Who Needs Protection From Whom?

Shari Goodman of Act for America in Calabasas (California) has penned the below op-ed in the Canada Free Press in reaction to President Obama's visit to a Baltimore mosque this week. Contrary to what Obama said during his visit, American and Canadian Muslims are not in danger and don't need protection from anyone. However, there are a lot of people around the world who do need protection from Muslims.

Thanks, Shari.

Why Did Obama Choose the Baltimore Mosque?

Today, President Obama spoke at the Islamic Society Mosque of Baltimore. He spoke about Islamophobia. Apparently, he neglected to speak about the plight of Middle Eastern Christians who are being slaughtered by Muslims. Nor did he speak of Christian churches being burned in Egypt. Nor did he speak of the attacks against Jews in Europe-by Muslims.

Obama is also facing criticism over his particular choice of this mosque. Breitbart has some background information which centers around its former imam.

But there is much more to the ISB than ex-imam Mohamad Adam El-Sheikh. The Investigative Project on Terrorism, the encyclopedia of Islamic radicalism in the US, has much more on ISB, information on associations and statements that brings us up the present day.

Why could Obama not have considered a mosque with no past history, perhaps the mosque that Muslim reformer Zuhdi Jasser attends in Phoenix? The Obama administration, in its Muslim outreach, has ignored Jasser and his organization, The American Islamic Forum for Democracy. To be fair, the Bush administration also reached out to so-called moderate Muslims after 9-11, and now we are writing about some of these people who stood next to the president and talked of moderation. Some are in jail.

But what else would you expect from Obama? He has said next to nothing about the Christians being slaughtered in the Middle East. His refugee programs have all but ignored them while they work to being tens of thousands of  Muslim "refugees" from Syria and Iraq, some of whom will surely turn out to be ISIS terrorists.

I sympathize with innocent American Muslims who just want to be accepted and who mean us no harm. The fact remains that hate crimes against Muslims are much lower than crimes against Jews. With few exceptions, Americans have acted with restraint. What has given rise to charges of Islamophobia is the ever-increasing discussion among ordinary people who are trying to figure out why all these horrific things are happening. This discussion cannot be stopped (though the Europeans can try under their draconian hate speech laws).

President Obama may have gone to the Baltimore mosque with the best of intentions. With his choice of mosques, he did not help the situation.

Who You Gonna Blame Now, Hillary?

Hillary Clinton is running out of people to blame for being politically motivated when it comes to her email scandal. The State Department has now admitted that certain Clinton emails contained classified material. The below article is from the Washington Post-hardly a right-wing news outlet.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/01/29/the-state-department-concludes-there-is-top-secret-material-in-hillary-clintons-email-correspondence-from-her-time-as-secretary-of-state/?postshare=5011454171850020&tid=ss_mail

One can only wish the the Post was dedicating resources to this story as they did during Watergate, but it is good to know that more readers are seeing the story in print.


"The Friday announcement was significant because it appeared to undercut Clinton’s argument in recent months that she was merely the victim of a bureaucratic squabble between overly strict analysts at the intelligence agencies and more reasonable reviewers at the State Department."

Hillary and her camp are now not just blaming Trey Gowdy and the Republicans. Now they are taking shots at the intelligence community. Soon they will be blasting the FBI.

Is everybody out there politically motivated to bring down poor Mrs Clinton?

And isn't it a hoot that the Clinton campaign is calling for the State Department to release the contents of those 22 emails mentioned in the latest report? For reasons of transparency, no less. They know full well that those emails cannot be released to the public because of their stated sensitivity. How disingenuous!

The late Christopher Hitchens, I recall, wrote a book about Bill Clinton entitled, "No one left to lie to".  That, of course, has applied to Hillary for a long time. Soon it will be, "No one left to blame."
