When Talk Fails

There are some people and movements who/which do not respond to "talk" or "reaching out" or like methods specially favored by those in ivory towers (Especially those with stained glass windows). This was my experience as a Probation & Parole Agent and prison Social Worker as to most criminals. This is the common experience of history as to dealing with Islam, socialists (eg Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao) and arrogant secular humanists. That Doctor Of The Church St. Bernard of Clairvaux proposed that for some, it was necessary to use the edge of the sword to strike blows for Christ. The "Crusade In Europe" dealt with Hitler.

In today's world the Jihahists and aggressive socialists still do not respond to words, reason and "reaching out" (Something not understood by the Holy See). I suggest that we all sharpen our swords and oil our guns. We will need them.

Really Support Our Troops!

The best information available to me is that many active duty members of our Armed Forces (And the US Coast Guard) were effectively deprived of the basic civil right of having their votes counted due to restrictive, often state or local based, procedures which do not allow sufficient time for the mailing and return of absentee ballots.

Therefore, I strongly suggest that the following be enacted into law for any election for any Federal office:
1. That all persons responsible for the sending out of absentee ballots be required to do so not less than 120-days before any such election for all persons having a military (Or USGC) address.
2. That such ballots and their return envelopes are to be mailed out via the fastest possible US mail.
3. That the return envelopes are NOT to be marked to allow identification of the voter as a member of the Armed Forces (Or, USCG) OR as a member of any political party even for jurisdictions with closed primary systems.
4. That military and USCG commanders are to be directly ordered to expedite the delivery of such mail and, as necessary, the courier delivery of such mail and immediate forwarding via the fastest possible means to those who have been transferred from their commands AND give them notice that their evaluations shall include note of their compliance with this order.

Now, when will the Congress introduce and pass such a bill?

What Follows "Tea Parties"?

There have been a number of "Tea Parties" held around the county in objection to Mr. Obama's taxing plans.

Any reasonable student of American history will recognize the term "tea party" and know what followed such before 1776---Being the tar-and-feathering of government officials, the use of the military to suppress objections to tyrannical authorities and, then, armed revolt by citizens against dictatorial efforts to disarm the People and armed and successful revolt by citizens who had not yet been disarmed.

Obama's Crew Of Baby Killers, Cheats & Duds

There are many better writers than I am who have recently pointed out that Mr. Obama's various nominees are plagued by a lack of obedience to our tax laws, including the personage (Whose name I will not note as I expect him to shortly and properly leave public office) who became the head of Treasury Department which oversees the IRS. Mr. Obama has nominated other like "tax cheats" for high public office.

Beyond such tax cheats, Mr. Obama has appointed or nominated a number of incompetent persons to high office. The Secretary Of Homeland Security demonstrated her inability (Or unwillingness!), as a Governor, to protect the citizens of Arizona from armed raids by Mexican "Drug Lords" into her State resulting in kidnappings, assaults and (I believe) killings there. The Secretary Of State's experience in foreign affairs appears to be limited by very limited "pillow talk" with a once sitting and incompetent President and such hearsay as she picked up in the White House.

Dr. Kagan, Mr. Obama's Solicitor General, has high academic qualification (Earned in an era when "political correctness" was more important than thinking) AND did her legal apprenticeship under Federal Judge Abner Mikva and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, who were two of the most "left wing" (And, therefore, anti-democratic) judges ever to infest our judiciary.

Yet, our dollar driven (And ethically-or-morally castrated) society does not seem to have the same problems with Mr. Obama's nominees who are ardently in favor of murdering unborn children for no reason other than the "connivance" of the mother and, sometimes, of the father who often has forced abortion upon the unborn child's host OR in full support of those Nazi like social theories as to eliminating "untermenchen".

It is not surprising that Mr. Obama has selected these horrid persons as he, himself, has strongly supported such killings---Even after a child survives an abortion and is born alive, an "accident" which Mr. Obama wished corrected by allowing such humans to die. In this case "birds of a feather, sticking together" refers to vultures who politically feed off the killings done by others.

The Economics Of Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Without regard to the ethics or morality (If either still have meaning under an Obama administration), there are serious problems as to the economics of embryonic stem cell research---A matter ignored by most Catholic editors and other writers who, very properly, focus on the moral problems involved.

If this form of "research" has any potential for safe, reliable and useful therapies, then private companies and like university spin-off operations would seize upon it without the use of constraining federal funds (My paid-under-protest tax dollars) in the hope or reasonable expectation that they would make profits on such. There are now and could be (For fees paid or voluntary contributions) "embryonic stem cell lines" available to such non-federal funded operations----Without regard to my or others objections to such.

Of course, the private exploitation of this process would leave private corporations (Including university spin-off operations) liable for damages caused by future repeats of the horrid and deadly side-effects of cancers, other neoplasms and other side-effects implicit in the use of such cells. Even public university spin-off corporations, being divorced from state funding and control, would face such liabilities---And very bad publicity.

This research direction or thrust may generate income----For trial attorneys who wish a money-making target as "easy" as the Church.

Sovereignty Of Pakistan & Mexico: And Terrorists

There are those who maintain that US and allied forces may not enter those parts of Pakistan in which the Taliban and other terrorists have taken refuge and which they use a as bases-of-operation for their attacks on other lands, especially Iraq. These persons maintain that to attack those terrorists in Pakistan would be a violation of that nation's "sovereignty".

I think it reasonable to ask: "Does the central government of Pakistan have "sovereignty" in those areas?". Does it maintain police or military control in those areas? Do its courts effective function there and enforce the laws enacted by its (More or less democratic) central government? Does that government collect taxes there as it does in other parts of Pakistan? Is that government taking full and hopefully effective measures to enforce its sovereignty in those border areas? It appears that the answer to all of those questions is "NO"!

Pakistan no more exercises "sovereignty" in those areas than did the governments of Great Britain, France and Spain did over the pirate (Buccaneers if you will) controlled islands and other areas of the Caribbean the 1600s and early 1700s. As is well established in international law, such pirates (And today's terrorists) are the enemies of all humanity and may be attacked and physically destroyed at any time and by any recognized government.

I see no reason, in international law, why the USA or any other government should not covert the bases of those terrorists in Western Pakistan to a series of craters.

At this time Mexico appears to be making some reasonable effort to reestablish its control and sovereignty along its border with the USA. If it fails to do so (By the tests noted above), it may be necessary and will be allowable for the USA to (As it did in 1916 to a smaller attack by Mexican outlaws than are now the ongoing actions of this era) to enter Mexico and "take out" the drug lords there.

"Glittering Generalities" Are Dangerous

In high-school and university English and Logic classes, (By judges and coaches) in debate competitions and in other places I was warned against the use of "Glittering Generalities" (Please look up the term if you are unfamiliar with it).

That "thinking error" is all too typical of most commercial advertising, political speeches (Especially those read off tele-prompters), comments by various "social activists" and,I am sorry to note, too many editorial writers.

Worst yet, it appears that far too many Americans are no longer educated as to that hazard. Certainly such interests (Listed above) are those who most sincerely wish for on-going and wide-spread ignorance of the foundations of sound thinking.

Although most Americans have developed some intuitive or logical resistance to much of commercial advertising (Especially in today's hard times), the success of Mr. Madoff's Ponzi scheme, the last general election and other political promises or programs and the statements of most "social activists" demonstrate a very great need to reintroduce logical thinking as part of our middle and high schools English language instruction----If we can find teachers who are able to understand and present this subject.

For the purposes of this note, I suggest that editorial writers are as prone to this "thinking error" as anyone else. Although some editors very evidently fight to avoid this deep pit of misleading rhetoric, the lack of successful resistance is too often apparent in editorials, guest editorials and commentary and (Wonderfully to a lesser extent) in the offerings of"Community Columnists" where used by some newspapers.

As editors write their offerings to your readers and accept-or-reject the words of others, I most strongly urge them to avoid this pitfall to sound thinking and the well being of both readers and the ongoing survival of newspapers.

Magical Thinking At White House On Terrorism

So---The White House has declared that such creatures as we hold at Guantanamo Bay and like individuals are no longer "Enemy Combatants" but something else.

This is a prime example of medieval, pre-scientific, superstitious and magical thinking where naming something changes its nature and makes it what we wish it to be. It is also a denial-of-reality.

Since we have to call those critters something special, why not "TERRORISTS"?

For the faint-of-heart or the under-educated I will define that term as: Persons not in the uniform of the armed forces of a recognized nation (Or one of its political sub-divisions) who attack or plan/attempt to attack the uniformed armed forces of a recognized government or the civilians under their protection.

In a saner age such persons were given very summary (To determine that status), field, courts-martial and shot or hung. Any lesser punishment-or-treatment (eg Today's "water boarding" and even strict, no-nonsence, imprisonment so unlike the country club at "Gitmo") were considered an acts-of-grace well beyond what was required by the Laws-Of-War. The same treatment was legally and properly given to pirates, such as those now infesting the East coast of Africa who are a sub-class of "terrorists".

In fact, the same definition and dispositions should be applied to the Mexican Drug Lords and their troops now combating the army of Mexico and already raiding into the USA.

What New Ideas By Democrats???

There are those, mostly on the left, who claim that conservative (ie Real) Republicans are cleaving to a defunct philosophy and rejecting new ideas.

In fact, the ideas rejected are those previously proposed by Marx, Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Al Capone and other Chicago politicians like the first Mayor Daley (Mr. Obama's real, Illinois, role model). They have all been tested in the fires of history and have failed. Those ideas are anti-freedom, anti-civilization, pro-death and pro-dictatorship.

When Democrats come up with ideas which will not destroy the economy or endanger the Republic, please let real Republicans know and they will support them.

Surprise At Obama's Expansion Of Programs?

It appears that many of the media's pre-election worshipers (Excuse me,supporters) of Mr. Obama are now surprised and even shocked at the costly expansion of his program proposals well beyond those noted by him in the last campaign. Why?

Did they fail to consider the possibility of Chicago style pay-offs to all of Mr. Obama's followers-and-contributors who were-and-are foes of free enterprise, national security, Christianity, open borders, Jews and the State Of Israel AND who are supporters of Islam, limiitng-or-destroying parental rights, unrestricted abortion and other death-worshiping causes AND other anti-Civilization causes?

Remember that Adolf Hitler was also elected on a platform which was grossly expanded to a political takeover of the Army, genocide, socialist programs self-defeated by joining with the worst persons in German industry-and-business and other crimes. ("Those who fail to learn from history will be condemned to repeat it.")

Republicans Can Win---With Party Disipline

Sometimes I wonder the leaders of my Party really want to win national elections! It, most strongly, appears that the leadership (Most specially Republican US Senators) are so tied up with accumulating personal power and wealth that the future of the Party, the real future of the USA, is of so less importance as to be hardly noticed by them, the RNC and the People.

It appears that some external discipline, other than that of the voters as already expressed, must be imposed on those elected officials who vary from the basic Republican principles of economy (Especially as to "pork" and "ear marks"), patriotism, free-markets, national defense (Including fully effective border security) and the like.

Republican officials (Especially US Senators) who are so un-Republican as to not support those values should be formally "warned off" by the RNC. If such a warning does not have its positive effect, then such persons should be removed from all Congressional leadership positions, denied membership on the RNC, not allowed to be delegates at our Party's conventions, and denied the use of State and National Party organizations and personnel to raise campaign funds.

I realize that such will be very unpopular---Among those who have gained power and wealth by holding official position; But, such will be the key to future election victories and the positive future of the USA! I realize that this would fly in the face of "senatorial privilege" and other blocks to the common good of and in the USA.

Islam's Nature & Growth Patterns: Key Document

You may disregard this note as another example of my "hobby horse" as to Islam; But, you are unlikely to find a better declaration of the nature of Islam as demonstrated by its growth dynamics.

Respectfully submitted,
James Pawlak

Kenneth M. Fisher, Founder & Chairman, CRCOA, Inc.


Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism, and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult; in its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious rights. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious rights, some of the other components tend to creep in as well. Here's how it works.

As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

United States-- Muslim 0.6%
Australia-- Muslim 1.5%
Canada-- Muslim 1.9%
China-- Muslim 1.8%
Italy-- Muslim 1.5%
Norway-- Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany-- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom-- Muslim 2.7%
Spain-- Muslim 4%
Thailand-- Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

France-- Muslim 8%
Philippines-- Muslim 5%
Sweden-- Muslim 5%
Switzerland-- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:

Guyana-- Muslim 10%
India-- Muslim 13.4%
Israel-- Muslim 16%
Kenya-- Muslim 10%
Russia-- Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad-militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues such as in:

Ethiopia-- Muslim 32.8%

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia-- Muslim 40%
Chad-- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon-- Muslim 59.7%

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya (the tax placed on infidels) such as in: Albania-- Muslim 70%

Malaysia-- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar-- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan-- Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

Bangladesh-- Muslim 83%
Egypt-- Muslim 90%
Gaza-- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia-- Muslim 86.1%
Iran-- Muslim 98%
Iraq-- Muslim 97%
Jordan-- Muslim 92%
Morocco-- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan-- Muslim 97%
Palestine-- Muslim 99%
Syria-- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan-- Muslim 90%
Turkey-- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates-- Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' --the Islamic House of Peace. Here there's supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan-- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia-- Muslim 100%
Somalia-- Muslim 100%
Yemen-- Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states. The most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less-radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons. Before I was nine, I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel.

Leon Uris, The Haj

It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100%-Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts nor schools nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. Even to associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

Today's 1.5-billion Muslims make up 22% of the world's population; but their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, and Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world's population by the end of this century.
