The Progressive-Muslim- Axis

The Constitution is not a suicide pact. ~ Justice Robert Jackson

Paraphrasing the telling words of Justice Jackson who made that comment in a 1949 dissenting opinion, Terminiello v. Chicago, I would say of today’s times, particularly in light of the current insurrection in Egypt – The Constitution is not a suicide pact, but the Progressive-Muslim Axis is.

The world stands at the brink – the Progressive/Muslim Axis vs. Natural Law/Christianity. Indeed, developments in Egypt, Tunisia and Jordan may indeed be that fateful domino that causes civilizations to collide into global catastrophe. Muslims want to invite apocalypse to set the stage for the so-called Twelfth Imam. Since the 1880s, progressives have provoked societal chaos through a litany of diabolical ideas and welfare policies designed to plunge America and the West into utopian socialism as a pretext to destroy Christianity, Natural Law and the Constitution while forcing society into a globalist Marxist state.

Heads the Progressive-Muslim Axis wins – tails Western civilization, Christianity and Israel lose.

Predictably, the litany of what Lenin ca

Blankets of Deception

Its snowing here in Oklahoma. It has been snowing across the Heartland of America for several days now, with the snow stretching across the continent into New England. It is cold. It is dangerous. It is beautiful. Underneath the snow lays a layer of ice and beneath that is the dirty pavement, full of sand and ice melt which will soon win its way to the surface, causing the pristine snow to turn dark and unsightly. We’ll be eager to see it go – the snow – to melt away into the atmosphere or the soil or wherever used, unwanted snow goes.
Our weather forecasters knew it was coming and they warned us, days in advance, so we were prepared and even eager to embrace the beauty of the snow. Along with the warning of the storm was the unprecedented closing of businesses – even state offices and schools – prior to the storm actually arriving. It was an anticipation of what was sure to come. We listened. We paid heed. We are warm and comfortable, our tummies full and our books stacked up beside our padded chairs as we wait out the cold.
Across the globe in Egypt there is another storm brewing. But this storm is hot and very dangerous. It started several days ago in Tunisia and now it has swept its way into Egypt bringing with it damage and danger. Unfortunately, this storm is not going to go away – it is not going to melt into the ground or the atmosphere. Instead it is going to eventually coat the soil of Egypt and other Muslim countries in blood, when those who really want democracy are forced to accept Sharia law and leadership or die.
We are told ‘there was no warning’ but that isn’t true. The warning has been going forth for the last five or six years – actually since 2005 when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the former mayor of Tehran with little following or stature, suddenly burst on the world scene as the president of Iran, elected by a proclaimed landslide! A small man, with a small man complex determined to usher in evil by creating chaos in the world so the 12th Imam can “return” to the world and bring peace. He told us in the United Nations. He has told us in the press. He has told us in every speech he has given that he intends to kill the Jews because they are the worst calamity that has ever happened to the world. Once they are gone, then he’ll start taking care of us – the western part of the globe.
He – the puppet of the Ayatollah and his cronies – has set about working his deceptively evil plan. First it was Gaza with its democratic elections that brought Hamas, a terrorist organization, into power over this once beautiful garden of Israel sacrificed to the so-called Palestinians. Then there was Lebanon and the Second Lebanon War of 2006 – since then Hizbollah has been in power in Lebanon, a country once friendly with Israel. And the evil scheme marches on. Disruption and unrest is everywhere as terror continues to wind its way through the Middle East and through our neighbors to the south – Mexico. The same evil. The same hideous terror. The same hatred is ruling both parts of the globe now and will continue to grow as it makes its way through the Middle East and the United States by causing confusion in an uneducated media that can’t see beyond the tip of its own turned up nose.
Dot-to-dot-to-dot. As clearly as a child’s drawing takes shape, we’ve been watching the events in Egypt with interest, while they drown out the horrible death and destruction going on in Mexico. We’ve been watching and listening to our stammering president and secretary of state – yes, I know I didn’t properly punctuate their titles – as they make their confused demands on Hosni Mubarak to step down and do it right now so they, “the peacefully demonstrating Egyptians, can have a democratic election — immediately!” And, we’ve watched while the devil’s playmate Mohamed ElBaradei, that amazing Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, offers himself up as a candidate-of-the-people. He says he doesn’t really want to be president of Egypt but if that is what the people want, then he must step up and honor their demands. How gracious. He should be able to rise to the occasion beautifully, just as he has as the head of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) when he declared Iran was playing nice and really isn’t using atomic energy to build bombs, but peaceful energy plants!

Well, perhaps for those who are familiar with your work and with your book, it is not a big surprise for them that Obama has endorsed a role for the Muslim Brotherhood in a new, post-Mubarak government for Egypt. I would like to narrow in with you today about the Muslim Brotherhood’s penetration of the Obama administration. What can you tell us about this Islamist penetration of the White House?

U.S. ‘held secret meeting with Muslim Brotherhood’

Discussed fall of Egypt with group dedicated to Islam’s global spread

By Aaron Klein The Egyptian government has information a diplomat at the U.S. embassy in Cairo secretly met yesterday with a senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, the nation’s major Islamist opposition group, WND has learned.

The topic of the meeting was the future of Egypt following the “fall” of President Hosni Mubarak, an Egyptian intelligence official told WND.

The claim comes amid charges from Cairo that the Obama administration has been encouraging the protests rocking Egypt and targeting the rule of Mubarak, a key U.S. ally in the Middle East.

The Egyptian intelligence official told WND his government has information of a meeting that took place yesterday between Issam El-Erian, a senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Frank Wisner, a former U.S. ambassador to Egypt.

The Obama administration dispatched Wisner to Egypt this past weekend to report to the State Department and White House a general sense of the situation in the embattled country

Obama endorses Muslim Brotherhood

by Hillel Fendel For the first time, a U.S. government supports granting a government role to an extremist Islamic organization: the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

On Monday, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Egypt’s new government will have to include a “whole host of important non-secular actors.” Most prominent among these is clearly the Muslim Brotherhood – which has made Islamic world domination one of its ultimate goals. It also opposes Egypt’s 30-year-old peace treaty with Israel.

Gibbs said the Muslim Brotherhood must reject violence and recognize democratic goals for the U.S. to be comfortable with it assuming a role in the new government. This caveat does not significantly alter the new American approach, which is very different than that of the previous Administration, in which George W. Bush pushed Mubarak for democratic reforms but never publicly accepted a role for Islamists.

How the rioting in Egypt and Tunisia will user in the new era of global food crisis

Political risk has returned with a vengeance. The first food revolutions of our Malthusian era have exposed the weak grip of authoritarian regimes in poor countries that import grain, whether in North Africa today or parts of Asia tomorrow.

If you insist on joining the emerging market party at this stage of the agflation blow-off, avoid countries with an accelerating gap between rich and poor. Cairo’s EGX stock index has dropped 20pc in nine trading sessions.

Events have moved briskly since a Tunisian fruit vendor with a handcart set fire to himself six weeks ago, and in doing so lit the fuse that has detonated Egypt and threatens to topple the political order of the Maghreb, Yemen, and beyond.

Egypt demonstrates how to silence the internet

“If you have a relatively diverse telecoms market and a very much meshed Internet topology then it’s much more difficult to do than if you have the traditional telecoms structure of two decades ago and they control all the international connections. Obviously that creates a choke point,”
The move by Egyptian authorities to seal off the country almost entirely from the Internet shows how easily a state can isolate its people when telecoms providers are few and compliant. Egyptian demonstrators hold up placards during a protest in central Cairo to demand the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak and calling for reforms.

In an attempt to stop the frenzied online spread of dissent against President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule, not only Facebook and Twitter but the entire Internet was shut down overnight, leaving some 20 million users stranded.

Hundreds of service providers offer connections in Egypt, but just four own the infrastructure – Link Egypt, Vodafone/Raya [VOD-LN 177.414 -0.90 (-0.5%)], Telecom Egypt and Etisalat Misr.

Daniel Karrenberg, chief scientist at RIPE NCC, a European not-for-profit Internet infrastructure forum, says immature markets with few providers can achieve such shutdowns relatively easily.

Mubarak’s son flees with wife and children to London

Mubarak’s son Gemal flees to London with family

David V. Dafinoiu

Egyptian and Arabic internet sites were reporting Wednesday, Jan. 25 that Housni Mubarak’s son and chosen successor as Egyptian president secretly took himself and family out of the country Tuesday by way of the military airfield in West Cairo at the peak of anti-government riots in Egyptian cities.

Twitter also carried an unconfirmed report that Suzanne Mubarak, Egypt’s first lady, was identified by airport workers on arrival at Heathrow airport, London. No source was cited.

If confirmed, Gemal Mubarak’s defection would attest to deep cracks in the 82-year old president’s regime, the reverse of the prevailing view in the West that the regime is in no danger of being overthrown by the protest movement sweeping the country. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she believed the government was stable. Yet Wednesday, the Egyptian pound fell sharply against the US dollar and the stock market tumbled more than 4 percent.

Egypt’s church bombed New Years 21 left dead

A powerful bomb exploded in front of a crowded Coptic Christian church a half hour into the New Year early Saturday, hitting worshipers emerging from a holiday Mass in the Egyptian city of Alexandria and killing at least 21 people in an attack that raised suspicions of an al-Qaida role.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak vowed to track down those behind the attack, saying “we will cut off the hands of terrorists and those plotting against Egypt’s security.”

“This terrorist act has shaken the conscience of the nation,” he said in a statement, adding that “all Egypt was targeted, and terrorism does not distinguish between Copt and Muslim.”

Police initially said the blast came from an explosives-packed car parked outside the Saints Church. But the Interior Ministry later said it was more likely from a suicide bomber on foot.

This week in History: Operation Moses begins

By MICHAEL OMER-MAN
Although Ethiopian aliya has taken over 25 years, it pales in comparison to the 40 years its namesake required to lead Exodus from Egypt.
Talkbacks (1) On November 21, 1984, a seven-week clandestine operation to bring Falash Mura Ethiopian Jews to Israel began. The unprecedented undertaking, code-named “Operation Moses,” was a three-way collaboration between the Mossad, the CIA and Sudanese State Security (SSS) to smuggle nearly 8,000 Falash Mura out of refugee camps in Sudan in a massive airlift to Israel. Operation Moses turned out to be the beginning of large-scale, official Israeli efforts to facilitate a Falash Mura aliyah that continues to this day.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel ruled that Ethiopian Jews had the right to immigrate to the country under the Law of Return in 1975. A few years later, small-scale efforts had already begun to bring individual and small groups of Falash Mura to Israel. However, these efforts, undertaken through semi-official and sometimes illegal channels quickly became impractical and too difficult to continue. A larger-scale covert operation would be necessary.

In 1981, significant numbers of Falash Mura, whose Jewish heritage goes back 3,000 years, began an onerous and often deadly trek, joining several hundred thousand of their countrymen who had already fled to Sudan to escape the virulent famine that was plaguing Ethiopia. However, most of those who would eventually be smuggled out of Sudan in Operation Moses did not make the journey until 1983-84. Conditions on the way to Sudan were particularly brutal and an estimated 4,000 of those hoping to make it to Israel died of malnutrition
