Andrew Bolt on the lies about Islam

Andrew Bolt has an opinion column in the Courier Mail about the lies about Islam, and how it is time the lies were ended.

THE Prime Minister is wrong. I’m sure Tony Abbott knows it, too, but does not dare publicly tell the truth about Islamic terrorism.

Abbott insists Islam had nothing to do with last week’s shooting of tourists in Tunisia, bombing of Shia worshippers in Kuwait and beheading of a man in France.

“What’s being done by Daish (the Islamic State) has nothing to do with God, it has nothing to do with religion,” he claimed on Saturday.

Is he kidding us?

Yes he is.

The Islamic State, which claims credit for the two worst attacks and is linked to the beheading, has nothing to do with Islam?

For heaven’s sake, we can all read. “Islam” is in the very title of this terrorist outfit.

And if religion had nothing to do with the attacks, why has Tunisia’s president just ordered 80 of the country’s mosques to be closed in response?

Let’s end this polite lie, which blinds us to the steps we must take to defend ourselves.

Israelis dismiss McCully as a lightweight, Obama continues to insult Israel

Murray McCully is in Israel and cuddling up to Hamas as he tries to make out he is the great peacemaker.

But the Israelis are having none of it, with unnamed officials being very dismissive.

Israel has gotten used to fending off pressure from the United States and the European Union over the conflict with the Palestinians. But now it faces an unlikely country, New Zealand, which is set to join the chorus of those pushing for renewed negotiations and is strongly considering concrete steps to force a solution on Israel.

By all reckonings a minor player on the international stage, Wellington has been working on a draft for a United Nations Security Council resolution on the peace process. In January, New Zealand took up a seat on the council for the first time in 21 years, and it intends to make active use of its newly gained influence.

“They have thoughts about the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and might even have a Security Council resolution drawn up that they’re keeping in the drawer,” a Foreign Ministry official familiar with the issue told The Times of Israel this week.

A small and isolated nation that has no regional interests and not much historical baggage in the Middle East — as opposed to other players such as the US, Russia, Britain or France — Wellington is eager to offer an original contribution to solve the decades-old crisis.

New Zealand thinks it can think outside the box,” the official said.

The NRA should just give Obama a life membership

Barack Obama is the world’s greatest gun salesman, it is getting beyond a joke now.

Breitbart reports on the surge of concealed carry permits:

Concealed carry permit applications are surging in states like North Carolina, as they have been surging nationally under Obama, “amid safety fears.”

For example, in North Carolina’s Buncombe County, the number of permits issued in 2014 were up “101 percent” from 2010.  And this county-level jump is in line with a national jump under Obama, whereby the number of concealed carry permit holders rose “136 percent” across the United States between 1999 and 2014.

According to the Citizen-Times, the reasons behind the surge in NC are based on both politics and safety. While Republicans like state Representative Jacqueline Schaffer (Dist. 105) are pushing to lessen the restrictions on law-abiding gun owners in NC, Democrats keep fighting back, pressing to keep as much gun control in place as possible.   Read more »

President Obama – misinformed or plain stupid?

The-Hard-Proof-That-Global-Warming-Is-A-Scam-4

Insurance is a sensible device for managing risk.  We use it everyday for peace of mind and dealing with unforeseeable and catastrophic events.    The premiums we pay are based on very well researched information.  The competitive market requires car insurers for example to know a great deal about various models of car, which ones are susceptible to theft, cost of repairs and much more.

It would be unthinkable to have annual premiums where the cost exceeded the amount agreed to be paid out.  Or would it?  President Obama thinks its OK.

In a recent speech to the military he outlined his plans for reducing CO2.  His aim is an 80% reduction in emissions by 2050.  The costs of achieving this are horrendous, even if you use the most optimistic calculations.  One government-based assessment has it at US$13,000 trillion – whatever that amount is.   Reality says it is impossible to even hazard a guess that is going to come in close.  We know from Germany’s very short flirtation with renewable energy, that electricity consumers there are now paying three times more than they were.  The USA situation is potentially much worse, because of their greater dependence on fossil fuels.  And that’s just one aspect of the cost.  An even greater cost is the loss of food production to ethanol production.  Who really cares though about starvation in Haiti or Sudan?  Certainly not the well-fed, cosseted, do-gooder alarmists.  The US Navy has already calculated that biofuels will cost more than four times their present fuel budget.

The proponents of “doing something” are not concerned about the cost.  They argue any cost can be justified.     Read more »

Why does anyone care if Osama bin Laden was armed or not?

Some ratbag journalist is accusing the SEAL Team who shot and killed Osama bin Laden of shooting an unarmed man. 

Meh, so what.

The former Navy SEAL who says he killed Osama bin Laden is slamming a new report that challenges the White House’s account of the mission, calling it “garbage.”

“The story that I read, the part from [Seymour] Hersh, was full of lies,” Rob O’Neill said onFox News’s “Shepard Smith Reporting.

“It took me a long time to read it because I had to put it down — I couldn’t read the nonsense.”

Hersh on Sunday published in story in the London Review of Books that says Pakistani intelligence officers played a significant role in the bin Laden operation, despite the White House’s assertion that the mission was undertaken without their knowledge.

The report alleges that key Pakistani military leaders helped American helicopters slip into the country undetected and that a Pakistani security officer led the American soldiers directly to bin Laden without any resistance from guards, who were ordered to flee the compound.   Read more »

Looks like the mainstream media has found a hurricane to piss into

The mainstream media are so far up their own fundament they are actually still in denial and believe that they are still relevant to most people.

Witness the way they have carried on, especially the NZ Herald, in the past weeks over John Key’s silly fetish with hair. Trying to milk the story for all it was worth, which was frankly about the same as a soy latte moccahino at Rosies of Parnell.

The White House press corp are another case in point.

Over the last six years, a confluence of forces have eroded the foundation of the relationship between the White House and the reporters who cover it most regularly. Financial pressures have reduced the number of news organizations committed to daily coverage of the White House and to participating in its cycle of pools, briefings and trips on Air Force One. And technologies including Twitter, YouTube and livestreaming of events mean the White House can communicate directly with the public without going through the traditional media that still dominates the Brady Briefing Room.

In fact, through Twitter and its whitehouse.gov website, the White House already operates something akin to its own news agency, and the president gives much more face time to niche media outlets such as MTV, Telemundo and BuzzFeed than to the reporters who camp out in the West Wing day after day.   Read more »

No. No. No. And never.

[A] White House review of America’s hostage policy is making the recommendation that the U.S. government look the other way if families want to make a ransom payment to terror groups to free their loved ones — thereby changing the long-standing rule that the federal government does not allow anyone to negotiate with terrorists.

But those White House officials say that the change has been requested in the wake of murdered hostage James Foley at the hands of ISIS. Foley’s family say they were threatened with prosecution by an unnamed White House official when they suggested paying a ransom to free their son. An allegation other families have made as well.

The most recent hostage fatality was Warren Weinstein who was accidentally killed in a U.S. drone strike against al Qaeda. His family did attempt a $250,000 ransom, but was unsuccessful in buying Weinstein’s release.

One senior White House official commented on these recommendations: “There will be absolutely zero chance of any family member of an American held hostage overseas ever facing jail themselves, or even the threat of prosecution, for trying to free their loved ones.”

This is one of these situations where you can have two positions at the same time.  On the one hand, paying ransoms will simply increase the amount of kidnappings and hostage takings.  It will turn into a business, and international travellers will be hit hard.

Never.  Ever.   Do not pay ransom.    Read more »

Obama’s climate hypocrisy exposed

Obama thinks that climate change is the biggest threat to the planet…not Islam or any myriad of other things

And so he is doing his utmost to combat climate change…by flying in Air Force One to attend an Earth Day meeting in Florida.

Today, President Obama boarded Marine One to go to Air Force One to fly to Florida to drive by motorcade to the Everglades where dozens of reporters and others arrived by various mechanical contrivances to listen to President Obama give a speech about fighting global warming. The only thing “green” about that trip was the color of the helicopter he took to get to his jet.

Accordingly, many have pondered whether so much ostentatious travel is the best message to send on Earth Day. In fact, Mark Knoller asked Press Secretary Josh Earnest whether the trip “undermined” the President’s message, to which Earnest convincingly replied, “No.”

Just asking the question was enough to prompt giggles, chuckles, and perhaps a guffaw or two from the assorted media of the White House Press Corps. You can also hear someone say he could have taken a van, a nice shot across Hillary’s bow. She, too, opted for the high life instead of the high road for Earth Day.

Hookers for Hillary

hookers4hillary

Perhaps Hillary Clinton won’t want this sort of endorsement.

Then again given the proclivities of her husband…maybe she will.

“Everyday Americans need a champion,” Hillary Clinton proclaimed in herYouTube video. “And I want to be that champion.”

Yes, few were surprised when Hilary Clinton announced her campaign for the 2016 U.S. presidential race, but many were surprised by some of her early supporters. Since that announcement, the lovable ladies of Nevada’s renowned Moonlite Bunny Ranch have come out in support of our former first lady in a serious, potentially large-scale campaign called “Hookers for Hillary.” These Everyday Americans have chosen their candidate.
