Muslim Brotherhood Starts A Political Party Out Of Chicago

Via comment by Anonymous on Open Jihad Declared in Egypt Following State Dept....

In this, the final segment in the Center’s series on the USCMO (United States Council of Muslim Organizations), the first U.S. political party openly associated with the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood, the rise of the UMMA (not an acronym but the full name of the group) follows shortly on the return of Sabri Samirah, member of the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood, to the U.S. following eleven years of exile. Once Samirah’s travel ban was lifted by the Obama administration in early 2014, he returned quickly to the U.S. and launched into a busy schedule of appearances and speeches to galvanize the U.S. Muslim community to political activism.

By 23 September 2014, Samirah’s new organization, Our UMMA, which succeeded UMAA (United Muslim Americans Association) to promote the political ambitions of the Muslim Brotherhood formally had been established with the Illinois Secretary of State’s office. The following picture is a screenshot from the Illinois Secretary of State’s office with the corporation file detail report for UMMA where Sabri Samirah is named as the registered agent.

You Thought Conservatives Were Moralistic? Liberal Rules for Political Correctness Are Repressive, Exhausting, Liberal Author Complains

Via WiscoDave

College Students

While conservatives are often considered moralistic to a fault, liberal moralism has become so repressive that some liberals now fear everyday conversations.

In a Tuesday article for New York Magazine, a liberal publication, Jonathan Chait wrote about the new "political correctness," which now comes in the form of phrases like "trigger warnings," "microaggressions" or "mansplaining." These new liberal rules, Chait wrote, is a "system of left-wing ideological repression." Those rules are so stifling, any meaningful debate in liberal circles is cut off.

"A community, virtual or real, that adheres to the rules is deemed 'safe.' The extensive terminology plays a crucial role, locking in shared ideological assumptions that make meaningful disagreement impossible," he explained.

The victims of the new political correctness, Chait pointed out, are not just conservatives; often, they are liberal. He interviewed several liberals for the article and his thesis was provided further confirmation when some asked not to be identified for fear of retribution from their fellow liberals.

An unidentified "professor at a prestigious university" told Chait that she and her colleagues are so "terrified of facing accusations of triggering trauma" that they avoid "traditional academic work of intellectual exploration." "This is an environment of fear," she said in explaining her need for anonymity.

NYPD to Permanently Patrol Protests with Machine Guns

Via III Percent Patriots

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton announced Thursday that 350 heavily armed NYPD officers, called the “Strategic Response Group,” will soon be patrolling protests and the city at large.
He said the new strain of hyper-armed police will be
“…equipped and trained in ways that our normal patrol officers are not. They’ll be equipped with all the extra heavy protective gear, with the long rifles and machine guns — unfortunately sometimes necessary in these instances.”
Bratton announced  their purpose is specifically
“…designed for dealing with events like our recent protests, or incidents like Mumbai or what just happened in Paris.”

Obama's America: Red States Bore The Brunt Of Federal Grant Cuts


You probably know this line by heart by now; Obama saying we're not a collection of red states or blue states, we’re the United States (I’m paraphrasing). Yet, we all know that’s bologna. Red states and blue states have different values, different views on government, and different attitudes towards America’s role in the world. To put it in another way, it’s the urban-based elite vs. the rural American.
No other president has accentuated such divisions as Barack Obama. That’s fine; I’m a fan of partisanship and government gridlock–our rights remain safe when government does next to nothing.

But, another area where such divisions are shown is in state budgets, where red states have been the victim of disproportionate cuts in federal grants compared to that of their blue state neighbors (via Reuters):

"The U.S. has opened an investigation into allegations of misconduct by its own attorneys.."

 The arson destruction of Jay Dobyns' home is just part of a years'-long ordeal involving ATF's "breach of  covenant."

Starting out quoting Shakespeare and ending up citing Kafka, Judge Francis M. Allegra’s conclusions about ATF conduct that led him to rule in favor of retired agent Jay Dobyns in a breach of covenant suit are scathingly revealed in his previously sealed opinion. That judgment was revoked after Allegra learned of “fraud upon the court” considerations, this column reported Sunday.

Leading his opinion with a verse from Othello, Allegra pointedly let the government defendants he ruled against know he considered them to have robbed Dobyns of his “good name.” Concluding his opinion with a reference comparing Dobyns’ ordeal to that imposed by the ‘totalitarian state” in “The Trial,” and calling it “Kafkaesque,” Allegra further observed that the conduct of "certain ATF officials ... bears little resemblance to the lofty sayings carved into the facades of the Department of Justice.” He was referring to “words now carved into the office rotunda of the Attorney General” that “The United States wins its point whenever justice is done its citizens in the courts.”

“Based on the breach of the covenant, the court finds that plaintiff [Dobyns] is entitled to damages in the amount of $173,000,” Allegra ordered in the opinion he has since revoked in order to pursue an investigation into further government misconduct. “The court concludes that defendant [ATF] is entitled to – nothing.”

The waterfront downtown is a major draw, with a renovated theater, wonderful shops, and a wine-tasting scene that surprises some visitors. The Pamlico River is popular with the sailing crowd 10 months of the year, and hunting and fishing are thriving activities in the area. Founded in 1776 and named for General George Washington years before he became our nation's first president, this town wears its history proudly but lightly, sometimes referring to itself as "Little Washington."

Lynch Will Take Up Holder's Torch of Injustice

Via Billy

Attorney General Eric Holder announced his resignation last September, effective when a replacement is confirmed. On Wednesday, Congress conducted the first day of hearings with that nominee, U.S. attorney Loretta Lynch. And it appears she’ll pick up right where Holder left off.

Early in the hearing, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) explained, “[T]he Attorney General is the premier law enforcement officer … in America. He or she sets the tone for law in America, the commitment to law, and must resist politicizing law and do the right thing on a daily basis.”

And Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) lamented, “Public confidence in the department’s ability to do its job without regard to politics has been shaken, with good reason.”

Indeed, what a tone Holder set. To name but a few egregious activities from the last six years in which he served as Barack Obama’s criminal co-conspirator, the AG trafficked illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels via Operation Fast and Furious, tossed an airtight voter-intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party in Philadelphia and sued Southern states over voter ID laws. So he’s leaving big shoes to fill.

Sessions to global warming alarmists: Cool it!

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) shows inaccuracy of global warming predictions.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has a message for global warming alarmists: Cool it.

Alabama’s junior senator took to the senate floor this week to express his frustration with the Obama Administration and its Environmental Protection Agency, which is seeking to impose trillions of dollars of regulations on the American economy, due to what Sessions argued is at best faulty logic and at worst outright propaganda.

“The scare tactics that we’ve been hearing are not coming to fruition,” he said. “(Yet) many members of Congress want to take drastic action that would increase the cost of electricity and gasoline… It would virtually end coal production in the United States… They claim that the science of global warming is settled, but I suggest questions remain.”

To back up his claims, Sessions went full-on classroom mode on the Senate floor, including pulling out charts and graphs to illustrate his points.

Here are four areas he believes prove that imposing further environmental regulations on the economy is irrational.

Marty Loschen, director of the Spring Street Museum in downtown Shreveport, thinks he's found remnants of the hand-propelled craft in the banks of a branch of Cross Bayou about a half-mile west of where the Confederate Navy had a shipyard. At Cross Bayou's mouth on Red River, it was home to the leaky ironclad CSS Missouri and a fast packet, the Webb, whose presence overshadowed the humbler underwater vessels.

Investor Warning: South Africa

The accompanying cutting, from today’s Mercury, serves to confirm that South Africa is indisputably on a Zimbabwe-style road to rack-and-ruin: Black ANC government ministers, including King Kong himself, regularly attend overseas’ business conferences to attract Overseas’ Investors. Any potential Investors must, however, be warned about the accompanying article and be warned about the treachery of our black leadership scum. Furthermore, I must remind potential investors about the perils of the ANC government’s racist Affirmative Action/Employment Equity, and BEE, regulations:  inexperienced, poorly-educated, parasitical blacks must be given employment preference, irrespective of more competent, better-qualified Whites. 

Stipulated minimum wages, furthermore, are proving to be very inflationary in the light of poor productivity. Similarly, Black Economic Empowerment is a situation in which politically-connected blacks get handed huge sums of cash, to start their own businesses, but these morons seem to think that “turnover is profit,” and spend everything on big homes, luxury vehicles and expensive clothes, etc. The BEE success rate is estimated to be less-than 10% but government continues with this drain on our fiscus!

"A martyr for the South, Henry Wirz"

Objet: Captain Henry Wirz, Assistant Adjutant General, Confederate States Army
Ladies and Gentlemen,

You may have read or heard me talking before about the American War of Secession (1861 – 1865) and its best known Swiss participant, Captain Henry Wirz, my great-granduncle.

His name is indispensably related to Camp Sumpter Prison, better known as Andersonville, Georgia. Captain Wirz was its commandant (1864 – 1865). After the war he was arrested, brought to Washington D.C. where he was brought to trial and sentenced to death for alleged war crimes and executed by hanging.

In 2011 the American historian Albert Winkler published an article in the „Swiss American Historical Society Review“, Vol. 47, No. 2, June 2011: Henry Wirz and Andersonville: The Career of the Most Controversial Swiss American. One of the key sentences is:

The tragedy of Andersonville still discredits the nation, and many men in the Union and Confederacy must share the blame for the high death rates in that prison, but Wirz was unfairly singled out for punishment. Henry Wirz was a flawed man who did his best to alleviate suffering and safe lives at Andersonville, and he is no stain on the honor of Swiss Americans.

In the meantime Albert Winkler wrote another article on this matter which was recently published in the „Swiss American Historical Society Review“, Vol. 50, No. 3, November 2014: Henry Wirz and the Tragedy of Andersonville: A Question of Responsibility. Please note the conclusion:

With so much guilt to be shared, the prosecution and execution of Wirz was unjustified. Of all these men, Henry Wirz was probably the least responsible for the high mortality at Andersonville. In fact, he likely deserves high praise for doing for what he could to improve the desperate conditions in the prison, and he probably saved many Union prisoners who would have perished without his efforts.”

I again thank Mr. Winkler very much for his thorough historical research and for the permission to distribute his article electronically (please see attachment!).

With best regards, H. L. Wirz.

American Legion: Second chances for Jihadists must stop

 Via Joe

By Michael D. Helm

Most Americans do not know who Ali al-Marri is and it is my sincere hope
that they never find out because of another horrendous attack.  Nonetheless,
it is extremely alarming that not only has our government released the
convicted al-Qaeda operative from U.S. custody to Qatar, but that it has
also gone largely unnoticed by the mainstream media.

Picked up for a routine traffic violation just a few weeks after the 9/11
attacks,  al-Marri ominously arrived in the United States on Sept. 10, 2001.
After police discovered he was already on a federal watch list, he was
arrested and charged with providing material support or resources to al
Qaeda.  In fact, 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed described al-Marri
as "the perfect sleeper agent because he has studied in the United States,
had no criminal record, and had a family with whom he could travel."

First held as an enemy combatant, a U.S. court later ruled that al-Marri was
entitled to a federal hearing. In a 2009 plea agreement, he pled guilty in
exchange for a 15-year prison sentence and was held in the United States.
Released earlier this month to his native country of Qatar, he can expect
plenty of company in that part of the world as President Obama has called on
Congress to lift remaining restrictions on detainee transfers so he can
close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

To be fair, the release of dangerous detainees is not new and hundreds were
released during the Bush administration. But at a time when ISIS is
committing the most gruesome atrocities imaginable, it is the precise
opposite of what we should be doing.

In 2006, a delegation from The American Legion visited the detention
facility at Guantanamo. Tom Bock, who was the organization's national
commander at the time, reported a very different environment than the
description offered by many detainee lawyers and agenda-driven human rights

"The United States may be the only country whose captured enemy combatants
gain weight during their detention," Bock said at the time, while taking
note of the excellent prison cuisine. "The members of Joint Task Force
Guantanamo are absolute professionals. One guard had feces thrown on him
just before we arrived. He calmly showered and changed his uniform. The
abuse at Guantanamo is coming from the detainees, not our military."

Bock added that the detainee medical clinic provided excellent health care,
far superior to what most of the detainees were able to receive in their
home countries prior to their capture.

According to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, 30 percent of
released Guantanamo detainees have engaged in further terrorist activities.
One such man was Abdallah al-Ajmi. Captured in Pakistan in December 2001,
al-Ajmi was a Taliban fighter and self-proclaimed Jihadist. He was
transferred to Guantanamo and remained there until his release in 2005.

While at Gitmo, he told a military review board that he wanted to kill as
many Americans as possible. Nonetheless, despite a history of violence at
Gitmo, he was returned to his native country Kuwait. According to the
Washington Post, on  March 23, 2008 al-Ajmi drove a pick-up truck full of
explosives through an Iraqi military base entrance point in Mosul. The blast
killed 13 Iraqi soldiers and wounded 42 civilians.

As the nation's largest organization of wartime veterans, The American
Legion believes it has a solemn responsibility to do what it can to keep our
country safe. We do not practice partisan politics, but we do believe in
speaking truth to power, regardless of the consequences.

Mr. President, freeing terrorists and closing Guantanamo is a terrible idea.

Work begins to raise CSS Georgia from Savannah River

Via Bob

Divers and military salvage crews will spend the next nine months raising what's left of an armored Confederate warship that's been rotting at the bottom of the Savannah River for 150 years.

After years of planning, the Army Corps of Engineers announced Thursday that work has begun to recover the remains of the ironclad CSS Georgia. The ship was scuttled by its own Confederate crew to prevent its capture by Gen. William T. Sherman when his Union army took Savannah in December 1864.

The shipwreck lies in pieces beneath 30 feet of water where the river winds east of downtown Savannah. Only two big pieces of its armored siding remain intact, the largest being about 64-by-24 feet. Otherwise the riverbed is scattered with artifacts and debris — railroad ties that formed the ship's iron armor, four cannons, pieces of the ship's steam engine, unexploded cannonballs and small fasteners — that will eventually be raised to the surface.
