Friday Afternoon Roundup – The Long Way Around

by Daniel Greenfield on Friday, August 15th, 2014

LEARNING FROM HISTORY

ISIS represents a familiar Saudi tactic. It’s the revival of the Ikhwan, the armies of Wahhabi bandit raiders who united Saudi Arabia under the House of Saud by terrorizing Sunni rivals and Shiite Muslims. The ISIS atrocities of today were business as usual for the Ikhwan who referred to other Muslims as infidels, invaded Iraq, Kuwait and Jordan, killed some 400,000 people and created a million refugees.

(Similar events had also taken place earlier such as the Wahhabi sack of Kerbala in Iraq in 1802. A contemporary description relates, “The elderly, women, and children—everybody died by the barbarians’ sword.”)

The Ikhwan, like Al Qaeda, turned on the Saudis and their attacks on British territory attracted Imperial attention. The Saudis used British air strikes to put down the Ikhwan in the 1920s and transformed what was left of them into the country’s National Guard. This pattern becomes familiar to us if we swap out the Ikhwan for Al Qaeda in its various forms. The difference is that modern technology and oil wealth have given the Wahhabi raiders a truly global reach as we discovered on September 11.

CAUSE AND EFFECT

 The special weapons and tactics concept originated in the late 1960s as a result of several sniping incidents against civilians and police officers around the country. Many of these incidents occurred in Los Angeles during and after the Watts Riot.

If anyone could be labeled as the “founder” of LAPD’s SWAT unit, it would be John Nelson, a former Marine and Vietnam War veteran who joined the LAPD as a patrol officer.

John had served in a USMC elite Force Recon unit during WWII and based the SWAT concept on the Recon units, believing that a small squad of highly trained police officers armed with special weapons would be more effective in a riotous situation than a massive police response.

On Dec. 8, 1969, the department called on SWAT to help serve a warrant for illegal weapons at the Black Panther headquarters.

The heavily armed Black Panthers resisted and attempted to shoot it out with 40 SWAT officers. Thousands of rounds of ammunition were fired during a four-hour siege, resulting in the wounding of three Panthers and three officers.

Comrade Mandela’s Secret Life

by Cliff Kincaid on Saturday, December 7th, 2013

This is article 39 of 45 in the topic Memorials

The South African Communist Party is admitting Nelson Mandela was a high-ranking member. Will the media report these facts? Or will the “myth” continue to prevail?

My friend Victor Lasky used to write books about liberal or left-wing figures that carried the name of the person and the subtitle, “The Man and the Myth.” He would compare the coverage of a political figure with the truth. The coverage of the death of Nelson Mandela has focused mostly on the myth. Key facts are being omitted, including Mandela’s secret membership in the South African Communist Party (SACP), which may shed light on the future of South Africa.

It’s very rare in all of the coverage, from Fox News to MSNBC, to find any reference to the central role that communism played in Mandela’s life. The evidence shows not only that he was a secret member of the South African Communist Party, but that he continued to deny membership in the party throughout his life. The cover-up is relevant to South Africa’s future and the role the SACP plays in the current government.

Mandela is being credited with trying to avoid a bloodbath after the black majority took power. But his denial of membership in the South African Communist Party, which turned out to be a lie, deserves attention and comment. What was he trying to hide? And was there more to it than mere membership in the SACP?

The SACP itself is not hiding the truth. In a tribute to “a true revolutionary,” its website declares, “At his arrest in August 1962, Nelson Mandela was not only a member of the then underground South African Communist Party, but was also a member of our Party’s Central Committee. To us as South African communists, Cde [Comrade] Mandela shall forever symbolize the monumental contribution of the SACP in our liberation struggle. The contribution of communists in the struggle to achieve the South African freedom has very few parallels in the history of our country. After his release from prison in 1990, Cde Madiba became a great and close friend of the communists till his last days.”

As president of South Africa, Mandela spoke to the South African Communist Party on its 75th anniversary, referring to its “alliance” with the African National Congress and others ruling South Africa.

Some of the truth about Mandela’s secret life as a communist has emerged in various books over the years.

In Mandela: The Authorized Biography, Anthony Sampson writes that Mandela started out as an anti-communist but “was impressed by The Communist Manifesto and by the biographies of South African Marxists like Paul Bunting and Bill Andrews.” Sampson went on to write, “He was struck by the Soviet Union’s support for liberation movements throughout the world, and by the relentless logic of dialectical materialism, which he felt sweeping away the superstitions and inherited beliefs of his childhood…”  One of those beliefs was Christianity, and Sampson writes that Mandela “experienced some pangs at abandoning the Christian beliefs that had fortified his childhood…”

A photo in the book shows Mandela and his second wife, Winnie, at a 1958 wedding ceremony “attended by a few close friends, including the communist writer Michael Harmel.”

Harmel “joined our Party in 1939 and for the rest of his life the Party was his master,” states a tribute on the website of the South African Communist Party.

Sharia’s Sticks and Stones

by Daniel Greenfield on Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

This is article 110 of 117 in the topic Muslims/Koran

The BBC’s Panorama series has gone undercover at Sharia councils where Islamic law is doled out in the state within a state within the multicultural bureaucracy to discover that the dispensers of Islamic law have failed abused women. Failing abused women is the nice genteel way that lefties use to mean that the judicial system of a religion built on abusing women is perpetuating those abuses in the UK.

Similarly Comrade Delta failed the woman he raped. And the Socialist Workers Party failed her by putting the rape to a vote. Jimmy Savile failed a great many children and Islam has failed to uphold the standards that the defenders of multiculturalism somehow expect from religious leaders out of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

According to the head of the UK’s ‘Equality and Human Rights Commission’, Muslims “are doing their damnedest” to develop an Islam compatible with liberal democracy. And if you don’t believe him, then just ask Tony Blair who not only reads the Koran every day but also marvels at how progressive it is.

Forget all the fussing over Muslim immigration and terrorism. The future looks bright for Britain. We’re probably only a short while away from the first female Imam and drive-through abortion clinics in local mosques. Mecca is going to host its first swimsuit competition on its black rock and Ramadan will unite with Gay Pride Day for a parade that no one will ever be able to forget.

At The Guardian, where left is always right, Musleh Faradhi assures us that Sharia courts are not about to displace English law or flog Prince Charles as an adulterer in front of Buckingham Palace. “Women who come to this country with little or no English and are then discriminated against by their own husbands or relatives has nothing to do with sharia, but rather with traditions and culture,” says Faradhi. “This should not be used as a stick with which to beat sharia councils.”

That sounds fair enough except when you remember that Sharia councils are usually the ones who beat women with sticks, rather than the other way around.

The reasons why the organs of Islamic law beat women with sticks have nothing to do with Islam, but with tradition, culture, the equinox, the price of tea in Shanghai and how many Djinns can dance on the head of a stickpin. And it would be a real shame if Sharia’s habit of beating women with sticks were to be used to beat Sharia councils with sticks. When it comes to Muslims, turnabout is never fair play. Even when the sticks are metaphorical ones and the ones that they use are all too real.

According to Tony Blair, the Koran is, “ahead of its time in attitudes to marriage, women and governance”. This claim might only be true if the Koran had been written in the stone age and even then the educated Cro-Magnon would have taken one sniff at the Koran and opted for something more progressive. Like the Daily Mail or Benny Hill.

In the progressive words of the Koran, “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other.” (Koran 4:34). It’s hard to argue with that.

Vladimir Putin Wants to Revive Stalin-Era Physical Evaluation Program for Students

by Doug Powers on Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

This is article 942 of 1257 in the topic International

gtoUncle Joe called it GTO, which I think is Russian for “Let’s Move, Comrade!”

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has called for the revival of the Soviet-era physical evaluation program that required all schoolchildren to pass fitness tests.

Putin, a judo enthusiast and a regular swimmer, said Wednesday that the restoration of GTO, the Russian acronym for Ready for Labor and Defense, would teach children to “to stand up for themselves, their family and, in the final run, the Fatherland.”

GTO, which was introduced in 1931 under Soviet dictator Josef Stalin’s rule, required all schoolchildren to regularly pass physical training tests. Those managing to qualify would receive silver- or gold-colored badges.

I can’t believe Michael Bloomberg and FLOTUS haven’t thought of that. Well, at least not as mandatoryyet.

Obama Vision for America: Part-Time Jobs, $6/gallon Gas, Government Redistribution

by John Lillpop on Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

This is article 750 of 1014 in the topic Obama

Marxist comrade Barack Obama has a vision for America that is unlike any president from the past and, hopefully, unlike any man or woman who may be elected US president in the future.

Essentially, Obama finds American Exceptionalism, the substance and spirit of the US Constitution, the Rule of Law, capitalism, profit, and American culture to be insufferable examples of racism gone amuck.

In his progressive mind, Obama sees all things through the prism of race, and judges everything based on race.

He sees government as a mechanism for correcting the evils of white preeminence and prosperity.

Assets owned by Caucasians are, in Obama’s mind, at least partially the property of others, mostly people of color whom have been abused and exploited to enrich white people.

There is no such thing as “earned” when it comes to property possessed by whites.

Thus, Obama’s vision for America is that of Part-Time Jobs, $6/gallon Gas, Government redistribution.

Is Barack Obama President of all the people?

Don’t be silly!

The definitive explanation of the consequences of Obamacare …

by Stephen Levine on Saturday, June 30th, 2012

This is article 308 of 699 in the topic Healthcare

With Obamacare …

There will not be enough facilities, diagnostic devices and physicians to deal with an additional 30 million new patients being forced into the system. Or face a penalty/tax administered and enforced by the Internal Revenue Service.

To serve this increased patient load, you must, of necessity ration healthcare to deal with a scarcity of resources. This can be done by delay in providing care, denial of care or death occurring before treatment.

Boards, Commissions and Panels …

To those who do not believe that “death panels” currently exist, one need only look at the organ donor program which is a prioritized list of recipients for scarce organs. Unfortunately, under Obamacare, this level of triage will be pushed lower: moving from organ transplants to procedures involving the replacement of artificial limbs, knees,  and implantable devices such as pacemakers, defibrillators, left-ventricle assist devices.

In addition to triage relating to medical necessity, it appears that there may be an additional social component based on a citizen’s (I almost said comrade’s) value to society. Thus disadvantaging both children and the elderly. But predominantly the non-working elderly who have left the labor marketplace and contribute little or nothing to tax-based revenues.

The chart that explains it all …

hc-curve

To contain costs, various panels, commissions and boards will use “best practices,” one-size fits all treatment protocols.  For those in the statistical “norm,” healthcare will be of little issue. For those slightly outside that statistical norm, access to healthcare may be somewhat harder to obtain. And the real outliers needing specialized, individualized and costly medical care will be “out of luck.”

The chances of you obtaining an expensive drug protocol to prolong your life by a month or so will become increasingly slim or non-existent.

Of course, the rich, the politically-connected and those with high-power positions will always be able to circumvent the system and obtain quality healthcare whenever and wherever needed.

An example is the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs whose leftist, hippie behavior delayed his cancer treatment, against medical advice,  in favor of a more holistic dietary approach.

But when even he could not deny that he required an organ transplant, he gamed the system by listing himself in numerous state registries and kept a private jet on standby should he be given clearance for the procedure. <Source>

Had Jobs been an ordinary person, his preexisting conditions would have probably precluded his liver transplant. And had Jobs been treated under Obamacare, he may not have been treated at all.

The big blue pill …

The solution to the problem posed by exponentially-expanding patient base and limited resources is to expand end-of-life counseling and the increasing use of Palliative care which replaced aggressive medical treatment with efforts to keep the patient comfortable in the last stages of his life. Even if it means existing in a drug-induces haze. Look for assisted suicide legislation to become even more popular.

About those insurance companies …

Whoever decided to appoint insurance companies as the gatekeepers to healthcare and incentivized them to control costs should be vilified for destroying the art and science of medicine. Six-minute patient visits are an abomination while simultaneously restricting the practice of qualified nurse-practitioners.

There will be no limits to the power of private insurance companies that will be acting as gatekeepers to healthcare access.

The Composite President

by Selwyn Duke on Monday, May 21st, 2012

This is article 610 of 1014 in the topic Obama

When analyzing Barack Obama’s electoral success a few years back, I pointed out that there was more than white guilt at work. He was, quite frankly, what every good little liberal had always been looking for. Sure, he was “black,” using that old bigoted “one-drop” standard, which, curiously, has been embraced by modern black activists. But more specifically he was half black, with Kenyan pedigree, half white and bore an exotic name. He was mentored by a Marxist, mothered by an atheist (when Momma Dunham was actually around), lived in Indonesia and Hawaii, had Muslim influence and black-church conscience. An attorney and the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, he was purportedly an intellectual.

Obama was well-traveled and thus, by leftist lights, broad and sophisticated; having put down roots in Chicago’s black community, he was also grounded. Heck, his mother even had a boy’s first name (Stanley) before “sex” was “gender” and gender was whatever you wanted it to be. He was a multiculturalist’s dream, a Democrat’s 2008 electoral fantasy. A politically active socialist with the soul of Van Gogh couldn’t have drawn him up better if the candidate had been a composite.

What we couldn’t fully know in 2008, however, is that everything about Obama seems a composite fabrication. With Mr. Barack Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama (PBUH), nothing is as it seems.

Thus, when the administration created a composite woman, Julia, to illustrate how “President Obama’s policies help one woman over her lifetime — and how Mitt Romney would change her story,” it was entirely fitting: a fictional woman used to show how dysfunctional policies would provide fictional help. Also fitting, though, is that “Julia’s” government-dependent life starts at three years old. For we could envision a very different scenario: because of Obama’s policies, Julia is aborted in the womb and never gets to enjoy all those gubmint handouts.

But Obama has a history of inventing women. Recently there were stories about a “New York girlfriend” in the President’s autobiography Dreams from My Father, who was a composite, supposedly, of many girlfriends Obama had during his life. Of course, it’s disclosed in his book that composite characters are used, so fair enough. Except….

John Drew, an Obama contemporary at Occidental College who attested to Obama’s flat-out “Marxist-Leninist” leanings, told me that he never saw or heard about any girlfriends in the man’s life. “Why is this?” asked I.

“Because I don’t think there were any,” replied Drew.

In all fairness, there very well might have been some love interests other than Michelle in Obama’s life. But whatever is in Dreams from My Father (DFMF), it’s more like Fantasies from My Comrade — because Obama, some say, didn’t write it.  Who perhaps did?

Bill Ayers.

This is according to Jack Cashill, a writer who has long been investigating the DFMF matter. His evidence includes the fact that Obama had written little when he was contracted to write the book, had trouble completing works he actually attempted and exhibited poor writing skills when he did slap something together.

Colombian terrorists: FARC vows payback for killing of leader

by Jim Kouri on Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

The killing of FARC's top commander has increased combat between the terrorists and government troops. Credit: DEA/DoJ File Photo

The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, officials announced on Sunday morning that the death of the Marxist group’s top leader, Alfonso Cano, last week would not end its guerrilla war against the Colombian government.

FARC also stated that they will never turn in their weapons to the government, as was requested last week.
In a brief statement published by the Colombian News Service, the terrorist group said that “the only reality that symbolizes the death in combat of comrade Alfonso Cano is the immortal strength of the Colombian people.”
Besides waging a more than 40-year revolution against the Colombian government, FARC is a major drug-trafficking organization that rivals the powerful Mexican drug cartels. There are also allegations that FARC has ties to Islamic terrorist organizations and the government of Venezuela.

On Friday, Guillermo Saenz, known as “Alfonso Cano,” was shot to death in a gun battle with government security forces in the jungles of Cauca province. In addition, two FARC terrorists were also killed in the shootout.

FARC is Colombia’s largest rebel group and has been in rebellion against the government since it was created in 1964. FARC’s leaders have repeatedly turned down offers to hand over their weapons and return to civilian life without punishment.

“Peace in Colombia will not be born in any guerrilla demobilization, but in the abolition of the causes that give rise to the uprising,” said the  FARC statement, which ended with a tribute to Alfonso Cano.

The FARC statement did not named a new leader. But, according to an intelligence source, either Luciano Marin or Rodrigo Londono would be likely candidates for the top position.

The 65-year old Alfonso Cano became the leader of the terrorist organization three years ago, following the death, by natural causes, of FARC’s founder and supreme commander Pedro Nel Marin.

Last month, another top member of FARC, Jose Umenza died in an explosion in a rural part of the Colombia. Umenza chief role was drug-trafficking to finance FARC political and terrorist operations.

FARC is listed by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organization with several members currently incarcerated in U.S. federal prisons.

Both Houses in Arizona Pass First Presidential Vetting and Eligibility Bill

Bye, Bye, Comrade Obama. No 2nd Term for You!

Both Houses in Arizona Pass First Presidential Vetting and Eligibility Bill 

By Mario Apuzzo, Esq.
April 15, 2011

Arizona has become the first state in the nation to pass a presidential vetting and eligibility bill.

Yesterday in the Senate at 20-9 and tonight by 40 – 16 (with 4 not voting) in the House of Representatives, the bill was passed.

It is now time to start calling Governor Brewer’s office. This may need verification, but she has 5 days (possibly as much as 10 but no more than that) to sign it. If she does not sign it at all, the bill becomes law. The only way the bill will not become law is if she vetoes it.

The many other states need to follow the lead of Arizona. Contact your state representatives and urge them to follow the lead of the great State of Arizona.

Venezuela becomes new Stalinist nation

by Sher Zieve on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

In their game of “Who can create the Fastest Slave State,” Venezuelan Dictator (now official) Hugo Chavez is now ahead of US Dictator Barack Hussein Obama. Not long ago, Chavez made the comment “Hey, Obama has just nationalized nothing more and nothing less than General Motors. Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right.”

Slowly at first but recently more quickly, intensely and more violently every day, Hugo Chavez has become one of the current incarnations of Josef Stalin. Over strong objections from the opposition, in December, Chavez’ ruling and majority Socialist Party granted him full “decree” (dictatorial) powers. Chavez has now begun his iron-handed and iron-fisted rule over the people of Venezuela. By the way, Chavez affected this over Christmas. What other country’s Marxist Party does the same thing in shoving its totalitarianism down the throats of its own people? If you answered the US Marxist-used-to-be-Democrat-Party, you’re right!

In his latest bold move against the people of Venezuela, Obama’s competitor and brother-in-the-cause Hugo Chavez has begun the forceful takeover of all of Venezuela’s farms. News out of Venezuela has largely been shut down and the US media (the ObamaMedia) has refused to publish anything about it. Only a few sketchy reports have managed to surface, including a video (see reference below) showing Venezuelan military tanks lined up outside the Hacienda El Peonio. Apparently, over 47 farms are reported to have been taken by Venezuelan Marxist forces and a Cuban general (along with the countries of Iran and Russia and the terrorist organization FARC — thrown in for good measure) is said to be assisting Dictator Chavez’ military. Again, NO ONE from the US/Obama Media has reported on this. This is the new criminality of our media, its devolution and ultimate demise as a complete and unashamed mouthpiece for Dictator Obama and the world’s elite slave masters. After all, Chavez has put into place the totalitarian government that the US leftist media (just another “elitist” group) wants here and worldwide.

One voice has reported on the atrocities now befalling the people of Venezuela, as their country slips into darkness; a darkness now ignored by the collaborating-with-evil world press. Arlen Williams from Gulag Bound has been reporting on the Venezuelan catastrophe. And from Venezuela News and Views come the report “Sur del Lago people are resisting. The legislative assembly of the state moved down there to seat, the representatives elect are stirring the pot, the regime sent a Cuban general!”

Note: This is, also, what the demented Marxist/Leninist Party (formerly the US Democrat Party) wants and has been pushing for in the USA. Although We-the-People were able to take back our House of Representatives in November, the Republican Party has already begun to acquiesce to our own dictator-in-chief and his minions; the latest insanity being a virtual demand from the Marxist Party for Republicans to sit with them during Dictator Obama’s State of the Union address.
