The 2012 Voting Dilema

The all-important election of 2012 is upon us. But, who can rational, realistic, scientific people vote for? The Republican party has a whole bunch of “delusional” (as Jesse Ventura described them) people who believe in an imaginary friend who told them to run for office, or vote for this or that, or whatever. The Democrats have a bunch of candidates that are Communists, Socialists, or Marxists, who, like Obama, have their hearts set on destroying America and the entirety of Western civilization. They would do whatever it takes to destroy America, as the policies of Barack Obama have verified.

There is a real dilemma facing sane, rational Americans who do not want delusional people who have imaginary friends with their finger on the nuclear button being President. We know that the thug-in-chief who rules Iran believes in the 12th Imam, the Mahdi. He believes that when Iran finally brings about Armageddon, the Mahdi, who, they claim,  has been hiding at the bottom of a well in Qom for over 1100 years, will come out of that well to lead Shia Muslims to take over the world and to bring about a paradise where the whole population of the world will be Shia  Muslims living in peace and harmony. He really believes this ridiculous nonsense. In fact, every time there is a major government decision, he, or one of his personal assistants, takes a letter that explains the situation to the well in Qom and drops it into the well so that the Mahdi can be kept informed. You may think this is crazy (unless you are a 12ther Shia Muslim) but how is this any different from another man believing that God talked to him, or her, and told them to do whatever? (Charles Manson said similar things, as did many people who murdered their children.) How is this any different from a grown person believing that a virgin gave birth or that a person arose from the dead after 3 days? How is this any different from a grown adult believing in Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny? (Especially since the whole half-man-half-god, virgin or strange birth at Christmas and resurrection from death at Easter, was an essential part of ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Indian mythology, encompassing such “gods” as Hercules, Osiris, Krishna, Mithras, Odysseus, and others? For a great overview on the mythology that Christianity is based upon, read “The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors”).

The idea that someone who believes such incredibly stupid, idiotic and childish myths, lies, and legends could have his finger on the nuclear button is terrifying. Already we have had two religiously moronic Presidents by the name of George Bush (I and II). One said that an atheist should not be allowed to be a citizen of the United States and two put into law the stem cell research ban. This idiocy will eventually mean that not only will George Bush II be responsible for more deaths than Hitler, Stalin, and Mao Zedong combined, but he will also be responsible for the loss of an entire generation of stem cell researchers, since any American who might have wanted to go into that field had to either give up their dream and do something else or they had to learn a new language and move to South Korea or some other country with a more scientifically literate leadership. As for George Bush I, he would not have allowed people like Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and others to have participated in government, let alone the founding of this nation, since they were all atheists by their own admission or by any reasonable standard. In fact, many of the very founders of this country beyond those mentioned above were, in fact, atheists, contrary to what the morons who keep talking about a “Christian nation” would have you believe. In fact, the Senate unanimously ratified the 1797 Treat of Tripoli that explicitly stated that the United States is not  a Christian nation.  “As the government of the United States of America is NOT IN ANY SENSE FOUNDED ON THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION, …as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen…”

While Romney may not be a Christian in the mind of the Religious Right, he belongs to the Mormon religion. This is a religion that was clearly invented by a man much like Mohammad – a corrupt, conniving, womanizing, lier-and it has been thoroughly debunked by modern science. How anyone who belongs to it can be given any credibility is hard to believe. But then very few Americans actually know what is in the Book of Mormon. (Or, as Mark Twain, another well known atheist quipped, “If you took out all the ‘and it came to passes,’ they could call it the Pamphlet of Mormon.”) And this brings to mind another ludicrous “religion”; Scientology. The only real difference between the nonsense in the Book of Mormon and the beliefs of the Scientologists is that L. Ron Hubbard, who invented Scientology, was very forthcoming when he said, about inventing a religion: “You don’t get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion.” (1) The differences between Christianity, Islam, Mormonism, and Scientology consist in the fact that while there almost certainly never was a Jesus Christ (and certainly not a person who was half-God, half-man, who arose from the dead), there almost certainly was the insane, epileptic, barbarian, misogynist, megalomaniac, pedophile named Mohammad who invented Islam and the conniving, con-man, womanizer named Joseph Smith who invented the Mormon religion, and the author L. Ron Hubbard who invented Scientology to improve his personal wealth.

Gingrich may be the smartest person in the room, but his religiosity is obnoxious and abhorrent. In a recent debate he kept harping on how an illegal alien should be accepted into the country if he belonged to a church! And, this from a guy whose personal life is so far from that of the teachings of the Bible that he served divorce papers on his first wife while she was dying in the hospital and cheated on his second wife with the woman who would become his third wife. I guess he converted to Catholicism because he figured if it was good enough for pedophile priests and mafia gangsters, who only had to say a few “Hail Mary’s” or whatever to be forgiven for whatever horrendous crimes they had committed, it was good enough for him.

I used to like Ron Paul because he gets it as far as the Fed is concerned and the general corruption of politicians by big business and lobbyists and he was the Libertarian candidate for a couple of elections. But, the Libertarians believe that abortion is between a woman and her doctor and it is not the business of government. In recent debates, I have heard him state that he believed that states, at least, could outlaw abortion. While he used to say that you could not codify abortion to be illegal, his new stand is obviously a change, and I hope that the Libertarian party does not consider him to be their candidate after he gets washed out from the Republican candidacy. Beyond this problem, while I agree that the United States should terminate its endless policy of interfering in the business of other countries and mind our own business, he clearly does not understand the problems posed by Islam. They don’t hate us because we are buying their oil, or have troops on their lands; they hate us because we are not Muslims. Period. Unless we come to worship Mohammad and his sock puppet Allah, they will hate us and do all that they can to destroy us.

Other problems abound. Romney forced all citizens in Massachusetts to purchase health insurance. This is clearly illegal. But, Obamacare is clearly based on Romneycare. Also, many of the candidates are in favor of “cap and tax”, a policy that would further bankrupt an already bankrupt Western world for a total non-problem called man-made “Global Warming.” This has been proven time and again to be nothing but a fraud and an attempt by the global elite, through the United Nations, to tax developed nations into third world status while doing nothing but enriching the global elite, the banksters and certain individuals.

So, the problem remains. Who can a sane and rational person vote for in 2012?

Talking About Extremist and Moderate Muslims Is Like Talking About Extremist and Moderate Nazis

OK folks, lets get over it! There is, as a famous Islamist said, no “moderate Islam. Islam is Islam”. I can hear the liberal morons screaming now: Islamophobe!!! Nobody in the main stream ever said that! You are quoting someone like Osama bin Laden or Ayman al-Zawahiri! Wrong! I am quoting the Islamist Prime Minister of a supposed NATO ally, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Ergogan! In fact, he went so far as to explain that the term “moderate Islam”, often used in the West, is “ugly”. About “moderate” Islam, he said: “These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”

So, there you have it from a Muslim head of state, and, unfortunately, a person who heads a nation that we stupidly allowed into NATO. Just think about it. Turkey is a nation that has been armed by the West with the latest weapons (like Pakistan), and it is a nation that will soon be going nuclear and yet it prefers to side with barbaric states like Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan rather than the United States and Western Europe!

And, talking about 7th century Hell holes, lets talk about Pakistan. They are now blocking the supply routes for our troops in Afghanistan. And, to make matters worse, we allowed them to get nuclear weapons, just as we allowed North Korea and Iran to get nuclear weapons. It is time to simply read them the riot act and to explain that we can do whatever we want in their country to defend our country because we have given them billions and billions of dollars and billions and billions of dollars worth of military equipment such as modern F-16 aircraft, etc. If they don’t want to accept our right to do what we want in their country to defend ourselves against Islam, then they have to accept the alternative, which we should impose on all nations. If you don’t clean up your act and join the 21st century, you will receive no more money, no more aid, and no more military equipment from us. Furthermore,  you will pay a devastation price if anyone from your country attacks our country.

If there is a major Muslim attack in the United States, within 12 hours the suspected country, or countries, whose people originated the attacks, or the countries who did, or probably did, aid the attackers, will be reduced to a radioactive glass parking lot. End of story. No discussion, no mercy. If a person from your country attacks the United States, your country and your people will simply cease to exist. So, you had better clean up your act! We’re tired of trying to do it for you and getting nothing but treachery, deceit, and obstructions related to everything we try to do, not to mention pissing away billions of dollars on your country which we can no longer afford to do.

If we had done this, as we proposed doing after 911, Pakistan and Afghanistan would already be gone, as would Iran (which has been the biggest danger to us since 1979). While that would only have eliminated a few hundred million Muslims, it would have dampened their insane expansionary and destructive spirits and much of the problem would now be gone.

The Western world must wake up to the existential threat Islam represents. They declared war on us in the 8th Century when they started their expansionist, supremacist agenda to take over the Middle East and most of Europe. Now they admittedly want to take over the world. It is time that we finally finished the Crusades that their barbaric actions necessitated about 1000 years ago and wipe them out. It is them or us. They tell us that all the time. We need to listen to what they say and take it seriously and do something about it to defend ourselves.

It really is them or us, and it must be Western Civilization that survives.

Arab Spring Should Be Renamed Arab Fall Because It Will Probably Lead To Muslim Nuclear Winter

I wrote a long time ago that the whole “Arab Spring” thing would end badly. While the main stream media was covering the riots and demonstrations with excitement and glee, it was clear to anyone who actually understood Islam and what was happening that what we were seeing was not something that the West should be cheering about. I wrote about how it was clear that Abdel Jalil, the self-proclaimed new leader of Libya, was clearly an Islamist. We now know that many of the people who are heading up the new government in Libya are past (and probably still) members of al Qaeda. We know that tens of thousands of shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles have been appropriated by al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations in Libya and are on their way to an airport near you. We now know that the new “constitutions” in Libya, Egypt, and Tunisia will enshrine Sharia, just like I predicted, thus making those countries no more friendly to the West and things like human rights and woman’s  rights than Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and, once we are gone, Iraq.

How could this have been allowed to happen in plain sight and under the noses of Western democracies? If I, a private citizen with very limited resources and no access to classified documents, memos, e-mails, or embassy documents, and no access to the power brokers of the world, could so clearly see what was going to happen months ahead of time, how come the people in power could not see what was going to happen and do something about it? I don’t know the answer, for sure, but I suspect it is political correctness and the inability of anyone in government, whether those at top or their minions in the CIA, FBI, and other agencies to speak out on the evils of Islam. After all, if an extensive report on the murder spree of Nidal Hasan could not even be allowed to mention Islam once, and Islam was clearly the cause of his murder spree, our government has been reduced to the three little monkeys: see no evil, speak no evil, and hear no evil. And Islam is evil.

But, now the damage has been done. And, while allowing these nations to become Islamic theocracies, like Iran, we have done nothing about the 800 pound gorilla in the room; Iran. Iran was behind much, if not all, of the problems related to Palestine and Israel through its control of terrorist groups like Hezbollah. There is strong evidence that 911 was planned in Iran. (1) Iran was clearly in on the deal as it assisted in the transit of many of the terrorists. Also, the same sources who told us that 911 was largely planned in Iran also told us that Iran already has nuclear weapons, and has had them for quite a long time. Additionally, they told us that one of the reasons we had such a hard time finding bin Laden and al-Zawahiri was because they were sometimes being sheltered and hosted in Iran after 911. That bit of information was initially officially scoffed at by US authorities, but now they admit that this information was true. How much of the other information was true? Judging by the fact that we have not done a thing about the biggest terrorist sponsor in the world, and the country at the heart of most of the problems in the Middle East and, especially, Iraq, our government must have known that Iran had nuclear weapons and that is why we were afraid to attack them. (Of course, that fear of attacking nuclear armed thugocracies like Iran and North Korea does nothing but justify and prove their rhetoric that they need nuclear weapons for their own safety against attack.) But, we are going to have to go to war with them, sooner or later. If we don’t start it, they will, on their terms and timetable. The sooner it happens, the fewer nuclear weapons Iran will have to use and, ultimately, the less deadly and destructive the eventual outcome will be.

And, the very fact that we allowed most of the Middle East to go Islamist (including Turkey) means that Israel will probably be forced to use nuclear weapons because that is probably the only way that they could win a war and defend themselves if the entire Middle East, including Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and Iran attack them at the same time, which is looking more and more likely every day. If they are threatened with extinction, which is Iran’s  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s wet dream, or even if they are threatened with substantial destruction, I would fully support their right–their necessity–of going nuclear. At some point, if enough forces are aligned against them because of the insanity of Islam, they must do what they must to survive.

So, how many nuclear weapons does Iran already have? My best estimate, for the last few years, has been 6 to 20. I came to this conclusion based on various information gleaned from various sources. Yossef Bodansky in his excellent book The High Cost of Peace   stated on page 77  that Iran bought two 40 kiloton nuclear warheads for their SCUD missiles in 1991. In 2005 it was reported in the Financial Times that China and Iran purchased 18 KH-55 nuclear tipped cruise missiles from Ukraine, with 12 going to Iran and 6 going to China. This was confirmed by Svyatoslav Piskun, Ukraine’s prosecutor-general. Although some people claimed that the warheads were not shipped with the missiles, what good is a missile without a warhead? Furthermore, later in 2005, Porter Goss,the director of the CIA at the time, told Turkish officials that Iran already had nuclear weapons, apparently referring to the 12 KH-55’s that they had purchased.  By the way, this warhead is a 200 kiloton warhead; not the little, bably warheads that we presume Iran and North Korea are producing, which are similar to the warheads that we used against Japan to end World War II. (10 to 20 kiloton warheads.)

Lt Col. Tony Shaffer, as part of “Able Danger” uncovered the 911 plot in early 2001. But, he was not listened to, and the inconvenient truth of Able Danger was covered up by the government. But, he also stated that Iran had two workable nuclear warheads according to an article in the Washington Times. That article also reports that Matthew Nasuti, during s State Department briefing in 2008, that it was “common knowledge” that Iran had nuclear weapons acquired from former Soviet republics. Other reports state that Iran purchased four 152 mm nuclear mortar shells.

Iran opened its heavy water nuclear reactor in the middle of 2006. This reactor, all by itself, can produce enough plutonium for 2 to 3 nuclear weapons per year. 2 to 3 per year times 5 years is 10 to 15 nuclear weapons, ignoring any that were bought, stolen, or produced from their highly enriched uranium centrifuge cascades. This is a fact that is very seldom reported. Combine this fact with the fact that North Korea’s nuclear program is based, primarily, on Plutonium based weapons, rather than highly enriched Uranium weapons, and the fact that Iran’s nuclear program is intimately entwined with North Korea’s nuclear program, and you see how their often forgotten heavy water research reactor, alone, could have produced over a dozen nuclear weapons.

Finally, you have the simple fact that Iran has been working on a nuclear weapon since the early 1980’s. Yes, they are Muslims, but they are also Persians, unlike most Muslims. Thus, they tend to be more intelligent and better educated. In fact, much of what I have read indicates that the vast majority of Iranians, unlike the vast majority of Arabs, do not want to be bound by Sharia law, and they often embrace the secularism of the West. We missed a huge opportunity in 2009 when the Iranian people rose up to protest the forged election victory of Madman Ahmadimwit, my preferred name for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. If we had stepped in and given massive support to the protesters, perhaps Iran would now be a productive member of the world community, instead of being an international pariah, slated for annihilation when they finally unleash their nuclear arsenal.

I would not go so far as to say that the United States is a paper tiger. But, the United States is extremely vulnerable. It is vulnerable because of its dependence on electricity. And, all of our enemies, from China to Russia to North Korea to Iran understand that vulnerability. As I pointed our in an earlier article, all that an enemy has to do to completely destroy the United States is to destroy its power grid. This could be done through an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) attack, or a cyber attack that destroyed the power grid. Both techniques are totally feasible. We saw in the last few weeks how a hacker took over control of the water system in Illinois. That hacker could have shut down water to that area if he wanted to. In the same way, hackers could take control of the power grid and destroy transformers that are both essential to the grid and for which we have no replacements due to the stupidity of our “leaders”. The simple fact that our “leaders” have not made provisions to stock a supply of the essential transformers that could prevent a natural (ie solar storm) or unnatural (ie EMP attack) from taking out our power grid for 12 to 24 months (or more) is a crime. The citizens of the United States need to demand an explanation! Why, when the cost is only a few hundred millions of dollars, do we not stock the necessary transformers to replace essential transformers that could be taken out by mother nature or terrorists?

It is sad to see what has happened to the United States. Our enemies are now well equipped to destroy us through a cyber or EMP attack. While we might know who attaked us, I doubt if we would be willing to retaliate. And, even if we did retaliate, the country that we retaliated against would not be harmed, much, since they don’t rely on electricity as much as we do. While we could certainly kill most of their citizens, we would be condemned in the United Nations for “over reacting!”, as if killing everyone associated with a government that wiped out your civilization would be an over-reaction.

It is a crime that we did not take out Iran years ago. This is a crime that lays at Jimmy Carter’s feet, just like the crime of loosing the Viet Nam war lays at the feet of traitors such as Henry Kissenger (who knowingly started the war on the false premise of an attack by North Vietnam in the Gulf of Tonkin incident.) One can only hope that someone takes out the nuclear facilities of both North Korea and Iran before it is too late.
