Serdar Turkmenbashi The Great

World’s Craziest Dictator

He renamed a month after him; banned recorded music, video games and beards!

If you think Saddam Hussein was fond of himself, just visit Turkmenbashi’s country. There’s a poster or a statue of him in nearly every public space.

In 1991, after the fall of Communism and the USSR, Turkmenistan found itself independent for the first time in a hundred years. The new president, Saparmurat Niyazov, was the obvious successor ? he’d been the Communist Party’s puppet governor since 1985. But easing a country of five million people into a new era of self-sufficiency and autonomy was not the highest item on Niyazov’s agenda. He was more concerned that decades of Soviet control had left Turkmenistan with no national identity. So, in 1993, Niyazov took it upon himself to create the country in a new image: his own.

He was not only a brutal dictator, but also a dictator who ran his country like it was his own private Disney World. The country, Turkmenistan, is a former Soviet republic sitting strategically between Iran and Afghanistan. And the man who ran it is Saparmurat Niyazov.

He’s known by his citizens, and by decree, as “Serdar Turkmenbashi” – which means “Great Leader of all Turkmen.”

Trump gets one step closer to being President by acting like one

Trump and his team are brilliant strategists. He is acting as though he already is President. ?When people see him up there side by side with the Mexican president they will see him as a President, not as a Presidential hopeful. ?The fact that the Mexican president invited him shows that he sees Trump as Presidential. ?This is an amazing coup for the Trump team. ?One of his most controversial policies is to build the wall between Mexico and the United States and here he is acting like a president side-by-side with the president of Mexico. Like him or hate him no one should underestimate the political brilliance of this man. The below video doesn’t have a translation for the Mexican president but this one on Trump’s facebook page does.

Today’s face of the day wants the liberal vote but is refusing to play the same card played by Obama and Clinton. The liberals loved Obama because he played the colour-of-his-skin card. A vote for Obama was a vote to elect the first-ever Black president. It made liberal voters’ knickers sticky. It made white women feel good about how non-racist they were. Hillary Clinton knows how the game is played. A vote for her is a vote for the first-ever female president. She plays the sex card because, again, liberals get sticky knickers at the thought of being non-sexist enough to make a woman president. Bernie Sanders has a card that will make him a first too but he refuses to play it. Why do you think that is?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – ?????? ?????? said it well:

?Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam. One calls itself the Islamic Republic. The other calls itself the Islamic State. Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire first on the region and then on the entire world. They just disagree among themselves who will be the ruler of that empire. In this deadly game of thrones, there’s no place for America or for Israel, no peace for Christians, Jews or Muslims who don’t share the Islamist medieval creed, no rights for women, no freedom for anyone?The difference is that ISIS is armed with butcher knives, captured weapons and YouTube, whereas Iran could soon be armed with intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear bombs.?

Mr. President, wake up to the very real threat of Islam.

-Franklin Graham (facebook)

pg-32-Sabaaneh-1-getty

cartoonist Mohammed Sabaaneh.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has appointed a team to investigate today’s face of the day, cartoonist Mohammed Sabaaneh. Despite being censored by his own Editors and being imprisoned in the past by Israel for five months because of? contact with a hostile organisation? in 2013 he still does not agree with freedom of expression. He argues that a cartoonist should not harm any religion.

He was against the re-publication by Western newspapers of Charlie Hebdo’s depictions of Mohammed. “Republishing them reactivates hatred and hostility. It’s provoking more hatred in the society, based on religion.”

Ironically however it was Sabaaneh’s cartoon of Mohammed that got him suspended from his job and under investigation.

He tells Ben Lynfield in Ramallah that he just wanted to make people think

sabaaneh

It was meant to be a favourable image, designed to counter negative stereotypes of Islam in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo shootings.

Today’s face of the day has had his life changed forever because of a drawing. A drawing that frankly looks like a child drew it.

dogcartoon

I am no art critic but even as a cartoon it doesn’t impress. The offence and push back in reaction to this drawing is obscene in its intensity and violence. Last Saturday an Islamic terrorist in Denmark almost succeeded in ending the artist’s life. Who is this man that now has to lives his life under constant threat of death because of a drawing?

Pamela Geller

Pamela Geller

Pamela Geller is planning a ?Draw the Prophet? event in Garland, Texas in the same location as a Muslim group held a ?Stand with the Prophet? conference in January. The First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest will be hosted by the Curtis Caldwell Center, which is owned and operated by the Garland Independent School District.

Geller?s event comes on the wake of the Islamic terrorist attack on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo in January. Following the attack, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) scheduled the ?Stand with the Prophet? conference at the public school district?s conference center. Geller, the President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), scheduled a protest outside the event that was attended by approximately 2,000 people.

During the Free Speech Rally in Garland, Geller spoke with Breitbart Texas about her reaction to the large and loud crowd of protesters. She said that Muslims?are trying to impose restrictions on free speech like they are doing in Paris. ?Thousands of Americans said ?no way!??

?The media can smear us and the President can stand with them,? Geller said. ?We the people are not having it. If there is any proof of that, it?s today. We dwarfed them.?

?If the Western media ran the Danish cartoons back when this Islamic supremacist movement first started gaining steam, the editorial staff of Charlie Hebdo would be alive today,? Geller stated in response to an inquiry from Breitbart Texas. ?That said, the European press ran the Hebdo cartoons in the wake of that jihad slaughter. But the American press would not. The beacon of freedom, the shining light on a hill, is running scared. Well, that?s not who we are. The elites do not represent the people.?

?Enough is enough,? she explained. ?They?re just cartoons. We?re holding this exhibit and cartoon contest to show how insane the world has become ? with people in the free world tiptoeing in terror around supremacist thugs who actually commit murder over cartoons. If we can?t stand up for the freedom of speech, we will lose it ? and with it, free society.?

Churchill patting Rommel, a cocker spaniel owned by General Sir Bernard Montgomery (Monty) in Normandy in August 1944.

Yesterday was the anniversary of Winston Churchill’s death. He is a historical figure that I admire because he symbolises to me the determination and tenacity of the underdog. Britain was not winning the war when he became Prime Minister and he had to deal with defeat and failure but he never gave up. His speeches are still quoted today because of the way he used the spoken word to inspire and to energise the British people. One line from one of his speeches is as relevant today for the UK as it was back in 1940.

You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.

The French President with his flag

The French President with his flag – photoshop by SB

A leader with no backbone is no leader at all. French President Francois Hollande refuses to address the elephant in the room and the clear link between increased Muslim immigration and Anti-semitism in France. It is so bad now that Jews are leaving France in large numbers as they no longer feel safe there.

Muslims are not being killed in France, Jews and cartoonists and journalists are, yet his concern is for Muslims.

The terrorists are clearly Muslim / Islamic yet he claims that they are not.

He is the little boy with chocolate smeared all over his face who when asked by his Mum who ate the chocolate cake replies, ” there was no chocolate cake. ”
