Something is Indeed Wrong

The American Spectator’s Ben Stein seems a little depressed lately, and looking out at the same Geo-political landscape he is, I can’t say I blame him. He concludes his latest morose diary by saying:

There is just a feeling in the air, a look in the sky at dusk, a look on people’s faces. Fear is everywhere. Mr. Obama cannot lose this election unless enough people believe it’s within their power to stop the ticking of the clock, and I do not feel that groundswell. Not at all. When the American media turns its back on our own religions of tolerance and adores a religion of intolerance, times are upside down. The MSM says it’s all fine, trust The Prince of Grant Park, Chicago. But I have always preferred the admonition, “Put not your trust in princes.” Something is wrong.

What set him off isn’t the depressing fact that ‘the United States is beaming TV ads all over Pakistan apologizing for a derogatory Internet trailer for a nonexistent movie demeaning the being that Muslims call “The Prophet Mohammed,”‘ because I guess we’ve come to expect such craven behavior from this administration, by now. He’s referring to something he considers much worse:

Have you noticed that in the past few years, and especially in the past few weeks since the murder of the Ambassador and his guards and colleague in Benghazi (a city that Erwin Rommel loved and whose inhabitants he praised), whenever the New York Times refers to Mohammed, they always call him, without quotation marks, The Prophet Mohammed, as if everyone with any sense understands that OF COURSE Mohammed is The One True Prophet and that it’s just understood that Mohammed is The Prophet.

I see this in other news outlets and on TV, too. Sober-looking newsmen and newswomen mention Mohammed as The Prophet Mohammed. No ifs, ands or buts. I hear it on the BBC World Service, too.

Now, if Muslims want to believe that Mohammed is The Prophet, God bless them. Fine and dandy. If anyone wants to believe that, good luck to him or her. But why does our mainstream media here in the USA, an overwhelmingly Christian country, refer to Islam’s prophet as “The Prophet”?

Have you ever seen any major newspaper here in the USA refer to Jesus Christ as “The Son of God, God Incarnate, The Lord Jesus Christ”? Can you imagine the New York Times running a story about a crucifix resting in urine at an “art gallery” as an offense against “The Lord Jesus, Son of God”? Can you imagine any large newspaper in this country running a story about the Pope and referring to him as “The Holy Father, The Bridge Between Heaven and Earth”? Or about Mary, as “Holy Mary, Mother of God”? It would never happen.

Yep. Something is wrong.

How about this one via Creeping Sharia:

Submitting troops to sharia law? Bring them home. via Paul Sperry: The Pentagon is blaming US troops for ‘friendly fire’ attacks that have killed dozens of Americans, ordering sensitivity training about Islam –

Afghan security forces, our supposed allies, are slaughtering American troops. Thirty-three soldiers have been killed by “green on blue” attacks this year alone. The situation is so bad that the training of Afghan forces has been temporarily suspended.

How has the Pentagon responded?

By blaming our troops.

Top officials believe culturally offensive behavior is the motivation behind the killings, so it’s stepped up Islamic sensitivity training for our troops.

If you don’t want to be shot in the back by your Afghan training partners, the Pentagon advises, don’t offend their religious sensibilities. Don’t kick your feet up on a table, for instance, and never ask to see a picture of their wives and kids. “There’s a percentage [of attacks] which are cultural affronts,” Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said in a recent interview.

In the past three years, uniformed Afghans have murdered at least 97 US and NATO troops.

Hit the link to see a list of other “cultural affronts” our troops are being ordered to refrain from out of “sensitivity” to people who would kill over them.

Something JUST AIN’T RIGHT, there.

And today, after the secretary-general warned Ahmadinejad of “potentially harmful consequences of his inflammatory rhetoric”, the Iranian president told reporters in New York that Israel has “no roots” in Middle East history.

He called the country a “historical phase” that has only been “occupying the land” for about 60 or 70 years — as opposed to Iran, a nation with thousands of years of history, he said.

He also claimed Iran doesn’t take Israel’s threats of a military strike against its nuclear facilities seriously.

“We did not take [Israel] into account,” Ahmadinejad said. “They represent a small disturbance that will be eliminated in the future.”

Israel’s UN envoy walked out of the UN assembly, Monday, after Ahmadinejad began speaking about the ‘rule of law’.

“There is no law and no justice,” Prosor said, objecting to the fact that Ahmadinejad was allowed to speak at the forum. “The leader of an outlaw country that systematically violates the fundamental principles of the rule of law has no place here.”

“It’s a shame and a disgrace that someone like [Ahmadinejad] was given a voice on such an important issue,” the envoy added. “Allowing Ahmadinejad to give a UN speech on an issue like the rule of law is like appointing a pyromaniac as a fire commissioner.”

Prosor’s legal team followed him out of the UN hall.

Once upon a time the United States’ UN envoy would have joined them, as they always have in the past. But not this time.

A US Foreign Policy Expert  told Shep Smith today, “Israelis Really Don’t Think We’re On Their Side.”

Echoing Ahmadinejad, Obama called Israeli concern over Iran’s genocidal nuclear program “noise”

Nice. Top State Department Official Emails Reporter to Tell Him to “F**k Off”

Something is very very wrong.

  1. “Put not your trust in princes.” Good reading the whole chapters

    Matthew 24:

    3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
    4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.

    Matthew 25:

    31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left


  2. Just once I’d love to see some of these elected officials really call a spade a spade when it comes to these jihad bastids. Instead of bending over and grabbing their ankles and groveling on some apology tour, while trying to appeasing these azzholes.

    In their world it is taken as a sign of weakness and it only promotes more brazen attacks on us. In fact the only thing these animals understand is overwhelming, decisive, total force. It must really come easy to these politicians [who have never had more than a paper cut] to issue ROE and ridiculous orders, like disarming the Embassy Guards who are there to protect both Life and Property. And just like the brave SEALS [who weren’t part of the Embassy Security Force] in Benghazi but were willing to lay their lives on the line.

    Just once, I’d like to see a elected official say what really needs to be said, with no beating around the bush. Some version of this would be a excellent start. . . . .


  3. I know it’s important to get Obhammud out of the Peoples’ House, and it’s beyond belief that the current administration would not only throw Israel under the bus but supply the bus to boot, but who in their right mind supposes Mr. Romney will be willing to back an attack by Israel on Iran? Or be willing to stand up to the conniving dogs that rule Saudi Arabia and demand that country stop teaching terrorism against our country? Or be willing to demand the U.N. vacate the premises in NYC and find some other sucker spot in the world where they can hold their anti-American rallies daily>

    Nah, the Republicans are only willing to take us over that socialist tyranny cliff a little slower, not back us away from the cliff and become a world leader for truth and justice again.

  5. Carlos,

    Will just have to wait and see, what happens here. I just wish we could recall this guy (Mitt Romney)

    “Romney to Address Clinton Global Initiative

    “. Appearing with Bill Clinton at a Bill Clinton forum is an absolute disgrace. Why help rehabilitate the reputation of one of the most morally corrupt presidents in history? Clinton brought discussions of oral sex into America’s homes, increasing the moral toxic waste that eats away at our nation.”

  6. I want to see a new Fatwa Doctrine. When a cleric issues a Fatwa or bounty on an American for speech, writing or film, he has officially declared war and is no longer a non combatant, he is a military leader and therefore a legitimate target. Fatwa and drone the jerks. No more nice America. I am tired of playing nice with barbaric throwbacks to the 7th century… Too bad the Crusaders didn’t do a better job!

  8. Something is indeed wrong. Not a political problem, although what we have representing us as president and in the Senate right now is disgusting to me. Just go to your local Wal Mart and look around, ask yourselves: is this what the founding fathers envisioned ? There are no spiritual values anymore, religion has been crucified. Godless. All about me, me, me. A human life means nothing. No values at all anymore. Drug addiction, alcoholism running rampant. We don’t even love ourselves anymore. Being self sufficient is looked at as strange. What a great society we’ve created – how many laws do we need to live by ? How many rules and regulations ? My first thought is to disband the Congress for a few years, give them a vacation. I really like Mitt Romney, I will vote for the man. But it won’t change a thing. We have an educational system which creates people who can’t add or subtract, don’t know who is running for office, don’t know basic grammar (including myself sometimes when writing in a hurry). But they sure are smart. Just rambling here, but the point is that it won’t change.
    Until we realize that “rights” and “privileges” are two different things, and responsibility has to come with both. I keep thinking back to the housing boom days – watching many around me getting rich flipping houses, refinancing (and cashing in), etc. etc. And then I think of those who we rightfully blame – the Chris Dodds, Barney Franks, those in Congress who supported this bubble. The Bill Clinton’s of course…. but then I think… wait… all those people who refinanced, cashed in, and ended up losing everything, was there really a gun placed at their heads while signing the documents ? No. Just greed. More stuff, big screen TV’s. Had to have it. Americans (I include myself here) are the dumbest, laziest people on the face of the Earth. James Madison would be rolling in his grave at what he helped create so long ago………
