"…ISIS members burn the Mosul public library. Among the many thousands of books it housed, more than 8,000 rare old books and manuscripts were burned. … Among its lost collections were manuscripts from the eighteenth century, Syriac books printed in Iraq's first printing house in the nineteenth century, books from the Ottoman era, Iraqi newspapers from the early twentieth century and some old antiques like an astrolabe and sand glass used by ancient Arabs. …"

An Egyptian man was convicted and sentenced Tuesday to six years in prison along with a fine of $840 dollars for violating Egypt’s blasphemy laws, which make illegal any criticism of the Islamic religion. … Kerolos’ lawyer said, "Kerolos didn't intend to insult the Islamic religion, only he made a like on the page of Knights of the Cross on Facebook. He doesn't have much experience in the internet plus he suffers from poor eyesight. So there was not any intention for the contempt or blasphemy of Islam.”

The Obama Administration is developing a new socialist constitution for America to replace the original Constitution written by our Founders. Every single one of these huge bills being rammed through congress is simply another article of the Obama constitution which allows no amendments by Republicans.

The people need to understand that these huge 1000 to 2000 page bills — the 111 Congress agenda — are all parts of one master blueprint for a new socialist government. The master plan has been split up into different component pieces so that the people won't notice how they will all fit back together until after they become law.

Murgan Salem al-Gohary, 50, an Islamist leader twice-sentenced under former President Hosni Mubarak for advocating violence, told Egyptian media that the historical landmarks are 'idolatrous' and must be destroyed.

The threats are being taken seriously as ten years ago Gohary helped smash a pair of giant Buddha statues in Afghanistan.

It’s red a America that is the real moocher --Ashoka

Once again, a case of statistics lie, and liars use statistics
1) Seven out of the ten richest counties reside in DC, yet your author elected to omit it. Why ?

Because federal spending per dollar of taxes paid there is almost three times HIGHER than the next highest blue state, New Mexico
No wonder rich liberals want to spend more.
One would expect DC to be somewhat higher by nature of this being where lots of useless bureaucrats park their carcasses, but wow.

2) A state such as California is much more expensive to live in than a state like, say South Dakota.
Therefore taxable incomes will reflect this.

3)In lesser populated states such as Alaska, the costs of wasteful federal boondoggles such as the bridge to nowhere will be highlighted to a greater extent on a chart such as this over say, the billions poured into California’s light rail travesty, or Boston’s big dig money pit.

Then you have your unequal distribution by way of military bases (can’t put them in every state)
So who really isn’t paying their “fair share” ?
How about half the population that has NO federal tax liability whatsoever?

But even more importantly, with a deficit fast approaching twenty trillion dollars, it’s the spending stupid.

We get this same argument over state spending on highways here.
The libs from the cities throw up charts showing the least populated counties get more spending per capita on state roads than does the metro aria as an argument to jack gas taxes for more wasteful utopian light rail projects.

Or how they generously throw taxpayer money to billionaires to build luxurious playpens, (aka generous Obama donor) then feign outrage as those billionaires demand payment from those same taxpayers to get in.

During an Oct. 25 debate at Montclair State University, Professor Grover Furr denied the systematic mass murders committed under Soviet dictator Josef Stalin:

“What you said is a bulls–t. It’s wrong. It’s a lie. . . . I have yet to find one crime that Stalin committed.”

Watch the video again and notice (around 1:50) that there is applause when Professor Furr makes his adamant defense of Stalin… [video]

We’re dealing with people that would rather be hip than smart, and “fairness” has always been an easier sell than the fable of the Little Red Hen, especially if you’re one of the hipsters who wants their bread and circuses for free.

Democrats are the party of organized hatred, and the fact that key constituent groups within the Democratic coalition openly hate each other — e.g., most black people aren’t really down for the whole “LGBT” agenda — does nothing to distract from their unifying principle: Hating Republicans as symbolic scapegoats for whatever aggrieves them.

OWS was a Frankenstein monster birthed in the basement of the White-house that turned on its masters. Obama cranked it up to bludgeon the business community, then it started going rogue and becoming and embarrassment.

Notice how fawning media coverage of OWS dropped dramatically as soon as they started getting involved in bomb plots and such?

Obama cranked it up to bludgeon the business community, then it started going rogue and becoming an embarrassment.

Yeah it was meant to be an ongoing and popular youth movement to excite young people and keep the heat on the wealthy. They thought: Romney will probably win the nomination, he's really rich, we can make people hate the rich, winning!

Except it turned out to be a filthy, disgusting, unlikable hippie fest of mud, disease, feces, and rape that even the media spin couldn't paint as anything but awful. When your iconic image is some dude crapping on a cop car, you aren't a popular movement.

467 @PurpAv at October 01, 2012 01:23 AM
Around the time of the bomb plots, it became pretty clear that some OWS "organizers" had embezzled millions of dollars that were never seen again too. That stolen money was high level Democrat money, not pocket change from the brain dead zombies who were the foot soldiers. Nobody was interested in finding it either...because a prosecution would have had to reveal where it came from.

Once they robbed that cash and were into the bomb plots, it was all over. The administration distanced itself real quick.

Jewish education is all about profanity, bestiality, and dishonesty--if George Soros, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Silverman are to be believed.

The so-called "Jewish Council for Education and Research," in reality a super PAC backed by Soros's son Alexander, has produced a new anti-Romney ad in which Jackson exhorts a family to "Wake the F--- Up!" and work for President Barack Obama's re-election. Earlier this year, the Jewish Council released an ad in which Silverman simulates sex with a dog to mock Jewish GOP donor Sheldon Adelson.

There is nothing "Jewish" at all about these ads--far from it. Yet Alexander Soros--with money, no doubt, from Soros père--uses the "Jewish" label to give the imprimatur of respectability to these profane and profoundly unfunny ads.

What We, the People first need to understand for ourselves (since our leaders are AWOL) is that just as once upon a time the Soviet Union labored mightily for world revolution — “right up to the eve of its collapse,” as Robert Conquest has written – the drive for world Islamization is no pipe dream, either. Some years ago, federal investigators discovered a Muslim Brotherhood manifesto for “grand jihad” against the United States by destroying it “from within.” Earlier this month, Walid Shoebatdiscovered what amounts to a companion document online — an extraordinary book in Arabic, which he calls a “Saudi manifesto” for global Islamization commissioned by King Fahd (d. 2005). Among the sources it draws upon is a work by Sayed Zaynul Abedin, Huma Abedin’s father, called “Muslim Minorities in the West.” The book lays out a sweeping Saudi program to mobilize colonies of “Muslim Minorities” throughout the West to introduce, to entrench, to elevate sharia (Islamic law) above all other law.

One strategic point the Saudi plan puts forward is the need to prevent “Muslim Minorities” from assimilating into the cultures of host nations. As Shoebat notes, the document mentions “already established centers, educational programs, mosques and organizations in the United States” as being “geared towards hindering any Western plan for Muslim assimilation in a non-Muslim host nation.

taqiyyah, in Islam, the practice of concealing one’s belief and foregoing ordinary religious duties when under threat of death or injury…. “precautionary dissimulation” or “prudent fear” partly convey the term’s meaning of self-protection in the face of danger to oneself or, by extension and depending upon the circumstances, to one’s fellow Muslims. Thus, taqiyyah may be used for either the protection of an individual or the protection of a community….

That is to say, in examining his behavior, we are forced to consider two alternative explanations:
A. He’s crazy. Rauhauser seriously believes the lunatic conspiracy theories he promulgates online.
B. He’s evil. Rauhauser is a vicious cynic, who creates elaborate fictions carefully calculated to appeal to the kook-fringe types, thus enabling him to manipulate them for his own selfish and malevolent purposes.
Of course, we cannot rule out the hybrid theory:
C. He’s both crazy and evil. …

I had the privilege of attending Ty Woods' funeral this morning at the North Island Naval Air Station Chapel in Coronado. Ty and Glen Doherty are former SEALs and State Department contractors who came to the aid of the US Ambassador to Libya during the attack on the Benghazi Consulate. … Ty's widow, Dorothy, delivered an inspiring eulogy with more grace, poise, and fervor than I have ever witnessed from the spouse of a fallen warrior. … "To all the Operators here today I give you this charge: Rid the world of those savages.

Business Investors Daily • Sat 2012 Jul 7, 3:28pmThe FBI is investigating more than 100 Muslim soldiers and military contractors with the potential to carry out Fort Hood-style attacks. The administration has kept a lid on the growing threat. It's covering up the truth about an alarmingly widespread Islamist penetration of the military. The dangerous fifth column was discovered more than two years after Army Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, killing 13 and wounding 29. The administration whitewashed the jihadist massacre as a run-of-the-mill case of "workplace violence." Now it's trying to postpone Hasan's trial until after the election to keep Islamic terrorism out of the headlines.
