Fear threat – Muslim or Christian?

Democrats think Christians bigger threat than Muslims

A new poll reveals that 45 percent of the Democrats who responded believe that Christians are a greater threat to America than Muslims.

No shock that 72 percent of atheists agree.

But the surprise is that 18 percent of those who consider themselves ” very conservative” agree.

As do 29 percent of Protestants.

And 23 percent of Catholics.

Interestingly, the sample of Muslims was very small, but 100 percent said it is Muslims who are the greater danger.

The results are from a new WND/Clout poll by Clout Research, a national opinion research firm in Columbus, Ohio. The telephone survey of registered voters was taken Dec. 18-27, except for the holiday, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.35 percentage points.

Trust the government? Maybe you shouldn’t. Read the details in “Lies the Government Told You,” by Judge Andrew Napolitano.

Poll chief Fritz Wenzel said, “A surprising finding in the survey shows that one in three respondents said they believe Christians pose a greater threat to America than do Muslims. Among Democrats, 45 percent said Christians are more dangerous than are Muslims, while 36 percent of political independents said the same. Among Republicans, 20 percent said Christians are the greater threat.”

The question asked?

“Which do you believe pose the greatest threat to America – Muslims or Christians?”

The questions I might have asked?

Which is a bigger threat to America – a Muslim in the White House or a Muslim posing as a Christian?

Which is a bigger threat to America – the threat of radicalization from a mosque or from a church?

Which is a bigger threat to America – lone wolf Americans who fear their government or sleeper cell Islamic terrorists who wish to attack high profile targets to inflict fear on average Americans?

Here’s a test for you. Take a stroll through Hamtramck or Dearborn, Michigan with an anti-Muslim shirt on as opposed to walking through an NRA convention wearing an ISIS shirt on. Let’s see who comes out unscathed. Or if you’re feeling particularly chippy, take a walk through the hood in Chicago with a KKK shirt on and see how things work out for you.

Fact is that receiving some scowls and unappreciative glares are far different than receiving a double tap.

Jesus – the domestic extremist?

In this holiday season, John Whitehead ponders what it would have been like if Jesus were born today. Jesus may have still died for our sins, but it wouldn’t have been on a cross. More likely would be a prison cell.

What If Jesus Had Been Born 2,000 Years Later in the American Police State?

By John W. Whitehead
December 21, 2015

“Two thousand years later … the memory of the revolutionary zealot who walked across Galilee gathering an army of disciples with the goal of establishing the Kingdom of God on earth, the magnetic preacher who defied the authority of the Temple priesthood in Jerusalem, the radical Jewish nationalist who challenged the Roman occupation and lost, has been almost completely lost to history.” ― Reza Aslan, religious scholar

The Christmas narrative of a baby born in a manger is a familiar one.

The Roman Empire, a police state in its own right, had ordered that a census be conducted. Joseph and his pregnant wife Mary traveled to the little town of Bethlehem so that they could be counted. There being no room for the couple at any of the inns, they stayed in a stable, where Mary gave birth to a baby boy. That boy, Jesus, would grow up to undermine the political and religious establishment of his day and was eventually crucified as a warning to others not to challenge the powers-that-be.

But what if Jesus, the revered preacher, teacher, radical and prophet, had been born 2,000 years later? How would Jesus’ life have been different had he be born and raised in the American police state?

Consider the following if you will.

Had Jesus been born in the year 2015…

Rather than traveling to Bethlehem for a census, Jesus’ parents would have been mailed a 28-page American Community Survey, a mandatory government questionnaire documenting their habits, household inhabitants, work schedule, and even how many toilets were in their home, etc. The penalty for not responding to this invasive survey would have resulted in a fine of $5,000.

Instead of being born in a manger, Jesus might have been born at home. Rather than wise men and shepherds bringing gifts, however, the baby’s parents might have been forced to ward off visits from state social workers intent on prosecuting them for the home birth. One couple in Washington had all three of their children removed after social services objected to the two youngest being birthed in an unassisted home delivery.

Had Jesus been born in a hospital, his blood and DNA would have been taken and entered into a government biobank without his parents’ knowledge or consent. While most states require newborn screening, a growing number are indefinitely holding onto that genetic material long-term for research, analysis and purposes yet to be disclosed.

Then again, had his parents been undocumented immigrants, they and the newborn baby might have been shuffled to a profit-driven, private detention center for illegals. There’s quite a lot of money to be made from imprisoning immigrants, especially when taxpayers are footing the bill.

Once in school, Jesus would have been drilled in lessons of compliance and obedience to government authorities, all the while learning little about his own rights. And if he dared to challenge school officials, he might have found himself suspended under a school zero tolerance policy that punishes minor infractions (such as doodling or talking in class) as harshly as more serious offenses (such as bringing a weapon to class).

According to scripture, Jesus, at the age of twelve, wandered the temple courts in Jerusalem alone and unsupervised. Today, had Jesus disappeared for a few hours let alone days, his parents would have been handcuffed, arrested and jailed for parental negligence. Parents across the country have been arrested for far less “offenses” such as allowing their children to walk to the park unaccompanied and play in their front yard alone.

Rather than disappearing from the history books from his early teenaged years to adulthood, Jesus’ movements and personal data—including his biometrics—would have been documented, tracked, monitored and filed by governmental agencies and corporations such as Google and Microsoft. Incredibly, 95 percent of school districts share their student records with outside companies contracted to manage the data.

If Jesus were to ever make contact with the likes of John the Baptist, he would have been flagged for surveillance because of his association with a prominent activist, peaceful or otherwise. Since 9/11, the FBI has actively carried out surveillance and intelligence-gathering operations on a broad range of activist groups, from animal rights groups to poverty relief and anti-war organizations.

Rather than being permitted to live as an itinerant preacher, Jesus might have found himself threatened with arrest for daring to live off the grid or sleeping outside. In fact, the number of cities that have resorted to criminalizing homelessness by enacting bans on camping, sleeping in vehicles, loitering and begging in public has doubled in recent years.

Had his travels taken him from community to community, Jesus might have been reported to government officials as “suspicious” under the Department of Homeland Security’s “See Something, Say Something” programs. Many states, including New York, are providing individuals with phone apps that allow them to take photos of suspicious activity and report them to their state Intelligence Center, where they are reviewed and forwarded to law-enforcement agencies.

Perceived as a dissident and a potential threat to the government’s power, Jesus might have had government spies planted among his followers in order to monitor his activities, report on his movements, and entrap him into breaking the law.

Jesus’ anti-government views would certainly have resulted in him being labeled a domestic extremist. Law enforcement agencies are being trained to recognize signs of anti-government extremism during interactions with potential extremists who share a “belief in the approaching collapse of government and the economy.”

Assuming Jesus used the internet to spread his radical message of peace and love, he might have found his blog posts infiltrated by government spies attempting to undermine his integrity, discredit him or plant incriminating information online about him. At the very least, he would have had his website hacked and his email monitored.

Had Jesus attempted to feed large crowds of people, he would have been threatened with arrest for violating various ordinances prohibiting the distribution of food without a permit. Florida officials arrested a 90-year-old man for feeding the homeless on a public beach.

Had Jesus spoken publicly about his 40 days in the desert and his conversations with the devil, he might have been labeled mentally ill and detained in a psych ward against his will for a mandatory involuntary psychiatric hold with no access to family or friends. One Virginia man was arrested, strip searched, handcuffed to a table, diagnosed as having “mental health issues,” and locked up for five days in a mental health facility against his will apparently because of his slurred speech and unsteady gait.

Without a doubt, had Jesus attempted to overturn tables in a Jewish temple and raged against the materialism of religious institutions, he would have been charged with a hate crime. Currently, 45 states and the federal government have hate crime laws on the books.

Rather than having armed guards capture Jesus in a public place, government officials would have ordered that a SWAT team carry out a raid on Jesus and his followers, complete with flash-bang grenades and military equipment. There are upwards of 80,000 such SWAT team raids carried out every year, many on unsuspecting Americans who have no defense against such government invaders, even when such raids are done in error.

Instead of being detained by Roman guards, Jesus might have been made to “disappear” into a secret government detention center where he would have been interrogated, tortured and subjected to all manner of abuses. Chicago police “disappeared” more than 7,000 people into a secret, off-the-books interrogation warehouse at Homan Square.

Charged with treason and labeled a domestic terrorist, Jesus might have been sentenced to a life-term in a private prison where he would have been forced to provide slave labor for corporations or put to death by way of the electric chair or a lethal mixture of drugs.

Either way, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, whether Jesus had been born in our modern age or his own, he still would have died at the hands of a police state.

Obama strategy to defeat the JV team revealed

Keep calm and carry on, folks: Obama insists ISIS can’t ‘destroy the United States’ and tells Americans to ‘keep things in perspective’

POTUS is a bit cranky. Apparently he doesn’t like any criticism of his ‘strategy’ to defeat ISIS, or ISIL as he calls them. His advice is to keep calm, business as usual. ISIS/ISIL is nothing more than an organization taking up space in the deserts of Syria and Iraq.

‘ISIS is a virulent, nasty organization that has gained a foothold in ungoverned spaces effectively in Syria and parts of western Iraq.’

Accordingly, we need to take on ISIS/ISIL with kid gloves so we don’t rile them up any more.

Obama also strongly defended his policy of engaging with the IS army ‘appropriately and in a way that is consistent with American values

The Obama strategy on ISIS/ISIL is quite simple.

  1.  Stop climate change. It is man-made global warming that has led to the economic conditions that force the impoverished to turn to ISIS/ISIL for a way out.
  2. Gun control. If we take away the weapons and ammo from private citizens than ISIS/ISIL will have no way to attain them.
  3. Close GITMO. The U.S. has been the evil enabler of ISIS/ISIL recruitment agencies due to our global conduct.

That’s it. Problem solved. Just keep on keeping on. And how convenient that the solution to defeating ISIS/ISIL just happens to be several core agenda items of the Obama Administration. Almost as if it were all by design.

Can it work? Of course not. Don’t be silly. But then, to be fair, these 3 items were never really intended to. They are merely for consumption by sheep and kool-aid drinkers.

Turns out that ISIS/ISIL is just another Obama agenda item. That being any Islam is good. Take the good with the bad. If it knocks America off its imperialist ‘exceptionalism’ perch, than it’s bloodshed well spent. At least in the eyes of Obama. If anyone thinks that this POTUS will take on muslims to get them to police their own, they’re in la-la land. And the ideologue marches on…

Climate change ‘father’ says Paris agreement a sham

James Hansen, father of climate change awareness, calls Paris talks ‘a fraud’

The Guardian ran this story yesterday to highlight that even a global warming pioneer believes the Paris agreement is a fraud.

“It’s a fraud really, a fake,” he says, rubbing his head. “It’s just bullshit for them to say: ‘We’ll have a 2C warming target and then try to do a little better every five years.’ It’s just worthless words. There is no action, just promises. As long as fossil fuels appear to be the cheapest fuels out there, they will be continued to be burned.”

Spellchek has been stating this for years. If you’re in bed with the global warming crowd for the ‘right’ reasons, you’re delusional. The ‘wrong’ reasons are the profiteers and supporters of global governance. This is just another tool in the fight for wealth and power. The true global warming believers such as James Hansen really believe man is destroying the planet and seek a halt to excessive carbon emissions.

Where they go astray is in their belief that governments of the world hold the solution. Take the Hansen article. He breaks down why the Paris agreement is a sham and that Obama has missed his chance to alter history. He also understands the economics in that fossil fuels are the cheapest form of energy. Yet he falls in line with so many that believe they can artificially price the market out of business. He even goes a step further to show that he hasn’t learned anything from the progression of the climate change talks by throwing his support behind China to be the world’s savior.

There is a positive note to end on, however. Global emissions have somewhat stalled and Hansen believes China, the world’s largest emitter, will now step up to provide the leadership lacking from the US. A submerged Fifth Avenue and deadly heatwaves aren’t an inevitability.

“I think we will get there because China is rational,” Hansen says. “Their leaders are mostly trained in engineering and such things, they don’t deny climate change and they have a huge incentive, which is air pollution. It’s so bad in their cities they need to move to clean energies. They realise it’s not a hoax. But they will need co-operation.”

When will the global warming activists ever realize that politicians are always going to be more interested in their own wealth and power than that of saving the planet for future generations? Scientists are far more likely to put principle ahead of personal profit. Doesn’t mean they all do as we’ve seen with the data manipulators who do still chase the almighty buck first and foremost. However, I would bet the house that far more of them are more interested in the details of their craft rather than their legacy. Unfortunately, their expertise doesn’t translate into the political arena well.

Now, Spellchek would never condone this but if I were a true global warming believer rather than a profiteer, I would immediately take to aggressive action. In other words, break the law. After all, the end is near, is it not? Who has time to sit back and watch governments make and break agreements all the while they are counting the money? Start blowing up power plants and pipelines. Take out the oil fields and tankers. Destroy the auto plants.

Global warming must be stopped and reversed TODAY! When you look at the laundry lists of fallout from global warming we’ve been sold on for years now, you must agree that a few casualties from violence are far better than the much larger amount from non-action. You also must agree that the worldwide economic collapse from such actions would be well worth it in the long run. A few decades of economic turmoil are a small price to pay for sustaining the planet for all the generations to come.

Any of the climate change supporters who disagree are just paper tigers or are on the receiving end of the profits. To believe that non-binding, non-action government agreements are the solution puts you squarely in the middle of the camp of suckers.

So get off your asses and start blowing up some infrastructure. We need doers in this world, not talkers.

The art of deception

Who is really delusional? Is it President Obama who can’t utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism’? Or is it the hordes of pundits who constantly appear baffled at the actions of Obama? They simply can’t understand why Obama can’t see what they see and endlessly search for an explanation. Of course this includes the lineup at FOX as well as most conservative media voices. They can surgically detail all that is wrong with the words and actions of Obama but are then stymied as to why.

Why not simply take him at his word? Do you really think he merely holds on to his childhood fond memories of Islam? So much so that he will endanger the country and the world with his inaction? No, he is pro-Muslim in everything he does because he is one. In his own words.

Why is this so difficult? Because he claims to be Christian? Because to call him Muslim means you are a ‘birther’ and a racist? Usually we can only judge another based upon some limited observations. Not with Barry Soetoro. He has laid it out quite clearly for us both in words and actions.

If the puzzled pundits would simply see the forest in front of them despite the trees they would have their answer. Oh, by the way, many actually do but can’t say so in their profession due to the repercussions.

Will Obama come clean once he is out of office? Time will tell. In the meantime he will do all he can to ensure that Islam is expanded around the globe. As any good Muslim should.
