Islam and the West, the Clash of Two Worlds

Sedona AZ (December 19, 2015)SedonaEye.com guest writer Brent Maupin begins a first in his series of discovery, discussion and solutions to the Islamic terrorists:

Throughout history in any given society there are those who act, those who oppose this action, and those who are undecided. During the American Revolution it was our Founding Fathers who acted. They had the support of about one third of the population of America. Approximately one third opposed this action while the remaining one third were undecided. The American Revolution was a war for freedom unlike any established society, in its day, had seen. Subsequent to the American Revolution we have fought several wars to preserve that freedom, with the first being the War of 1812. These wars for freedom also included the Civil War, World Wars I and II, and some could argue the same for the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Gulf Wars, as well as the ongoing war in Afghanistan. Note that it was not until the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that the American people came to a consensus that all-out-war was necessary in WWII.

Currently radical Islamists, and in particular members of ISIS or ISIL, are at war with the West. The question that no one seems to have the answer for is what is the best way to fight this form of terrorism. Increased acts of terrorism are on the rise in Europe and in the U.S., and still the approach to fighting this war here at home does not change. Before the majority  of the people of this or any other Western country can come to a consensus, the history of the Muslim world must be understood. Not only do we in the West not understand the religion of Islam, but we also do not understand the culture of the Middle East, the birthplace of Islam. Without this understanding little progress in the debate amongst the American people will occur.

Before delving into the history of Islam and the Islamic world I will state something that Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali Dutch-American activist who was born into the Muslim world once said, and I paraphrase: There are millions of Muslims who want peace, but Islam is not a peaceful religion. As in the Revolutionary War, the American people are strongly divided on this subject. Is Islam a peaceful religion? Do we allow more Islamic refugees in, and will the growth of Islam in America dramatically change our country for the better or for the worse? It is through a balanced study of this subject that the American people will have to decide.

The rise and fall of the Islamic World: At various points in time from the 7th century on, the Islamic or Arab conquests included portions or all of the northern half of the African continent, all of the Middle East, the Iberian Peninsula, Greece, former Yugoslavia to the gates of Venice, India, and northward to the Crimea and, for over two hundred years, significant portions of Russia. Europe was struggling with the Dark Ages. As stated in Bernard Lewis’s book, What Went Wrong, “For centuries the world of Islam was in the forefront of human civilization and achievement.” In this continuing series we will discuss not only what went wrong with the Islamic approach to life, but likely find the ultimate solution to this clash of two worlds.

  1. Brent,

    Islam is a combined and fully integrated religious, legal, military, cultural and political doctrine. Only the political system is of interest to KAFIRs (that is, non-Muslim infidels…and that word is more offensive than any racial epithet in our language) since it determines how we are defined and to be treated by true believers in Allah… who is defined differently than our Judeo-Christian God!

    All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy—Qur’an, Sira (Mohammed’s biography) and Hadith (his Traditions) which reveals that most of Islamic doctrine is actually more political than religious. Indeed, Islam is a political and legal ideology that envelops a religious belief-system. Its legal doctrine, known as Sharia Law, must be observed and adopted by all believers in Allah and his word in the Qur’an. Therefore, democracy, republican forms of government and our U.S. Constitution are abominations to Islam. This means that Islamic true believers CANNOT ASSIMILATE into U.S. culture or find its legal system superior to Sharia Law. In fact, Islam must have a physical geographic Caliphate which requires military conquest (Jihad) or conquest by subterfuge! Therefor, the demand for acquiescence to religious diversity in the west by a Muslim minority is a tactic NOT practiced by Islam once it has achieved conquest of a nation who does not follow Mohammed’s words and commandments.

    Islam’s success comes primarily from its politics. In thirteen years as a spiritual leader, Mohammed converted 150 people to his religion he named ISLAM. When he became a political leader and jihadist, Islam exploded in growth, and Mohammed became king of Arabia in ten years.

  2. Ron Glick says:

    Don’t care how many converted first, he has billions now because he was a terrorist then & his people are terrorists now. Majority of his believers are uneducated but like India, Russia, China you have armed masses overcoming unarmed masses, you have imans controlling fiefdoms, you have inquisitions & sharia (one and same). Kill the strong beneath you & shackle the weak who have no value (teachings of Lenin & Mao & Marx). The weak include the educated & privileged, they are the weakest link in a society – they have earned something to lose & believe intellectual superiority matters more than brute strength. Reason why the communists always annihilated those folks first.

  3. Brent,

    I should have made this comment in my previous post to you above.

    You say in the first sentence of your second paragraph…”Currently radical Islamists, and in particular members of ISIS or ISIL, are at war with the West.” Your distinction earmarked as “radical Islamists” is a mischaracterization of the dominant faction in the political/religious movement known as Islam which has ALWAYS been a war with the West (not just currently). And, if that faction is mischaracterized, then so will be any conclusions you will arrive at in your “Discovery Series” that you are about to launch into.

    Why do so many Western political leaders keep trying to tell us that Islam is a “religion of peace” and that, therefore, religious diversity should be ethically applied to the practice of Islam in our country since progressive liberals in the media believe that “radicalization” within Islam is just a current aberration that should be marginalized?

    So, is there such a thing as peaceful “moderate Islam” or “normative Islam” as some want to call it? If so, then who is speaking out for “normative Islam?”

    If “normative,” or “peaceful” Muslims are being true to the values of the western perceptions of Islam, then why are they not condemning the violence? Why are they not speaking up? Why are they remaining silent? Why, Brent, do we never hear from Muslim leaders a universal repudiation of Islamic organized violence against we western Kafirs?

    There are only two possible reasons. First, Muslims who may want to speak out against the killing of Kafirs fear for their lives. Secondly, Muslim leaders consider these killings to be the valid expression of Islamic jihad, sanctioned by their holy Qur’an and its Hadith. All this reminds me of some Muslim protesters in the U.K. a few years back who chanted, “How dare you call us terrorists. We will kill you!”

    It certainly appears that “radical Islam” is in truth the “normative Islam” of today. At the very least, Islam has a potentially violent core that is deeply associated with the fundamental principles of its historically violent faith. In the worst sense, all of Islam is just being Islam…inherently violent. This violent core, with all of its terrorists and murderous intent, actually controls the entire religion and political/legal system of Islam today, as far as the world is concerned. If jihadists continue as they are, and they talk and act as if they will, while the” less inclined to violence” true believers in the guidance of Mohammed say and do nothing, another World War may be inevitable.

    Let’s face it…”Radical Islam” is, in truth, the “Normative Islam” which conflicts with your basic premise, Brent.


  4. Time will tell whose correct,

    For now I am solidly with JRN on this / his statement.

    “If “normative,” or “peaceful” Muslims are being true to the values of the western perceptions of Islam, then why are they not condemning the violence? Why are they not speaking up? Why are they remaining silent? Why, Brent, do we never hear from Muslim leaders a universal repudiation of Islamic organized violence against we western Kafirs?

    There are only two possible reasons. First, Muslims who may want to speak out against the killing of Kafirs fear for their lives. Secondly, Muslim leaders consider these killings to be the valid expression of Islamic jihad, sanctioned by their holy Qur’an and its Hadith. All this reminds me of some Muslim protesters in the U.K. a few years back who chanted, “How dare you call us terrorists. We will kill you!””

    For those of us who are over the age of 60, we are now the “old folks” we once talked about and we have enough miles behind us to realize we live in a very hostile world and America.

    Books worth reading is “One Second After” by William Forstchen, “Killing Patton” by Bill O’Reilly or “A Rabbi Looks At The Last Days” by Jonathon Bernis.

    History repeats and if you examine which countries are “sleeping” with who, were not in for a good outcome.

    Am on plane and first row is woman wearing a head scarf. Problem is she’s traveling alone and that’s against the rules for wearing the scarf. So either she’s radicalized or she’s flaunting a false flag. What do the majority Christians do on here? Offer her free snacks and drinks and accommodate her differences with a smiles d courtesy. What would her fellowbelievers do if situation on this plane reversed? Behead or kill. Seems completely clear to me. And you?

  8. J. J. says:

    OK, let’s get a grip here. Everyone in America is FREE to worship (or not worship) as they choose. It is your Constitutional and God-given right.

    It’s not OK to bring religion into politics or elementary education. It’s not OK to make kids write out the Islamic statement of faith because of separation of church and state = THE LAW.

    it’s not OK to force someone else to conduct their lives or businesses according to their religion. In this country, you’re free to buy from the business of your choice. If you do not agree with the way they run their business, you’re free to take your business elsewhere. It is not OK for those of the Muslim faith to bow down in prayer blocking the entrance to a movie theatre because they don’t like the movie. They must respect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights if they want to live here.

    I’m not against the refugees because if conditions were so bad in my country, I’d high tail it some place else. America has open arms when it comes to migrants and refugees – and I do remember all the hub bub about the Vietnamese and Cambodian boat people who came to America in the 70’s. You don’t hear anything about those refugees today – and why not? Because now they are American.

    Please do not be manipulated by headlines. Be the best person you can be and you’ll be a lot happier. If we just help the helpless amongst us, we will truly find the living Christ within.

  10. @All Readers at The Eye:

    From Snopes.com;

    HOW TO STOP ISLAMIC TERRORISTS . . . it worked once in our History . . .

    Once in US history an episode of Islamic terrorism was very quickly stopped. It happened in the Philippines about 1911, when Gen. John J. Pershing was in command of the garrison. There had been numerous Islamic terrorist attacks, so “Black Jack” told his boys to catch the perps and teach them a lesson.

    Forced to dig their own graves, the terrorists were all tied to posts, execution style. The US soldiers then brought in pigs and slaughtered them, rubbing their bullets in the blood and fat. Thus, the terrorists were terrorized; they saw that they would be contaminated with hogs’ blood. This would mean that they could not enter Heaven, even if they died as terrorist martyrs.

    All but one was shot, their bodies dumped into the grave, and the hog guts dumped atop the bodies. The lone survivor was allowed to escape back to the terrorist camp and tell his brethren what happened to the others. This brought a stop to terrorism in the Philippines for the next 50 years.

    Pointing a gun into the face of Islamic terrorists won’t make them flinch. They welcome the chance to die for Allah. Like Gen. Pershing, we must show them that they won’t get to Muslim heaven (which they believe has an endless supply of virgins) but instead will die with the hated pigs of the devil.

    posting this for you, Sedona Keith
    Published Nov 22, 2015

    Dear Sheriff Ward,

    I am writing to you today to ascertain your office and position with respect to the Hammonds and the developing situation at the Bundy Ranch with respect to “Federal Officers”.

    My name is Anna Maria Riezinger, also known as Anna von Reitz because my actual name is German and a mile long. I am an American Common Law Superior Court Judge in Alaska where operation of the Seventh Amendment Courts started up again in conjunction with the Common Law Grand Juries more than a year ago and I also serve as a Federal Postal District Court Judge for the Western Region.

    As you can clearly see by reading the Seventh Amendment all matters pertaining to living people and their property must be addressed to Common Law Courts. How then, are the Hammonds being addressed by federal admiralty courts?

    The answer lies in the past.

    During the Civil War the normal court system owed the people in the South shut down and did not immediately reopen. Commanders in the military districts in ten states appointed civilian tribunals to function under “Special Admiralty”—– a euphemism. For the purposes of these military tribunals, people and property could be addressed in an arbitrary fashion without regard for the Law of the Land. This was very convenient for the administrators and very unfortunate for the people.

    In 1866 the Supreme Court addressed the situation in Milligan Ex Parte and decided that so long as the American Common Law Courts were running there was no excuse for the use of any form of martial law. Be advised that the American Common Law Courts are up and running.

    But both the military administrators and the judges and most particularly, the Bar Associations, had a taste of arbitrary power and the bit in their teeth back then— and a concerted effort to shut the Common Law Courts down began, so as to usurp their jurisdiction and “move the venue” of the local courts off the land and into the international jurisdiction of martial law and the sea, where power could be exerted against the people and their assets on the land in a comparatively arbitrary fashion.

    By 1965 the rats had achieved their ends and almost all Common Law Courts in America were either shut down or functioning with only two offices— justice of the peace and notary publics.

    This allowed the members of the Bar Associations to impose admiralty law on the people and to avoid the guarantees of The Constitution. The use of “Special Admiralty” in a courtroom is signified by the heavy gold fringe on the flag.

    A word here about the Bar Associations and some facts about the ABA that deserve to be far more widely known, also some information about the current Court System that you probably don’t know:

    The American Bar Association is an offshoot of the London Lawyer’s Guild, an avowed Communist organization. The American Bar Association and the IRS are both owned and operated by Northern Trust, Inc. They are private, foreign debt collection agencies, not units of government, not “professional associations”, and certainly not “non-profit organizations”. As an organization representing a foreign (British) government, the Bar Associations are only allowed to function here via a Treaty (the last one in 1947) that they have abundantly violated. Their members are required to present Foreign Agent Statements as part of their credentials in open court, which they hardly ever do.

    As a result of their misdeeds and usurpations against the Law of the Land and the people and their violations of both their corporate charter and their Treaty, a commercial obligation lien of $279 trillion dollars has been assessed against the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association, and the “US DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE”—-which, it turns out, is just another private subcontractor performing “governmental services” and doing a criminally bad job of it.

    The “US District Courts” are also private for-hire subcontractors that run all the related courts in their districts. Please see Title 28, Sections 80 to 131. All these “State” Courts and “County” Courts are being run as franchises of the “US District Court”—and they are all private corporate institutions having no public office or function at all, and being related to the actual state and county only insomuch as they are operating within the geographical boundaries of a state and a county. This can be readily proven by looking up the Dun and Bradstreet Numbers, CAGE numbers, and corporate filings of these organizations. And, as was recently demonstrated by the Lufkin Case in Texas, neither the “US District Court” nor its “State” and “County” affiliates have any authority to collect debts outside the ten square miles of the District of Columbia.

    We should also clear up another misunderstanding. Back in 1864, the “United States Congress” acting as a Board of Directors for The United States of America, Inc., changed the meaning of several words by executive fiat, without telling the rest of us. For their purposes and from June 30, 1864 onward, the words “state” and “State” and “United States” are code for “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation”. Thus, instead of “US District Court” you should be reading “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation District Court” and the “Idaho State Supreme Court” for example, should be read as “Idaho District of Columbia Municipal Corporation Supreme Court”.

    Are you beginning to feel as if you have landed in the Land of Oz?

    Yes, all this means that until you make some important decisions, you aren’t working for the people of your county as an elected public peace officer. You are working as an employee of a federal corporation franchise in a private capacity. Your election is being “interpreted” as an election to an office in a private corporation. You are presently acting as a mall cop. You have no public office, no public bond, and no public oath. If you are like most members of the “law enforcement community” you are not even licensed or bonded or insured in a private capacity by your cheapskate employers. You are working for The Man, not the people.

    And all this got off track 150 years ago.

    So all those “federal agents” who are harassing the Hammonds and who are offering to arrest them and transport them to a private prison facility? They are private corporate employees of a franchise or subcontractor of the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation having no more authority than a floorwalker at JC PENNY, despite their pretensions otherwise. They are misinformed as to their authority and also misinformed regarding the identity of the Hammonds. These “federal agents” are literally foreign with respect to the Hammonds and have no jurisdiction related to them at all.

    As part of the overall outrageous circumstance and fraud scheme the members of the American Bar Association have also contrived to change the citizenship of American State Citizens—- people born on the land of the Continental United States like the Hammonds have been “kidnapped on paper” and their civil records have been falsified— which is in violation of international law, the Law of War, and the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which both the Federal United States and the British Government have signed.

    An examination of the paperwork will reveal that virtually every single American State Citizen has been deemed a “foundling” and ward of the state, the unwanted child of an unwed mother—- almost 400 million of us, and not a Daddy to be found? This is the result of a systematic and repugnant scheme by international commercial banks and the ABA, and again, all serving to change the natural venue on the land to a court venue in the international jurisdiction of the sea.

    The fact is that although human slavery has been outlawed worldwide since 1926, it is not against the law to enslave a corporation.

    So what have the criminals among us contrived to do? To “redefine” living people as corporations—- specifically as foreign situs trusts doing business under names styled like this: John Quincy Adams, and ESTATE trusts operating under names styled like this: JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, and now, most recently, Puerto Rican public transmitting utilities styled like this: JOHN Q. ADAMS.

    Look at the paperwork in your hands seemingly addressed to the Hammonds. Depending on the style used to write their names, you can tell whether the documents are addressed to foreign situs trusts owned and operated by the “State of Oregon, Inc.” , a Cestui Que Vie Estate Trust owned and operated by the “STATE OF OREGON, INC.” or a public transmitting utility owned and operated by “OREGON”—- a franchise of the UN Corporation.

    Please bear in mind that these “legal fiction entities” were created without the Hammond’s knowledge or permission and they are completely, 100%, the responsibility of those who created them. If the HAMMONDS referenced are ESTATE trusts belonging to the “STATE OF OREGON” it is high time for someone who is responsible for the “STATE OF OREGON” to pay any debts related to the franchise without delay—-and without bothering the living people these franchises are named after.

    It also behooves them to leave the living people and their property strictly alone and forego any pretense that the living Americans known as the Hammonds have knowingly or willingly agreed to act as Federal United States Citizens or have any agreed upon responsibility to act as “co-trustees” of the Public Charitable Trust, which they most likely don’t make use of and don’t even know that it exists.

    Bottom line— these “courts” and their presentments and “orders” have nothing whatsoever to do with the Hammonds as living people, nor their actual physical property assets at all. They have to do with the mis-administration of public trusts and “legal persons” operated by private, mostly foreign-owned corporations which are attempting to entrap and enslave Americans and lay false claims against their property via probate fraud, identity theft, and coercion.

    This is the kind of criminality and fraud we are dealing with, Sheriff Ward, and at the end of the day, the pedal hits the metal in your office.

    The British Government contrived the means to “press gang” the “land assets”—living people and their property assets— of America into the jurisdiction of the sea during the Second World War. They enslaved us and our property assets under false pretenses and via the use of legal chicanery “for the war effort” — and after the war, they simply continued on with these abuses.

    You have a choice.

    You can continue to operate as a good little debt slave of the Queen acting on “automatic” and taking orders regardless of where those orders come from—– that is, you can act as a corporate mall cop in a private capacity and take your licks when the people catch up with you, or you can honor the truth—- that the people of your county elected you in Good Faith, with the understanding that you would enforce the guarantees of The Constitution owed to them and faithfully impose the land jurisdiction of the united States of America on any British agents who put a tentacle outside their actual jurisdiction.

    As a Sheriff duly elected by the people of your county and operating the land jurisdiction owed to the Continental United States you have the authority to take your lawful Oath of Office, obtain a bond for your own security, and deputize as many men as you require to restrict the “federal agents” to their actual capacity. It is your duty to inform these foreign agents that the living people known as the Hammonds do not “reside” in any “federal territory” nor act in any capacity subject to the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation. You also have the right to collect Bounty from the Secretary of State and the US District Court under the terms of the 14th Amendment to cover any costs you incur as a result of having to deal with these improper demands and false claims made by their agents.

    If these “federal agents” persist, you have the authority to address the “US District Court” responsible and request their removal from your county. If they still won’t behave and honor The Constitution and the actual limits of their own jurisdiction, you have the right and responsibility to arrest the whole kit and caboodle, just as you would arrest the keepers of a tavern operating outside the Public Law.

    You also have the right and responsibility to inform the “US District Court” and their franchise affiliates operating the “State” and “County” Courts that the American Common Law Courts and Grand Juries are in operation again and any use of martial law including “Special Admiralty” is no longer excusable.

    Acting as an elected Officer of the American Common Law Court indigenous to your county, along with the justices of the peace and the notary public, it is your duty to convene the Common Law Grand Jury chosen at random from among the landowners of your county to investigate crimes, including this one against the Hammonds, and to convene a Common Law Trial Jury if necessary before the Justice of the Peace, to decide any and all matters affecting the living people and actual property assets of the county on the land. If there is no one able and willing to serve as Justice of the Peace in your County, a Justice of the Peace may be appointed by any Federal Postal District Judge in your region. Contact me if you need help.

    Please also know that as the Sheriff duly elected by the people of your county you have the authority and responsibility to demand the return of any American State Citizen being held in “federal custody” for a non-capital crime (murder or assault with a deadly weapon) within 72 hours of their arrest. So if the “federal agents” make the mistake of arresting the Hammonds under false pretenses and holding them in a private capacity, it is your right and role to present a Public Custody Order to the “US District” or other court responsible demanding that the Hammonds be released to your custody. You may then use your own discretion whether to keep them in custody or release them on parole pending final resolution of the jurisdictional complaint.

    These are matters that affect millions of people and they must be addressed openly and with determination. The British Monarch has acted in Breach of Trust against the Americans, Canadians, Australians, and others. This criminality and the resulting surreptitious use of the American Bar Association members as licensed privateers operating on our shores is a serious international crime which is being addressed.

    The misrepresentations of Americans as “foundlings” and “bastards” resulting in them being declared wards of the corporate “state” and further misrepresentations leading to them being declared “legally dead” are criminal acts of self-interested fraud carried out against us by avowed “allies” and “friends in perpetuity”– parties who are bound by the most solemn obligations of international trust and treaty, who have abused America and Americans for their own profit.

    This same pattern of lying about us and making false claims against us and seeking to “re-venue” us to foreign jurisdictions has also been attempted against our federation of nation-states as a whole. Two weeks ago, international banks and governmental services corporations in their employ appeared before the UN Trust Committee—North America, and claimed that the States of America no longer exist. They claimed among other things that we no longer have a national currency in circulation. They claimed that all 400 million Americans had voluntarily accepted Federal United States Citizenship. They claimed that our country is “civilly dead” and “de-populated” and that there are no American State Citizens.

    This was, of course, done behind our backs by people representing secondary creditors of defunct federal “governmental services corporations” claiming to be the beneficiaries and/or creditors of our estates.

    It’s time to set the records straight and for us to act in our naked sovereign capacity.

    A Declaration of Joint Sovereignty was issued by lawful heirs of the National Trust(s), together with Sovereign Letters Patent in behalf of the United Colonies of America, the united States of America, and the Native American Nations and delivered to the UN Trust Committee–North America and to the UN Security Council, the Pope, the Queen, Ban Ki Moon, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Bank of International Settlements.

    The criminals responsible for this circumstance are being recognized for who and what they are and the die is cast. We are going to get down to the bottom of this fraud and misrepresentation once and for all.

    If you wish to be called “Sheriff” of a county in America, you must now step up and earn the title and begin operating the land jurisdiction owed to the Continental United States. You are under moral and lawful obligation to protect the Hammonds against any “federal agent” and to fully inform those agents of the limitations of their jurisdiction while standing on our soil. If there is no American Common Law Court presently operating in your county, it is your duty to organize one without further delay. In most counties there are active Justices of the Peace who still perform private marriage ceremonies and public notaries are still active. You may draft your Grand Jury and if needed, Trial Juries, from among the landowners listed in the county land records. All actions of the actual County Court should be stamped in red and signed in black. All actions by admiralty courts —by whatever name they operate under—are stamped in blue.

  17. Wake up folks,

    The governments of cities, towns, states and our federal government aren’t the friends of the taxpayers!

    If you just look as the cost of government and the taxes they charge all of us so they can exist, they have waged war on the taxpayers of our once-great-nation for several decades.

    Brent Maupin’s title “Islam and the West, the Clash of Two Worlds” could include a “Third World – the US taxpayer”.

    Reuters did you better – BEIRUT — An Islamic State militant executed his own mother in public in the Syrian city of Raqqa because she had encouraged him to leave the group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Friday.

    The woman in her 40s had warned her son that a U.S.-backed alliance would wipe out Islamic State and had encouraged him to leave the city with her.

    She was detained after he informed the group of her comments, according to the British-based Observatory, which monitors the war through a network of sources on the ground.

    Citing local sources, the Observatory said the 20-year-old man executed his mother on Wednesday near the post office building where she worked in front of hundreds of people in Raqqa, a main base of operations for the group in Syria.

    U.S. Embassy spokesman Scott Bolz said Sunday that “We are working in full cooperation with Iraqi authorities to locate the missing Americans.”

    His comments came after the Arab news channel, al-Arabiya, citing its own sources, reported that three Americans had been kidnapped by militias in Baghdad…

    This war began a long time ago, President Obama failed to stop it and it’s escalated. More needless deaths. More political spin. More ignorance.

    Freedom for everyone. Have you noticed yours going down the drain? Why is there an alarm within US government since Trump’s statement about suspension of migration of Muslims to and from US and US authorities make sure there is a proper concept of safe penetration of US territory? People were stunned to learn that the head of the U.S. CIA is a Muslim! CIA Director John Brennan took his oath on a copy of the Constitution, not a Bible. Do hope this wakes up some! John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia. The Saudis are Wahhabis, the strictest of all Muslims. Women have no rights, you are an infidel to die by the sword.

    Obama’s top adviser, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where her parents still live.

    Hillary Clinton’s top adviser, Huma Abedin, is a Muslim whose mother and brother are involved in the now outlawed terrorist group Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. She married Anthony Weiner for access to America. He’s the ex NY representative sending pictures of his nude body over the Internet while married to her. A sham marriage like Hill and Bill or worse because she didn’t even bother to publicly care?

    Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for Homeland Security, Arif Aikhan, is a Muslim.

    Homeland Security Adviser, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim.

    Obama advisor and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, is a Muslim.

    Obama’s Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America is a Muslim. The Islamic Society of North America is considered a radical group amongst most Muslims themselves.

    Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a Muslim.

    Nancy Pelosi announced she will appoint Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind, as the first Muslim lawmaker on the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. It would make Carson the first Muslim to serve on
    the committee that receives intelligence on the threat of Islamic militants in the Middle East! He has suggested that U.S. schools should be modeled after Islamic madrassas where education is based on the Quran!!!

    That fact alone about Carson disqualifies him from the job, he wants to undermine free public education, the cornerstone of American culture that values every mind equally without class or faith or race or economic privilege.

    Do you remember when President Obama was sworn in that he didn’t repeat the oath properly? This is a man who can speak eloquently on about everything else and can’t or won’t go against Islam by taking an oath prohibited by the Qu’ran? Later the Democrats claimed he was given the oath again in private. No record exists that proves that.

    Congressman Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the Qur’an.

    Congresswoman Michelle Bachman was vilified and verbally tarred and feathered by Democrats when she voiced her concern about Muslims taking over our government. Considering all these appointments, does it explain why President Obama and his minions are systematically destroying our nation, supporting radical Muslim groups worldwide, opening our borders, and turning a blind eye to the genocide being perpetrated on Christians and Jews and nonbelievers all over Africa and the Middle East and Europe and Asia?

    Is our nation and our government infiltrated by people who want to destroy us? It can only get worse. Common sense doesn’t grow in everyone’s garden. Political correctness does grow like weeds.

Missing any of your inalienable rights yet?”)
