The dawn of the ‘M-word’

Yes, it would be peachy if everyone could “just get along.” As the product of a mixed-race marriage who was raised to discern character rather than appearance or creed, I consider myself to be quite tolerant, despite recent accusations to the contrary. The reality of coexistence, however, remains the same as it has been since human beings lived in caves. It’s a coin toss as to whether that tribe on the other side of the river – no different than their neighbors on this side – will determine to coexist, or to attempt to dominate, enslave, or even kill the ones over here.

hiraba1Nations – unless they have lost their collective mind – always act in their own self-interest. I am not here to act as an apologist for American foreign policy; as a society directed by human beings, we have probably made as many mistakes in our foreign policy as we have in our domestic policy. Suffice it to say that the United States of America has done far more to contribute to the liberty and tranquility of other nations than we have to harm them, especially when compared to history and our contemporaries of equivalent power and influence. Indictments to the contrary are simply well-crafted propaganda I have personally resolved not to dignify with argument any longer.

Since the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, several contentious issues have concurrently come to the fore. Immigration, national security and the Second Amendment all came into play with regard to the bombing, manhunt and standoffs that ultimately ended with one bomber dead and one in custody. The Obama administration’s alleged transparency is also a factor, as they continue to obstruct justice and obfuscate pertaining to the narrative.

The Audacity of Narcissism

obama_narcissist2November 5, 2009 – Army psychiatrist Nidal Malik Hasan shouts “Allahu Akbar!” and opens fire at the Fort Hood army base in Texas. Thirteen are killed and twenty-nine injured (Later it is discovered that Hasan was mentored by Anwar al-Awlaki, the Yemeni-American al-Qaeda cleric who is subsequently killed by an American drone attack in 2011).

December 4, 2009 – Sixteen-year old Saudi national Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi visits the White House with a contingent of Saudis and Muslim Brotherhood operatives. They spend the night reveling with President Obama, smoking a hookah (despite a smoking ban in the White House) and urinating on national treasures. In 2013, Al-Harbi is quickly deported amidst controversy after the Boston Marathon bombing. His connection to the White House and Obama remains unknown.

Well, of course I can’t prove all of it, but I sure would like to see how the last sentence plays out – because there is undeniably a connection.

Over the course of this week, we have observed the Obama administration desperately attempting to cover up its enabling of Islamic terror networks within the US. Of this, there is no doubt. There is no need for me to go into the minutiae vis-à-vis their rhetorical gymnastics concerning the history of the Tsarnaev brothers and their Boston mosque, or the activities of Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi; these have been comprehensively documented via reliable sources as the evidence has come to light.

When I first saw the photographs of Al-Harbi in the hospital, I wondered why someone who had just narrowly escaped perishing in a bomb blast would display that Cheshire Cat grin for photographers.

‘My country, always wrong’

I find it amazing what manages to pass for “white” in America when the political left wants it to. During the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers last week, the press made it painfully evident that they desperately hoped the perpetrators would wind up being conservative tea-party Christian Republicans, but at least white.

muslim-protest“Please don’t be a Muslim” even graced the title of one Washington Post article – but we’ll address that brand of insanity in a bit.

When the suspects were finally identified as Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the press immediately pronounced them “white.” A collective “A-HA!” of vindication rose on the airwaves and in cyberspace, as though all of America had somehow been certain that “brown people did it.”

Although the brothers Tsarnaev are technically “Caucasian” in the sense that their home country, Chechnya, lies in the North Caucasus mountains of Russia, they aren’t what has been considered “white” in the Western world for centuries. Generally speaking, people who fall into that category are those descended from forebears in Northern and Western Europe, Scandinavia and the British Isles, inasmuch as Southern Europeans, some Eastern Europeans, Eurasians and even the Irish have historically suffered discrimination under the former in the West.

Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are Eurasian. Well, Tamerlan was Eurasian; his surviving brother Dzhokhar remains so.

USA Today blockbuster article exposes Boston area radical mosques

boston mosque1Via Act For America and USA Today

Amid all the typical politically correct news stories and ruminations by pundits about the Boston Marathon terrorist attack, USA Today ran an article this morning (highlights added) that exposes the radicalism prevalent in two Boston-area mosques and their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

When you read the story—and we urge you to do so—pay particular attention to how mosque leaders react.

BOSTON — The mosque attended by the two brothers accused in the Boston Marathon double bombing has been associated with other terrorism suspects, has invited radical speakers to a sister mosque in Boston and is affiliated with a Muslim group that critics say nurses grievances that can lead to extremism.

Several people who attended the Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge, Mass., have been investigated for Islamic terrorism, including a conviction of the mosque’s first president, Abdulrahman Alamoudi, in connection with an assassination plot against a Saudi prince.

Its sister mosque in Boston, known as the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, has invited guests who have defended terrorism suspects. A former trustee appears in a series of videos in which he advocates treating gays as criminals, says husbands should sometimes beat their wives and calls on Allah (God) to kill Zionists and Jews, according to Americans for Peace and Tolerance, an interfaith group that has investigated the mosques.

The head of the group is among critics who say the two mosques teach a brand of Islamic thought that encourages grievances against the West, distrust of law enforcement and opposition to Western forms of government, dress and social values.

“We don’t know where these boys were radicalized, but this mosque has a curriculum that radicalizes people. Other people have been radicalized there,” said the head of the group, Charles Jacobs.

Boston: Where it all began

If you’re familiar with the Revolutionary War (with the educational system these days, obviously some may not be), you know that Paul Revere’s legendary Midnight Ride was through the streets of Boston, heralding the start of the war.

It may be that Boston (via the tragedy of April 15) will herald the re-fortification of the Republic, or the Last Rites of this great nation.

paulrevere1As some media outlets are reporting, right now there are crimes being committed by the Obama administration attendant to the investigation into the bombings. Most prominently Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, and a stellar column by Doug Hagmann in Canada Free Press detail not only the machinations surrounding the administration’s obfuscation and obstruction of justice, but the government’s treasonous dealings over several administrations. These are proof positive that the United States of America is being sold out by global socialist elites in both parties, and should clarify a good many baffling policies that have been implemented over the years.

Of course, I’ve been saying for a long time that Barack Obama’s goal has been to literally destroy this nation, and through alliances with the Muslim Brotherhood and other foreign agencies, unconstitutional legislation, countless Executive Orders, and back door dealings, he has brought us close to the point of no return.

But it wasn’t his plan; he was chosen to catalyze a lot of what had been planned for decades, for reasons that should be evident by now.
