The Day Without A Woman Event was Organized by Radical Islamists

The “A Day Without A Woman” protest has come and gone. Anyone notice? Me either.

For most of us in the real world, it passed without disruption. But for the privileged who were able to attend one of these events, I suppose it was a rousing success. By what measure, I do not know. That’s just what they say.

Whining liberal elitist females showed up at places like outside Trump Tower in New York City to complain how put upon they are and that they are somehow denied even the basics of human dignity, merely because they are female.

According to VOX, most of the working women who sacrificed so much to show up and display their solidarity, did so by sacrificing pretty much nothing. read more

Liberalism is Closer to Sharia Than it is to Constitutional Conservatism.

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I think we would all agree that radical Islam is not good for America and Sharia law has no place in this country. Dr. Carson was absolutely right when he said that Sharia law is the antithesis of a Constitutional Republic. Why that was controversial, I’ll never know.

I thought it fascinating that the left made such a fuss over something which, to us conservatives, appears so obvious. At first I thought they were just saying how wrong Carson was out of hatred for the right and political correctness.

So I started outlining some of the glaring disparities between Constitutional conservatism and Islam’s Sharia law. As I wrote, it donned on me that there is a third category – liberalism/progressivism/statism – however you wish to classify it. And I discovered something quite interesting. Liberalism is closer to Sharia than it is to Constitutional conservatism.

Sponsoring the Agents of Our Own Demise

by: the Common Constitutionalist

According to U.S. Census Data, “the United States admits roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants legally each year, representing the fastest growing block of [legal] immigration into the United States.”

“Pew Research has estimated that immigration will cause the population of U.S. Muslims to more than double over the next two decades—from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030. This demographic change is entirely the product of legal admissions – that is, it is a formal policy of the federal government adopted by Congress.”

And over 50% of Muslims currently residing in America believe they have a choice of being governed by Sharia, instead of the Constitution and U.S. law. Their reasoning is that the Constitution was written by man, whereas Sharia is the law of Allah. As their population expands, we should expect that percentage to grow.

Similarly, National Review reported , “Dearborn, Michigan is home to just under 100,000 people, about 40 percent of whom are Muslim. In 2013, a leaked government document revealed that more people from Dearborn were on the federal terrorist watch list than from any other city except New York,” and NYC has a population of well over 8 million. read more

The Saudi’s Are Hiring

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So you say you need a job. Maybe you’re one of the over 93 million unemployed Americans. And to add to that misery, you don’t have a ton of marketable skills. Perhaps you’re just starting out – willing to start at ground level and work your way up the ladder.

You’ve applied everywhere and still nothing. Well, maybe it’s time to expand your horizons – expand your job search area – perhaps even overseas. Heck, you say anything would be better than your current situation.

Well buck up – for there is a country who is hiring. So far, there are only eight job openings, but these jobs require no schooling and no experience. One hint though: if, as a kid, you grew up playing with toy swords, that may be a plus.

See, Saudi Arabia is currently advertising for eight new executioners. The executioner duties are to dispense justice as directed by the Saudi Sharia courts. Specific duties will be amputations and beheadings. read more

Afghanistan – What Are We Doing There?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday, Fox News reported that “An Afghan soldier opened up on American troops at a compound Wednesday, killing one and wounding two others before being shot dead…”

“The insider attack happened after meeting between Afghan provincial leaders and a U.S. Embassy official in the compound of the provincial governort1larggreen2 in Jalalabad…”

However, an eyewitness told the AP that in fact four U.S. troops had been targeted, not three. This is now the second insider (green on blue) attack this year. The first happened in January when an Afghan soldier killed three contractors before being shot dead.

“Right after the US official had left, suddenly an Afghan Army soldier opened fire on the U.S. soldiers who were present in the compound,” reported the Associated Press.

I understand why we went into Afghanistan in 2001. At the time it was the epicenter of Al Qaeda terrorism and we had to strike back after the 9/11 attacks. I get that. But now, 14 years later, why are we still there – what are we fighting for? read more

Fox News Emerson is not Such an Idiot

By: the Common Constitutionalist

So Fox News security analyst Security analyst Steven Emerson said last Sunday that “non-Muslims just simply don’t go in” to the city, during a discussion of multiculturalism in Britain after last week’s Paris attacks.

Emerson was speaking of the city of Birmingham England, when he claimed “The whole city is Muslim.” Emerson has been mocked and verbally Emersonattacked mercilessly for his claim.

Prime Minister David Cameron called Emerson a “complete idiot”, for claiming the city is totally Muslim. Emerson has been corrected many times by various left leaning publications and news outlets, saying that Birmingham is only 22% Muslim.

And of course – how could 22% of any city’s population take over the whole thing. That’s just absurd, right?

An interesting side note: In 1933, Hitler’s Nazi party had about 2 million members, a little over 2.5% of the 67 million German population. Sometimes, it doesn’t take many. A small minority of determined radicals can do great and disproportionate damage. Just look at the Obama administration! read more

More From the Peaceful Islamic State

by: the Common Constitutionalist

ISIS, the Islamic State, is on the move – expanding its territory in both Syria and Iraq. Unlike their shadowy predecessors, this new breed of terrorist is actually widely promoting their cause, taking to Twitter and YouTube to spread their propaganda.

Vice News has put together a series of videos cataloging the views, ideology and methods of the Islamic State. It begins with one of the “Warriors of Allah” explaining that “Sharia must be the only law and that it [Sharia] can only be established with weapons”, as he slaps his AK-47.

The Islamic State is not like other terrorist organizations. They really do fancy themselves an actual autonomous kingdom. They even have their own “press officer”, Abu Mosa, who escorted the Vice News crew to different locales within their newly founded kingdom.

In the first of the video series, Abu Mosa has a statement for America. As he fiddles with his weapon Mosa says: “I say to America, that the Islamic Caliphate has been established. And we will not stop. Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead, send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.” read more

Is It Time to Revisit Privateering?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

When I first heard of these guys, I thought – why would the old rock group Procol Harum be in the kidnapping business? It must be some group with the same name. I’m not making a joke. I really did think that, for a second.

But this situation is no laughing matter. The group, Boko Haram, are savages – the worst kind of human debris. They are indeed terrorists by any definition.

In Nigeria, they travel from village to village indiscriminately killing people. That’s not exactly accurate. They don’t kill everyone. Evidently, their main purpose is the kidnapping and sale of school-age girls into slavery. Oh, and did I mention they are Islamic radicals. What a shock, eh?

And to whom do you think they sell these girls off? That’s right – to other Moslems. Once again, it’s the great religion of peace that has somehow spawned another terrorist gang.

Funny how we never hear of roving bands of Jews, Christians, Buddhists or Hindus shooting up villages and the abducting hundreds of innocent schoolgirls to sell into slavery.

From reports, the count is up to 300 girls.

Recently, the International Business Times reported of an attack by the group on the Nigerian village Gamboru Ngala. Apparently Boko Haram had waited until Nigerian security forces moved out of the town before commencing their attack. The result was carnage, with most of the town’s buildings completely destroyed and dead bodies littering the streets.

The gang had abducted 273 girls from the village of Chibok and another 11 from Warabe. Thus far, the reward for information on the girl’s whereabouts is approaching a half $1 million.

The group dubs themselves the “Nigerian Taliban” and wishes to institute Sharia law. Why am I not surprised. The name Boko Haram translates to “Western education is sinful” and so far, they have been linked to over 10,000 deaths since 2002.

Their leader, Abubakar Shekau exclaimed on video that, “I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah”.

Evidently, abduction is not their only goal. Another goal is to target and kill any Christians in the region. Again, why am I not surprised.

Security experts from Britain, France and the United States are being dispatched to try to recover the girls.

I consider myself a peace loving individual and would normally say that this isn’t our problem, and indeed it is not our problem, we shouldn’t get involved, and maybe our government shouldn’t get involved.

But frankly, I feel differently about 300 innocent schoolgirls being sold off to dirty radical Islamists as slaves and concubines, be they American or not.

Maybe this is just such a case to bring back the practice of Privateering. Hire a team of ex-military private contractors to go in. They could do the job a lot more covertly, more efficiently and a lot less expensively than government military advisers. Plus – they would, in all likelihood, get the job done.

And given how I feel about this particular incident, I would charge them with two tasks. First and foremost: recover the girls and return them to safety. Second: I think you know where I’m going with this – wipe out the entire Boko Haram – I mean with extreme prejudice! Leave no man standing.

Make an example of them to the world, so that others may think twice before attempting such a heinous act.

They want carnage – give them carnage.

A “Tribute” to Islam

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

One of my favorite movies of all time, if not my favorite, is the 10 Commandments, starring Charlton Heston. Not just for the story but also the scope and scale of the movie. It was estimated that if they were to make it today, it would cost $1 billion or more.

 

Anyway, toward the beginning, the young Egyptian Prince Moses, comes home as a conquering hero. He says to Pharaoh that rather than conquer Ethiopia, he has brought them into the Egyptian empire as an ally. Yet he also proclaims to Pharaoh that there are umpteen treasure barges full of “tribute” from Ethiopia to Pharaoh coming up the Nile.

 

So in other words the Ethiopians are now, in effect second-class, quasi-Egyptians, forced to pay protection money to Pharaoh.

 

Protection money? Protection from whom? Why, from being wiped out by their protectors, the Egyptians. Pretty good racket, eh? read more

Sharia…Coming to a City Near You?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

Imagine this scenario. A husband-and-wife are married in the Catholic Church. The wife gets pregnant. They have a falling out and get divorced. The now ex-wife wishes to have an abortion but her ex-husband wishes her to have the baby.

Putting aside our views on murder abortion, the husband decides to challenge her decision. Rather than take her to civil court, he and she go before a Catholic tribunal. The tribunal rules that the woman must carry the baby to term and upon the baby’s birth relinquish he/she to the father who will have full custody.

The woman doesn’t stand for this ruling and takes the matter to her state court, but the state court upholds the Catholic ruling.

Now how many liberal organizations would have a cow over this? Naturally all of them. And might the Obama justice system inject themselves into this case? You bet they would.

Surprise. I would agree with the libs. This case should be decided in state court and a tribunal ruling should have no bearing on its outcome. Why? Because there is no place in this country for a parallel judicial system.

Yet with the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood and our overwhelming political correctness, how long will it be before Sharia law becomes that parallel system?

Another surprise. It’s already here, in a manner of speaking. Liberal judges are and have been deferring to Sharia law for years when adjudicating cases.

You may ask how prevalent it is, or more to the point, just how bad it could get?

Well, whenever you wish to predict the future, one merely has to find a similar situation that has already occurred and walk it back. Knowing that liberals and progressives follow the same patterns no matter where or when they reside, you can, with a fair amount of certainty, predict our future.

Political correctness coupled with fear is strangling Europe. As bad as it is here, it’s much worse in European countries. Predictably, France is at the politically correct forefront.

To date there are over 750 “No-Go Zones” in French cities, containing over 5 million Muslims. What’s a No-Go Zone? The PC name for it is “Sensitive Urban Zone”. Ah, that sounds nice, does it not?

What they are is whole swaths of a city where French law enforcement has virtually no presence. It’s a separate country within the city. These areas are controlled by Muslims and the law they follow is Sharia, not French. These neighborhoods erect mosques to further radicalize their population, all financed by governments such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In other words, the Muslim brotherhood.

Oops. Not all the financing comes from Middle East. A lot comes from public assistance provided by the liberal French government. Assistance such as welfare benefits, etc., similar to those provided to Tamerlin Tsarnaev in Boston.

And it’s not just France. This is happening all over Europe. Even Germany has a growing number of court cases where judges defer to Islamic Sharia law. Islamic “Shadow Courts” operate in every major German city.

So if we wish to see our future, whether it be our swift march to socialism and all the joy it creates, or the rise of Sharia, we have only to look across the pond.
