the Jews regained East Jerusalem in 1967, all but one of 35 synagogues were completely ravaged and used for stables and filth, Jewish tombstones on the Mount of Olives cemetery were broken, and holy books burned. More than mere vandalism or the allegation that they must destroy idols, these behaviors are intended to erase the memory and proof of existence of all religions but Islam.

The Washington Post and its journalists surely know that under Israeli rule, Muslims may practice Islam in Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, even though Muslims forcibly turn away Jews from their holiest site, the Temple Mount (location of the Al Aqsa Mosque). Israel also recently issued nearly 90,000 travel permits to Palestinians who wish to visit family and the Al Aqsa in deference to their religious month of Ramadan.  The Palestinians responded with another terrorist attack, killing four and injuring at least six, possibly 17, in an upscale Tel Aviv marketplace – another challenge for Israel’s compassion and the journalists who eschew the truth.

The identity of the recent Intifada victims are known, but Naylor ignores them. They include several young rabbis who left behind wives, each with several young children; one whose wife and one child were also critically injured; and a rabbi and his son who were both killed en route to celebrate his daughter’s wedding.

Others were a professor of economics, son of Holocaust survivors; a Palestinian woman returning home from work; a 21-year-old theater major who had just completed her national service; the owner of a recording studio, married with two daughters; a civil employee of the IDF, murdered during a celebratory weekend for a friend’s birthday; a 26-year-old law student; a taxi-driver; a nurse and mother of six, age 38; a 30-year-old pregnant woman; a youth-group leader, age 24; a member of the Golani Brigade and sole support of his mother and two siblings; and a young border policeman. The list could cover many pages, each name representing an empty space at a table, a beloved child or parent who will never return, the private tears and sorrow that the world never sees.

Foreign-born citizens were not invulnerable, and included an Iraqi silversmith, father of five; an Azerbaijani security guard; a Uzbekistani man who was shopping in a Judaica store; an Argentinean rabbi, teacher, husband and father of seven; an American peace activist, English teacher and father, who had marched for civil rights and desegregation in the American South with Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr.; a US citizen, age 18, who was planning to attend Rutgers University; an American West Point Academy graduate, 29, who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and was signed up for the Vanderbilt MBA Program, and whose wife was among the injured.  When the news hit, the callous Palestinians celebrated in the streets, but this was also not reported.

Neither did Naylor attempt to interview the new widows and widowers, the parents who must cope with the loss of a child, or the children traumatized by the loss of a parent.  He gives no voice to the severely injured, whose planned futures have suddenly been forever changed or erased, and who must now deal with significant and still life-threatening injuries, including severe and extensive burns from bus explosions. Rather, he confers with Palestinian Arabs, who speak of the inconvenience of additional checkpoints that turn a job commute into an “hour-long ordeal.” Indifferent to how their co-religionists are murdering Jews and Christians worldwide, they lament about the increased military patrols and raids, or having to face deserved, but non-existent, Jewish retaliation – and the Washington Post and its agents buy into their trifling presumption of victimhood.

Feigning ignorance of 3,000 years of continuous Jewish presence in Jerusalem, Naylor chooses to grumble about “Jewish settlements” in East Jerusalem, an inappropriate term for the indigenous people. But there were no “settlements” or “occupation” or sovereign Israel when the barbarians conducted deadly pogroms against Jews in 1920, ’21, ’29, and ’36. Naylor should know Israel became a sovereign nation in 1948, and these are not “settlements” but normal neighborhood development.  He should know that there was never a Palestinian people or nation prior to 1967, when these Arabs reinvented themselves after losing their aggressive war. He should also know that Judea and Samaria were called the West Bank for merely 19 years of Jordanian occupation, and that the Palestinians are settlers in a land that was never theirs.  He should know, and he does, but his objective is to market the Post’s view. The major obstacle to the creation of an independent Palestinian state has been and remains Palestinian. They have consistently refused peace and turned land offers into war zones for their eternal jihad, mandated in their Koran, intensified by their President and drilled home during their five daily prayer times.

Naylor parrots the Palestinian narrative that Israel captured and annexed Jerusalem during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, but fails to make clear that this was the result of defending herself against the joint forces of five Arab countries whose purpose was to obliterate Israel. Military control of the West Bank was clearly the result of a defensive war: “International jurists generally draw a distinction between situations of “aggressive conquest” and territorial disputes that arise after a war of self-defense. Former State Department Legal Advisor Stephen Schwebel, who later headed the International Court of Justice in The Hague, wrote in 1970 regarding Israel’s case: “Where the prior holder of territory had seized that territory unlawfully (in this case, Jordan), the state which subsequently takes that territory in the lawful exercise of self-defense has, against the prior holder, better title.” For this reason, the term “occupation” is wrong and misleading. Israel did not decide to “occupy” the land; her presence resulted from a war executed by Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia, and backed by Russian supplies to Kuwait, Algeria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

In defense of attacking Israelis with knives, Naylor falsely claims that Palestinians face discrimination in public spending on infrastructure and zoning restrictions, but, to repeat, Judea and Samaria have not been annexed or occupied by Israel. In fact, Israel has withdrawn from about 94% of the territory it captured in 1967. Naylor needs to consider that no other group resorts to such violence during times of inconvenience, and that this behavior is inherent in the Islamic ideology and culture, dictating violence not merely in Israel but throughout the world, where killing is done in the name of Allah, not Jesus, not Jehovah or Moses or Buddha or any other deities.  The hate is embedded in the collective consciousness of Islam, along with their jubilation at bloodshed.

It is the Washington Post and other biased newspapers as well as BDS groups on American campuses that provide a platform for Palestinians to whine about vague (never specific) regulations, deliberately ignoring the fact that these Palestinians are not citizens of Israel at all and have no claim to citizenship rights. Their actual position is that they are under military law administered by the Israel Defense Forces Central Command in disputed territory, and they remain so because of their unwillingness to end violence against Israel. Palestinians have had many opportunities, but refused to negotiate a final settlement for a peaceful future for all.

And the options for Palestinians are many: to recognize and work to overcome the directives of hate and death in the Koran; to start teaching the truth about their history to all their citizens, beginning with the children; to stop living under the inhumane threat of Sharia law; to cease the constant incitement through their mosques, schools and media; and to learn and accept how to live in peace with non-Muslims.

Throughout their Koran, they are instructed to follow in the footsteps of their prophet – to kill Jews and Christians for the ultimate goal of Islamic world domination. Their goal is to destroy Israel, implement Sharia worldwide and to re-establish the global Islamic State (caliphate).

o9:0  JIHAD “Jihad means to war against non-Muslims and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion. (1) “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Koran 2:216); “Slay them wherever you find them” (Koran 4:89); “Fight the idolators utterly” (Koran 9:36).

The entire world is at risk and the Washington Post is the spokesman for savagery.

VIDEO: CAIR’s Hassan Shibly Schemes To Manufacture Airport Inspection Complaints

On May 29, 2016 The Council On American Islamic Relations (CAIR) leader Hassan Shibly was returning to the U.S. from Istanbul Turkey.  At the airport, Mr. Shibly, was asked for a secondary screening by Custom’s and Border Protection (CBP) Agents.

Hassan Shibly got so unhinged, at his secondary screening by the (CBP) he made two selfie videos posting them to his FaceBook page on May 29th & 30th, explaining how certain Muslims should behave when being questioned at the airport.

I will explain how Imam Shibly and CAIR are instructing Muslims to be loud and disrespectful to airport security hoping to generate a mass complaint lawsuit against the U.S. Government for Muslim discrimination at airports.

Hassan Shibly, and many Muslim advocacy groups derive their power by conflating Islam, Muslim, and race.  Everyone knows that a follower of Islam is called a Muslim and there is no racial component in Islam.  It is this false idea of Islam being a race that CAIR plays so well on the unknowing public.

CAIR believes these manufactured secondary inspection complaints will trigger a government report and class action lawsuit on how Muslims are singled out at airports.  The objective is to scare law enforcement into granting accommodations to Muslims over and above the rest of the general population.

Hassan Shibly’s Advice To His Fellow Muslims:

  1. When a CBP agent asks you anything beyond identification tell the agent, “None of your Damn Business.”
  2. If your being questioned and its prayer time,  stop everything, prostate yourself, and pray loudly, Brothers and Sisters must not skip their prayers.
  3. Immediately call CAIR and file a complaint with us that you were targeted for inspection.
  4. On behalf of CAIR I will then file a ‘Mass discrimination Complaint’ but I need your help to do it,  so file a complaint because we need a lot of them to bring change and justice.

Let me explain how haram and deceitful Imam Hassan Shibly really is. Imam Shibly lies to his fellow Muslims telling them not to miss a prayer, when traveling,  even if you’re in the middle of a secondary inspection.  Most of the people of knowledge are of the opinion that it is permissible to combine two prayers during the time of either one of them while traveling.  Mohammad himself combined the zuhr and ‘asr prayers before he started his journey in Tabuk.

Hassan Shibly and CAIR are so obsessed on getting these complaints filed they’re instructing Muslims to disregard the example of Mohammad, which is a very serious business in the world of Islam. Innocent Muslims accepting Mr. Shibly’s counsel will be  drawing unneeded attention to themselves, with loud prayers and telling authorities, it’s none of your damn business, over and over.  Hassan Shibly, is betting these innocent Muslim travelers, following his advice, will get extra CBP attention resulting in more complaints for CAIR to achieve their political objectives.

Conclusion

According to 2014 FBI statistics, 56.8% of anti-religious hate crimes were committed against Jews.

Coming in second at 16.1% were Muslims.

I encourage all followers of Islam, to be positive,  go out of you’re way to thank law enforcement and our military men and women for keeping us all safe.  If the CBP calls you in for secondary screening,  cooperate with them, answer their questions, tell them you understand their job is to keep us all safe and its not an easy one.

Put yourself in the shoes of law enforcement and treat them with the respect they deserve.  You will find that once your personal attitude becomes positive, those in authority and in your day to day interactions with people will become more positive.

When you drink from the fountain of positive energy you will see the world differently and most people will respond in kind.

There are people out there like Hassan Shibly and CAIR who will use your positive energy and manufacture hate out of it.  To all my Muslim friends and neighbors, please don’t let Hassan Shibly and CAIR take you down that dark road of manufactured victimhood.

Gun Owners All-in for Trump

BELLEVUE, Wash. /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Gun owners responding to an online presidential preference poll conducted by the KeepAndBearArms.com website show an overwhelming preference for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump over prospective Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms reported today.

During the first week of polling, the lopsided response shows gun owners by a margin of almost 28-to-1 say they should vote for Trump (86.4%) rather than Clinton (3.1%). Meanwhile 10.5% of poll respondents think gun owners should vote for “another” candidate, but did not specifically say who. The survey will continue at the KeepAndBearArms.com website, which is jointly owned by CCRKBA and the Second Amendment Foundation.

Voting is continuing at KeepAndBearArms.com.

“The most important conclusion to be drawn from the poll results so far,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “is that America’s gun owners understand the critical nature of this election and what is at stake if Clinton gains the presidency. She would be making cabinet appointments and nominating judges and Supreme Court justices, and there is every indication that none of her appointments would be friendly to the Second Amendment.”

Clinton was caught on audio at a private gathering last fall, stating that in her opinion “the Supreme Court was wrong on the Second Amendment.” She further stated that she would “make that case” every chance she gets.

“Instead of just making that case,” Gottlieb observed, “a ‘President Hillary Clinton‘ would be able to make appointments to the Supreme Court that could undo the progress we’ve made over the past eight years. Since the 2008 Heller ruling, and the 2010 McDonald decision, we have been fighting unjust and unconstitutional gun laws across the country. From the first-week poll results, it appears gun owners realize that the Second Amendment is on the ballot in November.

“We recognize that many people are not sure about Trump,” he noted, “but they appear to be absolutely certain about Clinton, and in a very negative way. The poll results show how important it will be for every gun owner to be a registered voter this fall, and to cast a ballot in the Nov. 8 general election.”

ABOUT THE CITIZENS COMMITTEE FOR THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.ccrkba.org) is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

Founder of ‘Mayors Against Antisemitism’ fails to support Family Victimized by Antisemitic Retaliation

Newton, MA – The parent of a student subject to illegal, antisemitic retaliation by the Newton (MA) Public Schools (“NPS”) is speaking out about the rejection of her pleas to city officials and Jewish agencies to take action to keep her family safe.

According to state officials, the NPS and School Committee Chair Matthew Hills illegally retaliated against the student giving by a confidential letter from her student record to a newspaper and blog, which published confidential information from the letter as well as false and defamatory claims against the child’s parent.

The retaliation took place after biased material was removed at the parent’s instigation and two days after full-page advertisements criticizing the NPS, Superintendent David Fleishman, and Hills for allowing anti-Israel texts were published in Boston newspapers.

The newspaper Newton Tab and blog village14 both published the confidential information. Village14 also published student’s name and address. Both falsely claimed that the parent belonged to the organization that published the advertisements, Americans for Peace and Tolerance (“APT”), which has been described as “incredibly racist and unfair” by U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz, and as ‘anti-Islam’.

Both the parent and the organization that published the ads say she was not involved with either the organization or the ads. The parent has asked that her name be kept confidential.

The student’s family had been threatened by an anti-Israel activist and told by police not to allow their personal information to be published. The publication of their child’s name and address directly countered police advice and placed their children at risk.

Both the Tab and village14 refused to remove the confidential information even after the ruling that it was illegally obtained. Newton officials refused to help, even though the city was responsible for illegally transmitting the confidential letter for publication.

Neither Hills nor anyone else has been sanctioned for the illegal acts.

Retaliation by school officials has been an ongoing concern in Newton. Parents have spoken at School Committee meetings and read a statement about the fear of retaliation at a ‘community discussion’ about racism in city schools.

The Anti-Defamation League (“ADL”) rejected requests for assistance, including a request that the agency acknowledge that retaliating against a Jewish child for her parent’s objection to anti-Israel material constitutes antisemitism.

The ADL’s advice to the family was to ‘find a lawyer’. The family says that filing suit against the media and/or the city to remove the confidential information could cost up to $100,000.00 or more, which they do not have.

They would like the ADL or another agency to help them find an attorney who will take the matter on a contingency fee, deferred payment, or reduced fee basis.

The family has applied for assistance to over twenty Jewish and civil rights organizations and contacted over fifty attorneys without success.

The ADL and other Boston area Jewish agencies have consistently denied that any anti-Israel material exists in Newton schools, even though reputable organizations including the Committee on Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (“CAMERA”) and Verity Educate have issued reports showing that such material is assigned to students as ‘fact’.

Other Boston area Jewish communal agencies have followed suit.

Neither the School Committee nor Newton Mayor Setti Warren have responded to the family’s concerns.

Warren has been lauded by the American Jewish Committee (“AJC”) for his participation in their “Mayors Against Antisemitism” campaign. An AJC press release states that Warren “conceived the initiative”.

“The U.S. Jewish community is the wealthiest in the world”, said the parent. “Why is it turning its back on a Jewish child harmed by illegal and dangerous retaliation from people who are supposed to be keeping her safe?”

Put the Wall in the Platform by Phyllis Schlafly

The promise to build a wall along America’s southern border with Mexico has carried Donald Trump to his remarkable victory in the Republican primaries for president. Now it’s time to put that promise into the official Republican Party Platform.

Many would be surprised to learn that a border security fence or wall was not already in the Republican platform. After all, President George W. Bush signed the Secure Fence Act which Congress passed in 2006 with the support of many Democrats including then-Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

In the 10 years since Bush signed that law in a staged photo-op, the government has actually built only 36 miles of secure double fencing instead of the 700 miles authorized by that bipartisan, high-profile law. As a result, our southern border is penetrated daily by wave after wave of drug smuggling, human trafficking, people with incurable or infectious diseases such as the Zika virus, and even Muslims and Chinese people who somehow made their way to Mexico.

Business lobbyists and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who hold too much influence in the Republican party, oppose a wall because it would interfere with their continued exploitation of cheap foreign labor at the expense of American workers. In addition to tolerating the flow of illegal labor, the Chamber wants to expand every category of visas for foreign workers, both skilled and unskilled.

According to Politico, Republican power brokers have convened “as many as 10 closed-door huddles with business lobbyists to discuss the party’s platform.” Attendees were warned not to discuss details with the press, but you can bet that building a wall was not on their agenda.

The big-business lobbyists also expressed alarm at Trump’s promise to “discourage companies from moving jobs outside the United States.” One participant said his colleagues are “pretty much aghast” at Trump’s proposals to protect Americans against rampant cheating by our so-called “trading partners.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan, meanwhile, has been developing his own agenda for Republicans in an effort to compete with Trump’s. Under the slogan “A Better Way,” Ryan’s proposals include old chestnuts like cutting taxes, entitlements and regulations, but nothing about limiting immigration or the hemorrhage of jobs to foreign countries.

The Ryan agenda is basically the same as what Jeb Bush and 15 other failed presidential candidates campaigned on, but those ideas obviously didn’t sell to the Republican electorate. The voters have spoken, and the future of the Republican Party starts with a wall along our southern border.

Even some members of the Republican National Committee are resisting the wall as a political statement that belongs in the party platform. One RNC member called the wall “a symbolic thing” rather than “a physical thing,” while another member said the border wall is not to be taken “literally” because “it is a metaphor.”

The two RNC members are right that the border wall would be a powerful symbol, but only if and when it is actually built. Once completed, the wall on our southern border would stand as a “metaphor” for the fact that coming to America requires the invitation and permission of the American citizens who are already here.

The 2012 platform has many good provisions, including opposition to “any form of amnesty” and support for states using their authority to enforce federal immigration laws. But building a wall is now the foundation of Republican immigration policy – and yes, Mexico will pay for the wall.

Yet the Chamber of Commerce calls it a “myth” that “building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and deporting all undocumented immigrants from the United States, would enhance national security.” The Chamber’s analysis asserts that a border security wall would cost between $15 and $25 billion to build, and not even $1 billion to maintain, but those are small sums compared to the real costs of illegal immigration.

The federal, state, and local costs of criminal justice to process and incarcerate criminal aliens is at least $15 billion a year, not to mention the harm caused by those crimes, such as horrific crashes that have occurred when smugglers drive the wrong way on freeways at night with their headlights turned off. Even deportation is not as expensive as opponents of border security pretend.

A wall along the border would reduce illegal immigration and cause real wages to increase for average American workers for the first time in more than a decade. That may not be something the U.S. Chamber of Commerce wants for big business, but it’s something that would attract American workers to vote Republican.

New Super PAC Championing Trump’s Truth-Telling about ‘La Raza’ linked Judge

BETHESDA, Md. /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As final GOP primary votes are cast in states from California to New Jersey, Law Professor Victor Williams issues a fulsome and unreserved endorsement of Donald Trump.

Professor Williams began his June 7 endorsement by championing Trump’s decision to expose the bias and conflict of interest demonstrated by federal judge Gonzalo Curiel.  Williams states:  “Donald Trump has again dared to speak truth to power.”

Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has also supported Trump’s right to challenge the judge’s bias.  Gonzales reminds that a judge is ethically required not only to avoid conflicts but also to void even the appearance of impropriety.

Judge Curiel is a Member of the Leftist San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association. (La Raza is Translated and Politically Promoted as “the Race.”)

Judge Curiel is a longtime member/leader of the pro-illegal immigration group — San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association. The direct translation and self-promoted political meaning of La Raza by such groups is “the Race.”

(Since its founding, the leftist San Diego lawyers’ group has divisively self-branded as La Raza – “the Race.”)

The San Diego La Raza lawyers’ group claims as an affiliate the even more radical National Council of La Raza.  And the national La Raza umbrella organization is virulently anti-Trump.  La Raza groups nationwide are in obdurate opposition to Trump’s pledge to secure the nation’s southern border.

Victor Williams argues that in the Trump University class-action lawsuit, Judge Curiel has consistently demonstrated a prejudice against Trump.  The judge’s latest ruling — effectuating a document dump to the media while noting Trump’s public positions — was obviously orchestrated to harm Trump’s campaign.

Even Judge Curiel soon acknowledged that he had gone too far this time.

Donald Trump – the non-politician — dared to connect the dots to point out that the judge was being unfair.  Professor Williams is adamant that the “La Raza” judge should be recused.

The double-dealing media and GOP political elites are (once again) apoplectic by such Trump truth-telling.

An Early Trump Supporter Became the Last Trump Competitor Standing; Professor Williams Now Goes All-In for Trump

Victor Williams is the Washington, D.C law professor who launched a spring 2016  “write-in” campaign for the GOP nomination in several late primary states.

As the media widely reported, Williams’ purpose in the effort was to establish “competitor candidate” legal standing to challenge the Canadian-born Ted Cruz’s ballot eligibility in court.

(As the CPI/Daily Beast recently profiled, Williams finally left the Democratic Party after its shameful Irancapitulation.  Williams became a Trump supporter in December 2015.)

Even after Cruz “suspended,” the law professor remained a formal candidate so as to play-out the resulting litigation.  Williams v. Cruz is now before a New Jersey appellate court to resolve the “natural born Citizen” controversy.

With the primaries over, Williams gladly ends his “write-in” campaign.

A “Micro” Pro-Trump Super PAC:  Williams’ Next Project

Victor Williams will soon launch his next disruptive project to support Trump.  Professor Williams plans a “micro-focused, pro-Trump Super PAC.”

Williams’ presidential campaign garnered substantial free media exposure from the left and right with ultra-minimal expenditures.  Not crossing the Federal Election Commission’s $5000 spent/raised filing threshold, Williams was not even required to make the initial FEC candidate filing.

With a $7.35 average individual contribution, Williams even beat Bernie Sander’s historically low individual donation-average.

However election law will allow Professor Williams’ independent, pro-Trump Super PAC unlimited contributions and expenditures (although with detailed FEC reporting).

Williams will raise and spend heavily for the campaign against Hillary Clinton – but he pledges continued cost effectiveness for this Super PAC. It is the Trump/Sanders 2016-campaign-frugality model.

The Brainwashing and Brainwashed Media and its End Results

By Wallace Bruschweiler and William Palumbo –

Is the American population at large capable of independent thought anymore?  With politics going the way they are today, it’s a question worth asking.

As the 2016 election season progresses, it becomes more and more apparent on a daily basis that a vast majority of Americans on both the left and the right require their news to be ruminated, masticated, hashed and rehashed prior to consumption.  Instead of using their brains to consume and synthesize facts concerning their country’s politics and politicians, Americans – more often than not – have consigned themselves to a state of cerebral laziness.

For such people, what the news says is the truth, period.  Should you be mentally engaged reading this right now, “sheep” may come to mind.

Let’s take, for example, the latest kerfuffle involving Donald Trump and a certain judge.  If you were to gauge public opinion by what you see and hear on the news networks, you would conclude that Donald Trump has been outed as a racist after criticizing the judge, Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over the Trump University case.

Yet according to the judge’s own CV, Curiel is affiliated with the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA).  In July 2015, this organization issued a press release boasting of its intentions to target ultimately Trump’s business interests.

The judge’s flagrant inability to rule impartially is even acknowledged by former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who wrote in defense of Trump:  “These circumstances, while not necessarily conclusive, at least raise a legitimate question to be considered.”

If you ever find yourself wondering why your friends, family, colleagues or peers cannot digest a basic factual political truth despite being otherwise intelligent, consider this: intelligence has little chance in overpowering regular and systematic brainwashing.

On the right, conservative pundits in the media have conditioned millions of loyal listeners and viewers to hang on and eat their every word.  Their daily appearances amount to a priestly sermon for far too many conservatives, and it is absorbed, sans critique, as Gospel.  Should the fickle media gods decide to turn on an issue or individual, however threadbare their reasoning, they surely bring the majority of their jelly-headed listeners.

On the left, the mainstream media has conditioned millions to selectively disregard inconvenient episodes (i.e. Benghazi, State Dept. emails, etc.).  This intellectually dishonest environment creates lopsided narratives: e.g., despite Hillary (and Bill) Clinton’s seemingly endless scandals, a few malcontents who attended Trump University overshadow Benghazi, the Arab Spring, the Clinton Foundation, Bill’s philandering, mysterious deaths, and decades of ongoing lies to the American public.

What happens when a country’s citizens lose their ability to think for themselves?  The media and political class are applying the methods used successfully in the past by Communist regimes and Goebbels; they mold and shape minds to accept things uncritically and unconditionally.  What is presented today as supposedly newsworthy are politically pre-selected events.  This creates the inevitable end result of cerebral torpor and mass-media conditioning.

Come November 8, 2016, we unfortunately will see if the brainwashing was too widespread and too deep to be overcome.  Amen.

VIDEO: Hispanic Republican FL State Senator attacks Trump’s rhetoric calls him a ‘racist’

Florida State Senator Rene Garcia (R-District 38), Chairman of Board of Hispanic Caucus Chairs (BHCC), is leading the attack against Donald Trump, who has questioned the impartiality of Judge Gonzalo Curiel.

Perhaps it is time to connect-the-dots on this effort to characterize Donald Trump as a racist. In Saul Alinsky’s book Rules for Radicals, RULE 5 states: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

Why discredit Donald Trump? Answer: Because Trump’s rhetoric resonates with voters.

Rene Garcia, Florida State Senator (R) and Chair, Board of Hispanic Caucus Chairs

The BHCC in a press release warns:

This toxic rhetoric is neither productive nor beneficial to the national election-year dialogue, and unjustifiably serve to use Mr. Trump’s newly found political influence to put unwarranted pressure on a member of the federal judiciary to influence the outcome of a private civil matter.  Additionally, this nation was built on the contributions and advancements of many diverse cultures and ethnicities, to forget this is to forget what makes our nation exceptional. We compel Mr. Trump to not forget this significant part of our history, and we encourage him to retract his statements.

If you go to the Board of Hispanic Caucus Chairs website you will find the profile of Chairman (Senator) Rene Garcia with a quick link to the National Council of La Raza.

A Discover the Networks profile on La Raza (The Race) states:

Behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.

Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West.

One of America’s greatest strengths has always been taking in immigrants from cultures around the world, and assimilating them into our country as Americans. By being citizens of the U.S. we are Americans first, and only, in our national loyalties.

This is totally opposed by MEChA for the hordes of illegal immigrants pouring across our borders, to whom they say:

“Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we…should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot…Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas … It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny.” (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3, 2006)

MEChA isn’t at all shy about their goals, or their views of other races. Their founding principles are contained in these words in “El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan” (The Spiritual Plan for Aztlan):

“In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. … Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. … We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada.”

That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says: “For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.”

Dennis Michael Lynch links Judge Curiel to La Raza (Spanish for “The Race”) in the below video:

Jim Kouri in an article titled Trump’s Judge Gonzalo Curiel is a suspected lawbreaker reports:

What they [the media] failed to cover is the fact Curiel broke the very laws he swore to uphold and enforce. By this own admission, Judge Curiel helped an illegal alien get a scholarship to an American university, thereby aiding and abetting a lawbreaker.

Judge Curiel has been praised for such alleged illegal actions that were used by the Bush administration to arrest and incarcerate U.S. businessmen who were frequently targeted by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement directorate of the Homeland Security Department.

In Sufficient evidence exists to require Judge Curiel to recuse himself from any litigation involving Trump Sierra Rayne states:

The most important argument in favor of forcing U.S. district judge Gonzalo Curiel to recuse himself from the Trump University lawsuits was published today by the Conservative Treehouse.

The Treehouse linked to a copy of Judge Curiel’s “United States Senate: Committee on the Judiciary – Questionnaire for Judicial Nominees” in which, on page four of his response, Judge Curiel states that he is a “Life-time Member” of the “Hispanic National Bar Association [HNBA].”

The HNBA made public a press release in July 2015 that called for the following actions against Donald Trump and his enterprises:

“The HNBA calls for a boycott of all of Trump business ventures, including golf courses, hotels, and restaurants. We salute NBC/Universal, Univision and Macy’s for ending their association with Trump, and we join them in standing up against bigotry and racist rhetoric. Other businesses and corporations should follow the lead of NBC/Universal, Univision and Macy’s and take similar actions against Donald Trump’s business interests.”

[ … ]

By being a lifetime member of the HNBA, and via the HNBA’s press release making critical statements specifically against Trump while also calling for a general boycott of Trump’s businesses, there are reasonable concerns that Judge Curiel is acting as “a judge in his own cause” (i.e., the “cause” of harming Trump’s business interests).  At the very least, Judge Curiel’s “conduct or behaviour may give rise to a suspicion that he is not impartial … because of his friendship with a party” such as the HNBA, which has called for open economic warfare against Trump.

Trump’s ‘rhetoric resonates’ with Democrats, Independents and Republicans alike

SHELTON, Conn. /PRNewswire/ — Since announcing his run for president last June, Donald J. Trump’s public remarks have had the world talking. In a recent online study of 1,500 voters, SSI, the global leader in research data collection, measured respondent agreement and disagreement with 200 policy statements made by Trump. Several of his statements received positive responses from voters across the political spectrum.

After reading each statement, respondents indicated whether it increased, decreased or had no impact on their likelihood to vote for Trump. Respondents selected “has no impact” 49 percent of the time, “increases” 29 percent of the time and “decreases” their likelihood of voting for Trump 22 percent of the time.

“Although Trump is often regarded as a polarizing figure, our study shows that the sentiment and substance of many of his statements do resonate with most Americans,” said Paul Johnson, director of analytics, SSI. “Voters are aware of what Trump has said and they like many elements. In fact, Trump’s rhetoric persuades more swing voters than it pushes away.”

In particular, several of Trump’s populist statements scored high across all party affiliations. Republicans, Democrats and Independents in the study were unanimous in their positive response to the following: “We need to once again have a government that is of the people, for the people and by the people.” Respondents from every party also reacted positively to this statement: “The only special interest not being served by our government is the American people.”

Trump’s Top Ranking Statements — All Parties

1. Our country needs a truly great leader, and we need a truly great leader now.

2. One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace. Good people don’t go into government.

3. We need to once again have a government that is of the people, for the people and by the people.

4. I want to save Medicare and Social Security.

5. Too few Americans are working, too many jobs have been shipped overseas and too many middle class families cannot make ends meet.

Many of Trump’s statements had a strong impact on Independent voters. “While only a minority of people, less than five percent, switched their preferred candidate after reading the Trump statements, 56 percent of them were Independents,” said Johnson. “Eighteen percent of these switchers went away from Trump, but 30 percent switched to Trump, giving him a net positive take among undecided voters.”

Two policy themes that resonated strongly with both Independents and Republicans were domestic job protection and budget discipline. However, Independents reacted negatively to statements around waterboarding and global warming denial.

2. One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace. Good people don’t go into government.

3. We need to once again have a government that is of the people, for the people and by the people.

4. If you tax something you get less of it. It’s as simple as that. The more you tax work, the less people are willing to work. The more you tax investments, the fewer investments you’ll get. This isn’t rocket science.

5. We’ve got to bring on the competition. Education reformers call this school choice, charter schools, vouchers, even opportunity scholarships. I call it competition—the American way.

The remaining top statements vary significantly by Republican versus Democratic audiences. Respondents who identify themselves as Republicans agree most with statements emphasizing the importance of building a wall along the Mexico border, building up the military and imposing budget discipline.

Those who identify as Democrats agree most with statements promoting universal healthcare, unions, Medicare, Social Security, Planned Parenthood and LGBT rights. In several cases, top statements for Republicans appeared as lowest ranking statements for Democrats and vice versa.

About the Study

SSI tested 200 statements made by Trump (regarding a variety of policy topics and positions). The study measured respondent agreement and disagreement with between 30 to 200 different policy statements. All respondents were exposed to at least 30 statements, with some respondents opting into additional rounds of exposure to more statements.

Initially, respondents were not aware that the statements had been made by Trump. Following statement exposure, respondents were informed that all statements were, in fact, from Trump. Respondents were asked both before and after statement testing who was their preferred candidate. Switchers were those who were not consistent pre- and post-statement attribution.
