March 29, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Today's PQ leads noting that well funded neo-Marxists are expanding their 5 year plan [so far very successful, right guys?] to take down the 800 pound cable gorilla, Fox News.
1. As detailed in Politico, Media Matters has in a rededicated effort, "declared war on Fox News."
"..The liberal group Media Matters has quietly transformed itself in preparation for what its founder, David Brock, described in an interview as an all-out campaign of guerrilla warfare and sabotage" aimed at the Fox News Channel...The group is assembling a legal team...it has hired..experienced reporters, Joe Strupp...to dig into Fox's operation to help assemble a book on the network, due out in 2012..."
We find it fascinating that one of the new team of media assassins it has hired is Joe Strupp, ex of Editor & Publisher Magazine.
At E&P, his columns often descended into the netherworld with him demonstrating a penchant for feeding on the warm entrails of the recently demised, a classic case of which was a hit piece on Ronald Reagan, just hours after the great man had passed away. He also was fond of hectoring the mainstream press to further politicize the war in Iraq, as if that were possible at a time when major U.S. newspapers carried as a gruesome body count, the number of U.S. Servicemen KIA above the fold.
So it seems that in Strupp MM is getting both what it wants and deserves.
We can't exactly imagine Murdoch, Ailes and Beck shaking in their boots, unless its from unrestrained laughter.
2. Also of note, the Anti Defamation League [ADL] has mounted a vicious attack on civil rights activist attorney David Yerushalmi, because we must assume, he has strayed from ADL's apparent belief that Shari'a presents no problem to religious liberty.
The ADL's attack is so over-the-top we are not going to quote it, but we will point out that such irresponsible behavior is not new to the group.
March 28, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a January 19 Village Voice piece, Tom Robbins says some rather harsh things about the anti-Shari'a video, The Third Jihad [actually The Third Jihad - Radical Islam's Vision for America], apparently believing his characterization to be akin to a conviction on charges of Islamophobia - fortunately this isn't Europe...yet.
"...a spectacularly offensive smear of American Muslims...72 minutes of gruesome footage of bombing carnage, frenzied crowds, burning American flags, flaming churches, and seething mullahs. All of this is sandwiched between a collection of somber talking heads informing us that, while we were sleeping, the international Islamist Jihad that wrought these horrors has set up shop here and is quietly going about its deadly business..."
Excepting the smear innuendo, the basic take is correct, the film accurately portrays the bloody Islamic jihad, pulling no punches.
This is the reality of the Islamist juggernaut to install Shari'a everywhere, at any cost, and Mr. Robbins has the good sense not to deny the authenticity of the images depicted in the video, which is the face of Islamist violence justified by its own practitioners using the Qur'an.
The author contends that members of the New York Police Dept. [and we must assume all law enforcement in general] should never be shown this type of material as a component of their anti-terrorism training. In this twisted perspective, blinding those in the front lines of the battle is infinitely preferable to being subjected to charges of religious or ethnic bigotry.
March 25, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In an official 2009 document prepared by Catholic Charities USA [see, http://www.catholiccharitiesusa.org/NetCommunity/Document.Doc?id=1924] the organization details its activities, including expenditures as well as income, in that calendar year.
For those not intimately familiar with the workings of this national social welfare group, the amount of funding it has to work with might come as a surprise, $4,270,309,450, a lot of money no matter how one looks at it.
Even more revelatory, of the $4.2B dollar amount, fully 67% comes from the government. That means that nearly $3B of the total, 2 out of every 3 dollar received is dependent upon the largesse of the fed and provided, I think it would be safe to say, without the full knowledge of hard-strapped American taxpayers.
There are a number of reasons why this information is important, primarily because of the potentially corrosive, morally corruptive effect it might have upon Catholic policy makers.
1. That the Church has primarily, over the last few generations especially, steadily increased its political activity, under the guise of "Social Justice," and that the majority component of this political activism is slanted in a hard-left philosophical direction, we believe in a manner inconsistent with any reasonable construction of traditional Catholic theology.
2. That despite the undeniably pro-life rhetoric coming out of the American Catholic Bishops' executive body, the USCCB, the organization has adamantly refused to even take a position on efforts to defund America's single largest provider of abortion, Planned Parenthood.
March 24, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The head of the National Council of Moroccans in Holland, Mohamed Rabbae, is claiming that a prominent politician is essentially a political agent of Israel, "Wilders is a racist in the service of Israel," he stated in an interview during a rally in Amsterdam supposedly against discrimination. Rabbae is one of the Muslims who is suing Wilders for discrimination and religious bigotry. [Translated from the Dutch, a video of the interview can be accessed here, http://www.telegraaf.nl/binnenland/9344556/___Wilders_is_racist_in_dienst_van_Isral___.html?p=19,2]
According to Elsevier magazine, Rabbae sees Wilders as the instrument of an Israeli conspiracy to drive Muslims from Europe. Wilders responded in the same publication, stating that "Rabbae's remarks are proof of unprecedented foolishness and nonsense. Let's leave it at that" [source, Elsevier, translated from the Dutch, http://www.elsevier.nl/web/Nieuws/Politiek/292664/Mohamed-Rabbae-Wilders-is-instrument-van-Israel.htm]
March 23, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a breaking story according to multiple news sources including Haaretz, " Two, Grad rockets hit Be'er Sheva; IAF strikes Gaza launching squad. Eight mortar shells hit western Negev between the two attacks on Be'er Sheva, and within hours of another strike on Ashdod...." [source, Haaretz Service, http://www.haaretz.com/]
Additionally, a massive explosive device, apparently placed in t a phone booth was detonated at Jerusalem bus station, "Explosive device detonated at phone booth near Jerusalem bus stop Wednesday afternoon; 59-year-old woman killed in blast, at least 38 people wounded in attack..." [source, YNet News, http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4046677,00.html]
Today's bloody attacks, building on the atrocity just a few weeks ago, where a family was butchered by Hamas, are bound to cause a major shake-up in Israel's thinking regarding its policies vis-a-vis the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and the viability of a "Palestinian State."
March 22, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In discussing this matter we must leave aside the craven hypocrisy of a claimed anti-interventionist [who, along with the Dem leadership, actively sought the defeat of the United States in Iraq and Afghanistan...uhhh before he had to...well...take responsibility for the consequences of his actions] turning a poverty stricken, godforsaken, but sovereign Middle Eastern county [with oil] into a shooting gallery. The left owns this territory so thoroughly, no explanation is needed.
Now it is a given that Muammar Gadhafi is a despot [arguably certifiable and in desperate need of a new couturier], a terrorist and an enabler of terrorism. None of this is really news in his neighborhood.
One would have thought given Mr. Obama's heated and irresponsible rhetoric regarding the military conflicts in which America was then and is still currently involved, that barring an extreme act of provocation, attacking Libya would not rank very high on his to-do list.This of course makes a big assumption, that TeamObama actually has the level of focus necessary to think about international relations in such an ordered manner.
So the attack is simply inexplicable and we believe indefensible.
Below ten quick reasons - in no particular order - why this action should never have been seriously contemplated, let alone carried out.
1. Libya poses no national threat to us [or any signatory to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization], many other countries do but we don't bomb them with no provocation, we don't even go out of our way to say harsh things about the worst of them in public. Dozens upon dozens of countries abuse their citizens, it's the rule not the exception throughout the world and by the standards of the machete brutality constantly on display in places like Africa, Gadhafi is a candidate to baby sit your kids. There are fleets of pirates operating off the coast of Somalia who have recently murdered Americans...were their villages leveled with cruise missiles? If so, the news never made the NY Times.
REFUSAL TO TAKE AFFIRMATIVE STAND SUPPORTING DE-FUNDING OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD, A MAJOR BREACH OF FAITH
By WILLIAM MAYER
March 21, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As should be painfully obvious at this late date, the Catholic Church is operating in a crisis mode, largely driven by twin scandals.
The first being the matter of priestly sexual abuse, with an estimated 4,692 priests [source, John Jay /Bishop's Accountability Report, pg. 26, http://www.bishop-accountability.org/reports/2004_02_27_JohnJay_revised/2004_02_27_John_Jay_Main_Report_Optimized.pdf the John Jay Report] having been accused of this horrific offense.
Of course allegations and convictions are entirely separate matters, but here too the Church has erred in dealing with the problem in such secrecy that the process can be characterized as at best, opaque. Again, estimates vary, but the consensus seems to be that approximately $500,000,000 in settlements have been paid out so far.
The second, most recent and continuing scandal has been the USCCB's substantial funding, through its "social justice" sub-directorate, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development [CCHD], of hard-left, sometimes neo-Marxist political organizations, under the guise of outreach to the poor and disadvantaged. Some of these are nothing more than front groups, created by Saul Alinsky 1. a communist fellow traveler.
Though some of the most obvious of these abuses have been addressed by USCCB/CCHD, it was only done grudgingly, its hand forced by public outrage rather than any process of internal review.
The negative impact caused by these matters has battered both the credibility of and most importantly, the moral teaching authority that the Church had only a few generations ago.
Despite Catholicism being in such a state of tumult and increasingly rent by schismatic sectarianism, the one remaining theological anchor that unified the majority of the Catholic world was respect for the sanctity of life, with about 60% of the laity opposed to abortion [see, 2009 Gallup Poll, http://www.gallup.com/poll/117154/catholics-similar-mainstream-abortion-stem-cells.aspx]. That approximately 4 out of 10 Catholics disagree with this basic faith proposition, is itself indicative of uncertainty about the authenticity of this supposedly foundational principle.
March 21, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - It was on February 5, 2011, that British Special Forces (SAS) in Afghanistan seized a convoy of 48 powerful Iranian rockets destined for Taliban fighters. (The story leaked to the press one month later, though). "The 122mm rockets have twice the range and twice the blast radius of the Taliban's more commonly used 107mm missiles and have not been seen in action against NATO forces for the past four years," The Telegraph, a British newspaper, reported on March 9. "The rockets have a range of more than 12 miles and shower shrapnel to a radius of nearly 100 feet." British Foreign Secretary William Hague was quoted as saying: "I am extremely concerned by the latest evidence that Iran continues to supply the Taliban with weaponry ? weapons clearly intended to provide the Taliban with the capability to kill Afghan and ISAF soldiers from a significant range."
It was by no means the first time that the radical Iranian Shia regime supplied weapons to the Sunni Taliban terrorists. They did so on numerous occasions before, for example in 2007 when NATO forces discovered Iranian anti-tank grenades in the Western Afghan province of Farah. And on December 18, 2010, an officer of the elite Al-Quds force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was captured by US special forces in Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan. He was described as "a key Taliban weapons facilitator.'"
HOW FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS ARE PLANNING YOUR FUTURE
By CAMILLE GIGLIO
March 21, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Much is being written about the changes and reforms being planned in education. Every special interest group, government agency, union, community nonprofit and mega business seemingly has its own plan for the education of our students. The classroom and its outcome or end product has become an extension of big business' planning department. People such as Bill and Melinda Gates think they can already predict many workers will be needed in various industries at specific points in the future.
This is nothing short of the collectivization of education, already a government monopoly, to produce a society deemed appropriate by the social engineers.
The federal government is in the process of analyzing its various departments to determine how many future employees will need to graduate with the proper credentials to fill positions. President Obama has been quoted as stating that the federal government needs the best and brightest of the future students and he has spent his time visiting some of the potential role-model schools for producing those future leaders of bureaucracy - meet Big Brother.
March 18, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Geert Wilders, the head of Holland's Freedom Party, says that a Moroccan cultural center aimed at strengthening ties between Moroccans and Dutch will achieve exactly the opposite.
The politician stated that, "The Moroccan government should not in any way be involved with Moroccans in Holland." The center is to be financed by the Moroccan government for the purpose of providing Moroccan youth with a greater knowledge of their culture. [source, http://www.telegraaf.nl/binnenland/9301402/__PVV_tegen_Marokkanencentrum__.html?sn=binnenland,buitenland]
Wilders thinks that the center will work against the integration of Moroccans in Holland, already a huge problem in the Netherlands, and has asked for clarification from the Minister of Internal Affairs. The Moroccan Minister for migrant affairs made the announcement while in Amsterdam, expressing his "satisfaction" at how well Moroccans had integrated there.
March 17, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - I am of a Christian background. However, one of my favorite people was Jewish, and another is Muslim.
The Jewish man was business professor and author Julian Simon. He taught that people are the world's most valuable resource, and the "ultimate resource" is our creative intellect.
The Muslim is Bangladeshi banker and economist Muhammad Yunus. He says "poor people are like bonsai trees," planted in a little pot. "There is nothing wrong with their seeds. It's just that society never gave them an adequate soil base to grow."
"Once the poor can unleash their energy and creativity," Dr. Yunus continues, "poverty will disappear very quickly. The poor themselves can create a poverty-free world. All we have to do is free them from the chains that governments have put around them."
We need freedom, and opportunities to get an education and open businesses. We need a government and legal system that protects our property rights and contracts, regulates dangerous pollution and activities, and protects us from criminals and unscrupulous business people, but without having so many rules that people and businesses cannot function properly.
March 16, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - A March 14 posting at Ikhwanweb, the Muslim Brotherhood's official English website, reveals that it has had "informal," ties with Iran's Shia theocracy for years.
"The Muslim Brotherhood seeks unity between Muslims calling for justice, civil society and a free and fair political arena. As part of its strategy it engages with nations ?like Iran ? and groups ? like Hamas - that would otherwise perhaps be ostracized, a move that would only isolate and inflate division and conflict...In this context, the Muslim Brotherhood has maintained informal ties with Iran for many years. Under the influence of the tolerant Brotherhood, Egyptians are more comfortable with Shiite Islam than other Sunnis in other Arab countries." [source, MB website, http://www.ikhwanweb.com/article.php?id=28217]
This is obviously an effort to unify and unite the Ummah, the Arabic word for the Muslim world community, a goal much desired by Islamists, knowing that their dream of a worldwide caliphate can't come to pass, unless some level of unity is established. The immense political power which Iran's nuke program would lend to such a unification would be substantial, a point which is probably wasted on Team Obama's inept State Department [who is Hillary having tea with today?].
March 15, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, has attained an unchallenged eminence among American Muslims, despite his problematic associations.
He is the past President of the Islamic Society of North America, notorious for it having been named by government prosecutors in U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation [the largest and most successful - all defendants convicted on all 108 charges - American prosecution of Hamas funding] under the heading, "List of Unindicted Co-conspirators and/or Joint Venturers*"
The group was specifically identified under the additional heading, "The following are individuals/entities who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood." [source, view the government document here, archived at the Investigative Project on Terrorism, List of Unindicted Co-conspirators and/or Joint Venturers*
Mr. Siddiqi is so prominent an authority among American Muslims that he is the Chairman of the Executive Council of The Fiqh Council of North America - itself an affiliate of ISNA - [source, http://www.fiqhcouncil.org/node/6].
The Fiqh Council is entrusted with making determinations regarding Islamic law, Shari'a. It issues fatwas, legally binding opinions, regarding such matters. One might liken it to an Islamic court of appeal.
March 14, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Over the past few days a relatively small Gulf State military force, led by Saudi Arabia has entered Bahrain, intending to quell the increasing unrest in the country primarily led by its Shia majority. The force is apparently there with the blessing of Bahrain's ruling monarchy.
So far the WH has been mum on the troop movement.
The latest out of the State Dept. was a formulaic statement issued by the now departed P.J. Crowley, "The United States is very concerned by recent violence surrounding protests in Bahrain. We have received confirmation that two protesters in Bahrain were recently killed, and offer our condolences to the families and friends of the two individuals who lost their lives. The United States welcomes the Government of Bahrain's statements that it will investigate these deaths, and that it will take legal action against any unjustified use of force by Bahraini security forces. We urge that it follow through on these statements as quickly as possible. We also call on all parties to exercise restraint and refrain from violence." [source, http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2011/02/156626.htm]
Bahrain occupies a strategic location in the Middle East, lying just off the East coast of Saudi Arabia in the Persian Gulf.
March 14, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As detailed by Steven Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism, New Magazine Aims to Push Jihadi Women, al-Qaeda is now specifically targeting Muslim women, praising and alerting them for a potentially greater role in keeping the jihad alive and on track.
This greater presence, is at once an effort to shift as well as redefine the role of jihadist Muslim women, from that of front-line Islamist killer, ala suicide bomber, Wafa Idris, to that of "home maker to the jihad."
"The Majestic Woman portrays the women of al-Qaida primarily as mothers, sisters, and daughters of the jihad, not warriors. Strict observance of mandates of Shariah law, such as the niqab, and support for their husbands, forms the primary basis of their jihad. Many of the articles also cover character development, stressing the importance of providing a calm and peaceful home. The article 'Tolerance and Patience' shows them as the keepers of the home front. "That is of considerable importance, my sister in Islam, that you produce from your home a delicious meal, with is beautiful and soothing," the article says. 'He finds in the marriage his rest after the misery; he finds in you the home and warmth after hardship.'"
The mind reels - "Hello my beloved, how was work today? Insha'Allah, it wasn't too stressful. Why don't you take off those blood soaked fatigues, slip into something a little more comfortable and watch al-Jazeera until dinner is ready..."
March 13, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On Friday night, in the Jewish town of Itamar, Israel, a team of Muslim terrorists slipped through the security barrier and broke into the residence of Udi and Ruth Fogel.
What followed were acts of cruelty so ghastly that most media sources have refused to publish the images, assuming they gave the attack any mention at all.
Entering the home, apparently through an open window, during the Jewish Sabbath [Shabbat] these barbarians proceeded to butcher the family.
According to combined sources, they somehow missed the family's 6 year old son, who was sleeping on the couch but found the father in the bedroom, asleep with a new born baby whereupon their throats were slashed, nearly to the point of decapitation.
The mother, upon leaving the bathroom while the mayhem was occurring, was set upon by these animals, and stabbed to death.
They then entered the bedroom of the 11 year old son, who was reading on his bed. They also slashed his throat, killing him like the parents. The also killed his three year old brother, stabbing him several times through the heart.
Fortunately, in their haste, they missed the 2 year old who was also sleeping, but apparently in a separate room.
The killers then left the residence and fled through the same breach in the security fence they has used as an entry point.
One member of the family, an older daughter had been out, but returning to her home became alarmed when she found the door locked.
She went to a nearby house, where a Rabbi lived and they both returned and woke the 6 year old son who had slept through the ordeal. He then unlocked the door. The Rabbi departed but quickly returned with a weapon when the daughter - assaulted by the butchery - ran screaming from the house. The Rabbi fired several shots into the air to alert the defense team.
Finding suspicious footprints, at 3:30 a.m., Saturday morning, the security team followed them back to the Arab village of Avrata.
All told, 5 were mercilessly slaughtered like cattle, Udi , Ruth , Yoav , Elad  and Hadas [3 months].
In a related event, upon the announcement of this atrocity in Hamas governed Gaza, citizens passed out candy and rejoiced. [source, Israel News http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4041106,00.html]
"Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children.
Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying the joy "is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank."
It's impossible to put into words the dimension of the evil that Islamic jihad represents. No words or grouping thereof can do these acts of depraved religious violence justice, so we have decided to let the following pictures give testament to the evil which Western civilization is facing and refuses to adequately confront.
For the entire article, please follow the headline link.
March 11, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Nicolas Sarkozy, President of France, which contains Europe's largest Muslim population, has fired his diversity advisor, Abderrahmane Dahmane, after he urged Muslims to quit Sarkozy's UMP party, upon the disclosure that a scheduled national debate regarding whether Islam's codes are compatible with a free society, would go forward.
Over the last 5 years France has been the scene of numerous Muslim uprisings, usually accompanied by riots and car burnings. The resentment lingers however, with swaths of largely Muslim areas now being considered "no-go" zones by the police.
According to the BBC [see, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-12714957] it seems that Mr. Dahmane's commitment to diversity is less than total:
March 10, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On the eve of Representative Peter King's historic and long overdue investigation into the causative factors behind the increasing radicalization of American Muslims, some Democrat legislators are launching an all-out campaign of disinformation, smearing the American public as being Islamophobic.
In this effort they are carrying water for Islamist groups, who are rightfully fearful of what Mr. King's hearings might uncover.
Below a "Sense of Congress" "Dear Colleague," resolution being pushed by John Conyers [D, MI], Andre Carson [D, IN] and Hansen Clarke [D, MI], which states, "...the federal government should take steps to counter anti-Muslim sentiment. Over the last decade, the American Muslim community has confronted a festering level of suspicion which has manifested itself in hostile government policies and bias from the general public..."
March 9, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Muzzammil Hassan, a Pakistani born 46 year old television entrepreneur was sentenced today for the brutal beheading of his wife, Aasiay, receiving the maximum sentence for second degree murder, 25 years to life.
We remain mystified why such a cold blooded act could be defined as anything other than murder in the first degree.
Muzammill and Aasiay established the Muslim-centric Bridges TV in 2004 [visit website, http://www.bridgestv.com/]
The company claims that, "Bridges TV is the first channel of its kind that offers a broad range of lifestyle oriented programming that aims to foster a greater understanding between the West and MESA (Middle Eastern/South Asian) religions, its cultures, and diverse populations." [source, http://www.bridgestv.com/AboutUs_Company.aspx]
To gather some perspective regarding Bridges' content one can visit the network's Top News stories on its index page, which carries a report on the Peter King hearings on American Muslim radicalization, which commence tomorrow. Solicited for comment on the hearings was the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR] spokesman Ibrahim Hooper.
March 8, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Melvin Bledsoe the heartbroken father of Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad [aka, Carlos Leon Bledsoe] - responsible for the 2009 jihadist attack on the Little Rock Army Recruiting Center, killing one and wounding another - is slated to appear as a witness on the third panel of Rep. Peter King's investigation into the rise of radicalism among domestic Muslims.
We assume the purpose of Mr. Bledsoe's appearance is to trace the path his son took in becoming an Islamic holy warrior/mujahideen/jihadist, and he has a wealth of information to impart.
As per standard operating procedure these days, law enforcement officials have been tight lipped regarding Muhammad's reason for the shootings, clearly nervous at the prospect of having to deal with the defendant's claimed membership in al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula and his proud Islamism.
In a series of notes sent to the Memphis based newspaper, Commercial Appeal and also to Judge Herbert W. Wright, a Pulaski County Circuit Court judge, Muhammad provided great insight into his motivation for his rampage, which he claimed was Islamic law:
Below from these letters:
"...how I became Muslim. I don't believe in the word "convert." What I use "revert" because we Muslims believe that all mankind are born into Islam...I went to Yemen to learn, meaning more about Islam...Yemen is quoted from our beloved Prophet...as a place of faith and wisdom...it is one of the few places left in the Islamic world where people are actually still Muslims...[speaking of his source of income in Yemen]...I felt uncomfortable teaching the language of the Enemy to my brothers and sisters...my wife's [he was married in Yemen] family is from Abyan...which was bombed by American drones...by O'l Uncle Sam...they claimed they targeted a meeting of the Mujahedeen...I read a statement from our Shaykh "Anwar Al Awlaki," and he said that they killed 17 women and 23 kids...We want revenge...They kill our soldiers, we kill theirs, but if they bomb our women, children and elders Guess what? We'll bomb theirs..the apostates of Yemeni government are true dogs. I wish I had some of their blood on my hands..."
March 8, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Forty thousand researchers and clinicians have just written to the journal Science -through their professional societies-asking for broader and quicker testing of "new chemicals in our environment." Eight societies, including the geneticists, endocrinologists, developmental biologists and others say that 12,000 new substances are being registered with the America Chemical Society every day. They admit that not many of these "new substances" will ever make it into the environment.
Still, the societies are asking the federal government to broaden testing beyond toxicology, into such unproven dangers as trace levels of bodily toxins and potential endocrine disruption. This would, of course, employ far more of the learned societies' members.
Do these professional societies think they have learned a lesson from the climate modelers? To wit: if you want more of your members profitably employed, get the Feds to give them lots of nice, salaried government jobs with hefty retirements-to solve some newly concocted media-driven scare The public is always looking for another scare to tickle their fear genes and the congress will happily fund such projects, with your money.
March 7, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - With the Middle East in turmoil with a substantial Islamist component, Turkey seems to be following suit. Regardless the matter of these arrests may be far more complex and murky than they appear, given the so-far known facts.
EuroNewsNet [http://www.euronews.net/2011/03/07/concern-as-turkish-journalists-charged-with-terrorism/] today reported that, "...four journalists and a writer," have been arrested, charged in an alleged plot to overthrow the government.
The men are claimed to have been associated with a group characterized as being "ultra nationalist," and expressed vigorous criticism of the current regime in their writing.
There are reportedly hundreds arrested on similar accusations, some of them have been held for years with no prospect of ever coming to trial.
Turkey's prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan [chairman of the AK party] has been widely considered to be a moderate Muslim, despite his calculated anti-Semitism, which has become notorious.
EFFORT TO STOP KING HEARINGS, AN ATTEMPT TO IMPOSE SHARI'A PRINCIPLES
March 7, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The prospect of Congressman Peter King's hearings, investigating the extent to which Muslim Americans have become radicalized, especially since 9/11, has whipped America's dominant political culture into a Pavlovian froth not seen for decades.
They are scared to death, causing the Obama administration and its allies to attempt to crucify Mr. King even before the gavel falls on Thursday.
Last week we documented in Breaking! - Capitol Hill Alarmed Over Intimidation By Islamist Groups Preceding King Hearings the extent to which long time Democrat members of the House were working behind the scenes to scuttle King's investigation, casting him as a bigot - a standard talking point of the left. This effort at intimidating Mr. King's rightful pursuit, legitimized by Congress' oversight authority, extends to the ludicrous, where a DailyKos staffer/organizer/trainer [think ACORN with Soros funding and a collectivist philosophy] trying to be passed off as a legitimate presenter in a Congressionally organized and endorsed event.
All of this was entirely expected and predictable. The enemies of traditional America, know that King is, with this investigation, in an allegorical manner picking at the scab under which the leftist/Marxist/Islamist nexus has been given refuge from scrutiny.
This unholy alliance of anti-democratic, authoritarian forces fears being outed in a very public manner. Unfortunately for them, they have already failed.
Due to the work of Mr. King, his allies in Congress, a large and growing coalition of well organized citizen-led opposition and a few heroic media types willing to stand up to the leftist/Islamist effort to censor political speech, America is rapidly becoming aware for the first time of and concerned about, topics banned by this administration - Islamism, Shari'a, Islamic terrorism and the Muslim Brotherhood front groups operating in this country.
March 4, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Not that it takes recognition by a charter member of the MSM to establish a fact already in evidence, but today's piece in the WashPost [see, Scott Wilson, Obama administration prepares for possibility of new post-revolt Islamist regimes, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/03/03/AR2011030305531.html] demonstrates that even some members of left are feeling a bit queasy about the announcement by TeamObama that it is willing to accept Islamist governments establishing themselves in the ME in the wake [it isn't over yet] of the revolutionary/anarchistic movements which have recently sprung up in that part of the world.
"The Obama administration is preparing for the prospect that Islamist governments will take hold in North Africa and the Middle East... The administration is already taking steps to distinguish between various movements in the region that promote Islamic law in government"
Anyone carefully watching this administration is well aware that in a myriad of ways it has telegraphed that message since the day Mr. Obama took office - it's the core of Obama's Islamic rapprochement.
The capping event of course was the President's disastrously misguided speech to the Muslim world, delivered at Al-Azhar University in Cairo [with members of the Muslim Brotherhood in attendance, by invitation] the nerve center of the worldwide Wahhabist movement.
March 3, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Hill is abuzz, swamped in a flurry of emails alleging that self-proclaimed moderate American Muslim groups are engaged in a furious campaign to intimidate those who speak out about the threat posed by Islamism and the spread of Shari'a, Islamic law.
The newest apparent victim, WMAL talker [and former Congressman, R, Iowa] Fred Grandy, who according, to the station simply resigned his position, "Fred Grandy has informed WMAL of his intention to resign from the station and its morning program..." [source, http://www.wmal.com/Article.asp?id=2124417]
WMAL is part of Citadel Broadcasting Company and MediaSpan/MediaSpan Network.
Contradicting WMAL's explanation for Grandy's exit are published reports that Grandy was fired because of his outspokenness regarding Islamic radicalism here in the U.S. Fred's wife, known on the program as Mrs. Fred, typically devoted Grandy's Friday show to exposing the Islamists operating within our borders. [see, Pajamas Media, http://pajamasmedia.com/tatler/2011/03/02/cair-gets-fred-grandy-yanked-off-wmal-am/]
Below, a snippet from one of these Congressional emails, providing the tenor and level of concern.
"THIS IS ALL ABOUT FREE SPEECH...Fred Grandy and Mrs Fred are being silenced from talking about Radical Islam, Sharia Law and Muslim Brotherhood's infiltration across America (ESPECIALLY Mrs. Fred who has been the leading force on this issue) ... DON'T LET THIS STOP - SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW - we must make our voices heard NOW, BEFORE IT IS TO LATE - our freedoms are under attack. Thank God for the Grandys' who have been outspoken on this issue - when no one else has dared to "go there" as they have."
As we have noted repeatedly on these pages, America's Islamist groups are quaking over the prospect of being outed by the King hearings and the related investigations which will surely follow.
March 3, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Farmers, along with the rest of us, could get hit with a triple jolt of regulatory shock if the Environment Protection Agency goes forward with its announced controls on carbon emissions. Consumers are already paying heavily for the federal mandate that puts a huge chunk of our corn crop, as ethanol, into our gas tanks instead of into our meat, milk, and eggs. While food costs soar, along with fuel costs, it is a waste of good corn as it contributes almost zero to our energy independence.
Now, the EPA is moving to impose tough limits on carbon emissions from the big power plants across the country -and then plans to screw the new carbon limits down tighter and tighter. Farmers' fuel and electricity costs would go through the roof, along with everybody else's.
The goal, after all, is to make the coal, oil, and natural gas that power most of our power plants too expensive to use. They need to make all our electricity at least slightly more expensive than the ultra-costly solar panels and wind turbines that have failed to produce "Green power" in Europe and, thus far, fail to provide much energy here at home.
March 2, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Congressman Frank Wolf [R, VA] joined today in a bipartisan news conference demanding that Pakistan's Minister For Minority Affairs, Bhatti, be given the dignity of a State funeral after having been murdered by the Taliban for his opposition to Pakistan's increasing radicalization.
Mr. Wolf and the group also urged the Obama administration to send a high level delegation to attend the service.
About the tragic assassination, the Congressman stated, "We gather today under tragic circumstances - the assassination of Pakistan's Federal Minister for Minority Affairs Shahbaz Bhatti, a heroic man of faith whose courageous and outspoken leadership against his nation's draconian blasphemy law made him a prime target of extremist Islamist elements in his country. Bhatti was the only Christian member of the Pakistani cabinet. We have lost a friend and an ally and our prayers are with his Bhatti?s family and those in Pakistan who mourn his loss and who stood with him in his fight against injustice and intolerance. Bhatti devoted his life to defending the most vulnerable-he is literally a modern day martyr."
March 2, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - According to an item carried by the Voice of America, Pakistan's Minister of Minority Affairs - Shahbaz Bhatti - was assassinated by Taliban terrorists today.
The Minister was the only high-level Christian administrator in the Pakistani government.
"...He was a member of the ruling Pakistani People's party headed by Asif Ali Zardari, the widower of Benazir Bhutto. Minister Shahbaz Bhatti was critical of the Pakistani blasphemy laws which mandate death for anyone who "insults Islam or is critical of the Prophet Mohammed"
March 2, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In an emergency email, just blasted out of the MoveOn coven in Berkeley, these Soros clowns have finally read the writing on the wall; the gig is up and they are going to lose big time along with their union goon buds in Wisconsin.
"Dear MoveOn member,
We could be on the verge of losing in Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin 14 - the brave Democratic state senators who left the state to stop the Republican attacks on workers -are under increasing pressure to return to Wisconsin.
Governor Walker is even threatening to lay off thousands of state workers to blackmail Democrats into coming back. And as soon as just one Democratic senator returns, Republicans will be able to jam through their terrible bill.
Unfortunately, over the last 24 hours there have been credible reports from blogs and local news reporters that this is imminent."
Reports are that at least 8 of Wisconsin's Dem legislator runaways, have had enough and know that the public strongly supports the moderate fiscally conservative plan being advanced by Governor Walker.
March 2, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - This Sunday, a citizen-led coalition of national security conscious organizations will be conducting a rally in support of Rep. Peter King's upcoming hearings on the troubling rise in domestic Islamic radicalism.
Many groups have joined together in this effort to inform the public about the threat posed by the spread of Islamism in the United States.
Sponsored by Liberty Rocks, the gathering will include [but is not limited to] members of the: Coalition to Honor Ground Zero, Liberty Rocks, Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam, 9/11 Families for a Secure America, Sudan Freedom Walk, American Maronite Union, Indian American Intellectuals Forum, www.SecureAmericaNow.org, Alliance for Iranian Women, Americans for Peace and Tolerance, Center for Policy Research in American Education, Women United International and the Alliance for Interfaith Resistance.
Event organizers say they stand alongside the majority of Americans, "who are concerned about our national security," and support King's planned investigation.
