Happy Veteran’s Day! Iran NOT Iraq Ready to “Re-Take” Fallujah
By WILLIAM MAYER
May 30, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – With Qasem Soleimani, the Iranian strong-man who leads the country’s Quds Force [who, by-the-way essentially runs the terror state’s foreign policy] on the ground and directing operations, if Fallujah is “liberated” from the hands of ISIS, it will certainly not be due to Iraq’s ISF, a cowardly, incompetent group of pretend soldiers whose specialty is fleeing the scene of battle while leaving behind millions of dollars worth of U.S. supplied state-of-the-art hardware.
Actually, Fallujah has already been liberated twice by U.S. forces [who fought as American soldiers always have, ferociously] during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Reclaiming Fallujah came at a terrible cost in American lives and suffering. All of which, of course has gone for naught as Obama abandoned Iraq immediately upon taking office, and therefore, the blood [at least 125 KIA and another 700 seriously wounded] is on Barry’s hands.
Now Iranian soldiers, their Shia militia allies, the Kurds and finally the ineffectual ISF are poised to “root out” the majority Sunni ISIS stronghold, one which we note maintains a great deal of antipathy towards the Abadi government, which itself is under siege by Muqtada al-Sadr, who is quite friendly with Iran.[Read More]
The Rednecks are Coming!
May 26, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – As these things go, the WashPost’s recent fright-wig piece [see, Kevin Sullivan, Patriots at the gate: The Americans preparing for battle against their own government , May 16, 2016, Washington Post] on the rise of MilitiaNation [our term, not theirs] starts out in a far more nuanced manner than is the norm with this kind of journo.
Actually, upon previewing the short video which prefaces the text, most citizens will find little that is alarming, excepting those numbered among the anti-Second crowd [and its DC/I95 based sycophants, some of whom feign “conservatism” – the “never Trump” asshats] to whom even the concept of forcibly resisting the establishment of a police state in any manner or form is heretical.
But not to worry, in the end the Post seldom disappoints…
1. That the piece is timed to create a diversion is irrefutable, what with Hillary facing more bad news from State’s IG re her email imbroglio, especially at a time when Trump is ascendant and going full nuke on the Clinton legacy of corruption including BJ’s rapacious nature.
2. It’s sudden appearance aside though, as a whole the text is a not particularly clever homage to a genre of cultural Marxist narratives which revolve around the tired caricature of a “movement” composed of ill-educated, out of work white Christian rednecks…with guns…lots and lots of guns…dedicated to some form of unprovoked, violent anti-government upheaval, all of which is then indelicately woven throughout the feature article’s 3,500 plus word expanse.
3. Front and center is the clear implication by the Post that the traditionalist/nativist sentiment is a threat to “civilization,” that term meaning the “wonders” which the left’s Gramscian social manipulation have foisted upon the West.[Read More]
Sanders Campaign Entirely Comfortable with Radical Muslim Activists
Op-Ed, courtesy of The Investigative Project on Terrorism
May 26, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – As Democratic Party leaders struggle to end their increasingly vitriolic presidential primary campaign, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is winning concessions in hopes he'll tone down the rhetoric.
Last month, we focused on Sanders' reliance on Linda Sarsour as a campaign surrogate. Sarsour also is a Palestinian activist with a history of vitriolic anti-Israel statements. "Nothing is creepier than Zionism," she wrote on Twitter about the idea that Jews can return to their ancestral homeland as a refuge from global anti-Semitism. To Sarsour, that ideal is racist.
Memorial Day weekend's approach brings to mind another prominent Sanders supporter, Zahra Billoo, who has repeatedly expressed discomfort with the holiday. "Many of our troops are engaged in terrorism," she wrote in June 2012.
Billoo heads the Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) San Francisco office. CAIR has roots in a Hamas-support network created by the Muslim Brotherhood in American,internal documents and eyewitness accounts show.[Read More]
“On Life Support” ISIS Takes Down EgyptAir Flight 804 on Flight From France?
May 19, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – You really have to hand it to the tenacity of ISIS…despite being battered, torn, profusely bleeding and hooked up to a ventilator it apparently has managed to add another 66 victims to its weekly mass casualty report which now stands at well over 200 [please see for example, “Moribund” ISIS Kills Over 150 In Baghdad, PipeLineNews.org LLC]
We of course are referring here to EgyptAir flight MS804 which crashed last night after having just departed Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris.[Read More]
“Moribund” ISIS Kills Over 150 In Baghdad
May 17, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – Though some continue to claim that the organization which brought Medieval torture into America’s living rooms over the last year is dying, over the last week alone, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s merry little band of jihadis has managed to kill over 150 people in various IED attacks in Baghdad, supposedly the most secure city in Iraq.
“Two car bombs and one suicide attack in Baghdad combined claimed more than 70 lives on Tuesday. A suicide bombing in a marketplace in the northern - mainly Shia - Baghdad district of Shaab reportedly killed 41 people and wounded more than 70, while a car bomb in nearby Sadr City left at least 30 dead and 17 wounded. To the south of the capital, a separate car bomb killed six, wounding around 20 more…This was the third time in several days that the Iraqi capital had been hit by deadly bombings. More than 150 people have died in the Iraqi capital in the past week.” [source, 'IS' attacks kill over 70 in Baghdad, Deutsche Welle]
As we noted in a recent report [William Mayer, In the Ongoing Muslim Religious War, the Health of ISIS is of Little Relative Concern, PipeLineNews.org]:
“[the] Islamic State advances in Homs Province against pro-regime forces. IS advanced into the Maher Gas Field in Eastern Homs Province on May 6 after seizing the nearby Sha’er Gas Field on May 5. IS also seized an abandoned artillery battalion and two checkpoints near the T4 (Tiyas) Airbase on May 10 following clashes with pro-regime forces. IS claimed to down a regime helicopter during the fighting [ Syria Sitrep May 6-13, Institute for the Study of War][Read More]
In the Ongoing Muslim Religious War, the Health of ISIS is of Little Relative Concern
By WILLIAM MAYER
May 16, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – Amidst the general disintegration of the West as a cultural and military powerhouse, a myth is being pushed by a group of national security professionals that ISIS will soon be history.
Some have gone so far as to predict the group will cease to exist past this year…but where are the fireworks?
These assertions draw upon the fact that ISIS has indeed suffered some losses across its caliphate, and it is from this that the DC centric “readers of goat entrails” have deduced that the world’s most well known and feared terror entity is on its last legs.
We say not so fast…because it seems undeniable that that there’s a self-serving element of this mindset, allowing one to [metaphorically] exhale briefly, concluding that things aren’t really as dire as they seem when it comes to Western relations with the Muslim world.
At its core, ISIS is a terrorist army, though one which has proven professional enough over the last year to have been able to take and hold large swaths of real estate in Iraq and Syria from where the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi then boldly proclaimed the Islamic State [Caliphate] of Iraq and Syria, ISIS.[Read More]
London's Muslim Mayor Khan Wastes No Time - Aligns with Clinton, Blasts Trump
May 11, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – As foreshadowed by our piece just a few days ago [please refer to [Londonistan Becomes a Reality: Brain Dead Brits Elect Muslim Extremist] the city of London's new Muslim mayor [yes folks, hate to tell you this but that DOES make a difference, a huge one] Sadiq Khan is already pushing political Islam, injecting himself into the American presidential race, siding of course with the Islamist friendly, Mrs. Clinton…the “Butcher of Benghazi" - playing the phony Muslim scam of victimology.
“Mr. Khan made no secret of his support for Mrs. Clinton and expressed confidence that she would ‘trounce’ Mr. Trump. ‘As the father of two daughters,” he said, “I couldn’t imagine a better role model for them than a woman president of the United States.’” [source, Steven Erlanger and Stephen Cast, Donald Trump Is ‘Ignorant About Islam,’ London’s Muslim Mayor Says , NY Times]
According to the Jewish online news source, Tablet, Khan’s Labour Party, already under siege due to its long-time anti-Semitic cant, is actually led by an anti-Semite, Jeremy Corbyn.
Portrait of a Despotic Islamo-Fascist: Turkish President Erdoğan
By EMERSON VERMAAT
May 9, 2016 – Amersfoort, NL – PipeLineNews.org - It is not very well known but Adolf Hitler and some other high ranking Nazis (notably Heinrich Himmler, Alfred Rosenberg and Joseph Goebbels) preferred Islam to Christianity. It was on March 31, 1942, that Hitler said, in the presence of Nazi party secretary Martin Bormann:
“On the political and sentimental level, there’s no obstacle to an alliance between Turkey and the (German) Reich. By reason of her attachment to Islam, Turkey has a completely clear-cut religious policy. The same is not true of Bulgaria, which since it practices the Greek Orthodox religion, finds in it new reasons to feel friendly towards Russia.”
Hitler strongly admired Turkey and even preferred the Turks to his formal ally, the Slavonic Bulgarians. This is why he appointed the seasoned German politician Franz von Papen, a former German chancellor, as his ambassador to Turkey. Just a few days before the German invasion of the Soviet Union, a German-Turkish Non-Aggression Pact was signed in the Turkish capital of Ankara. And when the Nazis attacked Russia on June 22, 1941, the then Turkish President Ismet Inönü was thrilled. Later that year, Turkish officers were sent to the German-Russian front to witness what was happening there. (They did not participate in the fighting, though, because Turkey was formally a neutral power.) Turkey declared war on Germany just a few months before the German army capilated. Otherwise, Turkey would have been prevented from joining the United Nations as a member.
Recep Tayyib Erdoğan of the Islamist “Justice and Development Party” (AKP) is now President of Turkey. He is an admirer of the anti-Semitic Muslim Brotherhood and a staunch supporter of Hamas, a terrorist organization. He seeks a new Turkish sultanate, that means the restoration of the former Ottoman Empire. “Turkish presidents have limited authority, but Erdoğan is seeking to change the constitution and give himself sweeping powers,” says Stephen Kinzer (America Al-Jazeera opinions). Kinzer, a visiting scholar at the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University, rightly refers to Erdoğan as “the sultan-in-waiting.”
Erdoğan hates secular Turks, the Jews and the Kurds. It was between 1924 and 1938 that Kemal Atatürk, the founder of modern Turkey, made an attempt to modernize Turkey by abolishing the veil for women and introducing a constitution where the words Islam and Allah (God) were totally absent. But Atatürk failed, eventually. The Turkish countryside remained backward, it was impossible to stop marriages between relatives – the so-called cousin couples, quite common in Turkey, by the way. Honor killings are also not very exceptional, also among Turkish migrants in Europe.[Read More]
Londonistan Becomes a Reality: Brain Dead Brits Elect Muslim Extremist
May 6, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – Since we have little sympathy left for Western Europe regarding its suicide pact with multiculturalism, we will keep this short.
London has just elected its first Muslim Mayor, Sadiq Khan, a member, unsurprisingly, of Britain’s hard left Labour Party.
Indicative of Khan's true allegiance, he of course refused to take the oath of office on a Bible, demanding instead the use of a Qur’an. With this in mind it didn’t take much in the way of digging to discover [we are shocked…not...] that Sadiq is an Islamist with ties to various jihadi groups.
We feel one example will be more than enough:
“On his personal website, Mr. Khan highlights the fact that in 2012, he received an 'Achievement and Inspiration' award from FOSIS. The MP lent his support to yet another controversial organisation during the same period. Known as iEngage or Engage, it has since been rebranded as Muslim Engagement and Development (Mend). It was described in Parliament by Robert Halfon, a Conserative MP, as 'aggressively anti-Semitic, homophobic and [with] extensive links to terrorism in Tunisia and the Middle East'.”
By all outward appearances, FOSIS is a particularly bad player:[Read More]
The Trump Family that I Know by Lynn Patton
May 4, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – Following on the heels of Donald Trump winning the GOP nomination yesterday with his massive victory in the Indiana primary and noting the continued snipping at the heels of Mr. Trump by political ne’er do wells and poseurs, who will remain nameless not only because anonymity is what they deserve, but in the most fervent hope that after their wounds have healed - a process which we know from personal experience is painful – we as conservatives, libertarians, Republicans, reasonable Democrats and generally Americans who still believe America is the last best hope of mankind we offer [not only this insanely long sentence] but the following.
This video was recorded by Lynn Patton who, as a Black woman from a position of high responsibility and authority, inside of the huge Trump organization speaks to the heart of the groundless accusations being hurled against the man whom we hope will go on in November to crush Hillary Clinton and the radical Democrats and become the next president of the United States.[Read More]
By WILLIAM MAYER
May 3, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLinenews.org – Below please consider some thoughts regarding our decision to endorse Donald J. Trump for the office of President of the United States.
Though we view the observation to be axiomatic, nonetheless we note that the current period in history is so critical that the next decade may well determine the future of Western Civilization, a characterization about which we are as serious as a heart attack.
So please allow us to proceed in a stream of consciousness bit of prose…
Mr. Cruz is obviously stunningly intelligent and says the things that strict constructionists want to hear. Mr. Trump has built an empire taking risks while engaging in capitalism and must therefore also be highly intelligent as demonstrated by the ability to get things done in perhaps the toughest city bureaucracy in the U.S., no small feat.
As an aside, Mr. Obama is perhaps as intelligent as Mr. Cruz and look at the wreckage of the last 7+ yrs...so perhaps sheer IQ is not indicative of anything but the ability to process information; it doesn’t speak to motives, intent, policy, ability to forge consensus or any of the qualities required if the West is going to have one last shot at maintaining its greatness.
As we all painfully remember Obama campaigned as a uniter…enough said.
From our vantage point the entirety of Western Civilization hangs in precarious balance as of this writing, and depending on the political decisions that Western leaders make over the next, let’s say, decade [though it could well be shorter than that] we risk losing everything, the entire corpus of values which have made the modern world a significantly better place in which to live.[Read More]
Special Report: Cinco de Mayo Multicultural/Immigration Issue
By THE MAD PIPER
May 3, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org - In grandpa's America, February used to be a special month, with the nation individually celebrating the birthdays of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. From what we hear, the little kiddies used to spend all-too-much time studying the history surrounding these two men and even cutting out their likenesses out of construction paper to bring home to mom and dad, back in the bad old days when dad kept mom chanied to the stove, barefoot and always pregnant.
But as America has thankfully become more progressive, that kind of nonsense is seldom seen anymore and the two birthdates are now celebrated under the much less offensive term, "President's Day."
Now, thanks to a massive and ongoing class struggle led by our "leading edge" brothers and sisters in the International Workers' Movement, the dawning of a new, more socially responsible consciousness has brought with it the understanding that when you really think about it, in many ways May, specifically May 5 – Cinco de Mayo – is far more important and relevant to the times in which we live. Now we realize that some of you might have been taught [probably in "those" kind of schools, you know the few holdouts that still teach that abortion isn't a sacrament] that these two individuals were great Americans, contrary to the real story about America as related by that great and beloved historian Howard Zinn...but trust us, the process of re-education on these matters is unfolding before our very eyes, which is quite exciting.
I mean really, isn't it obvious that old Georgie and Abe had all the advantages that life could offer, while standing on the shoulders of the black man?First of all they were white...really white, like European snow in a world composed mostly of poor people of color. Second they were male, predatory and full of testosterone, undoubtedly part of the patriarchy and could thus use their white privileged hateful power relationships to get their way, oppressing the universal "other" with the yoke of economic and physical bondage.
“Mooqie” al-Sadr on Verge of Toppling Iraq?
May 2, 2016 - Washington, DC – PipeLineNews.org – Unreported by just about the entirely of the media [unless you make the exception of the coverage at the late William Kristol Sr's. clown publication, The National Interest], the Iraqi government is on the verge of a total collapse and Team Obama is actively reviewing plans to abandon the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
That all of this is taking place at the hands of long-time Shia jihadi - Muqtada al-Sadr - who should have been “terminated with great prejudice” even before the launch of Operation Iraqi Freedom - as he continues to exert the raw political power he has wielded for over a decade presents a case study in why it’s morally and strategically indefensible to prosecute wars in a half-assed way.
In his latest move, Sadr [who often retreats to the “holy” city of Qom, Iran when the going gets a bit rough] has organized a series of protests inside what is supposed to be Baghdad’s most highly secured area, established by the U.S. Coalition Forces and known as the Green Zone. Working out of a huge tent city, these demonstrations which have already forced the Abadi government to reshuffle its cabinet now threaten its very existence.
Key takeaways here are that in the Middle East there are no such things as secure areas and that compromise is simply a waypoint on the path to the final bloodletting.
From the reliably excellent, Institute for the Study of War:
“[the] situation is unstable enough to put the U.S. Embassy on alert, and the U.S. must prepare a contingency plan in case the situation spirals out of control. Iraq’s political crisis has reached dangerous new heights that pose a serious threat to the stability of the government, and in the worst case scenario could also threaten U.S. forces. Negotiations will continue among political leaders and the current unrest is likely to reduce as the initial rioting burns out. Nevertheless, if the political blocs cannot come to an agreement, or if violence or an ISIS spectacular attack against the demonstrators occurs, the situation could collapse even further. The U.S. must be prepared for the worst case scenario that sees the political crisis leading to violence in Baghdad and the potential collapse of PM Abadi’s government and deploy diplomatic or military assets in order to mitigate the possibility of an even more disastrous state of affairs.” [source, Sadr Attempts a De-Facto Coup in Iraq, Institute for the Study of War - ISW]
