Pints and Politics: Islam and Shari'a Law
Republican Party holds Pints and Politics at a local bar, with a speaker and free admission--you pay only for what you eat and drink. On Tuesday, December 1, I was the speaker on the topic "Islam and Shari'a Law." Between Parris and the San Berdo Terror on Wednesday, it was unfortunately very timely. The turnout, probably because of the topic, was 40% to 50% larger that the last couple, despite a competing GOP fundraiser. My talk was well received, lots of questions and thankfully no one passed an invite to their local Jihadist. I gave out a 12-page handout, posted below. ~Bob Dane County

Workplace Violence or Global Warming? Police, feds probe terror as possible motive in SoCal massacre
Excerpt: Law enforcement authorities are eyeing terrorism as a possible motive for an attack in
Southern California that left 14 dead and was carried out with cold precision by a "devout" Muslim and his wife, who were killed hours later in a shootout with police.
Dressed in tactical gear, wearing GoPro cameras and toting assault rifles, Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, burst into a
San Bernardino social services facility and shot up a conference room where Farook's employer, the county health department, was hosting a holiday party. The pair escaped in a black SUV after the attack, which authorities said was over within minutes, only to resurface four hours later and less than 2 miles away in a fierce gun battle on the city's main drag. ... Farook, who Burguan said was born in the U.S. and had worked at the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health for five years, was described by co-workers as a "devout" Muslim, who lived in a home in nearby Redlands, which sources described as "an IED factory." (Farook and his wife left their 6-month-old girl with Farook’s grandmother Wednesday and said they had a doctor’s appointment." They abandoned their child? Okay, stop. This was not driven by a workplace dispute. To leave your infant child and then commit horrific violence that is likely to lead to your death from police action requires an almost otherworldly devotion to . . . some other cause, something you consider more important than life, death, and the inherent biological urge to protect your offspring. “Larry from accounting keeps taking the last doughnut at staff meetings” or “they took my red Swingline stapler” isn’t the sort of motive at work here. What motivation have we seen that would make seemingly ordinary people go on mass-murdering attacks? What ideology or twisted religious fervor have we seen people willing to sacrifice their children for, willing to die for? ... "The couple didn’t leave behind a note at Inland Regional. But they did stash three explosive devices -- rigged to a remote-controlled toy car -- that didn’t go off." See, when your perpetrators are using explosive devices, it’s stupid to argue that gun-control laws are the right solution here. --Jim Geraghty, Morning Jolt. Will be an interesting come-to-Jesus moment for liberals, where they will have to convince us not to generalize about Muslims, while telling us it is correct to generalize about gun owners. Obama has already started to lay the tracks. --George. Right now Obama and Hillary are scouring YouTube for a video to blame. ~Bob)
Here's my take on the San Berdo Terror
Though the administration and the media pretend otherwise, the motive behind the murders of a Muslim Immigrant and the son of Muslim immigrants (described as a "Devout Muslim) is no more difficult than figuring out the motive of the Muslim immigrant who killed four Marines and a sailor in Tennessee, or the motives of the Muslim immigrants who killed three and wounded hundreds at the Boston Marathon, or the son of Muslim immigrants who killed 13 at Fort Hood. It is Radical Islam. And you cannot tell when a seemingly peaceful Muslim will become radicalized on the Internet or at his local mosque. It is clear that this Muslim couple were planning terror and violence from the arms and gear they had and the bombs they were making. I don't think this facility was their original target, but that something at the Christmas party set him off and they pushed the "go" button. Frankly, had they waited and carried out a more methodical attack, many more might have die. We will never know. Again, this is a "gun free" zone. I don't think my or many concealed carry guns would compete well with body armor and rifles, but it would be nice to go down shooting if you have to go down. ~Bob
Satire: Obama, Kerry and Hilary to publish revised translation of the Qur'an. By Robert A. Hall
Faced with the intractable problem that many millions of Muslims don't understand that "Islam is a Religion of Peace," and that the head of ISIS who reports a doctorate in Islamic Studies, or the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is clearer in violation of Islam when they hand gays and stone women for adultery, or that our ally Saudi Arabia fails to get the essence of Islam when the oppress women and execute witches, by Executive Order, President Obama has ordered a new translation of the Holy Qur'an. The team effort will be led by John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, who, though they don't speak and read Arabic, are Obama-certified experts on Islam. Work is already underway. For example Sura 9:5 (The Sura of the Sword) was previously mistranslated to read: "When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful." The Obama-approved correct new translation will now read, "When the sacred months are over, you may find yourself offended by infidels and driven mad by global warming, which may drive you to slay the offenders wherever you find them. You may arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them, but do not mention Allah or Islam lest the unbelievers be given the false impression that Islam is not a religion of peace. If the offenders repent and pray to Allah and render the alms levy to the mosque and to Allah's government, and promise to vote Democrat and support multiculturalism, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful."
Older, on point: Obama’s disturbing pattern of playing down Islamic terror
Excerpt: This is the same president who called the 2009 Christmas Day bomber an “isolated extremist”; whose administration insisted that the Fort Hood, Tex., shooter (who killed U.S. troops while shouting “Allahu Akbar!” and was in direct contact with al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki) had committed “workplace violence”; whose administration blamed the Benghazi, Libya, attacks on an “Internet video”; who dismissed the Islamic State as the “JV team“; and who declared that the attack by Islamic radicals on a kosher supermarket in Paris was a random shooting.
The Left Prays After San Bernardino Shooting, To Its God Of Government. The media mocked conservatives who prayed in aftermath of shooting, but many journalists showed they're as religious as anyone. By Molly Hemingway
Excerpt: At least 14 people were killed and 17 others injured in
, by Syed Farook and Tafsheen Malik, a couple who later died in a shootout with police. As with the tragic rampage in San Bernardino, California Colorado just a few days prior, there’s a frustrating lack of details. Many in the media at first focused, as they tend to do during mass shootings, on their anger with the National Rifle Association, a large gun rights and gun safety organization. Some focused on the fact that the shooting took place about a 25-minute walk from a Planned Parenthood facility. Really. Progressive and liberal politicians called for gun control. And other politicians prayed for the victims and their families while waiting for more information. That’s when things got super weird. For some reason, much of the media began mocking the efficacy of prayer. (See: The Great Progressive Church. http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/12/m-the_great_progressive_church.html)
NY Daily News Mocks Those Who Invoke God Rather Than Gun Control
Excerpt: Following the heinous December 2 attack that resulted in the deaths of 14 innocents in
, the New York Daily News ran a front-page story mocking GOP presidential hopefuls who prayed to God rather than calling for more gun control. The NY Daily News front page said, “God Isn’t Fixing This.” And the story went on to mock Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Governor Chris Christie, former Governor Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, and Donald Trump—all of whom invoked God’s name on behalf of the victims and the families of the victims of the horrible attack.

: How to Counter Armed Assaults. By Scott Stewart Reading
Nice review of history, and some thoughts on what to do if one is ever involved in some such attack. As any combat vet knows, being fully aware of things going on anywhere near you is a key faculty, followed by the ability to decide quickly what course of action to take, and then acting on it. If you're not armed, then it's get the hell out or find a really safe place to hide or barricade. If you're armed, then it becomes a personal decision to still leave, or stay in place in an ambush position and wait for the shooters to come to you, or, most risky of all, to "run to the sound of guns" and see if you can very carefully reconnoiter the area and come up on the shooters without being immediately noticed. After that, it goes to how practiced you are with your weapon, how good the field of view and distance are for the possible shots to take. Ideally, you get close enough without being noticed and put at least a couple of rounds into the center chest of the shooter. Only trying head shots if you're really close enough and are really good with your weapon. If the shooter is wearing some kind of armor, then maybe you go for the knees, or the groin area if they're facing you. Even with armor, the impact on a groin area is liable to really slow someone down. You put as many rounds into the other guy as it takes to be sure he/she is down for the count. Then you better get to a center area, put your gun away from you, and wait with outstretched hands for the cops or SWAT to get to you, so they know you are not part of the problem. Chances of any of us, especially if we're not in the more common target areas, ever having to face an attack are way, way down there. A lightning strike may be more likely. But it's best to have thought these things out ahead of time, just in case the fickle finger of fate does come your way. And if you are going to carry a gun regularly, then you need to practice regularly. --

: All Glory is Fleeting – The Demise of the Warrior Ethos. By Ray Starmann Reading
Excerpt: The current situation in the world can only be described as precarious.
ISIS and radical jihadis are wreaking havoc across the globe. Old allies are frustrated with a complete lack of US leadership and old enemies like Russia are on the move. We’ve gone from the days in 1989, where Ronald Reagan was told, “the world is quiet” during his last days in office, to “the world is on fire.” Coupled with this, is the state of the US military, which is reeling from readiness, budget and social issues. Added to the military’s problems is what I call, “the demise of the warrior ethos” itself inside the US military. Across the four services: the Army, the Navy, the Air Force and the Marines, the warrior is an endangered species, traversing slowly and cautiously through the hallways of the Pentagon as politically correct social engineer hunters seek to destroy it.
Post confirmed Donald Trump’s remarks about seeing Muslims in NJ celebrating 9/11 Washington
There is not only the report from NJ about this happening, but one of my clients, in Long Island City just outside NYC, had to drive her SUV very slowly through the street of the nearby Arab neighborhood because of the people dancing in the street and handing out candies. But after a while the local Hispanic population came out with baseball bats and drove them back into their buildings. Unfortunately, no one was badly injured. So Trump isn't as crazy on this as they are making him out to be. (Being right about a number of things that we all are upset about shows he's smart, but as far as him as President..... hopefully someone else less of a showman and more of a well informed and competent political leader who can help heal some wounds and overturn some mistakes will get the final nomination.) --
Syrians are a Terror Threat, Here are the Numbers. By Daniel
These are the facts about the attitudes of people in the Middle East in general and
Syria in particular. They aren't numbers you'll hear from the media or our leaders, because it's non-PC to acknowledge that just because people claim to be refugees doesn't mean at all that they really are helpless victims who are eager to come to the USA and embrace our values and way of life. We have already had more than ample examples that some come here to exploit the systems and in the end take up jihad here. If we had screeners who could get very serious in their questioning of every candidate, ask the kind of probing questions about religion and attitudes that have a chance of detecting the people who should not come here, that might work halfway well. But those kinds of questions are consider too aggressive, too nasty, too pushy. Just as the insane ROE tie our soldiers' hand behind their backs, the policies about vetting and what cannot be asked weaken that process tremendously. So again, my answer is not to take such risk for our people, and to spend the money building very nice camps over there for the people until they can go home. -- Del
Excerpt: Said Putin: “We have just received additional information proving that unfortunately, large volumes of oil, industrial volumes coming from oil fields controlled by ISIS and other terrorist organizations, enter
Turkey’s territory.” Erdogan has challenged Putin to provide proof, explicitly saying he’ll resign if Russia provides any. But there’s one problem: Turkish border guards have been complicit in ISIS oil smuggling for well over a year. (Erdogan is O's buddy; commiserated about raising teenage girls on past visit, per articles published. --Barb)
Turkey slammed the door on Russian sea travel Sunday, effectively shutting off Moscow’s access to the Black Sea and raising serious concerns among experts about escalating tensions in the region. The recent blockade is preventing Russian naval vessels from traveling in the Black Sea to Syria. The Russian Black Sea fleet has been a key component to Russian operations in the war-torn country, primarily operating out of the Syrian . Without access to the Turkish Straits, Russian attempts to increase force projection in port of Tartus Syria or resupply the units in the country will be extremely limited.

Rest assured that versions in Arabic and a few other languages also exist, they are very thorough in their use of the media to reach as broad an audience as possible.

Obama administration gun-running scheme armed the Islamic State
Islamic State's online supporters include 300 Americans: report
Excerpt: ...involves creation of "shout out" accounts, which enable activists to "introduce new pro-ISIS accounts to the community and promote newly created accounts of previously suspended users, allowing them to quickly regain their pre-suspension status." The study noted that, although American social media accounts linked to
ISIS are regularly suspended, among the activists such suspensions have become a "badge of honor and a means by which an aspirant can bolster his or her legitimacy." (The bad news is 300 is a MINIMUM number. The good news is that if students at can find these jamokes, NSA surely has, too. So, the real question is what to do about it/them. Isn’t conspiracy to commit violence or acts of war, even on foreign soil, a crime? Perhaps a charge of treason by aiding the enemy might work. Surely there is a way to arrest them for littering or something. And, instead of jail, deport them to live with George Washington University ISIS. Give them what they want. Ron P.)

"Yazidis, according to the story by investigative reporter Michael Isikoff, are going to be officially recognized as genocide victims, and rightly so. Yet Christians, who are also among the most vulnerable religious minority groups that have been deliberately and mercilessly targeted for eradication by IS, are not," Shea wrote earlier in November.

Now it has leaked details of at least five men it claims are recruiters for the terror group, as well as taking down 5,500 Twitter accounts. (The group calling itself "Anonymous" has been around for a while, and apparently contains a lot of free spirits and computer gurus. Now they are taking on something serious, to hit the enemies of civilization. This is a good thing, and I wish them well and great success. Meanwhile, there are, it seems, several ISIS followers or fanciers on Twitter in the USA, publishing propaganda for ISIS. Maybe some think this falls under Free Speech but I do not. And I hope the FBI is all over these people and finds ways to shut them down, maybe give them a state-sponsored vacation for a year or six. -- Del)
NEW DATE THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY: DECEMBER 11 Half of 85,000 'refugees' from terrorist hotbeds bound for
Excerpt: That’s the day that a catch-all “omnibus” budget bill is scheduled to be voted on in the House. In that bill there is expected to be full funding of President Obama’s refugee resettlement program, which costs $1.2 billion annually to bring in 85,000 refugees from more than two dozen countries around the world. About half of them will come from countries with active jihadist movements including 10,000 from
Syria, about 8,000 from Somalia, nearly 10,000 from Iraq, and several thousand more from Burma, Uzbekistan, Bosnia, Democratic Republic of Congo and Afghanistan. (Turning Republican states Democratic by dumping refugees in these states and giving them right to vote....or total genocide of the white Judeo/Christian/European stock of America (include Native Americans) and possibly African Americans by the "New American Program" to wipe the residents of the US out of their homes and neighborhoods, replacing with Islamic/Jihadist society and sharia.

At least Russia has realized its mistake in trying to be an atheistic nation state and has reopened its churches.

I don't know how many of us really want to plow through the actual, detailed science about the weather and the whole Climate Change discussion, but Monckton has made this his passion for the past decade or more, and has supplied another heavy-duty analysis below. The passionate preachers of AGW really hate and despise him, and have put a ton of smarmy comments below the article on the blog, but they don't really demonstrate any errors in his data. They imply/claim his data are wrong or inaccurate, and that the data published by various agencies that don't agree with what he's displayed must be the really right stuff. That any of the agencies might be affected by the fact that they report ultimately to Mr. Obama or others who are driving the AGW bandwagon is of course denied. And nobody touches with a ten foot pole the satellite data, which is far and away the best way we have of monitoring the planet's temperature. They just ignore it all, since there's no way to rebut it. What people refuse to discuss at all is what is really most important. Anyhow, read or skim as you wish.

I'm a little skeptical. Nothing I know of says that this, or its predecessor, are that recoilless. I suspect just a guy who knows how to fire a machine gun, coupled with a good match of stock to line of fire. --LtCol Tom Kratman,

Men allegedly beat disabled man and posted assault on victim's Facebook page
Excerpt: Two men a sheriff labeled "cowards" stole a cellphone from a suburban
Detroit man with cerebral palsy, beat him, recorded the assault on his cellphone and posted it to his Facebook page, authorities said. Nikey Dashone Walker and Shadeed Dontae Bey were arrested following the Sunday morning attack in a stairwell at the victim's apartment complex in Pontiac, the sheriff's department said. "Preying on those in our community who suffer from disabilities will not be tolerated and furthermore, to have the audacity to post their actions on the victim's page is beyond belief," Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a statement. Police have released video of the attack. (They were just having fun at the expense of a retarded kid. The AP wants to know if they've lawyered up. Where is Obama's DOJ hate-crime division?

: It’s Time For Conservatives To Confront Racism. Too often, people of color find themselves trapped between a Left that exaggerates racism and a Right that pretends it doesn’t exist. Reading

Excerpt: One prominent example is Bill Nye the Science Guy. He must really love science, because it’s right there in his name! And so he came to propound upon the causes of terrorism, arguing that yes, the recent terror attacks in
Paris could indeed be traced back to the nefarious effects of “climate change.”
Excerpt: There are two countries that I once regarded as home:
Canada, where I have spent most of my life, and Greece, where I lived for five years. Both are now lost to me. Governed by a leftist administration and effectively submitting to the adhan—the call of the muezzin—each is now under siege.
Feds Push More Ethanol Into Gasoline, But Can Your Car Take It?
This has gotten to really insane levels. It takes more energy to covert corn to alcohol than we get back by burning the alcohol in gasoline fuels. Alcohol fuel works well when you have sugar cane, but not with corn, it is one of the ideas that sounds good (let's replace nasty oil with something we can grow) but in reality is actually counterproductive. And it raises the cost of corn for food, while the big corn growers make more profit than ever before. So why are we doing it at all? Because of the millions the corn growers have invested in lobbyists and funding politicians from both Parties. And the other stupid thing is that as you increase the level of alcohol in gas, it becomes more aggressive as a bad solvent to attack the seals in your engine, so the very last thing you want to do is call for 15% alcohol fuel. But that is exactly what the feds are doing now, still on this false idea that this is a good idea for the environment. We need some politicians brave enough to stand up in Congress and fight to defund the subsidy for alcohol as a fuel additive, and at the same time tell the idiot regulators to scrap all this nonsense about 15% levels. --
