Delusional: Obama Lectures ISIS on True Islam

By: Brent Parrish

Don’t expect the president to ever change his tune regarding the true nature of Islam. He’s painted himself in a corner on this one, considering his prior comments embracing Islam as a so-called “religion of peace.” It appears to me as if Obama is trying to portray himself as an ominist—a believer in all religions.

When Barack Obama claims no religion would sanction the killing of innocents, it makes me wonder what Koran he’s been reading. And I know for a fact that Barack Hussein Obama read the Koran, for he attended madrasah in Indonesia, and has demonstrated an ability to recite Koranic verses in perfect Arabic.

It is indicative of a real problem I see from many Western leaders who appear unwilling or incapable of understanding the true goals and aims of Islam—which is the total conquest and domination of the entire world.

Either the POTUS is practicing his own form of taqiyya and tawriya, or he is woefully ill-informed about Islamic doctrine and did not understand the true meaning of the Arabic verses he learned to recite—which is not altogether uncommon for non-Arabic speakers who study at madrasah’s around the world. Traditional Arabic is the official language of the Koran. And many Muslim scholars claim that one cannot truly understand the Koran without understanding the traditional Arabic language.

Even more maddening, in my opinion, is the all too common tendency for many Western leaders, including Barack Obama, to appease and embrace Islam—as if it were merely just another religious belief that provides an alternate path to G-d.

If only it were true.

Islam is no mere religion; it is an entire civilization—a theo-political movement bent on total conquest over the kuffar (unbelievers), where mosque and state are one and the same.

Islam means submission. In a truly Islamic society, one either submits to Islam, or they are slaughtered. According to the Koran, Christians and Jews (People of the Book) can live within an Islamic society, but they are forced to pay the jizyah poll tax, and are treated as third-class citizens.

But, in reality, and in practice, Christians and Jews are often killed in the Islamic world. Or, their lives become so unbearable living under Islamic rule they often times simply submit and convert to Islam. If not, their only other choices are to fight, flee or die.

For our president to claim no religion sanctions the killing of innocents is to deny what the strict adherents of Islam practice and sincerely believe—meaning: it is a Muslim’s obligation and duty to slaughter the unbelievers, or support those who do. Allah demands it, according to the Koran, the Sira and the Hadiths.

But don’t just take my word for it. Lately, the butchers and mass-murderers of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) have been posting horrifically violent images of their crimes against humanity. They are proud of their slaughter, and are wont to record them for the entire world to see. Without a doubt it is designed to strike terror and fear into their enemies—meaning: anybody who does not embrace and submit to Islam. Often times they will attach a Koranic verse with their posts and tweets.

Below is one such example of a Koranic verse that was attached to an ISIS tweet posted to Twitter—which also included some incredibly violent and bloody images of their “slaughtered” victims (not included here):

sahlih-quote

Not too long ago, an ex-Muslim pointed me to a couple of verses from the Koran that he claimed I should use to query anyone who claims they are a so-called “moderate” Muslim. He made it clear to me, in no uncertain terms, that a Muslim cannot be a true Muslim unless they accept and believe everything that is written in the Koran, for it is the “Holy Word of Allah—perfect in every way”:

koran-fight-them

The butchers and mass-murders who comprise Islamic terror groups (referred to as “militants,” “freedom fighters” and “rebels” by Western press sources) are often times labeled Islamists or Islamic extremists by Western intellectuals. The so-called Islamists believe the words of the Prophet must be put into practice, for they are “perfect in every way.”

A more accurate term for Islamic terrorists, in my opinion, would be Muslim fundamentalists. They are the ones who truly believe they are living out the purest form of Islam by putting the words of the Prophet into daily practice. And the greatest thing a true Muslim can do is die in jihad fighting against the infidel for the cause of Allah.

Yes, Barack Obama, there is a so-called faith that not only sanctions the killing of innocents but literally revels in doing it. But, I think he already knows that.

Heh, And I'm just getting started!

Michael Brown, Police Brutality, Racism and the First Amendment

By: Brent Parrish

One of the things I’ve noticed these days is the inability for many people to separate issues, and instead piggyback a number of other issues on top of the issue at hand. Let’s just use the case of the Ferguson riots and the death of Michael Brown as an example.

Now, in case you’ve been living in a cave lately—which doesn’t sound like a bad idea these days—an 18-year-old black male was shot dead by police in Ferguson, Missouri, under circumstances that are not altogether clear or certain, at this point.

So, let’s just rehash a bit on the Michael Brown case, as it stands now.

On August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, an 18-year-old black male, Michael Brown, was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department.

Shortly before the shooting, Michael Brown was suspected of committing a strong-arm robbery at a local convenience story, roughing up the store’s owner in the process, then brazenly walking out with approximately $50 worth of Swisher Sweets cigars.

Michael Brown was then stopped by police as he was walking in the street. And this is the point where alleged eyewitness accounts of what actually occurred between “Big Mike” and the officer in question diverge.

The facts surrounding the use of lethal force by Ferguson police have devolved into a case of “he said, he said, she said.” Some eyewitnesses claim Michael Brown was running from the police with his hands in the air shouting, “Don’t shoot!” According to some of these same alleged witnesses, Officer Darren Wilson then ruthlessly and mercilessly executed Darren Wilson in the street, following a confrontation between Brown and another individual, then hovered over Brown’s lifeless body like a cold-blood killer gloating over his dead prey. Obviously, those are some very serious allegations, if proven true.

But there are other accounts that are completely inconsistent with the previous accounts. There are reports Michael Brown reportedly started an altercation with Officer Wilson. It is alleged Brown slammed the door back on the cop after he was attempting to exit the vehicle, then hit the Darren Wilson in the face, and even tried to take his gun. Brown then ran away, according to the same sources.

When Officer Wilson ordered the “gentle giant” to stop, he purportedly turned around and bum-rushed the officer. As he rushed toward him, according to reports, this is when Officer Darren Wilson shot Brown six times.

The initial autopsy reports appear to show Michael Brown was shot from the front, not in the back—as some are claiming. Furthermore, an alleged X-Ray of Darren Wilson originally posted at Gateway Pundit appears to show the officer suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket” during the reported altercation with Michael Brown.

X-Ray

Christine Byers, a crime reporter working for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, tweeted on Monday that more than a dozen witnesses have corroborated the police’s version of events in the Michael Brown shooting. Not surprisingly, those who are inclined to believe “white racists pigs executed Michael Brown” are having none of it.

Christine-Byers-Ferguson-Quote

The real issue is, just what happened between Officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown that led to Brown’s death? And this is where another issue gets piggybacked on the issue at hand–namely, the issue of “police brutality.” Without having all the facts, before any results of a vigorous investigation have been released, almost instantly, the police officer involved is being accused of “executing” Michael Brown.

And it is at this point where another issue is piggybacked on top of “police brutality.” And that would be the issue of “racism.” Not only did Officer Darren Wilson supposedly “execute” Michael Brown without mercy, he allegedly did it because it was racially motivated, sans any real facts to support this extremely incendiary accusation.

Naturally, with a state-run press willing to indulge in the racist narrative, allowing racism to be lumped in with the accusation of “police brutality,” without any balanced coverage contrary, an already inflamed situation has been transformed into a cauldron of hate and rage focused and aimed mainly at Darren Wilson and the Ferguson Police Department–and law enforcement in general, i.e. the rule of law.

As a direct result of fanning and stoking the flames of racial division by the main-stream media and other “outside agitators,” the result has been 11 days of fires, looting, vandalism and attacks on police officers in Ferguson, Missouri. For the residents and businesses of Ferguson, life has turned into a living hell that appears to have no end.

looters-ferguson

But, as if piggybacking police brutality and racism on top of what really happened between the officer and Michael Brown isn’t enough, we now hear people claim their First Amendment rights are somehow being infringed because of the large police presence in Ferguson who are trying to prevent further looting, vandalism and violence.

Let’s be perfectly clear about just what is contained in the First Amendment (emphasis mine): “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The peaceful protesters in Ferguson are completely in their right to peaceably assemble and protest all they want. But the protesters and “outside agitators” who are engaging in riotous and criminal behavior are not participating in “peaceable assembly,” and that is not protected under the First Amendment–quite the opposite. In plain language, it is called “breaking the law.” And most American citizens understand breaking the law comes with certain consequences; otherwise, there would be no point in having laws.

What outrages me about this fiasco in Ferguson are all the “outside agitators” coming in to stoke and fan the flames of racial tension—like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, New Black Panther Party, Amnesty International USA, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, Tibetan Monks, Church of Scientology, Tauheed Youth Development Life, the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), the Organization for Black Struggle (OBS), the Moorish Science Temple, the Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression, the Nation of Islam – Mosque 28, the Universal African Peoples Organization (UAPO), the Socialist Workers Party, the Chicago-based Revolutionary Communist Party USA–even Holder’s DOJ! And most of them are there in Ferguson, Missouri, not to deescalate the situation and bring about racial harmony, mind you, but to further their own cynical social and political agendas and inflame an already volatile situation for their own selfish gain.

What really needs to be addressed, in my humble opinion, is all the bad behavior, whether its police or private citizens engaging in it. And let’s be clear here, no one group, either black or white, has a monopoly on bad behavior or hatred. That’s something that crosses all social, economic, cultural, ethnic and racial lines. I don’t think I need to point that out–should be a no-brainer.

#Ferguson: Ochlocracy (Mob Rule) in Action

By: Brent Parrish

mobocracy

mob-at-jay-nixon-office-2

mob-at-jay-nixon-office

Our Founders called it “mobocracy.” And mobocracy is synonymous with democracy. But isn’t democracy synonymous with freedom? No! Not unless one defines “freedom” as mob rule.

It might surprise some to learn the United States is not a democracy. Article 4, Section 4, of the U.S. Constitution clearly states the United States “shall have a republican form of government.” Our form of government, as required by the Constitution, is a constitutional republic, not a pure democracy, despite what the so-called “constitutional scholar” who now occupies the Oval Office claims. (Barack Obama has stated in the past that the U.S. is the world’s oldest constitutional democracy, which is patently false.)

The Founders warned, from the very beginning, that pure democracy is one of the worst forms of government that exists. Pure democracy is simply the rule of the majority, i.e. mob rule. But a constitutional republic is based on the rule of law, which protects both the majority and the individual.

“Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half of the time.”

—E.B. White

The term “democracy” does not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution, or the Declaration of Independence, or in any State constitution.

Even in the Federalist Papers, “democracy” is rarely mentioned. But there are a few places in the Federalist Papers where democracy is discussed–specifically, in Federalist Papers #10, #14 and #48.

On democracy, from Federalist Paper #10, my emphasis:

… From this view of the subject it may be concluded that a pure democracy, by which I mean a society consisting of a small number of citizens, who assemble and administer the government in person, can admit of no cure for the mischiefs of faction. A common passion or interest will, in almost every case, be felt by a majority of the whole; a communication and concert result from the form of government itself; and there is nothing to check the inducements to sacrifice the weaker party or an obnoxious individual. Hence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths. Theoretic politicians, who have patronized this species of government, have erroneously supposed that by reducing mankind to a perfect equality in their political rights, they would, at the same time, be perfectly equalized and assimilated in their possessions, their opinions, and their passions.

A republic, by which I mean a government in which the scheme of representation takes place, opens a different prospect, and promises the cure for which we are seeking. Let us examine the points in which it varies from pure democracy, and we shall comprehend both the nature of the cure and the efficacy which it must derive from the Union.

The two great points of difference between a democracy and a republic are: first, the delegation of the government, in the latter, to a small number of citizens elected by the rest; secondly, the greater number of citizens, and greater sphere of country, over which the latter may be extended….

On democracy, from Federalist Paper #14:

… The error which limits republican government to a narrow district has been unfolded and refuted in preceding papers. I remark here only that it seems to owe its rise and prevalence chiefly to the confounding of a republic with a democracy, applying to the former reasonings drawn from the nature of the latter. The true distinction between these forms was also adverted to on a former occasion. It is, that in a democracy, the people meet and exercise the government in person; in a republic, they assemble and administer it by their representatives and agents. A democracy, consequently, will be confined to a small spot. A republic may be extended over a large region.

To this accidental source of the error may be added the artifice of some celebrated authors, whose writings have had a great share in forming the modern standard of political opinions. Being subjects either of an absolute or limited monarchy, they have endeavored to heighten the advantages, or palliate the evils of those forms, by placing in comparison the vices and defects of the republican, and by citing as specimens of the latter the turbulent democracies of ancient Greece and modern Italy. Under the confusion of names, it has been an easy task to transfer to a republic observations applicable to a democracy only; and among others, the observation that it can never be established but among a small number of people, living within a small compass of territory….

On democracy, from Federalist Paper #48:

In a democracy, where a multitude of people exercise in person the legislative functions, and are continually exposed, by their incapacity for regular deliberation and concerted measures, to the ambitious intrigues of their executive magistrates, tyranny may well be apprehended, on some favorable emergency, to start up in the same quarter. But in a representative republic, where the executive magistracy is carefully limited; both in the extent and the duration of its power; and where the legislative power is exercised by an assembly, which is inspired, by a supposed influence over the people, with an intrepid confidence in its own strength; which is sufficiently numerous to feel all the passions which actuate a multitude, yet not so numerous as to be incapable of pursuing the objects of its passions, by means which reason prescribes; it is against the enterprising ambition of this department that the people ought to indulge all their jealousy and exhaust all their precautions….

Still, many people nowadays believe democracy and republic are just interchangeable terms–meaning, they are one and the same. Well, that is just what the purveyors of democracy would like you to believe. Nothing makes the democracy enthusiast happier than to hear individuals on both sides of the political spectrum refer to our form of government as a democracy. And, quite frankly, it is quite dangerous; and one of the reasons, I believe, the United States has moved so far toward pure socialism.

Alexander-Trachtenberg-Quote-1944

Granted, the concept and influence of democracy has a long history in the history of American politics, stretching all the way back to the founding of the nation.

The modern Democratic Party was founded in 1828, and traces its origins back to the Democratic-Republican Party organized by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. According to WikiPedia: “The term Democratic-Republican Party is the name primarily used by political scientists for the Republican Party or the Jeffersonian Republicans.”

The first U.S. president who successfully ran as a Democrat was Andrew Jackson, who served from 1829 to 1837. The modern Democratic Party was formed in the 1930′s from factions of the Democratic-Republican Party.

The term democracy also came heavily into vogue during the Woodrow Wilson Administration, whose famous slogan “making the world safe for democracy” has become a mainstay in the American lexicon. Wilson served two terms from 1913 to 1921. It was around this time that democracy was heavily sold as being synonymous with republicanism and representative government … it has been sold as such ever since.

One constitution where “democracy” appears numerous times is the Soviet Constitution of 1977. Additionally, the term democracy is commonplace in the writings of countless Marxist writers—such as Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, Josef Stalin, Leon Trotsky, Antonio Gramsci, and many others. If you would like to confirm this for yourself, visit the Marxist archive at Marxists.org and enter the search term “democracy.”

Granted, Marxian socialists make a distinction between what they call bourgeois democracy versus proletarian democracy, i.e. social democracy. But “democracy is indispensable for socialism,” as Max Shachtman wrote in 1943 in a piece entitled “Trotsky on Democracy and Fascism” (New International, Vol.IX No.7 [Whole No.74], July 1943, pp.216-217).

Another example of the importance direct democracy plays in Marxian socialism appears in the Communist Party of Great Britain’s (CPGB) program from 1951 entitled “The British Road to Socialism.” Section V of the CPGB’s program is titled “People’s DemocracyThe Path to Socialism.”

Communism is brought about in stages, and it all starts with pure democracy. Vladimir Lenin once said, “The goal of socialism is communism.” But, as Ivor Thomas wrote in The Socialist Tragedy (1954), there really is very little difference between socialism and communism in practice, despite some of the objections by modern-day Marxist theoreticians to Thomas’ conclusion regarding the ultimate failure of socialism-communism. Pure democracy is a form of collectivism—it readily sacrifices individual rights to majority wishes (a.k.a. mobocracy).

At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Dr. Benjamin Franklin was queried  as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation by a woman who asked, “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” Dr. Franklin replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”
