Israel can show no reciprocal benefits and gains from granting Palestinians autonomy (and other efforts to make peace) as they continue their violent anti-Israel Koran inspired jihad (backed by most Moslem states) kidnapping and murdering Israeli Jews and launching missile attacks on Israeli towns and cities-which have sparked two bloody wars in Gaza (2008 and 2014) where hundreds have been killed and injured with property damage in the millions. Driven by racism, cultural imperialism and religious intolerance the implacable Palestinians are hell-bent on Israel's destruction and will settle for nothing less.
What this means in summation is this: when it comes to peacemaking in the Middle East Israel has the best record of any nation being the greatest force for peace, justice and stability in the region. Anyone who believes otherwise and can prove me wrong showing me a greater peacemaker in the region will receive a $1000 cash reward.
If Saul Alinsky had been alive on the historic night of November 4, 2008 the old, feeble 99 year old Chicagoan radical might have died in Grant Park from a massive coronary as his greatly aged socialist heart might not have been able to endure the excitement, euphoria and jubilation of Barack Hussein Obama winning the presidency. For Obama is an absolute, head to toe, fanatically crazed, crackpot Alinskyite-or ALINSKY STEALTH SOCIALIST (ASS)-plotting, conniving and lying at every turn to undermine, pull down, subvert and diminish our horribly unjust, polluting, racist, oppressive free enterprise system and replace it with THE UTOPIAN DREAM: a state created all-inclusive egalitarian progressive paradise of social, economic, green energy using equals with shared wealth, open borders, and the end of America as a nation-state and warmongering global superpower.
Indeed, Election Day 2008 would have been the happiest moment and apogee of Saul Alinsky’s anti-American radical life; a day of dreamed political fulfillment which he undoubtedly would have likened to the Russian Revolution of 90 years before-believing that president 44, his faithful black disciple and Chicago community agitator, was the nonviolent, American version of Vladimir Lenin; and that his vision of a bloodless socialist revolution-working by stealth and deceit through the system-had finally come.
ALINSKY, OBAMA AND THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
Saul David Alinsky was born January 30, 1909 (Franklin Roosevelt’s 27th birthday) to Russian Jewish immigrants in Chicago eight years before the Russian Revolution. Barack Obama, his disciple and future 44th US president, was born August 4, 1961 the year when the totalitarian Soviet state, founded in 1917, would celebrate its 44th anniversary of trying and failing to create heaven on earth through an omnipotent, monstrously oppressive, centralized socialist state.
Though Obama’s Alinsky Revolution and transformational agenda (now in its sixth year) is going the predictable way of all such ventures and miserably failing it is fascinating to note that the number of days separating the births of Alinsky and Obama are exactly 19,179 (see note below)- a five digit number encoded with the ominous number 1917 signifying the terrible year during World War I when Lenin and his Bolshevik gangsters seized control of Russia in what was to be the greatest failed social experiment in human history-an experiment which Aliniskyites like Obama insanely want to repeat over and over and over again (in different variations) hoping against hope by some miracle or accident they will finally succeed.
You will notice that 19,179, which gives us the revolutionary year 1917, is 52 years, 6 months and 5 days. 52 is a variant of the number 7 (5+2 =7), and 6 + 5 = 11. 11-7-1917 is the complete date denoting the start of the Russian Soviet Socialist Revolution.
FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS
Now on December 31, 1905, 160 weeks (40 x 4 = 160) before Saul Alinsky’s birth, future pro-Soviet mentor of Barack Obama Frank Marshall Davis was born. Born and raised in Arkansas City, Kansas Davis (a black communist poet and writer) became a community organizer and member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) in Saul Alinsky’s Chicago on April 14, 1943 when he was 37 years old (37x12 =444) ; and in 1948 (at the suggestion of fellow black communist Paul Robeson) Davis moved to Honolulu, Hawaii to continue his subversive work. In the mid-1970s (the decade of Alinsky’s death ) Obama's grandfather Stanley Dunham introduced his grandson to Davis believing he’d make a good role model for him. Amazingly, Dunham and Davis lived some 50 miles apart in Kansas before migrating to Hawaii where they first met; and retracing Davis’s steps Obama become a community organizer in Chicago-Davis most likely inspired him in this.
Now here is where it gets profound as providence, I believe, has given us a certain sign that the 44th President of the United States is not just an Alinsky Stealth Socialist but FRANK DAVIS’S IDEOLOGICAL CLONE-and that Obama at heart (in reality and truth) is every bit the communist quack his black pro-Soviet mentor was.
For in 1943 when Davis joined the Chicago chapter of the CPUSA his membership number was 47544-a five digit number ending in 44 Obama’s presidency number. But utterly mind-boggling is the fact that when Obama was sworn in as our 44th president he was exactly 47 years, 5 months and 16 days old (see note below). What is mind-boggling is that 47, the number of years, and 5, the number of months, exactly correspond to the first three digits of Davis’s Communist Party number. But it doesn’t end there. Amazingly, 16, the remaining number of days, is the square of 4 or 4 x 4 giving us two fours as in the doublet number 44.
You couldn’t ask for a more powerful numeric sign that US Communist Party member 47544 (the undisguised communist Frank Davis) given our system of checks and balances, would be governing much like his disciple Barack Obama (just as intransigently, arrogantly, immaturely and ineptly-but probably less timidly (more openly and honestly) if he were president 44.

BARACK OBAMA SR AND ANN DUNHAM
Like Frank Davis Obama’s mother and father, Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr., were both pro-Soviet communist haters of America like their son wanting to transform, socialize and replace the system. Now as Dunham and Obama saw Russia not America as the truly exceptional nation and hope for the world fate, in late 1960, brought them together in a Russian language class at Hawaii University where they fell in love. They married in February 1961 and their son Barack Jr was born six months later.
Now Barack Obama Sr. was born in Kenya in the significant and extraordinary year of 1936. This was significant in that, following Franklin Roosevelt, it anticipates his son’s reelection to a second term despite a bad economy; and is extraordinary for his being the father of the 44th president. I say this because the number 1936 is 44 squared, or 44 x 44 (see)-as if it were Obama Sr’s destiny to father the future, two term 44th US president.
Now there is nothing relevant to Barack Obama’s political destiny as our first cypto-communist president in his mother’s date of birth. But on the day his mother died, and the number of days separating her birth and death, something truly remarkable and relevant appears. For in the decade that the Soviet Union ceased to exist, exactly 3 years, 10 months and 12 days after it disappeared from history, Ann Dunham died on 11-7-1995-the 78th anniversary of the Russian Revolution-an amazing day for the mother of America’s first radical left Alinskyite president to die.
But just as amazing are the number of days separating Ann Dunham’s birth from her death; for these total to exactly 19336-a five digit number encoded with the year 19336 indicating the start of Franklin Roosevelt’s presidency and the New Deal*, and 19(3)36 the year of FDR’s reelection with a bad economy and (as we saw above) the square of 44 (44x44) denoting her son’s presidency number.
*After Obama’s inauguration in 2009 the liberal media called him the “New FDR” with a “new New Deal” for America.
But there’s more. From the day of Ann Dunham’s death (the 78th anniversary of the Russian Socialist Revolution) to her son’s election as 44th president was 4746 days. Another strange coincidence as Obama at age 46 seized his party’s nomination for president; and then won the presidency at age 47.

BARACK OBAMA AND THE DEATH OF THE UTOPIAN DREAM
If the feeble, frail 99 year old Saul Alinsky had managed to survive the excitement and jubilation of Obama’s 2008 election and were still alive today he’d probably be on his death bed dying of grief at his epically failing disciple and the cataclysmic mess he’s making of this country and the revolution. Six years into Obama’s radical left presidency and Alinsky would be miserable over the rising tide of failures, scandals, and crises overwhelming him and the country: the economy, healthcare, border chaos, the VA, Benghazi and IRS scandals, the rise of ISIS, Russian aggression, mass murder in Syria, Israel’s invasion of Gaza, etc . Indeed, with the progressive messiah losing his trust and credibility with the American people Alinsky would be sick unto death and frightened for the socialist future; frightened that he was wrong about his disciple; frightened he was the wrong man with the wrong stuff at the right time in history for seizing the revolutionary moment when building the omnipotent nanny state was possible.
Indeed, Obama's falling painfully short of the transformational expectations that he raised as a candidate and president-elect; falling painfully short of the standard set by Alinsky himself for a revolutionary leader: the great charismatic personality who exudes confidence, power and vision; who enthralls the masses with his rhetoric and bends them to his will as they eat out of his hand. For the mediocre Barack Obama is not such a man and could never be such a man: he’s charismatic light and a poor, ineffective speaker who projects an image of weakness, cluelessness, confusion, uncertainty and drift. By now Alinsky’s image of Obama, the fantasy view of a national and world social redeemer held by millions during the campaign, would be shattered as he fails every test of character and leadership and sinks like a stone in domestic and international esteem...with fewer and fewer people taking him seriously.
Indeed, by now Alinsky would be disillusioned with Obama and dying of grief; he’d be moaning that the revolution is imperiled and Obama, the Savior of Hope and Change, has become its worst nightmare-setting back by generations all the progress that’s been made in radicalizing the government, the universities, the media and culture. No, Alinsky’s jubilation on Election Day would have evaporated by now as doubt and gloom set in that he’s lived his life in vain; and that his vision of a bloodless revolution in America is gone forever never to return ruined by Barack Obama who's causing
THE DEATH OF THE UTOPIAN DREAM.
BARACK OBAMA IS THE SIGN
THE LEFT IS INITS END TIME
"THERE'S NOT A SINGLE STITCH OF EVIDENCE
that the microseismic events caused by fracking (equivalent to dropping a gallon of milk on the floor) has influence over major seismic activity" says Stanford University Geophysicist and hydraulic fracturing expert Mark Zoback-a former Obama administration Energy Department advisor (see). Indeed, frigging anti-fracking nuts can't name one single major earthquake caused by fracking-which originate from stess buildup occuring miles below the surface (well below where fracking is done). NOT ONE!
NEVERTHELESS, FRACKING HAS ITS OTHER PERILS
AND MUST STOP NOW TO AVOID SUCH
1. Reduced dependency on foreign oil.
2. Increased employment
3. Economic growth
Fracking strikes at the heart of Obama's (the Left's) crackpot scheme to create a more perfect dependency Union on government and must be lied about, demonized and outlawed. To this I say:
Fred Barnes posted an excellent piece on the The Weekly Standard about Barack Obama's self-destructive pigheadedness called "Stubbornness as Governance (see)" where he notes that Obama doubling down on stupidity and policies that don't work "refusing to change his mind" at any and all costs is a "habit" or second nature with him. Anticipating Barne's article I posted the following piece on Townhall five years ago which predicted Hussein Obama's enduring Saddam/Allende-like intransigence on domestic issues and foreign policy which is driving his presidency to tragedy and ruin, and the nation and world into turmoil
2009-03-13 09:41:41.000 -- THE MAN WITH THE MIDDLE NAME HUSSEIN, OR BARACK HUSSEIN ALLENDE
Barack Hussein Obama rode the wave of the anti-Iraq war movement into history as America's first black president. If Saddam Hussein wasn't toppled by US led forces there would be no President B. Hussein Obama today. The man with the middle name “Hussein” opposed Bush's plan to depose Saddam naïvely believing that he could have been stopped, tamed and contained-a completely mistaken idea as Saddam's global terrorist activities were uncontainable and growing at the time of his downfall ; and he never relinquished his nuclear ambitions as proved by the nuclear scientists, technicians and engineers that remained on Saddam's payroll.
But is it happenstance, I wonder, that Obama shares the name of the ill-fated, delusional, self-destructive dictator? The Arab name "Hussein?" Is Obama's middle name a clue to divining his character and destiny? A warning sign to himself and the nation about his fate if he goes too far in his ambitions to Europeanize, collectivize and socialize capitalist America and weakening our country?
When comparing the two men I notice that Obama shares with Saddam three very troubling traits: hubris, ideological intransigence and recklessness. Could it be that like Saddam no disaster is too big or catastrophe too great to wake Obama up and bring him to his senses before it's too late? Could it be that like Saddam nothing but Obama's politcal undoing and tragic downfall will stop him? Is Obama so hopelessly blinded by ideology, narcissism and illusions of grandeur that he can't change course but will pursue to the bitter end his radical plans for transforming America unmindful of the disastrous consequences to himself, the country and world? It sure looks that way.
Take Saddam Hussein's monumental hubris and recklessness: the Iran-Iraq War and a million dead; the Gulf War and his army in ruins; bombings, embargoes, sanctions killing scores of Iraqi children and civilians; George W. Bush with the gun of U.S. power to his head; suffering all these blows and faced with being deposed Saddam never relented or repented; never gave way to despair or defeat; never doubted his mission and destiny, never disbelieved in the rightness of his cause: Pan-Arab Nationalism-the cause of becoming king and savior of the once proud, mighty, conquering Arab race-saving it from disunity, powerlessness and poverty and the intolerable humiliation of the Zionist scourge. A U.S. led invasion to disarm and destroy him? No problem! Saddam would go underground, lead a Sunni insurgency to victory driving out the infidel invaders-causing them a new Vietnam-and fulfill his heroic destiny of being master of the Middle East, the Joseph Stalin of Arabia. It was all so certain, all so clear: “Shock and Awe” was his royal road to victory and immortality. Saddam was intransigence incarnate, nothing on earth could stop him from pursuing his evil dreams until he was cornered like a rat climbing out of a hole and ended his days dangling from a rope.
Indeed, the Barack Hussein Obama who once arrogantly told a female reporter that “I never doubt myself” has Saddam's hubris, intransigence and ideological certainty; he is as fanatically bent-short of murdering his foes-to impose his ruinous programs on America as was Saddam his plans to conquer Arabia and socialize it under his iron-fisted rule. Fueled by passion for social justice and the utopian imbecilities of the welfare-entitlement state; driven by a desire to weaken and humble America and make it loved by a hostile and envious world, Obama is blindly bent on exceeding the failures and follies of the past: exceeding the disaster of Hooverism, the failed depression-prolonging New Deal, the folly and catastrophe of LBJ's War on Poverty, and the ruinous Clinton/Cuomo spread the wealth homeownership program for minorities which nearly sunk our economy-and clinched the presidency for Obama. Indeed, when his mistaken efforts to fix the economy fail Obama will pick himself up and try failure all over again with greater spending, higher taxes, power grabs and regulations-he will double down on stupidity with renewed ideological zeal believing he is morally right and make a terrible mess of things.
Obama is all sail and no anchor; borne aloft so he believes by “righteous winds” of change and destiny, only his death or removal from power will stop him as it stopped Saddam. Am I speaking of insurrection? of counter-revolution? of a military coup with blood in the streets? an American Thermidor? God forbid it should come to that! We’re a civilized people; a nation of ballots not bombs; angry not violent peacefully electing and deposing our leaders and would be kings-and that is how it should be.
BARACK HUSSEIN ALLENDE
But I fear that this stupid man, this calm determined unbending fool, who thirsts for socialist glory and transformational change, is willing to go for broke; I fear that he is willing to cast reason and caution to the winds and become the American Salvador Allende: the Marxist senator turned president of Chile, who defiantly implemented his radical agenda against the will of the Chilean people and threw his country into turmoil and war. Will Obama go for broke and take this reckless course becoming the most decisively partisan president in memory?
If so, if B. Hussein Obama is that unyielding, intransigent and ideologically deranged (as I believe he is) hell-bent at whatever cost on saving America from itself and the world from America, then he could meet with a terrible end joining Salvador Allende and Saddam Hussein on the ash heap of failed leftist leaders who died with their dreams turned to dust (see notes 1, 2 and 3)*.
*I do not perceive in Obama any taste for violence and bloodshed, and here is where he differs from Saddam. But the democratically elected Salvador Allende, a physician by profession, started out, like Obama, on the path of bloodless revolution but ended up defending his cause on the barricades with a gun. LIke Allende Obama lives for the egalitarian/socialist ideal of a classless society of equals through redistribution of wealth; it's central to his moral universe; and like Allende (and Saddam) Obama seems committed to his vision unto death.
1.Those who see a “new LBJ” in Barack Obama will be interested to learn that Salvador Allende was born in 1908 and died in 1973 the same years Lyndon Johnson was born and died.
2. Salvador (the savior) Allende, like messiah Obama is doing now, rushed his revolutionary program to socialize Chile's economy trying to do too much too soon: nationalizing the banking and copper industries, getting control of the health care and educational systems and redistributing income and property to Chile's poor on a massive scale. Obama in his haste to revolutionize America resembles the rash, impatient, ruthless Allende. Allende exacerbated an already divided and polarized country and his programs made a shambles of Chile's economy causing soaring inflation, huge deficits and negative GDP growth.
3. Just as Obama is the third U.S. President to come directly from the Senate, the other two being Harding and Kennedy (who died in office), so was Salvador Allende a senator turned President-and like Harding and Kennedy he died before finishing his first term.
To answer Boehner's question: when Obama stops being the Michael Jackson of American Politics and grows up. Below is an article I published on Townhall in July 2009 titled, Barack Obama: The Michael Jackson of American Politics. In it I attempt to establish what has since come to pass: that Obama is practically incapable of growing into a competent president who can govern and effectively lead . After five and a half years in office Obama differs little from the man who botched his presidential oath. Barack Obama is a hopeless fool staying the course to disaster.
Strong manly patriotic American.
Perpetual child or Peter Pan unto death.
Teenage celebrity -in-chief: The world's most powerful adolesent helplessly and hopelessly immature like Michael Jackson.
Last November when the 1960s born Barack Obama defeated the anti-60s Vietnam hero John McCain for the 44th presidency it was the triumph of inexperience, immaturity and ignorance over its opposite in a country where adulthood is in crsis and the folly and callowness of youth have become the national ideal and cultural rage*. Last week singing legend Michael Jackson, America's perennial Peter Pan, died from a fatal heart attack his skeletal body poisoned and ruined by painkillers and prescription drugs. Once quoted as saying “I want to die like Elvis when it’s time for me to go,” Jackson got his inglorious wish as he exited this life in a pharmaceutical stupor. New Age health and meditation guru Deepak Chopra, a long time friend of Jackson's (who tried and failed to save him), said about his sudden death “it seemed almost fated." Seemed almost fated indeed.
* See Diana West’s superb book The Death of the Grown-Up: How America's Arrested Development Is Bringing Down Western Civilization
But what also seems fated was the timing of Jackson's death converging as it did with the early stages of the ill-starred, naïve, immature presidency of Barack Hussein Obama. I believe that Jackson's shocking death was not too soon but was providentially caused and linked to Obama's victory over McCain and, what appaers to me, his inescapable tragic destiny as a foolish, incompetent, unfit to command US president; providentially linked to the counterculture Sixties when (Obama was born and Jackson became a star) and the adolescent world view that sprung from that era and now dominates our culture and leadership in Congress and is leading us to ruin. But before I venture into this a few words about the similarities between Jackson and Obama:
Like the dead “King of Pop” Obama, “the new King Tut (the boy-king wonder of ancient Egypt, as some now call him (see))" is a skinny, black, timid, thin skinned, shallow world celebrity*; a teenage soul in a grown man's body wearing the empty, clueless vacuous face of youthful innocence and folly. The right man at the right time in history mirroring our country’s collapse into cowardice, femininity and infantilism, our crippling dependence on government and ominous weariness with war in a predatory world of jihadist killers like bin Laden, neo-imperialists like Putin, Chinese fascists and Iranian nuclear expansionists.
* Obama like Jackson is a superstar celebrity the only president in history to make the celebrity’s list where he is number one, as Bernie Goldberg says.
As was true of the talented, charismatic Jacko Obama is mostly image and little substance, plastic, inauthentic and unreal; a moral relativist lacking in truth and good principles, equating evil with good and right with wrong; a sensitive, soft spoken, pathetically gentle man who shies away from confrontation and wants to hug and appease our enemies; a king in the world but no master of himself; an incomplete adult with an exalted self-image who thinks he’s an awesome being; a man-child detached from reality and everyday life mentally dwelling in a fantasy realm of NEVER NEVERLAND (the world as it should be)*.
**Never Neverland is a fictional paradise where its inhabitants, Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys etc., cease to age. As Wikipedia says “It’s a metaphor for eternal childhood.”
As Jackson made a sickening mess of his life, turning himself into a near repulsive freak; mismanaging his finances, health and personal affairs; burning through an enormous fortune recklessly spending himself deeper into crushing debt; so is our radical leftist president (a political freak of nature) taking a wrecking ball to the economy, spending money like a drunken satyr (an extravagant Jacko on demorol cocktails) unmindful of the woeful consequences to the nation and future generations.
As Jackson's immense ego and narcissism hid from his view the damage he was doing to himself and others until it was too late (and he met with Elvis's fate), so will the malignantly narcissistic Obama (believing he’s right and can do no wrong) blindly press on with his reckless agenda regardless of the harm and turmoil it will cause to our economy, national security, world standing, and the peace and stabilithy of the world*).
*Obama has already hinted that there might be need for a second stimulus package if the first one fails-which shows us just how intransigent, ideologically driven and childishly ignorant he is in wanting to repeat failure over and over again.
Now Jackson, the child star who never grew up, was born on August 29, 1958 on John McCain's 22nd birthday* in the year that he entered the US Naval Academy; the year when his great story of prisoner heroism began-a story that could never have been lived in a thousand life times by an Obama or Michael Jackson. In August of 1968 when Diana Ross introduced Jackson and his four brothers to the public, and Obama’s Church in Honolulu was shielding deserters from the Vietnam War (see), John McCain began a terrible ordeal of torture and punishment in the hell of a communist jail. Later on when Tom Hayden and other antiwar traitors visited Hanoi to denounce their country McCain, though threatened with greater punishment, refused to meet with them saying that he had no regrets for his bombing runs and would gladly repeat them. Whatever one might think of McCain’s moderation and blind spots on domestic issues he is a solid conservative patriot on defense and military matters and represents the polar opposite of the mindless 1960s “make love not war” anti-military mentality of the weak effeminate pro-gay Left.
*McCain was born August 29, 1936 on a military base in Panama.
Indeed, Michael, the lead singer of the Jackson Five, hit the big time at age ten in 1968 the year of the counterculture youthquake of sex, drugs and rock n roll, where partying, staying young and never growing up became the new un-American ideal; and the one who succeeded best and most famously at achieving this ideal, or surpassing it altogether, was Michael Jackson the great kid performer who emotionally and mentally never left childhood; who spiritually never matured; whose adult life was an infantile romp through toyland while losing his innocence to drugs and pedophilia.
As if to tell us that Jackson's arrested emotional development, failed personal life and tragic end are emblematic of Obama's misguided presidency with its feminized, adolescent 1960s values and spaced out utopian idealism -and that McCain’s traditional values and military virtues are what’s needed to reverse our military, economic and moral decline and win the War on Terror-the King of Pop died 22 weeks into Obama's presidency on the 176th day of the year*. Now what is interesting and seems meaningful here is that the numbers 22 and 176 are related to the number 44, Obama’s presidency number, as a factor and multiple; and that 176 itself is a factor of the number 1936 (44x44) oddly corresponding to the year of John McCain’s birth ** when America had a real manly stalwart leader (FDR) who carried us to victory in World War II. Though Obama has been called the "new FDR" in comparison he's a mental and moral pipsqueak.
* January 20, 2009 (Obama’s inaugural) to June 25 (Jackson’s death) is 156 days or 22 weeks. January 1, 2009 to June 25=176 days
** 22x2=44, 44x4=176 and 176x11=1936.
The days of Jackson’s birth and death relevant as they are to Obama’s inept and feckless juvenile presidency and John McCain’s heroic military career indicates I believe the coming miserable collapse of the political and cultural Left and its childish, 1960s, Neverland (We are the World) ideology and values*. This collapse is coming as sure as night follows day; and as sure as dawn follows night the founding values that made this country great will be revived and flourish again hastened by the catastrophe of Obama's presidency.
*Jackson’s career as a celebrity performer spans the period from the late 1960s to the first president born in the 1960s.
Indeed, after the coming catastrophe of the Three Blind Mice: Obama, Pelosi and Reid the nation will return to sobriety, sanity and reality in the areas where McCain is incontestably conservative and strong: federal spending, government waste, taxation, homeland security, national defense and foreign policy.
Those on the Right who are hoping for a sudden miraculous maturing of Obama into manhood-into a sensible leader and statesman in domestic policy and foreign affairs-are doomed to disappointment. Character is destiny and Obama can't escape his deficiencies and temperament; his mental confusion, immaturity and weak moral nature; from his Marxist mother, socialist mentors and twenty years of Reverned Wright, Bill Ayers and other radical pals Obama can't undo decades of secular-progressive indoctrination-the infantile mental disorder of Socialism-in less than four years or eight years. Just as Jackson proved unredeemable beyond anyone’s ability to save*, so is the fatally flawed Obama an unstoppable train wreck in slow motion; the magical mystery tour or Neverland express headed off a steep cliff. In short, the man in the White House is as hopelessly lost in his immaturity and folly as was King Michael in his bizarre and ruinous life. What Chopra said of Jackson is equally true of Obama: he is fated for a tragic end. In this way Barack Hussein Obama is the Michael Arthur Jackson of American politics.
*Despite his 20 year friendship with Jackson and expertise in alternative medicine and meditation techniques the compassionate, empathic, caring Deepak Chopra could do nothing for his friend.
FORWARD EMAILS TO
As genocidal, Jew-hating, Moslem Brotherhood, Nazi-Hamas rains down missiles by the hundreds upon the Jewish state, whose existence defies Allah, Islam and the Koran (and is a refutation of Islamic supremacism with its delusional destiny of world domination) an official of the Obama administration blames Israel for the ongoing conflict when all it wants is peace-like it has with neighboring Egypt and Jordan. But Israel was able to make peace with those two enemy states because it had what it currently lacks with the Palestinians: peace partners Anwar Sadat and King Hussein. Insistence by Obama that Israel has a peace partner in Mahmoud Abbas when his organization Fatah reunited politically with Hamas is emblematic of Obama's stupefying ignorance of the conflict and its underlying causes: Palestinian racism, cultural imperialism and religious intolerence as evily inspired by the Koran: a book of war and hate that teaches the Jews are hated by God above all peoples for their stubborn, pig-headed, devil inspired rejection of Islamic truth.
Now that Israel seems on the brink of harshly responding to Hamas's Islamist aggression by reinvading Gaza (as it necessarily did in 2008) it is instructive to reread what I wrote at the time HERE as I predicted Obama's destabilizing impact on the region from a freak blackout that hit Honolulu while he was there on vacation.
THE HONOLULU BLACKOUT AND GAZA WAR
While I’m on the subject of Obama’s mental blindness there was an incident in Hawaii which was, in my view, prophetically symbolic of his ignorance of and poor judgment in foreign affairs indicating that he'd make things worse as president-especially on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which he will likely aggravate.
On December 26th, six days into the Obama family's Christmas vacation in Oahu, Hawaii Honolulu (and Oahu) suffered a massive power outage that put the Obamas in the dark for 11 hours. This wouldn’t be of any interest but for the fact that four and a half hours into the blackout Israeli defense forces started Operation Cast Lead, Israel’s secretly planned military campaign against missile firing Hamas murderers in Gaza. As Obama was physically in the dark when Israel struck the blackout was emblematic of his staggering ignorance, naïvety and blindness on the Middle East, and especially on the racial, cultural and religious dynamics underlying the Palestinian/Arab-Israeli conflict[for which there is no solution save the kind of moral change Anwar Sadat underwent due to the great loses he suffered and realization that Israel was here to stay.]
Indeed, this blindness was evident when Obama kept silent during the Gaza War and refused to join George Bush (perhaps the most pro-Israeli US President in history) in condemning Hamas. This signaled Obama's coming policy of evenhanded neutrality-of playing the so-called honest broker once in power in a conflict of good versus evil. As the honest broker game was played to death by Bill Clinton to his regret, with Yassir Arafat backstabbing him and starting a war, returning to it is madness and could only have the same bad outcome. The Honolulu blackout was an ominous sign warning us in advance about the destructive impact of Obama's extreme naivety and misguided policies in the region. It was a warning that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the turbulent, volcanic Middle East will likely explode during his presidency plunging him and his administration into helpless turmoil.
Back in April 2009 I posted the following article on Townhall predicting from Obama's first trip to Mexico a crisis for his administration coming from that country. First there was Operation Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal. But now overshadowing that is the rising flood of disease ridden, lice infested Central American children streaming into our country from Mexico seeking to be reunited with their illegal alien parents.
Amazingly, later that day after posting this article Air Force 1 buzzed lower Manhatten frightening New Yorkers that they might be under another 9/11-type terror attack. The man who ordered the flight for a photo shoot was Louis Caldera, a Mexican-American official in the Obama administration. You can read the article here.
BTW, back in July 2009 in a short article which I'm not republishing I coined the term "Borderporosis" to denote the crisis of our porous borders as a kind of disease that Obama & the Dems for political reasons care nothing about curing. No one has used this term since; but it should be used to hammer the president with.
Obama and Calderon in Mexico as Swine Flu is raging.
2009-04-27 06:43:00.000 -- OBAMA'S TRIP TO MEXICO, THE DEADLY SWINE FLU AND THE DEATH OF AN ARCHEOLOGIST
Will the Republic of Mexico prove to be an inauspicious country and source of serious trouble for our ill-starred president and his leftist administration now or in the years ahead? It certainly looks that way. On April 16 Obama visited Mexico simultaneous to the outbreak of the Mexican Swine Flu which has killed dozens of Mexicans and crossed the border into the US where it has infected scores of citizens. Will this become a serious public health crisis poorly managed by the administration, like Bush botched Katrina-as Hugh Hewitt surmised? Or is it a portent and warning sign of some other evil that will emerge from Mexico to hurt Obama and his tragedy-in-the-making presidency? A biological terrorist attack perhaps? Or something to do with the violent terrorist mass murdering drug cartels? Or the flood of illegal immigrants growing catastrophically worse and creating all kinds of problems for us? The signs are foreboding and Obama must take heed.
Indeed, after he concluded his meeting with President Calderon Obama visited a museum of anthropology in Mexico City. There he was greeted by a distinguished archeologist named Felipe Solis who gave him a grand tour of the place. Reports say that Solis came down with flu-like symptoms within 24 hours of shaking Obama's hand then died a week later(see).
If a terrible epidemic mismanaged by the administration doesn't come out of Mexico to hurt Obama will something else emerge from that country to plague and scandalize him? I ask this because April 16 was the 86th day of Obama's presidency a number which symbolizes the 86th year of the 20th century. This was the year when the Iran-Contra affair came to light to scandalize and bedevil Ronald Reagan in his second term (see) [and when Reagan signed into law a sweeping immigration reform bill that granted amnesty to three million illegal aliens]*.
* Iran-Contra was leaked to a Lebanese mag on November 3, 1986, Ronald Reagan's fifth year in office. Amazingly the Simpson-Mazzoli ct granting amnesty to illegals was signed by Reagan three days later on November 6th.
Will some scandal related to Mexico be Obama's political undoing hindering or completely killing his chances of reelection? Or if, God forbid, he should manage to be reelected like Reagan will a crisis out of Mexico become a serious scandal for him in his second term? We shall see.
The White House issuing a statement concerning the swine flu assures us that: "It's not a time to panic." We can trust that Obama has everything under control and that panicking is unnecessary. To ease our fears Obama has instructed DHS Chief Napalitano to leave the borders with Mexico open and not test those who are returning. If a pandemic breaks out and thousands die because of this policy don't worry, don't panic, keep cool like Obama; he can be trusted to save the day with a new pork laden multi-billion dollar spending bill called: the American Recovery From Pig Flu Act. Keep the borders open and the traffic flowing. There could be an opportunity here.
Barack Obama and his wife Michele are typical radical leftist malcontents at war with America and its founding; at war with July 4th and the Spirit of 1776 and practically everything it represents; at war with the revolution of individual rights and responsible personal liberty that rose up courageously against government coercion, unfair taxation, oppression and tyranny. They are at war with the Founders of the greatest, most exceptional and prosperous nation and liberating force in history and are deeply ashamed of them, not just for being wealthy white slave owners who fought and killed Indians, but for not being more like the white, prosperous, bourgeois revolutionary leaders of 18th century France with their radical leftist utopian creed of government created social perfection summed up in the motto LIBERTY EQUALITY FRATERNITY: "LIBERTY" meaning freedom from want; "EQUALITY" meaning a classless society of economic and social equals; "FRATERNITY" meaning national kumbaya with everyone loving each other selflessly serving in unity the common good as defined by the state-the object of worship as a terrestrial god and supreme good on earth.
Barack and Michele Obama the statist enemies of America's founding and its limited government free market Fathers believe it's their mission, purpose and destiny (as first man and first lady) to be the founding father and mother of a new America, a truly just America, the right America as it should and ought to be; of a Frenchified and Europeanized America; an un-American America of radical equality and redistributed wealth and unbridled, reckless, anything goes, moral anarchy and individualism; an America remade, transformed and reborn according to the redeeming principles of the French Revolution and its communist/socialist/progressive government supremacist descendents.
In short, true, real, authentic INDEPENDENCE DAY for the Obamas (the greatest day in modern world history) isn't America's July 4th founding, but France's July 14th upheaval-the first leftist revolution in history when the Bastille was stormed by a violent mob of bloodthirsty savages wanting to tear apart every member of the Old Regime of King, Aristocracy and Church. Wise, civilized, Christian and Classically disciplined and trained liberty-loving men fathered the American Revolution and founded the first and only American Republic which endures to this day. A demonic, frenzied Church hating mob started the First French Republic which lasted ten years until it collapsed; yet the ideologically blind Obamas and ignorant fascist Left prefer the French savages with their failed experiment to the Founders and their longstanding success. Why? Because after 238 years America still isn't perfect, which proves to them how terribly flawed and wrong the Founders were; and though the savage French mobs unleashed a nightmare of terror and death that ended with the tyranny of Napoleon and the ruination of France, they are preferable to the Founders for the Left; this is because wanting to use government to create heaven on earth ( "a republic of reason and virtue" where everyone is wise and good) their hearts at least were in the right place and politically correct.
France has had five republics in two centuries, America has only had one with the same Constitution amended now and then-and the Obamas and the Left believe that the Founders are holding us back from paradise, that we are lagging behind Europe and the French and have much catching up to do; and that America must be founded anew-with a new Constitution and Bill of Rights for an all-caring, comprehensive, cradle to grave nanny security state: THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC II-which would be as broke and bankrupt in a few years as socialist Greece or liberal Democrat Detroit.
But the future of America doesn't belong to Obama and the Left and their crackpot vision of a French Revolution here. A certain auspicious sign, in my view, that Providence isn't on their side of the ideological divide was the birth of their first daughter on the day they most abhor: July 4, 1995 16 years ago Malia Obama was born; and that the day of her birth to the most un-American president and first lady ever is a vindication of the Founders' creed (of limited government, balanced budgets, moral restraint and economic freedom) is indicated I believe in that July 4, 1995 was the 222nd birthday of our founding-a number that completes the date of our history changing revolutionary year. For when the triplet number 222 is multiplied by 8 it gives us 1776.
On the 4th day of July the 44th president's eldest daughter celebrated her 16th birthday ( 4x4=16). It was also the 1991st day of Obama's unfit to command presidency. That gives us the year when the Soviet Union disappeared from history-which lies at the root of Russia's annexation of Crimea and the fighting in the Ukraine; and it was the year Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. This led to the Gulf War and 12 years later to Operation Iraqi Freedom and Saddam's downfall. The events in the Ukraine and especially in Iraq with the rise of ISIS are taking its toll on Obama's anti-July 4th downward plunging presidency.
YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST READ THIS
Presidents Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Monroe
That our nation’s leaders and destiny are under the watchful eye of God Almighty and His special Providence was Divinely and infallibly revealed to us, as Daniel Webster said (see), when John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the second and third Presidents (the two Founding Fathers most responsible for the writing and ratification of the Declaration of Independence) died just hours apart in 1826 on the 50th anniversary of Independence Day-the historic, world changing day that they founded. What has gone unnoticed in this amazing event is the uncanny numerical signs given to us that day especially in the correspondence between the date July 4, 1776, when Congress adopted the Declaration, and the two principle Founder’s (Jefferson and Adams) near simultaneous deaths. What I mean is this:
When the single digits of the date 7-4-1776 are added together it gives us (as you shall see) the profoundly significant number 32, which is the number that signifies America, hence:
1459931=32 (see notes)
Mere chaotic coincidence? If that was all, perhaps. But there is more, much more. Read on and judge for yourself:
John Adams our 2nd President and Jefferson our 3rd died in reverse order that July 4th day giving us the number 32. In other words, as 3 precedes 2 in the number 32 Jefferson, the greater and more important of the two Founders, was the first to leave this world.
As if foreshadowing the order of their deaths the friendship of Jefferson and Adams began when they first met at the Second Continental Congress in May 1775. Amazingly at the time Jefferson (born April 13, 1743) was 32 years old.
Now as 32 is a number symbolic of the day this great country was founded and is the numerical value of the name America, and as it signifies the order of Jefferson’s and Adams’ death on a July 4th date, remarkably and amazingly the exact number of words comprising the Declaration of Independence (which the 3rd and 2nd Presidents wrote and defended) is 1322, with the number 32 at its center.
Moreover, as the number 32 by addition is reducible to the number 5 (3+2=5) incredibly Jefferson and Adams died approximately 5 hours apart, the one dying around 1 pm and the other at 6:20 pm. Also incredible is that 1 pm to 6:20 pm equals 320 minutes (32 10x). And just as uncanny is the fact Jefferson and Adams died on the 50th celebration of July 4th-50 being a multiple of 5 10x.
Now in keeping with this remarkable pattern of fives (and fives multiples and variations) the date July 4, 1776 fell on a Thursday, the 5th day of the week. Moreover, July 4, 1826, the day Jefferson and Adams died, was the 185th day of the year. Not does 185 end in 5 and is divisible by 5 but it’s a variant of the number 5 because it is reducible to 5, hence: 1+8+5=14, 1+4=5.
Furthermore, as mentioned above, Jefferson and Adams first met and became friends at the Second Continental Congress held in May 1775 when Jefferson was 32 years old. May is the 5th month of the year.
Also fascinating is that the only two future Presidents to sign the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams (they were two of the 5 key Founders*), were members of the Committee of FIVE that was appointed to draft the document. The other three members were Ben Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston.
*The other three were Washington, Franklin and Madison.
Moreover, the Declaration that Jefferson and Adams composed (the later playing a minor role) is made up of 5 distinct parts: the introduction, the preamble, the body, which can be divided into two sections, and the conclusion.
Other signs of what I believe is God’s supernatural presence and signature effect in the founding of our country, and in the astonishing deaths of Jefferson and Adams, are as follows:
Shortly before he expired a sick and ailing John Adams strangely uttered the mysterious words “Thomas Jefferson survives.” Could it be that Adams’ had a vision of Jefferson’s disembodied spirit and that it seemed so life like and real to him that he spoke these words believing he had seen him in the flesh? Whatever, these words are part of the mystery of Adams’ and Jefferson’s “coincidental” deaths in more ways than one. For in keeping with the significant numbers 3 and 2 Adams’ statement is composed of 23 letters (32 reversed) which exactly corresponds with the numeric value of Jefferson’s birth date, hence:
As Jefferson and Adam’s were the great pen and voice of the Revolution, the one writing the Declaration of Independence and the other defending it with his eloquence, concealed in the date July 4, 1776 is the all important year 1787 when the Constitution was completed and adopted by the 13 states and America became a Constitutional Republic, hence
1776 + 4 + 7 = 1787*
Remarkably, the numbers in the historic year 1787 collapse into the number 23, which is further reducible to 5 hence:
*There were exactly 74 delegates to the Constitutional Convention a number signifying the month (7) and day (4) of our founding.
It is also important to note that Jefferson and Adams were the 18th and 48th signers of the Declaration respectively. The multiplication of these two numbers gives us a total that’s a multiple of 32, hence:
18x48=864 or 32x27
THE JULY 4TH DEATH OF JAMES MONROE
James Monroe was the third and last President to die on July 4th . What is remarkable about this, and a sign that his death was Providentially arranged and designed like Jefferson’s and Adams’, is that while Adams and Jefferson were the 2nd and 3rd Presidents, numbers that total 5, Monroe himself was the 5th President-2 removed from Jefferson and 3 from Adams. Incredibly, the 5th President died in 1831, exactly 5 years to the date of Jefferson’s and Adams’ deaths on the 55th anniversary of Independence Day-55 is a multiple of 5 11x.
It is fascinating to note that Monroe the Jeffersonian (the student and lifelong friend of Jefferson) was succeeded to the presidency by John Quincy Adams, John Adams’ son. In other words, just as Thomas Jefferson succeeded John Adams to the presidency an Adams succeeded a Jeffersonian President*.
*Just as the addition of 2 (signifying John Adams’ presidency) and 3 (signifying Jefferson’s presidency) equals 5 (signifying Monroe’s presidency), so the multiplying of 2 and 3 equals 6 the presidency number of John Quincy Adams.
St. Augustine, following the ancient Greeks who believed that numbers (the basis of mathematics) rule the world, wrote that “Numbers are a universal language given to us by God for the confirmation of truth”-and, I might add, to justify His ways to us in this mathematically constructed, ordered and harmoniously designed universe. What was Divinely confirmed on July 4, 1826 with the near simultaneous deaths of Jefferson and Adams, and again on July 4, 1831 with the death of James Monroe, is that random, unplanned, chaotic chance had nothing to do with their deaths-nor was it the work of some impossible ingenious human conspiracy. Indeed, the July 4th deaths of these three Presidents confirm the existence of God giving evidence of His necessary being and mysterious and inscrutable governing of the universe and this nation. In other words, it is proof that Jefferson, Adams and Monroe died naturally under supernatural direction with an intelligent unifying principle coordinating their deaths as a sign that our country’s founding moment and Constitutional Republic were DIVINELY ORDAINED, as is our exceptionalism and glorious destiny as the greatest liberating force from tyranny in human history.
In celebration of God, Country and Liberty I wish you all a Happy 4th of July.
The 3rd President Thomas Jefferson was the first to die on July 4th. The 2nd President John Adams was the 2nd President to die on July 4th. The 5th President James Monroe was the 3rd and last President to die on July 4th. This produces the number 325. 325 is a multiple of 13 5x. 13 is the number of colonies turned independent states on July 4, 1776. Moreover, 325 is a factor in the number 17875 a 5 digit number encoded with the year 1787 when America became a Constitutional Republic-325 x 55 = 17875. Isn't it odd that it was on the 55th anniversary of July 4th that James Monroe died.
Thomas Jefferson, the first US President to die on July 4th, was President in 1808 when our nation celebrated its 32nd Independence Day. Amazingly, 7-4-1808 was the 7th year and 4th month (corresponding to July 4th) of Jefferson's two term presidency.

Mabye there’s something to this number 5. We’re a nation of 50 states, and our flag has 50 5 pointed stars. Just sayin.
And Hawaii, the last and 50th state to enter the Union, did so in the late 1950s.
Not only did Hawaii (the 50th state) join the Union in the late 1950s but it did so exactly 6555 weeks from July 4, 1776, hence:
July-4-1776 to August 21, 1959 (Hawaii joins the Union) is 183 years, 1 month and 17 days, that equates to 2197 months, or 66,886 days, or 9555 weeks (see).

The Supremely Wrong Court's 5 to 4 misruling (made by five male sexist Republican Catholic extremist judges on what will go down in history as MISOGYNIST MONDAY) to uphold the 1993 liberal Democrat Schumer/Kennedy Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) for conservative, racist, tea party owned (soon to be IRS targeted) Hobby Lobby, wasn't just a biblical blow to progressive contraceptive rights in America; it was a devastating 9/11 attack on womanhood-as bad as any cruel act of oppression that misogynist Moslems sadistically inflict on women.
Next to man-made global warming this contraceptive decision is now the biggest disaster facing the planet as one half of the human race (starting with an infinitesimal number of working American women) could suffer the indignity and anguish of actually paying for certain types of birth control. Indeed, what these justices fail to understand is that
ALL CONTRACEPTIVES ARE ONE AND INDIVISIBLE!
And that the violation of any woman's right to any one free contraceptive flouts her rights to all free contraceptives no matter what she gets free. Indeed, for a woman to buy contraceptives that should be hers cost free is a blow to her dignity as a human being diminishing her value and worth galactically; and as this ruling set back woman’s rights 100 years it must be reversed before it spreads worldwide and engulfs the planet. How can that be done? The answer is simple:
On Election Day voters must reinstate Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker, and keep Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader. That way the Democratic Congress can repeal RFRA-voted for by Pelosi, Reid and every Democrat but one). Once that's done and Obama signs it into law he then can order HHS to re-impose the contraceptive mandate in its full, comprehensive, pre-Misogynist Monday form-thus forcing reactionary corps like Hobby Lobby to eat their religious views and progressively provide abortion pills to their promiscuous female workers.
WOMEN OF AMERICA UNITE!
DON'T LET THIS CRISIS GO TO WASTE!
RESTORE YOUR CONTRACEPTIVE RIGHTS!
WARREN /CLINTON 2016 FOR UNLIMITED BIRTH CONTROL FREE STUFF !
An idealized painting of Mohammed. In reality he was anything but the compelling, stirring, charismatic apostle of Islamic legend and lore.
In an undelivered speech which he was to give back in September 2011 at a rally in Berlin an ill Robert Spencer wrote:
"Few people realize that the Sharia, Islamic law, forbids representational art and music. Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, said: “Allah Mighty and Majestic sent me as a guidance and mercy to believers and commanded me to do away with musical instruments, flutes, strings, crucifixes, and the affair of the pre-Islamic period of ignorance.” He also said that “on the Day of Resurrection, Allah will pour molten lead into the ears of whoever sits listening to a songstress.""
"Can you imagine," continues Spencer, "believing in a God who not only did not inspire great composers such as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Handel, and Mendelssohn, but who says that to listen to the works of such men is an act of “ignorance” for which one will be punished – indeed, tortured (see)?"
Now while Mohammed, as Spencer notes, was opposed to all representational art: drawings, paintings, statues, etc. his harshest words for artists were reserved for musicians and music. He did not say that painters and sculptors, and those who view their works, would have their eyes gouged out on Resurrection Day; but that musicians and singers and their audiences would be punished in the most cruel and sadistic way imaginable as if they were the evilest of sinners-worse than Jews.
But the question is why was Mohammed so violently opposed to music and musicians? Why did he single out music as the worst and most sinful of the arts? What was his problem with flutists, harpists and vocal artists? Why did he loath and fear them? Let me answer the question with a question: Is there anything in the Koran that can inspire and elevate the soul (one’s heart, mind and spirit) like a Beethoven's 9th or a Verdi opera? Was there anything that Mohammad said or wrote that was as thrilling or exalting? The answer is no. Read the Koran from cover to cover, do any of the prophet's words inspire such lofty feelings? If they do there wouldn't be a need for Sufism in Islam-which is a mystical escape from the worldly, carnal, materialistic, power crazed Mohammed and his spiritually vapid faith of routine, monotonous, spiritless rituals. Why then did Mohammed fear musicians and their music? Because musicians could stir the soul in ways that he and his supposed prophetic revelations could not. He was envious of them and their art because he offered nothing emotionally comparable, nothing so captivating, enthralling and sublime.
Think about it. Mohammed claimed to be God's last divine prophet of history with the supremely perfect message of salvation, the ultimate revelation of God's truth for the world. If true there could be nothing greater coming from the mind and pen of man. But after peacefully laboring for 13 years to save and conquer Mecca (one of Arabia's largest cities) what did Mohammed achieve? What did he have to show for all his effort and toil-his pleading, threatening, haranguing, struggles and tears? Not very much. Not nearly what he envisioned when he started his mission as he saw himself master of Mecca with all Meccans Moslem. Far from his inflated expectations when Mohammed left the city he had no more than 100 disciples-100 disciples out of a city of thousands after 13 years and of relentless preaching and dawa! That averaged out to a disappointing eight converts per year. For all his pretensions of being God’s last, most perfect and greatest prophet God wouldn’t work miracles for Mohammed to assist him in his work. No manna falling from heaven; no healing of the sick; no raising of the dead, no walking on water or turning it into nectar (wine was forbidden). Mecca had rejected his call, his message, his word, his claim to divine election, grace and ultimate prophethood. The city remained unredeemed, steeped in sin, a pagan metropolis worshipping a multitude of idols and false gods. In short, there was no Mohammed effect-the man was roundly ignored or ridiculed.
The above suggests that Mohammed was anything but the great, irresistible, charismatic personality portrayed in Islamic lore. This failure suggests that God's "divinely inspired messenger," greater than Jesus, Moses and Abraham combined, was anything but a great communicator-a soul stirring, spellbinding, mesmerizing speaker. There was nothing of the colossal apostle Paul in him. Nothing of the faith that moves mountains with the spirit-filled word. On the contrary, Mohammed's personality and words failed him, his cause and his God.
Qatadah reported that the Messenger of Allah said: 'Allah never sent a prophet who had a sweet voice.' Attested by Tirmizi*.
*Al Hadis, Book 2, Chap. 12, No. 25.
In this Hadith Mohammed was responding to criticism about his lack of skill and talent as a speaker-to his perhaps gruff, unpleasant, offensive sounding voice which turned most people off. Not only did the Meccans laugh at Mohammed's message and pretensions to prophethood but at his poor, unpersuasive speaking skills as well. Using more vinegar than honey (threatening damnation on unbelievers) Mohammed caught few flies in his web of fantasies and deceit. He was a boorish, uncouth eccentric with a handful of deluded followers-a David Koresh, a Jim Jones at worse; a gadfly and nuisance making noise at best, but no real threat to the Meccan establishment. In other words, Mohammed the unlettered, the unlearned, the illiterate, the man who couldn't read or write Arabic, the chosen, anointed, blessed one who emerged from the cave at Hira miraculously transformed into a bewitching, eloquent, awe-inspiring orator is a myth. If he had become such a man he might have conquered Mecca with the word and force of his character; or failing that he’d have at least left the city with 100 x 100 men. But up to that point there was nothing exceptional about him. Nothing to distinguish him from most men in Mecca except his Judeo-Christian belief in a single God. He was an incompetent, blundering visionary driven by illusions of grandeur and failed badly; and out of anger and desperation he turned to the one thing that would prove his salvation and that of Islam: THE SWORD. It was do or die for Mohammed. War (jihad) was his last resort, his one final hope which, as it turned out, he possessed considerable talent for. In short, the force of persuasion failed so Mohammed used the persuasion of force to turn around his fortunes and realize his dreams of wealth, women, power and renown.
Indeed, so that Islam wouldn't perish with his death the prophet became an unholy terror, a bloodthirsty warlord, a killing machine for God and Islam. The failed, ineffective, mediocre Meccan preacher would distinguish himself on the battlefield winning honor, fortune, power and glory by spilling oceans of blood. Then the savages around him would take notice and listen to him. Then he'd be taken seriously. Then they'd submit to Islam and be saved.
In sum Mohammed envied musicians and their art as deeply as he resented and feared them. They could do what he couldn't do: stir men to the depths of their being and enthrall them, and he hated them for it. The musicians and singers of Mecca were more compelling than his tedious, tiring, uninspiring message and he reserved the worst places in hell for them.
This I believe explains Mohammed's fear of musicians and hatred of music and song.
GOD THE GREAT MUSICIAN
Robert Fludd's Divine Monochord depicting the Music of the Spheres; a concept abhorrent to atheistic materialists (chance is their God) and the Prophet Mohammed (power was his God) as musicians for him of any kind were the sinful enemies of Islam. Are you listening Cat Stevens?
In the Western concept of God (going back to ancient Greece) the Creator was the Great Mathematician, the source of number and the mathematical sciences: arithmetic, geometry, astronomy and HARMONICS, the science of proportion and musical scales. The Pythagoreans discovered that the harmony of music is controlled by mathematical proportions which come from God, and that these proportions, ratios or musical intervals could be found throughout nature and the universe-even in the spiritual world where angels are said to eternally sing hymns to God.
Indeed, the idea of the Music of the Spheres is based on this mathematical world view; and that if outer space was filled with air the revolutions of the planets around the Sun would emit pleasing sounds that the ear could hear. This beautiful poetic intuition and theory was proved by Johannes Kepler who demonstrated it using the Five Platonic Solids and additional musical intervals. Said Kepler, "The heavenly motions... are nothing but a continuous song for several voices, perceived not by the ear but by the mind, a figured music which sets landmarks in the immeasurable flow of time." In other words, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are God's musical instruments playing a wonderful, continuous interplanetary symphony*. But the idea that the heavens were a vast musical harmony ("the morning stars sang," says the Bible) would have been abhorrent to the prophet of Islam; the man who hated music with a passion and worshipped an unmusical God of discord, wrath and military conquest-a God from hell.
Man who comes from God (THE GREAT MUSICIAN) and is fashioned in His intellectual image is a musical creature (like the singer/harpist King David) with a love for music and poetry (and all the fine arts) innate in his spiritual nature. Therefore, whoever condemns music and musical instruments on religious and moral grounds as evil, satanic, and forbidden by God (and who threaten musicians with torture and death in this life and the next) is a deluded ignoramus out of harmony with God and ignorant of His truth.
MOHAMMED ON MUSIC AND MUSICIANS

Then he said to me after we walked some distance: 'O Na'fe! do you hear anything?' I replied: 'No.' Then he took his fingers out of his ears and said: 'I was with the Messenger of Allah. He heard the sound of a flute and did what I have done.' Attested by Ahmed, Abu Daud.
Those Muslims who enjoy music, fine silk, drinking and sex—some of them Allah will destroy, some of them will be transformed into monkeys and pigs… (Sahih Bukhari, 7.69.494v)
REFUTING MOHAMMED'S CLAIM THAT THE PROPHETS LACKED ELOQUENCE
Mohammed said that he alone wasn't lacking in eloquence; that this gift was denied to all of the ancient Prophets-the implication being that ineloquence was the mark of true and holy Prophets. Bolderdash! Did Mohammed ever read the Bible, or have it read to him by man or God? Apparently not. Apart from Moses and his wounded tongue, where in the Bible does it say that Samuel, Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Jesus were poor, ineffective speakers like him? Read Jeremiah chapter 1 where the young Prophet said that God put His words in his mouth and turned him into a great and fearless speaker. Then read the Sermon On The Mount. What Mohammed said was a self-serving lie, putting his controversial speaking deficiencies in the best possible light-making it into a trait from the Most High. What a sham and charlatan he was.
Barack Obama should be scared, very scared as we all should be from his feckless, blundering, indecisive leadership, destructive domestic agenda and weaker than Bush’s counterterrorism measures. The great retreater from the Middle East and diminisher of American power (who is mindlessly at war with American Exceptionalism and the Pax Americana as the region descends into turmoil) is seeing the defeat of his weakly fought War on Terror as ISIS grows in power, wealth and renown filling the vacuüm he created in Iraq and threatening the homeland anew with mass murdering terror. Commanding a fortune in excess of $400 million stolen from Iraqi banks ISIS (the Islamic army of slaughter and death hell-bent on restoring the ancient Baghdad-centered Arab caliphate) makes core al Qaida at the height of its power (when it struck the Twin Towers) look miniscule.
It’s not that Obama wasn’t warned about the likely consequences of altering the successful counterterrorism policies of his predecessor. Five days before his ill-omened inaugural Providence paid tribute to George W. Bush and his valiant War on Terror with the incredible, miraculous safe landing of flight 1549 in the Hudson River where none of its 155 passengers and crew so much as suffered a scratch. Aboard the flight (which amazingly floated down river coming to rest near Ground Zero) was the brother of a first responder, a fire fighter who died on 9/11 which I wrote about HERE. But 28 days later (three weeks into the new administration) Obama received a terrible warning: Beverly Eckert, a 9/11 widow, died in a tragic plane crash killing 50 people just outside Buffalo, New York. Dying just six days after meeting with Obama at the White House Ms. Eckert’s death was a deadly sign that Obama’s War on Terror is badly flawed and can’t keep our nation safe like Bush and Cheney did for seven years. And lo and behold before 2009 ended, and as a likely prelude to worse, we had Ft Hood and 13 dead Americans (no fault of Obama's) and the Christmas Day Bomber who nearly blew up a plane with hundreds aboard.
But the death of Beverly Eckert was not the last sign of coming woe if Obama stays his dangerous course of weakness and retreat. 99 weeks later in Tuscon, Arizona (close to our porous southern borders) deranged gunman Jarrod Laughner shot and killed six people at a Safeway parking lot where Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (shot in the head but survived) was holding a constituent meeting. But what, in my view, turned this shooting into a powerful warning sign of coming domestic mass terror if Obama doesn’t alter his policies was that the shooter, born 9/10/1988, killed nine year old Christina Taylor Green who was ominously born on 9/11/2001..the day al Qaida turned lower Manhattan into a holocaust. It was a sign of a politically correct, ideologically blind 9/10-minded president dangerously operating in a post-9/11 world that has since seen al-Qaida kill four Americans in Benghazi on the 11th anniversary of 9/11; saw 4 Americans killed and hundreds injured in the al-Qaida inspired Boston Marathon Bombing; and is seeing a Middle East ablaze with jihad and death as ISIS slashes, murders and burns its away across Iraq to the cheers of millions..as its leaders threaten the US with 9/11 devastation.
Yet despite all this, despite the Hudson River Miracle, the death of Beverly Eckart, the al-Qaida inspired Ft. Hood shooting, Benghazi, Tuscon and the Boston bombing Barack Obama is doubling down on his dangerous 9/10 policeman approach to fighting Islamic terror. For within the space of just 18 days our weak-on-terror president released from Gitmo five deadly Taliban killers in a trade for a worthless anti-American army deserter; and arrested as a common criminal the mirandized Ahmed Abu Khattala, an al-Qaida commander suspected of complicity in the 9/11 Benghazi attack-a murderous enemy combatant at war with our country who should be in Gitmo. Astonishingly, Khattala could have been captured a year ago; but Obama and Holder wanted to build a case against him risking the lives of Americans as he could have killed in the meantime. It boggles the mind.
Indeed, people take very, very seriously Dick Cheney’s dire warning that the stuck on stupid “fool” in the White House is setting the stage for another massive terror attack and leading our country into a period of national chaos and tribulation.
We are a rudderless nation
Without purpose and aim
Adrift on a sea of growing crises.

Tuesday night on The Factor Bill O'Reilly commenting on the unsurprising, anticipated-by-many, prayed-for-by-Rush, failure and collapse of Barack Obama's incompetent, radical left, Worse-Than-Watergate presidency likened his second term to that of Civil War hero Ulysses S. Grant's whose Republican administration, as O'Reilly said, "fell apart" because (like Obama) he was disengaged or "missing in action" and "didn't pay attention" to all the corruption going on under his nose (see).
This wasn't the first time O'Reilly made this comparison, and he's not the only one to do so (see). But all the same , the Obama/Grant comparison didn't surprise me as I had discovered many signs and portents before, during, and shortly after the 2012 presidential race auguring that Obama's second term would be the most disastrous and scandal plagued since Ulysses S. Grant's. Indeed, apart from the unmistakable signs of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's arrest 35 days after Obama's election (for trying to sell his senate seat), and the death of George McGovern (target of the Watergate break in) between Obama's reelection and the Benghazi coverup and protection scandal, the following omens related to Grant prefigured Obama's corrupt, mendacious, inept, Chicagoland administration that seems to worsen by the day as it heads towards complete ignominy.
For when Obama was elected president on the historic night of November 4, 2008 he delivered his victory speech to a delirious crowd of 250,000 which ominously started not on the 4th but just past midnight (12:02 am) on November 5th (see and see). What was ominous and seemingly providential about the speech's timing was that November 5th was the 136th anniversary of President Grant's reelection in 1872....as if signifying that Obama's second term (if he should have one) would in essence be as bad as, if not worse than, Grant's .
But that the speech delivered on the 5th instead of the 4th was not mere happenstance but a meaningful coincidence with Grant's reelection anniversary pointing to a hugely corrupt Democrat administration is suggested by the ominous place where it was given. For the speech that night was delivered at none other than Chicago's GRANT PARK named after the victorious Civil War general who (like Obama) was a miserable failure as president. Moreover, Grant like Obama was a citizen of Illinois; and when Grant in 1868 won the GOP presidential nomination the Republican National Convention was held in the city of CHICAGO- today the most politically corrupt city in the nation and Obama's hometown (see).
Amazingly, as Obama delivered his 2008 victory speech on November 5th at Grant Park (on the 136th anniversary of Grant's reelection) the number of days separating his date of birth from his reelection victory on November 6, 2012 gives us a five digit number strangely encoded with the year of Grant's reelection, hence:
August 4, 1961 (Obama's birth) to November 6, 2012 is 51 years, 3 months and 2 days, or exactly 18722 days- whose first four digits gives us the year 1872 when Grant was unluckily elected to a 2nd term (see).
THE DEATH OF MADELYN DUNHAM
But the signs related to Grant get worse. On November 3rd (in the continental US)* approximately one day before his election in 2008 Obama received tragic news from Hawaii that his 86 year old maternal grandmother Madelyn Dunham died from ovarian cancer that she'd been battling for years. The news of her death stunned the nation with some Obama supporters losing heart fearing it was a portent of coming defeat. But Dunham's death meant no such thing; instead, what now seemed to be hidden at the time was that November 3, 2008 was an omen related to Ulysses S. Grant. For the date of Durham's death fell on the 140th anniversary of Grant's election in 1868.
* Dunham passed away on November 2nd between the hours of 11 pm and 12 am Hawaiin time which was November 3rd everywhere else in the US (see).
Indeed, that Dunham should live a long life of 86 years (more than 31,000 days), spanning the 47 years of her grandson's existence where she saw him rise from obscurity to political prominence and within inches of seizing the presidency, but didn't stay alive just one day more to experience the joy and blessing of her grandson's historic victory (which would've made her the proudest grandmother on earth) seems like a cruel act of fate.
But as Madelyn Dunham died on the anniversary of Grant's presidential election it now seems more like a providential sign that her grandson's presidency would be anything but a joy and blessing to the nation; and that like Grant he'd fail and fail badly disgracing himself and dishonoring his office by presiding over a cesspool of corruption, coverups, broken promises and lies-and would leave office, like the unfortunate Grant, with the nation in far worse shape than on the day he won election.
GRANT'S GREAT DEPRESSION
Indeed, the epically failed, scandal-ridden presidency of Ulysses S. Grant is overshadowing the Obama White House as it turns into a hell-house losing its moral authority and credibilty with a disillusioned public pesssimistic about the future; and as we are a nation in steep decline with a contracting economy verging on a double dip recession (due mostly to Obama's demoralizing leadership, government supremacism, war on free enterprise, and regressive taxation, debt, and regulatory policies) it is chilling to note that the US economy in Grant's second term collapsed into a long, gueling five year depression triggered by a financial crisis (see).
FROM THE NEW LINCOLN TO THE NEW GRANT
It is incedibily ironic that the man who started his bid for the presidency in Springfield, Illinois, where Lincoln gave his House Divided speech, and took his oath of office on Lincoln's Bible is morphing into Lincoln's victorius general who gave this country the worst two term presidency in its history.

In my piece of several weeks ago Why Islam Wants To Destroy Israel I wrote about the underlying theological causes of Islam's genocidal war against the Jewish State which started with its birth 66 years ago and continues unabated today; and that nothing short of Israel's conversion to Islam or complete annihilation would end the conflict and appease them. In this piece, The Underlying Causes of the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict (originally published on Townhall in June 2010) I deal specifically with the 50 year jihad of the so-called made up, invented Palestinian people... the vanguard of the Arab/Islamic cause to destroy the state of Israel and replace it with an oppressive Islamic-Arab terrorist state that would have nothing of value or worth to offer mankind.
Arab Moslem savages relentlessly bash and demonize Israel and call for its destruction as part of the solution to their crisis of faith, their 600 years of decay and self-caused catastrophes.
Multiculturalists and politically correct Leftist appeasers blame Israel for perpetuating its 62 year conflict with the Palestinians and Arabs by refusing to return to the negotiating table and give peace talks another chance. But after the catastrophe of Yassir Arafat, Oslo and the Second Intifada most Israelis are disillusioned with negotiations and have given up on peace. After withdrawing from Southern Lebanon and Gaza, thousands of rocket attacks and fighting two wars they've learned their lesson and simply want to disengage from the Palestinians leaving them to wallow in their racist hatred, ignorance, poverty and sin hoping that time and suffering will heal them. Their reasoning runs something like this:
'How can you make peace with a people who believe that all your lands-Haifa, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, etc., belong to them by divine right? That the Koran is their deed to your lands? And that God who signed this deed demands that you surrender or face endless war until your crushed and defeated? How do you reason with such a people and make peace with them?'
Indeed, driving this murderous conflict from the start is Arab racism, cultural imperialism and religious intolerance. Islamic supremicism explains 70% of the conflict, and Arab racial superiority the remaining 30%. West Bank settlements, East Jerusalem, blockades, checkpoints, etc. count for naught. Most Palestinians believe in an Islamic Peace, that a one state solution with Israel conquered by Islam is the only answer to ending the conflict.
Israel's existence as a non-Moslem (Jewish) state on the Arabian Peninsula, where Mohammed supposedly received the Koran from God (Allah's plan for regional and world dominion) is a blow to and refutation of Islamic truth and supremicism, and Arab racial superiority. Indeed, Jewish Israel's existence-unlawful by Islamic law-is both religiously and racially humiliating to their Palestinian and Arab neighbors; it's intolerably offensive and wounding to their cultural pride, history and spiritual sensibilities. Israel's existence is a challenge to a 1300 year old belief system of medieval tyranny, injustice, bigotry and barbarism; a challenge that enrages most Arabs and drives them insane with painful and disturbing doubts about the totality of their faith: their traditions, values, ideals, identity, heritage and world view; doubts about restoring their once great and mighty empire of oppression, cruelty and fear; doubts about their "providential" mission to subdue and conquer the world for God and Islam. In short, the premise that “ISLAM IS THE ABSOLUTE ANSWER TO MANKIND’S MANIFOLD ILLS” is refuted by Israel’s existence-which is why it's so hated and vilified.
Indeed, Arab-Moslems struggle against the terror of doubt and uncertainty caused by Israel, America, the West and modernity; they refuse to question, examine and test their beliefs; they refuse to mature, come of age and join the civilized world. Desiring the peace of mind that certainty brings they cling to their outworn absolutism and false moral clarity: their black and white division of the world into realms of war and peace, infidels and believers, the unclean and righteous, the saved and damned. They want to believe that they and they alone are God's chosen people and gift to humanity possessing the key to universal salvation-the one final truth and answer to everything. They want to believe these things strongly and believe them in peace, but can’t as long as the Jewish state of Israel exists.
Indeed, when true believing Moslems see a thriving, prosperous, modern democratic people in their midst-a non-Moslem mostly non-Arab state-certainty is shaken and dread sets in: the dread of losing their illusions; the dread they might be wrong; the dread of shattered hopes and dreams, that Islam and the Arab race are not supreme with no sublime purpose, fate, destiny or meaning.
In short, Israel's restoration after 2000 years (foretold by Biblical and non-Biblical prophecies), and continued existence against all odds, has caused a catastrophe in the Middle East: a terrifying cataclysm and crisis of faith in God, Mohammed and Islamic truth; a crisis in the belief that Islam perfects Judaism, Christianity, philosophy and science, that its laws abrogate all constitutions and is the fate of the earth as promised by God. Israel's destruction is an Islamic necessity and to that end its Arab enemies-Hamas, Hezbollah, Fatah, the Moslem Brothers, al-Qaida, the Saudis and Wahabis (joined by the Persians and Turks)-work relentlessly and feverishly. If Israel were to be destroyed the victory would be celebrated as a sign from heaven that the prophet was right, that Islam is the answer; and that with Israel's demise Europe and America would be next to fall, and the entire world thereafter as promised by Mohammed in the Koran and Hadith when he has God saying (in numerous places): the world and everything in it will be yours.
The experiment of land for peace with Palestinians has been tried and failed over and over and over again. Its failure proves the point that the conflict is essentially driven by ideology and irreconcilable world views. A peace loving modern liberal democracy and a predatory medieval Moslem terror state have nothing in common and are natural enemies. Like the 19th century Italian nationalist Joseph Mazzini said: "Ideas rule the world they divide mankind and keep it in a state of conflict and war." Ideas about God and government. Good and evil. Human nature and mankind's destiny. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is a microcosm of a larger civilizational struggle between Islam and the West that will grow more violent and bloody in time especially in Europe where jihadists are hell-bent on destroying democracy and being in charge. Those who at this late date after 66 years still think that the Arab-Israeli conflict is about land and not ideas and ideals are in extreme denial and have their heads in the sand. And such is the Obama administration ,most leftists and Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Indeed, in the wake of 9/11 the rising tide of Saddamophobia swelled into a tsunami that swept away George Bush’s inhibitions and fears about invading Iraq and bringing down Saddam; gone were the father’s wise restraints and Dick Cheney’s insights into sectarian chaos as we swept into Iraq 555 days later ending the dictator's terrible 23 year reign and turning him into a hunted fugitive.
9/11 + GEORGE BUSH + SADDAM'S INTRANSIGENCE, LIES AND STRATEGIC BLUNDERS = OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM
Remove any factor from the equation and Saddam (or his sons) would still be in power oppressing their people, menacing the region and funding terrorism aimed at hurting US and Western interests-and perhaps armed with nuclear bombs.
Saddam Hussein was so enamored with his cruel, sadistic, mass murdering idol Joseph Stalin that he imitated his ways and actions, and did everything he could to look like him. But Stalin, unlike Saddam, survived as his country's leader till his death. Saddam died a Stalin wannabe. But it could have been different if he survived.
After 9/11 Bush and Cheney came to the conclusion, and the right one I believe, that the possible costs and chaos of a post-Saddam Iraq-of murderous tribal, ethnic and religious strife-was less to be feared than the possible horrific domestic consequences of the America-hating dictator staying in power with his WMDs, nuclear ambitions, funding of terrorism and grandiose dreams of becoming the master and Joseph Stalin of the Middle East. Bush, Cheney and many Democrats from the Clintons to Joe Biden understanding the danger (and with huge public support) refused any longer to take a chance on Saddam. Practically everyone feared another horrific 9/11 and so we preëmptively struck.
Saddam, who like most Arabs rejoiced over 9/11 admiring bin Laden and al Qaida for the deed and great death and destruction it caused, would fall. We'd take the War on Terror to the enemy in the heart of the Middle East however troubling and destabilizing it could be (in the short term) to the region. The sick, dysfunctional, despotic Middle East, the incubator of Islamic terror and 9/11, would be forever changed and transformed-blown up if need be-and made less dangerous to America's security, freedom and well-being.
True to his unbending nature the tragic, stiff-necked Saddam was defiant to the end. Thumbing his nose at the 16th and final UN Resolution warning him that failure to comply with the terms of his ceasefire agreement, and come clean on his missing stockpile of WMDs, would have dire consequences, Saddam instead issued a bogus 12,000 page document claiming they were destroyed. That was the last straw. For 12 years Saddam had been violating his ceasefire agreement triumphing over every punishment, and now it was time to enforce its terms and resume the state of war. President Bush made the tough decision to finish Desert Storm, the war his father began, and Saddam this time would fall.
Driven from power Saddam went on the run trying and failing to organize a guerrilla war against the invading infidels (the new Christian Crusaders) who he’d heroically defeat (fulfilling his destiny) as the Sunni world rallied to his cause. But that was another grand delusion. In the end Saddam was abandoned by everyone weak, pathetic, alone looking like a filthy bum crawling out of a stinking spider hole as he ignominiously surrendered to US forces.
Now ten years after that day Iraq is on the verge of a cataclysmic civil war due mainly to the incompetent leadership of a feckless Leftist US President ironically bearing the middle name HUSSEIN, who rose to power because he opposed the war that brought down Saddam justly ending his evil, mad, monstrous reign.
Barack Hussein Obama, America’s first president with Moslem family roots, has been a catastrophe for the Middle East and Moslem world. Through butt kissing appeasement, cowardice, inaction, retreat and bad calls he's made things radically worse in the region by intentionally trying to kill the Pax Americana caring nothing about the consequences and what will replace it... leaving everything to chance. Will it be a nuclear armed Iran achieving regional hegemony and control of Mideast oil? Or will it be ISIS the mightiest al Qaida army of all ravaging Iraq like a swarm of locusts becoming the Sunnis' last best hope to keep the region free of a Pax Iranica? We shall see.
THE MADNESS OF SADDAM
With the bruising experience of the Gulf War behind him, where he was forced out of Kuwait by US-led coalition forces at a staggering loss of 30,000 men and billions in treasure, how do we explain Saddam Hussein’s intransigence and brinkmanship in the face of an impending US/UK invasion where he was about to lose everything? With 250,000 troops amassed on his southern border and no chance of military success what could have been going through Saddam's crazy Arab head that he took things to the brink then recklessly plunged himself, his sons and his Stalinist regime into the abyss of defeat and death? Before Operation Iraqi Freedom ended Saddam's 23 year reign three things I believe were at work in his head: 1) the delusional belief in his historical destiny as the savior and unifier of the Arab World, 2) the divided ethnic, tribal and religious composition of Iraq (which he forcibly kept together) and 3) the threat of Islamic-Shiite Iran which aspires to regional hegemony.
In the early days after 9/11 when the United States was fighting in Afghanistan and threatening to invade Iraq the Baathist dictator bet his power, fortune, family and life that George W. Bush was bluffing; that in reality he was no different from his father and predecessor (Bill Clinton); that though he was threatening regime change by invasion like them he’d try to overthrow him from within (through insurrection or assassination). Saddam, in effect, was cocksure that Bush had the good sense not to invade Iraq because of the possible catastrophic consequences: the unleashing of sectarian, tribal and ethnic strife destabilizing the region and empowering Iran.
Indeed, with Dick Cheney as Bush’s VP an invasion was inconceivable to Saddam...however tough the Vice President was talking of war and regime change at the time. For this was the same Dick Cheney who repeatedly defended Bush 41’s decision against invasion during the Gulf War, who studied and understood the sectarian and other differences dividing Iraq, and who told David Brinkley that “an invasion could trigger a civil war that would bog down our troops in a quagmire [like Vietnam].” Indeed, this was the same Dick Cheney who said on C-Span in 1994 that “the 146 troops killed in the Gulf War was an enormous loss,” and that the overthrow of Saddam “wouldn’t even be worth that many causalities” because of the “turmoil it could bring to the region with Iraq breaking apart.” In short, Cheney was a realist when it came to Iraq and fully understood the possible devastating consequences of an invasion and that Saddam remaining in power was the best of many bad options. In other words, with Cheney at Bush’s side and warnings from his dad on the hazards of such an undertaking George Bush would do nothing more serious than stage a second Desert Fox: attack Iraq with punishing missile strikes at military targets, suspected WMD sites and palaces which Saddam would easily survive.
KING OF ALL ARABIA
In other words, Iraq’s inherent cultural conflicts and the regional threat of Iran protected Saddam from such a thing, he believed. It was a double guarantee against invasion. Surety that he would continue to rule and live to realize his destiny and grandiose dream of becoming "King of all Arabia" with a dynasty of terror (the House of Hussein) lasting generations. What American president would be so foolish as to destroy the region’s only buffer to Iranian power and ambitions? Among the three Axis of Evil States (as the Israelis said at the time) revolutionary Iran was by far the greater threat to U.S. interests in the region, by far a greater threat to the Persian Gulf and moderate Arab oil states. With Iraq’s large Shia population potential allies of Iran no American president would dare cross the line, invade Iraq and liberating its Shiites tip the scales of power in the region enabling and empowering Iran. No American president would so recklessly destabilize the status quo and reverse 1000 years of Mideast politics. No one, that is, except George W. Bush.
Saddam didn’t change after 9/11 but perceptions of him did; magnified a thousand times by 3000 deaths and billions in damage Saddam began to look more menacing than ever taking on the dimensions of the man he worshipped, emulated and copied, the idol of his intoxicating dreams: the mass murdering Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. Suddenly Saddam became larger than life and more frightening than ever not only in Bush's mind but in the public imagination. After 9/11 Saddam became a collective obsession of a coming terrorist nightmare worse than 9/11. Afterall, wasn’t this the man who recklessly invaded two neighboring states, used chemical weapons on Iranians and Kurds, and gave safe haven to Ramsi Yoeseff the Iraqi terrorist who masterminded the first bombing of the World Trade Center? Wasn’t this the man branded by Bill Clinton as a major funding source of international terror? and was accused by Janet Reno of assisting bin Laden and al Qaida in chemical weapon’s development? Wasn’t this the man who submitted an inventory list to the UN claiming to have stockpiles of WMDs, enough to kill multitudes? And didn't he keep his hundreds of nuclear scientists and technicians on the government payroll (while in possession of 550 metric tons of yellow cake uranium (see) raising reasonable fears that they were secretly at work building the bomb? Why would he keep these people and pay them millions if going nuclear wasn't his goal?
THE MOST FEARED MAN ON EARTH
In short, Saddamophobia existed well before 9/11 and was understandably amplified thereafter not so much by the Administration and its many real and fanciful fears as by Saddam’s continued headstrong defiance of the US and international law-in contrast to Iran which became more accommodating and compliant fearing US wrath because of its links to several 9/11 terrorists (see). The President, Cheney, Rice, Powell, the entire Administration and nation with few dissenting voices, became alarmed and wanted action demanding Saddam’s menacing head before he could develop the capability of striking us with chemical, biological or nuclear weapons. Before the storm clouds gathered and reigned down death he must be stopped; 9/11 must be the last mass murder attack on US soil-Bush, Cheney and the rest were hell-bent on making sure that they'd be no other.
SADDAM MORE DANGEROUS THAN BIN LADEN
Indeed, what was the fugitive, stateless, relatively impotent Osama bin Ladin compared to the Butcher of Baghdad, the dictator of an oil rich nation of 25 million the size of Texas, with billions at his disposal, tons of WMDs, uranium and the expertise to develop the bomb? What, in truth, was al Qaida compared to the most powerful army in the Arab World? Who seemed the greater threat after we invaded Afghanistan and wrecked havoc on al Qaida and the Taliban? Though a secularist who put his racial identity above his faith, and his destiny above both, Saddam was bin Ladin tenfold…a bin Ladin with billions and a global reach far exceeding the powers of the hunted impotent terror master. Bin Ladin was one man hidden away in a vast region running from cave to cave difficult to find-the head of an organization that was being defunded, broken and smashed. But Saddam, on the other hand, was moving from palace to palace openly defying everyone and pissing off a fearful George Bush over his continued, headstrong non-compliance on WMDs, retention of nuclear scientists and funding of terror. Where was the comparison with the cave dwelling, on the run bin Laden? In the public mind there was none. Though Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11 he was a different face of the same menacing Middle East enemy at war with America and the West; all of our insecurities, animosities and fears crystallized by 9/11 settled on Saddam turning him into the Avatar of Arab Evil planning to strike.
To be continued.
BARACK OBAMA COMPLETED OUR PREMATURE AND DESTABILIZING RETREAT FROM IRAQ
on December 18, 2011: the first anniversary of the Arab Spring upheaval which began with a street vendor in Tunisia lethally setting himself on fire in protest of authorities confiscating his fruit stand for lacking a license (see). What began there on that historic day has turned unto a deadly sectarian conflagration ironically foreshadowed on October 10, 2002 when a bipartisan Congress passed at George Bush's behest the Iraq War Resolution authorizing him to use military force to topple the menacing Saddam Hussein for his violations on WMDs, human rights, terrorism and other issues (see). Amazingly, and perhaps Providentially, October 10, 2002 was the 1322nd anniversary of the Battle of Karbala in what is present day Iraq; this was the first military confrontation between Sunnis and Shia over the rightful succession from the prophet Mohammed. Killed in that battle was HUSSEIN ibn Ali, Mohammed's grandson (see). Just as amazing, and what looks like a meaningful coincidence, is that the Iraq War Resolution was numbered HJR 114, a number of great importance in Islam as it denotes the exact number of books that comprise the Koran.
But, in my opinion, the real beginning of the calamitous Arab Spring was Operation Iraqi Freedom which replaced a brutal Arab-Stalinist dictatorship with a limited, illiberal Islamic democracy-the inspirational model for the region. Following the establishment of democracy in Iraq was the democratic election of Hamas in Gaza, then the failed Green Revolution in Iran (most Iranians want an Iraqi type democracy) leading to the regionwide upheaval of the Arab Spring in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Syria and elsewhere. George Bush's vision of a democratized Middle East beginning with Iraq is occuring catastrophically through hell-the only way possible for that sick, dysfunctional, tragic, backwards region.
Pam Geller predicts here "a bloody worldwide war" arising from this mess-a prediction which isn't farfetched as Iran (backed by Russia, China, North Korea, Venezuela and others) contemplates seizing control of Iraq's southern oil fields in Basra (to protect it from ISIS, of course). This could bring the world to war if the Sunni gulf oil states fearing a Russia-China backed Shiite invasion from Iraq are hell-bent on stopping them with US and Western support-then the entire region will go inferno.
The Iranian mullahs are power-mad imperial restorationists dreaming of rebuilding the ancient Persian Empire Islamically; and fortunately for them the world's most powerful man, Barack Hussein Obama (elected president 11-4-08...the 29th anniversary of the Iran Hostage Crisis) is foolishly helping them. I said it before and will do so again: Barack Obama (fortune's hapless fool and with the ominous and tragic middle name "Hussein" as in Saddam*) is Jimmy Carter plus George Bush squared when it comes to enabling Iran in the dangerous and destabilizing expansion of its power...and as it builds the bomb.
*Isn't it remarkable that Barack Obama with the significant middle name HUSSEIN literally rode the back of the anti-Iraq War movement to the White House? If Saddam HUSSEIN had not been deposed he wouldn't be president-and now Iraq is doing considerable damage to his ill-starred presidency.
I will be writing extensively on this subject in the days and weeks ahead drawing on my writings from Townhall where many of my predictions about the Middle East are coming to pass.

Hillary Clinton: 'With all due respect to Mr. Krauthammer I can name at least two achievements: restoring America's leadership in the world, and RUSSIAN RESET-until Putin ruined it.
Medvedev and Putin: puppet and puppet master.
Hillary Clinton was there (with husband Bill) at the start of Barack Obama's transformational revolution on domestic and foreign policy backing him to the hilt on everything from the failed $860 million fiscal stimulus (which has prolonged the economic distress of most Americans), to the unpopular, ruinous, socialist government takeover of the health insurance industry (the greatest public policy hoax in US history), to his grand appeasement policies with Russia and the Islamic world ("Reset" and "Moslem Outreach" leading to the Crimean, Libyan, Egyptian, Syrian and Iraq debacles in strife-torn Ukraine and the cauldronized Middle East); and yet despite her blind, unquestioning backing of Obama's destructive policies (Bill Clinton extolled them all at the DNC) Hillary Clinton laughably boasts that her most important and foremost achievement (the one she deserves the most credit and respect for from the public and future historians) is "restoring America's image and leadership in the world"- restoring it from what it was when this country under George Bush was "flat on its back." But Hillary is a flat-out liar contradicted by the facts.
Forgetting for a moment that under Barack Obama's feckless leadership most world leaders neither respect, fear, nor trust the US, and that domestically the overwhelming majority of America's veterans rightly give George Bush higher marks for leadership than Obama by 13 points (see), and that Americans generally see Bush as the more effective and competent leader by a 6 point spread (see), let's look at one area of US foreign policy where Obama's and Clinton's leadership have miserably failed despite warning signs and common sense not to go there: US/Russian Reset.
Hillary in a recent NPR interview claimed that Russian Reset was a terrific success moving US/Russian relations forward toward reconciliation until Vlad the Bad Putin returned as Russia's president-putting the blame for its failure on him ."Once Putin decided to take back the presidency and that Medvedev was out, because he [Medvedev] was who we dealt with during that period, things began to change [for the worse]" said Hillary (see).
Oh really now? How could Hillary credibly say that Medvedev was so great for rebuilding US/Russian relations when it was he who was president when Russia invaded Georgia and those relations collapsed? Was that Putin's fault too? Absolutely! In their condemnation of the invasion not one Western leader including Bush so much as mentioned Medeved because it was Putin (then prime minister) who ordered it from behind the scenes as he was the real power in Russia-Medvedev being his puppet.
Indeed, when in early May 2012 Putin resumed the presidency the only thing that changed was the guise of Russian leadership, not the reality. Russia's constitution limits its presidents to two consecutive four-year terms-and then at least a four-year hiatus before they can run for president again. This is what Putin did. When Medvedev's four-year term was up he called it quits and didn't run for reelection knowing that betraying Putin would mean his death.
Indeed, the so-called "reset achievements" of the Medvedev years ("so-called" because US/Russian relations were never reset) cited by Clinton: "an arms reduction treaty, Russian help to slow Iranian progress toward nuclear weapons, and the agreement to let Americans transport war materiel needed by US troops in Afghanistan across Russian territory" were all subject to Putin's approval before Medvedev was allowed to sign on to them. Indeed, It is certain that if Putin had continued without interruption as Russia's president Hillary would have had the same so-called "reset achievements" she's now touting as a great success until Putin ruined it.
In fact, what was completely and conveniently ignored in Hillary's softball interview is that these minor, unnoteworthy achievements were concessions made by Putin after the US paid the steep price of placating him by canceling the anti-missile defense system for Poland and Eastern Europe (replacing it with an inferior system less threatening to Russia). It was a gift to Putin plain and simple offered by a timid, confused, weakling of a president who wouldn't stop him when it was time for Georgia redux in the Ukraine .
Ominously the cancellation was announced on September 17, 2009: the 70th anniversary of Stalin's invasion of Poland. In retrospect that coincidence wasn't an accident but a warning from providence of the likely consequences of trying to appease Putin who was born toward the end of Stalin's monstrous reign and made from the same cold steel with the same imperialist hunger for territory and power.
Truth is Obama and Clinton learned nothing from Putin's invasion of Georgia. This leopard couldn't change his spots if he were boiled in bleach. Deluding themselves (like Chamberlain did with Hitler) that Putin could be placated (or that he had learned his lesson from the economic costs of invading Georgia) they imagined they could succeed where Bush had failed and turn Putin into a strategic partner who'd fully coöperate with them in ending Iran's nuclear weapons program.
It was a dangerous delusion and gambol from the start. For (as I said before) on the day that Joe Biden first announced to the world that resetting relations with Russia would receive the highest priority with the new administration he was at a security conference in Munich 70 years after Chamberlain (in that very city) made the fatal mistake of trying to appease Hitler. Then, as I've noted before, coming three days after Munich was a startling sign in the heavens with the unprecedented, catastrophic collision of a US and Russian satellite over frozen Siberia in the dead of night-prefiguring the coming clash on earth. Oddly that clash over Russia's war on the Ukraine has extended into space with Putin banning America access to his country's space station, and baring Russian rockets from launching US military satellites, in retaliation for punitive sanctions (see). Amazing, isn't it?
From here on things can only deteriorate further leading perhaps to the worst days of the Cold War when America went to Defcon 2 over the Cuban Missile Crisis... as the world feared nuclear war. If Hillary runs for president she will not escape the truth on just how terribly inept and lacking in accomplishments she was as Obama's failed secretary of state. Eight years of Barack Obama is eight years too long. This nation can ill afford even one year more with Hillary Clinton.

It was as though the earth split open last week and swallowed up House Majority leader Eric Cantor's political career when he went down in unexpected defeat to tea party challenger David Brat..who described his historic victory in religious terms as "a miracle from God." And maybe it was. Maybe God's good Providence had a hand in Brat's shocking victory. Maybe this political earthquake with its seismic consequences that is shaking Washington was a Providential event marking a turnaround for Conservatism in the 64th and worst month of Barack Obama's God awful, collapsing, ill-starred presidency.
Now if David Brat's intuition about the Divine origin of his victory is right and that it heralds great political changes to come as many pundits predict, then there should have been unusual signs (signature effects of God) accompanying the event; and it appears that there were. Consider the following and draw your own conclusions:
For anticipating last Tuesday's shocking defeat of a Washington establishment big wig was a real earthquake, a geological event, that left Washington shaken and shut down the Washington Monument for the first time in its 126 year history* . Indeed, 7 months into his role as House Majority Leader (beginning January 3, 2011), and in the 7th month of his 10th year in Congress (beginning January 3, 2001), Eric Cantor (who was elected by Virginia's 7th District on November 7, 2000) was in Israel when a 5.8 magnitude earthquake, THAT ORIGINATED IN HIS DISTRICT, shook Virginia and the DC area causing extensive damage to the Washington Monument...cracking it throughout (see).
*It's construction was completed on February 21, 1885. 126 is a multiple of 7 18x.
Moreover, from the start of his career in the House on January 3, 2001 to his defeat last week Eric Cantor was exactly the 700th week of his 7th term as Congressman; and the issue which cost him his seat was AMNESTY for 11 million illegal aliens, a (dirty) 7 letter word.
Perhaps this pattern of septenaries (7s) was merely haphazard and accidental; or maybe it was a sign that God had intervened and worked a political miracle for David Brat (age 49, 7x7) through the electorate as he believes; a sign that Conservatism is on the rebound and will once again dominate American politics as it did in the 1980s with the election of Ronald Reagan. Did I say Ronald Reagan? Well it just so happens, my friends, that this Election Day November 4th is the 34th anniversary of Reagan's earthshaking election. (34 is a variant of the number 7, 3+4 = 7). Moreover, the 34th US President, Republican Dwight Eisenhower (like Reagan 28 years later) won the presidency on a November 4th election date defeating Adlai Stevenson, a Democrat politician from Illinois. Moreover, separating Cantor's stunning loss on June 10th and Election Day November 4th is exactly 147 days: 147, the 7th number of the 140 series, is divisible by 7 21x. Is this too a sign?
If last Tuesday's shocking victory of David Brat was auspicious for Conservatives for this coming fall then what about the general election in 2016? Was this local event a national portent? Let's do some calculating and see:
June 10, 2014 (Brat's victory) to November 8, 2016 (Election Day) is 2 years, 4 months and 29 days. This equals 28 months (7 x 4) or 126 weeks (7 x 18) or 882 days ( 7 x 126). I'm not going to go out on a limb and predict victory for Conservatism in 2016; but in light of Eric Cantor's historic defeat, emblematic of shaking the Washington establishment which is badly in need of reform (like repairing the cracked Washington Monument), 2016 is looking mighty auspicious for the cause. But if the GOP (in my opinion) is to capture the presidency it can only do so with a candidate like David Brat-a Washington outsider-and someone who is Reaganesque.
JEB BUSH AND THE END OF THE BUSH PRESIDENTIAL DYNASTY?
As I said above, Eric Cantor was elected to the House on November 7, 2000, the very day George Bush won the presidency. Like Cantor 7 is a significant number in George Bush's life. For example Bush was born on the 7th month of July, on the 7th day of the week, in the 7th hour of the day. He was elected 43rd President (4+3 =7) on the 7th of November in the state of Florida (a 7 letter state) which is typographically shaped like the number 7-and where he won 25 electoral votes to seize the presidency (2+5 =7). Moreover, Bush won Florida a mere 537 votes (the 7th number of the 530 series).
Now at the time of George Bush's election brother Jeb, 7 years his junior*, was the 43rd governor of Florida-foreshadowing that Florida would make brother George 43rd president. Amazing, isn't it? But there's more: George Bush married his lovely wife Laura (who he first met in 7th grade) in 1977 (when he first ran for political office). And lastly, the 2004 election, when Bush won a second term, came down to the state Ohio , which has given this nation 7 Presidents (all Republican**).
*George Bush was born 1946, Jeb 1953.
** W. H. Harrison, Grant, Hayes, Garfield, McKinley, Taft and Harding.
Could it be that Cantor's defeat signals an end to the Bush presidential dynasty? That George Bush was the last of the Bush presidents? And that Jeb Bush will not be the Republican nominee in 2016-16 years after his brother ran for and won the presidency (1+6 = 7)? In other words, if Jeb chooses to run will he lose, like Eric Cantor lost, in the GOP primaries? The Republican voters of Virginia's 7th District found Eric Cantor too liberal on immigration reform. This does not bode well for Jeb who is liberal on immigration like Cantor, as George Will says (see).
*George Bush was born 1946, Jeb 1953.

"Unless Iraq wakes up and institutes political reform US forces will not intervene to [crush al Qaida] end the conflict," says Obama.
In saving feckless Maliki's prime ministership our feckless president doomed Iraq to worse than pre-surge sectarian strife verging on all out civil war and regional chaos.
Who lost Iraq? The answer is simple: George Bush broke Iraq then fixed it. Then Barack Obama (the greatest US enabler of Iranian power) broke it all over again-and maybe worse than before. How? By recklessly intervening in Iraqi politics in 2010 and (joining with Islamonazi Iran) effecting the outcome of the national election. What did Obama do? Kowtowing to Iran's supreme (terrorist) leader he stupidly defied Iraq's strife weary electorate who wanted reform and reconciliation (and voted in a close election for national unity candidate Ayad Allawi) and made sure that the disastrous status quo was maintained: that miserable, incompetent, divisive, Nouri al-Maliki (Iraq's anti-Western, pro-Iran, fundamentalist Shiite prime minister) continued in power.
Iranian puppet PM Maliki at news conference in March 2010 pointing to the photos of two al Qaida leaders killed by US/Iraqi forces. "We're not sliding into civil war and I'm the man that's preventing that," said Maliki.
Thanks to the blundering, politics driven, weakling in the White House who's been uselessly trying (through diplomacy, sanctions, and butt-kissing appeasement) to stop Iran from going nuclear Obama caved into Ayatollah Khamenei's demands to keep Maliki (a one time refugee in Iran) as Iraq's puppet head of state. What phony concessions and promises Iran made to Obama is anyone’s guess. But what is clear is that Obama swallowed the offer hook, line and sinker and joined Iran to ensure Maliki's survival as PM.
Iraqi National Movement's leader and reformer secular Shiite, Sunni-backed Ayad Allawi (feared and hated by Iran and deserted by the US) was robbed by Obama and Iran of the prime ministership in post-election backroom politics.
And now the chickens are coming home to roost as a completely demoralized Iraqi army loathing their hyper-partisan, paranoid Shiite leader can't defeat the dreaded, death-loving, Sunni-backed soldiers of ISIS as they sweep over Iraq in murderous rage en route to Baghdad. In short, after stupidly backing Iran's man the wrong against Ayad Allawi (a true pro-Western, uniter, reformer, and anti-Iranian patriot), Obama is calling for political reform as a necessary precondition for intervening militarily in Iraq to defeat ISIS. It's mind-boggling. Is it too late for Iraq? Is the country irreversibly polarized and plunging into sectarian civil war? Has the hour passed for the good Ayad Allawi to save it? The situation is bleak.
NECESSARY READING TO UNDERSTAND OBAMA'S COMPLICITY IN THE RUINATION OF IRAQ
In 2007 Barack Obama and the Left opposed the Bush/Petraeus surge in Iraq predicting it would be a catastrophic failure with a dramatic upsurge in US soldiers coming home in body bags. But Bush and Petraeus made fools of Obama and Left as al-Qaiada was crushed and the surge was a smashing success, bringing a relative degree of stability, order and peace to Iraq. This is why Petraeus was trashed by the Left; Move On.Org called him "General Betray-us," because his seemingly miraculous achievement (at first I too was pessimistic, but happy with the outcome) betrayed their negative expectations and humiliated them.
But once Obama assumed office he'd change all that. He'd fully withdraw US forces from Iraq undoing all the benefits of the surge and returning the country to pre-surge chaos and worse-creating the very catastrophe (not by design) he and the Left predicted and hoped for.
And that is where we are today with Obama indifferent to Iraq's terrible fate-telling Prime Minister al Maliki (who requested needed airstrikes on al Qaida targets): 'Tough sh*t, you're on your own. Don't bother me with your troubles. I'm too busy turning Afghanistan into another Iraq and closing Gitmo for the Taliban. Ask Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld to help you. They ousted Saddam and started the war...not I; I opposed it from the start and have no moral obligation to help you. If you need help call on Iran. They'll be glad to do for you what they're doing for Assad. If that means compromising your sovereignty and becoming Khamenei's vassal state I couldn't give a damn. Come to think of it it's better for you than being ruled by al-Qaida-they hate you Shiites worse than Jews; and given the chance they'd kill you by the millions.'
This is Obama's cold-hearted, feckless approach to the crisis. He's Pontius Pilot washing his hands of Iraq as the country is crucified. Khamenei and the mullahs must be salivating all over each other with this new opportunity given by Allah to expand the Shiite Crescent on their way to regional hegemony with the bomb.
IT'S DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN
Reminds one of Operation Frequent Wind (above) when American civilians evacuated Saigon as the North Vietnamese Army was advancing on the city.
Go in peace and recruit no more.
"Guantanamo is probably the number one recruitment tool that is used by these jihadist organizations. And we see it in the websites that they put up. We see it in the messages that they're delivering....." - President Obama December 22, 2010
And so the sickening lie is repeated to this day without so much as a smidgen of evidence that the military prison at Guantanamo Bay with its deadly population of al Qaida and Taliban thugs is a major recruitment tool for anti-US Moslem terrorists, and therefore a danger to our national security. Go to any major terrorist website, Gitmo prior to the release of the Taliban Five is scarcely ever mentioned. But what you'll find is disconcerting: in site after site is a frightening new confidence and triumphalism that the star of al-Qaida supremacism is rising-a triumphalism that started on September 11, 2012.
For on that day hundreds of enraged, rioting jihadis carrying the black al Qaida flag , and led by Mohammed al-Zawahiri (brother of bin Laden's successor), gathered outside the US Embassy in Cairo shouting "OBAMA, OBAMA WE ARE ALL OSAMA!" while burning American flags. What was crystal clear from this event (contrary to what Obama and Hillary said) was that a stupid, amateur YouTube video insulting Islam's prophet had little or nothing to do with it; the reason was to show America and the world, on the 10th anniversary of al-Qaida's deadliest attack, that Barack Obama (Osama's killer) was either delusional or a liar when he said that al Qaida was defeated and practically dead; that it died with its founder in Abbottabad, Pakistan in the Navy Seal raid never to rear its ugly head again. Obama the Great had brought to a victorious end the Global War on Terror necessarily begun by George W. Bush in reaction to 3000 deaths; and America was safer than it's been in a decade. And so the story line went throughout the 2012 campaign as people like me cringed recalling the 13 Ft. Hood dead, and the Christmas Day bomber who nearly blew up a plane.
Indeed, the purpose of the Cairo rally on 9/11/12 was to show the world that bin Laden's spirit, ideas, and horrible dreams were very much alive in the hearts and minds of his bloodthirsty jihadis; that he didn't die in vain; that his death was an inspiring martyrdom that's renewed and re-energize them; and that the war he declared against the US, far from over, was entering a new and dangerous phase. And since that day in Cairo they've been proven correct. Starting with a murderous attack on the Benghazi consulate just hours later al-Qaida has demonstrated a breathtaking resiliency advancing across North Africa and the Middle East as the US retreats, filling the void left by Obama's and Hillary's insane destruction of the Pax Americana-the greatest force for stability, peace, and freedom in the world.
Truth is, Al-Qaida, more powerful and in control of more territory then ever, is using America's growing weakness, retreat, and decline as its NUMBER ONE RECRUITMENT TOOL to swell its murderous ranks. Where ever we look we see a fired up al-Qaida leadership and base believing with perfect faith that America's on the run, that it's giving up the fight, and that victory is near; that bin Laden, Mohammed and Allah, and the millions of warriors from times past who turned Islam into an evil empire, are guiding them from heaven in the restoration of Islam-the return of the caliphate to world history after its absence of 90 years...to be resurrected from the dead on the sick, corrupt, rotting corpse of Obama's collapsing US.
NO, MY FRIENDS
AL-QAIDA'S NUMBER ONE RECRUITMENT TOOL IS
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

"If it’s true Bo Bergdahl deserted his platoon it was the heroic thing to do. Look who he deserted: inhuman, psychopathic, Genghis Kahn savages who raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, cut off limbs, blew up bodies, randomly shot civilians, razed villages, shot cattle and dogs for fun and sport. When this morally sensitive, peace-loving young man (who fasted and meditated in Buddhist monasteries before enlisting) could no longer stomach the barbarity and cruelty of his sadistic squadmates his father counseled him to follow his conscience and do the right thing; and he did preferring the consequences of desertion to serving with such animals and miscreants. Make no mistake his desertion was a profile in courage; and for that Bo Bergdahl is a hero deserving high honor and the medals I threw away." /sarc
Tax cheat, 1%er, oil millionaire Marc Rich saved by "dead broke" Bill Clinton from rotting in prison.
LET ME UNDERSTAND THIS
The woman who quickly turned $1000 into $100,000 trading cattle futures left the White House dead broke? Really? Did she lose her golden touch for turning little into much? Or, as some suspect, her unheard of profit of 10,000% in six short months was made through skullduggery because her husband (then Arkansas' attorney general) was running for governor (see)?
Another question is why didn't the Clintons do for themselves what they did for millions of low income folks who they magically lifted out of poverty and into the middle class? Why didn't they get themselves a sky high mortgage worth millions that they couldn't afford through their crooked Wall Street, bankster friends? Why didn't they subprime loan their way back to wealth, good fortune and success? Look what it did for the US economy during the 90s? Happy days were here again until the party ended with the 08 crash-which Clinton's reckless spread the wealth (mortgages for all) home ownership fiasco began.
Seven million poor Americans temporarily escaped poverty under Bill until things went bad; but in 2001 he and Hill left the White House $12 million in debt.. destitute in rags. Or is it a lie? Just hours before he left office Bill pardoned fraudster, fugitive, tax cheating millionaire Marc Rich. Why? What big thing did he do for poor, broke, busted Bill and Hill, as Giuliani suspects (see)? Be that as it may Hillary claiming she was broke is political horse manure to connect with ordinary, struggling, middle class folks (see).
Here's the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats: What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership? (1/5)
What if he grew disillusioned with what he saw, didn't trust his leadership, and walked off? Legal? No. Worthy of sympathy? Maybe. (2/5)
If that were the case, the soldiers in his platoon would have all the more reason to smear him publicly now. (3/5)
Pope Francis is a Social Conservative upholding traditional moral, family and sexual values (a good thing); but he's also a socialistic illiterate in economics and a serial appeaser of Islam (two bad things). Though good and well-meaning on balance Francis has been a disappointing Pope.
As I said here Pope Francis is no Saint Francis. Saint Francis risked martyrdom trying to save Arabs from history's deadliest and most diabolical religion. He was unoffensively uncompromising in his opposition to Islam never attacking it directly but risking life and limb to win Moslems to a better, healthier, more spiritual faith. But Pope Francis is an appeaser of unappeasable Moslems accepting Islam as equal to Catholic Christianity-which will earn him their contempt and do nothing to stop the slaughter of Christians across the Moslem world. I'm not Christian, but I'd sooner be one than a Moslem, as would any rational person.
To enlighten him Pope Francis should read Frank Rega's book: "St. Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Moslems," and study up on Barack Obama's Moslem Outreach Initiative-the most colossal ongoing failure at appeasing Moslems in history. He should also heed the warning Pope John Paul II gave Mother Angelica in 1982: "BEWARE OF THE MOSLEMS ," he said. BTW, John Paul was the first (but not the last) Pope to step inside a Moslem mosque which he did in Damascus, Syria four months before the 9/11 attack - the mosque is believed to contain the head of John the Baptist which is why John Paul was there (see).
EWTN's Mother Angelica presenting Pope John II with a satellite dish where he warns her to "BEWARE OF THE MOSLEMS" - quoted from the Preface to "St. Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Moslems (see)."
IMAM RAUF'S CORDOBA INITIATIVE
Looks like Rep.Mike Rodgers has succumb to the deceptive magnetism and charms of the 9/11 Mosque Sufi-a moderate, peace-loving, ecumenical, new age guise masking a reactionary, regressive anti-Western totalitarian jihadi who points to the oppressive Islamic society of medieval Cordoba as a model of tolerance, justice, freedom and peace for the US and the world. Truth is America at its most unjust and oppressive was freer and more tolerant than Islamic Cordoba at any time in its history. You need to know nothing more than Rauf's Islamist "Cordoba Initiative (for which he was honored by ICRD)" to understand that he's a supremacist enemy within Koranically dedicated to the subversive Islamizing of our country, and the universal conquest of Islam . Only Islamists and foolish infidels would honor such a man.
Whether Rodgers knows it or not honoring Rauf clashes with his professed Constitutional Republicanism and Conservative values. Now that he went ahead with this farce (it was held on June 30th) he has a lot of explaining to do.
If Bo Bergdahl came to hate America and the US military (and by extension its Commander-in-Chief who sent him into a war he learned to loath) before his desertion in June 2009 then he now has ample cause to hate Obama and America even more. Why? Because of Obama's staggering hypocrisy and lie that he consummated the prisoner exchange with the Taliban principally and specifically for Bo's sake; because his health was rapidly deteriorating and that he feared for his life and nobly snatched it from the jaws of death bringing him home before his body became a corpse.
Indeed, Bo has good reason to resent Obama with the utmost contempt because of the lie that he acted out of compassion for him and his suffering parents; that he felt their pain and the hell they've been through these last five grueling years. No one better than Bo will see through this mirage as he must now be asking himself the big question:
"Why now, Mr. President? Why now? Why did you wait five long unendurable years to do this exchange and let me and my parents suffer so terribly? Why wasn't it done sooner when you had the chance? Why now in mid-2014 when the Taliban would have done this deal in 2009 to get their valued men back? Was it politics, Mr. President that stopped you from getting me home before my 24th birthday? Did you fear that if you freed me before the 2012 election the controversy would have hurt your campaign, and your Republican rival might now be president? Is that the reason you needlessly prolonged my agony and that of my folks?
And why did you close the deal now instead of 2013? Was it to avoid raising suspicions it was a post-election political move where I was just a pawn of your cold, calculating, self-serving purposes? A means to give your failing presidency a victory (like you had with bin Laden) to boost your standing in the polls? Is that why I wasted five years of my life rotting in a Taliban hell hole surrounded by sadistic torturers, mass killers and death with my parents eating their hearts out worrying themselves sick? Can you give me one good reason why I shouldn't hate you and America more than ever Mr. President?"
If I were Bo Bergdahl this is exactly how I'd feel.

On June 30, 2009, 5 months into the ill-fated Obama presidency Bo Bergdahl, a US soldier serving in Afghanistan, after suffering a mental breakdown and turning against the war deserted from his camp and was captured by the Taliban as a prisoner of war. And then in the 5th month (May 31st) of the 5th year of Obama's presidency, which was the 5th year of Bergdahl's captivity, the prisoner turned jihadi collaberator is traded for 5 deadly Taliban terror masters in what can only be construed as a desperate appeasement move by a president frightened for his legacy-a legacy of failure, ashes and dust with the strong possibility of post-US Afghanistan returning to the status quo ante of pre-9/11 Taliban/al-Qaida rule.
If Obama goes forward with his misguided plans to withdraw completely from Afghanistan deadly chaos and war will engulf that land (and possibly spread to nuclear armed Pakistan) as is occurring in Iraq with al Qaida making a comeback and returning in strength to plot new attacks on the United States. It's national security regression as a 9/10 president in a post-9/11 world turns back the clock before the War on Terror began putting Americans and our nation at great risk of a second massive jihad attack.
Ominously on the day Bo Bergdahl disappeared Obama delivered a speech in the White House on "Community Solutions" which began with a report on the progress being made in ending the war in Iraq (see). Obama claimed that the Iraqi people were celebrating that day as "an important milestone" had been reached in ending the war-which is still raging today. For on that day American troops had "transferred control of all Iraqi cities and towns to Iraq's government and security forces." Obama was congratulating himself on a job well done and was hopeful of a good, final outcome when US forces were gone by 2012. But one of those cities, Fallujah (the scene of the bloodiest battle of the Iraq War in 2004), has since been reconquered by al Qaida as part of a new terrorist emirate called the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or ISIS (see ). Iraq is Obama's first Vietnam with a second on the horizon in Afghanistan if he removes our forces from that country without victory.
Portentously within the next 17 days after Bergdahl's desertion Walter Cronkite and Robert McNamara died*, two men greatly responsible for our defeat in Vietnam. A sign of things to come for Obama in Iraq and Afghanistan (see).
*McNamara died July 6th, Cronkite July 17th.
