ERDOGAN – GIVE HIM THE BOOT FROM NATO

United States coup accuser is punching above his weight. A diminutive mule, ERDOGAN, is waging a verbal war against the United States and is gearing up in the trenches for the ultimate fight against Israel. What has to happen here is two-fold, one being to throw the Russia confidant out of NATO and bring to bear all of the economic weight we can against this Muslim Brotherhood bed mate. Turkey is in a predicament,  the economy is in a tailspin, their currency cratering by the minute. Turkey is in big trouble today, but it will only get worse. Remember Turkey is now entering the age of an autocrat taking exclusive power of all levers of government; the legislative and judiciary, not counting the military which has been rationalized since the coup.

What is most important here is Turkey’s stance with Russia, as far as we can tell, Erdogan went to his knees begging for Russia’s help in countering the Kurds in Syria’s Afrin fight.

So why did Russia open the air space to Turkey for the Afrin operation? What does Russia aim to achieve by helping Turkey in this we?

I have come up with the following observations while seeking answers to these questions.

1) It suits Russia’s interests

Russia’s move is in line with the direction that Turkey-Russia relations have recently taken. Russia has considerable economic, political and regional interests in Turkey. By siding with Turkey in Afrin, Russia has actually done what is necessary to protect its interests. On the one hand there are Russia’s interests in Turkey and on the other hand there are its relations with the Syrian Kurds. Obviously the former outweighs the latter. Moscow also probably calculates that the gestures it extends to Ankara help it gain an upper hand and serve as a bargaining chip vis-à-vis Turkey. Indeed, there is no doubt that such gestures will boost the perception of Russia in the eyes of the Turkish public.

2) It shows that Russia is a playmaker

Russia has been an active party in the war in Syria since 2015, supporting Bashar al-Assad with its military power against opposition groups. The steps that Russia has taken towards Turkey will help to bolster its main strategy of strengthening the Syrian regime. Once again, Russia has asserted itself as the main playmaker in Syria. It has shown that all roads lead to Moscow and has prepared the ground for its political strategy of achieving a permanent Russian presence in the Middle East. This, in return, will help Russian President Vladimir Putin achieve his aim of making Russia a powerful global player again.

3) Russia wants Turkey on its side

Russia is also taking into account the possible benefits of maintaining close relations with Turkey because it is a key player in the region. At a time when Syria’s fate is being decided, Russia has taken initiatives – such as the recent peace conference in Sochi – to bring about solutions of its own choosing while maintaining close dialogue and cooperation with Turkey. All of this will give Moscow the upper hand at the table.

4) Turkey is drifting away from the United States

One cannot assume that Russia’s move is not a part of its policy against the U.S. The deepening of disagreements between Ankara and Washington, which has led to serious fissures within NATO, does not upset Russia at all. By facilitating the launch of the Afrinoffensive, which Russia knows the U.S. would be uneasy with, Russia has caused Turkey and the U.S. to drift further away from each other. From Moscow’s point of view, Turkey’s drifting away from the West will bring it within the orbit of Russia.

5) It curbs the U.S.’s Kurdish plan

At the same time, Moscow is trying to curb the U.S.’s plans to establish a permanent American presence in northern Syria and to create an area under its influence that could eventually lead to the emergence of a state. In doing so, Russia is showing the Kurds that cooperating with the U.S. in Syria comes at a price. If the Kurds do not get enough support from the U.S. in the face of the Turkish military operation in Afrin, problems could arise between Washington and the Syrian Kurds. This would also help Russia achieve its geopolitical goals.

6) Russia is trying to mediate between Ankara and Damascus

As a result of Turkey’s operation against the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), Turkey has made indirect contact with the al-Assad regime in Damascus. The fact that both sides have troops on the ground necessitates keeping communication channels open, at least to prevent any mishap. We can imagine that out of this necessity, Russia wants to help Turkey and Syria mend ties. Russia might try to strengthen the Syrian regime by helping Turkey and Syria normalize their relations through dialogue.

7) It eases the hand of the al-Assad regime in Idlib

The Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) engagement with the PYD in Afrin has another indirect consequence. The regime in Damascus will find it much easier to act in its plans for Idlib, which is currently held by opposition groups. At a time when the international community’s attention has turned to Turkey’s military operation in Afrin, al-Assad will feel less international pressure as he makes gains around Idlib.

TIME FOR A TAKEOUT – GRUB HUB DELIVERY WAITS ERDOGAN

The coup d’etat in Turkey is fresh in our memory. There are those who contest the word coup and they may have information to justify their take on what really happened.  As we said, many Turks believe this was a setup by Erdogan – so he could take control over the levers of government. And in the aftermath of this so-called coup he did just that. Closing down opposition media organizations, rationalizing the military and jailing independent judges.

He blames the United States for providing succor to his arch enemy Fethullah Gulen.  Muhammed Fethullah Gülen ,who lives in Pennsylvania, has denied all charges that he was involved. Erdgoan demands that we extradite him – fat chance of that happening.  Gülen has suggested the coup was in-fact a “self-coup” carried out by Erdoğan to consolidate his grip on power, a belief shared among some analysts and many Turks. Putting all of the facts together it is not hard to see the bellicose nature of the Turks under Erdogan. But it is not wise to disregard his ways because a trouble maker on a quest of

Since the coup attempt Turkey’s Erdogan has gone on a rampage in Syria and against the Kurds living in Turkey. He blames them for the ills Turkey is facing. Also, Erdogan has belligerent words for the Greeks who control part of the island of Cyprus. (see below) But his number one nemesis is Israel. There is no love lost between the two. Lately, Netanyahu and Erdogan have exchanged fighting words.  Israel has Erdogan’s number and is not afraid to play it.

Turkey,  a member of NATO,NATO Logo big mistake was made in letting him join the exclusive club, has taunted the United States and its allied members by breaking bread with Russia and Iran. The time has come to take him out – Grub Hub is ready to deliver the package. With John Bolton in control it won’t be long before the Muslim’s head starts to roll. 

So let it be written, so let it be done.”

From the West’s perspective, the Turkish government is the equivalent of a close relative with a substance abuse problem: President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has become addicted to authoritarianism. The effects on the family — in this case the NATO alliance, which has included Turkey since 1952 — are devastating. It’s time for President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron, two leading NATO heads of state, to have a clarifying conversation with Erdogan about his country’s self-destructive impulses.

Trump has shown patience with Turkey’s ongoing military operation against Kurdish militias in northern Syria, which Erdogan considers an existential threat. This should make the Turkish leader more inclined to listen to the U.S. president. However, so far Israel has stayed on the side lines, but in short order will be losing its patience; this means that they most likely will support the Kurdish opposition going forward.

(from Wikipedia)Cyprus was settled by Mycenaean Greeks in two waves in the 2nd millennium BC. Cyprus was placed under British administration based on the Cyprus Convention in 1878 and was formally annexed by Britain in 1914. While Turkish Cypriots made up 18% of the population, the partition of Cyprus and creation of a Turkish state in the north became a policy of Turkish Cypriot leaders and Turkey in the 1950s. Turkish leaders for a period advocated the annexation of Cyprus to Turkey as Cyprus was considered an “extension of Anatolia” by them; while, since the 19th century,[13][14] the majority Greek Cypriot population and its Orthodox church had been pursuing union with Greece, which became a Greek national policy in the 1950s.[15] Following nationalist violence in the 1950s, Cyprus was granted independence in 1960.[16] In 1963, the 11-year intercommunal violence between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots started, which displaced more than 25,000 Turkish Cypriots[17][18] and brought the end of Turkish Cypriot representation in the republic. On 15 July 1974, a coup d’état was staged by Greek Cypriot nationalists[19][20] and elements of the Greek military junta[21] in an attempt at enosis, the incorporation of Cyprus into Greece. This action precipitated the Turkish invasion of Cyprus on 20 July,[22] which led to the capture of the present-day territory of Northern Cyprus in the following month, after a ceasefire collapsed, and the displacement of over 150,000 Greek Cypriots[23][24] and 50,000 Turkish Cypriots.[25] A separate Turkish Cypriot state in the north was established by unilateral declaration in 1983; the move was widely condemned by the international community, with Turkey alone recognizing the new state. These events and the resulting political situation are matters of a continuing dispute.

THE TIME HAS COME TO WHACK TURKEY’S TWO BIT PUNK

NOT GOOD: Erdogan is making OMINOUS THREATS to the US and Israel over Jerusalem

The Middle East has been blowing up since President Trump last week changed US policy to recognize Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel.

There has been much strife in Jerusalem and the West Bank with Palestinians violently protesting against the move. And, of course, Israel has had to use violence at times to keep order.

Erdogan himself has been using dangerous rhetoric to keep the situation as hot as possible, calling Israel a terrorist state that kills Palestinian children:

“Israel is a perfect invader state,” Erdoğan said. He also called Israel “a terrorist state.” “We won’t leave Jerusalem to the mercy of a child-murdering country.”

Netanyahu hit right back, saying:

I‘m not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villages in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, helps Iran go around international sanctions and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza, kill innocent people…”

As usual, Netanyahu nailed it.

This morning Erdogan was at it again, this time attacking the US and making ominous threats against the ‘owners of Jerusalem’:

DAILY SABAH – President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Monday that the U.S. is responsible for the bloodshed in Jerusalem after clashes erupted in the city following U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize it as the capital of Israel.

“Those who turn Jerusalem into a prison for Muslims and members of other religions will never be able to clear the blood off their hands,” Erdoğan said at an event held in the capital Ankara.

Stressing that Washington is also responsible for the bloodshed in the area, the president said of Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem: “The U.S. has become a partner in bloodshed by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. We definitely do not recognize this decision, we will not recognize it. President Trump’s statement does not bind us, nor the world of Islam.”

Erdogan then said something that I would characterize as ominous:

Erdoğan underlined that the continuation of vandalism and oppression in Jerusalem is not possible. The president warned that those who deem themselves as the owners of the city will not even be able to find a tree to hide themselves behind.

Does that sound familiar? Maybe you’ll recall a similar passage from the words of Muhammed in the Hadith:

The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him…

Now it sounds like Erdogan himself is using his very own apocalyptic texts in his threats. That is not good.

Erdogan continued:

The president vowed that the struggle will not be finalized until a Palestinian state with the borders of 1967 is established. “This struggle will not end until the establishment of a sovereign and independent Palestinian state, whose capital is the city of east Jerusalem, within the borders of 1967. There is a role of the U.S. and European politics that supports Israel’s unjust occupation and settlements in what is happening today.”

So we have what I believe are three very important and ominous threats from Erdogan.

First he calls Israel and “invader state” and says he will not leave Jerusalem to the mercy of the Israelis.

Secondly, he uses apocalyptic language in telling the Israelis they will have nowhere to hide.

Lastly, he says this ‘struggle’ over Jerusalem won’t end until a Palestinian state is established with east Jerusalem as its capital.

Now you know as well as I do that there will likely never be a peaceful agreement that ends with a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, especially after this move by Trump in standing with Israel.

But the reason this is so ominous is that we know from Ezekiel 38 that Turkey and Iran leads an invasion of Jerusalem. Jesus talks about in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 that the antichrist will invade and warn that when they see armies surrounding Jerusalem, they should run for the mountains.

In Joel 4 God judges those nations who scattered his people and divided up his land:

For see, in those days and at that time,
when I restore the fortunes
of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will gather all the nations
and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.
There I will enter into judgment with them
on behalf of my people, my heritage, Israel;
Because they scattered them among the nations,
they divided up my land.

My point is that while we are not yet at the point where Turkey and Iran lead an invasion of Jerusalem, I believe we are seeing the very beginnings of these events.

Just in Istanbul over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of Muslims gathered in Yenikapi park in the name of Jerusalem being Muslim and chanted slogans like “we will liberate al-Aqsa, even if our blood flowed.” They are referring to the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

Or as another account put it, they will sacrifice their blood for Jerusalem.

It’s clear that the ‘ground’ in Turkey and other areas of the Middle East is very fertile when it comes to anger over the so-called Israeli occupation of Jerusalem. And if there is one thing that can unify the Muslim world like no other, this is it.

I would definitely call this a sign of the times, and those ‘times’ may be on us quicker than we realize.

THE BEGINNING OF THE END – POLITICIANS GREASED THE WAY FOR CHINA’S GRAND THEFT OF AMERICAS CORPORATIONS AND WORLD HEGEMONY

Image result It was not to be this way but unintended consequences always follow major breakthroughs no matter what the advance planning. The opening of China happened after a visit to China by then President Nixon in 1972. This was to be a grand gesture of peace, a “glasnost” of sorts. However, it never occurred to America that this visit would bring a tidal wave of Chinese imported goods to America. Rather than we selling China our goods (that was a mission consideration), the Chinese turned the tables on what was to be the greatest theft of American trade secrets, engineering know-how and manufacturing bravado. The China syndrome is real, it has surreptitiously permeated through to the United States. It did not happen overnight, but as we now know, it is happening now and there is no turning back; America has been had.

At first China sold us cheap junk amassing more purchasing power in dollars that the world has never seen; at one point holding over three trillion United States treasury bills, notes and bonds. China’s footprint covers just about every corner of the world. Their power is unprecedented, their reach beyond question. Country after country dares not challenge them. China will dominate the world in the next two decades in science, engineering, in manufacturing, product design and world hegemony. We on the other hand will see our fortunes disappear like a mirage in the desert sand.

China is manufacturing passenger aircraft in a challenge to Boeing, they are bringing Chinese automobiles to Europe, soon the United States, their fledgling biotech industry is in the forefront of new discoveries, not to mention their prowess in AI, robotics and computer technologies. But what scares us most are the Chinese ex-patriots who hone their skills in the United States and return to the homeland.

Chinese people are driven by desire for a better life through education from the get go. Their upbringing sees to it that life revolves around respect, mutual consideration and an unbearable drive to succeed. Apathy has infected the great majority of Americans who are not driven to succeed, but are very happy with a 4k HD TV and a cell phone; education is no longer a prime goal, neither is to be the best you can be. To make the most of a one time opportunity of the life here on earth is a gift, but the majority of Americans don’t see it that way. When they realize that the beginning of the end is closing in on them it will be too late to turn back the clock.  A back of the envelope calculations reveals that 20% plus of the Ivy League schools are Asian American. However, accounting for international admissions the number is significantly higher.

Is there a away to reverse the China onslaught? The next two decades will provide the answers. From this vantage point the future looks bleak. An important point to consider, China thinks long term, we think short term. Chinese government is the engine that drives the private sector with a bias that thwarts foreign competition on the home front. However, they use our laws to open doors for their companies to make inroads in the United States. This is seldom possible in China because of their government run judiciary.

NATO ONE STEP CLOSER TO HEAVING TURKEY OUT

The Muslim Brotherhood Jihadist ruling Turkey has gone to far.  NATO members are serupticiously holding talks on heaving this murder out of the organization. Blaming the United States for the attempted coup, all the while accusing us of harboring Fethullah Gulen have caused a major schism in our relationship. He is sought by the Turkish government for alleged involvement in the 2016 coup attempt.  Additionally, there is no love for Israel as this Napoleon complex diminutive can’t get over the controversial and war like provoking  Mavi Marmara incident. Realpolitik played a part in Israel’s latent response and regret of the incident. Note that Obama put the proverbial gun to Netanyahu’s head.

NATO in the past has looked the other way when it was to their advantage, Turkey is strategically located enabling NATO and the U.S. coalition to use Turkish airspace; Turkey needs to be fore warned that their place in history will be dictated by their actions against the NATO countries and their diplomatic transgressions. In the latest act of incitement Erdogan spews from his rabid mouth that Israel is “playing with fire” concerning their actions on the Temple Mount.  However, Erdogan fails to mention the real crime against humanity is the actions regarding the Hagia Sophia. Once the center of Eastern Christendom, Constantinople competed with Rome.

From the date of its construction in 537 until 1453, it served as a Greek Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople, except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935.Hagia Sophia Mars 2013.jpg

In 1453, Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Turks under Sultan Mehmed II, who ordered this main church of Orthodox Christianity converted into a mosque. By that point, the church had fallen into a state of disrepair. Nevertheless, the Christian cathedral made a strong impression on the new Ottoman rulers and they decided to convert it into a mosque. The bells, altar, iconostasis, and sacrificial vessels and other relics were removed and the mosaicsdepicting Jesus, his Mother Mary, Christian saints and angels were also removed or plastered over. Islamic features—such as the mihrabminbar, and four minarets—were added. It remained a mosque until 1931, when it was closed to the public for four years. It was re-opened in 1935 as a museum by the Republic of Turkey. Hagia Sophia is currently (2014) the second-most visited museum in Turkey, attracting almost 3.3 million visitors annually.

Before the world pays attention to this Turkish imbecile they must demand that the Hagia Sophia be restored to its rightful place in history. It is noteworthy to remind those Christians that Turkey once 100% Christian is now outnumbered by Muslims, 80,000,000 to less than 200,000. this is a manifestation of the treatment Christians receive in the Muslim world.

Currently and subsequent to the defeat of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Erdogan has gone on the warpath against the Kurds. Especially in Syria does he have little tolerance for a Kurdish enclave on its border. The foaming at the mouth war monger is intent on crushing any kind of Kurdish control of territory, be it in Turkey, Syria or Iraq.  U.S. backing for the Kurdish YPG fighters in Syria has infuriated Turkey, which views their growing battlefield strength as a security threat due to a decades-old insurgency by the Kurdish PKK within in its borders.

In an August 2017 interview Erdogan said, “We will not leave the separatist organization in peace in both Iraq and Syria,” Erdogan said in a speech on Saturday in the eastern town of Malatya, referring to the YPG in Syria and PKK bases in Iraq. “We know that if we do not drain the swamp, we cannot get rid of flies.”

The YPG denies Turkish allegations of links with Kurdish militants inside Turkey, saying it is only interested in self-rule in Syria and warning that any Turkish assault will draw its fighters away from the battle against Islamic State which they are waging in an alliance with local Arab forces.

Erdogan’s comments follow the appointment of three new leaders of Turkey’s army, air force and navy last week – moves which analysts and officials said were at least partly aimed at preparing for any campaign against the YPG militia.

Turkish forces swept into north Syria last year to seize territory from Islamic State, while also cutting off Kurdish-controlled northeast Syria from the Kurdish pocket of Afrin further west. They thereby prevented Kurdish control over almost the whole sweep of the border – Ankara’s worst-case scenario.

Ankara considers the YPG an extension of the PKK, which is designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and European Union.

Can Kasapoglu, a defense analyst at the Istanbul-based Center for Economics and Foreign Policy Studies (EDAM), said the YPG “remains at the epicenter of Turkey’s threat perception”.

However, the cuddling up to Iran and Russia maybe the straw that broke the camel’s back. Erdogan has gone too far. NATO is alarmed at the new Turkish posture; they are now considering booting Islamic Turkey from their association. Why defend Turkey if attacked? That is the question.

Russia, Turkey and Iran will hold summit talks on Syria next week as Ankara threatens a possible attack on U.S.-allied Kurdish forces and tensions rise between Moscow and Washington over the future of the war-torn state.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will host his Turkish and Iranian counterparts, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Hassan Rouhani, on Nov. 22 in the Black Sea resort of Sochi to discuss Syria and regional developments, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news service said Thursday. The three powers are key players in Syria, where they’ve spearheaded a cease-fire initiative and are now cooperating on a political settlement.

THE AMERICA WE LOVED – GOD BLESS AMERICA

Once upon a time, what seems like a long time ago, Americans woke up to the sound of roosters crowing, sun rising and the light of day putting a happy face on us all. Today we rise with mayhem all around us, yes we see the sun, but don’t see the light of day. What happened to us? Americans are divided more than ever and we know the reason why.

First off is the Lame Stream Media which began the recruitment of brainwashed journalists from elite schools. Taught by the liberal progressive types who shut down discussion of alternate views; they failed to disseminated the facts, resulting in one track brains of those students who fell into their domain. This eventually perpetuated the false narrative that they were always right and those who oppose them were always wrong – no in-between, no discussion.

Of course they will shoot out their facts (fake facts) to make their claim. But upon further analysis we find no truth to their so called argument. For instance the economic theory called Keynesian-ism, named after the late economist Lord John Maynard Keynes. We know how that worked out; Venezuela and Cuba are prime examples. But these socialist autocracies are not the prime example – the United States, Italy and Greece have or will meet their fate. Greece already has, Italy is closing in behind the United States as the next paper hanger to take the plunge. Proof is in the pudding, check the purchasing power of the almighty $$$ and the implosion of the Great Britain’s ###. Both have collapsed faster than the Hindenburg which went down in flames.

So here we are, a time of despair, infighting, outfighting tantamount to civil discourse being thrown to the wind. The Hollywood sect paved the way; first it was G, the GP, then R, then X, then XXX. What was XXX thirty years ago is today’s R. A breakdown in morals perpetuated by the social agenda. This, by the way paved the way to families without fathers, the welfare state and the democratic hegemony inbred in the bureaucracy. The tail is waging the dog. The Great Society became the Welfare Society. The New Deal became the Bad Deal.

An evaluation of the liberal mind will ultimately reveal them to suffer from an incurable disease – that being socialism; taking from the rich and giving to the poor – gifting to the lazy, taking from the productive. The only cure known to eliminate this malady is through a lobotomy or preorbital lychonomy. Every last one of them must be reprogrammed through physical, psychological, injection or electronic means.

With all being said, the blame is not entirely the fault of the Democrats, the Republicans also suffer from a malady called COMPROMISE. These individuals are the ones with no backbone, weak at the knees, falling for false narratives under pressure, succumbing to a made up public opinion fostered on them by the media,  devoid of any principle except staying in office.

Truly the only way out of the disaster facing us is to replace one or more liberals on the Supreme Court; hopefully they will see the light and rollback the biased political opinions that got us to where we are today.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

STRANGERS IN YOUR OWN LAND

by MIKE FLYNN20 Nov 201510,720GettyImages-495150466 trump crowdA Super PAC tied to Ohio Governor John Kasich is annnouncing a new multi-million dollar effort to torpedo Donald Trump’s campaign for the Republican nomination.

Trump’s continued dominance of national and state-level polling has vexed the GOP establishment and pushed it to near-panic as voting nears.

A recent survey of public attitudes by Reuters/Ispos, though, suggests caution for the GOP establishment.

Whatever failings there may be in his specific policies, Donald Trump’s campaign has tapped into a strong, visceral feeling of millions of Americans. Seeking to destroy Trump, the candidate, may further alienate the Republican party from a rapidly growing block of voters.

According to the Reuters survey, 58 percent Americans say they “don’t identify with what America has become.” While Republicans and Independents are the most likely to agree with this statement, even 45 percent of Democrats share this feeling.

More than half of Americans, 53 percent, say they “feel like a stranger” in their own country. A minority of Americans feel “comfortable as myself” in the country.

There are no doubt lots of reasons underlying this feelings. Demographically, Americans holding these views tend to be white, older, live in the South and have less than a college education. Politically, they are cordoned off as the white working class. While they rarely attract much attention from the political class, they still represent an enormous block of voters.

Their numbers may be declining relative to the entire population, but they are still the largest single block of voters. In many critical swing states like Ohio, Florida, and North Carolina, they represent a significant base of voters that can determine the outcome of elections.

The reasons for their alienation are both cultural and economic. The economic anxiety sparked by the financial crisis in 2007-8 has likely pushed them further away from the mainstream political parties. This isn’t solely a phenomenon on the right, as the resurgent popularity of explicitly socialist policies on the left attest.

Even allowing that the economy has officially been in recovery for the past six years, its benefits haven’t been felt widely. The jobs gained during the economic recovery have generally been at lower wages and benefits than before the Great Recession. The number of Americans not in the labor force, on food stamps or permanent disability have all reached historic highs. Concerns over income inequality have increased as the Federal Reserve has pumped trillions of dollars of stimulus into Wall Street and the financial markets.

There are cultural factors as well.

Several years ago, leading Democrat strategists created the “Bobby Kennedy Project,” an effort to increase the party’s appeal to white working class voters. The effort was soon abandoned, though, when it became clear that the party would have to moderate some of its more progressive social positions. The Democrat party, for now at least, has staked its future on appealing to young and minority voters.

Whether or not this is the politically smart play for the future remains to be seen. In the present, however, it means that a huge block of voters feel alienated and are up for grabs politically. Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” is perfectly attuned to those voters who feel increasingly like “strangers” in their own country.

Panic breeds actions born out of emotions rather than somber reflection. The Republican establishment is understandably panicked at the thought of Donald Trump capturing the party’s nomination for President. It is convinced, perhaps incorrectly, that a Trump candidacy will doom the party’s chances next year.

Its zeal to derail his campaign carries huge risks for the party, however. The Trump phenomenon is not simply the product of a media-savvy, hyper-personality candidate. It is drawing strength from very real sentiments of a huge block of voters. The Republican party may take out Trump, but it alienates these voters at its peril.

THE END OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION

Apparently not on the radar yet, but obviously it should be. This is a hot button issue.  Like the 9-11 bombers who took flying lessons, but spared the landing part. And who in their right mind would ever think that a plane could fly into the Pentagon – our military nerve center. Of course most civilians thought it to be heavily guarded and the periphery rimmed with the appropriate missile defense. So it is easy to see how much we thought would be, but turned out it didn’t. This brings us to the demise of  Western Civilization.  Liberalism, the worst poison known to man is the main culprit.

Not likely to be thought of on a daily basis, but our culture is based on the influences of  the civilizations of Classical Greece and Rome as well as Ancient Israel and early Christendom are considered seminal periods in Western history; cultural contributions also emerged from the pagan peoples of pre-Christian Europe. 

Thus, the great ancient capitals were linked – cities such as: Athens, home to Athenian democracy, and the Greek philosophers AristotlePlato and Socrates; the city of Jerusalem, the Jewish capital, where Jesus of Nazareth preached and was executed around AD 30; and the city of Rome, which gave rise to the Roman Empirewhich encompassed much of Europe and the Mediterranean. Knowledge of Greek, Roman and Judeo-Christian influence on the development of Western civilization is well documented because it attached to literate cultures, however, Western history was also strongly influenced by less literate groups such as the Germanic, Scandinavian and Celtic peoples who lived in Western and Northern Europe beyond the borders of the Roman world. Nevertheless, the Mediterranean was the centre of power and creativity in the development of ancient Western civilisation. Around 1500 BC, metallurgists learned to smelt iron ore, and by around 800BC, iron tools and weapons were common along the Aegean Sea, representing a major advance for warfare, agriculture and crafts in Greece.

As the centuries passed and the stargazers wondered, the 21st century arrived;  and in its arrival Western influence has been challenged as never before. Not because of its strength but its weakness. Embracing all cultures became the lynch pin of their demise. In England, France, and to some extent Germany the walls of nationalism were slowly torn down by socialists.

The European Union broke down borders allowing for dilution of once hemogenous societies. Strange peoples migrated to the European states, Muslims from far off lands, culturally at odds with Western Values.  Liberalism was the key that opened the door to the destruction of once monolithic states. Now government had to deal with a segment of society who did not fit in. That was a problem on two fronts, they demanded welfare, housing and food, but the major problem arose when they demanded Western Society conform to their ways instead of them assimilating to their home country.  Sorry to say that the problem is not going away.

Click here for a list of the Muslim killings in the heartland; the United States during the past forty years has not been immune from attack from these terrorists, our mortal enemies. America must realize that Christianity itself is the target of Islam. Proof is no farther than the ISIS purge of Christians in the caliphate. Christians have been leaving the Middle East of the past fifty years; they are targeted just as Jews are targeted by propaganda and bullets. It is no different in Nigeria and the Philippines.

Free loving peoples need to understand the indoctrination that pervades these societies. The Koran is not a book of peace, it is a book of holy war. Muslims use local laws to advance their political ideology and at the same time increase their say in local affairs. Three hundred million, twenty five percent are fervent terrorists who will stop at nothing; the other seventy five percent are believers, but remain silent as the killings continue.

Syria is the most recent example, almost hundred fifty thousand dead, all Muslims and who cares? That’s right, only the U.S., the Muslims don’t relish the killing for it advances the agenda; that is the price to be paid. Civilian deaths are collateral damage on the way to world domination. Wake up World Christians before it is you that will be between Mohammad’s sword and the Islamic killer who wields it.

One other note of importance that we must bring to your attention. For sake of argument why would the Pope entertain the thought of inviting Muslims to the Vatican. For what? A prayer service; that is the most ridiculous thing we ever heard.  He does not understand what the Muslim political propaganda campaign has gotten to him too. Before long he will be bowing to them and washing their feet.

We live in a pluralistic society and we think that  most Americans would agree that freedom of religion is a good thing. The most important thing we can take from this information is that as long as any group (even a group that we do not agree with) can be tolerant of other groups that that group has a right and a place within the United States. As Voltaire once said, I may disagree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it… However, if a group begins to dictate how others should live…well that’s a different kettle of fish! Unfortunately the tolerance track record of Islamic countries towards other religions is not very encouraging as most if not all Muslim countries have strict laws forbidding the practice of other religions. For example in Saudi Arabia the practice of proselytizing by other religions is illegal and to convert to another religion carries the death penalty and this is not at all unusual for Muslim countries.

Muslims have taken over several towns in Britain already and also in America (Dearborn, MI is one). In twenty years Muslims will be able to elect the next president in the United States. We  don’t know what the answer is to this problem but something must be done NOW in order to stop this from happening.  Important to click Your suggestions are encouraged.

One thing we must point out, Muslims and their religion (political agenda) is  not compatible with Western Values.  A glaring statistic: in America in 1970 there were over 1,000 Muslims in America, today there are over 9 million. They are multiplying faster than rabbits.

So if anyone doesn’t think we are in trouble, think twice. America is a decade behind France and England, but we are in serious trouble never the less. Can we be overcome by the Islam insurgency, yes, but we can fight political correctness tooth and nail. It must be done or the world we will leave to our children will not be the one built by and characterized as Western Civilization. Believe us when we tell you that the hijab and niqab will be as common as the blue jeans in the next decade.
