Islamists Demand Australian Senator ‘Introduce Sharia Law’ or Be Beheaded

Dr. Phyllis Chesler

"Yesterday, terrorists threatened to “behead” Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie if she did not help “introduce sharia law in Australia.” 

"To her credit, Lambie had recently called for the introduction of the death penalty for terrorists and had been quoted as saying: “If you don’t like our Australian law… then pack your bags and… leave. We will never bow down to sharia law.”

"The police do not yet know whether this death threat was sent by Jihadists or by opponents of a planned mosque.
 "Australia is part of the core group coalition against ISIS, which consists of the United States, Britain, France, Canada, Turkey, Italy, Poland, and Denmark.
"And here’s the history in Australia — a history you might think left Australia alone, but no.
"Jihad has been building for years in Australia. In 1998, a Sydney police station was shot at by four Arabs. In 2004, a Lebanese-Australian told a reporter that he “wanted to undertake a terror attack in Sydney in the name of Islam.”
"According to Australian terrorism researcher Andrew Zammitt, in 2003, thirteen Melbourne men and nine Sydney men were arrested and charged with forming two different cells to prepare attacks. Eighteen were convicted. These arrests suggested that Australians had become “newly radicalized” post 9/11." . . .  Read the full article here.

Clinton Stumbles on $675K Wall Street Question

Political Cartoons by Ken Catalino

'That's What They Offered': Clinton Stumbles on $675K Wall Street Question

Hillary Clinton has a simple explanation for why she accepted $675,000 from Goldman Sachs to give three speeches after she was secretary of state.
Better watch out when you confront Hillary, though, because you might get hurt as happened to this Secret Service agent in 2003! 
Angry Hillary threw book at Secret Service agent
"In a fit of rage, former first lady Hillary Clinton threw a book at a Secret Service agent, hitting him in the back as he was driving her here in a limousine during the 1996 campaign, former Secret Service officers and agents tell WorldNetDaily.

"She accused the plainclothes agent of "eavesdropping" on her conversation with another passenger in the back seat of the limo, the agents say. The missile she hurled was a painful message for him to mind his own business.

"The book hit him in the back, and it wasn't lobbed – she was angry," said a retired uniformed Secret Service officer familiar with the incident." . . .

"Another retired Secret Service veteran, a plainclothes agent assigned to Clinton's security detail, corroborated the book-throwing account. "Yeah, it's true," he said, without elaborating.
. . .
A Washington Metro Police detective also recalled hearing of the incident at the time, adding that the former first lady "was pretty sh--ty to the Secret Service guys.' "

Democratic donor contacts Biden allies about possible run

Yahoo, via Drudge  "A prominent Democratic donor worried about the party's chances of winning the presidency emailed dozens of fans of Vice President Joe Biden on Friday, urging them to remain prepared to donate if Biden jumps into the race.
"The donor, Bill Bartmann, cited new polling showing Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont nearly tied with the Hillary Clinton, eroding the 30-point lead the former secretary of state held at the end of last year. Bartmann and other party insiders are concerned that Sanders, a self-proclaimed Democratic socialist, is too far to the left to win against a Republican in the Nov. 8 presidential election.
" 'We cannot afford to lose the White House," Bartmann wrote in the email, seen by Reuters.
"The email drew a string of affirmative responses, also seen by Reuters.
"Biden announced in October that he would not seek the presidency, despite support from a group of backers under the name "Draft Biden 2016." But whispers have continued among some donors who hope that Biden could be convinced to run after all should Clinton’s campaign prove fruitless." . . .
This Biden?   

 This Joe?  Joe Biden plagiarised Neil Kinnock speech  "What's in a quote? For Joe Biden, his plagiarisation of a speech delivered by Neil Kinnock, then Labour leader, helped put pay to his own campaign to win the Democrats' presidential nomination more than 20 years ago."
"I exaggerate when I'm angry, but I've never gone around telling people things that aren't true about me." Joe Biden

How the Finns deal with rapists

Yes, the government of Finland . . . truly believes that, essentially, a pair of mittens, a handbag and a stern look will stop most rapists.
. . . "If you hadn’t seen it, you wouldn’t have believed it.  That was an entirely serious video played on television and created by the Finnish government in order to reduce the number of rapes committed by Muslim invaders." . . .

I don’t like Bernie because his “Medicare For All” plan is terrible for America’s health and economy

"If you doubt me about the benefits of competition, dig into your desk drawer and drag out one of your flash drives.  Take a good look at that useful little thing and think about this:  On Amazon today, you can get ten 8 GB flash drives for $44.00 — or $4.40 per flash drive.  What you probably don’t know if you’re under 35 is that, when flash drives first came out in the 1990s, their storage ability was measured by megabytes, not gigabytes, and their cost was in the hundreds of dollars.  What brought quality up and costs down was competition, unimpeded by government mandates and other market perversions."
Bookworm Room  "My college-age child introduced me to a website called I Like Bernie, But…which is particularly appealing to young voters. The website offers short answers to concerns pro-Bernie voters might still be harboring about his policies and his ability to win. With few exceptions, these answers are just plain wrong. You can see my rebuttals at a website I set up as a counterweight (I Don’t Like Bernie, Because…). I’ve republished those same articles here, at my own blog, addressing Bernie’s socialismhis tax plans, and his Second Amendment stance. Today I’m tackling everything that’s wrong with Bernie’s plan to socialize American medicine." . . .
This writer's article discusses these points:
I.  What Bernie promises. . . 
II. America cannot afford Bernie’s plan . . .
III. Progressive claims to the contrary, European health care not the wonderful thing that you think it is. . . 

Perpetual victimhood

Beware the Perpetual Victim’s Wrath

perpetual victim

Even back in 2008, Hillary is The Victim!  . . . " And Hillary, as strong as she is, wins as a victim. That is the trajectory of her career. I am a victim. Punch. So why are women whining and the identifying with being the victim again?" . . . 

Hillary Clinton is no victim  " . . .Clinton's looped victim audio track has been playing for 20-plus years. She was a victim of her husband's philandering. She was a victim of a vast right-wing conspiracy. And most recently, in a one-on one interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, she claimed that she and Bill were "dead broke" when they left the White House. Victim. Victim. Victim. You know what a victim is? It's someone who tells a story that their lives are awful as a way to get attention and adoration. " . . .
What makes a person a perpetual victim?   "Everyone feels sorry for people who have been through terrible experiences not of their own making. But most of those who have had bad things happen to them usually heal and go on with their lives, as hard as it may be. Others spend their time perpetuating their victimhood, finding hurtful intentions in others and constantly asking for sympathy. What do you know about these so-called eternal or professional victims? Take this quiz and see." . . .
Perpetual Victims Syndrome  "Check this out.
"When police in London arrest muslims for openly inciting violence and murder, it gets put in the category called "Islamophobia" on The Muslim News website. Anything to be portrayed as the victim....."

"Even as the first lady," she bemoaned, "not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf."
. . . "On David Letterman's show in 2012, the haute-couture-clad first lady recounted the same "incognito" Target visit to demonstrate her just-like-you bona fides. She chuckled as she shared how the shopper asked: "Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?" As the audience laughed with delight and Mrs. Obama grinned from ear to ear, she told Letterman: "I reached up, 'cause she was short, and I reached up, pulled it down — she said, 'Well, you didn't have to make it look so easy.' That was my interaction. I felt so good.' " . . .

Denzel vs. Michelle – Optimism vs. Victimhood  
michelle obama"I was driving the other day and listening to  Michelle Obama’s race obsessed commencement address at Tuskegee University founded by civil rights leader, Booker T. Washington, on Sean Hannity’s radio program.  By the time I got to my destination, I wanted to grab the closest razor and slit my wrists. When I got home, I read her entire speech and was stunned there were no reports of mass suicide by the graduates at the University over the weekend.
"What I heard was a speech that was negative, depressive and bleak and painted a hopeless future for these young people which gave them no opportunity other than to declare themselves victims of a continuing oppressive and racist society.
Denzel Washington"In stark contrast, I came across Denzel Washington’s commencement speech at Dillard University over the weekend.  It was uplifting and full of optimism.  He told the graduates to put God first in everything they do and to thank Him for grace, understanding, wisdom, their parents, love, kindness and humility.  He talked about having dreams but also setting life goals, annual goals, monthly goals, and even daily goals.  He stressed that goals are met through discipline and consistency and that hard work is what successful people do." . . .  Full article

Dr. Phyllis Chesler: "Hijab in the US navy; What the Iranians put on the head of the one female among the captured sailors says it all."

Prof. Phyllis Chesler  . . . "The fact that President Obama failed to mention that his sailors were in captivity even as he addressed the nation in his last State of the Union speech--is beyond shameful but alas, is merely more of the same.

"The fact that Secretary of State John Kerry would have us believe that his conversations with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif actually played a significant role in Iran's decision to release the sailors unharmed and quickly--is as shameless as everything else--such as the fact that the American administration has gone along with the pretense that the sailors had either done something "wrong," or that their boat had somehow mis-functioned.

"Then, there is at least one other thing.

"Dr. Walid Phares, on Facebook, called my attention to the fact that the single American female sailor in the photos is....wearing hijab. 

"What? Is that regulation American Navy attire for women? 

"Is this American sailor perhaps a religious Muslim?

"No. Iran is demonstrating that it is prepared to enforce its version of Shariah law, even upon infidels, when it has the power to do so. 

"America, like other Western countries, including Israel, has been busily integrating women into a previously all-male military. 
 . . .

King Obama is making no principled moves, none at all.

"The writer, a Shillman-Ginsburg Fellow at the Middle East Forum and recipient of the 2013 National Jewish Book Award, is the author of sixteen books, including Women and Madness, Woman's Inhumanity to Woman, and The New Anti-Semitism. She has written four studies about honor killing, Her latest books are An American Bride in Kabul, (Palgrave Macmillan) and Living History: On The Front Lines for Israel and the Jews.Professor Chesler may be reached at her website www.phyllis-chesler.com"

Iran HUMILIATES American Sailors — And Obama Administration THANKS Them For It!  . . . "The IRG told a different story. They said that the Americans were “snooping,” and Iran’s army chief said that the seizure of the boats was a rebuke to Congress. “This incident in the Persian Gulf, which probably will not be the American forces’ last mistake in the region, should be a lesson to troublemakers in the US Congress,”said Major General Hassan Firouzabadi. And according to Reuters, Biden was fibbing – the Iranians did in fact ask for an apology, with Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif leading the way.
They then released these photos:

"In his State of the Union address, Obama ignored the whole incident, naturally – even as he promised that he would see the Iranian deal through to the end. And he will, even if he has to become Iran’s PR machine to do it, at the expense of our own military men and women."

‘I’m Just Asking a Question’: Rush Limbaugh Reveals What He’s ‘Always Wondered’ About Obama

Admiration for Rev. Wright, perhaps?

The Blaze  "Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh asked aloud on his radio program Thursday why President Barack Obama made the choice to become a Christian.
"Limbaugh, referencing the president’s recent trip to a Baltimore mosque this week, argued Obama is “constantly talking [Islam] up.”
“ 'President Obama is routinely defending it, talking it up, promoting it,” Limbaugh contended, according to anonline transcript posted to his official website.
“He talks about how awesome Islam is all the time, one of the most beautiful sounds he’s ever heard is the morning call to prayer in an Islamic country,” the radio show host added. “He says it’s the most peaceful, most giving religion out there, that the mosque called a prayer one of the most beautiful sounds in the world. And, at the same time, he’s out there, and look what he says about Christians. He says he is one. Look, he talks about ‘em as bitter clingers and they hold on to their guns when they’re nervous.”
"Limbaugh then revealed his question.
“ 'My question is, given all this, why did he choose to become a Christian? I’ve always wondered that,” he told his audience. “He’s such a defender and promoter of Islam, and, on the other hand, he and his party are constantly denigrating Christians. I don’t care what the issue is, whether it’s guns, whether it’s gay marriage, any cultural or social issue, or the bitter clinger comments. I’ve always wondered about this.”
"The radio host argued he was “not saying anything.”
“ 'I’m just asking a question,” he insisted." . . .

. . . "How did he end up choosing Reverend Wright's church, given his public statements on all this? " . . .

What if GOP Candidates escorted Carly Fiorina on to the debate stage?

Kemberlee Kaye at Legal Insurrection  "Carly gets a bum deal"

Carly Fiorina ISIS plan

"Thursday night, ABC announced the lineup for tomorrow’s New Hampshire debate. Carly Fiorina was left off the roster.

"To put it politely — Carly got royally screwed.

"For the first time this primary season there will be no undercard debate, leaving Fiorina and Gilmore the only candidates unable to participate in the network’s pre-New Hampshire primary debate.

"Fiorina placed higher in the Iowa Caucus than two other approved debate contenders — Governors Chris Christie and John Kasich. . . .

Bill Clinton: If Hillary Is Elected She Will Get Between One And Three Supreme Court Appointments…

Weasel Zippers
Bill SC

With us being just several weeks away now from South Carolina’s Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton wasn’t in town Wednesday, but her husband was.
The former president took the stage a little early Wednesday night and spoke for about thirty minutes to the supportive crowd. He said Hillary Clinton, if elected, would practice inclusive politics.
“She is clearly the best qualified person to be president I have ever had the chance to vote for and ask you to vote for.”
The last time President Bill Clinton was reportedly in Columbia was in 2012 when he delivered a commencement speech at Columbia College. It was his first trip to Allen University since 2000. And the 42nd president, naturally, had nothing but praise for his wife, who’s battling for the Democratic nomination for president.
Clinton narrowly won the Iowa Caucus on Monday but her chances in New Hampshire are much slimmer with her challenger, Senator Bernie Sanders, leading in the polls.
Political experts say that’s why South Carolina will be important to her.
“One of the reasons you ought to vote for Hillary is the next president’s going to get between one and three appointments to the United States Supreme Court, and we can change a lot of that.” . . .

Did you know there was a Hillary-Bernie debate last night?

"The debate is the last before Tuesday’s first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary, and Sanders holds a big lead in polls in the state."  The article below.

Clinton, Sanders Get Heated During Democratic Debate   . . . "In her opening statement, the former secretary of state attacked Sanders, saying she is “not making promises that I cannot keep” and that his numbers “just don’t add up.”
"She said she doesn’t want to “plunge” the nation into another contentious debate over health care and thinks college should be affordable, not free.
"Sanders countered that Clinton was willing to settle for less than Americans deserve." . . . I appreciate her point of view here.
Jerusalem Post: Clinton goes on attack against Sanders in combative presidential debate  . . . "She also disputed the establishment label, saying it was "quite amusing" to accuse "a woman, running to be the first woman president, as the establishment.' " . . . Victimhood again?

"Gee, I wonder why anyone would think that?
"Via NY Post:
In by far their most personal exchange of the campaign, Hillary Clinton lashed out during Thursday night’s Democratic debate at what she called Bernie Sanders’ “innuendo” and “insinuation” that her Wall Street speaking fees and donations mean she’s bought.
“I think it’s time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out,” Clinton said.
Some in the audience at the University of New Hampshire in Durham booed at the attack. Sanders seemed taken aback, saying, “Ooohh, c’mon.” . . .
