A German's View on Islam


The Financial Armageddon
November 30, 2013

Police in the Ukrainian capital cleared the landmark Independence Square of pro-EU demonstrators on Saturday morning. Reportedly, police used tear gas and clubs, while protesters threw stones at law enforcement .The president of Ukraine will be successful. EU and US will continue to medel in Ukranian affairs but will not be successful. There is actually little chance of EU success. As Putin aligns leaders of the Middle East, the ripple effect will spread out. Turkey, Syria, Iran, Lebanon, Egypt are all forming.

Remember, the protests in Ukraine are CIA inspired. This is CIA and Saudi that are mainly responsible. I'm certain Putin knows that and the Saudi is going to pay. Because of all the success's of Putin, we are seeing the globalists try to fight back with their last breaths.

Lying Liberal LIars

Sultan Knish
Saturday November 23, 2013
Every morning the media paws through a dictionary looking for the most innocuous ways to describe Obama's big health care lie.
According to the New York Times, Obama "misspoke" when he said over and over again that if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. But unlike the times that the smartest man to ever put up his feet on the table in the Oval Office thought that Austrian was a language or that the United States had 57 states, he wasn't misspeaking.

44, as Politico likes to call him, was doing what 1 wouldn't do after he chopped down a cherry tree. And to call a lie, misspeaking, is itself a lie.

Rob Ford didn't misspeak when he claimed not to be on crack, despite being on crack. Barack Obama didn't misspeak when he promised to let you keep your health plan, when he had no intention of letting you do any such thing. And the New York Times didn't misspeak when it tried to pass that lie off as a mere slip of the tongue.

The New York Times, which never hesitated to call George W. Bush a liar,  switched up its euphemisms and began calling Obama's lie an "incorrect promise". NBC News called it a "promise they couldn't keep." The Associated Press called it an "inflated promise."

A few of their more honestly dishonest colleagues in the media argued that Obama did the right thing  because he could never have pried the health plans of Americans out of their grubby little hands if he hadn't promised them that his government takeover of healthcare would affect everyone else but them. Some of the pundits making that argument included those on Obama's regular reading list.

The excuse that Obama lied blatantly about the impact of a law he wanted to pass in order to pass it will no doubt be a great comfort to those gun owners who were willing to trust that his crusade against gun rights would stop where he told them it would and those Republican supporters of amnesty for illegal aliens who believed that he really would secure the borders once he got his millions of newly minted Democratic Party voters

If Obama lied to pass one law, what sensible argument can any of his supporters make for believing him the next time he promises, “If you like your guns, you can keep your guns” or “If you like your borders, you can keep your borders”?

Obama wasn't the first politician to lie. He won't be the last. But most politicians who lie don't have an army of reporters swarming around them to explain that they didn't lie, but just inflated their misspeaking. One man did not get up in front of the microphones and cameras and lie over and over again. The entire liberal establishment lied. And it's still lying. 

The media’s lies and excuses, even more than the original Obama lie, reveal why liberals can never be trusted.

If Obama had only lied about being on crack or with an intern, that might be an impeachable act, but an understandable human failing. But he wasn't lying to cover up something shameful that he did. He lied because he didn’t think Americans deserved to keep their health plans… or the truth.

Obama lied because he is a liberal. 

That Obama would lie was an inevitable as the sun rising in the morning and the taxman coming in the spring. The lie was baked into the nature of the progressive movement that he identified with and its social experiments with human lives for the greater good that he participated in.

Lying isn't incidental to a liberal. Liberal is another word for liar. Someone who believes, as Obama and his media cronies do, that Americans are too stupid and ignorant to be trusted to choose their own health care, isn't about to trust them with the truth.

Telling someone the truth shows that we respect them as people. We give them the information and then trust that they will make the right decision. Trust and respect are the key words here.

Liars don't trust and respect people. Neither do liberals.
Liberals don't believe that the people they lie to are their equals. If they did, not only wouldn't they lie to them, but they wouldn't subscribe to a skewed leftist take on liberalism that compels them to take away choices from people for their own good.

You don't take away someone's right to choose unless you think that they are inferior to you. The  policies of liberalism can only be justified by assuming that the people whose lives they run into the ground are their ethical and intellectual inferiors.

If you think that the next person over can run his life just as well as you run yours, then there's no reason to take over his life and to lie to him about it. But if you think that he’s probably a racist moron who worships the flag and clings to his gun and bible and can't be trusted to buy a car, raise his kids, drink a large soda and see a doctor; then you're probably a liberal. 

And a liar.  

That's the difference between liberals and conservatives. Conservatives respect people's choices. Liberals don't. And if you don't respect someone's choices, you don't respect them.

If you think that the average person is a moron, then the only answer is to set up to some ideal  republic of liberal philosopher kings who will nudge the marching morons into the death panels for their own greater good while lying to them that the death panelists are really the judges for the next hot talent competition.

If ordinary people don't deserve the basic decency of being allowed to make decisions about their own health care, then they also don't deserve the basic decency of not being lied to their faces about those decisions being taken away from them.

If Obama had trusted and respected Americans, he wouldn't have lied to them about ObamaCare. But if he had really trusted and respected them, then he wouldn't have engaged in a massive government hijacking of their health care options, mandated their participation in health plans at virtual gunpoint and then rewritten the regulations to destroy as many of their grandfathered health plans as possible.

And so if Obama had really trusted and respected Americans, he wouldn't have inflicted ObamaCare on them.

The existence of ObamaCare made it inevitable that Obama would lie about it in the same way that a burglar smashing the window of a jewelery store won't hesitate to lie to the owner about what he's doing. A man who is willing to rob a store or a nation will easily and casually lie about his crime.

Obama's crime isn't the lie. The lie is the cover-up of the crime. The crime is that Obama packaged a tax, a welfare program and a government takeover of health care together and called it reform. That was the bigger lie and there was no misspeaking involved.
The media has shown that Obama's lie was no isolated incident by lying about the lie for the same reason that he told the lie. The health plan lie wasn't the lie of one politician protecting his reputation; it was the big lie of a liberal establishment protecting its agenda.

The liberal media manipulates its readers, listeners and viewers the same way that liberal governments manipulate their citizens. And they both do it because they don't believe that the ordinary person has the right to the truth or the right to his life.

The liberal media manipulates its readers, listeners and viewers the same way that liberal governments manipulate their citizens. Unlike Clinton's lie, Obama's lie was not one man's mistake, but a movement's arrogance. And not only hasn't Obama stopped lying about his lie, but the media and the rest of his movement haven't stopped lying about his lie.

Obama’s big health care lie shows why liberals can't be trusted. Any movement that believes its members are superior to ordinary people cannot be trusted to represent them or to tell them the truth.

Hate and Bile: Left-Wing Attacks on Women Get Little Press

Culture and Media Institute

 Editor’s note – This article contains graphic language, sometimes of an extremely sexual nature.

Liberals and the media continue to be upset about Rush Limbaugh’s comments, despite his public apology. Limbaugh’s comments, we’re told, were “unforgivable.”
That’s laughable coming from those who’ve ignored or excused attacks from the left against conservative women like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter and Carrie Prejean. Liberals slime conservative women regularly, usually in language far worse than Limbaugh used. And they are seldom, if ever, held to account for sexual, violent misogynistic speech. Conservative women – whether pundits, politicians or even politicians’ wives – are fair game to the left.
Here are some of the worst examples of attacks on conservative women in recent years.
Real Nasty Time
On the March 4 “Meet the Press,” Rep. Debbie Wassermann Shultz, D-Fla, was incensed about Limbaugh’s comments, saying "I don't know any woman in America, David, that thinks that being called a slut is funny."
What is funny is that Schultz’s disapproval came less than two months after she appeared on Bill Maher’s “Real Time” program on HBO. Unconstrained by broadcast decency codes and advertising, Maher and guests lash out at conservative women in some of the nastiest language and sexual imagery imaginable.
In September, 2011, Maher was talking about Texas Gov. Rick Perry and decided to throw in a vulgar Sarah Palin joke: “He sounded like a sixth grader who didn't do the reading. Garbled syntax, messing up simple facts, sentences that went nowhere. Sarah Palin was watching and she said, ‘If only he was black, I'd fuck him.’”
That was actually pretty mild for Maher. In March, 2011, he called Palin a “dumb twat.” The same month, according to the Dallas Voice, at a public appearance in Texas, Maher called Palin a “cunt” and said “there’s just no other word for her.”
Also on Maher’s hit parade:

While some say Maher is a comic who says a lot of outrageous things as part of his routine, he’s a regular guest on CNN.
Beating up on Bachmann
Few conservative women seem to raise the left’s hackles more than Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. The former candidate for the GOP presidential nomination has been called “Barbie with Fangs,” and “Crazy Eyes,” and she’s been accused of being “hypnotized” and “the Mata Hari of Minnesota” by none other than Chris Matthews.
Bachmann has been a frequent target for HBO’s Maher, but also for his guests. In July, 2011, former Air America comedian Marc Maron said of Bachmann’s husband, I hope he fucks her angrily because, because that's how I would. And I've thought about it. I just … It's a political statement I'm trying to make.”
Liberal radio host Mike Malloy thrilled his dozens of audience members in May 2010 by calling Bachmann a “phony-ass broad” and a “skank.”
The Daily Beast has long had an interest in Bachmann. In 2008, Max Blumenthal called her “The Hate Monger of Minnesota.” In Sept. 2009, the site's Michelle Goldberg dubbed Bachmann “America's craziest member of Congress” and wrote that, “for the past year, her lunacy has been particularly vigorous.” Goldberg later wondered, “In today's GOP, is there such a thing as too crazy? In Nov. 2010, The Daily Beast's “Cheat Sheet” called Bachmann “a bomb-throwing provocateur generally regarded as too extreme to be taken seriously.”
Rolling Stone Magazine’s Matt Taibbi penned a 5,000-word hit piece on Bachmann in June 2011. He called her a "batshit crazy" "political psychopath" with a "gigantic set of burnished titanium Terminator-testicles swinging under her skirt."
If you Can’t Beat ‘em, Slime ‘em
Taibbi has another distinction when it comes to conservative women – back in 2009 he launched an almost unbelievably vile, hateful sexual attack on pundit Michelle Malkin. 
In a Tax Day 2009 blog post, Taibbi claimed he was “really enjoying this whole teabag thing” and that “it's really inspiring some excellent daydreaming” that involved Malkin in incredibly vulgar ways.
“[T]his move of hers to spearhead the teabag movement really adds an element to her writing that wasn't there before,” he wrote. “Now when I read her stuff, I imagine her narrating her text, book-on-tape style, with a big, hairy, set of balls in her mouth. It vastly improves her prose.”
In the same piece, Taibbi said of conservative author Ann Coulter “When you read Ann Coulter, you know you’re reading someone who would fuck a hippopotamus if she thought it would boost her Q rating.”
Taibbi, while offensive, wasn’t even original. Back in 2008, Playboy magazine writer Guy Cimbalo released his list of top ten conservative women against whom he'd like to commit violent sexual acts. Calling these acts a “hate fuck” in his “So Right It's Wrong” article, Cimbalo explained that he “might despise everything” about women like Malkin, Fox News's Megyn Kelly, “The View's” Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Mary Katherine Ham  and Bachmann, “but goddammit, they're hot!”
Cimbalo listed the physical attributes of each woman along with short explanations of why a self-respecting liberal male shouldn't be attracted to them. A “hate-fuck rating,” presumably to tell others just how good the sex would be, accompanied each listing as well. The article caused such a firestorm that Playboy removed it from its Web site.
In 2010, David Letterman couldn’t resist hitting Sarah Palin during a trip to New York with her daughters. The usual “jokes” about Palin's intellect appeared ing the “Top Ten Highlights of Sarah Palin's Trip to New York,” alongside a knock on her looks. “Number Two: Bought make-up from Bloomingdale's to update her 'slutty flight attendant look,’” read the comedian. Then he went further, with a crude joke about her 14-year-old daughter being “knocked up” by Alex Rodreiguez at Yankee Stadium. Letterman eventually was forced to apologize for that joke, but not for carried on the tradition of painting Palin as a complete bimbo, not a governor or a former vice-presidential candidate.
Most of the left enjoys calling Sarah Palin stupid (with impunity). But one set of liberals believes she’s wickedly clever enough to fake maternity of her youngest child. Since her run for the vice presidency in 2008, Palin has been dogged by “Trig Truthers.” As explained in April 2011 bySalon,
Long pursued by the blogger Andrew Sullivan and a significant segment of the Palin-hating left, Trig Trutherism holds that Trig’s real mother is either Bristol Palin or some third party, and that Sarah Palin herself faked the pregnancy to avoid embarrassment for her daughter or for political gain or some combination of reasons.
Sullivan, blogging for The Daily Beast, The Atlantic and Newsweek, has claimed:
A key advantage in getting her head above the crowd for a veepship was giving birth to a child with special needs. Why? Because for decades, the pro-life base has suspected that the GOP leadership just pays lip-service on the issue and doesn't believe it themselves (hence all their pro-choice wives). But by having a child with special needs - and advertizing her struggles about having one - Palin proves she is “one of us."
It goes without saying that this idea has been thoroughly debunked. But it’s telling that so many on the left could think Palin capable of something so wrong.
But liberals really aren’t too picky in what they believe about conservative women, as long as it’s ugly. How else to explain the play that allegations against then South Carolina Gubenatorial candidate Nikki Haley got back in 2010. Just before the primary that year, a conservative blogger alleged he had an affair with the married mother of two. Will Folks, the blogger, offered no proof, but that didn’t stop the story from going national.
Later, another man, a lobbyist who worked for her opponent, claimed to have had a one-night stand with Haley, again without proof. CNN dutifully reported it. But even Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” tore the allegation apart.
Gunning for Malkin
Malkin, who Rolling Stone’s Taibbi had his disgusting fantasies about, has a particular luck for being victimized by violent liberal misogyny.
In 2009, Keith Olbermann, then of MSNBC, compared Malkin to a “big, mashed up bag of meat with lipstick on it” during his “Countdown” show because he believed she encouraged death threats made to a woman who posted a video of singing their praises to President Barack Obama.
“She received death threats and hate-filled voicemails all thanks to the total mindless, morally bankrupt, knee-jerk fascistic hatred, without with Michelle Malkin would just be a big mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it,” Olbermann stated.
That might seem mild, after a Toronto Star columnist called for Malkin’s shooting. Antonia Zerbisias wrote in April of 2009, “Forget the Marxists. I wish the marksmen would take @MichelleMalkin. I'm thinking Dick Cheney. He's such a great shot,” Zerbisias wrote on Twitter.

This leads on to the current Martin Bashirs apology to Sarah Palin.  I doubt he even wrote it. Imagine if a Conservative host had said the same thing about Obama. Would Obama have accepted the apology and would that conservative host be given a pass? We on the right know that answer. The Media would be demanding the dismissal of any conservative host that makes any negative comments on Obama or anyone on the Left. A double standard exists and the leftwing media supports it.  

Harry Reid commented about Obama being a light skinned negro. Yet Reid remains the top dog in the Senate.

Sipping Vodka


This is too funny - I still have tears in my eyes.

A new Priest at histomorrow morningfirst mass was so nervous he could hardly speak.  After mass he asked the Monsignor how he had done.


The Monsignor replied, "When I am worried about getting nervous on the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass.  If I start to get nervous, I take a sip.."


So next Sunday he took the Monsignor's advice..  At the beginning of the sermon, he got nervous and took a drink..  He proceeded to talk up a storm.


Upon his return to his office after the mass, he found the following note on the door:


1)  Sip the vodka, don't gulp.

2)  There are 10 commandments, not 12..

3)  There are 12 disciples, not 10...

4)  Jesus was consecrated, not constipated.

5)  Jacob wagered his donkey, he did not bet his ass.

6)  We do not refer to Jesus Christ as the late J.C..

7)  The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not referred to as Daddy, Junior and the Spook.

8)  David slew Goliath; he did not kick the shit out of him..

9)  When David was hit by a rock and was knocked off his donkey, don't say he was stoned off his ass.

10)  We do not refer to the cross as the 'Big T.'

11)  When Jesus broke the bread at the last supper he said,"Take this and eat it for this is my body.."   He did not say,"Eat me."

12)  The Virgin Mary is not called 'Mary with the Cherry'.

13)  The recommended grace before a meal is not: Rub-A-Dub-Dub thanks for the grub, Yeah God.

14)  Next Sunday there will be a taffy pulling contest at St. Peter's not a peter pulling contest at St. Taffy's.

NY Teachers Union Chief: Common Core is Child Abuse

November 17, 2013

To the applause of those in the room, a New York teachers union president slammed the state’s Common Core policy as “child abuse.”
Beth Dimino, President of the Port Jefferson Station Teachers Association, appeared to speak at a Common Core forum held on November12 at the Ward Melville High School in East Setauket, New York. Dimino is also a science teacher in the Comsewogue School District.
The 16-year-teacher blasted Common Core and said that even “psychologists” are now maintaining that the new, fashionable educational policy is harming children.
I’m a teacher in the state of New York, and as such I am a mandated reporter. And I’m here to report that we are abusing children in the state of New York. (Applause).
There is now a common core syndrome. Do you understand what that means? We have children that are being diagnosed by psychologists with a syndrome directly related to work they do in the classroom. If that’s not child abuse, I don’t know what is.
I’m very happy Miss Tisch that you’re here, because I have fifty letters with me and I’ve mailed you three hundred others asking for Mr. King’s resignation and firing.
I have no problem being judged by anyone. I was judged as ‘highly effective’ last year as Dr. Joe Relick can attest to. Obviously Mr. King, you’re ineffective – 70% of the children in this state failed your test.
I appreciate, Mr. Flanagan, that you’re listening. But I’m not sure you’re hearing. So what I’m going to tell you is, because you’ve awoken the mommies you’re in trouble. What’s going to happen is that hundreds of thousands of mommies are going to fill out this form and they are going to have their children refuse to take the test, because the mommies in New York don’t abuse their children. And they’re not going to let bullies do that either.
Rusty Weiss from MentalRecession spoke to the teacher after her appearance at the meeting and she reiterated her charge that psychologists are discovering that Common Core is hurting kids.
“They are seeing younger and younger children in their offices for high stress related problems because of the child’s exposure to the testing,” she said.
Here is another…

50 dead as Boeing 737 crash lands in Kazan, Russia

November 17, 2013

The Wall Street Journal reports that private insurance provider United Health is dropping thousands of doctors from its Medicare Advantage networks. Medicare Advantage is very popular with senior citizens, but United Health says that "government cuts" will "leave many elderly patients unsure whether they need to switch plans to continue seeing their doctors."

The insurer said in October that underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company's other healthcare business. The company also reported spending more healthcare premiums on medical claims in the third quarter, due mainly to government cuts to payments for Medicare Advantage services.
The Journal report said that doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing "significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment." According to the notices, the terminations can be appealed within 30 days.
President Obama promised every American they could keep their doctor under ObamaCare. This is another promise not being kept, this time for legions of senior citizens. United Health President Austin Pittman attributed the decision to drop all these doctors directly to ObamaCare:
Financial pressures from the U.S. government are pushing UnitedHealth Group to drop thousands of doctors, the firm's president said.

"That's what's driving our actions. It's no secret that we are under substantial funding pressure from the federal government," said President Austin Pittman.
Democrats and the media will do their best to claim that ObamaCare had nothing to do with the decision by United Health to drop thousands of doctors,  but that is just not going to fly. The American people know that ObamaCare was built to be The Great Healthcare Disruptor. And senior citizens know that in order to pay for ObamaCare, Democrats raided over $700 billion from Medicare, most of it from Medicare Advantage.
From the Wall Street Journal: [emphasis added]
UnitedHealth Group reported a third-quarter profit of $1.57 billion last month, butChief Executive Stephen J. Hemsley has issued cautious outlooks for 2014, citing expected cuts in Medicare payments tied to the Affordable Care Act.
Medicare Advantage, an alternative to traditional Medicare, combines hospital and doctor coverage and often includes prescription drugs and perks like gym memberships. Enrollment has more than doubled since 2004 to 13 million in 2012, which represents about 27% of Americans on Medicare.
The federal government pays private insurers a per-capita fee to manage the benefits. The rate is currently about 12% more than the average Medicare patient spends annually. The Obama administration plans to cut those extra payments to insurers by about $150 billion over the next 10 years to help pay for the health law. Some experts expect enrollment in Medicare Advantage plans to decline sharply if that occurs.
Because President Obama delayed the employer mandate, the worst of ObamaCare has not yet hit. We are only at the beginning of a rolling catastrophe. Once the employment market gets walloped next year, a few million people having their insurance canceled and a few million senior citizens losing their doctors will look like the good old days.

This is only the beginning of the end of healthcare as we know it. This proves out another lie by Obama. If you like your doctor, you can keep them.

Navigators gone wild

November 14, 2013
I’ll have more in the morning about the non-fix fix. I’ve been out of pocket all afternoon and evening.
So for now, just sit back and enjoy some move Obamacare navigator fraud via James O’Keefe’sProject Veritas:
Project Veritas caught Obamacare Navigators counseling applicants to lie on their applications, which is cheating the federal government, the American taxpayer, and the countless families who truly need quality health care.
But critics are saying the video wasn’t in context and it was just an isolated incident. Certainly, our encounters might have been isolated, so we decided to visit with even more Navigators (who are funded by your hard-earned tax dollars).
And what did we find? Watch the video below and see for yourself!
Even worse, we learned that many agencies will have access to your private records after you submit your application.

Hamas calls to "uproot the Jews" from Israel

Elder of Ziyon
November 14, 2013 
rom AP:
A year after a bruising Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip, southern Israel has sprung back to life, and the frequent rocket fire that once plagued the region has nearly stopped. But it's Hamas, not the Israelis who are celebrating.
Maybe because Israelis don't celebrate wars, including those they won, while the Arab honor/shame mentality forces them to celebrate wars that they lost?

By any objective measure Israel won the mini-war in Gaza last year. The point was to stop rocket fire and, for the most part, that goal was met. Gaza terrorists fired over 150 projectiles towards Israel in the last two weeks of October last year - and about 50 in 2013 altogether.

AP had a golden opportunity to explain Arab culture here, and dropped the ball.

Interior Minister Fathi Hamad, who commands Hamas' security forces in Gaza, called on Arabs in the Gaza Strip, West Bank and Israel to unite in a holy war to “uproot the Jews” from Israel.

“A third intifada is approaching,” he said, using the term for past Palestinian uprisings against Israel. “Liberation is coming and victory is coming.”
This quote is confirmed by Arab sources.

Apologists for Hamas, from "Students for Justice in Palestine" to Richard Falk to Jimmy Carter, never seem to find a way to condemn its explicit Jew-hatred.

The Toothbrush Salesman

    The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were all very excited.
    Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk
on salesmanship.

    Little Sally led off. "I sold Girl Scout cookies and I  made $30"
she said proudly, "My sales approach was to appeal  to the customer's
civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success."
    "Very  good," said the teacher.
    Little Debbie was next. "I sold magazines" she said, "I made $45
and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on
    "Very   good, Debbie", said the teacher.
    Eventually, it was Little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her
breath. Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped
a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467", he said.
    "$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?"
    "Toothbrushes", said Little Johnny. "Toothbrushes",  echoed the
teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make
that much money?"
    "I found the busiest corner in town", said Little Johnny, "I set
up a Dip & Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free
    They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog poop!"
Then I  would say, "It is dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush? I used the
President Obama method of giving you some crap, dressing it up so it
looks good, telling you it's free and then making you pay to get the
bad taste out of your mouth."
    Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment. Bless his heart
