Wahhabis Plays London

“The Wahhabis control many mosques throughout the land [UK].” John Glynn

“Many British cities are full of sharia courts.” Ibid

“London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries.” Ibid

“Females at Queen Mary University of London had to use a separate entrance and were told to sit in a room without being able to ask questions or even raise their hands.” Ibid

Welcome to Sharia.

In April of this year, in an article titled “4 Reasons Why London is The Worst,” Maria Ebele had this to say: “London has the reputation of one of the greatest cities in the world. But I’ll let you in on a secret: if you ever want to make friends with a Brit who is not from London, casually drop in conversation that London isn’t your most favourite place in the world. Then sit back and watch. Most likely, you’ll see his or her eyes light up with glee at the opportunity to rip into the nation’s capital.”

The author has a point. Over the past couple of years, more than 340,000 people have moved away from London amid rising levels of knife crime, according to reports. Extortionate property prices and poor air quality are also cited as reasons for people choosing to leave the capital and set up a new life elsewhere in the UK. Obviously, people want a better quality of life; also, people would prefer not to get stabbed.

However, could there be another reason for the mass exodus? Continue reading

Let’s End This Pointless War in Afghanistan Now

By Daniel G. Jones, American Thinker, August 18, 2019

Our eighth round of talks with the Taliban, concerning terms for a U. S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, has concluded without agreement.  We can’t agree on a timetable (we want two and a half years; the Taliban want us out within nine months).  We can’t agree on a ceasefire (we say now; they say not until our deal is finalized).  We can’t agree on how to prevent Afghanistan from becoming a safe haven for terrorists (actually, we can’t even agree on the definition of “terrorist”).

The good news is that we are “inching closer” to a “draft agreement,” according to experienced foreign policy experts.

Who are these experts, and what do they know about Afghanistan?  Have they talked to the British?  The British negotiated with the Afghanis in the 19th century, and their tale is hair-raising.

In 1839, during the First Anglo-Afghan War, British troops occupied the city of Kabul.  There, they secured an uneasy peace, mainly by bribing local potentates.

In November 1841, Wazir Akbar Khan declared a general revolt.  Shortly thereafter, an Afghani mob murdered political officer Sir Alexander Burnes and his staff.  The British commander, Sir William Elphinstone, ignored the incident.  When Afghanis started shelling the British encampment from a hill outside the city, British forces engaged the enemy but withdrew after suffering heavy casualties.

Mass Murder—Part 2

212886

“When it comes to mass shootings it needs to be made clear: guns don’t kill people. Political rhetoric doesn’t kill people.  Drug-fueled psychotics are what kill people.”  Frank Friday

“Marijuana, which might be tolerated by a lot of the adult population without great consequence, seems to have a terrible effect on the brains of young men with these mental diseases—diseases that start to reveal themselves only in the late teens and early 20s.” Ibid

The real cause of the shootings

By Frank Friday, American Thinker, August 7, 2019

The aftermath of the terrible recent shootings surprised no one.  The apparent white nationalist sympathies of the El Paso shooter, despite his anti-Trump comments, set off a lefty firestorm of attacks on the president and the NRA.  Beto O’Rourke, desperately trying to reclaim the political spotlight, was the most despicable of all in blaming Mr. Trump.  Never mind: for every shooter who the media decides must have conservative thoughts, there are several leftist mass shooters.  The Dayton shooter was a Liz Warren fan; the GOP baseball team shooter worked on the Bernie Sanders campaign; and the Dallas police shooter, like President Obama, was an ardent BLM-supporter.  Yet no one calls out these politicians for spreading hate and creating a climate of violence.

That’s because our liberal news media are interested in a story only if they can somehow twist it for their own agenda.  If a tree falls in the forest, it gets reported only if they can blame Mr. Trump.

That’s incredibly unhealthy for our democracy.  The voters and their elected representatives are denied any kind of honest back-and-forth on the policy issues of the day by such extreme and misleading media coverage.  Criticize the corrupt black leaders of American cities, and you are a racist.  Deny that the mass shootings are the product of white supremacists and gun-makers, and you are even worse than a racist.
