Ground Control to President Obama

Logo National Review Online WeekendWe don’t need attempts at soaring rhetoric in a time of earthbound problems.

Round about this time in the election cycle, a presidential challenger finds himself on the stump and posing a simple test to voters: “Ask yourself — are you better off now than you were four years ago?”

But, in fact, you don’t need to ask yourself, because the Federal Reserve Board’s Survey of Consumer Finances has done it for you. Between 2007 and 2010, Americans’ median net worth fell 38.8 percent — or from $126,400 per family to $77,300 per family. Oh, dear. As I mentioned a few months ago, when readers asked me to recommend countries they could flee to, most of the countries worth fleeing to Americans can no longer afford to live in.

Mark Steyn – 10 June 2012

The trick to monarchy is not queening it. In The Radetzky March, Joseph Roth’s great novel of the Habsburg twilight, the Emperor Franz Joseph has it down to a tee:

‘At times he feigned ignorance and was delighted when someone gave him a longwinded explanation about things he knew thoroughly… He was delighted at their vanity in proving to themselves that they were smarter than he …for it does not behoove an emperor to be as smart as his advisers.’

At dinner in Melbourne and Sydney, as in Toronto and Montreal, I have sat next to clever, dazzling politicians — the coming men of the coming republic — mimicking Her Majesty’s absurd voice and mocking her dreary stolidity. ‘If people smirked behind his back, he pretended not to know about it,’ wrote Roth of Franz Joseph. ‘It does not behoove an emperor to compete with wags and sophisticates.’ And a year or three later the coming men have come and gone, and there’s the Queen, opening a hospital, touring a school.

Mark Steyn om Europas “far right”

Sommetider bliver jeg lidt træt af amerikanernes opfattelse af “the welfare state”. Pavlovs hunde kunne ikke have gjort det bedre. Europa har nogle og 50 selvstændige lande og endnu flere velfærdssystemer. De evindelige generaliseringer er irriterende. Men som lovet - Steyn:

Give-and-Take

Mark Steyn – June 5, 2012

Some years ago in this space, I cited a famous Gerald Ford line he liked to use when trying to ingratiate himself with conservative audiences: “A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take away everything you have.” And I posited an alternative thesis: A government big enough to give you everything you want isn’t big enough to get you to give any of it back.

Logo SteynOnline

That’s what the political class of Europe’s cradle-to-grave welfare states have spent the last three years doing: trying to persuade their electorates to give some of it back. Not a lot, just a bit. In France, President Sarkozy raised the retirement age from 60 to 62. French life expectancy is 80.7, so you still get to enjoy a quarter of your entire human existence as one long holiday weekend. In Greece, where those in officially designated “hazardous” professions such as hairdressing and TV-announcing get to retire at 50, the government raised the possibility of ending the agreeable arrangement by which public-sector employees receive 14 monthly paychecks per annum.[...]

Video, præsident Obama og den famøse fødselsattest

Den hidsige debat om præsidentens fødested er blusset op nu igen. Arizona truer med ikke at ville sætte Barak Obama på stemmesedlen, hvis ikke der fremlægges ordentlig dokumentation. Præsidenten lyver desuden. Manden har både oplyst, at han er født i Kenya og at han er født på Hawaii. Begge dele kan jo ikke være rigtige:

Cold Case Posse seeks to crack mystery of Obama’s birth 50 years ago

In a major development in his probe of Barack Obama’s eligibility for Arizona’s 2012 presidential ballot, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has dispatched his lead Cold Case Posse investigator and a deputy detective to Hawaii.

The mission to Obama’s purported birthplace comes as the Hawaii Department of Health continues to resist efforts by Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett to verify that the Honolulu agency has a valid birth certificate on file for Obama.

Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

The booklet, which was distributed to “business colleagues” in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.

Who Is Barack Obama? The Question that Won’t Go Away

May 19, 2012 – by Roger Kimball

So now Chris Matthews isn’t the only one experiencing a little thrill when he thinks about Barack (omit middle name) Obama. The recent revelation that from the early 1990s until the day before yesterday—or, to be more accurate, until Obama made his decision to run for president—a biographical pamphlet circulated by his literary agents described him as having been “born in Kenya” has been setting the world of Twitter atwitter.

What should we think about that? An agency spokesman who claims to have been responsible for the “born in Kenya” wheeze has publicly said that it was a mistake, a typographical error, a slip of the pen that just went “unchecked” for, um, sixteen-seventeen years. I can understand that. She meant to write “Hawaii” and wrote “Kenya” instead. Could happen to anyone. They look and sound enough alike, don’t they,  that no one noticed. You meant to write “there” and you wrote “their” instead. You meant to write “cup” and you wrote “floccinaucinihilipilification” instead. No one—no one at the literary agency, not the author himself—could be expected to notice. You understand that, right?

The Great Barry

Self-invention on shifting postmodern sands.

By Mark Steyn – May 19, 2012

It used to be a lot simpler. As E. C. Bentley deftly summarized it in 1905:

Geography is about maps But Biography is about chaps.

But that was then, and now Biography is also about maps. For example, have you ever thought it would be way cooler to have been born in colonial Kenya?

Whoa, that sounds like crazy Birther talk; don’t go there! But Breitbart News did, and it turns out that the earliest recorded example of Birtherism is from the president’s own literary agent, way back in 1991, in the official bio of her exciting new author: “Barack Obama, the first African-American president of The Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

Like Warren, Obama Claims Cherokee Ancestry – But Offers No Proof

by Michael Patrick Leahy  – May 22, 2012

President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren have more in common than just their liberal political ideology, Harvard Law pedigree, and Democratic Party affiliation. Both claim Cherokee ancestry, and neither can prove it.

Ms. Warren’s claims are current and well known, but President Obama’s claims were made back in 1995, when his memoir, Dreams from My Father, was published. On pages 12 and 13 of the 2004 paperback edition, the President unequivocally asserts his Cherokee ancestry:

Alan Keyes rightly calls Obama a radical communist

Alan Keyes was a featured speaker at a fundraiser for the Triple A Crisis Pregnancy Center in Hastings, Nebraska, on February 19, 2009, where a reporter from KHAS-TV interviewed him about his thoughts on Obama. With conviction, Alan firmly stated that Obama is a radical communist (which he is) and a usurper (which he has done since he hasn’t produced an original birth certificate). And that Obama supports infanticide–the killing of babies born alive after botched abortions.

The story was later picked up by Keith Olberman of MSNBC who spent time on the show calling Alan Keyes names in order to diminish the importance of what Alan said. Alan must have hit a nerve. Go Alan!

Mark Steyn om Geert Wilders

Steyn har skrevet forordet til Wilders’ nye bog:

The Spirit of Geert Wilders

By Mark Steyn – May 14, 2012

A foreword to Wilders’ Marked for Death.

Logo National Review Online Banner 420

When I was asked to write a foreword to Geert Wilders’ new book, my first reaction, to be honest, was to pass. Mr. Wilders lives under 24/7 armed guard because significant numbers of motivated people wish to kill him, and it seemed to me, as someone who’s attracted more than enough homicidal attention over the years, that sharing space in these pages was likely to lead to an uptick in my own death threats. Who needs it? Why not just plead too crowded a schedule and suggest the author try elsewhere? I would imagine Geert Wilders gets quite a lot of this.

And then I took a stroll in the woods, and felt vaguely ashamed at the ease with which I was willing to hand a small victory to his enemies. After I saw off the Islamic enforcers in my own country, their frontman crowed to The Canadian Arab News that, even though the Canadian Islamic Congress had struck out in three different jurisdictions in their attempt to criminalize my writing about Islam, the lawsuits had cost my magazine (he boasted) two million bucks, and thereby “attained our strategic objective — to increase the cost of publishing anti-Islamic material.” In the Netherlands, Mr. Wilders’ foes, whether murderous jihadists or the multicultural establishment, share the same “strategic objective” — to increase the cost of associating with him beyond that which most people are willing to bear. It is not easy to be Geert Wilders. He has spent almost a decade in a strange, claustrophobic, transient, and tenuous existence little different from kidnap victims or, in his words, a political prisoner. He is under round-the-clock guard because of explicit threats to murder him by Muslim extremists.

It is a coy sentiment, because someone would surely give him that job.

Two cheers for Danish justice

Melanie Phillips – 22 April 2012

In the event, Denmark pulled back from the brink. Following my piece here a few days ago about the witch-hunt against the President of the Danish Free Press society Lars Hedegaard, the Danish Supreme Court ruled last Friday that he was not guilty after all of hate speech and racism – the second time he has been acquitted of this charge in a roller-coaster of a case which has stained Denmark’s reputation for justice, free speech and common-sense.

So a victory, certainly — but still only two cheers for Denmark’s legal system.  First, as has been the case throughout this saga, the acquittal – like the previous acquittal and conviction – turned merely on the narrow question of whether the remarks by Hedegaard which were in contention had been made in a private forum. The Supreme Court decided that he had had ‘no intention of disseminating his remarks to a wider audience’, and that therefore no offence had been committed.

Europe’s auto-immune disease

Melanie Phillips - 17 April 2012

Melanie Phillips Blog The Daily Mail

In decadent Europe, freedom of speech is dying. Loudly trumpeted as a ‘human right’ for any attacks on America, Israel, Christians or on the core values of the west, it is swiftly transformed into ‘hate speech’ and the shutters are slammed down on the speaker whenever Islam is in the frame.

Lars Hedegaard is President of the Danish Free Press Society, which is devoted to defending freedom of expression — particularly against the threat from radical Islam to extinguish it on the spurious grounds of ‘Islamophobia’.  With no sense of irony, Denmark is trying its damnedest to shut Hedegaard up on precisely those grounds.

The Prosecutor Lies in Wait

by Lars Hedegaard – April 23, 2012

Article 266b, under which I was charged, remains unchanged. Thus, we still have no right to refer to truth if we are indicted under this article.

I am satisfied that the Supreme Court has delivered a verdict in accordance with the evidence given in lower and superior court. The prosecution had this evidence before it decided to press charges so I cannot understand why it went ahead.

The prosecutor has burdened the courts and the taxpayers needlessly for more than two years.

This judgment is not necessarily a victory for free speech. Article 266b, under which I was charged, remains unchanged. It remains a disgrace to any civilised society and is an open invitation to frivolous trials. Thus, we still have no right to refer to truth if we are indicted under this article.

Free Speech Found Guilty by Europe

by Soeren Kern – April 23, 2012

The ruling showed that while Judaism and Christianity can be disparaged with impunity, speaking the truth about Islam is subject to swift and hefty legal penalties. The Supreme Court stressed that the substance of the charges — public criticism of Islam – is still a crime punishable by imprisonment. Under Danish law, it is immaterial whether a statement is true or false. All that is needed for a conviction is for someone to feel offended.

Lars Hedegaard, the president of the Danish Free Press Society, has been acquitted by the Danish Supreme Court on charges of “hate speech” for critical comments he made about Islam.

The verdict, however represents only a partial victory for free speech in a Europe that is being stifled by politically correct restrictions on free speech, particularly on issues related to Islam.

Intrepid Danish journalist, historian and President of the Free Press Society Lars Hedegaard, has been acquitted unanimously by a panel of seven Supreme Court justices.  led by Chief Justice Børge Dahl. Hedegaard was accused of intentionally denigrating Muslims in breach of Article 266b of the Danish Penal Code, which states,

Whoever publicly or with the intent of public dissemination issues a pronouncement or other communication by which a group of persons are threatened, insulted or denigrated due to their race, skin color, national or ethnic origin, religion or sexual orientation is liable to a fine or incarceration for up to two years.

Justice in Denmark: Supreme Court dismisses Lars Hedegaard’s racism and hate speech conviction

20 April 2012 – Jerry Gordon

There is sweet justice in Denmark. We received news that the Danish Supreme Court acquitted Lars Hedegaard, President of the Danish Free Press Society of Prosecutor charges of ‘racism’ and “hate speech under Article 266b of the penal code that were upheld in a conviction and fine by the Eastern Superior Court in May 2011.  The headline of the Supreme Court  press release was “Dismiss the case on insulting and degrading statements about Muslims “  This is a major victory for free speech in Denmark and the EU.  This legal victory in Denmark should also be welcome news to the Hon. Geert Wilders in The Netherlands and hopefully useful news for Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff in her legal proceedings in Austria. The opinion of the seven justices convened by the Danish Supreme Court was posted on the website of the Danish Supreme Court. Hedegaard indicated that he will have an English translation for us later today along with observations about the decision. As we can appreciate it he has been swamped with congratulatory phone calls and interviews by the Danish press. In our last post on  Hedegaard’s Supreme Court case heard last Friday, we noted:

Buying ‘Buffett Rule’ makes you a fool

Mark Steyn – April 14, 2012

In the end, free societies get the governments they deserve. So, if the American people wish to choose their chief executive on the basis of the “war on women,” the Republican theocrats’ confiscation of your contraceptives, or whatever other mangy and emaciated rabbit the Great Magician produces from his threadbare topper, they are free to do so, and they will live with the consequences. This week’s bit of ham-handed misdirection was “the Buffett Rule,” a not-so-disguised capital-gains tax hike designed to ensure that Warren Buffett pays as much tax as his secretary. If the alleged Sage of Omaha is as exercised about this as his public effusions would suggest, I’d be in favor of repealing the prohibition on Bills of Attainder, and the old boy could sleep easy at night. But instead every other American “millionaire” will be subject to the new rule – because, as President Obama said this week, it “will help us close our deficit.”

Wow! Who knew it was that easy?

Exodus

By Mark Steyn – April 17, 2012

As far as the media were concerned, the murder of Jewish schoolchildren in Toulouse and a black teenager in Florida were the same story — literally: Angry white male opens fire on “the other,” his deeply ingrained racism inflamed by the tide of toxic right-wing hate infecting our public discourse. Alas, in Florida, the angry white male turned out to be a registered Democrat and half Hispanic — or, as the New York Times put it, a “white Hispanic,” a descriptor never applied by its editors to, say, Sonia Sotomayor or Gloria Estefan or indeed any other person living or dead. And in Toulouse the angry white male turned out to be yet another Muhammad.

Oh, well. Better luck next time, although the pickings seem likely to get thinner: Pitch the Western world a decade or two down the road, riven by an ever-more-fractious tribalism between blacks, Hispanics, and Muslims, and the one surviving nonagenarian neo-Nazi white supremacist will be at the retirement home.

Q&A: Mark Steyn

by Phil Morgan on March 29, 2012

commentator Mark Steyn is awfully concerned about America’s future. He’s Hillsdale’s Eugene Pulliam Visiting Fellow in Journalism and will be teaching a two-week class “How to Write a Column.” He shared his thoughts on how much of a weirdo Rick Santorum is, what’s wrong with the Hunger Games, and why there is nothing like a good game of polo with a goat’s head.

PM: In a piece you wrote on Rick Santorum called “Weird Politics” you describe him as weird because he has traditional values. Are people who are traditional really considered weird today?

MS: It was interesting. Anytime I went into an ABC show all the people said, “How can Rick Santorum be a credible presidential candidate? He’s so weird.” Then I actually asked what’s weird about him. He’s weird because he believes marriage is between a man and a woman. He’s weird because the family is the basic building block of society. In fact, it was non-weird for almost all of human history. What’s interesting to me is not Santorum’s weirdness, but the fact that so much of what he says is now presumed to be weird. I think he’s right on the basic issue, which is that the crisis America faces is not primarily an accounting problem or a bookkeeping problem. We’re broke for a reason. This country is the most broke nation in history because it is not the republic of limited government and self-reliant citizenry De Tocqueville observed two centuries ago.

Video: Terror i Frankrig – Muhammed myrder vantro

Medierne hævder, at islamkritik fører til Breivik-fænomener. Så: logisk set må Israel-kritik føre til Muhammed-fænomener som det i Frankrig? Ik? Hvem kan måske afvise, at mængden af Muhammed-episoder i Vesten er ligefrem proportional med mængden af Israel-kritik? Der har vi beviset! Det er magisk: her ser vi, at mediernes røde ord skaber virkelighed. Det har ellers hidtil knebet gevaldigt med at få ord til at skabe virkelighed. Det hævder røde journalister jo, at de gør. Vi er flere, der gerne ser, at halalmedierne følger op på succesen og skaber den højt besungne fredelige islam. Mon Marine Le Pen nu får en undskyldning af journalisterne, der gav hendes ord skylden? Og Nicolas Sarkozy? Den franske præsident har helt korrekt sagt, at der er for mange indvandrere i Frankrig, beretter The Telegraph og Sarkozy har desuden truet med at opsige Schengen-aftalen, hvis ikke EU får styr på den illegale indvandring, skriver Børsen.

  • Omkring midnat 22.- 23. marts gjorde fransk politi et halvhjertet forsøg på at storme den lejlighed, hvor den 24-årige morder og terrorist, Muhammed Merah (Mohamed eller Mohammed), i 20 timer havde forskanset sig med Kalashnikov, Uzi og andre af den slags relikvier, hellige krigere bruger. Man har hørt eksplosioner i natttens løb, skriver Russia Today. Området blev mørklagt, fordi politiet afbrød strømforsyningen, skriver Ynetnews. Der er lukket for lejlighedens gas og vand. I følge politiet blev sprængningerne udført for at lægge pres på terroristen, fortæller The Globe and Mail. Ejendommes beboere blev evakueret via taget eller brandstiger. Torsdag ved frokosttid trængte politiet ind i lejligheden og Muhammed tog flugten ud gennem vinduet. Der var ildkamp til det sidste – terroristen skødt under faldet fra 1. sal og to betjente blev såret. Muhammed var død, da politiet fandt ham, skriver Jyllands-Posten.
  • Tidligere forsøg på at trænge ind i lejligheden måtte opgives. Muhammed skød også her og sårede to betjente, den ene blev ramt i skulderen og den anden i knæet, oplyser The Washington Post
  • Den 20. marts skød jihadisten Muhammed den 30-årige rabbiner, Jonathan Sandler og 2 af hans børn,  4-årige Gabriel og 5-årige Arieh ved en jødiske skole, Ozar Hatorah, i Toulouse. Også skoleinspektørens 8-årige datter, Miriam Monsonego, blev myrdet. Desuden blev en 17-årig dreng hårdt såret. Begravelserne har fundet sted – i Jerusalem. Alle dræbte børn var fra samme slægt, fortæller Arutz Sheva
  • Fransk politi har været i kontakt med den nu afdøde terrorist, skriver The Financial Times:

Mr Merah, reportedly of Algerian origin, told police he wanted to “bring France to its knees” in retaliation for French involvement in the Afghan war, the decision to ban the burka and the plight of the Palestinians. He made “no expression of remorse”, Mr Molins said, except that he had not carried out more killings.

  • Muhammed ringede til tv-stationen France24 og tilstod, skriver B.T.
  • Massakren i Toulouse var ikke Muhammeds første. Den 15. marts myrdede terroristen 2 faldskærmssoldater i Montauban og sårede en tredje. I Toulouse blev en soldat myrdet den 11. marts, skriver Wall Street Journal. De dræbte fra Montauban var hhv. 25 og 23 år gamle, skriver The Washington Post. Den 23-åriges kæreste er gravid i 7. måned.
  • Flere af de dræbte er muslimer. Det ses som forræderi i visse muslimske kredse at arbejde i de vantros tjeneste
  • Alle terrorangreb er udført med håndvåben. Jihadisten kørte på en Yamaha scooter og skjulte sig bag en styrthjelm. En “drive-by shooter”
  • Muhammed har filmet sin heltedåd med et videokamera spændt fast på brystkassen
  • Muhammeds kæreste og bror er anholdt. Der er fundet sprængstoffer i sidstnævntes bil, oplyser The National Post
  • Muhammed var fra Algeriet og Al Qaeda-medlem. Terror-trænet i Pakistan, skriver Russia Today
  • Jyllands-Posten:

Han blev anholdt i december 2007 i Kandahar-provinsen i Afghanistan og fængslet for at have udlagt bomber.  Han undslap fra fængslet sammen med omkring 1000 andre fanger, hvoraf halvdelen menes at være talebanere, da fængslet blev stormet af oprørere i juni 2008.

  • Kulturberigeren Muhammed stod på USAs liste over formodede terrorister, – den såkaldte no-fly list over folk der ikke må flyve til eller inden for USA, læser man i Jyllands-Posten
  • Samme i Frankrig. The Independent:

Mohammed Merah, the man suspected of the Toulouse killings, had been on a French security service “watch list” since 2008.

Laying the groundwork for the Toulouse massacre

By Melanie Phillips | 21 March 2012

When the Toulouse school massacre happened, the media rushed to say that the perpetrator was a white far-right racist. The lone gunman had mown down at close range a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school, wounding several others. He was thought to be the same killer who a few days earlier had murdered three black French paratroopers in two separate attacks. A killer who targeted Jews and blacks – must be a far-right white racist, right?

Wrong. The suspect who the French police have now cornered turns out to be a jihadi Islamic terrorist with self-declared links to al Qaeda, who has made trips to Afghanistan and Pakistan in the past. Well, there’s a surprise.

Mere HER i The Daily Mail. Melanie Phillips blog her.

The new Nazis kill them right in the cities. And the killing will not stop until the Muslim occupation of Europe comes to an end.

The New Nazis

Daniel Greenfield – March 22, 2012

There was a time when Jewish children were hunted down and killed in France. Their killers believed themselves to be members of a superior group that was destined to rule the world and enslave or exterminate members of inferior groups. The cowardice and appeasement of the French authorities allowed them to operate freely, to kill Jews and launch attacks on other countries.

What was then is now again. The occupying army doesn’t wear uniforms, it wears keffiyahs. It doesn’t speak German, it speaks Arabic. It doesn’t believe that it is superior for reasons of race as much as for reasons of religion. It does not view all others as Untermenschen, but as infidels. It looks forward not to a thousand year Reich, but to a thousand year Caliphate.

Mohammed Merah did not chase down a French-Jewish seven-year-old girl, put a gun to her head and pull the trigger because he came from an economically depressed area or any of the other media spin. He was only doing what Muslims had been doing to non-Muslims for over a thousand years. He didn’t do what he did because he was “radicalized”, he did it because he became a fully committed Muslim.

Lather, Rinse, and Repeat

By Mark Steyn – March 21, 2012

The killer of French schoolchildren and soldiers turns out to be a man called Mohammed Merah. The story can now proceed according to time-honored tradition:

Stage One: The strange compulsion to assure us that the killer is a “right wing conservative extremist,” in the words of NRO commenter ExpatAsia, echoed by Chrisman and Galt’s Bain. Up north, this view was shared by Canada’s most prominent establishment Jew and the Liberal Party attack poodle Warren Kinsella (whom NR readers may recall from my free-speech cover story, which mentioned the groveling apology he was forced to make to “the Chinese community” after an unfortunately sinophobic cat joke). The insistence that the killer was emblematic of an epidemic of right-wing hate sweeping the planet is, regrettably, no longer operative. Instead, the killer isn’t representative of anything at all.

Toulouse stand-off: explosions and gunfire

Michael Coren on France’s neo-Nazi Jew killer

The MSM and the Left screamed “Nazis!”, and he most certainly is, but it also turns out the mohammad coefficient on this one is 100%.

Time to have a close look t his manifesto – the Koran.

Michael Coren on islamic slaughterers

French muslims denounce Mohamed Merah . . . Not!!!

“And then, of course, Stage Four: The backlash that never happens. Because apparently the really bad thing about actual dead Jews is that it might lead to dead non-Jews: “French Muslims Fear Backlash After Shooting.” Likewise, after Major Hasan’s mountain of dead infidels, “Shooting Raises Fears For Muslims In US Army.” Likewise, after the London Tube slaughter, “British Muslims Fear Repercussions After Tomorrow’s Train Bombing.” Oh, no, wait, that’s a parody, though it’s hard to tell.”

- Mark Steyn

I love this clip: “French muslims denounce Merah!” “We just can’t find one to say so on TV” “Never mind those dead Jews, what about the imaginary threats to us muslims?”

Save the Middle East’s Christians

France will remain by the side of the Arab world’s embattled minority.

By Alain Juppé | February 28, 2012

Christians in the Middle East are worried. Worried about their survival in a region where they have lived for 2,000 years. Worried about their rights being respected at a time of major upheaval. Worried about heightened religious tensions. I want to tell them that I understand them, that I understand their fears.

For centuries, France has had a special mission with respect to Eastern Christians. It will not shy from it. That is why, in January 2011, President Nicolas Sarkozy established the framework of our policy, emphasizing that the fate of Eastern Christians symbolizes “the challenges of the globalized world we have irrevocably entered.”

France Goes Halal

by Soeren Kern – February 28, 2012

The halal issue is about more than just meat.

A French television documentary has revealed that all of the slaughterhouses in the greater Paris metropolitan area are now producing all of their meat in accordance with Islamic Sharia law.

The exposé broadcast by France 2 television also alleged that much of the religiously slaughtered meat known as halal is not labeled as such and is entering the general food chain, where it is being unwittingly consumed by the non-Muslim population.

The revelation has sparked political controversy in France, where Islam and the question of Muslim immigration has become a central issue in the presidential campaign.

Islam Looms in French Elections

by Soeren Kern – February 14, 2012

“We have been too busy with the identity of those who arrived and not enough with the identity of the country that accepted them.” – Nicolas Sarkozy

With just ten weeks to go until the first round of presidential elections in France, Islam and the question of Muslim immigration has become a central issue in the campaign.

France, home to between five and six million Muslims, has the largest Muslim population in the European Union; polls show that millions of French voters are worried about the proliferation in France of “separate Islamic societies” that are ruled by Islamic Sharia law.

Qatar Financing Wahhabi Islam in France, Italy, Ireland and Spain

by Soeren Kern – February 9, 2012

Qatar, the most fraudulent “moderate,” is “sparing no effort” to spread Wahhabi Islam across “the whole world,” discouraging integration, encouraging jihad.

The Persian Gulf Emirate of Qatar says it plans to invest €50 million ($65 million) in French suburbs that are home to hundreds of thousands of disgruntled Muslim immigrants.

Qatar says its investment is intended to support small businesses in disadvantaged Muslim neighborhoods. But Qatar, like Saudi Arabia, subscribes to the ultra-conservative Wahhabi sect of Islam, and critics say the emirate’s real objective is to peddle its religious ideology among Muslims in France and other parts of Europe.

France’s Tottery Effort to Reverse Creeping Islamization

by Soeren Kern – January 2, 2012

Muslim immigrants will find it more difficult to obtain French citizenship from now on.

New citizenship rules that entered into effect on January 1, 2012 will require all applicants to pass exams on French culture and history and also to prove that their French language skills are equivalent to those of a 15-year-old native speaker. Moreover, candidates seeking French citizenship will be required to pledge allegiance to “French values.”

The new measures — drawn up by Interior Minister Claude Guéant — are part of a concerted effort by the French government to push back against the Islamization of France.

Michael Coren with Mark Steyn: Steynamite! April 24 Toronto

While Dick Cheney may be too afraid to enter Canada, bestselling author Mark Steyn will be taking to the stage as a replacement with ‘Steynamite’, where Steyn will be taking his fearless brand of commentary and analysis to the stage for Torontonians to hear.

Ryan Ruppert, president of Spectre Live and organizer for the Cheney event said, “While we are disheartened that the Cheneys do not feel comfortable coming to Canada, we are gratified that our own Mark Steyn will not be intimidated either by protestors or government censors.” He added, “On April 24th, Mark will exercise his freedom of expression at the Metro Convention Centre with bestselling author Michael Coren.”

Tickets are available with discounted prices for earlybirds at Spectre Live’s Steynamite page.

Steynamite! Steyn & Coren in Toronto April 24

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter, Liz, were scheduled to do a speech in April at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. Now, six weeks away, organizers are announcing that the event has been canceled, citing security concerns.

Spectre Live, the organization sponsoring the Cheneys in Toronto issued a statement saying that the Cheney family made the unilateral decision to cancel their Toronto engagement after reconsidering fallout at the former Vice President’s last Canadian event.

In September of 2011, Dick Cheney was protested at a speech in Vancouver, where an NDP Member of Parliament threatened legal action against Cheney days prior.

While Dick Cheney may be too afraid to enter Canada, bestselling author Mark Steyn will be taking to the stage as a replacement with ‘Steynamite’, where Steyn will be taking his fearless brand of commentary and analysis to the stage for Torontonians to hear.

The Church of Big Government

By Mark Steyn – March 6th 2012

Discussing the constitutionality of Obamacare’s “preventive health” measures on MSNBC, Melinda Henneberger of the Washington Post told Chris Matthews that she reasons thus with her liberal friends: “Maybe the Founders were wrong to guarantee free exercise of religion in the First Amendment, but they did.”

Maybe. A lot of other constitutional types in the Western world have grown increasingly comfortable with circumscribing religious liberty. In 2002, the Swedish constitution was amended to criminalize criticism of homosexuality. “Disrespect” of the differently orientated became punishable by up to two years in jail, and “especially offensive” disrespect by up to four years. Shortly thereafter, Pastor Ake Green preached a sermon referencing the more robust verses of scripture, and was convicted of “hate crimes” for doing so.

The Fluke Charade

Why should we have to fund a middle-aged schoolgirl’s sex life?

I’m writing this from Australia, so, if I’m not quite up to speed on recent events in the United States, bear with me — the telegraph updates are a bit slow here in the bush. As I understand it, Sandra Fluke is a young coed who attends Georgetown Law, and recently testified before Congress.

Oh, wait, no. Update: It wasn’t a congressional hearing; the Democrats just got it up to look like one, like summer stock, with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid doing the show right here in the barn, and providing a cardboard set for the world premiere of Miss Fluke Goes to Washington, with full supporting cast led by Chuck Schumer strolling in through the French windows in tennis whites and drawling, “Anyone for bull****?”
